The way that SEEMS right, leads to destruction. Religion SEEMS right yet the written code KILLS, but the Spirit gives life! (2 Cor 3:6) The Spirit of the living God writes the Word on our heart and rightly relates us to God our Father by making His Word flesh in us. We become one flesh and one Spirit with God; the two become one new creation in Christ!
The Way of Christ is the Way of Love, Light, Holy Spirit upon AND in you, making the Word flesh in you! “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my Word remains forever!” “Christ remains forever!” The internal Christ never passes away; only the exterior changes! “Truly, truly, I say to you, if any one keeps my Word, he will never see death” (John 8:51). You are NOT YOUR BODY, you are spirit and soul living in a body. When Christ is received within you through the POWER of the Holy Spirit and fire baptism, you become sanctified and glorified spirit and soul married/yoked to Christ living in the new temple!
“If you continue IN MY WORD you are truly my disciples and you will know the TRUTH [Jesus is Truth] and the TRUTH will make you free” (John 8:31-32). “The Son sets you free from bondage to sin and death for the slave does not continue forever; the son continues forever. You are free in the Son UNLESS “my Word finds no place in you” (John 8:34-37). “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…in Him is Life, and the Life is the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness NEVER overcomes the Light…the TRUE LIGHT that enlightens every man came into the world…all who RECEIVE HIM, believe in His Name/nature, He gives POWER to become children of God, BORN OF GOD. The Word became flesh and dwells in us (Holy Spirit within), full of grace and truth and we behold his glory…and from His fullness we ALL RECEIVE grace upon grace” (John 1:1-16)
When CHRIST COMES TO LIVE IN YOUR BODY, you are BRIDES flowing with the Spirit river from the throne, bright as crystal (Revelation 22:1), the Spirit and Bride within you, as you TAKE the water of life without price! (Rev 22:17)
“If you cannot bear to hear the Word you are of your father the devil…there is no truth in him. When he lies he speaks according to his nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies” John 8:43-47
Jesus said, “I do know God and I keep His Word” (John 8:55). Resurrected Jesus breathed on them and said, “Receive my Holy Spirit” (John 20:22) and said “And behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you; but stay until you are CLOTHED with power from on high” (Luke 24:49). God pours his Spirit upon all flesh…and makes KNOWN to you THE WAY OF LIFE; and makes you FULL OF GLADNESS WITH HIS PRESENCE (Acts 2:17, 28)!
God sends his messenger of Spirit and fire LIKE “a refiner’s fire and like fuller’s soap” (Malachi 3:1-3) until we yield our entire living body (Romans 12:1) to be taken over, swept clean AND OCCUPIED fully by the Holy Spirit of God! “The day comes burning like an oven…the fire burns all that is not Christ in you, leaving neither root nor branch [of satan’s tree of the knowledge of good and evil in you]. But for those who fear God not man, the sun of righteousness rises with healing in its wings. You go forth leaping with Joy with evil under the soles of your feet!” (Malachi 4:1-3) No one knows the day or hour because only the Father knows when each of his children are ripe for harvest!
They lifted Jesus up as Son of man to be cursed on a tree forever–satan’s tree of the knowledge of good and evil. But God lifted up the Son of God to be an ETERNAL BLESSING and NEW LIFE, Christ in you, his tree of Life in you, in all who COME and receive the Spirit and Bride within! “He who sent me is with me; he has NOT LEFT ME ALONE” (John 8:29). “He whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit…this is the Son of God” (John 1:33-34). The Word made flesh is Christ, a new heaven and new earth that remain forever, and is made manifest in you when the Holy Spirit and fire removes all of Adam, human nature and SIN CONSCIOUSNESS, dissolving and melting the old creation, AND forms Christ in you, divine nature and GOD CONSCIOUSNESS in you: the new creation, born of God, of Spirit! (John 3:3-15; 2 Cor 5:16-18)
The Way of Christ is IN Christ! Come, yoke, learn to BE what God created you to be: his image and likeness, his Word made flesh!
“It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; the Words I have spoken to you are spirit and life” John 6:63
I had an image this morning of an elevator which takes you UP to heavenly places IN CHRIST. When the door opens, good and evil are separated (the elevator doors open in the middle and disappear in the right side (good) and left side (evil)), and you walk through the CENTER (Jesus is the DOOR John 10:7). There is no more good and evil MIXED together nor good or evil separated, for you WALK in the center beyond good and evil, transcendent in Christ AND immanent as Christ in you, beyond the kingdoms of the world, in the spiritual realm of heaven on earth! If you remain in Christ who remains forever, you stay in heavenly places with Christ as you live, move and have your being in Him as you walk in His Light on earth, spreading light into the darkness! Awe! Wonder! Amazement! Lead us in your Way Christ Jesus! Spirit of Truth lead us into all Truth!!!!!!!
