There is no higher calling, or an accolade, title or degree that one can aquire from Earth or from Heaven, from all the Arts, Law, Health, Sciences and Physics then to be counted among The Elect of God. After all, if we are among the Elect in Gods eyes, the sciences are part of the package deal.
There is no higher place of authority or power than to sit side by side with our Heavenly Father, which is His desire (Ephesians 2.8)
It is because we have this understanding. To understand is to have something underneath you to stand upon. For we have the promises of God. That “we have a more sure word than you do, and you do well to pay attention to it (Gods Word) as to a light that shines in a dark place (the heart) untill the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. Knowing this that the prophecies of old did not come by common man but Holy Men of God that were moved by the Holy Spirit”. Yes God has His way in us. He owns us and because of this, we don’t own Him persay, but we do co-own all that He has. We are joint heirs “in Christ”, being members of His consortium.
Some consider themselves in a home, building, city, state or nation. But the one place that proceeds and supercedes them all is to be “in Christ” where there are all the things of our endowment.
“In truth”, this means you are not “in Adam” who is the source of the old way of doing things by bowing, working and serving others. We have been inverted and set back up, raised right side up to receive from the Father. This is something the old Law with its prophets could not supply. But we have the inversion of the fall where your empowerment began.
Let’s look here at some promises for your growth given to become “Overcomers” as seen in scripture starting with the most basic.
1 John 5.- “For whoever is born of God overcomes the world, and what is it that overcomes but our faith”. This is our primary instrument.
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith”. We’d like to be able to show you something more carnally appeasing, but as soon as you see it, you brought it back down out of the spirit to defuse it.
He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.” Fortunately because of baptism, you overcame the first death too. That’s why we do not fear death because you should be dying, or putting off the things of this age that make you feel safe. They cannot save you. Let them go. That’s your selected death for a new empowerment.
To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”
And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations”.
He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.” And if you think that only applies to s future date, why did Paul call “Heavenly Jerusalem, the Mother of us all”? After all if you’ve been born of the spirit, shouldn’t that give you a clue as to who your Mother is?. Or then how were you born?
To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”. And if this is only Meant for the future, how did Paul make the proclamation, that we have already been seated in the Heavenlies far above all powers and principalities now? Can you start to see what an Overcomer really is? Because it is really important to the Godhead, that you recieve the gift given at such a cost.
If you give someone a gift, and everytime you see them the package remains untouched, how would you feel. And of the gift of Godliness, meaning God-like-ness, do you think the Father appreciates your timidity? No! He is happiest with those eager to perfect the use of the gift now. None of us deserve it.
The commendable verse in scripture says that, now The Gospel is preached and all are entering, and the violent take it by force”. Like a kid, grab it from the hands of your father and try to wear it out. It’s not gonna happen. Or try to break it or get it dirty?
“Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters;
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat.
Yes, come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without price.
2 Why do you [a]spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And let your soul delight itself in abundance.
3 Incline your ear, and come to Me.
Hear, and your soul shall live;
And I will make an everlasting covenant with you—
The sure mercies of David.
4 Indeed I have given him as a witness to the people,
A leader and commander for the people.
5 Surely you shall call a nation you do not know,
And nations who do not know you shall run to you,
Because of the Lord your God,
And the Holy One of Israel;
For He has glorified you.”
6 Seek the Lord while He may be found,
Call upon Him while He is near.
7 Let the [b]wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the Lord,
And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
10 “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,
11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me [c]void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
12 “For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree,
And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree;
And it shall be to the Lord for a name,
For an everlasting sign that shall not ever expire.
Yes, even still, The Kingdom of God is at hand” to grasp and use. To who you may ask? The Overcomers, as those who quit wrangling with their worthiness. Thank you Heavenly Father for such a grand entrance into your Kingdom! Amen!
