Looking For " Some-One”


Isn’t in interesting that God our Father is dealing in direct proportion, going to the depth of the ingrained habitual sin habit pattern in our lives?
There is a potent innate desire within the very spiritual DNA of our make up that spells out how He wants to make known to us experientially that there is a way of escape from those ingrained sin habit patterns that have imprisoned us all.
“If death got the upper hand through one man's wrongdoing, can you imagine the breathtaking recovery life makes, sovereign life, in those who grasp with both hands this wildly extravagant life-gift, this grand setting-everything-right, that the one man Jesus Christ provides?”

“For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.”
Before anyone says, Rich, you’re too sin focused, let me clarify that, “Anything not done out of faith, IS sin!”

Most of “Christendom” has been operating out of and from a natural soulish stance, you know, that which is but the meager remnants of the first Adam, purely soulish, with no imparting (quickening) power.
For those being extricated from the corrupting toxic pollution of the Religious Matrix many are experiencing for maybe the first time in their lives the serious withdrawals (the D T’s) of being all on their own, with no other mediator between them and God the Father except for the man, Christ Jesus.

So many are crying out to the Lord in the abyss of their intensified loneliness, isolation, being as it were cut off from those who use to tell them everything they needed to do and know.
It would ‘appear’ that God has answered their cry for bread with a stone, or a snake or scorpion instead of some mouth watering morsel.
Is He really neglecting us, or is He actually using this pain filled season in our lives to cause a further expansion, enlargement from within for the needed and required preparation for the unfolding revelation of “Who’s we are and out of that Who we are!”

I do NOT apologize for the repeated redundancy of this statement, “It’s NOT a seminar, it’s a revelation!”
There is so much engendering Father is bringing to pass in my journey with Himself, at times I feel much like a very pregnant woman about to explode.

In the heart beat of a moment in being received by God the Father we instantly became His 4-ever child, but that is so far from His ultimate purpose and intention for us individually or collectively. His intension is to move us in and through grace, to become fully mature Son’s!!!
I want to encourage you to NOT settle for the good at the risk of it turning out to be the enemy of His best for you in Christ.
