World Wide Apostolic Assembly July 22, 2012
Presiding: Apostle John Welty 1 john 4: 7
Review : Again The Apostle John writing to those under his Stewardship whom he personally instructed in the apostles doctrine. He is talking to them about others who had gone out from them and deviated from the doctrine who no longer follow the doctrine and pattern but have gone out to follow another doctrine that is agreeable to themselves.
1Jn 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
The apostle is identifying the record by foundation knowledge the record and pattern that have been laid for faith to follow. Loving one another is the record that works with the Spirit of God and is the record of Christ.
When we talk about love we are not talking about giving expression to our emotions. The more passion we can poor into this is not the love of God. The love of God is an expression of His virtues.
When apostles write about the love of God they talk about the expression of Gods virtues it does not spring up from the flesh or the soil.
Jeremiah 6: 13 â€“ Everyone giving into covetousness they were reading from the scriptures and finding that which was in themselves as a pattern for faith.
Seducing spirits aid in helping set another record for faith in those who look to themselves to complete themselves by the passions of the flesh.
Speaking in tongues helps one to not follow faithlessness, and avoid the false record of the precept that brings no witness of the Spirit nor the substance of His virtue.
Everyone that loves â€“ everyone that expresses the virtues of His record that is concealed in the bosom of the Father. We are not speaking of with an expression of ourselves. They speak of their own Christ but it is not the voice of God. God speaks with one voice, one knowledge and one doctrine.
By the stewardship God has restored his true doctrine and there is building again of the increase of His kingdom. This is through the love of God that we see this increase taking place.
â€¦every one that loveth is born of God, this is the offspring of the Spirit those born of God by the apostles doctrine and power of the spirit confirms Christ in this record.
This is where we have our fellowship by the record and witness coming together and in this intimacy we bear fruit giving expression to the virtue of God and increase taking place.
This knowledge of Christ is the knowledge from above we do not eat with the lips but we eat in the spirit by the record and witness that brings forth something new from above. This was seen in the manna from above given to the children of Israel.
The false religious system they look back to Moses of the physical things. God has called us to glory and virtue to increase in His likeness there is nothing physical here.
..every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. God determined to know us only through this process of fruit bearing. So he examines state of conscience for the reflection of Christ and the fruit of his virtue in the soul.
By this pattern we identify Christ in regeneration. This pattern becomes the renewing of the mind. And we identify Christ receiving his fruit to be born of Him.
Jn 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. They withhold the exchange of the substance of Charity. They murder their brother by withholding life.
..knoweth not God; for God is love. They have no expression of the love of God but only sin and death. They do not understand charity nor work with the Apostles Doctrine that provides charity in the soul as we work with this knowledge. There is cleansing and healing as we build the altar of Christ. The altar is built within the heart and itâ€™s the whole stones that does not give forth Adams perspective and by this there is growth in Gods glory and in His virtue. There is no increase apart from the priesthood preached by his stewardship.
To say God has not required anything it is a false spirit of Antichrist that is void of responsibility, God has provided restrictions by covenant for responsibility.
1Jn 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
In this pattern God brought forth Christ who came in the flesh to set the record for those in the flesh so we could follow him. So then how can we know him if he is holy, separate, undefiled separate from sinners and higher than the heavens. Those then who deny this pattern deny that he came in the flesh for this work of cleansing, and those who deny this pattern are influenced of the Spirit of antichrist, for this pattern is the evidence of Christ in us.
This then, by this pattern in us, Christ can search for this fruit in the heart and we can have tangible evidence of his work in our heart.
We follow this pattern and this pattern is not found in the fundamental facts. It is in this record it is not in the record of miracles. We follow after that record that has no profit for flesh. Christ in his life suffered in the flesh and we are called to suffer in the flesh that we may reign with Him.
We are exchanging charity for this is a whole different substance that was provided for us for our faith.
An apostle is a witness of this pattern, " you shall be my witnesses ".
Only of the things he valued and has provided for our faith. He increases this substance in us and our heart is enlarged in us for the increase of his kingdom to us. If we deviate from this pattern then we work with another spirit. This is what we showed you do not go to another pattern we all, even apostles have to follow this pattern. They submit to this pattern for Christ submitted himself to this pattern for our sake, that we may have the pattern while we are still in the flesh in this body.
This mystery in Christ cannot be unlocked by your own reason but you must have the apostles foundation laid within you to gain experience in this mystery by His knowledge.
1Jn 4:10 Herein is love, in this pattern God provided the lamb. Our propitiation for our benefit not in our place. To preach in our place is the doctrine of substitution to say there is no responsibility yet God set terms for our redemption. The tools have been sanctified for our faith means our use of these things is what God has provided for our faith. This is how Christ mediates the covenant to cleanse us. People who do not understand this doctrine do anything they think to glorify God but it is by this record of propitiation not substitution that you advance the interest of God within you. Others who avoid this pattern follow their own interest for their glory.
Christ bears the iniquity not by becoming sin but by bearing the process of redemption in his mediation of your sin. He cleanses as you use the tools that are sprinkled with his blood. This is where your responsibility comes in to use the tools as he provided instruction in this pattern by his apostles.
Apostles preach that we die daily for it is contrary to our intuition contrary to our flesh and by this record we come into agreement with God. This is what he said of David he follows after mine own heart not glorifying David but because he was following after God after the pattern and design of the Father that was revealed to him. For the Spirit will follow only the tracks of His truth, and we do not select carnally but follow after the revelation of what God has revealed to us, that we may separate ourselves from darkness.
The world chooses other things that they have approved of that are not sanctified by God, and he will say I do not know you for you continue to work with the system of darkness.
1Jn 4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. The apostle is speaking of the law of reciprocation, its grace before faith not faith before grace. We increase as we experience Christ by this record we learn to work and discern and test the spirit so we will know we are able to exercise our faith.
Prophecies by the Body of Christ.
Melissa Welty The expression of Christ is in the Lord's passion. Not measured carnally but revealed spiritually - being born of Him in Spirit and in Truth.
Blessed are they whose anchor is the altar of Christ, for as we prophecy we are removed from the wisdom of man and strengthened in the fear of God.
Apostle Theodore ?*The foundational knowledge follows the record and the witness comfirms the pattern of Christ but the fundamental knowledge follows the record of the flesh and the witness which is of another spirit confirms the pattern of the soil.
*The many voices in the word speak of many patterns for faith but the voice of God is like thunder and we speak of one pattern for faith Christ.
JanĂ© Odendaal Charity is Gods chain of love that is fitly joined together by that which every joint supplies
The voice of God does not agree to disagree but speaks by the same spirit revealing the same truth that we must conform to.
Beth Allen Our faith is removed from the false patterns of this world,as we remain rooted in Christ,bearingforth fruit as we consistantly use the sanctified tools in covenant.
Holly DeRuiter The knowledge of Christ brings unity, while the false knowledge of the world brings division and plunders thy neighbor.
Maryna Elthia Jacobs The just daily dine upon the table of the Lord and withold not charity from his brother but build one another up in the most holy faith
Jerod Golding There is no increase apart from the priesthood for we must have active participation with those things which possess His Christ to exchange substance with Him as we commune at His table.
The unclean spirit confirms Adam as he pursues patterns which are agreeable to Him but the Spirit of the Lord keeps us tethered to the throne as we follow the pattern of Christ.
The false teachers preach lies for they are without truth. The blind lead the blind but those with the eyes of grace follow those who have whole truth which guides us to walk and please the Lord.
Maryna Elthia Jacobs God share His thoughts with those who keep the terms and conditions of His covenant
Casey Ringer â€śThe beloved are those that see God and fellowship with Him by faith.â€ť
Pete Bolduc It is impossible to be holy from the perspective of darkness. Blessed are those who enter into the light of Truth for they are deemed holy for they follow the pattern of Christ, the first holy Son of God.
Tutu Ndhlovu Jesus is the lamb God has provided for our atonement.
We only use those things God has provided for our faith to build with the Spirit.
Kay Renfrow Emotions and feelings are tied to our own record by the flesh, spoiling our expressions of love to the father, but when we submit in faith our conscience is cleared by truth, our love sings forth through our charity.
As we follow the record of Christ the world will know us by our fruits and by our agreement in truth following the pattern God set for us through His Son Jesus Christ, therefore showing there is unity from one voice which is God, loving our brothers as we love Him.
Apostle DeidrĂ© Linden â€śThe beloved of God speak forth the language of a pure conscience in charityâ€ť
Deborah Florio Setting order to our lives by way of the moral code does not make our faith perfect. Faith is perfect when joined to the activity of the covenant.
It is impossible to please God and despise His dignities for it is through apostolic governance that we receive of God those things He sanctified for our faith.
