The feet represent moving forward. Feet are the external representation of our root. When we are rooted and grounded in Christ, we are rooted in Love that is connected with God. Our root is fully connected to our heart and mind in the higher Mind of Christ above the highest heavens. If the root is holy, so are the branches…
“As therefore you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so live in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving” Colossians 2:6-7
If the root has taken a downward spiral into fear, survival, trauma and sexual perversion, the branches will be corrupted. When the root is cut off from God and Love, the fruit is spoiled and rotten. When we are rooted in Christ we flourish!
Beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news! Beautiful are the feet who are washed by Jesus, are served by Jesus to live in Jesus to worship God, and bring Christ to the world over and over through us! The Good News is Christ in us replacing whatever is hurting, wounding, traumatizing, uncomfortable, painful, debilitating, crippling, disfiguring, imprisoning, or oppressing us with the balm of the Holy Spirit. The Good News is Christ is bigger in us than anything on the outside. The Good News is replacing our sin and mistakes with Christ’s righteousness, right standing, and right relationship. The Good News is Christ replacing our fears with God’s Love; turning our sorrow into his Joy; and transferring us from the dominion of darkness into Christ’s glorious, light-filled kingdom of heaven on earth.
When we wash our robes in the blood of the Lamb we have right to eat of the tree of life whose leaves are for healing. There is no sickness in heaven, so the tree of life is for human beings on earth who turn to Jesus and receive his Spirit, the Christ, the anointing, the balm, the Living Water that Jesus said will satisfy our thirst so that we never thirst again! This goes against the world’s teaching, against the religious spirit’s teachings that we must stay thirsty. We realize that the Good News means we do not get up on the cross with a dead Jesus. No! We die with Jesus, we resurrect with Christ, and we receive the Living Water, the Holy Spirit and Fire of God from the Living Jesus, the ascended Christ!
The Good News is we can intimately know the ascended Christ, receiving his Spirit and Fire, and all the fullness of God! The Good News is we can do all that Jesus did and even greater things because HE SAID SO!
“See to it that no one makes a prey of you by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fulness of the Godhead dwells bodily, and you have come to fulness of life in him, who is the head of all rule and authority” Colo 2:8-10
Religion has mixed philosophy, psychology, mythology, pagan rituals, human wisdom and elemental spirits; the mixture that God says he hates in Revelation 2:2 “I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear evil men but have tested those who call themselves apostles but are not, and found them to be false…I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember then from what you have fallen, repent, and do the works you did at first…for this you have, you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate…to him who conquers I will grant to eat the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God!”
What were the works of the first century Christians? Healing, delivering, setting people free from bondage, opening blind eyes, opening deaf ears, making the lame walk, miracles, signs and wonders that showed the Power of God was greater than any evil, devil, demon, or fallen angel. Simon Magus tried to buy this power; it is not for sale; it is the Good News: the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in all who believe the Truth of the finished work of Christ in their heart, speak the Truth of the ascended Christ with their mouth, and receive the Holy Spirit and Fire from the ascended Christ! Jesus is not dead on a cross; Jesus is not a crucifix, a statue, or tablets of stone. Jesus is the ascended Christ, perfectly one with our Father above the highest heavens, at the Source of God, who sends the Fire and Holy Spirit to live in us filling us with all the fullness of God.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good tidings to the afflicted; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 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 garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle 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. They shall build up the ancient ruins, they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities (human bodies), the devastations of many generations…you shall be called the priests of the Lord…you shall eat the wealth of the nations and in their riches you shall glory. Instead of your shame you will have a double portion, instead of dishonor you shall rejoice…yours shall be everlasting joy. For I love justice, I hate robbery and wrong; I will make an everlasting covenant with them…he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels” Isaiah 61:1-11
Christ in us is the hope of glory; Christ flowing as living water in and through us is the glory!
The Good News is we can be anointed with the same Spirit that came down from God at Jesus’ baptism and stayed on him! The same Spirit that drove him into the wilderness to conquer temptation successfully. The same Spirit that resurrected Jesus can resurrect us! The testimony/witness of Jesus at his baptism, on the mountain of transfiguration, and the ascension is the prophecy spoken over our life! This is Good News!!!!
“Behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you; but stay in the city until you are clothed with Power from on high” Luke 24:49. Those who spread the false gospel did not wait until they were baptized with the Spirit and Fire of God and they are speaking from human precepts and their father satan’s religious doctrine.
The Good News is we no longer live with external laws or rules; they are written on our heart and mind as we transform by the renewal of our mind. We no longer live under karma; we no longer live based on what we have done or not done in our lives; we live based on what Jesus has done! When Christ lives in us, all the fullness of deity lives in us (Colo 2:9-10).
The Good News is we are given a completely blank slate with Jesus as we begin to live with his Spirit within us, making us a new creation! We conquer our mind and thoughts by keeping our mind in Christ’s Mind, in heavenly places with Christ while our body is on earth. When we conquer we are given hidden manna (the food Jesus said we did not know about John 4:32), a white stone (an earthly purified, refined transfigured body?) with a new name (Rev 2:17). The Good News is that we can be completely transformed, transfigured and transferred into Christ’s Kingdom on earth, no longer flesh and carnal mind, but a new creation in Christ, rooted and built up in him, with his mind, heart, body and Spirit!!!!
The flesh and blood, old Adam human, with a carnal mind, is rooted in fear, motivated by sexual desires and physical senses disconnected from the heart, mind, Love and Christ. This is the downward spiral in the old earth that leads to judgment. But when we turn and return to God, repent and change our mind, our root sexual energy turns and returns to unite with Christ’s Spirit of Love and we are upbuilt in Christ! “Again take root downward and bear fruit upward” Isaiah 37:31. Our spiritual senses open and we reconnect body, mind and spirit with God’s Spirit! We become a new creation!
Root again in Love, in Christ! Be upbuilt in Love and bear fruit of the Holy Spirit! The Good News is Jesus is alive to turn your energy from a downward spiral to be upbuilt into his body of Love, Peace and Joy in the NHOEN. Jesus can return you to the Source of all life and fill us with all the fullness of God through the Holy Spirit!
The Good News: you can put off the body of flesh, be buried with Christ in baptism, be raised with him through faith in the working of God, and be reborn with Christ, forgiven, bond canceled, no more legal demands (they are nailed to the cross), principalities and powers are disarmed, and be given victory and triumph in overcoming (Colo 2:10-15). We are more than conquerors in Christ! This is Good News!
Do not submit to regulations according to human precepts and doctrines (Colo 2:20-23). With Christ you died to the world; with the ascended Christ you become perfectly one with our Father! When you receive the Spirit and Fire of God, you receive all the fullness of the Godhead! This is the Good News!
“Christ may dwell in your heart through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in Love, may have the Power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the Love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God” Ephesians 3:17-21
Good News: everything is possible with God and I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me!
“Now to him who by the Power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen” Ephesians 3:20-21
Good News! Beautiful feet!
