A Prayer of Healing

We ALL need to be free. 
It’s Your divine love that we need.

May You, supreme perfect Heavenly Father/Mother who is beyond this creation, turn Your eye upon us and flood Your light of divine truth into this dark place. May Your Spirit of perfect love free this creation and every creature from fear, suffering, and death.

May the god of this world be healed by the light of Your countenance shining through those who love you. May his will be turned to Your will that all those under his sway may be transitioned into the light.

May those of contrary intent have their plans foiled and may the results prosper the heavenly Kingdom in their reality.

May those bound in emptiness without love experience the dawning of Your divine love in their reality.

May the weak, who are oppressed by those bound in emptiness, be freed from their bondage and suffering. May they be honored above all creatures.

May those who hunger and thirst for You and Your righteous love be filled to overflowing for the good of all.

May the glory of Christ be made manifest in this place so that You are united to Your entire creation in a bond of perfect love in all truth and sincerity, for this is Your will.

Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.

spa

The higher we ascend in understanding of divine love; the more our hearts start to mourn for the suffering occurring in this world. Our own peace doesn’t comfort us, for how can one who loves be comforted while others continue to suffer, and suffer greatly? In a world of suffering, peace is a byproduct of a hope, thus an illusion until the hope is fulfilled.

In lack of understanding, we are unaware of the extensive suffering throughout the world on many levels and the part we play in perpetuating the cruelty, suffering and pain. We don’t really “see” it. We may hear of it, but it doesn’t penetrate our being causing us to make a change. We feel empathy for a moment, but the blindness allows us to get caught up in our daily lives feeding the very cruelty we despise. Our hearts and minds are darkened so that we think “things aren’t so bad” and “we are pretty good”, thus others who are enduring suffering feel the coldness of a “hardened heart”. It’s understanding our blindness and the ability to be blind that creates true humility. We don’t know as we should. 1 Corin 8:2

For all creation is in bondage to the cruelty of others, as well as their own cruelty upon themselves. As a human being it’s near impossible to not be an instrument of cruelty to creation on some level. Our infrastructure isn’t built on the care of others, but on their abuse and suffering. And as it continues to expand upon cruel foundations, the suffering only increases. It’s like mud is everywhere and we can’t become clean, and the current mud makes more mud.

As we start to awaken to the truth, thus divine love, we start to see both the suffering and the part we play in it more clearly. This mindfulness is difficult to behold, for it cloaks the heart in a garment of mourning and sadness.

In this awareness, our hunger and thirst for righteousness grows strong and we push into it with all our being. Our hope is that the Creator will soon have great mercy and come to His creation to save, heal, restore, and renew. We have enough suffering. We need healing and renewal. Malachi 4:2 We need the medicinal touch of the Creator to flood this world like a light in the darkness to set us free from fear, pain, suffering, and death that we receive and give. To open up the door into this realm and let His presence overtake this place. For with every day, the suffering increases and a spirit of mourning grows heavy.

It’s a hope that can only be fulfilled by His spirit alone infusing this realm, infusing us, for it is impossible for the enslaved human spirit, which is bound in weakness, to break such strong bonds. With this hope of deliverance for all of creation from the chains of suffering, we become prisoners of hope. Prisoners, in their weakness, who can become so much more by His power in them. We are the problem, and we, in our very weakness, are the cure for Christ came to make us into the temple of the spirit of God, the spirit we all so desperately need. May we seek to be the temple of His divine nature.

Psalm 30:11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,

This verse and others like it, put a spark of life into the sadness, a hope. The hope that one day soon the suffering will end, that there will be no more cruelty, pain, and death. That the dawning day will truly bring in a Day that the Lord has made. Psalm 118:24 A Day to change all days. 

The ways of life are so beautiful. They captivate the spirit like the most stunning sunset. The purity and perfection they contain is glorious, harmonious, loving and life-giving. Yet, here in the world it is near impossible to abide in this beauty that our hearts so long for. Thus our hunger and thirst for His righteousness increase by which perfection is manifested among all of creation. We need deliverance, a healed creation, and the promise of it keeps us prisoners to this hope. I pray a hope that is soon fulfilled.

While we wait for the consummation of all our hopes, may we continue to seek to increase and abound in loving kindness. In this world, even little lights seeking to love others in sincerity and truth make a significant impact.

Zechariah 9:11-12 “As for you also,

Because of the blood of your covenant,

I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. 

Return to the stronghold,

You prisoners of hope.

Even today I declare

That I will restore double to you

A Free Mind is a Hopeful Reality

A Free Mind is a Hopeful Reality

space

This weekend I looked behind me, and it was a vast nothingness; the past wasn’t there.

This is a welcomed awareness. It was a vision that granted me a deeper understanding sending me into greater levels of enlightenment thus freedom.

Except for our memories, the past doesn’t exist. However, most of us act like it’s a living reality, thus make it one. We live by it, and from it create our present and future. Sometimes we try to hold onto it and live as a 20-year-old chasing what once was and thus are never satisfied with today. Other times, we live by its wounds, which taint our current health, relationships, jobs, etc. For example, we were hurt in a previous relationship in which someone betrayed us, and now we don’t or find it hard to trust others. We failed in a business venture, and now we don’t follow our desires but work in a job we don’t like. A parent called us a loser, and now we overeat to drown out that resounding voice echoing in our head. These are examples of living in and by the past, thus it creates our present moments and future. This projection of the past into the future is often at the core of those who struggle with depression, hopeless, and feeling trapped. This mentality can quench our hope because it prohibits our minds from growing and creating a present and future we do desire.

The fulfillment of hope, thus change, comes from allowing ourselves to learn from the past, but not live in the past. In learning from it yet not in it, our hope starts to become fulfilled, because we are open to learning and growing, which brings the fulfillment of the things hoped for. A learning and growing mind, a present mind, is receptive to new opportunities and better ways of being because it’s learning new ways of thinking. It enables alteration within our mind’s process thus real change in our choices, actions and behaviors.

What has this to do with our relationship with God? Everything.

The Spirit of God is in the present, for that is what exists and is real. As our internal teacher and counselor, He speaks to us right now with the purpose of transitioning our minds to operate by His truth and loving kindness. 1 Timothy 1:5 If our minds are bound to the past by functioning in and by mindsets like blame, bitterness, resentment, vengeance, covetousness, maliciousness, hatred, backbiting, unforgiveness, jealousy, self-pity, and so on we won’t hear His voice instructing us in a better way. When we give these mindsets control of our thoughts, they are loud and consuming. The thoughts God establishes in us are opposite of these, thus we have to be willing to turn away from these mindsets and learn to think in accordance to His wisdom, truth, righteousness and loving kindness. This is part of renewing our mind and a significant part of the repentance we’re called to. Romans 1:28-32, Romans 12:2

When we seek and follow His instruction, our minds transition to a present mindset where God guides us in new directions. He, and not our interpretation of the past, establishes our thoughts, thus our minds create fresh perspectives that translate into new actions, thus changes, and hopes fulfilled.

A part of moving out of our past and into the present is viewing our past with thanksgiving and honor. The upsets of the past can teach us important lessons of wisdom, truth and love that if we learn we won’t repeat the past hurts. All we went through and the people who were involved in those lessons teach us compassion and understanding. Once we learn from our situations, we are able to help others because we’ve learned the truth and practice the truth. Our past is cloaked with thanksgiving and honor when we see all the experiences and people they contained as part of our journey of growing in alignment with the divine wisdom of God. In this, the past, thus the present, translates into blessings instead of continual cursings because we’ve learned, grown, and can now help others. Some of our greatest hurts can teach us life-altering lessons that propel us forward to gaining a mind established on truth.

I’ve tasted a lot of different pains in my past. Once I started to seek after the truth, God has been using them to teach me and bring me to a deeper level of understanding and compassion I wouldn’t have had otherwise. It is truly God working all for good for those who love Him. Romans 8:28

This understanding of learning from our past but not living by it is deep and personal. We each have a myriad of experiences from our past, and if we allow the Spirit of Truth to teach us, we will learn from those experiences, grow, and begin to live in the present out by the wisdom they provided. This understanding sets our mind free, thus frees us.

The Shining

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.

Binding Lies

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.

Connecting to the Wisdom of God

Connecting to the Wisdom of God

 

This may be several posts … there is a lot to say but as you grasp this fundamental understanding I’m presenting, you will find it leads to the paths of righteousness, peace, and abundant life.

Consider three layers of thought/wisdom/consciousness: 1. thoughts of the individual, 2. cumulative thoughts of individuals, and 3. the Creator’s thoughts.

Our thoughts are all our ideas and concepts about ourselves, others, creation, and this life. Our thoughts form our wisdom, which is the ways we act, and that forms our overall awareness or perception, which is our conscience. It’s our conscience that directs us in our decisions.

If our conscience is pure, our decisions are good. If it is not pure, our decisions aren’t good. Hebrews 10:22 If our thoughts are of truth and love, then we have good wisdom thus a good conscience. If our thoughts are full of lies and deception we have foolishness thus a defective conscience. If we follow a defective conscience then our lives are full of pain, suffering, hardships, and tribulation. If we follow a pure conscience our lives are full of love, beauty, righteousness, and peace. Thus, the source of our thoughts is extremely important.

Source of Your Thoughts

Mankind’s Wisdom

Beyond your individual thought is the next layer of thought, the cumulative thought of mankind. This is the conglomeration of mankind’s ideas, concepts, thus the wisdom of mankind. It’s the mass dumping station of all individual thought; good and bad. We receive thoughts from this domain and put thoughts into it.

As a whole this mass wisdom of mankind seeks to answer questions thus govern people’s lives regarding all aspects of life; like what brings success, what is the nature of us and God, what brings happiness and peace, and what is the purpose of life? You can see this layer of cumulative thought of mankind in family units, cultures, societies, where there is a cohesiveness of beliefs and ideas causing similarities in behaviors and actions.

Most people seek wisdom or understanding within this sphere of mankind’s cumulative thought, wisdom or consciousness. Each concept has a bucket of ideas. For example, there is a bucket defining what leads to success. In that bucket are all the concepts and ideas of mankind of what brings success. Out of that bucket people select what makes most sense to them; and some add their own ideas to it. If a concept from that bucket doesn’t work people go back and seek another one; ie trends like positive thinking.

Because this sphere is made up of each individual’s ideas of what is good and how to live, it is full of contrary concepts and corruption. When people seek understanding of what is good and right from this pool of thought it creates chaos and confusion in their lives because it contains of all kinds of contrary ideas and concepts. Therefore division, lies, and deception are prolific.

The nature of this wisdom is that it is sought through the physical senses; your physical surroundings and perceptions. (Guided by God’s Eye or Yours?) Thus you are always seeking from what is previously known. You may put ideas together in new ways, but it is all coming from the same source. If you seek from corruption, corruption is what you get. If you seek something different or new from garbage, you will still get garbage. There are particles of truth within this realm, but mixing lies and truth results in lies. Galatians 5:9 As long as we are seeking wisdom from this sphere we are in a never ending circle of mankind’s wisdom that keeps our souls in corruption because this sphere is full of corruption; I’ll address more later.

The Heavenly Father’s Wisdom

The next layer beyond mankind’s wisdom is pure wisdom whose source is the Creator, God. This wisdom is the only wisdom that is truly pure, loving and perfect for it comes from an all knowing Spirit whose unchanging characteristic is pure love. When you seek God, you are seeking the thoughts or ways of His spirit relevant to your existence. This is seeking wisdom of the spirit, not based on your current surroundings and others’ ideas. When you seek His ways, you gain pure wisdom that manifests in your life in true peace, love, beauty, blessing, honor and so on. James 3:13-18

Where Does Your Mind Reside?

We all start out abiding in the sphere of mankind’s wisdom. Proverbs 22:15 From birth our lives are founded on lies because, one, we exist in a world where mankind’s ways/wisdom dominate and not God’s. Second, we start out operating by our senses; what we see, see others doing, what we hear, etc. This is how we learn as a child. We absorb and react to the environment we are in. Thus our foundation from birth is one of lies, which is building our house on the sand. Mathew 7:26 Lies about who we are, what this life is about, who God is, what our purpose is and so on.

People are sponges. We absorb characteristics from our environment and from people around us. This is evident in a child absorbing the environment of his family and the nature and spirit of his parents. This is why we are warned to be careful of our friends. Proverbs 22:24-25 This characteristic of our humanness is our weakness and strength; weakness when we seek and absorb the ways and characteristics of mankind’s wisdom, and strength when we seek and absorb the characteristics of pure wisdom, God.

Most seek wisdom from mankind’s sphere of wisdom, because as a child we operate by our senses (physical or flesh) and not by the spirit. Unless a conscious shift is made, we remain this way. Thus, we are detached from pure wisdom, which is beyond this layer. When we are governed by the sphere of mankind’s wisdom, our minds thus our lives form the ultimate prison because we are bound to the corruption of mankind.

However, when we are awakened out of this sleep of death that there is another way and start to seek the wisdom beyond mankind’s collective wisdom, the prison doors start to open as our mind is renewed. In order to find and follow this true wisdom, we must look to another way beyond our senses to be governed. And that governance is by the spirit of God within us.

Time for Renewal in You, In the Earth

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!”

Breaking Free

Breaking Free to Bring in the Light

 

Water turning into wine …

 

Behold, I send My messenger,
And he will prepare the way before Me.
And the Lord, whom you seek,
Will suddenly come to His temple,
Even the Messenger of the covenant,
In whom you delight.
Behold, He is coming,”
Says the Lord of hosts.

But who can endure the day of His coming?
And who can stand when He appears?
For He is like a refiner’s fire
And like launderers’ soap.
He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver;
He will purify the sons of Levi,
And purge them as gold and silver,
That they may offer to the Lord
An offering in righteousness.

Malachi 3:1-3

For the truth seekers, as your spirit is knit to Christ’s, what you experience is written above … a thorough scrubbing that leads to operating by the mind of God.

Two Prisons

In this scrubbing process, two prisons become apparent. One is the pit of the spiritually dead world that we are physically born into. You realize what we call life is death, and what we call death is still death. We wake, eat, sleep, and do it all over again day after day. Our spiritual power is minuscule. At times we see glimpses of our power derived from love, and that hope keeps us pushing forward. But even then, what we “see” pales in comparison to the power of a spiritually alive creation. As a whole, we are the weakest of creations; especially given the mind we possess.

It’s this one possession, our mind, that could make us most powerful, makes us most weak because of the cancerous corrosion it has undergone. And that leads to the other prison, our corrupted mind; corrupted because of the lies that rule it. When the mind is knit in lies, it creates a prison of depravity and bondage basked in debilitating harm. The narrow path to escape both prisons is to seek the truth in love from our Creator and eternal Father.

Freed from the Prison of Your Mind

Freedom from both prisons starts with the mind; as healing comes inside out. Seeking truth transitions the mind from a source manifesting harm to good. Romans 12:2

To abide in truth you have to seek for it because the multitude of lies. But if you seek you will find. Matthew 6:33, 7:7 When you find truth, there is no mistaking it because the new framework based in truth creates love that changes you and those around you. 1 Timothy 1:5

Launderer’s Soap

For those who have been seeking the Truth, as Christ’s Spirit fills your soul, every contrary aspect to His love in you surfaces. All is exposed in His light for there is no darkness in Him. All unrighteousness has to be removed as He moves in. His light exposes the layers of your soul, what you see, you want nothing to do with. This is the beginning of learning to “die to self”.  First you SEE, THEN you desire to die to your mind and feast on His. This is why the seekers of truth are being changed into wine. As the Light reveals the darkness, the truth they seek replaces the lies. Without truth, the lies remain in charge.

This depth of cleansing can be tough. However, it’s the path to the purest of love.  As the scum of your prison walls is exposed, Christ showers His affections on you and gives you the truth to grab a hold of. Bit by bit He breaks you free and fills you with Him. John 14:6, 10:27

As your soul is scrubbed, you must trust all to Christ as only He can free your mind, because you are in prison. This is His utmost desire because of His love for you. Zechariah 9:11, Isaiah 42:7 This is why He gave up His Spirit, to fill yours. You must be as a child trusting in a loving Father who can do all things, as it becomes obvious you can not as you come head-to-head with your limitations. You must trust in following His lead. This level of trust is very powerful. Choose to trust. Then your hunger for a righteous spirit will be satisfied. Matthew 5:6

Now is the time to dine with the Truth; to die to the old ways of thinking and acting that are revealed by the Light, and embrace the mind of Christ. Feast on His mind of truth, not your mind of lies. Let that mind die. What you feed will grow. Watch your thoughts. Seek to be aware of what you are meditating on, and meditate on the truths His Spirit teaches you. Starve all thoughts contrary to His truth; all fear, rejection, failure, and self-depreciating thoughts by not focusing or feeding them. Instead, feed your mind with the words of truth and who you are as His cherished creation. Isaiah 58

As minds are filled with the Light, the Light will implode the pit of the spiritually dead world and destroy it inside out, the first prison. With the Light here, the imprisoned spirits can be freed from their flesh graves and clothed with immortality. 1 Corinthians 15:54,  Zechariah 4:6

Continue seeking truth and you’ll find that Christ is allowing you to partake of His mind as you are able. He will show you beautiful truths about who you and others are as His beloved creation. You’ll see that the sin/darkness was a part of abiding in the pit and being spiritually dead, and His desire is to set you free from the prisons; internally and externally.

 “For behold, the day is coming,
Burning like an oven,
And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble.
And the day which is coming shall burn them up,”
Says the Lord of hosts,
“That will leave them neither root nor branch.


But to you who fear My name
The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
With healing in His wings;
And you shall go out
And grow fat like stall-fed calves.
You shall trample the wicked,
For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet
On the day that I do this,”
Says the Lord of hosts.

Malachi 4:1-3

Eyes of Light

Eyes of Light/Truth

Matthew 13:14-15
And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: ‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive; For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.’

Matthew 6:22-23
The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. “But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

Testing the Hearts of Mankind

Testing the Hearts of Mankind

Tribulation is coming upon the world. For some they will abide in rest because they’ve enter the true sanctuary of the presence of God. Revelation 3:10 Others, still needing purification from the lusts of the world, will encounter further purging, refining, and testing, so God can move in. Proverbs 17:3, Revelation 2:16

Your circumstances test and reveal your heart for out of your heart springs the issues of life. If you circumstances are of the true peace; then you’re entering into the Kingdom of God. If they are of unrest; you are being tested in whom you serve. Let your circumstances show YOU your heart then fully seek and turn to God’s wisdom. Some will try to run and hide from the turmoil, but they cannot because it comes from within. Others will cry out to the true God and He will answer and lead them on the narrow path of truth into His sanctuary of peace.

The purpose of the tribulation is to lead people to deep repentance from the powers of this world (see below) that control them and drive them into death. God is life. To desire God to govern your mind is to embrace eternal life. In His love, He is purging the powers contrary to His perfect love from your life because they destroy you and others, and hurt Him, for He cares for you.

Thus, some of you are going through a significant testing in your circumstances to reveal whether you truly know and trust the true God. During these trying times of your soul; will you cling to the God of truth and choose His truth over the worldly wisdom and the golden calves of mankind’s creation? As the refining/purging fire comes what will it reveal in your spirit? One clinging to truth or one clinging to the pit of lies? 1 Corin 3:13

The Pit Within

During this time people will come face to face with the pit within them. Within the souls of men is a pit. It’s the shadow of death from a severance in the love bond between them and their Father of Light. Some have been coming out of that pit and walking into the light thus into God’s love, others, in spiritual blindness, cling to it to their destruction. Jeremiah 6:19

People try to run from this internal pit of darkness by doing and clinging to all sorts of things to convince themselves it isn’t there (addictions, religion, busyness, contrived self-exaltation). Yet, at times it surfaces and shows its terror.

The pit sucks any aspect of love from a person’s life and leaves them empty and alone. It creates hypocrisy as they try to flee it in any way possible; even by acts they know are destructive. People are trying to escape and run from this internal darkness and yet in their trying they push into the powers of ruin, thus they are trying to smother death with death. When they feed these powers, they are keeping their souls bound to the pit they are trying to escape. Though God longs to be united to them; they have been imprisoned to serving the lust of the world because their love for it. Thus a pit of darkness and emptiness remains in them.

The pit is full of lies, fear, and pain. It’s where the power of ruins have their anchor in people’s souls. They have to be uprooted; so God can abide within.

Psalm 75:10 All the horns of the wicked I will also cut off, But the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.”

10 Powers (horns) of Ruin

  1. Pride
  2. Flesh worship; images created by world
  3. Hypocrisy
  4. Fear
  5. Dishonor/Oppression/Belittling
  6. Personal vengeance/blame
  7. Lust
  8. Self-power, control
  9. Judging/Criticalness/Condemnation
  10. Covetiveness

These torment the soul. Founded on lies, they are the powers that drive us toward death; what Christ came to destroy with His light/truth. The fullness of Christ in us destroys this pit because He is the consummation of love. This fullness is upon us to be received. When His liquid light of truth and pure love implode that place, then death is destroyed in us forever.

Hebrews 2:14-15 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Only God can show us the depth, expanse and power of these forces within us because we each have our own network of lies intertwined and twisted since childhood. Thus, the path of freedom entails a very personal interaction with our Creator. Seek their penetration to be expelled from your life, by the strength of God, down to the last residue clinging to the sides of your soul. He came to cleanse your vessel, let Him. To walk out of this pit is to forsake these powers and all related and connected to them.

If you are facing this pit, cry out to the God of truth. Forsake all artificial remedies of the world. It’s only covering death with death; as the lust of this world is the lust for death. Seek the eternal Light. Come to know the mountain of God; the mountain of truth established in unfailing love. Serve no other “truth” or wisdom but seek to serve the wisdom and love beyond this world yet for this world. Christ will not only deliver you, but will fill you with Himself; the most incredible light of truth and love. John 8:32 Be clear who you serve; and there are only two choices the God of truth or the god of lies and deceit. Pray to know the difference.

I’ve told you these things beforehand, so you may endure with fortitude. God is with you; there is tremendous power in trusting the living God. Cry out to Him for He cares for you; but you must receive Him for it’s the nature of love to be received and given.
