The Gift of Christ
by Chip Brogden
I am afraid that we do not truly appreciate the fact that God has never given us things, but has summed up everything into Christ, having poured Himself into His Son.

Having the Son, possessing the Son, being one with the Son, we have and possess everything God is. It never has been a question of seeking ten, one hundred, or one thousand different things from God. If we do not know from our experience, we should at least know from the Scriptures, that Christ is the Gift of God. Then our experience will come into line with God’s Thought. 

If you are used to seeking spiritual “things” (love, joy, peace, anointing, power, blessing, etc.) then this message is particularly for you, but we all stand to benefit from being reminded constantly that Christ is God’s One Gift.

THE WRATH TO COME
LISTEN NOW
Don't want to listen? Read the transcript...
Hello Elaine,

As we draw near to the second coming of Christ there is a prophetic urgency that brings both the same promise and the same meaning that John the Baptist did when he says that the axe is laid to the root of the tree. He is coming to thoroughly purge His threshing floor. He’s going to separate wheat from chaff. 

Also, in Malachi it talks about how, “He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them as gold and silver are refined.” He’s going to separate the dross from the pure. Separate sheep from goats, foolish from wise.

Well, it happened once; and I believe it’s going to happen again, and it is happening, as God raises up the same spirit and power of Elijah here in these last days: to warn God’s people to come out of her so that they don’t suffer the same judgment.

My Mother and My Brothers
by Chip Brogden
The question that Jesus asked bears repeating today: Who is my brother? Who is my sister? Who is my mother? 

Certainly not everyone who says, “Lord! Lord!” will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. In similar manner, not everyone who says, “Brother! Brother!” is really a brother. 

Yet learning how to be a good brother or a good sister is the first thing Jesus wants to teach us. When we are born into this Family that is all we are – a brother or a sister. Every apostolic, prophetic, evangelistic, pastoral, or teaching ministry must have, as its foundation, the spiritual depth and maturity of knowing how to “just” be a brother or sister. We skip this necessary preparation at our own peril, and the Family of God suffers as a result...

Hello Elaine,

When you look to the Word of God – not to a man, not to a movement, but to the Word of God – you actually see that the condition of the church in the last days has already been prophesied. We know exactly what to expect. We know exactly what to look for.
Not only has it been prophesied, but we actually have a spiritual parallel in the nation of Israel. We’ve been talking about John the Baptist, and how he prepared a place for the Lord in the wilderness, outside the camp. 
The whole story of John the Baptist reveals not only the spiritual importance, but also the prophetic significance, of the wilderness experience; and it teaches lessons you and I need to know as we also endeavor to follow Jesus outside the camp.

Put Ye On the Lord Jesus
by Chip Brogden
What is the Christian Life? It is leaving our ground altogether and coming onto the ground of Christ. It is deeper than a changed life – it is an exchanged life.

​​​​​​​Over time we can accomplish a change, but we can do nothing to exchange our life for His Life. This, from start to finish, is God’s work, and it is a work of grace. What, after all, is Righteousness? What is true Holiness? Christ is not righteous because He does righteous things; He does righteous things because He is Righteousness. Christ is not holy because He does holy things; He does holy things because He is Holiness. His “doing” flows out of His “being” – and OUR “doing” flows out of His “being” as well...

Hello Elaine,

THERE IS A PRICE TO BE PAID FOR REVELATION.

John the Baptist had a profound revelation of Christ, and with that revelation came the realization that the religious system of Judaism could not be reformed or revived, but would have to be repudiated.

Have you reached the same conclusion about Churchianity, or are you still playing tiddlywinks?

Trust in My Life
by Chip Brogden
Trying to imitate Christ is the path of frustration and despair. Let me say undeniably that you will never meet a Man like Jesus. Try for a million years and you can never duplicate His personality!

Your best attempt to “be more like Jesus” is as feeble as trying to grow a plant out of a concrete rock. Only a proud, ignorant person thinks they can even come close to being like Jesus.

No, the answer is, “It is no longer I that liveth, but Christ that liveth in me, and the life that I live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God.” I live, yet not I but Christ. It is not Jesus reproduced in me, it is Jesus instead of me. It is not my life, my work, my effort at holiness. It is Christ my Wisdom, Righteousness, Sanctification, and Redemption.

As I learn to trust His Life for the small things, I am finding the larger things to be less large...

Hello Elaine,

During the "four hundred silent years" before Jesus, in the absence of spiritual leadership and in the absence of a prophetic voice to keep them faithful to God's purpose, the Jews created a religious system so dead that they did not even recognize the Messiah when He arrived. Christians have spent five times as long to build their own religious system; in the process we have become just as blind to Jesus as the Jews were.

The Kingdom, The Power
and The Glory
by Chip Brogden
This three-fold benediction concludes what is commonly referred to as the Lord’s Prayer. It is a fitting conclusion to what we call the Prayer of the Kingdom, or the Prayer of the Overcomer.

This confession is the summation of all that precedes it, the end result of what we are asking: “FOR…” Why do we bless the Name of the Father? Why do we pray for the Will and the Kingdom to be accomplished? Why do we pray for daily bread and forgiveness of sins? Why do we pray to be kept from evil? “FOR…” We ask for all these things BECAUSE the Kingdom is Yours, the Power is Yours, and the Glory is Yours. All the others are requests, but these three are declarations. “Thine IS the Kingdom… Thine IS the Power… Thine IS the Glory.” That is the conclusion that we come to, and it is the reason that we pray in this way.

The Testimony of Jesus is committed to the Church, and the matter of His Kingdom, His Power, and His Glory is an intrinsic part of that Testimony. The Testimony answers to everything which man or the devil may challenge us with. So let us look at each one respectively...

NO FELLOWSHIP?
​​​​​​​Here's 7 Ways to Deal With It

Hello Elaine,

Can we trust God to bring the right people into our life?

Hopefully we will learn sooner, rather than later, than whenever we go out and try to “make something happen” we tend to make a mess of things. Our hunger and thirst for fellowship opens us up to the possibility of entering into relationships with people who will do us more harm than good.

Lonely people are easy prey for wolves in sheep’s clothing.

If we look to the Lord to meet all our needs – including our need for social interaction and fellowship – then He will certainly bring the right people into our life, at the right time, and for the right reason.

Resurrected With Christ
by Chip Brogden
Scripture bears witness to a most amazing spiritual truth: that disciples of Jesus are the crucified, dead, buried, resurrected, ascended, and seated Branches of a crucified, dead, buried, resurrected, ascended, and seated Vine.

How is this possible? Trace it as far back as you can, beginning with where you are “now.”
You are seated together with Christ because you ascended together with Christ.

You ascended together with Christ because you were resurrected and made alive together with Christ.

You were resurrected and made alive together with Christ because you were buried together with Christ.

You were buried together with Christ because you died together with Christ.

You died together with Christ because you were crucified together with Christ.
I'm not making these statements up - they are all recorded in Scripture! Without a doubt, these are some of the greatest, most mysterious truths in the universe!

Simple Gatherings
LISTEN NOW
Hello Elaine,

Jesus said that He is in the midst of two or three who are gathered in His Name. For all the talk about “gathering together” it really isn’t that difficult, if you just eliminate from your mind the old institutional obsession with large numbers.

Jesus is not so interested in numbers. He is very non-specific – He says, two or three. Could be as little as two. Could be as many as three. Just two or three. Very small. Very insignificant in terms of what we have come to expect a “gathering” is supposed to look like. Jesus says He is in the midst of as few as two or three who are gathered together in His Name.

I just think that is very liberating. Very freeing, that we do not have to gather dozens or hundreds or thousands of people together and put them in a box. You can call the box a church or a house church or a group or a conference or a meeting or a gathering, but whatever you call it, that “box” often gets in the way of the simplicity of Christ...

OUTSIDE THE CAMP
NEW EPISODE:
Forsaking the Assembly, Part 2
LISTEN NOW

Hello Elaine,

We’re looking more closely at Hebrews 10:25, to answer the question: If you stop going to church, have you really forsaken the assembling of yourselves together?

Well, we began to answer that last week, and when we left off, we had turned from Hebrews 10:25 and gone over to I Corinthians 11:17, where it says, “Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that you come together not for the better, but for the worse.” And I think the describes most of the meetings and services and gatherings taking place today – they come together not for the better, but for the worse. Perhaps because they have already lost the simplicity of Christ, and they have turned the Christian life into a series of religious meetings and services – and I don’t just mean Organized Religion, I mean house churches and home groups as well, because they can be just as religious and dead as the denominational systems they claim to have come out of.

But what made their gathering together so much for the worse that Paul said I can’t even praise you for gathering together? What were they doing wrong?

Hating for Jesus
by Chip Brogden
From our earliest days as young Christians our special emphasis is on love. We are taught to love God with all our heart, love our neighbor, and love our enemy.

We feel convicted if we do not love someone the way we think we should, and we ask God to give us a love for that brother or sister. How wonderful when the Lord responds to our prayer and we are able to love one another with a holy love.

Yet there is another aspect of love that is often overlooked, and that is hatred. This is a holy hatred. It goes right along with holy love. Yet we do not hear a lot about this holy hatred. We are not talking about the kind of hate that causes people to fight and kill one another. We hear the word “hate” and we think of gossip, slander, strife, murder, war, “hate crimes” against individuals and groups, jihads and crusades. There is nothing holy about that, that is sin. But what we have in mind here is a holy hatred that is the result of a holy love.

I would like to suggest that the reason we are not familiar with holy hatred, the good hatred, is because our love is not strong enough. A strong love produces a strong hatred; a holy love produces a holy hatred. For example, in Psalm 119, David rejoices in the truth of the Law of the Lord. Because he has learned to love the truth, he has also learned to hate every false way. You cannot love the truth and love error at the same time. But the more you love the truth, the more you will hate the false. Do you see this? That is one example of holy hatred.

Forsaking the Assembly, Part 1
LISTEN NOW

Hello Elaine,

Now if you’ve heard this once in church then you’ve heard it a thousand times. So I don’t wonder why I get this objection every week, when people hear me talking about God calling people to come out of church. What? How can that be? And they hit the panic button, just like they’ve been programmed, and they’ll write and say, “Yeah, but what about Hebrews 10:25?” And they’ll even quote it for me as if I’ve never even read it before! As if I didn’t even know that was in the Bible, right? As if they expect me to say, “Wow! I never saw that before! Well, that changes everything!” Ha!

The truth is, I know all about Hebrews 10:25, and I’ve taught from that passage many times over the years, from the perspective of the pastor trying to scare his members into coming to church, as well as from the perspective of someone following Jesus outside the camp with no church agenda, a little more wisdom, and a lot more maturity, so I can rightly divide the Word of God and not let my “yeah, but” get in the way of what the Holy Spirit wants to say.

What does Hebrews 10:25 mean, in context? Well, as I say, that question has been asked and answered so many times, so let’s dig into it by listening in on one of those teachings where we get into Scripture and talk about it. Have you forsaken the assembling of yourselves together when you stop going to church? Let’s see what the Word of God has to say….

Remember Your First Love
LISTEN NOW

Hello Elaine,

We’ve turned the simplicity of Christ into the complexity of religion – where to meet, when to meet, how to meet, who to meet with. It’s just one long series of meetings, meetings, and more meetings. And everyone has an opinion on how to “do it.” You know what? None of it matters, it’s just the same old religious junk that keeps popping up. Even the people who write books about how Christians should meet, if you actually go to their meetings, you just find the same old religious garbage. It’s really ironic. Sad.

Christians have forsaken the simplicity of a Christ-centered faith and have replaced it with a church-centered faith that feeds a religious addiction, and the primary symptom of that religious addiction is what I call Chronic Meetingitus. They don’t know how to function unless they have some group to be a part of, something to attend. And that’s not even the worse part. This religious addiction is highly contagious, and people affected with Chronic Meetingitus tend to think people who don’t attend the meetings can’t really be Christians. What a crazy, mixed-up, topsy-turvy world we live in!

Religion is an addiction and church is a drug. Church is a drug. However you define “church,” however you do church, if church is the focus of your faith then your faith is focused on the wrong thing.

How do we get over this religious addiction? How can we be cured from Chronic Meetingitus?

Pauline Expressions of "En Christo"
by Chip Brogden
Why do scholars find the essential foundation and pillar of Pauline thought, and the vocabulary he consistently uses to communicate that thesis, so difficult to understand?

NOTE: I wrote and submitted the following as a formal paper to a secular university for a course titled, “Religious Thought of Paul.” Although it is intended for an academic audience, ordinary readers may find it useful for three reasons.

First, it makes a Scriptural case for the Christ-centeredness of Paul’s spirituality as something unique and impossible to fully comprehend by way of traditional theological inquiry.

Second, it describes in great detail the three main applications of Paul’s use of the phrase “in Christ,” which provides some very practical spiritual lessons for all of us.

Third, it offers a scholarly argument for Paul’s use of the word “all” (Greek: pas) to really mean “all” in the context of God’s Purpose in Christ, and not (as many suggest) to mean something less than all, each and every.

Interested? Pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee (or tea) and...

The Secret of Spiritual Power
by Chip Brogden
The way of the world says that in order to be stronger, we must build ourselves up and seek strength and dominance over others.

Christians everywhere are keenly interested in how to be increased, how to be stronger, how to take authority, how to rise up, how to get more. They look for methods, formulas, and techniques for becoming bigger and better.

The results have been disappointing. Many mistakes have been made and many people have been hurt and disillusioned.

The Lord has a different approach for us to take...

Was Jesus Really a Rabbi?
by Chip Brogden
I have generally assumed that Jesus was a Jewish rabbi. After all, He was born in Israel, He was Jewish, and people called Him, “Rabbi.” But that would make Him a professionally trained religious leader. Was He?

Bible teachers generally assume that when the Jewish leaders saw how brilliant the boy Jesus was, they immediately took steps to get Him enrolled in one of their schools to be formally trained as a rabbi. This accounts for why Jesus is not seen or heard from during his formative years.

At the completion of His training He emerges and begins His ministry as a full-fledged rabbi – one of the best, most brilliant, and most controversial rabbis of them all.

Sounds nice.

Is that really what happened?

I don’t think so.

Let’s not assume, but let’s look into the Scriptures and see what was really going on...

OUTSIDE THE CAMP WITH CHIP BROGDEN
Hey Elaine,

Exciting news...

Next week I'm launching a podcast specifically to support those who are learning to follow Jesus "outside the camp" (Heb. 13:13) - in the wilderness, apart from Organized Religion.

I'm doing this because I want to help more people discover the freedom and joy of a Christ-centered faith that is based on RELATIONSHIP, not religion!

Specifically, I want to reach a younger generation of people who are seeking the truth about Jesus and have been hurt, burned-out, and disillusioned with things said and done "in the name of Jesus" that have nothing to do with Jesus.

This is NOT about church-bashing or trying to persuade people to stop going to church if that's where they think they need to be. Plenty of people (including me) have spoken out "against" something but not enough are speaking "for" something.

This is about supporting, encouraging, helping, healing and teaching those who have already stopped going to church, or have never gone. That includes a lot of people who love God so much they can't stand church, as well as a lot of people who are lost, stumbling around, and looking for Jesus in all the wrong places.

We have to do what Organized Religion has failed to do, and we have to reach them "where they are, as they are" by bringing Christ to them - so we can then bring them to Christ!

Why am I telling you this? Because I need your help.

Next week we're going to launch several episodes at once (20-25 minutes each) before going to a regular weekly schedule.

I need you to subscribe, rate and review the new show on iTunes when it comes out.

If you don't know how to do that... just share it on social media and tell your friends and neighbors about it. The idea is to get as many people listening as possible so we can spread the Word and create a lot of momentum.

You'll also be able to listen to and download each episode from the website if you don't have iTunes.

This is where the Harvest is... people are not breaking down the doors of churches, they are online, searching for truth. If WE are not there to fill that space and point them to Jesus, someone else will fill that space and point them somewhere else.

So watch for another email from me next Tuesday letting you know the show is live.

Thanks!

I am your brother,

Chip Brogden

P.S. We cannot do it alone. Thank you so much for your support of Christ-centered teaching!

A Kingdom Manifesto
by Chip Brogden
The Scriptures clearly teach that the saints will rule and reign with Christ, yet nowhere in the Bible do we find instructions on how to rule the nations or how to conquer the world.

We find out instead how a disciple is to rule his own heart and conquer his own natural instinct by denying Self and taking up the Cross daily to follow Him. Only then will it be possible to sit with Christ in His throne and rule the nations (cf. Revelation 3:21).

Although it will cover the earth, this Kingdom does not begin with global domination. It begins inwardly, invisibly, and secretly within the hearts and minds of individual disciples. Jesus will not move at once to seize the world. Instead, He will train men and women to function is His Kingdom as kings and priests. He is involving them in the process, preparing them, taking them out of the world one by one, and transforming them into His likeness over the process of time.

Where does it all begin? It begins with the heart-attitude of a king-in-training, the mindset of an apprenticed disciple. It is a training program designed to produce a different sort of king and priest, quite a contrast to the “kings of this world”, and like all Kingdom conundrums, it reveals how differently Heaven operates from Earth.

Let us look at each characteristic individually and then ask: how far along are we in our Kingdom training?

Hey Elaine,

I wonder how many of God’s children are bound by a wrong view of God?

I wonder how many are putting others into bondage with their own warped view of God?

Either living in fear and guilt that they don’t measure up, or assuming they do and no one else does?

These were some of the questions I started asking a few months ago as I began a series of teachings on the subject.

I wanted to let you know those audio teachings are now part of our MP3 Catalog.

Click below if you are interested in learning more:

WHAT IS GOD LIKE?

Of course, this may challenge your current perceptions about God - which could be a good thing.

I want to know Him AS HE IS.

How about you?

Thank you for supporting Christ-centered teaching

P.S. Religion messes everything up. All the more reason to press into God, search the Word, get on our face, and see Him as He really is.

God's Entire Plan: in 5 Simple Verses
by Chip Brogden
These five verses condense some very big ideas and spiritual truths into a very compact but all-encompassing Gift of Truth – a priceless treasure for us to unwrap, explore, and value more than all the wealth in the world.

Do you remember when you first received the Lord Jesus? How excited you were, and how great God seemed to be? It is only later, after we have begun to digest the doctrines and traditions of religion, that we tend to lose sight of the greatness of God and the preeminence of Christ. Man is exalted, and Christ is limited, through these religious traditions. But if we put those teachings aside, and simply focus on what God’s Word says, we find nothing to diminish our joy at the riches of His grace revealed in its pages.
