Overflowing Wine

th reason its wrong…

For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God. Hebrews 7:19 

years ago th Lord told me how ppl can appear to be in agreement, can maybe say th same stuff even, but in truth, or rather IN Truth, theres no real agreement at all…bc they arent of Christ, so their motive to do or say dont proceed from th Word of God, but from their own flesh…only what proceeds from God is of God…everythin else is flesh…

i understand when anyone has a opinon about th goings on of th world…i get it…th world is a wicked place full of torment and tragedy and sorrow from every corner…so when anyone has a better political agenda or some idea about how we can all get along, i get that…i expect th world to be th world and worldly ideas to have nothin in common wit Truth…

i dont get it when ppl who claim th Name of th Lord Jesus Christ, have th same kinda opinions and ideas as th world–and their measure isnt Christ…i mean…in Christ, we are concerned wit th welfare of others…we dont see war and killing as a viable option bc its against Christ…and thats th different…we are commanded to love one another, to do good to our enemies, to bless those who curse us and to pray fa those who despitefully use us…so to say war, its carnality and its carnal weapons are against Christ, is a far different thang than sayin war is evil bc of what it does to one side or the other…

apart from Christ all thangs are evil…every thought apart from Christ is evil…even our righteousness is as filthy rags…

when those who ‘come in th name of Christ’, claiming to be christian, have a concern fa others,  but that concern derives from what th gov ought to do or th unfairness of one world system over another, or th acts of one nation against another, then its just flesh…they are speakin what sounds like compassion, they are maybe even comin ‘in th name of th Lord’, but they havent given a true account fa they hope;their testimony isnt Christ…their measure isnt Christ at all…its some humanistic idea of how ppl ought to behave…and therefore, their measure is adam–flesh…

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 1 Peter 3:15 

when we see th world, what exactly do we see? do we dont know that Christ is judge, perfect righteousness and th judgment of God is IN Christ???? its ok fa th world to talk about why israel needs to stop occupying palestine and talk about human rights and human dignity…but if u are in Christ as u claim to be, ur measure isnt human dignity and human rights; your measure isnt modern israel or palestine, ur measure isnt ppl at all…ur measure is Christ alone…His command to love, to bless and to do good…and if u never mention Christ in all your thoughts, and if u never give a true account, then how has th Spirit of God led u? bc th Spirit of God dont speak about th world in terms other than enmity sin and death…th Spirit of God convicts th world of sin (th ‘other jesus’, th false Christ, th false gospel which oppose th true and living Christ), righteousness (Christ alone) and judgment (Christ alone)

it might sound irrelevant if ppl claim Christ but speak like politicians, but whats born of flesh is flesh and only whats born of th Spirit is Spirit…and THAT makes all th difference…

anyone can agree or disagree on th state of th world…but is ur thoughts proceeding from God or man? are th thoughts u promote of th natural mind or th mind of Christ?  are u moved by th spirit of this world or by th Spirit of God?

when we promote human dignity and human respect, we are saying that such a thang is possible…that apart from Christ man is able to be peacable, to have a kindly regard toward another human, to give or bring peace and ‘get along’…

but God is not a respecter of persons…He dont look on th outward, as those who judge between nations and ppls…God looks on th heart…whether its th new heart HE gave, th heart of Christ, or whether its th heart of adam, th spirit of this world…bc only th new heart, given by th Father, is new…only whats born of th Spirit is Spirit…and God’s Spirit remains in that new heart…

religion and self righteousness sound ‘good’…but they are fruit from th tree of death and not good at all…if a man says he will not war bc he is against war, what is there to prevent him?  will a man led by th spirit of this world stand against and conquer th very spirit that moves him?  in Christ, th Holy Spirit of God restrains, conquers sin and death, kills flesh and Christ is risen…and He is victor…but in th world, th spirit of this world is in operation…it neither restrains nor conquers sin and it desires to raise th dead adam…

in Christ, th weapons of our warfare are NOT carnal, but they are mighty THRU GOD to pull down strongholds…if u are against war bc its a natural act, born of th flesh and employs natural weapons, then u dont have to decide which side of th war is right or wrong…ur measure is Christ and not th world…

religious ppl use christian buzz words, they pepper their big speeches with some bible verses and stuff that sounds christian and ‘seems good to eat and make one wise’…and so they ‘seem good’…which is th big problem…

Jesus Christ is th Truth…there is no truth apart from Him…and what passes fa truth in th world is merely somethin that will change and be reshaped and mishaped over time and circumstance…Christ alone is th same yesterday today and forever…

one problem is our understanding of what is good…Jesus said only God is good…but we persist in callin ppl and systems and ideas and everythin else, ‘good’…if its true that only God is good, then only what proceeds from Him is good…and there we have a problem…bc we think our own thoughts and ideas are good and we offer em up to God and to each other as tho they WERE good…

how much better to say…only God is good…to give a true account fa th hope we have, that Christ is come and risen and has all authority and judgment and power…how much better to say that one human idea, tho it seems to oppose another human idea, is actually of th same spirit of this world, bc neither of them are of Christ…

how much better to know that th reason something is wrong, isnt bc of its impact on humans, but bc it proceeds from th spirit of this world and not from th Spirit of God…

we can say carnal wars and carnal weapons arent of God at all…thats not th same as choosin one side over another…bc when we choose sides, we look th other way when the chosen side does exactly th same thang as th other side…and th reason fa that is tht th enemy is encamped on every side…Christ alone is our refuge and our strong tower…Christ alone is different…only in Christ is new life given and kept…

God created all nations outta one blood…th blood of adam…adam is th head of his race; Christ is th head of His…Jesus is come that we be born again, not of th flesh or a husband’s will or of man, but of God…and here is our hope…that there are those who are His in every nation, even in nations which oppose one another, and He will not lose one…

so when men choose one nation over another, for whatever reasons they claim, they forget that outta th tribes and tongues and nations, God has chosen His and will not lose one…

when men choose sides, they choose men and promote themselvs as righteous or compassionate or ‘good’…

but when God chooses men, He makes Himself known to them–not a buncha ideas or agendas of humans…

men seek rights…but God seeks righteousness and that is found only in Christ…

when men choose sides, they declare one side good and one side evil….

but God says that all have sinned and fell short of His glory…He dont choose men bc they are good or righteous; our rightesounsess is as filthy rags…only God is good; Christ alone is th only rigtheous One…when God chooses men, He makes dead men live and He alone is th God who makes men holy…not a personal holiness which derives from th man, but an inner holiness that pours outta th earthen vessel, like th water at cana which became wine as it poured out…

    “men seek rights…but God seeks righteousness and that is found only in Christ…” I love this quote so much, exactly right.. and u know what the Lord showed me recently? He showed me that Christianity is in the business of humanity.. but Christ isn’t a humanist, but He came to end all flesh. He came to put the world under His feet…Christ is the opposite of being in the business of humanity.. He came to establish His own heavenly race.. ur right there are no sides.. no good or evil.. all are the same spirit, from the same tree, eating the same fruit.. God separates His own from the world, and He is IN Christ.. not in governments, or nations, or political parties, or sides of the war.. but IN Christ.. apart from Christ, there is no God in these things.. just a diff spirit entirely, a diff beast.. God isn’t in the beast, He isn’t in the man idol.. He is in the Son who is in the Bride. Thats why we dont get caught up in the world.. but we are caught up above, where Christ is on the right hand of the Father, and caught up to the throne filled with mercy.

      And you know people I think if your not humanistic your cruel… But humanism is the love is the love of the world which is hate. Adam hates only God loves. And the love of God does not fail. And is not merited by being good or being better than everybody else. The love of God is freely given in Christ.
