Title: How to Follow the spirit of God

Notes:

No one can become productive in life if they don't follow the instructions from God.

in·struc·tion

inˈstrəkSH(ə)n/

noun

1. a direction or order.

"he issued instructions to the sheriff"

synonyms: order, command, directive, direction, decree, edict, injunction, mandate, dictate, commandment, bidding;

2. detailed information telling how something should be done, operated, or assembled.

"always study the instructions supplied"

synonyms: directions, key, rubric, specification, how-tos; handbook, manual, guide, tutorial

read the instructions

We all need instruction. Instruction means given direction or order; it is detailed information on how something should be done; teaching. Even electronic appliances come with instructions with a clear label from the manufacturer instructing that the manual should be read before operating the appliance. Why? The manufacturer wants the equipment used correctly to save money for both the purchaser and the manufacturer and to increase the lifetime of the product. Our lives are like appliances. And the bible is our manual for survival, for making the product (ourselves) last into eternity.

In 1 Samuel 3:7 the scriptures are letting us know that Samuel has not come to knowledge of things of the Spirit yet. There's an aspect of God that Samuel did not know at that point. He has been in the temples but didn't know God. He needed someone to give him instruction. Instruction is important if we are to understand what is happening around us (1 Samuel 3:8). 1 Samuel 3:9 is where the instruction from his pastor, Eli, comes in. Eli gave Samuel instructions on how to hear from the Lord.

Instruction unveils the very best of God to us. Whenever you lay down your heart and determine that you are going to follow God, you open yourself to understanding.

2 Kings 5:1-5, 8-14 tells us about a leper whom God was able to bring healing to because the leper followed instruction. It was a maid who gave him instruction (2 Kings 5:3) because she had faith and knowledge. Sometimes God will use a child to give you instruction that will improve your life. But you have to be open to instruction and willing to learn.

This leper was a wealthy man and he thought he could buy his healing (2 Kings 5:5). But in the end, it was because he followed instructions that he was able to receive healing. His second set of instructions was to wash in the Jordan (2 Kings 5:10). How many of us really like to follow instructions? Do you toss away the instruction manual and go straight to operating your new equipment? The leper didn't want to follow instructions either. We have problems following instructions because we have our own idea of how things should be done. We get upset when the instructions are counter to the way we believe things should be done. We must learn to follow instructions. The leper had his own ideas on how things should go; he had his own agenda. But if you are going to follow God, you must let go of your own ideas. Even if the instructions of God seem silly. We have to remember He has His own way of doing things and knows what is best for us.

The leper didn't think Elisha's instructions made any sense (2 Kings 5:12). The Jordan was not a clean river. Look at your life. Has there been some area God has been giving you direction that you refuse to listen to? Are you refusing to listen because the directions don't seem to make sense to you?

The instructions for the leper weren't over yet. He received yet another instruction in 2 Kings 5:13. God knew his life was tied to instructions. We need to learn to give in to instruction. We need to listen to instruction to become something in life. Any time you follow instruction your life will be better (2 Kings 5:14). Your life will be secured when you can learn to take instruction. God will begin to minister to you when you decide you will follow instruction in the Word of God. There was no healing power in the water for the leper. The healing power was in following the instruction given to him.

Even Jesus found it important to talk about this leper (Luke 4:27) because he followed instruction. Many lepers were not clean because they didn't follow instruction. Jesus was stressing the importance of following instructions.

Let's go back to 1 Samuel 3:9-11. Samuel followed instruction and went and laid down in his place. Because he followed instruction given to him by his pastor, he was able to hear the voice of God. Your spiritual growth is tied to being able to follow instruction (1 Samuel 3:19). Nobody grows outside of following instructions. Even the president of the United States has someone to instruct him. And he must follow those instructions if he wants to be a better leader.

Our spiritual growth is tied to hearing the voice of God and following the instructions He gives us. Nobody becomes productive in life outside of instructions. You don't become a doctor by waking up in the morning and stating I am going to be a doctor today! It takes instruction, and it takes time. You can't pass your driver's test if you refuse to read the manual. You might think you know all of the answers, but very few of us are born prodigies. Instruction is very important for growth.

Learn how to follow instruction.

Samuel wasn't born a prophet (1 Samuel 3:20); only Jeremiah was born a prophet. Samuel was established as a prophet. Established meaning that it didn't just happen. He was trained. He became a prophet by following the instructions of the leaders he was under.

It was Samuel's choice to serve (1 Samuel 2:18), but, again, he wasn't born a prophet. It was his willingness to learn, to follow instructions, that led him to becoming a prophet. He trained himself by following instructions of his pastor, Eli (1 Samuel 2:11). Anyone that follows instruction has an attitude of servitude. Samuel wanted to serve (1 Samuel 3:1). Those that seek to serve are assets to the church.

Another example of a person who understood what it meant to serve and take instruction was the centurion in Matthew 8:5-9. Centurions were powerful men in the Roman empire. But this centurion was concerned about his servant's welfare. He understood what it meant to serve. Verse 9 gives us a history of this centurion. The secret of this man was that he was under authority and he took instruction from those over him.

You cannot enjoy the supernatural until you learn to follow instruction. Instruction prepares you for what God has for you. Nobody who follows the law ends up in prison.

Instruction is very important. Without it you can't grow.

You do want to grow don't you?

Suggestion for the week: reread Acts of Apostles. Paul is an amazing prophet and we can all learn from his instruction. Reread Acts and see what God wants to reveal to you.

Title: Knowing the Love of Christ

Notes:

Knowing the Love of Christ

The first thing you need to understand about the love of Christ is that your knowing affects your doing. In today's discussion we are aiming to discuss three things, First, we'd like to discuss knowing the love of God. Secondly, determine what is the love of God. And lastly, we aim to cover working in the love of God.

Recommended reading: 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus

God gave Paul a revelation that most of the people of the time failed to understand (Ephesians 3:19). And to know the love of Christ with perfect knowledge. Know in this case means to be sure, to have great understanding; it is the difference between knowledge and feelings; not just to feel but to know by being aware; to have an accurate understanding. Your understanding should go beyond knowledge. The greek work is ginóskó.

According to Strong's Concordance

ginóskó: to come to know, recognize, perceive

Original Word: γινώσκω

Part of Speech: Verb

Transliteration: ginóskó

Phonetic Spelling: (ghin-oce'-ko)

Short Definition: I come to know, learn, realize

Definition: I am taking in knowledge, come to know, learn; aor: I ascertained, realized.

The knowing of your name, your home address, your age, this is the kind of knowledge that Paul is talking about. The kind of knowledge that comes through your feeling, through your senses, but goes beyond that. This knowledge should surpass your feelings.

Your knowledge about the love of God will release the fullness of God in your life.

This love is revealed through His death. It's not defined by how much you have in the bank, the kind of car you drive, the clothes you wear, or by the roof over your head.

Romans 5:6 says when we were yet without strength - talking about being sick or helpless, when you have nothing, when there is no good thing about you. The love of Christ is revealed in His death. Christ didn't die because of your good grammar, your educational level, or the amount you have in the bank. Christ died for you because he loves you.

If you are not a good person few will die for you (Romans 5:7). Almost nobody will want to die for you if you are a bad person. The love of God is revealed in that Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). Don't judge Christ's love based on your possessions, but by what He did for you.

God did not wait for us to ask for forgiveness. He loves you so much He decided to die for you before you were able to ask for forgiveness (Romans 5:10). The biggest thing we should have to fear is a separation from God.

If you believe that if I don't have a good car then I am not loved by God then you are being deceived; the devil is whispering in your ear. Jesus coming and dying for us was to reconcile us to the love of God. People can have good cars without having a belief in God or even being a good person. You can't judge your life or the love of God for you based on what worldly people have.

You are loved just the way you are. You don't need to do anything to be loved by Christ. Have faith in the love God has for us. The love of Christ is revealed when you were yet a sinner.

Another misguided thought is I want to do this to impress God, so that He will love me. You can't impress God, nobody can. But you don't need to - He already loves you. The fullness of God does not come until you have adequate knowledge of His love. God is a good God. The negative things in your life are not because of God. Most often the bad things in our life is because of our free will and making bad decisions. Sometimes they are the devil trying to pry us away from God. But never from God.

Let's talk a little about Job 42:1-6. We approach God based on what our parents, teachers, or ministers have taught us. We have forgotten to look at the Word. Some of us approach God based on circumstances. God cannot manipulate you or get you to do things you don't want to do. The level of God's love towards you has never changed or waned. He doesn't love you more because you pray a lot or love you less because you don't tithe enough (we should do these things because we love Him). God loves us even while we are sinners. Don't base God's love on what you do.

You cannot believe anything about God if you don't know his love. Our generation is telling people to believe without helping them to adequately understand God's love.

1 John 4:16 says known and believed the love that God has for us. Knowing exceeds believing. One reason you need to know the love of Christ is that things will not go the way you plan them too. If you don't know the love of Christ these things will affect the way you worship. Troubles should not take you away from your faith.

You can't be a conqueror (Romans 8:37) until you understand the love of God. You can't conquer sickness or trouble if you don't have adequate knowledge. There's something about God's love that nothing can shake you out of it (Romans 8:38). Bills, troubles, sickness, even death, should not shake your knowledge in the love of God. God loves you and is your protector. No matter how disobedient your child is, you can't sell them to your enemy. You love your child no matter what. God doesn't do any less. Even angels can't persuade God to stop loving you. Nothing can separate you from the love of God (Romans 8:39).

The love of Christ affects your future before you arrive there.

Wake up every morning and thank God for loving you! You need to walk in the love of Christ. Focus your attention in knowing. Your knowing affects your doing. If you understand God's love then you should be living to please Him.

Let's turn to Luke 15 and break it down. Just as a background, Israel never had anything to do with pigs because they were considered unclean.

Luke 15:12-20 - If you don't understand God's love you will have the wrong mentality and think that when we sin God no longer loves us. That he will no longer treat us as his children. No matter what you have done you are still in the Father's heart. Be careful the way you treat non-believers because God still loves them. He gives the non-believers the same level of love He gives to you.

Luke 15:21-27 - The forgiveness already began for the young man when he decided to come back to his father. God's forgiveness begins when you decide to accept His love. Don't ever think that because of what you have done that God is going to place you in second class seating in heaven. There is no economy class or second class seating in God's kingdom. He loves us all the same. Forgiveness comes from the blood of Jesus Christ. The day you decide to accept the love of Christ is the day forgiveness begins. The son in the parable was dead. Not physically. Rather there was a separation between the young man and his father. Once again, being separated from the Father is equivalent to being dead.

Luke 15:28 - Some people in church praise for years, but when a newcomer comes along and the pastor focuses the attention on them the long term believers get angry because they don't understand. Why should the newcomer get that which belongs to them? Their understanding is limited.

Luke 15:29-32 - The accuser of the brethren is not the enemy. There is a problem when you can not forgive the brethren. If you don't understand the love of God then you will not easily forgive your brethren. Love the newcomer as much as the people who have been in your church for years. God does.

God loves you so much that He sent his only begotten Son to die so that you will have eternal life (John 3:16). Be firm in your knowledge that God loves you. Don't be swayed or dissuaded by your circumstances. God does love you!

Title: Walking in God's Love

Notes:

Last time (see notes from 3/12/2017) we discussed the difference between feeling and knowing God's love. It's hard, if not next to impossible, to feel God's love all of the time due to the way our lives work, but at all times we should know God loves us.

Today we are going to talk about walking in God's love.

We need absolute knowledge about the love of Christ in order to partake in the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:19). We must come to a place in our life where we know the love of Christ. Last week we talked about the greek word ginóskó - the kind of knowledge that comes from feeling but goes beyond just feeling (like knowing your own name, age, or phone number). You must know that God is there by your side. Things may not always go the way you feel like they should and the only thing that will keep you going is the knowledge of God's love.

The fruit (singular) of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering (the ability to handle all things coming against you; the ability to endure), gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance (Galatians 5:22). If you have the knowledge of the love of God in the midst of trouble it will not wear you down (Galatians 5:23). The knowledge will keep you connected to God. The love of God is revealed in His death. We must learn how to receive His love. You must receive it without complaining.

Let's take a minute to break down Luke 15:15-25. In parable there is revelation. This is why Jesus passed out messages to his people through parable. Remember, we have talked about it before, it is not a sinners prayer that gets you forgiveness. Forgiveness begins when you decide to accept God. This is because of His love for you. The young man in this parable squandered everything his father gave him and had so little that he felt forced to eat the same food as the swine.

The young man's forgiveness begins in verse 17. He forgot to know that his forgiveness would start the first time that he decided to go home (read as when you go back to Christ). Don't think you aren't worthy of God's love just because you messed up. God always loves you.

Verse 20 - history tells us that the father waited at the gates every morning for his son to return. Everyday he wakes up and goes and waits at the gates. Your father in heaven is waiting for you. The father in the parable had compassion. He didn't wait for his son to come to him - instead when he saw his son he ran to him. God didn't wait for you to be righteous before dying for you because He loves you and has compassion for you.

In Verse 22 the word "but" is saying that the father wasn't listening to the son before making a decision. He already accepted his love without arguing. The father already provided everything the young man needed. We must accept God's love without arguing. You cannot be victorious until you know that God loves you; you cannot overcome sin or hardship until you make up your mind to accept God's love without arguing, The young man's father wasn't saying to lock the son up or tell him to be gone; instead he was telling the servants to bring the young man the best of everything - not refurbished or worn goods, but the best.There is no second class citizen in heaven, only first class as all of God's children are treated with the best. God forgives you when you accept his love and decide to come home to him. Work with the knowledge that God has forgiven you. You are not a servant - you are a son (or daughter). You need to accept what God has given you with joy (verse 23). Be merry about the freedom God has given you. Your present circumstance does not affect what God has already done. You need to stop complaining and accept God's love. Enjoy God in the salvation He has given to us.

Don't argue with God. Accept His love. Walk in His love. Do not argue and do not confess negative thoughts that the enemy brings you. Do not walk after the flesh (the sins you have done, the things you have done wrong) (Romans 8:1)

Now let's talk about Joshua 2:1-12. Rahab was a harlot. The bible doesn't hide anything from us. God sent a spy to stay in her house. God wanted to show us how he cares for us.

Look at the confession in Verse 9. It will help you with God's love. Did Rahad have a feeling? No! She had adequate knowledge of what God was doing. If you have adequate knowledge of God you can stand against any hardship. There's another confession here that you need to listen to. It is in Verse 11. It is a confession that God has absolute control over what is going to happen. Your God is the God of heaven. Based on her testimony, God has taken care of her past.

Learn how to tell the enemy that "I am not what I used to be!" Rahab became the great grandmother of Jesus (Verse 12 and Matthew 1:5). This means that Jesus accepts her for who she is. There is nothing that can separate you from God if you accept His love and walk in His love.

Lastly we'd like to discuss 2 Samuel 9:1-10. When David became king he wanted to show the kindness of God to someone who was worthy. Was there anyone? Yes! There was a lame man. Keep in mind that in those days, the crippled and lame were looked down on. But David didn't care that he was lame. David wanted to know where this man was. God is is looking out for us before we ever come to the law.

God's love will fetch us out of a place of dryness, a place lacking in productivity (verse 5). The first thing God wants to take away from you is fear (verse 7). He accepts you unconditionally. God will bring you restoration after he brings you out of the place of dryness. God is not in the business of tearing you down, but restoring you. David is showing us the life of Christ; that we will eat at Christ's table continually, without ceasing. "Eat bread at my table continually&qout; has spiritual significance.

Even when God shows us grace, we don't see it (verse 8). If you are going to walk in God's love then you have to understand how He sees you (verse 9). David overlooked the lame man's identity. So it is with us - God overlooks our identity and accepts us for who we are.

You must walk in God's love. By walking in His love you will seek to do those things which make Him happy. Such as following the Word. Be in the Word daily. Know that God love's you. Walk in this love. Be productive.

Title: It is Finished!

Notes:

It is Finished

We are God's children!

These are three (3) words Christ said when he was on the cross - "it is finished" (see John 19:30). These are probably the most powerful words of His ministry. We all know the story about how Jesus went around doing good, healing people, and casting out demons. We know the story about how Judas betrayed Jesus. And we all know the story about how Jesus suffered for us so that we can have a chance to be reconciled with the Father. We also know the story about the two thieves who were crucified with Him. Many of us know that when He was on the cross He spoke three words before he died. Some of us want to think that this meant that his ministry on earth was finished. But these three words are much more powerful than that.

Sometime we find ourselves questioning if God still loves us. Do you know how much God loves you? (if not you should look back at the lesson from March 12, 2017 titled "Knowing the Love of Christ")

When Jesus died on the cross his earthly ministry was done but it carried on with the disciples! Saying His ministry was far from finished. Whatever challenges you have in life, you must know that they are finished!

Whatever challenges in life you have, they are finished in Christ. When you are going through challenges in life, think on these things: the things that are just in life, those things that are good and pure (Philippians 4:8), and those things you have heard and received (Philippians 4:9). The devil will try to bring bad and corrupt things to your mind. The devil will try to tell you that you cannot make it, that you are doomed. But you need to remind the devil that "it is finished!" Many people go through struggles in their life because they don't know these three words.

Be careful for nothing - give it all to God in prayer and meditation (Philippians 4:6). Thank God and He will give you peace because it is finished. He will keep your mind (Philippians 4:7). Do you ever go through struggles in your life and wonder if you are going to make it? I can say that I have. Give it to the Lord your God and he will see you through it. Remind yourself that Jesus took care of it all while He was on the cross. For your troubles and addictions - remind yourself that it is finished!

Cast all of your cares on Christ (1 Peter 5:6-7). There is no reason to worry. Sometimes we allow the devil to torment our lives and we feel there is no way to make it through. In these times we need to remind ourselves that we are free indeed (John 8:36) because it is finished. Don't doubt yourself. Rejoice in the Lord (Philippians 4:4). We don't have to handle our issues, our problems, or our troubles by ourselves because we are free indeed because it is finished!

Jesus defeated the devil (Matthew 4:3-11). He said that man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4). Jesus was using the Word against the devil. We must do the same. Defeat the tempter with the Word of God. Say "devil it is finished! Stop tempting me devil because it is finished!"

These weren't just words used to say that Christ's earthly ministry was over. They mean so much more.

The devil will try to tempt you. The devil will try to trip you up. Don't argue with the devil; resist him; tell the father of lies that it is finished! Use these words on him and he will flee.

The devil isn't going to let us have beautiful days unless we tell him it is finished! Be built up on the Word because it is going to set you free. Talk to your mountain; tell your troubles, addictions, and cares "it is finished!"
