It causes one to allow yourself to be seriously distracted and drawn away from the influences of a fallen world, so that you might spend serious time and intense focus on that which is most important in life.
Is He still your First Love and most esteemed Person, or has your love and passion for Him been choked by the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things ?
Father had me declare not too long ago that His glory realm is opening up, then this morning.
The vision God showed me this morning is obviously humanly impossible to correctly illustrate, but I tried as best I could.
I found myself in this black and white colored realm in which everything was dull and colorless.
Then suddenly right in front of me this supernatural and most glorious realm opened up righ in front of me and Jesus appeared on a majestic throne with this golden wheat on either side of His throne radiating the glory of God.
I knew He declared to us “Now I come and I bring forth with Me your golden harvest of righteousness and great reward 😉 in the midst of your difficult, colorless and dry circumstances.”
We are coming forth out of the wilderness season of being entirely stripped by God, the pressures of being refined and afflicted by the fires 🔥 of our seasonal trials and the long painful journey of allowing ourselves to be fully crucified to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of this life.
Also the Spirit of God has been faithfully with us through a long, excruciating and painful season of birthing the destiny of an entire generation. This long travail and transition out of the old dead ways of a dark fallen world shall suddenly bring those who have yielded themselves entirely to Him on the road of the cross into His world into a majestic manifestation of God’s PRESENCE, and POWER and GLORY.
If people belittle you then it’s because they have a very bad self image, corrupted and distorted by pride. Good looks without humility and a loving gentle kind heart is like a pig 🐖 with a golden ring in it’s nose. The golden ring cannot disguise the true nature of the pig.
By putting you down, they seek to make themselves look better, God sees their heart.
A person with a healthy GODLY self image seeks to make people feel good about themselves, because they understand that God sees us as fearfully and wonderfully made by Him, even if we don’t fit into the mold of our critics.
Only be concerned about God’s opinion about you beloved and see all of your faults, your weaknesses, your shortcomings and imperfections as an opportunity for Him to show himself strong on your behalf and always recall 1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Philippines 1: 6 Being confident of this very thing, that God who has begun a good work in you will perform and complete it until the day of Jesus Christ:
YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, WHEN YOU’VE BEEN RAISED BY YOUR FATHER.
There are those who shall be possessed by God.
Jesus declared “THE LIFE OF MY SPIRIT IS COMING TO YOU”
More revelation about the 144 000 firstfruits
This transformation must be accomplished first in a first-fruit company of sons and then it will be demonstrated and put on open display by God to all men everywhere, who, as beholding in a glass the glory of the Lord, will all be changed into that same image and likeness found in each son of God, fully expressing and manifesting the incorruptible nature of their Master and Lord.
This is the appearing of Christ in His saints, and is accomplished by reason of a fiery transformation that has worked an elemental, nuclear changed in the inner most being of each son.
By son, I mean to differentiate this chosen vessel of God from the servant realm, which is a realm of “whosoever will”, but the true sons are those that are apprehended by God, not asked and invited to participate in such a metamorphosis of character and nature, but these sons of destiny are actually harpooned and dragged to such an occasion! They have no other recourse!
Once the Lord has seized them, there is no turning back and to assure there is no chance of such a returning to where they have been snatched from, all of their former paths are burned up by the operation of the spirit of God. Doors that were wide open to them are slammed shut in their face.
Loved ones turn their back on these appointed messengers, their reputations are dragged through the mud, ministerial positions are revoked, the phone stops ringing, they are cut off from all former associations and they become isolated and confined, without friend or foe, left with only One Hope, to trust in only one True Friend, to hear only One True Voice, rely on only One Source, stand on only One Foundation, live for only One Cause, serve only One Master, Jesus Christ, the Author and the Finisher of their faith! Great Day of God Almighty!
For such a time and occasion have these sons been prepared from before the foundations of the earth and every one will lose their head and be found in Christ, lost and swallowed up into His wondrous Nature, Named with that Name, Anointed with that Anointing, called with that Calling.
The world has never seen such a company of sons that have laid their lives down and sworn allegiance to their King and Lord, the Captain of their salvation.
They can’t be bought and they can’t be schmoozed by the religious Whore of Babylon, her voice does not fall upon their ears, for their hearts are circumcised and their minds are renewed. This is the great Transformation that we are walking into today and I do pray for us all, that we will not fear this great experience, but that we may embrace it and cling to that Purpose that has called us from this world of care into such a private and intimate chamber of birth and renewal.
Extract from Metamorphosis Part 4
Ezekiel’s wheel, a dance of love.
By Pieter Kirstein
Ever wondered what Ezekiel meant when he spoke about the wheel within the wheel ?
The following scripture reveals it beautifully.
The Lord declared…
At that time you will know that I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you. – John 14:20
John 17:21 That they all may be one; as You, Father, are in Me, and I in you, that they also may be one in Us: that the world may believe that You have sent Me. (See Ezekiel 36:23)
22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them; that they may be one, even as We are one:
23 I in them, and You in Me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them, as you have loved Me.
Everything about the true body of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth is revealed, blue printed and found in Him. Our intimate love relationship with the Lover of our souls are to be as a divine holy dance as we learn in the fires of purification and death to our former way of life to yield ourselves to Him, to His leading, to His voice, to His will and to His guidance.
The word GUIDANCE means….
GOD AND I DANCE
God has raised up a generation of Jesus lovers, of radical God chasers and Holy Spirit possessed on fire world shakers, history makers and atmosphere changers that are gonna move like a whirlwind across this earth before anyone can even begin to think about a “rapture” as taught by the traditional teachings of men.
The first rapture is Christ receiving His prepared purified bride into himself through the power of resurrection, AFTER SHE POURED HERSELF OUT TO HIM COMPLETELY, through the love sacrifice of the call to follow Him on the road of the cross.
We shall move in synch with Him in a dance of love to clear His threshing floors because the harvest must first be gathered.
The Day of the Lord draws near during the time of the harvest – Joel 3:12-14
Let the nations be awakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat, For there I will sit to judge All the surrounding nations.
Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, tread, for the wine press is full; The vats overflow, for their wickedness is great.
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! * For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and latter rains.
You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near.
We were born to make a difference and I declare this day to the rulers of the darkness of this passing age THAT IT’S TIME FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD AGE TO INVADE AND BREAK FORTH AND TO CRUSH, OVERWHELM AND SUBDUE ALL CONTRARY KINGDOMS.
It’s time that the sons of God be brought forth in the resurrection glory of the Lord God Almighty. It’s time for manifest sonship. The night is passing and the Prince of peace shall ride forth in the dawn of a new day, the Lord’s Day and according to Psalm 110: 2 The LORD shall send the rod of your strength out of Zion: rule you in the midst of your enemies. 3 Your people shall be willing in the day of your power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: you have the dew of your youth.
Matthew 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Psalm 30:1 I will extol you, O LORD; for you have lifted me up, and have not made my foes to rejoice over me.
2 O LORD my God, I cried unto you, and you have healed me.
3 O LORD, you have brought up my soul from the grave: you have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
4 Sing unto the LORD, O you saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
5 For his anger endures but for a moment; in his favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
7 LORD, by your favor you have made my mountain to stand strong: you did hide your face, and I was troubled.
8 I cried to you, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.
9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise you? shall it declare your truth?
10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be my helper.
11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing: you have put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
So He has brought us to the end of ourselves as we embraced our personal crosses unto the death of self therefore gird up your loins all you aspiring sons of God and be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Soon we shall hear the battle cry and we shall meet the Lord face to face then we shall ride forth with Him as He leads us to take the battle spoils and gather the precious fruit of the earth.
John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world sees Me no more; but you will see Me: because I live, you shall live also.
20 At that day you shall know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.
He’s coming to His MANCHILD company who shall be unveiled as the manifested sons of God. These now come through great travail and a birthing process as they’ve been purified and transformed within the furnace of affliction – He spoke of this in John 16:
”A little while, and you will no longer see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me.”
Truly, truly, I say to you, that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will grieve, but your grief will be turned into joy.
Whenever a woman is in labor she has pain, because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a man has been born into the world.
Therefore you too have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you. Prayer Promises In that day you will not question Me about anything. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you.
Scripture must be fulfilled according to Ephesians 4:13 And this until we all come into the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a full-grown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.
20 For the creation was not willingly subjected to vanity, but because of Him who subjected [it] on hope
21 that the creation itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
This deliverance and liberation of creation is confirmed in Isaiah 55:10 For as the rain comes down, and the snow from the heavens, and does not return there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring out and bud, and give seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
11 so shall My Word be, which goes out of My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall certainly do what I sent it to do.
12 For you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break out before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap [their] hands.
13 Instead of the thorn, the fir tree shall come up; and instead of the brier, the myrtle tree shall come up; and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign [which] shall not be cut off.
He is coming with great glory and power to inhabit the place prepared for Him, the place of His rest yes, the heart and the temple of His prepared bride. There is a corporate gathering across the earth now of saints as in the upper room and of us God have told me the following…
You shall note that it was the Lion of the tribe of Judah who prevailed to open the 7 sealed book. My bride also prevailed and I am opening up to you My beloveds the holy realm of the revelation of your God. I am coming to reveal Myself in My prevailing abandoned bride. YOU ARE NOW ENTERING THE REALM OF MY REVELATION. THE REALM OF MY REVEALED PURPOSE FOR YOUR SURRENDERED LIVES.
I AM COMING SUDDENLY INTO THE UPPER CHAMBER OF THE HEART OF MY BRIDE THROUGH WHOM MY FINAL PENTECOST WILL BE POURED FORTH AND THROUGH THIS GREAT OUTPOURING OF ABANDONED LOVE MY BRIDE AND I SHALL RECEIVE THE FRUITS OF OUR DEVOTION AND SACRIFICE COMING INTO FULFILMENT THROUGH THE CHILDREN OF THE FINAL GREAT HARVEST, MY HEIRS OF SALVATION.
A wheel within a wheel. At that day you shall know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.
A people so surrendered, a people so yielded, a people so in agreement that they move in synch with the Lord their God. He is the Composer and Musician. We are the yielded instruments being played and our lives the worship and the melody of heaven.
Ezekiel 1:15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold, a wheel upon the earth beside the living creatures, with its four faces.
16 The appearance of the wheels and their workings was like the color of beryl: and the four had the same likeness: and their appearance and their workings was, as it were, a wheel in the middle of a wheel.
17 When they went, they went in any of four directions: and they turned not when they went.
18 As for their rims, they were so high that they were awesome; and their rims were full of eyes, round about the four of them.
19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.
20 Wherever the spirit was to go, they went, there was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up with them: for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.
21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up along with them: for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.
Be ready beloved of the Father, for your God is coming in the whirlwind.
A BRIDE ON FIRE
He’s with us in the fire to bring us forth as a pure, on fire, consecrated to God, in love with Jesus, Holy Spirit possessed and passionate harvester of souls and we’ll be received up by God in the whirlwind of the Lord to bring judgment on the head of the wicked, to clear with Him His threshing floors and to dance the dance of love as He brings us into agreement with His ways.
We are the wheel within the wheel. A people so yielded, so surrendered, so consumed and so in agreement that we’ll move in synch with the Spirit of God.
Are you ready bride of Christ to come out of the furnace to set the world on fire for Jesus Christ?
God’s great outpouring during the day of clouds.
The clouds are forming and gathering within the heavenlies, and there shall be a cloudbreak which shall erupt in a mighty global outpouring of God’s Spirit, power, Presence and glory throughout this earth.
God showed me a powerful open vision of the gathering of the waters within the heavenlies, to form the day of clouds prophesied about in Joel, which shall shall be the result of a people who have been emptied out of themselves and all distracting influences to take up HEAVEN’S MANDATE AND KINGDOM AGENDA, and who have been crucified to the lust of the flesh, the pride of seeking to make a name for themselves and the selfish ambitious ways of those who seek to enrich themselves by merchandising the gospel of Jesus Christ. These purified emptied out vessels of honor shall serve God’s people through a pure heart ❤
They shall be the resurrected risen ones 🙏 who will function with God out of the fullness of the Deity, because they have allowed themselves to be fully crucified. These were not just saved by the cross unto salvation. They have allowed themselves to be also slain by the cross in obedience of the upward call of God in Christ which comes through the correction, the equipping, the training and the discipline of the Father spoken of in Hebrews 12.
These mature, fruitful, purified sons and daughters shall be mountaintop dwellers who shall operate out of the glory realm of God’s manifest Presence, causing them to be unveiled as the manifested sons and daughters of the Kingdom, in whom the life and the Spirit of Christ shall be clearly witnessed.
Before they can be fully indwelt by the fullness of God, they first had to be raised up and purified into a suitable habitation and temple, free from the idolatry spoken of in 2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will dwell in them
And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.”
“Come out from among them
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean,
And I will receive you.”
18 “I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty.”
They were taken out of the world and the world and it’s defiling influences were also taken out of them. Then they allowed the Father to crucify them in the selfishness of the world of self and it’s fallen interests so He might bring them through the veil to dwell with Him in His world.
Isaiah 57:15 For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place,
with him who has a contrite and humble spirit,
To revive the spirit of the humble,
And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
These raised up prophetic people, which are prepared vessels, shall be as raised up storm clouds possessed by God’s Spirit, power and glory that shall come forth in the midsts of great darkness.
1 Arise, shine;
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
3 The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.
8 “Who are these who fly like a cloud?
THEIR APPEARANCE IS LIKE THE APPEARANCE OF HORSES, AND LIKE SWIFT STEEDS, SO THEY RUN.
Joel 2:2 A day of darkness and gloominess,
A day of clouds and thick darkness,
Like the morning clouds spread over the mountains.
A people come, great and strong,
The like of whom has never been;
Nor will there ever be any such after them,
Even for many successive generations.
3 A fire devours before them,
And behind them a flame burns;
The land is like the Garden of Eden before them,
And behind them a desolate wilderness;
Surely nothing shall escape them.
4 * Their appearance is like the appearance of horses;
And like swift steeds, so they run.
5 With a noise like chariots
Over mountaintops they leap,
Like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble,
Like a strong people set in battle array.
6 Before them the people writhe in pain;
All faces are drained of color.
7 They run like mighty men,
They climb the wall like men of war;
Every one marches in formation,
And they do not break ranks.
8 They do not push one another;
Every one marches in his own column.
Though they lunge between the weapons,
They are not cut down.
9 They run to and fro in the city,
They run on the wall;
They climb into the houses,
They enter at the windows like a thief.
10 The earth quakes before them,
The heavens tremble;
The sun and moon grow dark,
And the stars diminish their brightness.
11 The Lord gives voice before His army,
For His camp is very great;
For strong is the One who executes His word.
For the day of the Lord is great and very terrible;
Who can endure it?
The resurrection power of God shall cast the dragon and his princes out and the sons shall possess the heavens, through the greatest end-time kingdom resurrection shift.
Humility is the antidote for the vanity of a world that has fallen into the hands of the king of pride, says the Spirit of God.
The Spirit of God shall break the pride of the prince of the power of the air through the sudden resurrection and manifestation of the sons of God who have humbled themselves before God through the death of self. God’s governance and governmental authority and power manifests through a raised up people who have been emptied out by God and brought to the end of themselves.
A manchild firstfruits company that will be forunners during the time of the latter rain outpouring which shall cause the earth to be harvested.
I was taken through the veil into the realm of the Spirit and the Father caused me to experience the manifestation of Revelation 12. I witnessed Him casting the dragon 🐉 and his princes, out of the heavenlies. God showed me that as soon as He has fully crucified the firstfuit forerunners in their flesh, He shall raise them up through a mighty resurrection into the glorified life of Christ, which is manifested sonship. I experienced the glorified body of a manifested son as I stood there before the Father in the realm of the spirit world, that day.
Jesus declared to me “the life of My Spirit is coming to you”
1 Then there appeared a great wonder in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and having the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
2 And being with child, she cried in travail, and was in pain to deliver.
3 And another sign was seen in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns on his heads;
4 And his tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to deliver, so that he might devour her child when she gave birth.
5 And she gave birth to a man Child, Who was to shepherd all the nations with a rod of iron; and her Child was caught up to God and His throne.
6 And the woman escaped into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there for a thousand two hundred and sixty days.
7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
I DECREE, AND DECLARE AND I PROCLAIM AND SPEAK THIS INTO EXISTENCE BY THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY THAT IS ABOUT TO UNVEIL YESHUA JESUS THE CHRIST AS HE COMES IN HIS FULLNESS TO INHABIT AND INDWELL HIS BRETHREN.
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.
20 For the creation was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who has subjected the same in hope.
21 Because the creation itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
1 And you has he made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins:
2 In which in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our behavior in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, has made us alive together with Christ, (by grace you are saved;)
6 And has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
In full agreement with the above revelation, it must be clearly understood, that these manifested sons of God, that shall be unleashed by the Spirit and the power of God during the time of the latter rain, shall be as His royal horses 🐎 in the battle. I saw a clear vision of the sons running with Jesus in the realm of the spirit and God declared “I AM COMING TO JUDGE THE CHURCH”
Zechariah prophesied about this in chapter 10.
1 Ask rain from the LORD in the time of the latter rain; the LORD Who makes storm clouds, and gives them showers of rain, and to every one vegetation in the field,
2 For the household idols speak lawlessness, and the diviners have seen a lie and have told false dreams. They comfort in vain; therefore they wandered like sheep; they were afflicted because there was no shepherd.
3 “My anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I will punish the he-goats; for the LORD of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah, and has made them as His beautiful horse in battle.
4 Out of them came forth the cornerstone; out of them the tent peg; out of them the battle bow; out of them every master together.
5 And they shall be like mighty ones who trample down their enemies in the mud of the streets in the battle. And they shall fight because the LORD is with them, and they shall make the riders on horses ashamed.
6 And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will return to save them; for I have mercy upon them. And they shall be as though I had not cast them off; for I am the LORD their God, and I will answer them.
7 And Ephraim shall be like a mighty one, and their heart shall rejoice as through wine. And their children shall see and be glad; their heart shall rejoice in the LORD.
8 I will signal for them and gather them; for I have redeemed them. And they shall increase as they formerly increased.
9 And I will sow them among the people, and they shall remember Me in distant countries; and they shall live with their children and they shall return.
I SAY TO YOU THAT THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD SHALL RIP OPEN THE VEIL OF DECEPTION, OF THE TRADITIONS OF MEN AND SHALL COME TO SHATTER THE FOUNDATION OF EVERY FALSE DOCTRINE USED BY THE ENEMY TO DIVIDE GOD’S PEOPLE. MAJOR CLEANSING AND RESTORATION IS COMING TO THE BODY OF CHRIST.

Wake up and God bless 🙏
Are you a slave unto sin or God’s bond-servant unto righteousness ?
God’s people must renounce the “we are just sinners saved by grace” mentality, because that’s exactly what Satan wants.
The devil wants to paralyze us with the sin mentality, whereas the Spirit of God declared that we are more than conquerors through Christ, as we surrender to God’s transformation work in our lives to conform us to the likeness, the divine nature and the image of Christ, the Firstborn Son amongst the dead.
Have we not been revived and made alive as born-again children of the light, and does light not have the ability to expose and expell all the darkness in us as we continue to willingly yield ourselves to be influenced by the light?
Who is declared to be the head of all principality and power?
The problem is that for too long, Satan has kept the body of Christ ignorant to the victory that is given to us in Christ as we learn to grow up and mature in Him, unto the measure of the full stature of Christ.
Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, and what is the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
19 And what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power,
20 Which He performed in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in that which is to come:
22 And has put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is His body, the fullness of Him that fills all in all.
Is it not written in Ephesians 4:
The New Man
17 This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, 18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; 19 who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
20 But you have not so learned Christ, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
Problem is that far too many of God’s people are blinded to the work of the Spirit through the administration of the power of the cross to completely uproot, demolish and destroy the seed of the serpent in us, which is that old man that is corrupted by various lusts through the nature of the fallen earthy Adam.
It’s imperative that we understand the hope of His calling beloved, which is the fact that the ministry of the cross, does not just save the sinner, but also crucifies the sinner, after that we’ve been saved.
If you resist the power of the cross to slay the sinner in you, after that you’ve been born-again unto salvation, how then can you claim to be a new creation, created after God in true righteousness and holiness?
Can I erect a new building and structure unless I first uproot and demolish the old rotten foundation?
Jesus spoke of the process of repentance, transformation and obedience to become the temple of His habitation in Luke 6, and notice how He explains that first He must be allowed to dig down in us, if we want to discover and receive Him as a sure foundation.
Build on the Rock
46 “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? 47 Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. 49 But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”
The Father spoke to me about this process of allowing ourselves to be emptied out and He said “allow Me to work. If you allow Me to penetrate your depths, then you shall find that I’ve become your sure foundation. If you really want to become a completely new creation, then first allow Me to destroy your old fleshly foundation.”
Then Jesus declared to me – “yes in Me and through Me everything does become new, but first you must be willing to let go of the old man and it’s fallen ways.”
If we want to stay ignorant and stubbornly persist in our old ways by wanting everything to go our way and if we ignore the call to lay ourselves down for His sake, then the reality and the glory of the newly created heavenly man, shall only be a mystery, because we choose to stay carnal.
Are you compelled by the love of Christ or are you ignorant of the passion and the jealousy of His love which seeks to capture your entire heart and own and rule the seat of your affection?
Are you compelled by the love of Christ, or are you imprisoned and still enslaved by the lustful cravings and desires of your fallen sinful nature?
If we live selfish, fleshly and self-centered lives, after that we’ve been saved, how then will we ever be captured and delivered by the power of His love ?
He died for me so I might learn to die to myself and live for Him. This is the reality and difference between the born-again nominal fleshly Christian who are only saved by grace, who camp on the level of salvation and those who become the bride of Christ because they follow Him on the road of the cross, through laid down lives.
This is the meaning of 2 Corinthians 5: 14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
16 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
20 years ago the accuser and adversary of God and His people appeared to me in a night vision and as I awoke out of that vision, Satan stood in my room with his evil satanic presence.
Then he declared to me “i am stronger than your God, my kingdom shall prevail.”
I knew Satan was lying but I didn’t fully understood exactly what the serpent was saying.
Then many years later God gave me the understanding that what the devil tried to convince me off, is that as long as we are here on earth, he will always have a hold on us through the weakness of our sinful flesh.
It must therefore be understood that the throne of satan operates through our fallen fleshly man, and it’s exactly what God says in the following scripture – Romans 6:6 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? 3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, 6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. 7 For he who has died has been freed from sin. 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
12 * Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.
13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
From Slaves of Sin to Slaves of God
15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! 16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? 17 But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. 18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.
20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.
Notice in the above scripture, that the grace of God that brings salvation through the ministry of the cross must also be allowed to change us unto godliness and holiness.
We’ve been set free from sin beloved which means that the work of the cross was a complete work of redemption, not just unto salvation, but also as we yield ourselves willingly to the discipline of the Father we might share in His holiness and bring forth fruit befitting true repentance, which speaks of those who have been brought to maturity.
We cannot stay immature born-again babies. After the gift of salvation is realized, we are challenged by the Father to press on to know the Lord and to make our calling and election sure. We cannot camp at the foot of His mountain in the outer court realm of the Kingdom of heaven, which is the realm of paradise.
He is the high and the lofty One, who’s habitation is holy and the Father’s desire is to bring many sons to glory, which speaks of the upward call of God in Christ as we follow Him in obedience in the way of the cross unto the death of self, which is that former way of life lived in the flesh. Glorification unto manifested sonship becomes the portion of those who allows themselves to conformed to the pattern and the standard of Christ, after that we have received the gift of salvation.
Isaiah 57:15 For thus says the High and Lofty One
Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:
“I dwell in the high and holy place,
With him who has a contrite and humble spirit,
To revive the spirit of the humble,
And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
16 For I will not contend forever,
Nor will I always be angry;
For the spirit would fail before Me,
And the souls which I have made.
17 For the iniquity of his covetousness
I was angry and struck him;
I hid and was angry,
And he went on backsliding in the way of his heart.
18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him;
I will also lead him,
And restore comforts to him
And to his mourners.
19 “I create the fruit of the lips:
Peace, peace to him who is far off and to him who is near,”
Says the Lord,
“And I will heal him.”
We’ve been called to run the race set before us to win the crown 👑 of the overcomer, as we live to pursue God into His mountain. This road and way to Zion, the habitation and tabernacle of His Presence, is revealed and declared in Hebrews 12.
The Race of Faith
12 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
The Discipline of God
3 For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. 4 You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. 5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:
“My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
6 For whom the Lord loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”
7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? 8 But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? 10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. 11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Renew Your Spiritual Vitality
12 Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.
14 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: 15 looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; 16 lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. 17 For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.
The Glorious Company
18 For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest, 19 and the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words, so that those who heard it begged that the word should not be spoken to them anymore. 20 (For they could not endure what was commanded: “And if so much as a beast touches the mountain, it shall be stoned or shot with an arrow.” 21 And so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, “I am exceedingly afraid and trembling.”)
22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.
Hear the Heavenly Voice
25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire.
Notice that we follow Him through the principle of the cross and the Gethsemane cup of self denial into the mountain of God, which is the Kingdom of God and mountaintop realm of His PRESENCE of HIS POWER and of HIS GLORY.
Glorification unto manifested sonship is wrought into us through the discipline and the shakings of the Father.
Of these shakings, the Father spoke the following to the late Jim Hammerly – ”
I AM Making YOU Shake Proof!
Posted on 23 February 2016 by Jim Hammerle
I never shake things without a purpose. If I shake you, it’s only to shake loose anything in your life that cannot stand in My presence.
Anything and anyone with sin, flesh or deception will completely self destruct if they even approach My full holiness. You cannot in your flesh even look upon Me and live, Exodus 33:20. My love for you, does not want you to be shaken to death, in this worldwide shaking I have begun.
I AM going to shake things so hard, that men you thought were invincible, will die of heart attacks, Luke 21:26 but I AM attempting to make you shake proof! I need to shake things extremely hard, because religion has bound multitudes tightly in self righteousness.
I also know that kingdom citizens are unshakable and will remain strong and steadfast during the worst of the shaking, Hebrews 12:25-29.
They have allowed Me to put them through the fiery trials, burning out all the fleshly shakable materials. Every trial I put you through is to make you unshakable when everyone around you is having heart attacks. If you continuously wear My full armor, then you will remain unshakable.
Most western believers are very easily shakable, having little armor and a lot of flesh. If you are wise, you will welcome the trials with joy, James 1:2 because any flesh in you that has not been crucified by trials, will be shaken loose in the great shaking, but the shaking will be extremely unpleasant and your heart could fail.
My Spirit is working night and day to convince you to voluntarily die to your flesh, but some are avoiding the trials, and ignoring His convictions and will end up being badly shaken. Yet others of you are preparing your hearts, so you will not be shaken and you will be a beacon of hope, during the worst of the shaking. Father wants none of His children to be shaken, but neither does He want them consumed when they approach His holiness.
My Grace never overrules My Father’s holiness! My blood covers any sin that you have confessed, repented of, and turned from, but all fleshly works, deception and hidden sin, will ignite as it approaches My Fathers holiness for He is a consuming fire, 1 Corinthians 3:13-15.
All trials are because Father loves you so much and wants you to be able to approach Him without fear.
My grace allows you to come boldly unto the throne of grace, that you may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in your time of need, Hebrews 4:16. But grace will not cover unrepented sin, therefore, you will not be able to approach My Father with it and survive, Romans 6:15-16.
You can be sure that My Fathers love is doing everything possible to either, burn out or shake off anything that keeps Him and you apart! How your flesh dies is up to you My child, but I want you to be part of My unshakable Kingdom! (end of quote)
Matthew 3: 10 And now also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire:
12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the barn; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
He called us to become a living sacrifice and a completely newly created heavenly man, created after God in true righteousness and holiness.
Psalm 24 also declares that we must be purged from the dross and deception of our former sinful ways and be purified in our hearts if we desire to stand in His holy place.
3 Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord?
Or who may stand in His holy place?
4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol,
Nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive blessing from the Lord,
And righteousness from the God of his salvation.
