Daily Manna - Responsible to Function


God is building a Body of people for His habitation and it is our responsibility to participate in that work with Him. Do you realize that the majority of Christianity today wants to sit back and not do anything but receive? Israel wanted a king like the other nations (I Samuel 8:5). And that is what most churches have today. They have a king that comes up to the pulpit and preaches a sermon. The people sit back, listen to it, and walk out saying, “Wasn’t that a great sermon?” They are spectators with a king! Well, we have come to a day when God is bringing an end to that. He is going to bring down the religious kings and establish His Kingdom. He is creating a functioning Body of Christ.


Christianity, in general, has gotten very far off course from the will of God. He is now raising up a people that He can move through and bring forth His will. Surely the Lord God will do nothing, unless He reveals His secret unto His servants the prophets. Amos 3:7. Why would God speak to His prophets before He did anything? It is because they had to speak the Word He was to move through.more




We are interested in the mysteries spoken of in the Word of God. They are the truths and Kingdom concepts hidden in the Scriptures. The Greek word for "mystery" is mysterion; it means "a thing hidden, a religious secret, or that which is not obvious to the understanding." It occurs 22 times in the King James Bible. We will not look at every passage of Scripture where it is found, but we will examine enough to sharpen our desires for the Word of God.

God's Word is not laid bare for just anyone. His Word is for those who are hungering after Him, and it is the hunger for Him that will begin uncovering the veil over the Word of God.

We will begin with a portion of Scripture in John chapter seven. Here we will see Jesus at the Feast of Tabernacles in the midst of a multitude, yet hidden. As such, He is an example of a mystery.

BOOKS FROM OHM - Justified           
We are justified when we accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior. Our sins were laid upon Him and He became the guilt offering in our behalf. That means we are totally free from any guilt. But we do not want to remain in a "vacuum." We're innocent but we ant more than that. We want o grow in God and become mature Christians. We want to learn how to live in God's presence. Our salvation must expand as well as our justification.
