“Immediately we look at the Words of Jesus, we find them the most revolutionary statements human ears ever listened to” ~ Oswald Chambers
Seek FIRST the kingdom of God and HIS righteousness; and ALL things of Christ shall be added unto you.
We have no righteousness apart from Christ Jesus, therefore, our FIRST priority, our ONLY option is the Living God. We come out of this world system by coming to Christ, giving Jesus EVERYTHING of our old human nature; old heaven and earth and sea of the old covenant UNDER the law of sin, death, devil and works of the devil. We REPENT, turning from idols to the Living and True God (1 Thessalonians 1:9); turning from darkness to light, from mixtures to pure, true Light, TURNING (repentance) from the power of satan to the Power of God (Acts 26:18). We WAIT for the Son from heaven, whom God raised from the dead, JESUS who DELIVERS us from the wrath to come (1 Thess 1:10). Christ comes knocking at your soul’s door; when you HEAR and OPEN, the glorified Lord Jesus Christ comes into your thirsty soul (Psalm 42:2), eating and drinking WITH YOU (Revelation 3:20), satisfying your soul and fulfilling God’s promises of the new covenant of his Blood, delivering you from the dominion of darkness and transferring you to the kingdom of the Son (Colossians 1:13).
We conquer unbelief and are granted to TAKE A SEAT in heavenly places WITH CHRIST, as we STAND FAST in awe, on earth, doing the Will of God our Father on earth as it is in heaven. In Christ and Christ in you, is a new heaven and new earth where RIGHTEOUSNESS dwells; apart from Christ you can do nothing. But made alive together with Christ (Colossians 2:13; Revelation 20:6; Ephesians 2:1-6; Revelation 3:20-21) you are raised up with him, and made to sit with God in the heavenly places IN Christ Jesus.
“Jesus reverses the order; get rightly related to God FIRST; maintain that as the great care of your life, and never put the concern of your care on other things. ‘Take no thought for your life’ Our Lord points out the UTTER UNREASONABLENESS from his standpoint of being so anxious over the means of living…Jesus taught that a disciple has to make his RELATIONSHIP TO GOD the dominating concentration of his life, and to be carefully careless about everything else…be ABSOLUTELY concentrated on God…Put your relationship to God FIRST, and everything else second…Allow the Holy Spirit to bring us into harmony with the teachings of Jesus” ~ Oswald Chambers
In Christ and Christ in you, the world is turned upside down, making “God’s Word” King of Glory! Faithful and True, Righteous, making war on evil; The Word as King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:10-16) leading the heavenly, holy angel armies to perform the Word that does not come back void, making the lies, deception, oppression, adversaries, destroyers, deceivers, accusers, lying lions who roam looking for prey to devour, the father of lies, satan, devil, ancient serpent, dragon, Apollyon, Abbadon, Ba’als, idols, false gods and lords NULL and VOID; manifesting only the Words of Jesus, the testimony that is the spirit of prophesy over those who believe and receive Christ in you. The Lamb conquers those who have given their minds, power and authority to the beast, making war on the Lamb. “The Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those WITH HIM are called and chosen and faithful” Revelation 17:13-14
Take a seat with Christ in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6; Revelation 3:21), and stand firm on earth (Colossians 4:12), in awe and wonder (Romans 11:20)! With Christ, all things are possible to those who believe. It is done unto you as you believe (Matthew 8:13, 9:29, 21:21; Luke 1:37-38). As you think in your heart, so you are (Proverbs 23:7 NKJV). Christ in you is greater than he who is in this world (1John 4:4). As Christ now is, so are you in this world (4:17)!
Sheep nations will be divided from goat nations; the tares separated from the wheat. Those jockeying for the title “goat” “greatest of all time” will soon find they have to bow and confess the Lord Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name that can be named; as will those who are worshiping false gods, or worshiping the creation instead of the Creator, or replacing the actual, real, glory of Christ, the living Presence of Christ, with dead images that cannot save, heal, deliver or set free. The wrath of God will be REVEALED against those who know the truth but suppress it to keep people in bondage to religion or government; even approving of sin, death, evil, and perversions, choosing unbelief, ungodliness, unholiness and unrighteousness instead of Christ. “Although all know God through his eternal power and deity, clearly perceived in the things that have been made, they do not honor or thank God, but blind their eyes to the glory of Christ, become futile in thinking, and their senseless minds are darkened. Claiming to be wise, they become fools, exchanging the glory of the immortal God for images…Therefore God gives them up to the lusts of their hearts to IMPURITY, to dishonoring their bodies among themselves, because they exchange the truth about God for a lie” Romans 1:18-32
Now is a time of RECKONING; reviewing the path you have taken, and the fruit of those paths. Jesus says, “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many (religion). For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life (Jesus), and those who find it are few” Matthew 7:13-14. Beware of false prophets dressed like sheep, pretending to be servants of righteousness, but inwardly ravenous wolves; you will know them by their fruit: sexual immorality, greed, power-hungry, hidden global agendas, lust for world power or domination, lust for fancy buildings, wearing scarlet and purple, making world rulers bow and kiss a ring, bowing down to statues, putting a mother over the Son, putting a created object in a sun burst and getting innocent devout souls to reverence an idol, a sun god; hiding their associations, and hiding who they really worship in secret; making fancy thrones for themselves, putting themselves in the place of Christ; putting people in bondage to religion instead of turning them to God through Jesus, to receive the Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus, to be inhabited, empowered, enwisened, enlivened, revived, reformed, regenerated in the image and likeness of Christ, the likeness of God our Father.
There are two trees: two ways (Psalm 1:1-6); one leads to destruction, the other to the resurrection life and Spirit of Christ in you (Revelation 22:1-17). “The Lord knows The Way of the righteous (Jesus), but the way of the wicked will perish” (Psalm 1:6). “Let us test and examine our ways, and return to the Lord God Almighty! Let us lift up our hearts and hands to God in heaven” (Lamentations 3:40-41). “The joy of your heart has ceased; your dancing has turned to mourning. The crown has fallen off your head; woe to you, for you have sinned. For this your heart has become sick, for these things your eyes have grown dim…you lie desolate; demons prowl. But Thou O Lord, dost reign forever; thy throne endures to EVERY GENERATION…Restore us to thyself, O Lord, that we may be restored! Renew our days!” Lamentations 5:15-21
The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come, take the River of water of life” Christ’s Presence of glory, fire, power, wisdom; without price; Jesus paid the price! “Remember NOT the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I make the WAY in the wilderness and RIVER in the desert” (Isaiah 43:18-19). “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create” (Isaiah 65:17). “In that day you will KNOW that I am in the Father, and you in Me, and I in you” ~Jesus in John 14:20. In Christ and Christ in you (John 15:4) you are on the Vine in the Vineyard of the Father, nourished and watered by the Holy Spirit and the Son of Righteousness, to go leaping with joy, led forth in righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, the kingdom of God, seated with Christ, standing firm on earth in reverential AWE of God our Father and His Christ!
Receive from Christ’s fullness of God (John 1:16; Ephesians 1:23; Colossians 2:9-10) a tiny portion (a tongue) of the fire of God, who is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29); from the fiery glorious presence, light of glory, of the resurrection life of Christ Jesus (Revelation 1:12-18) dissolving the old creation, and forming the new “first-fruits” creature of the new creation of the new covenant in Christ, the First-Fruit, the First-Born from the dead, and Christ in you! “IF with Christ you DIED to the elemental spirits of this universe, why do you live as if you still belonged to this world?” (Colossians 2:20). Human precepts and doctrines of demons, religious human traditions, philosophy, psychology, and even science divorced from the Wisdom from Above, has the “appearance of wisdom” but is earthly, unspiritual and devilish (James 3:15), causing great harm, and keeping people from asking and receiving, seeking and finding, knocking on the door; opening to the Higher Ways and Higher Thoughts of our Creator who designed us to be united with Christ!
