THE WORD OF GOD AS A MIRROR 2

” And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18 (AMP)
 
Beloved, you are metamorphosed or transformed into (one degree of glory to another degree of) the image of the glory of the Lord as you meditate on the scriptures.
As you behold or meditate on the revelation of the glory of the Lord in the scriptures, you are transformed into a greater dimension of glory.
This explains the meaning of this scriptures to some degree:
 
” But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” Proverbs 4:18 (KJV)
 
And we have seen also how the path of the righteous shines:
 
” Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” Psalm 119:105 (KJV).
 
The more you meditate or behold the glory of the Word of God, the more you brightly shine forth.
The Word of God as a mirror, brings us to the consciousness of who we are in Christ.
As a new creation in Christ, you didn’t receive the Life of Christ as you behold the Word of God. When you received Christ, you received His life.
 
” He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” 1 John 5:12-13 (KJV)
 
Now you can clearly see that, though you are born by the seed of the Word of God (I explained this in the first part of this discussion); the Word of God as a mirror doesn’t introduce a new life into you.
The mirror principle of the Word of God is that:
As you look, you come to the true consciousness of who you are in Christ Jesus.
If you defined yourself as a sinner or by any false image created by religion, you begin to experience the renewal of mind as you behold the glory of God in the Word.
As you are born of the Word, you can only see your true picture, your God begotten self as you look into the Word.
A mirror doesn’t add nor change who you are or what you are.
A mirror brings you to the realization and consciousness of who you are.
Anytime you behold yourself in the mirror of the Word, it reveals your true essence and quality.
You can only live in the capacity of that revelation, as you continue in the consciousness of that revelation through meditation.
James the apostle, explains how the mirror principle works:
James 1:21-25 (TPT)
“So this is why we abandon everything morally impure and all forms of wicked conduct. Instead, with a sensitive spirit we absorb God’s Word, which has been implanted within our nature, for the Word of Life has power to continually deliver us. James 1:21 (TPT)
 
Now you can see that, the verse 21 reveals that though one with a sensitive spirit absorbs the Word of God, the Word of God has already been implanted to our new nature in Christ.
And it has continuous work to deliver by its power.
In some other translations it uses the phrase, ” which is able to save your souls”.
This could mean the saving of ones soul through the new birth experience and the saving of your soul (will, mind, emotions) from the affections of the world, through the renewal of the mind.
He then brings the mirror principle of the Word to light in these subsequent verses:
 
” Don’t just listen to the Word of Truth and not respond to it, for that is the essence of self-deception.* So always let his Word become like poetry written and fulfilled by your life! If you listen to the Word and don’t live out the message you hear, you become like the person who looks in the mirror of the Word to discover the reflection of his face in the beginning. You perceive how God sees you in the mirror of the Word, but then you go out and forget your divine origin. But those who set their gaze deeply into the perfecting law of liberty are fascinated by and respond to the truth they hear and are strengthened by it—they experience God’s blessing in all that they do!” James 1:22-25 (TPT).
 

– Not responding to the Word is a self-deception, because it is the unfolding of your originality.

– Let the word be like a poetry written and fulfilled by your life. It means your life has to be the reflection and expression of the Word.

– As you hear the Word, live out the message. Keep it in your heart, meditate on it until it soaks your consciousness.

– When you look into the mirror of the Word you will discover the reflection of your face, you will have the right perception of how God sees you and your divine origin.

– You will not forget it when you set your gaze deeply into the perfecting law of liberty (which is the revelation of Jesus in the Word).

– The consciousness of the word produces fresh strength in you as an unshakable edifice and causes you to experience God’s blessing in all that you do!

Look into the Word daily to see your true-self and enjoy your true inheritance in Christ.
Selah
 
DIG DEEPER:
(1 Corinthians 13:12; Psalm 84:7; John 17:24; 2 Corinthians 4:4,6; Romans 8:29)
 
WE PRAY:
– That we will give ourselves wholly to the influence of the word.
 
BIBLE READING
Day 12: 1 Kings 17-19
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– As I look into the mirror of the word, I see my true essence and quality.
– I continue in the consciousness of what I see in the mirror of the word through meditation.
– I increase the more in strength and grace, the more I look into the mirror of the word.
– My mind is transformed daily as I look into the mirror of the word.
Oh Hallelujah, GLOREEEEY!
