All are called; few choose God back. All are called; few say “yes.”
It is more than time to turn to God’s Higher Wisdom and leave the world’s wisdom that does not come down from heaven out of God but is “earthly, unspiritual, devilish” (James 3:15). The Wisdom from Above is pure, peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits without uncertainty or insincerity. The “harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace” (James 3:17-18). Those of the world say, “peace, peace, but destructions comes” while those of Christ become the Peace of God through the Spirit of Peace.
The Father sends us the Spirit of Truth that the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; but those who come to the Father through Jesus know him, for he dwells with you and in you forever (John 14:16-17). WHEN the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth…he will take what is Jesus’ and declare it to you. ALL that the Father has is Jesus’ and He gives it to you (John 16:13-15). Our job is to realize it and accept it by taking it and using it!
Mercy is the Compassion of God to his children. Grace is the power to change. Glory is the presence of Christ Spirit that comes to live, move and have Being in you so you can do the things Jesus did and even greater things because he went to the Father and sent you the Holy Spirit and fire of God. You take the fiery Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, and slay all that is not of Christ in your life, which makes you an overcomer, a conqueror and Jesus grants you access to sit with him in heavenly places as a kingdom co-heir with Christ. From the heavenly places WITH Christ you can advance His Kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. You no longer flow with the world’s current because the River of Water of Life from God turns you around to live from heaven to earth.
Your sorrow turns to joy when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; His Joy becomes your strength! His Joy remains when you wake up and realize what you have been given; His Joy becomes your fullness of joy! You must take what you have been given and make it real in your own life. Old patterns of thinking must be taken captive and replaced with the New, Ever-Renewing Mind of Christ; fresh every morning. The old has passed away, behold, the new has come, but you have to stay awake and walk it out! Stay alert, watchful, pay attention to each new dawn of Christ in you; allow the morning star to rise in your heart every morning when you commune with our Father in Word and Spirit.
You stop following anything or anyone except the risen, ascended, glorified Christ Jesus who will NEVER lead you astray! All are called; will you follow? All are called; will you say YES?
All things are possible WITH God who works all things together for good for those who love God and are called according to His Purpose. As the world grows darker and more dangerous, the Light of Christ shines brighter and brighter as a beacon of hope, a safe harbor from all storms, a place of rest for your soul.
