When God is a concept, it is dead and lifeless and a law-based, a “have to.” But when God becomes Real to you through the HOLY Spirit, Living, Active, pouring perfect Love from the heart of Christ into your heart by the Holy Spirit, everything changes, and you “get to” spend time with Him, increasing in knowledge and discernment, wisdom and understanding, counsel and might, reverential awe and wonder. The more you know, the more you want to know, more and more!
Knowing about God is far different than receiving the Promise of the Father, clothed with Power from on high, filled with the Pure Spirit of God, the heights of Love, the depths of Peace, the fullness of Joy in His Presence, and from HIS Fullness you receive grace upon grace; glory to glory!
Instead of trying to fit into the world system of beliefs, you stand out (uncomfortably). Jesus says, “You are the light of the world; a city set on a hill.” Do not put a bushel basket over the Light of Christ in you; don’t try and fit in, stand out for Jesus. Arise, shine, for your light has come and the glory of the Lord is rising upon you. Have you tasted and seen the foretastes of glory divine? Have you ever felt the Sun of Righteousness rise on your face, breathed by the Holy Spirit? Have you ever been caught up and changed? Have you ever been so transformed and changed by the Love of Christ that is beyond knowledge, that the things of the world grow strangely dim? Have the fruit of Light, the fruit of the Spirit, and the fruits of righteousness become so ripe that all you want to eat is the Fruit of Christ grown on the Vine of Christ in the Vineyard of God, because it is so satisfying? And you can’t wait until more and more begin to eat of the tree of life instead of the satanic fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Why would the whole world buy into satan’s plans and censor God’s Plans, Purposes, and Promises? Unbelief.
