Nothing of God is hidden in Christ (Colossians 1:19, 25b-27, 2:9; Ephesians 1:23),
our Strong Tower
the precious and very great Promises of God
our inheritance as co-heirs with Christ
is hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3).
“ If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hid with Christ in God” Colossians 3:1-3
“This God—his way is perfect;
the promise of the Lord proves true;
he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him” Psalm 18:30
“The law of the Lord is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure,
making wise the simple;
the precepts of the Lord are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is pure,
enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the Lord is clean,
enduring for ever;
the ordinances of the Lord are true,
and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold,
even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey
and drippings of the honeycomb.
Moreover by them is thy servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward” Psalm 19:7-11
“Some boast of chariots, and some of horses;
but we boast of the name of the Lord our God.
They will collapse and fall;
but we shall rise and stand upright” Psalm 20:7-8
Arise, shine, for your light has come and the glory of the Lord will rise upon you. For those who fear the Lord, the Son of Righteousness will rise with healing wings and you will go forth leaping with joy, led forth in peace, full of Jesus’ Joy for the finished work of the Cross finished and done in you on earth as it is in heaven. “Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
Jesus IS the Word of God, giving those who continue in the Word, the Truth, and the Truth makes you free. IF the Son sets you free, you are free indeed! For freedom, Christ has set you free, STAND FAST therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of bondage. Come to Jesus, yoke, learn, find rest, receive, know, see, hear and do what the Spirit says to the churches! “Do you not know that you are God’s temple when Holy Spirit dwells in your body?” Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit WITHIN, that you have from God?” “Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you? — unless you fail to meet the tests of faith.” “Count it all joy when meeting with various trials, for the full effect is complete and perfect, lacking nothing.”
Do not be deceived. EVERY good endowment and EVERY perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights without variation or shadow of change. Of his own Will, by the Word of Truth he brings you forth as a kind of first fruits of the First Fruit, the First Born from the dead in the New Covenant: Jesus! (James 1:16-18). Ask the Father of glory for a Spirit of Wisdom, Power, Love and a Sound Mind; ask for revelation of the Knowledge of God and his glory. Ask for the eyes of your heart to be enlightened with Understanding to know your call and inheritance and the immeasurable Power of his Might through the Counselor Comforter Counsel Helper Teacher Reminder Advocate Spirit of TRUTH whom Jesus prays the Father for you to receive, that the world cannot receive for they neither SEE him or KNOW him, but Holy Spirit will live with AND in you AND form Christ in you.
So live in Christ, rooted and grounded and built up in Christ to full maturity in the Head of all rule and authority, abounding in thanksgiving; not falling prey to the “lying lions” roaming this world looking for those to devour, steal, kill, and destroy (Colossians 2:6-15; John 10:10). Jesus calls you to awaken and come forth “You have fallen asleep, but I come to awake you out of sleep” ~Jesus in John 11:11
“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead and Christ will give you light” Ephesians 5:14
“Besides this you know what hour it is, how it is full time now for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed; the night is far gone, the day is at hand. Let us then cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light; let us conduct ourselves becomingly as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 13:11-14a); his resurrection LIFE!
