It can be forgiven — but sometimes it requires reconciliation to be in Christ and free!

If you’ve prayed a repentance prayer and still don’t feel guilt free, sometimes saying a prayer is not enough. Sometimes we must reconcile to be free, to have no condemnation:

“There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are in Christ Jesus, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit” – Romans 8:1

Jesus said:

If therefore you are offering your gift [lifting up ‘holy’ hands to the Lord] at the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift [worshiping in Spirit and in truth].” – Mt. 5:23-24

This is why Paul was able to say:

“..I also practice always having a conscience void of offense toward God and men” – Acts 24:16.

Where we spend eternity depends on this, but reconciliation will also bring in revival (when we’re ‘ONE’ in Christ – John 17):

My 1990 Key-to-Revival Prophecy: “There is might and there is power and there is glory, but it is being withheld until these relationships are made right, until we love our brother enough to…”

…and healing:

Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed.” – James 5:16a

God is waiting to pour out His grace on us when we actually do Jesus’ greatest two commandments.
If our consciences condemn us, this probably isn’t the Devil, as many pastors teach. This is the Holy Spirit warning us to get right with each other so we can be clean and FREE from guilt — ‘ONE’ with each other!
To be going-to-heaven Christians and for Jesus to fill us with His joy and peace, we must be right with each other.
Let us be ‘ONE’ “that the world will know!”

FREEeeeeeeeee———-DOM!!!!!!!!!

Murillo: Punishing church members because they want a move of God — You never made Satan smile wider • Stop punishing those wonderful people who are hungry for the Holy Spirit to fall on your church • Catering to the lukewarm

It’s about time! I’ve been maligned by church leaders for telling the truth for decades for this very thing.

PUNISHING CHURCH MEMBERS BECAUSE THEY WANT A MOVE OF GOD
Posted on May 8, 2018 by mariomurilloministries
A growing number of Christians feel their church is doing a lot of things that don’t matter. Even successful programs don’t matter to them. They believe only a move of God can save us now. [It’s actually now even too late for that.]
They believe we have no time to play games. They are frustrated that church is catering to the lukewarm members. Most of all, they feel that they are being punished for wanting a move of God.
I want to direct myself toward leaders who are guilty of correcting members who yearn for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. You’ve got it totally backwards. Those who are hungry for a move of God are the best thing that ever happened to your church.
If you wounded a hungry saint’s heart, it was a spectacular mistake. They, and not the lukewarm, should be setting the tone for your church.
Somewhere, we got the idea—I believe it came from the pit of hell—that exuberant worship, preaching with unction and conviction, fiery prayer meetings, and deliberate soul winning are the “old ways.”
They are not old ways—they are timeless ways. In fact, they transcend time. They are the chosen weapons.
You never made Satan smile wider than when you punished someone in your congregation for wanting a move of God. …
 
They yearn for the miracle that will stop America’s slide toward oblivion—they wish for an act of the Holy Spirit so real and widespread that it impacts, crime, injustice, addiction, and despair.
You may be punishing people God is stirring. You may be trying to put out a flame that God lit in their heart. …
 
The first step is to stop punishing those wonderful people who are hungry for the Holy Spirit to fall on your church.

Jesus in John 17

20 Not for these only do I pray, but for those also who believe in me through their word, 21 that they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that you sent me.
22 The glory which you have given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, even as we are one; 23 I in them, and you in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that you sent me, and loved them, even as you loved me. 24 Father, I desire that they also whom you have given me be with me where I am, that they may see my glory, which you have given me, for you loved me before the foundation of the world.
25 Righteous Father, the world hasn’t known you, but I knew you; and these knew that you sent me. 26 I made known to them your name, and will make it known; that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and I in them.”

It beautifully touches on the race issues within those times and with that I hope that my interpretation does not take away from it’s original intent.

Lyrics:
I was born by the river in a little tent
Oh and just like the river I’ve been running ev’r since
It’s been a long time, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will
It’s been too hard living, but I’m afraid to die
‘Cause I don’t know what’s up there, beyond the sky
It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will
I go to the movie and I go downtown
Somebody keep tellin’ me don’t hang around
It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will
Then I go to my brother
And I say brother help me please
But he winds up knockin’ me
Back down on my knees,
There have been times that I thought I couldn’t last for long
But now I think I’m able to carry on
It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

Let's Be Like Paul, so we can be Together as 'ONE' — Paul worked out his own salvation through fear and trembling, running his race to win — and so can we. 'ONE' Can Happen!!!

Sadly, virtually all churches today have disqualified leaders who are not blameless, and who teach diabolical false doctrines that are putting the church into bondage.
But we can be like Paul, overcoming by God’s grace, running our race to win!!!
I put together this list:
– –
Paul worked out his own salvation by God’s grace/enablement/empowerment, as he taught others to do:

 …work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God who works in you both to will and to work, for his good pleasure. – Php. 2:12-13

I beat my body and bring it into submission, lest by any means, after I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected. – 1 Cor. 9:27

Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts. – Gal. 5:24

Paul didn’t just say it, but actually made Jesus Lord of his life, ‘pressing on’ to take hold of ‘that’:

I count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord, for whom I suffered the loss of all things, and count them nothing but refuse, that I may gain Christ and be found in him…. that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, becoming conformed to his death; if by any means I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

Not that I have already obtained, or am already made perfect; but I press on, if it is so that I may take hold of that for which also I was taken hold of by Christ Jesus. Brothers, I don’t regard myself as yet having taken hold, but one thing I do. Forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, think this way. If in anything you think otherwise, God will also reveal that to you. Nevertheless, to the extent that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule. Let us be of the same mind. – Php. 3:8-16

As Paul predicted, most are on the highway to hell. We, however, can overcome like Paul:

For the time will come when they will not listen to the sound doctrine, but, having itching ears, will heap up for themselves teachers after their own lusts; and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside to fables. …

I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept the faith. – 2 Tim. 4:3-4, 7

Paul made sure he was ALWAYS right with God and men:

Herein I also practice *ALWAYS* having a CONSCIENCE VOID OF OFFENSE toward God and men. (Acts 24:16).

The writer to Hebrews was in complete sync with Paul:

Therefore let us also, seeing we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising its shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

For consider him who has endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, that you don’t grow weary, fainting in your souls. …

Therefore, lift up the hands that hang down and the feeble knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that which is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.

Follow after peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no man will see the Lord, looking carefully lest there be any man who falls short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and many be defiled by it; lest there be any sexually immoral person, or profane person, like Esau, who sold his birthright for one meal. For you know that even when he afterward desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for a change of mind though he sought it diligently with tears. – Heb. 12:1-3, 12-17

When Paul saw Jesus face to Face, he had no condemnation. Why, because he made sure he walked according to the Spirit. He put to death the deeds of the body so he could live:

There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are in Christ Jesus, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. …

the mind of the Spirit is life and peace….

…if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God.

we are children of God; and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if indeed we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified with him. – Romans 8:1, 6, 13-14, 16-17

Let’s be like Paul, overcoming by the Holy Spirit’s grace/enablement, running our races to win!:

…let us walk by the same rule. Let us be of the same mind. – Php. 3:8-16

Jesus desires not only that we abide in Him so we can live eternally with Him, but that we’d be ‘ONE’ with Him and each other that His joy would remain in us and that OUR JOY WOULD BE FULL!:

1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the farmer. 2 Every branch in me that doesn’t bear fruit, he takes away. Every branch that bears fruit, he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already pruned clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. 5 I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If a man doesn’t remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you. 8 “In this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; and so you will be my disciples. 9 Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and remain in his love. 11 I have spoken these things to you, that my joy may remain in you, and THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE MADE FULL.

12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another, even as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends, if you do whatever I command you.

Jesus promised to give us His glory as we become ‘ONE’ with each other in Him that the WORLD WILL KNOW!:

Not for these only do I pray, but for those also who believe in me through their word, that they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that you sent me.

The glory which you have given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, even as we are one; I in them, and you in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that you sent me, and loved them, even as you loved me. Father, I desire that they also whom you have given me be with me where I am, that they may see my glory, which you have given me, for you loved me before the foundation of the world. that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and I in them.” – John 17:20-26

‘ONE’ is what we should be focusing on — overcoming, like Paul, strong together:

‘Let Us Be ONE’ Prophecy Continues 10/8/08: “It’s TOO LATE to REVERSE what’s been done for MY MEN have been REJECTED … Now is the Time to OVERCOME and GET RIGHT With ALL … FREEeeeeeeeeeeeee———DOM at last … Your HEART will SWELL with LOVE and it will be EASY to REMAIN In Me when others are On The BOAT With You”

 

(video) Chuck Baldwin 4/16/17: Christ Risen From The Dead” — “AMERICA IS COLLAPSING from within, and the CHURCHES CHALLENGE NOTHING!” • “Everything Jesus and the disciples did was a challenge to Rome and Jewry” • Trump wanted to free the churches of the free speech stifling Johnson amendment to 501(c)3, but many cowardly pastors want the free speech prohibitions kept as is: “Mr. Trump, please don’t take away the 501(c)3 [Johnson amendment], if you take it away everyone might know I’m a coward!” • “Preachers don’t want revival. They’re getting great benefits from being cowards in the pulpits” • “If you are a true Christian, you cannot help but challenge evil rule and authority because you have a King Who sits on the throne of your heart…” • “Many of these ‘political’ battles are deeply spiritual” • “We promise to be a thorn in his side as long as we live!”

The entire beginning is excellent; though, I didn’t transcribe anything until here:

20:30 “The United States of America fast is becoming a modern day Roman empire. We are behaving just like the Roman empire years ago. And if we continue, we will face the same result as did that Roman empire. And ladies and gentlemen, as the Roman empire collapsed into the dust bin of history, the Christians came out of their caves and came out from underground, and they continued to pronounce to the world: ‘Jesus rose from the dead!'”

29:20 WoW, sad and telling! Trump wanted to free the churches of the free speech stifling Johnson amendment to 501(c)3, but many PASTORS are COWARDS, and want the 501C3 federal speech prohibitions KEPT as is on churches because they’re too cowardly to speak out on key issues: “Mr. Trump, please don’t take away the 501(c)3 [Johnson amendment], if you take it away everyone might know I’m a coward!”

32:30 “Preachers don’t want revival. … They’re getting great benefits from being cowards in the pulpits.”

37:50 Chuck here sounds like he’s teaching the false doctrine of once-saved-always-saved (OSAS), teaching only “trusting in,” instead of also abiding in, for we must abide in Christ to have ‘no condemnation,’ no longer walking according to the flesh, but by the Spirit (Romans 8 in real Bibles). However, Chuck’s words at 46:58 are much better.

41:30 Jesus and His disciples challenged the political and religious authorities of the day. “Everything they did was a challenge to Rome and a challenge to Jewry.”

45:13 “America is in the miserable condition we are in, on the precipice of WWIII; we are on the verge of collapse from within; our society is decadent and immoral. We have a society very much like Rome that literally collapsed from within because of it’s own corruption. Our economic system is corrupt, our education system is corrupt, our political system is corrupt, our ‘Federal Reserve’ is corrupt, Washington D. C. is corrupt, much of local and state government is corrupt, our pulpits are corrupt, our churches are corrupt, our seminaries are corrupt, our law schools are corrupt, our business schools are corrupt. We are collapsing from within, and THE CHURCHES CHALLENGE NOTHING!”

46:58 “If you are a true Christian, you cannot help but challenge evil rule and authority because you have a King Who sits on the throne of your heart Whose word and Whose law is superior to any law given by mortal men!”“You are either someone outside the rule of Christ and under the rule of evil authority, or you are someone in Christ, and outside the rule of evil authority. And each one of us must decide for ourselves which side of the line and which side of eternity we are on. That’s why so many of these ‘political’ battles that we face are not really political, but really they are deeply spiritual in nature. … It’s a battle between good and evil.”

58:00 “We promise to be a thorn in his side as long as we live!”

(2 min video) Francis Chan: Judgement? Have you read the Bible? • “When we’re perfectly ‘ONE’ they’re going to start believing…” • “I made a decision that even when this Book doesn’t make sense to me, I’m still going to submit to it”

“When we’re perfectly ONE and we’re striving side by side, the Bible says they’re going to start believing in their destruction and our salvation.”

“I made a decision that even when this Book doesn’t make sense to me, I’m still going to submit to it. And whenever I disagree with this Book, I assume I’m wrong. This is a big problem in our world today….”
