" I long to know Christ and the power which is in His resurrection, and to share in His sufferings and die even as He died" Php 3:10
To know Jesus according to Paul the Apostle, is to become a partaker of his death and ressurection or to know the power set at work through his death and ressurection. In our language, it is to say, that whoever does not taste of his suffering, will never taste of the victories of his ressurection or the benefits of his ressurection. But did not Christ himself say this, that a servant is not above his master and as they have done to him, they shall do to us?
Php 3:10 That I may know him, (2) and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
Knowing him
I would first of all like us to see what that word "know" means, this will help us understand what Paul meant, though he already explained in his elaboration.

1Co 6:17 However, the person who unites himself with the Lord becomes one spirit with him. GW
1Co 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. av
1Co 6:17 But he who is in union with the Master is one with Him in spirit.
This is what cried out for!!!! Paul did not physically see the works of Christ. He did not see those big drops of blood falling of a human's face as he prayed for "this cup" to pass him by. . Paul was not there when they dragged, mocked, spat upon, abused, made naked, scorged. Paul was not there when they crucified the Lord. And just like you and I, he was not there, when our Lord groaned from the pains of the nails that glued him to the cross. He did not hear Christ scream Eli, Eli, Eli, why have you forsaken me. Paul received the mystery of the gospel through revelation and not by the mouth of any human. It was this desire that drove him to know more of Christ that what could be recounted by the disciples. He  longed to see the power that was working behind his passion and the power that was at works behind his ressurection. He did not drink the cup together with the disciples but he drank it with Christ through the gift of revelation and he cried out, "I WANT TO KNOW HIM MORE! or if there is one thing that will make me one with Christ, I WANT ALL!!! I am now enjoying the benefit of the cross but I want to also let other enjoy that benefit through the power of Christ in me!! I want that power of death, sin, the grave and over satan!!! this is what I want.
"But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy."16
28  Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee. 29  And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s, 30  But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life. 31  But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.

In Matthew, the rules of discipleship or partnership are clearly set out
¶  Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
17  But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
18  And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
19  But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20  For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
21  And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
22  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
23  But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
24  The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
25  It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?
26  Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
27  What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
28  And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
29  Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
30  But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31  Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
32  Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
33  But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
34  Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35  For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36  And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
37  He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
39  He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
40  He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
41  He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.
42  And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
Christian persecution is not auto destruction.
See what Paul was aksing for had been abused. What he was seeking to be one with the Lord, satan polluted this holy craving into "volontury matrysm" where during the early ages, people desired to be killed, matryed for the gospel so they could be partakers of his glory in the coming age. 
In first Peter chapter 2 verse 1, Peter says "I who am myself one of the rulers of the church, and a witness of the death of Christ, having my part in the coming glory, send this serious request to the chief men among you".... Peter became a partaker of Christ suffering and sovereignty through his witnessing of what our Lord went through. So he writes clearly in Chapter 1 verses 13 through what he means by suffering for Christ or becoming a partaker of his suffering saying, 1Pe 4:12 ¶ Dear brothers, do not be surprised, as if it was something strange, if your faith is tested as by fire: 13 "But be glad that you are given a part in the pains of Christ; so that (you will be given a part in the glories of Christ) at the revelation of his glory you may have great joy.
14  If men say evil things of you because of the name of Christ, happy are you; for the Spirit of glory and of God is resting on you.
15  Let no one among you undergo punishment as a taker of life, or as a thief, or as an evil-doer, or as one who is over-interested in other men’s business;
16  But if he undergoes punishment as a Christian, that is no shame to him; let him give glory to God in this name.
17  For the time has come for the judging, starting with the church of God; but if it makes a start with us, what will be the end of those who are not under the rule of God?
18  And if it is hard for even the good man to get salvation, what chance has the man without religion or the sinner?
19  For this reason let those who by the purpose of God undergo punishment, keep on in well-doing and put their souls into the safe hands of their Maker.
Suffering for Christ is not when you intentionally die to proof you worth to the Lord! It is he who makes us PARTAKERS of his suffering and of his glory. What we will do is to know how he chooses to make us partakers of his suffering and of his glory.

Made Partakers of Christ
It is quite interesting to compare Hebrews 2:14 with Hebrews 3:14, and to note why Christ was made partaker of flesh and blood. It required Christ’s death and resurrection to destroy Satan’s “death” power. In the next chapter we learn that believing sinners delivered by Christ are partakers of Christ.
“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the Devil.” Hebrews 2:14.
“For we are made partakers of Christ (beneficiaries of his blessing), if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end.” Heb. 3:14.
The spiritual benefits that have come to believers have come because of the death and resurrection of the eternal, omnipotent and sinless Christ. It was on the cross of Calvary that Christ was made sin, and we, thereby, have been made the righteousness of God in Him. II Corinthians 5:21. He was made for a little while lower than the angels for the suffering of death. Hebrews 2:9. Christ suffered for sins once, the Just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God. I Peter 3: 18.
What does it mean to PARTAKE?
Because of the suffering, death and resurrection of the Son of God we have been made partakers of Christ. This Greek word “partakers” is “Metoches” meaning a “participant”, a “sharer” or a “partner”.
Perhaps we have tried to inventory all that we have in Christ, our possessions, our riches, our spiritual blessings; and we have scarcely dared to believe all that God’s Word tells us that we have, and all that we are, and all that we are yet to be in Christ. We are partakers of Christ. In Him “all things” and “all spiritual blessings” are ours.
Six or seven different Greek words are translated “partaker” in the Scriptures. These words are used by the Holy Spirit to tell us what it means to be a partaker of Christ. 
Believers are joint-heirs with Christ and are joined to Christ in an inseparable and eternal union; 
members of His Body, seated with Him and blessed in Him with all spiritual blessings in the heavenlies. So we join with Paul in “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light” Colossians 1:12. This Greek word “partaker”, is “meris”, meaning to “get as an allotment”, “to receive a portion”. What a portion! What an allotment! We receive it, by grace, through faith. God made us meet, or literally, “qualified” us. We are God’s workmanship. God did the work. He wrought the Divine transformation. He placed Christ where He is, far above in the heavenlies, and placed us in Christ. When we were dead He made us alive and raised us up. We are God’s workmanship. As partakers of Christ:
We are partakers of the Divine nature. II Peter 1:4
We are partakers of His holiness. Hebrews 12:10
We are partakers of the Holy Spirit. Hebrews 6:4
We are partakers of the heavenly calling. Hebrews 3:1
We are partakers of His sufferings. I Peter 4:13
We are partakers of God’s promise in Christ. Ephesians 3:6
We are partakers of grace. Philippians 1:7
We are partakers of fruit. II Timothy 2:6
We are partakers of the afflictions of the Gospel. II Timothy 1:8
We are partakers of Christ’s glory. I Peter 5: 1.
It is very interesting to trace the meanings of the different words translated “partaker” and learn of our intimate relationship, partnership and fellowship with Christ; “joint-heirs”, “sharers”, “partners”, “Co-partners”. “In Christ” and “Christ in us”. Christ partook of our nature that we might partake of His nature. We partake of His sufferings that we might partake of His glory. As the Captain of our salvation, He was made perfect through suffering.
We are partakers of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. By that grace He became poor that we, through His poverty, might become rich. The Gospel has made us rich. The Gospel has brought us peace. It is called the “gospel of peace”. Christ made peace by the blood of the cross. Christ is our peace.
Paul seems to have reached the highest expression of the Gospel of Christ when he wrote to Timothy concerning “the gospel of the glory of the Blessed God, committed to my trust.” I Timothy 1:11. Grace and glory are combined in that gospel, which offers grace and glory to every beneficiary, and declares “As He is, so are we in the world”. I John 4:17.
What a spiritual treat, what an abundant feast! Let us spiritually, seriously, prayerfully read that wonderful prayer of the Lord Jesus, John 17:9 to 26, and learn of our union, partnership, eternal glorious fellowship in the Son and in the Father. Then later on in the Book we learn that it has been the delight of the Holy Spirit to be the instrument with the Word of God to bring it about. II Thessalonians 2:13. It means much to be a partaker of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit is in the believer. The believer is in the Spirit. The believer is to walk in the Spirit, to be filled with the Spirit, and to manifest the fruit of the Spirit, as he is led and instructed by the Holy Spirit.
The partaker of Christ is the partaker of the Divine nature, because God has created in that believer the new man in righteousness and true holiness, after God’s own image. Christ is the believer’s holiness. I Corinthians 1:30.
Everything that the believer needs to please God has been provided in Christ; even the grace, the boldness, the humility, the power to be a partaker of the afflictions of the Gospel. The true Grace preacher must suffer as an evil-doer to make Paul’s gospel known. “Be not ashamed,” are the words in this connection. II Timothy 1:5 to 12. It is an up-to-date admonition. Preachers and Christian workers of today are ashamed and afraid to be partakers of the affliction of that unmixed gospel. They join up with a semi-religious movement for protection, for security and for advantage. They limit the Holy Spirit, as they take off the keen edge of the affliction of Paul’s Gospel. But if we suffer with Christ and Paul, and follow Paul as he instructed us, we will be glorified and reign with Christ. This should encourage us to an uncompromising, unmixed testimony in this religious day of confusion, compromise and condemnation.
For we are partakers of Christ’s glory that shall be revealed. I Peter 5:1. Hear the prayer of Christ in John 17:22, 24 and I Peter 5:10 and 11.
“And the glory which Thou gavest Me, I have given them; that they may be one, even as We are one.”
“Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am; that they may behold My glory, which Thou hast given Me; for Thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.”
“But the God of all grace, Who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

1 ¶  Now before the feast of the Passover, it was clear to Jesus that the time had come for him to go away from this world to the Father. Having once had love for those in the world who were his, his love for them went on to the end.
2  So while a meal was going on, the Evil One having now put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to be false to him,
3  Jesus, being conscious that the Father had put everything into his hands, and that he came from God and was going to God,
4  Got up from table, put off his robe and took a cloth and put it round him.
5  Then he put water into a basin and was washing the feet of the disciples and drying them with the cloth which was round him.
6  So he came to Simon Peter. Peter said, Lord, are my feet to be washed by you?
7  And Jesus, answering, said to him, What I do is not clear to you now, but it will be clear to you in time to come.
8  Peter said, I will never let my feet be washed by you, never. Jesus said in answer, If I do not make you clean you have no part with me.
9  Simon Peter said to him, Lord, not my feet only, but my hands and my head.
10  Jesus said to him, He who is bathed has need only to have his feet washed and then he is clean all over: and you, my disciples, are clean, but not all of you.
11  (He had knowledge who was false to him; that is why he said, You are not all clean.)
12  Then, after washing their feet and putting on his robe again, he took his seat and said to them, Do you see what I have done to you?
13  You give me the name of Master and Lord: and you are right; that is what I am.
14  If then I, the Lord and the Master, have made your feet clean, it is right for you to make one another’s feet clean.
15  I have given you an example, so that you may do what I have done to you.
16  Truly I say to you, A servant is not greater than his lord; and he who is sent is not greater than the one who sent him.
17  If these things are clear to you, happy are you if you do them.
18 ¶  I am not talking of you all: I have knowledge of my true disciples, but things are as they are, so that the Writings may come true, The foot of him who takes bread with me is lifted up against me.
19  From this time forward, I give you knowledge of things before they come about, so that when they come about you may have belief that I am he.
20  Truly I say to you, He who takes to his heart anyone whom I send, takes me to his heart; and he who so takes me, takes him who sent me.
"Peter said, I will never let my feet be washed by you, never. Jesus said in answer, If I do not make you clean you have no part with me." BBE
New Living Translation
"No," Peter protested, "you will never ever wash my feet!" Jesus replied, "Unless I wash you, you won't belong to me."
English Standard Version
Peter said to him, “You shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no share with me.”
International Standard Version
Peter told him, "You must never wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "Unless I wash you, you cannot be involved with me."
GOD'S WORD® Translation
Peter told Jesus, "You will never wash my feet." Jesus replied to Peter, "If I don't wash you, you don't belong to me."
Ritual Washing and the Priesthood
Ritual washing was a key element of Jewish practice, with elaborate procedures and requirements for cleansing those who might become “unclean” during daily life. (2) Several times in the scripture Jesus indicates that the need for this ritual washing has ended now that the messiah has come. (cf Matt. 15, Mark 7, John 2, etc) In John 13, however, we find Jesus cleansing the feet of his disciples.
One possible interpretation is as a priestly act. In Judaism, the Kohen (a member of the priestly class) has his hands washed prior to performing the Priestly Prayer. Historically, this also included washing the feet, although today they often simply remove their shoes. It is one of the rare instances where foot washing is prescribed, following the command of Exodus 30:20-21 that the priestly class “shall wash their hands and their feet” prior to coming to the altar. (3)
The foot washing in John 13 is a prelude to Jesus’ own High Priestly Prayer in John 17. In performing these ablutions, he is thus conferring priesthood on his apostles. It is a way of extending the authority of the Aaronic priesthood to the apostles.
Baptism is a symbol of our partaking of the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. It cannot save a person. Look at LUKE 23:42, ACTS 9:17-18, 1JOHN 1:9 and ROMANS 10:9.
Both the thief on the cross (LUKE 23:42) and Saul (9:17-18) were saved before being baptized. 1JOHN 1:9 states the only required condition is to confess our sins, and ROMANS 10:9 states confess with our mouth Jesus Christ, believe in our heart that God raised him from the dead, and we will be saved.
Matthew 26:26-29
Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
The First Lord’s Supper
26 As they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take and eat it; this is My body.” 27 Then He took a cup, and after giving thanks, He gave it to them and said, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 For this is My blood that establishes the covenant;[a] it is shed for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 But I tell you, from this moment I will not drink of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it in a new way[b] in My Father’s kingdom with you.”

19 And He took bread, gave thanks, broke it, gave it to them, and said, “This is My body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of Me.”
20 In the same way He also took the cup after supper and said, “This cup is the new covenant established by My blood; it is shed for you.[b]
1 Corinthians 11:23-25
Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: On the night when He was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took bread, 24 gave thanks, broke it, and said,[a] “This is My body, which is[b] for you. Do this in remembrance of Me.”
25 In the same way, after supper He also took the cup and said, “This cup is the new covenant established by My blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

ARISE AND SHINE, Isaiah 60:1

Prophecy for the year 2013

Happy 2013! If you are a careful follower of my sermons, you would recognize that, I am into times and seasons unveiling unto the church what God has in store for the season. This also takes me to Scripture Gematria or Numerology is part of studying the Bible which assigns certain numbers to meanings.Unfortunately people and Christians in particular start to focus on the number instead of the God of the numbers.

THE SNARE OF SIN - A Weapon of War!

"To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God. Eph 3:10

For surely [there is] no enchantment against Jacob, neither [is there] any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought!" Nu 23:23 

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Eph 6:12

And I heard the word of the Lord saying,: "our suffienciency is not of ourselves, for it is God who gives us the will and the strength to do whateve we do". Let, therefore, no man glory." 

Then I asked, why then do we walk in this sinful manner, provoking ourselves and wantonly parading our works as if it is of ourselves. This sin is called the pride of life. This is the sin into which David fell into and caused the death of seventy thousand people who were under his rule.
