The antidote for the bondage and lies of the world is to get ALONE with God. Be still and KNOW! If and when Christ is IN YOU you are all one with God now and for ever and ever. We are not saved as a group, through religion, church or doctrines,; we are saved one person at a time as we come to Jesus (was saved) and he reconciles us with his Father (IS saved). Then we WORK out our own salvation with fear and trembling (is to come saved). Salvation is Jesus; salvation was, is, and is to come; the name Jesus means the one who saves; Christ means the anointed one; we are saved and anointed when Christ comes to DWELL IN YOU! The NEW THING!
“Come to me and I will give you rest for your soul” Matthew 11:28. “You search the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life…yet you refuse to come to me that you may have LIFE…I know you do not have the love of God WITHIN YOU…how can you believe who receive glory from one another and do not SEEK THE GLORY that comes from the only God?” John 5:39. “The glory which you have given me I give to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and thou in me, that they may become perfectly one…I desire that they may be with me where I am to BEHOLD MY GLORY given before the foundation of the world…I will make my name/nature known to them, that our LOVE may be in them, and I in them” John 17:20-26. When we are unveiled by Christ and BEHOLD HIS GLORY we are changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another (2 Cor 3:18)!
“When I am lifted up I will draw you UP” “I will take you to the place IN MYSELF” “In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you” John 14:20. “We will manifest ourself to you, not the world…we will come to you and make our home with you” John 14:21-24. The New Thing! A new spiritual dimension within you: the Kingdom of God!
Seek FIRST the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all things are given to you. The kingdom of God is within and we meet with God alone within in the secret place in our spiritual heart (Matthew 6:6). In the secret place within us we are changed, transformed, transfigured from being a human marked by the beast, 666, to the image and likeness of the Son partaking of his divine nature, sealed with the Holy Spirit, a new creation in Christ! It is relationship with God, his Christ within, that transforms us, not religion or traditions of men. The New Thing!
“And the LORD took me from following the flock” Amos 7:15
Twice in Amos 7:8 and Amos 8:2 God says he will NEVER again pass by Israel. He placed a plumb line that he will no longer cross because the CROSS of Christ finished it; it is done! God’s chosen ones are no longer an external, physical or literal people or land or name. “For he is not a real Jew who is one outwardly, nor is true circumcision something external or physical. He is a Jew who is one INWARDLY, and real circumcision is a matter of the heart, spiritual and NOT LITERAL; his praise is not from men but from God” Romans 2:28-29. In Christ there is no more external distinctions, neither Jew nor Gentile, neither male nor female, but we are all one in Christ…Abraham’s offspring and heirs according to the promise! (Galatians 3:28-29) All the promises of God are given to us with Christ IN US: sonship, the glory, the covenants, the law/teaching, the worship, and the promises; not through physical, literal descendants of Abraham but through CHRIST IN US! (Romans 9:4-33) “Those who were not my people I will call ‘my people’ and her who was not beloved I will call ‘my beloved’ and they will be called ‘sons of the living God’ ” Romans 9:25-26.
In Christ, God is “my Husband” and “our Father.” Christ in you is both the Spirit and the Bride in you! You become the new city of God when the Spirit and Bride are in you, Christ in you, Wisdom and Power in you!
Without the ROCK (not the pebble Peter), all stumble and fall. All who build on the foundation of the ROCK, Christ ALONE, grow into a holy body temple flowing with the River of water of life: the Holy Spirit and fire river. The seed of Christ planted in you before the foundation of the world, grows into a Vine connecting the new heaven with the new earth within you, and the tree of life on either side of the Spirit River that flows in your innermost spirit man at your core or center! (Revelation 21-22)
Behold, I make all things NEW! Jesus is the NEW THING! Christ IN YOU is the hope of glory. Faith is evidence of the unseen and substance of hope. Christ in you is the substance of glory by faith! “My God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory IN CHRIST Jesus” Philippians 4:19. The new thing is God IN YOU, his Son in you, his Spirit in you, his anointing (Christ) in you!
“There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch will grow out of his roots. And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. And his delight shall be in the fear of the LORD. He shall not judge by what his eyes see or decide by what his ears hear; but with RIGHTEOUSNESS and decide with equity…use his mouth and breath as his only weapon. Righteousness is at his waist and faithfulness over his loins. The wolf shall dwell with the lamb…and a little child shall lead them…they shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be FULL of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” Isaiah 11:1-9
The root is Jesus; it is holy and grows only holy, perfect branches. We are grafted onto Jesus’ tree of life, his Vine connecting the new earth with the new heaven in our spirit man, our innermost being, where Truth comes! Truth is not knowledge, Christ is Truth and Christ in you is Truth in you that brings you to resurrected LIFE! The River from the throne pours in your spirit man and the Spirit River of light heals, delivers and sets you free from the inside out!
It is finished and it is done; now finish it in you! “The dwelling of God is with us. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with men… for the former things have passed away…to the thirsty I will give from the fountain of the water of life without payment. He who conquers shall have this heritage and I will be his God and he shall be my son. But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, as for murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their lot shall be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death” Revelation 21:1-8
Take COURAGE! It takes courage to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, facing your demons with Jesus, with God working in you you bind and loose, forgive and not retain any sin. When the light of God has worked from the inside out, Christ’s glory rises upon you from the inside out, from the Spirit river flowing in your core! Those who have been alone with God, done their inside work WITH JESUS begin to arise and shine!
For the earth will be filled with the KNOWLEDGE of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14). Knowing Christ within is beyond knowledge and fills us with all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:19). Know the truth and the truth will set you free. In that day no one will teach you because ALL will KNOW God; we have to have our individual DAY of Christ now and in that day yet to come ALL will know! “This is the covenant…I will put my laws/teaching into their minds, and write them on their heart and I will be their God. And they shall not teach every one his fellow or every one his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for all shall KNOW ME, from the least of them to the greatest. For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more. The new covenant treats the first as obsolete and vanishes (Hebrews 8:10-13 When you KNOW JESUS alone, you know the Father. Jesus is the exact image of our Father and God (Colossians 1:15; John 14:7)
NOW and is to come is the New Thing! He already sent the Messiah, already finished the old! The New Thing is we individually COME to Jesus and he places the Christ in us, the Messiah, the anointing IN US so we can KNOW God personally; pray in secret behind closed doors and he rewards us in public. The public display of praying at the wailing wall, a stone wall, denies the Messiah who writes on the walls of our individual hearts. Debating and searching the scriptures has an APPEARANCE of holiness but they fail to COME TO JESUS; the institutional mother church has an APPEARANCE of piety but they have many idols and make themselves gods and make DEAD people saints, and preach doctrines of men; they kept the scriptures away from the people for centuries and fail to come to JESUS directly, putting a stumbling block between humans and God. “I hate, I despise your feasts, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies…O house of Israel [all false religion/spirituality] you take up Sukkoth your king, and Taiwan your star-god, your images which you made for yourself” Amos 5:21 Having images, knowing ABOUT God is not knowing God, grafted on the Vine of Christ, which makes you a saint! We give our LIVING BODY as true spiritual worship, having an individual, intimate relationship with the King of kings and Lord of lords, the Faithful and True, the Word of God, the Spirit and fire of God, the Righteous One and his holy angels “white and pure” (Revelation 19:11-16)!
The antidote is being in the ONE pillar, one with Christ in God our Father!
