An End Time E-Mail Message From . . .
Behold, I set before you this day, Life and Death, Blessing and Cursing
The Overcomers are being prepared for the leaving of the Kingdom of Death and Curses for the crossing over into the Kingdom of LIFE and Blessing.
I have tried to make it clear that we are presently in a "Prep School" getting us ready for the "Kingdom University" in Zion. This is PART SIX of a new series of E-Mails that is a vital part of that preparation. We are being given a crucial decision. That is, to choose Life, or choose Death. The choice is ours, the work to get us there is Jah's .
This is the 19th of a series of e-mails that is not only revealing what stage we are presently in as Overcomers, but to set the stage of where we are going. If you have not read the first 18, you might not get the correct perspective, or full impact of what is being said here. If you would like to read those first, CLICK HERE.
The purpose of this series is to show how we ARE delivered from the curse of the law, and how we ARRIVED at that destination. The further I go, the more I see that needs to be taught, for most are totally confused on that process, and in being confused, realize not the depth of the confusion from which they suffer.
I want it known that what I write has nothing to do with whether or not we are "saved." I was "saved" long before what I know today, and just as saved then as I am today. I am writing to the Overcomers, and this is a different breed. My articles are NOT for the "Outer Court" carnal "Christians" which only build another Tower of Babel, but for those being drawn into the "Inner Chambers" of the Temple being built without hands.
It had been my intention to begin relating about "The Word of Our Testimony" with this lesson. As I pondered it, matters of greater importance came into my mind, and I realized that without some understanding of what life it is that we LOVED NOT unto the death, we will not understand the first two precepts of the Overcoming unto "and they overcame."
If what I write and publish sends people to try and do of themselves after the "outward man" to accomplish what is taught, then I HAVE FAILED MISERABLY!!! I have stated many times that it is not my intent to cause people to adhere to what is taught here by their own works, their own efforts, for that will only FAIL, and FAIL EVERY TIME. All of history thoroughly proves this.
Quite to the contrary, what is published is published to show what it is that He is working in us, AND HOW He works it in those who will submit unto that working, and BELIEVE HIM FOR THAT WORKING. It is He who builds the Temple, and places each person where He wants them. Unless He is the one doing the building, doing the changing in us, it is all ineffective works, and nothing more than narcissistic conceit.
Pride will inevitably blossom freely when we achieve something of The Word in and by ourselves, and in that pride, be BLIND to the profusion of evidence that shines forth to show us how we are STILL FAR SHORT of His Glory. The most blinding of all matters IS PRIDE, and is this part of the ego that will justify all of its ways by its own works. Then to cover up the pride of accomplishment, or the pride of knowledge, the person puts on a false humility to make themselves look humble. It is all the natural sickness of the fallen nature that has created every sect of "Christianity", every Tower of Babel, even to this day. It is the cleaning up of the OUTWARD MAN while inside he is STILL FULL OF DEATH.
How many come into a Truth, exercise themselves to it, and then condemn everyone who is not doing as they do??? Somehow, it escapes them of how long it took them to be brought into what they are now seeing, and how long they went through life without seeing it, let alone conforming to it. Yet still, they condemn all others who do not have their wonderful enlightenment, and do not readily accept it with rejoicing. It is the being "as a god" which secretly says: "HEAR YE ME!!!" And if you don't: "YOU ARE LOST!!!"
Now, with this narrow minded perspective, presuppositions form mental patterns in the mind, and with that, ALL scripture is only seen in the Light of those presuppositions. Such a one is now LOST to seeing the scripture that would correct them, as they are blinded by their well instituted erroneous carnal minded reasoning, and the narrow mindedness of their OWN revelations controls them and their destiny.
That same fallen nature that wants to be "as Jah" is in us ALL folks, and it must be LOVED NOT UNTO ITS DEATH!!!
As you read down through this, remember that our FIRST PRECEPT in the overcoming is "BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB", and certainly NOT by our works of the Holy Law. Never leave that ground. Especially not while you are learning ANYTHING NEW.
We will NEVER be able to stand against the "Accuser" until we are WELL ESTABLISHED IN THIS PRECEPT. It is by Jahshuah'S LIFE that we overcome, and certainly NOT BY OURS. Our life is so "great and righteous" that we "LOVED IT NOT UNTO THE DEATH"!!!
There was ONLY ONE who was perfect in His life before Jah, and that was the "Lamb without blemish." No other individual could have been made the sacrifice for us, and have given His Blood that cleanses us from all unrighteousness. Certainly NOT by yours or mine.
In making that sacrifice, he became the Life Giving Vine from which we are to draw our life. As we draw from this vine from WITHIN, the outward man will perish so that we are renewed day by day.
Because it is His Blood that causes us to be righteous before Jah, the "BLOOD" shuts the mouth of the Accuser, believe me. Not only from the spirit realm, but from those he uses to speak forth such accusations against you in this realm.
Many are floundering under the attacks of the enemy, and realize not that it is the enemy that is causing them to flounder. Get these principles RIGHT, and you will come to a realm of PEACE IN HIM that you may have not as yet experienced.
The Difference Between The New Covenant, and The Old
As much as we have learned, and as much desire as we may have to please Jah, I still see much misunderstanding of how The Holy Law is infused into the New Covenant.
The Swing of The Pendulum
There is a swing of the pendulum in the minds of people concerning Law in relation to Grace. One swing says that we must keep it for righteousness, and if we do not keep it, then we are not saved. The other swing says we are under grace and therefore the Law is no longer of any value to us. Both sides are wrong!!!
Even though the latter covenant unfolds from out of the former, there is a BIG difference between the "Old" Covenant given to Moses, and the "New" Covenant under which we now reside. What is that difference???
Jeremiah was given great revelation as a Prophet concerning our day, and of the New Covenant which would bring to pass the matters of which he saw. He gives us the BIG DIFFERENCE between the "Two Covenants" in chapter 31,
Behold, the days come, saith Jah, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith Jah: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith Jah, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their SUPREME (most high authority) MAGISTRATE (administrator of law), and they shall be my people
Notice that it says "NEW"!!! New means that it is a NEW THING, and being NEW, it has NOT BEEN DONE BEFORE. What is that NEW thing??? That the Law would be written on our hearts, put in our INWARD PARTS.
Where is the heart??? Is it external??? Hardly! It is WITHIN!!! This is INTERNAL. Since this NEW thing was to be INTERNAL, then the "Old" of necessity would had to have been EXTERNAL. The "Old" was EXTERNAL, and the "New" INTERNAL.
Therefore, the "Old" was the external works of the Law, while the New is that which springs forth from WITHIN. The more you understand this, the bigger the difference between the two becomes. In that difference is the "having to do something", and the "wanting to do something." We have no trouble with doing what we WANT to do (except for the fleshly man in us who fights against it), and plenty with what we HAVE to do. We are being told that the Jahshuah is THE END OF THE LAW for the "having to do", and delivering us unto His life in us that causes us TO WANT TO, if indeed we are receiving our life from Him being in us.
Oldness of the Letter vs. Newness of Spirit
Jeremiah tells us what The New covenant will be, and the Apostle Paul most apply explains it to us. How did he obtain that explanation??? Because he LIVED IT, and taught what he learned BY THAT LIVING. If anyone understood the walk with Jahshuah, it was the Apostle Paul. We have not yet understood our walk until we understand what Paul was saying. If you have a hard time understanding him, don't feel too bad about it, for even Peter had difficulty with that understanding. ( 2nd Peter 3:16 ) (Why did he have a hard time. Because he was infused with external works from an early age.) And, how many who do not understand what he taught have so crudely abused what he taught, even to the accusing him of being a liar and false prophet. Anyone who does not understand Paul has not yet walked the walk of an Overcomer, nor do they have any understanding of the New Man within, as opposed to trying to straighten out the fallen nature through works. The fallen nature cannot be straightened out. It must die so that Christ might live, and there is NO OTHER WAY to walk the true walk.
Prior to his conversion, Paul was raised up in the study of the Torah. Because of his adroit knowledge of the Law, he thought he was following Jah by trying to wipe out the followers of Jahshuah. He was so energetic in his endeavor, that all believers feared him greatly.
That in itself should warn us that just because we know the Law by the natural mind, it does NOT mean we are following Jah. We can in fact be doing EXACTLY OPPOSITE of what we should. Why is that? Because of the carnal mind that sees things backwards. Before his conversion, Paul had the natural understanding in the "oldness of the letter", but lacked the "Spirit." Instead of joining with the believers, he was DOING EXACTLY OPPOSITE of what he should, and was OUT TO DESTROY THEM!!! Can you imagine the repentance that went on in him when he walked into that Light??? No wonder he called himself the "chiefest of sinners."
This he did until he was knocked down on the road to Damascus. Then HIS EYES WERE OPENED to Jahshuah, and THAT CHANGED HIS LIFE. It took him from one track on to another. He went from the "Oldness of the letter", to being changed from within in NEWNESS OF SPIRIT. It was a total turn around, and only one who has experienced such a change can identify with such an event. Then, one who HAS been knocked down and had his eyes opened will find out that it is all but impossible to fellowship with one who has not.
There is also a big difference between knowing about Jahshuah and His Sacrifice, and SEEING HIM. Once He is seen "in spirit", a person is NEVER THE SAME.
As Paul said in Romans 7,
"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...................
For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that I do. ...................
For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me (I want to do what is right, righteous); but how to perform that which is good I find not.
..................For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
Notice first of all that he does not just say that we are delivered from the Law, period. There is MUCH MORE that he says in context with this statement. How many want to quote that part of the verse and ignore the rest of the story???
Make no mistake about it people. We ARE delivered from the Law in the OLDNESS of the letter. Why? So we can serve in NEWNESS OF SPIRIT. In the NEW MAN WITHIN, Jahshuah, who is our Vine of Life.
Paul recognized our problem CLEARLY. He also KNEW THE ANSWER. What is that??? His WORK IN US through the development of our NEW MAN, Jahshuah WITHIN!!!
O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank Jah through Jahshuah Messiah our King.
Anyone know what he is talking about??? If you are honest with yourself in HIS LIGHT, then most assuredly you do.
I publish what I do knowing that He is planning to work these matters in us, but most assuredly NOT for people to try and comply through their own fleshly efforts. How and when He changes each person into His Image is HIS business, and certainly NOT MINE, or anyone else's.
The Vine of Life
The 15th Chapter of John is one of those chapters that says plenty. If we just walked in the understanding of what Jahshuah sets forth in this discourse, we would be far ahead. I am only going to point out a few matters to further a thought pattern that we must reside in. It would be well for you to read the entire chapter, and give it some serious thought before Him.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot........cannot.......... cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye (bear fruit), except ye abide in (and receive life from) me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing!!!
If a man abide NOT in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
We are being clearly told that we of ourselves, by ourselves, and through ourselves CANNOT bring forth fruit, and therefore CANNOT DO ANYTHING TO PLEASE JAH of ourselves. What we try to do of ourselves has the SENTENCED of DEATH upon it. It will all be accomplished by HIS WORK IN US, by the life of Jahshuah coming forth in us, OR it is worthless. Not only worthless, but has the sentence of a judgment upon it. Any attempt to bear fruit of ourselves apart from Him is being a COUNTERFEIT BRANCH, and will be BURNED IN THE FIRE!!! And, it matters not how good the counterfeit looks. As I keep saying, it is NOT what we are doing, but WHO IS DOING IT!
He is also telling us how we receive from Jah correctly. First, the asking comes by "abiding in Him", meaning we receive our life as a branch from the vine. Secondly, HIS WORD must abide in us. If we are receiving our life from Him, and His Words are residing in us, we then will ask from out of that which is inspired by this life. How much do we ask expecting to receive that comes forth from our natural mind apart from His life in us??? Will it work???
Jahshuah did ONLY the will of Jah, and certainly NOT His own will. Therefore, the promises involved with "asking" to "receive" have nothing to do whatsoever of what we in our own mind apart from the vine want to receive. The only question then becomes, what is the life coming forth, and what are the Words of Life that come from, THE VINE of Life? Whatever they are, not only should they rule our prayer life, but THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY, our JUDICIAL EVIDENCE in overcoming Satan.
We are born receiving from a wicked vine. Jahshuah died to deliver us from that vine, that tree of Death which speaks death constantly, unto the Tree of Life by residing in Him and HIS WORDS. His Words are SPIRIT and LIFE, while Satan's Words spoken by us are nothing but fallen flesh and DEATH.
We speak from the abundance of our heart. The abundance of our heart comes from the vine in which we reside. Which vine will we reside in??? And, what is the result received from each one in which we choose to reside? Curses or Blessings?
One is what we do of ourselves from out of the Tree of Death, the fallen nature, and the other is what we do because of the Life Force that comes from the Tree of Life, the TRUE Vine of Life, Jahshuah.
I ask, did He die in our place to leave us under the curse of The Holy Law, or did He die to deliver us FROM that curse??? What IS HIS WILL FOR US in this regard??? Which then should be controlling the WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY??? Who is it that wants to hold us captive to the curses by what we speak, Jah or SATAN??? If anyone would think that it is Jah, then I ask that individual, why did He sacrifice His Son to deliver us from those curses???
We are being taken by Jah into the Kingdom, and the Kingdom Life. The more we understand this taking and how He works it, the easier it will become to follow Him. To walk in this path. To come by the way we knew not.
We are plainly told that it is impossible to please Jah but by faith (not by works), and everything comes to pass in our life that IS of Him ........ BY FAITH, and that faith is believing for the Life of the vine to give life to we the branches of that vine..
Our ancestors did not fail to enter into the Kingdom because of the lack of works. They did not enter in because of UNBELIEF!!!
But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
This judgment fell AFTER they had received the Law, and WAS a Judgment inaugurated BY The Law. The Law in fact COMMANDS US to believe Jah, and walk in the faith of what we believe.
Jah does NOT CHANGE. What was true in that day is STILL TRUE TODAY. We will enter into Zion BY FAITH, or we will NOT ENTER. Hear me well.
Putting on works after the "form of godliness" can be easy to a degree, and certainly fool people with the "fig leaf cover up." However, the exercising of faith to bring forth the Life of Jahshuah in us will put us into a war zone that at times can seem unbearable!!! Anyone who has so entered will understand what I write, while one stuck in works to enter into the Kingdom NEVER WILL!!! We will enter in BY FAITH, and that by HIS LIFE feeding us, or we will never enter.
THE WAY OUT OF BABYLON
It IS my desire to show people the way OUT of meaningless fleshly works, which is in reality the way out of Babylon, and into the meaningful way of FAITH. Fleshly works will bring forth BONDAGE. Faith brings forth LIBERTY. And that IS a precept of The Holy Law.
Is obedience important? Oh, yes it is. But, let me tell you something folks, we will in NO WAY become "obedient" by our own initiative. The only "obedience" to any part of His Word will come by His work in us, and without that work, we would still have NO obedience to Him in us.
We need to get our walk in a proper perspective, or the enemy will drive us crazy in trying of ourselves to comply with everything that IS of Jah, for it is just too overwhelming for us to even consider, let alone accomplish. It is NOT OUR obedience, for we are sold under sin, and run to sin continually. The being obedient is receiving HIS being obedient from the life in the vine.
This includes even these lessons on faith. He is the author and finisher of our faith. We cannot even have HIS FAITH without Him working it in us, and that by His dealings through life's experiences. I teach the principles, but you will NEVER be able to walk in them except HE WORK IT IN YOU. And that folks, is between each of you and Him individually. No one is your creator, but the Creator Himself, and only HE KNOWS what He is doing with each individual to bring them to where HE wants them. He does NOT bring anyone to where WE WANT them to be, but to where HE WANTS them to be. What He is doing with OTHERS is really none of our business. What IS our business is what He is doing with we ourselves. We will be of NO VALUE to ANYONE until He has done His work in us for what He plans to use us.
The Natural Man and His Ego
When the dealings come through the enemy’s attacks to devour, the man’s ego is being demolished. He goes from seemingly “doing well” to where he suddenly sees he can do nothing right. It is as though he has suddenly found himself "impotent", as his wonderful manhood has been smashed to bits.
This causes an unbelievable upheaval to the psyche as the fallen ego becomes totally unfulfilled, and because of that upheaval, there is no way that he can behave as he should. All of the misconduct of the flesh will surface, and be exposed. The fire to purify the gold has increased to surface the impurities, and oh, how they will surface.
We all have insecurities and frailties in our personality, and they now rush into plain view. The ego, while going to its death, fights with everything it can to “save its life”, and in that, want to blame everything and everyone but himself for what is transpiring. It is a dreadful place for the man.
Being brought to the “I am nothing, Jahshuah is everything”, is a very humiliating cruel trip through the cross, but a man will never come to such a place without going through this very experience. If he goes through successfully, he will come to the place where he forgets all others regardless of what they may have done to cause such a situation as he may find himself, and walk into the Light to see his own shortness.
It matters not to me what lofty position a man may have, he must
be brought to the place where he sees his failures as a man, a father, a
husband, and a provider, for in the flesh, in the natural man, dwells NO GOOD THING.
This is both humiliating and liberating at the same time. He is at once delivered from having faith in himself, to
having faith in Jah to make the needed changes, to cleanse him of the
unrighteousness in him, if.........IF he is willing to walk into the Light
to see what he is in himself apart from Jahshuah’s nature functioning
When such a time comes
upon us, we make a very serious decision.
He will strengthen our decision, and do a work in us if we decide
correctly, but we still must make a decision, and a grave one it is
indeed. Instead of trying to
resolve the situation by our own hands to "save our life", the
being obedient unto the death will be submitted to. We can “save our
life”, or “GIVE IT UP” unto its death, and we are ALL brought to
the point of making that decision in one way or another, and mostly many times over.
Do not expect to be applauded when this path is chosen, for NO ONE will understand what is happening with you any more than they did when Jahshuah went to His death.
There are many areas of the fallen psyche's misconduct that we are unable to put off. It is just too strong for us. We are then put on a path that totally wears us out in its activity. This "wearing out" brings us to the place where we can no longer tolerate participation with it, and it is then that the needed change takes root to flourish into fruit. This IS how the "fruits of the spirit" are given life in us from the Vine of Life.
Friends of Job
We, as Overcomers, will be put in many difficult situations so that we can learn HOW we "overcame." Not only will we go through much turmoil in our own mind, "Job's Friends" will certainly be sent to us to give us THEIR advice of what we should do to "save our life." Oh, how some can come with advice concerning "Faith", and how we should exercise it to gain the victory. They will say things like, "You should pray thus and so", or "just believe such and such", and everything they can think of that YOU should do, and if you do not do as they say, well, you are just bad ground. Anyone know what I am talking about???
In every case in advice that is of error, they will be tempting you to "be as Jah", and control EVERYTHING and EVERYONE involved with your difficulty by an erroneous exercising of a "FAITH" that is nothing more than a hidden use of WITCHCRAFT. We cannot go around ruling everyone's life and make decisions for them through the exercising of witchcraft spoken forth by "prayer." Everyone must make their OWN decisions.
We are NOT the Supreme Magistrate that maps out our OWN life, our calling, or anyone else's, and the path that gets us or them to that destiny. Jah IS, and there are times when our faith is to be as Jahshuah's when He WENT TO HIS DEATH. We are to LET the same mind that was in Jahshuah, BE IN US.
There are times when we can do something to alleviate the situation, but there are also times when the still small voice within will say, "This is my way, walk ye in it", and then it is we realize the path we must walk that leads through the cross. In EVERY CASE in such a time, the difficulty has been allowed to come to affect changes in us by freeing us from the contaminations of the fallen nature by the working of His Death in us.
There are times when we will walk that path willingly, and there will be times when our ego is so strong, we will go kicking and screaming. Our soul, the real us, is residing between flesh and spirit. The flesh will fight against the right way, while the spirit will guide us into, and strengthen us for the right way. Here is where the rubber meets the road, and the real us will make a very crucial decision. Go with Jah and give up our life, or with the flesh to save it.
When I speak of "Men of Valor", I am NOT talking about men with strong willed macho ego's. I am talking about men such as Jahshuah, who was obedient unto the death, even the death of the cross. There is no greater love or courage expressed than the man who can give up his life so that others might be saved. The Strong willed will only be concerned for themselves, and therefore SAVE THEIR LIFE in any way they can think of rather than go through the exposure of the contaminations within their personality. The Men of Valor will have the intestinal fortitude to take up their cross and follow Jahshuah unto the DEATH of their strong will, and all of their defects. Saving our life is the easy road while giving it up takes us into cruel humiliation of our fallen "manhood."
For those called into the overcoming, what is born of the flesh WILL DIE. Only that which He has worked in us is LIFE, life in us, and that for eternity, for it comes from the LIFE OF THE VINE, Jahshuah's nature which is our NEW MAN.
The Self-Will MUST DIE
Most who read the pages on this web site do have a zeal for Jah. Because of that, when something of Him and His ways are revealed, the person can with great exuberance begin to apply it to their life. If it is being applied by the self-will, that "will" cannot sustain it. The day will come when the exuberance will run out, and the individual will no longer be able to do what they had so much exuberance to do.
This even includes the natural drive in a teacher to teach. Until the natural drive DIES, and they receive the LIFE to teach from the vine, they should NOT BE TEACHING, as they will only bring forth branches to be burned.
Natural exuberance will eventually die, and when it does, the enemy will attack the mind of that individual to accuse them before the Throne of Jah of "falling away", and those accusations will ring loud and clear in the mind of the individual. No, they are NOT falling away. They are going through the "death of self effort" so that Jahshuah can take that ground and become life in them.
There are people who under the stresses of the walk that will fall away, but they will have no conscience in that regard, for the "seed" is gone. On the other hand, where one is experiencing a correct death to the ego, the conscience will be ever active, and will know they are short, and want deliverance.
Jahshuah used the natural life cycle of plants to describe our walk on a number of occasions. Even as The Feast Days come in such an order, so do we experience a seed time and watering, the giving of fruit unto the harvest, and then the death of winter pruning which brings forth new life in the spring.
Unless a seed fall to the ground: John 12...............
The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground AND DIE, it abideth ALONE:
but if it DIE, it bringeth forth much fruit.
He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
When a seed falls to the ground, it will NOT bring forth a plant which shall bear fruit unless the OUTER SHELL is broken by the growth of life sprouting within. It NEVER comes from the outer shell. The trials come to BREAK THE OUTER SHELL.
2nd Corinthians 4:
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
Knowing that he which raised up King Jahshuah shall raise up us also by Jahshuah, and shall present us with you. For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of Jah.
For which cause we faint NOT; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2nd Cor. 3:18
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the King, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by........BY.......BY the Spirit of the Supreme Magistrate.
This IS the life we LOVED NOT unto its death!!!
So, what life is it that we LOVED NOT unto the death??? The OUTWARD MAN and all of his works, whether they appear to be works of righteousness or not. There is NO GOOD THING IN HIM, but is filled with contaminations that putrefy everything he does. This outward man, regardless of how successful he may appear, or even as righteous as he may appear, IS A TOTAL FAILURE, regardless of what it looks like to the natural mind. Oh, how many LOOK SO GOOD, and oh so sweet and humble, while in fact are totally in the EXTERNAL WORKS of the OUTWARD MAN. There is very little if any of Life in them, nor do they have ANY understanding of the "New Man."
We OVERCAME HIM (Satan) by THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY, and WE LOVED NOT OUR LIFE UNTO THE DEATH.
All of this is an already established fact, established AS SO IN HEAVEN by the one who spoke it. This IS the Word that is to reside in us, as it has been spoken over us BY THE CREATIVE WORD THROUGH FAITH.
A part of this established fact is that we loved not our life unto the death. That is PAST TENSE FOLKS. It is ALREADY SO in heaven. We are in true reality, already dead in Him that He may live in and through us IN HIS VICTORY. This is LIFE, and IS HIS WORD coming forth from the Vine of Life, Jahshuah. It is the "I am.......I AM.......I AM crucified with Christ, nevertheless I LIVE, YET NOT I, but Christ LIVETH IN ME", coming to pass BY FAITH. It is believing what does not appear to be so AS SO, because IT IS SO IN SPIRIT (in heaven), and is to be stood in AS SO, until it BECOMES SO.
When the enemy comes, this MUST BE OUR GROUND TO STAND UPON, for there is NO OTHER WAY TO OVERCOME!!! However, do not take this stand glibly. This kind of faith will loose that which is necessary to do the work in us to make it so. It is "the way we have not known", and I can tell you, our ego WILL NOT SURVIVE the trek.
When the path unfolds, remember to start out in your faith by having FAITH IN JAH. This I cannot emphasize enough. He is the ONE IN CHARGE. He has designed the path, and will take you through to HIS VICTORY, HIS SOLUTION in every trial, and they are designed to work for our good in bringing forth HIS LIFE IN US. Have FAITH IN HIM to do the work, and TRUST HIM to get it done, and that regardless of what this natural realm circumstances scream at you. He is redeeming us to the Kingdom, and the Kingdom Life, and believe me, there are NO CURSES IN THIS REALM!!!
As Paul said in Romans 8:
And if children, then heirs; heirs of Jah, and joint-heirs with Christ; if......IF.....IF so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are NOT worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for.......
the manifestation of the sons of Jah.
P. S. I do apologize for NOT being in a position where I can answer emails. Please be patient with me and do not take it personally. I do read all that come in. It is just not possible to answer.
