Overflowing Wine

th standard God raised…

pattern flower with leaf03

theres a diff btwn livin in th NOW of Christ, and living by impulse…impulses are of th flesh, they move us by th spirit of this world…while Christ tells us to dont worry about tmw…to live in th day as He gives it, which is Him, most ppl plan far into th future…saving fa college for kids too young to be in any school…saving money against medical maybes as tho they know whats comin…th world system has its ppl always thinkin about tmw, and not a tmw full of joy, but one filled with fear and sorrow…

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, say the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.  Jeremiah 29:11

but in Christ we are to remain in Him, and know that tmw has enough evils of its own…and u know wht?  Christ dont tell us to do one thang to provide against tmw evils…He dont tell us to save money for it, or plan for it or tryna plan any future…in Christ, our future is bought and paid fa by th blood of th Lamb of God–Jesus Christ–and we are to rest in Him and cast our cares on Him, not tryna plan for th cares of tmw…th earth is th Lord’s and th fullness of it is His…and He is able to do all what He promise…

so we remain in His rest and learn from Him…His yoke is easy and His burden is truly light…He promises us that those things which we have need of, He provides em as we seek His face, and so we dont have to chase around after those thangs like those who live apart from Christ, as tho we were orphans (those who dont know God as Father) and widows (those who dont know Christ as Husband)…we are His, bought, paid fa, cleansed, born of th Spirit and we can trust that He is able to do what He promise, regardless how th world is breathin down our necks to ‘plan ur future’…and trust also that He is willing to do it fa us…

worry dont change a thang…worry is that place satan holds u hostage, hatin and breathin threats about what he gonna do to u and those who u love…today, tomorrow, whenever…satan wanna be heard u know?  and worry moves us…but Jesus Christ is our way outta worry…cast ur cares upon Him, bc He cares for u…how simple is that? in Christ, when thoughts arise which exalt against th Lord, and which are against th knowledge of Christ, Christ arises and casts em down, like satan was cast down from heaven, those thoughts are cast down, and our minds are renewed to th mind of Christ…Christ is th standard God lifted up in th battle…

let this mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus…

living by impulse isnt th same as living in th NOW of Christ…its fleshly and moves us, again by th spirit of this world…its focus isnt Christ but is self centered, and is also a care of th world…bc it feeds th flesh apart from Christ…

many ppl think if they are not planning for tmw that they are automatically living in th Now of Christ…but self is devious…can make u think u are following Christ when in fact u are moved by th spirit of this world doing ‘what seems right’…or rather, what appears to be of Christ…and we can know its not of th Lord bc its full of toil and sorrow in th doing and there is loss…there is grief in everything apart from Christ…

it is why sometime do suffer loss, why sometime do get entangled in th world and proves that only Jesus knows whats of Him and what’s not of Him…and He alone separates sheep from goat, death from life, living water from bitter waters of flesh…He alone knows whats His and only His is gonna remain…

revelation of Christ IN us shows us something of Him and removes th obstacle of our own flesh that made us blind (in th year king uzziah died, i looked up and saw th Lord and His train filled th temple)…and with that, comes th working of th Spirit IN Us…its not enough fa Him to tell us …He told adam and adam still sinned and died…it must be worked IN us, and by workin in us i mean that He alone makes disciples of men…He alone makes us believers…He alone conforms th mind and we are transformed by th renewing of our minds, from th natural mind that cant receive th thangs of God, to th mind of Christ which only receives from God and no longer is moved according to th world…

revelation IN us establishes a new standard, raises th standard which is Christ IN us, th only one th Father is lookin fa in th earth…and Christ in us, warring against th flesh, actyally conforms us to th image of Christ…and its in tha conformed that th fruit of th Spirit is seen–this is th true disciple, th one that is like his master but not greater than his master; th one that is a son like his Father, but is NOT th Father… not being ‘like gods’ but being made in th image of th Father…

apart from being conformed (go into all th world [IN US] and make disciples of all nations) there is no walking in th newness of life, doing works prepared for us beforehand…

as long as we are yet walkin after th flesh at all, by any part of us, we are gonna be tossed to and fro by th winds of doctrines (what seems right to a man)…and there is loss, but not a loss we mourn over bc everythin of th flesh thats lost is gain fa us in Christ; meat fa th belly and th belly fa meat but both perish…while its th spirit of this world ‘inspiring’ or breathin into (thoughts that exalt against God and are against th obedience of Christ), Christ in us is th standard raised in that battle, which isnt our battle, but is th battle of th Lord and th victory is ours…He gives us th victory by castin down vain imaginings and every thought that exalts against God…that is part of His work in us…just as God said, Let There Be, and then th Lord God planted, so it is with each one who is born of ht Spirit of God…there is revelation, hearing with new ears, seeing with new eyes, a renewed mind which is th mind of Christ to receive th thangs of God, and then comes th walkin in th newness of life…which is th fruit manifesting, th Christ IN us bein seen ON us, th removing of corruption and puttin on incorruption…

God said let there be light, and light appeared…light came…He didnt create light bc He IS light…but GAVE light in th midst of darkness…that is Christ in us…a new creation born in th midst of th old, a new life rising separate and apart from th cocoon where its hidden from th world…

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:5

this is th work of Christ in us…He alone knows what needs to be cast down, what needs to be raised up and what needs to die…we only know what seems right to a man…but as our minds are renewed, thought by thought, purpose by purpose, hope by hope, glory by glory, we are no longer moved by th winds of doctrine; we arent on a roller coaster of emotional highs and lows that take us hither and yon and cause us loss…there is th conforming work that makes us walk in th newness of life, which is already present, and causes us to walk in works  (HIS works IN us, not our works) foreordained for us…that is th newness of life…

we can say we know some thangs of Christ…but what we know will be tried by fire…not th world’s fire, but th flame of God, when Christ looks at it…if its His it wont burn (as we are not consumed) but whatever is not of Him will perish…will burn up, be cast out, uprooted, cast down and severed from that which is His…years ago th Lord told me…Jesus Christ is th last man standing…i lvoe that…knowing whatever we suffer, whatever victory we are given…its all of Him…bc we are in Him and He is in us and nothing and no body can separate us from th love of God that is in Christ Jesus…

th battle is th Lord’s but th victory is ours and we walk in victory as we walk conformed to th image of Christ…it is here that we are ‘blessed’ bc we walk not in th counsel of th ungodly, but we are walkin after th Spirit of God, THE Counselor, to reap life everlasting…

Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. Romans 8:21

For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.  And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. Romans 8:22-23
