Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who
became for us wisdom from God-- and righteousness
and sanctification and redemption-- that, as it is
written, 'He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.'"
1 CORINTHIANS 1:30,31

We must be clear: these things are not the "reward" for years of
faithful service, or the fruit of walking with Jesus after a long
period of time. If I have Him now, then I have all that pertains to
Him now. My Wisdom, my Righteousness, my Sanctification, and my
Redemption has a personality, for He is all those things in me.

It is not a question of my behavior, or my conduct, or my feelings
one way or the other - those things will come into line soon enough
- but it is all based upon this accomplished fact. Christ is God's
Gift. I repeat, we have much to praise God about!

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love
their lives to the death."
REVELATION 12:11

It is helpful to identify the three enemies that present themselves
to us, and then the above verse will make even more sense. The
overcomer must learn how to defeat each one. So what are they?

First, there is the enemy of Sin. Second, the enemy of Self. Third,
the enemy of Satan. All contrary things, whether they be of
spiritual, natural, or human origin, find their root in one of
these three sources.

The glorious thing, of course, is that God's provision meets all
three enemies and defeats them in order to demonstrate the
preeminence of Christ. This, in essence, is what it means to
overcome. It is to demonstrate the pre-eminence of Christ over all
things.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Paul dwelt two whole years in his own rented house,
and received all who came to him, preaching the kingdom of God
and teaching the things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ
with all confidence, no one forbidding him."
ACTS 28:30,31

Apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers must point
people to Christ. Otherwise they are not fulfilling the purpose for
which God placed them in the Body to begin with. Apostolic ministry
is not an end unto itself, but is a means to an end. Prophetic
ministry is not an end unto itself, but is a means to an end.
Evangelistic ministry is not an end unto itself, but is a means to
an end. Pastoral and teaching ministries are not ends unto
themselves, but are a means to an end.

What is the end? What is the purpose? What does it all lead to? It
leads to "the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ"
(Ephesians 4:13). The fullness of Christ, the full-knowledge of Him
- this is God's Goal and His Ultimate Intention.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
old things have passed away; behold, all things
have become new."
2 CORINTHIANS 5:17

When God placed us in Christ, He forever linked us to Christ's
death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and being seated in the
heavenlies. So God considers us to have been crucified, dead,
buried, resurrected, ascended, and seated as well. It cannot be
otherwise. So long as we remain in Him (John 15:5) our destinies
are linked.

I once placed a $20 bill inside of a book. I then misplaced the
book. What happened to the $20 bill? The bill was lost when the
book was lost. The bill and the book were linked together because I
placed one inside the other. In order to find the bill I had to
find the book. Once I found the book, I also found the bill. In
like manner, God has placed us in Christ. When Christ was
crucified, we were also crucified. When Christ was raised, we were
also raised. The two have become one, and what is true of Him is
true of all those who are one with Him.

"These who have turned the world upside down have come here too."
ACTS 17:6

If God can find a man or a woman who will give Him the preeminence
and will give Him the freedom to increase, then there is no limit
to what God can do through that yielded vessel. And if He can find
a handful of people like that then He will use them to turn the
world upside down. It has happened once before and I am positive
that it can happen again.

The Father is seeking those who will worship Him in Spirit and in
TRUTH. Has He found what He is looking for in you? Will you be the
one? Will you be the chosen?

"Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit."
LUKE 23:46

Death by crucifixion cannot be accomplished by suicide. We cannot
crucify ourselves.

The instrument of our death is chosen for us, as well as the manner
in which it is carried out, the timing, and the duration of the
execution - all is controlled by Another. There is nothing to be
done, for we must submit to the Unseen Hand and cast ourselves
completely upon Him.

"Let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning.
If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also
will abide in the Son and in the Father."
1 JOHN 2:24

There is still much of Him to learn and to experience. There is
much growing which must take place. The Path is a process. We are
hardly ever as far along as we imagine ourselves to be. But we have
not been talking about spiritual maturity, but spiritual
satisfaction. If, in abiding continually in the Lord, He becomes
our food and our drink, then we will grow.

Growth is not the result of time, it is the natural result of
Christ increasing and us decreasing. The Law of Life says that
Christ must increase. Now we can do nothing to speed up this
process, but we can certainly hinder or quench it.

"As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the Word, that you may
grow thereby." 1 PETER 2:2

When we realize we don't know, then Christ becomes our Wisdom so we
CAN know.

When we are children we are apt to say, I know WHAT I believe. As
we grow out of infancy and begin to wrestle with the deeper
questions and issues of the Christian faith we will learn to say, I
know WHY I believe. The ultimate experience, however, is to be
brought to a place where we can say with confidence, I know WHOM I
believe.

Knowing WHAT is a beginning.

Knowing WHY is progress.

Knowing WHO is maturity.

"Then these men assembled, and found Daniel
praying and making supplication before his God."
DANIEL 6:11

Something should be driving us to pray. There should be some
unction, some inner compulsion, to seek God, to seek Him early, and
to seek Him often. If that is not our daily experience then
something is wrong.

Perhaps we have grown complacent, or comfortable, or cold. Whatever
the reason, vision is the cure. If we have truly seen God's Purpose
we cannot just go along as before. It will consume us. A person
with a small vision will pray small prayers. Daniel was a man of
huge vision, and so he prayed large prayers.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God. He was in the beginning with God."
JOHN 1:1,2

When you read the first chapter of John's gospel you discover the
presence of Someone Who "in the beginning" was with God and was God
at the same time. We will not attempt to explain the unexplainable;
suffice it to say, the Word that was with God, and was God, and
eventually "became flesh and dwelt among us" (John 1:14) is the
Lord Jesus Christ.

When God created man, it says He breathed the breath of life into
him (Genesis 2:7). Here, John states that the Light (Jesus Christ)
is the Life of men. What is the point? That before anything was
created, God determined in advance that the universe, and
everything in it, would be established, presided over, and governed
by, through, and for Jesus Christ - and God has never altered from
that original intention and purpose. This forms the basic principle
of the Heavenly Order, which in turn governs the Irresistible
Kingdom.

"God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He
pleased." 1 CORINTHIANS 12:18

A Christian should realize that he or she is a unique member of the
Body of Christ and not the entire Body all at once. We are many
parts that together make up the whole. Each individual member has
its own unique purpose, function, and role. The responsibility for
God's work is divided among many members.

We are not called to be all things to all people. We are not called
to meet every need. God sets each person in the Body of Christ as
it pleases Him, and He is the One Who sends us. We do not send
ourselves. We do not determine what we would like to do. We do not
analyze the situation with our limited understanding and come up
with a solution. The Head determines what needs to be done, and the
members simply perform it.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Where is your faith?"
LUKE 8:25

What is faith? Is it a spiritual force? Is it a creative power? Is
it a special gift from God, or something we have to develop on our
own? According to the Bible, faith is simply believing that God is
Who He says He is, and trusting that He will do what He says He
will do. When Jesus says, "Where is your faith?" He's saying,
"Don't you trust Me?"

I'm convinced that we have plenty of faith. The problem is we have
faith in all the wrong things. Where is your faith? In yourself? In
other people? Can you only trust what you see, hear, and
experience, or will you dare to trust Someone you can't see?
Believing the impossible makes the impossible possible.

"You also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ,
that you may be married to another -- to Him who was raised from the
dead, that we should bear fruit to God."
ROMANS 7:4

You may wonder how this union with Jesus was accomplished. I do not
have the answer to that, but I consider it to be so because God
says it is so. God placed us in Christ. I do not fully understand
how He did this, but I know that He did it, and I thank God for it.
The Bible says that "because of [God] you are in Christ Jesus" (1
Corinthians 1:30).

Disciples of Jesus are one with Christ because God has placed us
there. We are in Christ, and Christ is in us. We may not understand
how this can be so, but it is so. We are spiritually one with
Christ. This oneness, this union, this partnership and fellowship
with Him is the basis of our spiritual life and our walk with God.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
PHILIPPIANS 4:13

We don't have to imitate His Life, we only have to trust His Life!
Trust in His Life to do it in, through, and on behalf of us who
cannot do it! If you have ever once trusted in His Life to keep you
from losing your temper, you can trust in His Life every single
time you are confronted with it, and He will bring you through.
Without exception. Along those lines, I can say with all
confidence, that if you can trust His Life to overwhelm your
temper, you can trust His Life for everything else. What do you
need? Do you worry too much? Are you fearful? Are you bitter?

His Life indwells you right now, and longs to make you into
something totally new, to transfigure you into something entirely
different than what you are now. Thank the Lord that I don't have
to be the way I am, but there is hope for me, and there is hope for
you, and there is hope for the worst sinner on the face of the
earth, because it is not a question of my effort, but of His
sufficiency!

"Rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this
purpose..." ACTS 26:16


The Lord has a purpose for you, and a destiny for you to fulfill.
But things will not always go the way you think they should. That
is because the Lord calls you to something bigger than yourself,
something beyond your ability, something you cannot originate or
perpetuate without Him. It takes time. Noah walked with God for
five hundred years and spent one hundred years building the ark.
Abraham was one hundred years old before he finally saw God's
promise come true. Moses spent forty years in Egypt, then forty
years in the desert, before God sent him to Pharaoh. Jesus prepared
thirty years for an earthly ministry of three and a half years.

Dear brother, dear sister: walk with God. Find Grace. Discover the
One Thing. Focus on being, not doing. And when it IS time for you
to do something you can be confident that your labor of love will
be the work that God blesses.

not respond in kind. If they attack you without cause, let them
attack, because the fleshly, the carnal, the natural cannot defeat
the spiritual.

The one who is submitted to the Lord has authority over those who
remain unsubmitted to Him. Flesh is overruled by Spirit. Hate is
overruled by Love. Darkness is overruled by Light. Death is
overruled by Life. Earth is overruled by Heaven.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven."
MATTHEW 5:3


This spiritual poverty is the result of recognizing that apart from
Him we can do nothing. It is a willingness to be broken and reduced
to spiritual bankruptcy, which implies not only losing everything
we once enjoyed, but also making a fresh start with a clean slate
and all our debts erased. It is the Second Universal Spiritual
Principle, which states: "I must decrease" (John 3:30). This
decreasing, or as I like to say, this reducing to Christ, is the
first requirement.

If we are unwilling to be emptied then we cannot have the riches of
the Kingdom of Heaven. We will be like the Laodicean church, who
said they were "rich and increased with goods and have need of
nothing" yet in God's sight they were poor, blind, naked, and
miserable (Revelation 3:17). So the Kingdom belongs to those who
readily admit right from the beginning that "a man can receive
nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven " (John
3:27).

"Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring
it to pass." PSALM 37:5

We want the Lord's Life, but we also want to retain a little
something of our life. That will never work. This is why you have
such ups and downs, simply because you still love your life, and
only trust in His Life for the really difficult moments. In a bad
situation you will throw yourself upon His Life and it will carry
you on through, but in the normal everyday situations you live
according to your own life.

Instead, let us learn to trust in His Life for every moment of
every day. If we will surrender everything His Life will reproduce
in us more effectively, gradually transforming, renewing,
invigorating, and sustaining us from the inside out.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Whom are you seeking?"
JOHN 18:4

In other words, who are you looking for? This particular crowd was
pressing in to have Jesus arrested and put to death. The day before
the crowds were pressing in to proclaim "Hosanna!", and before that
they were pressing in to make Him their king by force (John 6:15).
At other times the people pressed Him to hear the Word of God.
Still other times the people pressed Him to be healed of their
diseases.

Pressing Him, pushing Him, forever wanting more and never
satisfied. Very few know how to sit at His feet just to hear His
Word. Very few are willing to pour out the best ointment on Him,
and when they do, they are severely criticized for such a "waste."

Does anyone seek Him for His sake? Does anyone press upon Him, not
for what He can give, but for Who He is? Does anyone seek Him out,
not to get some need met, but so they "may know Him" (Philippians
3:10)?

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Do you also want to go away?"
JOHN 6:67

Jesus sought to thin out the crowds with a difficult word, saying,
"You must eat My flesh and drink My blood if you wish to be My
disciples." At this saying, the multitude and many of His disciples
turned aside and no longer followed Him. Instead of running after
them in an effort to make Himself understood and accepted, He
watched them go. Then, turning to the Twelve, He said, "Do you also
want to go away?" Here is a Man who is not afraid to be
misunderstood because He is not afraid of people, what they will
think, or what they will say about Him unjustly.

To overcome the fear of man, we must not only be willing to be
misunderstood and unappreciated, we should expect it. Then we will
be free to speak what God has given us and will not be troubled
should others fail to grasp the significance of it.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"[Abraham] was looking forward to the city
that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God."
HEBREWS 11:10 ESV

An artist sees a new painting before he picks up the brush to
create it. A musician hears a new song in her head before she picks
up her instrument to compose it. A writer conceives ideas,
concepts, and things to be conveyed to others in his heart long
before he sets words to paper. An architect designs the building
before construction begins.

The creative process is the progressive, orderly arrangement of
things until what is seen outwardly lines up with what has already
been seen inwardly. God is the Ultimate Creator. We find that He
established an order of things before He ever brought them into
being - an eternal purpose that He purposed in Christ. The
crucifixion of Christ was not God's startled reaction to the
unforeseen and unimaginable fall of Adam. God envisioned things
straight through to the end before He set them in motion.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"He made Him who knew no sin
to be sin for us, that we might become the
righteousness of God in Him."
2 CORINTHIANS 5:21

When we submit to the Cross, God identifies us with Christ just the
same as if we were sinless. Jesus becomes our wisdom,
righteousness, sanctification, and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30).
It does not say that He gives these things to us, it says He is
these things to us.

Was Jesus crucified for His sins? No, He was crucified for our
sins. Are we now wise, righteous, sanctified, and redeemed because
of anything we have done? No, God simply identifies us together
with Christ, as if we were crucified together with Him. He loses
everything and we gain everything. This is why salvation begins
with repentance, surrender, and faith in Christ and His finished
work on the Cross. It cannot be accomplished otherwise. What a
glorious Lord we have!

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"There was an army, surrounding the city
with horses and chariots. And his servant said to him, 'Alas, my
master! What shall we do?' So he answered, 'Do not fear, for those
who are with us are more than those who are with them.' And 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."
2 KINGS 6:15-17

When the servant's eyes were opened, he saw what Elisha saw. When
Elisha said, "Those who are with us are more than those who are
with them" it must have sounded like lunacy. It cannot be
understood with words alone: the eyes must be opened. If words were
enough then Elisha would not have prayed for the eyes to be opened.

We should spend less time trying to understand "words" and more
time praying for God to open our eyes. When our eyes are opened,
then the words will make sense. Until then, words are like
hieroglyphics - we know there is something significant there, but
we cannot understand what it means.

"Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!"
MATTHEW 16:22

See how many times the disciples tried to correct the Lord. See how
many times they argued with the Lord. See how many times their
thoughts contradicted the Master. See how many times they urged Him
to take action. And the Lord, ever patient, would correct them.

In every case we see that He is the Lord, and they are the
disciples. The roles must never be confused. He is the Master, and
we are His servants. We do not command Him, but He commands us. We
do not lead Him, but He leads us. He was not created for us, but we
were created for Him. He does not serve us according to our
pleasure, but we serve Him according to His pleasure. So we must be
adjusted to Him, and not the other way around. The Lord will never
apologize to us and say, "I'm sorry, I was wrong. We'll do it your
way." How laughable! How absurd! But we often live as if we expect
Him to do that very thing. We have not humbled ourselves.

"Put on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts."
ROMANS 13:14

God's Solution to the problem of sin, self, and satan is to have us
put on the Lord Jesus. Only through Him can we "make no provision
for the flesh," and only through Him can we "stand against the
wiles of the devil." We dare not make it more complicated when the
Lord has made it simple.

To focus on our flesh and on our enemy is a huge waste of time.
Instead, we must perceive just how glorious the Son of God is, and
press deeply into Him. Do you have a method, or a Man? It is not
about me, my flesh, or the devil - it is all about Christ, and as
He is increased, none of these other things can do anything but be
decreased.

"I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent
deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be
corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ."
2 CORINTHIANS 11:3

I have said many times that we do not need more of the Lord, since
we are already complete in Christ - we just need less of everything
else. There are many things that spoil, hinder, distract, and lead
us away from the simplicity of an abiding relationship with Jesus.
Many of them are spiritual and religious. The spirit of Antichrist
is not necessarily seen in something that is obviously satanic or
demonic. Instead, the spirit of Antichrist is revealed in anything
that seeks to spoil us by taking our eyes off of Christ - it is
anti-Christ, against Christ, antithetical to the great Purpose of
God.

How easy it is for us to become distracted into something less than
Christ! Are you centered on Christ? Is Jesus your obsession? Is He
your focus? Or have you set your sights on something beneath Him?

"A woman came to Him having an alabaster
flask of very costly fragrant oil, and she poured it on His head
as He sat at the table. But when His disciples saw it, they were
indignant, saying, 'Why this waste? For this fragrant oil might
have been sold for much and given to the poor.'"
MATTHEW 26:7-9

We want to appear to be busy doing for God, busy at our "ministry."
But there is a place where we simply "waste" ourselves on Him, and
outwardly we appear to be doing nothing.

Would that more believers would "waste" themselves more often,
ministering to the Lord, sitting at His feet, hearing His word,
ministering to Him in secret prayer and fasting! Then when they do
rise up to work, how much more fruitful they will be!

"Because of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became
to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and
redemption." 1 CORINTHIANS 1:30 ESV

Have you ever seen a brother or a sister try to act sanctified?
They wear themselves and everyone else out. It is a burden to be
around such a person. That is not Christianity.

Christianity is this: not that I am trying to be wise, but that I
receive the Lord Jesus as my Wisdom; not that I am trying to be
righteous, but that I receive the Lord Jesus as my Righteousness;
not that I am trying to be sanctified, but that I receive the Lord
Jesus as my Sanctification; not that I am trying to be redeemed,
but that I accept the Lord Jesus as my Redemption. Henceforth I
cease trying to be anything, and I allow Him to be Who He is
through me.

"What things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.
Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the
knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the
loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain
Christ." PHILIPPIANS 3:7,8

The ones who have been sufficiently broken eventually manifest very
little of their self, and very much of Christ. God must work long
and hard with us to bring us to this place, but what a glorious day
it is when we are able to bow our heads and finally surrender
everything.

What joy it is to look back over all that the Lord has led us
through and realize His purpose in both the good times and the bad
