The Elect in Glory. The completion of the Gospel

Download PDF

God’s purpose for creation is to obtain people like Himself  called The Elect. “For the Lord’s portion is his people; (Deuteronomy 32.9)

God’s objective for the Elect is to share His Glory with them. For this reason He is called “The Father of Glory”.  He calls us to Himself so we must participate in this project.

When He is done with us, He is what we become. Even as it’s written that the gospel is “for the edifying of the body of Christ,  till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the full measure and stature of the fullness of Christ; 

How do we do this? With scripture,  Eternal life for those who by patient continuance of seek for Glory, Honor and Immortality. It is as we seek these things, the Holy Spirit reciprocates God’s glory as Paul also taught us that “we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transfigured into His self same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” Showing for us that the vehicle we use to get to Glory is not a train, a boat, car or a plane but the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit also strives for this cause saying “the Spirit makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because the Spirit makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.”

Fortunately for us Paul was at the suffering stage of his transformation so that we can understand that our part is to persevere because “our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. “.

Our afflictions are equal to the obstacles we encounter in the temporal realm of things we need to hold on to loosely.

These things cause afflictions, and prohibit your transfiguration. This is why we “lay aside every weight and sin that easily ensnares us, running the race with endurance, looking to Christ the author and finisher of our faith”. Why? Because He is the storehouse where all of our wares come from to help our cause.

Our Glory is a shared Glory. Even as Paul went on to describe, For it is God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to bring to light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

As we participate in this Heavenly gaze, the Works of God are accomplished in us. Likewise God’s work in us reaches a completion as well, so you need not wait for another physical appearing to bring you something God hasn’t already given us. (2 Peter 1)

The whole purpose of Gods creation is a harvest designed uniquely for Him of entities that resemble Him..  The writer of Hebrews put it like this “ For it became fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many to glory“.  These are the Elect, us who bask in this blessedness.

It is to bring forth the replicas of “The Only Begotten” with His attributes for the “Father of glories”. To begat offspring of His kind to be glorious, being “bone of His bone, and flesh of His flesh” of  glorious spirit and truth, “for the Father seeks such”. Such are the Elect. We are the purpose and conclusion of creation. As it says in Ephesians “That in the consumation of the fulness of times, that God would gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him”. And because it is said of Christ “He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.” And because He is everywhere, we don’t need to go somewhere to be gathered to Him but Spirit and Truth, because God is not bound by creation, our new person too cannot be confined as such. We know we are gathered to Him already because we can’t get any closer to Him than we already are for He is the “I will never leave you or forsake you” and the “Lo I am with you always. We are gathered together “in Christ” with these words and fulfill our fullness of times. As Paul said “each one in their own order” (1 Corinthians 15. 23 ) showing us there is a successive order, and every age has a harvest.

John defined us as those “Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of men but of God”.

James says “we are born by the word of truth to be a kind of firstfruits of His creation” of things that supersede the 6-day creation. “each one in their own order” so maybe now it is your turn.

The gospel refers to “each one in their own order” with these words “For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear” showing the progression. The Elect are full heads of corn plucked and held in the father’s hand. Guarded, preserved and protected “in Christ” at the right hand of the Father.

Scripture also says “the wheat and tares mature together”, and “the first shall be last and the last shall be first”.

There is a greater maturation today as the harvest time ripens. We see wickedness abound but there is a spiritual abounding not readily discernable to the carnal senses that prevails. We are popping like popcorn, “first the blade then the full head, and the Gates of hell will not prevail. They can only lend to our cause.

It is us the Elect who are born of the spirit who have our earthen hardware in tact because since Christ was God-like in human form, He shows us it is possible to become His full stature, because as He is, do are we in the world”.

Having our lowly external body, filled with our internal, spiritual man who is seated Eternal in the heavens “in Christ”, to rule and reign with him even now and fulfill the verse in ourselves that says “we are complete in Him who is head over all principalities and Powers”, having obtained the victory over the sub sector rogue entities who decieve. Having pulled down every high things that exaults itself against the knowledge of God” and using them to walk on. We clamoured up the things God has said to join Him there. His word did not return to Him void, because we returned with that Word and fulfilled the words of Christ who said”follow me that where I am you may be also, and we did. We are the elect.

We are God’s overcomers. And “who is it that overcomes the world? Those who believe that Christ came in the Flesh”. (1 John 5)

Just as you must have gills and fins to follow a fish, and you must have wings to mingle with birds, Christ is God’s Word and you must become Word to follow Him. This is how He is “the way, the truth and the life” and “no one comes to the Father except through Me”. So we did. We  join Him there. Like Jacobs ladder. Even as Christ said “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man”. Showing us that Word is verticle climb in the spirit for the reversal and eraser of the fall.

This is an irreversible, eternal work of something far greater than an elusive second coming concept, and different work from the 6 days of creation.

All the law and the prophets meticulously laid this out over a few thousand years for our understanding, beginning with Moses through the Red Sea symbolizing baptism. Forget about the 40 year wandering, that was disasterous. Then their journey continued with Joshua into the promised land with the works of the collective shouts. Then with David taking all the artifacts laid out in the previous ages, the priest, the commander-in-chief and King of Israel, with the ark of the Covenant which contained the tablets and show bread and such David stood them up like a ladder and went up into Jerusalem, both physical and invisibly. David then danced naked in public, symbolizing the completion and expiration of all the temporal old Covenant artifacts, for the implimentation of the Eternally New things in Christ, showing  The Revelation and unveiling of Jesus Christ and His eternal Bride, His city, Heavenly Jerusalem. She is where all the old concepts expire, pointing to the eternal form as being “the Kingdom prepared from the foundation of the world” and the original eternal images of “God made man in His image male and female made He them” King and Kingdom.

Those old artifacts physically mimicked invisible realities hidden in Christ of things God told Moses “see that you make all things according to the pattern I showed you. Because those were only patterns and pictures of the reality invisible to the naked eye, “for eye has not seen, not ear heard the things that God has for those who love Him. But He reveals them to us by His spirit, ya even the deep things of God”.

For the old Covenant wanderers, God’s Glory was denied. Moses was shielded from His Glory as the Lord passed by and Moses only saw the trail of light that lingered from such Glory. For “no one shall see God’s face and live”?  But we all, with open face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transfigured into the same image from glory to glory.

And Christ said “those who have seen Me, have seen the Father. And “when we see Him we shall be like Him for we shall see Him as He is”? Yes Spirit and Truth

This is what the good news provides. This is what the gospel delivers. Replicants of the Father full of Glory.

The Israelites journey was  oa physically on Earth, but ours is not, we have a Heavenly calling and aspiration. The Heavenly Father did not give us a journey we could not accomplish. But you must walk in the spirit to complete this journey and not with human feet.

There is no comingling of the two. Even as Paul said “flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom of God”, but the re-spirited mind of faith does. Paul also said, “For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit” showing he learned the distinction between the inner and the outer man to discard his old limitations, as do we. This is how we know we are the Elect. In this way we fulfill the verse that says, the wind blows where it wishes to you can hear the sound of it but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it goes, so is everyone born of the spirit” having attributes and features unique only to God and His offspring.

Even as scripture says ” I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Cor 6) so we must see ourselves like Him.

 Isaiah spoke of the Elect saying “they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory. Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?” It is us, the Elect.

We have a birdseye view, and this perch is not our own. “But to as many as recieved Him, to them He gave them power to become the children of God, even to those who believe in His name”. So you may join us too if you have this faith. Come in the water is warm.

The father is most glorified when his task has been completely fulfilled in his offspring, the children of Glory.

Isaiah also said for us “In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee. My Elect shall long enjoy the works of their hands.

As it was written of old times “Israel hath not obtained what he seeks for; but the elect have obtained it, and the rest were blinded.” Again that is true in our day. It is the religious establishments of our day who are hardened and knash their teeth at these concepts as they have always done showing who their father is.

Paul explained how important it is for the Elect to know how to activate their glorious heritage in Timothy saying “Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the Elect, that they also may obtain the salvation that is in Christ with Eternal Glory.

And if you are “in Christ” you are with eternal Glory. They are inseparable. This is the  purpose of the Gospel and Paul’s express concern. Salvation with Eternal Glory. In God’s Heavens the two are indistinguishable. “All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God”? We are fallen no more.  Salvation is His glory in us restored, from Faith to Faith.

There are no other tools or mechanisms to get you there. For all flesh is like grass and withers, but the Word of the Lord endureth forever”. This is why you must become Word to join Us here.

Peter says “ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.” Showing that recieving the Glory is your obtainable crown and the reason for your humanity.

If the salvation message you heard does not include the gift of “eternal glory” as the objective of your pilgrimage, you’re not hearing the whole salvation message. If you are only half saved, you are still being saved and your journey is still in progress, “to the degree you are able to receive”.

“All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God”? You cannot be judged and condemned for something you are not capable of accomplishing. Like an animal cannot be incarcerated for murder. E

Every human being has the potential of the Glory of God through repentance and perseverance, which simply means, turn around and head for God. If you continue your journey from God you remain condemned. If you confess with your mouth, and believe in your heart in your inner man, you shall be saved, as long as this remains your new journey.

The price was paid, the gift was given, you have been forgiven and full clemency has been granted. You will never stand in God’s judgment for sins of the past. Only Satan brings that up. You are now evaluated by what you have aquired by faith in your inner person. Your old self has been dealt with, condemned and put out of business.

As Paul said of your body in Romans, recon it dead. Recon is an accounting term. Your debt column is closed and paid in full in blood, as evidenced by the cross. Unless you want to go back there, but even as the Israelites were instructed at their Passover, when the angel of death past over “eat this in haste” meaning accept it and move on. Commence your journey. Proceed to the Glory, the destination of your Heavenly calling, the Pinnacle of faith. Seated in Glory, where the journey is over. Receive the gift. Relax.

Isaiah 55 put it like this ”

Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

The sure mercies of David are in the promise of his son, not the physical one but the heir of that throne, Christ, being “The King of Kings and The Lord of lords. In Him the gospel message is complete.

This is why scripture says that “we are complete in him who is head over all power the principalities”, showing that we have the eternal glory too, gifted to us by the cross to be implimented by faith in this age and every age.

That we partake of a greater body of being “in Christ” of a heavenly sort. As Peter said “we are living stones built together a habitation for God in the spirit, and not man made structures and earthen buildings or human bodies, but nevertheless a body and a structure, but indiscernible to the carnal senses of taste, touch, sight, sound and smell, but perfectly understood by the re-scripted mind of faith as the body of Christ.

Paul says to those “not discerning the [h]Lord’s body (temple and building). 30 For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many [i]sleep” (or die) to the things of God, showing it’s an agregious error to comingle Heavenly things with carnal, “for the carnal mind is enmity against the things of God. It is not subject to the things of God and neither indeed can be so then those who are in the flesh cannot please God. 

This violates the eternal laws of kind begats according to kind “begats after kind” set in place from the beginning and reinforced in Noah’ who only took on male and female according to their kind. Fish for fish, bird for birds, mammal for mammals, man for woman and spirit for spirit. And we are a kind of firstfruits of His creation of spiritual things eternal and other worldly.

If the Glory seams too hard to Except, we need to go no further than the nectar of the Gospel where Christ went to the Father and asked for some specifics.He prayed not for the world, but those whom the Father had given Him, namely us. Here is that discourse:

17 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.

For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.

Revelation, The Manifest Children of God

Christ said “I have many things to say to you however you are not able to bear them, however when the spirit of truth comes, you will be taught all things”. This is from the “all things” from the spirit of Truth.

It was Paul who said, for the gospel that I preached to you I did not receive it by man, nor was I taught by man but through revelation of Jesus Christ, showing for us that it does not from without but within.

Christ also said, greater works shall you do because I go to the father and you see me again no more. These are the greater works we do because we have accepted the reality that Christ will not come back in His former fashion of the flesh that he expired with the law, as many suppose, so we have His advantage.

Christ comes as a thief because if you don’t accept Him as He is. The gift giver becomes a taker as He said “behold I come as a thief, and blessed are those who keep their garments”. So it is important to know what we are to put on

Here are some things you need to know to ensure your election, “for in so doing there is provided a grand entrance into the “Kingdom of God at Hand”. (2 Peter 1)

The things of this age were created and mankind were begotten of things that hadn’t been before. They come from the dust and return to the dust. In the end everything from the 6 d­ays of creation will all be burned in a fervant heat for the eternal to remain. (2 Peter 3.12) Then righteousness will be without competition. But we don’t need to wait for that event to happen to participate in the things that God has for us in “The Kingdom of God at hand”.

Gods things are not created so they do not decay or return to the dust and they cannot be burned because they are elementally different. They are spirit and truth. They never get old and are forever new. God is pre-existent and eternal, and so are the things that are specific to Him. To this the Elect are called to participate in even now as being “The Kingdom of God at hand”, and “The Kingdom prepared from the foundations of the world”.

Gods things are not subject to space and time but are ubiquitous. Meaning God and His things are not time sensitive events to be experienced in the past or the future but even right now. They are all harmonious, coexistent and inseparable. Wherever God is, everything that is uniquely His is with Him. And because God is boundless and ubiquitous, being everywhere all the time, so are His things. This is why “The Kingdom of God is at hand” to the renewed mind of faith. This is why we “the called” are to grow in the knowledge of God, because that is our only access point to Him, and in Him is everything that is eternal.

His things are made manifest and evident to us, clearly seen not in 1st and 2nd comings as many suppose, but through a succession of comings, revelations, manifestations and unveilings to the human heart and mind, to the degree you are able to attain.

The Etemology of Revelation.

The word revelation originates from the Greek word “apocalypse”. This word does not mean catastrophes as thought of today. To witness the lifting off of a covering from a statue in a public square is an unveiling. This is an apocalypse, a revelation and a manifestation. With God it is to  make visible something out of reach of the physical senses. This is what God’s Word does, it makes visible things that are out of reach of the carnal senses.

The purpose for God’s word is to make visible the invisible, to make knowable the humanly un-see-able, to make attainable the humanly impossible, for us, the Elect to acquire in this age our inheritance of the things hidden “in Christ” the source and our final destination for the complete apprehension and attainment of the gift of Godliness delivered to us through the gospel of things pertaining to “The Kingdom of God at hand. To fulfill the verse in ourselves about God that “His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who hath called us to glory and virtue:

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by through these you are partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” in the here and now, no supposed 2nd coming involved. Or as Peter put it “recieving the end of your faith”. (1 Peter 1.9)

However this promise is not for the carnal man or his external senses or religious nature. This is why Christ spoke in parables “for without a parable spoke He not to the people” or the religious zellots of that day or ours.

That is why faith is the evidence of things hoped for, the (proof of the invisible) substance of the things that are unseen”.  All the law and the prophets were just for this cause. To help us see the un-see-able. As Moses was instructed “see that you make all things according to the pattern shown to you on the mount” showing us there is an eternal, original these things were pattered after. But this key principle they forgot and became confused enough to get lost in the wilderness. They too were just to  help us see what is just beyond the vail of human perceptions. This is why the flesh is called the vail. It is the carnal senses that are useless pertaining to the things of God. That is why you must put them off when relating to God.

If you are waiting to experience God in a physical way with a zip code and a time zone, you are blind to Him who wisks about you even now able to save. This is why He is “The Savior”.

This is why our Lord says “20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me”. Enter spirit and truth.

This is why Christ said of the Jews “seeing with their eyes they see not, hearing with their ears they hear not. It is with the heart that one must see and hear to understand the things of God”. They are still trying to build something to house God today. God cannot be carnally known. This is why Romans 8 says the carnal mind is enmity against God. It is not subject to the laws of God and neither can be. So those in the flesh cannot please God.

That was the sin of Sodom and Gomorah. They said “bring them out that we may know them” visibly. Meaning, show us God on the physical plain and we will believe. This is why Lot and his family were instructed to leave that plain for the high lands, which is a picture of rising in the spirit. Which is the same reason our Lord on earth said  “let is go up from here” and “let us arise”. Learn to stand on these truths, the plateau of the spirit.

Set aside the carnal expectation of God becoming a human again. He finished that work and said “I go to the Father and you see me again no more” at least in a carnal way. He returned to His original composition of the Word before time of Spirit and truth.

Flesh and bone does not inherit the things of God, because God is spirit and truth and seeketh such.  Such are we. It is those of us who have adopt the words of God who can commingle the things of God presented to us from the gospel, engrafted in our minds for promtings by the Holy Spirit, to think and interact with God, to experience the Blessings God enjoys that are uniquely specific to Him and His. Such are we, we are the Elect.

Paul said “the vail is done away in Christ”? We who are recipients of the New Covenant provisions see what is beyond the vail of human experiences being “The Kingdom of God at Hand”. Within reach of something tangible but not physically graspable, but totally comprehendable and achievable to the re-spirited mind of faith.

God uses words to uncloak Himself by His collection of words He calls His Son. This is the manna from heaven that gives life to the world. But don’t expect to pick it up from the ground like the Israelites. That too was just a snapshot and a parable of something we are to do by faith.

 John 1.1. “In the beginning was The Word, The Word was with God, and The Word was God. He was in the beginning with God”. Word is His pre-incarnate original substance.

Word is not to be interpreted physically but God specific, being pre-incarnate and eternal of things before creation. He is the collection of God’s things, broken down into sound bites called  words, for human consumption not to feed the body but the spirit of the mind. To become the things that He said, made known by revelations for us to be like Him being remanufactured with His things, His thoughts and His words. In the beginning that is all He was, and the Son declares this. We accept Him as He is and we are accepted. We are the elect.

This is why we are instructed to “put on Christ”. Because Christ was word before “He became flesh and dwelled among us”, that is what He returned to when He left. Because flesh is not a Heavenly composition, people saw only a peasant on a donkey when they saw Christ because the flesh vailed His Glory.  However there were those who saw past the vail and worshipped Him on a sorel horse whose garments were dipped in blood, having a name no human can pronounce, whose name is “The Word of God”. We the Elect are still pronouncing His name even today. We proclaim nothing new but are re-iterations of the things that He said of the “gospel once and for all delivered to the saints”.

We put on His Word to become like Him. This is how we follow Him to the Father. This is how “His word does not return void, but accomplished all His desire”. Word brings us to God with it. We return with Christ. “With my dead body they shall arise” and so we  did and you can too. (Isaiah 26.19) This too is a work of faith.

It was because Christ was a man and God, He shows us that it is possible to be full of God while we have our human bodies because “as He is so are we in this world” not how he was in the flesh but His current “as He is” seated eternal with the Father. We have this now.

As Paul said, we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the Glory and the Excellency may be of God and not ourselves. Do you hear that? Gods Glory and His excellence exuding through us? What a blessedness disguised in common looking people. For some, this may be the only glimpse of this kind of glory you will see this side of judgment.

Because”For in Him (Christ)  dwells the fullness of the God head body. And you are complete in Him who is the head of all principalities and powers”. If we have accepted the invitation to arise and seat with them in the heavenlies as spelled out by Paul in Ephesians 2. Above all powers and principalities in this age and every age”. This gift has already been given for the heaters who have faith to aquire. To cloth yourself with Christ. To put on the inner man who is made in the likeness of Christ of what we see in His Word.

In this way we are what we eat. To receive God as He is, being Word, is to commune with God. To eat of His flesh which are words on the pages consumed by our mind to be like Him. As Christ said “take and eat all of it”. And as the Israelites were instructed at their Passover to, eat it in haste. Or as Lot’s wife was turned to a pillar of salt because she didn’t leave the plains in haste. She lingered and became solidified, and solid God is not.

To have all things in common.

This is what commune means. This is true koinania obtained from the gospel through assorted revelations. This is what His word is about. Just as 1 John  says, That which was from the beginning, that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may commune with us, have oneness with us, to break bread with us; and truly our oneness is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. To be infused with and amalgamated to. To become inseparable and eternally one with Him who is everywhere. To take our stance with the rest of the elect, of the symposium of the spirits of just men made perfect. (Hebrews 12.22-23)

This is what it means to partake of Christ. To eat what He eats, and drink what He drinks of eternal things of the Father. This is to “drink it new in the Kingdom”speaking of the new wine of the “New Covenant” now in effect as evidenced at the cross, as we partake not of a body of flesh but of words, syllables and sayings. We become part of the body of Christ which has no physical members but being made up by stones that are “the measure of a man who is of an Angel”. (Revelation 21)

As Peter says “we are living stones built up a habitation of God in the spirit”, and need not to expect to have something physical. And we need not wait for a third Covenant or a new work because the second Covenant and the cross cannot be superseded, outdone, added to or retracted. It really is finished.

This is why we are called ambassadors. An ambassador is a representative of a kingdom or a culture. Someone cannot be called an ambassador if they had not been there otherwise they would just be a representative. But because we are “fellow citizens, saints and members of the household of God” we are ambassadors from the place we are from being “The kingdom of God at hand”, we have been given permission to say with Christ and the apostles, that “we speak what we see and we testify to what we hear”, showing that there’s a testimony of a reality that is not sensitive to the carnal senses. And to those who are getting this? We beckon you, come up hither. The rapture is not a physical one because “from dust you came, to dust you shall return. That is the demise of the body. We are talking of an event that happens “in the blink of an eye” quicker than humanly perceivable but completely assertainable.

For you have not come to a mountain that may be burned with fire, but you have come to Mount Zion, to the Heavenly City (and the true Jerusalem) to the general assembly and Church of the firstborn in the spirits of just men made perfect.” Take your seat here please. The price was paid with the most prescious blood. Do not despise the gift or insult the Giver.

Change your perspective.

A father is most pleased when his children do what he does. God made no beggars borrowers or thieves, God left us not on our knees but said follow me that where I am you may be also. Stand up and arise to your inheritance for the price was paid. “Walk in the spirit and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh”.

The father rejoices when those meet Him at the throne and join Him there because He is seated there waiting for His enemies to become his footstool, and because He has already defeated Satan sin and death at the cross, the only enemy that is left now are your doubts, fears and unbelief. God wants you to defeat these enemies with scripture and sit with the Father in the Heavenlies seeing eye to eye with Him. This is His desire. “It is the Father’s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom”. He has withheld nothing. “God has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness according to the knowledge of Him who calls us to glory by virtue”. By virtue that you know these truths.

When the enemy says “has God really said?” We say with a resounding  affirmative YES! And just like the walls fall down at Jericho, we enter into “The Kingdom of God at hand”. No other act but faith can accomplish this. Get up off your knees and stand up like a man. Just as Paul said, I reach out to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of me. Some of us have done that.

These are the elect. The Father sees a reflection of Himself in us and He is smiling. In this the father was well pleased and says, enter My joy you good and  full of faith steward, servant and beloved.

If God appears physically of things specific to the six day creation, God presents a false self. The creator cannot become the created. This is why He calls us to Himself. We are the ones that must change and His Word is the change agent. We do this one Revelation at a time, one manifestation after another untill we become “a perfect man” (Eph 4.13) Not masculine or feminine. These distinctions have no preference one over the other in God’s Kingdom. We are all one, equal and co-heirs of the things of God that are not of this creation.

Now “the whole creation groans and travails anticipating the manifestation of the children of God”. Why? Because that is the purpose of creation. Them. Us. This manifestation of individual manifestos of the Father is us because “as He is, so are we in the world”. There is no doubt about it, We are the Elect.

And because we take on the manifestations of God found in His Word and call them our own, we are joint heirs of the things “in Christ”. Our flesh cannot be re-created, we can only be converted to be His manifestations.

It is these revelations about God that make manifest the things of God to our understanding  so we can accept or reject God. And that is why the revelation of the Son of God, the Christ, is not of this creation. He said “you have rightly called me a King, but My Kingdom is not of this creation. If it were I would send my angels and they would fight, but My Kingdom is not from here”.

Even as Paul said “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but they are mighty through God for pulling down strongholds and every argument that exalts itself against the understanding of God” showing for us that God is elementally different. Even as he says,  “as the Heavens are higher than the Earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts are higher than your thoughts. His composition is out of reach for the external carnal senses to experience and the need for revelation.

That is why God is a manifestation and revelations made known by His Word and not composed of His six day creation. This is how and where God is unveiled, in the spirit of the mind and understanding. Which means to make known and open up to the regenerated mind of Faith the things that are God specific. And because God is “eternal, immortal and invisible, we should not expect Him to manufacture something of Himself with creation specific elements associated with time and matter, or he would lie by presenting a false image of himself of being something created, and God is not a creature, and a thing of creation cannot be God .

There are however countless other lower case gods that are doing that even to this day by taking on the responsibilities of God and associated with things of this age disguised in benevolence for redirecting human affections to themselves . These are the counterfeits. You will know them by their fruits. They are the pyramid people.

We are the elect, however they are the elect of another sort with all lying signs and wonders if possible to deceive, but not decieve the Elect.

So we must be more careful to distinguish between the created and the eternal so that we may more appropriately arise to our inheritance. Where? In our understanding in the spirit of our minds. In this way Gods things become our plug-n-play components that build us up, and the tools of our trade for acts of faith as more than touching the invisible but cohabitating with God now. We are owners, joint heirs of the things that God has said, that are in Christ and with the Father. That is where He is awaiting our arrival. Not physically but in spirit and truth. “For the time that is coming already is (John 4)

It is Gods things that are revealed to the elect, that are unveiled and manifest for our consumption that we may become more godly. This is how we are children of God and joint heirs of the things of God in Christ, our new abode. This is what defines a true Christian. Not a religion but an association with a new species in a New Kingdom with a New Covenant and New features being God Specific, that never fades, erodes, decays or changes, of things that are “in Christ”. We who are “in Christ” are in the forever new, the origination of His manifestations and revelations of the things He has said. He is the source

We are not created, we are manifestations and apocalypses of the things for us that are called the new creation, which are not new in the sense that they have never been. They are new in the sense in two terms. One is that those things which are eternal are eternally new and never getting old. They always shine in their eternal glory. It is with our mind that these are new because the mind had not experienced them before. Revelation and revealings are just showing us things that are hidden in Christ. And because in the beginning God created the heavens and earth and rested from them, he stepped back from them proverbially he stepped into himself and that is what Christ is. Hidden in Christ is the Godhead body and we are hidden in Christ as well.

We now are these manifestations, chips off the old block. We become his declarations because we cannot help but to speak what we see and testify to what we’ve head and seen of the things that are here in Christ.

He said “so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return to me void”. This is us who put on word. That is our departure and transportation mechanism to the Father. As scripture says, “we have been delivered from the power of darkness and have been translated into the Kingdom of the Son of His love”. Now the things of this world grow faintly dim in the light of His Glory and Grace. It is as we behold His Glory, we are transitioned by His Glory to become that Glory. (2 Corinthians 3.18) For this reason He is also called “The Father of Glories” and in this way we are His because He shared that with us.

When Paul was visited by Christ with” a light 7 times greater than the sun”, can you see that? It is an unearthly Glory beyond the veil of human perception. Are you becoming that Glory? The Father of Glories gives us this.

Epilogue

At the end of the book of the revelation of Jesus Christ which was written by John, of whom John was the closest disciple of Christ, having found his head in the bosom of our Lord, having known him better than any of the disciples.

John saw an angel and bent down to worship him thinking that this was Christ. Upon doing so this angel said to him “see that you  do not do that for I am one of thy brethren and one of those who keep the testimony of Jesus Christ worship Him, for the testimony of Christ is the spirit of prophecy.”

It is this one who John saw and John knew best, who saw something that eerily resembled Jesus Christ to the point that he thought it was Him and bowed to worship. And it is those who reach this stature who can say like “The Son” “he who has seen me has seen the Father” as being something invisible but totally attainable.

May we present to you this day that he was a manifest Elect of God. Showing for us that, our new body is not a gift given at some conclusion at the end of time but for those of us who obtain their fullness and likeness of Christ even now “each one in their own order” (1 Corinthians 15)

Step outside of your time and place association with matter while you are in your earthen vessels and fullfil the verse that says “as He is (now) so are we in the world.

Accept the gift, the price was paid. Take your rightful due not at the cross for sin and suffering but seated with the Father. Leave your crown of thorns and dead works and out on the crown of Glory given, “recieving the end of your faith, the salvation of your souls” and the complete your vows from baptism. To be buried with Him, and raised (resurrected) in newness of life now.

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.” Arise to your inheritance now for the time is short, and “today is the day of salvation” tomorrow you may not be so fortunate.

It was Enoch the 7th from Adam who said it first. That before this age slips away, while salvation is still in process, that there would be a throng of the firstfruits executing judgment on earth of those who have put on the gift, the fullness of Christ, taking on their rightful due of ruling with Christ and executing judgment on planet Earth to wrap up this age and initiate the closure of salvation saying ““Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him [e]be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” Where are you in the process?

For this age hastens to wrap up with a rapid fire succession of events designed to engulf the wicked, but we are in the eye of the storm and command center of all things, seated far above all powers and principalities where Christ says, all eyes on Me. We are the Elect.

For now “The Kingdom of God is still at hand”. Come up hither!

Believers in Christ start their journey with the word of faith. That if you believe in your heart, and confess with your mouth you shall be saved as it says in Romans 10. This was actually a quote by Paul from Deuteronomy 32 so this wasn’t new in Paul’s time. This is the Eternal Gospel.

It was at the end of Israel’s 40 years sentence in the desert, led by Moses that the gospel message was presented to them one more time. You see they had rejected it. The Lord told them they would spend one year in the wilderness for every day they rejected to go into the promise land. 40 years for 40 days of disobedience. Ouch!

It was Moses who led the Israelites the 40 years through the wilderness, who coming to the end of his life and the end of his tenure as leading the Israelites through folly. He asked the Lord if he could then go into the promise Land, their original destination they were denied. The Lord told him, No! You cannot go into the promise land, for at the fountain at Meribah you refused to hallow me to the tribes of Israel.

You see at Meribah Moses was instructed to do a Word of Faith by speaking to the Rock to get water. This he did not do. Instead of a work of Faith by speaking a command, he smote the rock with a stick. He turned a work of faith into a physical work done by man. He preferred his physical instruments rather than the tools of our trade which is word. God’s word.

This is the reason why all the children of Israel did not complete their cross over except Joshua, Caleb and the new generation born after the rebellion. At the end of the 40 years many were over 80 years old and still children in faith.  They just could not grow up. They failed to repudiate their past behavior and remained unchanged by their encounter with God and the events leading up to the Red Sea crossing. They continued to live their life the way they did before by the Adamic curse by working by the sweat of their brow.

Their journey started out of Egypt through the Red Sea where they were delivered from slave labor and all of their monsters and boogie men were drowned in the water. But they just could not accept that fact, retaining their lower nature of fear they invented new monsters and complained about everything. For this they were denied. They could not rise above their carnal nature and use their inheritance of Faith, the unseen substance of God’s provisions called “the Word of Faith”.

This is the reason why today many people live in defeat. Without knowing how to impliment faith by trusting God and applying His word, they use the world’s bandaids and solutions instead and say “in Jesus name”. This is a sort of blasphemy. It not His fault your remedies don’t work. He did not sanction it or they would’ve. If your prayers and efforts don’t work, you have to recalibrate your beliefs because the Lord says “I do not change”. He is a constant and we are being change, providing we hear the Holy Spirit. (2Corinthians 3.18)

James says “you have not because you ask not, and when you do ask, you do so to fulfill your flesh”. Meaning you use your heavenly powers to feed your lower nature. That is not what God’s provisions are for. And then you murmur and complain because you didn’t get the thing you asked for. Who does that sound like? The Israelites and the Jews of the bygone age.

The Elect have been given the ability to create by faith. James goes on to say “you ask and you don’t receive because you seek to consume it by your carnal nature”. Showing what the obstacle is.

If you approach God as a beggar or a borrower would, you insult the Gift and the Gift Giver. We have been given “love, power and a sound mind. And “we have the mind of Christ”. This is how you address the Father. This is what it means to pray “in Christ’s name”. For even the angels in heaven see the face of the Father in these little ones” who act like this. This is how we know we are His because He said “ask anything in My name and I will do, that the Father may be Glorified” through us by doing so.

If the Israelites would have used these tools of faith in the Son of God to impliment their eternal inheritance, they wouldn’t have had so many problems.

Like the children in the wilderness, there are many who are bound by fears like “the end times” as a reason to be inactive and don’t know that the command was given not to harm the earth till God writes His name on our foreheads. We are on a mission, a journey. This is why we are called pilgrims.

If Moses would have spoken to the Rock an invisible word to bring forth the provisions of God, the 40 years of wandering would not have happened. But they failed to use their crossover tools of Gods word applied by the believer by faith. As Joshua and Caleb said “if God gave us something, we are more than able to possess it. As 2 Peter says, God has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness, and we are partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. What are we waiting for to impliment the gift of eternal life?

As Christ shows us in His wilderness trial where Satan tempted Him, each temptation was met with these words saying, no for it is written. Then He proceeded to quote scripture, showing us how to conquer our oun wilderness testings. With scripture. That we may be found faithful to stand behind the sheild of this kind of faith and ward off all the fiery darts as Paul teaches in Ephesians 6

This is how faith works, but it is only faith when the facts and the physical findings are contrary to the unctions of the Holy Spirit. This is why “the carnal mind in enmity against God. It is not subject to the laws (ways) of God and neither can be. So those who are in the flesh, cannot please God”.

Like David said in the Psalms, and Paul quoted later in Corinthians, We Believe therefore we speak. It is believing a thing of Gods that is in scripture and speaking it, that the thing that is believed becomes the thing that is said. This is our new reality in spirit and truth. Kind of like when God said “let there be light” and there was light. Or when Christ said to Lazarus “rise up and walk” so we do.

Gods promises are implemented in this age in this way. As Paul said “all the promises of God are yes and Amen in Christ”. To be implimented in any age,

The writer of Hebrews said of Moses generation. 16 For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses? 17 Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not believe? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.”

After the 40 years in the wilderness, Moses was able to see the land of promise from Mt Nebo, but died there, having not receiving the promises because he did not understand that what he was shown portayed something invisible. This is what they all overlooked.

We see with Joshua, for whom it was promised that he would lead them into the land. It was at Jericho that the walls fell not with a stick, or of any of man’s devising, but with the shouts of faith. And because of this, with Joshua they were all able to cross over, defeat their enemies and advance to their inheritance. (Figuratively speaking) all participated. So must you to be counted as faithful.

The promise land symbolized receiving our inheritance in Christ, the true prize as described by Paul who said “ all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ”. Showing for us that the things they had were only physical toys that shadowed the things that are invisible, of things in Christ. That is why they were referred to as “children” a couple thousand times in the old covenant. Even after they wandered 40 years, they had not developed in faith so they could not conclude their journey and obtain the prize. Even so today many do not aquire the gift given but remain in their carnal estate. As James said, let Faith have its perfect work that you may be full and complete and lacking nothing, showing that our trials have an end. And even with Peter who said “after you have suffered a while, may God perfect establish strengthen and settle you” and so he does. That’s what the gospel is all about. And from Peter again, receiving the end of your faith the salvation of your soul.

Baptism

The physical expression of faith of the New Covenant established by Christ and our crossover point today is baptism, whereby you profess that your old person died with Christ at the cross, being washed away, you now walk in newness of life. Your new form of life should be your proof. The cross of Christ is our crossover point from here to there, to where He is. This is symbolized by Him taking our crown of thorns indicative of the curse from Eden to exchange our crown for His. The price was paid. You must press on to lay hold of this with persistence and the impliments of faith, being the Holy Spirit and Gods Son called the Word of God broken down into words called the gospel, for our implimentation. Has God really said ? With an astounding shout we say YES! And the walls fall down between here and there and we cross over.

Romans

To obtain these things we say You must continue in a walk of faith being pilgrims and sojourners following Christ by doing what He does and going where He goes. He said, “follow me that where I am you may be also”. And so we do. We go to places feet can’t take you. Because in the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word was God. To follow Christ, Gods Word, you must put on Christ one word at a time and one attribute at a time to be rewarded by the Father of Glory. You must be renewed in the spirit of your mind to become word. God’s Word is His Son, Him put put on in the loins of our mind. And those that do this? These are the elect. They arrive at a full stature in the family of God. Ephesians 4.13

We do this by the transfiguration by the Holy Spirit, one Revelation at a time until our realization is fully awakened to the things of God. These things are given to us, to be with Him where He is, one with the Father, seated at His own right hand, having dominion over all powers and principalities, in this age and every age, seated in the heavens in glory, the origination and destiny of our calling. In Christ, fully reconciled to the Father.

We do this one step at a time, adopting each of the several attributes by owning them to be with Them. This is the true reconciliation given to us. Even as Paul said “be reconciled to the Father! He made Him who knew no sin, to become our sin, for us to become the righteous of God like Him. Owning and possesing everything the Son has with us being joint heirs now of the things that God has.

This is why we put on Christ. In the loins of the mind we become godly by cloaking ourselves with these invisible attributes defined by Word, to be like Him. In doing so we make our calling and election sure and receive an open door to His Kingdom even as we speak. 2 Peter 1.10-11

God is invisible spirit and truth, and seeks such. Such are we. Him is what we get. In this way the scripture is fulfilled in us that says “when we see Him, we become like Him”. And so we do. We  see Him who is eternal, immortal, invisible.  Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hebrews 13.8 His flesh was temporary. In the beginning He was Gods invisible Word. That is what He is still today.

Now the word is true that says “the world does not know us because they  did not know Him.” And they did not know Him because they could not see Him who is invisible, as He is. They thought he was human. Because seeing with their eyes they see not.  And hearing with their ears they hear not. It is with the heart that one must see and hear to understand the things of God. This they did not. But we do.

Our invisible part called our soul and heart is the only invisible thing that we have to interact with the living God. We impliment this with our invisible word of faith to reverberate the words that we heard showing we received the things the He said. He says many things, but just gives us one thing. Himself. He is described through the many words. These words reassembled become Word. This is our work today. To reassemble His truths inside ourselves to be like Him. One word and one Revelation at a time until our journey is complete. And we can accomplish this before our carnal nature dies.

This kind of faith is our invisible embelical cord to the invisible God for the transferance of the things He has said, from Him to us, to whom we aspire. His inspiration is our perspiration, a sweet savory scent to the Father is the Son. Paul put it like this “14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us [d]diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. 

Because of this “we are the temple of the living God”. And as Paul pleaded to be reconciled to the Father, this we have done. This is how you know that you are the elect. You have been rescripted by scripture, reprogrammed and wired, reformatted and fitted to interact with the living God through Word, unhindered by your carnal nature. This is the full reconciliation and full salvation as our objective as prayed here by Paul in Colossians 1.28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. 29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily”. And so we do.

Let us go up from here. Let us, the called, the eklesia, understand more clearly our profession of baptism. That we may more clearly understand what we’ve crossed over to possess. So that we may understand more clearly what we are able to do. And as Paul had prayed, to know the power that is resident in each one of us. This great power that was displayed in Christ when He was raised from the dead, and seated at the Father’s own right hand, far above all powers and principalities in this age and every age. Ephesians 1.17+ This power given to us to accomplish the same thing as the first born. This power vested in us through faith to obtain the glory that “as He is, so are we in this world”. Not as He was when He put on flesh and dwelled among us, but as He is even now. Isn’t this what Christ asked of the Father? Father that those whom you have given Me to be with Me where I am. I with You, You with Me, them with us that the world may know. (John 17) Did the Father deny that request? And “Father, that those you have given Me, I have given them My glory. That they may be one with us.” The Father honored that request as well.

This is the good news. This is the gospel of the Christ of the cross and only savior. There is no future saving to supercede this.

We are just the reitterations of the Father. Those who follow the Lamb. Us to whom He said “greater works shall you do because I go to the Father and you see me again no more”. He is now seen as He is. He is the Word we become. As 1 John 3 says “when we see Him, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And so we did and now fulfill the verse that says “the world does not know us because they do not know Him”. We are the elect.

The Kingdom of God is at hand, fully functionable and operational today. Glory to God.

Amen

 

12 Here is the [g]patience of the saints; here[h] are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying [i]to me, “Write:‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’ ”

“Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.”

*The Shield of Faith*

Download PDF

NKJV Genesis 15.1 The Lord came to Abraham saying “I am your Shield, your exceedingly great reward.” Throughout history Abraham is referred to as the father of faith. Abraham passes on to us the Promises given to him by the Lord.


When God gave promise to Abraham saying, “I am your Shield your exceedingly great reward,” those who believe in like manner have this promise as well.


What makes His Shield exceedingly great is that it is far superior to all the shields of this world. If God made a shield, or a force field, what could get past Him as though you could sneak up behind Him? What could penetrate or void His terms and conditions? What could negate God’s obligation to perform His word over and above Him? As if there is something or someone  more powerful than God? Our faith is our only obstacle to implementing His words. You doubt His Word and seek protection elsewhere.


The term “Shield” was used because that was the common vernacular of the day. When a soldier went out to battle, it was his Shield that would protect him and ward off all the fiery darts. Even as Paul said in Ephesians 6. 16 to “put on the shield of Faith which is able to ward off all the fiery darts of the wicked.” Other Shields are not able to do this. This is what Paul was referring to. The shield of faith. This is what Abraham received when God explained it to him.

 ­This Shield of faith is an invisible force field, able to throw off all the fiery darts of the wicked. It is able to also put us outside of harm’s reach of many other things. It is equal to our participation in our personal sanctification. Which is? To abstain and purify ourselves from the counterfiet provisions of today.


When Christ prayed to the Father in John 17.16 to keep His people from evil, the Father answered that prayer then because He always heard the Only Begotten. John 11.42


Christ defined those who were recipients of this sanctification saying, “Father these whom you have given Me are not of this world just as I am not of this world.” (John 17.14) We are distinguished from those of this world because we are cloaked with Gods word, which is eternally greater than the protectors and providers the world  has. All of Gods promises are summed up in this one saying, “I will never leave you or forsake you. (Hebrews 11.42) What better protection can you get? God wants us to have full assurance and reliance in Him and on Him. He doesn’t need any help. What ever we face, God has it covered. He has it covered for the whole world. 1 John 2.1 

Our Shield is our dependency in God to make good on His Word of shielding and protecting us from the evils of this world and fulfilling His word, which He does. God is faithful to His faithful to the uttermost. We are those “who follow the lamb where ever He goes”. (Revelation 14.4)

What does this all mean? Simply this, if you put on the force fields and shields of this age to provide and protect instead of Gods, you are committing spiritual adultery.  Spiritual adultery sets you outside of the safety of God’s promises and His Shield of faith. Sounds crazy, but the choice is yours.You can be in God’s good hands, or in the not so good hands of a counterfeit coverage provider.

Like Christ spoke to the church of Laodicea, Revelation 3.17 “Because you say, ‘I am rich, I have become wealthy, and I have need of nothing (because you cover yourself with worldly provisions) But you do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked’ and outside of the protection of God. So it is with many professing professing faith in God today. They don’t have much to offer that differentiates themselves from the world or other religions.but having faith in Christ is not a religion it’s a new creation, so our wares and our solutions are different. as the heavens are higher than the earth so God’s ways are higher than man’s ways.We the elect are in the world but not of the world so our association is not as such.

We are Complete in Him part 1

Download PDF

“We are complete in Him who is head over all powers and principalities”. There is nothing else, and no one else who completes us. You can fortify yourself against the objects of  your fears, but they are still there. There is only one true consolation. The fear of dying is the enemy. Fear is the poison that kills spiritual growth. Death is not so much a one time event of being dead, but a life driven by fear, that causes one to be dead to the provisions from God, gifted to us by His promises in His Son, to be truly free from all fears because “he who fears has not been made perfect in love because fear involves torment”. That’s the fruit given to those who reject Gods covenental provisions. So they turn to the world for comfort and forget the One who is in control.

We see the effects of fear in the parable of the unjust steward who collected funds from his employers accounts to protect himself against joblessness homelessness and fortify his retirement. He said “I have resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses”. He was afraid to be without so He created a back-up plan, a retirement plan. This is the product of self-consciousness. We see a brick wall and we don’t know what is on the other side so we protect ourselves against this fear. “He who seeks to save his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for Christ sake will save it”. This is what we are talking about. When you run to the end of your account avigo it is expired. However we can never deplete the resources of the almighty God who said “let there be light” and immediate it appeared without resistance.

There are many who pursue to save the planet and are ignorant of Him who can recreate this with the same simple words. They spend their time and their estimation doing whst they think is good when the good that they do is ignorance of him who did it all.

 

Romans 1 says of these people 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. Creation serves the creator just fine even now by mirroring to humans the conditions of their hearts.

 

 

“If you understand Gods never ending love, and his inexhaustible resources, you can relax your grip on this age and fall into the hands of the almighty God who eagerly awaits you to do so. God said “I will never leave you or forsake you”. But some just cannot have solace in that. So they depart to look for another. This is spiritual adultery that causes blindness to Him who is “at hand”.

So speaking of the wise steward”For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light.“And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by unrighteous[d]mammon, that when[e]you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home.”

Fear is the abscence of faith. Your faith has trade in value. But you must let go of your fears to recieve the exchange. If you truly trust God, you don’t need a dependance on a back-up plan. He who said “I will never leave you or forsake you” need not come back in the flesh a second time as a man to fulfill His Word in us. We are complete in Him, if you can receive it. The price was paid at the cross to reverse the curse and undo the fear based mind that started with Adam who said to the Lord “I heard your voice and was afraid”. God knew this would happen. Adam tried to cover it with a fig leaf, and people today are covering themselves with all kinds of things. But the words of job was, Naked I came naked I go, blessed be the name of the Lord.

The truth is God sees through all of our fig leaves and coverings anyway. For the word of the Lord is sharp and Powerful sharper than any two-edged sword dividing even bone and Marrow joints and ligaments it is a discerner of the thoughts of the intent of the heart. Then there is nothing hidden from the site with him with whom we have to do. Hebrews 4:12.

You cannot be afraid and trusting God at the same time. Consider the old women who donated her two mites, or in our culture, pennies. That was all she physically had, but for us the elect? She truly trusted in God and was spoken of for our guidepost. Not that God is asking us to live without money, but not to put too much trust in the uncertainty of riches.

The day we have the most money, in the day we have none should be equally joyous. Like the Widow with the two mites, she knew that the greatest joy comes Not from without but from within. Just as it said it’s in the book of James That every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of Lights in whom there is no variableness nor shadow of turning.

Christ “has delivered us who all our lifetimes had been subject to the fear of death”. We fear no more. And this fear of death is not a one-time dying but the continual dying and losing of self and the things we seem important. Do not be deceived we will all lose this body we eroniously call ourself and all its physical attachments. Every promise and provision from the god of this age will fail. You cannot stay here. You will lose that self by degree one death at a time. Or you will grow in the Spirit by degree one revelation at a time. And it is Gods word that is our food for our transformation. That we may participation of the things the God. It is the god of this age competes with the things of “hath God really said?” For our intellect to challeng. And if God said it, repeat it over and over until you get it. This is your struggle. It must become you.
Every time we come to this point in our inner dialogue where fear reminds us of our frailties, it is here that we can grab a hold of something Eternal by faith, or turn in fear and fortify the thing that’s dying.
Everything that we do for health care and for retirement to fortify our position here are provisions for the God of this age.
James says “Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you!Your riches [a]are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire”. Who knows my friend if you will be around to spend your retirement. It my temporarily give you peace of mind, but that might be all you get. We are instructed to store up things not on Earth where moth and rust in thieves steal, but the store up our Treasures in heaven.
 
For the Elect? “We have a more enduring inheritance in heaven”. He who loves the world, the love of the father is not in him. We put on the things that God has given us we see in His Son.
So when the scriptures say that “Christ came to deliver us from the subjection of the fear death? We put this on. This is how we appropriate this.  At that moment of fear, we step on that fear and replace it with faith. We reiterate the promise that we have a more enduring inheritance in heaven.
If this more enduring inheritance was only something to be experienced later, then it would be harder to hold out for. But because Christ has suffered at the cross for us, having taken away all the criticisms and condemnations aimed at us from the law, he shows for us here that because the payment is rendered in full, the gift is activated. Gods Word has no time lapse. For this very reason not only does the fullness of the godhead body dwell in him, but we are complete in him who is the head over all principality and power. Meaning we are not waiting for something to come later. We are not exchanging one physical element for another physical. No these things are sewn corruptible raised Incorruptible in the spirit of our mind, which is the place of our new existence. “That which is flesh is flesh, that which is spirit is spirit. You must be born again. This is how that happens.
And as we’ve spoken many times before that the heavens that are carnally known as being filled with stars and galaxies, is not as large as the expanse of our mind which grows bigger and bigger by the expansion of the Holy Spirit. And even as a worm cannot understand the life and flight of a butterfly, so then those who are driven by fear and controlled by fear and fortify themselves from that fear, cannot know or understand the life in flight of those who were born of the spirit.
Christ said “Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” Such are we. We are not fortified here of the promises of the God of this age for the supplements of this age, oh no. Every time we have a fear, we offer up to God his Son, the only sacrifice that is acceptable to Him. His son is Word. He was the word broken down forethe promises of God in Scripture to find root in the linings of your heart and soul.
When the fear comes you offered that promise to God showing you are the sons of God. In this way we are shown to follow the spirit of God and confirm our identity as his children. He came to deliver those who are all their lifetime subject to the fear and the fear of death, we no longer fear those things. We no longer spend our times or fortifying our self against the inevitability that we will lose our external self. Even now we participate in the richness of our inheritance of the things of God.
So if we lose ourselves in Christ, we gain everything Eternal. For what profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his soul? Nothing
It is those who have gained everything of this age that have nothing in the other. It is those of us who have no realiance in this age that have everything in the other age now. Just as Christ was seen by some as a peasant on a donkey riding up to Jerusalem, but He was filled with the fullness of the Godhead.
It is we who are walking incognito, have Gods things that the glory and the essence we participate in may be of God and not of ourselves. Even as scripture instructs “since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised”. We are renewed in knowledge to be just like Christ in our understanding.  Don’t let the peasant fool you.
We have traded physical things for invisible things and only those of us who are Spirit born again can master this.
For those who are looking for a physical mastery? It doesn’t happen. So many would say to us as well, who are you? And our answer to that is, not the man. Not what you’re looking at. These things are hidden from your site. Go on and sleep, the time is near.

Even now, The Kingdom of God is at hand.

*The only righteous act

Download PDF

The righteous Act was the right deed done to erase the wrong. What then is wrong deed, and what is the right deed that corrected the wrong? This is righteousness.

Romans 5 put it like this, that through the one man (Adam) sin entered creation and death spread to all of humanity. And that just has through one man’s act of sin, sin spread throughout Humanity. So too through one man’s righteous act life spreads to those who receive it , who recieve Christ. He is the gift of God by  being His right deed accredited to us on our behalf to undo the ill effects of the fall.

In this way we share in His life and are now exonerated from the death that was passed on to us by Adams wrongful act. We have a new nature with a new heritage. Our association is no longer in Adam but “in Christ”. This is why “all things are made new in Christ”. We are “a new creation in Christ” in this way.

Christ’s righteous singular act that He did was to undo the Adamic curse and to free would be believers from the death of being dead to the things of God. As God said to Adam “in the day you eat of it you shall die” and he did. So for us in the day we partake of Christ we live. We are “in that day” the Day of our Lord.

All those born according to Adam are born dead to the things of God. They cannot see or hear Him who knocks on the door of their invisible  heart. An invisible God requires an invisible response of what we call Faith, which is our invisible imbecilic cord to the living God. These are the things that are intangible to the carnal senses of hearing sight sound and touch, but insurmountably more real to us the elect.

All those who receive Christ in His original construct being “The Word of God” of pre-incarnate spirit and truth, are born of a new creation having eyes to see and ears to hear of a different nature. These are God’s people, the elect and the true Israel of God the one on earth only mimicked, defined  in Galatians 6

15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation. 16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, upon the Israel of God.” Such are we. We are that New Creation.

It is those who have this new nature that have a different understanding of the Israel of God. A heavenly one. 

Christ is able to save to the uttermost those who come to him. And just as Moses instructed the people to look at the snake on the pole to be saved, we look back to the cross to see our sin and our old enemy the devil hanging lifelessly there. The cross is the one single saving Act of God. Christ did this to produce true righteousness that is able to save equally those who look forward to the cross and us to look back to that saving savior.  It was “God who made him who knew no sin, to become sin, for us to be the righteousness of God in Him”. And so He did. “Therefore be ye reconciled to the father!” And so we are.

 

There is not going to be another saving act or another savior to supersede or add on to this rightly done deed finished at the Cross. Christ’s completed and fulfilled act.

Even as 2nd Peter says that all the Earth and all its Works shall be burned with fire so that true righteousness remains. True righteousness is now, but then it will be without competition.

You see the curse is not something imposed by God on mankind, but the result of mankind operating  contrary to their god-given nature of “having dominion over all the earth in cohesion with the living God”. It is that Creation responds negatively to fallen thinking.  This is the curse. They have  backwards, upside down thoughts. This is why the carnal mind is enmity against God and not subject to the invisible laws of God.

The things mankind was given power over then saying “go forth and have dominion”, now has power over them saying “by your sweat you shall work the Earth with a curse . They were created to live in fellowship and constant non-stop communion with the Creator and His creation,  but now they serve creation and remain ignorant of Him who said “lo I am with you through all the ages” and “Goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life”.

The curse is upside-down thinking.

You see God did not curse mankind. They violated the natural laws programmed into the creation by the Creator of “everything being good very good” and walking backwards,  much like going the wrong way down a one way street, being oppositional they experience the curse. This is what it means when the disciples were inquiring about the Tower of Siloam that fell on many people. He said “unless you repent (to turn and change your polarity from cursing to blessing) this will likewise happened to you, Showing the need for a polarity change from cursing to blessing to escape this pending self inflicted doom caused by a man and not God. And since it was caused by a man, only a man could undo the curse of pending doom called death.

This is why the pre-existant Son of God “became flesh and dwelled among us”. To jump start a new humanity of those “in Christ”. To supercede fallen humanity with those of the resurrection. For this reason we are offspring of the resurrection of spirit and truth, buried in baptism and raised in newness of life now. We are the elect.

The work of Christ performed the polarity shift, the blessing for cursing as signified by the crown of thorns, a dirrect reference to working the earth and yeilding thorns and thistles from the fall. Hence the need to repent. Turn the other way with right thinking.  To return to God in this way. That is what repent means.

Adam turned away from God.  And when he turned, he did not get the next best thing,  he got the exact opposite, and imposed that spiritual posture on humanity. To all those born of his kind having only carnal perceptions saying “seeing with their eyes they see not, and hearing with their ears they hear not.  But the elect of God have both sets of perceptions. We have a God consciousness.

We are not God, but having every thing that God has by being joint heirs of the gift of God in Christ now even in this age.

It was Adam who turned from a God consciousness to a self consciousness. He became afraid and detached from God in his thinking. He became empty first in his self conscious mind. Then he felt naked and guilty for the first time and wanted to hide the lonliness and emptiness. This is a great void in the mind and heart that many try to fill today with countless pleasures and addictions. These are also classified as idolatrous and adulterous toward God because that expanse was intended for His Holy Spirit but now filled with vain repetitions.

Those of us who hear the heavenly voice repent and turn the other way, to Faith in the Living God in the spirit of the Mind which is the place of mankind’s departure and the place of our return and resurrection.

The curse is gone, condemnation is gone, the devil is de-fanged. We accept God in the spirit of the mind and are made whole.

The law culture that was given was  to amplify mankinds nakedness and sin. It is this nakedness and sin that was nailed to the cross. We apply this with our thinking and behavior through the working of faith. In Colossians it says “ in whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12 buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 blotting out all the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took them all out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15 having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”

The laws we thought to bring righteousness showed us to be wrong and brought us to our reality of who we are without God, crippled and spiritually bereft. As Paul said”Oh wretched man that I am. Who shall deliver me from the law of sin and death? Who shall over ride my self infliction? He then answered himself on our behalf saying ” there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ who walk by the prompting  of the spirit and not the flesh.

 

Through the gift of righteousness of the one man who was the Word of God first, who became flesh, a man to undo the upside down thinking of those departing from God.

 

Christ secured our safe return by giving us the gospel of which you are now hearing. Sin no longer has dominion, or power over us. It cannot control us. It has no ill effects to us and creation for us is restored to that from the beginning which is “good, very good” if we can receive it by faith. Why? Because all the ill effects of mankinds stupid thinking is grounded out at the cross. “On him was laid the iniquity of us all”.

This is why we see The lamb of God in heaven is The center piece of the Throne room, not Budah, Muhammad or a second coming Jesus. There belongs glory to none other. Revelation 5.1-10

The lighting strike that was looking for us, landed on Him. And Christ did this willingly for you when you were enemies, to have life and life more abundantly. To share in His victory and the pleasures He enjoys today is our bounty and our abundance now.  Life more abundantly.

“God sent His Son into the world not to condemn it, but to save it. But He did not come to change the earth but our thinking because it was our thinking that fell. His act at the cross provided all the saving for all time for anyone willing to receive the free gift. He delt with satan, sin and death to longer associate with that. He is now seated waiting for us to join Him. And He has given us that victory through the conduit called the gospel.  We learned to appropriate it by faith for our own victory so that we don’t have to fight with Satan, sin and death anymore.

 

It is the gospel that is the power of God into salvation  and not a 2nd coming. (Romans 1.16)

 

The one saving act of the cross has no encore performance. No need to repeat or ensue anymore battles, but is secure for us in complete victory “waiting for His enemies to be defeated not by another work on His part, but by yours by adopting him and putting on his attributes as defined through the gospel and in this way we put on Christ the son of God the word of God. This is our responsibility and sum duty for our sojourners here.

This is true righteousness gifted to us who believe and the only true righteousness. As 1st John says “little children, we are righteous even as He is righteous” because He is the source of righteousness.  His one saving act of the cross. The lamb of God who takes away the sin of humanity to all who accept His righteousness.  His righteousness is now our righteousness.

Whenever lightning is aimed our way, we point to Him. He righted all the wrongs. Righteousness prevails.

The Kingdom of God is at hand even now.

 

New Covenant Kingdom

Each culture has defining features that are unique to it. It is made up of specific components like land defined by borders, a language, with leaders and a legal system to implement the laws that are specific to it. They generally have memorial celebrations to pass on to subsequent generations the things that make them unique. They define, renew and insure their identity. Change these and that people will cease to exist.

An important feature of many nations is a foundational document called a constitution. Constitution is a big word for ingredients. It defines what the citezines are made up of. These people are called constituents. They contain the ingredients in themselves as defined by their constitution that make them unique. Take away these ingredients and you change the people. You have a new constituency and a different people. People who are made up of different laws and values.

This is what Christ did. He came preaching “The Kingdom of God is at hand “. He was the revolutionary creating a new constituency of a new constitution called The New Covenant. The book of Hebrews says “this was first spoken by the Lord and confirmed by those who heard it.” He spoke first something different from the old covenant a new message to a new people. Such are we who are this new constituency being ingredients of The New Covenant founded on better promises than the old covenant. (Hebrews 8.6)

And the proof that it is something new and distinguishable different? Christ said “All the law and the prophets were till John. Now the Kingdom is preached and all are entering”. With these words He drew the proverbial line in the sand between His Kingdom and the kingdom of Israel and Jerusalem on earth. He was the demarcation line between the old Jewish kingdom and the new Covenant Kingdom of God in Christ that “cometh not with observation”. (Luke 27.22)

The phrase “The Kingdom of God is at hand” started then and was never retracted. A covenant is not in force till the death of the testator. Christ went to the cross for this cause. With His death the New Covenant is in force and the heirs receive their inheritance and need not wait for another saving.

The New Covenant is emphatically in force. (Hebrews 9+). The old reached its culmination to bring us to the New. Christ is the sole mediator for this New creation and needs no help from the prophets of the old whom He replaced. (Hebrews 1.1)

Peter said of the prophets “Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, meaning not to the prophets, but to us[b] they were ministering the things”. Here distinguishing the two covenants.

“All (of the old) law and the prophets were till John”? Christ introduces a new constitution for a new constituency of those born with ingredients of the Word and of the Spirit. “He came to His own and His own did not accept Him, but to as many as receive Him, to them He gave power to become His Children, even to those who believe in His name. And also “of those born among women there is none greater than John the baptist.  But he who is least in the New Covenant Kingdom is greater than he.” Who? Greater than John the Baptist or any other prophet for John was the greatest of them.

The “New Covenant” people, are different from the old. A new people with a new make up, distinguishably different from the old. The old was written on tablets of stone and the New on tablets of the heart. (2 Corinthians 3.3)

We are not of the circumcision of the flesh but the heart. The differences have no parallels. The old depicts the New only with contrasts. The law of sin and death in contrast to “The Spirit of life that is in Christ”. The operative here is “in Christ” not in Jerusalem on earth. These too are contrasts. This is “rightly dividing the word of truth”. And “if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law. The culture of the law only mirrors the truth in contrasts. Opposites. “The law having shadows of these things but not the essence” (Hebrews 10.1)

Scripture says that Christ is the new mediator of a new covenant founded on better promises” than the old. In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away. (Hebrews 8.13). That happened with the destruction of Jerusalem which was overturned by Titus.

The old was made up of artifacts of a bygone age founded on temporary fixes and band-aids designed to “make sin exceedingly sinful”. To make us good and dead till Christ.

At the proclamation that “The Kingdom of God is at hand” the deterioration of the old commenced. And if the changes to the Jerusalem of old were to be minor, He would have just had painted the buildings and maybe replaced the roof, but because the changes were so drastic and diametrically opposite, everything had to be redone. “Till not one stone shall be left upon another” was the Jerusalem’s demise (Mt 24.1). When Christ was on the cross, the physical temple was cracked so violently from the top to the bottom that the earth quaked and the bedrock shifted.  (Mt 27.52) Yes clear through the foundation showing it unsafe for use of any sort. That is why scripture says “old things have passed away, all things have become new.” It is irreversible.

This expiration of that kingdom was so completely fulfilled, expired and put out of business so much so in fact that all debts were paid and the books were balanced and closed. And because that kingdom and all the Jews so emphatically rejected the New King of a New Kingdom, the New Law and the New Law giver and the New Mediator of The New Covenant, but of them? “There were none righteous, no not one” Romans 3.10. So on them was laid all the guilt for all the wrong doing, murders and deaths of all the prophets from Able till then. Why? Because there was not one prophet they listened to. Even as the people said “He is not my king, crucify Him”. And so they did. And so for this they were judged, condemned and annihilated. In this way they rejected the chief cornerstone. They were not recipients of the gift of God but His wrath. The books were settled, the wages of sin were paid. God owes them nothing He hasn’t already given them. God was patient, that none would perish but there was none righteous, their time of visitation had come. The Jews and Jerusalem are no more. They are fulfilled. Meaning, expired, shelved and put away saying. Now it is said “28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus”. Galatians 3. Jews have no preferential treatment.

She was found in total contempt as seen here.“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were not willing! 35 See! Your house is left to you desolate; Meaning condemned, kaput, closed for business, out of commission.

The buildings and the streets were so turned over and so unrecognizable that there was no distinguishing features left. The people were ravaged, killed and trapped in that city because they rejected The King. Josephus and other historians from that era speak of the hellish horror they experienced while they ate each others flesh and gnashed their teeth in pain while Jerusalem was surrounded by armies. They knew not their time. “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, do not go back in your house to retrieve a coat”. The Jews are gone,. That kingdom was demolished. It was condemned, put out of business and replaced.

You see the law was added only till faith comes and in the fullness of time God sent forth His Son born of a women to redeem those from the law. There is therefore no need for that law and the culture associated with it. It served its purpose of “making sin exceedingly sinful”. To go back to that is like jumping back into the pan on the fire for it will reap the same reward of rejecting the Savior. But many do just that as they look to another coming Jesus and another fulfillment of a Jerusalem and view scripture the same way as the Jews of old were condemned for. But “we have come to know and believe that Christ came to expire and replace the Old Covenant with the New covenant and New Kingdom of God in Christ. We the elect have received it. The rest were hardened. They like the old wine better for “no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.”  The Old verse the New. You choose.

When you take away the law and the prophets, we see that whole culture unraveled and replaced. But for those of us who know? it was “sown corruptible raised incorruptible, It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body”. (1 Cor 15. 44+). “In Spirit and truth”.

All the components of that culture were mutually dependent upon each other. You take away the law and the rest falls apart like liquefying bones and the body ,falls to the ground. You see that was the culture held spellbound to sin and death. With all the laws, feasts and sacrifices they were held in guilt and condemnation. That is why there is no condemnation to those who walk not by that law but by the spirit of the New Covenant. What the law couldn’t do, God did by sending His Son in the likeness of man, He condemned sin in the flesh with its culture and artifacts. Romans 8. This is the good news. The old was the gospel of death. With the cross death was paved over. That is why believers are “baptized into His death to walk in newness of life”. This is the gospel. The good news. Unless you are baptized in vain.

When Christ was speaking a parable of Jerusalem at the fig tree, upon seeing no fruit He said “let no fruit grow on you no more forever”, showing the eternal finality of the Jews judgment. He could not have said that if it was not true. They were condemned fulfilled, expired and tore down “till not one stone was left upon another. Woe to those who rebuild that abomination (that makes desolate), and they do “whose coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

It is to take all the law and the prophets and that whole culture that Christ expired, being fulfilled, filled to the full. To reject the New King in His New Covenant Kingdom, then revert to the old and rebuild that is the epitome of rejecting Christ, despising His blood by rebuilding the things He replaced. They reject the New wine saying the old is better.

With lying signs and wonders, the implementation of fulfilled scripture for another coming kingdom. Christ rejected such a notion saying of His Kingdom that “it cometh not with carnal observation”. And those who say that it does? Christ said “do not follow them!”. (Luke 17.22). But so these persist and will receive the same condemnation. Woe! See that you do not refuse Him who speaks from heaven! The very thing the Jews rejected, so these do too today and they will receive the same judgment.

The purpose to replace the old was so important that Christ gave His life for that cause. Woe to those who despise His blood in hopes of rebuilding the old kingdom and implement the old sacrifices and those who help them. But for those who accept the New? We bear not our own judgment like they did but “On Him was laid the iniquity of us all and by His stripes we are healed”. For those who deny Him receive their own death and condemnation, but for us He diffuses ours.

When Christ said “The Kingdom is preached and all are entering”, He was not referring to entering that Jerusalem for they were already there, but the land of faith. He said “The time that is coming is now when you no longer worship in Jerusalem (on earth) but in Spirit and truth” hereby defining the New boundaries of His Kingdom of “where ever two or more are gathered in His name, there He is in their midst” fulfilling “the Kingdom of God is within you”.

In His name, meaning “in Christ” are the limitless, eternal boundaries. We who are constituted of spirit and Truth are this constituency made up of New constitution called The New Covenant. And because of this we can say that “now we are fellow citizens members and Saints of the household of God laid upon the foundation of the apostles (not concrete) with Christ our cornerstone” and “we are living stones built together a habitation of God in the Spirit”. Once again defining our boundaries of endless opportunities.

But many are still looking for the physical kingdom “that cometh not with observation” and allege themselves with the wicked servant who said “my master delays His coming” of which He does not. He stands at your door and knocks even now.

Of those who seek another? They constitute the apostates of our day of a “not yet kingdom for a not yet king at some incalculable point in the future when another savior will come. This kingdom is not “at hand” but out of reach. You can’t have it. They join their predecessors of whom it is said “you are not entering the Kingdom nor are you allowing those who are trying to do so “. They preach another gospel then “The Kingdom of God is at hand”

Christ is the same yesterday today and forever, and need not to appear for you to believe because you are measured by your faith in the God “who calls those things that don’t exist as though they do”. Why? Because they do.

So it was everything defining the Jews of old, be at the laws the feast the prophets the buildings and the artifacts that were disassembled unraveled to never be repeated because they were only a temporary addendum to the promises made to Abraham. Moses was an add on that was fulfilled. Now we are back on track. They are so emphatically fulfilled and destroyed, every debt and every payment cleared and made good so that it never needs to be revisited or rebuilt. Even as it says in Hebrews of the New Covenant in force, “He made the first covenant obsolete”. Even as scripture says that the law was added till Faith Comes, and in the fullness of time God sent forth his son born from a woman to redeem those who are under the law”. The redemption has already taken place. That is why that whole culture is history. Christ took the law that was contrary to us, nailed it to the cross and neutralized the effects of its accusations,  sins, condemnation and fear. That’s what the law did. It kept you in the perpetual feasts and focus on sin and sacrifices.  That is why “he who sins has neither seen Him or known Him” and that is why now living on the redemptive side of the Law the prophets and sin “the accusor of the brethren has been cast down “. Because “He has perfected forever those who come to Him”. And we did.

The Kingdom of God is emphatically at hand. And it has nothing to do with the imitation on earth. Do not be fooled by the Jerusalem of our day.

Christ was born King, and many other things.

Download PDF
The scripture say that Christ was born King. He did not have to earn that right and He did not have to go to school to learn this right. He was “born King”. And he was born a king, but not any King, but the King of Kings. It is because He was Word of the Father, His express image before He became flesh and dwelt among us, that He is King because He is the true heir of all that the Father has, being His invisible attributes and Kingdom that is “not of this age”. This is what qualifies Him to be King. And not some supposed king of the Jews, but “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS”. And for that matter the one and only true exact image of the Father. Even as He stated during His short tenor on earth “I and the Father are one”. Totally congruent and inseparable as are all the lower level carnal representations meant only to teach us of God. What we see in the old law and the prophets and throughout the new covenant that we learn to raise up to their proper domain “in spirit and truth” in our understanding.
It was pilot who asked him “are you the king of his Jews” to which he said “it is as you say”. When pressed on this issue He did not deny He was King. He just answered and said “my kingdom is not of this age for if my kingdom was of this age I would send Legions and they would fight for me but my kingdom is not from here”. For us who know, He was speaking about His Throne eternal in the heavens. Not of the created realm. Not of this world.
You see Christ as king is of a kingdom that precedes and supersedes and completely permeates all ages. For “it is In Him we live and dwell and have our existence.” He does not have to become of earn anything or it could not be said of Him that “He is the same yesterday and today”. You see He is an unchangeable timeless reality that exist only in spirit and truth. As a matter of fact, if you erase all the creation of the 1st 6 days, be it the earth, the heavens and all the stars and galaxies plants and animals. And even the invisible angels, powers and principalities and rulers of darkness are under His domain or He would not be the same, and He would not be “King of kings and Lord of Lords” for there would be a power out of His control.
When God first made things after each day He looked at what He did and said “it is good”. And upon the completion of all things on the 6th and final day He said “it was good” then He thought of all the variables and all the possibilities of all the entities he had made including angels and men, then He said “It is very good”. Like looking at a big chess board He played out every scenario and every move that anything of all creation,man and angels  could say do or think and God said to Himself “I have this in control”. “I got this”.
God is not looking down on planet earth, wringing His hands wondering how He is going to regain control and wrap this up age. Everything is meticulously laid out according to His standard of perfection that is far above our comprehension, as are all the mysteries of God. This is why we learn only by revelation. For the time has come when I will tell you plainly about the Father”. And so He does and He does not need the old covenant law or prophets to do so. This greater salvation we talk about exists only in spirit and truth, which is our calling.
We who are joint heirs and of those who are “least in the Kingdom are greater than all the law and prophets” it is us who can connect the dots to help you understand the things that were seen dimly that the prophets could only elude to. We clarify what they were trying to convey in their carnal nature to those with a carnal nature. But we are born from above of word and spirit to occupy the heavenlies. Christ told the disciples “many righteous men and the Prophets have desired to see what you see, and hear what you hear and could not. We are the elect who know these things. And we see God face to face because Christ said “he who has seen Me has seen the Father”. That is us the elect of God. This is our rightful due gifted to us from the Father and paid for by the blood of Christ through the eternal spirit of things that are now in force. Something that another Jesus cannot do. He still needs to become king. Poor guy. And he is relying on the Jews of our day to pull this off. Woe are those who have that savior. He needs a lot of help. It is an insult to the living God. we gladly except the gift of God in Christ Jesus. God Himself
Daniel said this of Christ that “He raises up Kings and brings down Kings and gives wisdom to the wise”. Showing that His type of Kingship and Kingdom was above creation because he could orchestrate all the kingdoms of the earth like a chess player does with the pieces on a board.
Romans 9.17 For the Scripture says to the Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.”[g]18 Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens.
Yes Christ was born King and once again he did not have to earn this right for this reason he came into the world and he set the record straight. He is the king that laid aside his deity to come and retrieve his disciples. And in John 13 He displays this very well.Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God, rose from supper and laid aside His (Royal)garments, took a towel (a rag we call the flesh) and girded Himself. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.12 So when He had washed their feet, taken His (Royal) garments, and sat down again, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? 
To this we say yes. You Lord have just shown us your eschatology. You have shown us your end time scenario. You became flesh and dwelled among us. You finished all the law and the prophets, you established the new covenant, your last work on earth. Why? “Because I go to My Father and you see Me no more” (like a second coming) And being assured that you have granted the elect access to your “Kingdom at Hand” being at our proverbial fingertips. And because “You are the way to the Father”, We follow you Lord and fulfill your prayer to the Father of Glories saying “Father, that they whom you have given me may be with Me where I am. To behold My glory that the world may know. And Father. The glory you have given Me I have given them. That they may be one as we are one. So we are. We are as one as Christ who said “I and the Father are one. So we too join these.22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,   (Hebrews 12.22+) we are part of the symposium of the many, the congruence into one. Reconciled to the Father as Paul pleaded “Be ye reconciled to the Father. God was In Christ reconciling the world to Himself and has given us this ministry of reconciliation.
Boom! That is the whole purpose of our sojourn-ship here on earth. It is to reach this point, our purpose, our goal and the conclusion of the gospel. 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; To become godly. Godlike. Like God.
Who does the Father of spirits begat? Invisible ones. Paul said “we are sown a physical body and raised a spiritual one” this is us. Who does the Father of Glories begat? Glories like Himself. We are the Glories glorified with the Father seated at His own right hand. Bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh born of the spirit and word to be “a kind of firstfruits of His creation”. Not a 6 day creation but an eternal one clothed in the very invisible attributes of the invisible God. We have learned to “put on Christ” in this way. We put off the old at baptism by the working of faith and are raised in newness of life also by faith. We who have begun in the spirit perfect nothing in the old creation. It is from faith to faith. And you know what? Each and every transition happens by the Holy Spirit in the twinkling of an eye. Completely un-decernable to the human senses. We have ears to hear and eyes to see of another nature to understand this.
Stop
So here is something we have to say about him who was born King. He was also born many other things. He did not have to earn a right or to become something as though he was not for “Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
With Mary she said yes Lord I know that you will raise him up on the last day, speaking about Lazarus. And Christ reply to her? “Mary I am the resurrection”. It is not an event or a series of events like the 2nd coming seekers suppose. The resurrection is a person. Which is why paul said “since you are raised with Christ, seek the things above”. His things. And “Since we were buried with Him in death by baptist. We are also raised with Him to newness of life. As Isaiah put it “With My dead body they shall arise”, and so we did.
So Christ could have also told Mary, I am not just the resurrection. I am also the last day”.  Just as He said to the Pharisees “Abraham rejoiced to see My Day. He saw it and was glad”.  Christ is that day. Because even as we define an earthen day by the sun with 24 hour increments, The Lords day is lit by the light of the lamb and has no need for the sun or the moon. In whom is no darkness at all. No nights. This is how we walk in the light as He is in the light. Because He is that light. He is the radiance of God. He is the Glory of God. He wears it for our transfiguration (2 Corinthians 3.18). The source of all light. The light Paul encountered on the road to Emaus  being “7 times brighter than the sun”. Have you had this encounter? It is the only true light that shines in the heart of every man (John 1)

So for those who are waiting for the “day of the lord” to appear as defined by the sun, as if God is on hold, as if God is limited to these, don’t understand what the true day is. It is the day “in Christ”. And if “we walk in the light as He is light”, we are in that day. Wasn’t it the condemnation to those under the law stuck in the wilderness who rejected this call with the Lord saying of His Sabbath, His day without 24 hour increments, His day that has no night, The Lords day, The day of The Lord:

Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them,[a] not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said:

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

although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”[c] and again in this place: “They shall not enter My rest.”

You see there are many that thought that when Christ came into the world he had to earn something in order to be something. So they don’t think anybody was raised from the dead until Christ was raised from the dead first. But he showed himself as the resurrection before he ever went to the Cross showing for us that he did not have to become anything for the Eternal one cannot change and cannot earn he already owns.
You see there was never a person a place a provision or a promise from God that Christ was not. Why? Because Christ is the Fulfillment of all things. Be at Shiloh, be at the son of David, be it that prophet, be at that Messiah, being the high priest in the order of Melchizedek be it “that day”. These are all just descriptive of Himself, there is no provision from the father that is not Christ. Everything they were looking for was wrapped up into the person people call Jesus Christ.
 Scripture says that “in him, meaning Christ, dwells the fullness of the godhead body”. That is why “all things are in Christ”
Scripture says of Christ that he comes and his reward is with him. That is because the reward is himself. With Moses he had asked the Lord what should I tell the people whom you are who sent me. The Lord replied tell him that I am. Meaning I am fill in the blank. Whatever they were looking for in whatever they needed they would find in the sun who’s a duplicate of the father. Even as with the disciples when they were on the boat in the waters got choppy and Rocky to where they thought they would die, as soon as they received Christ into their boat, their vessel, they found out they were already where they needed to be. They just needed a renewed understanding as do some of us. The disciples were confused when they were in the boat but as soon as they were in Christ there was nothing confusing at all. End of The Great I Am? When the Pharisees were inquiring  him as to who he was he said that “I am”. When the soldiers that came with Judas to take Christ he said the same words I am in the men fell over backwards.
Epilogue:
There are many caught up in and infatuated with the Jerusalem of our day. They anticipate the Messiah and King to come back and live in their city after they have it refurbished for Him. They say “we have a chief cornerstone ready to lay”. We have found a red heifer and are ready to commense the sacrifices to please our king.

WORD

Download PDF

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. Original thought is God the Father, and his son is his word.
 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” the only one that came out. 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, And without him nothing that is made was made. 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. He has made them room for all of their individual alternate realities.
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 but split for creation only in concept For us to grow and realize the Revelation that they are one.
 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 separateExcept in creation where the godhead is broken down in concept for us to understand.
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 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.


 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

THEY HAVE KEPT YOUR WORD

Download PDF

Jesus Christ having come to earth had a specific task to accomplish before He returned to the Father, and having completed that task He knew His departure was “At hand”.

His report to the Father? “I have glorified you on the earth, I have finished the work you have given Me to do”. And the work in question in this scripture is “I have manifest Your name to those whom you have given me out of the world and they have kept it. They were Yours, You gave them to Me and they have kept Your Word” And “I have given them the words which You had given Me (to give to them) and they have received them and have known surely (truly without question or addendum) that Jesus came from the Father and was to return, His mission was accomplished.

For you see Christ, after the departure of Judas, no longer called them servants but friends “for a servant does not know what his Master is doing, but I tell you plainly about the father”. Then says “I have come forth from the Father and have come into the world and again I leave the world and go to the Father”. It was as if time froze and all the energy of Jesus Christ spotlighted that phrase for all eternity, for that was primary in the work the Father gave Him. And it was so much so, that He made the disciples repeat what they heard, as he does also with us. Jesus then reports to the Father “They have kept your word”. Jesus came forth from the Father and returned to the Father” And the message kept? John 16.28 I came forth from the Father into the world. Again I leave the world and go to the Father”.
If this then is central to the message the Father gave the son to give to us for it to be repeated by the disciples, then shouldn’t it be central to the teachings of Christ today? He came to sow seed in the hearts of the disciples and He knew it took root when His words came out of their mouths, otherwise He could not have said to the Father “I have given them Your word and they know truly I have come from you” who also said “You will see me no more because I go to the Father” 
The epic or paramount message that was delivered was that Christ had come forth and that He was returning and no where, I mean no where in all this discourse where He speaks plainly does He ever mention anything about a second coming or another work. Yet today in Christianity for many, that is the focus. But Jesus Christ told the Father “they have kept Your word” and the disciples having repeated that, Jesus said to them “Do you now believe?” as if to punctuate for us this important truth, then to further state to the Father “I have given them Your word and they have kept it” is a double stamp for us too. This is what He wants us to keep as well. And if Jesus did not finish the work the Father gave Him, He would have to come back a second time and none of what He said is true or reliable. His work in fact would not be finished.
You see it was the prophets who spoke of a coming one of which words Jesus accomplished the word saying “all the law and the prophets were until John the baptist, now being fulfilled in Christ, Him having accomplished and finished the work saying “now the Kingdom is preached and all are pressing their way in” as if to indicate a stampede but today? They are waiting for a kingdom and they call it a second coming. What a disgrace. No stampede into the Kingdom, the doors are closed. A sign on the door “We are closed for remodeling and will re-open at the grand second coming. Bring your lawn chairs, popcorn, and palm branches for the coronation of the king who is coming later. Hosanna blessed will he be on that day. With this mindset “The Kingdom of God at hand” has no relevance for it in fact would be not “at hand” but some time in the future and we would all be left in our sins, but that’s not the case. That’s not the gospel.
John the baptist specifically sent and asked Christ “Are you the coming one or do we seek another?” Jesus did not send word to John of a second coming, No problem I’ll get you on the rebound. Or; Go tell John I will come back in another couple thousand years? This is not found once in scripture, neither is “the second coming”. But rather “go tell John what you see and hear”. Does this offend you?
Jesus could not say of these people, the second coming seekers “Father they have kept your word” those who keep My Word the Father will love and We will come to them”. This can not be said to the second coming seekers because they believe the kingdom must come and their heart is covered over with a thick delusion. They do not believe the testimony God gave the Son, then the Son gave the disciples, then the disciples repeated it back to Christ and He delivered word to the Father. “It is finished” unless finished means something else.
In John chapter 13 Christ showed the disciples in parable form the same thing. Christ stood up and took off his garments then He put on a clean towel however our righteousness is filthy rags. He proceeded to wash the feet of the disciples with the clean towel till they were all clean, except Judas of course.
We can understand from Moses the importance of clean feet with what sandals mean, because when Moses was on Sinai he was instructed to “take off thy sandals for where you stand is Holy ground”. This was the first place he came in contact with the eternal and his sandals were the insulators between the created and the eternal. And the same for the disciples, they were coming into contact with the invisible and eternal that was washing their feet and we understand in parable form that it is us that is washed by the water of the word.
We can also understand that the inversion of this concept is also true when John the Baptist stated that he was not worthy to loose the sandal straps on Christ’s feet. Once again showing sandals to be the insulator between the Eternal in the temporal. Christ then said “what I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this.” And hopefully you are able to understand this as well so you can advance further into His Kingdom.
So when Christ had washed their feet, He took off the towel, put His original garments back on and sat back down like in the beginning, then said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? The answer is that He showed them in parable form “for without a parable spake he not to the people”, that He took off His Heavenly attire, put on earthly attire as referred to by the towel, washed their feet to sanctify them so that He could tell the Father “I have finished the work you have given Me to do, I have those you have given Me your word and they have kept it, to return to His Eternal Glory, having finished His work in the flesh. He now instructs us to “follow Me so that where I am you may be also. He left us an example and We just showed you how to do it. You have to do it the way He did it with word, God’s word. In the beginning was the word, the word was with God, and the Word was God”. You too must become Word to follow Him like we just showed you.
We hope you know now the mission of Christ was to retrieve His elect by washing them for recieving His word and the regeneration of the spirit, to wash each other’s walk, follow Him and take their rightful seat at His own right hand. Can you see this? Can you receive this?
So those who heard and kept the word “I have come forth from the Father and come into the world, now I leave the world and go back to the Father”.
We also heard another word. “Follow Me that where I am you may be also” If you truly understand this and do this, you will know Him and there is no need for another Jesus to explain or perform anything. Salvation start to finish is summed up in this way. This is the Christ, why do you seek another?
The Kingdom of God is at hand.
