From 2 Cor 1:3-11:
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus The Christ, the Father of mercies NEW every morning, and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in ANY affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God…through Christ we share ABUNDANTLY in comfort…so we can patiently wait with eager expectation until CHRIST is revealed to and in us…with unshaken HOPE that does not disappoint…there is ALWAYS hope.
Through crisis, we become utterly, unbearably crushed that we despair of life itself. We may believe we have received a sentence of death; but that is to make us RELY not on ourself, but on God who RAISES THE DEAD…raises dead hopes, dreams, marriages, relationships, bodies, minds, emotions, and lives. He delivers us THROUGH the fires of crisis and THROUGH the waters that storm, flood, and overwhelm us. We can do nothing APART from God, separated from God; but we can do ALL THINGS in Christ who strengthens us. We give thanks to God for all the heavenly blessings, gifts, anointing, and glory (manifest Presence of God) granted us in answer to many prayers. (the Holy Spirit intercedes for us in sighs/groans BEYOND WORDS; the High Priest, Christ Jesus, intercedes 24/7 for us: we have to come to Christ and RECEIVE what has ALREADY BEEN GIVEN)
With God, ALL things are possible. ALL means ALL. With men is it impossible; with God NOTHING is too hard; nothing is beyond God; nothing is higher, lower, broader or longer than God. We cast out anything that is between us and God; we break down EVERY barrier we have erected that keeps our Father’s Love from POURING into our heart through the Holy Spirit. We let go of the world’s wisdom and ASK for the Wisdom from ABOVE. Christ is BOTH the Power of God and the Wisdom of God.
I choose to KNOW nothing but the glorified Christ; to KNOW the Glory: the invisible Father of Glory and the visible King of Glory, the Lord of Glory.
We lift our holy hands and clean heart (knowing Christ lives in our heart when we have invited Christ to live in us), inviting the King of Glory to come in to rule and reign IN US; be the fire, light and glory IN US; be the River of Water of Life that flows above, in and through us; be the anointing upon us; be the spiritual discernment within us; be the Wisdom and Power in us; be the Breath of Life in us; be the Foundation we stand on; be the Cornerstone we rely on; be the Head we think from; be OF the Source of Life whom God made our Wisdom, our Righteousness and Sanctification and Redemption (1 Cor 1:30)
We speak to the crisis (cr IS IS) bringing the LIGHT of the REALITY of Christ (chris t: the cross added to any crisis is Christ Victorious!) Jesus into whatever IS IS, and the LIGHT brings it to nothing (1 Cor 1:28). Knowing Christ in us, we speak life and blessing to it and bring what does not yet exist into being (Romans 4:17). The Word of God is not just words of wisdom but demonstration of the Spirit and Power of God that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men or the world’s wisdom but in the Power of God! (1 Cor 2:4-5)
There are two kinds of wisdom and now is the time to cast out the world’s wisdom and receive the Wisdom of God to rise above the ills of the world that is getting sicker and sicker apart from God.
“If you have selfish ambition in your heart, do not boast and be FALSE to the TRUTH. This wisdom is not such as comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, devilish. For where arrogant, selfish (put yourself above God; put yourself above our president; put your “beliefs” above belief in God) behavior exists, there will be DISORDER and EVERY VILE PRACTICE. But the Wisdom from Above is first PURE, then PEACEABLE, GENTLE, OPEN TO GODLY ANOINTED REASON, full of MERCY (lovingkindness, compassion, understanding) and GOOD FRUIT of the Holy Spirit, without UNCERTAINTY or insincerity. And the harvest of RIGHTEOUSNESS is sown IN PEACE by those who MAKE PEACE” (James 3:13-18)
World peace is an oxymoron; the world system will never be in peace because it denies God and is under the god of this world and the spirit of the world which is ANTI-Christ. It only comes to steal peace, rob joy, take love, kill, and destroy life from the unborn to the elderly and everything in between, e.g. millions of abortions, mass shootings, and just one hurricane took 10 elderly nursing home patients. The thief comes ONLY to steal, kill and destroy; Jesus comes ONLY to give LIFE and LIFE more ABUNDANT and FULL.
WITH GOD all things are possible. The spirit of this world comes in people to steal, kill and destroy; Christ comes in you to give you LIFE and LIFE ABUNDANT in every situation or circumstance. We can no longer afford to listen to the world and the world’s wisdom; it is time for the great awakening to RECEIVE the LIGHT of CHRIST; for the revealing of Christ Jesus in you and to you and through you to a hungry and thirsty world who think they need what the “peace” the world is selling by trying to fix the OUTSIDE when what is really needed is the RIGHTEOUSNESS of God in Christ on the INSIDE. The WAY, TRUTH and LIFE of God with Christ in you, is Peace, Love, Joy, and the hope, the assurance and SUBSTANCE of glory, the PRESENCE of God come to inhabit your body, making it a new temple of God, where God’s Spirit dwells in you. God’s Temple is holy, and that temple YOU ARE with Christ in you (1 Cor 3:16-17).
The meekness of pure Wisdom is in sharp contrast to the arrogance of the worldly way. The scoffers and mockers who deride faith in Christ; those full of pride and lust mock the ONE THING that did, is, and will save us all. Those haters who say they are all about social justice, equality, and love, but deny Christ, are full of themselves and do not know God, who IS Love, or the glory of Christ, who IS Light, or the Holy Spirit who IS the righteousness of God in us when we invite Christ to rule and reign in our spirit and soul and body.
“Christ in you imparts a secret and hidden Wisdom of God, which God decreed BEFORE THE AGES for OUR GLORIFICATION: God’s Presence IN US. None of those “of the world” understand this or they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory” None of those who scoff and mock faith in God through Christ understand or KNOW God or the GLORY but soon the earth will be covered with the knowledge of Glory to go beyond knowledge to experiential knowledge of the Glory as we come and YOKE with Christ, come and DRINK from the River of Water of Life to taste and see the GOODNESS in the land of the living. To experience the PEACE of God that transcends ALL understanding to guard your heart and mind IN CHRIST JESUS. To KNOW the Love of Christ and be FILLED with ALL the fullness of God. To experience the Holy Spirit and fire of God flowing in your body, activating, quickening, healing, delivering and setting you free from whatever is afflicting you. To EXPERIENCE the comfort that only the God of comfort can give!
Today, NOW, is the day of your salvation: be made whole (holy) and complete (perfect) IN CHRIST; and ALLOW Christ to live in you; YIELD to be Holy Spirit-led into the ALL GOOD, ALL LOVE, ALL LIGHT, and ALL RIGHTEOUS SPIRIT of God our Father who LOVES all his creation and is longing to see you turn to Him. He will come RUNNING to meet you, forgive you, welcome you back into the FAMILY, take your human garments and give you his royal robe of righteousness, the garment of salvation as a son of God; clothe you with the Son, the Christ, the Light of God, and place His Spirit in your innermost being to replace the old Adam spirit with the new spirit man: glorified Christ in you!
He will give you a royal signet ring to signify your soul’s eternal betrothal to The Bridegroom, The Son, The Christ, and yoke you to Christ so the “two may become one” as our Holy Righteous Heavenly Father of Glory can only fellowship with Christ in you. We become a part of the church of the First Borns from the dead as “true yokefellows” with Christ.
He places the equipment of the gospel of PEACE on your feet so you begin to walk in the Light of Peace as Jesus walked on earth: TRUE PEACE not peace as the world gives. He gives you the Spirit of Truth to lead you into all TRUTH; not as the world defines a plurality of truth. He gives you a Spirit of Power and Love; he does not give you a spirit of fear that the world gives you. Our Father gives you a Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, Counsel and Might or Strength to overcome the world. He gives you a Spirit of the Knowledge of God/Glory to replace the knowledge of good and evil that satan tricked, manipulated and controlled you with. Our Father gives you a Spirit of Reverential Awe, Wonder and Miracles to conquer fear, doubt, unbelief, uncertainty or double-mindedness which keeps you from receiving from God. He gives you HIS SON, The Christ to UNVEIL YOU, and live, move and have HIS BEING in you now and forever and ever. Amen. Hallelujah!
