Setting our Wills, Thoughts, Purposes, and Actions to Christ's
The Lord spoke to me through this verse today:
Hebrews 7:25 “Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who draw near to Him, who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them.”
Completely - Perfectly - Finally - For all time - and Eternity......
- God has a detailed plan for our lives to unfold!
God's Winds of Change brings the necessary changes to our lives, in every area, so that we can walk in the fullness of God's plans.
But we must embrace the Winds of Change!
1 John 2:1 MY LITTLE children, I write you these things so that you may not violate God's law and sin. But if anyone should sin, we have an Advocate (One Who will intercede for us) with the Father--[it is] Jesus Christ [the all] righteous [upright, just, Who conforms to the Father's will in every purpose, thought, and action].
1 John 1:9 If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss our lawlessness] and [continuously] cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action].
2 Timothy 3:16 Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God's will in thought, purpose, and action),
Hebrews 12:11 For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems grievous and painful; but afterwards it yields a peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it [a harvest of fruit which consists in righteousness--in conformity to God's will in purpose, thought, and action, resulting in right living and right standing with God].
Romans 6:18 And having been set free from sin, you have become the servants of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in thought, purpose, and action).
Romans 8:27And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God's will.
The Lord prays for us according to the Father's will, and the Holy Spirit empowers us to change and live it out, as we learn to be conformed to Him.
We must embrace the changes, trust God while we are going through them, and believe that He will bring all things into harmony with His will while we are in transition.
He knows just what He is doing!
We must be set towards the goal of the high calling!
Galatians 5:5 For we, [not relying on the Law but] through the [Holy] Spirit's [help], by faith anticipate and wait for the blessing and good for which our righteousness and right standing with God [our conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action, causes us] to hope.
Galatians 3:6 Thus Abraham believed in and adhered to and trusted in and relied on God, and it was reckoned and placed to his account and credited as righteousness (as conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action).
Titus 3:7 [And He did it in order] that we might be justified by His grace (by His favor, wholly undeserved), [that we might be acknowledged and counted as conformed to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action], and that we might become heirs of eternal life according to [our] hope.
1 John 2:9 If you know (perceive and are sure) that He [Christ] is [absolutely] righteous [conforming to the Father's will in purpose, thought, and action], you may also know (be sure) that everyone who does righteously [and is therefore in like manner conformed to the divine will] is born (begotten) of Him [ God].
1 John 3:7 Boys (lads), let no one deceive and lead you astray. He who practices righteousness [who is upright, conforming to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action, living a consistently conscientious life] is righteous, even as He is righteous.
-Being in conformity to God's will in purpose, thought, and action, resulting in right living and right standing with God] means:
1. We must set our wills to do His Will
2. We must determine to not do our own plans and purposes, but to live each day for His Purposes alone
3. We must set our thoughts to think His Thoughts and do them
4. We must move only when we are moved by the Holy Spirit so that our actions will be His Actions
Examples in the Word of lives controlled by the Holy Spirit:
Luke 1:15 For he (John) will be great and distinguished in the sight of the Lord. And he must drink no wine nor strong drink, and he will be filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit even in and from his mother's womb.
41 And it occurred that when Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit.
67 Now Zachariah his father was filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit and prophesied, saying,
Luke 4:1 THEN JESUS, full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led in [by] the [Holy] Spirit.
Acts 4:8 Then Peter, [because he was] filled with [and controlled by] the Holy Spirit, said to them, Rulers of the people and members of the council (the Sanhedrin),
Acts 6:5 And the suggestion pleased the whole assembly, and they selected Stephen, a man full of faith (a strong and welcome belief that Jesus is the Messiah) and full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit,
Acts 7:55 But he, full of the Holy Spirit and controlled by Him, gazed into heaven and saw the glory (the splendor and majesty) of God, and Jesus standing at God's right hand;
Acts 11:24 For he (Barnabus) was a good man [ good in himself and also at once for the good and the advantage of other people], full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit and full of faith (of his belief that Jesus is the Messiah, through Whom we obtain eternal salvation). And a large company was added to the Lord.
Acts 13:9 But Saul, who is also called Paul, filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit, looked steadily at...
Romans 8:4 So that the righteous and just requirement of the Law might be fully met in us who live and move not in the ways of the flesh but in the ways of the Spirit [our lives governed not by the standards and according to the dictates of the flesh, but controlled by the Holy Spirit]. 5 For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit.
Galatians 6:1 BRETHREN, IF any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also.
Galatians 5:25 If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit.]
"Completely - Perfectly - Finally - For all time - and Eternity......"
- God has a detailed plan for our lives to unfold, but we must fully rise up and be bold!
Philippians 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
"Alexander's Grand Bell"
The Lord has been giving us many different prophetic pictures of the new communications that are about to be released to us in the earth. We released the post regarding the Communication packages earlier this week. This is another picture the Lord gave us tonight. The Lord wants us to fully understand what He is doing so that we can cooperate and also accomplish all of His directives that will come to us.
During the prayer watch at church, Patrick was leading the prayer and while he was praying, I saw a vision of an old style phone, much like the one above, except this one was also a supernatural phone. I heard the statement that it was "Alexander's Grand Bell."
The phone had a dial with holes in it for the numbers and a cord that led to the ear cup, and a voice speaker. Then as I watched, I saw a hand come down and it had the index finger pointed and it was going to put it's finger into the holes. When it drew close the phone began to change. The dial of the phone became a wheel, and the finger holes for the numbers became eyes within the wheel. The finger then poked into the eye of one of the holes and turned the wheel as if dialing the phone. When this happened, the wheel turned and power went from the wheel up the cord and into the bell shaped ear cup. The bell shaped ear cup then began to ring like a bell. As the bell shaped ear cup rang, the mouth piece that you speak into began to speak and it began to interpret what the bell was saying. I knew that the eyes and the wheel had to do with Ezekiel's wheel, and the index finger was the prophetic office.
The prophets are about to tap into new revelatory communications from heaven in such a degree that the 7 Spirits of God would begin to manifest through the revelatory communications in a way that we have never previously tapped into. When the prophets move in union and harmony with the 7 Spirits of God, the wheel or the revelatory realm would begin to release new fresh communications, which would turn the wheel and the power would then be sent to the ear cups of those with ears to hear. The bell shaped ear cup on the phone is typified as the prophetic people who have the capacity to receive God's prophetic communications through God's prophetic gifting. The bell represents the gifts of the Spirit. This then activates the voice to speak and translate or communicate the prophetic truths that are being released by the 7 fold Holy Spirit that is speaking new things, living oracles, to the Body of Christ, so that the whole Body of Christ can grow and flourish.
New Heavenly Communications are about to be released from heaven into the earth. The 7-fold Holy Spirit is about to ignite the Spiritual Gifts of the Holy Spirit in such a deep way, that the Prophets will release a new revelatory flow which will empower the Body of Christ to move in the Heavenly Realms with power and great accuracy. The Lord is about to release fresh wisdom, His Living Oracles, which will cause His Voice to be heard and also to be understood in the earth. The Father has held much truth in reserve for this generation. It is time for the Body of Christ to now apprehend them and to also move forwards into those truths to see the Wisdom of God flow and the revelation of the Lord be demonstrated in the earth. The Knowledge of the Glory of the Lord is about to be communicated in a fuller way. -End of the Vision
Scriptures the Lord led me to look up:
Zechariah 3:9 For behold, upon the stone which I have set before Joshua, upon that one stone are seven eyes or facets [the all-embracing providence of God and the sevenfold radiations of the Spirit of God]. Behold, I will carve upon it its inscription, says the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity and guilt of this land in a single day.
Zechariah 4:10 Who [with reason] despises the day of small things? For these seven shall rejoice when they see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel. [These seven] are the eyes of the Lord which run to and fro throughout the whole earth.
2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong in behalf of those whose hearts are blameless toward Him.
Revelations 1:4 John to the seven assemblies (churches) that are in Asia: May grace (God's unmerited favor) be granted to you and spiritual peace ( the peace of Christ's kingdom) from Him Who is and Who was and Who is to come, and from the seven Spirits [ the sevenfold Holy Spirit] before His throne,
Revelations 5:6 And there between the throne and the four living creatures (beings) and among the elders [ of the heavenly Sanhedrin] I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God [ the sevenfold Holy Spirit] Who have been sent [on duty far and wide] into all the earth.
Revelations 22:6 And he [of the seven angels further] said to me, These statements are reliable (worthy of confidence) and genuine (true). And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent His messenger (angel) to make known and exhibit to His servants what must soon come to pass.
Romans 3:2 Much in every way. To begin with, to the Jews were entrusted the oracles (the brief communications, the intentions, the utterances) of God.
Acts 7:38 This is the one who was in the congregation in the wilderness with the angel who spoke to him at Mount Sinai, and with our fathers. He received living oracles to give to us.
Deuteronomy 32:47 For it is no empty word for you, but your very life, and by this word you shall live long in the land that you are going over the Jordan to possess."
Habbakkuk 2:1 [OH, I know, I have been rash to talk out plainly this way to God!] I will [in my thinking] stand upon my post of observation and station myself on the tower or fortress, and will watch to see what He will say within me and what answer I will make [as His mouthpiece] to the perplexities of my complaint against Him. 2 And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day. 14 But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
