We are either like the world or like the Word; we are either as the world is now, dark and demonic (Revelation 18:2-3) or as Christ is now (1 John 4:17b). We are either AS the harlot who hasn’t forsaken idols or the god of this world or AS the Bride who has forsaken the god of this world belonging only to Christ, having HIS Spirit, to have and to hold HIS Right Hand, as he is at the Right Hand of God the Father; betrothed as a pure Bride through the Blood, Water, Spirit and Words of God through Jesus, the Power and Wisdom of God, the Name Above every other name that can be name; taking the New Married Name joined to the Son of Righteousness under the Father of Righteousness; having the glory coming down from the Throne, awakened, arising, shining with the light of the glory of Christ radiating from Christ in you, hidden with Christ in God, the Majestic Glory.
It is the Glory of God to conceal; it is the glory of kings to SEEK. You can have what you FIND; you become what you SEE. Have the glory AS a bride coming down from the Throne, a new heaven and new earth and new River of Water of Life: Spirit and fire and glory (Revelation ch 21-22); His Bride makes herself READY (19:7) for surely the Bridegroom is coming soon (22:20) so TAKE the Water of Life without price (21:17); for Jesus ALREADY paid the FULL PRICE, ransomed for God from EVERY tribe and tongue and people and nation, made you a KINGDOM and priests to our God; and you shall reign on earth (5:9-10); ransomed by the Blood of Jesus, by the finished work of the Cross: the Power of God that raised Jesus, raises you by the same Spirit of God. When Jesus was lifted up he draws all to HIMSELF (John 12:32).
Jesus’ first spoken Words to me were, “Come to Me, you are weary and heavy-laden with burdens. I will GIVE you rest.” I found the rest of the message in Matthew 11:28-29, going on to say in the written Word, “TAKE My yoke and learn from Me, for I am humble hearted and you will FIND rest for your soul.” “The Spirit of the Lord gives you REST. So Thou lead Thy people, to make for Thyself a GLORIOUS Name [in Christ]” (Isaiah 63:14). When the Living Word (Revelation 1:12-18) comes to you in glory in Spirit in Truth, Christ as he is now is Living and Active to cut all division from God and unite you to HIMSELF, knowing the thoughts and intentions of your heart; showing you so you can take EVERY thought captive to obey the Head of your spirit and soul and body, when you yield your will for God’s Will so He can begin to act, working in you ALL of Christ so you can work out what God works in (Philippians 2:12) so you can begin to SHINE as lights in the world HOLDING FAST the Word of Life (2:13-16).
“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will give you Light” Ephesians 5:14
“Arise, shine, for your light has come and the glory of the Lord rises upon you” Isaiah 60:1-2
“Light shines out of darkness, shining in your heart to give light of the knowledge of the GLORY of God in the face [presence] of Christ [in you]…HAVING this treasure in earthen vessels” 2 Corinthians 4:6-7
“HAVE the glory…radiating…glory within is your light; the Lamb is your lamp” Revelation 21:11,23
“Drink deeply with delight from the abundance of GLORY” Isaiah 66:11
“TAKE the Water of Life without price” Revelation 22:17
IF you continue in the Word, you will KNOW the Word, the Way, the Truth, the Life, and the TRUTH will make you free (John 8:31-32). Those who are OF God HEAR the Words of God; the reason the world doesn’t hear them is they are NOT OF God, but OF the father of lies, OF fallen Adam’s nature (8:47). God convicts you of sin by the HOLY Spirit; the devil tempts you to sin and then condemns you. BUT in Christ there is now no condemnation under the Spirit of Life (Romans 8:1) and WHEN the Spirit of Truth comes to you, he guides you into ALL the truth (John 16:13). But if you cannot bear the Truth you will not listen to the Word and the Spirit (16:12) and continue to believe the lies, falsehood, deception, manipulation, controlled by darkness under the dominion of evil, instead of being delivered and transferred into the kingdom of the beloved Son, where you HAVE redemption, the forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:13).
Jesus has ALREADY done everything God sent him to do; now it is up to each individual to COME to Jesus and FIND what is already given; seeking FIRST the kingdom of God and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS and all OF the Son of Righteousness is given (Matthew 6:33). Self-righteousness is “a polluted garment” (Isaiah 64:6). The New Garment of Christ is Salvation, Righteousness, and white wedding garment of the Bride who has the Bridegroom King of kings and Lord of lords, the Word and Spirit of God; the wife of the Lamb, the Lord of lords and King of kings, who is called and chosen and faithful to the Lamb of God as the world wars against God (Revelation 17:14). Ask and receive the Spirit of God (Matthew 7:11). Believe and RECEIVE! “Go; be it done for you as you have believed” ~Jesus in Matthew 8:13
The new heaven and new earth comes down from God out of heaven AS a bride so you can HAVE the glory (Revelation 21:2,11,23); fire power of salvation IN CHRIST and in the Bride who belongs to Christ by having HIS SPIRIT (Romans 8:9). “I will not keep silent or rest UNTIL her vindication goes forth AS brightness, and her salvation AS a BURNING torch…seeing the GLORY…called by a NEW NAME…having a crown of beauty…a royal diadem…no longer called Forsaken or Desolate but called My Delight is in her…Married; for the Lord DELIGHTS in you…AS the Bridegroom rejoices over the Bride” Isaiah 62:1-5
AS Christ is now, so are we to be in this world (1 John 4:17b). The Bride looks LIKE the Bridegroom who sanctifies her wholly, spirit and soul and body; cleanses in HIS own pure Blood of ALL unrighteousness, washes in the pure Water of Life with HIS Word to abide in Him and He in her; made spotless, without wrinkle or blemish or any such thing; nourished and cherished; made one in the Spirit and in Truth in Christ, in glory in light JOINED to the Light of Christ, the Word and the Spirit of Christ (Ephesians 5:23-32; 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24; John 8:12, 11:9-11,40, 12:36, 14:16-20,23, 17:17-23).
The Spirit and the Bride are “married” joined together, united in one Spirit in Christ in God, and saying, “Come…TAKE” what Jesus already finished, done, new, now, and is to come until the Door closes (Matthew 25:1-13). “Watch therefore, for you know not the day nor the hour.” “I am with you ALWAYS, to the close of the age” (Jesus in Matthew 28:20). Jesus prays for the Father to send you another Comforter, Counselor, Intercessor, Helper, Help from Above, Help-mate, the Convicter of sin, righteousness, and judgment, leading to repentance, turning from darkness to light, turning from the power of satan to the Power of God, Teacher, Guide, Leader, Re-MIND-er, Re-MEMBER-er, One with Father and Son, Breath of Life, Mover, Shaker, Fire to dissolve the old to behold the new latter Glory, Changer, Transformer, Transfigurer, Embodier, Empowerer, Enabler to know Jesus as Savior AND Lord, Giver of eyes to see, ears to hear, heart to perceive spiritually, born again of God of Spirit, Leads the sons of God baptized by Holy Spirit and fire, the baptism of Jesus, Revealer of the Word, Enlightens our understanding of the Word, Writer of the Word on your heart and kept on your mind, Giver of Gifts of God, Brings forth the new creation of the new creation of the new covenant by the Will of God in the Word of Truth and Life, the Spirit of the Way, the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of Life, the Spirit of the resurrection, the Spirit of the Word, the Spirit of Holiness, the Spirit of the Father and Son, the Spirit who reveals the mysteries of God and helps you steward the mysteries, Revealer Who reveals Revelation of Christ as he is NOW, the Spirit of Prophesy is the Testimony of Jesus, Christ’s Spirit, fire, oil, eyes to see the GLORY to become LIKE Christ, the Spirit of the Lord, the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, the Spirit of Counsel and Might, the Spirit of Knowledge, the Spirit of the Fear of Lord that is reverential Awe and Wonder of the Creator! the Spirit that fruits Christ Light, Righteousness and Spirit, the Spirit that is the Gift that gifts! resurrection Life Giver! Sealer until we acquire possession of all the inheritance as co-heirs with Christ, Sanctifier, Consecrator, Drawer, Filler, Anointer, Flowing, Overflowing River of fire and glory and new Life! Power of God in our weaknesses, healing Power, miracle Power, utterances of Power, Power of faith, Power of prophesy, Power of discernment, Power of Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Spirit; the Joy of the Lord is our strength! the Presence of Joy, the River of Christ’s Presence! indwelling Spirit of God’s Presence, making your body a NEW temple of God, and SO MUCH MORE…
“He who has an ear, let him HEAR what the SPIRIT says to the churches” Revelation 2:7,11,17,29, 3:6,13
“IF any one hears My Voice and opens the door, I will come in…Conquer and be granted to sit with Me” ~ glorified Jesus in Revelation 3:20-21:
the Words of Him who holds the seven stars in his Right Hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands, the Words of the First and the Last, who died and came to life, the Words of Him who has the sharp two-edged Sword, the Words of the Son of God, who has eyes like FLAMES of FIRE, and whose feet are like burnished bronze, the Words of Him who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars, the Words of the Holy One, the True One, who has the Key of David, Who opens and not one shall shut, Who shuts and no one can open, the Words of the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the beginning of God’s creation, Face like sun shining in full strength, Voice like sound of many waters, head and hair white as wool, white as snow, one like a son of man
When we come to Christ we can become LIKE he is now by the Power of the Name Jesus, Power of the Blood of Jesus, Water of Life, Spirit of resurrection life, fire, and glory!
