We have established that we have an inward operating system that arises out of our heart, in the fullness of JESUS CHRIST [defined in His substance and witness] manifested into a heart of flesh [see 2 Cor 3:3, NKJV; Eze 36:26].
And, this progressive fulfillment is in accordance to the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets [see Ex 25:16; 31:16; 32:15-16; Eze 36:25-27; 2 Cor 3:3; Jer 31:31-34; 2 Cor 3:6, NKJV] in the Witness [as Rhema – John 6:63] and Testimony [as Logos – Luke 21:33] of YESHUA [see Matt 5:17-18].
What is developed in us in a progressive fulfillment, is a Witness of the Word [Romans 3:21], the faithful and true Witness of JESUS CHRIST [see Rev 3:14b] that stands in our mouth and in our heart [see Deut 30:14-15] through a new birth [see Eze 36:25-27], opened in us by the HOLY SPIRIT [John 3:8c] in the seed of MESSIAH [see Gal 3:6; 1 Peter 1:23], in the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets [see Matt 5:17; Luke 24:44-45; 1 John 5:10a, NKJV].
This inward witness is able to receive the Word from GOD and, this witness is also able to functionally transmit the Word of GOD [see Jer 1:11-12; Heb 1:3b; 3:1; 10:19-20, NKJV].
[I have written a book entitled “Biblical Spirituality” to explain the workings of the inward man. This book is available free from our website: www.thetabernacleschool.com]
We are speaking of the Word that is understood – received and actualized in a living evidence – in the Testimony of JESUS [see Rev 19:10c], in the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets [see Rom 3:21-23; Matt 5:17; Luke 24:44-45]. This is an understanding that knows YESHUA [Proverbs 9:10c; Heb 11:3a] a progressive revelation from the FATHER’s Heart.
This is the Rhema Word [the faithful and true Witness – Rev 3:14b] that the LORD JESUS upholds for fulfillment in the FATHER’s Will [see Heb 1:3b; John 5:19-20; 14:13].
Our mouth speaks out of the abundance of our heart [see Luke 6:45].
With our mouth: we can ask, we can seek and, we can knock at GOD’s Heart – in prayer and in ministry.
And, with our mouth we can: prophecy, declare, decree, teach, evangelize, counsel, preach, pull down strongholds, uproot the root of the lie, destroy fortresses, sow the seed of the Word, build-up disciples of JESUS CHRIST, operate the vocal, the revelatory and the power gifts etc.
In the Witness – in Spirit, Water and Blood [see 1 John 5:8, 10a] – we do all of these things in the prophetic actuality [of what is fulfilled because] of the finished work of the cross.
And, it is written that GOD will give us exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works within us [see Eph 3:20]. The power that works within us: stands in a Witness [which is the evidence of faith] in Spirit, Water and Blood; which is the Rhema Witness of the Logos Word of the Cross [see John 19:30, 34; 1 John 5:10a, 8, NKJV; 1 Cor 1:18, NASB].
This Witness in Spirit, Water and Blood, positions us in GOD [see 1 John 5:7, NKJV; Revelation 3:14b; Psalm 91:1; 24:3-4; 15:1-2; Gen 22:14] in the merits of the LAMB, through the veil of His Flesh formed in a growing [increasingly circumcised] heart of flesh within us [see 2 Cor 3:3, NKJV; Heb 10:19-20, NKJV].
This is the new and living way – opened in Blood Covenant – that operates through the veil of His flesh, opened in a circumcised heart of His flesh [that actualizes the Davidic Covenant in the BELOVED] within us.
This a Witness that develops through a heart of (His) flesh circumcised by the HOLY SPIRIT, in an intimacy that loves YHWH, by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS, in the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets [see Deut 30:6, 8; Jer 32:38-40; Eze 11:19-20; 2 Cor 3:3-6, NKJV; 2 Cor 4:6-7, NKJV].
The root of this Witness is the Root of David [see Rev 22:16]; that is, this Witness is rooted in YESHUA increasingly becoming our BELOVED [see 1 Cor 2:9-10, 7] our Husband.
And, as we increasingly operate in this Witness, we become the Offspring of David [see Rev 22:16; Psalm 132:11-12], the offspring of YESHUA’s love – actualized.
And, function in this Witness unveils the Key of David, that unlocks the evidence of all that stands in the Name of YESHUA as the BELOVED in our inward parts [see John 16:23-27].
All of our gifts, and the anointings that enable the operation of our gifts, must have: the Root of David; all of our gifts must be developed as we grow into becoming the Offspring of David; and, all of our gifts must progressively operate through the Key of David.
The Davidic Covenant is designed to be fulfilled in a Bride for the LAMB. This Bride will be a people after GOD’s Heart, who will [progressively] do all of GOD’s will [see Acts 13:22c].
Operating by the HOLY SPIRIT does not stand without checks and balances in our inward parts. We operate by the HOLY SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS [Rom 8:2] always, through a Witness in Spirit, Water and Blood [1 John 5:8, 10a, NKJV].
This is the Amen, the faithful and true Witness of YESHUA [Rev 3:14b] operating by the HOLY SPIRIT [John 14:16-18; 16:13-15], in members of His Body [Eph 4:13-16; 5:30-32, KJV]! Amen!
We can now understand that we are designed to be able to function by the HOLY SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS, in a Witness in Spirit, Water and Blood [1 John 5:8, NKJV], in order to actualize the freedom from the Law of Sin and Death that the FATHER has predestined for us [see Romans 8:2, 1-4] – from the Beginning [Rev 3:14b, NASB].
GBU! Be blessed to be a blessing.
