His Word is Clear

Moses received precise instructions from God concerning the details for the Tabernacle, God communicated clearly how to construct the dwelling where He would meet Israel.

There were precise instructions for moving the Ark of the Covenant, David in his zeal overlooked this, and it resulted in the death of Uzzah. Once again details are important.

Jesus gave precise instructions, the wedding feast, healing the blind, the woman caught in adultery, the meeting place for the Passover meal, and where the faithful were to tarry prior to Pentecost are all expressing details, ones to be carried out as He intended.

Today it’s the same, remember how our Lord spoke:

“For I am the Lord, I change not…” Malachi 3:6

What our Lord is accomplishing within His disciples is of greater magnitude than a physical Tabernacle, more precious than the Ark of the Covenant, or changing water to wine.

He is redeeming what was defiled, resurrecting what was dead, reconciling what was fully opposed to Him. He is creating within His disciples the greatest feat of His entire creation, sons in His image, likeness and nature.

We must have our souls humbled before our Lord in a deeper understanding of what is before us, we must see what we don’t see, and submit more fully to the workmanship of His hands.

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”

This Love is not what we think, it is the very Nature of God, His character, quality, purity, and righteousness.

Yes Love is the greatest, because Love is the very essence of God, and this is exactly what we are to become in Him.

Humility…

Pondering earlier this morning the example of Abraham and His diversions from our Lords will, seeing these examples, and how pride robs us of patience, trust, and obedience.

 

From this seeing there is much that gets past us, we miss the subtle yet important whispers of our Lords voice, or even if we hear we often lack in the response.

 

 

Mistakes are an inescapable part of our humanity, humility is one of our greatest needs.

 

This accentuates the beauty of staying in the moment, in His presence, and understanding His grace is sufficient for whatever we are facing.

 

 

 

Be it walking in obedience or disobedience, for whichever way we walk, grace is what we need to move into His will.

If we are walking in obedience then grace provides our ability to fulfill this event.

If in disobedience grace provides us the ability to repent, to stop, or return to the narrow path.

 

Humility can never be overstated, or overvalued, for it is key to our walk into our Fathers heart and mind.

The Key to Life…

There is a door that must open, and remain, open.

Humility is the constant key that opens our heart unto our Father.

 

His Grace enables Faith. His Faith enables our vision to see in many aspects, of this is to see Him, and to see ourselves from His perspective, which is True, and expressed in Love.

 

As we awaken to His Life we are more fully cleansed by His Word, which is His will or plans for us. He watches over us and His will to accomplish this, all in and through His Grace.

 

Our response is to abide, cleave, believe, and live in His realm of Life, here we find how to move, by His Grace, and know our being which is Christ.

He is the Alpha and the Omega of this. The supply and the ability, the hunger and the meal, the thirst and the water to quench or thirst.

 

May we respond to this Grace with Zeal!

Remembering Home…

The prodigal son awakens to his condition and remembers his fathers home, and this memory sustained him on his sojourn home.

Upon returning his heart was overwhelmed in the way he was received by his father.

There are many aspects of the Luke 15 story that are remarkable, what is meeting my heart this morning is his remembrance of home, and his desire to return to his father.

I see passion, brokenness, and humility in the son. And I see mercy, grace and love in the father.

Love conquers all that is apart from Love

“But I have this complaint against you. You don’t love me or each other as you did at first!” Revelation 2:4 NLT

Returning Home is remembering the Love we knew before time…

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

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

Rise

Today is a New Day


Flesh and blood cannot see, nor enter the Kingdom of our Lord. We are born, deaf, dumb and blind, we are spiritual lepers.


What must die is our carnal mind, and the associated realms of seeing and expressing our thoughts of Christ and His Kingdom. We must have a fresh revelation, a new understanding.


We must be born again and again, a continuous cycle of coming and going. Leaving our current circumstances and moving higher in our lives in Christ. 


We are not what we think, this is vital to process! Our thinking is without question our greatest handicap, disability and hindrance. We are inclined to think of ourselves more highly than we should. Our thinking is squarely against our Lord and His Truth. 


Our hearts must be open unto our Lord and we must ask, seek and knock upon His heart and keep doing so. This is His will, and even if this seems unusual, it is none the less still true.


We must begin to see beyond our physical realm. We must begin to see and hear our Lord in a new way. “Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.


Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18,19


When a kernel of wheat is planted, it springs forth from the earth and looks nothing like a kernel of wheat. What we are to become in our Lord is new, different, and alive in His Spirit.


I Corinthians 2:9~16


“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.


But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.


But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”


The mind of Christ is open for us to receive, to drink in and to abide within. This is our responsibility, our reasonable response to His grace and mercy. His ever beckoning call is for us to ascend in our understanding of Him. Never becoming stagnant, but ever moving as He leads us into all Truth. 


If we look at the world and our lives with our human lens in place we will not see what is hidden in plain view.

 

 Our Lord is ever present, we can here and now enter His Kingdom and walk as His ambassadors, channels for His essence, Spirit and Truth. In this we will rise above the strife, politics, debate and confusion of this fallen world.


Today if you hear His voice, our Lord is clearly expressing “come out of her my people”.


Today we can walk as He walked and express our Fathers nature in Spirit and Truth.


John 4:23, 24

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 a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
