Maturity in Christ

Abide in Me, and I in you”  ~Jesus the Christ, the Messiah

(Fill This Temple: written by Randolph Barnwell (2004); Produced by Riaan Pretorius; Lead Vocals by Moira Saker, Bruce Eaves and Julienne Bartleson)

“When we sing “Fill This Temple”, our cry is not for God to fill a building made with human hands, but to fill us, His sons with the fullness of nature and character. The ‘temple’ referred to in this song is not a reference to the physical structure or building in which we gather, but a reference to us, the living stones, sons of God, who like Christ was, are exact representations of His glory – His character, nature and essence. The temple can be personal (1 Cor. 3:16) or corporate (i.e. local church or city church) (2 Cor. 6:16). Scriptural Foundation for this Song: Heb. 12:22,23 “But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect” 1 Pet 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” Isaiah 60:1-3 “Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. “For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the Lord will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, And kings to the brightness of Your rising.” Haggai 2:9 ‘The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘and in this place I will give peace,’ declares the Lord of hosts.” 2 Chron. 7:1-3 “Now when Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the Lord filled the house. The priests could not enter into the house of the Lord because the glory of the Lord filled the Lord’s house. All the sons of Israel, seeing the fire come down and the glory of the Lord upon the house, bowed down on the pavement with their faces to the ground, and they worshiped and gave praise to the Lord, saying, ‘Truly He is good, truly His lovingkindness is everlasting.’ ” 1 Cor. 3:16 “Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you”. 2 Cor. 6:16b “For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” The audio, lyrics and chords of this song may be freely downloaded from my website: The communication, reproduction and/or distribution of this song in any form is permissible and encouraged, provided that no monetary profit is gained.

Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? For God’s temple is holy, and that temple YOU ARE” 1 Cor 3:16-17

He who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with him…Do you not know that your BODY is a temple of the Holy Spirit WITHIN you, which you have FROM GOD? So glorify God IN YOUR BODY” 1 Cor 6:17-20

Present your BODIES as a LIVING sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your SPIRITUAL worship. Do not be conformed to the world but be TRANSFORMED by the renewal of Christ’s Mind in you, that you may PROVE what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect” Romans 12:1-2

In Christ, “those who were not my people I will call “my people,’ and her who was not beloved I will call ‘my beloved.’ And they will be called ‘sons of the living God.’ ” Romans 9:25

NEITHER worship the Father on this mountain or in Jerusalem. You worship what you DO NOT KNOW; in Christ we worship what we KNOW [knowledge of God as Spirit and knowledge of His glory: the Way the Truth and the Life: the Light, the Love and the Spirit of God: ascended, glorified Christ]…the hour is coming AND NOW IS, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. GOD IS SPIRIT, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth”  ~Jesus the Christ, the Holy One

NOW the Lord is Spirit…and we all, with unveiled face [veil removed by Christ], beholding the glory of the Lord, are CHANGED into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this COMES FROM the Lord who is the SPIRIT” 2 Cor 3:12-18

For it is THE GOD who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ who has shone in OUR HEARTS to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of CHRIST. We have this TREASURE in our earthen vessels to show the transcendent POWER belongs to God…the life of Jesus may also be MANIFESTED in our mortal flesh…raises us…brings us into His presence [glory]…as grace extends to more and more people it increases our thanksgiving to the glory of God” 2 Cor 4:4-15

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 the flesh is flesh, and that which is born OF THE SPIRIT is spirit” Jesus, the Living One

But you are NOT IN THE FLESH, you are IN THE SPIRIT, if IN FACT the Spirit of God DWELLS IN YOU…he will give life to your mortal bodies ALSO through his Spirit who DWELLS IN YOU…all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God” Romans 8:9-17

Make the Word of God FULLY known, the mystery hidden for ages and generations, BUT NOW made manifest…God makes known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the GLORY of this mystery, which is CHRIST IN YOU…present every man MATURE IN CHRIST” Colossians 1:25-29

Now to Him who IS ABLE to keep you from falling [short of the glory] and to present you without blemish before the presence of His glory with rejoicing, to the only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time AND NOW and for ever. Amen” Jude 1:24-25

For in him the WHOLE FULLNESS of the Godhead dwells bodily, and you have come to FULLNESS OF LIFE IN HIM, who is the Head” Colossians 2:9-10

Stand MATURE and FULLY ASSURED in ALL the will of God” Colossians 4:12b

Walk in the Spirit, by faith through his glorious riches of grace lavished upon us; set your mind on the things of the Spirit; we are MORE than conquerors through God who loves us, raised up with Christ, and made to sit with God our Father in heavenly places IN Christ Jesus.

Today when you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts…Let us then strive to enter His rest, that we no longer fall…let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace” Hebrews 4:1-16

Come to Me and I will give you rest. Yoke to Me; unite with Me; learn from Me for I am gentle and humble-hearted and you will find rest. I am ease and light. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life of God; the Kingdom of God: righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit; the Power of God as the Holy Spirit; and the Glory of God as Christ in you as Christ is in the Father”  ~Jesus, the Righteous One of God

In that day you will know that I am in my Father and you in me and I in you”  ~Jesus the Beloved of God

NOW is the time; today is always THE DAY until you turn, repent, return to our God and Father through the finished work of the Cross of Christ, and the Holy Spirit is sent to live with and in you forever.

I consecrate Myself that they may be consecrated in truth…that they may all be one…that they may BE IN US…The glory which Thou hast given Me I have given to them…I in them and Thou in Me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world will know that You sent Me and LOVE THEM…be with Me where I am, to BEHOLD MY GLORY…Your Love in them and I IN THEM” John 17:19-23
