What I mean by that is that there is a huge difference between someone trying to be like Jesus and someone resting in Him.
Religion teaches people that they can be good people and ascend higher if they do certain things. The New Covenant God made with Jesus HAS ALREADY LIFTED US UP AND BROUGHT US INTO THE HIGHEST ONE. Why try to become better? Jesus is your righteousness…even if you are a mess. Jesus is your perfection even if you mess things up daily.
God does not see any evil in you. He sees Jesus.
Jesus and you are ONE.
If they see you they see Jesus.
Is that too much for you?
It is the truth that sets the captive to religion free.
But sadly most want religion not Jesus.
Religion allows the old man to thrive and to boast.
Poor Christian religion 🙁
Soon they will take your Bibles away, your fine buildings and assets..all the stuff of religion. Then what will you do.
Ask yourself NOW “Do I have Jesus? “…and secondly…”Is Jesus enough for me?”
“Silver and Gold I DO NOT HAVE…Such AS I HAVE I give to thee.
If you are IN Christ then Christ Jesus is also IN YOU.
He is all you need.
He is become your very LIFE…YOUR SELF.
You and Jesus as ONE…He is fully Jesus and you are fully you. But One.
To imagine that you must somehow conform your self to the Jesus of Christianity is nonsense.
He has put you to death and raised you up inside of Jesus==PERMANENTLY.
You are raised up inside of Him…entwined with Him in every way….ONE.
If you see your self as being a separate being from Jesus…with you down here and Jesus up there…you are living in delusion.
If you see Jesus out there, or even next to you, like in the passenger seat of the car as you drive…you are living in delusion.
Jesus is your life! READ Paul’s words to you below. It is about you! Not just Paul. YOU!
Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
“I live; yet not I,” ??
Look at that again…and again…
I live yet not I.
Who is it living?
“Christ liveth in me”
So the I that lives in me is Christ living in me…
And the life I now live…is Christ living by His faith in God.
This may be all gobble-dee-gook to you. Perhaps you think being a Christian is all about the Book and your obedience to it. You perhaps pray to God that He help you be more obedient to His commands. This is Christianity for a huge amount of people. Bless their souls! Yet I know that when the fire comes to them they shall not be able to stand. Their faith rests upon a God who is outside of them , up there, far away. They are depending upon their own obedience to God. Watch the Devil take advantage of this mindset and use it to defeat them.
He is not called “the Accuser of the brethren” for nothing!
“That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spot-light
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough” REM
I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you tryEvery whisper, of every waking hour
I’m choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt, lost and blinded fool, fool
Oh no I’ve said too much
I set it up
But that was just a dream
Try, cry, fly, try
That was just a dream..REM
Rejecting Jesus as our only LIFE inside of us….leads to this nightmare of accusation.
The events of the end times… – wars, famines, pestilences, deception, antichrists, beast goverments’ etc etc are sent to DEAL with all such separated mindsets
I made that text big because the Spirit of God is shouting it on every corner.
The NAME OF THE LORD is like a strong tower the righteous run into it and are blessed. Troubles come so that the righteous will RUN INTO HIM…
INSIDE OF HIM….
RIGHT INTO HIM….
DEEP WITHIN HIM…
Too mystical for you?
God is SPIRIT.
Most want academic reasoning and a mental approach to God. A nice book of rules and instructions.
The end times will eradicate that.
Do YOU HAVE GOD’S SPIRIT?
That is the question.
If so…Then stop trying to be separate from Him…so you can prove to God how good you are at obeying without His indwelling.
If you are in Him…He is in you…and He is living the LIFE as you…and with you…It is HIS FAITH not a faith that springs from you alone…it is not up to you to get faith but Jesus HAS ALL THE FAITH YOU NEED….AND HE GLADLY SHARES IT WITH YOU IF you will humbly receive it.
You might say–“No Lord, I will live by FAITH IN YOU!…Me here and You up there!
Again I say– DELUSION!! Good luck with that!
If the foundation be Christ Jesus…then the whole building must also be JESUS. Every stone laid upon the foundation must be JESUS.
If any stone is that old man trying to obey God…it will be burned up for IT IS CHAFF!
Time to take a break from religion and get out of ‘Christianity’ for God will not allow it to come into His kingdom.
Only Jesus comes into His Kingdom.
If that seems heretical to you…so be it.
How will you get into the wedding then?
What garment will you choose?
Your own or JUST JESUS?
