Today's Message from Chip Brogden

He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him."
1 CORINTHIANS 6:17

To the Ephesians, Paul compares this spiritual union to the union
that exists between a man and a woman when they are married: "And
the two shall become one flesh. This is a great mystery, but I
speak concerning Christ and the [Ekklesia]" (Ephesians 5:31,32).
Certainly this is a great mystery.

How God is able to make us one spirit with Jesus is beyond human
knowledge. But this we know: however it is accomplished, it has its
beginning in the Cross. The Cross is the starting point of our
union with Christ. In the Cross, God sees us in the place of Christ
and sees Christ in the place of us. That is to say, in the Cross,
all our sinfulness is attributed to Christ, and all His
righteousness is attributed to us. How wonderful for us - but how
terrible for Him!

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born
of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You
must be born again.'" JOHN 3:6,7

Jesus said that to see His Kingdom "you must be born-again." To
enter His Kingdom, He requires us to "become as little children"
(Matthew 18:3).

That is another way of saying, "You have to start all over again.
You cannot make any progress with Me so long as you cling to the
old way of thinking, perceiving, understanding, and interacting. I
cannot pour new wine into old wineskins because it would ruin both.
You need a new wineskin - a new heart, a new mind, a new
understanding of things in order to receive what I wish to give
you."

"Yours is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever. Amen."
MATTHEW 6:13

What assurance are we given? It is this: that in spite of nation
rising up against nation, kingdom rising up against kingdom,
political tumults and global confusion, "YOURS IS THE KINGDOM" -
Your Throne is everlasting, Your Kingdom is established, and of the
increase of Your Government there shall be no end (Isaiah 9:6,7).

In other words, as Daniel would say, the Heavens DO rule, and it is
the Most High God Who governs the affairs of men. THAT is the heart
of the matter. THAT is what we are moving towards, from our
day-to-day affairs as followers of Jesus, to the course and
direction of this entire age.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Of His fullness we have all received."
JOHN 1:16

If there is a seeming difference in the "level" of anointing or
power or spirituality among believers it is definitely not because
some have more of the Lord than others. Let this be an
encouragement to you. Indeed, Christ is not divided, and of His
fullness we all share. We are all baptized into the same Spirit.

The difference is some saints are more broken than others. Some
have passed through many seasons of tearing down and building up,
while some after many years of experience are still resisting the
Lord and refusing to lay down their lives. Some have recognized
God's dealings and have submitted to them, while others have
misunderstood or been totally ignorant of God's dealings with them.

"Little children, keep yourselves from idols (false gods)-- [from
anything and everything that would occupy the place in your heart
due to God, from any sort of substitute for Him that would take
first place in your life]."
1 JOHN 5:21 AMP


That is the sort of radical, uncompromising attitude he says we
must exercise over our own hearts, for as the members go, so goes
the whole Body. Just look at the gravity of his words! "Keep
yourself from ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that would occupy the place
in your heart due to God, from ANY SORT of substitute for Him that
would take first place in your life." Fanatical, impossible
directions! Do you really mean to say that there can be NOTHING
that takes first place in my life but Christ? Is that what it comes
down to?

Absolutely, that is precisely what is at stake, and that is
precisely where the battle rages, and that is precisely why we are
being tempted on a daily basis. All we have to do to be defeated is
to put Him some place other than first. Either He is Lord OF all,
or He is not Lord AT all.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"He who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end,
to him I will give power over the nations--'He shall rule them with
a rod of iron; they shall be dashed to pieces like the potter's
vessels'-- as I also have received from My Father; and
I will give him the morning star."
REVELATION 2:26-28

Just as Jeremiah was set over nations and kingdoms, so we have
received this authority also. We do not serve in a governmental
capacity, but in a spiritual capacity, praying for the Kingdom and
Will of God to come forth. Such prayer is very weighty and
universal. It is beyond the earth, and so it moves the earth.

In addition to authority over the nations, we are given "the
morning star." Christ is the Morning Star, the Heavenly Man, Who is
higher than the nations and kingdoms of this world. The Morning
Star gives Overcomers the heavenly authority which is beyond the
influence of the earthly realm in which they must live.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

If you knew the gift of God, and who it is
who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him,
and He would have given you Living Water."
JOHN 4:10

We must know the Gift of God. The one who knows will not only be
satisfied, but will have an abundance of Life springing up from
within. If we are mainly interested in being filled for ourselves
then we will have little to offer anyone else. Yet when we know the
Gift of God the Life will overflow. "You anoint my head with oil;
my cup runs over" (Psalm 23:5).

Are you an overflowing Christian, with all of God you can hold, and
much left over? Sadly, this does not describe many of us. To drink
is a beginning, but God's goal is an overflow. How we need clear
revelation into the Son! How we need to see just how precious and
worthy He is!

"For I determined not to know anything
among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified."
1 CORINTHIANS 2:2


Religion seeks to reform a man; the Cross seeks to crucify him.
Religion may fail to bring about the desired result, but the Cross
never fails to achieve its end.

Mankind will pursue morality, virtue, spirituality, even perform
religious works and good deeds, in order to avoid death on a Cross.
But there are no wounds, no scars, no evidence of having ever died
and been made alive unto God. Either a man has never died, or he
has died and been raised again. You cannot fake a resurrection.

"And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you;
though the more abundantly I love you, the less I am loved."
2 CORINTHIANS 12:15

Paul gave us an example to follow. Don't just look at his calling
and his gifting and his revelation. Look at his heart of love. He
gave all - not just for the Lord, but for the Lord's people. And
they were a most carnal, unappreciative bunch of people. Even so,
the heart of a father is demonstrated. That is the reason he had
authority. I tell you his authority was not in his title, his
position, or his status as having taught the believers there. His
authority was not in his calling, gift, or revelation. His
authority was in the abundant love he showed.

Make no mistake: I am not there yet. I still struggle with how to
be a good brother, much less a spiritual father with abundant love
for everyone. I obviously have a long way to go, but now I see the
missing ingredient and I am following after Love. How about you?

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"God... Who desires all men
to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."
1 TIMOTHY 2:4

Here we see one will of God with two expressions - a gate and a
path. We enter the gate in a moment, but we walk the path over
time. We are saved in a moment, but we come to the full-knowledge
(epignosis) of Christ over time. So John 3:3 is not telling us
about our ending, but our beginning. Birth is the beginning of
Life, not the goal of Life. The goal in view here is not being
born-again, but entering the Kingdom.

Jesus does not just say, "You must be born again." If He did then
we might be correct in saying that is all there is to it. But Jesus
says, "Unless you are born again, you cannot see or enter into the
Kingdom of God." It is clear that the Kingdom is what we are trying
to gain entrance into, and while being born again is the gate, the
ultimate destination of the Kingdom of God is at the end of the
path.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually."
1 CORINTHIANS 12:27

There are different members in different places with different
purposes: each distinctive but each working together, united
beneath the same great Purpose and Intention of God, working under
the direction of the Head like a great spiritual symphony.

"God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He
pleased." (1 Corinthians 12:18). This results in a spiritual
oneness and unity (for better or worse) so that "if one member
suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is
honored, all the members rejoice with it" (1 Corinthians 12:26).
Everything you do (or do not do) as a member of the Body of Christ
affects all the other members. No one is an island. The Difficult
Path may be lonely at times, but we are never truly alone.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"As the body is one and has many members,
but all the members of that one body, being many,
are one body, so also is Christ."
1 CORINTHIANS 12:12

The Bible says that there is an invisible but very powerful union
that exists between Jesus and all His disciples; they are one Body.
It is a spiritual union. This spiritual union forms the basis of
our relationship and fellowship with Christ.

Jesus says, "I am the True Vine... Abide in Me, and I in you" (John
15:1,4). Jesus compares this union to a vine that has many
branches. Each branch lives in union with the vine. The same life
flowing in the vine is also flowing in the branches. Jesus says He
is the True Vine, and we are His branches. This is spiritual union.
As branches, we can only grow and produce spiritual fruit so long
as we continue to live, dwell in, abide, and be part of the Vine.
So then, union with God is not the reward for spirituality; it is
the basis of spirituality.

"The gospel which was preached by me is not according to man.
For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but
it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ."
GALATIANS 1:11,12


With the Biblical record before us, compare what those early
disciples believed and preached to what we see and hear being
taught and demonstrated in the name of Jesus today. If someone from
the apostolic age were to visit our generation, take an account of
our lives, document what we preach, and survey what we listen to
and currently accept as "The Gospel," how would they respond? Would
they be able to say that we preach the Gospel of the Kingdom? Could
they report back to their first century friends that we teach the
same things they taught concerning the Lord Jesus Christ and the
Kingdom of God? Or would they weep and lament at how the Church has
distorted the original message of the Ekklesia?

"He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him
and that He might send them out to preach..."
MARK 3:14

I like the way Jesus selected His disciples, and the explanation as
to why they were selected: "That they might be with Him and that He
might send them out to preach" (Mark 3:14). Their being sent forth
was contingent upon their having been with the Lord. Preaching was
only optional, but being with Him was the primary objective. If
they will only be with the Lord then they will have something to
say when they do go forth.

"We wanted to come to you--even I, Paul,
time and again--but Satan hindered us."
1 THESSALONIANS 2:18


We should not expect things to always go as planned, even when we
are indeed following the will of God, and especially when we are
trying to do what we feel led to do. Sometimes it seems as if
everything is rising up against us. Cars break down, people get
sick, misunderstandings arise, businesses fail, things happen.

We do not want to give the devil any glory and attribute everything
to him. But we do want to discern the true operation of the enemy
so we may dispose of him. We must exercise discernment and wisdom
to know the difference between the hand of the Lord, the work of
the enemy, and the natural environment. Otherwise we will suffer
unnecessarily.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

"His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace."
REVELATION 1:15

When John was given a revelation of Christ in the Isle of Patmos he
described the feet of Jesus as "fine brass as if refined in a
furnace." Brass is a symbol of judgment, and the furnace is a
symbol of wrath, purification, and refinement. This dimension of
the Lord Jesus was something quite new to John.

Because Jesus did not come to judge the world right away, but to
save it, we tend to think of Jesus only in terms of the "Lamb" -
meek, silent, longsuffering, and turning the other cheek. He
certainly is all that.

Yet here we get a glimpse of Jesus as the "Lion." He said He was
indeed a King, but that His Kingdom was not of this world. Up until
now the kingly aspect of Christ and the majestic glory of His
Kingdom had remained hidden.

"His feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace...
When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as though dead."
REVELATION 1:15,17 ESV

When this other side of Christ was revealed to John, he "fell at
His feet as though dead." At the Last Supper, John had leaned on
the Lord's breast and eaten dinner with Him. In this context,
however, he can do nothing but collapse at His feet.

There at His feet we discover there is a difference between the
Holy and the Human; the One Who comes from Above, and the ones who
come from Below; the One Who is Spirit and Truth, and those of us
who are merely flesh and blood. His feet are burnished bronze. This
is His majesty, and His righteousness. It immediately identifies
Him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the Righteous Judge, the
Living Word Who discerns the thoughts and intents of the heart.

"And [Jesus] led them out as far as Bethany,
and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. Now it came to pass,
while He blessed them, that He was parted from
them and carried up into heaven."
LUKE 24:50,51

Bethany has a heavenly savor. There is an ascendant spirit there
which lifts us up to the heavenlies. I believe that as we prepare a
place for the Lord this ascendant spirit will break forth upon us
spontaneously. It is one thing for us to try to act heavenly, and
it is quite another thing for us to enter into such communion and
fellowship with the Heavenly Man that we simply begin to exude His
heavenliness, as the priest in the Holy Place exuded the fragrance
of the sweet incense.

The Kingdom of Heaven is where Christ has the preeminence and fills
all things: and if this is the case with us individually, or
corporately, then it can be said of us that the Kingdom of Heaven
has arrived.

Today's Message from Chip Brogden

Even in the natural realm we know that a healthy physical body does
not make decisions or take any action apart from the head. It is
the head (i.e., the mind) that determines what the body will do.
Indeed, the body cannot properly function apart from the head. When
the body is disabled due to injury or disease it means either the
body is unable to carry out the instructions of the head or the
head is unable to give instructions to the body. We rightly observe
this as something that needs medical attention.

Were the head to be separated from the body the result is immediate
death. Equally obvious is the fact that the head can take no action
without involving the body.

We must not force this metaphor to an extreme and suggest that
Jesus is unable to do anything without us; but we can certainly say
that Jesus, as the Head of the Ekklesia, will not do anything
without involving His Body.

"The thief does not come except to steal,
and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life,
and that they may have it more abundantly."
JOHN 10:10


Those who hunger and thirst after Righteousness - Christ - will be
filled. Thus, the one who is filled is never hungry or thirsty. So
on the one hand I want to know the Lord and my desire for Him
increases day by day; but it is not the desperate search of a
hungry or thirsty man who is fainting and wasting away.

I am full of Him because He fills me. There is my "Life, and Life
more abundantly." My Life is not in what He gives me, but in Who He
is.

"I, John, both your brother and companion
in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ,
was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God
and for the testimony of Jesus Christ."
REVELATION 1:9

Since John is an Overcomer, God sends out the call for Overcomers
through John. John is symbolic of all Overcomers, and he is the
instrument through which God raises up Overcomers.

I can relate to John. I know many of us feel as if we are alone, in
exile, in a wilderness. Gradually we feel we are being shut up and
shut out by others who have not seen what we have seen. It is right
THERE, in the desert place, in the place of exile, in the place of
banishment, in the place of dryness, in the place of darkness, that
Christ is revealed to us. This ought to encourage us no matter what
our situation.

"I have been crucified with Christ;
it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me."
GALATIANS 2:20

Paul says that even though he was crucified, he lives. Does Paul
mean to say that he was raised from the dead with Jesus also? If
so, why have we not heard about this before now? Finally he says he
is not really living at all, but Christ lives in him. To the
natural mind, of course, this all sounds very strange. This is why
we must discern spiritual things spiritually.

It should be obvious that Paul is talking about something other
than a physical crucifixion and a physical death, burial, and
resurrection. Although he says, "I was crucified with Christ" he
does not mean that he was present with Christ in the flesh at the
moment of crucifixion; instead, he intends to show us something
much more profound.

We will soon discover that this experience of being crucified with
Christ is not unique to the apostle Paul, but is true of every
born-again child of God. Not only Paul, but all disciples of Jesus
have been crucified with Christ.

"Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you,
and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake."
MATTHEW 5:11

Expect misunderstanding. Expect persecution. Expect ridicule.
Expect mistreatment. Expect suffering. Expect rejection. Then, you
won't be surprised when it comes. And when it comes, shut your
mouth, go to the Cross, and die so you can live. Learn to kiss the
hands that nail you to the Cross, for as you are decreased, He is
increased.

It is not a better living we need, but a better dying. We cannot
reach Pentecost but by way of Passover. There can be no
resurrection without a crucifixion. There is no crown without a
Cross. To live, is Christ: to die is gain.

"Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."
MARK 16:15

From beginning to end, right up until His ascension, the passionate
subject of Jesus Christ was the Kingdom of God. When Jesus finally
did send them forth to "go into all the world and preach the Gospel
to every creature" this was not a strange new thing for which they
were unprepared. They understood (better than ever before) what the
Gospel was because Jesus had already given them their mission long
before He sent them forth.

It was not just preaching something in a general sort of way and
calling it the "Gospel." It was a Kingdom Gospel: "this gospel of
the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all
the nations, and then the end will come" (Matthew 24:14).

"My Father gives you the True Bread from Heaven."
JOHN 6:32

Why are we following the Lord? Is it for what He can do for us? Is
it so we can enjoy His blessing? Is it because He supplies our
needs? Do we want the gifts or the Gift? If our motivation is for
blessings then we will soon be disappointed. Indeed, from this time
forward, many of His disciples turned back and stopped following
Him. How many of us will continue to follow when the Lord fails to
respond to us in the way we have grown accustomed?

The Lord may provide you with bread for a season, but there is a
difference between looking to the Lord for bread and looking to the
Lord as bread. May God show us the difference. The Gift of God is
not what Christ can do for you, but Who He Himself is.

"You did not choose Me, but I chose you
and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that
your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father
in My name He may give 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.

"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.

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.
