Godís Blueprint For Living
[***Please read part 1 of this teaching or you will not understand part 2.]
You should remember that we ended part 1 of this teaching with the young man who had purchased some flowers for his girlfriend on his way home from work.† Because he was giving to his girlfriend, many of the negative thoughts that he thought she was thinking about him seemed to just go away.† This is another great principle in the Word of God.† I am not going to quote any Scriptures pertaining to this principle.† You may want to look up some of them on your own.† Remember, you must get on your own with God and not only depend upon my teachings.
Blueprint:† Giving equals receiving.
Because this believer had blessed his girlfriend with a gift that she did not expect, he experienced healing in his mind pertaining to negative thoughts that we discussed in part 1.† This law of Giving equals Receiving is a major law of Godís Word.† If everyone knew that what they gave out, came back to them, everyone would stop doing wrong things to each other.† The world would be like a perfect world.† Remember, if you choose to hurt someone, especially an innocent person, you will pay for that deed about 10 times over.† Back to our believer.
Our believer is someone that we made up for this teaching.† Letís now say that this believer spent some time with his girlfriend and he is about to head home.† What should he feel and what should he be searching for when he gets to his home?† He had a good day and he stayed in fellowship with God and what he would really like is for a few hours is of peace and quiet.
Blueprint:† And above all these things put on† charity [the love of God in the renewed mind in manifestation], which is the bond of perfectness. -- Colossians 3: 14
We must take notice that this believer did put on charity.† He walked with God all day long and now he is to receive the rewards of his efforts.† The next verse points out one of those rewards.
Blueprint:† And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be thankful. -- Colossians 3: 15
We had previously discussed that this believer, who had a very full day, came home searching for peace and quiet.† He will find that peace, quiet and relaxation by one of 5 methods or means.† Some of you may remember that I did a specific teaching on the 5 ways to relax.† This believer can relax by either listening to music, reading the Bible, via humor, through sleep, or spending some time in nature. †In this situation, our believer would probably relax by listening to music or taking some more time to read his Bible.† The point I am trying to get across is that our believer, in this teaching, because of his actions during the day, is going to get blessed.† God will show him ways to relax and to have some peace and quiet.
I want you to also notice that one of the main blueprints for living is to walk with the love of God in the renewed mind in manifestation.† Here is something that should shake you up.† The love of God never fails.† Can you imagine that?
Blueprint:† Charity [the love of God in the renewed mind in manifestation] never faileth; -- I Corinthians 13: 8a
Every time you operate the love of God, it will never fail.† Whatever youíre trying to accomplish thatís done with the love of God, it will absolutely come to pass.† We are walking today with about 10% of the power that we have as a result of what Jesus Christ accomplished for us.† Think about that for a while.† The enemy who is Satan and is presently the god of this world, talks us out of using our power.† He whispers in your ear and he says to you ďOh, you canít do that.† Listen to what your religious leaders are telling you.† They teach you that Jesus Christ is God.† Listen to them.† The Bible is a book of fictitious letters written by men.Ē† And when you listen to his voice, Satan will steal kill and destroy you.† That is all that he does.
Just recently I received a letter from a tremendous believer that actually watches my site and makes sure that all the teachings are there.† And recently, and for no logical reason at all, all my teachings in the Advanced category just got up and disappeared.† If it werenít for this blessed believer notifying me that this had taken place, I would never have corrected that category as quickly as we did.† There are so many teachings on this website that I cannot keep track of everything all of the time.† But you have to look at one principle.† This was not my fault.† Whose fault was it?† I blame the god of this world.† He has the power to do things that people would never imagine.† He hates this website Ė he hates it with all of his might.† It is the rightly divided Word of God that defeats him.† Because I myself manifest the love of God in the renewed mind in manifestation, God made sure that my peace and quiet and relaxation came back to me soon by receiving a message telling me that there was a serious problem.† We fixed it in a few hours and we still have no idea in the world how it happened or how it could even happen.† The love of God never fails.† God had somebody looking out for me who wrote a simple letter and that was the beginning of the end of the adversaryís game with this website.† I get excited.† I canít help it.† Itís a beautiful thing that you must experience in your life.
Itís time now to shift gears.† I am going to move away from the schedule of our imaginary believer for the time being.† However, the principal I am about to share with you does apply to our believer and to every believer that walks on the face of this earth.† This principle set me free in many, many ways and I am sure it will do the same thing for you.† You definitely need to understand what I am about to teach you. It will allow you more freedom and a much closer relationship with God.
You may want to say this to me: †ĎHey, I donít have a nice girl and if I did I would buy her some jewelry and not some flowers that will wither away shortly. †Also, I donít have a job that I can enjoy.í† That is perfectly okay.† This is all part of the renewed mind and that is a difficult process.
Blueprint:† The renewed mind.† I BESEECH you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is† your reasonable [religious] service. -- Romans 12: 1
Blueprint:† And be not conformed [fashioned] to this world; but be transformed [transfigured] by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is† that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. -- Romans 12: 2
In the first place, God does not want us to conform to this world.† Here is where we must find the proper balance between living in this world, but not conforming to it.† This is where you may experience some difficulty.† For example. I do not believe that speed limits are correct in most areas.† Man is basically very lazy and he will simply not change speed limits from 25 to 35 because it is just too much work.† Some of you know what I mean.† So when I am driving in a certain speed limit, more than likely, I am going faster than the speed limit states.† How much faster is determined by my renewed mind.† How much faster does God allow me to drive? THIS IS THE NEXT GREAT PRINCIPLE I AM GOING TO SHARE WITH YOU.
There is a phrase, statement or principle that will surely set you free and allow you to have an individual relationship with God.† It is something that took me many years to learn and Iím going to share it with you right now.† Then, we will go back to our imaginary believer and continue where we left off.† But now, you will feel a great sense of ease knowing that you have something with God that no one else in the world has, but you.† Letís get right to it.† The principal is mentioned in II Peter.
Blueprint:† GODLINESS.† According as [he by] his divine power had given unto us all things that pertain† unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath
[scratch the word Ďhathí] called us to [his own] glory and virtue [superior excellence].
Can you guess the principle that Iím trying to stress here?† Obviously, it is the word Ďgodlinessí.† This is something you need to remember.† Itís my bet that you will not forget it.† Godliness is your own spiritual and vital relationship with God Almighty.† No one else on the face of this earth has the same relationship that you have with God.† God will speak to you differently and He will show you things differently than every other believer.† It is a private thing between you and God Almighty.† When I was using the examples for our fictitious believer, it struck me that I should explain this principle to you.† I feel the time is exactly right to share this with you.† This helps you to understand that the example being used in this teaching may not apply exactly to you.† Something about these examples used previously will be somewhat different for you.† I have a way that I work with God.† He knows how to let me know when Iím getting proper Revelation or counterfeit revelation.† God is no respecter of persons so He will do the same thing for you IF you study and renew your mind as Romans 12: 1, 2 clearly states.† This paragraph contains one of the most important principle that you can learn from this teaching.† God does not speak to everyone in the same manner.† He speaks to everyone in a different separate way that will fit your personality and way of thinking.† The principle of godliness is massive.† You must understand it.† It will set you free and give you an individual and a separate, unique relationship with the Father.
Now we are going to get back to our hypothetical believer.† If you remember, he was searching for some peace and quiet and he had a choice of 5 different ways to relax.† Here is where you can apply godliness.† Letís say that our believer decided to listen to some music.† He may like rock Ďn roll.† I also like that subject myself.† Another believer may like country-western.† I, myself, do not care for this type of music.† It seems to be the same thing over and over again, but you may disagree and that is perfectly fine.† We are to be like-minded on the Word of God and not on our idiosyncrasies.† If a believer hasnít renewed his or her mind on what I just said, there are going to be problems and people are going to get out of fellowship.† It is difficult for people to understand that some people like red cars and other people do not.† I had an orange hot rod Nova at one time and many people came up to me and said they just love the color.† I hated the color and thatís why I eventually sold the car.† So everyone has different tastes and everyone walks with God in a slightly different manner.† I wanted to get that point across to you.† God refers to this as godliness.† Now Iím going to reach deeply into the Word and talk about a subject that may give many believers a difficult time.† The answer is so simple that I will say what I said many, many times.† It should just blow your mind.
I went to my branch leader a long time ago, a most dynamic woman of God. †I was fortunate to be in her fellowship and I listened intently to everything she had to say.† But one time, I came up with a question that I badly needed an answer and Iím sure you will too.† What do you do when you have a decision that is not specifically stated in the Word of God?† She looked at me and smiled in a gentle manner and she said two words and that was it.
Blueprint:† ďAsk GodĒ
You will learn to develop this habit in time after you make a lot of mistakes.† I could be in a store and I have 2 different choices as to which car part, oil, or filter to buy.† I would scramble my brain trying to figure out what the heck to do.† Then, thank God, I will remember what my branch leader told me. ďAsk GodĒ.† Blow me away.† I would ask God which part was the best part for me and He would tell me.† ITíS THAT SIMPLE.Ē !!!† In time, I learned to do this out of habit and it became easier and easier.
Blueprint:† In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God in the Spirit. -- Ephesians 2: 22
When I first got into the Word of God, I went to visit our headquarters in Ohio.† I remember only important things that are said to me.† This one believer in a leadership position explained to me that God had built us so that He can have some company and live within our own bodies.† I know this may be hard to understand, but God was lonely and He wanted some companionship.† When a person is born again of Godís Spirit, God actually lives within that person.† So when you go to God for help and guidance, it blesses God.† Let me share another Scripture with you.† Would you like a concise, simple definition of the love of God?
Blueprint:† For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments:† and his commandments are not grievous. - I John 5: 3
His commandments are not oppressive.† Címon,† letís get with the program.† Itís a blast to rub the face of devil into the ground.† How about that young child killed in a car accident?† Who do you think did that?† How about that person that was precious to you and is now gone?† Thereís nothing you can do.???† The hell there isnít.† You fight the devil with the Word of God.† Thatís the only thing that defeats him.† You donít react to him - let God handle it.
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather† give place unto wrath:† for it is written, Vengeance is †mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. -- Romans 12: 19†
But rather give place unto wrath.† Do not misunderstand this like I did for so many years.† The word Ďwrathí here is referring to the wrath of God.† God seeks vengeance Ė He will repay.† We are to never seek vengeance, but to walk away and not to react to what the devil throws at you.† Believe it, donít make that mistake.† It was one of my weak points and I worked really hard to overcome it.† You canít beat Satan with words unless they are the Words of God Almighty.
I would like to conclude this teaching with a most appropriate Scripture.† This teaching can go on forever.† I believe that you got the gist of the overall teaching.† Godís Word has an answer for every situation of life in this world.† Seek and you shall find.† Godís got your Blueprint For Living.
I have no greater joy than to hear than my children walk in truth. -- I John 1: 4
