Nov 3rd – Righteous Reign
Matthew 25:6 And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’
Matthew 25:6 And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’
Psalm 24:3-6 Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord, And righteousness from the God of his salvation.This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face. Selah
Repentance, Obedience, Wisdom, Righteousness = new realm of love and power for those who walk in them.
This is the path and reward of those who seek God in truth and spirit. You can’t seek truth and it not change you; for it’s of the purest love.
These concepts tightly fit together reflecting different aspects of the same truth. For those seeking the True God and being prepared by the Holy Spirit, they’ve partly abided in them by the power of the Holy Spirit within them. Eph 4:29-32 Walking in these principles bring an abundant life and more so now as the new age dawns; the Age of Righteousness; when we can walk perfectly unto eternal life by the fullness of Christ.
At Christ’s second coming, He is filling us and making us truly righteousness to abide in eternal life with Him. Christ gave the remission of sins; enabling us to walk the path of repentance. Acts 2:38, 10:43 As His Day dawns, He is giving the fullness of His Spirit enabling us to walk in the fullness of righteousness. Receiving the fullness of His Spirit is the realization of the promise of salvation. 1 Peter 1:10, Rev 12:10, Psalm 25:12-13
In this earth, righteousness will soon begin its reign in power where unrighteousness has prevailed. No one could fully walk in righteousness until the fulfillment of the times when Christ would begin the establishment of His Kingdom upon the earth; the new Jerusalem, Mount Zion. Psalm 25:13
Those of you who have lived and been trained by the Holy Spirit are very blessed. You’ve tasted how the power of the fullness of Christ’s spirit within you transforms your soul from one of death to one of life; from a place of darkness to a place of light. No more will you cast a shadow of darkness, but a brilliant shadow of light as the fullness of Christ comes upon you.
Until the end, no one has lived with the fullness of God except for Jesus as we witnessed because He couldn’t die. But as the new age dawns, the fullness of God will come upon those prepared vessels as it’s the time when Christ is glorified. His glory is what He accomplished; giving His pure Spirit to fill thus redeem mankind and destroy sin/death forever. In the fullness of righteousness; there is no death. The Holy Spirit has been the guarantee of receiving this fullness of Christ. When that fullness comes upon those prepared, the Kingdom of God will begin to be established on this earth and righteousness will begin to reign. 2 Corin 5:5
With righteousness reigning, if you walk in unrighteousness great tribulation will come upon you. The turmoil is to move you to repentance from all your lawless ways to the ways of God. If you seek repentance, which is to learn and to walk in obedience thus the wisdom of God, your life will transform into the most amazing oasis of peace, beauty, power and love. Thus peace for the righteous; tribulation for the unrighteous. Isaiah 57:1-6, 19-21, 65:13-15, Matthew 24:37-44
In receiving this fullness of Christ, you will be as He is; thus you will see Him fully. 1 John 3:2 He is most magnified and glorified when we are like Him; in being less we can’t comprehend His full glory. As Christ became a part of human flesh so we could know Him; He is lifting us up to be like Him so we can truly know Him thus glorify Him. John 17:22-24
Christ is coming as a purifying fire. If you are prepared in truth and receive Him, it will be a glorious transition because you’ve learned all He is, is all you desire. If you aren’t prepared in truth; then you’ll cling to your lawless ways because you think they are good though they are evil. Those deeds will bring great turmoil to your life.
Seek God in truth and spirit; which is beyond all man-made images of who He is (i.e., religion), into a place of pure spirit. Learn about Him, from Him. Do this and you will be greatly blessed because you will be called Christ’s brethren; sons of God. John 6:45, Psalm 25:4-5
Repentance is having great understanding that God is perfect love and that is what you truly desire. For those who now walk this path; they will receive the inheritance of the first born of the sons of God; which is a level of love thus power this world has never known.
The eternal Spirit, who created all things, has a fatherly nature that desires to give us the most incredible inheritance so we lack nothing for eternity. Luke 12:32 He desires for our spirits to overflow with the eternal treasures; love, truth, joy, delight, power, liberty, and peace. And eternity starts NOW for those who come to Him, in truth and spirit. Isaiah 55:6
We were created to be the family of God. By making us a part of Himself through Christ’s spirit in us; we are able to abide with Him always in the perfection of love. John 1:12 There is nothing that God will hold back from us because the world is His, He lacks nothing and He loves us. Psalm 34:10
How incredible this birthright. Our Creator, the perfect Father, is giving us all that is His and above all, Himself.
How do we come into this inheritance?
We choose to sow love.
Before us is a choice: to embrace our birthright into the eternal kingdom of everlasting goodness or to remain consumed by the fleeting lusts of the world, which ultimately destroy our souls. And people are far more bound by lusts than they realize.
Lust controls and rules us. It drives us to fulfill its call only to the debasement and dishonor of ourselves and others. It produces harm, suffering and affliction amidst its ravenous emotions. Conversely, love is gentle and kind, and desires to be received and returned. The former comes from the depravity and debase nature of this world full of corruption and lies, the latter from the infinite source of purity.
Hebrews 12:16 lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright.
The life of Esau is an illustration of choosing the lust of the world. He sold his birthright in which all would be his as the first born son for a pot of stew. In his blindness, he thought he was going to die from hunger, so what good was a birthright if he was dead? Thus, he gave it up. This symbolizes how people exchange the Kingdom of their true Father for the fleeting lusts of the world. Isaiah 22:12-14 When these are our pursuit, we destroy ourselves and harm those around us. Spiritual blindness causes people to give up glory for shame. Isaiah 64:4-5, Romans 8:13
Our Creator desires the best of everything for us; for this is love. By giving us His spirit through Christ, we are able to “see” and thus pull our head out of the sand of false images and see what the God of love is giving us. But we must seek to “see” because of the multitude of false images and love is received.
Will we remain in the lusts of the world signified in all the images it promotes? What is beautiful, successful, powerful, wise .. what is God (ie Religion). James 3:15-18 This world is full of images that people worship with their resources: time, money and lives. While God and all His characteristics are without images, thus not of religion, because He is far beyond what any image can contain; Satan is the god of images. When we desire and feed the images of this world, we worship Satan. When we desire the purest of love and feed it; we worship God.
We accept our inheritance of God when we sow the truths of God, which are of love. In sowing the lust of the flesh; we neglect sowing the righteousness of God and trample upon His wisdom and inheritance to us. It keeps us separated from the true love, peace, joy and life that is without end and continually increases. You can’t serve both lust and love for they are contrary to one another. This justification harms and imprisons many. Serving lusts of the flesh reveals a heart destitute of love; a heart that doesn’t know God. John 17:3 Thus, it grieves His Holy Spirit which desires to sow righteousness in our souls. This is why God hates this mindset. Romans 9:13 Your mind is your destiny.
The truest love can only come from a union with the source of love. God wants to pour His love upon us, but as love is gentle and is to be received; we must come to Him. He has already extended His love to us; now we are to embrace Him by seeking the truest purest of love in all areas of our lives, for this is now He manifests Himself to us. Isaiah 66:2 If we seek, He will open our eyes.
Isaiah 63:10 But they rebelled and grieved His Holy Spirit; So He turned Himself against them as an enemy, And He fought against them.
Our choices are starting to manifest as God is coming to establish His kingdom. You don’t want to be unknowingly fighting against God, you won’t win. Righteous love will reign. Seek to know God’s love in truth, so you can choose it. You live by what you know. The lusts of the flesh will manifest in the gruesome stench of death they create in those who cling to them; while the love of God will bloom into a magnificent garden of delights beyond what has been previously seen or known. Our lives are bearing the fruit of our hearts; may they be full of the truths of God, thus the love of God.
Luke 17:24 For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day.
Psalm 18:19 He also brought me out into a broad place; He delivered me because He delighted in me.
Hosea 10:12 Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.
QUESTION: Are you following Christ out of the pit and into the Kingdom? OR are you clinging (unknowingly or knowingly) to the sides of the pit by remaining in sin and unbelief?
Isaiah 1:18-20 Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord, Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land; But if you refuse and rebel, You shall be devoured by the sword”; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken
25-26 I will turn My hand against you, And thoroughly purge away your dross, And take away all your alloy. I will restore your judges as at the first, And your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city.
The Kingdom of Righteousness is now being established in the earth. This is how it’s occurring…
The Kingdom starts as a mustard seed and grows. Matthew 13:31-33 It grows from within out. Luke 17:21 Because it’s NOW being established, we NOW have the power and grace of Christ moving IN US pulling us out of the pit and purging us from all corruption; IF we embrace Him, the truth, Word of God. Rev 19:13, 1 Peter 1:13, Isaiah 26:12
Isaiah 40:5 The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
Christ’s spirit IN us transitioning us into the sons/daughters of God is His glory being revealed because this transformation was the purpose of Him entering the flesh and into death. Thus, as Christ’s glory is manifested, those who are truly of God are revealed for His presence in them will become undeniable. John 6:45, Romans 8:18-19
As Christ’s kingdom is established, people are either being pulled out of the pit or clinging to it by remaining in sin. If we cling to it, all will perish for this world of wickedness is passing away. 1 Corin 3:13-15 We will be “burned” by the righteousness of Christ’s spirit as He usurps the wickedness and establishes righteousness. 2 Thess 1:7-8 The spirit of God is the fire to consume the earth. “For our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:29
Known by Their Fruit
Being pulled out of the pit and into the Kingdom means we are growing in unity with the spirit of wisdom, Christ’s Spirit, speaking to us from within on how to live in righteousness and pure honoring love. As we follow His lead by His power in us, the corruption/sin (anger, bitterness, hypocritical love, judging spirit, lust of eyes/flesh, idols, false images, unbelief, etc.) is purged from our lives. If we aren’t following; it’s not being purged. According to our hearts being changed or not, each one of us is witnessing either increasing good fruit or bad fruit in our lives. Luke 6:44, Proverbs 11:18-19
Proverbs 11:3-5 The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them. Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, But righteousness delivers from death. The righteousness of the blameless will direct his way aright, But the wicked will fall by his own wickedness.
The path we’ve really chosen, despite our professions and religions, is becoming more apparent as our fruit reveals our choice. Until now, the wheat and tares looked similar as the glory of Christ hadn’t been manifested in people’s souls. But as He starts to rise in our hearts, those sowing unity with His spirit will experience increasing peace, love, joy, rest, wisdom, understanding, prosperity, protection, and healing. Those not following His Spirit will experience increasing angst from abiding in the pit of darkness; unrest, suffering, pain, affliction, and hardship. These difficulties serve to turn souls from the paths of death to the paths of life to become renewed unto eternal life. Matthew 13:28-30
This separation caused by the Spirit of Christ will cause a great division in this earth. This division causes the kingdom of darkness to fall; for a kingdom divided can’t stand. As evil’s reign has made ALL a slave to sin; righteousness’ reign will make ALL a slave to righteous love. Isaiah 26:9 , 1 Corinthians 15:22 Christ will reign, until He puts an end to all powers contrary to Him. 1 Corin 15:22-26 It’s a reign within our hearts because that is where the fruit of this earth is produced. Everything starts from within, thus this is were restoration begins and ends.
This earth and all that it is, is being transformed by the souls transitioning into sons/daughters of light. This earth is what it is because of the souls that live in it. Change the souls; change the earth. Change the souls by changing the power of the air from Satan to Christ. Ephesians 2:2
What fruit your heart is producing signifies which way you are headed. If it is in the wrong direction; now is the time to seek the will of God and start following His spirit of wisdom leading you from within in the paths of peace and the purest of love.
1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
Ezekiel 10:4 Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub, and paused over the threshold of the temple; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the LORD’s glory.
Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be REVEALED IN US.
1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God.
Romans 8:18-19 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.
Proverbs 2:21-22 For the upright will dwell in the land, And the blameless will remain in it; 22 But the wicked will be cut off from the earth, And the unfaithful will be uprooted from it.
Talking about how the sons of God are part of bringing in the kingdom, thus why we are here, and protected by God by His kingdom growing from within – out.
Do you believe this truth; holiness leads to happiness?
My life testifies to this truth; though when I look around it’s dismissed by a multitude of lies, as it once was in my life. The main one being you can’t be truly holy AND happy because the path of holiness leads to continual sacrifice, thus suffering and lack. This is the world’s lie, when in reality the opposite is true; holiness leads to happiness. This lie keeps us from seeking it, thus truly seeking to walk in oneness with God and His perfect wisdom that makes our lives a continual feast. Psalm 138:8, Proverbs 15:15 To understand this dynamic of holiness and happiness is a part of knowing the true God.
Purging False Images
To understand this truth and for it to become real in our life, we first have to set aside all images of holiness; cathedrals, nuns, convents, contrived humility/meekness, anything eternal. Mark 7:7-8, 15 Holiness doesn’t come from the external, but internal. It’s of the heart, thus to know it ALL images related to it have to be purged. When we willing offer this clean slate to God; then the deep instruction of God begins. He destroys the lies and replaces them with truth.
What is Holiness?
Holiness = feeling, thinking and doing what is the most loving and honoring (2 sides of same coin) for ourselves, others and God.
Holiness is the result of an inner transformation of the soul affecting our heart, spirit, and mind. It’s the interworking and result of purity, truth and love that come from being a part of God and obeying God’s truth. We become holy as we obey God’s instruction within our soul; for that is where God communes with us. When we obey we love. We obey when we love God. We obey because God’s ways are love. As we obey we become united to God. Then, holiness shines in us and lights the space around us.
If you continuously abide in pure love for yourself, others and God, what do you suppose the state of your soul will be?
Brings Abundant Life
Walking in God’s truth, which is obeying His counsel within our soul, is walking in true wisdom. When we act in wisdom, our life is recreated inside and out. Wisdom transforms not only us, but the space around us. It creates a life of inner and outer growing peace, purpose, rest, purity, healing … truly all things that bring abundant happiness and everlasting joy. Christ spirit in us is our wisdom. 1 Corin 1:30, 2 Peter 1:4 His Spirit within us counsels and instructs us in all wisdom, which is the most loving and honoring decision that results in holiness.
Becoming a Vessel of Honor
Once we truly start seeking God, our sin is used for refinement. The consequences of the sin (as an illness, hardship, angst, unrest, stress, etc) present a sign that we are going against God’s will, which we don’t desire for it leads to all those things we don’t want. If we are of God, we desire to abide in love and not have any sin abiding in us. We want purged all that is contrary to God, so we can dwell in perfect unity with Him. 2 Peter 3:11, 13-14 We need wisdom’s rebukes in our spirit so we can walk in the way of righteousness. Proverbs 1:23 As we grow in obedience, which is growing in love; the result is holiness. If we take away honor or love, then we take away holiness and joy.
Happy is he who trusts in God. When we trust we obey. If we trust external things to bring us honor/value/love, we’ll block holiness thus happiness.
Psalm 146:5 Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in the LORD his God,
Ask God to build this truth in your life. This transformation within your soul is now possible as Christ is making His home in the souls prepared for Him. Rev 3:8, John 10:9 His spirit in us compels, enables, and empowers us to walk in the purest of love. Without His spirit, we can do nothing. With it nothing is impossible. His spirit is the morning star that is now rising in our souls. As we go through this transition, we are becoming a part of God’s house built without hands for Him to dwell in forever. Ephesians 2:20-21
Psalm 144:15 Happy are the people who are in such a state; Happy are the people whose God is the LORD!
