We assemble around HIM, and HE rules over us (Psalm 7:7 - NIV). Through Christ, the Spirit (essence) of God, and his Word we are changed. HOW does the Spirit of God, given to His New Covenant Church WORK in humans?

Sermon Notes

INTRO:   Each one of us has the same spirit essence of God and Christ abiding in us. The apostle Paul writes:

((((For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit” (1 Corinthians 12:12-13 1 Corinthians 12:12-13 [12] For as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. [13] For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
American King James Version×
).

BENEFIT STATEMENT: In fact we are members one of another because all begotten sons and daughters have the same essence of God and Christ, the Holy Spirit, abiding in them (Romans 12:5 Romans 12:5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
American King James Version×
). It is quite sobering to consider that we are members one of another. And just as it is with the human body, when we injure any body part the whole body suffers. A stubbed toe affects the whole body. A suffering brother or sister affects the whole spiritual body.

Thus, we are admonished to love one another fervently. Note the words of the apostle Peter:

((((“Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently” (1 Peter 1:22 1 Peter 1:22Seeing you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit to unfeigned love of the brothers, see that you love one another with a pure heart fervently:
American King James Version×
).

AND we, assemble around HIM, and HE rules over us. This is all by HIS essence and Calling. HOW does that Spirit of God, given to begin His New Covenant Church WORK in humans? What does it LOOK like? How does God make Himself known to humanity through His People?

SPS: Each ONE of the Church was purchased by the blood of Christ, and is anchored here by His Spirit. The Church does not belong to us but to God and we are members one of another in God’s Spiritual Body. Today we discuss what IS Your Life Anchor.

BODY:

  1. Our Orientation to God is that we assemble around Him and HE rules over us.

Psalms 7:7 Psalms 7:7So shall the congregation of the people compass you about: for their sakes therefore return you on high.
American King James Version×
(NIV)
7  Let the assembled peoples gather around you. Rule over them from on high;

(((((Acts 1:4-5 Acts 1:4-5 [4] And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, said he, you have heard of me. [5] For John truly baptized with water; but you shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.
American King James Version×
(NIV)
4  On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. 5  For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit."

Acts 2:1-4 Acts 2:1-4 [1] And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. [2] And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. [3] And there appeared to them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat on each of them. [4] And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
American King James Version×
(NIV)
1  When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2  Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3  They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

God does not place us on earth alone as His People …leave us to follow Him and represent Him. He has not left us orphans as Christ told us. [He will never leave us - Hebrews 13:5 Hebrews 13:5Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have: for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
5  Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." Deut 31.6,8; Joshua 1.5]

John 14:15-18 John 14:15-18 [15] If you love me, keep my commandments. [16] And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; [17] Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you. [18] I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
15  "If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16  And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever-- 17  the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18  I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

WE are the Product of that initial giving of the Essence of God to His People under this New Agreement between His Holy Nation and Himself. WE are now given His Mind and His Heart to respond personally to each day.

1 Peter 1:18-21 1 Peter 1:18-21 [18] For as much as you know that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; [19] But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: [20] Who truly was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, [21] Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
18  knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, 19  but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. 20  He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you 21  who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

All this is made POSSIBLE by Christ’s Sacrifice to ALLOW vindicated, pure humans to have the Spirit of God IN them.

1 Corinthians 6:20 1 Corinthians 6:20For you are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
20  For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.

OUR response is required in this personal relationship with our Great Father Creator Saving God.

((((((Isaiah 66:1-2 Isaiah 66:1-2 [1] Thus said the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that you build to me? and where is the place of my rest? [2] For all those things has my hand made, and all those things have been, said the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembles at my word.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
1  Thus says the LORD: "Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest? 2  For all those things My hand has made, And all those things exist," Says the LORD. "But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, And who trembles at My word.

  1. Truth at the Core of Human Thought is God’s WORD by His Spirit.

Christ was concerned that we would understand the relationship necessary to make NEW Family Members in God’s Family. So rather than concern Himself primarily with His impending torture …He discussed OUR ongoing relationship with God and HOW that works.

            John 17:17 John 17:17Sanctify them through your truth: your word is truth.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
17  Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

John 14:6 John 14:6Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
6  Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

So, the relationship with The Family of God is because of and through Jesus Christ with the Father FOR the whole Body.

This Holy relationship is sanctified, (set apart) from the corrupt world by the Truth through Christ …Who IS the WORD. And God’s WORDS are Life.

John 6:63 John 6:63It is the spirit that vivifies; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
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.

Christ equates God’s Word with Life. And this is done as the Spirit of God leads us to His Words.           

There are two convicting agents in this personal relationship of God’s owning us and our consistent humble response to His Life Guidance.

  • The Spirit
  • The Word of God

[This understanding is a miracle for YOU personally and in God’s time]

John 16:7-8 John 16:7-8 [7] Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send him to you. [8] And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
7  Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. 8  And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

Romans 10:16-17 Romans 10:16-17 [16] But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias said, Lord, who has believed our report? [17] So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
16  But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, "Lord, who has believed our report?" 17  So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

The way we are surrounded with in this corrupted world is …False religion is about deceit and about playing on the lust of the flesh, pride of life. Philosophy claims to answer, and so does science, but both lead us to the empirical of the five senses and can lead us into darkness. We cannot control and bring into existence anything. THAT is measurable Truth.

Revelation is how we also receive knowledge. No man knows the things of God except through revelation.

  1. Build God’s personal 2-Way Spiritual Relationship –

THAT is YOUR Life’s Purpose – & ANCHOR

What IS the great Truth hidden through the ages? The Plan and purpose of the Great God even before the foundation of the world.

2 Timothy 1:8-10 2 Timothy 1:8-10 [8] Be not you therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be you partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; [9] Who has saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, [10] But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death, and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
8  Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, 9  who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began, 10  but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,

Hebrews 2:5-10 Hebrews 2:5-10 [5] For to the angels has he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. [6] But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that you are mindful of him? or the son of man that you visit him? [7] You made him a little lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor, and did set him over the works of your hands: [8] You have put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. [9] But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. [10] For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
5  For He has not put the world to come, of which we speak, in subjection to angels. 6  But one testified in a certain place, saying: "What is man that You are mindful of him, Or the son of man that You take care of him? 7  You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, And set him over the works of Your hands. 8  You have put all things in subjection under his feet." For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him. 9  But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone. 10  For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

The shear awesomeness and genius of this Plan is beyond our grasp, but Family can help explain the Truth of God.

At some point in eternity God and the Logos decided to bring sons and daughters into the glory of the Family of God and therefore be born into it.

Adam and Eve sinned and brought the death penalty on themselves and then onto all of us. So the only begotten Son of God would die to redeem every person who ever lived or would live.

((((Revelation 13:8 Revelation 13:8And all that dwell on the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
8  All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

The only One Who could do that would be a God being.

Philippians 2:5-11 Philippians 2:5-11 [5] Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: [6] Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: [7] But made himself of no reputation, and took on him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: [8] And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient to death, even the death of the cross. [9] Why God also has highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: [10] That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; [11] And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
5  Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6  who, being [existing or to be] in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7  but made Himself of no reputation [ to empty], taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8  And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. 9  Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10  that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11  and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

It was absolutely essential for the Members of the Family would fulfill their structure. The outpouring of Love is beyond our grasp. But we experience it.

James 1:17-18 James 1:17-18 [17] Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no ficklenss, neither shadow of turning. [18] Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. 18  Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.    

((((1 John 4:8 1 John 4:8He that loves not knows not God; for God is love.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
8  He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
1 John 4:16 1 John 4:16And we have known and believed the love that God has to us. God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
16  And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

Christ kept the big picture of the Family burning in His Mind in order to complete this. God and Christ are co-eternal and have existed that way and co-essential and of the same essence.

Hebrews 12:1-2 Hebrews 12:1-2 [1] Why seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, [2] Looking to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
1  Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2  looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

WHAT was that “Joy”?

That joy was to see you and me as His brethren in the family of God. We are heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:16-17 Romans 8:16-17 [16] The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: [17] And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
16  The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17  and if children, then heirs--heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

Christ is not ashamed to call us brethren because the same Spirit that is in God is in Christ—and is also in each one that has been sanctified.

Hebrews 2:11-13 Hebrews 2:11-13 [11] For both he that sanctifies and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brothers, [12] Saying, I will declare your name to my brothers, in the middle of the church will I sing praise to you. [13] And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God has given me.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
11  For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12  saying: "I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You." 13  And again: "I will put My trust in Him." And again: "Here am I and the children whom God has given Me."

(((((Hebrews 7:1-3 Hebrews 7:1-3 [1] For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; [2] To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; [3] Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like to the Son of God; stays a priest continually.

Upon begettal and then birth we are of the very essence of God. Born Spirit Beings, not considered created Beings.

John 1:12-14 John 1:12-14 [12] But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: [13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Romans 5:6-11 Romans 5:6-11 [6] For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. [7] For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. [8] But God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. [9] Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. [10] For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

6  For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8  But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9  Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10  For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11  And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

CONCLUSION:

WHAT is the anchor of LIFE that Christ kept in front of Him, and WE are given to ANCHOR us too?

To become fully Glorious, Radiant Spirit Beings in God’s Eternal Family as IS Christ!

[Don Ward letter]

The most precious gift of the Spirit is life. Our biological parents gave us physical life. We know how short this physical life is. The psalmist writes that our life is as dust, as the grass and flower of the field that flourishes for a short time and is gone with the wind (Psalms 103:14-16 Psalms 103:14-16 [14] For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. [15] As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. [16] For the wind passes over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

But God and Christ have made it possible for us to receive everlasting life—to be born of the Spirit and live forever.

So, as we observe this coming day of Pentecost, let us be glad and rejoice evermore in the precious gift of the Holy Spirit that imparts life and hope for a glorious future as kings and priests in the Kingdom of God.

  • Orientation to God - we assemble around Him and HE rules over us - Anchors us with His Word & Spirit. (We are not anchored in life by our approach.)
  • Truth at the Core of Human Thought - God’s WORD / SPIRIT anchoring us in Family

ALL of this comes to YOU through God’s Spirit which anchors the Church being built by Christ.

The Spiritual Church of God began on the Day of Pentecost 31AD; and was made possible by Christ’s Sacrifice and the Holy Spirit …in repentant, submissive, humble humans who will share in God’s Family with Christ “as He is”.

The Church Family of God is all symbolically pictured by the Holy City on Mount Zion.

Psalms 87:5-6 Psalms 87:5-6 [5] And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her. [6] The LORD shall count, when he writes up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.

(NKJV)
5  And of Zion it will be said, "This one and that one were born in her; And the Most High Himself shall establish her." 6  The LORD will record, When He registers the peoples: "This one was born there." Selah

Is THIS where you are anchored?
