One With The Son

saved by grace in the Blood of the Lamb of God

righteous by faith in God and his Christ, the Word made flesh

abide in Christ and Christ in you

“You are already made clean by the Word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me and I in you…I am the Vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing” John 15:3-5

“My sheep hear My Voice” John 10:27

“All led by the Holy Spirit are the sons of God” Romans 8:14

“If you abide in Me and My Words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples” John 15:7-8

“We know He has chosen you; for our gospel came not only in Word, but also in Power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction…for you received the Word…inspired by the Holy Spirit…the Word of the Lord sounded forth from you…turning from idols to serve a living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come” 1 Thessalonians 1:4-10

Come out of her, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues”

delivered by Jesus

“Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the the inheritance of the saints in Light. 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 1:12-14

“God is the Source of your life IN CHRIST JESUS, whom God made your Wisdom, your righteousness and sanctification and redemption” 1 Cor 1:30

helped, taught, counseled, led, endowed, gifted, anointed, empowered, embodied by Holy Spirit

“Respect…esteem them highly in love because of their work. Be at peace amongst yourselves. We exhort you, brethren, admonish the idlers, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. See that none of you repays evil for evil, but always seek to do good to another and to all. Rejoice always, pray constantly (in the Spirit and the Spirit in you), give thanks in all circumstances (IN not FOR all circumstances), for this is the Will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit, do not despise prophesying; test everything; hold fast to what is good, abstain from every evil. May the God of Peace Himself sanctify you wholly; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is Faithful, and He will do it” 1 Thessalonians 5:12-24

“Now there are a variety of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of working, but it is the same God who inspires them all. To each is given a manifestation of the Spirit for the common good…utterance of wisdom, and to another utterance of knowledge…faith…gifts of healing…working of miracles…prophecy…ability to distinguish between spirits…various kinds of tongues…interpretation of tongues. All these are inspired by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as He wills…By one Spirit we are baptized into the one Body of Christ…all made to drink of the one Spirit” (1 Cor 12:4-13; Ephesians 4:4)

“IN CHRIST JESUS you are all sons of God, through faith…baptized INTO CHRIST, have PUT ON CHRIST” Galatians 3:23-29

Bottom Line: the world tree is of this world; satan’s tree of the knowledge of good and evil, who is the father of lies, whose children have his fallen spirit, though it appears beautiful and good, it is a mixture of good and evil. Proponents say if you don’t cling to the good and accept the evil, you will be enlightened and ascend, but it is a lie from the thief who comes to steal, kill and destroy life.

Jesus says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, they 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 of flesh is flesh (of this world; under the biology of fallen parents Adam and Eve), but that which is born of the Spirit is new spirit (of God our Father and his Christ; under the Kingship of the King of kings and Lord of lords; under the rule and reign of Christ in the order of Melchizedek: no biological parents; God is Father “above all and through all and in all” who come to Christ and receive Christ in you)). Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You MUST be BORN AGAIN” John 3:3-7

Jesus was marvelous, doing the works of God, bringing the kingdom of God to earth to change our lives. “The great multitudes gathered to hear and to be healed…the diseased and those troubled with unclean spirits came to hear and be healed…cured. And all the crowd sought to touch Him, for Power came forth from Him and healed them all” (Luke 5:15, 6:17-19). Believe! Receive! Jesus marveled at unbelief (Mark 6:6); I marvel at those who idolize marvel comics and don’t marvel at God coming to earth in a womb to save, heal, deliver, set us free; giving us second birth.

But make no mistake, Jesus is no longer a baby; he died, resurrected, ascended back to His Father’s Throne above the highest heavens, and was glorified; sending believers the River of His glorified Spirit, so rivers of Christ can flow from believers. Now the Lord is the Holy Spirit and fire that transforms and conforms believers to Christ-likeness (2 Cor 3:17-18), the image of Christ reflecting God; the fire around Christ, in you; in Christ, the glory of God, and Christ in you; the same glory that the Father gave Jesus, Christ gives you to be one with God and the Lamb, doing the works and greater works (John 14:12-17:26).

Jesus came, comes, and will continue to come to give Life and Life abundant to those who ask and receive, to give glory to God our Father. His tree is the tree of Life and it is all good, all light without darkness at all; pure, righteous, just, royal, noble, honorable, lovely, excellent, praise-worthy, reverent-awe worthy, wonder-full, miraculous, majestic, powerful, humble, holy Spirit of God.

How Do You Judge a Tree?

Jesus says, “You will know what tree a person is eating from by the fruit that is produced.”

A satanic tree produces fruit of lies, wrong judgment (judges this world’s works are good and Jesus’ works are bad), grieving and quenching the Holy Spirit sent to believers of Jesus (mistakenly say saving souls, healing, deliverance and setting people free are satanic not the work and greater works of Jesus written in John 14:12), grumbling, complaining, and accusers of the brethren. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil, so those who are antiChrist will hate Jesus and the works He does through his called out, sent out, consecrated ones, who choose to do the Will of God on earth as it is in heaven (John 17:18-19; Matthew 6:10).

A tree of life (Christ in you as you abide in Christ John 15:1-27) produces fruit of the Spirit of God: love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness, kindness, patience, faithfulness and self-control; the fruit of light that is all that is good and righteous and true, having learned what is pleasing to the Lord (Ephesians 5:9); and the fruits of righteousness (Christ in you; only Jesus is righteous): salvation, healing, deliverance, miracles, prophesy (the testimony of Jesus), faith, words of wisdom, words of knowledge, discerning of Spirits, tongues, interpretation of tongues, Christ living, moving and having His Being in you through the Holy Spirit sent to believers of the Way, the Truth and the Life of God: our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords who leads the holy, heavenly angel armies.

“It is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with all the fruits of righteousness which come through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God” Philippians 1:9-11

Do not quench the Holy Spirit” 1 Thess 5:19

“Let no evil talk come out of your mouth, but only such as is good for edifying, as fits the occasion, that it may impart grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God” (Titus 3:2; Ephesians 4:29-30

“In Christ Jesus…do not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has wrought to win obedience from the Gentiles, by word and deed, by the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Holy Spirit…fully preach the gospel of Christ…not where Christ has already been named, lest you build on another man’s foundation, but has been written, ‘They shall see who have never been told of Him, and they shall understand who have never heard of Him” Romans 15:17-21

“The written code kills, but the Spirit gives life” 2 Cor 3:6

“Pray at all times in the Spirit…keep alert…that utterance may be given in opening mouth to boldly proclaim the mystery of the gospel” Ephesians 6:18-19

“Yes to this day when Moses is read a veil lies over their minds; but when a man turns to the Lord the veil is removed. 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 Christ -likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit…even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the likeness of God…We have this treasure in earthen vessels to show that the transcendent power belongs to God and not to us…that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies…in our mortal flesh…For it is all for Jesus’ sake that as grace extends to more and more people, that it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God” 2 Cor 3:15-4:15

All thanks and honor and praise and worship and majesty and dominion and glory be to God our Father and his Christ, Amen.

Remembering a Man of God

From https://reinhard.cfan.org/obituary/

World renowned evangelist and author Reinhard Bonnke has passed away. He was 79 years old.

Evangelist Bonnke was perhaps best known for his pioneering mass evangelism events. Held throughout Africa and beyond, these Gospel Outreach Campaigns literally reached hundreds of millions of individuals across the world. In 2000, Bonnke attracted an astounding 1.6 million attendees at a single meeting in Lagos, Nigeria. All told, Evangelist Bonnke saw more than 79-million people choose to follow Christ as a result of his ministry.

.Reinhard Bonnke was born on the 19th of April 1940 in Königsberg, East Prussia, Germany. His father was a pastor. At the tender age of 9, Bonnke himself became a Christ-follower. Very soon after, he began to proclaim his intention to be a preacher and missionary to Africa. And he followed through on that dream.

He attended The Bible College of Wales in Swansea which was led by Samuel Rees Howells. Howells was famous as a man whose prayers were answered – an individual of great faith. Howells’ example deeply inspired Bonnke and he himself prayed, “Lord, I also want to be a man of faith. I want to see your way of providing for needs.” Bonnke could not have known then the incredible extent to which God would answer that request.

After college, Bonnke took up a pastorate in Hamburg, Germany. On the journey from the college to Germany, he had a free day and chose to spend it sight-seeing in London. He didn’t have money for a formal tour, so he decided to hop on a bus and see where it took him. Eventually, he landed at the door step of healing evangelist George Jeffreys – one of the most consequential missionaries of the previous generation. The then 21-year-old Bonnke took a chance and knocked on the door. The aged Jeffreys admitted him, laid his hands on him and blessed him.

The following day, Evangelist Bonnke arrived in Hamburg. His father picked him up at the station and before Bonnke could say a word about the providential encounter, his father relayed the news that George Jeffreys had passed away overnight. Bonnke would point to that encounter as the moment he received the mantel of a healing evangelist.

Still, it was sometime before the Evangelist walked in the full realization of that call. He pastored in Germany through most of the 1960’s, marrying his wife, Anni, in 1964. Then, in 1967, with two small children, the Bonnke family relocated to the tiny South African kingdom of Lesotho as missionaries. The ministry was nominally successful, and then, God gave Evangelist Bonnke a dream. In it, he saw the entire continent of Africa covered in the blood of Jesus and heard a voice declare, “Africa shall be saved!” That has been Bonnke’s battle cry ever since.

In 1974, Evangelist Bonnke formed Christ for All Nations (CfaN) as a means of facilitating the fulfilment of that dream. CfaN has worked with one goal: to reach Africa with the gospel, from Cape Town to Cairo. By the grace of God, they’ve been incredibly successful in that effort.

The ministry has grown though numerous iterations. Initially, they were known for gathering thousands under a huge tent. But, when the tent was blown away by a storm, God expanded Bonnke’s vision to reach crowds no tent, save the sky itself, could hold. In 1981, Peter Vandenberg (currently Vice President of CfaN) joined the team and brought his unique blend of ministry and engineering experience to bear. Soon the team was employing modular stages and innovative speaker designs to reach crowds that frequently numbered in the hundreds of thousands.  Accordingly, hundreds of millions of people from nearly every nation in Africa have heard Evangelist Bonnke’s clear, fiery presentation of the truth of God’s love displayed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

However, the crowds were drawn to much more than Bonnke’s passionate oratory. From the very beginning, the multi-day events were marked by profound miracles and incredible displays of God’s power. The dead have been raised, blind eyes opened, crippled legs made to stand and walk. Demons have been cast out, depression healed, and families restored. And CfaN has been ruthless in their verification of these claims. The numbers have been so consistent and overwhelming that even to cynics it seems more impossible for them to have been faked than for them to be real.

Naturally, the phenomenal crowd sizes and undeniable flow of supernatural miracles brought a lot of attention to Evangelist Bonnke and CfaN. He was regularly featured on Christian television, spoke widely at large churches and conferences and more than 190-million copies of his 40+ books are in circulation. Many world leaders counted him as a trusted voice of counsel. There are many parts of the world where Reinhard Bonnke is a household name. Many of today’s best-known ministers point to him as a role model – both on and off stage. Brian Houston, Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church, said of Evangelist Bonnke, “Over the years, his unwavering passion to win souls for the Kingdom has never ceased to inspire me to connect people to Jesus, their Savior. I love the way salvation resonates in his spirit, whether he’s on a platform speaking to millions or behind the scenes having a chat – Jesus is always on his lips.”

In addition to his tremendous global influence, he was known by family, friends and colleagues as a man of deep humility, compassion and service. By all accounts, Evangelist Bonnke lived as if obedience to God was the only true success. As he wrote in his autobiography, Living a Life of Fire,

In truth, I have done nothing alone. God has called me and has been my pilot. The Holy Spirit has been my comforter, my guide, and my power source… He brought to me the perfect wife. He gave us our beautiful children and extended family. And He has provided a team that has grown with me through decades of working together. Beyond that, He has brought thousands to stand with us. They have supported us in prayer and in partnership. Our rewards in Heaven will be equal.

In the mid-2000s God gave Evangelist Bonnke the foresight “to know that the baton has to be passed on to the young generation. This ministry is not my private property. It is all by God’s grace.” He began to mentor Daniel Kolenda and over the course of the decade, shared increasing responsibility with his protégé. Evangelist Kolenda became Lead Evangelist and CEO of CfaN in 2011. In 2017, before a crowd of nearly a million people in Lagos, Nigeria, Evangelist Bonnke prayed for Evangelist Kolenda as George Jeffreys had for him nearly 50 years before. Today, under Evangelist Kolenda’s leadership, CfaN continues to enjoy the same reach, favor and miracles that it did under Evangelist Bonnke’s 30+ year tenure. It is a transition that only the Holy Spirit could have orchestrated and perhaps one of the greatest proofs of Bonnke’s qualities as a disciple of Christ.

Reinhard Bonnke is survived by his wife, Anni, three adult children, Kai-Uwe, Gabrielle, and Susanne and eight grandchildren. We share in their grief – even as we celebrate his immense legacy.

Thanksgiving for the God of Hope

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope” Romans 15:13

The God of peace crushes satan under our feet when we are wise to what is good and guileless as to what is evil (Romans 16:19-20). Do not let the Good of God be spoken of as evil (Romans 14:16). The kingdom of God is righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17).  In the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit in you, we are ministers of Christ Jesus in the priestly service of the gospel of God our Father, sanctified by the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:16). In Christ, the Holy Spirit can take our hope and turn it into Christ’s power, authority, confidence, boldness in thought, word and deed, by the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:19). All things are possible for those who believe. With men it is impossible, but with God all things are possible; apart from Christ Jesus you can do nothing.

Receive Christ and be aglow in the Spirit…take thought for what is noble, pure, true, just, lovely, excellent, gracious, honorable, worthy of praise (Romans 14:11; Philippians 4:8).

The God of hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love is poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit who is given to believers who become receivers, who TAKE what is freely given to heart and mind, to live, move and have your being in Christ and Christ in you, the hope of glory (Romans 5:5; Colossians 1:27).

The “hope” of Christ is not hope as defined by this world, as wishing; the hope found in Christ is the sure and steadfast anchor of our soul in the tree of life through the finished work of the Cross. Fallen Adam and the unclean spirits of this world are nailed to the cursed tree now and forever in Christ; apart from Christ you are still under their influence. When we come to Christ Jesus we are no longer of satan’s tree or of this world but of the Spiritual Realm of the God our Father. When Christ comes to live in you, you belong to the tree of life in the paradise of God; rooted and grounded in Christ, living in Christ, branches in heavenly places with Christ; Christ in you, the hope of glory.

The God of Hope does not disappoint; the River of His Spirit is a Spirit of fire Power, and Spirit of Love, and of a sound Mind of Christ, pouring forth from the Throne as a River that becomes a fountain of life with Christ in you, Rivers of the Spirit of the Lord, wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge of God and his glory, reverential awe, wonder, miracles, healing, prophesy, faith, hope, love, righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit; the kingdom of God and his righteousness begin to flow from your spirit and soul and body and life in Christ to this hungry, thirsty, dark world of hopelessness.

“But he who has doubts is condemned…for whatever does not proceed from faith is sin” Romans 14:23

“But let him ask in faith without doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways, will receive anything from the Lord” James 1:6-8

“Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren” James 1:16

“I write this to you about those who would deceive you; but the anointing which you receive from the Father and his Son abides in you, and you have no need that any one teach you; as his anointing teaches you about everything and is true, and is no lie, just as it has taught you, abide in Christ” 1 John 2:26-27

Jesus says, “Abide in Me, and I in you” (John 15:4)

Knowing the Love of Christ and Christ in you, is all the fullness of God working in and through you; the Victory of the Lord on your behalf; the new Source of your life, God makes Christ our wisdom, our righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption (1 Cor 1:30).

“Everyone who has this hope set on Christ purifies himself, even as Christ is pure. Everyone who sins commits lawlessness. Sin is lawlessness. You know that Jesus was revealed to take away our sins, and no sin is in Jesus. Whoever remains in him doesn’t sin. Whoever sins hasn’t seen him and doesn’t know him” 1 John 3:3-6

“I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these because I go to The Father…I will ask the Father and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener and Standby), that He may remain with you forever — the Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to heart), because it does not see Him nor know and recognize Him, for He lives with and in believers…the world will not see Me any more, but believers will see Me; because I live you will live also [resurrection lives in Christ and Christ in you]…Now I have told you before it occurs, so that you may believe and have faith in and rely on Me John 14:12-29 AMP classic

“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loves us and gives us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish your heart in every good work and word” 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

Thanksgiving for the God of all Comfort

Holy Spirit is the Comforter, the Helper, the Binder of the brokenhearted, binding us to the heart of Christ Jesus when we cry out to God our Father.

When we can’t go on, Holy Spirit is the power that comes into our weakness,

the sure and steadfast anchor for our soul in the storm

lifting us to the Rock that is higher than us.

Jesus is the Rock we hold to when the waves overwhelm us

or the fire is raging;

the Light that pierces through the darkness.

Jesus is the unchanging Goodness in the sea of ugliness, broken dreams and shattered lives;

the healer of the broken hearted

who gives us his Life and Truth when the enemy takes ours.

“He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds” Psalm 147:3

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our afflictions, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too…Hope is unshaken…We were so utterly, unbearably crushed that we despaired of life itself. We felt as if we had received a sentence of death; but that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead” 2 Corinthians 1:3-9

“Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever”

Thank God for Jesus’ finished work of the Cross so that our Father can send the Holy Spirit to be upon, with and in those who believe. Holy Spirit help those who remain in unbelief. Thank God for the Holy Spirit Comforter. When the destroyer thinks he has won, resurrection life comes from the Holy Spirit Comforter.

Abba Father, I ask and thank you for healing and comfort for all those grieving, mourning, and in sorrow for loss. Lord Jesus I ask you to touch them through the Holy Spirit to know you are real and present to the broken hearted. Amen.

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” Psalm 34:18

“I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering Rock of safety” Psalm 46:1

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” Psalm 46:1

“Holy Spirit will keep you in perfect peace as your mind is stayed on Jesus and you trust in God our Father”

“I lift my eyes up to the hills. From whence does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved, he who keeps you will not slumber or sleep. The Lord is your keeper…The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and for evermore” Psalm 121:1-8

Thanksgiving for “It is Finished”

I give all thanks and honor to God for sending Jesus to save, heal, deliver and set us free. When Jesus said, “It is finished” on the Cross, I give thanks that it was finished, and we access the finished work of the Cross in Christ. We take it by faith through grace.

“God is the Source of our life [in Christ and Christ in you], making Christ our wisdom, our righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption” 1 Cor 1:30

I give all thanks and honor and authority and power to the Majestic Glory of God and his Christ for sending the Holy Spirit to be with believers forever (John 14:16-28).

I give all thanks and honor and authority and power and praise and worship and glory to our Abba Father and his Lamb who say, “It is done” (Revelation 21:6). We take it by faith, through grace, by the power of the Holy Spirit: we receive Christ in our spirit and soul and body to be able to say with glorified Christ Jesus, “It is done” also in you when you answer the knock on the door of your heart and let Christ come in to live, move and have his being in you. “The mystery hidden for ages and generations, but revealed in Christ to you, is “Christ in you, the hope of glory” [confidence, boldness, and eager expectation].

“We impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glorification…What no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart of man conceived…God has revealed to us through the Spirit…No one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God [sent to believers of Jesus, who agree with His Father, and are called by The Son’s Name above every name that can be named]. Now we have received NOT the spirit of this world, but the Spirit which is from God…not imparted by words but taught by the Holy Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who possess the Spirit” 1 Cor 2:6-13

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

If we truly belong to Jesus, we take His Name, eternally belonging to God our Father, the Creator of heavens and the earth.

“IF any one is in Christ, they are a new creature/creation, the old has passed away, behold, the new has come. All this is from God” 2 Cor 5:17-18

In Christ and Christ in you, we regard no one who is baptized into Christ from a human point of view, just as we once viewed Jesus as a human, after the finished work of the Cross we view him in his glorified Being, one with The Father in the glory, just as we become one with The Father and His Christ in the glory that comes down from heaven out of God to change, endow, equip, gift, anoint; transforming us into the image and likeness of Christ, the exact image and likeness of God our Father.

“Do not quench the Spirit” 1 Thessalonians 5:19

Thanksgiving for the Word

I give all thanks and honor and blessing and majesty and dominion and praise and worship and glory to God our Father for the Word made flesh, fulfilling the law and prophets, setting us free through the Cross of Jesus, the Blood of the Lamb of God, the River of water of life and the Spirit of God; allowing us to be born again of God; in this world but no longer of it;

the same resurrection Power that raised Jesus from the dead now living in believers, as Christ in you,

and the glorified Word, now King of kings and Lord of lords, whom heavenly holy angel armies hear, and hearken to, and perform, through those who are in Christ and Christ in you.

The Word is Faithful and True and Righteous; the only occupied territories are those who have asked and received Christ in you, to be totally possessed by the Holy Spirit of God our Father and his Christ; to let the kingdom of God and his righteousness flow from the Throne in and through you to the ends of the earth. “Do you not know that you are a temple of God, if the Holy Spirit indeed dwells within you?”

The Holy Spirit writes the Word on your heart and mind; the Holy Spirit forms Christ in you, sustains and maintains Christ in you, the hope of glory.

The hope of glory for this earth is Christ in you, not “world peace”. “Peace I give you, NOT as the world gives do I give you.” “In the world you will have tribulation, but in Me you will have Peace”. Jesus is the answer to every crisis, circumstance and issue. Stop listening to this world’s wisdom, and ask and receive The Wisdom of God our Father, who created heaven and earth, and knows how his creation works and how he designed human beings to be, do and live. All people need Jesus, not human solutions; humans need to be born again of God to partake of divine nature through the Holy Spirit.

It is time to turn from this world and turn to God our Father through Jesus and receive the Holy Spirit: the Spirit of the Lord upon, with and in you, the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, the Spirit of Counsel and Might, the Spirit of the Knowledge of God and his Glory, the Spirit of Awe and Wonder and Miracles and Faith and Prophesy and Healing and Deliverance and Freedom!

All the issues of this present world came about by turning away from The Word and The Spirit of God; the solution is obvious: the ways of man lead to destruction, but The Way of God is Life and Truth!

Thank you Abba Father for making a Way when there was no way. We turn from the ways of this world to Your Holy Spirit to lead us into Your Ways that have no harmful side effects, no downside, no darkness at all; the Best for all people, tribes, tongues and nations! Thank you Jesus! Thank God for God!

Thanksgiving for Abba! Father!

“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God…when we receive the spirit of sonship we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’ It is the Spirit himself bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God…heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ” Romans 8:14-17

The fallacy the world continues to put forth that a holy, righteous God can have fellowship with darkness; living the lie has eternal consequences that leads you right into the devil’s trap, the same trap he led humanity into, causing Adam to fall: believing Lucifer’s lies instead of the Truth of God. But God had a Plan for the “fullness of time” to send Jesus, God manifested in the flesh, to empty himself of divinity to save humanity, and the eternal result is atonement, forgiveness, salvation, justification, righteousness, sanctification, redemption and glorification when we come to Jesus, give him our fallen human nature and begin to partake of his divine nature given to us in Christ and Christ in us. Apart from Christ we can do nothing, but on the Vine, cared for by the Vinedresser through the Holy Spirit, we can bear the Fruits of Righteousness, the Fruit of light, and the Fruit of the Holy Spirit.

“It depends not upon man’s will or exertion, but upon God’s mercy…The Potter has right over the clay to make out of the same lump one vessel for beauty and another for menial use. What if God, desiring to show his wrath [against evil] and to make known his Power, has endured with much patience the vessels of wrath made for destruction, in order to make known the riches of his glory for the vessels of mercy which he has prepared beforehand for glory…Those who were not my people I will call ‘my people,’ and her who was not beloved I will call ‘my beloved’…they will be called ‘sons of the living God.‘” Romans 9:16-26

Righteousness is through faith; no one is righteous but Jesus and we come to Christ Jesus to receive righteousness when we give him our fallen human nature. You can have “zeal for God but not be enlightened” for we have to come to Christ and give him our past self and life to receive Christ as the Source of our new life, holy, righteous, blameless, irreproachable, spotless and present in the glory of the Lord in Christ and Christ in you. Apart from Christ you are still under the letter of the law instead of the Spirit, and no one can be righteous apart from Christ in you. “Christ is the end of the law, that every one who has FAITH may be justified” Romans 10:1-4

You can know about Christ and refuse to come to FAITH in him. You can know about God but continue to have faith only in yourself, in this world,  in world authorities, in science, technology, education, training, religion, magic, sorcery, works of the devil, animal or human sacrifice, and not come to rely on, trust in, and depend on God our Father and his Christ as Source of life and supplier of all our needs.

Salvation is FOR ALL who take the Word by Faith in your heart and on your lips. “Every one who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved” Romans 10:5-13

Faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard that brings one to Faith is hearing about Christ Jesus: the Good News! the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ Jesus, the likeness of God! the Light that cannot be overcome by the darkness! Come to the Light and see the Light! be changed into Christ likeness from glory to glory; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

If you take the leaven of Christ in your body, your whole body will become full of Christ; if you root in Christ, your branches will also be in Christ, the tree of Life/eternity planted by God in your heart before the foundation of the world. It is only activated and begins to grow by coming to Christ Jesus, to be reconciled with God our Father, to be given the Holy Spirit to wash and regenerate and keep renewing Christ in you where the darkness and devil can have NO PART. Stand in Awe and Wonder of Christ Jesus and the “kindness and severity of God: severity to those who have fallen and refuse to come to Jesus, The Way, God sent to ALL humanity to be restored into the image and likeness of God. God’s kindness is to those who continue in his kindness. IF those who are fallen do not persist in their UNBELIEF, they will be grafted again into the tree of Life: in Christ and Christ in you (Romans 11:16-25).

“God consigned all men to disobedience, that he may have mercy upon all. O the depths of the riches and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways…For from him and through him and to him are all things” Romans 11:32-36

Outside of Christ is darkness and mixed darkness with light, but in God there is only Light and no darkness at all. We come to Christ to come to the Light and be sons of Light. We present our living body as spiritual worship; we enter the glory to receive glory through praise and worship. “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed” Romans 12:1-2

“Be aglow with the Spirit” Romans 12:11

Know what hour it is, how it is full time NOW to wake from spiritual sleep…the night is far gone, the Day is at hand. Cast off the works of darkness and 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. For the kingdom of God is not food and drink but RIGHTEOUSNESS and PEACE and JOY in the HOLY SPIRIT” Romans 14:16-17

Show God’s truthfulness, confirm the promises of the Father, and glorify God in Christ and Christ in you.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the Power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope…be acceptable by being sanctified by the Holy Spirit…by Word and deed, by the Power of signs and wonders, by the Power of the Holy Spirit…fully preach the gospel of Christ…share in the spiritual blessings…that come in the fullness of the blessing of Christ…The God of Peace be with you all” Romans 15:13-33

“Avoid those who create dissensions and difficulties, in opposition to the doctrine taught by the Holy Spirit…they deceive the hearts of the simple-minded [have not received the Mind of Christ that renews and transforms]…be wise to what is good and guileless to what is evil; then the God of Peace will soon crush satan under your feet” Romans 16:17-20

“Now to him who is ABLE to strengthen you according the preaching of Christ Jesus, according to the REVELATION of the mystery which was kept secret for longs ages BUT NOW disclosed and through the prophetic writings IS MADE KNOWN to all nations, according to the COMMAND of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of FAITH–to the only wise God be glory forevermore THROUGH JESUS! Amen” Romans 16:25-27
