They that be with us

2 Kings 6:8-16 KJV
Then the king of Syria warred against Israel, and took counsel with his servants, saying, In such and such a place shall be my camp. [9] And the man of God sent unto the king of Israel, saying, Beware that thou pass not such a place; for thither the Syrians are come down. [10] And the king of Israel sent to the place which the man of God told him and warned him of, and saved himself there, not once nor twice. [11] Therefore the heart of the king of Syria was sore troubled for this thing; and he called his servants, and said unto them, Will ye not shew me which of us is for the king of Israel? [12] And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king: but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber. [13] And he said, Go and spy where he is , that I may send and fetch him. And it was told him, saying, Behold, he is in Dothan. [14] Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about. [15] And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? [16] And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.

They that be with us

Baptism of the Spirit

The “baptism” of the Spirit is not a separate thing where first you only had Jesus, and now you get the Spirit. It just means to get dunked, immersed or have your senses tangibly “filled” or flooded with the Spirit Whom you had all along. After all, He is the “Spirit of Jesus.” Col. 2:10 says “By your union with Christ you are filled with the Godhead” … that means you already have the Spirit … you even have the Father in you too! So “infilling” is not a “second work,” rather it’s about a continual enjoyment – a daily dunking – and experience of the Spirit we already have. Not a one-time or two-time event, but Paul says, “Be ye continually filled …” Eph. 5:18. It’s an abiding relationship – He remains in you.
John Crowder

When you feel a nudge

When you’re fully plugged in … aww c’mon you know what I mean … when you’re fully aware of your at-one-ment with God and THEN a desire comes to you, seemingly from left field, THAT’S God! He’s got the fulfillment of that desire right there. If you feel a nudge telling you “write!” hey you’d better do it! It’ll be so much fun! If He says “sing!”, open up and listen to what comes out! It’s all You coz it’s all God! A ‘desire’ welling up from the depths of God in you is a win-win like you’ve never experienced before! Selah

A nudge from God

New Spiritual Era

I see a new spiritual era coming.
The big Televangelists are fading away, mega churches will become less popular.
The Religious rockstars are of the past, healing ministries will also become irrelevant.
So what does the future hold?
The Holy Spirit is moving out of the buildings and into the hearts – so to speak.
God is moving unprecedented in establishing and making known his Kingdom is within us.
Anonymous individuals will soon be springing up all over , sharing the love of Jesus and healing the public.
These ambassadors for Christ will have no agendas other than sharing our Loving God.
Many of you reading this are ready sensing this calling.
You are not alone, this is the Spirit leading you.
Be bold, be brave, have no fear, for you are about to witness amazing acts of God.
Dan Shaffer

Whole new world opening up!

You create your world

Two worlds or two perceptions?

Only two PERSPECTIVES. (Brian Lawrence)
Jesus is our true identity, not a separate being. When we are baptized, immersed into Christ, that does not imply that we invite some exterior being into us, but rather ressurect that which lays dormant in us. When we “receive” the identity of being a son of God, we “step into” all that Christ is. Christ is the state of being that is the new creation. It is the end of living by what our five senses dictate, and entering into a world in which we believe unto. The true self is Christ. The false self is the ego, which is driven by lack, separation, and sensory experience. To live as Christ, is to live in one’s imagination. Not that Christ is imaginary in the traditional sense, but experiential life is born out of our thoughts and beliefs. So when I say perspectives, I mean that we only have two ways of “seeing” things. We can either go on believing that we are some entity that is dropped into some drama or play that has been ongoing since the beginning of recorded history, and we are subject to what surrounds us, or we can live from the knowledge that we live FROM our beliefs, and once we are attuned to the foundational belief that we are sons of God, and that creation is only an outpicturing of what we hold true, we can create our experience out of love, and do the same for others. However, this understanding is “held back” if you will, until Christ is fully formed in the individual. If not then an immature believer could “weaponize” it, and destroy themselves and others. Bottom line is that you create your world. It is the forming of Christ, in us, that is the theme of life.
There is only one true perspective, but as many experiences as there are people. I have my own interpretation of what this life is for, but I by no means teach it as absolute truth. The foundational belief that is the rock that is irrefutable is that I AM a son of God. Many people live all of their lives without this revelation. They strive and strain, never resting. We don’t have to die physically to live in the peace of God. Our egos have to die though. This third part of our being is characterized in the story of Lucifer and the third of heaven falling to the 3D realm. This deception causes us to respond to what we see as if we
are not the creators of all that we see.

I could go on about this, but I have to paint my outdoor shower. Thank you for sharing my post Robin Starbuck. We share a common understanding of the gospel. Blessings.

New Heavens and New Earth – Chuck Crisco

New Heavens and New Earth
Chuck Crisco December 19, 2014

Dr. Chuck Crisco

I can show you the world, shining, shimmering, splendid; Tell me, princess, now when did you last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes take you wonder by wonder; Over, sideways and under on a magic carpet ride

A whole new world; A new fantastic point of view; No one to tell us no or where to go or say we’re only dreaming

A whole new world a dazzling place I never knew; But when I’m way up here, it’s crystal clear that now I’m in a whole new world with you… (Aladdin)

Like Aladdin, I want to invite you to discover a whole new world, from God’s point of view. It’s called the New Heavens and the New Earth and the Bible is crystal clear that it isn’t some place way off into the future at the end of the world. In fact, it’s here right now, right here.

If you have been raised in churches in America, you were probably taught that the New Heaven and New Earth only come when the world is burned crispy critter at the end of the world. We were taught that would be heaven on earth. But there are some real problems with that view.

What does the Bible actually say? David Curtis writes,

“If you read Isaiah 65 and 66, you will notice that, before God creates the new heavens and a new earth, God predicted that Israel would fill the measure of her sin (65:7); he would destroy them (65:8-15; 66:3-6,15-18,24); create a new people with a new name (65:15-16); then create a new heaven and earth with a new Jerusalem (65:17-19). When God created the new heavens and earth, notice that physical death will remain (Isa. 65:20, 66:24), home construction and agriculture will continue (Isa. 65:21-22), we will have descendants (Isa. 65:23, 66:22), the Lord will hear their prayers (Isa. 65:24), there will still be sin (Isa. 65:20, Mat.12:32, Rev.22:15 ), and it is depicted as a time of evangelism when the Jew and Gentile will be brought together under the banner of God (66:19). The new heavens and earth, therefore, cannot be referring to the eternal state; it must be referring to a period in man’s history. This is the period of the Kingdom of God which Christ rules in the hearts of the believers. The Kingdom of God is made without hands (spiritual – Dan. 2:34, 44-45; c.f. Col. 2:10-11).”

For many, the very thought of living in the New Heavens and New Earth now is laughable. This is because we imagine it something different than what it really is. So, let me take you on a magic carpet ride to a whole new world, as we explore what this is all about.

Let’s begin with a definition and then unpack that in the notes ahead. The New Heaven’s and New Earth is biblical language to describe how God forever interacts covenantally with people in the New Covenant kingdom. It’s that simple.

• It is where and how heaven and earth connect so to speak.

• It is a wonderful world in which God made his tabernacle with man.

• It is how he relates to us through the gift of righteousness in the New Covenant.

• It is where he has reconciled us to himself, not counting our sins against us, and issuing the call for us to be reconciled to him.

• It is where he convicts us of the root problem of unbelief and is merciful to the sins that are resulting from that unbelief.

• It is where we are transformed not into the image of the Law, but into the image of Christ as we acknowledge our identity in Him.

• It is where we are blessed, accepted, loved, and forgiven through the finished work of Christ.

• It is where God overcomes evil with good, he blesses those who curse him, he loves his enemies until they can’t take it anymore, and his justice is redemptive instead of punitive.

• It is the realm in which there is no curse and no wrath.

There is a lot of debate over Grace and Law today and much of it is because of a fundamental misunderstanding of what to do with some seemingly difficult passages of scripture. Some seem to indicate radical grace. Others seem to demand some form of Christian law and punishment before God. Both were present in the NT simply because there was a 40 year transition period where the Law was fading away and the New Covenant Kingdom had not fully been established yet.

The author of Hebrews makes this plain: Hebrews 8:13, “In that He says, ‘A new covenant,’ He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.”

Just like there was a 40 year transition period between the giving of the Law and them entering into Promised Land. In the New as well, there was a 40 year transition period. Jesus said multiple times that “all these things” (culminating in the destruction of the temple) would happen in “this” generation. “This” is called a “near demonstrative” in grammar. It is not “that” generation 2000 years later. It is the one that was alive when he was speaking. In fact, Jesus died in 30AD and the complete destruction of the Law and its attendant pieces (priesthood, sacrifices, temple, etc) happened in 70AD. That is exactly 40 years, one generation.

What does all this have to do with the New Heavens and Earth?

“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.” (Matthew 5:17-18).

Did you catch that? The Law and Prophets (the entirety of the Old Covenant) must remain until all of it is fulfilled, and heaven and earth pass away. Jesus did not fulfill the Law and the Prophets at the cross. Yes I know we were taught that, but the Bible doesn’t actually teach it. Instead Jesus told them in Luke 21:

20 “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. 22 For these are the days of vengeance, that ALL things which are written may be FULFILLED.

In fact, when you read Deuteronomy 32, (the Law), you discover many scriptures that the writers of the NC quote as being fulfilled in their life and ministry. By 70AD ALL of them were fulfilled. Otherwise, the Law is still in operation today.

more one liners including “glory”

Are you truly observant? Your assumptions can literally change your circumstances and the very nature of your world.

God … gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.
Romans 4:17 NIV
Tony Denton That’s called “prolepticism.” 😉

With your infinite being, God, all things are possible!
Surrender yourself to your ideal, Jesus, and success is guaranteed.

All u ever were or will b exists now. Nothing is 2b created but only manifested. Creativeness = becoming aware of what already is.

Tim Heart You can only manifest what already is so! It must exist already to be manifested, yes we agree!

Don’t throw baby out with bathwater:
1. Jesus brings God to world
2. Religion messes everything up.
3. Man dumps religion and God.

I just got scolded!! Lol. My mind had gone a wandering and I kinda lost my spiritual mojo :'( . I found myself saying silently “Jeeesus, I just wanna be with youuuu… “Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! You’re right here. I’m right here. Christ in you, the hope of glory, God is in you, living through you, I will never leave you nor forsake you. What more do you want?” I wanna wake up! Poof! It’s gone 😀 😀 😀

“Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”
Isa6:3 ESV
So many dimensions to
God’s purity.

What is Glory
(with a capital G)?
What is holiness too?
It’s “language” is
peculiar to the Trinity.

The GLORY of God is more than light; it has creative potential, energy & momentum beyond electromagnetism & can be tangibly felt

When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
Colossians 3:4 KJV

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
1 John 1:5 NIV

God’s very essence or substance isn’t fire: it’s Spirit.

And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:
Exodus 13:21 KJV

The brightness of the glory is far too intense for mortal eyes to look upon.

To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is CHRIST IN YOU, THE HOPE OF GLORY.
Colossians 1:27 KJV

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
1 Peter 5:10 ESV

Through Him also we have our access (entrance, introduction) by faith into this grace (state of God’s favor) in which we firmly and safely stand. And let us rejoice and exult in our hope of experiencing and enjoying the glory of God.
Romans 5:2 AMPC

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
Habakkuk 2:14 ESV

When the supernatural releases its power it explodes into life! Miracles are ecstatic

Revelation, power and love = streams through which God pours forth His glory by Jesus.

Extra-dimensional thinking is difficult for most people, especially adults. Age seems to lock our minds in a four-dimensional rut.

When you look upon someone or something, exactly who or what is behind your eyes doing the seeing?

is the first
of God.

At the center of manifestation, there is only one I.AM manifesting in legions of forms or concepts of itself in I.AM.THAT. I.AM

Consciousness is ONE.
There is no one that is not all that there is.

Before quarks, gen’l relativity, space-time, unified fields & strings vibrating musically, there was …TA-DAA!!!
… the Bible!!

Spiritual understanding allows us to quit striving and trust divine illuminations instead.

Let us live by Grace
instead of ego-driven achievements & acquisitions.
Listen to God.

In the Bible I find that Paul asked for his cloak. I realize he wasn’t talking to me. Does that make me a bad person? Or good one?

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
I am going to love today.
I am going to love because
It is the only task I have.
I am going to love whoever betrayed me,
Whichever President I disdain,
And myself though I have done stupid things.
I am going to love the world
Though it has disappointed me often,
And the future so it will be filled with light.
I am going to love the past
So it can no longer torment me
And the present so I can see it clearly.
Then, when I am so loved up,
I am going to be able to receive the love
That I know is all around me.
I am going to love today
And then I will know God.

(Marianne Williamson)


IF IT IS TRUE that we are spiritual beings (and we are) and
IF IT IS TRUE that we live in more than one dimension at the same time (and we do) and
IF IT IS TRUE that the other dimension(s) are the realm of God, Himself – infinite Truth, Love and Life and
IF IT IS TRUE that God is instantly accessible to us anytime, anyplace, anywhere and
IF IT IS TRUE that our little lives, fraught with fleshly troubles can be helped beyond measure just by knowing more about the actual nature of God, then my question is this: “Why are we not doing everything in our power and beyond to learn and apply all that we can about such a magnanimous God?

One liners from memes

How can we “know the truth” that makes us free?
By filling our consciousness with the nature of God.

A drop of water is water, right?
A drop of God is

God maintains my life – eternally, immortally.
I am I.
“Be not afraid:
it is I.”

Once we become aware of the “I” that ‘I AM’ we’ll see it’s entirely independent of a body.
I AM spiritual.

Do you spend most of your time resisting evil or basking in God’s love?

Have you ever tried to lie to God? LOL hahaha!!!

What we do in secret – loving people more than ourselves – silently, secretly, opens our own awareness exponentially!

I have good news about that ‘loving your brother’ thang: it gets easier & easier and easier w consistent determination & practise

To declare that you love God but hate your brother is not unconditional love, according to the Bible.

Thinking ABOUT God won’t bring Him into our experience any more than thinking about water will quench our thirst.

Christ will never die. He’s closer to you than your very breathing.

Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free – as it is embodied in your conscious awareness.

To know Him aright is life eternal. You can experience this through the means of your own consciousness.

We are living our eternal life now! Let us cease from ascribing power to anything besides God!

No one is really praying while they’re thinking thoughts. The real and only prayer takes place when all the thinking and speaking is done.

Turn to it, it’s right there inside you. Whatever dares to claim your attention is not powerful, is not necessary, is not even real. I have a 2-word prayer that cuts through all the junk: “Jesus help!” It works instantaneously.

We have it within our power to change the world to a “heaven on earth”. Why? Because it’s already spiritually true. That’s why.

Can we possibly see and believe this – that people are being set free all over the world – thanks to our prayers? It .. is .. true

Let’s just pray for everyone – bar none! No one needs to be excluded … at all … ever … for any reason. God created them too

The kingdom of God is
His wisdom passes understanding.

People without Jesus seem to need outside noise to satisfy them.
But we know that God is at once everywhere!!!

This’ll really blow your mind: a total stranger is struggling & you reverse it in your mind. He looks at you & says “Thank you!”

This wonderful spiritual life is unspeakably fulfilling and joyful
😀 🙂 😀

JESUS always beheld the perfect man where distraught friends and family saw hopelessness. He ALWAYS HEALED EVERYONE !!!
