Preach Christ – Keeping It Simple In Poland

Poland-and-neighbours-map_fb-sizeHere we are in Poland – Gdansk, Elblag area.

Our focus: Preach Christ.

For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord. 2 Corinthians 4:5

We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. Colossians 1:28

Rivers of Eden Ministry is consumed with Jesus Christ, preaching, teaching and prophesying from the depths of who He is in our lives. Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks. We speak Jesus. We bring forth the creative expression of Christ within and challenge people to BE the creative expression of Jesus Christ.

When God expresses Himself, it is Christ. We can rightly say that God spoke Himself into human life in the person of the Lord Jesus. For this reason, John called Christ the logos, the Living Word of God. God’s Word is a person. The one true God has revealed Himself  completely and finally in Jesus…..In like manner, the Holy Spirit, the great Revelator, also reveals Christ. And Christ is the only thing that the Spirit reveals. He has no other revelation. The Spirit introduces Jesus, usually in some new way.  Jesus Manifesto: Frank Viola

We preach the reality of the person of Christ. This is our journey right now. This is how it should be. From this reality will flow healing, deliverance, salvation and creative impartation.

The characteristic of Christianity lies in the fact  that its source, depth, and riches are involved with the knowledge of God’s Son. It matters not how much we know of methods of doctrines or power. What really matters is the knowledge of the Son of God. Watchman Nee

During these next few weeks, I will be posting in this journey keeping it simple in Poland. In the deep waters, calling people to come to Jesus.

Speak the truth, Or Say Nothing at All?

I have a book – “Come Away My Beloved” by Frances J. Roberts. I’ve had this book since the early 90’s but it was written in the 60’s.  Set in a devotional format, this book speaks to the heart. Along the journey, I wrote dates, thoughts, and words of revelation within its pages. So many times, Holy Spirit directs me back to read something again. Here is something for today. Some of the words are written in a thee and thou style but look beyond that and be encouraged.

The Truth Will Set You FreeSpeak the Truth
Frances J. Roberts

“Lo, I say unto thee, be not intimidated by anyone, but speak forth My Word, even as I give it unto thee. Ye have written freely and fearlessly. Now speak in the same way. Thy spoken word must be brought into conformity with the work I have done within thee. This ye need for your own personal sense of unity. This ye need for your own strength. For the house divided against itself cannot stand; neither can ye so long as ye bear one testimony in thine heart and another on thine lips. 

Thou art not pleasing Me, but trying to please men. They will detect the inconsistency in spite of your best efforts, for in one way or another, the truth will break through. Ye need not say all that is in your heart, but ye must speak the truth or be silent. If ye cannot bring yourself to speak the truth without apology, then speak nothing.

Let the life and witness of Jesus Christ be your guide. If ye are willing to attempt to emulate His honesty, I will come to your aid to give you wisdom also; so that the answer may be not only true but forceful. For ye wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the unseen opposition of satanic forces. These may at times be arrayed against thy soul even through thy dearest friends, so that ye may have to reply as Jesus did to Peter on one occasion. (Mk. 8:33)

Set not out upon a mission to convert the world to your convictions, but rather to hold you own convictions inviolable against the forces of the opposition. I will be with thee, and will keep thy mouth. Trust me”

As we walk through life, we are not alone. Greatness has preceded us and greatness will come after us. Many came before us, imparting great wisdom in revelation through their encounters and experiences with God. Many more will come after us. We are all on life’s journey in Christ, each of walking in a unique destiny and calling. We all have something to give as the creative expression of Christ Jesus in the earth today. Let’s glean from those who came before us, never lifting ourselves up in pride or arrogance to believe that we have it all, know it all, and that there has never been a time like this.

Read and enjoy this today. I will blog over the next few days some thoughts from this wonderful devotional.
