COMPLETE IN HIM

For the past few months I have found myself praying in the Spirit concerning this topic. The truth is I have not how or for what to pray. Holy Spirit has been addressing the questions of my heart and this writing will speak to some answers that I have been receiving. The following is what I am presently seeing and hearing about our completeness in HIM. The questions of my heart revolved around the reality of the absence of power and authority that we are currently experiencing. The modern-day Ekklesia is suffering from a serious shortage of power and our spiritual signature appears to be getting weaker. In a time when we cannot afford to be devoid of power, we need to seriously consider the long-term effect of our prolonged condition and what it will mean to future generations if we flat-line. This is a CODE-BLUE moment for those of us who are awake, aware and on active duty.

Things to consider: The following passage of Scripture contains some elements that have been spoken, are speaking and will speak to the Ekklesia over the centuries. I believe that we can locate ourselves in the Ekklesia of ‘Brotherly Love’ where we will find ourselves severely weakened due to the reality that the adversary has exploited every opportunity to take advantage of our ignorance, fear and disobedience. He has also kept us troubled, beat-down and distracted by hardship and persecution. He has worked through religion and politics to keep us separated, segregated and divided. The defeated one knows that if we ever come into agreement around the prayer of Yahshua in John 17 that the world is going to know that Yahshua is come and that Yahweh sent Him to save the world. He is also fully aware of the POWER of AGREEMENT and what it means for us to be UNITED. We are living in a time when we must pull down the strong-holds of human reasoning that have been primarily responsible for creating barriers, boundaries and buttresses between those who would make up the Global, National and Regional community of believers.

Revelation 3: 7 “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, ‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”: “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Behold, I am coming quickly!

Note: Holy Spirit recently spoke to me and and said, “because you have kept my Word, I will Keep you no matter what comes.” As I pondered what He was saying to me, I heard my Spirit say back to Him, “I really have not kept that much; but you have surely kept me all these years.” His love and grace is beyond comprehension.

Note: Please bear with me as I point out a real nugget contained in this passage of Scripture. Remember, this letter was written to the Ekklesia of ‘Brotherly Love’ and there is no way of knowing exactly when it was delivered. My point is, part of the promise that Holy Spirit made to the Ekklesia of ‘Brotherly Love’ was that HE was coming quickly. One might suppose that either Yahshua was mistaken or He misspoke about His return. However, I do not believe for a minute that He was mistaken or misspoke because He has, is and will come to us in the future. He came to His disciples after His resurrection and appeared to 500 plus people over an extended period of time. There were eye-witnesses to his coming, appearing and ascending. There is no doubt in my mind that He returned a second time in the form of HOLY SPIRIT on the Day of Pentecost. That day, His Ekklesia was born and His Kingdom was established forever.

Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My Elohim, (Yahweh) and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My Elohim (Yahweh) and the name of the city of My Elohim, (Yahweh) the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My Elohim. (Yahweh) And I will write on him My new name. (Yahshua)

On June 14, 2015, I will be entering into my 45th year of service to the King and I cannot remember a time that I questioned the validity of the Scripture or what Holy Spirit is saying. I have had questions for which I sought answers; but as of late, I have found myself questioning things that should be our present reality.

Questions: 1). When is the last time we saw someone come to a saving knowledge of the truth based on our personal testimony or witness? 2). When is the last time we healed the sick, raised the dead or cast out devils? 3). For that matter, how long has it been since we saw a supernatural intervention of any kind? 4). If healing and deliverance are not a part of the full comprehensive plan of salvation, then how can we trust the coverage at any level?

Ephesians 1:3-6 Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Sovereign Yahshua Messiah who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Messiah, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Yahshua Messiah to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

{We are the blessed, chosen and holy sons of Yahweh, who have inherited every spiritual blessing in heavenly places and we are accepted in the beloved}

Ephesians 2:4-7 But Yahweh, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Messiah (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Messiah Yahshua, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Messiah Yahshua.

{He made us alive together. He raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in Messiah Yahshua}

Philippians 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Yahshua Messiah;

{The work that He has begun in us will not be completed until the Daystar arises in our hearts, and we come into a better understanding of the finished work of Yahshua, as well as the consummation of all things} 2 Peter 1:18-20

Colossians 2:9-11 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Messiah,

Colossians 2:10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. ESV

{Understanding who we are in Him together is the consummation of all things, the fellowship of the brotherhood, and the mystery revealed. We are the body of Messiah, the bright and Morning Star. We are the fullness of Messiah to this generation, and we are making known the manifold wisdom of Yahweh to the principalities and powers in heavenly places. Our corporate expression is a testimony of the resurrection power of Yahshua, and it is a witness against the forces of darkness. Our very presence is a reminder that their reign has ended, and the day of Yahshua (the SON) is come. We are complete in Him}

Note; Salvation, Healing and Deliverance are a part of the full comprehensive plan of salvation. If healing and deliverance are not a part of the plan, then how can we truly trust the coverage at any level? (We can’t)

However, everything we need can and will be discovered in the body of Messiah. We cannot be made whole or complete apart from the body of Messiah, the corporate SON, the many-membered MAN. Simply put, we need one another in order to glorify Him in the all the earth, and thereby fulfill the practical will and purpose of Yahweh for our lives.

We are living in a time when we must begin to realize that we are not directly connected to the head of the Ekklesia. Yahshua is the head of the Ekklesia and we are a part of His body. His head is not sitting on each of our shoulders and unless we find one another in Him we will eventually die alienated and isolated from Him and His people. Failing to properly discern the body of Messiah will result in more weakness, sickness and death. We can no longer afford to partake of His body and blood in a way that dishonors the communion we have in Him.

Colossians 2: 8-10 watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that’s not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything. TMGB

II Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of Yahweh, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of Yahweh may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Hebrews 13:20-21 Now may the Elohim of peace who brought up our Sovereign Yahshua from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Yahshua Messiah, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

James 1:2-4 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
