Attune to the State of Your Soul

Matthew  6:19–20 Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.

1 Corinthians 15:1-2 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you–unless you believed in vain.

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. Notice the two different groups,
    being addressed— and leading into
    two different discussions.

    (Rotherham) Luke 17:20 And, being questioned
    BY THE PHARISEES,
    When cometh the kingdom of God?
    he answered them and said–The kingdom of God
    cometh not with narrow watching;

    Luke 17: 22 But he
    SAID UNTO THE DISCIPLES–
    There will come days–when ye will long to see,
    one of the days of the Son of Man, and shall not see it.
    23 And if they say to you, See, it is there! or, It is here!
    do not go away, or go after them.
    24 For as in a thunderstorm the bright light is
    seen from one end of the sky to the other, so will
    the Son of Man be when his time comes.

  2. After listening to your video I realized a little why I have had so much turmoil in my life for the past 3 to 4 years.God has really humbled me and opened my eyes.I want God to just take over but I guess it’s not that easy.It is my choice and my effort to answer him because he is knocking but I have to let him in.I have to make the effort to know him.Is this correct Rachel?

    • Yes .. most are walking in unrighteousness or counter to God’s ways and don’t realize it is those things that are causing so much fricition in their lives. Learning God’s pure love is a very intimate interaction with Him. He assembles the truth in us using our circumstances, etc to teach us. And God will teach you; seek this understanding from Him.

  3. Amen for the Spirit of God leading the sons of God! TX Rachel for helping revealing these things to our spirits. Then, you’re not a teacher, you’re a helper in revelation, you’re holding the mirror so we can see God in us and what He has for us.

    There is this pure Grace verse which came to me while listening:
    1Jo 3:3 NKJV – And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

    Another thing for some who have followed my few former “sometimes I was told ‘contradictory'” comments and think my sonship came a bit too easy. Not it didn’t come easy, it cost Christ ALL His unfathomable sufferings, Who took my place on the cross, took my place in hell ((separation with God (which is hell) – “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?”)) and in sheol for a time.
    Like Paul I do indentify myself with Him Gal 2:20 NKJV – “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the [life] which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
    And like Paul I consider all of this a DONE DEAL (notice, it’s all past tense) Rom 8:30 NKJV – Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
    Of course we can argue that some things still need to be fulfilled and we’re still waiting. Well in the Spirit there is no past nor future, it’s all the Eternal NOW. So if it says “these He also glorified” in “I AM THAT I AM” in God and we are in God, it’s a done deal.

    My main point, I believe motivated by the Spirit was this:
    Most of my Christian life I have been a HEARER OF THE WORD. I came to a point in my life where I had no other choice but to become a DOER OF THE WORD to find answers to a very very distressful situation in my family. A DOER OF THE WORD, meaning to step out of UNBELIEF into the faith where NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. From waiting endlessly on God into ACTING on God’s promisses. From the spiritual fog of knowing about God into the LIGHT of KNOWING HIM.

    Here’s one of the meditations on the Word of God which really motivated me:

    “It’s not that complicated: He didn’t say pray FOR the sick, He said HEAL the sick. So it’s really bizarre when God commanded you to do something you can’t do. It’s a strange moment of awakening when you realize how incapable you are of doing what He said to do. But the real issue is that we think we can do the rest of the Christian life, when the rest of the Christian life is equally impossible. The whole point is: it’s our connection with the spirit of God that makes it possible”. – Bill Johnson

    From then on I refused to have a theology that was continually making excuses for powerlessness. Jesus never experienced a lack nor did He ever even considered the possiblility of failure.
    I AM NOT JESUS, but my inheritance is to have become A SON, to be able to REIGN IN LIFE, with regained AUTHORITY and DOMINION over ALL the works of the devil and this LESSER REALITY’s circumstances.
    1Cr 2:4 NKJV – And my speech and my preaching [were] not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,

    This regaining of CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS has produced changes, some could say “unbelievable”? I know what it is to be a professionnal discouraged INTROVERT, LOL. So I can tell the difference. I asked God to give me the face of the lion, He’s doing it. I asked Him for the Kingdom’s righteousness joy and peace to become reality… 2 years of abiding JOY UNSPEAKABLE! I’ve prayed for people and they got healed (not all). As I lay my hand on the sick they say they feel a great heat.
    I just don’t try anymore, I love Him. He said to do it so I do it and HE DOES IT. It’s really HIM, no way it’s me. Didn’t He promis us RIVERS OF LIVING WATER flowing out of us.
    I MEAN, REALLY, WHOM THE SON HAS SET FREE IS FREE INDEED!
    The greatest freedom that one can experience is freedom from self.
    When you’re free from self and you’ve got the Triune God living in you, THAT BECOMES YOUR REALITY. That’s the experiential knowledge of God of Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians in chapter 1:16-20 and chapter 3:16-21.

    I had read these verses I don’t know how many times before but when the Spirit gives them LIFE. It’s really a blast the power they carry.

    Sounds like I’m bragging? Over enthousiastic? I’m just a little kid with a great big DAD. I know this could encourage some. You’ve got so many precious revelations from Rachel, I thought of simply sharing a bit of my experience.
    The only thing the Spirit needs to do really is REVEAL what He’s already deposited inside of us.

    It’s not easy to express LOVE this way, but I DO! HALLELUJAH!

    • Hi – thanks for sharing your walk .. growth, power, wisdom, fruit, love … comes from walking in obedience to the truth out of love … not rules or any outside force, but by the leading of the Holy Spiirt in each of our lives. We each have our life to live and God is the only one who can guide us so specifically in the details of our lives. But as you follow His promptings; your life bears fruit of His Spirit because you are working in and by His spirit as you are led by His Spirit.

      Wisdom is justified by her children. Our own lives are a testimony. We are the epistles written by the author of our faith, Christ. A tree is known by it’s fruit – not fake or forced fruit – true fruit coming from the source of life – and when you experience this you know it is far beyond yourself.

      • Yes, thanks, Glory to God!!!
        Though today I was talking with my daughter and she told me
        that she couldn’t really see all the changes I am bragging about – probably the missionnary’s kid syndrome, no man is prophet among his own kin, a man’s foes shall be they of his own household, and often, familiarity breeds contempt.
        – It’s ok honey, I have died already, it is no longer I that lives but Christ that lives in me. Nice try, but you’ll see what you’re looking for, if you’d really look for Jesus, I know you’d seen Him.

        Though the kingdom of God is not in words but in power. So maybe I should just stop talking and let HIM do the power stuff. Just lean, rest, trust, let those rivers of Living Water flow and not quench them with my own words, enticing words of wisdom. I don’t have to try to convince anybody.

        I have experienced a few times lately that it’s when I get to the end of myself that He comes through!

        Basic, baby stuff, right? Yep, that’s how I feel: baby steps, wobbling, stumbling sometimes; but my Great Big Dad never leaves my side and I’M HIS PRIDE AND JOY.

        Love to you all, Claude

  4. I have not found a scripture that says, ‘ In the spirit, there is no Past, or Future’.
    I’ve heard that said before, but I don’t find it in the Word. I think that is erroneous.
    In fact, in my walk I have found it to be quite the opposite. The Spiritual realm is a realm of deposit.
    I do find – ‘Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever’, but that’s not the same meaning.
    Your revelation of Sonship is beautiful. But to bring a sense of balance to your revelation,
    I would cautiously add this- Philipp 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before…
    16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.
    {None of these verses takes away from your salvation}
    {However, bear in mind that Paul’s revelations were gradual, and came to him over a great period of time}
    {These revelations need to be revealed to your spirit, and not gained by mental assent}
    {At that point, is where Rachel’s teaching becomes important} {She is stepping beyond the realm of mental assent, into the Spirit}
    {There is a difference between revelations gained in these two ways} {By rote, or Spirit}
    {my thoughts~ Love, Father Guido Sarducci}

  5. Hi, Guido!
    Thanks, yes I do agree with you. Whatever revelation has to be backed up by the Word.
    I had answered with something quite long but due to a wrong manipulation I lost it.
    Now it’s 3:30 a.m. and I have to get a little sleep.

    Yes, Ph 3:13, 16 are really a blessing to my spirit. Very good and balanced advice

    Blessings!

  6. Thank you so much for this article. It came at the right time when I had a cirsis of faith. I began to submerse myself in the Word and the peace of God was healing (and continues to heal) my heart. I totally agree with you Libs. Well said.
