We speak for the Glory of God to be revealed

Romans 8.27 For what shall separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus neither height nor depth nor principalities or powers nor any other creative things shall separate us from the love of God.
   It is the obstacles that we face in our life that are presented to us for the glory of God to be revealed. Even as Christ had said with Lazarus when asked why he remained dead for 4 days. Christ said to his disciples “didn’t I tell you that if you only believe you would see the glory of God?” Many of the obstacles or seeming contradictions faced by Christ in the scriptures was met with his words that “this is happened for the glory of God, for the glory of God to be revealed”. It was that He spoke a word and the word which He spoke became the thing that he said. In this way he showed that He was the Son of the Father by doing deeds of the Father. It was the glory of God manifest through His Word and it Glorified the Father to be imitated. Like it is said to us “the Father is glorified in that you bear much fruit” like the only begotten we image our selves like.
 As Christ spoke to the obstacles, weather it was death or principalities or powers or things present or things to come, Christ spoke a word and the obstacle became beat like pulp and became like chaff in the wind. So for us too. We meet these obstacles in our life head on with the word. Like Christ said at His temptation “for it is written…” In this He showed for us the way. And He passed this on to us with His discourse to the disciples saying” ask anything in My name and the Father will do it”. and as we speak it is in that we bear much fruit that the father is glorified and our glorification is to be able to speak a word, and the thing become the thing that we said like God Himself does. This is the shared glory of God given to us in Jesus Christ, to us, the elect of God who are “called chosen and faithful” being sanctified and “ready for every good work”. And the only good work is a God work in the only work God does is word. So the obstacles we encounter is our moment for our glory through adoption in Christ to shine forth the reflecting our likeness of our Father. To speak a thing and it comes into being. Praise God hallelujah amen.
This is how we show our selves as the fullness of the stature of the Son of God to a perfect man just like Jesus spoke and the thing became to be. We likewise speak and a thing becomes to be. This is a perfected saint. A mature saint who can do the things the Son did. As he said that”as He is so are we in this world”. And if we are mature, we are word. And our words become the things we say. In this way we prove ourselves to be “a kind of fruit of his creation it”. It is to our glory and to His glory, a reciprocating glory, that we mutually participate in His glory now.
You shall be judged by every word you say? This is usually seen as a future event of judgement at a specific point in time but it’s not. It is because we are made in the image of God that even as Isaiah spoke that we dwell in the land of unclean lips. To the degree that you speak forth falsehood, stifles your ability to speak forth things into being. Even as it says in the Book of James that “a perfect man can bridle his mouth”? This becomes Christ in us. The gift from the Father to be joint heirs with Christ. To that degree we are able to speak a thing to be. And if we are not good stewards with what is our own,, who is going to give us another? So then this is the purpose for our sanctification. For us to speak a thing to be, and it becomes a fact is directly related to how clean our heart is. This is why “to the pure all things are pure” for that is what they speak and creation mirrors that back to them. But to those who are defiled? They see gloominess and darkness because that is their view of the world, the mirroring of creation back to them. It is the lying speaking slandering murmuring that breaks you from this gift. For “it is not what goes in a man that the defiles a man but it is what comes out of a man that defines a man for it is out of the heart that defiles a man because from there proceeds murders”. And this is what that scripture means. If we honor God in truth in all that we do regardless of how it may or may not affect us or benefit us, that we do not lie for personal gain, to this one the person will be gifted with the Word of God. As it is written “be ye Holy as I am Holy”. So dealing with truth and honesty with our neighbors and community is key.
 2nd Corinthians 7:1 says to purify ourselves from all filthiness of flesh and spirit perfecting holiness in the fear of God”. And this is what we do. To the degree that we know and understand and speak truthfully is to the degree that we receive. Even as Paul said “I reach out to lay hold of white Christ laid hold of me” and “walk to the degree that you have attained” so to put on truth is to put on another attribute of God seen in Christ.

Deeds of the Father

We all have a surname and they are usually passed on to us by our fathers. In times past it was also the trade or business of the father that was his name too. With names like Gardner Baker Smith Shoemacker and such. It was common that a son took over the Fathers business. The name was what they did.

 

It is from the first father Adam that we work in the” sweat of our face”. We do physically exertive tasks and spend physical energy for a ways and means. But there is a better way and it is called “the works of our Heavenly  Father”. This is what Jesus did saying that he “came and did the works no man can do” being word, speaking a thing and it coming to be. This is what is given to us saints. We work with words too. We call a thing that was previously dark and murky and it is set in order by the things that we say. Like “Let there be light”.

 

Christ said “I do the deeds of my Father” which is word. By this He showed that He was the new creation and the Son of God . He did not work on the “sweat of his face” which was inherited through Adam. Gods works are word and our conversion,  or better yet our transfiguration, and is a product of what He Said “from the beginning” and not an end time reality some call “the second comin”.  This Word spoken  is spoken in every generation of this creation through the agency of the gospel to which I am appointed.

 

In this way we show who our father is being the fallen nature of Adam or,,, the redeemed man in the image of Christ being re image by Him for He is the word of God. And Christ said to us “In this the Father is glorified that you bear much fruit” and ” Whatever you ask the Father (using words) in my name that He will do”. It is to the Glory of God the Father that your word bears fruit for in this age as the proof that you are one of His and share in His Glory now. And it is Christ who “brings many sons to Glory ” who shares His very Glory with us to be glorified with Him in the here and now being “seated in heavenly places, in “the Kingdom of God at hand” being at your fingertips. We join “the spirits of just men made perfect”  And if we accept this invitation and strive for this calling by participating in sanctification, then we receive the full gift as a work of word and spirit.

 

John the baptizer said “there is one coming after me and He will baptize you with fire”. Sanctification is that fire that purifies and makes Holy and burns away the dross of this age so you too can say of the God of this age that “he has nothing in me”. This is “For those who come to the light to clearly see that whats required by them are done in God”. John 3.21

 

This is a totally foreign concept to someone who is looking to be raptured and rescued by another Jesus. But even Paul said that he “strives to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of him”. This is it and this is the “upward call of God in Christ” that we strive for now. This is not a 2nd coming reward for those holding on to their old Adamic nature by their fingernails saying “Jesus save me”

 

For us who are “living stones” the proverbial saying of ” chip of the old block” applies here. We are joined “in Christ” who is the Chief cornerstone. It is He who determines all the angles, the foundation being the 12 apostles on which we stand. And this is how we participate in Gods Kingdom now. Through the gospel.

 

Like it says in scripture that “man was made in the image and likeness of God”. Yes in design and function for the redeemed, sanctified by the Holy Spirit born of Word, and restored to that which is from the beginning where it is said of creation that “it is good, very good”, so we do.  For those of us who have a new name, we do the deeds of our father with that name.  His name is our name, his deeds are our deeds, we work like Him in His image and His likeness, in His design and function being just like Him. This is what  it means to be in Christ.  This is what Jesus was teaching when He said “go tell the disciples that I have ascended to my God and your God and to My Father and your Father”. So we tell you. And as Paul said “be ye reconciled to the Father” This is that. In word and deed. This is why “your shall be judged by every word that proceeds from your mouth.

“If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, you can ask for anything you want and it shall be done for you”. If we do this the power of God displayed in the resurrection of Christ abIdes in us too.

In light of this examine your works and sdk yourself. Who is your father?

Jacobs Ladder Pt 1, steps to the Kingdom

Most people believe that all Scripture has equal relevance. Some see a difference between the  Old Testament and the New Testament. Some presume the Gospels to be part of the Old Testament for the blood was not yet shed, but it was Christ who said that “upon Me you shall see the angels of God ascending and descending upon”  equating himself with Jacob’s Ladder at Bethel which means the house of God being the Kingdom of God.  Christ being the Word of God being also in human form bringing with Him the Kingdom of God in God from. This is the Word that all revelation travels upon and it is Him in word form absorbed by us that are “the keys to the Kingdom.”
    When Paul was stuck by a blinding light from heaven he was told “‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. Rise and stand on your 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.  Here it shown that Christ’s revelations and comings are progressive and continual and not 1st and 2nd comings.
  So here is the truth we must recognize, that all Scripture is not equal. There are various stages in various phases which is why it’s like angels on a ladder. Like Paul who strived to lay a hold of godliness also saying “to the degree that you have attained so walk ye in it”.  And Christ who said that John the baptist was the spirit of Elijah if you are able to receive it.
   So this all makes sense so far but how does this affect our walk? Well if we see all Scripture as equal relevance, we may miss the order in which we climb up the ladder which is a metaphor for us growing up into Him who is the head, into the full stature of the Son of God and a Co heir with Christ.   It is He who said “follow me that where I am you may be also” who also says if you serve Him you do what he says. That’s what his servant does, follows him that where he is he may be also. This is our journey and pilgrimage.
   So we have the blessedness of the anatomy of God in the Scriptures before us in varying degrees in books to be consumed by our understanding for our individual transfiguration. The top of most of these books are the writings of John. He specifically addresses the “overcomer”. But it is Paul who through his various letters is seen in degrees and in different stages as he strives to attain what John describes.
.
   In 1st Corinthians 15 Paul says that Christ must reign till he puts all enemies under his feet and then God will be all in all but then in Ephesians he says that has already happened saying that Christ came for God to be all in all, that “all things have been put under His feet” and His body the eklisia, fill everything every where.
   In Paul’s own admission in Ephesians 3.3 this was a new revelation. He had not yet attained in strove do attain why Christ laid hold of him, indicating that something was attainable “to the fullness of the stature of Christ and a son, or replica of God. And that had nothing to do with a rapture or an end time scenario. That there was something he could attain in Christ, even as he said in Ephesians that we are given apostles and prophets till we all come to a full status to a full measure in the image of Christ. And it is the gospel that does all this and not after we die or a 2nd coming.
  It is from the book of Romans that has the importance of conveying to the born-again mind that the resurrection is a spiritual thing and it is a done deal.  Paul then on the other hand gets to the concept of creation and still sees the need for redemption saying that the whole earth groans and travails waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God.
 To many and maybe even to Paul where he was at in his stages, this is seen as some kind of event that happens at a second coming and if that’s the case then Jesus Christ is not yet the savior of the world and must come again as though the works were not finished and there are very many who hold on to that view do you?
   So to those who hold on to the view that all Scripture has equal relevance to them they generally use lesser scriptures to negate more important ones and deny the very access to the kingdom of God that they are entitled to. Did not the Christ say that he had given us the keys to the kingdom?  That it is  good the father’s good pleasure to grant you access to the Kingdom, that the kingdom of God is at hand? And not still being made to appear for another Jesus coming to save planet earth?
   1 John 4.14 we have seen and testify that God has sent His Son as savior of the world.
   So the one who says “come up hither” in Revelation 4, to those who suppose that to mean a rapture, is the same one who said in John 15 “arise let us go up from here” it is He who says these things over and over in parabolic form for us to arise in spirit and in truth to the very place that He is. This is called the kingdom of God and this is why the kingdom of God is always at hand and not a one time public offering called “the second coming” a Jesus to establish himself on planet Earth as a soon coming king. Wasn’t He born king?
   So the new man is not a one time event called a Rapture but in degrees of revelations as we put on Christ each in their own order happening ” in the twinkling of an eye” unnoticeable to human perceptions, till we all, each individually arise to the full stature of the Son of God like Christ as we put on the invisible attributes of God “seen in the face of Jesus Christ “.
Amen. So be it.

Calling things to be

Animals were given acute senses which Adam had before the fall. When he called and named the animals he placed upon them features of his own. They were given to interact with him, he was the one with dominion over all, and he placed upon them small likenesses of himself much like Christ does to those who receive Him in this age. Adam gave physicalities he could relate to and invisible ones too. Like an eagles eye, or the memory if an elephant. Like birds and fish with the tremendous ability to navigate the sky’s and sea’s.
Adam could only call a thing that he had in himself. It was after the fall that animals were tainted by reflecting mans new fallen nature. A dog senses a wicked person and so all creatures display a fear and skepticism toward man like man does God.
But pertaining to the new heaven and earth?  It does not go into its own personal metamorphosis to become new but just reflects the nature of the man. When the man is renewed by the spirit of God, creation itself responds in a new way.  That is why Paul said “to the pure all is pure” and “all things become new.  Old things pass away, all things become new”. And creation is renewed by the work of the Christ of the cross. His blood was spilt upon the earth too. This is why He is the propitiation for the whole world.  1st John 2
 The words of scripture are “God sent His son into the world not to condemn it but that through Him the world would be saved”. And it is, for the redeemed born again man “in Christ”.  It is to that person that the creation is restored to the beginning when God said of His creation that “it is good, very good”. For God Himself gave to His creation a reflection of His character through contrasts. God divided light and dark, but in Him is no darkness at all”.  It is the fallen man who is on a state of being judged that creation groans with.
We see in Moses and the exodus, which pictures  baptism into the spirit. Their enemies experienced death in the red sea while the Israelites experienced life by the same method.  For them like for us the only enemy left is unbelief and fear. But It was because they were using their old Adamic nature that their works seen “of the sweat of your face” that yielded curses. They had a blank tapestry called a desert to learn to do the works of the Spirit and express by faith to “go out with joy, be led forth with peace,  the mountains and the hills will break forth into singing, all the leaves of the fields will clap their hands”, but they would have none of it. They could have painted that desert with the word of faith. Instead of doing the works of God the Father of Spirits. Like with speaking to the rock to burst forth living waters, it became the work of their old Adamic nature. They smote the rock with a stick and received their just reward. They physically died in the wilderness. Time after time they chose their lower human nature and rejected the Holy Spirit.
 It was their baron hardened  heart being desolate that was portrayed in creation for them. That is to say that the things visible portrayed thier invisible inside self, being a baron lifeless desert called Kadesh Barnia. That was their moment, their hour and time of visitation to receive the things of God by the way that they spoke and not by their religious observances. “So be it according to your faith “. For them it was. Baron, desert, faithless life without the spirit.
But of the New Covenant being the new way and the new life and a fresh start for those who overcome, who have ears to hear and do the works of their heavenly Father that says “you shall go out with joy and led forth with peace.  The mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing all the leaves and trees shall clap their hands” by what they speak into existence.  But those with Moses knew it not. That is why the clusters of grapes that were shown to the Hebrews by Joshua and Caleb. This they rejected the same way and we’re sentenced to 40 years hard labor. It was later that Joshua led a new generation into the promise land. And they started that journey how? By shouting to the walls of Jericho, being an act of faith of something they said.
   All the people participated in this battle. How? By what came out of their mouth.
  Here  is something we need to understand . Creation only mirrors. The physical promised land  and only portrays the eternal invisible promises of spirit and truth. Or when Joshua divided up the promise land, the promises of God would have culminated and ceased then, and that is what each believer would inherit too. A piece of dirt beyond the Jordan river and that is all.  If people only knew what they were really fighting for over there. Dirt. Dirt is temporary but Gods word, His promise and His land is eternal.
   And we get all the promises of God for the promise of God is eternal life and not something that fades and erodes “for all the promises of God are yes and amen”. Dirt cannot be the fulfillment of the promise but the here and now is subjected to the eternal words of God displayed in Christ for our training and transformation . All things have their fulfillment in the Christ of the cross, and He is the promise land because our inheritance is in Christ, the savior of the world. And that is what He did. Of Him it is said “that he comes and His reward is with Him being Him and not a silly piece of dirt defined as Israel or Jerusalem. “For the hour is coming and now is when you will not in Jerusalem worship the Father but in Spirit and truth”. So that is what we do.
  For this reason scripture says that “heavenly Jerusalem comes down from God in heaven”. Gods city has nothing to do with real estate, dirt,  or planet earth. It is Heavenly, holy and out of this world, a timeless reality “prepared from the foundations of the world.
   It is Adamites that get dirt.  He returns to dirt when he dies but of those born from above we get spirit when we live which is the moment you believe and has nothing to do with physical death.
  When you were born of man you were born dead to the spirit.  But we are born from above from our Heavenly Mother which is Heavenly Jerusalem, (Galatians 4.26)born of spirit and inherit that. And it is the re spirited  man who has the same dominion as Adam had before the fall when God said of all creation  that “it is good, very good”. And he did it while he occupied a body form the dust of the earth. So we can too.
And this is the same as the man Christ Jesus, to transform, to call or name a thing. And how do we do this? The same way He did. By word. Like they did. We believe there for we speak. We too can do the works of the Father if we too have been trained in righteousness and put on Christ our new man that replaces the Adamic. Instead of sweating, we speak. This is the “greater works shall you do because I go to the Father “. We do greater works than the man Jesus. He spoke didn’t He?
So scripture says we have “faith to move mountains? If we have the faith of a mustard seed we do, this and more. This becomes our work.
Faith is invisible character. Gods character, in His Son, gifted to us. He is our new character. This is passed on by the gospel. We receive His word, His Son. This is written on our invisible part and not on parchment or paper. This is Gods invisible DNA, His attributes active in us for “God has given us everything that pertains to life and god like ness through the knowledge of Him who calls us to glory by virtues”. And it is these virtues given to us in His word saying that “we are partakers of the divine nature now, being God Himself, having escaped the corruption that is in the world” now if we believe scripture. This becomes us the moment we believe. And this is our present access into the Kingdom, now. ( 2 Peter 1.10+)
   There are many who wait for a 2nd coming Jesus to make them divine? They forfeit their heavenly calling, and their earthen transformation,  their transfiguration to be heavenly and holy and divine in the here now. Scripture calls this “putting on Christ”
  Isn’t this why we are called saints? Why we are called the offspring of God?  Referring to the invisible attributes from God active in us? “As you have received of Christ,  walk ye in it”! And, to the degree that you have received, walk ye in it.
This is our salvation which sanctifies the man of dirt for noble purposes but the man returns to the dirt. Dust to dust. (2 Corinthians 5) and 1 Co 15 saying “sown corruptible, raised incorruptible. Peter and Paul talk of “putting off the body”. But our vessel has noble cause but no eternal value. So in the same way you can move mountains, drag your old man around as dead to its old ways.
   So how big is your faith? Our faith comprises of the characteristics of God active in us that we have put on being the things seen on the mountain (the law, feasts and prophets) and made more clear by revelations and unveilings of the person of Jesus Christ by His Word.  This is what we put on to become more godly. like when we dress in the morning in front of a mirror but what we put on are Gods invisible characters and qualities. This is our new man, this is godliness, god-like-ness, that creation responds to in a new way.  The word is our mirror to become and remember what manner of new man that we are as made in His image.
  This is us putting on Christ one attribute at a time. His invisible attire come down like manna from heaven being spread out over the eons through the gospel in word form and repeated by the faithful.
  When you were instructed to put on the whole armor of God, what part of that did you get out of your closet? What part did you buy from the store? We are told to put on love and patience and trust of God. Why is it some think godliness to be a new physicality to be carnally observed by a end time second coming Jesus?
  The Kingdom of God is at hand.
