Today is a New Day
Flesh and blood cannot see, nor enter the Kingdom of our Lord. We are born, deaf, dumb and blind, we are spiritual lepers.
What must die is our carnal mind, and the associated realms of seeing and expressing our thoughts of Christ and His Kingdom. We must have a fresh revelation, a new understanding.
We must be born again and again, a continuous cycle of coming and going. Leaving our current circumstances and moving higher in our lives in Christ.
We are not what we think, this is vital to process! Our thinking is without question our greatest handicap, disability and hindrance. We are inclined to think of ourselves more highly than we should. Our thinking is squarely against our Lord and His Truth.
Our hearts must be open unto our Lord and we must ask, seek and knock upon His heart and keep doing so. This is His will, and even if this seems unusual, it is none the less still true.
We must begin to see beyond our physical realm. We must begin to see and hear our Lord in a new way. “Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18,19
When a kernel of wheat is planted, it springs forth from the earth and looks nothing like a kernel of wheat. What we are to become in our Lord is new, different, and alive in His Spirit.
I Corinthians 2:9~16
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”
The mind of Christ is open for us to receive, to drink in and to abide within. This is our responsibility, our reasonable response to His grace and mercy. His ever beckoning call is for us to ascend in our understanding of Him. Never becoming stagnant, but ever moving as He leads us into all Truth.
If we look at the world and our lives with our human lens in place we will not see what is hidden in plain view.
Our Lord is ever present, we can here and now enter His Kingdom and walk as His ambassadors, channels for His essence, Spirit and Truth. In this we will rise above the strife, politics, debate and confusion of this fallen world.
Today if you hear His voice, our Lord is clearly expressing “come out of her my people”.
Today we can walk as He walked and express our Fathers nature in Spirit and Truth.
John 4:23, 24
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
