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.

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.

Hope is Born in Trust 

“For his anger a moment; in his favour life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy in the morning.”

Psalms 30:5

This verse must be seen in the Spirit, and not our literal perspective, it speaks of a realm beyond our human reasoning, one of Spirit and Truth.

 

We are born into this world in darkness, and must awaken to Life

Our Lord didn’t come to this earth to explain man’s world, He came to reveal Life, Truth and Love from our Fathers world. We must be open in our hearts to learn His Way.

Until we walk in the wilderness seeing our strength, nature and will stripped bare, we will still wander. We must become like Sarah, barren, past any human hope of bringing forth the child of promise.
Only from the desert can True Life spring forth.

Life in Spirit and Truth is learning from the opposites.

Death proceeds Life, suffering and loss proceed joy and peace. The wilderness is where we find our way, our place within His Body, not in the company of others.

It’s not the mature who find Him, it’s the childlike, the innocent.

It’s not through clinging to this life, but from loosing this life that we find Life.

His ways are higher than ours, in order to see we must see that we don’t see. Blindness is the beginning of Vision.

The Way that leads to Life is absolutely contrary to our way of thinking. His Way wars against our nature. It behooves us to understand this principle, allowing it to sink deeply into our hearts.

So how is Hope born? 

It is simply leaning into our Lords understanding, learning to trust Him completely,in His grace submitting to His Lordship and walking with Him as He opens the eyes of our hearts to see Life in Spirit and Truth.

In this walk His Faith becomes our strength, in this we find true joy, and we learn to praise Him in all aspects of life. We find in Him Life and Life in abundance.

Paul expressed this with depth and passion;

 

“But what things were gain to me, those I counted as loss for Christ.

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and count them but dung, that I may win Christ

and be found in Him, not having mine own righteousness which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith,

that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death,

that if by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

It is not as though I had already attained it, nor were already perfect; but I follow after, that I may apprehend that for which Christ Jesus also apprehended me.”

Philippians 3:7~12

“For I the Lord, I change not”

The Lion and His Tribe

The ending of the what is called the Old Testament brings us to Malachi, this prophecy is and will be ongoing. It is vital for us to allow our Lord to open our hearts, so that we may hear His voice.

“Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he,like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:

And he shall sit a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.”
Malachi 3:1~3

 

The Messenger spoken of is the work of the Holy Spirit, opening our hearts to the Living Word.

We are living in a very dynamic day; our hearts must be open to hearing the Word. His Faith increases in us, as we hear The Word.

May our hearts be strengthened in His faith. We must become what currently we are not, pure, holy, and channels for our Lord to move through. The day of mixture will not stand, we are coming into a new day.

We have heard this Word before, yet it is vital to our walk to hear and keep hearing. The messenger mentioned in Malachi’s prophetic Word is here. The Living Word is accomplishing our Fathers will within the body.

 
“And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.” Leviticus 20:26

Our Lord is cleansing His temple, this is beyond what we have experienced thus far, He is making us truly a new creation, the day of mixture is to be replaced by a day of purity. This is so beyond our human reasoning, or comprehension. Our Lord will have His way with us. His grace is indeed a refining fire.

 

 

“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, rivers in the desert.” ~ Isaiah 43:18, 19

 
This new thing our Lord is doing is the establishment of a people that will be spiritual Judah. There are prophecies concerning this, that heretofore are unfulfilled, this is about to change.

As we see in Malachi this refining fire produces what our Father is looking for, what He has always had in mind, a people that are truly His, found not of Adam, but in Christ. Our Father Loves the Son, for us to abide in our Fathers Love, we must abide in His Son, Christ Jesus. This is the only unto or into Life, life that is Holy as He is Holy. This is our Fathers perfect will.

“Then shall the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, as in the former years” ~ Malachi 3:4

There are three prophecies that relate to the above verse, and our Lord is bringing them to fruition in this new day, all through His Son coming forward within us. This is the intent of His Lordship, to create in us His very nature, which is Love.
   

  •     “Judah, thou whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.

     Judah a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?

    The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him the gathering of the people.

    Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:

    His eyes red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.” Genesis 49:8~12

 

  • “… but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.” Hosea 11;12b
  • “For evident that our Lord sprang out of Judah; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.” Hebrews 7:14

Our Lord is bringing about a spiritual tribe, a people that are His in Spirit and Truth, this is all through His grace, and once again we see the meaning of Paul’s statement;
“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of good pleasure.” ~ Philippians 2:13

 

The Apostle John was able to see into the heart of our Lord, and in mystical language provide us with valuable insight into our Lords heart.

 

“And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.

And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” Revelation 5: 5~10

The Lion of the tribe of Judah is bringing about His perfect will. We must see this as happening now, and turn with intensity in our hearts to our Lord.

Seeking and knowing Him, and not resisting His perfect will for us. Our limited submission to our Lord is the only blockage to His perfect Love being fully expressed within and through us.

We must see His fervent desire for establishing the spiritual tribe, all of which is found in His nature, and expressed in Spirit and Truth.

“Behold, I come quickly: blessed he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.” Revelation 22:7

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….

The Higher Way

Our Lord didn’t come to explain this world, but to reveal our Fathers world.

In this He reveals that our nature and His are in direct conflict, and in order to comply with our Fathers world we need a blood transfusion. A new DNA, one that is pure, humble, and founded in Love.
When He spoke from the Mountain, He was revealing a higher life form, His. And how we are able to enter it, this requires a birth from above. One that has nothing to to with gender, race, or humanity, but one that comes through our Fathers will.
In this we begin to awaken to His Way.

Matthew 5:3~9

Blessed the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Regardless of what we may think, the above verses are impossible for us to fulfill, and they require us to see our nature, and understand that it is, and always will be in rebellion to His Way, Truth and Life.

Our only hope is in death, death to our will, our perceptions, and our religious nature. This requires us to submit unto Him, and learn to live in and through His grace, which is His presence.

Today there is an ever heightening need for His nature to be expressed here in this earth. All in and though His grace, and His grace is more than sufficient for our vast needs. Our Lord provides us the ability to transcend our nature, and to be overcome by His Nature. From this we are empowered to live and express the above verses, all in His divine power, and to His glory.

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
