Micah: People Willingly Come

God's Flesh: People came to Jesus of their own volition. Jesus never invited them or promoted his meetings. They just crowded around him wherever he was, pursued him, and that with the Pharisees and Law teachers. When you’re genuinely God’s flesh on earth, you don’t need to promote yourself or your church. God makes things happen so that people notice.

In Micah’s time, God told him that when God’s mountain becomes established, people would decide to “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob” (Micah 4.2). In Jesus’ day this was fulfilled initially. One day the Greeks traveled far and wide just to see Jesus (Jn.12). And He said this happened because the hour had come for the Son to be glorified—or for God’s mountain to be established as chief. This cannot happen, said my Jesus, “Unless a kernel of wheat falls and dies.”

Nations deciding on their own to go to God’s house cannot happen by man’s efforts, even with his church programs and activities, no matter how he prays for them. It can only happen when they die with Christ and are taken out of the picture, and only Christ lives in them to establish God’s mountain alone as chief among mountains. Without dying, they do their church ministries full of themselves and their denominations, establishing other mountains.

As it is, most churches drag people to other mountains claiming them to be God’s. If it’s not God’s, you will always find yourself busy trying to get people into your church and making them stay. And if they stay, they have other motives, though religious, except to learn God’s ways that they may walk in His paths—or be like God. If it’s God’s mountain, people willingly come and stay, with no other motive except: “God will teach us his ways. So we may walk in His paths.” When God’s flesh on earth is consummated, all this will come to pass.

How to Know If a Ministry is Failing in God's Eyes

It's easy to see if a ministry is really failing. Remember, God is spirit. The only way to please him is in spirit and in truth. You cannot please God by your church building, church income, membership size or Sunday worship programs.

Actually, the ministry Jesus showed us in the bible was so simple. It's super simple, in fact. It's mainly on preaching, miraculous healing, and discipleship. Just these three. We don't have to add anything to this. Jesus did only these three and he did well. He pleased the Father to the max.

Preaching

You don't have to be a titled preacher to do this. Just share the Word. All you need is knowledge of the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. These two equip you to the max. The Word of God is God breathed "so that the man of God may be adequate, fully equipped for every good work," [2 Timothy 3.17].

You see the words, "fully eq…

Micah: Statutes of Omri and Practices of Ahab

It begins with the statutes of Omri (Micah 6.16). Omri was a follower of the evil ways of Jeroboam (1Kings16). He laid down the statutes (or doctrines) and Ahab his son applied and developed them. These are all against being God's flesh on earth.

Omri’s statutes were simple: they were based on wicked and corrupt ways as King Jeroboam did them. How did Jeroboam do them? Simply by doing God’s will in man’s ways. He disobeyed the prophet Ahijah who told him to do everything in God’s ways alone: “If you do everything I command you and walk in my ways and do whatever is correct in my eyes...I will build you a dynasty...”(1Kings11).

Jeroboam grabbed God's will of kingship but did it in greed. Man's ways are nothing but greed, no matter how they try to make it look religious or spiritual or "Christian."

But because of his greed for corrupt power he did everything wicked—he did everything in man’s ways. He always “thought to himself” and not to God, and he revived the …

God as Your Stronghold

"My Life's Stronghold is God." -Ps.27
We read about it several times in the bible that God is a stronghold. Do we know what "stronghold" means? Often, we associate "stronghold" with the devil, like "the devil's stronghold." So, what do we mean by God is my stronghold? How does God become a stronghold. If you don't know what it means to have God as stronghold, that's a stronghold.
Devil as Stronghold
When a person has strong propensities to sin and evil, we say that it's due to a stronghold. And we mean that the devil's hold on that person is really strong. No matter how much that person wants to change and start going to church, he just can't. When presented with a situation that makes him choose between good and evil, he is likely to choose evil even if in his mind he wants good. If he chooses good, it'll just be for a moment---probably 5 seconds---and then be back to evil again. That's a stronghold.
