Here Comes the Son

Here Comes the Son

 I woke to “Here Comes the Sun” in my head; and rightly so …

as obedience to truth sets you free and manifests the Son in you.

 He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions. Psalm 107:20

Not man-made commands, religious rules, formalities, or protocols, … anything external, but the words of the Eternal Father spoken to your individual heart is what sets you free from the pit of death and the prison of your mind. All of which, Christ made possible. It’s His spirit speaking to your spirit words of life; as they are words infused with His spirit and His faith. When His words are heard and received, spirit to spirit, then obedience is possible and exponentially powerful because of the love exudes.  He is speaking; are you listening?  Jeremiah 11:7-8, 9:13-14 When you listen within, for that is where the Father speaks to you, He gives YOU the truths that YOU need to be free.

A personal reflection  …

The other day, I saw a “funk” rising on the horizon of my soul. It’s like a dark cloud that manifests various thoughts contrary to peace, truth, and love. I’ve learned it’s the sensation of a battle rising in my mind as God is bringing in a glorious truth to reveal and dislodge a lie. As the truth moves in, it transcends me into a deeper level of love; thus power and freedom in my mind and soul.

Knowing what was approaching; I asked for the truth to set me free. (A very powerful prayer) And God answered …

“Seek to put on immortality; think nothing of the flesh that is quickly passing away.”

Now this may not mean much to you, because it was for me, but those words burned like fire into my soul. I heard them before, but this time they went much deeper. They burned off the muck of lies clinging to the sides of my mind causing me to act in ways contrary to the love of the Father. Because of it being the Father’s perfect revelation at the perfect time, I readily received it. I embraced it and the lie I had been serving was expelled; thus obedience.

With this truth written on my heart, I obey/live in this Truth and no longer the lie. The living/obedience to this truth is easy because of the previous truths He has assembled in me supporting it in combination with His power at work in my soul. Ephesians 1:19 See the grace in the midst of obedience? Immediately, the dark cloud dissipated and the Son rose on the horizon of my soul. Victory gained. 1 John 5:4

A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” John 14:19-21

If you ask, listen, and obey, the Father is faithful to give you the truths that shatter the prison bars of your mind. This is the process of the flesh-mind burning, being destroyed, purged, and dying, and His Divine Mind being knit to yours.

The fire of truth will season us all. 1 Corin 3:13-15. Question is do you recognize the fire; know what to seek, how to listen, and walk (obey) in that truth? Do you embrace the heat and learn the truth in love? Or do you wallow in the muck and misery of your imprisoned soul?

Obedience Tainted

The concept of obedience has been greatly tainted with various doctrines/philosophies calling to the extremes; all masking its powerful truth. When the Father is talking about obedience, He is talking about pure love; loving Him, loving you, and loving others.  All His words spoken to your spirit serve love. 2 John 1:6 AND to truly love is impossible without attachment to the Diving Mind of God for He is truth and pure truth comes from His spirit directly to yours. He is the Truth and power you need to truly love. To obey Truth is to love.

To love with the love of God is to know and abide in honor, holiness, purity, righteousness, and wisdom, which are all different angles of His love. All these characteristics we must be taught by God the true meaning of. These concepts are all deeply intertwined and cannot be separated. For those who separate these in their beliefs; for example … “yes, he is love, BUT he is just …” which is spoken to justify horrific doctrines (ie. eternal torment), they aren’t serving God, but Satan. The separation makes them not truth and thus they are the doctrines of lies and false images. Satan is the father of lies, there is no truth in him. He can’t put together these concepts because they are truth so under his doctrines they remain broken false images and counterfeits of the real thing. 1 Timothy 4:1-2 Doctrines that keep you from the power of obedience in love are not of God but of the god of this world who feigns truth.

Knowing the Father is knowing these characteristics and their concinnity. Jeremiah 9:24

Obedience Lived

Each one of us has our own network of lies that keeps us from knowing love, having love and giving love. Only the Father who knows the interworking and depth of our spirit can give us the truth we need right now; the next building block to freeing our minds. The truth builds. HE assembles the truth in you. YOU go to Him directly, listen and follow. Ask for the truth to be set free as He reveals the bondage in your life. He’ll reveal one by one, and with each transition from a lie to the truth; you step away from the pit toward the light. Psalm 107:9

Truth is truth. When we live/obey in the words of God; we become spiritually alive and our lives bear the glorious fruit of truth. John 17:3 Christ enables us to obey as He comes intimately into our soul and instills the truth and the power to live it.

The disobedience that will destroy you and keep you in the pit and prison of your mind, is a refusal to listen and obey the beautiful truths your Eternal Father is speaking to your soul to set you free and abide with Him in love. Jeremiah 13:10, 12:17, Hebrews 8:10

Obeying the truth allows Christ to manifest Himself to you, for He is truth … Here Comes the Son.

Living Day to Day

Living Day to Day

To live day-to-day or to be present-minded, thus to not worry about tomorrow, brings abundant peace and rest as it prohibits worry and fear from talking hold for there are no anxious thoughts of the future for these to grab a hold of.

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.

Hebrews 4:12 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.

This state of mind comes from trusting God. To let go of an unknown future requires either no care (which is to cease to love and refusing to know love) or trust in an all-powerful loving God.

How do you trust God? Know Him in truth and spirit.

We have to seek to know God as we would do with anyone. We have to come to know Him as He is and not by the false images portrayed by organized religion. The constructs of His character have to be established within our minds. Romans 12:2 This is what it means to know someone and trust them because you know their character and it’s a nature you can have great confidence in, even in the unknown. Proverbs 3:26 We trust in not knowing the future, but in God and His character which is faithful, loving and all-powerful.

One of the key aspects to know about God in order to fully trust Him is His love. This sounds obvious and easy, but in a world where love has been tainted in every which way; coming to know His love to a point of a deep trust is something that is built over time. Yet, it can only be built if we consistently and diligently engage God in truth and spirit.

This world has not known the love of God. They have known false images of God that proclaim love but are infused with fear, guilt, and control because those images came out of the corrupted nature of man. It’s mankind creating his own image of God; the essence of religions. We can only know God by seeking for ourselves. It’s an individual endeavor. We can’t know Him from another person. The only way to know God and His love is to go to Him one-on-one and learn about Him personally through our circumstances as He teaches from within, because that is where God meets us and comes to us, within. Because God is an infinite spirit, there is no end to knowing Him.

The deep hunger in our soul; the part that desires to be filled, known, eternally accepted and loved, is the longing to be connected to the source of love in the deepest truest way. This is the place in us created by God for Him to fill and only He can for He created it in us for Himself. He did this because He loves us and desires a bond of love with us. True contentment comes by being filled and united with His presence, the Great Spirit who gives life to our souls.

When we come to this unity; peace rules our minds and hearts.

Colossians 3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.

Support and Faithfulness

Godly Support of Others

In these days as many are facing trials and challenges it’s so important to have the right support of others, for that can make all the difference. In this video, I talk about the support we should seek as well as be and the impact it can have in our walk.

Counting on God

We can’t expect God to answer our prayers according to our expectations … but we can count on His faithfulness in everything. In this brief video, I talk a bit about what can we expect from God and why sometimes our prayers aren’t answered as we expect.

Are YOU Ready?

Are YOU Ready?

As the end is drawing very near, each one of us needs to ask ourselves a very serious question, Are WE Ready? 2 Corinthians 13:5 Do we have the oil in our lamp so we’re prepared when the Bridegroom comes? Matthew 25:1-12 Are we a wise virgin with the knowledge and truth of God, or a foolish one lacking understanding and wisdom? Are we one to whom Christ’s return will come as a thief in the night or are we one who will know of His return? 1 Thessalonians 5:2-4

Oil in the Bible is equated to the Holy Spirit. The lamp is our soul. Matthew 5:14-16 Do we have the oil of the Holy Spirit that brings the true light and life of Christ within us; our guarantee we are His? Christ Jesus is coming for His Bride; those who are ready to be united to Him in truth and spirit. Like an earthly bride, there are preparations required. We need a spirit prepared to be united to Him.

How do we know that we have the Holy Spirit who is given as a guarantee and we are ready? 2 Corinthians 5:5 (Hint: it’s not just about speaking in tongues, which can easily be manipulated by deceptive spirits) There is MUCH deception these days around the filling, anointing and presence of the Holy Spirit in believers’ lives. How do we know that we haven’t been deceived into thinking we have the Spirit when we don’t, falsely promised by others that we do, and have a spirit of deception in His place? 2 Corinthians 11:4

We look to the Bible for our answers. 2 Corinthians 5 is a helpful chapter on the evidence one should experience in their lives when they have the Holy Spirit.

Evidence of Holy Spirit within You

First, you are taught by God. God Himself prepares your soul for Him. (vs. 5). Jesus is the Word. It’s the Word that sanctifies you. John 17:17 This preparation of God entails you diligently abiding in the Bible, the Word, and seeking the Spirit of God to instruct and teach you in who He is, in truth and your union with Him. John 6:45, 1 John 2:27 It’s allowing the truth to penetrate your life in molding, changing and setting you apart for Christ. He teaches you and His truth starts abiding in you altering your life.

Second, you obey God. (vs 9) When you have the Holy Sprit, it’s your aim (internal desire) to please God, thus obey Him. You seek in the Bible, being taught by the Holy Spirit, to know God’s ways and truth so you can walk in them. You are driven to know truth so you know you are pleasing God and not following the dictates of your own heart or following the ways of others. Matthew 15:8-9

Third, you fear God. (vs. 11) When the Holy Spirit dwells within you, you fear God in all areas of your life. You feel very accountable to Him, like a good child to a parent or a faithful employee to a tough boss. No one else has to hold you accountable to the things He tells you because you fear Him. Yes, others can point out your blind spots, but to what God has told you, you possess a strong will to do what God says out of a fear of going against Him. When HE tells you to do something you do it. Though you may have to war against you rebellious sinful flesh, the desire in your deepest self is to do what God has asked of you. It’s a desire to be obedient; therefore your choices will reflect that obedience. What you do will also be driven by love. Though you fear Him, you also know of His love for you. The course of your life shifts to align to His will. Again, you seek to know God’s will from Him and not from another because you want to be sure you are walking in truth and what HE desires, not being led astray by your own heart or someone else.

Fourth, you are a new creation. (vs.17) You start experiencing a deep change within. It feels like you’ve been given a new operating system that governs your body and soul. As a new creaiton, you are directed by God’s spirit and no longer your self-will. As the body and soul respond to the new operating system, you start to think, act and feel differently. Your desires change. Above all, your will longs to be in unison with God’s will.

Fifth, you experience fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Because these are fruits of the Spirit, it comes from the Spirit and not your self-imposed efforts. The occurrence of these fruits in your life comes from a place beyond yourself and what you use to know and do.

So are YOU ready by these measurements?

IF NOT, FEAST upon the pure bread of heaven; the Bible taught to you by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth. Seek the truth from Him as you abide in the Bible. Read with the motive to know God and to draw near to Him as someone you love in truth and spirit. This seeking and abiding is the path to being prepared for the soon coming Bridegroom.

The manifestation of all these points is a process. Though you may feel a lack in some of them, are you growing in them? Are you experiencing them more today than three months ago? Are YOU diligently seeking God or are you leaving the seeking up to someone else, to only live off their efforts? It doesn’t work that way. The wise virgins couldn’t give their oil to the foolish ones. And when the foolish ones came back with their oil, the door was shut. Are you ready with your own oil?
