Dear Family of our Lord Jesus Christ,
unityinGodThe great need for Christians is unity. Unity is strength. We have power to triumph with God. Andrew Murray
Always keep yourselves united in the Holy Spirit….We are all one body. we have the same Spirit. Eph 4: 3-4
Today we are blessed to have Monica Miller Ruhl with us……………

In Christ are hidden all the treasures and knowledge of God. Christ is the wisdom of God! The “secret” things of God which is the “hidden wisdom” of the Lord himself cannot be known naturally by man. Our human natural mind is not the realm of revelation—Our spirit is!
God’s truth of being joined to the believer’s spirit is that He lives in your spirit. “The person who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him (1 Cor 6:17, AMP). His objective then is the “subjugation” of our soul from which the natural mind is operating. All human reasoning—your will and emotions—operates within the soul. That’s not saying its evil. The soul in its proper place, under Godly dominion, is a beautiful instrument given of God to help us relate to the “natural realm”. The problem is when the soul in its dominion/rule tries to interpret the spiritual, but it cannot. The soul will always be a faulty computer in the spiritual realm. The soul will read circumstances wrong. If circumstances are bad it says “God doesn’t love me”, or “If God loved me this wouldn’t be going on”, or “Where is God?”, or “Why are you doing this God?” etc. and if circumstances are good then “God loves me”. This is faulty because the soul interprets “natural things” by “natural understanding”. The soul in the proper realm can rightly interpret such things as gemology (the science of dealing with natural and artificial gemstones), mathematics, literature, history, etc. because that is its realm. But the soul trying to interpret God leads to “God loves me”—“God loves me not” issues and those always lead to condemnation. We need to be able to see past the circumstances. Circumstantial evidence does not rightly proclaim God’s love for you. He is far above and beyond our circumstances. Our relationship with God must deepen spiritually to get beyond these entrapments of confusion in the soul realm.
Only God can divide the soul and spirit. God is spirit, so spirit is the highest form; the highest realm. Spiritual life then is an even keel—there is no roller coaster ride in it—it simply doesn’t exist. If you are experiencing ups and downs you know that is your soul. It is very important to understand that we must be conformed to the Truth (the person Jesus Christ) that is in the experience of the Message. (Philp 3:10, “That I may know Him.”) Our aim is to secure the realization of Jesus Christ in every set of circumstances. Hence we are not to be conformed to the circumstances, but to the Lord. We must learn (being captivated in continual appreciation) to follow Christ wholeheartedly; to hear and obey His voice and desire Him as our all in all. In this place we experientially become “progressively” transformed into His likeness—the LAMB and His Bride. This is a creative spiritual dynamic in the DNA of God’s essence (the burnings of the Holy Spirit) to internally benefit relationally with the final goal of “union”. Oneness with the heart of God communicated in our continual abandoned devotion by which we are in turn filled with His immeasurable living essence as partakers of the divine nature. Phil 3:7-8, But whatever former things I had that might have been gains to me, I have come to consider as [one combined] loss for Christ’s sake. Yes, furthermore, I count everything as loss compared to the possession of the priceless privilege (the overwhelming preciousness, the surpassing worth, and supreme advantage) of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord and of progressively becoming more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him [of perceiving and recognizing and understanding Him more fully and clearly]. For His sake I have lost everything and consider it all to be mere rubbish (refuse, dregs), in order that I may win (gain) Christ (the Anointed One), (AMP).
The Holy Spirit is determined that we realize Jesus Christ in every domain of life, and His assignment is to bring us back to the same point again and again until we grasp this reality. Hebrews 4:12—For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. (AMP)
We are in a season where God is changing the locks on our hearts. He is exposing what we have come to love—those things that have moved us away from our first love, Christ. The heart is going to “learn Life” without these things so we will look to God. This sifting and shaking is purposed in God to lift us out of the “temporal realm” into the life of Christ—His Spirit filling us with the essence of Life! Though it is difficult to see what God is doing in the Spiritual realm now, be assured He is building a spiritual Ark giving birth to the Kingdom of God in the earth. And we are living the life of the Kingdom in the Spirit. Man’s plans are going to fail (read Jer. 11). The plumb line ministry is being released—it is the issue of wholeheartedness—the Bridal paradigm.
What Are We Becoming In Likeness?
If we allow the Lord to do in us what is necessary, then Lord is able to use us as vessels because He has subjected us—our soul—to the Spirit. This bears the marks of God’s Spirit in our spirit having taught us the significance of waiting, not getting ahead of Him, and not trying to do it for Him, etc. We can understand this from the perspective that as beautiful as a wild stallion horse may be running freely in the open plains, yet untrained, it is of no value to man. Submission is the picture of this wild stallion coming under the bridle and willingly submitting to the commands of its master. Although the Bible defines Babylon as a system, its common denominator is SELF or the government of self. Therefore getting out of “self” is internally getting out of Babylon and willingly submitting to God’s Kingdom (Governmental) rule.
When circumstances rip us apart, Christ is not yet “firmly established” in us to go through those things without being destroyed by them. There’s only one way out of the old Adam (old nature)—CHRIST (the new nature). The increase of Christ brings the decrease of the soul—not it’s destruction, but it’s subjugation. What we are looking for is Christ increasing dominion in the believer as a “governmental” issue. Is. 9:6 Christ becomes our government. The issue of victory is governmental—governmental is positional either the “tree of knowledge”…, soul, or “the Tree of Life”, Spirit ruling. Maturity is not about gifting—it is about the GIFT—Christ in you having preeminence continually. Our time here on Earth is the qualifying time to rule and reign with Christ—eternally! The importance of this cannot be overstated. And the distinction of this reality has been determined to be revealed fully in this hour.
The carnal man can never understand Christ. It comes by way of revelation—Spirit to spirit. God cannot be understood by any creation except He reveals Himself. We are in the administration of the MYSTERY (Secret)—“THE FULLNESS OF TIME”—THE REVEALING OF CHRIST. God’s end IS CHRIST—Christ in you and you in Christ—one with His nature—partakers of the divine nature—one spirit with the SON (1 Cor 6:17 “But the person who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him.”AMP)
There is a day of glory coming where The SON will be revealed in the “huios”(mature, complete) sons. Not by might, not by power, but by MY SPIRIT—the highest realm—GOD’S SPIRIT! Christ in you the hope of glory!This is the Fulfillment, that the latter glory will be greater than the former (Solomon’s Temple). God’s “shekinah” (glory) dwelling in the “temple of earthen vessels” who are “wholeheartedly” given over to the LAMB and willingly subjected to His government—a peculiar people, a people of “distinction”, called by His holy name- His Bride [in the knowledge and worship of the heavenly Father, John 17: 11-12, AMP].
