Good Afternoon Precious Child and Saint of Our Abba Father!
If our problem is our own dullness of heart and lack of revelation by the Holy Spirit at the heart level, how do we overcome this? The answer is in these two places, the Holy Spirit and our heart. The Father has already given to us every heavenly, spiritual blessing that is in Christ Jesus. The Father has given to us complete healing, wholeness, prosperity in every area of our life by the Spirit and has already completely revived us in the spiritual realm, Now! This was all done in the Spirit, the moment we received salvation!
We were raised with Christ and seated in Him in the heavenly Spiritual realm! We had to have been made completely pure, holy, perfected and glorified to live in Jesus in the heavenly realm! Sin, lack, weakness, infirmity… do not and cannot exist in the kingdom of heaven where you now live, by the Spirit! The Redemptive work was completed by Jesus on the Cross, to the point when He said, “It is finished.” All of our salvation was purchased, all Grace from heaven, from the Father’s heart was released.
When each believer accepts the gift, then all of the Grace in heaven and from the heart of the Father is continually being released into each and every believer’s heart by the Holy Spirit! And Hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His Love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given to us.” Romans 5:5. The words, “has poured out” are in the past perfect tense, meaning that the event happened in the past but it continues on into the future without ever stopping. There is a continual flow of all the Grace and Love of the Father, which includes every spiritual blessing in the kingdom of heaven, into the heart of every believer, by the Holy Spirit!
The problem has been that many people are afraid of the Holy Spirit and many people mix the two covenants of law and grace! “For sin shall not be you master, because you are not under law, but under grace.” Romans 6:14. “So, my brothers, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit to God. For when we were controlled by the sinful nature, the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in our bodies, so that we bore fruit of death. But now, by dying to what once bound us, (the law), we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code (the law).” Romans 7:4-6.
The church has for centuries lived without this revelation that we have died to and been released from the law! Not only does the law arouse sin, but 1 Corinthians 15:56 says, “the power of sin is the law”!!!!!!! Much of the church today is living like the Israelites who missed salvation. “For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge (revelation by the Holy Spirit). Since they did not know the righteousness that comes from God (the gift of Grace) and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.” Romans 10: 2-4. They were striving to achieve their own righteousness, holiness… by their own efforts, much like much of the church today!
Many churches today mix the law and the Spirit. The mixing of the law (this self-striving for holiness and righteousness) with the Spirit (the gift of Grace), is mixing the power of sin, that which arouses sin, and fruit of death! This mixing of self effort to strive to get what the Father has already given to us, is the mixing of death and the power of sin into each person’s life! Jesus died so that we would totally and completely live by the Spirit! Everything has already been given to us, including holiness, healing, all blessings from the heavenly Spiritual realm, even the great and elusive “revival” that everyone is so desperately searching for!!!!!!
Our job is to live in the constant state of receiving of the outpouring of the Father’s Love and Grace! Everything already has been given to us, nothing has been or is being withheld! So we just set our hearts and mind on things above, the heavenly realities with unveiled faces, (without seeing ourselves in and by our flesh). We see ourselves as we are now in the Spirit, seated in Christ in the heavenly realm! In the heavenly Spiritual realm, we are perfected, glorified, as Jesus is, and one with Him!
As you see yourself in the glory of Christ, you are being transformed into the likeness of Christ, with ever increasing glory, from the Lord, who is Spirit! In the Spirit, you have been given a new heart that is fully alive!!!! See yourself in the Glory with the new heart, as Jesus is, and the Holy Spirit will transform you!!!!!!!
