History repeats itself
until we wake up and recognize the beginning from the end!
When Jesus came to earth to FULFILL both the law and prophesy, he said, “Time is fulfilled”
Jesus is BOTH the beginning and the end; the Alpha AND the Omega. In Christ, time is also fulfilled for you and you can DIE with Christ to the endless cycles of suffering and repetition of history, public and personal, the ups and downs, highs and lows, left and right AND the unholy trinity of victim, persecutor, scapegoat AND the unholy trinity of me, myself and I…
the gate is narrow and few find it,
but it is found in Christ!
“It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the LIFE I NOW LIVE in the flesh I live by faith IN THE SON OF GOD” Galatians 2:20
When Christ lives in you, his righteousness is in you, his kingdom is in you, his HOLY Spirit is in you, his RIVER is in you, his fire of glory is in you, his Presence in you, the Love of the Father is in you, and the Light of God is in you! The FRUIT is the spiritual fruit of love, peace, joy, goodness, gentleness, kindness, patience, self-control, faithfulness, wisdom, power, and righteousness! The twelve fruits of the tree of life! and the leaves for HEALING! (Revelation 22:1-2)
Hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3-4), the kingdom goes from being at hand, to within (Christ, our Life, appears)! The external old covenant is replaced with the eternal NEW covenant between the Son of man and God, between the Lamb and God, between the Christ and His Father! When we RECEIVE the glory of Christ Jesus, we become perfectly one with His Father! (John 17:1-26) PRICELESS! “Take the water of life without price!” “It is done!” “Behold, I make ALL things new!” “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ and he shall reign forever and ever” “The Spirit and Bride say, ‘Come!’
Take AND partake of Christ’s divine nature and life!!!!!!!
Jesus said, “BUT I TELL YOU that Elijah has ALREADY COME, and they did not know him…then the disciples UNDERSTOOD that he was speaking of John the Baptist” Matthew 17:12-13
He turned the heart of our Father to us and our hearts to the Heart of God! (Malachi 4:1-6) Jesus finished HIS WORK and he sends us HIS Spirit and fire baptism to burn satan’s tree of the knowledge of good and evil growing in us, totally CONSUMING it, and grows UP Christ’s tree of life in us! His Vine in us connecting heaven and earth IN US! His pillar in us! His fire and glory IN US! His eternal KINGDOM in us! His WORD made flesh in us!
“Truly I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom” Matthew 16:27-28
“The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed; nor will they say, ‘Lo, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you and within you” Luke 17:20-21
Jesus says, “Come to Me! find rest for your soul (mind, heart, will), deny yourself [Adam, inheritance of Adam, sin and death], yoke with Me (LAST ADAM), learn from Me, take up the finished work of the cross, My burden is ease and LIGHT. Drink of Me! Take My river of water of life! Receive My NEW THING: Christ in you is both Wisdom and Power! Follow Me to our Father who will give you the robe of salvation/righteousness, the ring of sonship and ring of betrothal to His Son, our Bridegroom, and the equipment of the gospel of peace on our FEET to DEFEAT the enemy in the world; ashes under our feet when the holy fire comes upon you and BURNS UP, consumes, all that is antiChrist in you root to branch, and forms Christ in you, the Son-beyond-the-sun of righteousness RISES UP within you with healing in its wings making you whole, complete, and lacking nothing. We celebrate the feast with our Abba Father! and we go leaping with Joy in the Holy Spirit in peace and righteousness in the kingdom heaven on earth!
Only Christ Jesus can present you before his Father, the Presence of God, without spot or wrinkle and keep you from falling! Do not gain the whole world and lose your soul! “For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him with the Son of man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of his Father and of the holy angels. But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God” Luke 9:23-27. “For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life saves it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of man also be ashamed, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. ‘TRULY, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they SEE that the kingdom of God has come WITH POWER’” Mark 8:34-9:1
Every generation since Jesus in the flesh has had those who SEE and EXPERIENCE the coming. It is possible FOR ALL NOW; God is no respecter of persons; what he does for one he will do FOR ALL! Jesus died, resurrected, ascended and was glorified FOR ALL! His second coming to individuals will some day be a second coming for the corporate BODY of Christ!
“Grace is given to each of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift…he gives GIFTS to humans…that he might FILL ALL THINGS…build up the body of Christ, until we ALL attain to the UNITY of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the stature of the FULLNESS OF CHRIST…no longer children, tossed about by every WIND of doctrine, by the CUNNING OF MEN, by their CRAFTINESS in DECEITFUL WILES. Rather, speaking the TRUTH in LOVE, we are to GROW UP in EVERY WAY INTO HIM who is the HEAD, INTO CHRIST, from whom the WHOLE BODY…makes bodily growth and UPBUILDS ITSELF in Love…LEARN CHRIST…be TAUGHT IN HIM, as the TRUTH IS IN JESUS. Put off your old nature…your former manner of life…corrupt through deceitful lusts, and BE RENEWED in the spirit of your minds, and put on the NEW NATURE, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness” Ephesians 4:7-24
Grace and glory are given to us in Christ, the help of the Spirit of Christ Jesus, changing us into His likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord WHO IS THE SPIRIT! (2 Cor 3:18)
Do not grieve the Holy Spirit!
In the beginning, the Holy Spirit hovered, brooded over the formless, void earth (Genesis 1:2). In the end, the Holy Spirit says, “Come…take!” (Revelation 22:17) We BEGIN where He ended! You begin the New Life of Christ in you, from the end of YOU, the beginning of Christ in you!!!!!!!
Awake to everlasting life with Christ in God! Awake and receive Christ’s Light! Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever…how long until the end of these WONDERS? “when the shattering of the holy people comes to an end all these things will be accomplished” Those who are wise shall understand. Many shall purify, refine and be made white as snow IN CHRIST and REST in Him! (Daniel ch 11-12) Strive only to enter His Rest! (Hebrews 4:11) Jesus says, “Abide in Me and I in you” “I am the Vine, you are the branches” “If my Word abides in you, you are a new heaven and new earth that remains forever!” “Heaven and earth will pass away, but MY WORD remains forever!”
Come out of the world systems lest you take part in her sins and share in her plagues! “We have to get rid of the plague of the spirit of the religious age in which we live…the central thing about the kingdom of Christ Jesus is a personal relationship to Himself, not public usefulness to men…get rooted and grounded in God on the unpractical line [spiritual], and you will remain true to Him whatever happens” (Oswald Chambers). The end of the spirit of the religious age is the beginning of the kingdom age! Let it begin in me!
“You are NOT IN THE FLESH, you are IN THE SPIRIT, if IN FACT the Spirit of God dwells IN YOU. Any one who does not have the SPIRIT of Christ does not belong to Him…if the Spirit that raised Christ dwells in you, he will give LIFE to your mortal body ALSO through His Spirit who dwells in you” Romans 8:9-30
Spirit trumps physical facts to transform the facts to His Spirit and Life in you!!!!!!! AWED into WONDER!!!!!!! Wed to Him!!!!!!! I am with Him ^
