Eternal Life:


John 17:3-5 (NAS) Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent. I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave Me to do. And now, Father, glorify Me in Your presence with the glory I had with You before the world began.


Please know with full assurance that God does, always has and always will, work all things for good for those who love Him (Genesis 50:20; Romans 8:28). There is nothing that slips by Him. Satan means everything against God’s people for evil, no question about it. Adam simply did not know how to be led by anything other than his soul. That in itself would be considered knowledge and he had none.

 Since Adam’s death, death is no longer the punishment, but rather the gift (Romans 6:1-11)! Satan meant death unto mankind as evil, but God meant it to us for our good and God’s good, glory and honor. Yeshua knew that Adam would fall. He also knew that anytime He is loved by any person who chooses death for His sake is humble and truly loves Him. Humility defeats the enemy and death is the ultimate level of humility.

This does not mean muttering some sinner’s prayer. This is total sell out to God. This is saying, “Lord, all I have and all I am is Yours. Do with me what You will. I put my complete faith in You. I believe, help me with my unbelief. Here I am. You are my God and I am Your people.”  

Salvation is not the end, but the beginning of an incredible over the top journey with God here on earth. There is nothing so incredible as a sold out life with Christ; to have Him speak into your spirit directly and to guide your every move!

Discerning Good from Evil:

Adam and Eve were born into perfection; we are born into imperfection. They came knowing no evil; we come into the world knowing evil. Even small babies know how to manipulate by crying. They catch on to that within days, if not moments. We have to be taught what is right. Adam and Eve had to come into knowledge of what is wrong. We have to come into knowledge of good. Only through Holy Spirit can one truly separate good from evil. Without His Spirit inserted within us and then activated, grey areas will constantly overwhelm us.

Even those with good morals and the best intentions are often unable to decipher good from evil. Confusion sets in. Since Satan is the author of confusion, without Holy Spirit activated, he has a foothold in us. This is why Christ-followers have such a difficult time. Few people within the Body of Christ have any knowledge or understanding of Holy Spirit’s role in their lives. Holy Spirit is not a “what” but a “Who.” We generally hear of Him only at water baptism which is tragic because, aside from Him, there is no life – only death.   

I believe that God always wanted man to have complete knowledge, but He knew all this hardship would have to be endured by all generations of Adam. Man’s flesh is so strong-willed that most people, most followers of The Way, are in love with their flesh (creation) instead of God (Creator). They either becoming lukewarm wanting both the world’s charms and knowledge of God which renders them useless; or they become cold and indifferent toward God because they never experience His magnificence.

To clarify, evil doesn’t necessarily mean just the murdering rapist on skid row. It is any part of our selfish flesh that we do not surrender totally to God. Rebellion is any area where we willingly refuse to do exactly as He instructs.

The Curse:


“The Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you more than all cattle…on your belly you will go, and dust you will eat all the day of your life…cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you will eat of it all the days of your life (Genesis 3:14 & 17, NIV).”


God said there is a curse on the ground (from whence man came) and that Satan would “eat dust” all the days of his life. As Watchman Nee points out in Love Not the World, Adam is “dust” and he is “from the ground.” Authority has been given to Satan to eat or rather, devour man who is dust (of the ground). Because Adam is of the ground, any and every generation to come from Adam is irreversibly cursed to be devoured by the evil one. Only death will suffice to be freed of the curse and to attain a new life separate from the curse.


“Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever (Genesis 3:22, NIV).”


God says, “Like One of Us,” not “like Us,” in the Trinity’s totality. After eating of the fruit, man became “like God” in the fact that Adam and Eve then knew good and evil. We could aptly say that they knew evil intimately. Evil was inside them and they became aware of it. They merged with evil because Holy Spirit was not awakened inside of them to allow them to overcome it. And so, the transformation of being “like Us” was still incomplete and could not be tolerated to come to fruition.

“Since tasting knowledge,” He states, “he (man) might stretch out his hand and take from the tree of life (the other tree) and eat and live forever (like the Trinity).” God was saying that, in fact, man, if allowed to stay in the garden, would continue to eat of the tree of life allowing them to be as God Himself and live forever, like God yet wicked. This is why they had to be removed and eventually physically die.

Man, the fleshly man, cannot live forever. Sinful flesh cannot be accepted in the presence of God. There can be and will always be only one God. For this same reason, Satan’s pride of desiring to be as God was cast from the presence of God. Man sinned exactly as did Satan, therefore reaping the same penalty: expulsion and death eternal. 


 “Therefore the Lord God sent him out from the Garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken (Genesis 3:23, NIV).”


Man’s punishment was to labor over the very ground/dust from which he came, now destined to be eaten, consumed, and destroyed by Satan. Adam and Eve brought this on themselves. Although they both tried to pass the buck of guilt, that was unacceptable behavior in the presence of the Almighty. They had to take responsibility for their own actions. They sowed rebellion and reaped death. Regardless of who sinned first or last, death was the punishment for all.

How utterly wicked, vile and corrupt is the very core of man that God would have to send a cherubim (Genesis 3:24) with a flaming sword. Obviously, He knew that man would try again and again to overtake the garden to get to the tree of life to attain “godship,” to overthrow God. Let me add that God in His sovereignty, even after all of this, allows us to be like One of Them. He sent Jesus Christ, One of Them, to bear our transgressions that we may die with Him and, after death (spiritually), live a Spirit-filled life on this earth.

God is now giving us exactly what Adam and Eve wanted, but sinned to attain: knowledge. Now, we have to be obedient unto death to our fleshly nature to attain knowledge so as to live.

Requirements of Knowledge:


“When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings (Genesis 3:6-7, NAS).”


Notice that their eyes were not opened when she ate, but when he ate. When Adam ate, then their eyes were opened (awakened). This is because Adam was the authority God set in place. Their spiritual eyes were now opened. They knew what God knew. Immediately knowledge of God came forth as they ate of the tree. Therefore, just as God warned, death was imminent. This is a curse that cannot and will not be reversed; it comes to all flesh which brings us back to the necessity of dying to the nature of the flesh so as to allow Holy Spirit life to rule whilst we remain in physical human form.

The requirement, aka payment, to receive the knowledge of God is death. From then until this day, to receive true knowledge of and from God, who He is, how He is, and to gain understanding and wisdom that is from above, death has to transpire. A person who is alive only in the natural, though he can on his own gain information, can never grasp the truth of that which is spiritual.

God is spirit; hence, it stands to reason that it’s only when you consign the natural man to God (death) so as to allow your spirit-man to become awakened (life) will you be capable of attaining knowledge. The toll for Adam and Eve to gain the knowledge of good and evil was death and so it is today.

To reiterate, the tree of knowledge of good and evil had the same effect as the Sword of the Spirit. He ate and he knew. When you eat the Word of God, the Sword that divides, your soul and spirit are instantly divided. This eating does not mean sitting around day in and day out touching, looking at, hearing, or even reading the Bible. It means to purpose to consume (ingest, take into self, become one with, die to self) all that is God. Ezekiel was commanded to eat the scroll, the Word of God.

The Root of the Problem, part III

 Proper Application:

“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit (Hebrews 4:12, NAS)…”


Just as there was the Promise to Abraham and his descendants, singularly and collectively, there are also individual promises, plural, that we can reap through obedience. Jesus bore the curse, singular, of all mankind on the cross, but there are curses, plural (such as the problems with husbands and wives), that need to be broken individually after salvation by properly applying the blood Christ provided.

Adam was not in love with God although God created him in His own image to love Him. God breathed life into Adam just as He breathes life into all who call upon His name. Holy Spirit was present, but his spirit was still attached to his soul (mind, will, and emotions). Only with the separation of the soul and spirit by the Living Word of God is Holy Spirit allowed to function from the inside out. Adam’s spirit still lay dormant because God dealt with Him externally. Holy Spirit, though present, was not allowed to rule. Adam’s soul quenched Holy Spirit and eventually, Adam’s mind, will and emotions overtook him and they ruled in the stead of Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit was not properly applied.

We see this in multitudes of believers who receive Holy Spirit at salvation, but still allow their soul to control them. Their soul is still reigning as the authority instead of Holy Spirit. This is why people in the Body of Christ still act foolishly though they profess Christ. Once Adam and Eve ate (consumed) of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, knowledge divided their souls from their spirits (just like the power of the Sword of the Spirit) immediately. An awakening occurred, just not the desired one.

Current Problems Stem from Eden:


“When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate (Genesis 3:6, NIV).”


Herein lays the problem of most men and women throughout the generations.  First, man had the role of guarding the garden and all that was in it. By deferring to the woman to make a decision, he not only gave over his authority to Satan, but he also gave his authoritative role to the woman. This was a blatant act of rebellion against God. All the way to present day, women struggle with the complacency of men in some area or another just as Adam was complacent in his role of leadership over his domain. Men struggle with women dominating them just as did Eve.

Understand that Adam, because he was the one to whom the Lord gave authority, ushered this curse and it needs to be treated and handled as such – a curse for which Christ died. Through the blood of the Lamb, anyone who is willing can walk differently, supernaturally instead of naturally. Individuals need to bring it before God in repentance and break this yoke by the blood of the Lamb.


Understanding Submission:


“Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God (Ephesians 5:21, KJV).”


Adam’s place was not only to say “no” to Eve, but also to lovingly direct her to say “no” to the enemy. This is the very reason that women (generally speaking) set the standard in a relationship with a man, whether it is spiritual, sexual, financial, or other. Adam allowed the woman to set the standard, therefore, so it is today. God gave the authority to Adam to set a standard and this is the standard he chose. This cycle must be broken from homes and the rightful role of authority handed back to the husband, the head of the woman and their home.

When done properly, the woman will no longer have to run things. She will become her husband’s helper – neither will have to dominate the other as they will operate in their God-ordained role – they will live harmoniously instead of nearly killing one another with poor attitudes, harsh words or devastating silence.

In the New Testament, we the Body of Christ are instructed that the wife is to submit to her husband. However, in like fashion, we all are to “submit one to another” so that the greater good of the Kingdom of God will manifest in the earth. Because of the rebellion of both Adam and Eve, the power struggle continues this day. No one seems to want to humble themselves one to another; husband to wife or wife to husband. Imagine a world where both people in a marriage were so set on pleasing Yahweh that humility reigned. Wow! Neither would ever have to beg or use controlling manipulation.  When we can get to the root of any problem, it can be resolved.

There is a looming curse over women dating all the way back to Eve as we see in the above verse. Eve was led by the lust of her flesh. Just as Adam gave up authority to Eve, she sought after it hot and heavy. She brought in a controlling, manipulative evil spirit on women. Women all over the world nag their husbands to step up to the proverbial plate. When he does finally decide to do so, most of the time the wife resists.

Women have an innate desire to control, coerce and manipulate. Many women say with their lips, “You need to be a man and take charge,” yet actions speak a very different message. Wives need to allow husbands to make decisions even if it means letting them make mistakes along the way. Women with sons, teach them how to be men of God. It’s time to relinquish headship over to our husbands.

Women are to submit, not control. Men are to love their wives as Christ loves the Church, not control. This will lead both to submit one to another. By understanding the lack of Holy Spirit leading in Adam, Eve and the modern day Christ-follower, we can certainly see how the problem has escalated over time. Since Jesus bore the curse of the nature of the flesh for all mankind, by properly applying His blood, there’s no reason for us to continue in Adam and Eve’s footsteps.

Once we begin to seek first the Kingdom of God, we’ll begin to delve into the Kingdom Constitution (Bible) and desire most earnestly to pledge our allegiance to the King, His Kingdom and His edicts. Peace and joy will follow.

“But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When He was hung on the cross, He took upon Himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, ‘Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree (Galatians 3:13, NLT).’”

Withstanding the Whiles of the Enemy

Posted on


Mark 1:9-13 (NAS): In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opening, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him; and a voice came out of the heavens: “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.” Immediately the Spirit impelled Him to go out into the wilderness. And He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan; and He was with the wild beasts, and the angels were ministering to Him.


Although God created man, man was still not otherworldly, but rather of the earth. This explains why, though the tempter had not yet approached Adam and Eve, worldliness was innate in them. Because they were earthly, when the tempter did come, fall was not only easy, but natural. It was the earthly or rather, the fleshly, thing to do, because they were “of the earth/ground.” They were in fact natural creatures whereas God is supernatural. Jesus, who is God (otherworldly, supernatural, from heaven) had to come to give us access to God through His death and resurrection.

Through our own individual crucifixion of self and receiving the supernatural life of Christ, we become otherworldly – born of the Kingdom of God, aka no longer “of the earth.” Becoming supernatural from heaven occurs, not just by God coming to earth, but by receiving the deposit of Holy Spirit. Only God Himself, the Trinity, could withstand the wiles of the tempter; Jesus entered the wilderness only after being anointed/baptized into Holy Spirit.

Because God gave authority to Adam, God tied His own hands from being able to protect Adam and Eve from their fall. Had they not been given such authority, God could have intervened. God put man on the earth to rule/govern the earth as He rules heaven; therefore this will always be – man ruling the earth. It would behoove God’s people to get used to ruling because, with the new earth in our future, we are coming back to stay and rule! It’s time God’s holy bride learns now how to rule the earth as originally intended and that can only be accomplished through following the lead of Holy Spirit in all things.

In the grand scheme of God’s Kingdom perspective, protection for Adam was not God’s goal – only death was His plan so that through it, man may come to receive true life, eternal life. Only through Christ manifesting His supernatural life through man can anyone withstand the schemes of Satan; it isn’t attainable by simply memorizing Scripture and using will power. Only God can do what God can do. In dying to self or in other words, accepting as fact that the flesh was crucified with Christ a long time ago and it is already dead, we would be free of the flesh allowing only God’s will to manifest in the earth. God freely exerts His power that we may withstand Satan’s fiery darts just as did Jesus.

God is Sovereign and His plan is always perfect. He knew that man could not bear the temptation (whiles) of Satan and that the temptation would kill Adam and his kind. God’s knew that He could only have a perfect man if the man were God Himself; God in the flesh. In essence, Adam was a canister that was full of self and sin. Through The Fall, God was able to empty the canister to then come and fill it with Holy Spirit. Man cannot resist Satan, but once we are empowered by Holy Spirit, we are able because He who is in us is more than able and already accomplished resistance to every temptation. Holy Spirit does the resisting through us. Through Christ, all things are possible.

Love vs. In Love, part III

Posted on Updated on


Philippians 3:7-11: But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ, and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.


The average person sees physical life as gain, yet Paul states that “all is loss” in order to have knowledge. Have you personally ever loved to the degree of doing anything for another person? More so, have you ever loved God so much that you would commit suicide just to know Him? To reiterate, we are talking about suicide of the sinful fleshly desires, not literal suicide of the physical body. What Christ did physically, we now are required to do in the spiritual sense.

People who think they are to physically harm their physical body are misguided and completely misinterpret the instruction of the Word of God. You cannot beat or burn out impurity or the sin nature because it is spiritual. As a matter of fact, we are to take great care of this earthen vessel because it is the instrument for through which Jesus is able to exert His physical manifestation in the earth.

Spiritually speaking, perpetually consigning the nature of the fleshly man to death is the only way to attain resurrection from the dead. After all, one must first be dead to receive new life. You must be rid of the old before taking on the new. The Law had to come to reveal the wickedness inside every person.

The law reveals the way to death to the nature of sinful flesh which leads to life eternal. Death does not come easily to anyone and does not seem to be a small price. However, everything measured against the knowledge of God is but rubbish. The giving up of your own selfish man is a nominal sacrifice compared to all The King of kings offers. Falling in love with Jesus allows us to have greater ease in giving all of ourselves to the One who gave all. In this condition of love, seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness above any earthly desires becomes a pleasure instead of a grueling task.

Love vs. In Love, part I

Possessed Definition:

1. Owning or mastering something. Used with of: one who is possessed of great wealth.

2. Controlled by or as if by a spirit or other force; obsessed: a teenager by love possessed.

3. (usually postpositive) under the influence of a powerful force, such as a spirit or strong emotion


When we are in love with someone, we refuse to purposely hurt them; we do all we can not to hurt them as well as protect them from pain that could come from any other source. When we love because we feel that it is the right thing to do, we are easily swayed into temptation. That love is false; fickle; temporary – of dead flesh.

 Forced love is not love at all, just deception. God is love and He desires for us to love Him with the same love He pours out upon all mankind. He desires for us to love Him with His own love. This is only possible if Holy Spirit is awakened inside of us through consigning the earthly nature to death without ceasing.

Receiving Holy Spirit who is given at salvation is vastly different than being possessed by Holy Spirit and we need to allow Him to utterly possess and consume us. Just because you have/own something does not mean you are possessed by it. To be possessed means to be completely consumed, overtaken – can’t do anything without thought of that which possesses you. To fall “in love” with Christ is the only way to possess Christ and equally be completely possessed by Him. We must be overtaken.

We must acknowledge the flesh’s condition of death and not give into its lusts and desires. The flesh in which our spirit and the Spirit of God dwell cannot love as Jesus loves. We, on our own, can only attempt to imitate His love, but will always fall short. We cannot truly love without Yahweh expressing His love through our body and that requires our complete surrender – total possession – absolute consumption. It’s an oneness; Christ and our spirit completely merged as one; no separation.

Isn’t it interesting that one of the definitions of “possession” is to be “under the influence of a powerful force, such as a spirit.” Why is it that we only think of spirit-possession as one being possessed by an evil spirit or the devil? Why do we give so much power and attention to Satan than The Spirit? The definition of “possession” also includes words such as “owned,” “mastered,” “controlled,” and “under the influence.” Aren’t we to be owned, mastered, controlled and under the influence of Holy Spirit always? When we are, it ensures a successful Kingdom of God, action packed, supernatural life right here on planet earth!

Enter Life Through Death, part III

Posted on


God Communes with Himself in Us:

“…that though they are judged in the flesh as men, they may live in the spirit according to the will of God (I Peter 4:6, NAS).”

“God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth (John 4:24, NAS).”

“For we are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh (Philippians 3:3, NAS).”


A mere mortal does not have the capacity in his flesh to contain the knowledge of Almighty God. To know God is to be in relationship with God on the deepest level. To be in a genuine relationship with Yeshua is to rid ourselves of self. Since sin cannot remain in the presence of God, He cannot be in relationship with anyone but Himself. Only He is sinless.

This is why we all had to die. It was so that through death (spiritually) we were positioned to receive the Spirit of God through the blood of Jesus. In this, God doesn’t commune with our flesh but with Himself merged with our spirit; it’s a Spirit to spirit connection.

The only laws in tact at that time were “don’t eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil” and the “law of increase.” The only command was “don’t eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” The law of increase was not a command but a law set in motion by God without question or choice. God told Adam and Eve not to partake of knowledge when He told them not to eat of the tree. He loved them and did not desire that they die. But alas, that was the only feasible plan. Death had to come. Otherwise, God would be communing with a people who did not choose Him and were communing out of a sense of obligation. If Adam had been in love with God, he would not have given in to temptation.

What an exquisite thing for mere mortals to be welcomed into the presence of such a holy, righteous, sovereign God, our Creator! All that is required is to die to the selfish, tainted nature of Adam in which we are born so as to allow God Almighty to enter and merge with us as one entity. It is a privilege, indeed, that very few choose.
