Then David spoke to the chiefs of the Levites to appoint their relatives the singers, with instruments of music, harps, lyres, loud-sounding cymbals, to raise sounds of joy. 1 Chronicles 15:16.
Splendor and majesty are before Him, Strength and joy are in His place. 1 Chronicles 16:27.
Then he said to them, “Go, eat of the fat, drink of the sweet, and send portions to him who has nothing prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10.
Jesus answered, “How can the guests of the bridegroom fast while he is with them? They cannot, so long as they have him with them.” Mark 2:19.
“And behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20.
For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries. 1 Corinthians 14:2.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
There is cause for rejoicing here. Why? Because you are redeemed. Because you are loved. Because you have everything. Because you can change everything. I make all things new and so can you.
How do you make things new? The same way I do. I do not put up with old things, I make them new. I send forth My Spirit and they are created and I renew the dust of the earth. And My Spirit is in you giving life to your mortal body. And you were formed from the dust of the earth and then I breathed into you the breath of life. A body without breath is dead. It is the breath that gives you newness of life. My Words are spirit and life. My Words are Spirit-breathed. It is My Word that makes things new. When you confessed Jesus as Lord you became a new creation in Christ. And how were you born again to newness of life? By the imperishable seed of My Word.
My apostle Paul wrote under inspiration of My Spirit: “For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. [this was the “old” you, what Paul calls the “old man”] But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:3-7.
It is the Holy Spirit that I send forth that renews the dust of the earth and renews you. And He is My Promise to you. Jesus told the disciples to wait after He ascended back to Me till He poured My Promise on them before they went out to witness. And My Promise? The power from on High, your precious Holy Spirit, My gift to you. If you but knew My gift you would ask My Son for a drink and He would give you living water that would be a wellspring within you leaping UP to eternal life. Living water, rivers pouring out of your inner man to a renew a dying world.
I send the Holy Spirit and Jesus pours Him out upon you. Acts 2:33. Jesus baptizes you in the Holy Spirit. Total immersion in the living water. All who are thirsty come and drink without cost. My Son has paid the price for you to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
My Spirit in you and on you makes you new. And He guides you to the truth. And the truth will set you free. And what is the truth? My Word is the truth. John 17:17. It is established forever and it never gets old, the grass withers and the flower fades, but My Word will never pass away, wither, or fade. And My Word is living water that washes you clean, without spot, blemish or wrinkle in you but a born again renewed cleansed spirit with you sealed in Christ by the seal of My Spirit, whom I have given you as a pledge of the redemption of your bodies to a glorified immortal new body on the last day.
The more you are filled with My Word the more new you will stay. Each day will be new! Each morning My mercies are new. How? By My Spirit that puts life in you, My divine life. And My life never fades, withers, or passes away. Do not be ignorant of so great a gift that resides in you who believe. Do not let Him lie dormant, fan the gift into flame!
How do you fan it into flame? By putting on the garment for praise in place of the spirit of heaviness. By addressing one another in songs, hymns and Spirit-inspired songs. By keeping up a melody to Me in your heart. With joy you will draw water from the springs of Salvation! Rejoice in Me, for My joy is your strength. A merry heart does good like a medicine. I anoint you with the oil of joy as the Body of Christ, for your Head is anointed with Joy and He gives you My Word which shares His joy with you and makes your joy complete. In My Presence there is fullness of joy and I am with you and in you by My Holy Spirit. That is why I tell you that the early Church could not but be filled with JOY and the HOLY SPIRIT. You cannot be anything but joyful when you are filled with My Spirit for then My divine life is IN you and I am joyful, strong, faithful, and true. And it is My love for you that gives you joy unspeakable filled with glory and does good for you like a healing balm, like a perfect medicine. My Words are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh. I make you perfect and complete, spirit, soul, and body. Nothing missing, nothing broken and no one alone.
And how do you draw out the water from the fountain of renewal that is in you? How do you tap into that well? By speaking mysteries in your spirit to draw out mysteries that are in the language of the Spirit. For you do not know how to pray as you ought, but you, having the first fruits of the Spirit as a pledge of the good things coming, even you groan within yourselves, as all creation does, waiting eagerly for the redemption of your body. For in hope you have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? But if you hope for what you do not see, with perseverance you wait eagerly for it. In the same way the Spirit also helps your weakness; for you do not know how to pray as you should for the exceeding greatness of the things I have prepared for you who love Me, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for you with revelations too deep for words; and I who know what is in your heart, you deepest desires for the eternal truths, know what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for you who believe according to the My amazing, awesome, perfect and pleasing Will for your life. Your destiny. The goal of your salvation.
Know that I cause all things to work together for good to for you who love Me, to those you who are called according to My purpose. Romans 8:23-28.
When you speak in tongues you speak My wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which I preordained before the ages to your glory. 1 Corinthians 2:7. You speak to Me when you talk in tongues, 1 Corinthians 14:2, and in the Holy Spirit you utter secret truths that you do not understand and hidden things you do not understand, but you are drawing them out so they are transferred to your mind. You are saying things you do not understand, but I reveal them to you in language of the Spirit to your spirit and then it will move to you understanding at the proper time. A polished arrow in My quiver to shoot forth at the appointed time. I will release the mystery to you right when you need it, but you will have drawn it out into your spirit ready for its revelation at the appointed time. It does not tarry and will not disappoint, it will be right on time to accomplish the purpose for which it was sent, ready in your storehouse, to make all things work together for your good when the time comes. Secret truths and hidden wisdom that will come out at the proper time without the devil knowing what you are about, without you. Things beyond all you can ask or imagine. This is a grace gift to put My life in you going beyond your understanding. It will renew you when you pray in tongue, it will build you up and things will start happening that you cannot stop and hinder with doubt and fear. Paul prayed in tongues more than you all, 1 Corinthians 14:18, and he accomplished more than all the other apostles.
For to you I revealed My thoughts through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of My thoughts. For no one knows your deepest thoughts except your spirit in you. Even so, no one knows My thoughts except My Spirit. And now in Christ, you have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from Me and is One God with Me and My Son, so that you may know the things freely given to us by Me, which things you can also speak, but not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. Do not despise tongues, do not fail to make use of so great a gift. Fan it into flame by using it. If you just walk in the flesh and words of the world, you stay a natural man, like one not born again that operates only in the flesh (the five senses), who does not accept the things of the Spirit, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. But, you who are born again by receiving Jesus as Lord, must renew your mind with My Word and prayer so that you begin to spiritually appraise all things, yet you can really be appraised by no one. For who has known My mind to instruct Me of who you are? But I have given you the anointing of the Holy Spirit, which is the mind of Christ (the anointed One). 1 Corinthians 2:7-16.
So, make a joyful noise unto Me. Join in the joyful shout of victory. Draw out mysteries and be renewed. Make all things new. Look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. Judge (and change) all the things you see by the eternal truth of My Word, and get My wisdom on the subject by the gift of the Holy Spirit, your counselor. Speak in His language. You can. You have only to utter it out. Ask Me to fill you with the Holy Spirit. I give Him without measure to those who speak My Word.
For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed but to be clothed, so that what is mortal will be swallowed up by life. Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge. 2 Corinthians 5:4-5.
