If God has made us a kingdom, and kings and priests to our God and his Christ (Revelation 1:6; 5:10), then to be heavenly, kingdomly minded is to set our minds on things above (Romans 8:5-9; Colossians 3:1-3) and the things above live in our heart.
Heavenly mindsets: having the mind of Christ in our hearts to do the Will of God on earth as it is in heaven. We receive the kingdom, power and glory of Christ into our innermost spiritual heart; we become kingdom-hearted and kingdom-minded to do the will of God on earth as it is in heaven.
We can’t know the perfect Will of God without knowing the Word. We can’t understand the Word without the Holy Spirit wisdom and revelation of the knowledge of God and his glory.
The Word opens to our understanding when the Holy Spirit reveals what is hidden. The light of the Gospel of the Glory of Christ is hidden to those veiled and blinded by the god of this world: the counterfeit; darkness disguised as light; just enough truth mixed with evil to fool even the elect. This is why we need to be watchful and alert; to stay awake with resurrected, ascended, glorified Jesus with the spiritual gift of discernment of spirits.
“Awake O sleeper, and arise from dead and Christ will give you light”
Only Christ, the Messiah, the Anointed One, the Holy One, can unveil us, to behold his glory, to be changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit (2 Cor 3:12-18). Without the Spirit of God there is no transformation.
It is the glory of God to conceal; it is the glory of kings to search and find.
“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all theses things will be added unto you”
The kingdom of God is righteousness and peace and joy in the Spirit, in our spirit and soul and body. God joins our spirit to Holy Spirit, removes the attachments and ungodly soul ties and bondage to elemental spirits of the universe, so we can yoke our soul to Christ Jesus: take his mind, heart and will to do the Will of the Father on earth as it is in heaven. We learn in intimate union with our Christ, who is Messiah for all, but also individual and personal, and Christ becomes our “all in all” when we come to Jesus, so Christ can come in us.
The antithesis of having the mind of Christ, is to have your mind aligned with the antichrist spirits that are in this world (1 John 2:18-20).
Jesus taught, “God is light and in him there is no darkness at all” and “the evil one has no part in me”
To be filled, spirit and soul and body, with the Holy Spirit is to be filled with Christ Spirit and substance so the evil one can have no part in you.
Jesus says, “You are the light of the world” “Awake, arise and Christ will give you light” “Arise and shine; for my light is in you and my glory is rising upon you” “My fire surrounds you and my glory I put within you”
We need both the Word and the Spirit; the Word is both life and Spirit to those who make it our daily Bread of Life; and the Spirit of God opens the Word to our understanding and revelation, revealing Christ Jesus to the spirit of the mind of our innermost heart.
Christ in you is the hope of glory; the living hope of God in us; hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life, a river of water of life to take without price.
The fire of God’s judgment is under the old covenant; the Holy Spirit and fire of God, the baptism of Jesus, dissolves the old covenant; forms the new covenant of Jesus’ perfect, holy blood united with His Father eternally, in you, when you come to Christ Jesus, trust his Word, return to our Father, receive the spirit of sonship and celebrate the Lamb’s Marriage; celebrate being set free in the Son and His Life in you!
“In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you” John 14:20
The Father and the Lamb are One in the glory; married eternally so we can come and partake of the Marriage Supper and partake of the Word and the Spirit, food and drink indeed, to become what we eat!
now and is to come;
from grace to grace
and glory to glory.
