“Born unto a Living Hope”

You are being born again unto a living hope.

Hope deferred can make the heart grow sick in weariness.

A longing fulfilled is to the heart a tree of life to the heart of the soul.

Being not weary in well doing because you will reap dividends previously unknown to you and untold benefits to the likes thereof unto your soul, even reaching into the soul of humanity.

Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of my faith and yours if you so allow Him to be, I can make such a statement in absolute truth and verity, backed by the Word of God and all the company of heaven.

Seeing the unseen, the just is to live by his faith and nothing shall be impossible to Him who believes His God.

This is about the revealing of Jesus Christ through which you are about to be revealed to this world. This “who” God wired you to be in this world environment wherein you are to live, move and have your being.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (1 Peter1:3 ESV)

In Christ, “you”, yes “you” are to be made alive in Christ. What are you waiting for friend? Have you not heard, have you not seen? To whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?

You have an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you. (1 Peter 1:4) If you are to make this tangible then you are to “walk” therein, you must be moving. Moving by faith in the Word of God is being as a book known and read of all men, those living Words.

The Word of faith is as near you as in your mouth. As you speak it and believe in your heart, in the resurrection power that raised Christ from the dead you save your own life by losing it unto Him, Jesus. You thus move what matters in life. It is then raised in newness.

You are not just assured a place in eternity but so much the more. You redeem the life in your physical body and thus redeem the time you have left in it, as the days are evil. He who loses his life shall find it and save it and he who seeks to hang on to it shall lose it. This Jesus taught clearly and plainly. So are you willing to take up your cross to follow Him and just let go of all that you have tried to drive, control and maintain, let alone the lives of other people you think you have a right to be right with? It is not all about you or your being right. It never was. If you believe it is all about you then you are deceived. You are then just doing that which is “right in your own eyes”. This is what creates the immense burden that rests upon humanity.

The blood of the Lamb, Jesus and His ultimate sacrifice for you at the cross and the word of your testimony for Him is what makes you an over-comer in this world. This and only this and nothing less. Jesus blood and His righteousness is where it is at. You are either “all in” with Him or you are not. There is no in in-between. Passionate or passive; which are you? Wake up please! Choose you this day whom you serve; God or self; which is to be friend?

By God’s power you are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (1 Peter 1:5)
Today is the last time, these are the last days. Be doers of the Word, not hearers only or you deceive yourselves. It is not to be next month, not next week or tomorrow or even an hour from now, but RIGHT NOW. Future consists of what you choose to create right now with your being and talent/know how God placed in you before you were formed in the womb. This fills the spaces in matter and equates into time. It is not a place or time you wait for to happen. This is spirituality in God’s divine plan and template. Be a good steward and take charge of God has entrusted to you will you?

“In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials. Yes, life is not easy and is not meant to be. Life is a process. It takes time, patience and endurance that is a building and painstaking process. It is work. Work can and should enjoyable, pleasing, fulfilling and rewarding. If it is not, then you are not likely living the story God wrote for you at least not yet. You must expend an investment of effort though. You are created in the express image of the one who created you. God worked for 6 days and then He rested in His creation to behold and enjoy fully the fruit of His labor. Should you expect to get by with less?

So that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:6-7)

You are to be obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. Are you redeeming the time God has gifted you? Is your life a gift offered to all other others; even to those you do not like? What shall the Master find you doing as He returns?

King Jesus is in the field where life is; that is where you will find Him. Are you in the field seeking him? Well now you know and there are no excuses. Just step up and step out. Don’t live for self any longer. Live “to love” that you might find life at its abundant fullness. Here’s your chance to have a turn-around! Today is your day!

“Secure in the Heart of the Gospel”

Are you living in true freedom, enveloped in an abundance of joy and absolutely “in love” with life? If not then do you desire such fullness that you would do anything to attain it? Then let me say that there is much hope indeed right in front of you!

“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, in order to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.”
(Galatians 4:4-8)

God did not have to use the concept of adoption to explain how he saved us, or even how we become part of his family. He could have stayed with the language of new birth so that all his children were described as children by nature only.
(John 1:12-13)

“But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.”) But he chose to speak of us as adopted as well as being children by new birth. This is for the most part essential and foundational in the picture of adoption which is indeed a portrait to each of as we realize that we are children of God. May we get a hold of this so that it is actualized within the reality in which we live, move and have our being.

“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.” (Romans 8:14-17 ESV)

In other words, to put it simply, do not slip back into an old identity, which does not speak true of who that God declares that you are in his Word. If any man be “in Christ” He IS a new creation.

“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1 ESV)
I implore of each you, please do get a hold of this or you may well vacillate back in forth in your walk with Christ if you allow yourself to lose sight of this very vital tenant of faith.

Some walk in darkness because they allow this to become obscured from their vision. I know first hand because I have been there. All praise be to the glory of God the Father through Christ Jesus who has by His Spirit revealed it to me and has thus set me free. He who the Son sets free is free indeed.

To redeem means to obtain or to set free by paying a price. What was the price that God paid for our liberation and adoption? Here the answer: “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree’” (Galatians 3:13). It cost God the price of his Son’s life.

We are thus redeemed from living under the law of sin and death. We are then enabled to live eternally with our minds centered, seated and focused in the mind of Christ, while seated in the heavenlies. As strangers and pilgrims we walk the earth because no longer being “of this world, we are then merely “in” this world as we “take on” a new nature in Christ. We are to “be” then instruments of the righteousness in Christ as indeed reflecting the nature and character of Jesus to a world that is in contrast to such in it’s unredeemed natural state. We are to be then “ministers of reconciliation” of the natural to the spiritual which is another whole subject matter in itself.

You did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. (Romans 8:15-16)

God does not leave us in the condition of aliens when he adopts us. He does not leave us without feelings of acceptance and love. Rather, he pours his Spirit into our hearts to give us the experience of being embraced in His family. What is remarkable is the picture in the term “abba”. It is an Aramaic word.

This is that it was the way Jesus spoke to his Father, in spite of the fact that virtually no one in Jewish culture referred to God with this term “abba”. It stunned the disciples. They held onto it as a precious remnant of the very voice of Jesus in the language he spoke. In Mark 14:36, Jesus is in Gethsemane and prays, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” Therefore, in adopting us, God gives us the very Spirit of his Son and grants us to feel the affections of belonging to the very family of God. This is the relationship He wants us to experience with Him.

All who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.” (Romans 8:14)

I hope this helps you to walk in a greater measure of liberty.

“Once bound and Now Free!”

Life is always on the move. Yet we seem to so readily get stuck in life, don’t we?
I was dead in the trespasses and sins in which I once walked. I was trapped and held captive by something seemingly beyond my means to change.

I followed the course of this world, followed the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh.

There was I carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and by nature among children of wrath, like the rest of mankind; which is what we all are by nature born into.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with wherewith he loves me, even when I was once dead in trespasses, made me alive together in and through Christ, by whose grace I have been saved from the curse of sin and death that presses on all of mankind.

He raised me up and seated me with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

You can as well secure your eternal destiny if you have not yet done so.

In so, for us all, that God in the coming ages might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

For by grace are we thus saved through faith. And this is not our own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

I am here in message and living manuscript; knowing in whom I believe and am kept unto eternity, in faith with keeping with what I speak and in what I walk out.

I am put on display to be read and known of all whosoever that may have or gain an ear to hear and eyes of faith to see the unseen, to discover, embrace, and make known the mystery of the ages; the revealing of Jesus – Yeshua, the Christ, the Saviour of the world, the Lord of heaven and earth. Like you, I am in a body of flesh. Yet I am walking in two worlds at the same time. He knows your name as he knows mine and perhaps you are being drawn to Him, for such a time as this?

This is not about me, my story has become His story. You see I traded in my story and all that “I thought I was” and laid it at the foot of His Cross. I traded in all my sadness, sickness, infirmity and a death sentence for a life that is abundant and free. If you can’t claim similar as your testimony then now is your opportunity to have that turning point in your life that will exceed anything you can ask or think according to the power of His Holy Spirit that is in readiness to do the same work in you.

You may or may not “get” the message, but to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?

Do you dare to believe God? For what are you living? Towards what does your passion drive you? Or have you become passive about life?

God designed us to be passionately on fire and radically in love with life and thus living it to the full. I live to love that I may live fully. What about you?

It seems if your are reading and following this blog then perhaps you’ve joined me in this adventure with God. I so welcome any and all to continue or commence, whatever your case may be. Are you hungry and thirsty for what you know not of yet?

I am here to simply share with you where and how I have and do receive the bread of life. It is His living Word than transforms. You simply participate with God’s plan. What I carry within me is a message for the end time church and it is simply the true gospel that has always been, as Jesus is still the same yesterday, today and forever. This is nothing new yet God declares that He does “a new thing” right now.

Many have lost their way and the Father says it is “time to come home”. God has given me my assignment and I walk it out dying daily to the self that seeks to be in control. May I assist you to walk in victory in Christ so that His reign in your life can get you free? Then I am here for you in whatever way I can be. Please feel free to reach out and respond if what I am sharing speaks to you in any way. Or just keep reading and applying what God gives you. May His peace find it’s way to you and rest upon you.

Looking in Love – to Life

As to why you and I are here, right now; why we meet here on this page is no accident nor is it by mere chance. Seriously it is not about me nor is it about you. It is solely about the One for whom we exist and the reason for all things which make up life as we know it exist. His name is Jesus. I have no other message than the one that illustrates that His death, burial and resurrection set in course the correction and resetting of all history so that all may fully live and not suffer and die under the weight of the burden that rests upon all of humanity. He cancels the curse and cause of all that seeks to stamp out and nullify the reason for living. That is why I am here. Nothing else in life matters. If you miss the heart and matter of the message I bring, then you may be missing your opportunity to the see the One for whom and for the very reason and crux for why you exist in a human body here on this earth.

If your very reason for living, moving and having your being does not point to what Jesus sacrificed, gave and surrendered at the Cross for each and every member of humanity that has and ever shall exist and this includes you, then you are existing in vain. If what you are doing in life does not point to the One who holds every atom and molecule that holds the body together in which you exist, that expresses “you” to this world, then you are wasting and throwing away the greatest of opportunity that can play a vital role in transforming the face of life here on this earth. That may sound like a mouthful of words to you right now; however it expresses my heart in this moment to the best of the ability I can gather and present.

Do you realize how much and to what extent and to what level His love extends to you right now? Only you can answer that. I can’t read your mind. To this message we can be so very blind sometimes and that is because we are born into a nature that is out of alignment with the nature of the One in whose image we are created.

Jesus righted and restored all of that to all of humanity at the Cross. You are either “in Him” or you are not. That choice rests with you. You either know and are growing in that knowledge of Him or you are not. Life is centered in and revolves around that which is Eternal and all else is transient and will perish with your fleshly body and to put it plainly will at some point in time – taste death. You face Eternity and in the end that is all that matters.

God is the source and essence of true love,and any other representation of which may be labeled as love is perhaps a false imitation and of that that which is true, lovely, and of excellent report and worthy of all exception. Jesus is the living illustration of true love in action which is forever is in motion.

What are you living for? If it is all about you or anyone else or anything other than the mission for which for we are all here as a chapter in God’s divine story, then you are wasting away a precious gem and jewel in God’s eyes and you will never achieve lasting fulfillment, satisfaction, joy, achievement of mattering and making an eternal impression upon the imprint of humanity. I’m cutting to the chase to bring this message home to you to where you may actually receive and act upon it.

It is all and solely about Jesus; there is no other in whom we can truly live, move and have our being.

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.”

“And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” (Colossians 1:15-20 ESV)

Now I rejoice in the sufferings of pain and infirmity that I yet experience in my flesh as the grace and glory of God brings me though which at moments seems excruciating and unbearable; His grace is sufficient every time. Through His sacrifice I am already healed and whole; it takes to manifest, in this life and thereafter. These are truly light afflictions in compares to Him, which do pass and they come and go again and again. These experiences leave an imprint upon my soul and I gladly go through them over and over again in what understanding I gain through them. I see more and more of the One in whom and for which I live; I see Jesus more and more.

I can perhaps share with you how you can get through anything. I have wondered why God allowed me to go through what I have. But my story does not matter. It is not about me. Please don’t ever look at me for the man that I am; please look to Jesus. What I go through is nothing in light of His glory. I will always strive to point you to Him. If you miss out on knowing Him then you totally miss out on life. I am here so you can perhaps be touched by the glory of God, which is His goodness.

If you connect with me at all in any shape or form or through any means, may it be to get a touch or sense of His presence. I have no other agenda, motive or mission in life other than to give you and all others through my expression of life whatever it takes, that you may touch in some way, have a chance to touch the hem of His garment. Any of my accomplishments count for nothing unless they enhance the Kingdom of God; and His righteousness (Jesus). Seek nothing else. Nothing else matters to me. The Kingdom is God is within you and I. Whether we act upon it and make it real in the life we live is left to our choice.

Is there an empty place in your heart or life that feels unmet? May you be found in Him. May you come to rest fully in Him and live fully to express His glory. Let go of the reigns, my friend. You are destined for so much more! His mercies are new in every moment; receive them!

Go Deeper in Love

I seem to be hard pressed in recent days to delve in even deeper to exploring what being “in Christ” truly means. How can I even touch the hem of the garment? I hardly feel qualified yet I will share what He is saying to me. I must. I cannot be silent or still about this. I believe it to be an endless exploration to which in human terms knows no end. It is a destination that I believe one never can attain while in a fleshly body. But chase it endlessly I shall until I breath my last breath. Nothing is more worthy to pursue. When Jesus returns for His bride and we take on a new spiritual glorified body; then and only then will our current state of being be transcended. Until then, may we press in and go deeper. Please have a seat in Jesus’ Name.

This is a bit lengthy, I apologize but I hope you will stay with me here. There is a clarion call for clarity on this. There seems to be an immense hunger awakening in the Body of Christ to understand this now and to enter in to such. It will get out though, one way or another. God will see to that. We can’t truly live on “instant and quick” for very long. Many have lost for the most part the art of process. Patience produces the fruit.

So what is it to be “all in”? First of all unless we are constantly moving towards such then we have indeed become stuck and static and perhaps likened unto the Dead Sea; constantly drinking in and having no outlet. At a standstill, which is not God’s plan nor man’s ideal. Creativity must be in motion. We are born for movement in life.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV)
Let’s look at being “in Christ”, in loving relationship with Him and living out His Word in loving form.

May we discover why life is working for and not against us. “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31 ESV)

If we truly be “in Christ” then we are no longer “of “ this world, we are merely “in” it. This by God’s design. He has a plan. “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. “
(Romans 12:1,2 ESV)

When we place our faith and trust in Jesus we take on a new nature.
So why is it that we find soon thereafter that life can still be difficult?

Why is it that the things I want to see in my relationship with God seem to fall by the wayside at times and I end up doing some of the things I would not do instead that are not pleasing to Him?

How do I walk in the true identity in whom God says that I am?

In John 15:1-17 we find the context from which we will be drawing from today. I suggest that you go read this and spend some time with it on your own. Jesus said:
Abide in me, and I in you.

Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that will be fruitful in life. (satisfied, full and abundant)

“If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatsoever you wish and it will be done for you.” (John 15:7)
So often this is quoted and claimed but do we really know what this means and to actually apply it to our lives? Let’s break this down a bit so we can understand what God is saying.

We can feel like we lack something in our lives, like something is missing. Indeed there can be something missing like some vital ingredients.

What are some things or areas of your life that you feel are lacking right now? Ponder this and hold your thoughts and let us continue on.

What are the key ingredients that bond or hold relationship together? What would bring a sense of completion to your life? Can you even arrive at an answer?

So how is our reality framed by God? Let’s see what God has to say about such.

A sense of lack can enter until we understand that it is because His Word holds all things together. “For by him (Christ) all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities, all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. (Colossians 1:16,17 ESV)

We are to speak the truth in love, and in so doing we will in all things grow up into Christ Himself, who is the head. From Him the whole body is fitted and held together by every supporting ligament. And as each individual part does its work, the body grows and builds itself up in love. So I tell you this, and testify to it in the Lord; you must no longer walk as do those of this world do, in the futility of their human thinking. (Ephesians 4:15-17 paraphrased) We are walk together as one. This is a great mystery however there is a picture in marriage for it, in it’s purified form. God is doing a new thing to restore clarity to this picture; to the Body of Christ.

We become fragmented when His Word, which is wrapped in His love, loses its consistent cohesiveness in our expression of the way we live. His Word is the glue which holds our life together.

Then our life weave of tapestry begins to unravel.

We thus begin to feel fragmented, as it becomes intertwined with contrasting thread of this world.

What are some ways that feel unraveled in your life?
Do you feel you have to have it all together before you can find the true fulfillment that God intends for you to come into and experience?

To be “in” His Word, and “in Him intimately we must be first and foremost be centered, focused and grounded “in” His love; where we can reciprocate this back out through our life.

The Living Word, (Jesus), comes out of the Father’s heart of love and bears His Father’s heart, so that we “in love”, with Him will bear the Father’s heart.

As we speak His Word, in the love of the Father’s heart there is a sound that creates newness of life. In the beginning God spoke into a void that consisted of darkness moving upon the face of the waters.
In life everything is making a sound. As God’s Word speaks to you, you hear His Words to you. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God. Your response in sound matters, your movement matters. It is joining in with something you can’t see. If we want to be real Christians then we have to live between two worlds; the tangible world and the unseen world. God saved us so we would live between these two realities and declare to the world that this is what real life looks like! It isn’t just what I can touch, experience, eat or drink, there is something far more than those things. (Eternal vs. transient) I’m not to be a mere spectator, but a participant in God’s process.

Your sound arises out of what you believe.
Living, moving and having our being in fullness here on earth as in heaven.
What you speak you must fully believe in. (with conviction)
What you believe sets your life course.
What you believe determines every relationship.
What you believe determines your joy, peace, contentment, etc.

Living not by physical bread alone, but by every word proceeding out of the mouth of God. Living out of the fullness of the love from the Father’s heart.

If you are praying His Word out of the Father’s heart
then whatsoever you ask then of the Father in Jesus Name, will be fully granted because His Word is flowing out of you in purity. You become the living expression of His Word. As His Word becomes part of you can have a conversation in your own words of expression and just talk with Him as you would sit down with anyone and share intimate conversation; one to one.

Know that you are secured and met in your beloved. We can short change ourselves if we miss out on the intimacy Jesus longs to have with you and I. This intimacy includes an outlet which spills out and over and into the relationships that we come into with others. This I believe is essential instigating the thriving passion that will set your soul on fire. Do you hunger for such? Sure you do! God designed us for such. We can get into denial over this and never chase it. Please don’t deny yourself the adventure of a lifetime. You have no idea what you are missing.

May we in every way and in every day, thus fulfill His commandment in keeping the royal Law; which is loving God with all of mind, soul and strength and loving all others as self. The love we extend is selfless and gives and multiplies as the Father gives and sustains us.

Thus speak to the mountains in your life and they will move. I discovered that “what” I do doesn’t make things happen. It is “what I believe” that matters. We don’t pray to do things, we pray because we are believing in something. Jesus sets us up for a lifestyle of faith regardless of what we see. Faith sees what cannot happen but stands in the place of possibilities.

Whether or not the “mountain” is moved or not – will your faith be unwavering?
Faith is not to move the mountain, it is so that you are bearing witness to what God is doing. Faith is the catalyst to love in action. It’s all about believing God, so that He can make those things happen!

John 8:31–32 (ESV) says “So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” What this passage doesn’t say is, “If you obey every word of Jesus you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” It says if you live in what Jesus has said, if you dwell there, then you will know the truth and the truth will set free.

Let it be on earth as it is in heaven. Ask for the daily “manna” in your life.
It is your inheritance because Jesus’ blood flows through your veins and His breath fills your lungs. This is “being in Him”.

Be balanced in grace and truth, basking in His love; will you?

Your life will be full and complete amidst trial and test.
Yes, there will be pain and discomfort because of a body of flesh.
However there is fullness of joy that transcends it all.

I can say “it is” worth it all because of what the process instills in me. So seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness; “in Jesus”.

“All” things are added “as” we have need of them. Now do you get the picture?
You don’t have to micromanage it, just “be” that which God declares that you are.

This “is” living – to love = living in abundant fullness. By this, is the Father is glorified as Jesus is magnified in and through us.

Your joy in your freedom is Jesus’ highest mission. This is all about relationship.

Now go and bless all that others that you meet and life will meet you the same.

“Embracing and Living in Love unto Fullness”

An often quoted and known promise, yet do we understand what this brings forth?

If we be “in Christ” then we are not “of “ this world, we are merely “in” it. This by God’s design.

We can feel like we lack something in our lives,

This is because His Word holds all things together,

And we become fragmented when His Word wrapped in His love,

Loses its consistent cohesiveness in our expression of being.

Then our life weave begins to unravel.

We thus begin to feel fragmented, as it becomes intertwined with contrasting thread of this world.

To be “in” His Word, we must be “in” His love; reciprocating life.

The Living Word, Jesus, in the Father’s love, bearing Father’s heart, so we “in love”, with Him become the sound producing vibration of His Word, in real life, where we are and go.

Living, moving and having our being in fullness here on earth as in heaven.

Living not by physical bread alone, but by every word proceeding out of the mouth of God.

So then whatever you ask then of the Father in Jesus Name,

Will be fully granted because His Word is flowing out of you in purity. You become the living expression of His Word.

In every and in every day;

Thus we fulfill His commandment in keeping the royal Law;

Loving God with all of mind, soul and strength and loving all others as self. The love we extend is selfless and gives and multiplies as the Father gives and sustains us.

Thus speak to the mountains in your life and they will move.

Let it be on earth as it is in heaven.

Ask for the daily “manna” in your life

Be it because Jesus’ blood flows through your veins

His breath fills your lungs. This is “being in Him”.

Your life will be full and complete amidst trial and test.

Yes, there will be pain and discomfort because of a body of flesh.

However there is fullness of joy that transcends it all.

I can say “it is” worth it all because of what the process instills in me.

Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness; “in Jesus”,

“All” things are added “as” we have need of them.

Now do you get the picture?

You don’t have to micromanage it, just “be” that which God declares that you are.

This “is” living – to love = living in abundant fullness.

As we “get this” shall not a new Hosanna arise from within us? Oh yes, most certainly this coming forth!

Now go and bless all that you meet and life will meet you the same.

Perfection in Love Fulfills All

How many struggle through life over supposed opinions that they perceive others hold over them? Or why do some dwell on “what was done to them” in their past and get stuck there unable to move forward with life at this moment? Why do we even allow such to matter or hold substance in our thoughts when the only thing that truly matters is that God has already established the foundation for all that is to remain fixed or established in the earth?

“Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast. (Psalm 119:89,90 ESV) We have a more sure word of prophecy to speak into our lives.
So to allow one’s past to dictate to them who they are today seems rather foolish does it not? Why hang onto such? Why not place it at the foot of the Cross and let it go. What Jesus did at the Cross already has covered such

Jesus stated that the Kingdom of God already exists within us; a kingdom that cannot be shaken. “Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe” (Hebrews 12:28)

So how is it that we make allowances for the transient to prevail, direct and control our lives when all that matters and shall remain is that which God deems eternal and fixed within His Word?

“See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven. At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain”.

So let me ask you what really matters in your life? Are you allowing “vain imaginations” to “shake you up” in the transient circumstances and to take root? These then become strongholds that will keep you at a stalemate if you allow them to.

People are never your enemy nor are their actions directed toward you to ever determine who they are in your perception. The only response on your or my part is to love them as God loves them and that is without partiality. Forgiveness in love will cover a multitude of instances where we may fail to measure up in one another’s eyes. Love is always a pure choice. It is not a feeling or emotion subject to circumstances. Where it is with held from another, there forms a root of bitterness to take hold and one creates the consequences that follow.

Stand fast therefore in the liberty to which you are called to in Christ. Don’t give in and submit again to a yoke of bondage and slavery.

We can choose to destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience that forms in our thoughts “before” it becomes a step that is taken. This is our obedience that makes our life complete. Do you realize what ” a sense of lack is? It is the sense of absence that surfaces where any part of our life is not allowed to be perfected in love. This realization is so simple yet it so readily alludes us, does it not?

Look at what is before your eyes. Live to love that you may fully live; will you thus choose? Love fully “as” you look and “before” you leap. When anyone measures themselves by another or compares themselves with another, they are without understanding. There is only one measuring stick or standard and that being what God has established in the heavens in His Word. This may we walk out fully in the earth.

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are”. May each of us choose to walk as a child of God; true to who we are in God’s eyes, as we walk out life with one another.
