Have you ever just been full and had to spill over? That’s me right now. I write this just as a praise report and hope that you will be blessed by what the Lord is speaking. One of these days I know the Lord will make a way for me to meet some of you that I have corresponded with and fellowshipped over the email service. I look forward to making some of the conferences in the future.
Humans, place limits on everything that we do. When we get sick we just assume the sickness if it is not unto death will run its course or we must visit the doctor for treatment. We live in a world of limitations. We are programmed to believe that we can do anything if we work hard enough but for some advantages are afforded and to others, they are not thus placing limitations on those less fortunate.
Some examples would be, I am 5 foot 8 inches tall, and in my mind, this limits me as a basketball player in the NBA. I never went to college so in my mind this limits me to ever be the head of a huge corporation. These are just basic examples of how we limit ourselves. Did you know that there are no limits with God the Father?
With man it may seem impossible but with Father God NOTHING is impossible. The doctor may say that I am sick and have a limited time to live and this may be fact. But God’s truth rings in and says, “By His stripes I AM healed.”
Man has a tendency to be very negative. This is the sin consciousness telling us daily that we are poor, blind, naked and miserable and not worthy to receive any of the promises of God. We just ain’t good enough. I thank the Lord daily that I do not eat from the tree of knowledge. When we eat from that wonderful Tree of Life planted in the paradise of God, we come to a brand new consciousness. It is an understanding that surpasses all limitations and the weight, which so easily besets us.
Eating from the tree is possible because of which I am. I am in Christ and of Christ and thus this basic Kingdom, principle of anointing affords me privileges that the corruptible man was not given. Flesh and blood was excluded from this Tree of Life. My journey through the heat of the desert and furnace of affliction was just what the doctor ordered. The flaming sword of the Cherubim was something that I had to pass through if I was going to obtain my rightful position with Christ. The desert place was a lonely place. Though I had been justified by the blood, washed in the Red Sea, sealed by that Holy Spirit of Promise when I came to the next river I was afraid to put my toes in the water for I had never been this way before. The flesh part of me, which clung loosely to my soul, desired to circle one more lap back around the desert.
Father was instructing me, saying “hear me!” I was not to see with these natural eyes for they were deceiving me, they were full of mixture and confusion, and the inward war raged. The spirit and the flesh occupying the same small room. This room had to be abandoned if I were ever to enter the heart of Father and feel unconditional love flood my very being.
My first husband was dead. Why was I still thinking in my mind that I was espoused to him? See I was living in the illusion of life. I was deceived. Adam could no more support me than the man on the moon. Christ in me was doing a mighty work. My eye was becoming single only taking in what He is. Father’s voice was becoming clearer as I stepped through the door into the New Day.
Yes this was Revelation, this was the unveiling of Christ and the limitations of the old man was being pruned, cut away and discarded. No more hesitation, I was now aware of my reality, my spiritual surroundings. The supernatural was opened up and in my barren soul of nothing Father was taking up His residence and ruling from the heavens over the earth.
This consuming fire which poured like a river out of God was now this river of unconditional love.
A love for ALL that had came forth from Him for it is ALL returning to Him. Reconciling ALL things back to Him. He was becoming All in All in my life. The vision of reality was a light that quenched the darkness into nothing. How could I ever enter back into darkness? I did not know the way back. The door had been closed behind me and I was now in the presence of my Father the Creator of All things.
The volumes that He spoke filled the library of my new heart and my mind being renewed by this wonderful transformation was no longer being traduced by the serpent for that old tree had been hewn down, discarded and burned. He who now interpreted was the Christ. The mind of Christ implanted and my beastly nature had been tamed. I saw the lion and the lamb lying next to one another without fear, without appetite to consume. The nature was changed and now must be manifest to the world.
Why manifest this nature? Because God would have ALL men saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. The world was now part of my responsibility. Through the foolishness of this reconciliation ministry message I would shine this light forth and reveal the heart of Father to others.
But then came the persecution. The church, which sat in darkness and practiced and rehearsed their doctrines and traditions called me a heretic. They poked fun at the revelation of God that had been revealed to me. I was being accused of preaching false doctrine a doctrine from the mouth of devils. WHY? Why can’t they receive the truth?
Thank you Father for bringing me into this glorious dimension but how do I get the world to see? Father said “they will see.” “They shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”
IN THE CLOUDS! He is coming in me. Then I was reminded. Rev 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
This was not from a high physical altitude, Paul made that clear when he spoke to the men of Galilee saying “why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”
The Word of comfort came to my heart. 2 Th. 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
He will be revealed and every eye will see Him but “every man in his own order. Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.”
I began to thank God for I now understood, the resurrection is not an event it is a man. Jesus is the resurrection and I understood that my resurrection had already happened. I have already been raised with Him and I should not mourn for the people for God will raise them in their own order according to His divine plan, blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted! Peace engulfed me. I am in the Firstfruit Company. I am a Son invited to the marriage feast. I was risen from the dust of my mortality into a new and living way. (Isa. 26:19)
My origin was now revealed, His plan for ALL mankind revealed. My faith increased, my trust multiplied, 2 Cor 10:7 Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is Christ’s, let him of himself think this again, that, as he [is] Christ’s, even so [are] we Christ’s.
All things are given to Him and of these things, He lost NONE. Who am I to place limitations on the Sovereign God? Was I to expect the promise? No, I am the promise.
I am reigning with Christ until all things are put under His feet. I am of the Foot Company crushing the head of Satan daily. Is this the New Day or not? Are we leaving the Age of Pentecost for the complete filling of the Spirit or not? Is the Lord imputing righteousness or not? ALL made alive. No exclusions, no exceptions just God having complete and total victory as we experience the manifestation of the Sons of God and the world experiences a wave of love like no other time.
1 Cor. 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
In the bonds of love,
This morning I was struck with some thoughts that I began writing down and before you know it I wrote a short paper that I felt I should share with you. Please do not hit your delete key, this writing is for you.
In this imaginary world in which we live we are constantly deceived by the tempter of our mind. We are drawn away continuously by the desires of our heart to further bury ourselves in the realm of materialism. This world is an illusion created by the desire to be independent from our Maker and Creator. Meanwhile our Creator, God – Father, continues to create out of the invisible dimensions a world which is establishing itself as a Kingdom to bring down all that we have built and believe to be real. Our carnal minds have been polluted by our teachers and scholars who claim to be experts in their fields, yet are always changing their perspectives in order to stay politically correct as to not offend. The majority, as well as the minorities, is catered to in such a manner that right is wrong and wrong is right. But at the same time our God never changes. Our ideal of God changes because of outside influences which carry us away with notions and conclusions which are birthed from within mortal man. So that which we give birth to dictates the realm of death and thus we continue to sow death upon death until the carcasses of the dead become the veil and shields us from seeing truth.
The truth is “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.” And this is all we need to understand to break the illusions of life and to enter a spiritual realm and break free of the literal physical world.
And now after all of these years of following men and their cunning craftiness I have learned through suffering that the message to the world today should be the same message the Apostle Paul preached. 1 Timothy 4:9-11 “This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. These things command and teach.”
If the world could only see that there is no other to turn to, there are no choices and no other option when it comes to the things of the spirit. Isaiah 45:22 “For I am God, and there is none else.”
My privilege is to declare that Jesus Christ is “the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for [the sins of] the whole world.” (1 John 2:2) He was sent for one purpose and that is to be the Savior of the world. (1 John 4:14)
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth? (1 Tim. 2:4)
Luke 10:22 All things are delivered to me (Jesus) of my Father:
Look at that verse. The Father gave Jesus ALL THINGS. “The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.” (John 3:35) Let us agree that ALL things and ALL power were given to Jesus. “As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.” (John 17:2) Let us agree that it is Jesus not man who holds the power of salvation. Let us also agree that Jesus sits in the place of authority “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:” (Eph. 1:21)
High and lifted up above all things, “all things are in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing [that is] not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.” (Heb. 2:8)
I hope we would all conclude that Christ Jesus controls all things and that all things have been given to Him. If Jesus were to loose one of these precious ones, if one of these sheep would wander off to be lost, does Jesus give up His rights to this sheep? Or does He retain ownership of that which He purchased with His own blood? “What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?” (Luke 15:4) I tell you friends, as a man with a limited ability to love for I have not yet come into the fullness of God, if something is mine and I own it, then it is lost, I do all in my power to find and to retrieve this lost object. Jesus who is love for if you have seen Him you have seen the Father and we know that God is love and that is all He can be. Jesus will go and find each and everyone that is lost. For one, He loves them and He laid down His life for them and secondly they belong to Him, thirdly He has the power and authority given to Him to do so. “When He has found it.” Not “If He shall find it” But “WHEN” He puts this little one upon His shoulders in a place of safety, comfort and rest and brings it back to the other ninety nine. Who is this one that has gone astray? Well, it is ALL of us. “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isa. 53:6) Jesus lay down His life for the sheep. Though we have all gone astray and have forgotten who we are and to whom we belong, yet we “are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.” (1 Peter 2:25)
What is God’s will? “That none perish but that ALL have life age-during.”
Jesus reaffirms this position “And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.” (John 6:39)
So what did Jesus loose? How many? NONE! “Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.” (Matt. 18:14)
Why can’t they be eternally lost? “Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.” (John 17:7) It is because we are of Him.
Because God said it I believe it! It is written “All will come to Him and He will not cast out any!” (John 6:37)
John 5:28 “Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,” I see the Word of God as a spiritual book to be applied spiritually to our lives. Most Christians today literalize each and every verse until they get to scriptures they have trouble with and then they say “It is too spiritual I can’t figure it out” John 5:28 is one of those verses that we can apply this very hour. “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.” (Col. 3:3) We are dead until we hear His voice and come out of our graves (carnal mindset) Christ is calling us forth unto salvation, out from our graves, out from the old and into the new.
You will not find the answers to hard questions by reading books, watching TV evangelists or even reading my newsletters. The answers are found in the world of the unseen which is around us. Look not at those things in the material world as if they are real. For they are not who we are. But rather seek God and there you will find the answers that will transform you into His image and likeness. “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:” (Phil. 3:20)
