I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:5.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלוהים) says:
Since Adam fell and hid from Me in fear due to his sin, his descendants have a spirit of fear. And until you take back your dominion over the devil you will be subject to fear your whole life long.
Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. For assuredly He does not give help to angels, but He gives help to the descendant of Abraham. Hebrews 2:14-16.
You will not understand the impact of what I am saying until you read on in this Life Lesson. But if you understand this, your whole manner of thinking and speaking should change.
Death entered the world through Adam the moment he believed the devil’s lying words over My Words of truth and partook of the produce of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned. Romans 5:12.
He had cut off from his source and he effectively cut off all his descendants as well. How?
Adam was made by My Word and came out of Me. You cannot separate yourself from your source and live. When I made the plants, I spoke to the earth and plants came forth. Pulled up from the earth, they die. When I made the fish, I spoke to the sea. A fish out of the sea dies. When I made you, I spoke to Myself. You must remain in Me or you will die the double death, physical and spiritual. But there is more, there is a medium in which I made you that is Me and of Me, and that is My Word, You were made from in Me by My Word, you were originally created a son of God.
When He began His ministry, Jesus Himself was about thirty years of age, being, as was supposed, the son of Joseph . . . the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalaleel, the son of Cainan, the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God. Luke 3:23, 36-38.
To live and bear fruit without toil you must remain in My Word and My Word remain in you.
When Adam submitted to the devil by submitting to his lies and abiding in them, he got out of abiding in My Word, which is Spirit and life, and could no longer walk in the spirit but walked in the flesh, and his life became one of toil and sweat, but more about this in a moment.
Born again of the corruptible seed of lying words, Adam had taken a new father. Jesus explained this to you in the context of hearing and understanding My Word.
“Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My Word. You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me.” John 8:43-45.
Adam put himself under the jurisdiction of the devil and was born again therein. Just as he had been created My child, he was born again by the words of the devil as the devil’s child. And just as he had been a partaker of the divine nature, he became a partaker of the devil’s nature. And fear is of the devil’s nature. Have you never read:
You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. James 2:19.
That is one reason that if you submit to My Word and resist the devil, he must flee in terror from you. I am My Word, even in your mouth spoken with faith it has the impact of My voice.
Bless the LORD, you His angels, mighty in strength, who perform His Word, obeying the voice of His word! Psalm 103:20.
Remember the devil is an angelic being though fallen. And Adam was of the divine nature but had gone with the devil and fallen. And all those born of Adam’s seed were subject to the same line of descent.
Adam had transferred from the realm of light to the realm of darkness. But more than that, he went from the dimension of the spirit to the dimension of the flesh. And the flesh has its mind set on death. In the dimension of the spirit all Adam needed was generated from within his spirit in the dominion authority I had given him over the earth and then cultivated and gathered by his hands. But once he surrendered his authority to the devil by believing in the corruptible and perishable seed of the devil’s lies, he had to toil in the flesh to till the ground and produce. With his spirit dead to Me and alive to sin he became flesh bound in the third dimension.
Cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you; and you will eat the plants of the field; by the sweat of your face you will eat bread, till you return to the ground, because from it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Genesis 3:17-19.
The devil holds you in the flesh arena to control you so that you cannot produce from the spirit, for if you get into the spirit, then nothing can stop you from taking your dominion back, which he took by fraud and misrepresentation. He must keep you toiling in the flesh so that you are trapped in that arena for sustenance and increase.
But the good news is you can be born again by My Word of truth to be a child of Mine and walk again in the spirit and not in the flesh.
For you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God. 1 Peter 1:23.
You overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb and by the Word of your testimony, that is, My Word in your mouth. In the flesh it is impossible to please Me, for without faith it is impossible to please Me and faith does not live in your flesh but in your spirit. You do not believe in your flesh but in your heart.
In Jesus, I reverse the curse for you. By the blood of the Lamb and My Word of truth you are sanctified and reconciled to Me and born back to your true source so that you again have the eternal life you lost. You spirit is resurrected to be alive to Me and dead to sin.
First, it takes the blood to redeem you from the sin of the murder of the eternal life I gave you by Adam and Eve who joined the devil as murderers of that life, whereby justice had to be satisfied by the blood of an eternal life in the flesh, a life for a life, which only Jesus born of My Word as the second Adam had to give. Second, by submitting to My Word of truth your spirit is born again with Me as your Father. Transferred to My jurisdiction out of the realm of darkness into My own marvelous light, again partakers of My divine nature by the magnificent promises in My Word that are “yes” to you in Jesus.
But even before Jesus gave His eternal blood for your eternal life lost, I made the way for mankind to take dominion of the earth back and produce without toil from the Spirit realm by the blood of the sacrificial offerings and the giving of My Word. I did this by the sacrifices of clean animals, such as of the unblemished lamb, by the giving of the Law through Moses beginning with the Passover lamb, the five sacrifices found in the book of Leviticus, and giving the plans and skill to carry them out for the tabernacle to carry these out daily so I could dwell among them as My special treasure under the blood. The sacrifice of clean animals, such as the unblemished lamb, did not start with Moses but as early as Adam and Eve and then Abel, and later I gave Abraham the burnt offering. And the sacrifices were there to cover the sins, but I also gave them My Word, first My spoken Word to Abraham, which produced a household of faith that lived above the curse in the blessing of Abraham (righteousness by faith), and then by My written Word to Moses which produced a nation of faith under the blessing of Abraham as My covenant people.
This enabled My people, primarily the prophets who had hearts that delighted in My Word and devoured it, to operate on a different level than the flesh. Think of Moses and the manna coming down from Heaven on the dewfall of a substance not known on earth. It originated in the Spirit realm and then was gathered by their hands in the flesh, as was the original plan for producing in the earth. And think of Elijah and the multiplication of the flour and oil in the widow’s jar. He did not go out and toil in the soil for that. Where did the flour and oil come from? Like the manna, from the spirit realm of My Word, My Words are Spirit and life.
And think of the widow of the prophet who came to Elisha for help with her husband’s debt. Elisha did not go out and toil to produce the amount that would pay the debt. He brought it out in the spirit realm until she had so much oil that she could sell it, pay off all her husband’s debts, and have plenty to live on for her and her sons.
And then fast forward to Jesus telling Peter to cast his nets into the sea for a catch even though there had been no fish all night in the lake. What happened? The fish that swarmed into his net nearly sank his boat and filled the boat of his partners. And think also of the water made wine, the finest wine, and a hundred and sixty gallons of it. Where did it come from? Not the physical realm of the flesh.
All these miracles of the old and new Covenant came from the Spirit realm by My Word in their mouths and My Spirit on them. But now you have more, My Word and My Spirit, and under the New Covenant, My Spirit is not only on but in you. And the blood of the true Lamb who takes away the sins of the world of which the prior sacrifices were only a shadow of the substance of Christ, a credit card payment so to speak, has paid your debt to Me in full once for all.
If you want to be strong and courageous, you have to change your diet. The food of courage is My Word. Your spirit needs Spirit food to thrive.
But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4
My prophet Isaiah told Ahaz, the king of Judah, that if his faith was not strong, he would not be strong, that is, unless he believed he would not be established. Isaiah 7:9.
How do you get faith? Faith comes from hearing and hearing My Word until it becomes your operating system. And once you get in the faith realm you are no longer just in 3D but 4D and it is there that things are produced by your spirit.
So what is the bread of champions? My Word. The food of courage is My Word. The Bread of Life. But more on this in our next Life Lesson.
I want you operating without toil in the spirit realm, that is, in the blessing.
It is the blessing of the LORD that makes rich, And He adds no painful toil to it. Proverbs 10:22.
Stop trying to originate things by your outer self, that is, the flesh by toil. Do not get trapped there all your life never increasing at the rate that I desire and have provided for your life. I give you the POWER to gain wealth to confirm My Covenant.
But you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. Deuteronomy 8:18.
I love you. I am glorified in you bearing MUCH fruit and fruit that endures. Produce from your spirit with My Spirit in you the fruit that endures and then gather it with your hands.
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. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. John 15:8-11.
