“For by grace you are saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God” Ephesians 2:8
You can’t save yourself; you can’t purify yourself or refine yourself by fire; you can’t make yourself white as snow, but Jesus can and will, ands lives forever more to do this and even greater things for those who ask and receive. In Christ your floor is the open ceiling of a new heaven and new earth where righteousness dwells in Christ, in you.
Salvation is the open Door to our Father in Heaven. Jesus is the Door. Jesus is Salvation. Jesus is the Grace and Glory of God. In Christ Jesus we are as Christ is in this world: in Spirit and in Truth, the Life of God expressing, the Word of God made flesh, the Kingdom of God increasing under the government of Christ that never ends.
Led by the Holy Spirit in the government of Christ, we see the kingdom of the beloved Son advance, spread, multiplying righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. All sheep nations will thrive and flourish; all goat nations will end. The kingdom of God and his righteousness will never end; the kingdom of God within will never die, but be clothed anew from glory to glory. If you are looking for signs of the kingdom coming, stop looking, and ask to receive Christ Jesus in your spirit and soul and body to be a new wineskin carrying the new wine of the Lord who is the Spirit now.
Salvation is the Rock Foundation found only in Jesus. Holy Spirit brings Christ in you, dissolving the old nature by holy fire, forming Christ in you by the transforming Holy Spirit and fire of God, Who purifies, refines and makes you white as snow in the Blood; the Water and the Spirit of God who washes, regenerates, and renews Christ in you by the River of Water of Life continuously flowing from above the Highest Heavens, where the Throne of God and his Christ remains forever exalted, Most High, above every other throne, the Name above every name we take in marriage (union) to the Christ, not a physical marriage but a spiritual marriage that is holy, righteous, pure, godly, and unchanging, as Jesus is unchanging Spirit and Eternal Life for all who take Christ in spiritual marriage; take the Lamb of God as Spiritual Husband to be a royal bride.
Those who are not born again remain children of the devil, fathered by the devil, the father of lies who deceives those blinded by the god of this world; veiled minds whose spiritual eyes are still blind. But those who are born again of God, by Water and Spirit of Life, are the children of God and their eyes that were blinded in the fall are opened to see.
Those who refuse to see the light of Truth let idols remain in their hearts, separated from God, under the influence of unclean spirits of this world, making them a part of the harlot, spiritually married to the devil, hosting fallen spirits that keep you in bondage to the elemental spirits of the universe. But when you come to Christ and receive Christ in you, root and ground in Christ, live in Christ and see His glory, we are changed into His likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is The Spirit.
“Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom”
Be purified, refined and made white as snow. The Blood of Jesus makes you white as snow: ask and receive. The Holy Spirit purifies, washes, regenerates and renews you daily in Christ, and Christ in you. The Fire of God refines, removes impurities, leaving the pure gold of the glory of Christ in you; dissolving the old nature, kindling the old elements in you, removing all that was of the old earth in you, so the Holy Spirit can form Christ in you, a new heavenly place where righteousness dwells in Christ, and Christ in you, both NOW and to Eternity (2 Peter 3:1-18).
