New Things! Instead of mixed news, mostly bad, in Christ it is ALL Good News! Jesus said “preach as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near and is at hand, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. Freely you receive, freely give…I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves…do not be anxious about what to say…the Spirit of your Father speaks THROUGH YOU” (Matthew 10:7) This is BEFORE they were born again; how much MORE when we receive the Holy Spirit and fire baptism from glorified Christ Jesus (John 14:12; Luke 3:16)!
The kingdom of God WAS at hand (Mark 1:15). NOW the kingdom, power and glory, on earth as it is in heaven, is possible with Christ in you! BOTH the Word made flesh and the Spirit, the power to make it flesh, are in those who believe and receive Christ beyond knowledge to experiential KNOWING!!!!!!! “The Christ remains FOREVER” John 12:34 “Heaven and earth pass away, but my Word remains forever” Matthew 24:35 “The Spirit of the living God writes the Word on your heart…the written code kills, but the Spirit gives LIFE” 2 Cor 3:2-6
Christ Jesus TRANSFERS you from the dominion of darkness (the world of men) into the KINGDOM of Christ!!!!!!! “When I am lifted up from the earth, will draw ALL men to myself” John 12:32 “I come again and take you TO MYSELF, that where I am you may be also” John 14:3 “I will pray my Father and He will give you another Counselor [Teacher, Guide, Helper, Anointing] to be with you for ever, the Spirit of truth, WHOM THE WORLD CANNOT RECEIVE, because it neither sees him nor knows him; YOU KNOW HIM, for he DWELLS WITH YOU AND IN YOU. I will not leave you desolate [orphaned or widowed]; I WILL COME TO YOU. Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, BUT YOU WILL SEE ME; because I LIVE, YOU WILL LIVE ALSO. In that day you will KNOW that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you…I will MANIFEST MYSELF TO YOU…WE WILL COME TO YOU AND MAKE OUR HOME WITH YOU…I WILL COME TO YOU…rejoice that I go to my Father who is greater than I” John 14:16-28
The Holy Spirit and fire comes DOWN from God. After the fire baptism in you, ONLY CHRIST REMAINS in you, a holy temple for the Holy Spirit! “Do you not KNOW that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have FROM GOD?” 1 Cor 6:19
Do TWO NEW THINGS: Repent and believe! Repent of what you have been thinking, speaking and doing out of MISTAKEN IDENTITY! Change your mind and believe only the GOOD news, the gospel of Christ, HIS KINGDOM and His RIGHTEOUSNESS in you! SEEK FIRST WITHIN AND FIND! Then ONLY BELIEVE ONE NEW THING: Christ in you! EVERYTHING IS MADE NEW when you trade in unbelief for Christ in you! Christ in you is the WAY, the TRUTH, the LIFE of our our Father and HIS Lamb in you! Holy Spirit IN YOU makes you a NEW body temple where God tabernacles, His sanctuary where His Presence dwells, His delight, His glory, His fullness of Joy! Christ in you is the NEW THING! Jesus was the LAST Adam, so it is MORE than time to die with Him, resurrect with Christ and receive His Spirit to live in your body making you a new holy temple. Jesus was the FIRST-BORN of many brethren! Be born anew from above by water and Spirit; born of God TO SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD (John 3:3-16)!
“When you are born again, you are not getting a second chance at being a better human being; you are given your first chance at being a heavenly being. You are not an earthly being trying to live a spiritual life; you are a spirit being in a fleshly body living a heavenly culture in an earthly environment every day. The cross was not your chance for a do-over. It was your first chance to live the life you were created to live.”

“Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also dwells secure…you show me the PATH OF LIFE; in thy presence there is fullness of joy, in they right hand are pleasures forevermore” Psalm 16:9-11
“Believe in him and rejoice with unutterable and exalted joy” 1 Peter 1:8
“We fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen” 2 Cor 4:18 “But God, who is RICH in mercy, out of the GREAT LOVE with which HE LOVES US, even when WE WERE DEAD through our trespasses, MADE US ALIVE WITH CHRIST (by grace you have been saved), and RAISED US UP WITH HIM, and made us sit WITH HIM in the heavenly places WITH CHRIST JESUS” Ephesians 2:4-6
“In the presence of God in whom we believe, He gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist…have no distrust make you waver concerning the promises of God, grow strong in your faith as you give glory to God, FULLY CONVINCED that God is able to do what he has promised” Romans 4:16-21
“Faith is conviction and EVIDENCE of the unseen, assurance and SUBSTANCE of hope” Hebrews 11:1
The hope or SUBSTANCE of faith is the EVIDENCE of CHRIST IN YOU, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:26-27)! Believe and receive! Receive and BE! Receive the glory that Christ Jesus gives you to become perfectly one with His Father and God!(John 17:22-23) to make the presence of Christ manifest! The presence of Christ is the kingdom, power and glory of God!!!!!!!
“Behold, the former things have come to PASS, and new things I now declare” Isaiah 42:9 “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; NOW it springs forth, do you not perceive it?” Isaiah 43:18-19 “From this time forth I make you hear new things, hidden things which you have not known. They are created NOW, not long ago…let your ear be opened” Isaiah 48:6-8
From NOW on no more human view point…in Christ you are a NEW creation; the old has passed away, behold the NEW HAS COME! The old heaven and earth have passed away when the Word in you is made flesh: the new creation, a new name, a new city, a new identity, a new being with both the Spirit and the Bride living within! New EVERY morning!!!! With unveiled face, beholding the glory Jesus gives us, we are CHANGED into his likeness from glory to glory! The sun of righteousness rises in you! The Spirit of Truth within you is greater than the spirit of error in the world! Do not conform to the world; conform to the likeness of the Son! Let Christ Jesus anoint your eyes to see as Christ sees; your eyes full of light means your body will be full of light! “If then your WHOLE BODY is full of light, having no part dark [spotless bride], it is WHOLLY BRIGHT, as when a lamp [the Lamb of God] with its rays gives you light [glory of God]” Luke 11:33-36 !!!!!!! “Let the faithful exalt in glory; let them sing for joy on their couches” Psalm 149:5 !!!!!!!
Lift your eyes! Help comes DOWN; Spirit comes DOWN to live in you; the new identity come DOWN; every good endowment and every perfect gift comes DOWN from the Father of lights! “Let the WORD of Christ dwell IN YOU richly!” Colossians 3:16 “Christ in you…put off the old nature with its practices, and put on the new nature renewed in knowledge IN THE IMAGE OF THE CREATOR…no more distinctions of race, religion, gender…Christ is all, and in all. BE CLOTHED WITH CHRIST” Colossians 1:26-3:12 “Put on the armor of LIGHT…PUT ON THE LORD JESUS THE CHRIST” Romans 13:11, 14
“You know what hour it is, FULL TIME NOW to wake from sleep…the night is FAR GONE, the DAY is at hand” Romans 13:11
“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you LIGHT” Eph 5:14
“Behold, I make ALL things new” Revelation 21:5
“By the RICHES OF HIS GLORY, our Father strengthens us with might through his Spirit in our inner being and CHRIST in your heart…rooted and grounded in love with the POWER to comprehend and KNOW experientially the LOVE of Christ that you may be filled with ALL the fullness of God…His POWER at work IN US…to Him be the glory” Ephesians 3:14-21
DO NOT BE DECEIVED! “The anointing which you RECEIVE from God ABIDES IN YOU, and you have no need that any one should teach you; as HIS ANOINTING teaches you about EVERYTHING, is true, no lie, just as it has taught you, ABIDE IN HIM” 1 John 2:26-27
The Word is the seed of Christ that is planted in your heart (the cornerstone); the Spirit and fire blast it open and starts the growth, rooting into the deep well of Jesus, growing up on His Vine into His Head, our faculties and spiritual senses trained to see as Christ sees, hear as Christ hears and spiritually perceive as Christ; his Mind in our circumcised heart! “I am the Vine, you are the branches” “Abide in me, and I in you!” (John 15:1-11) Christ The Branch (Zechariah 6:12) became the Vine and the Tree of Life that fruits Christ and His Fruit Seed replicates Christ in us! NEW THINGS!
