My Hope

Filed under: Creators plans and purposes — Frank Thompson @ 11:40 am

I have a leagal right to the hope of my expectation; to the promises  
of God.
For in Him they are yes, and in Jesus amen.

The promises of God have been bought and paid for in full by the blood  
of the Lamb.

For the Presence of God to go before me.
For the Glory of God to fill me.
For the Love of God to flow out of me.

Flames of Fire

Who (The Father) makes His angles spirits; His ministers a flaming fire.
Psalms 104:4

The Hebrew word for fire in this verse is: lahat, means to lick; to  
blaze; set on fire; a flash of fire.
The word is used here and of the flaming sword of the cherubim who  
gaurded the way to the tree of life.
Gen. 3:24
Of Israel defeating her foes.
Num. 22:4
Of the enemies of the Messiah being completely defeated.
Ps. 72:9
Of fire from heaven licking up all the water poured upon the sacrifice  
offered by Elijah.
2 Kings 18:38
Of the wicked being burned up at Armageddon.
Mal. 4:1
There are many more scripture texts to make this point, however the  
conclusion is this: that Gods ministers being a flame of fire means  
that they are to be so full of zeal and the anointing of the Spirit  
that nothing can stand before them.
Gospel ministers are to have absolute authority and power over all the  
works of the devil, and represent God among men.

Are we thus fulfilling our place in Gods earthly realm?

His World Overcoming Power

Filed under: Believers Authority — Frank Thompson @ 12:05 pm

He has nothing in me.
What’s in me is greater than he that is in the world.
As He overcame, so I can overcome.
I do have the power to submit and resist.
God has given me ALL things that pertain to life and how to be godly.

My brothers and sisters in Christ, we must get our attention off of  
what we don’t have and focus on what we do have.

For in Him we have everything that pertains to life AND godliness.

The enemy of our souls makes it his job to NONSTOP point out what it  
is that we are lacking.
Whether that is in the spirit realm, the realm of money, health,  
relationships, or ANYOTHER thing that will take our focus, and  
attention off of HIM.

You see if He (Jesus) asks or tells us to do something, its not at any  
time based on what we have to offer that call. But ENTIRELY based on  
what HE can provide.

Its not our righteousness, but His.
Its not our peace, but His.
Its not our call, but His.
Its not what we can do, but what He can do.
He’s not asking us to fight this fight, He already has fought it, and  
won, AND made a public display of His victory.

That’s where our faith comes in that overcomes the world.
Standing on HIM and HIS ability and strength. Just beliveing that what  
He says, He backs up, and what He says He can preform through us.

There is therefore now no condemnation.
The works (or things I ask you to do) you can do.

So in the POWER of HIS might go ye and reslove the issues that are hot  
in your heart. You have built in you by the Holy Spirit the answer to  
solve the problem that bugs you.

Go get ‘em

Obey or Not to Obey

Filed under: Believers Authority — Frank Thompson @ 10:08 am

Don’t you know, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey,  
his (personal pronoun) servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience unto righteousness.
Romans 6:16

For as you have yielded your members (body and mind) servants to  
uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity: even so now yield your  
members (body and mind) servants to righteousness unto holiness.
Romans 6:19

It comes down to a decision, whether to simply obey what you read in the Bible, or not.

We All Need Him

Filed under: Power of Your Words — Frank Thompson @ 10:34 am

Wherefore we 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 (sets us back), and let us run with patience the race that is set before (each of) us.

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 now is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. 

Of whom the whole world was not worthy. 
Not only Jesus, but all those around us who stood on faith to show mankind the Father. 

They (we) are counted as sheep to the slaughter all the day long. 
For men loved darkness more than they loved the light. 

It is my hearts prayer and desire, that as we who truely want to do the will of the Father, as we grow in the knowledge of Him, that we sincerly have the best interest in mind for all men whatever station the Father has them in, and also wherever they may find themselves in their walk on earth. 

Weather their walk fits into your brand of God, is not the point. 
Have compassion in those who need compassion, mourn for those who are caught up in any type of error, and rejoice with those who are rejoicing. 

With all prayer and supplication lift up all men with thanksgiving and a true heart felt desire that all men come into the knowledge of Him.

Tongue of Fire

Filed under: Power of Your Words — Frank Thompson @ 2:59 pm

My brothers, be not many teachers, knowing that we (teachers) shall receive the greater condemnation (because of not rightly deviding the Word). 
For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body. 
James 3:1

Paul says in his first book to the Corinthians:
All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient (profitable, advantageous, good): all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not (are not edifying for another). 
1Corinthians 10:23

Give no offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God: even as I please all men in all things, NOT seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they might be saved. 
1Corinthians 10:32

Now to the tongue;
The tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: SO IS the tongue AMONG OUR MEMBERS (the church) that it DEFILES THE WHOLE BODY. And sets on fire the course of nature, and it is set on fire of (by) hell. 
James 3:6

With the tongue we bless God, even the Father; and with the tongue we curse men, which are made after the similitude of God. 
Out of the mouth come both blessing and cursing, my brothers these things ought not to be so. 
James 3:9

I have heard brothers in Christ say that they feel Jesus is leading them to expose false teachers. 

They say AND teach that these false teachers will be sent to hell. 
My god man of what spirit are you from. 

Who are you to judge another man’s servant. 
Romans 14:4
If they’re not against us they are with us.
Luke 9:50

Why do we feel the need to expose those of us within the body of Christ that don’t fit your brand of God as false and hell bound. 
Why are we not instead exposing the works of darkness through say, new age, or universalism. 

When the world looks at us fighting and name calling amongst ourselves, we appear as nut cases, and who in their right minds would want to hookup with a crowd of people that backbite and devour their sick and wounded. 

May God forgive us, for we know not what we are doing. 
Luke 23:34

Caster of Stones?

Filed under: Why — Frank Thompson @ 3:50 am

Romans 14:19
Let us therefore (or in conclusion of the previous verses 1-18) follow  
after these things which makes for peace, and things wherewith one may edify one another.

Philippians 2:14
Do all things without murmuring and disputings:
That you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God…

Ephesians 4:16
…unto the edifying of itself in love.

Romans 13:10
Love works no ill to his neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of  
the law.

2 Corinthians 5:19
…reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their tresspasses to  
them; AND has committed to us the same word of reconciliation.

The reason I’m trying to make the point about looking past another  
man’s short comings, faults and failures, is because we are to mourn  
for those who are caught up in sins of all sorts, not cast stones at  
them and cast them into the depths of hell because of our own  
selfrighteouness and blindness.

The point being this found in:
Romans 14:4
Who are you that judges another man’s servant?
To his own master he stands or falls.
Yes, he shall be held up, for GOD is able to make him stand.

Before we call fire down from Heaven onto any man God has raised up or  
any human for that matter, consider what spirit you are coming from.
Remember Jesus’s rebuke of his own men.

As truely sons and servants of the Most High, please walk  
circumspectly considering our ownselves because the days are evil.

He who is without sin, cast the first stone.

Galatians 6:1
Brothers, if a man be overtaken in a fault, YOU that are SPIRITUAL,  
restore such a one in a spirit of meekness.

One I truely believe we need a whole lot more meekness.
Two you can judge yourself where you are in your spiritual walk with  
God, if you are a stone caster or you are attempting (even if only  
through prayer)
To restore such a one.

Why? Because yet again in James 3:17
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable,  
gentle, and easy to be intreated, full if mercy and good fruits,  
without partiality….

Please my freinds live at peace with one another, and lift up in  
prayer to our Father who truely cares for them also.
And not name call and cast stones.

With all desire that we all come into His fulness not only for  
ourselves but for all manner of men.

Afflicted

Filed under: Prophetic Words — Frank Thompson @ 2:21 pm

Back in the summer, I was in my bed doubled over in pain from what I  
now have found out was a mass pushing against my large intestine.

I asked the Lord in refference to a word He spoke to me; Lord you said  
You would make me a mighty man because of my love for Your creation;  
is this the way a mighty man is made? (in the bed of affliction)
He said the pathway of affliction leads to the precipice of victorious  
life.

Then the scripture came into my mind in Psalms 119:71
It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn Your  
ways.

Which led me to search out that verse, which then led me also to  
Psalms 119:67 which states:
Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now I have kept Thy word.

In other words it could read, before I was afflicted I did what ever I  
wanted to do without regaurd for Gods will for my life.

Which upon further meditation of this thought I remembered the verse  
that says in Hebrews 12:11
Now no chastening for the present seems to be joyous, but grievous:  
nevertheless afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness  
unto them that has been exercised by it.

The question then arises in my mind, is chastisment and affliction one  
and the same?

In the first letter from Paul to the church that was in Corinth in the  
fifth chapter there he makes refference to a man that has taken his  
fathers wife.

After which he says that you should deliver such a one to Satan for  
the destruction of his flesh, that his spirit man may be saved in the  
day of the Lord.

Later in the very same letter he states in the eleventh chapter in  
refference to the Lords supper about examining ourselves that we don’t  
eat or drink unworthily, for this cause many are weak and sickly among  
us, and sleep before their time.

The main point of that thought is found in the thirty first verse that  
states:
For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
But when you are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, (WHY) that we  
should not be judged with the world.

So I would say in conclusion that if we are born again into the family  
of God and we find ourselves in a place that our flesh is being  
destroyed, (such as that happened to me this past summer) remember:
For whom the Lord loves He chastens and scourges every son who He  
recieves.
Hebrews 12:6

Is every affliction a chastisement?
I think not, yet we need to examine ourselves and judge our ownselves  
daily with fear and trembling.
Remember also that the demons believe, yet they tremble.
For the just are scarcely saved.

So my brothers and sisters in the great and woundedful body of Christ  
may all of our eyes be opened and our ears likewise be opened to the  
truths of the Spirit of God found in His Manual that we may all grow  
in the fulness and likeness of Him, that we will ultimately bring  
glory to Him because of Christ in us.

Peace to you.

His Righteousness

Filed under: Creators plans and purposes — Frank Thompson @ 6:20 am

1John 2:1
My little children, these things I write to you, that you sin not. And  
if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus the Christ  
the righteous.

Romans 5:19
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the  
obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Romans 6:16
Know you not , that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his  
servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin into death, or of  
obedience unto righteousness.

Romans 6:17
But God be thanked, that you were the servants of sin, but…
v.18
Being then made free from sin, you became servants of righteousness.

So in conclusion then:

Romans 6:19
for as you have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to  
iniquity to iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to  
righteousness to holiness.

Serving One Another

Filed under: Creators plans and purposes — Frank Thompson @ 2:18 pm

In the book of Acts we see countless times where the Holy Spirit  
either constrained them or instructed them to go somewhere or do  
something.

In particular in the 16th chapter where Paul and Silas where not only  
thrown into prison and their feet locked in stocks, but they where  
first beaten with rods.

Upon entering into their bondage and apparent times of darkness and  
pain, where they probably could have said why oh why Lord?

But in the 25th verse it says at midnight, (are we having a midnight  
experience) they prayed and sang praises to God. It also said that the  
other prisoners could hear them.

Then suddenly (are we expecting anything to suddenly to happen to us?)  
there was a great earthquake, so that the very foundations of the  
prison were shaken: then immediately all the doors were opened, and  
everyones bands or shackels were loosed.

In prayer and praises in the times of our depair to the King of Kings  
will cause a shaking and a suddenly to happen in our lives also.  
Because God is not a respecter of anybody, if He will do it for one,  
He will do it for another.

Are we expecting any immediate suddenlies to happen to us?
Probably not because of our sin concisience towards ourselves.

Keep in mind its not our righteousness we are leaning on, it is His.

Its not our sinlessness its His.

So expect Good things from our Father who honestly desires to give us  
all good and perfect gifts, even to give us His Kingdom.

But one more point about our text in Acts, as soon as the jailor first  
got saved he straitway started taking care of Paul and Silas out of  
his joy that he and his household were saved.

This leads me to my question.

Are we out of our joy for our salvation serving others out of a pure  
heart towards God?
