“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God.
Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:14-21 RSV
Let Wisdom build the house for Power to dwell; she is FIRST pure, then peace-able, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, certain, sincere, yielding a harvest of righteousness (Proverbs 14:1; 1 Corinthians 1:24; James 3:17).
“To those who are called, Christ is both the Power of God and the Wisdom of God” 1 Cor 1:24
“The body is not meant for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his Power. Do you not know that your bodies are MEMBERS of Christ?…The ‘two become one flesh’…He who is united to the Lord becomes one Spirit with him…Do you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit WITHIN you, which you have FROM God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price.So glorify God in your body” 1 Corinthians 6:13b-20
In Christ and Christ in you, you are God’s field, God’s building…Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s SPIRIT dwells in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:9-17
“Examine yourselves, to see whether you are holding to your faith. Test yourselves. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you? — unless you fail to meet the test!” 2 Cor 13:5
You don’t build the Bride who receives her Bridegroom King; Wisdom builds the house for Power to dwell. Man builds edifices to himself; white-washed tombs full of snakes to glorify himself; external towers to reach God that fail and fall. But Wisdom builds the temple where God dwells through the HOLY Spirit. The Bride makes herself ready and stays ready by keeping in the HOLY Spirit and the HOLY Spirit in her: seven torches of fire, seven horns of oil, seven eyes to see through the Spirit of the Lord, Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Might, Knowledge of God and his glory, and reverential Awe: the sevenfold Spirit of God.
As many of you who are baptized INTO Christ, have put on Christ; IN Christ you are sons of God thought faith; led by the Holy Spirit you stay in Christ and Christ in you (Galatians 3:23-29; Romans 8:1-14). Apart from Christ you can do nothing, and a double-minded person receives nothing from God. The Word spoken to you makes you clean, to be able to abide in Christ and Christ in you (John 15:3-4). Through Wisdom, HIS divine Power grants ALL things that pertain to resurrection life and and godliness, through the knowledge of God and his glory of Christ who calls us to his OWN glory and excellence, by which he grants to you his precious and very great Promises, that through these you may escape the corruption in this world system of beliefs under the influence of the spirit of error, the god of this world who blinds minds (2 Cor 4:4), and become PARTAKERS of the divine nature (2 Peter 1:3-4).
On satan’s tree of the knowledge of good and evil you partake of the world’s fallen mindsets, twisted thoughts, distorted feelings, perverted desires, bad choices, and ungodly actions under the influence of the father of lies. But when you come to Christ and abide in Christ, remaining in Christ as a part of the one Body and one Spirit of God our Father, knowing Christ in you, and Christ abiding and remaining in you, you eat of the tree of life bearing only Christ’s Fruit of Righteousness, Light, and Spirit, whose Seeds multiply so you can fruit the imperishable Seed of the Word made flesh (1 Peter 1:23-25) after being born again of God of the Water of Life and of the Spirit of Life: the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of Holiness.
Thank you Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: the one Living God, the Creator of a new heaven and new earth where righteousness dwells. Come out of the world system, lest you TAKE PART in her sins, lest you SHARE in her plagues, lest you partake in her sorcery and murder. Come to Jesus, yoke to Christ, learn Christ, find rest in God our Father, letting Wisdom build the house Power will dwell within. What the world needs now is the Wisdom and Power of God, not the worldly wisdom that is earthly, unspiritual, and devilish (James 3:15) or the power of lust and pride of this world system of beliefs under the influence of the spirit of this world and the fallen human spirit, that is replaced by the Spirit of God when you come to Jesus and are truly born again, so Wisdom can build and Power can begin to dwell in you, to move through you to a hungry, thirsty world who doesn’t know things of the world will never satisfy or fulfill.
Hunger and thirst for righteousness and you will be satisfied in Christ and Christ in you (Matthew 5:6). Only the Holy Spirit dwelling in you can fulfill the be-attitudes of Christ in you: comforted in the kingdom of God inherited in Christ and Christ in you, recipients of grace and glory to give what you have received, pure in heart to see God, making peace in righteousness as born again sons of God, rejoicing and glad when you are reviled, mocked, or persecuted for believing God over the lies, deception, manipulation, control, wiles, sorcery, schemes, and devices of the devil. (Matthew 5:2-12; Ephesians 6:12). To God be all the glory, dominion, power, authority, majesty, blessing, praise, worship, thanks, and honor!
