Holy Spirit hovers over each human being until you are ripe. Oswald Chambers says you cannot DRINK grapes; they have to be CRUSHED first to be made into wine, so you can drink it and be merry of soul; unripe grapes that are crushed make BITTER wine.
The Spirit and Bride say, “Come and TAKE the water of life without price” for Jesus already PAID THE FULL PRICE. You just GIVE HOLY SPIRIT your living body to be filled, as you consciously choose to EMPTY of your human nature to be filled with divine nature of Christ. We come to Christ to DRINK and be filled with Christ so our water can turn to wine and flow the new spiritual substance from us like a river. We come to Christ to YOKE as one; learn as the two become one. We invite the Spirit of God to enter in and inhabit our body, making us a new body temple for God to return his divine glory to inhabit.
In the garden, the first Adam was formed from the dust and God breathed life into him to make a living being. God took woman out of his side; the one became two.
In the garden of Gethsemane, the LAST Adam contemplated what he was about to do for the entire human race: die to all of Adam’s lineage and inheritance so we could be made NEW of God. Jesus died to all of Adam’s sin and death nature; resurrected into a living spirit. When we COME TO CHRIST, the two become one new living spirit!
In Christ we become a heavenly spirit in an earthly body; Christ within. When we are baptized by His Holy Spirit and fire; we put on a Christ-like garment of his anointing. We PUT ON Christ!
“The law was our custodian UNTIL CHRIST CAME…in Christ Jesus you are ALL sons of God, through faith. For AS MANY OF YOU were BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST have PUT ON CHRIST. IN Christ there is neither Jew nor Gentile, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are ALL ONE IN CHRIST JESUS. And IF you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise” Galatians 3:23-29
There is more than one baptism. There was the baptism of repentance through water; John the Baptist’s baptism. Jesus went through this baptism as the LAST ADAM so he could die to everything of the “human condition” passed on through Adam’s lineage. Jesus told the RELIGIOUS ruler he must be BORN AGAIN or he could not see the kingdom of God. His temple sacrifices and water purification EXTERNAL RITUALS could not save him. Jesus said he had to be born anew FROM ABOVE by water AND Spirit.
Through water we die with Christ to be resurrected with Christ. Not even being breathed on by the ascended Christ Jesus to receive the Holy Spirit was enough. Jesus told his disciples they should stay in the city UNTIL they were endued by POWER from on high: the baptism of Holy Spirit AND FIRE from God.
“I will pour my Spirit upon all flesh” (Acts 2:17)
“You make known to me the ways of Life; you make me FULL of gladness with your Presence” (Acts 2:28)
Without the full born again experience, you remain in the lineage of Adam, inheriting sin, sorrow and death or you remain “double-minded” and cannot receive anything from God. The new covenant is between The Son and The Father; we enter in through the Son in us and we are endued with power from his anointing UPON us.
Our lineage and inheritance IN CHRIST is from heaven to earth and we begin to live FROM CHRIST, FROM victory, FROM what was won so we can be one with Christ in God. The same Spirit that resurrected Jesus, comes to resurrect us from death to life, from lost to found, from darkness to light. The Father qualifies us, delivers us from the dominion of darkness, and TRANSFERS us to the Kingdom of the Beloved Son on earth as it is in heaven (Colossians 1:13).
Are you willing to be MOVED?
God made us a kingdom, and gave us new identities in the image and likeness of Christ: kings, priests, sons and brides to our Bridegroom and Father of Glory (Presence). The Creator is the father of Presence; Christ Jesus is the king of Presence; in Christ we are of the Presence and carry the Presence, instead of it hovering over us like Wings. The Son of righteousness rises within us with healing in his wings and we go leaping with Joy and New Life!
