I woke up at 4am and wrote this in my journal in the dark. Amazingly, I could read the writing this afternoon!
We don’t need to be perfect, because Jesus is! Christ in us is his perfection, power, provision and protection in us! His Power is made perfect in our weakness. His Grace is sufficient; his Love extravagant! Thank you Father, for great goodness, grace and glory! Thank you for your GREAT Love for us! We root and ground in Love; we grow up in this Love and grow into the Head of Love, Christ, the tree of life! Then his river of glorified Spirit, living water, washes down through us, cleansing and regenerating us, filling us, and COVERING US with his Light! We are no longer naked!
Jesus finished the work of the cross, ending the nakedness of Adam and clothing us with the new man of heaven! When Jesus placed the blood on the mercy seat, it was done “once and one for all” and he sent us our original covering: his Spirit and the fire of glory light! John baptized for repentance, saying, “Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand” (Repent = metanoia = change your way of thinking to the WAY Jesus thinks!). Jesus baptizes to MAKE US LIKE HIM!!!!!!!
Be clothed by Christ! Be clothed by his Holy Spirit and glory fire light! Be clothed with Christ Light! Arise, shine!!!
“I saw a new heaven and a new earth…Then he showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and the Lamb” Revelation 21:1; Revelation 22:1
“I saw the bride coming down out of heaven from God, having the glory of God, radiant” Rev 21:10-11
“The bride has the glory of God as her light, and the Lamb as her lamp” Revelation 21:23
“Put on the armor of Light…Put on the Lord Jesus Christ” (RSV) “Be clothed with Christ” (NIV and NLT) Romans 13:14
“For as many of you who have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ” Galatians 3:27 (RSV) “clothed with Christ” (NIV)
“It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” Galatians 2:20
Be clothed with Christ, and be filled with Christ! Be clothed with Holy Spirit and fire and be filled with Christ, glory and light! For as many of you have been baptized INTO CHRIST (Holy Spirit and fire), are clothed with Christ! The Holy Spirit and fire baptism’s full effect is a pure, spotless soul (the bride) that unites as one with the Spirit of God! Arise and shine; for your light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!
