Sad estate of the modern Prophet and eschatology

Download PDF

Yes modern Christianity has been hijacked and has become as ineffective as the Jews in the time of Christ. They are not entering the Kingdom, nor are they allowing those to enter who are trying to do so. Mt 23.13

 

For even John the baptist asked “are you the Coming One or do we seek another.” And Jesus could have gone through a discourse of His 2nd coming and define the supposed raptures and resurrections and 7 year tribulation or whatever you see as the kingdom come and a future coming one to save and resurrect you but instead He said “Go tell John what you see” Then He describes of those who see hear walk and are resurrected then. But He must come again to do that?

 

It is the basic tenants of your faith that you announced at your baptism that you go into the water to put off the old person to be resurrected, raised up new “in Christ”  that you  now deny?

 

But our Lord has come! Hosanna, Oh Lord save now! Blessed is He who comes in the name of he Lord!” Whom are you seeking?

 

We have forward  speaking prophets that are proclaiming a 2nd coming, and another  resurrection and another kingdom to come, but the message was and still is “The Kingdom of God is at hand”.  This is that which was from the beginning. That which we have heard and handled, for we speak what we have heard and testify what we see.  

 

The false forward speaking prophets being naked and unashamed, show their ignorance and  spread confusion and lies and disruption to the body of Christ in our day by speaking of another coming one. Who authored that? The law and the prophets were till Christ. The scriptures having been fulfilled then, now we can only speak of the accomplishments of Him who said “it is done”.   For the law and the prophets were till John, now men are pressing into the Kingdom.
The prophets of old spoke forward of a coming one and the prophets of our day should be speaking of Him who came. The law and the prophets were finished with John. Jesus having fulfilled them need not fulfill them again
Even Jesus said these words to His disciples “there are some standing here today who will not taste death till they see the Son of man Coming in His Kingdom, see the Kingdom of God present with power.  Christ is not just being manifest at a 1st and 2nd coming. That is the conclusion of all the visual seekers but He says “I stand at the door and knock” Who is opening? Who is listening?
They say in their hearts “He has a second coming after certain events” of which these always change to fit the carnal fascination of the day. When the truth is He has come for some and they have received it like those of the day like Peter, “We were eye witnesses of His majesty when we made known to you the coming of our Lord”.
And it is not as though if we see Him we would be a better believer for even Peter having said these words said to us; but you have the prophetic word which is more sure than what we heard, and you do well to pay attention to it as a light that shines in a dark place till the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. This is where and how the Lord is coming for He does not come with observation for the Kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17. 20+)
It is “He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and the Lord of lords who alone has immortality dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To whom be honor and everlasting power. AMEN! (1 Tim 6.15+)

Creation serves God

Just as it is commonly thought that the gifts of Christ are actuated at a second coming, so too with the wrath of God.  But Romans 1..18 says that “the wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness. The wrath of God is not so much  a physical place as it is a spiritual reality. Although it can manifest at a place of time and matter, but it is more so the condition of the inner man.

In Ephesians 2 Paul talks about how we were children of wrath but when the grace of God appeared (not to the eyes) He quickened us. He gave us a new spiritual address. Instead of being a subject to the “prince of the power of the air, He made us alive in Christ.

In our being made alive our quickening,  even creation itself changes its disposition towards us. When the Israelite’s came out of Egypt it was through water they were saved and it was the same water that was a burning judgment from God on those who chased them down.

Of this new way creation served them like at Passover, when the angel of death passed over the Israelite’s picturing the first born of God, it killed the first born of Egypt. The same thing that kills makes alive depending on your spiritual location or disposition..

So we see too with the quail. Numbers 11.31 31 Now a wind went out from the Lord, and it brought quail from the sea and left them fluttering near the camp, about a day’s journey on this side and about a day’s journey on the other side, all around the camp, and about two cubits above the surface of the ground.”

The very sea that produced living things with fins and gills brought forth birds to feed His people. So too with the rock Moses smote for water. The creation itself in that way was renewed serving the new man in a different way

You can be in the form of a man and think it not strange to be equal with God (Phil 2.5) and you can likewise be in outer darkness gnashing your teeth in hatred like those who despise the testimony of  Christ    Your man can be on planet earth but in what is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt where our Lord was slain. (Rev 11.8) Physically it was Jerusalem.

So the Lord uses the physical for us to understand what we can’t otherwise see, and He appears at will for He is not subject to time and matter. The time delay is for us to grow in understanding. This is the age of salvation but there is coming an end where “time will be no more (Rev 10.6) and when it will be said …

Rev 22. 11 11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous[a] still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”

This is the age of grace. and what you become of it with your free will. What you receive in the spirit is your reward. Be it according to your faith. if you are able to receive.

To be “In Him” is your port hole into eternity. Not just a promise of a later time like in a 2nd coming but now in the presence of God. This is the reconciliation to the Father now. (Rom 5.11 and 2 Cor 5.18-21).  What you hope the 2nd coming to accomplish, has been done, “in Christ”

2 Peter 2. 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment,

This being reserved in judgment is usually seen by an addictive nature. The prince of the air fuels this by taking them captive to do his will. (2 Tim 2.26)  Many people are captivated by their physical senses doing service to that which they do not see. Holding to a pattern of self destruction..

So the wrath is now and has a culmination. When that light comes on then each one shall be judged for what manner of work they’ve  done.

Be on the watch for He is coming at a time when you think not, to execute judgement and reward, and He is also coming in a way you do not suppose Him to be for He comes as a thief. Why? Be cause most people are expecting Him like the commonly taught 2nd coming. To some He is even now standing at the door knocking for Judgment begins with the house of God. And if so, what will happen to the ungodly and sinners? ( 1st Peter 4.17-18)

The High Priests Breastplate

Download PDF

Caiaphas the high priest made the statement that “it is expedient that one man (speaking of Christ) should die for the people, and not only that but that He would gather together in one (in Christ) all the children of God scattered abroad.

 
This is about believers scattered about in different doctrines, beliefs and denominations. and a great truth. As He said “where two or more are gathered together in my Name there am I”, gathered “in Christ”. And as we are gathered to eternal truths that were with the father, we are gathered to something much more than a city  at a specific point in time. We are gathered to something more solid then a mountain of granite. For the form of this world passes away, so that the eternal remains. And it is not as if the eternal has to be brought down or brought back like at some 2nd coming. No it is much easier than that.
 
Deu 30.11 Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. 12 It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” 13 Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” 14 No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   This is the word of faith we preach.
 
What we are gathered to are these transparent stones of truth. It is from this quarry that we are hewn. Like Peter being a living rock, we too are living stones being built, assembled, or gathered up a spiritual habitation for God.
 
 The High Priests ephod with 12 stones
 
The high priest had an ephod which was a breast plate with 12 stones positioned on the front, over his heart. And it is these 12 stones gathered together that he holds very dear. 12 is the number of tribes of Israel and the number of disciples and symbolizes the foundation of the house of God. (Rev 21) We are His house. It isn’t until the high priest puts these on that he goes into the Holy of Holies. Without them He does not enter. What he holds dear he takes into the very presence of the Father Himself. 
 
Isn’t that what Christ prayed in John 17? Father that they may be one with us? And this prayer was said by the same person who said “let there be light”? And that did not take some 2000 plus years but “it was so”. And isn’t this He who said “take up thy bed and walk”? So too in Gethsemane He spoke and prepared a place for them and us that “where I am they may be also”. This was for them and is operational for us today. This is the message. He became sin for us to become righteous “in Him” so “be ye reconciled”. Be one with. Be gathered to the Father now, be gathered to the truth. For we have such a High Priest eternal in the heavens now appearing to the Father. For this reason we can go boldly to the throne room of grace. This is a current reality of life in the spirit to all who believe. Take caution that no one rob you of this reward of faith for your heavenly Father desires this with you. This is what He paid for with His Son. He does not come back to do this.
 
You see this is the age of transformation and transfiguration. For we are being transfigured into the same full image from glory to glory by the spirit. (2 Corinthians 3.18)
 
But there are those who believe that they are left in limbo waiting for Christ to come back and do something. That they will not believe to receive. But when Christ does come back, it is not to pick up where He left off to finish a work in you as though He did something half way. For the just shall live by faith, and without faith it is impossible to please Him. For when He comes he would not save for He already did that. For when you see it, it is not of faith, for we are saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope.
 
There is a coming a time when “time is no more” (Rev 10.6). That only the eternal remains (Heb 12.27). That which we have acquired in this age, that which we have received from Him we keep. This is our whole purpose to lay hold of why He laid hold of us. But what about when He comes? 
 
Revelation 22.11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous[e] still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” Again, time is no more. The time we live in is to put on Christ now. This time has an end.
So if we have the notion that His work will continue later we may be found slothful stewards. For He is close at hand who judges us and His reward is with Him to give as He wills. And He wants to today. “It is the Fathers good pleasure to give us the Kingdom” But if we are looking for it with our eyes it is passing before us like the wind. This is not an event but a life style. The flesh will return to the dust like it came. The transformation of our heart, mind and soul and putting on the new body is now. If we do not put on Christ and the invisible truths about Him that are Him now, we may be found naked and ashamed when He comes to wrap up this age. For we groan within ourselves not to be unclothed but to be further clothed in immortality. This is the invisible work of the “Kingdom of God at hand”.

 

7/23 The Transfiguration. His and ours.

Download PDF

Matthew 16.27 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works. 28 “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.”  And this was almost 2000 years ago.

 

Jesus spoke these words to His disciples. That some then would see Him coming in His Kingdom. That they would see the Kingdom of God present with power. It was then that Peter, James and John witnessed Christs transfiguration. We think, how lucky they were to witness such an event. Wow! To see “his face shine like the sun, and His clothes become white as light, brighter than any launderer on earth can whiten”.
 
As it says in 2nd Peter that they “were eye witnesses of His majesty” where the Father said “this is My beloved Son”. Christ as He is seen here is the culmination of everything the law and the prophets had ever spoken or seen. The purpose of all the law the prophets and testimonies was of this. To see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom. Jesus Christ in His fullness just like His Father. A chip off the ole block, His spitting image, bone of His bone. “Him you shall hear!”
 
Wow! If we could have been there and seen that. Surely if that had happened to us, we would all have apostolic faith. We could go door to door, heal the sick and raise the dead. We could save the world in no time. Our ministries would be huge! Yes this is facetious.
In 2 Peter he talks of the transfiguration saying”we made known to you the power and the coming of our Lord” and “we were eye witnesses of His majesty”. They experienced the very thing some Christians see as the“2nd coming”. They saw a full revelation of Jesus Christ as “My beloved Son”. This Coming is not a one time event as some presume, and it is not just a future event except for those who do not understand yet and those who flat out deny. It is not an event but an eternal reality to experience. To understand this is to be awake and watchful.
Think of it like this. If it is not true now, then it is not eternal. It must come to be, and some of Christianity thinks it is a physical development to some day become a physical reality and that is the blunder.
 
How could this Jesus who is “the same yesterday, today and forever” become something He is not yet? You have the wrong Jesus if He is still coming or soon to be, then He has not been something, and is in the process of becoming and by this nature He is excluded from being of God. Right here many cults can nail you to the ground and make the case that Jesus was not divine, but just a man. And by that definition they are right. A becoming one is not an eternal one.
 
A main theme in the book of 1st John is that he who believes that Jesus came in the flesh is of God. He is not referring to a man but of Him “whose goings forth or from old and ever lasting. (Micah 5.3) Meaning “Him who always is. As he also teaches “that which was in the beginning” not that which will be at a 2nd coming but that which always was and is, and Jesus Christ does not change to have to become and be something for He already is.
 
2 Peter speaks that through this understanding of His divine power, that “He has given us everything that pertains to life (eternal) and God-like-ness (the power of transformation) through the knowledge of Him who calls us”. And adding to our faith,  “for so an entrance will be supplied abundantly to us into the everlasting Kingdom of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ”. (2 Peter 1.11)  This is not speaking of a 2nd coming but an immediate reality to those who do this. It says”He who lacks these things is short sighted even to blindness and has forgotten that he is purged from his old self” ( Verse 9).
 
So we are supplied abundantly access into His Kingdom, this Kingdom which is “at Hand”. The eternal, the always was, always will be, never ending, having no beginning a place having the same make up and composition as the one who lives there in the time before time, or else where would He stay and wait like He has no home? He waits for a kingdom? Him who came and said “the Kingdom of God is at hand” also said “Heaven is my throne and the earth is My footstool. Where is the house you will build for Me?”  But He is where He was before a word of God was ever spoken. That is why the kingdom cannot come as such to those who want to see it like 2nd coming seekers. Whom do you seek? Him who will be or Him who was? Will the real Jesus stand up! And HE did and He is knocking.
This Kingdom Peter further expounds on saying that he would continue to remind them of these things. “For we did not follow cunningly devised fables (like blood moons and Nibiru) when we made known to you the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ but we were eye witnesses of His majesty”. This coming had nothing to do with what is described as His 1st coming as a baby then grown a man but Him is His eternal state in his eternal place, in Himself, for in Him all things exist. What they saw was not a preview as though it was still future. For how could they have been supplied abundantly access into the Kingdom if it was still becoming to be some day.
Now here is the point. Peter said “in doing these things an entrance will be supplied abundantly into the everlasting Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”. He didn’t say anything about waiting for a 2nd coming. Is he lying? Is there access to His Kingdom before He comes so we can see Him? Yes! This is the very place where He is transfigured.
Yes they saw Him coming in His Kingdom with great power, but peter goes on to say “but you (yes us) have a prophetic word which is more sure than what we saw, (yes more certain than the transfiguration)”. Meaning the prophetic words and the testimony of Christ will yield the same result. Wow! To see Him in His natural state without the flesh, in the place and habitation where He belongs, being Glorified and in full power. Him you shall hear! Yes! Hear His words.
 
So as it was said then and again has been accomplished to many throughout the ages and is still offered to us “TODAY” if you can hear His voice”. Even now it is just as true that there are some standing here today who will not taste death before the see the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom with great power and Glory”.
 
So this is our transfiguration, our “being transformed into His same full image” not at some 2nd coming but “from Glory to Glory as by the Spirit” in the here and now. What does that have to do with a 2nd coming? That happens now! Today! “He who will come is coming and he does not tarry! And it is by faith, it is from faith to faith and “if anyone draws back My soul has no pleasure in them; says the Lord. But we are not of those who draw back into the perdition of unbelief, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul”. Hebrews 10.37-39
 
Here is the danger that has befallen us in this 21st century. The promulgation of the faith of a Jesus at a 2nd coming denies Him who came and is coming and still at hand. We can lazily put off our change and our responsibility to believe for a hope that He will do it later.  The 2nd coming concept puts people in a perpetual state of forward looking thinking that says “Oh that His day would come and He would save us”. That He needs to still do something for us. Please take some time to process that. You see He already did that. 2 Peter 1.3 says “as His divine power has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness”. What exactly is it you need that you don’t have? Be careful what you answer for you shall have your reward. It is the evil servant who says in his heart; my master delayeth  His coming. What do you say?  
 
Yes, The Kingdom of God is still at hand.

Watch for His Coming!

Watch comes from the Greek word; gregoreuo, means to be awake, vigilant, alert. 
The root of that word comes from the Greek; egeiro, the idea of collecting ones facilities. To waken from sleep, sickness or disease. From; egersis, which means a resurgence from death. 
 
It is these words are used in association with resurrection and ascension and the watching of them. More specifically being awake and watchful is about the Lords coming in power. “Watch for you know not the day or the hour that your Lord is coming be it the 1st, 2nd or 3rd watch. But if that evil servant says in his heart “my Lord delays His coming…” meaning a second coming, he has an evil heart.
 
The people in the time of Jesus were watching for many things. 
 
Mt 17. 10 And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?”

11 Jesus answered and said to them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first[a] and will restore all things.12 But I say to you that Elijah has come already, and they did not know him but did to him whatever they wished. Likewise the Son of Man is also about to suffer at their hands.”  Jesus would suffer the same rejection. They would not receive Him.

 

So they rejected the notion that Elijah had appeared and they were also in the same way going to reject Christ’s appearing too. And this is the point. Because Elijah did not appear in the way they wanted him to, they rejected him. They did not see him with carnal eyes “Oh look there’s Elijah!”, but he had come, just not like they wanted him to. So too with Christ. Does He have to come to our carnal senses to receive Him?  

So it is now. People silence any notion that Christ appears in all Glory and power by ascribing that event to a future kingdom that follows the earthly events of a 7 year tribulation. But in killing the testimony of Christ appearing in His Kingdom they don’t kill Him but themselves. They keep themselves in their dead Adamic nature of un-belief. “Be it done according to your faith-lessness, and wait 2000 plus years if you must. But the word says…

 

Mt 24.44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” 

48 But if the evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,... and they do.

It is these people who think the coming of the Lord as a second coming a physical event on planet earth to reign here as a man, that He has delayed His coming. But who is it who stands at the door and knocks? (Rev 3.20). But some say “my master delays His coming and they don’t answer Him? They do not receive the Kingdom of God that “cometh not with (carnal) observation”, (Luke 17.22) Christs Kingdom that is not of this age. 

 

Even at His first appearing the first words out of His mouth was “the Kingdom of God is at hand”. Meaning; It is right here right now! And we reject that today and say no that’s at the second coming. Naw, that can’t be. I  guess Jesus misread the script. Well how else can an invisible God appear? A man? Who made who? Who is the image and who is the original? The original was not a man. And all that is visible was created and He is not that. So how do you expect Him to come?

 

The Lord doesn’t delay His coming for it is happening even now. It is you who delay your awakening. It is the human heart and mind that wants to see Him carnally to believe His coming. Didn’t those in Sodom want to know Him carnally? “Bring them out that we may know them”? Let us see? But the patriarchs and prophets knew Him through dreams and visions and as it was said of Samuel that the Lord revealed Himself by His word. But today He has a first and second coming and they are visual to the carnal eye? This is spiritual blindness.  Didn’t Christ say “He who has seen me has seen the Father”? So does the Father have long hair a beard and wearing a fitted sheet? Is that what Jesus meant? Is that what the father wears?

 

We need to set aside the notion that there are only first and second comings of our Lord. For How can He stand at the door and knock if He did not come? How did Isaiah see the Lord High and lifted up if He did not come? Jesus said “Abraham rejoiced to see My day, he saw it and was glad”. But we have to wait? Why did Abraham see it and we can’t? Because a lack of faith. 

 

How can we love His appearing if we do not experience it? We can experience Him now as He is in His natural invisible construct as He was before all of creation for nothing else is Him.  If you do not receive Him like this you receive nothing at all, for everything else has an end. But He is eternal, hence the gift of eternal life is Him and only Him. All such notions of a man called Jesus becoming a King on earth in a place with an address in Jerusalem are nonsense to the mind of the spirit. Those are constructs of the carnal mind that knows not God. Having a form of godliness but denying the power. Lord have mercy on us. 

 

To Him who was and is and is to come… What part of Him are you willing to receive? Him who said “I change not”, Heb 13.8 Jesus the same yesterday today and forever”. It is we who must change our way of thinking by the directive of His spirit. Do not be like the wicked servant who said “My Lord delays His coming, (meaning second coming) and miss out on the greater reality of who He is right now and who we are in Him. What do you think is at a second coming that you don’t have now? It is now to the mind who has faith and ears to hear. 

 

Mt 16.28, Mk 9.1, Luke 9.27 speaks of those who would not die before they “see the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom”, “see the Kingdom of God present with power”, and “the Kingdom of God”. But some how today this is a one time event to be later seen. But they saw it in their day. Can you see it? Do you now believe?

 

How can you participate in something you do not believe? The word said so. Hath God really said? Who are we listening to?

 

When people say in their hearts that the Lord delays His coming, thinking it is visual for their carnality, they become closed minded to the fact that He who is invisible can appear anytime He wants. They are disconnected from the Head in whom the whole body is to be joined to. They are asleep to Him who comes as He truly is.

 

To some He is a baby in a manger, but even that baby was “born King” and did not have to become one. It is their understanding that is a baby. To some Christ is still on the cross. They are still in their sins apologizing and confessing. To others the tomb is empty, and so are they being left with the how, the where and the when. But there are those who see Him ascended in full Glory and Power, from where He came. He became a man for us but He did not un-become who He was but He took on the form of a man for us to follow that where He is we may be also. To where? 

 

And Christ prayed “Father if there is any other way?” And having expired the law and the prophets Jesus became the “new and living way” The “No one comes to the Father but through Me” And “Lo I have come in the volume of the book, it is written of Me”. For all the law and the prophets did this one thing, they spoke of the day of “the Lord” and Jesus is that Day that has no night or darkness. The day that is not a 24 hour cycle, the “new day”, “till the day dawns and the Morning star rises in your hearts”. “Jesus is the bright and Morning Star” for you the entry into “that day” is to be “In HIM” . Abraham saw “His day” and was glad as all the profits spoke of “His day” and that day is. It just is. It has always been and will always be for it is eternal having no beginning or end like the ones who live there. And it is this day that we enter His rest from this creation. This day “finished from the foundations of the world”. Where the father rested from creation. Not our day or our creation but God, the “day of the Lord” Coming in great power and Glory. The disciples saw “that day” too and it was of “That day” that Christ was trying to give them when He said “the Kingdom of God is at hand” and it was “that day” when they saw Him transformed when the Father said “This is My Beloved Son, Him you shall hear” Not a baby Christ, or a Christ on the cross, or a resurrected Christ, but the One who said “Go tell the disciples that I have ascended to my God and your God, to My Father and your Father.”  Hear  this one!  “Today! if you will hear His voice”. And do we? Naw, we’ll wait for His second coming.

 

So here is where we are today. We have a bunch of sick folk sitting in churches waiting for the moving of the waters. The truncated gospel is ineffectual for change. They cannot wake up from this slumber to see Him who stands ready to save. There is no transformation in the carnal teachings that Christ will deliver us from this wicked world later at a second coming. They are in limbo not knowing Gods word or power. They do not see him who said “I will never leave you or forsake you” for He has to come back. And as He said ” Lo I am with you always” for He must come again. And “I will not leave you orphans”. Many are like a 6 year old child sitting on a curb waiting for the dead beat dad to pick him up on his visitation weekend. Even that dad wouldn’t stand up the child for 2000 years, but some how a faithful God would? Not my God. We sup often. Sometimes 3 plus times a day.

 

The “Kingdom to come” is the Kingdom at hand” In 1st John he spoke of that which was from the beginning that we heard and have seen. This is the gospel. Not “that which is at the end” like a second coming

 

The Kingdom of God is at hand. It really is.

 

THE PURPOSE OF THE GOSPEL

Download PDF

           The purpose of the Gospel is to enter the Kingdom Now!

 
The Jewish leaders in the time of Christ were chided by Him saying “you are not entering the Kingdom, not only that, you are not allowing those to enter who are trying to do so”. They could enter then as we can now. The kingdom of God is now!

 
The whole purpose and the sole purpose of the gospel is to get people into the Kingdom of God now. To be reconciled now. Not just a saying or a document but an eternal reality. All the work of Christ had no other purpose then reconciliation. “Be ye reconciled” A second coming doesn’t do this, the gospel does, for the gospel is the power of God unto salvation. Unto. It takes you all the way there, to the presence of God in Christ. 
 
Well we ask, why then do we look to the second coming? The second coming is not in scripture. He is always coming, appearing and being revealed to the mind of spirit by faith. The culmination of the age is not the actuating of the word of God. Faith is.
Romans 1.16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,[a] for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith 
Faith is the eternal substance that pleases God. The evidence of the things not seen by the carnal nature. That which will be already was, and this too is the placed for the called, the ekklesia, (we translate church). This place which is actually a who, and that who is… the one we know as Jesus Christ. In Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body, and we are complete “in Him” who is the head of all principalities and power. He governs all in His full Glory now a reining King of kings and Lord of lords, not a future one at a second coming. That is un-faith, the sin of unbelief, denying His eternal attributes and existence. Repent from that foolish mind set and receive the truth.
 
The purpose of this article and every article here is to enter the Kingdom of God and explore His greater reality. The kingdom is at hand now, and this is the eternal gospel, as much so as it was in the beginning. “The kingdom prepared from the foundations of the world.” Mt 25.34 Heb 4.3
 
You see when God rested on the 7th or Sabbath day, He rested from His works. He went back to where He came, the before time and matter of the 6 days of creation that occupies our flesh. And it is in this place we are called to and rest “in Him” the true Sabbath that all others mimic. This is the home for those of faith. Not just a focus once a week or a thing at a second coming. This place is everything that is not created. The only thing that matters is there. Everything else is being shaken. 
 
You see nothing of God can be pin pointed to a place in time for it exists outside of time and is everywhere, being ubiquitous. That is why when the temporary is removed the eternal remains because that is what was there the whole time. This is real, this is a faithful and true witness. This is what is substantial. The substance of non-substance being more durable and enduring than the hardest elements on any planet of all creation.  
 
Hebrews 4.4 Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. 2 For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them,[a] not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.3 For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said:

“So I swore in My wrath,
‘They shall not enter My rest,’”[b]

although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”; [c] 5 and again IN THIS PLACE: “They shall not enter My rest.”[d]  Not a Saturday or a Sunday service, but the true Sabbath but eternity 

6 Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience, (unbelief)

 

So the Sabbath is another name for eternity and is also understood as being “in Christ” for He is our Sabbath. He said come unto Me all who are weary and need rest. This is that. Not something some day in a future time pin pointed on planet earth. That is silly.

 

Revelation 22.10 And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand (NOW not a second coming)

12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, (immediately and consecutively) and My reward is with Me, (the fullness of the Godhead and it’s body) to give to every one according to his work.” Not of flesh but faith right now. If you can believe you can receive right now. Be it according to your faith. 

 

James 5.8-9 “The coming of the Lord is at hand” (immediately and consecutively) “The judge is standing at the door”. 

 

Christ’s coming being “Immanent” was not designed to keep us on good behavior like for parents who want to keep their kids good while they are gone not knowing when the’re coming back be it a day a week a month or a year. He is not gone that He needs to come back. You just need to wake up from the Adamic deep sleep passed on to all humanity having senses that sleep to things of the spirit. Quit believing those eyes and awaken the eyes of your understanding. Be of those who have “eyes to see and ears to hear.” 

 

“Abraham rejoiced to see my day and saw it and was glad.” Do you see it? Do you see Him? Do you see them? Abraham did. And it is this faith that He is a father of.  He believed God not for a second coming but the reality of realities. The before time Kingdom of God. He saw “the Lords day”.  The day others call the second coming.

 

And as Christ spoke to His disciples in Matthew 16. 28 “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.” This was 2000 years ago, not at a second coming. They saw Him coming in His Kingdom back then. Immediately and consecutively. Do you see this?  “To him who hears, let him hear what the spirit says to the churches”

 

1 Corinthians 2.6  We speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 

9 But as it is written:

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”[c]

10 But God has revealed (by epiphany) them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy[d]Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?”[e] But we have the mind of Christ. 

 

The mind of Christ being before the Word was spoken, where the Word and Spirit originate. This is the place of Gods eternal rest in Himself where we are by being “in Christ” the place of our calling, the purpose of all scripture. To be here. 

 

John 17.24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

 

This being spoken by the one who said “let there be light” and there was. Said these words not in vain. He is the way, the truth and the life. This is the glory that transforms.

 

We are called not to focus on the end like a second coming but…

 

1 John 1.That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life— 2 the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us— 3 that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. 4 And these things we write to you that your[a] joy may be full.

 

Take your eyes off a second coming lest the truth pass you by.

The Kingdom of God is at hand.

Antiochus Epiphanes And the Appearing of God

Download PDF

 


Antiochus Epiphanes was a historical figure known as the anti-Christ spoken by Daniel the prophet. We learn that his birth name was “Mithradates”. He changed his name when he ascended the throne. He gave himself the name Antiochus Epiphanes, and means “God Manifest”. 
 
Epiphanes comes from the greek word “epiphane” which is where we get the English word “epiphany” which means a manifestation, a striking appearance. Antiochus was in the place of God proclaiming that he was God. That he was God Epiphanes, meaning God manifest. In other words “look at me, I am God” What a pompous remark.
 
What gets me about this is not so much that he made the statement as much as what the word “epiphanes” means itself. If “epiphanes” means “God manifest” and all the world knew he was claiming to be God, why is it in our bible the same Greek word which is translated “appearing” is used in a future tense? I am Antiochus Epiphanes didn’t mean to say “I will be God manifest and I will take my throne in some 2000 plus years?” For he had ascended the throne. His statement was what he thought his current reality was, which was God of the known world. He was not making a promise of his future reality like we now use the word “epiphany” translated “appearing’ with Christ .
 
Epiphane from the Greek broke down is “epi” means a distribution over or upon. A superimposition. And the word “phane” means, to lighten, to shine, to show, to be seen. This is where the biblical words like; appear, appeared, appearing, shine, shining, manifest, manifesting and manifested come from.
 
We understand in English this to be like a light bulb turning on in our head. Isaac Newton had an epiphany when the apple fell on his head. He saw something in his head and had a new understanding. He had a revelation. A revelation not of something new for gravity always was but it was just new to him.
 
This is the way all revelation works about Christ. It becomes new to us. He is the true Epiphany and manifest God. He said “He who has seen me has seen the Father”. He is a series of consecutive epiphanies, appearances, manifestations and revelations. And what is the purpose of these epiphanies? Till we all come to the knowledge of the son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4.13)In the here and now. 
 
You see so the whole concept of the event of the second coming of Christ to come and do something for us is really more of a myth. We cancel the promises of God made known by His word to be applied by faith and trade it for an illusion. Not that Christ is not coming, but that He is not coming for what you think.
 
When He does come and asks you about your stewardship and what did you do with the gifts made available to you by His word? How were you transformed by all things I spoke? Where are you at in becoming a measure to the stature of the fullness of My Son? How are you “putting on Christ” and His truths? It is un-beleif to think the transformation is future. That at a second coming we will be transformed in a twinkling of an eye.
All transformation happens this way. Did you see your body die when you were baptized? Well that is what that act proclaimed. Did you see yourself get quickened? Well that is what happens when you receive His spirit. Did you or anybody see you get raised and seated with Christ in the heavens? Well that is what His word says He did. (Ephesians 2.6) For those who sit in misery just exacerbated waiting for the day when Christ delivers us from this evil world is just a sin, the sin of unbelief. We do not believe His word. We deny His word. We reject Him by doing so.
2nd Peter 1.4 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
The price was paid the gift was given, salvation was accomplished. This is truth. And you think, “Oh! I thought He was gonna do that when He comes back the second time”. (By the way, the term “second coming” is not in scripture. It is a concept made up by man).
Question for you. Since Christ left His Glory to become a man for a time, having accomplished salvation, and He did, and now we regard Him as human no more (2 Cor 4.16) with what body shall He appear? With what body shall we appear? The body that is sown physical and corruptible to be raised spiritual, our first man like Adam, our new man like Christ a life giving spirit (1Cor 15) Him whom when we see Him we shall be like Him, what does this look like? Well he is spirit and indiscernible to the human eye. If he appears, He appears as He is and He is invisible to the human eye. Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom! A rapture of the human body? Really? How silly and un-scriptural. “That which is flesh is flesh and that which is spirit is spirit. He will appear then as He does right now. Spirit and truth. So just take it now. 
 
He cometh with the clouds and every eye shall see Him. Ya when your eyeballs melt in their sockets for He comes in a flaming heat dissolving the elements so that only righteousness remains. (2 Peter 3.10+) For our God is a consuming fire. (Heb 12.29)
 
The thing is He is now continuously appearing, being manifested and unveiled in the spirit of our mind. This is the epiphanies, that equal the Epiphany. Him who said ” I have many things to say to you however you are not able to bear them” all at once, “however the spirit of truth comes and teaches you all things” that pertain to Him, “will take what is mine and show it to you” as you are able to bear. (John 16.12-15)
This is His body broken for us into bite size pieces for human consumption to feed the mind, soul and spirit, to become the accumulative of all truths that are embodied into the Truth, Jesus Christ not dressed in flesh but something much greater. As you have received from Him, put Him on. Now, not at a second coming. The transformation is now to those who hear what the spirit says. The baptism of putting off the flesh and the putting on the new man is now, not at a second coming. If we remain ignorant of these spiritual truths we are surely in no better shape then the Jews who thought the same thing. They were waiting for the kingdom to appear.
 
Hebrews 2 “ Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away. 2 For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just reward, 3 how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? (of a current reality not a future promise, ) 
He is not just a manifestation or a revelation or an epiphany like an event of a second coming but a life style. If we take this back to the old testament we see many appearings, usually in dreams and visions and by the word. He appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob multiple times. Gen 12.7, 17.1,18.1,26.2,35.9, And of Moses Ex 3.16,. And the Glory of the Lord appeared in a cloud and a pillar of fire and in the tabernacle, in Shiloh, and to Solomon 2 times. What about the prophets who were taken “in visions of God”? We can go on and on. Of Paul who was stuck by a great light. Peter who was instructed to eat meat when the sheet was let down for him. I mean why must we put it all off when He is right here right now in His natural make up and composition with His natural habitat. The transformation, the Exodus and experiencing Him is right now.
 
John 14.2121 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”
 
His Kingdom is at hand as always.

Transformed by the face of God.

1 John 3 New King James Version (NKJV)

3 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God![a] Therefore the world does not know us,[b] because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure”.

 

Now we are His children, not of a carnal nature which is why “the world does not know us”. For as it neither sees, or knows Him, we being in Him, or “in Christ” are like Him now. This is why the world cannot see us. They see our man but that is not us in Gods eye. “for even the angels in heaven see the face of the Father in these little ones. Carnal man cannot.

 

So when we see Him as He is, we shall be like Him. Well when does this Happen? At the illusive 2nd coming? If the world does not know us as scripture just said, what is this “us” they do not know?. I mean I go to work, I shop and get gas. I have neighbors and friends but “the world does not know us? 

 

That is right. That part of us that is new is like Him and the world cannot see Him and that part of us that is like Him is also unseen by them because we are “a new creation”, and this “new creation” is what we put on when we see Him. And just as the world does not see Him so they cannot become Him, we do see Him, and to the degree that we do see Him, not with carnal eyes, we having eyes to see and ears to hear, these are gifts and components of the “new creation” not being flesh and bone of our Adamic nature. His gift to us is Himself, this is what we become.

 

It is the Adamic nature that wants to see Him in bodily form. The one who was on the cross, they would like to put their fingers in the nail prints, then they will believe for “they think they will see Him as He is, but that is a false Jesus. So you who have that silly notion? This is not for you. For if you say that you see Him and you see that, your sin will remain. Not the sins of the product of your man, but the sin of unbelief. That is the parent sin.

 

1st John 3.  6 Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins (un-believes) has neither seen Him nor known Him.

 

And we see Him even now in this age as He is but not with our man. He is now in His Glorified true state of eternal existence, the same yesterday, today and forever. He is not of the Adamic nature of the dust of the earth. “For the Lord is not a man that He should relent”. And we see Him how? With our physical eyes? No! This is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear even us whom the world cannot see. 

 

John 14. And Philip said “Lord show us the father and that will be sufficient for us”. Jesus said ” Have I been with you this long and you still do not know me? He who has seen me has seen the Father”. 

 

And this is not a physicality like a winged creature or an orb or a visible light. No, much more than that. But we have to stop trying to see Him with our carnal senses. It is the mind of unbelief that needs proof in the world, but scripture says “Whom the world does not know”. So then as Paul prayed in Ephesians 1.18 “that the eyes of your understanding being enlightened”. This is how we know Him and see Him. 

 

So for us to see Him as He is does not take place at some second coming of Christ when the body is dead for if you are “in Him’, that already happened by faith at baptism.

1st John 3.3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

This purification is not a religious edict that creates monks living in monasteries avoiding the things they are afraid of but takes place inside by dealing with traditions and religious garb that clogs our thinking and our ability to “see him (now) as He is. Like the concept of Christ coming a second time to do something for you He hasn’t already done. “For you are complete in Him who is the head of all power and principality. And “He has given us everything that pertains to life and god-likeness through the knowledge of Him who calls us by glory and virtue”. (2nd Peter 1.3) So those who look for Christ to complete His work at an illusive 2nd coming so they can become like Him, are looking for something they already have, or I mean they could have if they did not abide in the sin of un-beleif. Like we read here…

 

John 3.6 Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.

 

So as we see Him we shall be like Him, we see Him, we know Him, we put Him on. And this is much more than just putting on the armor of God like in Ephesians 6 which cloaks us from the world,, but we put on inner workings of God, His very anatomy, and we are renewed in the spirit, mind, heart and soul. Our invisibleness.

 

And this all takes place where? In front of the mirror.

 

2nd Corinthians 3.18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

You thought I was making this up. It is not at the second coming beyond a supposed rapture that you are transformed. That belief is a form of denying Christ. 

The word “transform” come from the Greek “metamorphosis” and is used twice in scripture. At Christs transfiguration and our transfiguration in the mirror, as we just read. I don’t think the author (God) meant to separate this as being different. Meaning as Christ was transfigured or metamorphosed we too do the same. Where? In the here and now in the mirror of His word by His Spirit, “because as He is so are we in the world” (1st John 4.14) This is for us who believe. We have been quickened and we have been seated. You just need to learn to believe and put it on. This is about those of us whom the “world cannot see”.

 

2nd Corinthians 4.3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. 6 For it is God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

You get that? This face whom no man can see and live can see is seen “In the face of Jesus Christ”. Who said “he who has seen me has seen the Father” Meaning not a man with long hair dressed in a fitted sheet and sandles, but “he who has seen me” sees the invisible working of God” We see His anatomy and His invisible works with “unveiled face beholding (seeing) the Glory of the Lord (as He is) are being transformed from the glory to the glory. We see God in the face of Christ and are transformed into them, God and Christ by the Spirit. We are in Them, They are in us We are one in Them in Glory. This is our transfiguration. Not into a new carnality, but from the Glory to the Glory. And as the disciples said “Lord it is good for us to be here, let us make an altar here for you Moses and Elijah. There are no physical structures here for they all detain.

We turn into what we behold. If Jesus has to finish something for us at a second coming then He is not done. If He is not done, He is not Glorified. If He is not Glorified we cannot share in His glory till He is. If he is not glorified we cannot “behold the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” and there is no transformation apart from the glory that is why it is “from glory to glory” or “from the glory to the Glory, you become glorious through this transformation. If not you are still in your sins. You are blinded by the God of this age who would love to detain you. The transfiguration is in the here and now. We see Him as He truly is. We see Him face to face but not a carnal face. We want to transform from what we were to what He is. As Paul says that we don’t want to be found naked, (like those who wait), but to be further clothed in immortality. To Lay hold of why Christ laid hold of us. Eternal glory.

For we are not seen hiding ourselves with clothes of fabric or cloaked with degrees and diplomas of this age but clothed with the righteousness of Christ. Unlike the Levites who kept the temple, were clothed in a pure white that radiated, only having a form of holiness, we are clothed not in a white of radiance but the clear/ invisible to the carnal eye righteousness of Christ. We are clothed in Him because we see Him as He is only because we are in Him, we see Him as He is because we see from the inside out.

Romans 8.28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. Where are you in this process? Are you waiting for the man Jesus to come and do this for you?

 

The Kingdom of God is at hand.

 

Repetitious patterns and cycles

Download PDF

We mentioned in previous articles that the purpose of the church,  meaning “the called out ones, is the same purpose as the general assemble or festive gathering of the Israelite’s. It is to learn and apply, or put on the truths practiced through the repetitious patterns and cycles, which are designed to bring us to a full knowledge of Christ.. “Till we all reach the full stature of the son of God”

 

The repetitious patterns and cycles are the acts and the observances that can become redundant and un-profitable, like the Sabbath, the Passover, baptism, and so on, these are the things we do to understand eternal realities. Israel did the feasts and all the hoopla that went along with it and lost sight of the fact they were doing those things to learn truths about the Kingdom they were called to. They thought doing them pleased God but they learned nothing.

They were still waiting for the King man Jesus to come to Jerusalem. They had their own form of eschatology and Christ rejected any notion of being crowned on earth stating “my kingdom is not from here, if it was I would call a band of legions and they would fight.
The whole gospel message is for us to return to the Father, not Him to come here. He already did that so that…. “The hour is coming and now is when you will no longer worship in Jerusalem, for God is spirit and He is truth and He seeks such to worship Him.  Jesus said “follow me that where I am you may be also” And He prayed “that they may be one as You Father are in Me, and I in You, that they may be one in Us”. And  “I am no longer in the world but these are in the world, keep in Your name those whom you have given me that they may be one as we are one”. And “Father, I desire  that they whom you have given Me may be where I am, that they may behold My glory”.
You have to start confessing and believing these truths to realize them. His precious blood didn’t buy us a ticket at a bus stop to depart for a kingdom some 2000 years later. We are not waiting for Him to come and help us, He did that. He has given us everything that pertains to life and godlikeness by these precious promises having already delivered us from the corruption that is in the world. We have been quickened, translated and seated next to Him. And if these words are from the scriptures they are more true than all the earthly facts. Facts and dates are enmity against God. He is not in a time capsule, the old man is. But there are portholes.
 
Our Transfiguration and looking at the face of God in the mirror of the spirit
We all with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror are being transfigured into the same full image (unless our mind sees Jesus a mere man) from glory to glory by the spirit of God. He is God who commanded light to shine out of darkness who has shone in our hearts to bring to light the Glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”.(can you see Him?)” He who has seen Me has seen the father”
This all happens in the here and now. Our transformation is the process of knowing Him, NOW. We see Him as He is and we become like Him, now, TODAY if you will hear His voice. 
 
To put all this off till a second coming stops Him from working in us. We reject His Holy Spirit, our mirror. (Wis of Solomon 7.26 and 2 Cor 3.18) for our old man is dead symbolized by the repetitious pattern of baptism, and when we come up it symbolizes being resurrected now, today, not at some rapture. This is the main teaching in Romans. And if we are raised and a new creation then we have eyes to see and ears to hear. We can see the true light. Not the sun but the light that shines into the heart of every man. The baptisms and Lords supper and the Sabbath  are the repetitious patterns that are designed to take us to the Father as Paul pleaded. “Be ye reconciled!” Are the patterns working at your church?
 
Dressing the part, putting on Christ
 
Having put off the old man by faith,we are to put on Christ by faith. Meaning more than just the armor of God. If we do not accept His gifts and put them on we shall be found naked. But i want to continue being swallowed by immortality as I grow in Him.
Do not wait for a second coming. That is a faithless act. We put on His righteousness like new flesh. His bones are truths. We are bone of His bone, flesh of His flesh, now by faith. His words are Immovable un-shakeable, more solid than granite or any other earthly composition. That is what He is and as We see Him like this we see Him as He is and we become like Him.in the spirit of our mind.You don’t keep the flesh any way  Jn 3.2 beloved now we are the children of God, as He is revealed in the spirit of our mind, we see Him as He is for we shall be like Him. When? When we wake up to these truths. Isaiah 52 Awake, Awake! Put on your strength, put on your beautiful garments, shake yourself from the dust of the earth”. 
These gifts are activated by faith. As you see them, you accept them, you become them. This is the transfiguration, your transfiguration, to see Him as in a mirror seeing “the Glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ, you see God face to face, but not with the carnal eye.
So what is Gods heart about fruitless repetitions we do in His name?
“To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices. I have had enough burnt offerings, Why do you trample my courts? Your new moons and feasts My soul hates. They are trouble to me, I am weary of them”.Isaiah 1.10-15.   They were just repetitious cycles with no transformation.
Israel was judged for not understanding this. If church does not facilitate this they have left their calling. They are not entering nor allowing those who are trying to do so. “In vain they worship Me with their lips but teach my commands as doctrine of men”.
Walking with God, following His voice
Walking by faith is like walking backwards following the voice of God. Abraham went out not knowing where he was going, and this was accounted as faith. (Heb 11.8). When we enter the Kingdom we can only describe where we’ve been. Like a kid looking out the back window of a car ride. Dad knows where He’s going. I can explain them to you but you have to confess these things and start walking backwards. It is easier to wait for a second coming but one has to ignore the voice.
B.T.W. the term second coming is not found once in scripture. I am not saying He is not coming. I am saying He is coming now. In the 1st, 2nd and 3rd watch. And His reward is with Him to give to each according to their faith. Behold I stand at the door and knock. If you sup with Me and eat my flesh and drink my blood you will become like Me. My body was broken down in small portions for you to spiritually digest. My words are spirit and they are life. 
 
When the Lord speaks, Let there be light, did it take 2000 years? When He said “rise! take up your bed and walk” or “Lazarus come forth” did He not walk, did he not rise immediately?
We have to believe His word or our whole walk is for not. Heb 12.25 see then that you do not refuse Him who speaks from heaven, for if they did not escape who refused him who spoke on earth, how much more shall we not escape. Let us not reject such a great salvation. The Exodus is in full swing. The Kingdom of God is preached and men are forcing their way in.
John in the book of Revelation had discourse with an angel He supposed to br Christ. As John started to bow before this one He was stopped by the angel who said “see that you don’t do that, For I am jsut one of your brothers of those who keep the testimony of Jesus Christ”
This one looked like Christ but was not Him but was in all appearances like Christ, but not because of a beard and saddles, but heavenly attire. The question is, How was this one able to put on christ before a so called rapture and second coming? I mean he is totally out of order.
The Kingdom of God is at hand.

7/20/14 Gods perfect will

1st Corinthians 13.12b We know in part and we see in part, but when that which is perfect has come that which is in part will be done away with.  Learn what the perfect is.

 
Rom 12.2 that you may know what Gods good acceptable and perfect will is. And when you know it, you are no longer subject to guardians and tutors of that which is in part. You are no longer held captive to the elements that are bound by days, months , seasons and years. Galatians 3.9-11
 
He who we understand by performing the cycles associated with time and matter, being the Sabbath and all the feasts, have a purpose, and we have a destiny and a goal by serving those tasks. For even the law was given for repetitions to accommodate those who are waking up.
 
The waking up is one of the first effects that one experiences in a spiritual sense. By walking through the cycles that leave an imprint of the one who is invisible, the one who in no other way would be seen or known. It is in this way the cycles are the vehicle for true transformation when you see Christ in them. “Behold I have come in the volume of the book, it is written of Me” You learn to see the one of whom the cycles are about. The law and the prophets reveal the anatomy of God.
 
Ezekiel calls them “wheels within wheels that are dreadfully high”. It is also referred to in the holy writ by Jacob as a “ladder to heaven”. And as much as these men try to describe what they saw, not with human eyes but “the eyes of understanding”, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. They were trying to describe something that is invisible but “like”. However this invisible they experienced was indelibly etched on their soul leaving an imprint or a “likeness” on their hearts and minds.
 
But these things cannot be carnally apprehended for the carnal mind is enmity against God. For the carnal rejects Gods invisible-ness by making Him visible like them. They make God a man like themselves, in their mind.
 
Those of this sort claim to know God but deny His power to save in the here and now. Not just the saving for putting them on ice waiting for the second coming but the power of God unto salvation to all who believe. (Rom 1.17 ) They theorize how the word of God must once again be manifest in the flesh for the second coming of Jesus Christ. They are looking for a distant coming Christ to reign on earth as a man. This is the wrong Jesus.
 
Paul the apostle wrote precisely of this in Romans 1 saying ” although they knew God, (or had the things of God for their knowing) they glorified Him not as God, nor were they thankful. They became futile in their thoughts and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise they became fools, (and their crime) “They changed the glory of an incorruptible (invisible) God into an image of a man. (to be seen physically)
 
Oh what a blunder they have committed. By doing so they reject the truth of God seen in Jesus Christ. Not His human body, for no description of Him was left, but the actions seen by Him. Not knowing this they promote a delusion. By ignoring Gods invisible power and attributes, Him being forever eternal, immortal and invisible in His true nature. They construct the image of a man in the minds of their students of a Jesus with long hair, a beard, a robe and sandals returning to planet earth to save them. What a blasphemous notion condemned even in the 10 commandments. Thou shall not make any graven image in any likeness of anything in heaven. You shall not bow down and worship them. No pictures portraits or drawings. Period.
 
Why was that command given? Because anything that gives the illusion that God is an elemental  creature, blocks the person from receiving the imprint in the mind and soul of the true worshiper, follower and obtain-er of “the knowledge of God in the face of Jesus Christ” who by the correct imprint is their self transfigured into the same full image by the spirit to the Glory. 2 Cor 3.18.
 
Paul was the apostle who was born out of time. The requirements of an apostle is that they had to have seen the Lord. But Paul saw Him not with human eyes but a blinding light that shown from the eternal, and the voice that accompanied it. So having seen God, not with carnal eyes for he was blinded but learned to see Him who is high and lifted up. He saw with the renewed mind something much greater than the eye can see as said in here in 1st Timothy 6.16 of Jesus Christ “who alone has immortality dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see”. At least not with human eyes. 
 
Paul then having been picked by Jesus Christ coming to Him in His eternal Glory, him seeing not a man but the true Christ in His resurrected ascended eternal existence of who He always was, he became qualified to be the 12th disciple, having the heavenly site indelibly etched on the hard drive of his mind, for Paul did not see the man Jesus. And this is what Paul taught, We knew Christ according to the flesh, but hence forth know we Him that way no more” 2 Cor 5.16
Even Peter said that “we made known to you the power and the coming of the Lord”. Meaning a 2nd coming?  No.  But  “we were eye witnesses of His majesty”.  He witnessed what you are looking for in a 2nd coming.
 
So it is not an earthly image of a man that was left for us to know Him, but His word. It is of this that Jesus Christ attested to in John 17 saying “I have manifest your name and your word and they have kept them. Saying ” I am no longer in the world but these are, keep them in your name that they may be one as we are one. Take them not out of the world but keep them from evil. I pray not for just these here but those who are to come (us) that they also may be one in Us. As you Father are in Me and I in You, that they also may be made perfect in one in Us that the world may believe!” (vs 21) 
 
This is a promise spoken to them and to us not of a future event but now! “that the world may know”. The same mouth who said let there be light, and there was light, spoke not these words in vain. Where does a 2000 year interlude enter into any of His words. The kingdom of God is now!  And He goes on to say “Father, I desire that they also whom You have given Me may be with Me where I am , that they may behold My Glory which you have given Me for you have loved Me from the foundations of the world.
To this I say, there is no transformation without seeing His transformation, His Glory, not of a future event but an eternal reality. We are now being transformed into His self same image, perfection, from Glory to Glory. Glory is the power that transforms. If you are stagnant in your faith, receive His words that where He is you may be now! If you believe that His Glory is future, you are missing out of the gift of God “In Christ” Which is to be with Him where He is beholding His Glory.
 
You see Jesus Christ brought the Kingdom with Him from the beginning. For He is the Kingdom. He said these words. “The Kingdom of God is at hand”. Then He spent the rest of His time on planet earth showing that, defining that, showing away for us to escape and be one in Him with Him and the Father in the Spirit.
Follow Me that where I am you may be also. That is… to be In Christ. John 17.7 all things are given to the Son, past present and future. All eternal things are In Christ and the eternal things are not subject to time and events. 
The message saying “The Kingdom of God is at hand” was never retracted as though it left to come a  2nd time in the flesh. Were not the Jews expecting a visible Kingdom?  What was their demise?
 
1st John 5.20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.  (this is the Kingdom)

21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
