The Peace that Jesus left us with is NOT the “world peace” of the god of this world that says, “peace” but delivers endless war, and the spirit of this world that delivers perpetual conflict. Jesus told us that in the world we will have tribulation but IN HIM we have Peace. We COME OUT OF THE WORLD when we COME TO HIM; we no longer take part in her sins and share in her plagues, demons, unclean spirits, and mixed wine (truth with lies; light with darkness). We give ALL of us and receive ALL of Christ: all light with no darkness at all; all Truth with no lies at all; PERFECT PEACE: shalom: wholeness, completeness, nothing missing, nothing broken, the rest of God.
“A tranquil mind gives LIFE to the flesh” Proverbs 14:30
His Word is faithful and true and we can completely, unequivocally trust The Word of God that is the Sword of the Spirit to slay whatever puts itself ABOVE God, whether it is disease, disorders, distress or division. Everything has to BOW at the Name and Nature of Christ Jesus! Believe and Receive!
“Have NO ANXIETY about anything, but IN EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made KNOWN to God. And the PEACE OF GOD, which passes all understanding, will keep your heart and mind in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:6-7
The Peace that Jesus gives us is NOT world peace; it is NOT compromise with the world but elevation into His Perfect Peace, beyond the world tree of good and evil. We do not live down to the world to fit in; we rise up to fit in heavenly places with Christ.
“Do not conform to this world, but be TRANSFORMED by the renewal of your Christ Mind” Romans 12:2
“Peace I leave with you; MY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let them be afraid. I go away, AND I COME TO YOU” REJOICE! John 14:27-28
NOW and is to come!
Christ in you is Peace beyond duality, and all the Promises of God are “yes and amen” IN CHRIST. When physical facts APPEAR that seem to disagree with the Truth and Life of Christ in you, we wield the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, and physical facts HAVE TO BOW to spiritual Truth. We STAND on the Truth of God, put on the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-19) and the whole armor of Light (Romans 13:12-14) and wear the Lord Jesus Christ like a seamless Garment of Fire Light that consumes all that is not Christ trying to come against you.
After we let Jesus cleanse, purify, wash, refine, and regenerate the INSIDE of us, we put on the Whole Armor and use the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God to slay anything that is not of Holy Spirit that comes against us. We repent immediately when the Holy Spirit convicts our heart for our RELATIONSHIP with God our Father is the most important thing in our lives. Jesus went back to the Eternal Father to live as one and sent us the Holy Spirit and fire of God to supply every need including protection and provision to live heaven on earth. Christ in you is a new heaven on earth. Allowing Christ to flow through you like a River nourishes a new earth to grow. God sowed Jesus on earth; we REAP Christ!
Christ Jesus is Perfect Peace!
The spirit of this world is perpetual conflict–judging others by external differences with the stress response of fight, flight or freeze. The god of this world blinds spiritual eyes–pokes and provokes physical eyes. The Holy Spirit opens the spiritual eyes of our heart to spiritually see from the Heart of God with Christ in you; then Peace like a River can flow from the Throne in and through you.
The Spirit of Peace, God’s Presence and Power goes to work IN US and is able to do exceedingly abundantly MORE than we could ask, think or imagine! The Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, divides us from evil and fills us with His Goodness and Peace even in the midst of circumstances.
When we join the Family of God through Jesus, we are strengthened with might through the Eternal Father’s Spirit in our inner spirit man according to the RICHES OF CHRIST’S GLORY. Christ begins to LIVE in our heart and we root and ground in LOVE and grow in POWER to comprehend spiritually, and to KNOW EXPERIENTIALLY the Love of Christ that you may be FILLED with ALL the fulness of God. The GLORY of the Father is in Christ in you which CHANGES EVERYTHING. We rest with Christ in God and the Holy Spirit works in and through us.
We grow from fear and survival to KNOW the Love of Christ. We receive Christ’s Righteousness when we give Jesus our sin and we enter RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with our Father. We surrender our will for “Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” The eyes of our heart are opened and enlightened; our spiritual sight restored. We get our spiritual voice back when we listen, hear and obey the Voice of the True Shepherd, The Lamb of God. We take every thought captive, take the Mind of Christ with the higher thoughts of God that manifest a new heaven and earth. We conquer and are granted to sit with Christ in heavenly places. Our spirit begins to worship 24/7 at the throne; Holy Spirit intercedes in us with sighs too deep for words. Our High Priest forever, Jesus of the order of Melchizedek prays 24/7 for us, in us and through us. We live Christ’s Shalom.
“The Lord blesses you and keeps you. The Lord makes his face shine in and upon you and is gracious to you. The Lord lifts his countenance in you and gives you Shalom”
