The Kingdom of God has never changed. We may hear words that doctrines and traditions have considered vital that have carried us through seasons of change throughout history, but the Kingdom of God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. We may find ourselves comfortable fellowshipping with certain groups of people that have similar knowledge of God's testimony allowing us to lift and edify one another in that knowledge, but this is not the fullness of His Kingdom. We must be cautious not to judge the difference, but to unite the foundation rock of God's Kingdom: The resurrected LIFE of Jesus Christ who is the head of the body of Christ (Colossians 1:18).When Jesus Christ is our Lord, we become a part of His diverse membered body called Christ (Romans 12:5). His body only has the Holy Spirit. Any other spirit that rules in His body grieves the Spirit of God in us.The big picture is that the Spirit of God is not leading and guiding, and the house of God is being shared by others.
Before the presence of Adam and his wife, as they stood they saw...God selected a LAMB, fastened it to the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and slew it before their eyes. The innocent victim, the LAMB of GOD was made naked, stripped of its skin to be made a covering for Adam and his wife's rebellion, guilt, shame, and self-ego. "The Lamb was slain from the foundation of the world" (Rev. 13:8).
"Thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ's victory] and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere, for we are the sweet fragrance of Christ [which exhales] unto God"
These words of Paul are describing an atmosphere that goes before us as a parade for a victory celebration because we are manifesting the glory of His presence in the world. He goes on to say, "For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ."
Notice Paul's words..."as of God, in the sight of God." This is not the position of a Christian that knows about God as a sinner saved by grace. It is not the wisdom of a Christian that fellowships with Christ having the ability to pray in tongues. These positions are stepping stones of preparation of the bride, but have yet to encounter the experience of oneness with Christ...
"For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim reflection, but then we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part, but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood. And so faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
Everything can be shaken in our atmosphere except faith, hope, and love. These cannot be taken away by external circumstances. No matter what areas of our life come and go; money, people, health, circumstance changes, etc. what keeps us is not these things but the internal presence of: faith, hope, and love. When we join in the victory posture of Christ in us, the position where all circumstances have been overcome by the blood of the lamb, and we live today as new creations in Him celebrating the victory of an overcomer, we change the atmosphere of the world we are established in by the attitude of our heart.
Everything that God creates has the ability to function by the law of God for that particular creation to manifest what it was created to be. Within its DNA God gives the creation also the possibility to reach its maximum full potential. When the creation reaches its full potential it then produces its greatest value. However, the science behind the system of God's creation is that each creation depends on another to reach its full potential.
Example: A seed planted in the soil that has lost its nutritional value will not produce a health plant. The plant will not produce quality fruit. The fruit will not contain the fullness of nutritional value for the person eating it. The person will not have their fullness to function at optimal level because they are lacking a particular nutrient in their diet that was inadequate in the fruit. Everything functions by God's law of creation.
Now, let us take this and apply it to our position we have today in Christ as His body....
This holiday season is significant like no other ever seen in history. For those that are looking for the return of the Lord as a man named Jesus appearing in the sky; they will miss what God is doing today; the resurrection of Christ in the flesh.
The crowning glory of a woman, the church is to produce a child. A woman releases a trumpet sound just before the crown of the head of the baby in her womb is seen entering the world which announces that the fullness of the baby is coming out NOW.
Today, we the bride of Jesus Christ, married to the Lamp of God, are pregnant with HIS WORD, His identity, ready to give birth to the body of Christ as one releasing the sound of praise to the Lord, for the light of the world is here. God placed the fullness of time strategically throughout Scriptures in the Menorah as the Lamp of God. Day one of creation is connected with the first Feast of the Lord, Passover; the Spirit of the Lord; and the body of Christ illustrated by John in the seven churches of Revelation.
Each man, woman, and child has been given a gift from God that is greater than money, food, or any tangible item. It is the gift of time. This gift consists of 86,400 seconds that are more precious than gold. Each second can be wasted on fear or invested in faith. Both are asking us to believe in something we cannot see; something in the future. It takes the same amount of energy to worry as it does to believe and hope; however, fear will steal your joy. Job 3:25-26 says, "The worst of my fears has come true, what I've dreaded most has happened. My repose is shattered, my peace destroyed. No rest for me, ever-death has invaded life."
The free will of our life is how we choose to use this gift of God. The consequences of that choice will determine life or death.
In the Beginning… "The earth (me) was without form, and void (who am I); and darkness was upon the face (identity) of the deep (my heart, inner most being). And the Spirit of God moved (impregnated, quickened) upon the face of the waters (the seed of God planted as my DNA). And God (Christ) said, Let there be light (god, me): and there was light (birthing of His seed). And God (Christ) saw the light (His son), that it was good: and God (Christ) divided the light (identity in Him) from the darkness (ignorance, unknown)" (Genesis 1:2-3).
The church has been trying to figure out "who they are" being tossed to and fro justifying the means of how to prepare themselves without spot or wrinkle to be the bride of Christ from the interpretation of men. Men can talk to women about how to be a bride and how to have a child, but without the experience, there is no reality. Do we really desire for the return of the Lord, or do we just want to talk about our imagination?
I stand on the Mount of Transfiguration and see out from the height of heaven the vastness of the earth: Valley of Megiddo, mountains of Jordan, and sea of the Mediterranean. The height of carnal wisdom and vastness of men's knowledge that fights against the Lord, my beloved I stand. I stand as a lightning rod of fire and pillar of my heart connecting the head and body of Christ, heaven and earth together as one. The footstool of my Father is the mercy seat I sit upon with my beloved Jesus. It sits upon the earth that belongs to Him. I stand with Him placing His mercy and grace as a banner of unconditional love upon all the earth as He directs my steps. My eyes see as one with Him, Father release the forgiveness of your Life in me to them, that they may receive your goodness and love and mercy. I and my beloved are one in love. My feet are resting upon his footstool in the presence of his kingdom. The fruit of his love is seen throughout the barriers of time...
