Oh how the soul longs to come into contact and have true fellowship with God the Creator and Father to receive the fullness of His divine nature, the true substance of hope and glory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Just as Jesus taught His apostles that “I and my Father are one” in John10:30 so also are we joined as one with Christ through faith in the covenant of His blood. By this covenant contact with Him we are separated from darkness to prepare us as over comers for our eternal entrance into the glory of His throne.  

Now is the time appointed by God, the Second8th Week of righteousness, to have the vessels of clay go through cleansing and purging by serving the living God through the priesthood of fath to receive a new life. Apostle Paul taught all believers that the body is now the temple of the Holy Spirit, 1Corinthians 6:19 “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you whom you have from God and you are not your own.” For all those who receive the testimony of Jesus Christ are sealed into a covenant of promise for heir ship and son ship with God through the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

God’s desire from the beginning was and still is to dwell within the vessels of clay to sanctify us unto Himself for a divine purpose of adoption as sons of His mercy and grace through covenant faith. Jesus Christ also demonstrated this as He chased away moneychangers from the temple in Jerusalem, showing us that by His presence in the vessel of clay through the Holy Ghost He will remove all that defiles the soul of man to make us equal to Himself by the pattern He set for our overcoming self, the world and the devil.

This Jesus also addressed with the Pharisees in Matthew 23:25”Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess” showing that the First covenant of the Law of Moses was only given to cleanse the outer part of the vessel and could not purgethe conscience of sin and pointing to Himself as the one to cleanse the inner, purify the conscience of sin through the law of grace and truth, saying “Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.”

This He accomplished by His death and resurrection to bring about through His precious blood a new and a better covenant. Those whose faith is sealed into a covenant with God become partakers of the fullness of Jesus Christ through His knowledge and spiritual tools of the new covenant. They learn to walk by the pattern of the Spirit and priesthood of Jesus Christ of the Melchizedek order, which works with knowledge to heal the soul through regeneration and renewing of the mind. As Jesus taught that

This is the daily process of walking in faith by which the soul takes on the likeness of Christ, causing death to the old man and new life to the inner man. This is the mystery of Christ an experience for the soul with the knowledge of Jesus Christ that births forth the fruit of the Spirit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, patience and temperance.

God brings illumination and awakening by His grace and when this happens do not harden your heart but humble it to His power to draw faith from your heart for He longs to return to you the light of His glory which is your origin in Him. Through ignorance Satan intends to keep men from their eternal inheritance that God has restored through the knowledge of second covenant of Jesus Christ.

As a Teacher with the Apostles Today Network of the Second 8th Week my prayer for all who hunger after His righteousness is that they find comfort in the knowledge of truth and be edified and exhorted to stand in the power of Christ by the law of grace and truth for healing and completion of the soul with the virtues of Christ.
