Ashes of the red heifer, sprinkling
the unclean sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh. (Heb. 9:13)
Why do we unequally yoke ourselves
with death? It is not sin that separates us, the chosen, fromGod. It is the "negative influences", ie: people at work, family and
friends (earthly, and yes, even heavenly), T.V., music, movies, religious tradition of men, etc., upon
mind, emotion, and conscience, birthed from pressures of situations and
circumstances around us.
Our mental attitude is strongly
influenced by this world's spirit. Our soul life is affected. This is
where having an attitude adjustment comes into play. I turn to Matthew,
Chapter 5, The Beatitudes, or as I like to say, "Be The Attitude", which
wonderfully raptures me up into the higher dimension of God's anointed
Friends, detest being defiled and
contaminated by touching death and being corrupted by this Narcissistic
world. Is it any wonder, Lord, you said, "Shake off the dust of your
feet", (your feet represent your walk). Also, you said, "Let the dead
bury their dead."
Water (Holy Spirit) of
separation, will bring decrease daily to these things: negative
music, negative news and programs on T.V., negative movies (death,
death, and more death), conversations that produce
anger, tears of sadness and sympathy, fear, anxiety, and insecurity.
Idolatry (the worship and holding onto dead men's traditions), gossip
(lies), dependence on the use of medicine (Greek word pharmakeia, where
we get the word pharmacy, which means witchcraft), and dependence on
government to solve our needs, rather than turning to our God (I Sam.
8:4-20). These are all related to the world's system. We are in the
world, but not of the world.
Thank you, our gracious loving God,
that we were separated before the foundation of the world. We do cherish
you, and stand in awe of your royalty (kingship), humility (priesthood),
and your sweet fragrance (presence). AMEN
My precious God, you took my hand and pulled me up, out
from the turbulent seas. As you continued holding my hand while we walked, there appeared before us a
most beautiful waterfall.
We continued walking toward the falls until we entered in, allowing it's
power to consume us.
Suddenly, I could see your head and shoulders rise above the falls, and
then the falls became your pure white raiment. From top to bottom, I was transfigured to my
true image, no longer was I in my flesh covering. And there with me, under your garment, were all
the members of your body, fused together, joined to your head and government. ONE.
