EXPRESS IMAGE

24. September, 2017IAM InternationalNo comments

Beloved just as Jesus Christ in the form of human flesh was the express image of the Father. God has planned for you and me in the form of human flesh to be the express image of Christ to a hurting, lost and dying world. (1 John 3:2; Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.) (1 John 4:17; Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.)

God is a God of plan, purpose, design and objectivity. God planned thru Christ death and resurrection, Many sons would be born who would be the EXPRESS image of  HIS son Jesus Christ. That we would also become joint heirs with HIM. Beloved Jesus stripped Himself of His divine attributes , came to earth in the form of human flesh. Was anointed by the Holy Ghost, lived a sinless life, healed the sick, cast out demons,  raised the dead and defeated satan on every occasion- leaving us an example to follow. ( Philp 2:5-8; Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.)

Jesus life on earth as a son of God is to be our example of how our lives as sons of god should be.  We must grasp this revelation. Beloved you are part of God’s end-time plan . He has planned for you to be the EXPRESS Image of Jesus here on the earth. Beloved we often struggle through the weakness of our flesh , knowing our human limitations but in Christ Jesus we can do all things. Our confidence should never be in our own human ability but only in God’s ability in us to bring to pass what He has ordained. This type of divine life in Christ is Radical (departure from the usual or traditional) Christianity compared to the  wish-washy that we see in the world today. Beloved we must depart from the dry, dead religious traditions of man and become radical for God! Traditional religion has taught us that it is not possible for a son and daughter of God to walk in the POWER of God! Beloved we have been taught by religious leaders that it the gifts of the Holy Spirit have passed away.  We have brought the level of our experiences  down to match our experience instead of our experiences being raise to conform with the word of God.

Beloved you must get the revelation of who you are right now in Christ Jesus. You can walk among men on this earth as a son of almighty God.  Beloved as Jesus walked the earth as the EXPRESS Image of the Father, you can walk the face of the earth as the EXPRESS Image of God! Beloved when you realize, when you know beyond any doubt who you are in Christ Jesus, you will KNOW.

  • That God has begotten you by His spirit
  • That God has birthed the life of Christ , the all powerful, eternal son of God in you.
  • That the fullness of the Godhead dwells in you.
  • That you are daily by His Spirit being transformed into the very image of His son.
  • That you are a joint heir with Christ.
  • That everything Christ has now belongs to you.

The Indwelling Christ

23. September, 2017IAM InternationalNo comments

Jesus as the son of God was conceived by Holy Spirit in the womb of Mary and the very Life of Christ was conceived in you by Holy Spirit. According to the good pleasure of His will God has sent forth the Spirit of His son to dwell in your heart (Inner-man).

God has birthed Christ Life in your Spirit which was once dead by reason of Adam’s sin but now is alive in Christ Jesus! 2 Corinthians 5:17; Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away : behold all things become new. Your old man is dead, it was crucified with Christ (Romans 6:6) so that the body of sin might be destroyed.

The Father did not call you by His Spirit , cleanse you of your sins and then leave you to live your own life and serve Him the best you can. God has placed His life and the very Life of His Holy eternal son within you. Just as Jesus lived His whole life by the indwelling Father, you are to live your life through Christ that lives and dwells in you!

Just as your physical body cannot live without food and nourishment , neither can your spirit live unless you feed it- drawing the Life and nourishment from Christ. There must be a continual dependence on Christ , a continual drawing of strength, a continual “abiding” in Him and His word. Beloved it is in this union with Him that His life can be lived in and through you!

Jesus lived His life on earth by the Father who sent Him. He said, And He that sent me is with me: The Father has not left me alone (John 8:29).  I am in the Father and the Father is in me ( John 14:10). Jesus  words, His actions, His works, were the result of the Father living in Him. Jesus said, the words that I speak unto you , I speak not of myself : But the Father that dwells in me He doth the works (John 14:10).

Because God has made you one of His sons, you can now live your life through Christ who dwells in you. And because God dwells in Christ, He also dwells in you!  Jesus said, If a man loves me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him and we will come unto him and make our abode with him ( John 14:23).  It is this perfect union, God the Father dwelling in Christ, Christ the son of God dwelling in you that you are able to live the express image of Christ on the earth.

Colossians 2:9-10; For in Him all the fullness of Deity (the Godhead) dwells in bodily form [completely expressing the divine essence of God]. 10 And in Him you have been made complete [achieving spiritual stature through Christ], and He is the head over all rule and authority [of every angelic and earthly power].  Jesus prayed that we would all come into the unity in Him that they all may be one; just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us,  (JOHN 17:21).

I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected and completed into one, so that the world may know [without any doubt] that You sent Me, and [that You] have loved them, just as You have loved Me ( John 17:23). Beloved when you get this revelation of unity with God the Father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit living in you, you will begin to live the Life of Jesus, a life of power, a life without limits. You will begin to let Christ live His Life through you! You will begin to walk like Him, talk like Him, heal like Him and set all the captives free as He did when He walked the earth.

 

Biblical Warning

25. June, 2017IAM InternationalNo comments

 

Hebrews 6:4-6, warns against falling away from the faith and those who do, cannot not be brought back to repentance because they are “crucifying the Son of God all over again.” 58% of American Christians now believe that there are many ways to God and all other religions are equally valid.
Beloved when we become weak spiritually and cast down “TRUTH”, we open the door for all sorts of satanic advances. Is it any wonder that the great apostasy of the church and within the church is directly associated with the revealing of the Antichrist and start of the tribulation period! Today many Christians are more afraid of what people think than what God thinks. They want to be “politically “correct instead of Biblically correct.

Here are some shocking truths…ignore them at your peril!

2 Thes 2:3 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away (apostasy) comes first and the man of sin be revealed the son of perdition.”

1 Tim 4:1 “The Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons” Verse 3 goes on “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine and with itching ears they will heap up for themselves teachers and turn from the truth.”
2 Thes 2:10 “Because they did not receive the love of the truth, God sent them strong delusion so that they would believe the lie!”
Matt 24:12 “The love of many will grow cold” (This is one of our Lord’s warnings relating to the time period of His second coming)
Romans 11 Warns that God will “cut off” the gentile church if they come against His plan to re-graft the Jews back into salvation

The Revelation of Jesus Christ paints a picture of the church from its foundation to its end. The letters to the seven churches are very revealing indeed. Of the seven there are two that relate to this. The church of Philadelphia is the church that goes from strength to strength. It is the church that “kept My word” On the other hand the church of Laodicea is the church that our Lord says he will “spit out of His mouth”. This is the lukewarm church! And it is lukewarm to TRUTH that is the problem!

Wake up Church!!

 

 

 

 

BIBLICAL DISCIPLINE

28. August, 2014IAM InternationalNo comments

 Hebrews Chapter 12 deals with God’s correction
of His sons, which is mandatory for all to heed unless we want to become
“: bastards”. ( 12 is the number of judgment ) God’s discipline is
profitable for those who receive it. God’s Word is  profitable for discipline in obedience
according to 2 Tim. 3: 16 + 17 Amp. Church discipline is mandatory for straying
saints, when they disobey, because if sin is not dealt with, it shall increase
to more and more ungodliness, infecting many more people. When a leader becomes
involved in deception, he disqualifies himself from leadership. See
qualifications for leadership in I Tim. 3 and Titus 1: 5- 15. All of us are to
be subject to God’s appointed leaders over us, as they follow the Lord and His
Word. If we are in trouble we must seek Godly counsel from those whose house is
in order. If our house is in disarray, we must step out of leadership, until
healing and deliverance occurs, and what is in error is corrected. When people
swerve from a good conscience and still desire to be teachers, they’re the
blind leading the blind and they are on the way to shipwreck!  ( I Tim. 1; 5- 7, 18- 20 , 4: 1 + 2 ; Titus
1: 10- 15 )  Jesus says in Rev. 3: 19,
” As ,many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Be zealous then and
repent!” Prov. 3: 11+ 12 says , ” My son, despise not the chastening
of the Lord, neither be weary of His correction, For whom the Lord loves He
corrects; even as a father the son in whom He delights.”  See also Prov. 24: 24 + 25 for the blessing
you receive when you rebuke error.

What is our part as Godly leaders when we see someone in danger? We are to preach the Word to
them…reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. The
Amplified of II Tim. 2 says  whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable, convenient or
inconvenient, welcome or unwelcome- you as preacher of the Word are to show
people in what way their life is wrong.”  The next verse speaks of many who will turn away and go to teachers that
are chosen to satisfy their own liking to foster the errors that they hold.
Therefore we must all be speaking the same thing- what the Word says about
situations, speaking the Truth in love- not compromising it because of personal
alliances. or soulish emotions or fear of man or desire for popularity We know
that these are the Last Days when people will want to do their own thing ( II
Tim.3: 1- 9 ). These verses instruct us to turn away from people who are truce-
breakers, who love pleasures more than God. Verse 13 warns that evil men and
seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. So our order
of process is to first give someone the Word on the area of need. If they
continue in their behavior, we are then to release them and cut off association
with them ( no matter how we personally feel ). This is the true love of God,
not  ” sloppy agape”- a fake worldly view of ” Oh brother, we need to love and coddle them. Maybe they’ll
wake up. It’s not so bad. Everything will be alright.” Everything will NOT
be alright if  WE are not doing what the
Word says ourselves, and we are enabling sin in the camp! See what happened in
Joshua Chapter 7 when Achan disobeyed God. The entire company of God’s people
could no longer win any battles until the sin was uncovered and atoned for.
God’s leaders must be strong and bold to declare God’s will and way if we
expect to win our battles! Otherwise we ourselves will be removed from
kingship. See Saul in I Sam. 13: 13 + 14 and 15: 22- 26. Hello. God’s promises
and prophecies are conditional , hinging upon whether we will obey Him or not. No
one is irreplaceable. We are only leaders as we follow the lead of the Holy
Spirit and the Holy Word. Pride comes before and fall and the fear of man
brings a snare.

The leaders of IAM International must make a Covenant with the Lord this day to stand together
on the Truth of the Bible and obey it. Two cannot walk together unless there is
agreement. In our own personal lives and for the sake of the people following
us, we have to address areas of known sin. If people will not hear
admonition,  Titus 3: 10 tells us to
reject the one in error where there is no repentance and change of
behavior.  Eph. 4: 15- 27 and 5: 3- 17 make this abundantly clear. Don’t let anyone deceive you. Have no fellowship
with unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Don’t be partakers
with them. It is unacceptable to the Lord if people are ignoring Him and going
the wrong way. He loves them, so He gives us guidelines to hopefully bring them
to their senses, by separating ourselves from them. He loves the person but hates
the sin. His discipline is always for the purpose of redemption, not
punishment. But if we who are spiritual are seeming to support the wrong
behavior by continuing to fellowship with them,
we become party to their sins. When we cease from fellowship, the goal
is that they would be ashamed and repent so they can get help and be restored. (
2 Thess. 3: 6- + 14 ). Paul’s command is to withdraw yourself from the
unrepentant one!   Back in Eph. 5, St. Paul follows these verses
with a portrait of Jesus and the Bride of which marriage is a symbol. In this
age of permissiveness, there are many who are deceived into easy divorces and
worldly relationships. But God hates divorce! He is the Lord Who changes not! Jesus
says, ” What God has joined together, let not man put asunder!” Paul
writes that we should not separate from nor put away pour covenant marriage
partners. in I Cor. 7: 10 + 11 + 27. This chapter follows  chapters 5 and 6, which address not keeping
company with those involved in various types of sin. ” Put away from among
yourselves that wicked person.” Why? Because a little leaven leavens the whole lump. And we are to be
judges of those within the church, not allowing the Bride,  Whom Jesus loves and died for, to be defiled.
God wants strong families, strong churches and strong leaders who rightly
divide the Word of God and who are not ashamed of Him and His Words. We must be
bold and courageous in this hour of increasing deception upon the Church. We
must tell our followers the whole counsel of God and not just feed them “dessert”
scriptures; otherwise they will be unhealthy! Teach them to judge themselves,
so they won’t be sickly and die early. Sure, you may not have the largest
church- but at least you will have a church which is going to heaven. We must
give an account for our people before the Lord and teachers have a far greater
responsibility and incur more serious condemnation ( James  3: 1 ), if we don’t tell others the truth and
do it ourselves, following the scriptural pattern of Biblical discipline. Jesus
talks about this in .Math. 18: 15- 17. Are we wiser than Jesus?

Nobody is happy about this need for Bible
discipline, except for those who have been taught thoroughly the benefits of
doing things God’s way. One person in rebellion can affect adversely many
others, if we don’t nip sin in the bud. To delay is only to invite further
confusion and infection. What we compromise to keep, we will ultimately lose.
Those we oversee are not ours- they belong to God- so we must follow the rule
book in order to be good undershepherds. We cannot be yoked with unbelievers (
those resisting God’s Word ). We are to come out from among them and be
separate ( I Cor. 6: 14- 18 ), if we want to be true sons and daughters of God.
Peter also wrote a severe warning in II Pet. 3: 17 + 18.  Beware! Church splits occur when people side
with fleshly things instead of what God says. Our job is to be faithful to
Jesus and help others stay on the right path. Are we to try to reconcile the
errant one? Yes, according to James 5: 20 and II Tim. 2: 24- 26. But if they
continue on their wayward path, ignoring instruction- we must tell it to the
Church,  rebuking sin-  so others can learn the fear of the Lord. ( I
Tim. 5: 20 ) It’s NOT OK with God if we are cowardly. He wants us to hate sin,
and love and obey Him!

 

KINGDOM POWER!

28. September, 2013IAM InternationalNo comments

The  majority of preaching done in the name of the Lord Jesus today is without the power of Holy Spirit!!   This is not the way the Lord intended it to be.  Many “main line” denominations have developed doctrines to explain this obvious discrepancy.  However, regardless of the rationale, it’s absurd to think that we can be effective without the power of Holy Spirit confirming the preaching of God’s Word. If Jesus and the early apostles needed their preaching validated, so do we?

New Wineskin

28. July, 2013IAM InternationalNo comments

New Wineskin

The first miracle Jesus performed was turning water into wine at a wedding ( John 2: 1- 11 ).  Just prior to His glorious return for His  Bride, He will again pour out the new wine. But there must needs be a new wineskin to hold it, so the container won’t burst and the wine wasted ( Math. 9: 17, Mark 2: 22 and Luke 5: 37 ). The new wineskin will be what God’s ultimate plan for the Church has always been: A Body subject to the Head in every detail; totally filled, led and controlled by His Spirit, in complete unity and agreement with His mind- not man’s ways ( Is. 55: 8 + 9 ). It won’t be church as usual. He is doing a new thing globally by the Spirit, and we need to know and cooperate with it. We must be seeking and building His Kingdom, not our own, and work together to see its manifestation. When the new wineskin is in place, then the Great Commission will be fulfilled swiftly. Not by our might nor power, but by His Spirit!

Acts 3: 19- 21 speaks of the complete restoration of all things before the Lord’s return. When the Church was first birthed in Holy Ghost power on the Day of Pentecost, Jesus gave gifts to men. The Early Church operated in apostolic power and authority, and there was great multiplication and increase. Observers said that they were full of new wine ( Acts 2: 13 ). Signs, wonders and miracles were the norm, and the Gospel was spread throughout the then-known world. Angels were working alongside the saints, with frequency and regularity. God had a set order, established by the  apostles and other ministry gifts equipping supernaturally the believers to do the greater works ( Eph. 4: 1- 16 ). God chose, appointed and anointed those  who were fore-ordained to lead His move. When there were disputes, the leadership made decisions after consulting with God , not people’s opinions.

Just as Aaron’s rod budded and bore fruit to prove who God’s choice was, in this move only those who are under the spout where the Glory pours out will be beautiful and fruitful ( Numbers Chapter 17 ). God will supernaturally demonstrate His favor upon His selection of leadership. He is a God of order,  not of confusion. We must be aligned in the authority sandwich, if we desire the mighty miracles and breakthroughs that we need. God is the Author of all  authority. The centurion could operate in the greatest faith because he understood this principle ( Math. 8: 5- 13 and Luke 7 : 1- 10 ). Everyone in the Body needs to be under God’s authority and plugged in where He places them, for the whole to work as a unit. Those who criticize God’s anointed and want to  exalt themselves need to be corrected, lest what happened to Miriam comes to pass in their life ( Numbers Chapter 12 , Deut. 24: 8 + 9, Ps. 105: 15 ).  People that resist God’s plan may experience the same fate as the sorcerer in Acts 13. It would be the blind leading the blind. God is not an idiot! He knows  what He’s doing and Father knows best. When someone is promoted in God, we need to rejoice and get behind them- not allow jealousy and a critical spirit to  fight against God.

We must have leadership who hear from heaven and obey promptly in this hour. Fear of man brings a snare. If we want to be on the winning team, we must war in the spirit- not the flesh. We must get behind what God is doing and support His agenda, not our own. IT’s time to align- find our place and do what we’re called to do under His appointed leadership. That’s the way for each of us to walk in our divine destiny as mature sons of God. We will grow into all we’re supposed to be, as all the five-fold ministers working together perfect us. Otherwise there is unbalance. All streams will converge into the mighty river of God. Then all opposition will be swept away by the Spirit ( Is. 59: 19 Amp.)

The new wineskin will look like this. God’s order is shown in I Cor. 12: 28. The Church is being built by Jesus. He is the Chief Cornerstone. Upon Him, the apostles and prophets are laying the foundation ( Eph. 2: 13- 22 ). A restored church will have the five-fold ministry working in unity under the guidance and authority of true apostles and anointed prophets- not ” do-your-own-thing ministry international”. Submission is a good Bible word. Over and over again, God reiterates His principles of submission. If we submit to God, then we can resist the devil and he will flee ( James 4: 7 ). When the Body of Christ gets positioned, we will all walk in the victory God designs. Cities and nations shall fall in a day to the Lordship of Christ. The world has never yet seen the united army Joel prophesied: each one walking in their place- not thrusting each other through ( Joel 2: all and 3: 9- 21 ). The mountains will drop down new wine when the wine-skin is prepared . We’ll experience the double restoration and new wine promised in Zech. 9: 11- 17, when we align with God’s plans. When we are faithful in another man’s ministry, God can promote us ( Luke 16: 10 + 12 ) . But not if we are rebellious and impatient. Not if we are back-biting and
cursing the ones sent to perfect us ( Heb. 13: 7 + 17 ). The religious and the antichrist spirit were continuously challenging Jesus’ authority. The Holy  Spirit is not divided. He is the New Wine which will be poured out into the vessels of God who are subject to Him. A man is not crowned unless he plays
according to the rules. Many will be disqualified if they will not find their place and be faithful ( 2 Tim. 2: 5, 3: 1- 9 ).

As Acts 4: 31- 37 and 5: 12- 14 show, the new wineskin will look like this: a church working in one accord, under God’s leadership;  Apostles and prophets showing God’s direction, with evangelists, pastors and teachers fulfilling their functions to train and equip the saints to do the work of the ministry; Everyone on board with God’s plans and purposes serving the Lord together in unity, humility and a true motive of love. Once we are one, the world will know ( John 17: 20- 23 ). And the world will won when we become true disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. When we are one, the world will be won. The true and mature sons of God will be led by the Holy Spirit, recognizing His voice and walking in the Truth. He will fill them with the new wine continuously ( Eph. 5: 17 + 18 ). They will actualize their potential in God and complete the Father’s work, for the glory of Jesus Christ. God has saved the best for last ( John 2: 11 ). It is the Omega generation that shall obey and complete the task, when we become the new wine- skin of which Jesus spoke. The context in the 3 Gospels was when He spoke of the Bridegroom and His party. The glorious victorious Bride is the New Wine-skin! She’ll be filled to overflow with the Spirit, with extra oil and wine to bind up the wounds of a hurting planet ( Luke 10: 34 )! We will with one mind and one mouth glorify the Lord, knit together by the Spirit of unity, all united and experiencing the commanded blessing of Ps. 133, all the Body soaked and saturated with the anointing. The oil pours down from Jesus Christ, our High Priest, onto the shoulders of His government upon the rest of the body which is under His authority. Of the increase of His peace and Government, there shall be no ceasing ( Is. 9: 6 + 7 ). He must rule until all enemies are placed under His feet!

Pastors !

1. July, 2013IAM InternationalNo comments

Pastors ! Will you prayerfully consider partnering with us to fulfill the Great Commission in our generation? Over 41% of the people groups of the world are as yet unreached. Our global organization goes to the nations to train and equip local leaders, who then take the Good News where it has never gone before. We need you to help us help them! These countries are hungry for supernatural impartation and many others are asking us to come, but the whole Body of Christ needs to be involved in doing the ONE thing Jesus told us to do. If you don’t yet have a connection to what the Lord is doing across the earth, PLEASE hook-up with us with a monthly donation to missions. We can’t do nations without donations! May it not be the Great Omission, but the Great Commission in Jesus’ Name!!!

YOU ARE A NEW CREATION IN CHRIST JESUS

27. June, 2013IAM InternationalNo comments

II Cor 5: 17-21; Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all thingsare become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
