Hi Doves,I particularly love an old Tyndale translation I came across, of Matt. 28:20."Behold I am with you everyday until the ending of the age"The Lord has already told us, in His Word, that,"...the Harvest is the End of the Age." (Matt.13:39)The Lord is showing us that this present Age will end on the Day of Pentecost, which just happens to be called the Feast of the Harvest.For we read,"Three times you shall keep a feast to me in the Year:You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread...and the Feast of Harvest...and the Feast of In-gathering..." (Exod.23:14-16)Let me paraphrase what the Lord is saying in Matt.28:20"Behold I am with you everyday, through the continues outpouring of My Holy Spirit, until you all receive your glorified bodies, on the Day of Pentecost, at the End of this Age".I would just like to encourage everyone to remain in the Word of God.Remember the Holy Spirit is regenerating, quickening and sanctifying us as we use our lips to confess it, as an act of worship unto our Lord Jesus Christ.Our worship produces the righteousness we practise, which as a consequence produces or renews our spiritual bodies.Our spiritual bodies (which are hidden within our natural bodies for now) then produce more worship, which in turn produces even more righteousness.This is the cycle of how the Lord continuously regenerates us.Worship > Righteousness > Spiritual body > Worship > Righteousness > Spiritual bodyThis is how we are being change from glory to glory by the Holy Spirit."...We all...are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord." (2Cor.3:18)"...The inward man is being renewed day by day." (2Cor.4:16)"...If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practises righteousness is born of Him." (1John 2:29)It's important we understand the eternal bond between declaring the Truth of the Word and the righteousness of God we practise.They cannot be separated.If the Word of God is always on our lips we will practise His righteousness!!!This is why the Apostle John tells us,"...let no one deceive you. He who practises righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous." (1John 3:7)This is why we read,"The righteousness of Your testimonies(that is, the Lord's truths declared with our lips) is everlasting...My tongue shall speak of Your Word, for all Your commandments are righteousness." (Psalm 119:144,172)This is why it's so important to approach the Word with reverence.Time spent confessing the Word, is time spent worshipping the Lord by the power of the Holy Spirit.By speaking His Word daily we acquire strong spiritual bodies, that enable us to keep the Lord's commandments by the power of the Holy Spirit.This is why the Lord said,"If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word; and My Father will love him and We will come to him and make Our home with him." (John 14:23)THE LORD'S HOME IS OUR SPIRITUAL BODIES.HE CAN ONLY BUILD THEM IN US, IF WE SPEAK HIS WORD BECAUSE WE LOVE HIM.For we read,"...We have the same Spirit of Faith...we also believe and there fore speak, knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus..." (2Cor.4:14)To be "raised up with Jesus", means to be raised up into heaven, in a glorified body, by the Holy Spirit Who dwells in us.Again we read,"But let us who are of the Day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation (that is, the hope of the redemption of our bodies)." (1Thess.5:8)Also we read,"...Speaking the Truth(of faith) in Love may grow up in all things into Him who is the Head-Christ-..." (Eph.4:15)Our spiritual bodies are already in us, and they remain strong ready to be revealed on the Last Day of this Age.My hope is that on the 11th of August 2010, our spiritual bodies are birthed into this natural realm.For then the whole World will see, in a tangible way, that we are truly loved by God.Then will come to pass the prayer of the Lord, to the Father, when He was on earth."...The glory (Holy Spirit) which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one:I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect (that is, receive our glorified flesh and bones at the end of this age) in one, and that the World may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me." (John17:22,23)As things stand today, the World doesn't believe that Jesus was sent to redeem the Human race.Those of use that believe in Him are regarded as being deluded.The World's perception of use will change instantly, when we receive our glorified bodies!!!For then, the World will know, beyond all doubt, that the Almighty God of heaven and earth, did indeed come into the World to redeem the human race!!!They will then see, with their own eyes, His love for use, as He takes us up, with Him, into heaven in glorified bodies!!!What a glorious Day that will be!!!!!!!!!!do remain blessed,Ola.
