Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. Ephesians 5:25-27.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

To be walking in the Spirit, that is, to live, move, and breathe the pure air of Heaven and hear from on High in the secret place of your spirit, you must be holy.

As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:14-15.

Just as  nothing profane, unclean, and impure could enter the inner court of the Holy Place and then enter even deeper into My very heart in the Holy of holies in the tabernacle of Moses, so also in the spiritual realm you cannot. Just as in the tabernacle of Moses, which is based on heavenly realities, the bronze altar where the unblemished lamb was offered and its blood shed to atone for sins preceded the washing with pure water in the bronze laver before one could enter into the inner court of the Holy Place of the meeting tent of the tabernacle.

By His blood shed once for all on the cross, Jesus has opened a new a living way for you into not only the inner court of the Holy Place, but then on into the very Holy of holies, to My throne of grace, that only the High Priest alone could enter of old. But now, in Christ Jesus, you can enter in confidence because He, the High Priest of your confession (in the original Greek that is the word “homologia,” which means you are speaking in total agreement from your heart the same Words He is saying. And He only says My Words for He is My Word.) is ushering you in, clothed in Him as in a cloud of glory.

But I want you to notice something about that entrance to My throne:

Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:19-23.

So how do you come to My throne and live there, seated with Christ in heavenly places, and come into full maturity as an overcomer, more than a conqueror, and one whom I can entrust, equip, empower and prosper in the good works I prepared in advance for you to walk in?

I have to make you holy like Me.

And this can only be fully accomplished through the blood, the water (the Word), and the Holy Spirit, that is, the Spirit of Holiness, by whom I raised Christ up from the dead to seat Him with Me in Heaven. And all of these only come to you through Jesus alone.

Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who reside as aliens, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, who are chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with His blood: May grace and peace be yours in the fullest measure. 1 Peter 1:1-2.

So Moses took the blood and sprinkled it on the people, and said, “Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD has made with you in accordance with all these Words.” Exodus 24:8.

Sprinkled in the shed blood of your peace offering, sin offering burnt offering, and guilt offering (all of which are fulfilled by the one sacrifice of Jesus for you), you are released from sin and an evil conscience, made into a holy priesthood and a consecrated people set apart, and then you enter into covenant by My Word.

But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation; and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled sanctify for the cleansing of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? Hebrews 9:11-14.

So if you are freed from dead works by the blood of Jesus, and get a new born again conscience, how do you serve Me? In other words, how do you do My works? How do you become holy and pure like Me so that you reign in life through Christ Jesus?

Therefore they said to Him, “What shall we do, so that we may work the works of God?”Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” John 6:28-29.

Who is the one I sent that you may believe in Him?

This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. John 17:3.

Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me. John 8:42.

And Jesus cried out and said, “He who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me. John 12:44.

For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:17.

So Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” John 20:21.

And who is Jesus?

There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.  And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:9-14.

I sent My Word to heal you and deliver you from all your destructions. Psalm 107:20. Jesus is the Word I sent, He is My Word made flesh among you, giving His body for you in covenant, so that your body becomes one with His body and you become My Word made flesh dwelling as a light in the midst of a dark world in a famine for My Word.

Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:13.

So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, holding fast the Word of life. Philippians 2:12-16.

Hold fast to My Word. And how do you do that? By letting it work in you and out of you. You have to let My Word do its work, its marvelous work, in you to clean your vessel for great works that the Word, which is living and actively working, is there to do in you and through you.

This means to follow the lesson for victory and prosperity that I gave to Joshua just before he went in to take possession of the land I had given them by Covenant with Abraham.

This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. Joshua 1:8.

Joshua did that and he lived one of the most successful, fruitful, wonderful, blessed lives ever lived and led an entire nation to victory at past eighty years old until he was one hundred and ten years. My Word renewed his youth. Psalm 103:5.

Jesus told you that hearing My Word will purify and clean you of all that makes you unfruitful and brings darkness into your life, for His Word is a light to your path and a lamp to your feet. He is the Light of the World, and He is the Word!

You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you . . . If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.  John 15:3, 7-9.

My Word is pure, enlightening the eye. Psalm 19:8, and when your eyes are enlightened (revelation light for the eyes of your heart) your whole body is filled with light.

The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness. Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of light, with no dark part in it, it will be wholly illumined, as when the lamp illumines you with its rays.” Luke 11:34-36.

My Word is living and actively at work, sharper than a two edged sword. Hebrews 4:12. Put the Word to work in your life by speaking the same Words as Jesus, the High Priest of your confession (this is the word “homologia” in the Greek language it was originally written in, which means saying the same words in perfect agreement), Hebrews 3:1, so that in His Name you can do the works He did and greater for they were all done byMys Word, which does the works, and the power of the Holy Spirit, who has, since the beginning hovered waiting for God to breathe forth His Word and turn it into a physical realty.

So will My Word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11.

Nevertheless what you have, HOLD FAST until I come. He who overcomes, and he who keeps My WORKS until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the potter are broken to pieces, as I also have received authority from My Father; and I will give him the morning star. Revelation 2:25-28.

And do remember what Jesus’ answer was when the people who had experienced the miracle of the multiplication of the bread and fish asked Jesus what to do to work the works of God? The answer was that to do My works you had to believe in the one whom I sent, who is Jesus Christ. But if to do the works of God is to believe in the One He sent, then what does Jesus tell you those who believe in Him do?

Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. John 14:12-14.

What are the works He does and greater? You see it in His Name. You call Him “Jesus,” but in the Hebrew language in which I named Him to Joseph and Mary the wondrous child, who is One God with Me and the exact image of Me, is “Yeshuah,” which simply means “Salvation.” And that is the most beautiful, powerful, and precious gift in any situation, trial, joy, temptation, suffering, for salvation includes deliverance, protection, direction, provision, healing, prosperity, success, and rescue! Salvation in every area of your life, especially that death and the grave will never hold you down,  you will be absent from your earthly vessel and present with Me to be clothed again in the glory, beauty and majesty I gave to you before the foundation of the world when I promised you eternal life.

And when you sinned, rejected, and lost your glory for the realm of darkness, and the lies of the devil, I gave it all back to us in Jesus, to those who will do My works by believing in the One I sent! The greatest work of all: Your salvation.

And though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:8-9.

And Jesus told you who believe in Him the day He was raised from the dead by Me, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” John 20:21.

And He gave you His Name by which to do His works, the works of the Word, healing and deliverance for all! For it is My desire  that all people be saved and come to know the truth.

And what is the truth? My Word is truth, absolute, perfect, unfailing, uncompromising,  all conquering, all gaining, truth. And the truth will set you free of all darkness, depression, fear, sickness, pain, poverty, and a wasted, empty life. John 8:31-32.

Nevertheless what you have, HOLD FAST until I come. He who overcomes, and he who keeps My WORKS until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the potter are broken to pieces, as I also have received authority from My Father; and I will give him the morning star. Revelation 2:25-28.

If Jesus is giving you the morning star for holding fast to My Word and thus keeping My works, who is the morning star?

“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.” Revelation 22:16.

Jesus of course. And He is coming with a great reward to render to each and every one as their work is. Revelation 22:12.

For we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. 2 Peter 1:19-21.

The gift I give you in Jesus is eternal life, I gave you Jesus so that when you believe in Him you will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16.

These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life. 1 John 5:13.

But you won’t become pure as I am pure if you leave the darkness in you when you come to the light. You  must be purified by My Word. You must be sanctified in truth to get rid of the evil that has come into your soul by the lies and deceit of the devil. You must be set free of every encumbrance of sin and all the things that weigh you down and lock you in unholiness that you hate but seem unable to overcome. You must receive My Word implanted in you heart  which is able to save your souls, i.e., sanctify you and make you holy through and through. Let My Word pull every evil and impure thing out of you, every bit of that darkness that holds you back from fully participating in My life, eternal life, in the Spirit even now.

By My Words, you learn what I have given you, who you are, who I am, My ways and works, and how you work My Words and walk in My ways to rule and reign in life with Me through Christ Jesus. And you can only walk this out and do the works of Jesus and greater by My Spirit dwelling in your born again spirit as your helper, teacher, guide, leader, and advocate, and My Spirit upon you, clothing you in power from on High.

And you find more insight in the first letter of My beloved disciple John:

Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure . . . Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:2, 7-8.

I tell you to purify yourselves as He is pure. How do we do that?

Just as Jesus did for you, He made you clean, purged out the evil and all that held you back from being fruitful by the Word He spoke to you. And that is also how He cares for, sanctifies and washes clean His body the Church.

Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. Ephesians 5:25-27.

Because of what Adam did by sinning and corrupting the seed of which you are formed in the flesh so that death and darkness entered the world, and man’s thoughts were corrupted as well. Since Adam exchanged My Words of truth for a lie of empowerment, My thoughts are higher than your thoughts and My ways than your ways, but that is not the end of the matter, though at first it seemed to be.

Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. Genesis 6:5-6.

And that could have ended our relationship right there forever. But I found a man who was willing to listen and obey, who drew close to Me so I could draw close to him and give him My thoughts and My ways and would walk in agreement with Me and become holy.

“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool. If you are willing and obey, you will eat the best of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” Truly, the mouth of the LORD has spoken. Isaiah 1:18-20.

His name was Noah and he found favor with Me. And My Word tells you why, “Noah walked with God.” And just as I told Abraham, when you walk in My light you become blameless.  Genesis 17:1. And I tell you that about Noah as well.”Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time.” He was faithful to walk with Me in the light that he had and My Word went to work in him to do the rest.

You will find the same situation that My apostle Paul recognized before I revealed the fullness of My Word to him, which showed him the solution to the evil in him. When you find evil in yourself you are often so ashamed and so discouraged by it that you do not realize there is a solution that will pull all that right out of you and pour in pure water until all of that evil is gone out of you even in this life.

I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good. For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man,  but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members.  Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin. Romans 7:21-25.

Just like the answer to the snake bites the people suffered in the wilderness when they began to crumble and complain about the manna and their time with Me in the desert was beholding the bronze serpent on the pole, so your answer to all the evil in you is your beholding Jesus.

Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life. John 3:14-15.

For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.” John 6:40.

And in beholding Jesus, you are beholding My Word made flesh. Keep your eyes on Jesus also could just as correctly be stated “Keep your eyes on My Word.” Which is just what Moses instructed the Israelites I redeemed out of Egypt, i.e., that they keep the Word constantly before their eyes and in their mouths.

The only way to take all evil and malice out of you is the Word, first its pure milk, then its meat, and then its honey. The more of My Word you pour in, the more evil you push out. The more light you open you heart to the more darkness you drive out.

For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe. 1 Thessalonians 2:13.

Your answer to getting out all that encumbers and hinders you from the fullness of the revelation that you so desire to live in is in My Word in your heart and in your mouth. For My Words are spirit and life and they are everlasting life. Let them do a work in you. For My Word cannot be released with faith without going to work.

The Words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves. Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. John 14:10-17.

I love you. Do not get so upset when you find a law contrary to My law of liberty in your flesh. It is the law of sin and death, but I have redeemed you from that by the blood of My Son and there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. And you can purify yourself by the washing with water by the Word. Come all who are thirsty and drink, drink, drink of the living water that will wash out all that is impure in you. Not a struggle just an overflow of goodness. My people will be filled to overflowing with My goodness. And that is My Word. I am My Word and, as Jesus witnessed to you I alone am good. If you are willing and obey you will eat the good of the land.
