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

The Way. The new and living one

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 . Yes like all the Pharisees he was looking for a physical manifestation of a savior, King and Kingdom to appear on earth.
 
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 too believed in the resurrection and a physical savior in a physical City. From this Paul/Saul needed to be transformed from and saved and he conveyed this to us saying “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind” and “the weapons of our warefare are not carnal but mighty through God pulling down strongholds and everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”.
 
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. This qualified him as 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.
 
 Paul had persecuted the people of the Way for believing in a resurrection and a kingdom different than what was common as a Pharisee. The difference between the two views was so large in fact that Paul consented to the murder people of The Way.
 
 
So as one who is qualified having seen the Lord to be a disciple he 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.
 
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 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 in the here-and-now for that was his calling and goal.
 
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. 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 pharasitic, sons of Satan and a brood of vipers, whited sepulchers full of dead mans bones. Those are the words of Jesus to that bunch.
 
And so it is Christianity Today that predominantly proclaims another coming Christ with an earthen fabricated kingdom. 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 consruct and wonder why there’s no power in their gospel. 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 “.
 
If you believe what Saul did and you see this illuminous revelation, you should commence your journey  and sojournship as pilgrims from a physical, visible Kingdom as did Paul and join the followers in faith who it was written of that “they looked for the city whose builder and maker is God”.  Whose consrtuct is superior to time and matter being the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundations of the world.
 
If we follow him through the successions of Revelations then we can hope to acquire the resurrection. And the very thing that he had hoped in. 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. 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 consrtuct of matter. That is in Christ the fullness dwelleth in him, that 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” and need not a physical Jesus to be raised and seated in the Kingdom for we have this (Eph 2.8)
 
 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! 
Cut….
Acts 9:22 and Paul increased all the more in strength proving that Jesus is the Christ”. He was arguing against a future Christ and Kingdom.
 
 In Matthew 16 when Christ ask the disciples who do men say that I am? Then he said “who do you say that I am.”  the reply “you are the Christ the son of the living God”. So we see here at Paul’s conversion that he had the same cornerstone of faith. The first confession of faith from the people of the Way is Christ is already the Christ and need not appear as the Pharisees believed.
 
 
 
 
In 2nd Corinthians 4:14 he says knowing this that the Lord will raise us up and Raise Me Up and present us with you” in other places says he has raised us up he has translated us and seated Us in heavenly
 
Paul had just said old things passed away All Things become new had not yet been new to this concept that we being delivered from the power of Darkness you translated into the kingdom of the son of his love that was a later revelation but here in Corinthians he saw the Gathering to be raised up together with Jesus to be presented with Jesus as a point in time in matter so we see Paul here growing by degree that we too may also attain to Greater stations of faith John in his first epistle talks about that which we have heard which we have seen which we have handled concerning the word of life that we have heard it handled that these things are said so you two can have Koinonia that we have fellowship with one another and this point India and fellowship is the Oneness in the very Gathering that Paul was seeing as future but the thing that John saw that was greater was a fulfillment of the words Jesus spoke Incheon 17 Jesus said father that they may be with me where I am that they may behold my glory NF the word was spoken you can rest assured that the word was answered the one who said left there be light said father that they may be with me where I am
 
Paul had just said in our opening passage We Believe therefore we speak but had not yet believed or spoken as John did about Koinonia in the Oneness and John himself was not speaking of something new for he also wrote the Epistle of John so the whole purpose of the works of Jesus Christ is to get us to the Oneness with the father with the Sun to have fellowship with him to see handle touch and taste of the word of God who became flesh of whom we beheld the glory of the only begotten of the father full of grace and truth so yes Paul was right that Christ would raise us up together but it is not to a place in time and matter that this is accomplished for if God is invisible Immortal eternal in order to be gathered to him to be collected to him we have to put on a collection of his say
 
 Paul in 1st Corinthians 15 he talks about those who were raised with Christ about 500 of whom some have fallen asleep Paul also talks in Thessalonians about those who sleep in Christ he goes on to say that another place though that if he’s absent with the flash is present with the spirit present with the Lord of what she’d rather be with the Lord but it’s needful for him to remain here so which one of these two concepts is true is there a sleep by which we wait for all Humanity to catch up then we are awakened free even Isaiah says awake s*** yourself from the dust of the earth and put on your beautiful garments here we go again that Paul is transitioning from a physical Resurrection mindset to the resurrection of faith but even his confession saying that absent from the body present with the Lord he is still in air for the Lord is the Way I Am With You Always even to the ends of the ages and it was Jesus who said that whoever believes in him is past the judgement who also said whoever believes in me I will raise up at the last day who also said whoever believes in me I will rise up at the last day not meaning a day and time in matter but he will rise up to the last day if that was not true how could join the Apostle in the opening phrases of the book a revelation say that he was in the spirit on the Lord’s Day so we can hold on to all our stature in the spirit as Thomas said not sure I sent it so it is sufficient and Jesus said have I not been with you so long Thomas and you don’t know these things who was also Christ to say I have many things to tell you however you are not able to Bear them right now or you are not able to receive them right now but it is faith that comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God and as we immerse ourselves in the word of God and collect ourselves with these Pearls of Truth it becomes a greater reality and more concrete than any granite or marble on planet Earth
 
So is Paul who needed to witness the resurrection of the Lord who was raised up for this very purpose to testify of the Resurrection to the Jews and also to the Gentiles but it was not I repeat it was not the fairest cynical concept of Resurrection that parallels with the commonly talk to you today Foreigner all religious leaders have slumped down into the lower levels of faith as dit the Jewish leaders Paul was to testify of the resurrection of faith window fantasies question Christ about the resurrection didn’t he say it come with not with observation so this is as close as you’re going to get to a rapture in the blank in the twinkling of an eye we are respected so it so that we too can walk in newness of life in this is what we profess at baptism that we died with Christ and we are raised with him in newness of life and this is Paul’s teaching in Romans because he finally got it
 
It was the writers of Hebrews who said let us therefore go on to perfection imperfection is something a second coming secrecy’s as a combination and time and matter and is bypassed of the gift altogether to this mindset we need to be cleansed from in this we will do if God permits and God help us help us cut asunder by Your Word the false concepts of faith that keep us faithless let us learn the lessons of Paul let them be laid out before us like Boulders and rocks to help us jump across the creek to the other side or let them be ringlets on a ladder that we may arise and go up from here lest we be found Unworthy of the gift and the unworthiness is a self Proclamation because the blood of Christ paid to give you nothing less 4 does not scripture say of his fullness we have received my question is then have you and if you have not why not
 
It was the writer of Hebrews who also said the Lord tarries not his coming for he who comes is coming in Terry is not no he tarries not not for the 2000 years that’s been imposed upon would be believers no he tarries not especially not for 2000 years for even in the parable it was the Wicked servant who said the Lord delays is coming and that’s where all Second Coming Seekers find themselves and faithlessness expecting to see a product of time and matter what he who is a turtle is Immortal and invisible so why should he appear like you
 
Why did Paul circumsize Timothy? Why did he take oaths? Why did he adhere to some Pharasitic practise and not other? He was still confused about them.
 
Paul in Thessalonians when talking about those who sleep in Christ was speaking by the parasitic of mine said he was graduating from he later said when he’s absent from the body is present with the Lord
 Who also says in the book of Acts that the purpose of the Gospel mr. Raise us up and give us an inheritance among those who are sanctified
 

WORD

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

Paul. Resurrection by degree.

“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
   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 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.
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!

Stir up by remembrance

     I know you know these things but it’s good to keep it fresh. Even as Peter said “to stir up your mind by way of remembrance” Saying of God by the gospel.

 

Col 1.13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the Kingdom of His Son.
2 Pet 1.3 His divine power has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness.

This is a done deal and this is before a 2nd coming.

 

2 Pet 1.4 We are partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption of the world.

Now in this day and age.

 

These are all past tense fulfilled in Christ to be put on by the working of faith, which is our duty to God. Our faith which is our invisible umbilical cord to the invisible God. For “without faith it is impossible to please God,  you much first believe that He is and He is a rewarder to those who diligently seek Him”. And this He does as we seek, not as we wait to die or be raptured, saying “seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and these things will be added to you”.. And since we have these things, our spirit is already where our body wants to go, but our body will never go there. However the redeemed can experience the benefits and pleasures and because the redeption is complete “we are a new creation in Christ” as all things have been

And this includes earth. Yes earth is restored to the beginning being good, very good.  The

 

“He has (already) qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance”? So we don’t need another day. We shouldn’t rely on a 2nd coming but faith. “From faith to faith”  A 2nd coming would be factual. Christ said His kingdom is “not of this age” so we should expect something superior to time and matter.  And His Word is

 

Our man is a digit, A singularity, a human, defined as a person in place and time. This is our old nature. It was Christ who became a man like us for us to become like Him saying “in the beginning was word” and “the word became flesh and dwelled among us” and “to as many as recieved Him? To them He gave power to become His people” not of a future hope but because the New Covenant is now in effect.  “We knew Him once as a man, a digit, a singularity, but henceforth know we Him like that no more. (2 Cor 5.17) He is no longer a singularity and if anyone is “in Christ” they are no longer a singularity constricted to their old humanity, but are a “new creation” in His image, being ubiquitous. Not being restricted to this creation of time and space. God is spirit and He seeks those to worship Him in spirit and truth which precedes and supercedes time and matter.

The very reason that the Word became flesh and dwelled among us was to proof that godliness or God-like-ness is a reality while we sojourn here. We too

 

So being “in Christ”, “in the Spirit”, we have been quickened, we have been translated, we have been Raptured, we are where flesh and blood cannot go. This is why we “know no man, who is a believer, after the flesh” being a digit, a human. “For we have this treasure in earthen vessels for the excellence and the Glory is of God and not our digit. And since we are “in Christ”, “in the Spirit”, we too are partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light right now. Col 1.12

 

Our carnal desire is to be with a carnal Christ  but this can never be. Flesh and blood does not, and cannot inherit the Kingdom. And this body does not go there it returns to dust. It is not for the physical eye or the physical ear. “For seeing with their eyes they see not and hearing with their ears they hear not.  For it is with the heart one must see and hear to understand the things of God “. It is the new man made in His image that rules over the flesh. So the flesh can enjoy it saying “For He has given us richly all things to enjoy “.

 

So if we were Raptured, or taken away from this world in our current phase of transformation, we would freeze in our current condition as scripture says “when time is no more” ? “Let him who is unjust be unjust still he who is filthy let him be filthy still, he who is righteous let him be righteous still, he who is holy let him be holy still” Rev 22.11.

God would have to re-create the same current earthly conditions to finish His work in us. That is why we are here. As He said of this creation that “it is good, very good”. Earth is perfectly qualified to confine the fallen and teach renewal to the redeemed.

 

This is why eschatology and end times fascinations can be so dangerous. By being an escape from the greater work God wants to do in us now as we are instructed to “put on Christ’ in the here and now, and from Colossians 3 “since you are risen with Christ (not if) seek the things that are above. And verse 10 ” put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him”? But some wait to be raptured?

 

Eschatology focuses on and speaks of another day and derails the work of the Holy Spirit now who says Today! If you hear His voice. For “since there remains a rest for the people of God?” “see that you do not refuse Him who calls us from heaven”. And “why seek ye another? ” And “behold it is I! I kill and I bring to life Deu 32.39-40

 

If anything is unfruitful, it is a teaching to the body of Christ that morphs with every new fear, to keep people spiritually paralyzed and focused on the future and not real growth. Who does that sound like? Who steals, kills and destroys? Who detains and distracts? I mean Nibiru? Blood moons? What will they think of next? These are carnal fascinations with no connection to the invisible immortal eternal God.

 

So why do we need a rapture? To be saved? To be delivered from this evil world? To be quickened? To be translated? This has already happened if you neleive the scriptures, if you are “in Christ” who said “Father I pray not that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one”?.. And He did if  you can receive it,. You are already in His will, why would you want to go somewhere else?

 

What shall separate us from the love of God “in Christ”? Height? Depth? Government powers? Demonic principalities? A sword? A famine? Martial law? Through all these we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

As Joshua and Caleb said of the promises f God ” if God has given us the land (invisible promises) we are well able to possess them!” These two men “were of a wholly different spirit” than the fear mongers of that day, and so are we.

 

As in Daniel there were 3 men threatened with fire, and their reply? God is able to deliver us from the fire, but even if He doesn’t I will not worship your image. It was in the fire where the forth man was seen. We know who He was. It is in the fire we learn to partake of heavenly pleasures scripture saying “think it not strange concerning the fire which is to try you as though it’s strange.  For as you partake in the fire, is for you to experience Gods glory. And we do in greater degree after the trial and need not wait for a 2nd coming Jesus.

So fear not these end time images they present to you for they will fail as do all prophecies (1 Corinthians 13.8 ). And they will present another and they will fail too.  Do not fear little flock. We are where we need to be. “In Him”.

Jacob’s Ladder 3 The Gospel by degree


Jacob’s Ladder part 3. The Gospel by degree. “To the degree that ye have attained so walk ye in it”

It was Paul who said that Christ was made poor for us to become rich. He bore our spiritual poverty . And Paul also said of himself “so that we would become rich”. You see God the Father did not leave us poor and destitute. We have an inheritance and not like the inheritance of a piece of paper called “A will and testament” with a signature of a deceased.  Our inheritance is the impression of God in the face of Jesus Christ on our souls. But of this inheritance there is only one access. And that is by faith as we see the immensity of the promises of God given to us that “we are partakers of the divine nature” as promised by the gospel. It is in this way we realize our inheritance in the here and now and need not wait for another for if God has given us EVERYTHING THAT PERTAINS TO LIFE AND GOD-LIKE-NESS and that WE ARE PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE now, what does a 2nd coming Jesus give us that we don’t already have? It was “by His stripes we are healed” said Isaiah. Meaning the cross. He healed the effects of the fall in Eden for us to be restored to that which is from the beginning being like Adam in Eden in fellowship with God.
    That relationship is restored even as Paul said “I plead with you by the mercies of God be ye reconciled! ” And this all takes place at a one time public offering of the cross “each one in their own order ” and not at an encore presentation called the 2nd coming. That is a faithless gospel that expects to appease the carnal senses at a spectacular event expressed in time and matter,  a consistency God is not.
     Here again is another error by the second coming gospel purveyors. They suppose to be stricken until they physically see a redemption from Earth. They believe they are in limbo in need of the 2nd coming. It is that their foolish mind that is darkened by denying the “glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”. They are blinded by the god of this age that provides another message of another Savior of time and matter to do something for you as if the work already finished in Christ by the cross is insufficient. And this insults the spirit of grace.
   But “my Lord delayeth not his coming” as supposed by the wicked servant. And from Hebrews 10? for the just shall live by faith and if any man draw back my soul has no pleasure in him saith the Lord for the Lord. Not meaning he waits not to come but he comes even now but it is the Second Coming seekers who cannot seek or see this 4 they are looking with the wrong set of eyes having eyes to see and ears to hear they see nor hear not the things of God for those with the heart that one sees and understands things of God
And it is because the Second Coming purveyors think that a perfect man has only to do with being perfected that are rapture they cannot have this they are robbed of the reward they are kept from the gift of God who has redeemed us to the cross of the blood and if redemption means anything other than restoration and reconciliation it has no meaning at all
Think about it if a person is drowning just because somebody grabs a hold of them to bring them to shore and holds their head above water you cannot say they are saved they are being saved salvation is incomplete and it is in this way the second coming forebears suppose salvation to mean something other than being saved they are at a midway point waiting for another Jesus to come stop them from drowning in the things of this age when if they knew the works of God and the power of God through word, they would appropriate the promise that Jesus said “father I do not take them out of the world but I pray that you keep them from evil”. Then having this promise tried and receiving the gift that is given. This is how the Word of God is alive. That the promises are appropriated. And as Peter says we are partakers of the divine nature having xscape the corruption that is in the world? So we do. This is done by faith and not a second coming man called Jesus. Amen?
Paul the Apostle was counted among those who were most antagonistic towards God before his conversion. He was met on the road to Damascus by a shining light and his journey began.  it was Paul who was selected by the Christ to lay out the path from that antagonistic belief system to the living God when it was said “who are you Lord? To which Christ replied “Why kick ye against the goads? He was to be a foundation stone of the Kingdom.
    So it was Paul who grew by degree in Revelation from the antagonistic Jewish culture that was left “not one stone upon another” that Christ used to make a bridge from the Satanic religion that rejected Christ to believe in the living God.
Before Paul’s conversion he was found as one who murdered the followers of Christ. He was chief among  sinners and became a prototype for his peers. And of his peers it was said that they were a “brood of vipers”. And of his contemporaries it was said “you travel land and sea to make convert and when doing so you make them twice the sons of Hell as yourself”. You see when Christ chided with the Pharisees he told them “you are the sons of your father the devil” who was a liar from the beginning. And when Christ chided with them? They gnashed at Him with their teeth. Wasn’t this a symptom of those who are cast into outer darkness? And that is where they were. They were sons of outer darkness being darkened in their conscience, in their mind, rational and spirit and drawing men to themselves.
 This is where we start today for this is where Paul started.  So it should not be surprising to see in Paul’s epistles a transition from that unholy religion to faith in the living God. So do not be surprised to see a mix in concepts or to see Paul’s later letters not coinciding with his earlier letters. Because of this it is impossible to read all scripture together as harmonious on an equal plane as demonstrated from Jacob’s Ladder part 1 & 2. It is this one reason that there are so many Christian religions and denominations today. We should see scripture as hills and mountains to climb and not a level valley to hurl darts at each other. “Come, let us rise from here”.
So Paul’s mind had to be washed from his earlier concept of death and resurrection and the recreation.

Resurrection Defined

1/02/16
Resurrection is commonly taught  as taking place at the end of the carnal life, at the death of the human body. That heaven and the Kingdom of God or an eternal bliss is later.
   To understand scriptural resurrection we must first understand what the fall is because resurrection is essentially  a reversal of the fall of Adam and Eve. “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. To this they must be lifted from the fall to be raised or resurrected,  restored, renewed and made whole. And how is this to be done? Through the gospel.
   Resurrection is a restoration a redemption and a renewal of what was lost and displayed  in the account of the Garden of Eden. This is when and where mankind fell saying “in that day you shall surely die” and it was immediate. They spiritually died by loosing the indwelling of Gods Holy Spirit. In the beginning God created man from the dust of the Earth then he breathed in him the breath of life and he became a living soul. When he fell he lost the Breath of Life. He lost eternal life and was sent out of the garden saying that he was denied the tree of life is to eat and live forever. To this he needed be restored and this is the purpose of the Gospel. For us to be a living soul and eat of the tree of life and live forever. If we believe the gospel this is what we receive.
For the reversal of the fall we learn from book of Romans. ” Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life”. And ” 10 And “if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead also gives life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who (now) dwells in you”.  And “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.”  
   This is scriptural resurrection without a visual death. And when “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” He demonstrated for us that godliness, meaning God-Like-Ness can happen in our human bodies. Christ had a human body and said “I am the resurrection and the life” and Adam had a body before he fell when the Father said of him “it is good, very good.” This is the Restoration in the resurrection.
 Now from the old testament.
Isaiah said of this “Your dead shall live;
Together with my dead body[b] they shall arise. (26.19)
   Here we have a revelation from the prophet, that we rise in Christ. “In His dead body we shall arise”. We rise in his dead body not our own. This is what it means to be “in Christ” and not “in Adam”. All who are in Adam are dead, but in Christ we live. We associate with Christ of who Isaiah was talking about through baptism by the working of faith when we denounced our previous association with our Adam fallen sinfulness and die to that to come up out of the water proclaiming to be righteous and new. And if we profess that? You can be sure that God will hold you accountable to that event and your words.
To be “in Christ” is to be in the new Adamic replacement. Paul called Christ “the last Adam” who became “a life giving spirit”. He goes on to say that “we knew Christ in a human body , but we know Him like that no more” describing Christ’s invisibleness, but also showing that “in Him dwells the fullness of the God head body” while He was incarnate. Yes! The Word became flesh and dwelled among us for us to be like Him while we are incarnate saying “as He is so are we in the world”. And we are like Him now if we can learn to receive it.
Here then is the problem. We baptize in religious settings then turn and talk about the 2nd coming Christ. To another resurrection of another  time when a God man will visit planet earth and deliver us from all our woes and resurrect or rapture our mortal bodies and this is the error. Because “From dust ye are to dust you return” and flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom”. But the mind does, and “that which is flesh is flesh and that which is spirit is spirit, you must be born again”. How? By these words. “We are brought forth by the word of truth to be a first fruit of His creation” while we are in our humanity. Or if you can’t believe this? Then believe the lie and wait.
   Was the Word who became flesh they call Jesus the savior? Did He rise from the dead? Then perform your duty of faith and believe! Rise with His dead body and receive your inheritance now. For all the promises of God are yes and amen in Christ”. And “TODAY is the day of salvation.  That other message is of another saving of another savior of another resurrection in a different time? That is what detains many from their inheritance now.
  Here is another perspective.  2 Corinthians 5.1 For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked.
    Here we have Paul explain that our new body is not physical saying when the body is destroyed we shall not be found naked. Why? Because hopefully you are not waiting for a new physicality but are being clothed with our new habitation which is from heaven now. “lest we be found naked”. That is where the 2nd coming mindset leaves you. Naked. We are to be clothing ourselves with our heavenly habitation, our attire our new nature now. The new body is now as we re-assemble the testimony of the Word of God being the very genetic code of Gid we absorb in ourselves and become new. Even as Paul went on to say: 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ,” And this all happens in the here and now because of the proof at the cross. Not at an illusive 2nd coming. “We are a new creation”? Yes! The newness is as we put on Christ as scripture mandates. We see Him as He is before He became flesh and dwelled among us. Which is? Invisible like the Father. The Word of God fully expresses the thoughts if God and the two are one. We become one with them “for we have the mind of Christ”. No Man has seen the Father ? Yes, but Christ declared Him” for our transfiguration. He made the Father visible to the respirited mind of faith. Even as the man Jesus said ” He who has seen Me has seen the Father and from now on you have seen Him and known Him”. How? By revelation. Revelation being a renewed thinking as we accept God as He truely is. Eternal, immortal, invisible. The only wise God”. 
Paul instructs us to put on our heavenly habitation from God eternal in the heavens now while we are sojourning in the human body so that we are not found naked? Meaning spiritually naked. Not naked like Adam who clothed himself in a fig leaf and not of God. He chose the physical over the spiritual and broke free from God. This is the reason Christ prayed “Father that they may be one (equal) with us”. So the resurrection is our invisible, eternal part that we put on now.
      Doesn’t scripture say that we are being transformed into His self same image from the glory to the glory by the spirit? Then why are some waiting and looking to the sky as tho they will be lifted up and leave their empty clothes laying on the ground as if they discard their falleness then? These people are “poor blind and naked”. Poor because they reject the gift, blind because they think the Kingdom is later, and naked because they wait for a physical change. Even Paul said in 1 Corinthians that the physical body is first and then the spiritual.  The body returns to dust. But some think it’s raptured?
So we have to discard the traditional religious concept of new life after a dead body as Jesus said ‘he who believes in Me has passed from death to life ”  and receive the resurrection of faith As Defined By scripture. That “TODAY is the day of salvation “. That we return to being a living soul. God says “I have heard and i have helped” And as John the Baptist said ” behold the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world”? And he did to the renewed mind by renewing the spirit. Meaning the saving from the world and the consequences of the curse for the restoration the redemption the renewal and the resurrection as scripture repeatedly says.
     This is the fulfillment  of what Jesus said “Father I pray not that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from evil ” so He does. The curse is reversed to the renewed mind of faith. This is our invisible part that we keep when the body is discarded and after. The body cannot add or take away from this. But the mind can for “we are partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust”? So we do.
      Simply put resurrection means we are no longer in a fallen condition with Adam “. We are lifted up from the fall to what Adam lost. We are raised “with My dead body they shall arise”.. Adam and Eve fell and need to be lifted back up from a fallen state, a state of being dead by loosing fellowship with God by loosing His holy spirit. That was death, not a physical death.
     To be respirited means to be redeemed, restored and recreated to realize that everything from the beginning has been good very good and to partake of that. That is “if you can receive it”.
    We are raised up “to the last day” and not at the last day. Jesus tried to explain this to Mary and she didn’t get it so He cried.  Why? Because it’s the Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” which the 2nd coming seekers deny because they look for a physical event, but the fall was spiritual. There was no cataclysmic event when he fell and there is none when we rise. It happens in the blink of an eye, unnoticeable to human perceptions. It was in the thinking that the departure took place.
 
We are in Adams “In that day ye shall surely die”, or we are “in Christ, in “The Day of our Lord” by what we believe “The Lords Day”, “In That Day”. We are in the day you shall surely live. This is TODAY if you can hear His voice. And “see that you do not refuse Him who speaks from heaven?
     There are two time frames. The many days of Adamic humanity defined by days measured in 24 hour intervals where everything is in a constant fight with death and decay, or “That Day” known as the day of the Lord. The day where there is no night for the Lamb is it’s light. The day that has no start or end where the Almighty lives. Not Adams days but “That Day”.
Isaiah 59.1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear.” But some preach of another saving and rob people of Gods saving power. The 2nd coming mindset creates double minded people who are “unstable in all their ways, let not that man suppose he will receive anything from the Lord”. (James 1.8) So they pray repetitiously and say Gods will be done, but scripture says “ask anything in My name and the Father will do it”. They do not have this. They do not have the correct savior.
This is what it means to be “in Christ”. Our old man is buried with Him through baptism so that as He was raised from the dead to newness of life so are we. And this resurrection happens by faith through the gospel. That “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation” which is? Peter said “you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.” What does this have to do with an end time scenario?  And what does it have to do with a carnal rapture?
Lets look at some more. When you start to see it the scriptures take on new meaning. For if you see the saving as later? You are behind the veil. Your mind is darkened by the God of this age. Read: 2 Corinthians 3 and 4 to understand the veil more) 
Collossians 2.11 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins[c] of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the (invisible to the human eye) 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.
So if you are blinded to this you can’t have this. Your mind is darkened by a distorted gospel. But “we rejoice with joy inexpressable and full of glory”.
Gods Kingdom is at hand, on the tip of your tongue. His kingdom is for today. It is Him putting off the body of sins of the flesh. Like the circumcision of the heart. WE ARE MADE NEW. We are in this way a new creation,  restored to the beginning to sojourn as man was intended before the fall. This is “that which is from the beginning.
To put off the body of the sins of the flesh is not to put off the body but the sins. The thing the flesh embodies is a belief system. Much like a book embodies certain characteristics? The book can remain but edit out certain concepts so too with the body. “For we have this treasure in earthen vessels so that the glory may be of God and not ourselves”. Yes. It’s a new embodiment of principles much like rewriting the content of the book. The story line changes. The rescripting changes the ending.
      This is what happens when we put off the sins of doubting God and distrusting Him. We “through faith anf patience inherit the promises”. Not being just a remembrance of the promises but inheriting the very character content the promises describe. We inherit the very scripting of God, the very spirit by which it is written and not just words waiting to be fulfilled at some ambiguous 2nd coming.
This is the concept of “putting on Christ” one attribute at a time “till we all come to the fullness and stature of the Son of God”. A replica. For “as He is so are we in the world”. And we are that as we adopt His embodiment of words being re-spirited for faith. For “faith comes by hearing the words of God”. We grow in this way. We look at scripture “as in a mirror” till we become the thing that is defined between the pages. “Till the day (of the old way of thinking) dawns and the morning star rises in our hearts”. This is the transformation into Gods invisible attributes described in scripture “from glory to the glory as by the spirit”.
    This is totally different then the religious concept of putting off the flesh altogether as though that is sin or bad. That we don’t do because the flesh itself is only a reflection of the contents, “So let your light shine”?
     Now if what we just talked about could be true. If you think you need to bludgeon or discard the vessel? You see Adam was in his human vessel before he died in the spirit. He then walked in death having lost Gods Holy Spirit. So the resurrection can happen while we are in our humanity by putting off only the sins of the flesh and not the vessel of the flesh itself. This is the true non religious resurrection as defined by scripture. For “those who are the sons of God are those who follow the spirit of God”. And this is what God expects us to do. “Lest we be found naked”.
This all happens as Christ showed. The pre-exsitent word became flesh and dwelled among us”? Here is the proof that the resurrection can happen in the human body. Did not the man Jesus say “I am the resurrection and the life”? Check mate. You need to make an adjustment to your thought process to receive this because “He has given us everything that pertains to life and Godliness according to the knowledge of Him who cailed us to glory and virtue., This is the treasure in earthen vessels. To put off the body of the sins of the flesh and not the body itself.
The Kingdom of God is at hand, active for today.

Daniel “The Most High rules in the kingdom of men”

Download PDF
Daniel 4.17 :‘This decision is by the decree of the watchers,

And the sentence by the word of the holy ones,
In order that the living may know
That the Most High rules in the kingdom of men,
Gives it to whomever He will,And sets over it the lowest of men.’

   This was the mindset of king Belshazzar who was in power over His kingdom. That “God rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the most lowest of men”.   But he fell from understanding and ascribed his own power and was judged. He glorified not God and ascribed power to another as though God had to regain power. Having been given the heart of a beast to eat grass like an animal “till 7 times passed over him” until? Until he had a revelation of the living God. He went from king to beast and back to king through a series of sevens untill he came to know and believe that Gods dominion is an everlasting dominion, And His kingdom is from generation to generation. Daniel 4.34
     And this is what every one does. Being made in the image of God, we are created in His image to govern,rule,reign, set in order. To “go forth and have dominion”. As we walk with God he “always leads us to triumph”. And in this way Belshazzar fell in understanding. So did Adam and Eve, so do we. We are born in a fallen state and need to be renewed in understanding of our kingship. “For all have sined and fallen short of the Glory of God” but in Christ we arise. Before that we are like beasts being subject to our environment and letting our circumstances govern our lower nature and have power over us. And for how long? Till 7 times passes over. This is symbolic of the 7 times of scripture and the purpose of the gospel. To restore us to our rightful inheritance “In Christ”.
     Through a series of sevens we arrive at the rest of God. The Sabbath. The true sabbath. Not just the 7th day but we enter the rest of God from creation, to the place before creation where God is. And the purpose of the Gospel is for us to return there. Where? Where we reign being joint heirs with Christ being “seated in the heavenlies far about all principalities and powers”.  When Belshazzar came to himself his senses, he was restored his kingship. And that is what happens to us. It is the gospel that takes us by up degree to “attain why Christ laid hold of me “. (See series on Jacob’s ladder)
      And here is where the 2nd coming message fails miserably.  They say the world is out of control and that Christ must come back and do another work because the world is out of control.  So their world is out of control. And they like Belshazzar eat like a beast the things of God and interpret His word in a carnal way until they come to know that God rules over the affairs of men and puts in place those whom He sees fit. They will remain in their mortal confinements. They will never become rulers over their circumstances. They glorify Satan as ruler.
      Paul warned of them saying “why then are you subject to the weak and beggars elements of the earth? You observe days months seasons and years.  I afraid for you that I’ve labored in vain”. The second coming seekers have Gods work set out in sevens calling it a 7 year tribulation.  That the god man Jesus will come again in a carnal way to appease their sight sound and senses then He will be king. Then God will be in control. But we have senses of a different nature.  “To those who have ears to hear” and for us who are born of the Spirit saying “many righteous men and prophets have desired to see what you see and hear what you hear but have not “. And that is? Just like Belshazzar confessed.  God is not out of control wringing His hands waiting to send His son a 2nd time to come and save us. He already did that but you don’t believe the gospel.The gospel to be restored a king so do we. We are seated with Him in the heavenlies now. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us to the Kingdom. “We have come to know and believe that God rules over the Kingdoms of men and sets over it the lowest of men’and reject the fodder of another coming Jesus. That God rules in any and all generations being “King of Kings and Lord of lords” and need not come back to do so. We who really know God and His Son know that God has come.
      They are looking for a carnal, cataclysmic intervention. And like in Daniel, if you don’t bow down and worship their understanding of scripture? They threaten that you will burn with the fire of a 7 year tribulation period. Much like Shadrach and his two friends in the fire? We call this the false gospel of hell and damnation and not “peace and goodwill towards man” of the gospel. They “know not what matter of spirit” they are. The forth man in the fire? Was the Son of God. It was the feeders of the fire who were mortally burned. And as long as you promulgate that message? You are not just spell bound but dead bound with the same demise. It was the wicked servant who said “my lord delays His coming” who was cast into outer darkness. So these are, darkened in understanding. Till when? Learn from Darius. Jesus does not need to come back to fight for this world for scripture says “the ruler of this world has been judged” and Darius confessed that “God rules over the affairs of men and sets in power whomever He wishes. And as it was said of the disciples of Christ. That after Christ was glorified they remembered these things were written about Him. Yes they are expired for “all the law and the prophets were until Christ, now the Kingdom is preached and all are pressing in”. Are you?
        So for those who are looking for a 2nd coming Jesus? They don’t know who he is. They know His works but they don’t know His ways for “in the beginning was the word and the word was God”. He only became a man for our redemption and restoration and salvation. That “He became flesh and dwelled among us” that he “being found in the appearance of man” that He “taking on the likeness of sinful flesh ” returned to His Kingship with the Father, the place of our calling. He returned to His natural natural pre-creation nature and calls us there as He prayed “Father that they may be with me where I am”.
          As shown in the parable in John 13 . Jesus was seated and taking off His cloak He took a towel and girded Himself. Having washed His disciples feet He laid aside His towel and stood back up. He put His cloak back on and sat down and said to His disciples “do you realize what I have just done?”. Jesus just showed them His Eschatology.  Nowhere was there a 2nd coming. The word became flesh  (a construct He is not naturally so why should He come back that way?) and dwelt among us.  And as the Holy Spirit now convicts and the words of Christ confirm “I go away to the Father and you see Me no more”. Why? Because His coming is the way it has always been, WORD. Before He became flesh He was WORD!  Gods Son in His natural composition is WORD. Gods word is spirit and life but many seek another Jesus who is not word but a physical thing. They don’t except Him as He truly is.
       So as long as someone eats the fodder of the 2nd coming gospel, as long as they see a 7 year tribulation and a future Christ to be king later, they are like king Belshazzar eating fodder and reject their inheritance of their salvation now. They are not “seated with Him in the heavenlies” but wait for another Jesus, another gospel and another coming. Didn’t the Jews do that?
       The Kingdom of God is at hand…. Still, as in the beginning. Come on in if you can receive it.

Define Carnal Christian

Download PDF
Carnal Christian is a term typically used for a believer who is worldly minded not being hungry for things of the spirit.
   Some think the contrast of being a carnal Christian is to be religious by casting off earthly pleasures. To be given into to church and praying and evangelizing, but this is not so.
    It was the religious leaders of that day that the man Jesus chided with the most saying “you sons of Satan, brood of vipers and whited sepulchers. You travel land and sea to make converts and doing so you make them twice the sons if Hell as yourselves “. These were the biggest offenders in carnality and offenders of the faith. It was not the common folk who didn’t go to church like the harlots, tax collectors and wine bibblers that were chided. These were the objects of attention from Jesus and not the Pharisees and Sadducee’s, priests and scribes, these were the objects of scorn.
   A carnal Christian correctly defined is someone who interprets Gods word in a carnal way to appease their outward human senses of sight, smell and sound with disregard for the invisible things of God. They want something tangible. Like Thomas “show us the Father and that will suffice”. The Lord spoke of these people saying “seeing with their eyes they see not, and hearing with their ears they hear not for it is with the heart that one must see and here with to understand the things of God. It is said of Moses that “he endured as seeing Him who is invisible”. What about you?
   Paul the apostle said “The carnal mind is enmity against God. It is not subject to the laws of God and neither indeed can be so those who are in the flesh (using the human resources of sight and sound) cannot please God”. Why? Because they want to experience God with their carnal senses and reject Him who is immortal eternal and invisible in His natural composition, whom we experience in the spirit of the mind, the place of our transfiguration “.
  It is said in the book of Hebrews to those who want please God that” one must first believe that He is, and that He rewards those that diligently seek Him”. Yes, God rewards diligently and quickly.
   And here is the infraction of the 2nd coming seeker. They believe that the Sons 1st attempt at salvation was incomplete and He must come back after some 2000 plus years and appease their carnal senses of sight and sound by a spectacular event. That Satan rules  (Hebrews 2.14 Satan is destroyed + John 3.8 John 16.9) and Jesus must come back to fix this. They believe that Satan rules the world and in this way they resurrect and empower their own foe “the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience” instead of resurrecting themselves.
It is written of them that “Satan is a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour, experienced by our brotherhood in the world”. Yes they are in the world using their carnal senses and drawn away from the true faith by this. But “we testify to what we have seen and report what we hear”. Us who have ears to hear.
    The is the fulfillment of “when you see the abomination of desolation spoken by Daniel the prophet, Let him who reads understand “? Run from that gospel. A man named Jesus will not rule planet earth from Jerusalem.  That is the abomination that kills your relationship with God and grieves the Holy Spirit. “For although they knew God, they glorified Him not, and turned the Glory of the incorruptible God into the image of a man”. That is the infraction. It  is you letting Satan rule through you for you are “taken captive to do His will”. But it should be said of you “you are the temple of God” and not a piece of real estate in Israel. That is a carnal interpretation of Gods word and it the very “enmity against God”. We are the temple of God. This is what is keeping Gods salvation from you and keeping you out of Heaven, Gods ubiquitous, ever ready Kingdom of God “at hand”.
   And you overcome that abominable beleif that “makes desolate” by being renewed in the mind. “Whom the Lord consumes with the breath of His mouth (word) and the brightness of His coming”(revelation by the Spirit) through the gospel “once and for all delivered to the saints “.  How? By applying His word by faith, the word of His mouth. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (visibly tangible) but mighty through (the invisible God) through pulling down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God “. And so we do. We pulverize thst lie.
   You see Jesus does not need to come again because “He is the same yesterday today and forever ” (Hebrews 13.8)  and He appeared once at the end of times to put away sin once and for all”. But this they deny.
 ” We have been given everything that pertains to life and god-like-ness according to knowledge of Him who calls us by glory to virtue” which is us putting on His attributes. “For in so doing you will be given abundantly an entrance into the kingdom “(2nd Peter 1)
If Jesus came back in the way they suppose He would not do something for them He has not already done. And He doesn’t like to repeat Himself. We repeat Him by speaking this gospel saying “Father I pray not just for these but also those who will believe in Me through their word “. (John 17) So we do.
  It was displayed at the cross that Satan was judged by nailing our condemnation and death there as a public spectacle. That all who believe may receive eternal life. “God sent His Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to condemn sin in the flesh” to respirit a people and put out of business the carnal senses of sight and sound for relating to God. “To those who have ears to hear” and a different nature than carnal.
    “To those who have ears to hear” is a biblical phrase to those who have been respirited with Gods Holy Spirit  to relate to Him that way “for the time is coming and now is when you will no longer worship God in Sameria or Jerusalem but in Spirit and truth. For God is Spirit and seeketh such”. (John 4). He wants your invisible part. That’s what closest resembles Him of
being flesh of My flesh (of invisible attributes seen in Christ) and bone of My bone (of being sound doctrine).
So a carnal Christian clearly defined is someone who thinks God must become a man again and do another work and another saving in a way they can see with their eyes and in doing do they reject Him who is invisible, who is the same yesterday today and forever. (Hebrews 13.8 )
 And this is why the 2nd coming gospel message is enmity against God for they say “look here! And look there! But Jesus said  “do not go after them!”  Why? Because “it cometh not with observation” of the carnal senses. (Luke 17). The second coming message is exactly the same as the message of the Pharisees.  “When does the Kingdom of God come?”
The Kingdom of God is at hand. Active and perfecting saints, even in our day.
