What do you reflect? the fallen world mind as your soul is downcast? or does Christ’s Light shine out from your heart?
Who do you reflect? the fallen spirit of lucifer or the resurrection Spirit of God in Christ?
“Now the Lord is Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom”
“For Freedom Christ has set you free”
“If the Son has set you Free you are Free indeed”
The old heavens and earth require an external sun, moon and stars for light to see. The new heaven and new earth do not have to have an external sun as the Son of Righteousness has risen on the inside, the new Day has dawned within; the morning star of Christ risen within our heart to see, hear and perceive spiritually from the heart of God who overshadows our human heart with His fire and glory presence. The King of Glory comes in as we enthrone Him in our heart and life; worship God in Spirit and truth, for God is Spirit in those who believe and conquer unbelief to sit with Christ (Revelation 3:21). “NOW the Lord is the Spirit”
“Abide in Christ and Christ in you”
The branches reflect the Vine and cannot be the image and likeness of anything other than their Vine. If you don’t reflect the Vine, you are not really connected to the Vine, or maybe just have an intellectual knowing about the Vine without direct experience knowing The Vine. The sap of the Holy Spirit also resurrects the branch when the Vine is resurrected and glorified. “I am the Vine and you are the branches” ~Jesus the Christ of God
You don’t die and go to heaven to be grafted on the Vine; hope deferred makes the heart sick. You have to let the old vine of mixed good and evil from satan die, be burned root to branch by the Holy Fire of God, and resurrect with Christ into His Life on His Vine; a desire fulfilled is a tree of life (Proverbs 13:12, 19). “Now the Lord is the Spirit” and comes down to live, move and have Christ’s being in those who open the door when he knocks.
“Note then the kindness and severity of God: severity towards those who have fallen, but God’s kindness to you provided you CONTINUE in his kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off. And even the others, if they DO NOT PERSIST IN THEIR UNBELIEF, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again” Romans 11:22-23
He is Spirit now, He was Jesus, He will come as King of kings and Lord of lords with a sharp sword, the Word in his mouth; the Father’s wrath against those who give their mind over to the beast system and do evil against God’s children.
“Grace to you and peace from him who IS and who was and who is to come AND from the seven spirits who are before his throne AND from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the first-born of the dead, and the ruler of kings. To him who LOVES US and has FREED US from our sins by his blood AND made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father…He comes to you in clouds of glory and fire light…you see the glory and you change into His likeness” (Revelation 1:4-6; 2 Corinthians 3:18; 1 John 3:1-10; Jude 1:24)
Those in Christ are the priesthood of believers. Those led by the Holy Spirit are the sons of God; those led by lucifer’s dualistic system are the children of wrath, disobedient, rebellious (prey of rebel lion, belief in plurality of truth from satan’s tree of the mixed knowledge of good and evil, double-minded, devoid of the Holy Spirit, the god of this world blinding minds, world religions veiling the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ).
“What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience the vessels of wrath made for destruction, in order to MAKE KNOWN the riches of his glory for the vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory, EVEN US…’Those who were not my people I will call ‘my people’ and her who was not beloved I will call ‘my beloved’…called ‘sons of the living God’.” Romans 9:19-26
“As for the man who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not for disputes over opinions” Romans 14:1
“God is the Source of your life in Christ Jesus whom GOD MADE our wisdom, our righteousness and sanctification and redemption” 1 Corinthians 1:30
“Behold, I make ALL things new” (Revelation 21:5; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
