The Lord says: If you LOVE ME, then you abide IN ME…


“If you LOVE ME, then you abide IN ME, and I in YOU.  YOU will read and absorb the WORD, because MY SPIRIT is in you to help you as a teacher.  He brings understanding and wisdom to you so that you will learn the principles I teach all who are Mine, bit by bit, tailor-made to your own person, and experience.

I AM IN YOU.  YOU ARE My temple!  So if you live and have your being IN ME, then you are seated in heavenly places, and you can see things from MY perspective about your life, about the lives of others, and about things going on around you in the world.  Each person may get a different piece of the puzzle of information.  But all have some understanding that when fitted together would make the whole photo more complete.

YOU cannot fight without MY WORD.  If you refuse to eat the scroll, then you will not have the wisdom, power and authority you need to grapple with demons . You will not have enough discernment either.  How can you distinguish good from evil without KNOWING what is good, or what is the real thing.

If you never saw a dollar bill and someone handed you one, you would be confused and not understand it’s significance, unless you were taught.  If a person disregards MY WORD so much that they don’t care to read it, how can they know the truth that sets them free?

You are only freed by the truth you UNDERSTAND and RECOGNIZE.  That IS the Holy Spirit’s work.”

“But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law”    Hebrews 5:14 AMP.

“Now when they bring you to the synagogues and magistrates and authorities, do not worry about how or what you should answer, or what you should say. 12 For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say”    Luke 12:11-12 NKJ.V

“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever — the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you”    John 14:16-17 NKJV.

  1. John 15:1-8 (NKJV)

    The True Vine
    15 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
    5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
