Joined Together As One

What God hath JOINED together let no man put asunder. Joined means to fasten to MY Yoke – united together. Asunder means to divide and separate. Nothing shall be able to separate us from the Love of God and Christ IN us is that Power and Love that keeps us joined AS ONE!!

I’m Always- N- Joy because we all share in His Union being joined as one. Jesus’ prayer that they all may BE one, as the Father is in Me and they may be one in us.

Revelation 6:5 “A pair of balances” – Yoke in His Hands. His hands are Holy  without wrath and without doubt.

There Always -N-Joy and Peace when you simply believe!

Excerpts from my book Eyewitness to His Majesty – The Power of  His Resurrection © all copyrights reserved 2010

All Things Are Pure!

“To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure” (Titus 1:15).

I’ll bet you’ve already categorized “the pure” as referring to somebody other than yourself, haven’t you? I mean, to be considered “pure” seems to be reserved for the few who have achieved a higher standard of purity in their lives than say, you or I … wouldn’t you think?

But then again, by what means of evaluation do we determine such a thing? The High Priest is examining the spotless Lamb when we bring our offering, not the “list” I bring with it.
Hasn’t the good news of Jesus made it abundantly clear that those who have received the grace of God are the clean, the righteous, the justified, the sanctified, the holy, the pure … and the undefiled? So, dump that evaluation system by which you keep judging yourself unworthy.

Though there may be many questions begging to be asked I want to draw your attention to the simplicity of the statement, “To the pure, all things are pure”. What could this possibly mean? How could ALL things be pure in any sense? And if I am correct it says that all things are pure to YOU.

Notice that it does not say all things can be VIEWED as pure, but that all things ARE pure. I point this out because of our tendency to negate this reality as if it was merely theoretical and not factual. It is Truth and when is truth the truth? When I believe it or when God declared it? Have you had your eyes examined lately?

Examine yourselves to be sure you are bringing the “right and perfect” man into focus.  Do you still believe that you are standing perfect in His rest? “Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be unfit?” I trust that you know already that you are not unfit nor are you defiled because we are sure and steadfast in our FIT man.  2 Corinthians 5:13, 14 & Leviticus 16:21

“Mark the perfect man and His righteousness, because the END of that man is perfect peace.” Psalms 37:37

“Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the Word of Thy Righteousness. Thy Word is Pure – Christ was and is our FREE Gift of righteousness and His LIFE abundantly supplied.” Psalms 119:123 & 140

We grew up learning to view all things according to our particular society’s standard of measurement. In the Kingdom of Heaven His standard is Righteousness in which we plum-line every scripture to the Rock of Christ our Cornerstone. But are we looking up higher or are we looking after the things of this world? Our history has been written in Christ and we are turning back to take a second look at this wonderful and so great salvation brought about by ONE man – the Man Christ Jesus our Lord.

Always-N-Joy, Joanne

We Are One!

Did you know…We are One?

Let us begin by remembering we ARE ONE WITH GOD…IN Everlasting Holiness, Righteousness and Peace. Luke 1:75-79

James 1:5 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ASK of God, that gives to all liberally, and without reproach and it shall be given him.”

The Greek word for lack is to be left behind, to forsake, or to be wanting.

Oh how that sounds like Jesus telling His disciples I will never leave or forsake you. He never left us behind. He died so that He could make His abode IN US through the power of His Hope, which is Christ in us. The Kingdom of God is Righteousness, Peace, and Joy IN the Holy Ghost. You are safe and protection guaranteed in all you do. His power and strength are right now available to you in all of your undertakings. Jesus admonished His disciples to not be slow in heart to believe. Do not doubt His love for you, nor question His protection and care. No meaningless anxieties can come between our faith and our awareness of being ONE with Him and His presence. No miracle can be denied to those who KNOW and their EYES behold that they are ONE with His glorious, holy and sinless majesty. That is the power and wisdom of Christ IN YOU!

Hosea 4:6 reminds us that “God’s people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” The word for destroyed here means to be silenced. We are silenced from not being able to perceive, understand, and see with revelation that it clearly tells us Christ is the Power and the Wisdom of God IN US. “But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the Power of God, and the Wisdom of God. (1 Corinthians 1:24)

“But of Him are you IN Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto US wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption.” (1Corinthians 1:30) The Greek word for “made” is married, complete, and finished…IN a fixed position of rest.

When you have received a revelation of Christ IN YOU it gives you a strong voice to proclaim His majesty. Now to testify as an eyewitness to what you have seen and heard. Now if any of you lack wisdom, understanding, perception or discernment we are exhorted to ASK of GOD that gives to ALL liberally. Why, so that the eyes of our understanding can be enlightened to see HIM. His people are silenced from not asking. Ask and receive that your JOY may be FULL. It is a lie you believe if you feel unworthy or defiled in any way.

We share as a joint-heir the same LAMB in our house that is without fault, spot or blemish. Whose report will you believe? He will not leave you forsaken or left behind without a revelation of Himself as Christ our ALL in ALL.

Ask and receive that your joy may be FULL.

Always-N-Joy, Joanne
