as in a mirror

To discover yourself in the mirror is the key that unlocks the door to divine encounter. Tangible beyond touch the genesis of our being is unveiled. Our most intimate and urgent quest are satisfied here.

“And we all, with new understanding, see ourselves in him as in a mirror; thus we are changed from an inferior mindset to the revealed opinion of our true Origin.” (2 Corinthians 3:18)

you are not under circumstances

Ephesians 5:20

Because you are identified in the Name of Jesus Christ, you can afford to always overflow in gratitude to the Father, (not for everything that happens to you but) in spite of everything that happens to you; you are not under circumstances but above circumstances because you are in him!

[Mirror Translation, Francois du Toit]

It was a grace thing from start to finish

Ephesians 2:8

Your salvation is not a reward for good behaviour! It was a grace thing
from start to finish; you had no hand in it. Even the gift to believe simply
reflects his faith! (You did not invent faith; it was God’s faith to begin with! It is
from faith to faith, Rom 1:17 He is both the source and conclusion of faith, Heb
12:2)

grace rescued us

Ephesians 2:5

This is how grace rescued us: sin left us dead towards God, like spiritual corpses; then comes the resurrection of Christ; in that moment, he simultaneously co-quickened us together with Christ. (Exactly as Hosea prophesied it 800 BC) While sin proved how dead we then were, grace reveals how alive we now are. Even when we were dead in our trespasses, he made us alive together with him, and raised us up together with him. (God saw us in Christ in his death and resurrection before we saw ourselves there! Hosea 6:2
declares our co-resurrection with Christ before anyone but God believed it!)

He is the source of our completeness

John 1:16

He is the source of our completeness. Grace against grace! (Grace prevailed against the tide of darkness due to Adam’s fall. His fullness is the source of all that grace communicates as our portion, against all the odds!)

John 1:17

Against the stark backdrop of the law; with Moses representing the condemned state of mankind, Jesus Christ unveils grace and truth! (He is the life of our design redeemed in human form).

He is the revelation of our completeness. ‘And of his fullness have we all received, grace against grace.’ Greek garin anti garitos, grace undeserved. “For the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. He who is in the bosom of the Father, the only original, authentic begotten of the Father, he is our guide who accurately declares and interprets the invisible God within us.”

the cross: our source of sustainable pleasure – by John Crowder

There is no longer any lack in you. At the first moment of faith, Christ has caused you to become a source of blessing. Begin to believe it, and you will begin to manifest it. All of heaven is within you and intends to pour through you. Luke 17:21 says the kingdom of God is within you. You are much larger on the inside than the outside! From within you flow multiple rivers of Glory.

He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water (John 7:38).

Everywhere he goes, the life of the believer should spill and overflow with an abundance of the oil of favor. People should be blessed for receiving you; employers will be blessed by hiring you. Because of Gods Glory on your life, everything you do can now prosper, because the ark of His presence rests in you, just as it once rested on the land of Obed Edom. Relationships will be restored. The sick will be healed. The means and varieties of fruitfulness are endless.
