We need all four things, Father, Son, Spirit, you, to be complete in Christ who is our perfection, holiness, righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
“He has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church which is HIS BODY, the fullness of him who fills all in all” Ephesians 1:22-23
The Body is useless, powerless, directionless, or wrongly directed, unless it is attached permanently to the Head of The Father AND flowing with the River of Water of Life: the Holy Spirit.
“If you love me, you rejoice because I go the Father; for the Father is greater than I” John 14:28
“By one Spirit we are all baptized into one body…all made to drink of one Spirit” 1 Cor 12:13
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God…Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit” John 3:3-7
The new earth is The Body of Christ; the eyes of Christ’s Body always lifted upward to heaven. The new heaven is The Spirit River of Christ, always flowing downward to earth. The feet of the Body are always firmly rooted and grounded on The Rock Foundation of the Cross. The heart of the Body are shining and radiating with eternal, supernal Light! The hands of the Body are always open, inviting, welcoming, beckoning towards the open Door; Jesus is The Door to the open heaven and The Door for heaven to flow into you!
The Eternal Father is the Head; the Christ is the Body forever attached and one with The Head; the Holy Spirit is the Life flowing in the Body like the River of Life in the midst of the Tree of Life. The fourth thing is you individually as a member of The Body; you cannot be born into the body of Christ; you cannot use your parents faith; you cannot buy your way in; you cannot just join a church or practice religion. You enter the Body of Christ by being born anew from above of God by water and Spirit: by the Water of the Word which is Life and Spirit (The Word made flesh: Christ Jesus in the flesh) and the Holy Spirit of God our Father (the Spirit of God poured upon all flesh).
“Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it” 1 Cor 12:27
We are dead until we come to new Life in Christ; we are separated from The Body until we choose to come to Christ; we are lukewarm until we go beyond church attendance and religious practices or rituals to the Reality of knowing Christ in you, the hope of glory.
“I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm…I spew you out of my mouth. For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing [self-reliant/self-righteous/self-aware]; not knowing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. Therefore I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, that you may be rich [the riches of glory: Christ in you], and white garments to clothe you to keep the shame of your nakedness to be seen [white light of Christ’s Garment/Christ clothing your spirit and soul and body], and salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see [anointed with Christ Anointing]. Those whom I love, I reprove and chasten; so be zealous and REPENT. Behold, I stand at the door [of your heart] and knock; IF any one HEARS my voice and opens the door, I WILL COME IN TO YOU. Those who conquer I grant to sit with ME with MY FATHER” Revelation 3:15-21
HEAR and heal of all that separates you from your true identity, nature, spirit and soul and body.
“For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ…If all were a single organ, where would the body be? As it is there are many parts, yet one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I have no need of you,’ nor the head to the feet, ‘I have no need of you.’ Let there be no discord in the body” 1 Cor 12:12-31
“In that Day you will KNOW that I am in my Father, you in Me, I in you” John 14:20
