God speaks in pictures, among many other ways. Picture this: The Word is a seed that starts out IN US as the tinniest of seeds, like a mustard seed. When it gets in the fertile soil of our heart that has broken open through crisis, it goes under the soil. The seed dies and the outer shell breaks open in darkness, but watered by The Spirit of God when we stay in The Word, it activates and quickens, and begins to grow; even when we cannot see it growing. It grows in our sleep and awake hours when we trust God our planter. The weeds and the Christ plant grow up together until they both hit the LIGHT of awareness so we can rip the weeds out by their roots and leave only the Christ Word to grow up in us.
The weeds were planted by ancestors all the way back to Adam, and the weeds planted inadvertently by parents, teachers, authority figures, religious leaders, government, corporations, dark arts and entertainment, and media; and the weeds planted in us by circumstances, traumas, accidents, injuries or wrong beliefs. ALL WEEDS need to be ripped up by the roots and burned root to branch in the FIRE of God’s Love (Malachi 3:1-3; 4:1). The root of bitterness leads to disease, disorders and distress.
When the garden of your body is weeded by the Holy Spirit and fire of God, The Word can grow unobstructed, watered by The Spirit River, and the Son of Righteousness will RISE in you when you surrender ALL to Christ so ALL of Christ Jesus can FILL all of your spirit and soul and body. Our only sacrifice is to GIVE ENTIRELY our LIVING BODY to be FILLED with the glory of God: the manifest Presence of God.
“KNOW the Love of Christ and be filled with all the fullness of God. NOW to him who by the POWER at work WITHIN US is able to do far more abundantly that ALL we ask or think, to him be the glory…to ALL GENERATIONS, for ever and ever. Amen” Ephesians 3:19-20
The sin body is of the old human nature, in the likeness of Adam; falling short of the glory. The new body temple OF GOD contains the NEW BIRTH in the LIKENESS OF CHRIST. We partake of divine nature as a part of the one Body and one Spirit of the Christ of God who is ABOVE ALL and through all and in all who have yielded to the Holy Spirit River and The Word made manifest in you as a Tree of Life watered by the Spirit of Life from the Throne. grace to grace; glory to glory!
