However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. Romans 8:9.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
Saints have resurrection joy because saints have resurrection power to employ.
If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Romans 8:11.
Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit. Zechariah 4:6. My power flows in you and overflows out of you by My Spirit in you. I pour My love in your heart by the gift of the Holy Spirit, Romans 5:5, but that means I pour all of Me into your heart for I am love. 1 John 4:16. And there is no power greater than love. It is stronger than death and its flame is eternal. It is resurrection power. It raised Jesus from the depths of Sheol to My throne in Heaven.
“Put me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm. For love is as strong as death, its ardor is as inflexible as Sheol; its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD.” Song of Songs 8:6.
Love never fails. Love brings everything good with it. Love heals, love saves, love forgives, love prospers, love provides, love comforts, and love makes new. And that power is released for yourself and others in only one way. Confident, ringing, all conquering, undefeatable joy in what you have in you and who I am to you. Love gives you joy all the day. Why? Love has compassion that raises you up from the depths to the mountain heights.
Though the fig tree should not blossom and there be no fruit on the vines, though the yield of the olive should fail and the fields produce no food, though the flock should be cut off from the fold and there be no cattle in the stalls, yet I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation (Yeshuah). Adonai Yahweh is my strength, and He has made my feet like hinds’ feet,
And makes me walk on my high places. For the choir director, on my stringed instruments. Habakkuk 3:17-19.
And his rejoicing and exulting in Me, your provider, overcame and conquered the lack. How? It raised up new life to blossom forth with abundant fruit, the fruit of the Spirit, the fruit of your lips manifested in an abundant harvest of provision and praise. Resurrection joy employs resurrection power and that power is there to do a work. Love is resurrection power and that power is in you.
Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 1 Corinthians 3:16.
Resurrection joy is the spring of eternal life leaping up in you so that you never thirst again and there is so much overflow that those around you are hit with the living water too, like on Pentecost Sunday, they just could not keep it to themselves! And Jesus could not either.
At that very hour Jesus rejoiced greatly in the Holy Spirit, and said, “I praise You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. . Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight. All things have been handed over to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.” Luke 10:21-22.
Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. John 7:37-39.
Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2.
And what was the joy that lay before Him? RESURRECTION JOY! And that joy raised Him up to sit down with Me at My right hand.
And resurrection joy is your strength to raise you up out of every pit and every attack of the evil one. But it never raises you up in complaining and crying, begging and moping, only by showing faith, and faith is rejoicing at the victory I promise before you see it because you know if I said it you have it. Like Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah. 1 Chronicles 20.
Behold, I have given you authority [exousia (ἐξουσία): delegated empowerment, power to act, authority] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven.” Luke 10:19-20.
I have delegated empowerment to you by the Name of Jesus and My Spirit in you, and Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life, to tread on all evil, and that includes outer attacks and inner attacks of the devil and his demons (unclean spirits). But the rejoicing is in the resurrection, which is your relationship with Me through Christ that inscribes your name indelibly in the Lamb’s Scroll of Life, which is the Resurrection Roll Call of Heaven.
You who believe in the good news of your Salvation have your names recorded indelibly as written in His eternal blood that cannot be removed, washed away, erased, or forgotten, and I sealed you in Him by the Holy Spirit as a pledge of the redemption of not only your spirit and soul but of your body as well. I call your name. My gifts and My call are irrevocable. You who believe are on the Resurrection Roll Call. And you will be there, and so will everyone from the beginning to the end of time, but only those on the Resurrection roll call scroll come right in to the Kingdom on the red carpet so to speak as the overcomers, priority boarding, priority seating for there is a place reserved for you at the heavenly wedding banquet.
In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of your inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory. Ephesians 1:13-14.
Once I seal you in Christ, I have given Him command to lose nothing I have given Him and to raise you up on the Last Day. And that is resurrection joy, the surpassing greatness of My power flowing into you who believe in accordance with the working of the strength of My might which I brought about in Christ, when I raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in Heaven and you in and with Him even now.
When Jesus was present in His humanity upon the earth, walking among you as one like you but without sin, healing power was present, residing in Him by My Spirit. That is how the woman with the issue of blood for twelve years knew that if she just touched the tassels on His cloak she would be healed. And later it is how the people found out that Peter’s shadow falling upon them as he passed by and cloths touched to Paul would raise them up healed and whole. It was the anointing on your High Priest that flows upon you, for Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit and POWER. And what was that anointing and what was that POWER. I tell you quite clearly that I anointed Him with the oil of JOY and the power of the Holy Spirit, the power that cast out demons and raised Him from the dead. And now that same power is residing in you. Do you not perceive it? If not you will not partake in it. You will let all that power rest as if in the grave while all the time it is waiting to rise in you and be released from the tomb!
So what am I telling you to do? Let us say you wake up full of pain, disappointed with your life and those with whom you must live and care for, overwhelmed with work and tasks you must finish to fulfill your duties, what do you do? Give up? Cry? Hate the people you must serve? NEVER give in to that tactic of the devil for he is very busy loading you with negative thoughts and self-pity. It is time to laugh at him, double your praise, and begin rejoicing and releasing RESURRECTION POWER BY RESURRECTION JOY. And you do that by the great Hallelujah that fills your heart, your room, your world as you rejoice in the Holy Spirit and praise Me, just as Jesus did, that I have revealed Myself to you and have revealed My Son to you, and have raised you to My right hand even now. You rejoice in so great a Salvation that can never be taken from you! It is not your business to look so hard at others and at yourself, you are to follow ME in the paths of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Call out what is within you. Fro within you I have poured My Spirit and poured out the power of My love in Him, My healing power in Him, My provision power in Him, My deliverance in Him, and above all My resurrection power to put new life in your body and in everything and everyone around you. Know in whom you have believed and that I am well able to deliver you out of ALL that would harm you or bring you down, I deliver you OUT of the pit by putting a new song of praise in your mouth. No other way. You may sow in tears but you will only reap with JOY.
I waited, waited, for the LORD and He inclined to me and heard my cry. He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, and He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; many will see and fear and will trust in the LORD. Psalm 40:1-3.
I love you. It is time you woke up to who you are in Christ, into who I have made you, into what I have changed you, I have changed you from a sinner to a saint, from darkness into light. You used to be trapped in the miry pit of sin and death, but you are no longer there, you have been set free like a bird from the fowler’s snare, and all this is possible by the RESURRECTION POWER I PUT IN YOU, isn’t it time you flew? But it has to be a joy ride or you will never get off the ground. And the first step is stop the scowl and smile instead. Look up at Me and smile and your face will never be ashamed. It will catch My glow and you will be radiant. I always look for the shining face, for that is the one who is looking at Me with resurrection joy. Take your healing, your wholeness, your blessing, but take them all as you shout with Me for joy in the secret place. And always remember, I am your helper, you do not do this on your own. You do it with, in and through Me. I raised Jesus from the dead. He did not raise Himself. Selah. My Joy is your Strength. And I give it freely, just come to Me and you cannot help but have it in My presence.
“Hear, O LORD, and be gracious to me; O LORD, be my helper. You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness, That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever. Psalm 30:10-12.
I did it for you, but you must dance and sing it with Me or I am singing and rejoicing over you all alone. Zephaniah 3:17.
They are like children who sit in the market place and call to one another, and they say, ‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance.” Luke 7:32.
