09.27.20 From Revelation to Manifestation – notes
(2Co 4:2 NKJV) But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
God wants to manifest His light THROUGH you! But He cannot do that, He will not do that without your cooperation.
(1Co 2:14 NKJV) But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
“The Holy Spirit can only come into us when we are fully yielded to Him.”
(2Co 4:7 NKJV) But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
(2Co 4:11-12 NKJV) For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So then death is working in us, but life in you.
When the life of Jesus comes, He will MANIFEST Himself through you to other people. It’s not you… it’s Jesus manifesting Himself through the Spirit. And you begin to shine! What a wonderful way to live!
(2Co 4:16 NKJV) Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
(2Co 4:18 NKJV) while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
(2Co 5:1 KJV) For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have
a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
(2Co 5:4 NKJV) For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life.
(1Pe 5:8 NKJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
Don’t be swallowed up by the devil… don’t let his lies work any longer in your flesh and in your thinking. You can be swallowed up by God instead!
Smith Wigglesworth put it this way, “You cannot get into life except through death, and you cannot get into death except by life. When God reveals what He has prepared for you, it is up to you to then believe it! Receive what He has prepared!
(2Co 5:15 NKJV) and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
(2Co 5:16 NKJV) Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer.
(2Co 5:17 NKJV) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
