THEN "DO" and 

     Hello, Precious People of God!  We pray that this Letter finds you well in Jesus Name!  We are on our way in this Year of 2014 and oh what a year for The Church it is!  We have all come to know, that NUMBERS MEAN WORDS!  And how prophetically the number of "14" means DOUBLE ANOINTING!  (FOURTEEN OR "14" means other words also, (we will address those other definitions in forthcoming Teachings, if it be The Lord's Will.)  We talked of that in order for Christ's Church to operate and manifest in this Double Anointing that the atmosphere of 2014 is primed for, there will be personal requirements that will be essential for the Believer to do.  Again, The Lord Jesus wants ALL OF HIS CHURCH to walk in the Double Anointing, yet just like Salvation, living Holy and Righteous and following The Word of God . . . . IT IS A CHOICE! 
             "His Way" - "My Way" - "Way Less"

     See, Church, We Choose THE LEVEL and MAGNITUDE and DEGREE of God's Kingdom that we will live in here on Planet Earth.  The Lord has provided EVERYTHING that we will ever need to know in His Word and through His Holy Spirit.  Yet, we choose whether we will take the gift of our life and live it as The Master says to or not.  There are those who have already chosen and will choose in 2014 and every year to come to conduct their lives in TOTAL SURRENDER to God and His Word.  If they see it in The Word, they have resolved that they will alter themselves to what The Word says, not alter The Word to what they want or think about a situation.  They choose to believe what God believes, say what He says and to STAND for what The Master says is right and opposes what The Master says is wrong.  They are not moved by the culture and people around them.  The Word is First Place in their lives and The Word IS THE LAST WORD on everything to them.  I call this group of soldiers for The Kingdom, People of "His Way." 

     Then there are those who are Born Again, yet they have decided that they will only turn over or yield parts of their lives and ideas to God.  I call these individuals the "My Way" Group.  They love God, attend Church and even serve, but the "My Way" individual wants to make their decisions according to what they think or what their family, friends, co-workers or culture thinks is right.  If a family or friend or person of influence in their life thinks an action or issue is okay, then a "My Way" person does too, even though The Word of God has established it to be another way.  They have decided to conduct their lives in the realm of PARTIAL OBEDIENCE to God and His Word.  The "My Way" person will only experience "parts" of what they could have and are entitled to in The Kingdom of God, and it is due to their choices of only submitting to God and His Word and Ways in a limited measure in their lives.  Again, the "My Way" Group live in Partial Obedience to God and His Word.  Remember, Your LEVEL of Kingdom Living is entirely up to you!  Therefore, all the Benefits of this Year of "14" and every year to come will be your choice too!

     And lastly, there is the group I call the "Way Less" Group.  These individuals have at one time in their lives made some type of decision to follow Jesus, but have no fruit or very little fruit in their lives of The Kingdom of God.  They didn't start out that way, they have gradually left God and His Word.  And because there is not fruit or a very small amount of fruit in their lives, their salvation is not sure to them, nor to anyone who knows them.  Most in their family do not even know if they are saved or not saved.  The "Way Less" Group are closer to walking away from God than being in His Family.  Or, they believe that they are saved and they truly are not.  Someone along the way, told him or her that "once you are saved, you are always saved," and they have lived however they wanted to, thinking there were no consequences to their sin.  And now they are living in a lifestyle that is opposite of The Word of God or living like the devil would.  The "Way Less" Group have already walked away from God and don't know that you can do that, or they are on the verge of leaving The Lord.  Either way, these persons need REPENTANCE in their lives! 

     So, what "group" are you in?  Have you Totally Submitted everything in your life to God and His Word and His Ways?  Are you living in the realm where you are doing some things or having your own ideas that are not of God's Word and are in Partial Obedience to God and His Ways?  Or, are you living in a place that your life only has a small fraction of God in it or you have walked away from your First Love, Jesus?  Once more, this year of "14" and for the rest of your life to walk in the DOUBLE ANOINTING WILL REQUIRE SOMETHING FROM YOU!  In order to live out ALL that The Master has in store for us to do with our lives this year, we will have to be in a PLACE, a CONDITION and a LEVEL with Him that maybe we have never been before.  Truly look at yourself Beloved and see where you are.  Please do that for The Lord and yourself!

                   "What Measurement Are You?" 

     We spoke of a place and a condition called yada' (yaw-dah'.)  Yada' is a VERY DEEP AND ITIMATE place that one can have in their relationship with God.  The yada' place is beyond believing in God, trusting in God and relying on God.  Yada' is a deeper, intimate, personal, self sacrificing, loyalty, allegiance and obedience to God and His Word!  Yada' is sacrificing and yielding your ideas, thoughts, ways and literal life for what God says and His Ways!  Laying down your life and your ideas and your words for God's is how you arrive and ABIDE In yada'!  The place and commitment of yada' can be attained by the "His Way" Group.  For the "His Way" Group have decided to change their lives, minds and lifestyles to what God has said in His Word, they've decided to continually remain in Complete Surrender to God.  Sadly, unless the others mentioned before, (the "My Way" and "Way Less" Groups) decide to surrender their ALL to The Master, they will never know the remarkable life they can have with God.  They will never obtain the deep relationship of yada' with Jesus and they will never understand nor have the amazing benefits of living a life in total loyalty and allegiance to God and His Word that they can have.  Church, the playing field is LEVEL FOR ALL!  It doesn't matter your personality, how you grew up, what your intellect is, how much money you have or what your last name is.  We all can do and obey what God has said in His Word.  Obedience is a CHOICE.  And obedience and the level you live by is up to YOU, CHURCH! 

     The Master spoke to us that He measures HOW MUCH WE LOVE HIM, by ONE THING!  John 14:15, "If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands."  If you "really love" The Master, you and I will "keep, obey" His Word.  Jesus measures our love and intimacy with Him, by our obedience to His Word!  We also had seen that Jesus told us not just once in His Word, but three times!  In John 14:15, 21, 23-24 (AMP) 15 If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands . . . . 21 The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me;  and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.] . . . 23 Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love himand We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him. 24 Anyone who does NOT [really] love Me does NOT observe and obey My teaching.  And the teaching which you hear and heed is not Mine, but [comes] from the Father Who sent Me."
     Clearly, Jesus has communicated to us that if we love Him, we obey His Word.  If we do NOT love Him, then WE DO NOT OBEY HimThis is HOW HE SEES IT.  It does not matter the way WE SEE IT.  So, how you and I are living and obeying or NOT obeying God and His Word, is truly THE MEASURE OF HOW MUCH WE LOVE JESUS.  So, how much do you love Him?  Are you reading His Word?  How much are you obeying Him and His Word?  How much are YOU WILLING TO OBEY HIM and His Word?
     Jesus walked and lived on this Earth as a Man.  He operated with the same "rules" that we have.  Some say, well Jesus could do all that He did because He is God?  And you are right to a point.  Yes, He is God.  Yet, He left all His Glory when He came to Earth.  He had to operate the same way that we would have to today.  If He only did the amazing things He did because He had special "powers" then how would we be able to do the things He did now in the Earth?  Father God sent Jesus here to SHOW US HOW TO OPERATE IN THIS EARTH!  Jesus had a choice to obey, just like we do.  Jesus said, "I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord - but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me." (John 5:30 (AMP))  (THIS IS A PICTURE OF TOTAL SURRENDER!) 
     Jesus is telling us so much here.  First, He operated and manifested in those amazing ways that The Bible tells us He did, by the Power of Father God, operating through Him.  Not by Himself!  He said He was "able to do nothing from" Himself.  He acted as He got "orders" from Father God and as He had been shown or "taught" by Father God.  Next, Jesus acted when He heard from The Father.  He heard from Father God, "as the voice came to" Him, Jesus would then have to "decide as I am bidden to decide.  As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision."  Jesus would hear the direction of Father God, then just like you and I, he had to make a decision whether to obey The Voice of God or The Word of God or not!  Yet, what we see in John 5:30 is that Jesus had settled something in His Life.  He had decided to be TOTALLY SURRENDERED TO GOD!  Jesus had made the decision to live His Life in OBEDIENCE to God and His Word, no matter what! 
     Think of this Church, Jesus, The Firstborn decided to obey whatever The Father told Him to do.  If it was spit in some dirt and make mud and put it on a man's eyes, go to Jerusalem today, go to the Tax Collector's house, go and pray through the night . . . . WHATEVER THE FATHER TOLD HIM TO DO, He did it when The Father said to.  Jesus had settled in His life and mind that no matter what He was told to do from The Father, He did it.  He made the choice to obey and He had to, no matter how hard it was or how tired He was, continually make that choice to obey.  Jesus successfully lived out a life of obedience so that we could see that demonstrated right in front of us, so that we would FOLLOW The Master and choose to obey also.  But most importantly, Jesus obeyed every direction of The Father because Jesus loved Father God!  And that is how Father God would have known that Jesus loved Him . . . through Jesus obeying Him!  "If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands." (John 14:15)  And that's how God knows if WE love Him too!

                    "THEN "DO" and "SAY" Only"  

     We see that Jesus had pre-determined to be TOTALLY SURRENDERED in His Life or what we had said previously, Jesus would have been in the "His Way" Group!  For He decided to do what God had told Him to do and follow The Word He heard from God, instead of what He may have thought about the situation He was facing.  Remember, Jesus was completely human when He was walking Planet Earth!  Yes, Jesus had a free will just like we do, Church!  Jesus had His own personal thoughts, opinions and feelings on things just like we do!  Jesus had a decision to make on whether to obey or not when He heard The Father's Word, just like we do!  Jesus would do what He heard The Father say to do and alter Himself and His Will to what God said on purpose!  For Jesus tells us, " . . .because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me." (John 5:30)  Church, we have the same opportunities that Jesus had here on Earth!  He even said we could do greater things than what He did! (John 14:12)  And how will we do what Jesus did and even greater?  We have to decide if we are willing to LAY DOWN OUR WILLS, OUR THOUGHTS, OUR OPINIONS and OUR IDEAS - just like Jesus did!  We have to decide if what everyone else is doing is what we are going to do.  Or, are we going to follow what God has told us to do in His Word.  Are we going to follow our own viewpoints or beliefs that we have formed over what God has said in His Word about the situations or circumstances in our lives?

     Jesus ONLY DID WHAT HE SAW THE FATHER DOING and Jesus ONLY SPOKE WHAT HE HEARD THE FATHER SAYING!  "So Jesus added, When you have lifted up the Son of Man [on the cross], you will realize (know, understand) that I am He [for Whom you look] and that I DO NOTHING of Myself (of My own accord or on My own author
but I SAY [EXACTLY] WHAT MY FATHER HAS TAUGHT ME . . . 29 And He Who sent Me is ever with Me; My Father has not left Me alone, for I always do what pleases Him. 30 As He said these things, many believed in Him [trusted, relied on, and adhered to Him]."  (John 8:28-30 (AMP))  And in John 8:26 (NLT), "I have much to say about you and much to condemn, but I won't. For I say only what I have heard from the one who sent me, and he is completely truthful."
     Jesus NEVER spoke His own Will!  He did not just say what He Felt!  He would not just "blow off at the mouth" for He said in John 8:26, "I have much to say about you and much to condemn, but I won't. For I say only what I have heard from the one who sent me, and he is completely truthful."  He had a choice didn't He?  He could have said much more than what He did, but He chose to obey The Father.  He did not say while He was on Earth that He was tired or fed up with the Disciples.  You would not have heard Him saying things like, well, boys this is the way I look at it or I think about it or I'll tell you my feelings on the matter.  NO!  Because Jesus would only DO what He saw The Father doing (in His Spirit and mind) and Jesus only SAID what HE heard The Father saying!  No personal opinions!  No personal feelings!  No individual beliefs or views!  No speaking what He may have been taught or seen or heard His family, neighbors growing up or what the culture around Him thought.  No!  Jesus ONLY DID what He saw The Father DO and ONLY SAID what The Father SAID!  That's called TOTAL SURRENDER!  That's called OBEDIENCE!  And to God and Jesus and The Holy Spirit that's called LOVE!  Because, "If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands." (John 14:15.) 
     You and I cannot live our lives in 2014 and expect to operate in the DOUBLE ANOINTING, the DOUBLE GOODNESS, the DOUBLE BLESSING of God and not obey what The Bible and The Master says! 
    Remember, He said in John 14:21 "The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]"  In order for the Double Anointing to be able to manifest and be seen, which is what "14" means, WHO we will see manifesting is The Anointing, Himself, Jesus The Christ!  And in this prophetic  year where The Anointing is available to be in the Double Level and in the years to come, Jesus says that He (The Anointed One) will show His Anointing to the person that LOVES HIM!  And HOW does Jesus know that you and I LOVE HIM?  By Our Obedience, Beloved!
     Again, see this revelation, John 14:21, "The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]"

     The Lord is looking for some of His Children to TOTALLY SURRENDER to Him! To make the decision in their lives to OBEY The Lord and His Word! He desires to have His Children OBEY Him, which means to Him, LOVE HIM! He desires for His Children to be ALL THE WAY IN WITH HIM! Not children that are a part of His Family, but do what they think and say what they want to say. He is waiting for His Children to OBEY/LOVE Him, so that He can show, reveal and manifest Himself to them! He wants us to clearly see Him and He wants to make Himself real to us! (John 14:21) So, WHO IS HOLDING HIM BACK? We are Church!  And in this year of "14" we are holding Him back in the Double Level!

      Will you Surrender Totally to Him and His Word?  Will you Do what you hear from The Lord and see in His Word?  Will you only Say what The Master says and has said in His Word?  The AMAZING LIFE is awaiting you and I Beloved! Our ACTIONS and WORDS are what He looks at.  He is watching our DOINGS and listening to our SAYINGS.  Is The Lord seeing OUR WILLS BE DONE or HIS?  Is The Master hearing OUR OPINIONS and IDEAS or HIS?  Are you ready to TOTALLY SURRENDER?  Ask yourself these important questions:

Am I spending the time that I should with The Lord?

How much am I disobeying God's Word?

What are the areas of my life that I still live the way I want to in?

What have I read in The Bible that is against God, yet I still support or I've not taken a stand against?

Am I using my tongue to speak the opposite of what God says in His Word?

I know God is measuring my Love for Him by my obedience . . . SO, HOW MUCH DO I REALLY LOVE THE LORD, HOW MUCH AM I OBEYING HIM?

     Church, others are depending on us being able to be used in the Double Anointing!  There are those who need a touch and manifestation of God!  Get Before God and allow Him to show you where you are with your Love (Your Obedience) with Him!

      And if you've never given Him your life, don't let another year pass you by without Living your life and Giving your life to Him!  Just say these words and mean them with all your heart.
Jesus, I'm coming to You for I am tired of trying to do life without you. I surrender to You, Sir! Please forgive me of all of the wrong that I've done, come into my life and save me.  I decide to make You The Lord and Master of my life. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit in Jesus Name, Amen!

      If you said those words and meant them with all your heart, you are born again and in right standing with God!  Let us know here at JCM, we want to rejoice with you and send you some FREE RESOURCES to help you get started or re-started with your walk with God!  The measure of our love is being seen by God through our obedience.  If we REALLY LOVE HIM, we MUST OBEY HIM!  Take some time to look at your LOVE for HIM. Take some time and look at your OBEDIENCE!  Do not be discouraged Church, our finest hours are ahead of us and beginning to manifest right now.  It is time for the Double Anointing to manifest within us and through our lives.  God is watching for the ones that will give their all . . . that will live in TOTAL SURRENDER!  Are You One of Those Who Will?  Until next month . . .
