My comments in Rick Joyner’s response to Lee Grady regarding Todd Bentley

Hi,

I wanted to make some observations regarding Mr Joyner's response to Mr Grady posted at http://charismamag.com/index.php/component/content/article/20035:

God sees Christians as having been perfected if they are being sanctified!

Hebrews 10:14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.

This Scripture refers to a great mystery. It relates to what Jesus Christ of Nazareth achieved by dying on the cross. This is the “one offering” spoken of here.

The Scriptures give many “past tense” declarations concerning things which until now have not been manifested. We don’t see Christians behaving pefectly, walking with God perfectly. And yet, there is a sense in which we are acceptable to God as if we were perfect AS LONG AS WE ARE BEING SANCTIFIED.

Thanksgiving for Answered Prayer from Psalm 119

Thank you Lord that you do not let me wander from Your commandments.
(Psalm 119:10)

Thank you Lord that you teach me Your statutes.
(Psalm 119:12)

Thank you Father God that you deal bountifully with me that I may live and keep Your word.
(Psalm 119:17)

Thank You Father God that You open my eyes, that I may see wonderful things from Your law.
(Psalm 119:18)

Thank You Father God that You do not hide Your commandments from me.
(Psalm 119:19)

Thank You Father God that You remove from me reproach and contempt as I keep Your testimonies.

Prayer of Consecration from John G. Lake

Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you boldly in Jesus’ name. Take me as I am. I now give myself – my heart, my mind, my body, my time, talents and treasure to you. Fill me and possess me. I renounce all sins, self and satan. Jesus, sanctify me. Cleanse me, purge me, purify me. Your will be done in my life, on earth as it is in heaven. Let me manifest a faithful spirit, a pure mind and a sickless body to your glory. Amen.

Preparation for Ministry

The Word of God challenges us to put on the whole armour of God. Ephesians 6:10,11.

We are to have feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.

What does this mean?

Lets look at each part of it. What do these words mean?

The word gospel means ‘good news’. What does the word ‘peace’ mean? The Word used in Greek is ‘eirene’ and comes from a root word meaning ‘to join or make one’.

Fixing a Bad Relationship

If you had a bad relationship with somebody it is best to follow these steps:

Usually there are faults on both sides in any relationship problem. One of the keys to being blessed by God in this area is humility. You may consider that the other person is 90% to blame, while your blame is only 10%. Nevertheless, you are not responsible for that person’s attitudes and actions, only your own. There is the possibility you have misunderstood what they said and did. The more you humble yourself in this process the more you can expect God’s blessing.

Eternal Security – Dare we believe it?

Back in 1997 I spoke with a pastor and the subject of the eternal security
of the believer came up. This pastor is a lovely, gracious man and is doing
many things to reach people in the community with the gospel. He obviously
loves the Lord and loves people. When I questioned him regarding the contents
of one of the theological books he was reading, it came out that he believed
in the doctrine that a truly born again believer is eternally secure, no
matter what he may do from that time on.

Introduction

I remember this day very well because something supernatural happened to me. I had just started opening my Holy Bible to find where to read. Suddenly, my heart caught an invisible fire. It was as if the room temperature had suddenly been increased. Had the house caught fire? No, there was no visible smoke or fire in the room.

I realised that this was the mighty presence of the Holy Spirit.

Training Believers to Do the Healing Ministry

Shows the Scriptural promises and expectations of Christ relating to this ministry and answers the objections Christians have to the idea of training believers to do the ministry of divine healing.

Spiritual Growth

I continue to behold as in a mirror with unveiled face the glory of the Lord and am constantly being transformed into His very own image in ever-increasing splendour and from one degree of glory to another. 2Cor 3.18

God has shone in my heart the light for the illumination of the knowledge of the majesty and glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ, the Messiah. 2Cor 4.6

I always carry about in my body the dying of the Lord Jesus, so that the resurrection life of Jesus also may be shown forth by and in my body. 2Cor 4.10
