Pulled out of the Pit
QUESTION: Are you following Christ out of the pit and into the Kingdom? OR are you clinging (unknowingly or knowingly) to the sides of the pit by remaining in sin and unbelief?
Isaiah 1:18-20 Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord, Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land; But if you refuse and rebel, You shall be devoured by the sword”; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken
25-26 I will turn My hand against you, And thoroughly purge away your dross, And take away all your alloy. I will restore your judges as at the first, And your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city.
The Kingdom of Righteousness is now being established in the earth. This is how it’s occurring…
The Kingdom starts as a mustard seed and grows. Matthew 13:31-33 It grows from within out. Luke 17:21 Because it’s NOW being established, we NOW have the power and grace of Christ moving IN US pulling us out of the pit and purging us from all corruption; IF we embrace Him, the truth, Word of God. Rev 19:13, 1 Peter 1:13, Isaiah 26:12
Isaiah 40:5 The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
Christ’s spirit IN us transitioning us into the sons/daughters of God is His glory being revealed because this transformation was the purpose of Him entering the flesh and into death. Thus, as Christ’s glory is manifested, those who are truly of God are revealed for His presence in them will become undeniable. John 6:45, Romans 8:18-19
As Christ’s kingdom is established, people are either being pulled out of the pit or clinging to it by remaining in sin. If we cling to it, all will perish for this world of wickedness is passing away. 1 Corin 3:13-15 We will be “burned” by the righteousness of Christ’s spirit as He usurps the wickedness and establishes righteousness. 2 Thess 1:7-8 The spirit of God is the fire to consume the earth. “For our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:29
Known by Their Fruit
Being pulled out of the pit and into the Kingdom means we are growing in unity with the spirit of wisdom, Christ’s Spirit, speaking to us from within on how to live in righteousness and pure honoring love. As we follow His lead by His power in us, the corruption/sin (anger, bitterness, hypocritical love, judging spirit, lust of eyes/flesh, idols, false images, unbelief, etc.) is purged from our lives. If we aren’t following; it’s not being purged. According to our hearts being changed or not, each one of us is witnessing either increasing good fruit or bad fruit in our lives. Luke 6:44, Proverbs 11:18-19
Proverbs 11:3-5 The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them. Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, But righteousness delivers from death. The righteousness of the blameless will direct his way aright, But the wicked will fall by his own wickedness.
The path we’ve really chosen, despite our professions and religions, is becoming more apparent as our fruit reveals our choice. Until now, the wheat and tares looked similar as the glory of Christ hadn’t been manifested in people’s souls. But as He starts to rise in our hearts, those sowing unity with His spirit will experience increasing peace, love, joy, rest, wisdom, understanding, prosperity, protection, and healing. Those not following His Spirit will experience increasing angst from abiding in the pit of darkness; unrest, suffering, pain, affliction, and hardship. These difficulties serve to turn souls from the paths of death to the paths of life to become renewed unto eternal life. Matthew 13:28-30
This separation caused by the Spirit of Christ will cause a great division in this earth. This division causes the kingdom of darkness to fall; for a kingdom divided can’t stand. As evil’s reign has made ALL a slave to sin; righteousness’ reign will make ALL a slave to righteous love. Isaiah 26:9 , 1 Corinthians 15:22 Christ will reign, until He puts an end to all powers contrary to Him. 1 Corin 15:22-26 It’s a reign within our hearts because that is where the fruit of this earth is produced. Everything starts from within, thus this is were restoration begins and ends.
This earth and all that it is, is being transformed by the souls transitioning into sons/daughters of light. This earth is what it is because of the souls that live in it. Change the souls; change the earth. Change the souls by changing the power of the air from Satan to Christ. Ephesians 2:2
What fruit your heart is producing signifies which way you are headed. If it is in the wrong direction; now is the time to seek the will of God and start following His spirit of wisdom leading you from within in the paths of peace and the purest of love.
