KINGDOM ALIGNMENT to Matthew 16:24
We are passionate about Jesus and Abba and
I believe the Word is being birthed through the Spirit of Prophecy which is “Revelation”.
Pick up your “Tree” – (cross) and follow me.
“Then Jesus said to his disciples, if any man would come after me, let him give up all, and take up his cross, and come after Me.”
The Word “disciple” means pupil or learner; to follow the precepts and instructions of “one”. It comes from the root word, “manthano”, which means to learn; increase one’s knowledge; hear; be informed; to learn by use and practice; to understand.
The word “cross” in the lexicon means “to put an upright stake in the ground” and comes from the base Greek word “histemi, which means to cause or make a stand in the presence of others; before judges; before the members of Sanhedrin; to make firm; fix establish oneself in hers or his place; to stand firm; to keep intact of family; kingdom; to escape in safety; to stand unmovable on the foundation of the building (Jesus is the builder). Stand ready and prepared! To be of a steadfast mind! One who does not hesitate nor waivers.
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.
The word “tree” comes from the Greek word Neuter “xulon”, meaning a staff, cross, and anything made of wood.
Jesus hanged on a tree (cross) and if you study Galatians (3:13), we see it was to break the curse that came through Eve partaking of the fruit from the knowledge of good and evil. This changed the position that we are in; we have been re-instated back to the original design before the curse entered. God told Adam not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and today, Abba is giving us the same instruction. What tree are you picking from? What cross are you picking up?
The Lord says
I am Life and when you eat of my Word you are eating the fruit from the tree of Life. I didn’t come in “reasoning or philosophy”, or “man’s wisdom or knowledge”. I came in Spirit and in Truth and I am calling you to partake from my Instruction Manual that will be revealed to you through the Holy Spirit, who is the revealer of all things. Pick up “the tree of life, your cross” and place the stake in the ground that you are choosing life. Partake of the fruit of righteousness and receive the instructions to make your decisions that imitate Me, thus you will see healing, not only in your life, but also in the nations. For so many of my people are still picking the fruit from the wrong tree and living out of knowledge and philosophies birthed out of man’s opinion. I am the Spirit of Knowledge; I am the Spirit of Wisdom; engage Me and I will reveal the hidden mysterious within My Word that will accelerate you into realms of revelation that will overwhelm you! Jump off the fence, put your stake in the ground, and come eat! This is your invitation to journey on the road of discovering what it means to be born of My Spirit and produce fruit that never dies! This is the true meaning of picking up your cross to follow Me…..So come. Amen.
KINGDOM ALIGNMENT KEY
Every piece of fruit starts with a seed…..what seeds are you planting?
Align with the Spirit of Revelation and the Spirit of Truth through
intimacy with Jesus, the Living Word. In this place, you will produce
fruit of life that is living and alive that will bring restoration of all things.
To eat from the fruit of the tree of life, is to receive the seed of the Word
of God through the spirit of revelation, thus bearing fruit and then we will
see nations restored.
Going back to our text – “pick up the cross” – Jesus is life; we are to eat from the fruit of life; partaking from Him; being discipled by Him. To learn; to be established in Him; He is seated in heavenly places. It is a spiritual position; we are to become students; directors of heaven on the earth. He fulfilled the requirement for us and now it is our turn to “give up” the life of eating the fruit from man’s philosophy, the world system. We are to put a stake in the ground and eat from Him, the tree of life through the revelation of His Word. Follow the instructions, learn the oracles, and grow as citizens in the Kingdom of God. Learn how to live in His Kingdom from the Tree of Life. This is a spiritual position like in Revelation 22:1-2.
“1Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.”
