Short Reads to Stimulate Long Thoughts

Colossians 3 – 11- 26-27- 2017

Sunday 11-26-2017 Colossians 3  1-4  QT

1 Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.

Terry, it is not when you make yourself holy, or when you change, you have already been made holy and have already been changed.  I Am, your Life.  Seek Me through all the enhancers I have provided for you.

Monday 11-27-2017 Colossians 3  5-11  QT

Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry. For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience, and in them you also once walked, when you were living in them. But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices, 10 and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him— 11 a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.

Terry, you are “NEW” because you are now One with Me.  Do not let the flesh have free reign with your thoughts for your thoughts will always influence your attitude and actions.  Because your “NEW”, you have My Life and power to control the flesh and all it’s passions.  Remember to give into the flesh is idolatry.  Go back and read verses 1-4; so let Us have a great day.

AWARENESS OF JESUS’ PRESENCE DEFUSES THE FLESH, WORLD AND SATAN

Saturday 10-07-2017 Eph.5 WEEKLY REVIEW   QT

Terry, you don’t have to remind yourself of My presence when you live in a conscious awareness of My presence.  You never have to ask Me to be present for I Am always present; know that I am present.  If you start to doubt, then throw your doubt out by shifting your focus off your doubt to the awareness of MY Presence.

JESUS – A HUSBAND’S EXAMPLE

Thursday 10-05-2017 Eph.5:22-24   QT

22 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. 24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.

****************

Terry, how do you view Me, in light, of your relationship with Carol?  Do I demand that you obey Me?  Do I withhold from you to manipulate or threaten with intimidation?  Am I dictatorial?

Maybe, you ought to reevaluate your relationship with Carol, in light, of your relationship with Me.  Bleed for her as I have bled for you; sacrifice for her as I have sacrificed for you; serve her as I serve you; provide for her as I have supplied for you. 

Encourage, inspire, and enjoy, life with her, as I do with you.

AN INHERITANCE TO ENJOY

Monday 10-02-2017 Eph. 5: 3-5   QT

But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

****************

Terry, I have set My Church free from immorality, impurity, and greed, in fact We don’t even joke about such things.  My Church is constantly expressing thanks and appreciation to each other for being active members with Me, in My Church.  Yes, My Church is enjoying, together, their inheritance in the Kingdom belonging to the Father, Spirit, and I.

ALL I NEED IS HIS PRESENCE IN MY PRESENT

Tuesday 09-26-2017 Eph.4:9-10   QT

(Now this expression, “He ascended,” what does it mean except that He also had descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He who descended is Himself also He who ascended far above all the heavens, so that He might fill all things.)

**************

Terry, beings I came from Our Father, I Am the One who returned to the Father.  I came from where time has no influence and have now returned to Our Father’s presence so that He would be to you all you need in every phase, situation and circumstance of your life as you live this present time.

SUFFICIENT IN CHRIST

Monday 09-25-2017 Eph.4:7-8   QT

But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore it says,

“When He ascended on high,
He led captive a host of captives,
And He gave gifts to men.”

Terry, I Am generous and benevolent to each member of My Church; for I have given Myself to each individual member.  This is why it is said of Me that I am beneficial to all.  Each member, of My Body, has all of Me he/she needs to accomplish all I desire of them.  I Am sufficient, therefore you are sufficient.

SUFFICIENT BECAUSE JESUS IS SUFFICIENT

Sunday 09-25-2017 Eph.4:7-   QT

But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore it says,

“When He ascended on high,
He led captive a host of captives,
And He gave gifts to men.”

*****************

Terry, I Am generous and benevolent to each member of My Church; for I have given Myself to each individual member.  This is why it is said of Me that I am beneficial to all.  Each member, of My Body, has all of Me he/she needs to accomplish all I desire of them.  I Am sufficient, therefore you are sufficient.

PERSON OR COMMODITY

Sunday 09-24-2017 Eph.4:1-6   QT

1 Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.

Terry, do not fall into the trap that you can confine Me with your knowledge of My Written Word.  Do you really think that all I Am is in the Written Word?  I gave you warning in:

John 21: 25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

Be content with, unity of the Spirit, one Body, one Spirit, one Lord (Me), one faith, one Baptism, One God and Father.  Your faith needs be in Me as a Person, not Me as a commodity.

The difference is: that Me as a commodity you will try to manipulate or intimidate thinking you are in charge by faith;  when your faith is in Me as a Person you will become SUBMISSIVE, to Me, by faith.

LOVE EMBRACES & EXPOSES

Thursday 09-21-2017 Eph.3:14-19   QT

14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love,18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.

****************

Terry, I am constantly asking Our Father to grant My Church, that with all His resources to empower each member, by My Spirit, in their inner man; that I might abide supreme in their hearts by faith.

My Love would be your love, that together as My Church you would experience the totality of My Love, expressing it to each other.  I would that the your knowledge would not be a hindrance to the flow of My Love, but how I embrace you individually you would embrace each other corporatelyIt is in your submission to Me and the demonstration of the Father’s Love within My Church that the fullness of the Father is seen in every culture, people group, and community.  

MY IDENTITY IS IN CHRIST

Wednesday 09-20-2017 Eph.3:11-13   QT

11 This was in accordance with the eternal purpose which He carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12 in whom we have boldness and confident access through faith in Him. 13 Therefore I ask you not to lose heart at my tribulations on your behalf, for they are your glory.

Terry, your understanding of My eternal purpose is in accordance with My plan that you encourage My Body to seek a personal intimacy with Me.  Their identity is to be discovered in My Revelations as to who they are IN ME.  Only then can they find the freedom to become involved with Me in the good works that I have prepared for them to walk in.
