Simply put, Jesus asked us to come to him and YOKE! That means you are NEVER alone ever again! But not only that, you are yoked to PERFECTION, yes perfection, something the world can never give you. You toil, labor, strain, effort, work hard, educate yourself with the highest human wisdom, seek to make yourself the best you you can be in whatever you find valuable in the world: business, education, government, economics, entertainment, family, or religion. You could read thousands of books on the subject, or if you focus on self improvement you may read a thousand self-help books, or go seek professional coaching or counseling or experts in the field of success or happiness, BUT simply the HIGHEST and BEST is to simply yoke with Jesus and find TRUE JOY that is beyond circumstances!
No yoke! Big problem! Because whether you know it or not, you are yoked to spirits of the world ruled by the god of this world or yoked to religious spirits which is worse because you THINK you are holy or pious or religious. “You say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing; not knowing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked” Rev 3:17. You are attached to things of the world and you identify with things of the world. World religions are things of the world and Jesus said, “Come to Me and yoke with Me” and “In the world you will have tribulation, but IN ME you will have peace” Jesus is NOT OF THIS WORLD and when you come to him and yoke you are no longer of this world but of the kingdom of the Beloved Son, the highest spiritual dimension on earth.
BUT YOU MUST CONQUER your attachment to the world and your identification with the things of the world! You may work for noble causes or social justice or poverty or climate change; you may even be “working” at being religious or/and spiritual or “serving” your god. You may even say you are doing the work of Jesus BUT if you have never come to the Living Presence of our Lord Jesus Christ and yoke with him, you are WORKING on you own no matter if you SAY you are a part of a religion or church (external building or denomination or world religion). Jesus said you may search the scriptures or know every precept, doctrine, or theological concept of your religion; you might know all 613 laws, ten commandments, follow the rule of law, and be a religious scholar, but if you do not come to him and yoke, you are a loose cannon (or canon!), a lone wolf even in the midst of a congregation, church, synagogue, mosque, temple, or religion.
“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” Revelation 3:20-21
Narrow is the gate and few find it! A whole congregation cannot go through the gate corporately, you must first individually HEAR THE KNOCK OF JESUS. To hear Jesus you must be one of his followers (my sheep hear my voice). To become intimate with Jesus you need to SPEND TIME WITH HIM ALONE. When you “eat with him and he with you” it is intimacy so you can begin to KNOW Jesus and he KNOW you. You spend time with him in secret and our Father rewards you in public! Your personal time with Jesus, day by day, moment by moment yoked with him culminates in corporate worship where you come together to Thank, Praise, Honor and ADORE the One you are yoked to and our Father who sent him to earth to TRANSFORM everything of the world if you LET HIM!
Lastly, YOU MUST CONQUER to be lifted up. You conquer your attachment to the world, yourself and others and you conquer your identification with the world, to yourself, to others, and YOKE WITH ASCENDED JESUS and identify WITH ASCENDED JESUS THE CHRIST OF GOD! Seek FIRST the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and ALL THINGS ARE GIVEN TO YOU! New Identity! New Name! New Nature! New Life! New Creation!
“Come to Me and I will give you rest. TAKE MY YOKE upon you, and LEARN FROM ME; for I am gentle and humble, and you will FIND REST for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” Matthew 11:28-30
We strive only to enter ASCENDED JESUS’ REST! Restful Increase! Effortless effort led by the Holy Spirit! We seek FIRST the kingdom of heaven on earth and HIS righteousness and ALL things are given to us! JESUS IS NOT ON THE CROSS; all the curses and sin and death and the powers and principalities of darkness and evil are on the cross! THEY ARE DISARMED and nailed to the cross and only a human being (we are made in the image and likeness of God) can take them off and give them authority or a host body by agreeing with them instead of our Father. As you think in your heart, so you are. It is done unto as you believe; if you believe in your heart that you are yoked to the Son of God in your body, soul and spirit, so you are! Your mind yoked with Christ in your spiritual heart is powerful and you can use HIS POWER (dunamis) with HIS AUTHORITY (exousia) so you do not come under the wrath of God but live in his Kindness, Mercy, Goodness, Grace, and Glory!
Jesus, the Christ of God, the Son of God, is above the highest heavens on the throne with his God and Father, OUR God and Father! We YOKE with ascended Christ by faith through grace and WE ARE LIFTED WITH HIM TO THE PLACE HE PREPARED FOR US: IN HIMSELF!!!!!!! The mystery hidden for ages and generations WAS REVEALED to Paul and to ALL in Revelation (it is not Revelations) It is the revealing of Lord Jesus Christ IN YOUR BODY when you yoke with him and seek first his kingdom within you and his righteousness in you when you KNOW Christ is IN YOU as you are IN CHRIST! When you conquer the fallen human mind and nature in you, kick those other spirits OUT that bring the last seven plagues and send them BACK TO THE CROSS so Christ can be revealed in YOU: His seven spirits from the throne ruling and reigning in your body temple making you holy, perfect, complete, and lacking nothing by having everything of Christ in you!
“In that day you will KNOW that I am in my Father and you are in me and I am in you” John 14:20
This is my life verse because it takes a lifetime to KNOW because there is always MORE! There is endless AWE and WONDER and AMAZEMENT and ASTONISHMENT and SURPRISE and unspeakable JOY! “O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God!…for from him and through him and to him are ALL things. To him be the glory for ever. Amen” Romans 11:33
When we YOKE with the ascended Christ; yoke with EASE; yoke with LIGHT that is no part dark, our soul can rest so we can be led by his Holy Spirit! He alone is trustworthy and true! When you yoke with Christ, ALL things are made NEW, day by day, and moment by moment! You are never alone; you are in perfect relationship of oneness with our Father of glory through your yoke with the King of glory! “The glory you gave me I give to them that they may be one as we are one…perfectly one” John 17:22-23 GREAT NEWS!
We can do NOTHING apart from Christ!
Yokefellows with ascended Jesus ARE THE CHURCH, the “true yokefellows” Philippians 4:3! What is the fruit of becoming yokefellows with our Lord Jesus the Christ whose Body is the church? JOY IN YOUR BODY, SOUL and SPIRIT! Body sensations of JOY, emotions of JOY in your heart, thoughts of JOY in your mind, a will in union with our Father that brings JOY, and a holy Spirit of JOY in you!!!!!!!
The Song of JOY to the daughter of God (our redeemed soul) from the Son of God, our holy Spirit when yoked with Christ (our spirit man):
“Sing aloud, O daughter; shout! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter! Our Father and his Lamb have taken away the judgments against you, he has cast out your enemies. The Father of glory is in your midst; you shall fear evil NO MORE. On that day it shall be said to you: ‘Do not fear, let not your hands grow weak.’ The King of glory is in your midst, a warrior who gives VICTORY; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in HIS LOVE; he will exult over you with loud singing as on a day of festival. ‘I will remove disaster from you, so that you will not bear reproach. Behold, at that time I will deal with ALL your oppressors. And I will heal the lame and gather the outcast, and I will change your shame into praise and renown in all the earth. At that time I will bring you home (the place he prepared for you in Himself), at the time when I gather you together; yea, I will make you renowned and praised among the people of the EARTH, when I restore your fortunes before your eyes,’ says our Father.” Zephaniah 3:14-20
Yoke with his JOY from the finished work of the cross!
Now is the time; today is the DAY for you to change your mind and TURN. Time is fulfilled! The kingdom of God is at hand! Repent and Yoke with Christ, he is the Kingdom of heaven on earth and he is our righteousness in God! You can rest easy and be in JOY, as he is the perfection, holiness, righteousness, completeness, unlimited, infinite potential of all things good, true, right and beautiful! Led by his Spirit you can enter and live in a NHONE, in the Awareness or Beingness of the Highest and Best in Christ, in Himself, his Christ Spirit in you! Yoked or united in Him you WILL conquer; divided from him you fall! Sing with Zephaniah the song of JOY, because after 70 AD you can know you are co-heir with ascended Jesus of EVERYTHING of his Father’s kingdom as a royal son and bride, royal king and priest when you are YOKED WITH CHRIST JESUS!!!!!!! Sweet!!!!!!!
