Jesus told us the Words that he brought the earth from God our Father, are life and Spirit, and these Words make us clean (John 15:3). The Words from God our Father through the Son are powerful, holy-Spirit-filled, with the light of the fire of God’s glory of Christ, to not only clean, clear, wash, purify, refine, and make whiter than snow, but change, transform, and transfigure us so we look like and reflect the image and likeness of Christ, the exact image and likeness of God.
Do NOT conform to the world, but TRANSFORM by the renewing Mind of Christ. Conform to Christ by the HOLY Spirit, justified, sanctified, glorified by FAITH, in the Spirit.
Do not conform to the world’s babylonian system of beliefs that go against the Word of God, the Word made flesh in Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords, Who leads us into all truth by the Holy Spirit within.
The three things God tells us in Romans 1 not to do, is being done by the current world system:
- suppress the truth
- exchange the glory for images
- exchange the truth for lies
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven AGAINST all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness SUPPRESS THE TRUTH…although they knew God they do not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but are futile in their THINKING and their senseless minds are darkened. CLAIMING to be wise, they are fools, and exchange the GLORY of the IMMORTAL GOD for images…They EXCHANGE the Truth about God for lies and worship the creation rather than the Creator who is blessed forever! Amen…They receive in their own persons the due penalty for the ERROR. And since they do not see fit to acknowledge God, God gives them up to a base mind and improper conduct…Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only DO THEM but APPROVE of those who practice them” Romans 1:18-32
God did NOT destine you to wrath, but to abide in Christ and Christ in you. COME OUT of the world’s earthly, unspiritual, devilish wisdom that is leading people to sin, death, and doing the works of the devil. COME TO Christ Jesus, yoke, learn, find rest for your mind and heart and will in the sanctified thoughts of God, sanctified feelings, imagination, motivation, intention, desires of God, and the sanctified will of God: sanctified choices that lead to freedom, not further bondage of enslaved souls.
God himself bore our sins in his body on the tree that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds we are healed and made whole. For you were straying LIKE sheep, but have now RETURNED to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls (1 Peter 2:24).
“Humble yourselves under the mighty Hand of God, that in due time he may exalt you. Cast ALL your anxieties upon him, for he cares about YOU. Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around LIKE a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour. RESIST him, firm in your FAITH, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood through the world. AND after you have suffered A LITTLE WHILE, the God of all grace, who has CALLED YOU to his eternal glory IN CHRIST, will himself restore, establish, settle, and strengthen you. To HIM be the DOMINION for ever and ever. Amen” 1 Peter 5:6-11
WHEN the goodness and loving-kindness of God our Savior appears to you, he saves, redeems, heals, makes whole, delivers from the dominion of darkness and transfers into the kingdom of the beloved Son, delivers you from lies into the TRUTH of the Word of God, not because of your deeds, both good and evil, but because of Jesus’ RIGHTEOUSNESS, in virtue of God’s own mercy and compassion, by the washing of the Word, the regeneration, in being born again OF God, OF the Water of Life, OF the Spirit of Life; so you are no longer UNDER the law of sin and death, but renewed, born anew from Above every morning IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, a continuous River he pours out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that we can be JUSTIFIED by his grace, SANCTIFIED by FAITH in the Spirit, and GLORIFICATION for the mature who go through the tests of faith so the impurities are seen and removed, leaving pure gold refined by fire, wearing the white garment of Salvation, robe of Righteousness, union with Christ, eyes to see; co-heirs WITH Jesus (Titus 3:4-7).
“The Spirit helps us in our weaknesses; for we don’t know how to pray as we ought BUT THE SPIRIT himself intercedes for us beyond words…the SPIRIT intercedes for his saints according to the Will of God. We know that IN EVERYTHING God works for good WITH THOSE WHO LOVE HIM and are called to HIS PURPOSE…to be conformed to the image of HIS SON, in order that Jesus be the FIRST BORN among many. Those he predestined, he also calls, justifies, and glorifies. If God is for us, who can be against us?…God gives us ALL THINGS with Christ…It is God who justifies; who can condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was RAISED from the dead, who is at the Right Hand of God, who indeeds INTERCEDES for us” Romans 8:26-34
Completely covered by Holy Spirit and the fiery glory light of Christ is true security, safety, refuge, clothed with Christ, clothed with the Power of God from on High, able to withstand this time of trouble, not only survive but thrive, not only thrive but flourish, as a new garden of God where righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit spring up. Glorified Christ is our Living Faith, Living Hope, Living Love, Living Light of resurrection Life, Living Holy Spirit, Living God and Father who supplies ALL our needs out of the riches of the glory of Christ, now and is to come! I give ALL the glory to God our Father and his Lamb!
