Living This Life


What’s the major barrier to living ‘this life’ was a question asked of Wayne Jacobsen, that he addressed on the last pod cast, ‘No Need to Validate.’

His reply was, ‘It is my over estimation of my own capabilities.’
It's a revelation, not a seminar!!!

Friends, as long as we still think that we are called to, or we’re going to live this life, we’re sadly, horribly deceived, misguided.
Let’s look at what just might be at the root of this insane assumption that any of us is able to ‘live this life.’

“The serpent said to the woman, "You surely will not die!”For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

This life, our only Life is what is only available in and through our spirit union.
He that is joined to the Lord is ONE spirit!
This thing called, ‘the Christian life’ is not something added to what we already think we have going for us.

Friends, apart from Him we can do nothing. Our life is a revelation that only continues to point to the living reality of Him who IS the only life of/in the believer, period.
Just look around you, there are so many professing to believe in Jesus, well as good as that might be theology wise, the very demons believe the same thing.

This revelation of Christ as our life is NOT a Velcro stick on Jesus patch, wherein we derive the said revelation through some stupid mechanical device.

I am not an alarmist, but all I know from what I sense is happening in the two realms I live in along with every other believer on this planet is, life is going to get a whole lot shittier than anything any of us have ever known.
Without being brought into an eye witness knowing Him for really fricken real, it’s over before it even starts.

I’m so grateful Father that you have hidden this from the wise guys, and revealed it unto the little children.

Rich,
Ha ha! Love your real and raw language usage! It's perfect to point to the substance in this post.

I love what you said here:
"This thing called, ‘the Christian life’ is not something added to what we already think we have going for us."
And...
"Friends, apart from Him we can do nothing. Our life is a revelation that only continues to point to the living reality of Him who IS the only life of/in the believer, period."

Amen!

Blessings,

I don't know about Canada but for the most part American "christianity" is an inch deep and 3000 miles wide. The focus has become man instead of God's glory. If you have the time listen to this short clip.

ike,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts here bro.

In my opinion, no one other than the human race itself has a monopoly on being religious.

Unless the Father opens our eyes to see, the father of lies/religion will go undetected living comfortably within our flesh convincing us that resistance is futile, we wll be assimulated~ha!

Only in continuing to follow Him, will we know the Truth, and the Truth will set/make us free.
