God … so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great, wonderful and intense love with which He loved us, has made us alive together in fellowship and union with Jesus the Christ, the anointed of God and filled with His anointing power. Together with, at one with and united with the same anointing and FILLED with His anointing power. We don't have to ask for it. We don't need it imparted to us by the laying on of hands. It has already been done. We did not deserve it. It comes as part of the unsearchable and great mysteries of God's divine plan ~ just because He is so very much in love with us!
Out of God's great love for us, it was His joy to fulfill His plan and give us an awesome gift of His love … raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together in joint seating with Him in the heavenly sphere by virtue of one truth. The only thing that God saw in us (not sin or judgment or trespasses or shortcomings) was that we had His Son Jesus living in us! Our faith that made us partakers of Jesus Christ's salvation plan immediately placed us into a new life, a new creation. We are not adopted but are born into the family of God. We are God's own workmanship. We are His handiwork! HE made us, we did not make ourselves. We cannot boast of anything for it has all been given to us by God's unmerited favor!
The reason for this new birth is not just for us to avoid hell when we die, but by the amazing grace of God we have been born again to do the good works that God predestined (planned beforehand) for us. Each individually following the path that God has laid out for our lives. It is God's desire and His gift of love that we walk in His paths, living the good life which He has prearranged and made ready for us to live! (Ephesians 2:10 Amplified Bible) God does not qualify this truth by saying it is only available to those who live in America or Canada or the European nations. God does not say that this good life is for those who live in modern cities surrounded by material wealth. He makes it very clear that it is His desire, His plan, that we live a good life where ever and in whatever circumstances we find ourselves when we die to our old nature to live for Him!
By the precious blood that Jesus shed, we have been brought near to His plans. We belong to God's own household. In Him we have been reborn. In Him we have been empowered to prosper. In Him we have been given ALL things that pertain to life and godliness. In Him, God of love. Not just filled with love but God Who IS love! God's grace (favor and privilege) was granted and entrusted to us … unlimited, boundless, fathomless, incalculable and exhaustless riches of Christ. Wealth which no human being could ever possess outside of His love.
His love gift of our new birth have made us partakers with Him of His divine nature. We possess His mind ~ anointed to know, anointed to think, feel and experience the very thoughts of God! This is for the purpose of and in accordance with the terms of our salvation, that He has put into effect through the person of Jesus Christ, our Lord! In Jesus, because of our faith in Him as the first born Son of God, we dare to have the courage and confidence of free access (unreserved approach) to God our Father, with freedom and without fear.
Now, in seeing the greatness of His plan by which we have been eternally joined together with Christ Jesus, we know that our awesome Father, for Whom every family in earth is named, grants us out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the Holy Spirit Himself indwelling your innermost being and personally. That the anointing, through our faith in Jesus, actually dwells, settles down abides and makes His permanent home in your hearts! That our thoughts may be rooted deep in love and founded securely on this truth, God loves us and His love fills us with the fullness of Himself!
With this love living in our hearts we have the power and strength to know and experience this love – how vast, how unlimited, how immense and never ending is His great love toward and in us! And when we individually can rest in the assurance of His love, it is then that we are strengthened as His body, to know practically and through experience, this tremendous anointing of love that far surpasses mere knowledge, that we might be filled throughout His body with the fullness of God, in the richest measure of His divine Presence and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself. Christ in us, the hope of glory.
We need not seek unity through futile efforts of man. The scriptures clearly show us that the only way to unity is when we as individual will grasp hold of the truth that God has forgiven us, God's plan for our live is incredibly good and when we can truly believe and experience His love, we will altogether be joined and that unity will be the fullness of God Himself.
Believe in the love of God for you. Trust His ways as stated in His written word. There is only one qualification for us to receive His plan for our lives and that is simply to believe His Words. There is nothing we can do nor will we ever deserve this highest treasure of His love. This is the mind of God and the will of God. Allow Him to be God and let His plans be fulfilled in your life as you embrace these truths. We, as the body of Christ need you to know and experience His love. We need you to be walking the paths that God has divinely prepared for you to walk. We need you to be living the good life which He has prearranged and made ready for you to walk. God needs you. When we individually receive His grace and His fabulous gifts of undeserved love, we (In Him) are the structure of His glory. Joined, welded and bound together harmoniously. Continuing to rise and grow with each new child born to God's family. Together a holy temple in the Lord. In Him and in fellowship with one another we form a fixed abode, a dwelling place of God in, by and through His Spirit. (Ephesians 2:21,22)
Jesus said the eyes of the world are looking for unity of the faith. As they see our unity then they will know that we are Disciples of Christ. They will know that Jesus truly was the Son of God and they will know that His death and resurrection was not in vain. They will then know that He is alive and that He does rule and reign over His body. (John 17:21)
The harvest of souls in the world today waits for this one demonstration of God's love. It is found in us. I urge therefore to believe in this gift of God's love that goes way beyond Jesus death and resurrection. It is through the completed work of Jesus, that we, the body of Christ, the true and living church, is built. Allow yourself to be joined with all other believers by this one attribute … God's love shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. Let love dominate. Let love rule and decide all matters. Trust in God's love!
It is only when we have this revelation of God's love in us that the five-fold ministry so necessary in the corporate body today, can truly function. It is only when we individually allow God's love to rule and reign in our hearts that we will win the lost and the great end-time harvest will come in. Everything starts with the one commandment that Jesus gave to us "love God and love your neighbor as yourself". Until this commandment is obeyed, all works, all efforts and all else is worthless and of no effect. The Church that God is building, the Bride that He is preparing is pure, without spot or wrinkle. Only love can satisfy the heart of God. Only love can purify His people. To know His love for us, to be firmly assured and satisfied in His love and to love Him in return. To love God is to obey Him explicitly. To let His love flow through us, not in "sloppy agape" but in true compassion, in true lowliness of mind, in true brotherly love. "Let our lives lovingly express truth in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, and living truly. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, even Christ the Anointed One." (Ephesians 4:15)The world will then see something they have never witnessed before. They will see a people so filled with the love of God that His glory is radiating from each face. They will see a people that walk as one, living in true harmony and gladness of heart.
A church that marches forward in complete perfection. No one jealous or envious. No striving or bitterness. No competition. No unforgiveness. No one out of order. This has never been experienced on earth since the time of Adam and Eve. Now is the time for it to come forth. We must not allow the sufferings of Jesus to be in vain in our individual lives but must submit to the plan of God. It was God's idea to give us this unmerited, undeserved love. We dare not stand before Him and refuse to believe and refuse to receive it. Our belief in Jesus has qualified us to partake of His wonderful gifts of love. Walk the path that He has predestined for you. Live the good life in Him! Be united in the faith with His Body and let us march triumphantly all the way to heaven!
May you take these words to heart and meditate on them, searching the scriptures to judge the truths herein. Allowing the Holy Spirit to work truth in you, to the renewing of your mind. Rest for your soul. Have a light and easy week as you accomplish great things for His Kingdom!
