False religion focuses on YOU, tries to change your behavior; false religion is man-made. True Religion is from God our Father, uncreated, innate connection that was broken is repaired through Jesus to focus on Jesus: the Son of God, the Christ, the Anointed One, the Messiah sent to earth for all human beings, the Holy One, the Living One, alive forever more, having sacrificed once for all. Now all we have to do is COME to Jesus, accept and receive what HE did, which reconnects/reconciles us to God our Father. We are taught by the Holy Spirit, and the Holy One anointing teaches us to ABIDE IN CHRIST. All our focus is taken off us and put on Jesus; our mind stayed on God; trusting God we are kept in perfect Peace, Shalom, nothing lacking, nothing missing, nothing broken, nothing impossible with God, nothing to fear with Christ in you; simply abide! by the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit!
“I have been crucified with the Last Adam; 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
We keep our focus on the Son of Righteousness; all we do is maintain our relationship to Christ, the True Vine that connects a new heaven and new earth where righteousness dwells in Christ. Jesus is our new “Plus-One” in Christ and Christ in you; making you a new “lamp stand” for the Lamb, Who is our new Light, filling our spirit man and overflowing to the rest of our body. Christ in you makes you a refined golden lampstand of God our Father in Christ Jesus’ fiery Right Hand (Revelation 1:12-20). The new city (Christ in you) has no temple in it, for God and His Lamb are our new temple: we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:11-14). Christ in you is the glory, his presence, in you when the Lamb becomes your lamp (Revelation 21:21-23).
If you see through the Lamp of the Lamb, your eye will be single and sound and full of light (single-minded, single-hearted, single-purposed/willed/motivation/intention to do the Will of God on earth as it is in heaven from the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, Christ in you!) and your body will also be full of light; shining with all twelve rare gemstone rays of the new white garment of Christ Light, Spirit, Glory, Presence, Fire: bright, clear, transparent, radiant, luminous, pearlescent garment of Salvation, Righteousness and Wedding of the Lamb (Luke 11:33-36; Romans 13:11-14; Revelation 19:7, 21:9-22:17).
We make sure we stay on the Vine (Christ) kept by the Vinedresser (His Father) (John 15:1-7) once we are grafted into Christ, keeping in the Word: His life and Spirit, to share in all the riches of God’s glory/abundance/life/Spirit flowing down from the Throne of God our Father and His Lamb. The Lamb as our new center: central highest “stem” of the sevenfold lampstand of gold refined by fire, where the River of oil, fire and water of life flows into our body through the Lamb as our light, overflowing into all of our being. Our six “stem” human stand/body is changed when Christ is received within; the Lamb becomes our center “stem”, the highest “stem” flowing oil and fire from the Throne that overflow the center stem into the six other stems in you, illuminating your new lampstand! (I wish I could draw a picture, because when I did that this morning it was so clear! but hard to put into words)
The five unwise brides-to-be do not seek to get the oil they need for their lamps and are not ready when the Bridegroom King of Glory comes to get them. The five wise “betrothed-s” seek, find, and are diligent to keep filled with the oil that comes from the Holy Spirit River, keeping on fire for God! seeing Christ face to face; his new Name written on our forehead, having said, “yes, I do!” so nothing unclean or accursed can come into your spirit and soul and body, for the tree of life of Christ Jesus is there flowing with the River of water of life/Spirit of ascended, glorified Christ. The Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus removes satan’s tree of the knowledge of good and evil by burning it down root to branch, so the Sun of Righteousness could rise in you with healing! the morning star rise in your heart! and the dawn of the new Day of Christ dawns on you! and the Vinedresser can keep you pruned and bearing much fruit of Christ, the tree of life! the twelve fruits of righteousness, the fruit of the Holy Spirit, and the fruit of light!
“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will give you HIS LIGHT” Ephesians 5:14
Your job is to focus on Christ Jesus and what He did for you, no more self-focus, and simply abide in Christ! as you witness Holy Spirit work upon, with and in you, for the glory of God our Father!
“IF you abide in Christ, and His Words abide in you, ask whatever you will and it will be done for you, to give glory to God our Father” John 15:7-8
The keys of the Kingdom are given to those in Christ and Christ in you to use them to bind and loose; and the Holy Spirit in you, the breath of Christ Life in you, gives you power and authority (USE the Keys and the Sword of the Word for such a time as this!) UNDER the power and authority of the King of kings and Lord of lords, UNDER the dominion of God our Father Who made us in Christ to be kings, priest, ministers, sons led by the Holy Spirit and mature, spotless brides who have plenty of oil, fire and eyes to see, to bring the Light of Christ to this dark world and thick darkness her people.
“Come out of her, lest you take part in her sins; lest you share in her plagues”
Take the Word of God written on your heart and mind, fed daily with the hidden manna, as you are always hungry and thirsty for RIGHTEOUSNESS therefore always satisfied with the Life and the Spirit that comes through the Word of God; a sharp Sword of the Spirit to REMOVE all division from God, as it exposes the thoughts and intentions of your heart so you can ask Jesus to uproot anything accursed or unclean (Revelation 21:27-22:5) or roots of bitterness or unforgiveness (Romans 11:16-24), so you can be a new city of God, set on a hill (Matthew 5:14), shining with Christ in you, God’s glory within, the Lamp of the Lamb your light (Revelation 21:23); being salt and light in this dark, fallen world!
“Blessed and fortunate and happy and spiritually prosperous (in that state in which the born-again child of God enjoys His favor and salvation) are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God), for they shall be completely satisfied! [Isaiah 55:1-2] Matthew 5:6 AMPC
“Lest you be self-opinionated (wise in your own conceits), I do not want you to miss this hidden truth and mystery, brethren: a hardening (insensibility) has befallen a part of Israel to last until the FULL NUMBER of Gentiles have come in” Romans 11:1-25 AMPC).
