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!”

Author: Rachel

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. Rachel,..hi im sure you havent missed the great debates your videos on You tube have brought about, with myself Derek and Roo etc

    i thought you might have joined in,..maybe when you upload them here, you can,..and ask both Derek and Roo to join in

    there could seem to be some confusion on everyones part,..and surely as confessed believers we should help resolve the problem by Scripture,..theres almost and air of anti christ spirit creeping in and that we must resist and shed light on regardless of angst or hurt,..i know some people get easily hurt at searching deeper Scriptures and some even said you,..but surely hurt is part of the narrow path,..if any one thinks they can pass the fire of Truth without hurt/pain to the inner man

    • thoughtware,
      the difference of opinion is irrelevant
      the difference between Rachel and me, is this!

      no matter what i think or post and give my thoughts IF it dosent match Scripture,..THEN theres a very good chance, im wrong.

      if what i say and Scripture is posted that is contradictory to what ive said, i will accept theres a good chance im wrong and go and re study,..and come back and admit it.

      and i will totally accept the Prophecies Written in Scripture MUST happen,..in the order they are Written,..and i CANNOT change them to suit myself.

  2. I think the reason Rachel doesn’t respond to you is that it is pointless.

    You think you are right. Rachel believes she is right because she trusts in what God has taught her – so she will always trust God over you. Yet, you keep trying and trying, thinking that she should trust you over God. That is beyond silly.

    You are waiting for a “man” to come floating down from the sky. That is fine – and what you believe will happen in the future based on your own expectations.

    The difference between you and Rachel is that she always writes what she actually WITNESSES NOW in her life and in her quiet times with God – where as you write about what you EXPECT to witness.

    Why not stop arguing or trying to convince Rachel to trust you over God. This in itself reveals you are not yet trusting God.

    • surely its The Written Word that must be what we all stand by,..and if we say something always be ready to give an answer through Scripture to defend what we say.

    • thoughtware
      i dont think your mocking me,by posting,

      You are waiting for a “man” to come floating down from the sky

      i dont think ive ever have said that,…but Scripture would support The Return of The King, the romans killed 2000 years ago…The disciples did…and angels in Acts 1 stated clearly to them as they stood and watch That King, float up that day,..are you saying that piece of Scripture is a lie of the scribes?…

      Paul tells of his hope of The King returning

      The Messiah while on earth told his disciples He would return from Heaven with all his Saints and a HOST of Angels.

      The ‘rapture’ foolish christians cling to thinking they will miss tribulation, is actually at The 7th Trumpet when all of His,the long time dead and those left alive get caught up in the air to meet Him (im sure you know the Books,Chps and verses

      you can mock me all you like,..but going against what is Written to suck up to humans,to make me look bad and you and them to look good in the eyes of men, is very foolish

  3. Hi church, EW here. My purpose in speaking is not to open another can of stinking worms, but to receive & shed light on the only narrow path to eternal salvation with the Lord. The only way I can see it, is in knowing God is truth, which says Jesus is God’s way! I Corinthians 4 “this is how one should regard us, as SERVANTS of CHRIST and STEWARDS of the MYSTERIES of GOD. Moreover it is REQUIRED of STEWARDS that THEY be found TRUSTWORTHY.” —when I keep an open mind to hearing what God wants to teach, I find that each time I study a perticular passage, I may receive a teaching on different subjects. It stands to reason that this is so with all following believers. Therefore, I would not say anyone was totally wrong in their perception. —I feel that Rachel gets locked in on one subject so intently that it is near to the only thing she can speak of at the time. I personally see nothing wrong with this; maybe it is the way it should be. I know the legalistic bonds were nailed to the cross. Therefore, I do not want to be disobedient like denominational religion. However, Isaiah said the sabbath will be held for ever and ever in the new heaven & new earth and I do not want to be disobedient like denominational religion. Therefore, ALL is a matter of each individual’s faith and conscience(God’s two wittnesses). I no longer worry about being wrong, because I too follow in some of the same perceptions as Rachel. To which, Jesus said, for those of us that do not yet know the depths of satan, HE HOLDS NO OTHER BURDEN FOR US. This is not a get-out-of-jail-card-forever, for, HE also said, continue to grow in grace and knowledge. ALL grace & knowledge comes from God and that only through the study of HIS word with guidance of HIS Spirit!

  4. ARE WE CHURCH?
    “I appeal to you, brethren, by the name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, that all of you agree and that there be no dissensions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. —For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called(both Jews and Greeks) Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men and the weakness of God is stronger than men. —Consider your call, brethren; not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth; but God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong, God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. He is the source of your life in CHRIST JESUS, whom God made our wisdom, our righteousness and sanctification and redemption; therefore, as it is written, “Let him who boasts, boast of the LORD. “

    • Anonymous,

      you see that is a deciding factor here on these boards,..

      i boast The Lord,..alive and well and in Heaven with His Father.

      you?

      theres been what i could call a sorta shift towards a muslim the messiah was just a prophet type doctrine,..were the lord is sort of mentioned and side tracked,and by passed…but His Anointed Glory not fully given Him.

      or is that just me?

  5. EW here. The reason for so much confusion of scripture is that the majority of people read & receive it as a visual, personal, material happening. Many things the Lord laid out, that we would know this as true, that ALL may know Him to be true! However, ALL scripture was delievered to us that through the Holy councilor we may know the very mind and nature of the ALMIGHTY! Such as the two witnesses of God are already on the earth. Also the mark of the beast has already been placed on all, (above age of accountability), that do not have the seal of God! These things are teaching of the Spirit by the Spirit. The Spirit does the writing & the reading of these things. There is only one way we can know of these things and through this perticular way is the only way we can know which we are. —I cannot say I know for sure, the purpose of Rachel’s delivery points, but I do know that if anyone can come to understanding of her delivery points, they will be at Jesus’ door. —This maybe hard to understand, because it is what the Holy councilor has taught this man through scripture study.

  6. EW,

    surely if we are not sure we are as im sure you know, it says in Scripture, to test the spirit.

    surely you know that if asked a question about our words of our belief; and thats us all,..is to have an answer.

    and the best test is for us all to put it to the test of scripture to see if it matches and stand the test,…that…shouldnt offend anyone of us believers,..and no excuse should be made by anyone ,…if you go to extremes to put your thoughts out as teaching,..then you should defend it Scripturally

    for instance rachel has being saying ‘christ’ is returning now in our hearts,its the kingdom,the marriage,..even before the most of the book of revelation is played out,..that we wont miss,.she banging and tieing them up together where Scripture has them separate and in order,..whether we like it or not.

    now concerning her ‘spirit of christ ‘ return now is not exactly what The Lord said…

    what The Lord Himself said

    Matthew 24:26-28

    26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

    27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    concerning, Rachel saying the marriage and that all taking place now,..and you will know the marriage is near the end of Revelation,and hasnt been fufilled

    heres what the Lord Himself said,.(WHEN He appeared to the 12 in His Glorious Risen Body, before ancension,and note! Rachel isnt sure about this)

    this is what He said!
    Luke 24:44
    And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

    now any body studying to our level,..can see that everything Written has NOT been fulfilled yet.

    so as a blogger on here for quite a time,..i think its reasonable enough to question and test everyone and anyone that saying things that dosent match whats Written.

    or is that only me?

  7. EW here. Yes, Brian, I know what you are saying. I also know that none of us are perfect to the letter in scripture, simply because, God is so vast. As Paul said,(because we no longer have apostels to direct our studies to understanding) we have to work out our own salvation. Rachel, appears, to omit or disreguard portions of scripture at times. If she were sent by the Lord as a teacher, like one of the old ones, I could not listen to her. Because, “some say thy are apostels and they are not” and “some say they are Jews and they are not”. This is litteral teaching but also, very deep Spiritual teaching that very, very few understand. —When one says, I believe or I don’t believe, in concern of the words of God, we are opening the door to critisem. Because, though we may be unaware, we are reverting back to denominational religion(I am not being critical of Rachel because, I catch my self doing the same thing). —On the other hand,(I hope you can absorb this in the ways of the Lord) to be strict to the letter of the word is to be a pharisee/saddusee/denominational religion, “BEHOLD, an Israelite indeed(IN DEED), in (is in) whom is no guile!” Denominational religion teaches this statment as a litteral fact, but, IT IS one of the deepest Spiritual truths in scripture. It explains the 144,000/12,000 from each litteral tribe. Wheather or not Rachel understands, she is explaining this statement of Jesus in her most resent posts. Therefore, as long as she stays(for the most part) with what I know is Spirit lead, I am enjoying it. —“my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and power that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. Yet among the mature(in Spirit) we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age(denominational religion), who are doomed to pass away. But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom(Holy Spirit) of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glorification. None of the rulers of this age understood this; for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory(litterally the Holy Spirit speaking from a man’s body). But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love HIM(I feel that Rachel understands this “love HIM” more than most of us), God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.

  8. EW,..i agree with most of what you say too and if not i understand the rest from a human man point of view.

    a few things i’ll be clear on,..im searching, learning and i’ll help anyone …especially sinners,..bit like ive no need to reach out to the elect or the bride,or even the remnant,..i believe all those are decided long long ago,..and are safely in the Hands of My Lord and Saviour,..even if they dont know it,..and most wont,..i guess my aim is for lost sinners,..that might read my posts and something triggers something to make them seek The Lord,in Truth,..not in any religion
    EW,..you couldnt offend me if you tried,..but suggesting im pharisee/saddusee/denominational religion,..comes close,..IM KIDDING IM KIDDING
    let be be clear ….they stuck to the letter of the Law……..i stick to the letter of the Word,..The Written Word,..its there so none of us get puffed up or above ourselves,..and is a guide to go by,…and a test for any spirit of any kind,..even the ‘spirit of christ’,..though most miss that,..there is a test for it,..i havent seen anyone pass it yet,..it has a certain attribute about it!…and i wouldnt dare anyone to say they are full of it,…i’ll stick with putting myself firmly as a lost sheep sinner,..and a black one at that,..i will stick to the Word,..and my Saviours ” Laws, to the letter, best i can….as for The Fathers Commandments and Laws,..i will love them and honor best i can,..but the difference tween me and the pharisee/saddusees/denominational religions,.if i keep the first of The Fathers and The Sons second, i dont have to go out of my way to carry the other 300 odd the pharisee/saddusees did…..denominational religions with even more foolishness.

    i hope you understand this?

    EW,.. i do try to understand the Fathers Love,..and His Mercy,…i can say with my heart,..a rotten sinner like me has without a doubt, felt and confess The Holy Spirit,has lead me down a path in the last few years i could only have ever dreamed of,..i daily try to learn of/from My Lord about His Father and His Holy Beyond Measure Love,.have tasted it in small amounts and ways,seen it with my eyes, and feel it with my inner man,.at many different times,..but i know its nothing compared to what will come,..as for rest for my soul,..i thought id never feel it,but i do and confess it,..and give all glory to my Lord and His Father for it..i know like the other things,.its only a taster for The Kingdom when The King is sent back by His Father to fulfill what is Written,…what that will bring is beyond our wildest imagination of love, peace,…and ohhhh for that Spirit of Joy,..that Only One Man thats Lived has ever been given,..My King

  9. EW here. Brian, I still see that I am not a comunicator, Because, though you have taken my words as a direct insinuation of judgment on you, I do not. I speak in general or to all people as though Jesus has told me something to pass on to all people. I agree with you that the litteral word of God is our foundation. And that word has been and still is being treated as has the constitution of the United States; it is constantly twisted to benifit those with desire to controll all wealth and people. This, I perceive, to be why the Lord said to obey the laws of your land. For wheather it is a so-called democracy or dictatorship (THE MAJORITY) has the power to make things right in the sight of God. However, no where on earth does this happen(the same as the scripture). Therefore, the very judgment that the world has given to it’s self, is the judgment coming on all people for going against God(WILL BE LEFT WITH NOTHING but PAIN and desire to be LOVED). This is the point that I feel Rachel is trying to relay to all who will listen. When we are critical of another, because they do not see all of what we perceive ourselves to know, may be fine in a private conversation, but not to the point that a new convert might see us as typical denominational religion. —We must each, do our own study and relationship with the Lord. This is the point that I see yourself, Rachel and all others who enter this blog, as to be trying to accomplish and pass on. For what we get wrong, our great Lord has paid the price of. It is our willingness to help others to grow closer to HIM that HE is looking for in each of us! Does this make sence?

    • EW,..of course dear man it does,..im maybe not the best communicator at getting my point across…but ill let you and others judge me on my words,..and i have tried always to help others seek Our Lord in Truth,…maybe what seems provocatively, but if it makes you me or anyone else open up our Bibles to search for the answer and in time the Truth shines through,..then worth while,

      lets talk about pain,America,and where its going to start,

      first of all you got to realize who america is and whose living there.
      and who is about to go through pain of labour and giving birth,..and where judgement on the world is going to start!

      Rachel has a few new videos coming in here,..if we scrutinize them carefully we all might learn something,…if we stick to Scripture
