"But the hour is coming, and has already come, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for these are the worshippers whom the Father requires. "(John 4:23) God has not left us in darkness, but has sent His Light.
"We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose. "(Romans 8:28) We can ask ourselves questions, but with God, we don't ask questions, we accept. We no longer walk with our feelings or emotions. "Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. "(Galatians 5:24) "I have been crucified with Christ; and if I live, it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me" (Galatians 2:20) God wants us to be totally His. "We must be totally filled with the Holy Spirit. That is the point. Everything must be for the Lord. We must surrender totally to Him. "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. "(Romans 8:14) I no longer do what I want, I no longer control my life because I have given it to someone. That is the struggle.
"For the flesh has desires contrary to those of the Spirit" (Galatians 5:17). We must move from the human to the divine, from the carnal to the spiritual. We are in another dimension. As long as the flesh has the upper hand, you can't go anywhere. Christ in His Glory came down to earth to go to the cross only because we have sinned. It was our sins that disfigured Him. If Jesus had not had so much love for us, He would never have done this. We have the grace and privilege of knowing that death will come, but one day Christ will come and get us. We are aware that we must prepare ourselves because we have a place that God has prepared for us. We know that there is a departure coming, but you have to know where you are going to go? God is not a garbage man, He does not come as you want, but you must submit to Him. He is our leader.
We are the body and He is the head. The body is automatically subject to the head. The body cannot do anything unless the head commands it. If the head says nothing, the body does not move, the body says nothing. There is no one who can command, order the Lord. In the heavens and on earth there is no power that can change the Will of God. "For He says, and it happens; He commands, and it is done. "(Psalm 33:9) "What is man, that you remember him? And the son of man, that thou art mindful of him? "(Psalm 8:4) God can change time, history. He can change everything. God will restore, He will restore whether you believe it or not but He will. "And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you."(Joel 2:25) He will restore what was in the beginning: Love for the Word, respect for the Word. There will be true believers, true Christians. The word of the Lord came to me, saying, "What do you see, Jeremiah? And I said, 'I see an almond tree branch. And the Lord said unto me, Thou hast seen well; for I have kept my word, to do it. "(Jeremiah 1:11-12) We live in special times. Yet a little while, and the world will see me no more, but you will see me, for I live, and you will live also" (John 14:19). " The world does not see Him, but we see Him. "And behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. "(Matthew 28:20) He is ascended, He is at the right hand of God and He intercedes for us. Who will take us from His hand? No one, because Christ has already overcome. We are more than conquerors because He loved us first. "Where were you when I was founding the earth? Say it, if you have any understanding. "(Job 38:4) All is grace from the Lord. "Who is he that is foolish enough to darken my purpose? Yes, I have spoken of wonders beyond my comprehension, which I do not understand. "(Job 42:3) We must understand this. We desire victory in every area of our lives but God has already given us victory. The problem is not God because God has given everything. Whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and you will see it fulfilled" (Mark 11:24)." The solution and answer to all your questions, to all your problems is in one man: Jesus Christ. For us, God has found a ransom. All the problems that were to come, God had already solved at the cross of Golgotha. "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. "(Revelation 22:13) We are richer than you can imagine. We have something that the world does not have. You, as a believer, who had to receive it: "He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. "(1 John 4:4) Who then is in you? "As his divine power has given to us all things that contribute to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and virtue, which assure us of the greatest and most precious promises from him, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature" (2 Peter 1:3-4). Since Genesis, God had not spoken, but when Jesus came to earth in all His humility, God Himself came to earth. John had recognized this. "I am the one who needs to be baptized by you, and you come to me! "(Matthew 3:14) Jesus submitted to the Word of God. "This is the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. "(John 1:29) God opens a new page. Before sin was covered, but now He takes away sins. A lamb cannot be sacrificed without first being washed, sanctified. "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. "(Matthew 3:17) The God of heaven poured Himself into this Jesus. All the fullness of God was in Christ. Jesus is God. "All things were created through him and for him. "(Colossians 1:16) "She came to her own, and her own received her not. "(John 1:11) God came to tabernacle in a man and that man, nobody paid attention to Him. When God wants to do something, He does it in a simple way. Moses had become a waste, he was no longer needed in Egypt. At the age of 40, he wanted to go to his brothers. He saw an Egyptian hit one of his brothers so he killed the Egyptian. The next day, he took one of his brothers back because he was quarrelling. "And the man said, 'Who made you ruler and judge over us? Do you think to kill me, as you killed the Egyptian? (Exodus 2: 13-14) This is how he left to flee because he was rejected by his own people. Likewise Joseph, rejected by his brothers, was sold. And Moses and Joseph, God will always raise up. Never try to impress. Those who elevate you today, are the same ones who tomorrow will vomit you. Jesus was loved because He gave bread, He healed, but in front of Pilate, faced with the pressure, they wanted to crucify Him. It is easy to lean towards criticism because people have never been spiritual. You can only love your brother or sister if you are born again. "Having purified your souls by obeying the truth to have sincere brotherly love, love one another fervently with all your heart" (1 Peter 1:22) It takes this new birth. I will take away the heart of stone from your body and give you a heart of flesh" (Ezekiel 26:36). Know that in the last days there will be hard times... having the appearance of godliness, but denying the strength of it. Depart from such men. "(2 Timothy 3:1 and 5) God must mark the difference. "For what has righteousness to do with unrighteousness? Or what has light got in common with darkness? "(2 Corinthians 6:14) When God has spoken to you, light appears and you can no longer remain in darkness. You can do whatever you want, but the eagle cannot eat everything. Your nature has to come out. Your inner self must be awakened. God comes to get His sheep, not someone else's. A sheep is always attached to its shepherd. God knows His own sheep and he calls them by name. God is building His Church, so He must be the Shepherd of His sheep. Christ is the Head. The body cannot move without the head. Christ and the Church are compared as the woman and the man. As Eve was in Adam, so the Bride was in Christ. The Bride has always been the Bride. The Message does not make me the Bride but the Message shows me that I am the Bride. When God created Adam, He also created Eve. The head is very important for the Church because without the head, the Church cannot move forward.
If we are in Christ, we have the blessing because it is the perfect Will of God. When you are in Christ, you will never be the tail but always the head. Holiness does not begin today but it has always been, if we are in Christ. The Gospel is the Good News. No one has been worthy to open the book. The only one who can be exalted and glorified because He was worthy to open the book is Jesus Christ. God gives restoration so that the Church can return to what it was. When God created Adam, He gave him dominion. God never gave names to animals but the owner gives the name. Adam gave the name because he was the owner. One day we will leave, we will go home. We are strangers, we do not like it here. We have a home. "Who among you can add a cubit to the length of his life by worrying? "(Matthew 6:27) God takes care. You just take care of the kingdom’s business. Why worry, He has accomplished everything. What touches God is His own Word. When you hold the Word in your heart, He does not look away. Take care of God and He will take care of you. Everything we need, everything comes from God. He has not forgotten anything. Even if the trial lasts, I will always be in joy because God is alive and He will still act. "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. "(Hebrews 13:8) "I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will celebrate my God as long as I exist. "(Psalm 146:2) What God has given you is more than life and clothing, it is eternal life.
