Thank you Abba Father for fresh Water and Spirit! Your holy, righteous, pure river of resurrection life and glorified Spirit of Christ!
Born anew from Above, new wine is put into new wineskins; the old is gone, behold the new has come; we receive into ourselves the life that was not there before we come to Jesus and receive all of Christ into all our body and soul and spirit and life. We receive Christ in us, born of internal spiritual perception (Oswald Chambers). “When your eye is sound, your whole body is full of light; but when it is not sound, your body is full of darkness” (Luke 11:34). It is not WHAT you see, but HOW you see it, that determines your reality. When the Lamb of God becomes the lamp of your eye and his glory your light, you can see as God has called you to see, through the finished work of the Cross of Jesus; unveiled to see the glory of the Lord and be changed.
We put on the new white garment of Christ’s pure, holy, righteous, spotless resurrection life and Spirit; covering the gold refined by fire; taking the eye salve, anointed eyes to see (Revelation 3:18)
Apart from Christ we can do nothing, but born again of God, of Water and of Spirit we drink of Christ’s River of water of life. Under the fresh, pure, holy River of his Spirit there is a continuous flow of God’s goodness and grace; Christ’s glory and grace; seeing in the Water the face of Christ, the presence of Christ, the glory that changes us from the inside out. The Spirit makes our body a new holy temple of God, where Holy Spirit dwells. We stop looking for the kingdom “out there” and ask and receive the kingdom of God and his righteousness within, coming under the kingship of the Lord Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords who rules and reigns as the Head of the Body, flowing with the Spirit.
“Except you be born again, you cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). Do I seek signs of the Kingdom, or do I perceive God’s rule? The new birth gives new power of vision whereby I begin to discern God’s rule. His rule was there all the time, but true to His nature; now that I have received His nature, I can see His rule…The effective working of the new birth in us is that we do not commit sin, not merely that we have the power not to sin, but that we have stopped sinning; 1 John 3:9 does not mean we cannot sin; it means that IF we obey the life of God in us, we need not sin” (Oswald Chambers).
We stop trying to be righteous, pure and holy and take it by faith through grace, as we realize it is our greatest desire to yoke with Christ who is righteous, pure and holy, who knocks on the door of the soul submitted to God alone. When he comes to live in you the Holy Spirit forms Christ in you, who is the King of kings and Lord of lords of the kingdom that is righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. In the River of Water of Life there is every good endowment and every perfect gift coming down from the Father of lights; the Word of Truth like a river bearing fruit and growing; a tree of resurrection life the day you hear and understand the grace of God in Truth (Colossians 1:5-6). The Word of Truth brings us forth as a kind of first fruits of his creatures (James 1:16-18) receiving the implanted Word: hearing, doing, being (vs 21-22). Ask and receive; seek and find; knock and the Door opens to the Water and the Spirit of resurrection Life; the Will of God through the Word of Truth making you a kind of first-fruit creature of the new creation of the new covenant in Jesus the First Born’s Blood. We come under the rule and reign and governance and dominion and power and authority of the King of Glory in Christ and Christ in you. Unveiled by Christ, we raise holy hands from a pure heart in praise, worship and beholding the glory of the Lord; changed from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:12-18).
“To set the mind on the flesh is DEATH, but to set the mind on the Spirit is LIFE and peace…You are NOT in the flesh if you are IN the Spirit, if in FACT the Spirit of God dwells in you. Any one who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him…Who gives you LIFE to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit who dwells in you…all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God…receiving the spirit of sonship…heirs…suffer with him in order to also be glorified with him…called according to his purpose…conformed to the image of the Son, the First Born of MANY…called, justified AND glorified…God gave us ALL things with Christ…who intercedes for us…more than conquerors…not separated from the Love of God in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:5-39). “Know the Love of Christ that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled with ALL the fullness of God. Now to him by the POWER at work WITHIN US is able to do far more abundantly than ALL that we ask or think, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to ALL generations” Ephesians 3:19-21
“Sanctify them in the Truth; Thy Word is Truth. As you sent Me, I send them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate Myself, that they also may be consecrated in Truth. I pray from these and also for those who believe in Me by their word, that they may be one; even as Thou Father are in Me and I in thee…The glory you have given Me I give to them…be with Me where I am, beholding My glory…the Love with which You love Me may also be in them and I in them” John 17:17-26
“The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come.’ And let those who hear say, ‘Come.’ Come and the thirsty take the Water of Life without price” Revelation 22:17
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they are satisfied” Matthew 5:8
The River of Water and Spirit never stops flowing when you are born again of God. We enter the River through the broken body of Jesus on the cursed tree; we die and bury the past with Jesus; we resurrect with the Living Holy One, with a new heart and righteous spirit; sanctified wholly spirit and soul and body at his appearing. Holy Spirit reveals the glorified Christ and seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ we are changed (unlike those whom the god of this world blinds minds to be unable to see). Only Christ can unveil you to see and be changed (2 Cor 3:12-4:4) so the LIFE of Jesus can be manifest in your body and have the same Spirit of Faith; raised with Christ (2 Cor 4:6-14; Ephesians 2:1-6).
“Beloved, I pray that all is well and all may go well with you and that you may be in health; I know it is well with your soul…Follow the Truth…Be fellow workers in the Truth…Receive the Truth from The Truth itself; I testify to resurrected Christ Jesus too” 3 John 1:2-12
“I pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His Will in ALL spiritual wisdom and understanding, to lead a life worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God [and his glory]. May you be strengthened with ALL power, according to His glorious Might, for all endurance and patience with Joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness AND transferred us to the kingdom of his Beloved Son…the First Born from the dead…preeminent. For in Jesus ALL the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and THROUGH Christ to reconcile TO HIMSELF ALL THINGS on earth and in heaven…NOW RECONCILED in Christ’s BODY [resurrected, glorified flesh] in order to present you holy and blameless and irreproachable…provided you CONTINUE in THE FAITH, stable and steadfast, NOT SHIFTING from the hope of the gospel which HAS BEEN PREACHED to every creature under heaven…Make the Word of God fully known, the mystery hidden for ages and generations, but NOW MADE MANIFEST to his saints…the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you…to present every one mature IN CHRIST…with all the energy he mightily inspires in me…hearts encouraged…riches of assured understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery IN CHRIST, in whom are hid ALL the treasures of wisdom and knowledge…RECEIVE CHRIST…live IN HIM, rooted and built up IN HIM…See to it no one makes a PREY of you by philosophy, psychology, corrupted science, human tradition, the elemental spirits of the universe and not according to Christ (anti-Christ). For IN CHRIST the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and YOU COME TO FULLNESS OF LIFE IN HIM, who is the Head of ALL rule and authority…disarmed and triumphed OVER [the evil one] IN CHRIST… Hold fast to the HEAD, let your whole body be nourished and knit together with Christ, growing with growth from God. IF with Christ you DIED to the elemental spirits of the universe, WHY DO YOU STILL LIVE like you belong to the world? or submit to human precepts and doctrines?” Colossians 1:9-23
Come out of the world system/hidden babylon, lest you take part in her sins; lest you share in her plagues, under her sorcery and murder (Revelation 18:1-24). Come to Christ, repent, receive forgiveness, become who God created and restored by the finished work of the Cross; be born again of God, of Water and of Spirit, no longer of the flesh and blood of fallen Adam, but of the resurrected, ascended, glorified flesh and pure Blood and Water and Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ; a new creature of the new creation of the new covenant in Jesus’ pure, holy, perfect (lacking nothing), complete, righteous Blood that transfers you from the fallen, tainted, corrupted, altered blood-line of this broken, dark world and thick darkness her people, to the royal, heavenly Family of God our Father and his Christ on earth as it is in heaven. Amen. Hallelujah!
