A few days ago, I was listening to a message….
During the message I felt life go out of me.
A little leaven, (law) truly leavens the whole lump.
Please read scripture letting the Holy Spirit speak to your heart. Lay everything, everyone else aside but Him.
So much of what we preach today is taken out of context. I see this over and over especially in the area of the flesh and the Spirit. Usually a scripture in Romans 7 (Written to those who knew the Law, jewish people. Written about how Paul was while he was under the law), taken out of context used to “PROVE” that we still have a sin nature. That we still war against the flesh that we…. You fill in the blank.
Romans 8 speaks very clearly to us that the mind governed by the flesh is death.
Flesh (sin nature) equals death.
The mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
Spirit equals Life and Peace
God sent His own son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering and so He condemned sin in the flesh in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be FULLY MET (not partially met, not positionally met, FULLY MET) in us who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
If we still have one foot in law and one foot in grace, that verse leads to greater questioning because we then vacillate day in and day out as to whether or not we’re living according to the Spirit or living according to the flesh…
Pure craziness is the result my friend. Constant self focused thinking. The epitome of religious schizophrenia is the result:
Today I “think” I was in the kingdom of the flesh at 7:45pm until 8pm
Then at 8pm I was back in the Spirit
Then at 8:15pm… Where the HELL am I?
We take that one scripture or a handful of scriptures and spend our whole life wondering what realm we’re in at any given moment.
If we would just read the scripture within the whole context, with the Holy Spirit.
The result would be LIFE and PEACE.
That place of repose we were talking about…
You know, the, ‘It is finished place’.
His lovely place of peace and rest.
Look at this: Closely
Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires.
Those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
Mind governed by flesh is death
Mind governed by Spirit is life and peace
Mind governed by flesh is hostile to God…
Those who are in the realm (KINGDOM) of the flesh cannot please God
God said He transferred us OUT of the kingdom of darkness, (flesh, sin)
INTO the kingdom of light (life, peace, righteousness).
We are not kingdom hoppers!!
We don’t hop in and out of realms.
If it was you and I who made this divine transfer, (like it had ANYTHING to do with us other than believing what Jesus did), then certainly we could go in and out of those realms at any given moment.
But it wasn't us was it, it was Him. God of the impossible.
Roman’s 8:9 is the clincher for me:
YOU HOWEVER ARE NOT IN THE REALM OF THE FLESH, BUT ARE IN THE REALM OF THE SPIRIT, iF INDEED THE SPIRIT OF GOD LIVES IN YOU.
And if anyone does not have the SPIRIT of Christ, they DO NOT BELONG TO CHRIST.
So here in my mind, if I say I am in the flesh or go back and forth between the flesh and the Spirit, I am saying somedays I belong to Christ, other days I don’t…
Yet Jesus told me He was able to fully save me…
Colossians 2:9-12 says:
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority. In Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision NOT PERFORMED BY HUMAN HANDS (God did it) YOUR WHOLE SELF RULED BY THE FLESH WAS PUT OFF WHEN YOU WERE CIRCUMCISED BY CHRIST having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised with Him through your faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.
The biggest argument that I see with this is but my experience PROVES I still have a sin nature.
Not according to God’s word. Not according to Colossians 2:9-12
Your WHOLE SELF ruled by the flesh was put off.
Flesh is equative to your sinful nature.
I am now, the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!
I will FOREVER remain in HIS Kingdom of the Spirit!
As my mind is renewed, not in the doctrines of men, but through HIS word, I am forever grateful of His ability to do the impossible in my life, in our lives as believers. Praise Him!
My dear friends, enter into His REST.
For HE has done great things!
IT IS FINISHED
I had this realization yesterday… That I’ve read God’s word for most of my life, under the old covenant… Reading it to, “find out what I should or should not do,” Instead of looking through the eyes of His new covenant with me. Who is He? How does he truly see me? I am seeing so much LOVE. He is such a loving Father.
There is an amazing scripture in Is. 28:9-29, I’ve highlighted some of scripture below, that stood out to me.
God’s word can quickly become a rule book, to do this, do that, a rule or process for this, a rule or process for that. A little here, a little there….
We so quickly make it into something that it was never intended to be…when HE is truly supposed to be our resting place of repose, (a state of rest, sleep or tranquility). Sounds pretty relaxed to me. Lol.
A place of, "It Is Finished." I have all that I need, I do not need strive to get something that I’ve already gotten because Jesus already got it for me.
Our Father is extravagantly in love with us. He delights in us and who we are. He’s given us all of HIMSELF, His righteousness, His purity, His Peace, His Joy, His LOVE, His delight in exchange for taking on all of our sin and then goes even further in that He doesn't even remember our sin anymore? WOW! (Col. 1:14, Heb. 9:22-28, 1Pet. 3:18)
In Song of Solomon 1, His words to us are, “you are lovely; you are so lovely like fine linen tapestry hanging in the Holy Place. You are his radiant one, his dearest one, You’re thrilling to Him and my personal favorite, you are marked by HIS redeeming grace.
Read below, ask the Father to speak to you, and this year focus on that place of rest, trusting HIM to be your place of repose.
This year I’m going to continue to read His word in a much different way after understanding this scripture.
I encourage each of you, to do the same.
Love y’all! Cin
“Who is it he is trying to teach?
To whom is he explaining his message?
To children weaned from their milk,
to those just taken from the breast?
10 For it is:
Do this, do that,
a rule for this, a rule for that[a];
a little here, a little there.”
11 Very well then, with foreign lips and strange tongues
God will speak to this people,
12 to whom he said,
“This is the resting place, let the weary rest”;
and, “This is the place of repose”--
but they would not listen.
13 So then, the word of the Lord to them will become:
Do this, do that,
a rule for this, a rule for that;
a little here, a little there--
so that as they go they will fall backward;
they will be injured and snared and captured.
14 Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you scoffers
who rule this people in Jerusalem.
15 You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death,
with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement.
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
it cannot touch us,
for we have made a lie our refuge
and falsehood[b] our hiding place.”
16 So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; 1Pet 2:6
the one who relies on it
will never be stricken with panic.
17 I will make justice the measuring line
and righteousness the plumb line;
hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie,
and water will overflow your hiding place.
18 Your covenant with death will be annulled;
your agreement with the realm of the dead will not stand.
When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
you will be beaten down by it.
19 As often as it comes it will carry you away;
morning after morning, by day and by night,
it will sweep through.”
The understanding of this message
will bring sheer terror.
20 The bed is too short to stretch out on,
the blanket too narrow to wrap around you.
21 The Lord will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim,
he will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon--
to do his work, his strange work,
and perform his task, his alien task.
22 Now stop your mocking,
or your chains will become heavier;
the Lord, the Lord Almighty, has told me
of the destruction decreed against the whole land.
23 Listen and hear my voice;
pay attention and hear what I say.
24 When a farmer plows for planting, does he plow continually?
Does he keep on breaking up and working the soil?
25 When he has leveled the surface,
does he not sow caraway and scatter cumin?
Does he not plant wheat in its place,[c]
barley in its plot,[d]
and spelt in its field?
26 His God instructs him
and teaches him the right way.
27 Caraway is not threshed with a sledge,
nor is the wheel of a cart rolled over cumin;
caraway is beaten out with a rod,
and cumin with a stick.
28 Grain must be ground to make bread;
so one does not go on threshing it forever.
The wheels of a threshing cart may be rolled over it,
but one does not use horses to grind grain.
29 All this also comes from the Lord Almighty,
whose plan is wonderful,
whose wisdom is magnificent.
This morning I woke up overwhelmed with shame. I hate that when something in our lives causes us forget who we are and slip back into a place that the Father never intended us to be. You see shame is a good indicator that we’ve slipped back under the law instead of standing in His grace.
I listened to Brene’ Brown this AM, TED talk on shame. She said there was something in her that wanted to remain under the radar, to remain small… Yep, that’s shame.
I’ve seen God’s greatness, but shame causes me to shrink back at times. Am I really good enough to speak, to minister to have God within me. Am I good enough to take Him to the world around me? He’s given me a message. 5 years worth of studying on His finished work, HE has been my teacher, but instead of speaking out what I know to be true, I sometimes cower because of negative words spoken over me by others and myself.. “You’re in grave error, who do you think you are? Why would God choose you?”
But you see, he has and I feel a bit like Jeremiah of late. I have so much to say and so very few places to share it… And sometimes even when I have places to share, I write myself out of the equation. Really what do I have that others don’t?
I’ll tell you what I have, what you have.
You have a story, you have a place, you have something that God placed in you for those around you. You have a way about you, you have a piece of HIS heart that is meant to be given to the world around you. Don’t let others around you speak in such a way that you doubt the gift he’s given you. This world is so full of RELIGION and so void of true grace and true righteousness. The kind of righteousness that comes from HIM alone and not your works. It’s the kind of righteousness that few people want because its a place of deep trust and belief in the Father alone, something that we have NO control over.
If I have my list of things to do and am a good little girl for the day, I can check it off and say, I made the mark. I’m in control. If it is His righteousness, then I have to trust that He indeed is able to do what I cannot, make me righteous, and I am no longer in control. Scary stuff.
Romans 10: 3 says For I know that although they are deeply devoted to God, they are unenlightened and since they’ve ignored the righteousness God gives, wanting instead to be acceptable to God because of their own works, they’ve refused to submit to God’s faith-righteousness. For the Christ is the end of the law. And because of him, GOD has transferred his PERFECT righteousness to all who believe.
So today my friend, rest in HIM. Rest in the PERFECT righteousness that your Father has transferred to you. (an amazing gift) You do not need to live in that place of shame, under the law, anymore.
You can trust in HIS finished work, that what HE did for you is truly enough for you to be all that HE created you to be.
MAY ALL OF HIS DREAMS COME TRUE FOR YOU!!
