Our soul is the mind of our heart where we plant. “As we think in our heart, so are we.”
If we think in our heart that we are a human being living in the world of form (not knowing Christ’s sacrifice, death, resurrection, ascension, glorification and promise to send his glorified Spirit to all who receive Him so we can have his River of Living Water flowing through us), we live in the lineage and bear the fruit of Adam from satan’s tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
But if we wake up, arise from the dead, and receive the Light Christ gives us, we can plant His seed, thinking Christ’s higher thoughts and ways in our heart, no longer viewing him or ourselves from a human point of view; knowing in Christ we are a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come! (2 Cor 5:16-17)
If the seed we use is the Word of God, God-breathed, God-inspired seed of Christ, planted in the soil of a heart transformed in Christ; furrowed by life, broken open to the depths to let the Light of Christ enter…
watered by the River of Water of Life from the throne of God…
the Holy Spirit seven rivers…
only the tree of life can grow from the Christ seed…
only the fruit of Christ can grow on a Christ tree!
The key is being in ever-increasingly intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in God! We come to Christ, yoke to him, learn from him, rest in him, and behold his glory to be changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit! (2 Cor 3:12-18)
We become free and unencumbered into expanding awareness as we go through the various trials, tests, tribulations, or crisis turning-points in our lives. We count it all joy as the full effect is complete, perfect and lacking nothing! (James 1:2-4) We rise above the fray into the new vision God has of our life as an overcomer, conqueror, knowing the powerful Holy Spirit presence and power of God in us. The morning star rises in our hearts, the eternal dawn of a new day of Christ comes with each breath of His Life: we exhale, crucify, empty the old life; inspire, resurrect, inhale the new life of Christ in you.
We get a choice every day to turn back to the old life through circumstances, situations, issues, challenges, crisis (both danger and opportunity) OR turn to God and let him Father us and give us his good endowments and every perfect gift from Above! All His promises are “yes and amen” in Christ in us!
We can choose to go back to the darkness or become a light city on a hill–beholding Christ’s glory to be filled with his glory Presence and be surrounded by his fire Light!
“We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life” Romans 6:4
“The burning bush is a symbol of everything that surrounds the ready soul, it is ablaze with the presence of God” ~Oswald Chambers
“For I will be to her a wall of fire round about, says the Lord, and I will be the glory within her” Zechariah 2:5
We carry his Presence as priests; we carry his Power as kings in Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords, in the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. “In the fullness of time he united all things in Christ, things in heaven and things on earth” (Ephesians 1:10).
Yoked with Christ we are God’s sons; made one with the Father and the Lamb we are the Beloved’s brides! To God be the glory now and forever and ever Amen. Hallelujah!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus the Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us with him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. God destined us in Love to be his sons through Christ Jesus, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace which he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.” Ephesians 1:3-6
Plant only Christ Seed in the garden of the mind of your heart!
“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be given unto you”
“The kingdom of God is… righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit”
