Publisher’s Letter Dear Reader, Greetings to all of you! It is our utmost desire that you may grow in the knowledge, wisdom and revelation of the King who is in you. He is the Answer and Source of all. We oftentimes wait for something to happen in this world to give us hope of having ideal systems that will cater to the needs of everyone. We will miss the point if we keep looking from the outside and at what others are doing in order to live our lives in the abundance of peace and joy that this world can never give. Change begins from within the heart of a person that brings outflow into this world which becomes our behavior, culture and beliefs. The alignment of man’s heart with the Creator is the only guarantee that what overflows out of our hearts is His Will and reflects His Ways. Let us not focus on changing our system but on changing our hearts and minds before God. As we submit to this process of change in our spirit according to His Will and desire, then and only then we can experience the true change that every man is looking for. Change begins in submitting, yielding and obeying God’s laws and ways after emptying our hearts and minds of selfishness and personal will. The decision is yours. If you want to see change, begin within yourself and be the change because it takes one person at a time to make a brand new realm like it is in heaven. I pray increase of revelation in your life which will move you forward into growth and maturity. This will allow us to change into His image and likeness and display His Will for you and everyone in this world in which we live.

Greetings Kingdom Greetings to all of our supporters and partners around the globe! I bless you in the name of our Savior and Lord - Jesus Christ! My heart is filled with joy and excitement to see fruitful manifestations of God’s promises revealed in your daily lives. Well, we have rapidly made it past the mid-way point of the year 2013; this indicates we are on the final half of another year as time marches on.. Keeping in sync with the theme of this issue of TKC, “Change is Good” it is a great time to examine, evaluate and to allow a new mindset and transformation to take place as needed. When I meditate on the power of change and transformation, I am reminded of the story of Ruth and the ultimate choice she made to follow her mother-in-law Naomi, to a new place and culture that was unfamiliar to her world as a Moabite. Ruth replied, I will go wherever you go, live wherever you live; your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. Ruth 1:16 (NLT) This decision of change for Ruth, caused her not to suffocate in her past mistakes or unfavorable moments, but to embrace a new life that later promoted her to experience a “Boaz Moment” of Favor and Blessings. This ultimately led to the lineage of King David and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The ability to embrace a new mindset of change makes us teachable, empowering and effective, to ourselves, the work of the ministry, and to the lives around us. This also solidifies us to operate as “Change Agents” in the earth causing us to be synchronized and sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Change can sometimes be uneasy, but it helps to re-define, re-direct and perfect our strategy to live life on purpose. It is necessary for our spiritual growth and development. Remember that Our God is forever present with us in a changing world. He states, He will never leave, nor forsake us. With that assurance, allow His love to transform you and perfect His will in you, from the inside out. Now is the time to embrace your “Season of Change.” In His Service Patricia Banks Moore

The Message

CHANGE,

Not More of the

Some welcome change, but only if it will get them back to the SAME they once enjoyed. The CHANGE God is releasing in this hour will not be more of the SAME, and will actually knock down some old paradigms like a bowling ball hitting all the pins with one roll. We have seen degrees of change in church history such as reform, renewal, and revival. Often monuments or camps were formed around the SAME place where change initially happened, and they eventually have little impact on changing the world. Some will miss this next level of CHANGE because they are looking for the “good old days,” but God never repeats a former “same” to present CHANGE. Letting go of the old, allows vision of the new God has ahead.

SAME

God is the SAME yesterday, today and forever because He is the Alpha and Omega, but it is we who are CHANGING into His image from glory (revelation) to glory (manifestation). God forms a NEW THING in us that is not new to Him, but is a restoration to His original foundational blueprint, His constitution. The Kingdom of God is changing everything through a process, ever since Adam transgressed God’s Word. Basically there are four dimensions of this process of Kingdom change. 1. TRANSFORMATION. Metamorphosis, where the old drops off so the new is revealed and shaped. 2. TRANSITION. Repositioning; the process of cultivating an original design. 3. TRANSFER. Exchange from one place to another. 4. TRANSLATION. Vision and faith to live in a destination before actually arriving. The first manifestation of Kingdom change is transformation. Romans 12:2 says; “Be not CONFORMED (hardened in ignorance) to

this world (system) but be TRANSFORMED (strengthened through the process of change) by the renewing of your mind”. The word; “form” means the shape, structure or pattern of something, but it is also a process of “forming” (or changing). The New Testament Greek word for “form” is morphe where we get our term morph meaning to shift or change into. In this part of the change process, the old drops off so the new (or the original pattern) can be revealed.

of stature that prepares us for the next level of Kingdom advance. We are constantly in the repositioning process of moving forward.

❝ ...growth, cultivation and development of stature that prepares us for the next level of Kingdom advance.❞

Second in the process of change is transition. This is the growth, cultivation and development July - August - September 2013 -THY KINGDOM CARRIERS

The Message Continued from page 5

Third is transfer and it is simply a time where preparation has produced progress into a new place of development. We recognize we are not where we were but have moved into a new season. While personal change is always at work, we note that we are in Kingdom assignments that are changing the world around us. Finally, this leads to translation. In fact, Colossians 1:13 says we have already been translated into the Kingdom, but we need to comprehend it. Translation can best be

defined as unfolding vision to live in the destination God has set before us before our arrival. Translation could be described as grasping an understanding or interpreting the lifestyle of Kingdom citizenship in which we now walk. My wife Liz often provides language translation from Spanish to English and English to Spanish so that people from one country can understand the culture and thoughts of another. God has translated us into His Kingdom so that we can grasp who we are as citizens of His government and then translate His Kingdom into the earth.

God’s regenerated citizens are rising through Him bringing CHANGE that impacts the nations with the cultivation and influence of the Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. God is bringing this accelerated CHANGE through the innovations of His saints. Get ready! This accelerated CHANGE is HERE now. If we think this CHANGE will bring more of the SAME, we will miss it, but if we yield completely into becoming TRANSFORMED KINGDOM AGENTS, this CHANGE will bring us into dimensions and access beyond anything we have ever dreamed.

❝ God has translated us into His Kingdom so that we can grasp who we are as citizens of His government and then translate His Kingdom into the earth. ❞

A New Mind Set

Demolishing Strongholds and Obeying the Messiah On the basis of traumatic or repeated and reinforced experiences, since an early age we often make, most of times unconsciously, major decisions regarding ourselves, other people and life in general. Once such a decision is taken, we also take or reinforce a related psychological position. This is how life becomes like a script, which we follow and keep active with words and actions called script-reinforcing behaviors. Once we have selected a script, we seek to keep our world predictable by reinforcing it playing the same parts over and over again, so that we end up saying internally, “I knew it, it has always been like that” (see M. James and L. Savary, “A New Self”,1977, Addison-Welsey Publishing Company, Usa, 1980). This is how people can build up strong devaluating convictions about themselves, others and life in general, God included. These convictions are real strongholds and experts in this area say that they can be changed only through a re-deciding process, related to new experiences of life. In 1 Cor. 10, 3-6 the Apostle Paul says that we, as Christians, have weapons to wage war against the way the world brings people to think. It is God’s power

for (i) demolishing arguments and every arrogance that raises itself up against the knowledge of God and (ii) for taking captive every thought and make it obey the Messiah. Thus, knowing the strategies that the devil uses to (i) make us build strongholds in our minds and (ii) obey them as the truth, we can use God’s power (i) to demolish them and (ii) build in us a new mind set to obey the Messiah and not the devil any more. In order to demolish these strongholds, we can surely use any known ‘healthy’ therapy to gain the awareness of the enemy’s strategies and how we function in our minds. However, we know from Ef. 6, 11-12 that our struggle is against the powers of darkness, as well as that God has provided us with His armor and weaponry so that we are able to stand against the deceptive tactics of the adversary. We need to cast out the demons which have occupied parts of our mind set through devaluating and negative convictions!

These spiritual forces of the devil abide and hide in the strongholds of the mind. Whatever devaluates a human being and life itself is not from God. Devaluation is the content of any arrogant and proud thought, being opposite to God’s thinking about us and life. While tearing down the strongholds and casting out the demons, we need to have new experiences of God’s love in order for us to re-decide to trust Him and His plan for us. Only a sense of safe attachment to God will prompt us to trust him beyond any understanding. Thus we can naturally obey the Messiah. We need to experience God’s abiding presence, love and power to re-decide to value and love ourselves, the others and life, God included. This experience can surely be done in the Church, when we love one another as Jesus loved us. Thus, steps to freedom are: awareness of the enemy’s strategies, deliverance from the evil spirits and trust in God through the experience of His love and power.

Change Change is something most humans do not want to experience but is inevitable in every life. The point to ascertain here is how to cope with “CHANGE” when it comes. IT IS UNAVOIDABLE WHETHER POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE. CHANGE IS SURE TO COME. One definition of change says change makes the form, nature, content, future course of something different from what it is or from what it would be if left. With this definition in mind, let us now look at the areas where we must experience change in life whether we like it or not. At birth, we must change from sucking our mother’s breast to eating solid food; from crawling to walking and then to running. At other times, we experience changes we do not expect or envisage such as earthquakes, tsunamis or even a building collapse; these changes come with their negative effects. Yet there are other changes that occur in our lives which have positive effects and gives us joy, such as when we are promoted in our offices, receive salary increases, purchase a new car, or build a new house - just to mention a few. Change is inevitable; therefore the important thing is to know how to manage change when it comes your way. Prophet Elijah was faced with change in his lifetime when he confronted the prophets of Baal. After a successful operation and defeat of 400 prophets of Baal, Elijah could not stand to deal with Jezebel, from whom he fled the city to the brook; from the brook to the widow’s house and finally back to the city. King David also experienced change in his life from the palace to the caves and back

to the palace. Do you remember Joseph? He too experienced change from his father’s house to the pit. He was sold into slavery, and into the palace and from the palace to the prison and back to the palace as the next in command to the Pharaoh of Egypt. What change are you experiencing right now? Is it the loss of a beloved family member, loss of a job, breakdown of your health, disappointment by a friend or a fiancé/fiancée? Divorce, loneliness, childlessness, ministerial stagnation or business failure? Whatever the change you are facing right now, remember this one thing, change is not meant to destroy you, rather it is meant for you to be stronger and better after having passed through it. Change is inevitable, therefore, when it comes your way, face it with JESUS leading your way and you will smile lasting the end. Do not bow your head and cry the remainder of your life. Arise and walk shoulder high like the son/daughter of the Almighty God that you are. Be strong and very courageous in the face of change and God will NOT allow you to drown in the ocean of change. I look forward to reading your testimony

Kingdom Messengers

Living From the Heart and Mind of Christ The challenges confronting our contemporary world are an indication of changes that should address belief systems which impact the outcome of personal and national life. Jesus came to restore mankind to divine order. Divine order is when the culture of heaven impacts the systems of this world. Jesus said, “I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows, Amp Bible).” Abundant life includes enjoying social and economic prosperity, good health, while valuing and serving humanity. The mission of Jesus was for people’s mindset to be transformed to His and for their lifestyles to align with the laws of God. Personal or national transformation therefore begins with a heart and mind transformation. A CALL TO A CHANGED MINDSET The motivation of Jesus was to restore people and nations to having the mentality of God’s Kingdom. He called people to realign their hearts and minds to His and to adopt the culture of heaven. In Matt. 4:17, It says, “From that time Jesus began to preach, crying out, Repent (change your mind for the better, heartily amend your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (AMP Bible). God calls people and nations to a heart and mind change (Ezek. 36:26, Rom. 12:2). This is because the heart and mind plays a vital role in daily and national life and the type fruit produced (Matt. 12:33-35, Matt 15:18-20, Prov. 4:23).

LIVING FROM HEAVENLY WISDOM

Jeremiah 17:9, 10 reveals the condition of the human heart functioning outside the jurisdiction of God’s rule. It has evil tendencies; it is deceitful above all things and exceedingly perverse, corrupt and wicked. James 3:1318 explains how wisdom can influence the outcome of a person’s actions. The wisdom which is earthly, unspiritual and demonic comes from “hearts that harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition.” The outcome of such wisdom is “disorder and every evil practice” (James 3:15,16). The author of James, however offers us the solution of positively impacting society; living from a “heavenly wisdom” which brings “divine order” and “empowers people to practice what is righteous and consistent with the Father’s Heart (James 5:1-18).” A MIND GOVERNED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT The warfare confronting mankind all over the world is not only of human or natural origin, it is also of spiritual origin. The spiritual is influenced by the Kingdom of God which leads to life and peace or influenced by the dominion of darkness which leads to death. Romans 5:6 says, “The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace (NIV).” God calls us to actively submit our minds to the Holy Spirit and to be spiritually minded. A spiritually minded person depends on the Holy Spirit to be able

to discern things that are spiritually influenced in order to correctly apply truth in prayers and practical actions. CALLED TO LIVE FROM THE MIND OF CHRIST The Bible tells us we have the mind of Christ and to have the same mindset as Christ Jesus (Phil 2:5, 1 Cor. 2:16b). A person with the heart and mind of Christ is subject to God, governed by the Holy Spirit and does the will of God. He is focused on the possibilities of God, full of faith, heavenly minded and spiritually active but of earthly good. He also values, honors and serves humanity. The Good News Bible translation of Proverb 4:23 reveal the power that thoughts have over life. It says, “Be careful how you think for your life is shaped by your thoughts.” It is my prayer you take responsibility for your life by guarding the wellspring of your life - your heart and mind. And may you be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is, his good, pleasing and perfect will (Romans 12:2). By Eric N. Supen, esupen@googlemail.com Includes modified excerpts from my book to be published (HEART REALIGNMENT: captivated and consumed by the Father’s Heart).

Kingdom Messengers

The Transforming Power of the Gospel John the Baptist and Jesus proclaimed the message, Repent! For the kingdom of heaven is at hand. This message was called the gospel, i.e. the GOOD NEWS. In biblical times many people were glad to hear this good news, and they responded to this message of John and Jesus. The Greek word in the King James Version for Repentance means to change your mind and this is the first word from the throneroom of God for humanity. Take-on a new mindset, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Jesus taught His disciples to pray that the Kingdom would come and for God’s will be to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven (Matt 6:10). That is, the Kingdom of God being manifested on earth in power, through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power (1 Corinthians 4:20). The apostle Paul wrote, “For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power. And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. When we proclaim the good news something good takes place. God demonstrated the power of the kingdom with salvation, change,

transformation, miracles, signs, healings, and the casting out of demons. The Kingdom of God is His will and dominion exercised on earth as it is in heaven. God’s Kingdom is His Kingship, Kingly rule, Reign, or sovereign government on earth. In the New Testament, the Greek word for “kingdom” is basileia, which means: royalty, rule, sovereignty and His royal power. The Kingdom of God is a dominant topic in the New Testament and Jesus tells us that we are to seek the Kingdom of God above all things (Matthew 6:33). For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. (Romans 14:17) We are an original, carrying God’s DNA. We were deformed by sin and sickness, but are finally transformed and adopted into the Royal Family of Almighty God. So to be in God’s Kingdom we have to be born again. In Christ, you have been declared righteous; we are not righteous by what we do, but by what Jesus did on the cross - we simply receive His righteousness. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. When you accept Christ, you receive a nature of righteousness. As a born-again

❝ Jesus died so that we could live through Him and become a brand new person inside, transformed by the power of God.❞

Christian, you are imparted with the true nature of God and actually take on God’s DNA. “And put on the new nature created in God’s image, in true righteousness and holiness” Ephesians 4:24. We become a new person in Jesus and are freed from our old life, and receive a new life in Him. Jesus died so that we could live through Him and become a brand new person inside, transformed by the power of God. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing, you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. The word transformed used in the scripture is more than just the process of thinking differently. It is the root of our word “metamorphosis” (as in a caterpillar changing into a butterfly) and means to change into another form, to transform or to transfigure.

Empowerment

A Reforming

Generation

With Change comes Change..... “For the earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of God” - Romans 8:19 There is an atmosphere of change in the world, and there are people who are called to be the “Agents of Change,” I believe these individuals are called the “Sons of God”. We have hit critical mass and the world is looking for “change agents” who are knowledgeable, forerunners, and skillful, but most of all are problem solvers who kick-start reformation on every mountain and in every industry. To be a Reformer is nothing new for the Kingdom of God, in fact, it’s actually a byproduct of the Kingdom. Do you remember the young king - Josiah? He was a king who initiated a turnaround in his generation during a crisis. A reformer is a change agent on a mission to bring in a new and better way. In times of crisis, most people panic or cower to avoid change. But for those

who are called for such a time as this, “they become light in the midst of darkness.” So as the earth groans the nations await a “Reforming Generation.” A generation of “agents of change” called to make corrective changes. A generation called to submit to Heaven’s mandates, after all, all reformative work initiates in heaven and travels like the speed of light into the hearts of men.

Q.

How do Identify a reformer ?

A. Great question. Many see the world from a panoramic view. They see the nations and the problems and feel obligated to “trouble that which inflicts humanity.” Inwardly they know there is a solution, and they are not afraid to rewrite a new template for the solution. They go where most refuse, while solving problems to advance the kingdom. Q. Why

do we need a reforming generation of change agents ?

A. Well, each generation establishes the next generation. What do I mean? Either one generation leaves a blessing or makes it difficult for the next generation. Many generations from their predecessors have felt the repercussions of unjust laws as well as many other things that should have been changed. The Bible declares that the kingdom of God is to be ever increasing (Isaiah 9:7). A reformer always strives for advancement. For example, when the world needed to shift with equality for all men, there was an eloquent preacher by the name of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His desires, vision and dream was clear, and he “changed” the world forever with the Civil Rights Movement. This is what change agents do! So what does this mean for a reforming generation in the Kingdom of God? Follow the template Jesus left as He was the ultimate “Change Agent and Reformer” when he declared, “Repent and believe the good news!” (Mark 1:15). What was He declaring? He was declaring change and that this is a turnaround time for a new and excellent way.

Purposeful Living

Planning for Change He blessed us to fulfill the roles of kings and priests in His kingdom. It is every man’s purpose in life to cultivate the earth with the culture of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whether change happens suddenly or is seen afar off, the purpose of man remains the same. “We must be about our Father’s business” (Luke 2:49).

Set “priorities”.

If someone were to inform you that tomorrow your home would be robbed, or the next day you would lose your job, or perhaps you will receive a large sum of money; would you take steps to prepare for it? One thing we can always count on in this present world is the overwhelming prominence of change. Change happens to all whether in relationships, careers or physical health, change is always sure to come. Some change is brought on by the decisions we make every day, still other changes arise due to circumstances beyond our control; nevertheless, it comes. Regardless of how it may feel at the moment, ultimately change is good, because change guarantees there will be an outcome. The outcome of change is determined by the decisions we choose to make before, during, and after change is recognized. Although the process of change cannot be simplified, there is a way to better prepare for it. I would like to share with you “three p’s for planning for change”—purpose, priorities, and passion.

Establish “purpose”. Without a clear understanding of purpose, life can be an aimless game of chance and happenstance. Purpose provides a foundation for living; it increases focus; and gives birth to grit and perseverance. A person well established in purpose is not easily shaken. God revealed His original purpose of man in the first book of the Bible when He assigned man the responsibility of having dominion over the earth and its resources.

Establishing purpose is important, but purpose without the proper priorities to fulfill it, is simply a fantasy. In Matt. 6:33 Jesus said, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness…” With this statement Jesus simplified all the complexities of life down to two priorities - the kingdom of God and righteousness. That’s it! The purpose of man is to cultivate the earth with God’s kingdom; the priorities of man are to place the concerns of the kingdom first and to obey the laws of the kingdom. Once purpose is being carried out and priorities are put in place, everything else will be provided.

Stir your “passion”.

Passion is an intense desire brought on by internal convictions. Passion is the fuel for achieving purpose. Passion keeps us going even when our bodies, circumstances, or people dictate that we stop. Passion allows us to patiently persevere through every challenge and to endure any change. Change may be inevitable, but the Kingdom of God is a constant in this ever-changing universe.

Holistic Health

God’s Original Health Plan And God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth.” And it was so (Genesis 1:11). God’s Original Health Plan is for us to live a life free from any sickness and disease and He made it possible by not only telling us what we should eat, but He provided it for us in the beginning.

❝ He made it possible by not only telling us what we should eat, but He provided it for us in the beginning. ❞ Definition of Food.

Any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body. It is usually of plant or some animal origin, and contains essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. The substance is ingested by an organism and assimilated by the organism’s cells in an effort to produce energy, maintain life, or stimulate growth.

Definition of Herbs.

Some believe that herbs are nearly natural drugs; they have certainly been the bases for drugs for decades. For example Bark Flower, Leaf Root, or non woody plants like Hyssop are all herbs. Even animals can take total

nourishment from some herbs like Eucalyptus, Alfalfa, Barley or seed plants. Herbs are full of essential nutrients as well. These are foods that are living and are able to reproduce themselves. This is important because when we eat anything it becomes a part of our body’s system, this means it can affect us, spiritually, mentally and physically. So if we eat dead foods like hybrid products, such as seed modification products or also known as GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) and chemical laden products such as MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) that is used in frozen foods and seasonings or Aspartame that is used as an artificial sweetener, we will then reproduce and become that dead thing. Our greatest wealth isn’t money or land it is our health, we would not be able to enjoy the abundance of possessions that God so desires for us to have without being in optimal health. God values our health and so should we. “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit (Governor of the Kingdom of Heaven), who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body,” (1 Cor. 6:19-20). God’s Original Health Plan isn’t something He must continue to carry out because He has done all that He is going to do. God placed our health in our hands. He causes the grass to grow for the livestock and plants for man to cultivate, that He may bring forth food from the earth (Psalms 104:14). If you notice, we must break up the soil in preparation for the sowing and planting so that we may reap a harvest of health. And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. (Genesis 1:29) It’s not our Governments, Monsanto, Pfizer, or any other organizations responsibility to keep us healthy. We must begin to rediscover what it is to live according to God’s Original Health Plan. In (Revelation 22:2) on each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. God has hidden his attributes in our environment so that we may benefit from them. The Kingdom Plantae knows its place and purpose. Why are we still standing outside the Garden of Eden when He has restored us to eat from many plants that desire to yield its goods so that we may live a healthy Life?

We can live in optimum health by following God’s Original Health Plan. Timothy Ellingtons Kingdom Traveler Group advancingkingdombusiness@gmail.com

A Deeper Look Renewing Your Mind According To Your Personal Kingdom Book One of the most impactful discoveries of my life has been the revelation that God has authored a book on my life that is based on a true story. This is a concept that I was unaware of for over 20 years of my traditional Christian life. I was taught that God knows everything about me, including the number of hairs of my head, yet no one ever taught me that God had written a book on my life before I was ever conceived on this earth. This revelation came to me during my personal study time and was confirmed by God Himself to me during one of my prayer sessions with Him. It was His confirmation that such a book existed that led me to take a deeper look into the written scriptures. I wanted to see if the Bible that I have used for over 20 years contained information that such a book existed and that it was relevant to my personal life.

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalms 139:16 What I discovered literally put me in a state of shock. In over 20 years I have attended over 2000 church services, numerous religious conferences, certification courses and hundreds of Bible studies. During those sessions I don’t remember anyone teaching me, or even mentioning, that such a book existed; so I never took the time to pursue God for such information. What shocked me the most was that after I discovered that such a book did exist, I quickly realized that my life did not line up with the contents of that book which contained the detailed will of God for my life. What I was doing with my life was writing my own book according to my own will, which included my assumptions of what I thought the will of God was for my life. What I was actually

❝ ...even Jesus had a book on His life. ❞

writing with my life actions was a book based on fiction since it wasn’t being lived from the reference point of truth originating from the mind of God concerning me. My journey to discover the truth that such a book existed led me to the fact that even Jesus had a book on His life.

Then I said, Lo, I come in the volume of the Book it is written of Me to do Your will, O God.” Hebrews 10:7 Jesus was just acting out what was already written about Him! It was as though everyday of His life, pages of His book were being read to Him in His morning prayer time, causing Him to respond accurately to every situation that presented itself to Him. Traditionally, this verse has been taught that this volume or book refers Old Testament scripture. A scripture that is used to validate this belief is:

And He said to them, These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms about Me. Luke 24:44 Though there are numerous indisputable prophetic scriptures about Jesus recorded in the Old Testament that He fulfilled. The details of His daily assignments that He received from God the Father on a daily basis are not found in the Old Testament writings. The details for His daily life came from another book, which was also a form of scripture that was exposed to Him through the mouth of God. An in-depth examination into Jesus’ prayer life, and choice words that He spoke, reveal the presence and fulfillment of another book that coincided with the Old Testament writings, pertaining to His life.

And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book. John 20:30

And there are also many things, whatever Jesus did, which if they were written singly, I suppose the world itself could not contain the books having been written. Amen. John 21:25 These verses give us proof that Jesus did much more than was documented about Him from the Old Testament scriptures. Many traditional religions teach Romans 12:2 from the perspective that the Bible is the primary resource that one should use to renew your mind. Though there is of course some value in this practice, the Bible does not contain the specifics for your life. This can only be found in the book that God has authored on your life. When someone makes a concentrated effort to learn to hear the voice of God and to record what God has told them through His Holy Spirit on a continual basis, this becomes a more precise and effective resource in the renewing of the mind process. True transformation comes when the Holy Spirit reads to you what has already been written about you. This becomes the script for your life that you must act out in order to truly live a Kingdom life. Everyday you can experience a new beginning by positioning yourself before a narrator that is commissioned by God to read to you the contents of your personal Kingdom book.

However, when He, the Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth. For He shall not speak of Himself, but whatever He hears, He shall speak. And He will announce to you things to come. John 16:13 In Jesus’ morning Prayer time (Isa. 50:4), He was being instructed about the things that were already written about Him. The result of this consistent experience is the reason why Jesus was able to say, “as my Father has taught me I speak” and “as I see my Father do, I do likewise” [John 5:19, 8:28]. How different do you believe your life would be if you approach morning Prayer and mind renewal like Jesus did by asking God the question “Father what have you written about me today?”

Gospel of the Kingdom of God

Change Y our Focus Change your focus. When you make the people around you the primary focus, God becomes secondary. When you make decisions based solely on how people are going to be impacted or if you try to live fully by the truth, the enemy will attempt to have you compromise. The reason being, what you compromise to keep, you always lose. Focus on what God speaks to your spirit about your purpose and His plan for your life. Develop a sensitive ear for the voice of God through His Word, situations and circumstances and other people. God is always leading you in pathways of righteousness for His name sake. Anyone who is an obstruction to you obeying God is just that, an obstruction. Go over them, or if need be, take a step back and go around them, but at all times keep moving. Why, because the Lord is perfecting that which concerns you. He will not forsake the works of His hands.

❝ Develop a sensitive ear for the voice of God through His Word, situations and circumstances and other people. ❞

People become drained when their focus is not on God. He said, “I will keep them in [perfect] peace, whose minds are stayed on Me, [Him].”

A Living Sacrifice 12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. - Romans 12:1-2


God of Science

The Kingdom’s

View of Restarts The world in which we live is all about change, and without it, life as we describe it would be barely noticeable. For example the plastics that we use are a result of a chemical change, the gasoline in our cars, the composites used to craft airplanes even the paint on our walls. To benefit from chemical changes knowledge of how different things react with new found associations is needed. Some elements love other elements, while others do not; this is the bedrock of Chemistry. Hydrogen and oxygen alone are invaluable elements; as you know oxygen is a needed constituent of breathable air. However, oxygen is equally needed when combined with Hydrogen to give us liquid water. The human body by weight is about 60% water, with the elements oxygen making up 65% of the average human body’s weight and hydrogen 10%. In fact only six elements make up 99% of the human body: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium and phosphorus. With these elements we have tissues, cells, muscles and every other component of the body.

In my beginners science class I was taught about two types of changes: chemical change and physical change. In the first case the composition of the object undergoing the change is altered, in the second, it is not. As an example, rusting is a chemical change, it is iron (III) reacting with oxygen, which by the way is the reason why Mars has its red color. An example of a physical change would be melting ice or breaking a glass. For both, the chemical composition of the original item is not changed, only the form or its appearance. Both are changes and both have value.

Armed with this understanding, we note some changes are merely that of appearance, form, size or structure, whereas others are changes of composition, from which something unique results. From the perspective of life, we assess two types of changes. A change merely in appearance, this could be a haircut, speech, clothing or weight; in all cases the same person remains. This type of change can also be in action, in education, in skills, all are unable to change the essence of the person. I. Cor. 13 says, “If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels…if I have the gift of prophesy and know all mysteries… if I give my possessions to feed the poor… and do not have love….” Here love is the motive and engine of action. However, we


God of Science

want to emphasize that good actions are not an indicator of commendable motives. Think about I Corinthians 15, Paul tells us that the body we sow in death is not the same recovered in resurrection. It is sown perishable and is raised imperishable. It is sown in dishonor and raised in glory. It is sown a natural body and raised a spiritual body. We will all be changed in a moment from mortality to immortality. These are clear indications that a change will occur, however, the change is that of essence, yet it is seeded with an inferior object our bodies. The seeded body can decay, die and is affected by disease, viruses and bacteria. The resurrected body is never affected in such ways, and it is uniquely different from the original though it may look like the former. Note that eyes are never a full indication of true changes, as chemical changes take place on the lowest

level, the atomic level which truly indicates something new is present. The chemical change illustration is the type of change rooted in the spirit and requires a power lacking human origin. Remember the words of Jesus, “you must be born again.” This tells us a change is needed beyond what can be initiated or recognized in our selves. What must occur must be so radical that it cannot be physical and needs a spiritual origin. Paul writes it this way, “If any man is in Christ he is a new creat[ion].” This type of change is analogous to a chemical change which brings about something new. It is because of the newness of life that we have, that our actions, speech and other character traits should show compliance. We should always be mindful of the two types of changes, and note that without the character of those changes in our lives, everything will remain the same.

Psalm 18

For the director of music. Of David the servant of the Lord. He sang to the Lord the words of this song when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said: 1 I love you, Lord, my strength. 2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield[b] and the horn[c] of my salvation, my stronghold. 3 I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I have been saved from my enemies. 4 The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me. 5 The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me. 6 In my distress I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears. 7 The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry. 8 Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. 9 He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under his feet. 10 He mounted the cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind. 11 He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him— the dark rain clouds of the sky. 12 Out of the brightness of his presence clouds advanced, with hailstones and bolts of lightning. 13 The Lord thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded.[d] 14 He shot his arrows and scattered the enemy, with great bolts of lightning he routed them. 15 The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at your rebuke, Lord, at the blast of breath from your nostrils. 16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. 17 He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. 18 They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. 19 He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me. 20 The Lord has dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me. 21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord; I am not guilty of turning from my God. 22 All his laws are before me; I have not turned away from his decrees. 23 I have been blameless before him and have kept myself from sin. 24 The Lord has rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight. 25 To the faithful you show yourself faithful,

to the blameless you show yourself blameless, 26 to the pure you show yourself pure, but to the devious you show yourself shrewd. 27 You save the humble but bring low those whose eyes are haughty. 28 You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. 29 With your help I can advance against a troop[e]; with my God I can scale a wall. 30 As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. 31 For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? 32 It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. 33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights. 34 He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. 35 You make your saving help my shield, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great. 36 You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way. 37 I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed. 38 I crushed them so that they could not rise; they fell beneath my feet. 39 You armed me with strength for battle; you humbled my adversaries before me. 40 You made my enemies turn their backs in flight, and I destroyed my foes. 41 They cried for help, but there was no one to save them— to the Lord, but he did not answer. 42 I beat them as fine as windblown dust; I trampled them[f] like mud in the streets. 43 You have delivered me from the attacks of the people; you have made me the head of nations. People I did not know now serve me, 44 foreigners cower before me; as soon as they hear of me, they obey me. 45 They all lose heart; they come trembling from their strongholds. 46 The Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior! 47 He is the God who avenges me, who subdues nations under me, 48 who saves me from my enemies. You exalted me above my foes; from a violent man you rescued me. 49 Therefore I will praise you, Lord, among the nations; I will sing the praises of your name. 50 He gives his king great victories; he shows unfailing love to his anointed, to David and to his descendants forever.
