Better than mindful is heartful! Better than mindfulness is heartfulness! better than half-hearted is whole-hearted! Hearty! The substance of Christ is hearty, fulfilling and satisfying like nothing else!
Christ is the heart of the matter! Within the word heart are the words hear and ear, so listening with the ear of our heart is critical to be led by the Spirit of God. When we receive Christ Jesus into our heart we begin the new journey of life instead of death; finding instead of constant seeking!
- Christ awakens our spirit
- Christ opens our heart
- Christ transforms our mind
- Christ regenerates our body
if we let him be Lord of our spirit and soul and body, instead of making our body Lord (slave to instinctual drives, habits or addictions) or our mind Lord (slave to our thoughts, thinking they are our reality) or our feelings Lord (slave to fear, worry, anxiety, depression, shame, guilt, regret, etc.).
Instead we allow the Holy Spirit to enact transformation, regeneration, awakening, quickening, revitalization, restore youth and provide us with renewed spiritual resources and every spiritual blessing from the throne of God! We work on being better receivers of all Christ has already done for us and wants to do in us and through us! We strive only to enter our Abba Father’s seventh day rest which is the eternal Day of Christ in us (since 70 AD) if we let him bring the new dawn and morning star rise in our heart! “Christ remains forever” “Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever”
“Build yourselves up on your most holy faith” (Jude 1:20). It is already finished! Build yourselves up with the Truth and Life of Christ; speak the Word to yourself, be fully fed with the Word and continuously drink of the Holy Spirit River from the throne, quickened, activated, imparted, receiving every good endowment and every perfect gift from our Father of glory light! Be full and quenched by not quenching or resisting the Holy Spirit!
“Pray in the Holy Spirit” (Jude 1:20) Stay in the River of Spirit continuously; see yourself in the pillar of Light, Love and Spirit from the throne of God; be clothed with the Light of God! “Put on the armor of Light…put on the Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 13:11-14)
“Keep yourselves in the Love of God” (Jude 1:21) It is already done! Keep receiving Abba Father’s Love made possible by Jesus the Christ! It is not the world’s love; God is Love and his Nature is Love and God in you is all the mercy, grace, glory and power you will ever need to live a kingdom life of overcoming, conquering Victory in Christ, Christ in you!
The Spirit and fire comes down from heaven through us when we are ripe for harvest, crown to soles, washing and removing dross, chaff, wood, hay, stubble, and impurities. We are refined in the furnace that leaves the pure gold of Christ and we willingly put on his white garment of light; his robe of righteousness, his garment of salvation, our marriage garment. Then the Spirit River begins to rise sole to crown and becomes an eternal fountain in us!
Christ Jesus inhabits our innermost spirit man as a being of fire if we let him (Revelation 1:13-16) and our body becomes a golden lampstand inhabited by the seven spirits from the throne! Christ Spirit enlightens the eyes of our heart to see as he sees and our whole body fills with Light! Jesus is the Lamp and God’s glory is our Light within! His fire forms a wall around us to protect and provide for us; his glory returns to our body temple on earth as it is in heaven! Christ Jesus unites all things in heaven and on earth in his people! This is the Joy we inherit for enduring the tests, trials, and suffering to prove to ourselves that Christ Jesus is Faithful and True, the Word of God, King of kings, Lord of lords, and his Spirit is the Holy Spirit of God! Trust This!
It all begins with receiving Christ into your heart! coming like a child to our Father and receiving his Love! and letting his Holy Spirit and fire transform, transfigure and activate the seed to become the kingdom of heaven on earth within you!
