In the Hebrew language God is Echad. Meaning God is one. Deuteronomy 6. Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! Meaning; God is indissoluble, in-divisible and inseparable in His original composition of Spirit and truth.
For this reason there is another construct than Spirit and truth, and that is time and matter. In this construct God is broken down into individual sound bites, not for a carnal manifestation, but for our consumption and growth. For our transformation from here to there. He who is eternally one and complete in Himself is immortal and invisible then broken down into the law, the prophets and the Psalms for us to know Him.
God is indivisible and inseparable. He is only broken down in concept for us to realize who God is by degree, one revelation at a time, to the degree we are able to receive, until we learn elemental principles not of the building blocks of Earthen elements, but of the invisible building blocks that makes up God in the spirit. This is God in His natural before time construct of “that which is from the beginning”. The before time. The eternal one.
It is as we consume these assorted truths that we re-assemble the Son of God in ourselves in our inner man and become Godly. We become godlike in this way. Scripture contains the very DNA of God for us to be re-scripted. In the beginning was God in Word form, and as we consume His word we are modified internally and become “a new creation in Christ”. We are born again and re-created in this way. Old things have passed away, all things become new” in this way and not another. We become immortal, invisible eternal and not time sensitive.
Like Paul said “you observe days months seasons and years. I am afraid that I’ve labored for you in vain”. They laid God out on a time frame called The Feasts. And “I labor again to have Christ formed again in you”. We are not time frame orientated. Those are of the earth. God is not saying “My ways are higher than your ways as the heavens are hihger than the earth”.
So when we receive the Son in Word form, the construct He was before He became flesh, the elements He is made up of before the Father spoke Him, we receive God in His totality “for in Him (The Son) dwells the fullness of the godhead body and we are complete in him” if we partake of His invisible personage we understand in His Word.
So it is our journey here in time And matter to understand and realize more clearly what Word means and how to put Word on. How to put Christ on as scripture instructs us to do. We learn to understand what God is. We assimilate God in this way in the inner man. “For we have this treasure in earthen vessels (our man) that the Glory and the Excellency may be of God and not ourselves” our man. It is other worldly. And that we are “transformed by the renewing of our mind”.
We put on Gods invisible nature in an invisible way “from faith to faith” no other visuals. For we who have begun in the spirit perfect nothing in a carnal way. He said “My words are spirit and they are life”. We see the “evidence of the things unseen” and we accept Him in the spirit of our minds. We use our invisible tool of faith to implement “the things that have been freely given to us in Christ”. In this way we see “the hidden things in Christ” and in this way we see our new self hidden there too. In this way we fulfill the verse that says “Father that they whom you have given Me may be with Me where I am”. Yes! Seated in the heavenlies in Christ”. With Him, like Him and enjoying the delicacies He enjoys of the pre-created order. We the elect are the true heirs of “all the things” of God. We do not associate with the sit and waits of the second coming.
It is us “the called” the eklisia, who have arrived. To us who have been given the keys to the Kingdom, we have unlocked it and entered in. “No one has descended from heaven but he who has ascended to heaven who is the son if man who is in Heaven” (John 3) And if we are in Him, we are in heaven because heaven is hidden “in Christ”. Because all things of God culminate in the spirit, in Christ in one. God is one, God is Echad. He is the full sum, the collection of all His concepts broken down in what is called the law and the prophets, fulfilled and expired in Christ, of invisible building blocks we call truths in the spirit. Truths displayed to our understanding to be reassembled in our inward man to the culmination of all truths to the truth. God. Echad. Did not the Christ pray for us to be one with Him as He is one with the Father? (John 17)
Just as like species communicate in their own language, fish to fish, bird to bird, and man to man. We must put on Word, the Son of God, the manifest mind of God, to communicate with our Heavenly Father. To have a clear relationship with God. This is the purpose of the cross. His “words are spirit and they are life”. We associate with Him like this and assimilate what we associate. “We testify what we hear and see”. No impurities. “In Him” there is nothing else to talk about but Him. And we who are “in Him” know this truth where there is no darkness or other fabricated impurities. We have nothing left to say, but we say everything at the same time. He is complete in Himself and as We take Him in, we are as complete as His self like looking in a mirror. We see a reflection of Himself in ourself as His same self and His purpose is completed. Just as our Lord on earth said “Father I have finished the work you have given Me to do. I have given to those You have given Me your Word and they have kept it”. And so we did. This is the finished work. Our transfiguration had its transformation and we are complete in Him. We have this “koinania”. We too are one. We are of the Echad in the Father by clothing our mind in this way.
When you were told to put on the breast plate of love, what store did you buy that at? When you were instructed to “Let your feet be shod with the Gospel of peace”, who tied your shoes? When you were told to “taste and see that the Lord is good”, did you pallet that with your tongue or your mind? Do you see what we are talking about? Then you have the eyes to see of a different nature. A spiritual one.
It was said to those of Moses “seeing with their eyes they see not, hearing with their ears they hear not, for God has given them the spirit of stupor to be snared taken and caught. But not so for us. We are of the elect. For those of us “who have eyes to see and ears to hear” of a different nature. A spiritual nature. Being born again not of the building blocks of time and matter, but by His words and His Spirit. Redeemed not with solid silver or gold but the Word of God that endures forever. To be “a kind of firstfruits of His creating” being “born again” “born from above”. (John 3)
To conceptualize God in this way is to conceive in the spirit. To be genetically altered from the preconception of the carnal inception of the death passed on to the Adamic nature being “from dust to dust” to the life of God in Christ” receiving eternal life “from the spirit to the spirit”. For “He who has the Son has life, He who has not the Son has not life”. To our inheritance we arrive. We arise.
And this genetic alteration we do In the “inner man”, in “the spirit of our mind”. We serve the Living God by reassembling these concepts passed on to us through scripture, to realize not so much only who He is but who we are. That is why we look to the scriptures “as beholding our face in the mirror arr being transformed into the same full image as by the spirit”, not being a mirror to reflect our eye color or our skin complex but the complexities of our spirit, and so we do. We put our new nature on, and as it says in scripture to “put on Christ”. This then is our purpose here on planet earth. Our purpose is not to wait for another coming one to transition us. It was “the wicked servant who said my Lord delays His coming”.
The New Covenant is already in place whereby God writes these things not on tablets if stone but on our invisible part we call the heart. We ponder these things and they are raised incorruptible in the spirit of our mind. We assimilate God. We associate with God. We are of His kind of Spirit and truth.
It is scripture that contains the very genetic information of God given to us for our “transfiguration”. That word from the Greek is “metamorphos” and as a worm does not comprehend the flight and life of the butterfly, so too the carnal cannot understand the spirit. They are diametrically different. They are in fact opposite.
As we take communion of Word, we receive this genetic information. “We know Him even as we are known”. Like Adam knew Eve. A genetic transfer takes place. We display perfection in the spirit in our understanding and fufill in ourselves “till we all come to perfect understanding, to a full stature of Christ”. An exactitude. We fulfill the verse in ourselves that says “when that which is perfect is come that which is in part is done away with”.
The first Epistle of John says “that that which we have heard which we’ve seen which we’ve handled which we’ve touched essentially which we’ve consumed concerning the word of life. That which we declare unto you that which we manifest to you. And why do We do this? So that you too can have fellowship with us. With us who are spirit. To spiritually manifest and Him. Our full sum duty, role and goal is to articulate these things.
It is in this way that the kingdom of God is at hand. Within our grasp.
God is One. We are one with God “in Christ”.
