The Word is Faithful and True, Righteous judgment, fire Light, a sharp two-edged Sword of the Spirit in our mouth that directs the heavenly host army in battle against all that is against Christ; the Word of God made flesh, the King of kings and Lord of lords over ALL: Christ given all power and authority in heaven and on earth, and shared with born again believers as co-heirs of the entire inheritance of God with Christ in you. (Revelation 19:11-16; Colossians 1:25-29; Hebrews 4:12-13)
The Word is faithful; the Word is life and Spirit that is Faith-full, powerful, living, active, cuts to the intention of the heart, and separates the “sheep from the goats” so you can kick the goats out of your field to keep them from eating everything of Christ, leaving only Christ in you.
We clean house (our body) and continuously refill with the Holy Spirit and fire of God to refresh, revive, and reform Christ in you, renewing mind, heart and will of Christ daily, to keep the thief from stealing, killing, destroying, sending seven worse unclean spirits to take up house in you as host (Matthew 12:44-45; Luke 11:25-26). Instead we take by FAITH and receive the seven spirits from the throne of God and the Lamb, to fill us with holy fire and oil and eyes to SEE what God is doing on the earth to join with our Father and his Christ through the POWER of the Holy Spirit, the River of Water of Life to BE a tree of life on the Vine of Christ, with Christ Fruit.
One of the nine gifts of the Spirit is Faith (1 Corinthians 12:9); one of the nine fruit of the Spirit is Faith-full-ness (Galatians 5:22).
Without Faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6) for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
“Seek FIRST the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you” Matthew 6:33
“Do not be deceived. Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights” James 1:16-18
Return to your First Love and CONQUER the unbelief of this world and be granted to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God (Revelation 2:1-7).
Faith is trusting in advance what will only make sense in reverse (Philip Yancey).
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, BUT a desire FULFILLED is a tree of life” Proverbs 13:12
“In Christ the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have come to FULLNESS of life IN HIM, who is the Head of ALL rule and authority…in Him you were ALSO RAISED with him through FAITH in the working of God…made ALIVE together with him” Colossians 2:9-23
“They come to life, and reign WITH Christ… Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they are the priests of God and of Christ, and they reign with him a thousand years [equal to ONE DAY: the eternal new DAY in Christ and Christ in you]” Revelation 20:4-6
THE CROSS gives ALL this to you; no more hope deferred but TAKE the fulfilled promises of God BY FAITH in the working of God: the Holy Spirit and fire sent to born again believers.
Faith is TAKING what is unseen, with conviction to SEE the evidence of the unseen and the ASSURANCE of things hoped for: Christ in you, the Word made flesh in you; the glory of God in you, the Presence come to live in your body and soul and spirit to make you God’s Habitation: new wineskin filled with the new wine of Holy Spirit and fire, the River of Water of Life, bright with light, and love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness, kindness, patience, self-control and faithfulness so you can give the gifts you have been given: FAITH, words of wisdom, words of knowledge, healing, working of miracles, prophesy, discernment of spirits, tongues and interpretation of tongues.
Take by faith through grace ALL that Christ Jesus won for those who belong to him: born again believers of God through the Water of Life and the Spirit of Life sent to make us new temples of God, brides, filled with the Holy Spirit and fire, the glory of God returned to his temple: Christ in us is where righteousness dwells; making our bodies the dwelling place of a new heaven and a new earth so that we carry the kingdom of the beloved Son and his river, to flow out of our hearts as living water (John 7:37-39; Revelation 22:17; John 3:3-15; 1 Cor 3:16; 6:17-20; 2 Peter 3:13; .
