Until we are freed from the bondage of this world and world religions and counterfeit spirituality that offer a “different Christ,” we are not free to choose to be present in God’s Presence; living, moving, and having our be-ing in the new city of Christ in you, a new state of being in Spirit, and renewal of the sheep nations of God: rejuvenation, revitalization, restoration, and regeneration in God our Father in you, through Christ, by the Holy Spirit.
In Christ we are made new creatures of the new creation after the likeness of Christ: the image of God, first born from the dead, pre-eminent in EVERYTHING; the first fruit of the Cross. We die to all of Adam with his twisted way of thinking, bury our past experiences that formed a skewed way of seeing, to receive Christ (new Way of Thinking like God) to be filled with all the fullness of God (seeing as Christ sees to be changed into his image and likeness from glory to glory).
Because of the Cross, we are free to choose all the faith, hope and love of Christ; every good endowment and every perfect gift coming down from the Father of lights without variation or shadow of change, brought forth by the Word of Truth to BE a new kind of first-fruits creation (James 1:17-18).
We leave the types and shadows of the old covenant for the substance and Spirit of Christ in God of the new covenant. We sustain our new being in Christ by drinking the Spirit and eating the Word; life and Spirit of God.
When the light of Christ comes alive in you, it is time to arise and shine; when the glory of Christ in you is realized or come to be KNOWN, it is time to arise and go proclaim the message that God gives you; what you came to this world to be and do out of knowing God and his glory, our true being with Christ; apart from him we can do nothing.
“It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives,” moves and has His Being in me, with me, and for me: the two become one new flesh. The old Adam has passed away, the former things of Adam have died and been buried with Jesus, behold, the new of Christ HAS COME. Come to the New of Christ and be born again of God in the Water of Life and Spirit of Life which is the Word of Life, the Word of Truth, even the Spirit of Truth that sets you free to be who God created you to be: his image and likeness with the First Born Assembly, the First Fruits kind with Christ in you.
We daily die to the past and resurrect with Christ to the new dawn of the eternal Day and the morning star rises in our heart to arise and shine anew to be led by the Spirit, in the Spirit; present in the Presence.
