What is the True Gospel?

If Paul were writing to the modern church today, what would he say? The very same things he said to the churches in his day.  Preach the true gospel.  The message has never changed.  It has always been and will always be the simple message of only Jesus Christ, Him crucified, buried, risen and coming again.  The church at Colossai had become buried in philosophy, eastern mysticism and judaistic legalism. So Paul declared, "In Christ are hidden all treasures of wisdom and knowledge". And he also warned, "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit after the traditions of men and not after Christ."Satan has and always will try and take us off the main message of Jesus Christ.  I listened to a leading TV preacher the other day and in his 30 minute message, he never once mentioned Jesus Christ. Rather how to live abundantly, prosperously and successfully through 5 simple steps, evidently without Christ. We must always be aware of the danger of life outside of Christ at the center.  Paul summed it up when he said, "In Christ we live, move and have our being".  He also added, "For me to live is Christ".

Power of the Tongue

I teach a lot on our "spirit man" and how God has already downloaded everything we need for life and godliness in us when we receive Christ. II Peter 1:3  "As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue." That is why our "spirit man" is declared holy and complete in Christ at the moment we are saved or converted to Christ.  This truth can transform your life! But only if you understand this and know how to release it into the natural world around you, otherwise it does you no good.  You can also go to my teaching on the Spirit, Soul and Body video for further revelation. But here I want to address one of the most powerful truths you will ever receive for your spiritual growth and well being. This truth presents several spiritual axioms for your life:

1. We must stop asking God for something that He has already given inside of us through Christ.  i.e. our healing, our daily needs, our fullness in Christ. 
2. We must passionately desire to know Christ more intimately. "In Christ are hidden all treasures of wisdom and knowledge".  Colossians 2:3  (You cannot speak and release something you do not know)
3. We must access our "spirit man" and release him into our natural world. (We must access our spirit man through the Holy Spirit's power.  I use tongues, singing in the Spirit, scripture memory, etc.) 

How do we do this?  God has designed our spirit to be released through our confession! With your mouth you begin your new life in Christ through confession.  Romans 10:10 "For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation".  I have become deeply aware of every word I speak.  My mouth holds life and death. Therefore, I refuse to speak empty words or words of self destruction, even words that affect the atmosphere around me.  
What is our problem?  James says we cannot control our tongue!  James 3:8 "But no man can tame the tongue.  It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison."  We must "walk in the Spirit" to keep our tongue under control.  We need a greater power over our tongue than our natural man.  Please watch this video... it may save your life!
