In our Father's perfect will we have taken our plane of dominion with the ascended Christ. He is "The way, the truth and the life" expressing himself to us, through us and as us to the world. Christ is the High Priest and Chief corner stone living in His temple, whose temple we are. And we live in union with Him who is Life. He is not ashamed to call us brethren, and express the counsel of His will in His brethren as His brethren. "And saviors shall come up on Mount Zion to judge the Mount Esau, and the kingdom shall be the Lord's." These saviors are in the Savior, and the Savior is in the saviors. The many are in Him Who is One, to the glory of the Father, "Without beginning of days nor end of life."
"For I hear laughter and great rejoicing, in Zion's mountains glad tiding telling. The Lord of glory in sons appearing. Rejoice creation your King of love is here."
We cannot grasp the fullness of Christ's allness by intellectual powers. But as Paul heard the Lord: "My grace is sufficient for you." We have realized a secret that some have not come to know: a vital union with Christ. Jesus spoke, "He that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." Christ our Center swallows up all darkness and death in us. Christ the life-giving Spirit, lives in you saviors in Mount Zion, giving life and light to the world. We are more than conquerors through Christ in our sanctified inner man. Our royal Savior Redeemer, Christ has His saviors joined to Him in inner covenant union. After Jesus death, burial, resurrection and ascension to the Father, He came back filling His with Himself. There to fulfill His saving work through us whom He has joined to Himself. Our High Priest within fulfills all He was destined to be of the Father.
Every one of us has the opportunity to commune with Father where He embraces us in spiritual intimacy with Himself. He birthed us in His likeness and person. The saviors standing on Mount Zion are next of ken to the Godhead! The Father spoke this once into my spirit: "No one will see Jesus until they see Him in the Spirit."
"Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God." Phil. 2:5, 6. We cannot be a true savior with the Lamb on Mount Zion outside of a mystical consciousness of "Christ in you." In such a realization and personal embrace of Christ, the Father reveals His immensity, and unlimited Being.
Beloved, for you saviors, everything is turned into Christ, as well as being conscious of Christ being in you. We are conscious of being "In-Christed ones. I am not encouraging carelessness, but rather, let us affirm everything we do is Christ doing it. Paul Spirit breathed this word: "We are co-laborers with God." Christ within us, the Savior of saviors are co-laborers with God. Fathers’ intent and purpose is for His first begotten Son to live in mankind by an extended incarnation of God union, thus, making each a son of the Father.
Paul spoke of a dimension he called: "Christ Spirit." He lived and spoke from that dimension. All that is inside that high Spirit dimension was reality to him. And all outside that dimension was not reality to him. The excellency of our union with Father brought about a whole new change in our identity, sin is foreign or alien to you saviors on Zion as it was in Jesus our Savior with whom we are one. And that all by grace, no merits of our own! Yet all that is His is ours.
Being born of our Father's Divine nature, His royal blood flows in our veins. This bespeaks that we are nearer Him than our natural parents. That does not belittle our mother and father, He chose them to bring us into this world. Jesus said, "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God." He purified our heart and we see Him within. In purity of heart you commune with Father and He with you. Oh, the rejoicing of our spirit in this happy atmosphere of love and reunion of hearts. Our communion with our Beloved is at times silent, thought to thought. Thought is spirit. This is how the saviors on Mount Zion judge the mount of Esau. "Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of mush. A new breed of saviors is ascending Mount Zion to judge the mountains of Esau" (all flesh, senses). Obadiah Verse 21.
Speaking of thought being spirit, you like Louise and I when in conversation and a thought suddenly came to mind, and she or I began a dialogue on the same thought. A friend, Tom Holmquist from Oregon visited us about six weeks ago while on a business trip, And a few times, thoughts came into my spirit, and Tom began to speak on the same vibration. It is not ESP or mind reading. It is more related to, "The gift of the word of knowledge." Danny Abril and Richard Brown, co-ministers with me in our fellowship experience this too. These brethren are awesome.
Christ is inside and He and I can talk to each other inside. He uses these lips, for they are His. I use them to talk and ask questions. They are my lips also. These same lips are for Him to talk to me, and me to talk to Him. These are times when we talk in silence in our breasts to one another. Oh, the joy we share together within.
The ascended Christ is enthroned in our hearts. Vital union with the King is essential in our lives to know Him and His moment by moment reality! The consciousness of our spirit, joined in union with Christ's floods our hearts, unleashing His royal presence, power and life within us. We went from outer court scripture knowledge, and it wasn't unfruitful. Then stepped into a much richer realm of inner knowing. Our Father's goal is incarnation-al living through union.
1 Tim. 3: 16 "Great is the mystery of godliness, God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached to the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." Christ claims the use of your body, your whole being, your whole personality. So you give yourself to Him through the eternal Spirit, He may give Himself to you through the Holy Spirit, that all your activity as a human being on earth may be His activity in and through you, that every step you take, every word you speak, everything you do, everything you are may be an expression of the Son of God, and you as you. The life that you possess is birthed from above is the Incorruptible Seed, the word of God, without beginning of days or ending of life Uncreated Life. Is the eternal God's Life created?
Remember, we are here to make a deposit of "Christ who is our life" in the life of others. In the 1980s and early 1990s we had meetings in our home. People came from all over, and some from interesting backgrounds. Some of Witness Lee's followers came from the S.F. Bay area to worship with us. Witness Lee from China, who was taught by Watchman Nee, whose books I read as a young believer, told his followers in Oakland, "We are Christ-growers and Christ-Producers." Those humble and beautiful people made an impression on me.
Christ who perfects our inner parts has fully resolved our false identity and becomes our true identity in union with our spirits, has brought us into heavenly rest in whom we are in Him. We become fuel for "our God is a consuming fire." "He makes his messengers a flame of fire."
We carry the excellency of our Father within, which cannot be compared with all or any created things. The pure excellency of His Life is uncreated! Our union with Christ goes beyond a formal, idealistic, functional, or harmony-rapport. We have a genetic union, relational God syndrome personality, through our Spirit birth from above. And all are genuine members of the Divine family. Eph. 3: 15. And are actual sons of God. 1 John 3:2. Thus, all believers in Jesus are "partakers of the divine nature." 2 Pet. 1:4. Being begotten of the Father's "genes" called "imperishable" Seed, living and abiding word of God." 1 Pet. 1:23. We now bear His heredity, and are Jesus Christ's many brothers He brings to glory.
All who are in Christ are the exact likeness of Father's "Firstborn Son." Jesus Christ recognizes us being His bona fide Spirit brothers. We are all of the Father's family Tree through Christ. John 1: 1-3. We were birthed as heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, the very DNA of our Father of unconditional love is in us, and is non-perishable! You will never become the original God that many claim to be. Like Eve, they have swallowed the original lie. Genesis Two.
Beloved, the Prince of Life is sovereign, and is all, and in all, and throughout our being all that Christ was, He now becomes in us. In Him we now find completeness. He said, "I am the Bread of life come down from heaven that a man may eat thereof and not die." He spoke of the Bread which He is. We drink of His Life, His strength, His healing, His Grace and perfect love that casts out all fear. The majesty of the Lord's grace is not only what He would do for us, but what He would become in us. How can anyone be spiritual without the Spirit? That is why church rituals amount to nothing at all in meetings. In the maturing of your spiritual life is in reality, the increasing manifestation of Christ's Life.
The ascended Christ is our unlimited Source of Supply, and in Him we find all we need. In Him is the unlimited fountain of living water flowing from God and the Lamb. The Lord has emblazoned His law in our hearts. God manifest in the flesh has been enthroned in the children of obedience. The trumpet is sounding, and the prison walls of this world are shaking and ready to fall as Jericho before Joshua, ages ago. When Jesus went to the cross, it was the Father's acknowledgment of your infinite worth to Him. In Christ there are no limitations, He is Lord of all circumstances that face you. They may appear to be as mountains, but before Him they are no greater than a mustard seed. Our spirit is joined to the Lord the Spirit, who is love, our spirit is perfect which is love. We are "heirs of God" who is love, and His love is like a magnet, drawing all mankind to Him as you are Niagara flowing of boundless love. "THE LOVE OF GOD IS SPREAD ABROAD IN OUR HEARTS BY THE HOLY SPIRIT."
Father is the One and Only absolute and ultimate Life. He is the self existent One. He birthed us out of Himself to be unique forms and expressions of His ultimate highness. The Father and Son are worthy of all praise, honor and glory. He contains all in Himself, yet dwells in all. What a wonder He is, and we are in union with Him. What a mystical wonder He is.
The incarnation of Christ is an ongoing process, in-christing men and women until all are caught up in His reality. Jesus prayed, "Father...I in them and you in me." Meaning: The in-christed continuation of all believers. John 17. We have an inner conscious union with Christ the King, in us, and with us in the King. And resident King in you and me is expressed by you and me. 1 Tim. 1: 17. We have a spontaneous freedom of living by "faith in the Son of God," and manifesting His life, and yet, the truth is, He is living our life as His life. It is now and ever His Life, but via our union with Christ, who is our life." Col. 3: 3, 4. So Christ our life is "all in all." Col. 3:11. We are aware of Father in His manifestation of infinite varieties through many sons.
By through and out the Great "I AM that I AM" all has come. "In Him we live and move and have our being." As said, He contains all in Himself, yet He dwells in all." It is not up to us to make Father's plan of success work. Yet, Christ clothes Himself in human forms today, and penetrates the affairs of mankind. The Spirit Christ is a permanent state of being, and resides in human form. He is Father's many membered Son. "For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body are, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ." So also is Christ what? Christ is a body of many members. 1 Cor. 12:12. The "New Man," is the real you. The New Man is Spirit-that is you. We are the "earthen vessels" or temples in whom our transcendent Father manifests into visibility. Just as Jesus realized the kingdom of heaven is within and manifested it openly, so may all who realize it within. It is realization of Father and Son union that brings results. But such divine union, manifestation's and results cannot be had by organizations, book and their teachers. We find it within! It must be expressed, acknowledged and confessed to work, directly out of the Savior King with His co-saviors standing on Zion. Obadiah 21.
Best In Christ's Love!
