A Sea of Glass Mixed with Fire

When the book of Revelation speaks about a sea of glass mixed with fire (15:2) it is alluding to the new creation in Christ who is joined one spirit with God. The sea of glass is our inner spirit tranquility which is mixed with pure love. We are both calmness and a burning flame. Only in the kingdom of God can contrasts like this coexist and make sense.

Our God, who is all in all, has established His kingdom in people like you and me. The One who is in complete control has endowed us with a faith faculty which when practiced see through to the core of all things where it finds the eternal One. The core is infinite and unchangeable. In the midst of our travails and our fluctuating emotions our spirit center is thus like a sea of glass.

God is a consuming fire. His love burns like an eternal flame. To John it was shown like a river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In us life blossoms by virtue of the river which every moment refreshes us, and what we have we pass on because God cannot deny Himself. Our righteousness is clear as crystal. It can never be questioned because a gift from God will always prevail and speak truth.

The kingdom of God established in man connotes a new order of things and thus the following passage has come into effect: “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

We speak a word of faith and calls things that are not as though they were which means that the eternal truths do already exist even though we do not see them with our natural eyes. We call on them and in God’s time they will be manifested to His glory. We are transformed. We are who we are. We are living temples. We are everything in Him. We are eternally changed. When the truth dawns upon us we cease striving to become something we already are, and in the core of all things we recognize that there is no more death or mourning or crying or pain since we are complete in Him.

    Great! Deep and full of God’s truths. (reading again) Ole I am so blessed to be not only one with him but to be one with you and my other brothers and sisters. Our striving has ended and we are seeing our “oneness” in who we are in him.
    Noticing lately a great deal of post are speaking about our idenity and oneness this is the work of the Holy Spirit because right perspective in Chirst will bring Kindom authority upon the Earth.

    I couldn’t agree more, Cheryl! It a huge blessing to be part of this fellowship of people who have seen who they are, and due to that fact the life of Christ is simply pouring out like a wild torrent. Yes, there is an awaking in the body regarding these precious truths that we share. The Spirit is working!

    Such beautiful, high truth Ole, thank you. Sounds to good to be true, so it must be, ha. Yes, I heard it like this concerning this gospel of good news: The truth of the gospel is so much higher and more glorious than most of us ever imagine, so must of us just don’t, but if we do…
