John 5 [The man at the Pool of Bethesda had a long standing condition, 38 years. He was one of many waiting on the five porches surrounding what is believed to be a mineral spring. Jesus approached him; the man was not looking for or to Jesus for a healing. When Jesus came to him, the man began speaking about his condition, how long, how he was waiting for the waters to move, how the first one in got healed, etc. Jesus asked him, Do you want to be made whole?]
Blah, blah, blah. Do you want to be well? Will you continue to be covered/clothed with pride; or will you be enclosed/surrounded with the energy of the Holy Spiritópermeated, penetrated?
[At this point, I was hearing this word but couldnít find a pen, only paper. I couldnít remember the exact word (enclosed is my choice), only a mental picture of the Holy Spiritís energy twirling and swirling around me, through me, in me, etc. Then, finally, I had pen and paper to go on.]
Does your infirmity, sickness, ailment, infection, illness, condition serve you well or would you be free, willing to serve righteousness with the members of your body? [cf. Romans 6, Luke 1:74, 75; 1 Corinthians 6:12-20; James 4:6-8]
Does it please you to have others care and be responsible for your well-being or will you trust in the Living God to sustain you, bless you, and care for you? [1 Peter 5:6-11; Galatians 6:1-5]
Are others the source of your life and happiness or is the Living God the Source of your life and blessing?
Lay on your mat with all the others feeding your infirmity or see that before you stands Jesus Christ, Lord over life and Judge of the living and the dead. Behold, a divine visitation is before you, the God of all grace; for grace and truth came through Jesus Christ in a visitation from heaven. [Acts 10:42; 1 John 1:1-17; 1 Peter 5:10]
Pneumatikos [work and domain of the Holy Spirit; spiritual; used to refer to someone in whom the spiritual dominates over the soul and body; one who is filled with and governed by the Spirit of God]
House of the Spirit. Pneumatikos oikos The Spirit is your house and the glory of the LORD fills it. The of-the-heavens One has comeóto open the eyes of the blind, to open the ears of the deaf, to cause the lame to walk, to set captives free. [Luke 4:18, 19; 1 Corinthians 15:44, 46, 52; 1 Peter 2:5; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Psalm 5:12; Psalm 125:2; Psalm 32:7; Exodus 24:16-18 to think about; John 17:22; 2 Corinthians 3:18]
Will you remain in the prison of pride surrounded by the enemies of Christ, enemies who are destined for destruction? Will you continue to block the Breath of the Almighty, who would blow across your land with a roar of victory? [2 Kings 6:8-23; Proverbs 6:16-19; Job 41]
I tell you Jesus came to seek and save the lost. But you stand in your pride with an armor and stronghold against Him. You have surrounded yourself with defenses and sit in an illusion of safety and ease. [Luke 19:10; Jeremiah 48]
Do you not know; have you not heard? Where can you go from My Spirit? I run through a troop. I bring down kingdoms and kings. I neither faint nor am weary. Do you think your pride cannot be broken by Me? I have boundless energy, boundless means. [Isaiah 40:28; Psalm 139; Psalm 18:29-36]
If indeed you are one who has been bought with a price and Jesus Christ is your Master, then letís tear down the walls of pride and flesh, the strongholds of corruption, and build the house of the Holy Spirit. My words are spirit and they are life. Your life is not your own; My life endures forever. [Galatians 5; 1 John 2:16; Ephesians 4:17ff; John 6:63; 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Acts 7:48; Mark 14:58; 1 Peter 2:4-6]
For I will have a house not built with hands, a temple, a sanctuary of My Spirit that I might enjoy the oneness with you for which you were created. [See above verses.]
One day you will put off the tent of your earthly body and receive a resurrection body. Start now. Rise, take UP your mat, and walk.
