We stop looking back, and look up! Our help comes from Above. Looking back turns your hatred and pain to stone; looking up to Jesus, asking and receiving salvation, redemption, and righteousness, heals, delivers and sets you free from the past and able to move forward in Christ and Christ in you: the one new creature: Jewish Jesus and Gentile you, no longer divided, no division, no hostility, nothing but peace is found in Christ in whom we both have access in one Body and one Spirit to God our Father, where sonship is given (Ephesians 2:13-18; Luke 15:11-32), clothing you with the Son of Righteousness, the shoes of Peace, celebration of your return to God with Joy, giving you the ring of the Royal Family of God in Christ’s Name above every name that can be named, taking the new married Name.
God our Father says, son you are always with Me, and all that is mine is yours; bride you are always with Christ and no one can separate or divorce you; kings and priests you are always in the kingdom of the beloved Son, under the King of kings and Lord of lords, The Word, Faithful, True and Righteous, flowing with the Holy Spirit. Therefore, make merry and be glad for you were dead and now alive in Christ; you were lost and now found; you were stuck in the past but now you are free to receive Christ’s continuous flow: a River of new life and Spirit from My Throne in Christ and Christ in you; your new God-given identity in your God-given Family (Luke 15:21-32; Ephesians 3:14; Revelation 19:11-16; Revelation 22:17).
Baptized into Christ is one with God our Father. “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city (the new city, the Bride) by the gates. Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and fornicators and murderers and idolaters and every one who loves and practices falsehood” Revelation 22:14-15
“For as many of you are baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise” Galatians 3:27-29
IN Christ, “I have been crucified with Christ; 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
“Formerly, when you did not know God, you were in bondage to beings that by nature are no gods; but NOW that you have come to know God, or rather be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and beggarly elemental spirits, whose slaves you want to be once more?” Galatians 4:8-9
We take the righteousness of Christ of God by faith. Righteousness strengthens the individual, and righteousness exalts a nation (Proverbs 14:34). The Wisdom and Power of Christ is gentle, compassionate, humble power and wisdom from Above that is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, sincere, certain, and a harvest of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. America has lost Jesus’ joy because she has lost her way. The Way, The Truth, and The Life IS Christ Jesus, and we come to Christ and give Jesus all of our pasts; all pasts were painful because all human beings were separated from the Truth of God; pasts of separation from God our Father, believing lies and deceptions that weaken, disease, disorder, discourage, disillusion, wound, harm, hurt, and steal our God-given identities, kill our hopes and dreams, and destroy our faith and love. Now is the time, today is the day of salvation; don’t let the sun go down on your anger, giving opportunity to the devil. Come out of the world system, the dwelling place of demons, the haunt of unclean and elemental spirits that keep you in bondage to the past and demons of the past, and come to Jesus and receive the new life of God, of Spirit, of Light, of True Love, of Pure Glory, of the Water of Life from the Throne, the Wisdom and Power of Christ who has already won the battle and gives you the spiritual weapons of Righteousness and Peace and Joy in the Holy Spirit, Discernment of spirits, Self-Control from a Sound Mind, Power based on God’s Love, Authority based on the finished work of the Cross of Jesus who was given all power and authority in heaven AND on earth (Romans 8:1-39, 12:2; .
“Idols have no real existence; there is no God but one. For although there may be so-called gods in heaven or on earth — as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords” — yet for us there is ONE God, the Father, from whom are ALL THINGS and for whom we exist, and ONE Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are ALL THINGS and through whom we exist. However, not all POSSESS this knowledge” 1 Corinthians 8:4-7
We take POSSESSION of the fulfilled promises of God through Jesus by the Holy Spirit possessing us, dwelling in us, by coming to Christ.
“Come to Me” all who are worried, tired, heavy-laden with burdens, offended, outraged, angry, fearful, lustful, depressed, “and I will give you rest.” Take My yoke, learn from Me; I am gentle and humble-hearted, and you will FIND REST instead of unrest. Awake, arise from the dead, receive Light! ~Jesus
Power that forces is not Jesus. Christ’s Presence and Life and Spirit are like a River of Water coming down from the Throne of God; never-ending, continuous stream of pure light, true love and holy, right Spirit of God to give you a pure heart and new right Spirit of God. Water doesn’t force, but water changes what it is poured repeatedly upon.
