Certainly it is bigger than what we could ever imagine, this thing called the body of Christ. Certainly, it is only a fraction of what we know from our vantage point. Culturally, the more powerful, and wealthy institutions on this earth have had the luxury of broadcasting a sliver of what the Body of Christ resembles. What we look like. What the manifested sons of God really, fully, are in this world, is largely unrealized, by any natural understanding.
In the days to come we shall be more acquainted with an increased and diverse perspective of WHO HE is and HOW those who are “IN HIM” shall appear.
For as communication is going in this world, so are we being bathed in a vast baptism of perspectives in the body of Christ. In other words, our international vantage points are being blended (and this is a spiritual work) to break off the mindsets that separate us. Old allegiances are being challenged. The clubs we thought we belonged to have shifted on us. The counterfeit of this spiritual work, will have its trendy flare, but, simply put- we are finding each other beyond the limits of culture, language, and nationalities, tethered in the spirit of INTERCESSION. This willingness to bear the burden of the Lord … to walk away from our comforts, away from the noise and tumult of the hour we are living in, and steady our focus on Him, will be the common thread that weaves us together, as one body growing into the head, where our revelatory advancements shall nearly explode exponentially, like a flood; paralleling, and bypassing, the technological attempt to counterfeit the omnipotent God.
Are we ready? Can we see It? What shall our point of reverence be? And yes, this is not a typo- point of REVERENCE BE!? Because interestingly enough somehow it fits, doesn’t it? Shall we bow to the sacred cows who take the place when God becomes silent in our seeking? Or, shall we wait upon that mountain that no unclean thing shall touch, that sacred place of seeking? Until one can make descent and say, “I Am” has sent me … behold it is written of me in the volume of the book.
Hebrews 10:5-12 (kJ)
Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.Then said I, Lo, I come (IN THE VOLUME OF THE BOOK IT IS WRITTEN OF ME) to do thy will, O God … this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;From henceforth EXPECTING, UNTIL HIS ENEMIES BE MADE HIS FOOTSTOOL.
Here we are! As Christ is, was, and is to come. So also, in HIS finished work, it is WRITTEN OF US IN THE VOLUME OF THE BOOK, For as HE IS so are we in the world. He is in us, hidden in plain sight, until revelation knowledge opens up our eyes, corporately; shall we not move out when all the tribes are able to see? Shall not those who bear the ark, even the manifest presence of God, lift him up, even his banner high, until all are able to see that which His glory rests upon, is us? The Living Church is the tabernacle of GOD, and it is written the tabernacle of God is with men. The Holy of Holy is in our hearts. Shall they not know then that the tabernacle of God who is with men is on the move and is standing at the banks of the Jordan for crossing? For the days of Crossing Over are soon upon us, the place of baptism and repentance is, also, the place of crossing, even the ultimate shift of all shifts. Days of renewal, old things are passed away all things shall be come new.
The tabernacle of God is with Men. Emanuel-God with us.
John 2:21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body. Romans 8:9 You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. Romans 14:7 For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. 1 Corinthians 3:16 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? 1 Corinthians 6:3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life! 1 Corinthians 6:13 You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 2 Corinthians 6:16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.”
Let the wilderness be washed away from your feet, from your clothing, forgetting those things that are behind you as you press on to the upward call of God, this transference will take you out of your wilderness struggles, and bring you into your days of inheritance and dominion! This is for that generation of believers who understand that slavery in Egypt, and dieing in the desert, is not what we are destined for in Christ. We have an inheritance to obtain in the king’s dominion, borders to establish, a kingdom to DEFINE. In other words our greatest days are before us, how can a candle be affective under a table, is it not set up, strategically to shine and bring light into profound darkness, to illuminate greater, the area it is lit in? The WORLD STAGE IS THIS PLATFORM. Shall not the Church, Echo the words of Christ? ...
Out of the Wilderness Luke 4:14
Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. He was teaching in their synagogues, and everyone praised him.He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.
Christ the head whose feet we are, proclaims, “Here I am in the volume of the book it is written of me” …
The Body of Christ, grown into the Head, shall be what the world needs to acknowledge in HER DAY OF VISITATION, for the Church is gathering all who will gather- As Chirst himself said, as a hen would gather her chicks … will they know their day of visitation in its time? Shall the light of the world- who is Christ- who is Christ in us the HOPE, and glory, not be that light which shines in the great passage of the end times? Isaiah 60:1 … my light shines upon you, gentiles shall come to the brightness of your dawn, and kings will bow.
Will there not be a day when envoys from the land “who teaches the nations peace” shall wade through the water of the knowledge of His glory, as the waters cover the sea, not so much to bring the good news of salvation, but bring to them the more weightier things of the new covenant. To the end that those waters become a sea of Knowledge where all will know the Lord from the least to the greatest, where a child would one considered to be, at the age of 100! But before this, in the transition- shall you not be changed? Shall not the greatest shift of all change the vessel that holds the glory? Shall not that which is temporary be changed and swallowed up by the eternal and incorruptible? Will not the vessel of clay give way to a more permanent and eternal state to carry that which is forever? Shall not the quickening ensue? In a moment, in the twinkle of the eye? For the dead in Christ shall first rise then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with the Lord, in the air, and then shall we forever be with the Lord. 1Theselonians 4:16 Yet, that day shall not proceed before the revealing of the son of perdition.
Yet, before all of this shall not some of you die? Spend all your earthly goods to spread this gospel? Are there not even now, those of whom the world is not worthy lying on cold concrete, tonight, making the best of it for what they have left? What they have spent for all that they are standing up to be, servants of the good news- poured out. Weeping for the one who no longer is with them, for this day … they were taken.
Those again, who love not their life even to death, who are worthy to stand up and say Here am I, it is written of me in the volume of the book ... why? Because we are flesh of HIS flesh and bone of HIs bone, if we are truly in HIM. For their will be those in HIM who were counted with the martyrs, before the beginning of time- are they not numbered? Are they not accounted for to the very last one? Even as every one of your tears, and hairs of your heads are accounted for, and written of in the ledger of the lost locks of His children, and inventoried with every bottle that holds every tear of every saint of God? So then, we cannot break the scripture or count it heresy- for those in Christ who remain in HIM until the last day, saying, “Here I am in the volume of the book IT IS WRITTEN OF ME.”
The spirit of The Lord is upon me to proclaim good news to the poor …
Apostasy in the last days.
2 Thesolonians 2:2 Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction …
