Predestinated To Be Conformed
Rom 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
I would ask you, who did he not forknow? Before you ever came to this earth you were predestinated to be conformed to his image. You can fight it and cause yourself a lot of discomfort and hurt but you WILL be conformed to his image. The divine life in you will eventually come forth and shine. Daniel was told in chapter 12 that many that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake.† The dust of the earth represents the carnal human reasoning and the body of flesh.
†Rom 13:11 knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. Today all over the earth† people are beginning to awake from their sleep. We now realize there is a diving purpose for our lives and we learn to rest knowing that it is God that is working in us both to will and to do his good pleasure. No longer do we need to be concerned for our future because we know that our destiny is secure. Even when we get into rebellion his promise of being comformed into his image does not change.
Jer 29:10-11† For thus saith the Lord, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place. 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end..
Eph 4:4-6 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
These scriptures say it very clearly. Ther is only ONE. There is not a Christian God, a Hindu God, a Muslem God. There is only ONE. Also there is only One Spirit. So no matter what religion you are in if you are worshiping God from the heart and you are loving God and loving one another you are awakening to the reality of your being and you will soon come out of religion. Religion always divides. The Christian against the Muslem, the Muslem against the Jews and all the Christian denominations are divided against one another.
There is only ONE faith. Whatever Church or religion you belong to if you are not imprisioned by doctrines and you are one with all who worship God, you understand oneness. Most of Godís people worship doctrines and believe what they have been taught by their religious teachers which divide Godís people rather than teaching them oneness.
1 Cor 6:17 He that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
1 Cor 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
Another† thing that happens whenwe begin to awaken is we realize that our spirit and Godís spirit and not two spirits but one spirit. We then begin to live from our spirit instead of our carnal religious mind. When we stand to speak we speak from our spirit and minister to the spirits of men and women and not to their natural mind. The words we speak become spirit and life to those we minister to. We are in for a great awakening this year of 2012 by folks all over the world.
The people of God are beginning to come together in the spirit of unity.† Unity of Spirit, not unity of mind, not unity of doctrines, but the unity of the Spirit. You see if you believe that everyone has to believe the same as you to be saved then you will never know the unity of the spirit. To be one with all hmanity does not mean you have to agree with their religion or their beliefs. We know that Jesus died for all and conquered death and the grave. The scriptures teach that when He died all of the old creation died with him. As we are regenerated and begin to awaken to our true nature and identity then all old things are passed away and we begin a journey from carnality, from religion and all old things pass away and we have a new perspective of God and creation as a whole.
According to our perspective we live in time, and time for us is a process. In Spirit there is no time and that is why God can look into eternity and see everyone justified, glorified and fully redeemed. He can see you full of His glory and presence. He does not look at where you are today but he sees the finished product.
We just release Him from our spirit everywhere we go. To do that is very simple and easy. Just become a lover and a servant everywhere you go. The more you serve others and love them the more you become Christlike. You do not try to convince them that you are right and they are wrong. They have been raised to believe certain things and believe in their scriptures just like you have. How can we expet to minister to them by telling them we are right and they are wrong. The only way to properly minister to anyone is by compassion and love. If you truly love folks your presence alone can bring them a revelation of God. Your actions will speak much louder than your words. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
