YOU AND FATHER ARE WOVEN TOGETHER IN LOVE
Fake truth gives rise to fake religion. But take heart. Even religion is not required in the post cross era.
“In this testament the curtain dividing the Holy place from the Holy of Holies was torn in the middle when Christ died on the cross. It meant man could now have access to the Holy of Holies and God come out to meet man. The distance that existed between man and God has completely been cancelled.” (1)
How cancelled? God is in you and with you. You and Father are one. Union with God is not achieved by the anointing or spiritual gifts. The anointing and the gifts are dependent on the incarnation. The major manifestation of the Spirit in this age is you.
The incarnation is it: Christ in you. The treasure in the field is this cancelled distance with God – the continuous union that is yours and ours. Never some distinctive or add-on purporting to give you what is already yours – intimacy with God.
Jesus replied, "Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them ‘ and make our home with them’ John 14.23 NIV.
The church of new creation life that is the ever-expanding Kingdom of God is the church of incarnated people. Those who have agreed with Christ that He has made them part of Himself – sons and daughters of the Holy Family are the church Jesus is building without human hands. In short they are the manifestation of Him.
‘On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you’ John 14.20 NIV.
God is just as much in and with you at the clothesline as at the pulpit. We worship God together not to overcome separation from God but to celebrate our continuous union with Him. God is just as much with you on Monday at the office as He was on Sunday at church. There is no sacred and secular in the Kingdom Age, no my time and God’s time. Just you and all of us in company with the trinity and they interwoven into our being. Distance between you and God is cancelled and you are the conduit of His Spirit and Life wherever you are.
