To think that we need to put off the carnal body is just a religious belief for God made it “good, very good”. The body can only do what the mind tells it to do. And if the mind is renewed the carnal body does what the new mind formatted by word tells it to do. It works harmoniously the way it was created to do in the beginning. Like we are insructed that we being raised with Him, we should walk in newness of life” so we do. Resurrected. Just like a gun that cannot kill by itself, the old man can be an instrument of murder. This was portrayed with Cain who slew his brother. The body like the gun can do nothing of itself.
The father’s manifesto of himself is his son. His son has articulated him to perfection. The Son said it is finished. Nothing else needs to be said. His life was the Fathers word broken down into mentally consumable bites called revelation. Here are some of His closing words to us said for our safety and security.
Jesus Christ said father I pray not that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from evil.
Christ told Abraham the same thing saying “I am your Shield, your exceedingly great reward”. This defines our sanctification. This is what it means to be “in Christ”. We are shielded. We who have this are protected from evil by word. The same mind that said “let there be light” said “keep them from Evil” and God the Son in Word form went to Abraham and said “I am your Shield, your exceedingly great reward”. This is what Adam lost and departed from. This is part of the restoration. And if God is our Shield what can get past God? As though he has a blind spot? As though our Shield has holes in it?
This we have as long as we participate in our sanctification to become holy. And if we keep his word, He says He will come to us and make his home in US. For some of us he has already done that. We are equipped with him. WORD! We learn that we are complete in Him who is the “head of all principality and Power”. We are stamped with His certification of His Word and Spirit, “for even the angels in heaven behold the face of the Father in these little ones”. This is us. His offspring. We who are protected by his shield. We are in this place called sanctification.
Sanctification is easily understood in the words of Embassy and Ambassador. An embassy is like a little Island, a country within a country. Like when one goes to any Embassy to seek Refuge from the laws of that land. Christ is our refuge. He said “come unto me and i will give you rest”. This is seen in the promise given in the book of Luke “that we being delivered from the hands of our enemies and all that hate us, would be able to serve God all the days of our lives in true righteousness without fear”. Why? Because “He who fears has not been made perfect in love” because “perfect love casts out fear”.
We do not wait for another age for this to be accomplished. We ” work this out with fear and trembling” with Him who said “fear Me”! We believe His word for sanctification today. We are kept from evil in this way.
As with a defector, or a political dissident. The moment they entered the embassy they are immediately subject to the governing laws and powers of another land. They get asylum from that which was charged against them. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ”.This is our Embassy. Here we have amnesty. “He who believes in Me does not come into judgment but has passed from death to life”. They are no longer bound to the former laws and requirements. They have full amnesty and protection from what tormented them. They are free from the laws of the land. This is what we have. This is what divides between those born in Adam and those in Christ.
Paul said “Now that you have known God, or rather having been known by Him, why is it that you return the week and beggarly elements of the earth”? Meaning, now that you have received Gods invisible genetic code written on your circumcised heart, why do you subject yourself to the multiple time dispensed theories of another savior, another Jesus? The saving has happened for the sanctified.
Collisions 2 says “Let no one cheat you through philosophy or according to the basic principles of the world and not according to Christ”. Meaning Gods invisible nature and not the building blocks of creation. That we are a part of something much greater than the substance of time and matter being “flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone” not of Adams flesh and bones but Christ’s invisible substance.The invisible building blocks of the unseen substance we call eternity. The origin and object of our faith “while we look not to the seen but what is unseen, the invisible “for that which is visible is temporary but that which is invisible is eternal”.
So in this way we are now “fellow citezine and members and saints of the house hold of God”. We do not suscribe to a future kingdom and reigning king. We are in asylum and the safety of the kingdom of God which is “at hand” if we hold fast to His words.
This defines for us our sanctification. Christ said “Father I pray not that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from evil”. That we are “in the world but not of the world”. We are not restricted to the things of EMC= square. So we are kept from evil, us who are born of God. As it says in 1st John that “we abide in His Word and the wicked one touches us not”. And those of us who know how to apply this principle “can go boldly to the throne room of Grace” for any purpose anytime we want and have not only a asylum but our citezineship.
This place is not a throne room of Grace in a physical place, the one not built by hands of man but ” built by God Eternal in the heavens”. This is our Embassy. A safe place in any land. This is our sanctification. This is our provision from the father. As Christ prayed “keep them from evil” so he does. If we don’t know this principle we cannot apply it consistently. Or we can know it and walk away from it by not walking in the light of the revelation that the spirit is showing us. We get into trouble and not believe His word. We try to cover ourselves.
“Satan is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour experienced by our Brotherhood in the world” is the believers in the world that have left the embassy and set aside their Ambassadorship, their sanctification, and subject themselves to the things they were delivered from. In their own mind and their own will they violated their own sanctification. They stepped away from the provisions and protection afforded to us by word. And there are many that have not learned correctly to walk in sanctification. They don’t know how to apply faith sanctify themselves from their fallen entanglements and disbelieve the promises.
We are are to “follow those who through faith and patience inherit the promises”. The Lord who “delayed not His coming” comes to us even now by revelation “that where He is we may be also” as Christ prayed. We “walk in the light as He is light” “for in Him is no darkness at all”. And “in Him there is no sin, he who sins has neither seen Him or known Him”, but we know Him. And as Christ told Thomas “he who has seen me has seen the Father. From now on you have seen Him and known Him. If we are “in Christ” as scripture says, we are in this place of sanctification. In this way we know God.
Sometimes the devil can be our own reflection in the mirror of self-condemnation. He is the persona that is the the contrast of God that brings condemnation in contrast of the righteousness afforded by faith and the blood of Christ. Scripture shows us when Jesus Christ rebuke Satan in Peter saying “get behind me” which is where he should be for us. The Roaring Lion in this way becomes a toothless roadkill. There’s no condemnation and in this way the accuser of the Brethren is cast down. By word.
When the disciples returned to Jesus from their mission of delivering the gospel that “the Kingdom of God is at hand” they said for “even demons are subject to us in your name”. To this Christ replied I beheld as Satan fell from heaven like lightning. In this way transformation had taken place in the heavens of their mind. In the twinkling of an eye the accuser of the brother was put under foot as incompetent, lifeless.
We are instructed to put on the shield of Faith which is able to quench all, I repeat, all the fiery darts of the wicked one. This is how we do it. This appropriately places your sinful nature at the cross and not on your self for “by his stripes we are healed”. Only the old man can walk in self-condemnation and inflict upon himself the accusations of another. Why? Because there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus who walk not according to the flesh but according to the spirit. And what is the spirit? God’s opinion of you who believe. He is the “come unto me and I will give you rest from your toil”.
There is resident in religion today the idea that Christians need it in receive blame and false humility and make good on things sound reason says we need to make bridges for relationships to be rebuilt we are not to accept the wrong to prolong a bad relationship on him was laid the sin of us all and if we walk in sin and condemnation we reject the gift the Lord said Peace I give you not as the world gives give are you oh the joy and the peace in the blessedness of the justification of God blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute any sin blessed are those whose Lawless Deeds are covered up this is the righteousness of faith in the gift of God in Christ this is not giving us permission to do wrong but empowering us to be right
You see Satan knows that if he can keep you in condemnation and false humility, the continual confessing of sin, that he can keep you at the foot of the cross. He can keep you in your lower nature, and he can keep all false religions alive.
It is said of our great high priest that “once we are purged we should have no more conscience of sins”. That we should no longer have a sinful conscious. This is what it means when 1st John says young men you have overcome the wicked one because the word of God abides in you. This is what it means. And those of the House of Moses who were instructed to look into the pole with the serpent wrapped around it, that this would make them whole thus signifying the Christ of the cross who bore our sins for us to be whole.
If you have committed a crime or a wrongdoing or damage to another person or his Goods you should repair for such as the law of the land but the things we speak are the laws of the mind and of the spirit. The kingdom of God is not in what you eat or what you wear but in righteousness peace and joy of the Holy Spirit. This we have in our sanctification the place behind the vail being shielded with faith to ward off the darts. This is peace with God this is acceptable to God.
Our justification becomes the building blocks for our sanctification this is the purpose of the book of Nehemiah to rebuild the wall around the city and that is why Tobias and Sanballat blamed and accused and ridiculed and took on the voice of the enemy for them to hasten to build the wall.
When the accuser of the Brethren is cast down, addictive patterns stop. You are no longer motivated in this way. Accusation and condemnation is powerless. For all the time, money and visits to the doctor for mental conditions, they can be cured by this one thing.
1 John 5.4 This is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith”.
Our faith in His word contains all the tools we need for victory anytime, anywhere, if we are “in Christ”. This is our Embassy. He is our Embassy. This is our sanctification, our shield, our exceedingly great reward”.
The Kingdom of God is at hand.
In the beginning was the word, the Word was with God and the Word was God. And the Word was an emination of pure thought we call the Father. Like us, our word is the product of our thoughts. God is ingenuity design and creativity and he is not limited to just these things, but these are the eternal expressions from before time and matter that we talk about. The thought expressed himself by word and the Word is His Son, an exact replica, an abstract of the Father. He who has the Son also has the Father for the two are one. “He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son”. 2 John 1.9
This is similar to how we are made in the image of God, our thoughts and our words. For this is how we shall be judged and what we are accountable for saying “you shall be judged by every word you utter”. A man is only as good as his word. The only begotton is Gods perfect Word and the first thing that came forth from thought. His Son is Word and not a man. Gods word is His first extension that did not come to be when He was spoken for He pre-existed with the Father as pure thought. This is the “only begotton of the Father”. It is in this way that “we have the mind of Christ. Pure thoughts of the Godhead, Spirit and truth. “For the Father seeketh such” to interact like Him. This is what pleases God.
The only manifestation from God that is God is word. “No one has seen the Father at anytime, but the Son declares Him”. He makes the Father manifest. Gods manifesto of Himself is His Son. The Son is His declaration of who He is. In this way the word/Son of God made everything. “All things were made by Him and for Him. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. All powers be they visible or invisible are subject to Him even now. They can only do what they are suppose to do. God cannot be caught off guard or surprised. He planned for all mans departures.
The word of God was in the beginning with God. It was the word of God that existed in the intellect of the father without Him speaking. The Son was not deprived of any aspect of the invisible intellect we call the Father “for in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body” being a body of principles, intellect, ingenuity and design and not something tangible to the carnal senses. A man He is not. Without Word nothing that was made was made, be it powers and principalities visible and invisible. Everything that is made was made of word for it was word and spirit and the intellect being the father that coexisted equally before any created thing.
In the beginning was the Word, “and the Spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters”. These three are before the beginning and in this way they are harmoniously co-equal, co-creators. Pre-creation emination and reflections of the Father. Harmonious and inseparable. Christ saying “I and the Father are one”. They always have been. And of the Spirit He had “without measure”. The Son showed Himself to us in this way. He spoke and it was so. He said “Lazarus come forth ” And He Came Back From The dead. He did the works of the Father in this way. He spoke a thing and immediately it was so. Life is in the Son. “He who has the Son has life”. This is eternal life.
And it is not as though the word expresses only a meaning or a description. The Word carries with Him the very escense of the Father. “He comes and His reward is with Him”. All the attributes, personas and charecrtistics of the Father, being invisible attributes, which are impossible to separate.
This is why creation was made for us. So that thru contrasts we could understand with clarity who the Father is with tangible things and to take the various concepts we learn about them and re-assemble the invisible witness of Him in ourselves to become godly. God-like. This is the calling to godliness. God-like-ness.
It is that word conveys the very essence of the father and not just documents to be fulfilled 2000 plus years later as many suppose. That saving is subject to time which in fact is not God at all, for there would be something God is restricted by, and God is not restricted. The one who was and is and is to come is equally God in every time and anytime of every age and any age.
This is the gospel of God, “the power unto salvation” unfettered, unhindered and un-stoppable, even by time.”He came to His own and His own did not receive Him. They could have but they didn’t. But to as many as received him to them he gave power to become his children, even to those who believe in his name”. It is by the gospel of Christ that God starts and completes his work in us and in no other way. The author and finisher of our faith” has been written even unto completion of salvation. “God in these last days has spoken by His Son” then He sat down and is now waiting for His work to be accepted by you. Christ responded to John the Baptist “why do you seek another”. So we too must ask ourselves. What are we waiting for because “Today is the day of salvation”.
If a doctor give you a pill or a serum and says here take this and you will be healed, you believe him. But you reject the one who says to have faith in him because there’s no visible physical response you can handle or see so you doubt him. He whom you seek is standing at your door. “That which we’ve seen, heard and handled concerning the word of life. We write this so truly you can have koinania with us, oneness, with the Father and the Son. Gods Son took our infirmities and poorness for us to be rich now. He took our carnal bodies to the cross in order for us to put on a body like his now. One like his which is invisible.
So if we understand God in this way we can understand the word of God in his true composition of who he is. He is invisible thought before being spoken. He is the anatomy of God. He is Gods genetic code broken down into sound bites for our spiritual consumption to become like . We hear, we believe and we speak. Do you see what we are talking about? Then you have eyes to see. A new understanding. This is your new nature. Put this on.
It was the word of God who put on Humanity temporarily saying “the word became flesh and dwelt among us”. And because of this we beheld the glory of the only begotten of the father, an exact replica. The Word was not originally a man. Christ temporarily became that. If we were to mimic the man we would all be wearing robes and sandals with our hands folded together in front of us. But He portrayed all of the Fathers invisible attributes for us to see with the eyes of our understanding. And as we see Him as He is in this way, we ingest Him and become what we eat. This is why He is “the bread of life that comes down from God out of Heaven” the place of pure truth and eternal light not visible to the human eye but made known by revelation through His Word in our hearts. This is the true light the 24 hour days only mimick. We see Him as He is and become more and more like Him. (1 John 3.2) and John 14 He who has seen Me has seen the Father. We see the Son in the Father then we see ourselves there too. We are “in Christ “. This is the elect. We see that we too existed in the mind of the Father being predestined of this sort. We are “a kind of first fruits of His creation” as we put on word, meaning the genetics of God, we are transfigured in this way, one revelation at a time “to a perfected man” (Eph 4)
“The Word became flesh” But his Humanity was short-lived because that is not his natural composition. It was said “a short work I will do on earth, and I will finish it in righteousness”. And He did saying “it is finished”. And if he appears again a man, he is not in his natural composition. And if He appears for another work, then He was not finished. And if we see Him a man, then into what are you being transformed? Into a man? A man He is not for He said “I go to the Father and you see Me again no more” speaking of His humanity. (John 16.10)
God the Father with God the son and God the spirit in their natural compositions are all Eternal Immortal and invisible and inseparable, broken down only in concept by word for us to assimulate. This is how they can say “lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the ages”. Meaning any age in every age. They are in their true and natural composition always unperturbed and unfettered and perfectly insulated. This is the peace of God for those who know. It is for us to awaken there. This our full sanctification. To wake from our Adamic slumber where he was split. We can say like John the Baptist “He who has the Bride is the Bridegroom, therefore my joy is complete”. John’s purpose was accomplished saying “they must increase and I must decrease” (corrected from the Greek)
Even when Christ was in the flesh He was full of the Spirit and said “I and the Father are one” describing His invisibleness and ours too. “The world does not know us because it did not know Him. It did not know Him because they could not see Him.” They looked at the robe, sandals and the lowly colt and missed out on the invisible counterpart and contrast of Him on a white horse with His garments stained in blood whose name is…THE WORD OF GOD!
If we can understand the son pre-existed like this being thought of the father then we too can understand the elect. The elect are those who existed in the mind of the father as a thought. And as receiving word we return to the father in this way saying “My Word shall not return to Me void, but shall accomplish all My desire”. So we awaken. These are the elect. This is how as we look to the word as “be holding in a mirror the image of the Lord we are being transformed in the mind from glory to the Glory into his same full image. It is because of this we are the called. And having put on humanity we awake to the invisible things to God through the gospel. This is how we confirm that we are the elect. To realize we are in the world but not of the world. we are of a different composition. We realize that “when that which is perfect is come that which is in part is done away with it” because we receive the things the father has thought for us to be imaged like His Son. We understand the counterpart of all the law, the feasts and the prophets is the Son. “Lo the volume of the book is written of Me” said the Son.
For those of us who have received God’s spirit and God’s word we lack nothing of the father. “For of His fulness we have received”. So as the Word prayed while he was human, He said “father that they may be with us where I am they may be also”. If we have word and spirit that saying is fulfilled in us.
When we look into the mirror of the word with the reflection of the Holy Spirit, and we see His attributes compared to what we are, we are not satisfied until that reflection shows in us the same thing. The transformation has happened. We shall not be satisfied till we awakened in His likeness. (from the Adamic slumber) We become godly. God-like and that likeness. It’s not that we awaken from a 24 hour sleep. With that we awaken from the sleep on Humanity placed on Adam when he had his ribs removed we are awake and we are pre adamic pre-sleep adamic. And from Isaiah “awake! Put on your beautiful garments! Arise and shake yourself from the dust of the earth.” And so we do. How beautiful are the feet who bring glad tidings”. That’s right. This is the gospel.
It is in this way we are His image. God is not a body like we have as many suppose. And it is in this way we are instructed to put off the flesh. It is to realize that we too are not a physical body but an embodiment of principles and eternal truths. We just temporarily occupy this tent. If we have learned to put on the Word of God, we can say too that we are one with the Father and the Son (John 5) We have received the Word. This is putting on Christ. Paul said in Colossians 3 that we put off the body of the sins of the flesh. The embodiment of the thoughts we adopted from Adam.
So if we look to the word and we put word on, we are new embodiment of principles. Just like a political body. As the Constitution is an embodiment of principles that people stand on but we stand on the word of God and say like Him “everything is put underfoot. So if we understand that God is not a physicality, we can put this on in the way that He is, invisibly by faith. This is our embelical cord to the Almighty.
When Adam sinned he did not put on different body in a physical way. He put on a body of disbeleifs. He disbelieved the Living God. These are the principles he put on not a different physical body. God created the physical body then said “it is good, very good”. it was the mindset that Adam adopted that breads fear and self-sufficiency as evidenced by the fig leaf. And that was his sin that Adam put on was an embodiment of principles of self sufficiency. This is what we need to put off is what was passed on to us by Adam. We need to put on that which was passed on to us by the man Christ. To be “in Christ” is an embodiment of principles and not a different carnality. Our old one gets renewed in purpose. We are no longer in Adam.
To “put off the body of the sins of the flesh” is to be put on a new awareness. It is in this way that we are raised in understanding. “Through the knowledge of Christ ” (2 Peter ) This is our resurrection. We put on a new awareness, a God awareness.
Paul had finally transitioned from the Pharasitic religious mindset of having to put off the body in a physical way to “putting off the sins of the flesh” being the sins of unbelief, fear, doubt and all that embodies. This is the true meaning of the resurrection and not the death of the flesh itself but the death old thought system of doubt and fear that disbelieving God breads. “Also put these off”
Just as the body is dead without the spirit, the body cannot live without the embodiment of principles of a spirit. In this way we have the mind of Christ. That is if we understand that Gods true self is an invisible embodiment. And we so are we if we can adapt. The physical body will follow. As John said “we are righteous even as He is righteous”. And “as He is so are we in the not as he was. The declaration makes it so if you are able to receive it.
In Romans 6 Paul talks of how “we are buried with Christ through baptism so that we too can walk in newness of life “. Yes in newness of life in resurrection power. Just as Paul prayed for us to know “the great power that is in us is the same power that He used to raise Christ from the dead”. We just need to know how to use it. It is His Spirit in us that gives us life now if we can receive it. This is why Paul said “I strive to attain to the resurrection ” who also said of those of the law “strove day and night hoping to attain. So we do. This should be our goal too. If we can see that it is an embodiment of principles and not a new physical body this is attainable. And it is or the word would not have put on flesh to prove it to us. Did He not say “I am the resurrection and the life” while He Co habit ed with humanity?
Just as any nationality or religion contains laws and principals, and that anybody that holds to those partakes of that political or religious body by beleiving them and claiming association with them to be one with them? In the same way we partake of the body of Christ. He is the word of God, and as we learn and are renewed in this way we become the word that transforms.
Another physical Christ is an illusion of the religious mind that distains the physicality that God made and said “it is good very good”. It is the csrnal mind thst is enmity against God in this way.
So when we take communion, we partake of His body and collectively announce newness of life. When we research writings of Christ, it is to put on Christ, to recieve Word, the very body He truly is of being “the Word of God”. We see Him as He is invisible and cloth ourselves in this. This is how we are “in Christ ” in His embodiment of principles. Our current physicality is perfectly capable to do so and we fulfill the verse that says “as He is, so are we in this world.
So like we’ve said. When Adam fell there were no broken bones or skinned knees. There was no lightnings or thunderstorms or cataclysmic events. He fell in spirit. In understanding, in doctrine and principals. This is the restoration the redemption the renewal and the resurrection.
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND
Pure unfettered word of God.
This is “the light that shines in the heart of every man”. And this light is not like the light of a 24-hour day, for God said in the beginning “let there be light”. But there was a light that pre-existed the spoke. And the Light, this pre-existing light, is that which we testify to. This eternal light that shines everywhere all the time, that is not noticeable to the human eye, who “shines in the heart of every man who cometh into the world”. This is the Word of God, the very essence of God that brings us life. This is the very DNA of God broken down into fragments for our understanding, for our spiritual consumption to become godly, Godlike. We call Him “the Bread of life that comes down and gives life to the world”.
This is the Light Paul encountered that was “7 times brighter than the sun”. Brighter than humanly ascertainable.
This is how God is light and “in him is no Darkness at all” For “the light shines into darkness and the darkness does not comprehend it, but to as many as to receive the light, to them He gave power to become the children of God even those who believe on the name”.
It is “the light that shines in the darkness that has shown in our hearts to bring to light the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”. And this shining is for our transfiguration into His realm “from the Glory to the Glory as by the Spirit” to the spirit.
The “Father of glories” begat us in this way to be “a kind of first fruits of His creation”. His creation of the eternal substance only pictured in the Law and Prophets. Then more fully seen in the incarnate Christ , not being the robe and sandals but the invisible attributes of God seen in action.
This is that light. The light of God and the word of God are the pre creative substance that seeks you. And the Eternal Light, unlike the light we are familiar with. The light we are familiar with is a ray that has a starting and stopping point. But the light we are talking about is an explosion that emits in every direction. This is a light that cannot be deflected for it permeates everything. “The lines (rays) have gone out to the ends of the earth. The light of God is the very essence of God “for in him is no darkness at all”. That is why the light of God is knowledge because the light is another description of the intellect that the Word who became flesh exceplified.
It is this revelation light. “It is God who commanded light to shine out of darkness who has shown in our hearts to bring to light the knowledge of the glory of God I’m the face of Jesus Christ”. This is the eternal light and not the physical sun.
In him was the light of men we Behold Him he was crowned with death our death so that we could be crowned with life his life man was made to be crowned with Glory and Honor
