Get your bearings; can you bear it; how are you bearing up; bearing burdens; bear market; bear/bare necessities; bearing all; David killed the bear and lion before he knew he could kill the giant with one stone; can you bear the truth yet? are you bearing the fruit of Christ Light, Righteousness, and Spirit yet, on the Vine of Christ, or are you still bearing fruit of satan’s tree of the knowledge of good and evil: mixed fruit that makes old wine, instead of the new wine of the new covenant of the new creatures of the new creation of crucified, buried, resurrected, ascended, glorified Christ Jesus, who is at the Right Hand of God our Father, high above the highest heavens; given the Name above all names that can be named, with satan under his feet?
Remaining in fallen Adam under the father of lies, you bear burdens God never meant you to carry. When you come to Jesus you are invited (never forced) to give him ALL your burdens and take his yoke that is “easy” and his burdens that are “light”, as you learn Christ from Christ, and find REST. In Christ and Christ in you, our Father is God; apart from Christ the “father” is still the subtle “serpent” disguised as light who tricked, fooled, deceived, lied, manipulated the Word of God to get Adam and Eve to give up their identity AND inheritance of God. Apart from Christ, the “god” of this world rules disobedience and lawlessness by the spirit of error, whose lord and master is lucifer who is darkness disguised as light, whose servants disguise/mask themselves as righteous but serve satan. Come out of “mystery babylon” the haunt of demons, fallen angels, and foul spirits, lest you take part in her sins; lest you share in her plagues, lest you remain under her sorcery, and have the blood of all those slain on earth on your hands and head, and come to judgment and the wrath of God on the last day. But God! did not destined human beings to wrath, and when you come to Christ Jesus you take his God and Father as your own, as you are called, set apart, and receive the fulfillment and manifestation of the fulfillment of the law, prophesies and promises of God found in Christ, CHOOSING to belong to Christ as a beloved saint, having asked and received God’s mercy, grace, goodness, and peace from the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 1:1-7). Becoming God’s own children who grow up to be mature sons who inherit all the Father has, and mature brides who are one flesh and one Spirit with the Son of Righteousness who rises in you with healing wings to go forth in peace, led by the Holy Spirit in joy (Malachi 4:1-3; Romans 14:17), in Christ whom God makes the Source of our new resurrection life, new Spirit, our wisdom, our righteousness, sanctification, and redemption (1 Cor 1:30).
Through Jesus and the finished work of the Cross we become God’s building, God’s field, God’s HOUSE (1 Corinthians 3:9-17, 6:13b-20; 2 Cor 13:4-5; Hebrews 3:6): where Holy Spirit RIVER continuously flows FRESH water of life in you to replace the old polluted seas, old corrupted forms, and old twisted mindsets of unclean spirits. The light of the gospel of the glory of Christ is the POWER for salvation to every one who has FAITH; for in it the RIGHTEOUSNESS of God is REVEALED through faith, for faith: evidence, substance, and assurance of the unseen of God! Through faith we die to sin and come alive to righteousness (1 Cor 15:22-49) and begin to live as a part of Christ’s one Body and one Spirit and truly begin a new life as a new creature: the two become one new creation in Christ! “Christ was FAITHFUL over God’s House as a Son. And we are his house IF we hold fast our confidence and pride in our hope FIRM TO THE END” Hebrews 3:6
The END of fallen Adam in you is the BEGINNING of Christ in you. “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end” ~Jesus the Christ
God confirms the Words and Sayings of Jesus by signs that attend them (Mark 16:20) and BEARS witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the HOLY Spirit distributed according to his own Will (Hebrews 2:4). “The WHOLE WORLD is held accountable to God for now the righteousness of God HAS BEEN MANIFESTED in Christ Jesus; the righteousness of God through FAITH in Jesus Christ for ALL who believe, for there is NO DISTINCTION [in Christ and Christ in you; all one with God; apart from Christ is division, deception, and fear; spirits sent to torment, tempt to sin, pervert, twist, steal, kill, and destroy], since ALL have sinned AND fallen short of the glory of God, so we are justified [just as if we had never sinned] by his GRACE as a GIFT, through the redemption, forgiveness of sins by the expiation by his BLOOD, received by FAITH” (Romans 3:19b-25). “Jesus himself partook of our human nature, that through his DEATH he destroyed him who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver ALL those who through FEAR OF DEATH were subjected to life-long BONDAGE” (Hebrews 2:14-15). Jesus takes our fallen human nature and gives us his nature to take and partake! God is one nature in three persons: Father, Son, Holy Spirit: invisible perfect rest, visible perfect form, perfect movement/flow/river/life/breath/wind/fire/lacking nothing.
The promises of God depend on FAITH, resting on GRACE, guaranteed to all who come to Christ and ask to receive Christ in you so God can become your Father too! He gives resurrection life to the spiritually dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist. Let no distrust make you waver concerning the promises of God, but grow STRONG in the faith of Jesus in God as you give all the glory to God, FULLY convinced that God is ABLE to do what he has promised (Romans 4:16-21).
“IF any one is IN Christ, you are a new creature, the old passes away, behold, the new HAS COME” 2 Corinthians 5:17
Jesus asks, invites, welcomes you to come to him, yoke, learn, find rest, peace, the righteousness of God, and joy in the Holy Spirit; see and enter the kingdom of God and his righteousness by being born again of God, of the Water of Life, AND of the Spirit of God. Today, now, when you hear the Voice of the Holy Spirit, the True Shepherd, the Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world [so coming to him we can give our sins and falling short of the glory to Jesus] listen, HEAR, and gratefully, thankfully, ask and RECEIVE all of Christ, to become a beloved member of Christ in the Family of God our Father, a son who inherits as co-heir with Christ, a royal priesthood of born again believers, a holy nation of born again believers, God’s own, maturing into brides of the King of kings, having COME OUT [not come out in public declaration of sin, going against the Word of God] of darkness into Christ’s matchless, brilliant, marvelous, glorious LIGHT; delivered from the dominion of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of the Beloved Son of Righteousness. The seven spirits from the Throne (Revelation 1:4, 4:5, 5:6) are in ascended, glorified Christ Jesus’ Right Hand and he sent them to earth where those who are to obtain salvation receive them as “ministering spirits sent forth to serve” (Hebrews 1:14); his angel winds of change; his flames of fire are his SERVANTS (Hebrews 1:7).
“I Jesus send you My angel with My testimony” (Revelation 22:16). “The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophesy” (Revelation 19:10). Take Jesus’ Words as the prophesy over your life! Do you take the Word by FAITH? or would you rather keep bearing sin, fear of death, and continuing to do the works of satan instead of doing the works of Jesus? Jesus sends you as the Father sent him into the world (John 17:14-19), once you are no longer OF the world but OF his kingdom of God. “As he is now, so are we in the world” (1 John 4:17) if you are “crucified to the world and the world to you” (Galatians 6:14). “I have been crucified WITH Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives IN me; and the life I NOW live I live by FAITH in the Son of God who loves me and died for me” (Galatians 2:20). “We are in travail until Christ be formed in you” (Galatians 4:19).
“Today when you hear his Voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion” Hebrews 3:7-4:7
Joshua couldn’t give God’s rest; Moses couldn’t enter God’s old covenant promised land; but through Jesus we enter God’s Rest and his Promises through his broken body on the cursed tree into the ascended glorified Body and Spirit of Christ, where we FIND the Word of God made flesh, all the law, prophecies and promises of God fulfilled and manifest, the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all things of Christ added unto us, his Words and his Spirit, his Kingdom, Power and Glory, his righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, God’s River of Water of Life: his perfect, holy, royal Blood (DNA, RNA messengers), Water, Spirit: breath, wind, presence, glory, fire light, oil, eyes to see, endowments, gifts, anointing, equipping, and so much MORE.
In Christ is the river that makes the heart sing for gladness and rejoicing forever; pleasures forever more that make the things of this world pale in comparison; foretastes of glory divine, tasting the heavenly gifts, partakers of the HOLY Spirit, tasting and seeing the Goodness of the Word of God and the Power of the age to come (Hebrews 6:4-5). “You make known to me the Way of resurrection life; making me FULL of gladness with Your Presence” (Acts 2:28); prophesied in Psalm 16:11, and FULFILLED and MANIFESTED IN CHRIST, “Preserve me for I take refuge in God; I have no good APART from Christ. All God’s delight is in those who take delight in the Lord. Those who choose another god MULTIPLY THEIR SORROWS and their names are not on the lips of God. IN CHRIST in God we have a goodly GODLY heritage. I bless the Lord who gives me COUNSEL in the SPIRIT; in the night my redeemed heart instructs me. I keep the Lord always within me in Christ and Christ in me; I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad and my redeemed soul rejoices; my BODY ALSO DWELLS SECURE. For God does not give me up to Sheol, or let his godly ones see the Pit [of hell]. Thou dost show me the Path of Life; in Thy Presence is FULLNESS of joy, in the Thy Right Hand are PLEASURES forevermore.”
Jesus asks, invites, welcomes you to “abide in Me, and I in you.” Why would any one refuse? Because the god of this world BLINDS MINDS of UNBELIEVERS and VEILS the gospel to not be able to see; feeding unbelievers lies, as satan deceives, manipulates, controls by fear, distractions, chaos, crisis after crisis, controls by dumbing down and numbing out with drugs, weed, alcohol, video games, television, internet, media, fallen stars and goats, massive amounts of information, disinformation, and misinformation; control by doubts by casting aspersion on the Word of God, or trying to get you to think the HOLY Spirit sent to born again believers is demonic; the same thing the religious elite of Jesus’ days on earth accused of our perfect, holy Jesus, the Son of God, the Christ, the Anointed Holy One, the Messiah for ALL people, skin colors, tribes, tongues, and nations. Stop listening to the world system of government and religion and come to Jesus and listen to the Voice of the True Shepherd! Jesus isn’t a religion; Jesus is the visible PERSON of the invisible God who created heaven and earth and all life; and we come to relationship with God our Father through Jesus, to receive the HOLY Spirit to teach us and remind us of ALL that Jesus said, taught, and did.
God our Father has Jesus at his right hand, and glorified Christ Jesus has you at his right hand with the seven stars/spirits/angels IF you come to him and CONQUER to be granted to be seated WITH Christ in the heavenly places ( Ephesians 2:6; Revelation 3:21), where satan can have NO PART, and sin, death and the devil are UNDER your feet. Believe and do not fear. With men it is impossible, but WITH GOD all things are possible. All things are possible if you believe. “Did I not tell you that you would see the glory of the Lord if you only believe?” ~Jesus the Son of God
“Attend to our cry to be free from DECEIT! From Thee our vindication comes! You try our hearts and visit us by night…We avoid the ways of the violent. Our steps hold fast to Your Way [Yah Way!]…You wondrously show Thy Steadfast Love, O Savior of those who seek refuge in Your Right Hand from our adversaries. Keep us as the apple of Your Eye; hide us in the shadow of Your Wings from the wicked and enemies who surround us. They close their hearts, and with their mouths they speak arrogantly…They are like lying lions eager to tear, prey upon, devour…lurking to ambush [calling evil “good” and calling good “evil”]. Arise, O Lord! confront them, OVERTHROW them! Deliver our lives from the wicked…As for me, I behold Thy Face in righteousness; when I awake I am satisfied with beholding Thy Form” Psalm 17:1-15
There is great contentment in godliness; there is great suffering and tribulation apart from Christ. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they are SATISFIED” Matthew 5:6
Jesus IS the righteousness of God; in Christ and Christ in you, we do not have to bear unrighteousness anymore! For Jesus takes our burdens because he cares about us, and he mercifully and graciously takes our burdens of this world, for he knows that the “cares of this world” steal the imperishable Seed of the Word so it can’t grow to a tree of life that bears much Christ Fruit: the kingdom of God and his righteousness and peace and joy in the HOLY Spirit, in you.
“Come to Me all who are weary, stressed, fatigued, anxious, depressed, hopeless, helpless, powerless, under attack, tired, ready to give up, at the end of your rope, burdened, and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My Yoke and learn from Me, for I am gentle, compassionate, humble-hearted, and you will FIND rest for your soul: rest for your mind: Peace in Me; rest for your heart: still pure waters where you can see My face and behold My glory and hear My Voice; rest for your will: redeemed choices, redeemed desires, redeemed motivations, redeemed intentions: the FREEDOM to choose God and his righteousness of Christ: dead to sin and alive to righteousness; dead to this world and alive to God in Christ and Christ in you! for My Yoke is easy and My Burden is LIGHT” ~Jesus in Matthew 11:28-29
Don’t put your trust in bears or bulls, elephants or donkeys, but place all your trust in the Lamb of God, the True Shepherd who leads you to the springs of Living Water (Revelation 7:17)! “Come to Me and drink, and out of your heart will flow My River of My glorified Spirit” ~Jesus in John 7:37-39
