COMMUNION IN SILENCE WITH THE INNER CHRIST
The source of all life is our residing place. The One living within us gave us divine birth. 1 Pet. 1:23, 2 Pet. 1:4. Therefore in our divine midst we can find all His abundant resources. You will never meet another as omnipotent, or omniscient as he, so you can take all your questions, and needs to Him. We are Christ's "many brethren," His many splendored body.
The Father's passionate desire is for each of His sons to come into loving intimacy with Him. This occurs in response to imbibing the divine nectar of His substance in personal silent communion.
"Be still and know that I am God." The hustle and bustle of doing things for God may bee good, but never brings intimacy. Man-kind has
two minds, an outer mind, and an inner mind. The outer mind only knows the things of the natural, outer world. The inner mind in the intimacy of union with Father in the center, learns His divine secrets. The paramount secret is: not doing, but being-being in love with the Father.
The inner mind learns to be lovingly attentive, and inner listening to Father's heart. in this holy sanctuary of silence, His thoughts are supreme. he transmits thought as spirit and life word. In the union of silence, the Lord the Spirit swallows up our will, thus we become His will!
Our Father clothes us in the light of the Son of righteousness. Formerly we were naked, and sons of the night. Now you are "light in the Lord.'
You will not sense any sin in your life when you are conscious of union with the Lord. "There is therefore now no sin consciousness to them who are in union with Christ Jesus." This translation was quickened to me after studying Romans 1:1, 2 with three brothers a
couple of weeks ago. It came suddenly to me as I drove home from Burger King where we gathered.
"We know that no one who is born of God sins; but he who is born of God keeps him and the evil one does not touch him." 1 John 5:18 Ryrie version.
All who are born of God has the divine nature - and are joined to the Lord in one spirit.. At the inner plane of spirit awareness, Christ being our life, the principle of sin does not dwell in us. Therefore the evil one cannot touch us. There is no devil in the realm where I dwell. It is the Father's, lock, stock and barrel, and the evil one can't even step onto the outer perimeter's. The holy One of Israel is supreme, and all of earths inhabitants shall bow the knee, confessing Him Lord of ALL.
We have the mind of Christ, which is the mind of the Father, there fore our union with Him sets us free from the law of sin and death. Rom. 8: 1, 2.
When you know your union as a partaker of Christ's divine nature ( 2 Pet. 1:4), you then are conscious of being his perfect expression. As we behold our immanent Christ in us, we reflect His glory and manifest Him to all.
With great joy I proclaim to you that Father's delight, approval and acceptance is upon you. Eph. 1:6. He birthed us by divine decree to fulfill His desire for us, that is intimate love union with each one personally. In that intimate personal love union His unconditional love for us is fulfilled in Him lavishing his love upon us.
I have come to know by experience that when we love someone unconditionally, we don' judge them. Yes, we see their peculiarities and perhaps vices, but "Love covers a multitude of sins." How much does our precious Father look on us in His unconditional love and mercy that endures forever? We are our Father's personal "offspring."
When I first came to Christ, for several years I lived in a religious environment where God was taught as being a stern judge, who kept score of all our misdeeds - disregarding His grace. It was a joyful liberating experience when I realized my heavenly Father doesn't judge us on performance, but rather on the intents of our heart.
Our Father intends for us to affirm one another unto edification, and gentle exhortation. Never criticism and judgment in the family of God.
Beloved, now the spirit of life in Christ Jesus is our life, and the "god of this world" has no part in us.
Being wondrous expressions of the life and nature of Christ Jesus, we are not yoked with conflicting dual natures of our former self. We are free from the law of sin and death. Rom. 8: 2, plus the "world the flesh and the devil.'
Being aware of our union with the Spirit Christ which is our inheritance, the world, the flesh, the law, sin, the devil and death are distortions that we overcome. These are being used by Father as His
perfecting processes. You are already perfect in the stage of growth where you are at now. The Father would have us avoid centering our existence on the level of our physical senses in our present temporary
age. We operate on a higher spirit plane, where "our life is hid with Christ in God." On this plane of Spirit we realize where all is one in God. "For of him (God), and through him, and to him, ARE ALL THINGS. To whom be glory forever." Rom. 11: 36.
"To us there is but one God the Father, of whom are ALL THINGS, and we in him, and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are ALL THINGS,
and we by him. Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge."
1 Cor. 8: 6, 7.
In the Father's sovereignty all problems man has to bear is the intentions of God's perfect processing plan. But His is there in the problems, and His presence gives rest in the midst of them all as we see him there.
"Be silent, O all flesh before the Lord." Zech. 2: 13.
In waiting on our Father in communion, we need to cease all talking and physical movement, taking time to be silent and listen in the inner heart for Father's voice. The inner prayer of silence allows for listening.
Beloved, there is a vital life-giving spiritual communion with the divine
Bridegroom! Not many believers live lives of sons and daughters who have been intoxicated by the mystic nectar of a new age. (Not the New
Age of man made crapola). Not everyone is willing to live as though he has discovered, (like we), a treasure whose riches will never diminish.
We know the "God is love," and that he is insanely generous in His
affection for us.
Through silence and waiting before our Father He draws us into spiritual intimacy with Himself, even further than when we were born of His Spirit. There we drop all cognitive thinking and enter the plane of Spirit impressions. The Father's heart lovingly pants after our heart to communicate with us.
Beloved, the Lamb's song of intimacy floods our hearts. fullness of salvation is ready to be manifest in His many membered body. Men cannot initiate this fullness, nor can he finish it. "It is not by might nor by power, but by my spirit, says the Lord." Jesus Christ is the Author and the Finisher of our faith."
Beloved, you are already blameless, holy, complete in Christ, you are unreprovable in His sight. So thee is nothing more you have to become. "Our fellowship is with the Father and his Son."
Love is the essence of right relationships. Love is a correcting staff for unbalanced relationships. "God is love." He is the correction Staff to Whom we gather for true relationship. The only true relationships are in love. As long as anybody can't love, he is defeated within. When our Father has placed His approval on anyone, and that one rejects his or her self, there will be an inner penalty of unrest and sorrows, and distrust and loathing of self.
Unless one is love in his/her center, he cannot love himself, and neither can he love his neighbor. The Father totally loves and accepts us in our vices, and as we become conscious of it, we begin to love, and accept and trust ourselves to love as Christ loves us. Continued.
Love and hugs,
