A Summary of: The Reasonings of God (Part 1)

God calls out to us to Reason with Him. To learn His Counsel in Order have a Relationship with Him. He calls us to learn His Ways and His Thoughts so that we can spend time with Him without fear, without nonsense, without lies, and in a state of genuine honor and in an authentic grace filled place.

God is calling us everyday to walk with Him. HIs Voice and His Word go out to all who will receive Him to experience His supernatural Grace, Faith, Favor, Forgiveness, Cleansing, Healing, Love and Blameless Perfection that keeps us free from all Lies, Deceptions, False Idolatry, and Fruitless Living.

By Walking with God, we will exhibit a quality of Life far beyond anything anyone else can possibly imagine or hope to give us. God himself promises us to be Our Guide, Our Counselor, Our Wisdom, Our Strength, Our Hope, Our Permanent and Faithful Friend, and Our Eternal Father so that we will no longer be orphans, no longer be outcasts, but we will be permanently protected, connected, accepted, cherished, and adored forever beginning right now and into eternity, and we will be able to share that experience with others who will receive the same gifts we have received, and they will become our eternal partners in his Kingdom.

(Mark this Down: The analogy used to describe our eternal relationships in Christ, is the Marriage Covenant as it is designed by God to be pure, holy, ever lasting, sacrificial, built upon the permanent foundation of the Blood Covenant. This is the most intimate, most demanding, yet most rewarding and most satisfying and fulfilling relationship a man or woman can have on this planet (when done right).*  God uses the Marriage Covenant as the Picture He chooses that most closely relates to our lives in His Eternal Kingdom (and how our lives should reflect that very nature and that very virtue, even here on Earth, as we pray, “Thy Kingdom Come. Thy Will be Done. On Earth as it is in Heaven.” All of that is up to us to perceive and pursue!

Acts 4:32-33 (KJV) 32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common [just like a marriage covenant]. 33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

Such was the quality of depth and service invested into every relationship in the Early Church in the Book of Acts. 

This Marriage Covenant (mode of heavenly Relationship) is the very model we are called into with every other true believers in Christ. The fact is, we will be intimate with every single blood bought servant of Christ. The early church understood this back  in the Book of Acts, they defended, served, labored, and gave of themselves sacrificially–so that the Whole Body of Christ was well taken care of. This Marriage Paradigm for every relationship … we cannot comprehend in our present state. That is part of the reason we need to get busy learning, obeying, and fulfilling God’s Word in our Lives, so that on the Day of the Wedding we will actually be rejoicing, (in stead of weeping and gnashing our teeth), because we actually, did take God’s Word seriously, when we had the chance. If we really don’t prepare ourselves for the most Important of our lives, as God has commanded us, and we were not invited into the celebration, but were locked out (like the foolish virgins, who were not prepared): How could we not weep and gnash our teeth? I can hardly imagine the pain and anguish that many will experience (apparently: Billions and billions of people will not be ready). Why?  Because they are clearly not taking God’s Word, God’s Commands, and God’s Gospel seriously today: How will they be prepared tomorrow?   

A Simple a Lack of Diligent Attention to what is most important now, may reflect very poorly on our faith on the Most Important Day of Our lives. When we will take our final exit exam, and we get to see if we pass and receive the Words from the Father:  “Well done, my good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” If we miss the above glorious invitation, we will likely see this below sequence play out.

Matthew 7:21-23 (KJV)
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? [Did you know that Judas Iscariot most assuredly (probably) cast out devils, healed the sick, and did many wonderful works, but on the day it mattered most, he caved into the Devil’s plan and became the devil’s tool, and Jesus said of him, “it would have been better that he was never born.] 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.


God clearly understands there are a number of roadblocks, stumbling blocks, and difficult challenges to Overcome, in order to have an authentic and mutually powerful relationship with the LORD God Almighty, the King of the Universe, The Creator and Owner of All Creation, but He lays these problems out one by one, and then he shows you how to overcome each and every obstacle that stands in your way, which blocks your path to His Heart, His Mind, His Life, and His Love. He Himself has provided for every need you will experience, and already has the solution to every problem you will face.

1.   The first issue to Overcome—Your Sin Nature: (Natural Rebellion to God vs. the Inner Life of Obedience to God)
          God’s first focus is getting your sins washed white as snow. Why? Because Guilt, Shame, Condemnation, and Terrible Judgments stand between you and God, and these need to be removed. Without that happening you won’t be able to comprehend, nor care about God’s thoughts towards you, nor be able to receive the Commands of God that are designed to Protect you, Heal you, and Fill you with the Knowledge and Wholeness of God, and break the power of Lies, Deception, Evil, and Darkness over your life. Sin is the Great Wall that stands between you and God. [Isaiah 59:1-4 (KJV)]
          Mark this down: Your sin has separated you from God. God wants to take care if it, but he won’t do it without your full and complete attention, freewill, and ultimate participation. Your sins … He has taken on as His Problem. What many don’t realize, nor care to realize, is: How Great a Price He Bore to Carry your sins away. In fact, it is the greatest price, that any person has ever born, a proved to others how serious his is about His Love for them. (John 3:16)

2.   The second issue to Overcome—Your Hard Heart: (The Hardened Heart vs. The Tender Heart)
           In order for you to receive anything from God, you must understand that it will be impossible for that to happen due to the hardness of your hard. The harder your heart is, the less you will be able to receive from God. Darkness, Deception, and Ignorance cannot be overcome with a Hard Heart. [John 12:35-43] You will absolutely need to receive a tender heart, and a contrite spirit from God before you can take any important step forward into having an authentic relationship with God.

3.   The third issue to overcome—Your Prideful Mind: (The Prideful Mind vs. The Peaceful {teachable} Mind)
           This could be called your “know it all” attitude. The mind filled with itself, has little room for anything else. The mind and heart work together to block God, or invite God’s Holy Word into your Life. It is through His Word that you gain the Knowledge of God, learn the Commandments of God. Through HUMBLE Submission you will gain all good things, but through Pride you will lose them all. Pride was the downfall of Satan. He had everything, and lost it all, due to Pride. And His Pride has infected the entire human race (Not to mention 1/3 of the angels) with the same carnal  wicked instinct to raise up in Pride against God. [Isaiah 14:12-15]

4.   The fourth issue to overcome—Your Chosen Behavior: (Conviction vs. Condemnation)
           Live by Conviction, instead of Condemnation. 
 The Laws of God are designed for your perfect protection, both now, and into eternity. Every one is righteous, trustworthy, and based on creating God’s Blessing for Everyone for All of time. When we stop, listen, and obey God’s Commands (conviction–is the fruit), we are blessed, strengthened, enlightened, empowered, and protected, and fully protecting others ALL THE TIME. When we run over the line, we break God’s commands (condemnation–is the fruit) we are cursed, weakened, darkened, diminished, defiled, and unprotected. We then have to deal with shame, guilt, embarrassmentdisgrace, dishonor, discredit, degradation (prison), rejections, restrictions, debt, loss of family, broken relationships, excuses, and the inevitable multitude of self justifications. We then become the fools and food of devils, who will eat our lunch every day unto eternity. Our fruit will be evident and obvious to all with understanding—by the words of our mouth, the meditations of our mind, the attitude of our heart, these will produce the actions, behaviors, habits, and addictions we live by. And they will tell a story that does not lie. Thankfully, God has provided His Way of Escape, “The Blood Covenant” for those who have crossed the line and have come to their senses, and really want to repent, and do the Will of God from the heart.

5.  The fifth issue to overcome—Your False Fellowship: (Worldly vs. Heavenly directed friendships)
          “Love not the World…” [1 John 2:15-17].  No matter how good your intentions are, your beliefs are, your intellectual doctrines are, if you mix them with false and worldly fellowship, you will be corrupted. “Be not unequally yoked …” [2 Corinthians 6:14-18] You will be influenced by those you honor and esteem with your time, heart, soul, and life.
          In the Way of God, Your first priority will be to Build all your relationships upon a deep foundation in Christ (or in the way of yourself, upon the foundation of selfishness). There is little middle ground. Either you want yourself and your friends saved, delivered, set free from Sin, Darkness, Evil, Worldliness, and you will take the message in hand, to get the job done, and you will speak the Word of Life, and Correction, Freedom, and Salvation to them, or you won’t. Then you will either be accepted and treasured (by God and those who will receive you and will follow Him), or you will be despised and rejected (by the Devil and those who will continue to follow him). The stakes are high in this race for eternal life, but the rewards are even higher, beyond anything you can think or imagine.

6. The sixth issue to overcome—Your False Religion: (Spirit Led vs. Man Led)
          On this subject you will either have good discernment, or you won’t. Again, there is little middle ground. Unfortunately, the majority has little good discernment. [I can say this because I have experienced this and have paid the price for it.] Remember, the stakes are high, and our enemy is unmatched in cleverness to deceive. He is powerful, resourceful, well funded, ingeniously unscrupulous, and completely devoted to your destruction. He will use any and all means at his disposal to complete his final work, the theft, death, and destruction of the lives of multitudes (billions) of men (who walk in his ways following his path and final destination), to suffer with him for eternity.
          I guess: “Misery loves company.” To fulfill his aim, Satan himself has created false religions, even false churches, that preach from a false Bible, from a false Pulpit, preaching a fake Gospel, creating a fake (worldly) “feel good” Worship service, a false Fellowship, and a false Salvation.
          Those in the world look at the modern day church, and see the hypocrisy, the laziness, the double-mindedness, the complacency, the corruption, the greed, the sexual immorality, the duplicity, the lack of conviction, lack of dedication, lack of intellectual wisdom, lack of ethical living (the greediness and self exaltation), and they mock and scoff, and deride the modern church.  Who can blame them? Who is not tempted to join with them in their condemnation of “everything Christian”?  Only those who do not have “a pierced heart” nor a “humble mind.” That is the plan of the enemy. He wants to harden the heart of every unbeliever and not see the distinction to between the dead and self-centered worldly church, and the alive and God-centered Living Church of the Eternal God of Heaven.
           Those who have received the true seed of the Word of God, can clearly see the difference between the compromised dead church, and the uncorrupted Living Church of the Living God. The two churches are as different as night and day. One is run like a business (decisions are made by who gets the most money). The other is run like a family that is seeking to rescue the lost (decisions are made by how God will gain the greatest glory in His Family and Community).
           God’s beautiful and glorious Bride (the righteous Church) has washed her garments making them white as snow. She has prepared herself for the Marriage Covenant and her eternal Heavenly birthed relationship with “The Lamb of God.”
           The Early Church was Held in High Esteem, though people were afraid to join it, because their standards of faith and obedience to the Spirit of God were were exceptionally high, compared to the modern church. It was a fearful thing to join the Church of the Holy Living God, which was directed and empowered by the Spirit of God. (See Acts 5:17).
           These things are generally beyond the understanding of average sinner (the mocker on the street), as well as, beyond the average church goer (who believes being a Christian means going to church). Both of these types of people are are victims of a false and corrupt system of understanding of the One who wants you to sit down and reason with Him. Neither one knows how to listen to and learn God’s Word directly from Him (John 10:1-6), and then is empowered by the Spirit of God to go and do the will of the Father, just as Jesus did, his disciples did, and their disciples did, and their disciples did (John 10:14-16)–becoming doers of the Word of God, following his Voice, and doing His Will (John 10:27). That is the model of True Fellowship in Christ.
           Please note: Those who listen to men, live completely different lives than those who listen to God. And you should immediately be able to tell the difference. You can tell a tree by its fruit. The fruit it produces is the proof of what kind of tree it is.

7.  The seventh issue to overcome—Your Enemy Strongholds: (Destroy them or Submit to them)
          This is no small subject. There are a multitude of clever ways the enemy has built up strongholds in the life of every person on the earth, no one is exempt.  Many of these strongholds are designed to shape and direct a child’s life at a very early young age. The seeds planted in infancy will bear their fruit, throughout their lives, especially during adolescence, and young adulthood.
          “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” ~Vladimir Lenin  
What and whom are the teachers of our children? And what are they learning from them? In Word and Deed? Children are designed to learn by example. They are like sponges absorbing everything in the environment around them. They mimic and duplicate the Living Examples in front of them. If they only have bad examples, and are fed ungodly beliefs, shown ungodly behaviors, and live by ungodly rules, see and participate in ungodly addictions: What kind of adults do you expect them to become?
          When children are raised on the same Hollywood Garbage their parents were raised on, when they listen to the same and even more immoral music, honor the same immoral Sports Heroes, watch the same and even more immoral and evil movies, and video games, and are taught even more perverted evil in schools, and are even less able to read, write and decipher than their parents were: What is Going to Happen to the Society in which they Live?
          Many do not see the many traps, snares, pits, webs of lies, and layers upon layers of false information, pure fabrications, outright lying science, the depth of the corrupt political, educational, financial/Business, and entertainment models that are driven by a perverse media driven mindset of the world, advancing the Precepts of the Ruler of this Present Darkness: These strongholds of darkness have been designed by dark forces to corrupt whole generations of children, as it is today worldwide. Those who have eyes to see can respond accordingly, by hearing and following the Voice of the Good Shepherd. But those who don’t see him, who don’t hear his voice, and don’t follow his lead, they are like cattle being led away to the dark spiritual death and slaughter awaiting them. They are ignorant of the road they travel, because if they were aware they would exit that road immediately. But because they remain ignorant, they continue down that road and approve or accept the evils happening all around them as only natural. This is a sign that destruction is near. 

          Strongholds that the enemy has built infiltrate the lives of individuals (ex. Cain), families (ex. King David), community groups (LGBTQ) , cities and nations (ex. Sodom and Gomorrah). 
          The sooner we identify Satan’s demonic strongholds (and stop agreeing with them, and accepting them) the quicker we can prepare ourselves to fight against them and bring them down [2 Corinthians 10:4]. The only other alternative is to submit to the stronghold and submit to the strongman and become one of his captives and slaves, and/or allow him to enslave all of those around us, without a fight. This is exactly what a true believer with the true knowledge of God and the clear Voice of God directing him simply cannot do. He cannot submit to the strongman, nor participate in the fellowship of the world, nor allow the worldly evils to go unchallenged in his life, nor in the lives of those around him. Due to his blood bought relationship with Christ, the obedient, devoted, dedicated, disciplined, and diligent disciple of Christ, must “Fight the Good Fight.”

1 Timothy 6:11-12 (KJV)
11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things [lust, greed, fame, and selfishness]; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. 12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

Mark this Down: If a believer or congregation of believers is living underneath the influence of a demonic stronghold they and their fellow believers will be stunted in their growth. If they are living underneath the influence of several demonic strongholds they will not be likely to produce much good fruit (the kind of Fruit God the Father is looking for), and instead, they will likely and predictably produce much evil fruit. You can tell a tree by the fruit it produces–that applies to both individuals and to groups of believers whom claim to be following Christ. 

  • If their claim is legitimate, they will be producing copious amount of purely glorious heavenly fruit.
  • If their claim is compromised, they may produce some fruit, but often the fruit is bad, and rotten, not fit for eating. In such cases, those believers place themselves in a perilous position before The Judge (and Fruit Inspector) of all of Creation.

I am not getting this perception from my own mind. It comes from the Scriptures, The Parables, the teachings, and warnings of Jesus. He cares too much about the sheep being lost not to warn them when they are being influenced by demonic strongholds, instead of tearing down those strongholds, and destroying the works of the devil. This is the work of God that he is handed down to us to do. We are now his representatives here on earth. He has left this earth, but he did not leave us defenseless. He left us his testimony, and his power, and his authority, to do his works.

I believe if you are truly following the Savior of the World and walking in his footsteps, you will become a well trained, soldier in his heavenly army and you will make it your daily goal to destroy the works of the devil everywhere you see them all around you.

If you have had your sins made white as snow; if you have entered into the Kingdom of God: if you have become a covenant partner in the work and labor in the great harvest of God; if you have laid down your own agenda, and have taken up your cross to Follow Christ; doing the works of Christ; if you have been born again by the power of God; if you have received a new Mind, a new Spirit, and have become a New Man, made into the likeness, character, nature, image, and passion of Christ; if you have received the call to preach the Gospel and Make disciples, who in turn can also called preach the Gospel and Make Disciples, bearing much eternal Fruit: You don’t need to be reading this article, because you are already doing the Will of God from a pure Heart, a clean Mind, and a glorious Spirit.

But if you haven’t fully and completely and passionately walked out all of the above, then you are probably like me, struggling to get your life centered and founded completely upon the Rock that is Christ. I am still dumping my excess baggage so I can travel light and be instant in season. I do believe a time of preparation is in store for me (right now) and like many others, I am sharpening my sword, polishing my shield, fitting my breast plate, and getting ready to do battle, with no holds barred. My soul is awakening and my heart is gaining access to the King. I know it, by the changes in my life, in my heart, mind, soul, and spirit. I am seeing things more clearly in the Word, and I am starting to build fellowship with other like minded believers who want to be obedient to the King of Heaven, who want to be seen by God, and live in the reality of God as:   1) Wise Virgins (Matthew 25:1-13);    2) Fruitful Vine Branches (John 15:1-11);   3) Wise Stewards (Matthew 25:14-30);   4) Heavenly Blessed Sheep (as opposed to cursed goats, Matthew 25:31-46);  5) Wearing White Wedding Clothes at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb (Matthew 22:11-14);   6) Being Full of Faith (John 14:12);    7) To Be Good Soil,  all with the purpose of bearing some 100, some 60, and some 30 fold fruit that was sown into me (Matthew 13:23)


The Ministry of the Individual Believer

God’s Simple Plan for Every Single Believer in a nutshell.

The seed or word empowered by the Voice and Spirit of God can and will teach a man:

  1. How to Love God.
  2. How to love his neighbor.
  3. How to care for, nurture, and love his family.
  4. How to give generously.
  5. How to forgive those who wrong him.
  6. How to love his enemy (which otherwise would be impossible to do without the power in the Love provided in the Word and Spirit of God).
  7. How to preach the gospel.
  8. How to make disciples.
  9. How to overcome the Evil One,
  10. How to destroy the devil’s works,
  11. How to bind the strongman,
  12. How to plunder his house,
  13. How to put on the full armor of God, 
  14. How to pull down ENEMY strongholds with God’s spiritual armory of weapons.
  15. How to assault the Gates of Hell, and defeat them. (In other words, How to Be Like Jesus.)

By doing the above every individual will become an earnest and fruitful laborer in God’s House, and Kingdom.



The ministry of the Church

  1. Preach the Gospel
  2. Make disciples
  3. Raise up leaders
  4. Send out Missionaries 
    • Repeat!

By doing the above every church will become earnest and fruitful in fulfilling her mission, to take the Gospel to the Nations, and to not neglect her duty to persevere and occupy until he returns. Every church should be knee deep in doing the work of the Kingdom. It is time to stop building our own ditzy little fiefdoms, and to start building God’s Glorious and Radiant Kingdom.


The importance of this overall message: The Reasonings of God (Part 1), is monumental! The stakes are high. The Rewards are Even Higher still. But the rewards only come to those who will seek them. Labor to get them. Serve selflessly, diligently, and faithfully, even as a man would walk in the footsteps of Jesus. The Bar is High. No doubt about it. He is the Standard. He is the measure we are to measure ourselves by. If we fall short, that should energize us to be even that more diligent and that more devoted, and that more dedicated, so that we will let our lamps shine brightly. God’s Calling is beyond human comprehension. It can only happen through heavenly intervention. And even then, many will fall away. But once we are grounded in the Truth, of God’s Word, we greatly increase our odds of success, and of our continual growth, which is the Expectation of Every Wise Father to his blessed and faithfully trained wise children.

Now having seen how long the summary (introduction) is … you might get an idea of how long the full article is. Yes. This article is long. Yes. It needs to be evaluated with careful consideration. No. It is not all light and fun reading. In fact, I would consider it the opposite. In fact, it will more likely be painful than pleasant. Like a dentist drilling out the awful decay in a tooth, so that he can save that tooth.

This is not an article that will give you a quick fix. A feel good moment. A happy feeling. No. This article is a searching article.  It is one to stir up a desire to not follow the crowd, not go the way of the world, not become a fake convert, not miss the mark, not to end up like the five foolish virgins (Matthew 25:1). Which is the most tragic ending I think I can recall in all of the whole of scripture. 

If you seriously and earnestly want to avoid the tragedy of the 5 Foolish Virgins, then I conscientiously implore thee to read the whole story from beginning to end, The Reasonings of God, (Part 1). I also advise you to take your time. Enjoy the Journey. Seek to hear and receive both God’s Encouragements, and his Strict Warnings. We need both to overcome the enemy’s plan for our death.




* 1).  When done wrong …  when not based on an eternal foundation that two individuals have agreed to, and have prepared themselves  for, and have been preparing for, their entire lifetimes, if this is not to precursor to an righteous marriage, but rather, the marriage is a built on a foundation of vanity, of selfishness, of convenience, and the character of the marriage is based immaturity, idolatry, ignorance, immorality, as well as, self-centered egotistical pride and manipulation. Then such a marriage outside the God Ordained Marriage Covenant can be one of the most hellish nightmares a person can experience.
