“I came that you might have life and have to the full.”
“I am the light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Read these words while praying and meditating over and over until they begin to speak truth to you.
What marvelous words. These very words themselves contain the light of life. They are the spark of life that we may begin to see and to life for prior to, we abide in darkness and unaware. Yes, unaware that the life we live, the life we are born into, is not actually life at all. It is merely a vapor that appears but for a moment in time, that parallels or walks next to yet not participating in that which is true life.
“..and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth.”
May the Lord give us understanding to this truth, that truth is the reality of life in the kingdom !
This mystery is indeed great; this mystery is priceless. It is very near but it is locked behind a veil of secrecy. There in fact is a key but this key requires a steep price. I dare say, it will cost you everything ! This payment is not a one time event. It is to be paid daily, hourly and continually in installments. These installments are your very life and all it contains.
There are two forms and planes of life ! One if of the soul which also contains the corrupted flesh and is separated from the life of God. This life is in and of the world; the same world that is ruled and governed by Satan. This life is limited, confined and bound up and allies itself to the construct of Satan that we call the “world”. It is somewhat a mirage, somewhat a parallel, somewhat a construct of that which is real and true. It has the appearance of life, but that is all. It ends in death just as it also abides and walks in death.
Please consider the following truth in this parable ;
“Is one dead because he is alive, or
Is one alive because he is dead?”
Hint - consider what Jesus said, “ because you say, “we see”, your sins remain”.
We were not created to die, yet we do abide in death because of our trespasses and sins ! We are justified however, through faith and regenerated unto life, but do we walk in newness of life in the kingdom or do we continue to walk in the old man of death in the world ?
And here is where the real journey begins, does it not ? If we are instructed to enter the rest of God; if we are told to walk in spirit, does this not mean we are on a journey ? We must be sure then exactly where this journey takes place; where is the final destination and the pathway to reach the same. I submit to you the truth that this journey is the very transition of the source of your life and living from that of the soul life in the world to that of the Spirit of life to be lived out in your spirit within the kingdom of God. Remember what our Lord said, “the kingdom of God is within you”.
The Lord be with your spirit in leading you to the truth and reality of the true life to be lived, experienced and enjoyed within your own spirit. It is the marriage of His Spirit with your spirit for the abundant life on the higher plane of life !
