The Operation of God

The Operation of God is the Focus of the Bible. God talked about it all throughout the Old Testament. God shows us how He accomplished it all throughout the New Testament. The Bible calls it “the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom.” Jesus said the Holy Spirit would guide us into all truth so we could understand it.

Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. Colossians 2:12 

The Operation of God is the theme of the Bible and it is also the secret key that unlocks the eternal treasure that lies hidden within your heart. Man had a problem that was impossible to solve which required a supernatural solution only God could solve. I call it the death problem. In the Garden of Eden a great catastrophe occurred that affected every human ever born. Death has reigned over man ever since. Death was never a part of God’s original plan. Death is an enemy of God and man. In this passage of scripture it says we not only have been crucified with Jesus, but we are even risen with Him by faith in the Operation of God.

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Genesis 3:15

Did you know that when Adam was in the Garden of Eden, you were there? Did you know that when Adam sinned you were there. When Adam broke his fellowship with God you were there. When Adam was separated from God forever you were there. It’s true. You were in Adam. The whole human race was within Adam’s loins so when he died spiritually, we all died spiritually. That is why we all die physically. The first thing God did in response to Adam’s rebellion against God and obedience to Satan, was to give us His promise to fix the death problem in Genesis 3:15. The whole Bible is about God’s methodical goodness and wisdom towards man through the Operation of God. It is the Grace of God to save everyone that believes in the Operation of God through Jesus Christ.

The Death Problem was a problem that was impossible for man to solve which required a supernatural solution only God could provide. Steven Moore

God sent Jesus from Heaven to earth to fix the death problem. The Operation of God is now a historical fact, and it accomplished something that was and still is impossible for any religion to do. Through the Operation of God death was put to death bringing Life and Immortality to light.  Nobody likes surgery, but this surgery was done perfectly by God and you didn’t feel a thing. God did heart surgery and God’s scalpel cut was from Heaven to earth, and as far as the east is to the west. It was one shot that affects us three ways.

The Operation of God was perfect and it was a complete success. It is finished, however it is not yet fulfilled. Multitudes have yet to experience the power of God. God included you in His operation. God’s divine surgery must be activated in your heart in order to experience eternal results. In a split second God will quicken you and you will pass from death to life in the Spirit if you will only ask Him with faith in your heart. If you want to see the power of God, just focus your eyes on the Operation of God. It’s right there in our book in black and white. Herein lies the Secret of Eternity that will change your life Forever. Don’t leave life without it.

Faith Is Not A Blank Check

One of my favorite Bible teachers says that, “Faith is like a blank check.” The blank check of faith is there for you fill in your need or desire and use it. I respect that and I respect him, but I would rather think of faith being more like a cashier’s check than a blank regular check.

A cashier’s check is written for a specific amount and for a specific purpose. It is a one-time authorized payment for a one-time need. If faith were a blank check to fill in whatever we wanted, why would we then have to seek God and coordinate with His will. Once we hear and get the OK of faith, we can’t go and use it for something else. We can only use the faith God give us for what is approved and intended.

Faith is issue specific and time specific. Faith is God’s specific promise coming alive in our heart for a specific desire. Faith, the Bible says, comes by hearing, so we cannot hear ‘healing’ and then go out and expect to receive financial blessing. The words of God are supernatural seeds. As seeds are specific, so the promises of God are specific, and the resulting faith is specific – as specific as a cashier’s check.

My Response

This article is reproduced here with my touches so that we can know that even to get a loan from a bank, it is for a specific purpose and we have to keep our word as to what we use the funds for.  God is very good  at handling the business of Heaven at least as well as we do here on Earth.  So I want to commend this article to show us all that the more specific we get with our request, then God can judge the request on its merits and if it lines up with His purposes, before He gives the request the “green light”.

You know, we do the same thing with our kids.  They ask us to go somewhere, let’s say a concert on a school night and it’s over at 9pm.  This may be good if the child is at least in junior high school and up, and nothing else important is going on.  But let’s just change the time of the concert to ending at midnight on a school night.  Probably most of us would give it the “red light”.  It just isn’t wisdom.

Let’s not be so Heavenly minded that we cannot understand God’s dealings with us as His children are very similar to our dealings with our children.

I hope this puts some perspective on why some prayers get answered and some don’t seem to get answered since there wasn’t enough information, or the information negated the wisdom of answering in the affirmative; as in the case “a late night concert on a school night”  will just get a big “No.”

But without Faith, it is impossible to please God; for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6

Let’s be daring today and all year. Let’s believe God for BIG THINGS, He loves to go for the Gold (just like we do).  There were many people in West Berlin and East Berlin, Germany from 1961 to 1989 that separated who prayed for the Berlin Wall to come down.  This Wall symbolized the boundary between democracy and Communism during the Cold War.  God is so amazing that yes He loves to answer our prayers no matter how big and impossible.

But a prayer to marry someone else’s husband is not even worth praying because it is against the will of God and the will of the married couple.

So don’t get too bogged down in a couple of unanswered prayers, just Go-For-It!  And see what God will do…

My personal recent example:  A few days ago, my friend is a car salesman who was tied up taking tests for certification for 4 days and was unable to have customers in which to make a sale and have a paycheck.  So I prayed that God would give him a quick and easy customer that would produce a car sale that would earn $400 for the support of his family for this week of working for free.  Sure enough, God answered that 1pm prayer by 7:30pm that same night.

It was a sudden customer who just knew exactly what car they wanted and came in to buy it. Wow– Thank you God for doing what we could not do for ourselves.  God really does love us and loves to show Himself strong on our behalf just because we love Him.

What A Mighty God we serve!

What Do We Control?

Have you ever noticed that you and me — every person — keeps control of their life way too long before we actually admit to ourselves and to God that we cannot control even the next moment.

But we have fooled ourself into thinking that we have that power.

The truth is I can barely control my next thought, word, or deed — and with God I can do a little better.  But without the tools that God has given me to use, even being a Christian won’t change much of our way we look at life on this earth.  And the worst part, we pretty much refuse to look toward the future of our very own death; which could happen any moment with just a simple body malfunction of a heart attack.

Does this sound a little depressing?  Yes, you say.
Well we cannot get over our fears until we face them.

One fear of every person is I am not in control of much.  But that truly is a good place to start.  First, we make a good size mess of our own lives, then we watch our closest relatives do a pretty bang-up job on their lives.  Sometimes, looking at all the mess around us does getting pretty depressing.

BUT GOD
Those words I have held onto through some stormy waters of life.

Remember this, we don’t control anything, But God does.
God knows what you fear, what and who you love, and He accepts you as you are, but He sure would like the opportunity to be invited in to help you along your path of life!

I wonder if I had turned over the control reigns a lot sooner how things would be now, don’t you?  So let’s start today.

God, I come to you on bended knee to give myself, my whole life, my health, my family, my relatives, and all my cares to you.
Please take them from me now, and I will let you do all the caring for them without my help.  I refuse to deceive myself into thinking I have helped take care of these things.

God, you are the only ONE big enough to take care of my life, all that concerns me, the whole world, and the entire universe.  Thanks that I can give to you my big laundry list of concerns and let my heart go free from the burden of these things that I am not capable of carrying.

The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit. Psalm 34:18 

Personal desperation can jar us out of second hand stories of the power of God.
We need to invite God into our very own lives.
So what are you going to do with all your struggles?

Then the Most Amazing thing happens when we give all our cares to Him–then God begins to turn things around:

1.  By giving you His peace and His power to rise above the problems, cares, etc

2. With the anointing that God empowers you with, you are transformed into a different person — you no longer feel weak, and useless–Because God just loves to transform our wormy self into a butterfly for His kingdom.

3. Then He quietly reveals an answer to you in your heart of how to deal with some of your list.  And your “Faith” is revived.  And your strength is renewed.

4. You go forward with a “Facelift” in your relationship with God, in your faith, and you are encouraged to know God loves you so much that He is personally involved in your life and knows the answers to bring forth your desired results.

Your Ending scripture will be:

Ephesians 3:16-21

vs 16  That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man:

vs 17  That Christ may dwell in your heart by faith; that you, being, rooted and grounded in love

vs 19  To know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.

vs 20 Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think

vs 21 Unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end.  Amen

Do you want to live a life that at the end was “your idea of fine”, or even less — OR
Do you want to experience the miraculous of God taking you from faith to faith, and from glory to glory in your personal life and circumstances.

Start today! Call God up on the phone in Prayer. Invite Him to share your day with you so He can bless you. Please start enjoying the journey that God has set before you by inviting Him to be your All in all things concerning you!

In Christ’s love,   Bonnie

Don’t Leave Home without HIM

I want to tell you a story that at first may seem irrelevant to God and God things, but you will be surprised!

A while ago, my husband said that he wants to buy a very inexpensive house, 3 bedroom, 1 bath for $60,000 that has just been rebuilt due to a water heater explosion.  Inside of me, I felt a real indifferent feeling.  Then this statement came, “Well, go do it—without me.”  I was not dreaming of living in that state, nor in a very small house with only one bathroom.  I began to ask God what was so distasteful about the prospect that I would let him go and do it without me.

Then the Lord brought another incident to my mind.  A couple was here in Tulsa, OK attending a bible conference.  After eating dinner at our house, the man made the comment out of the blue; when I get home to Florida, I think I will buy a Toyota pick up truck.  That same distaste went off inside me.

Lately, the Lord has been sending me out on daily journeys with Him.  As I go out, I wonder what the Lord and I will do today? Will it be–encourage the hurting, heal the sick, find a new sweater that is perfect on me, or locate a new ministry headquarters?  But each day is my next adventure with God!

God made it clear to me that the 2 events mentioned above were daily events that humans do without God.  And to God, they are just as distasteful as my husband wanting to buy a house without me or my input.  The man buying a truck just because he could, of course it was going to be a cash purchase.  God was showing me how it feels when people do anything without Him.  It is distasteful to Him just like I experienced on those  2 events.

God was making a point to me that we either do things with Him or we do things withOUT Him.
Without Him:  is called–walking in the flesh.
With Him:  is called–walking in the Spirit.

I called my husband back and said, “Look do you want to buy a house because it is cheap and easy for us to do.  Or would you rather believe God for the house that would have alot more of the things we want.  My husband immediately said I would rather believe God for His good thing than this cheap and easy thing that I can do without God.

My husband said he was basing his decision on the economy at the time and not taking into account the God factor. He immediately changed his attitude and got back into FAITH and he thanked me for the spiritual correction.

Proverbs 14:12 (KJV)
12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

This is the whole message of the Bible.  We can live our whole lives with Him or without Him, but anything we do without Him may seem right but it is a “way of death”.  And whatever things we do without Him, when our works are tried with fire they will be burned up.  In other words, they will not profit us in the after life. Likewise, the things we do with Him, when tried by His Holy fire, they will remain as gold, silver, and precious stones to our account in Heaven.

So this exercise of daily journeys is for me to practice walking with God all the time and to do nothing without Him for these reasons:
1.  Anything done without God is a waste of time, money, and energy here on Earth.
2.  Anything done without God will not be rewarded in the next life.
3.  Anything done without God, is done under the curse and not under God’s blessing.
He was either involved or He wasn’t.

On the other hand, I’ve seen God manifest Himself in my affairs when I include Him by Faith.  I have been greatly surprised at what He brings to pass even many days after I do something very simple to the human reason.  I have to testify when God is involved it turns out much better and I am greatly satisfied when I see God involved in my daily doings.  We are always doing and rarely just being.  And I have discovered with God, when I am doing “more being” that is when God is doing “more of the doing”.  And the bottom line, God always does much better than I can do.

If you want to experience success in your affairs, truly live Life and get back home safely then I encourage you, “Don’t leave Home without Him”.

Covenant Rights or Positive Thinking?

My friend and I were talking today.  We pinpointed a financial need that we would come into agreement over.  My friend said, “Sure, I will believe with you for that.”

I did not think that positive thinking over a situation is the new Christian format for how we attack our problems.  I responded, “So just believing is all we need to do?  Instead of having faith in our faith, why don’t we base our prayer of agreement on what Jesus and His blood have purchased for us, and stand on our covenant rights.”
