Dearly beloveds of Christ, God has not given you a spirit of fear. Fear comes from the enemy of our souls. Jesus tells us the thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy, but do not fear for Jesus has overcome the enemy and this world, so we can come to Christ and be saved, healed, delivered and set free from the enemy and this world; delivered from the dominion of darkness and transferred into the Kingdom of the Beloved Son, in Whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
In Christ and Christ in you, there is no part dark, no sin, no death, and no devil; apart from Christ you can do nothing, but united with Christ in mind, heart and will, you can also do what Jesus did and even greater works BECAUSE he overcame this world and ruler of this world by the finished work of the Cross and sits WITH THE FATHER at His Throne far above the highest heavens, ruling and reigning, the Lord God Omnipotent reignth, the King of kings and Lord of lords over His Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, replacing the kingdoms of this world ruled by lucifer, demonic spirits, and the devil, with the Kingdom of the God our Father and His Lamb, the Lord of lords and King of kings (Revelation 17:14), and the Word: the King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:11-16), when we follow Jesus to be crucified WITH him to hear, see, and declare God’s Words that have resurrection life and Spirit in them, to reveal and manifest the Words of Jesus of the Father, through the Holy Spirit sent to believers: “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I NOW LIVE in the flesh, I live by FAITH in the Son of God, who loves me and died for me” Galatians 2:20.
It is full-time to be immersed in God’s Word; eat and drink of The Word of God through Jesus, and now through the Holy Spirit sent to you to open the Word to your understanding so you can understand what God is saying to you right now and is to come! Jesus told us His Words are life and Spirit, so eat the Word and drink the Spirit of Life through the Word; eat the meat of the Word, root in the Word, the holy Root of Jesus, grow up with the Word into the tree of life, Christ in you, mature in Christ to receive the Wisdom imparted to the mature in Christ. It is not the wisdom of this age or of this world; it imparts a secret and hidden Wisdom of God, which God decreed BEFORE the ages for our glorification: eyes to see, ears to hear, hearts made new with upright spirit to spiritually perceive; God reveals to us through the Spirit! (1 Corinthians 2:6-10)
God our Father makes the resurrection life and Spirit of Christ the Source of your life and spirit; God makes Christ your wisdom, your righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption (1 Cor 1:30). “IF any one is IN CHRIST, he is a new [first fruits kind of] creature, the old has passed away, behold, the new has come” 2 Cor 5:17
“Do not be deceived. Every good endowment and every perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights…the Word of Truth that we should BE a kind of first fruits of His creatures” James 1:16-17
“I write this about those who would DECEIVE YOU; but the anointing which you receive from the Father and His Christ, ABIDES IN YOU, and you have no need that any one teach you; as His anointing teaches you about EVERYTHING, and is TRUE and no lies, just as it teaches you to ABIDE IN CHRIST” 1 John 2:26-27
God did NOT give you a spirit of fear. “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see if they are of God…Little children [in Christ], you are OF GOD, and HAVE OVERCOME [with Christ in you]; for Christ in you is GREATER than he who is in this world…Whoever KNOWS God [through Jesus] listens; and he who is not of God [apart from Christ] does not listen. By this we know the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of error” 1 John 4:1-6
In Christ and Christ in you, renew your commitment to God; receive Jesus’ resurrection life and Spirit anew; daily eat your Living Bread of the Words of Jesus that flow with resurrection Life and Spirit of God. Chew on the meat of the Word and drink from Christ’s glorified River of Spirit, fire-light, presence, and all the riches of the glory of Christ!
Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus; eyes like flames of fire that dissolves what is not true. Keep your mind stayed on God and trust God our Father who keeps you in perfect Peace: the shalom of God: whole, complete, perfect which means lacking NOTHING!
Count it all joy when you go through trials for the full effect is to be complete, perfect and lacking NOTHING (James 1:2-8). Ask God for Wisdom! Go from double-minded to the single Mind of Christ to receive. “The double minded receive nothing of God”
“There is nothing to fear but fear itself.”
Fear is faith in the adversary. “Perfect Love casts out all fear” and Christ Jesus is the Perfect Love of God our Father. Faith is substance, assurance, conviction, confidence, trust, knowing, and evidence of the unseen when you abide in Christ and Christ in you (Hebrews 11:1; Colossians 1:26-28). We are both WARNED and TAUGHT to receive Christ in you to MATURE in Christ. Root deeper into the holy root of Jesus who was sent by God to this earth to bring the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness so you could come to Jesus, repent (turn) and be saved, healed, delivered and set free through the Power of the Gospel of the light of the glory of Christ, the likeness of God (Colossians 2:6; 1 John 4:1-21; Romans 11:16-24).
“Examine yourselves, to see whether you are holding to your FAITH. Test yourselves. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is IN YOU? — UNLESS indeed you fail to meet the test!” 2 Cor 13:5
“You who were once estranged and hostile in mind…Jesus has now reconciled in HIS BODY OF FLESH by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and irreproachable before Him, PROVIDED you continue in the FAITH, stable and steadfast, NOT SHIFTING from the hope of the gospel which you heard, WHICH HAS BEEN PREACHED TO EVERY CREATURE UNDER HEAVEN” Colossians 1:21-23
The Word exhorts, admonishes, encourages, helps you to “rejoice always, pray unceasingly [Holy Spirit and High Priest in you 24/7 in Christ and Christ in you], giving thanks in ALL circumstances; for this is the Will of God in Christ for you. DO NOT QUENCH the HOLY Spirit, do not despise prophesying, but test EVERYTHING; hold fast to what is GOOD; abstain from all evil. May the God of Peace Himself sanctify you wholly; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is Faithful, and He will do it” 1 Thessalonians 1:2-5:24
“Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is FALSELY called knowledge, for by professing it some have MISSED THE MARK as regards the FAITH” 1 Timothy 6:20-21
In times of stress, the Lord God Almighty can rescue you! save, heal, deliver and set you free! (2 Timothy 3:1-11). “Evil men and IMPOSTERS will go on from BAD to WORSE, deceiving and deceived. But as for you, continue [in Christ and Christ in you by FAITH] in what you learned and have firmly believed, KNOWING from Whom you learned it [HOLY SPIRIT of God through Jesus our Lord and Savior]” 2 Tim 3:13-14
Take the FAITH of Jesus in God our Father, by the Holy Spirit! Refresh your heart and mind and will in Christ Jesus! Ask and receive the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness. Take it by FAITH! “The Goodness and Loving-kindness of God sent Jesus Who saved us in His Mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, which He poured out upon us richly THROUGH CHRIST JESUS, so we can be justified by His Grace and become HEIRS… The saying is SURE” Titus 2:4-8. TAKE IT BY FAITH! Be bold and confident! The righteous live by FAITH! You cannot please God with FAITH!
See, behold, the glorified Christ; serve and witness what you have heard, now see, and declare (Isaiah 48:6, 42:9, 43:18-19)! Open eyes to see, that they may TURN from the power of satan over them to the Power of God Almighty, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and receive A PLACE among those sanctified by FAITH (Acts 26:12-18). If it happened to me it can happen to you! God is not a respecter of persons, not partial, does not judge by outward appearances BUT BY THE HEART (John 7:24) with RIGHTEOUS judgment. “The Word that I have spoken will be your judge on the last day” Jesus in John 12:48
“My sheep hear My Voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give them eternal Life, and they will NEVER DIE, and no one shall snatch them out of My Hand” Jesus in John 10:27
“Do the Will of God and receive what is promised” Hebrews 10:36
Submit to the Father of spirits and LIVE (Hebrews 12:9). Submit to God, resist the devil, the father of lies, and he MUST flee from you. Our God is a consuming fire; let Him consume all that is not of Christ in you; God is shaking all that is not of Himself, so all that remains is Christ in you! Those who refuse God’s Grace and Glory will be consumed; those who come to Christ find rest for their souls, yoke to Christ, learn Christ, rest in God as the Holy Spirit works in and through you greater than you could ask or think; to God be the glory now and forever! Amen. Hallelujah! for the Lord God Omnipotent reignth; and He shall reign for ever and ever! King of kings and Lord of lords!
