Your identity in Christ Jesus is through the grace of God, whereby you are in the immersion of that grace, which comes through the righteousness of Christ. That baptism Christ Jesus was consecrated unto and through in Matthew 3:11-17 reveals the fullness by which he brought into earth.
“11 I indeed baptize you in (with) water because of repentance [that is, because of your changing your minds for the better, heartily amending your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins]. But He Who is coming after me is mightier than I, Whose sandals I am not worthy or fit to take off or carry; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. 12 His winnowing fan (shovel, fork) is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear out and clean His threshing floor and gather and store His wheat in His barn, but the chaff He will burn up with fire that cannot be put out. 13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John to be baptized by him. 14 But John protested strenuously, having in mind to prevent Him, saying, It is I who have need to be baptized by You, and do You come to me? 15 But Jesus replied to him, Permit it just now; for this is the fitting way for [both of] us to fulfill all righteousness [that is, to perform completely whatever is right]. Then he permitted Him. 16 And when Jesus was baptized, He went up at once out of the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he [John] saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on Him. 17 And behold, a voice from heaven said, This is My Son, My Beloved, in Whom I delight!” Matthew 3:11-17 AMP.
This righteousness of Christ Jesus brings forth the open heavens, whereby the Father’s delight is bestowed, His eyes are ever upon that place which has become His delight, His Eden. Eden in Hebrew means delight and was the garden, framework, by which He constituted man; man would forever be the delight of God! Satan battles you at the point of knowing that you are the Father’s delight and thereby your walk in the righteousness of Christ Jesus through the accusations of the slanderer.
Do not give ear to that voice, because it is the voice of a stranger. The only voice you are to listen to is the voice of the good shepherd, the Father’s word. Through the voice of Jesus Christ you hear the father clearly by Holy Spirit who speaks the message of God.
As the baptism of God’s fire and Holy Spirit continue to increase upon you throughout your life, you will be purged in greater measure and threshed, only to discover the greater grace that awaits to flood you and fill you, causing you to be enveloped in the love of the living God.
Through this process of growing strong in spirit and walking with God, finding a deeper friendship as you are the bride of Christ Jesus, you will discover the deep mysteries untold, causing you to know the father more. This love of the Father revealed through the mysteries He gives to His friends, whereby unveiling His secrets in the secret place of thunder, causes you to rejoice in knowing all along God has been refining you for the position of a greater grace whereby you will be a greater servant in His Kingdom.
This, saints of God, is the place of understanding. This is the place of wisdom. This place is priceless and cannot be bought with gold nor silver. It cannot be bought with diamonds or sapphires, for it is the place in which grace lifts you by the power of the precious blood of the lamb, which has redeemed you thereby redeeming the time, only display your future through the glory of the living God.
Walking in greater grace allows you to bear greater persecution through the yoke of Christ Jesus. As you walk in God’s grace, the righteousness of Christ Jesus is delivered unto you in greater measure as the Father blesses you with more of His son, because there is more room in your person. You are like a wine skin that has been stretched through the trials and tribulation,s to receive more of that righteousness that has all power and authority through Christ to overcome every dis-ease, mental die-agging-nosis, threat of the bowels of hell and every torment that would come your way.
The enemy started tormenting Jesus when he saw the Father’s works displayed through Him, revealing ‘I AM.’ The revealing of ‘I AM,’ who is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, is the greatest torment of all to Satan. This display of ‘I AM’ through Jesus Christ is what began the torment of the enemy against his person, what began the great persecution.
What is incredible is that persecution in Greek breaks down to the format of revealing someone who follows the commands of their master, running the errands of the one who sent them to execute it fully. This is what torments the devil. The devil is not tormented by someone who quits boot camp. The devil is tormented by someone who finishes boot camp and moreover goes further in even becoming a spiritual navy seal, someone in special forces. As the military goes higher in rank and skill, it only takes a fewer number of warriors to deliver the blow of a battalion.
This is what Satan dreads, you delivering the message of the father by the spirit of The Lord as you do his works to set the captives free, bind up the broken hearted, deliver a garment of praise, and opening up dungeons. This is someone who no matter what comes will execute the assignment by the power of god, knowing that it is their chief commander (Jesus Christ) who gives them power and might by God’s Holy Spirit revealed in the power of that word.
When you walk in this anointing that destroys yokes of oppression and torments the enemy, the devil sets you up to be on his hit list of torment. This is when you know truly you are persecuted for righteousness, for doing the works of the Father. The works of the Father overturns a system of dead works that feels as though there is a competition over the territory and who gets all the trophies. That is what the pharisees were threatened by. They were threatened by the greater works, the works of the father that Jesus walked in which dismantled the legal system judging man forever separating man from God.
Jesus brought the house of grace and delivered works only through the father’s grace, great love, which drove out the enemy in great torment. This jealousy caused the pharisees to gnash their teeth.
Rejoice when you find the enemy doing the same against you whereby others try to compete and one up you, persecute you saying you are doing the work of Satan, call you names slandering you constantly and forever making it a point to throw fiery darts at your person. This result is due to the fact that you are a seal of God, displaying His approval upon your person, whereby when you open your mouth it hits the target of the devil, taking him out. This intimidates the gates of hell.
“10 Blessed and happy and enviably fortunate and spiritually prosperous (in the state in which the born-again child of God enjoys and finds satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of his outward conditions) are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake (for being and doing right), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven! 11 Blessed (happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of your outward conditions) are you when people revile you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil things against you falsely on My account. 12 Be glad and supremely joyful, for your reward in heaven is great (strong and intense), for in this same way people persecuted the prophets who were before you” Matthew 5:10-12 AMP.
