All I need to know is WITH Christ Jesus I am dead, resurrected, ascended, glorified when God fills me WITH His Son’s substance and Spirit; NOT by anything I did but by EVERYTHING Jesus did when he brought heaven to earth in the fullness of time; made the LAST sacrifice as the LAST ADAM, once FOR ALL humanity. Now we either say yes, I receive it and be filled with the Holy Spirit and fire of God or make the worst mistake of all time!
Those who deny the Gift of the Father, the Son in them, his blood, water and Spirit, are the “many anti-Christs in the world. They may even be regular “church” members but like the tree that Jesus cursed, having the outward appearance of alive but dead inside, unable to ever bear Christ Fruit, for the life of Christ Jesus is not in them. Or those who have sold out to idols and have hidden agendas to fool the masses; they speak all the “right” words but Christ is not in their heart.
Many have to hit rock bottom before they come to their senses to receive the Good News: the finished work of the cross: if ANYONE is IN CHRIST the old self is dead and gone (dead on the tree outside the camp at Golgotha (place of the skull): empty skull and dead, dry bones); the new has come. In Christ we are a new creature of the new creation: a new heaven and a new earth in our body temple: the place God returns with his glory to live, move and have his being in us!
The world cannot see or know the Holy Spirit and glory, fiery presence, even the Spirit of Truth, until it is revealed in each by the Spirit (John 14:16-28). The world is trapped in the 24/7 bad-news cycle, and misery loves company. People bond over beliefs, mindsets, tragedies, crisis, common enemies, or forming support groups for wounded, hurting, desperate people, when that “cycle of life” is really sin and death being fathered by the father of lies, the god of this world and the elemental spirits that convince people to follow external things; continual seekers who never find; hungry ghosts that continually hunger and thirst for what they do not know; substituting the things that satan offers that can NEVER ultimately satisfy or fulfill; empty idols.
But God! But when our Father sends the Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Christ Jesus, you become one-pointedly hungry and thirsty for the kingdom of God and His righteousness and everything else pales in comparison.
Hebrews 5:11 – 6:5 states that there is much to say which is hard to explain to the dull of hearing. For by now you ought to be teachers, but you still need someone to teach you the first principles of God’s word and are unskilled in the word of righteousness. But the meat of the Word is for the mature, for those who have their faculties or senses trained by practicing the presence of God to distinguish good from evil. Therefore, leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity: be enlightened with the True Light of Christ Jesus, taste and see the heavenly Gift: the glory, the manifest presence, and partake of the Holy Spirit, tasting the goodness of the Word (life and Spirit of Christ), the wisdom and power of Christ in you, the substance and assurance of knowing the glory so it can cover the earth like water covers the sea!
The old covenant was external knowledge of the glory; the new covenant is INTERNAL knowing the glory! experiencing and encountering the Love of Christ to be filled with all the fullness of God! the glory presence! the Holy Spirit and fire of God that burns up all that is anti-Christ in you and leaves only the gold of Christ as you are refined by God’s fire!
“Therefore let us be grateful for RECEIVING a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer our living body to God as acceptable worship in Spirit and Truth, with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire! Christ IN YOU is the hope (substance and assurance) of his fire, glory, Spirit, anointing, wisdom and power in YOU” (Hebrews 12:28; Romans 12:1-2; 2 Cor 3:18)
Abba! Father! we thank you and say YES to your Son, your Christ, your Messiah, your Righteousness, your Kingdom, Power and Glory now and forever and ever and ever. Amen. Hallelujah!!!!!!!
No longer exchange the glory for images, types or shadows; accept only the Real of Christ’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Receive by faith through grace!!!!!!!
