The actualization of the fullness of JESUS CHRIST – in substance and witness – is what the revelation of JESUS CHRIST manifests in our heart [see Eph 1:17-19; 2 Cor 3:3, NKJV].
The revelation of JESUS CHRIST is the Mystery of CHRIST [see Col 1:26-28] to be manifested and developed in us – to accomplish the FATHER’s purpose.
The fullness of JESUS CHRIST – in substance and witness – specific to each one of us, creates and defines us as peculiar/unique Epistles of CHRIST [see 2 Cor 3:3, NKJV; 4:6-7, NKJV; Eph 2:10; 2 Cor 5:17]
This is the heart of the prophetic Word that unveils and grows from being a lamp – opened in a new birth – into becoming a morning star in our hearts.
2 Peter 1:19 (NASB) reads: < 19 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. >
Beginning with the new birth all things from YHWH open to us by revelation.
- In Deuteronomy 29:29 [NASB], YHWH declares: < 29 “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law. >
- In Mark 4:22 [NASB], YESHUA MASHIAH declares: < 22 “For nothing is hidden, except to be revealed; nor has anything been secret, but that it would come to light. 23 “If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.” 24 And He was saying to them, “Take care what you listen to. By your standard of measure it will be measured to you; and more will be given you besides. >
- In James 1:17 [NASB], the HOLY SPIRIT declares: < 17 Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. >
The morning star in our hearts is the living and growing dynamic – in substance (Gk: hupostasis) and witness (Gk: marturia) – of the prophetic that expresses the fullness of JESUS CHRIST specific to our state of being, in fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets to accomplish the FATHER’s will.
In Revelation 22:16, YESHUA MASHIAH is prophetically addressed as the Bright Morning Star, the Root and Offspring of David.
Revelation 22:16 reads: < “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant (the offspring) of David, the bright morning star.” >
The substance and witness of JESUS CHRIST configured into our inward parts, by the HOLY SPIRIT, defines the specifics of our creation in JESUS CHRIST, in the FATHER’s will. The Specifics are entirely of the substance and witness of JESUS CHRIST (2 Cor 3:3, NKJV; Eph 2:10; 2 Cor 5:17).
As Morning Stars, being created in the substance and witness of JESUS CHRIST, we are prophetically established as descendants (or, offspring) of David [David meaning the well-Beloved] in the flesh of the LAMB fashioned into us (see Eph 5:30, KJV; 2 Cor 3:3, NKJV).
We are descendants of David [or, offspring of David] as the Root of David [the actuality of YESHUA as our BELOVED] takes form in us in substance and witness.
As the revelation of YESHUA as the BELOVED is configured [is perfected and completed] into us [by the HOLY SPIRIT – John 16:14] we become a people after YHWH’s Heart, who will do all of YHWH’s will, as we live in (Rom 8:2), by (Phil 4:19, NKJV) and through (1 John 4:9, NASB) CHRIST JESUS (Gal 4:19; Col 1:28).
Acts 13:22c (YLT) describes David prophetically as: < a man according to My [YHWH’s] heart, who shall do all My will. >
The ‘Morning Star’ is the testimonial [prophetic] reality that is to be developed in the fullness of JESUS CHRIST, in all who understand that they are Epistles of CHRIST, fashioned in hearts of flesh [see 2 Corinthians 3:3, NKJV] in fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets.
The sequence of Scripture flowing from Exodus 31:18 to Exodus 32:16 to 2 Corinthians 3:3, NKJV, explains this dynamic of the prophetic (in fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets) that is essential to every born-again Christian becoming a peculiar Epistle of CHRIST and an actual disciple of JESUS CHRIST.
The ‘Morning Star’ is the Testimony of JESUS developed in us as a specific Epistle of MESSIAH. The root of the Testimony of JESUS is called the Root of David. The living expression of the Testimony of JESUS is called the Offspring of David. And, the functional dynamic of the Testimony of JESUS is called the Key of David [as declared in Revelation 3:7].
The ‘David’ – YESHUA, as the BELOVED, revealed, perfected and completed – in us, in hearts of flesh, describes what we have actualized of YESHUA [as declared in John 1:16-17, NASB+KJV], in His fullness, that will express each one of us “as a man according to YHWH’s Heart, who will do YHWH’s will”.
As YESHUA ADONAI declared in John 16:14, this will come into being through the ministry of the HOLY SPIRIT: < 14 “He will [the HOLY SPIRIT] glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. >
Without ‘David’ being testimonially alive in us, we will be unable to operate our gift’s and callings in accordance with the demands of GOD’s Law [as we see Matthew 7:21-23].
As YESHUA ADONAI declared: < “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” >
And, He must be our well-beloved in a Shabbat-Shalom opened in our inward parts!
