The glory of the New Covenant. 

By Pieter Kirstein

 

 

The Torah will condemn you unless you turn away from the law and embrace Christ as the Messiah for the Torah testified of Him. 

 

 

John 5:38  And you have not His word abiding in you: for whom He has sent, Him you believe not.

 39  Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me. 

 40  And you will not come to Me, that you might have life.

 41  I receive not honor from men.

 42  But I know you, that you have not the love of God in you.

 43  I am come in My Father's name, and you receive Me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive.

 44  How can you believe, who receive honor one of another, and seek not the honor that comes from God only?

 45  Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuses you, even Moses, in whom you trust.

 46  For had you believed Moses, you would have believed Me: for he wrote of Me.

 47  But if you believe not his writings, how shall you believe My words?

Jesus came to fulfill the writings of Moses and the prophecies of the old prophets because they testified of Him. Christ never commanded us to go back and obey and live according to the laws of the old covenant. 

There are many who completely misinterpret what He said in 

Matthew 5

 

 

17  Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill. 

Again, this simply means that when He showed up that which Moses wrote about Him and that which the prophets spoke about Him was fulfilled. 

Then He went on to say 

 18  For truly I say to you, until the heaven and the earth shall pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no way pass from the Law until everything has been fulfilled.

 19  Therefore, whoever shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever shall practice and teach them, this one shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

 20  For I say to you, unless your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, there is no way that you shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Which commandments was He referring to in the context of what we've been reading?

Jesus came to declare a new covenant with new laws as our new High Priest. The Pharisees sinned and stood against what Moses wrote about Jesus and rejected the words of the prophets and so rejected God's plan of redemption through His Son.

This is why Jesus said in

John 5:38  And you have not His word abiding in you: for whom He has sent, Him you believe not.

 39  Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me. 

 40  And you will not come to Me, that you might have life.

46  For had you believed Moses, you would have believed Me: for he wrote of Me.

 

 

Jesus never instructed us to go back to obey the laws of the old covenant because since He came there is no redemption found in the old covenant and it's laws. Redemption and justification is only found in Him. 

 

 

The old covenant and it's laws served as our schoolmaster and temporary tutor to point and bring us to Christ and to declare that we are sinners in need of a Savior.

 

 

Galatians 3

22  But the Scriptures have shut up all things under sin, so that by the faith of Jesus Christ the promise might be given to those who believe.

 23  Now before faith came, we were guarded under law, having been shut up unto the faith that was yet to be revealed.

 24  In this way, the law was our tutor to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith.

Jesus showed me an open vision to explain what this means. I saw the laws of the old covenant as sheep dogs running towards, chasing and guarding these sheep 

 .

Then the sheep dogs chased the sheep into the loving arms of Christ the Shepherd and then Jesus said to me that now that His sheep are with Him, they no longer need the dogs to bark at them for He has silenced them. 

 

 

Romans 3

20  Therefore, by works of law there shall no flesh be justified before Him; for through the law is the knowledge of sin.

 21  But now, the righteousness of God that is separate from law has been revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets;

 22  Even the righteousness of God that is through the faith of Jesus Christ, toward all and upon all those who believe; for there is no difference.

 23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

 24  But are being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus;

 

 

Galatians 2

 16  Knowing that a man is not justified by works of law, but through the faith of Jesus Christ, we also have believed in Christ Jesus in order that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by works of law; because by works of law shall no flesh be justified.

 17  Now then, if we are seeking to be justified in Christ, and we ourselves are found to be sinners, is Christ then the minister of sin? MAY IT NEVER BE!

 18  For if I build again those things that I destroyed, I am making myself a transgressor.

 19  For I through law died to works of law, in order that I may live to God.

 20  I have been crucified with Christ, yet I live. Indeed, it is no longer I; but Christ lives in me. For the life that I am now living in the flesh, I live by faith—that very faith of the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me.

 21  I do not nullify the grace of God; for if righteousness is through works of law , then Christ died in vain."

 

 

Galatians 3

 

10  For as many as are relying on works of law are under a curse, because it is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things that have been written in the book of the law to do them."

 11  Therefore, it is evident that no one is being justified before God by means of works of law; because it is written, "The just shall live by faith."

 12  Now then, the law is not based on faith; but, "The man who practices these things shall live in them."

 13  Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree")

 

 

Also it must be understood what was further meant when Christ declared in Matthew 5

 

 

 

19  Therefore, whoever shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever shall practice and teach them, this one shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

 

 

Which commandments was He referring to?

 

 

His new laws and higher standard of righteousness proclaimed as our new High Priest in His sermon on the mount. 

 

 

Hebrews 7

11  If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchizedek, and not be called after the order of Aaron?

 12  For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

 

 

Matthew 5

 

 48   Therefore, you shall be perfect, even as your Father Who is in heaven is perfect."

Luk 6:40 The disciple is not above his master, but everyone who is perfect shall be like his master. 

 

 

Joh 17:23 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. 

 

 

Under Christ's priesthood we receive the ministry of the supernatural transformation work of the Spirit of God by which we grow from glory to glory until we become exactly like Jesus. Human effort through the works of the law that was written on tablets of stone perfected no one.

 

 

2 Corinthians 3

 

 

 5  not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves, but our sufficiency is of God;

 6  who also has made us able ministers of the new covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit makes alive.

 

THE MINISTRY OF MOSES BROUGHT DEATH UNTO CONDEMNATION UNDER THE OLD COVENANT, WHEREAS THE MINISTRY OF CHRIST UNDER THE NEW COVENANT GIVES US HIS LIFE. 

 

 

 7  But if the ministry of death, having been engraved in letters in stone was with glory (so that the sons of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses because of the glory of his face), which was being done away;

 8  shall not the ministry of the Spirit be with more glory?

 9  For if the ministry of condemnation is glorious, much more does the ministry of righteousness exceed in glory.

 10  For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excels.

 11  For if that which has been done away was glorious, much more that which remains is glorious.

 12  Then since we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech.

 13  And we are not like Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the sons of Israel could not steadfastly look to the end of the thing being done away.

 14  (But their thoughts were blinded; for until the present the same veil remains on the reading of the old covenant, not taken away.) But this veil has been done away in Christ.

 15  But until this day, when Moses is read, the veil is on their heart.

 16  But whenever it turns to [the] Lord, the veil shall be taken away.

 17  And the Lord [is] that Spirit; and where the Spirit of [the] Lord [is], there [is] liberty. 18  But we all, with [our] face having been unveiled, having beheld the glory of the Lord as in a mirror, are being changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Lord Spirit.

 

 

Through the ministry of the new covenant the Spirit of God transforms His born-again sons and daughters into the likeness and the image of Christ. 

 

 

Perfection could never be attained through the old covenant laws and human effort, so Jesus came to introduce us to a better way. 

 

 

Remember He came as our new High Priest giving new laws under a new covenant and this is why we see Him override the laws given to Moses and introducing a much higher standard. 

 

 

Matthew 5

 

 

21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 

22 but I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. 

27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 

28  but I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

 

 

Christ's Spirit power ministry must be understood that its an inward transformation work of grace because the laws under the old covenant could not change the sinful hearts of men because of the nature of the fallen Adam working inside of us. 

 

 

Romans 8

 

 

8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh (old covenant dead works)

 

 

but after the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4 that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

 

 

This means that God's Spirit working in us will perfect that which the law could not do. We are not under the legalistic performance of the old covenant, but undergoing loving supernatural transformation through the ministry of the Spirit under the new covenant and through the disciplinary work of the Father, until we bring forth the fruits of righteousness, which is the life of Christ being worked out in us unto maturity and manifested sonship. 

 

 

Hebrews 12

 

 

5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 6 for whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye 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 unto the Father of spirits, and live? 10 For they verily 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 seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

 

 

Romans 5

 

 

14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. 15 But not as the offense, so also is the free gift. For if through the offense of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offenses unto justification. 17 For if by one man’s offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 

 

 

18 Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 20 Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: 21 that as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

 

Through the new covenant we are now married to Christ and have been divorced from the old covenant and it's legalistic performance laws. Those who seek to pervert the new covenant under Christ by returning to the laws of the old covenant are committing spiritual adultery. 

 

 

Romans 7

 

 

7 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? 2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. 3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man. 

 

 

4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. 6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

 

 

The old covenant laws was but a shadow of the better reality found in Christ. We do not worship shadows. We worship and follow Christ because He is the image and the fulfillment of the law. 

 

 

Collossians 2

 

13 And you who were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh (your sensuality, your sinful carnal nature), [God] brought to life together with [Christ], having [freely] forgiven us all our transgressions,

14 Having cancelled and blotted out and wiped away the handwriting of the note (bond) with its legal decrees and demands which was in force and stood against us (hostile to us). This [note with its regulations, decrees, and demands] He set aside and cleared completely out of our way by nailing it to [His] cross.

15 [God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross].

16 Therefore let no one sit in judgment on you in matters of food and drink, or with regard to a feast day or a New Moon or a Sabbath.

17 Such [things] are only the shadow of things that are to come, and they have only a symbolic value. But the reality (the substance, the solid fact of what is foreshadowed, the body of it) belongs to Christ.

 

 

Through the ministry of the Spirit and the born-again experience,

He now transforms us through power of His truth proclaimed through the ministry of Christ until we become exactly like Jesus. 

 

 

Please understand beloved that this new you which is given to you in a seed form at the new-birth has absolutely no desire to fellowship with darkness and its godly nature, is pure and sinless. 

 

 

Remember it is incorruptible seed from the living God and the life and nature of God is programmed into His seed. This is also why a person's desires suddenly changes at the new-birth because as a born-again child of God your desires are to please the One from whom the seed was taken. 

 

 

This divine living seed has nothing to do with the sinful nature of the fleshly Adam. Its desires are contrary and this is why the moment we become born again children of the Lord we enter a spiritual wrestling match because the new man wants to serve God and the old man wants to serve sin. 

 

 

Each one of these incorruptible seeds that came from God himself has the full potential to become a fully mature son of God. This is why we read in Rom 8:29 For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 

 

 

But to be brought to maturity we will have to learn how this plan develops and unfolds by the revelation of the Holy Spirit. I love what God said to me about this fact, "You were a success story before you were born because your book is already written in heaven. My word does not stop in the Bible because it carries on in you. Now you will discover it as your life unfolds in Me.

 

 

First the word becomes flesh within you through your obedience and relationship-building with the Word (Jesus), next you become filled with the Holy Spirit because the Word and the Spirit are one and the Spirit manifests the life of the Word in you. Then you become the voice and the operation of the Word by the power of God through the leading of the Holy Spirit. In God you become the authority.”

 

 

This is the glory and the power of the new covenant wrought out in us. 

 

 

Hebrews 10

15 And also the Holy Spirit adds His testimony to us [in confirmation of this]. For having said,

16 This is the agreement (testament, covenant) that I will set up and conclude with them after those days, says the Lord: I will imprint My laws upon their hearts, and I will inscribe them on their minds (on their inmost thoughts and understanding),

17 He then goes on to say, And their sins and their lawbreaking I will remember no more.

18 Now where there is absolute remission (forgiveness and cancellation of the penalty) of these [sins and lawbreaking], there is no longer any offering made to atone for sin.

19 Therefore, brethren, since we have full freedom and confidence to enter into the [Holy of] Holies [by the power and virtue] in the blood of Jesus,

20 By this fresh (new) and living way which He initiated and dedicated and opened for us through the separating curtain (veil of the Holy of Holies), that is, through His flesh,

21 And since we have [such] a great and wonderful and noble Priest [Who rules] over the house of God,

22 Let us all come forward and draw near with true (honest and sincere) hearts in unqualified assurance and absolute conviction engendered by faith (by that leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), having our hearts sprinkled and purified from a guilty (evil) conscience and our bodies cleansed with pure water.

 

 

It's an inward transformation work of grace wrought out in us by Spirit of God. 

Ezekiel 36

 

 

24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 

 

 

27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. 28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. 29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you. 

 

 

30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen. 31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations. 32 Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord God, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.

 

 

33 Thus saith the Lord God; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded. 34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by. 35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited. 36 Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the Lord build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the Lord have spoken it, and I will do it.

The “Fine Line”

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 

 

The Lord was talking to me about the "Fine Line" between heaven and earth. And I saw the two sides of the Line blurring into each other as Heaven touched earth. (The Third Heaven touching the earth realm) For this is the Time of the Knowledge of God's Glory covering the earth as the Waters cover the sea. God's people are breaking through the occupied areas of the devil and his minions (the second heaven) and he is finding nowhere to run! As Heaven touched earth when Jesus came so it is still happening, Beloved. YOU are the Giants in the land! And He has empowered you with the Holy Spirit to BRING DOWN Heaven to earth and to OCCUPY until He comes again! It is a Glorious Day!! It is time for BREAKTHROUGH! 

 

 

"Beloved. When you pray, pray and declare this, " My Father,  Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven" Oh yes, My Child. The enemy would have you believe that he has power over you and over the earth but know this, he is a trespasser in your territory. You are seated with Me in the Heavenly Realms in the Spirit. Behold, I give you My Authority over all the power of the enemy. 

 

"I have made you a king and priest unto your God. A king rules, a priest brings God to the people. You are My Ambassadors of Light. Do you not know that you yourselves are My Temple, and that My Spirit dwells in you? As such, I have given you dominion over the Works of My hands. You carry the Kingdom of God everywhere you go. I have crowned you with Glory and Honor. I have made you ruler of the works of My Hands; I have placed everything under your feet.

 

 

"No matter how dark it looks, My Light still destroys the darkness. The Son of God was manifested to destroy the works of the devil. YOU are the Giants in the land. Not the devil and his demons. 

 

 

GREATER is He who is you than he who is in the world. You are the Giants of Faith! As My Glory encompasses the heavens so My Glory is invading the earth. Arise, and Shine, My Child, for your Light has come. The enemy is on the run!

 

 

"The Glory of the LORD rises upon you. My Glory is invading the earth, the Knowledge of My Glory shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. It is the Time of Heaven touching earth. The Bright Morning Star is shining in all His Glory and the darkness cannot comprehend it! 

 

 

"The Line is blurring between Heaven and earth! In Me, you live and move and have your being. Occupy until I come! Declare and decree a thing and it shall be established and My Light shall shine upon your ways! No power can stop it. Be in agreement with Me, My Child! The Symphony of your Prayers is Lighting up the Skies! Through you, many shall hear My Voice, like the ROAR of many Waters and the earth will SHINE with My Glory!" 

 

 

 

 

SECOND HEAVEN, THIRD HEAVEN, EARTH REALM:

 

 

 The second heaven is not called such in Scripture; rather, the existence of the second heaven is inferred from the fact that the Bible speaks of a “third heaven,” and, if there is a third heaven, there must be a first heaven and second heaven, too. The idea that more than one type of “heaven” exists is confirmed in Hebrews 7:26, which says that Jesus, our High Priest, is “exalted above the heavens”; in other words, Jesus is in a heaven beyond other heavens.

 

 

The third heaven is mentioned in 2 Corinthians 12:2. Paul says, “I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows.” In verse 4, Paul equates the third heaven with “paradise,” the realm where God dwells. If the third heaven is God’s dwelling place, then we could consider the second heaven to be inbetween, the realm of the stars; and the first heaven to be earth’s atmosphere, the realm of the birds and clouds.

 

 

Paul speaks of Satan as “the prince of the power the air” (Ephesians 2:2) and demons being “the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12) (2nd Heaven)  (Bibletools) 

 

 

 

 

"In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.11  Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. 13 And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen." Matthew 6:9 

 

 

"For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the GLORY of the LORD as the waters cover the sea." Habakkuk 2:14

 

 

"And I saw the GLORY of the God of Israel coming from the east. His Voice was like the ROAR of many waters, and the earth shone with His glory." Ezekiel 43:2

 

 

"What is man that You are mindful of him, or the son of man that You care for him? 5 You made him a little lower than the angels; You crowned him with glory and honor. 6You made him ruler of the works of Your hands; You have placed everything under his feet," Psalm 8:4

 

 

“O Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, who is enthroned above the cherubim, You are the God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth." Isaiah 37:16 

 

 

"For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also His offspring." 

Acts 17:28 

 

 

"Do you not know that you yourselves are God’s temple, and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?" 1 Corinthians 3:16 

 

 

"What agreement can exist between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will dwell with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be My people." 2 Corinthians 6:16

 

 

"Little children, let no one deceive you: The one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as Christ is righteous. 8The one who practices sin is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the very start. This is why the Son of God was manifested to destroy the works of the devil. " 1 John 3:7

 

 

“Because of God’s tender mercy, the Morning Light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace.” Luke 1:78-79

 

 

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:5

 

 

 “For God, Who said, ‘Let there be light in the darkness,’ has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.” 2 Corinthians 4:6

 

 

“This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5

 

 

“Receive this truth: Whatever you forbid on earth will be considered to be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you release on earth will be considered to be released in heaven. Again, I give you an eternal truth: If two of you agree to ask God for something in a symphony of prayer, my heavenly Father will do it for you. For wherever two or three come together in honor of my name, I am right there with them!" Matthew 18:18-20 TPT

 

 

“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the Root and the Descendant of David, the Bright Morning Star.” Revelation 22:16

 

 

“The Breaker goes up before them; They break out, pass through the gate and go out by it. So their King goes on before them, And the LORD at their head.” Micah 2:13

MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB

 

 

 

*       Unity does not mean sameness. It means oneness of purpose.

 

____...."Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, Coming down upon the beard, Even Aaron's beard, Coming down upon the edge of his robes. It is like the dew of Hermon Coming down upon the mountains of Zion; For there the LORD commanded the blessing - life [love, truth, revelation, wisdom righteousness] forever".... Psalms 133:1-3 NASB

            

____...."Can two walk together, except they be agreed [have a concurring "revelation" of the Father's Will]".... Amos 3:3 KJV

 

"concur" - to agree; be of the same mind [in this case the Mind of Christ]; be in one accord;

"The Gates of Victory Are Now Open!" 

By Lana Vawser

 

 

 

 

I heard the Lord say: "THE GATES OF VICTORY ARE NOW OPEN!”

 

 

I sensed that the things which the enemy has held back – the things that the enemy has worked hard to keep God's people from (their place of victory) – the Lord is now exposing those areas. Right now there is a significant breakthrough taking place; a significant increase in acceleration and momentum for breakthrough VICTORY is upon you. The areas where the enemy has attempted to keep you from the victory that is yours in Christ are now being dismantled. The Lord is showing Himself strong as your great defender, and you will rise again victorious.

 

Do NOT shrink back. The enemy is doing all he can to keep you caged and keep you from the place of manifested victory, but his attacks are now being disarmed and dismantled. The Lord is releasing specific strategy and divine wisdom on how to combat the attacks that are coming against you, moving you further into the victory that is already yours in Christ.

 

The reason why the battle has been so strong is because of the great MAGNITUDE of breakthrough victory that is upon you. You are moving further into your land of victory! Do not shrink back; do not cower in fear, but STAND. Now is the time to stand.

 

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand." (Ephesians 6:10-13)

 

The gates of victory are now opening over your life, over your family, over cities and over nations. Many of you are on the brink of the greatest victory that you have ever seen in your life.

 

A New Birthing

 

As the gates of victory swing wide open, releasing the breakthrough and triumph of Christ in your life in greater ways than you have ever seen, I saw a NEW and SUDDEN BIRTHING taking place – a birthing of what God has placed within you and set up for you. 

 

So much of the battle has been over the seed of destiny and breakthrough that the Lord has placed within you and destined for you. A greater manifestation of the abundant life that was given to you in Christ Jesus (John 10:10) is going to burst forth in greater ways in your life; a great awakening of life and resurrection power is being released.

 

You Won and You Win!

 

I had a vision and I saw Jesus standing over every area in your life where you have been believing to see the breakthrough and victory of Christ manifest. The atmosphere was pregnant with the truth of the Gospel that Jesus is Lord; a sense of the victory of Christ; and the truth that all things that are out of alignment with what He has said and decreed are now bowing before the name of Jesus Christ.

 

As I was watching this vision, I saw Jesus' Blood pouring out all over these areas that needed breakthrough victory. He said, "I paid for this! YOU WON and YOU WIN!" I saw the words "YOU WON and YOU WIN" being written over every circumstance and every situation in His Blood. These things will be OVERCOME by the power of the Blood of Jesus.

 

"They conquered him completely through the Blood of the Lamb and the powerful word of His testimony..." (Revelation 12:11)

 

Taking communion is CRUCIAL right now, and I want to remind you of that again. Taking communion is a VITAL KEY to breakthrough and seeing the manifest victory of Jesus in your life right now.

 

"I Will Show You What I have Written Over Your Life”

 

I heard the Lord say: "I will show you what I have written over your life.”

 

The enemy has been working so hard using fear, intimidation, fogginess, confusion and discouragement to keep you from "seeing" and "hearing" clearly what the Lord is saying right now. The Lord is going to show you what He has written in the book of destiny over your life and your family members' lives.

 

In the battle, many of you have been dealing with fear and other things, but the Lord will continue to reveal and speak His truth and destiny over your life. The fogginess and the smokescreens will begin to clear, and you will see, with greater vision and insight, the plans of God for you and your family members' lives in the new season we are in.

 

"You Will Write About This”

 

I heard the Lord say, "You will write about this. You will write about this victory." And I saw the scribe anointing falling heavily upon many of you. What you are walking through now, the battles that you have been fighting, YOU WILL WRITE ABOUT THIS.

 

Right now, there are new books, songs and writings being birthed within you, which you will write about as you walk through this battle. The treasures, the wisdom, the insights that you are receiving from the Lord in this time – you will write about these things, and many will be encouraged, receiving great impartations and breakthroughs from the huge breaker anointing that will rest upon these books.

 

Watch for a Significant Increase of Favor

 

The Lord showed me that through these attacks many of you have been facing, the enemy is working hard to keep you caged. The Lord spoke to me, "The enemy has tried to cage many, but I am now releasing greater favor upon them.”

 

Watch for a significant increase of favor. Watch for significant promotions and the Lord opening doors you could never have dreamed of. It will become very clear why the enemy has been trying so hard to cage you as the Lord continues to open great and mighty effectual doors and place greater favor upon you.

 

This is not about trying to make anything happen or striving. It's about resting in God, surrendering to Him and watching HIM set things up, open doors and opportunities and strategically placing you in places you could never have placed yourself in.

 

A foreboding spirit of fear has been attacking many of you about your future, but the Lord is decreeing: "Get your hopes up, for there are mighty and wonderful surprises upon you. This is the season of DIVINE SUDDENLIES! You are in your turnaround place. Watch MANY things shift and change, overnight! My plans for you are GOOD and to prosper you and not to harm you but to give you a hope and a future (see Jeremiah 29:11).

 

"I am doing what only I can do! Fear has tried to squash and cage you, but My power will ASTONISH YOU!"

The Gospel Is for Everyone

By Greg Laurie

 

 

 

LISTEN  

 

 

"After this I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hand."

—Revelation 7:9

 

 

When you’re about to drive somewhere, you get into your car, start it, put it in gear, and you’re on your way. You don’t keep turning the ignition again and again once the car has started.

 

In the same way, the Day of Pentecost was like an explosion that set the Church in motion. It was a one-time event, but there are many things we can learn as followers of Jesus from what happened on this important day.

 

Acts 2 tells us that “on the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place. Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them. And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages, as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability” (verses 1–4 NLT).

 

We never read of the phenomena that happened on the Day of Pentecost happening again, such as the mighty rushing wind and the flames of fire on the heads of the apostles. These were special, one-off occurrences.

 

People from around the world were gathered in Jerusalem, representing many languages. And then the outpouring of the Spirit took place on the Day of Pentecost. Everyone heard God glorified in their language.

 

The people there were just like us. They had no earthly power, no money, no political authority, and no status. But they had Jesus, and Jesus had them. And God was about to change the world with this group of 120 people who had gathered together in His name.

 

What happened on the Day of Pentecost serves as a reminder that the gospel is for all people, tribes, and languages. The gospel is for everyone.

I don't Want You To Simply Draw From My Kingdom

By Russ Walden

 

The Father says today; I don’t want you to simply draw from My kingdom. I want you to walk and live, move and have your being in My kingdom. I’m not looking for an occasional visitation. I have provided for you a place of abiding habitation. Beloved, I have provided you a place of perpetuity where others have only briefly entered in. I want you not only to enter into My glory but to take up residence and send in a permanent change of address!

 

I am giving you full access to the glory that others have only borrowed from to bring miracles and breakthroughs. I am not a God that withholds. I am not a God that restrains, taunts, or denies you in any way. Denial and rebuff are the work of the enemy and are not in My nature. 

 

Enter in today, says the Father. Enter into permanent habitation and full entitlement in My kingdom, for that is your portion – that which I paid for by the death of the cross and ratified in the glory of the resurrection.

FIRE BY NIGHT 

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]

 

        ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 

 

 

 

ONE OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF TRUE SPIRITUAL ENVIRONMENT

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*____Many of those in a position of "delegated authority" have "stifled" [through controlling and self-exaltive practices] the spiritual growth of those I have entrusted them with. Because of this, I shall now begin to remove from their care those they have "kept down" - and I shall reestablish them with My true delegated authorities in the true spiritual environment that is necessary for them to both enter into and fulfill their precious Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ.

 

"stifle" - to quell, crush, or end by force [in this case, through the counterfeit forces of the kingdom of darkness]; to suppress or withhold [in this case, keep God's children from receiving the Covenant blessings that are theirs, in Christ];

 

____...."But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders [hypocrites]! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces; for you neither enter yourselves, nor do you allow those who are about to go in to do so".... Matthew 23:13 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."He [Jesus] began saying to His disciples first of all, 'Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known'".... Luke 12:1-2 NASB

 

____Many times, one needs to guard themselves [stay very alert] in places where you would think that they would not have to - such as in the presence of other children of God. This is one of the characteristics of true spiritual environment [both individually - in the "inner chamber" and corporately]: that one can rest fully in the Presence of the Lord.

 

        ...."Be of sober [spirit,] be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in [your] faith".... 1 Peter 5:8-9 NASB

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

____Father, we thank You and praise You for the establishment of true spiritual environments throughout the earth in this final hour - true, corporate spiritual environments that will provide a place for Your precious children to enter into Your Presence and, then, go out from that holy Presence to mightily demonstrate the reality of Your Kingdom to a lost and dying world. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
