Forsaking Suffering & Embracing Life

Forsaking Suffering & Embracing Life

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

Galatians 6:7

As you connect and become a part of the divine nature, all that isn’t of it is purged from your life.  As you connect to God’s perfect love and truth, it reshapes you from within thus recreates your reality. This transition is leaving death and entering into life. It’s being born of the spirit. It’s gaining a spirit-mind in place of a flesh-mind. It’s leaving the pit and entering into the kingdom of heaven.

To live from a flesh-mind is to abide in the pit; it’s a tortuous place on many levels. Thus to leave the pit, you have to leave all the tortuous/harmful behaviors behind. You have to cease to be a creator and a “proliferator” of harm, and instead embrace the liberty, healing and redemption of a new pure mind of wisdom and love; the mind of Christ. It’s a state of mind in which you are dependent on God’s wisdom to direct you step by step.

Do you want to be healed? Jesus asked the man of an infirmity of 38 years? John 5:5-6

People surprising are unwilling to leave or address what causes harm in their lives to themselves and others. They are unwilling to leave the pit ultimately because of their lack of understanding of the pure wisdom of God; so shouldn’t all be seeking that wisdom? Proverbs 10:21

Death, the pit, the flesh mind is an arena where love doesn’t exist because it’s a separation from God, who is love. In the absence of love; all that is left are unloving actions causing harm to ourselves and others; and often torturous. 1 John 5:19

We have to seek what true love is; thus to truly know our heavenly Father. We have to learn to leave the pit and that means stop engaging in harmful thoughts, words and actions. Ask God to reveal them in your life. Haggai 1:6-7

Here are some areas to consider:

  1. Our consumption. There is massive cruelty done to animals in regards to the foods we eat; meat, dairy, eggs, the products we use, and the clothes/shoes we buy. This world has done a surprisingly good job of covering up this horrific treatment of animals. Seek this truth then choose to be a vessel of honor .. to all. Let your love, the Father’s love, be known to all; even the least of them. Seek to walk in this love. (A Cry Against Hypocrisy & Cruelty)
  2. Our words. Words can be healing or destructive. People easily harm others by the unkind words they speak and the lies they propagate as truth. James 3:8  Let your words be words of life by letting God establish them. For as you speak so shall your life reflect.
  3. Supporting institutions of oppression; which there are many.
  4. Holding fast to a false image of God which promotes good as evil and evil as good. (ie, eternal torment doctrine)
  5. Feeding the lust image; men in desiring it and women in trying to be it. Both create massive ripple effects of destruction. There is a vast continuum in this area, seek to be off the continuum completely as Jesus spoke of. By seeking Truth, this lust spirit can be starved and replaced with true love. Matthew 5:28-29
  6. Criticizing, judging, holding grudges, unwilling to forgive, resentments, bitterness, anger. Many hold onto these behaviors to “punish” others, to feel justified, and as a form of personal vengeance. These destroy those who hold them.
  7. Staying in abusive relationships, and being abusive to ourselves, which takes on many faces. (Separation vs. Healing in Relationships)

Seek to understand how you are holding onto the pit by the harm you are holding onto in this life. Let all be purged but what is of the purest of wisdom and love. Malachi 3:2-3

Christ is returning within. If people continue to wait for an outside happening, they will remain blind to the call within them to walk in the spirit of grace that enables them to walk in righteousness. That walk transitions us into new creations. It is these who seek and grow in the righteousness of Christ working them who will abide in peace.

Zephaniah 2:3 Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden In the day of the Lord’s anger.

Time for Renewal in You, In the Earth

Time for Renewal in You,

Thus in the Earth

 

How this new year goes comes down to this …

Most likely I’ll be speaking about obedience in the next several posts; as obedience is key to regenerating into a new creation; which has now begun in those of the Day. Matthew 19:28  Thus instruction in this area is pouring forth. Personally, I’m transitioning in ways I never have before; in essence from learning truth to becoming and living the truth. These are incredible days we are living in to say it extremely lightly.

The idea of obedience has negative connotations, and rightly so. The ones we’ve obeyed in this earthly existence lacked pure love, thus obedience has often been harmful and unproductive.

But obedience to a perfect loving Father is TOTALLY ABSOLUTELY different. Obedience to the heavenly Father is a path to the attainment of our deepest desires (purest of love, wisdom, joy, purpose, peace, purity, and blessing, which are all characteristics of our Father). This obedience is a delight because you walk in the purest of love thus receiving the purest of love. Put aside the negativity around obedience and seek to know it in relation to the heavenly Father who loves you. Remember His obedience is different; it is love. Put aside your expectations and listen. Matthew 11:29-30

Obedience Now Possible

Obedience wasn’t possible until the Father came in Christ reconciling Himself to the world. 2 Corinthians 5:19 That plan has been playing out for thousands of years. On the dawn of Christ’s rising in our hearts; that obedience is possible. 2 Peter 1:19, Revelation 22:16 As He returns within us, His righteousness mind becomes our own. Luke 17:21

We’ve had the instruction of the Holy Spirit teaching us about the Father, about His love and ways. 1 John 2:27  For those listening, the truths gained purified us to enable a marriage with Christ within us. John 17:17, John 15:3 We’ve learned from this Spirit, and now as the Light dawns in our hearts those truths are deepening and growing in power to transform us. It’s Christ spirit resurrecting us giving us His mind in place of our own that empowers us to walk in His ways.

As the Light dawns in us we begin to see much clearer. We realized what we saw before of our Father was a stick figure drawing of understanding. Knowing the heavenly Father as He unites to our spirits through Christ produces a MUCH deeper understanding and wisdom than we have ever had before. This is the new wine; and now different it is from the old.  At His return, the oppression of the enemy that kept us bound to unrighteousness is being lifted and replaced with His power to live in righteous love. Matthew 5:20-48

It’s an intense spiritual growth happening as we gain the mind of Christ by our spirits being knit to the One who is our salvation, the Lord Our Righteousness. Jeremiah 33:16

As Christ returns to reign in righteousness, we have a new power to obey, a new power to walk righteously; for this is what it means for Christ to reign in righteousness. His reign is in our souls. In walking in this Light and power, our lives are transformed into something amazing, beyond anything we’ve imagined. Are you experiencing this? Blessed are you for you will be a light to others. Isaiah 10:21-23

Isaiah 9:2 The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined.

With this Light rising in our hearts, the power to leave the pit is given. The prison doors are flung open. The Light is shining in a place, our soul, that once was dark. It leads us, the prisoners, to freedom. Our acts of disobedience imprison us; the acts of obedience set us free.

Christ gave us His spirit not so we didn’t have to walk in God’s will but so that we could. Matthew 5:17-18 When we are righteous the law is fulfilled. Matthew 5:48 He enables us to do what we could never do on our own – be righteousness. Do you believe this? If you don’t your lack of faith will send you into tribulation. If you do, your faith is your victory.

Isaiah 9:3-5 You have multiplied the nation And increased its joy; They rejoice before You According to the joy of harvest, As men rejoice when they divide the spoil. For You have broken the yoke of his burden And the staff of his shoulder, The rod of his oppressor, As in the day of Midian. For every warrior’s sandal from the noisy battle, And garments rolled in blood, Will be used for burning and fuel of fire.

As long as you choose to stay in disobedience or believe you can’t do any different; that mindset will cast a darkness in front of you. Though the Light is near you – you can not see it. The Light will always be at your back until you turn to it. 2 Chronicles 30:9, Jeremiah 2:27 You turn by obeying His words spoken to you about your personal circumstances and life. (It isn’t following religious doctrine; it is living in loving kindness to all)

Examine Your Life; By Examining Your Heart

Take a look with the Father into your heart … there is an area you know you are walking contrary to His will and ways; perhaps a sin or temptation that has plagued you. Now is the time to break free as the prison doors have been opened. The strength of the enemy, the power of lies and deception, is being cast down. Take that area and seek the truth from the Father who loves you and ask for the truth that will set you free. Then whatever way He leads you to obey – do it. It may seem like an unrelated area, but obey. He is building your trust in Him and that His ways truly do lead to life and that His ways truly are good and He is far more loving than you thought.

As you obey, you’ll experience more power as with each step you move out of the pit and into the Light, His presence of peace. He is truth. To be united to Him you must be in His ways; this is what unity means. Obedience leads you straight into His heart; a heart of peace, love, joy, unity, wisdom, blessing that you experience in your spiritual and physical life.

Wisdom (understanding God’s truths in your life) leads to obedience (walking in God’s ways) that leads to power (those ways transforming your life) and that power feels like pure love.

Obedience is easy to do when you understand the wisdom behind it and see the abundant love in it. Then your response is “of course!”

Testing the Hearts of Mankind

Testing the Hearts of Mankind

Tribulation is coming upon the world. For some they will abide in rest because they’ve enter the true sanctuary of the presence of God. Revelation 3:10 Others, still needing purification from the lusts of the world, will encounter further purging, refining, and testing, so God can move in. Proverbs 17:3, Revelation 2:16

Your circumstances test and reveal your heart for out of your heart springs the issues of life. If you circumstances are of the true peace; then you’re entering into the Kingdom of God. If they are of unrest; you are being tested in whom you serve. Let your circumstances show YOU your heart then fully seek and turn to God’s wisdom. Some will try to run and hide from the turmoil, but they cannot because it comes from within. Others will cry out to the true God and He will answer and lead them on the narrow path of truth into His sanctuary of peace.

The purpose of the tribulation is to lead people to deep repentance from the powers of this world (see below) that control them and drive them into death. God is life. To desire God to govern your mind is to embrace eternal life. In His love, He is purging the powers contrary to His perfect love from your life because they destroy you and others, and hurt Him, for He cares for you.

Thus, some of you are going through a significant testing in your circumstances to reveal whether you truly know and trust the true God. During these trying times of your soul; will you cling to the God of truth and choose His truth over the worldly wisdom and the golden calves of mankind’s creation? As the refining/purging fire comes what will it reveal in your spirit? One clinging to truth or one clinging to the pit of lies? 1 Corin 3:13

The Pit Within

During this time people will come face to face with the pit within them. Within the souls of men is a pit. It’s the shadow of death from a severance in the love bond between them and their Father of Light. Some have been coming out of that pit and walking into the light thus into God’s love, others, in spiritual blindness, cling to it to their destruction. Jeremiah 6:19

People try to run from this internal pit of darkness by doing and clinging to all sorts of things to convince themselves it isn’t there (addictions, religion, busyness, contrived self-exaltation). Yet, at times it surfaces and shows its terror.

The pit sucks any aspect of love from a person’s life and leaves them empty and alone. It creates hypocrisy as they try to flee it in any way possible; even by acts they know are destructive. People are trying to escape and run from this internal darkness and yet in their trying they push into the powers of ruin, thus they are trying to smother death with death. When they feed these powers, they are keeping their souls bound to the pit they are trying to escape. Though God longs to be united to them; they have been imprisoned to serving the lust of the world because their love for it. Thus a pit of darkness and emptiness remains in them.

The pit is full of lies, fear, and pain. It’s where the power of ruins have their anchor in people’s souls. They have to be uprooted; so God can abide within.

Psalm 75:10 All the horns of the wicked I will also cut off, But the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.”

10 Powers (horns) of Ruin

  1. Pride
  2. Flesh worship; images created by world
  3. Hypocrisy
  4. Fear
  5. Dishonor/Oppression/Belittling
  6. Personal vengeance/blame
  7. Lust
  8. Self-power, control
  9. Judging/Criticalness/Condemnation
  10. Covetiveness

These torment the soul. Founded on lies, they are the powers that drive us toward death; what Christ came to destroy with His light/truth. The fullness of Christ in us destroys this pit because He is the consummation of love. This fullness is upon us to be received. When His liquid light of truth and pure love implode that place, then death is destroyed in us forever.

Hebrews 2:14-15 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Only God can show us the depth, expanse and power of these forces within us because we each have our own network of lies intertwined and twisted since childhood. Thus, the path of freedom entails a very personal interaction with our Creator. Seek their penetration to be expelled from your life, by the strength of God, down to the last residue clinging to the sides of your soul. He came to cleanse your vessel, let Him. To walk out of this pit is to forsake these powers and all related and connected to them.

If you are facing this pit, cry out to the God of truth. Forsake all artificial remedies of the world. It’s only covering death with death; as the lust of this world is the lust for death. Seek the eternal Light. Come to know the mountain of God; the mountain of truth established in unfailing love. Serve no other “truth” or wisdom but seek to serve the wisdom and love beyond this world yet for this world. Christ will not only deliver you, but will fill you with Himself; the most incredible light of truth and love. John 8:32 Be clear who you serve; and there are only two choices the God of truth or the god of lies and deceit. Pray to know the difference.

I’ve told you these things beforehand, so you may endure with fortitude. God is with you; there is tremendous power in trusting the living God. Cry out to Him for He cares for you; but you must receive Him for it’s the nature of love to be received and given.

Ascend to Mt. Zion

Ascend to Mt. Zion

Psalm 24:3-6 Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord, And righteousness from the God of his salvation.This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face. Selah

Repentance, Obedience, Wisdom, Righteousness = new realm of love and power for those who walk in them.

This is the path and reward of those who seek God in truth and spirit. You can’t seek truth and it not change you; for it’s of the purest love.

  • Repentance = turning from the ways dictated by mankind’s wisdom to God’s ways in ALL things. Ezekiel 18:30
  • Obedience = in love, following the leadings of God. 2 John 1:6
  • Wisdom = acting in the ways of God; resulting in peace, rest, power, love James 3:15-17
  • Righteousness = acting rightly; the result of acting in perfect wisdom Prov 2:20

These concepts tightly fit together reflecting different aspects of the same truth. For those seeking the True God and being prepared by the Holy Spirit, they’ve partly abided in them by the power of the Holy Spirit within them. Eph 4:29-32 Walking in these principles bring an abundant life and more so now as the new age dawns; the Age of Righteousness; when we can walk perfectly unto eternal life by the fullness of Christ.

At Christ’s second coming, He is filling us and making us truly righteousness to abide in eternal life with Him. Christ gave the remission of sins; enabling us to walk the path of repentance. Acts 2:38, 10:43 As His Day dawns, He is giving the fullness of His Spirit enabling us to walk in the fullness of righteousness. Receiving the fullness of His Spirit is the realization of the promise of salvation. 1 Peter 1:10, Rev 12:10, Psalm 25:12-13

Righteousness Reign

In this earth, righteousness will soon begin its reign in power where unrighteousness has prevailed. No one could fully walk in righteousness until the fulfillment of the times when Christ would begin the establishment of His Kingdom upon the earth; the new Jerusalem, Mount Zion. Psalm 25:13

Those of you who have lived and been trained by the Holy Spirit are very blessed. You’ve tasted how the power of the fullness of Christ’s spirit within you transforms your soul from one of death to one of life; from a place of darkness to a place of light. No more will you cast a shadow of darkness, but a brilliant shadow of light as the fullness of Christ comes upon you.

Until the end, no one has lived with the fullness of God except for Jesus as we witnessed because He couldn’t die. But as the new age dawns, the fullness of God will come upon those prepared vessels as it’s the time when Christ is glorified. His glory is what He accomplished; giving His pure Spirit to fill thus redeem mankind and destroy sin/death forever. In the fullness of righteousness; there is no death. The Holy Spirit has been the guarantee of receiving this fullness of Christ. When that fullness comes upon those prepared, the Kingdom of God will begin to be established on this earth and righteousness will begin to reign. 2 Corin 5:5

With righteousness reigning, if you walk in unrighteousness great tribulation will come upon you. The turmoil is to move you to repentance from all your lawless ways to the ways of God. If you seek repentance, which is to learn and to walk in obedience thus the wisdom of God, your life will transform into the most amazing oasis of peace, beauty, power and love. Thus peace for the righteous; tribulation for the unrighteous. Isaiah 57:1-6, 19-21, 65:13-15, Matthew 24:37-44

In receiving this fullness of Christ, you will be as He is; thus you will see Him fully. 1 John 3:2 He is most magnified and glorified when we are like Him; in being less we can’t comprehend His full glory. As Christ became a part of human flesh so we could know Him; He is lifting us up to be like Him so we can truly know Him thus glorify Him. John 17:22-24

Christ is coming as a purifying fire. If you are prepared in truth and receive Him, it will be a glorious transition because you’ve learned all He is, is all you desire. If you aren’t prepared in truth; then you’ll cling to your lawless ways because you think they are good though they are evil. Those deeds will bring great turmoil to your life.

Seek God in truth and spirit; which is beyond all man-made images of who He is (i.e., religion), into a place of pure spirit. Learn about Him, from Him. Do this and you will be greatly blessed because you will be called Christ’s brethren; sons of God. John 6:45, Psalm 25:4-5

Repentance is having great understanding that God is perfect love and that is what you truly desire. For those who now walk this path; they will receive the inheritance of the first born of the sons of God; which is a level of love thus power this world has never known.
