of Resurrection Spirit Life
AFTER DEATH WHILE ON EARTH
This is written from the heart of God under mandate to
remove death and bestow life to the people of God on earth now and in the
season just ahead of us.
LIFE IS LOVE FULFILLED IN ONENESS. – Oneness with that
which is life to an individual.
ETERNAL LIFE IS LOVE FULFILLED IN ONENESS WITH GOD. – Now
DEATH IS SEPARATION. – Separation from life or from that
which is life to an individual.
ETERNAL DEATH IS EVERLASTING SEPARATION FROM GOD. – Now
Many if not all of you reading this are now or have in
the past or will possibly very soon endure a death-like experience of
separation in life. The ultimate test in life that is coming to people now on
earth is about who or what we really love. From where do we draw life other
than from God? Who or what on earth do we love as much as or more than we love
God? Is God truly our first love above all?
The true answer to this question may not be what we think
it is or what we would like for it to be. The purpose of the tests is not so
God can know our hearts. He already knows. It is for us to truly know our own
hearts and what gods or idols exist in us that hinder our complete oneness with
God and subsequently our fully walking in the full presence, power, and love of
Every day the TV news is filled with people who have been
separated from their life, that is to say they are separated from people,
places, or things they really love. Some of them will never recover and will
experience mortifying pain for the rest of their shortened lives on earth.
Others will feel the pain of loss or separation for a season and will soon
recover and experience an abundant resurrected Spirit life.
What is the difference in the ones who are never able to
overcome the tragedy of loss and those who can continue in a life of peace and
The short answer is that those who truly love God more
than anything else in life will not be totally devastated by the loss of
anything or anyone else in life.
However, those who love anyone or anything as much as or
more than they love God will experience death in their lives when they are
separated from that which they love.
Not time nor anything else, apart from falling in love
with God with our WHOLE HEARTS, will ever completely heal our wounds. Without
coming to God with our whole hearts the pain of our wounds will fester into
bitterness and poison our lives with a hell-like progressively decaying life of
pain and suffering that will not be healed until we come to God with our WHOLE
God is love, and He completely loves us whether we fully
love Him or not. However, at the same time His love is an irresistible drawing
to eternal life now and forever. The way that we respond to that irresistible
drawing love of God makes all the difference in our lives now on earth as well
as beyond this life.
The love of God, in this season, is drawing people away
from their other gods unto Himself, the one true God in whom is life and life
more abundantly. There is no death, no separation in God. Those who come to Him
with their whole hearts He will not leave or forsake. (Heb 13:5). The fullness
and completeness of life is in God and His love.
However, in our natural lives on earth as those born
under the sin nature of the first Adam, we are naturally drawn to seek the
fulfillment of life in natural people, places, or things. The natural desires
and affections of natural mankind is for the things of this world. Subsequently
our default natural mindset is to be joined to those people, places, or things from
which we draw natural life and a false sense of wellbeing.
The natural person apart from Christ Jesus knows nothing
of the love of God and His resurrection life of Christ abiding in His people by
the Holy Spirit. The profound truths of the reality of Spirit life are
foolishness to the natural mind. (1 Cor 2:14). Yet there is an insatiable need
for something more than himself or herself within the natural person. Without
Christ, natural man in his attempt to fill that inner need seeks and
establishes many other gods or idols from which he or she draws life.
When a person truly comes to God in Christ Jesus by the
Holy Spirit, all of the other gods or idols from the natural life must be
removed from their high place in our hearts and lives. Most of us have
continued to hold on to our idols to some degree and therefore remain unable to
live in the fullness of the life of God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
It may appear to us that people and things outside of us
and around us that will not connect to us and flow life to us are the source of
our lack of abundant life and lack of a sense of true wellbeing. The truth is
that we lack the awesome fullness of walking in the Spirit as mature sons
because of our lingering affection for the things of this life. We continue to
hope that things will change and the people will receive us and give us life
through acceptance and respect for us.
We may be yet clinging to the hope of the acceptance and
honor of men. Yet because we are connected to God, we cannot be accepted and
honored by those who are not of the Spirit of God but are of the spirit of the
fallen world. Perhaps the most miserable life is to know God and see from a
distance the abundant Spirit life of righteousness, peace, and joy in the pure
holy love and supernatural power of God and yet be clinging to affection for
other gods or idols of this life that prevent us from receiving the fullness of
the glory of God.
GOD IN HIS PERFECT LOVE IS NOW HELPING US TO BE CLEANSED
FROM OUR IDOLS THAT WE MAY TRULY BECOME ONE WITH HIM WITHOUT ANY HINDRANCES TO
THE FULLNESS OF THE LIFE OF GOD IN US.
The cleansing judgments of God coming now upon us and our
world are for the purpose of first cleansing the house of God by allowing the
destruction of all that our idols and other gods have built and then cleansing
the entire world. (1 Peter 4:17).
This is the pure holy love of God in action. This is the
kingdom of God and His love coming forth in our lives and then into the world.
This is a death that we feel that seems unbearable as our other sources of
life, our other gods, are removed.
THERE CAN BE NO RESURRECTION LIFE UNTIL AFTER THERE HAS
BEEN A DEATH.
PRAISE GOD! THE PURE HOLY RESURRECTION SPIRIT LIFE IS
BEING POURED INTO OUR HEARTS AND LIVES BEYOND THE DEATH OF LOSING ALL OF OUR
IDOLS AND FALSE GODS.
The pain we feel at the loss of the people, places, and
things that we loved quickly turns to extreme passionate love for God. He
becomes everything to us, the total source and focus of our lives; there is no
life in us apart from God. We are one with God, and all He is and all that He
has becomes ours as truly we become a new creation and joint heirs with Christ.
It is no longer us who lives for we are dead, crucified with Christ, and our
life that we now live is the Son of God, Christ Jesus, living in us where we
once lived. (Gal 2:20).
Yet we are abundantly alive in the resurrection Spirit
life of Christ in us bringing forth His glory. Truly we have passed from death
unto life, eternal life in Christ and Christ in us, one with God in Christ by
the Holy Spirit. (Col 1:27).
This is entering through the narrow gate sometimes spoken
of as the eye of the needle through which we carry nothing with us. (Mat 19:24)
(Mat 7:13-14). Entering through this narrow gate of loss we arrive into a wide
place of abundance of life as one with God. All things are possible, and
nothing can take away the glory of God and the perfect peace and everlasting
joy of the Lord that is within and among us. We are now one with God and one
with all of His people that are also one with Him. (John 17:20-23). All things
are become one under one King, Lord, Savior, and Almighty God now in this life
and in eternity. (Eph 1:22). This is the real kingdom of God on earth as it is
It matters not to our wellbeing how others see us or
whether they accept or reject us. We are eternally secure in oneness with the
living God and have no need to draw life from any other source.
This life is simply not about us. It certainly is not
about fixing or saving us so we can enjoy our false life with our false gods
and man-centered religious or secular activities. This life is about God in
Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit reigning supreme and in full glory in this
world now and forever. It is about Christ and His kingdom on earth as it is in
heaven. Without Christ the King of glory we are less than nothing. With Christ
the King of glory in us and us in Him, the resurrection Spirit life of Christ
Jesus, Yeshua reigns on earth. (Psalm 24).
In Philippians 3: 7-11, Paul spoke of
attaining this resurrection life now in this life. He was not speaking of
resurrection after physical death. He was already assured of that by the cross.
He gave up all things in striving for attaining the resurrection life of Christ
Jesus living in him in this life on earth. He counted the things of this life
as rubbish in comparison to the resurrection life of Christ in him by the
In Galatians 2:20, Paul wrote: I have been crucified with Christ; it is
no longer I who live, but Christ
lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith
in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Christ in you is the hope of glory. (Col 1:27).
