I don’t know when Jesus will physically walk with us again
but I do know our spiritual inheritance is now and forever
as Jesus went back to our God and Father and sent “another Counselor” the Holy Spirit — the Spirit of the Lord — the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding — the Spirit of Counsel and Power — the Spirit of Knowledge — the Spirit of the fear of the Lord: reverential awe
and in every area of our life, the Spirit is more than enough
and God’s Spirit at work in us can do greater than all we could ask or think!
“According to the riches of his glory we can be strengthened with power through his Spirit in our inner spirit man…Christ dwell in our hearts through faith…rooted and grounded in Love, having the power to comprehend the breadth, length, height and depth, and to KNOW the Love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, to be FILLED with all the fullness of God. NOW to him who by the power at work within us is able to do FAR MORE, exceedingly abundantly more than all we ask or think, to Him be the glory” Ephesians 3:14-21 (paraphrased)
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who HAS BLESSED US with EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING in the heavenly places” Ephesians 1:3
“And He makes us spiritually alive, when we were spiritually dead through the trespasses and sins following the ways of the world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is NOW at work in the sons of disobedience…by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. BUT GOD! who is rich in mercy, grace and glory, out of His great Love, made us alive TOGETHER WITH CHRIST (by grace we have been saved), and RAISED UP WITH CHRIST, and made us SIT WITH HIM in the heavenly places WITH CHRIST” Ephesians 2:1-6 (paraphrased)
We conquer our worldly conditioning to overcome WITH CHRIST! We can do nothing apart from Christ, but in intimate relationship ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD!
We make the choice to stop following the ways of the world, the way that seems right to man that leads to destruction, and follow The Way in Truth that leads to Life and Life Abundant: the fullness of Life that is fullness of God through the Spirit who is the Lord! We stop getting our information from the prince of the power of air (a mixture of lies and truth) who counterfeits EVERYTHING of Christ, and get our information from the Source of Life through the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, “My sheep hear my Voice” and we come to hear with the opened ear of our heart, come to see with the enlightened eye of the heart and come to spiritually perceive to turn EVERYTHING to God to be healed.
“Not all who are descended from Israel belong to Israel, and not all are children of Abraham just because they are his physical descendants…it is NOT the children of the FLESH [physical] who are the children of God, but children of the promise [spiritual]” Romans 9:6-8
“For he is not a real Jew who is one outwardly, nor is true circumcision external and physical. He is a Jew who is one inwardly, and real circumcision is a matter of the heart, SPIRITUAL and NOT LITERAL” Romans 2:28-29
“Now before FAITH came, we were confined under the law, kept under restraint until faith should be REVEALED. The law WAS our custodian UNTIL CHRIST CAME…now that faith HAS COME, we are no longer under a custodian; for IN CHRIST JESUS we are ALL SONS OF GOD through faith. For as many of us are BAPTIZED into Christ have PUT ON CHRIST. There is neither Jew nor Gentile…neither male nor female; for we are all ONE IN CHRIST JESUS. And IF you are CHRIST’S then you are Abraham’s offspring, HEIRS according to promise [co-heirs WITH CHRIST]” Galatians 3:23-29
We are co-heirs with/in Christ of a new heaven and new earth where righteousness dwells. Do not worry, fret or concern yourself about the physical; give every care to Jesus and he gives you the kingdom of God and his righteousness and ALL things are added unto you. The Word made flesh in you does not pass away; the old heaven and earth in you passes away (old mindsets, old strongholds/bondage/yokes of the elemental spirits over you, old traditions of men and demons Colossians 2:8). Christ in you is a new heaven and earth; a house of prayer; the field of God; a new city of light, a new temple of God containing his Holy Spirit and glory!
“Baptized into Christ” includes both water and Spirit/Fire of God. John the Baptist baptized with water but told us Jesus would baptize us with Holy Spirit and fire. Jesus told us we “must be born again, born anew from above OF GOD, by water and Spirit. The Spirit and Bride say, “Come…thirst, desire and take the water of life without price” Jesus said, “Wait in the old city until you are endued with Power from on high” God poured his Spirit upon all flesh and they received tongues of fire and transformed into Christ’s hands, feet and mouth to spread His Gospel. Is the external church not transforming because it is not asking for the Baptism from Jesus of Holy Spirit and fire and not HEARING to come and take the river of water of life from the throne for true transformation? Are they waiting for a physical event and neglecting the spiritual transformation? Doesn’t Jesus come back for a spotless bride, filled with the oil of Holy Spirit?

“the slippery slope of growing churches but not the kingdom” ~John from True Discernment
growing the physical, but not the spiritual
growing dependence on philosophies, elemental spirits of the universe, rituals, traditions, or doctrines instead of dependence on God through Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit
