HIS BRIDE BECOMES ONE WITH HIM IN VISION, DESIRE AND PURPOSE AS ONE THAT IS LED, INFLUENCED AND INSPIRED BY HIS SPIRIT.
God calls you out of the world because His intentions, purpose and desire is to also take the world and it’s lustful influence out of you.
Then He goes even deeper. He challenges you in your own little selfish, selfcenterd world because He wants to take your world also out of you by which we are corrupted through the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of this life. This is the inner court realm and ministry of the Holy Spirit. Our souls are broken and wounded and in bondage because we come through a world of abuse and this is why we read in Romans 12:
1 I beseech you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
God calls us into agreement with himself and His ways because the ways of God are not the ways of man. After He saved us into the baby level of salvation, He challenges us to answer the upward call of God in Christ which is fruitfulness and Spirit maturity. This happens through the discipline and discipleship of the Father.
Hebrews 12:5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to children, My son, despise not you the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when you are rebuked of him:
6 For whom the Lord loves he chastens, and whips every son whom he receives.
7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chastens not?
8 But if you be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are you bastards, and not sons.
9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection to the Father of spirits, and live?
10 For they truly for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.
11 Now no chastening for the present seems to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to them which are exercised thereby.
Then when He has healed us in the realm of the soul and has taken us out of our fallen little world, He brings us through the veil into His world which is the Holy of holies and mountaintop glory realm of God’s manifest divine Presence.
Hebrews 12:22 But you are come to mount Sion, and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect.
This is that place spoken of in Psalm 91:
1 He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.
The same place is spoken of in Isaiah 57:13 but he that puts his trust in Me shall possess the land, and shall inherit My holy mountain;
14 And shall say, Cast you up, cast you up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling block out of the way of My people.
15 For thus said the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
THERE IS A PLACE IN GOD BELOVED WHERE SATAN CANNOT COME.
1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.
2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked together [with] unbelievers; for what fellowship does righteousness [have] with lawlessness? And what partnership does light [have] with darkness?
15 And what agreement does Christ [have] with Belial? Or what part does a believer [have] with an unbeliever?
16 And what agreement does a temple of God [have] with idols? For you are the temple of [the] living God, as God has said, I will dwell in them and walk among [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
17 Therefore come out from among them and be separated, says the Lord, and do not touch the unclean [thing]. And I will receive you
18 and I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says [the] Lord Almighty.
2 Corinthians 7
1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
