GLORY TO GLORY

GOD’S LIVING COVENANT-LIFE IN FULLNESS: “That you may really come to know practically, through experience for yourselves the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge without experience; that you may be filled through all your being unto all the fullness of God, may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself!”
TO ALL WHO WOULD RECEIVE AND LIVE IN THE FULLNESS OF GOD:
Greetings and love to you in the Name of Jesus. As you seek Him, you will experience His grace, love, mercy and healing power. Be healed today in the Name of Jesus!
Many people ask and strive to seek God’s will for their lives while ignoring that the core of God’s will for our lives is revealed in His Word. Many have been led to believe that God’s will for each of us is some mystical spiritual mystery, only revealed to us if we live a certain way or beg Him to reveal it to us. Consequently, many of us never fulfill God’s highest purpose for our lives. Instead we spend a lifetime searching for it and often stumbling around like a person walking in a very dark place. Jesus Himself said, “But if anyone walks about in the night, he does stumble, because there is no light in him [the light is lacking to him].”
I have great and glorious news for you and the whole world. “But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people. For to you is born this day in the town of David a Savior, Who is Christ (the Messiah) the Lord!”
Wait a minute, is this a Christmas message? No it is the truth of our glorious salvation and deliverance from the power of this world which was in the heart of God, even before the world was formed, was manifested with the worldly birth of Jesus and was totally completed with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
It is indeed the Gospel-The Good News!
Now notice what the angel proclaimed to all mankind (you and me and everybody).
This good news and joy to all of us!!!!!!!!!!
Now look at God’s will for you and me and everybody. (The angel said to ALL people) First, He wants us to have first hand practical experience of the love of Christ. The Greek word used here is “ginosko”. It simply means to know by observation and experience. Jesus is interested and concerned about every area of your physical life as well as your spiritual condition.
Next, we read it is God’s will that you may be filled through all your being unto all the fullness of God. Who is God? What is God? What are His limits? What are His characteristics? Whatever the answers are to these questions, He wants you and me and everybody to be filled with His fullness! Why do we set our sights so low in life when it is His will that we be filled with His very being?
Further, we read that it is His will that we be filled with the richest measure of His divine presence. The reality of this should make us leap for joy. The truth is that it is possible to be filled with the fullness of God and the richest measure of His divine presence. If it were not so, He would not have said it!
The verse concludes with a glorious insight into the very heart of the Father’s will for each of us. Read it as if it was written directly to you because it is. He wants us to “become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself!” Imagine what God wills for us if we can only rise up to believe it instead of what the world or even our own mind tells us! Think about it. Meditate on what this revelation of God’s will to you and for you means for you.
There are people who have lost interest and hope in life and are filled with despair because of circumstances or negative dispositions. Although setbacks and trials shake the very core of our foundations, we must not lose sight of Jesus, who He is and what He did for us and even more so, who we are because He lives inside of us. He came so that we might have life and have it to the overflowing. (John 10:10) He has given us His promise that He will be with us in every situation in life. He promised to carry our burdens so that we don’t have to. We were not made to carry burdens. In every daily situation of life, even when the hour is the darkest, we need to turn to Him in faith.
Let us purpose in our hearts to ENTER and STAY in an intimate relationship with Him where fear, worry, sickness, lack and every other thing that is not of God has no place. Let us seek to experience, practically, the love of Jesus and to know the joy and peace that HE died to give us.
WE LOVE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS- WALLY & JAN
Today’s prayer: Lord, You sprinkle Your blessings over me like, soft, gentle rain. You gladden my heart. Grant in full measure the fullness of Your Spirit. Amen
