But upon mount zion there shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. Obadiah 1:17
This simply means what belong to us will be given us because there is deliverance and holiness in display. And do you know that the devil is not holding any of our possession in his hands anymore? Jesus had collected all from him, publicly disgracing him. So from who is our possession again? Paul speaking
In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. Eph 1:13-14.
So the devil isn’t owing us anything but in God there is more to possess. The devil is a dry headed guy, no power no oil nothing to bully us anymore but God still has things to show both you and I.
Mystery in Holiness
Holiness is a relational display of righteousness. Many of us are too rigid for God to play with us. You don’t smile with him, you don’t play with him, and we are too difficult to approach. Am talking about God has a lover not as a father; we are too tense for him to behold the beauty in our face. He is not ashamed of anybody but want us to be attractive. Holiness is not a gift rather a display of the fullness of righteousness that we inherited in Christ. Holiness is a practical intimacy with God, a romantic life that attracts God towards your life. The way you twist your spiritual body (born again life), the way you compose your words towards him, greasing your feet and head with oil. I mean the environment you create for him literally invites him from his throne for a spiritual intercourse because he is a lover and understood the game.
The finished work of Christ is the infilling of his nature in us, that nature that attracts God towards Christ. Don’t forget his word “thou lovest righteousness and hated wickedness therefore God thy God hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows Ps 45:7” The father loves the son because he understood how to attract the father. So the nature of Christ was given us because the father knew Jesus’ nature satisfies him completely and thought of seeing that nature display in different pattern. That nature isn’t given us for confessional use because he knew the nature already nor for bragging to the devil but for adequate intimacy with the father without stress. Righteousness is actually the love nature of God, a relationship body he loves so much.
I remembered how I use to go alone, sit down and be throwing stones, telling him I will not play with him again maybe I read a particular scripture and I don’t understand it. I will set my physical eye to match my inner eye like leave me alone attitude of a girl to a man she loves. Before you know it am crying and using my hands to wipe it. Oh my God, that thing has never failed in getting his attention, his presence will fill my heart everywhere will be cold and a sudden joy will arose in my heart. The next thing I will hear is what do you want? I don’t like you crying. I will just tell him I don’t understand this subject of the scripture or teaching and few weeks after the understanding will come fully.
No more condemnation
This was what brought there is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after flesh, but after the spirit. Rom 8:1. But unfortunately many of us are turned this passage to confession again. You see if you don’t understand the relationship pattern of what righteousness brought you will always have condemnation in your heart no matter the confession. That’s why the bible says love covereth all sins. Say it again to yourself love covereth all my sins. I don’t know how to explain these things to you because it’s the real thing we all should dive into. Am so free with God like anything, if you see the way I talk to God sometimes you might think it’s extreme but we both are use to that kind of life.
Without love relationship in expression in your Christian walk you have missed the all show. All this sin and sin liberation is not the main thing of the cross, the love aspect of relating to the father is what settles the matter once and for all. Christianity is so simple, you don’t have to worry yourself about anything. Just walk up to him and start expressing your heart that’s all. There is no body that can condemn me in heaven or earth course if I report you to my lover woo (see) you will buy job for yourself. Stop peeping into my Christian life (liberty) but our attitudes can be corrected ok. Correction and chastisement is part of love and that deals with attitudes, don’t let any preacher tells you Jesus is your attitude grace covers it. That’s a lie ok, such teaching are extreme of grace teachings. God can use anyone or anything to correct us ok, it’s part of love. I will talk better on this ok.
This is the thing that gives us confidence when we make mistakes here on earth, this is what tells us that we are not candidate of hell. Sorry to say I have never thought of hell in my life. What am I going to be doing there? Am not confessing it and am saying I know what am saying. Am too romantic for God to send me to hell, he will fetch me out of there but he knows what he will miss. I love him so much yes i do. Do you love him too? then start practicing it.
