FILLING UP THE AFFLICTIONS OF CHRIST FOR HIS BODY

cross circles

Does Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) once for all sacrifice negate our need to do anything? There seems to be quite a bit of confusion around this issue these days.

While we never minimize or replace Yeshua’s sacrifice on the cross, we also don’t overlook the oneness process required to enter the full stature of the crimson flow. Ephesians 4:15 tells us that it is necessary for the Mature Body of Christ to grow up into Him in all things right after revealing the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ in Ephesians 4:13. The Corporate One New Man in Christ will accurately display to all the world the fullness of the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ the same way that all fullness dwelt in Yeshua through the blood of the cross: “He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn of the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven” (Colossians 1:18-20 NASB).

We must not overlook key components of Scripture. Scriptures like Matthew 16:24 where Yeshua shows His disciples the way of oneness with Him requires a crucified life: “If anyone wished to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me” (Matthew 16:24 NASB). It’s noteworthy that Luke 9:23 repeats this message by adding the concept of a lifestyle of daily crucifixion “And He was saying to them all, ‘If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me” (Luke 9:23 NASB).

Experience reveals that nothing better develops Christ’s Character within us like sufferings and tribulations. “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;  but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy” (1 Peter 4:12-13 NKJV). As we offer our sufferings and sacrifices to Him, we are crucified in union with Christ in an ever-increasing greater measure, so we can live by the faith of the Son of God (Galatians 2:20).

Colossians 1:24 blows to pieces the concept that Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) once for all sacrifice negate our need to do anything. The Apostle Paul tells us: “Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I do my share on behalf of His body, which is the church, in filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions… fully carry out the preaching of the word of God” (Colossians 1:24-25 NASB). Wow! Did you get that?! Each member of His Body must fill up the afflictions of Christ in their flesh for His Body’s sake to fulfill the word of God.

This is a massive key component to Yeshua’s Mature Head attaching to His Mature Body (Daniel 7:9; Revelation 1:14). The fully mature Head of Messiah Yeshua connecting to His fully mature Body is the undifferentiated, indistinguishable state of the Messiah. This is THE PERFECT MAN: “Until we all become one in faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, and become a perfect man according to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13 Lamsa’s Aramaic).

DISCERNMENT IS GOLD!!!

Discernment

A life based in the truth in love requires us to mature. “Speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ” (Ephesians 4:15 NASB). This is a place that we exercise our spiritual senses to discern both good and evil: “For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant; But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil” (Hebrews 5:13-14 NASB).

“Discerning of spirits” is one of the spiritual gifts listed in 1 Corinthians 12:10, which I believe is one of the most needed spiritual gifts in these end days.

When I first started to learn about spiritual discernment, I “felt bad” because I felt I was being critical and judgmental of the people or situations that I was discerning. The Lord told me to pray for the person(s) or situation I was discerning in order to keep myself from being judgmental and critical. It works!

A dear friend, Sara Robbins, pointed out that “many do not understand the importance of discerning good and evil. I think a lot of people don’t lean into it due to misunderstanding of “judging.” There’s a certain amount of judgment one must make in using discernment. It is very important to use discernment, but the discernment MUST be out of His love and wisdom, instead of fear.”

Can I hear a big AMEN?! All godly discernment is definitely based out of His love, wisdom, understanding, counsel, et cetera.

Another dear friend, Suzanne Bridges, shared: “I feel as time continues, it is of most urgency that we operate in discerning of spirits (plural). This can be a great blessing and strong protection.”  Then she shared an incredible example. “I remember years ago being at a conference where Bobby Connor was speaking. He spoke on the need for discernment in the Body of Christ. He shared an experience that I’ve never forgotten. He’d been asked to come and speak into a church that was going through all kinds of issues. The congregation, in an effort to determine the place of “access,” increased intercession throughout the week. To their frustration, just as it seemed they’d advance, something would create whiplash in the midst of “freak” events (financially, relationally, etc). Bobby asked to attend one of the intercession meetings. The prayer leader began praying in the spirit with the others. In just a few minutes, Bobby shut the meeting down, and chastised the pastor and leadership for not operating in discernment and protecting the sheep. He informed them that the prayer leader was speaking in a wrong spirit and casting spells; he discerned she was indeed a witch. She left; he led them in repentance. The church contacted him later, and shared that there had been a complete turn-around for the good. They started interceding as a congregation for the discerning of spirits. Holy Spirit taught me to pray for discernment to be married to wisdom and understanding. This helped me considerably. Discernment can be overwhelming when first started… so much info. However, wisdom provides an action (if needed or not); and understanding explains. Often times, understanding will stop fear in its track.”

Discernment is gold!!! Remember, when we discern both good and evil, we are simply recognizing or perceiving something, which is not participation. In order to abhor what is evil and cling to what is good (Rom. 12:9), we have to be able to distinguish between the two. We don’t dwell on the evil, but rightly judge something’s essence (in truth and love) in order to not be in agreement with darkness or evil; and thus, keep ourselves from being deceived.

Never lay down your discernment. Be of noble character and check out the veracity of what’s being taught via His Spirit and His Truth (the Word of God).

One last thing that I’d like to mention about discernment is I see a lot is people seem to lay down their own discernment when it comes to leaders. I encourage you to especially discern leaders, especially discern “big names.” You and I are personally accountable for what we allow into our life. Blinding trusting anyone is not wise. Among us are wolves in sheep clothing: “Beware of false prophets [teachers], who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits” (Matthew 7:15-16a NKJV Addition mine).

Give em heaven!!!

SONS OF MAN BECOMING SONS OF GOD

man-white-fiber-freq

Metatron, the Prince of the Presence, is the undifferentiated state of the Messiah. What is the heavenly manifestation of the One New Man in Christ (i.e., Messiah) anyway? Yeshua (Jesus), who is the Messiah, is seated in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). He is the Head of the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4:15). The Body of Christ is currently in flux. We currently see various stages of development in the Body of Christ here on earth. Romans 8:19 reveals that all creation is groaning for the manifestation of the sons of the Living God. They are groaning for those made after the Order of Melchizedek made like unto the Son of God (Hebrews 7:3). The “Youth” Metatron consists of the sons of man who have become the sons of God. Understand that Metatron only consists of the Fully Mature Body of Christ connected to the Fully Mature Head of Christ – Yeshua. We can be, and are, part of the One New Man in Christ on earth, but Metatron solely consists of people who have literally become just like Jesus in heavenly places. This is one of the reasons Metatron is called the angel (not an archangel), the Prince of the Presence.
