We stand fast through faith, so we can stand in awe (Romans 11:20). Unbelief keeps you off the Vine of Christ; belief puts you on the Vine; Holy Spirit keeps you on the Vine. You begin with a physical body, but you deny your SELF, pick up YOUR cross and follow Jesus, to die with Jesus, to be raised a spiritual body together with Christ (1 Corinthians 15:35-57). In Christ and Christ in you, you have been crucified with Jesus; it is no longer “I” who live, but Christ who lives in you; and the life you now live is by faith in the Son who loves you and died for you (Galatians 2:20).
God sowed Jesus in the earth (1 Cor 15:36); we reap what we did not sow (John 4:38). Jesus died as the last Adam, as the Father made Jesus sin who knew no sin, to resurrect righteousness, a new heaven and new earth, where righteousness dwells in Christ and through belief and faith, we take Christ in us individually to be righteous through faith, not works.
God brought the FIRST BORN from the dead into the world; angels worship Jesus! even the demons KNOW Jesus is the Son of God sent to save, heal, deliver and set us free! Everyone knows; all creation can clearly see God through His creation; those who reject our Father by rejecting Jesus are sons of perdition, lawless, disobedient, rebellious, stiff-necked, refusing the True Light that came into this dark, fallen, broken world, because they want to keep what they are doing HIDDEN because they KNOW it is wrong. They keep themselves from entering the kingdom, and those they have deceived by lies and half-truths, deceptions, delusions, cleverly devised myths; preaching a different “Jesus” and a different “gospel” that is not about good news of grace, but bondage to religion and man-made laws disguised as religious law. Come out of the world system of government and religion that is the dwelling place of demons, the haunt of foul spirits, deceiving ALL nations by sorcery, and the killing of innocents, born and unborn; blood upon their heads (Revelation 18:1-24), but those in Christ will be vindicated, given recompense, restored double for the trouble evil has caused the righteous in Christ. We will see the Victory of the Lord on our behalf (2 Chronicles 20:17; Psalm 18:1-50; Revelation 17:14).
God made the angels winds and flames of fire (Hebrews 1:7); sends ministering spirits to serve those who are to inherit salvation (Hebrews 1:14) and sends the seven spirits from the Throne to earth (Revelation 5:6): fire, oil and eyes to see the King of kings and Lord of lords made us a kingdom and priests to God, and we are to reign on earth together with Christ as coheirs (Revelation 5:10, 20:6). Don’t despise those who are lost, for their angels are face to face with God our Father at the Throne above the highest heavens (Matthew 18:10); but pray for the sevenfold Holy Spirit to come upon them mightily! that their eyes may be opened to see the Light and come to Christ, coming out of the world system, turning from darkness to Light, and turning from the power of satan to the Power of God, receiving forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified BY FAITH in Christ (Acts 26:18)!
“Abide in Me, and I in you.” “I am the Vine; My Father is the Vinedresser.” “Apart from Me you can do nothing.” ~ Jesus the Christ of God
Apart from Christ, you shall indeed hear, but never understand God, and you shall see but never perceive as Christ perceives. For your heart has grown dull, and your ears heavy of hearing lies, and your eyes you have closed from all the assaults upon your senses; no longer able to perceive the pure truth of holiness and righteousness, hearing the Voice of the True Shepherd, and understand with your spiritual heart perception, and TURN (repent: metanoia; change your way of thinking) for Jesus to heal you (Acts 28:26-27).
But God!!! But when we come to Jesus, we die to our old nature, and are grafted on the holy root of Jesus, that only grows holy branches of the tree of resurrection Life, found in Christ and Christ in you. In Christ we are supported by the Powerful Right Hand of God our Father AND by the holy root of Jesus (Psalm 18:35; Romans 11:18). Those who do not persist in unbelief will be grafted to the Holy Root of Christ (Romans 11:23). “Receive Christ Jesus the Lord, and live IN HIM, rooted and built up IN CHRIST and established in faith, abounding in thanksgiving, because it is a GIFT from God (Colossians 2:6-7). “You who were dead in trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God makes alive TOGETHER WITH CHRIST…disarming the principalities and powers, TRIUMPHING over them in Christ (Colossians 2:8-15). In Christ you are no longer prey for unclean spirits and the evil one; Christ in you matures until you come to fullness of life IN Christ, the HEAD of all rule, authority, power and dominion in heaven AND on earth (Colossians 1:27-3:11; Ephesians 1:17-2:6; Revelation 19:11-16, 11:15).
Reverential, revelation, awe and wonder! According to the riches of glory of Christ, you are strengthened in your spirit man with Christ in you. Christ dwelling in your heart through faith, rooted and grounded in the Eternal Father’s steadfast Love, to KNOW the Love of Christ which surpasses all knowledge, filling you with ALL the fullness of God; His power at work within you, able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think, giving ALL the glory, honor, thanks, praise, worship, majesty, dominion, power and authority to God our Father and His Christ!!!
“Thy Throne, O God, is forever and ever, thy righteous scepter is the scepter of Lord Jesus Christ’s kingdom. You love righteousness and hate lawlessness; therefore God our Father has anointed Jesus with the oil of Joy beyond any other…all perishes but Christ (Hebrews 1:8-13); the Word made flesh, a new heaven and new earth where RIGHTEOUSNESS dwells; Come to Christ!!!
