I woke up with the singing of, “Restore unto me the Joy of thy salvation and uphold me with thy free Spirit.”
the JOY of our salvation!
our First Love!
the Creator of heaven and earth and all life!
the Living Holy One of God,
our betrothed Beloved!
our Savior, King of kings and Lord of lords, Messiah, Christ, Anointed One, Son of God!
Who NEVER changes and ALWAYS loves us with a steadfast never-ending Love beyond love!
“Take delight in the Lord and he gives you the desires of your heart”
to be with him forever! to abide in Christ and Christ in you!
Take the New Name! “His Delight in you” and “Married!” (Isaiah 62:4)
“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth. And the FORMER THINGS shall not be remembered or come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create” (65:17-18)
For ALL the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily in Christ Jesus, and we come to fullness of Life IN HIM (Colossians 2:9-10).
“Therefore, let us go on and get past the elementary stage in the teaching and doctrine of Christ the Messiah, advancing steadily toward the completeness and perfection that belong to spiritual maturity” Hebrews 6:1 AMPC
Jesus endured the Cross for the JOY of our salvation; let us rejoice, again rejoice as true yokefellows with Christ, and be glad!
Repentance is spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical. Turn from the things of this world system of beliefs, and turn from darkness to Light and turn from the power of satan to the Power of God; delivered from the dominion of darkness AND transferred into the Kingdom of the Beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:13). Let the REDEEMED say so! Thank you God our Father and Your Lamb!!! Thank you for the Holy Spirit!!! Thank you for the righteousness and peace and joy that is only found in the Holy Spirit in the midst of a dying world system who is fighting mad and willing to lie to achieve a demonic end.
The full effect of going through trials of faith, tests of faith, is solid gold faith that cannot be shaken; the fire of God consumes all that is not of Christ, leaving shiny pure gold refined by fire. The FULL effect: complete in Christ and Christ in you, holy, perfect: lacking NOTHING (James 1:2-3; Hebrews 12:12-29)
