It is what is inside that matters

heart-flowers2

The heart of the matter is what is in your heart. Dare I say most are masking something, keeping something hidden, keeping up appearances…putting on a persona or personas…

but when we bring it all and lay it at Jesus’ feet…unburden ourselves…take off the clothing we have been wearing that is covered with black tar, stains, torn, worn out, tired, weary, overburdened, too care-ful…the garments of the world that cover sin and falling short of the glory, hidden shame, guilt, regret, anger, rage, victimhood, blame, uncomforted hurts, unmet needs for love, hidden darkness covered over with an appearance of being okay…

we give Him everything… because nothing plus Christ in us is all things good, true and right!

we take His garment of righteousness to be clothed with Christ, clothed with His light, love and Spirit…

we take His river of water of life from the throne to begin to flow with Him…

we partake of his divine nature to begin to be like Him…

we work out what God worked in us: His blood, DNA, heritage, inheritance, redemption, justification, salvation, sanctification, glorification, and the image and likeness of Christ: God’s Will for us!

We HEAR and believe it! We COME and exchange sin and falling short of the glory for His righteousness, kingdom, power and glory! We Drink of Him and strive to work out the salvation that was put in us when we received Jesus into our heart. We TAKE the water of life. We RECEIVE all the fullness of God. We root, ground, grow as we learn from being yoked with Christ (our cornerstone) until we grow into His Head and our spiritual fruit matures…

then we enter His REST on His Vine that continually grows! we are harvested into Joy and Abundant Life as we BE who God created us to be! and we SEE as Christ sees to KNOW and be KNOWN (NHONE)! We let Holy Spirit work through us as we carry the Presence, the glory, the lamp of God in us (the one pillar of fire light) and let it shine through us to the darkness without! We let His glory work through us! We let His river flow through us to make streams in the desert and rivers in the wilderness!

We START where Jesus finished: having died, resurrected, ascended, glorified, and sent us His Spirit! We take the Spirit River: the water of life and run with it!

“‘To you it has been given to KNOW the secrets of the kingdom of God’…The seed is the Word of God…hear the word, receive it with joy…take root…mature fruit…hear the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bring forth fruit with patience…put the Light on a stand…be made manifest…let it come to light. Take heed then how you hear; for to those who have will more be given, and from those who have not, even what they think they have will be taken away…’My mother and brothers are those who hear the word of God and DO IT’ ” Luke 8:9-21

The two most spoken words of Jesus are: “Those who have ears to hear, let them hear” and “You have heard it said, but I SAY…”

Be still and know! Be still and hear as Jesus hears our Father and God! No longer listen to the world and human wisdom or wisdom traditions. Go direct to God through Christ Jesus and receive the Wisdom and Power from Above. Be seated with Christ in heavenly places, in Christ Jesus, blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places as he chose us BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD…God destined us to be his sons through Jesus, His Will, through His grace that he freely bestows on us in the Beloved…the riches of grace he lavishes on us. For he has MADE KNOWN to us all wisdom and insight into the mystery of his will, according to his purpose set forth in Christ to unite ALL things in Him, things in heaven and things on earth…all things are under his feet and he is the Head over all things…the fullness of him who FILLS ALL IN ALL…He made us ALIVE in Christ by grace and RAISED US UP WITH HIM to sit with Him in the heavenly places IN CHRIST (Ephesians 1:3-23; Ephesians 2:1-9)

We are IN Christ with God! When we KNOW the hidden mystery revealed, Christ in you, we let go of what religions have said, what churches have said, what religious leaders have said, what ALL others have said God said…and we listen and HEAR the new things that Jesus says, has said and will continue to say if you have ears to hear and a heart to do what you hear so you can begin to see as Christ sees: a new heaven and a new earth where righteousness dwells!

Jesus said, “You have heard it said, but I say…”

  1. Interesting perspective from Richard Murray:
    “Psssst… want to know what the real spirit of Antichrist “is” and what it “does?”

    “For many deceivers have gone out into the world, they who do not confess Jesus Christ coming in flesh — this is the deceiver and the antichrist.” 2 John 7.

    Simply put, it is any motive/spirit/idea that denies “Jesus Christ coming in the flesh.”

    But hold on. Whose flesh? Let me ask that again. WHOSE flesh?

    The Word Bible Commentary rightly notes that 2 John 7 is a strange Greek grammatical construction which is in the “present continuous tense” (“do not confess Jesus Christ coming in the flesh”) rather than the “perfect tense” (“do not confess Jesus Christ has come in the flesh”). This passage, therefore, is using an awkward grammatical phrase to make a precise and profound point.

    This point is NOT that Anti-Christ denies Jesus will EVER come in any future sense. “This cannot be a reference to the future coming of Jesus, since there is no evidence that a denial of the parousia presented a problem in the early Church generally, or to the readers of John’s letters in particular.” WBC-NT, 2 John 7.

    Then to “what” flesh or “whose” flesh does it refer?

    Here is my proposal. It’s OUR flesh. You, me, us. The Anti-Christ spirit wants to convert you to “Deism,” that icy belief system that says God is a remote presence that leaves the world to pretty much run on its own.

    Deism’s distant God doesn’t speak directly TO us, intervene directly FOR us, or live vibrantly IN us. Anti-Christ doesn’t care if you believe in this “missing in action” God. Anti-Christ wants you to believe Abba is a “dead-beat dad” who never actively supports or provides for His children.

    But what Anti-Christ hates, fears, and wants you to disbelieve is simply THIS: God wants to live INSIDE of your flesh on the most intimate and personal of terms. It’s one thing to believe that Jesus came in HIS flesh for 33 years and then returned to Heaven where He now resides at the right hand of the Father. It’s quite another to believe that Jesus is coming in OUR flesh daily on an ever-expanding level as we devotionally allow.

    Below are the perfect Anti-Christ inoculations. Internalize these Scriptural realities, and we will never become snared in the deistic lies of Anti-Christ. These are confessional realities of the Christian walk. To neglect to confess them by our words and acts is the same as functionally denying them. Communing with the below passages will help posture us way from engaging in such neglect.

    “He who is joined to the Lord is one Spirit WITH Him” (1 Corinthians 6:17).

    “Neither pray I for these alone , but for them also which shall believe on me through their word ; That they all may be one ; as thou , Father , art in me , and I in thee , that they also may be one in us : that the world may believe that thou hast sent me . And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them ; that they may be one , even as we are one : I IN them , and thou in me , that they may be made perfect in one ; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me , and hast loved them , as thou hast loved me .” John 17:20-23.

    “I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, that he may be with you forever, — the Spirit of truth, whom the world can’t receive; for it doesn’t see him, neither knows him. You know him, for he lives WITH you, and be IN you.” John 14:16-17.

    “Christ IN you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27.

    “Don’t you know that you are a temple of God, and that God’s Spirit lives IN you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16.” ~Richard Murray
