DOES GOD LIVE IN YOU? DO YOU LIVE IN GOD?

I pray that in reading this booklet you are seeking to pattern and live your life following God’s thoughts and ways as found in His Word through the spirit of your mind. (1) He has provided His anointing for His Saints through God the Holy Spirit Who lives in you. You are His physical and spiritual temple here on earth – in reality we are Christ’s Bride Church, and He will teach and lead you to know the truth about God the Son – Jesus Christ – and of all things through God the Holy Spirit. This truth in all things will set you free from the slavery of your sins through your faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ! (2) Most Christians know and believe that God the Holy Spirit lives in us. (3)

© And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind…

(1) And (you) be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude]. (Ephesians 4:23) AMP
(2) However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.  He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.  All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you. (John 16:13-15) NKJV
(2a) But you have an anointing from the Holy One {God the Holy Spirit}, and you know all things. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. (1 John 2:20, 27) NKJV
(2a) The Truth Shall Make You Free Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32) NKJV
(3) Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.        (John 14:23) NKJV
(3a) Do you not discern and understand that you [the whole church at Corinth] are God’s temple (His sanctuary), and that God’s Spirit has His permanent dwelling in you [to be at home in you, collectively as a church and also individually]?                           (1 Corinthians 3:16) AMP

You must not only understand what John 14:23 says about God. That is the Father and the Son lives/indwells in you vicariously{/as substituted} through God the Holy Spirit – the Trinity, but you also dwell in God! I did not realize until recently the extreme significance of this joint indwelling – our oneness in and with God – He in us and we in Him. Jesus said, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.  Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.  If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.  If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
Love and Joy Perfected. “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. (John 15:1-11) NKJV

Jesus gives to us an awesome and amazing text when He Prays for All Believers. Please pray on this text for God the Holy Spirit to reveal to you the intricacy and intimacy of our faith in Jesus Christ and the testimony of other Believers (a) {follow this letter below}, then the intricacy and intimacy of us the Saints individual involvement with them (b) {follow this letter below}, and then the intricacy and intimacy of us the Saints corporately as Christ’s Bride Church as does the Trinity within Itself. (c) {follow this letter below} “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; (a) that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; (b) (4) that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, (c) and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. (John 17:20-23) NKJV
(4) I and the Father are One. (John 10:30) AMP

Compare the (a), (b), and (c) of the above Scripture to the (a), (b), and (c) of the following commentary. I really like the way the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary which was published in 1871 expresses the complexity and intricacy of this “ONENESS” thought. It is awesome!!! “No language which we at present have can adequately express the full import{/importance} of these wonderful words, nor can any heart here below completely conceive it. But the three great unities here brought before us may be pointed out. (a) First in order is the Unity of the Father and the Son – “as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee:” (b) next, the assumption {/inclusion} of all believers into that Unity, thus constituting a new Unity – “that they also may be one in Us:” (c) Finally, and as the consequence{/result} of this, the Unity of all believers among themselves – “that they all may be one,” that is, among themselves. Had our Lord {not} been here speaking of the absolute or essential unity of the Father and the Son in the Godhead, He could not have prayed that believers might be taken into that Unity.” (John 17:21) (5)

Remember the definition I gave for the word “intricacy?” “God being so inter-involved and multifaceted in our lives so that we cannot exist without His presence.” Read the following Scriptures in context. “Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath or spirit of life, and man became a living being.  [1 Cor 15:45-49.] (Genesis 2:7) AMP As long as my life is still whole within me, and the breath of God is [yet] in my nostrils, (Job 27:3) AMP I pray as I go along with this booklet you will begin to see and understand God the Holy Spirit’s intricate involvement is all of His creation to sustain the physical life with all of its processes of all of the plants, animals, birds, fish, insects – creatures including humans.

David wrote the following Psalm revealing his insights to God and His relationship that He had with him. “O LORD, you have searched me [thoroughly] and have known me. You know my downsitting and my uprising; You understand my thought afar off.  [Matt 9:4; John 2:24, 25.] You sift and search out my path and my lying down, and You are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue [still unuttered], but, behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.  [Heb 4:13.]
“You have beset me and shut me in — behind and before, and You have laid Your hand upon me. Your [infinite] knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high above me, I cannot reach it.
“Where could I go from Your Spirit? Or where could I flee from Your presence? If I ascend up into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol (the place of the dead), behold, You are there.  [Rom 11:33.] If I take the wings of the morning or dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there shall Your hand lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me and the night shall be [the only] light about me, Even the darkness hides nothing from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You.”  [Dan 2:22.] (Psalms 139:1-12) AMP
“When You {God the Father} send forth Your Spirit and give them {Your people} breath, they are created, and You replenish the face of the ground. ((Psalms 104:30) When You {God the Father} hide Your face, they are troubled and dismayed; when You take away their breath {Your Spirit}, they die and return to their dust.” (Psalms 104:29) AMP

It must be clearly understood that NO man or woman whether saved or unsaved will ever be God! This must be made very clear! But all truly “Born Again” Christians do partake of and are sealed with the Divine Nature of God that gives us a relationship with God that is truly OUT OF THIS WORLD!
