O say, can you SEE the Victory? or are you blinded and stuck in the battle between good and evil?
What do you see?
Do you see only what the devil wants you to see, accept and live with: problems, suffering, negativity, ugliness, division, separation, sin, disease, death, disorder?
Or do you see what our Father has prepared for those who love him: “What no eye has seen nor ear heard; nor the heart of man conceived…God reveals to us through the Spirit…Do not receive the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God” 1 Corinthians 2:9-12
I see a new heaven and new earth where righteousness dwells. When the Israelites were going to their promised land, twelve spies were sent to see; ten looked and came back with a negative report, seeing only problems, what was wrong, believing the father of lies who deludes, tricks, deceives, discourages; getting them to distrust what God told them, become disappointed in God, disillusioned about life, give up hope, lose faith in what God was doing, and remain where they were, stuck circling a mountain, never fulfilling the promise of God; never receiving what Christ Jesus died, resurrected, ascended, and was glorified to send us a New Way of living, moving and being OF God when born anew of water and Spirit; no longer a child of the devil but a child of God our Father, the Righteous Judge, the Holy One, the Creator of heaven and earth and the New Heaven and New Earth where righteousness dwells, i.e., where CHRIST DWELLS IN YOU.
Only two of the spies saw the potential, the possibility, the positives, what was right. We begin to SEE Jesus FULFILLED all the laws, prophesies, and WON all the PROMISES OF GOD for us. They saw what God intended for good and ENTERED. The ten who saw the problems never entered.
I invite you to see the Promise of God to us, a new heaven and a new earth where righteousness dwells NOW and is to come. What we are able to see, behold, we become. If you only see what the trickster, deceiver, father of lies, destroyer, robber, killer, adversary, accuser wants you to see, your spiritual eyes are still closed and you are still of Adam whose father is the devil (seems harsh, but true, read 1 John 2:28-29; 3:1-10). “By this it may be seen who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil” (1 John 3:10).
Righteousness comes from RIGHT BEING which comes from being OF the RIGHT SPIRIT; the RIGHTEOUS, Holy, Pure, Glorious, Gracious, Omnipotent, Sovereign Spirit of God SENT TO YOU by COMING TO Christ Jesus, our High Priest forever in the order of Melchizedek, who PRAYS THE FATHER to SEND HIS SPIRIT to you to open your spiritual eyes and enlighten them to see rightly, as Christ sees, to hear the voice of God with your spiritual ears, and spiritually perceive with a redeemed heart.
God leads and teaches the humble-hearted by the Holy Spirit. Angels hearken to the voice of Christ in you, the elemental spirits must bow to the Name above every other name, all unclean or evil spirits must leave as the Holy Spirit prepares the way for The Way, The Truth and The Life of God to move in to your body temple so the glory can return to the temple in you in Christ in God.
You become a new temple of God to inhabit with His Presence; “live in the Spirit like God” (1 Peter 4:6b); “employ your Gift from God” (1 Peter 4:10) for His Body on earth as it is in heaven: flowing with His Spirit, filling and overflowing like a fountain.
Just because the devil is selling lies and half-truths, you don’t have to buy them. Jesus says, “Buy from Me the gold refined by fire (be rich in My glory within you), My white garment to clothe you with Myself (be clothed with righteousness so you can dwell in a NHONE every day of your life) and My eye salve to anoint your eyes that YOU MAY SEE” (Revelation 3:18)
“We thank God and ask to dwell in Christ and Christ in us, in His glory, every day of our lives” (Psalm 27:4) to behold His glory to be changed into His likeness (the image of God’s Glory) from glory to glory (2 Cor 3:18); present in His Presence now and forever (Jude 1:24-25).
“The angel of the LORD encamps me” (Psalm 34:7) “I Jesus send my angel to you” (Revelation 22:16)
O LORD, I love the habitation of thy house [my heart in Christ], and the place where thy glory dwells [Christ in me]” Psalm 26:8
