I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: ARE YOU LIVING AND MOVING AND HAVING YOUR BEING IN ME? It is written in Acts 17.28: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said: For we are also his offspring. Beloved, be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind that ye may prove what is My good and acceptable and perfect will. Do you seek to please men or are you seeking to be the servant of Christ? If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold all things are become new. Seek ye first My kingdom and My righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. For there hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but I am faithful and will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. For ye know that all things work together for good to them that love Me, to them that are called according to My purpose. 

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have; for I will never leave thee nor forsake thee. For whether ye live, ye live unto Me; and whether ye die, ye die unto Me: whether ye live or die, ye are Mine. And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily as unto Me and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord Christ, ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance; for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done; and there is no respect of persons. Walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. Why call me Lord, and do not the things which I say. Know ye not that to whom ye yield yourselves servant to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; where of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 

Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land; but if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword; for I have spoken it. How is the faithful city become an harlot! It was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water; thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves; everyone loveth gifts and followeth after rewards; they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them. Therefore, I will ease Me of Mine adversaries, and avenge Me of Mine enemies; and I will turn My hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross and take away all thy tin; and I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning; afterward thou shalt be called: The city of righteousness, the faithful city. Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness. And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake Me shall be consumed. For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen. For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water. And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them. 

Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing My will from the heart; with good will doing service, as unto the Lord and not to men; knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. And ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening; knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with Me. He that hath My commandments and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me; and he that loveth Me shall be loved by Me, and I will love him and will manifest Myself unto him. Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. He who saith he abideth in Me ought himself also so to walk the walk. Herein is your love made perfect, that ye may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are ye in this world. Walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For ye are light in the Lord; walk as children of light. And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved you, and hath given Himself for you an offering and a sacrifice to Me for a sweetsmelling savor. 

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil. Wherefore, be ye not unwise, but understanding what My will is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; speaking unto yourselves with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart unto Me, giving thanks always for all things unto Me in the name of your Lord Jesus Christ; submitting yourselves one to another in fear of Me; and let My Word dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts unto your Lord. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made thee free; and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called. Believe not every spirit but try the spirits whether they are of Me because many false prophets are gone out into the world. For ye are My workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which I hath before ordained that ye should walk in them. For I have shown thee what is good and what I require of thee; but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with Me. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, My love is not in him. ARE YOU LIVING AND MOVING AND HAVING YOUR BEING IN ME? Amen.
