Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. Romans 12:1.
He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves. John 14:9-11.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Fruitful in good works. The most fruitful life ever lived was that of Jesus. It is true that from everlasting to everlasting He is God, but when He took flesh and became man, He emptied Himself of His powers as God, and took the form of a slave and was obedient, obedient unto death, a man like you in all things but sin. He was not born of Adam’s corrupted seed but of the imperishable seed of the Word, as Adam was in the beginning, but He was one hundred percent man and one hundred percent God, but on earth when He dwelt among you as one like you He only operated as a man. A man who totally gave His life to Me.
And why am I telling you this? So that you can learn the MOST important lesson about living a fruitful, joyful, amazing life. And now in the midst of My teaching on living a fruitful life I set the hidden treasure, that if you understand it, you will never see your life in the same way you have been up till now again. This is Life Lesson No. 6: “Fruitful with God’s Works,” and it is about releasing My life into the earth through you.
People say I am sovereign, which I AM, but then they say that everything happening on earth is therefore My Will, which is incorrect. If My Will were being done on earth then nothing contrary to My Will would be done. And yet you see murders, lies, stealing, violence, abuse, adultery, sexual immorality, perversion, and the like going on everywhere. I do not Will what I tell you are sins and against My Will. A house divided against itself cannot stand. So obviously there is something else going on here. And it is your dominion authority, what you choose is what goes on in your life and in the earth. I put before you life and death, the blessing and the curse and tell you to choose life that you and your descendants may live. That is what I told the first man and woman but they chose death. And that was that. But that is obviously NOT My Will.
Please be aware of what you have. In the beginning I gave mankind dominion over the earth. I said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Genesis 1:26. “The heavens are the heavens of the LORD, but the earth He has given to the children of men.” Psalm 115:16. That means that it is man’s will that is being done on earth. And if you will join your will with My Will then I can act in you, with you, for you, and through you into the earth. But if you speak against Me and do not do My Words then you shut Me out, as Adam did.
Thus for My Will to be released and done in the earth, I need a person to join and partner with Me because that is the only way I can act in your daily lives on earth. If you give your life to Me and come under My jurisdiction as your LORD, then I can act in all situations for your protection, deliverance, salvation, and shower My blessings on you so that they overwhelm and overtake you in every direction. And there is much more, I can also get My goodness, My glory, and My saving help into the world through you, with you, and in you. My Will gets done on earth as it is in Heaven. And there is no sickness, disability, crime, pain, storms, or mourning in Heaven. My promises to you are “yes” in Jesus, and once you take Him as Lord, they are “yes” to the world through you.
Now I tell you that as Jesus is, so are you in this world. Let Me show you what I mean.
For Me to act on earth it has to be through someone who has faith in Me and My Word and loves Me enough to want to give Me their authority to use for My purposes, that is, to let Me act through and in them using their dominion authority and give it entirely over to My Will with no deviation into sin. Jesus did this.
He let My Will prosper in His hands. Isaiah 53:10. He gave His hands to Me so My hand could stretch out to heal, stop storms, and raise the dead through His. He gave Me his tongue to speak My Words in encouragement, edification, comfort, and exhortation. He told you He never spoke on just His own initiative but spoke My Words and did My works. Jesus told Philip at the Passover meal the night He was betrayed, “The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works.” John 14:9-11.
He gave Me His eyes to see as I did so He could perceive the broken hearted and all in need of help and heal them. He gave Me His ears so that He could hear the cries of the poor and answer. He let Me live through Him, do My works in and through Him, and say My Words in and through Him with no hindrance.
And what an amazing, fruitful life, filled with glory and the divine, He lived in His sojourn on the earth. We were partners. He lived in Me and I lived in Him and together we brought My Kingdom to the earth wherever He walked. He was His own unique person and said I was greater than He (which in His humanity emptied of His powers as God, I was greater). But He so opened and released Himself to Me that He could say that in seeing Him you saw Me at work and in hearing Him you heard Me speaking. And the more He opened Himself the greater the works I showed Him.
We had so much joy seeing the crippled walking, the blind seeing, the dead raised, abundant provision where there had been lack, beauty where there had been ashes, and lives made whole. Shalom and the blessing followed wherever He walked for we walked together. He loved living like that on the earth and I loved being able to act without hindrance in the earth as I do in Heaven. Finally I had found a man truly after My own heart who would do My every desire.
From the beginning, after Adam walked out of My plan, I looked and looked to find people who would perfectly act with Me so My goodness could be released in your world. I found people who would listen and partner with Me like Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Joseph, and Moses, and Joshua. I said David was a man after My own heart because he would do everything I wanted him to do. He let Me act through him to bring about My Will on earth. And, of course, the prophets took My Words and direction to the people. But none of the people I have mentioned were totally without hindrance. Even David deviated from his desire to do My Will and seriously fell into sin. You cannot serve two masters and be effective to bring My Will into earth.
Never think of yourself as separated from Me. A branch is not separate from the vine. The branch is NOT the vine, but it is part of it. It is empowered by and lives with the life of the vine and produces fruit that has the character of the vine. And the branch cannot produce fruit apart from the vine but neither can the vine produce fruit without the branch. Do you understand? To live a truly fruitful life, you must be letting Me release My life in and through you to the world, but without you, I cannot produce any fruit in the world either. For My glory to fill the earth with healing, deliverance, signs, wonders, miracles, and good deeds I must find those willing to use their humanity, that is, their dominion authority over the earth, for the purposes of My Will. In other words, to let Me take dominion of the earth through them. Just like Jesus did. To allow Me to stretch out My hand through yours in mighty works of loving providence, deliverance, healing, and salvation. It is you who must let Me free to bless you and everyone on earth through you. And that is what I have been asking each person from the beginning. If you recall, that is what I asked Abraham when I first spoke to him. Genesis 12:1-3. And he responded, he left his old life that he lived without Me and followed Me to give His life to be blessed and to release My blessing to all mankind through Him.
Now, consider the words of Jesus, prophesied from old and confirmed anew, when Jesus came into the world, He said, “Sacrifice and offering You have not desired, but a body You have prepared for Me. In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have taken no pleasure. Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come, in the scroll of the book it is written of Me, to do Your will, O God is My delight.’” Hebrews 10:5-7; Psalm 40:6-8. Do you see? A body I had prepared for Him. There was no other way I had authority to act on earth. I was in Christ reconciling the world to Myself and I have made you also ministers of reconciliation. Let Me be in you as I was in Christ so you too can reconcile those in the world to Me. 2 Corinthians 5:18-21.
I think now you will understand the meaning when I urge you, by My mercies, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to Me, which is your spiritual service of worship. Present your bodies to Me for service. Romans 12:1. That is allowing Me to use the dominion authority inherent in your humanity over the earth so that My Will can be done through, in and with you on the earth. So do not be conformed to this world, or you will block My actions on the earth, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may approve what My will is, that which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2.
You will note that I say your body offered for My Kingdom work is acceptable to Me because of My mercies. I cannot look upon sin and approve it. My eyes are too pure. But I put all your sins and offenses, all your lawless deeds, on My Son and looked away from Him (Remember on the cross He cried, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me?”) so that I can look on you with no division between us. He removed that hindrance that kept Me from you behind the veil. He made you holy, blameless and beyond reproach in My sight so that you can come into My presence and be filled with My grace, My very divine nature, with confidence. You can give your life to Me in a divine and human partnership that will authorize Me to do the works of glory that I long to do upon the earth through YOU!
Do you see what your life could be? At the very top level, acting together with Me as ONE as Jesus did, and you participate in this great life through, with and in Jesus, as His body on earth, for there is no other way you can come to Me in sinless purity but through and in Jesus. By this you know that you are in Christ: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked. 1 John 2:5-6. And that was totally given over to Me in that He let Me take the helm of His life and turn it where I wanted to go to release My goodness. For you know of Jesus of Nazareth, how I anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for I was with Him. Acts 10:38.
Let the same mindset that was in Jesus be in you (for I have given you the mind of Christ, that is the anointing), Philippians 2:5; 1 Corinthians 2:16, He emptied Himself of selfish desires and ambition for His own glory and lived for Mine, to do My Will alone.
And Jesus gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the believers for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until you ALL attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-13. Let Me show you how this works so you can all grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, Ephesians 4:15.
Do you, like Jesus, just have one desire in life and that is for Me to be able to use your dominion authority which I have given to men over the earth to work through you what I want to do in the earth? That is what I asked Moses to do and at first he gave Me so many excuses of why he could not. Same with Gideon. But Jesus said nothing but “YES,” that to do My Will was His delight. He is the perfect example of how to live in union with Me, so keep your eyes fixed on Him, the author and finisher of your faith.
I cannot act on the earth unless there is someone who will let Me use their hands and mouth to do and say what I want to release into the earth. I had such a wonderful, joyful time with Jesus partnering with Me as a man on earth so that I could reach out through Him to heal everyone who came, multiply provisions, embrace and bless the children, and go to the Cross to die for your sins. I was in Christ reconciling the world to Myself. Will you let Me do the same in you and with you?
Present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to Me, which is your spiritual service of worship. Let My power flow through you to do the good I so long to do in the earth but cannot until you authorize Me to come in. And Jesus shows you just how wide and high and deep are the precious and magnificent things I want to do in each person’s life. I AM the LORD your healer. Please release Me to do that work on earth by giving your authority to Me. Do NOT give your authority to the devil, as Adam did. For just as I need a man to work with Me to do what I long to do in the earth, so does the devil. Do not give the devil any place. Submit to Me and resist the devil! He will have to flee if you are working with Me.
Take hold of the life that is life indeed. Put off the old man and put on the new creation in Christ that you are. Jesus wants to continue the fruitful and amazing life He lived on earth in you. Your relationship with Me should be just as His was on earth as a man among you. One. In seeing you people should see Me in action. Jesus came forth from My bosom and explained and disclosed Me to men by His life, so should your life be.
If you keep doubting Me, accusing Me, begging Me to do what you need done, you are blocking everything I am trying to do and get into the world through you. You are grieving the holy Spirit and frustrating My grace.
Listen to the way Jesus spoke of Me. He said that none was good but Me alone. He prayed that My Will would be done and not His. He worked for My glory and not His own. He was about My business from a young age—not His own affairs. He made time to step aside and pray to Me. He made My business His business and oh! what a joy He had in it! He rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and praised Me as LORD of Heaven and earth who had revealed these things to the simple that were hidden from the learned and the clever.
Here is the prayer that you could say to Me if this teaching has awakened your heart: “Take my hands as Yours to heal and restore, to multiply and bless, to give beauty and to give rest. Take my tongue as Yours to speak the Word in prophecy, to encourage, edify and exhort, to save lives for all eternity. Take my eyes as Yours so I see as you do the ones whose hearts are broken and are so in need of You. Take my ears as Yours to hear the cries of the poor. Live your life through me as you did in Jesus without hindrance to the plans you have for me. Let my heart be Yours to channel in your way and to be filled with Your Spirit as I raise my voice in praise. Let my thoughts be yours to direct and purify. Take the reins, O LORD, take the helm and steering wheel of my life to do again on earth your delightful perfect Will. Have your joy made full in me as You set the captives free, give the blind sight, make cripples walk, heal and make whole those oppressed by the devil, and have your way in the world through me.”
You can be a vessel of My life poured out on the world. Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and some to honor and some to dishonor. Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from the worldly ways of the sons of disobedience to obedience and honor for My Word and desires to set his or her life aside for Me, for My use, he or she will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to Me, prepared for every good work. 2 Timothy 2:20-21. And I can go to work to make your life beautiful, the most beautiful life ever lived, as we partner together to bless every person on earth. Like I did with Jesus. And that is the life of good deeds I prepared for you IN HIM in advance. Ephesians 2:10.
I love you. Will you answer My call? Will you give the entire body of Christ this message? Think of how it would be if every believer together did this! The Body of Christ would be functioning at maximum power releasing My glory into the earth. And the knowledge of My glory would cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. Why? Everyone would know the truth of who I really am from the least to the greatest for in seeing you they would be seeing Me. And that is doing the works of Jesus and greater works. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 16:24-26. And OH! What an exciting and fruitful life it will be. And do not count it as loss, for when you honor and glorify Me, I honor and glorify you. Like I did for Jesus. And you are joint heirs with Him.
But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Philippians 3:7-8.
