Live Behind The Veil
Summary: "Live Behind The Veil" is an atmosphere created by men and women of God speaking in the Holy Spirit the Father's Word. Spiritual and temporal topics are addressed openly and without respect to political correctness or religious restraint.

God is our Father, and He wants to relate with us. Take your will and set it on the Lord. He wants our all from a freewill offering. Invite Him into what we are doing at; work, play, family etc. Balance your many responsibilities so that you have time with the Lord. Show notes: • If you are going to walk with God, you are going to spend time with Him. • Tithe your time the same as you would tithe your money. • The cry of our hearts is to give Him our all. • It is out of a heart of love. • It is not a duty or an obligation. • Take your will and set your spirit to be doing what God is leading you to do. • It is our whole life walking before God. • There is a balance, He understands you have other responsibilities throughout your day. • Take short or small times to contact the Lord. • It comes from Loving the Lord with all your heart. • He will never waste a minute of your time. • He will bring you to a balance , to a maturity.

What is Faith? “Faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ” Romans 10:17 Fear is the opposite of faith Faith is not the product of ones thinking or emotions Show Notes: • Disappointments are believing in something that is not faith. • Remember Satan uses the Word of God to deceive or distract us. • What is God trying to say to us? “Today if you hear My voice do not harden your heart”. • The truth out of time is as good as a lie. • The Holy Spirit has to confirm it to you. • Find what you are believing for in the Scriptures. • "Witness" of the word is your experience of that word. • I open my heart to listen and wait for Him to speak. • Faith is imparted to you by the Holy Spirit. • You should be having experiences with the Lord; You should be having some fulfilment in your life. References: Romans 10:17 17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. Luke 4:9-12 9 And he led Him to Jerusalem and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here; 10 for it is written, ‘HE WILL COMMAND HIS ANGELS CONCERNING YOU TO GUARD YOU,’ 11 and, ‘ON their HANDS THEY WILL BEAR YOU UP, SO THAT YOU WILL NOT STRIKE YOUR FOOT AGAINST A STONE.’ ” 12 And Jesus answered and said to him, “It is said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST.’ ” Genesis 3:1 1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?” Numbers 14:43-45 43 “For the Amalekites and the Canaanites will be there in front of you, and you will fall by the sword, inasmuch as you have turned back from following the LORD. And the LORD will not be with you.” 44 But they went up heedlessly to the ridge of the hill country; neither the ark of the covenant of the LORD nor Moses left the camp. 45 Then the Amalekites and the Canaanites who lived in that hill country came down, and struck them and beat them down as far as Hormah. Hebrews 3:7 7 Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says, “TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, Hebrews 11:1 1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. James 2:17, 18, 20, 26 17 Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself. 18 But someone may well say, “You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.” 20 But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless? 26 For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead. John chapters 14, 15, 16, 17 Quotes: • "What is God trying to get through to you”? • “Today, If you hear my voice, don't not harden your heart." • "Have the Holy Spirit confirm to your heart that it is a word from God". • "I have had an experience in God". • "True Faith comes from God " Take away: Get down to the real depth of your heart in what you believe. Start looking at each thing that you believe, one by one and ask yourself; what am I going to do as an action to express faith in what I believe. What has been spoken to me by the Holy Spirit?
Where is our focus? Everything comes at all of us to cause distractions and draw our focus away from what the Holy Spirit is saying. Many a millennia have past and no one has made this world unified or a “paradise” There is the one thing we are instructed to do: Seek first His Kingdom. Show Notes: • There is such confusion in Christianity about what is the truth. • What is our focus to be on? • What is the Holy Spirit speaking today. • Each person is deciding in their own heart. • God's Kingdom is not coming from a human realm. • The Kingdom is coming from the Spirit realm. • “Seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness". • Tomorrow has its own issues, do not worry about it. • The only effective way to change is through Jesus Christ. • It is so exciting to see God get what he wants. References: Hebrews 3:7 7 Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says, “TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, Genesis 33:13, 14 13 But he said to him, “My lord knows that the children are frail and that the flocks and herds which are nursing are a care to me. And if they are driven hard one day, all the flocks will die. 14 “Please let my lord pass on before his servant, and I will proceed at my leisure, according to the pace of the cattle that are before me and according to the pace of the children, until I come to my lord at Seir.” Matthew 3:2 2 “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Acts 28:28 28 “Therefore let it be known to you that this salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles; they will also listen.” Matthew 6:31-34 31 “Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32 “For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 34 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Acts 13:22 22 “After He had removed him, He raised up David to be their king, concerning whom He also testified and said, ‘I HAVE FOUND DAVID the son of Jesse, A MAN AFTER MY HEART, who will do all My will.’ Ephesians 5:26 26 so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, Revelations 3:8 8 ‘I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Quotes: • "what is the Holy Spirit speaking today"? • "Where is your awareness"? • Where is your focus"? • "God in his grace is perfecting us" • "It's better, to be honest and humble ourselves." Take away: We are letting God develop us and create us according to His will. God's Kingdom is not coming from a human realm.
What are the little things the Holy Spirit is asking of us? By being obedient, the Holy Spirit reveals the Christ in us. Disobedience is sin, the wages of which are death. “He who does the will of my Father who is in Heaven.....” Show notes: • The simplicity of obedience , the small acts of obedience to the Holy Spirit brings the awareness of Christ in you. • What are the little things? • Put the scriptures up to your life as a plumb line. • If the Holy Spirit speaks to you even small things, do them, It is simple, be obedient when the Holy Spirit speaks. • The father chastens every son whom He receives. • When you are obedient in the small things, more will be entrusted to you. • Christ will reveal more of Himself to you. • It is the helper, the Holy Spirit who will help you into all things.

Matthew 12:50 50 “For whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother.” Romans 6:23 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 16:26 26 but now is manifested, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the eternal God, has been made known to all the nations, leading to obedience of faith; 1 Peter 1:22 22 Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart, Colossians 1:27 27 to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Hebrews 3:7, 8 7 Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says, “TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, 8 DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS AS WHEN THEY PROVOKED ME, AS IN THE DAY OF TRIAL IN THE WILDERNESS, 1 John 2:17 17 The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever. Hebrews 12:9 9 Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live?

Confirmation is like gathering faith. Confirmation is not what comes from what one thinks. If He spoke it, He will confirm it. Integrity is a part of confirmation. Show Notes: • Let the Word be confirmed by the mouth of two 2 or three. • The Holy spirit is speaking, how do we learn His voice? • Act on what you hear, or He will quit talking with you. • It is a ministry to the body. • The Lord will be faithful to get you the confirmation you need. • Lack of confirmation is not a necessarily a “no”. • His word has within itself the ability to see it fulfilled. References: Matthew 18:16 16 “But if he does not listen to you, take one or two more with you, so that BY THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES EVERY FACT MAY BE CONFIRMED. Mark 16:20 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the signs that followed. 2 Corinthians 13:1 1 This is the third time I am coming to you.

Take away: I have to be faithful to what God is saying. Find out if the Lord is speaking to you.
The Body of Christ is not just in one denomination or another. By the diversity of each individual part, this makes up the entire body of Christ and Jesus is the head. Christ is not divided. All parts make up the whole. Show Notes: • Christ is coming forth in a many membered body. • God wants to give us all things. • I am learning to enjoy the diversity that exists in others. • Love is more important than being right. • God has given a gift of other people. Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 12:14, 14 For the body is not one member, but many. Ephesians 4:16, 16 from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. Matthew 24:23, 24 23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe him. 24 “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.

Have we become to smart regarding our relationship with God/Jesus? Thank you, Father, for giving us the Holy Spirit to teach us. Do we have a drive to know who God the Father is?

Show Notes: • We grow into a place in the spirit where the Father and the Son comes and takes up their abode in us. • Our worship is led by the holy spirit to touch God. • I do not think there is anything in God we ever outgrow. • The Holy spirit is revealing the truth, the son, Father to us. • Send a blessing, ten times better than a prayer. • The Holy spirit is our teacher. • We worship in spirit and in truth.

Both Adam and Jesus were “Sons” of God. His desire is to be our Father, “Our Father, who art in Heaven...” God’s love is far above anything we as humans understand. God’s family is a truly functional family, we want to eliminate the “religious” thinking of who God is and find the experiential relationship with our Father. Show notes: • When a person accepts Jesus as their Lord and savior, this begins the relationship of the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit in our life. • We reach the Father going through Christ. He is the only door. • Your relationship with the Father is so special, so precious , so inviting, peaceful, it ministers the fruit of the Spirit. • We come just as we are, believing that He will receive me and love me because I am His son. • Human relationships and love dry up without a connection to the source of love. • Our hopes, aspirations, and dreams will turn to ashes without the foundation of the Lordship of Jesus, and people will argue with this statement but look at the world today.

Satan is jealous of God, the Father, and wants to take all of His glory. He has painted a false image of God to make Him out to be “mad at us” and afar off where we are unable to reach Him. We are learning to become aware of just how much God loves us, how close He is and wants a relationship more than we can comprehend. Show Notes: • Satan has created an illusion of who God the Father is and our unawareness of God is Satanically contrived • His drive is to discourage us from having a relationship or even want one with the Father, the veil Satan has created is very thin, but has prevented our seeing Him • Since the beginning, He is our Father • He, God, is the most loving Father • He wants to give more than we can ask or think • He wants a relationship more than we are aware of References: Matthew 23:37 37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her!

John 1:1, 2, 14 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. cABPsKcROHDyBhAGlT53

Samuel!” And Samuel said, “Speak, for Your servant is listening.” John 14:16, 26 16 “I will ask the Father, and He will give you another a Helper, that He may be with you forever; 26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. 2 Timothy 1:5 5 For I am mindful of the sincere faith within you, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am sure that it is in you as well.

His Joy is more than just being happy, more than just feeling good We are able to appropriate His Joy to be our strength When Jesus went to the cross, it was the “joy set before Him” that gave Him the strength to suffer the beatings and cross experience.

How is the Holy Spirit teaching us to be evangelists today? How do we end the stigma of what was in turning so many away? Show Notes: • God wants you to witness, although it may be different than what we have been taught previously • One preacher will speak a thousand words to bring in one convert, those during the New Testament church age spoke one word and thousands were saved • In the New Testament church age, no one went out to talk about themselves, but to talk about Jesus, the Christ • As we become as He is, then we can impart to others who He is • It is about who we are, not a doctrine References: Acts 5:42 42 And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they kept right on teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ.
