the power that corrupts is self-serving, self-focused, self-appointed, selling soul to counterfeit light of lucifer for fame, success, money, sex; sacrificing all that is good, true, right for self promotion; gain the world but lose your soul; downward spiral when give soul to gain worldly power; slippery slope into human sacrifice, calloused heart (cremation of care ceremony for world leaders to not care about human beings to join the dark agenda), blinded by darkness to see only lust for power, greed, or sexual perversion
God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie (give up glory for images; give up Reality of God for platonic ideals)…given up to dishonorable passions…given up to a base mind and to improper conduct…faithless, heartless, ruthless…they not only go against God’s decree but approve of those who practice the unspeakable things done in secret (Romans 1:24-32; Ephesians 5:11-12).
the Power that transforms is the gospel of God (Romans 1:16)
the Cross of Jesus was THE defining moment in history; the turning point for all humanity; the foundation upon which all of God stands; in the fullness of time, both time and space were changed permanently
the curtain was torn bottom to top; the curse, sin, death and falling short of the glory were removed for those who come out of the world system to the Living Holy One of God: resurrected, ascended, glorified Christ Jesus
the cursed tree of the knowledge of good and evil has the “first Adam” forever dead and cursed; do not worship at this cursed tree which is outside of Christ
Come to Christ, the new heaven on earth, the kingdom of God, on earth as it is in heaven, where righteousness dwells. Righteousness dwells IN CHRIST and we come to live, move and have our being IN CHRIST; when we receive the Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus, Christ can come and live in our spirit and soul and body. We are transformed by the renewing mind of Christ; reformed into the image and likeness of God; redeemed by His Blood; sanctified wholly, spirit and soul and body, by His Spirit and fire of Life.
We come to Christ, yoke, learn and find rest for our heart, mind and will in God. We begin to only identify with Jesus; unite with Christ: become one Spirit with God to hear and be led by the Holy Spirit. We are not taken up with other things that hinder our perfect oneness with our Father through the Son by the Power of the Holy Spirit; we are caught up with Christ in God so we can walk in Spirit, walk in Light, walk in Kingdom grace and glory!
“If then you have been raised WITH Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hid with Christ in God” Colossians 3:1-3
