FRANCE AND GOD
Continuation of the chapter 6
The Fruits of peace
3) The Fire of the third baptism
It is quite obvious that the Spirit of God cannot be content with mere appearances, and wants to bring us back to our TRUE personality, with bridges of a nature identical to His own. That is why it is so important to let oneself be led by the breath of His Spirit to overcome the bad images, becoming heartfelt again like a little child, who lets himself be guided by God His Father. It is then that the old bridges of the flesh die as gradually burned and new ones of the Spirit appear, without destroying our own personality.
The other images, the ones that were more distorted us than formed, are the ones that we would like to lose because they sometimes create us some difficulties, but we would have the impression of having to live another life than ours. It is because our spirit then identifies a behavior that it considers right, to that of an impure spirit that such a mountain has one day come barred the road and created that part of suffering and pain buried in our subconscious. Jesus told us about the mountain that this spirit represents for us (Mark 11-
Verily I say to you, that whosoever shall say to this mountain, Be thou taken away and cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but believe that what he says takes place, whatever he shall say shall come to pass for him.
For this reason I say to you, All things whatsoever ye pray for and ask, believe that ye receive it, and it shall come to pass for you. And when ye stand praying, forgive if ye have anything against any one, that your Father also who is in the heavens may forgive you your offences. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in the heavens forgive your offences.//
See how, by very little thing, it is possible for us to miss the blessing of leaving our old reactions. By a little lack of forgiveness, of the faith that we would have, and that would allow us to say to the mountain come to bar the real life that God would have wanted to give us, run away from here and let me go, we deprive ourselves and go through a life without joy, made up of so many repressed fears.
As we already saw in the chapter "The flesh, the war", the meanders of our carnal soul are built, not by our happiness, although they are part of the desires of survival that God gives us, but by our misfortunes. These are the only limits that Satan can construct in us, whose present "cohabitation" with Jesus will last until His return, the date on which Satan's reign over us will end. Up to this day, we are guided by one or other of these two entities with which we dialogue spiritually since any thought or personal analysis has as a starting point in us one or the other entity if we have started working on our sanctification led by Christ. God gave us the picture from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3-
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.//
This text has perhaps much less colorful imagery than some people imagine. It brings out the dialogue that can be established between Satan and us. We could also have taken another equally well known, which is the search of Satan to make Jesus fall into temptation, although with regard to Jesus the temptation came from outside, Satan having not had right of access at the spiritual construction of Jesus, given His divine birth. Without knowing it, we enter into dialogue with him much more often than we imagine, if only through the temptation to disobedience. In our thoughts, we then directly or indirectly dialogue with him or his fallen angels that are demons, also called unclean spirits (identical to those of our carnal psychology). It is not, of course, spiritualism or other demonic "sciences" that lead directly to a voluntary dialogue with Satan, but with Satan as the supervisor of our carnal psychology. Let's look, however, what Jesus told the disciples in relation to the authority we have over demons (Luke 10-
And he said to them, I beheld Satan as lightning falling out of heaven. Behold, I give you the power of treading upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall in anywise injure you.
Yet in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subjected to you, but rejoice that your names are written in the heavens.//
God wants men made, men who are more voluntarily attached to the balance of God than to the supernatural demonstration of any work whatsoever.
We must see in this, that the testimony of the Glory of God is to be more in the liberation of the soul to be able to do the will of God, than in its supernatural external demonstration. Jesus first desires that everyone is delighted that his name is inscribed in the book of life, but also that those whose names are inscribed there remain by a progressive renewal in His Spirit. After a certain time after the baptism of the Holy Spirit given by the Dresser Jesus of his vineyard, God comes and therefore asks for accounts (Luke 13-
And he said to the vinedresser, Behold, [these] three years I come seeking fruit on this fig-
But he answering says to him, Sir, let it alone for this year also, until I shall dig about it and put dung, and if it shall bear fruit -
This renewal does not take place indeed without the active participation of the person, and the soldier's garment of which Christ cloths us at the time of our Baptism of the Holy Spirit is not a habit of parry, but a dress of authority against impure spirits of our flesh. If this armament of the Spirit and the knowledge of His word do not lead us one day to the good fight of the Spirit against our own carnal spirit, it serves only to make us even more reprehensible than the one who has received nothing. That is why God wants to lead us to the baptism of Fire which is our first fight conducted according to His rules, so the first victory, the result appears to us so phenomenal, that it becomes a dynamic which makes grow our faith, by increase of the presence of God in us. It is then that He puts His laws in our hearts, and that he writes them in our spirit as He has promised.
