BECOMING a FORCE OF GOOD: Good is an Action Word

Quote Posted on Updated on

Bread Day Ministries was established November 2010 with Reginald and Carolyn Boswell distributing bread products and Christian tracts to four Halfway houses, three non-profit organizations and to numerous individual families in Meridianville, Huntsville, and Toney areas of Madison County, AL.

The other day I saw a bumper sticker that read “I believe in Good.” I immediately thought that it was a typo which added an o. However, after further examination and thought, I knew I was reading right.  Good is best used as a verb, I thought; as an action, for example as applied when reading about the life of Jesus.  Jesus said. “there is none good but one, that is, God.” (Matt. 10:18).

God is good all time and all the time  God is good.”

As a harmonious symphony combines distinct parts to make a whole, blending in with God should be the goal of every believer.  God is the, I AM. Thus, people should merge with the force of good completing I AM mission statements. When people say negative things about you, never let the things said, deter your mission, but first examine to check the validity of their words.

Jesus went about doing good (Act 10:38).

I am sure people spoke negatively about his motives.  I suggest that the only reference point they could base their judgments were their own consciousness.  Jesus went about doing good.  Jesus was a revolutionary.  We should emulate Him by going about doing good also, and above all having faith in God!  Doing good in the realm of faith pleases God which is God’s plan for man and man’s ultimate goal.

When functioning in cooperation with the CEO of the Universe outer space.enews.buddhistdoor.comnothing shall be held back from any believer. The Heroes of Faith testify of this and the many who have overcome the world through merging with the purposes of God in their lifetime.

Made Good

Conversion from perversion is the ultimate goal of doing well when usefully applied to advance some wholesome purpose. Good is not a degree, but a state of being.  Contrarily, it is unwise to advance evil, but those that do must convert good to evil.  What side are you on?   To remain unchanged is man’s ultimate folly.  Degrees of perversion are not relative in the eyes of God; because, God consistently abides as good but reserves evil for judgment.

Man’s rate of exchange to become acceptable to God.

Time changes matter but does not pervert matter, wrong decisions pervert matter.  Matter later atrophies into states unrecognizable by man but separated by God (i.e. the soul).  The soul is separated by God and the decisions made in the body either perverts the soul or makes one well.  This makes God the Great Judge and mankind subject to either being unchanged or converted good. Since evil cannot become good, evil must be exchanged for good through substitution.  While living after a substitution is made evil must be forsaken and ignored unless it is perverted into evil by the substitute. Thusly, sin was exchanged for righteousness through the Blood of Christ and made available to all. This is orchestrated by the Hand of God who abides eternally good.

SIFTING

Aside Posted on Updated on


SIFTING: The process of separating or filtering the good from the bad, the desirable from the undesirable.


Wheat: clip art by Charley Franz
Wheat: clip art by Charley Franz

Scripture:

Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail”(Luke 22:31-32).

 

God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith

Romans 12:3c


 

Understanding the

Power Principle

 


 

Satan has power, but no Authority.

 

  1. Authority is regimented

 

1. To form into a regiment. (from Latin) regimentum, ruler

2. Place into systematic order; systematize, subject to uniformity

3. Rigid order Physical (temporal troops) spiritual eternal troops)

 


 

  • Power (1849) exousia: authority, delegated influence, jurisdiction,

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matthew 28:18).

 

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth,visible and invisible, whether they be thrones,or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him” (Colossians 1:16).

Thrones: (2231) hegemon: governor, (in time) official term, figurative place or province

Dominions (2963) kuriotes: governmental rulers, civil powers, rulers

Principalities (746) arche: chief (various applications) order, time place rank.

 

“Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases” (Luke 9:1).

__________________________________________________________________________________

OT account of sifting:

“Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?” (Job 1:9, read Job 1:6-12)

 

“And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?”

Acts 19:15

 

Does Satan know your name?

  1. Satan especially wants to disturb the move of God in the life of people. He wants to interfere with any type of godliness perpetrated by mankind.

 

  1. Because Adam sinned, those who abandon sin for a life with God are Satan’s targets.

 

  1. Satan notices those who God displays truth speakers, those examples of God’s contact with humanity.

 

  1. Satan has a severe hatred for humanity. Why is not important (not a concern for humanity), what is important for us is that Satan remains under your feet.

 

 

   “We need to recognize the devil had to get permission from God. Satan doesn’t have a free hand with the Saints”(page 343).

 

 PRINCIPAL:

Worship or Worry, God is still Sovereign.

  •  Worship

“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God” (Exodus 34:14).

“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” (Matthew 4:10).

 

  • Worry

Satan may enter your heart when your worried and fearful (as Satan entered Judas’ heart to betray Jesus (Matt 26:14; Mark 14:10; John 13:2:27).

Unbelief & Fear separates you from God eternally!


Those things which cannot be shaken may remain”

Competitive Setting                                                       (Heb 12:27b)

Jesus just revealed to his disciples that one of them is a traitor.

Satan entered Judas. Satan the deceiver entered Judas, afterwards the plan was in motion to deliver Jesus to the Jews. Judas lost F.O.C.U.S. Forever Occupied by Christ Undisturbed by Satan. He chose the Worry route instead of the Worship route.

 

God’s mission is your predetermined destiny of eternal life with the father. Satan’s mission is destruction and everlasting Hell fire and torment. God wants you to develop internally to combat the external. Satan wants you to focus on the external chaos and conform to it thereby tossing away your internal peace that God settles into your spirit.


 

SIFTING

 

Agitate What

Sin has no rhyme or reason, ask what not why! Ask what can I do to glorify God in this situation? (REB)

 

Filter Who

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” (Romans 8:35a)

 

Sift How

“Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord” (Ephesians 5:10).

 

Purify When

“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth”(John 17:17).

 

Grind Where

“Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled” (Luke 14:23).


 

Sovereign Principal:

Correction is part of the plan, God knows the end from the beginning (maze solving principle): and this present chastening is just for a season for your purification is as silver being purified seven times in a furnace of earth (Psalms 12:6).

 

God’s Methodology:

 

Chosen:

“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty” (I Corinthians 1:27).

 

For Correction:

My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: (6)For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. (7) If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? (8) But if ye be without chastisement,where of all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons” (Hebrew 12:5-8).

 

 

Trust in Him!
