Do you feel condemned by the Word of God?
–then you are under the influence of satan
Do you feel convicted by the Word of God?
–then you are under the influence of the Holy Spirit of God
Do you reject the Word of God because it makes you feel bad?
–then you are playing into the hand of the devil who will do anything to keep you from coming to Jesus and receiving from God our Father what he designed for your life: your identity in Christ and the river of Christ’s glorified Spirit (new wine) in your new, born-again-of-God pure heart (new wineskin); going into the Father’s Business as a son: finding the lost, healing, delivering, setting free by opening their eyes to see so they can choose to TURN from the dominion of darkness and be TRANSFERRED into the kingdom of the beloved Son of God, where we have Redemption, the forgiveness of sins, sharing in the inheritance of the saints in LIGHT (Colossians 1:12-13); TURNING from the power of satan (under the influence of the power of sin, death, and the works of the devil) to the Power of God (under the influence of the Spirit of resurrection Life Romans 8:1-39; 1 Corinthians 1:18-2:16), and receiving a place among those sanctified by faith (Acts 26:18) in the Spirit of God in glorified Christ Jesus’ one body and one Spirit of God, the Church of God, the Bride of Christ. Only IN CHRIST are you are NOW the body of Christ AND individually members of it (1 Corinthians 12:27).
Those who believe you have to die physically first to receive the Promises of God, it is done unto you as you believe; if you believe you can have the righteousness of Jesus in God by FAITH, not only have the promise of salvation, but by the divine Power of God our Father and his Christ, be granted ALL THINGS that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who calls us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great Promises, that THROUGH THESE you may escape the corruption of the world system of beliefs, and PARTAKE of the divine nature, it is done unto you AS you believe.
Do you run to Jesus if or when the Word of God makes you feel bad?
–then you are convicted under the influence of the Holy Spirit, and you know Jesus tells us to ask and RECEIVE; seek and FIND; knock and the Door OPENS that no one can shut, so Jesus can shut the doors that no one can open (Isaiah 22:22; Revelation 3:7).
“Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good endowment and every perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights without variation or shadow due to change. Of his own Will he brings us forth by the Word of Truth that we should be a KIND of first fruits of his creatures” (James 1:16-18). IF any one is IN CHRIST, you are a new creature (2 Cor 5:17) of the new creation of the new covenant in the Blood, Water, and Spirit of glorified Christ Jesus (1 John 2:20-5:20), you RECEIVE within, by faith, so the Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus can impart, activate, rekindle what is OF Christ (2 Timothy 1:6), and blazes away what is not of Christ, leaving HIS pure, refined gold, and the white garment of unity with Christ: HIS salvation, righteousness, and unity with God our Father.
Do you test every spirit (1 John 4:1), and take every thought captive to obey Christ and cast down every fearful imagination that comes from the influence of satan, by the Divine Power that destroys strongholds; reminding yourself that in Christ you are his, with HIS glorified Spirit in you (2 Cor 10:3-7; Romans 8:8-9)?
–then you can know you are not only under the influence of HOLY Spirit, but you ask and receive Holy Spirit within you, making your BODY a new, holy temple of God where Holy Spirit dwells; a new temple of the Holy Spirit WITHIN, from God our Father, HIS glory of Christ in you as your new light; HIS fire of Christ surrounding you like a Garment; HIS Lamb in you as your new lamp, with a continual River of Holy Spirit, glory light, and fire to dissolve the old and form the new of Christ in you, as you choose to abide in Christ by faith: grace upon grace and glory to glory.
You walk by faith not sight, until you ask by faith AND receive the eye salve, the eye anointing (Revelation 3:18), not doubting or wavering or distrusting God (Romans 4:13-24) to SEE the evidence and substance; the actual REALITY of the Living Christ: Living Water of the Word, Living Bread of Life: a river of new wine of Christ’s glorified Spirit into your new, pure heart wineskin (Matthew 9:17; Luke 5:37-39), so you can raise holy hands and experience the King of Glory coming into your being, mighty and strong in battle (Psalm 24), your Help-Mate in times of trouble; the Strength in your weaknesses; the Great Physician into any symptom of illness; the Wonderful Counselor into anything troubling your mind; the Spirit of Truth when you wonder about things the world is believing; the Defense Counsel of God when you are being falsely accused, slandered, false witness against you, lied about, or the devil using others to try to shame, blame, guilt, or condemn you for standing for righteousness; the Advocate for the children of God until they become strong in the Word and able to wield the Word of God as a Sword of the Spirit, using the weapons of Righteousness in both hands (2 Cor 6:7; 1 John 2:12-3:12)) as born again believers, growing and maturing in Christ to the full stature of the measure of Christ; fully knit (Ephesians 4:15-24; Colossians 2:2-19) into the ONE body and ONE Spirit of God in Christ and Christ in you (Ephesians 4:4; John 15:4).
“ALL things are possible for those who believe” Mark 9:23
Do you have Peace that surpasses understanding?
–then you have come to Jesus and asked and received Christ in you; sought FIRST the kingdom of God and HIS righteousness and found the kingdom of God: his righteousness and peace and joy IN Christ IN the HOLY Spirit (Romans 14:17; Titus 3:5: washed, regenerated, and renewed IN the Holy Spirit POURED OUT through our glorified Lord Jesus Christ); knocked and kept knocking until the Door to God our Father opened so he could send you HIS Spirit in HIS Son to knock on your heart door and come in and eat with you and you with HIM, so you are ABLE to conquer unbelief in God our Father and conquer the beliefs of the world’s babylonian system that lead to destruction, and be granted to be seated WITH Christ AS he conquered and sits WITH God our Father (Revelation 3:20-21) now and is to come and forever and ever. Amen. Hallelujah!
“In the world you will have tribulation, BUT in Christ you will have his Peace, and be of good cheer, for he has ALREADY overcome the world” John 16:33
“The Word has already made you clean. Abide in Me, and I in you” ~Jesus in John 15:3-4
“Because you have KEPT My Word of patient endurance [even while the whole world seems to have come under the influence of the activity of satan], I will KEEP YOU from the hour of trial that is coming on the WHOLE WORLD to try those who dwell on the earth [IN Christ you have COME OUT of the world as you were baptized into Christ by the Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus, to witness Christ through faith in God our Father and spread the fragrance of Christ’s Victory to a “stinkin’ thinking” world (2 Corinthians 2:14); not witness and spread the faith in fear, that is of the world system of fallen Adam and his sons under the father of lies]” (Revelation 3:10).
IN Christ the whole FULLNESS of God dwells bodily, and you COME to FULLNESS of life IN him (Colossians 2:9-10), so hold fast to the Head of all rule and authority and learn, receive, hear, see, what abiding IN CHRIST means (Colossians 2:11-19; Philippians 4:9, 13, 19) so you can DO. “IF with Christ you DIED to the elemental spirits of the universe, why do you still live as if you still belonged to the world?” (Colossians 2:20).
“You must REMEMBER, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; they said, ‘In the last time there will be scoffers, following their OWN ungodly passions [lust and pride].’ It is these who set up DIVISIONS [trying to separate races through man-made theories of devils; trying to separate males and females and nations from God, by spirits of confusion making you doubt who God created you to be; spreading FEAR to cause people to TAKE ungodly solutions and teach ungodly things], worldly people, devoid of the Spirit. But you, beloved, build yourselves up on your most HOLY faith; pray IN the Holy Spirit; keep yourselves in the Love of God; wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life [wait until you are clothed with Power from on High; baptized with Jesus; baptized INTO Christ; putting ON Christ; all one with God our Father (not one with the world)]. And convince some who doubt, save some by snatching them out of the fire [of sin that leads to death and works of the devil]; on some have mercy with fear, HATING the garment spotted by flesh [of all sons of fallen Adam]. Now to him who is ABLE to keep you from falling AND to present you without blemish [betrothed as a pure bride to her One Husband 2 Cor 11:2] before the presence of his glory with rejoicing, to the only God, our Savior THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before ALL time AND NOW and forever. Amen” Jude 1:17-25
