The Lord's Highest Purpose is to recover His
Isaiah 11:10 And it shall be in that day that the
Root of Jesse shall stand as a signal for the peoples; of Him shall the nations
inquire and seek knowledge, and His dwelling shall be glory [His rest
glorious]! 11 And in that day the Lord shall again lift up His hand a
second time to recover (acquire and deliver) the remnant of His people which is
left, from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Pathros, from Ethiopia, from
Elam [in Persia], from Shinar [Babylonia], from Hamath [in Upper Syria], and
from the countries bordering on the [Mediterranean] Sea. 12 And He will
raise up a signal for the nations and will assemble the outcasts of Israel and will gather together the dispersed of
from the four corners of the earth.
Isaiah 14:26 This is the [Lord's] purpose that is
purposed upon the whole earth [regarded as conquered and put under tribute by Assyria]; and this is [His omnipotent] hand that is
stretched out over all the nations.
***Key Verse*** :
Isaiah 53:1 WHO HAS believed (trusted in, relied upon,
and clung to) our message [of that which was revealed to us]? And to whom has
the arm of the Lord been disclosed?
Do we believe the message we hear?
Do we see what His arm and hand is doing in our midst?
John 12:38 So that what Isaiah the prophet said was
fulfilled: Lord, who has believed our report and our message? And to whom has
the arm (the power) of the Lord been shown (unveiled and revealed)? 39
Therefore they could not believe [they were unable to believe]. For Isaiah has
also said, 40 He has blinded their eyes and hardened and benumbed their
[callous, degenerated] hearts [He has made their minds dull], to keep them from
seeing with their eyes and understanding with their hearts and minds and
repenting and turning to Me to heal them. 41 Isaiah said this because he saw
His glory and spoke of Him.
Romans 10:16 But they have not all heeded the
Gospel; for Isaiah says, Lord, who has believed (had faith in) what he has
heard from us?
Romans 4:5 But to one who, not working [by the
Law], trusts (believes fully) in Him Who justifies the ungodly, his faith is
credited to him as righteousness (the standing acceptable to God).
We must fully believe.....
Luke 18:7 And will not [our just] God defend and
protect and avenge His elect (His chosen ones), who cry to Him day and night?
Will He defer them and delay help on their behalf? 8 I tell you, He will
defend and protect and avenge them speedily. However, when the Son of Man
comes, will He find [persistence in] faith on the earth?
We grow from faith to faith. We must be persistent in
KEY WORDS: OURPERSISTENCE - ENDURANCE - CONTINUANCE - BEING
Romans 2:7 To those who by patient persistence in
well-doing [ springing from piety] seek [unseen but sure] glory and honor and [
the eternal blessedness of] immortality, He will give eternal life.
Patient persistence receives the fullness of eternal
life. The full life, the richness of His Divine Presence.
Hebrews 12:1 THEREFORE THEN, since we are
surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the
Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight)
and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us,
and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the
appointed course of the race that is set before us, 2 Looking away [from all
that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith
[giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing
it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize]
that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame,
and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Just think of Him
Who endured from sinners such grievous opposition and bitter hostility against
Himself [reckon up and consider it all in comparison with your trials], so that
you may not grow weary or exhausted, losing heart and relaxing and fainting in
The Lord has waited for a people to grow into the
maturity of their faith. Now He can move them into perfection in their faith.
They will not fail, faint, or quit, they will prevail till the end.
The Battle between darkness and light;
Righteousness and unrighteousness:
Psalms 34:19 Many evils confront the [consistently]
righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
Psalms 55:22 Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing
the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the
[consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail).
A consistent walk will never fail, fall, stumble, or
slip. We must climb the mountain to see things from his view. We will see
things as He sees them.
Isaiah 60:21 Your people also shall all be
[uncompromisingly and consistently] righteous; they shall possess the land
forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be
The Awakening within unveils His Form
and His Union to you!
Psalm 17:15 As for me, I will continue beholding
Your face in righteousness (rightness, justice, and right standing with You); I
shall be fully satisfied, when I awake [to find myself] beholding Your form
[and having sweet communion with You].
We are awakening. We are beginning to behold Him. We
are going to be satisfied in our union with Him. We shall behold Him, we shall know
Him, we shall be made like Him.
2 Corinthians 13:14 The grace (favor and spiritual
blessing) of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the presence and
fellowship (the communion and sharing together, and participation) in the Holy
Spirit be with you all. Amen (so be it).
(HE IS OUR COMMON-UNION)
Proverbs 3:32 For the perverse are an abomination
[extremely disgusting and detestable] to the Lord; but His confidential
communion and secret counsel are with the [uncompromisingly] righteous (those
who are upright and in right standing with Him).
His Confidential Communion and Secret Counsels come to
those who believe and live in Union with Him!
Psalms 25:14 The secret [of the sweet, satisfying
companionship] of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He
will show them His covenant and reveal to them its [deep, inner] meaning.
John 7:17 If any man desires to do His will (God's
pleasure), he will know (have the needed illumination to recognize, and can
tell for himself) whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking
from Myself and of My own accord and on My own authority.
His illumination within us reveals to us what is true
and what is not true.
John 15:15 I do not call you servants (slaves) any
longer, for the servant does not know what his master is doing (working out). But
I have called you My friends, because I have made known to you everything that
I have heard from My Father. [I have revealed to you everything that I have
learned from Him.]
Go and tell others that which you have heard, and that
which you have seen. This is the gospel.....

So I went and looked up the name Chloe in the dictionary:
Chloe - meaning
1. A green shoot. A
green herb. Young green foliage and shoots of plants.
2. Blooming. Verdant
glory. Verdant and blooming. Fresh blooming.
So then I looked up the word Verdant:
Verdant: To be
green with vegetation; to be covered with growing plants or grass, to be lush:
a verdant oasis.

in: 1 Corinthians 1:11
1 Corinthians1:1 PAUL, SUMMONED by the will and purpose of
God to be an apostle (special messenger) of Christ Jesus, and our brother
Sosthenes, 2 To the church (assembly) of God which is in Corinth, to those
consecrated and purified and made holy in Christ Jesus, [who are] selected and
called to be saints (God's people), together with all those who in any place
call upon and give honor to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord
and ours: 3 Grace (favor and spiritual blessing) be to you and [heart] peace
from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 4 I thank my God at all times
for you because of the grace (the favor and spiritual blessing) of God which
was bestowed on you in Christ Jesus, 5 [So] that in Him in every respect you
were enriched, in full power and readiness of speech [to speak of your faith]
and complete knowledge and illumination [to give you full insight into its
meaning]. 6 In this way [our] witnessing concerning Christ (the Messiah) was so
confirmed and established and made sure in you 7 That you are not [consciously]
falling behind or lacking in any special spiritual endowment or Christian grace
[the reception of which is due to the power of divine grace operating in your
souls by the Holy Spirit], while you wait and watch [constantly living in hope]
for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and [His] being made visible to all. 8
And He will establish you to the end [keep you steadfast, give you strength,
and guarantee your vindication; He will be your warrant against all accusation
or indictment so that you will be] guiltless and irreproachable in the day of
our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).9 God is faithful (reliable,
trustworthy, and therefore ever true to His promise, and He can be depended
on); by Him you were called into companionship and participation with His Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord. 10 But I urge and entreat you, brethren, by the name of
our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you be in perfect harmony and full agreement
in what you say, and that there be no dissensions or factions or divisions
among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in
your opinions and judgments. 11 For it has been made clear to me, my brethren,
by those of Chloe's household, that there are contentions and wrangling and
factions among you.- AMP
ESV: 11 For it has been reported to me by Chloe’s people
that there is quarreling among you, my brothers.
1 Corinthians 11:18 For, in the first place, when you come
together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you. And I believe
it in part,
1 Corinthians 3:3 for you are still of the flesh. For while there
is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in
a human way?
Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are evident:
sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife,
jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy,
drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before,
that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there
is no law. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh
with its passions and desires. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also
walk by the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another,
envying one another.
"What (or who) am I walking in today?"
In my flesh, or in
His Fruit?In my soul, or in His Mind?
In my human spirit, or in His Spirit that dwells in me?
It's not about what I
think; it's about what HE thinks!
Romans 13:13 Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in
orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in
quarreling and jealousy.

Isaiah 61:1 THE SPIRIT of the Lord God is upon me,
because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good
tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and
heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual]
captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound,
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] and the
day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, 3 To grant [consolation
and joy] to those who mourn in Zion--to give them an ornament (a garland or
diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the
garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing
spirit--that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and
magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with
God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. 4 And they shall
rebuild the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former desolations and renew
the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations. 5 Aliens shall
stand [ready] and feed your flocks, and foreigners shall be your plowmen and
your vinedressers. 6 But you shall be called the priests of the Lord; people
will speak of you as the ministers of our God. You shall eat the wealth of the
nations, and the glory [once that of your captors] shall be yours. 7 Instead of
your [former] shame you shall have a twofold recompense; instead of dishonor
and reproach [your people] shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in
their land they shall possess double [what they had forfeited]; everlasting joy
shall be theirs. 8 For I the Lord love justice; I hate robbery and wrong with
violence or a burnt offering. And I will faithfully give them their
recompense in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant or league with
them. 9 And their offspring shall be known among the nations and their
descendants among the peoples. All who see them [in their prosperity] will
recognize and acknowledge that they are the people whom the Lord has blessed.
10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul will exult in my God; for He has
clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of
righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride
adorns herself with her jewels. 11 For as [surely as] the earth brings forth
its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring forth, so
[surely] the Lord God will cause rightness and justice and praise to spring
forth before all the nations [through the self-fulfilling power of His word].
1897 Bible Dictionary:
The First Epistle to the Corinthians was written from Ephesus (1 Cor. 16:8) about the time of the Passover in
the third year of the apostle's sojourn there (Acts 19:10; 20:31), and when he
had formed the purpose to visit Macedonia,
and then return to Corinth
(probably A.D. 57).
The news which had reached him, however, from Corinth frustrated his
plan. He had heard of the abuses and contentions that had arisen among them,
first from Apollos (Acts 19:1), and then from a letter they had written him on
the subject, and also from some of the "household of Chloe," and from
Stephanas and his two friends who had visited him (1 Cor. 1:11; 16:17). Paul
thereupon wrote this letter, for the purpose of checking the factious spirit
and correcting the erroneous opinions that had sprung up among them, and
remedying the many abuses and disorderly practices that prevailed. Titus and a
brother whose name is not given were probably the bearers of the letter (2 Cor.
2:13; 8:6, 16-18).
The epistle may be divided into four parts:
(1.) The apostle deals with the subject of the lamentable
divisions and party strifes that had arisen among them (1 Cor. 1-4).
(2.) He next treats of certain cases of immorality that had
become notorious among them. They had apparently set at nought the very first
principles of morality (5; 6).
(3.) In the third part he discusses various questions of
doctrine and of Christian ethics in reply to certain communications they had
made to him. He especially rectifies certain flagrant abuses regarding the
celebration of the Lord's Supper (7-14).
(4.) The concluding part (15; 16) contains an elaborate
defense of the doctrine of the resurrection of the dead, which had been called
in question by some among them, followed by some general instructions,
intimations, and greetings.
This epistle "shows the powerful self-control of the
apostle in spite of his physical weakness, his distressed circumstances, his
incessant troubles, and his emotional nature. It was written, he tells us, in
bitter anguish, 'out of much affliction and pressure of heart...and with
streaming eyes' (2 Cor. 2:4); yet he restrained the expression of his feelings,
and wrote with a dignity and holy calm which he thought most calculated to win back
his erring children. It gives a vivid picture of the early church...It entirely
dissipates the dream that the apostolic church was in an exceptional condition
of holiness of life or purity of doctrine." The apostle in this epistle
unfolds and applies great principles fitted to guide the church of all ages in
dealing with the same and kindred evils in whatever form they may appear.

1 Corinthians 10:16 The cup of blessing [of wine at the
Lord's Supper] upon which we ask [God's] blessing, does it not mean [that in
drinking it] we participate in and share a fellowship (a communion) in the
blood of Christ (the Messiah)? The bread which we break, does it not mean [that
in eating it] we participate in and share a fellowship (a communion) in the
body of Christ? 17 For we [no matter how] numerous we are, are one body, because
we all partake of the one Bread [the One Whom the communion bread represents].
The Wilderness, the Fruitful Field,
and the Forest - 04-04-14
Core Scripture: Isaiah 44:
Is 44:1 YET NOW hear, O
Jacob, My servant and Israel,
whom I have chosen. 2 Thus says the Lord, Who made you and formed you from the
womb, Who will help you: Fear not, O Jacob, My servant, and you Jeshurun [the
upright one--applied to Israel
as a type of the Messiah], whom I have chosen. 3 For I will pour water upon him
who is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground. I will pour My Spirit upon your
offspring, and My blessing upon your descendants. 4 And they shall spring up among
the grass like willows or poplars by the watercourses.
What He does within us, also transforms our generation
lineage into a watercourse for His Spirit to flow through.
His Watercourse: Man: (The Spirit - the Soul - the Body)
John 7:37 Now on the final
and most important day of the Feast, Jesus stood, and He cried in a loud voice,
If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! 38 He who believes in Me
[who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From
his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living
water. 39 But He was speaking here of the Spirit, Whom those who believed (trusted,
had faith) in Him were afterward to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit had not yet
been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified (raised to honor).
Isaiah 35:6 Then shall the
lame man leap like a hart, and the tongue of the dumb shall sing for joy. For
waters shall break forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert. 7 And the
burning sand and the mirage shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs
of water; in the haunt of jackals, where they lay resting, shall be grass with
reeds and rushes.
The Wilderness- the Fruitful Field- the Forest:
Is 32:15 Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and the fruitful field is valued as a forest.
2 Kings 19:30 And the remnant
that has survived of the house of Judah shall again take root
downward and bear fruit upward.
We are going from just Dwelling, into Living, until we
are fully Abiding:
John 15:4 Dwell in Me, and I
will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear
fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither
can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me.
Three Stages of Maturity: Fruit- Rich Fruit- Excellent Fruit
The Glory penetrates into each area, brings a
separation for clarification, thoroughly cleanses, then refashions all three parts
of our being, thereby making us whole. The Glory flows through us unhindered.
Ezekiel 37:8 Though it was
planted in good soil where water was plentiful for it to produce leaves and to bear
fruit, it was transplanted, that it might become a splendid vine.
John 15:2 Any branch in Me
that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes
away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear
fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit.
We are going from just bearing Fruit - unto
bearing Rich Fruit - until we fully bear Excellent Fruit.
Isaiah 44 continued:
5 One will say, I am the
Lord's; and another will call himself by the name of Jacob; and another will
write [even brand or tattoo] upon his hand, I am the Lord's, and surname
himself by the [honorable] name of Israel. 6 Thus says the Lord, the King of
Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the First and I am the Last;
besides Me there is no God. 7 Who is like Me? Let him [stand and] proclaim it,
declare it, and set [his proofs] in order before Me, since I made and
established the people of antiquity. [Who has announced from of old] the things
that are coming? Then let them declare yet future things. 8 Fear not, nor be
afraid [in the coming violent upheavals]; have I not told it to you from of old
and declared it? And you are My witnesses! Is there a God besides Me? There is
no [other] Rock; I know not any.
The Glory begins to deal with the hearts and minds of
men, and the things we depend on:
9 All who make graven idols
are confusion, chaos, and worthlessness. Their objects (idols) in which they
delight do not profit them, and their own witnesses (worshipers) do not see or
know, so that they are put to shame. 10 Who is [such a fool as] to fashion a
god or cast a graven image that is profitable for nothing? 11 Behold, all his
fellows shall be put to shame, and the craftsmen, [how can they make a god?]
they are but men. Let them all be gathered together, let them stand forth; they
shall be terrified, they shall be put to shame together. 12 The ironsmith
sharpens and uses a chisel and works it over the coals; he shapes [the core of
the idol] with hammers and forges it with his strong arm. He becomes hungry and
his strength fails; he drinks no water and is faint. 13 The carpenter stretches
out a line, he marks it out with a pencil or red ocher; he fashions [an idol]
with planes and marks it out with the compasses; and he shapes it to have the
figure of a man, with the beauty of a man, that it may dwell in a house. 14 He
hews for himself cedars, and takes the holm tree and the oak and lets them grow
strong for himself among the trees of the forest; he plants a fir tree or an
ash, and the rain nourishes it. 15 Then it becomes fuel for a man to burn; a
part of it he takes and warms himself, yes, he kindles a fire and bakes bread.
[Then out of the remainder, the leavings] he also makes a god and worships it!
He [with his own hands] makes it into a graven image and falls down and
worships it! 16 He burns part of the wood in the fire; with part of it he
[cooks and] eats flesh, he roasts meat and is satisfied. Also he warms himself
and says, Aha! I am warm, I have seen the fire! 17 And from what is left [of
the log] he makes a god, his graven idol. He falls down to it, he worships it
and prays to it and says, Deliver me, for you are my god!
The Glory that is being released now is confronting the darkness that is still rooted deeply in our hearts and
minds, so He can transform them and fill them with light. All that we have done in our flesh, in our soul, or outside of His will is being shown to us, so that we can allow Him to remove those things deeply seated within us, and our dependence upon them, so that we can be richly transformed by Him. Only that which is birthed from His Spirit, and that which comes from His Wisdom, will remain in the days and years to come.
18 They do not know or
understand, for their eyes God has let become besmeared so that they cannot
see, and their minds as well so that they cannot understand. 19 And no one
considers in his mind, nor has he knowledge and understanding [enough] to say
[to himself], I have burned part of this log in the fire, and also I have baked
bread on its coals and have roasted meat and eaten it. And shall I make the
remainder of it into an abomination [the very essence of what is disgusting,
detestable, and shamefully vile in the eyes of a jealous God]? Shall I fall
down and worship the stock of a tree [a block of wood without consciousness or
life]? 20 That kind of man feeds on ashes [and finds his satisfaction in
ashes]! A deluded mind has led him astray, so that he cannot release and save
himself, or ask, Is not [this thing I am holding] in my right hand a lie?
The Charge for our day from the Lord to His People:
21 Remember these things
[earnestly], O Jacob, O Israel, for you are My servant! I formed you, you are
My servant; O Israel, you shall not be forgotten by Me. 22 I have blotted out
like a thick cloud your transgressions, and like a cloud your sins. Return to
Me, for I have redeemed you. 23 Sing, O heavens, for the Lord has done it; shout,
you depths of the earth; break forth into singing, you mountains, O forest and
every tree in it! For the Lord has redeemed Jacob, and He glorifies Himself in Israel. 24 Thus
says the Lord, your Redeemer, and He Who formed you from the womb: I am the
Lord, Who made all things, Who alone stretched out the heavens, Who spread out
the earth by Myself [who was with Me]?--
The Glory will frustrate the signs, the omens, and the
counsels of men in our day, to reveal Himself:
25 [I am the Lord] Who
frustrates the signs and confounds the omens [upon which the false prophets'
forecasts of the future are based] of the [boasting] liars and makes fools of
diviners, Who turns the wise backward and makes their knowledge foolishness, 26
[The Lord] Who confirms the word of His servant and performs the counsel of His
messengers, Who says of Jerusalem, She shall [again] be inhabited, and of the
cities of Judah, They shall [again] be built, and I will raise up their ruins, 27
Who says to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up your rivers, 28 Who says of
Cyrus, He is My shepherd (ruler), and he shall perform all My pleasure and
fulfill all My purpose--even saying of Jerusalem, She shall [again] be built,
and of the temple, Your foundation shall [again] be laid.
You are in the process of being rebuilt into His Habitation,
and many will look through your life, and see Jesus within. He is also doing this Body-wide, because He is
going to be seen, and known, as the only true God of this world and of this generation!
It's time to become that FruitfulForest
-and the Oaks of Righteousness!
