The tiniest of Seed of the Word grows into a tree of Life. God’s imperishable Word manifested through Christ, now by the Holy Spirit, is resurrection life and Spirit to those who ask and receive; seek and find; knock and The Door is opened (Matthew 7:7, 24:34-35). The River of God’s Grace and Glory is crystal-clear, fiery, bright, transparent, nourishing, refreshing, renewing, reviving, regenerating; restoring The Living Abiding Word in your purified, refined soul, through the Blood of Jesus, in the eternal covenant of Christ’s Blood that ransoms, saves, justifies, redeems, sanctifies, heals, delivers you from the dominion of darkness, and sets you free to die to sin and live to righteousness (1 Peter 2:24, 4:1-19) ; die to the flesh and come alive in Spirit to live by the Spirit of God, led by the Holy Spirit, no longer led astray, but abiding in Christ and Christ in you, the living abiding Word in you, born anew of imperishable Seed of the Word: resurrection life and Spirit.
Be exceedingly glad, though for a little while you are distressed by trials and suffering temptations, so that the genuineness of your faith may be tested to become more precious than perishable gold that is tested and purified by fire. Believe in Jesus; exult and thrill with inexpressible and glorious, triumphant, heavenly Joy; at the same time you receive the result, full effect, of going THROUGH trials; the outcome and consummation of your faith is the salvation of your soul, and the Spirit of Christ working within you, and the Holy Spirit sent from heaven to teach and lead you, through grace in suffering into the glory; into the things the very angels long to look. So brace up your minds, be sober, morally alert, set your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (divine power) that comes to you when the resurrected, ascended, glorified Lord Christ Jesus is revealed to you. Do not conform yourselves to your former ignorance; do not conform to this world; but conform to Christ by the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit. The One who calls you is holy, so you yourself are to be holy in all your conduct and manner of living. For it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” Invoke Him as your Father. You must know, recognize, that you were redeemed from the useless, fruitless way of living inherited from your biological parents, then purchased with the precious Blood of Jesus chosen and foreordained, destined and foreknown before the foundation of the world; brought to public view, made manifest in these last days (at the end of the times) for YOUR SAKE. Believe, adhere to, rely on, depend on, trust in God, Who raised Jesus from the dead and gave him ALL the power and authority in heaven and on earth, all honor and glory, so that YOUR FAITH and HOPE are centered and REST in God. Be obedient to the Word of Truth that purifies your soul. Love fervently from a purified, refined HEART of pure gold when Christ resides in your heart, therefore, regenerated, born anew, born again, NOT from biological, mortal seed, but from the immortal, imperishable Seed of the Word of God made flesh: the Living Abiding Word of God. The Word of God abides and endures forever; the Good News preached and taught by the Holy Spirit (1 Peter 1:2-25).
“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, establish, settle and strengthen you. To Him be the dominion for ever and ever. Amen” 1 Peter 5:10
