Receive Basar Teaching - fresh, full, rosy and cheerful

May these pages be a continual source of good spiritual food to nourish your soul in these days of spiritual famine. Sadly there is little teaching on the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His own at the Rapture, but that is what the Scriptures teach and what I believe.

Driving on the A36 recently, to my horror I watched a female pheasant walk right into the path of a lorry. It had plenty of time to stop or turn back, but, no, it continued on its doomed journey into the great wheels. Its feathers exploded in a ball and then its carcase lay on the road in front of me. Then I thought how many people are just as deaf and blind and insensitive to approaching disaster... Don't be one of them! Heed the Warnings, Receive the Teachings and be Saved!!

If you would like to receive brochures listing Basar Blessings books on the Book of Revelation, Church teaching, including on the Blood of Christ and Hebrews, please email me with your contact details at contact@basar-blessings.org. I look forward to hearing from you!

I have recently designed a little booklet "Read the Bible In One Year". You may have a copy free by emailing me at contact@basar-blessings.org. Get into the daily habit of reading God's Word - I only recommend the King James Bible! - and also the records of Calvary.

Also published on Kindle and in paper-back form is an exciting novel "Beyond The Trumpet Sound". Beginning on the day of the Rapture, the story takes the reader right through the progression of the world to the One World Government, the rise of the Antichrist, and the Plagues unto the Coming to Earth to Reign of the Lord Jesus Christ. This book gives a unique insight into the both timescale and the horrors of those left under this prophesied time of Judgment. Please go to http://www.beyondthetrumpetsound.co.uk to order.

Know The Power In the Word of God For Your Daily Life

How much Power does the Word of God generate in your life? What effect does it have on your daily living? The example of the life of Samson is that when he obeyed God's Word he remained strong. If you want spiritual strength to overcome the world, the flesh and the Devil, you must keep the Word of God alive in your life!!

The Word of God is God’s Personal Communication with fallen Man. Now that Jesus Christ has come and died, shedding His Blood to wash away our sins, the Word of God keeps each believer clean from sinning again. That is One Powerful Application of the Word of God in a believer’s life, isn’t it ?!

“Now are ye clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.” [John 15:3]

Clean – no more unbelief,
no more doubt,
no more fear, or fearfulness,
no more guilt,
no more lust,
no more coveting,
no more selfishness,
no more arrogance,
no more pride,
no more self-centredness,
no more self-justification,
no more worldly desires,
no more fixations with this world,
no more worldly habits,
no more sense of lack, or loss
no more unclean words or habits,
no more spiritual blindness,
no more spiritual deafness,
no more lack of sensitivity to the movings of the Holy Spirit,
no more slothfulness,
no more complacency,
no more being self-opinionated
no more living for one’s self,
no more spiritual bondage,
no more being deceived, by Satan or men
no more deceitfulness,
no more hatred,
no more lies, or living a lie
no more hypocrisy
no more unrighteous anger,
no more lack of confidence in God your Father and in God’s Word,
no more listening to wrong doctrine,
no more depression,
no more bitterness,
no more frustrations,
no more foolishness,
no more insincerity,
no more deep sadness or sorrow
no more regret
NO MORE UNBELIEF etc etc etc… - CLEAN !!

These are the things we all need to ensure we are free from; that we are Clean by the Word of God.
So, if and when we are clean from these things – that is the Power of the Word in us!

The Word of God IS Powerful, regardless of how it is seen or understood or believed by Man!

It will accomplish that which it says, because GOD said it! We see that as being very obvious in Creation. The LORD spoke and it was so.  The Spoken Word at Creation brought all things into being from nothing!  The Prophets and the Psalms give many descriptions of the Power of that Spoken Word.  All life depended and depends upon that Word.  Nothing happens or continues to be without that Word! See Colossians 1:17, “… by Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) all things consist”. All is held together by His Word; everything continues in order, even despite the terrible effects of sin on our world.

Old Testament – for all time and Eternity…
Isaiah 55:8 – 13     “…. For as the rain … v11 So shall My word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it…”

New Testament – since the Covenant of the Blood of Jesus Christ …
Hebrews 4:12     “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
VERY Powerful!

But here we want to understand the Practical Application of the Power of the Word in our lives …

If someone comes to Christ through faith in the spoken Word of God, delivered through the preached Written Word, that soul believes – or should believe – he is already forgiven of all his sin, and he should repent of living up to that point without Christ and the Word of God in his life.

That soul is born again – born from above – by the Word of God (the water) and the Spirit of God (the Holy Spirit) “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” [John 3:5] 
James 1:18 “Of His own will begat He us with the word of truth …”
1 Peter 1:23 “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God…”

The new birth is therefore being explained in different ways: by the Lord Jesus, and by James and Peter by the Holy Spirit.  Water, Truth, Seed.
The Water washes – cleans and refreshes;
The Truth illuminates, shows up the lies and deceit in our flesh and in the world through Satan;
The Seed grows and produces Fruit – the increasing knowledge in our hearts of the formation of the Life of the Lord Jesus Christ Crucified and Risen and Exalted in our lives.

(Christ has been given to us whole!! We receive His Life – the new Life to us. We have His heart and His mind to operate in our lives, by the Holy Spirit.  We don’t receive a little bit of Him at a time throughout our lives until we die or are taken Home when He comes.

So the Word of God grows in us, instructing us of what we have already, and increasing our faith to believe it, receive it and live it out.)

The Scripture, “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” [Romans 10:17] then is fulfilled in that believing soul. 

Isn’t that Power?!  Every time a soul humbles himself before the Word of God to obey the Call to come to Christ Crucified, the Promise of God in Christ, written in the Word, is fulfilled in that life.  Only the Word of God can Call us to Repentance and Regeneration and Redemption.

When teaching in a seminar I was moved by the Holy Spirit to say, ‘If you (or any preacher/teacher) fail to preach the Word by the Holy Ghost to reveal Christ as He actually is, and cause people to follow HIM, and His Ways and in accordance to His Will, then you or they are not making disciples of Christ, but of your / their own selves’…

Only the Word of God in a person keeps that soul clean, and being formed in the Image of Christ by the Holy Spirit. So we need to always encourage those in our charge to read, meditate, understand, believe and live by the Written Word of God.

That is the Power of the Word of God! Jesus Christ, by His complete and total Obedience, has fulfilled the Word of God in Himself – in that sinless, now terribly wounded, human Body.  That is why His New Name is called “The Word of God” [Revelation 19:12 – 13, .2:17, 3:13]

God’s Written Word and the Living Crucified Christ are integral with each other. They cannot be separated!! It is IN Him, in His wounds, in His flesh and in His bones!!

So that is the Practicality of our / your spending much time in the Word of God, and encouraging your flocks and family members to do the same.  We are to live “by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” [Matthew 4:4b].  If for no other reason that Jesus Himself lived like that!

Also, regarding the Holy Spirit – because Christ is now on the Right Hand of God on God’s Throne, the Holy Spirit has been sent to comfort, strengthen and activate us in the Life of Christ.

See John 14:16 – 17.  The Holy Spirit is meant to be IN us.  We are not meant to speak to, or teach the Bible, or pray for others without the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit alone is our Teacher in the Word of God [John 14:26]

(2 Peter 1:19 – 21 – “private interpretation” means interpreting the Scriptures outside of God’s knowledge – as in our own private closet where God is not invited!!)

So the Holy Spirit and the Written Word of God also are integral with each other.  They cannot be separated.  The Holy Ghost does not speak any other language to Christ’s disciples!!

I come now to a very practical issue regarding your understanding the Power of the Word of God in your every day lives…

Psalm 34:8 – 10     “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in Him. 9. O fear the LORD, ye His saints: for there is no want to them that fear Him. 10. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.”

Are you truly “blessed” – full of the deep and full happiness of knowing that the Word which proclaimed Christ risen from the dead is true, and active in your lives, providing everything you need, no matter what, and at all times, no matter when… ?

Romans 8:32     “He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?”

If this is the Word of God, do you believe that you do have all things WITH Christ ?
John 20:29b    “… blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”

We, in our generation, have not physically seen the Lord Jesus Christ.  We have believed the Word of God that revealed Him to us – His Eternal Origin, His Coming, His Ministry, His Suffering and Sacrificial Death, His Resurrection, His Ascension to the Right Hand of God, His Office of High Priest, His Coming Again for His saints, His Opening the Book of Settlement as The Lamb and the Judge, His Coming to Earth as Judge, and His Eternal Reign on the New Earth, in the Holy City.

Our belief, our faith, in all that He is and in all that He has done, for God and for Man, causes us to be in that most blessed state, having all sufficiency in all things…

So, going back to Psalm 34:8 – 10 and Romans 8:32

What do I as a single retired and disabled woman have to give – what do you know??! – The Word of God! My duty and ministry is to ENCOURAGE, to STRENGTHEN the saints of God in THE WORD OF GOD, to stir up and create in every heart a True and Pure Vision of the Lord Jesus Christ as The Lamb… so that the young or old, the rich or poor, PROVE the Power of that Word every day and in every hard circumstance.

You must SEE that CHRIST HIMSELF is your all in all.

Let the miracles flow!!  Let faith loose!! Let the Promises be fulfilled in your lives!!

Remember that amazing verse about it being impossible for God to lie because of His own Oath?!! [Hebrews 6:18]

WITH Him, you have EVERYTHING you need.  No lack, no sense of want.  You must not think of yourselves as being in desperate need.  Instead, you must look to The Lamb – the One, the ONLY One – who has made it possible for God to POUR out ALL His Wealth and Goodness over you, until you say, ‘Stop, Lord, I have enough. I have all I need’ !! 

Remember you are deeply and greatly loved by God your Father, because you show deep devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ, to Him personally, and to His Cause in the Gospel…  Remember you are kings and priests unto God and unto Christ, through His poured out Blood…

That will be the power of the Word of God IN you.  Full and abundant faith in That Full and Abundant Life in Christ Jesus.

May the Lord our God, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ “fill you with all joy and peace in believing”…. [Romans 15:13]
