|NUGGETS FROM THE 7 CHURCH
13-4 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
The importance of revelation by the Spirit to a true believer can never be over emphasized. Revelation means more to you than perhaps you realize. Now I am not talking about this Book of Revelation and you. I am talking about ALL revelation... The church is built on Revelation, on the "Thus Saith the Lord".
(Editor- Not just some so called revelation, but on THUS SAITH THE LORD. Most of the revelations I've heard others tell about are not from God because God does not confirm them.)
14-4 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
Jesus said about Satan, "He has no part in Me and I have no part in him." The devil would like to prove that different; but he cannot, so he does all he can to destroy confidence in the Word. But when the church disbelieves Satan and believes the Spirit's revelation of the Word, the gates of hell cannot prevail against her.
15-1 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
It is that Satan has got a hold in their lives through sin, indifference, and disease.
(Editor- When a congregation is indifferent, then Satan has got ahold of them.)
15-2 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
Let me show you another reason why Satan hates this Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ in the church. He knows that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever, and He changes not. He knows that a whole lot more than do ninety percent of the theologians. He knows that since God is immutable in His nature, then He is just as immutable in His ways. Thus Satan knows assuredly that the original church at Pentecost with the power of God (Mark 16 in action) is the True Church that Jesus claims as His own. All else is false. It has to be.
15-3 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
Now remember this. Christ in the True Church is a continuation of the Book of Acts. But the Book of Revelation shows how that the antichrist spirit would come into the church and defile it, making it lukewarm, formal and powerless. It exposes Satan, revealing his works (attempted destruction of God's people and the discrediting of God's word) right down to the time he is cast into the lake of fire. He fights that. He cannot stand it. He knows that if the people get the TRUE REVELATION of the TRUE CHURCH and what she is, what she stands for and that SHE CAN DO THE GREATER WORKS, she will be an invincible army. If they get a true revelation of the two spirits within the framework of the Christian church, and by God's Spirit discern and withstand the antichrist spirit, Satan will be powerless before her. He will be as definitely thwarted today as when Christ withstood his every effort to gain power over Him in the desert. Yes, Satan hates revelation. But we love it. With true revelation in our lives, the gates of hell cannot prevail against us, but we will prevail over them.
16-1 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
It is going to take the operation of the Holy Ghost. That means this Book can't be revealed to anyone but a special class of people. It will take one with prophetic insight. It will require the ability to hear from God. It will require supernatural instruction, not just a student comparing verse with verse, though that is good. But a mystery requires the teaching of the Spirit or it never becomes clear. How we need to hear from God and lay ourselves open and become yielded to the Spirit to hear and know.
16-2 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
It is the revelation of God that will give you authority over the devil. And you can see why they who would add or take from it would be cursed. It would have to be so, for who can add or take away from the perfect revelation of God and overcome the enemy? It is that simple. There is nothing of such prevailing power as the revelation of the Word.
17-1 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
Revelation 1:5-6. "Unto Him That loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen."
20-1 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
The great Jehovah appeared to Israel in a pillar of fire. As the Angel of the Covenant He lived in that pillar of fire and led Israel daily.
20-4 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
That outward tabernacle men could see was called Jesus. He was the Lord of Glory, the Almighty manifested in flesh. He is God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. He is all that.
22-1 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
But let us not stop there. Read now in Revelation 3:21, "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne."
23-1 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
The ability to discern the heart-thoughts in men made the elect of God to understand that here was the Messiah, the anointed Word of God. Hebrews 4:12, "For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
24-1 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
That's the reason we act different from the world. Our citizenship is in heaven. We reflect the Spirit of the world of our rebirth where Jesus is the King. That is why our women do not dress in men's clothing or cut their hair or use all those cosmetics and other things that the world likes so much. That is why our men don't drink and smoke and carry on in sin. Our dominion is the dominion over sin and it is in force through the power that is in the Spirit of Christ That in-dwells us. Every kingdom on earth is going to be torn down, but ours will remain.
25-1 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
This same One Who was known as Jesus after the flesh went back to the pillar of fire. But He promised He would come again and dwell amongst His people by the Spirit. And on the day of Pentecost that pillar of fire came down and it separated itself in tongues of fire upon each one of them. What was God doing? He was separating Himself into the church, giving all those men and women a part of Himself.
228 REV.OF.JESUS.CHRIST JEFF.IN ROJC 9-67 60-1204M
How can a man come along and say "The holy man is the pope, the holy man is the bishop"? The holy Man is Christ, the Holy Spirit in us. How can you say the laity has no word to say? Each one of you has something to say. Each one of you's got a work to do. Each one of you's got to carry a message. Glory.
...The Holy Spirit has a right to move anywhere that He wants to, upon anybody He wants to. You don't have to take what some bishop or some priest says. He's our only Priest right, a High Priest. Now: Prophet, Priest, and King...
26-4 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
I admit that it takes a real revelation from the Holy Ghost to see the truth about the Godhead these days when we are in the midst of the perverting of so much Scripture. But the prevailing, overcoming church is built on revelation so we can expect God to reveal His truth to us. However, you actually don't need a revelation on water baptism. It is right there staring you in the face.
27-3 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1
If you have been baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, God will fill you with His Spirit. That is the Word. Acts 19:6 which we read was the fulfilling of Acts 2:38, "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." See, Paul, by the Holy Ghost, said exactly what Peter said by the Holy Ghost. And what was said CANNOT be changed. It has to be the same from Pentecost until the very last elected one has been baptized. Galatians 1:8, "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."Back to Main Page
