Ephesians 4:11-15 He gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come in unity of faith and knowledge of Jesus, to a perfect man, the measure of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed about with every wind of doctrine, by men in deceitful plotting, but, speaking truth in love, growing in all things to Jesus who is the head, the Christ.
Our spiritual growth comes from the Word: 1 Peter 2:1-3 laying aside all malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and evil speaking. As newborn babies, desire the pure milk of the word that you may grow if you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
We are also born again the Word: 1 Peter 1:23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives & abides forever.
We also grow by speaking His Word. Ephesians 4:15-16 speaking truth in love, so we may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ.
Without Love we don’t grow: 1 Corinthians 3:1-4, I could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as carnal babes in Christ. I fed you milk and not solid food; for you were not able to receive it, and even now not because you are still carnal. Where there is envy, strife, and divisions you behave like mere men?
Having no understanding of Word affects wrong ways. Ephesians 4:18-24 their understanding is darkened, alienated from a life of God. Because of ignorance and blindness of heart past feelings, have given over to works of uncleanness with greed, having no understanding, not learning Christ. If you have heard Jesus and been taught by Jesus as truth: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts. So be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new man who was created according to God, in true righteousness.
Our walking with His love hold life: 1 John 3:13-14 Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you. We know we have passed from death to life.
Our perfection is no longer child like: 1 Corinthians 13:11-13 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror face to face. Now I know in part, but I shall know as I am known. Now abide in faith, hope, greatest is love.
Message to all Believers: 2 Peter 1:1-4 To those who obtained like precious faith by the righteousness of Jesus: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in knowledge of God, as His divine power has given to you all things pertaining to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Jesus who called us by glory, which has been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world.
SEPTEMBER 8, 1974 WORD from LORD while I was thinking about what’s going on in the world, suddenly, Lord was sitting in front of me with His hands lifted saying: “I have a special message for My people that are like lost sheep spread out and separated going wrong directions. Many need help for they will be lost the way they headed. I am sending you forth unto My people who need help for time is short”.
BOTTOM LINE: What Jesus did for us is free for the taking, what are so many people waiting for? Without God we’re none of the above.
