ACHIEVING YOUR POTENTIAL
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 13 January 2017

Achieving our potential is totally something that develops from how God created us in body, soul and spirit when we accept His principles for living. I have posted this before but not fully so this is a little better may-be to understand where I am coming from.
“ACHIEVING YOUR POTENTIAL”
BECOMING FULFILLED-Good Positive self image is so important to becoming godlier like the image of Gods rather than the Devils behavior and actions.
1. What do you see as the big picture? War-hunger-refugees-murder-poverty and shame.
2. Where are you in that picture? Surrounded by lies, decent and threatening of life.
3. What is the reason for being here? To bring glory to God, for creating me and giving me the power to live a life of peace and joy, from my dedication to God ways, truths and life.
4. What do you want? Satisfaction of being a part of something everlasting!
ACHIEVING YOUR POTENTIAL
I. Comfort Zone is that area which corresponds with your current self-image in any area of your life. The higher the self-esteem the broader the comfort zone. Move out of it and we experience tension, anxiety, breathing becomes difficult, muscles in neck tighten, we secrete extra digestive juices causing ulcers. The result: Decreased effectiveness and poor performance.
A. Building your own self-esteem in two ways.
1. Self talk-I CAN- I WILL
2. Present yourself to the Lord. Romans 12:1-2.
B. Is it what you think, or what God thinks that is important?
C. Imagination time’s vividness equals reality on the subconscious level is either positive or negative depending on who your faith is in.
1. Humanism says the subconscious doesn’t know the difference between actual experiences and one vividly imagined. So good and bad, lies and the truth have no consequence, which is a lie.
D. Notice worldly or carnal people’s custom and sinful ways.
1. In committing popular sins. Exodus 23 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:  33  They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee. Romans 1:21-32.  
21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 
22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 
23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 
24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 
25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 
26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 
27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 
28  And even as they did not like to retain God in theirknowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 
29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 
30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 
31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 
32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 
23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 
24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 
31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 
32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
2. In false worship. Deuteronomy 12:29-32;  
29  When the LORD thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land; 
30  Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. 
31  Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods. 
32  What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
30  Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. 
31  Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods. 
32  What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
Acts 17:22-31 22  Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. 
23  For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. 
24  God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 
25  Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; 
26  And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 
27  That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: 
28  For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. 
29  Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. 
30  And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: 
31  Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

James 4 the fourth day of 2017
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 06 January 2017

Here we are in the fourth day of 2017 and are so thrilled in knowing they are involved in the life of the Church which brings so much pleasure, for we never get enough and yet we are fulfilled in accomplishing, not forsaking of ourselves in the house of the Lord. We know from experience the Family of God needs to get together to be empowered by one another, to put our hands to the plow and not looking back, as we need to keep on moving forward in Gods direction. It seems like we have so many voices that are clamoring for our involvement and we have to choose good over evil!
James 4 New King James Version (NKJV)
Pride Promotes Strife that needs to be resisted or we sin.
Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? We are always at war with our foe Satan. For the old man is bent on doing what comes natural. You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet[a] you do not have because you do not ask.  The old man or person you really are is fighting all time against Gods will, for we want to do our thing rather than, God will. So, we hate and that is like being a murder. We are seeing more violence than any time as, lawless seems to be upon us, and we are seeing this around the world. Many are calling upon the Lord now and asking for help. Notice this is not going to happen without the Lord will wanting to be done. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. Lord help us to see the importance of asking, so You can intervene and come into the situation and bring a solution for the good of all His creation.  Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Adulterers and adulteresses is very descriptive of evil and it is so easy to become involved in the things of the world, for everyone seems to be involved in activities that are not benefiting mankind, but being inhuman and spectacular, or way out beyond human ability. Look at the movie industry and video games that see how many you can kill without any consequences to the one involved at the time, yet they need more adulteress actions. Never get enough, never getting satisfied is common with those who have adulterous relationships. I do not want to be antisocial, but make sure my imagination times vividness does equal reality that benefits all around me, not just me. We seem to be living in a time when many are only interested in what they want, without any feelings of how others feel or think. This is selfishness seen as adultery at the greatest degree.
Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously? I have seen jealousy many times destroy relationships and then seen it as the greatest assist we have to give us the respect needed to trust and obey. The Lord says, He is a Jealous God and does not like us paying attention to anyone else, like obeying Satan and not Him. It is so easy to give God our best when we are hurting and He wants our attention all the time not just in emergency!
But He gives more grace. Grace is only given by God when it is needed, for it is just like the air we breathe to be alive. Grace is a byproduct of the package given as we accept the Lord as our savior. Grace is greater than all our sins is so true, as God can forgive the worst of sinners.
Therefore He says:
God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.  Thank the Lord He makes sure we are not able to take His place, for no one else can create anything out of nothing, yet that is what God is doing all down through history. We all need help to stay connected to the Lord without pride of thinking we are better than anyone else.

5 DAYS AFTER CHRISTMAS
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 30 December 2016

What a day after Christmas as many are still sleeping after 9 am and I have been up since 6:30am ready the Bible in Malachi to see what it was like before the New Testament. It was a time when God needed to usher in a new area called grace. People had become so used to doing their own things and it became a problem to the masses and not just a few. Only God could restore order, to enable and empower man to live in peace and have good will to empower one another to work for His will not ours. People had become pride full of wickedness like stubble, no good, but used as fertilizer to grow more evil. The sun of righteousness was coming with healing in His wings, to tread down evil ways and save us from sins that crumble our lives as we abide in Him. The Lord wants to rebuke the devourer that destroys the fruit of the land. God wants to restore us as we bring our tithes into the house of the Lord, so the store house will always be full to help others. The Lord wants us to return unto Him, so we can be refreshed daily as we are empowered as we abide in the vine.
So may you see you need for making sure your body-soul and spirit are united in having faith in doing and obeying Gods word and not listening to Satan as man has been doing since time began.
 
 
Here we are in the second day after Christmas and reading Amos who lets us know those who seek God are going to truly live, for they hate evil and love good. They know who establishes good for the purpose of being able to judge. Judgement is needed to make sure we are disciplined to do good and be righteous. We hear the term day of the Lord and Amos refers to it as darkness no light very dark, and is that not what is going on around the world and are we not given to being captive by the enemy with sin? That is the reason God uses the plum line, He is the one in charge of how we build and what we build upon. So, who is in charge of your life is determine by who has the Plum line in His hand? God will build the waste city Jerusalem and no one will pluck Israel out of Gods hands that was given to them.
What is going on now is no different than what happen in the beginning when man wanted to be like god and do whatever he wanted than after it was all over have to hide for they were ashamed. 
We are living in a time when there is no shame in evil for it is entertaining and holds us captive to its charm and excitement and we cant wait for the next page or next thrill of seeing the unbelievable episode. Entertainment is filling many Churches and it works. May we understand the Plum line God uses is His, and He loves us and does not want to see people destroy people. Life is not a game it is a way, truth and life thats built upon the platform of Gods righteousness and holiness that s pure solid rock. Full of love, mercy and grace that needs discipline in order to be just for all. Remember God is going to judge us according to our works for without works we are dead in our trespasses of sin.
The wages of sin is death, the gift of God is life everlasting, for Gods love, mercy and peace of goodwill to men, is still bringing people out of bondages to accepting abiding in the vine and resting in the out stretched hand of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
3 days after Christmas reading Revelation to catch a glimpse of what is going on in these last days. For we are seeing and reading the word of God and comparing it to the Biblical account of the way, truth and life. We do not know what is happening until the Spirit of God reveals Himself to us, as we travel through our course given by God. God is ready to combat evil just as in the beginning of time and we have to be connected to His source of energy to benefit from His blessing, without becoming embittered. He is gracious to give us peace now and every day, when we are abiding in the vine; Jesus.  God then can give us the ability to hang on to the truth of what is happening in a world of media not proclaiming truth, but what they want truth to be, so a lie is now truth and truth is a lie. Just as the Lord said, to Paul in Romans 1:25. It is so easy to have dementia which fails to give us the understand to know the truth. Just as dementia is very hard to address and cure, so it is with lies, they are hard to see, for they destroy the ability to make wise decisions based on what is good for all.
God gave us all we see to enjoy, so we can benefit from His wonderful works of art, as we stay connected to Him, communicating and listening to His desires.
As Christians, we are in an oven and the heat seems to be turn up, for evil is on the rampage, killing thousands of innocent people around the word, but the fire of the Holy Spirit is cooking and empowering thousands to witness Gods Devine intervention. The closer we get to the return of the Lord for the Church, the greater the manifestations of His hands out stretched still. This is seen where evil of ISIS and the false church is deceiving thousands, yet Gods Spirit is being accepted by many torn by the wickedness around them. That is Gods Spirit being in control as people turn and let Him witness to them of His love, mercy and grace.
Man, was created to achieve his or her potential as we keep on asking, seeking and knocking for Gods will to be done and not wanting our way. Wanting our way is what Adam and Eve wanted in the garden and ever sense we are infected with sins disease, that is rampant and we see it by the bitterness around the world, and God created us with a mind to repent and become a child growing to become more and more like Lord.
So who are you becoming more like God or Satan.
4th day after Christmas I am looking at the 7 Churches of Revelation 2 to 3 to see the ages we have been though as a Church. This is Charles Larkens writing I like very much for it is so biblical.
1.   Ephesus Rev. 2-1-7 the Church that had forsaken its first love. Backslidden-let go to relaxedn no hold on, or abiding in God, but the false Church
2.   Smyrna Rev. 2:8-11 The Church that would suffer persecution. Like a Bitterness, meaning; Myrrh, associated with death. The time of Nero A D. 64 ending with Diocletian in A.D. 310 to Constantine in A.D. 312
3.   Pergamum Rev. 2:12-17 The Church that needed to repent. Licentious Church, eating things offered to idols, sitting on Satans seat. The Balaam doctrine of committing whoredoms. Pergamos means marriage. From period of A.D. 312 to A.D 606 when Boniface 3rd was crowned.
4.   Tyatira Rev. 2:18-29 The Church that had the false prophets, a lax Church, no works listen to Jazebel a prophetess. Represented by the Papal Church, from A.D. 606 to the reformation in A. D. 1520., Jezebel of the Church of Thyatira. The Woman referred to latter in Revelations.
5.   Sardis Rev 3:1-6 The Church that had fallen asleep. Dead men walking, yet a name to live. Formalistic-ritualistic- form of godliness but no power. The escaping or coming out of was necessary to lie. It was the time of Martin Luther and a number of other reformers protesting against false teaching, tyranny and claims by the Papal dictatorial rule. Martin Luther began about A.D. 1500 to protest, setting in the reformation that opened up the Bible that was chained down.  It lasted from A.D. 1520 to A.D. 1750
