Episode 22: Hearing God's Voice
Everyone has weird random thoughts that come from the spirit world. Medicine and psychology will try and explain these thoughts away as just coming from your soul. They actually deny the existence of the spirit or unseen realm. God is always speaking to us, but the devil speaks to us too. The devil spoke to and brought temptation to Jesus. He most certainly will with us. The devil will try to mask his voice using various tactics. He is an imposter. He comes as an angel of light. This means he will even mask himself as God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit or even an angel sent from God. So John tells us to test the spirits. And the way that we test them is by seeing if what they say aligns with the incarnation, that is Jesus coming in the flesh. We can also test these thoughts, feelings, visions, emotions (voices) through the good news of Jesus Christ. Paul said even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel different than the one you received, let it be accursed. The first way to discern the voice of God v. The enemy is though an intimate relationship with Jesus.My sheep here my voice'My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. '(John 10:27-28)-Fruits of the Spirit-Two trees, law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus or the law of sin and death. Obedience comes through trust and intimacy. Prudence allows us to wait on the Lord. God will make his voice clear. God speaks though gentle invitations. The devil speaks though pricking and prodding, though carrots and sticks. The devil speaks though fear. Even if we are goaded and fall for a trap, God delivers us from the trap of the fowler. There is so much grace to learn to discern the voice of God. Look at how God blessed Abraham, and even blessed all involved with Ishmael.

Episode 20: Angels and the Kingdom of God
In this message, Jacob Dunbar discusses the ascension and the coming of the Son of Man, Jesus into His Kingdom followed by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the world where we now possess the kingdom through the Holy Spirit.  Jacob then goes on to discuss the importance of partnering, interacting and ministering with the Angels of God. “I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed. (Daniel 7:13-14)But the court shall sit in judgment, and his dominion shall be taken away, to be consumed and destroyed to the end. And the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High; his kingdom shall be an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.’ (Daniel 7:26-27)Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:30)Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this that you yourselves are seeing and hearing.For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he himself says,“‘The Lord said to my Lord,“Sit at my right hand,until I make your enemies your footstool.”’Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.”Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” (Acts 2:33-39)But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, (Hebrews 12:22)Of the angels he says, “He makes his angels winds, and his ministers a flame of fire.” And to which of the angels has he ever said, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet” Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation? (Hebrews 1:5...13-14)Lift up your heads, O gates! Be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of Glory may enter! (Psalm 24:7)Jesus told the pharisees that they stand at the gates and don’t go in themselves nor do they let anyone else in. and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are the angels. (Matthew 13:39)Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Matthew 9:37)And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.  (Matthew 24:31)The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them. (Psalm 34:7)(2 Kings 6:15-17)Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him. (Matthew 4:11)See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 18:10)And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. And being in agony he prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. And when he rose from prayer, he came to the disciples and found them sleeping for sorrow, and he said to them, “Why are you sleeping? Rise and pray that you may not enter into temptation.” (Luke 22:43-45)Mat 16:27 - For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done.To visit Resurrection Ranch go to the link belowhttps://www.rezranch.comTo give go tohttps://www.rezranch.com/giveFacebookhttps://www.facebook.com/rezranch11
Episode 19: The Spirit and the Word
Mar 12 2023
Episode 19: The Spirit and the Word
The Bible is amazing and such a gift from God. Satan has been trying to outlaw, or throw out the bible since it was compiled. All scripture is God-breathed and able to be used for correction, instruction and most of all to reveal more of Jesus to us. The bible contains the foundation of our faith, that is the teaching of the Apostles. The early church dedicated themselves to the Apostles' teaching. There is so much glory and value in meditating on the scriptures. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20)The bible is not God nor is it anywhere close to equal with the Holy Spirit. The gift Jesus left us to lead us into all truth is the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit definitely uses the scriptures to reveal Jesus to us. The scriptures should be read to see more of Jesus, not as a guide book. The devil knows the bible better than any man alive and will quote it to bring condemnation, death and bondage to people. He even quoted it to Jesus. Men’s study of the scriptures through human reason has been cause for much division in the world and in the body of Christ. Spiritual truths are only discerned through the Holy Spirit. We are completely dependent upon God to understand the scriptures. (John 1:14, John 5:39-40, Luke 4:10-11, 1 Corinthians 2:14) Other verses included in this podcast...2 Corinthians 3John 14-16'And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.” ' (Luke 24:49)Then Satan stood against Israel and incited David to number Israel. So David said to Joab and the commanders of the army, “Go, number Israel, from Beersheba to Dan, and bring me a report, that I may know their number.” But Joab said, “May the Lord add to his people a hundred times as many as they are! Are they not, my Lord the king, all of them my Lord’s servants? Why then should my Lord require this? Why should it be a cause of guilt for Israel?”(1 Chronicles 21:1‭-‬3 ESV)Again the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel, and he incited David against them, saying, “Go, number Israel and Judah.” So the king said to Joab, the commander of the army, who was with him, “Go through all the tribes of Israel, from Dan to Beersheba, and number the people, that I may know the number of the people.”(2 Samuel 24:1‭-‬2)

Episode 18: God's Will is to Heal
'And behold, a leper came to him and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” And Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I will; be clean.” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. ‘ (Matthew 8:2-3)—Jesus is perfect Theology If you have seen me you have seen the Father He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature(Hebrews 1:3)Lense of the grace verses lense of the law Greatest all prophets least in KingdomWe must remember when reading the old testament that they saw God through a veiled lens that is the law of Moses. They were crying out for Jesus whole we now have. We have to read the scriptures through the lens of Jesus otherwise we can come under  a wrong spirit just as the disciples did. Repent and turn to Jesus!—SOZOPhysical, emotional, mental and spiritual Healing are all part of the atonement just at the forgiveness of sins. God forgives all our sins and heals all of our diseases. (Psalm 103:3-5, Matthew 9:2-8)Jesus healed all that came to Him and showed us that it is always God’s will to heal. 'And behold, some people brought to him a paralytic, lying on a bed. And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Take heart, my son; your sins are forgiven.” And behold, some of the scribes said to themselves, “This man is blaspheming.” But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, “Why do you think evil in your hearts? For which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins” —he then said to the paralytic— “Rise, pick up your bed and go home.” And he rose and went home. ‘ (Matthew 9:2-7)' Bless the Lord , O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (‘Psalm 103:2-5)The bible tells us that the will of God is perfectly shown to us in Jesus Christ and that if we have seen Him, we also see the Father. Jesus is God and showed us that sickness is always God’s enemy. “Surely He has borne our illnesses And carried our disease; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:4-5) “who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness— by whose stripes YOU WERE HEALED.” (I Peter 2:24)“When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed ALL who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.”” (Matthew 8:16-17) —The devil roams around Resist the devil  2 Corinthians 11 devil comes as an angel of light deceived like Eve. They were already like God Do this or don’t do that you will be like God. —Sickness Bad, healing and health goodJesus demonstrated to us that sickness, disease and death are always evil and works of the devil. All one has to do is to simply read through the gospels and this will become evident. Jesus healed everyone who came to Him and never used sickness to teach, humble or correct anyone. He also never "allowed" for anyone to stay sick that came to Him for healing so they could learn patience or trust. Let us stop calling the evil of sickness and death, "good." The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8)how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. (Acts 10:38)-God does not test or tempt with evil JamesEvery good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. (James 1:17) —Light has no fellowship with darkness.We have the victory though our Lord Jesus Christ and must not fall for the devils lies to ever see any of these evils as a tool God uses to teach us. While God works all things together for our good, He does not cause or even allow these things into our lives. The are illegal attacks from the enemy that we overcome through the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony, that is the testimony of Jesus Christ! We must remember according to James that God does not tempt/test us with evil and that according to Jesus all sickness disease and death are very evil and works of the devil.Then a demon-oppressed man who was blind and mute was brought to him, and he healed him, so that the man spoke and saw. And all the people were amazed, and said, “Can this be the Son of David?” But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this man casts out demons.”Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand. And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?And if I cast out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges.But if it is by the Spirit of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. (Matthew 12:-22-28)Jesus made it very simple and clear for us when He said in John 10:10 “the thief comes only to kill, steal and destroy, I have come that you may have life and life abundantly.” On the cross Jesus destroyed all sickness, sin and death. We have been purchased from sin and sickness. Jesus forgave sins and healed all diseases. The gospel includes salvation from sin and sickness.—Grace is Sufficient!  Grace is sufficient, power perfected in weakness does not mean we stay in it, but that victory is won. Paul didn’t stay there but won the victory—-Curses vs. Blessings 'Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.” For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.” But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.” so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith. Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”— '(Galatians 3:10-14)Deuteronomy 28 shows us that sickness and disease is a curse. It is poorly translated to say that the lord will cause these diseases, but this is not the case. These are the curse of the law and the wages of sin. These People were looking through the lease of the law and believing that God was bringing these curses which are actually brought through sin and the curse of the law. —-Job called out for a mediator, which we now have. He cried out for Jesus! He was calling out for the healer, who is Jesus. 'For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth. ‘ (Job 19:25)—No Legal Right!Jesus made it very simple and clear for us when He said in John 10:10 “the thief comes only to kill, steal and destroy, I have come that you may have life and life abundantly.” The Court has sat in judgment. ' But the court shall sit in judgment, and his dominion shall be taken away, to be consumed and destroyed to the end. And the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High; his kingdom shall be an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.’ ‘ (Daniel 7:26-27)'And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him. ‘ (Colossians 2:13-15)According to the scriptures the devil is still active even though Jesus has already defeated HIm. He always acts illegally and never has any legal right to afflict anyone according to Colossians 2. 'For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.’ (Romans 6:23)—-No Generational CursesAny generational curses are broken through our faith in Jesus Christ when we become die with Him and are raised to new life becoming a new creation. Ezekiel even said before the cross that the sins of the Father are not visited on their offspring. 'The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. '(Ezekiel 18:20From "Healing the Sick" by T.L. Osborn "No Glory in Suffering""You no longer take your place with Job of the Old Testament, thinking you must suffer sickness because Job suffered. You have learned that you are living in the post-Calvary epoch under grace and truth which sets you free from the curse of the law (Deut. 28:58-61)A minister once told me some time ago: 'Every time I pray for the sick, either myself, my wife, or my child becomes ill.' Then He went on to tell me that he believed he must have these tests to prove his faith; that it was his duty to prove himself faithful in sickness in order for God to use him in the healing of others who were sick.I asked him if he felt that he should prove himself faithful in sin in order for God to use him in preaching salvation to sinners. Then I told him: 'The difference between your preaching and mine is that you are preaching and believing that you must suffer and be faithful before you can tell others that they can be healed. I tell people that Jesus has already suffered for them and for me- that, therefore, we can all enjoy the redemption which he has provided for us- that Jesus is the substitute-NOT ME.”'For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ. Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. '(Romans 5:17-18)—HEALED THEM ALLAnd he went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people. So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought him all the sick, those afflicted with various diseases and pains, those oppressed by demons, those having seizures, and paralytics, and he healed them. (Matthew 4:23-24)And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. (Matthew 9:35)'Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he healed them all (Matthew 12:15)By His stripes you have already been healed!

Episode 17: Jesus, Your Only Covering
FAITH WITHOUT WORKS  For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead. (James 2:26)  There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—(Ephesians 1:4)  remembering before our God and Father your WORK OF FAITH and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 1:3)  Then they said to him, “What must we do, to be doing the works of God?” Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you BELIEVE in him whom he has sent.” (John 6:28-29)  We are the ones knocking on the door and asking for bread in the passage in James…  And I tell you, ASK, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; KNOCK, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” (Luke 11:9-13) Here is a poem reiterating this truth,  https://www.wellspringsofrest.com/work-of-faith  ONE MEDIATOR  For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, (1 Timothy 2:5)  The former priests were many in number, because they were prevented by death from continuing in office, but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever. (Hebrews 7:23-24) The law was given through angels and entrusted to a mediator. A mediator, however, implies more than one; but God is one. (Galatians 3:19-20)  Hebrews 7:23-Hebrews 8  for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way? For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not being merely human? What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.  (1 Corinthians 3:3-7) I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown. (Revelation 3:7)  not exercising authority over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. (1 Peter 5:3) You were bought with a price; do not become bondservants of men.

Recorded at Resurrection Ranch Sunday December 13, 2020By His stripes you are healed this very day! Sickness and injury can have nothing to do with you in Jesus name! We have a choice what we believe. We can choose to believe the scriptures and the finished work of the cross even when the enemy is attacking our soul through our bodies or mind. “My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.” (Proverbs 4:20-23) Jesus healed all who came to Him and showed us that it is always God’s will to heal. “how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”  (Acts 10:38)The bible tells us that the will of God is perfectly shown to us in Jesus Christ and that if we have seen Him, we also see the Father. Jesus is God and showed us that sickness is always God’s enemy. On the cross Jesus destroyed all sickness, sin and death. We have been purchased from sin and sickness. Jesus forgave sins and healed all diseases. The gospel includes salvation from sin and sickness. “Surely He has borne our illnesses And carried our disease; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:4-5) “who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness— by whose stripes YOU WERE HEALED.” (I Peter 2:24)“When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed ALL who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.”” (Matthew 8:16-17) To visit Resurrection Ranch go to the link belowhttps://www.rezranch.comTo give go tohttps://www.rezranch.com/giveFacebookhttps://www.facebook.com/rezranch11

Episode 14: Equity and the Gospel
In this message, we discuss true equality found in Jesus Christ. They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long, and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces and being called rabbi by others. But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brothers. And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. Neither be called instructors, for you have one instructor, the Christ. The greatest among you shall be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. (Matthew 23:5-12)“But Jesus called them to Himself and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. “It is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave; just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:25-29)And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. (Matthew 28:18)and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. (Colossians 2:10)far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in the one to come. Ephesians 1:21You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, announcing the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all. Acts 10:36 You were bought with a price: Do not be bondservants of men. 1 Corinthians 7:23There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (Ephesians 4:4-6)“The Lord is at your right hand; he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath. He will execute judgment among the nations, filling them with corpses; He will shatter heads over the wide earth.” (Psalm 110:5-6)“Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every archy,  and every authority and power.” (1 Corinthians 15:24)“You call Me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am. If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.” (John 13:13-14)Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain. (Isaiah 40:4)Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness (leveling, equity); (Psalm 45:6)To visit Resurrection Ranch go to the link belowhttps://www.rezranch.com​​To give go tohttps://www.rezranch.com/give​​Facebookhttps://www.facebook.com/rezranch11​​

Episode 13: Faith NOT Fear
Recorded Sunday January 24, 2021F reedomA quiredI nT ruthfulH earing   NOTF alseE videnceA ppearing R ealSo faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. (Romans 10:17)You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. (John 8:32)So if the Son sets you free, you shall be free indeed. (John 8:36)but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls. (John 10:38-39)Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. (Hebrews 11:1-3)For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.” Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.” But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.” Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”— so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit  through faith. (Galatians 3:10-14)But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: (Romans 3:21-22)For Moses writes about the righteousness that is based on the law, that the person who does the commandments shall live by them. But the righteousness based on faith says, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’” (that is, to bring Christ down) “or ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); (Romans 10:5-8)to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’ (Acts 26:18)To visit Resurrection Ranch go to the link belowhttps://www.rezranch.com​To give go tohttps://www.rezranch.com/give​

Episode 12: God Has ALWAYS Loved You
The full trinity was on the cross'For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, '(Colossians 2:9 ESV)'All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. '(2 Corinthians 5:18-19)'For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. '(Romans 5:10)Note-Romans 5:9 tells us the cross saves us from wrath. Some translations add wrath of God, but this is nowhere in the original Greek. We are saved from the wrath of the law. Psalm 22 is a victorious Psalm. When the ancients quoted the first verse of a Psalm, they were also referencing the entire Psalm. Jesus was tempted in all ways just as we were. He felt abandoned at the cross, but the next few verses show us that God delivered Jesus and rose Him from the dead. God did not kill Jesus'None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. '(1 Corinthians 2:8)The Law demands blood'Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. '(Hebrews 9:22)'For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression. '(Romans 4:15)Hearts Sprinkled Free'let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. ‘ (Hebrews 10:22)We do not shrink back'But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.’ (Hebrews 10:39)God Hates Sacrifices'When he said above, “You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings” (these are offered according to the law), then he added, “Behold, I have come to do your will.” He does away with the first in order to establish the second. ‘ (Hebrews 10:8-9)Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices, and eat the flesh. For in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, I did not speak to your fathers or command them concerning burnt offerings and sacrifices. But this command I gave them: ‘Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people. And walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.’Jeremiah 7:21-23 ESVHear the word of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom! Give ear to the teaching of our God, you people of Gomorrah! “What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices? says the Lord; I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams and the fat of well-fed beasts; I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of goats. “When you come to appear before me, who has required of you this trampling of my courts? Bring no more vain offerings; incense is an abomination to me. New moon and Sabbath and the calling of convocations— I cannot endure iniquity and solemn assembly. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hates; they have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them.Isaiah 1:10-14 ESV' In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted, but you have given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering you have not required. '(Psalm 40:6)' For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. '(Psalm 51:16-17)'And Samuel said, “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord ? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams. '(1 Samuel 15:22)' To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice. ‘ (Proverbs 21:3)'For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings. '(Hosea 6:6)No fear in love'There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. '(1 John 4:18)'For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. ‘ (Romans 8:1-2)Vengeance of the Lord' to proclaim the year of the Lord ’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord , that he may be glorified.

Episode 10: Of Course Women Can Preach and Teach!

Episode 10: Of Course Women Can Preach and Teach!
Of Course, Women can teach and Preach! God is not a respecter of persons and will speak through any yielded vessel. In the Lord there is neither male nor female. This does not mean that biological sexes cease to exist in the body of christ. This means that for both men and women, we have died and Christ now lives in us. The Holy Spirit will speak truth through any yielded vessel. The culture and times that Jesus came into were very oppressive to women. He flowed upstream by first revealing himself publicly as the messiah to the woman at the well. She then went into her town and preached the gospel and told her town about Jesus. It is a good thing she was not silent among the congregation or church (eklesia) of people. When Jesus rose from the dead he first appeared to you guessed it, women. They then went and shared the good news with the men. Jesus’ ministry was also funded by women. Aquilla AND Priscilla taught Appolos. We can go on and on about the amazing women used by God as teachers, preachers and leaders in the Bible. We could go on about the amazing women throughout church history who have partnered with God to preach and teach the gospel. You see part of the curse the world came under when Adam and Eve fell is that women came under the domination of men. Jesus reversed this curse and takes us into the body of Christ. In the body of Christ, there is only one head and that is Jesus. There is one body, one lord, one Spirt, one Father and so on. The devil knows the Bible better than most of us and will twist it to oppress men and women to silence us and bring us under his domination. He has tricked many into ignoring all of the women teachers, preachers and leaders in the Bible and twisted a few verses and seduced men through their own weaknesses to oppress women in an attempt to silence half of the body of Christ. You cannot throw out the whole of scripture and Jesus' relationship with women to validate the misinterpretations and mistranslations of only a few verses and create a new law to bring believers under when Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death. It is the devil who would want to silence the gospel yet many fall into his snare and are used by him when telling women to be silent.Can the eye say to the hand, “we don’t need you?” This is what many including big name preachers have done in the body of Christ by telling women to be silent, and by telling them they cannot lead and teach. They don’t know that they are speaking by the sprit of slavery and domination that tries to keep others in bondage. I pray that those under this doctrine of demons would have a revelation of the truth. I pray for any women watching or listening to this video to have boldness to preach and teach when led by the Holy Spirit! No doctrine, denomination, pastor, priest, self-proclaimed apostle or prophet can stop you from preaching and teaching about your beloved Jesus Christ!I break the glass ceiling that has been put over you in Jesus name and today the restraints that have been holding you back from preaching the gospel are destroyed! Run the race with boldness. Blessings!

Episode 8: Are You My Mother Part 2
Jacob Dunbar continues this series by diving deeper into the mystery of the Trinity. God is most definitely three, but God is also one. This is a mystery we will enjoy unpacking for all of eternity. In this message we dive deeper into this mystery. It is important to note that we are made in God’s image, not the other way around. Every tribe and every culture in some way reflects the image of God. Men and women are both made in the image of God. God is described as the Father, the Son, but also the Spirit.The bible is very clear in describing the Holy Spirit as the Mother of the Household of God. The trinity is described as the household or family of God that believers are brought into when we become born again, or born of the Spirt. Family’s consists of fathers, mothers and children. The Spirit is described as giving us new birth, and as nursing her children. Mothers give birth and nurse, not Fathers. It is revealed to us in Genesis one that men and women both are made in the image of God,  So God created man (mankind) in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27)It is important to note that the word used for man often should be all of humanity in both the Greek and the Hebrew. God is one person, but not like a human. God knows every thought going on right now. God knows every hair on every head of every person that has ever walked the face of the earth. God holds the universe in the palm of His /Her hand.We can see that the family is under attack in the world. We believe that this starts with the body of Christ as we have made the Trinity into our image, the image of a man. We have pushed a theology that would have either a Father nursing and giving birth or having three men in the trinity with one of them nursing and giving birth. We have created a homo-sex God. We have made God in the image of a mortal man and thus mankind has fallen into gender confusion and homosexuality. This is evident when reading Romans 1… Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. (Romans 1:22-25)We have made God in our image, the image of a man. We largely miss what is in the scriptures and what God has spoken because our traditions make the word of God of no effect. We have many denominations and many church doctrines built on man’s intellect. Why is this so important?God has given us all free-will to choose what we believe. We decide what we let into our heart, which is the seat of our beliefs. The bible says that we have no need that any man should teach us, but the anointing teaches us all things. The Holy Spirit leads us into all truth. So search this out for your self. “They will all be taught by God.” We are now in the household of God. God is a perfect beautiful family of which we are now a part. In the body of Christ, the Father is preached, worshipped and honored as well He should be for He is like no Father the world could ever see or imagine. Likewise, the Son is honored worshipped and admired as well He should be for He is love and truth and everything beautiful! But where is the Mother in this family? Is the household of God a single parent household without a mother. The scriptures and many throughout history would say OF COURSE NOT! So who do they describe as being our mother? Here are just a few quotes from Count Zinzendorf who was instrumental in the Moravian Revival a catalyst for the first great awakening: "a family must be complete. We must have a Father, Mother, & Husband.""I could not speak about it [the Holy Spirit], since I did not know how I should define it. I simply believed that she is the third person of the Godhead, but I could not say how this was properly so. Instead I thought of her abstractly. ... The Holy Spirit had known me well, but I did not know her before the year 1738. That is why I carefully avoided entering in the matter until the Mother Office of the Holy Spirit had been so clearly opened up for me.”"God [Christ] is even our dear husband, his Father is our dear Father, & the Holy Spirit is our dear Mother, with that we are finished, with that the family-idea, the oldest, the simplest, the most respectable, the most endearing idea among all human ideas, the true biblical idea, is established with us in the application of the holy Trinity, for no one is nearer to one than Father, Mother, & Husband.Paul in Galatians 4 gives us an allegory to help understand the old and new covenant. Paul telIs us that the Jerusalem above is free and she is our mother; he then goes on to tell us that those born according to the flesh still persecute those born according to the Spirit, and that we are now children of the free woman, that being the Holy Spirit.But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother. For it is written,“Rejoice, O barren one who does not bear; break forth and cry aloud, you who are not in labor! For the children of the desolate one will be more than those of the one who has a husband.” (Galatians 4:26-27)“But just as at that time he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, so also it is now…So, brothers, we are not children of the slave but of the free woman.” (Galatians 4:29, 31)Many other places in the scriptures including Romans 8 and 2 Corinthians 3 juxtapose walking in and being led by the Spirit as opposed to being led by the law or the flesh. So why does Galatians 4 call the Spirit the barren woman. Jesus told his disciples that no one had known the Spirit until He came and revealed her. He is described as being the firstborn of many brothers and the firstborn of the dead. Jesus is the Firstborn of the Dead, it is the Spirit who raised Him from the dead.  Please read this blog for more on being born again and raised to new lifehttps://www.wellspringsofrest.com/post/firstborn-of-the-dead-firstborn-of-the-new-creationMany other places in scripture describe the Holy Spirt as She. Proverbs 1-Wisdom is described as She. Early church Fathers taught that Wisdom is the Holy Spirit. Throughout the Proverbs the Seven Spirits of God are revealed. The Seven Spirits of God are 7 ways in which the Holy Spirit manifests Herself. Wisdom cries aloud in the street,in the markets she raises her voice;at the head of the noisy streets she cries out;at the entrance of the city gates she speaks:“How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple?How long will scoffers delight in their scoffingand fools hate knowledge?If you turn at my reproofbehold, I will pour out my spirit on you;I will make my words known to you.  (Proverbs 1:20-23)Count Zinzendorf linked Isaiah 66 to the comforter in John 14, "When the dear Savior at the end of his life wanted to comfort his disciples (at that time the language was not as rich as ours is); by that time the Savior, who was a very great bible student, had doubtlessly read the verse in the Bible "I will comfort you as a mother comforts one." Then the dear Savior thought, "If I should say to my disciples that I am going away, then I must give them some comfort. I must say to them that they will receive someone who will comfort them over my departure. It will not be strange to them, for they have already read it in the Bible. ...There it reads, they shall have a Mother: "I will leave you my Spirit.”As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. (Isaiah 66:13)The following is a hymn from the Moravian revival, The Church's Prayer to the Holy Spirit (1759)    1. Thou, who from the Father hast    ‘Fore all Time proceeded,    Spirit, by whom the Virgin Blest    The Son here conceived!    2. Since the Lamb of God, so red,    Is his People’s Brother,    And Christ’s God their Father’s made,    Thou’rt the Church’s Mother.    3. Of thy Name, O God, & Breath    Grant us still the Nearness!    That the Word of Jesu’s    Shine to Souls with Clearness.    4. Whom from Death-Sleep of the Fall    Our dear Lord doth quicken,    Fetch into thy Church-Ark all;    Help their Abba speaking.    5. As in greatest Things thy Will    Meets with Execution:    So in small shall it fulfil    His Church-Constitution.    6. Of the Righteousness of God    Thro’ the Blood-Effusion,    Of that daily Bread & Food    Thou mak’st Distribution.    7. MOTHER! all the Church’s Life    Is the Father’s Kindness,    Our Lord’s Patience with his Wife,    And thy rich Forgiveness.    8. We would fain not tempted be,    With none thus distressed;    Yet if one’s chastis’d by Thee,    It to him be blessed.    9. And till once the wicked Fiend    Is at God’s Feet lying, (Ps. cx.1. Heb. ii.8.)    Sleeps within thy Cradle screen’d    The Church from his Trying.    10. Amen, Ruach Elohim!    Come in th’ Name of Jesus,    Thy Children’s whole SanhedrimGod from the beginning explained that his image is reflected as both male and female. Clearly, the Father is an archetypal male, as is the Son, so who is the female? Unquestionably, the Holy Spirit is the proverbial mother who births us into new life. To believe otherwise is to embrace a theology with a homo-sex God or a transgender God rather than the beautiful image of a FAMILY.To visit Resurrection Ranch go to the link belowhttps://www.rezranch.com​​​To give go tohttps://www.rezranch.com/give​​​Facebookhttps://www.facebook.com/rezranch11​​​
