Paul had a radical life-changing, name-changing encounter with the living, glorified Christ, whose fiery presence knocked him to the ground, blinding him for three days. In the middle of the day he saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining around him. Then he heard Jesus’ voice say, ‘Saul, why do you persecute me? It hurts YOU…rise and stand…I have delivered you, to open eyes so others may turn from darkness to light and from the power of satan to God, receive forgiveness of sins and be sanctified by faith in the finished work of the Cross of Jesus (Acts 26:12-18)
The sun of righteousness rises with healing in its wings (Malachi 4:2)
Righteousness dwells in a new heaven and a new earth (2 Peter 1:3-4, 16-19, 3:13). When we come to Christ we yoke to His righteousness to learn righteousness to be the righteousness of God WITH Christ Jesus.
Without being unveiled by Christ, you hear but never understand, see but can’t perceive, your heart darkened by the world, making it impossible to perceive with your eyes, hear with your ears, and understand with your heart, to turn for Jesus to heal you (Acts 28:26-27)
A hardened mind comes from the veil remaining unlifted that only Christ the Savior can take away…when you turn to the Lord the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit…with unveiled face we behold the glory of the Lord, changing into His likeness from glory to glory; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit, who heals, delivers and sets us free! The “god of this world” has blinded the minds of the unbelievers to keep them from seeing the light. But our Father shines the light of the knowledge of the glory of God, the light and presence of Christ Jesus, into our unveiled soul. The treasure Christ can give you is the riches of his glory, knowledge, wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, power, authority, love, light and a pure holy Spirit, the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead. The purpose of the Words Jesus speaks to you, life and Spirit, is so the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies, in our mortal flesh (2 Corinthians 3:14-4:15) giving us Christ nature through Christ Spirit so we may arise and shine, a new city of God in spiritual Zion! “The Lord is Here” “His Delight in you” “Married” (union with the Father through Christ by the Holy Spirit) Isaiah 62:1-12; 43:18-19; Ezekiel 48:35; Revelation 3:12; Hebrews 12:18-29; Matthew 5:14!
Jesus says, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill” Arise, shine with Christ light and glory! When you are in the world but not OF the world, a new creature born OF God, you are a new city! NHONE!
Messiah prays for believers who speak from their heart made pure by the Blood, clean by the Word, transformed by the Holy Spirit; as he consecrated himself FOR OUR SAKE, you may also be consecrated in truth and receive the glory of Christ only Jesus can give us from His Father: light with no darkness at all, so we may be in Christ and Christ in you as he is in his Father, perfectly one, so where Jesus is in Spirit, we are in this world (John 17:17-23; 1 John 4:17).
As we think in our heart, so we are. When we learn Christ by heart, through the Holy Spirit and fire sent to us, we become like-minded with his thoughts, emotions and will. We take every anti-Christ thought captive, we repent, change our minds, take the higher thoughts of God in our heart that renew, restore, regenerate and reform our being through the Spirit of God.
Do not be deceived: every good endowment and every perfect gift come down from heaven out of God. Earnestly desire the higher gifts. Ask and receive. When we know the truth, we are open to receive ALL the fullness of Christ who is the fullness of the Godhead; impossible in the natural, possible with the Spirit and fire sent to live in you that consumes all that is not of Christ, to live gloriously victoriously triumphant in Christ and Christ in you! giving God the Glory now and forever and ever. Amen. Hallelujah!
