Thought For The Day (September 1, 2012): The Law Of Life

Romans 8:2 (NASB) reads: < For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. >

The FATHER has predestined (foreordained) actual freedom from the Law of Sin and Death to those who are willing to live by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS.

Romans 8:3-4 (NKJV) reads: < For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. >

Romans 8:1 (NKJV) declares that: < There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. >

All things in Scripture flow into progressive fulfillment by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS. Eternal life, and the capacities to be developed in expressing this eternal life, are a gift that the FATHER has predestined – for progressive revelation and development in us – in His SON.

John 3:16 (NKJV) reads: < For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. >

Eternal life is an outcome the FATHER has predestined for everyone who believes in the SON; believing, in such a manner as to live in what the FATHER has predestined in CHRIST JESUS, by the HOLY SPIRIT.

In John 16:14 (NASB) YESHUA declares: < He (the HOLY SPIRIT) will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He (the HOLY SPIRIT) will take of Mine and declare it to you. >

YESHUA declares categorically: “All things that the FATHER has are Mine”!

From this statement we can understand that everything the FATHER has predestined for fulfillment is opened and developed in us, by the HOLY SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS.

This is the basis of eternal life.

Living by the HOLY SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS is the Law of Life.

In this predestined reality of life eternal – in CHRIST JESUS, by the HOLY SPIRIT – is the reality and the actuality of the prophetic, predestined by the FATHER for our well-being (2 Cor 1:20).

This is why Hebrews 1:3 (NASB) declares that: < He (YESHUA) … upholds all things by the word of His power … >. Amen!

This is why 2 Peter 1:19 (NASB) declares: < So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. >

This Morning Star arising in our hearts is the Mystery of CHRIST predestined for revealed manifestation in the Body of MESSIAH, called to be a Bride for the LAMB.

Colossians 1:26-28 (NASB) reads: < the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints, to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. >

The Mystery of CHRIST peculiar to each one of us manifests and grows in what Scripture calls the Epistle of CHRIST.

2 Corinthians 3:3 (NKJV) reads: < Clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart. >

Each element of the Testimony of YESHUA (JESUS) is manifested and developed in the peculiar Epistle of CHRIST that we each are; we are a Morning Star in the making; with each Morning Star being a growing measure of the Bright Morning Star (Rev 22:16) expressing the reality and actuality of eternal life freely bestowed in us in the BELOVED, our Husband (Eph 1:6, NASB).

And, we are of our Husband’s flesh and of His bones (see Eph 5:30, KJV/NKJV). This is the construct of the Bride; she is of His flesh and of His bones.

His flesh is the substance of His fullness. His bones represent the structure of His Body; manifested, through His faith authored and perfected into the fabric of our faith and our being – individually and collectively!

As Morning Stars we are living expressions of the Glory of the FATHER’s Grace – freely bestowed on us in the BELOVED (Eph 1:6, NASB). Amen!

All that YHWH has predestined is unveiled in us – grace upon grace – in the Righteousness of YHWH working within us (through our faith in YESHUA) the prophetic reality of eternal life, freely bestowed on us through our faith in YESHUA (Rom 10:9-10; John 3:16).

This is awesome: The Bride is unveiled not by the works of the Law but by the washing of the Water of the Rhema Word (Eph 5:25-27), administered by the HOLY SPIRIT in a washing of renewal and regeneration (Titus 3:5-6), in a reality of grace upon grace (Eph 2:7-10; John 1:16-17) in fulfillment of the Law of the SPIRIT of Life in CHRIST JESUS.

At the highest level, the Law of Life is brought into progressive fulfillment in a Bride for the LAMB. This is why Isaiah 60:1-3 talks about nations walking in the light of our rising.

We walk into this by faith. Everything that we live is predestined in the FATHER’s will to be a living testimony and witness to our faith in YESHUA, by the HOLY SPIRIT. Amen!

GBU as you walk by faith into actualizing the Righteousness of YHWH that will create you to be a Bride for the LAMB.

Arise and shine brethren! This is your destiny by the predestined will of GOD.

By faith GOD will do the miracle He has predestined: to raise a Bride for the LAMB, without spot, wrinkle or blemish from a fallen humanity. Amen!
