Words wound: wordswordswordswordswordswordswordswordswordswordswords, but The Word of God brings life, salvation, healing and holiness. The Word of God is the Sword of the Spirit, having two sharp edges to first divide you from evil, and secondly connecting you to God. However the Word without the Spirit (even the devil spoke the Word to Jesus, tempting him with a different spirit) is like fast food, junk food, or franken-food, genetically modified, artificial, altered, changing it so it is harmful to the wonderfully-made, God-designed human body; empty calories that do not nourish, strengthen, or enliven the body, but hasten its death, like words devoid of resurrection life and Spirit of God our Father and his Christ.
The Word is resurrection life and Spirit, both light and lamp, both wisdom and power to change you, in the grace and glory of the riches of Christ, through the great Gifts of Salvation, Redemption and Righteousness, through the Blood, Water and Spirit of Lord Jesus Christ, poured out from the Throne of God like a continuous fresh, fire-lit, grace and glory River, to fill and overflow your spirit and soul and body and life, to flow rivers of Christ’s Presence and Spirit through you.
The Word of God is both life and Spirit, made flesh in Christ in you; food and water keeping you strong in Christ, who is the strength in our human weakness; made complete in his righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit; the Way of resurrection Life, made known to us by the baptism of Holy Spirit and fire, making us full of gladness with Christ’s Presence (Acts 2:28).
“God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power to go about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him” (Acts 10:38). After God sends the Holy Spirit and fire baptism upon you, you carry Christ’s fiery Presence and Spirit to go about doing the works of Jesus, no longer doing the works of the devil. “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to My Father. Whatever you ask in My Name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; if you ask anything in My Name, I will do it” John 14:12-14
When the Spirit of the Lord is upon you, you are anointed to bring good news (Isaiah 61:1-11) instead of the constant negative news of this world syste;, silencing the phrases and word curses of the luciferian agenda by speaking the Words of God in the Holy Spirit, from the Kingdom (righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit; Christ in you); from the Holy Spirit who dwells in the new temples of God our Father in our bodies indwelt by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19; 2 Corinthians 13:5). Holy Spirit in you is with you to save, heal, deliver and set free the captives, prisoners, enslaved, bound, broken-hearted, mourning, afflicted, and faint spirited (Isaiah 61:1-11). Bringing the Word and Spirit of God our Father and his Christ, reinforces the Truth, strengthens and empowers people to become oaks of righteousness in the Vineyard of God, the plantings of the Lord that spring up, fruiting Christ, fruit of the Spirit, fruit of Light and fruits of righteousness! The weeds that grow up with the Seed of Christ are seen and burned up with the fire of God; the chaff that comes loose from the wheat in the Wind of the Holy Spirit is blown away as far as the east is from the west. God blesses and favors with grace and glory those who ask and receive Christ in you, to replace all that the father of lies planted in you that hurt, harmed, wounded, stole your birthright, killed your joy, and tried to destroy your hopes and faith and life and loved ones.
But Lord Jesus Christ brings life and life more full and abundant; instead of shame, guilt and condemnation you receive a double portion (vs6-7). In Christ and Christ in you is everlasting Joy that becomes your strength; Jesus gives you the Joy he received for enduring the Cross. Holy Spirit with you delivers you from the dominion of darkness and transfers you into the kingdom of the beloved Son (Colossians 1:13). Oswald Chambers says, “Do not be bothered with whether you are being justly dealt with or not. To look for justice is a sign of DEFLECTION from devotion to Him. NEVER LOOK FOR JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD, but never cease to give it. If we look for justice, we will begin to grouse and to indulge in the DISCONTENT of SELF-PITY — ‘why should we be treated like this?’ If we are devoted to Jesus Christ we have nothing to do with what we meet, whether it it just or unjust. Jesus says, ‘Go steadily on with what I have told you to do and I WILL GUARD YOUR LIFE.’ If you try to guard it yourself, you remove yourself from My deliverance. The most devout among us BECOME ATHEISTIC in this connection; you no longer believe God [Word and Spirit], but enthrone common sense [“do it for the common good” and “all in it together” lies from the enemy of our souls] and tack the name of God on to the lies. Do not lean on your own understanding [of viruses and racism], instead trust God with ALL your HEARTS” ~Oswald Chambers
“Do not accept the Grace of God in vain…Behold, NOW is the acceptable TIME; behold, NOW is the day of salvation. Put no obstacle in any one’s way…Take purity, knowledge, forbearance, kindness, the HOLY Spirit, genuine love, truthful speech, and the POWER OF GOD; with the weapons of RIGHTEOUSNESS for the right hand AND the for the left…have nothing of your old fallen Adamic self, and yet possessing everything of Christ in you…open your mouth from a widened heart [purified, redeemed heart]…We are the temples of the Living God who lives and moves [and has Christ’s being in those who gain Christ and are found in Christ]…Come out of this world system and be separate [holy is separated unto God; perfect is complete in Christ and Christ in you, lacking nothing]…I will be your Father and you my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty” 2 Cor 6:1-18
“The Grace of God has appeared for salvation of all, training us to renounce false religion and worldly ungodly desires, and to live sober, upright, and godly lives IN this world but not OF it, awaiting our blessed hope [now and is to come; individual AND corporal; only the Father knows] the APPEARING of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself to REDEEM us from ALL iniquity and to PURIFY for himself a people of his own who are zealous for good deeds [doing the works of Jesus, instead of the works of the devil that the people yoked in bondage, enslaved to the world system do]: foolish, disobedient to God our Father, LED ASTRAY, slaves to various ungodly passions and pleasures (not knowing the pleasure that comes after the Passion of Christ that is FAR GREATER than any pleasure or passion of this world in the glory of Christ, in the kingdom of the Son is MUCH MORE rejoicing and gladness and oil of joy in the Holy Spirit in Christ in you, than anything of this world; do I hear a witness? This is what the devil is always trying to steal from you by sending the assignments of the enemy against you; the cares of the world etc. of Matthew 13, and the leaven of the false religious that infect whole Bodies of Christ, the Church], passing their days in malice and envy, hated and hating one another [divisions devoid of the Spirit of God such as racism and sexism and scientism (virus, vaccines, masks, closing churches, climate change/global warming, global agendas, UN, WHO)]; BUT when the Goodness and Loving-Kindness of God our Savior appears to you, he saves you [from the world system of lucifer], not by deeds done by you or self-righteousness, but in virtue of his own mercy [what God already did through Jesus Colossians 2:2-15], by the washing and regeneration and renewal in the Holy Spirit, which he pours out upon believers richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that we might be justified by his GRACE and become HEIRS. The Saying is sure. Insist on these things, so that those who believe God may be careful to APPLY them in their own life; excellent and profitable…Have nothing to do with those who are perverted and sinful, who are self-condemned IF they do not turn to Jesus and receive the inheritance of God after admonishing them once or twice” Titus 2:11-3:11
Oswald Chamber says, “The grace you had yesterday will not do for today. Grace is the overflowing favor of God; you can reckon it is there to draw upon…It is not a question of praying and asking God to help you; it is TAKING the grace of God NOW [seeing, receiving and knowing the River of grace and glory, resurrection life and Spirit that continuously pours from the Throne Revelation 22:17]. Intercession is the exercise of drawing on the grace of God in the moment of need…Keep drawing upon the grace of God in every conceivable condition you may be in…Pour out the best you have [Christ in you]…the treasure God gives”
“This is your hour; and the power of darkness” ~Jesus in Luke 22:53
The power of darkness is the power of sin and the power of satan, overcome in Christ, and you conquer with Christ in you, by the Power of God in the Holy Spirit. Oswald Chambers says sin produces all the disasters in life. If you refuse to agree with the facts of sin, darkness, vice, self-seeking, spite, and death-culture in unredeemed human beings, when it strikes your life you will COMPROMISE with it and say it is no use to battle against it or you will not recognize the danger or the root cause of this present danger. Have you recognized this HOUR and the power of DARKNESS, or do you have a philosophy of life that doesn’t include the power of sin, death, and the works of the devil making the basis of unredeemed-life tragic? Holy Spirit was sent by God to wake you up to the fact of sin, the works of the devil, and false religion and counterfeit spirituality that is leaven spoiling the whole bunch. Jesus is ABLE to remove sin, death and the works of the devil in you but you have to come out of her (the harlot) and into Himself where there is NO sin, death, darkness or works of the devil; the Place God has prepared for you in Christ and Christ in you, the hope of glory. Jesus became intimately acquainted with sorrow and grief as the Son of Man, to take it from those who come to him and take his righteousness, holiness; perfect, compete joy for enduring the Cross, so we can LACK NOTHING in Christ and Christ in you, by faith through grace; seeing and receiving and knowing the glory of God, in the riches of Christ, by the Holy Spirit.
The lie and deception of the rational and common sense views of life, say by controlling your instincts and educating yourself, you can produce a life that will slowly evolve into the life of God. But as you go on, you find that you can’t do the good you want to do, but instead do what you know God hates (Romans 7:5-24), sin in all its rainbow of manifestations, and it upsets all your calculations, saying you try to do good. Oswald Chambers says “We have to recognize sin is a fact, NOT A DEFECT; sin is red-handed MUTINY against God. Either God or sin must die in your life. The New Testament brings it down to this ONE ISSUE. If sin rules in you, God’s Life in you will be killed; if God rules in you, sin in you will be killed. There is no possible ultimate but that…Sin is the only explanation of the grief and sorrow in life [apart from Christ]”
Oswald says, “You cannot make yourself right with God, you cannot make your life perfect; you can only be right with God if you accept the Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ as an ABSOLUTE GIFT. Are you humble enough to accept it? You have to resign every kind of claim and cease from every effort, and leave yourself entirely alone in His hands, and then begin to pour out [what God put in you, Christ in you]…If you are not getting the hundredfold more, not getting insight into God’s Word, then start praying for your friends, enter into the ministry of the interior…Wherever God puts you in circumstances, pray immediately, pray that His Atonement may be realized in other lives as it has in yours”
“A man touched by the Spirit of God, suddenly says, ‘Now I see Who Jesus is’ and that is the source of devotion” ~Oswald Chambers
