Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such
as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the
righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all." -PSALM
34:18,19

We must learn sooner rather than later that discipleship is a
process of tearing down in order to build up. We cannot expect to
have a single mountaintop experience with the Lord and then assume
from henceforth the work of the Cross is completed in us. When we
are standing with the Lord in the New Jerusalem we may lay down the
Cross. Until then, we dare not entertain the thought that we have
already been made perfect. We must deny ourselves and take up the
Cross daily.

"Yours is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever. Amen."
-MATTHEW 6:13

There is a Remnant of called-out ones who have seen the Glory of
the Son and WILL seek the interests of God's Only Begotten One. In
a time when men solicit the glory and honor and power from one
another, there is a Holy Nation of priests and kings who will give
the Son the glory He deserves, declaring, "YOURS IS THE GLORY, we
will render to You, and to You alone, the glory due Your Name."

"We had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not
trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead." -2 CORINTHIANS
1:9

Know that Christ is not here to help you become a better person,
but to make you so weak in yourself and so sick of your own way
that you can do nothing but trust in Him to do what you at last
realize you cannot do. It does not matter if that something "we
cannot do" is save ourselves, control our temper, get along with
others, raise our children, or overcome a lustful habit. The course
is the same. After many attempts and failures we at last realize we
cannot, so we throw ourselves on the mercy of God and trust Him to
do what we cannot do.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven,
nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch and pray; for
you do not know when the time is... And what I say to you, I say to
all: Watch!" -MARK 13:32,33,37

The Kingdom may be near, at hand, at the door, even within; but it
has not come in its fullness until the King Himself returns. This
is the sense in which Jesus calls upon us to watch and pray for the
Kingdom to come. It is literally praying that the King will come
into the fullness of His Kingdom - not merely within the heart of
the individual believer, but in a tangible, visible, universal
sense that brings about the full recovery of the Heavenly Order
with Christ once more having the preeminence in all things.

"O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me;
nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will." -MATTHEW 26:39

His sweat mingled with His tears, and He wrestled with Himself
three times before He could settle the issue, but once it was
settled, He gave no resistance, and within a few hours everything
was accomplished.

Oh! That is where we are lacking today! How long will we kick and
struggle against the pricks? How long will we argue and complain
against God and resist His dealings with us? If we have to die in
order to truly live, let us be about the business of dying! If we
must be crucified in order to have Resurrection Life, then let us
just submit to it and get it over with!

"Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus..."-PHILEMON 1:1

It is a glorious thing to be the prisoner of the Lord, for in our
bonds we find liberty. In our weakness we find strength. In our
foolishness we find wisdom. In our poverty we find prosperity. By
losing everything we find everything. By giving up all things we
inherit all things. By accepting the sentence of death we find the
Life of the Lord.

Let us stretch forth our hands and allow Him to dress us and lead
us where He wishes us to go, in the way we would not choose for
ourselves, for that is the Narrow Way, and it is the path of
blessing, though it be disguised.

"'Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread
from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives
life to the world.' Then they said to Him, 'Lord, give us this
bread always.' And Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life.'"
-JOHN 6:32-35

The people were asking for Jesus to give them bread, but failed to
recognize that He Himself is the Bread of Life. They worked and
toiled for something which would perish, but were not willing to
receive the True Bread that would not perish.

The significance of the Lord Jesus is not that He can give us
bread, but that He is the Bread.

"He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for
themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again." -2
CORINTHIANS 5:15

With less of me, there will be more of Him in my life, so why would
I resist that? There should be less of me today than there was
yesterday, and there should be more of Him now than there was
before. If I will submit to Him today, then tomorrow there will be
yet a little more of Him and a little less of me. Praise God!
Spiritual growth is not stronger anointing, greater power, or
increased knowledge. Spiritual growth is "He must increase, but I
must decrease" (John 3:30).

"'Who do you say that I am?' Simon Peter answered and said, 'You
are the Christ, the Son of the living God.'" -MATTHEW 16:15,16

Jesus did not teach Peter what to say, He merely revealed Himself
to Peter. He did not sit down with His disciples and say, "I am the
Christ, the Son of the Living God. Now repeat that after Me several
times, and I will test you on this in the morning." He did not
teach them a catechism or a rosary or a mantra or a confession, He
merely revealed Himself to them as He in fact is. They made the
confession in due course, having revelation.

The Testimony of Jesus always springs forth from the Revelation of
Christ. If we do not have the Revelation then we cannot have the
Testimony. That is to say, we cannot bear witness of what we have
seen and heard if we have not, in fact, seen or heard anything. We
try to get people to confess in order that they may ATTAIN to
something, but true confession comes forth naturally after they
have OBTAINED it.

"In Him we live and move and have our being." -ACTS 17:28

The Law of Life means that I do not try to be or do anything in my
own strength. Instead, the Life leads me, the Life instructs me,
and the Life gives me the words and the actions.

I am not a Christian because I believe in the Bible, follow the
teachings of Jesus, and live a good life. I am a Christian because
Christ is my Life. Since Christ is my Life, I no longer live, but
it is Christ Who lives in me. I do nothing to achieve this, it just
is. Because He lives, I live.

"To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life,
which is in the midst of the Paradise of God." -REVELATION 2:7

We should see that Christ does more than restore what Adam lost. He
goes beyond Adam, offering the Overcomers fruit from the Tree of
Life, fruit Adam knows nothing about. Obviously this is symbolic
language, but what does it mean? The Tree of Life represents the
Cross, for from that Tree the Lord yielded up His Life for us all.
Those who overcome have learned that fruitfulness and Life come
from death to Self, and that is what the Cross means. The Cross is
a Tree of Life to those who embrace it.

"We know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs
together until now." -ROMANS 8:22

Just as all things are working together towards God's purpose of
increasing Christ, so all things are working together towards
decreasing us. It does not matter if we understand it or comprehend
it. It does not matter if you believe in it or agree with it. You
are being decreased just the same, and Christ is being increased.
It MUST be so, therefore it IS so.

Scientists call this decreasing "entropy," and it means,
"inevitable and steady deterioration." We can observe this in
creation. The present things are groaning and laboring in pain,
deteriorating in order to make way for a new heaven and a new
earth. We begin to die as soon as we are born. We can look in our
own bodies for evidence of "inevitable and steady deterioration" as
we move towards a redeemed body. But more importantly, WE, the "I,"
the "Self," is being decreased that Christ may fill us.

"You meant evil against me; but God meant it for good." -GENESIS
50:20

The story of Joseph is not just the story of Joseph. It is the
story of how God works everything together for His Purpose. No
matter how far removed from that Purpose things seem to get,
eventually we see its fulfillment.

At some point in eternity we will all stand before God and will
finally see His Ultimate Purpose fulfilled. Then we will look back
on the sad history of the human race and we will see how God
brought something good out of every evil thing that ever rose up to
challenge His Purpose. For some people the existence of evil is a
stumbling block. If God is good, why does He allow evil? A better
question is: how can God allow evil and still manage to bring
something good out of it in the end? Evil is not a stumbling block
to an all-powerful, all-knowing Creator who specializes in bringing
good out of evil. What He did for Joseph He will do for all
Creation.

"All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth."
-MATTHEW 28:18

The only legitimate power in the universe belongs to the Lord Jesus
- all other power is either illegitimate or temporal. If THE power
belongs to Him, then it cannot belong to anyone else. Jesus says,
"All authority [power] has been given to Me in heaven and on
earth." That is a very broad statement, is it not? Absolute power
over all of creation!

In a world in which men (and devils) wrestle for dominion, joust
for position, seek the preeminence for themselves, strive to exert
their influence over others, and lust for more and more control
over one another, we as the Body of Christ may simply raise our
hands to heaven and lift up our eyes to our Head in Whom God has
vested all of His omnipotence and declare to the universe, "YOURS
IS THE POWER, and apart from You, we can do nothing."

"We do not yet see all things put under Him; but we see Jesus."
-HEBREWS 2:8,9

Today, Scripture acknowledges, we do not YET see all things
submitted to Him. I must say I find that word "YET" terribly
exciting! That word "YET" means that something is in store for
everything that remains unsubmitted to the Lord Jesus Christ. The
presence of the word "YET" means its manifestation is inevitable.

We are not pretending to see something that does not really exist -
yes, we agree that we do not YET see all things submitted to Him,
things are bad, and will probably get worse; BUT we do see JESUS,
and for the Christian who seeks first the Kingdom of God, that
revelation is sufficient. You may see every fact to the contrary
and argue against Him, but we see Who He is by revelation, and by
revelation we know that what we see happening in the unsubmitted
earth today will be set in order when Christ and His Kingdom are
manifest in all of creation.

INFINITE SUPPLY
Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Jesus lifted up His eyes, and seeing a great multitude coming
toward Him, He said to Philip, 'Where shall we buy bread, that
these may eat?' But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew
what He would do." -JOHN 6:5,6

When we see a need we grow frustrated. But when Jesus sees a need
He already knows what He wants to do. Not only will He meet the
need, but He will reveal Himself in the process. Sometimes He will
leave the need unmet, at least for a season, and just reveal
Himself to us as All that we need (2 Corinthians 12:8,9).

This explains why it sometimes appears that the Lord delays in
answering us. He already knows what He is going to do, but we do
not know. He waits for us to see if we will trust Him as Infinite
Supply. Is Jesus "Lord" only after He answers us? Or is Jesus
"Lord" whether He answers us or not? The Lord's "proving ground" is
just there, in between the Need and the Answer. And sometimes it
is, indeed, quite a stretching, and a thorough test.

INFINITE SUPPLY
Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"We also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ...He is
able even to subdue all things to Himself." -PHILIPPIANS 3:20,21

Everything is moving back TOWARDS a Christocentric universe, so
that as it was in the beginning, so it will be in the ending. Just
as all things have their source and beginning in Christ, so all
things will have their ending in Christ. He subdues all things, in
order to gather together and reconcile all things, that He may fill
all things.

What a task that is! How can that be? How can all things ever be
subdued, gathered together into one, reconciled, and filled by
Christ? We cannot say how, but we know that "He is able." Praise
God, how can we doubt Him? How can we question this Man? Do we not
yet know that He is the Preeminent One? Let us bow down and thank
and praise God that He is able!

INFINITE SUPPLY
Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life... He
who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death." -REVELATION
2:10,11

The Crown of Life comes to those who lose their life daily in order
to gain His Life daily. Overcomers cannot be hurt by death because
they have already died - not once, but thousands of times: taking
up the Cross daily, denying Self, and following the Lord. Thus, the
highest call is not to lay down our physical life as a martyr, but
to lay down our Self life as a disciple.

We can lay down our physical life in an instant, but to take up the
Cross daily is the truest test, and much more difficult. It
requires us to be "faithful unto death." This is the secret of the
Overcomers.

INFINITE SUPPLY
Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"In Him... being predestined according to the purpose of Him who
works all things according to the counsel of His will." -EPHESIANS
1:11

Here we have a three-fold witness to God's Ultimate Purpose and
Intention in Christ. First, God has a Will. Second, God's Will is
"all things in Christ." Third, God is working all things according
to this Purpose.

The fact that God has a Will, and works everything according to
this Will, is critical. There is a Purpose, a reason for being.
Nothing is created apart from this Purpose. You are not an
accident; you are not a mistake; you are not just a quirk of fate
or a victim of circumstance. There is no such thing as "luck."
There is an infinitely wise Creator Who stands behind His Creation,
and He has brought nothing into being without having first
completed it in His Own Mind first. He does not make things up as
He goes along, reacting to difficulties with a new contingency plan
when things do not go as expected. God has no "Plan B." He uses
everything - the good, the bad, and the ugly - to accomplish His
Purpose.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless
at Your word I will let down the net." -LUKE 5:5

When we cease trying to do what we cannot do then the Lord will
begin to do what only He can do anyway. "And when they had done
[what Jesus said to do] they caught a great number of fish, and
their net was breaking" (Luke 5:6). Peter, James, and John can try
as they might and do their best, but without the word of the Lord
it is in vain. They might have saved themselves a lot of effort had
they sought the word of the Lord to begin with.

Which would you rather have: a whole night of wasted effort on your
own, or five minutes of abundance with the Lord? Yes we should
work, but first we must wait. And if we will wait for the Lord then
we will have Infinite Supply for the work at hand.

"When they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that
they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they
realized that they had been with Jesus." -ACTS 4:13

When people are in your presence, what do they touch - a system of
beliefs, a code of conduct, an ethical standard, or a Person? We
may have an abundance of words and teachings, but all of them
together are nothing but letters if they are not constantly
pointing us to a Living Christ.

"Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring
forth the children of Israel out of Egypt? O my Lord, I am not
eloquent... but I am slow of speech, and slow of tongue." -EXODUS
3:11; 4:10

We know that in fact Moses was mighty in words and in deeds (Acts
7:22). But he no longer saw that as an asset anymore. That is
exactly the type of person that God is looking for. He is not
searching for those naturally gifted souls who think they can do it
and then set out in their own strength! It is those who embrace the
weakness of the Cross and allow God's strength to be perfected in
them that He is looking for.

"'You have put all things in subjection under His feet.' For in
that He put all in subjection under Him, He left nothing that is
not put under Him." -HEBREWS 2:8

This possession and subjection of all things to Christ is not a
passive, disinterested, distant, absentee ownership, like a clock
that was once wound and now ticks all by itself long after the
watchmaker has left it. Make no mistake: at the core of this
spiritual and physical universe is a living, powerful, proactive
Personality at work to bring fallen creation back to its original
state, back into line with God's Purpose, Heart, Mind, Desire, and
Plan, which is CHRIST FILLING ALL THINGS, CHRIST UPHOLDING ALL
THINGS, CHRIST AT THE CENTER OF ALL THINGS!

Come quickly Lord Jesus! May Your Kingdom be manifest!

"And [God] raised us up together, and made us sit together in the
heavenly places in Christ Jesus." -EPHESIANS 2:6

Do you see yourself seated with Christ in the heavenlies? Paul saw
it, and prayed the Ephesians would see it. When the Lord showed me
that I was raised together with Christ and was made to sit (past
tense) in the heavenly places with Christ, do you think it changed
the way I saw the world? Absolutely! No more was I looking at
things from "ground level," but from the heavenly realm.

Things look decidedly different when viewed from above.

"By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we
also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren." -1 JOHN 3:16

This increase of Christ and decrease of Self does not begin on a
universal level, but goes to work individually, quietly, in the
innermost being of every true disciple. This process of increasing
Christ and decreasing Self began long before you even gave your
heart to the Lord. It made the actual giving of your heart to Him
possible. But He must continue to increase, and so this process of
increase will continue beyond that initial coming to the Lord and
will be the means through which you are to grow spiritually.

In like manner, you must continue to decrease, and so that process
of decrease will continue beyond that initial coming to the Lord
and will also be the means through which you are to grow
spiritually. You need both the increase and the decrease. They both
work together, and one is not possible without the other.

"As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to
quarrel over opinions." -ROMANS 14:1 ESV

My children are immature, but I cannot expect them to be anything
other than immature so long as they are children. I am lovingly
committed to their long-term growth. In the same way, let us not
despise the spiritually immature or the weak in faith. Instead, the
Word tells us to receive them and watch over them. For those of you
who are further along, never forget how many years of God's
dealings it took to bring you to the level of experience you take
for granted today.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"In my prosperity I said, 'I shall never be moved.'" -PSALM 30:6

It should be obvious that God will not give us grace while we are
still proud. Why? Because He will allow no flesh to glory in His
presence. When we cease doing what we cannot do then He begins to
do what we cannot. The problem is that we still think we can do so
many things. We must learn sooner, rather than later, that "apart
from Me you can do nothing" (John 15:5). Nothing!

But it is human nature to try and do it ourselves. This human
nature is the flesh. It prevents us from entering into Grace. God
cannot save someone who is still trying to save themselves.
Similarly, God cannot do what we are still trying to do. He will
wait - weeks, months, or years - until we have exhausted our
strength. When our strength is completely gone and we finally go to
Him in weakness, He becomes our Strength and we find Grace is there
to do the impossible. Then we know it was not us, but the Lord. All
praise goes to Him, and we retain nothing for ourselves.

"She had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and
heard His word." -LUKE 10:39

There are two elements here: she sat at His feet, and she heard His
Word. You must sit at His feet and hear Him for yourself. Entering
into the Lord's thought, becoming acquainted with His Ways as well
as His Word, takes the sort of love-devotion Mary demonstrates.

The Greek here is continuous action: she "kept on listening."
Martha listened too, but when she arose to prepare dinner, Mary
remained. As we progress we will see that Mary has discovered
Spirit and Truth, and from henceforth she is always at the feet of
the Lord in one way or the other.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach
Christ crucified." -1 CORINTHIANS 1:22,23

Unfortunately, salvation as preached today results not in death,
but in "swooning." There is an ecstatic joy and the "near death
experience" of a token surrender, but it is not real death. The
convert merely changes his conduct, cries a few tears, yet he still
lives. The outward deportment may be different, but he has not
died. He commences to follow the Lord and fill his life with
spiritual activity, but his many failures and shortcomings prove
something is missing in his experience. What is it?

He knows the Cross only as something Jesus died on for him. The
Cross does not represent his own death, but his Lord's death. It is
seldom presented as anything other than the means of atonement and
forgiveness of sins. Few realize it is the means by which we enter,
as well as live, the Christian life.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"I am the Lord, I do not change." -MALACHI 3:6

God sees all things before they happen, therefore God is never
surprised or disappointed. Since He is never disappointed, He can
never be discouraged. Since He is never discouraged, we can be
confident that He will accomplish, perfect, and complete what He
sets out to do no matter how far off course or dark things seem to
get.

His Will and His Kingdom are not optional. His Will is not a mere
wish or a hope. His Word is a statement of purpose, a foregone
conclusion. Since God created time, He is above, beyond, and
outside of time; therefore, the passage of time does not diminish
His Will one iota. He is as zealous for the accomplishment and
fulfillment of His Will today as He was 2,000 years ago, and at
creation. He does not tire, He does not become stressed out, He
does not become unenthusiastic. We can always rely upon the
zealous, persistent Purpose of God.
