Hi Elaine,
 
Last week we began a study on "the riches of His grace," exploring the spiritual wealth that is yours IN CHRIST.
 
The key phrase there is IN CHRIST.
 
It's never in yourself!
 
And it's not even the things you "do" for Jesus.
 
That's good news, because it means "failing to do" doesn't disqualify you from your inheritance.
 
It's not according to our goodness, but according to "the riches of His grace," since God is "rich in mercy."
 
Thank the Lord for grace and mercy!
 
But like the man who was oblivious to the acres of diamonds beneath his feet, we can be equally ignorant about God's abundant provision and miss out on all that richness and blessing.
 
I mean, if you don't KNOW that you have ALREADY been "blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ" (Eph.1:3) then you can't benefit from those blessings, can you?
 
You could even find yourself...
 
...asking for things God has already given,
 
... seeking for things God has already revealed, and
  
...knocking on doors that God had already opened!
 
Strange, isn't it?
 
Maybe the issue is not "having more" but "seeing more" of what we already have!
 
The question is: What does that inheritance consist of, who gets it, for what purpose, and when?
 
That's what we will answer in this series of teachings.
 
The Bible has quite a lot to say about this inheritance - but guess what?
 
We haven't received it yet!
 
At least, not 100%.
 
The way I understand and explain our spiritual wealth in Christ is like this:
 
1. PAST Promises
 
2. PRESENT Riches
 
3. FUTURE Inheritance  
 
We need to know what God has already promised in the PAST; this is the foundation for everything that follows.
 
We also need to know how to tap into the PRESENT riches - because we have real needs, right now, and we can't afford to wait until we get to heaven before we start walking in fruitful abundance!
 
We also need to know how God is preparing us to receive the FUTURE inheritance, so we won't be like the prodigal son and waste the whole thing on riotous living :-)
 
God is very rich, and also very wise!
 
So, first things first.
 
This week we go all the way back to God's PAST promises to Abraham to understand the PRESENT riches and the FUTURE inheritance.
 
It will be a wonderful journey!

The Danger of Familiarity
by Chip Brogden
How often do we take the presence of Jesus for granted?
Our pseudo-Christian culture is profane. I speak not of the profanity of foul language, but the profanity of treating divine things with a casual, apathetic, flippant attitude. We profane holy things by making them common, ordinary, usual, mundane, and routine.

Interestingly enough, only those who know the Holy are in danger of becoming too familiar with it. Unbelievers, those who are not yet acquainted with the Holy, cannot profane what they do not understand.
 
The danger of familiarity is in knowing and taking for granted...

Fear is a very powerful emotion and can have a negative effect on our spirit, soul, and body.

Jesus said that there would come a time when men’s hearts would fail them for fear of what was happening on the earth. We are living in that time! We all have things that we are afraid of, and life provides us with plenty of things to worry about.
 
Being a Christian does not mean we will never experience fear or have worries. The Bible does not ignore this very human emotion. Instead, it offers us an alternative to living in bondage to fear. Are you afraid? Fearful? Worried? Anxious? You can overcome fear and worry! Join us as we explore this issue together with sound, Scriptural teaching and practical wisdom.
 
This teaching is part of our Overcomer Series which offers a Biblical perspective on spiritual and emotional issues.

The Harvest is Coming
by Chip Brogden
In the history of the recovery of the Heavenly Order we have seen how, time and time again, something happened to threaten that recovery. It should be readily apparent to the reader of Scripture that there is something that relentlessly opposes God’s Ultimate Purpose in Christ.

Controversy and conflict are as much a part of the Christian life as power and blessing.

The entrance of light into darkness creates controversy and conflict, and this is how the Ekklesia came into existence. God worked through Paul to show that He can work through anyone. But everywhere he turned, Paul ran into resistance – from the Jews, from his own brothers and fellow laborers in Christ, from the Romans, and even from the devil! Even today, Paul remains a controversial and divisive figure – which is precisely why we need to study him and grasp the largeness of his view of Christ and of the Ekklesia.
 
We need to see what Paul saw, because the conflict and controversy Paul encountered in the first century is not too different from the conflict and controversy we face today.
 
What can we learn from Paul’s single-minded focus on Christ? And how can we apply those lessons to our lives, to our time, to our generation? We’ll explore those questions and answer them in this series.

Hi Elaine,
 
Last week I fully planned to complete the series on Paul, but I got into a time warp and realized more than an hour had passed and I was still on my first slide!
 
As an experienced teacher I usually know what's going on with the clock, but in this case I completely lost myself in the study.
 
Fortunately, I had enough sense to realize that rather than try and complete the rest of the teaching in a single marathon session, I would simply finish in a follow-up session.
 
So that's what we're doing this week.
 
Paul's suffering is well-known; but how was he able to overcome all these things?
 
For instance, Paul's happiest letter is Philippians, where he writes: "Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, rejoice." 
 
He wrote that while under arrest, chained to a Roman guard.
 
You don't have to be an apostle to experience tremendous difficulty, stress, and hardship; you also don't have to be an apostle to experience joy in the midst of difficult circumstances.
 
What is Paul's secret to rejoicing? 
 
How could he rejoice on the way to his execution?
 
Most importantly: What about Paul's experience can we learn and apply to our experience?
 
We conclude our study of Paul this week with the final message in the series:

Change is Coming!
by Chip Brogden
When we pray “Your Kingdom come,
Your Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven,” do
we really know what we are doing?
We are asking for two things. On the positive side, we are joining together with God and agreeing with Him, praying in line with His Eternal purpose in Christ for the recovery of the Heavenly Order and the establishment of the Irresistible Kingdom of God. On the negative side, we are asking for the end of this present evil age, the subjection of this rebellious generation, and the elimination of everything that fails to give Christ the preeminence, whether they are considered “worldly” things or “religious” things.

This kind of prayer is not a frivolous thing. It is calling for a revolution in the way things are. It is commanding all that is to make room for all that is to come...

Hi Elaine,
A few years ago I thought about an interesting book title for something I might write one day:
 
"195 Stripes."
I used this phrase in an audio teaching while discussing the things that Paul suffered.
"195 stripes" is how many welts you would accumulate on your back and legs after being chastised with 39 stripes of the lash on five separate occasions (39 X 5 = 195).
That's how many times Paul was whipped in the synagogue as punishment.
39 stripes was the maximum Jewish corporeal punishment (actually, 40 was the maximum according to Deut. 25:3, but they stopped at 39 to make sure they didn't lose count and accidentally break God's Law).
Paul got that punishment five different times: "From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one." (2 Cor. 11:24).
I want to know: what is it about a man that will take that kind of punishment and still say, "Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, rejoice!"?
What is it about a man that will take that kind of punishment and still say, "Love never fails"?
I want to know what that man knows.
I want to see what that man sees.
i want to understand what that man understands.
If I can know and see and understand what drives a man like that then maybe... just maybe... I can make sense of my own little bit of suffering and find a purpose bigger than myself worth living for.
Maybe you can, too.
That is what first got me interested in Paul.
Those 195 stripes.
This week we conclude our study of Paul with the final message in the series:

Elaine,
 
Christ is on the side of simplicity, while religion is usually on the side of complexity.

Paul’s greatest fear was that his brothers and sisters in the Lord might be “corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” (II Corinthians 11:3b). Jesus said His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Have you made the Christian life too difficult? So often, man takes something easy and light and turns it into something difficult and heavy. Jesus is calling us to forsake the complicated way and to follow Him in sincerity and simplicity.
 
In these four messages we talk about Jesus, fellowshipping with one another, growing up spiritually, and exercising spiritual discernment in the midst of all the confusion. We try to strip away all the complicated layers and complexities and get to the simple heart of things. If you’re frustrated and fed up with “trying to be a good Christian,” our prayer is that you will find simplicity and joy in the Lord as we examine these truths.

Hi Elaine,
 
One of the truths I've experienced is summed up in this saying of mine:
 
"If we want apostolic revelation, we must endure apostolic persecution."
 
This is not just an idle turn of phrase, but reflects Biblical truth and spiritual reality.
 
Two prophetic words were spoken over Paul when he first met the Lord there on the road to Damascus:
 
1) that he would receive great revelation; and
 
2) that he would know great suffering.
 
Now, you ask, does it always HAVE to be that way?
 
Maybe not, but I will say this:
 
The depth of our revelation will be measured by the depth of our suffering.
 
Little suffering = little revelation.
 
Deep suffering = deep revelation.
 
Now I say this is Biblical truth and spiritual reality; it is also my personal experience, if that counts for anything.
 
But why is this?
 
I think because we don't learn much during the good times.
 
Prosperity does not drive us to our knees.
 
Blessings do not compel us to search for deeper wisdom.
 
Success does not cause us question our deepest convictions.
 
On the other hand, when difficulties come (as they most certainly will), these difficulties often drive us to a depth of an experience with God that we would not have otherwise known.
 
This is what I mean by "the weight of circumstances."
 
Much of the revelation in the New Testament was unveiled in the "weight of circumstances."
 
Real people, with real problems, praying and seeking God for wisdom, answers, solutions.
 
And in the those depths of experiences, deep revelation flowed.
 
That is to say, deep revelation doesn't usually come to people sitting high on the mountain, basking and soaking in a peaceful, mystical cloud; it certainly does not come to people sitting in the pews during the vanity of Sunday morning "worship"; it comes in the depths of despair, when you reach the end of the road, when you have nothing left, when you don't know what else to do, and you are bowed down in the dust.
 
This has been my experience - and, I think if you are honest with yourself, you can look back on your life and see this is true.
 
Transformational spiritual truth is birthed in controversy and conflict.
 
Paul did not just teach these things, but he lived them.
 
This week we continue with this train of thought as we trace Paul's extraordinary mission and ministry...

[size=32]The Prophetic Savant[/size]

by Chip Brogden
The prophetic savant is a person afflicted with a heavenly autism, making him nearly incapable of normal relations with those around him.

If a prophet is anything, he is extra-terrestrial – above the Earth. He walks the Earth with others, but he is not of the Earth. He is from beyond; he is from above. If we trace his history we will find that he may or may not have had a normal childhood. He may or may not have come through extraordinary experiences. But at some point in his life, either as a child, or as a young adult, or as an old man, something from another realm broke through the thin membrane between Heaven and Earth and took hold of him. It may have been a burning bush, or a Voice crying out to him from beyond the veil, or a Heavenly Vision which brought him briefly into contact with something and Someone that he could not completely fathom...

Hi Elaine,
 
Last week we learned why any attempt to understand Paul apart from his miraculous conversion on the road to Damascus is doomed to fail.
 
We cannot separate such a man from his message; we cannot understand his perspective unless we have seen and experienced what he has seen and experienced.
 
All of this underscores the value of revelation... and by "revelation" I'm referring to that truth revealed by the Holy Spirit.
 
Paul did not just collect some teachings "about" Jesus; Paul had a revelation of Christ IN him.
 
I'm suggesting that theological study and doctrinal analysis are merely academic pursuits, intellectual enigmas, and ultimately useless without "the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord."
 
It may be useful for us to examine ourselves and ask how, and where, and by what means, and through whom, we arrived at the revelatory knowledge of Christ. I'm afraid that much of what we think we know we simply picked up along the way as moved around in Organized Religion, listening to second- and third-generational, hand-me-down teachings and traditions of men.
 
What Paul learned didn't come from man, but from the Holy Spirit.
 
This revelation is the key to our surviving and thriving in the last days - and if that means discarding everything else we think we know in order to possess a single pearl of great price, then that's what we have to do.
 
What did Paul see, hear, and experience on the road to Damascus that is valuable enough for him to lay down his life for?
 
And is it even possible for you and for me to experience this kind of revelation of Christ WITHOUT going through some dramatic encounter like Paul?
 
Join us for this week's Online Bible study as we consider these things and why they matter now more than ever.

Elaine,
 
The desert you’re trying to get out of is exactly the place where God intends to bless you and reveal more of Christ to you!

When I talk about the wilderness, when I talk about the desert, what am I talking about? Spiritually speaking, it’s that place where you feel all alone. It’s that place where you no longer have the sense of God’s manifest presence. That is, you know mentally that God is with you, but you don’t have the sense of it. Everything feels like you have been abandoned or forsaken by God. Perhaps you are discouraged, or depressed. Perhaps you’ve been hurt or disappointed. Perhaps it’s something in your body, some weakness or ailment that you can’t seem to get the victory over. Maybe you’ve been under attack, either from other people, or attacked in a spiritual sense. Maybe you’re just pressed under the weight of circumstances. It could be a problem at work, or a problem at school, or a problem in your marriage. For many people it’s a financial difficulty, struggling to make ends meet, or trying to recover from a hardship.
 
Or maybe you’ve come out of Organized Religion, and there’s a great big void, a great big empty place in your life that used to be filled by “church”, and so you’re trying to find fellowship, but there seems to be no fellowship. Or you thought you found fellowship in a house church, but you were disappointed to discover that it was not what you thought it would be. For whatever reason it didn’t meet your need. Maybe you don’t even know why, but the point is you’re still seeking something you haven’t found yet. Maybe there’s something lacking in your relationship with God. He seems distant, or uncaring, or unavailable. You don’t have a sense that you are making any progress. You feel like you’re either standing still or going backward. You pick up the Bible and try to read but you get nothing out of it. Perhaps you keep this up for awhile and then maybe you give up reading it altogether. Maybe you try to pray but it seems like your prayers are bouncing off the ceiling. Maybe you keep praying or maybe you just give up. Then perhaps you think you’ve done something wrong, that you have displeased the Lord terribly. You try to confess your sins but can’t really think of anything you’ve done wrong. You try to get back to the way you used to feel but nothing seems to work. Maybe you start to wonder if you’ve lost your salvation, or if you’ve committed the unpardonable sin, or grieved the Holy Spirit so badly that He’s left you.
 
If you can understand God’s Purpose for the desert, if you can understand how and why and that He wants to prepare a way for you in the wilderness, then I think it will encourage you. Whatever does not kill you makes you stronger. There is such a blessing in the desert. There are things you learn in the desert that you cannot and will not learn anywhere else. But what I see too many times is people seeking a quick deliverance! God calls them to the wilderness, He calls them to the desert, and they resist it, or they go and immediately look for a way out. They don’t stay there long enough to derive any spiritual benefit. You’re trying to avoid the desert, or get out of the desert, because the desert doesn’t feel good. And I’m saying the desert you’re trying to get out of is exactly the place where God intends to bless you and reveal more of Christ to you!
If you can relate to any of the above, this teaching is for you!

Hi Elaine,
 
Part of living in North Carolina is having to deal with the occasional hurricane :-)
 
We've been through this many times, and I can just about guarantee that (1) we will lose power tonight or tomorrow, and (2) we could be without power and/or Internet for several days.
 
So I'm emailing you now (while I still can) to let you know that I'm rescheduling this week's online Bible study for next week:
 
PAUL: THE APOSTLE OF CONTROVERSY (Part 1)
Thursday, August 13, 2020

We'll see you on the other side of the storm!
 
Thank you for your prayers and support.

What makes people like Paul so interesting and special is not the absence of controversy and conflict in their lives, but how they managed to overcome it and prevail in spite of it for something spiritual and heavenly here on the earth.

Hope to "see" you online!

Hi Elaine,
 
Thank you for your well-wishes and prayers for me last week; I really appreciate it!
 
Controversy and conflict are part of the spiritual life.
 
I'm starting a new online teaching series this week to explore how (and why) God uses controversy and conflict to push His Christ-centered Kingdom agenda forward.
 
The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will perform, and is performing, His perfect will.
 
Yet we know there is a great deal of resistance to that Will.
 
This resistance creates controversy and conflict... and if you aren't experiencing that in your own life then you probably aren't growing!
 
The Scriptural record of Paul's life is an excellent place to see this, and it reveals so much that is relevant to us today.
 
We often think of the apostles - indeed, most people in the Bible - as super-spiritual saints who walked around in the clouds all the time.
 
The truth is: they were human beings, men and women, flesh and blood, ordinary people doing extraordinary things while struggling with their own unique sets of problems and challenges.
 
What makes people like Paul so interesting and special is not the absence of controversy and conflict in their lives, but how they managed to overcome it and prevail in spite of it for something spiritual and heavenly here on the earth.
 
Please join us online this week for an important introduction to this new series - I think you'll enjoy it!

The Foolishness of the Cross
by Chip Brogden
The principle of the Cross shows us that God’s Love WILL allow us to suffer and even die in order to demonstrate a depth of Love that we cannot comprehend.
How I wish taking up the Cross was a once-and-for-all thing, that you could just crucify Self and give the thing you are grasping over to God, get the imprint of the Cross on it, and receive it back in three days in its resurrected form.
But there is always a deeper death to die and a greater Life to come forth from death, so I find the process must be constantly repeated.
A ministry (or more importantly, the minister) will pass through many seasons of death, burial, and resurrection. But even in this I see that He does not turn “taking up the Cross” into a work of the flesh, and does not reject our feeble attempts to do what we think is right, even when we are wholly or partially motivated by flesh.

What’s wrong with the Church is that Christ is not preached, the Cross is not taken up, and the Self has not died. So if I am to suffer, let me suffer for preaching the foolishness of the Cross.

Hi Elaine!
You were created to love Him, and to be loved by Him. But too many times, the work of the Lord becomes more important than the Lord of the work.
 
Like Martha, you become troubled with “much serving”, and you miss the blessing Mary has discovered by sitting at the feet of Jesus. Ministry to people is important, but it isn’t the most important thing. We know all about ministering to one another – preaching, teaching, singing, conducting evangelistic crusades and sending missionaries. All these things are needed, but learning how to minister to the Lord is the most important ministry of all because this is the basis for every other kind of ministry. Sadly, few people know how to do this. Therefore, ministry to the Lord is on the verge of becoming extinct.

The Father is seeking those who will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. Jesus stands at the door and knocks, waiting for a lukewarm Church to open up to Him. He is looking for men and women who are not after the things He has or the things He does, but are after His very heart. The question is: has He found what He is looking for in us?

In this series, we discuss what it means to meet the Lord’s Need and we introduce the concept of reaching up, reaching in, and reaching out. We talk about the difference between ministering for the Lord and ministering to the Lord. We show you how to enter into the Holy of Holies and experience the fellowship, communion, and relationship with God that He wants each of us to enjoy. And, we give you some practical advice for establishing a place where the Lord’s Need is met – first in your own heart and then in your small group, church, or fellowship.

The Lord is looking for people to whom He can reveal Himself, share His secrets, and make known the mystery of His ways. But there is no revelation without a relationship. Ministering To The Lord will encourage you to go beyond the veil and spend more time sitting at His feet in the Secret Place of the Most High God, where you learn how to be a friend He can confide in.
 
Go here to listen to this teaching:
https://www.chipbrogden.com/ministering-to-the-lord
 
And get all the other f.r.e.e teachings from this page:

All of these are "give what you can afford" as the Lord leads.

Hi Elaine,
 
I always say that when Jesus revealed Himself to me, it was the beginning of the end of my career as a preacher for Organized Religion.
 
Of course, I didn't realize it at the time.
 
But in a moment my eyes were opened to "see" Christ seated in the heavenlies.
 
Just as amazing - I "saw" myself seated TOGETHER, TOGETHER, TOGETHER with Him (Eph. 2)!
 
Of course, this is the only possible outcome for all of us who have been "crucified with Christ" (Gal. 2:20).
 
Why was that moment of revelation "the beginning of the end" of my church ministry?
 
Because, at the same time I "saw" Him, I "saw" the Body of Christ - the REAL Body of Christ, the Ekklesia!
 
And I saw the difference between the Church that Man Built and the Ekklesia that Jesus is building.
 
I've spent the rest of my life walking in this and teaching it to others "outside the camp" because the ones "inside the camp" don't want to hear it.
 
But the truth of the matter is that a religion ABOUT Jesus is the greatest single hindrances to a relationship WITH Jesus that I know of.
 
To be seated with Him, we have to "come out of her"! (Rev. 18:4).
 
The revelation is free but there is a price to be paid.
 
I will say this: the price is worth the cost; what I have received is far more than what I have given up.
 
To be seated TOGETHER with Him! Who or what can touch you there!
 
To overcome as He overcame! Who can resist that?
 
Now is the time to ARISE TOGETHER with Him!
 
Stop fighting, stop struggling, stop wrestling with flesh and blood.
 
Learn what it means to be seated with Christ in the heavenly places FAAAAAAR ABOVE everything else.
 
Join us this week we as continue down this wonderful path that God invites us on...
