Except The Word is made flesh, nothing has been (or, is being) accomplished.
Not that The Word would just be in the heavens, or in our heads, or thoughts; but, that The Word would be made manifest in our flesh …not later, but, beginning NOW! [Pastor]
My purpose in life is to be “Real” (ie. Realized), for “Real” …because, to really receive Jesus Christ is to actually die to yourself (the “old” you, that others knew), and come alive (from the dead) as a “new” creature-IN-Christ; to be seen by others. [Pastor]
But, rest assured …as Christ (The Word) was tempted (in the wilderness), so shall The Word be tried IN you; to prove its effectual staying and working power. [Matthew 4:1-11; Psalms 18:30]
And know this, that the strategy (or, wiles) of the enemy of your soul (the adversary/the devil) is to thwart/hinder/or frustrate God’s purpose IN your life, by working to circumvent/evade/sidestep/or, snatch away the Amen! From your lips; that would cause the purpose to be actualized.
[Pastor; Psalms 63:3-4]
MY LIPS SHALL PRAISE YOU, THUS WILL I BLESS YOU;
I WILL LIFT UP MY HANDS UNTO YOUR NAME!
