From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher

To: those who would be conformed to His image…to the great, costly, hewn stones…

. loving anything or anybody more than Jesus had to be cut away!

. trusting anything or anybody more than Jesus had to be cut away!

. the love of money had to be cut away!

. the love of the world had to be cut away!

. the love of self had to be cut away!

. everything contrary to Him, everything conforming to the image of the earthly, had to be cut away!

. now. He has us right where He wants us.

. nothing left but Him.

. we are CHANGED into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2Corinthians 3:18b.

. For whom He did foreknow He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son…Romans 8:29.

. …we shall also bear the image of the heavenly…1Corinthians 15:49b.
