The Milk of the Holy Spirit

Psalms 40.7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

Romans 8.11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

The milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 0

How To Enter In

Have you ever wondered how to enter into the kingdom of God? A simple question worthy of an answer. Doesn’t just about every one want to go to heaven or think that they already qualify? Just go to church one day and see if all the people qualify, you can judge them by their fruits. Jesus made it clear that one needs to be born again to enter into the kingdom of God – John the 3rd chapter. Not only did Jesus make it clear that you need to be born again but He also gives a list of those individuals that will be excluded. Galatians 5.13-21 read and see or read and weep. (they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.) Galatians 5.22-26 is a list of the items that will be found in the kingdom of God – love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.   Pick your fruits, or your fruits will pick you.

1.Love.

II Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

John 14.21 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, and will manifest myself to him.

I Corinthians 8:3 But if any man love God, the same is known of him.

John 14.23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

I Corinthians 2.9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

Psalms 145:20; Proverbs 1:22; Proverbs 4:6; Proverbs 8:17; Proverbs 8:21; Proverbs 8:36; Proverbs 9:8; Proverbs 10:12; Proverbs 27:5; Ecclesiastes 3:8; Ecclesiastes 9:1; Matthew 5:44; Matthew 6:24;   Matthew 19:19; Matthew 22:37; John 5:42; John 13:34; John 13:35;            John 14:15; Romans 8:35; II Corinthians 6:6; Ephesians 1:4; Ephesians 2:4; Ephesians 3:17; Ephesians 3:19; Ephesians 5:25; Colossians 2:2; I Thessalonians 5:8; I Timothy 6:11;                      II Timothy 1:7; Titus 3:4; Hebrews 13:1 James 2:8; I Peter 1:22; I John 2:5; I John 2:15;                  I John 3:11; I John 3:18; I John 4:8; Mark 12.30-31; John 14.15; John 15.12; Romans 5.5; Romans 8.28; Romans 13.8; I Corinthians 8.3; Revelation 3.19.

Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

 

John 16.21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

Psalms 32:11; Psalms 48:2; Psalms 51:12; Psalms 67:4; Psalms 132:9; Proverbs 15:21;    Proverbs 23:24; Matthew 2:10; Luke 6:23; John 15:11; John 16:20; John 16:21-24; John 17:13;  II Corinthians 1:24; II Corinthians 8:2; I Thessalonians 1:6; I Thessalonians 2:19; Hebrews 12:2; Hebrews 13:17; I Peter 4:13; I John 1:4; III John 1:4; Jude 1:24.

  1. Peace.

Luke 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and [in] the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

 

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Psalms 28:3; Psalms 34:14; Psalms 37:11; Psalms 37:37; Psalms 85:8; Mark 4:39; Mark 9:50; Mark 10:48; Luke 2:14; Luke 12:51; John 20:19; Romans 5:1; Romans 8:6; I Corinthians 1:3; Ephesians 2:14; Ephesians 6:15; Philippians 4:9; I Thessalonians 5:23; II Peter 3:14; Jude 1:2.

  1. Longsuffering.

I Timothy 1:16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

II Peter 3:15 And account [that] the longsuffering of our Lord [is] salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

Exodus 34:6; Numbers 14:18; Psalms 86:15; Romans 2:4; II Corinthians 6:6; Ephesians 4:2;         Colossians 1:11; II Timothy 3:10; II Timothy 4:2; I Peter 3:20; II Peter 3:9.

  1. Gentleness. 

II Samuel 22:36 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great.

 

Psalms 18:35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.
II Corinthians 10:1; Galatians 5:22.

  1. Goodness.

Romans 2:4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

 

Proverbs 20:6 Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?

Exodus 33:19; Exodus 34:6; Psalms 23:6; Psalms 25:7; Psalms 27:13; Psalms 33:5; Psalms 145:7; Romans 15:14; Ephesians 5:9; II Thessalonians 1:11.

  1. Faith.

Matthew 9:2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

Jude 1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
II Corinthians 1:24; Habakkuk 2:4; Matthew 8:10; Matthew 8:26; Matthew 9:22; Matthew 9:29; Matthew 14:31; Matthew 15:28; Matthew 16:8; Matthew 21:21; Matthew 23:23;              Hebrews 11:1; James 1:3; James 1:6; James 2:1; James 2:5; James 2:14; James 2:17; James 2:18;        James 2:20; James 2:22; James 2:24; James 2:26; James 5:15.

  1. Meekness.

I Timothy 6:11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

James 3:13 Who [is] a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

Zephaniah 2:3; II Corinthians 10:1; Galatians 6:1; II Timothy 2:25; James 1:21; I Peter 3:15.

  1. Temperance

II Peter 1.5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Acts 24.22-25 And when Felix heard these things, having more perfect knowledge of that way, he deferred them, and said, When Lysias the chief captain shall come down, I will know the uttermost of your matter.23 And he commanded a centurion to keep Paul, and to let him have liberty, and that he should forbid none of his acquaintance to minister or come unto him.24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

While reading Galatians 5.22 & 23 we must understand that these are the attributes that Jesus exemplified while he walked the earth, as he proclaimed his ministry. All are to take up their cross (the burden that is the Lords) and follow after the ways of Jesus seeking guidance in spirit and in truth, transforming their life from the natural to relying on the spiritual FOCUSSING on love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance until they are able to walk in newness of life.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 1
Water Baptism

I Peter 3:21 The like figure whereunto [even] baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

Matthew 3:11
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and [with] fire:

Mark 1:4; Luke 3:3; Acts 19:4; Romans 6:4; Ephesians 4:5; Colossians 2:12; Matthew 3:16;                 Mark 1:8; Mark 1:9; Mark 16:16; Luke 12:50; Acts 1:5; Acts 2:38; Acts 8:16; Acts 8:36; Acts 8:38;         Acts 10:47; Acts 10:48; Acts 11:16; Acts 19:3; Acts 19:4; Acts 19:5; Acts 22:16; Romans 6:3;                         I Corinthians 10:2; I Corinthians 12:13; I Corinthians 15:29; Galatians 3:27.

The need to submit to being water baptized must come from a desire to follow Jesus into death by dying out to the old nature the old way of doing things in one’s life. Rising to the occasion of following Him in obedience in a new way of living, living life as though Jesus were watching your every move. Remember it is possible to live a godly life read Luke 1.5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. 6. And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. It is possible to please God we just have to put forth an effort.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 2
Baptism of Repentance

Acts 19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

II Timothy 2:24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

 

Mark 1:4; Luke 3:3; Luke 5:32; Acts 13:24.

The question that everyone must ask is… at who’s will do I follow, that of God or of the world? If you weren’t fully convinced by your answer then you may need to seek repentance to the acknowledging of the truth. Only the truth in God will set you free.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 3
Baptism of the Holy Ghost

Acts 4:1-31

Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

Acts 19:6 And when Paul had laid [his] hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

Acts 19:4; Ephesians 4:5; Colossians 2:12; Matthew 3:11; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:8; Mark 3:29;         Luke 1:15; Luke 1:67; Luke 2:25; Luke 2:26; Luke 3:16; Luke 4:1; Luke 12:12; John 14:26;      John 20:22; Acts 2:38; Acts 7:55; Romans 15:16; I Corinthians 2:13; Titus 3:5; Hebrews 3:7;          I Peter 1:12.

To get involved in the study of the Holy Ghost with two scriptures is like taking two steps and thinking you walked around the world. To be brief the Holy Ghost will come with power Acts 10.38 and the Holy Ghost will come upon you Acts 19.6 if these have not happened than you may need to seek the Holy Ghost more earnestly.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chap 4
Man of sin read Genesis the 3rd chapter

The fruit from the Tree of knowledge of good and evil and the fruit from the tree of life is simple and clear. The fruit that is from the tree of knowledge of good and evil is the nature of the world or sin and the fruit that is from the tree of life is the Nature of Jesus or life. Pick the fruit that you want to represent your life as you stand before God.

Genesis 3.15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

thy seed and her seed… again thy seed represents the tree of knowledge of good and evil and her seed represents the pure line of the Messiah, that of Jesus the one born with no sin. Jesus in all the time that he lived as a man on earth never once fed from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Jesus only fed from the tree of life.

 

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 5

Gift of God

Ephesians 2:1-10 (8) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:

John 4:4-14 (10) Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

Ecclesiastes 3:13; Matthew 5:23; Matthew 5:24; Acts 2:38; Acts 10:45; Romans 1:11;                       Romans 5:15-18; Romans 6:23; I Corinthians 7:7; I Corinthians 13:2; II Corinthians 9:15; Ephesians 3:7; Ephesians 4:7; Philippians 4:17; I Timothy 4:14; II Timothy 1:6; Hebrews 6:4; James 1:17; I Peter 4:10.

Created unto Christ Jesus unto good works, don’t be fooled once an individual becomes a new creature in Christ Jesus we are to perform good works that magnify the Nature of Jesus. Works follow salvation and salvation follows after Jesus all the days of salvation.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 6

Pray in the spirit

Ephesians (6:1-20) (18) Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Romans 8:26-28 (26) Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Matthew 26:41; Mark 14:38; I Corinthians 14:14; I Corinthians 14:15; I Thessalonians 5:23.

To pray in the Spirit is not a question it is a statement and that statement is made while in prayer. It is a statement to the Spirit and the Spirit will make a statement back to you and it will be a message from Jesus. John 14: 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Go ahead and ask of God the petition of your heart.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 7

Hunger and thirst after righteousness

Matthew 5:1-12 (6) Blessed [are] they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

John 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Nehemiah 9:15; Isaiah 49:10; Revelation 7:16.

If you are hungry in the natural then you need to be food to be filled. If you are hungry in the spirit than you need the Spirit to be filled. Seek God and seek God until you find Him. Remember God is always near his children. The word of God is near to all, Deuteronomy 30:14.
The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 8

Seek yea first the kingdom of God and all His righteousness

Matthew 6:33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

James 2:5
Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?

Mark 1:15; Mark 4:30; Mark 9:1; Mark 10:14-15; Mark 10:23-25; Mark 14:25; Mark 15:43; Luke 4:43; Luke 6:20; Luke 8:1; Luke 9:62; Luke 12:31; Luke 16:16; Luke 17:21; Luke 18:16; Luke 18:17; Luke 22:16-18; John 3:3-5; Acts 1:3; Acts 8:12; Acts 14:22; Romans 14:17; I Corinthians 4:20; I Thessalonians 2:12; II Thessalonians 1:5; Hebrews 12:28; Revelation 12:10.

Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, James would not have made this statement if it had not been true. Seek out your calling in God and find richness in faith. Remember when you feel alone Jesus is close by.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 9 (by G.O. Baker)

Manners

As soon as a baby is born it is cleaned up and put on the Mother’s milk. The milk is the beginning food to sustain the child until the teeth are grown for the meat of the word. The apostle rebuked some and said they needed to be put back on the milk.

The Bible of nature explains the matter as milk is manners. Manners are the first thing the child learns and discipline to perfection for future survival. Now transfer over into Spiritual manners in what God requires of all people. The Bible is full of God manners to be taught. Matthew the 5th chapter and the 13th chapter of 1st Corinthians: See how many more you can dig out. Teach them to show respect according to office and age this is pleasing to God and in the future God will talk to you and grant your request.

Because we lack in manners, many sorrows and hurtful matters enter into our lives and we continual to suffer and wonder why God will not come to our rescue.

Milk Beginning Scriptures

Matthew 5:1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, 3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. 13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Matthew 6:1-16

Matthew Chapter 9

If you can’t drink these milk scriptures and you are sincere: You need to be filled or regenerated with the spirit of truth. (Holy Ghost) Then you will be ready to drink of the milk of the word and begin to grow in God! The decision is yours.

Proverbs 1:22-33

Only those that are filled with the Spirit (Holy Ghost) which is the Spirit of Truth, will be able to digest the milk. They are newborn babes.

God does not hear sinners: to know what we are to do it God’s way and not do it, is sin. After you are perfect in milk manners; God will answer you. Wouldn’t you do the same for your Children?

Milk chapter 10

Saved and salvation vs not able to be healed

Luke 9:1 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.

Luke 9:11 And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.

I John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Mark 6:1 And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.2 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.4 But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.5 And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.6 And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

Luke 8.43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.

Mark 9:14 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.15 And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.16 And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

Psalms 62:8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

Lamentations 2:19 Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watches pour out thine heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up thy hands toward him for the life of thy young children, that faint for hunger in the top of every street.

James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

This chapters theme “Saved and salvation vs not able to be healed” is concluded in this manner; to be saved is to rest in the bosom of Jesus just as Lazarus rested in the bosom of Abraham in the story the Rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31). The rich man had no need to be saved because he was safe and comfortable in all his worldly positions whereas Lazarus needed daily to be saved as he had no worldly covering – only faith. If your life has no need for God as the rich man’s did you may be in danger of being saved in the comforts of the world and not able to be saved by the grace of Jesus until you are able to be healed from your worldly comforts.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 11

Death of your high priest.

Numbers 35:9-13

Numbers 35:24-28

Hebrews 5:1-10

Hebrews 6.13-20

Hebrews 7:1-28

In conclusion a city of refuge is a safe haven from an avenger of blood until the death of the high priest. Your high priest is Jesus after the order of Melchisedec not Aaron or the law, a priest of a perfect nature undefiled and perfect in nature and blood. Is Jesus is your High Priest and your city of refuge? If so take refuge in him entering into his wrest as He has over came death.

 

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 12

Am I set in stone to live and rein with Christ?

1-do you believe in God and -2- to what extent -3- has that original belief ever grown?

Revelation 22.1-7

Revelation 22.6-20

Ephesians 1.1-12

Genesis 1.26-27

Genesis 3.22-24

Mark 4.1-20

In conclusion in the above scriptures Jesus has given us many examples of being in His will, it remains up to each person to put God first. To be set in stone and to live and rein with Christ each individual must live in the will of God – not in the next life (heaven) but in this life (earth). For example seek all things that are a part of your life and make a list. Find something on that list that you are sure is NOT in the will of God – than give it up for a week and see if you want to go back to it. With that one sin out of the way you are now on the right path. Continue in this method until you have exhausted all attributes in your life that do not represent Jesus in a good light.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 13

Enter in and take the low seat of the house

Luke 14.7 And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,8 When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;9 And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Proverbs 25: 6 Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men: 7. For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.

Proverbs 29.23; Luke 18.9-14; I Peter 5.5

Pride and humility are an example of the two natures that man has to deal with moment by moment of everyday life. The humble represent the Nature of Jesus whereas the prideful represents the worldly nature. A man must become humble or else his pride will bring him down. Once humbled everyone is able to work their way back to a prominent position, however to do this in the Spirit and in the Nature of Jesus one must seek guidance of the Holy Spirit. Daily involvement in prayer and devotional studies of God’s word is key to overcoming pride.

The Milk Chapter 14

The prince and power of the air: Satins kingdom on earth.  Let it be known that he, Satin the devil has the power and authority to give you whatever it is that he temps’s you with.
Ephesians 6.10-18
Matthew 4:1-11
Genesis 3:4-6 & 3:22
Daniel 10:10-14

Ephesians 6.10-18 Without the whole armor of God we are unable to stand against the ways of the devil. It is clearly stated in the scriptures that we fight not against flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness. We are warned to take the whole armor of God to be able to stand against spiritual wickedness. The parts of the whole armor of God are truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation and the word of God working together in prayer and supplication in the spirit.

Matthew 4:1-11 In this passage we see the devil tempting Jesus with His (that is Jesus’ own words). However Jesus makes it clear that the devil has no authority to use the word of God against Him. Be prepared as the devil will tempt all of us with the very words found in scripture by adding or taking away from the original meaning leaving you with words void of the essence of the spirit of God. Again in the passage Jesus makes reffrence to the fact that the God of the devil is God and that is the only person that is to be worshiped. Remember that all these temptations came upon Jesus in a time when he had been fasting and was weak in the flesh but strong in the spirit. This tempting was sponsored by the Holy Spirit.

Genesis 3:4-6 & 3:22 Again Satin tells a lie that is contraire to the word of God in Genesis 2:16-17. The temptation in chapter 3 is twofold as it is a direct contradiction of the word that God spoke in Genesis 2:16 in that God said “thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” The twofold nature of the   temptation is that Satin spoke to the woman saying, “Ye shall not surely die:” and enticing her to look at the tree. For the most part we can not be tempted by something if we do not look at it or listen to. The woman’s weakness occurred at the point when she looked at the tree. The first mistake was when she listened to a voice of one other than God. The seed of the serpent represents the tree of knowledge of good and evil (the worldly nature) whereas the seed of the woman represents the tree of life or (the Nature of Jesus). Verse 3.15 is the first mention in the bible of man’s involvement in the two natures. Pre Genesis chapter 3 man was involved in receiving only from God post Genesis chapter 3 man is involved in pressing into receiving directly from God through the Holy Ghost. If man chooses not to press into the kingdom of God he will by default receive from the nature of the devil, the sin nature, the seed of the serpent, the tree of knowledge of good and evil and so on. As we read Genesis 3:22 we find that there was a conversation in the heavens that took place.   To know good and evil is not a representation of two natures rather it is a representation of one nature. To know good and evil is the nature fueled by the seed of the serpent and it is the very reason that the man was expelled from the garden because God will not allow any creature that He created weather man or beast to receive from the tree of life (the Nature of Jesus) in the mingled state. Man is now charged with breaking up the ground and sowing the seed of the Holy Ghost. See’ Behold, there went out a Sower to Sow’ in this article.

Daniel 10:10-14 The prince of the kingdom of Persia resisted the servant of the Lord sent to Daniel for twenty one days, the kings of Persia did not want Daniel to receive the message. Are there messages stored up in Heaven waiting for your persistence and perseverance? Others are waiting on your unseen answers, press into the kingdom of God with all your heart.

The Milk Chapter 15

Man was created in the image and in the likeness of God: in righteousness and true holiness.
Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Ephesians 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Man was created in the perfect image and likeness of the creator. The pattern used to make mankind was that perfect Nature of Jesus. We were made in His likeness without spot or blemish. A missing element from the Genesis account above that is found in the Ephesians account – “which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” Now what needs to happen is we need to see the Genesis account and the Ephesians account merged together… Genesis 1:26 & Ephesians 4:24 Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. The reason that these two scriptures need to be combined is that in the Genesis account there was only righteousness and holiness – this was the essences of the nature of man – righteousness and holiness is the very nature of God. The nature of man was the express image of the nature of God. When we read the Ephesians account of holiness we find that Paul makes reference to true holiness, this is no accident, the original created man was created in true holiness, and however Paul makes true holiness a clear point. There is holiness in the fallen state of man that follows the after the likeness of the world (Satins kingdom). There is true holiness that is the express image and likeness of the creator Him self – Jesus. Check your holiness is it the express image of God or is it after the likeness of the world.

Four Periods

0 formless and void; 1 no sin; 2 sin; 3 sin reveled; 4 sin covered; 1 restored to no sin.

Now use the four periods and use the man and the earth to follow the summary below.

  1. Man and earth formless and void (man – Ephesians 1.4; earth – Genesis 1.2)
  2. The Spirit of God moves and creation takes place (man – Genesis 1.26; earth – Genesis 1.1) the perfect state.
  3. The fallen state takes place and the man is removed from the garden (man & earth –   Genesis 3.24) and placed in the corrupt world.
  4. An understanding of the two natures is needed to die out to sin (man – Galatians 3.13; earth -Revelation 22.3 – no more curse on the earth.
  5. Man needs a rebirth to be able to fellowship with God (man – John 3.5; earth           Zephaniah 1.18); appointed once to die. (Hebrews 9.27 & 1 Corinthians 15.31;                       earth Genesis 8.11 & Zephaniah 1.18)
  6. A new creation (man – I John 3.2; earth – Revelation 21.1)

In conclusion: #0 (formless and void) is neither in the fallen state nor is it in the perfect state of the original creation. When God entered into #1 (no sin) and created man from the earth in the perfect likeness and image of Himself, there was no corruption or sin, also there was no need for repentance or baptism because man was created in the Nature of Jesus. Then the fallen state takes place #2 (sin). In this state man is no longer a single natured creature – he has now become a two natured creature. The dominant nature of man is now the sin nature or the worldly nature. This #2 (sin) is under the leadership of the devil and it is corruption. Corruption eats away until every part of the body is corrupted. The fallen state cannot overcome the fallen state in and of its own. A reveling needs to take place in one’s life that God needs to be the central guiding light to all issues and decisions. This is #3 (sin reveled) and understanding that every man is born with two natures – the first created by God is perfect in truth and righteousness whereas the other is deceitful and full of lies led by the devil in corruption. The only hope of receiving salvation is to understand the need to die out to the dominant nature of the world and let a new birth take place. This new birth is the born again state and it will deliver all into a covering of sin. More sin will be reveled this is #4 (sin covered). As more sin is reveled in one’s life the sorrow that the sin causes will lead to repentance in Godly sorrow. This is followed by growth and maturity in God as reveled to each person as inspiration. The heading of the paragraph is the “Four Periods” – this next section is of great importance to understand. After #4 (sin covered) a person led of God in the Nature of Jesus will enter back into the original created state #1 (restored to no sin). This state of existence for most people will not occur until after physical death but as we have read in the scriptures there will be no sin in Gods kingdom. The redemption process is just that, a process of overcoming the nature of the world – being born again – allowing redemption to occur – allowing every one that calls upon the name of the Lord to be restored and presented before the Father without spot or blemish just as Jesus promised. The part that will sting is the removal of all the spots and blemishes. For some this may take a while – don’t be afraid to lean on the faith that Jesus has in you as your faith may not be strong enough yet. Perseverance in pressing in to God’s restoration process is to be encouraged for all to participate in. Further understanding is needed for restoration to occur and be completed. Your time on earth is your time of restoration, do not be fooled and think that this process will be quick and easy as some may try to get you to say a few quick words and tell you that you are saved. Do not be fooled by this, all that are called by the Father will go through the redemption process. The sinner’s prayer does not change a life only inspiration and filling of the Holy Ghost can change a life of sin and death to a life of God.

All men are born into the rejected state of life.

Romans 3:21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22. Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 23. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24. Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25. Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26. To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

Galatians 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.

Luke 16:16; Hebrews 7:11-12; Hebrews 7:19; Hebrews 7:19; Hebrews 7:28;

It must be made clear to all that the only way to overcome the sin of the world is through the righteousness of Jesus. We must overcome sin, not by using our righteousness – self righteousness – but by the righteousness that is in Jesus.

The Two Natures – the worldly nature and the Nature of Jesus

We must understand that we were born into this world with two natures. The first and the original, that is the one that we were created with is the Tree of Life (Nature of Jesus). The other nature the one that we were born with is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (the worldly nature). Of these two natures the dominate nature is the worldly nature. The Nature of Jesus (as it should be referred to) is that of the Spirit, Isaiah 11.2. It is very needful for all men to understand that every person that is born on this earth is born with the nature of God that indwelling spirit and the nature of the world that contains worldly knowledge and worldly desires, whereas the nature of God the (Nature of Jesus) contains the desires of the Spirit or the heavenly things. There is further need to understand the worldly nature. You were born with this nature and it is your dominate nature, it will not always guide you the wrong way but it will never direct you to the opposite nature that of the Nature of Jesus because this would be contrary to its wants and desires. It is up to each individual to discover that they were born and created with a better and superior nature that very Nature found in God Himself – the Nature of Jesus. Today there is a teaching that a person needs to accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior, this teaching has roots grounded in truth with a twist of deception added to mingle the intended thought of Jesus Himself. The thought that Jesus has for the sinner’s prayer is simply this…

HOW CAN YOU THINK THAT YOU CAN ASK ME TO COME INTO YOUR HEART AND SAVE YOU WHEN YOU WERE BORN AND CREATED WITH ME ALREADY IN YOUR HEART? I CREATED YOU IN THE PERFECT STATE. YOUR NATURE WAS MY NATURE. YOU TURNED AWAY AND FOLLOWED AFTER ANOTHER AND THIS OTHER NATURE BECAME YOUR DOMONATE NATURE. I JESUS, HAVE BECOME SECOND IN THE LIVES OF MAN. AS YOU PRESS INTO MY NATURE – THE NATURE OF JESUS- THE WORLDLY NATURE CAN NOT FOLLOW AND IT DIES OUT. YOU PASS JUDGEMENT ON THE NATURE OF THE WORLD BY PRESSING INTO THE NATURE OF JESUS AND SEEKING AFTER THE WILL OF GOD. THE PRAYER “JESUS COME INTO MY HEART AND SAVE ME”, IS NOT EXCEPTABLE IN THE EYES OF GOD BECAUSE YOU WERE BORN WITH ME, JESUS ALREADY IN YOUR HEART, IT IS I JESUS THAT MAKES THE PRAYER – MY CHILD PRESS INTO MY NATURE AND SEEK MY WAYS AND I WILL WALK WITH YOU THEN YOU WILL KNOW TRUITH AND FOLLOW ME IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUITH. IT IS THIS SPIRIT AND TRUITH THAT WILL KILL OUT THE WORLDLY NATURE. IT IS I THAT PRAY FOR YOU TO ENTER UNTO ME AND I SEEK YOU DAILY, YOU WILL FIND ME ALREADY IN YOUR HEART. OPEN UP TO THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT I HAVE FOR YOU AND YOU WILL NO LONGER DESIRE THE WORLDLY NATURE. SEEK MY WAYS FOR THEY ARE GOOD. I AM THE TREE OF LIFE. JESUS.

 

The natural man post Genesis the 3rd chapter

Behold, there went out a Sower to Sow

The Apostles and the Parable of the Sower

The Way Side Matthew 13.4

Stony Places Matthew 13.5

The Thorns Matthew 13.7

The Good Ground Matthew 13.8

Matthew 13. 1 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

The way side represents Judas: Matthew 10.4; Matthew 26.47-49; Matthew 27.1-10; Luke 22.47-48.

The stony places represent Peter: Matthew 26.33-35; Matthew 26.69-75.

The thorns represent Thomas: John 20.24-29.

The good ground represents John: John 19.25-27.

As we have seen the way side, the stony places and the thorns all need to be removed out of one’s life for the seed of the Holy Spirit to take root and grow so that the fruits some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty can come to pass. Check your life and ask God what needs to go. Only the good ground produces fruit to life with God.

Matthew 13.10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

In conclusion: the phrase “I will confess with my mouth” Romans 10.9 (not in front of a church as on a Sunday morning after “just getting saved”) but every day. For example when an old time sailor would slip and say one of his curse words in front of his mother it was done because that language was a part of his nature. In the same regards one should expect to slip every now and then by saying the name of Jesus. This would be a better measuring rod than asking yourself when was the last time that I read my bible. Take for example; today I was talking to my friend and all the sudden I just started talking about the Holy Spirit. That is confessing the name of Jesus with your mouth and heart. (Revelation 3.8)

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 16

A closer walk with God

I Peter 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

 

Jeremiah chapter 35: 1 The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying,2 Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them into the house of the LORD, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink.3 Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites;4 And I brought them into the house of the LORD, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was by the chamber of the princes, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the door:5 And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said unto them, Drink ye wine.6 But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons for ever:7 Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may live many days in the land where ye be strangers.8 Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all that he hath charged us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters;9 Nor to build houses for us to dwell in: neither have we vineyard, nor field, nor seed:10 But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us.11 But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came up into the land, that we said, Come, and let us go to Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians: so we dwell at Jerusalem.

12 Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,13 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive instruction to hearken to my words? saith the LORD.14 The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but obey their father’s commandment: notwithstanding I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye hearkened not unto me.15 I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.16 Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the commandment of their father, which he commanded them; but this people hath not hearkened unto me:17 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them: because I have spoken unto them, but they have not heard; and I have called unto them, but they have not answered.18 And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according unto all that he hath commanded you:19 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for ever.
James 2:14-26; John 13:21-25; John 21:20; II Chronicles 20:1-7.

Jesus said for us to be holy because he was holy and with that said it must also be said that Jesus is our great example, as we can do all things through our great example Christ Jesus. He is the rewarded of those who diligently seek him. Let’s start the process today and seek truth in Jesus so that his rewards may follow.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 17
Life for Adam could have been different had he sought an answer from God in the 3rd chapter of Genesis

I Timothy 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

 

Matthew 4:1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

Matthew 17: 1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
Joshua 9:1-27 deceived by the Gibeonites; Acts 7:54-60 & Acts 22:17-21 Paul deceived into thinking it was righteous for Steven to be stoned; Isaiah 11:2 Seek counsel In the Lord through the spirit of counsel; Exodus 17:5-7 & Numbers 20:7-13 Moses – speak/smite the rock; Genesis 4:1-15 Cain kills Able.

While Peter was walking on the water and then sinking into the world this is yet another example of taking your eyes off Jesus. Matthew 14:28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. Matthew 7:13-14 The two ways, the way that is broad and leads to destruction and the way that is narrow that leads to a life with Jesus – follow that path that has been set before you – Jesus is our example follow after Him – He took the narrow way, which leads to life!

Saul the man of the flesh -earthy-

Acts 8.1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.3 As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.

Acts 26:12 Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests,13 At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Paul man of God-spirit-

Acts 9:1 And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,2 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.7 And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus.9 And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.

Acts 9:10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.11 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth,12 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem:14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake.17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.19 And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus.

The conclusion of Saul the man of the flesh -earthy- & Paul man of God-spirit- is Saul was trying to destroy the church while living in the nature of the world and Paul was nurturing the church according to the Nature of Jesus. This is why it is important to realize where we are in God daily, are we working against the will of God or is the works that we are doing producing fruit and feeding the church of God.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 21

Death and Hell followed after.

Revelation 6:7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Psalms 116.3; Isaiah 28:18; Habakkuk 2:5; Revelation 1:18

In conclusion in Revelation 1:18 Jesus said –“ I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”

Death and Hell are the end result of a life lived without Jesus being the central focus and way of life and living. We all must press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (from Philippians 3.14).Further more – “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:15.

Life without God in your life equals eternal separation from Jesus and all that associate with God and the heavenly things. Remember eternity has been going on for quite a while now, so things were happening ages ago and were even documented as they happen – take Revelation 14:6 & 7 (6. And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, 7. Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.)

Death and Hell are names that are not written in the book of life therefore they are cast into the lake of fire. A second death is quite a concept, if you didn’t like it the first time will the second time be and better? Death and hell in the lake of fire – I don’t want to be associated with either of these individuals. (yes Death and Hell are names of individuals that are cast into the lake of fire- the lake of fire is an actual place) This is the choice that all people have that associate with those that will lead you to death and hell, of the which are destined to end up in the lake which burns forever

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 22

Finding the man that overcame death

Revelation 5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

John 11:24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

Acts 5:41; Revelation 20:6; Revelation 1:18; Revelation 3:4; Revelation 4:11; Revelation 5:12.

In conclusion we can see that Jesus has over came death and is the first of the risen.   Furthermore as the first of the risen from the worldly nature we can surmise that it is now possible for all that seek God to rise from the dead in the same fashion as did Jesus based on the following scripture… {John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.} So we must seek the kingdom of God and press into his nature; press into his name and press into his will. God is seeking you so seek him back. Do it today. Do it today before it is too late. Seek God – find God – serve God in his will. He is the resurrection and the life!

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 23

Judgment by works

Revelation 20.12 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

James 2: 14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

James 3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 24

Saved not of works but of faith

Habakkuk 2.4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

Romans 1.17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Galatians 3.11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

Hebrews 10.38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Hosea 14.9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

John 5.30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

Exodus 23.7 Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.

Deuteronomy 32.4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

Isaiah 26.7 The way of the just is uprightness: thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just. 8. Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O Lord, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul Is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee. 9. With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. 10. Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the Lord.

Galatians 2.16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

Revelation 15.1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. 2. And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 3. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. 4. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest. 5. And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: 6. And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. 7. And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. 8. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

Deuteronomy 31.30; (Deuteronomy 32.1-43 & Deuteronomy 32.44-52).

The conclusion of The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 23 is compiled together in The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 24.

In conclusion: we are saved by the faith of Jesus Christ not by the works of the law, Galatians 2.16. However it is also stated in James 2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

“Faith without works is dead”, it can then be summated that works is a vital and necessary element in administering faith. Works are very important in that when a person believes in God and they want and desire to serve Jesus they should by default do something that, if Jesus were to give them a report card their faith would be able to be measures by the works that they have done. If a person has all faith and does nothing, then the report on their faith will not be measurable as the works (the measuring portion of faith) would be blank or void. This will amount to void faith and void faith produces nothing because the works are absent. God will provide every one with enough opportunities each day to prove out their faith in the form of works. Then your report card will show fruits that will edify the kingdom of God. When works are manifested in the will of God then faith becomes evident. Take for example the following people of the bible (the passage from James-above)… Abraham and Rahab, if they would not have COMPLETED THEIR WORKS than the fruits that followed would not have occurred. The fruits that followed Abraham and Rahab were none other than the blood line of Jesus Christ our savior. The question is what will be the fruits of your obedience in performing your works in faith to the furtherance of the kingdom of God.

Matthew 7: 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

The book of life and Daniel 7:10; Revelation 20:12

Daniel 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Luke 1:32; Romans 2:12; Matthew 4:4; Luke 4:4; John 12:48

John 12:44 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Revelation 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

 

In conclusion these passages may seem to be advanced but if you think of them in simplistic terms it is a little easier to swallow. Take the Word of God for example we just read in John 12:48 that the words that Jesus has already spoken are the very words that will be judging us. Now apply that thought to Revelation 22:1, it talks about a river of water proceeding from the throne and the Lamb. This river that is coming from the throne is only coming from the throne because Jesus is setting on the throne. As He sits on the throne He is speaking. His words are judgment they will judge you now as you walk the earth in this life or they will judge you in the life after. Don’t think for a moment that Satin will judge you because he won’t. He is the accuser of the brethren Revelation 12:10. Paul makes the statement in         I Corinthians 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

Keep in mind as the water flows from the throne and the Lamb that a river proceeds from it… Revelation 1:15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

The only thing that Jesus will speak from his throne is going to be truth. As this truth flows from the throne and the Lamb it will flow on every one that has ever been born. Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. (Isaiah 45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.) Jesus said EVERY KNEE AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL CONFESS TO GOD. The point that I am making is the very word of truth that will flow over one person will be comforting and rewarding whereas the same word of truth will flow over another person whom never yielded there life to Christ – this individual will receive the same word of truth as burning coals of flaming fire and it will be tormenting. Jesus only speaks truth and His truth is judgment. Make your decision as to whether or not your name is going to be written in the book of life. Seek the judgment of Jesus now so that you can judge yourself according to I Corinthians 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 26

Who is the man of the flesh?

Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. 9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

I Timothy 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

II Corinthians 3:1-4; II Corinthians 3:12-18; Galatians 1:10-12; II Thessalonians 2:13.

In conclusion: We are bound up in the worldly nature (men of the flesh).  We must seek guidance from Jesus – first- hand knowledge. Paul makes this (first hand knowledge very clear in Galatians 1:10-12) as he states in {12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.} but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. We must all remember that the start of salvation is the redemption process. To enter into the redemption process we must understand that there is first a need to enter the redemption process then we must enter into the baptism of repentance. Again to discover “who is the man of the” flesh we must understand the story of Adam and Eve. They were the residents of the Garden of God or the Garden of Eden. As residents of the Garden of God all they had to do was to do the will of God. They chose to do their own will and received of a nature that was not of God nor was it of his nature – thus the worldly nature became the dominant nature of man. In a roundabout way if you are a man of the flesh you must die out to that nature. Once the nature of the flesh is dead than the Nature of Jesus will be born – this is also known as the born again state or being born again. In more simpler terms when Jesus was born he was born in the perfect state of creation that is no sin present – yes the truth is Jesus was not a sinner – he was perfect in all things – one important item to note is that Jesus was perfect in his geology that is his blood line. “To be saved sanctified and going to heaven” all one needs to do is to be born into this blood line, that perfect blood line, a son of God. Once born again – into the blood line of Jesus – Jesus will start to instruct all that seek Him by giving out daily bits of information on how to live a Godly life especially on how to act like Jesus. Take for example a sinner is born again on Sunday at any church USA. Monday morning something is going to happen that will seem like a problem but it will be Jesus instructing his new child on how to act like Jesus would. Remember we were created in the image and likeness of God, this means that in the image we look like God and in the likeness we act like God. The man of the flesh is any man that looks like God but does not act like God or does not act like God yet. Where are you, do you look like God and not act like God or do you look like God and act like God?

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 27 “O” Ye of Little Faith

Matthew 14:25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

Matthew 16:5 And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread.8 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

Matthew 6:28-30; Matthew 8:23-27.

In conclusion: When the thought of the heart is of unbelief it will grow as leaven. Unbelief will grow with strength that is multiplied upon multiplying. Take a lie that you have told and how far that lie grew in size and in strength. Did not the lie grow in multiplying upon multiplying! How was the lie brought under subjection? With TRUTH, truth is the only force in nature that can stop a lie. Unbelief is brought under subjection through TRUTH. In truth there is no lie. The leaven of unbelief will continually grow until it can not contain itself and unravel with all the lies falling to the ground. Has that ever happened to you or someone that you know. Truth on the other hand gowns in wisdom and knowledge of the Holy One of Isreal.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 28 The Vessel

Acts 9:1 And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,2 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.7 And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus.9 And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.

   10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.11 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth,12 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem:14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:

II Corinthians 4:5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Hosea 8:8; II Timothy 2:19-21; I Peter 3:1-7; I Thessalonians 4:1-4.

In conclusion: Has God put on your heart to be a chosen vessel of the Holy Ghost and present the kingdom of God in wondrous ways to your fellow man being an example to all around you that the love of God is deep within your soul. We are a light unto the world, through us the darkness is pressed back and the knowledge that there is a God is illuminated through our actions and words. This Jesus that we speak of in our lives inside the church must be expressed in the world so that those that are not of God have a witness that there really are people that believe in God.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 29 The Image of God

I Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

II Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Genesis 1:26; Romans 1:19-23; Colossians 1:12-18.

In conclusion: This begs the question; who is the god of this world? Is it someone other than Jesus Christ? II Corinthians 4:4 is making that statement, you mean that Satan has the minds of them which believe not, check it out for yourself re-read the verse (II Corinthians 4:4) what do you get out of it? Remember man is the image and glory of God, as God put it in Genesis 1:26 Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. Did God create you in His image or not! Does your life magnify the glory of God or put him to an open shame? Is God ruling your life and have you given up your will and asked him to show you His?

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 30 The Call to Holiness

I Thessalonians 4:7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

I Thessalonians 4:1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.2 For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:6 That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.8 He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.

I Thessalonians 3:11 Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.12 And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:13 To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.

Luke 1:74-75; Acts 3:12; Romans 1:1-6; Romans 6:17-23; Ephesians 4:17-24; Hebrews 12:14.

In conclusion: The new man that is made in the likeness of God according to the standard of holiness. Jesus calls us to be holy because He knows that we are capable of obtaining to the calling in the first place. Don’t use the excuse that “I’m not perfect” that will only make your intentions expressly clear that you have no intention of turning your life over to holiness. That which is not holy is corrupt in the eyes of God; decide which side of the line you want to be on. Remember according to Jesus your are clean or filthy. All who read this need to check their righteousness to see if they are holy or unclean in the eyes of God.

 

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 31 The Call to Repent

Mark 1:14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Mark 6:7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;8 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:9 But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.10 And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.

Matthew 4:12-17; Isaiah 9:1-2; Matthew 9:13; Mark 2:13-17; Luke 5:32; Luke 15:1-7; Acts 2:38;         Acts 8:14-22; II Peter 3:9; Revelation 2:1-7; Revelation 3:19.

In conclusion: Jesus sent them forth two by two to bring the message of the gospel to the ears of the lost so that in hearing they would open up their minds to the thought of the Holy Spirit. Once their minds became open and they received the Holy Ghost that old nature began to die out. When the old nature the worldly nature dies out the Nature of Jesus will take over all aspects you your life and this is the borne again state of man, when the borne again state takes place it is said that a new creature is in place, this is an act of creation as this event takes place just as it did in the Genesis creation account. Genesis 1:1 And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (A man born of the spirit and the water will enter into the kingdom of God). Let all that are not yet borne again meditate on this subject until the peace of God begins to fill them from their center – amen.

 

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 32 The Call to be Baptized

Acts 10:42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Acts 8:14-17

Matthew 28:19

In conclusion: To Him gave all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. This is a big statement and it is one that you can cash in on and become a part of the kingdom of god with, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

In fact this chapter is the call to be baptized so why make such a statement about remission of sins?

Jesus makes it clear that all are to repent of their sins then believe on His name and then be baptized. Let’s take baptism to the extreme limits – Acts 19:1-4. Further to be baptized in the Name of Jesus is to understand that you are taking on that life that Jesus spoke of in the gospels. It must be further understood that Jesus desires all to do the will of the Father just as Jesus did it as an example for all to follow.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 33 The Veil is Rent

Matthew 27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

Exodus 34:28 And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.30 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.31 And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them.32 And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount Sinai.33 And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a vail on his face.34 But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he took the vail off, until he came out. And he came out, and spake unto the children of Israel that which he was commanded.35 And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.

Mark 15:33-41; Luke 23:44-49.

In conclusion: The key element that needs to be understood when we talk about the veil being rent is that we now have direct access to Jesus through the Holy Ghost. When Moses talked to God he was talking to God on behalf of the people – acting as their representative he would talk to God and relay to the people that which he was commanded. The people did not receive their information first hand as you and I now can as the veil has been rent or lifted, it has been removed giving all that want to speak to God direct access to the throne room. The only people that do not have access to God are the ones that do not try. If you haven’t tried lately this may be a good as any time to put your faith in the creator of the universe and start a personal friendship with Jesus Christ the living God that came to earth as a man and died on the cross and rose the third day for all mankind. This same Jesus is ready to give all who come to Him instructions on how to live a life that God designed for men to live. For instance – you be your own judge – are you living your life just as God had intended you to live or do you need daily guidance on decisions and choices. Turn it all over to Jesus and let Him be your guide.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 34 Baptize with Fire

I Corinthians 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

Luke 3:16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

I Peter 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

Matthew 3:7-12; Psalms 50:1-6; Psalms 104:1-9; I Peter 1:7; Revelation 1:14; Revelation 3:18.

In conclusion: When Jesus presents you before the Father without spot or blemish keep in mind that this is going to be a process that will cause you much pain and even grief (Ephesians 5:27) & (Revelation 3:5). The baptism of fire: the flesh nature (the nature of the world) cannot stand up to the pressure and will die out to the burning desires of the spirit. If you have a desire to know God (Jesus – Christ) earnestly beseech that the Holy Ghost baptize you with fire, that spiritual baptism that will burn the nature of the world right out of you. After the baptism PROCESS the renewed spirit man will be your dominate nature (Titus 3:5). This is contrary to the birthing of the natural man whom when born is dominated by the worldly nature and the things of the spirit are of the recessive nature. Not just a fire baptism but a baptism of fire coupled together with the power of the Holy Ghost, now that is what I call a spiritual cleansing. Peter reminds us that is in not to be thought of as strange that there will be fiery trials that will befall us, so just as a reminder if you are in the midst of a fiery trial it is normal and for your greater good. Ask God for strength getting through it. Remember it is the Holy Ghost and then fire as in the Holy Ghost is come into your life to baptize you with fire. Is your life on the path that you think is the best course for you? If not then you need the Holy Ghost to bring the redeeming fire.   1 Peter 1:7 declares the trial of your faith. Will your faith stand up to the cross examination? The white raiment comes after the trial of your faith – Revelation 3:18 also see Genesis 3:9.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 35 The Baser Works (lay not again)

Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.3 And this will we do, if God permit.4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.7 For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:

Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Acts 19:1-7; John 4:4-26; I Corinthians 3:1-7; I Peter 2:1-3.

In conclusion: Let us not lay the foundation again. Look at your house and ask how many foundations there are, one is the answer, just one. There are not many houses on the block that have two foundations. Furthermore there are not many people (home owners) that can afford to have more than one foundation for their house. And take this thought one step further… as you go about your daily walk – with or without God – often times you will find yourself laying a foundation for a relationship. This could be a friend or a business relationship. Once the foundation is laid and set there is no need to lay another foundation. Instead you will build on that foundation and strengthen the relationship. Back to the house – once the foundation is laid and the walls are up another foundation on the upper part of the house would weaken the structure and cause an eventual collapse. This is why Paul emphasized that we as Christians should not go back and add foundation upon the relationship with God. Instead we should be accruing a heart for God and walking in His way and doing his will. God is seeking you, all that you need to do is stop and let Him catch you.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 36 Baptized with the Holy Ghost

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Acts 2: 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Matthew 3:11; Mark 1:6-8; Luke 3:16; John 1:32-36; Acts 1:5; Acts 10:47-48; Acts 11:16-18

In conclusion: In Matthew 28:19 Jesus speaks whereas in Acts 2:38 Peter acts on the spoken word of God. Understand that John baptized with water and Jesus baptized with the Holy Ghost. The key difference is that Jesus is God and John was a man. Focus on this next statement. John was a man and he baptized other men in water. Men cannot save other men only God can do that. This makes the baptism of John a fulfillment of a command that Jesus gave – Acts 2:38. Then in John 6:68 Peter makes a statement to Jesus “thou hast the words of eternal life”. Jesus is the author of life. Back to the baptism of John – today 2013 a preacher baptizes a man off the street. The man says to the preacher that he received the Holy Ghost last week and wants to get water baptize. The preacher agrees to this and baptizes the man on the spot. The man comes out of the water with evidence of the spirit he looks the part of a Holy Ghost fill person. Another man walks up to the same preacher with the same request – however this time the man has no statement of receiving the Holy Ghost only states that he is a Christian and wants to be baptized. The preacher baptized the second man and as he comes out of the water nothing happens except the second man got wet. Compare both men: the first got cleaned on the outside and also on the inside; the second got cleaned on the outside only. The preacher must have felt that the second man really did not know God. The preacher’s name is John and the second man’s name was Simple. Now the first man that John baptized his name was Righteous. When Righteous was baptized Jesus gave him a new heart – Ezekiel 36:26. The problem of this scenario lies with Simple, you see Simple thinks that he is saved but he is not. God is still trying to get his attention but Simple is so comfortable in all of his ways that the voice of God and the power of the Holy Ghost are not making it from the heart of the man to the mind of the man. In other words the mind of the man is ruling over the things of God; the things of the spirit. To overcome this simple needs a broken heart and a contrite spirit Psalms 34:18 also see Isaiah 57:15 & Isaiah 66:2. When simple becomes broken he will die out to the nature of the world and become borne again, then Jesus will give him the name Righteous. Only Jesus can save, the baptism of man is just that, an act preformed by man. Jesus will give you the Holy Ghost and it is the power of the Holy Ghost that will sustain you through your walk (life) with God.

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 37 The Father’s Name

Ephesians 4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3. Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5. One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6. One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

John 14:25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. 26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Mark 12:28-34; John 6:35-40; John 10:22-38; John 17:20-23; Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 2:14-22;   John 7:14-18

In conclusion: John 17:11; I John 5:6-8: Jesus spoke highly of the Father’s name making the clear distinction that He is holy. Ephesians 4:5 says one Lord – one faith – one baptism – one God and Father and this Father is in all. Understand if the Holy Ghost is not a big part of your life then the name of the Father will not be all that important to you. Question yourself: is the name of the Father a big deal or not? If you answered something like this – “when I hear the name of the Father I think something like that name is the greatest name of all or when I hear the name of the Father I just want to get on my knees and worship”. Baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; the name of the Father is Jesus!

The Milk of the Holy Spirit Chapter 38 The Name Above All Names

Luke 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Zechariah 14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

Isaiah 12:4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.5 Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.6 Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.

Judges 13:15 And Manoah said unto the angel of the LORD, I pray thee, let us detain thee, until we shall have made ready a kid for thee.16 And the angel of the LORD said unto Manoah, Though thou detain me, I will not eat of thy bread: and if thou wilt offer a burnt offering, thou must offer it unto the LORD. For Manoah knew not that he was an angel of the LORD.17 And Manoah said unto the angel of the LORD, What is thy name, that when thy sayings come to pass we may do thee honour?18 And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Why askest thou thus after my name, seeing it is secret?19 So Manoah took a kid with a meat offering, and offered it upon a rock unto the LORD: and the angel did wondrously; and Manoah and his wife looked on.20 For it came to pass, when the flame went up toward heaven from off the altar, that the angel of the LORD ascended in the flame of the altar. And Manoah and his wife looked on it, and fell on their faces to the ground.21 But the angel of the LORD did no more appear to Manoah and to his wife. Then Manoah knew that he was an angel of the LORD.22 And Manoah said unto his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen God.23 But his wife said unto him, If the LORD were pleased to kill us, he would not have received a burnt offering and a meat offering at our hands, neither would he have shewed us all these things, nor would as at this time have told us such things as these.

Philippians 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

{Matthew 4:1-11, Joshua 24:14old testament reference}                                                                     Deuteronomy 6:13; Deuteronomy 10:20; Philippians 2:1-11; Genesis 3:14-15; Ruth 4:9-12; Rev 12:12-17; Luke 1:26-35; Nehemiah 9:5; Psalms 8:1-10; Psalms 138:2; Ephesians 1:15-23.

In conclusion: In order for a person to enter into the kingdom of the Lord they must bear His holy name.   In John 5:43 Jesus stated that He came in his fathers name – Johm 5:43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. – Note the statement “if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive” this is a firm warning that there is no other name that is excitable to God in his kingdom. The apostle Paul puts the gospel into perfect content in Galatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. – The name of Jesus is the Name that is above all names – use the name of Jesus ANY time that you are having difficulty with a spirit that is contrary to Jesus name. Everybody needs to understand that using the name of Jesus to remove a difficulty from their live may not always work. I must further emphasize that when calling on the name of Jesus doesn’t work or show any results it is a must to take the issue to the next level. Jesus stated in John 14:12 that if anyone asks in his Name he will do it,- John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. – The real question that needs to be asked is what does the Name of Jesus represent? The answer is being sanctified in the will of God will bring with it the promises of God – Hebrews 10:7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

Press into the nature of Jesus.
