How much is one degree? With unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord we are changed from one degree to another; for this comes from the Lord who is Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:18). How much is one degree? I don’t know! but I do know that one taste of God’s Goodness, one touch by the Lord Jesus Christ, one encounter with the Living Presence of God, and your whole world changes. I spent a lot of time, long ago in the past, running to the altar at every invitation, lots of “carpet time” in pure surrender, yielding to the Holy Spirit. All God asks after we give our life to him is that we are willing to let God do what only God can do. If you try to do things in your own strength or will power, it is considered witchcraft, rebellion, putting yourself and your ideas of God above God; manipulation and control is of the devil; Jesus is humble, meek, gentle, compassionate, easy, light (Matthew 11:28-29). We come to Jesus and keep coming; he gives us rest as we let Holy Spirit work, yielding to the Spirit of God; perfect submission to God our Father who know everything about each person, and the Only omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, all Pure, Holy, Just and Righteous God, who only has your highest and best in mind, unlike the spirit of this world who is the deceptive father of lies, who will lead you to conform to this world system and alter your outside to match your unredeemed inside, instead of God redeeming your heart so you can be restored to the image and likeness of the Son of righteousness, taking the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus; self-righteous is a spirit of error.
God our Father knows every hair on our heads; Jesus knew us before the foundation of the world; Holy Spirit is sent through the prayers of Jesus to be with and in us, to do exactly what our Father knows we cannot do for ourselves. Holy Spirit first convicts us of sin, then righteousness and then judgment (John 16:7-11). The only systemic problem in this world is sin, plain and simple: knowing what God requires (biblical Truth revealed by the Holy Spirit) and not doing it. Many people take the name “Christian” and never have a heart change, therefore no transformation of their way of thinking, feeling, desiring, choosing or speaking. This is taking the name of being alive, but actually dead in your sins and works of the devil (Revelation 3:1). The Remedy is repenting, eyes opened to turn from darkness to light, and turn from the power of satan to the Power of God, who forgives, redeems, saves, heals, delivers and sets you free to love God and love one another as yourself, to take your place in Christ, and when glorified Christ comes to you, welcome Christ in you to conquer, and be granted to be seated with Christ in heavenly places (Revelation 3:15-21) as you let his River of water of life flow in you, overflowing rivers of living water through you to the ends of the earth. Then knowledge of God and his glory can flow, covering the earth like water covered the old seas. Moses’ glory faded and ended so that at the END he had to wear a VEIL to MASK the end of the old covenant law; Jesus brought the NEW to earth and Christ UNVEILS you to behold the glory and be changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who IS the Spirit! If you know religion but don’t know God and his glory through Jesus by the Holy Spirit, you remain in the cursed satanic TREE and it requires continuous sacrifices to take away sins, and DENIES Christ therefore antichrist. Jesus died on the Cross ONCE for ALL human beings and we ACCESS God our Father THROUGH Jesus’ broken body and blood shed for us. Those who continue to offer sacrifices are anti-Christ therefore under the old law of sin, death and the works of the devil. We are seeing the fruits of the spirit of error now.
Lambs were physically sacrificed in the old covenant for sin; the last physical sacrifice was the last Adam, Jesus, and being the Word in the flesh, the Son, the Christ, the Messiah for all people, tribes, races, tongues and nations, satisfied ALL laws and prophesies so EVERY human being can come to Jesus and receive complete redemption, forgiveness of sins and a place in Christ, and receive Christ in you by the Holy Spirit sent to true believers with sincere, humble hearts of repentance. God our Father plants his Christ in our hearts and activates the growth by the Holy Spirit; growing into maturity in Christ on the Vine tended by the Vinedresser, our Father. The forms of religion without the Power are dead; the body without the spirit is dead; faith without doing the works of Jesus and greater works by the Holy Spirit is DEAD. Without the Spirit there is no power or wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge of God and his glory, or fear of the Lord that becomes reverential awe when you come to know the Love of Christ BEYOND KNOWLEDGE to be filled with all the fullness of God as the Holy Spirit works in and through you greater than you can ask or think. One degree in the glory is a 180 degree turn; eyes opened, turned from darkness to light, turned from the power of satan to the Power of God, knowing you are forgiven and knowing your place in the one Body flowing with the one Spirit of God, in Christ, by the Holy Spirit (Acts 26:12-18).
Saul encountered the Living Glorified Christ and everything changed; God is not partial, in that what he did for one he will do for all, if you simply believe and do not fear. This is probably why the enemy of our souls TEMPTS so many to fear the Holy Spirit and quench the Spirit, despise prophesy and reject the testimony of Jesus, the spirit of prophesy. “Always pray and do not lose heart” (Luke 18:1). “Do not fear, only believe” (Mark 5:36b). God keeps you in perfect peace when your mind stays in Christ and you trust God our Father (Isaiah 26:3). God did not give you a spirit of fear or timidity, but HIS Spirit of Power and of Love and a sound Mind of Christ that renews as it transforms (Romans 12:1-2). Do not conform to this world; conform to Christ who saves, heals, redeems, justifies, sanctifies, delivers, sets free, glorifies; grace upon grace and glory to glory, for those who use their free will to stop conforming to this present dark fallen corrupt world system and conform to Christ; born again of God, of Water and Spirit of Life; born again anew from Above every morning afresh in the Holy Spirit with and in you, and when you ask and receive the baptism of Jesus, the Holy Spirit and fire, you are endued with Power, clothed with Power, to do the works of Jesus and even greater works because he went to the Father and sends the Holy Spirit, even the Spirit of Truth to guide you into all the Truth. Jesus says he has much to say to you, but you can’t bear it yet. The truth is you are being sinned against by those who oppress human beings, enslave souls, traffic children, perform demonic satanic rituals involving children to give dark, evil power and youth to those who are pushing a false, luciferian narrative, using a virus and inciting racial division where there is NO DIVISION in Christ of God our Father, BUT do not conform to this world, the demonic response is the wide, easy way of this world: BLAME others, SHAME others, GUILT and CONDEMN others when the TRUTH is there are no “others” in Christ, for all who are baptized INTO CHRIST are one body and one Spirit with God our Father and will not suffer the wrath of God coming upon the whole world to try the hearts of all who are on earth (Revelation 3:7-21). The narrow Way is the Way of Jesus to the Father, receiving the Holy Spirit and the KEYS to the kingdom that shut the doors to evil and open the Door to the Father: open, direct ACCESS to the Throne of Grace to ask and receive the River of Water of Life from the Throne; every good endowment and every perfect gift coming down from the Father of lights (those in Christ are salt and light) without variation or shadow due to change; by the Word of Truth we are CHANGED into a kind of first fruits of Christ’s new creatures, of the new creation, of the new covenant in Jesus’ Blood; a new blood line of God our Father, royal, righteous, holy, pure, complete in Christ and Christ in you, Who is perfect and holy: what no one can be without Jesus our Eternal Father, Almighty God, Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace, who has the government of God on his shoulders, so when we come to Christ we can take the River of Water of Life and be governed by Christ under God, indivisible from God. Apart from Christ you can do nothing; the “double-minded”: one foot in the world system and one foot in Christ, receive nothing. We give Jesus everything; we ask and receive all of Christ into all of our spirit and soul and body and life and community and church and city and state and nation; asking the Father to reveal anything that is not of Christ so it can be brought to NOTHING by the Holy Spirit who forms Christ in you.
“The darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining. He who says he is in the light and HATES other people is in the darkness still” 1 John 2:8-11. Blaming others is the sign you are blinded by this world system, walking in darkness, and not able to bear the personal responsibility and accountability for your sins of hatred, malice, shaming others, guilting and condemning others when only satan condemns; Holy Spirit convicts so you can repent and come back to the Truth of God found in Christ and Christ in you. When you come to KNOW God through Christ by the Holy Spirit, you are able to overcome the evil one (1 John 2:12-14), stand strong by putting on the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18): Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Faith, the Word of God, the Sword of the Spirit, that cuts to every division and thought and intention of your HEART (Hebrews 4:12) so you can give it to Jesus and receive all of Christ into all of you. “Do not love the world or the things of this world. If any one loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of this world. And the world PASSES AWAY, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of the God ABIDES FOREVER” 1 John 2:15-17
The old heavens and earth and seas pass away in Christ and Christ in you; the Word of God abiding in you never passes away; Christ is the Word made flesh, the kingdom of God known: righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Messiah for all people; sin, death and the works of the devil are DESTROYED, conquered, overcome, defeated, disarmed, and triumphed over in the glorious, victorious, powerful, wonder-working power of the Blood, Name, Testimony of the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, that becomes our testimony as the spirit of prophesy, and we come from death to life IN CHRIST (John 5:24) having HEARD the Words of Jesus and BELIEVING him, given eternal life now and is to come. Every one who has HEARD and LEARNED from the Father [the Holy Bible] comes to Jesus, the resurrection life and Spirit of God (John 6:45-63). Those who reject The Words of Jesus, draw back and no longer follow Christ (John 6:66). Those who come to Christ and drink of the River, have rivers of Christ’s Living Water flowing out of their heart (John 7:37-39). “Truly, truly, I say to you, if any one keeps My Word, he will NEVER see death and NEVER taste death” John 8:51
Those who TASTE and SEE that God is all Good, see and behold his glory, are changed from one degree to another; 180 degrees from darkness to Christ’s marvelous Light (1 Peter 1:3-2:12).
