"Therefore, IF anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." 2 Corinthians 5:17. I believe this new creature is not the old man renovated or refreshed, He is a new species with a new family,new values, new ambitions, with new possessions! Imagine this! Whoever you were before as a Jew, Greek, slave or free, Zulu, British, Indian, Muslim or American, Japanese or Congolese, ETC, ETC; is now dead and gone! They all died when Jesus died! This is not the law here! The "If" in, If any man is in Christ,is not a condition, It is the conclusion of the revelation of the Kingdom! Man is in Christ by God's doing! Verses 14-16 give context to verse 17! Paul said "Therefore" at the beginning of verse 17 which immediately includes verses 14-16!!! If God's faith sees every man in Christ in His death, then they were certainly in His resurrection. Jesus did not reveal a "potential" in you, He revealed the truth about you so that you may know the truth about yourself and be free indeed! So, Let us all put on our "new man" clothes and not keep putting on that "old suit" of that old dead life...They don't fit you anymore!

During the "Feast of Tabernacles" as described in the Gospel of John chapter seven verse thirty seven, my thoughts focused on Holy Spirit and what was really going on at this feast. In the last day of the feast, the most important day,(which was the eighth day and Sabbath by the way)Why was this so important for us to see? Holy Spirit impressed in me that when man's feasting is over there is still thirst. Yeshua comes at the last day of the feast to satisfy the thirst of those who seek God. Only the Lord Jesus Christ can quench the spiritual thirst of men by giving them His living water! Yeshua stood and shouted into the crowds gathering, "All you thirsty ones, come to me! Come to me and drink! (v 38) Believe in me, so that rivers of living water will burst from you; flowing from your innermost being, just like the Scripture says!" (From Ezekiel 47:1 and from Revelation 22:1) Rivers of living water will flow from his throne within and where a drink becomes a river! Verse 39 says "And He prophesied this about the Spirit, which those who believed in Him were about to take, for the Spirit was not yet poured out, because Yeshua was not yet unveiled in His full Splendor." Now get this...this splendor included the splendor of the cross, the splendor of His resurrection, and the glory of His ascension into heaven! Just as water poured from the rock that was struck by Moses, so from His pierced side living water poured out to heal, save, and bring life to all who believes. Holy Spirit was poured out of Christ and into us at Pentecost! WOW... What a Savior, What a King!

In Ephesians 5:19-20 (Mirror Bible) Paul is teaching us, especially when we aren't overflowing with blessing and abundance, to get our praise on and worship with power! Verse 19 says to "Speak psalms to one another; burst out in spontaneous celebration songs and spirit inspired resonance. In your heart do not let the music stop; continue to touch the Lord with whispers of worship." verse 20 goes on with this theme, saying "Because you are identified in the name of Jesus Christ, you can afford to always overflow in gratitude to the Father, in spite of everything that happens to you. You are not under circumstances but above circumstances because you are in Him!" We are not grateful FOR everything, but in spite of everything! Even in darkest of times, we must understand this huge power of worship to give our lives meaning and purpose. Worshipping Yehweh even while in despair is a way to defy the adversary and to shout our declaration of value of the good-the best-in life: the LORD! There is no more worthy purpose to praise: no more worthy time for it than NOW!

The Lord says, "I will instruct you. I will teach you the way that you should go. I will advise you as My eyes watch over you." (GOD'S WORD translation). This verse promises that whenever we are willing to listen and obey Yehweh and to follow the path He chooses, we will always be able to hear and recognize His voice! It also reminds us that it's always safe to obey His voice, even when the path seems impossible and unattainable. Paths that are less traveled will take us where our destinies come forth, where the supernatural becomes natural!!!

In the gospel of John 3:28-30 it says "You yourselves bear me witness, that I said I am not the Christ, but have been sent before Him. He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease..." John the Baptist was saying to his disciples that he knew who he was, and he knew his scroll, his destiny. When you know who you are in Yehweh, you never need to fear anyone overthrowing your kingdom destiny, or your ministry! He was identifying himself, not as the bride, but as the best man at the wedding, who stands beside the bridegroom and introduces him to the bride! And he rejoices because all rejoice for a wedding arranged by Pappa! Then as Yeshua increased and he decreased, he knew that his mission was accomplished...He had introduced the Bridegroom from Heaven to the Bride on earth. When you know who you are, what is on your scroll, where you come from and where you are going, you are a true son of God. All creation is waiting for these mature sons of God to come forth...TODAY.HERE..NOW...!

In Matthew 24:32 Jesus said "when the fig tree and all the trees, shoot forth, you know summer is near." I believe Israel is that "fig tree." It shot forth(became a nation)in our own generation! The nation of Israel IS Yehweh's time clock! Watch & pray for Israel! Watch what the nations do and what how the leaders treat Israel. Watch how they turn against her... and then know Yeshua is soon to appear! He will bring in our "summer time!"

You are My precious gemstone, cut, shaped, polished, and made perfect, to be a crown of glory in My hand. A royal diadem that will bring honor and glory to Me all through eternity. (paraphrased from Isiah 62:3) You are in a safe place with Me! There is none who can steal you from My safety! I will keep My eyes on you at all times and in all times! I will give you the seven spirits that burn brightly before me to govern and instruct you. So you can mature as a Son and be presented before me in the right time! Why? you ask, It's because I love you with ALL MY HEART! "And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I take up My jewels and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son that serves him". (Malachi 3:17) We are His GEMSTONES, no wonder there is such speculation about the gems from heaven. Satan hates that we are the gemstones from heaven.
