Abiding Presence and the Manifest Presence of God

image from www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.comLynn Donovan here....

This is Part II in the series: Christ In Me

Read Part I (here).

Since my last post I’ve been seriously practicing the abiding Presence of Christ within. I focus on a few scriptures and I read aloud a looooooong statement of faith several times each week. This statement of faith is based upon scriptural truths. When I read these promises and truths this is what is happening to me.

  1. I refocus on the absolute truth about who God says I am and who He says He is.
  2. I am then reminded about everything that has ALREADY BEEN ACCOMPLISHED for me.
  3. I speak the truths out loud to put the demons on notice that if they mess with me, I will set them on fire and their butts will be handed to them!!!!!!!
  4. I’m dispelling doubts that may be intruding based upon my current experience.
  5. I’m embracing truths that I build my faith upon and then rest anticipating positive outcomes.
  6. I stir my spirit into belief.
  7. I then step into faith with belief for the miraculous.
  8. I begin to practice my faith by speaking aloud my expectations through commands just as Jesus models.
  9. I banish all thoughts of doubt, unbelief and FEAR.
  10. I then set my mind to expect the unfolding of what I have released from my authority in Christ Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit.

All of this process is in acknowledgement of the truth that Christ Jesus and the holy Spirit lives WITHIN ME. I am never alone. Christ lives with me. He is always available. I can hear His voice and I lean on His leadings.

Now, is this a process? Yes, some days I walk down this path of faith fairly quickly. Others, I battle against, fear, doubts and the circumstances of life. I battle the demonic who wants me to believe something other than the divinely inspired Word of God.

I’m finding these battles are fewer than in the past and my realignment with truth occurs much more quickly as I take thoughts captive to Christ.

So, this is the result.

Currently I’m battling a bump that appeared on my face near an incision line where cancerous cells were removed two years ago. I am commanding, believing, proclaiming and demanding complete healing. In Jesus name. Always, ALWAYS, in Jesus name. I have no authority outside of Christ but when I’m walking in belief and faith I contain tremendous amounts of power and authority.

I will, I WILL........ see this bump disappear before I arrive at the dermatologist. I want a dermatologist to tell me there is nothing there. That appointment is about a month out.

Interestingly, I was in a prayer session Monday, and as I prayed along with someone else, the nodule bust open and the pain lessened immediately.

WAHOOOOO!!

Okay, this post has already gone way to long. I will share in the future more regarding the manifest presence of God (and it's good). But next time, I need to tell you what happened when I began to pray in October about my hands!!!!!!

Stay tuned! Stories of the Kingdom of God are flying off my fingers.

I LOVE JESUS SO MUCH!!!  I love you so much also. Blessings and hugs, Lynn


Want To Heal Yourself and Others? - Step Into This Truth of the Word!

John 14 23Today, I want to charge right into a religious demon.

Yep, I’m pretty much over small talk at this point in my life *grin*. I want to talk about REAL things that TRULY matter.

I’m in a new and significant learning curve. Six months ago, Father took me through the entire Bible and revealed the truth (and the lies) about the end times passages. It was one of the most revelatory seasons of my life. I have such peace about the end of the age, the rapture, the church and this world. Thank you, Lord.

Today, I want to challenge what I believe the church in general, believes about the Presence of God. And this is without condemnation. But here it is:

Scripture teaches:

You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. ROMANS 8:9-10

Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. JOHN 14:23

To whom God was pleased to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. COLOSSIANS 1:27

Okay, I’m mostly talking to myself now, but I’ve been captive to an error mindset. I know that in seasons past, I would pray things like, “Jesus, please show up. Jesus, bring Your Presence. Lord, I need you to come to me and show me what to do next. Jesus, where are you?”

Also, I’ve participated and joyfully sang worship lyrics that are calling for Jesus, and/or The Presence to “come down.”

Now, I’m not placing any condemnation upon myself or anyone else that has prayed or sang similarly. Yet, the Lord is revealing a deception to me that I didn’t understand prior to now.

Here it is: Christ LIVES in me.

“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” GALATIANS 2:20

Now I know we all have read this passage many times, but do we TRULY believe it? Because when you begin to truly catch the revelation of this truth…… IT CHANGES EVERYTHING!

We ALWAYS have God in us. Christ dwells in us. The Holy Spirit lives IN us. Father is in us because Christ and the Father are one. We are one together with Christ.

Wow wee!

Now take a minute to think this through. When we truly BELIEVE the Word of God and begin to comprehend that God is in us, and we don’t need to wait for Him to show up to bring healing, wisdom, salvations, help, and rescue, blessings, etc……, we arise to a new level of power and authority in Christ.

This means…..

RIGHT NOW: I am healed, in Jesus name.

RIGHT NOW: I am free of addictions, fear, anxiety, and small living.

RIGHT NOW: I have access to the Father’s provision because He owns the cattle on a thousand hills.

RIGHT NOW: I AM FREE from demonic oppression, petty friendships, stupid concerns of this earth, and what others think about me.

RIGHT NOW: I’m free to live authentically and wholly as created by God.

This also means……

RIGHT NOW: I carry the Son of the Living God within. The weight of this fathomless truth pushes me to greater honor, respect, and reverence.

RIGHT Now: My selfish and petty desires are insignificant to the lavish riches of my inheritance and the blessings that are mine, right now, on earth as it is in heaven.

RIGHT NOW: Humility and worship empower my prayers to lead others into freedom and truth.

RIGHT NOW: I feel coursing through my body, the potential of the untapped power source as well as the preeminent authority I carry as a daughter of Yahweh!

RIGHT NOW: Absolute devotion and surrender are the only response!

My friends, something is happening. I can feel the God of the ages alive in me. I want to rush to Walmart and pray for everyone strolling the produce isle. I want to meet the postman at the door and ask to lay hands on him. I am compelled to stop living in lazy comfort and to bring Christ into every interaction, all my days and night, into my church, my family, all my conversations and to become what Christ has promised to those who believe:

Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become (powerful and authoritative) children of God— JOHN 1:12

I DON’T NEED TO CALL God to come down. I will no longer wait until I feel His manifest Presence because He is alive in me. All. The. Time. Forever.

When we begin to truly walk in this reality, we will start to live like Christ Jesus. And that is what our original design demands. As a result of living fully in this reality of these promises and truths, we will….

Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give. MATTHEW 10:8

Next time you find yourself signing a song asking for God to come down, smile to yourself and call to your mind, “Christ is in me. He is already here. I carry Him with me, so what do I have to fear.”

Next Post: Difference between abiding presence and the manifest presence of God.

Okay, thoughts? See you in the comments. I love you. Walk TALL! Christ LIVES IN YOU! Hugs, Lynn

Jesus is Lord over my home, my city, my state and nation. He is preeminent, renown and ruler over all principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and spiritual wickedness in high places. He is MASTER over every galaxy and the entire universe. He reigns, sovereign, over all of creation; past, present and future.

His law is grace. His commandment is obedience and His reward is sonship. Peace, love and right living are His promises. He is wholeheartedness and the light of the world.

Jesus is kind, forgiveness is his mantle, mercy, healing, health and beauty are gifts from his bounty. His ways are light, fulfillment, authenticity and freedom.

Jesus is King!

Conversation With Papa. Why the First-Born?

First Fruit First Born A Conversation With Abba: 

A few days ago, I sat down with the Lord and began reading a passage from the Old Testament. The Lord speaks to Moses and tells him that He has chosen the Levites as His chosen/dedicated people in place of the first-born sons.

My curiosity arose and I admit I’ve never understood why the Lord chose First born? Why sons? Why is this so important to Him?

I’ve made it my goal not to just pass over passages I don’t comprehend or understand the reasoning. But to ask the Lord to explain. He is very good to respond, and I’ve gained a great deal of clarity from the Holy Spirit about the Word.

So join me as I share my conversation with the Lord. Perhaps you were curios as well?

Good Morning Abba, I’m here. Speak to me. (This is where I pause, and began to read the Bible.)

Lord, why the first-born sons? Why is it so important to you? Why do you ask for their dedication? The first impression was that first born sons or daughters are not any more or less important that other children born in succession. THAT IS COOL.

He answered me saying: First Fruits. It’s about honor and my love for the sons (all the children not just boys). The first born are given as the first fruits of the womb. The signify great value and I treasure them and keep them. Lynn it’s all about honor. Knowing I’m a good Father, it’s honor to dedicate and give first fruits of the womb to me and allow me to be that child’s caretaker. It’s worship, it’s love and sovereignty and respect.

Offering a child is noble, and it is a deep trust and faith and an offering of great love to dedicate first born unto Me. It is a very high gift that most will not offer. And thusly, the first born missed the blessings that come from this dedication.

WOW LORD! I respond. Thank you for this understanding.

Then the Lord said: I love you, My child. Keep asking. I love your heart that you want to know more.

Then an understanding or revelation arrived in my mind: First born carries a heavier responsibility than the other children. For example, they often work harder, they are often caretakers of siblings and parents. They are responsible for carrying property and a marriage to carry their name and inheritance. In many circumstances in years past, as well as today, the family business/farm is passed to the first born as they are responsible to continue to run the business. They are called to care for their parents, the orphans and widows.

With great responsibility the Lord offers great reward. A double portion. This is what it means: Double- greater responsibility brings with it greater sacrifice of personal desires. But I send to the first-born greater reward in the way of prosperity, peace of mind, identity, love, and honor.

Okay, this is the revelation I received. What are your thoughts? Hugs, Lynn
