He came to me in clouds,
I couldn’t see the sun.
I despaired of life,
the Word brought me to His Life and Spirit.
I had no faith,
so He brought evidence and substance of His Faith in Our God and Father.
I was helpless and hopeless,
so Christ Substance brought eager expectation of good and very good things now and is to come.
I felt unloveable,
so He gave me Love, for He gave me Himself who is Love: my First Love before the foundation of the world.
I felt unworthy, bad, not good enough, not enough,
so He reminded me of what He did on the Cross to negate all I had done and not done.
He manifested Himself and spoke Truth, “Come to Me, you who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you Rest”
I had tried EVERYTHING the world offers and it ALL fell short.
I turned to Jesus,
repented (I changed my mind about God and He changed my heart),
and returned to the Father
and He gave me sonship,
the only relationship that truly heals, restores, rebuilds, renews and regenerates.
Yoked with Christ I learn directly from the Holy Spirit,
through the fires of trials,
through the floods of the world’s plurality of ways,
wading through false religion, counterfeit spirituality,
and the ways that seem right to a man, to an Adam, to the world that lead to destruction, death and theft of our inheritance in Christ of God.
Holy Spirit and fire burn the chaff, dross, rust, weeds, false teachings, doctrines of men and demons, anything founded on anything other than the Rock of ages, the Christ, as our sure foundation that grows, builds, enlarges, expands, increases, multiplies what cannot be burned or shaken or moved.
The Word is life and Spirit, trustworthy and true, faithful, eternal, sharper than a two-edged sword, the Sword of the Spirit that never fails, cuts away what is not of Christ, brings the spoils of war to the righteous, always Victorious, always fighting for us, working in us both the Power and Wisdom of God: more powerful than anything and pure, peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, certain, and sincere (1 Cor 1:24; James 3:17).
Jesus the ascended, glorified Christ, comes in the clouds to help you; He brings his holy angel army as King of kings and Lord of lords and battles for you until you can CONQUER and be lifted up to be seated with Christ in heavenly places, resting in our Father as His Holy Spirit and fire live in you on earth as it is in heaven (Revelation 3:21).
“Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you; therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are those who wait for him. Yea, you shall weep no more. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when he hears it, he will answer you. And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself any more, but your EYES WILL SEE your Teacher. And YOUR EARS WILL HEAR” Isaiah 30:18-21
Jesus will come to you in the storm, in the midst of circumstances, in the clouds; in the Eye of the Storm, the Peace of His Presence will come to you. You will say, “Be gone!” to everything not Christ when you see Christ to become like Him (Isaiah 30:22). Pay attention, hear His Voice and open the door of your soul (heart, mind, will) and let Him come in and minister to you, feed you and quench your thirst as you grow in intimate relationship with Christ in you until you CONQUER, overcome the world, be lifted up with Christ to be seated in heavenly places with God (Ephesians 2:1-6; Revelation 3:20-21).
“I give thanks to God ALWAYS because the grace of God which is given to you IN Christ Jesus so in EVERY WAY you are enriched IN HIM with all speech and all knowledge–CONFIRMED in you–so you are no longer lacking in any spiritual gift (1 Cor 12:4-11), as you WAIT for the REVEALING of our Lord Jesus Christ who SUSTAINS YOU to the end, guiltless in the DAY of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is FAITHFUL; calls you into fellowship WITH CHRIST” 1 Cor 1:4-9
“Come to Me and YOKE and LEARN from Me; ease and light to rest in My God and Father” ~Jesus
“He will give you rain [River of Water of Life from the throne of God] for the seed [Word of God] to produce rich and plenteous Fruit of the Spirit” (Isaiah 30:23) from the One Vine of Christ [from the perfect, holy root] that connects heaven and earth in you. “And upon every lofty mountain [Christ in God] and every high hill [Christ in you] there will be brooks running with Living Water [Christ Spirit and fire] when the twin towers [of pride and ego defenses of the old man: Adamic heritage in you] FALL and are replaced by the Strong Man of Christ in you and the Strong Tower of the Spirit of God in you [the heritage of Jesus in you]” Isaiah 30:25
“Moreover the light of the moon [our inward soul that has no intrinsic light of its own apart from God who created us in Their image and likeness] will be AS the light of the sun [Son of Righteousness!], and the light of the sun [our spirit] will be SEVENFOLD [complete in Christ the Son of God], as the light of SEVEN DAYS [rest in the Light of God; his Spirit and fire completely united with your human spirit as One], in the DAY when the LORD binds up your hurt and heals your wounds” Isaiah 30:26
Therefore PAY ATTENTION when clouds come, storms come, floods come, fire of trials come raging; listen and HEAR the knock at the door of your awareness and let the glory of Christ come in and set His holy fire around you as a wall of protection and comfort of His Holy Spirit and His Lamb of God shines in your darkness UNTIL the DAY dawns and the morning star RISES in your heart and you go leaping like a new born calf from the stall. (2 Peter 1:16-19; Malachi 3:1-7; 4:1-3)
Awake and receive the Light of Christ in adversity, trials, storms or you may miss the day of your visitation, that when you conquer, becomes a HABITATION of God within you!
