Doing The Math
This is the section on the main page that introduces my saying "do the math".

This section explains God's math in much more detail. It also attempts to teach how to see the math in our testimony as well as the reason for it all.

  About Mike From Church - We Can All Know HIM

We Can All Know God

I have many favorite Bible: books; epistles (letters that were written to first century churches); psalms; proverbs and scripture verses in the Bible, but I must admit that my favorite writings are always centered around revelation knowledge that leads to the doctrine and full understanding of knowing God. My God is not a respector of persons. My God is not far away. My God will not withhold any good thing from ANYONE that seeks him with an honest heart!

By "any good thing" of course I am firstly speaking of spiritual gifts and wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him. Each one of us has the ability to display our love to him, as well as come before him in any measure that our heart truly desires. I am far from wanting to be anything great in this life or in the resurrection. However: when it comes to wanting to be right; just; or real, I will be the first in line.

When it comes to standing up for what it right: Here am I.

Do you have a desire to know God?

If you already know God, do you have a desire to draw closer to him?

Even though God had made himself real to me (in that one day that I miraculously started believing in him), I still later came to a point in my life where I saw that I was "ignorantly" worshiping him (Acts 17:23). Don't be deceived: As far as I can see so far (show me if I am wrong), none of us have it "all together". As I look back into history, I see the same today which is consolation to me (as far as my vision of perfection). We are all growing and learning more and more about our spiritual gifts. Right now we understand in part and prophesy in part, but when the Lord returns we "become like him" (1 John 3:2). It is at this time that we will "know as also we are known" (1 Cor.13:12); speak in all languages (including heavenly) (1 Cor.13:1) and "understand all mysteries and all knowledge" (1 Cor.13:2). While this perfection will require waiting on the Lord, there is a lifetime of experiences you do not want to miss out on.

Everything will fall into place like a puzzle when you watch for God and continue to take steps towards him. At the start we are in darkness, or like a blind person as we "feel after him" (Acts 17:27). First we need to see that this "feeling after him" is a "prescription" from God, written in his word. God wants you to find him! He would not dangle a carrot in front of your nose like some man would, God wants you to attain and obtain: "That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us" (Acts 17:27). In fact even when it comes to God's wisdom and gifts, it is for any time throughout history (in season and out of season). When it comes to an honest and true heart, God does not hold back any good thing!

If you do not know God right now (or want a more lively walk), you can!

When I say that you can, I mean you REALLY can: Not in some religious way through some "maybe" or "possible" ray of hope on a stick (never attained), but in a way that God actually talks to you and is part of your life.

I am speaking of "faith" that actually becomes a real "substance" to you as you partake with God in his spirit. (Hebrews 11:1).

I am not talking about dead faith, but a real living faith that produces the "works" and "signs following" in your life. I am not talking about "signs following" in the way that preachers outwardly magnify certain signs, but simple living works that follow because of a real relationship with a living God. You will manifest spiritual gifts of all kinds and seek to new levels! However, this regular automatic manifestation (at least in my life) is something that happens as God directs, which then also becomes part of a testimony or seal in your life that God is true (John 3:33) and part of it as "all in all". Like when Paul was speaking of the body of Christ: "Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all" (Ephesians 1:23) And again in another place: "Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all" (I Corinthians 12:4-6). This is something for us all to experience. When speaking of the nine gifts mentioned, Paul does not say that the gifts are for "some" or a selected "few": "But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal" in I Corinthians 12:7, and then goes on to name the nine different manifestations of the spirit that has been given to "every" man in the body of Christ in verses:8-10. Then after naming all of the gifts Paul again says these gifts are for EVERYONE in verse 11 "But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will" (I Corinthians 12:11). This "testimony" that we all have and share is a supernatural manifestation produced by Gods Spirit. We see God move before us in our life as we have no other choice but to see and speak of his glory. We all bear record to the most simple of experiences that the world must dismiss in unbelief, as those that know God have no choice but to see and compute the most impossible math.

The first thing that God wants you to "know" is that he knows exactly where you are right now. He knows your every thought and most times when you think that you are talking to yourself, you are really talking to him anyway. So, simply open up to him and admit your weaknesses and frailties so that he can rest his grace on you!

There is a purpose to your existence!

You are no accident!

Nothing that happens in your life is by accident!

Most important - There is no such thing as coincidence!

You are not in this day and time by mistake, you are exactly where you need to be.

Hypothesizing: Even if you were born hundreds or even thousands of years ago (where God was not yet preached), God is not unjust in that he has not taken this into account. God sees the "bonds of your habitation" and all of the limits that have been placed on each of us. He has already determined the times throughout all of the ages (that have been) and the ones to come. During any time through history God has not been "far" from anyone! AND he is not far from you right now as you read this and it bears witness to your spirit.

All "ANYONE" ever needs (or needed) to do is open their heart and "feel after him" to "find him"

"Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead" (Acts 17:22-31)

Hypothesizing again and revisiting the thought of a "prescription" from God, we see Joel who spoke of a time that we would all prophesy and come into a day and age of dreams and visions. Though this prophecy can be "rightly divided" into seasons of "Palestinian" rain, we all need to be aware that God is not far from any one of us. Even though we may be at the end of the winter part of Joel's rain, those that see God's promises as a prescription, will still do "exploits": "but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits" (Daniel 11:32). In Joel the prescription was: "Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God? (Joel 2:12-14)

As God reveals his secrets (Psalm 25:14; Isaiah 42:9), sometimes it can be hard for someone with vision to find clarity and click into place: Which word or understanding is for the future?; Which are actual words that you will be a direct partaker of?; And which are words that you must partake of in order to feed others? (2 Tim.2:6); And then finally "Lord what is your will in my life TODAY"?. However, without coming to a full realization or revelation that you are not in this day and time by mistake and that God has you exactly where he needs you to be, you will not likely move forward in your walk with him. So, let us first bear witness together and shed off any and all past lies from the enemy. You are not reading this page by mistake, there is no coincidence here: YOU are EXACTLY where God wants you right now. You are reading EXACTLY what God wants you to be reading right now

Now that we know that you are EXACTLY where he wants you, it is time to start walking:

God wants you to "realize" (and start to revelate on) our written examples throughout history, only brought into our own day and time.

Let me explain:

We have examples to live by: At times you can be Enoch; Noah; Job; Abraham; Jacob; Moses; Joshua; Samuel; David; Solomon; Elijah; Elisha; Daniel; Peter; James; John; Paul; etc..

What I mean by "you can be" of course only means that you can achieve to certain levels or identify with. In my case I am "Mike From Church" with all kinds of testimony, but you will not read about me in the Bible because it contains testimonies from long ago and before my time. The examples that we read in the Bible are real testimonies that really happened. One of the reasons that the Bible was recorded, was so that we would have land marks of truth and be able to see how God makes himself known and interacts with human kind.

I want you to know something that God has shown me and has made so real to me in my life. When most people read Bible stories and see how God interacted with people of old, they tend to stand back in AWE instead of seeking after or drawing closer to a living God that can (and desires) to be found. God remains just and fair, he does not change and his ways do not change as he brings everything into complete fulfillment. I want you to know that this fulfillment is not a DECREASE in relationship, but an INCREASE!

In John chapter 14 in the context of Jesus going away so that he can send the Holy Spirit (ascending on high and giving gifts to men (Psalms 68:18 & Eph.4:8), Jesus "truly" said: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. (John 14:12)

"Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever" (Hebrews 13:8)
"Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines" (Hebrews 13:9)


The works and relationship with our God does not DECREASE with time, it gets GREATER!

Do you know that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence?

Have you ever thought about Moses and those that crossed the red sea? Can you imagine yourself standing there in the AWE and Divine Magistery as God made the waters to part and then later cover their enemies in such power?

Do you know that most all of those that walked on that dry solid ground that God made, did not appreciate it in their day? These had a heart of stone and they all within a short time and a few revelations desired to be in your shoes: While you stand here today and say "if I could only had been there in those days" I could (or would) believe more or better. If I could only had been there for those GREAT MIRACLES!

Pay attention now: This might just increase your faith!

While you look to those great days of outward "manifestation", they were looking forward to our days and times!

While you claim that you could have more faith if you could have been way back in their time, they were looking forward saying if I only lived in the days that God would put his spirit inside of us and would give us a heart of flesh. If I could only live in that day that God writes his laws on our hearts, then I would believe! OH, if I could only live in that day! The day that "they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them". If I could only live in the day prophesied that your sons and daughters would be prophets! Even Moses looked forward to this day when rebuking Joshua saying: "Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the LORD'S people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!" (Numbers 11:29).

Joel prophesied our day was for EVERYONE when he spoke of things that only God's prophets in the day could experience (prophecy, dreams, visions) seen in: "If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream." (Numbers 12:6).

The thought or concept in those days of ones own children prophesying was so far fetched that it seemed impossible, but it gave hope to them and a dream that some day could come true. However, Joel even took it to the next level and more of an extreme when he added the concept that this was not only for their sons and daughters, but also for your slaves/servants. In their mind at the time, this only witnessed to some future occurrence that seemed even much more impossible for their mind to conceive.

Today we live in this day and do not even truly realize it! In most churches it is all a one man show! He knows God and if you obey all of the rules he just might allow you the same privilege. The fact is missed and seems to go over everyone's head that Jesus said while giving the great commission: "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15) Then he said in vs.17 "And these signs shall follow them that believe". Today people spurt out when speaking of a minister: that "signs follow" his ministry, but that is not what the Lord meant. He said in Matthew: "Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:20). He was saying to teach "all things that I have shown you" and then those that believe will have signs following. The signs are not meant to follow the preacher, they are meant to follow those that believe his preaching. Again in Mark "PREACH THE GOSPEL - Now, if you preached it right, these signs will follow them that believe. If signs are not following the congregation, then something is wrong! "Deadly" wrong. Instead of putting on a one man show, he should be teaching them and leading them into a real Spirit filled walk with Jesus. Those sitting in church are the ones that need to be shown their gifts and taught how to manifest and use them.

Paul constantly points out the fact that God simply does not move through one person or individual alone. This is seen so clearly throughout the entire chapter of I Corinthians 12. Jesus clearly taught this from different parables and sayings as well. One example that I already pointed out at the start of my web site was in Matthew chapter 24 the faithful and wise steward. In another of the synonymous gospels we also read in Luke 12:42-49 where Jesus was talking about servants that would be giving out meat in due season. In the final verse (49) Jesus teaches from the scriptures how this all comes about and how he is the fulfillment to Gods promises: "I am come to send fire on the earth" as he continues explaining in vs. 50 "But I have a baptism to be baptized with". This is what John the Baptist taught "he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire" (Matthew 3:11 & Luke 3:16). The important part of all of this is that it is for EVERYONE. Isaiah prophesied the indwelling of the Spirit when he said "by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning" in Isaiah 4:4. This is all talked about in Joel 2 starting in vs. 28 and where it was quoted by Peter in Acts 2:17. This is all tied together with Moses, Isaiah and the words and coming of the Messiah and the Holy Spirit when Joel says "blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke". He taught that this was for each one of us when speaking of our day in vs.5: "And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night". Moses who experienced this first hand and who God spoke to "face to face", prophesied it would be for everyone in our day. David saw this when he prophesied "even for the rebellious" in Psalms 68:18. This was also pictured and foreshadowed in Moses by the rebellious that walked through the desert with him who experienced this "cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night". Also again Moses prophesied that it was for EVERYONE in our day when he rebuked Joshua (Numbers 11:29).

This salvation; the mystery of the Gentiles; God's gifts; His voice; His grace; all of these things were seen and looked into long ago as the prophets of old were shown these things. However, even as in those days, it is us today that these words are coming to life. It is our time and as the scripture even says that these are "things the angels desire to look into": How much us that are living it?

"Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into" (I Peter 1:10-12).

The great falling away (2 Thes.2:3) is also seen under this later day prophecy of "Prophets" being ashamed (claiming to be just simple pastors, deacons, etc.), all through Zechariah chapter 13: Read in vs.4 "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied" and vs.5 "But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth." (See Ezekiel 34:16-20 to see that the cattle are the flock of God) Also: "I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away" and in Zechariah: "smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones" (Zechariah 13:7)

You know this is all before Jesus came and died and then we read in vs.6: "And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends". You should notice that this is all in the context of our days and the days that all of the prophets spoke of when seeing vs.9: "And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God" (Zechariah 13:9)

This also ties into prophecy fulfilled when spoken to Timothy: "Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord" (II Timothy 1:8). It is not hard to see that Paul was aware of Zechariah 13 when we see that this "testimony" of our Lord is prophecy: "I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy" (Revelation 19:10).

This is the day and age of unbelief that we are rising from (or beginning to awaken from Matt.25:1) today.

God is alive, he wants to be part of your minute to minute life. He wants to be in all of your thoughts and walk with you. He wants you to see him in the things that he does for you in your life. While you can not see him with your natural eyes, he wants you to see him in the things that he does.

We all need to see him in our life and he can come into it any time or place that you invite him into it.

I do not care who you are or what you have done: Right now he is ready for you to believe and allow him into your life.

One simple prayer - We all need to start somewhere!

What do you need?

Do you need to believe in him?

You do not need to be fancy here with a special worded prayer.
Say what is on your heart to him. If all you have is "please heal me God" OR "Please make yourself real to me", this is all that you need. He already knows, he just wants you to open your mouth and ask him with a real sincere heart.

Ask him right now to reveal himself to you and then watch over a short space of time how he does it for you.
He will prove himself if that is what you need - Talk to him!

Do you need a closer walk? More faith? More power?
What is it that will cause YOU to take the next step in your life?

In my life it is all about the most impossible math that he keeps doing over and over again!

This is the next section of my web site that I am working on now: I hope to include a good explanation of MY "God" experience and real life testimony which will reveal how I see him and hear him so clearly. As I write this next page, my prayer is that it witnesses to your life and experience and bring you increase.

I got started on this!
I am not to sure how long this will take to get done, but here is what I got done up to date
