Scripture reading: 1 Peter 2:4-5

Let us read about what God says of a people whom He is calling. Matthew 16:18, “And  I say also unto thee (Peter), That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church… 

I am not Peter and you are not Peter. So, who are you? You are one of those “lively stones” built up into a spiritual household as it says in 1 Peter 2:5.

You are “a stone!” You are “Peter!” So, “Peter – thou stone,” you are part of this magnificent building that God is constructing in the earth; and this building must have a foundation! The foundation must be upon the Rock, Christ Jesus. “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

I know what it is to call upon the name of Jesus Christ – “in spirit and in truth.” The time you call best is when you have ten tons of demons on you. That is the time you really call: “JESUS!” That is the time you cry out best. I am speaking from experience.

Matthew 16:17, “And Jesus answered and said unto him, blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.”

No matter how I preach, I cannot reveal the “name” of Jesus to you. It must be a part of you! You must imbibe it! You must think about it! You must believe it! You must take it in NIGHT AND DAY! He said, “Put it as frontlets before thine eyes, and let it become a part of you.” I will change this word “name” to “nature,” for that is what it means, and as this name (nature) becomes a part of you, you become a part of Him.

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him …If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto (in) him and make our abode with (within) him” (John 14:21, 23).

When is He going to love you with that kind of a love?

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him.”

“IF you will keep my words,” …and “IF my words abide in you…” Do you understand it? Anything you continuously think about, anything you do, anything you study it becomes a part of you! Glory to God!

This is why I say to the people of God that there is grave danger in studying psychology! We should not allow the world to teach us and our children man’s psychology in their schools. Psychology is destruction to the mind of Christ. God is a Spirit and He created man as a spiritual being and the mind as His dwelling place through which He can communicate with us, Spirit to spirit. Psychology is a science that deals with the mind and the behavior of man from a human point of view. Some of you, my readers, are bound by this spirit. Psychology is a demonic thing when man teaches man about man! You meet a person, and because you studied psychology, you keep looking into his eyes. You ask him a shocking statement, “Did you steal the book?” and you look into his eyes. You want to see his reaction.

Once the children of God studied psychology, it is difficult for them to get away from it and trust the discernment of the Spirit. It is difficult to get away from physiognomy. You look at a person’s face, you see the different marks in his face, and you begin to sum him up from the marks in his face! He might have just gotten saved but all those marks remain there. Their meaning might have been canceled by the Holy Ghost and now they have no meaning, but you are believing a lie because you are trusting what science says about those facial marks.

I now speak the word in the name of Jesus Christ! I loose you from the psychology spirit that is in many of you, that you are learning at school. I command your deliverance in the name of Jesus!

I break your yoke, you lying spirit! Get out of the church of God! Get out of the house of God! Get out of the temple of the living God! There is no place here for you. You have long occupied the people. You have long deceived the nations. Now your time has come. In the name of Jesus Christ, I speak against you, in the mighty name of Jesus, and by the power of God, we break up your organization; that organized spirit that is coming into the people, creeping into the church! That demon of the world, that has crept in among the people of God and into the minds of the people, into the houses of preachers, into churches and Sunday schools; this demonic psychology that is destroying the people – let the people go…!

I am a little stone, but part of the household of God. We are “lively stones fitly joined together,” building up the temple of the living God.

Thought for today: As we remember that we are part of this magnificent building that God is constructing in the earth, let us purge ourselves from all man’s teachings and have the Spirit of God lead us in our daily affairs.

Scripture reading: John 6:53-58

When Jesus spoke in John 6 about the need to eat His flesh and drink His Blood, some of His disciples misunderstood Him completely and left Him immediately, because they said that He was teaching them cannibalism! God is always teaching us SPIRITUAL THINGS and not carnal things; if He takes carnal things to give us natural understanding, then it means that that understanding must be translated in spiritual terms.

Jesus is saying that we should eat His flesh and drink His Blood. Feeding on Christ is the fourth stage in the Tabernacle of Moses or in the gospel, and it is the fourth seal. When we learn how to feed on Christ, we begin to understand the fourth seal. That seal is open and that trumpet is blowing. To understand this, we must first understand the three dimensions in which we feed on Christ.

1. Christ in the church,
2. Christ within, and
3. Christ in Jesus among us.

First, we feed on Christ from the Word. The Christ WITHOUT comes to us through the Word. We are told that the Word is life. John 1:1 and 2, “In the beginning was the Word (the Logos), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.” We are talking about God being with God. That is, the person we knew as the Word, manifesting in a man, Christ Jesus. Christ Jesus is God. Verse 3, “All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.” We find out here that the Word is a creative being, a creative person, this Word of God that we are dealing with. God translates Himself into Word form and issues forth this form to us and we capture it by faith. Verses 4 and 5, “In Him was life.” We spoke of the Word and now we say, “Him.” “In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not (could not overcome it).”

We read the Word from the pages of the book and lift it off the pages by our consciousness of who God is and we receive the Word by faith. Believing the Word brings life to us. It is not that life is in the book and when we shut the book we shut up God in the book. The Word is life and the Word is hovering around us waiting for us to accept it. When we do, it becomes Christ, a person, a being, inside of us. Christ without is manifested to us through hearing and reading the Word.

Another person can manifest Christ to us. Christ is in us, therefore, He is in other people also. Being in other people, He manifests to us and we must have Christ in us to be able to receive Christ from someone else. Sometimes you do not have Christ IN you, but you can receive Christ, because Christ is WITH you. There are two manifestations. In John 14:17c, Jesus, speaking about the Holy Spirit says, “For he dwelleth WITH you, and shall be IN you.” There is a Christ with us and a Christ in us. The Christ in me will recognize the Christ in another person. This is why criticizing people destroys you as well as the other person. Criticizing means that you are not looking at Christ in the other person.

Some people do not have Christ in them and when they speak, you must be able to discern that it is not Christ speaking. The Christ in you will respond to the Christ in others. When a message is delivered, the Christ in the speaker will touch the Christ in you; it will bring a quickening in you and you will believe that the Word is true. The truth of God has to be believed by those who want God and by those who reach out towards God.

(Excerpt from The Book of Revelation, Volume 1, pages 116-118)

Thought for today: Let us feed abundantly this day on the Word of life and see His creative power come forth in our midst.
