Short Reads to Stimulate Long Thoughts

THE PAST IS NOT THE PRESENT

Sunday 09-10-2017 Ephesians 2 (NASB) QT

1 And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.

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

Terry, ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­_____________, for 21 years you were locked into sin, knowingly or unknowingly you lived in harmony with evil, your flesh dictated your every move; motivated by the desires of the flesh your mind could only pursue avenues, as to how, to fulfill those desires.  This was your past, even now you recognize the evilness of your flesh’s goodness.  Once enslaved by the flesh and the prince of the power of the air, now, in the present …

Thursday, 09-07-2017 Ephesians 1 15-19 QT

15 For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease giving thanks for you, while maBking mention of you in my prayers; 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.

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

Terry, ______________, people will know if your faith is focused on Me and if your love for the saints is greater than your commitment to your preferences.  Oh, that you would believe Our Heavenly Father, that He gives you His Spirit of wisdom and His Revelation through becoming intimate with Him.  Your submission to Him will open the eyes of your heart so that you will recognize the reality of His personal interest in you and vast inheritance you have received, as a result, of My death. 

My, My, what surpassing power is available to you because you believe Me.

TO THE PRAISE OF HIS GLORY

Wednesday, 09-06- 2017 Ephesians 1 13- QT

13 In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.

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

Terry, _____________, as a result, of your salvation in and through Me, My Spirit, as promised, now dwells in you, too, He confirms all Our Promises to you; you listened to Our Good News and embraced Us as family, as We have you.  I do not want to diminish the hardship of the redemption process, yet I want you to know, you, as a family member, were worth it to Me.  Our Hearts are aglow with delight.

GOD’S REVELATION or MAN’S INTELLIGENCE

Tuesday, 09-05- 2017 Ephesians 1 9-12 QT

In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him 10 with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. In Him 11 also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, 12 to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory.

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

Terry, ___________, the mystery you have come to believe and accept, you in Me and I in you; is only by Father’s Revelation, it has nothing to do with being smarter or of greater intelligence than anyone else.

Because you’re in Me, you have a fantastic inheritance and purpose that causes your life’s responses to focus everyone’s attention on My presence and power in you.

Because of Our Union, My Church, people are praising Our Father, causing the brightness of His magnificence to be revealed to all humanity.

PLANNED, FOR THOSE IN CHRIST

Monday, 09-04- 2017 Ephesians 1 5-9 QT

In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us.

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

Terry, _____________, pay attention to the power of Father’s predetermined plan for you, when you became One with Me. 

As a result, of being in Me, you were predestined to be adopted as a son, for you were considered with Me as I hung and shed My blood on the cross.  In Me you died and rose from the dead and are now alive as one of Our Father’s sons.

Oh, the magnificence of Our grace which Father drenched you in when He placed you in Me, for it goes beyond forgiveness and redemption to the enablement of LIVING LIFE IN THE POWER OF MY PRESENCE.

The richness of OUR GRACE is seen in its Power to entwine Our Lives Together, so as to be LIVED, as ONE.

A PLAN SET IN MOTION FROM THE FOUNDATION OF CREATION

Sunday, 09-03- 2017 Ephesians 5 1-4 QT

1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,

To the saints who are at Ephesus and who are faithful in Christ Jesus: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him.

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

Terry, _____________, I am speaking to you from the perspective of the fact you are already in Me.  My Father chose all, whom He places in Me and I in them, would be Holy, as I am Holy and blameless as I am blameless.  He determined this way back at the very moment He created the world.

He even now brags on you and We speak respectfully and with praise concerning Our fellowship with you.  This, is why we refer to you as holy ones, family members.  As you abide in Me, you will have all the grace you need and all the peace you want.

JESUS, MY ALL IN ALL???

Friday, 09-01-2017 Galatians 6 14-18 QT

14 But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15 For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. 16 And those who will walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.

17 From now on let no one cause trouble for me, for I bear on my body the brand-marks of Jesus.

18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brethren. Amen.

**********

Terry, _____________, because you have been placed in Me you are no longer to be motivated by this world’s pleasures, enticements, culture, values or reasoning. 

Your greatest enticement, now, IS ME.  You are, now, to be motivated, by Our daily intimacy.  From Our connection flows all that you value, think, all your actions, attitudes and involvements; We are now ONE.

Your verbal expressions should be a result of Our Oneness with each other; My Presence and Power, in you, should be evident to all those around you.

Terry, ____________, all this will happen if you will simply rest in Me.  I’ll see to it.  Don’t you try and perform it.  I Am working it out, go with My flow – FAITH IN ME WILL RELEASE ME THROUGH YOU.  I will make it happen, by My Presence, and Power; I simply want you to come along with Me in this adventure – your part – anticipate, and expect as you join with Me as My Companion.

STALE AIR or FRESH AIR

Wednesday, 08-30-2017 Galatians 6 9- QT

Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. 10 So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.

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

Terry, ____________, don’t start taking short cuts in sharing Our Intimacy with others.  Give it all the creative expressions that I implant.  What We plant, together, you may never see take root yet there are times you will see Our efforts blossom.  Both, situations are times of rejoicing for We have planted and planted TOGETHER.

Be ready to share Our Spiritual journey with everyone but especially with members of My Body and be receptive, of what they share, of their journey with Me.

THINK BEYOND THE PHYSICAL

Tuesday, 08-29-2017 Galatians 6 3- QT

The one who is taught the word is to share all good things with the one who teaches himDo not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

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

Terry, __________________ did you catch, I am not referring, to sharing, of fleshly needs here.  Get caught up with the one teaching you by sharing all the good that is happening between you and Me with the one teaching.  Communicate with your teacher and participate with your teacher, sow spiritual life together and you will reap that which is eternal.

HIS THOUGHTS? or MY THOUGHTS? and THEIR THOUGHTS?

Monday, 08-28-2017 Galatians 6 1-2 QT

For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But each one must examine his own work, and then he will have reason for boasting in regard to himself alone, and not in regard to another. For each one will bear his own load.

***********

Terry, ______________, if you have an inflated concept of your importance or even a deflated idea of your significance, of your ability to work with Me, you will be extremely hindered.  You need to be aware of who you are in Me and be content with Me.  We are, and that is enough.

Check yourself out, on the basis, of your own, intimacy with Me rather than what others are thinking or saying about you.  Pop their balloon and your own for they are full of fleshly deception.  Think of yourself as I think of you.
