~ God said: “You Are A Dirt Bag?” ( it’s not what you think :)~

YEP! That’s what He said.

First let me explain what “dirt bag” is in this context. As you may know, you are a spirit being, with a mind and soul, and you exist on this earth in a body, your “earth suit” so to speak. Your earth suit is made up of basic elements that are found in dirt. (Remember, God created Adam from the dust of the ground so this should make sense.)

Your skin, the largest organ of your body, is the “bag” that all of this “dirt” is contained in. That being clear, let me share an important revelation that can help you in your walk with God.

Years ago I remember struggling with this one particular sin that I just COULD NOT seem to overcome. I was praying and asking forgiveness for the umpteenth time and being disgusted with myself I said “LORD, I am such a DIRT BAG!” The Lord spoke back to me very strong and said: “Yes Jack, you ARE a dirt bag. As a man thinks in his heart, so he is.”

I was shocked!
All I could think about was that the Lord called me a “dirt bag” and then gave
me scripture to back it up by quoting Proverbs 23:7 ! I was like … Lord!? … for real!?

It was at that moment that it seemed like He downloaded this huge revelation into my “hard drive” about how we see ourselves. What you are mindful of has tremendous impact on our spiritual growth and our ability to walk in the spirit. Today I saw how it impacts our ability to minister to the needs of others. Romans 8 holds the key to understanding this.

Lets break it down.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

(You see, it is not enough to just “be saved” (in Christ Jesus) but you must be “after the Spirit.” Notice the capital S in Spirit? We must be ever conscious of the Holy Spirit and His agenda.)

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.  3For what the law could not do, in that
it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 
 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

There are two laws mentioned here; the law of the Spirit of life in Christ and the law of sin and death. We are FREE from the second law because God CONDEMNED SIN IN THE FLESH.

When the devil is successful in getting you into self-condemnation and thinking of yourself as a “Dirt Bag,” you are in essence saying: “What God did was not enough, I have to condemn sin myself.” This can be as simple as you just focusing on the carnal, fallen nature most of the time instead of being mindful of spiritual things. This renders you helpless and powerless. (Which is the devils goal if he can’t kill you.)

 5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.  6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

We understand that actively pursuing sin brings death, but did you know that condemnation does the same thing? Condemnation IS “minding the things of the flesh.” We can’t be effective at helping others with death working in us.

 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

Having the “Dirt Bag” (carnal) mindset is enmity against God. You cannot please Him. It reminds me of another scripture.

Hebrews 11:6 ~ But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

It takes faith to break free of the “Dirt Bag” mindset.

 9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the
Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.

Do we really get it? That we are NOT in the flesh? Just because we live in a flesh and bone “earth suit” and walk around in a fallen world does not mean we can’t be spiritual. Obviously I did not get that when the Lord spoke this to me.

Condemnation quenches the Spirit and puts the focus inward instead of upward and outward. It renders the Christian powerless, ineffective and no threat to the devil.

We MUST walk in power. That power is for OTHER PEOPLE. It is not for you. It is not for you to execute your own agenda or for you to market it so you can be financially secure. It is not to play with or for you to draw attention to yourself. The devil tries to keep you from walking in this power by substituting it with an
opposite power, the power of condemnation. He tries to get you focused on the
“DIRT BAG” so much that it is all you can see. Instead of being mindful of
spiritual things that can help others, you become only mindful of you, and you
can’t even help yourself.

DON’T BE A DIRT BAG! (CARNAL)  BE  SPIRITUAL!

1Corinthians 2:15 ~  But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is  judged of no man.

~The Battle Within~

One evening an old Apache War Chief told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said,”My son, the battle between two wolves is inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, greed, arrogance, selfishness, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”

The grandson thought about this for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old War Chief simply replied, “The one you feed.”

This is an old story. Maybe you have heard it before, but the truth is real. Consider what things you are feeding and what things you are starving in your life. Keep in mind that the words you speak have spiritual power that feeds and gives life to certain areas of your life. Jesus said that God’s Word is Spirit and Life.

John 6:63 ~ It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

The Word of God is full of commands to speak the Word of God, to keep it before you and in your mouth. Bible confessions are a valuable tool in winning the battle within. Build your faith and strengthen your heart by feeding that “Good Wolf” the Word of God on a daily basis by reading and speaking God’s Word.

Deuteronomy 30:18-20 ~ 14 But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it. 15 “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, 16 in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the LORD your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess.

Proverbs 18:21 ~ Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Joshua 1:8 ~ This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

~ Releasing God’s Grace With Your Words~

In the early 90’s I was just beginning to really get stirred up about confession of God’s Word, mainly because I was beginning to understand the principles behind it, and not just mindlessly reciting something that I had no understanding of.

I had an 8 page list of confessions from God’s Word that I would read out loud and declare over my life almost daily. One morning as I was making these declarations the Lord spoke to me and asked, “What are you doing?” I was quiet for a few seconds and then answered, “well, ummmm… I am confessing your Word Lord.” He replied, “You are applying Truth Pressure.” That was the end of that conversation.

That was a new term for me, a new concept. I knew that particular phrase was not in the bible, but to validate what the Lord had just spoken to me I knew I must find the principle in His Word. Any Word that you hear by the Spirit must line up with the written Word or it is not valid.

I knew that God’s Word had power and I knew there was great power in the spoken word, but it wasn’t until I began to understand the grace of God that I saw what Truth Pressure meant and understood why confession works. So lets take a few moments to make sure we understand grace and how it is connected to what we say.  In the book of Ephesians, we see a wonderful truth concerning our speech.

 Ephesians 4:29 ~ Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.

This verse is talking about words, that minister grace to the hearer. Since we are always the first one to hear our words, I recommend we take a long look at what is coming from our lips. Is it corrupt or is it grace? Is it faith, or is it fear? Is it blessing or is it cursing? Does it edify or tear down? What kind of influence are we having with our words?

 What exactly is grace? The best definition that I have found is, “The divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life.” Grace is Gods way of working on you from the inside out. The word of God that is spoken ministers to us on the inside in such a powerful way that it begins to show up in our life.

Everything that God has prepared and provided for you, can be found in His Word. His words are words of truth and grace, filled with divine influence that will change and affect you in such a way that it begins to show up and be reflected in your life. We need to be speaking His words, if we are going to experience the fullness of His grace and be ministers of His grace to the world.

I want you to look at verses 29 again and we will add verse 30 and 31.

 Ephesians 4:29-31 ~ 29Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. 30And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

In other words, if you are not speaking words that edify, (God’s WORD) and ministering grace to those who hear them, including yourself, you are grieving the Holy Spirit. I know,………….OUCH!

The most frequent sins are sins of the mouth. How we control our mouth and how we bridle our tongue is a direct reflection on how mature we are spiritually. The truth is, if you sin with your mouth daily, you are but a child, regardless of how long you have been a Christian or how much knowledge of God’s word you have. It is not the word that you know that brings maturity, but the word that you DO.

James 3:2-4 ~ 2For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. 3Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. 4Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.

The word “perfect” in verse two simply means mature, or of full age. maturity is measured, in great part, by your mouth and how you control it.

The bible is very clear that our words have tremendous power, and when it is God’s Word we are speaking, they have the power to minister His grace.

Confession of God’s Word applies “Truth Pressure” to your heart. God’s Word is filled with divine influence (grace) that feeds and strengthens your spirit man until it that truth shows up in your soul and body and is reflected in your life for all to see. Change will always come first in the heart before you see it manifest in the natural.

Proverbs 18:21 ~ Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

 

 

~ Love, The 4 Part Harmony ~

I was rocking back and forth in my chair with my eyes closed as I was listening to the last song on my favorite worship tape. I had been singing to the Lord and praising Him  for almost an hour and His presence filled the room. The tape ended and I was  smiling from the inside out as I enjoyed the sweet silence and communion with  my master. Tears of joy were running down my cheeks and my heart was so full of emotion that I wasn’t quite sure how to express it.

With eyes still closed and the tears now flowing I said “Lord I love you so much”. He then spoke to my heart very distinctly, “How much do you love me, Jack”?  “I love you with all my heart, Lord”. He said “Jack that is not enough”.

My eyes popped open and I realized that God was trying to show me something. When God asks a question, He is obviously not looking for information. He then brought to my remembrance the passage in Mark 12:30 “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.”

I saw instantly that loving God with all my heart was only one-fourth of the love commandment. One fourth…25%! I thought to myself, “Man that is weak”. I began to consider what it might mean to love the Lord with my mind and my soul, and how to love Him with strength and realized that I really wasn’t sure. I asked the Lord to teach me how to love Him with these other parts of my being and He began to open my eyes and show me what true love really is.

After the Lord’s correction on how I loved Him, I began to pray and ask questions. “How do I love you with my mind and soul Lord”? I realized that the first thing to do was to define love as the bible teaches it so I took some time and really solidified what love is in my understanding. Immediately I began to see that my ignorance and the church’s ignorance on this topic was glaringly obvious.

Without going in to exhaustive word studies, hermeneutics and exegesis I will just rely on the printed text. You see it is very simple. God is love.

1 John 4:8 ~  He that loveth not, knoweth not God; for God is love.

Love is a 4 part harmony, and when all four parts are expressed in fullness I begin to understand more of who God really is…..and more of who I am.

We see in Romans that He has put inside us everything we need to properly respond to Him with love. He has put His own nature, His character, the essence of His being inside us, giving us every opportunity and every necessary tool to connect with Him in intimate relationship.

Romans 5:5 ~  And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

This love He has placed inside us has many qualities and characteristics, which is expressed in 1 Corinthians 13, the famous “love chapter”. But you will notice that the chief characteristic of love is giving.

John 3:16 ~ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Love is not merely a feeling or an emotion, although it will produce both. Love is a commitment of devotion that is directed by our will. Love is an action word. Not just a noun but also a verb. Love does, love doesn’t just say. Love invests. Love thinks of giving first before any thought of receiving.

So now we must realize that to love God with the mind, soul, and strength, we have to figure out how to give those parts of ourselves to Him. This is a long teaching so I will just leave you with a few thoughts to get the gears turning in your mind. You will be able to figure out the rest.

I find it interesting the soul and mind are separated in the text. I was always taught that the soul was the seat of the mind, will, and emotions, yet here they are separate. Here are the words as defined in the original text:

1) the heart ~ (kardia)

Denotes the centre and seat of spiritual life, the middle or central or inmost part of anything, even though inanimate.

2) the soul ~ (psychē)

The seat of the feelings, desires, affections, aversions. The (human) soul in so far as it is constituted that by the right use of the aides offered it by God it can attain its highest end, the soul regarded as a moral being designed for everlasting life. The soul as an essence which differs from the body and is not dissolved by death.

 3) Mind ~ (dianoia)

The mind as a faculty of understanding, feeling, desiring, understanding, way of thinking and feeling. Thoughts, either good or bad.

4) Strength ~ (ischys)

 Abilities, talents, gifting, force, strength, might.

Since the greatest expression of love is to give, ask yourself this:

Am I giving all of those aspects of my life to God? Am I withholding parts of my life from Him? God has invested in you by putting His love in your heart (Romans 5:5), He expects a great return on His investment.

~ The Man Who Talks To Trees ~

Mark 11:12-14 ~ 12And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: 13And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. 14And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

 In today’s society people who talk to trees run the risk of being put in a straight jacket and labeled a lunatic. In fact, there were many that thought Jesus was a lunatic so this shouldn’t surprise anyone.

The Bible records Jesus speaking to many things throughout the New Testament. In every case, the things He spoke to obeyed Him. What most people don’t realize is that He did this as a man, not as God. Jesus walked this earth and ministered as a man anointed and filled with the Holy Spirit.

Jesus was born of the incorruptible seed of God. That seed was placed in His virgin mother and He was born a man, completely void of any heavenly powers or privileges.

Philippians 2:6-8 ~ 6Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross! ~NIV~

 What we must grasp is that the same incorruptible seed that was in Christ is now in us if Jesus is our Lord. This understanding is essential if we are to function in the authority and power that Jesus did when He was on the earth. When Jesus spoke to things and exercised His Kingdom authority He was not doing it to show off, He was setting an example for His Church to follow. He was demonstrating what could be done as a man so that we would know who we were in Him.

Knowing who you are IN Christ is one of the most important revelations in your Christian walk.

Lets look at another instance of Jesus exercising His authority.

Mark 4:38-40 ~ 38And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? 39And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

Now this one really freaked the disciples out! They were fighting for their life while Jesus slept. I wonder how long this went on. I can see the disciples bailing water, tieing down everything that was loose, fighting with the rudder and the rope rigging. All the while, stealing glances at Jesus every few minutes thinking “when is He gonna get up and DO something?” Keep in mind that some of these guys were professional sailors and fishermen, they had been in bad storms before, so this must have been a real doosey!

As bad as it must have been, the truth is, they didn’t need to wake Jesus up. They should have been able to take care of it themselves. In fact Jesus rebuked them for being afraid and having no faith.

Mark 4:40 ~ And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

 If Jesus expected them to exercise that kind of faith and authority BEFORE he went to the cross, how much more does He expect it from us as born again believers? The real question is; why don’t WE expect to operate like that? Although the disciples had the power to do just what Jesus did, they were waiting on Jesus to do something.

Many prayers seemingly go unanswered because God has already done everything that He is going to do about the situation. He has given you the authority and power to do something about it yourself so stop waiting on Jesus to wake up and calm your storm, begin speaking to it!

What else did Jesus talk to? We have the account of Peter’s mother in law being healed of a fever. Notice what Jesus does.

Luke 4:38-40 ~ 38And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon’s house. And Simon’s wife’s mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her. 39And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them. 40Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.

Notice that Jesus did not pray for Peter’s mother in law, He spoke directly to the fever and rebuked it! He exercised His kingdom authority over the fever and the fever had no choice but to obey. Many times Christians are praying when they should have been SAYING.

 You Have The Same Kingdom Authority to speak to things and get results!

When you get sick do you first run to the medicine cabinet, or the doctor, or do you use words of faith to take authority over the sickness? Don’t get me wrong, I am not knocking medicine. In fact, you will find it easier to stand in faith if you are not fighting as many symptoms. If medicine can calm the symptoms and make it easier to stand in faith, I say go for it! But let the sickness know who is boss and don’t let medicine and doctors be you first recourse.

Here is an interesting account of Jesus speaking to a dead person.

 John 11:42-44 ~ 42And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. 43And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. 44And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave-clothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

This is an amazing account of Jesus demonstrating His kingdom authority and the power of the spoken word. There have been many confirmed, recorded accounts of people being raised from the dead in Jesus name. 14 accounts in the life of  Smith Wigglesworth alone. This is available to YOU … TODAY!

So we see that He spoke to trees, to the elements, to sickness, and even to dead people. So ask your self this;

“Can a tree, a fever, a storm, or even a dead person hear?” Obviously THEY CAN!

These were just some of the mountains that Jesus had to move in His earthly ministry. What mountains are you facing in your life? If you don’t have faith enough to move your mouth, you will never have faith enough to move your mountain.

Your Mountain Should Be Hearing Your Voice!

Mark 11:23 ~ For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

Summary:

Jesus was a man born of incorruptible seed and filled with the Spirit. Because of that He shook the world and performed amazing miracles. Signs and wonders were a way of life for Him after the Holy Spirit came upon Him. If you are Christ’s, then you are born of the same incorruptible seed.

1 Peter 1:23 ~ Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

The signs and wonders that followed Jesus should be following us if we truly believe.

Mark 1617And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

The truth is we should be seeing greater works than Jesus did. That is what He told us in His Word.

John 14:12 ~ Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

The Bible is called the “Cannon” of scripture. Cannon means ruler, or measuring stick. We must judge our own lives and experience by the measuring stick of God’s written Word. If our experience does not measure up to what we see in scripture then we need to make adjustments and pray for God to help us elevate our experience to match His Word, not water down God’s Word to match our lack of experience.

~I Am God’s Word~

~I Am God’s Word~.

~ Words, The Steering Wheel Of Your Life ~

Part of the mission God has given to me is to teach and encourage people to speak God’s Word and create an awareness of the power of our words. This is a huge part of living by faith.

Saying what God says about you and putting yourself in agreement with Him by confessing what He says in His Word will set you on a course to fulfill your divine destiny on this earth and reach your potential in Christ.

I am fully convinced by the Word of God that we can change our lives by what we say. The Word of God is full of instruction and examples of the use of words and their importance in our lives. The book of Proverbs is an instruction in wisdom and it is filled with passages about the power and effect of our words. We will refer to some of them later, but first take a look at what James says about the power of the tongue and its ability to direct the course of our lives.

James 3:3-5 ~ Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body. 4Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. 5Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles!

We have some great comparisons here that show us the power of our words. The small bit in the horse’s mouth can turn and direct that powerful animal and change its course. And just like a tiny rudder on a huge ship can point it in any
direction, what we say with our mouth is like the steering wheel of our life, it directs and determines our direction and course.

It has been my observation that most Christians DO NOT believe this principle. If they did, they would be more selective in what they are saying.

Lets look at some more scripture that describe the awesome power of the tongue.

Proverbs 18:20 ~ A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit
of his mouth;
from the produce of his lips he shall be filled.

Proverbs 18:21 ~ Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and
those who love it will eat its fruit.

Is it really true that life and death are in the power of the tongue, the power to speak life or death to your situation? Your body, your job, your career, your family, your finances, your ministry, your mind, they are ALL affected by what is coming out of your mouth.

If you look at today’s most popular motivational speakers, you will see that they have some understanding of these principles and have had great success applying them to their lives and the lives of their followers. Most of them don’t even know that there are eternal spiritual laws at work, and yet they know that they can change their world with the things that they say. And that is exactly the point.

You don’t have to know why things happen as long as you know that they DO happen. There is more than enough scripture that plainly spells out the power that you have in your words without you having to do an exegetical theological study on the topic.

God has made it very plain and simple. This is a topic that should be above argument and easy for all to see because of the sheer volume of scripture on the subject. Yet when you mention confession of God’s Word people come out of the woodwork to take a position against it.

This makes perfect sense to me because I know that the enemy HATES it when you speak God’s Word. Jesus spoke it when He defeated Satan in the wilderness and you can speak it to defeat Satan in your own life.

When the devil comes to steal kill and destroy, you can use God’s word to build up, give life, and prosper.

Here are a few more scriptures to help drive the importance of your words:

Job 22:28 ~ You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.

Proverbs 10:11 ~ The mouth of the righteous is a well of life, But
violence covers the mouth of the wicked.

Proverbs 15:4 ~ A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, But
perverseness in it breaks the spirit.

Mark 11:23 ~ For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this
mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

Isaiah 57:19 ~ I create the fruit of the lips: Peace, peace to him who is far off and to him who is near,” Says the LORD, “And I will heal him.”

Psalm 103:20 ~ Bless the LORD, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word.

Joshua 1:8 ~ This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

These are just a few passages that tell us the power that is available to us. This is a huge responsibility. These verses would not be in the bible unless God wanted us to be aware of this power and use it for good.

Take heed to what is coming out of your mouth. If it does not build up and bless, strengthen and encourage, produce faith and create a vision for success … DON’T SAY IT!  Remember, when you speak … it should be an improvement on silence.
