LIVING IN THE REALITY

LIVINGINTHEREALITY

Should we tamper with the gospel by diluting the Christ and adding the law we make it more complicated than it is – we make it another gospel that robs the kingdom of vitality because is is a gospel of the flesh. We get some hybrid concoction similar to the old testament mixture of God and Baal. ‘Law’ in Paul’s terms refers to all self-effort and all performance orientation. Spirit in the new testament means the Spirit of Christ, of Sonship and the incarnate life of God in His people.

A woman said to me once after I had preached, ‘You make it sound so simple.’ ‘That’s because it is,’ I replied. The gospel of Jesus and His Kingdom is simple and profound because Christ is all and in all.

Should you desire sharpness of insight and clarity of vision you will find it in Jesus Himself. But not in His stuff.

Anything that is not Christ serves itself. There is the gospel of the Kingdom and there is the faint gospel of myth and institutionalism. It makes it easier to make a pseudo-jesus out of churchism if we are tied to ‘try harderism,’ a touch of law and a garnish of old covenant but not grounded in the reality of Christ our life. When Christ and not shadows are our life we can discern between shadow and reality. We can discern shadow gospels for what they are and embrace the reality who is Christ.

‘These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ’  Col 2.17 NIV.

C Baxter Kruger writes, ‘The gospel [of the Kingdom] does not leave you staring into heaven wondering how you are going to make it like Jesus did. The gospel does not leave you now with yourself and with figuring out how your human existence is going to be convened, how you are going to gain victory over evil, how you are going to become a member of that new covenant fellowship that Jesus has with his Father. The gospel is the news that Jesus Christ has done it. The gospel is not an invitation. The gospel is a declaration of the truth. It declares to us that we have been recreated in Jesus, that we have been delivered from evil in Jesus Christ, that we have been given a new relationship with the Father in Jesus Christ. The gospel declares to us that in the incarnation, life, death, resurrection and ascension of the Son of God, we were taken down and cleansed of all alienation; we were refashioned, recreated, born again; and we were lifted up into the circle of life shared by the Father, Son and Spirit, and there and then included in the great dance of the Triune God. Because it was no ordinary man who died and rose again and ascended. It was the incarnate Son of God, the one in and through and by whom all things exist!’

From The Great Dance by C Baxter Kruger.

‘And [we] have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him— renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all’  Col 3.10-11 NIV.

One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all’  Eph 4.6 NIV.

JUST PIECES OF RELIGION

APIECEOFRELIGIONIn planning for a conference or a gathering of Believers we can have the advantage of  knowing what Jesus is doing now, knowing what is on His heart and knowing which piece of wisdom and revelation He wishes to pass on to His people. We can do this without effort when we are one with Jesus and as a result one with our Father. Here, by reason of our status as sons and union with Father we know what He is doing – mainly because we are one with Him and also because He will have communicated His purpose through the gifts of the Spirit. More here.

INCARNATION

G.jpg

The genius of the new testament age is not the cross or the Holy Spirit. The plan is Jesus in you and Jesus as you. This is the meaning of Christ your life, as Paul spoke it.

The vicarious humanity of Christ means that Jesus is everything you need and desire to be towards God and all that you desire to be as yourself. Christ is entirely you ‘Godwards’ and completely God to you and for you. Jesus is much more than a door and a way. He is the generous extravagance of your belonging in the heavenly family. Jesus is your belief in God. He is your faith. He is your belief in Himself and our Father. It is because of Him you are relieved of the pressure to keep close to Jesus. In yourself this is an impossibility. In Him it is a fact. Because Jesus is your life; because He lives in you and because the trinity resides in you, Jesus is always with you. He is utterly and entirely representative of you and the church.

So what is your task? It is to live in His life and not your own. It is to rest in Him. It is to accept who He is and what He has done for you. Just be yourself in Christ. Step consciously into where you already are – in Christ. To be a ‘living sacrifice’ is not to become a non-entity, a door mat for others or a miserable person who goes about submitting to the arrogant or ignorant. It is to find that our carnality is dissolved in Jesus and find our misconceptions about God drop away. It is also to become who we are and advance into our true identity and purpose. Hidden in Christ your genuine inner man and inner woman will shine.

If we are Christian and our spirit is dead we have a poor concept of ourselves and we give a poor witness since we do not represent life to the full. A crippled spirit results from the attempt to live in a diminished Christ, a lesser gospel and old covenant mind-sets. The fullness of healing is found when we receive the fullness of Christ our our life.

Being a living sacrifice means abandoning yourself to Christ and allowing Him to totally be your life. This takes a bit of work if we have been raised in legalism or its cousin, churchianity. Jesus advocated Himself as life itself. Not only eternal life but the infinite life untouched by any form of un-life. His person in us does more than drive out sin. Jesus is not sin oriented. He is life oriented, which means that He fills you with spirit and life. Lack of spirit is the sign of a wounded and dying person. Many people are alive in body but dead in spirit. Spirit here is not some emotional category, although spirit does effect our emotions. Your spirit is the essential you. The Sandfords have written an excellent book entitled, Healing the Wounded Spirit.

‘And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you’ Rom 8.11 NIV.

 

Out of Your Being

1plungeFather is called Father because He is Father of creation, Father of the. Cosmos and Father of you and your Family. To be a son/ daughter is to be linked to the reason and purpose of the universe and at home in your real home that is Fathers heart.

The Son of God entered the world to fulfil Adam’s mandate to be fruitful and multiply, the sons of God as Seward of creation. The trinity is relentless in continuing the plan – to share what they have with sons.

The crux of the new creation is the revelation of Fathers fatherhood and the establishment of sons in their inheritance and identity as the sons of God in spirit and in truth. This has happened by rooting them not in a abstractions or formulations of the knowledge of good and evil, but in God Himself through Jesus.

Because we are hidden in Christ we are openly joined to God as sons.

This is the source of our sonship, spirit-life, authority and humanity. It is also the reason for and the source of our life ‘in the Spirit’ which is a description of our life as sons.

One cannot be tied to the law, old covenant or a religious identity and be a son of God in fullness. The spirit without limit comes from our life in Father as does the anointing and the gifts. Charismata cannot be reliable or sufficient to live in the Spirit, which is an abridged wording of the spirit of sonship. Holy Spirit will enlarge Christ and our Father. He will never foster a regime of law plus spirit or a mixture of flesh and God. At the least Jesus will not let such a union flourish. Alternatively he will root it out.

Life in churchianity, law or old covenant cannot grow the Kingdom. It does not take root in it. Only when Christ is our life are we competent to minister the kingdom of heaven Into earth and then with all authority and not as the scribes and teachers of the law. Not only does Jesus call us to examine ourselves. We are called to critique our basic assumptions. Some of us have lived our entire lives affixed to erroneous assumptions and theologies. When Christ lives In us we  are freed to live in the gospel of the Kingdom. All others are counterfeit and diminish our being, hinder our identity and smother our ability to be the free spirits we were recreated to be interwoven with the being of God.

We can take Bible studies, give sermons and teach from our being or from a part of our being. To speak and minister in the Spirit is to be entirely oneself hidden and one with the person of Father. We are in this state of being in Jesus – never in Adam, the law or the old covenant. Here we are fractured, separated from Father and from ourselves – no matter how sincere we may be, how much we love Jesus or Spirit-filled we may be. Many Spirit-filled people have a level of anointing but are not living in the Spirit. Nor are they one with Father and sons in the fullest sense. They adhere to a try harder gospel and live a substantially old covenant life – with Jesus help! As a result the water flowing from their being is a drip rather than a river.

Jesus said, ‘Out of your being will come ‘rivers of living water.’ There’s a lot in the word ‘being.’ It’s about our essence and nature. We need to know who we are and live in it. This is why Satan attempted to dislodge Jesus from His real identity as son of God. If he could have done this, the plan of salvation would have been compromised. If somehow Jesus could have been persuaded to live out of a vision that cast Him as less than who He was, the restoration of the sons of God would have been incapable of fulfilment.

It’s a fact that humans become who they think they are. This is why truth and vision are important enough to be fought for, to die for and to live from. The Kingdom of God is compromised when we live from less than who we are and when we adhere to an inferior gospel to the gospel of the Kingdom.

Living from a mis-informed identity smothers our being. This is why there is power in right believing and living from correct theology, also known as sound doctrine. To live from Jesus, from what God has done in Him and and to be aligned with this gospel in spirit and truth is to be kings under the King and priests of the new covenant. Unless we are so aligned, the identity of sons, the fullness of Christ and the power of the Kingdom to be the new creation is compromised. Drips of water come from our being because we have a limited being, a small stature and only scraps of the Kingdom of God. But when one with God in His gospel of the Kingdom, we have that being that is described as sons. Anything less and we are workers, slaves and people of limited being and limited Kingdom influence. Live from where you are – in Father and as son!

Flow of the Spirit

Mission trips are revealing in more ways than one. On can see the mighty works of God and one can also see our personal need for grace. If working with a team in close proximity, things about our personal carnality may be revealed that we did not know were there. Thinking of selfishness and petulance here. Or being thin skinned.It takes much grace to work with others effectively – more grace than in daily routines where we are on our own or with our own.

I once worked on a mission trip with a person who unwittingly represented the Jezebel spirit. Mission trips for such are about themselves and their need to control. Despite themselves, they live to shut down the anointing and promote themselves. It pays to do your homework before a trip. Holy Spirit talk can mask a need to control.

Holy Spirit brings us the presence of Jesus and the Holy Family. They are all for one and one for all. Unity, diversity and love –  they are community itself. Workable community is not a machination. It is the presence of Christ in us. Christ not as a construct but as The Jesus who lives in us. 

We are on safe ground in the fullness of Jesus. Not so much in a limited Jesus. I’m referring to the limited kinds of Jesus that arose in the United States in the 19th century and before. Some proffered lesser Christs, others false Christs and some “other gospels.” Most of the Awakenings operated in ignorance of the new covenant and what the cross, resurrection and Pentecost mean for our lives. The meaning is the simple really: Christ is totally our life and His ministry is vicarious and vicariously unlimited. This is undergirded by the fact and efficacy of the incarnation – Christ in us as our glory and the Kingdom revealed in people. Today much of the church operates in a poor mans view of the new covenant. This leaves us with less than the riches of Christ and an inheritance of sonship  that is largely yet to be realised.

We have seen many healings on this trip. Many diseases are psycho-somatic in origin and linked to the stresses of life. Financial and marriage stress can manifest as symptoms in our bodies. It is not a diminution of Gods power to claim these as healings. He is life. Others are related to bacteria. Others are just dis-ease as in the opposite to health and ease. Some result from the failure of organs or the loss of them. We have seen restorative and creative miracles this trip. Rose, whose hand was immobilised from the age of two had complete freedom of movement restored. Jesus uses us to heal despite our theology. We can heal because we trust in Jesus – irrespective of our bad theology. Sometimes Jesus uses cessationists despite themselves. However Jesus desires that we live in the fullness of His Kingdom- not some robbed and defective kingdom formed from old covenant assumptions.

I have observed some specious kinds of theology that limit our sonship, our authority and leave us less than we are. Grace enables us to minister the life of Jesus, even if we are living in a lesser covenant and a lesser Jesus. Sometimes. But there is liberty and power in truth. Fullness for all is His desire. Jesus is not satisfied with even the smell of death. There is no room for even a smidgeon of death in a gospel that promotes life to the full. So don’t make a life out of rationalising disfunction. Some always have ‘good’ reasons for rationalising death.

Jesus is not a clever way of doing the law or performance or religion. He is Gods way of replicating Himself in you! Signs and the healing of diseases is a parable of Jesus intention to heal a life and to heal the world. Healing is the sign and evidence of new creation life.

Lives are healed. We are made whole when we live in the holistic gospel of Jesus the person. There is no life in the letter or the law or its modern equivalent-all the things Christians should do. Either Christ is our life or we are – in which case we are instruments of death.

Jesus is not effective as a life-giver because He was born of the Spirit, baptised in the Spirit and ministered in the Spirit. He ministered as His Fathers Son, in union with Father and the apostolic expression of His Father. Jesus and Father are one. The new covenant enant gives us the same status.

Our new covenant gift is that we and Father are one. We have Jesus union with God. By right. Our death to Adam, to Moses and the law has occurred in Jesus. We are alive in the anointing as Sons because now we are the sons of God- in spirit and in truth.The infinite life of God is also ours in Jesus. God is the ground of our being, the reason for our sonship and the glory of our person. The anointing and baptism of the Spirit is the authentication of our sonship and authority as sons. It is the tree that grows from our new covenant life – if we are participating in the new covenant and not glued to the old.

On the old we do not live in the spirit because we do not live in the Son. We are attempting to live in the law and religion. The law produces a rational-legal mode opposed to the Spirit of life. Captured in the letter we will imagine that life is found in the quoting of texts and the citing of references. But it is not. We will think that life comes from the quoting of text. In new via enant mode you are the life – because the life has become you!

This life and light is found in the spirit of revelation that fills you and ignites the word. Read in the old covenant the Bible is the letter. In the new covenant it is the living word and Spirit.

In the Kingdom an action is not right because it is in the Bible. It is right and life-giving because it is in God and one with God. Truth is not alive because it is true. It is alive because it is our life in God. This is the difference between the kingdom and life in the knowledge of good and evil with Jesus added. The difference between the two is the difference between Adam and Jesus light and darkness, religion and life.

There is a flow about words and action in the Spirit that is succinct and powerful, casting down false doctrine and embedded Christian myths. Such a witness is sharp and powerful because it is delivered in the weakness of the Spirit rather than the strength of the letter and the flesh. The old covenant binds us to the flesh and what Jesus called, ‘your law.’ The new covenant liberates us to be ourselves by binding us in union with the son of man and his law of the spirit of life. 

We can’t speak spirit and life if our feet are in the old covenant even if our head is in the Holy Spirit. The two do not mix because we cannot serve too masters. But in Christ we are the one new man. The man who is whole in Jesus; the man who is free and who sets sons and daughters free because he and Christ are one.

 

 

IDENTITY AND AUTHORITY

We have the capacity to impart life. This is a human capacity greatly enhanced when we are one with the son of man. This oneness has been gifted to us in the incarnation and the ministry of Holy Spirit. Our main life-multiplying capacity arises from our rootedness in our Father, through Jesus. This is the ground of the gifts. The gifts are not the ground of sonship. Sonship is the garden from which the gifts grow. Thus it is important that we have fullness of sonship rather than the limited sonship of old covenant assumptions. We cannot live from such a mind-set and be apostolic. Neither can we be an apostle of the Kingdom if we have not embraced the new and living way of the new covenant.

Jesus represented Father, unveiled Him and fulfilled his mission because he was one with the father. Not because He had the anointing and was baptised in the Spirit. The latter was a function of the former.

Some are apostles. All are meant to be apostolic in being and function. Jesus was the expression of our Father and represented Him as His Son. So to do we. If we are living in our new covenant spirit of sonship and union with Father in Jesus Christ.

We are competent to minister the Kingdom in new covenant mode. Here we are the multiplication of Jesus and representatives of our Father as sons. To be a son of Father is to be established as Fathers in the church Jesus builds. Fathers are simply people who are sons whether men or women. Fathers are matured sons and never cease being sons.

Apostolic ministry is new covenant ministry. Grounded  in the person of Jesus it has no attachment to the law, but is entirely rooted and  immersed in Jesus and the life of the trinity. Kingdom life flows from persons and spirit. Never from abstractions and injunctions like law. As such genuine apostolic ministry is personal, communal, authoritative and flowing with spirit and life. A Jesus life is life in our Father more than life in the gifts. Thanks to Jesus we are one with our Father. The bottom line is that Jesus  is our life. The KINDOM is less about the cross and more about His life as ours continuously.

Jesus overflows with grace. One can minister spots and drips of His life,clogged with old covenant assumptions. But not in fullness. Due to grace we can do a modicum for God with sincere hearts even if our light has been dimmed by a truncated gospel. Jesus does minister from folks in spiritual wheel chairs. But His liberty is always found in the fullness of truth. His aim is to have us grow into the fullness of Himself. He aims to reveal his glory. Not our wheel chair.

The anointing, the gifts, Spirit baptism are not what made Jesus mighty. It was the anointing that flowed from His obedient sonship that set Him apart as a life-giver. You need to know that life in the Spirit cannot be bolted on to old covenant Christianity and can never be the gospel of the Kingdom.

Some lack spiritual discernment by nature. Others because they are tied to the old covenant and have an extra-Jesus identity. It is important to discern the flesh from the kingdom because this is the difference between holding conferences and multiplying spirit and life.

As sons we are apostolic avenues of the personal life of Jesus. As servants and slaves we are limited and bound in mediocrity and religiosity. This is what Paul means about the slave woman and the free woman in Galatians. The sons of the former do not live in the inheritance that is theirs. They are  tied to the law by doctrine or to a try harder mentality by habit or the culture of institutionalism. The Christian Industry has a vested interest dependency creation and consumer Christianity. Find community with the sons of God and live in what you already have- a secure place in Fathers heart and presence. There’s no such thing as McChurch in the Kingdom. But those who eat and drink the Son of Man are spirit and life to a dying world.

In old covenant mode Christ is not your life but the means to your life. In the new He is your life. He is you! Thus you are the expression of Him and the reality of His glory where you are.

Christ your life is His Kingdom where you are.

 

 

Acts of the Apostles

Some are apostles. All are meant to be apostolic in being and function. Jesus was the expression of our Father and represented Him as His Son. So to do we. If we are living in our new covenant spirit of sonship and union with Father in Jesus Christ.

We are competent to minister the Kingdom in new covenant mode. Here we are the multiplication of Jesus and representatives of our Father as sons. To be a son of Father is to be fitted as Fathers in the church Jesus builds. Fathers are simply people who are sons whether men or women.

Apostolic ministry is new covenant ministry. Grounded  in the person of Jesus it has no attachment to the law but is entirely rooted and  immersed in Jesus and the life of the trinity. As such apostolic ministry is personal, communal, authoritative and flowing with spirit and life.

Apostolic ministry knows no identity other than Jesus.

Jesus overflows with grace. One can minister spots and drips of His life clogged with old covenant assumptions. But not fullness. Due to grace we can do a modicum for God with sincere hearts even if our light has been dimmed by a truncated gospel. Jesus does minister from folks in spiritual wheel chairs. But His liberty is always found in the fullness of truth.

National or church culture is a reason for spiritual dullness. It is not an excuse. All have access to the torch and the sword.

As sons we are apostolic avenues of the personal life of Jesus. As servants and slaves we are limited and bound in mediocrity and religiosity. This is what Paul means about the slave woman and the free woman in Galatians. The sons of the former do not live in the inheritance that is theirs. They are  tied to the law by doctrine or to a try harder mentality by habit or the culture of institutionalism. The Christian Industry has a vested interest in dependency creation and consumer Christianity. Find community with the sons of God and live in what you already have- a secure place in Fathers heart and presence.

In old covenant mode Christ is not your life but the means to your life. In the new He is your life. He is you! Thus you are the expression of Him and the reality of His glory where you are. You see with the eyes of the living word who cuts through religious rationalisations and embedded obfuscation. You do not work in a fog. You have the light of life. You are not a dull instrument. You are sharp, powerful and alive. Because Christ, not the stuff, is your life.

 

SPIRIT AND LIFE

I didn’t always believe in healing. I thought I had good reason not to. My Father died of cancer when I was five. This left me more bitter  than I realized. By the time I was twenty I was what a lecturer called‘ a born cynic.’ Except cynics were not born. Just deeply hurt.

So I  did not have a high view of God. For what he had not done. And because I was raised in a home where the law was held to be the Centre of the universe and the seventh-day Sabbath the evidence that you are keeping it. You can’t keep the law of course. No one can but Sabbath observance gives you the illusion that you are and to that extent it is a false Christ. So we had this Sabbath hanging round our necks like a dead albatross, a God and Jesus who was under the law – he had to be because he lived to support it, so Sister White would have it. Jesus did what He did to support the Sabbath we were told in D of A. Note: this is quite a load of cods wallop. There is no Bible evidence for this at all. Jesus lived to reveal His Father and lived from his father. There was no law mongering about him. Had Jesus been a son of the law he could offer neither salvation or life. Thankfully Jesus was under nothing and He placed the law and Satan under his feet. This paves the way for all of us to live in His Spirit. This us where healing begins.

In any case we heard little about Jesus. There is a  book called Steps To Christ. It started off in brightness and hope in the possibilities of Christ, then took a downward path into performance and law. This pretend Christian teaching clothing death in the words of life was the bane of my childhood and the seed of my belief that if God was good He was not that good and was rather mean and demanding. If you wanted a good dose of austerity religion and a perverse gospel with all the good parts ripped out of it, then Adventism was the way to go. It is really a pseudo- Christianity that pays lip service to Christ and advocates salvation by Adventism.

Father is better than most Christians think and certainly much better than I was  used to thinking. Jesus is neither religious or austere. He is life and love Himself. To see Jesus  is to see our Father. The law is incapable of revealing Jesus. Only Jesus can reveal The Father and only Jesus can impart life. To live in the law is to be a fish in a goldfish bowl viewing the world through a distorted lens. To look through the Jesus lens is to be a son of God  and see in spirit and in truth.

The law cannot heal. I have seen deeply wounded people come into the Spirit and the gifts but remain emotionally diseased because they persisted in old covenant law-mongering. This separates from Jesus, denying the healing we so desperately need. It’s all or nothing with Jesus. You can’t retain an identity that you think gives you some status and security. You cannot hold onto your ideas and imagine that you will get the mind of Christ. There is no is home and revelation for you in the law- only blind siding to the truth that Christ plus nothing is your life. Or blindness to the fact that you imagine Christ is your life yet attempt to use Him to keep the law. There is a law but it is Jesus and not Moses,or the expectations of Christianity. He is the law of the Spirit of life which is a person through and through.

You are a most unwise person if you are led to believe that Adventism is an improvement on the gospel of the truth. It is a cunningly woven fable.

It amazes me that former lecturers and  several of my friends, all with doctorates have swallowed the perverse gospel of Adventism. Intelligence is no defence against false doctrine. The source of all that is right and true is the spirit of wisdom and revelation that is ours when Christ is our life rather than the old covenant or a religious identity, or an alternate gospel with a deviant cosmology. We can make of ourselves a good cripple in the old covenant mind-set but we cannot become sons in spirit and in truth, because we have not been healed and remain slaves,workers and hard of hearing. There is a reason old covenant ministries fade or just stumble on as something and nothing. Un-joined to Father we have no spirit or life. We speak information that is a river of sand and don’t even know that we are a sincere but boring hack and an obstruction to the new creation.

A colleague once remarked to me, ‘We are quite different people.’ And so we are, but the major difference in our being and out ministry had nothing to do with personality. It is entirely to do with being. She lived in the old covenant and I live in the new. The result of this is healing for the eyes and heart. In the old covenant we see trees moving. In the new we see things as they are.

 

 

UP TO DATE WITH WHAT FATHER HAS DONE

We need to know that we are not living Christianity because we are not living a religion. The person of Jesus is living us. This is the meaning of Pauls words, ‘Christ your life.’ The spirit of Jesus as you; the person of Jesus as the church is a fire that will not be put out.

Our message in India has been that the real gospel of the Kingdom is Christ come in the flesh. Anything less than this is demonic in origin. Christ our life is our peace, personal holiness and authority to do His works. Because he is our life in spirit and in truth we are one with our Father. We do what He is  doing- naturally and without contrivance we are in the flow of the river of life that is personal and life-giving.

The Kingdom of God no longer advances from Sabbaths or temple. It expands from Christ in you. Old covenant living will dull your being in the same way that Hinduism has dulled a nation. Old covenant belief is more confused, more verbose, and innately religious- as compared to the clarity and power of  new covenant competence.The fact that God will grace us in our ignorance is no excuse to continue in a lesser life.

In the old covenant we may give a Bible study on the Spririt of Sonship. But we remain in the shadow of the reality. In the new covenant we are sons. We witness sonship in spirit and in truth. Strictly speaking, ‘now we are the sons of God’ is not our possssion in the old covenant mindset. We need the mind of Christ and his union with Father. But this is not ours in the law and in Adam.

The old covenant died when Jesus put Adam to death at the cross. The new covenant came into being when Jesus rose on Sunday. The age of separation, bifurcation, compartmentalizations has been over for more than 2000 years. Don’t live in what God did not mean to last and what He no longer endorses. Jesus Christ is all and in all. He, not your efforts, work for Him, church involvement- that pile of religious stuff that Paul calls rubbish and dung – Jesus is totally your life, makes you totally who you are meant to be and a vessel who carries the water of life.

The Kingdom of God realized  is Christ as us all. Christ our life is His kingdom in the world. You are in dwelt, empowered and endorsed to be Jesus multiplied where you are.
