God speaks to His people!

God created the universe with speaking . . . “Let there be . . . ”

Today, through Jesus Christ, He lives in you. How do you learn to hear Him speaking into your heart, and really know it’s Him?

Kingdom Faith Ministries International is devoted to helping God’s people learn to hear and obey His still small voice. Deuteronomy 8 declares that God’s purpose in having His people wander in the wilderness for 40 years was to learn to hear and live by every word that proceeded from His mouth.

God is still speaking, and like the Israelites, we must learn how to hear Him with confidence and precision. Are you eager to hear what the Lord Jesus Christ is speaking today to those who have discovered how to find Him in the secret place and drink from His fountain of Living Water? He will invite you to sit on His throne if you overcome in the pursuit of hearing His voice (Revelation 3:21).

Walking in the Footsteps of Jesus Christ
Tuesday, May 21, 2019
Paul D. Norcross / Cheryl A. Elton

Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ? To live, speak, and function as He did while on the earth?

What quickly comes to mind may be His many miracles, or His powerful teaching through parables. But what if we looked at His operating focus? Were there specific strategies underlying His purpose?

Can we imitate the same?

Following are 5 key points from the Scriptures that give us insight into how the Son of God operated while on the earth:

1.   Jesus did nothing of Himself. 

“Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.” (John 5:19)

Nothing Jesus did originated from Himself; He only did what the Father showed Him to do. We see throughout the gospels His habit of close communion with God, by spending much time alone with the Father and in prayer. 

2.  Jesus didn’t seek to do His own will, but God’s will. 

“I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.” (John 5:30)

See also: John 6:38, 8:29, Matthew 26:39.

3.  Jesus spoke not from Himself, but only what God wanted Him to.

“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.”   (John 14:10)

See also: John 7:16, 8:26, 38.

4.  Jesus was mindful of who He was and where He came from.

“Jesus said to them, ‘If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me.’”  (John 8:42)

See also: John 16:28.

If we’re mindful of who we come from, we should be mindful of who we represent.

5.  Jesus never promoted self-glory but made sure God got glory.

“Have this attitude in yourselves, which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:5-11)

See also: John 8:53-54

Jesus “emptied himself” of all His reputation and the things due Him as the Son of God. He didn’t “toot his own horn,” but remained humble, allowing God to exalt Him. 

As Christians, we represent the Lord Jesus Christ on the earth today! It is our greatest privilege, challenge and opportunity to live as He lived; to show the world the love and power of our wonderful Heavenly Father.

What if we ask the Lord how to incorporate these principles each day? How exciting our days might become!

Starting the New Year Strong
Thursday, January 3, 2019
Cheryl A. Elton

A new year brings hope, a sense of new beginnings and better days. For many, it’s a time to redefine goals and sharpen our focus on what is truly important.

As Christians, perhaps now more than ever we need to stay strong in the Lord. 

“Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” (Ephesians 6:10)

This verse begins a section of scripture—Ephesians 6:10-17—which gives us the crucial reminder that at its core, life is spiritual. We’re to “put on” the armor of God to ready ourselves for the spiritual battle at hand, and to be victors in this life through Christ. 

The armor we’re told to put on is the: 

  • Belt of TRUTH
  • Breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • Sandals of PEACE
  • Shield of FAITH
  • Helmet of SALVATION
  • Sword of the Spirit—the WORD OF GOD

The armor of God is more than just a protective covering—it’s the very presence of Christ Himself. By putting on the armor of God, life becomes no longer about simply fulfilling our own desires, but allowing ourselves to be transformed into His likeness, so we may carry out His work in the world.

As the only offensive weapon on the list, the sword of the Spirit is significant! 

From the original Greek, verse 17 reads: “the sword of the Spirit is the word (rhema) of Christ.”  

rhema (word) is a “speaking.” This certainly includes the written word of God. In the gospels we see Jesus, when confronted by the devil, bolding proclaiming “It is written . . .” as He quotes from the Old Testament.

Most notably for us today, a rhema is also a speaking by the Holy Spirit into our Spirit—a revelation word for a specific situation in the moment. The rhema of Christ must be wielded like a sword—spoken out and acted upon—to yield the results God desires.

God has given us this magnificent imagery of the armor so we might draw near to Him and experience His presence and power—thereby enabling us to be victorious in the spiritual battles of life. 

The power of God is demonstrated by the rhema of Christ.

Perhaps our greatest goal for the new year should be to sharpen our swords—to spend more time in His presence, to learn to hear His voice as He speaks rhema words to us—and to proclaim His word, His power, and His love to the world around us greater than ever before.

At KFMI, we want to start the new year strong—strong in the Lord, equipped with the full armor of God—living day by day in His presence.
