Prayer as Life; Pray from Christ in God

Intimate prayer is unceasing, for it is the very life of God flowing within the redeemed of the Lord. Prayer is intimate relationship with the Holy One in our spirit and soul and body. Prayer as our life is the Living One upon us, with, and in us by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus says Our Father who art in heaven is Holy, Perfect, and hallowed forever, therefore we ask in His Name and receive the Spirit of the Living God who comes down from heaven to endow us and give us every perfect spiritual gift from above without variation or shadow of change, brought forth by the Word of Truth to be a kind of first fruit new creature in the likeness of Christ in the image of God (James 1:17-18). By the Holy Spirit, the Breath of Life breathes us into existence, from what did not exist before we invited Christ to live, move and have His being in us.

We take the Mind of Christ; ask for our spiritual senses to open and be activated: eyes to see, ears to hear, and receive the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding. We ask that when we open our mouths, the Holy Spirit fills and gives us words to speak in love. We taste and see that God is Good; we smell the fragrance of Christ and begin to discern spirits. Remember God; think on His Name. “They shall be mine…then once more you shall distinguish between the righteous and the wicked” Malachi 3:18

Thy Kingdom come as we ask and are given a New Heart of Christ as we invite Jesus to be enthroned upon our heart. The kingdom of the beloved Son is established in our heart and the living water river begins to flow from the Heart of Christ in the Heart of God, our Father, into our heart. The eyes of our heart are enlightened, filled with the true light of Christ, and made sound to spiritually perceive; flowing with the blood of the Lamb of God, grace, water, fire, and glory. We receive the Spirit of Counsel to be led by Spirit.

Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven in our will as the Spirit of Might comes into our personal will. Give us this day our daily Bread: hidden manna comes into our solar plexus: the Son, the Word made flesh, the Bread of Life is given as we eat of the Word, food indeed. The Spirit of Christ unites with our innermost spirit man. The Son of Righteousness rises with healing in his wings.

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. In the forgiveness of God, our relationships go from unholy to holy and become sacred relationships with Christ as the Head. We begin to conceive from knowing the Love of Christ to be filled with all the fullness of God. The Spirit of the Knowledge of God and His glory is given.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Bitter roots are removed as we move from fear to Love. The Spirit of the fear of the Lord removes fear of man; no longer in bondage to elemental spirits, philosophy, empty deceit or human tradition. We come to fullness of Life in Christ in whom all the Godhead dwells bodily. We come into the one Body of Christ to flow with the one Spirit of God as we yoke with Jesus, learn from Him and find rest for our soul. Light comes into darkness as we root and ground in the holy root of Jesus and the Vine grows all the way to heaven, making you a new heaven and a new earth where righteousness dwells, with Christ in your spirit and soul and body.

The 7 spirits from the throne infuse your spirit and soul and body with the seven eyes full of Light so your whole body is full of Light, seven torches of Fire to remove all seven plagues/sins, and seven horns of Oil to fill your spirit and soul and body with the oil of Holy Spirit so “the Bride makes herself ready” within and is clothed with the fire light of Christ Spirit: bright white and pure (Revelation 19:7).

For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory, now and forever and ever. Amen. Glory divine returns to our body temple; reverential awe, wonder, splendor, bright Light, treasury of heaven; the pure, refined gold Lampstand of Christ within, eternally lit with the holy Fire of God to make a Way, light our path of Truth and shine in the darkness until all is Christ Life!

Father to the Fatherless

Abba Father, I thank you today for your perfect Fathering in which we can trust, take refuge and rest. Thank you for drawing your children back to you who have been deceived, kept asleep, are rebellious out of ignorance or because of life circumstances that they did not understand.

See that you do not despise one of these lost ones; for I tell you that in heaven their angels always behold the face of my Father who is in heaven…He leaves the ninety-nine in search of the one that went astray…It is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of the lost should perish”  ~Jesus the Christ

“He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers”  Malachi 4:6

Remember then from what you have fallen, repent [change your mind] and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove the lampstand from you, unless you repent [have a change of heart, come to your spiritual senses]…To those who conquer I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God” Revelation 2:2-7

Return to the Father through the open Door of Jesus and he will return to you. Draw close to the Father and he will draw close to you. God is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18).

But when he came to himself he said, ‘I will arise and go to my Father, and I will say to Him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you…’ And He arose and came to his Father. But while he was yet at a distance, his Father saw him and had compassion and ran and embraced him and kissed him…He received him safe and sound…Son you are always with Me, and all that is Mine is yours. Make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is now alive; he was lost and now he is found” Luke 15:11-32

Fear not little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” Luke 12:32

Father of the fatherless and protector of widows, is God in his holy habitation. God gives the desolate a home to dwell in; he leads out the prisoners to prosperity; but the rebellious dwell in a parched land…Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation…He gives power and strength to his people” Psalm 68

Thank you Abba Father for loving us even before we could love you, others or ourselves. We come back to our First Love today and every day and receive all the good endowments and every perfect gift coming down from the Father of Glory. We open to receive the King of Glory with clean hands and pure heart, washed in the blood of the Lamb of God. “Lift up your heads, O gates! and be lifted up, O ancient doors! that the King of glory may come in…the LORD, strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle! The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory!” Psalm 24:3-10

So we know and believe the love God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him” 1 John 4:16

Be a New City

The new temple of God is our body filled with the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 3:16; 6:19); the new cities of God are those made righteous through the blood to be filled with God’s presence; in a new state of being in Christ as new nation: abiding in Christ and Christ in you; His glory within you and His fire around you.

“Her salvation is as a burning torch…You shall be called by a new name…no more desolate or forsaken…go through the gates*…They shall be called The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD; and you shall be called Sought Out, a city not forsaken” Isaiah 62:1-12

[*into Christ and the King of glory comes in your opened gates “Jesus is The Door,” the old of Adam goes out, never to come back; behold, the new comes: Christ in you]

Give thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of Light of Christ. He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:13).

Those who CONQUER will have the one pillar of the temple, Christ Jesus, set in them, the Vine connecting heaven and earth within; a new place where the “new heaven and new earth” of Christ’s Kingdom abides in you as we live in the world but not OF it. Never shall He go out of you and He writes on you the name of His God, and the name of the city of His God: the new city that comes down from God out of heaven and His new name: Christ in you, a new name (Revelation 2:17; 3:12-13).

God does for us what we could NEVER do for ourselves.

Jesus was sent by our Father, died, buried, resurrected, ascended and glorified to be perfectly one with our God, making Him Lord of lords and King of kings, and we who receive and carry Christ, carry His glory on earth, become as He is in the world: light of the world, first fruit kind (James 1:18), first born (Romans 8:29) kings, priests, sons, brides; as His glory fills our body temple (Romans 8:30); the mind of Christ in our heart: what we think in our heart we become; what we behold we become: we behold his glory and are changed from glory to glory IN CHRIST (2 Cor 3:18), in His presence which is all-pervading (Psalm 139:7-12) all powerful, all knowing, and everywhere present.

“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light” Ephesians 5:14; Romans 13:11-14

“The glory which thou has given me I have given to them” John 17:22

We become present in His Presence in the present; the present of all presents! the free gift of grace and glory. The Glorious Majesty becomes manifest in us as we receive the Love of Christ to be filled with ALL the fullness of God to work in and through us superabundantly greater than we could ever ask or think. We become the Good News carriers (Acts 10:34-48). We carry the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ (2 Cor 4:4b).

We do not follow cleverly devised myths as we KNOW the POWER and coming of Our Lord Jesus THE Christ, and eyewitnesses of HIS MAJESTY…we hear His voice, for we have been with Him on His holy mountain. And we have the PROPHETIC WORDS OF JESUS made more sure. We pay attention to THE WORD OF GOD; it is life and Spirit, a SWORD of the Spirit that cuts to divisions and exposes the intention and thoughts of the heart. The Word is made flesh in us, The Word abiding in us, Christ abiding in us, as a LAMP shining in dark places UNTIL the Day of Christ dawns in us and the Morning Star rises in our hearts (2 Peter 1:16-19; Hebrews 4:12-13; 2 Cor 4:6-18). The Son of Righteousness rises in us with healing in its wings and we go forth leaping with joy like newborn calves; ashes of the enemy under your feet (Malachi 4:2-3).

“According to His Promises we wait with eager expectation and inspired anticipation for new heavens and a new earth in which RIGHTEOUSNESS dwells” 2 Peter 3:13

“RECEIVE the abundance of grace AND the free gift of RIGHTEOUSNESS to REIGN IN LIFE through the ONE MAN Jesus Christ” Romans 5:17

“YIELD YOURSELF to God as people who have been brought FROM DEATH TO LIFE, and your body to God as instruments of righteousness” Romans 6:18

“You are NOT IN THE FLESH, you are in the Spirit, IF IN FACT the Spirit of God dwells in you” Romans 8:9

“Besides this you know what hour it is, how it is FULL TIME NOW to wake from sleep…the day is at hand…put on the armor of light…take off the flesh and put on the Lord Jesus Christ” Romans 13:11-14

NOW is the time [there is NO TIME IN THE SPIRIT]; NOW is the DAY of salvation [there is no space or distance in the Spirit; the Cross is NOW; the End is from the Beginning; the Eternal Day of Christ is NOW, the DAY you come into the Knowledge beyond knowledge of God and His glory: the actual experience to know and be known].

“Do not ignore this ONE fact, beloved, that WITH THE LORD one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as ONE DAY” 2 Peter 3:8

“Come and yoke with the Lord” Matthew 11:28-29

“The Spirit showed me the holy city coming down out of heaven from God, having the glory of God…And 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 an external light source for the glory of God is our internal light, and its internal lamp is the Lamb” Revelation 21:10-23

“The eye is the lamp of the body…if your eye is sound and full of light, your WHOLE body is full of light” Luke 11:33-36

“Arise; shine, for your light has come and His glory has risen upon you…the glory shall come to you…to beautify the place of my sanctuary and I will make the place of my feet glorious…they shall call you the City of the LORD” Isaiah 60:1-14

The new city is the bride who is yoked, joined, spiritually married with Christ. She carries Christ wherever she goes; she carries His glory, carries His presence to change atmospheres, bringing a NHONE to all who will receive the righteousness of God in Christ as they let the past PASS AWAY: move from the old city to a new city of God: Christ in you.

Yield your body to Christ to allow Holy Spirit to move you. No matter what you are going through, *in the midst of trouble, sorrow, loss, grief, opposition, persecution; physical, emotional, mental or spiritual illness; torment, despair of life, disappointment in others, disillusionment in the world, discouragement, dismay, distress, overwhelm, exhaustion, being beaten down, spiritually attacked, depressed, oppressed, worried, or fearful; FEAR NOT; turn to Jesus; repent, change your mind, come into your right mind, come to your spiritual senses, take the Mind of Christ and return to God our Father and receive the Holy Spirit and fire to make your body living stones, an altar where you are totally altered into the likeness of Christ, the image of God; a pillar of fire filled with clouds of glory; rooted and grounded in Christ Jesus, the holy root, making your branches holy; filled with God’s Holy Spirit, your spirit made perfect, and as you allow your soul to be sanctified in Christ, your mind, heart and will are wholly sanctified, and your body can be filled with the Light of Christ with no spots of darkness (*Zephaniah 3:15-17)

How do you see yourself now? through physical eyes or through the spiritual eyes of Christ in God? Behold the glory of Christ and be changed into His likeness to carry His glory light, fire and Spirit River that flows from God’s Fountain of Living Waters.

“Examine who your “gods” are; they are no gods. My people have exchanged their glory for that which does not profit. Be appalled, O heavens, at this, be shocked, be utterly desolate, says the LORD, for my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, BROKEN cisterns, that can hold no water…broken the crown of your head. Have you not brought this upon yourself by forsaking the LORD your God…How can you say, ‘I am not defiled, I have not gone after Ba’als? Look at your way in the valley; know what you have done…lust…shame…turned your back to God…you have rebelled against me…my people have forgotten me days without number…Yet in spite of all these things you say, ‘I am innocent…I have not sinned.’ How lightly you gad about, changing your way!…the LORD rejects those whom you trust” Jeremiah 2:11-37

turn, repent, return to God and receive the Holy Spirit and fire River

“Convince some who doubt; save some, by snatching them out of the fire; on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Now to Him who is able to keep you from falling short of the glory and to present you without blemish before the presence of His glory with rejoicing, to the only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord of lords, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time, and NOW and for ever. Amen.” Jude 1:22-25

Enter the new city by the Door of Jesus who washes us in His Blood to wear His white garment of righteousness, eat of the tree of life and drink of the Living Water: the River of water of life coming down from the Throne of God through those who have yielded their living body as their spiritual worship to enter the glory, and the glory enters and fills their body temple on earth as it is in heaven to flow to the ends of the earth.

“You shall receive Power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses to the end of the earth” Acts 1:8

“God gives His righteousness to the the royal sons [born again of water and Spirit]…May He be like rain…like showers that water the earth…righteousness flourish, and peace abound…May He have dominion from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth…redeem our lives; and precious is the blood in our sight…fruit blossoms forth…blessed is the Lord our God who alone does wondrous things. Blessed be His glorious name for ever; may His glory fill the whole earth! Amen and Amen!” Psalm 72:1-19

And in that Day the mountains will drip sweet wine and the hills will flow with milk, and all the stream beds shall flow with water; and a fountain shall come forth from the Lord and water the valleys…the Lord of lords will dwell in those who come out of tribulation, conquering by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony of the ascended, glorified Christ rising in those who die with Christ to be made alive with Him to be seated with Him in heavenly places and reign with Him on earth as it is in heaven (Joel 3:18; Revelation 7:14; 11:15 12:11; 14:4; 19:7-16; 21:1-27; 22:1-17).

“Blessed are those who trust in the Lord. They are like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when the fire comes, for its leaves remain green (healing leaves) and is not anxious for it does not cease to bear fruit [Christ, the tree of life, is food indeed; the River of Spirit is drink indeed]” Jeremiah 17:7-8

“Whoever drinks of the water I give will never thirst; the water I give becomes a spring of water welling up to eternal new life” John 3:14

“Come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, ‘out of their heart shall flow rivers of living water,’ the glory of God and His perfect, holy Spirit”  ~Jesus the Christ of God

“For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body — and all were made to drink of one Spirit” 1 Corinthians 12:13

Christ flows from our Father in heaven, in and through all who believe and take the River of Spirit by faith through grace, walk by faith not by sight, as we let God bring what does not exist into existence in and through us.

“God will baptize you with Holy Spirit and fire”

“The old heaven and earth are burned up with fire”

“God is a consuming fire”

The old sea passes away as ‘the waters of the sea become fresh; so everything will live where the river goes” Ezekiel 47:9

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right earthly…Come behold the works of the LORD…be still and KNOW that I am God…The LORD of hosts is with us; our refuge” Psalm 46:4-11

“I see a new heaven and a new earth; for the old pass away and the old sea is no more” Revelation 21:1

“The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come…take the water of life without price’ ”

Behold, the dwelling place of God is with us. He will dwell with us, and we shall be His people, and God Himself will be with us…for the former things have passed away…Behold, I make ALL things new…It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the fountain of water of life without payment. Those who CONQUER have this heritage” Revelation 21:3-8

“We are MORE than conquerors through Him who LOVES US” Romans 8:37

“KNOW the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with ALL the fulness of God” Ephesians 3:19

“Lead a life worthy of God who calls you into his own kingdom and glory” 1 Thess 2:12

His divine power has granted to us 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 and become partakers of the divine nature” 2 Peter 1:3-4

God flows Himself into us as His Spirit like a river to reveal all of Christ to his redeemed so we can live as a new city of God on earth as it is in heaven making us His Bride united with The Lamb, carrying His Spirit.

“His dominion is from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth” Zechariah 9:10b

“Thy righteousness is like the mountains of God…How precious is Your steadfast love, O God! We take refuge in the shadow of Thy wings. We feast on the abundance of Your house, and You give us drink from the river of Your delights. For with Thee is the fountain of life; in Thy light do we see light” Psalm 36:6-9

“Delight in the LORD and he gives you the desires of your heart”

I desire ALL of Christ in ALL of me. We yield to Your Way, Your Truth and Your Life, YahWay, to be a new city filled with Christ.

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill” ~Jesus The Christ

“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness covers the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the LORD will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you…then you shall see and be radiant, your heart shall thrill and rejoice” Isaiah 60:1-2, 5

Maturity in Christ

Abide in Me, and I in you”  ~Jesus the Christ, the Messiah

(Fill This Temple: written by Randolph Barnwell (2004); Produced by Riaan Pretorius; Lead Vocals by Moira Saker, Bruce Eaves and Julienne Bartleson)

“When we sing “Fill This Temple”, our cry is not for God to fill a building made with human hands, but to fill us, His sons with the fullness of nature and character. The ‘temple’ referred to in this song is not a reference to the physical structure or building in which we gather, but a reference to us, the living stones, sons of God, who like Christ was, are exact representations of His glory – His character, nature and essence. The temple can be personal (1 Cor. 3:16) or corporate (i.e. local church or city church) (2 Cor. 6:16). Scriptural Foundation for this Song: Heb. 12:22,23 “But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect” 1 Pet 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” Isaiah 60:1-3 “Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. “For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the Lord will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, And kings to the brightness of Your rising.” Haggai 2:9 ‘The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘and in this place I will give peace,’ declares the Lord of hosts.” 2 Chron. 7:1-3 “Now when Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the Lord filled the house. The priests could not enter into the house of the Lord because the glory of the Lord filled the Lord’s house. All the sons of Israel, seeing the fire come down and the glory of the Lord upon the house, bowed down on the pavement with their faces to the ground, and they worshiped and gave praise to the Lord, saying, ‘Truly He is good, truly His lovingkindness is everlasting.’ ” 1 Cor. 3:16 “Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you”. 2 Cor. 6:16b “For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” The audio, lyrics and chords of this song may be freely downloaded from my website: http://www.randolphbarnwell.com.

Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? For God’s temple is holy, and that temple YOU ARE” 1 Cor 3:16-17

He who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with him…Do you not know that your BODY is a temple of the Holy Spirit WITHIN you, which you have FROM GOD? So glorify God IN YOUR BODY” 1 Cor 6:17-20

Present your BODIES as a LIVING sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your SPIRITUAL worship. Do not be conformed to the world but be TRANSFORMED by the renewal of Christ’s Mind in you, that you may PROVE what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect” Romans 12:1-2

In Christ, “those who were not my people I will call “my people,’ and her who was not beloved I will call ‘my beloved.’ And they will be called ‘sons of the living God.’ ” Romans 9:25

NEITHER worship the Father on this mountain or in Jerusalem. You worship what you DO NOT KNOW; in Christ we worship what we KNOW [knowledge of God as Spirit and knowledge of His glory: the Way the Truth and the Life: the Light, the Love and the Spirit of God: ascended, glorified Christ]…the hour is coming AND NOW IS, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. GOD IS SPIRIT, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth”  ~Jesus the Christ, the Holy One

NOW the Lord is Spirit…and we all, with unveiled face [veil removed by Christ], beholding the glory of the Lord, are CHANGED into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this COMES FROM the Lord who is the SPIRIT” 2 Cor 3:12-18

For it is THE GOD who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ who has shone in OUR HEARTS to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of CHRIST. We have this TREASURE in our earthen vessels to show the transcendent POWER belongs to God…the life of Jesus may also be MANIFESTED in our mortal flesh…raises us…brings us into His presence [glory]…as grace extends to more and more people it increases our thanksgiving to the glory of God” 2 Cor 4:4-15

Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew he cannot see the kingdom of God…Truly, truly I say to you, unless one is born of water AND the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born the flesh is flesh, and that which is born OF THE SPIRIT is spirit” Jesus, the Living One

But you are NOT IN THE FLESH, you are IN THE SPIRIT, if IN FACT the Spirit of God DWELLS IN YOU…he will give life to your mortal bodies ALSO through his Spirit who DWELLS IN YOU…all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God” Romans 8:9-17

Make the Word of God FULLY known, the mystery hidden for ages and generations, BUT NOW made manifest…God makes known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the GLORY of this mystery, which is CHRIST IN YOU…present every man MATURE IN CHRIST” Colossians 1:25-29

Now to Him who IS ABLE to keep you from falling [short of the glory] and to present you without blemish 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 for ever. Amen” Jude 1:24-25

For in him the WHOLE FULLNESS of the Godhead dwells bodily, and you have come to FULLNESS OF LIFE IN HIM, who is the Head” Colossians 2:9-10

Stand MATURE and FULLY ASSURED in ALL the will of God” Colossians 4:12b

Walk in the Spirit, by faith through his glorious riches of grace lavished upon us; set your mind on the things of the Spirit; we are MORE than conquerors through God who loves us, raised up with Christ, and made to sit with God our Father in heavenly places IN Christ Jesus.

Today when you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts…Let us then strive to enter His rest, that we no longer fall…let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace” Hebrews 4:1-16

Come to Me and I will give you rest. Yoke to Me; unite with Me; learn from Me for I am gentle and humble-hearted and you will find rest. I am ease and light. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life of God; the Kingdom of God: righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit; the Power of God as the Holy Spirit; and the Glory of God as Christ in you as Christ is in the Father”  ~Jesus, the Righteous One of God

In that day you will know that I am in my Father and you in me and I in you”  ~Jesus the Beloved of God

NOW is the time; today is always THE DAY until you turn, repent, return to our God and Father through the finished work of the Cross of Christ, and the Holy Spirit is sent to live with and in you forever.

I consecrate Myself that they may be consecrated in truth…that they may all be one…that they may BE IN US…The glory which Thou hast given Me I have given to them…I in them and Thou in Me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world will know that You sent Me and LOVE THEM…be with Me where I am, to BEHOLD MY GLORY…Your Love in them and I IN THEM” John 17:19-23

Unceasing

Pray the Word in the Spirit at all times.

“It is the Spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; the words I have spoken to you are spirit and life”  ~Jesus the Christ, the Messiah

“Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication” Ephesians 6:17-18

“In the world there are scoffers, following their own ungodly passions. It is these who set up divisions, 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” Jude 1:18

Whether you are feeling on top of the world or it is a very difficult day, remember God and give thanks unceasingly.

“The LORD is near to the brokenhearted, and saves the crushed in spirit” Psalm 34:18

Free Choice

Choose to focus on Christ.

If you are not free to focus on Christ,

ask Jesus to free you to make the best choice,

the third option,

no longer taking opposing positions of the world;

no longer of the mixed good and evil of the world.

“See the Goodness of God in the land of the living” Psalm 27:13

Repent, turn and return to God through the open door of Christ,

opened by the finished work of the Cross of Jesus;

the Blood of the Lamb of God was shed for all humans

but we have to take the free Gift and apply it to our life;

give all sin and falling short of the glory to Jesus

and receive the righteousness of God in Christ, the glory, the light of the presence of God.

Ask and receive Jesus to live, move and have His being in you;

seek and find the Kingdom of God and his Righteousness as Christ comes to abide in you,

knocks on the door of your heart and comes in to eat together of the tree of Life.

Let our Father attach you to the Vine of Christ as a branch by the Holy Spirit

and you become an open heaven for angels to ascend and descend with treasures of heaven, used on earth to bring glory to God our Father.

In His Presence

In the Presence of God, here, now, in the present,

the Gift of God,

through praise and spiritual worship of our King of kings, the King of Glory,

we are made one in the glory — cells are changed — organs are changed — body and soul and spirit transformed by the Holy Spirit to live IN the Spirit — one with Christ — the perfect has come, the imperfect passes away — the old heavens and old earth pass away

and we begin to live a new heaven and new earth where only The Word remains — life and Spirit — where righteousness dwells.

“It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” — righteousness in us — NHONE in those who believe Jesus, agree with God, by FAITH receive all of Christ into all of you from the Father of Glory now and forever — staying awake, aware, alive, attentive in the present Presence with Christ Jesus our ALL in all.

The cares of the world try to steal the Word from your heart; don’t let them. Cry out to God, bring all your tortured grief, loss, sorrow, betrayal, injustice, persecution, despair, disillusionment to Jesus. “Cast all your cares upon Jesus for He cares about you” “Come to Me and I will give you rest; YOKE TO ME and learn from Me and you will FIND REST” “Come and drink of Me and rivers of living water will flow from you  [Christ in you will begin to flow; the deadness begins to turn into new life in Christ; the unbearable is only bearable with Christ]. The Spirit and Bride say, “Come.”…TAKE the water of life without price” Take Grace and come to His Glory. God will dry all your tears and speak TRUTH and LIFE to you. Christ is the ONLY WAY to the Father of Glory so the King of Glory can come into you.

Every day practice the presence, some days it seems impossible, but in the Word you are reminded “everything is possible WITH God.” Keep remembering the TRUTH of God until you KNOW the present Presence; every night give all the pain and sorrow to God again in your woundedness, hurt and brokenness and every morning everything is made new when we choose to be present in the Presence of God. We strive only to enter His Rest. The thief wants the trials he brings to break you, steal from you, kill you or destroy you; but Jesus comes into our suffering when we invite Him, bringing life and life more abundantly than we could ever ask or think. TRUST GOD, not what you see; walk by faith not sight, until you see the glory and goodness of God in the land of the living.

Count it all joy when you go through various trials for the full effect is to be made perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. Ask God for His Wisdom from above and He gives generously to you. But ask in faith, with no doubting or wavering…a double-minded man will not receive anything from the Lord (James 1:2-8). Become single-minded in Christ; come to your right mind and spiritual senses opened; eyes fixed on Jesus; ears only listening to the Voice of the True Shepherd; totally dependent on God our Father. Enter His Presence in praise, in the storm.

“For in Him the whole fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily, and you have come to fullness of life in Him, who is the Head of all rule and authority” Colossians 2:9

“The mystery hidden for ages and generations but NOW made MANIFEST to his saints. To them God chose to MAKE KNOWN how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the GLORY of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” Colossians 1:26-27

Take it to heart and come alive with Christ Spirit.

“And you, who were dead in trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God MADE ALIVE together WITH HIM” Colossians 2:13

“They CAME TO LIFE, and reigned with Christ a thousand years…this is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he who shares in the first resurrection.” Revelation 20:4, 6

“Do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day” 2 Peter 3:8

“NOW to him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you without blemish 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 for ever. Amen.” Jude 1:24

Have you seen His glory? It transforms us into the likeness of Christ from glory to glory.

“But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loves us, even when we were dead through our trespasses, MADE US ALIVE TOGETHER WITH CHRIST (by GRACE we have been saved), and RAISED US UP WITH HIM, and made us sit with him in the heavenly places WITH CHRIST” Ephesians 2:4-6

In Christ is perfection, completion, nothing lacking, righteousness, shalom, joy in the Holy Spirit, and holiness; Christ in you is the perfect coming into you so the imperfect has to pass away as The Word is made flesh in you. Believe, receive, and begin to live according to The Word by the Spirit of God.

“Therefore, if any one is IN CHRIST, he is a new creation; the OLD HAS PASSED AWAY, behold the NEW HAS COME. All this is FROM GOD, who through Christ reconciled us TO HIMSELF” 2 Cor 5:16-18

“You are already made clean by THE WORD which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me and I in you” John 15:3-4

I pray for all those mourning, grieving, suffering from loss of their earthly beloved; have lost all that is precious to them in the world, to trust God with your sorrow, pain, attacks of the enemy, injustice, loss, and the locust who come to devour. Come Holy Spirit. God is ABLE.

LORD

We now know that the Lord of lords is Jesus crucified, buried, resurrected, ascended; the glorified Christ; the King of kings; The Word made flesh, Trustworthy and True; The Everlasting Father; The Wonderful Counselor; The Almighty God; The Prince of Peace; The Light, Love and Spirit of God; The Joy of the LORD; Faithful and True; the Way, the Truth and the Life of God. Surrender all and receive all of Christ to spiritually experience beyond knowledge of this world.

What does LORD as acronym suggest or reflect to you? Here are some I came up with:

  • living out redemption delivered
  • life of real devotion
  • life of real delight
  • life of radical devotion
  • living out radical deliverance
  • light of radical deliverance
  • love of redeemer delivered
  • light of remembered deliverance
  • love of remembered delight
  • life of riches delivered
  • life of renewal delivered
  • life of regeneration delivered
  • life of real dependence [on God our Father]
  • life of radical dependence
  • life of revealed deity
  • light of revealed divinity
  • love of revealed deity
  • life of revealed divine
  • life of repented devotion
  • life of released dedication
  • life of revival delivered
  • life of reformation delivered
  • life of rejuvenation delivered
  • life of restoration delivered
  • life of rest delivered
  • light of redeemer delivered
  • light of ruach delivered
  • light of real divinity

Repent, turn, return to your First Love and let Him be Lamb of God within, our lamp within, Christ within; Lion of the tribe of Judah roaring over you, silencing all other voices; Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End; The New Thing spoken by Isaiah, the ever-renewing Holy One; Name above all names; Lord, Savior; Healer, Deliverer, Redeemer; King of Glory, the Light greater than any created light; Father of Glory, Father of lights; Creator of heaven and earth; Source of all needs; Husband, Bridegroom; Comforter, Provider, Protector, Teacher, Guide, Holy One Anointing; Gardener, Pruner; Author and Finisher of Faith; Fulfilled Hope; Manifested Promises of God; Our Delight, the Lover of our soul; Made our Righteousness and Sanctification, Wisdom and Power, Counsel and Might, Revelation of God’s Goodness and Glory, our Redemption and Forgiveness, our Understanding and Knowledge of God, our Awe and Miraculous Wonder; the Presence of God, the Majestic Glory, Bringer of God’s Glory to earth as it is in heaven; the Rock of Ages, the Highest Mountain above all mountains; Perfect Peace, Perfect Love, Perfect Health and Harmony, Fullness of Joy, Unfailing Love, Everlasting Arms of Love; Holy Spirit and Holy Fire, River of Water of Life from the Throne, Tree of Life and everything that is Good, True, Pure, Lovely, Honorable, Praise-Worthy, Excellent, Glorious, Gracious, Faithful, Just, Righteous, Holy, Perfect, and Complete. What have I missed?

He is my Everything and I could not go on one moment longer without His Presence revealed; His everlasting Love made palpable; His Light exposing all lies, dissolving darkness, and revealing Christ; His Spirit quickening to life what has died; bringing to nought that which is and calling forth that which does not yet exist (Romans 4:17-25). All glory to God our Father and his Lamb forever.
