There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.
(Proverbs 14:12)

sometimes what appears to be very right can actually be very wrong!

Everyone of us have a belief system, and for all of us, what we believe is correct! So we think, Right? Well today Allow me to challenge you on your philosophy. How and why do you come to the conclusions and choices you make daily?where do you get all the stuff that you believe? “It’s just up their some where in my head,” What’s the foundation you base your decisions on?

THE POWER OF ONE

Then Jesus asked, “what is the Kingdom of God like?what shall I compare it to?

it is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds perched in its branches.”

Again he asked, “what shall I compare the Kingdom of God to? It is like yeast that

a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through the dough. (Luke 13:18-21)

kingdom: Greek – basilica 932 – properly royalty : Kingdom reign. As embodied in the visible church and the universal spread of the gospel.

Oh I like that! “Properly Royal” Jesus is our commander and chief! When He is allowed to lead in the “properly royal” position in the church, we will see the  kingdom of God  residing as a “properly royal “reign, It will manifest with “Zoe”life through every area of the church. No more floundering, no more programmes trying to make things happen, growth will just appear when Jesus is Lord. “Those who accepted his message were baptised, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.” (Acts 2:41) See that on one day there were three thousand added to the church.This change of command will be a universal and eternal change, it will permeate through every area just like the yeast did through the sixty pounds of flour. And just like the small mustard seed growing to be a tree where the birds perched in its branches.The kingdom of God will influence the church through its vessels. It won’t be stopped, controlled or manipulate, because it is the power of God unto salvation effecting eternal good to all who will believe.(Romans 1:16) “the One enthroned in heaven laughs”(Ps2:4).

Church, you are carrying around in your bodies the life of Jesus Christ. He is planted on the inside of you, He is the yeast that will bring growth, His Glory manifesting on the inside of you and filtering out to all who will believe. This power on the inside is not for you but for all those who are perishing. “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”(2cor4:7-18) and that is the power of one.! Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Yes we are all subject to receiving knowledge, this could allow us to be tricked into deception if we are not sensitive to truth,as we progress using this means of knowledge, we will be enticed into a wrong direction causing a painful life existence and let’s face it, life is much too short for us to get off on the wrong path and windup on a dead end street.

Where we get our information is the determining factor to the quality of life we will experience. Have a read sometime of Adam and Eve’s plight, a great example to us of listening to the wrong voice. (Genesis 3) We can either find our direction from the tree of life,or from the knowledge of good and evil.

Our decisions, our judgements, our knowledge need to be based from the word of

God. “As for me and my household we will serve the Lord”(Joshua 24.15)

If our philosophy is not from Gods word we are in a wrong philosophy. Every choice and decision we make needs to be tested in Gods truth(Col:2-8).If that’s
Ruffling some feathers I am comfortable, until you’re challenged you won’t see the truth. “The truth will set you free”. Focusing on the source of all truth will protect you.

Being grounded in Gods word will save you and those who will hear you.

“Be diligent in these matters;give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress, watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them,because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers” (1Timothy 4:15-16)
