Pull of Gravity

When we keep away from the LORD. When we do not fast, the pull of spiritual gravity draws us downwards to the world. The only way to float up to heaven is to disconnect from flesh by way of fasting. When we fast, we slice off the spiritual loads attached to us, those hindrances, those hurdles, those obstacles, encumbrances, barriers, obstructions, impediments and  restraints. We gain the freedom to execute a true relocation - from the realm of darkness to the real of light. We submit ourselves to the upward currents of the Spirit of the Living God. We surrender to the cleansing and purification of His fire.

Without revelation and without pursuing the way of wisdom, life becomes a continuing battle between this ominous gravity and the summons of the creator. Our attachments to this world become our tethering, our bondage, our imprisonment. But the instrument of freedom is now revealed. This vessel that is anchored to the mud can be released and anchored on the true Rock, the anchor of the soul! We must sail to a new sanctuary, a Safe Harbor. It is a safe refuge, the eternal destiny of those who belong to the LORD of LORDs. 

The instruments of bondage have names. But their sounds are not pleasant, not musical or artistic. They describe the chains of imprisonment like fleshly lust, uncontrolled bodily passions, unrestrained negative emotions, gluttony, sexual immorality, depravity, hatred, jealousy, bitterness, gossip, deception, false witness, prostitution, theft, pride and arrogance, rebellion, witchcraft, the love of money, contempt for fellow human beings, exploitation, corruption, false prophesy, devil worship, submission to satan, idolatry, heedlessness, selfishness, cruelty, drunkenness, homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, incest, cannibalism and every other evil that we fall prey to while on this earth. These are the chains of the slave-master and he who tells you it is OK to have sex outside marriage is a messenger of satan. Those who tell you it's fine to rape your own children are devil worshipers.Those who promote the doctrine of "equality" as the means to advance homosexuality and lesbianism are truly lucifer's errand boys. The only objective of all this war is to mock God and bring shame to the KING OF KINGS. It is the war of all wars and the LORD must win. Make sure you are on the side of victory. In spiritual war, there are no prisoners of war, only winners and losers. Be a winner. Be on the side of Christ Jesus.

Sanctifying Garment

To sanctify is to set apart as or declare holy; consecrate; free from sin; purify. I would add, 'to make righteous' because the scripture says: Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness[Genesis 15:6]. 

Nakedness began to be associated with shame after sin came into this world in the garden of Aden. Shame, then became a covering, a garment, whose fabric is woven with sin. This story will unfold in the next few days. For the sake of giving a preview, we put on the garment of shame starting in Eden, but there is a way back to the garment of praise, the rich garment, the glorious garment, the garment of grace, the attire of honor and dignity: the wedding gown without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 

The only perfect article from earth that can be presented before Jehovah is the precious and holy blood of Christ. Therefore, a return to the beginning means to be clothed and covered by that most precious blood. To be enclosed by grace, to become an object and beneficiary of the LORD's mercy.

It is a return that is executed by repentance to reconcile and reconnect with the Father who had evicted us from His household. We were rejected and alienated - a fatherless generation. But now, we have returned to Him by virtue of His compassion and mercy, by the way of repentance and forgiveness. We are able to re-enter the Garden where the God of All Creation, Maker of Heaven and Earth, walks with His children.

Surely it is a place of rest, a peaceful locality, a land of joy criss-crossed by the most clear water of the River of the Water of Life.

All that is left is to walk through scripture and unfold this mystery. I can only introduce this story. The true teller provides so much more that you really must go to him and obtain the details.
