There are far too many taking Christ’s Name who have never died to Adam’s fallen nature within; taken the Name “Christian” in name only, with no inner transformation by the Holy Spirit and fire sent to believers.
Check yourselves; examine yourselves; test yourselves; have you taken the name without the power? information without transformation by the Holy Spirit, is just information; transformation by the Holy Spirit and fire of God is Christ in you.
“For men will be lovers of self…rather than lovers of God, holding the form of religion but denying the power” 2 Timothy 3:1-5
vain glory is glorifying the self, the fallen Adamic nature, with its twin towers of pride and ego
Jesus gives us the glory our Father gave him so we can be perfectly one with our Abba Father…to be with Christ where he is, to behold his glory…Jesus makes known to us the Name that the love which the Father loves Christ Jesus may be in us, and Christ in us (John 17:22-26).
Jesus gives us a new Name; instead of forsaken and desolate we are “Married” and “His Delight in you” “Christ in you” God’s glory in us
We come to Christ, yoke with him, unite with his Spirit, the same Spirit that raised him from the dead; the same Spirit in our Father; the same Spirit that God sends believers so we can KNOW the truth and the truth sets us free; so we can KNOW the new life, become and live the Word in the Spirit. We learn directly from Christ, the Holy One anointing that teaches us everything that is true with no lies. Religions today are all mixtures; in Christ and Christ in you is pure Spirit, holy and righteous and perfect; apart from Christ you can do nothing of God.
Do not be deceived; everything is a shadow but the substance of God is Christ (Colossians 2:17).
“Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Of his own will he brought us forth by the Word of Truth that we should be a NEW kind of first fruits creature” James 1:16-18
“For these whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the first-born among MANY brethren. And those he predestined he also calls, justifies and also glorifies…gives us ALL THINGS with Christ” Romans 8:29-39
I am astounded that so many churches I visit are justifying sin instead of yielding to the Holy Spirit and fire of God to be justified in Christ by the Blood, Water and Spirit of God.
“Because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth. For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing; not knowing you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind and naked. Therefore I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire…white garments to clothe you…and salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see” Revelation 3:16-18
Be clothed with Christ and come into your right Mind; the holy, righteous Mind of Christ. Receive and yield to the Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus to be able to see and sense by the Holy Spirit training God’s faculties in you; your heart purified as pure gold when the fire of God removes the impurities in you from living in the world, born of fallen Adam’s heritage, being fathered by the devil resulting in destroyed relationships and lives. The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy lives; Jesus comes to give you life and life abundant.
Be born anew from above by the Water of Life and Spirit of Life; Christ in you; no longer of Adam’s flesh, but of Christ’s flesh, inheriting the Kingdom of God: righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit; to live, move and have your being in the Spirit, beholding the glory, being changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another.
“For I have given them the Words which you gave me, and they have RECEIVED them and KNOW in truth that I came from thee…I am praying for them; I am not praying for the world but for those whom thou hast given me, for they are thine; all mine are thine; and thine are mine, and I AM GLORIFIED IN THEM” John 17:8-10
Christ in you is the assurance and substance (hope) of glory in you.
“Abide in me, and I in you” John 15:4
