>> The Heresy of Niceness.

This is a must see. The danger of being careful about Christian Image.

Click here for the video clip of Rebecca Pippert speaking on the Subject: "The Heresy of Niceness."

Ananias and Sapphira secretly indulged in carefulness about their Christian 'image'.

They died in the presence of the transparent power of the Lord (because of their lie), in the midst of his resurrection empowered Church. [Acts 5:1-10.]

Because of Spirit dryness in the Church today, all Image judgment if not expedited here, will not fail the spot light at the finish line, and the process of rewards accounting on that day. No fake enters there.

Every believer that has a fierce struggle with sin and acknowledges such before the Lord in a genuine fight to win through with him, without the projection of false image will be perfected and "overcome at the last" [Genesis 49:19.] Praise the Lord!


Psalm 92:5 (KJV)
"O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep."

Exodus 23:30 (KJV)
"By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land."

|| Futile Labours. ||

O what futile labours are involved as we try to increase our spirituality. The last words penned by Peter were ..... "But grow in grace and the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and ever." [2 Peter 3:18.]

Spiritual power is by grace. The word of Jehovah to Israel was that .... "I will drive them out .... until thou be increased". it is him! "Behold God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and song, he also IS BECOME MY SALVATION" [Isaiah 12:2.]

Is our expectation that we will grow spiritually as we undertake solid achievements in various realms of spiritual exercise?

How much enthusiasm we sometimes begin some programe of spiritual enterprise and after much weariness come up empty and lack the "Crown of Life" that James talks about that the Lord gives to all those who "endure temptation" because they "Love him" [James 1:12.]

|| We Automatically Decrease as the

Revelation of His Greatness Increases. ||

Increase was experienced by John the baptist who said ..... "He must increase, but I must decrease." [John 3:30.]

Notice that John the baptist didn't say "I must decrease then he will increase".

How wonderfully simple. The increase of vision of the glory of Christ (you cannot know the Lord and not know the glory) is the 'driving' force of the decrease of us! Praise the Lord!

From our text .... "I will drive them out" and increase will come and Israel would inherit the land. As the increase of our encounters with Christ happens, that is the "driving" force that decreases the "I" in us.

The Lord encourage our quest to more and more experience the Lord revealing himself to us causing a corresponding decrease of ourselves as he increases.

Go all out to Know the Lord Jesus Christ in the Word of his greatness and Glory, to see him, behold as in a glass his glory [2 Corinthians 3:18.] and the changes that will happen will be as in our text, a "drive" down of self and a giving way with joy to the glorious increase of Him!

Look, listen and enjoy the much loved Gospel singer of Chicago - Jessy Dixon singing - "Gone". This song is about the resurrection of Christ and his glorious triumph over the grave.

Jessy went home to be with the Lord in 2011 at the age of 73.

Notice the expressions on the faces, and the tears, at the thrill of this Glorious truth of the song.
