"Legacy"

Life Styles:
 (Only one will start producing an eternal legacy.)

 

     Let me start with some brief remarks about the most productive life style anyone can ever have but at the same time one that most people never acquire. It is not a life style shaped by religion (Act. 26:5) or worldly accomplishments (Phl 3:4-10), but by an ever deepening relationship with the God of everything. People who choose this life style are continually blessed as they grow in their ability to trust God by exercising the faith He willing makes available to the entire world. (Rom. 12:3) Their surroundings here on earth increasingly become patches of life and hope, not only for themselves but many others as well. However, this life style is one which must be consciously pursued day-in and day-out. (1 Co. 10:12) (Heb. 10:23) For starters, it can only be embarked upon by first receiving from God a new spirit and a new heart. (Eze. 36:26) We receive this new spirit and heart by confessing Jesus Christ as Lord. (Rom. 10:9) This then enables us to start living this incredible life style as we gain knowledge by studying the word of God and then start applying that knowledge through the power of the Holy Spirit to each decision we make in life. (Eph. 1:15-19) This knowledge is not gained by just reading the bible. What we read must be interpreted through the understanding and wisdom of the Holy Spirit. (Jhn. 16:13) As this happens our thoughts gradually become transformed to think less like the rest of the world and more and more like God would have us think. (Rom. 12:2) As we become more able to recognize and choose God's council over our own errant thoughts then the appropriate actions will follow. (Pro. 16:25) (Pro. 19:21) This is a life long learning process. The more we follow what I am saying here, the more powerful the results will become but no Christian has ever perfected this life style here on earth. (Rom. 7:18-23) Nevertheless, as we are able to make more and more right choices based on the word of God, the events in our lives will begin to bring more and more favorable results along with more and more of God's peace. As we persevere and change more and more in the way we think, we increasingly become the catalyst for many profound happenings to take place punctuated by many miracles. (Phl. 3:13-16) (Mar. 16:16-18) The entire world basks in the light of Christians who choose to live this life style because God's favor is on this remnant of believers.

    Nations are blessed according to how this remnant is treated. The more freedom given to the remnant, the more blessed in the natural tangible things of this world that nation will become. The more tyrannical a nation becomes toward this remnant, the more evil that nation will bring upon itself. Great societies like America have been able to prosper and expand civilization in a natural context for only one reason. It is because Americans in the past have not restricted the freedom of the remnant to live and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is within the tenants of this gospel that all other freedoms reside. Yet, the world does not understand this principle nor does it understand the life style choice of the remnant. It's a downright foolish way to live in the minds of most people. (1 Cor.1:18) (1 Cor. 2:14) Often times people become extremely offended by anyone who would dare live this way. Even most Christians do not choose to live this way. In the bible one of the greatest examples of a person who followed this life style is Paul. Consequently, Paul's works on earth will shine as a beacon throughout the ages and continue to build an everlasting legacy for him in Christ but many influential minds of his day believed he was crazy. (Act. 26:24) This life style will also produce the same results today for all those who choose to live this way. It will build a legacy for each of us who follow this path and yet many of those who associate with us will think we are at least just a few bubbles off center. I repeat again, only a remnant of the Christian community, at any one time in history, has chosen to consistently follow this life style. The vast majority of Christians, including leadership, never continue the journey. 

     There are several major reasons why this happens. Fear, false teaching, improper soul ties, demonic oppression, lack of knowledge and idols (Idol's created by our worldly minded desires for certain earthly possessions and influence) are just some of these reasons. You see, it is only the Holy Spirit who is capable of leading us into the needed truth necessary to start living an eternally successful life and that life starts as soon as we turn the reins over to Him. However, The Holy Spirit won't make anyone follow Him against their will. Without Him it is impossible to grow in understanding of the truth. This understanding cannot be gained by just reading the bible. It cannot be gained by just listening to the teaching of others. It's a very narrow road that can only be followed by the leading of the Holy Spirit. Many Christians who will enjoy eternal life in the presence of God still choose not to listen to the Holy Spirit while living here on earth. Therefore, their lives, for the most part, look no different from the rest of the world. The book "Legacy" is a potent testimony displaying the awesome power of God in turning around the life of a Christian loser who finally chose to become a winner by simply turning his life over to the Holy Spirit of God. I hope this testimony helps other Christians do the same.
