He Chose You
"You did not choose Me, but I chose you."
John 15:16
It is not so much our seeking the Truth as the Truth drawing us to Himself. That drawing us to Himself is interpreted by our soul as spiritual hunger. Without this we cannot come to Truth.

Christ has come to seek and to save the Lost. He tells His disciples that they have not chosen Him, but He has chosen them. The ones who seek Him discover that they are sought out by Him. The paradox of the situation is that the Lord will only reveal Himself to those who seek Him, but when they begin to seek Him, He searches for them in order to make Himself known.

My Way, God's Way
"Not My will, but Yours, be done."
LUKE 22:42
What does it cost to become a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ? What does one have to give up? There is truly only one thing that must be given up. It is not, and it never has been, a question of giving up friends, family, material possessions, fame and fortune. You can give up all those things, just like the first disciples of the Lord, and still run away and deny Him.

Forget the outward things and go right to the heart of the matter. Only one thing is necessary, and if we give up this one thing we are qualified to be disciples of the Lord. What is the one thing? All we have to give up is OUR WAY.

There are two ways, one which seems right, and one which IS right. One is my way, the other is His way.

Defeating Darkness
"This is your hour, and the power of darkness."
LUKE 22:53
Despised and rejected of men, betrayed by Judas, forsaken by the disciples, condemned by the Jews and crucified by the Romans. You say what has happened to you is unfair? The crucifixion of Jesus was the most unfair event in human history. He allowed them "their hour." Go ahead and take the greatest concentration of evil you can find, bring the full force of death and hell and satan against the Lord Jesus, let evil do all it can do. What is the end result? He is raised up triumphant over it all.

Jesus did not avoid death. Sometimes death is unavoidable. Sometimes darkness is unavoidable. Sometimes evil appears to have the advantage. But in death, in darkness, in the worst evil, Life and Light come forth and God is glorified. If not here where we can see it, then in the End, when all things are revealed, when He makes all things new and wipes away every tear from every eye.

Kingdom Mysteries
"To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is given in parables."
LUKE 8:10
The parables are not quaint little stories; they are prophetic declarations of spiritual truth, and they give us invaluable insight into this Irresistible Kingdom.

Concealing the truth within the context of a parable was necessary, Jesus said, because "To you [the disciples] it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to the rest it is given in parables."

Those who want to understand the mysteries of the Kingdom have to have a relationship with the King. The mysteries of the Kingdom are reserved, not for passive listeners, but for true followers: so "when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:34).

Vision of Victory
"Take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."
EPHESIANS 6:13
If we see the devil as defeated then we will not fight, we will stand. If we see ourselves as earthly then we will behave in an earthly manner: our words, our thoughts, our prayers, our deeds, our warfare will be carried out in an earthly manner. If we see ourselves seated with Christ in the heavenlies then we will behave in a heavenly manner, as a heavenly people, bringing the Mind and Will and Kingdom of God to bear upon that which is contrary to Christ on the earth.

How do we obtain heavenly vision? We must ask to see as He sees. We must pray that God will illuminate our heart. Our vision affects our actions.

The Purpose of Suffering
"I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear,
but now my eye sees You."
JOB 42:5
The testing of Job was a valid test, a crucial one, and a crucible through which each Christian will be purged, sifted, and tried. To what end? It is summed up in the words of Job himself as he neared the end of his ordeal: “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear: but now my eye sees You.” BUT NOW! BUT NOW! BUT NOW! Before he heard about Him, but now he sees Him, and falls to the ground. Before he worshipped Him having heard, now he worships having seen, and known.

I believe that God set him up for such experiential knowledge by allowing him to be subjected to the assaults of the devil, the harshness of his environment, the misunderstanding of his friends, the loss of his family and material possessions, and his physical infirmity. I submit that if anyone desires to take up the Cross and follow Christ, such testing is the only realistic expectation His disciple can entertain.

Take Up the Cross
"Come, take up the cross, and follow Me."
Mark 10;21
What does it really mean to be crucified with Christ? Thankfully, God does not ask us to submit to physical crucifixion in order to prove that we are disciples of Jesus. When Jesus tells us to take up our Cross and follow Him, He is not telling us that we must pay the penalty for our sins. Thank God that Jesus has paid the penalty for us! Taking up the Cross, for us, is adopting a spiritual attitude of self-denial, of surrender, and of yielding all that we have and all that we are to God.

Although that aspect of the Cross occurs in us day by day and moment by moment, what Christ accomplished through His death on the Cross is finished, complete, and settled once and for all. This finished work of the Cross is the basis upon which we can take up the Cross daily and follow after Him.

An Irresistible Purpose
“According to the eternal purpose
which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
EPHESIANS 3:11
When we really look at what the Bible says and grasp the implications of the Gospel according to Jesus then we soon discover that this Good News is better than we could have ever dared to hope. It is a story of recovering something that was once thought to be totally lost, redeeming something that was once thought to be absolutely hopeless. It is a story of God bringing something wonderfully good out of something terribly evil. It is a story of God bringing Life and Light out of so much death and darkness. It is a story of love, and the incredible lengths to which that Love will go to secure the object of its affection.

The Gospel is more, so much more, than how to avoid hell and go to heaven; it is the story of an Idea, a Purpose, an Intention, a Plan, which is working itself out in this universe even as you sit here reading these words.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things, to Whom
be glory forever. Amen." -ROMANS 11:36

In Romans 11:36 Paul sums up the preeminence of Christ into three
expressions: "Of Him... through Him... to Him... are all things."

"Of Him" says that everything which exists - things in heaven,
things in earth, everything that was created, everything that has
come into being, everything that will come into being - is created
by, and because of, Christ. "Through Him" says that everything
which lives, moves, breathes, operates, exists, or functions in
this universe, whether animate or inanimate, whether biological,
chemical, spiritual, natural, or cosmotological - does so through
Christ, Who sovereignly upholds all these things, determines their
place, and keeps them in order. "To Him" says that everything, no
matter how far from God's Thought it may be, no matter how chaotic
things may appear, is being directed, summed up, and gathered
together into Christ. As the Alpha, all things flow from Him; as
the Omega, all things flow to Him.

That is quite a paragraph. A paragraph like that cannot be grasped
in one reading. But that paragraph is, in essence, what Paul means,
and what we mean, by Christ having the preeminence in all things.
We are talking about Jesus as Lord over us individually, over the
Ekklesia corporately, and over all creation collectively. We are
talking about a preeminent Christ Who is exalted above every
principality and power, rule and dominion; things visible, things
invisible; things past, things present, things future; things in
heaven, things in earth, things under the earth: all things are of
Him, all things are through Him, and all things are to Him. That is
preeminence.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"As we have many members in one body, but all the members do not
have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ."
ROMANS 12:4,5

There is tremendous authority in the Ekklesia, but it bears
repeating: the greater the authority, the greater the
responsibility. There is no such thing as authority in the Kingdom
of God without responsibility. If God gives you authority to
represent Him, there is a reason. Authority is not given to us so
we can order people around and make them serve us. Authority is
given so we may carry out our own responsibility. There is a task,
a function, a mission, an assignment, given to every member of the
Ekklesia. Since all the members share in the same authority, all
the members share in the same responsibility - though not all share
in the same function.

Just as different parts of the body have an equal responsibility to
perform their specific function, so the many members of the Body of
Christ have equal responsibility to function in the time, place,
and manner which is given to them by the authority of the Head.

"Of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace." -JOHN
1:16

Just how full is "full"? How many people does "all" include? We
have to believe that full means complete, and all includes each one
of us. "Of His fullness we have all received." No one, no matter
how "anointed" they may appear, has more fullness than anyone else.
And if we have received it already then there is nothing for us to
do to get it.

If I have already entered into a room and sat down in a chair then
there is no need for me to try to get into the room anymore. I am
there already. We entered into Christ when He entered into us: we
do not have to enter into Him over and over again, we are merely
abiding in Him.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"The ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me."
-JOHN 14:30

The temptations of Christ were not random attempts to trick Him
into making a mistake, but were part of a calculated effort to
destroy or disqualify Him by any means necessary. From that time on
the adversary determined that a direct assault against the Lord
Jesus was a pointless waste of time. Why? Because He was so
selfless!

You cannot tempt a man who seeks nothing for himself. He wanted
nothing and desired nothing but what was given to Him from Above.
With Jesus the only option was to destroy Him through the evil
intentions of other people. Even in this the Lord Jesus merely
passed through crowds who sought to stone Him. He was untouchable
and unkillable. Eventually He submitted Himself to betrayal and
crucifixion; but even in this He overcame death and rose up in
victory. Never before or since has any man so thoroughly routed his
enemy. The devil had finally met his match.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the
ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed
should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. For the earth
yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that
the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately
he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come." -MARK 4:26-29

Once the seed is in the ground it just naturally comes forth the
way God intended - but not immediately. First the blade, then the
head, then the full grain in the head. Like everything else in
God's creation, it is progressive.

Likewise, we "do not know how" this Irresistible Kingdom continues
to grow and develop, yet it persists in doing so. It really is
irresistible. Eventually the harvest will come and we will see the
end result. Only then will the magnitude of God's infinite wisdom
and the greatness of His Purpose be revealed in all its fullness.

"I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want,
but I do the very thing I hate." -ROMANS 7:15 ESV

We eventually discover, like Paul, that the real problem is not
what we DO, but what we ARE. We can confess the same sins over and
over again, or we can take up the Cross and die to them all. The
first approach deals with sins committed, while the second approach
deals with the sinner.

Which do you think is more effective? Well, if the one who sins is
dead then the issue of continued sinning becomes irrelevant. Hating
sin is good; hating Self is better, and far more effective. For the
strength of Sin is Self. If you take the ax to the root of a bad
tree, then it will stop producing bad fruit, and the issue is
settled once and for all. If Self is denied then Sin becomes
superfluous, and the problem of Evil is solved.

"He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all,
how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?" -ROMANS
8:32

When God wished to test Abraham, He did not ask him to sacrifice a
sheep, a ram, or a cow. He did not ask for Abraham's gold or silver
or tents or possessions. He went right to the heart of the matter
and asked for Isaac, the son of promise. How gladly Abraham would
have given anything and everything but his own beloved son. But in
the willingness to give up his son, he was, in essence, laying
everything down on the altar. When God owns what the man loves
most, He owns everything the man has.

In the same way, the Father, wishing to demonstrate His great love
for us, has not given us parts and pieces of things, but has
sacrificed His only Son. By giving us His Son, He has, in essence
and in fact, freely given us everything. When man possesses what
God loves most, he owns everything God has.

"You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for
You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were
created." -REVELATION 4:11

All things were created by Him, and everything was created for Him.
For Him! Why this earth, the moon, the stars, the galaxies? Why the
animals, the birds, the fish, the insects? Why men and women,
angels, cherubim, and seraphim? For Him! All for Him!

God's original thought is for Christ to fill every created thing
with His Life, Love, and Glory. A design implies a Designer, a plan
implies a Planner, and a creation implies a Creator. We are not
drifting along aimlessly, and we did not come into being by
accident. We were created by Him, and we were created for Him. We
were created to love Him, and to be loved by Him.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"We are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in
Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh." -PHILIPPIANS 3:3

We too quickly put our confidence in flesh and blood. It is easier
and speedier to have someone tell us, "Yes, you should do this" or
"No, you should not do that." The question is not should or should
not; the question is, how is the Life instructing you? If we do not
know what the Life is telling us, then we should be still and be
quiet until we DO know.

But all too often we know well enough what we are to do, and we are
looking for a way out of it; or we are trying to get confirmation
from this thing or that thing before we will obey. This is why we
have a hard time hearing to begin with. How many times does God
have to repeat Himself? How many times does He have to confirm
something before we will obey? It sounds spiritual and humble to
question and wait, but if the Life has already instructed us then
any delay on our part is really disobedience.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot
see the kingdom of God... unless one is born of water and the Spirit,
he cannot enter the kingdom of God." -JOHN 3:3,5

All of us are familiar with these verses, but we are not so
familiar with what they actually mean. To state it simply, being
born-again is not the goal, but the first step towards the goal:
the goal is the Kingdom of God. We could state it like this: the
narrow gate is not the goal, but it is the first thing we must pass
through in order to enter the narrow path.

Our goal, and God's goal, is not the gate, or we would not need a
path. Though we begin our journey by entering the gate, the goal is
at the end of the path, not at the beginning of the path.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"[Elisha] said, 'Go, borrow... empty vessels... then pour [oil] into
all those vessels.'" -2 KINGS 4:3,4

There is no lack of supply with the Lord. There is only a lack of
willing vessels. The oil kept flowing until there were no more
vessels to fill. A willing vessel is both yielded and empty. A
vessel which is unwilling to be used cannot receive of the Infinite
Supply. And a vessel which is already full cannot receive. The Life
of the Lord is always looking for expression through a willing
vessel that is both yielded and empty.

"The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His
servants." -REVELATION 1:1

May God give us the revelation of Christ! Oh God, give us that
vision of Him! If we are illuminated to see Him then we cannot
remain small any longer. He is God's Answer for smallness.

This Testimony is a boundary-breaking thing, an overshadowing
thing, an expansive and increasing thing: "Of the increase of His
Government and peace THERE SHALL BE NO END" (Isaiah 9:7). Not only
will there be no end of His Kingdom, but there will be no end of
HIS INCREASING! Oh God, we cannot fathom that! We cannot comprehend
that! It cannot be contained. We cannot take it and fit it into our
program. We have to find a way to fit into IT, and not the other
way around.

"Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit,
according to the tradition of men, according to the basic
principles of the world, and not according to Christ." -COLOSSIANS
2:8

If by the end of today there is less of me and more of Jesus then I
am growing. Otherwise I am not. Jesus must become greater and
greater in my life, and I must become lesser and lesser. This is
the Path. Along this Path towards apprehending Christ as All in
all, there are many pitfalls, snares, hindrances, and detours.

Thus, Paul says we are to be on our guard and let no man cheat us.
In this context, the word "cheat" means, "to destroy and strip of
one's possessions; to deprive of something valuable by force." Each
believer has an incredible fullness and completeness in the Person
of Jesus Christ. Christ is THE Gift of God, the ultimate Gift, and
this Gift is precious, valuable, and of great worth.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden
"The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it,
for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light."
-REVELATION 21:21

The spiritual governs the natural, while the natural helps us to
interpret the spiritual. When God said, "Let there be light" He
established the foundation of the spiritual and the natural world.
In the natural world, according to what we can observe, light is
increasing the size of our universe infinitely in every direction.
But in the spiritual world, the True Light, Jesus Christ, is
shining into spiritual darkness with an irresistible, unstoppable
brightness.

When God said, "Let there be Light," He was saying, "Let Christ be
infinitely increased in all directions at once!" And it was so. He
must increase, therefore He will increase, and He is increasing.

"Being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as He sat at the
table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly oil of
spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on His head."
-MARK 14:3

Perhaps you are in a lonely place because the Lord desires to use
you to establish a place in the wilderness for Him. If the Lord has
impressed His Need for such a place on your heart, then declare
your heart a "Bethany" place and take this up between yourself and
the Lord. Give the Lord some ground to build upon. Give Him His
place. Do not look for multitudes of people. It is better to have
one, two, or three gathered together as the Lord's Bethany than to
have hundreds or thousands of people gathered together as something
other than Bethany.

Is there anyone in all the world who can truly meet for the purpose
of ministering to the Lord and "waste" themselves in worship,
giving no thought to their own need, but laying down their lives
wholly for the Lord's satisfaction?

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"You meant evil against me; but God meant it for good." -GENESIS
50:20

And that is the work of the Cross: to be able to see that God is
working all things together for good. Even the things that we would
not choose! Even the things that we do not like to go through! Even
the things that we do not want to experience! Even the evil things
that other people do to us! All of these things God can use for our
good if we will embrace them and accept them and understand the
reason why God permits them to come to us.

Everything we experience: whether it is evil or whether it is good;
whether it is something we have not chosen or something that we
have chosen; whether it is something we like or something we do not
like; all things are working together to increase Christ and
decrease us. That is the principle that we see in the life of
Joseph.

"[Jesus] said to them, 'When you pray, say: 'Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on
earth as it is in heaven." -LUKE 11:2

This is a revolutionary act. It is praying for the establishment of
a Kingdom and a Will in which Christ has the preeminence as All in
All. In this Kingdom there is no room for any earthly government,
ruler, or king. In this Will there is no room for any human agenda.
We know Jesus is Lord, yet we do not see all things submitted to
Him (Hebrews 2:8).

So what do we do in the meantime? Overcomers do not just passively
wait for Jesus to come back. They pray for His Kingdom to be
established and for His Will to be performed. In this way they
exercise power over the nations by preparing the way of the Lord.
So this prayer is destructive in a natural sense, but constructive
in a spiritual sense, for as the nations are decreased, Christ is
increased (John 3:30).

"[Jesus] went a little farther, and fell on the ground, and prayed...
'Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from
Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will." -MARK
14:35,36

True prayer affords us the greatest opportunity for self-denial.
When was the last time we offered up prayer, not for our agenda or
plan, but for God's Kingdom to come and for God's Will to be done?
When was the last time we came before the Lord, not to get our
needs met, but to meet His Need? When was the last time we
subjugated our own desires and wishes and gave ourselves wholly to
praying for God's Purpose to be accomplished? When was the last
time we separated ourselves from family, friends, and business and
sought the Lord; not to receive a blessing FROM Him, but to be a
blessing TO Him?

"He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for
My sake will find it." -MATTHEW 10:39

Each time you lose a part of your life, you will find Christ's Life
is right there to fill the void. Every single time. This is a
spiritual truth, and there are no exceptions to the rule. Think of
what it means. The more I give to Him, the more He gives to me. I
trade in my life in exchange for His Life.

Which would you rather have? Do you want your life, your failures,
your mistakes, your frustrations, your sins? Or would you rather
give that up in exchange for His Life? You can have either one you
want, but you cannot have both.

"Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for You are with me." -PSALM 23:4

God ordains that He will walk with us through death. He does not
take us around it, or over it, or under it. He does not send us to
walk it alone. But He walks with us through the valley of the
shadow of death.

This is more prophetic than you may realize, for this "valley of
the shadow of death" is a reference to the Cross. We fear no evil
because the One Who calls us to take up the Cross is right there
with us, comforting us with His rod and staff. This death will be
the end of something, but it will also be the beginning of
something - for death in the Irresistible Kingdom is never the end
of the story, it is only the beginning of a new chapter.

"That you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to
comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and
depth and height--to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge;
that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." -EPHESIANS
3:17-19

We ought to meditate on this daily and ask the Lord to open our
eyes to see the height, depth, width, length, and breadth of this
JESUS Whom we say we serve. May God deliver us from our own idea,
concept, perception, and illusion of a small Christ and give us
revelation into the preeminence of His Son.

When we see Christ as All in All then it will be impossible for us
to ever again be reduced to the small, the trivial, the petty
things which occupy us and waste so much of our time. Our only hope
is seeing a Christ that fills us, a Christ that is greater than us,
a Christ that is larger than we can fathom, an indescribable Christ
that overshadows, overwhelms, and consumes us through and through!

If you want to boast, take pride in the things that make you weak,
for when you are weak, you are strong - in Him. Be afraid of the
praise and acceptance of others, for they are the fertilizer for
the self-important and grandiose thoughts that are yours by nature
anyway, which spring up in the shallow ground of your carnal mind.
Carry about the Death of the Lord so you may have the Life of the

Count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that
the testing of your faith produces patience." -JAMES 1:2,3

The Lord does not test us with the intent of making us stumble.
That is the way the adversary works. No, the Lord indeed tests us
and proves us, but His Way is to strengthen us in the testing,
whereas the devil wants to weaken us in the testing. It has been
said that our circumstances will either leave us better or they
will leave us bitter. Ultimately, the decision is ours. We should
steadfastly resist the temptation of satan, but we should also
learn to distinguish between the assault of the enemy and the
proving of the Lord.

Jesus already knows what He is going to do. In His mind it is as
good as done. But He waits, and He proves us. Not because He does
not know us, but because we do not know ourselves.

"In the world you'll have trouble. But cheer up! I have overcome
the world." -JOHN 16:33

In the world we will experience temptations, testings, and trials.
We will experience persecution, tribulation, and afflictions of
soul and body. We will experience mistreatment and
misunderstanding. It is not a question of God allowing or not
allowing things to happen. It is part of living. Some things we do
to ourselves, other things we do to each other. Our Father knows
about every bird which falls to the ground, but He does not always
prevent it from falling.

What are we to learn from this? That our response to what happens
is more important than what happens. Here is a mystery: one man's
experience drives him to curse God, while another man's identical
experience drives him to bless God. Your response to what happens
is more important than what happens.
