Just barely surviving: Before Christ: B.C. fallen nature due to sin, under the curse, under the father of lies and the spirit of the world
but living hope abounding in A.D. after Christ was born, as everything began to change, and abounding after ~33 A.D. when Jesus took your sin in his broken body on the cursed tree, so that it is possible, NOW and is to come, to die to sin and live to righteousness (1 Peter 2:24) and come alive together WITH Christ, super-abounding in Christ, living in the Day of the Lord: anno Domini, A.D., EVERY day anew in Christ and Christ in you; taken by faith through grace; seeing the glory of the Lord and being changed into his image and likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:18). This is Great News! The Word of God is the Words of Jesus who only said and did what he heard his God and Father say to him. NOW by the HOLY Spirit we can hear what Jesus said and did so we can partner with Christ on earth as it is in heaven to do the Will of our God and Father.
God supplies ALL our needs through the RICHES of the glory of Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).”The riches of the glory of this mystery is Christ in you” (Colossians 1:27). Begin to steward the mysteries of God (1 Corinthians 4:1).
Ask and RECEIVE Christ Jesus the Lord, come alive together with him, and begin to LIVE in him, root deeply in him, and be built up IN HIM, established in the FAITH of Jesus in God our Father, TAUGHT by the Holy Spirit, abounding in thanksgiving to God because it is IMPOSSIBLE for any of this apart from Christ (Colossians 2:6-7). Our total reliance, dependance, and unwavering trust is found in Christ in God. If you continue to live by what you see in the natural, you will miss the Reality of what is in Spirit in Christ in God our Father. If you live by man-made laws and time, doctrines of darkness disguised as light (lucifer), fallen angels, the spirit of this world, and fallen spirits of humans, animals, and demonic spirits, under many idols, many “gods” and many “lords”, you will miss the heavenly Gift (1 Corinthians 8:5; 2 Corinthians 4:4, 11:13-20; 1 John 4:5-6; Ephesians 1:3; Hebrews 6:4-5) outside of Christ, therefore outside of the kingdom of the beloved Son in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:13-14; Revelation 21:8, 22:15; John 10:1-30).
Are you living in the Day of our Lord Jesus Christ, anno Domini? or are you still living in B.C. before Christ, before the finished work of the Cross, in satanic times under man-made laws that disobey and go against God, under the curse, under the father of lies, the devil? (John 8:37-47) In Christ is FOUND every good endowment and every perfect gift, the hidden treasure of God’s wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, power, presence, present, knowledge of God and his glory, reverential awe and wonder, miracles, healing, deliverance (replacing lies with the Truth in the Word by the Spirit), freedom, the kingdom of God and his righteousness, timelessness (Christ Jesus is the same after the Cross in you), now and is to come, when you come to Jesus and receive God as Father and receive HOLY Spirit inhabiting your body, making you a new, holy temple of God where Holy Spirit dwells within; opening the Door to a whole NEW life, moving, living, and having NEW being in Christ and Christ in you, by the Spirit. You don’t have because you don’t really believe, or just intellectually believe, or say you believe but think it is make believe, or put yourself or others above God. You don’t have because you don’t ask in the Will of God on earth as it is in heaven, in Christ.
“He who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. He who does not believe God has made him a liar because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne to his Son. And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God has not life (dead in their sins, under the curse, fathered by lies). I write this to you who believe in the Name of the Son of God, that you may KNOW that you have eternal life. And this is the CONFIDENCE which we have IN HIM that if we ask anything according to his Will he hears us. And if we KNOW that he hears us in whatever we ask, we KNOW that we have obtained the requests made of him…We KNOW that any one born of God does not sin, but He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. WE KNOW that we are OF God, and the whole world is in the power of the evil one” 1 John 5:10-19
In Christ is found everything of God; stop the foolery and popery and come into the Reality of our True Living Holy Righteous Just Perfect Eternal Father revealed by Jesus, and now Holy Spirit revealed through the Words of resurrection life and Spirit. The Words of Jesus are the Words of the invisible Almighty Creator of heaven and earth and all life. The Word made flesh is Jesus (John 1:1-18), who made God KNOWN, who gave us the true Words of God as our natural law through his supernatural Spirit, to live according to God’s Word, no longer in rebellion, lawlessness, or disobedience to the Word of God, therefore at war, in conflict, leading to dis-ease, disorders, dismay, disillusionment, discouragement, chaos, crisis, tribulation, stress, fatigue, weariness, separation, divorce, sin and death. But in Christ and Christ in you, we live united in one Spirit to God, living according to the Will of God on earth as it is in heaven; right relationship to God, right positioning of our heart, right standing with God our Father. Turn to Jesus (repent: turn from the world system) and return to God our Father and receive the HOLY Spirit to replace the spirit of this world, and learn the truth. “The Spirit of Truth will guide you into all the truth” (John 16:13).
Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever; come to Jesus, yoke, learn, find rest for your soul giving life to your body, filled with the HOLY Spirit from God, spirit and soul and body and life. Receiving and knowing Christ’s continuous River of bright, fiery Presence, substance and Spirit, as the unfailing, undying, unending, Perfect, Holy Love of God our Eternal Father. Be still and know; be still and receive from the Fountain of his Presence; be still and commune in intimate relationship; safe, sheltered from the storm in the apple of God’s eye in Christ, refined gold, righteous in the Blood, clean by the Word, regenerated, renewed, and filled by the HOLY Spirit, aglow in the Spirit. God’s treasure is found in Christ, a field of protection, provision, prayer, peace, and the present of his Presence. Let God take you under his Almighty Wings; like a hen gathers her chicks under her wings; feeling God’s Love, Light and Spirit surrounding you, enfolding you in his Perfect Love and Power and Sound Mind.
Rest in Christ in God, as HOLY Spirit works in and through you in the eternal Day of the Lord, anno Domini; blessed, beloved, favored, protected, provided for, prayed and interceded for by the Holy Spirit beyond words AND the High Priest in the order of Melchizedek forever and ever, now and is to come: grace to grace in the fullness of Christ; glory to glory seeing the glory of the Lord and being changed; strength to strength in the Joy of the Lord for enduring the Cross; in faith for faith in Christ, in his righteousness, in his eternal, never-ending resurrection life and Spirit, the kingdom of God within, with the King of kings and Lord of lords, our perfect holy God: nothing lacking, nothing limited, nothing missing, nothing broken, nothing too hard, nothing to fear, nothing impossible in Christ and Christ in you.
Do you believe yet? Blessed are those who do not see and yet believe. I had to see to believe (I was a “tough nut to crack”) but now I know and want the whole world to come to know the eternal, indescribable, unspeakable depth and height and length and breadth of the Divine Gift that is Christ Jesus, that keeps on giving and does not ask for anything in return, but once you taste and see you want to give, as in hungering and thirsting for Christ alone, you are truly satisfied and fulfilled and content with godliness. The things of the world system grow strangely dim and unappealing. Do not quench the HOLY Spirit; the Power of God to make the impossible possible in you.
Be drawn up with Christ (John 12:32) who comes and takes you to Himself (John 14:3b). The resurrection life and Spirit of the Word makes you clean (John 15:3); the fiery Spirit gives you power to transform. “The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come…take the water of life without price” (Revelation 22:17). Jesus already paid the full price; just come as you are and see; come and drink of the River of Christ’s Spirit and fiery Presence and be changed; new wine into new wineskins, clothed in brilliant, radiant, opalescent white of Christ’s Pure Light. See the Light of his glory! “I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in Me doesn’t remain in darkness” (John 12:46). The True Light of Christ enlightens and the darkness cannot overcome it (Jesus in John 1:4-9).
“God qualifies you to share in the inheritance of light with Christ; delivered from the dominion of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of the beloved Son…now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and irreproachable before him, provided you CONTINUE in the faith, stable and steadfast, NOT SHIFTING from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which has been preached to every creature under heaven (Colossians 1:12-23); presented as a pure bride to her One Husband (2 Cor 11:2). “Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you? — unless you fail to meet the test!” 2 Cor 13:5
