The Kingdom of Love

Matt 5:20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (ESV) Verses like that have been used by religion to put fear into people’s lives.  When fear comes, love has no chance.  That is why perfect love casts out fear.  How…

Light through the good-bad

John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.  All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made.  That which was made in it was life, and the life was the light of men.…

The Master Plan

In the last post I hopefully laid some foundations for reframing our perspectives.  To know God and walk in the gospel and experience the saving power of our inclusion we need a cold bucket of water dumped on our broken thinking.  When we look back over the last 2000 years, in the western church, we have…

Jesus Suit

Once we get past all the religious junk we finally get to step into the reality of the Kingdom of Heaven as God intended all along.  I know I use this passage in Ephesians often but it is so good: Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has…

Mess Makers – The great I am NOT

In “Undeniable Incarnate Inclusion” I tried to capture just a glimpse of what the incarnation means to us.  That is actually a funny way of putting since the incarnation means everything to us.  There is a definitive before and after.  We are in the definitive “after.”  We are one with Jesus.  We are included in…

Mess Makers – Holy Distortions

When we have a wrong, broken, distorted, fallen, deceived, derived or “balanced” image of God we will absolutely find ourselves in the middle of a giant mess.  The messes in our lives are products of our fallen perception of self and God.  Jesus is the answer.  He not only annihilated the Sin nature on the…

Undeniable Incarnate Inclusion

Before the incarnation we had no internal intimate union with the divine triune Perfection. Now we can know God like Jesus and experience God like Jesus and be loved by God like Jesus and be an anointed son like Jesus. This is what Jeremiah was talking about. Heb 10:15 And the Holy Spirit also bears witness…

A Great Mystery

2 Cor 5:14 For the love of Christ controls and urges and impels us, because we are of the opinion and conviction that [if] One died for all, then all died; (AMP) This is a great mystery…one died for all then all died.  Something so profound happened for us and TO US when Jesus was incarnated,…

Beautiful Illumination

2Co 4:6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.  (ESVST) In the last post I talked about light and darkness in a “new light.”  OK, that was an intended pun.  If…
