Let us now leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity!
Be enlightened, not as the world strives or practices, but simply receiving the light of Christ into our innermost being, our spirit man, and letting it permeate and infuse every cell, organ, body system and empty space within, setting up the kingdom of God within! Experience/encounter Christ’s brilliant Light!
“The true Light that enlightens every man/woman came into the world…the world was made through him, yet the world knew him not. He came to his own home, and his own people received him not. But to all who RECEIVE HIM, who believe in his name/nature, (anointed Messiah) he gives POWER to become children of God; born not of blood or the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, BUT BORN OF GOD” John 1:9-13
Taste the heavenly gift! “Taste and see that the Lord is good!” Taste and see the glory light!
Become partakers of the Holy Spirit, the baptism Jesus gives us: Holy Spirit and fire!
Taste the Goodness of the word of God and the powers of the Kingdom Age! The kingdom of God is within! In the old covenant age, God was external to his human creation; Jesus brought the kingdom of heaven to earth to live internally in us! Nothing can separate us from the Love of Christ! “Know the Love and be filled with all the fullness of God” Ephesians 3:19
Stay awake with ascension Jesus, not keep him crucified and in contempt as many have. Drink the rain of the reign of Christ in our hearts; drink of the river of water of life that falls often upon us when we are awake, alert, watchful, paying attention to the things of the Spirit of God! “Awake O sleeper and Christ will give you Light!” The rain of Christ brings forth spiritual fruit in us (useful vegetation) “the leaves of the tree of life are for healing”!
Receive the blessings of God! Receive the inheritance of God our Father as co-heirs with Christ! We who were “not my people” have become God’s beloved people through Christ Jesus! “We are hid with Christ IN GOD” We are grafted branches on the tree of life, and as as we grow up in Christ we can no longer see where the graft took place and we begin to look and act like the Vine! Jesus is the Vine, we are the branches, apart from the Vine we can do nothing and bear mixed fruit of good and evil. But when we know we abide in Christ, and he in us, we bear much fruit, the all good fruit of Christ! Our Father gives only good gifts to his children! Every good endowment and every perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights! (James 1:17)
Believe and Receive as coheirs of the entire Kingdom of God! “We feel SURE of better things that belong to salvation/completion/wholeness/holiness/godliness! Realize the FULL ASSURANCE of hope, the substance of faith! Through faith and patient endurance you inherit the promises! “We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the INNER SHRINE behind the curtain, where Jesus HAS GONE as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest FOREVER after the order of Melchizedek” Hebrews 6:19-20 (Hebrews 6:1-20)
TODAY, now, as the Holy Spirit says, ‘Today, when you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness, not knowing the ways of God and never entering his rest. TAKE CARE, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God…Those who sin, their bodies fall in the wilderness, and they never enter his rest…they were unable to enter because of UNBELIEF” Hebrews 3:7-19
“I believe, help my unbelief!”
Believe what Jesus said and enter his REST! “Today when you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts” (Hebrews 4:1-7) “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if ANY ONE hears my voice and OPENS THE DOOR, I will come into him/her 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). Let us strive to enter his REST! (Hebrews 4:11) Be still and KNOW and hear his Voice!
Receive the true Light! Drink of Christ’s river of water of life, his Holy Spirit and glory fire and become a river of his glory to a dark world and thick darkness of her people (Isaiah 60:2)! “Leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity” (Hebrews 6:1)! “Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory has risen upon you…the Son will rise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you…SEE and be radiant, your heart will thrill and rejoice; because the abundance of the crystal sea will be turned to you, the wealth of the nations will come to you (riches of Christ’s glory!)” Isaiah 60:1-5
“May you be FILLED with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, to lead a life worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work (healing, delivering and setting free/and even greater works because Jesus is seated with his Father on his throne) and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with ALL POWER, according to his GLORIOUS MIGHT, for all endurance and patience WITH JOY, giving thanks to our Father, who has qualified us to SHARE IN THE INHERITANCE OF THE SAINTS IN LIGHT. He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the KINGDOM OF HIS BELOVED SON” Colossians 1:9-14
It is full time to KNOW and MOVE INTO our REAL HOME on earth as it is in heaven: the Kingdom of his beloved Son!!!!
Yoke with Christ Jesus and you share in everything, go everywhere, and be everything he is: first-born from the dead, first-fruits of ascension, royal kings and priests, royal sons and brides in the Kingdom of God our Father through the Son, the Light in us! “You who were once estranged and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has NOW RECONCILED IN HIS BODY OF FLESH by his death, in order to PRESENT YOU holy and blameless and irreproachable before him, provided you CONTINUE in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which HAS BEEN PREACHED to every creature under heaven” Colo 1:18-23.
It is full TIME to enter his Kingdom and begin to LIVE as the NEW CREATION, the NEW LIFE of the Son as sons of God led by the Holy Spirit in the Kingdom of God!!!!!!!
The mystery hidden for ages and generations was MADE MANIFEST…God chose to MAKE KNOWN the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Christ we proclaim, warning [don’t fall away] AND teaching every human in all wisdom, that we may present every human MATURE IN CHRIST! (Colossians 1:26-29)
Therefore, RECEIVE Christ Jesus, the Lord of lords, LIVE IN HIM, rooted and built up IN HIM and established in the faith…abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one makes a prey of you by philosophy and empty deceit according to human traditions, according to elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ. For IN HIM dwells the WHOLE FULLNESS of the Godhead dwelling bodily, and YOU HAVE COME TO FULLNESS OF LIFE IN HIM, who is the HEAD of all rule and authority” Colo 2:6-10
Go from elementary to maturity in Christ and share with Christ as royal co-heirs of the Kingdom of God! Now! Today! It is always now and today in the Kingdom of God!! The past is history, the future a mystery, but NOW is the Presence of God, the manifest presence of glory, in the Kingdom of heaven on earth! “Seek first the kingdom and his righteousness and ALL these things will be given to you!” (Matthew 6:33) Awake and receive Christ’s Light! Be Light! Be a city set on a hill, a beacon of Light, a Light-house, a holy body temple for the habitation of God, sharing the presence of God to all who are lost and have not yet found the Way!
The Way of Christ is the Way of Love, the Way of Light, and the Way of the Spirit of God indwelling in you and I!!!!!!!
