We're Just Walking with the King


Philippians‬ ‭4:19
“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

1. All our needs are supplied!
Everything that we need is found in the riches of His glory!
Our jobs and the work of our own hands is NOT our source of supply! Do not be misled!! The Lord opens doors and we walk through them. We do everything in our daily lives as an act of worship to Him. We are faithful with all that He has given to us.
Colossians‬ ‭3:23‬ “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,”

2. All our needs are supplied in the riches of His glory!
Just as the Lord provided for the children of Israel in the wilderness by His glory, providing for them water from a rock (Exodus 17:1-7), manna from heaven (Exodus 16:1-8), fire to keep them warm at night and a cloud of His glory by day to guide them (Exodus 13:20-22), EVEN SO NOW does the Lord provide all of our needs according to His riches in glory!

3. All our needs are supplied in the riches of His glory BY CHRIST JESUS!
We enter into a lifetime of divine supply in the glory of God BY Christ Jesus! He has purchased for us a divine entrance into the very family of God; bone of His bone, flesh of His flesh, born of the very seed of God Himself.
Ephesians‬ ‭5:30‬ “For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.”
‭‭I Peter‬ ‭1:23 “having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,”
Romans‬ ‭8:15‬ “For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”
Man boasts in his wealth, in his accomplishments, in their stock piles of wealth, but we are direct descendants of the wealthiest family in all the universe!
The Lord provides for the birds of the air and we are of far greater value than they! (Matthew 6:26)
We who have been justified BY Christ Jesus shall LIVE, continue on in life, live every day, focusing our hearts on this one thing... to Live by FAITH!
Romans‬ ‭1:17‬ “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

Matthew‬ ‭6:24-34‬
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

4. Don't even think about our needs! Leave that to the Gentiles! But rather do this instead: seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness!
By doing this all the things we need WILL BE ADDED TO US! (Matthew 6:33)
What is worry anyways? Fear. And what is fear? It is the enemy of faith. It is a seed planted in our minds by the devil of something that DOESN'T EVEN EXIST! It's not real! Fear is simply False Evidence Appearing Real. Worry doesn't bring anything to us, it only clouds our faith (Matthew 6:27).
‭‭II Corinthians‬ ‭10:4-5 “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,”
The Lord has not given us a spirit of fear. He's divinely supplied to us power, love and a sound mind!
2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

-->This is life in Christ: we are simply walking with the King.<--
Seeking first His kingdom and His righteousness (Matthew 6:33-34)
All of our needs and our families needs divinely supplied by His riches in glory (Phil. 4:19)
Going into all the world proclaiming liberty to the captives, making disciples in all nations (Mark 16:15-18)

Christ In You...Live It!

It's interesting to me how a people react to a demonstration of heavenly power or authority in Christ. Some are freaked out and their minds reject it. Some are offended. Some are encouraged. Etc etc.

Well, I am a regular guy, nothing special about me. I have flaws, I have a relationship with the Lord, we are growing together, the Lord and I. But the fact that I'm a mere man with struggles and challenges like everyone else does not mean that I am to leave the preaching, the bold faith, the loving on humanity, or stepping out in faith to believe God for big things to someone else lol.

CHRIST IN ME, the hope of Glory! (Colossians 1:27)

Bottom line, if it's in the bible, I believe it. Just because things that we read in the bible are not main stream or "normal" in our society doesn't mean they weren't originally intended to be so (i.e. Speaking in tongues, miracle healings, being able to have joy in any circumstance, biblical prosperity, etc, etc)

Anyways, if 1 person who reads this is encouraged to take yourself out of the equation and LET GOD BE GOD in your life, then, this was a success.

Do you have sin in your life? Do you struggle with certain areas of your life? Well, go your way and SIN NO MORE, resolve in your heart to live PERFECT, of course. But don't stop laying hands on the sick! Don't stop pouring your heart out to the Lord! Don't stop loving on people! Don't stop preaching the word of God! The Lord uses people my friends, and guess what, "all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23) :-)

The Lord died so that we could live SIN FREE by the power of the Holy Spirit, but a life waiting until you feel your perfect and ready to step out will end up being a wasted life... Be Blessed!

Let's Be Honest...

Psalms‬ ‭51‬:‭6,
"Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts..."

Laymens translation: The Lord desires that we be honest with ourselves and with Him! He desires TRUTH within us!

***Let us accept this once and for all: The Lord knows the areas in our hearts and lives with which we struggle.***

He knows what is going on in our hearts before we confess it to Him. Pure relationship with God understands this vital fact and it does not ignore this elephant in the room! It does not seek to hide as Adam & Eve did in the garden. A pure heart before the Lord cries out to the Lord that the areas with which we struggle be confessed to Him and furthermore, that the areas deep down that only the Lord can reveal be made known to us SO THAT we can CHANGE and continue on in this glorious maturation process, which is a walk with the Lord.

We can see this as we continue reading Psalm 51,

Verses 7 & 10-13:
"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow...Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee!"

Oh what a glorious revelation this is to understand that our God desires that we first be honest with ourself and with God about our own hearts and lives. From this place of understanding we can then begin to mature and transform from glory to glory in this amazing walk with the Lord (Romans 12:2, 2 Corinthians 3:18).

Pour out your heart before the Lord and watch as His loving embrace carries you to realms of maturity that you never new existed!!

Psalms‬ ‭62‬:‭8‬ KJV
"Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us!"

We love you!

Spiritual Appetite

Spiritual appetite: if we spend the majority of our week neglecting our daily bread (Word, prayer, fellowship with the Lord, fellowship with a community of believers, etc.) it's inevitable that our hunger for His presence will diminish. We will begin to no longer crave the things of the Spirit but rather crave the things of this world. We will make excuses why we're not running after God. 

Hunger MUST be cultivated! It doesn't grow on trees lol. We must crucify our flesh daily and do those things that are spiritually profitable if we are serious about maturing in Christ and walking in all He has for us!

Where is your hunger at?
Do you long for G.O.D. or for H.B.O.?

Like the great preacher once said, "Worldliness dulls your affections for God." - Smith Wigglesworth

Colossians 3:1-3 NKJV
If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 

Love you all!

Faith Goggles

To psychoanalyze another human being, to believe that we know what they're thinking and how they're feeling and why they make the decisions that they make based on what we think their experiences have been, is human nature.  

The problem with this is that no human being really knows how to psychoanalyze another. Outside of the word of knowledge we are clueless lol.  

***The challenge, and simultaneously the mandate from the Lord, is to see our fellow believers in the finished work of the Cross. To see them fully matured and walking in the full anointing that God has planned and purposed for their life.  

To see life through this perspective makes everything easier: forgiving is easy when you look through the eyes of love. Mercy to those who seemingly don't deserve mercy becomes easy when you look through the eyes of love.  

Exercise this, I guarantee it will change your life.  

***Ephesians 1:3, Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath (past tense) blessed us with ALL spiritual blessings in heavenly blessings in spiritual places.

No One Ever Hears the Back Door

I am absolutely convinced that there is a massive group of hungry believers that crave the holiness, live free from sin message. I refuse to believe that people leave churches because the message is too raw.  

***People leave churches because of the disconnect, because of no personal relationships. Because they are neglected and not brought into "the family". PERIOD!  
God designed human beings to be on fire in the fire of his presence. So the notion that people leave churches because they can't handle the message does not work for me. If there were relationships with the members of that church going on then people would remain there and adjust to the message!  

Take a moment and perform this exercise: Think of the members within your church whom you have watched change and grow from glory to glory throughout the years. Think of how they have matured year-over-year. Now with these specific members in your mind think of if they are a part of an actual family of friends within that church or are they pretty much loners? I would be willing to bet anything that the members that stay throughout the years stay because they are a part of that body on a practical level, and thus being in the meetings throughout the years has caused them to grow.  

Saints, it's time for "the family" to start acting like one!  

***The approach of "Everyone else's problems are everyone else's problems" & "Im living in this place of glory. You can come join me here if you want to but I'm not coming to you" is a cancer in the growth of the local church.  

Galatians 6:1-2 KJV Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.  

Love you all,

Seclusion is Delusion

There exists a spectrum of pride. On one end of this spectrum there is the proud, haughty, arrogant and conceaded manifestation of pride. It boasts in how much better it is than everyone else. It's only agenda is to proclaim how it stands alone, so much better than others.

On the opposite end of this spectrum there is the sorrowful, fearful, pouty, insecure, the "oh poor me" manifestation of pride. It wallows in demonic thoughts that insists that it is so much worse off than everyone else. It craves that everyone feel sorrow for it as it mopes about feeling as if no one else in the world knows how they feel. It's only agenda is to proclaim how it stands alone, so much worse than others.

No matter what form pride manifests in a person it's common characteristic remains the same: seclusion. This central characteristic to this demonic spirit is completely opposite of heavens counterpart, humility. Humility always seeks to be numbered among the congregation. Humility always seeks to give recognition and praise to the Lord rather than itself; it desires that He alone gets the glory. Humility's only agenda is to proclaim how Jesus Christ stands alone, the only one truly worthy of honor and recognition.

Remembering this simple truth will revolutionize the way we deal with pride in our own lives when it tries to propogate it's demonic influence on us. Seclusion is demonic, but humility, love and the mind of Christ seek to be continually surrounded by a company of saints who all give the glory and honor to Christ Jesus.

Be Blessed,
Joel David Beauchamp
