The Letter Kills, only the Spirit gives Life

Death and Pride are the same Ride
Death is ministered constantly, the world is seething with death, what is self proclaimed love, is death. Death is the expression of man, it’s his nature.
Death is never satisfied, death is a hunger a gluttony that feasts upon the soul of man. Death seeks its expression among the literal, the letter, living to propagate itself.
We are so accustomed to death, it’s so natural.

Only Love overcomes death, and what is unique is, we must die to live. This shows the deep entrenchment death has, or is, in Adam’s seed.

I like this observation “It is only when we are purified we will live again”
The Fire of His Love is so pure, so powerful, that we in His grace die, to Live. To live in and through His Love. For only His Love is stronger than death. It is only in the Spirit that we find Life.

Life and Love are synonymous, for they are only found in the Spirit of Christ.
Today we can be reaching out, touching the Eternal, laying claim to our citizenship, not if this age, but in the ageless expression of our Father.

May our praise proclaim His glory, and may our praise be unto our Lord, and the beauty of His Nature which is Love.

For it is only His Spirit that is Life.
Blessings

Faith and Grace 

 Faith is a Seed
This life is to prepare our transition into a realm of Spirit. It’s given to each of us a measure of Faith. This is our ‘Seed’ to be developed and matured in Christ.
Today we must discern the meaning of Life, to do so requires our death. Death to our human based reasoning, and submitting unto the One who was sent to show us the Way, the Truth and the Life.

This is all in His grace, for of ourselves we are indeed helpless. Yet in Him, through His Faith we can become exactly what He desires to see in us, His Life.
This season we are entering proclaims a phrase that has deep meaning.

 

“Unto us a child is born,

Unto us a Son is given;

And the government will be upon His shoulder.” Isaiah 9:6

 

His Seed resides within us, it’s how this Seed is nurtured in Faith that brings forth the Son.
May we have a walk that like our father Abraham had, moving from our way of Life into our Lords way of Life.

 

“By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going.
 By faith he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, fellow heirs of the same promise; for he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.  Hebrews 11:8~10

Faith leads us into the Spirit of Christ, and in His Grace matures Faith within us, bringing us into an ever deepening relationship in Him.

This relationship is open before us today, we must see the beauty of this, embracing Him with open hearts allowing His will to be accomplished within us.

Openness is another term for humility, and humility is the key to Life.

“But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.” James 4:6

Our True Hunger 

We are Born in Sin, and fed a Lie… 

We all have been fed a lie, and from this we all have weaknesses. All weakness is a result of a lie. Our weaknesses can be seen as facts that have become our reality. Facts are not Truth, facts are based upon perception, facts are filled with lies. Facts frame our human walk. All of us are infected by lies, humanity is born under and into a world that lives in deception.

Lies only have power when we believe them to be true, this is only the case in an area our lives where Truth via grace hasn’t brought healing.

Jesus came to this earth to reveal Truth, it is only in Truth that we can begin to see the lies we have eaten and how they impact our life. In order to be set free from the lies, we must hunger for Truth. His ministry can be summed up in His statement “I am the way, the truth and the Life.”

Truth is our Healing Balm

Healing allows for Truth to replace lies, misunderstandings, or weakness. Weakness promote fears, and fears perpetuate separation, separation from Truth.

We must learn to embrace Truth to be set free from the entrapment of lies, this is a process, but one with beautiful results, healing to our hearts and minds is only found in Truth.
As we walk in Truth we are no longer afraid of the dark, the lie, it has no power to influence us. This is true healing to know Truth, which is another term for Christ and in His grace walk in His Truth.
As we sojourn in this walk we will be confronted by deep seated lies.Where we find this playing out in our lives. His Faith must address this, for it is His will to heal, to transform our hearts. Yet we must seek His Faith to walk deeper into His Truth, from this we experience deeper healing and greater transformation in our lives, all from His grace.

Lies are inescapable in our humanity, we were born under them, born into a world founded in lies, lies are so abundant, so deep seated that we become comfortable with them. The key is for our hearts to be open to or Lord and His voice. In this allowing Him to expose the lies we still are embracing, which is an area of our life that is wounded by a lie.

It is the nudging of His Truth that exposes the wound. No longer will a bandage suffice, it must be addressed by the Light, Oil, Wine of His Nature. This is the only true remedy. It isn’t a pleasant process, yet it yields the fruit of joy and peace, all in His strength.
All of this of course to His glory, and for the ability to have humility with others.

 

When we see sin as it is, sin is sin, its the nature we are born in. The healing for sin is being given the humility to seek His grace, and the power of grace is to allow His presence, His Love to heal, to restore us in His image, and likeness, His very Nature.

 
We must be hungry for His Truth, which is His righteousness, and from this His Love heals, all by and in His beautiful Nature.

This is His perfect will for all of humanity.

First Light…

The woman of the night, and her Light
In her weeping she was seeking the one who had touched her unlike any other, He had touched her heart. It was His words,His presence His way, they were of Life.

Yet her heart was torn on that eventful morn, alone she walked to where He had laid.

The tomb was open and empty, death had died, Life arrived.

She heard a voice and turned, at first glance she did not see it was He. When He spoke she awoke, Master, Teacher burst from her heart. Her Love now lives.
His response was simple and so profound, “go and tell…” 

 

It was a forgiven woman of the night,that first saw the Risen Light.

“This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” John 17:3

Her voice resonates today in those like her, that walk from night into His Light.

Will He find it?

True Faith is Alive, Active, and Life-giving

In the christian world faith is a term that is used yet often misunderstood. Many express they have faith, or that when events are difficult its often said “have faith”, faith is often seen like a spare tire, you only need it when something went flat in your life.

Jesus made a statement, and it for us to understand what He meant.

“And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
  I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” Luke 18:7,8

What Jesus was eluding to what Faith is, when we see what Faith is, we also see what it isn’t.

His first question is regarding those that are seeking Him, and His righteousness day and night. In other words hungering and thirsting for His Kingdom, and His Nature, which is filled with Light and Truth. It is in His Faith they are doing so, for without His Faith we are spinning our wheels.

What we see in the next sentence is another question, will He find Faith. To understand this we must see that our Lord is looking for His Faith, which is a gift by His grace. His Faith is vastly different than our human based faith. We don’t work Faith up, and it’s not something we use like a spare tire, it is absolutely vital to our walk into Him, for without His Faith, we are dead.  “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” James 2:26

Faith that is alive, must come from a Life source, and this is from our Lords grace, it is an aspect of His Nature. We receive His Faith as we live and move into His Lordship.

Faith gives us eyes to see beyond this realm. Faith is the root of Trust,  that works inwardly, it is by His Faith that we yield ourselves more fully to His will. It is by Faith that we move, and have our being in Him.

Faith is our foundation

Faith is the source to Life. It is only by His Faith, that His Living Word becomes alive within us. It is by His Faith that we find our citizenship outside of this earthly realm. “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;” Philippians 3:20

It is by His Faith we turn our backs upon the ways of this world, and walk into His Nature. It is by His Faith we, like our father Abraham move from the homeland of our carnal thinking, into His realm of Life in Spirit and Truth. It is by His Faith, we embrace the work of our cross, and enduring all, Trusting Him who is Faithful and True with joy and hope.The Living Hope of His Life being brought forth in our life.

Living Faith works His nature into us, this is what is often misunderstood by many when they read, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:” Genesis 1:26

This is a prophetic Word, one that only becomes true in His Faith. By our natural birth we are not created in His image or after His likeness, this is only possible as we in Faith allow our Lord to create us anew. This is Faith and works together, His Life bringing us into a realm of Spirit and Truth, and our sharing this with others.

We begin to experience being born from above, becoming a New Creation in His image, and likeness. Bone of His bone, flesh of His flesh. This is the beauty of His calling, to become like He is in Spirit and Truth.

So when Jesus asked shall he find faith on the earth?” He was pondering will He find those who are given unto Him, and living in and through His Spirit, all by His Faith.

 

“And without faith it is impossible to please, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
By faith Noah, being warned  about things not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his household, by which he condemned the world, and became an heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going.
By faith he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, fellow heirs of the same promise;
for he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.” Hebrews 11:6~10 

Our walk is only in His Faith, and in this walk, our desire is regardless of our condition, or situation to be pleasing unto Him.

 

“Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord— for we walk by faith, not by sight— we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord. Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.” 2 Corinthians 5:6~10 

May we see Him and find our being, our very life found in His Faith.

What the World Needs Now…

The whole creation is eagerly awaiting His sons to come forward in His Nature.

 

This is the only item in this world that is sorely lacking, is the Nature of our Father.
Man can never muster the qualities needed, regardless of his desire, man is incapable, woefully unqualified.
Today we walk on the cusp of the biggest breakthrough in the history of man. It is close, and each day we press into Him, eating and drinking of His flesh and blood, experiencing the transference of His Love.
It is our Fathers great desire to give us His Kingdom, yet we must desire this above all else. We must in His grace have are hearts set upon His will, to become exactly what He has planned for us to become, Holy. This is only possible in and through the Life of Christ coming forth in our lives. He has set the table before us, we must reach out to partake of His Feast.

Our brother Paul’s prayer is clearly our need.

 

 

 “the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.” Ephesians 1:18~22

We must have our hearts open unto our Lord, seeking Him and His righteousness to over take our mixture. The Day has come that the mixture is no longer enough. He is seeking hearts that are given unto Him, that He might inhabit. This is exactly what the prophet Jeremiah saw as vital.

“For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”
Jeremiah 57:15

Today we are being called out of this age, and our corrupt nature, and called into out Lords very heart. To walk into His Spirit and to partake of His very Nature, and then to express this as He leads.

What does the world need now more than ever? His Nature, Love. Of all there is, none is greater than Love. For Love is God, and God is Love.

May we have ears to hear what the Spirit is expressing to the Body of Christ.

Hope is Born in Trust 

“For his anger a moment; in his favour life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy in the morning.”

Psalms 30:5

This verse must be seen in the Spirit, and not our literal perspective, it speaks of a realm beyond our human reasoning, one of Spirit and Truth.

 

We are born into this world in darkness, and must awaken to Life

Our Lord didn’t come to this earth to explain man’s world, He came to reveal Life, Truth and Love from our Fathers world. We must be open in our hearts to learn His Way.

Until we walk in the wilderness seeing our strength, nature and will stripped bare, we will still wander. We must become like Sarah, barren, past any human hope of bringing forth the child of promise.
Only from the desert can True Life spring forth.

Life in Spirit and Truth is learning from the opposites.

Death proceeds Life, suffering and loss proceed joy and peace. The wilderness is where we find our way, our place within His Body, not in the company of others.

It’s not the mature who find Him, it’s the childlike, the innocent.

It’s not through clinging to this life, but from loosing this life that we find Life.

His ways are higher than ours, in order to see we must see that we don’t see. Blindness is the beginning of Vision.

The Way that leads to Life is absolutely contrary to our way of thinking. His Way wars against our nature. It behooves us to understand this principle, allowing it to sink deeply into our hearts.

So how is Hope born? 

It is simply leaning into our Lords understanding, learning to trust Him completely,in His grace submitting to His Lordship and walking with Him as He opens the eyes of our hearts to see Life in Spirit and Truth.

In this walk His Faith becomes our strength, in this we find true joy, and we learn to praise Him in all aspects of life. We find in Him Life and Life in abundance.

Paul expressed this with depth and passion;

 

“But what things were gain to me, those I counted as loss for Christ.

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and count them but dung, that I may win Christ

and be found in Him, not having mine own righteousness which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith,

that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death,

that if by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

It is not as though I had already attained it, nor were already perfect; but I follow after, that I may apprehend that for which Christ Jesus also apprehended me.”

Philippians 3:7~12
