Don’t misunderstand, when the “perfect” comes, the imperfect passes away. Heaven and earth pass away, but the Word (Life and Spirit) never passes away. The Word made flesh in you by the Holy Spirit of God, Christ in you, is a new heaven and a new earth. You die to who you were in the world; you are born anew from above of God; a new creature of the new creation. “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who lives but Christ who lives in me” Apart from union with the perfect Living One we can do nothing but harm the earth and God’s creation.
“Abide in Me and I in you”
“IF you abide in Me and My Word abides in you, whatever you ask will be done to give glory to My Father”
We ask and receive; we seek and find; we knock and the Door opens. Christ comes into our imperfection with His Perfection; into our unholiness with His Holiness; into our unbelief with His Faith; into our unrighteousness with His Righteousness, etc., etc.
Yoked WITH Christ we learn from Christ; we learn to rest in God letting the Power of God work in and through us; we learn to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit to be led and so our heart is convicted right away if we “turn left or right” and we repent immediately and immediately are restored by the Blood of the Lamb of God that covers every sin and falling short of the glory, past, present and future. “God works EVERYTHING for good in those who love God and are called to His Purpose” “Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven”
We count it ALL joy as we follow The Lamb of God to the Water of Life, the Holy Spirit and glory Presence of God, because the full effect is that you may be “perfect and complete, lacking in NOTHING” James 1:2-4. At the first symptom we speak life and blessings and Truth to our spirit and soul and body, “By His stripes I am healed; by His chastisement I am made whole” “The Life I now live I live within the perfect Body of Christ Jesus and by the all powerful, authoritative Spirit of Christ Jesus” the Word and Spirit of God made flesh through Christ in you.
Receive the GOOD NEWS not the bad news the world inundates you with 24/7; nor the mixed news you get from world religion or those who want to keep you dependent on themselves not God. “When I am lifted up I will draw all up to myself” “I go to prepare a place within Myself…I will not leave you as orphans or desolate…I will come to you, manifest Myself to you, and my Father and I will come and make our Home IN YOU” There is no time nor space in the Spirit; now and is to come you can ripen and be harvested into Joy! enter the wedding supper of the Lamb! the two become one! We are saved by grace through faith; with Christ we receive our inheritance as a co-first-born from the dead by grace through faith!
“The Spirit and Bride say, ‘Come…TAKE the water of life without price’ ”
“Partake of the divine nature”
The Lamb was slain before the foundation of the world; we begin to partake of our inheritance with Christ when we turn from agreeing with the world to join with Jesus so we can have open heavenly access on earth. “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no one can come to the holy, perfect Father except through the holy, perfection of Christ, the Son of God, the Messiah given for all human beings. There is nothing perfect on earth except that which is of Christ; only Christ Jesus can complete you by the power of the Holy Spirit sent from the Father. All creation is waiting for human beings to wake up and receive the Light of Christ.
“Those who join themselves to the Lord God become one Spirit with him”
We are humble before God, but not passive participants in what God is doing; we receive the Christ, take the armor of God, put on the armor of Light; we put on the Lord Jesus Christ as a garment and we begin to decree, declare, proclaim The Way, The Truth, The Life, salvation, redemption, forgiveness of sins, sanctification, even glorification (Romans 8:30; John 17:22-23), good news of the Kingdom, gospel of the glory of God, transformation, healing, deliverance, freedom, and so much MORE!
“We are MORE than conquerors in Christ Jesus”
