This Same Spirit

As the glorified Jesus Christ finds a habitation within us, a life-giving river of the Spirit of God gushes from our innermost being. “My words are Spirit, and they are life...the word of God is living and energetic, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit...” John, in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, saw Jesus Christ, “his voice as the sound of many waters...and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword” (Revelation 1:15-16). The same Spirit of God who strengthens the inner man weakens the outer man. The same Spirit of God which empowers the new creation man devastates the old creation man. The same Spirit of God communicates the wisdom of God and confounds the carnal mind. The same Spirit who anointed Jesus to heal the sick, raise the dead, and cast out demons, led Jesus to the cross. This same Spirit of God, burns in us the outworking of all that Jesus accomplished on the Cross.

“Father God…Draw us to walk on the narrow path of your will that this same
Spirit might burn a path through our soul that your life might be released.
Lord Jesus, we want to know you…we long for your appearing…quicken our
mortal bodies that we might fully redeem the time we have been given.
We love you Lord and we desire your presence above all else.”

Decisions decisions

We make few major decisions, but each day we make many “minor” (seemingly to us) decisions that feed either the carnal, or the spiritual aspect of our being.  The accumulation of these choices will result in our becoming predominantly carnal, or spiritual.
As our spiritual decisions begin to outweigh the negative pulls and responses, we become an “overcomer.”  To the extent that we rise above carnal soulish desires, we are lifted into a place of communion with our Lord, and we grow spiritually.

“To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with Me in My Throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His Throne.”  Revelation 3:21

Our position with Jesus in this “throne relationship” is the result of our overcoming (rising above) all that is earthly and carnal.  We receive the privilege, or honor of being seated with Jesus in His Throne (as His Bride) as a result of the accumulation of the right decisions and choices that we make (being an overcomer).

Wait a Minute

Acts Chapter 1:8 (KJV)
But you shall receive power, after the Holy Spirit has come upon you: and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

The word of God is a present word a living word a word that is ever unfolding.
Power is never a gift. It’s always AFTER…Waiting in the presence of the Lord

Isaiah 40:31(KJV)
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength…..Ye shall receive power after….
If I spend time waiting the power comes after. It is always the result of two things waiting and receiving.
I wait…I spend time…. I receive an impartation….into my being
In order to receive it my soul, the activity of my self-life has to be quieted.
I have to come to the end of my self.
Self doesn’t like that. The Law of Self is powerful.

Power is also a result of a process of testing and proving. The Lord will arrange a testing point.

Revelation 3:21
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame,
and am set down with my Father in his throne.

This speaks of authority and power…the overcomer is tested and proven again and again.
I believe we learn much more through our perceived failure and the suffering that it brings.
It is this working of The Cross that brings an end to our “self-Life”
It is the Life of The Son that causes us to choose the Lords will and progress spiritually.
In that victory is an impartation of power.

Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose.

all things….even terrible things…mistakes…bad choices…..all things …….
through the eyes of this redemptive process we learn to choose for The Lord.
Our eyes are opened and we see the eternal value of partaking of His Life.

Mathew 11:12 (KJV)
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven
suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

The violence is getting the soul quiet. Casting aside every weight and pressing
in. It is spiritual warfare. There are many needful things in our life but in the end
only one thing will matter. Choose this day to wait upon the Lord.
Put your life in His hands.

Issues of Life

As we walk with The Lord and desire more of His presence we become sensitized to The Holy Spirit.
We become keenly aware of things that are harmful to spiritual life. It becomes important to rightly
choose what we "see" and "hear" because we literally take it into our being.  Our eyes are truly the
windows to our souls, and likewise our ears.  What we choose to see and listen to, ends up residing
within us and will ultimately find some type of expression.

“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Prov. 4.24)

The things of the world are as weights that keep us from running the race of The High Calling in Christ.
There is a day dawning when everything will be revealed. Ultimately what resides within our hearts
will be known. We can fill that place with things from this life or we can surrender all to The Lord
and become an expression of His Life. In Revelations the overcomer is as a "sea of glass". A life that
has become a transparent expression of His Life. Guard your heart each day with all diligence.
It is from the abundance (what we allow in) of the heart that the mouth speaks. It is the very essence
of who we are. All that is of eternal value flows from within our spirit as love that can fill our hearts
with His Life. All that the enemy would seek to do comes from without. We choose each day to fill
our hearts with things of the spirit realm or things of the natural realm. Temporary things or Eternal things.
Light or darkness....Life or death.....May we choose Life…

A Tale of Two Lives

It seems as if I have lived two Lives. One Life has been full of great blessings, answered prayer, healings, dreams, visions, prophesy's  and glimpses of things that I don’t yet have words to describe or explain. An awareness of a Kingdom to be revealed. An almost Deja vu feeling at times as I sense that I am being Re membered by The Holy Spirit and placed into the Body of Christ. Almost like spiritual mileposts to an eternal destination. There are times I have read Gods word and felt as though I was inside it. It was so real as if it were a substance that could be consumed in some physical sense.

I have also experienced another life. One of tests and trials. Of sowing and reaping. Of learning obedience through suffering and shame. Praying for others at times and feeling so limited as the "free will" of many is like a wall to The Spirit. Knowing God is able, yet not being released to function in a greater measure of "Sonship". A working out of salvation with fear and trembling. Becoming utterly dependent upon the Body of Christ for Life supply as the natural realm becomes something very strange and ultimately uninhabitable. Going through periods of time without the slightest hint or trace of activity in my spirit. 

One Life seemed to work the works of God and His Kingdom purposes.  The other Life seemed to be for testing and discipline, to work out the will of God for me in a life that He had foreknown and foreordained. I am convinced that most of what I have experienced is for my preparation for His Kingdom and my eternal expression of His Life. Yet I have seen the mystery. We shall not all sleep but we shall be changed. In a moment. A trumpet will sound and we will be lifted into a new level of relationship with Our Lord who has made us "Kings and Priests"

Many Mansions

In my Father’s house are many mansions (John 14:2), this speaks of levels of experience and relationship
with The Lord. As we are faithful and obedient we begin to partake of this in a greater measure.
We are changed from glory to glory (2 Cor 3:18) by the Spirit of The Lord. It does not say we
are changed from repentance to repentance. Most of our repentance is simply a greater
resolve to do more and try yet again in our own strength. I will say something that might sound
like heresy but “stop repenting” and simply come into the Lords presence before the throne
of Grace, accepting the Lords blood as “payment in full” for your sins. It is here in His presence
that we are truly changed. It is here that we creatively receive His life and the desires of
our heart become His desires…from glory to glory… As we in His presence expose our need
to His glory The creative power of an endless life touches us and we are changed.........
by the Holy Spirit who is a type of the crucified life. It is the singular purpose of The
Holy Spirit to reveal the Life of The Lord Jesus Christ in each one of us. When His kingdom
is established within us in an ever increasing measure we become aware of receiving the keys to new
realms of His Kingdom. Where The Spirit of The Lord is there is liberty and freedom from all that
keeps us bound in the natural realm. Its not a life changed but a life exchanged. Its no longer I that lives
but Christ that ever seeks to find expression in me. True repentance means to change your mind. Put
on the mind of Christ and bring every thought captive to that eternal reality. See yourself as the Lord sees you.
Our life is hid in Christ. There is perfect peace (Romans 14:17), because His life meets every demand as
we stand very still and see His salvation revealed. He whom the Son sets free is free indeed!

Youre Beautiful

As we begin to see ourselves as God sees us, that vision becomes reality in us.
It is extremely important to know who we are, because what we do flows out
of who we are, including our relationships. Getting a grip on who He is and
who we are in Him will also revolutionize how we relate to one another. It
literally changes our emotional chemistry to encounter the majesty, beauty,
sweet affection, stunning mystery and splendor of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
It is also what will make our ministries more loving rather than legalistic.
We are becoming a greater reflection of who He is.
So how do we begin to feel beautiful before the Lord? It happens
as we allow God to crucify the old self. “That I may know Him
and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings,
being conformed to His death” (Philippians 3:10) First the heart cry to know
Him must come, and then the willingness to pay the high price. This requires us
to identify with Him in His death before we can he raised to new life (resurrection).

Just a few words from my heart in 2014

The Lord has given me a burden for His people. That they might be prepared and released to function in His Kingdom. That their heart might become good ground. That an awareness of the conditions by which The Lord becomes active in their life would be imparted and experienced. He has brought many into my life who are hungry for more. Their heart is deeply longing for something beyond their present experience, so the word of the Kingdom finds residence deep within the inner most parts and over time becomes spiritual reality. The greater the need the deeper the revelation. I don’t have anything in my head for anyone, my memory seems very lacking, but I have been brought to a place that my heart is dependent on The Lord. If there is a hunger in the heart and we are open to receive then without exception the Spirit of Life will flow out and meet that need. I always have faith that The Lord wants to impart something of Himself (Spiritual Substance). What I have received is something of Life for those who want to go on with the Lord. The way I have found to listen is not with my head. If all that I have from the Lord I tried to keep in my head I would be lost and lifeless “He that hath an ear let him hear”…it’s that spiritual ear that receives life. We don’t get to store it up in our mind. It flows and functions in the field of need. There is an inner spiritual ear. The ear of the Spirit. Within this inner Spiritual being we discover the ability to hear. Those that are known are truly known by the witness of the Spirit because we are spirit beings. If we live in the spirit let us also walk in the spirit. He that hath an ear to hear,  let Him hear what the Spirit is saying in this hour. For years I wasn’t being feed but the Lord has been faithful and lead me to a place where He has been able to reveal Himself and make Himself known to me and through me. I have learned as I have listened with this inner spiritual ear that truth registers in my spirit and works its way into the understanding, It may take months or years for the Lord to organize the circumstances of our life to create the conditions so that truth is perceived and released from the inner most parts of our being up into the consciousness, that the eyes of our understanding be opened. Religion attempts to do it the other way, they approach the intellect trying to fill the mind with truth, thinking it will save the soul. Not realizing that truth is a Person, the Word is alive and quick and powerful. In the whole of the universe there is no life outside of Christ. The Lord has us hidden now. We as a Bride are making ourselves ready by yielding to The Spirit and becoming dependent upon the Tree of Life (Christ). Out of that relationship flows a measure of authority as sons. There will be a day when we are sovereignly lifted by The Lord, caught up into a new level of relationship with Him where we function far beyond our present ability. Now Christ is being formed in us, His Body. The day our unveiling is approaching. When this happens the whole world will be shaken as the kingdoms of this world become the Kingdom of Our God and His Christ. Worthy is the Lamb! Holy ,Holy, Holy is His Name.

This is My Body


1 Corinthians 11:23-26

New King James Version (NKJV)
23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

Til I See You

The greatest love that anyone could ever know
That overcame the cross and grave to find my soul
And 'til I see You face to face
And grace amazing takes me home, I'll trust in You

With all I am I live to see Your kingdom come
And in my heart I pray you'd let Your will be done
And 'til I see You face to face
And grace amazing takes me home, I'll trust in You

I will live to love You
I will live to bring You praise
I will live a child in awe of You

You are the voice that called the universe to be
You are the whisper in my heart that speaks to me
And 'til I see You face to face
And grace amazing takes me home, I'll trust in You

You alone are God of all
You alone are worthy, Lord
And with all I am my soul will bless Your name

Little Children

Matthew 18:2-3
And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Salvation is a free gift. (I have Jesus). The Kingdom (Born Again) Jesus has me.
I am not waiting for eternity, I am living in eternity right now. Our heart must be arrested by a Vision of where we are and Where we are going. We must begin right here, right now to make our spiritual discoveries. We are trying to hard to become adults in the Spirit. We enter the Kingdom as “a child”.
I believe thoroughly and completely that we’ve got to become little children in the realm of the supernatural. To begin our walk in the Spirit with child-like faith. Most in the church are so scared of getting in the flesh that they never get out of it. I don’t know about you but I want go out and “play”. I want to go beyond my natural limitations and dream in the Spirit, imagine in the Spirit, dance in the Spirit, sing in the Spirit, pray in the Spirit, run in the Spirit and play in the Spirit. This will be repulsive to the intellect. And it will send all the intellectual people in the church up the wall. You will hear them say, “stop playing” it’s time to “get serious”. You know I can’t think of a more serious reaction to the words of Jesus in Matt 18:2-3 than to without delay, humble ourselves get out our spiritual things and go outside the man-made limitations of a natural religious order and begin to play. The carnal mind will say what’s going to be accomplished? I say nothing…that’s what happens when you “play”, “Nothing”. We never made "a plan" when we went out to play in the natural. We might find ourselves digging in the dirt and making roads for our toy trucks and marking our territory with some small pebbles.
It’s the same in the Spirit. With the heart of a child the burdens and cares of this world are lifted and the Spirit finds unfiltered expression. Will some take it to far? Will some get in the flesh? Will some make a mess? Sure and we will clean up after them and keep going.  After all they are children so we clean up messes as a normal course of events. We need room to play…space to begin to discover who we are in the Spirit. The intellectual will shoot us down every time we begin to fly. We must overcome the oppression of the carnal mind and press into the Kingdom with the heart of a “little child”. When you play in the spirit your inner being is being made compatible and conducive. That natural resistance of the flesh is being broken down. There is an opening being created in you for the “new wine” to flow. Our ways and Our thoughts are not the ways and thoughts of the Kingdom. It is only as we approach God with the pure and receptive heart of  “a little child” that we can begin to flow in the Spirit. We sow in the Spirit because it’s there that we want to reap a harvest, so when the real thing comes without measure there will be a people who are prepared.
