Revelation on Fasting
Revelation on Fasting. The difference between fasting in the flesh and fasting in the spirit and the importance of fasting in both. Rejoicing in God is fasting in the spirit. The "son" (flesh) and the "father" (spirit) [Rosenborg, Oslo, Norway].
1. The Word of the Lord unto the New Covenant Christians on fasting, which ye have made enquiry of Me concerning.
The Father (Spirit) and Son (Flesh)
2. It is expedient that ye should fast1 from time to time that the flesh2 become subject to the spirit, or the son to the father, that ye hear the voice of the Father which whispereth in power and gentleness the peaceable things of the Kingdom.
3. Behold, the voice of the son is loud and boisterous3, but the voice of the father is quiet and ordered.
4. Thus the voice of the son drowneth out the voice of the father, and thus ye must cause the son to be silent, that the father may speak.
5. And this is the purpose of the ordinance of fasting, that ye may hear My Voice, and the voice of the father within, putting the son or flesh in subjection to the father or spirit, which is the great work which ye are called to do within.
6. And fasting overpowereth the son, for it taketh away his strength while he yet learneth to be in subjection to the father.
7. Ye cannot hear the father until ye have silenced the son; therefore fast that ye may obtain the Word of the Lord and the power thereof.
8. This is the outer law, saith the Lord, but there is an inner law, or inner fasting which ye have not applied sufficiently, and thus ye have not reaped its fruits.
9. And the inner fast is rejoicing, for when ye rejoice in the Father through the Son, the Father claimeth the victory and is heard4;
10. And when ye rejoice the son, or flesh, is made to be silent, that the father may speak and be heard.
11. If ye have desires to overcome the flesh through the spirit, or the son through the father, then ye shall fast always, rejoicing continually in the good- ness of your God and in His glorious works.
12. Ye shall fast in the flesh until your fasting in the spirit is made perfect;
13. For when your members, even the flesh and the spirit, are in their proper order, ye shall have no need of physical fasting for ye shall rejoice always, and your fasting, or joy, shall be full.
14. If a man or woman fasteth not in spirit then his fleshly fasting is of no avail to the spirit, for such profiteth only the body to cleanse it, from time to time.
15. And ye shall use wisdom in your physical fasts, saith the Lord, remembering that the body is the Temple and should not be weakened unduly that its walls shake.
16. If ye fast in the flesh but not in the spirit; or in other words, if your fast is not fully in Me, then your fast is spiritually unprofitable, and ye open the door to unclean powers and dominions which shall seek to quickly possess.
17. Therefore ye shall not fast in the flesh until ye are fasting in the spirit, which is rejoicing in your God, else your fasting is void.
18. Ye shall fast in your spirit all the days of your life that ye overcome all things and receive a place at the right hand of the Father. Even so. Amen.
