The Truth never changes, people change: either they move away from God or they move closer to God. Now is the time to get saved if you are not saved, and move closer to God if you are already saved. Look up for your redemption draws nigh or near!
It is righteousness that leads to peace; and peace leads to joy in the Holy Spirit, despite what is going on in the world, in the midst of circumstances there is, like the eye of the storm, the place in Christ where there is unfailing, everlasting love, perfect peace, stillness, silence, safety, security, and knowing that in Christ and Christ in you, you are in good hands with Jesus, in the Right Hand of God, whose Arm stretches out still; whose one Body and one Spirit is the place where the devil can have no place. Find your place in Christ to find rest in God. “For good news came to us just as to them; but the message they heard did not benefit them, because it did not meet with faith in the hearers. For we who believe enter that rest…Since therefore it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly received the good news failed to enter because of disobedience, again, he sets a certain day, ‘Today,’ saying, ‘Today when you hear his Voice, do not harden your hearts’…Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, that no one fall by the same sort of disobedience. For the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the HEART. And before him no creature is hidden, but all are open and laid bare to the eyes of God. Since we have the great High Priest in the order of Melchizedek, High Priest FOREVER, let us draw near to the Throne of grace and glory, that we may receive mercy and find grace to HELP in time of need.
This is a great time of need, so look UP, for our help comes from ABOVE; do not look to the left or to the right, but look to God, knowing the Word of God is made manifest in Jesus who is our Champion who has already conquered, overcome, and triumphed! Call on the Name of Jesus and be saved, the Name above every name that can be named. One day every knee with bow, every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord! “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father but by Me. If you know Me you know the Father” ~Jesus in John 14:6-7
Seek help from the Lord; our help comes from Above, and the weapons of our warfare are spiritual, not carnal; not worldly war but the weapons of righteousness for both the left hand and the right hand. The Word of God, the sharp Sword of the Spirit is a weapon. Prayer is a weapon. Worship is a weapon. Led by the Holy Spirit, binding and loosing are weapons; keys to the kingdom. Standing still, taking your position of righteousness in Christ who is in God, watching for the victory of the Lord on your behalf, praising God, ‘Giving thanks to the Lord, for his steadfast love endures forever’ are weapons of warfare (2 Chronicles 20:1-30). Ask and receive; seek and find; knock and the door opens.
We take the whole armor of God: Truth, Righteousness, Salvation, Faith, Gospel of Peace, Word of God, the Sword of the Spirit; the full armor of light; the wall of fire as we put on the Lord Jesus Christ. We tear down every high place and every imagination that exalts itself above God; tear down every idol; tear down every ungodly altar; taking every thought captive to obey Christ in righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit; the kingdom of God found within. The kingdom of God cannot be observed externally so that you say, “Lo! there it is” or “Lo, here it is!” for the kingdom of God is found with and in you (Luke 17:20-21). Where Christ is, the kingdom of God is, and where the kingdom of God is, the King of kings and Lord of lords is!
Those in Christ share in the inheritance of the saints in light; delivered from the dominion of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of the Beloved Son, where redemption, the forgiveness of sins is found (Colossians 1:12-13), until all the enemies of God are under Jesus’ feet, then he delivers his kingdom and his beloveds into the Kingdom of our Father in heaven (1 Corinthians 20-34). “Do not be deceived: ‘Bad company ruins good morals.’ Come to your right mind, and sin no more. For some have no knowledge of God…There are celestial bodies and there are terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for stars differ from stars in glory. So it is with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is imperishable, but what is RAISED is imperishable. It is sown in dishonor, it is RAISED in glory. It is sown in weakness, it RAISED in power. It is sown on earth in a physical body, it is RAISED a spiritual body…The first Adam became a living being [when God breathed into him]; the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit…The first man was made of dust; the second man, Jesus is made from heaven. As WAS the man of dust, so are those who are still of the dust; so ARE those who are OF heaven OF Christ [born again OF God]…we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven…flesh and blood can’t inherit the kingdom of God, nor do the perishable inherit the imperishable” 1 Corinthians 15:35-56
Jesus taught, and Holy Spirit reveals, that you must be born again of God, of Water and Spirit, to see and enter the kingdom of God. We are unveiled by Christ to see the glory of the Lord and be changed from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the SPIRIT (2 Cor 3:1-18). “Through him you have CONFIDENCE IN GOD, who RAISED him from the dead and gave him GLORY, so that your FAITH and HOPE are in God. Having purified your souls by your OBEDIENCE to the TRUTH…born anew, not of perishable seed by IMPERISHABLE SEED, through the living and abiding Word of God…the Word of the Lord that abides forever” 1 Peter 1:21-25
Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things are added unto you. It is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”Come to Me; take My yoke; learn from Me, and find rest for your soul” (~ Jesus in Matthew 11:28). In Christ we find rest for our mind and our heart and our will as we surrender all to Jesus, submit all to God our Father, be led by the Holy Spirit to do the Will of the Father on earth as it is in heaven. Submission to God is powerful freedom, yoked to Christ Jesus; do not submit again to a yoke of slavery: bondage to the father of lies, the devil, influenced by his satanic deception, luciferian manipulation, demonic spirits, assignments of the enemy sent against you, fiery darts, darkness disguised as light, servants of satan masked as servants of righteousness, control by fear, anxiety, depression, confused identity, doubt, uncertainty, intimidation, threats, temptation, and grains of truth mixed with a lot of lies to negate the grains, mixed messages, Hegelian dialects: thesis, antithesis, and synthesis, instead of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; the three that are One, Holy, Perfect, Pure, Unfailing, Living, Active, Powerful, Wisdom, Insight, Revelation Truth; the Absolute Truth of our Creator of heaven and earth and all life. There are a plurality of relative truths, but they can not save you. Jesus saves!
Raise the standard of Righteousness over the earth. Take the weapons of righteousness in your left hand and your right hand. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken; everything that can be burned will be consumed, until only Christ in you remains; for our God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:12-29). “See that you do not refuse him who is speaking” (Hebrews 12:25). Come to the Living God, innumerable holy angels, assemblies of the first born, the judge who is God of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of the NEW COVENANT, and to his Blood (Hebrews 12:22).
The kingdom of God and his righteousness, Christ in you, the glory within, the fire of protection around you in Christ, is unshakable, immoveable, unconsumable; a fiery presence of God’s pure Love, God’s holy Love, God’s true Love, God’s perfect Love; our First Love. God’s Love never fails, never abandons, never betrays, never leaves, never lies, never deceives, never manipulates, never controls, but through free will gives you the freedom to choose God every morning anew, afresh, alive, awake, aware that there is nothing like our God; nothing else can satisfy; nothing else can fulfill; no mixtures, just pure, unadulterated Light of Life and Life more abundant; the glorified, fiery Presence of the Living One alive forever with the Keys of Death and Hades. Who opens the Door to God our Father that no one can shut, and closes the doors to evil that no one can open. Come to the Freedom in Christ and never submit to a yoke of bondage of slavery again (Galatians 5:1).
No weapon formed against us can prosper; all lies are refuted and confuted. Nothing is too hard for God. If God is for us then who can be against us. What the enemy meant for evil, God turns for our Good. “Son, you are with me always, and all that is mine is yours” (Luke 15:31). We are not waring with natural weapons; our battle is not against flesh and blood, but spiritual. The devil is defeated by the Spirit of the Lord, The Word of the Lord, the Sword of the Spirit, the Blood of the Lamb, the words of our testimony, and not loving our lives unto death, but being born again of God. When we CONQUER unbelief, we are not hurt by the second death (Revelation 2:11), granted to eat of the tree of life in the paradise of God (2:7), receive hidden manna and a white stone and a new name (17); keeping Jesus’ works to the end we are given power, even as Jesus received power from his Father (26) and receive the morning star rising in your heart (Revelation 2:28; 2 Peter 1:19), be clad in white garment and your name not blotted out of the book of life (3:5), made a pillar in Christ that God never goes out of (12), and granted to be seated with Christ in heavenly places (Revelation 3:21; Ephesians 2:1-6).
Where is your faith? is it in Jesus? or is it in the things going on in the world around you? Don’t let the little foxes steal from your Vineyard; don’t drink the old wine when the new has come; don’t let the giants scare you from using your stone; our Rock is Jesus! God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness. Nothing by any means shall harm you, when you are given Holy Spirit Power to tread upon scorpions and serpents; Wisdom from Above to know what to do and when to do it.
Christ Jesus’ Name is above every name that can be named in heaven and on earth; King of kings and Lord of lords; Bridegroom King of Glory to the Bride, the new city of habitation of the Holy Spirit of God our Father and his Christ. “Do you not know that you are a temple of the Holy Spirit WITHIN, that you have from God?” “Do you not know that you are a holy new temple of God when the Holy Spirit dwells in you?” Examine yourself. Is the Lord Jesus Christ living within your spirit and soul and body and life? Test yourself to see whether your faith is IN God our Father. Tested faith becomes pure gold refined by fire!
Abba Father, Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen. Glory, glory, hallelujah! the Truth is marching on!
Tie your faith and hope to one man, the Lord Jesus Christ!
