Salvation is the beginning of a process, the entrance--not the destination, as some suppose. Just as grapes taken from the cluster are transformed through processing, first the crushing, and in the end, taking on a new form--wine, changing from a solid into a fermented liquid; so My children begin earthy (natural) and mature into heavenly beings (spiritual) through My processing. Even then the wine must be aged to come into its ultimate perfection.
My people are on a journey, looking for a City whose maker is God, enduring the process so they can enter the promised land--a state of perfection and holiness. The journey always begins with Jesus and ends in Jesus. The Law of Circularity, and by the completion of the course a great work has been accomplished--they are prepared for resurrection life.
The mysteries of God's ways are unfolded while we pass through the Valley of Achor and climb the mountain of submission. As we wrestle with God, our own strength and will is broken, and we are assured of the blessing, for we discover His Name, Wonderful, Counselor and The Most High God, if we hold fast to the end.
