Christ Jesus is entirely unique.
Religion seeks to go “up” and find God,
Christ brought God to live, move and have his being in us!
Religion seeks to get people to heaven
Christ brings a new heaven to live in us.
Religion gives types and shadows
Christ brings the exact pattern, substance and Spirit of God into your spirit and soul and body, making you complete in Christ, Christ in you!
The “buts” cancel what is before them,
“God is a consuming fire”
all that is left is Christ in you, the hope of glory!
The hope of God is not the world’s hope: wishing upon a star; God’s hope is the assurance of the substance and Spirit of Christ in you; his glory in you! all for the glory of God!!!!!!!
The faith of Christ in God is not the world’s faith: religion; God’s faith is the conviction and evidence of the unseen: Christ Jesus brings all the fullness of God into your spirit and soul and body through the Holy Spirit!
Once you have tasted and seen his glory you begin to change, transform, transfigure and see his glory affect others. You may not be able to see the Wind, but you can surely feel it or see what it is changing! I experience Holy Spirit breathing me, filling me up, lifting me. You may not be able to see the River of Water of Life, but you can surely experience its movement or flow! With closed eyes I can see the river of light flowing into me as I turn my attention to God. You may not be able to see the Tree of Life, but you can know its fruit! Satan’s tree of knowledge leaves you wanting; only Christ truly satisfies, fulfills, quenches, fills; Christ Fruit is peace, joy, love, gentleness, goodness, kindness, patience, faithfulness, and self-control!
The Word and Spirit of God is all we need, more than we could ever ask or think; the substance and Spirit of God fill us with all the fullness of God bodily! The Word is a sharp Sword of the Spirit that cuts to the divisions within us so Christ’s Peace, that transcends our understanding, can keep our heart and mind in Christ Jesus; The Word is life and peace to our soul! The Spirit is the River of Living Water that we drink to overflow as a river from our belly! God makes new streams in the wilderness and desert through Christ in us! We spread God’s Light, Love and Spirit as we let His Spirit move in and through us! all to the glory of God our Father!!!!!!!
