As I read Oswald Chambers words year after year, the God-inspired, Holy Spirit filled words do not change, I change as I GROW in intimate relationship with God and higher wisdom and understanding is revealed! As I read the Word of God, the God-breathed, Living vehicle of Light, Love and Spirit year after year, the Word does not change, but my understanding GROWS, expands, deepens and heightens, revealing new glory realms of amazing awe, wonder, majesty, goodness, grace, inspiration, and DELIGHT!
When we eat the Word and drink the Spirit of Christ, new dimensions open to us! With the help of the Spirit of Christ Jesus, ALL things are possible! New possibilities, new potential, new life opens up to us! Christ Jesus opened the door to heaven to let heaven come to us by the Holy Spirit of God! We have to open the door of our hearts when Jesus comes knocking!
The enemy comes to steal; Jesus comes to give you back everything he stole!
The enemy comes to kill; Jesus comes to give you His Life, and His Life exceedingly abundantly MORE!
The enemy comes to destroy: Jesus comes to comfort, heal, deliver, set free, restore, rebuild, renew, revive, revitalize, rejuvenate, and regenerate Christ in you! Christ Jesus comes to anoint you with His Spirit and holy fire so you can begin to bring His Good News: His kingdom and His righteousness through YOU! The Lamb of God’s blood is permanently and eternally on the mercy seat so you get mercy INSTEAD of judgment. Evil gets judged now and forever; reconciled children of God get mercy, grace and glory now and forever and ever and ever! When we conquer unbelief we get a crown, a robe of righteousness, a garment of salvation, white wedding clothing, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit (Isaiah 61:1-3)!
We become oaks of righteousness that glorify God by receiving the greatest Gift of all: Christ in you! who builds up our ancient ruins, raises up the former devastations; repairs our ruined body, soul and spirit, the devastation of the generations since Adam. In His glory we rejoice and rest and abide! Instead of shame we have Christ’s double portion! Instead of dishonor we doubly REJOICE! In our consciousness we possess a double portion of the beloved Son! Ours is EVERLASTING JOY; the fullness of Joy in Christ! We abide in Christ and he abides in us! BEST EVER, NOW, AND EVERLASTING! Those who accept Christ are the people whom the LORD has blessed! Our SOUL exults in God; he clothes us with the white garment of Christ, covers us with the robe of righteousness, gives us his garland and jewels. His garden, sowed by Jesus into our heart, SPRINGS UP, so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to SPRING FORTH before ALL the nations (Isaiah 61:3-11)!
“The great secret of JOY is that you are rightly related to Me…our own personal relationship to Jesus the Christ. ‘Believe you that I am able to do this?’ The one great challenge is–Do I KNOW our Risen Lord? Do I know the POWER of His indwelling Spirit? Am I WISE enough in God’s sight, and FOOLISH enough according to the world, to BANK ON what Jesus said, or am I abandoning the GREAT supernatural position…BOUNDLESS confidence in Christ Jesus…’ALL power is given unto Me…go!'” (Oswald Chambers)
“Personal attachment to Lord Jesus and His point of view is the ONE THING that must not be overlooked…The astute mind is the MIND OF GOD, not human wisdom at all. We give credit to human wisdom when we should give credit to the Divine guidance of God through child-like people who were foolish enough to TRUST GOD’S WISDOM and the SUPERNATURAL equipment of God” (O.C.)
“The Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you ALL things, and bring to your remembrance ALL that I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. When I go away, I WILL COME TO YOU” John 14:26-28
“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 will be IN YOU. I will not leave you orphans or desolate or widows; I WILL COME TO YOU” John 14:17
“I stand at the door and knock” Revelation 3:20
OPEN THE DOOR!
Receive it ALL; arise and go! (John 17:7-26)
