Now is the Time for the Paradigm Shift Back to the proper mind-set
Rip off the “roof” of all the religious traditions, political posturings, social taboos, and generational deceits and lies. Let nothing interfere with receiving what is your real inheritance in Christ Jesus.
Like the four friends who broke up the ground, removing the dirt and impurities of all, man-made, man-ufactured “roofs” blocking vision of the open heaven.
Confidently and boldly in humble trust bring the paradigm-“paralyzed“ friend out from all man’s limitations to the Lord of Life, the Prince of Peace.
Come unafraid, unashamed and prove to all your total reliance of The Way, The Truth and The Life. Show them all, hide not that gift of faith that He’s placed inside of your heart, let them see what God can do!
In the sight of them all: the legal “homeowner” whose “roof” you’ve just removed –
Mark 3:27, “No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.”
To the skeptical rulers and scoffing of the worldly “religious” and the desirous needy masses of “fleshly” reasoning boundaries…
Seek more than to touch any experience of this moment, leave behind all empty promises and live beyond the moment in the light of His Everlasting Life.
Leave off the “feel goods” – Seek His Righteousness!
Go beyond seeking your own blessing at His hands…
Lay it all down as did these four faith-full friends for the sake of the One and the one He loved, the paradigm-“paralyzed” friend.
These are the ones that KNOW HIM – He is their Prince of Peace and Lord of Life!
To their persevering, faithful trust and love, He gives a commendation before all.
Then He speaks directly to the heart of the “paralytic” – immediately
forgiving sin, restoring him to peace with God.
As Lord, he knows the hearts of all men including those who are indignant and offended at His removal of this man’s sins.
As Yahshua (the original Hebrew name for the Greek name “Jesus”),
The Name that means “Yahweh (Almighty God) is Salvation”, He demonstrates not only His commission as the Son of God but as God the Son removes sin, restoring man to God the Father and healing The Body.
Not only that!
He then commissions this man who is forgiven, healed and restored man, SENT OUTin full possession of what formerly held him back!
His “mat” that he was relying, lying upon now a Word of Testimony!
In Luke 18 a certain ruler asked Yahshua what he must do to inherit eternal life YET was not willing to be parted with what stood in the way. His foolish heart clinging to what had him bound, a prisoner. Only by following hard after the One with single-heartted devotion could he truly inherit Life. What he “thought” was his was actually owning and hindering him from the Truth.
Let go of all that is holding you back from receiving the most precious treasure in all heaven and earth! Everything that the eye can see and hand touch is passing away and the Reality is only found in the One True Love.
This “world” and its ways, its thoughts are not even ours except by the “power of association.” And one submits to its “rule and lordship” over their heart, they bow the knee giving dominion to the kingdom of Satan.
This is the “lot” of all unconverted men, of every rank, party, and character.
They have no inheritance in the Lord of Everlasting Life.
Worse still, their cruel task-master has stirred them up to oppose the cause of the Almighty One.
The Truth of God’s Salvation (Yahshua) is against man’s ambitions and worldly lusts. Ever-accusing they label His “called-out” ones, “hostile” but the Truth of God’s Salvation (Yahshua) says…
they are the antagonists yet His Love prevails.
His arm is not shortened, it reaches to the uttermost seeking and saving the lost lamb.
Their opposition, a willful attempt to “kill” conscience, trying to sever the “ties that bind” perfect love and obedience through the Word of God.
Just as the shepherd-boy with the perfect heart of faith…
1 Samuel 17:29, “And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?“
What possibly can result from opposition to True holiness and justice?
1 Samuel 17:45-47 –
“Then said David to the Philistine, you come to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.
This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saves not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’S, and he will give you into our hands.”
Return to the Beginning before the End!
He is Alpha and Omega; speaking The End from The Beginning.
His Kingdom comes and all that opposes will fail.
Why struggle? What senseless, useless waste of time and energy!
Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Isaiah 44:6
Nothing is “loss” for the “gain” of this Kingdom.
In Luke 18, Peter said, they had left all AND followed Him. To which, Jesus said:
“Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake, Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.”
Lock eyes with the One True Love, take hold of the Creator’s Eternal Perspective worship in spirit and in truth a pure reflection, Alive to that Light of Life!
Follow His example – don’t worry what others think of you – never lose focus of
Who He is and Whose you are.
It only matters what the Father thinks.
Today a call goes out from the heart of the Father,
“Who will leave all and follow My Son’s example?”
I pray for a mind-set on the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Focus on the One that sees and knows you, taking hold of Him as He has already taken a hold of you.
Father lead them out of dis-order into Your order. Let each one be ever mind-full
of how they might have been left in darkness and how now they are being led by Your Light.
Help us focus completely on Your upward call. AMEN
