Do Not Lose Heart

It is not what is going on around us that matters; it is what God puts in us that matters. When we ask God for His Spirit to be upon, with and in us, the spirit of this world, the spirit of error, is replaced by the Spirit of God, when we come out of this fallen, broken, dark world system (Revelation 18:1-24) and come to abide in Christ (Matthew 11:28-29; John 15:4) receiving the Holy Spirit with and in us (John 14:16-26), and the baptism of Jesus: the Holy Spirit and fire baptism upon us; asking and keep on asking, for everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives (Jesus in Luke 11:9-13 AMP Classic).

“Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me…I assure you, most solemnly tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he himself will be able to do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father. And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My Name [as representing all that I AM], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in and through the Son” Jesus in John 14:11-14

Jesus says, “Did I not tell you and promise you that if you would believe and rely on Me, you would see the glory of God?”  Jesus in John 11:40

Under the old covenant the veil still lies over your soul (mind, heart, will), but when the veil is lifted, revealing in Christ it is made void and done away with. When a person turns in repentance to the Lord, the veil is stripped off and taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom). And with an unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord [in the Word of God and as in a mirror], are being transformed and transfigured into His image (2 Corinthians 3:14-18).

Do not let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated); believe in and adhere to and trust and rely on God and Me…Peace I leave with you; My own peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled]…I told you ahead of time so you may believe and have faith in and rely on Me” Jesus in John 14:1

The eternal and timeless purpose of God was realized and carried into effect in the person of Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness, courage and confidence of free access: unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear. So do not lose heart or become despondent through fear, Jesus suffered, endured the Cross for the Joy of our Salvation, giving us the glory He received [though we do nothing but believe and receive]. For this reason, seeing the greatness of the Plan by which you are built together IN Christ, I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named. May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in your inner man by the Holy Spirit Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality. May Christ, through your faith, actually dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, that you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints (God’s devoted people, the experience of that love) what is the breadth and length and height and depth of it. That you may really come to know [practically, through experiencing it for yourselves] the love of Christ which far surpasses mere knowledge without experience; that you may be filled throughout your being unto all the fullness of God [have the richest measure of the divine Presence], and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself! Now to Him Who by the consequence of, the action of His power at work in us, is able to carry out His purposes and do superabundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think (infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes or dreams) — To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever, Amen (so be it). Ephesians 3:11-21 AMP Classic

    Thanks Yvonne. I appreciate you. The Lord’s real people are coming together, somehow, some way, through His power and ability to unite His Community. They are also aware of how dangerous these times have become, not because the enemy has somehow grown stronger, but because so many Christians have become weaker. The enemy has taken full advantage of Christians neglecting and rejecting their rightful authoritative place in Him to stand against and over the enemy, much of it because our so-called leaders, whom Christians are admonished to subject themselves to, have failed to live up to their supposed callings. It falls on each us, then, to stand up for the Lord as individual followers of Him, and do what we all should have been doing all along, rather than revoke our standing and submit to failed leadership, most of which have no intention of changing. It is these many individual followers of the Lord who make the real difference.

    No enemy of the Lord Jesus will ever win. Those who are truly with the Lord Jesus will [n]ever lose. [edited].

    Blessings to you this morning.

    • Blessings of rich abundance in the glory of Christ to you!
      “Thanks be to God Who in Christ always leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ’s Victory] and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God and his glory everywhere, for we are the sweet fragrance of Christ [which exhales] unto God, [discernible alike] among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the latter it is a aroma from death to death [a fatal odor, the smell of doom]; to the former it is an aroma from life to life [a vital fragrance, living and fresh]. For we are not like so many [like hucksters] peddling God’s Word [short changing and and adulterating the Diving Message] but like men of sincerity and the purest motives speak His Message in Christ (the Messiah), in the very sight and presence of God” 2 Corinthians 2:14-17
      Thank God for his great mercy, grace and glory!
      I thank God at all times for sending Jesus and the finished work of the Cross and sending the Holy Spirit!
      “In Him in every respect we are enriched, in full power and readiness of speech to speak of our faith and complete knowledge and illumination to give us full insight into its meaning…not falling behind or lacking in any special spiritual endowment or grace [the power of Divine Grace operating in our souls by the Holy Spirit], while waiting and watching in Living Hope for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ made visible to all. And he establishes us to the end [kept steadfast, giving us strength, and guarantees our vindication]; Christ is our warrant against all accusations or indictments so we are guiltless and irreproachable in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is Faithful and ever true to His Promises and we are called into companionship and participation with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord…perfectly united with Him…made clear…belonging to Christ…not letting the Cross of Christ be deprived of force and emptied of its power and rendered vain (fruitless, void of value, and of no effect). For the message of the Cross is sheer absurdity and folly to those who are perishing and on their way to perdition, but to us who are being saved it is the manifestation of the power of God. For it is written, I will baffle and render useless and destroy the learning of the learned and the philosophy of the philosophers and the cleverness of the clever and the discernment of the discerning; I will frustrate and nullify them and bring them to nothing…God has shown up the nonsense and the folly of this world’s wisdom. For when the world with all its earthly wisdom failed to perceive and recognize and know God by means of its own philosophy, God in His wisdom was pleased through the foolishness of preaching salvation by Christ, and to be had through Christ, to save those who believe…We preach Christ crucified [to the Jews it is a scandal, an offensive stumbling block, a trap] and to the Gentiles it is absurd and utterly unphilosophical nonsense, but to those who are called, whether Jew or Gentile, Christ is the Power of God and the Wisdom of God” 1 Cor 1:4-24 AMPC
      Thank God for Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit! to God be all thanks, honor, blessing, majesty, praise, worship, glory, dominion, power and authority now and is to come!
