SET YOUR AFFECTION ON THINGS ABOVE. Posted 080519 @ 8.22 am
I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: SET YOUR AFFECTION ON THINGS ABOVE. It is written in Colossians 3.2: Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Submit yourselves therefore to Me, resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Read and understand the mystery of Christ, which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto My holy apostles and prophets by My Spirit; that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs; and of the same body, and partakers of My promise in Christ by the gospel. Ye have boldness and access with confidence by the faith in Christ. Let Christ dwell in your hearts by faith; tht ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all My fulness. I am able to do exceeding abundantly above all that ye ask or think, according to the power that worketh in you.
Be strong in Me and in the power of My might. For I so loved the world that I gave My only begotten SON, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth at My right hand. Soon I shall wipe away all tears from your eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away. In My house are many mansions, and My SON has prepared a place for you. Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which I have prepared for them that love Me. I know that you have need of these things and I have promised to supply all your need according to My riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal; for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve Me and mammon. Choose this day whom ye will serve. If I be God, follow Me, but if Baal be god, follow him. Seek first My kingdom and My righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. You should desire a better country, that is a heavenly; where I am not ashamed to be called your God; for I have prepared for you a city. According to My promise, look for new heavens anda new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen. I will be exalted in the earth. SET YOUR AFFECTION ON THINGS ABOVE. Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
