THE SUFFERING IS WORTH IT ALL.
By Pieter Kirstein
Watch for His glory shall SUDDENLY be revealed as He comes to inhabit the sons of God.
Yeshua declared to me “THE LIFE OF MY SPIRIT IS COMING TO YOU”
Him coming to the sons equals the manifestation of the sons in both male and female for we become like Him because He is our identity. We are called to walk as Jesus walked.
TO TRULY KNOW HIM IS TO BECOME ONE WITH HIM IN VISION, DESIRE AND PURPOSE.
1 John 2:4 He who says, I have known Him, and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoever keeps His Word, truly in this one the love of God is perfected. By this we know that we are in Him.
6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk even as He walked.
Want to talk about bringing forth a harvest of righteousness through glorified manifested sonship?
Then follow Christ THROUGH THE CROSS as a humble servant, serving in the kingdom as a functioning heir.
God the Father wanted a family, so He planted a SEED within this earth, His Son. We are the fruits of that sacrifice. Now He continues the law of multiplication through those that becomes His bride, through those who honors the covenant requirements of death to self. We must abandon ourselves to walk in His ways, for the life of Christ cannot be found within the fleshly fallen nature of man. Christ illustrated the pattern into the glorified life of a manifested son within himself and we are called to walk in the same through the work and operation of His Spirit.
John 12:23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour has come that the Son of man should be glorified.
24 Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone; but if it dies, it brings forth much fruit.
25 He who loves his life shall lose it. And he who hates his life in this world shall keep it to life eternal.
26 If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there also My servant shall be. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.
We see this upward calling in Philippians 2:5 For let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,
6 who, being in the form of God, thought [it] not robbery to be equal with God,
7 but made Himself of no reputation, and took [upon Himself] the form of a servant, and was made in [the] likeness of men.
8 And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself [and] became obedient unto death, even [the] death of the cross.
9 Therefore God has highly exalted Him, and has given Him a name [which is] above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of heavenly ones, and of earthly ones, and of ones under [the] earth;
11 and [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to [the] glory of God [the] Father.
A resurrection into the immortality of the life of the Son shall be the portion of the manifested sons.
He died for me so I can die to myself and live for Him.
YES IT’S A PAINFUL PROCESS BECAUSE THE OLD FLESHLY MAN IS STUBBORN, UNRULY AND CONTRARY TO GOD BUT OH IT’S SO GOING TO BE WORTH IT WHEN HIS GLORY APPEARS IN ME AS HIS HOLY TEMPLE.
God spoke about the work of the cross within His sons by the Spirit of burning by which He shall cleanse the place of His dwelling – Malachi 3
1 Behold, I will send My messenger, and He shall prepare the way before Me: and the Lord, whom you seek, shall suddenly come to His temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom you delight in: behold, He shall come, says the LORD of hosts.
2 But who may endure the day of His coming? and who shall stand when He appears? for He is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:
3 And He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and He shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.
…the sufferings of the work of the cross is only for a season then comes the glory.
1 Peter 4
1 Since therefore Christ has suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin;
2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
3 For the time past of our life will suffice us to have done the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in licentiousness, lusts, excess of wine, reveling, carousing, and abominable idolatries:
4 In which they think it strange that you run not with them to the same excess of dissipation, speaking evil of you:
5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the living and the dead.
1 Thess 3:3 That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for you yourselves know that we are appointed unto this.
4 For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and you know.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
8 Be not therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
9 Who has saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death, and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
IT’S THE BAPTISM BY FIRE THROUGH THE WORK OF THE CROSS THAT RESULTS IN THE GLORY OF MANIFESTED SONSHIP
Romans 6:3 Know you not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His death?
4 Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death: that just as Christ was raised up 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 with Him in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection:
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that we should no longer serve sin.
7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
8 Now if we are dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him:
9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dies no more; death has no more dominion over Him.
10 For in that He died, He died unto sin once: but in that He lives, He lives unto God.
Christians must not complain when they are not one that will be taken in the coming resurrection shift into glorified life and manifested sonship when they have not placed themselves on the altar of the cross through demonstrated love to become a living sacrifice.
LIP SERVICE IS OF NO VALUE TO GOD
