I have said, "Walk in the light, as He is in the light, and you will have fellowship with one another." You must seek My face to know My ways and not rely on the flesh to discern what is spiritual.
I have created marriage to reflect the relationship of Christ and the church. The church is to submit to the authority of Christ which releases her to operate in power and authority. It is not a passive thing to submit.
Think of the military where there are clear lines of authority. The authority is established so there is clear direction in how to implement a campaign. How can one know to go to the battle without the trumpet sounding?
Submission does not mean that you do not have authority. Submission is coming under authority so that you will be able to walk as one as We are One. Authority is not about ruling or controlling another, for that is witchcraft. When one must use control they are bowing to a spirit of fear and manipulation.
Instead, everything must be done out of love. Everything must come into submission to Me. My Son only did what He saw Me doing. Therefore, when the authority I have ordained in the earth comes into submission to My authority, then oneness will result.
Where there is unity, I command the blessing. Walking in love, means confronting that which would harm the relationship and cause it to be out of alignment with My will and purposes. It is imperative to seek the greater good, which is to love. Love guards truth. They cannot be separated. My love displayed is not a weak passive love, but a bold love that conquers sin, in order to rule and reign in power and authority, thereby destroying the works of darkness.
1 John 1:7 New International Version (NIV)
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
Psalm 133:1 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
Ephesians 5:21 Living Bible (TLB)
Honor Christ by submitting to each other.
