Dailies On The Vine

Friendly Flames

Whoever chooses to be the world’s friend makes Himself God’s enemy (James 4:4).

This the scripture that the Lord gave me when I was interpreting a recent dream. In the dream He likened friendship with the world to an algebra mathematical problem, with the root of the division (from Him) entering through our eye gates. We have been in a stunted class where we have learned to obtain what we see, yet it still serving a “third-world spirit world” – it serves self and the brokenness of a fallen nature. It is poverty ridden in mindset, ladden with false acquisition and hope. Repeating the same systematic patterns in a secular world equate secular results. We are fixated on what is brief, our high reach is for what is momentary instead of eternal. The carnality of life is programmed from generation to generation. We are regressing instead of progressing. Our society is like a fracture that will not heal, and the Lord is resetting our bone structure to reunite broken parts.

If you study the etymology of the word Algebra, it quite plainly a spiritual allegory.
Reunion of broken parts and reducing fractions are two preparatory steps to solving algebraic equations ~ calculation by restoring and balancing. The Lord is longing to restore us, but will not reintegrate His people while still broken. He showed me in the dream, you will not graduate when conformed to the systems of the world.

I’ve written about this last year in a different article, however it most certainly applicable to this dream, and how we move forward in the ways of the Lord. The spiritual realm is mathematical! We must take the mental effort to transform from a worldly mind the to mind of Christ. The Greek the word for disciple is mathētḗs, a learner, disciple, pupil and comes from math – “the mental effort to think something through”. HELPS word study defines mathēteúō, “disciple” – to disciple, i.e. helping someone to progressively learn the Word of God to become a matured, growing disciple (literally, “a learner,” a true Christ-follower); to train (develop) in the truths of Scripture and the lifestyle required, i.e. helping a believer learn to be a disciple of Christ in belief and practice.”

“Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship. And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].” Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭1‬-‭2‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Your eyes may be looking on things above and yet still carnal. High places aren’t necessarily His places. You may be looking up, but are you looking at Him?

“Or do you suppose that the Scripture is speaking to no purpose that says, The Spirit Whom He has caused to dwell in us yearns over us and He yearns for the Spirit [to be welcome] with a jealous love? [Jer. 3:14; Hos. 2:19ff.]” James‬ ‭4‬:‭5‬ ‭AMPC‬

“Does the Scripture mean nothing to you that says, “The Spirit that God breathed into our hearts is a jealous Lover who intensely desires to have more and more of us”?” James 4‬:‭5‬ ‭TPT‬‬
