This is a beautiful post by RLV that I pulled from her thread, because of some things she brought out pertaining to the soul.
The "woman" ...soul...was in a NOT yet "saved" state in the Vasthi
state..........even tho she was "called"
she was refused.
The "soul" is not saved til 1'st Peter 1:9 comes
Which says: "Receiving the END of your faith, even
the salvation of your "soul."
When that comes to pass, the "woman" or "soul" is completely made
ONE with the Spirit from which the woman who brought forth the manchild
must be reunited.
The soul must be reunited with the Spirit.
He that is joined "to" the Lord is ONE Spirit.
The Spirit and His washed clean Bride....and He is the One
that "washed her" .........Eph 5
The woman must be reunited with her Son that she
brought forth and was caught up to the heavens. Rev. 12
She is nourished in the wilderness. Til it happens.
Without "faith" it is impossible to "please" God.
Esther pleased him, who was the type.
She "readied" herself on the 3rd day!
She seems to be a type of the "woman" in Revelation
that "to her was "granted" that she should be arrayed in fine linen."
She put on her beautiful garments and made herself ready.
She went in with blind "faith" and ended up
being told she and Mordecai could rewrite the judgement.
She made herself "ready" ...she was a "beautiful" woman
washing herself and she belonged to ONE.....she
was not the property of the Davids. You will remember
that DAVID tried to seize Bathsheba but had to pass thru
a real dark night before God gave her to him. So like Bathsheba, Estherdid not belong to the Davids, But she
was ONE with the ONE with whom she had made
herself ready. Put on thy "beautiful garments" AWAKE
O Zion, the holy city, for "henceforth" there shall no more
come into thee, the uncircumcised and the unclean. Isa. 52
The curse was broken. So the uncircumcised and unclean
could NOT but attempt! God made them fall for her sake.
Esther on the 3rd day put on her royal apparel and
stood in the INNER court of the Kings House!
Pharo claimed his river as "his own" but God said it wasn't.
But it would seem that God "gave" the "RIVER" to Esther.
The River became her own by flowing to her and Mordecai
to rewrite.......to reverse.......the curse.
Jesus rewrote it.
His Father had commanded Him.
He knew that it was a commandment UNTO LIFE.
Remember Jesus saying "I have received a commandment
from the Father and I "KNOW" that it's LIFE everlasting!
He Removed the "death" on the Cross.
The curse turned into a blessing.
In the faith in Him state, Esther found FAVOR with the MAN
tho at that stage, she knew not whether she would
touch the "scepther" of Blessing in him, or
whatever else might be in the man to whom she
was sent to see.
Sorta like us, we have been taught we might touch that
The "father of our faith" is Abraham.
He is the type of "going to a land that thou knowest NOT."
But in the progression of following HIM, we find
that He has already nailed death to the cross.
We are the Apple of His Eye....."because'
we are the WORK of HIS Hands.
Remember the woman that said to her husband, "If He
were not pleased with us, why would He show us all this?
Do not be deceived as was Eve. Disobedience breeds deceit.
Deceit does not bring the proceeding River from the Throne.
The Mother of all living who brings forth thru "travail." is Eve.
Jerusalem from ABOVE is FREE!
Without travail. FREE.
Depicting the two covenants.
It would seem to me that this "woman" who is FREE has been
reunited with the Son.
The end of our Salvation. 1st Peter 1:9
which is called the "salvation of the soul."
The time comes in our lives,
The "salvation" of our SOULS breaks the covenant with "death."
No more death. That does not mean that "death" will
not still "try" to come against us, but "we" are passed
from "death" unto LIFE and it's "effects" are LOST....
The Word says:
Isaiah 54:15 -
Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall ........
.fall for thy sake.
Tho Baalim climbs to the highest religious realm,
his eyes get opened and
he learns that GOD HAS BLESSED YOU!!
God "knows" that the first man was born blind.
In a sense.
And that HE must come forth with the Judgement UNTO LIFE
to take away that vanity thru the HOPE that HE also put in us
from the beginning.
He teaches each one of His Jewels Himself.
We know nothing about the knowlege of God until the Spirit
And what we "do NOT know" it is because we are not
ready for it. Jesus said, "I have many things to tell you
but you can't bear them now."
Walk in the "light" He has given and that causes more
LIGHT to be given.
Refuse to walk in it, and it causes a "delay"
of what HE knows about you and is eager for you to
know about yourself.
It does not change what is written and settled in the
Eternal Heaven about us, but it "delays" our knowing about it.
Truth KEEPS! Preserves. God knows how to "reserve or preserve" it
in the heavens.
It is God's plan for our understanding to "progress."
He does not feed meat to babies.
And we are told to be as little children.
We know by that it is about LOVE, not
about "knowledge." God is not impressed
with the legs of a man.
Neither is He a Respector of persons.
Seek and "ye" shall find; Rejoice with Jerusalem
and ye too will "milk out."
His eyes are on the Work of His Own Spirit.
That He Alone has done. Without the tool of man.
We learn all that as He progresses us in leaning not to
our own understanding, but here a little, there a little,
line on line, etc.
God's work in us shall see to it that that our earth
shall be covered with the KNOWLEDGE of God
as the "waters cover the sea."
Been covered with the Knowledge of the Wrong Tree
long enough. Ha So instead of being "covered" with the
Ezek. 28 so called "covering" we shall be "covered" with
a Robe of Righteousness, which HE clothes us with.
Our flesh starts out with a WAR against the Spirit.
Guess who wins?
And guess who gets full salvation thru the process?
Love and God quicken this word ....
Death to death!
And everywhere that the River ran, there was a healing!
THE MINISTRY BEHIND THE VEIL
The ministry of Spirit to Spirit is "behind the second veil" ........
unseen by man but special garments are given
for that ministry. They are "taken off" for the ministry "to the people."
