God's Son's are Servants.

Jesus came to Earth as a Servant. He humbled himself to become a man, and took on the seed of Abraham. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords came to serve, not to be served. He came to Minister to others, not to be Ministered to. He came to give up his Life, in order to give Life. This Self Sacrificing Life was our example. This is why he was Highly Exalted and given a name above all names, and Anointed to be the High Priest over our confession. He has already been through all that anyone else will ever have to go through and was Victorious over it all.

We are called to conform into his Image. We are called to Imitate Christ. Christ was a Servant. Are you conforming to that Image? Are you seeking to serve others, or praying for God to serve and bless you? What are you doing with your time to build the Kingdom? I here teachings on God wanting to bless us and give us prosperity. Many Christians think that they are entitled to be blessed, yet they have never Served the Lord a day in their Life. Serving the Lord means serving your fellow man, Humbling yourself to meet the needs of others in Need.

Jesus tells us in John 13: 4- 17 that this is the Path of Blessing ( living bible translation) The Lord also told us In John 12:26, that where he is that's where his Servants need to be. Where is JESUS? He is where ever there is someone in need. Someone who needs to be served. That's where Jesus is, and that's where his disciples are. So if you are conforming to his Image, then you need to find out where Jesus is, and be found there as his Servant, meeting those needs.

The Greater Works that God wants to do through us, can only be done through a Humble Servant. Why do christians think that God wants to bless someone who never works for him or spends any time with him where he is, conforming to his Image?


Does your job pay you if you don't come to work? Do you get paid for doing nothing? Nothing is what most Christians do towards being like Jesus. They sit in the pew once a week and perhaps they tithe, and think that this entitles them to be blessed? They have never served a day in their life, or ever considered humbling themselves.

God is looking for those who want to be where Jesus is. These are the True Sons of God. The Sons of God are the Servants of All. They are conforming to his Image, so that the Father can do Greater Works through them.


Servants who are serving the Lord can be found on their knees, washing someone's feet. This is an example of what servants did in Jesus day. Only servants washed feet, and they did it on their knees. It was a very dirty Job, since people wore sandals and walked in dirt. Jesus showed us that the one who wanted to be the Leader, was the Servant of All.

PROPHETIC WORD

HIGHER GROUND

While praying the Lord begin to speak to me. I saw him walking up a steep mountain trail. He had a Shepherds Staff in one hand, and he was carrying a Lamb in the other hand.

I was right beside him and other sheep where pressing in to follow. HE SAID, MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE AND FOLLOW. I'M LEADING MY FLOCK TO HIGHER GROUND, SO STAY CLOSE AND FOLLOW ME.

Then he sat down on a rock and we all gathered around him as close as possible. He then said, THOSE WHO DON'T FOLLOW ARE LIKE SHEEP TO THE SLAUGHTER.

So we moved in closer as he then sent out Sheep Dogs to warn those who where straying and wandering in the Lower Pastures. The Dogs where his PROPHETS. Telling the Flock to move to Higher Ground. They where running around the Flock trying to move them all towards the Higher Path.

We where waiting for more to be gathered in before moving on. It was a very High and narrow place, so the sheep where all moving closer and closer together and some of us where sitting on the Lords Lap and around his feet, to make more room for those coming up.

We could see the Dogs working very hard , still herding in more sheep as they ran about Barking at them.

Jesus is Shepherding his own Flock. He has Trained his Own Dogs. When they Barked the sheep would hear him calling and they would then listen and return to the Fold.

Many who have followed close are now waiting for those stray ones to hear his Voice and Follow.

Those who where listening to his Voice are content to just be close to him, Just watching, and waiting, content in his care.

He is gathering his Flock , moving them to Higher Ground

But those who don't hear him calling, will be left for the slaughter.

THE BRIGHT AND MORNING-STAR

Re 2:28 And I will give him the morning star. Re 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star.

Lu 1:78 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the day spring from on high hath visited us,

Lu 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and [in] the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

2 Pe 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.
