I was led to Revelation 18 today after waking up in the middle of the night with Revelation 22:16 “I Jesus send my angel to you”
Since 70 AD when the EXTERNAL temple was destroyed so that not a stone was left unturned, so Holy Spirit could come and make humans the new temple of God, many religions have continued and new religions have emerged. Today we find man-made religious rituals, demon-led rituals and a proliferation of elemental spirits of the universe instead of The Bride. The wheat has grown up with the weeds so that we can now see what is bearing Christ Fruit and what is bearing mixed fruit.
In 2018 it is time to come out of false, counterfeit, fallen, tainted, mixed religion. Jesus did not say, “Come to religion” but Jesus says, “Come to Me, yoke, learn, and find rest for your soul.” Jesus said it was to our advantage that He was going back to be perfectly one with God so He could send us the Perfect, Holy, Righteous, Godly, True Spirit to be with and in us forever. The Holy Spirit and fire burn the tree of the knowledge of good and evil down in you, root to branch, so the The Son of Righteousness can rise within you with healing in His Wings that sends you leaping with Joy from bondage to the new heaven and new earth where righteousness dwells. You leave everything you KNOW to receive the NEW!
The Holy Spirit enters your human spirit, reforming and enlarging your territory; your field of God. Holy Spirit sanctifies your soul (heart, mind, will) expanding and transforming your heart into a new heaven and new earth, bejeweled light, refined gold, purified, washed, cleansed, cleared of stones or obstructions; filled and overflowing with the River of Water of Life! The Holy Spirit transfigures your body into a city of light where the glory, the presence of God can live, move and have Christ being in you!
Do you not know that your transfigured body is a temple of God filled with the Holy Spirit? your sanctified, transformed soul is clothed with Christ’s White Wedding Garment of Light? your reformed, enlarged spirit is one Spirit with God?
Before the fire of God removes the community of religious and unclean spirits within you, and the Holy Spirit washes and regenerates you into a Bride, you try to do good and be righteous, but you experience Romans 7 instead. But after the Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus, you have the Wisdom and Power to overcome and conquer as Jesus overcame the world and conquered to sit on the throne with God (Revelation 3:15-21). Romans 8 says in Christ we are only under the law of the Spirit of Life! “You are not in the flesh, you are in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you” (Romans 8:9). The flesh is born anew OF SPIRIT and the WATER OF LIFE so God can have fellowship, communion, and live in you so glory can return to the body temple! Our body becomes a NEW garden paradise; part of the NEW heaven and NEW earth where righteousness dwells.
We stay awake in Christ to WASH our wedding garment (Revelation 22:14) received (Revelation 19:8) from “coming out of her” (Revelation 18:4) when the things of the world try to reattach to us or forget who we are in Christ and whose we are with Christ in us. We have to take every thought captive to obey Christ (perceive with our heart, see, listen, hear, and act on what we perceive, see, and hear God doing).
“Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity EVERY thought to the obedience of Christ.” 2 Cor 10:5
We make sure our body filled with the Spirit is attached to the Head, our Father of Glory. We set our mind on heavenly things above, not things of earth. We anchor our soul in Christ; we root and ground in Christ Love, Light and Spirit. The Holy Spirit and fire River keep all that is unclean or unrighteous out of our heart married or yoked to Christ, and His Life flowing within us.
Blessed are those who wash their robes giving them access to the tree of life and enter through the gate of Christ. Outside of Christ are the dogs, sorcerers, fornicators, murderers, idolaters, and every one who loves and practices falsehood (Revelation 22:14-15).
“I Jesus send my angel to you with my testimony” Revelation 22:16. The holy angels are not to be worshiped, but recognized as fellow servants and our brethren who hold the testimony of ascended, glorified King of kings, Lord of lords, Jesus! the conquering, victorious Word and Spirit of God in us! “They are ministering spirits sent forth to serve, for the sake of those who are to obtain salvation” (Revelation 19:10; Hebrews 1:14).
“Cleansing from sin is to the very heights and depths of our spirit if we will keep in the light as God is in the light, and the very Spirit that fed the life of Jesus Christ will feed the life of our spirits” ~ Oswald Chambers
“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God” Romans 8:14
Take heart, Jesus has overcome the world and sends us the Holy Spirit to be with and in us so we can overcome.
