When you were born again and you knew Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, the born-again experience is a turning around experience. It's not that you're choosing Him, but He chose you first. He chose you before the foundation of the world. You were with Him in Spirit in the very beginning in the book of Genesis. It was up to God to make the determination of what your sex gender was going to be, what country you were going to be born into, and who your parents were going to be. You didn't get to choose any of that. He also determined what language you were going to be born into, and the historical time season. He could have put you in the year 500. He could have put you in a BC instead of an AD season, but he chose this time, for such a time as now, for treasures in Heaven - treasures, gifts, and callings - for only you to bring transformation into this world in the unity of the body of Christ, for the body of Christ right now.
The body of Christ is more than what we refer to as believers in Jesus Christ. It's all humanity because Jesus died once and for all and He finished His assignment one hundred percent. He didn't leave anything for the enemy. So, when people tell you you're unworthiness, you're not good enough, your faith isn't strong enough, you got the wrong God, we got the right God, you got the wrong religion, etc. All of that is junk carried through generations of time. The enemy speaks to our soul to de-value the fact that you were born as a child of God and the significance of the cross and the resurrection. The truth is there has not been a first Adam since the resurrection because when Jesus died, went to the grave, He emptied it all - death, hell and the grave. He took it all for the Kingdom of God. He didn't leave anybody down there.
There is absolutely no way that our will is stronger than God. We can pretend it is. We can think that we can deny Him, but when push comes to shove, Jesus Christ, the Light of the world is standing before you. It's not a matter of you choosing Him vs darkness, it's the fact that darkness cannot exist. And when we grasp that and we realized every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess, not because we're being beaten into it, but because of a desire for love. When love is consuming you and the banner of love is overwhelming you, that's the DNA of God within our own spirit speaking. We then desire to let everything go loving God back with our heart, soul, and mind. It's the freedom that you can fall backwards with your eyes closed and know that He's got you. You're in the palm of His hands.
When we grasp the finished work of what the resurrection really accomplished, we understand it has unveiled Christ in us now, and not just, "Okay, now we can go out and tell everybody that they have a ticket to heaven." No, it's bringing heaven’s kingdom within you into this realm. This is the hope and the calling that all the patriots of the Old Testament have longed for, and what Hebrews 11 talks about. They've waited for this day because there's only one body and the body of Christ is inclusive of those that have already crossed over. They received a portion of understanding, but they didn't get it all. We, on this side, in the form of being able to speak the word, can declare the finished work. This cloud of witnesses on the other side - yes, your grandmother, your great-grandmother, all the way back to the beginning of time, have been longing for us to speak the word and say, "Death, where is your sting?" It's not there because we are spirit beings. Our spirit speaks to our soul, and our soul speaks to the body, coming from a heavenly position.
Everything that church leadership has taught concerning a better life on the other side - no tears, no death or sickness – the cloud of witness on the other side is saying, "You got all the goods right now, but you don't know it." You don't know it because you're believing a lie – partial truth – less than the truth that sets you free. The truth is that Christ in you now is the hope of glory, and that you are in Him now, that you already died when Jesus died on the cross, and that the life that you now live is Christ's life ruling and reigning with Him in heavenly places – in you.
Go to Isaiah 52 verse six. "Therefore, my people shall know my name." That knowing is not just an intellectual, but it's an intimate knowing. It's a knowing of the Song of Songs that Solomon talked about. It's an intimacy knowing that a husband and wife have, that produces seed, that produces children. When we know Jesus Christ in that kind of a knowing, that is when we have his word within us, and his word is growing and moving, and it's being developed because whether you're a male or female, it talks about our spiritual womb. It's not up there in the sky somewhere, but it's the womb man within us. In the womb man, when Jesus Christ places His word within you, His Spirit within you, and it develops, you read His Word and the Spirit quickens it and it grows more, a life-giving word out of your inner most being, out of your belly flows rivers of living water. Just like a fountain of living water, the word is growing. But it's going to get circumcised by the heart because the heart is where the throne of God is at and it's going to be a travailing experience.
Then out of your mouth, the heart speaks. The key factor of that? Are you speaking with a double tongue? Are you speaking life or death? Are you speaking out of a tree of knowledge of good or evil? Or are you speaking with a single eye, with a single thought that says life, light, and love? Are you at a birthing place that there is no darkness, no death, no sting? When we listen to how we are speaking and talking, and then little things become stumbling blocks that we end up justifying because that's the way the world talks, the Holy Spirit will speak to our spirit asking if we truly want to abort the WORD we carry. The world talks about anxiety, fear, or a virus that can get you, of what if's - but greater is He who is in you, than what this conversation going on in the world.
Greater is He in you! That's not just a nice saying. No, it's authority and it's power, that by the grace of God, when you know that, it's the grace, that Dunamis power, released through the Holy Spirit, that all of the rest of the world, all of nature, all of the other words of the world are speaking, their power, their dynamics are at a lower frequency than what you're speaking by Presence Christ in you. However, you must know the Presence by experience, not just head knowledge. You have to know who is Good. What is good? You see, the tree of knowledge of good and evil has a good in there, but the tree of life has an essence of the fruit of the Holy Spirit called goodness.
When God in the beginning spoke, "Let there be light." He wasn't just saying, "Okay, let's turn a flashlight on." Or "Let's just turn the light on in the room." No, he was speaking Life - James tells us that he is the Father of lights. He was giving birth. He was speaking His seed out from multiplicities of Himself taking forth. An intensity of light takes place when He speaks a double witness by using the word good saying, "It is good." He's not saying, "Huh, good job. Yeah, that's good." Or "That meets my approval." No, it's more than that. He gave an identity to the word good. He gave an identity of Himself to the word light, as the essence of Himself.
Just like the fruit of the Holy Spirit, when He unveils kindness, love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, faithfulness, self-control - all of those are identifications. They're not just, "Oh, it feels good." Kindness is His kind, Divine kind. That's who you are. You can't be a sinner saved by grace and a God kind expecting that the “sinner saved by grace” is going to have the anointing to be able to lay hands on someone, heal the sick, and do the greater works that Jesus wanted us to do. You must be able to move in your Christ identity, that you are a royal priesthood, a holy nation now, and not just getting it better on the other side, but all of that is for now. That is what the Holy Spirit is saying to a company of people now.
Isaiah 52:7. "How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news. Who announces peace and brings good news of happiness. Whose announces of salvation and says to Zion, 'Your God reigns.'" That's where the church – the body of Christ should be at today. Do you know who's saying that? Go back to verse six. "Therefore, my people shall know my name. Therefore, in that day I am the one who is speaking."
When you have a name change relationship with Jesus Christ, then when you speak, it's Him speaking. You've given yourself to Him as a bride/wife in intimacy of marriage. To be a living vessel for the Kingdom of God, so that heaven's authority comes through you, and now you're speaking it into the world - and the world is going to argue with warfare. The world's going to use things like, “women are not supposed to preach,” and that'll be a shutdown. “You’ve got your doctrine wrong. Where's the rapture in here? We're expecting this and this. How can so many people throughout all of history and all the seminary schools and stuff not be teaching this? You're way off in left field.” Really? You know those voices, you’ve heard them from pastors, teachers, and leadership in the church.
They're not teaching it because it wasn't their time. Today's the day. Today's the hour. And God is opening a whole new understanding that is so inclusive of everything, of recognizing that He owns it all. The enemy doesn't have any rights, except what we end up speaking out of our own insecurities, out of our own doubts, out of our own traditions of men, that this is the way we've always done it. Watch your words.
And when you pray, pray without ceasing. What does that mean? It means you're always talking to God. You're always talking to your Heavenly Father because He goes with you wherever you go. My greatest hunger and thirst are that the treasures that are in me are fulfilled, that He gave me my assignment, is being released into this world because the world is groaning for it. Until that assignment is completed, no enemy can take you, but you must believe that. A virus can't take you. Cancer can't take you. Disease and sickness can't take you. Now, don't challenge God by jumping off a cliff. When Jesus Christ, Christ in you, is moving and having His being in this earth, it's the same effect that Jesus of Nazareth walked on this earth, and nothing could touch him.
Honor God first, with all your spirit, all your soul, and all your heart, leaning into His understanding through a love language of life, and light, and love. Be the light of the world that is around you. Each of us have nuggets of anointing that need to connect with somebody else's nuggets. God is speaking to the body of Christ around the world with a love language that is not found in the traditional church. With the age of information, we can connect to what God is saying in His many membered body called Christ whom Jesus Christ is the head of this body.
Psychology Christianity is what I call if you do good, you don't cheat on your spouse, or you don't beat your kids, you pay your taxes, you try to live a healthy life, you don't lie, you don't cheat, you don't steal, and you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you're going to go to heaven someday, but in the meantime you're going to hang on. That's not kingdom assignment for God. Kingdom work is bringing the kingdom of heaven into this earth now. The millennial time period of a thousand-year reign, is not a literal thousand years, but an eternal presence. It's a one, zero, zero, zero. One is only God. One God, one body, one spirit, eternity, eternity, eternity.
“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (2 Peter 3:8).
