I'm with you, Molly. My head is spinning too, but so help me God,
I made a statement that is so true when I said "we" have the mind
of Christ. "WE"........the body is speaking to one another here in
this thread, I hear HIM in all .......I was so excited about this thread
that I wore myself out making notes of all kinds yesterday when I
could. And the beauty of the ONE thru the "all" is sticking out to me
more and more. I believe that God is allowing the "leaves" of the
tree, the "words of healing" ........to be "discerned" .......if God did
not open our ears, we would never "hear" nothing! It is God that
doth all things well. It is God! It is God! It is never "never" we who
can do it! It is by His GRACE! It is a Gift! His Son is a Gift! And
there "are" those that are "figuratively" speaking for HIM. There
is a verse coming to my mind now about the "sanctified" ones. And
those that He "sanctified" are one.For it became HIM for whom are
all things by whom are all things, in bringing "many" Sons to make
the Captain of their salvation PERFECT thru sufferings. So "both" He
sanctified and "they who ARE sanctified" are all of one...for which
cause HE is not ashamed to call them brethren.
I awoke at 3 am again and could
not "wait" to start typing. It is God's way of speaking "to me"
sometimes "thru me" .......as well as others, I am getting it figured
out "while" I am typing. He is certainly not just speaking to others
but first of all to me. For us, I "hear" ......where the carcase is,
there will"I" be. Where the "sanctified" ones are. Where those that
truly belong to ME, that search for ME with "all" their heart, and
figuratively transfer ME to themselves, tho they appear as fools
to others, they make themselves fools that they may be wise!
There is a "carcase" where this bunch gathers, and unto HIM shall
the "gathering" of the "people" be! Selah.
For it is HE who is absent in the flesh, but present in the Spirit
beholding "our" order which is HIS ORDER for we are the work
of HIS Hands........and He "joys" over us with LOVE!!! And God
is a God of "order" .......He doesn't skip a step that we as
individuals "need." He will make each person "understand" ......
if we have NOT yet understood, we will. For there is NO Man
that "follows HIM" and walks in darkness. He lights our lights
that we may figuratively be a City set on a hill and so that "all"
that are in the "house" may see HIM.
Thank you, Martin for speaking on that word "Figuratively."
It was headbanging sure nuff to get what you were saying
but when I heard it from the Spirit, brother I got it! Of course,
He does not want us to think of puny man, that is exactly
what Paul was speaking of there, that we should not think
of "man" more than we should. So He has transferred Himself
into man for HIS Glory, "and" He has shown man his nothingness
by doing so. All glory to the Lord! And may the Son of God be
God's building a PERFECT LOVE City, a realm where there is NO MORE judging after the flesh. Rather, there is a "discerning" of the BODY.
When we judge after the flesh, we are really pronoucing judgement
on ourselves! So judge nothing "before" the "time" and the "time"
is when the LORD comes! Now the Lord comes, IN YOU, when He
shows like He did Paul re the fornicator, but we must "must" know
that the Judgement of the Son is "always" unto LIFE! It brings forth
fruit unto LIFE! It does not KILL and then leave dead........It kills
and MAKES ALIVE! It raises to damnation and behold the Lamb
who "takes away" the sins of the world.
You should "read" all the rambling I did yesterday and "almost" posted
it "before I GOT it" ..........that which was lacking in my understanding
on this, God supplied. And I am confident my understanding may not
sound exactly like yours, but God knows just "how" to click it for each
one of us!
Jesus said "if I honor myself" my honor is nothing! It takes the Lord
to HONOR ME!! Figuratively think on that one! Think of Paul when he
said, "it is nothing to me if YOU judge me" but "judge nothing til the
Lord comes." The Spirit doth the Works of the Spirit, and the Spirit
grows leaves on the TREE "HE" is! And He giveth LIFE to HIS BODY!
23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow F44 more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. 24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: 25 That there should be no schism F45 in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
Now for a moment, transfer "me" "figuratively" into that which is in need, and see God meet that need thru the leaves of His Body like
right here in this thread, with an abundant word on my understanding
which lacked. See me up there in that scripture? I do. And I see the
"we" who God comes "thru" to give me ABUNDANTLY thru the leaves
of His Body, which is "figuratively" lying as dead in street, and someone
said: But with what "body" do they come? ha They come with HIS OWN
Where does this WORK? It works where the carcase is! Hey Cardinal!
Do you hear that? The "eagles" gather there.
To Seth, to Beloved Servant, To only truth, Nathan, Molly, Cardinal
and Martin....RoseyRose, and Firewalker, went back over this thread
and saw that you are here too.....and myself............bless you from the realm of
the Spirit that I have heard thru you and do acknowledge. That He
transfers Himself thru us figuratively. I can't quit saying "figuratively."
