There is a philosophical idea that says “live in the question” but I am putting forth a spiritual idea: live in the answer. The answer is God….
Live from the finished work of the cross: God dwelling in the human heart; God in the midst of human beings; Christ in us the hope of glory; Christ flowing out of us the manifested glory; Christ expressed outward from our transformed heart as the manifest presence of God on earth; and the Shekinah Glory Presence of God seen shining as brilliant Light through every pore of our body temple!
Live in the answer!
Give your heart to God and God will give you hers. Circumcision is the removal of all that the world has put in your heart: all of the hurts, wounds, traumas, betrayals, abandonment, lack of love, acceptance, approval or belonging, so the Holy Spirit can give you a new Heart filled with the Spirit and Life of God. Out of your new heart, rivers of Living Water will flow. Jesus offered the Samaritan woman at the well his Living Water to heal, comfort, and transform the hurts and wounds from “having five husbands and the husband you have now is not your husband” (John 4:18).
The death pangs of dying to self are very real, painful and accompanied by deep, dark emotions, even agony. Dying to self is a real process, not just a figurative one. But it is also a real, felt experience when Christ Spirit fills your new heart, soul, mind and spirit with unspeakable Joy. This is the rapture of the soul!!! This is the end of tribulation and the beginning of the 1000 years of reigning with Christ on his throne in the new heavens on earth now!!! Receive the new heart filled with flowing Living Water, the Spirit of God!!!
“Those whom I love, I reprove and chasten; so be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to her and eat with her, and she with me. She who conquers, I will grant her to sit with me on my throne, as I myself conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne” Rev 3:19-21
Open the door and be lifted up in conscious awareness and consciousness to reign on the throne with Christ. The journey to die to self and be given a new Christ Self is sometimes excruciatingly agonizing and painful but the resurrection, ascension and new birth is well worth any pain of death throes of the self.
Awake my soul, I will awaken the dawn! The new dawn of light in our soul is the “bright morning star” (Rev 22:16) rising in our new Christ hearts!!! “And the Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come'” Rev 22:17. I be Come!!! I be and become!!! I am!!! Thank God!!! All Glory and Honor and Praise be to God!!!!
“As another of Kierkegaard’s pseudonyms, Anti-Climacus writes, ‘That the human race is supposed to be in kinship with God is ancient paganism; but that an individual human being is God, is Christianity, and this particular human being is the God-man.’ (Practice in Christianity, 82)”
Don’t be a Chris–tian, be a Christ–ian; be a “Christ-like-one”
