You are on a journey into the fullness of His presence. It is this presence that consumes anything that is unlike Him (spotless bride). His presence precedes His person. His presence reveals His person. As His presence increases His higher purpose for your life is realized. His life flows through you (the vine), when you (the branch) lose yourself in Him (abide). Just then you understand what the Holy Ghost is after, just then you find your true identity and realize that it’s not what you are doing for the Lord but what you are becoming as your life is exchanged for His (crucified life). The presence that rests on your life carries with it the absolute Lordship of Jesus Christ. You are taught by the Holy Ghost to say no to anyone or anything that would rob you of His presence. As you deny your self or someone else’s self (say no) His presence grows, and His person is revealed in an ever-increasing measure. We should not fear where this level of repentance (saying no) will take us. Carefully obeying (saying yes to the Lord) in “little things” will set the stage for an end time outpouring such as the world has never seen. This is how visitation (measure) becomes habitation (fullness). It is through Him in you that God finds expression and pleasure (glory).
Colossians 1:17-20 “Now Christ is the visible expression of the invisible God. He existed before creation began, for it was through him that everything was made, whether spiritual or material, seen or unseen. Through him, and for him, also, were created power and dominion, ownership and authority. In fact, every single thing was created through, and for him. He is both the first principle and the upholding principle of the whole scheme of creation. And now he is the head of the body which is composed of all Christian people. Life from nothing began through him, and life from the dead began through him, and he is, therefore, justly called the Lord of all. It was in him that the full nature of God chose to live, and through him God planned to reconcile in his own person, as it were, everything on earth and everything in Heaven by virtue of the sacrifice of the cross”
