Is it any wonder the world is messed up? Jesus came to the earth BECAUSE the world was messed up! Good News: he took the mess and gave us his way, truth and life: all good, all love, all light, all HOLY Spirit with no opposites!
Jesus is the way to the Father, the open Door to heaven on earth in God’s new temple: our bodies that we give as a living sacrifice. Jesus ENDED burned sacrifices, human, animal or vegetative (food, tobacco, grains, etc.) ONCE and FOR ALL with the FINISHED work of the cross! Now all we give is our LIVING BODY so it can be transformed, transfigured and transmuted from the dominion of darkness to the kingdom of God’s beloved Son: the kingdom of heaven on earth in the new creation’s body!
Our soul that was SO MESSED UP, manifested or expressed outwardly as a MESSED UP WORLD, is purified, refined and made white as snow in the blood of the Lamb; our soul yokes, joins, marries with the pure Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ making us one, and in being one with Jesus we receive the glory he received from his Father and we become perfectly one with our Father WITH CHRIST IN GOD! “We are hidden with Christ in God” Colossians 3:3! Adam’s nature is dead in Christ, our soul is pure in Christ, our nature made divine; our spirit made one with Holy Spirit in Christ! When we invite, welcome, and receive Christ in us, we go from immature children of God (God is our external provider and protector), to sons of God led by the Spirit (God is WITH US), to spotless brides (God is IN US), the two become one with Christ IN GOD, when we allow Jesus to keep us from falling and present us without blemish before the presence of his glory with rejoicing (Jude 1:24)!
“Every good endowment and every perfect gift COMES DOWN from the Father of lights without variation or shadow of change” James 1:17 Become a FIRST FRUIT with Christ!
Put to death the world, the old human nature and its practices IN YOU by asking for the Holy Spirit and fire baptism! Let all that is earthly in you BURN! (2 Peter 3:4-14) Put ON the new nature which is continuously renewed in knowledge after the IMAGE of our Creator. HERE there cannot be Greek or Jew, (Christian or Muslim or Buddhist or Hindu or Jew), circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free man, BUT CHRIST IS ALL, AND IN ALL” Colossians 3:5-11
Stop wishing for WORLD peace; there is NO SUCH THING! There will always be poverty, strife, climate change and terror in the world, but his Holy Spirit and fire will draw you up with him so you are no longer of the world! Ask Jesus to take you from the dominion of darkness to the kingdom of God; die with Jesus, resurrect with Christ Jesus and ascend with our Lord Jesus Christ to be seated with him in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:4-10). Be clay and let our Potter use his MASTER workmanship to fashion you in HIS image and likeness! You go from flesh and blood to Christ image and likeness incarnated, embodiment of his Holy Spirit, with the blood of the Lamb!!! We become what we behold; behold the Lamb of God, the glory, the Christ, the Son, the Light, the Love, the Holy Spirit!!!!!!!! “As he is, so we are in the world” 1 John 4:17!
“Christ is our peace, who has made us BOTH one, and has broken down the dividing wall…that he might create IN HIMSELF one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and reconcile us BOTH to God IN ONE BODY through the cross, thereby bringing the hostility to an end…through him WE BOTH HAVE ACCESS IN ONE SPIRIT to the Father…we are joined TOGETHER and GROW INTO A HOLY TEMPLE IN THE LORD; in whom you also are BUILT INTO IT for a DWELLING PLACE OF GOD IN THE SPIRIT” Ephesians 2:14-22. “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and God’s Spirit dwells in you?” 1 Cor 3:16
There is ONLY peace in Christ; yoke to him and you have access to the Father and become his dwelling place! Be hid with Christ in God!!! Perpetual Wonder!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Therefore, KNOWING the truth, the truth sets us free! For freedom Christ has set you free!! If the Son sets you free, you are free indeed!!!
Therefore, every morning, we ARISE and GO, knowing that our Father and his Lamb are in us and their Spirit is WITH AND IN US! We go, not knowing where, but complete TRUST in God, revealing himself wherever we go! We trust and know it will be amazing, miraculous, with great awe and wonder; we expect miracles!!!!!!!! We live in perpetual wonder because no matter where we go, God can and will reveal himself, and his power and presence will manifest, and his Spirit will flow through us like a river of living water to help, comfort, heal, deliver and set free the lowest and hurting, the sick or lonely, the desperate and in despair of life, the ill and afflicted, the infirmed with wounded souls, the physical, mental, emotional and physically challenged. Awake, resurrected life, knowing Christ’s pure Spirit is with and in us, is a life of perpetual wonder, never wondering “where is God” but letting him reveal himself in and through you! We are the host of his holy Presence with Christ in us!!! Awe! Wonder!!!
I do not know, but GOD KNOWS, and I trust that he lives inside me and wherever I go, he goes with me to bless,comfort, encourage, and lift spirits! “I will never leave nor forsake you” TRUST THAT! “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” “I will not leave you desolate, I WILL COME TO YOU” “My Father and I will make OUR HOME IN YOU” Perpetual Wonder!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“Glorifying God…be seized with amazement…glorify God and be filled with AWE, saying, ‘We have seen strange things today.” Luke 5:25-26
Live in perpetual awe and wonder! Know the Love of Christ beyond knowledge and watch as “strange things” begin to happen wherever you go! Our job is to STAY AWAKE AND ALERT to what God is doing and saying!!! Perpetual Wonder!!!
“No one says, ‘the old is good’ after drinking the new wine” (Luke 5:39 paraphrase)! “No one puts an old patch on a new garment; no one puts new wine into an old wineskin for it is destroyed. But NEW WINE must be put into FRESH wineskins” Luke 5:36-39! Jesus is talking about the BRIDEGROOM; when you internally yoke with the bridegroom, the two become one spiritually and your body is made a NEW holy temple, a host for the Presence and Power of God! Stop yoking with the world and yoke with our Lord Jesus Christ and live in perpetual awe and wonder as your life becomes a watered-garden paradise eating of the tree of life and sharing the food and drink of Christ’s twelve kinds of season-less fruit and leaves for healing! (love, peace, joy, kindness, goodness, gentleness, patience, faithfulness, self-control, wisdom, power, and glory are likely the twelve Christ fruits!) “To him who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God” Rev 2:7
“The glory of God is our light, and our lamp is the Lamb” Revelation 21:23! Keep your lamp FULL OF OIL, the Holy Spirit, and watch the river of water of life stream out of you when there is a need around you!! Perpetual Wonder!!!! Open your mouth and praise God for his amazing Goodness! Open you mouth and let the Holy Spirit fill it!! Open your mouth and let your soul hear the Good News!!! Open your mouth and sing the NEW SONG!!!! Open your mouth and let God’s Word bless all who hear, ignite faith, fan the flames of hearts, and satisfy with his water of life!!!!! Live in perpetual awe and wonder!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. He who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I myself conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne” Rev 3:20-23
We become what we behold! Perpetual Wonder!!!
