It is the worst of times, it is the best of times. Yes; both, and: in the world system of beliefs it is the worst of times, another time of trouble, but in Christ and Christ in you, it is the best of times. Come OUT of the world system of beliefs, twisted thoughts, distorted feelings, controlled by fear, perverted desires, abominable choices, rebellious actions, lawless under the activity of satan, disobedient to the Word, Will, and Spirit of God. Come to Jesus and yoke to the Holy One, the Living Anointed One alive FOREVER with the keys.
For this world is destined to be destroyed by fire (2 Peter 3:5-7), as in the days of Noah it was destroyed by water — not the EARTH destroyed, but the world system of ungodly beliefs that led the people astray –come out of her! lest you take part in her sins; lest you share in her plagues, her murder of innocents, her corrupt world rulers of present darkness who want to enslave people and enrich themselves, using sorcery, pharmakeia, deceiving all the nations (Revelation ch. 18).
But God! Jesus ALREADY conquered, overcame, triumphed over, in Glorious Victory, so we can come to Jesus and YOKE to the Holy, Righteous One, so we can be in the fire and not touched, not even come out smelling like fire, but thanking God! who IN CHRIST always leads us in TRIUMPH, smelling like the fragrance of the knowledge of Christ, the aroma of CHRIST to God, among those who are being saved AND among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life…not as “peddlers” of God’s Word, but sincere, co-missioned by God, in the sight of God IN CHRIST (2 Corinthians 2:14-17).
In the old covenant, in the old testament, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were literally, physically put in a fiery furnace for not bowing down and submitting to unlawful mandates, but a pre-Jesus Christophany (appearing) kept them from burning up in the fire, or even smelling like smoke when they came out, but those who threw them in the fire did burn up, were destroyed by the fire made seven times hotter by the ruler who wanted to be worshiped and be god instead of God, just as the ungodly governments under communism want to make the government “god” and want to destroy those who will only obey, bow down, and submit to God, because they can’t be fooled into corrupt, compromised truth, falsehood, deception, schemes, wiles, devices, dark agendas, plots and plans to enrich themselves and enslave you.
But IN Christ and Christ in you in the New Covenant Holy Spiritual Fire in you, the fire coming won’t touch you that is coming to destroy the destroyers, those who refuse to come to Jesus, deny, mock, calling good “evil” and calling evil “good”, calling the righteousness of God “wrong” and the satanic, demonic, luciferian agenda “right”, calling the woke darkness “light” and calling the true light “evil” in their upside down, backward world system that puts the hidden capstone of lucifer on the top of their triangle, false unholy trinity, and refuse to recognize the One True God, the Creator of all life, wanting to be exalted above God, just like lucifer.
“The written code KILLS, but the SPIRIT gives life” (2 Corinthians 3:6). The dispensation of the SPIRIT is attended with greater splendor than their dispensation of sin, death, shame, guilt, condemnation, and works of the devil of the old. The dispensation of RIGHTEOUSNESS in Christ and Christ in you FAR EXCEEDS the former glory; splendor that far surpasses, and is PERMANENT, eternal, imperishable SEED of the WORDS of Jesus planted and grown and matured in God’s born again children, NOT LIKE Moses who had to put a VEIL over his face to HIDE the fading, and ending of the old covenant. ONLY through Christ is the veil taken away (2 Corinthians 3:7-16).
“NOW the Lord is the SPIRIT, and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is FREEDOM. And with UNVEILED face we behold the glory of the Lord and are being CHANGED into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the SPIRIT. Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do NOT lose heart. We RENOUNCE disgraceful, underhanded ways; we REFUSE to practice cunning or tamper with God’s Words through Jesus, but by OPEN statement of the TRUTH [Jesus IS the Truth of God] we appeal to your conscience in the sight of God. The gospel is ONLY veiled to those who are PERISHING. In their case the god of this world has BLINDED the minds of unbelievers, to keep them from SEEING THE LIGHT of the gospel of the glory OF CHRIST, who IS the likeness of God” 2 Corinthians 3:17-4:4
“Light shines in our HEARTS to give the LIGHT of the knowledge of the GLORY of God found in the PRESENCE of Christ. In Christ we HAVE this treasure in EARTHEN VESSELS, to show that the transcendent Power belongs to God…always CARRYING in our body the death of Jesus so that the LIFE OF JESUS may be MANIFESTED in our bodies” 2 Cor 4:6-10
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were types, copies, shadows, patterns, of the OLD that passes away when the SPIRITUAL REALITY comes to pass in you, when you come alive together with Christ in God, into his righteousness, and receive the abounding grace upon grace out of the FULLNESS of Christ, and the free gift of righteousness THROUGH Jesus, to reign in LIFE (Romans 5:17), not wait to die, but PASS from death to life through the finished work of the Cross of Christ.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who HEARS My Words and BELIEVES Him who sent Me, has eternal life; he does NOT come into judgment, but HAS PASSED from death to life” ~Jesus in John 5:24
“The death Jesus died he died to sin ONCE FOR ALL, but the LIFE he lives he LIVES to God. So you must ALSO consider yourselves DEAD to sin and ALIVE to God IN CHRIST” Romans 6:10-11
“The spirit of antichrist, of which you heard is coming and NOW IS in the world ALREADY…you OF GOD [born again] HAVE OVERCOME them; for he who is IN YOU is GREATER than he who is in this world” 1 John 4:3b-4
Don’t worship any created thing or person or spirit, worship the Creator in Spirit and in Truth! Don’t exchange the Truth for lies of the world system; don’t exchange the GLORY for images; don’t exchange what God created for what man is creating (transhumanism and perverted desires of a “base mind and improper conduct”); don’t practice or approve of their devices, wiles, schemes, or agenda, “for the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against ALL ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness” suppress the Truth. “For 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).
The Spiritual Reality in Christ and Christ in you is FAR GREATER than their virtual reality.
“Abide in Me, and I in you” (Jesus in John 15:4); our Refuge, Fortress, Strong Tower, Protection, Provision, Preservation, Presence, Power, Safety, Security, in the Righteousness of God our Father of Glory, in the Peace of the Bridegroom King of Glory, the Son of Righteousness, and the JOY in the HOLY Spirit! in the kingdom of God and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, so all of Christ can be added in your born again of God of Water of Life of Spirit new nature, new name, new identity, new creature of the new creation of the new covenant between Father and Son; greater than ANYTHING in this world.
Heaven and nature sing; now let us sing, sing, sing! joyful, joyful, joyful! Heaven is continuously singing, “Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord God Almighty!” nature repeats its sounding joy! righteousness and holiness is the root of our Joy! righteousness through the Cross of Jesus is JOY to a dark, hurting, broken world, looking for love, belonging, and acceptance in ALL the wrong places. Come out of her and come to Christ Jesus, the Way to God the Father, the TRUTH that exposes imposters, lies and falsehood, the resurrection LIFE and Spirit of God found in the pure Blood, pure Water, and righteous, holy, perfect Spirit of Christ!
This present dark world system is destined for destruction by fire, but in Christ and Christ in you, the spiritual holy fire of the Spirit of God keeps you born again anew from Above in holiness, righteousness, and godliness, without spot or blemish, found in Christ (2 Peter 3:1-14). “For whatever is born OF GOD overcomes the world, and this is the VICTORY that overcomes the world, our FAITH” (1 John 5:4).
“Now to him who is ABLE to keep you from falling and to present you without blemish before the presence of his glory with rejoicing, to the ONLY God, our Savior THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before ALL time AND now AND forever. Amen” Jude 24-25
sing, sing, sing! joyful, joyful we adore You! Jesus the King of kings and Lord of lords!
