The Shining of the Saints
This post is a bit longer … but if you can receive the words, you are embarking upon great freedom and power that will enable you to shine.
In the coming days, those who have been uniting to the Father, thus partaking of the divine nature of the heavenly Father, will increase in their illumination; a radiance of the heavenly realm. Their shining is His spirit being made manifest in the earth.
Their light is the expression of the spirit of the Father flowing through their loving righteous words and actions. It’s the aura of the divine encircling their lives, and extending itself to others in sincere love and the establishment of harmony.
To fully unite with the heavenly Father entails receiving His perfect love within us as a part of us to such a degree that we able to give it to others. Initially this may seem like a relatively simplistic task, because many falsely claim to possess it. But to hold and extend the pure perfect love of the heavenly Father; thus to receive the perfect love of the Father is a personal climb. It comes from an intimate communion with God, which allows Him to reconstruct our soul in holiness to embrace His spirit. It’s each individual’s pilgrimage out of the prison of lies and false images of God Himself to the ascension of the mind to a new frequency, a reality of which the only current to ride upon is His righteousness.
In the depths of us are core lies we initially received as truth into our soul, thus they are very true and real to us. These core lies prohibit the full acceptance of the perfect love of God that we must receive from Him – to such a degree that we are able to give it others. Acting in accordance to His love isn’t just a concept in our minds, but a reality in our lives. This pouring out of love, established upon truth, is a significant aspect of the shining of the holy ones; the ones who have been purified by the refining fire of the heavenly Father.
There is one of two lies that reside in the depths of people’s souls:
1. They are worthless, of no value, and insignificant.
2. They are hated and unloved.
Both of these are grounded in rejection and intertwined with one another, though most have felt one stronger than the other. These lies, and their variations and cohorts, create a vast emptiness in the souls of mankind. These core lies spawn many allies that create a locked-down reality of destitute poverty in the soul. They keep us tied and bound to death. These lies destroy us inside out.
They manifest great torments, pain, and suffering to others and ourselves. Many have spent their lives, mostly unknowingly, trying to cover these lies by convincing themselves they are worthy and loved. They have gone to great lengths to serve (worship) “acceptable” images they deem worthy and deserving of love. The lies have manifested numerous damaging and hurtful behaviors and decisions. They’ve entrapped people to worldly idols, self-righteousness, hypocrisy, addictions, depression, false images of God, abusive conditions, self-hatred, cruelty to others, and the list goes on.
THEY ARE LIES.
Each one of us, where truth exists, is greatly loved and valued. However like a seed of a glorious flower buried in mud and slim, we’ve been covered by the actions and words those lies have created. In our belief of these lies, our unique and precious value has been hidden. The soil we abide in has to be “tilled”, so that seed can bud into what it was created to be.
Tilling the Soil
These lies are the heavenly Father’s deepest concern. It’s His utmost desire for them to be revealed and destroyed because they keep us from a deep pure connection with Him. The lies block our soul from becoming His home; thus from Him creating our reality as His reality. He is love. To be united to Him in a true oneness, we must always abide in His love. Though His love has been there, until we fully receive it into our soul in truth and understanding; it’s not fully our reality. Thus, we are not yet His home. When we are His home, we are His light.
Defeating Our Enemies
To defeat these enemies of our soul, first the heavenly Father teaches us that these are lies and not truth, in concept. However, as our lives continue to testify that the lies are real because of all the poor actions and treatments we experience, the path to defeat has only just begun. Because they are at our very core, plucking of them out of our soul for good comes through a spiritual battle.
God is love. When He comes to put all things under Christ’s authority, He is coming in the weakest of vessels, us, for His strength is made perfect in weakness. He is coming with living light (refining fire), which is the flowing stream of His righteous love through His saints. The fullness of His love is beyond this world and always has been until the end of days, when those capable of holding such light receive His fullness. His perfect love contains all that He is (just, holy, pure, righteous, long suffering, gentle, powerful, mighty, humble, gracious, merciful) and thus of the most potent perfect power.
As the heavenly Father comes to make His abiding place in us, before we receive His perfect love born out of His divine character, we will have to battle these lies and this is how.
The Support of Righteous Acts (Bona Fide Faith)
In seeking the truth, the Christ, the Teacher, instructs us how to live in righteousness in our individual lives. We follow His directives by the understanding we gain from our intimate conversations with Him. Those instructions create certain actions/words. Those actions reflect the truth learned and our reality shows the results, fruit. For example, we act in love without hypocrisy, thus our relationships are true and life-giving. We possess a giving mentality versus taking, thus we have abundance for every good work. We return good for evil, thus the harm intended is replaced with increased growth and blessing. We bless and not curse, thus we help others to see the truth. We honor ourselves and others, thus we cultivate trustworthy relationships. We cease to lust for the contrived images of the world, thus we love others and ourselves in honor and truth. We treat others and creation with kindness and respect, thus we have increasing health and peace in our reality. We trust God in all matters of justice and don’t seek personal vengeance (inc. unforgiveness, anger, bitterness, resentments, etc), thus we receive abundant mercy in our lives. All our acts are of sincerity flowing from our heart, which is being infused with His light/truth, versus trying to conform our lives to some godly or good image. Our lives are a true and real reflection of a heart being transformed by the handiwork of God’s truth within it. Our lives, full of His ways, are writing the Book of Life; a book of living, life-giving acts ordained and governed by our personal internal interaction with the heavenly Father.
Spiritual Battling of Victory
Then, comes the battle. From our depths those lies come against full force. In the midst of the battle as those lies are raging against us, we look to our lives, the Book of life, and it testifyies that those lies are indeed lies and not truth. Instead of seeing a witness to the lies in our lives, we see a witness to a heart growing in pure love as testified by the righteous fruit born out of sincere love. When the contrast of the lie and the reality are before us; the lie, though fighting for its existence, is consumed in truth.
The lies have to be exposed, and then they can be rooted out. They are rooted out by God’s word in us backed by the witness of the sincere acts of righteous love (faith) in our lives. If we had no witness in our lives to the contrary, how would we truly know the lies weren’t true? Our obedience to the whisperings of Christ provided the ammunition we needed for those lies to be destroyed. If our lives testify to a changed heart, the lies are destroyed in this battle. If our lives testify to those lies, then the lies continue to consume us, and the perfect love of the Father is blocked from entering into our soul. A lie is truly destroyed when it is no longer reflected in our reality.
Faith without works is dead, unable to help in this battle.
Our victory over the world of lies, thus death, is our faith.
The righteous loving acts, coming out of faith, swallow up the lies. When they are swallowed up, we are enable to receive the perfect indwelling love of the heavenly Father. This indwelling love is the source of the light that shines into the world.
