RHEMA 12/05/11 TRUE FELLOWSHIP
HEARD: Fellowship. People can have fellowship
only to the degree they know Me. It's true sweetheart.
It's paramount that you understand this. Coming out of
fellowship into the real world. It is exactly the
opposite. Coming out of the world for real fellowship.
COMMENT: This counteracts the view of being so
heavenly minded one is no earthly good. Ministering and
fellowshipping are 2 different concepts. If you are
trying to have fellowship with someone you are
ministering to, you are looking in the wrong place if
they are living in the world, filled with unbelief
and/or think you are too spiritual.
1 Cor 1:9 NKJV
God is faithful, by whom you were called into the
fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
koinonia (koy-nohn-ee'-ah); from NT:2844; partnership,
i.e. (literally) participation, or (social) intercourse,
or (pecuniary) benefaction:
KJV - (to) communicate (-ation), communion, (contri-)
2 Cor 6:14-18 NKJV
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.
For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness?
And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what
accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a
believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has
the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of
the living God. As God has said: "I will dwell in them
And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall
be My people." 17 Therefore "Come out from among them
And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is
unclean, And I will receive you." 18 'I will be a
Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty."
metoche (met-okh-ay'); from NT:3348; participation, i.e.
KJV - fellowship.
metecho (met-ekh'-o); from NT:3326 and NT:2192; to share
or participate; by implication belong to, eat (or
KJV - be partaker, pertain, take part, use.
WORDS OF WISDOM: Jesus did no mighty miracles in
places because of their unbelief and Jesus put aside the
ridiculing crowd to raise the girl from the dead. They
were not allowed to partake of the fellowship
(communications, participation) of the inner workings of
the miracles taking place.
There are certain people that are toxic to one's faith
and the ability to climb higher in God. It is coming
through soul ties with loved ones who are entrenched in
the world. The Lord said that His friends and family
were only those who did His Father's will. When we view
our relationships through that lens, we need to learn
who our friends really are and how to guard our heart
from the unbelief and rebellions of others that we
love. We need to back off to the degree that we can
guard our hearts from the toxicity of others' negativity
and unbelief and yet still love them as God enables us
Matt 9:23-26 NKJV
When Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the
flute players and the noisy crowd wailing, 24 He said to
them, "Make room, for the girl is not dead, but
sleeping." And they ridiculed Him. 25 But when the crowd
was put outside, He went in and took her by the hand,
and the girl arose. 26 And the report of this went out
into all that land.
John 15:14-15 NKJV
You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.
Mark 3:33-35 NKJV
But He answered them, saying, "Who is My mother, or
My brothers?" 34 And He looked around in a circle at
those who sat about Him, and said, "Here are My mother
and My brothers! 35 For whoever does the will of God is
My brother and My sister and mother."
