Yielding Always

“Whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.” 
LUKE 14:27

Embracing the Cross is not a once-and-for-all act, but a daily attitude of knowing our insufficiency in order to know the sufficiency of Christ. Jesus asks us to take up the Cross “daily” (Luke 9:23) and Paul said “I die daily” (1 Corinthians 15:31). Since we daily meet with temptations, tests and trials, so we must daily affirm and reaffirm who we are in Christ: the crucified, dead, buried, resurrected, ascended and seated Branches of the crucified, dead, buried, resurrected, ascended, and seated Vine.
As disciples we take up the Cross daily, which means we are always in a state of surrender and submission to the Lord Jesus, constantly forsaking our own way for His Way. This moment-by-moment yielding to Him is summed up in this saying: “Not I, but Christ” (Galatians 2:20).

My "family situation" has just escalated to a critical
junction. We would really appreciate your continued prayers and
intercessions for us.

Unfortunately I will be unable to teach tonight's webinar. We
will try again soon. I apologize for the cancellation.

Witnessing Wisdom

“Arise therefore, go down and go with them,
doubting nothing; for I have sent them.” 
ACTS 10:20

The success of the mission to Cornelius’ house had less to do with Peter’s ability to speak and more to do with the audience’s ability to hear. When we speak only to whom we are sent then we will see dramatic results.
Trying to speak to everyone in general and no one in particular is a colossal waste of time and demonstrates poor stewardship. We ought not to give ten coins to someone who can only handle five, and we ought not to give five coins to someone who cannot handle even one. It is clear that much time is wasted trying to convince, persuade, plead, argue, teach, and help people to whom God has not sent us. If we will wait for the Spirit of God we will save ourselves a lot of time, effort and energy. A worker who indiscriminately throws precious seed on rocky ground and gives pearls to pigs is not being a wise, faithful, and profitable servant.

Yes, tomorrow night's webinar is still on.

If you registered already, great!

If not, you can register here:
http://theschoolofchrist.org/webinar

Here is what we sent out last week concerning this:

--------
Paul compares our spiritual union with Christ to the union that
exists between a man and a woman when they are married:

"And the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is profound,
and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the Ekklesia"
(Eph.
5:31b,32).

Certainly this is a great mystery. How God is able to make us one
spirit with Jesus is beyond human knowledge.

But this we know: however it is accomplished, it has its beginning
in the Cross.

The Cross is the starting point of our union with Christ.

In the Cross, God sees us in the place of Christ and sees Christ in
the place of us.

That is to say, in the Cross, all our sinfulness is attributed to
Christ, and all His righteousness is attributed to us.

How wonderful for us - but how terrible for Him!

Join us this Thursday as we explore this in depth:

Fit to Follow

“Whoever desires to save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” 
MATTHEW 16:25

Some will say, “I am willing to die now that I have followed.” The person who knows the Cross says, “I am fit to follow now that I have died.”
Why is this important? Because Jesus knows that no human being is qualified to follow Him until they have first died. Jesus knows a man cannot live until he has died and been raised to life again. He therefore bids us to die right away, that He may raise us from the dead by His Indwelling Spirit and place us immediately upon the correct path.

What is Eternal Life?

“He who has the Son has life; he who 
does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 
1 JOHN 5:12

Would it shock you to learn that God has not given us a thing called eternal life? The Apostle John made this quite clear in his inspired writings, saying first of all, in the oft-quoted John 3:16, that the Son is that which was given, and eternal life is simply the reward for those who receive the Son.
It becomes even more apparent in 1 John 5:12. Yes we are given Eternal Life, true, but the Life is not floating out in space somewhere waiting to fall on those who ask. Eternal Life has nothing to do with everlasting existence. Eternal Life is a Person; the Life is the Son; hence, we need only ask if we have received Jesus and we shall know whether we have Eternal Life. The Life is bound up in the Son, as is every one of God’s precious gifts. Having the Son, we therefore have all the Son has. Eternal Life is simply an alias for Christ.

Stubborn Sheep

“All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one, to his own way.” 
ISAIAH 53:6

Sheep are notorious for going their own independent way and ignoring the Shepherd. The Shepherd is well able to protect His Sheep; the Shepherd’s challenge is to get the Sheep to stay close to Him at all times. To accomplish this He has to discipline us severely and teach us not to wander off. This is where the work of the Cross comes in.
But what a great day for both the Shepherd and the stubborn little sheep when it no longer goes its own way, but follows the Shepherd and obeys His voice! Were it not for Him the lambs would be destroyed in a moment.

The Most Basic Lesson

“I know that in me (that is,
in my flesh) nothing good dwells.” 
ROMANS 7:18

It is a great day for the Lord when a disciple of Jesus learns this most basic lesson: that in “me,” in myself, in my flesh, dwells no good thing.
This is a very difficult thing for people to learn. Jesus says that without Him we can do nothing (John 15:5). This verse is very well-known. Even so, Christians still attempt to do many things apart from the Lord. We feel like we simply must do something, anything. And even though the Bible says there is nothing good in our flesh, and the flesh profits nothing, we spend a lot of time doing fleshly things apart from the Spirit of Jesus, thinking they are good and profitable.
It is impossible to say for sure just how many of the things we “feel led” to do and say are actually just things we feel like doing and saying. A lot of the time the Lord has very little to do with it.

Satisfied in Christ

“I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me
shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me
shall never thirst.” 
JOHN 6:35

The Law of Life says that the presence of Christ within the believer results in spiritual satisfaction. If we have Him then we will never hunger or thirst again, because He is Infinite Supply.
Anything less than spiritual satisfaction indicates that there is a problem. I am not saying that one should be content with their progress and present knowledge of Christ so that they stop growing; but I am saying that no matter what stage of progress you may be at presently, Christ should be your satisfaction.

Seeing Victory

“Elisha prayed, and said, ‘Lord, I pray,
open his eyes that he may see.’ Then the LORD opened
the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold,
the mountain was full of horses and chariots of
fire all around Elisha.” 
2 KINGS 6:17

Denying the existence of the adversary will not make him disappear. We acknowledge and admit that there is a real enemy, a real spirit of Antichrist, that is out to destroy the Remnant and hinder the Testimony of Jesus. We also acknowledge and admit that more often than not, this spirit of Antichrist seems to get the advantage over us.
Even so, the issue is not the enemy. We may look at the enemy, study him, and build an entire movement around different ways to fight him. We can write books and hold seminars on “spiritual warfare.” But when we look out from the mountain, what do we really see? Here is the difference between those who overcome and those who are defeated: it is not in their ability to fight, but in their ability to SEE, and this seeing is not of themselves, but is of God.

Kingdom Living

“Seek the kingdom of God, and
all these things shall be added to you.” 
LUKE 12:31

Let us seek first the Kingdom of God – not as an idea, or a doctrine, or a theological position, but as a way of living! At least Paul could say, “my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power” (1 Corinthians 2:4). Is anyone frustrated by the fact that all too often the only thing we have to offer people in the name of Jesus are pretty words?
At some point sermons and songs fail and something of the very Life and power and glory and majesty of God must come forth to meet real, practical needs. Healing the sick and casting out devils was (and is) as much a part of the Kingdom of God as preaching and teaching. Everyone we pray for is not instantly healed and delivered, but let us pray for them anyway. We may not yet see all things submitted to Him, but can we not at least expect to see some things submitted to Him?

Our family is going through a very difficult situation right now.

Please pray for us as the Lord leads you, that "no weapon formed
against us shall prosper."

I have re-scheduled tonight's webinar for next week.

Abundant Life

“I have come that they may have life,
and that they may have it more abundantly.” 
JOHN 10:10

Ask the Lord to open your eyes and show you the Life which is yours. Go to Him and say, “I have heard about this Life, but I don’t know how it works or what to do with it. Please show me, please teach me, please reveal this Life to me.” And He will do it.
If ever you see this, just once, you will discover the secret to the Christian life. You will shake your head and say, “All these years I thought I was really living the Christian life, and all I have been doing is playing tiddlywinks. This Life I have been given is greater, bigger, and more wonderful than I ever dreamed!”

Ever Present Victory
“Thanks be to God, who gives us
the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 
1 CORINTHIANS 15:57

When God is pleased to reveal His Son to us, we will learn that Victory is not a thing, but a Person; that Victory is not an experience, but a Man; that God does not give me a thing called victory, but has given me His Son in the place of victory in order to be my Victory. Then Victory will never be future-tense and far-away, but Ever Present and Now. For Victory is Christ. And Victory lives within you.
Thus, Victory has nothing to do with the devil, and everything to do with Christ. Since most Christians have more faith, assurance and reverence for the devil than they do for the Lord Jesus, it is easy to see why so many are defeated.

"Not I, But Christ"

“I have been crucified with Christ; it is
no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.” 
GALATIANS 2:20

Just as salvation is ours through faith by grace, and not of ourselves, so it is with living the Christian life. The difference between a defeated Christian and a victorious Christian is simply this: the former lives by his own power and asks for God’s help and will almost as an afterthought, while the latter despairs of himself, lays down his life, and trusts Christ to live in his place, at all times.
The Cross is how God accomplishes this task of bringing us to the end of ourselves. Then we can say, “Not I, but Christ.”

Christ Spontaneously Revealed

“May [God] give to you the spirit of wisdom
and revelation in the knowledge of Him.” 
EPHESIANS 1:17

The Lord reveals Himself to us in a variety of ways, and every testimony is different. Peter received the revelation of Christ while fishing. But Thomas received the revelation of Christ only after the Lord appeared to Him and showed him His wounds. Paul received the revelation of Christ on the road to Damascus, as he was on his way to kill Christians. One man says Christ was revealed to him as he stood watching a tree in the dead of winter. Christ was revealed to me as I sat in my backyard, arguing with the Lord over the Bible.
What do these experiences have in common? They are spontaneous unveilings of Jesus Christ. Without warning the Lord simply reveals Himself, and whereas we were blind before, today we see. It is like walking out of one room and into another room, closing the door behind us.

Dying Daily

“If anyone desires to come after Me, let him
deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” 
LUKE 9:23

Do we need the power of God today? Do we seek the Life of the Lord today? Do we desire Him to have the preeminence in our lives today? Do we long for Him today? Then now is the time for us to be unconditionally and wholeheartedly surrendered to Him. We need not drag the process out for several days and weeks, months and years. Do it today, do it now.
If we must daily take up the Cross anyway, let us bow our head and give up the ghost instead of struggling to stay alive, which only prolongs our agony. The secret to overcoming is dying daily.

Finding Grace

“Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” 
GENESIS 6:8

It took five hundred years of walking with God, but Noah found grace, and that made it all worthwhile. Let us learn to do nothing apart from this amazing grace. It is better to wait five hundred years for grace than to work for five minutes without it.
What is grace? I teach people that Grace is a Man. Amazing Grace is simply Jesus living in me, doing what I cannot do. It does not matter if “what I cannot do” is save myself, overcome sin, love my neighbor, or build an ark. “For by Grace (Jesus) you have been saved through faith (trusting Jesus to do what you cannot do); and that not of yourselves; it (He) is the Gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8). I am insufficient; but His Grace (Jesus) is sufficient. His Grace (Jesus) is more than enough. His Grace (Jesus) is Infinite Supply! But “without Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).

Through the Fire

“I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches,
in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for 
Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 
2 CORINTHIANS 12:10

Now it does not say that Paul made himself weak on purpose. We do not have to seek weaknesses, infirmities, tribulations, temptations, or trials. We already have them. The key is how do we respond to them? We can fight them, or we can embrace them. Paul clearly shows us that it is not always God’s will for us to be saved FROM the fire. Often we are called to walk THROUGH the fire, with no assurance except that His Grace is sufficient. In the fire we learn that “Grace” is a Man, just like Victory is a Man.
To be delivered from weakness is one thing, but to meet Grace in my weakness is something else entirely.

God's Progressive Recovery

“Rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.” 
PHILIPPIANS 3:3

Self – meaning the innate tendency in man to put himself and his desires above God and others – is the real source of all wickedness. That explains why merely dealing with the devil is not enough to rid the world of evil. If the devil were to disappear tomorrow the problem of Self would remain. It is a condition that exists deep within every man, woman, boy, and girl. Although the Self-life is a formidable obstacle to the Christ-life, it is by no means too difficult for God to overcome.
Christ must increase, and Self must decrease. God is working to reestablish and recover that Heavenly Order in all things, beginning with individuals, then with a company of men and women, and ultimately extending to the entire creation, so that “God may be all in all” (1 Corinthians 15:28). The Bible is the story of the progressive recovery and increase of Christ in the midst of a world gone astray.

Jesus told Pilate: "Everyone that is of the truth hears My
Voice."

Pilate answered, "What is truth?"

To Jesus, "the truth" is something essential to knowing
Him.

Jesus is so intrinsically "True" that He is called
"Faithful and True" and refers to Himself as "The
Truth."

Amazing, isn't it?

If you love the truth, you'll hear His Voice.

If you know the truth, the truth will make you free.

But for most of the world "truth" is a relative term.

For them, "truth" is whatever you want to believe,
whatever you need to believe.

It's all situational; there is no objective standard, no
principle, no foundation, other than each one doing what seems
right in his own eyes - whatever benefits Me, Myself, and I.

But really...

A lot of Christian don't do much better than the world when it
comes to "truth."

"Truth" to them is not what really is, but what they want
to believe.

They want to believe that God always wishes to make them healthy,
wealthy and successful, and so that becomes their "truth."

Their whole Christian experience is a house of cards that threatens
to fall down the moment a little gust of truth blows upon it.

The biggest symptom is: they aren't willing to follow the Truth
wherever the Truth may lead.

The Truth may lead you to contradict what the church teaches.

The Truth may lead you to say and do things that get you accused of
being "unloving" or "judgmental" or
"rebellious."

The Truth will make you free - but first, it may make you mad.

And for that reason, many believers, if they don't fall away
from the Truth completely, they simply shy away from the Truth, the
Whole Truth, and Nothing But The Truth.

Enough already.

Here's my question for you:

Can you make the radical adjustments necessary to be able to
receive more Truth, and to walk in the Truth of what you already
know?

Answer: yes, you can.

What Would Jesus Do?

“We know that when He is revealed, we shall
be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.” 
1 JOHN 3:2

If we are abiding in Him then we will be as He is. If we have put on the Lord Jesus then we are being changed into His likeness, we are being made into His image, and we are in the process of being transfigured.
After some time following the Lord we should not have to stop and ask ourselves, “What would Jesus do?” If we are being transfigured then that Light and that Life will respond spontaneously and effortlessly to any demand placed upon it.

Elaine

Of course you know what Light is.

And you know what Life is.

And you know what Love is.

But in my experience, most people don't know how God designed
Light, Life, and Love to work TOGETHER.

This is the principle of the "Threefold Cord" revealed in
this two hour audio teaching:

http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=MayDZ&m=3d1gJ4HnY2pjxNq&b=7Zi_uK0tx1ZxADbXQ6mThA

Go grab this teaching now, because we're only going to make it
available for a few days.

After that, it will be included as a free gift for those who
purchase my new book, "Heart of Fire."

For now, it's a free gift to everyone on my list, just to say
thanks for subscribing.

Here's the replay link again:
http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=MayDZ&m=3d1gJ4HnY2pjxNq&b=7Zi_uK0tx1ZxADbXQ6mThA

And if you haven't pre-ordered the book yet, you can still do
so at a discounted rate for a limited time.

Enjoy!
In Him,
Chip Brogden

Victorously Positioned

“He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power.” 
EPHESIANS 1:20,21

You will find that the whole strategy of the adversary is to bring you down from your heavenly position in Christ and engage you on a fleshly, carnal, earthly level. To overcome, you need only maintain the ascended position with Christ. We are not trying to get the victory. Instead, we have been made one with Victory. If I enter into a room and sit down in a chair I do not have to wonder how I will enter the room. God has already seated us together with Christ; therefore, we do not have to try to enter in, rise up, or “get” the victory. Having already obtained this triumph through the Cross, we no longer have to attain it in our own strength. The Cross of Christ! What a marvelous provision it is!

Knowing Yourself

“I know that in me (that is,
in my flesh) nothing good dwells.” 
ROMANS 7:18

Paul knew this because he knew the Cross. Do we know it? Those who embrace the Cross have acknowledged this in themselves and have surrendered their way over to His Way.
In what areas must we acknowledge this inability to do anything apart from Christ? It must not only be acknowledged: it must be truly seen, deeply felt, and painfully experienced in every area of our life, one step at a time. This is the work of the Cross. In our daily life we come up against situations that we cannot overcome in our own strength, or with our own wisdom. We need a strength and a wisdom that comes from Above, that comes from Beyond, that comes from Another outside of us and yet rises up from within us.

Getting Direction

“They were forbidden by the Holy Spirit
to preach the word in Asia. After they had
come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia,
but the Spirit did not permit them.” 
ACTS 16:6,7

Our destination, as well as our departure, must be governed by the Spirit. How intriguing that the Spirit actually forbade them to preach the word in Asia and Bithynia! This ought to be proof enough that “need,” in and of itself, is insufficient guidance. The only thing that matters is being sent, and it is critical that we go only where the Spirit sends us.
The apostles were indeed sent forth by the Spirit, yet that same Spirit did not permit them to just go wherever they pleased. Later we see that Paul indeed went to Asia and a tremendous work was founded. This tells us that a “no” today does not mean a “no” is forever; nevertheless, when the Spirit forbids us, we dare not take matters into our own hands and go where we have not been sent.

The Gate and the Way

“Narrow is the gate and difficult is the way
which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” 
MATTHEW 7:14

We cannot walk the narrow path until we have entered the narrow gate. But we cannot assume that because we have entered the narrow gate we are now finished. Most people lay stress on the gate, and their goal is to get people just far enough through the gate that they can claim salvation. But the narrow gate is only the beginning.
The narrow gate only opens the door to the narrow way. It is the narrow way which leads to Life, and few find it. Fewer still walk to the end of it.

Healing the Spiritually Blind

“One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see.” 
JOHN 9:25

We are the man born blind in John 9. It is not that he can improve himself, or gradually come to the place where he can see something. He is BORN blind, and he can see nothing but darkness until the Lord, the Light of the world, makes him see.
So many blind people hope to improve their seeing through sermons, meetings, and more teachings. But one moment of seeing is worth ten thousand years of learning. It is better to sit at the feet of an ignorant man who has seen the Lord than it is to be instructed by the most educated Bible teacher who is blind to the things of God.

Hey Elaine!

You know I've been teaching about LIGHT, LIFE and LOVE now for several weeks.
But these revelations have been rumbling around inside of me for over a year now.
Last spring the Lord started dealing with me on this subject and showing me some new things.
So I did what I usually do: I wrote a book.
But this book is different from any other book I've ever written.
Here's why:
It's not the usual teaching book you've come to expect from me.
It's a novel.
I like to think of it as a "parabolic novel." Meaning, it tells a story while it is teaching spiritual truth.
Not a bad way to learn.
It's called "Heart of Fire: A Story of Light, Life, and Love."
This book is a Biblically and historically accurate account of life as a Christian in the first and second century, based on real people, actual events, and timeless truths that are as applicable today as they were then.
This book won't ship until next month - but it's available at a special rate if you pre-order now.
Click here to learn more about it:

I am your brother,
Chip Brogden
TheSchoolOfChrist.Org
P.S. Quantities are limited and the special rate is only good during the pre-ordering phase. Thank you for supporting Christ-centered teaching!

Created for Him

“All things were created through Him and for Him.” 
COLOSSIANS 1:16

In the beginning, when man walked with God, there was an obvious Heavenly Order in the earth. This simply meant that Christ was in His rightful place. When Christ has the preeminence, when He has the centrality and the supremacy, then all is well.
God created all things “by Him and for Him” and installed Him as Lord of All. With Christ in His rightful place the rest of creation could proceed. Six times in the Book of Genesis God declared that what He had just made was “good.” When the work was finally completed, God judged the final state of things to be “very good” (Genesis 1:31) and by far the greatest benefit of living under this Heavenly Order was the spiritual condition of man before the fall. Spiritually he was at peace with himself and at peace with his God. In a word, the state of things as they existed in the Heavenly Order was perfect. It was, quite literally, heaven on earth.

God's Primary Purpose

“In Him dwells all the fullness
of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him,
who is the head of all principality and power.” 
COLOSSIANS 2:9,10

Everything God has done, is doing, and will do is aimed at bringing us deeper into Christ, to finish what was begun in us when we first received Him. God is the One Who brings us through the Gate, and God is the One Who leads us along the Path.
Everything God has done, is doing, and will do has the same purpose, and that purpose explains everything you have been through, everything you are going through, and everything you will go through.

Elaine

You can learn a lot about someone just my listening to how they
talk to God.

John 17 lets us do just that - we get to hear Jesus praying
the night He was betrayed.

John is the only one who records His prayer, word for word.

Yes, it's THAT important.

What does it mean to you and me?
