Fear Cast Out…

Fear & Love 

From the foundation fear has been mans response to God, Adam & Eve were fearful and strived to cover themselves rather than be honest and open with the state of affairs. This theme has played out over the course of mans history. Fear is a powerful force that easily moves mans heart. Fear of God, death, and the endless list of “what if…”. Fear fills merchants pockets, pews, and offering plates.

 
Enter Jesus 

 

Among the constant themes he expressed was “have no fear”, “fear not” with various circumstances to emphasize this point, his expression exuded Trust, Faith and Love. Pointing to a realm of Life above this earthly realm, and a Way to walk through this world…in his Faith.

 

Faith by Grace enables Trust to begin to take root, to become established in Spirit and Truth within our hearts. 

 

Truth is the Light that shines within the walls of our heart to express our Fathers deep Love. 

 

Love becomes our Life force, our identity, our expression and there is no fear in Love, only adoration, submission and deep joy! For in Love fear is cast out, and Love washes over and over us like waves lapping on the sea shore, a constant expression of security and serenity that surrounds and fills us. 

 

Of Faith, Hope and Love, Loves is the greatest, for Love is eternal, unending and completely overwhelming, overwhelming all that is, so all that is, will be found in Love. 


 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

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
