“Now it’s time to be made new by every revelation that’s been given to you. And to be transformed as you embrace the glorious Christ-within as your new life and live in union with him! For God has re-created you all over again in his perfect righteousness, and you now belong to him in the realm of true holiness.”
We were created to be like God in holiness and righteousness. We belong to Him, there is a mystical connection with us and the persons of Holy, Love, Righteousness, Truth, Peace Joy, The whole Elohim.
When we turn our eyes inwards towards His presence, there we can break out from the fears or restrictions attempting to captivate us in the world.
We can live with “doves eyes” captivated only on Christ. Exist in the ‘It is finished’ place .
“When he had sipped the sour wine, he said, “It is finished, my bride!” Then he bowed his head and surrendered his spirit to God.”
He defeated sin and death on the cross as He spoke these words ‘ it is finished” but in Hebrew the translation word is Kalah simultaneously means ‘completed ‘ and ‘bride’.
The finished work on the cross was salvation but this continues today with the work of the church, the bride, to complete to extend the the kingdom realm on earth.
Although spiritual warfare is real it is not our focus.‘it is finished’ . Our focus is upon Christ who is very much alive and in control.
It is all about Jesus. Paul’s letters and scriptures are all about this reality. We abandon our life to be set apart. Relinquish our control to enjoy being in Him. Then He can establish all things in and through us.
It was not the torturous nails that held Jesus to the cross but what He knew was on the other side. The “new dawn” with a bride who were the “apple of His eye.”
We are a new creation in Christ. Old things pass away and all things become new.
He has brought forth an embodiment that reflects Him on earth. We are His beloved who He will escort into a revival which will not have a short duration but will continue into eternity.
The bride is transfigured and there will be zero fear or unbelief as we step deeper into the revelation of Christ and the knowledge of God.
Everything changes when we have heaven’s perspective. All separation ceases to exist.
His life and Being engulfs us and we are infused and connected.
What has been stained and broken in us is removed and pure robes and crowns of holiness are bestowed upon us as we are immersed in the love, radiance, perfection and beauty of who He is as it pours out of Him in Holiness.
When the King shows up we stand in the light and strength of His victory and Royalty. Breathing in the oxygen of heaven. Standing tall and secure above the rest sharing in the fruits of His love.
“You stand in victory above the rest, stately and secure as you share with me your vineyard of love.”
We live for Him and because of Him. He is the assurance of hope and glory in us. Shining and speaking words of life.
He breaks us free from all other bondages to know our true worth. Brings us forth with no shame, fully clothed in Him.
God is a jealous lover and He comes to destroy all our constraints that give us false identity and that prohibits us soaring with Him.
The illustration shows the dove bursting forth representative of unconstrained freedom, love, purity, Spirit radiating light and love and bringing light to push back the darkness.
