SEALED WITH A KISS …

Christ in us IS the Love of God –

Daily we are His delight! In the Garden of Eden is our heavenly Father and He is making His presence known to us. We are His garden of delight. Eden means His Delight! It’s time to stop hiding and rest abiding in His gracious love and goodness.

Relationship means to be connected by blood, birth, accord, kinship or marriage. His blood is His nature, the Spirit of Holiness and we are training our senses to discern His presence and our connection AS ONE joined together with our Father from the beginning. The Power of the Resurrection raised us all in ONE accord!!

The Cross of Jesus Christ and His death, burial and resurrection made it all possible for us to rest, sealed with the Kiss of Righteousness and Peace.  After seeing with understanding the Lamb of God, slain before the foundation of the world; Father placed the Covenant of Mercy and Goodness to be enforced eternally.

The word abiding means to continue and remain united, joined to Him as a branch does a vine. Abiding is something HE DID for us – I simply remain there recovering or should I say uncovering and discovering my true identity.

NOW that is unconditional love sealed with a Kiss of Righteousness and Peace; with His Mercy and Goodness following us all of our days!! Goodness means righteous in heart and in life. Where you treasure IS – THERE your heart will be also. Christ is my righteous treasure and my heart is there IN His perfect holiness to beat to the rhythm of His Love.

Always-N-Joy with a Merry Kissmas!!! Joanne

God of Miracles!

God of Miracles

There was never just A “day of miracles” but there IS our “GOD of Miracles” -… His Name Wonderful means FULL of Miracles. — they limited the Holy One of Israel – by not agreeing they were HOLY and CLEAN. Like lepers they said “unclean, sinful, poor, broke and forgetful. Wisdom from the beginning is first Pure -and pure is holy and without sin. Consider your source, “IN the Vine” which is Holiness — the FREE Gift of Christ the Spirit of Holiness and Righteousness as ONE joined IN Him all of our days.

Our view from the Mercy Seat hearing Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty. Jesus said, “YOU are CLEAN because of the Word I have spoken over you.” Be Holy and Be Perfect as your Father in heaven IS Holy and Perfect. We were made in His image and it is His works and Covenants in place to secure and establish forever that which concerns us.

The Levitical High Priest was instructed “if sin comes into a man’s understanding bring that one back to love, wisdom, and righteousness.” …”they were also instructed to judge your neighbor in Christ/Righteousness and do not lay sin upon your neighbor.” Leviticus 19:15-17

The Spirit of Holiness is the Spirit that raised us UP with Christ out of any grave report, of sin, sickness, poverty or death. 

Also seen as the FREE gift of Righteousness not just a ticket to heaven but a our entrance and door to an abundant life IN Christ.

Luke said after much investigation he was going to proclaim the Good News of the Gospel from the Beginning. Father’s have known Him from the beginning; in a fixed position of rest in perfect Righteousness and Holiness innocent before Him all the days of our lives. … Now His Holy Temple.

Yet I had planted thee a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how then art thou turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto Me? How then art thou turned? Have you fallen from grace and turned from the light and “think” you see properly? NO you are not degenerate – that would be blind seeing shadows and our eyes need to turn back around to the Light and behold the beauty of His Majesty. Face to Face, Nature to nature, Countenance to countenance we are entwined in truth and grace, with Love abounding and Joy seen on His Face.

If I look FULL into the Sun my shadow is behind me. Jesus came opening blind eyes and deaf ears so we could SEE and HEAR the eternal, invisible Truth with the single eye of His Spirit. HE is the Truth. He cleansed the Lepers so they could say I AM CLEAN and He raised the dead by the power of the Resurrection to SEE the walkway in Holiness with Him all of our days… When the Lamb was slain!! When was the Lamb slain? Before the foundation of the world.

Only one Word – One RX – to repeat HOLY. Repent means to RE – Turn – and change your mind – RE-turn your face to the SON and darkness flees away. … RE- Generated!! When is Truth the truth. When God said it or when you believe it? When God said it!! We believe unto JOY and Peace seeing the soul saved by His grace and mercy with His Goodness following us all of our days! Goodness means upright, just, and righteous in Heart and In Life … who’s heart and who’s life? Our Father’s heart and life eternal and unconditional love.

So let the redeemed of the Lord say so! I am Holy – I am Undefiled – I am Innocent, Perfect, and Pure.

Romans 1:4 & 5:17; Luke 1:1-3 & 75; Genesis 35:2; Jeremiah 2:21; Leviticus 19:15-17; John 15:3,4&5; Mark 14:25; Revelation 14:18&19

Selah – Yes, we can rest with that assurance. 🙂 🙂

THIS IS THAT

Nourished UP in Him this morning!

Stirred UP to remember His yoke IS UNION … what God hath joined together let no man put asunder [asunder means to separate, divorce, or divide].He hates divorce was to the wandering children of Israel who went about establishing there own ways of righteousness. Setting up vain ways to join themselves to God in their own understanding; instead of just trust and believe they were IN HIM Holy and blessed to possess the Holy land. Christ is the Holy One – the Fit Man – the Perfect Lamb – the One Rock IN whom we stand.

His JOY – This is That – is He has rendered unto ALL men His Righteousness [Christ as all in all] and that is the JOY seen on His face, the favor, the Power of the Resurrection, and our shared strength with Peace to abound IN ONE sound.

Always-N-Joy, Joanne

The Faithful Believing City

Hello City!

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

Established in Grace

It’s a very good thing for our heart to know we have been established in grace. Grace is the Keeper or Watchman of our salvation.

Now by the same Spirit of Grace we enjoy the same level of unashamed relationship with the Father as Jesus does. Why? Because He prayed that we would know the Love our Father has for us and rest being AS ONE.  Think about it…”Whatever is TRUE of HIM, is TRUE of US in HIM right now.” 1John 2:8 & 4:17

Now that is GOOD NEWS! He is forever loving and enlightening us to His love and SO GREAT SALVATION.

I love searching the unsearchable riches of our inheritance. I found this word peace to be another JOINED AS ONE.

The Greek word Peace #G1515 is eirēnē pronounced ā-rā’-nā means PEACE but also more JOINED AS ONE to PEACE to produce harmony — because peace and harmony make and keep things quiet, safe and prosperous and exemption from the rage and havoc of war.

Faith is to trust and believe – whom or what do we trust in? Are we learning to PUT that trust in Father. We learn by seeking (SEE -King) Him and we study to know where and why we can rest. So with the understanding we get  “in the KNOWING” we can keep yielding our members to Him which has so graciously joined us unto His peace and harmony.

“And the very God of peace [G1515] sanctify you wholly; and your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1Thes. 5:23

I can hear the shout, “Get ready to bloom in a Beautiful Way!”

Always-N-Joy-N-Peace, Joanne

Oh For Amazing Love

No matter what you’re going through and no matter what challenges you, or your loved ones may be facing; when you remember your divine connection AS ONE – Love, Light, and Gracious support is accessed and you begin to claim your birthright.

These “storms” are never for our testing but to show us How fortified we are in Him. We will see when squeezed what comes out. That just let’s us know is it in love or in fear. Then handle with tender loving care and know the solution is right near by.

We can resist and hold on to control or release control and know there is a bigger picture that we need to SEE. If we are weary it is because we trust our strength. Trust HIM and you will surely soar.

We continue to ask for the LIGHT to shine for our Soul to be shown Peace and Rest. We are promised there is joy and peace when we BELIEVE. Our natural eyes may not always see this. YOUR spiritual eyes though will notify your heart and your heart will notify your reflection.

 Christ IN us is the Force of our Source that is always by grace and mercy. Perfect LOVE (Christ) throws out ALL fears because the PRESENCE of LOVE is THERE.

May your eyes see and your heart know this love so amazing.

There are tokens of His Love to be discovered each day!

Always-N-Joy,  Joanne


It’s a Beautiful Morning!

It’s a Beautiful Morning!

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

I Will Give You Rest

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

The Anchor Holds

In the midst of any storm the most elite Cruise ships throw at least five anchors to hold that ship in place and steady while the storm passes by. They do not try to out run a storm.

In our lives a storm can appear suddenly. Stop long enough to throw these anchors to stabilize and hold steady – this too shall pass.

These can be used to stabilize any Relation-ship, Fellow-ship,

Champion-ship, Citizen-ship, Partner-ship, Court-ship, Disciple-ship, Distributor-ship, Friend-ship, Leader-ship, Member-ship, and Workman-ship.

1.) Christ IN us – Our place there is guaranteed in rest & peace.
Philemon 1:6, 2Cor.4:6, Jude 1:24

2.) Our Union “AS ONE” with Him – Joint-Heir
1Corinthians 6:17 and 12:13

3.) His Covenants – What He has in place to remind us exactly how HE is keeping us. Isaiah 54:10, Hebrews 13:20

4.) Race Gift – Righteousness which is Christ in us.
Romans 3:24, Romans 5:17-21

5.) Mercy – His Covenant of mercy is in place for our unbelief.

With God ALL things are possible because we are rooted and grounded in the Love of God.

2Timothy 2:13, Romans 11:32, Psalms 23:6, Romans 15:13

Psalms 23:6 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”

Philemon 1:6 “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which IS IN you IN Christ Jesus.”

Romans 5:21 “That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through Righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord” Christ IS the Righteousness of God.

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.”

Jude 1:24 “Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the Presence of His Glory with exceeding joy.”
