Nr. 427:

How to know that one has a healthy spiritual service or live in a delusion!

There is one thing that is more important than anything to be able to serve God, it's a live morally and ethically for the font. Room is thus the most crucial. Joseph in the Old Testament had his faults, but his moral and ethical standard was at the height of the Lord Jesus Christ and is thus the largest example of Jesus in the Bible. Here in the illustration

The main reason for a having a spiritual true ministry is not what gifts and recognition you have, but on moral and personal morality, ethics and integrity!

Jesus talked about who is the greatest in the kingdom of God in the Sermon on the Mount: Matt. 5. 19 Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But he who does them and teaches others to do the same, shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Sermon on the New Testament constitution is valid for all believers today!

Jesus' teaching was simple and clear: "he who does them and teaches others to do the same, shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." These are the commands we find in the law of Moses, but in the New Testament. There are only four things of Moses we as believers today must keep:

Acts 15. 28 The Holy Spirit and we have decided not to add any burden you with anything beyond the following requirements: 29 You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality. If ye take heed of such things, it will do well. Farewell!

I believe in the gifts!

I have written about spiritual gifts more seats. Also on healing and the supernatural. Here something what I've written: Just as many in the church in Corinth was sick, frail and died before time, God's people there today. Sickness is from Satan, and all this overcame Jesus on the cross! The Word of God that by His stripes we are healed, not just to experience it later 1 Peter 2:24 He who bore our sins in His body on the tree, that we might avdø of our sins and live for righteousness: by whose stripes you were healed. When Isaiah renders this word he says that by his stripes we are healing, as Peter says we are healed. At Calvary's sacrificial death, all believers healed purely objectively. It is for us to take out of our wealth and healing we have in Christ Jesus NOW!

But it is our purity in life, our ministry and Christian will be tested on, not what gifts and progress we have! How then test whether a person has a true spiritual gift? There are several aspects but the most important is his purity of life, his holiness. Or lack of holiness!

Joseph - the biggest model of Jesus throughout the Old Testament. All because of His holiness and purity

1 Genesis 39 1. Joseph was brought down to Egypt. Potiphar, an Egyptian who was officer of Pharaoh and captain of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there. 2 The LORD was with Joseph and gave him success. He lived in the house of his Egyptian master. 3 The Lord saw that his Lord was with him and let him succeed in everything he did. 4 Joseph won favor with his master and his servant. Potiphar put him to rule his own house, and let him take care of everything he owned. 5 And from the time that the Egyptian set him over his house and everything he owned, the Lord blessed his house because of Joseph. Lord's blessing was upon all that he had, both in the house and in the field. 6 He let Joseph take care of everything he owned, and is not worried about anything except the food he ate. Joseph was shapely and beautiful. 7 Some time after it happened that the lord wife roll their eyes at him. "Lie with me," she said. 8 But he refused and said to her: "Look, my master does not need to worry about anything in the house, he has let me take care of everything. 9 He is not greater in this house than I am. He has not denied me anything except you, because you are his wife. How would I do something so evil and sin against God? "10 she spoke to Joseph day after day, but he did not listen to her and would not sleep with her or be with her. 11 Then it happened one day that he came into the house to do his work. None of the people were inside the house. 12 And she caught him by his garment, saying, "Lie with me" But he ran out of the house and left the jacket to remain in her hands. 13 When she saw that he left his garment to remain in her hands, and even ran out, 14 she called to house people and said: "Look! My husband has been in the house a Hebrew that makes us laugh. He came to me and wanted to sleep with me, but I shouted as loud as I could. 15 And when he heard that I began to cry, he left his cloak remain with me and ran away. " 16 Then she took care of his cloak to his master came home. 17 She told him the same story: "That Hebrew slave you brought to us, came to me and would make me laugh. 18 But when I began to cry, he let his cloak remain with me and ran away. " 19 Joseph's master was angry when he heard what his wife said. "This is your slave did to me," she said. 20 He took Joseph and put him in prison where the king's prisoners were confined. He was there in the prison. 21 But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him kindness. He allowed him to find favor with the prison superintendent. 22 He let Joseph take care of all the prisoners in the prison, and all that was done there. 23 superintendent himself had not supervise any of that Joseph had secured. The Lord was with Joseph. For the Lord made all he did to prosper for him.

We know this Sunday school story most, yet so informative and so copious. Joseph was given the opportunity not only to be Potiphar's right hand, but his wife's lover and seducer! Who had not said yes both. We see that it cost more to say no than yes in the first place. So it was then, so it is today. There is always more to say no to Satan than yes thanks to God, in the first place.

Joseph made a choice - before he came into temptation why he won the victory!

There are those who believe that those who win Olympic gold or WM actually wins the stadium, those who win gold have won it through the long, heavy and strenuous workouts long before they won Gold. So it is in the spiritual race track. There are those who think they can have revival in life sit and watch internet porn, when one lives in a delusion de lux. The love of money, slander and other sins were before. And it's too bad today too. God is and will remain the same, his laws and commandments likewise. Joseph had an attitude and attetyd that he had been inspired by long before he met Potiphar and his wife. When the brothers saw him as a spoiled arrogant daddy boy seemed God in and through him. It's so important to not recognize people after the flesh but after the spirit.

2 Cor. 5. 16 Therefore, we know from henceforth no man after the flesh, and we have known Christ after the flesh, as we know him, although now no longer accordingly.

The difference between a spiritual and carnal believers is when one comes up in difficult situations if a fail to cope with temptation or give up.

Proverbs 24:10 Showing you dig discouraged in the day, then your power ring.

Of course it's wonderful to be with opprakte hands to praise God. It's wonderful to be admired and honored minister. But it is not there to show whether one has the real spiritual force or not. It is when one gets squished into a corner and have no way out. How does one then?

Joseph tackled the challenge perfectly!

2 Timothy 2:22 But fly youthful lusts, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart!

Joseph had to deny himself and all his carnal desires. He had to fly youth and flesh lusts and desires. Satan tempted him with the best he had but Joseph refused and fled, "So it happened one day that he came into the house to do his work. None of the people were inside the house. And she caught him by his garment, saying, "Lie with me" But he ran out of the house and left the jacket to remain in her hands. When she saw that he left his garment to remain in her hands, and even ran away. "

Joseph stood after having done all!

From my commentaries Ephesians 6 13 Therefore take the whole armor of God, that ye may resist in the evil day and to stand after having won everything. Therefore encourage apostle believers to take God's armor on so that they can resist in the evil day (v. 13). The days are different. Some days we look back with joy, others we would like to forget. The days to come, we know nothing about, but experience shows that some will be good, the other evil. We should note that the devil is the strategist and often find a day when we feel everything is hard and heavy, when he comes with his wiles and temptations to try to cause us to fall. Especially worse for the people of God is persecution times. In our time there are many in the world who are persecuted for their Christian faith, and the world is experiencing more martyrs than any time in history. Pursuing Reading Time will culminate at the Antichrist come and the great tribulation. Therefore it is important that we take the whole armor of God, that we may be standing.

Joseph was the great example of Jesus because but his love for his purity, purity in life is what separates the chaff from the wheat.

Luke 3 16 John answered and said to them all, I indeed baptize you with water: but he comes who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to loose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire; 17 he has his winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will cleanse his barn and gather the wheat into his charge, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.

What is it that separates the wheat from the chaff?

This is an old way to produce wheat as a thrown up in the air corn and what was good was lying on the ground while the chaff took the wind. Then the good taken care of and separated from the bad. Or the bad was separated from it by value. So it is today how we pose moral and ethical aspects of our own lives first and foremost. We can not live a double life and serve the Lord, everything should be up to the light and our life must be in accordance with the scriptures. We wonder really only ourselves to lead a life that is Christ and God's word worthy. In what way do you live, when you get up in difficult situations and being tried?

Christian Today Norway is the opposite than what Joseph!

It is something I have explained again and again in my articles and commentaries how large gap that is what God's word says and how believers live in Norway and hikers. One does not see it either, when one is spiritually blind Laodiceans who needed eye ointment. May God give us all of his "eye salve" where we primarily see the plank in our own lives. So we can see sin or speck in our brother's life. We need to see both. First, keep our own path clean as Joseph. And we live as though the word of God teaches, we are great in the kingdom of God. And we teach others to live as we then live, we are "even" greater in the kingdom of God was Jesus' own teaching in the Sermon on the Mount: "Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
