We are Marvelously made

WE ARE MARVELOUSLY MADE

 FORMED BY THE MOST AWESOME GOD IN OUR MOTHER’S WOMB

“Oh yes, glory Halleluiah, thank you Heavenly Father; you shaped me first inside, then out; YOU FORMED ME IN MY MOTHER’S WOMB. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am MARVELOUSLY MADE! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; you know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, the days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.” Psalm 139:13-14 (MSG)

All that I am and all that I will ever be, God is. God created me in his own image, and likeness. Everything about me God knew before I was even formed in my mother’s womb. I know, without a shadow of doubt, that I am MARVELOUSLY MADE.

Now when we look in our Bibles, we see a picture of just how God begin the process in Genesis chapter 1 verse 2. In the (a) verse the Bible says this “let us make man in our own image, according to our likeness.” This is a very important statement, because God spoke with His team before we were created in our mother’s womb, how he would design His most important creature, and then bring them into the physical realm of life.  How awesome, a God this is, that we now serve.

When I think about how MARVELOUSLY MADE you and I really are, I see a picture of a newborn baby, in my mind’s eye. This baby is in his mother’s womb. In a speck of watery material smaller than that over the dot of this i, all the future characteristics of this child are programmed, the color of his skin, eyes and hair, the shape of his facial features, the natural abilities he will have. All that the child will be physically and mentally is contained the in germ form in that fertilized egg. From it will develop: …60 trillion cells, 100,000 miles of nerve fiber, 60,000 miles of vessels carrying blood around the body, 250 bones, to say nothing of joints, ligaments and muscles.

Lord I thank you because you formed my inward parts; you covered me while I was still in my mother’s womb. Today Lord I give you the praise, the glory, and the entire honor, because without you there will be no me. All glory belongs to you and you alone, thank you Lord, thank you, thank you, thank you, for you deserve all the praise and glory that my mind can muster up. I am just a small part of this great universe.

Today, as I look towards the heels, from which all my blessings flow, a think of the marvelous creation that you accomplished in my mother’s womb. While I was in my mother’s womb, you formed my inward parts; each one a marvel of divine engineering. I think of my brain, for instance, with its capacity for recording facts, sounds, odors, sites, touch, pain; with its ability to recall; with its power to make computations; with its seemingly endless flair for making decisions and solving problems.

When I think of who I am and what I am in this vast universal, I know without a shadow of doubt that I am a marvelous created man. Sometimes I stop and think of God’s careful planning in the creation of my spirit, my soul, and body. How precious, are his thoughts, his attention to the minutest detail. Each cell almost without exception knows its role in carrying out design a purpose for which the welfare of the body as a whole is so marvelous made.

Now in conclusion, I refer you to Psalms 66 verses one through five, which reads as follow. Make a joyful shout to God, all the Earth! Sing out the honor of his name; make His praise glorious. Say to God, how awesome is your works! Through the greatness of your power, your enemies shall submit themselves to you. All the Earth shall worship you and sing praises to you; they shall sing praises to your name. And see the works of God; he is awesome in his doing towards the sons of man.

Truly I say to you, these powerful words that keep rolling around in my head; what an AWESOME GOD we serve, thank you Heavenly Father for I know that I AM MARVELOUSLY MADE!

Written by Neil Flesch

One statement is enough for a mature and evolved spirit to understand the immortal importance of a sentence, of a written line, due to its indestructible invaluable content that teaches how the spirit should act to develop the inner God, or to turn into Spirit and Truth, or to realize in it the teachings of the Bible – YOU ARE GODS.

There are people who devour books, searching for religions, sects and banners, listening to the incarnate and the discarnate, but they do not change inwardly and do not really blossom… They are like mediocrity that goes around the PERFECTION, without ever reaching it…
The Exemplary Word warned these people, by saying: “The Kingdom of God is inside each one, it does not come with external signs.”

Therefore, those who do not know how to LOOK FOR THEMSELVES, and have not FOUND THEMSELVES yet, will have to search high and low, hovering unhappily, in the kingdom of emptiness and painful doubts.

An old initiatic saying teaches: “The good disciple awaits doing good.”
The Exemplary Word also taught: “Upon your patience you shall build your souls.”
These abstracts say to the immature, to those empty spirits: “Learn how to run to your inner self, because it is there that God has placed His Divine Virtues, which, when blossomed, will make you a TOTAL ONE, GOD IN GOD, BECAUSE NO ONE WILL BE CHILD OF GOD ETERNALLY.”

However, let us remember these wise words: “One word to those who understand it is worth a whole speech to those who do not understand it.”

All the best.

With love,

Neil

THE UNIVERSE IS LIVING THROUGH YOU

THE UNIVERSE IS LIVING THROUGH YOU

MAN AND THE UNIVERSE

MAN AND THE UNIVERSE

Good Morning my brothers and sisters, it is Monday the beginning of a brand new week, a moment and time for us to be lifted up and allow our thoughts to grow as we prosper and come into the full understanding of who God is, who we really are and who we are in God as we live in this physical world and allow our thoughts to reside in the spiritual ream of the Universe.

Now listen to what Jesus told us and be enlightened, He said, “I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation is intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing.”  (John 15:5 MSG)

Therefore, let us understand that the universe is one gigantic being and we are all parts of the same being. The universe is living and expressing itself through all parts of itself. We were created as part of the universal work that is in operation. Therefore the work that we came to do is not our own but the work of the universe. Everything we need to experience a life full of joy, fulfillment and abundance is present when we walk the path that the universe has for us. It is only when we walk our own path that we experience lack, frustration and fear.

We might think that we are doing our own thing when we try to walk a different path that the universe wants us to walk. But we are not really doing what our true selves wants to do. It is because the universe is not something outside of us telling us what to do. The universe is us! The universe is your true self. You are bigger than you may realize. In the larger scheme of things, you are just a portion of the bigger you which is the universe, and you are here to do what the total you has purposed for you to do.

You and the universe are one, and when you know that, you will understand the true meaning of what it means to be in divine harmony with all that is. Everything you do has an effect on everything else that exists. There is never one thought or action of yours that is insignificant no matter how small it is. Think of your thoughts and actions as the thoughts and actions of the universe itself. Every single thought and action you make affects the whole universal you. You will never again think small about yourself.

The universe is unlimited and infinite. When you know that you are the universe, you will know that your true nature is unlimited and infinite. We only experience limitation and lack when we separate ourselves from ourselves. A branch that is cut off from the vine loses its source of supply and therefore it withers and dies. Since the universe is abundant and unlimited, all we have to do is to go with the flow and we will experience the joy of being provided in every moment and transcending limitations that we face.

TRAIN THE BODY MIND AND SOUL FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH

TRAIN THE BODY MIND AND SOUL FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH

My Brothers and Sisters the time is upon us to get our physical bodies and spiritual minds in tip top condition so God can use us in His Kingdom Building Work.

It is no accident that Paul used an athletic metaphor to describe the pursuit of godliness.  Paul knows there was the potential for victory or loss, so to assure our victory in this spiritual contest, he warned us to exercise.  In 1Timothy 4:7 he used the verb train, which is the Greek word gumnazo, which is where we get our word gymnasium.  The word speaks of not just training, but of “the focused discipline behind the training.”  Discipline demands commitment and consistency.  You will never become godly by accident-an attitude of discipline must precede the pursuit of godliness.

The attitude of one, who would be godly, is first and foremost, one of focus.  Satan has any number of distractions waiting in the wings to keep us off the track toward godliness.  Some of them are even good things–but not better than becoming like God.  The way to keep our focus is to, as the book of Hebrews encouraged us, “fix our eyes on Jesus” (12:2NIV).

Put simply having a goal and focus is not enough.  Physical exercise requires sustained, rigorous effort.  It is not easy.  Spiritual exercise is no different.  Displaying the character of Christ is work.  It is the result of making a conscious decision to live your life based on who you are in Christ.  Godliness is an act of volition.  You must choose to walk, live, and act godly demands personal responsibility and commitment, which grow out of knowing who God is and knowing how committed He is to you.  Once you understand that, then Paul said exercise.

But be aware that exercise is never done in the actual competition.  It only prepares you for the competition.  Once the contest starts, it’s too late to get into shape.  When the bell rings or the first gun goes off, it’s too late to try and get in fifty crunches or a set of leg lifts.  After the coin is tossed and positions are taken, this is not the time for skipping rope or jumping jacks.  You have to be in shape before the game starts to have a chance at winning.

Spiritual exercise begins with Bible study, prayer, meditation, and fasting.  It continues when we practice instant obedience to God’s will.  We expand that exercise by allowing God to reign in our lives.  Spiritual exercise is to be woven into the very fabric and foundation of our lives.  That requires commitment, discipline, perseverance, and long suffering.  We only grow to be the people God wants us to be when we allow our exercise to secure our foundations and stretch our abilities.

 

CHOOSE WELL YOUR WORDS

Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth President of th...

ABRAHAM LINCOLN THE 16th PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

The dictionary is full of words.  It is how words are used that makes the big difference.  Words can lift us into heaven or lower us into hell…  “Good words anoint a man, ill words kill a man,” wrote John Florio.

Words sung in a lullaby can put a babe to sleep; words of hatred and passion can arouse a mob to violence.

Words have both the explosive power of a nuclear bomb and the soothing effect of oil on troubled waters.  They can start a war or they can keep the peace.

Your knowledge of words is to use them creatively; to select and arrange them to inspire the mind, stir the heart, lift the spirit…

Words of encouragement fan the spark of genius into the flame of achievement.  Legend tells us that Lincoln’s dying mother called her small son to her bedside and whispered, “Be somebody, Abe!”

Words are magnets that draw back to us the thoughts they express.  “Beware, beware!” warned the Hindu mystic.  “What goes forth from you will come back to you.”

Words are the pegs on which we hang creative ideas.  We must put our dreams into eloquent words that others may be persuaded to help us build them into realities.  This proverb of Solomon says it well:  “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.”

Words of faith, hope and courage lift men upward.  Negative words drag men downward.  “Nerve us up with incessant affirmatives,” counseled Emerson; “don’t waste yourself in rejection, nor bark against the bad, but chant the beauty of the good.  When that is spoken which has a right to be spoken, the chatter and the criticism will stop.”

Words are symbols of man’s finest qualities.  Words such as valiant, radiant, triumphant, vibrant, heroic… These are words to live by!

Words are a dynamic force for changing men and nations.  Words of power burst in man’s mind with a great light, to illuminate his thoughts and show him the way.

Choose well your words!  They will go marching down the years in the lives you touch!

IS THERE LIFE FOR MANKIND AFTER DEATH (PART 2)

IS THERE LIFE FOR MANKIND AFTER DEATH THE NEXT LESSON

THE TOMB COULD NOT CONTAIN HIM (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

In our last lesson we concluded with this last paragraph, “Our hope of deliverance from sin in this world (see Romans 6:4, 11, 12) and the reality of life in the next (1 Corinthians 15:17-23) are dependent upon the resurrection of Jesus. The incarnation of God’s Son, His sinless life and vicarious death, would have availed nothing if He had been kept a prisoner of death. The saints of all ages would remain in their graves, sealed forever, if Christ had not broken the power of death and come forth to immortal life. And Christians would have been “false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised” (1 Corinthians 15:15)!”

Do we understand what this mean for our new life?  Now I encourage you to pause your reading right here.  Go back and read this paragraph again, meditate on it, then pick up your Bible, read, study and meditate on these three scriptures before plowing deeper into this lesson.  We want you to fully understand and comprehend the depth and scope of these words and the fact that our new life depends totally on the resurrection of Jesus.

Now that you have read, studied and meditated on these scriptures, let’s move on and see how we are going to fit into OUR NEW SPIRITUAL BODY.  This should excite you greatly; it sends chills up my spine just to think how God has seen everything in the future and made plans for our eternal life cycle.

The Bible provides us with much hope for a future life, and Paul shares that hope with us, that there is truly LIFE AFTER DEATH in (2 Corinthians 5:1-2).  In these two beautiful verses we find these very important words: “For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven.”

In the fifteenth chapter of I Corinthians, Paul again preaches to those who have no faith in the LIFE AFTER DEATH. This wonderful chapter is used by the majority of MINISTERS to bring comfort and faith to those who have been bereaved by the loss of their loved ones. “It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.”  This should get you excited and make you want to shout and thank God for all he has done to plan for your continuation of LIFE AFTER DEATH.  If you truly believe in the word of God, there should be no doubt whatsoever in your mind about what God can and will do.

However, we discover in the days of old, man had no such hope for a LIFE AFTER DEATH.    During the old dispensation and all through the Old Testament, to him the grave ended all. We find such discouragement when we read the ninth chapter of Ecclesiastes, the fifth verse, where the statement is made, “For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.”  As we have moved forward into the teachings of Jesus and understanding his DEATH and RESURRECTION, we now know and can rejoice in a future hope of LIFE AFTER DEATH.

Let us pause this lesson right here and pick it up on the other side of midnight.  You must return again and again to truly understand just how greatly the DEATH and RESSURECTION of JESUS CHRIST affects us all in a very profound way.

I encourage you to think deeply on the Scriptures because there you will find the truth of God’s word and what he wants you to know and understand about his son’s LIFE, DEATH and RESSURECTION.  I have ministered to you on this day from a position of PEACE, POWER, PURPOSE and PROSPERITY.  I remain your brother in JESUS CHRIST, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER.

IS THERE LIFE FOR MANKIND AFTER DEATH (PART 1

IS THERE LIFE FOR MANKIND AFTER DEATH?

THE LIGHT THAT LEADS US FROM DARKNESS TO THE BRIGHTNESS OF GOD’S GLORY                       (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

We begin today’s lesson not with one question, but two. The first question is this,  “IS THERE LIFE FOR MANKIND AFTER DEATH?”  The second question is, “IS YOUR FAITH BASED ON THE WORD OF GOD ARE SOMETHING ELSE?”  I consider both questions important for the overall discussion of the Death and Resurrection of JESUS CHRIST.

Therefore, as we begin our forward look towards Easter and the celebration of the life, death and resurrections of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I find that there is no better time than now to ask these two very important questions, and have you the reader to examine your soul for the answer to a question that so many of us refuse to even consider bringing up in our family discussions.  I find this to be a sad commentary especially for believers.

Now as I was doing research for my book on “LIFE AFTER DEATH,” I came across this quote from another great writer, and it said, “Christianity,” “is a religion of the open tomb.” Keep that thought in mind as you study this lesson on the resurrection. The founder of Christianity could not be kept in the prison house of death. An angel rolled the great stone from the door of Joseph’s new tomb, and the Son of God came forth triumphant over death. “I am the resurrection and the life,” He said (John 11:25).

The apostle Paul argues that the Christian faith stands or falls upon the fact of the resurrection of Christ.

“If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised, and if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith” (1 Corinthians 15:13, 14).

Now let us understand this one very important truth, and that is this; Jesus came to this Earth to teach mankind a particular lesson; and if He was destined to become the Savior of mankind, then the greatest lesson which He could have taught man was that of faith; faith in his God and faith in a life after death.

By His very own death, Christ Jesus must bring to man faith, and the belief in a LIFE AFTER DEATH. He preached immortality, and to further impress this fact upon humanity, He must go through the throes of death in order to return to life and bring to man proof of an after death life. To accomplish this He appeared to His beloved disciples in His  spiritual body. In I Corinthians, 15:6, Paul says, “After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once: of whom the greater part remains unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.” He walked and talked to them so that they might believe that what He had preached, the immortality of the soul, was a fact and that after man has laid aside his physical body, he still lives in a finer and more ethereal body.

Our hope of deliverance from sin in this world (see Romans 6:4, 11, 12) and the reality of life in the next (see 1 Corinthians 15:17-23) are dependent upon the resurrection of Jesus. The incarnation of God’s Son, His sinless life and vicarious death, would have availed nothing if He had been kept a prisoner of death. The saints of all ages would remain in their graves, sealed forever, if Christ had not broken the power of death and come forth to immortal life. And Christians would have been “false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised” (1 Corinthians 15:15)!”

We encourage you to open your mind and think deeply upon this lesson and the ones to come.  Our hope is that you who have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior find some comfort in these words as you continue to study with us here at VINE AND BRANCH WORLD MINISTRIES.  If you want SALVATION for your soul, you can have it right here and now.  Just stroll to the top of this page and click on SALVATION IS FREE, read it, accept it, and come to know Jesus as your Lord and Savior. There is HOPE in a continuous life beyond this life when you accept Jesus as the only one that can provide you with it.  We have presented this lesson to you today from a position of peace, power, purpose and prosperity.  I remain your brother in Jesus Christ, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!

Now let us end this lesson for today with this short video clip.  Please return tomorrow for another great lesson on LIFE AFTER DEATH!
