1 John 3:1-3 “Behold, what Love the Father has given us, that we should be called the sons of God, the world does not know us, because it does not know him. Beloved, now we are the sons of God, and it is not yet made manifest what we shall be; but we know that if he shall be revealed, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. And every one that has this hope in him purifies himself, even as He is pure”
Our Father is Divine in nature and His offspring are like Him, created in His image. Our potential and value in Gods eyes are far more than we realize. Like the pattern Son, we are one hundred percent human and have deposited within a Sprit that is one hundred percent God. As I begin my journey my spirit knows God (tree of life) and my soul knows good and evil (tree of knowledge). I am driven by the spirit into the wilderness of many circumstances that cause me to hunger and thirst for Him. In this place of brokenness, I am made aware of both His death and resurrection life as the veil of my heart is removed and He takes up permanent residence (new heart) there to rule and reign over my soul. My heart becomes the throne room through which the divine life of my spirit flows. My soul is released from the bondage of the here and now and begins to magnify the Lord in every circumstance. The Kingdom of God (Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost) purifies me and becomes my greater unseen reality. I’m not waiting for eternal life, I have it right now. I am taught by the Spirit to guard my heart so that nothing may hinder or filter the flow His life. My soul (mind, emotions and will) is reserved to host His presence and give expression to the heart of the Father.
Proverbs 4:23 “Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life”
