john roy bohlen & John 5:30

"Communion": Now this is a lovely word. Communion.

It sounds like "commune", or "communication", or "community".

I have a question: What if a medicine could be invented, in pill form, or, in liquid form, that one could eat or drink, and, in so doing, become healthy, or increase strength, or, improve the quality of your life. What if the medicine, or the nutritional supplement were free? Would you like or enjoy or want it? Let's say that it also has a pleasant taste.

But, most medicines have side effects, or possible risks or dangers. Even beautiful, wealthy, and successful people can sometimes die from taking medicines the doctor prescribes.

The Bible tells a story of a couple of medicines like this.

CO-CREATORS WITH GOD!

by

john roy bohlen and John 5:30

1 Cor 3:9 "For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building." KJV

Ps 110:3 "Thy people will volunteer freely in the day of Thy power;"

NAS

 

Prayer: "Father God, I am volunteering to work with You, to co-labour with You, in any way that You deem appropriate. Daddy Yahweh, how can I help, how can I be of use to You? What can I do to help?"

 

2 Cor 10:3 "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled." KJV

I have a question: What if you do not use the weapons of warfare that God has given to you? These weapons are mighty to tear down strongholds that need to be torn down. What if I do not tear them down?

Papa Yahweh: What are my weapons of warfare? How do I, can I, use them? What strongholds do You want me to tear down, pull down? What 'high thing' do You want me to cast down? How and what disobedience do you want me to revenge?

Matt 18:18 "Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on Earth shall be bound in Heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on Earth shall be loosed in Heaven. 19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on Earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father Which is in Heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them." KJV

 

Question: What if something on earth needs to be bound, and I don't bind it? Will it be bound? And, what if there is something or someone on earth that needs to be loosed, and I do not loose it or them. Will they or it be loosed? Or, will they remain tied up. What if someone is tied up, and God has given to me the command and the ability to untie them, and, instead of untying them, I, instead, say, "May the will of the Lord be done.", as if it is still God's problem.

Daddy God, what would You like for me to bind? And, what do You want me to lose. With whom do You want me to agree with about what?

 

Ps 149:5-9 NKJV

"5 Let the saints be joyful in glory;

Let them sing aloud on their beds.

6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,

And a two-edged sword in their hand,

7 To execute vengeance on the nations,

And punishments on the peoples;

8 To bind their kings with chains,

And their nobles with fetters of iron;

9 To execute on them the written judgment --

This honor have all His saints." Praise the LORD!

 

Daddy Yahweh Father God: Thank You for this two edged sword that You have placed in my hand.

1) What do You want me to do with this two edged sword?

2) How and what vengeance on what nations do You want me to execute vengeance upon?

3) What punishments upon what people?

4) What kings do You want me to bind?

5) How and who do You want me bind what nobles with fetters on iron? 6) Who and how do you want me to execute what written judgement upon?

The Bible says that we are co-labourers with God. Virtually every cause and effect relationship we have with God causes us to be co-creators with Him. Every miracle where Yahweh used a person as the channel of the miracle, caused that person to be involved in a co-labouring, co-creating with God.

There is even a sense in which, when God created us, and then commanded and invited us to be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue and exercise dominion over it, causes us to be involved with Him in the development of His creation.

The ultimate co-creating that we can be involved with is when we discover and live "The King's Greatest Secret".

Think about it: God comes to live inside of us. Shouldn't that make a difference?! I was thinking about demon possession. In Africa, we hear demon stories about soul travel, body travel, flying on brooms, healings, curses, etc. But, instead of demon possession or devil possession, what about God possession??? Instead of having an evil spirit, how about having the Holy Spirit?! In literature, fiction or otherwise, and in movies, we have stories of what happens when people turn into vampires, wolves, strong people, heroes, evil people, etc. But, what would happen if we had people change into God - possessed, Holy Spirit - possessed, Christ - possessed people?!!

 

Remember what happened when the Holy Spirit came upon people in the past?!

Exod 31:3 "And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, 4 To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, 5 And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship." (KJV)

Num 11:25 "And Yahweh came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the Spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the Spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease." (KJV)

Deut 34:9 "And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the Spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as Yahweh commanded Moses. 10 And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom Yahweh knew face to face, 11 In all the signs and the wonders, which Yahweh sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land, 12 And in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel." (KJV)

Judg 6:34 "But the Spirit of Yahweh came upon Gideon, and he blew a trumpet; and Abi-ezer was gathered after him." (KJV)

Judg 14:5 " - behold, a young lion roared against him. 6 And the Spirit of Yahweh came mightily upon him (Samson), and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand: but he told not his father or his mother what he had done." (KJV)

Spiritual warfare is the exercise of our spiritual weapons and gifts and abilities in God in a co-creating way.

 

SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF CO-CREATION WITH GOD

Not demon-possessed, but God possessed!

In a movie "Red Planet", starring Arnold Swartzenegger, this super guy had another slimy but brilliant person inside him, they got shot, but they were super heroes while it lasted. How much more, if Christ lives in us!

I had a dream, 24th of January 2002, in which the Lord expanded on previous themes, but this time, by negative example, and, I believe that the Lord is continuing to lead me.

For example, the story of "The Incredible Hulk", is a story about a person who, when stressed, changes in to a kind of terrible, but good monster, with superhuman strength, etc. The beast roars and contorts, with torn clothes, and gigantic muscles.

But look at the truth about God coming to live on the inside of us! It is Yahshua Jesus Yahweh, Creator King of Everything, Who comes to live within!!

I was also given insight as to how the enemy comes to distort this process, by bringing destructive pride, man (or woman) worship, sexual side tracking. By sexual side-tracking, I am talking about how the Presence of God in a person's life, begins to make that person so beautiful, so graceful, so lovely, so wonderful, so talented, so fruit of the Spirit kind and loving, that someone else will "fall in love" or be attracted to that person. Often the person in whom Christ dwells, has had a dysfunctional background, or may not realize what is happening, and become victimized by the other person, by the enemy's design.

I had another dream, the morning of June 19, 2007, in which I was prophesying with loud noise with my voice, and by striking objects together that would make very loud noise, and remember thinking that the reason for our loudspeakers in the barn were for prophesying loudly to the neighborhood.

 

BODY STEWARDSHIP

An area of potential waste is in the area of the physical body. If the enemy can keep us ignorant of how the Presence of God in our lives is to impact and affect our body, or if we remain ignorant, then a great waste has taken place.

Tell me, shouldn't the Presence of God in our bodies make us more healthy? If the Creator King of Everything is living in our bodies, shouldn't His Presence make us more healthy, and strong, and vibrant, and effervescent, and energetic and whole? Shouldn't the Presence of a perfect God, a Perfect Christ, an all powerful Holy Spirit in our bodies, make us more healthy???

We've got to get the idea of the Presence of God being in a cathedral, temple, a mountain-top, a closet, a dream, a mystical place - INTO OUR BODIES!!!

Yes, Christ is coming some day, but in the meanwhile, HE wants to come and live on the inside of our bodies, our feet, our hands, our scalp, our skin, our eyes, our feet, our legs, our loins, our belly, our chest, our liver, our kidneys, our pancreas, our arms, our hands, our face, our nose, our brain, etc. AND. HE wants to change those organs and bones and brain and body parts!!! Amen. That's one reason HE took all of these things with Him to the Cross and allowed such abuse of HIS physical body: SO WE COULD BE HEALTHY!!! By HIS stripes we are healed!!! HE HIMSELF bore our sicknesses in HIS BODY, so that we would not have to be sick or unhealthy.

 

OUR SOUL:

OUR WILL, OUR EMOTIONS, OUR MIND,

OUR SUB-CONSCIOUS MIND, OUR MEMORIES

There is what is known in Christendom a phenomenon called "inner healing" or "healing of the emotions". The problem with many who are practitioners in these areas is that they often lack a revelation of "THE KING'S GREATEST SECRET!"!! There is much good that they do, but here, I believe that their ministry and approach can be improved. Consequently, there is often no lasting healing, or, it can be wrongly based.

Let's look at some Scriptural examples of co-creation with Yahweh.

 

SPEAKING THINGS INTO EXISTENCE

There are many examples from the Bible where men of God "spoke things into existence".

In Genesis, God spoke, and the Universe was created, and all things.

God told Moses to speak to the Rock. Num.20:8

God told Ezekiel to speak to the dry bones. Ezek 37:4 "Again He said unto me, 'Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, "O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD (Yahweh). '5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; "Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:" ' " ' " KJV

Ezek 39:17 "And as for you, son of man, thus says the Lord GOD, 'Speak to every kind of bird and to every beast of the field,' "Assemble and come, gather from every side to My sacrifice which I am going to sacrifice for you, as a great sacrifice on the mountains of Israel, that you may eat flesh and drink blood." ' " NAS

Jesus Yahshua said that it was the Father in Him that did the following works: John 14:10 "The Father that dwelleth in Me, He doeth the works."

Jesus Yahshua telling the dead girl to arise. Mark 5:41

Jesus Yahshua declaring the sins forgiven. Luke 5:20 & 7:48

Jesus Yahshua speaking to the storm to still. Mk 4:39

Jesus Yahshua telling Lazurus to come forth. Jn 11:43

Jesus Yahshua commanding the demons to go out. Mk 1;25; 5:8; 9:25

Jesus Yahshua speaking to the fig tree to be cursed. Mark 11:21-24

21 "And being reminded, Peter said to Him, 'Rabbi, behold, the fig tree which You cursed has withered.' 22 And Jesus answered saying to them, 'Have faith in God. 23 Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, "Be taken up and cast into the sea," and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it shall be granted him.' " NAS

Jesus Yahshua commending His Spirit to the Father. Lk 23:46

Jesus Yahshua telling Peter that the gold would be in the fish's mouth.

Jesus Yahshua telling the disciples to put nets on the other side of the boat.

Jesus Yahshua telling the disciples that He would make them fishers of men.

Jesus Yahshua said that "The Father in Me, does the works!"

Is "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven." a request, or a declaration of faith? We may miss the point if we always see it as a plaintive plea.

 

WAYS TO PRAY

Father, Yahweh, In the Mighty Name of Yahshua, Son of Yahweh, by the Holy Spirit, I declare and prophesy "open doors of utterance that the Gospel of the Kingdom may spread unhindered."

I declare in the Name of Yahshua that the needed finances come in, and more besides so that we may give abundantly to others.

In the Mighty Name of Yahshua, Son of Yahweh, by the Holy Spirit, I bind, cast out and away from us and this place, and curse to hell, every hindrance to our lives and ministry in the mighty Name of Yahshua. I bind every spirit, principality and power, every ruler of darkness of the air, spiritual wickedness in high places,

We speak that the needed finances come in from every point on the compass - that God raise up the needed help. That the books be printed, that the funds needed for their printing would come forth, that there would be a market for them, and a desire, that the doors of utterance be opened to other lands, other countries.

Prophesy that recordings be made of singing and that people will want to see them.

In short, use your mouth as an instrument with which to declare and prophesy what ever you believe to be the perfect will of God.

You see, if you really have a revelation of "the King's Greatest Secret!", then you will believe for, and allow God to create, to speak, to do, now, in and through you!!!"

New songs. We prophesy and agree and declare that you will be all that God wants it to be.

The importance of tongues: The Spirit of God is given a voice through whom to pray, to create, to worship, to judge.

Active ministry from now on.

Dance, march, sing, worship,

This is a time of inventions, creativity, art, dance, plays, new songs, poems, music, prophesies, breakthroughs.

A ministry of teaching and miracles that will reach round the world.

From now on, we must pray as though the promises are true, as though prayer accomplishes something good, as though prayer changes things.

By that same token, God leads us to bind and lose, to agree together, to - -

God created the world by this means, by faith, yes, but the means by which this faith was expressed was the spoken word of faith declaration, "Let there be ---!!!" and there was.

BY FAITH, DOING THINGS, TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN

LESSON OF THE STORY OF THE PRODIGAL SON: Luke 15

The Prodigal Son, claimed his inheritance. The Older Son was angry. The Father said, "All that I have is yours. You could have had the party and the fatted calf and the gold ring, any time you wanted it!"

"Pretend" and "Pretend"

I use the word "pretend" in two different ways: 1) In its usual sense, that is, "To act like something is true, when it is not true.", But, I also use the word "pretend" 2) To act like something is true, when IT IS TRUE!"

Every time the Lord asks us to "take something by faith, He then wants us to act like it is true, because it is true!" For example, when the Bible says that, "By His stripes, you were healed!", it means that, after praying, claiming, declaring, agreeing, and believing that you are healed, that it makes perfectly good sense for us to begin ACTING LIKE we are healed!

In Romans 6:11, it says for us to "Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord." What this means is that, in 'reckoning', God is commanding us to 'act like it is true, because IT IS TRUE!" When we pray, we are to act like we have the answer to our prayer!

"If 2 of you agree concerning anything, I will do it!"

"What ever you ask = I will DO it!"

"Whatever you bind, shall be bound!"

"Whatever you loose, will be loosed."

Ps 149 "This honour HAVE ALL His godly ones:

5 Let the godly ones exult in glory;

Let them sing for joy on their beds.

6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,

And a two-edged sword in their hand,

7 To execute vengeance on the nations,

And punishment on the peoples;

8 To bind their kings with chains,

And their nobles with fetters of iron;

9 To execute on them the judgment written;

This is an honor for all His godly ones.

Praise the LORD!" NAS

Isa 45:11 "Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of My hands command ye Me. 12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded."

Col 3:3-4 "My life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, Who IS our Life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory!" Why wait for the Second Coming for this to be operative in our lives?!

"For me to live, is Christ!" Phil 1:21 What about right now, for this to be true?!

"I declare that I am well, in Yahshua's Name!" Amen! "By Christ's stripes, I AM healed!!!" Amen!

SPEAK IT! Declare it. Do it! Say it. Prophesy it. Sing it. Believe it! Agree together concerning it. Shout it. Affirm it. Speak as though it is done. Act like it is done.

":If two agree, it shall be done!"

"If you ask anything . ."

ASK!

Mark 11:22 "And Jesus answering saith unto them, 'Have faith in God. 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, 'Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea!'; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, 'What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.' (!!!) 25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also Which is in Heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father Which is in Heaven forgive your trespasses."

Zech 10:1 "Ask ye of the LORD Yahweh rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD Yahweh shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field."

Matt 6:31 "Therefore take no thought, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or, 'What shall we drink?' or, 'Wherewithal shall we be clothed?' 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."

Matt 7:7 "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father Which is in Heaven give good things to them that ask Him?"

Matt 18:18 "Verily I say unto you,

Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father Which is in Heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them."

Matt 21:21 "Jesus answered and said unto them, 'Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, "Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea"; it shall be done.' 22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive'. "

Luke 11:8 "I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth. 9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? 12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?"

John 11:25 "Jesus said unto her, 'I am the Resurrection, and the Life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this?" (Say "No"!)

John 13:20 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that receiveth whomsoever I send, receiveth Me; and he that receiveth Me receiveth Him That sent Me."

John 13:34 "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye 'love one another'; 'as I have loved you, that ye also love one another'. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are My disciples, if ye have love one to another."

John 14:12 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, 'He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in My Name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in My Name, I will do it."

John 16:23 "And in that day ye shall ask Me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in My Name, He will give it you. 24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in My Name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full."

John 17:9 "I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given Me; for they are Thine. 10 And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I am glorified in them."

James 1:5 "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, That giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways."

1 John 3:21 "Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. 22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight."

Just because some "hyper-faith" people do this with unworthy motives, are we to not do the "right on faith" things and matters that ARE will of God?!

1 John 5:14 "And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us: 15 And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him."

BELIEVE!

Matt 9:28 "And when He was come into the house, the blind men came to Him: and Jesus saith unto them, 'Believe ye that I am able to do this?' They said unto Him, 'Yea, Lord.' 29 Then touched He their eyes, saying, 'According to your faith be it unto you.' "

Mark 9:23 "Jesus said unto him, 'If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.' 24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, 'Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.' "

Mark 11:22 "And Jesus answering saith unto them, 'Have faith in God. 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, 'Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea!'; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.' "

Lord God, I repent for doubting, for wavering, for not having faith.

Mark 16:15 "And He said unto them, 'Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My Name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18.They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." !!!

Luke 8:10 "And He said, 'Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing, they might not see, and hearing, they might not understand. 11 Now the parable is this: The Seed is the Word of God. 12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the Word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. 13 They on the Rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the Word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. 14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. 15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the Word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. 16 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.' "

Luke 8:41 "And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and besought Him that He would come into his house: 42 For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as He went, the people thronged Him. 43 And a woman, having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, 44 Came behind Him, and touched the border of His garment: and immediately, her issue of blood stanched. 45 And Jesus said, 'Who touched Me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with Him said, 'Master, the multitude throng Thee and press Thee, and sayest thou, "Who touched Me?" ' 46 And Jesus said, 'Somebody hath touched Me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of Me. 47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before Him, she declared unto Him before all the people for what cause she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately. 48 And He said unto her, 'Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.' 49 While He yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to Him, 'Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master'. 50 But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, 'Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.' 51 And when He came into the house, He suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden. 52 And all wept, and bewailed her: but He said, 'Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth.' "

John 20:25 "The other disciples therefore said unto him, 'We have seen the Lord'. But he said unto them, 'Except I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into His side, I will not believe.' 26 And after eight days again His disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, 'Peace be unto you.' 27 Then saith He to Thomas, 'Reach hither thy finger, and behold My hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into My side: and be not faithless, but believing'. 28 And Thomas answered and said unto Him, 'My Lord and my God'. 29 Jesus saith unto him, 'Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.' "

2 Cor 4:13 "We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;"

Father God, may I ask You? What would You like for me to speak?

 

SUPERNATURAL JUDGEMENT

by john roy bohlen & John 5:30

By now you surely know the King's Greatest Secret!. If not, send to us and get a copy, or, go on the internet, the web, to www.Great-Commission-Ministries.org, or, The King's Greatest Secret.org? and READ The King's Greatest Secret on the web.

This following explanation of the King's Greatest Secret should NOT be a substitute for reading, learning and knowing the Secret, but I will do my best to bring you up to speed.

The King's Greatest Secret

When Christ went to the Cross, He took you with Him there, into His crucifixion, His death, and His burial. He also took your sins, so you can be forgiven. He took your sicknesses, so you can be healed. But, Jesus also took YOU, so you could be delivered from and be free from you, from your inferiorities, your insufficiencies, from your old self, from your sinful nature. That is why Jesus took YOU with Him to the Cross, into His death, and into His burial. Romans 6, Colossians 3 and in 1:27, Ephesians 1 and 2, Galatians 2:20 all describe this King's Greatest Secret. I call it this because in Colossians 1:27 it is called "the Mystery of the Gospel of the Ages". A 'mystery' is a secret. The 'Gospel' is the Good News. The 'Ages' means all of history. In other words, "The greatest Good News Secret of all Time"!!! Since it is God's Own Good News, I call it, "The King's Greatest Secret!"

But then, God did NOT leave us in the grave or in His Tomb. The Story does not stop with our crucifixion, death and burial. When Christ was raised up from death, He also raised us up with Him in newness of life, and gave us a whole brand new nature, gave us His Mind, gave us His Life, His nature, His righteousness, His power, Himself. Furthermore, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Heavenly Father made it possible for God to live His very Own Life through you!!!!!!!!

In Galatians 2:20, the Apostle Paul says a very strange thing:

1) First, Paul tells us that he has died, has been killed, has been murdered and martyred. He says, "I have been crucified with Christ".

2) Second, Paul tells us that, in spite of having been killed, that he is living. Paul says, "Nevertheless, I live!".

3) Third, Paul tells us that it is really not him, the Apostle Paul who is living, "Yet not I".

4) Finally, Paul gives the explanation: "But Christ lives in me"!!.

All this time we thought that it was Paul who wrote the epistles, and Paul who took the missionary journeys. Now we find out that it was, in fact, really Jesus, disguised as the Apostle Paul, Who wrote the epistles and Who made the missionary journeys!

Christ Himself followed the same pattern. All of this time, we thought that it was Jesus Who did the miracles, during His earthly ministry. John 14:10 "Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of Myself: but the Father That dwelleth in Me, He doeth the works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very works' sake." KJV All this time, we thought it was Jesus, Who did the miracles. But now, we discover that it was the Heavenly Father Who did the miracles through Jesus!

The Lord God does NOT want us to live our lives. God does NOT want us to try to live the Christian life. Jesus wants to BEEEEEE our Life. Christ wants us to get out of the way, and allow Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly Father to live His Own Life through us. God does not want us to try hard to think good thoughts. Jesus wants to think His Own thoughts through us, speak His Own words through us. Christ wants to wear our clothes, our skin. God wants to walk around in our shoes. God wants to write through our fingers, speak through our lips, be holy through us, be righteous through us, do the will of God through us. Colossians 3 says, "When Christ Who IS our Life" - - - Will you let Jesus live His Own Life through you?!!.

This is the King's Greatest Secret. Jesus does not want us to try to live the Christian life. He wants us to "reckon ourselves to be dead", and then for us to sweetly allow the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit to occupy EVERY part of us, so that He, God, can live His glorious Life through us, all the time, uninterruptedly, increasingly, unceasingly. Amen.

 

IMPLICATIONS AND APPLICATIONS OF

"THE SECRET"

Now, having explained and established this Secret, we can move on to at least ONE of the implications and results and fruits and demonstrations of the outworking of the Secret.

Now, let us ask ourselves this question: What would Jesus do, what would God Himself do, if He were actually, really here, on the Earth, disguised, dressed up in a human being like you?

If Jesus came back to earth, what would He do?

If Christ returned, as King, how would He act, what would He do?

For example, many people blame God for allowing bad things to happen to good people. I just heard something on the news: I just heard that a crippled lady was taking a walk, when 3 guys came out of hiding with clubs. They proceeded to beat this helpless woman, among other horribles, these men with their clubs broke the woman's fingers and bones, and one of her fingers fell off. She barely escaped with her life, but these men beat her and beat her and beat her. The police were looking for the men, but had not find them. When I heard this and saw this on the news, I began shouting at God, "God, why did You allow this to happen?!!!!"

Now, let's pretend that God came upon the scene, but not until the lady was in the hospital. What would God do about the woman? He would heal her, embrace her, apologize to her, dry her tears.

What would God do about the 3 men who broke the woman's bones? He would punish them, and never allow them to beat anyone else again!

Now, let us ask: What if God, Jesus as King of Everything, is now alive and well on the Earth, dressed up like you, wearing your skin. Will that Living Jesus, living within your skin, do any differently?

IF THE KING'S GREATEST SECRET REALLY WORKS . . .

If the King's Greatest Secret really works, and it does, how will Jesus act, when He is walking around in your shoes, in your clothes, in your body, in your skin?

MIRACLE JUDGEMENT

Picture this: What would Superman do? Spiderman? Batman? Mighty Mouse? Super Woman? Tarzan? Roy Rogers? The Incredible Hulk? Hero Swartzenegger? Hero Raiders of the Lost Ark? Any run-of-the-mill hero? Any decent citizen? They would kick some ass. These heroes would take care of business. These heroes would see to it that these bullies would NEVER beat any body again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sometimes, instead of praying to God, act like He wants to speak through you! Allow Him to speak through you.

PERSONAL EXAMPLES OF MIRACLE JUDGEMENT

I had been working as a deputy probation officer in California. We had a friend who was an elder in the church we attended. The next door neighbor to this elder and his wife and children, sexually molested their little 3 year old girl. The case went to trial and the man was found guilty. He was given a slap on the wrist, a light fine, a small jail time and was released. Now, he is tormenting the elder and his family, mocking them across the fence from them. According to the law, nothing else could be done. When I heard about it, I went and stood behind the man's house in the back alley. I bound. I agreed. I used the weapons of my warfare that are mighty. I decreed, "Father God, in the mighty Name of Jesus, I bind this man from every molesting anyone again. In Jesus' Name, I decree that this man never mocks or ridicules his neighbour again!" I did not ask God to kill this man, but I decreed that he would never mock or molest any one ever again. That man's funeral was one week later.

In South Africa, there is much problem with armed robbers breaking into homes and raping women. While there, I prophesied that God was going to bring supernatural judgement against them, and that citizens would find the dead bodies of armed robbers on their doorsteps, the robbers being killed BEFORE they had an opportunity to rob. That very night, a neighbour saw an armed robber attempting to break and enter one of the church member's homes, and shot the armed robber dead on the doorstep of the man who had heard me prophesy.

A woman friend of ours was continually persecuted and tormented by a man. In prayer, I bound the man from doing this any more. In less than a week, the man was found dead in a snowbank, outside the lady's home. We did not ask God to kill anyone. We just bound the silliness from continuing.

That same woman was being terrorized by her father and another wicked man. The Lord brought a spirit of intercession upon me and another friend named Wells Wright. While we were fervently binding and loosing, these men had forced their way into the lady's home and were terrorizing her. While we were praying, the father fell down of a heart attack, and the other wicked man, while trying to escape in a car, hit a tree, and was killed.

In none of these cases, did I ask God to kill these bad people. I simply bound them from hurting and tormenting, ever again. When I bound - God bound. I used weapons of warfare to pull down some strongholds that NEEDED to be torn down. God expects you to do the same.

Witchcraft is the use of supernatural power to do something that is NOT the will of God. But God wants you and me to use Supernatural Power to accomplish things that ARE the will of God.

Or, do you want to be a wimp? A sissy?

Do NOT "TURN THE OTHER CHEEK!"

Pretend with me that you are sitting in a restaurant with a lady and a drunk &/or demon possessed man staggers over to your table and slaps the lady. According to the Bible, the lady is to sit there and turn her other cheek. But is there ANY place in the Bible that says that YOU are to sit there and turn YOUR other cheek, while the man prepares to hit your sister on her cheek for the second time?

Listen: It may not be your fault that your sister got hit the first time, but, as sure as heaven, it WILL BE YOUR FAULT if sister gets slapped the second time!!! If she gets hit the second time, it will be because you are a coward, a sissy, a wimp and worse. But we do the same thing upon hearing of the persecution and martyrdom of fellow Christians around the World. We react and respond with sissy prayers and wimpy, cowardly responses. Somebody slaps my wife, he or she has to go through me before she gets slapped the second time, or I am a miserable low life measly chicken coward disgusting wimp! Incidentally, if the same thing happened, not with hitting, but with gossiping, the exact same principle applies. Many years ago, I made a vow that never again in my presence, would I allow ANYONE to backbite, gossip against, sow discord against any of my brothers or sisters in Christ. Over the years, I have been faithful to that vow. I was recently in a prayer meeting with some dear pastor friends of mine when one or two of them began gossiping against Joyce Meyers. Had they first gone to Joyce with their filthy gossip? Of course not! But here they were, "Nyi, nyi, nyi, gossip, backbite, backstab" I stopped them in the middle of it and said, "Stop! In Jesus' Name! I did not come to this prayer meeting to hear or see my sister injured or insulted. If this continues, I am out of here." I challenge you in Jesus' Name to not allow back-biting or gossip take place in your presence. Bible says, "Rebuke not an elder, but GO TO HIM, and plead with him as a son to a father." "If your brother offends you, GO TO HIM." But the Bible NEVER says, "Go to someone else about this other person and blab and gossip your head off." If you have not first gone to the person about whom you are preparing to bite or stab in the back, then SHUT YOUR gossiping, slandering, filthy MOUTH!!!, or God Himself will severely punish you.

CONCLUSION

God has called us, and chosen us, and has commissioned us to be "co-creators", co-laborers, co-workers with Him!! These are only some of the means by which He expects us to do so:

- binding and loosing,

- using the weapons of our warfare that are mighty through God to the - - - tearing down of strong-holds,

- the prayer of agreement,

- speaking things into (or out of) existence.

- praying the Word

- prayers of faith

- rebuking others

IT'S YOUR MOVE

or

KINGDOM INTIATIVE

or

IF GOD WILLS IT,

WILL IT HAPPEN???

I was in a situation the other day where I wanted to make a good impression. Perhaps the whole city would open up to the ministry if I had made a good impression. It was the state capital and a large city. I wanted to make a good impression and to keep the good impression I had made. But I had to call a man of God on a destructive statement he had made. Very destructive, and yet, the whole crowd seemed to agree with him. Friend, let me tell you something. You can not be a man-pleaser and remain in the Kingdom of God. The fear of man brings a snare on every level - and in every place. Spiritual prostitution is the worst prostitution of all. It is that which compromises to gain, keep, or curry favor. If a man has a sell-out price, satan will come up with the silver.

I saw a political cartoon the other day in which a politician was posing for a picture, but was inadvertently standing beside a "for sale" sign. It reminded me of so many "would-be" but won't-be men of God-as long as they are for sale.

The destructive statement this gentleman made was: "Well, if God wills it, it will happen," and, "We'll be able to tell if it is the will of God by whether or not it happens."

Please let me explain why I believe this fatalistic thinking and acting, (or should we say lack of action) is so destructive! Look at the following Scriptural examples:

1. "Ask and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened. . . " Matt. 7:7-8 (KJ). Question: What will happen if we do not ask, and seek, or knock?

2. "Whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord will be saved" Rom. 10:13-15 (KJ).

Question: What will happen to those who do not call? "[God is] not willing that any should perish" n Pet. 3:9 (KJ). Does that mean everyone will be saved? no, No, No!'

3. "And how shall they hear without a preacher?" I've heard folks say of some ministries, "If God is in it, it will go." But the Word says, "How shall the preacher preach except he be sent?" Rom. 10:-15 (KJ). Sometimes we are at each other's mercy!

4. What would happen if the 'Godly ones in Ps. 149 did not exercise their privileges and did not "bind [the] kings with chains?" not "execute vengeance upon the heathen?" not "execute punishments upon the people? and not "execute upon them the judgment written?"

5. Jesus said, "From the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the Kingdom of Heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force. . . the most ardent zeal and intense exertion: Matt 11:12 (AMP). Question: Will the Kingdom be taken if men and women of the white hot zeal of the fiery intensity of the Lord of the Armies of the Universe don't take it??? .

6. Jesus said, "He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved" Matt. 24:13 (KJ). Question: What happens if we don't endure to the end???

7. In the next verse Jesus says something very important, (doesn't He always?) He says, "And this Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come!!" Matt. 24:14 (KJ). Question: Will the end come before this Gospel of the Kingdom is preached in all the world??? Come on, you lazy laggard, I curse to hell your insipidity, lethargy, passivity, and bondage! I prophesy the Mighty Lion of the Tribe of Judah to rise up within you and that you rise up from the dust, oh daughter of Zion, and shake yourself like a lion going forth to take a prey!! ! !

8. Jesus said, "Whatsoever ye shall bind . . . shall be bound, and whatsoever ye shall loose, shall be loosed. . . !!!" Matt.18:18 (KJ) But what if we don't bind??? And what if we don't loose??? Sweet, sweet sister of the Saviour, and my precious brother in the Lord, If you don't bind, it won't be bound; and if you don't loose, it won't be loosed!!! unless our Sweet and Precious Saviour someday, somewhere, somehow, sometime raises up someone to do what you were supposed to have done!!! The only problem is that "The night is coming when no man can work!" So we had better "Work the works of Him [that sends us] as long as it is [yet] day!!!" (John 9:4) Will you help us? We are willing to help you. That's only one reason why we wrote this book.

9. Jesus said, "Shall not God [also speedily]avenge His Own elect, which cry day and night unto Him. . . ?" Luke 18:7 (KJ). But what happens if we don't cry day and night? Will we be speedily avenged of our adversary?

10. "Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling" Ph. 2:12 (KJ). What if we don't?

Tell, me, precious theologian, what will happen if we don't use "the weapons of our warfare [that] are. . . mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds?" II Cor. 10:4 (KJ). [That's a big "10:4"]. What will happen if we don't "go into all the world" and obey the Great Commission? What if we don't "compel them to come in?" (Luke 14:23) If we don't "do the work of an evangelist?" If we don't "pray the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers?" (Matt. 9:38) If we don't pray that our flight won't be on the Sabbath or in winter time? (Matt. 24:20)

Thus saith the Lord: If we don't do it, either it won't get done, and Christ's return will be delayed, or He'll have to raise up someone else to do it, or maybe, just maybe, you will finally get with His program!!! Let's just hope to God it will be in time! How many of the dear ones have gone to hell because you and I haven't told them? How many sick are dead, or still suffering because of our passivity and disobedience? How many marriages have broken up because WE didn't share a better way with them? How many people have been murdered, mobbed, or mugged, maimed, or massacred because you and I didn't do our part in binding and loosing?

You may be objecting to this harassment, saying that I am trying to put you under condemnation. Dear one, are you willing for some good old-fashioned conviction??? I pray God Himself to mess with you and me, and mess with us until we are smack dab in the middle of the sweet, sweet, perfect will of God! !! Thus saith the Lord, "From this day forth, we are free to do the will of God. We are free to be led by the Holy Spirit." In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Please look at this! If you have received Christ as your life and believe that He is living His Life in you, and that you are seated on His throne in Him with the Father, and that He is living in you and that He has blessed you with everything in Him, then won't the Christ in you be exercising some aggressive initiative? Won't the zeal of the Lord of Hosts be demonstrated through you?

Over and over I hear people advise, prophesy, or pray, "Don't strive", "Don't be 'out of rest'", "Don't 'lean on the arm of flesh'". If I were satan, I would try to get people to be passive, and that's exactly what he's done! But God says, "Woe to those who are at ease in Zion!" (Amos 6:1). "Cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood." (Jeremiah 48:10b) Imagine telling Christ to not be "out of rest", etc., when He was sweating great drops of blood in the Garden, or when He was driving the money changers out of the temple, or when He was seeking the Father's face with strong crying and tears!!! Right doctrine is False doctrine when wrongly applied, and the Church of Jesus Christ needs to wake up!!! We prophesy to the sleeping giant of the church of Jesus Christ to wakeup!!!

Then the man of whom I spoke at the beginning earlier advised me, "Don't lean of the arm of flesh." I told him, "Mister, I'll tell you what's of the flesh: laziness, passivity, lack of love, apathy, lethargy, insipidity, lassitude, lack of obedience. Fiddle faddling while the world burns, or letting peop1e go to hell forever, and live in hell in the meantime, is of the flesh, if we could have rescued them."

The people that say, "Don't strive", should read scriptures like:

1. Luke 13:24, "Strive to enter in at the straight gate"(KJ)

2. Rom. 15:30, "Strive. . . with me in your prayers." (KJ)

3. Rom. 15:20, "So have I strived to preach."(KJ)

4. Phil. 1:27, "With one mind, striving for the faith." (KJ)

5. Col. 1:29, "Striving according to His working." (KJ)

6. Heb. 12:4, "Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin."

Jesus said, "And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time the Kingdom of Heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force [as a precious prize]-a share in the Heavenly Kingdom is sought for with the most ardent zeal and intense exertion!" Matt.11:12 (AMP).

Oh how the Christ within us wants to accomplish His works in the earth! But there exists a real problem in the Church! You see, we have been passively waiting for God to do what He has been waiting for us to do-have been asking Him to do what He's told us to do. But now the time has come when God's people shall respond to the call of God! The prophecy of Isaiah 59:16-19 comes true, "Rise up oh Daughter of Zion from the dust; shake thyself and wrap thyself with zeal as a cloak; go forth with the Spirit of the Mighty Lion of the tribe of Judah, to take a prey, to see God's Kingdom come, God's will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Having clothed thyself with the razor sharp, white hot, fiery zeal of the Lord of the Armies of the Universe. For from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, but now comes forth those of 'the most ardent zeal and intense exertion' of the Spirit of the Lord to Make it Happen!!!"

Picture Christ Himself living within you, wanting, waiting to do what He wants to do in and through you, while you are praying to a long distance-God-in-heaven to do sovereignly for you what He already waits to do in and through you! Remember that Scripture, "But the righteousness based on faith speaks thus, 'Do not say in your heart, "who will ascend into Heaven?" (that is to bring Christ down), or "who will descend into the Abyss?" , (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? 'The word [rhema] is near you, in your mouth and in your heart' " Rom. 10:6-8. Jesus is the Word - He is in you aaaas your Life! Amen.

Remember what we said about Christ Himself being our Life? Well, this is the short cut to the fulfillment of the Will of God!: "You are not sufficient of yourself so as to think anything of yourself, but your sufficiency is of God, who makes YOU an able minister of the covenant!!!" (ll Cor. 3:5, 6 KJ).

These next truths will help you put wings and wheels on the fulfillment of the will of God in your life!!! Pray this prayer, now.

Dear Heavenly Father, In Jesus' Name we come to You. We come boldly, humbly into Your Throne Room to stay forever, and to find help in this time of need. We deeply repent of the dead works that clutter our lives, and we intensely pursue the Leading of the Lamb of God wherever. We would be those Spirit led sons of God. We volunteer to be your Joels' Army soldiers of the Lord, who hear Your voice and do Your will now and forevermore, Amen.

We reckon the old life to be completely dead, and embrace You as our Life. We embrace Your discipline as our discipline, and by Thy grace shall do those Living Works and speak those creative words. We believe Thee, receive Thee to be now all You are, in us!!! Now and forever more, Amen.

JOHN ROY BOHLEN'S FASTING JOURNAL

 

DISCLAIMER:  This journal is not an attempt to "practice medicine without a license".   I am merely sharing my own story, without an attempt to give medical advice to others.  Every 40 day fast I have ever experienced has been with medical check ups and/or limited supervision.  I believe that I have had a complete medical check-up with every fast.  This is one reason I never detected my diabetes, because everything normalized when I fasted, and I neglected to have checkups when I was not fasting and so, did not have an accurate picture of how my body was functioning under normal conditions.  We recommend that if you do fast, you do so with "medical supervision" and consultation.  The problem here is that almost NO DOCTORS know, have read about, have had experience with fasting, and thus, are not in a very good position to properly advise or supervise.  However, they are in a position to monitor the body's condition and response, as to blood pressure, triglycerides, blood sugar, kidney and liver function, etc.

 

Before fasting, or, at least, at the beginning of the fast, we recommend the following books:
