The ‘Snake Bite’ and The Antidote

We all have the venom….

Scripture states that this age is under a foul and rebellious spiritual influence, and it only takes a causal observation to see the fruit of this deception.
Of this deception mans religious mindset is formed, this is displayed in various ways, all of which are devisive, religiosity is indeed devilish, we all are snake bitten and the venom of distortion and half truths can be found in us all…so what is our hope??
It’s exactly as our brother Paul stated…what a wretched man I am…and the remaining portion is our hope…
“Thanks be to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord!”
Yes it’s the workmanship of His hands that transitions us from death (our carnal snake bitten thinking) into His Life, Light and Love.
This is what Grace is, the workmanship of His hands inwardly, and His Mind becoming our thoughts.
It’s only as His mind becomes our plumb line, our nature that we begin the ascent out of the ‘snake pit’ of religiosity into the clear clean Living Water of the Spirit of Christ. As our brother Paul also stated…
“allow this Mind to be in you that was in Christ Jesus” this Mind is the Mind of our Father.
Blessings in Christ!

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….

Unlimited 

Life in Abundance 

We are inherently limited in our ability to see what is set before us. We have been told that this life is framed by certain restrictions or limitations regarding our walk into our Lord.

This is a lie, and it’s time for us to enter into our Lord with the same zeal, the same openness, the same passion that He has for us. This is without question our greatest need at this hour. We must allow our Lord to speak to us, anointing our hearts and our hearing so we can be set free from what inhibits our walk, this is none other than our nature. This is why we have been given this command.
 

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:  And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might” Deuteronomy 6:4, 5

What we are lacking is moving into the intent of this Word. Our nature is opposed to this, and regardless of how we think, it is true.

What we need is a new revelation, a new heart, one that is fully open to our Lord. One that is supple in His hands, so that He can move in and through us as He so deeply desires to do.

Whatever we’ve seen, understood or experienced in our walk must be considered as preparation for a new Day.

Paul expressed this elequently:

 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. 

Philippians 3:10, 11

The greatest love we can express to our Lord is to follow in His footsteps, being and becoming conformed unto His death. Allowing Him to overcome our nature with His nature. This is our reasonable response to His love. No longer conformed to the world of Adam, and it’s rebellious chaos. And entering His rest. This is what the Sabbath portrayes, ceasing from our ways, and entering His nature in Spirit and Truth.

Our Lord is unlimited in ability, power and authority. He is wide open in His expression, inviting us to move into Him with our whole heart. Do not think this is only a future event, or allow any thinking to limit Him. For when we do, we effectively close the door to His ability to move in us.

This is all a matter of walking in His Faith.

“Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest” John 4:35

The same Lord that instantly changed water to wine, healed the sick, and opened the eyes of the blind is active within His body today. We must move into His unlimited Nature and allow Him in His grace to conform us in His likeness and image.

“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 Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.”

John 4:23~25

Birthing, The Narrow Passageway 

The Narrow Way

Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again/above he cannot see the kingdom of God.” ~ John 3:3

We all need to be born again, and again from above, it’s a cycle of Life that brings us higher, that enables us to see more clearly, and to Love more purely.

This birthing process is one that in the womb of our Mother Jerusalem from above” she will see us through, for she is experienced, and knows exactly how to bring her sons forth.
Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands
~ Psalm 119:90

What must transpire is the death to what is against us from our natural birth via the first Adam. This false information must be subdued; this is process, or cycle. Nature over and over emphasizes the cycle being born again, we plant seed to produce a crop, and then use that seed to produce yet another crop.    …for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God. ~ 1 Peter 1:23

Psalm 110
1  A Psalm of David. The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at My right hand Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”

2  The LORD will stretch forth Your strong scepter from Zion, saying, “Rule in the midst of Your enemies.”

3  Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power; In holy array, from the womb of the dawn, Your youth are to You as the dew.

We must remain within the womb of Zion to be brought forth, it’s here we find this life cycle developed within us, we experience the travail, yet just as a mother looks past the discomfort in hope of bringing her child forth, we must do likewise, trusting our Mother.

Isaiah 66

7  “Before she travailed, she brought forth; Before her pain came, she gave birth to a boy.

8  “Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Can a land be born in one day? Can a nation be brought forth all at once? As soon as Zion travailed, she also brought forth her sons.

9  “Shall I bring to the point of birth and not give delivery?” says the LORD. “Or shall I who gives delivery shut the womb?” says your God.

10  “Be joyful with Jerusalem and rejoice for her, all you who love her; Be exceedingly glad with her, all you who mourn over her,

11  That you may nurse and be satisfied with her comforting breasts, That you may suck and be delighted with her bountiful bosom.”

12  For thus says the LORD, “Behold, I extend peace to her like a river, And the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream; And you will be nursed, you will be carried on the hip and fondled on the knees.

13  “As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; And you will be comforted in Jerusalem.”

There is great confusion among His children about this birthing process, and we must seek to have our hearts cleared of the misinformation for our formation as sons. We must “seek Truth, purse it earnestly”.

Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. ~ Matthew 7:14

The gates of Zion are the narrow way that leads to life. “The LORD loves the gates of Zion More than all the other dwelling places of Jacob.” Psalm 87:2

This birthing process is found in our submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, accept no substitutes.
“Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’  ~ Jesus
