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!

True Faith

Faith that in the beginning is no bigger than a mustard seed, can and will flourish and prosper inwardly.
Eventually this Seed becomes the Tree of Life, inwardly.
Life is summed in three words, Faith, Hope, & Love.
Faith, Hope & Love, all of, and all in Christ.
For it is by His Faith we have the Hope of glory, and this is to live by His Nature, which is Love.

Two Mary’s 

Our Lord and His Body
I’m seeing how enriching it is to be connected to other saints, and allowing our Lord to work within us. This is where the Body comes together, at His feet.
It reminds me of the two unique Mary stories, Mary Magdalene, and Mary Lazarus’ sister.
Mary Magdalene is the lady who anointed Her Lords feet with oil, who did not care what others thought, she had a revelation of who she was, and who her Lord was. Her response is filled with intensity, passion, and abandonment, abandoning her human nature and seeking His Divine Nature. Her example is a clear one of worshiping in Spirit and Truth.

“Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her”Matthew 26:13

The other Mary represents the beauty of setting at our Lords feet, forsaking all other activity, to listen to Him, and He is always speaking.

“…Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”Luke 10:42b

 
The question is two fold; can we see like the first Mary as our human condition or nature?And be honest enough to desire a complete transformation. Allowing our Lord to create us in His image, nature. This is vital that we see this need.
The second question is; like the second Mary do we see our need to rest at His feet, listening to His Living Word. Allowing His Truth to establish us in His Love, which again is His Nature.

Today if we hear His voice we must learn from these two examples, and seek our Lords nature with intensity, passion and zeal.

Today is Ever Present

Jesus said;
“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” Mark 1:15

Today is always at hand

Jesus expressed the Kingdom was at hand 2000 years ago, and it at hand today. Our responsibility is to repent, see that our flesh nature is opposed to the Lord. (Rom.8:7)

To live in a state of constant repentance, or openness to Him. To believe the gospel and keep believing His Word, seeing that we only understand in part, and must keep pressing into Him as He is our “Way, Truth, and Life”.

Seeing His Kingdom 
It’s not to be seen as historical, though it is, and it’s not to be seen as futuristic, though it is. It’s to be seen as at hand.

When something is at hand, one can reach and obtain it. This is what our Lord is expressing, He and His Kingdom are here and now for us to partake of, to abide in, and to experience today.

The issue is, there are many who teach the gospel from a perspective that limits our understanding. We must come to see that the Living Word is active today. Our response to our Lord is to hear His voice, and repent, which is our duty.

Hebrews 3: 7~19

“Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says:

“Today, if you will hear His voice,
 Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
In the day of trial in the wilderness,
 Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me,
And saw My works forty years.
 Therefore I was angry with that generation,
And said, ‘They always go astray in their heart,
And they have not known My ways.’
 So I swore in My wrath,
‘They shall not enter My rest.’”

Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, while it is said:

“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses?  Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey?  So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.”

 

Blessing
