Straight Talk…God’s Glory & Satan, Rodna Epley

Posted in Gospel, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , , on February 16, 2018 by paulthepoke

Rodna2 Corinthians 4:4 In their case the god (Satan) of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

The enemy’s primary function on this earth is to blind the minds of everyone so we can’t see the “Gospel of the Glory” of Christ. The devil wants us powerless and not operating like Jesus or the first church. He wants us to look just like the world. So that no one gets saved, including the church. So that no one thinks God is real or has any power. And so that God never receives any glory. This has been Satan’s plan from the beginning. He’s always been after the throne.

God’s glory is the highest form of light there is, where anything becomes possible. That’s why Jesus came, to restore His glory in man (that was lost in Eden). Jesus came for the sake of love. This gives the Father glory! He seats us in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, far above all principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness. Of course, the devil doesn’t want anyone knowing they are supposed to operate in the glory of God! Because we destroy his works in our lives. We overcome in Christ when we have knowledge of the glory! We overcome all sin and flip every dark situation into light!

Action

But God UNBLINDS the minds of those of us who step into Christ! We put on the Mind of Christ! Watch this…

2 Corinthians 3:18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Compare this with James 1:22-25 which is also referring to another type of “believer”…

James 1:22-25 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

So in one example we have those true believers who not only have Christ in them but they step into Christ. They are doers of the Word. They hear and follow the voice of the Holy Spirit. AND we are being transformed into the SAME image of THE GLORY OF THE LORD. This the Face we see looking back at us in the mirror according to 2 Corinthians 3:18!

It’s all clear in Scripture when the veil is removed in Christ.

Straight Talk…God’s Glory & Resurrection, Rodna Epley

Posted in Gospel, Resurrection, Rodna Epley, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on February 7, 2018 by paulthepoke

RodnaThe power of God is in His glory. Romans 6:4 tells us that it was the glory of the Father that raised Jesus from the dead!

Romans 6:4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.

What’s really cool is that in John 2:19 Jesus set Heaven’s alarm clock for this to happen when Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

This wasn’t just prophetic as we know the word prophetic. Jesus’ words went into the future and set the timer for Him to be raised from the dead by the Father’s glory!

Jesus was operating in His Father’s glory, the same glory He gave us in John 17:5,22, which is activated by the spoken Word! Wow! His Word amazes me! The fact that we too are supposed to operate in this same glory is even more mind blowing.

John 17:5 And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.

John 17:22 The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one…

– So Jesus raised Himself from the dead by His own spoken prophetic word.

John 2:19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

 
– The Holy Spirit raised Jesus from the dead.

Romans 8:11 If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.

 
– And the glory of the Father raised Jesus from the dead!

Romans 6:4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.

The THREE raised Jesus from the dead as ONE!
