All the law and the prophets were till Christ. Christ has fulfilled and expired the purpose of the law and the prophets. That kingdom expires and yhe Kingdom of God is ar hand, for those willing to except tgr nee law and it’s Kingdom.
Previous posts we explained the law is fulfilled, completed and expired. The Ministers of that law were the prophets. God used the prophets to speak to those who were under the first Covenant called the law. But because the law is done being in-efficacious because “no not one is righteous”, so too the prophets are done.
So now “there is one mediator between God and man the man Christ Jesus”. And because there is only “one mediator between God and man the man Christ Jesus”. And because He is the only begotten of the Father, being uniquely God and man, this qualifies Him to do so. So the prophets are now unnecessary. They were trained in the law to speak on behalf of those under the law. Because “the law made nothing perfect, “but the bringing in of a better hope did”. The law was added till faith came and without the law the prophets have nothing to say of any authority to us of the new and living way today. Because they spoke old covenant nomenclature to an expired system. “All the law and yhe prophets eere till John”. That is it. The assembly line is broken. “Christ appeared and took away the first to establish the second”. The old wine is not better. One covenant replaces another and the messengers of the first have no voice in the New Covenant now in force with the shedding of the blood of Christ. Even as the Lord said to Moses “I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them ALL that I command Him.” Christ is that prophet who “speaks All” and needs no help. He is the one that precedes and supersedes the law that was added till faith came. Faith being evidence of the invisible. Christ is the Reformation. In Christ all things are new. Hence the fullfillment and the expiration of all things old.
2 Corinthians 5 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away (being fullfilled); behold, all things have become new. (The law, prophets, feasts and city) 18 Now all things areof God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ (not law), and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ (at the cross and not a 2nd coming) reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses (short comings defined by the law) to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Christ said ” You have sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth. 34 Yet I do not receive testimony from man, he was a burning light you were willing to listen to him for a time”.
So goes all the prophets, “for a time” and that time is fulfilled. For this reason “all the law and the prophets were till John. That,s all folks. John the baptist in prison summarized his ability to understand the things of God when he said “are you the coming one, or do we seek another?” That mindset was cut off as you must do to receive what we are saying. “Even today in reading the law a veil remains over the eyes to those who are looking at the glory that has passed.
Till Christ came God only spoke to yhe people by parables for wiyhput a parable spake he not to the people”. Yge law and yhe prophets eere parables. They were fugures of speech. But Christ said “the time is coming when I will sleak to you plainly abouy the Father”
Hence the reconciliation. “I plead with you. Be ye reconciled to the Father”. The law is a tutor only to bring us to this point and expire the verse that says “when that which is perfect has clme, tgat which is in part is done away with.
Even the writer of Hebrews confirms the expiration with these words: the Holy Spirit indicating this, that the way into the Holiest of All was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle was still standing. ” showing the expiration of the old way. If the old way still has importance in your understanding you cannot go into the Holy of holies but the writer of Hebrews confirms here again saying: Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus.” If the old law and the prophets, it’s buildings,articles,city and feast have importance to you, you simply cannot enter into the Kingdom of God in Christ.
Paul who said that a veil blinds those under Moses. That “if our gospel is veiled it is veiled to those who are perishing. Whose mind the God of this age has blinded.” And there was none so blind as the Jewish leaders of whom Christ called “brood of vipers, sons of satan, whited seplechers, of whom the gloom of darkness is reserved forever.
Now back to our theme on the prophets of that condemned culture. The testimony that replaces the prophets now is as Christ said “We speak what We know and We testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. 12 If We have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if We tell you heavenly things?” We stand on the works of the prophets expired and laid like a foundation to stand on and build upon, building above. With Christ the Chief cornerstone the builders of that day and ours reject.
History is repeating itself even now. That monstrous thing called Jerusalem today resembles not the things of the scriptures but is a beast from the pit of falsely interpreting scripture as needing yet to be fulfilled. It rejects every aspect of the fulfilling of the true Christ and presents another with all lying signs if possible to deceive us the elect. A perfect lie that looks like the truth and uses scripture in a carnal way when “flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom”. But some of us have. Jerusalem on earth which is spiritually called Sodom and Mezriam where our Lord was slain.
It was said of John the Baptist that “there are none born among women who are greater than he”. However he who is least in the kingdom is greater than he?”. That is We who are born again in spirit and truth. We are part of the amalgamation of the one. Echad! We are “the general assembly and church of the first born (reborn of spirit and truth). Those of us who have received the invitation of Christ who said “follow me that where I am you may be also. So We did. And “Father that they all may be one, as You, Father, in Me, and I in You; so We are, “that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. ” Do you believe? “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, infused and inseparable “that the world may know that You have sent Me,”..,. This is us the elect. The symposium of the spirits of men made perfect. To be “in Christ” and in Mt Zion, the Heavenly Jerusalem come down of God from Heaven made of living stones.
Testimony from man to man is that man is a linear creature bound by time and matter and needed tools for that cause that appealed to their senses of sight and sound of their carnal nature. Paul pleaded with these saying ” But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? 10 You observe days and months and seasons and years. 11 I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain.” These were linear thinkers like all dispensationalists. They are linear looking to an end but “we speak of that which is from the beginning. “The time that is coming now is!”
For such We have eyes to see and ears to hear of a different nature. Christ does not receive his testimony from man because time linear testimony does not testify to the Eternal, Invisible things of God anymore than an ant can read a blue print. Just as the Lord said he only “spoke to the people through parables and without a parable spake he not to them”, he was using these communications for linear creatures trying to Define Eternal, Invisible realities using the law and the prophets and that it did not work. Why? Because “there was none righteous, no not one”. The Jews did not hear the prophets but killed them all and the last messenger sent was the son in whom they slew. Then the result as seen in this parable “Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my beloved son. Probably they will respect him when they see him.’ 14 But when the vinedressers saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.’ 15 So they cast him out of the vineyard and killed him.Therefore what will the owner of the vineyard do to them? 16 He will come and destroy those vinedressers and give the vineyard to others.” And He did. Even John said to the brood of vipers “the ax is laid to the root of the tree to be thrown into the fire.
So in closing it is this simple. The law was added till faith comes, when the fullness of time had come God sent forth His Son born from a women to redeem those under the law. This is all past. Christ came to do the will of the Father. He takes away the first to establish the New Covenant with the shedding of His blood. To exchange the crown of thorns for Glory.
The first one is expired in purpose and principle. It has been torn down till “not one stone shall be left upon another”. There is no longer any purpose for any mechanism of that old covenant system to exist including the people, place, language, prophets, priests or feasts.
What then is the right language? They spoke in tongues of every language. In what place, Jerusalem? No! Wherever 2 or more are gathered their I am in their midst. What about building the temple? We are the temples of the living God. We are living stones built for a habitation of God in the spirit. What about the sacrifices. By sacrificing Himself He has perfected eternally all who come to Him. He has not entered the tabernacle made with hands but entered into the one eternal in the heavens not made by man but God.
The Kingdom of God is at your fingertips.
- Established and Perfected. Lessons from 1st Peter
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, (not on earth) to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.
Hear the Heavenly Voice
25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake[h] not only the earth, but also heaven.”[i] 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made (carnally visible), that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, (invisible) let us have grace, by which we may[j] serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire.
So if the light that is in you is darkness how great is it? The light that shines in our hearts is a great illumination.
As always, The Kingdom of God is At Hand
- In the Hebrew language God is Echad. Meaning God is one. Deuteronomy 6. Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one!
- Meaning; God is indissoluble, in-divisable and inseparable in His original composition of Spirit and truth.
For this reason there’s another construct then Spirit and truth, and that is time and matter. In this construct God is broken down into individual sound bites, not for a carnal manifestation, but for our spiritual comsumption and growth. He who is eternally one and complete in Himself is immortal and invisible.
God is indivisible and inseparable. He is only broken down in concept for us to realize who God is by degree, one revelation at a time to the degree we are able to receive until we learn elemental principles not of the building blocks of Earthen elements, but of the invisible building blocks that makes up God in the spirit. This is God in His natural before time construct of “that which is from the beginning”. The before time. The eternal one.
It is as we consume these assorted truths that we re-assemble the Son of God in ourselves, in our inner man and become Godly. We become godlike in this way. Scripture contains the very DNA of God. In the beginning was God in Word form, and as we consume His word we are modified internally and become “a new creation in Christ”. We are born again. Old things have passed away, all things become new” in this way and not another. We become immortal, invisible eternal and not time sensitive.
Like Paul said “you observe days months seasons and years. I am afraid that I’ve labored for you in vain”. And “I labor again to have Christ formed again in you”. We are not time frame orientated. Those are if the earth. God is not.
So when we receive the Son in Word form, the construct He was before He became flesh, the elements He is made up of before the Father spoke Him, we receive God in His totality “for in Him (The Son) dwells the fullness of the godhead body and we are complete in him” if we partake of His invisible personage.
So it is our journey here in time And matter to understand and realize more clearly what Word means and how to put Word on. How to put Christ on. We learn to understand what God is. We assimilate God in this way in the inner man. “For we have this treasure in earthen vessels (our man) that the Glory and the Excellency may be of God and not ourselves” our man. It is other worldly.
We put on Gods invisible nature in an invisible way “from faith to faith”. For we who have begun in the spirit perfect nothing in a carnal way. His words are spirit and they are life. We see the “evidence of the things unseen” and we accept Him in the spirit of our minds. We use our invisible tool of faith to implement “the things that have been freely given to us in Christ”. In this way we see “the hidden things in Christ” and in this way we see “we are hidden in Christ” also. In this way we fulfill the verse that says “Father that they whom you have given Me may be with Me where I am”. Yes! Seated in the heavenlies in Christ”. With Him, like Him and enjoying the delicousies He enjoys. We the elect are the true heirs of the things of God. We do not associate with the sit and waits of the second coming.
It is us “the called” the eklisia, who have arrived. To us who have been given the keys to the Kingdom, we have unlocked it and entered in. “No one has descended from heaven but he who has ascended to heaven who is the son if man who is in Heaven” (John 3) And if we are in Him, we are in heaven, in Christ. Because all things of God culminate in the spirit, in Christ in one. God is one, God is Echad. He is the full sum, the collection of all His concepts broken down in what is called the law and the prophets, fulfilled and expired in Christ, of invisible building blocks we call truths in the spirit. Truths displayed to our understanding to be reassembled in our inward man to the culmination of all truths to the truth. God. Echad.
Just as like species communicate in their own language, we must do this to communicate with God to have a clear relationship with God. His “words are spirit and they are life”. We associate with Him like this and assimilate what we associate. We testify what we hear and see because in Him there is nothing else. No impurities. In Him is nothing else to talk about but Him. And we who are in Him know this truth where there is no darkness or other fabricated impurities. We have nothing left to say, but we say everything at the same time. He is complete in Himself and as We take Him in, we are as complete as His self like looking in a mirror. We see a reflection of Himself in ourself as His same self and His purpose is completed. Our transfiguration had its transformation and we are one. We are in the Echad in the Father and fulfill the words of Christ saying ” Father that those you have given me may be with Me where I am”. This is all done in the invisible.
When you were told to put on the breast plate of love, what store did you buy that at? When you were instructed to “Let your feet be shod with the Gospel of peace”, who tied your shoes? When you were told to “taste and see that the Lord is good”, did you pallet that with your tongue or your mind? Do you see what we are talking about? Then you have the eyes to see of a different nature. A spiritual one.
For those of us “who have eyes to see and ears to hear of a different nature. A spiritual nature. Being born again not of the building blocks of time and matter, but by His words and His Spirit. To be “a kind of firstfruits of His creating” being “born from above”
To conceptualize God in this way is to conceive in the spirit. To be genetically altered from the preconception of the carnal inception of the death passed on to the Adamic nature being “from dust to dust” to the life of God in Christ” receiving eternal life. For “He who has the Son has life, He who has not the Son has not life”. To our inheritance we arrive. We arise.
And this genetic alteration we do In the “inner man”, in “the spirit of our mind”. We serve the Living God by reassembling these concepts passed on to us through scripture, to realize not so much only who He is but who we are. That is why we look to the scriptures “as beholding our face in the mirror arr being transformed into the same full image as by the spirit”, not being a mirror to reflect our eye color or our skin complex but the complexities of our spirit, and so we do. We put our new nature on, and as it says in scripture to “put on Christ”. This then is our purpose here on planet earth. And our purpose is not to wait for another coming one to transition us for the New Covenant is already in place whereby God writes these things not on tablets if stone but on our invisible part we call the heart. We ponder these things and they are raised incorruptible in the spirit of our mind. We assimilate God. We associate with God. We are of His kind of Spirit and truth.
It is scripture that contains the very genetic information of God given to us for our “transfiguration”. That word from the Greek is “metamorphos” and as a worm does not comprehend the flight and life of the butterfly, so too the carnal cannot understand the spirit. They are diametrically different. They are in fact opposite.
As we receive this genetic information “we know God even as we are known”. Like Adam knew Eve. A genetic transfer takes place. We display perfection in the spirit in our understanding and fufill in ourselves “till we all come to perfect understanding, to a full stature of Christ”. An exactitude. We fulfill the verse in ourselves that says “when that which is perfect is come that which is in part is done away with”. Even as Christ said “Father I have completed the work you have given Me to do. I have given your word to those you have given me out of the world and they have kept your word”. Mission accomplished.
The Carnal counterpart serves its purpose this way by training the mind. Scriptures are given to train the mind. Prophesy is disigned to be used to explain the invisible. To make visible the invisible things of God and not to speak of a future event. A future event speaks of something that is momentary and by definition is not eternal but time related. God is not these. These were all only parables for “without a parable spake he not to the people”.
That’s a perversion of the scriptures. To take the words of God and construct them here on earth. They are the perversity because a carnal construct He is not. He is spirit and Truth Eternal and mortal and invisible and if we consume word as the bread of life we become what we eat.
The first Epistle of John explains this perfectly he says that that which we have heard which we’ve seen which we’ve handled which we’ve touched essentially which we’ve consumed concerning the life concerning the word of life that which we declare unto you that which we manifest to you and so we do why so you two can have fellowship with us. With us who are spiritual konstrukt to be spiritually assimilated his spiritually articulated and spiritually manifest until we do for those of us to know are Folsom Duty role and goal is to articulate these things. It is in this way that the kingdom of God is at hand
Any such notion that God must become something carnally visual is an idealistic notion. You see even with Moses he was to make things according to what he saw on the mount. So the children of Israel rightly defined as children some 1200 + x in the scriptures because children in understanding must try to assimilate through using toys. And much like a little girl play with a Barbie or a boy with a GI Joe to further explore the very nature that they are so we do with scripture. And so did the Israelites with the feasts the Temple’s the artifacts these are all given to understand that Eternal counterpart with scripture even saying that Christ is not entered the temple made with hands with the one Eternal in the heavens. And that’s where we must put him in his proper element of Eternity. A done deal. The only thing that’s being made is our understanding and this is their new creation. Forgot his causes light to shine out of Darkness has shown in our hearts why the darkened heart must be enlightened with the knowledge of these things.
So to take the physical examples of the invisible things and try to ascribe them as deity to deify them or associate them with God and time and matter is an idealistic notion because these things God will never be or he would become the false image of himself. Those things are given for us once again for the visible to make visible the invisible things. The carnal notion the idle notion is to deify the things of creation.
This is why as Christ comes he comes as a giver or a taker he comes upon the unknowing as a thief to take away the things to them that are important and they do not want to pry their fingers apart to let them go
- In the beginning God.
