The law of first mention and the word, “first,” both point to a very important Truth of God.
First seek the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and all things are added from that! Both the Kingdom and Righteousness are FOUND in Christ!
The Kingdom of God is Righteousness and Peace and Joy in the Holy Spirit.
Without the Cross there would be no Righteousness. Without Righteousness there is no Kingdom of the Beloved Son on earth. The new heaven and new earth is where Righteousness dwells or lives! Only when we are born again OF God by Water and Spirit are we dead to human nature and alive to Christ who brings us the Kingdom, Power and Glory of God to live, move and have the Presence of God in our being through the Spirit of Christ.
The River of Water of Life from the throne and the Holy Spirit of God come down out of heaven from our Father to live in us, makes us born anew from above OF GOD, no longer OF the world. In the Kingdom we are no longer OF the world.
Born again children of God can SEE the Kingdom; only Righteousness can enter the Kingdom.
Only with Righteousness can we be truly at Peace! Only at Peace can we truly live in Joy! in the Holy Spirit! in the Glory! in the Presence of God! in the Kingdom! with Christ in us!
First things first! Make the main thing the main thing! Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus! Receive the Holy Spirit and keep your body Lamp full of oil! Receive the fire of God and keep your oil ignited and blazing with Light! Stay in the River of Water of Life coming through the open Door of heaven (Jesus is The Open Door that opens heaven and closes the doors of hell and the astral realms of unclean spirits). Let the miracle grow of God keep your inner Tree of Life (Christ in you) flourishing and fruiting Christ!
Keep your mind set on things above! life and peace! Keep your thoughts on heavenly things, not on things of this world! The One Thing is the direct revelation of Christ Jesus, inviting Christ to live, move and have His being in us; receiving the Holy Spirit of God to bring all of the free gifts of the Eternal Father from heaven to live in you on earth!
Christ is our new life in the Holy Spirit; Christ is our righteousness; Christ is our peace; Christ is our joy in the Holy Spirit; Christ is the perfect Love of the Father; Christ is the pure Light of the Father; Christ is the same Spirit of God who raised Jesus from the dead, ascended and glorified Him; and sent us His Spirit! Accept and Receive!
Thank you Eternal Father, Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace, Almighty God!
“And His Name shall be called ‘Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.’ Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be NO END, upon the throne of David, and OVER HIS KINGDOM, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with RIGHTEOUSNESS from THIS TIME forth AND for evermore” Isaiah 9:6-7
Now AND is to come!
