For he has delivered us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins. Colossians 1:13 & 14.
The Parable of the Yeast/The Leaven
Matthew 13:33 Then he taught them another parable: "Heaven's kingdom realm can be compared to yeast that a woman takes and blends into three measures of flour and then waits until all the dough rises."
This parable teaches of God's kingdom having a small beginning but growing until its influence permeates and prevails into all the earth. The "three measure of flour" was nearly twenty-two kilos, enough to feed three hundred people. What once looked unimpressive rises to impact and feed many. The number three always points to resurrection life.
Spiritual Leaven is the spiritual power of God's kingdom
Daily bread is the yeast that never stops doing its work
The yeast needs time to work as the yeast will permeate all of the bread/humanity
God will never burn up his loaves God never overcooks humanity
God makes perfect loaves of bread
God is the agent of destiny for He loves them all
Psalm 16:5 Lord, I have chosen you alone as my inheritance. You are my prize, my pleasure, and my portion. I leave my destiny and its timing in your hands.
The leaven penetrates or permeates, all new men and women need to wait for the yeast to rise as it spreads throughout the cultures and nations of the world.
1 Corinthians 5:6-8 6 Boasting over your tolerance of sin is inappropriate. Don't you understand that even a small compromise with sin permeates the entire fellowship, just as a little leaven permeates a batch of dough? 7 To remove every trace of your "leaven" of compromise with sin so that you might become new and pure again. For indeed, you are clean or "unleavened" Paul uses encouragement here to stir them to embrace a lifestyle that is already theirs. We are all made "clean" by the blood of the Lamb. because Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed for us. Verses 6 and 7 contain the interesting metaphor of yeast and its effect on a batch of dough. It is literally "Don't you know that a little yeast affects the whole batch of dough? You must clean out the old yeast so that you can become a new batch of dough. For you are now without yeast, because Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed 8 So now we can celebrate our continual feast, not with the old "leaven," the yeast of wickedness or bitterness, but we will feast on the freshly baked bread of innocence and holiness. As translated from the Aramaic. The Greek is "the unleavened bread of sincerity and un-hidden reality."
The Plot to Kill Jesus
Mark 14:1 & 12 1 Two days before the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, to commemorate the "passing over" of the death angel over the homes of the Hebrew people in Egypt, God instituted these days of celebration. It was an eight-day observance that began with the Passover and included the Feast of Unleavened Bread. See Ex. 12:15-20; 34:18. Some believe there could have been 250,000 pilgrims who flocked to Jerusalem to observe the celebrations. Jesus, our Passover Lamb, was killed on the day of Passover. the leading priests and religious scholars were committed to finding a way to secretly arrest Jesus and have him executed.
Mark 14:12 On the first day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover Lamb is sacrificed, Jesus' disciples asked him, "Where would you like us to prepare the Passover meal for you?" "the Passover seder."
No leaven was present there at this Last Supper. They did this memorial from the long past. Though Jesus was going to be tossing this up, to a place they never imagined.
Jesus Shares Communion with His Twelve
Mark 14:22-25 22 As they ate, Jesus took the bread and blessed it, tore it, Although the Greek word klao means to "break bread," it is better understood as tearing a round loaf of flatbread in half. The symbolism of this communion meal was fulfilled by Jesus giving us his body on the cross. Believers today now feast, not on the crucified body of Jesus, but the substance of the glorified body of the resurrected Christ. and gave it to his disciples. He said to them, "Receive this; it is my body." 23 Then taking the cup of wine and giving praises to the Father, he declared the New Covenant with them. And as each one drank from the cup, 24 he said to them, "This is my blood, which seals the Covenant A few Greek manuscripts do not have the word new. It is included in the Aramaic and the majority of Greek texts. This new covenant is better because it is established on better promises. In this new covenant, God freely gives us forgiveness, life, salvation, and every heavenly spiritual blessing. See Ephesians 1:3; Hebrews 8:6-13; 9:16–17. Jesus serves his disciples the bread and the cup (the blood or wine), which means he is serving us his death and resurrection. This is now our feast and our constant supply of life (John 6:51). poured out for many. 25 I tell you the truth, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the day comes when we drink it together in the kingdom realm of my Father."
We are now in the realm of the kingdom of God. The Holy Spirit brings us into the body of Christ and into the reality of God's kingdom realm. It is growing and increasing in scope, and every time believers drink of the cup of communion, Jesus is present with us. It is the Lord's Table, not ours. This was a prophecy of what would happen in just a matter of days from then, as believers would break bread together in remembrance of what Jesus had done for them. See Acts 2:42. Jesus now drinks it with us in a new way, and not just once a year at Passover, but every time we worship him by taking communion/wedding supper.
The wedding supper/communion gives life to the body who has come into Christ now, also those who will soon know him and then those who will someday come to know Him. Enjoying now His great power living in us. 26 Then they sang a psalm or a hymn and afterward left for the Mount of Olives.
This is my body given for you. They wondered at this. He is passing out bread, as I am sure he did each year before. But never with this intensity or determination, declaring this is His body. Wow!
Then He shared the fruit of the vine. His last cup and meal with them as he planned His next step. He wanted them to know His loved them, his care for them was so immense. His mind was filled with so much love, He really would have liked to stay. But in reality, God and Jesus agreed to show them "how to love each other." They created a bond and fellowship that would not pass away. They sang, they worshiped, and I picture Jesus quoting & maybe reading from the Old Testament Scriptures. Probably Isaiah, Ezekiel, and telling about who he was. They sang Psalms and they departed for the greatest tribulation they had ever know.
The Wonderful One
Isaiah 9:6-7 6 A child has been born for us; a son has been given to us. The "child" speaks of Christ's humanity, and the "son" points to his eternal deity. This son would be born in a time of darkness, but he will bring the light of a new day to the hearts of men.
The responsibility of complete dominion will rest on his shoulders, and his name will be:
The Extraordinary Strategist!
The Mighty God!
The God of battle!
The Father of Eternity!
The Prince of Peace!
The Hebrew word for "prince" is sar, formed from two Hebrew roots: a verb meaning "to wrestle, to fight" and another verb meaning "to rule or to govern (as royalty)." So combined, the Hebrew word sar is "warring prince." Sarah, the feminine version of Sar, can be translated "a princess who is a warrior." It is possible to render v. 6 as "A Wonderful Counselor is the Mighty God! The Everlasting Father is a Prince of Peace."
7 Great and vast is his dominion. or "His authority will continually expand." The Hebrew word misrah, found only here in v. 6 and 7, can be translated "empire, governmental authority, dominion." He will bring immeasurable peace and prosperity. The Hebrew word shalom can be translated as "peace, prosperity, wholeness, and success." Perhaps all of these concepts are included in the shalom Christ brings us. He will rule on David's throne and over David's kingdom to establish and uphold it by promoting justice and righteousness from this time forward and forevermore. The marvelous passion or "intense devotion." See 2 Cor.11:2. that the Lord Yahweh, Commander of Angel Armies, has for his people will ensure that it is finished!
Daniel 2:44-45 44 And in their days of those kings" the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will forever, never, be destroyed, and the kingdom will not be left for another nation "it will be abolished Israel Commonwealth". and it will bring an end to all these kingdoms or tribes, but it "The Kingdom of God" will stand forever "to eternity" 45 "All because you saw that a stone from the mountain was chiseled out or "became loose" but not by hands, and that it crushed the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold, thereby the great God made known to the king what will be in the future, "after this" and the dream is certain and its explanation trustworthy."
Daniel 7:11-12 11 I watched then because of the sound of the great pompous words which the throne was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame. 12 As for the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away, yet their lives were prolonged for a season and a time.
Revelation 19:20-21 20 The wild beast was captured, as was the false prophet who had performed miracle-signs in his presence. (It was by these miracle-signs that he had deceived those with the mark of the wild beast and those who worshiped its image.) The wild beast and the false prophet were both thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with sulfur, 21 and their armies were killed by the sharp sword that came from the mouth of the rider on the white horse. And all the birds gorged themselves with their flesh.
Revelation 20:10 Then the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the same place with the wild beast and the false prophet—the lake of fire and sulfur—where they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Daniel 7:13–14 13 "I continued watching, in the visions of the night, and look, with the clouds of heaven One like a son of man "mortal," a "son of humankind" was coming, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented to him, before him. 14 And to him was given dominion and glory and kingship and that all the peoples, the nations, and languages would serve him; his dominion is a dominion without end, literally "of eternity" that will not cease, and his kingdom is one that will not be destroyed.

Zechariah's Apocalyptic Vision
Zechariah 14:1-8 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
Look! A day is coming for Yahweh, when your plunder will be divided in your midst. 2 I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, and they will loot the houses, and the women will be raped; half of the city will go into exile, but the remainder of the people will not be cut off from the city. 3 Then Yahweh will go forth and fight against those nations, like when he fights, literally “the day of his fighting" on a day of battle. 4 On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Literally "the mountain of the olive trees" which faces Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in half, from east to west, by a very great valley; and half of the mountain will withdraw toward the north and the other half toward the south. 5 And you will flee by the valley of my mountains, because the valley of the mountains will reach to Azal, and you will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of King Uzziah of Judah. And Yahweh my God will come, and all the holy ones with him. Hebrew "you"; LXX has "him" 6 And then it will happen on that day there will not be light, the precious things will congeal, take shape. [Consummation of the New Covenant Jesus came in power to remove the Old Convent before 70 AD.] 7 There shall be continuous day—it is known to Yahweh—not day and not night; and at evening time there will be light. Day and light are often used to describe the glory of God shining in Judgment. 8 And then Literally "And it will happen" on that day, living waters will flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea, That is, the Dead Sea and the other half to the western sea; That is, the Mediterranean Sea it will happen both in the summer and in the winter. 9 And Yahweh will be king over all the earth; on that day Yahweh will be one and his name one.
In Zechariah 14 Prophecy of Jerusalem fall, the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, His feet on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem on the east (He will come from the East) split the East and the West, a large valley. One-half of the mountain moves north and the other moves south. This already did happen. Before 70 A.D. Earthquakes at the destruction of Jerusalem.
Romans 13:12 12 Night's darkness is dissolving away as a new day of destiny dawns. So, we must once and for all strip away what is done in the shadows of darkness, removing it like filthy clothes. And once and for all we clothe ourselves with the radiance of light as our weapon. 13 We must live honorably, surrounded by the light of this new day, not in the darkness of drunkenness and debauchery, not in promiscuity and sensuality, not being argumentative or jealous of others.
Zechariah 12:10 to 13:1 Lexham English Bible 10 I will pour on the house of David and the inhabitant of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication, and they will look to me whom they pierced, and they shall mourn over him, as one wail over an only child, and they will grieve bitterly over him as one grieves bitterly over a firstborn. 11 On that day the wailing will be great in Jerusalem, like the wailing for Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. 12 And the land shall mourn, each tribe by itself; the tribes of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the tribes of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; 13 the tribes of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the tribes of the Shimeites by itself, and their wives by themselves; 14 and all those tribes remaining, each tribe by itself, and their wives by themselves.'"13:1"' On that day a foundation will be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and impurity.
If you read Josephus "The War" you will be overwhelmed by the destruction of Jerusalem, the commonwealth of Israel and the temple destruction with the sacrificial system abolished. Why? To bring in the New Everlasting Covenant for all Jews & non-Jews. All Humanity will know him.
A New Humanity
Ephesians 2:11-22 11–12 So don't forget that you were not born as Jews and were uncircumcised (circumcision itself is just a work of man's hands); you had none of the Jewish covenants and laws; you were foreigners to Israel's incredible heritage; or "freedom," or "commonwealth." you were without the covenants and prophetic promises of the Messiah, the promised hope, and without God. 13 Yet look at you now! Everything is new! Although you were once distant and far away from God, now you have been brought delightfully close to him through the sacred blood of Jesus—you have been united to Christ!
14 Our reconciling "Peace" is Jesus! He has made Jew and non-Jew one in Christ. By dying as our sacrifice, he has broken down every wall of prejudice that separated us and has now made us equal through our union with Christ. 15 Ethnic hatred has been dissolved by the crucifixion of his precious body on the cross. The legal code that stood condemning every one of us has now been repealed by his command. His triune essence has made peace between us by starting over—forming [ The Greek is "to create in himself one new man. "one new race of humanity, or "one new man." Jews and non-Jews fused together! 16 Two have now become one, and we live restored to God and reconciled in the body of Christ. Through his crucifixion, hatred died. 17 For the Messiah has come to preach this sweet message of peace to you, this is Paul's paraphrase of Isaiah 57:19 the ones who were distant, and to those who are near. 18 And now, because we are united to Christ, we both have equal and direct access in the realm of the Holy Spirit to come before the Father!
19 So, you are not foreigners or guests, but rather you are the children of the city of the holy ones, with all the rights as family members of the household of God. 20 You are rising like the perfectly fitted stones of the temple, or rising as the yeast planted deep inside you. The "temple" is now your literal body. and your lives are being built up together upon the ideal foundation laid by the apostles and prophets, and best of all, you are connected to the Head Cornerstone of the building, the Anointed One, Jesus Christ himself!
21 This entire building is under construction and is continually growing under his supervision until it rises up completed as the holy temple of the Lord himself. 22 This means that God is transforming each one of you into the Holy of Holies, his dwelling place, through the power of the Holy Spirit living in you!
Not a place to worship, not a new temple made
with hands, not a Jerusalem location. But a living temple in all people for the
accomplishment of Jesus Christ redeeming all of man from the destruction of the
"tree of good and evil." To be able to live from the "tree of
life." The everlasting "Tree of Life" which has transformed our
thinking into the powerful Love of the One True Living God.
The Mystery of Israel's Restoration
Romans 11:25-32 25 My beloved brothers and sisters, I want to share with you The Greek text contains a litotes, a double negative: "I don't want you to not know." a mystery The Greek word for mystery, mystērion, is found twenty-eight times in the New Testament. It means a sacred secret, something that God has hidden from ancient times and that can only be revealed by God. Jesus teaches us that these mysteries are meant for us to perceive as part of our kingdom birthright.
The mystery Paul unfolds for us here is her future salvation as part of God's eternal plan for the nations. concerning Israel's future. For understanding, this mystery will keep you from thinking you already know everything. A partial and temporary hardening The Greek word for hardening, porosis, can also mean stubbornness, an unwillingness to learn something new or a medical condition as a bone increased translucency. to the gospel has come over Israel, which will last until the full number of non-Jews has come into God's family. 26 And then God will bring all of Israel to salvation! The prophecy will be fulfilled that says: "Coming from Zion will be the Savior, and he will turn Jacob away from evil. 27 For this is my covenant promise with them when I forgive their sins." 28 Now, many of the Jews are opposed to the gospel, but their opposition has opened the door of the gospel to you who are not Jewish. Yet they are still greatly loved by God because their ancestors were divinely chosen to be his. 29 And when God chooses someone and graciously imparts gifts to him, they are never rescinded or "the grace-gifts and calling of God are void of regret and without change in purpose."
30 You who are not Jews were once rebels against God, but now, because of their disobedience, you have experienced God's tender mercies. 31 And now they are the rebels, and because of God's tender mercies to you, you can open the door to them to share in and enjoy what God has given to us! 32 God considers all of humanity to be prisoners of their unbelief so that he can unlock our hearts and show his tender mercies to all who come to him.
See Isaiah 59:20-21, Isaiah 27:9, Jeremiah 31:33-34
The Parables of Jesus
Matthew 13:11 He explained, "You've been given the intimate experience of insight into the hidden truths and mysteries The Greek word musterion is found twenty-seven times in the New Testament and means "secrets" or "mysteries." The mysteries of heaven's kingdom realm are spiritual insights into the nature and ways of God. Jesus Christ can only be fully understood by the spirit, not merely by the intellect of man. Jesus taught his disciples using the cryptic language of parables to move them beyond intellectual abilities and engage the spirit. If the listener had a hunger to learn with an open, teachable heart, then Jesus' words brought life and understanding. We must always be those who push aside our opinions and traditions to glean the deepest meaning of all that Jesus did and taught.
See Job 15:8; Proverbs 3:32; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Colossians 2:2; 4:3
Zechariah 10:12 I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and supplication so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced: they will mourn for Him as one who mourns for an only son, and they will mourn in Jerusalem.
Revelation 1:7 Behold! He appears within the clouds, and every
eye will see him, even those who pierced him. And all the tribes of the earth
will weep with sorrow because of him. And so, it is to be! Amen.
Revelation 1:1 This is the unveiling of Jesus Christ, The Greek noun apokalypsis is a compound word found eighteen times in the New Testament. It combines apo (to lift) with lypsis (veil, covering), and so could be translated "the lifting of the veil" or "the unveiling." The implication could be stated simply, "Here he is!" which God gave him to share with his loving servants This is the Greek word doulos, which means "bondservant," a slave who willingly remains with his master even after being given his freedom. what must occur swiftly. The Greek phrase en tachos (similar to "tachometer") means that once something starts, it will take place swiftly. He made it known The Greek is "signified" or "miracle-sign." The word for miracle-sign is the Greek verb sēmainō, which means "to give a sign." The Aramaic likewise can be translated "symbolized." The book of Revelation is a book full of symbols. by sending his angel Angels are instrumental in imparting divine revelation. This angel sent from Jesus was on a mission to give John insights into the meaning of the visions within the book of Revelation that were coming soon and wouldn't be stopped (22:6, 8, 16) to his loving servant John.
Notice the chain of communication:
(1) God gave the revelation directly to Jesus.
(2) Jesus gave it to an angel.
(3) The angel explained it to John.
(4) John gives it to the 7 churches of that time, they were to follow the instructions, get out of Jerusalem, sell what you have and go out spread the gospel all God's servants.
Revelation 1:2-9 I, John, bore witness to the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. 3 A joyous blessing or "happiness to one who reads." The book of Revelation is the only book in the Bible that promises a rich blessing to those who read and obey what it states. The word blessing can mean "happiness." There are six other "blessings" found in Revelation (14:13; 16:15; 19:9; 20:5; 22:7, 14). rests upon the one who reads this message and upon those who hear and embrace the words of this prophecy, for the appointed time is at hands. The Greek adverb eggus is taken from a primary verb agcho, which means "to squeeze" (in your hands) or "to hold the reigns" (or "throttle" in your hands). There is a sense in which the full understanding of the book of Revelation is ready to be unveiled when the reader. The time for this revelation is now, not the past nor the distant future. See also 1 Peter 1:5 5 Through our faith, the mighty power of God constantly guards us until our full salvation is ready to be revealed in the last days. "The end of the old covenant age is coming the consummation within 40 years of grace given".
4 From John to the seven churches in Asia Minor: May the kindness of God's grace and peace overflow to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, God dwells in these three realms (present, past, and future) and from the seven spirits the Holy Spirit can be seven in one. See Isaiah 11:2-3; Zechariah. 4:1-10; Revelations 3:1; 4:5; 5:6. who is in front of his throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ the Faithful Witness, the Firstborn from among the dead! He is the Firstborn who conquered death! and the ruling King, who rules over the kings of the earth! Now to the one who constantly loves us and has loosed us from our sins by his blood, 6 and to the one who has made us rule as a kingly priesthood Christ is the one who "made us" into this holy order and union. It is already done.
See Revelation 5:10 to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and dominion throughout the eternity of eternities! Amen! 7 Behold! He appears within the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him. The ones who were there watching at his crucifixion. And all the people tribes of the earth will weep with sorrow because of him. And so, it is to be! Amen. 8 "I am the Alpha/first and the Omega/last," says the Lord God, "who is, who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." 9 I, John, am your brother and companion in tribulation, the kingdom, and the patience that are found in Jesus. I was exiled on the island of Patmos because of the ministry of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 10 I was in the spirit realm on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice sounding like a trumpet, 11 saying to me: Write in a book what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamum, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and Laodicea.
Daniel Chapter 9-11 sealed up the prophecy that is now being opened up to John as the angel says "now is the time." Get the Revelation of Jesus out. This is the coming of the Consummation of the New Covenant in Jesus Christ, the redeemer of all men. Jesus Christ has the universal dominion over the earth again, which was lost by Adam & Eve.

Daniel 13:31 And forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation. Desecrating of the sanctuary was set up. The abomination of desolation was set up. No regular sacrifice, Jews fall by plunder, captivity, by the sword and by flame, Jerusalem's city burns.
Daniel 11:36-39 36 "Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. 37 He shall regard neither the God of his father’s [for he was Caesar the King] nor the desire of women, [Nero was with men] nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. 38 But in their place, he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things. 39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain. No regard for any other God: he is God. Caesar is worshiped by the Jews.
Daniel 11:41 He shall also enter the Beautiful Land. It was Jerusalem.
Daniel 11:45 And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain, yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him. Nero will come to an end and no one will help him. Nero committed suicide but didn't die he fulfills scripture the beast will die and return.
Daniel 12:11 "And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. From the time Jesus sets up his ministry, it is 1,260 days or 3.5 years.
Christianity is the new yeast/rising to bring heaven to earth
Matthew 13:33 Yeast is added to flour and then one waits until the dough rises.
Luke 13:21 it works unseen until it permeates and infiltrates the entire batch until it rises high.
I Corinthians 5:8 We don't feast on old leaven the yeast of wickedness or bitterness, but we feast on fresh bread baked of innocence and holiness.
Think about this, if Christ is now the owner of the one new race of humanity since he resurrected from the dead and won back the one new humanity from evil. He is in charge, He is in every person, with the glory of God, created by God in each person. God is the creator and everything you see and everything you don't see.
In time he reveals himself to every person. Has he revealed himself to you? It could have been at a young age, as a teen or even later age. He will do it.
Psalms 24:7 So, wake up, you living gateways! Lift your heads, your ageless doors of destiny! Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you.
Every life is different. Different calling, a different job, different ministries, different families & different seasons. So, let us all call on God for his love.
Psalms 31:15 My life, my every moment, my destiny—it's all in your hands. So, I know you can deliver me from those who persecute me relentlessly.
When I was 11, I was laying on the grass in my front yard looking at the stars and the heavens above. Then something I never experienced before happened. God revealed himself to me in that "awe" moment in my mind. Realizing the power, majesty, and overflowing feeling, I was with the one who made it all. After that night I went to church with a different presence. That year I went to a church camp and receive Jesus Christ as my Lord. As I grew up many different situations came my way and I wanted to make the best directions. The yeast/leaven had exploded open into me. It was always there. That moment made an explosion for God the Father to work through me. He woke me up. I think back to that night and I still understand that present moment with Him.
We all make tough choices, desiring to make the best decision at the time. As time flies you realize some were terrific and some not so much. Learning is our lot in life. Ever learning is our lot in life. Ever learning is unstoppable.
Powerful decisions are made every day that will transform our minds and hearts. As the leaven of being a follower of Christ grows deeper and deeper, you have more clarity when starting to weigh out your decisions. Starting to ease your mind of who you are. It starts permeating and infiltrating your vision and how you see what used to be dull is bright and personal. The infiltration of words takes hold of your thinking to realize life is valuable, your life is put in motion for a time of understanding to magnify the one who speaks purely.
Clarity is desired to make the right decision visible. 2020 is a year of clarity if you will let him speak. Resist the old voice in your mind. 2020 is a clear vision. Maybe you need clear vision spiritually and do not forget physically, as a sign that you are getting clarity from the Lord.
2020 is a year of clarity, opening of revelation to this season in the church. "The old voices have caused grooves in your thinking" explains Dr. Carolyn Leaf. She is one of the top leading brain experts. It takes renewing your mind to set yourself on that clear path forward. It works well when you worship and praise the Lord. When you thank him, show respect, honor and give him glory. Forgiveness is a healing power many need to receive. Let go and let God comfort you.
The old dry unleavened mind of past regrets and consequences must be put away, to run the true race ahead of you. As you realize the future is your only hope, you can run the race and miss the potholes. Let go of the melting pot of distractions, old behaviors, & unforgiveness. Move into purification and the explosion of the leaven of the Lord our God. He is in you. Let him love you. Sit, rest, breathe, now. The refiner's fire is for all, it creates oneness with God. It draws us drags us to Him. WOW!
Tell him your deepest pain, your saddest trauma. He will comfort you. I know. He will pour into you something you have never felt before. Just sit and think about a love you have always wanted to have. A time in your life when you just wanted to know that there is perfect love for your broken spirit, your broken body, your broken mind, and your shattered heart.
Sit, rest, breathe, now……... Stop.
Sit, rest, breathe, tell him what you want. Believe with your imagination, see what you want. See with your heart and mind agree to create the desires of your heart. You can receive what you need believe.
He doesn't care if your angry, don't believe in Him, try it anyway.
My God will come through for you. Don’t pray and beg heal me. Declare thanks for healing me. Believe in your heart and receive in your mind the wisdom of God who said you are already healed.
Purification is the result of all. The Refiners fire is the way of knowing God the Father. We all are chastised, sometimes turning back to our vomit over and over. Only to realize I have caused many bad things to happen to myself. I allowed my environment, family, friends, even things that I had no control over to offend me and set me at odds against God. Instead of realizing that it is always between God and me, not the other person and me. Shall I not let God who is willing to forgive and work in me direct my mind. I will not let others torment me. Give me the right response to turn to you in pain, abuse, or turmoil.
God, I want to choose you now, again and again. I want this love to last, to be able to trust that there is a one true God that has created a universe that will include every hurting heart and every tormented mind.
Father give me the clarity to feel your presence.
The power within you will draw you to a place of rising. The dough is filled with the yeast and it is set aside in a warm place of your mind. As it grows, time goes by. Your mind has glimpses of clarity. Your mind perceives your direction and glimmers with warm expectation. It draws you to a new day, a new season, a new purpose to vision and direction.
You pick yourself up with the help of wisdom and truth. To pursue another day and maybe a new direction. Your processing at a higher level than you could have imagined last season.
No matter the direction you take, you are still being influenced by the yeast of Christianity. No matter if that was your intention, thought, or desire, you have no choice, his love is in you. Return it to him.
Proverbs 1:4 These proverbs will give you great skill to teach the immature and make them wise, to give youth the understanding of their design and destiny.
Why not just accept the fact that the Creator of Heaven and Earth and all that we see and do not see, loves you. He is not going to let you go. You can kick and scream all you want. But let me tell you his love for you is amazing. Take a risk. He is trustworthy. It's between you and HIM.
The yeast is set into the dough/life of the bread/person and it will not/cannot come out. No matter how hard you try and change your outcome. Papa God's love has been mingled within you, and he has declared you are His.
You will never be left alone. He will never leave you; he will never forsake you; he will never let you down. To never be let down may mean, you need to depend on Him.
Proverbs 20:24 It is the Lord who directs your life, for each step you take is ordained by God to bring you closer to your destiny. So much of your life, then, remains a mystery!
The powerful truth can set your heart and mind to agree. As you seek to understand how can this be? You will come to know His presence in you. You will hear a small still voice, go this way.
Jesus Prophesies about the Holy Spirit
John 14:15-21 15 "Loving me empowers you to obey my commands. 16–17 And I will ask the Father and he will give you another Savior, the Holy Spirit of Truth, who will be to you a friend just like me—and he will never leave you. The world won't receive him because they can't see him or know him. But you will know him intimately because he will make his home in you and will live inside you. 18 "I promise that I will never leave you helpless or abandon you as orphans—I will come back to you! 19 Soon I will leave this world and they will see me no longer, but you will see me, because I will live again, and you will come alive too. 20 So when that day comes, you will know that I am living in the Father and that you are one with me, for I will be living in you. 21 Those who truly love me are those who obey my commands. Whoever passionately loves me will be passionately loved by my Father. And I will passionately love you in return and will manifest my life within you."
Stop-go back a few steps, move forward. This is life, pick yourself up, try again. You are not alone. You are infiltrated by the greatest love the world has ever known.
"The sacrifice of Jesus is the essence of renunciation; it was a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling savor." The death of Jesus was not as satisfaction paid to the justice of God – a hideous statement which the Bible nowhere makes. The death of Jesus was the exact revelation of the justice of God. When we read of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. It is the sacrifice of God also.
God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. When Jesus Christ lifts the veil from his consciousness, he makes it clear that His death was not the death of the martyr.
John 10:18 I surrender my own life, and no one has the power to take my life from me. I have the authority to lay it down and the power to take it back again. This is the destiny my Father has set before me."
Our Lord laid down His life for one purpose, the express purpose in the mind of God;
He is the Lamb of God which took away the sin of the world!
By His death and resurrection from the dead, He is seated in Heaven.
Psalms 33:11 His destiny-plan for the earth stands sure. His forever-plan remains in place and will never fail.
Jesus Christ came to our realm, the created realm of the earth where Adam was created in time. Jesus Christ came in the form of a man in the flesh. Jesus Christ emptied himself by doing what the Father called him to do. He came not for his own will but the will of our loving Father. Our Father wants all his children present with him. His compassion is for you, His hope is for you. His glorious being lives in you. You can't be separated from a God who made you and spoke everything into being. Don't trust my words, take time to check him out for yourself. Are you a Jew? No problem you have the leaven of Jesus in you. Believe the Messiah came. He did. Receive freedom in Christ.
John 19:15 But they screamed out, "Take him away! Take him away and crucify him!" Pilate replied, "Shall I nail your king to a cross?" The high priests answered, "We have no other king but Caesar!"
If you are Jewish reading this, you were not there. But Jesus ended the Old Covenant with the ending of Israel's Common-Wealth, the temple worship was abolished and the sacrificial system was closed. For Jesus established the New Covenant for all Mankind that is you.
Your forefathers were divorced from Jesus. But when he rose from the dead he went to paradise where your forefathers were sleeping and rescued them from there slumber. To a glorious home in heaven. Remember Jesus said forgive them.
Luke 23:34 While they were nailing Jesus to the cross, he prayed over and over, "Father, forgive them, for they don't know what they're doing." The soldiers, after they crucified him, gambled over his clothing.
Romans 11:27 For this is my covenant promise with them when I forgive their sins."
Luke 5:22-23 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said to them, "Why do you argue in your hearts over what I do and think that it is blasphemy for me to say his sins are forgiven? Let me ask you, which is easier to prove: when I say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or when I say, 'Stand up, carry your stretcher, and walk'?" Jesus turned to the paraplegic man and said,
Hebrews 8:12 For I will demonstrate my mercy to them and will forgive their evil deeds, and never remember again their sins."
1 John 1:9 But if we freely admit our sins when his light uncovers them, he will be faithful to forgive us every time. God is just to forgive us of our sins because of Christ, and he will continue to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Acts 2:23 This Man's destiny was prearranged, for God knew that Jesus would be handed over to you to be crucified and that you would execute him on a cross by the hands of lawless men. Yet it was all part of his predetermined plan.
Proverbs 20:24 It is the Lord who directs your life, for each step you take is ordained by God to bring you closer to your destiny. So much of your life, then, remains a mystery!
Jesus Christ lived here on this earth to show us how to see
what the original man Adam was created of God.
We are now able to live from the only tree of life. Jesus himself conquered the captivity against
the man from the "Tree of Good & Evil" to the restoration power
of God. God won all humanity back by the precious blood of an innocent and the
holy man, Jesus Christ. In the Atonement, we have become one with Jesus Christ
and his being is in union with God.
Jesus Finished the Father's Work
John 17:1-5 1 This is what Jesus prayed as he looked up into heaven, "Father, the time has come. Unveil the glorious splendor of your Son so that I will magnify your glory! 2 You have already given me authority overall people so that I may give the gift of eternal life to all those that you have given to me. 3 Eternal life means to know and experience you as the only true God, and to know and experience Jesus Christ, as the Son whom you have sent. 4 I have glorified you on the earth by faithfully doing everything you've told me to do. 5 So my Father, restore me to the glory that we shared when we were face-to-face before the universe was created."
Acts 20:24 "But whether I live or die is not important, for I don't esteem my life as indispensable. It's more important for me to fulfill my destiny and to finish the ministry my Lord Jesus has assigned to me, which is to faithfully preach the wonderful news of God's grace.
Acts 26:16 Get up and stand to your feet, for I have appeared to you to reveal your destiny and to commission you as my assistant. You will be a witness to what you have seen and to the things I will reveal whenever I appear to you.
Romans 3:25 Jesus' God-given destiny was to be the sacrifice to take away sins, and now he is our mercy seat because of his death on the cross. We come to Him for mercy, for God has made a provision for us to be forgiven by faith in the sacred blood of Jesus. This is the perfect demonstration of God's justice, because until now, he had been so patient—holding back his justice out of his tolerance for us. So, he covered over the sins of those who lived before Jesus' sacrifice.
Song of Songs 2:13
Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you?
The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth.
The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere.
The fragrance of their flower whispers, "There is the change in the air."
Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to the higher place.
For now, is the time to arise and come away with me.
