The Devine Love Story 

Divine Frustration and True Reconciliation  

The creation was and to some degree experiencing a Divinely designed frustration, all in True Hope. This frustration stems from the events of the garden and from Adam’s desire to be enraptured by his talent, gifts and beauty. 

 

Pride seduced him and had her way with him, this led to his voice to Eve and her response to the lust of her heart, and we all know how this story plays out.

 

Today what was fallen, what was of the dust and entrapped in vanity is being redeemed and restored in and through the workmanship of our True Lovers hands. 

 

Christ Jesus is wooing His Bride, washing her through His Living Water, nourishing her with His Living Bread, and infusing Her with His Blood, all to establish her in Spirit and Truth as His expression here on earth, and in this the Kingdom overtakes the kingdoms of this age, all in and through her King and His Nature.

 

This Divine Love Story is what flows from the heart of our Lord, it’s the most vibrant earth shattering Love story of all time. His ever beckoning call to our souls is clear and true…

 

“come to Me…”and you will find your rest, Peace, and security in My abundant and ever present Love. Love will establish your identity and purpose in Life.

 

Blessings

Atonement 

Atonement…at One in Him

 
This evening at sunset marks a High Day in the old covenant, and shadows the workmanship of His hands within His students, disciples and fellow sojourners in Spirit and Truth. 

 
Atonement depicts our Lords heart for us to be reconciled unto and into Him, and He alone can accomplish this mystical and magnificent transition, one of His Life coming forth in our earthly vessels.

 
The physical nature of this Day was expressed in fasting, the denial of self, this display is a shadow of the inward work of His hands, the overwhelming presence of His Love creating within us a new Nature, His.

 
Blessings to the sojourners who are supple in His hands like moist clay on the Potters wheel, spinning us into a vessel of honor, and this honor is to carry His Nature, and to extol His Name with every ounce and fiber of our being.

 
Blessings

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.

Have Nothing to do with the Unclean…

Life is all about our choices

One cannot serve two kings, or two kingdoms. We cannot live a dual citizenship.

When we look at the Greek term that is translated church it is Ekklesia “called out”. We are called out of the low earthly realm, and into His Kingdom. This calling out is to see Life from a whole new perspective, our Lords, which is all possible as we enter into Him, walking in His Faith.

Today we see the great mixture,  His people that carry His Name. Yet like Israel of old, they are trapped in bondage to a spiritual Pharaoh, and his realm of authority, abuse, tyranny, and evil.
There is a way to be set free from this bondage, and it requires of us to seek our Lord with our whole hearts. This requires of us to be open to hear His Living Word.
Today if we hear His voice, it is quite clear.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities” Revelation 18:4, 5

We must have our hearts open in submission unto our Lord, seeking Him and His perfect Kingdom with intensity and zeal. To know and and to be known in Him.

His Love is stronger than death, His jealousy for us is white hot, and His complete ransom for us is without question.

Today we must see His crystal clear calling, and like Abram follow our Lords desire.

“The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.” Genesis 12:1

Abram left Ur, his homelands, and sojourned to see and know His Lord. His walk is one for each of us to learn from, for Abram walked by Faith, the Faith of Christ. The symbolic language of leaving Ur, is indicating we must leave the ways of our fallen nature, and the ways of this world. We must see that our Lord came to express a new way of Life, and didn’t come to make this worlds system better. His Kingdom is not of ways of man, never was, and never will be. We must allow Him to wash the mud out of our eyes, to see the difference.

The Jews of old made this mistake, thinking our Lord came to set things right with the Roman tyranny and to set up a earthly kingdom. This of course was false then, and it is false today.

Paul’d admonition is one for us to adhere to;

Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Ephesians 5:10, 11 

The ways of this age, and mankind’s nature are unclean in our Lords eyes. He is calling us out of this way of existence, and into Him, and His Kingdom.

“Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord.” Ephesians 5:14~16

The two are separate we must choose one or the other. Our default position is outside of His Kingdom, this requires us to be like Abram and to move, to sojourn seeking our true homeland.

Our Lords ever beckoning call to “come to Me” or to “come up here” is our calling out of our nature, ways and living, and to enter in His grace and truth, a new way of living, this is found in and through His very Life.

To follow our Lord in His calling, is to become the people He so deeply desires us to be, His in Spirit and Truth.

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.”
Proverbs 3:5~8

The Pure Pursuit

True Treasure is Before Us

This morning our Lord has been emphasizing the need of our pursuit of Him.  Emphasizing that there is always more, more of Him, His nature and His attributes.

We must taste and see of His goodness, faithfulness, and the Truth of His Love.

What He brought to my heart was the Shulamite, and how she tasted the kings love, knew of his ways and once she had experienced this, she was wrecked by him and his love. She then sought, asked and found him. And as she did she was completely surrendered, open, and responsive to his love.

This is but a shadow of how we are to experience the width, depth, highests and breadths of His Love. Remembering Love is His Nature, so to know Love is to know Christ and Him crucified. Paul’s prayer is to be our prayer. We must come to know our Lord, and with each day experiencing His beauty unfolding like a banquet table before us.

“That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:16~19

Our Lord desires to have our hearts burning for Him, He is creating within us this passion, desire, and intensity to ask, seek and knock on the door of His heart, and to keep doing so. To taste and keep tasting the beauty of His presence, and the depths of His Love.

This is true living, walking into Him and His Love each and every day, learning to know Him, and to learn His ways, eating and drinking in Spirit and Truth. This is the transformation that moves us from darkness into His Light. The old order dying, and the Newness of His Life being experienced within us.

Everything we could ever possibly need pertaining to Life is open before us. It is in His Faith that we explore this Treasure, and dine at the table He sets before each of us. In this we learn to trust in our Lord, His true Love develops this beautiful condition of trust. We learn to trust when we know His True Love.

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5, 6

Peter saw this, and experienced this radical transformation in his life. Peter moved from speaking to knowing, his life is one for us to learn from. Peter became overwhelmed by the Nature of our Lord.

2 Peter 1:3~8

“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

May we open our hearts before our Lord, seeking Him and His perfect Nature to overtake our flawed nature. To become in Spirit and Truth a New Creation in Christ.

Seeing is Believing 

Can you see Him?

We all tend to overlook the elephant in the room. While seeking our Lord, looking to the heavens as if He is distant. Or seeking His expression as if He is unseen. Or wondering where He is as the world around us crumbles.
He is in plain view, here and now, alive and well within His multi-membered body. And is clearly speaking in regard to the conditions we see about us.
He walked this earth some 2000 years ago, and told us how He would return, not in the image they were accustomed to, or in a way that they expected at that time, but He clearly expressed His return was eminent.

 
“Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”  Acts 1:11
He left in Spirit and Truth, and on the day of Pentecost returned in like manner, in Spirit and Truth. His return then and today is the very same, He walks this earth in His body, expressing His Living Word, all in Spirit and Truth.

Today to see Him in His body we only need eyes of Faith, Faith that is His nature and His very Life.
As we learn to walk in His Faith, we are opened unto His sight. Not with our eyes, but His.
As we awaken to His presence we are learning to follow through with what Paul stated:

“See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God” Ephesians 5:15~21

So today and tomorrow are the same He is here, in warmth, heart, and in Love. Reach out to Him, embrace Him, and He will lead, all He asks of us is to walk in His Faith, and believe and keep believing in His Living Word.

 

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. John 17:3

Move out to Move In

His Ways are Much Higher

This morning our Lord is opening my heart up to see beyond what I’ve previously understood.
 
I’ll say that our calling in much more important than we currently see or understand, and it is incumbent upon us to seek and keep seeking our Lords heart.
 
Whatever enlightenment we have, is only so we can have a greater enlightenment today.
 
We must be open to our Lords desire to show us more and more of Him.
 
This is Isaiah 43:18, 19, and He asks us…will you be aware of it???
 
He pierced my heart this morning with two things.

  • The foolishness of the political realm, and the attention I was giving it.
 
  • The vital, critical and significant purpose of Him and my need to have my heart set in this realm.
 
He asked me, “when did you see me teach the disciples to be involved with Caesar?”

Our calling is an ever present calling of moving out of our limited, fallen, and rebellious nature. And moving into His unlimited, righteous, and subservient Nature.

Paul expressed this, and there is so much to see here, remembering we are to ask and keep asking, seek and keep seeking our Lord and His fullness.


Ephesians 1:19~23
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
And what the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set at his own right hand in the heavenly,
Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
And hath put all under his feet, and gave him the head over all  to the church,
Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

This is a new day….
