Romans 12
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 04 January 2019

As we look at Romans 12 we are seeing Paul not giving us his opinion but Gods for Religion is man made and Christianity is Gods plan as we accept His Divine plane of good will and peace to all. We are a part of the Kingdom of God not the kingdom of Satan’s for he is out to destroy everything that is the truth. We have a duty to press on in the truth of His words and can’t do right without abiding in the vine Jesus. We need to understand the foundation of how to receive faith that God gave us all the size of a mustard seed, so it can grow as it is rooted in the Lord way, truth and life so it produces good will and fruit regardless of the Circumstance.
There is a great deal of duty that God prescribes in order for us to grow in grace and mercy. Every race we run requires getting in shape in order to complete the task before us every day. It is excepting practical doctrinal truths so we can be justified by faith which Paul discussed in the previous chapters. We do not get to do what we want or see what we want, we get to have our eyes fixed on the goals of one day seeing the Lord as He is; loving good and kind as He has prepared the way to heaven for us as we rest or abide in Him.
So we have three duties, 1. We have a duty to listen to God hear His voice. 2 It is a personal walk or personal duty. 3. We have a duty to our brothers, people created by God.
It is God grace that teaches us to live godly, soberly and righteously and deny all that which is contrary. We are going to see in this chapter the understanding what godliness, sobriety and righteousness are all intermixed.
Romans 12

 

Living Sacrifices to God

12 I beseech[a] you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your [b]reasonable service. Paul is wanting us to make sure we understand the mercies of God requires us to take control of our bodies five senses, which are carnal, ears are for hearing, eyes for seeing danger, mouth for eating food to grow, nose for making sure we smell our food and stay away from fowl food. The we have skin that keeps us from all bactrial that inflicts us, causing us to feel bad and unhealthy. Then we all have a soul, conscience that give us the feeling of all is well for we make mistakes and when we repent our consciences are alive and will. We see today anything goes and it is seen by the chaos around the world. Then we all have an imagination that seem to be out of control for we are seeing nothing as impossible, man can do anything. But is it right and benefiting all. Look at our reasons for doing what we do, is many time destroying what us humanin and proper, as our memory so easily forgets what happen in the past and rather than become better we are getting bitter towards one another.  So our affection is geared to pleasing self and we can’t please self or others. Lord help us to see how easy it is living in sin to not have control for the simple reason we are not aware of the Spirit of God with in us all that has five areas that affect us. 1. Faith-who is in in Man-Satan or God. 2. Hope is given to all but who do we hope in God self or Satan. 3. Worship is shown by who you are guided by and listen to, God or Satan? 4. Reverence is what give us pride of ownership or causes us to be ashamed and we do not care what we do or say until we repent and are forgiven. 5. Prayer is something we can’t get along without. For God wants to answer our prayers so we can be what He created us to be.

Are you seeing the power that you were created with as you present your body as a living sacrifice to God will? Its as God empowers us, that we are able to achieve our potential He created us with, and everyone has abilities and talents that either are a blessing to mankind or are a curse to mankind. Lord help us to realize we are not able to be good without a spiritual bend in life. To be holy is a choice and if it is not chosen there is no holiness, purity, or good mental health. This I hope is reasonable to understand for without becoming like God we are unholy as filthy rags. 

I say and please do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. It is so easy to be conformed to the way of the world, for we are taught to do our thing, which leads to no one being happy. Lord help us to see others are affected by what we say and do, for we are all living together in a world that needs order. It is proven when people are together anything can be accomplished. Today the technology is improving so fast it is taking over our kids and they are mesmerized by how easy it is to maneuver from one pic to other and never get bored. When it is taken away the child has a tantrum and we are seeing adults having tantrums that show disorder and dysfunctional behavior and attitude around the world for they can’t seem to discipline. This is caused for the simple reason we have forgotten to discipline ourselves in the mind and given ourselves to the things of the world. God wants us to prove Him and see that He is able to give us the ability to manage what we have to where it does not control us, but we are able to control whatever our hands have been given to do.

Gods, Holy Spirit when we accept His mercy and grace is sufficient to give us the ability to overcome our anger and it is used as a force to fight off evils hold on our attitude, or behavior. 

Serve God with Spiritual Gifts

For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. Paul was speaking from the understanding given to Him at Salvation. For He witnessed God grace given to him to stop what he was doing and begin to listen to the voice of God. Gods voice is being heard today as it has never been heard, for He seems to be screaming, come unto me all you that are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest. As we are seeing starvation, runaway inflation, indebtedness’, crime’ drugs, sexual acting out, dysfunctionalism like never before. For people think they are ok doing whatever they want as if they were on a drunk, or high on drugs. Lord help us to sober up and see imagination that is vivid showing reality that is Godly and purifying to all

For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Thank the Lord we can understand the importance of the body when it is in good working order to ward off imperfection and impurities of this world we are involved with every day. Every one of us in the family of God have been chosen by God to be a apart of His body so man can take the head ship of the marriage, for it is God that gives us a job in His family. Just like our eyes to not argue with our ears; they take commands from the mind. We are in Christ and His mind is what propels us to do His will and not our will. We are all individuals in the Church wanting Gods way to be done. We do not clash with one another, but work together for the good of one another. We stand in relation to one another doing good to one another, encouraging one another for we are on the same field in our big world.  We need to comfort one another more today than any time in my life.Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; It is amazing how everyone created by God, that becomes saved has gifts and talents that differ from one another, not to be abused but developed to be of use. We are never put on the shelf, but to be used by Gods might powerful hand according to our faith. Grace is given by God as we accept who we are in Him. It is grace that God gave to all to become His children, but do all follow the Lord? We are going to see 7 gifts as distinct offices God uses for the glory of the Church’s benefit. Prophesying is a gift given according to our faith. That faith is one who has studied and knows the inside working of the Holy Spirit telling of things that are going to come to pass. People need to be warned concerning sin and its duty to bring punishment. We are on a highway that is narrow and few going our direction and few that find it. Preacher are doing all they can to point people in the right direction. Today if you follow maps on the computer you can see the fasted route to anywhere. The Bible was written thousands of years ago and still has the map to get to heaven, but it has to be used.  We as preachers can only preach what we know as the way, truth and life from Gods word. It is not based on mans understanding or knowledge but upon the wisdom of wise counsel that works and will come to pass as one grows in God grace by faith. Lord help me to believe what I preach in order to see results of people changing, becoming more like the Lord. We can’t force faith upon anyone else, faith is personal and needs to be focused on the Lord  so our

ON EARTH PEACE AND GOODWILL

“On Earth Peace and Goodwill to Men”!
Daily Devotion: Just Another Night in Bethlehem - By Greg Laurie - www.harvest.org
 
Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done marvelous things! -Joel 2:21
 
On the first Christmas Eve, there were no brightly colored lights on anyone's homes. There were no stockings that had been hung with care or any visions of sugarplums dancing in children's heads. It was just another night in Bethlehem. The census had gone out-that command by Caesar that everyone was to be taxed. But history was about to change in Bethlehem.
 
All of Israel was living in a very frightening time historically. They lived under the tyrant King Herod who would execute people at will. In addition, the Jews were living in occupied territory. The Romans had taken control of their country. They were no longer free to do what they wanted and live as they wanted. They wondered if Rome would ever leave. Would the violent rule ever cease? Would their world ever change?
 
Then suddenly angels appeared to the shepherds and told them not to be afraid; the Messiah had been born.
 
There is a lot to be afraid of in our unstable, volatile world today. It seems that at every turn, we hear about another horrific tragedy happening in our world. It can cause us to be terrified.
 
Then there are the personal fears: What if I lose my health? What if I lose a member of my family? What if this happens? What if that happens? A lot of things run through our minds. 
 
Here is the message of the first Christmas-and the message for us this Christmas: Don't be afraid. . . . I bring you good tidings of great joy.
 
Ray Stedman wrote, "The chief mark of the Christian ought to be the absence of fear and the presence of joy."
 
Does that describe you? Fear is what Christmas came to remove-and now we can have joy in its place.
Last Sunday we look at what the wise men “Gentiles” saw a star the Kingdom of God that governs our world by religion, economic and government now here to-day we see what the shepherds  “Jews” saw and heard Luke 2 8-14 On Earth Peace and Goodwill!
Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And [c]behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a [d]manger.”
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill[e] toward men!”
And on earth peace, goodwill[e] toward men!”

KINGDOM OF GOD
Contributed by Jerral Campfield

Kingdom of God
This is the Kingdom that not only turns the Old Testament inside out but operates opposite of earthy kingdoms. This Kingdom is mention 32 times in Matthews and reflects the messianic Kingdom for seen by the prophet (Isaiah 9:6-7)
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. 
Rome was the Government that was in charge of what was going on and it was corrupt and King Herod was will aware of the fact something was going to happen and he was determined not to allow it to happen on his watch. So when the wise men came to him to let him know they were following a star to worship this new King Herod was troubled. Someone was going to have a much bigger Kingdom and he did not like this, so wanted the wise men to tell him where this child was going to be. So Matthew 2: 1 to 6 gives us the picture of Wise Men from the East
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, [a]wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”
When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.
So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:
‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
Are not the least among the rulers of Judah;
For out of you shall come a Ruler
Who will shepherd My people Israel.
 
Notice they were wise men who studied the stars for they had a lot of time to identify the wonders of stars. It is amazing how many want to know what kind of star they are, astrology is real, it’s the practice of science claiming to foretell the future by studying supposed influence of the relative positions of the moon, sun and stars on human affairs. That is the reason for horoscopes at the checkout stands at grocery stores. 
These wise men were no doubt Gentiles not belonging to the commonwealth of Israel and knew the Stars and here this one is seen traveling. They were scholars they liked the ark of the sky’s and were curious learning about the God who created the stars. Men of the East noted for their soothsaying Isa. 2:6 no doubt from Arabia. We sing the song we three King of orient are. So being a student of the stars they saw one brighter than the rest and it was like a comet that was moving in the lower part of the air. So it was not common and they know it was something to follow. God is always shining His light for the world to see His glory and love and we are seeing it around the world today as Government’s, religious bodies and economic are being question and people know something is going to happen. Lord help us to see the star the Lord is showing our world today for He is still what the world needs. We are seeing signs in the heavens, hurricanes, floods, fires, earthquakes, snow heights greater than ever, hot getting hotter and signs of astrology practiced by many around the world. 
The Shepherds were notified by an angel, these Gentile Philosopher’s wise men, where lead by a star. God always speaks in a way we can all understand. The wise men saw the star after leading them to the place Jesus was born. Idolaters worship the stars and the Old Testament in Isaiah 47:13  You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels; Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, And the monthly prognosticators Stand up and save you From what shall come upon you. Daniel 1:20 says and in all matters of wisdom and understanding about which the king examined them,(Shadrach; Meshach; and Abednego.)he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were in all his realm.When King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream causing his spirit to be troubled, he commanded the magicians and the astrologers and the sorcerers to see if they know what this dream meant. They wanted him to tell about his dream and he said, no you tell me and if you can’t you will be cut in pieces and your houses shall be made a dung kill. They said, King there is not a man on earth that can tell you about this dream. The king was mad, angry and furious and commanded that all wise should be slain. But Daniel asked the head wiseman Arioch why is the degree so hasty, so he asked to be saved with Shadrack Meshach and Abednego. Daniel was given permission to go to the King and tell him what the dream was all about. The Image you saw was excellent, but terrible you saw the future of the Kingdoms that will rule. This made the King respond by saying in Daniel 2:47The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.
I hope you’re seeing the star within the Kingdom of God for it is the Church that Jesus came to embrace and empower to allow us to become like Him. This Kingdom is Gods favor given to all He created, that was good, Do all people see Gods goodness no, only those that are saved accepting the way, truth and life as they abide in the vine; Jesus, so we can produce fruit that is good for all.
We are seeing the Kingdom of God being threated around the world and the more the Church is persecuted the faster it grows.
We are seeing the image King Nebuchadnezzar saw with the Religious arena, Government and economics become reality as one world order is fast approaching. Look at the role of the United Nations.

As the most representative inter-governmental organization of the world today, the United Nations' role in world affairs is irreplaceable by any other international or regional organizations. The United Nations has made enormous positive contributions in maintaining international peace and security, promoting cooperation among states and international development. Today, people of the world still face the two major issues of peace and development. Only by international cooperation can mankind meet the challenges of the global and regional issues. The United Nations can play a pivotal and positive role in this regard. Strengthening the role of the United Nations in the new century and promoting the establishment of a just and reasonable international political and economic order goes along with the trend of history and is in the interest of all nations.
In order to strengthen the role of the United Nations, efforts should be made to uphold the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations. The authority of the Security Council in maintaining international peace and security must be preserved and role of the United Nations in development area should be strengthened. To strengthen the role of the United Nations, it is essential to ensure to all Member States of the United Nations the right to equal participation in international affairs and the rights and interests of the developing countries should be safeguarded. 
Government has to have money in order to survive and the World Bank started in 1944 has it’s resent goalthe reduction of poverty.[5] As of November 2018, the largest recipients of world bank loans were India ($859 million in 2018) and China ($370 million in 2018), through loans from IBRD International Bank for Reconstruction and Development. This is connected with the Federal Reserve established in1443 and it is the Central Bank of the United States, that provides the nation with a safe, flexable, and stable monetary and financial system. They work with the world bank and yet we see no justice with in our world all for the simple reason our religious system is controlled by Revelation 13 which shows the third beast described with a  wounded head, but  is healed, speaking blasphemy against God in the Church verse 
It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every [d]tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the [e]patience and the faith of the saints.
I hope you’re seeing the Kingdom of God is not controlled by man, but by the Holy Spirit. That is the reason we need to be convicted when we sin so we turn towards the Lord for good mental health. We are seeing people confined in Jails suing for a settlement of 83.4 million dollars, for not providing timely competency services to mentally ill in jails in Washington State. 
Here we are as a Church ministering to people who are sinners only saved by grace as they accept the good news, Jesus saves. 
Read John 3:16 and John 15 and trust Your seeing the arms of Jesus that are reaching down to save you from the pits of Satan’s hellish deeds, so you can achieve your potential in Him. As you’re a part of the Kingdom of God.
