RSMI's Believers Bible Fellowship Notes


02/16/2011 Albert Lea MN Bible Fellowship

The Real You.  Are you Valuable?

We need to know who we are to limit the devils deception
Whoever is born of God overcomes the World
We should not be ignorant of Satan’s devices. Ignorance results in wrong perception

I Thessalonians 5: 23
He prayed for our Spirit, Soul,and Body

Which one are you? ……..Spirit

Law of Genesis?
Everything produces after its own kind

Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

God created man after His Own Kind!

If God is …………………..You are
Love ……………………… Love
Joy………………………… Joy
Healed …………………….. Healed
Right ……………………… Right
Rich ………………………. Rich
Sin Free…………………… Sin Free

Have you ever heard of the saying?
You are a sinner saved by grace.

Ephesians 2 5,8
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)…For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Notice He said BY GRACE YOU ARE SAVED!

Galatians 3:13 "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:"

To be redeemed means to be taken out of one place and put into another.
You and I have been purchased out and away from one place and put into another.

Colossians 1: 12-14
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Our sins are forgiven.  We have taken out of the power darkness, and placed into the Kingdom of Heaven.  Thats where we are right now.
He has delivered us its done already. Our sins are forgiven. We are saved!

We are no longer sinners saved by grace.  Grace Saved us!

When Adam and Eve lived in the Garden they were sin free.

God created us free will agents with the power to choose.

God gave Adam boundaries Adam was created to know God!
God has His own boundaries
Example
He is love. Therefore He loves. God will never cross that boundary of not loving
He is a God of His Word. He will never say one thing, and do another!

God is good! He will never be evil or tempt anyone with evil.

God gave Adam a choice. To know Him, or to know right and wrong

God never wanted us to know about evil. His will was for us to KHOW Him, pure goodness.

In any situation you don’t need to know the right and wrong about the situation.
Ex: To spit at people is wrong.
But, when God tells you to do it, its right.
Jesus spit on a man’s eyes, and he was healed.

At a healing school service, a woman came forward for prayer. She was partially blind in her eyes. The Lord impressed upon me to spit on her eyes. So I did. She was healed!

It not about actions, or behavior, it’s about the heart.
It’s not a matter of right and wrong
It’s a matter of knowing God
Sometimes you’re in a situation and your thinking, "What should I do?"  Seek God in it, not what you think might be right and wrong.

Adam came from God

God placed Him in a body
Where did Adams body come from? The Earth

God doesn’t create your body, He shapes and forms our body. Our bodies come from our parents, much like Adams body came from the ground. Eves body came from Adam, and God formed it and shaped it.

God doesn’t create you wrong, or with disabilities.
Our body comes from our Parents, that’s why curses, sicknesses, diseases and disabilities can be generational

Our outward man is perishing
Our inward man is being renewed day by day!

That which is born of Spirit is Spirit
That which is born of Flesh is Flesh

Your soul is your mind, will, emotions, thoughts and feelings.

I Peter 3:4 “But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.”


The Hidden man of the heart (the key)
That which is not corruptible
A meek and quiet SPIRIT!
The hidden man of the heart is a spirit that is not corruptible.
The hidden man here is not the heart. It is the spirit!
The hidden man, His spirit is placed in the heart

This is who we really are. We are that spirit residing in our heart. That spirit is in the sight of God a great price. Valuable. You and I are valuable in the sight of God!

We hear people say…. We didn’t deserve to be saved….. That statement takes away the importance of what Jesus did!

God highly valued you… He thought you were important! He saw that you were incorruptible. Meaning you will live forever like Him. Sin separated you from Him; He didn’t want you to live forever alienated from Him.

God loved the world, He valued you and I so much, that’s why He sent Jesus!

Love your neighbor means to value them. We shouldn’t devalue them.

God is a Spirit, He created you and I. We are spirit, created in His image and likeness. We are His children. He values us, and loves us unconditionally
