"The Young Messiah" - Misrepresentation of Christ

I went to see the movie, "The Young Messiah" and was disturbed by the false doctrine and misrepresentation of Jesus the True Messiah. The movie did, however, represent the false teaching of religion in many of America's churches. What is that false teaching?  That Jesus functioned on earth independent of the Father and the Holy Spirit. That as a child He did miracles before His anointing of Luke 4 and His baptism of Luke 3. The bible clearly shows us that Jesus functioned on earth as a man, under the authority of the Father.  In fact, Jesus could do nothing of Himself.  He said that in John 5:19 "Jesus gave them this answer: 'Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does." Jesus repeated that same answer all through the book of John.  (John 5:30, John 8:28) One of the most powerful verses on Jesus relationship to the Father is found in John 5:26-27. It is clear that the Father gave Jesus authority on earth to execute judgment, because Jesus was the "Son of Man". Jesus, totally on this earth, functioned under transmitted authority. What are you saying Jerry? Jesus laid aside His right to walk on this earth in His divine authority, but rather operated under transmitted authority from the Father. Why is this important? Because Jesus is demonstrating to us how to come under the Father's authority as men. Jesus never lost His divinity and always remained the Son of God, but became man to demonstrate how we can have the same authority He had.  This is clearly referred to in Philippians 2:5-7 "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men." That is why Jesus stated, "The works that I do, you shall do also, and greater works than these shall you do because I go to my Father."  John 14:12

Before Jesus left this earth He promised the disciples they could received the same power, the same authority He had.  Therefore they could do the same miracles, the same works that Jesus did.  Why?  Because He was going to transmit to US the same power through the Holy Spirit that He received at His baptism and anointing in Luke 4!  This power upon the disciples began in John 20 when Jesus breathed upon them the Holy Spirit and said, "Receive ye the Spirit".  Then at Pentecost the same power fell on the 120.  Today the exact same power falls on us.  It has not changed. We can walk under the exact same anointing Jesus had. Therefore we can heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons and proclaim with authority "the kingdom is here". Unfortunately much of the modern evangelical church does not believe this.  So she remains intellectual and logical and not supernatural. Thank you Jesus for becoming a man and demonstrating to us how a "man" can function under authority.  So we too can, as men, walk in Your authority and power for Your glory!

                                         Transmitted authority - You can raise the dead!

God is Pleased With You ... Amazing Truth!

My wife and I have entered many days listening to a wonderful teacher Andrew Wommack. He is on at 6:00 am on CTN network. His teaching confronts many religious notions we are taught in our churches. I also sometimes go to my study during the night to study and pray. I also have Roku in my study since we have a Roku channel "WATV". We also have a guest bed in my study so I can rest occasionally during my studies and prayer. I recently happened to put on my headsets to not awaken my family during the night and fell asleep listening to a selected teaching on Youtube. But when I awakened my Youtube channel had advanced to this message I am presenting below, I listened intently and I was aware again of the amazing simple truth God reveals to Andrew. I challenge you to take some time and listen completely through this life changing message. Andrew answers the question, "Is God pleased with me?" I challenge you to take some time to listen to this entire message. It is a truth that realigns us. It shows how our spirit man is created in true righteousness, holiness, perfection. That you walk in forgiveness of all your past sins, present sins and even future sins. Enoch in Genesis 5:23-24 wore a tee-shirt "I PLEASE GOD" so God took him right off this earth. Enoch walked by faith in a revelation of God's righteousness that came thousands of years before Christ was even born. But Enoch believed God and it was counted to him.. righteousness. How much more do we please God through the full revelation of Christ's righteousness.
                                               Andrew Wommack's Message - 
                                               God God Is Pleased With You

Harmonious Living - The Kingdom of God

Because we are created in the image of God, the imprint of His kingdom is on our every cell, in every part of earth's natural harmony and in all things. Colossians says, "all things were made by Him and for Him and by Him all things consist" Our body resonates with the kingdom!  But without Christ, our spirit is dead and cannot access His Spirit life within.  Our spirit man died with Adam's death.  God had said to Adam in Genesis 2:17 "But you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die."  Man ate and man died spiritually. But God made a way for our spirit man to come back to life!  It is in His resurrection power found through Christ.  If we believe and receive that Christ died and rose again according to the gospel we are given spiritual life again and we are made in our spirit man a new creation!  This is a retuning of our life to His kingdom.  A realignment to the glory of His creative power. It is natural for man to be alive spiritually.  We were originally designed that way.  Sin is unnatural. It is a diviation from God's design. As E. Stanley Jones in his book "The Unshakable Kingdom" says, "man goes to pieces under sin. The world "evil" is "life" spelled backwords."  Proverbs says, "There is a way that seemeth right unto man, but the end thereof (that is of sin) are the ways of death."  Proverbs 14:12  What are the results of this realignment?  Romans 14:17 "But the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost."  May I suggest against popular religious reason, that it is not natural for man to sin. Why do we say it is "ugly as sin"?  Our nature cries out for harmony with our creator and with ourselves.  When you follow the kingdom principles you reap life and life more abundantly!  Will you agree with me... Father God "Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth and in my life as it is in heaven."?  You can learn more about the secrets of the Kingdom of God at Kingdom Life University.

A New Discovery - The Kingdom of God

Man is constantly searching for meaning. Where do we come from?  Why do we exist?  Where are we going?  These basic questions are imprinted on our very person. It is because God had placed within us a hidden treasure. Written in our cells is the very testimony of the Kingdom of God. When you seek first the kingdom of God and Jesus righteousness, everything else in life is added to you. (Matthew 6:33) The secret of His kingdom is in our very being. Our entire existence is waiting for the alignment of our mind to this truth.  But our mind cannot discover it.  It only comes through revelation to our spirit man by the Holy Spirit Himself. God placed within man the imprint of His image. Man has distorted the image with a false hope. A belief that we can know all things through our mind.  That science can measure and prove all things. We have bypassed the greatest source of all knowledge... Jesus Christ and His kingdom. "In Christ are hidden all treasures of wisdom and knowledge." Colossians 2:3 Man is hoping the discovery we are searching for exists outside of the Almighty and we as men can figure it all out. But true reality is found not in the natural but the Spirit.  Jesus said, the words I speak to you are Spirit and they are life. I John 5:6 in fact says "And it is the Spirit who testifies, for the Spirit is truth." Pilot asked Jesus, "What is truth?"  It is this insistent question that has plagued man from the time of the fall. But Jesus gave us some simple statements.  "I am the way the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father but by me."  John 14:6  Also Jesus said in John 8:32 "You will know the truth and the truth shall set you free." Hidden in the treasure of His kingdom are all the answers you are looking for.  Your purpose and destiny.  Your knowledge of who you are and who God is. No wonder Jesus said, "The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it hid it again, and they in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field."  Matthew 13:44  I challenge you to learn more about the kingdom of God in my recent series about the kingdom.  You can find the playlist on my YouTube channel under "jbrandt4him" .  I also ask you to please subscribe to my Youtube channel if you would. I appreciate it. How about ongoing studies on the Kingdom of God at our Kingdom Life University ?  We are becoming known as the triple "A" school.  Accredited, Accessible and Affordable.
