RECOVERING WHAT WAS LOST IN THE GARDEN

 

The Invitation.
You're invited to get My book in parts before it is published “Life With an Open Door to the Father, recovering what was lost in the Garden and rediscovering Life with an open door to our creator and God

We were created in the image of God( Gen 1:27). There is within us an urgent desire, a thirst only quenched when our relationship with God is restored and nurtured in an uninterrupted and free-flowing interaction with one another. When this occurs we begin to discover the delight, which a harmonious ever flowing interaction between God brings about. Much like the vibrations of a tuning fork we are tuned in with God. This brings about a symphony from within us and through us to the world around us which is individually unique and delightful as we become a (body soul and spirit) multidimensional tapestry designed by God to be fulfilled in with harmony Him.
To move from our created desire for God to a life of delighting in Him and the manifestation of what He created us to be and do will require re-establishment of the relationship He designed for us to have.The mission of Jesus the Messiah is the re-establishment of our relationship with God the father.
With the door open we (God & us) may come and go. The development of this or (Working out our salvation) growing in God like any relationship requires that we (Heb 11:5-6) diligently seek Him and reap the reward as this proclaims to us.
What does this diligently seeking Him look like you might ask? It requires that we rediscover who God is and what are His ways. This includes discovering the names of God, what they reveal about His nature and how He interacts with people from the pages of the Bible in conjunction with these revealed qualities.
It requires discovering who we are for we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Then we can grow in our understanding of how the pieces or elements of who we are working together to become the unique tapestry God has designed us to be.
This tapestry is not merely a collection of who we are but becomes complete as we allow our creator to bring true life to those elements. A very unique and life-giving aspect of our relationship with God is learning who we are in Him and putting aside our old nature with its understanding and behavior which bring death and putting on or living according to our new nature in God as empowered by His grace and the working of His Spirit in us through the active life-giving truth of His Word (the Bible).
Our life’s elements, DNA, culture, family environment, education, life experiences along with our natural gifts, talents and skills mix with the supernatural gifts and ways God works in us to bring about the completed design He has stored up for us.
We enter into our new life as we are born again by the spirit through Jesus the Messiah but the transformational process of becoming the unique individual God designed us to be the Bible the original Greek calls being saved. The word sodzo in the NT Greek means, to mend or make whole is a present continuous word, which means that our salvation starts with the new birth and continues on as long as we are in this earthly realm. Along with the ongoing nature of our “being saved” is Phil 2:12 ‘Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear.’ which seems counter-intuitive to salvation by grace alone but it speaks to the transformational process in our lives which is ongoing in this life. We must choose daily and sometimes moment by moment to live according to the new nature and to deny and put to death the old nature. We do so not just in a loving relationship with our Heavenly Father but with the proper upstanding of the price, sin has on us, the world we live in, our relationship with God and the terrible price Jesus paid for our sins.
Our choosing daily to be in Him,’ to live and breathe and have our being in Him’ (Acts (17:28) requires disciplines that help us grow in grace as we reject the old nature and its ways and participate in the new life. These spiritual disciplines help us reject the world, the flesh and the devil and help us nurture and grow into the way of life of a person who is made right with God and who is walking with Him according to His original design for us.
The interweaving all the unique threads mentioned above move us from an incomplete and misshapen version of God’s design for us to the blossoming of a beautiful unique individual whom God chooses to use as He unfolds His kingdom’s beauty and majesty into the lives we interact with along the way in our life's journey.
Are you enjoying the manifestation of your God designed tapestry today?

DISCOVERING ABBA'S WAY
 
Abba awaits our recovery of the life He designed us to share with Him!
Come along as we rediscover these ancient truths and the everlasting door to and from which God and you were meant to have constant access
Life with an Open Door to the Father is a life of fulfillment as designed by Him for us through His unmerited favor and grace in Jesus the Messiah.
This is not a once in a lifetime encounter but a life long journey of walking out our salvation through passionate desire and discipline, which produce the delight of His unlimited incomparable delight.
The idea above is a part of my upcoming book. copyright 2019

 

 

THE ENOCH LIFE

 

What a fantastic thing this is, to be in such a close and pleasing relationship with God that you just walk into heaven with Him without dying.

 This Walk, Relationship, Adventure that God is calling us to is higher than the George Lucas’s ‘Star Wars’ Movies, it is greater than J. R. R. Tolkien’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ series, greater than Homer’s ‘Iliad.’

It is an Adventure that will never end. Let it capture your heart, let the roots of your life go deep into the soil of God’s love and join Him in Living a Life of Passionate Participation in God.
Align yourself with Jesus the Messiah, the Cornerstone. This is why you were created. This is what Adam and Eve had a taste of and cut it short because they doubted God and had faith in Lucifer.
A ‘Life of walking with God’ is not meant to be a part of your life, it is meant to be your life! God has given us a free will and does not demand that we give Him our all, but invites
us into life, an adventure of intimate fellowship with Him. God is calling, He is inviting us to a life without comparison, a life with Him, the author, and perfecter of all that was and is and shall ever be. (HEB 12:1-2)
Each person’s journey will be different. It will be your own unique adventure with God but like John Bunyan’s Pilgrim in his book ‘Pilgrim’s Progress’ who was [waiting expectantly and confidently] looking forward to the city, which has fixed and firm foundations, whose Architect and Builder is God. (Heb 11:10 Amp)
We were created, for more than life on earth, a life that does not end in death and is much more than life on earth in the flesh without God.
There is no story ever written or told or video greater than the one God has for you. 

You, however, must choose to participate with Him in faith actively.

  • Be like Enoch, Live a Life of Passionate Participation in God, walk or live in continuous relationship with Him. This is why you were created.
  • Choose to walk with God. Do Not just let Him walk with you! Draw near to Him, and He will draw near to you. Operate or live by choosing to continually act in faith by seeking Him out concerning every detail of your life. By doing this your life is lived in active faith as you include God and seek Him concerning every aspect of your life. He is a rewarder of those who genuinely and sincerely seek Him. Heb 11:6
  • Your unique life; who you are, how you function, your gifts, heritage education, personality etc. make you the one and only person like you and God wants you to walk in intimate and continual relationship with Him! God loves the infinite variety He has created and celebrates every single person. God does not compare you to others. He is not a respecter of one person’s uniqueness over another.
  • He wants an intimate ongoing relationship or walks with you

JESUS IS CLEAR ABOUT MAKING DISCIPLES ARE WE?

Matt. 28:18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

 Biblical Discipleship is not complicated; it needs no new phrase to understand it. It does however require that we study the gospels and both observe and listen to Jesus.

 If you are used to a Cut and Paste Bible You Should Try the Real thing so that you get everything God has for You!

 For Us Discipleship Starts as God prepares our heart so that when we hear the Gospel we say yes to Him as Lord and Savior! For God it started before the foundation of the world.

 Biblical Discipleship

What does Discipleship look like in real life? There are many good books about Discipleship and being a God Pleaser. But before you run out to buy them you should check with “the author and finisher of our faith”, Hebrews 12:2.

 While we are to be a part of a local church and respect God’s appointed leaders we also have an individual responsibility to be growing in God’s Grace and Power. The reality is that authors and church leaders are examining the Bible, church history and other sources to write their books.

 We are told to study to show ourselves approved of God in 2 Timothy. 2:15.

You and I have a great task, which God desires we succeed at described in Matthew 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” If we are not becoming Biblical Disciples we will not be making Biblical Disciples.

Philippians 2:12 “Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear.”

If you read the Bible from Cover to Cover you will discover what a good disciple or person after God's heart lives like. Then it is up to us to submit ourselves completely to God so that we may be conformed to His image. Copywrite (c) Wayne Newcomb

 

How Can the Christian Encounter people Who Believe They are Enlightened?

Someone ask me how we can reach people in a culture where they think they are enlightened and we are not. The New Testament speaks of important principles that can help us here.

1. Salt and Light Matthew 5:13-16.

We must start with being in our culture to whatever degree is possible. Presence, kindness, humility and a life that allows others to see God at work in our circumstances are good starters.

2. Prepared to Give and Answer for the Hope that is in us. 1 Peter 3:15

Phillip’s divine encounter with the Ethiopian Eunuch ere is also a need for divine expectation so that we do not miss God encounters and only see them as circumstance. If we are walking intimately with God and sensitive to His Spirit we can be ready to do the rest if we do the above. Acts 8:26 -40.

3. Allowing the Living water to flow from us. John 7:38

People like to be treated well, encouraged, thanked and appreciated. Yes, they even being smiled at. I have found people in stores and the businesses I frequent are open to me and therefor open to God when I practice these things.

4. Sowing into unknown soil. Matthew 13

We never know the condition of another person’s heart, which is like the soil mentioned in this parable.

We should be prepared by a close walk with God, willing to be Salt and Light, prepared to Give an Answer for the Hope that is in us and Ready for Divine Appointments in which the Living Water can flow, then we can encounter our culture with the Real Light of God.

When we encounter people as outlined above we prepare them for the Spirit of God to convince them of God’s truth so that may come to repentance and receive The True Revelation of the Good news of Jesus.

 

How shall Christians Live in a Culture that thinks it is Enlightened?

We have been forgiven much and therefor should treat others as God has treated us with grace and love while not approving of their sin. Jude 23 tells us to "Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives."

If we are to enjoy our faith in Jesus the Christ or Messiah we must allow God's Word and His ways to transform us. Our thoughts, thought process, priorities and use of our life and its resources must align with and yield to His Word. The results will be as life pleasing to God.

If we measure our understanding, values and lifestyle by any other standard we are described in the Bible according to Genesis 6:5, Jeremiah 17:9. Also Romans 1:24-32, Philippians 3:18,19, James 1:14. Timothy 4:1-2,2 and Timothy 4:3-4 as having rejected God and embraced wickedness and evil.

His ways are far above ours and when we honor Him and learn of His ways and mercy we discover His unfailing love toward us Isaiah 55:9, Psalm 103:11.

His love, mercy, justice and judgment are not detached from His holiness and cannot be separated to please our evil hearts.

 We therefor can please Him more completely if we become people who are in His word throughout our day. We must be reading, meditating and submitting our thoughts, daily life, resources, talents and skills to Him according to the Bible. This will require rejecting the lies of our culture and any who think their enlightened understanding has progressed beyond God's revealed truth. People and nations who have rejected God's word have fallen on the trash heap of History and our lives and nation are not an exception to this truth.

"And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15

This is a continual process in our journey for we are imperfect beings as an old bumper sticker said" Christians are Not Perfect but Saved by Grace." Let us live according to His Word.

 

Passionate Participation in God 2014

God created us to be in an active participatory relationship.with Him He has an Enoch promise of Relationship with Him through Jesus for each of us. He has sent His Spirit to help us and His Word to build guide and instruct our relationship with Him. 

Genesis 5:22-25 Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God after the birth of Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters. 23 So all the days of Enoch were 365 years. 24 And Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God; and he was not, for God took him [home with Him].

Hebrews. 11:5 (AMP) Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to heaven, so that he did not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found, because God had translated him. For even before he was taken to heaven, he received testimony [still on record] that he had pleased and been satisfactory to God.† 6 But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out]. 

Acts 17:28 (AMP) For in Him we live and move and have our being; as even some of your [own] poets have said, For we are also His offspring.

John 14:26 (AMP) But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.

2 Tim. 3:15 (AMP) you have had a knowledge of and been acquainted with the sacred Writings, which are able to instruct you and give you the understanding for salvation which comes through faith in Christ Jesus [through the leaning of the entire human personality on God in Christ Jesus in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness]. 16 Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action), 

Ask God to give you the full measure of the relationship with Him that He has for you as you pursue Him passionately!

God's Amazing Plan for You

What an amazing thing this is, to be in such a close and pleasing relationship with God that you just walk into heaven with Him without dying. Enoch Genesis 5:24.

This Walk, Relationship, Adventure that God is calling us to is greater than the George Lucas’s ‘Star Wars’ Movies, it is greater than J. R. R. Tolkien’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ series, greater than Homer’s ‘Iliad.’

It is an Adventure that will never end. Let is capture your heart, let the roots of your life go deep into the soil of God’s love and join Him in Living a Life of Passionate Participation in God.

A ‘Life of walking with God’ is not meant to be a part of your life, it is meant to be your life! God has given us a free will and does not demand that we give Him our all, but invites us into a life, an adventure of intimate fellowship with Him.

God is calling, He is inviting us to a life without comparison, a life with Him, the author and perfecter of all that was and is and shall ever be. (HEB 12:1-2)

Each person’s journey will be different. It will be your own unique adventure with God, but like John Bunyan’s Pilgrim in his book ‘Pilgrim’s Progress’ who was [waiting expectantly and confidently] looking forward to the city which has fixed and firm foundations, whose Architect and Builder is God. ( Heb 11:10 Amp) We were created for more than life on earth, but a life that does not end in death and is much more than life on earth in the flesh without God.

There is no story ever written or told on video greater than the one God has for you. You however must choose to actively participate with Him in faith.

BE like Enoch, Live a Life of Passionate Participation in God, walk or live in continuous relationship with Him. THIS is why you were created.

Chose to walk with God. Do Not just let Him walk with you! Draw near to Him and He will draw near to you.
