This dark world, with thick darkness upon her people, is rampant with exiting, playing the victim card, and increasingly playing the race card, when this “card” game is rooted in satan, who tempts you with his cards in hoping you will play them, keeping the door open to further stealing, killing, and destroying your life. The root cause of all suffering has not changed from the beginning of the fall of the “first Adam”, a living being, beguiled, tricked, fooled into thinking God’s created image and likeness LACKED something, and that the creation could do better than the Creator: The Lie from the pit of hell; causing the created being to doubt God, lusting after something he thought he didn’t have, and put himself above God (pride comes before a fall) and be put into exile (separation from God) just as lucifer the fallen angel who took 1/3rd of the angels with him is; TEMPTING every human creation to follow the ruse, believe the lie and manipulation of the truth, instead of coming to Jesus, following Christ, reconciling with God the Father, the Creator of heaven and earth and all life, and receiving the HOLY Spirit to replace the spirit of this world, the spirit of error from the god of this world who blinds minds of unbelievers, veils those who are perishing so they can’t see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, the exact image and likeness of God, to follow The Way, The Truth, The Life, The Christ, to new, resurrection life and Spirit, the Door open to God our Father, AND the doors opened by doubting God and trusting the lies of the father of lies are shut, so that no one can open them (Isaiah 22:22; Revelation 3:7; John 10:9).
Jesus gives you the power to escape when tempted by the devil (1 Corinthians 10:13) when you are participating in the Blood of Jesus, in the Name/Nature of Jesus, in Christ in God, in the Water of Life and the Spirit of Life, the Spirit of Holiness, the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of God our Father and his Christ, the Spirit of the Lord and his anointing that brings good news, binds up the broken hearted, frees the captives and prisoners of satan, declares the year of the Lord’s favor for born again believers and the day of vengeance for evil, comforting those who mourn, giving beauty for ashes, oil of gladness and dancing and joy for tears in the night, giving a mantle of praise for a faint spirit beat down by the spirit of this world, making you a garden springing up (Isaiah 61:1-11) in the Vineyard of God our Father, the Holy Spirit having established, formed, maintained, sustained, and kept the Vine of Christ alive and well in you, to blossom and FRUIT light, righteousness, peace, and joy IN the HOLY Spirit, bearing fruit of the Spirit that remains.
Thank God who gives us the Victory over the tempter through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord (and the greater work of the HOLY Spirit)…prospering spirit and soul and body and life…a wide open Door for effective work…at ease…taking the opportunities given by the Lord…Be watchful, STAND FIRM in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all you do be done in Love…converted to Christ [not conformed to this world]…devoted…refreshed in Spirit…the church in your house [the Holy Spirit dwelling in your earthen vessel, making you a new holy temple of God, a temple of the HOLY Spirit within you have FROM GOD 1 Cor 3:16, 6:19]…”Our Lord come! The grace of the Lord Jesus with you” (1 Cor 15:57-16:23).
“Have no dealings with the world for the form of this world is passing away…Secure your undivided devotion to the Lord” 1 Cor 7:31, 35
I remind you of the WAYS in Christ [who is The Way to the Father]; teach the kingdom of God that does not consist of talk but in POWER…Do not celebrate festivals with the OLD leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the hidden manna of Christ in sincerity and truth (1 Cor 4:17-20, 5:8). “God reveals through the Spirit what eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived; what is prepared for those who love God and are called to his Purpose (1 Cor 2:9-10). He works for good what the enemy meant for evil (Romans 8:28). If God is for you, none can be against you (8:31); born again OF God you have overcome them, for Christ in you is greater than he who is in this world (1 John 4:4). God our Father makes Christ Jesus the new, powerful Source of our new resurrection life, our new right spirit, our wisdom, our righteousness, sanctification, and redemption (1 Cor 1:30). God supplies ALL our needs out of the riches of the glory of Christ (Philippians 4:19).
“From now on, therefore, [in Christ] we regard no one from a human point of view…Therefore, IF any one is IN Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new HAS COME. ALL this is FROM GOD, who THROUGH Christ reconciled us to HIMSELF” (2 Cor 5:16-18). “In that day you will KNOW that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you” John 14:20). Jesus gives you of his glory so you can see and be changed and be one with Father and Son through the HOLY Spirit (John 17:22-23).
“Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. EVERY good endowment and EVERY perfect gift come down FROM the Father of lights” (James 1:16-17); purity, knowledge, forbearance, kindness, the HOLY Spirit, genuine love, truthful speech, and the POWER of God, with the weapons of RIGHTEOUSNESS for both the right and left hands IN CHRIST (2 Cor 6:6-7).
Apart from Christ you are still separated from God, and the left hand is separated from the right hand; satan’s tree is the knowledge of good AND evil, where the “good” of lucifer is really masked or disguised evil meant to lure, deceive, tempt you away from the ALL Goodness of God we can taste AND see in Christ and Christ in you. The evil of the father of lies is pure evil meant to steal, kill and destroy the image and likeness of God in you, destroying your life. The angel of darkness disguises himself as an angel of light to make a slave of you, keep you in bondage to sin, death and the works of the devil, preying upon you, and taking advantage of you (2 Cor 11:13-20) through your own unforgiven, unrepentant sin and trespasses, AND those who sin against you, steal, kill, and try to destroy you; people who are vulnerable to being USED by not knowing God, just knowing about God as another concept or idols that cannot save, redeem, heal, deliver, or set free from sin and falling short of the glory.
When satan gets you to use the victim card, the race card, the division card, the “they did me wrong” card, disrespect card, woke to satan cards, if you try to just remove the offenders or offenses, the door remains open for seven more worse spirits to come on assignment, using you as host. When you blame, shame, guilt or condemn others, trying to make yourself look better through self-righteousness, you have given satan the advantage over your life, and are conforming to this world system instead of coming to Jesus and reconciling with God as Father, so he can send you the HOLY Spirit who we DO want to host.
Be bold and confident in CHRIST, not having to play satan’s cards in his global game trying to take over people and nations right now, especially using the fear of death card, anxiety and worry card, depression and suicidal thoughts card, and DIVISION cards (Jude verses 4-19); for though we live IN the world we are no longer OF the world IN Christ Jesus. We no longer wage warfare because of external characteristics, race, color of skin, tribe, tongue, nation, or people group, because the weapons of our warfare in Christ are SPIRITUAL, with real POWER to cast down strongholds of satan, and come into the REFUGE, Fortress, strong Tower of Christ above every mountain of this world, taking the River and partaking of the new nature IN Christ, with the DIVINE POWER to destroy satan’s strongholds on minds, hearts, and choices/desires. We destroy worldly arguments using the victim card and race card and stop playing global game of satan by coming to Christ and returning to God our Father and receiving the Spirit of Truth to guide us into all the truth (2 Cor 10:2-8; John 16:12-13). “Thanks be to God for his inexpressible Gift!” (2 Cor 9:15). “Thanks be to God, who IN CHRIST, always leads us in triumph” (2 Cor 2:14).
You don’t need to air your dirty laundry if you come to Jesus and receive a new right spirit, a new soul (mind, heart, will), a new garment to cover new wine in new wineskins, and leave the old in the past in the tomb with the first Adam, resurrecting life and Spirit through the Word made flesh in the last Adam, Jesus, who is now a life-giving Spirit, giving resurrection life and Spirit through the living Word, in the Spirit, no longer OF this world, but OF heaven on earth; a new ROYAL citizen of heaven living in a body on earth, founded on Christ Jesus’ finished work of the Cross, built up according the Cornerstone of Christ, branches above the highest heavens in Christ, roots deep in the wellspring of Jesus, trunk in the one pillar of fire and glory of Christ, a tree of life; tasting and seeing; knowing beyond knowledge, peace beyond understanding, fruiting fruits of righteousness, fruit of light, and fruit of the Spirit that remain. Eager expectation of seeing the glory of the Lord in the land of the living; knowing the Plans and Purposes of God: in Christ prospering of your spirit and soul and body and life instead of satan’s harm, hurt, scars, wounds, mental disorders, emotional disorders, twisted thinking, perverted desires and choices that do not come from God from ABOVE. Satan causes you to burn bridges; God makes the bridge to forgiveness and reconciliation through JESUS.
“Come, for all is ready…taste My banquet” ~Jesus in Luke 14:17, 24
If you are unable to taste and see, know beyond knowledge, God is just a concept to you, not a Living Spiritual Reality more real than the physical world you can see, lived by faith through grace upon grace out of the FULLNESS of God in Christ in you by the HOLY Spirit. Knowing God is ABLE, changes everything, through the HOLY Spirit. All are invited; most make excuses and refuse to come, rather continuing to play the victim card or race card or self-pity card. Division in a family is a calling card to come to Jesus, not manifest sympathy and try to get people on your “side” for letting satan rule and reign in your spirit and soul and body and life. Satan causes all division, sin is unbelief in Jesus. Satan is the root cause; sin is the culprit when you give in to satan’s temptation to air your dirty laundry and play his cards. Jesus says, “Come to Me when you hate your mother or father, spouse or children, brothers or sisters (Luke 14:26-33) and become My disciple by denying SELF, picking up your cross, your burdens, hurts, wounds, mental, emotional or physical dis-ease, and follow Jesus to nail them to the cursed tree of fallen Adam and the father of lies, bury them in the tomb, and resurrect to new life in Christ, as disciple.
