Redemption in 3 parts, Provisions

Download PDF
     God the Father upon completing creation at the end of the six-day scripture says  “and God saw everything that he had made and behold it was good, it was very good.  And the evening and the morning were the sixth day”.
      “Good, very good”  is what we have in Christ in understanding the redemption of the world to our selves “for God sent His Son not into the world to condemn the world but that through him the world would be saved” and “we have seen and testify that God has sent His Son savior of the world “. So in the faith it is saved and it is these verses we refer to now that are true for us that “creation is good very good” for those redeemed in Christ. This is our current theme and it is another important principle for us to understand in the work of God in us.
      In Genesis it is also says that “God made every plant of the field before it was in the earth and every herb of the field before it grew, for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth for there was no man to to the ground”.
      Meaning creation in the way that we know it was pre-designed to serve the purpose of man. It is for the man that is imaged in God. You see for “the Lord God had not cause it to rain upon the earth for there was no man to till the ground” That without man there was no need for provisions. That it is necessary for the provision to come forth when man needed and God for – ordained the provision before you recognized that you needed it.
      So this is what we need to understand little flock. That our provisions are there for us at the time that we need them. Think of the manna. “Gather ever day as much as you need, and hold none over for the next day”. That God being our supplier and provider has given us everything that we need at the time that we need it as confirmed in 2 Peter saying that “God has given us everything that pertains to life and god-like-ness”. That if we wait for the provision first, we may not accomplish anything by faith. This is “walking in the spirit” and “following the spirit”.  For seeing the provision is a fact and not of faith. Like Abraham was “called out not knowing where he was going”.
        It is the carnal mind that needs a fact but faith in God is believing the invisible as being more relevant then the visible. For we understand all things are made out of the things that are not so that the things we see come from the invisible (Heb 11)  and this is done how? By word. By every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. So if God said something? That should be sufficient enough for us to take a step forward into the invisible for isn’t that where everything came from anyway? “Let there be light” and it was so?
      This concept of the provision being there by faith when you need, can be compared to the proverbial “hand in the cookie jar”. You have to let go of the cookie to get your hand out of the jar to get something better. You cannot have the cookie anyway but we still hold on to the old things of the old life and wait for the transition to physically appear. This is un-faith for “it is a wicked and adulterous generation that seeks after a sign.  so then what do we do now?
      Well it was Abraham the father of faith who was told by God to go forth into the land saying “as far as you can see from the east to the west and the north and the south see I have given it to you”. Of this Abraham is described by Paul in Romans of being heir of the world, and if Abraham is our Father of faith that we pattern ourselves after, as he should be, then we do the works of our fathers, then we too are heirs of the world as Abraham. (Romans 4.13)
       We talked about this too of Moses who having passed through the Red Sea, being found in the desert, had the opportunity to paint a portrait in the desert with living waters. And of Joshua the Lord said to Joshua “every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you as I said to Moses”. This is the same thing he meant with Abraham and it’s the same thing he means to us for those are heirs “in Christ” from whom are all things and to whom are all things. As Christ said “I have come into the world not to condemn the world but that through Me the world would be saved. And since He was sent the world is saved, restored and redeemed to its original purpose and intent and design for the redeemed, God saying “it is good, very good” for the curse is reversed in Christ. And it’s not that the curse is removed or just neutralized. It is reversed. A curse to a blessing. We are the blessed.
      So it is “in Christ”  through him that we “live and dwell and have our being” that the world is saved to. This is why Paul was able to say “all things have become new old things have passed away”. That now we are the new creation meaning that creation was restored to its original purpose intent and design of serving the redeemed man re-imaged like Christ. That “through Him the world would be saved”, and for us it is and it is perfectly functional in the way as it was designed to be from the beginning of being “good very good”.
  So we can know and understand that it is not only that the trees having been made during the six days of creation that did not grow because there was no man to need them. This is the rule for all of our provisions. We will get what we ask for like James says “you have not because you ask not.
     Now this is where faith comes in. If we understand that creation is redeemed to its original intent and that we are redeemed in Christ to our original intent of blessings and no curse, then we can understand that the original intent is that creation serves us. That we no longer work the earth with the curse as evident by thorns and sweating on our face. You see fallen man was cursed with the working in sweat, but not the earth. So now the redeemed man does the works of Christ who did the works of the Heavenly Father, our Father of glories who begat us to share in His glory which is for us the very character and the essence of who he is having access to the resources of which he is given the abilities of which he has which is speaking word and the word becoming the thing that is said. Wow! Did you get that? To Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than all we could think or ask according to the power that works in us? Amen, for “all the promises of God are yes and amen”. And this is true when? Now!Today! This is what it means that today is the day of salvation”. Being the redemption and restoration of God for us in the here and now and not at a second coming as some suppose.
     What an awesome gift and reward to the one that has this kind of faith, for the words of Christ to be fulfilled in you that says “ask anything in my name and it shall be done”. And” it is to the father’s glory that you bear much fruit”. His Glory is our glory.  Our fruit is not measured by the works of our hand but measured by the words of our mouth for it is said that; we should be judged by every word that we speak? And why would this be so?  It is said that “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” meaning that all have fallen from their purpose of displaying the glory and the likeness of God.  Were we not made him is in His image? As he said; he made man in His image male and female made he them? And it is in this way that the glory is revealed that Him being the Father of glory, that we the redeemed share in the glory, that we participate in his likeness by being word too. That our words being redeemed and restored, that our mind and our thoughts being transformed and that by being given the resurrection by receiving the habitation of His Holy Spirit this is the original intention of creation and this  is the gospel. Any other gospel any other message any other saving any other Savior that stopped short of restoring to you the glory of God being made in His likeness by us being “a kind of first fruit of his creation” in the here and now is incomplete. I Repeat, Any other gospel is only a stop gap measure and a retainer to keep you from the greater gift of God being God himself in the here and now.
     Like as it says in Romans that “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. We were created to reflect His glory. If not we could not be judged for falling short. The second coming gospel keeps you short of the glory for it “seeks another”. But we are redeemed from the fall of man and restored for the glory to work in us. Of us it is said that “God is glorified in that you bear much fruit that the world may know and believe”. Why?  “That the world (unbelieving) may know that you have sent Me”. And Christ said :Father the glory you have given Me I have given them that they may be with Us that the world may know”. Do you believe that word?
      It is for you to  learn to have faith and be restored in purpose and whole soul and body and to the Creator and His creation. Who rules your world? Satan like the 2nd coming gospel says? Or God? My scripture says “the whole earth is filled with the glory of God”. How about you? Do you see your original intent like before the fall, that is reinstated through the gospel?
   The Kingdom of God, as always, is at your fingertips. Being the restoration to full glory, fully glorified for “as He is so are we in this world”. And He is ??? Glorified, seated in full power. All things being subject to Him..  And Us?. For “He who overcomes, I will allow to rule and reign with a rod of iron”. So we do. This is the purpose of the gospel. To bring us “ to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;”. Just like. A duplicate. The second coming doesn’t do this. As Paul said”I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for it is the power of God for salvation”. From start to finish. You can’t add to that. Not even a 2nd coming. “It is finished”. Can you receive this? “To the degree that you have attained, so walk ye in it”.
   Blessings

Redemption in 3 parts, creation.

From Romans 8.19 creation is subject to futility but not willingly for the creation itself eagerly awaits the manifestation of the sons of God. For creation itself is delivered from bondage to the Liberty the sons of God now experience.
In Genesis at the fall when Adam and eve were cursed and creation fell, there was no visible spectacular event with lightning and thunder and quaking but with a word they were sent out and with a word it is redeemed.
  Here we have again another misunderstanding by the Second Coming seekers who expect a carnally spectacular event before they receive redemption. That the redemption of creation and the redemption of the body is a future expectation but it is redeemed by the renewing of our mind with the word. We put off the shackles of bondage and it is in this same way that creation itself is liberated because there is a spiritual polarity shift that takes place “from a curse to a blessing” in which we speak and write about.
 When Christ was crucified He was first crowned with thorns thus signifying the curse on Adam saying of creation “thorns and thistles shall the earth bring forth. It is here in parabolic form that we demonstrate that creation is delivered in Christ in this way for all who believe.
 That the purpose of redemption is to reverse all the curses including those about creation and that curse went to the cross so that those in Christ may experience the creation in the way the creator intended being “good, very good”. So creation being delivered is that it returns to its original purpose for the manifest new man who is renewed by the gospel as seen in Collosians 3 saying that “we have put off the old man and put on the new man that is re created in the image of Him who made us. But some wait for a rapture.
Jesus Christ said that in that day you will ask anything you will receive it who said my joy I give you not as the world gives you so there is joy in the world superficial joy to those who take comfort in their safety nets that they leave to protect themselves from the elements in the obstacles in life but the joy the sons of God have being the joy of the Spirit of knowing that creation itself is subject to us by word the we being seated victorious all glorious in the Son of God being like the Son of God speaking forth like the Son of God our joy is that our comfort and security is in following the Holy Spirit by faith once again faith is RM Bill invisible and Bella Colcord to the invisible God this is fake in faith is more substantial than anything of this age of time and matter

 

Redemption in 3 Stages

Download PDF

Redemption is in three parts and is incomplete without including creation. And that has happened for those who believe in scripture as is evident by these bible quotes. “Christ came to “redeem all things to himself”. God restored all things to himself through Jesus Christ and He is the propitiation for the whole world”, “for God was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world to Himself”. And “God sent His Son into the world not to condemn the world but that the world through Him would be saved”. If we are in Him it is. And last but not least;

1 John 4.14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world”.  
And so this is what we do. We testify the same thing, the redemption of the world back to the beginning  to being “good, very good”.  If this is not true these scriptures are lies but let Gods testimony about His Son be true in you and believe. 
 
But for some, God must do another work of redemption for creation and they call it “the second coming of Christ”. That is an unscriptural phrase. They do not take God at His word. They believe in another jesus, another teaching.  As Ist John says “they came out from us” to manifest another coming, another Jesus. Meaning another savior. They use scripture expired and fulfilled in the Christ of the cross,  “for all the law and the prophets were until John”. Christ came preaching “the kingdom of God is at hand” and that claim was never retracted.
 But it is the 2nd coming seekers who look for a future kingdom.  They present a “delusion if possible to deceive the elect” a fictitious story.  And if scripture is true like we first quoted, than the second coming gospel message has no relevance with my relationship with God, myself, and creation. This is the only way to the “redemption of all things” in the 3 parts. To God, to my true self in the image of God, and to creation. This is how Paul could say “old things have passed away, all things become new” and for me they did. 
 
  All of which are redeemed  and restored as John said “to that which is from the beginning” And this is “in Christ” through faith “from faith to faith”, and not an “end time” spectacular carnal fest as some anticipate. “for the gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation for all who believe”.  We don’t need a second coming end time scenario to happen to believe and receive the gifts of God, but faith in God . It is for the 2nd coming seekers  that “God has sent forth a strong delusion for them to believe a lie”. Why? Because they reject His words like we just quoted so that with “all lying signs and wonders” they may be occupied and condemned.  
  The lying signs are misused verses from the bible. But the verses we use in these writings trump their lies.
 
It is the second coming seekers that use scripture for another savior. To believe in the spelling and the pronunciation of a name, of which changes depending on the culture and language like Jesus, Joshua, Yeshua, Christ or Messiah,  but not to know the character, is to “know Him not”.
  These people disbelieve Gods word at face value and believe another.  The Jews of old believed in a physical manifestation of the Son of God and His Kingdom, as do these Second Coming seekers, but it was Christ who said that “the Kingdom cometh not with observation”. To this they disbelieve too, to whom Christ said of them “do not follow them”. Christ’s words not mine. Do not follow the 2nd coming prophets. 
  Here now is another reason why the Second Coming message is a hoax. It teaches that creation itself must change in Composition and design. But it was when Adam and Eve fell, creation changed its disposition towards mankind by rewarding their works with “thorns and thistles” but creation itself did not change by a spectacular event to be redeemed by a spectacular event as they report.
  Redemption for creation is that creation itself responds differently to fallen man in his sin nature and the redeemed.  For creation is perfectly capable of mirroring and rewarding the fallen and the the redeemed and judging the obstinate and rewarding the just in it’s current composition and design. Or Christ would not have said to the Father “I pray not that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from evil“. So when God spoke the curse, He was only defining the rules of creation towards the fallen person. Christ restored it to us through the cross as displayed by Him. He went to the cross with a crown of thorns signifying the curse of how earth rewards fallen man and showing us that creation is restored from the curse. This is what the second coming seekers “know not” and look for another. They reject the saving of the cross.
  It is to the redeemed person that creation is restored to the beginning of being “good, very good”. And we do not need to see  the heaven and earth renewed by a spectacular event to be able to say that. That which is not good  is just because of the works of fallen man. Creation as it is is perfectly capable  of serving God and man  as is evident by history that “all things remain as they were, being reserved for the great day of judgment when all things will be burned by fire “.  But Christ has restored all things to himself all things become new.
Scripture says that “the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night in which all that works and all the elements of the earth will be dissolved with a fervent heat so that what is eternal will remain. Therefore see what manner of person you ought to be in all holy conduct?” showing that it is not creation that we are waiting to have restored to the physical eyes but to a renewed mind. This is part of your salvation and part of the restoration in the redemption. Just as the earth has the ability to wash the skies with rain so too it has the ability to flush the inhabitants from the land as is evident not just by Sodom and Gomorrah but by Egypt of old, by the Aztecs of old and by many other cultures that have disappeared from the face of the earth. Some of them have been so far removed that not even a skeletal remain are found but empty structures.
  As it says in Romans “for the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and all unrighteousness of men” and that is now. But some suppose that judgment is only the product of a Second Coming Jesus? That things are out of control. They say “oh God help us and save us”? They show themselves deniers of his word and flounders in the faith driven by fear, for their works (unbelief and fear) will receive nothing.  And that is what their gospel is, fear and disbelief in the scriptures like the ones we have quoted. They have caused many fractures, divisions and denominations among believers and who authors that?
  So the redemption of earth that takes place “in Christ” is not that creation need to change in composition and design, as though God did not know that man would fall. That He needed to modify His world as though He was caught off guard?  But there is a polarity shift that takes place for man with creation in the redemption of the cross and the instituting of the “New Covenant” which is in effect for the faithful and not reserved for another. You see Adam lost the Spirit of God of which He said “in that day you eat you shall surely die” and  that day he lost Gods blessing and indwelling spirit and became spiritually dead having no spiritual senses. (see my article on the dead) but in Christ we regain the Spirit of God and that for us is “the day of the Lord” being redeemed from the  “in that day you shall die” of Adam
In that day he died all born of Adam are born dead to the spirit of God.  We believe and receive the spirit for eternal life. This is “the day of the Lord” and not the second coming. The day of the Lord is the eternal day that all earthly days mimic. Not the day associated with time and matter but spirit. We are no longer of the Adamic but “In Christ” if we receive the gift of His nature, the new man.
  Creation from the beginning is built in with the automatic system of blessing those who are godly and doing godly goodly things or cursing those who are doing bad. Some call this “karma” and they recognize the rule but they don’t understand or know the ruler and designer is God. So when God says he was “in Christ Jesus reconciling the world to himself” this is what he meant. It is restored.
  So the Second Coming seekers look at the Earth around and see all the damage and the destruction and associate with that. They think that this world needs to be thrown away and started over but the error is in the spirit of their mind. (Rom 12.2) It needs to be re scripted by scripture. They need to be transfigured. This is what we do and the purpose for all Scripture and all our articles. We put on the new man we are gifted with who is just like Christ. We absorb His DNA being the very word of God.

 

Redemption in 3 part 1? Born Again, Death and Resurrection.

Download PDF
Death is commonly defined by as a lifeless body. Something that is unable to move on its own having no responses and no senses, cold and limp. In a state of decay.
  But God defines death in different terms saying to Adam at the tree “in the day that you eat of it you show surely die”. We know that physically his body lived on for some 900 years but in the day that he ate of the tree he surely died because he lost the Spirit of God. For it was God having created Adam from dust then breathing in him stated that he became a living being but of Adam when he fell he lost the Spirit of God and became dead. Like Jesus said of the prodigal son “this one who is dead has returned to me and now is alive therefore cloth him with the finest garments and apparel”.
  This is what God does to us through Christ as he clothes us in Christ in the finest clothing and apparel being Christ himself, we put this on. This is our gift from God in Christ.
  The first man was breathed into by God and became a living being.  When that man sinned he lost the Spirit of God and became spiritually dead. And so all humanity is dead to the things of the immortal eternal invisible God and Gods boundless timeless eternal always ready Kingdom at hand. This is the purpose for the gospel.
  This then is the reason why man must be born again to be like Adam before the fall. He needs to receive the breath of God and become a human being, a living being. This is why Paul said we conclude that if one man died for all that all are dead. It is that man being born again, being born from above, is born of a new spirit. That’s what makes us new. We are then a new creation. That’s why Paul goes on to say “therefore we regard no one according to the flesh” that in Christ we are a new creation. “The old things have passed away all things have become new”. And this “becoming new” is us being restored to what Adam lost receiving the breath of God and becoming alive. Becoming alive as it is “in Christ” saying “he who has the Son has life he who has not the Son has not life”.
  So then the definition of what Death is, is not by human standards of being a lifeless body but according to God’s standards it is by not having his spirit and not having interaction with him through his spirit to His things in spirit for “God is spirit and truth and seeks such”. To become dead is to become separate from God in spirit. To loose the eternal spirit and return to the dust is mans destiny.
  Mankind was kicked out of the garden saying “He drove man out of the garden and placed a flaming sword which turned every way to guard the tree of life, Lest he eat and live forever.  Lest he become eternal. He lost the spirit and access to the fruit of life he became a walking dead. And so goes all humanity.
  All the animals are dead to God. And this is what man became in the fall. Intuitively he fell from the ability to interact with God because he could not see or hear Him. This is why scripture speaks to those who “have eyes to see and ears to hear”. It is the fallen man who reads scripture that turns the message into religious observances for the human to do. But it is us who “come to the light to clearly see that what is required of me is done in God. (John 3.21)
 It is through the religious observances that we can learn about God and redemption “but when that which is perfect comes, then that which is in part is done away with”. That which is perfect is a new understanding, and that is what expires the observance. As Paul described in Galatians that “we are under guardians and teachers until faith comes” not until a 2nd coming Jesus. There will never be a carnal conclusion like the 2nd coming gospel supposes. It was to the spirit that man fell and that is the redemption. Spirit. Scripture says that “flesh and blood will not inherit the Kingdom “. But our born again spirited man does rule over what used to be a lifeless body.
  This is the main conclusion in the book of Romans and chapter 8.6 to be carnally minded is death and  It is the spirit of Him who raised Christ from the dead, who now lives in you who gives life to your dead body. It was a walking dead but now raised in newness of spirit. That if we live by the mandates of the flesh we remain dead, but if by the spirit we put off the dead body and put on the new man, we live. And as many as are led by the spirit? These are Gods offspring. Why? Because “to be carnally minded is death, but to spiritually minded is life. (Rom 8.6) This is the resurrection.
  So humanity is divided into two groups. Those “in Adam”, and those “in Christ”. This is resurrection of spirit which is life and not the body like a carnal rapture.
  So some wait for the redemption of the body as though it is apart from the body. They want the body to be dead to become new but we are not renewed after death but now through the gospel. We put off the old and put on the new. ( Colossians 3.14)
  The gospel is the words of God being the anatomy of God broken down for human consumption for the carnal mind to be renewed in spirit and needs not a physical death to be true. (Romans 12.2) And if you can understand what we are saying then you will learn to understand that we are restored to that which is from the beginning when Adam had a right relationship with God, and his lower nature of dust had a right relationship with creation as God said “it is good, very good.
This is the true redemption, restoration, and salvation being the same thing described in different terms for our understanding, for our renewal of mind in the spirit.
  If we recieve Gods word, we are recieved by God that “where He is we may be also”. And God being in full control,  we being “seated with Him in the heavenlies” is a mindset of a new spirit who has power over the elements. It is as God said to Isaiah that “My word shall not return to me void but shall accomplish all that I desire. For you shall go out with joy and be led forth with piece. The mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing. All the trees of the field shall clap their hands”. And it does for the new man which is why Christ said “ask anything in My name and the Father will do it”. Ask for your joy to be full. And “the Father is glorified when you bear much fruit.
  Did not Paul say in Romans that the creation itself will be delivered from corruption to the glorious liberty of the sons of God? And it is if we learn to use the gift of God to us now in our new nature. If we learn to put it on. If we are “a kind of first-fruits of His creation and then we too are a product of “every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” and do the works of our heavenly Father which is word. We speak a thing and it obeys.
  Enjoy the redemption from God to himself, to our original purpose of displaying His Glory and His likeness in the here and now. This is true godliness. (God-like-ness) and this is true salvation.
  “Today! If you can hear His voice. Today is the day of salvation!”

 

Hebrews 3, Houses

HO– USES
From Hebrew 3 we see that Moses had a house and Christ has a house whose house we are if we hold fast to Gods invisible principles. You see the man Jesus had a house. Meaning Christ in His earthly mission and that was His disciples but of His eternal work? We are His living stones being built up a habitation of God in the Spirit.
 But the man Jesus knew as a young man saying ” I must be about my father’s business? Also knew his step father on earth was a parable by being a house builder, who also said “Father I have lost none whom you have given me except the son of perdition as it is written.
   If you are questioning the difference between the man Jesus and the eternal Jesus, Jesus put on man temporarily to become a parable and a picture of redeemed man, but He wasn’t redeemed.  You see He never fell. (Phil 2 and John 13) Then He says “I go to the Father and you see Me no more” and  “if I do not go the holy spirit will not come”. In this Jesus was trying to get the disciples to see him not in a robe and sandals but as He is in His original composition of spirit like they saw Him at the transfiguration being His true form.
  This is why Paul said “we once knew Christ according to the flesh but Henceforth know we Him no more.  And as Jesus stated “great works shall you do because I go to the Father ” . If we do not see Him as completely victorious over any and every obstacle or enemy, the greater works” you cannot do. This is why praying in the name of a second coming Jesus has such meager pay off.
  For this reason the Christ the Chief cornerstone and the 12 disciples are the foundation of Heavenly/invisible Jerusalem. They are the collections of stones that comprise the gospel being the kingdom of God, being built inside of us, that we being members and citezine of God’s house hold, if we have reassembled the invisible truths laid out in scripture we have the foundation to build. To assemble. To call. This is our building and our doing the works of thr Father.
 This same Jesus said “in my Fathers house are many abodes”. Yes many houses. And if we understand the callings like what Adam called the animals and the man Jesus called the disciples saying “you are Petros. And on this rock I will gather my called out ones. We are called out to be in, to call a thing to be. And if we are in Christ we have an invisible house comprising of His attributes to affect our sphere of influence. Like Paul said ” I will not extend myself beyond my sphere which especially includes you.  This is why it’s said of the Body of Christ being the called, are His body that fills everything everywhere. A collection of spheres, or houses, or abodes.
  Paul who also said of one to deliver such a one up to Satan for their spirit to be saved.  This is the same thing Jesus did with Judas. Paul and Jesus were stewards of their houses who gave a testimony for the Glory of God.
  So we are called, we hear the call, we ascend in thought form which is our spirit and we become callers, and we call. This is what fulfills in us James who says “we are a kind of first fruits of His creation ” That we are of His kind. To call things to come to be. Like Adam before his fall. Like the first of the redeemed in the man Jesus. Like Moses who was called but never experienced the promises (the promised land equals this invisible place in spirit and truth)
So when things are looking bleak do not murmur or complain but use your invisible character and express by faith word. Gods attributes and promises to us. Reside these for your words to become your reality.
You see God said of creation before the fall that it was good, very good. And to our new nature it is. For it is redeemed to us at our personal redemption unlike the 2nd coming message of a collective future saving when Jesus comes to save again and make another new heaven and earth as some falsely claim.  God sent His Son as Savior of the world and we did just that. He is the propitiation for the whole world. And 2 Corinthians 5.19 that “God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself “. Creation is working just fine, just as it was designed to. A 2nd coming Jesus does not do this or these verses I just quoted are lies, and that can’t be but “we have come to know and believe that God has sent His Son as Savior of the eorld. Do you? Can you? Because this is the gospel. Any other gospel that does not confess that Christ has come in the flesh is anti Christ.
If we can see redemption in this way then we can accept when Paul says “old things have passed away and all things have become new”. Then you can also see why it’s hideous to believe in the science of eschatology which is nothing more than a man made religion that re appropriates scriptured expired in Christ by matching them with news articles of the day. Every generation has said Christ’s coming is imminent and it is. The Kingdom of God is at hand, finished fom the foundations of the world.
You see there is a last coming in which the elements will disappear. It’s not a saving day and it us not a day when any part of time and matter survives “for anything that can be shaken will be shaken so that what is eternal and may remain”. And “the earth and all its works will melt with a fervent heat so that righteousness remains”. And what is it that remains? Well “all flesh is as grass to be burned in a fire, but the Word of the Lord endures forever.

 

The Curse Reversed with creation

Download PDF
   In the beginning after God completed the work of creating looked upon what He had done and said that “it was good,very good”. That creation would serve His purpose just fine. And that was to? To bring many Sons to Glory. But Adam and Eve sinned and creation no longer treated them favorable for “by the sweet of their face” it would yield thorns and thistles, and in pain they would have offspring. The creation they were to rule now reigned over them.

   It was Isaiah who spoke of this being corrected saying in 55;

   My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

12For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree,
And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree;
And it shall be to the Lord for a name,
For an everlasting sign

  We see here the curse reversed. And this is not as some suppose like a physical new heaven and earth.  You see creation now is perfectly capable of reflecting the nature of a man. To those whom resides the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience it yields thorns, but to us who are renewed by faith in God gifted with the holy Spirit? Creation treats us favorably.
    Like Moses who was instructed to lead by example and speak to the rock to bring forth water? We speak to the rock of God and become “a fountain of living waters”.
    Everything we do is beyond the curse. We are “in the world but not of the world”, meaning those born from the dust. We are born of the will of God by Word and Spirit. The spirit is what Adam lost for him to be considered dead.
   The glorious thing of God’s creation of being “good, very good”, of it being restored to that which is from the beginning by “Him who was sent as savior of the world” and “God has reconciled the world to Himself through Christ” is that the world is perfectly capable of supporting fallen man and redeemed man simultaneously. Rewarding one to work  with their earthen vessel to bring forth thorns and thistles by the “sweat of their face”, while the redeemed perfected man “goes out with joy, is led forth with peace” and speaks to the rock, or whatever appearant obstacle there may be.
   If this were not so Christ would not have said to the father ” Father I pray not that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from evil” . And He did. By the power of His own word. God the Father answered that word the moment it was spoken like when He said “let there be light and there was light. Or like when He said ” Lazarus come forth ” and He did. And he didn’t have to wait 2000 years. And He didn’t have to wait for his own resurrection either because as He said to Mary ” I am the resurrection and life”. Christ did not need to become as though He needed to change or He would not be “the same yesterday today and forever”. (Hebrews 13.8)
   And this is another error of the 2nd coming seekers. That Jesus must become as though He is not yet and He needs to come back for another work of saving to save again and become savior again. That His blood and resurrection is not sufficient proof of eternal life right now. But “God has reconciled the world to Himself through Jesus Christ”. Or when Christ said “it is finished” He was a liar.
    The resurrection is His invisible self . It is the full sum of all His attributes gifted to us. This is our salvation and the saving. That is why He is Savior. That is why scripture says of the Father. That “He gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him shall not die but have eternal life”. And that “He sent His Son into the world not to condemn it but for it to be saved.
   Did your Jesus come yet? If yes then for you this reconciliation to the Father and you have, a salvaged relationship with the creator for creation itself back to what Adam lost. “That it is good very good”. This is true salvation.
   And He did not have to accomplish something for himself but for us. The cross was proof of who He already was. Salvation finished from the foundations of the world, but He was manifest in these last times for greater proof. This is why it is stated from Hebrews 2 see that you do not neglect such a great salvation “. We have the picture of God in the Son who is greater than all the law and prophets.
What was defined to Moses as being holy saying “take off your sandles for where you stand is holy ground was replaced when John the Baptist said of Christ “whose sandal straps I’m not worthy to loose. Showing the what all the law and the prophets described in parables was only dimly immaging what is the reality “in Christ”. As He said “lol the volume of the book is written of me”.  In this way the law and the prophets have been eternally expired. They have no use for us today but to point to that one. Truly this is the Christ!,
   You see when the Son asked the Father to keep us from evil, He spoke forth our sanctification, our being separated by the spirit to truth. Like Christ said “You are clean by the word spoken to you”. And we are if you can receive it. This is how every good work is accomplished. His word. So it can be said of us too ” the God of this age comes and has nothing in me”, if we cooperate in this sanctification, if we follow the unction of the spirit to holiness, so that there are no mixtures or impurities “for it is written, be ye holy!”
      We put off the works of lying, cheating and cowardliness, and every filthiness of flesh and spirit perfecting holiness, so that there is nothing in us that belongs to him who is the spirit that now works in the sons of unbelief. He operates in the vacuum of a mind void of the spirit of God. “Taken captive to do his will “. Oh wretched man that I was. But thanks be to God. I am now one of His because; as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. (Romans 8.14)
    Jesus prayed to keep us from evil. And not from that only but “all the corruption that is in the world”. (2 Peter ) Do you believe that Word? The words of Christ? The testimony from the Father about the Son? Who is your Jesus? Did He save you? Or does He still need to do that.  If He still needs to save you then you are still in your sins. Your physical locality has nothing to do with if you are saved or not.
   Your only enemy is your unbelief. That keeps you out of the Kingdom, not your physical body. “The Kingdom of God is within you” and your body can’t go there. But the spirit of the mind can experience it. So the ruler of this age is judged, all powers and all flesh is subject to Christ, and creation itself is restored to that which is from the beginning God saying that “it is good, very good “. And this takes place at a future 2nd coming Jesus? No! Right now by faith in the right savior. The saving of the cross and not at a 2nd coming.
    It is said that we will be judged by every word we speak? And we are. This is not something that happens at some collective 2nd coming but right now. John  3 says you are condemned already. Some people call this karma. Creation mirrors man in this way. Their judgment does not wait but the final condemnation does. You see Christ comes even today as a thief.
    It is as we see Christ in His true pre-incarnate nature, that we purify ourselves to be “pure even as He is pure”. We put Him on, we put on His invisible components being His attributes to fulfill the verse that says “as He is, so are we in the world”. How? Spirit and truth, “for the Father seeketh such”.
    And just as the man Jesus walked through the midst of His enemies and they could not touch Him. Him saying that “My hour has not yet come”. For us He was our hour and reason we need not fear for “by His stripes we are healed”. He paid for this too. Even as Paul who knew that the apostles were set aside last saying ” death is working in us but life is working in you”? A road is paved over death for you to have life eternal in the here and now. This is “the way the truth and the light”. Jesus Christ is the chief corner stone and the apostles are the foundation of the city in which I reside. (Eph 3)
    Christ delivered us from our enemies so that we can serve Him in truth and righteousness all the days of our lives, in the here and now.  (Luke 2)This is the rule and reign of God. This is “the Kingdom of God at hand “. And contrary to a 2nd coming Kingdom of another saving by another savior to give you salvation. He reigns over Satan sin and all flesh and creation now. The only enemy left is your unbelief that He needs to put under foot. And He does this through the gospel by His spirit whom some reject. It is the spirit of your mind needs to be renewed. It needs re-scripted and reformatted. How? By word. Even the coming one whose work us according to Satan with all lying signs is overcome by the brightness of His coming” Yes by the word. In the Beginning was the Word. (John 1.1) The second coming saving from earth by Jesus gets replaced with truth for our salvation today and not in some 2000 plus years.
    It is those who are floundering being unstable in the faith that scripture says “there is a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour”. To who? ” To our brotherhood in the world”. Meaning those in the Adamic born of dust. But we resist steadfast in the faith. This is our God given task. We appropriate His word in face of the obstacles. Unlike those of Moses who cast aside Gods word because they saw giants. But Joshua was “of a wholly different spirit” who said “if God gave it to us, we are more than able to take it”? So we do. Because? All of the promises of God are Yes and amen in Christ”. The first coming Christ.
   So our sanctification is as we Just wrote. “Father I pray that you take them not out of the world but that you keep them from evil”. And if this word is fulfilled in us then we too ” shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace”. Why? Because Christ reversed the curse for us becoming the curse on the cross to redeem us to that which is from the beginning when God said of His creation “that it was good, very good”. And so it is again to the faithful full of faith.
     We are in full power as God is. With Him and in Him. In Christ. Seated above all powers principalities and dominions in any and every age, being in the place of the age before all ages. Free from every created constraint. And we do this how? Like any good work. His word, to fulfill the word that says ” he who comes to the light to clearly see that his deeds are done in Christ “. And that “Christ will accomplish that which concerns me”. And ” He is the author and the finisher of our faith” if we cooperate with the spirit till the end. And the end is? Like Peter talks about the reward we can receive in the here and now “receiving the end of your faith, the Salvation of your soul” today if you are listening,  and not disqualified by another gospel of another Jesus.
The Kingdom of God?
Yes! Now and in every age and place and time. Repent and believe the gospel. Be ye redeemed and renewed so that for you it can be said of God’s creation that “it is good, very good.  Amen
