“For no other foundation can any one lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ” 1 Corinthians 3:11
all other foundations give way; fail; pass away
“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. See to it that no one makes a prey of you by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human traditions, according to elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fullness of deity and the Godhead dwells bodily, and you have come to fullness of life in him” Colossians 2:6-10
Christ is asked and received as Cornerstone in your innermost heart, and everything in your spirit, soul, body, and life is regenerated in the image and likeness of the Cornerstone that Holy Spirit establishes, keeps, sustains, renews, refreshes, revives, reforms, regenerates, as we choose to abide in Christ and Christ in you. We can do nothing apart from Christ, and the “double-minded” receive nothing from God our Father. We die to sin and come alive to righteousness; we die to our old self, and come alive to God.
“Do you not know that you who join yourself to a prostitute (harlot) become one body? For, as it is written, ‘The two become one flesh.’ But you who are united to the Lord becomes one spirit with God. Shun immorality. Every other sin which a man commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral man sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God?” 1 Corinthians 6:16-19
If you join yourself to the harlot, false church, or false religion, false prophet: the lies and deception of the media and social media, or the beast mind from eating of satan’s tree of the knowledge of good and evil: taking information in that is a mixture of lies with truth so that the lies negate the Truth and destroy Life, you are on the wide path of destruction: the easy path to just go along with what is going on; eyes unable to see, ears unable to hear, heart unable to spiritually perceive to turn (repent) and be healed, saved, delivered from evil, delivered from the dominion of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of the beloved Son, forgiven, and set free to love God and love one another as yourself.
Come to Jesus, all who labor and are heavy laden with burdens, and he will give you rest. Take his yoke upon you and learn from Christ, for he is gentle, humble and compassionate, and you will find rest for your souls. For Christ’s yoke is easy and his burden is light (Matthew 11:28-29).
Join, “marry,” unite with Christ and “learn Christ” by the Holy Spirit. By the new covenant in Jesus’ Blood, Christ creates in Himself (new creation) one new man (new creature) in place of the two (Jewish Jesus and Gentile you) so making peace within you (no longer fallen Adam and you), reconciling you both to God in one body through the Cross, thereby bringing hostility to an end; both you and Jesus have access in one Spirit to the Father (Ephesians 2:15-18). Be renewed in the spirit of your mind and put on the new nature, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness (Ephesians 4:23-24).
“If any one is in Christ, you are a new creation, the old is gone, behold, the new has come” 2 Corinthians 5:17
We are transformed by the renewing Mind of Christ, in us, by the Holy Spirit (Romans 12:2). “I remind you to rekindle the Gift of God that is within you through the laying on of hands, for God did not give you a spirit of fear or timidity, but a Spirit of Power and Love and a sound Mind/ self-control” (2 Timothy 1:6-7). The Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness, kindness, patience, faithfulness, and self-control. “The Bride makes herself ready” (Revelation 19:7). “Build yourself up on your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit, keep yourself in the Love of God; wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life [eternal life matters!]. And convince some who doubt, save some by snatching them out of the fire; on some have mercy with fear hating the garment spotted by the flesh” (Jude 1:20-24). Take the sound mind of Christ in exchange for your world mind that is full of fear, anxiety, sorrow, loss, depression, sadness, hopelessness, helplessness, doubt and uncertainty. The Mind of Christ gives you the higher thoughts and ways of God our Father; and taking the River of Water of Life, pours into you all you need to live, move and have your being according to God’s perfect Design: purity, holiness, righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. The “narrow” path of life is found in Christ; in his Living Presence there is fullness of joy, in his right hand are pleasures forevermore (Psalm 16:11; Acts 2:28). Jesus sits at the Right Hand of God our Father; when we conquer we are granted the right to sit with Jesus. Take the Word and use the Sword of the Spirit! stop eating of satan’s tree and eat of the tree of life! “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches: to him who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life” (Revelation 2:7-3:21).
“Heaven and earth will all pass away, but My Words will remain forever” ~Jesus
Abba Father, we ask you for Christ’s new heaven and new earth where righteousness dwells to be revealed and manifested for your people, in Jesus’ Powerful Name above every name, in the matchless, wonder-working power of your Blood, Water and Spirit, now and is to come, from glory to glory, grace upon grace, the fullness of the riches of glory in Christ. Amen. Hallelujah!
When you know the Love of Christ beyond knowledge, he fills you with all the fullness of God so the Holy Spirit can work in you and through you; the River from the Throne filling and overflowing; pouring rivers of living water (Christ Presence, Spirit and Life) from you to the “ends of the earth,” covering the earth like water covers the seas, bringing the knowledge of God and his glory of Christ, reverential awe and wonder by the Spirit of the Lord, wisdom, understanding, counsel, and might.
“God is the Source of our life in Christ Jesus whom God made our wisdom, our righteousness, sanctification and redemption…demonstration of the Spirit and power…Imparted to the mature a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glorification…What eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who LOVE him, God reveals to you through the Spirit” 1 Cor 1:30-2:10
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world” and in Christ and Christ in you, “you are the light of the world.”
“No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar or under a bushel, but on a stand, that those that enter may see the light (literally and figuratively and spiritually). Your eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is sound, your whole body is full of light; but when your seeing is not sound, your body is full of darkness. Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness (false light of lucifer). If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, it will be wholly bright, as when a lamp with its rays gives you light” Luke 11:33-36
“I saw no temple in the city for its temple IS the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need for external light for the glory of God is its light, and its lamp is the Lamb” Revelation 21:22-23
“Do you not know that you are God’s temple, and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?” 1 Cor 3:16
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid” (Matthew 5:14). In Christ and Christ in you is a new city of God radiating the light of Christ’s life and Spirit (resurrection matters! eternal life matters!). Christ Jesus says, “Abide in Me and I in you” (John 15:4). This is the Word of Life containing the Spirit of Life. The Words Jesus said, says, and will continue to say, have the power to change your desires to God’s desires and the power to live, move and have your being in Christ, doing God’s Will on earth as it is in heaven, bringing his Kingdom everywhere you go; releasing the river of Christ flowing through you. Christ in you is God’s righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit; apart from Christ you can do nothing because you don’t have the “in the Spirit” part. The devil can have no part in Jesus; Jesus is Light with no part dark (1 John 1:5). We exchange our fallen Adamic spirit for God our Father and his Christ’s Spirit. Jesus taught you must be born again of God, of Water and of Spirit (John 3:3-15). “Whosoever believes in Jesus may have eternal life” (John 3:15). Eternal Life matters! All who are led by the Spirit are sons of God; mind set on the Spirit (life and peace), living by the Spirit, fruiting the Spirit, walking by the Spirit, caught up in the Spirit, in the one body and one Spirit of Christ on earth as it is in heaven. Having the desires of the Spirit, led by the Spirit, you are not under the law of sin, death and works of the devil, but under the law of the Spirit of Life (Matthew 6:10; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 2:16-18). Eternal Life matters; the works of the flesh are opposed to God and come from satan’s tree: sexual sin, impurity, licentiousness, debauchery, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, selfishness, dissension, part spirit, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. “I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. All those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its old passions and desires” (Galatians 5:19-24). Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled, (Christ in you) is a tree of life (Proverbs 13:12). “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life” (Proverbs 11:30). “The fear of the Lord prolongs life, but the years of the wicked will be short. The hope of the righteous ends in gladness, but the expectation of the wicked comes to nought. The Lord is a stronghold to those whose way is upright, but destruction to evil doers. The righteous will never be moved…The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the treacherous are taken captive by their lust (greed)…the expectation of the godless comes to nought. The righteous is delivered from trouble, but the wicked gets into trouble instead. With their mouth the godless try to destroy you, but by knowledge of God and his glory the righteous are delivered. When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices; and when the wicked perish there are shouts of gladness. By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted” Proverbs 10:27-11:11. “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. A servant who deals wisely has the King of Glory’s favor, but his wrath falls on one who acts shamefully…A gentle tongue is a tree of life…In the house of the righteous there is much treasure, but trouble befalls the income of the wicked…The prayer of the upright is God’s delight. The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord, but he loves those who pursue righteousness…A cheerful heart has a continuous feast…The path of the upright is a level highway…The wise man’s path leads upward to life, and he avoids Sheol beneath. The Lord tears down the house of the proud, but maintains the widow’s…He hears the prayers of the righteous…The humble are honored…Commit your work to the Lord and your plans will be established” Proverbs 14:34-16:3.
“Always pray and do not lose heart…Keep saying, ‘Vindicate me against my adversary.’ Because this widow bothers me, I will vindicate her or she will wear me out by her persistence. The Lord says, ‘Hear what the unrighteous judge says and how much MORE will the Righteous Judge vindicate his elect, who cry out day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will vindicate speedily. Have Faith” Luke 18:1-8
“A little leaven leavens the whole lump. I have confidence that you will take no other view than Christ’s and he who is troubling you will bear God’s judgment whoever he is” Galatians 5:9
Know and pay attention to the True Shepherd (Revelation 7:17; Psalm 23); eat the Word and drink the Living Water of Christ’s Life and Spirit. When the old is gone, the new growth appears, and the herbage from the mountain of God is gathered, and the Lamb provides you with your new white garment” (Proverb 27:23-26).
Do not build up again what Jesus died to remove (Galatians 2:18-21).
