The end was from the beginning; the beginning is from the end! We wake up and begin from the end, “It is finished,” “It is done!” “The Spirit and Bride say, ‘Come!’ ” Hear, thirst for what you hear, desire a new heaven and a new earth, and take the water of life without price! If you have ever hit a tennis ball from the sweet spot, it is effortless, the ball goes exactly where you intended and it is a direct shot with speed and finesse! It FEELS good! But more than a feeling, it IS GOOD!!! Same is true for living from the end, the finished work of the cross, living in the sweet spot, the new heaven and new earth where ONLY righteousness dwells; the highest nature possible for human beings, Christ in you; made possible by the work of Jesus on earth that he finished in heaven! We enter into the finished work when we RECEIVE it! When he was lifted up he draws all humans up to HIMSELF so our mind, heart, and will, can be seated in heavenly places while our body temple is on earth. He became perfectly one with his God and Father and SO CAN YOU by receiving his Holy Spirit and fire (Jesus’ glory) to remove, destroy or burn all that is not Christ in you and resurrect all that is Christ in you!
The only place that the end exists from the beginning and the beginning exists from the end is NOW! Now is the sweet spot, a new heaven and a new earth; only NOW is where the beast “is not” (Revelation 17:8, 11). God, our Father IS, was and is to come, from whom we receive grace and peace, ALSO “from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the first-born of the dead and the ruler of kings on earth. To HIM who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and MADE US A KINGDOM, and priests to his God and Father (Rev 1:4-5)! In Revelation 7:17, God wipes away every tear and the shepherd, the Lamb, in the midst of the throne will guide you to springs of living water. This is obviously on earth because there are no cause for tears in heaven; no illnesses to be healed from in heaven. “Then he showed me the river of water of life flowing from the throne of God and the Lamb…and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. There shall be nothing accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it (Rev 22:1-5). God and the Lamb are on the throne in our heart when we wake up and take ourself or things of the world off the throne and invite him to TAKE OVER!
One of the fruits of the Spirit is self-control. Discipline and conquer your mind; take every thought captive as you seek the kingdom and his righteousness. He found me at the end of my personal resources, and the journey began! God, our all-loving Father, gives us everything by giving us His Spirit and glory-fire-light, but we have to work it out in our own life, walk it out, and conquer. When we are led by the Holy Spirit, not our human nature or the world, we become a son of God!
No one can do it for you; a corporate body or institution cannot do it for you; we are born alone and we die alone, but when we KNOW God we are never really alone, but all one with Him! It is funny to me when I eat at a restaurant alone, they will often comment on it or how happy I am and they don’t realize I am never alone! The Holy Spirit is my EVERYTHING: best friend, mentor, accountability partner, help-mate, spouse, comforter in an uncomfortable world, advocate for every issue, counselor for every problem, counsel for every situation, healer for every challenge, teacher of all Jesus taught, my Peace, Joy, Love, divine nature, countenance, ease, grace, rest, inspiration, revelation, wisdom, understanding, fountain of water of life, fire of life, bread of life, door to open heaven, etc., etc.! The only sacrifice we are asked to give is our living body which becomes the temple for God and a dwelling place for the Holy Spirit! Christ in you is the hope of glory now and forever and ever! His Kingdom is now and yet to come in greater and greater glory!
I have seen people transfigure when his glory comes in the room; I have seen myself transfigure when someone told me to go look in a mirror! He is no respecter of persons, has no partiality, no conditions, for he says to ALL, “Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke for I am gentle and humble-hearted and I will give you rest for your souls. Take my yoke for it is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28). Yoke with Jesus! When you initially come to Jesus you are not equally yoked with him but when you receive his Holy Spirit and fire, and let it have ITS FULL EFFECT (James 1:2-8), his Christ can be formed in you and you become the spotless bride, equally yoked, a “marriage made in heaven” that is manifested on earth! We who believe are in various places in the process, but the FREE GIFT was given for all!
Do not lose heart! The apostles suffered greatly from 33 to 70 AD for OUR GLORY (Ephesians 3:13). FOR THIS REASON I bow my knees before the Father, from whom EVERY FAMILY in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might THROUGH HIS SPIRIT in the inner man (our human spirit), and that Christ may DWELL in your hearts through faith (evidence/substance of the unseen); that you, being rooted and grounded IN LOVE, may have the power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, AND TO KNOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST which surpasses knowledge (it is a real experience), that you may be filled with ALL the fullness of God” Ephesians 3:13-19
“For although there may be so-called gods in heaven or on earth — as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords” — yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are ALL things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are ALL things and through whom we exist. However, not all possess this knowledge” 1 Cor 8:5-7 (notice the distinction!)
“Now to him who IS ABLE to keep you from falling (nothing OF this world can) and to present you without blemish before the presence of his glory with rejoicing, to the only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, BEFORE ALL TIME and NOW and FOR EVER. Amen” Jude 1:24
