Statement of FaithTo His Glory Ministry
I would like to share with you an outline of the Statement of Faith for my life and this ministry. I know that many organizations have Mission Statements and I think that can be very good, but the question is, if you have a mission statement or a statement of faith no matter how good it sounds; are you actually walking the talk? So, I must honestly ask myself the same question. God tells us that people will know those who are His by the fruit they bear, so if we are His, it is our charge to produce fruit with the Help Of, and through the Power Of the Holy Spirit of the Living God, giving all to the Glory to He who sits upon the Throne and the Lamb who was slain.
The goal of this ministry is very simple; GIVE GLORY TO GOD in every word we speak, every word we write and in every step we take. We believe in One God (Isaiah 43:) that created the heavens and the earth and to Him be all the Glory, Honor and Praise because He is worthy. He created everything that exists and nothing exists that is not in His providence. He is a Holy and Perfect God and created us (men and women) without sin to be in fellowship with Him. We thought we could do it better on our own and separated ourselves from Him by disobeying. The penalty for sin is death, and death is eternal separation from God.
However, our Heavenly Father’s Love is so great that He sent us His only begotten Son, (The Lord Jesus Christ who willingly came) so that whosoever believes in Him, (has faith in Him and trusts in Him), will not perish but has eternal life. Yes, God’s only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ came as a man and lived a sinless life among us, on this earth, and then willingly gave up His life on a cross as payment in full for the sins of the world. By His shed blood, all who believe in Him, have faith in Him and trust in Him are released from the power of sin and death and given eternal life.
He also gave us the Bible, which is the written word of God inspired by the Holy Spirit. Because it was given by God, it is infallible which means it IS HIS TRUTH.
His Word is The Person of the Lord Jesus Christ. He sits at the right hand of The Father and has been crowned Lord of lords and King of kings. If He is your Lord, then please address Him as Lord, today. We know that “every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Him as Lord” but we as born again sons and daughters of the King and do so reverence Him. Do so now to bring Glory and Honor to the Father.
His Word is not subject to the twists, turns or spins we as sinful beings attempt, trying to fit His Word into our world view or our religious view. As such, we really need to open it up, read and pay close attention to what He says, asking the Holy Spirit of the Living God to show and confirm His Word in us giving us Heavenly Wisdom and Heavenly Understanding. We cannot read the Word of God with our own carnal or earthly understanding and wisdom. It cannot be understood by the natural man, we must have heavenly wisdom and heavenly understanding. This is given to those who are born again of the water and the spirit by the Holy Spirit of the Living God. (1 Corinthians 1:-3:).
Always Read the Word of God in context, reading the entire chapter or book, asking the Holy Spirit of the Living God to give you “Heavenly Wisdom and Heavenly Understanding” (1 Corinthians 1:-3:). Always fill the well within you with the Pure Word of God, His Pure Truth; fill the well to overflowing. “Do not lean on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:) or fractionate verses or sections of His Word that by human or carnal wisdom lead to earthly or religious understandings, doctrines and practices. It is not for us to interpret the Word of God. (2nd Peter 1:) There is only one truth to any given matter and The Holy Spirit will reveal that truth and confirm that truth in The Word; time and time again in your heart, but you must be willing to put aside all (religious teachings and carnal interpretations) and allow “His winnowing fork to separate the wheat from the chaff with unquenchable fire”; this is the true baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire. (Matthew 3:)
Please remember it is only the seed that we as humans can plant and water, Heavenly Wisdom, Heavenly Understanding and Growth come directly from God, by and through the Holy Spirit with us and in us (1 Corinthians 3:, John 14:) for those who will open their hearts and minds to Him and come with humility, fear, obedience and reverence.
Know His Truth: “So we have the message of the prophets more certainly guaranteed. Please pay attention to this message as to a lamp that is shining in a dismal place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; because you recognize this truth above all else, that no prophecy in Scripture is to be interpreted by one’s own mind, for no prophecy has ever yet originated in man’s will, but men who were led by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.” (2 Peter 1:)
Gain “Heavenly Wisdom and Heavenly Understanding” by and through the Holy Spirit of the Living God, who is “with you and in you” (John 14:); These are the promises to each who are truly born again, of the King. So, “Be not Wise in your own eyes”. (Proverbs 3:) knowing without a doubt that the: “natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.” (1 Corinthians 2:14). His Truth is His Truth, because He is the Truth. It can only be understood with Heavenly Wisdom and Heavenly Understanding as He and He alone gives and confirms in His Word.
Read His Word In Context – Fill The Well Within You with His Living Water.
Philippians 2:9–11 (The Living Bible) 9 Yet it was because of this that God raised him up to the heights of heaven and gave him a name which is above every other name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
The Holy Spirit of the Living God is to be respected and revered. The Holy Spirit is the promise and gift of the Salvation He has promised and made possible by the free gift given on the cross. The Holy Spirit of the Living God is with us and in us (John 14:) as promised by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and is not a “dead ghost” as some with little regard and/or ignorance as to the meaning of their words referr to Him.
He told us that one simple rule sums up all of the regulations, the do’s and don’ts of the Law. “Love the Lord your God with all you heart, with all your soul and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:34-40) He clearly and simply tells us that we cannot love Him if we are not willing to obey Him. If we choose to use His Grace as a license to sin and commit immoral acts the Blood of Christ will not forgive us; simply put we are not to continue in the practice of sin. (Read the Gospel of John and 1 John and then Hebrews 10:)
Now, it is our job to do just that. You see the gate to eternal life is narrow. We each will stand before God and give an account of our own life being held to His Standard, not our own, so pretty much now is the time we all should be paying pretty close attention. Society, civil or religious rules, norms, policy, and practices mean nothing if they do not honor God. The embracing, condoning, acceptance and delight in practicing sin is not of God and should not be the practice of His people.
No matter how great or important or educated or diverse we think we are; it is not about us, His commands have not changed nor will they change. We cannot practice sin because His Word and His Law does not change: IT IS ALL ABOUT HIM. We should decrease that He may increase. (John 3:30)
So, if you are a brother or sister in Christ, truly born of the water and the spirit; I love you and stand with you shoulder to shoulder regardless of who you are, where you live, how you dress, or what church you attend. The Lord clearly told us that those who are His, those with their name written in the Lamb’s Book of Live are members of the Church of the Firstborn who are enrolled in heaven and when it is all said and done that is the only church body that is going to count for all eternity.
Now, if you do not know the Lord and/or just completely disagree with my beliefs I still love you. Why? Because guess what, we are still neighbors on this planet and we all have the opportunity to come to know the Lord and be with Him forever rather than the alternative which is eternal separation for Him in a place called hell.
He told us to Love and Obey Him (John 14: & 15). That means all of His Word, not just the parts we agree with.
He was pretty clear about telling us to take care of the widows, orphans and the needy. We need to make that a pretty big priority.
He also asked that we be diligent, kind, loving and respectful while getting out to tell others about Him; making disciples (That means disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, not the ever changing “Jesus” of world religions and the so called “christian denominations” but the Lord Jesus Christ crowned Lord of lords and King of kings, sitting at the right hand of the Father and found worthy of His name and Title. So if He is your Lord then honor Him as your Lord and Saviour; use His Name and Title, “Lord Jesus” every time you speak of Him.) of all nations (both men and women), baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
He also told us that we are to show Him the reverence due His name and to Worship Him. The Psalmist tells us “Give Unto the Lord the Glory due His Name. Bow (Worship) to the Lord in the Beauty of His Holiness.” (Psalm 29:2)
As you know, He tells us that “to whom much is given much is required”. I know that to you and I much has been given, but have you ever asked Him what the “much required” is? If you inquire, you will find the “much” He is referring to is obedience. If we are obedient then we truly do Love Him. He is very clear in what we are to do: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ However, you cannot Love the Lord unless you obey Him. (1John 3: 4-6) so continuing to practice sin or thinking we can change His Word and call evil good and good evil is not where we are to be. If we continue in a life style of practicing sin then we are not His. These are His words not mine.
The time is short and we have a lot to do. Each day, each and every one of us should be on our knees, earnestly confessing our sins, asking for forgiveness, being washed in the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and then by and through His Power walk in Holiness.
“Be Holy for I AM Holy”
We should be spending time with Him each day in our prayer closet (Mathew 6:6), feasting on the body and the blood (John 6:), and on our knees Worshiping Him, and giving Him the Glory due His Name.
Now, let us as brothers and sisters in Christ unite, as one body with one Spirit, with one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism and one God and Father of all who is above all, through all and in each one of us (Ephesians 4: 4-6). Then get out there, put aside our differences and go about doing what our Heavenly Father has asked us to do.
Let every word we speak, every action of our life and every step we take be To His Glory!
