Scripture reading: Ephesians 4:31-32

In these days, there is so much strife and division among people that there has been the need to cry out, “Lord, how can these things be?”

The natural, physical body functions beautifully and perfectly, without any single part being against the other. This physical body is a type of the Spiritual Body, therefore, there must be a perfect function of the Body of Christ.

God divides and separates through the working of the Spirit – good from evil, light from darkness, righteousness from unrighteousness – so that His people can be free from all the works of the enemy, and be separated unto Him in Holiness and Righteousness – PRAISE GOD.

God, the giver of understanding, has been unveiling the mystery.

Deliverance from every situation is in HIS NAME – not name as label on someone or something, but HIS NAME which is HIS NATURE. That nature is love, peace, submission, etc. Whatsoever we ask in His Name.

So many times, believers come together and leave undelivered and unblessed – frustrated and discouraged, not having received from the Lord that which has been promised. The reason is that something is wrong with the gathering or the gathered; it was not in HIS NATURE. There may be unforgiveness, hatred, bitterness, malice, strife, guile, cunning craftiness, and such things that are contrary to the NATURE of Christ. It is like having flies in the ointment. Clean hands and a pure heart is that acceptable offering before God. Remember, God looks at the inner being. He sees light or darkness. Forgiveness and cleansing through the atonement sanctifies the vessel, making way for the greatest blessings.

God cannot bless while the contrary nature is encouraged in the soul. All the sacrifices and necessary preparations were made in the Outer Court so the services of the tabernacle would not be hindered in any way, hence the needs of the people were met. When Israel made the perfect sacrifice, God was pleased and they were blessed to the fullest. Their enemies could not stand before them; they had complete victory in all areas. When they transgressed, they fell prey to their enemies, even to the bondage of slavery.

The fruits of the flesh (anger, wrath, malice, strife, envy, bitterness, etc.) are all works of the evil one, works of darkness – where Satan presides as lord. When we therefore entertain these, we fall into the realm of darkness where Satan has power over us. We only have power in Christ; we have no power in darkness.

“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with ALL malice: And be ye Kind one to another, TENDERHEARTED, FORGIVING one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath FORGIVEN YOU.” Ephesians 4:31-32.

There should be no place given to the devil, or he will take advantage of every opportunity to rob and destroy.

PRAISE GOD. WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS, because God made available to us, His People, every necessary piece of armament to insure us the victory.

His active presence can be experienced in the fullness of His revealed character. His NAME is linked with His righteousness, faithfulness, holiness, goodness, mercy, love, truth, etc. – that is His NAME. Since the assembling of believers forms the basis for spiritual unity with Christ, for participation of His bounties and viewing of His Sovereignty, believers must, through the divine power, rise from the lower realm (which is the opposite and contrary nature) to partake of that DIVINE NATURE.

God will not share His Glory. There must be a rejecting of one nature in order to receive the other nature. Self takes the place of Christ in the soul – the more self is rejected and cast out, the more of Christ we can have.

Scripture reading: Matthew 21:22

The Word that I am seeing before me is the church functioning in its place. However, there is a bad habit among us: Everybody wants to do something else besides what God wants us to do.

I never forgot the musician, the pianist in Gatlinburg that came to me when I was out there preaching. He said to me, “What can I do? What can I do to really please God?” I said, “Son, fast tomorrow, and come into the meeting. Pray to God that He would use you as a musician.” I had never seen anything like that. The young man was so energetic and wanted to see God use him. He got in the church building as the first one. It was about six o’clock in the evening and the meeting was supposed to start at seven. He got in, jumped on that piano, and began to play; he just played from his soul. People came into the door, but they didn’t go to their seats. Nobody passed that door. They came and fell at the altar. The service started with an altar call. Everybody was weeping. The man was just playing; nobody was even singing!

You must believe in divine power. I see some of us don’t believe in power. You see, God taught me how to believe in power, how to pray before coming to service. My wife, Mavis, and I prayed for six souls one night and we came in to the church building and it was empty. Nobody came that night! But we started to sing and to praise God and somebody came in and went to the altar. Another one came in – six people came in to the altar and were saved that night. Divine power! DIVINE POWER! Begin to use this power, brethren. Begin to use this power! God has anointed some of you to pray; you have the greatest power in the church, and nobody notices you. You have the power to pray and ask God to move according to your prayer.

I remember when I used to love to see people get knocked down on the floor. You know, we go through all these stages. I was a young man. The first day that God called me, I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, went into a Holy Quietness Church, and the whole church fell down flat on the floor and couldn’t get up. After that, I kind of felt that everywhere I went, people must fall down on the floor. You know, when you touch the person and the person doesn’t fall down, you have the tendency to give him a little “help,” (you push a bit). In fighting, there is a hold that you use in which you touch a person on his forehead. Anybody that you touch on his head like that has to go back and falls. I see them doing it in churches, putting their hands on the people, on their foreheads. It used to be Jujitsu in those days (note: Jujitsu is a Japanese martial art and a method of close combat). I would touch you on your forehead and you fell down. But you know, one day God came to me and said, “What do you really want? Do you want to humble the people so they fall down? Or do you want to bless them?” I said, “I want to bless them.” From that day on, rarely anybody fell down in my service because I wanted to bless them. I don’t especially want them to fall down. That doesn’t gratify me anymore. I just want to BLESS them. And that should be the desire of all of us – to bless the people of God.
