DIE TO REASONING – EXPERIENCE RESURRECTION WITH NEW IDEAS
HOW TO IMPLEMENT NEW IDEAS FROM THE LORD
Yeshua taught, “Except a grain of wheat falls into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth much fruit.” (John 12:24)
What is it that God is asking YOU to DIE TO at this point of your life and ministry?
If YOU will DIE to that thing, or to those things, about which God is speaking TO YOU, you will see resurrection!
When God gives you a NEW IDEA, the devil will tell you, “That is not reasonable; that is NOT wise. You shouldn’t do that.”
God wants you to be willing to respond to Him when He tells you to do something. If you’ll just give God the benefit of the doubt, you’ll start seeing more MIRACLES than ever before!
Learn to listen, and to obey, God in the little things as well as the big things!
Die to reasoning and let God GROW the NEW IDEA He gives you. Give Him the benefit of the doubt, and you will SEE resurrection of accomplishment in your purposes, your life, your business, your family, and your ministry!
There are certain limits to your abilities. However, if you will die to reasoning and listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit, you will be able to accomplish things:
Your mind has never conceived.
That people (even yourself) have said are impossible.
That the enemy (the devil) has said, You cannot do this!
Remember, the scripture says, "The things that are impossible with men are possible with God." (Luke 18:27)
I am aware by the Spirit of God that someone who is listening to me has an IDEA God has given you; however, you either:
Do not know HOW to accomplish it (you need wisdom from God); or,
You are not POSITIVE the idea came from God.
MY ADVICE TO YOU:
First, the enemy of your soul will always lie to your mind if have an IDEA, or are working on an idea, to reach people and nations for the Messiah of Israel.
Second, do NOT share your vision with others unless they are people who are involved directly in creative works of God. Read the examples below to encourage you.
EXAMPLE 1 - On one website search of like subject matter, out of over 63,000,000 (that's million) like subjects, we were #1. Also, there were several sites where we were #1 out of tens of thousands. I give ALL the credit to the Holy Spirit (Ruach ha Chodesh)! I turned down every piece of advice I received from media people directly involved with that industry. Some were friends. Some were experts with top credentials and experience in the field.
ASK GOD FOR WISDOM AND DO WHAT HE TELLS YOU!
EXAMPLE 2 - On one project that has reached some of the wealthiest Jews in the world and hundreds of thousands of people for the Messiah of Israel, I was told by a government agency that I could NOT do it: that it violated laws, codes, and restrictions five (5) different ways.
ASK GOD FOR WISDOM AND DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER!
EXAMPLE 3 - On one project the Lord gave me to do which has reached hundreds of thousands, if not millions, for Christ in many languages around the world, I was seeking feedback. I wanted the opinion, or advice, from someone. It was a far out IDEA and so I thought of the most far out person I was acquainted with to see what they thought of the IDEA. The person told me, It is too far out for me! That was my sign the idea was from God.
ASK GOD FOR WISDOM AND DON'T LISTEN TO OTHER PEOPLE!
EXAMPLE 4 - Before I went on one ministry trip, a good close brother in the Lord told me, You are NOT supposed to go on that trip. However, I decided to do what God told me and I went on the trip. By God's grace I reached many for Messiah Yeshua. Jews were saved, and God crossed my path with a person who had information they passed on to me before they died which helped me reach many, many Jews in Israel and around the world!
ASK GOD FOR WISDOM AND FINISH THE JOB!
EXAMPLE 5 - One project the Lord let me be part of - I actually only WATCHED Him put it together - took only one day! All came together in one day: the IDEA, the money, the machines, the methodology, and the people. I really had nothing to do with it except ride round with a lady in a Jaguar and go from step to step as the Holy Spirit directed. Tens of thousands of Jews, if not more, around the world (many in Israel), have been reached for Messiah.
One Jewish businessman from Tiberius, Israel, flew all the way to California to meet me. I had an unlisted phone number; I don't know how he found my number. He told me, I will pay anything to meet you. I met him and spent two hours in the Tanach (the Hebrew Old Testament). The Ruach ha Chodesh (the Holy Spirit) opened his spiritual eyes; the man prayed and asked Yeshua ha Meshiach (Jesus the Christ) to come into his life and be his Messiah. I then took him to the airline counter where he immediately booked a flight back to Israel.
ASK GOD FOR WISDOM AND MOVE EXPEDITIOUSLY!
If Christopher Columbus had looked at the horizon from the ocean shore and listened to many others he would never have sailed to the New World 600 years ago.
What is YOUR horizon?
What is that stirring in your heart God has been activating? What is that IDEA the Lord has given you that you feel is humanly impossible?
ASK GOD FOR WISDOM! DIE TO REASONING AND GOD WILL BRING RESURRECTION LIFE: CREATIVITY IN THE SPIRIT.
One time God told me to go to a large metropolitan area and preach in the open air from about 10 PM until midnight. As I was preaching, I thought, “There’s nobody here to even hear me. Why did God send me here?” However, I kept preaching in faith.
A little while later a young man told me that across the street from where I was preaching the military would house young men waiting to go to the military the next day. They would place them there for one more day of medical checks before being shipped off to basic training. I returned to that area again - and sure enough - several stories up there were young men listening out the windows on their way to the Army the next day.
About six months later I was invited to a party in Hollywood. I thought, “I can go witness for my Lord.” There were so many people at that home that it was literally hard to move or walk around. I found myself standing opposite to a young man with red hair. He asked me what I did and I told him I was a minister.
He told me that he was the son of a Southern Baptist pastor, but that he, himself, had never received Christ. He then told me something very interesting. He said that one night he was in the hotel across the street from where God had sent me to preach in the late night. He said that at night, while listening to the preaching, he wrestled with Satan for hours until he finally got on his knees and gave his life to Jesus Christ. He was saved and eternally thankful for the preaching that came to him in the nighttime.
I DIED to my reasoning and God brought forth resurrection life!
Do what the Holy Spirit tells you. You may have a sense of the limits of your abilities but remember, “With man it is impossible, but with God ALL things are possible.”
