What really made Jesus the delight of men? He exemplified divinity among mortals. He was an expression of the fullness of God. All of the magnificence and perfection of God sprout out of him; an effulgence of wholeness. He was so comely and altogether beautiful.
Anywhere humanity, with its many sufferings met Christ in his physical existence, he encountered a glorious deposit of heaven which none of the religious leaders nor the upper class of society administered from. Scripture underscores that he is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature.
In His earthy presence, Jesus never used the words: ”i love you” or ”i care about you” in its literal sense, but those who met him felt an unusual awareness of care and tenderness emanating from the radiance of His words and in his actions. His words were life to those who were sitting helplessly in the twilight chambers of sin and death. The downtrodden found a new possibility in His presence; sprouting like wildflowers.
Why is the believer not taken the necessary advantage of the boundless possibilities in Christ to be transformed, as we deliberately host the beauty and the riches of His words in our hearts?
”And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18 AMPC
Not many in the body of Christ have unearthed this spiritual mystery of hosting the word in our hearts to appropriate its supreme benefits. The totality of Gods word is the multifaceted expression of Christ’s magnificence through revelation. When we say Jesus is the word we are not talking about the words you hear every day from the news media or even from your best friends. We are talking about divinity in it’s purest expression.
These words of men we host inside our hearts daily as an anchor of the soul make us feel miserable, wounded, lethargic, depressed, and at it’s worst a fall away from God.
The language of the world is so often drawn from the fountain of iniquity instead of the fountain of life, which is Christ. This is the mystery of heaven upon us; the beauty of Christ, the words of life. Our Destiny hinges on it’s perfect ambience.
The Apostle Paul, by the spirit of Chrst trumpeted from the mountain top of Zion to men who dwell in the valleys to host the realities of heaven in our hearts. It is the surest path to conquests
”Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom [in spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in your hearts.” Colossians 3:16 AMPC
The beauty of Christ is the whispers of the Father serenading the heart of the believer who with desire waits on Him. Imagine how his disposition would be like… That man who generously rejoices in the beauty of the words of life; his heart drowned completely into its boundless possibilities. His heart will be filled with the ancient melodies of heaven, and his soul shall be free from the invisible chains of the depravity which have kept down the heart and soul of so many believers in the vault of despair. You can be free today, my friend.
It is the will of the father that we be free from the dictates of this world. This is the reason he has established the spiritual system of the word transformation power. It behoves us to follow Gods wisdom path to attain the glories. We rise by relishing the beauties of Christ, the word of God, with all of our heart, and with our spirit
This is a supernatural advantage for the believer. He can alter his circumstances at any given time. He can recreate the spiritual climate [ by casting out satanic operations that manipulate his circumstances through the word at heart ] to affect his physical reality. All he has to do is to align the entirety of his being with the spiritual laws of Christ, which far out weights the decrees and legislations of hell.
It is by this reason Paul, through the Holy Spirit prescribed for us of the necessity of letting the words of Christ to dwell in your hearts richly. He didn’t say let your circumstances dwell in your hearts richly. Because this is not how we elevate in the kingdom. We elevate by elevating Christ above our problems. This is powerful!
“How precious is Your steadfast love, O God! The children of men take refuge and put their trust under the shadow of Your wings. They relish and feast on the abundance of Your house; and You cause them to drink of the stream of Your pleasures. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light do we see light. [John 4:10, 14.]” Psalm 36:7-9 AMPC
We rise by setting the decrees of our Saviour before our eyes like a flint. When you relish and feast from the abundance of revelation, God will cause you to drink of the eternal stream of His pleasures. Instead of defeat you will find victory. Instead of death, His life will rule and reign in the places you never could have imagined.
Find a quiet place and wait patiently in the presence of the Father, as you allow the Holy Spirit to stir an understanding in the riches of the word of life. You will encounter a greater light which gives you the audacity to walk into your higher heights and stature in life, without fear or grumbling.
CONFESSION: I will make it a daily habit to dwell in Gods word through reading, meditation, and prayers until it’s beauty find a place within my spirit. May the world see a transformation in my life, which is an expression of the supernatural force of God.
