The Fight 

 

Throughout the day the waters have been stirred, all with certain words or phrases being emphasized.

 

Authenticity;

Is to be sincere, true, real and alive all in and through Spirit and Truth. Authenticity speaks deeply into our souls, as we encounter the authentic expression of Christ we are moved, pierced and enlightened by the expression. There’s no substitute for authenticity and it only come from one source, Christ.

 

Obstacles;

We all are faced with walls or limits that inhibit our lives, some are there for our well being, yet others are there for increasing the Faith we walk by. Discernment is vital to understand which type of wall we are up against. Yet there are obstacles that are intended for our growth, and here its a matter of how deeply we desire what our Lord has set before us. Remember the events of Canaan, the land was subdued before Joshua, yet there were battles to be fought…

 

“and the violent take it by force”;

I’ve never really understood this verse but I’m sensing it’s poetic language to describe the inner hunger we are to have and to kindle the hunger and thirst for the release of mankind from bondage and decay. This once again all comes in and through God and empty vessels that desire to be filled by His Wine. 

 

The Fight;

So we must be found authentic in the eyes of God, and by Faith moving through any and all obstacles that are inhibitors to increasing the Faith we walk in, and from this like Joshua and Caleb talking the land that is set before us in the Name of Jesus Christ, and from this the release of the captives and His Kingdom established here as it is in the Heavens. 

 

Blessings

The Constant Battle

We must learn to hate that which wars against us.

Pride and independence yield the spirit of rebellion, rebellion is Adam’s mode of operation.

There is but one way for this spirit to break its release, and that is through an open heart before the Lord, the continual work of the cross, which leads us to submit to His Lordship.

This seductive, and destructive spirit of rebellion lies like a snake in the grass, and will not rear its head unless provoked, and then the fangs come out.

“The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?
“I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds. Jer. 17:9, 10

Paul understood this, and expressed his heart before the disciples for all to see, keep in mind this was written years after his encounter with the Lord.

but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind[Christ] and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members.
Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death?
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin.” Rom. 7:23~25

Paul’s walk in the Lord was one of constant submission, and humility before the Lord, we can do well to heed his example.

Let this Mind be in You

Allow this mind to be in you

Php 2:6 (6-8) which is also in Christ Jesus, who has always been and at present continues to subsist in that mode of being in which He gives outward expression of His essential nature, that of absolute deity, which expression comes from and is truly representative of His inner being, and who did not after weighing the facts, consider it a treasure to be clutched and retained at all hazards, this being on an equality with deity, but himself He emptied, himself He made void, having taken the outward expression of a bondslave, which expression comes from and is truly representative of His nature, entering into a new state of existence, that of mankind. And being found to be in outward guise as man, He stooped very low, having become obedient to the extent of death, even such a death as that upon a cross.

There is suffering due to our ignorance, and there is suffering due to our obedience. The latter is of Spirit and Truth, and leads to an emptiness, a state of deeper understanding of “not my will, but your will”. This is the pathway of separation, meekness, and woundedness, this is the work of the cross.

“And one shall say unto him: ‘What are these wounds between thy hands?’ Then he shall answer: ‘Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.’ Zec 13:6



This inward work of the cross is unpleasant for a season, yet in Truth and Love it yields a harvest that surpasses the unpleasant season. Our father Abraham yielded to the Lords call, he left his home, sojourned to a unknown land, offered his promised son on the altar, and through this was rewarded. His example is for us today.

“For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.” Heb. 11:10 

  
This discipline comes to us with the promise of yielding treasure beyond anything we can imagine, it is a matter of deep trust that we enter into this Covenant with the Lord, and from this we walk as He walked, yielded to the Father of our spirit.
“Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live?”Heb 12:9 

 
The mind of Christ is our true identity, our true source, and the means to all that our Father has in store for us. We are given the freedom of choice; He sets before us blessings and curses. It’s all a matter of the heart, and being subjected to our Fathers heart, this is the key to life.
“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. “You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. “You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. “You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
“Then it shall come about when the LORD your God brings you into the land which He swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you, great and splendid cities which you did not build, and houses full of all good things which you did not fill, and hewn cisterns which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant, and you eat and are satisfied, then watch yourself, that you do not forget the LORD who brought you from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. “You shall fear only the LORD your God; and you shall worship Him and swear by His name. “You shall not follow other gods, any of the gods of the peoples who surround you, for the LORD your God in the midst of you is a jealous God; otherwise the anger of the LORD your God will be kindled against you, and He will wipe you off the face of the earth.”
Deut. 6

Deuteronomy points to Zion, the land of promise, when we allow our hearts to be lifted up, we can see the promises of Israel fulfilled in Christ, and see His passion for Zion as our reward for obedience. Never mistake the value of obedience through grace, for it is by grace that we move and have our being.

“Now sin is the sting of death, and sin derives its power from the Law;

but God be thanked who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!

Therefore, my dear brethren, be firm, unmovable, busily occupied at all times in the Lord’s work, knowing that your toil is not fruitless in the Lord.” 1Co 15:56~58
