That the man of God may BE perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. Furnished means Complete and Finished – Stability is not something you do but part of the “furnishing” in Christ — Oh the Beauty of His Holiness!!
He quieted the earth with the SOUTH wind.
The whole earth IS AT Rest, IS QUIET: they break forth into singing, gladness, and rejoicing because of JOY. Isaiah 14:7 The JOY of the Lord is that HE HAS rendered UNTO ALL men His Righteousness.
The 12 tribes of Israel are for our edification to know what we have inherited IN Christ by looking at their Names, Banners, Stones, Garments and placement around the Tabernacle at rest; plus so much more!
In the South is Reuben – EYES that see & behold the SON provided for my affliction – Simeon -has the EARS to hear with acceptance & Father is well pleased. Gad – is the overcoming troop that also says whose FORTUNE has come – rich toward God and in Mercy and the river/ stream of GOD that makes us glad —-
Oh yeah Always-N-Joy!! Job 37:17… Joanne
LAUGHTER is JOY flowing and a countenance glowing because of an attitude of trust, faith, hope, and love will find an expression –Manifestation in Delight!!
…Then I was beside Him, as a master workman; and I was daily His delight,
…But a just weight is His delight…But the blameless in their walk are His delight. Proverbs 11:1 & 20
… Those who prepare and make ready faithfully are His delight. Proverbs 12:22
… The prayer of the Righteous is His delight. Proverbs 15:8
Being able to laugh with God denotes JOY that is expressed because of our position AS ONE with Him. … And HATH raised us up together, and made us SIT together IN heavenly places IN Christ Jesus. This is a faith laughter that stems from deep rooted faith in the ROOT that is HOLY making the branches Holy too. This is the Victory joined as one spirit and en-grafted into Holiness now to bear fruit unto HIM!
To remember His holy covenant, the oath which He swore to Abraham our father, to grant us that we, being rescued from the hand of our enemies, might serve Him without fear IN Holiness and Righteousness before Him ALL our days; guiding our feet into the Way of Peace.” Luke 1:68-79
In MY Name Heal Them ALL!!!
The word healing means to restore, renew, remember – health, wholeness, and purity.
Jesus was anointed to preach the Good News of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and of our Christ. The Gospel of the Kingdom is Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Spirit of Holiness.
The Spirit of Holiness is who raised us up ALL from out of the grave to walk in this newness of His abundant life. Take up His BED which is undefiled and walk, live knowing He is THERE in you! Where He is -THERE is HOLY!!
Holiness IS what made us PURE in heart and in Life so that we can SEE the Kingdom and SEE the Goodness and Love of our Father which is in heaven.
Jesus removed every manner of sickness, disease and all the lies that would torment us by the very PRESENCE of Love and His Glory which is Christ in US.
Now for us to BE still and KNOW His Name which is Holy. All that Jesus did was to show us the Purpose and Passion with the Power provided by Our Father from the beginning.
… And on the 7th Day Father sanctified and made THAT DAY – PURE and HOLY and instructed us to Keep the Sabbath Holy!! This IS that!!
Sanctified means pure, holy, separated from sin and guilt.
Did you HEAR that? Can you SEE that? He forever separated us from sin and guilt never from HIM and His goodness, love, grace or mercies grip!!
He HAS COME and healed them ALL by shining the LIGHT of His Glory that has made us AS ONE new man to rise each morning IN His Name that is Hallowed and Wonderful! Oh Yes!! His 2nd coming REMEMBERED in HIS Holy creation!!
Loud and clear Holiness forever established to rise and BE HOLY and BE Healed in His Name!!!
Behold the Beauty He shares with you and with me this precious morning!
Always-N-Joy with peace for today’s journey, Joanne
Did you know you are the City of God? Emmanuel IN us with us!
The City of Righteousness is called the Faithful Believing City. Isaiah 1:26
The lesson we learn while we are here is Love. How to receive it, believe it, and to share it. Christ is the Righteousness of God and the Life of God Himself in us. The seed is Christ the Love of our Father.
Jesus who was, is and is to come – is the Word made flesh and dwelt among us. Showing us the Love of our Father and His prayer that we would know Him, the love and the fullness of His being AS ONE and all in all.
I love this saying, “Nevertheless -alwaysthemore, the more than enough.”
The children of Israel wandered in the wilderness because they did not believe and call it today.
Hebrews 4:3 “We enter into rest when we believe.”
Romans 15:13 “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Spirit of Holiness.”
* Jacob’s heart “fainted” because he did NOT believe.
* Abraham believed and it was counted to him as righteousness.
* Their countenance was cast down when they did NOT believe.
* When they believed they sang praise.
What are you believing? What you believe you repeat – What are you reporting?
Now to just believe and receive JOY unspeakable and full of Christ-Glory. The word unspeakable means IN a COMPLETION that is indescribable.
The sound of joy and rejoicing is heard in the cities and tents of the righteous and they are satisfied with His fruit unto life everlasting.
He shall reward every man according to HIS Works not ours!!
Now that is Mercy and Grace all over our days and nights!
Always-N-Joy with peace for the journey, Joanne
In Genesis – He said, “By MYSELF have I sworn these things.
As we have received the Mercy of God it says that we faint not. The Covenant of Mercy is in place for God’s sovereignty to rule and reign in truth.
“And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we will reap since we faint not.” Galatians 6:9
This word “NOT’ added after “we faint not” – is there because it is an adverb of negation meaning No – Not – Never will we faint. Why, because He has promised He will do all these things Himself and working together for the good of all in His Love. He will manifest His promise of Christ in each and every man. He will not – no – never fail not one word will fall void but every word producing fruit unto eternal life.
This word “in well” doing means beautiful by reason of purity of heart and life, handsome, excellent, eminent, choice, precious, useful, suitable, commendable, admirable, noble, AS ONE ought to be.
Let me remind you we looked at this word “goodness” of God and goodness means to be righteous, upright in heart and life. It was Jesus’ job, purpose and reason for being sent. He completed it and we reap the benefits. This is unconditional love in eternal motion 24/7/forever!
When I turn, to taste and see then my mouth gives thanks and praise unto the King of Glory! What we believe is what we repeat. There is joy and peace when we believe the truth.
Christ IN us IS already all things we will ever need & everything that pleases the Father perfectly for perfect peace to reign within us. We can resist and refuse to be comforted but His Love is still ruling and reigning. We are ONE and He cannot deny Himself.
Now being Restored-Renewed-Refreshed by the Power and Presence of God IN me I AM healed, delivered and rich. He is my good treasure in this earthen vessel – CHRIST is the Power, Presence, Portion, Purpose & Provision for all I AM today.
Now well able to rest and have my being in Joy and Peace.
Always-N-joy because what He started … He finished!
… and for all of us in this beautiful morning! Joanne
Are you wondering where or when you will really rest?
Walking today in the mall after work – I stopped to look into one of the store windows and over heard voices talking about being tired of all the responsibilities that came with getting married.
He said, “I’m tired of being the one to give and to share, wondering if anyone really cares. This rat race has become to much to bear and just a little cooperation would be nice. Where can we stop tonight for something to help me get some much needed rest?”
Do you know where to rest your heart and your head? Is the burden more than you can sometimes bear?
I think we have heard more than enough times what Jesus has to say. “Come unto Me, all that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest for your souls”
But do we know what He was talking about when He stated, “Take My Yoke upon You?”
His yoke is being joined together AS ONE Spirit. He has reminded the disciples the Spirit of Glory and of God has rested upon you as Father placed Him on Me. There is a river that flows refreshing you from the very Presence of the Lord.
We can see this truth in Matthew 19:6 … What God HATH JOINED together let NO MAN put asunder. The word JOINED here means to Fasten to MY YOKE – united & joined together – Being joined to the Lord IN ONE Spirit is HIS YOKE that is easy & light!! Mark 10:9
Turning towards Him and leaning into what He has placed inside of us on purpose is Christ the anointing and the Holy Presence of our Father. Where ever He is there it is Holy.
Right there IN Christ He has you in a fixed position of rest. Ask Him tonight to help you relax and be refreshed as you go to sleep knowing He is there. The blessing is sure and ours for the asking with joy and peace promised when we believe.
Always-N-Joy with Love still amazing, Joanne
What kind of adventure are you living?
What kind of life are you hoping for?
The treasure hunt that our Heavenly Father has placed here on purpose for us brings joy and peace when we seek to find Him. The LIFE is Christ and the tokens also called signs are like stones of remembrance or trail markers. The joy is finding these pointers that have been set in the WAY and the TRUTH all aglow showing us the Father and His Love. Love notes all over our days and nights.
I know in the natural I have left plenty of love notes in lunches packed, on sidewalks written with chalk, and even put love notes on letters mailed out for every mailman to remember WHO they are.
One day it hit me — if my heart is so overflowing with Love to put out visible signs for the ones I love, so they can remember – it was a DUH moment with smiles. My Father in heaven, invisible to my natural eyes must have a “visible token” for me to find too!
That day – I squealed, “let the bragging of God’s adventure begin.” Then I started looking for love He placed on purpose for me. Remember, they are there for you too!!
You choose what you gather each day. Whatever you focus on you are sure to find it. What have you been looking for? Or should I ask, what are you expecting to find? The harvest is Christ and fruit always unto eternal life. If you focus on the wrong man instead of marking the perfect man (Psalms 37:37) you gather in vain.
When I travel and minister talking to others they tell me: I’m stressed out, stretched to their limits, working to hard, scared about the future, out of balance, can’t trust anyone these days, leaning into chaos and wishing for more well being, ease, lightness, fun, peace and grace in their lives.
I am looking for Righteousness, Peace and Joy. My King who is Holy, Righteous, Loving, my Faithful Witness, Glorious, Tenderhearted, Merciful, and full of Goodness. That’s just a small portion of what I have found all over this trail. He silenced the false witness and liar by setting the presence of Himself within us.
I took a second look at the Cross and found the Light shining like pieces of silver and gold rocks along the path I am on, for the renown of His Holy Name.
He put forth His Hand upon the ROCK of Christ and He overturns every mountain for me and you, by the ROOTS of His Holiness. They all did drink the same spiritual drink because they drank from that same spiritual Rock which followed them all of their days. That Rock today is still called Christ.
It’s always been this unconditional LOVE is FOR YOU!! Yes, finding His Peace that matters! Always-N-Joy!! Joanne
© Book excerpt from Volume 2 ~ Eyewitness to His Majesty … The Power of the Resurrection
This is the day for us to follow our hearts knowing we are gonna make it! How? By knowing we remain as one through His faithfulness. Oh yes, with His amazing love and it will still be “daily” resting in this moment that is holy!
The root is what puts the fruit on the tree. Our roots BE HOLY and the branches BE holy too. But without knowledge of the ROOT – we can do nothing. Christ IN us is the Root that BE HOLY.
That is why we receive with meekness the engrafted WORD which is well able to save our souls. James 1:21 By His death He reconciled us & by His life we are saved. Romans 5:10 …the finished works of ONE man. There is joy and peace when we believe. Sealed with a Holy kiss and the Covenant of His Mercy which keeps His love unconditional.
Jesus saved the world – we were never instructed to go save the world – but when we are converted GO strengthen your brothers. Love and feed them because Love is moving and having His being IN us all. Luke 22:32 … Fathers have known Him from the beginning. Even the Good News in the Gospels begin each book with they are going to show and explain the Gospel from the beginning. Convert the sinner in James 5 means to bring one back to Love, Wisdom, and Righteousness. Christ is the Love, Wisdom, Power and Righteousness of God. Even Leviticus 19:15 was instructing the priesthood to “Judge your neighbor in Christ.”
Still the One man plan because of the Lamb. In one all died and in one all have been made alive. The sovereign reign of God our Father has prepared us for peaceful living in rest that is full of JOY. God our Father even sealed it with a Covenant of Oath and His noble blood and said, I will even remember FOR THEM. What a mighty God we serve!
Father’s have known Him from the beginning … Praise God for Our Savior born in the manger to show us the way. To be that visible expression of an invisible truth, His Royal Mandate unmovable and cannot by nullified. Confirming and proving nothing can separate us from the Love and Life of God.
Merry Christmas and a Silent Night because of His Holy Gift within us, His Delight!! Always-N-Joy ~ Joanne
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!
