Your Idea Vs. God's Purpose

  1. 1. Your Idea Vs. God’s Purpose “Sometimes people feel like the standard of God is "too high" or "too hard" to reach and sometimes we feel like giving up.” Why does it have to be so hard to be holy? “The first thing that you have to learn to be in Christianity that most people were never taught is that you have to be holy.” “Lord, if you want me to be holy, why don’t you just remove every trace of sin from me right now?” The reason why God can’t is because you are caught between something. A lot of you want to let go of your sin, and your mind and you want God to just let it go. But He can’t because you are caught between two things: you’re caught between "already happened" and "not yet happened.“ “You already know that your issues are gone, but God said, "Not yet."” “We are already saved, forgiven, and cleansed from sin, but we are not yet living in a heaven state, so we have a responsibility to our "already" because of "not yet". You are still accountable to "not yet" because it "already" happened. You were already saved when you were out their sinning but God said, "Not yet." If God put your "not yet" in your "already" He would have aborted some things.”
  2. 2. Because we have an important work to do (which through our example) others will get to God... “Holiness is our original and true purpose in this life.” “A lot of us do not associate holiness with perfection. When people start saying, "I’m not perfect", holiness is your perfection, because that’s the highest you can go. When you tell someone, “I am not perfect”, that means you are not at a level of holiness that you should be. When you do arrive to the place, you are perfect because He is perfect.” “You become perfect by being holy which perfects our way of living.” Two definite things you must know about God... “God is love and God is holy. Without these two things you might as well close the bible. This means that wherever God is, His love is there and it becomes holy. If God is dwelling in you, you must become a holy ground because your ultimate holy place is "not yet". This is why He is keeping you holy, because you are "not yet".” “Every time we sin, we make it easier to keep on sinning and all of these things are keeping you out the real of holiness. How? Continual sin reinforces your habits and then what reinforces your habits creates patterns.
  3. 3. By being holy, sin will still try to operate in your body, but we have a responsibility because we are "not yet" as Christians able to yield and cooperate with the Holy Spirit.” The problem when we try to understand holiness is that we try to create it ourselves... “Self-strength gives birth to self-inventions, which gives birth to self-intervention which makes you self-righteous instead of holy.” Am I holy or self-righteous? What do some people think holiness is? “Some people believe that if they isolate themselves it will make them closer to God. But there is a difference between isolation and forsaking because some people you have to forsake for the sake of the gospel.” “Some people believe that true spirituality is found by living up to their own laws and faith.” “Some people believe that being holy means to look good. They think they can look and drive how they want to without it having anything to do with how they live. People like this think that holiness is God’s responsibility - not theirs.” “Some people think holiness comes through an emotional experience like
  4. 4. shouting or screaming. They think that their holiness is on a higher playing field.” “Some people try so hard to be holy that they fail every time.” So how do we obtain holiness? “The way to be holy is to "understand" that you are holy.” “Holiness is understanding that you are holy. If you don’t, you will never understand that He is a Holy Spirit inside of you. Stop trying to be holy and just understand that you are. There is nothing you can do to obtain this. You don’t have to be it, just understand it when it shows up.” When you understand your name, you answer to it. When you understand that you’re holy, you will be it.” “Once you understand holiness and not try to be holy, then holiness becomes a matter of the heart. It doesn't make sense to try and be what you don’t understand. Michael Jackson’s kids don’t have to try to be rich, they just have to understand what it means.” How does holiness come? “Holiness comes from God by His declaration. So whatever God declares holy - is. When that thought comes up (regardless of where it comes from) you are holy.”
  5. 5. “Holiness has a negative image because people feel like they can t live up to it.” “When you are given something holy to do and you put your hands in it and you’re unholy, your sins will come out of it. You may want to sing, but God is saying, “There is still uncleanliness in you", so it exposes you.” “If you touch anything holy and you’re still unclean, it will expose you.” “What God wants us to understand is that we don’t have to be anything. In this Christian walk all you have to do is understand. Trying to be holy is not going to make God clean you faster. It’s not going to make your thoughts go away. Just understand holiness and have a responsibility to "not yet".” A Form of Godliness... “Having a form of godliness is really unholiness. Having a form of godliness and denying the Holy Spirit’s operation in your life simply means you already have your own idea about God. When you have your own idea about God (a pastor, or a pastor’s wife, or a prophet you never met), then you start looking for your idea.” “When people have an idea that means they are denying Him and are unclean. So what happens is when they walk in a holy place is that people have to deny their ideas. Your idea's become a system, and your system becomes
  6. 6. your way of doing things. So when you come in truth and truth doesn't look like your idea of church, then people feel like, "It doesn’t take all that!" Why? Because that’s their idea.” “Most people who have an idea about God will never open the bible to see if what people are doing is their idea because God stops at their idea.” “Most people perceive God through their ideas.” “Because of our ideas and not the Holy Spirit, this is why a lot of people can’t worship in Spirit and in Truth...because you have an idea about Him.” “Understand God so He can be God. People keep trying to be God instead of understanding Him.” “People keep trying to do holiness without understanding holiness, but you don’t have to do anything, Church people will tell you, "Each one reach one." But how can you help God when you’re on your journey? If God wants them, He will call them. Now it’s not just going to evangelize, but understanding evangelism. If nobody comes to church or wants Him, then you have still evangelized. Many people evangelize with their idea and when their god doesn't show up they get upset.”
  7. 7. “Real holiness will not cause you to retreat from society but will allow you to go directly to sinners. Why? Because Jesus was a friend of sinners. Most people dealing with a falsified holiness retreat from them. How do you not want to be with sinners and Jesus was? The truth of the matter is people don’t want to be with sinners because they can convert you. When you understand holiness, you don’t have to fake it because then you will understand that you don’t have to sleep with that person. We get too deep trying to understand why you can’t sleep with that person. But that doesn't matter, just understand your purpose. Does the judge ask the criminal why he did the crime? No, just judge the crime and lock it up. It’s not about why, but who I am. I’m holy...that’s it. Your mind wants to keep asking you why, but just be.” “When you understand what holiness is, then you can function in a kingdom environment.” “Many people talk about having an understanding of God when they only have an idea.” “The enemy camouflages his sins. They start out small and end up real big and then you end up doing stuff because you had an idea.” Real Holiness... “Real holiness brings about a clear sense of purpose.”
  8. 8. “You cannot understand purpose without understanding holiness.” “Understanding holiness allows you to have knowledge that other people don’t because everybody is not willing to pay the price for holiness.” “Holiness allows us to know true joy and peace no matter the circumstance.” “Without holiness your purpose in life will never make sense. Happiness is not your purpose so why are you trying to be it? That’s not your purpose but a feeling. Whatever the day is, bring it. There is no such thing as happiness, but joy. Understand joy then you can have joy.” “Happiness is not your purpose because you’re going to create an idea of happiness and miss your purpose.” “Real holiness causes you to understand the difference between your idea and God’s purpose. Your idea has nothing to do with God’s purpose for your life.” “God will allow your ideas to never be purposeful because that’s your idea. He said, "Your ways are not Mine. You are My children and I am your God." He wants to rule your life and every fiber of it. He is not interested in your ideas. Your ideas will hinder God’s purpose for you. If you didn't get your idea out there in the world, you’re not going to get it in here.”
  9. 9. “Your own idea takes you down your own path. Then you start walking according to your idea, then you’re off course. You have to get to a place where you are tired of messing up your life.” “What girds up holiness is obedience.” “The reason why people rely on their own ideas because they are easy. It requires suffering to understand God’s purpose, but everybody wants to remain comfortable. God’s purpose comes with suffering and this is why people take their own path because they want to avoid suffering to themselves at all costs. This is because people "pre-feel it", so they don’t to feel it all the way. It’s like a movie preview (you can determine if you want to see the whole thing). It’s not like you don’t want to pay the price, you just don’t want to feel it.” “People avoid purpose like they avoid the dentist. “Take my tooth out as long as I don’t feel it.” The only time you will go to the dentist is when you’re suffering, but the purpose of the suffering is for the tooth to come out.” “True holiness doesn't come easy, but with a great struggle and great suffering. Most people won’t even put themselves in a suffering situation to be holy.”
  10. 10. “True holiness gives a practical perspective on how to handle opposition. You can’t handle opposition unholy.” “Holiness is also a race and what keeps you in the race is obedience. While you’re in the race, He is sanctifying. You’re not going to be sanctified and cleansed all at one time. If you find out you’re a cheater today, a hooker tomorrow, it’s a daily sanctification. When you come to the realization of some thing’s, its sanctification, you’re coming out with it now. You call it something else, but no, He is sanctifying you.” “When God finishes sanctifying you then He can justify you.” “Holiness is nothing but a marathon and you’re the runner. You goal is Jesus' face. Every day of your life you’re being sanctified. Think about Peter. He changed Peter’s name into what He was going to change Him into. When people run a marathon, they don’t just wake up and get a medal, it takes practice. During the race, the runner understands that in order to get that medal, they can’t get out the race.” “If God put you in it, He knew you could endure it. He’s rooting for you. He’s at the finish line saying, "Already, but not yet. Don’t let go of Me, and I won’t let go of you."”
