This seems to be one of those moments I just write to write. Unfortunately, this is one of those moments where reality meets a dream world. A state where one longs for the eternal to become reality right now. You know, the state where your mind, body, soul and Spirit are still one, but a part of you (your Spirit) wants a greater level. I have to ask myself, am I depriving myself of a greater level in God?
Am I really daydreaming while Jesus Christ is right in front of me, telling about the great and wondrous things he desires me to do concerning His testimony. You know I read something interesting this morning in Revelations 19…Interesting chapter…if you get the chance READ IT!
But yeah, Revelations 19:10, saying (KJV), “…And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
Well, see that made me think, if the TESTIMONY of JESUS is the spirit of prophecy, then that means no prophecy can be given without the word. Actually, that just came as I was writing this. How so you may ask? Well, John 1:1-14 says, “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…(verse 14) And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” Even further, the grace of God comes through Jesus Christ, for “By Grace we were saved.” That means, Jesus already paid the price, so he didn’t just die, he died for our sins, which means that grace is immediately available to all that desire it NOW! Waiting does not provoke grace’s hands, it actually pains the heart of grace which comes through Christ and His Spirit, The HOLY SPIRIT. The Holy Spirit was sent as a Counselor and friend…essentially HE is the Spirit of the Living God. If you see the Holy Spirit as just power and influence, you’ve missed the greater level that needs to be reached.
Yes! The Holy Spirit is everything great and powerful as God Himself is, however, the Holy Spirit is also caring, has emotions and feelings, intellect, all the attributes of a person, except He (The Holy Spirit) does not sin,
will not sin and will not dwell in a temple where sin dwells. Now, I’ve said this before, the Word of God says, not said, because it still IS…:)…that , we are the temples of the Holy Spirit, and if anyone defiles this temple that person or thing will be destroyed.
Listen it is very easy to get complacent with the message of Jesus Christ, but I want to encourage all those out there to keep moving forward, keep believing and maintaining and growing in Faith, read your word and spend time with God, follow the instructions of the Holy Spirit, live righteously, etc. There are so many things to do. Essentially, truly understanding the testimony and sacrifice of Jesus Christ brings for the reality of (not daydreaming) truly worshipping God (as His temple) in Spirit and in Truth.
There is much more to say, I will continue the waterfront series part 3 very soon…so be in wait!…YAY! Haha.
Concerning all those who are still searching for that answer, for that word that will grab your focus…know this…there is only 1 Word, and that is Jesus Christ! The bible says that He is the resurrection and Life, that He is the Light of the World. In Him dwells the fullness of the deity…and in Him is salvation, grace, mercy, redemption and those attributes attributed to a new and greater life with purpose, direction and wholeness. I implore you to choose Christ today as your personal Lord and Saviour and Ask Him for the receiving of the Holy Spirit, who will be a friend, counselor and wonderful presence that will continue to guide you along the righteous path to Heaven and a purpose driven and great life worth living ONLY through Jesus Christ!
God bless you as you continue moving forward!
