3 “My anger is kindled against the shepherds,
And I will punish the goatherds.
For the LORD of hosts will visit His flock,
The house of Judah,
And will make them as His royal horse in the battle.
4 From him comes the cornerstone,
the tent peg,
the battle bow,
every ruler together.
5 They shall be like mighty men,
Who tread down their enemies
In the mire of the streets in the battle.
They shall fight because the LORD is with them,
And the riders on horses shall be put to shame.
6 “I will strengthen the house of Judah,
And I will save the house of Joseph.
I will bring them back,
Because I have mercy on them.
They shall be as though I had not cast them aside;
For I am the LORD their God,
And I will hear them.
7 Those of Ephraim shall be like a mighty man,
And their heart shall rejoice as if with wine.
Yes, their children shall see it and be glad;
Their heart shall rejoice in the LORD.
8 I will whistle for them and gather them,
For I will redeem them;
And they shall increase as they once increased.
9 “I will sow them among the peoples,
And they shall remember Me in far countries;
They shall live, together with their children,
And they shall return.
10 I will also bring them back from the land of Egypt,
And gather them from Assyria.
I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon,
Until no more room is found for them.
11 He shall pass through the sea with affliction,
And strike the waves of the sea:
All the depths of the River shall dry up.
Then the pride of Assyria shall be brought down,
And the scepter of Egypt shall depart.
12 “So I will strengthen them in the LORD,
And they shall walk up and down in His name,”
Says the LORD. (Zechariah 10:3-12)
The Bible, it's promises, it's provisions, it's principles, and the honour of God are larger than anything we've been believing for in Word of Faith circles. The call to disciple the nations and to rule the earth with His omnipresent Spirit and omnipresent Gospel is larger than we've been obedient enough to entertain. Eden and Paradise were the Old Covenant. The New Covenant is bigger!
1 To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
7 A time to tear,
And a time to sew; (Ecclesiastes 3:1,7)
Disasters should not be happening any more as we more and more faithfully meditate in the Gospel day and night and resist sin in the knowledge that as we resist it, we resist it for the whole Body of Christ. As the whole Body of Christ resists it, we become stronger as a united voice that calls for the Blessing that the Blood of Jesus is crying out for.
Every Gospel-believer in touch with every molecule of truth and love as they embody each line of the New Testament, [fulfilling the types and shadows of the New Testament,] create a butterfly effect of blessings and provisions for every molecule in the universe. As we firmly, single-mindedly resist death, we pull every molecule of matter, energy, space, time, and being out of the grave and send the universe leaping into the open arms of God. Every subatomic particle in every universe must obey our diligent confession, meditation, application, and thanksgiving of the Gospel. Every subatomic particle must meet every need in every universe, systematically according to our expanding divine nature, including the need of every molecule in the multiverse to enjoy the Blessing of the God Who created it by the Word that's expanding our redemption through His High Priestly ministry by the preached, meditated, revealed, & applied Gospel.
9 not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.
10 For he who would love life and see good days,
Let him refrain his tongue from evil,
And his lips from speaking deceit.
11 Let him turn away from evil and do good;
Let him seek prosperity and pursue it. (1Peter 3:9-11)
Our blessing must grow until each thought in the multiverse is drowned by infinite love and brought captive to the obedience of Christ. There is never any reason for strife as each contends for the faith of every syllable of the Gospel.
14We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death.
15Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
16We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
17But whoever has the world's goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?
18Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.
19We will know by this that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart before Him
20in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knows all things.
21Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God;
22and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.
23This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.
24The one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us. (1John 3:14-24)
Nothing is beyond the reach of our love as John 14:12 Christians. No need being met is beyond the reach of our [realized] conformity to the Spirit of Christ. The destiny of every sound and every molecule of light is in our hands as we implode every dimension of reality into the dimension of the Gospel through our diligent self-implosion of our lives/realities into the Gospel.
Cleansing ourselves of every filthiness of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God is our Gospel mandate to leaven every millimeter of the multiverse with. Why do we see ourselves as smaller than the universe that we preside over through the Blood of Jesus Christ and His High Priestly ministry?
Each breath the expanding ribcage of the universe allows the Creation to breathe of God's essence is at the discretion of the joint-heirs with Christ who know their seating in the Gospel and the mind of the [eternally-now] Holy Spirit!
Each solar system that's rotating around the nucleus of it's sun or suns is functioning by the permission of the Gospel and the Ambassadors of Christ alone through the wisdom of the 9 orbiting planets around the Blood of Christ that St. Paul calls the fruit of the spirit!
Every system of sanctification in the Bible, or method of bringing about the revelation of His own perfections and provisions through the life of the believer is directly correspondent to each constellation, each galaxy, and each portent/portal of space, time, and being. Each promise of each Covenant of promise in the Bible is directly proportioned to bringing about the existence and order of each galaxy through each believer's meditation, obedience, and fulfillment of the divine nature in the New Testament.
The harmony of the energy of each galaxy of the universe that corresponds to each organ of the human body is a direct ratio to every thought of the believer being subject to the obedience of Christ. Adam was given that crown of glory, then Christ, and then each believer according to John 17 and nearly every chapter in St. Paul.
19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.
20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. (Romans 8:19-23)
3For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. (2Corinthians 10:3-6)
The Creation groans for the renewed minds of the children of God through Christ Jesus. The Creation longs for a just rule through our domination of the laws of sin and death through the Gospel. Each syllable of the Gospel must be fulfilled in our deepest confession and meditation upon the whole cosmos of the Written Gospel for each breath of the Creation through the expanding ribcage of the universe to free it from it's former weakness and bondage to decay. It experiences a passive salvation, [though no less dynamic and shocking,] and reflects each aspect of our order or chaos in our discipleship to the Gospel!
Nothing is bound to time. All things are bound by the lack of the whole cosmos, [or body/corpus,] of the Gospel being the meditation and restored identity of each believer. The Word must [perpetually] breathe upon/through our lips for each weakness in the Creation to be breathed out [by the Creation] into the fire of God so that those weaknesses and griefs in the Creation would be no more, as it reflects our image, as the moon to the sun, as we're transubstantiated into His own Persons by the big bang of the Gospel creating a new heavens and new earth within each of us, as it circulates our whole being.
The Gospel must be our sole identity if resurrection and life is to be the identity of every subatomic particle and the high tower of safety for all of space, time, and being everywhere. All being everywhere and every created molecule, each galaxy, and each universe is within the intestines of each believer in Christ to begin to treat correctly with the food and medicine of a fully digested Gospel that must go from being our religious fever and religious indigestion of the past into becoming our elevated metabolic process that fulfills, cleanses, restores, and renews all things from the beginning of that moment to every moment everywhere, including past, present, and future.
12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering;
13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
15 And let the prosperity of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with honour in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father embodying Him. (Colossians 3:12-17)
