whosoever


Who is whosoever?

The dictionary defines whosoever as whoever. Used as a pronoun in a sentence we usually get something like  "Whosoever wants a soda needs to pay at the counter," which means that anyone (whoever) who wants a soda has to pay at the counter.

The answer is very simple. It is anyone.

So, who is this in Bible terms?

Wherever - because you are anointed

When is the right place and right time to preach the Gospel, and to whom?

And what is this Gospel we are supposed to bring?

When the Gospel is to be ministered there are always a number of questions that people come up with to substantiate their unwillingness or indifference.

Typically these include where, who and what?

In this blog post I will be dealing with the where-part.



But before we get to the where-part, I should deal with the what-part.

The what-part


What is the Gospel?

The Gospel is the Good News. The Gospel is the better-than-the-best-news-you-can-ever-hope-for, the news of Jesus Christ as your Saviour.

It is the Good News that says:

You are completely forgiven. (Col 3:13)

You are completely set free. (Rm 6:22)

You have been redeemed from the curse of the law. (Gal 3:13)

You have been sanctified. (Heb 10:10)

You have been made whole, healed and justified. (Rom 5:1)

You have been made Holy. 
(Heb 10:10)

Is there any bad news in the Good News?


It is the Good News wherein there is NO bad news.

If it contains any bad news, then it is not the news of our Saviour. If it motivates by fear and punishment it is not God's message. The one who motivates by fear is the devil.

If it is bad news, it is the devil's news!

That is why preaching hell-fire and condemnation is not of God. Jesus never did this. Our focus should always be on His Goodness. He is the Good News. Remember our post on being simple concerning evil?

And the application of the Gospel?

Look at this. Whenever Jesus sends His apostles, He sends them (us) with the Good News to start of with.


In each instance when Jesus commissions His disciples He says to begin with the Gospel ... and only thereafter to heal the sick, set the captives free, etc. You can check it out, for real.

In His great commission, just before His ascension, Jesus sends us out in the same fashion, saying Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature ... (Mark 16:15)

The Gospel is the power of God onto Salvation! (Rom 1:16).

How do we get people saved or healed or set free or provided for ...

We give them the Gospel!

Let's dive down to the origin


In Greek the Gospel is euaggelion, which means to bring good news, to announce glad tidings.

It is a compound word from the word eu, meaning to be well off, fare well, prosper and the word aggelos, meaning messenger, envoy, one who is sent, an angel, a messenger/message from God.

Now that we know what exactly the Gospel is, let's turn to the where-part ... within context, that is ...

Jesus made a profound statement about the Gospel and the anointing ...

Wherever

She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.

Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world,

this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them.
Mar 14:8-10

What did she do?


Jesus says wheresoever the Gospel of His Salvation is preached, the anointing of the woman will be conveyed.

It is a faithful, prophetic action when this woman applied the embalming medicines to (anointed) Jesus. She treated his body with the anointing ointments, acknowledging His death on the cross. But not just His death ... also His resurrection and what His death accomplished.

How is this possible?

It is possible because it is prophetic. And it conveys the whole of the Gospel.

There are three main purposes for embalming - (1) disinfection, (2) preservation and (3) restoration.

Disinfection is prophetic towards what Jesus did. He took away all sins and made us whole.

Preservation is prophetic towards what Jesus did. He preserved life for all Mankind.

Restoration is prophetic towards what Jesus did. He resorted mankind to it's original purpose to have relationship with Him and to have dominion and rule in the kingdom of God.


It is the anointing

Anointing in the Greek is murizō - to anoint the body to apply (perfumed) unguent Probably of foreign origin to treat with myrrh,  ointment.


The anointment lives right inside of you. Remember when Jesus was handed the book of Isaiah in the synagogue in Nazareth, He read from Isaiah 61:

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he hath anointed me
to preach the gospel to the poor;
he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted,
to preach deliverance to the captives,
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty them that are bruised, 
To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 

And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 

And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. (Luk 4:18-21)

Well, the Anointed One lives right inside of you!

Where?

In the church-building?

Whenever we feel anointed?

No!

Wherever!

... Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world ... (Mark 14:9)

Wherever in Greek is hopou, meaning what (-ever) wherever, at whichever spot, in whichever place, where you find yourself.


The Anointed One, God Himself, Who lives inside of you is always ready to bring the better-than-the-best-news-you-can-ever-hope-for to anyone!

You are well-enabled and well-equip to bring this message wherever you go.

No wonder God called for this ministry to be named whereverwhosoever.blogspot.com



Please join me in my next post when I will be dealing with the whosoever-part.

Against the odds in Malta

Sometimes when someone is on his or her last leg, so to speak, they give up.

What if they were on their last leg ...

and a prisoner ...

and  stranded amongst pagan heathens ...

and bitten by a snake ...

and being thought of as being a criminal that was pursued by their pagan gods ...

and ... no family, no transport, no daily amenities ....

Well, that's how it turned out for Paul in Malta.

The way of a fool!

Recently a grace teacher of note wrote in his newly released book that it is quite possible to hear the words of Jesus and not hear what the Holy Spirit is saying ...

Gulp ...

What?

Well, it is true because so did Judas and the Pharisees and a host of many others.

How do we hear then?

Righteousness revealed - get your ID

The problem with the modern-day Christian is that we do not know our identity.

We do not know who we are in Christ.

We therefore do not know that we are given the authority to reign ... we are therefore defeated Christians during our tenure here on earth.

It's an identity-crisis!

So, as a Christian, how is your righteousness revealed?

Jesus did not pay for your sins

Someone recently posted Adam sold us out. Jesus bought us back! #PaidInFull.

... and I thought about what the Spirit of Truth once taught me ...

To this post I had to ask the question Sold out to who ... and paid who?

Sold out!

Yes, Adam did more than selling human kind out. He relinquished his rights and power and authority and gave away his precious position in God.

But Jesus didn't negotiate or pay a price to the thief in order to gain our freedom. Never!

Look and be saved

Sometimes it's just better to sit and enjoy ...

... especially when something is already done!

Stand back, behold ... take it in and receive what is accomplished.

Why do we find it so hard?

Beyond and above - ask

In my last post I dealt with some New Testament prayer ... a better way to pray in comparison to the old covenant prayers we pray as brain-washed Christians.

Don't blame me!

Blame Paul!

There is a difference between the New Testament and the old covenant (which you were never part of, unless you were an Israelite) and there is a different way to pray.

You are an heir in the kingdom of God. Now pray like you are!

Is prayer really prayer?

Ephesians 1 prayer

The New Testament brings a new way to pray...

Paul shows us how in Ephesians 1:17-23 (I have personalized it from the KJV).

Now go on ... pray it over yourself!

HalleluYAH, the picture ...


If ever there was one Hebrew word that we all use all over the world all of the time, it is the word Hallelujah ... or, as I like use it - HalleluYAH!

We use it all the time. 

Even non-Christians and people in all kinds of religions use it.

And we don't find the time to stop and see what it is that we are saying ...

So, let's do!

Resurrection in Message language

Have you heard Paul speaking in Message language?

Yes, he does sound a little different ... but he is even more understandable. 

So I took the liberty to post what Paul says about the subject of "resurrection", ... but from the Massage (from the MSG translation).

It's awesome!

The crowns of Yahshua

The Word explains the Word.

... to the extent that you will stand perplexed ...

... and be utterly astonished of how that even the word-pictures testify and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Out of the miry clay

The prophet Zechariah (remembered by Yahveh) speaks so beautifully and eloquently about the Grace of God - Jesus. 

Zechariah also prophesied about God's elect (us), who was freed from Babylon (confusion-by-mixture, the miry clay), describing an amazing picture of a crown (ăṭârâh or עטרה - encircled or crowned with the pictograph: revelation surrounded by the Highest in Grace) for the head of Yah'shua (Jesus).

Join me as I share my own astonishment

Cast out the bondwoman

We talked about Perfect Liberty, the PLL (Perfect Law of Liberty) in a previous post.

The straight opposite is to be in bondage.

Both are available, yet mutually exclusive.

You can not be totally free when you are in bondage. And you cannot be in bondage when you are totally free ...

Think about it for a moment ...

Who overcomes?

Did you know that the word defeat does not occur anywhere in the KJV translation New Testament?

The word overcome does.

Maybe it is so because those of us who see ourselves as heirs and beneficiaries of the New Testament are not meant to be defeated, but rather we are meant  to be the ones who overcome.

It is a shift of power and authority story

The Word is Life, Medicine unto all flesh

What is life?

Is this a philosophical question?

Actually, it is very simple, straight-forward question with a very simple straight-forward Answer. And we find it (...Him) spread out through all scripture.

Turning to Solomon for some perspective
