In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made through him. In Christ is life, the light of life, shining in the darkness that can never overcome the true light that enlightens those who awaken from spiritual sleep, arise from the spiritual death of fallen Adam, and receives the Light only the Christ of God can give, to be filled with the Spirit of Life (John 1:1-9; Ephesians 5:14).
“The words that I speak to you are life and Spirit” ~Jesus
Jesus is the Word made flesh; we enter Christ through the broken body of the last Adam, share in his suffering and when we have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who calls you to his glory in Christ, will Himself restore, establish, strengthen and settle you. To him be dominion for ever and ever. Amen” (1 Peter 5:10-11). Christ brings his ascended body and glorified Spirit alive in us; quickens, activates, endows, gifts, equips and sends us as God sent Jesus.
God gives us the spirit of sonship; wait until you are adopted as sons of God, the redemption of your body (Romans 8:23). Wait until you are clothed with power from on high: Holy Spirit and fire baptism, then be led forth in joy, go forth in grace and peace and truth and life, in Spirit.
The Holy Spirit reminds us of all Jesus taught; the Spirit brings the Word to life, reveals the Living Christ through the Word; makes the Word flesh in us as we daily hear, read, write, reflect, share, meditate, drink, ingest, pray and chew on the meat of the Word.
We hear the Word with our heart-ears opened by the Holy Spirit, to do the Words we hear, inspired and revealed by the Holy Spirit, to see the light of the glory of Christ with our heart-eyes opened by the Holy Spirit to be changed into Christ image and likeness; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit!
“Now the Lord is the Spirit” 2 Corinthians 3:17
“I will pray the Father and he will give you the Spirit to dwell with and in you” ~Jesus
“What do you see?” Amos 8:2
“You have seen well, for I am watching over My Word to perform it” Jeremiah 1:12
“Come and see” ~Jesus
Christ unveils the Word so we can eat of it to become what we eat! We ingest the Word, his life and Spirit, every day to stay in intimate connection of Revelation 3:20, “we hear his Voice, he comes in and eats with you and you with him” and when we conquer unbelief we are seated soul and spirit united with Christ in heavenly places as he is seated with our Father. In the spiritual realm of Christ there is no time nor space; in the glory realm of Christ there is only union with Christ who is in union with our God and Father.
“The unfolding of Thy Words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple” Psalm 119:130
“My heart stands in awe of Thy Words. I rejoice at Your Words like one who finds a great treasure” Psalm 119:161-162
“How sweet are Thy Words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
“Come to Me and drink of Me and you will have rivers of living water flowing from you” ~Jesus
“Every one who thirsts come to the waters…come and eat…hearken diligently to Me and eat what is Good…come to Me and hear, that your soul may live” Isaiah 55:1-3
“The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come…thirst…desire…take the water of life without price” Revelation 22:17
We eat of the Word and drink of the Spirit of Christ to allow his Words to be made flesh in us; life and Spirit of Christ in us.
As Christ is now, so are we in this world. As we think in our heart, so are we. As we believe, so are we; have Faith. It is done unto us, as we believe the Word, instead of the world! The lies of this world are replaced by the Truth of the Word! We turn from minds focused on the problems of fallen Adam, to have the mind, heart and will of Christ in Spirit, as we yoke our soul to Christ Jesus, and ask and receive the Holy Spirit to live, move and have his being in us, making us a new temple of God where righteousness dwells, bearing the fruits of righteousness. The kingdom of God within is righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
The Word is Faithful and True, Righteous, the Sword of the Spirit; holy angel armies led by the Word going forth and performing the Will of God, fulfilling the plans and purposes of God, on earth as it is in heaven (Revelation 19:11-16).
“Bless the LORD, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do His Word, hearkening to the Voice of His Word” Psalm 103:20
Jesus emptied himself of his divinity, to fill himself with humanity, die to the heritage of fallen Adam, so we could empty ourselves of humanity to partake of the divine nature in Christ and Christ in you.
“Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways” Job 22:28
“Thy Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” Psalm 119:105
The Spirit of Christ is upon you, when the Holy One has anointed you, to bring good tidings, heal, set free, comfort the mourning, give the oil of gladness, a mantle of praise, beauty for ashes, and proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor…clothed with righteousness…a watered garden of righteousness and praise (Isaiah 61:1-11).
The old heaven and earth pass away but the Word of God never passes away! Thy Name and Thy Word are exalted above everything of this world (Psalm 138:2 RSV).
“Let it be done unto me according to Your Word” Luke 1:38
