The thing I have against tainted religion is the missing IS of “is, was and is to come”
while they focus all the attention on the “was” and “is to come”
they leave their followers vulnerable, weak, sick, diseased, disordered, broken, lacking, limited, miracle-less, joy-less, coming to religious buildings made with human hands and speaking for God; preaching to the “choir” their various beliefs, doctrines of men and demons mixed with some truth, and you find leopards with spots instead of the spotless Bride.
The Word says to not conform to the world, but be TRANSFORMED by the renewing of your mind in Christ Jesus
the daily regenerating, renewing and refreshing of the Holy Spirit,
the never-ending River from heaven out of God
that gives you a Spirit of Power and Love
and a Sound Mind,
not a spirit of fear or disease or disorders,
a Regenerated Heart
no longer filled with darkness
but full of the Light of Christ,
awake and aware and attentive to Holy Spirit with and in you,
a personal will united with Thy Will Be Done on earth as it is in heaven,
a wellspring of living water,
resurrection Life of Christ within,
a fountain that connects heaven and earth
in those who come to Christ and drink and find rest for their souls,
belong to Christ
now and in the age to come.
What God has joined together no man can set apart
now or in the age to come.
“The two become one flesh…those united with the Lord become one spirit with him” 1 Cor 6:17
“Do you not know that your BODY is a temple of the Holy Spirit WITHIN you, which you have from God” 1 Cor 6:19
“Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit DWELLS IN YOU” 1 Cor 3:16
The Holy Spirit and fire that comes down from heaven out of God into your body makes it possible to be presented to the Lord as a spotless bride NOW and is to come.
“You are God’s Field; you are God’s Building…laid on the Foundation of Christ…the Day will disclose it, because it is revealed with FIRE and the fire will TEST” 1 Cor 3:9-17
Count it all joy for the FULL EFFECT of the testing by fire is knowing God’s Word is trustworthy and true: be perfect, holy, complete and lack nothing in Christ and Christ in you, as your Father is holy and perfect (James 1:2-8)
“For God’s temple is holy, and THAT temple YOU ARE” 1 Cor 3:17b
You are either a part of the Bride or a part of the Harlot.
Your body is either a temple of idols or a house of prayer: a temple filled with the Holy Spirit, fire, glory river of God.
Christ in you is the hope of glory; assurance and substance; nothing is more precious and rich than the glory presence of God; it IS our treasure and power within, in Christ (2 Cor 4:3-15; Ephesians 3:20)
Apart from Christ we can do nothing; in Christ we have the gold refined by fire, white garments and anointed eyes to see (Revelation 3:18).
