Sin-consciousness, leads to sin-management which gets ones eyes to go inward in a bad way. It lead me to 35+ years of bipolar roller coaster riding Christianity. I was always concentrating on managing my short comings. My relationship with God was based on my ability to achieve and do. If man is relying on oneself, man will always fall short. This leads to shame, guilt, and condemnation.
I had read and known and even preached on Romans 8:1-2 but the wording in the Mirror Word opened it up like never before.
Condemnation and shame are no more once ones identity is achieved in how God defines man rather than how man defines oneself. Knowing that the only view that God has of me is that of perfect, forgiven, redeemer, whole, and His son changes everything. My realization of His view of me eliminates my need for sin-management. Talk about mind blowing freedom.
1 Now the decisive conclusion is this: in Christ, every bit of condemning evidence against us is cancelled. (“Who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit.” This sentence was not in the original text, but later copied from verse 4. The person who added this most probably felt that the fact of Paul’s declaration of mankind’s innocence had to be made subject again to man’s conduct. Religion under the law felt more comfortable with the condition of personal contribution rather than the conclusion of what faith reveals. The “in Christ” revelation is key to God’s dealing with man. It is the PIN-code of the Bible. [See 1 Cor 1:30 and Eph 1:4].) The law of the Spirit is the liberating force of life in Christ. This leaves me with no further obligation to the law of sin and death. Spirit has superseded the sin enslaved senses as the principle law of our lives. (The law of the spirit is righteousness by faith vs the law of personal effort and self righteousness which produces condemnation and spiritual death which is the fruit of the DIY tree.)
There is no more distance or delay. I no longer look for some place in time down the road to where I can or will be acceptable to God. ..
I AM NOW! I was perfect to him before the world was made. I am made in His template of His own DNA! (Eph 1:4). No toil no striving, my original identity now shines!
I was listening to a YouTube video of Don Keathley this morning and he was speaking of Paul’s life and the transition he went through after his Emmaus Road experience. Paul did not immediately go out and share with the world, he instead went into the wilderness to contemplate and marinate in what he had gone through.
Don said something to the effect..
“it’s not about having God revealed to you bout about having God revealed in you.” Been thinking about that most of the day. It’s that revelation that has impacted me huge like.
It takes the God of the universe and puts Him inside oneself rather in some distant realm. It trashes distance and delay. No longer a being to strive to meet but one who has been waiting on each one of us. He is in each one of us right now. Not requiring anything of us to obtain this closeness. It’s a gift a free gift from a God’s very essence is complete love and nothing else.
When Grace Transforms Culture – Pr. Don Keathley: http://youtu.be/NpnMujeMwOw
So when we say “Wow! Did God ever show up tonight! ”
What are we thinking? This implies he comes and goes and shows up when He pleases or when we really press in or impress Him. It implies that “we” did something to bring God in, as in we coerced Him in some way.
That was me, that was my mentality for 30+ years. Maybe I prayed more fervently, maybe the praise and worship was that good, maybe I kept my thoughts more pure that week then the week before, or maybe….. well maybe you get what I’m getting at. But in case you don’t I’ll lay it out there. He has never left. He has never thought less of you and I ever. His love is is very essence he is not bi-polar. He does not change His view of mankind ever. He forgave us before the world was formed (Ephesians 1:4) He reconciled “ALL” things not just the ones He thought were pressing into Him, but ALL! (Colossians 1:20). Nothing I could ever do could change that!
I used to run from Him when I felt guilty and ashamed of my self because I was so sin conscious. Romans 8:1 says there is “no more condemnation for those in Christ…” If he reconciled ALL , He brought us ALL into Him. There is no separation from Him. There is no ability for Him to “show up” He’s already and always in you! It’s like The Matrix, we need to wake up and realign our thinking. We or I have aways felt it was on me to coerce God or had to attain some spiritual level to be worthy.
You always hear John 3:16 but you need to also look beyond 16
John 3:16-18 NLT
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him…
Those who believe in Him are new creations ALL is new! There is now no more condemnation!
My identity your identity is found in this! His definition of you is forgiven, holy, pure, whole, complete (NOW!). There is no distance and delay in your j I kķlllllllllllllj standing to God. It was a done deal. You are not partially righteous or sanctified when you believe, you are complete at that moment! It’s like a a treasure buried in a field. The field is just a field nothing special but once you realize there is gold in the ground it now has known worth or value. It was there all along! But it was undervalued because the owner did not know what was inside.
Man is that land. We have God Himself inside of all of us but we live on a lower plane a lower consciousness. We see the short comings while God sees the Gold.
We think it is amazing when God shows up because that is what we have allowed ourselves to be deceived into believing. In reality He is there all the time He never leaves or His power never wanes. It’s our belief or inability to comprehend that is the issue.
Is it “when God shows up” or when we open our eyes to see Him sitting there, He’s been waiting for us on our inside not the other way around.
I was out for my midnight run. Generally I go out for my runs (ungraceful stumbling in the dark) sometime between 11:30 pm and 1:00 am. I do this for three basic reasons;
2. In the dark your less likely to become a YouTube viral video
3. It’s my me time, it’s the time I can listen to YouTube teachings. Lately I have been streaming Johnny Cash reading the Bible.
I have read this and heard sermons on Matthew 17 and have always walked away thinking what can I do to walk in this? Always looking for the formula to get that “more than a mustard seed faith.”
English Standard Version (ESV)
16 And I brought him to your disciples, and they could not heal him.”
17 And Jesus answered, “O faithless and twisted generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him here to me.”
18 And Jesusrebuked the demon, and it[c] came out of him, and the boy was healed instantly.
19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”
20 He said to them,“Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
21 But this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
So, back to my thoughts. While jogging the other night I was listening to a teaching by a friend of mine, Chris Berglund and he went into this text.
I’ve always had a works based mentality in my Christiandom and have recently walked away from this mindset. I have been real going deep into much of Paul’s writings and have been purpose to revisit the Gospels. I probably need to do this sooner than later. I say this because many of my old ways of thinking need to be worked out.
Under my old paradigm I won have took Jesus’s really response as a full on rebuke.
“Oh faithless and and twisted generation, how long am I to be with you. ” maybe this was not a rebuke. Have you ever had a boss or someone you worked for? For example, say you botched up the paint mixing machine at work your first week on the job. Does your new boss rebuke you and yell at you or…. does he say something to the effect, “OK head up, I’m only going to be able to hold your hand for so long, listen up and learn what I have to show you.”? I’ve always seen that as a rebuke with attitude, I’m not sure it was anymore. We are told to see Him as our loving father a loving father first loves than corrects while building up.
The second part of this story happens later when the disciples come to Jesus in private. They ask why they were not able to cast the demon out of the person. Jesus replies in verse 20 it was because of their disbelief. It was their ability to see what they saw rather than what was to be.
It’s what they saw rather than what was.
In verse 21 He says ” this kind only comes out by prayer and fasting. ” this verse has always (in my head) made his ability to heal dependant upon my response or works. This has never made sense to me. So God can’t do something unless I prayer or fast? God is not dependent on man. In Chris’s teaching he brought up the idea that maybe Jesus was not talking about healing but maybe he was talking about faith or the ability to believe or see with God’s eyes. So I’m saying that disbelief only goes away through fasting (wanting what God has more than food) and prayer (spending ones time building that intimate relationship with dad).
It’s not about what I do but what He has done!
My view of God has been challenged immensely in the last 2 years. I have viewed the God and read the Bible through a paradigm of a wrathful and judgemental God. The way you view God will totally slant everything, I mean EVERYTHING in your life. Jesus always related to people out of love. He commanded us to walk in love. Never did he call us to judge others. “Judge not or you will be judged” or John 8 “I judge no one” or even with the woman at the well “let the him who has no sin cast the first stone.” He had ample times to judge but didn’t, he moved in love and compassion. He also said “I only do what my father in heaven does.” If Jesus moved in love, God moves out of love. God is not waiting up in heaven to smite people. He is a loving father! We are his children. I am putting on new glasses and putting on God’s love goggles as I read the bible, it can totally change your perception of what you “thought you knew.” Steve McVey has a great book “52 Lies Heard in Church Every Sunday.” He also has expanded it in a series of YouTube videos.
God likes mankind, he created us to be his kids. He really really likes you.
This makes sense to me and it does go against the traditional teaching on it. I would like to get some feedback and thoughts on what you think, feel free to reply below.

1 Throughout ancient times God spoke in many fragments and glimpses of prophetic thought to our fathers.
2 Now, the sum total of his conversation with man has finally culminated in a son. He is the official heir of all things. He is, after all, the author of the ages. Jesus is what has been on the tip of the Father’s tongue all along! (The revelation of man’s redeemed sonship, as revealed in Jesus, is the crescendo of God’s conversation with humanity. Throughout the ages he has whispered his name in disguise to be revealed in the fullness of time as the greatest surprise. The exact image of God, his very likeness, the authentic eternal thought, became voice and was made flesh in us. The composer of a concert masterpiece knew that the notes scribbled on a page would finally find its voice in a symphony of instruments.)
3 We have our beginning and our being in him. He is the force of the universe, sustaining everything that exists by his eternal utterance! Jesus is the radiant and flawless expression of the person of God. He makes the glory (doxa, intent) of God visible and exemplifies the character and every attribute of God in human form. (Gen 1:26, 27) This powerful final utterance of God (the incarnation revealing our sonship) is the vehicle that carries the weight of the universe. What he communicates is the central theme of everything that exists. The content of his message celebrates the fact that God took it upon himself to successfully cleanse and acquit humankind. The man Jesus is now his right hand of power, the executive authority seated in the boundless measure of his majesty. He occupies the highest seat of dominion to endorse our innocence! His throne is established upon our innocence. (“Having accomplished purification of sins, he sat down …”)
4 No angel can compete with him in rank or name. This is his rightful portion.
5 God did not address the angels when he said (in Psalm 2), “You are my son, today I have given birth to you! I am to you all that a Father can be to a son, and you are to me all that a son can be to a Father. (The resurrection of Jesus represents the rebirth of the human race.)
6 And when he leads his son in triumphant parade, as his firstborn, before the whole inhabited world, he says, “Let all God’s angels kiss his hand in adoration.” (See Ephesians 4:8, Scripture confirms that he led us as trophies in his triumphant procession on high; he repossessed his gift (likeness) in man. Quote from the Hebrew text, Ps 68:18, lakachta mattanoth baadam, thou hast taken gifts in man, in Adam. The gifts which Jesus Christ distributes to man he has received in man, in and by virtue of his incarnation. — Commentary by Adam Clarke. We were born anew in his resurrection.
[1 Pet 1:3, Hos 6:2] The fact that he ascended confirms his victorious descent into the deepest pits of human despair [Eph 4:9]. See John 3:13 [RSV], “No one has ascended into heaven but he who descended from heaven, even the son of man.” All mankind originate from above; we are anouthen, from above. He now occupies the ultimate rank of authority from the lowest regions, where he stooped down to rescue us to the highest authority in the heavens, having executed his mission to the full. Fallen man is fully restored to the authority of the authentic life of his design. [Eph 4:10])
7 He endorses the fact that the angels are his messengers; he made them to be swift like the wind and to move at the speed of lightning.
8 But when he addresses the son he says, “Your throne, O God, extends beyond the ages. The scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom” (Ps 45:6)
9 “You love righteousness and detest evil. Therefore, O God, your God anointed you with the oil of joy to stand head and shoulders above your associates.” (Ps 45:7)
10 “The earth traces its foundation back to you, the heavens also are your invention; they are all handmade by you.” (Ps 102:25)
11They shall become obsolete but you will remain, they shall show wear like an old garment;
12 and you will eventually roll them up as a mantle; they shall be replaced, but you remain “I am,” and your years will never cease. (Ps 102:26)
13 Neither was it the angels he had in mind when he said, “You are my executive authority (the extension of my right hand), take your position and witness how I make your enemies a place upon which you may rest your feet.” (Mt 22:42-45)
14 What role do the angels play in God’s strategy? They are all employed by God in the apostolic ministry of the Spirit to help administer the inheritance of salvation that belongs to mankind.

I came across this on Facebook today. I have never heard of Don Keathley before and if you just watched he looks like a typical evangelical baptist preacher, but his message is far from the evangelical messages I have heard over my lifetime.
One of the questions he brings out is “Are you following and ministering out of obligation or….. ?” Well listen to see what the or is.
Lately I have been contemplating 2 Corinthians 5 and the idea where Paul says that we should look at no man after the flesh but the same way that God looks at each of us. This has really been making me think. Most of my life I have looked at people and in my mind consciously or unconsciously been labeling good bad, righteous unrighteous… well you get the idea. I also condemned myself relentlessly. I was always in a state of shame. Never was I able to meet the standards set forth by the ten commandments and the law. Romans 8:1 became alive to me over a year ago. The idea that there is now NO condemnation for those in Christ was mind blowing. Don Keathley also brings out John 8:15 ” You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one.” Jesus’s own words. He judges no one! If he also does only what the Father does…. Does that mean God no longer is in the judging business? I now can see others differently because I now can look at myself differently. I can now take myself out of the righteousness equation. I always had assumed that “self” was a variable, I was wrong. Grace, salvation, righteousness, sanctification, etc are all free gifts that are free. I have no participation in it beyond acceptence. I have no part of it, I am not necessary to the equation.
1 Corinthians 1:30
And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption,
Christ became righteousness, sanctification, and redemption for us with out any needed participation on our part.
1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins
2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—
3 among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body[a] and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.[b]
4 But[c] God, beingrich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us,
5 evenwhen we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—
6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
This is kind of like Grace 101 but so much more. I encourage you to listen and or watch but I really received a lot.
Grace VS Radical Grace –
Pr. Don Keathley:
1 My name is Paul. My colleague, Timothy, and I are together in this mission ordained by the purpose of God, representing the ministry of Jesus Christ.
2 We greet you with grace, which is the blessing of his favor and friendship; and honor you who are in Colossae as saints and brothers included in Christ. God is our Father and Jesus Christ our Master.
3 Every time we pray for you we thank God for you. Together with our Lord Jesus Christ we enjoy a common origin in the Father.
4 The reports of your belief in Christ Jesus and your love for every devote follower inspires us.
5 Heaven (the spiritual realm) is the limitless reservoir of your expectation. The announcement of the goodness of God is not far-fetched or too good to be true. The word you heard is absolutely true!
6 This word resonates within you and its appeal is prevailing in the whole world. The harvest is evident everywhere and gaining ground; as also witnessed in your own experience from the moment you heard and understood the true implication and the relevance of his grace. (“My greatest joy is to realize that your faith is announced throughout the entire world. The total cosmos is our audience!” [Rom 1:8] Paul always sees the larger audience when he addresses the individual.)
7 Your experience is consistent with the teaching you received from our dear co-worker Epafras. He is passionate about your well being in Christ.
8 He told us how much you love us in the spirit;
9 and so we have become inseparably linked to you. Our constant desire for you is that you might be overwhelmed with the knowledge of God’s dream for your lives. We pray that the pattern of his wisdom and thoughts will fall into place for you in all spiritual understanding. (The word, sunieimi, means a joining together as of two streams; a fusion of thought.)
10 Go on a walkabout tour to explore the extent of the land that is yours under his Lordship. Now you can conduct yourselves appropriately towards him, pleasing him in every harvest of good works that you bear. Meanwhile, you continue to increase in your intimate acquaintance with that which God knows to be true about you. This results in the most attractive and fulfilled life possible. (The word, peripateo, means to walk about everywhere. The knowledge of God is not our perception of him, but his knowledge of us; to know even as we have always been known. [Jer 1:5, 1 Cor 13:12])
11 You are empowered in the dynamic of God’s strength; his mind is made up about you! He enables you to be strong in endurance and steadfastness with joy. (His glorious power, or doxa, comes from dokeo, to recognize for what it really is, true opinion; God’s intention—his mind made up.)
12 We are grateful to the Father who qualified us to participate in the complete portion of the inheritance of the saints in the light. (The light of the Gospel reveals what God accomplished to transform the sinner into a saint; from hagos, an awful thing to hagios, a consecrated object: “call no man unholy or unclean.” [Acts 10:28])
13 He rescued us from the dominion of darkness (the sense-ruled world, dominated by the law of performance) and relocated us into the kingdom where the love of his son rules. (Darkness is not a force, it is the absence of light. [See Eph 4:18] A darkened understanding veiled the truth of our redeemed design from us; translating exousia, from ek, origin or source, and eimi, I am. Thus, confused about who I am until the day that we heard and understood the grace of God in truth.)
14 In God’s mind mankind is associated in Christ; in his blood sacrifice we were ransomed; our redemption was secured; our sins were completely done away with. (The Greek word for sin, hamartia is a compound word, ha, without, and martia from meros, form or our true portion. Sin distorts. Sin robbed us of our allotted portion, the life of our design.)
15 In him the image and likeness of God is made visible in human life in order that every one may recognize their true origin in him. He is the firstborn of every creature. (What darkness veiled from us he unveiled. In him we clearly see the mirror reflection of our original life. The son of his love gives accurate evidence of his image in human form. God can never again be invisible!)
16 Everything that is begins in him whether in the heavenly realm or upon the earth, visible or invisible, every order of justice and every level of authority, be it kingdoms or governments, principalities or jurisdictions; all things were created by him and for him.
17 He is the initiator of all things therefore everything finds its relevance and its true pattern only in him.
18 The ekklesia (church) is the visible expression (body) of which Jesus is the head. He is the principle rank of authority who leads the triumphant procession of our new birth out of the region of the dead. His pre-eminent rank is beyond threat. (“ … leading the resurrection parade” —The Message)
19 The full measure of everything God has in mind for man indwells him. (“So spacious is he, so roomy, that everything of God finds its proper place in him without crowding.” — The Message)
20 He initiated the reconciliation of all things to himself. Through the blood of the cross God restored the original harmony. His reign of peace now extends to every visible thing upon the earth as well as those invisible things which are in the heavenly realm. (The heavens, ouranos, a place of elevation, from oros, a mountain, from airo, to lift, to raise, to elevate, “Not only that, but all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe, people and things, animals and atoms, get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of his death.” — The Message. )
21 Your indifferent mind-set alienated you from God into a lifestyle of annoyances, hardships, and labors. Yet he has now fully reconciled and restored you to your original design. (The word, poneros, means annoyances, hardships, and labors, often translated as evil. [See Septuagint: tree of knowledge of good and hard labor!] To reconcile: apokatallasso, fully restored to the original value. [In Thayer Definition: to change, exchange, as coins for others of equivalent value.])
22 He accomplished this in dying our death in a human body; he fully represented us in order to fully present us again in blameless innocence, face-to-face with God; with no sense of guilt, suspicion, regret, or accusation; all charges against us are officially cancelled.
23 Remain under the influence of what your faith knows to be true about you, firmly consolidated in the foundation of your belief so that nothing can distract you from the expectation of the Gospel; a hope that is consistent with what you have heard. Just as I, Paul, am in the ministry to proclaim the one and only message that rings true with resonance in all of creation under heaven. (The dimension of the invisible spiritual realm. “You stay grounded and steady in that bond of trust, constantly tuned in to the Message, careful not to be distracted or diverted. There is no other Message—just this one. Every creature under heaven gets this same Message. I, Paul, am a messenger of this Message.” —The Message.)
24 This is why no form of suffering can interfere with my joy. Every suffering on your behalf is just another opportunity to reinforce that which might still be lacking (in your understanding) of the affliction of Christ on behalf of his body which is the church. (The inconvenience that Paul might be suffering on behalf of the believers is not to add to the sufferings of Christ—as though the sufferings of Christ on our behalf were insufficient but it is to further emphasize and confirm the principle of unselfish love that constrains New Testament ministry.)
25 I am an administrator in God’s economy; my mission is to make his word known to you with utmost clarity.
26 The element of prophetic mystery was concealed for ages and generations but is now fully realized in our redeemed innocence.
27 In us God desires to exhibit the priceless treasure of Christ’s indwelling; every nation will recognize him as in a mirror! The unveiling of Christ in human life completes man’s every expectation. (He is not hiding in history, or in outer space nor in the future, neither in the pages of scripture, he is merely mirrored there to be unveiled within you. Mt 13:44, Gal 1:15, 16)
28 This is the essence and focus of our message; we awaken every man’s mind, instructing every individual by bringing them into full understanding (flawless clarity) in order that we may prove (present) everyone perfect in Christ. (Translating vous + tithemi as to re-align every mind with God’s mind. The word, sophos, comes from sophes meaning clear, clarity. The word, paristano, comes from para, sphere of influence, closest possible association, and histemi, meaning to stand, to exhibit with evidence. The word, teleios, means perfect, without shortcoming and fully efficient.)
29 Your completeness in Christ is not a remote goal, but your immediate reference! My labor now exceeds any zeal that I previously knew under the duty-driven law of willpower. I am laboring beyond the point of exhaustion, striving with intense resolve with all the energy that he mightily inspires within me. (eis, a point reached in conclusion.)
Martyn Lloyd Jones has made the statement “What’s true of Him is true of you.” many times over. If I say this to people I often get the odd stare or the reaction of What! It seems to many to be heretical, but is it?
1 Jonn 4:17 and 1 John 2:8 both have the verbage stating as he is we are also and which is true in Him and in you. Is it so brazen a statement? Or are we just believing less than what we are called to be?
We were created in God’s very image. I’m not saying we are gods but yes we are definitely more than we have been lead to think. We are like Him, we are more spirit based and eternal than we are physical. He is our source. He is our dad. We are his heirs and as his heirs we can walk in that place of sonship and authority.
The prodigal son and his brother never lost that relationship bond to their father. They both were full heirs at all times. They both were decieved into thinking less than that and because of that, they both needed some Dr Phil time (ie. Identity counseling) to be restored to their original relationship to their father.
Do you need some spiritual Dr. Phil time?
1 John 2:7-8
7 Beloved, I am writing you no new commandment, but an old commandment that you had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word that you have heard.
8 At the same time, it is a new commandment that I am writing to you, which is true in him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining.
7 My beloved family, I know that the words I write to you here may not immediately remind you of Moses; this does not mean that it is a new doctrine, it is the ancient conversation that echoes God’s voice prophetically! It is indeed the very conclusion of the word which you have heard from the beginning!
8 And yet it is a glorious new message that I am writing to you! You may ask, “How can that which is old also be new?” Herein is the secret of its newness: whatever is true of Jesus is equally true of you! The days of the dominance of darkness as a reference to human life, are over! The true light surely shines with bold certainty and illuminates your life as it is unveiled in Christ.
(The word kainos means, fresh, recent, unused, unworn, of a new kind, unprecedented, novel, uncommon, unheard of. The freshness of this encounter is celebrated in a fellowship of exactly the same oneness enjoyed between the Father and the Son! The word parago suggests that darkness no longer has any sway over you. The word ede, even now: – already, by this time; from ē [pronounced ay] an adverb of confirmation; assuredly: – surely; and dē [pronounced day] which is a particle of emphasis or explicitness; now, then, etc.: – also, and, doubtless, now, therefore.)
I have been listening to these YouTube clips this past week, I highly recommend them. Listen or watch them will knock your socks off!
