We cannot twist truth to suit ourselves. The flesh. Growth in Christ bends us into submission to Christ our Lord. It hurts to grow. Many escape this direct path and turn away and stagnate. However long, is still by choice. Drink milk forever. Or feed yourself. Eat the meat of the Word. You do not want to camp at the salvation end of the cross like a migrant until you are an old man. When you fail to comply to God’s word and fall flat on your face, try and try again. Do not give up fighting the good fight of faith. Move forward and upward. Don’t be babies forever.
I have grown because I have studied the Word hard, daily. I’ve had intimate communion quiet time listening to the Lord daily. When it hurt most to do these things, I overcame my own flesh by doing nothing. There is a cost to growth. There is a cost to holiness. Give up the things of this world and only walk along the things of God’s holiness.
Though it be grace, it’s still a choice, we make. We choose.
Seek those who grow you and not keep you a baby forever. This is still by choice.
There are not buts in your heart. You know the truth by yourself. If you are still sitting where you’re at it is because you have chosen to be there. Chose life to the abundance in Christ Jesus so you are not found lacking in every spiritual gift of the grace of God through His love in His Son, Christ Jesus, our Lord, the Christ, Messiah. He purchased us with His life, His blood. Every good gift from the Lord is available to us.
Be empowered with the Holy Spirit, by fire, like Peter and Paul and do greater and mightier works that they did. Do not be slow in holding yourself back. Be of good courage as Jesus has overcome the world. So can we, at all times.
Be empowered by the Holy Spirit by fire. Do not be happy until you are. And be like the roaring lion, the Lion of Judah.
I was taught in my mid twenties, to take one wrong in my life and change it, change me, one at a time. Not all at once. It’s overwhelming. Just one by one. And I did it. At the feet of Jesus.
And then you get here and kiss the lips of Christ Jesus.
Do not fear. Jesus is a loving God. He truly is.
And we dance.
It’s been a wonderful journey of good choices.

When I was so ill with this cough I was smeared with the blood of the Lamb and all I could see was this huge thick pure bright white white white.
A Great Multitude from Every Nation
9 After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
13 Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?” 14 I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 “Therefore they are before the throne of God,
and serve him day and night in his temple;
and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore;
the sun shall not strike them,
nor any scorching heat.
17 For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd,
and he will guide them to springs of living water,
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
