Abraham’s Shield Part 2 Condemnation vs righteousness 5/25

Righteousness vs. Condemnation, Girding the loins of the mind and the priests head set.
What the preists symbolized for us by putting on their wordrobe represents for us what we do in the spirit of our mind. The head set is guarding the mind with correct thinking. This is the same as Nehemiahs building the wall first.  This was to protect the temple and we are the temple of God. This is our sanctification. Let nothing that defiles get in.
Righteousness is the absence of condemnation. Righteousness is right standing with God. Paul said “there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus who walk not according to the flesh but according to the spirit.” The condemnation we are talking about is not condemnation from God so much as it is the self inflicted condemnation of the conscience. Condemnation is the main emotion and motivator in the mind that is taken into the cycle of addictions. This is what fuels the addictive cycle. This is the soul who is separate from God. The soul is the place where only God can fit. It is empty and wanting to be filled. They feel the pain of this emptiness and need to be anesthetized and therefore they are giving into all sorts of addictions, be they legal or illegal.  Religious duties are likewise addictive without reward.  It is the continual confessions at church on Sundays being an addictive cycle that never fills. The pain never goes away. Christ said “He who drinks of Me shall never thirst” and we are filled.
 It says in the book of Hebrews that all the blood of the bulls and goats only indicated that there was sin, but that Jesus Christ took sin away to perfect forever those who are coming to him. And “the conscience once purged would have no more conscientiousness of sin”. He is the great High Priest for this purpose. He is the only link between God and man.
We see condemnation first with cane who said my punishment is more than I can bear. His countenance was fallen and was sick with scripture saying “if you do well it will be well with you but sin is like a demon crouching at your door whose desire is for you, to rule you, but you must master it.”  People who do not do well by making their own definition of what well is, strive to compete and fight and struggle and lie and cheat at their core. This only increases self condemnation it makes the struggle of addiction harder.
The tools that control people with a guilty conscience are condemnation, fear and intimidation. Any such relationship that uses fear and intimidation is designed only to control you by fear. Fortunate for us we can cleanse a fear-based conscience by the gospel. We can be renewed in the mind by the word. Even as scripture says that “we being delivered from the hands of our enemies and all that hate us are able to live our lives without fear before God and holiness”. Didn’t the Apostle John say “he who fears has not been made perfect in love because fear involves torment”.
 It is as we learn to walk with the Lord where there is no condemnation we see the enemy of fear coming. We learn that fear itself is much bigger than the thing that we feared. Like Jacobs fear of Esau. Upon the confrontation Jacob said “in your face  I have seen the face of God”.  And as the disciples showed in the boat that was rocking back and forth that immediately they receiving the Lord into the boat, the boat was immediately where they wanted to be. “In Christ”. This is our answer to the Rocky storms that fear brings in our life. This is the peace of God “the peace I give you not as the world gives give I to you”.
The fear of the unknown is perhaps the biggest monster in our lives from the kid who’s afraid to get out of bed in the middle of the night because of the monsters under the bed, to those who wonder what their end will be, who will feed them, and who will take care of them. We all fear these things but as the Lord told Abraham I am your Shield your exceedingly great reward. If we learn to apply this and walk in it, our enemies become our meat. It is our spiritual food for growth. Condemnation is a motivation by fear. This is the emotion of the fallen mind.
We are instructed to “take on the shield of Faith which is able to quench all the fiery darts of the enemy”, not just some. We see this over and over in scripture. We see David sling stones at Goliath and hitting him right between the eyes. We can do the same thing. We speak a word of Truth. “We Believe therefore we speak”.  And the thing that we say becomes our new reality. Like Him who said “let there be light” and there was light”. This is the way we show  ourselves offspring of the Father. The Works of the father in us. We are His. There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ so there should be no fear motivating factors. The peace of God has spoken saying “My peace I give you not as the world gives therefore let your heart not be troubled or afraid.” If we are allowing condemnation to rule in our hearts, we are taken captive by the enemy to do his bidding. He is the accuser, and accusation produces condemnation in a mind that has not been purged by the blood of the lamb.
So we respond to condemnation with word. That is our tool of faith for those in the faith.

John the Baptist and the Lamb of God 1/2/16

Download PDF
It was John the Baptist who said of Christ “here comes the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” for the renewal to commence.
    Any other gospel message that comes short of taking away the sins of the world is incomplete. Any other message that teaches of a future saving or a future victory over sin or a future victory over Satan or a future victory in any way is a false gospel, a truncated gospel. But “we speak of what we’ve heard and testify to the things that we have seen”.
John was a man sent forth by God. It was said of John the Baptist that of all the prophets he was the greatest, and he was the greatest because he spoke plainly something that all the other prophets just alluded to. And that is that “the Kingdom of God is at hand”. And he didn’t mean some silly city on earth called Jerusalem. That was turned “till not one stone was left upon another”. You see no other prophet put it so plainly and so clearly than that the kingdom of God is something to be grasped. “At Hand”. “
All the law and the prophets were until John the baptist, from that time the Kingdom the Kingdom is preached and all are pressing in”? Yes! Because “all the law and the prophets were parables”. Yes they were pictures and play things to mimick the invisible ever ready, ubiquitus heavenly Kingdom at hand. The law and the prophets were visible things to learn of the invisible. Parabbles to teach by carnal visuals of things we need to understand in the spirit of our mind of the “Kingdom prepared from the foundation of the world”. A pre-incarnate reality we call the spirit. And when that which is perfect has come? This is the regenerate re formatted mind of faith that co-rules and reigns. Rev 3 “He who overcomes shall rule with a rod of iron” And this happens how? 1 John 5 how is it that we overcome the world? By faith. This is the overcoming of scripture and need not another earthly Jesus or city called Jerusalem. “He who overcomes shall be a pillar in the house of God”.
The churches were called to overcome but stuck in the visuals like today. That is not of faith but fact, that is not of the eternal spirit but time and matter. Every clock has a deadline and expiration date, but not the things of God.That is what eternal means and what we get. That which was before God ever said “Let there be light!”
    No city or king on earth ever are the fulfillment of Gods word like Jesus said “My Kingdom is not of this world”. Not of time and matter.
Learn what this means ” Where there are prophecies they will fail, But when that which is perfect has come, that which is in part is done away with”. That is what this is.
When Moses was insrtucted to “make things according to the pattern you saw on the mount” he was to make visible the invisible from where “if even a man or a beast touches they will die”. This is the purpose of every true prophet. To make visible the invisible things of God and His Kingdom, A place where flesh and blood can’t go but only to the respirited mind of faith as touching the invisible. And this is the whole purpose of the gospel, that those who are born of the spirit, being those who recieve the invisible to be more concrete than any substance of time and matter, that is those born of the spirit who see and enter the kingdom now for “all are pressing in”.  We don’t need  a 2nd coming Jesus.
   Christianity today is one of the great religions of the world and that is all it is. Just another religion. Having been robbed of its eternal purpose of “the kingdom of God at hand”. It ascribes the kingdom to another Jesus with another coming and another kingdom. They forfeit their inheritance as did the Jews of old. And it is because of this there is no saving power without the kingdom of God at hand. Your in need of another Jesus and another Kingdom. So they interpretation scripture this way.
   Don’t other religions and cults expect a savior? A saving one?  To save them and help them from their falleness or wicked world in the distant future? Then they expect a Kingdom of God in form of a man in a city made with mans devising.
 But we speak and we testify that “God has sent His Son Savior of the world” and if this testimony is not true then God must send somebody to save again. Then yes there will be a second coming savior and the cross has no value but to keep you in a 2000 year old prison of empty promises and the cross is a hoax. Is Gods “Kingdom at hand”of this world or not?
   The 2nd coming message is why the saving of the Christ of the cross is road blocked and detoured by a message “with all lying signs and wonders if possible to decieve the elect”. These people seek a second coming saving and it is because of this that the true gospel message has been lost. God sent not His Son into the world not to condemn the world (like a 7 year tribulation) but that through him the world would be saved.  And He did. That was the saving for all who believe.
So here is the demise of John the baptist. He was beheaded. He said “are you the coming one or do we seek another?”Yes he was a parrable too. He pictured that the only place man can take you to is the end of themselves, their time. The old mindset of the parable has to be cut off and replaced with “that which is perfect” which is perfect in understanding. That “God has given us everything that pertains to life and God-like-ness by the knowledge of Him who calls us to Glory”. As Christ’s mind struggle was at golgatha, the skull, so is ours. This is why it is said of John “There is no one born among women greater than he, but he who is least in the kingdom is greater than John, so we are. John failed as the greatest prophet and shown when he sent to Jesus saying “are you the coming one? This is why Jesus said “I do not recieve my testimony from man, for He knew what was in man. The need to be born again, of a different make up than time and matter. “To as many as recieved Him, to them He gave power to become His children. That is those who “are a kind of first fruits now and need not another Jesus to do this.
       They were all seeking a kingdom, and Jesus sent word back “tell him the things you see” So we do. Christ has come savior of the world and provided us the way. Himself saying “I am the way the truth and the light. And time must expire for eternity to begin
     Christ is the new and living. The old didn’t work. Remember “Father if there be any other way? Never the less thy will be done”. And He did. And He said “It is finished”. This is about as close to thomas you will ever get. “Stick your fingers in my side and see” This is “That which we have heard, which we have seen and handled concerning the word of life”. And this is the “Word that became flesh and dwelled among us” who returned to the Father and calls us to Himself, the new and living way that expired the law and the prophets. They were put out of business by Jesus sayng “Father that where I am they may be also” Him who said “I go away to the Father and you see me no more”? And Pauls revelation “We once knew Christ of the flesh, henceforth we know Him that way no more”. Not ever again. The Word was in the begiginng! The word was God! The Word was with God! The word Became flesh (not His natural composition) and dwelled among us” to return home like the parable of John 13.. So “to as many as recieved Him He gave power to become His chindren” is not those who recieved the man Jesus but the word. Which one is your Jesus? The man? Or the Word?
Look and behold it is Me and not another. Did I not say “Lo I am with you through the ages”? That “I will never leave you or forsake you? I am the same “Yesterday, today and forever”? Yes it is Me. It is I who “stands at the door and knocks”. Behold Me. I am the coming one coming through Word. I am Word in My natural composition and this is how I come. Not a first and a 2nd coming but over and over and over. Your “lord delays not His coming”.  For the Lord who does not tarry comes to you now in Word form. This is the bread of life that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world. Recieve me this way and not a silly waffer. Or worse another coming man for another coming kingdom on earth. John sent forth word “Are you the coming one?” That mindset was chopped off showing the “putting off the body of sin of the flesh” to be renewed in thinking. This is your rapture and you being “translated into the kingdom”.
When John said  “The Kingdom of God is at hand”. That is as far as man goes. He can deliver the Word. The rest is up to you. “To as many as believed, to them He gave power to become His children”. Did you recieve that? Not the later coming Jesus but Me? Word? I gave you the keys to the Kingdom.  Use them and enter in.
The Kingdom of God is now at hand.

The art of sowing and reaping

The art of sowing and reaping

Paul spoke about sowing and reaping in 1st Corinthians 15 for something to be sown corruptible raised incorruptible. First is the carnal, second is the spirit. It is these little jewels that we find in Scripture that we sow in our circumsized hearts that we process in the spirit of our mind to be raised in understanding.
 These constructs we talk about  are to be raised in understanding  and not laid out on a calender as Paul had learned saying “You observe days months seasons in years I am afraid for you that I have labored in vain”. It is not a one-time event of the body dying to be lifted back up or raised back up for it shall return to the dust. We learn by degree.
This is us putting on our new garments much like Joseph’s coat of many colors or like Isaiah “shake yourself from the dust of the earth and put on your beautiful garments. Because God is eternal invisible and immortal, it is as we put on these things displayed for us by word, we become more Godly.
When Christ became flesh and dwelt Among Us he demonstrated that God could coexist in a human body saying “for in him dwells the fullness of the godhead body and you are complete in him”, giving us hope to set out for that task. In this way we become Godly.
So it is as Paul says that “since we then be risen with Christ, which if you believe that scripture, you are. The resurrection is a foregone conclusion. Now that we are risen In Christ we should seek the things that are above” to aquire and put on in the loins of your mind. As Paul frequently said to put on Christ, lest we be found naked.
It is as we look into the law and the prophets and the feast and the ceremonies, that we learn and understand of the invisible attributes of God in the way that he relates to us while we are in our humanity.
God is not going to become a construct of time and matter.  Oh contrare. We transform, meaning transfigure into Him. That is our whole purpose of faith. God is not a created thing of time and matter like the 2nd coming seekers suppose. It is us that put on eternal things.
 We are not prisoners  in our humanity. It is perfectly capable of experiencing the fullness of the Godhead because our mind being a greater expanse than the external heavens that houses the spirit of God in which we have communion.
Communion is to be one with God, to have all things in common with Him. “We are a new creation, and “all things become new” in our understanding by sowing and reaping. And the things we have in common with him is him. In this way we are heirs and Joint heirs with Christ Jesus. The forever things are unchangeable always new never fading. Creation fades. Creation will be burned for the eternal to remain. (2 Peter 3 ) Let us be found their clothed in Christ by what we have reaped.
So “we are being transformed into the same full image into the glory of the Lord as by the spirit”. This takes place now as “we behold the face and the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”. What can’t be seen with the human eyes can be seen through God’s holy word. And understanding this is the place of our transformation, our Galgatha, the battle of our mind. We see him as he is, we become like him. We become pure even as He is pure.
Pure meaning invisible. That is why John the Apostle in his first epistle said “the world does not know us because it does not know Him. And the part about us the world does not know is the part about him they could not know carnally. They reject the invisible attributes seen in the Son. We accept them and receive them. And it is these invisible attributes that we received that they reject because they want to see it with their physical eyes.
“No man has seen God at any time” but the Son declares Him. And it is written of the Holy Spirit that “will take what is Mine and manifest it to you”. Yes, but not in a carnal way.
Christ said “he who has seen Me has seen the Father”. This thing we are talking about is seen with a different set of eyes and ears of the composition of time and matter but our new eyes and ears. “To him who has ears to hear”. So we do.
The sowing that we do in the reaping that we do is in our hearts. These things are not planted in dirt. Our circumsized heart  becomes our Garden of Eden.
Paul in his discourse of sowing and reaping in 1 Corinthians 15 used a term “each one in their own order” showing us that it has nothing to do with a 2nd coming. Those who wait to transfigure in that way are neutralized from their growth and don’t understand that we are to “follow those who through faith and patience inherit the promises”. They think the inheritance is later. For it is “the slothful steward who says the Lord delays His coming”.
So He comes to us consecutively in His word for He is the Word of God manifest or unveiled in this way for a new understanding.
The Kingdom of God is at hand

Death Defined

Download PDF
Death is commonly defined by as a lifeless body. Something that is unable to move on its own having no responses and no senses, cold and limp. In a state of decay.
But God defines death in different terms saying to Adam at the tree “in the day that you eat of it you show surely die”. We know that physically his body lived on for some 900 plus years, but in the day that he ate of the tree he surely died because he lost the Spirit of God. For it was God having created Adam from dust then breathing in him stated that he became a living soul but of Adam when he fell he lost the Spirit of God in his soul and became dead. Like Jesus said of the prodigal son “this one who is dead has returned to me and now is alive therefore cloth him with the finest garments and apparel”.
  This is what God does to us through Christ as he clothes us in Christ in the finest clothing and apparel being Christ himself, we put this on. This is our gift from God in Christ. We put on this righteousness and put off our Adamic self righteousness.
The first man was breathed into by God and became a living being.  When that man sinned he lost the Spirit of God and became spiritually dead. And so all humanity is dead to the things of the immortal eternal invisible God and Gods boundless timeless eternal always ready called the Kingdom at hand. This is the purpose for the gospel. To restore us to this position with Him. To be reborn of the spirit. “That which is flesh is flesh and that which is spirit is spirit, ye must be born again”. And “only those born of the spirit can see and enter the Kingdom”. John 3
This then is the reason why man must be born again to be like Adam before the fall. He needs to receive the breath of God and become a human being and a living soul. This is why Paul said we conclude that if one man died for all that all are dead. It is that man being born again, being born from above, is born of a new spirit. That’s what makes us new. We are then a new creation. That’s why Paul goes on to say “therefore we regard no one according to the flesh” that in Christ we are a new creation. “The old things have passed away all things become new”. And this “becoming new” is us being restored to what Adam lost receiving the breath of God and becoming alive. Becoming alive as it is “in Christ” saying “he who has the Son has life he who has not the Son has not life”. 1 John 5
So then the definition of what death is, is not by human standards of being a lifeless body but according to God’s standards, it is by not having his spirit and not having interaction with him through his spirit to His things in spirit for “God is spirit and truth and seeks such”. To become dead is to become separate from God in spirit. To loose the eternal spirit and return to the dust is the body’s destiny.
Man was removed from the garden saying “He drove man out of the garden and placed a flaming sword which turned every way to guard the tree of life, Lest he eat and live forever”.  Lest he become eternal. He lost the spirit and access to the fruit of life he became a walking dead. And so goes all humanity. They do not have the spiritual facilities to interact with the always present invisible God. The “lo I am with you always”. The Lord who says “I change not”. “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever”.
All the animals are dead to God. And this is what man became in the fall. Intuitively he fell from the ability to interact with God because he could not see or hear Him. This is why scripture speaks to those who “have ears to hear”. It is the fallen man who reads scripture that turns the message into religious observances for the human to do. But it is us who “come to the light to clearly see that what is required of me is done in God. (John 3.21) We receive the gift.
   It is through the religious observances that we can learn about God and redemption “but when that which is perfect comes, then that which is in part is done away with”. That which is perfect is a new understanding, and that is what expires the observances. As Paul described in Galatians that “we are under guardians and teachers until faith comes” not until a 2nd coming Jesus. There will never be a carnal conclusion like the 2nd coming gospel supposes. It was to the spirit that man fell and that is the redemption. Spirit. Scripture says that “flesh and blood will not inherit the Kingdom “. But our born again spirited man does rule over what used to be a lifeless body.
  This is the main conclusion in the book of Romans and chapter 8. It is the spirit of Him who raised Christ from the dead, who now lives in you who gives life to your dead body. That if we live by the mandates of the flesh we remain dead, but if by the spirit we put off the dead deeds of the body and put on the new man, we live while we have this decaying mortality. And as many as are led by the spirit? These are Gods offspring. So humanity is divided into two groups. Those “in Adam” of whom it is said “in the day that you eat you shall surely die, and those “in Christ”. In His day we shall surely live. This is resurrection of spirit which is life and not the body like a rapture for “flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom. (1 Corinthians 15)
So it is the carnal man who interprets scripture in a way that relates to his carnal senses that does not receive the things of God because ‘ the carnal man cannot understand the things of God because they must be spiritually discerned, comparing spiritual things with the spirit”.
It is in this way that the end time theories only temporarily appease the carnal senses. After the expiration of one theory they run to another and they totally miss out on knowing Him who wisks around us. He need not manifest Himself in a visible way for our calling is to become like Him. Our heavenly calling has to do with our invisible part. This is to become Godly. If He becomes visible then He would be a transgressor of His own immutable laws. He would become something that is foreign to Him. If He becomes a figure in time and matter He would destroy that too for we are called not to look at what is seen. For what is seen is temporary but that which is unseen is eternal”. Even as Peter says that “all things shall be burned so that what is eternal (invisible) will remain”. And those in the faith chapter “who look to the city whose building and maker is God”.
So it is those who do not “have ears to hear or eyes to see” who know Gods works but do not know His ways because they are looking to time and matter and not the invisible. These are dead to the things of God. “He who has the Son has life, he who has not the Son has not life” 1 John 5

Paul Transitions from Pharisee. PAMPHLET

Download PDF

It was the Pharisees who expected a physical Kingdom set up with a physical Savior and King on earth as seen in Luke 17.20+ saying “when does the Kingdom appear”. And Christs reply? “It cometh not with (carnal) observation”. Meaning it takes no physical form visible to the human eye.

Now Pauls starting point  was a Pharisee of Pharisees of the most religious sect so don’t be surprised that his writings started off with some of those concepts. Even as we see Paul try to have Timothy circumsized in Jerusalem after his encounter with Christ. Paul later taught that we are of the circumsision of the heart as the true Jew.
 Yes like all the Pharisees he was looking for a physical manifestation of a savior, King and Kingdom to appear on earth. From this he had to be transformed by the Spirit.
 The Pharisees also believed in the resurrection, but not the resurrection of faith but of fact. Terms like “the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of Heaven, and the resurrection are all misunderstood by the Pharisaic mind as carnally experienced events for the eyes to behold.
 As a Pharisee Paul believed in the resurrection and a physical savior in a physical City. From this Paul/Saul needed to be transformed in mind from and saved. He conveyed this to us saying “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind”. And he learned that “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God pulling down strongholds and everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”. Where? In the mind and not as visible events played out on planet earth.
The book of Acts spells out the qualifications to be an apostle to replace Judas as “one who witnessed the resurrected Lord. And Paul did, but not the way you think. He did not witness the event at the cross or the events after the empty tomb. But on the way to Damascus he saw a light 7 times brighter than the sun, brighter than humanly possible. Jesus said yo paul “for this reason I have appeared to you”. He took no carnally visible form. This is what qualified Paul as the 12th by being one who had witnessed the resurrection and one who had seen the Lord not as a man but in His true construct of light unknowable to the human senses as “the light that shines in the heart of every man.” Yes Paul had “endured as seeing Him who is invisible.” (Hebrews 11)  Do you?
 Paul had persecuted the people of the Way for believing in a resurrection and a kingdom different than the physical one that was common to him as a Pharisee. The difference between the two views was so large in fact that Paul was qualified as an enemy of Christ.  He consented to the murdering the people of The Way. The people of the Way perused the Kingdom and the resurrection as attainable.  They were not of the crowd of “sit and wait”.
So as one who is qualified having seen the Lord to be a true apostle Paul had to become a witness unto the resurrection. Paul strove for just this cause as he explained to Harod “think it not strange that God raises the Dead?” who also pointed out that this was the resurrection that “the fathers strove night and day hoping to attain”.  Not an event to wait for or something to be experienced after the body dies.
Paul acknowledged in Philippians that he sought to “lay hold of why Christ laid hold of” him, to attain to the richness and the fullness of Christ, to become a perfect man, “to attain to the resurrection” one revelation at a time saying “to the degree so walk ye in it”. He said that all who are mature are seeking the resurrection. But the resurrection that he was seeking was not like he had thought when he was a Pharisee. That mindset only made him at odds with the true Christ who said “why do you kick against the goads?
The purpose for Paul was to transform from a Pharisee expecting a physical kingdom to experience  revelation by degree, one revelation after the other until he attain to the resurrection, to attain his full status as “a fellow member and citezine of the house of God in the here-and-now for that was his calling and goal. This too is for us to learn from Paul’s journey “by degree”. Let us go up to Jerusalem in our understanding.
Paul was “chief among sinners” saying “that Christ would show in me first a pattern, yes a progression, for all to believe “. For all with a Pharasitic mindset to transition out of that beleif.  To be saved from.
  So Paul learned to understand that the Kingdom of God is not to carnally assimulate. He said “flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom ” but the inner man of the Spirit does.  The one made in His image brought forth by word and spirit being “a kind of first fruits of His creation” of invisible components and of eternal composition.
This is the object of our faith. Anybody who seeks Christ in any other way than Paul encountered in the bright light is looking for God to appear in the construct that is not natural to him. Earth. As it is written “I am the Lord, I change not”. This is the very reason why if one does come in the way the Pharisees accept or expect of a physical Kingdom in a physical City they are misled and their leaders are Pharasees, sons of Satan and a brood of vipers, whited sepulchers full of dead mans bones. Those are the words of Jesus to that bunch. They are not entering the kingdom “At Hand” and are not allowing those who are trying to do so to enter”. And if God does honor the end time seekers desire of a visible Kingdom, than He would have to apologize to the Jews for condemning them for that very thing.
And so it is Christianity Today that predominantly proclaims another coming Christ with an earthen fabricated kingdom with another saving act like the Pharisees anticipated.  Being spiritually blind they never say what Christ told them to. “Go village to village and house to house proclaiming the kingdom of God is at hand”. They parallel and align themselves with the Pharisees mindset of the Christ and His kingdom in an earthen construct saying “when does the Kingdom of God appear” and they call it a 2nd coming.  It’s just a re-hash of an expired and fulfilled parable used in times pa
The purpose of all the law, the sacrifices, the feasts and the prophets were to only make visible the invisible components, concepts and attributes of “lo I am with you always”. “Christ,  the same yesterday today and forever”.
So it is those who reject God in this way wonder why there’s no power in their gospel. In this way they allege themselves with the Pharisees and come to the same conclusion. They regurgitate scripture and come up with the same conclusion saying the Kingdom comes with carnal observation and deny the saving of faith and they call it a 2nd coming. This is a phrase that is not found once in scripture.
The power to defeat death has now become a gospel to hold in limbo and wait for another. Isn’t that what the Pharisees were doing saying “when does the kingdom come?” Of whom the Christ answered “it cometh not with observation”. Their Christ was looking at Him ready to save them and they rejected, despised and killed Him.
If you believe what Saul/Paul did and you see this luminous revelation, you should commence your journey  and sojournship as pilgrims from a physical, visible Kingdom as did Paul. Depart from the end time seeker sit and waits and join the followers of The Way.
 We are of those whom it was written of that “they looked for the city whose builder and maker is God”.  Whose construct is superior to time and matter being “the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundations of the world”. Even as Paul finally understood in Colossians that “if you then be risen with Christ, seek the things that are above” where Christ sits. And “while we look to the unseen, for the things that are seen are temporal but the things that are above, the invisible,  are eternal. In this way he transitioned from being a Pharisee expecting a physical kingdom.
If we follow Paul through the succession of Revelations “to the degree ye are able” then we too can hope to acquire the resurrection.  Not only that, but we can see by his consecutive revelations an exchange takes place. An old mindset for a new mindset. An old concept for a new concept a physical for an invisible.
That is why we are asked to be renewed in the spirit of our mind for that is our invisible place for the invisible God. In this way we are the temples of the Living God and not a construct of matter on planet earth called Jerusalem. We are complete in him who is the head of all principality and Power and “it is in Him we live and dwell and have our being”.  We are in CHRIST our destination. We do not  need a physical Jesus to be “raised and seated” meaning resurrected and empowered in the Kingdom for we have this (Eph 2.8) And As Isaiah said of the Lord.”with My dead body they shall arise”. And so we do.
We have to learn to quit seeing God as a 3rd party distant, disconnected entity needing to reappear physically to complete His work because “it is finished”. We do not need a 2nd coming physical appearing for saving. He is the “lo I am with you always”.
It was Paul who laboriously stated “be ye reconciled to God the Father” for this purpose for ‘today is the day of salvation.”
 It is this article and this chapter as all subsequent chapters are meant to define and explain and reason without doubt that the kingdom of God is just as much at hand and available now as it was when Christ first proclaimed it. Amen
The Kingdom of God is at hand! He is present to perform His work in us now.

Abraham’s Shield Part 1

Download PDF
The father’s manifesto of himself is his son. His son has articulated him to perfection. The Son said it is finished.  Nothing else needs to be said. His life was the Fathers word broken down into mentally consumable bites called revelation. Here are some of His closing words to us said for our safety and security.
                    Our sanctification
Jesus Christ said father I pray not that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from evil.
Christ told Abraham the same thing saying “I am your Shield, your exceedingly great reward”. This defines our sanctification. This is what it means to be “in Christ”. We are shielded. We who have this are protected from evil by word. The same mind that said “let there be light” said “keep them from Evil” and God the Son in Word form went to Abraham and said “I am your Shield, your exceedingly great reward”. This is what Adam lost and departed from. This is part of the restoration. And if God is our Shield what can get past God?  As though he has a blind spot? As though our Shield has holes in it?
 This we have as long as we participate in our sanctification to become holy. And if we keep his word, He says He will come to us and make his home in US. For some of us he has already done that. We are equipped with him. WORD! We learn that we are complete in Him who is the “head of all principality and Power”. We are stamped with His certification of His Word and Spirit, “for even the angels in heaven behold the face of the Father in these little ones”. This is us. His offspring. We who are protected by his shield. We are in this place called sanctification.
Sanctification is easily understood in the words of Embassy and Ambassador. An embassy is like a little Island, a country within a country. Like when one goes to any Embassy to seek Refuge from the laws of that land. Christ is our refuge. He said “come unto me and i will give you rest”. This is seen in the promise given in the book of Luke “that we being delivered from the hands of our enemies and all that hate us, would be able to serve God all the days of our lives in true righteousness without fear”. Why? Because “He who fears has not been made perfect in love” because “perfect love casts out fear”.
We do not wait for another age for this to be accomplished. We ” work this out with fear and trembling” with Him who said “fear Me”! We believe His word for sanctification today. We are kept from evil in this way.
As with a defector, or a political dissident. The moment they entered the embassy they are immediately subject to the governing laws and powers of another land. They get asylum from that which was charged against them. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ”.This is our Embassy.  Here we have amnesty. “He who believes in Me does not come into judgment but has passed from death to life”. They are no longer bound to the former laws and requirements. They have full  amnesty and protection from what tormented them. They are free from the laws of the land. This is what we have. This is what divides between those born in Adam and those in Christ.
Paul said “Now that you have known God, or rather having been known by Him, why is it that you return  the week and beggarly elements of the earth”?  Meaning, now that you have received Gods invisible genetic code written on your circumcised heart, why do you subject yourself to the multiple time dispensed theories of another savior, another Jesus? The saving has happened for the sanctified.
Collisions 2 says “Let no one cheat you through philosophy or according to the basic principles of the world and not according to Christ”. Meaning Gods invisible nature and not  the building blocks of creation. That we are a part of something much greater than the substance of time and matter being “flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone” not of Adams flesh and bones but Christ’s invisible substance.The invisible building blocks of the unseen substance we call eternity. The origin and object of our faith “while we look not to the seen but what is unseen, the invisible “for that which is visible is temporary but that which is invisible is eternal”.
So in this way we are now “fellow citezine and members and saints of the house hold of God”. We do not suscribe to a future kingdom and reigning king. We are in asylum and the safety of the kingdom of God which is “at hand” if we hold fast to His words.
This defines for us our sanctification. Christ said “Father I pray not that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from evil”. That we are “in the world but not of the world”. We are not restricted to the things of EMC= square. So we are kept from evil, us who are born of God. As it says in 1st John that “we abide in His Word and the wicked one touches us not”. And those of us who know how to apply this principle “can go boldly to the throne room of Grace” for any purpose  anytime we want and have not only a asylum but our citezineship.
This place is not a throne room of Grace in a physical place, the one not built by hands of man but ” built by God Eternal in the heavens”. This is our Embassy. A safe place in any land. This is our sanctification. This is our provision from the father. As Christ prayed “keep them from evil” so he does. If we don’t know this principle we cannot apply it consistently. Or we can know it and walk away from it by not walking in the light of the revelation that the spirit is showing us. We get into trouble and not believe His word. We try to cover ourselves.
“Satan is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour experienced by our Brotherhood in the world” is the believers in the world that have left the embassy and set aside their Ambassadorship, their sanctification, and subject themselves to the things they were delivered from. In their own mind and their own will they violated their own sanctification. They stepped away from the provisions and protection afforded to us by word. And there are many that have not learned correctly to walk in sanctification. They don’t know how to apply faith sanctify themselves from their fallen entanglements and disbelieve the promises.
We are are to “follow those who through faith and patience inherit the promises”. The Lord who “delayed not His coming” comes to us even now by revelation “that where He is we may be also” as Christ prayed. We “walk in the light as He is light” “for in Him is no darkness at all”. And “in Him there is no sin, he who sins has neither seen Him or known Him”, but we know Him. And as Christ told Thomas “he who has seen me has seen the Father.  From now on you have seen Him and known Him. If we are “in Christ” as scripture says, we are in this place of sanctification. In this way we know God.
Sometimes the devil can be our own reflection in the mirror of self-condemnation. He is the persona that is the the contrast of God that brings condemnation in contrast of the righteousness afforded by faith and the blood of Christ. Scripture shows us when Jesus Christ rebuke Satan in Peter saying “get behind me” which is where he should be for us. The Roaring Lion in this way becomes a toothless roadkill. There’s no condemnation and in this way the accuser of the Brethren is cast down. By word.
When the disciples returned to Jesus from their mission of delivering the gospel that “the Kingdom of God is at hand” they said for “even demons are subject to us in your name”. To this Christ replied I beheld as Satan fell from heaven like lightning. In this way transformation had taken place in the heavens of their mind. In the twinkling of an eye the accuser of the brother was put under foot as incompetent, lifeless.
We are instructed to put on the shield of Faith which is able to quench all, I repeat, all the fiery darts of the wicked one. This is how we do it. This appropriately places your sinful nature at the cross and not on your self for “by his stripes we are healed”. Only the old man can walk in self-condemnation and inflict upon himself the accusations of another. Why? Because there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus who walk not according to the flesh but according to the spirit. And what is the spirit? God’s opinion of you who believe. He is the “come unto me and I will give you rest from your toil”.
There is resident in religion today the idea that Christians need it in receive blame and false humility and make good on things sound reason says we need to make bridges for relationships to be rebuilt we are not to accept the wrong to prolong a bad relationship on him was laid the sin of us all and if we walk in sin and condemnation we reject the gift the Lord said Peace I give you not as the world gives give are you oh the joy and the peace in the blessedness of the justification of God blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute any sin blessed are those whose Lawless Deeds are covered up this is the righteousness of faith in the gift of God in Christ this is not giving us permission to do wrong but empowering us to be right
You see Satan knows that if he can keep you in condemnation and false humility, the continual confessing of sin,  that he can keep you at the foot of the cross. He can keep you in your lower nature, and he can keep all false religions alive.
It is said of our great high priest that “once we are purged we should have no more conscience of sins”. That we should no longer have a sinful conscious. This is what it means when 1st John says young men you have overcome the wicked one because the word of God abides in you. This is what it means. And those of the House of Moses who were instructed to look into the pole with the serpent wrapped around it, that this would make them whole thus signifying the Christ of the cross who bore our sins for us to be whole.
If you have committed a crime or a wrongdoing or damage to another person or his Goods you should repair for such as the law of the land but the things we speak are the laws of the mind and of the spirit. The kingdom of God is not in what you eat or what you wear but in righteousness peace and joy of the Holy Spirit. This we have in our sanctification the place behind the vail being shielded with faith to ward off the darts. This is peace with God this is acceptable to God.
Our justification becomes the building blocks for our sanctification this is the purpose of the book of Nehemiah to rebuild the wall around the city and that is why Tobias and Sanballat blamed and accused and ridiculed and took on the voice of the enemy for them to hasten to build the wall.
When the accuser of the Brethren is cast down, addictive patterns stop. You are no longer motivated in this way. Accusation and condemnation is powerless. For all the time, money and visits to the doctor for mental conditions, they can be cured by this one thing.
1 John 5.4 This is the victory that overcomes the world,  our faith”.
Our faith in His word contains all the tools we need for victory anytime, anywhere, if we are “in Christ”. This is our Embassy.  He is our Embassy. This is our sanctification, our shield, our exceedingly great reward”.
The Kingdom of God is at hand.

WORD

Download PDF
In the beginning was the word, the Word was with God and the Word was God. And the Word was an emination of pure thought we call the Father. Like us, our word is the product of our thoughts. God is ingenuity design and creativity and he is not limited to just these things, but these are the eternal expressions from before time and matter that we talk about. The thought expressed himself by word and the Word is His Son, an exact replica, an abstract of the Father. He who has the Son also has the Father  for the two are one. “He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son”. 2 John 1.9
 This is similar to how we are made in the image of God, our thoughts and our words. For this is how we shall be judged and what we are accountable for saying “you shall be judged by every word you utter”. A man is only as good as his word. The only begotton is Gods perfect Word and the first thing that came forth from thought. His Son is Word and not a man. Gods word is His first extension that did not come to be when He was spoken for He pre-existed with the Father as pure thought. This is the “only begotton of the Father”. It is in this way that “we have the mind of Christ. Pure thoughts of the Godhead, Spirit and truth. “For the Father seeketh such” to interact like Him. This is what pleases God.
The only manifestation from God that is God is word. “No one has seen the Father at anytime, but the Son declares Him”. He makes the Father manifest. Gods manifesto of Himself is His Son. The Son is His declaration of who He is. In this way the word/Son of God made everything.  “All things were made by Him and for Him.
The word of God was in the beginning with God. It was the word of God that existed in the intellect of the father without Him speaking. The Son was not deprived of any aspect of the invisible intellect we call the Father “for in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body” being a body of principles,  intellect, ingenuity and design and not something tangible to the carnal senses. A man He is not. Without Word nothing that was made was made, be it powers and principalities visible and invisible. Everything that is made was made of word for it was word and spirit and the intellect being the father that coexisted equally before any created thing.
In the beginning was the Word, “and the Spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters”. These three are before the beginning and in this way they are harmoniously co-equal, co-creators. Pre-creation emination and reflections of the Father. Harmonious and inseparable. Christ saying “I and the Father are one”. And of the Spirit He had “without measure”. The Son showed Himself to us in this way. He spoke and it was so. He said “Lazarus come forth ” And He Came Back From The dead. He did the works of the Father in this way.  He spoke a thing and immediately it was so.  Life is in the Son. “He who has the Son has life”. This eternal life.
And it is not as though the word expresses only a meaning or a description. The Word carries with Him the very escense of the Father. “He comes and His reward is with Him”. All the attributes, personas and charecrtistics of the Father, being invisible attributes, which are impossible to separate.
This is why creation was made. So that thru contrasts we could understand with clarity who the Father is with tangible things and to take the various concepts we learn about them and re-assemble Him in ourselves to become godly. God-like. Thus is the calling to godliness.  God-like-ness.
It is that word conveys the very essence of the father and not just documents to be fulfilled 2000 plus years later as many suppose. That saving is subject to time which in fact is not God at all, for there would be something God is restricted by, and God is not restricted. The one who was and is and is to come is equally God in every time and anytime of every age and any age. This is the gospel of God, “the power unto salvation” unfettered, unhindered and un-stoppable, even by time.”He came to His own and His own did not receive Him. But to as many as received him to them he gave power to become his children even to those who believe in his name”. It is by the gospel of Christ that God starts and completes his work in us and in no other way. The author and finisher of our faith” has been written even unto completion of salvation. “God in these last days has spoken by His Son” then He sat down waiting for His work to be accepted by you. Christ responded to John the Baptist “why do you seek another”. So we too must ask ourselves. What are we waiting for because “Today is the day of salvation”.
If a doctor give you a pill or a serum and says here take this and you will be healed, you believe him. But you reject the one who says to have faith in him because there’s no visible physical response you can handle or see so you doubt him. He whom you seek is standing at your door. “That which we’ve seen, heard and handled concerning the word of life. We write this so truly you can have koinania with us, oneness, with the Father and the Son.
So if we understand God in this way we can understand the word of God in his true composition of who he is. He is invisible thought before being spoken. He is the anatomy of God. He is Gods genetic code broken down into sound bites for our spiritual consumption. We hear, we believe and we speak. Do you see what we are talking about? Then you have eyes to see. A new understanding. This is your new nature.
 It was the word of God who put on Humanity temporarily saying “the word became flesh and dwelt among us”. And because of this we beheld the glory of the only begotten of the father, an exact replica. The Word was not originally a man. Christ temporarily became that. If we were to mimic the man we would all be wearing robes and sandals with our hands folded together in front of us. But He portrayed all of the Fathers invisible attributes for us to see with the eyes of our understanding. And as we see Him as He is in this way, we ingest Him and become what we eat. This is why He is “the bread of life that comes down from God out of Heaven” the place of pure truth and eternal light not visible to the human eye but made known by revelation through His Word. This is the true light the 24 hour days only mimick. We see Him as He is and become more and more like Him. (1 John 3.2)  and John 14 He who has seen Me has seen the Father. We see the Son in the Father then we see ourselves there too. We are “in Christ “. This is the elect. We see that we too existed in the mind of the Father being predestined of this sort. We are “a kind of first fruits of His creation” as we put on word, meaning the genetics of God, we are transfigured in this way, one revelation at a time “to a perfected man”  (Eph 4)
“The Word became flesh” But his Humanity was short-lived because that is not his natural composition. It was said “a short work I will do on earth, and I will finish it in righteousness”. And He did saying “it is finished”. And if he appears again a man, he is not in his natural composition. And if He appears for another work, then He was not finished. And if we see Him a man, then into what are you being transformed? Into a man? A man He is not for He said “I go to the Father and you see Me again no more” speaking of His humanity. (John 16.10)
God the Father with God the son and God the spirit in their natural compositions are all Eternal Immortal and invisible and inseparable,  broken down only in concept by word for us to assimulate. This is how they can say “lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the ages”. Meaning any age in every age. They are in their true and natural composition always unperturbed and unfettered and perfectly insulated. This is the peace of God for those who know. It is for us to awaken there. This our full sanctification. To wake from our Adamic slumber where he was split. We can say like John the Baptist “He who has the Bride is the Bridegroom, therefore my joy is complete”. John’s purpose was accomplished saying “they must increase and I must decrease” (corrected from the Greek)
Even when Christ was in the flesh He was full of the Spirit and said “I and the Father are one” describing His invisibleness and ours too. “The world does not know us because it did not know Him. It did not know Him because they could not see Him.” They looked at the robe, sandals and the lowly colt and missed out on the invisible counterpart of Him on a white horse with His garments stained in blood whose name is…THE WORD OF GOD!
If we can understand the son pre-existed like this being thought of the father then we too can understand the elect. The elect are those who existed in the mind of the father as a thought. And as receiving word we return to the father in this way saying “My Word shall not return to Me void, but shall accomplish all My desire”. And He did. These are the elect. This is how as we look to the word s “be holding in a mirror the image of the Lord we are being transformed from glory to the Glory. It is because of this we are the called. And having put on humanity we awake to the invisible things to God through the gospel. This is how we confirm that we are the elect. To realize we are in the world but not of the world. We realize that “when that which is perfect is come that which is in part is done away with it” because we receive the things the father has thought for us. We understand the counterpart of all the law, the feasts and the prophets is the Son. “Lo the volume of the book is written of Me” said the Son.
For those of us who have received God’s spirit and God’s word we lack nothing of the father. “For of His fulness we have received”. So as the Word prayed while he was human, He said “father that they may be with us where I am they may be also”.  If we have word and spirit that saying is fulfilled in us.
When we look into the mirror of the word with the reflection of the Holy Spirit, and we see His attributes compared to what we are, we are not satisfied until that reflection shows in us the same thing. The transformation has happened. We shall not be satisfied till we awakened in His likeness. (from the Adamic slumber) We become godly. God-like and that likeness. It’s not that we awaken from a 24 hour sleep. With that we awaken from the sleep on Humanity placed on Adam when he had his ribs removed we are awake and we are pre adamic pre-sleep adamic. And from Isaiah  “awake! Put on your beautiful garments! Arise and shake yourself from the dust of the earth.” And so we do. How beautiful are the feet who bring glad tidings”. That’s right. This is the gospel.
  It is in this way we return to being made in His image. God is not a body like we have as many suppose. And it is in this way we are instructed to put off the flesh. It is to realize that we too are not a physical body but an embodiment of principles and eternal truths. We just temporarily occupy this tent. If we have learned to put them on we can say too that we are one with the Father and the Son (John 5) This is putting on Christ. Paul said in Colossians 3 that we put off the body of the sins of the flesh. The embodiment of the thoughts we adopted from Adam.
So if we look to the word and we put word on, we are new embodiment of principles. Just like a political body. As the Constitution is an embodiment of principles that people stand on but we stand on the word of God and say like Him “everything is put underfoot. So if we understand that God is not a physicality,  we can put this on in the way that He is, invisibly by faith. This is our embelical cord to the Almighty.
When Adam sinned he did not put on different body in a physical way. He put on a body of disbeleifs. He disbelieved the Living God. These are the principles he put on not a different physical body. God created the physical body then said “it is good, very good”. it was the mindset that he adopted that breads fear and self-sufficiency as evidenced by the fig leaf. And that was his sin that Adam put on was an embodiment of principles of self sufficiency. This is what we need to put off is what was passed on to us by Adam. We need to put on that which was passed on to us by the man Christ. To be “in Christ” is an embodiment of principles and not a different carnality. Our old one gets renewed in purpose.

 To think that we need to put off the carnal body is just a religious belief for God made it “good, very good”. The body can only do what the mind tells it to do. And if the mind is renewed the carnal body does what the new mind formatted by word tells it to do. It works harmoniously the way it was created to do in the beginning. Like we are insructed that we being raised with Him, we should walk in newness of life” so we do. Resurrected. Just like a gun that cannot kill by itself, the old man can be an instrument of murder. This was portrayed with Cain who slew his brother. The body like the gun can do nothing of itself.


 To “put off the body of the sins of the flesh” is to be put on a new awareness. It is in this way that we are raised in understanding. “Through the knowledge of Christ ” (2 Peter )  This is our resurrection. We put on a new awareness, a God awareness.
Paul had finally transitioned from the Pharasitic religious mindset of having to put off the body in a physical way to “putting off the sins of the flesh” being the sins of unbelief, fear, doubt and all that embodies. This is the true meaning of the resurrection and not the death of the flesh itself but the death old thought system of doubt and fear that disbelieving God breads. “Also put these off”
Just as the body is dead without the spirit, the body cannot live without the embodiment of principles of a spirit. In this way we have the mind of Christ. That is if we understand that Gods true self is an invisible embodiment. And we so are we if we can adapt. The physical body will follow. As John said “we are righteous even as He is righteous”. The declaration makes it so if you are able to receive it.
In Romans  6 Paul talks of how “we are buried with Christ through baptism so that we too can walk in newness of life “. Yes in newness of life in resurrection power. Just as Paul prayed for us to know “the great power that is in us is the same power that He used to raise Christ from the dead”. We just need to know how to use it. It is His Spirit in us that gives us life now if we can receive it. This is why Paul said “I strive to attain to the resurrection ”  who also said of those of the law “strove day and night hoping to attain. So we do. This should be our goal too. If we can see that it is an embodiment of principles and not a new physical body this is attainable. And it is or the word would not have put on flesh to prove it to us. Did He not say “I am the resurrection and the life” while He Co habit ed with humanity?
Just as any nationality or religion contains laws and principals, and that anybody that holds to those partakes of that political or religious body by beleiving them and claiming association with them to be one with them? In the same way we partake of the body of Christ. He is the word of God, and as we learn and are renewed in this way we become the word that transforms.
Another physical Christ is an illusion of the religious mind that distains the physicality that God made and said “it is good very good”.
So when we take communion, we partake of His body and collectively announce newness of life. When we research writings of Christ, it is to put on Christ,  to recieve Word, the very body He truly is of being “the Word of God”. We see Him as He is invisible and cloth ourselves in this. This is how we are “in Christ ” in His embodiment of principles. Our current physicality is perfectly capable to do so and we fulfill the verse that says “as He is, so are we in this world.
   So like we’ve said. When Adam fell there were no broken bones or skinned knees. There was no lightnings or thunderstorms or cataclysmic events. He fell in spirit.  In understanding,  in doctrine and principals. This is the restoration the redemption the renewal and the resurrection.
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND

Revelation, Light 5/4/16

Download PDF
Pure unfettered word of God.
This is “the light that shines in the heart of every man”. And this light is not like the light of a 24-hour day, for God said in the beginning “let there be light”.  But there was a light that pre-existed the spoke. And the Light, this pre-existing light, is that which we testify to. This eternal light that shines everywhere all the time, that is not noticeable to the human eye, who “shines in the heart of every man who cometh into the world”. This is the Word of God, the very essence of God that brings us life. This is the very DNA of God broken down into fragments for our understanding, for our spiritual consumption to become godly,  Godlike. We call Him “the Bread of life that comes down and gives life to the world”.
This is the Light Paul encountered that was “7 times brighter than the sun”. Brighter than humanly ascertainable.
This is how God is light and “in him is no Darkness at all” For “the light shines into darkness and the darkness does not comprehend it, but to as many as to receive the light, to them He gave power to become the children of God even those who believe on the name”.
It is “the light that shines in the darkness that has shown in our hearts to bring to light the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”.  And this shining is for our transfiguration into His realm “from the Glory to the Glory as by the Spirit” to the spirit.
The “Father of glories” begat us in this way to be “a kind of first fruits of His creation”. His creation of the eternal substance only pictured in the Law and Prophets.  Then more fully seen in the incarnate Christ , not being the robe and sandals but the invisible attributes of God seen in action.
This is that light. The light of God and the word of God are the pre creative substance that seeks you. And the Eternal Light, unlike the light we are familiar with. The light we are familiar with is a ray that has a starting and stopping point. But the light we are talking about is an explosion that emits in every direction. This is a light that cannot be deflected for it permeates everything.  “The lines  (rays) have gone out to the ends of the earth. The light of God is the very essence of God “for in him is no darkness at all”. That is why the light of God is knowledge because the light is another description of the intellect that the Word who became flesh exceplified.
In him was the light of men we Behold Him he was crowned with death our death so that we could be crowned with life his life man was made to be crowned with Glory and Honor

Paul. Resurrection by degree.

Download PDF
“To the degree you are able to receive”
 Paul said this to the Philippians that he presses on to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of him, that if I may by any means attain to the resurrection of the dead. Something end time seekers think is impossible.  To attain to the resurrection before his departure. That is what Paul strove for, and so should we. As he said “to as many as are mature have this mind”. And so we do. Anything short of this is a truncated gospel. For even the 12 tribes strove night and day in hopes to attain the resurrection too. (Acts 26.7) If you can learn to understand this then maybe you can see why Rehab laid the wood out in order in the attic where she hid the messengers.
    So it is the gospel that teaches us by degree we grow. We put Christ in in this way, including the resurrection. To the degree that we believe “let it be according to your faith”. And “to the degree” does not refer to a temperature like 80 or 90 degrees Fahrenheit but it still shows us that by increments, that as our faith grows and we walk in His light we apply new revelation to our conscience and our minds. This is our transformation and Transfiguration now. Paul said not that he has attained but he “reaches out to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of” him. Of which he said in the next chapter, that it was for equality to “let this mind be in you”. And it’s not just let it be in you but develop it by degree from one revelation to another, which is the unveiling, the pulling back of the curtain “for the eyes of your understanding to see” that we and all mankind were made in the beginning to show the likeness of God. From this we fell, to this we are restored. And it is through  the gospel “by degree” that we are fully restored.
   So when scripture says “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling ” it shows that salvation is not a once saved always saved and it is not a 2nd coming act from Christ.  Salvation is definitely not a down payment as you sit and wait for another coming of another Jesus at a Rapture for a future resurrection. That my friend is the Pharasitic belief that Paul was to graduate from through various degrees to find himself to have the same mind as Christ, who thought it not robbery to be equal with God.
  And when God made Adam in the beginning with him, there was equality. This is why scripture says that by salvation “we are joint heirs with Christ”.  And also “in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body, and “you are complete in Him who is the head over all powers and principalities” already so He need not come back to do so.
   It is by revelation of the word in the mind, and then the trial by fire in our lives that “brings us forth as gold” testing  the things of “hath God really said?” That we may be found of pure faith. This is what it means to be to a saint, and called to be holy. We are talking about putting on invisible attributes and not religiously Pious activity, behavior or attitude.
  Now when Christ was coming back down from his Transfiguration the disciples asked “why then do the scribes say Elijah must come first? And Jesus Christ answered them “Elijah has come if you’re able to receive it”. And it is in this way that Christ showed that if they were able to believe in to see and understand, they would move forward and receive the promise that was spoken “to the degree ye are able”. It is also said to “follow those who through faith and patience inherit the promises”?  Yes. This is the invisible attributes that we talk about. Think of it like “the coat of many colors” of Joseph for that is what the coat portrayed.
  You see Gods fulfilling of the promises are not dispensed by time as many think. They are not to be put on a calendar then wait for the event. It was the slothful steward who said; my lord delays his coming. Scripture says “you observe days, months, seasons and years. I am afraid that I have labored for you in vain.” And in this way 2nd coming end time fascinations hold you “in vain”. But for us, we see with the eye of our understanding and receive by faith, then trial by fire, and presto. You get the thing that was promised. Which is? Another aspect of the nature of God given to us. You get it, then you move on to the next attribute to be attained by degree. So “to the degree you are able”.
  This is proof that the gospel is progressive, and that Pauls messages map out for us his transfiguration for ours. “He who receives a righteous man receives a righteous mans reward,  he who receives a prophet receives a prophets reward” and he who is least in the kingdom is greater than these” and we say if you have been received into the Kingdom,  then you stand on the works of these men who are the foundation of the kingdom.  And maybe you can walk down from this high place with your own tidbit. This is our journey into the promise land, the land of faith.
And Paul’s main obstacle” “If I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
   So you can realize Elijah can come for you today. Elijah represents the spirit or teaching of Elijah, and a perspective of the messenger that takes you up by degree in the spirit of Elijah that in this way we can say to you “Paul must come first before the kingdom because you have to follow the spirit of His teachings to when Paul says “you are no longer strangers but fellow members and saints of the household of God. But Paul didn’t always see that. He used to believe in a future kingdom but he learned it in one of his consecutive revelations. Eph 3.3 “by revelation God  made known to me this mystery. “
 Elijah is said to  restore the sons to the father? That is what that spirit and teaching does. and has greater interpretation then generally understood. It is us, his offspring,  being restored to God the Father. Is not that the whole purpose of the gospel? “I plead with you therefore by the mercies of God that you be reconciled to the father” and with these words we say Amen.
 So we put on Christ, we walk in the things that he is showing us and given us and we go up by degree, pictorially speaking of ascending to the throne, or going up to Jerusalem “by degree”. And when Jesus Christ said “I and the father are one” He was showing for us that equality with the father is possible while we are incarnate, that Resurrection with him is possible while we are here on earth, that the Jewish belief of the future resurrection of the future time is at odds with those of us who are called to come up hither. So we do.
   So if you are able to receive these words then let it be according to your faith but even if not I’m sure God will show you that too.
It was Paul who was to deliver a gospel that would walk out for us a transition from a Pharasitical Resurrection and future Kingdom mindset to being resurrected with Christ and accept our new national status of being “fellow citizens in the Kingdom  and members of the house hold of God” now.
   Like Isaiah said “with His dead body our dead bodies will rise”? He bore our sins and “by his stripes we are healed” to what Adam Lost In the Garden of Eden. For those of us who believe? Some bear fruit, 10 fold some 20 and some 100-fold. It is in this way we grow by degrees and by increment to become more and more christ-like, more Godly more god-like.
The revelation of Jesus Christ is not at a one-time so-called public offering by a Second Coming but by a continual bathing in the Revelation through the word for He was the word that became flesh so that we in the flesh would become word. And the Word was with God and the Word was God”. We inherit all things in Christ. Everything that he has is ours including this mind that is equal with God. That is why Paul said “we go on to perfection, to a full stature and full measure of the son of God”. And it is because Paul had to transition from a physical resurrection and mindset to the correct resurrection and mindset. And he had to do this by degree. That he had to lay hold and teach to us as he showed us through his Epistles, the transitions. And this is why the more current or recent writings of Paul are more powerful and more clear and less Pharisaic then his first writings and preaching.
    So next we will talk about John the Apostle and show how his preaching is greater than any of Paul’s because Paul was to speak of things “yet to be revealed” and he chose to go up by degree, but John describes the full package. He talks about the overcomer and those who have overcome the world by faith and need not a second coming Jesus. In John the transition is complete therefore he has a greater message.
   It is here that we will conclude our messages of Paul and the resurrection
   The kingdom of God is at hand

Manifest Sons of God Pt 1

Isaiah 8:17 “here am I in the sons whom God has given me, we are for signs and wonders”
   Here is a glimpse of what Isaiah saw, glorified Sons, replicates of the father. To those who have become a “perfect man to the full stature and measure of the Son of God” in the here and now. This is the purpose of the Gospel. (Eph 4.13) This is true godliness and the reason for our journey here on earth. Did not the Word of God become flesh on earth? He came in the likeness of a man but was filled with the Spirit and Father? It was Paul said “let this mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus Who coming in the form of man thought it not robbery to be equal with God”.
    You see man was made in the image and likeness of God to be crowned with glory and honor, to interact with God perfectly. This is the gift, for “of His fullness we have received “. And he is glorified when we are glorified for that is the purpose of the Gospel “bringing many sons to glory”.
  It is through the gospel that we receive God’s genetic code, His invisible-ness on our invisible soul, mind and Spirit. These are our invisible parts and God is invisible. So it is our invisible parts that interact with God perfectly. This is why John said “the world does not know us because it did not know Him”. Because they cannot see him who is invisible and so they can’t see the invisible side of us, being Gods invisible attributes seen in Christ that we have put on.  The part of us that “not a hair on your head shall be hurt”. And this is how it is fulfilled  that “he who receives you receives me,  and he who rejects you rejects Me”. This is the equality. Can you receive this?
  Paul was trying to convey this when he said “now that you’ve been known by God (like Adam knew Eve) why do you seek the weak and beggarly elements of the Earth.” And this knowing Gods word is His genetic information and transformation saying “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.  We are reformatted and fitted with the very genetic code of the Living, eternal God in this way. We become holy, invisible. This part of us is like God.
   Each human being  has the ability to house not the external heavens  of the moon and stars  but to perfectly accommodate  the expanse of the Holy Spirit of the Living God, which is much greater than the heavens that can only “declare His handiwork”, but the heavens are not able to contain him or represent Him. Just point to Him.
   The heavens are just like the screen in a movie theater  showing the evidence of God  receiving light and images but not the very images they represent. The projector is God. It is the wisdom of this age that is foolishness with God. Did He not give the heavens to the Gentiles for “times and seasons?” That expanse is theirs. But ours is the expanse of the mind which is eternally greater than all creation. 
 As we adopt His word we are modified, not just for the capacity to interact with God but to be coequal with God. Does not scripture say that our bodies are the temples for the Living God?  Doesn’t scripture say “whoever keeps my word, we will come and make our home in you”? So we too can learn of His reality and say like a son  “I and the Father are one”
That is right. It is for the Father to be freely at home to cohabitate with us and in us. “For the Father is spirit and truth and seeketh such”.
 Christ said “He who has seen me has seen the Father. He has interactions with us as co-equals being joint heirs in Christ . So much so in fact that we become a chip off the old block. As the man Jesus portrayed that he was made in the likeness of God taking on the form of man He was co-equal with God “for in him dwells all of the fullness of the God head body”, and “we are complete in him who is the head of all power and principality”.
So we too being in carnal form think it not robbery to be equal with God saying “let this mind be in you” and so we do. This is the gift no man can earn.
 Any father is most honored when his son can do what He does. Did not the Christ say “Greater Works shall you do for I go to the father?” Not that we do greater than God but the man Jesus.  And “the father is glorified when you bear much fruit”. And “the fruit that you bear will remain”. This is the upward calling of God in Christ. 
  The writer of Hebrews spoke of the spirits of just men made perfect saying “you have not come to a mountain that can be burned that as much as even a man or beast touch will die, but you have come to the Heavenly City to the Heavenly Jerusalem to an innumerable company of angels to the spirits of men just made perfect”. And it is the spirits of just men made perfect” who are not only carnal men but experience to perfection the spirit that equals eye to eye contact with the father.
In the beginning Adam had equality with the father in full fellowship. This is what he fell away from and this is what the gospel restores us to “for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” because that is the fall of Man and the departure of man from glory and equality. What man lost was the very nature and glory of God himself. We no longer fall short of the glory if you follow Christ who asked the Father “that where I am they may be also”.
That is why the redemptive value of each man is God himself. That God himself paid for the redemption the restoration and the conclusion of the Gospel all through the man Christ Jesus at the cross, scripture saying “God was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world to Himself and has committed to us this message of reconciliation”. Understanding this we can understand that there is no future payment no future battle no future work of God for he is “seated waiting for his enemies to become his footstool”.
 And we do this through the gospel. This is done as we are refitted and reformatted with the genetic information passed on to us in the gospel. For us to be reconstructed through knowledge to experience the glory of God at the moment of our understanding, at the moment we become transformed. As scripture says “we have been given everything that pertains to life and Godliness according to the knowledge of Him who calls us to glory by virtue”.
    Mentally we are capable of doing this and just as it is an insult for one strong man to see a weak man in false humility begging defiling the very image that he is by becoming subservient to elements and matter. Were we not made to have dominion? Were we not made in the image of God? In the likeness of God?  So the false humility of the religious pendants of the day are an insult to the gift of God. For the gift of God is himself as He displayed in his Son that when we see Christ, his reward is with Him because it is Him. Nothing more nothing less, but what more could you want.
 So those religious leaders who keep you confessing in false humility at the base of the cross, keep you in your fallen nature looking at the fallen things that cannot help you. It is an insult to the Living God and the work of the Gospel for these men to behave in such a manner and for them to expect you to do that. The bludgeoning of the body and the false humility is of no sacrifice that is Honorable to the Living God. Get up like a man. Arise in understanding and awaken from your Adamic slumber.
It was in the beginning that mankind was made for dominion. And as soon as he started working with his hands, he fell from having Dominion because it was in this way that men now serve the creation that was supposed to serve him saying “go forth and have dominion”. Rule and reign. This is the way that creation itself groans because it to is not functioning as designed by letting you serve is it, in our mind and our spirit. That we are of “love power and a sound mind”. For “we have the mind of Christ” and the will of the Father.  We have no instability in us at all for we walk in the light as he is in the light if we walk in darkness at all”. If we walk in darkness, fear and uncertainty we lie and do not do the truth”. And those who walk in the false humility walk in a alse understanding disrespecting the gift of God. It is “to as many as received him to them he gave the power to become his children even to those who believe in his name.” And when we say to those who believe in his name we are not talking about the pronunciation or a spelling for he is the one portrayed in Revelation on the White Horse who no man can pronounce or say who’s garment  is dipped in Blood and whose name is the word of God because his name is so much greater than any pronunciation or any spelling.
    When you can truly understand who the Son is you can use any name or spelling that you want as long as the meaning in the heart is accurate. And those who know God in this way are the sons of God.
   So who was the angel that spoke to John the Revelator where for a moment John thought he was staring Christ in the face. He then bowed down to worship Him and the angel said to him “get up John why are you stooping to worship me?  I am one of your fellow brethren those of the Servants of God who keep the testimony of God. It was John the Revelator who saw a glorified Son of God. And you know what?  There was no Second Coming involvement, there was no cataclysmic event, there was no rapture. And although all creation itself appeared to be silent the very heavens themselves with this principle and with these truths for the glory of God to appear to show us that this too can happen to those who are refitted and transformation by renewing their mind with this thinking to experience this very thing. And when we are called by the gospel to arise and to awaken to this very thing. Did not Paul the Apostle during his transformation saying that he “reaches out to lay hold of why Christ laid off hold of him?” Did he ask us to wait or enjoy the show until another Jesus comes? No! “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” for this is the purpose of the gospel and your sojourn ship here on Earth. For there Comes a time when those who are just she’ll be just those who are miserable will stay miserable. In the time of this era of Salvation will close and what you’ve become is what you will be. What Paul said of the Gospel “till  we all come to the fullness and stature of the son of God, to a perfect man”. To what Adam lost being “good, very good” before the fall. Can you hear this gospel? Can you receive it? And if I may borrow a phrase from Corinthians 15 “each one and their own order.” This is not about a collective event called a second coming that some suppose for “the kingdom of God is at hand” and the power of God has been given. Amen!
   Can you accept this call? Can you hear the voice that calls you from heaven? Do you hear the words now “come up hither”. Can you join John the Revelator who was in the Spirit on the Lords day while he was in his incarnation?  Then can you join the spirits of just men made perfect and see the angels before the Throne serving God.
    If you see a man falling down do you not reach out to help him? Can you see the hand of God? What was Leonardo’s portrait of? Do not murmur and complain like those in the wilderness who were destroyed.  I see the glory of God. Do you? If you look at the earth and see if gloominess  and darkness,  shame on you. Not because I say so but because you deny the gospel. We join the man Christ and say “we speak of what we hear and testify to what we have seen.
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND

Our Perfection and the Priesthood

Download PDF

Perfection. To become a perfect man is generally seen as something attainable only in the next age as though it is not yet but must become later after a 2nd coming but scripture says otherwise.

 

Hebrews 7.11 Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise.

You see perfection has always been the objective of God in our lives. Hebrews 6.1 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection”. So we do. It was the law and the priesthood that believers were to learn by contrast. What they did in the desert over and over, Taking the tent down and packing the articles to set it all back up again, wax on, wax off. God did once. They were to do the laws and services to engrave on their hearts what is forever in the spirit. The new covenant says that “I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; Paul says that we are living epistles of Gods laws written on our hearts known and read by all men. This is the New Covenant. Not tablets of stone but your invisible part. That is what God is interested in.
 God does nothing twice as though the first time He made a mistake. The repetition serves us as reminders. The law was our “guardians and tutors till faith comes” (Gal 4) and not a 2nd coming Jesus. “When that which is perfect comes, that which is in part is done away with”, the repetition stops. We receive the completion.
   We can say “Oh! I get it. Thank you God”. The services were not the thing that pleases God. Like He said in Isaiah 1 “When you come to appear before Me, Who has required this from your hand, To trample My courts?  Bring no more futile sacrifices; I cannot endure iniquity and the sacred meeting.” The learning of the lesson is what pleases Him. To do them and not learn from them disturbs the heavenly Father.
   This is what happens in many religious settings. They know Gods works but they don’t know His ways”. His ways are invisible and His true works are your salvation. For you to be complete. And “we are complete in Him who is the head over all”. If you can see this with your eyes of understanding than it can be said of you too.”That you have come to the light to clearly see that what is required by you is done in God. (John 3.21) It is a gift that God gives. Something He did for us. And you cannot add to make it better or take away from it to make it worse. But you can reject it. You can ignore it like many do. You can even do like the Israelite’s whose corpses died in the wilderness and just refuse to believe what we are saying. And if you are working for it? You may not know the working of faith of the one who said “follow Me that where I am you may be also”.  That is what the Jews did.
And the purpose of all the law, priesthood and prophets? For us to learn by their similes. To go onto perfection by what we learn. We are not perfected some silly man riding on a white horsey coming to rapture you. That was a simile, a parable. “For without a parable spake he not to them. It is for you to see heavenly, invisible, holy things that are accomplished “in Christ” for us to receive the gift of eternal life and all its benefits by what is revealed to us by His Word. By receiving in the heart, or in our soul. Our invisible part that remains after the body returns to dust.
19 for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God. And this better hope is a living hope. It is the power of God unto salvation and salvation completed in us is perfection of the Fathers Word in us who have faith.
12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
   Yes. This all happens in our invisible part. The place of our transformation. To what end? Our perfection. “Till we come to a perfect man. To the fullness and stature of the Son of God”. And we can do this because we wait for the promise to come at a 2nd coming? No! The law made nothing perfect and neither does the 2nd coming, that is judgement. But the bringing of a new hope does. It brings in us perfection. The new priesthood does. The new covenant does. There is no 3rd covenant for the next Jesus for “He is seated waiting for His enemies to become His footstool. And He is waiting for this to happen because His word alive in you and applied by faith conquers. We have this New covenant that is in force when? When there is a death of the testator. And Christ died, the blood was shed for the redemption, the restitution. For the resusitation and resurrection of as many as will follow. The price was paid. “It is finished” He need not come back to fight or work. He came to do the work of salvation and the proof is that is what His name means. He is salvation. He is the savior. He is the performer of salvation. The author and finisher of our faith not our physicality. Our physicality declines but our inward man is renewed. It is not a constant renewal of just getting better. It is always brand new and does not decline or decay. Our inheritance reserved in heaven which is where our heart is
So we speak of just 2 covenants. There is no mid point between covenants. And the New Covenant just restores to the pre-law order anyway for “the law was added till faith comes”. Do you have that? The only thing new about it is new souls. A renewed invisible part. A new heart with the genetic code given to us to be applied by the spirit through the baptism and trial of fire to transform us back to the likeness of the glory of God. This is what we were created for saying “go forth and have dominion”. Man had this in the beginning when God said of His creation “it is good, very good”. And so we are.
There is an account of the priesthood that “brought in perfection” that is generally misunderstood. It was in Gethsemane that the Son and the Father talked saying “Father if there is any other way, let this cup pass”. This passage is abused to create false humility and keeps people stuck in their sins at the base of the cross. If you remember the Israelite’s were suppose to eat the Passover in haste, why? God did not send His Son for you to wallow in endless confessions over personal failures as though the cross is ineffective to save and transform you. That would be no better than the law in repetitions. God does things once and the Son does the works of the Father. In this way the two are one. In this way we are too.
   Christ is our Passover we are to eat in haste. And we are called to “o on to perfection not laying the dead works of repentance and baptisms” and such. The conversation the Father and Son had that night was not about sins as a focus, but the taking away the sin stained conscience for you to move on to perfection in the here and now. When Christ said “Father if there is any other way?” The Father could have easily replied “Yes! Why don’t you do half the job now and finish it at a 2nd coming” but He didn’t. No where is it mentioned in scripture that there is a 2nd coming. It is non-scriptural. The phrase “2nd coming does not exist in scripture.
The”bringing in of a better hope by which we draw close to God” to bring us to perfection has happened and can be activated by faith.
   What the 2nd coming seekers look for will never be for they want a visual. But we are receiving a Kingdom that cannot be shaken”. (Heb 12.28) One that “cometh not with observation” meaning visible to the canal eyes.
Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man.” 
 
And may I add this is in the eternal. It is not a structure like we see but invisible components of the eternal almighty. He beacons us “come up hither”
 
Here is your non visual. What are you waiting for? A visual? Do you despise the precious blood of the lamb of God. His Son who offered himself with out spot or blemish acceptable to the Father. 
 
Allow “the blood of Christ through the eternal spirit to wash your conscience from dead works to serve the living God” From Hebrews 10.2 For the worshipers, once (purged) purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins”. So we don’t. And like it says in 1st John “he who sins has neither seen Him or known Him. Do you know Him like this?
 And this is to be like Him. To receive this gift.  He is the gift. “He comes and His reward is with Him”. It is Him. He gave Himself. He was broken down in word form from the beginning. All the law and the prophets, feasts and sacrifices were Him. He is the “Lo I have come in the volume of the book. It is written of Me”. This is Gods genetic code was replicated in this way for us to put Him on one word at a time, one revelation at a time for HIs coming are many. And He comes as a theif because you cannot see Him. But He comes continually or us to become godly, god-like, like Him. Not piously or religiously but God-Like for that is what Godly means. The Word became flesh for us to see that we can become godly while we are in the flesh. Jesus was. And “as He is so are we in the world”. This is perfection and this is the gift. For He comes and His reward is with Him” if you receive Him. But you must receive Him as He is in truth, as He is eternally “the same yesterday, today and forever. Not in human form which He used temporarily to show us the way.
 
So “follow those who through faith and patience inherit the promises”? The 2nd coming message says the fulfillment of the promises is when Jesus comes back to finish the work. He said ‘it is finished”. But you must believe it. If you are waiting for god like ness you are like the slothful steward who says; my lord delays His coming”. Slothful because that is a lazy posture. If we press on to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of us, we strive for the prize. We compete according to the rules. The rules of faith. That without faith it is impossible to please God. But if We seek Him in the spirit of our mind, “He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him”. And “eternal life for those who in patient continence in doing good seek for glory honor and immortality”. So this immortality we seek and He rewards us. And of this immortality? It is not mortally understood because it is not visible. That is why the Lord said “Seeing with their eyes they see not, and hearing with their ears they hear not. For one must see and hear with the heart to understand the things of God. So we do. 
We will discuss further what the perfect man does. Like Jesus said. “I do the works of my Father. So we do. We do the works of salvation.
“It is good that a student become like his teacher” So we do. We become lie Him. This is a perfect man.
 
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND AND ACTIVE EVEN TODAY.

Paul testified the resurrection of faith

Download PDF
Paul was set out to testify of the Gospel of the Resurrection. And if it was for a future Resurrection, that would be no new testimony at all because even the Pharisees believed there was a resurrection, a future one. The Sadducee’s and Pharisees argued about this. But the testimony from Paul was to come out of that Pharisaic testimony of a future resurrection of time and matter and be transformed from that one into the one that “cometh not with observation”.
  When Paul was speaking to the Roman ruler Agrippa being a believer. Paul said “why do you think it’s incredible that God raises the dead” because it was not incredible that God raises the dead, for the Resurrection was a believe they already had. What was incredible is that God raises the dead by the operation of faith. That a resurrection of the end times was a distraction. Having come out of that system he was to testify to a different resurrection. The Lord said to Saul/Paul at his conversion that he was “you will testify of what you have seen and the things I will yet reveal to you”.
   But it is the resurrection of faith we all confess at baptism that Paul was assigned to differentiate between the Pharisaic resurrection of a future last time event when the Lord said of these people “they will say look here and look there, but do not follow them”. It is  our profession and confession of faith that we are buried with Christ and then resurrected with him to walk in newness of life while we are in our human condition. “You shall be judged by every word that you speak”. Especially your public confessions, your baptism.
Heb 2 Therefor we must pay closer attention to what we have heard lest we slip, for if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received its just reward, what makes us think we shall escape judgement if we refuse such a great salvation. And it is a great salvation. Our sojournment is our departure.
   So it is the second coming seeker false prophets of today who have no shame in believing the same Pharisaical testimony that Paul was told by Christ to depart from, that Paul was to transform from. These second coming speakers who confess at baptism to the resurrection with the risen Lord, then hypocritical turn and talk about another resurrection of another raising of another savior with another saving and make themselves as much and enemy of Christ as Paul was as a Pharisee when the Lord said “why are you kicking against the goads? In this way Saul/Paul was the enemy. At his conversion He saw Christ as a great light brighter than any humanly seen light for Paul saw Him as He is. To accept Christ in His original form and not as a man for Paul did not describe the pierced side or the nail holes in the hands. A man was Christs temporary form that He transitioned from to show us the way.
 It was Paul who learned by revelations, meaning a multiple appearings of Christ for Paul to grow by degree to say “I have been crucified with Christ yet I live but not I its Christ that lives in me. And the life that I now live I live by faith in the Son of God who gave himself for me. If righteousness or the resurrection, comes any other way, the cross is unnecessary. Was He not raised? Then we are raised with Him if we are “in Christ “. If it comes any other way, then Christ died in vain. If Christ only confirmed a future resurrection He accomplished no new thing and we are still in our sins wallowing in our old nature.
So like we said, it was the religious order of that day that believed in a future resurrection that Paul came out of. They believe in the resurrection but a future one and that is what he was in error with and antagonized beleivers for. It was Christ who proved he was the resurrection and the new life with the raising of Lazarus before Christ showed His resurrection at the cross. He did not become the Resurrection, He was the ressurection.
Paul prayed “that the eyes of our understanding would be opened that we would know the exceeding greatness of his power that is in US that he displayed when God raised the man Jesus from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand. And that is what we ask you to do. Didn’t Paul say that of us in Ephesians 2? That we are seated in the heavenlies in Christ”? That “we would know the exceeding great power that is in us that he displayed when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him far above all power and principality in this age and the coming age”. And that is the point. In the coming age is the one that is even coming as we speak for it cometh not with (carnal) observation, being the eternal that overlaps us now. This includes “today if you can hear His voice”and every day, to accomplish the task for you to be seated in him. For this reason Paul said that we are seated with him in Heavenly places far above all powers and principalities being rulers over all things.
   This is the testimony that he had to conclude and to agree with to be qualified an apostle as one who saw the Lord. And He did, but not seeing the nail holes or the pierce in His side Paul saw the great light from heaven. And I pray that you do too. And we can see Christ as He is with the eyes of our understanding as the light brighter than humanly possible.
 We do this to testify of the Resurrection of faith too. Can you believe this? Well this is what we are asked to do. Believe something we cannot (carnally) see, but we can experience by faith. For “without faith it is impossible to please God. You must first believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of those who” wait for a 2nd coming?  No! We diligently seek him now and what he rewards you with are things from where he is. Eternal things, invisible things. If you cannot get past pleasing him by faith, if you cannot get past the obstacles that your eyes see and your ears hear, to believe the truth, you cannot have this. But he is a rewarder of those that can believe this by faith. And you are asked to follow those who through faith and patience inherit the promises” and so we do. Not promises of a dead piece of paper but of those who receive the thing that is said “if you are able to receive it” are you? “He comes and His reward is with Him” Why? Because He is the reward. Him and nothing else because everything belongs to Him.
So like Paul we speak of what we hear and testify to what we have seen, and what Paul heard and saw was a great light from heaven with the voice of the Lord. And the operative here is “being from heaven”. Scripture saying the light that shines seven times brighter than that of the Sun. Paul was speaking of another dimension. One that transcends the ability of the carnal senses of sight sound and smell. This is why later Paul prayed that the eyes of our understanding would be opened.  Yes! The eyes and ears of our understanding is our invisible part that interacts with the “eternal, immortal, invisible God. In this way the Kingdom of God is at hand. Why seek ye another?
The Kingdom of God is at hand.

The Lie to Adam and Eve

In the beginning God said “Let us make man in our image and our likeness”. And God did. But the man was distracted by another. Man was tempted by the fruit of another tree of one who said “For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God”. It was Satan who offered godliness, meaning god-like-ness, in a different way.

You see it was not a lie “that you would become as Gods” because God had already said “let Us make man in our likeness” and fulfilled when God sent man out of Eden. It was after eating the forbidden fruit that God said  “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— 23 therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. The lie and deception was not that they would become as Gods but that to “become as Gods” was offered through another venue. Another source.
And this is what the 2nd coming message does. It denies godliness through the knowledge of God, to become partakers of the divine nature by faith in the Christ of the cross in the here and now and ascribes the gift of godliness to another. Instead of the gift by faith they want it as fact in the material realm. The gift to become Gods children and being transfigured by reformatting their minds through the gospel is circumvented to become godly at a 2nd coming rapture or a future resurrection. To be transfigured by that event, that is the lie. They ascribe saving power and transforming power later and miss out.
That which was from the beginning” as John the apostle referred to. You see the garden patterned for us our choices when we read scripture. And the forbidden fruit is godliness from another venue. A different offering for godliness.
 It is clear to see that the lie from the beginning is still active. And lucky for us we can choose to eat of the tree of life (Revelation 3) by eating of the tree of the cross for “cursed is everyone who hangs from a tree? And Christ did just that for us. The tree of life is to eat of that and become godly in that way and not another. Both of these messages use scripture. Which one is palatable to you? Are you the elect? Or are you deceived?  “For this reason God shall send forth a strong dillusion to believe a lie, to those who had pleasure in unrighteousness”. And it is a righteous thing that the Word of God who became flesh mapped out the way of godliness through the gospel,,, or use scripture to be yet fulfilled in another gospel of anither Jesus to come on the scene because the first Christ was too weak.
But we “are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation for all who believe”. This is those who have faith to receive it and need not an encore presentation for another saving.
The Kingdom of God is at hand, active and present in the here and now.

THE FATHER AND SON ARE SEATED WAITING FOR THEIR ENEMIES TO BE SUBDUED

Download PDF

 

From Hebrews 10.12; Christ, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, 13 from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. 14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.

Hebrews 1 discusses how that Christ is now seated waiting till His enemies are made His foot stool. So here is the glorious truth about the gospel “once and for all delivered to the saints”. It is as the gospel is received in us and appropriated by faith that it subdues our enemies. We see and believe and appropriate the word of God as scripture says “for who shall ascend into heaven to bring Him down? Or who shall descend to the depths to bring Him up that we may do it? (Or how long must we wait for a 2nd coming? ) But no, the word is very near to you that you may hear it and do it. It is even in your heart.That if you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth…then you shall be saved. It is in this way that the words of God are actualized, initiated, and instituted by the working of faith “for the just shalllive by faith”. And it is in this way that Christ is seated with the Father waiting for us to join Him there with Him saying “follow methat where I am you may be also”. And how do we get there? By word. We appropriate His word.
You see the gospel message is a blue print for our transformation and transfiguration and not a survival guide for you to wait for a second coming.
There is no future saving or deliverance but the deliverance “once and for all delivered to the saints”. There is no future battle for the Father or Son because scripture says they “are seated waiting for His enemies to become His footstool“.
   The battle is in us now as we appropriate Gods promises by believing and confessing them into existence against the obstacles in our lives. This becomes our work of faith for God did not leave us here orphans or helpless, having to be saved from your fallen state or save you from a fallen world. We have been given the keys to the kingdom and the keys are His Word, the Son who was with the Father and became flesh for this “greater salvation”.
Hebrews 4.12 For the word of God is living and powerful (able to do this), and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
     So it is in this way that we put off the sin of the flesh and put on the new man who is the same image as Him who made us. Word.

     And this is the principle of faith, being the Word of God which is living and powerful in us, that we receive in our heart, believe it in our mind and speak it with our mouth, when the facts are contrary, when what we see doesn’t jive with what the spirit is saying and we choose to believe the word in spite of the physical proof screaming at us and tell us contrary to the spirit. “Hath God really said?” For those who follow God in this way? They are the children of God. (Romans 8)

You see there is no 2nd coming battle to wage for humanity as some suppose. Christ is seated waiting for His enemies to be subdued. Scripture makes no reference to a 2nd coming battle in a physical way. And scripture is clear that sin has been dealt with, that “the ruler of this world is judged” “satan has been cast down, Christ has been given authority over all flesh and “all things have been put under foot. The only enemy now is the sin of unbelief. (John 16.8)
So when scripture says “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could think or ask according to the power that works in us… to Him be the Glory in this age and every age amen.., It is that the Father is glorified in us by us re-iterating His words and confessed by our mouth that become our new reality. If you are fighting against Satan sin and death other than by scripture, meaning, the word of God, then you are fighting in vain. You see the battle field is in our mind saying “For the weapons of our warfare are mighty through God for pulling down strongholds and everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”. It was God who gave us the keys to the kingdom, being His words displayed on the pages of His book, to overcome the obstacles of our day saying “in the day of salvation I have heard and I have helped.Today is the day of salvation”. These are Gods words! Yes! And amen!
    This is how you overcome the obstacles you have. As much as we want to see a light from heaven and one ride in on the clouds to reach out to us and save us. The saving is done “in Christ “. Christ is “seated waiting for His enemies to become His footstool” subdued through you. In this way you show yourself a child of God by your words. His word active in you. This is the saving of the gospel by word and need not a second coming saving. Christ said “it is finished” and is seated victorious  in all authority, then gifting it to us who believe for us to become “the full measure and stature of Christ”. A duplocate of Christ to a perfect son “till we come to the full stature and likeness of Christ”.
This is for those of us who have returned to the Father, and what Paul was begging you to hear saying “16 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. ( now and not at a 2nd coming)18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

This then is salvation and the eternal gospel “once and for all delivered to us” to take us into the presence of the Almighty in the here and now.

Jacobs Ladder 4 The Purpose of Paul

The purpose of Paul

Paul was born in “due time”. To be an apostle he had to have seen our Lord. And he did. The 11 disciples thought Mathias was to replace Judas as “one who witnessed the resurrection”.  And he did. Mathias knew Christ in His in carnation, but it was Paul who saw Christ in His true self. Having seen a great light from Heaven he said “who are you Lord”. Paul later described that incident as having seen the Lord. Paul saw the “lo I am with you always” and not the one who has to come again.
     Paul was qualified but not like the 11. Paul did not witness the incarnation but as he said “the gospel I preach to you did not come by man (an incarnation) I did not receive it by man, nor was I taught it by man but by revelation of Christ”.  As Paul was on the road to Damascus he saw a great light that shone  brighter than the carnally visible sun and he said “Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecute. 16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.
This is proof of who Christ is.  He is not a man. And this shows us that the revelation of Christ has not just 1st and 2nd comings but is progressive in nature, that scripture saying of the revelation “ both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.” Paul was sanctioned to testify of the progressive revelations of Christ. Paul started preaching and became better and more clear by “the things which I will yet reveal to you.”
   This then is the proof that Paul witnessed the resurrection not as an event but a persona invisible to the naked eye. And it also shows that the revelation is progressive by multiple revelations not just 1st and 2nd comings. As Christ said of Himself “I am the resurrection”. Paul saw a resurrected, glorified Christ.  The very thing that the 2nd coming seekers look for in a carnal way. But that He is not. Paul meandered away from seeing Christ as a man needing to rule earth in a human form later saying “for it is God who commanded light to shine out of darkness who has shown in our hearts to bring to light the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” being Gods expressions snd behaviors . And he saw it first like that on the road to Damascus and circumvented the need for a 2nd coming to do so.
   It was because of this that Paul began his journey and transformation away from the Satanic antichrist way of thinking like the Jewish leaders who said “when does the Kingdom of God come?” The answer?  “It cometh not with (carnal) observation”. Luke 17.
This is why we need to see Paul’s letters as progressive and not all as having equal authority.  This is “rightly dividing the word of truth”.  We learn to see in the word who temporarily put on humanity,  the “lo I am with you always,  even to the end if the age”. The one who said “I will never leave you or forsake you”.  And if we can learn to see this we need not be preoccupied with another coming and another Kingdom because the  kingdom is now at hand.
     When the disciples were told “there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of God coming in power”? And this is what Paul experienced. A timeless event of a being outside of time. Some are delighting to see an event in time and matter.  Time and matter is unfit to fully display the One who is outside of time. The One who said “they shall not enter My rest. This one calls us outside of human boundaries like Paul said “You observe days months seasons and years.  I’m afraid for you that I’ve labored in vain “?
     Yes those who see the revelation of Christ as a physical event are in a scary mindset. It is not a 1st and 2nd coming but progressive revelations “until you come to a full measure and stature of Christ” through the gospel. The gospel defines the Full revelation through a series of smaller revelations for transformation, for transfiguration.  Your transfiguration.
     To be “the full measure and stature of Christ” is accomplished by faith which is our invisible embelical cord to the invisible God. Paul said ” I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation for all who believe. And salvation is the full package from sanctification  to justification atoned and glorified saint of which you are called to be.
   It is that our new bodies are as invisible and ubiquitous as His. And his exactness is what is gifted to us by the cross. This is what John saw from the book of Revelation when he saw one of us and tried to bow down to worship him. That  glory said “see that you do not do that because I too am one who keeps the testimony of God.  Worship Him”. This one has a glorified body before a 2nd coming, which the 2nd coming mindset denies for they wait for another man Jesus.
   So it is by the gospel the work of God has it’s conclusion and not for those who wait for another conclusion for the saving called the 2nd coming.
     Paul is one of the 12 and counted as foundation stones of the Kingdom of God of which all who can receive the conclusion of their teachings, that  is all who stand on their finished works are counted as “living stones” built on the foundation and more clearly seen outside their parrabolic form that was visual on earth to the carnal senses. But we are members of the house hold of God now.
     So if we get stuck in our thinking and transfiguration at mid way points in Paul’s transformation and transfiguration, we stop short of the full message that he was developing through his epistles, Meaning if we see all scripture as equally relevant, we stop short of the full gospel message.
    People who see all scripture equal, use lessor verses to cancel greater verses that are designed by God to conclude the gospel of God unto salvation and the work of God to be accomplished in our own personal walk of faith as we reach for why Christ laid hold of us”. And I assure you that we are apprehended by the word of God for something much greater than to wait for a person at a 2nd coming for a purpose to be revealed now. That is Christ in you. The hope of Glory. The Glory working in us now that creation groans to see. That creation desires to honor. That God desires to see for “it is the Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” and “I give you the keys to the Kingdom” being the Word of the gospel. And you can have it while those who resist God walk about you.
     This is why 1 John says of us “The world does not know us because it did not know Him”.  This is us “as He is” is our invisible part that co-rules and reigns. Those of us who like Christ who “being in the form of God thought it not robbery to be equal to God”? Yes! We sit with Him in the heavenlies. We sit beside Him. The price of the blood is a sufficient price for this gift and it insults God for you to refuse the gift. The second coming seekers reject this gift and ascribe it to another Jesus. That is another gospel. And that is the gospel Paul started with. But I assure you he didn’t stop there.
    So stand on the finished works of Christ and the foundation of the kingdom and accept that “ye are saints and fellow citezines of the house hold of God” now. The other kingdom coming is the competition that is to be rejected.
The Kingdom of God is at hand! Operative and active today

Our Transfiguration

Tried, trued and transfigured
When Christ was with his disciples he told them assuredly I say to you there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. It is here that Christ was saying that some of them would see him in his kingdom in great glory and power. And again but I tell you truly there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God. And it came to pass that Jesus took Peter James and John up to a high mountain and prayed and as He prayed the appearance of his face was altered and He became glistening white. So it was here that Christ showed himself as he truly is. He explained that they would see the Son of Man coming in great power and glory, meaning that while he was in his human body they would see him transfigured, that they would taste death and see something of the afterlife. And it was here that Christ showed his transfomation while He was incarnate for us to have hope of being transfigured in our incarnation. He showed them something all Second Coming seekers desire to see. What the Second Coming seekers desire to see is something not bound by time or those who were standing there that would see it before they would die would not see it because they too would have to wait for another coming of another Jesus and circumvent the words Christ just spoke. And this is what the Second Coming seekers do they circumvent the gospel. They neutralize the gospel. But it can be said of us as it was for them that there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see Christ transfigured.
   So if we can understand the Transfiguration as not being a spectacular carnal event called a second coming after the tribulation, that is if you can receive these words?  Then it is true for you, that you to not only can see the Transfiguration but that you can experience it for this is what we are asked to do. BE YE TRANSFIGURED! Romans 12
You see after the departure of Judas in his betrayal there was left an empty seat. And the 11 disciples drew straws and chose Mathias. But Mathias was short lived for along came the 12th born out of due time or better rendered from the Greek born in proper time and in his due order.
For one of the qualifications to be considered an apostle is to have seen the Lord. So along came another name Paul, the wicked man doing wicked works against the called. And this man’s account was he had seen a great light from heaven and asked him who are you lord why are you kicking against the goads? It was here that Paul saw the Lord. You see he had to see the Lord to be qualified as an apostle, and because he saw Christ as he truly is, not incarnate but as he truly is invisible. And this is the testimony of every true apostle.
   You see Paul was among the Jews who were expecting a coming king and a Co ming Kingdom like the 2nd coming seekers. Of which Christ represented and they rejected. But Paul experienced another King and another Kingdom, a non visual one. He saw him who is the same yesterday today and forever.
So the 11 saw Christ as a man and some saw him glorified king like the Second Coming concept even back in their day. Paul’s message was that the gospel I preach to you did not come by man nor was I taught by man but by revelation of Jesus Christ. And because he did not see the man Jesus but he saw Christ as he truly is? This is how he was qualified to be an apostle. Because he had seen the Lord but not the man Jesus
   So there are some things we need to understand about the Transfiguration for if we see Christ as a man, that is what we try to become like him but if we see him as he truly is? As he is eternal immortal invisible the only wise God? Then we can be transformed into that.
   The term Transfiguration only appears a few times in Scripture. Two of these times we already referenced in the man Jesus. There are two more times, one time in Romans 12. It says be ye transformed by the renewing of your min” and is rendered properly from the Greek be transfigured. And if we understand this correctly? We do not look for a carnal transformation a carnal or human Transfiguration. You see because we are instructed to be transfigured in our mind, this is the place of the Transfiguration and reasoning of our eternal parts being are circumcised heart and our soul. And from 2nd Corinthians 3:18 therefore we are being transformed or transfigured into his self same image from glory to glory as by the Spirit of the Lord. It is in this way that we become godly. We become godlike. And it is in this way that we become holy, that we become saints. This is our invisible part.
   It is in this way, by the renewing of the mind, that we put on Christ. It is in the mind, the interaction of the heart and the soul, are invisible parts, that we are clothed with what we see in Christ, when we behold him in glory. Like it says in Corinthians “transfigured  from glory to the glory as by the Spirit”. And the miraculous thing about this is that there is no human transformation visible. It is the mind. And if we cannot see him transfigured like those in the days of the man Jesus, if we cannot see him transfigured like Paul did as seeing him who is invisible, if we see Jesus as having to come back in power and glory before we can accept his transfiguration, then we cannot be transfigured either.  We subject all Scripture has having a fulfillment later to be glorified later and pass up a chance of our transfiguration now. If we think the transfiguration is a carnal thing like a rapture, our soul admits it cannot see him who is invisible. And you cannot be transformed. You cannot be transfigured. You reject the testimony that God gave of His son. That His son is a chip off the old block, identical to the Father. But you see a man and you commit the same blunder as the Jews.
    As it is said although they knew God they glorified him not as God but changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the corruptible man. So the Second Coming seekers do
They deny Christ and because they expect another incarnate Christ?  They become enemies of the gospel. And they are enemies because they reject the voice of him who calls us from heaven to heaven. This is the place of our calling and the reason why God sent His Son into the world? Was to show to us as we are in our humanity that the Incarnation and the Transfiguration can coexist. That “we have this treasure in earthen vessels” a disposable thing “that the glory and the excellence would be a god and not of ourselves”.
   So let us be about our Transfiguration. Let us renew our minds. Let’s let our minds be reformatted and fitted with the gospel. As Paul said “I am not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of God unto salvation”. And if this is true as we describe, then there is no need for a second coming transformation. If there is a Second Coming transformation, or a Second Coming Transfiguration, same word in the Greek, then the gospel is weak and you do need another access point to the kingdom. But if you can reject that false gospel and reformat your brain with these truths? Then you too can have the thing that is said. It can be said of you too that “there are some standing here today who shall see the Son of Man coming in great glory and power before you die. This is the gospel Paul spoke of saying “the gospel I preach to you did not come by man but by revelation”. A new understanding. Paul experienced the revelation of Jesus Christ and he did not have to go through the seven year tribulation and a rapture to see another Jesus for this to happen.
   So we encourage you to be refitted and reformatted with these truths to receive the gift of God and eternal life. BE YE TRANSFIGURED! For “today is the day of salvation” and today “the Kingdom of God is at hand” if you can receive it.

MISSION OF JOHN THE BAPTIST

MISSION OF JOHN THE BAPTIST

It was John the Baptist who said of Christ “here comes the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”. It was Christ who is the propitiation for the sins of the whole world. (1 John 2.1) It is in Christ that all things are made new and need not another. Christ at the cross said “It is finished!” as if to say “paid in full!”
    Any other gospel message that comes short of taking away the sins of the world is incomplete. Any other message that teaches of a future saving or a future victory over sin or a future victory over Satan or a future victory in any way is a false gospel, a truncated gospel. It rejects the saving of the cross. But “we speak of what we’ve heard and testify to the things that we have seen” that “God has sent His Son as savior of the world.
     John was a man sent forth by God. It was said of John the Baptist that of all the prophets he was the greatest. And he was the greatest, because he spoke plainly something that all the other prophets just alluded to saying “the Kingdom of God is at hand”. But he later asked “are you the coming one or do I seek another”.  You see it was John first who said that “the kingdom of God is at hand” that later lost faith saying ” are you the coming one?”  John wanted a visual. He wanted physical proof that “the Kingdom of God is at hand” as many do today.  And it is, but it is not some silly city on earth called Jerusalem. That was turned “till not one stone was left upon another”. So you shouldn’t be confused. Jerusalem was sown corruptible visibly and raised incorruptible in the spirit portrayed at pentecost.
    This is why “of those born among women there is none greater than John the Baptist?” The Kingdom is of a different construct then time and matter. That is why “he who is least in the Kingdom is greater than he”? Yes. Greater than John and for that matter even the apostles for they are the foundation we stand on. (Rev 21 and Eph 3)
     You see no other prophet said it so plainly and so clearly. That the kingdom of God is something to be grasped. “At Hand”. To assimilate it and activate it now through the knowledge of the living God made manifest in the face of Christ. For “All the law and the prophets were until John the baptist. STOP. From that time the Kingdom the Kingdom is preached and all are pressing in”? Yes! The revelation through John takes us as far as any man can because “all the law and the prophets were parables”. Yes they were pictures and play things to mimic and imitate the invisible ever ready, ubiquitous heavenly Kingdom at hand even as we speak now. The law and the prophets were visible things to learn of the invisible. Parables to teach by carnal visuals of things we need to understand in the spirit of our mind of the “Kingdom prepared from the foundation of the world”? A pre-incarnate reality we call the spirit.
   And “when that which is perfect has come”? This is the regenerate re-formatted mind of faith that co-rules and reigns with the Father even now. Rev 3 “He who overcomes shall rule with a rod of iron” And this happens how? 1 John 5 how is it that we overcome the world? By faith. This is the overcoming of scripture and need not another earthly Jesus or another city on earth but the one “Come down from God out of Heaven” (Rev 21). And who is it that it is said of? “He who overcomes shall be a pillar in the house of God”. Those who receive this in this age we live.
    The churches were called to overcome as we’re the Jews but they got stuck in the visuals, like today. That it is not fact but faith. That is not of the eternal spirit but time and matter and every clock has a start and a stop. Every mountain erodes, every flower withers and every city has a deadline and an expiration date, but not the things of God.That is what eternal means and what we inherit. That which was before God ever said “Let there be light!” This is what we get. This is why John the apostle said “if that which is from the beginning abides in you, you abide in the truth”. A later coming Christ is an illusion of “him who is not yet” as John asked “are you the coming one “?  A christ in progress will never will be. The 1st coming Christ who was rejected is rejected again today as they look for a 2nd coming savior to save from the world. And here is where John starts as we just said “here comes the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world”? And He did. Can you believe this? Can you receive this? Then you are of this kind scripture saying “that which is born of the flesh is.
    No city or king on earth ever are the fulfillment of Gods word like Jesus said “My Kingdom is not of this world”? Meaning of time and matter.
   Learn what this means ” Where there are prophecies they will fail, where ther are visions they will cease, but when that which is perfect has come, that which is in part is done away with”. This is what this we are talking about.
   When Moses was instructed to “make things according to the pattern you saw on the mount” he was to make visible the invisible in a way for them to assimulate the Kingdom of God “from where “if even a man or a beast touches they will die”. This is the purpose of  all the law and every true prophet. To make visible the invisible things of God and His invisible Kingdom, A place where flesh and blood can’t go but only to the re-spirited mind of faith as touching the invisible. And we do this with the tool of faith. Our invisible embelical cord to the invisible God and Savior. He was made flesh and dwelled among us only temporarily to return to His original self of being “the same yesterday, today and forever”? Yes! Invisible and ubiquitous.
  And this is the whole purpose of the gospel. That those who are born of the spirit, being those who receive the invisible, which is more concrete than any substance of time and matter. That is “those born of the spirit who see and enter the kingdom in heaven now. They need not a 2nd coming Jesus. John 3.that which is born of the flesh is flesh, that which is born of the spirit is spirit? He is not coming back in a carnal form. “For we knew Christ once according to the flesh but henceforth know we Him that way no more”.
  So we who are born from above are greater than John the baptist and any carnal prophet or righteous man. Even us who are “least in the Kingdom of God at hand”.
   Christianity today is one of the great religions of the world? Yes! And that is all it is. Just another religion of man having lost their inheritance as they wait for it to come again. Having been robbed of its eternal purpose of “the kingdom of God at hand”. It ascribes the kingdom to another Jesus with another coming and forfeit their inheritance as did the Jews of old. They are lost in the visuals and cannot cross over. Like the 12 tribes who crossed the Red Sea to die in the wilderness, so too will these do, and why? Because that is as far as any man can take you. That way of thinking must be cut off hence the beheading of John the Baptist. You need a renewed mind. John the baptist was also a parable. And it is because of this there is no saving power without “the kingdom of God at hand”. Your in need of another Jesus and another Kingdom. The first one was rejected by you if you don’t except the saving of the cross.
   Think about it. Don’t most of other religions and cults expect a savior? A saving one?  To save them and help them from their falleness or wicked world? Then they expect a Kingdom of God in form of a man in a city made with mans devising located on earth some where with a zip code? But God in the beginning stepped out of His Kingdom and said “let there be” and there was something that appeared? He was before all that. So we speak and we testify that “God has sent His Son Savior of the world”. He returned it to its original purpose of being good,  very good.  
     If this testimony is not true? Then God must send somebody to save again. Then yes there will be a second coming savior and the cross has no value but to keep you in a 2000+ year old prison of empty promises by leaving you here waiting to be saved and the cross is a hoax. Is Gods “Kingdom at hand”or not? Did He take it away to have to do another work? Where do you put your faith.  In a future savior who left you here to decay? Or the savior of the cross who made clear to us the resurrection? 
    The 2nd coming message is why the saving of the Christ of the cross is road blocked and detoured like in the days of John the baptist, by a message “with all lying signs and wonders if possible to deceive the elect”. These people seek a second coming saving and it is because of this that the true gospel message has been obscurred.
  John 3.17 God sent His Son into the world not to condemn the world (like a 7 year tribulation) but that through him the world would be saved.  And He did. That was the saving. The price was His life for yours. He paid for your death that you may live for “by His stripes we are healed ” and “on Him was laid the iniquity of us all”. In this way He is “the propitiation for the whole world “.
So here is the demise of John the baptist. He was beheaded. Yes he was a parrable too. As scripture states He only spoke in parables and without a parable spoke He not to “. John pictured that the only place man can take you to is the end of themselves, their time. “a student may become like their teacher but not greater” This is the need of another. To become like the teacher we have in Christ saying “you need not that any one teach you, but the anointing you’ve received teaches you all things?”  The old mindset stuck in parables thinking they are real has to be cut off and replaced with “that which is perfect” which is perfect in understanding. That “God has given us everything that pertains to life and God-like-ness by knowledge”. (2 Peter 1)
     As Christ’s struggle was at Golgotha, the skull, so ours is in our  mind. This is why it is said of John “There is no one born among women greater than he, but he who is least in the kingdom is greater than John, so we are. John failed as the greatest prophet. He failed to get you there and shown us that when he sent to Jesus saying “are you the coming one? This is why Jesus said “I do not receive my testimony from man? And John’s truncated message was included, “for He knew -what was in man”. The is the need to be born again, of a different make up than time and matter with a new set of eyes and ears.
     So “To as many as received Him? to them He gave power to become His children, even those who believed in His name”? Yes! No 2nd coming involvement necessary. We who receive Him as He is. We “are a kind of first fruits of His creation” now and need not another Jesus for this to be true. 
       They were all seeking a kingdom and Jesus sent word back “tell John the things you see” So we do. Christ has come savior of the world and provided for us the way. Himself saying “I am the way the truth and the light. This is the way. Him.
     Christ is the new and living. The old didn’t work. Remember “Father if there be any other way? Never the less thy will be done”. And He did. And He said “It is finished”. This is about as close to thomas you will ever get. “Stick your fingers in this.  This is “That which we have heard, which we have seen and handled concerning the word of life”. And this is the “Word that became flesh and dwelt among us”? Yes! WORD. He only put on carnality temporarily and returned to His true composition. He returned to the Father and calls us to Himself, the new and living way that expired the law and the prophets. They were put out of business by Jesus saying “Father that where I am they may be also” Him who said “I go away to the Father and you see me no more”? And Paul”s revelation “We once knew Christ of the flesh, henceforth we know Him that way no more”. Not ever again. The Word was in the beginning? The word was God? The Word was with God? The word Became flesh (not His natural composition) and dwelt among us” to return home like the parable of John 13.. So “to as many as received Him He gave power to become His children” is not those who received the man Jesus but the word. Which one is your Jesus? The man? Or the Word?
Look and behold it is Me and not another. Did I not say “Lo I am with you through the ages”? That “I will never leave you or forsake you? I am the same “Yesterday, today and forever”? Yes it is Me. It is I who “stands at the door and knocks”. Behold Me. I am the coming one coming through Word. I am Word in My natural composition and this is how I come. Not once like a 2nd coming but over and over and over as many times as you need until you receive Me.. Your “lord delays not His coming”. For the Lord who does not tarry comes to you now in Word form. This is the bread of life that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world now, not later. Receive me this way and not a silly wafer. Or worse another coming man for another coming kingdom on earth and not of Heaven. The place I was before the word came out “let there be…”John sent forth word “Are you the coming one?” The “another coming”mindset was John’s beheading showing the “putting off the body of sin of the flesh” is to be renewed in thinking. This is your rapture and you being “translated into the kingdom”.
When John said  “The Kingdom of God is at hand”. That is as far as man goes. He can deliver the Word. The rest is up to you. “To as many as believed, to them He gave power to become His children”. Did you believe that? Did you receive that? Not the later coming Jesus but Me? Word?  Whom do you seek?

If any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him

Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. Says the Lord. Hebrews 10.38

If we shrink back into our own plans, our own coverings, He has no pleasure. But we walk in the light. Revelation comes when we are in His light. To walk in the light is to walk in continuous revelation. Not like a 1st and 2nd coming but continuous.  His revelation is His light and not the light of 24 hour increments. This is what it means when scripture says “in That day” and “the day of the Lord” is to walk in this revelation. To allow the spirit to guide you for “as many as are led by the spirit of God? These are sons of God”
  We walk in His light, His revelation. This is how we are either “in Adam” “in that day you will die” or “In Christ” to eat of him for “in that day you will live” for he who beleives in Me has passed from death to life”. And the unfortunate thing about this is that if your mind is blinded by the god of this age, and expect a carnal display, unlike Paul who was blinded by a light brighter than the sun. That is because he saw the Son in His true form, being light unfettered and unhindered eternal substance that cannot be homogenized into a place of time and matter in His true form which is why He became flesh temporarily to show us the way. Can you see this? Well if you said yes, you didn’t see Him with carnal eyes. But you saw Him with your “eyes of understanding”,  the place of your transformation saying “Be ye transformed in the spirit of your mind “. This is what happened to Paul with the Lord saying  “things you have seen and things I will yet reveal to you.  Paul had to face the continued light for this and not a 2nd coming.  but one who presents a Christ to come of this age to supercede the saving of the word who became flesh, then you must interpret scripture in time and matter bound my “months days seasons and years”.  But the light of God permeates all these and precedes them.
   We are in the day that all other days model. We are in the eternal day being constant revelation. If we walk in darkness and uncertainty then maybe we have left the path of the things God has said to us by way of revelation and have shrunk back into our provisions and our plans driven by fear and anger. This is the sin of Cain before He killed Able. He provided his own plans, his  own covering and provisions.  But we believe to the saving of the soul.
So we walk in the light as He is in the light”. And it is not that He is just in the light, no. He is the source of the eternal light. “For in Him is no darkness at all”. He is the great light from Heaven Paul saw who was brighter than the sun. He is the light the radiance and the Glory of the eternal Father. The Father of Glories, whose Father we have if we behold His Glory to be transformed “from glory to glory as by the spirit “.  We have fellowship, koinania. We have oneness with the diety of the Father the Word and the Holy Spirit and fufilled the word Jesus said in John 17 “Father that they may be with me where I am, to behold my glory”. The Glory of the Father for in Him dwelled the fullness of the Godhead body;”. And we are complete in Him.
So do not be limited by your carnal senses of sight and sound and “receive with meanness the engraftible word which is able to save your soul”.
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND

True reconciliation. To the beginning

Download PDF
    The religious bludgeoning of the body does not please God. Look at the prophets in the day of Elijah. The repetitious prayers are proof of unbelief or they would not repeat themselves. “Do not pray like the heathen for they think they will be heard by their many words” But “we speak and believe” and then we receive.
     It was said of Christ ‘I have come for you to have life abundantly “? And He did come. And we do have life. “He who has the Son has life”. Eternal life already.
   In the beginning it was not the body that was responsible for displeasing God but the mind that disbelieved and broke faith. This is why we are called to “be ye transformed (transfigured) by the renewing of your mind” and not the body. The body returns to the dust as stated in the beginning.
    It is in the reasoning of the mind behind the choices that compels the body.That was the place where Adam fell.  There is nothing recorded about him bruising his knees when he fell. He fell in understanding. The mind was in error, not the body. The body can do nothing apart from the spirit, for “the body without the spirit is dead” being instructed by the mind.
     So as we are to be renewed in thinking, being that our mind is re scripted and reformatted by Gods word. That we are restored to “that which is from the beginning”. To what Adam had before he fell. The flesh does not have to be removed but the filth of carnal thinking does. This is how we learn to think like God for “we have the mind of Christ”.
  Collossians 2.  In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins[c] of the flesh, (but not the flesh itself, just the sins) by the circumcision of Christ,12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith  in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him”.  And this is all done outside of the human perceptions of sight and hearing in the realm of faith. “To those who have ears to hear and eyes to see” of a different nature.
   God made man from the dust of the earth.  He set him “over the works of His hands” and told him to “go forth and have dominion”. And this was while he was in the body formed of dust of which God had said “it is good, very good”. This is the objective of salvation and the redemption and restoration in the mind and not the body. But the body can be the lucky recipient of a renewed mind for “as He is, so are we in this world” and “we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the glory and the excellency may be of God and not ourselves”.
   Mankind was made of clay like Adam to reflect the glory of God while in a body in this way but “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. And the purpose of the Gospel is to be restored to the glory while we are in our humanity saying “we are transformed into His (Christ’s) same image from glory to glory as by the spirit of God ” in this age of time and matter, to have dominion. (2 Cor 3.18) To rule and reign. And we do this “in Christ”. Does not scripture say that we are seated in the heavenlies in Christ”? And “of His fullness we have received”? This is what the spirit of satan blinds people to and delays them from. And they call it a second coming. To be transformed by a future event of a physicality and not the spirit. (Read 2 Corinthians  3 and 4) The second coming mindset is the veil that blinds you and keeps you from your transformation. They just redefine Gods Kingdom to the view the Jews had. The one they were condemned for. A gospel of a future coming king and kingdom saying. “When does the kingdom of God appear?” Christ answered them “It cometh not with observation”. This is what the 2nd coming seekers reject and say it does. What did Christ then tell His followers? “They will say look here and look there. DO NOT GO AFTER THEM!
   It is an end times saving that Paul misunderstood in his first letters that competes with the message of “that which is from the beginning” spoken by John the beloved who also said ” what is it that overcomes the world? Our faith!”  Paul later learned by revelation and displayed more clearly in the books of Ephesians and Collossians. John said “we are in the end times, but some still say it’s later. And they call it “a 7 year tribulation. John said “They came out from among us? And they did. The 2nd coming gospel use the same scriptures in a different way. A way that denies the savior of the cross and ascribes a saving to happen later. Woe

  The truth is the saving and redemption is to what  Adam lost. A co-conscientiousness with God the Father. As Christ prayed “Father that they may be one with us”.  This is the reconciliation of the cross Paul saying “God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us this word of reconciliation. (not a future reconciling)20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. (this is what Adam lost and passed onto all humanity21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (Adams loss restored, Adams fallen lifted back up, raised and resurrected). This is not a gift delegated to a 2nd coming savior but the cross as having happened. The reconciliation of the world described in these verses are a new world view that the created world responds differently to.

 

Adam departed from his God given role and took on the contrast. The creation that he was to “have dominion over” now had dominion over him saying “of the sweat of your face you shall work the earth and thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you”. God did not curse the earth or Adams flesh. Adam started thinking backwards relying on his lower nature and its senses. So implemented the opposite of faith being shame, fear and self preservation as the carnal senses informed him. Proof of this is he did work with his hands in the Garden as evident by the fig leaf where he covered himself in a shameful way. Until then God was his covering and to that we are restored by means of the gospel. Like when God visited Abraham God  said to Him “I am your shield and your exceedingly great reward”. That about covers it. What more could you want?  You see all Gods works are word.

      But Adam left his God given role and received the opposite.  Instead of having dominion? He now was dominated by the very thing he was to rule. The “work of His hands” was because a spiritual polarity shift took place. His lower level took center stage and became responsible to cover and provide for himself. He stood alone. He lost the Holy spirit and the ability to do the work of the Father. WORD.  He was thinking backwards. His mind was now darkened and opened up a void in himself of darkness. This is the place where the spirit of God was. Which is now the place of a darkened heart to those who are disobedient. Adam was providing for himself as evident by the fig leaf and rejected Gods provisions. From this he needs to be redeemed, restored and renewed. He needs to be saved from this .

   And this is what the gospel does to those who hear Gods word and believe it. We are re clothed. We are covered and refitted to glorify God by doing what God does, which is to speak a thing to be. “For greater works shall you do because I go to the Father” were the words of Christ”. In this way “we are a kind of first fruits of His creation. We are His kind and not fish, fowl or animal. This is what it means to “put on Christ.  And this is mandated now and not at a 2nd coming. We become saints, holy and glorious like “the Father of Glories”. We become “the perfect man is able to bridle his mouth”.

   The second coming mindset is nothing but a series of formulas and carnal computations applying Gods word in a way to appease the carnal senses that in effect makes God weak and unavailable as they wait for another carnal event. We are instruction to “cast down arguments and every thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”. And that is what they do. They obscure the truth to unsuspecting souls. But we destroy their lies. And it is in this way that we over come Satan, sin, death and the 2nd coming gospel.
Also when we are instructed to enter His rest? His rest is from working. We are invited to stop working the curse. To retire from that. When Gods word became flesh He said “come unto me all ye that are laden with burdens and I will give you rest. This has full meaning being associated with working the earth in sweat yielding thorns to be reversed and enter Gods rest and reliance on Him. This can only be done when you do what Adam ceased to do. The works that you cover yourself with is then replaced by Christ. As it says “He is the propitiation for the whole world” not just your personal short comings. You must believe again. He distrusted and followed another. He was left alone to provide for himself. He did not trust and believe in God. To trust in God and His perfect provisions saying “from every tree you may freely eat” It is as if God said everything is freely yours to use at your discretion, and now through the gospel “of His fullness we have received”.
      Allow Him to cloth you and discard the fig leave. Lay aside all the guilt, shame and fear and believe. Does not scripture say that “God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could think or ask according to the power that works in us “? Is He in you?
     When Adam fell he awakened lust and he left the provisions of God. It was put in play for man to be subdued in that way. Lust being a carnal appetite that is never satisfied. But in Christ we are “filled to the full”. As He said “whoever believes in me shall never thirst”
    “We have been delivered from the corruption that is in the world through lusts” and because of this “we are partakers of the divine nature”. And the exchange and polarity reversal takes place by receiving the holy spirit. Did you receive that?
   So if we can learn to appropriately apply the gospel to our thinking and be re-scripted in our mind to receive the saving of the cross, we need not look for another saving. A 2nd coming saving. A savior. A 2nd coming savior. Respond to the “Lo I am with you always” and “Behold, I stand at the door and knock”. Be restored to this world view. Be renewed to this.
1 John 2,24 If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
You see it is from the beginning. It is not an end time thing at all.
    The Kingdom of God is at hand!
