World Wide Apostolic Assembly June 17, 2012
Presiding : Apostle John Welty 1 John 3:22
Review : Apostle John making distinction. Writing to those who are keeping covenant with God and working in the priesthood of Christ.
Acts Chapter 1:2 Christ gave the commandments to his apostles, His decrees given to apostles to know what to keep. In order to direct the faith of the people. God gave stewards for people to be accountable to truth. As in Judges when they were without a knowledge Steward they would go and do what was right in their own eyes. People think having the bible they are good to know God and serve him.
The Epistles are written to those who have been instructed in the knowledge of truth. Not written to unconverted believers who interpret scriptures on their own. They are standing in darkness and reading and interpreting the scriptures according to their own experience. Christ has given knowledge from His own bosom from above. This knowledge is the foundation knowledge Christ gives to apostles for direction of faith by truth. They the apostles were teaching not fundamental knowledge as the world is aware of but were teaching foundation knowledge.
To walk in agreement with God you have to first be instructed. There are those who say they know Him and do not. There are those who try to tell you they are sanctified sinners. In him is no darkness if they sin how are they Christians? They have this problem due to using paper and ink that says that God speaks to them. This is private interpretation, and this is dangerous business to be doing that.
By the stewardship the knowledge is spoken to, and in this knowledge there is no shadow of turning. There is no guile and it is able to remain pure for this is the spoken word from the record of Christ.
People work with their imagination and think they can easily understand the knowledge of God. God speaks to the stewardship and they are working only with their imagination of what they think God says.
1Jn 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
We are keeping the commandments and terms he has made known to us the boundaries and restrictions of this knowledge to exercise our choices of faith and know the distinction between the clean and unclean.
Keeping and Doing. We keep his commandments, having to do with the knowledge and the activity of our priesthood. Keeping the knowledge and doing the priesthood. We love Him now with this new covenant knowledge.
â€ś do those things that are pleasing in his sight. â€ť Those things of his anointing of this knowledge.
God has revealed the terms and condition and His apostles doctrine to the church so we can serve him by these things and because of this working relationship with God we do those things pleasing in His sight and whatsoever we ask we receive of Him.
We are not shouting commands to God but we have communion with Him daily and exchange this knowledge and stewarding the grace of God and we have this working relationship where he grants our request.
God will respond to our faith for we are meeting his expectations by the doctrine of Christ for he has framed his expectations for us in Christ and by the apostles doctrine we are reflecting Christ perfectly back to God. He loved us in Christ and we love him back with Christ with what he has revealed in the pattern of Christ. God has provided everything necessary for our faith to be pleasing in his sight. He is not pleased with your gifts and talents for those are only useful for your function in this dimension and not for the things that please God that he has sanctified for faith.
We testify of the things we see and know in the knowledge of Christ where there is no darkness and ambiguity.
The children of doubt are those who have not received foundation truth, so they do not see Christ, for Christ reveals Himself by His knowledge being the great light to those who sit in darkness.
1Jn 3:23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
Believing on is name having to do with the doctrine of truth. Truth shuts door of imagination to serve God in the priesthood.
The fruit of iniquity when we serve God in the priesthood shrivels up and dies for we are keeping covenant with God and only through this pattern do we also change our nature. People can change their behavior but not their nature.
Fantasy, finance and flattery keep the window of the imagination open. People need doctrinal cleansing first to be able to remove themselves from these things for the fruit of Christ to be birthed in the soul.
Our faith is to remain in the boundaries and restrictions for doing righteousness this is abiding in Him.
1Jn 3:23 â€śAnd this is his commandmentâ€ť, God sets policy and gives to stewardship. Truth has to be formed into our heart. God has to author the knowledge and God provided this by the elements of the gospel. This is how we literally experience a living Faith in God.
â€śThat we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christâ€ť This is the house of God not of Moses we are now to be subject to truth. God will confirm this knowledge and mold your confidence with this knowledge and God will bear witness to Christ you will come to know this.
â€śand love one another, as he gave us commandment.â€ť We are exercising ourselves with the knowledge from above. He has commanded for us to build with charity. We are bringing forth and increase in one another as we are receiving this knowledge it finds expression through our lips. There is a flow that takes place. When growth takes place in the seed of truth one begins to give expression to Christ. As the flower opens up it gives a fragrance and this is same thing in Christ that takes place in the soul. God is looking for the fragrance of Christ in the soul. HE looks for fruit that is after His Kind, one seed one fruit one knowledge one faith.
â€ś That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christâ€ť believe is to acknowledge and mold with and submit to. Acknowledge the knowledge of Christ, mold with this knowledge and submit to this knowledge.
People ramp up their boast for others to see them increase in a projection of themselves
The world will not recognize Christ in us. They will agree with each other on their own projections but will not mold their confidence with this knowledge. The Spirit of God only confirms the pattern of truth in us. They separate themselves to things they find hard to resist as in fantasy, finance, flattery, these they find difficult to resist and mold with these things. Fantasies and doctrines of the world that do not benefit them and Christ does not work with.
Through the divine pattern of reciprocation our doubts are resolved and we embrace truth.
Our faith removed from flesh to flame. He that keeps his commandments dwells in Him We experience regeneration and experience the renewing of the mind as we abide at the altar of Christ.
The record and the witness are in agreement in our heart and we grow thereby. 1Chron 16:15.We by these things are mindful of His covenant. This is what the Father bears witness too
Keeping His commandments having to do with being in the temple having to do with using the tools. We dwell in Him by faith and we know Him only through fruit bearing.
we know that he abideth in us, â€“ this in molding our confidence with this knowledge and therefore we know him by this knowledge.
â€śby the Spirit which he hath given us.â€ť The Spirit enters the record that we work with Life is formed as the joining comes together. As the Spirit went over the waters life was formed and our contact with these things the soul experiences Christ. God gives substance to our soul and we find these things useful for the powers of the world are subdued by the powers of the Spirit and the Father is assisting us to overcome by His powers.
God does not hold frailty against us but does hold lack of faith against you. This is why the apostle reminds little children to sew this knowledge to overcome and progress to young men and fathers.
Prophecies of The Body Of Christ:
John Scott III The doctrine of Christ remains wholesome as it is distributed through sanctified stewardship.
The body of Christ is nourished by the true manna from heaven, by which we partake of His virtue through His manifold grace.
Apostle Diane Swarthout ?(1) As a scrub brush removes embedded soil and grit, so grace and truth cleanse the soul and purge the conscience from false knowledge and iniquity when faith conforms to the knowledge of Christ and His covenant, preserved and taught by true apostles of God. (2) Grace and Truth carries the powerful but gentle persuasion for faith to turn from iniquity and aspirations to embrace and conform to the boundaries and pattern of Christ, which pleases God.
Apostle Erika Blignaut Being living epistles, the righteous speak of God by the authority of God to direct to God.
Friends of God are known of Him and heard.
Wendy Nilsson The soul is comforted by the knowledge of Christ for this is what we live by
Faith measured to Christ is faith which pleases the Father: thereby does He grant us His kingdom.
Joshua DeRuiter As we follow the Record of the Son we experience the Father nurturing the substance of His kingdom within our soul.
As fruit is nurtured and increased within our soul our hope is made living and expressed through our lips for the building up of the brethren in the faith of Christ Jesus.
Apostle Theodore ?*Those who work with Ink and Paper serve the god of their imagination for faith which leads to darkness and is abomnible to God but those who actively function in the Priesthood of Jesus Christ for faith increase in knowledge and fruit which pleases God.
*We grow in understanding as we keep ourselves joined to Him by His government, truth and Spirit
Wendy Nilsson Catie : The vibrations of the soul eco His glory, when His children are in the faith, daily conforming to His righteousness...then the crown of peace will be upon the heart.
Holly DeRuiter ?*Through Apostolic Government His pattern for faith is made known. Blessed are those who heed to this stewardship for their faith is made perfect.
*Truth that comes from a living apostles identifies the activity that God sanctified.
Makayla: We grow in faith through the tools of the covenant.
Vilmaliz Bosque Tommaso : Through the priesthood and the steward of Jesus Christ we are joined to the kingdom of God.
Evangelist Connie van Wyk With the tools of the Covenant we tightlyclose the window of the imagination and close the curtain to Satan's evil sowing, not yielding to and engaging with his inspritaion, and thus we answer him not that he cannot overthrow us and rob our hearts of faith!
Apostle Solomon Hopkins God did not leave us alone to decide what is good or bad for our walk of faith He gave stewards too keep us tethered to His throne of grace and truth. 2. We keep cadence with the Spirit of God through our labor with what God provided for our contact with Him not what man's imagination wants to labor with.
Apostle Diane Swarthout When the doctrine is pure, faith conforms with purity, but when the doctrine is confounded by the flesh, faith becomes faithlessness.
