Before the finished work of the Cross of Jesus, the only thing we could count on was God’s mercy new every morning, but after the death, burial, resurrection, ascension, glorification and sending of the Holy Spirit and fire of God to believers, we can count on God’s riches of grace and riches of glory new every morning, the wisdom and power to change everything for the good in Christ, from the dominion of darkness into the Light of Christ in you, transferring into the kingdom of the beloved Son for those who have eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart transformed to spiritually perceive, understand, and receive all the fullness of God when we KNOW the love of Christ. The length and breadth and height and depth of the Love sent from God, poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, creates a new heaven and a new earth in your spiritual heart: a new heavenly awareness and a new earthly awareness of the knowledge of God and knowledge of his glory!
What gets me up in the morning after suffering a great tragedy and its aftermath? I choose to take the River of water of life as my new life, new every morning; sent from the throne of grace and glory; full access from Christ Jesus. Now the Lord is the Spirit; Holy Spirit is God working in us greater than we could ask or think or imagine; no longer “I” who live, but Christ who lives in me (Galatians 2:20). I die to the old heavens and old earth daily, so this new heavenly awareness can continue to enter into my earthly awareness, here and now, knowing the Way (through the fire, floods, suffering, wilderness, desert, shadows, valleys), the Truth and the Life of God in Christ; knowing Christ Jesus is now in the Father as I am in Christ and Christ is in me; knowing the former things have passed away, I consciously let them go daily, to behold the new has come (2 Corinthians 16-18). Selah.
I am a new creature in Christ, the profound mystery of being made one with the Spirit of God with Christ in you; equally yoked with the One Husband as a pure bride in Christ married to the One Spirit of God who is holy, perfect, righteous, pure, spotless, blameless, irreproachable, unmatchable, powerful Spirit of Love, Sound Mind, Pure Heart, Will of God our Father, Spirit of Holiness, Spirit of Life, eternal, increasing with no end; we reap the harvest of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, the Kingdom of God, found when God finds us broken open, ready, willing, ripe, humble and receptive to giving it all to Jesus to receive all the fullness of God of Christ in you; a river of continuous new life, a tree of life bearing only the spiritual fruit of Christ: righteousness, light without any darkness at all, pure holy love as God defines it, and the Spirit of God to cast out every other spirit of the old heavens, old earth and old human made in fallen Adam’s image and likeness.
Jesus was the LAST Adam, so NOW when we come to Christ, yoke, learn and rest in our Heavenly Father, his Spirit can live and move in us and through us, as we allow Christ’s government in us, led by the Holy Spirit into the new heaven and new earth where righteousness dwells. Abba Father, thank you for restoration of all things; thank you for a new heaven and new earth; all for Your Glory! now and forever! Amen. Hallelujah!
