The Key is in Leverage

Rely on My experience. As we move together, harmoniously and joyfully, we expand our effectiveness.

Meditation Thought: “Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister.” (Romans 14:13)

“Take my yoke, for it is designed to carry much more as we go in double-yoke than you can carry alone. Concentrate on perfecting your movements in coordination, not looking back as to the character of the load, or as to its size. It matters not: as we pull together, coming to know each other and how to work together, we will pull larger and larger loads, loads which would be difficult were it not for My knowledge of how to manage them.

Rely on My experience in hauling every type of load, and every quantity of load – simply imitate my movements by closely observing all I do. The key is in leverage: the use of the abilities the Father created in the proper manner and in the proper sequence, according to the principles of Spirit and matter which He reveals through Me to you. By My obedience unto suffering and unto death, I have perfected in human form the movements in harmony with these principles. As by faith you yoke yourself to Me, you feel My movements tugging on you. Adjust yourself to feel comfortable and coordinated with My movements.

As we move together, harmoniously and joyfully, we expand our effectiveness step by step through your life on earth. Thus is the Father’s will done on earth as it is in heaven.

Infinitely More Healthy

Obedience is easier when the Word is saturating your mind and subconscious.

Meditation Thought: “…present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. (Romans 12:1)

As you can learn to bring health by proper nutrition, so you can learn to bring health by proper spiritual food: you are ‘wonderfully made’ – many interrelated and interacting parts, which need to be kept is good working order. Sin would rob you of the best health of body, mind and spirit. By the sacrifice of choosing what is healthy instead of choosing what is appealing at that moment, you bring the blessing of the peace of a healthy body, mind and spirit. The healthy foods are all listed in your nutritional handbook: Read it every day that your choice of all the foods may be healthy: the physical food, the spiritual food. Only by the power of obedience to God being released can you have the willpower to choose healthy foods over those which are deceitfully appealing as prepared by Satan.

Obedience is easier when the Word is saturating your mind and subconscious. ‘Brainwash’ yourself with the Word, for this kind of cleansing of old sinful thoughts will purify your mind and renew it with the thoughts of the Father being fed into it. His thoughts prompt actions which are within His will, and acting in His will is the presentation of a holy body to Him as sacrifice. You sacrifice your own will but in doing so, His will is given to you – and His will is infinitely more healthy, more desirable, more rewarding to you than your own will.

You Choose Your Inheritance

You are responsible as to your choice of parents – a seemingly impossible situation. It is possible because…

Meditation Thought: “This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as descendants.” (Romans 9:8)

“You have been given a measure of faith, you have been given the promise in the Word, you have been given free will. What are you doing with your gifts? Are you using them as they are intended? Are you enjoying them? Are they changing you and changing those whom you know and whom you meet?

Every particle of time, every particle of matter, every particle of spirit has its purpose and meaning. Sense this purpose and meaning with your spirit, your mind, your emotions, your will – the history of the world and of the Kingdom is shaped and revealed by this awareness in each soul. You are responsible as to your choice of parents – a seemingly impossible situation. It is possible because your free will may be exercised to choose to be a descendant of the promise (i.e. Jesus), or a descendant only of the world. You choose your inheritance rather than being born into it. Choose carefully among the choices of inheritances available; ‘looks’ can be deceiving. A casual glance determining your choice will bring you grief; a determined effort to explore the depth of every inheritance before choosing will reap eternal joy.

Do not be envious that while some play, you are working at detecting the nature of all the possible inheritances available: your joy will be in your discoveries, bit by bit, and your growing confidence in your final choice bringing eternal joy to you and by your example, to others also.

Take heart, keep on keeping on, by the strength of example put before you by those who have gone before you, living and dead, who reveal to you the depths of possible inheritances if you will ask them and trust them to do this for you.

I have set before you a task; I have set before you the tools, and I have set before you a reward. The choice is yours – to take up the tools and to work, or to sit idly by, wasting the energy and the talent given to you by love. But one thing should you remember: there will come a day by which you give account of your choice, and you may not even realize that the day has come until much of it is over. Think about that. Prepare to defend your choice from the moment you commit yourself one way or the other, that when the final accounting overtakes you, you are in confidence prepared to defend your choice.”

Claim it Now

Follow Me to your new nature in Christ, reflecting the character of your Father, expressed in your unique personality and expressed where you are.

Meditation Thought: “For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.  And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.” (Romans 8:16-17)

“Trust Me when you have pain – for the pain is caused by the digging out of the infection of sin that has set in your body, your mind, your spirit, your emotions. When the last of the infection is rooted out, the health of righteousness pervades and prevails.

In this world, the process is constant but when you shed the physical body for the new body, the only state of the new body is health in the Spirit, unchallenged by sin.

Yield to Me – relax whatever the moment brings forth, for I am your loving Father who desires above all that you prosper in My care and in My teaching.

Seek My will and obey Me – this is the process of being crucified with Christ, for you must go against your own sinful nature, and the battle is constant and at times very difficult, for that sinful nature can be very hard and very misleading as to its true nature.

But you are My heir, and knowing you are My heir – go with confidence to claim your inheritance: eternal life, yes – but the full life in the Spirit now:

  • sin conquered
  • soul prospering
  • body prospering
  • a mind renewed in Christ
  • emotions guilt-free and rejoicing in My blessings and works in your life and those whom you know.

I will lead if you will follow – do not turn back to sin, to self-will, to rebellion, to selfishness and pride – but follow Me to your new nature in Christ, reflecting the character of your Father, expressed in your unique personality and expressed where you are, and delighting in the doing of the works.”

Impossible Explanations

You shall receive by revelation what is impossible to receive by explanation.

Meditation Thought: “ Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:1)

You shall receive by revelation what is impossible to receive by explanation. Only through faith exercised in trust can revelation be released. And only through belief in the promises of the Word can faith be exercised. Assuming the premise that the Word is the Truth, and acting upon that premise moves your mind and your spirit into a hidden realm – the realm of the Kingdom. You can, at will, move in and out of the Kingdom from the world. But through the conscious seeking of the constant infilling of the Holy Spirit, you can dwell in the Kingdom and commune with the world at the same time.

Think of your choosing of a place to live: you can be a citizen of the United States, but still reside in another country. Or you can choose, as a citizen, to live within your own country, with all its attendant privileges and protection and compatibility. As a believer, your home is the Kingdom, and you keep your residence within it by the opening up of yourself to the filling of the Holy Spirit.

You can still communicate and affect and be affected by the citizens of the other countries (the ‘world’) – but your first loyalty is the the Kingdom and your decisions must be based upon your residence within the Kingdom.

The beauty of God’s plan is that your loyalty to the Kingdom does not in any way harm the citizens residing in the world, and, in fact is beneficial to them. At the point where it becomes beneficial to the point that they wish to become citizens of the Kingdom in order to reside in its superior atmosphere, the great commission is being fulfilled.

Promises Kept

The method of fulfilling the requirements to move God’s word of promise to God’s works completed is: “Seek first the Kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Meditation Thought: “No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. That is why his faith was “counted to him as righteousness.” (Romans 4:20-22)

A promise is only a potential until it is believed enough to be acted upon. Your belief prompting you to action, despite obstacles arising against that action, is the means of the promise moving from potential to actual. The actions take to fulfill God’s promises have a power found nowhere else, for these actions are backed by a guarantee of success by the One who promised. His power is the one power that can adapt to any obstacle which might thwart fulfillment of the promise. But the power must be activated by faith when an obstacle is encountered. The promise is true but it comes into fulfillment only when the one promised cooperates in making it come true by fulfilling the requirements set down by the Promiser. If the promise is not fulfilled, it is not due to the promise being false, nor the Promiser being unable to keep His promise: it is due to the ‘promisee’ not fully following the requirements needed for the progression from spoken word to actual deed. The method of fulfilling the requirements to move God’s word of promise to God’s works completed is: “Seek first the Kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you.”

The Connecting Link

Lack of full knowledge does not preclude the receipt of some knowledge.

Meditation Thought: “ …for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith.” (Romans 3:23-25)

“Jesus, Jesus, Jesus – the world cannot contain, nor explain, the connotation of the Name: only in the glories and wisdom of heaven can this be comprehended. But lack of full knowledge does not preclude the receipt of some knowledge. Seek the meaning, the power, the love in the name of Jesus and all this name represents: this name is the gold, the key, the satisfaction, the fulfillment, the goal for which all seek, whether it is recognized or not.

Praise, praise, praise – praise intensifies trust and trust intensifies faith and faith intensifies the conforming of your will to My will for you: our wills emmeshed, fitting together into one harmonious, beautiful, strong and loving expression of My Spirit living within you and working within you and manifesting Myself through you into the world. For this purpose did Jesus Christ appear as man, suffer as man, die as man – and then reappear and does appear as Spirit, to guide you to the safety and to the joy of salvation forevermore, peace in your time on earth and the realization of love and grace, in earth and in heaven.

As you take the Word into your mind, it transforms your mind to conform it to the mind of Christ, whose mind is conformed to the Father’s will and instruction. Christ is the connecting link between the Divine will and the free will; between the Original and the image; between the Eternal and the temporal. The connection between Myself as Father and Christ as Son is ever firm, the connection between Christ and each soul is ever possible. It depends upon only one factor: each soul must choose to plug into that source of power which is waiting, which is visible and available, made so by My love and My grace and My wisdom.

Will you connect yourself firmly and continuously to this power? If so, your shining light will reveal the method of connection, the possibility of connection, the desirability of connection to all who know you.

I would have you be a powerful light: choose to make effort to be that light, connected and My power flowing through you will change your life from one of a life-light turned to “off” and a life-light turned to “on”. You need the connection of the Way and the switch in you turned to “on” by the infilling of the Spirit to shine powerfully and fully as you were designed to do.”

Travel Plans

I am with you to help you around, over or through all obstacles.

Meditation Thought: “For he has made known to us in all wisdom and insight the mystery of his will, according to his purpose which he has set forth in Christ as a plan for the fulness of time, to unite all things to him, things in heaven and things on earth.” (Ephesians 1:9-10)

“When you start along a highway, you can only trust that it reaches the destination you desire – you cannot see that destination. The only way you can experience the reality of the highway leading to this destination is to travel it, despite distractions and detours.

Experience the reality of the highway of My people! Many have travelled it before you, and written of the Way. Their experiences will aid you, encourage you. Read every book, seek every source of information of how to travel the road of My believers which leads to Me. You can move swiftly, accurately, confidently if you use every means at your disposal to make the journey be all that I intended it to be: exciting, but releasing a confidence of peace in the trust of My help along the way for every roadblock Satan sets before you.

Take each step in trust, knowing that I am with you to help you around, over or through all obstacles which would keep you from the destination. But your free will is the key to being stuck or to moving on when you encounter an obstacle. Pause, think, pray every time anything slows your movement. Together we shall move to the completion of the journey – slowly or speedily, pleasantly or painfully, confidently or hesitantly, inspiringly or ploddingly, in good humor or grumbling, trustingly or doubtfully – the manner of the movement depends upon you. Jesus has travelled the way and made His travelogue available that the pitfalls may be avoided, that the road may be well-marked for you. But if you do not consult His book nor look at His signs, you stumble and detour – and wonder why the trip is difficult.

Read your instructions, heed your instructions, fill yourself with the power of the Spirt to move you – opening your mind, your heart, your will to heavenly fuel – but closing them to the blandishments, the deceits, the temptations of the fuel offered by Satan. You have the knowledge of which is good fuel and which is evil fuel if you are in My Word and My Will. You are in My Word and My Will if you are walking in the steps of My Son. He has prepared the way that you might come quickly, even easily, to our Kingdom. Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you: if you adhere to His steps, if you seek His nourishment, you walk in the Kingdom extended along from spiritual to physical, reaching into a portion of the Kingdom while you are moving toward the fulness of the Kingdom.”

Strength in Construction

When it appears that destructive forces enter into your life, it is only an illusion.

Meditation Thought: “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

“When you must reach to build another up, it stretches your own muscles and builds you up at the same time. What may appear to be difficult for you, and a sacrifice for you, is actually the means of perfecting and purifying you and accomplishing My plan for you. With this knowledge held in your heart, you will be able to reach further, to work harder and give of yourself more than you even thought possible.

My will is always to build – not destroy – when it appears that destructive forces enter into your life, it is only an illusion – for all forces are at My command to build, to work good, to complete My plan. Your view of some of the forces is not the same as Mine and therefore you must trust that from My view they are building and not destroying. Their force to build is variable, however, according to your ability to cooperate with Me in the applying of the forces in the proper places at the proper time.

To work together to use the forces speedily and properly, you must become adept in My methods of work. These are not the methods used by the world. These are the methods revealed to you through My instructions, and only as you study these instruction and understand them and obey them can you become a competent builder. The more quickly you learn My methods, the more building you will accomplish. Do not dawdle and slowly read the instructions – grasp them quickly and firmly in your hand, and devour them with your eyes – then quickly get to work to use them to accomplish My will in your life and in other lives which you are helping to build. I want a whole city – a whole Kingdom – of beautiful edifices, not just an edifice to My glory here and there.

Picture yourself as creating a beautiful, sparkling area wherever you are working, whatever you are doing. That is exactly what I do, and precisely why when apparently destructive forces appear that they are needed: they are clearing out the decay which has accumulated so that the new beauty will be unmarred!”

Gourmet Cooking

It takes time and effort to learn to cook God’s gourmet meals – but the results are so outstanding that we can be only glad that we spent our time and effort in learning to cook in this manner.

Meditation Thought: “Let your speech at all times be gracious and pleasant, seasoned with salt, so that you will know how to answer each one [who questions you].” (Colossians 4:6 AMP)

A good cook is accomplished because they have had experience. Just pouring ingredients together in any mixture or any proportion does not make a tasty dish, and in fact, can make on that is actually harmful or wasteful.

We can become good cooks with the ingredients God provides for us (His Word, His Spirit, our minds, our bodies, our spirit) – only if we follow His recipes and advice as to how to use and mix these ingredients. Even then, the more time and effort we spend in “cooking”, the better we will become at producing tasty, nutritious and attractive dishes for ourselves and for others. We must learn that perfect proportion and method to produce the best result for the particular dish we are preparing – for no salt can make a dish too bland to be interesting, and too much salt can make it unpalatable.

It takes time and effort to learn to cook God’s gourmet meals – but the results are so outstanding that when we are enjoying the dish, and others are enjoying it, we can be only glad that we spent our time and effort in learning to cook in this manner.
