I thought it was impossible to exceed yesterday’s post. The simplicity and POWER of the word, name, nature, pure being of JESUS is beyond words…
but I was reminded this morning of Jesus’ words,
“I will not leave you desolate; I will come to you…the world will not see me but you will see me; because I live, you will live also…she who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love you and manifest myself to you…we will come to you and make our Home with you…the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you ALL things…I will come to you…rejoice because I go to the Father; for the Father is greater than I…Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you…When the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into ALL the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. ALL that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you” (John 14:18 to John 16:15).
We are not trying to get to heaven; Jesus is trying to get heaven in us!
To enter the greater works beyond Jesus…receive his Father’s Spirit (John 14:12) receive the baptism John the Baptist said Jesus would give: Spirit and Fire (Matthew 3:11)
To avoid the hour of trial coming upon the whole world…rest in patient endurance in his Father’s Spirit (Rev 2:10) hidden in Christ in God (Colossians 3:3)
The Father’s Spirit in Jesus was the anointing, the sevenfold Spirit: Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Power, Knowledge, Fear of the LORD (delight, reverential awe, fountain of life) and Spirit of the LORD resting (Isaiah 11:2-3)
Jesus says the Father is greater; receive his Spirit and receive ALL of ALL
“Christ is all and in all” Colossians 3:11
Christ is our new nature if our Father’s Spirit inhabits us…
we can do the greater works if his Spirit also rests upon us.
We die in Jesus; we resurrect in Jesus; we ascend in Jesus; we are seated in heavenly places in Jesus. “When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory” Colossians 3:4 “For you have died and your life is hid with Christ in God” Colo 3:3. We put on Christ’s white garment of Light; we put on the new nature renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator; our secular humanist self is dead; our divine nature is alive and well; our being is transformed by the renewal of our mind in Christ; we are conformed to the image of Christ; we behold his face, his Presence, unveiled, which transforms us into Christ’s likeness from one degree of glory to another. “As he is so are we in this world” 1 John 4:17
We conquer and overcome the fallen mind of the world with its worldly mindset and we are granted to eat of the tree of life in the paradise of God, given the crown of life, hidden manna, a white stone (yes), a new name, power over the nations, the morning star, clad in white garments, kept from the hour of trial, and sealed with the name of Jesus’ God, the name of the city of God, new Jerusalem, Jesus’ own new name, and granted to sit with him on his throne as Jesus conquered and sat down with his Father on his throne (Revelation 2:7 – Rev 3:21). We have to continue to remember who we are in Christ in God; we must reconquer and overcome every time our mind falls into a lesser state. We take every though captive; we are mindful, watchful, alert, stay awake and pay attention to our thoughts, feelings and imaginations to keep them in Christ. We examine and test ourselves to make sure we remember our true identity and don’t slip back into the world’s mind or fall prey to religious or elemental spirits.
Jesus overcame the world; we overcome the world in him, Christ in us! The world is in tribulation; in Christ we are in peace (John 16:33). Christ in us is the hope of glory! The Christ that was in Jesus is the Father’s Spirit who makes his Home in our body!
Choose to receive Jesus’ baptism of his Father’s Spirit and Fire and receive a new name!
“Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems; and he has a name inscribed which no one knows but himself” Revelation 19:11-12
God battles while we rest in him! “Faithful and True” is making war on evil; we rest at peace in Him. The world is in tribulation; the bride is at peace in “my Husband” (Hosea 2:16). Our new married name is our name in his new Name!
Whether 70 AD was the fulfillment of all of biblical prophecy or each generation has to go through “times” the only true peace, safety, security, and provision is in Jesus’ Father and God! Be Spirit led and you will not be led astray!
