No More Sickness or Sorrow

This video expands upon the previous blog post, it may help to read it as well. Some powerful truths here.

1 Peter 1:22-23 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,

Revelation 21:4 “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

My passion is cultivating a deep relationship with God and helping others to do the same. I LOVE sharing with others insights that God has taught me and hearing what God has taught them... thus my blog, Stirring the Deep. My focus is on a relationship, not a religion. Life is in the relationship. I believe in a balance and unity of body, mind and spirit. I feel it's important to nurture all three for they all affect each other. I try to live in the present, where the Holy Spirit is. And I try to do all with the motive of love. I've come to believe life is a journey and not a destination. It isn't about perfection, is it about growth.

  1. Great video and lesson. may God bless and continue with you in all things.

  2. Matthew 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and Few There BE, That Find It. I think you will find two opposing paradigms at play here.
    The mustard seed paradigm will more than likely be one that fills the world around YOU, at this time rather that the world at Large. Jesus said, the kingdom of heaven is like a man who cast seed into ‘His Own Garden” and it becometh a great tree, the birds of the air come and lodge in it. The tribulations that last until the end, will affect us all, in lesser degrees for the righteous. God’s intent for this is to bring the unrighteous into the kingdom.
    Matthew 5:45 “that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”
    Jesus said His return would come as a thief in the night, when they say peace and
    safety, then sudden destruction cometh upon them. Genesis 8:22 “While the earth remains, Seedtime and Harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, And Day and Night Shall not cease.” Day and Night is also spiritual. There must be a Harvest of Souls for the kingdom, where we go into the field and Labor. (NKJV) Matthew 20:1 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard.”

    • Some wonderful verses … yes, life will grow around the righteous… from within out and affecting the space and lives around them. This is how the kingdom of God will spread and be established. But as you mentioned also during this time judgment will come upon those not walking in God’s truth. As truth reigns, if we are walking counter to it .. then we bring our own downfall upon ourselves. It’s like going against the king of the land and his governance. If wedon’t walk by his rules then there are consequences. This is how sin and wickedness will be purged. They ways of wickedness will cease to work and prevail as the root of their power is destroyed. God is be the protection for his people, as truth protects. Truth/love is what is reigning, thus if weare walking in it, we are in line with the incoming kingdom and will grow. Amazing transition we are in.

  3. Yes, however to be even more accurate in the overall picture of the laws that God has created, even many people who are not following Christ do many good things, and are accomplished in the same sowing of righteousness, even though they may be ignorant of its’ functioning. God is taking care of the unrighteous, as well as the righteous, or we would all have already perished. The work of the Cross gave God legal rights here that pervade every level of sowing and reaping even among the unrighteous (coined phrase). I think Christ’s reigning will be more evidenced, as believers began to comprehend and
    exercise their authority, using the name of Jesus, against the elements, and through prayer. We are co-laborers with him on a greater scale than just our recreated spirit being permeated by, and emanating grace, and love. We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, and powers
    and the rulers of darkness of this world. This is not referring to human leadership, though it surely overlaps that area. This is a spiritual warfare of intent
    and not one of “self righteousness”, or perfectionism, unless by perfectionism we mean, oneness with Jesus. Then yes we have the ability to become
    perfect, but not for our own enjoyment, but in spiritual authority by intent. Our purpose is to know our Rights (not on a human level, but in the heavenly sphere.) Our true function is against the unseen, not the seen. Hence we walk by faith, which is not based on perfectionism. This is exemplified by a comparison with Buddism, which teaches enlightenment of perfection. That is not our sphere, nor is it a way of faith. Faith is the only element that demarcates from religious activity based on a system of rules, or conduct unto perfection.

    • Hi … Thanks for sharing your thoughts …

      You statement “We are co-laborers with him on a greater scale than just our recreated spirit being permeated by, and emanating grace, and love” we are co-creators .. and it is our faith established on truth that creates, very powerful, I agree.

      you said, we have the ability to become perfect, but not for our enjoyment … we certainly enjoy the blessing of all God creates us to be it is part of His gift to us … But indeed it expands beyond ourselves for we are all connected and affect one another.

      The point of Christ giving us His spirit is to make us righteous … as we become united to Him in our spirit, we grow in righteousness/love and thus reflect His glory.

      • Good points. “Your faith established on Truth that creates”. I think I understand your point, or viewpoint, but have you ever considered if your Will is involved in the co creating? For instance, Jesus said, henceforth
        have you Demanded Nothing In My Name. Speak and your Servant will be Healed. These statements seem to imply an active Faith, at the will of the believer. This seems to be different from reflected glory, of which I am not discounting, just pointing out a difference between the two realms of faith.

      • Hi … your will is a huge part of creating .. it is what creates, that is why it has to be governed by God. Governed by the true faith built on the mountain of truth and love.

      • Thanks, I didn’t know you believed that particularly. I thought you believed in the resistence of self will albeit subjected to God. I learned something there, thanks. Hope I stated you correctly.

      • Hi, I hope I’m being clear 🙂 … we have to submit our will to God’s … for Him to govern us. It’s like we are unplugging from a bad energy source and plugging into a good one; like getting a new operating system. He renews your mind with His truth and in that you think differently, thus your will becomes His will. Once you desire for Him to take over and drive, He is faithful to start “re-wiring” your mind to be in line with truth and love.

      • Yes, that is a clearer. It seems that it would be more of a goal though, when you say ‘our will becomes his will’. That’s a wonderful goal, but is that realistic? In other words, if you were to claim, ‘my will is his will’ it seems like that would be presumptuous, from his point of view. You might say, I pray that my will is His will. However I understand that it is possible, but I think he is able to govern us regardless. Because he governs us by his grace as well. I don’t think it’s that cut and dried. The only thing that’s cut, and dried is tobacco. Let me know if you think I’m off base.
        We do know when we are in line with His word though. Or when we act in sequence with His word.

      • It is a realistic goal as this age ends and the new begins and Christ returns to set up His kingdom. His spirit filling us, the temple, will cause/empower/enable us to walk in His will as He walked in His Father’s will on earth. But it is a transition and process.
