Making Change: Every now and then it dawns on me how much we can consistently count on change.

Things are changing every day, and actually, in every present second.  If we embrace and take charge and stay on it with our potential choices, we may ride change like a surfer rides the waves.  Change can become an exciting and challenging  adventure... surfing consciously the on-going shifting and re-arranging changes that are happening wherever things are alive and growing. It becomes a matter of acceptance and understanding, that change is a way of life. We will begin to stand up and find our balance and ride on it, or it will overcome us. The quality of life is involved. Change is a necessary part of TRANSFORMATION.  How could TRANSFORMATION take place without change?

Are you realizing that you can't avoid it? One way or another you are determining how you will process the changes that are here and still coming. How you handle and think about and prepare for the option for change today will be what determines the outcome and results of change in your tomorrow.  We need to have faith in Christ in us to carry us through and bring us out where we belong and need to be.  We need courage and we need to become flexible. 

We need to ditch perfectionism so we can make our mistakes and allow others to make theirs and learn from them and get back up and moving again and not be paralyzed by former experiences

Learn from them and you are not the same person who was without experience... your mistakes can become your valuable education.  People who cannot accept they've made mistakes cannot learn from them.  They will be stuck and crippled for the rest of the race.

See how time changes things.  Things are changing rather we like it or not.  Can't control all of this one.  You can count on it: We are moving into change, change and more change.  We must begin to consider it like breathing.  We don't just 'get somewhere' and then we can quit trying.

Change will come and if you are still alive you will be changing rather you choose it or not, change will choose you.

Change makes us strong and flexible.

Change causes us to know that the only thing more faithful and reliable than change is the faithfulness and steadfastness of our God.  Our God meets us and carries us and walks us into and through change.

Change does a work and a process.

It is like an escalator that brings one to different places and levels.  We are moving and changing.  We can have more choices and more power in the midst of change when we get ourselves in tune with Real Life and with THE MIND OF CHRIST.  We can co-operate with this operation, and when we feel out-of-control, we can practice self-control, which is a fruit of the spirit.  We can stay conscious and not deceive or anesthetize our selves with addictive behavior and substances.  We can keep our conscious connection with The True God open and active and not choose cheap substitutes and pacifiers to comfort us.  This is a kind of walking on water.  It is something that must be done with our consciousness in the supernatural, not limited by the natural. This is the time to find out who we are and who we are joined to and what are the keys and the gifts and the tools and the wisdom that we have to work with.  Our generation loves to play video games that are exciting and dangerous, to see how skilled they are to win and overcome and get the prize or the acknowledgment.  This life is something that is our real race and sport and adventure and challenge and it is all about victory and success and perception and understanding.  We have all won the opportunity to have a human life and to see what we can do with it.

Change is the moving path and tunnel through the maze of time that holds in it everything we need to win and find our way through and to overcome and succeed.  The question may be: what is success?  We need to find out what the reward are for overcoming and how does one overcome, and what do we overcome and what is the prize?  The word talks about 'the prize of the high calling'.

If you are the owner of a human life, you have already run a triatholon and won.

You were at one point really double-minded... you were a sperm cell and an egg.  The egg was the cheerleader and the sperm cell was running the race against billions others like himself.  That was you swimming for the prize of the high calling, which at that time was the right to win a human life.  You were the one who won that race and pierced the egg that shut down the rest of the race.  You won among billions like you and conception took place.  Then you had to make it through nine months of losing your identity as a sperm cell and also as an egg, and you were becoming one human being.  Your life was being formed in the womb of your mother and it was a miracle and an overcoming victory because you made it to the right to have a life!!!!  Now when people say, 'Get a life!' You know how much of an insult that is and where it puts you on the maturity chart in their eyes.  You have a life and it was one heck of a big win!  The race should have been televised all over the world!  Billions ran.  You were the winner!  Congratulations! 

And now you are running another race in order to become one with another life... this one is the life of the son of God, and you are becoming or have become a partaker in the Divine Nature of God and another stage of your evolution has happened.  You got to the end of yourself as a lonely sperm cell, and now you have reached a new purpose and potential and become a part of an entirely new kind of conception.  You are conceived of The Holy Spirit!  Jesus was conceived of The Holy Spirit!  He is The Firstborn of Many Brethren, one of whom is not your new spirit-man!  You laid down your little human, carnal, egotistical spirit and exchanged that for the spirit of the Son of God!  Conception has taken place and you are now being colonized into the kingdom of God.  Just like when conception took place in your natural mother, and you took on a new life form, that has happened again!  You have entered into another stage in the potential of a life... You have become a partaker now of THE DIVINE NATURE OF GOD!  Just like a new baby, you probably don't 'get' what's going on, and don't understand too much, and you probably are doing a lot of 'being in the word' or 'eating' , a lot of "pooping" (that is deliverance... or getting rid of what needs to be eliminated from your soul and your life) and you probably are spitting up and crying a lot, trying to figure out how to get your needs met in this new realm.  You have arrived!  Embrace it.  This is Life and there is more in the wind.  Change is in the wind.

Will the changes that are bound to come be exciting, hopeful and wonderful, or difficult, dreadful and challenging?  Will you think something is terribly wrong?  Or will you know that you are dropping off the useless and worthless for the precious and satisfying?

Will stubbornness and resistance control your perceptions or will hope and adventure cause you to embrace your necessary changes, choosing and deciding for yourself rather than letting life 'happen' to you?  You are entering into THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, THAT IS 'THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE'.  ARE YOU DOING YOUR STRETCHES AND DRINKING LOTS OF WATER AND GETTING READY TO RUN THE INEVITABLE AND MOST ADVENTURESOME RACE OF A LIFETIME?  OR ARE YOU PUTTING YOUR HEAD UNDER THE COVERS AND HIDING FROM THE TRUMPET SOUNDS THAT ARE INFORMING YOU THAT THE TIME TO PRESS IN TO THE HIGH CALL OF GOD THAT IS ON YOUR LIFE IS AT HAND... THIS IS A GOOD AND WONDERFUL THING.  IT WILL BE THE FULFILLMENT OF YOUR LIFE.  IT IS FOOLISH FOR A BABY TO REFUSE TO BE BIRTHED OUT OF THE WOMB... EVER HEARD OF A 'C' SECTION?  ONE WAY OR ANOTHER... BETTER FOR YOU IF YOU PUSH YOUR WAY THROUGH AND HAVE THE EXPEREINCE RATHER THAN TO BE AIR LIFTED OUT OF THIS CHALLENGE.  GOD DOES NOT GIVE YOU MORE THAN YOU CAN HANDLE AND HE IS THE SOVERIGN OVER-SEER OF EACH AND EVERY LIFE THAT MOVES INTO THIS DEGREE OF OPPORTUNITY.

Change is a present second process of opportunity or devastation.

The choices we make in the midst of change are the power of the fork in the road, followed by another fork in the road, followed by another.  We don't want to fall by default, but to deliberately and prayerfully make our decisions and choices and count on God to correct us and find us and redirect us when we get a little off.  "His rod and His staff, they comfort me."  The Shepherd has a long wooden staff with a crook on the end, they comfort me because He uses this instrument to prod us on the left and on the right and the crook is able to come around our neck and draw us back if we wander off into dangerous territory, or get too far from Him.

 

The 23rd Psalm tells us that The Shepherd doesn't want the sheep to be afraid, but to be fed and to have water and to lay down in green pastures... not rocky, thorny terrain.  We are being guided and led.  As long as we are open and willing to receive the guidance, and direction and help, it is there for us.  We need to know it, ask for it, want it, receive it, and choose to believe it, and enjoy and benefit from it and it is there.  He is there.  God is here for us all the time.  Often we don't perceive His presence and communication.  None-the-less, it is always available and no matter how far off we may get, He knows exactly where we are and as quickly as we ask and will receive, He will get us back where we need to be.  We may not be aware of all the facets of our lives that minister His adjustments and support, but He uses them all.  All things are His.  All people are His rather they know it or not.  He likes to let them find out for themselves what is satisfying in the end, and what is painful and destructive.  He didn't make us robots, but wants us to choose Life.  He says, 'This day I set before you life and death... choose life'.  He gives us the choices and then tells us which one to choose, but we still need to choose, and we often don't yet understand what real life is and means.  But we learn.  We learn and we live.  We live and we change.  We change and we grow.

Change is in the air. Change has the nature of fire that makes things take on a different form in the process.

Fire makes wood change form from a log to become heat, light, flame, gas, vapor, color, etc.  Fire transforms the wood, that otherwise had no potential to keep us warm or cook the food, etc. (Wood denotes human nature; Fire denotes the nature of God.)

Change is like a meat grinder that will make you moldable and shapeable.  It brings the opportunity of diverse experience.

As quickly as you master and understand where you are and why, you are likely to move into teaching that to those who are just coming into what you are just leaving.

Change is the great machinery that is made up of your present seconds while they are here and passing, at are each full of elements, relationships, option and choices that are for the very purpose of causing you to change form...  The action taken in the present second, even though it comes and goes in tiny increments has the power to re-direct your path.  Every thought is transforming... one way or another.  We must choose our thoughts wisely and become aware of the tremendous power that our thoughts have in our direction and experience, in our situations and our victories.  Your thoughts will trans-form you.

Many of us lost the power to choose our thoughts as we gave ourselves over to addiction or co-dependency or depression and fear.

We do have the power restored to us in Christ to choose our thoughts again.  We are able to choose our emotions only by first choosing our thoughts.  We will think it and then we feel it and then will (or will not) move it into our actions and communication and behavior.  Our thoughts become us or are very unbecoming to us.  All thought comes from a source.  You can know by the substance and content of a thought where it comes from... life or death?  Light or darkness?  Courage or fear?  Good or evil?

We can take back our power to choose.  It was purchased for us at Calvary.

We honor all that was done for us in that finished work when we take back our power and authority in the name of Jesus Christ, and exercise it to overcome that which once overcame us.

Choose your thoughts as wisely and carefully, at least, as you choose your produce at the grocery store.

Don't put rotten fruit in your cart and don't put negative thoughts in your mind.  Know the difference between a thought a temptation and a thought that you choose to entertain rather than resist and choose a more excellent thought.

Change may in-form you, it can also de-form you... depending on the spirit directing the thoughts that you choose to accept as your own and dwell on or entertain further in your imagination; by your thoughts you will be changed.

Without wisdom and direction we can change for the worse.  We can refuse to be actively engaged in the process and instead allow the steam shovel of time to force us beyond our deadlines to meet the consequences of our procrastination, or be led in a timely way, by the spirit of God and enter the land of the living who move in the realm of obedience and dance to the tune of the reward system.  He says, 'Forget not all My Benefits'...

Change is here and change is coming.

A life unexamined is a life not worth living.

How are you handling it?

How is it working for you?

How are you processing your changes?

He is appearing in you, and there is no doubt that His appearing in you and as you will cause dramatic and explosive change.

You can change your mind, you know?

You can make it work for you and not against you.

How?

("Let that mind be in you that is also in Christ Jesus').

There is need to know the nature and substance and content of THE MIND OF CHRIST.

We also need to know the nature and wiles of the anti-christ and his subtle and evil spirits that serve him.

We need to know that we do have the equipment that both are seeking.  We need to know the value of a soul to Christ and to anti-christ.

We need to know that we do have the power to choose.

Those in active addiction have lost the power to choose through idolatry,

but the power to choose is able to be restored to them in Christ.

Change.  Transformation.  Transition.

This is powerful movement that disassembles and reassembles the puzzle pieces of life.

Let that mind be in you that is also in Christ Jesus.

It is time to begin to grasp what, exactly, that means in terms of our daily practical living.  We are able to make decisions about the Way our lives are going.  We are able to 'take the bull by the horns' and turn it over. We can overcome all of the adversity in our lives.  The righteous will have many difficulties but The Lord will deliver them out of them all.

We can 'let it' and by choice, commitment, prayer and yielding, by living deliberately and consciously... turn it over to The One Who uses change with the power of godly transformation, resurrection life, and turns it to work out for your best interest.

We will experience change and grow up, toward desirable maturity in this life or we will pass on our options and conscious participation in the decision making process, and instead, grow stagnant, and settle into a retarded result of our own potential.  He will increase and we will decrease, or by doing nothing, we shift onto the down escalator, and move passively into the jaws of death, 'the last enemy to be destroyed'.

Anything alive is growing and changing in one way or another.

Some things, like some people, just get older, but some get better, some things get dusty and rusty. We, who are spirit-men, sons of God after Jesus The Firstborn of many brethren, we each have a soul to wisely woo and win for the sake of Perfect Love.  This is the personal relationship we have between our own soul and Christ in us.

He who wins souls is wise, and the epitome of wisdom is Christ in you, the Hope of Glory.  God treasures souls.  The Firstborn is here for our souls.  He is The Lover of your soul and The Savior of your body.  He is The Lover of The Corporate Soul and The Savior of His Corporate Body.

Of course then, He wants us to prosper and be in good health according to the prosperity of our soul.  Do you know what the prosperity of your soul might look like?

It will look like the bride of Christ.  It will come through great purification, sanctification and transformation and at this point we are in transition. Christ in us is the power of transformation, the power of The Holy Spirit that works from the inside out.  This is our treasure in earthen vessels.  We are Partakers of His Divine Nature.  This is Resurrection Life breaking from the inside out.  This is a precious explosion of change and is able to be manifested in the form of good works, the fruit of the spirit and the anointing of God.

We are handling precious things.  We are working with The Divine.  We are dealing with eternity, immortality and incorruptibility.

We want to be sure that we are active in storing up treasures where thieves cannot steal them and rust cannot destroy?

Some things and some people age gracefully, like fine wine, some just get old.  Some people and some things get ripe, like sweet fruit, some get ripe like stinky socks.  Some people and some things grow more seasoned and valuable as they mature; others just fall apart.  We have something to say and do about how time affects us and how we respond to the season of life that are going to happen and come and go rather we like it or not.

It is in the midst of change that there is both death and life at work.

There is the death of the old and the birth of the new.

People who are not afraid of change and transition are a humble and courageous people who are constantly and consciously re-evaluating themselves and their situation.

As long as time is passing, things are changing, one way or another.

Some things and people do not move with time and change, but rather resist change and have been deceived to believe that they can just settle and stay the way they are.

They are into self-deception and denial.

We will either be changing with the times and seasons, or we will grow stagnant, get behind and die in the wilderness.

We are going somewhere.

A life is a journey and not a destination.

We need to understand that change is our opportunity to move into the more excellent way.

We have been called into The Process of Transformation, which is the epitome of opportunity... that we might become partakers of that Divine Nature that belongs to a company of a multitude of spirit-men, with Jesus at The Head.  One of those may be your own spirit-man, the offspring of God, a new creature in Christ, after Jesus The Firstborn of Many Brethren.  If I am repeating my self, it is for your sake.  What a privilege and responsibility for those who have known such darkness as the likes of us have, to experience and walk in this glorious Light in which the Great Son Company is appearing in the long-awaited MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD.

This is the only experience that has the full power to develop to maturity, your God-given potential and to cause you to be the most fulfilled, creative, happy and versatile loving person possible.  This explosive work of transformation will draw to you everyone and everything that belongs networked into your life by God's design.  He said, 'If I be lifted up, I will draw (drag) all men unto Me.' He said this referring to His cross.  When we also take up our cross and die daily, and we decrease and He increases, all men are drawn unto Him... even in Him in you.  Don't let it go to your head, (your ego), but all the glory should go to your Head, The Lord Jesus Christ.
