You may be wondering why those who follow Christ in the way of the cross has to die such a deep and a painful death.
It is because the Father’s heart is birthed in the sons through the sacrifice, the passion, the death and the ministry of the cross.
WE ENTER GOD’S LOVE THROUGH SACRIFICE
His love is not like fleshly human love. Fleshly human emotional love only seeks it’s own benefit and own good and live to serve it’s own interests. So the Father is working death unto self into all who will be used to serve His purposes and interests in the harvest fields.
His love is a self-sacrificial kinda love that seeks the good and the benefit of others as was demonstrated in the life of His Son which is God’s only example given to the church of the body of Jesus Christ.
THOSE WHO ARE LED BY THE SPIRIT ARE THE SONS OF GOD, NOT THOSE WHO ARE DRIVEN BY THEIR FLESHLY LUSTS.
So He is exposing and rooting out everything in us that is contrary to His love.
GOD IS RESTORING THE PURE LANGUAGE OF HIS LOVE TO THE CHURCH AS HE COMES TO PUT HIS LOVE ON DISPLAY THROUGH THE END-TIME MINISTRIES OF HIS MATURE SONS.
These are not 30 fold fleshly outer court immature babies who live in their emotions.
They are are not the 60 fold still developing children who are still being trained and healed through the inner court ministry of the Spirit.
These through whom the fullness of the Diety shall manifest shall be the 100 fold fully matured and glorified sons of God after the likeness and image of their firstborn brother Jesus.
These will say like Christ in Luke 22:27 but I am among you as he that serves.
They will not court honor nor covet glory nor seek to make a name for themselves for these will be released into the body of Christ as serving priests and shall be known as the Melchizedek Priesthood.
God’s true sons after the similitude of Jesus shall restore and manifest the true nature and glory of His SPIRIT POWER ministry spoken of in Isaiah 61.
Christ and His true bride shall serve the Father’s agenda to bring forth a harvest of righteousness within the earth.
1 The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
3 To provide for them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.
5 And foreigners shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
6 But you shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: you shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall you boast yourselves.
7 Instead of your shame you shall have double; and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.
8 For I the LORD love justice, I hate robbery with a burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
9 And their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the descendants whom the LORD has blessed.
10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the earth brings forth its bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
God’s end-time sons shall be like Gideon’s 300 men, which speaks of a small remnant, that’s being sifted out from amongst the world of Christendom.
Father showed me a powerful vision of His end-time agenda through His remnant army within the earth through whom He shall move to reap a mighty harvest.
I saw God sitting on His throne and the river of life was flowing out before Him. Then I saw these soldiers as with Gideon on either side of His river on their knees in worship drinking from the river of God.
Father said “Many are called but only few are chosen. Many are called but so few are willing to humble themselves before Me and come down to the water level of humility to drink from My river where the pure doctrine and revelation of the gospel of My kingdom flows so that I might train them and raise them as a good soldier of Jesus Christ, for far too many of My children are caught up in the civilian affairs of the realm of the flesh so they disqualify themselves because of many distractions.”
Did Christ not say in Luke 9:57 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.
58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has nowhere to lay His head.
59 And He said unto another, Follow Me. But he said, Lord, allow me first to go and bury my father.
60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but you go and preach the kingdom of God.
61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow you; but let me first go bid them farewell, who are at home at my house.
62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
