is as well as one another?Remember you are thebody of Christ on the earthtoday, we need to act likeit, walk like it, talk like it,and in fact be like He isaccording to the word ofGod.
I John 4:17
“In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world.”
“And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One).”
I John 2:6
“Whoever says he abides in Him ought [as a personal debt] to walk and conduct himself in the same way in which He walked and conducted Himself.”
More and more I’m hear-ing that’s what’s happeningall over the country, peopletaking time for other people,giving for others needs nomatter what the need orwhere it is. I John 4:17 as Inow understand more fully, Irealize that what the HolySpirit is saying here is thetruth as God sees it but wein the Body of Christ, ofwhich he is the head,haven’t taken up the mantrathat the Lord has given us.We are still acting likeworms instead of butterflies,beautiful Monarch butter-flies. How sad it is to see somany in the Body of Christ,His external family, not haveany idea of who He really isin our everyday life and whowe are as true sons anddaughters of God ourFather. Yes, things arechanging but I must ask thequestion – where have webeen for the past 20 years?God help us.I would give you manymore scriptures but what isneeded is to walk in thetruth of what He hasalready done. You and Iare the chosen of ourFather God and oh how weneed to live like it in everyway, it’s already been donefor us, we only need toaccept it.I have to admit I don’tunderstand what has keptthe body of Christ fromreally understanding whothey are in Christ Jesus. Inreality we are to take theplace of Christ on the earthtoday, I ask the question ofall of us, how well are wedoing? Maybe we, notice Isaid we, need to step up tothe plate and let Him haveHis way for a while notlooking to the left or to theright, but straight on intothe face of the Master. Iclose with this:
The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you. The Lord make His
To the Family,
that is not the case at all.I have spent over 35years working out in thefield, out in the battle fieldsyou might say, learningwhat only you can learnedon the highway and by wayof life. Paul again makessome statements that Icould make equally as well,alone, stuck out in themiddle of nowhere, hungry,doing without in all areaslearning to live with little aswell as in abundance.Thanks to the Saints inDavis I was able to pay forgas to make it home and$10 dollars to buy food forthe family, thanks to Mrs.Johnson the clown forbuying the bags ofgroceries so we ate for afew days, thanks to thebuilding contractor whowas awakened by the Lordat 2am and told to bring themoney to our house or thepower would have been cutoff. Yes, we learned thewalk of faith by living it andyes we are still learning
Equipping the Saints,
scriptures He would thatwe not be ignorant aboutthe Kingdom and also the“what is” of the devil.I know from experienceand watching as well asworking with the body ofChrist, we have not done agood job at equipping andpreparing the ChristianBody for what lies aheadfor each of us in this life. Iask you to bear with meand not think I say any ofthis out of pride, thinking Iknow it all, for believe me
