Is There a Grace Period?

In the natural, grace periods are extended; how much MORE is God our Father extending grace upon grace to every person on earth, every tribe, people group, nation and tongue; calling every person to come to Jesus.

Come to Me all who labor, weary, tired, heavy-laden with burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble-hearted, and I will give you rest for your souls [mind, heart]” Jesus in Matthew 11:28-29

Jesus says, “You must be born again to SEE the kingdom; you must be born anew from Above by Water and Spirit to ENTER the kingdom” John 3:3-21

“This one and that one were born in her [the Bride: Christ’s one Body and one Spirit]; for the Most High Himself established her. The Lord records as He registers the peoples, ‘This one is born [anew in Christ and Christ in you]…ALL my springs are in you” Psalm 87:5-7

“For the Lamb in the midst of the Throne is our Shepherd, and He guides us to springs of living water; and God wipes the tears from our eyes [to SEE the glory of the Lord and be changed into Christ likeness from glory to glory; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit]” Revelation 7:17; 2 Cor 3:12-18

selah: pause and be present to God’s presence: the glory, the goodness, the faithfulness, truth, righteousness; the kingdom of the Son, the light, the dominion of God our Father, the authority and power of Christ Jesus, and the gifts of the Spirit sent down from the Father of lights, to make you a kind of first-fruits creature; the two become one new creature, of the new creation, of the new Covenant between the Father and His Lamb (James 1:17-18; 2 Cor 5:16-18; Revelation 21:5)

“I have made a new Covenant with My Chosen One [Christ Jesus]…Your Throne for ALL generations…Who among the heavenly beings is like the Lord?…The heavens are Thine, the earth also is Thine; the world and ALL that is in it, Thou hast founded…Righteousness and Justice are the foundation of Christ’s Throne; steadfast Love and Faithfulness go before Thee. Blessed are the people who walk in the Light of Thy Countenance, who exult in Thy Name above every name in heaven and on earth, all the day, and extol Thy Righteousness. For Thou art the glory of our strength; by Thy favor our horn is exalted. For our Shield belongs to the Lord our King…My Covenant with Jesus stands firm forever…I will not remove Him from my steadfast Love [and in Christ and Christ in you, you are never moved from God our Father’s steadfast Love]…Who can deliver your soul from the power of Sheol?…Jesus is scorned, insulted, taunted, mocked…But blessed be the Lord for ever! Amen and Amen.” Psalm 89:1-52

“Those [who reject Christ] are of one mind and give over their power to the beast; they make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those WITH HIM are called and chosen and faithful” Revelation 17:13-14

“To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to him who has Christ, more will be given and you will have abundance; but from those who have not Christ, even what they have will be taken away. This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see…and they do not understand…’This people’s hearts have grown dull and hard, and their ears closed to hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should perceive with their eyes and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and TURN for Me to heal them.’ Truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see, and do not see it, and to hear what you hear, and do not hear it” Matthew 13:11-17

My sheep hear My Voice and they will not follow another” Jesus the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God

The kingdom of heaven is like a marriage feast, ALL are invited to come, but they make light of it, make excuses, decide to wait, and make other things more important in their life, ignore, waver, doubt, fear, arrogantly reject, deny; they do not come. God says, “Behold, I have made ready My Dinner, and everything is READY; come to the marriage feast.” When the King comes in, He sees a man without the wedding garment and says, “Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into the outer darkness; there people will weep and gnash their teeth.” For many are called, but few choose to just come to the marriage of the Lamb (Matthew 22:1-14)

When is the Grace Period up? no one knows but the Father.

The kingdom of heaven is like ten maidens who take the lamp (the Lamb of God) to meet the Bridegroom King of Glory. Five are foolish and have no oil of the Holy Spirit with them. As the Bridegroom was delayed, they fell asleep. But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Behold, the Bridegroom! Come out to meet Him! Those without the Holy Spirit oil and fire ask the wise maidens for their oil but the wise replied, “Jesus asked us to come buy from Him gold refined by fire, white wedding garments, and eyes to see the need for Holy Spirit oil and fire. “You must buy for yourself.” And while they went to buy, the Bridegroom came, and those who were READY went in with Him to the marriage feast; and the DOOR WAS SHUT. Afterwards the other maidens came also, saying, “Lord, Lord, open to us.’ But He replied, ‘Truly, I say to you, I DO NOT KNOW YOU.’ Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour that the GRACE PERIOD is gone and the OPEN DOOR to resurrected, ascended, glorified Christ Jesus is CLOSED (Matthew 25:1-13).

Come out of her [dwelling place of demons, haunt of foul spirits, mixed wine, sexual sin, impure passion, wealth made by unrighteousness], my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues…that come in a single day…in one hour Thy judgment comes…in one hour the unrighteous’ wealth is laid waste…all nations were deceived by sorcery…in the harlot is found the blood of all those slain on the earth …Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for His Judgments are True and Just; He has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication, and God avenges on her the blood she shed…Amen. Hallelujah! Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, small and great…Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give Him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and the Bride has made herself ready” Revelation 18:4

CONQUER (Revelation 2-3, 21-22), overcome this world’s ways and beliefs, by coming to God our Father, through Jesus, by the Holy Spirit.

“The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come…take the Water of Life without price‘ ” Revelation 22:17

“Behold, I make all things new” Revelation 21:5

Enthroned

Every human being on earth has either enthroned Christ Jesus over their soul or satan over their soul. If you enthrone Christ over your mind, heart and will, you are a part of God; if you enthrone satan over your mind, heart and will, you are a part of the dog (Revelation 22:15), backwards, upside down, of this world, conformed to this world as the god of this world has blinded your mind (2 Cor 4:4), heart uncircumcised by Jesus (Colossians 2:11-15), will yoked to the father of lies; a goat nation (Matthew 25:31-34).

But if you come to Christ and enthrone Christ over your mind, heart and will to do the Will of God our Father on earth as it is in heaven, you are a sheep nation, upright, right side up, righteous, a kingdom citizen of heaven on earth, an ambassador from heaven to earth with diplomatic immunity, representing heaven on earth under the True King (not queen or pope), the Bridegroom King of Glory and His Father of Glory, who sends The Son to those who are ready for spiritual marriage with the King of Glory, saying “I do” to Christ and turning away from this world to live, move and have your being in the Father’s House all the days of your life, in your temporary tent now, and is to come in your permanent mansion of glory!

O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His Judgments and how inscrutable His Ways!” Romans 11:33

“The Free Gift following many trespasses brings justification. If because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who RECEIVE the abundance of grace AND the free gift of righteousness REIGN in life through the one man Jesus Christ…As sin reigns in death, grace reigns through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” Romans 5:16-17,21

“Know that all who are baptized INTO Christ Jesus are baptized into His death [the last Adam’s death]. Buried WITH HIM by baptism into death [of our old self], so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, WE TOO might walk in newness of life…We know that our old self [like fallen Adam] WAS CRUCIFIED WITH JESUS so that our old sinful body might be destroyed, and no longer be enslaved to sin. For he who has died IS FREE from sin. If we have died with Christ, we also LIVE WITH HIM…death has NO DOMINION over Him…So you must CONSIDER YOURSELVES dead to sin and alive to God IN CHRIST JESUS” Romans 6:3-11

“Conform to the image of God’s Son…first born among many brethren…called, justified, glorified…God gave us ALL things with Christ who intercedes for us…in ALL things we are more than conquerors through Christ who loves us” Romans 8:29-37

“Know what hour it is, how it is FULL TIME now for you to wake from sleep…the night is FAR GONE, the DAY is at hand…put on the armor of light…put on the Lord Jesus Christ” Romans 13:11-14

“Do not let your GOOD be spoken of as evil…The kingdom of God is righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” Romans 14:16-17

“Be wise as to what is GOOD and guileless as to what is evil; then the God of Peace will soon crush satan under your feet…NOW to him who is ABLE to strengthen you…reveal the mystery to you…now disclosed…and made known to all the nations, according to the command of the Eternal God, to bring about the obedience of the faith — to the only wise God, be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen” Romans 16:19-27

God has revealed to us through the Spirit…Now we have received not the spirit of this world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might understand the GIFTS bestowed on us by God…take the Mind of Christ” 1 Cor 2:10-16

No longer be conformed to this world, but formed by Christ in you; transformed by the renewal of Christ’s Mind in you (Romans 12:2; 8:29-37).

“God has made Christ the source of your life, whom God made our wisdom, our righteousness and sanctification and redemption” 1 Cor 1:30

“For our sake, God made Jesus to be sin who knew no sin, so that IN HIM we become the righteousness of God” 2 Cor 5:20-21

Unite to the Lord…one Spirit with Him…your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God” 1 Cor 6:17-20

“Baptized into one Body…all are made to drink of one Spirit…Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it…earnestly desire the higher spiritual gifts” 1 Cor 12:12-31

“The first Adam became a living being; the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit…bear the image of the Man of Heaven” 1 Cor 15:49

Die to the fallen first Adam; resurrect with Jesus: the two become one; a new creature of the new creation, of the new covenant, in Christ and Christ in you.

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

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but CHRIST who lives IN ME; and the life I NOW LIVE in the flesh I live by FAITH in the Son of God who loves me and gave Himself for me” Galatians 2:20

“Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. And we all with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being 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

“IN CHRIST JESUS you are all sons of God through faith…baptized into Christ…put on Christ…heirs to the Promises of God our Father” Galatians 3:23-29

Abide in Me, and I in you…for apart from Christ you can do NOTHING” John 15:1-27

“Receive the Promise of the Spirit through faith” Galatians 3:14b

“If you keep My Word of patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial which is coming upon the whole world…hold fast to what you have, so no one may seize your crown…conquer…and God will not go out from you…His Name written on you” Revelation 3:10-13

Thanks be to God, who IN CHRIST, always leads us in triumph” 2 Cor 2:14

Guide us in Truth

Spirit of Truth, guide us into all the Truth (John 16:13). Remove the mixed messages and replace with the pure gospel in both your external (buildings; gathering of believers, and seekers so they may find You) and internal (human body where Holy Spirit comes to dwell making a holy temple of God) churches, Lord God Almighty. The true Church is the eternal, one perfect Body and one Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus.

“There is one body and one Spirit…one call, one Lord, one faith, one baptism (Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus giving the power and glory to change and live in the kingdom under the King of Glory; in the world but no longer OF the world), one God and Father who is ABOVE ALL, and through all, and in all…grace given to us according to the measure of Christ’s Gift” (Ephesians 4:4-7). Remove the mixed mindsets and mixed beliefs and plurality of truths based on what people “feel” is the truth. God is greater than our feelings, and our thoughts and feelings need to be transformed in Holy Spirit and fire as well! Replace our worldly mindset, feelings and will with your pure, holy, righteous Spirit, the Mind of Christ, the Compassion and Wisdom of the Heart of Christ, the Will of Christ to do the Will of the Father, so we can enthrone God and His Christ over our spirit and soul and body. Word!

Purify, refine and make your churches “white as snow” (white on the inside; transformed from the inside out; God’s people are of every race, ethnicity, tribe, nation and tongue) in the Blood of the Lamb, the River of Water of Life, and your Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus to burn the dross, and form Christ in your faithful. The time is now; today is the day.

“It is full time now for you to wake up” Romans 13:11

I have been praying for those practicing a form of religion without the power, who live in fear, when God does not give us a spirit of fear but a spirit of Power and Love and a Sound Mind of Christ (2Timothy 1:7). Jesus instructs us to wait until we are endued with God’s Power to have the power to unyoke from the world; being vulnerable to unclean spirits, in bondage to the elemental spirits of the universe (Colossians 2:8-23).

Only Jesus has both the Power (dunamis) and Authority (exousia) to save, deliver, and set you free from the dominion of darkness and transfer you into the Kingdom of the beloved Son (Colossians 1:13). We receive the Holy Spirit, even the Spirit of Truth, to live with us and in us (John 14:16-16:33) when we are born again of both the Water of Life and the Spirit. Jesus says you must be born again to SEE and enter the Kingdom (John 3:3-21) so you can be filled with all the fullness of Christ in Whom all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily, so you can come into the Head of all rule and authority, under the government of Christ that has no end and is ever increasing, under God our Father, the Righteous, Just Judge, the Holy Heavenly Eternal Father of all families in heaven and on earth (Ephesians 3:14), and no longer under the yoke or bondage of the spirit of this world and the father of lies, the god of this world who blinds minds to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the likeness of God.

Jesus was Son of Man and Son of God: his earthly mother was Mary in the line of David; His Father was the Holy Spirit of God our Father who is and is to come our God and Father when we come to Christ Jesus, repent, TURN from the ways of this world and to the Way, the Truth and the Life of God, who makes Christ your source of life, your wisdom, your righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30).

If God could send the Holy Spirit upon and in Mary to conceive Jesus, to save the world from sin, death and the works of the devil, God is fully able to send you the Holy Spirit when you believe. “Be it done unto me according to your Word”

The Word is both the spirit and life of God. Jesus says, “Abide in Me, and I in you”

I say “yes Lord” and “amen” to Jesus’ fulfillment of all the laws and prophets, so in Christ and Christ in you we have all the promises of the Father fulfilled in you.

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick” and heart disease and heart troubles are pandemic. “But a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.” In Christ and Christ in you, is a tree of life. The Holy One anointing of Christ teaches you about everything, and is true, and no lie, and teaches you to abide in Christ, where the tree of life resides. The Vine of Christ connects a new heaven and a new earth where righteousness dwells in Christ and Christ in you. Only Jesus can transform you by giving you His Mind that will renew in you by the Holy Spirit. “Be it done” unto all according to Your Word, Yah Way, The Way.

The Utmost Importance

This is why it is of the utmost importance to ask the Spirit of Truth to guide us into all God’s Truth (John 16:12) and why evil must be exposed with the Light of Christ Jesus (Ephesians 5:6-16):

the enemy of our souls, the thief who always steals, kills and destroys (John 10:10), the adversary, the father of lies, the accuser of the brethren, the dragon, the serpent, the snake, the trickster, the devil, satan, lucifer, the Destroyer, the king of evil, the angel from the bottomless Pit: Abanddon (Hebrew), and Apollyon (Greek) — the Destroyer (Revelation 9:11), 9 — 11 there are no accidents,

for there is a book targeting children (https://www.amazon.com/Childrens-Book-Demons-Aaron-Leighton/dp/1927668662/ref=sr_1_1?crid=35KPRBF0MAL2X&keywords=the+children%27s+book+of+demons&qid=1579289018&s=books&sprefix=the+children%27s+book+of%2Caps%2C197&sr=1-1)

Katrina Luckenbach is the first review on the book, I read on Amazon:

“My 7 year old son got this for his birthday and could t put it down for a week! At first, I was glad that he put down the video games and opened up a book, but now I’m not so sure. Ever since finishing the book he (they?) keeps referring to himself (themselves?) as Sliatiel, Lord of maggots. He’s not the same little boy anymore. He’s…oh god he’s outside the door. Please help me…”

the second review says, “Want to know what makes it worse? It teaches kids the original Greek, Hebrew and Egyptian names of these malicious demons”

the fourth, “This book is witchcraft and demonic. Please do not let your children read it. MATT 12 says When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, but finds none. Then it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when it comes, it finds the house empty, swept, and put in order. Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there, and the last state of that person is worse than the first. So also will it be with this evil generation.”

the fifth review, “Why would you want to expose your children to anything involving the occult, witchcraft and Satanism??? You are setting your children up for failure and unnecessary trouble. Demons are evil and they don’t care about you or your children. They are liars, deceivers. They are there to steal, kill, and destroy. They follow Satan and want you and your children to do that same. Stop exposing your children to this satanic garbage!!!”

(https://churchpop.com/2020/01/13/exorcists-warn-against-childrens-book-teaching-kids-how-to-summon-evil-spirits/)

This book is child abuse, just as much as pushing identity confusion or gender confusion on children, pushing sexual confusion on children, pushing sexual immorality on children, pushing perversion, to desensitize children to perversity, just as sexual slavery and trafficking is pushed on children, just as the current push to desensitize and normalize pedophilia is being pushed on humanity, just as …

Enough is enough.

Put on the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18); the enemy is not people it is evil rulers, authorities of the unseen world, powers in this dark world, and evil spirits in the fallen heavenly realms disguising themselves as angels of light; the god of this world who blinds minds and eyes and ears and hearts to the Truth of God and His Christ; the prince of the air who goes through the airwaves with his lies and propaganda that the unsuspecting media broadcast; using the ignorant and arrogant to program and tele-vise and cause di-Vision, division, devoid of the Spirit of God, worldly people who do not have their minds and hearts in Christ Jesus, and are susceptible and vulnerable to the lies of the enemy, and the hidden, dark agenda being promoted, trying to shame those who are in Christ and Christ in you, on social media and in public to SILENCE the Truth, using those who have consciously or unconsciously joined their mind to the accuser of the brethren.

Christians, take a stand for righteousness. The Word: Christ made flesh, the just, righteous Law Jesus manifested and fulfilled. The Word: the sharp Sword of the Spirit; use it. The law and prophesies were fulfilled in the Lord Jesus Christ:

Listen, all people. Believe the Lord Your God Almighty, and you will be established in the Truth, in Righteousness, The Way, and able to stand firm. Believe Jesus fulfilled all the laws and the prophecies, and you will succeed against evil and prosper in the riches of the glory of Christ Jesus (2 Chronicles 20:20), the likeness of God our Father of Glory, in Christ Jesus our King of kings and Lord of lords, now and forever and ever, Amen. Hallelujah!

All glory to God Almighty and His Lamb; all thanks and honor to the Father of Glory and His King of Glory; all dominion and authority and power to our Great God the King of Glory; all praise and worship and majesty to our Great God the Father of Glory, the Father of lights; Whom sends down every good endowment and every perfect, holy gift to his “lights” on earth who are a kind of “first fruits” creatures, who shine in the midst of a crooked, corrupt, perverse generation (Philippians 2:14-18); shine like bright lights: Jesus says, “I am the light of the world, while I am in the world” and “You are the light of the world when I have returned to My God and Father.”

Arise, proclaim The Word!

Shout to the Lord!

I give all thanks, honor, blessings, praise, worship, dominion, power, authority and glory to God our Father and His Christ; the Lamb of God Who has overcome this world, and the Lion of the tribe of Judah Who has conquered so we can conquer, in Christ and Christ in you, the hope of glory: the substance and assurance of glory, the eager, confident expectation of glory, the experience of glory: Christ’s light, Christ’s presence; glorified Christ’s Spirit.

“I give you the glory My Father gave to Me, so you may be one with our Father and Me” John 17:22-23

“In that day you will KNOW that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you” John 14:20

I shout to the Lord, giving thanks and honor, power and majesty to the King of Glory, the Father of Glory, now and is to come, from glory to glory, grace upon grace! The Word of God is Faithful and True; the Spirit of God is Trustworthy and True. I take refuge in the Strong Tower of God my Father; trusting in His Promises that never fail.

“You have HEARD, now will you SEE, and declare what you SEE?” yes and amen

Pure and Holy

“Let us rejoice and exult and give the Lord our God Almighty the glory; for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His Bride has made herself ready” Revelation 19:7

The Bride makes herself ready.

The Lamb of God has overcome this world, “It is finished!” The Lamb is the Shepherd who guides you to the springs of living water to drink” (Revelation 7:17; Revelation 21:6, 22:1-17). The Lion of God roars, “It is done! Behold, I make all things new! I am the beginning and the end [the Lion and the Lamb] Alpha and Omega. To the THIRSTY I will give from the fountain of life without payment. Those who CONQUER shall have this heritage and I will be your God and you my son. But as for the cowardly, faithless, polluted, murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, and liars, their lot shall be the lake that burns with fire and sulphur, which is the SECOND death” Revelation 21:5-8

“Weep not; lo the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals. And between the Throne and the four living creatures and among the elders I saw the Lamb who was slain, standing with seven horns and seven eyes that are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth…and the saints sing a NEW song…hast made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on earth” Revelation 5:5-10

“They make war on the Lamb and the Lamb will conquer them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those WITH HIM are called and chosen and faithful” Revelation 17:14

The Faithful, True, Righteous Judge makes war with eyes of fire; He is called The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, pure and holy, follow Him. From His Mouth issues a sharp Sword of the Spirit,The Word of God, King of kings and Lord of lords, slaying evil with the Holy Spirit and Rod of His Power, treading the wine press of the fury of the wrath of God to all that is evil (Revelation 19:11-16).

The Bride makes herself ready.

“Gain Christ, and be found in Him” Philippians 3:8-9

“Therefore, since you wait for the new heaven and new earth in which righteousness dwells, be zealous to be found by Him without spot or blemish, and at peace” 2 Peter 3:13-14

“And you who were once estranged and hostile in mind, doing evil, He has now reconciled in His body of flesh by His death, in order to present you holy and blameless and irreproachable before Him, provided you continue in faith and hope of the gospel you heard, which has been preached to every creature under heaven” Colossians 1:21-23

“I betrothed you to Christ to present you as a pure bride to her one Husband” 2 Cor 11:2

Examine yourselves, to see whether you are holding to your faith. Test yourselves. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you? — UNLESS you fail to meet the test!” 2 Cor 13:5

“You must remember…in the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions…setting up divisions, worldly people devoid of the HOLY Spirit. But you beloved, build yourself up on your most holy faith; pray in the HOLY Spirit; keep yourselves IN the Love of God, wait… [to be endued with power] 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 flesh. 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 1:17-25

God is Sovereign AND He has commanded each person to work out what He has worked in those who believe: Salvation, the Free Gift of God through grace, taken by faith. As a child of God we also need to grow up into the Head of all rule and authority; mature in Christ and receive Christ in you to be a bride, a wife of the Lamb; the Lamb of God enthroned in your heart; the Lion roaring over you; the Holy Spirit and fire River pouring upon, with, and in you, to flow rivers of living water from you (Revelation 22:1-17; John 7:37-39). The Bride has to make herself ready.

Philippians 2:12-18 says, “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for God is at work in you, both to will and to work…Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God, without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights of the world, holding fast The Word of Life, so that in the day of Christ you can be proud you didn’t run or labor in vain…be glad and rejoice [in what Jesus has done].”

The Goodness (glory) and Loving-Kindness (grace) of God our Savior appears to his beloveds, saving us by virtue of His own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal in the Holy Spirit poured out upon us richly, through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that we may be justified by His Grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life [substance, assurance, evidence of the unseen by faith]. The Saying is sure!” Titus 3:4-8. Be washed, stay in the River, in the Vine of Christ that connects the new heaven and new earth with Christ in you, the hope of glory; be regenerated and made new, continuously renewing the Mind of Christ that transforms you, seeing the glory of the Lord that changes you into His likeness from one degree of glory to another; for THIS comes from the Lord who IS the HOLY Spirit of God (Titus 3:4; Colossians 1:27; 2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1-27; 2 Cor 3:7-18; John 4:24, 7:37-39, 14:1-28; Luke 3:16).

“I baptize you with water; but He who is mightier than I…He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire…the chaff He will burn with unquenchable fire” Luke 3:16-17

By the Grace of God, lay your foundation on the finished work of the Cross of Jesus; the Day will disclose if you built on the resurrected, ascended, glorified Christ Jesus, when the Baptism of Fire comes upon you, burning up all that is not of Christ, leaving only Christ in you. If nothing remains, you will still be saved but only a through the fire (1 Cor 3:9-15). “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you…God’s temple is holy and that temple you are” 1 Corinthians 16-17.

“Our God is a consuming fire” Hebrews 12:29

“He makes His angels winds, and his servants flames of fire…Are they not ministering spirits sent forth to serve for the sake of those who are to obtain Salvation?” Hebrews 1:7,14

The seven spirits: seven torches of fire, seven horns of oil, seven eyes to see, are sent to all the earth (Revelation 5:5-10).

“Behold, I send my messenger…like refiner’s fire and like fuller’s soap…purifying…refining like gold and silver [making your body the living offering pleasing to God in the new covenant: holy and acceptable Romans 12:1]” Malachi 3:1-3

“For behold, the day comes, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble; the day that comes shall burn them up…leaving neither root nor branch [of satan’s tree of the knowledge of good and evil]. But for you who fear My Name the Sun of Righteousness shall rise, with healing in His Wings [Tree of Life: Christ]. You shall go forth like newborn calves…treading down the wicked, like ash under the soles of your feet” Malachi 4:1-3

“I would have you wise as to what is good and guileless to evil; then the God of Peace will soon crush satan under your feet. The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ with you” Romans 16:20

The God who raised the Lord, will also raise you up by His power. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Never unite yourself spiritually to anyone but Christ Jesus; unite physically only with your spouse in holy matrimony. “The two become one flesh. But those who unite to the Lord become one spirit with Him” 1 Cor 6:14-17 Shun immorality and sexual perversion and sin. “The 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? You were bought by the Blood of the Lamb by God. So glorify God in your body [in Christ and Christ in you; in Spirit and in Truth; in Light with no darkness at all] 1 Cor 18-20

“May the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is Faithful, and He will do it” 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24

Pure Power

In the beginning, the Word; the Word with God; the Word IS God.

All who receive the Word, believe in His Name, Pure Nature; He gives POWER to become children of God, born again, NOT of flesh and blood, but born anew from Above, OF GOD. Jesus made The Father known (John 1:1-18). Until The Son of God came to earth in the fullness of time, no one really knew God, and religions perverted the image and likeness, causing many to go astray. Men who wanted power, status, and perks for themselves, took power over others, but Jesus exposed them and they hated him and worked very hard to discredit and trip him up and twist his words. Jesus told us their father is the devil, and to this very day those who do not KNOW Jesus pervert Christianity (spirit of error, spirit of this world, god of this world who blinds the minds of unbelievers) and twist The Word and twist the words of believers (leviathan spirit); working in the darkness with hidden agendas to discredit and hurt (jezebel spirit), arrogantly full of themselves, lusting with their eyes, flesh and in pride, they put themselves above (luciferian spirit) those who would believe Jesus and follow His Way. Eating of satan’s tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they call evil “good” and good “evil”.

Jesus and the Father are one, yet all things in creation are still under God. Jesus said blaspheming against the Father and the Son is forgivable to those who repent, but blaspheming the Holy Spirit is unforgivable. The Father manifested as the Son of God; they are one, but it is the Holy Spirit in them that is the Pure Power of God Who is pure, holy fire of the Spirit of God that has no darkness at all, no mixture, no lies, only Truth, no evil, only the Goodness of God that is unspeakable; beyond words. In the beginning was The Word and The Word manifested as Jesus The Christ of God, The Anointed One, The Messiah.

“The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very POWER of God” 1 Cor 1:18

The Gospel of God is the POWER for salvation; Jesus IS Salvation; Jesus IS The Word; The Spirit of The Word is Pure POWER to turn, change, transform, transfigure; be made NEW, a new creature of the new creation, of the new covenant between God and His Lamb, who overcame sin, death and the works of the devil as the Lion of the tribe of Judah on the Cross when he roared, “It is Finished!” Now we work out what God works in us: His POWER of the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, the likeness of God. The Words contain the POWER to transform and perform the Word in you. For the Word to manifest in you, we have to die to self and resurrect with Christ so we can say, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” Galatians 2:20.

The mind cannot understand; the redeemed heart can understand when we receive and enthrone Jesus in our heart. The Holy Spirit joined with our innermost spirit man, is a river of water of life flowing in the center of our spirit and soul and body; strengthening us in our weakness, through the riches of God’s glory, through receiving Christ in you, that Christ may dwell in your heart through faith, to root and ground in Christ; The POWER to comprehend the height, depth, length and breadth, and to KNOW the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge (beyond words, experiential; actual encounters of His Love), that you may be filled with all the fullness of God: the POWER at work within you to do far more abundantly than you could ask or think (Ephesians 3:14-21).

Only God can make Christ the source of your life. Only the Holy Spirit can take God’s powerful Words and make them flesh in you by the POWER of the gospel: Jesus was crucified, died, buried, resurrected, ascended, and glorified; sending the Holy Spirit to put the glorified Christ Spirit River of light, glory, presence, fire power in you; to make you pure, refined by fire, and white as snow in the Blood. Only Jesus can deliver you from the dominion of darkness and transfer you into the Kingdom of the Son; giving you the gold refined by fire, the white garment and the eye anointing to SEE (Revelation 3:18).

“There’s POWER, POWER, wonder-working POWER in the Blood of the Lamb”

The POWER of God begins to work in you, but you have to take personal responsibility to WORK OUT what God works in (Philippians 2:12-13) so you can be who Jesus told us you could be if and when you come to Christ, turning (repentance) from the ways of the world, turning from the ways of fallen human beings, turning from darkness to light, turning from the power of satan to the POWER of God and be sanctified by FAITH in Jesus (Acts 26:18).

“It is The God who said, ‘Let Light shine out of darkness’ Who shines in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ (presence, light, glory, goodness). We have this treasure of glory in earthen vessels to show that the transcendent POWER belongs to God and not to us” 2 Cor 4:6-7

Taking power without Christ, is not authorized and will end in destruction; Christ has both the dunamis power and the exousia authority from God in both heaven and earth. Sorcery, human and animal sacrifices, witchcraft, circles, magic, spells, enchantments, mesmerism, hypnosis, word curses, are NOT authorized by God: thievery that steals salvation, kills, and eventually destroys life and this planet. Jesus comes to give you life and resurrection, abundant, fullness of life in Christ and Christ in you, now and is to come.

It is the knowledge of God and his glory of Christ that is to FILL the earth like water (Habakkuk 2:14, 3:2–19; Haggai 2:6-9; Zechariah 2:5). The River of Water of Life is Glorified Christ Spirit Who replaces our polluted water with His Pure Water full of fire and glory and POWER to transform and stay transformed from glory to glory, grace upon grace (Isaiah 11:1-2; Revelation 22:1-17; 2 Cor 3:18; John 1:14-16). The Word contains The Power to change you and make you new.

“And behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but stay in the [old city; old heavens and earth] until you are clothed with POWER from in high” Luke 24:49

“You are the light of the world. A CITY set on a hill that cannot be hid…Let your light shine…see you do the works of Jesus and give the glory to your Father who is in heaven” Jesus in Matthew 5:14-16

The new city is a new heaven and new earth where righteousness dwells; only Jesus is Righteous and we have to come to glorified Jesus to give Him our sin and receive His Righteousness in exchange. This is the ONLY Way that leads to the life and Spirit of God: the Word made flesh in us; Christ in you as you abide in Christ. We are called to be not only stewards of the manifold grace, but stewards of the mysteries of God that were hidden for ages and generations, but NOW revealed by the Holy Spirit sent to believers who wait for the Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus, after they are born again of Water and Spirit of life, passing from death to life in Christ; receiving the Counselor, the Helper from Above, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive because they can’t see or know Him, but you will KNOW Him when He dwells with you, and will be in you; turning you from an orphan spirit to the spirit of sonship. The world no longer sees Jesus; but in Christ you SEE; because Christ lives, you will also live. The Word becomes flesh in you: the life and Spirit of Christ in you, and you will KNOW the Love of Christ and be filled with all the fullness of God: the Father and His Christ will come to you and make Their Home with you; the Holy Spirit will teach you ALL things and bring you to REMEMBER Christ’s Words who says, “I will come to you” (John 14:16-28).

Jesus says, “You are WRONG, if you don’t KNOW the scriptures or the POWER of God” Matthew 22:29

“Ever since the creation of the world, God’s invisible nature, His eternal POWER and deity, have been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; although they once knew God, they now do not honor Him as God or give thanks to Him, but become futile in thinking and senseless dark minds…exchanging the glory of the immortal God with their own images. Therefore, they are lustful, perverted and impure, dishonoring their bodies, because they exchange the Truth about God for lies, and worship the creation instead of the Creator who is blessed forever…They refuse to acknowledge God [making themselves gods] with base minds and improper conduct…foolish, faithless, ruthless hearts…They not only do ungodly, unholy, unrighteous, perverted, twisted things, but approve of those who practice them” Romans 1:18-32

“The report of Jesus the Son of Man’s power spread even faster, and vast crowds came to hear him preach and to be healed of their diseases” Luke 5:15

The kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in POWER” 1 Cor 4:20

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear or timidity, but a spirit of POWER, love and self-control and self-discipline” 2 Timothy 1:7

His divine POWER has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and excellence, by which He has granted us his precious and very great Promises, that through these you may escape the corruption of this world, and become partakers of the divine nature” 2 Peter 1:3-4

“Christ reflects the glory of God and bears the very stamp of His nature, upholding the universe by His Word of POWER…superior to angels…Name above all names in heaven and on earth” Hebrews 1:3-4

God raised the Lord and will also raise you up by His POWER” 1 Cor 6:14

“Christ is not weak in dealing with you, but is POWERFUL in you. For Jesus was crucified in weakness, but LIVES by the POWER of God. For we are weak in Christ…but live with Him by the POWER of God. Examine yourselves, to see whether you are holding to your faith. Test yourselves. Do you not realize that when you abide in Christ, that Jesus Christ is in you? — unless you fail to meet the TEST!” 2 Cor 13:3-5

Count it all joy when your faith is tested by fire, for its full effect is that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing (James 1:2-4). “Blessed is the one who endures trial, for when they have stood the test, receive the crown of life which God promises to those who love Him…Do not be deceived. Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from Above coming down from the Father of lights…Of His own Will He brought us forth by the Word of Truth that we should be a kind of first-fruit of His creatures” James 1:12-18.

Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven: the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, the POWER of the Holy Spirit, and the glory of Christ when you abide in Christ and Christ in you.

The Spirit and Bride say, ‘Come.’ And those HEARING say, ‘Come.’ And let those THIRSTY for God [not thirsty for things of this world], who DESIRE Christ in you, TAKE the water of Christ Life and Spirit (Revelation 22:17).

“Behold, NOW is the time; behold, NOW is the Day of Salvation…Purity…and POWER with the weapon of Righteousness” 2 Corinthians 6:2-7

Thanks Be To God our Father and His Lamb

“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way, and that your body may keep well, even as I know your soul keeps well and prospers” 3 John 2 AMPC

We greatly rejoice in the sincerity and fidelity of Christ-Life, living in the Way, Truth and Life of God. I have no greater joy than to hear that all spiritual children of God are living their lives in the Truth (3 John 4), and nothing but the Truth, by the Help of God our Father, by the Holy Spirit wisdom and power given to those in Christ and Christ in you.

“He who does evil has not seen, discerned or experienced God; has experienced no vision of Him and does not know Him at all” 3 John 11 AMPC

“May mercy, soul-peace, and love be multiplied to you…Contend for the faith…for some have crept in stealthily, through a side door, not The Door of Resurrected Christ Jesus. Their doom was predicted long ago; ungodly persons who pervert grace: spiritual blessing and favor, of our God, into lawlessness and wantonness and immorality, and disown and deny our sole Master and Lord, Jesus Christ the Messiah, the Anointed One). Now I want to REMIND YOU…He delivered you and destroys those who do not believe, refusing to adhere to, trust in, and rely upon God. And angels, who abandoned their proper dwelling place, are under the thick gloom of utter darkness until the judgement and doom of The Great Day. The wicked are sentenced to suffer, just as Sodom and Gomorrah, who gave themselves over to impurity and indulged in unnatural vice and sensual perversity — are laid out in plain sight, as an exhibit of perpetual punishment to WARN of everlasting fire of judgment for unbelievers, and everlasting fire of the riches of glory of Christ, the likeness of God, for believers” Jude 1:2-7 AMPC

The heavenly treasure is Christ in our earthly vessels.

“Nevertheless, these dreamers corrupt their body; scorn and reject biblical authority and the government of Christ, revile and libel and scoff at heavenly glories…even Michael the Archangel said, “The Lord rebuke you!” to the devil when he contended over Moses’ body. But these worldly men revile anything they don’t understand, guided by their instincts like irrational beasts –by these they corrupt themselves and are destroyed and will perish. Woe to them! For they have taken the way of Cain, and have abandoned themselves in the error of Balaam, and will perish in their rebellion like Korah! (Jude 1:8-11 AMPC)

There are hidden elements of danger in their love feasts, carousing without scruples; clouds without water; trees without fruit, twice dead; wild waves of the sea, flinging up their own shame and disgrace; wandering stars; for whom the gloom of eternal darkness has been reserved forever. The Lord will come with his myriad of holy ones (ten thousand of his saints) to execute judgment upon all and to convict the unholy ones of their ungodly actions and words spoken against Christ Jesus. These grumblers complain of their own lot in life, controlled by their bodily desires, boastful, arrogant, flattering to gain advantage.

But you must REMEMBER, beloved, that we are told in the Word that in the last days, end times, there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions, stirring up division, devoid of the Holy Spirit, destitute of any higher spiritual life; influenced by unclean spirits, worldly people, following unholy spirits, making their own self God, separated from God our Father and His Christ.

But you beloved, build yourselves up in your most holy Faith, no longer tearing down what Jesus has done, is doing, and will continue to do for those who believe. Make spiritual progress, abiding in Christ and Christ in you (John 15:4); rising like an edifice higher and higher, praying at all times in the Holy Spirit. Guard and keep yourselves in the Love of God, the mercy that can bring you into life eternal in Christ and Christ in you. And refute or convict some who dispute with you, and convince some who waver and doubt. Strive to save others by snatching them out of the fire; on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment spotted by unredeemed flesh.

Now to Him Who is able to keep you from falling; and to establish, keep, and sustain you in Christ, and Christ in you, presenting you unblemished before the Presence of His glory, in triumphant joy and exultation for the finished work of the Cross of Jesus; to Him be the glory, majesty, might, dominion, and power, and authority, before all time, and now, and forever, unto all the ages of eternity (Jude 1:12-25).

Have You Come to the End of Self-Sufficiency?

“The only possibility of understanding the teaching of Jesus is by the light of the Spirit of God on the inside” and “When we have come to the end of ourselves, not in imagination but really, we are able to receive the Holy Spirit” (Oswald Chambers)

God has deeper understanding of your self than you do. We have to surrender what we think we understand, to ask and receive God’s life in us. Christ is made our new source of life, and made our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, redemption, forgiveness of sins and falling short of the glory, understanding, counsel, strength, power, authority, kingdom, excellence of soul, knowledge of God and His glory, reverential awe, wonder, miracles, faith, healing, prophesy, words of wisdom and knowledge, discernment of spirits, every good endowment, every perfect gift from the Father of lights, the Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus, the Holy One anointing that teaches you everything that is true, and no lie, and to abide in Christ (1 John 2:26-27); apart from Christ you can do nothing.

“For in Christ Jesus you are sons of God through faith…as many as are baptized INTO Christ, have PUT ON Christ” Galatians 3:26-27

All things are possible to you if you believe Jesus, agreeing with God.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the Mighty Hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you. Cast ALL anxieties upon Him, for He cares about you [more than you care about yourself]. Be sober, be watchful; your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking to devour you as his prey. Resist him, FIRM IN YOUR FAITH, knowing that all will suffer. BUT after you have suffered a little while, the God of all GRACE, who has called you to His eternal glory IN CHRIST, will Himself restore, settle, establish, and STRENGTHEN you. To Him be the dominion for ever and ever. Amen” 1 Peter 5:6-11

We surrender to God our Father, yield to be filled and led by the Holy Spirit internally, where we once followed Jesus only externally. We die daily, resurrecting WITH Christ IN us to partake of divine nature. “It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me” Galatians 2:20. Now we eat The Word, life and Spirit of God, and drink of The River of living water of life sourced from Christ: the Holy Spirit, fire, and glory light of Christ’s Presence.

We pray without ceasing: the Holy Spirit and High Priest pray in us 24/7 and the Word of God is our Sword of the Spirit. We pray at all times in the Spirit praying in us, interceding for those we lift up in prayer, using words when guided by Spirit; committed to continual, intimate communion; eating and drinking Christ, the Word and Spirit of God; both the Power and Wisdom of God.

When we come to the end of ourselves, we are ready to be fit for the impartation of the resurrected Christ by the Holy Spirit and fire, dissolving the old and forming the new.

If any one is in Christ they are a new creation, the old has gone, behold, the new has come” The transcendent power of God is put in our earthen vessels to show the light of the glory of Christ. We begin to reflect the glory of Christ as He reflects the Father of Glory.

Abide in Christ and Christ in you to become whole, complete and perfect (James 1:4): nothing lacking, broken, missing or impossible; satisfied, fulfilled, content: no more unsatisfied hunger or thirst (Isaiah 65:8-25): Spirit River is continuous drink and The Word is continuous food; apart from Christ you can do nothing.

Intimate union with Christ is holy, pure, gold refined by fire, clothed in white garments, and able to see what God is doing and saying, through the Holy Spirit and fire sent to those who come to the end of themselves, able to receive the new. Believe, receive, know, and stand in AWE of what God has done, is doing, and will continue to do for His beloveds in Christ and Christ in you.

Seek first the kingdom of God, His righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Reflect the Heavenly Sun of Righteousness, as Christ reflects the Father of Glory. Represent Christ as ambassador from heaven to earth in your temporary “tent of the meeting”: your body when the glory returns to fill your personal temple of God where the Holy Spirit dwells; changing the way you see, think, speak and act from one degree of glory to another; grace upon grace (1 Cor 3:16, 6:19; 2 Cor 3:12-4:18; John 1:14-16). We keep our eyes fixed on glorified Jesus and the things Above, instead of focusing on the things of this world (Colossians 3:1-3). We are hid with Christ in God, anxious for NOTHING as we take EVERYTHING to the Lord in prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, heart and mind IN Christ; beyond understanding (Philippians 4:4-9).

When it is God’s timing to take off our temporary tent and give us our permanent light body in eternal glory, we REJOICE in seeing our loved ones again who have already transitioned in Christ; apart from Christ there is nothing eternal.

The adversary sends demonic assignments against those in Christ and Christ in you, to try and influence you to reject Jesus, the Holy Bible, the Church: Christ’s Body flowing with Christ’s glorified Spirit (Ephesians 1:23); to stop doing the works of Jesus: destroying the works of the devil (1 John 3:6-10). Those who are still asleep, ignorant of the Way, Truth and Life of God, are used by the destroyer to hurt, harm, steal faith, kill joy, and destroy life. The number one killer last year, worldwide, was abortion. Jesus WARNED the devil would come to steal, kill and destroy, but He came, is here in Spirit, and will continue to come, to give life, and life abundant in the Holy Spirit and fire of His pure, holy Light, Love, and Presence.

Those who refuse to come to the Light will remain in darkness.

Steve Hepden: 2020 Vision is Eagle-Eyed — Richard’s Watch

God is calling us to be ‘Eagle Eyed.’ An eagle’s vision is said to be the best in the animal kingdom. Its eyesight is estimated to be up to eight times more powerful than the average human. Eagles, can see at least four or five times farther than we can, which means they have 20/4 or 20/5 vision. Isa 40:31, ‘but they who wait, [hope, trust] for [in, on, upon] the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.’ God wants us to go higher, deeper and further in the spiritual realm!
