Today is the 500 year anniversary of a roman catholic monk, Martin Luther, calling out the hypocrisy and apostasy of the Vatican and roman catholic church. Let us realize everything that is hidden is EXPOSED by the True Light of Christ, even when it is dressed up in religious garb and rituals that have the EXTERNAL appearance of holiness. Lucifer is counterfeit light, lux, but not the true light that enlightens every human being who comes to Christ, ever since Christ came to earth and filled all of earth, under the earth and heavens with the Light of God. United with Christ we are of God; separated from Christ we are enemies of God, subject to the wrath of God prepared for the devil and a third of the angels that fell with satan.
All authority and power in the heavens and the earth is given to Jesus from our God who is our Father, the Father of Glory, the Father of lights. In Christ we are God’s lights, with the glory of Christ within, the fire of God around us, and every good endowment and every perfect gift sent down from God to indwell us. The glory of the created light of the sun, moon and stars does not compare with the Greater Light of Christ, the latter Glory of Christ in you, the same Glory that our Father gave to Jesus when he ascended back to the Father and gives to those who come to Christ and receive the inheritance of God with Christ.
Before there was created light, there was the Glory, the Presence of God. Before the Word, the sound waves of “Light, be!” the Spirit of God hovered and moved over the formless, void that was earth. Now Christ brings us the Light of God and gives us his Presence so we can transform into the image and likeness of God, so we no longer look like Adam, but are changed into the likeness of Christ. The Holy Spirit is sent to us to form Christ in those who yield themselves spirit and soul and body; die with Christ, resurrect with Christ and live for God, letting Christ live, move and have his being in us!
“It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me”
When we wake up and receive the Light of Christ, we can begin to discern the spirits; cast out the unclean spirits and replace with the Holy Spirit. We can know what spirit is living in us by the fruit of the Holy Spirit manifesting (love peace joy gentleness goodness kindness patience faith self-control) or the fruit of unclean spirits manifesting. When we are hungry, angry, lonely or tired (HALT) what spirit manifests through you? irritability, anger, lust, doubts, uncertainty, fear, sadness, grief, depression, anxiety, histrionics, overwhelm, confusion, critical, grumpy, complaining, etc.
Are you in relationship with fear or God? depression or Christ? anxiety or Holy Spirit? “In Christ the old has PASSED AWAY; the new HAS COME” We move THROUGH states of fear, depression, anxiety WITH CHRIST; we do not make our bed and lie there. We destroy stongholds and old mindsets with the fire of God that consumes everything not of Christ and let the Holy Spirit form Christ Nature in us.
Religion is for unbelievers, for you can’t have a relationship with someone you do not KNOW. Just like internet relationships, the person you are introduced to can be saying all the right things but keeping their true identity hidden. The hidden capstone of lucifer has replaced the true light of Christ in many religious organizations and world institutions. Religious rituals, images, symbols have replaced the glory of God, the actual, manifest, real Presence of Christ in God.
Christ Jesus brings you into RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with God; Christ gives you his glory, the same glory in our Father. Christ gives you his Spirit, the same Spirit as in our Father. “In that day you will KNOW I am in my Father and you in me and I in you” “The glory I received from my Father I give to you so you may be one as my Father and I are one”
Jesus said to the religious leaders of his day, “Your father is the devil”
Jesus says to the people today, now and is to come, “Come out of her, lest you take part in her sins, share in her plagues”
Repent; believe the gospel of God; receive forgiveness of sins and redemption. Ask for the Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus and let everything of Adam be removed in the consuming fire; let Christ be formed in you!
