We are three part beings: spirit and soul and body. Our soul consists of three parts: heart and mind and will. When we put on our Lord Jesus the Christ, we put on His Light and Spirit like a coat; God who is Love clothes us and binds everything together in perfect harmony (Colossians 3:14). Christ Spirit rules and reigns in your spirit; Christ’s Peace rules in your heart mind; Christ’s Joy rules in your body; all clothed with Love!
“ABOVE ALL THINGS put on love, which binds EVERYTHING together in perfect harmony” Colossians 3:14 (RSV as always as it was the translation I was reading when the Word opened up, the fire fell and Holy Spirit breathed me and caught me up and started my journey!)
“The Word of God is LIVING and ACTIVE…piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart…opens and lays you bare to the eyes of Him” Hebrews 4:12
Our human spirit is transfigured by His Spirit: from lust to love, greed to generosity, anxiety to ease, rest, and lightness of being; from depression to joy; bitterness to blessing; resentment to encourager; selfish to inspired to edify; self-righteous to His righteousness; kingdom of darkness to Kingdom of God: the Kingdom of His beloved Son! the spiritual Kingdom of a new heaven on earth that will eventually re-form a new earth!
Our human enslaved soul is transformed from a closed, hardened, walled-up heart to the Heart of Christ. Our darkened, futile, base mind is transformed into Christ’s Mind: his wisdom and understanding, the higher thoughts and ways of His Father and God. Our will is transformed into “Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven!”
Our body is reformed, reworked by the Potter into a new vessel, a new container, a new vehicle to carry the Presence of God in the world but not of it! Our new body temple is the habitation of the Father and His Lamb, the eternally new, unbreakable covenant between Father and Son, into which we enter through the Son! “In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you” John 14:20
“May the God of peace himself sanctify you wholly; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, and he will do it” 1 Thessalonians 5:23
We are knit back together by the Love of our Father, body, soul and spirit! We become complete in Christ: the perfection, holiness, righteousness and kingdom of Christ in you, making you a new temple for the habitation of God!
“Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of [religion]. These are ONLY A SHADOW of what is to come, but the SUBSTANCE belongs to Christ…hold fast to the Head, from whom the WHOLE BODY, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is FROM GOD” Colossians 2:16-19
Everything come down FROM GOD into our new temple body! Every good endowment, every perfect gift, the Word and Spirit, the river of water of life to make your body a garden paradise containing the seed of Christ, the Vine of Christ, the tree of Christ: the tree of life so you can grow as a branch, bud, blossom, fruit Christ and share the seeds of Christ’s fruit everywhere you go! Love, peace, joy, kindness, gentleness, goodness, patience, 100% yes and amen faith, self-control, wisdom, understanding, counsel, revelation, might, power, knowledge of God, reverential awe and wonder!
Focus on God, not external chaos, problems, elections, or divisions, but pray IN THE SPIRIT at all times (Eph 6:18) through Christ in you, His kingdom and righteousness in you, His Name above every name in you, His nature in you, His city in you, His Spirit and Bride in you, His river in you connecting heaven and earth in you, and His tree of life in you! His fire burns and consumes everything in you until only Christ remains!!!!!!! His Spirit reforms you in the image and likeness of God from glory to glory, grace to grace!!!!!!!
No one is perfect, even Jesus said only God is good, but perfect life is Christ’s ascended and glorified Life in you! Christ’s perfection and holiness in you is perfect and holy as his Father is perfect and holy! Apart from Christ we can do nothing! All authority and power in heaven and on earth is Christ whom welcomed in you rules and reigns through you to the glory of our Father!!!!!!!
“The heavens are the LORD’s heavens, but the earth he has given to the sons of men [those OF the world are the sons of the synagogue of satan]” Psalm 115:16
Remember in Christ we are in the world but NOT OF IT; we are translated into the kingdom of the Son, the kingdom of heaven on earth in Christ! Christ in you, the hope of glory! Put off the old nature with its practices [religion] and put on the NEW NATURE [John 17:22-23 relationship], which is being renewed in knowledge after the IMAGE OF OUR CREATOR! (Colossians 3:9-15). “With unveiled face [removed by Christ] we behold the glory and are CHANGED into his likeness from glory to glory; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit” 2 Cor 3:18
The Spirit and Bride catch you up and deposit the new Life in you, the water of Life in you, so you can begin to flow with the river on earth as it is in heaven!!!!!!!
“If anyone thirst, come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, ‘out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water.’ This He said about the SPIRIT, which those who believed in Him RECEIVE ever since Jesus was glorified as Christ!!!!!!!” John 7:37-39
Glory, Glory, Glorious! Thank you Father! Let it be done to me according to your Word and Spirit!!!!!!! Spirit and Bride live in me!!!!!!! I take You as my Beloved forever and ever, Amen. Hallelujah! (Revelation 22:17)
