The foundation, the beginning, the FIRST thing is to seek and find the kingdom of God and his righteousness. Jesus said the kingdom of God is within, not externally as to say, “Lo, there or here it is.” The kingdom within is where righteousness dwells when we give Jesus all that is wrong and all that is “making the dis-peace” (Oswald Chambers) and He gives us His righteousness and rest! The old Adam in us rests in peace, DEAD, while the Christ in us is alive, active, living, moving, breathing, and is our new being!!!!!!! Yes Lord!!!!!!!
“Seek the LORD and his strength, seek HIS PRESENCE continually!” (1 Chronicles 16:11). After Jesus died, resurrected, ascended and was glorified by the Father, and SENT his Spirit to live with and in us FOREVER, his Presence (manifest glory) is in those who believe by grace through faith. Before Jesus, “The Spirit of the LORD took possession of Gideon” (Judges 6:34). Before Christ, possession by the Holy Spirit was temporary, but after the Holy Spirit came upon and remained on Jesus, the SAME anointing is available for God’s elect to fully possess us; no part in us without Christ. Many are called but few choose The Way (Christ in you); most take the wide, “easy” road of religion or intellectualism or self-righteousness that leads to destruction (the way of Adam; the way that seems right to a man).
Jesus says, “Come to Me, yoke with Me, learn from Me, and I will give you rest for your soul” Matthew 11:28
When you come to Him and He comes to you to live with you, you are COMPLETE in Him! Your new life as a new creation, born of God through the Spirit of God, WILL BE attacked from the outside. Circumstances will arise that seem to negate or upset the “completeness of the life in God…absolutely COMPLETE in Him” (Oswald Chambers) We just come to Christ Jesus each time and ask Him to produce Christ-consciousness in us again UNTIL we learn to abide in Him. We face every physical appearance of being separate from Christ in God by turning to Christ at once and ask Him to establish rest. “NEVER allow anything to remain which is making the dis-peace. Take every element of disintegration as something to wrestle against, NOT TO SUFFER. Say–Lord, prove Thy consciousness in me and self-consciousness will go and He will be ALL IN ALL” (OC)
“Anything that disturbs rest in Him must be cured at once…not ignored, but by coming again to Jesus…NEVER allow the dividing up of your life in Christ to remain without facing it…beware of anything that is going to split up your ONENESS WITH HIM and make you SEE YOURSELF separately. Nothing is so important as to KEEP RIGHT SPIRITUALLY” (OC). God sees Christ in you; we need to begin to see ourselves through the eyes of Christ!
“Remove vexation from your mind and put away pain from your body” Ecclesiastes 11:10
“Leave others alone and ask the Lord to give you Christ-consciousness and He will poise you until the COMPLETENESS is absolute” (OC)
Chambers also said that the COMPLETE life is the LIFE OF A CHILD…the child of God IS the will of God. The child of God is RESTFULLY CERTAIN that God always answers prayer! Instead of the self-consciousness of the intellectual adult, the child of God is God-conscious and whenever anything physically appears as “dis-peace” we turn and come to Him and He gives us rest, i.e., Christ-consciousness takes the place of self-consciousness. “Wherever Jesus comes He establishes rest, the REST of the PERFECTION of activity that is never conscious of itself” (OC)
“He never asks us to decide for Him, but to yield to Him–a very different thing” OC
“I can never enter His kingdom as a good man or woman, I can only enter as a pauper [a child]” (OC). We come to Jesus and eat and drink His consciousness, and Christ-consciousness begins to flow out of us like a river, the water of life from the throne! The baptism of Holy Spirit and fire comes at the END OF YOU, to begin Christ in you! (OC)
Christ breaks down the dividing wall between God and you and removes the veil so glory divine can return to your body temple! (Ezekiel 43:1-9; 2 Cor 3:14)
“With unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit” 2 Cor 3:18
“From now on we regard no one from a human point of view…if anyone is IN CHRIST, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come” 2 Cor 5:16-17
God works EVERYTHING for good with those who love him! He FOREKNEW you and PREDESTINED you to be conformed to the image of his Son, to be the FIRST-BORN among many brethren. He predestined, called, justified and GLORIFIED you in Christ! (Romans 8:28-30) Jesus said to the Father, “The glory you gave 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, so the world will see that they are WITH ME WHERE I AM, to behold my glory you gave me before the foundation of the world. The LOVE of Christ is made KNOWN beyond knowledge, experientially, so we can be filled with all the fullness of God! (John 17:22-23; Ephesians 2:6; 3:19)
The Heart of God comes to live in your sanctified heart. The mind of the Spirit is in the redeemed, sanctified heart! The finite human mind cannot understand God; the heart containing the mind of the Spirit of God has Wisdom and Understanding, Counsel, Revelation and Power, direct Knowledge of God through Christ in you, and Reverential Awe and Wonder as the Spirit of the Lord rests upon and is within you!!!!!!! “My Delight is in you” when His consciousness is married to yours, the two become one!!!!!!! The result is FULLNESS OF JOY!!!!!!!
