When there is a storm, whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual, help us to say, “Peace, be still!” with all the authority and power you gave to us as sons of the Living God! When fear arises, your mind is racing, say, “Peace, be still!” When your emotions are turbulent, feeling stress, worry, bad, unworthy, unloveable or alone, say, “Peace, be still!” When your body is craving sweets, alcohol, drugs, sex, in an addictive way, say, “Peace, be still!” When your spirit is troubled with thoughts of lack or limitation, rumination, regret, shame, or being misunderstood, say, “Peace, be still!” When the world events such as fear of ebola or terrorism steals, kills or destroys your peace, say, “Peace, be still!”
Jesus gave all dominion, authority and power to his followers so we could do what he did and even greater things for the glory of God. But we were told to WAIT until power comes upon you; wait for the Spirit and Fire to come upon you from on high. I feel that too many people are followers of Christ in name only; they talk about God but the Spirit and Fire of God is not in their heart. They give the name “christianity” a black eye of hypocrisy and powerlessness, and cause many to walk away or reject Jesus for a counterfeit. This is the apostasy spoken of in the bible where false shepherds, false prophets, false religion and counterfeit spirituality turn people away from Jesus and the Living Water of Life. Without the baptism by the ascended Jesus, we cannot receive the Fire and Spirit of God. Before the finished work of the cross, John the Baptist baptized with water, but he said that Jesus would baptize with Fire and Spirit! It is time to take the next step!
The next step is to become like Jesus and be his new creation! How are we remade like Christ Jesus (my CJ!)? Through the Fire of God and Spirit of God baptism! Only CJ united with Abba could send their one Spirit to wash and regenerate us into the new creation able to enter the new heavens on earth now (NHOEN)! Moses was amazing but his glory faded and he was not allowed to enter God’s Rest: the promised land. Joshua entered (Hebrews 4:8) but it is just a shadow of CJ taking us into God’s Rest: NHOEN!!!! The new heavens on the new earth is the Rest for CJ’s new creation! Jesus says, “Come to me you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest…I will give you rest for your soul” Matthew 11:28
The Rest that Jesus is talking about is not just ease or relaxation or a vacation from stress or a weekend off from work or a saturday or sunday sabbath. The Rest that CJ calls us into is the eternal sabbath where all the work is already done: salvation, justification, sanctification, glorification and re-creation of human beings into the divine nature of Christ. The Rest is the wholeness, oneness and freedom of being make into Christ’s likeness and God’s image! We are made like the ascended Christ Jesus! We are healed and made whole; all who came to Jesus were healed! We are made perfectly one with God; Jesus prayed this for us and he won’t stop interceding until it is done on earth as it is in heaven (John 17: ). We are set free and free indeed! For freedom we are set free; we are set free to enter the NHOEN, God’s Rest!
“Come up higher daughter and receive my Rest!”
“Since therefore it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly received the good news failed to enter because of disobedience, again he sets a certain day, ‘Today’…’Today when you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.’ For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not speak later of ANOTHER DAY. So then there remains a sabbath rest for the people of God; for whoever enters God’s rest also ceases from his labors as God did from his. Let us then strive to enter THAT REST” Hebrews 4:1-13
We are not to strive to work for the world’s idea and beliefs about rest; we are to strive to believe and receive so we can enter the NHOEN! Joshua entering the promised land is a mere shadow of the new creation of God entering the NHOEN! Only the Father knows the time because only Abba knows when each person will be open and ripe to receive the Fire and Spirit of God! Have you made yourself ready?
On the Day, the Fire of God burns to leave neither root or branch of anything that is not of God in us. The Fire removes the seven demons and seven deadly sins we picked up from being conditioned as a human being. The Spirit fills us up with the likeness of the ascended Jesus: filled with all the fullness of God, possessed fully by the Holy Spirit and the seven spirits from the throne of God. The seven spirits are: the Spirit of the Lord, Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel/Revelation, Might/Power, Knowledge of the Lord, and Fear of the Lord (fear only God, nothing else, and there is nothing to fear!). The one Spirit of CJ and Abba is all the fullness of God!
“Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest remains, let us fear lest any of you be judged to have failed to reach it…For we who have believed enter that Rest” Hebrews 4:1
One step process: JUST BELIEVE JESUS! Simple! Quit judging and believing by what you see in the physical realm; believe Jesus that the Spirit and Fire will come to all who believe and wait for it, receive it, be filled with all the fullness of God, become like CJ, and then hear, listen, act and go about doing good, healing, delivering, setting free and spread the Light, Love, Joy, and Peace of God everywhere you go! Only unbelief can keep you from receiving the full inheritance! Unbelief is grumbling, complaining, doubting, wavering, mistrust, hearing the good news and rejecting it, or hardness of heart from an unbelieving heart. Evil is an unbelieving, hard heart according to Hebrews 3:12-15.
Today is the day of the Lord! The Day is always “Today” the day you get a chance to believe and receive!
“They shall be mine…my special possession on the day when I act, and I will spare them…then once more you shall distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve him. 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…so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who fear my name the sun of righteousness will RISE, with healing in its wings” Malachi 3:17 – 4:6
Today is the day! Today is another opportunity to become one of the new creation after the likeness of CJ! God is now! God is here now! Heaven is on earth now! CJ changed everything so everything in you could change! Everyone is invited to the wedding feast! The Spirit and Bride say, “Come!” Enter into the NHOEN through the narrow gate of CJ and receive Rest! Receive the full inheritance! Receive all the fullness of God through the Fire and Spirit of God! Let the fire burn away all the dross, chaff, tares, weeds, evil, darkness, hardness, close-mindedness, stiff necks, disease, rigidity, tension, stress, wrong beliefs and ideas, and wrong identity. Let the Spirit of God fill you with the anointing of CJ, making you like Christ, making you look like your Abba Father, making you look like a Bride!
The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead is now available to raise all who believe! Believe and receive! Be raised! Be resurrected and ascended! Be filled with the Fire to remove all that is false; be filled with the Holy Spirit to be filled with all that is True! Come as you are! Be filled with the Spirit of God to receive the seven spirits from the throne of God, the full inheritance of a co-heir with CJ: full authority, power, dominion, keys to the kingdom, and glory with Christ your new brother and best friend! CJ, I love you!!!!!!! God loves you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Make us like you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
