Declaring The End - Isaiah 46:9-11

Isaiah 46:9-11 ESV 

remember the former things of old;
for I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like me,
declaring the end from the beginning
and from ancient times things not yet done,
saying, My counsel shall stand,
and I will accomplish all my purpose,’
calling a bird of prey from the east,
the man of my counsel from a far country.
I have spoken, and I will bring it to pass;
I have purposed, and I will do it.

In Genesis, God declared the end from the beginning. "Let there be light." In Revelation, the sun is no longer needed because the Father and Son are the light of the world. 

The light of the world has come and grows brighter with each soul that takes the flame of Holy Spirit. 

This is the spoken word of God and it will be fulfilled.

Stubble Trouble - Malachi 4:1

Malachi 4:1 ESV 

“For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble. The day that is coming shall set them ablaze, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.

The day of the Lord will come like a consuming fire and not a fire of illumination as was the burning bush. 

The word has gone out and the harvest draws near. There will be trouble for the stubble. Don't live in that bubble of ignorance. Put down roots deep in the word.

Co-creators

God created everything by His word, including man. 

His children are not created, but reborn from man. 

It takes a word from us for this to take place. 

When we speak the word we become co-creators with God as we join together in a new creation of heaven and earth. The expanse between the waters disappears as the living water merges with the waters of the earth until the sea is no more.  

His word shall endure and so shall we if His word becomes ours.

Christ In The Flesh

We don't obey the law to be saved, we obey the law because we are saved. 

We fulfill the law because we in the body of Christ. He gave the law to Moses and fulfilled the law in the man called Jesus. He is the first and last word of God. It is now written on our hearts by the presence of the Holy Spirit, which is Christ. Our bodies manifest Christ in the flesh. 

One day we will arise from this grave of mortal flesh and join Him in resurrected bodies like His. Until then, our spirits are joined with Him, never to part from the eternal life that is His. 

Fulfilled - Luke 4:21

Luke 4:21 ESV 
And he began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”

Luke 22:37
For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors.’ For what is written about me has its fulfillment.”

Luke 24:44
Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”

Galatians 5:14
For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

In one way the law did not go away. Jesus fulfilled the law. The law teaches the righteousness of God and our weakness in abiding by that law. Jesus showed us how to be the righteousness of God and the way to finally obey the requirements of God. That possibility is within the reach of every one. This is confirmed by the many who have done just that and by the witness of the Holy Spirit. 

The old law no longer applies to anyone who is in the body of Christ. They have fulfilled the law through Jesus. We are in the will and purpose of God for the glory of creation, for the glory God. 

There is one word from the word of God that lies at the end. It is the same word that was at the beginning. 

LOVE

You Renew - Psalms 104:27-30

Psalms 104:27-30 ESV 

These all look to you,
to give them their food in due season.
When you give it to them, they gather it up;
when you open your hand, they are filled with good things.
When you hide your face, they are dismayed;
when you take away their breath, they die
and return to their dust.
When you send forth your Spirit, they are created,
and you renew the face of the ground.

Their sustenance comes in due season. Revelation at the right time and what is needed. This is our daily bread. Every good thing comes from the hand of our Father, like the gentle rain of manna from heaven. 

From dust we came and to dust we return. This is the arc of a natural man. When we receive His Spirit we become a new creature, the launching of an awakened being whose trajectory leaves the dust far behind and forever. 

The Spirit no longer hovers over the water, but has descended on our earth. We are separated from the sea humanity and have become part of the new earth.

His face shines on us. We become visible in His light. His light illuminates from the inside and we become stars that give light to the night, that burn without being consumed.

So Turn - Ezekiel 18:21-24

Ezekiel 18:1-4 ESV

The word of the Lord came to me: “What do you mean by repeating this proverb concerning the land of Israel, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge’? As I live, declares the Lord God, this proverb shall no more be used by you in Israel. Behold, all souls are mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is mine: the soul who sins shall die.

Ezekiel 18:21-24
“But if a wicked person turns away from all his sins that he has committed and keeps all my statutes and does what is just and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions that he has committed shall be remembered against him; for the righteousness that he has done he shall live. Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares the Lord God, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live? But when a righteous person turns away from his righteousness and does injustice and does the same abominations that the wicked person does, shall he live? None of the righteous deeds that he has done shall be remembered; for the treachery of which he is guilty and the sin he has committed, for them he shall die.

Turn away from wickedness, and all sins are forgotten. 

Turn away from righteousness, and all righteous deeds are forgotten. 

God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. Heaven rejoices at the turning of the wicked, when a soul is found in the life of God. 

We will be found standing one way or the other. 

Ezekiel 18:32
For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord God; so turn, and live.”
