Paul. Resurrection by degree.

Download PDF
“To the degree you are able to receive”
 Paul said this to the Philippians that he presses on to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of him, that if I may by any means attain to the resurrection of the dead. Something end time seekers think is impossible.  To attain to the resurrection before his departure. That is what Paul strove for, and so should we. As he said “to as many as are mature have this mind”. And so we do. Anything short of this is a truncated gospel. For even the 12 tribes strove night and day in hopes to attain the resurrection too. (Acts 26.7) If you can learn to understand this then maybe you can see why Rehab laid the wood out in order in the attic where she hid the messengers.
    So it is the gospel that teaches us by degree we grow. We put Christ in in this way, including the resurrection. To the degree that we believe “let it be according to your faith”. And “to the degree” does not refer to a temperature like 80 or 90 degrees Fahrenheit but it still shows us that by increments, that as our faith grows and we walk in His light we apply new revelation to our conscience and our minds. This is our transformation and Transfiguration now. Paul said not that he has attained but he “reaches out to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of” him. Of which he said in the next chapter, that it was for equality to “let this mind be in you”. And it’s not just let it be in you but develop it by degree from one revelation to another, which is the unveiling, the pulling back of the curtain “for the eyes of your understanding to see” that we and all mankind were made in the beginning to show the likeness of God. From this we fell, to this we are restored. And it is through  the gospel “by degree” that we are fully restored.
   So when scripture says “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling ” it shows that salvation is not a once saved always saved and it is not a 2nd coming act from Christ.  Salvation is definitely not a down payment as you sit and wait for another coming of another Jesus at a Rapture for a future resurrection. That my friend is the Pharasitic belief that Paul was to graduate from through various degrees to find himself to have the same mind as Christ, who thought it not robbery to be equal with God.
  And when God made Adam in the beginning with him, there was equality. This is why scripture says that by salvation “we are joint heirs with Christ”.  And also “in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body, and “you are complete in Him who is the head over all powers and principalities” already so He need not come back to do so.
   It is by revelation of the word in the mind, and then the trial by fire in our lives that “brings us forth as gold” testing  the things of “hath God really said?” That we may be found of pure faith. This is what it means to be to a saint, and called to be holy. We are talking about putting on invisible attributes and not religiously Pious activity, behavior or attitude.
  Now when Christ was coming back down from his Transfiguration the disciples asked “why then do the scribes say Elijah must come first? And Jesus Christ answered them “Elijah has come if you’re able to receive it”. And it is in this way that Christ showed that if they were able to believe in to see and understand, they would move forward and receive the promise that was spoken “to the degree ye are able”. It is also said to “follow those who through faith and patience inherit the promises”?  Yes. This is the invisible attributes that we talk about. Think of it like “the coat of many colors” of Joseph for that is what the coat portrayed.
  You see Gods fulfilling of the promises are not dispensed by time as many think. They are not to be put on a calendar then wait for the event. It was the slothful steward who said; my lord delays his coming. Scripture says “you observe days, months, seasons and years. I am afraid that I have labored for you in vain.” And in this way 2nd coming end time fascinations hold you “in vain”. But for us, we see with the eye of our understanding and receive by faith, then trial by fire, and presto. You get the thing that was promised. Which is? Another aspect of the nature of God given to us. You get it, then you move on to the next attribute to be attained by degree. So “to the degree you are able”.
  This is proof that the gospel is progressive, and that Pauls messages map out for us his transfiguration for ours. “He who receives a righteous man receives a righteous mans reward,  he who receives a prophet receives a prophets reward” and he who is least in the kingdom is greater than these” and we say if you have been received into the Kingdom,  then you stand on the works of these men who are the foundation of the kingdom.  And maybe you can walk down from this high place with your own tidbit. This is our journey into the promise land, the land of faith.
And Paul’s main obstacle” “If I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
   So you can realize Elijah can come for you today. Elijah represents the spirit or teaching of Elijah, and a perspective of the messenger that takes you up by degree in the spirit of Elijah that in this way we can say to you “Paul must come first before the kingdom because you have to follow the spirit of His teachings to when Paul says “you are no longer strangers but fellow members and saints of the household of God. But Paul didn’t always see that. He used to believe in a future kingdom but he learned it in one of his consecutive revelations. Eph 3.3 “by revelation God  made known to me this mystery. “
 Elijah is said to  restore the sons to the father? That is what that spirit and teaching does. and has greater interpretation then generally understood. It is us, his offspring,  being restored to God the Father. Is not that the whole purpose of the gospel? “I plead with you therefore by the mercies of God that you be reconciled to the father” and with these words we say Amen.
 So we put on Christ, we walk in the things that he is showing us and given us and we go up by degree, pictorially speaking of ascending to the throne, or going up to Jerusalem “by degree”. And when Jesus Christ said “I and the father are one” He was showing for us that equality with the father is possible while we are incarnate, that Resurrection with him is possible while we are here on earth, that the Jewish belief of the future resurrection of the future time is at odds with those of us who are called to come up hither. So we do.
   So if you are able to receive these words then let it be according to your faith but even if not I’m sure God will show you that too.
It was Paul who was to deliver a gospel that would walk out for us a transition from a Pharasitical Resurrection and future Kingdom mindset to being resurrected with Christ and accept our new national status of being “fellow citizens in the Kingdom  and members of the house hold of God” now.
   Like Isaiah said “with His dead body our dead bodies will rise”? He bore our sins and “by his stripes we are healed” to what Adam Lost In the Garden of Eden. For those of us who believe? Some bear fruit, 10 fold some 20 and some 100-fold. It is in this way we grow by degrees and by increment to become more and more christ-like, more Godly more god-like.
The revelation of Jesus Christ is not at a one-time so-called public offering by a Second Coming but by a continual bathing in the Revelation through the word for He was the word that became flesh so that we in the flesh would become word. And the Word was with God and the Word was God”. We inherit all things in Christ. Everything that he has is ours including this mind that is equal with God. That is why Paul said “we go on to perfection, to a full stature and full measure of the son of God”. And it is because Paul had to transition from a physical resurrection and mindset to the correct resurrection and mindset. And he had to do this by degree. That he had to lay hold and teach to us as he showed us through his Epistles, the transitions. And this is why the more current or recent writings of Paul are more powerful and more clear and less Pharisaic then his first writings and preaching.
    So next we will talk about John the Apostle and show how his preaching is greater than any of Paul’s because Paul was to speak of things “yet to be revealed” and he chose to go up by degree, but John describes the full package. He talks about the overcomer and those who have overcome the world by faith and need not a second coming Jesus. In John the transition is complete therefore he has a greater message.
   It is here that we will conclude our messages of Paul and the resurrection
   The kingdom of God is at hand

Our Perfection and the Priesthood

Download PDF

Perfection. To become a perfect man is generally seen as something attainable only in the next age as though it is not yet but must become later after a 2nd coming but scripture says otherwise.

 

Hebrews 7.11 Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise.

You see perfection has always been the objective of God in our lives. Hebrews 6.1 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection”. So we do. It was the law and the priesthood that believers were to learn by contrast. What they did in the desert over and over, Taking the tent down and packing the articles to set it all back up again, wax on, wax off. God did once. They were to do the laws and services to engrave on their hearts what is forever in the spirit. The new covenant says that “I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; Paul says that we are living epistles of Gods laws written on our hearts known and read by all men. This is the New Covenant. Not tablets of stone but your invisible part. That is what God is interested in.
 God does nothing twice as though the first time He made a mistake. The repetition serves us as reminders. The law was our “guardians and tutors till faith comes” (Gal 4) and not a 2nd coming Jesus. “When that which is perfect comes, that which is in part is done away with”, the repetition stops. We receive the completion.
   We can say “Oh! I get it. Thank you God”. The services were not the thing that pleases God. Like He said in Isaiah 1 “When you come to appear before Me, Who has required this from your hand, To trample My courts?  Bring no more futile sacrifices; I cannot endure iniquity and the sacred meeting.” The learning of the lesson is what pleases Him. To do them and not learn from them disturbs the heavenly Father.
   This is what happens in many religious settings. They know Gods works but they don’t know His ways”. His ways are invisible and His true works are your salvation. For you to be complete. And “we are complete in Him who is the head over all”. If you can see this with your eyes of understanding than it can be said of you too.”That you have come to the light to clearly see that what is required by you is done in God. (John 3.21) It is a gift that God gives. Something He did for us. And you cannot add to make it better or take away from it to make it worse. But you can reject it. You can ignore it like many do. You can even do like the Israelite’s whose corpses died in the wilderness and just refuse to believe what we are saying. And if you are working for it? You may not know the working of faith of the one who said “follow Me that where I am you may be also”.  That is what the Jews did.
And the purpose of all the law, priesthood and prophets? For us to learn by their similes. To go onto perfection by what we learn. We are not perfected some silly man riding on a white horsey coming to rapture you. That was a simile, a parable. “For without a parable spake he not to them. It is for you to see heavenly, invisible, holy things that are accomplished “in Christ” for us to receive the gift of eternal life and all its benefits by what is revealed to us by His Word. By receiving in the heart, or in our soul. Our invisible part that remains after the body returns to dust.
19 for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God. And this better hope is a living hope. It is the power of God unto salvation and salvation completed in us is perfection of the Fathers Word in us who have faith.
12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
   Yes. This all happens in our invisible part. The place of our transformation. To what end? Our perfection. “Till we come to a perfect man. To the fullness and stature of the Son of God”. And we can do this because we wait for the promise to come at a 2nd coming? No! The law made nothing perfect and neither does the 2nd coming, that is judgement. But the bringing of a new hope does. It brings in us perfection. The new priesthood does. The new covenant does. There is no 3rd covenant for the next Jesus for “He is seated waiting for His enemies to become His footstool. And He is waiting for this to happen because His word alive in you and applied by faith conquers. We have this New covenant that is in force when? When there is a death of the testator. And Christ died, the blood was shed for the redemption, the restitution. For the resusitation and resurrection of as many as will follow. The price was paid. “It is finished” He need not come back to fight or work. He came to do the work of salvation and the proof is that is what His name means. He is salvation. He is the savior. He is the performer of salvation. The author and finisher of our faith not our physicality. Our physicality declines but our inward man is renewed. It is not a constant renewal of just getting better. It is always brand new and does not decline or decay. Our inheritance reserved in heaven which is where our heart is
So we speak of just 2 covenants. There is no mid point between covenants. And the New Covenant just restores to the pre-law order anyway for “the law was added till faith comes”. Do you have that? The only thing new about it is new souls. A renewed invisible part. A new heart with the genetic code given to us to be applied by the spirit through the baptism and trial of fire to transform us back to the likeness of the glory of God. This is what we were created for saying “go forth and have dominion”. Man had this in the beginning when God said of His creation “it is good, very good”. And so we are.
There is an account of the priesthood that “brought in perfection” that is generally misunderstood. It was in Gethsemane that the Son and the Father talked saying “Father if there is any other way, let this cup pass”. This passage is abused to create false humility and keeps people stuck in their sins at the base of the cross. If you remember the Israelite’s were suppose to eat the Passover in haste, why? God did not send His Son for you to wallow in endless confessions over personal failures as though the cross is ineffective to save and transform you. That would be no better than the law in repetitions. God does things once and the Son does the works of the Father. In this way the two are one. In this way we are too.
   Christ is our Passover we are to eat in haste. And we are called to “o on to perfection not laying the dead works of repentance and baptisms” and such. The conversation the Father and Son had that night was not about sins as a focus, but the taking away the sin stained conscience for you to move on to perfection in the here and now. When Christ said “Father if there is any other way?” The Father could have easily replied “Yes! Why don’t you do half the job now and finish it at a 2nd coming” but He didn’t. No where is it mentioned in scripture that there is a 2nd coming. It is non-scriptural. The phrase “2nd coming does not exist in scripture.
The”bringing in of a better hope by which we draw close to God” to bring us to perfection has happened and can be activated by faith.
   What the 2nd coming seekers look for will never be for they want a visual. But we are receiving a Kingdom that cannot be shaken”. (Heb 12.28) One that “cometh not with observation” meaning visible to the canal eyes.
Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man.” 
 
And may I add this is in the eternal. It is not a structure like we see but invisible components of the eternal almighty. He beacons us “come up hither”
 
Here is your non visual. What are you waiting for? A visual? Do you despise the precious blood of the lamb of God. His Son who offered himself with out spot or blemish acceptable to the Father. 
 
Allow “the blood of Christ through the eternal spirit to wash your conscience from dead works to serve the living God” From Hebrews 10.2 For the worshipers, once (purged) purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins”. So we don’t. And like it says in 1st John “he who sins has neither seen Him or known Him. Do you know Him like this?
 And this is to be like Him. To receive this gift.  He is the gift. “He comes and His reward is with Him”. It is Him. He gave Himself. He was broken down in word form from the beginning. All the law and the prophets, feasts and sacrifices were Him. He is the “Lo I have come in the volume of the book. It is written of Me”. This is Gods genetic code was replicated in this way for us to put Him on one word at a time, one revelation at a time for HIs coming are many. And He comes as a theif because you cannot see Him. But He comes continually or us to become godly, god-like, like Him. Not piously or religiously but God-Like for that is what Godly means. The Word became flesh for us to see that we can become godly while we are in the flesh. Jesus was. And “as He is so are we in the world”. This is perfection and this is the gift. For He comes and His reward is with Him” if you receive Him. But you must receive Him as He is in truth, as He is eternally “the same yesterday, today and forever. Not in human form which He used temporarily to show us the way.
 
So “follow those who through faith and patience inherit the promises”? The 2nd coming message says the fulfillment of the promises is when Jesus comes back to finish the work. He said ‘it is finished”. But you must believe it. If you are waiting for god like ness you are like the slothful steward who says; my lord delays His coming”. Slothful because that is a lazy posture. If we press on to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of us, we strive for the prize. We compete according to the rules. The rules of faith. That without faith it is impossible to please God. But if We seek Him in the spirit of our mind, “He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him”. And “eternal life for those who in patient continence in doing good seek for glory honor and immortality”. So this immortality we seek and He rewards us. And of this immortality? It is not mortally understood because it is not visible. That is why the Lord said “Seeing with their eyes they see not, and hearing with their ears they hear not. For one must see and hear with the heart to understand the things of God. So we do. 
We will discuss further what the perfect man does. Like Jesus said. “I do the works of my Father. So we do. We do the works of salvation.
“It is good that a student become like his teacher” So we do. We become lie Him. This is a perfect man.

Paul testified the resurrection of faith

Download PDF
Paul was set out to testify of the Gospel of the Resurrection. And if it was for a future Resurrection, that would be no new testimony at all because even the Pharisees believed there was a resurrection, a future one. The Sadducee’s and Pharisees argued about this. But the testimony from Paul was to come out of that Pharisaic testimony of a future resurrection of time and matter and be transformed from that one into the one that “cometh not with observation”.
  When Paul was speaking to the Roman ruler Agrippa being a believer. Paul said “why do you think it’s incredible that God raises the dead” because it was not incredible that God raises the dead, for the Resurrection was a believe they already had. What was incredible is that God raises the dead by the operation of faith. That a resurrection of the end times was a distraction. Having come out of that system he was to testify to a different resurrection. The Lord said to Saul/Paul at his conversion that he was “you will testify of what you have seen and the things I will yet reveal to you”.
   But it is the resurrection of faith we all confess at baptism that Paul was assigned to differentiate between the Pharisaic resurrection of a future last time event when the Lord said of these people “they will say look here and look there, but do not follow them”. It is  our profession and confession of faith that we are buried with Christ and then resurrected with him to walk in newness of life while we are in our human condition. “You shall be judged by every word that you speak”. Especially your public confessions, your baptism.
Heb 2 Therefor we must pay closer attention to what we have heard lest we slip, for if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received its just reward, what makes us think we shall escape judgement if we refuse such a great salvation. And it is a great salvation. Our sojournment is our departure.
   So it is the second coming seeker false prophets of today who have no shame in believing the same Pharisaical testimony that Paul was told by Christ to depart from, that Paul was to transform from. These second coming speakers who confess at baptism to the resurrection with the risen Lord, then hypocritical turn and talk about another resurrection of another raising of another savior with another saving and make themselves as much and enemy of Christ as Paul was as a Pharisee when the Lord said “why are you kicking against the goads? In this way Saul/Paul was the enemy. At his conversion He saw Christ as a great light brighter than any humanly seen light for Paul saw Him as He is. To accept Christ in His original form and not as a man for Paul did not describe the pierced side or the nail holes in the hands. A man was Christs temporary form that He transitioned from to show us the way.
 It was Paul who learned by revelations, meaning a multiple appearings of Christ for Paul to grow by degree to say “I have been crucified with Christ yet I live but not I its Christ that lives in me. And the life that I now live I live by faith in the Son of God who gave himself for me. If righteousness or the resurrection, comes any other way, the cross is unnecessary. Was He not raised? Then we are raised with Him if we are “in Christ “. If it comes any other way, then Christ died in vain. If Christ only confirmed a future resurrection He accomplished no new thing and we are still in our sins wallowing in our old nature.
So like we said, it was the religious order of that day that believed in a future resurrection that Paul came out of. They believe in the resurrection but a future one and that is what he was in error with and antagonized beleivers for. It was Christ who proved he was the resurrection and the new life with the raising of Lazarus before Christ showed His resurrection at the cross. He did not become the Resurrection, He was the ressurection.
Paul prayed “that the eyes of our understanding would be opened that we would know the exceeding greatness of his power that is in US that he displayed when God raised the man Jesus from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand. And that is what we ask you to do. Didn’t Paul say that of us in Ephesians 2? That we are seated in the heavenlies in Christ”? That “we would know the exceeding great power that is in us that he displayed when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him far above all power and principality in this age and the coming age”. And that is the point. In the coming age is the one that is even coming as we speak for it cometh not with (carnal) observation, being the eternal that overlaps us now. This includes “today if you can hear His voice”and every day, to accomplish the task for you to be seated in him. For this reason Paul said that we are seated with him in Heavenly places far above all powers and principalities being rulers over all things.
   This is the testimony that he had to conclude and to agree with to be qualified an apostle as one who saw the Lord. And He did, but not seeing the nail holes or the pierce in His side Paul saw the great light from heaven. And I pray that you do too. And we can see Christ as He is with the eyes of our understanding as the light brighter than humanly possible.
 We do this to testify of the Resurrection of faith too. Can you believe this? Well this is what we are asked to do. Believe something we cannot (carnally) see, but we can experience by faith. For “without faith it is impossible to please God. You must first believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of those who” wait for a 2nd coming?  No! We diligently seek him now and what he rewards you with are things from where he is. Eternal things, invisible things. If you cannot get past pleasing him by faith, if you cannot get past the obstacles that your eyes see and your ears hear, to believe the truth, you cannot have this. But he is a rewarder of those that can believe this by faith. And you are asked to follow those who through faith and patience inherit the promises” and so we do. Not promises of a dead piece of paper but of those who receive the thing that is said “if you are able to receive it” are you? “He comes and His reward is with Him” Why? Because He is the reward. Him and nothing else because everything belongs to Him.
So like Paul we speak of what we hear and testify to what we have seen, and what Paul heard and saw was a great light from heaven with the voice of the Lord. And the operative here is “being from heaven”. Scripture saying the light that shines seven times brighter than that of the Sun. Paul was speaking of another dimension. One that transcends the ability of the carnal senses of sight sound and smell. This is why later Paul prayed that the eyes of our understanding would be opened.  Yes! The eyes and ears of our understanding is our invisible part that interacts with the “eternal, immortal, invisible God. In this way the Kingdom of God is at hand. Why seek ye another?
The Kingdom of God is at hand.

THE FATHER AND SON ARE SEATED WAITING FOR THEIR ENEMIES TO BE SUBDUED

From Hebrews 10.12; Christ, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, 13 from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. 14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.

Hebrews 1 discusses how that Christ is now seated waiting till His enemies are made His foot stool. So here is the glorious truth about the gospel “once and for all delivered to the saints”. It is as the gospel is received in us and appropriated by faith that it subdues our enemies. We see and believe and appropriate the word of God as scripture says “for who shall ascend into heaven to bring Him down? Or who shall descend to the depths to bring Him up that we may do it? (Or how long must we wait for a 2nd coming? ) But no, the word is very near to you that you may hear it and do it. It is even in your heart.That if you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth…then you shall be saved. It is in this way that the words of God are actualized, initiated, and instituted by the working of faith “for the just shalllive by faith”. And it is in this way that Christ is seated with the Father waiting for us to join Him there with Him saying “follow methat where I am you may be also”. And how do we get there? By word. We appropriate His word.
You see the gospel message is a blue print for our transformation and transfiguration and not a survival guide for you to wait for a second coming.
There is no future saving or deliverance but the deliverance “once and for all delivered to the saints”. There is no future battle for the Father or Son because scripture says they “are seated waiting for His enemies to become His footstool“.
   The battle is in us now as we appropriate Gods promises by believing and confessing them into existence against the obstacles in our lives. This becomes our work of faith for God did not leave us here orphans or helpless, having to be saved from your fallen state or save you from a fallen world. We have been given the keys to the kingdom and the keys are His Word, the Son who was with the Father and became flesh for this “greater salvation”.
Hebrews 4.12 For the word of God is living and powerful (able to do this), and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
     So it is in this way that we put off the sin of the flesh and put on the new man who is the same image as Him who made us. Word.

     And this is the principle of faith, being the Word of God which is living and powerful in us, that we receive in our heart, believe it in our mind and speak it with our mouth, when the facts are contrary, when what we see doesn’t jive with what the spirit is saying and we choose to believe the word in spite of the physical proof screaming at us and tell us contrary to the spirit. “Hath God really said?” For those who follow God in this way? They are the children of God. (Romans 8)

You see there is no 2nd coming battle to wage for humanity as some suppose. Christ is seated waiting for His enemies to be subdued. Scripture makes no reference to a 2nd coming battle in a physical way. And scripture is clear that sin has been dealt with, that “the ruler of this world is judged” “satan has been cast down, Christ has been given authority over all flesh and “all things have been put under foot. The only enemy now is the sin of unbelief. (John 16.8)
So when scripture says “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could think or ask according to the power that works in us… to Him be the Glory in this age and every age amen.., It is that the Father is glorified in us by us re-iterating His words and confessed by our mouth that become our new reality. If you are fighting against Satan sin and death other than by scripture, meaning, the word of God, then you are fighting in vain. You see the battle field is in our mind saying “For the weapons of our warfare are mighty through God for pulling down strongholds and everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”. It was God who gave us the keys to the kingdom, being His words displayed on the pages of His book, to overcome the obstacles of our day saying “in the day of salvation I have heard and I have helped.Today is the day of salvation”. These are Gods words! Yes! And amen!
    This is how you overcome the obstacles you have. As much as we want to see a light from heaven and one ride in on the clouds to reach out to us and save us. The saving is done “in Christ “. Christ is “seated waiting for His enemies to become His footstool” subdued through you. In this way you show yourself a child of God by your words. His word active in you. This is the saving of the gospel by word and need not a second coming saving. Christ said “it is finished” and is seated victorious  in all authority, then gifting it to us who believe for us to become “the full measure and stature of Christ”. A duplocate of Christ to a perfect son “till we come to the full stature and likeness of Christ”.
This is for those of us who have returned to the Father, and what Paul was begging you to hear saying “16 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. ( now and not at a 2nd coming)18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

This then is salvation and the eternal gospel “once and for all delivered to us” to take us into the presence of the Almighty in the here and now.

Jacobs Ladder 4 The Purpose of Paul

The purpose of Paul

Paul was born in “due time”. To be an apostle he had to have seen our Lord. And he did. The 11 disciples thought Mathias was to replace Judas as “one who witnessed the resurrection”.  And he did. Mathias knew Christ in His in carnation, but it was Paul who saw Christ in His true self. Having seen a great light from Heaven he said “who are you Lord”. Paul later described that incident as having seen the Lord. Paul saw the “lo I am with you always” and not the one who has to come again.
     Paul was qualified but not like the 11. Paul did not witness the incarnation but as he said “the gospel I preach to you did not come by man (an incarnation) I did not receive it by man, nor was I taught it by man but by revelation of Christ”.  As Paul was on the road to Damascus he saw a great light that shone  brighter than the carnally visible sun and he said “Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecute. 16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.
This is proof of who Christ is.  He is not a man. And this shows us that the revelation of Christ has not just 1st and 2nd comings but is progressive in nature, that scripture saying of the revelation “ both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.” Paul was sanctioned to testify of the progressive revelations of Christ. Paul started preaching and became better and more clear by “the things which I will yet reveal to you.”
   This then is the proof that Paul witnessed the resurrection not as an event but a persona invisible to the naked eye. And it also shows that the revelation is progressive by multiple revelations not just 1st and 2nd comings. As Christ said of Himself “I am the resurrection”. Paul saw a resurrected, glorified Christ.  The very thing that the 2nd coming seekers look for in a carnal way. But that He is not. Paul meandered away from seeing Christ as a man needing to rule earth in a human form later saying “for it is God who commanded light to shine out of darkness who has shown in our hearts to bring to light the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” being Gods expressions snd behaviors . And he saw it first like that on the road to Damascus and circumvented the need for a 2nd coming to do so.
   It was because of this that Paul began his journey and transformation away from the Satanic antichrist way of thinking like the Jewish leaders who said “when does the Kingdom of God come?” The answer?  “It cometh not with (carnal) observation”. Luke 17.
This is why we need to see Paul’s letters as progressive and not all as having equal authority.  This is “rightly dividing the word of truth”.  We learn to see in the word who temporarily put on humanity,  the “lo I am with you always,  even to the end if the age”. The one who said “I will never leave you or forsake you”.  And if we can learn to see this we need not be preoccupied with another coming and another Kingdom because the  kingdom is now at hand.
     When the disciples were told “there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of God coming in power”? And this is what Paul experienced. A timeless event of a being outside of time. Some are delighting to see an event in time and matter.  Time and matter is unfit to fully display the One who is outside of time. The One who said “they shall not enter My rest. This one calls us outside of human boundaries like Paul said “You observe days months seasons and years.  I’m afraid for you that I’ve labored in vain “?
     Yes those who see the revelation of Christ as a physical event are in a scary mindset. It is not a 1st and 2nd coming but progressive revelations “until you come to a full measure and stature of Christ” through the gospel. The gospel defines the Full revelation through a series of smaller revelations for transformation, for transfiguration.  Your transfiguration.
     To be “the full measure and stature of Christ” is accomplished by faith which is our invisible embelical cord to the invisible God. Paul said ” I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation for all who believe. And salvation is the full package from sanctification  to justification atoned and glorified saint of which you are called to be.
   It is that our new bodies are as invisible and ubiquitous as His. And his exactness is what is gifted to us by the cross. This is what John saw from the book of Revelation when he saw one of us and tried to bow down to worship him. That  glory said “see that you do not do that because I too am one who keeps the testimony of God.  Worship Him”. This one has a glorified body before a 2nd coming, which the 2nd coming mindset denies for they wait for another man Jesus.
   So it is by the gospel the work of God has it’s conclusion and not for those who wait for another conclusion for the saving called the 2nd coming.
     Paul is one of the 12 and counted as foundation stones of the Kingdom of God of which all who can receive the conclusion of their teachings, that  is all who stand on their finished works are counted as “living stones” built on the foundation and more clearly seen outside their parrabolic form that was visual on earth to the carnal senses. But we are members of the house hold of God now.
     So if we get stuck in our thinking and transfiguration at mid way points in Paul’s transformation and transfiguration, we stop short of the full message that he was developing through his epistles, Meaning if we see all scripture as equally relevant, we stop short of the full gospel message.
    People who see all scripture equal, use lessor verses to cancel greater verses that are designed by God to conclude the gospel of God unto salvation and the work of God to be accomplished in our own personal walk of faith as we reach for why Christ laid hold of us”. And I assure you that we are apprehended by the word of God for something much greater than to wait for a person at a 2nd coming for a purpose to be revealed now. That is Christ in you. The hope of Glory. The Glory working in us now that creation groans to see. That creation desires to honor. That God desires to see for “it is the Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” and “I give you the keys to the Kingdom” being the Word of the gospel. And you can have it while those who resist God walk about you.
     This is why 1 John says of us “The world does not know us because it did not know Him”.  This is us “as He is” is our invisible part that co-rules and reigns. Those of us who like Christ who “being in the form of God thought it not robbery to be equal to God”? Yes! We sit with Him in the heavenlies. We sit beside Him. The price of the blood is a sufficient price for this gift and it insults God for you to refuse the gift. The second coming seekers reject this gift and ascribe it to another Jesus. That is another gospel. And that is the gospel Paul started with. But I assure you he didn’t stop there.
    So stand on the finished works of Christ and the foundation of the kingdom and accept that “ye are saints and fellow citezines of the house hold of God” now. The other kingdom coming is the competition that is to be rejected.
The Kingdom of God is at hand! Operative and active today

Our Transfiguration

Tried, trued and transfigured
When Christ was with his disciples he told them assuredly I say to you there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. It is here that Christ was saying that some of them would see him in his kingdom in great glory and power. And again but I tell you truly there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God. And it came to pass that Jesus took Peter James and John up to a high mountain and prayed and as He prayed the appearance of his face was altered and He became glistening white. So it was here that Christ showed himself as he truly is. He explained that they would see the Son of Man coming in great power and glory, meaning that while he was in his human body they would see him transfigured, that they would taste death and see something of the afterlife. And it was here that Christ showed his transfomation while He was incarnate for us to have hope of being transfigured in our incarnation. He showed them something all Second Coming seekers desire to see. What the Second Coming seekers desire to see is something not bound by time or those who were standing there that would see it before they would die would not see it because they too would have to wait for another coming of another Jesus and circumvent the words Christ just spoke. And this is what the Second Coming seekers do they circumvent the gospel. They neutralize the gospel. But it can be said of us as it was for them that there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see Christ transfigured.
   So if we can understand the Transfiguration as not being a spectacular carnal event called a second coming after the tribulation, that is if you can receive these words?  Then it is true for you, that you to not only can see the Transfiguration but that you can experience it for this is what we are asked to do. BE YE TRANSFIGURED! Romans 12
You see after the departure of Judas in his betrayal there was left an empty seat. And the 11 disciples drew straws and chose Mathias. But Mathias was short lived for along came the 12th born out of due time or better rendered from the Greek born in proper time and in his due order.
For one of the qualifications to be considered an apostle is to have seen the Lord. So along came another name Paul, the wicked man doing wicked works against the called. And this man’s account was he had seen a great light from heaven and asked him who are you lord why are you kicking against the goads? It was here that Paul saw the Lord. You see he had to see the Lord to be qualified as an apostle, and because he saw Christ as he truly is, not incarnate but as he truly is invisible. And this is the testimony of every true apostle.
   You see Paul was among the Jews who were expecting a coming king and a Co ming Kingdom like the 2nd coming seekers. Of which Christ represented and they rejected. But Paul experienced another King and another Kingdom, a non visual one. He saw him who is the same yesterday today and forever.
So the 11 saw Christ as a man and some saw him glorified king like the Second Coming concept even back in their day. Paul’s message was that the gospel I preach to you did not come by man nor was I taught by man but by revelation of Jesus Christ. And because he did not see the man Jesus but he saw Christ as he truly is? This is how he was qualified to be an apostle. Because he had seen the Lord but not the man Jesus
   So there are some things we need to understand about the Transfiguration for if we see Christ as a man, that is what we try to become like him but if we see him as he truly is? As he is eternal immortal invisible the only wise God? Then we can be transformed into that.
   The term Transfiguration only appears a few times in Scripture. Two of these times we already referenced in the man Jesus. There are two more times, one time in Romans 12. It says be ye transformed by the renewing of your min” and is rendered properly from the Greek be transfigured. And if we understand this correctly? We do not look for a carnal transformation a carnal or human Transfiguration. You see because we are instructed to be transfigured in our mind, this is the place of the Transfiguration and reasoning of our eternal parts being are circumcised heart and our soul. And from 2nd Corinthians 3:18 therefore we are being transformed or transfigured into his self same image from glory to glory as by the Spirit of the Lord. It is in this way that we become godly. We become godlike. And it is in this way that we become holy, that we become saints. This is our invisible part.
   It is in this way, by the renewing of the mind, that we put on Christ. It is in the mind, the interaction of the heart and the soul, are invisible parts, that we are clothed with what we see in Christ, when we behold him in glory. Like it says in Corinthians “transfigured  from glory to the glory as by the Spirit”. And the miraculous thing about this is that there is no human transformation visible. It is the mind. And if we cannot see him transfigured like those in the days of the man Jesus, if we cannot see him transfigured like Paul did as seeing him who is invisible, if we see Jesus as having to come back in power and glory before we can accept his transfiguration, then we cannot be transfigured either.  We subject all Scripture has having a fulfillment later to be glorified later and pass up a chance of our transfiguration now. If we think the transfiguration is a carnal thing like a rapture, our soul admits it cannot see him who is invisible. And you cannot be transformed. You cannot be transfigured. You reject the testimony that God gave of His son. That His son is a chip off the old block, identical to the Father. But you see a man and you commit the same blunder as the Jews.
    As it is said although they knew God they glorified him not as God but changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the corruptible man. So the Second Coming seekers do
They deny Christ and because they expect another incarnate Christ?  They become enemies of the gospel. And they are enemies because they reject the voice of him who calls us from heaven to heaven. This is the place of our calling and the reason why God sent His Son into the world? Was to show to us as we are in our humanity that the Incarnation and the Transfiguration can coexist. That “we have this treasure in earthen vessels” a disposable thing “that the glory and the excellence would be a god and not of ourselves”.
   So let us be about our Transfiguration. Let us renew our minds. Let’s let our minds be reformatted and fitted with the gospel. As Paul said “I am not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of God unto salvation”. And if this is true as we describe, then there is no need for a second coming transformation. If there is a Second Coming transformation, or a Second Coming Transfiguration, same word in the Greek, then the gospel is weak and you do need another access point to the kingdom. But if you can reject that false gospel and reformat your brain with these truths? Then you too can have the thing that is said. It can be said of you too that “there are some standing here today who shall see the Son of Man coming in great glory and power before you die. This is the gospel Paul spoke of saying “the gospel I preach to you did not come by man but by revelation”. A new understanding. Paul experienced the revelation of Jesus Christ and he did not have to go through the seven year tribulation and a rapture to see another Jesus for this to happen.
   So we encourage you to be refitted and reformatted with these truths to receive the gift of God and eternal life. BE YE TRANSFIGURED! For “today is the day of salvation” and today “the Kingdom of God is at hand” if you can receive it.

True reconciliation. To the beginning

    The religious bludgeoning of the body does not please God. Look at the prophets in the day of Elijah. The repetitious prayers are proof of unbelief or they would not repeat themselves. “Do not pray like the heathen for they think they will be heard by their many words” But “we speak and believe” and then we receive.
     It was said of Christ ‘I have come for you to have life abundantly “? And He did come. And we do have life. “He who has the Son has life”. Eternal life already.
   In the beginning it was not the body that was responsible for displeasing God but the mind that disbelieved and broke faith. This is why we are called to “be ye transformed (transfigured) by the renewing of your mind” and not the body. The body returns to the dust as stated in the beginning.
    It is in the reasoning of the mind behind the choices that compels the body.That was the place where Adam fell.  There is nothing recorded about him bruising his knees when he fell. He fell in understanding. The mind was in error, not the body. The body can do nothing apart from the spirit, for “the body without the spirit is dead” being instructed by the mind.
     So as we are to be renewed in thinking, being that our mind is re scripted and reformatted by Gods word. That we are restored to “that which is from the beginning”. To what Adam had before he fell. The flesh does not have to be removed but the filth of carnal thinking does. This is how we learn to think like God for “we have the mind of Christ”.
  Collossians 2.  In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins[c] of the flesh, (but not the flesh itself, just the sins) by the circumcision of Christ,12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith  in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him”.  And this is all done outside of the human perceptions of sight and hearing in the realm of faith. “To those who have ears to hear and eyes to see” of a different nature.
   God made man from the dust of the earth.  He set him “over the works of His hands” and told him to “go forth and have dominion”. And this was while he was in the body formed of dust of which God had said “it is good, very good”. This is the objective of salvation and the redemption and restoration in the mind and not the body. But the body can be the lucky recipient of a renewed mind for “as He is, so are we in this world” and “we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the glory and the excellency may be of God and not ourselves”.
   Mankind was made of clay like Adam to reflect the glory of God while in a body in this way but “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. And the purpose of the Gospel is to be restored to the glory while we are in our humanity saying “we are transformed into His (Christ’s) same image from glory to glory as by the spirit of God ” in this age of time and matter, to have dominion. (2 Cor 3.18) To rule and reign. And we do this “in Christ”. Does not scripture say that we are seated in the heavenlies in Christ”? And “of His fullness we have received”? This is what the spirit of satan blinds people to and delays them from. And they call it a second coming. To be transformed by a future event of a physicality and not the spirit. (Read 2 Corinthians  3 and 4) The second coming mindset is the veil that blinds you and keeps you from your transformation. They just redefine Gods Kingdom to the view the Jews had. The one they were condemned for. A gospel of a future coming king and kingdom saying. “When does the kingdom of God appear?” Christ answered them “It cometh not with observation”. This is what the 2nd coming seekers reject and say it does. What did Christ then tell His followers? “They will say look here and look there. DO NOT GO AFTER THEM!
   It is an end times saving that Paul misunderstood in his first letters that competes with the message of “that which is from the beginning” spoken by John the beloved who also said ” what is it that overcomes the world? Our faith!”  Paul later learned by revelation and displayed more clearly in the books of Ephesians and Collossians. John said “we are in the end times, but some still say it’s later. And they call it “a 7 year tribulation. John said “They came out from among us? And they did. The 2nd coming gospel use the same scriptures in a different way. A way that denies the savior of the cross and ascribes a saving to happen later. Woe

  The truth is the saving and redemption is to what  Adam lost. A co-conscientiousness with God the Father. As Christ prayed “Father that they may be one with us”.  This is the reconciliation of the cross Paul saying “God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us this word of reconciliation. (not a future reconciling)20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. (this is what Adam lost and passed onto all humanity21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (Adams loss restored, Adams fallen lifted back up, raised and resurrected). This is not a gift delegated to a 2nd coming savior but the cross as having happened. The reconciliation of the world described in these verses are a new world view that the created world responds differently to.

 

Adam departed from his God given role and took on the contrast. The creation that he was to “have dominion over” now had dominion over him saying “of the sweat of your face you shall work the earth and thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you”. God did not curse the earth or Adams flesh. Adam started thinking backwards relying on his lower nature and its senses. So implemented the opposite of faith being shame, fear and self preservation as the carnal senses informed him. Proof of this is he did work with his hands in the Garden as evident by the fig leaf where he covered himself in a shameful way. Until then God was his covering and to that we are restored by means of the gospel. Like when God visited Abraham God  said to Him “I am your shield and your exceedingly great reward”. That about covers it. What more could you want?  You see all Gods works are word.

      But Adam left his God given role and received the opposite.  Instead of having dominion? He now was dominated by the very thing he was to rule. The “work of His hands” was because a spiritual polarity shift took place. His lower level took center stage and became responsible to cover and provide for himself. He stood alone. He lost the Holy spirit and the ability to do the work of the Father. WORD.  He was thinking backwards. His mind was now darkened and opened up a void in himself of darkness. This is the place where the spirit of God was. Which is now the place of a darkened heart to those who are disobedient. Adam was providing for himself as evident by the fig leaf and rejected Gods provisions. From this he needs to be redeemed, restored and renewed. He needs to be saved from this .

   And this is what the gospel does to those who hear Gods word and believe it. We are re clothed. We are covered and refitted to glorify God by doing what God does, which is to speak a thing to be. “For greater works shall you do because I go to the Father” were the words of Christ”. In this way “we are a kind of first fruits of His creation. We are His kind and not fish, fowl or animal. This is what it means to “put on Christ.  And this is mandated now and not at a 2nd coming. We become saints, holy and glorious like “the Father of Glories”. We become “the perfect man is able to bridle his mouth”.

   The second coming mindset is nothing but a series of formulas and carnal computations applying Gods word in a way to appease the carnal senses that in effect makes God weak and unavailable as they wait for another carnal event. We are instruction to “cast down arguments and every thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”. And that is what they do. They obscure the truth to unsuspecting souls. But we destroy their lies. And it is in this way that we over come Satan, sin, death and the 2nd coming gospel.
Also when we are instructed to enter His rest? His rest is from working. We are invited to stop working the curse. To retire from that. When Gods word became flesh He said “come unto me all ye that are laden with burdens and I will give you rest. This has full meaning being associated with working the earth in sweat yielding thorns to be reversed and enter Gods rest and reliance on Him. This can only be done when you do what Adam ceased to do. The works that you cover yourself with is then replaced by Christ. As it says “He is the propitiation for the whole world” not just your personal short comings. You must believe again. He distrusted and followed another. He was left alone to provide for himself. He did not trust and believe in God. To trust in God and His perfect provisions saying “from every tree you may freely eat” It is as if God said everything is freely yours to use at your discretion, and now through the gospel “of His fullness we have received”.
      Allow Him to cloth you and discard the fig leave. Lay aside all the guilt, shame and fear and believe. Does not scripture say that “God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could think or ask according to the power that works in us “? Is He in you?
     When Adam fell he awakened lust and he left the provisions of God. It was put in play for man to be subdued in that way. Lust being a carnal appetite that is never satisfied. But in Christ we are “filled to the full”. As He said “whoever believes in me shall never thirst”
    “We have been delivered from the corruption that is in the world through lusts” and because of this “we are partakers of the divine nature”. And the exchange and polarity reversal takes place by receiving the holy spirit. Did you receive that?
   So if we can learn to appropriately apply the gospel to our thinking and be re-scripted in our mind to receive the saving of the cross, we need not look for another saving. A 2nd coming saving. A savior. A 2nd coming savior. Respond to the “Lo I am with you always” and “Behold, I stand at the door and knock”. Be restored to this world view. Be renewed to this.
1 John 2,24 If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
You see it is from the beginning. It is not an end time thing at all.
    The Kingdom of God is at hand!

Resurrection Defined

Download PDF
1/02/16
Resurrection is commonly taught  as taking place at the end of the carnal life, at the death of the human body. That heaven and the Kingdom of God or an eternal bliss is later.
   To understand scriptural resurrection we must first understand what the fall is because resurrection is essentially  a reversal of the fall of Adam and Eve. “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. To this they must be lifted from the fall to be raised or resurrected,  restored, renewed and made whole. And how is this to be done? Through the gospel.
   Resurrection is a restoration a redemption and a renewal of what was lost and displayed  in the account of the Garden of Eden. This is when and where mankind fell saying “in that day you shall surely die” and it was immediate. They spiritually died by loosing the indwelling of Gods Holy Spirit. In the beginning God created man from the dust of the Earth then he breathed in him the breath of life and he became a living soul. When he fell he lost the Breath of Life. He lost eternal life and was sent out of the garden saying that he was denied the tree of life is to eat and live forever. To this he needed be restored and this is the purpose of the Gospel. For us to be a living soul and eat of the tree of life and live forever. If we believe the gospel this is what we receive.
For the reversal of the fall we learn from book of Romans. ” Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life”. And ” 10 And “if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead also gives life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who (now) dwells in you”.  And “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.”  
   This is scriptural resurrection without a visual death. And when “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” He demonstrated for us that godliness, meaning God-Like-Ness can happen in our human bodies. Christ had a human body and said “I am the resurrection and the life” and Adam had a body before he fell when the Father said of him “it is good, very good.” This is the Restoration in the resurrection.
 Now from the old testament.
Isaiah said of this “Your dead shall live;
Together with my dead body[b] they shall arise. (26.19)
   Here we have a revelation from the prophet, that we rise in Christ. “In His dead body we shall arise”. We rise in his dead body not our own. This is what it means to be “in Christ” and not “in Adam”. All who are in Adam are dead, but in Christ we live. We associate with Christ of who Isaiah was talking about through baptism by the working of faith when we denounced our previous association with our Adam fallen sinfulness and die to that to come up out of the water proclaiming to be righteous and new. And if we profess that? You can be sure that God will hold you accountable to that event and your words.
To be “in Christ” is to be in the new Adamic replacement. Paul called Christ “the last Adam” who became “a life giving spirit”. He goes on to say that “we knew Christ in a human body , but we know Him like that no more” describing Christ’s invisibleness, but also showing that “in Him dwells the fullness of the God head body” while He was incarnate. Yes! The Word became flesh and dwelled among us for us to be like Him while we are incarnate saying “as He is so are we in the world”. And we are like Him now if we can learn to receive it.
Here then is the problem. We baptize in religious settings then turn and talk about the 2nd coming Christ. To another resurrection of another  time when a God man will visit planet earth and deliver us from all our woes and resurrect or rapture our mortal bodies and this is the error. Because “From dust ye are to dust you return” and flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom”. But the mind does, and “that which is flesh is flesh and that which is spirit is spirit, you must be born again”. How? By these words. “We are brought forth by the word of truth to be a first fruit of His creation” while we are in our humanity. Or if you can’t believe this? Then believe the lie and wait.
   Was the Word who became flesh they call Jesus the savior? Did He rise from the dead? Then perform your duty of faith and believe! Rise with His dead body and receive your inheritance now. For all the promises of God are yes and amen in Christ”. And “TODAY is the day of salvation.  That other message is of another saving of another savior of another resurrection in a different time? That is what detains many from their inheritance now.
  Here is another perspective.  2 Corinthians 5.1 For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked.
    Here we have Paul explain that our new body is not physical saying when the body is destroyed we shall not be found naked. Why? Because hopefully you are not waiting for a new physicality but are being clothed with our new habitation which is from heaven now. “lest we be found naked”. That is where the 2nd coming mindset leaves you. Naked. We are to be clothing ourselves with our heavenly habitation, our attire our new nature now. The new body is now as we re-assemble the testimony of the Word of God being the very genetic code of Gid we absorb in ourselves and become new. Even as Paul went on to say: 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 this all happens in the here and now because of the proof at the cross. Not at an illusive 2nd coming. “We are a new creation”? Yes! The newness is as we put on Christ as scripture mandates. We see Him as He is before He became flesh and dwelled among us. Which is? Invisible like the Father. The Word of God fully expresses the thoughts if God and the two are one. We become one with them “for we have the mind of Christ”. No Man has seen the Father ? Yes, but Christ declared Him” for our transfiguration. He made the Father visible to the respirited mind of faith. Even as the man Jesus said ” He who has seen Me has seen the Father and from now on you have seen Him and known Him”. How? By revelation. Revelation being a renewed thinking as we accept God as He truely is. Eternal, immortal, invisible. The only wise God”. 
Paul instructs us to put on our heavenly habitation from God eternal in the heavens now while we are sojourning in the human body so that we are not found naked? Meaning spiritually naked. Not naked like Adam who clothed himself in a fig leaf and not of God. He chose the physical over the spiritual and broke free from God. This is the reason Christ prayed “Father that they may be one (equal) with us”. So the resurrection is our invisible, eternal part that we put on now.
      Doesn’t scripture say that we are being transformed into His self same image from the glory to the glory by the spirit? Then why are some waiting and looking to the sky as tho they will be lifted up and leave their empty clothes laying on the ground as if they discard their falleness then? These people are “poor blind and naked”. Poor because they reject the gift, blind because they think the Kingdom is later, and naked because they wait for a physical change. Even Paul said in 1 Corinthians that the physical body is first and then the spiritual.  The body returns to dust. But some think it’s raptured?
So we have to discard the traditional religious concept of new life after a dead body as Jesus said ‘he who believes in Me has passed from death to life ”  and receive the resurrection of faith As Defined By scripture. That “TODAY is the day of salvation “. That we return to being a living soul. God says “I have heard and i have helped” And as John the Baptist said ” behold the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world”? And he did to the renewed mind by renewing the spirit. Meaning the saving from the world and the consequences of the curse for the restoration the redemption the renewal and the resurrection as scripture repeatedly says.
     This is the fulfillment  of what Jesus said “Father I pray not that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from evil ” so He does. The curse is reversed to the renewed mind of faith. This is our invisible part that we keep when the body is discarded and after. The body cannot add or take away from this. But the mind can for “we are partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust”? So we do.
      Simply put resurrection means we are no longer in a fallen condition with Adam “. We are lifted up from the fall to what Adam lost. We are raised “with My dead body they shall arise”.. Adam and Eve fell and need to be lifted back up from a fallen state, a state of being dead by loosing fellowship with God by loosing His holy spirit. That was death, not a physical death.
     To be respirited means to be redeemed, restored and recreated to realize that everything from the beginning has been good very good and to partake of that. That is “if you can receive it”.
    We are raised up “to the last day” and not at the last day. Jesus tried to explain this to Mary and she didn’t get it so He cried.  Why? Because it’s the Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” which the 2nd coming seekers deny because they look for a physical event, but the fall was spiritual. There was no cataclysmic event when he fell and there is none when we rise. It happens in the blink of an eye, unnoticeable to human perceptions. It was in the thinking that the departure took place.
 
We are in Adams “In that day ye shall surely die”, or we are “in Christ, in “The Day of our Lord” by what we believe “The Lords Day”, “In That Day”. We are in the day you shall surely live. This is TODAY if you can hear His voice. And “see that you do not refuse Him who speaks from heaven?
     There are two time frames. The many days of Adamic humanity defined by days measured in 24 hour intervals where everything is in a constant fight with death and decay, or “That Day” known as the day of the Lord. The day where there is no night for the Lamb is it’s light. The day that has no start or end where the Almighty lives. Not Adams days but “That Day”.
Isaiah 59.1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear.” But some preach of another saving and rob people of Gods saving power. The 2nd coming mindset creates double minded people who are “unstable in all their ways, let not that man suppose he will receive anything from the Lord”. (James 1.8) So they pray repetitiously and say Gods will be done, but scripture says “ask anything in My name and the Father will do it”. They do not have this. They do not have the correct savior.
This is what it means to be “in Christ”. Our old man is buried with Him through baptism so that as He was raised from the dead to newness of life so are we. And this resurrection happens by faith through the gospel. That “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation” which is? Peter said “you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.” What does this have to do with an end time scenario?  And what does it have to do with a carnal rapture?
Lets look at some more. When you start to see it the scriptures take on new meaning. For if you see the saving as later? You are behind the veil. Your mind is darkened by the God of this age. Read: 2 Corinthians 3 and 4 to understand the veil more) 
Collossians 2.11 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins[c] of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the (invisible to the human eye) working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him.
So if you are blinded to this you can’t have this. Your mind is darkened by a distorted gospel. But “we rejoice with joy inexpressable and full of glory”.
Gods Kingdom is at hand, on the tip of your tongue. His kingdom is for today. It is Him putting off the body of sins of the flesh. Like the circumcision of the heart. WE ARE MADE NEW. We are in this way a new creation,  restored to the beginning to sojourn as man was intended before the fall. This is “that which is from the beginning.
To put off the body of the sins of the flesh is not to put off the body but the sins. The thing the flesh embodies is a belief system. Much like a book embodies certain characteristics? The book can remain but edit out certain concepts so too with the body. “For we have this treasure in earthen vessels so that the glory may be of God and not ourselves”. Yes. It’s a new embodiment of principles much like rewriting the content of the book. The story line changes. The rescripting changes the ending.
      This is what happens when we put off the sins of doubting God and distrusting Him. We “through faith anf patience inherit the promises”. Not being just a remembrance of the promises but inheriting the very character content the promises describe. We inherit the very scripting of God, the very spirit by which it is written and not just words waiting to be fulfilled at some ambiguous 2nd coming.
This is the concept of “putting on Christ” one attribute at a time “till we all come to the fullness and stature of the Son of God”. A replica. For “as He is so are we in the world”. And we are that as we adopt His embodiment of words being re-spirited for faith. For “faith comes by hearing the words of God”. We grow in this way. We look at scripture “as in a mirror” till we become the thing that is defined between the pages. “Till the day (of the old way of thinking) dawns and the morning star rises in our hearts”. This is the transformation into Gods invisible attributes described in scripture “from glory to the glory as by the spirit”.
    This is totally different then the religious concept of putting off the flesh altogether as though that is sin or bad. That we don’t do because the flesh itself is only a reflection of the contents, “So let your light shine”?
     Now if what we just talked about could be true. If you think you need to bludgeon or discard the vessel? You see Adam was in his human vessel before he died in the spirit. He then walked in death having lost Gods Holy Spirit. So the resurrection can happen while we are in our humanity by putting off only the sins of the flesh and not the vessel of the flesh itself. This is the true non religious resurrection as defined by scripture. For “those who are the sons of God are those who follow the spirit of God”. And this is what God expects us to do. “Lest we be found naked”.
This all happens as Christ showed. The pre-exsitent word became flesh and dwelled among us”? Here is the proof that the resurrection can happen in the human body. Did not the man Jesus say “I am the resurrection and the life”? Check mate. You need to make an adjustment to your thought process to receive this because “He has given us everything that pertains to life and Godliness according to the knowledge of Him who cailed us to glory and virtue., This is the treasure in earthen vessels. To put off the body of the sins of the flesh and not the body itself.
The Kingdom of God is at hand, active for today.

Define Carnal Christian

Download PDF
Carnal Christian is a term typically used for a believer who is worldly minded not being hungry for things of the spirit.
   Some think the contrast of being a carnal Christian is to be religious by casting off earthly pleasures. To be given into to church and praying and evangelizing, but this is not so.
    It was the religious leaders of that day that the man Jesus chided with the most saying “you sons of Satan, brood of vipers and whited sepulchers. You travel land and sea to make converts and doing so you make them twice the sons if Hell as yourselves “. These were the biggest offenders in carnality and offenders of the faith. It was not the common folk who didn’t go to church like the harlots, tax collectors and wine bibblers that were chided. These were the objects of attention from Jesus and not the Pharisees and Sadducee’s, priests and scribes, these were the objects of scorn.
   A carnal Christian correctly defined is someone who interprets Gods word in a carnal way to appease their outward human senses of sight, smell and sound with disregard for the invisible things of God. They want something tangible. Like Thomas “show us the Father and that will suffice”. The Lord spoke of these people saying “seeing with their eyes they see not, and hearing with their ears they hear not for it is with the heart that one must see and here with to understand the things of God. It is said of Moses that “he endured as seeing Him who is invisible”. What about you?
   Paul the apostle said “The carnal mind is enmity against God. It is not subject to the laws of God and neither indeed can be so those who are in the flesh (using the human resources of sight and sound) cannot please God”. Why? Because they want to experience God with their carnal senses and reject Him who is immortal eternal and invisible in His natural composition, whom we experience in the spirit of the mind, the place of our transfiguration “.
  It is said in the book of Hebrews to those who want please God that” one must first believe that He is, and that He rewards those that diligently seek Him”. Yes, God rewards diligently and quickly.
   And here is the infraction of the 2nd coming seeker. They believe that the Sons 1st attempt at salvation was incomplete and He must come back after some 2000 plus years and appease their carnal senses of sight and sound by a spectacular event. That Satan rules  (Hebrews 2.14 Satan is destroyed + John 3.8 John 16.9) and Jesus must come back to fix this. They believe that Satan rules the world and in this way they resurrect and empower their own foe “the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience” instead of resurrecting themselves.
It is written of them that “Satan is a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour, experienced by our brotherhood in the world”. Yes they are in the world using their carnal senses and drawn away from the true faith by this. But “we testify to what we have seen and report what we hear”. Us who have ears to hear.
    The is the fulfillment of “when you see the abomination of desolation spoken by Daniel the prophet, Let him who reads understand “? Run from that gospel. A man named Jesus will not rule planet earth from Jerusalem.  That is the abomination that kills your relationship with God and grieves the Holy Spirit. “For although they knew God, they glorified Him not, and turned the Glory of the incorruptible God into the image of a man”. That is the infraction. It  is you letting Satan rule through you for you are “taken captive to do His will”. But it should be said of you “you are the temple of God” and not a piece of real estate in Israel. That is a carnal interpretation of Gods word and it the very “enmity against God”. We are the temple of God. This is what is keeping Gods salvation from you and keeping you out of Heaven, Gods ubiquitous, ever ready Kingdom of God “at hand”.
   And you overcome that abominable beleif that “makes desolate” by being renewed in the mind. “Whom the Lord consumes with the breath of His mouth (word) and the brightness of His coming”(revelation by the Spirit) through the gospel “once and for all delivered to the saints “.  How? By applying His word by faith, the word of His mouth. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (visibly tangible) but mighty through (the invisible God) through pulling down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God “. And so we do. We pulverize thst lie.
   You see Jesus does not need to come again because “He is the same yesterday today and forever ” (Hebrews 13.8)  and He appeared once at the end of times to put away sin once and for all”. But this they deny.
 ” We have been given everything that pertains to life and god-like-ness according to knowledge of Him who calls us by glory to virtue” which is us putting on His attributes. “For in so doing you will be given abundantly an entrance into the kingdom “(2nd Peter 1)
If Jesus came back in the way they suppose He would not do something for them He has not already done. And He doesn’t like to repeat Himself. We repeat Him by speaking this gospel saying “Father I pray not just for these but also those who will believe in Me through their word “. (John 17) So we do.
  It was displayed at the cross that Satan was judged by nailing our condemnation and death there as a public spectacle. That all who believe may receive eternal life. “God sent His Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to condemn sin in the flesh” to respirit a people and put out of business the carnal senses of sight and sound for relating to God. “To those who have ears to hear” and a different nature than carnal.
    “To those who have ears to hear” is a biblical phrase to those who have been respirited with Gods Holy Spirit  to relate to Him that way “for the time is coming and now is when you will no longer worship God in Sameria or Jerusalem but in Spirit and truth. For God is Spirit and seeketh such”. (John 4). He wants your invisible part. That’s what closest resembles Him of
being flesh of My flesh (of invisible attributes seen in Christ) and bone of My bone (of being sound doctrine).
So a carnal Christian clearly defined is someone who thinks God must become a man again and do another work and another saving in a way they can see with their eyes and in doing do they reject Him who is invisible, who is the same yesterday today and forever. (Hebrews 13.8 )
 And this is why the 2nd coming gospel message is enmity against God for they say “look here! And look there! But Jesus said  “do not go after them!”  Why? Because “it cometh not with observation” of the carnal senses. (Luke 17). The second coming message is exactly the same as the message of the Pharisees.  “When does the Kingdom of God come?”
The Kingdom of God is at hand. Active and perfecting saints, even in our day.
TODAY IS THE DAY OF OUR LORD AND THE DAY OF OUR SALVATION. TODAY IF YOU WILL HEAR HIS VOICE.

Jacobs Ladder 2 Colossians, The 2nd coming and Rapture

Download PDF
Continued from https://www.hiskingdomathand.com/2015/08/jacobs-ladder-steps-to-the-kingdom/
As we discussed in previous articles that in 1 Corinthians 15 Paul says that Christ must reign till He has put all things under His feet, but in Ephesians Paul learned by a new revelation that all things have been put under Christs feet for Christ to be “all in all”. His words are contradictory. Paul had not learned yet, he had not been renewed in the spirit of his mind yet to that revelation.(Ephesians 3.1-4) So for him “all things have been put under His feet” was not yet true. Meaning that Paul’s epistles differ according to each new revelation going up steps by degree like we do. We hear a thing by the spirit, we believe and confess. Then the word is tried in our mind “hath God really said” then we receive through faith and patience the thing that was said.
   This is how faith works and this is how we grow in the spirit as Paul did. That is why Paul and all the apostles are listed in Revelation as being the “foundation of the city”. We stand on their works, we climb up the ladder of the revelations they spelled out. Which is why we can say that “we are now fellow citizenes, saints and members of the house hold of God” That is “if you can learn to receive it”. Or… you can wait for another. But for us who believe? We receive an element given to us in Gods word and it becomes true for us so we too can truly say “the Kingdom of God is now” for ” we are fellow citizens and members of the house hold of God… If you can receive it?
Jacob had a revelation of the place of God when he saw the angels descending on a ladder and named the place Bethel. And Christ fulfilled that saying to one who confessed Jesus was the son of God. Christ said “from here on you will see the angels of God ascending and descending upon the son of man”, meaning Jesus the man with the Spirit of God. Jesus being the word of God, is the ladder of God. It is as we follow the Spirit through Word that we enter the Kingdom.
So now here are more contradictions from Paul saying in Colossians “giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. 13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, (notice there is no mention of a 2nd coming Kingdom)  in whom we have redemption through His blood”. It is here again that Paul shows a deviation from an early writings of a rapture or catching up. 
 
 
But there are many that do not believe that we have been translated into the Kingdom saying Christ must still come do this and they expect the Rapture or a personal death. They do not believe the verses we just quoted and expect a new physical body then but let’s look at what else Paul learned. 
 
 
Colossians 2 1 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins[c] of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised (resurrected) with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together (Resurrected) with Him,
 
Hmm. Here it says that our body is put off by the circumcision by Gods invisible hand and I assure you that it happened in the twinkling of an eye,  unnoticeable to human perceptions.  No where here does it go into a Rapture, a fleshly resurrection or a second coming Kingdom, for”flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom”, meaning bodily resurrection after death. Pauls mind was washed from that carnal interpretation of Gods word by revelation. “For all the law and the prophets were until John the Baptist, now the Kingdom is preached and all (who are able to recieve it) are pressing in”. Are you?
 
 
  Paul also says that we are resurrected the same way the body is put off “without hands” by the invisible work of God through faith which is your invisible embelical cord to the Invisible God that becomes a highway in the spirit. And this happens when? At a 2nd coming? No. The process starts at baptism and is culminated by the trying of the words in our heart by the leading of Holy Spirit in our lives of the words that are sown, being the things of “hath God really said” that we learn to believe.  These are the words in scripture, not mine.
 
From Colossians “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, These too are the words in scripture.
But it is the 2nd coming gospel that tap dances around “putting off the old body and put on a new body. They reject “putting on the new man who is renewed in knowledge” by revelation. They wait for a bodily Rapture. They expect a body like Jesus the man but it was “the Word became flesh and dwelled among us”. A carnal composition is not who he naturally is. He was only flesh temporarily. He did this for us to be re imaged like the pre incarnate Christ saying “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” but he really is not eternally flesh, and he dwells among us even now in spirit and truth. Just as He was man and God, so are we… if we have His Spirit.
 Philipeans 2.5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God.
  And so we do.
    But for those who reject a new invisible body like Gods, the scripture is fulfilled that ‘they know his works but they know not his ways” His works may be seen in the physical but his ways are always invisible. It is of the physical works that they see and they think they know him, but the ways of the Spirit are always invisible in the twinkling of an eye.
     In this is “the carnal mind that’s enmity against God for it is not subject to the law of God neither can be” for they know his works because the words are visible but they know not his ways because it’s invisible that made the visible for all things are made by the word of God so that what appears is made out of what is invisible so when the man Jesus was flesh, it was a temporary fixture for the living God to show to humanity His invisible components. They knew his works but not His ways as He whisks about us even now. As Paul had said and acts 17 that he has appointed times and seasons so that we could hope and groap and try to find him for he is not far from any one of us” as though we need to wait two thousand years to see him for “it is in him we live and well and have our being”
    so he has given the guidelines and the parameters in which he must make manifest and we can accepted or rejected and we rejected when he expect them to become man again or we expect them to become an invisible to make us believe this is the carnal mind its enmity against God not subject to the laws of God because having eyes they see not ears they here not because it is with the heart that one needs to see and hear the things that are important to God this is the true uncircumcised heart and the truth Israel of
For the grace of God that bring salvation has appeared all teaching that denied ungodliness and worldly last we should love reaches over and just looking for the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior that we should live right to sober and just in this present day in age looking for the day in the glorious appearing of our great God and safe who has redeemed us from every lawless deed to purify for himself a people are you that people or do you seek another
Look for similar articles written by Paul that shows his progression to the true that is in Christ.
 
 

Redemption in 3 Stages

Download PDF

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

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

 

The Curse Reversed with creation

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

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

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

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

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

 

To purify as He is pure

The resurrection of life is available now and the new creation is available now. The transformation by the Spirit from glory to glory is available now, and putting on Christ is available now. This is true godliness, or God-like-ness.

 Anyone looking for another coming one to save us from planet earth to change you in a carnal way cannot receive these things because for them it is later. Their heart is hardened and their mind is darkened by an expectation of this age from the God of this age with all lying signs and wonders. For they neither see it or know it with carnal senses. Like the wind so is everyone born of the invisible Spirit. I know it for it is in me.
We have by faith now what the second coming seekers want as fact. But faith is an invisible substance, Gods substance, Gods reality. God is spirit and truth and seeketh such. This is why without faith it is impossible to please God. It is the carnal mind that is enmity against God. Why? Because it interprets scripture into time and matter and they call it the second coming. God is not these.

From John 3.1 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God![a] Therefore the world does not know us,[b] because it did not know Him. 
That is right. The world does not know us because it cannot see the born of the spirit man with human senses. As Jesus said “He who has seen me has seen he Father” was not talking about a robe and sandals but His invisible attributes and this is what we become.
  These are what He portrayed about the Father saying “he who has seen me has seen the Father. These are things to be seen with the heart and not the carnal senses that do not and can never know God. But we know Him and have seen Him. Jn 14.7 + I Jn 3.6 It is the invisible attributes they do not recognize. As is states in 1 John 3 that we His children, purify ourselves as He is pure.
 
Yes, we become pure as He is pure, we become transparent even as He is transparent, we become holy. This is why we are called saints now.  We see Him transparent, transfigured and  pure and we receive this (I Cor 3.18). We absorb His fullness. His invisible power and Godhead. For “of His fullness we have received”.
  We are not like those who it is said “although they knew God they glorified Him not as God but they turned the glory of the incorruptible eternal invisible God into the image of a man, that must come back to save us in a carnal way to the carnal senses. They think He is a creature bound by events subject to time and matter. They refuse to accept Him as He truly is for it is He “who alone has immortality dwelling in unapproachable light”.
   And of this? It is by”the appearing of our savior Jesus Christ who has abolished death and brought immortality to light through the gospel”. And this is how He appears to us, through the gospel, by revelation. It is not delegated to a second coming one, but by the blood of Christ through the eternal spirit.
“For He who is coming comes and He does not tarry. Now the just will live by faith but if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him”.  Hebrews 10.37
   He is not waiting for 2000 plus years so do not draw back into the 2nd coming physical appearing gospel  for the just who live by faith enjoy the full benefits of God in the here and now. How? By His spirit. It effects the physical but physical He is not but spirit and truth. John 4
Yes, so we see Him as He is through the assorted revelations in our walk in the here and now, putting on Christ one revelation at time until we come to the measure and stature of the fullness of Christ, a perfect man. So we too can say “the god of this age comes and he has nothing in me”.  For even as with the Jews who were out to kill Christ, He walked through their midst. And He did this before He displayed resurrection status at the cross. Like He said to Mary with Lazarus “I am the resurrection” He did not have to become anything He already wasn’t.
Even as Paul spoke of Christ being in the form (embodiment) of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God. Him taking on the form of a man, temporarily adopting an image He naturally is not,  Having satisfied His mission, John says He returned to the Father.. The form of a man He keeps no more. He divested Himself of those perishable rags. His mortal body was sown corruptible, raised incorruptible. Sown in weakness, raised in strength. This is why Paul says that “We once knew Christ according to the flesh. Henceforth know we him like that no more”. This is why the testimony from the Holy Spirit about Christ says He returns to the Father and you see Him no more. Meaning in a carnal way. Meaning the second coming Jesus man is not of the Father but of this age. Jesus said His kingdom is not of this age. The one of time and matter but the next Jesus is.
 
Jn 12.45 He who sees Me sees Him who sent Me.
Jn 14. He who has seen me has seen the (invisible transparent) Father
 
This is us being transformed into the same full image from glory to glory by the spirit in the here and now and not another. Salvation and transformation is now. Today, if we will hear His voice! We become pure as He is pure, transparent as He is transparent, transfigured tried and true like His true self which is spirit and truth. We become like Him. We see Him as He is. That which is born of flesh is flesh, but we are born of the spirit. Define that in human terms. This is why flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom.
 
This is why “the world can neither see us or know us”. This is why the world doesn’t know Him or see Him. This is why it is said of the spirit “whom the world cannot know or see, but the spirit will be with you and in you”. I know the spirit and see the spirit. 
 
As Eve was drawn out of Adam and exposed, so too are all from that creation. In contrast the Spirit is hidden “In Christ” as are all that are born there. Ubiquitous, invisible, immortal. This is what those of the world can neither see or know, but I do. And it is this spirit, the comforter, the helper, Heavenly Jerusalem the mother of us all.. that is for us who are born from above. Or else who are you born from? I see her and know her. She differs to Her Head and as Christ said  “the spirit will take what is mine and declare, manifest it to you” so She does. This is the new creation. This is the Heavenly Jerusalem our Mother (Gal 4.26) Unless you think Heavenly Jerusalem is being built, then who is your mother? From whom are you born again? But Heavenly Jerusalem is  invisible and ubiquitous as are all the elements, articles, utensils and buildings of the Kingdom of God in whom I reside. That now “we are fellow citizines, saints and members of the house hold of God” in the here and now, and not with held for a second coming.
 
I reside with Her and in Her who is in Him. She is my mirror where I see the Glory of the invisible God and I am transformed by the Glory to the Glory into His same full image in the here and now to fulfill what Jesus said, Who cannot lie or slow down His word for a moment let alone 2000 years He said “Father I want those who you have given me to be with me, to behold my Glory”. Who also said “Father the Glory you have given me I have given them”. And He did. If not what glory are being transformed by? It is this glory shown by the spirit of God, my mother and the Bride of Christ, this Glory she shows me transforms me into the same full image of the invisible eternal God. I can only show it to you in word form but God is word. Jn1.1
 
And this is why we are begotten by the word of truth to be a kind of first fruits of His creation” in the here and now and not a second coming. And this what the world cannot see or know. As it can neither see or know Him, they cannot see or know Him in us. 1st John 3.1 
 
So it is here “in Christ” that the Kingdom is. The Kingdom of God is at hand. The kingdom of God is complete and never was in the making for as Christ said “My Kingdom is not of this age. It is in its unchangeable eternal Glory as “the Kingdom prepared from the foundation of the world” the one before time and matter. Not the one being made for a future event called the second coming. That is a carnal fascination that keeps you at odds with the truth as it is in Christ Jesus
 
The gates are opened, the tables are set, a feast is prepared the festivities have commenced. It is here in the embellishments and feastings on the word of God that we partake of all things. “All things are now ready!” There is no need for the sun for the Lamb is its light. For I walk in the light because He is light. The sun is a cheap replica of the true light that shines in the heart of every man.
 
Go into the streets and by-ways and invite as many as you find invite to the wedding. The banquet is now ready. The Groom has the Bride John 3.29 This is the true gospel message. This is the good news. 
 
That which is from the beginning (not the end time) which we have seen, which we have heard and handled concerning the word of life. That we declare to you so that you too can have fellowship and oneness with the Father and His Son and access to the Kingdom of God, Heavenly Jerusalem come down from God. Feast on this, in this, In Christ.
 
That other Jesus people talk about? He has been building his kingdom for 2000+ years? Then He must come rapture/rescue and resurrect? Put away sin? Defeat Satan? Seal vision and prophesy? Anoint the most holy? Wew! Poor guy. If this is true, what good was the cross?
Too bad that jesus can’t rest form his works like God did from His. Maybe he should hire some contractors. It would be quicker. Maybe He should call down a legion of angels and they would fight for him. Oh ya. He said He wouldn’t do that because His Kingdom is not of this age. And the Holy Spirit teaches that the ruler of this world has been judged so Christ already dealt with Satan. Heb 2.14 + 1st John 3.8 If you can believe His word.
The Kingdom of God is at hand being the city of God. Why do some seek another coming and another city?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Steward Part 3 To Those Who Hear

Download PDF

The disciples asked Jesus Why He spoke to the people in parables and He answered them saying “Because to you it has been given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom, but to them it has not been given”.

 

This here then coincides with “of those born among women there is none greater than John the baptist, but he who is least in the kingdom is greater than he”. That it is those who are looking to time as a dispenser of the things of God to be manifest in physical matter the things of God, they are blinded because it is by revelation that we receive the things of God. Not a date on the calendar.. 

 
Jesus then quotes a truth from Isaiah saying “In them the words of Isaiah are active that “hearing with their ears they shall not hear and seeing with their eyes they will not see because it is the heart of this people that is callous and covered. Because they cannot see with their eyes or hear with their ears the things they need to understand with their heart to turn so that I could heal them”.
 
Herein lies another proof as to why the 2nd coming seeker message is a hoax. It is all visual related to time and matter for because you cannot perceive it with the eyes and ears in your head, you cannot get it. Flat out the words of Christ not mine “lest they should understand with their heart and not the physical eyes and ears for then I will heal them. And as long as you hold to a future physical event to be seen with the carnal senses, your heart is hardened to the Spirit whisking around you as we speak, saying “Whenever one hears the gospel of the Kingdom and they try to perceive it with their carnal senses (translate into time and matter) the wicked one comes along and snatches away what is sown in the heart”. For he tells you the kingdom is later and you disbelieve the gospel of the Kingdom.
But it is the least of the little ones in the kingdom that are greater than any forward speaking prophet with another word of Jesus saying “for assuredly I say to you that many prophets and good men desire to see what we see and hear what we hear and cannot hear it and it is the 2nd coming seeker that can only give you the deer in the headlight look when you tell them the Kingdom of God is right now, for they cannot see it with their calloused hearts and turn for then they would be healed and see it now. For this is what repentance is. Open your heart for only those who are circumcised of heart is a true believer. (Romans 2.29) and a receiver of the Kingdom.
 
You say “Oh but that sounds too simple. For surely you cannot believe that”. “Oh I fear lest Satan has turned you away from the simplicity that is in Jesus Christ”. In you this saying is filled to the full.
 
This is not a foreign concept to Paul for He prayed for his followers saying “that the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ would give to you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. That the eyes of your understanding may be opened to realize the extent of your heavenly calling (follow me that where I am you may be also) what are the riches of the Glory (father I have given them the Glory that you have given Me) which we are the heirs of as saints in the light. This should not be strange or future. It is now. Open your hearts
 
So then for us who perceive with the heart it brings forth fruit, it becomes the new reality bearing fruit some a hundredfold some sixty some thirty all eternal. 
 
Behold the Kingdom of God! Repent and believe the good news.

Scriptural Stewardship Part 2 A Prophets Reward

Download PDF

We have discussed how a steward is a minister to administer, a distributor to distribute or a dispenser to dispense. That the words steward and dispensation come from the same Greek word in the New Testament. A minister and a steward of scripture distributes the things of God according to what they have received and attained. They can only take you as far as they have been in the faith. And someone who is looking for a second coming Jesus and a second coming Kingdom is not qualified to represent the Kingdom of God at hand.

 

Time is not a steward and distributor of the Kingdom of God and things of God. The gospel is. And a true minister of the gospel reveals to you what is just beyond the veil of human perception made visible, or knowable only by revelation. Even as Paul said “The gospel that I preach to you did not come by man nor is it taught by man but by revelation of Jesus Christ. Not a 2nd coming revealing.

It is also said in John 2.24+ that Jesus did not commit Himself to man because He knows what is in man. And He had no need for man to testify of Him. So question the sourse. Also it says (John 3.27) “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from above”. So then only those who are born from above can see the Kingdom (John3.3) and it is only those who can say (John 3,11) Most assuredly I say to you we speak what we know and we testify what we have seen”. These are they that are “the least in the Kingdom of Heaven that are greater than John the Baptist” So now we speak.

 

You see the second coming message is simply a mans convolution of the truth quite frankly because they admitently have never been to the Kingdom they are looking for or they would not be looking without for something that is within (Luke 17.22) They are blind leading the blind. A sorrowful sadness with an empty expectation of a future hope when the thing they are looking for is in the mouth of their sack. TODAY! If you can hear His voice. They hear something else.  (Read 1st post on stewards to understand this)

 

In Matthew 10 the Lord sends His disciples out to preach saying “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand”. Having empowered them and given them instruction He then tells them (Verse 40+) He who receives you receives me. He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet receives a prophets reward. He who receives a righteous man receives a righteous mans reward”.

 

But I have come to you in the name of the Lord with a greater reward for he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than a prophet or a good man. For even the lowest stature person who is in the Kingdom of God of which you seek, is greater than a prophet or good man saying “of those born among women there is none greater than John the baptist, however He who is least in the kingdom is greater than he”. Why? Because even an once of eternity is more important and out weights all time and matter because that is what is being removed. (Hebrews 12.28)

 

It is the old style prophet who speaks forward of a coming thing that is not yet, but I speak to you what I have seen and testify to you what I hear about the true Kingdom of God. Not speaking forward about a second coming Kingdom that is not yet,  but speaking as one who is from there. For I receive the testimony God has given in His Son and I follow Him where He is that I may be there also, and I do this “that the world may believe” at His command.

 

If you receive these words you receive more than any prophet or good person. Why? Because those who are in the Kingdom “In Christ” have reassembled the testimony of Christ within themselves having received His fullness, growing up into Him who is the head, who is far above all powers and principalities and powers. We are able to come back and lay out the bread crumbs that Christ left for us so that where He is we may be also. So say I. Lets go up from here.

As we also showed you in the account given of Joseph and His steward to “follow me so that where I am you may be also. That we may be one in the Father and fill to be full in you the words of Jesus that He prayed for you to the Father in John 17 the word “Father I pray not just for these but also those who will believe in Me through their word, that they may be one with us”. This is the Kingdom of heaven.

 

So the message remains “Go preaching the kingdom of God is at hand!!” (Mt 10.6+) This is the message preached to you from the beginning that the 2nd coming seekers distort and confuse. For that which was from the beginning was never retracted or taken away or the Lords words would not be eternal but seasonal. 1st and 2nd comings? Selah.

 

So as Jesus said so say I because as He is so are we in this world” Meaning not the man Jesus because He is not that anymore but His true self is as He is, so am I. As He is so are we? He is one with the Father and prayed that for us too. Did you receive that word? He also said “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word and My Father will love him. And we will come to him and make our home in him. Do you have that?

 

Jesus said if anyone serves me let him follow me that where i am he may be also. Who also said “I am the way” who also said ” and the way you know? And it is not a 2nd coming.

 

This is the objective of every faithful steward in the things of God. To present every one “In Christ” a perfect citizen. To the full measure and stature of Christ now and not at a second coming but now in Him. Eph 4.13 If you can receive that the Kingdom of God is at hand,then you will get this prize. “That You Father are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one with Us that the world may know.

 

If you seek a second coming Jesus, you cannot have what we speak about for this is what you deny and make him a liar and reject the testimony that the Father gave you of His Son.

The Kingdom is at hand” also correctly interpretated “immediate”. Repent and believe the true gospel. There is simply no room for a 2000 year gap for the one who has faith, for how is it we overcome the world? Is it of another appearance of another Jesus of another saving one of another gospel to finish what the first Jesus couldn’t do? No! That which overcomes the world for us is our faith in Him in the here and now. 1st John 5.5

Today! If you will hear His voice.

The Kingdom of God is at hand.

Amen.

Scriptural Stewardship part 1 Joseph

Download PDF

Stewardship equals distributorship; to manage or look after another mans property. Especially a large house or an estate. One who is given care over provisions to distribute according to owners specifications. A stewardship in scripture is also translated dispensation, and means to dispense, to distribute and administer..

 
Paul said that we are stewards of the mysteries of God. (1st Cor 4.1) A dispenser of invisible to the human eye things of God. Paul says that he is a dispenser of these things through the gospel. He has been entrusted a distributorship, that he not to abuse his distributorship of the gospel. (! Cor 9.17-18)
 
 
Galatians 4.2 says that we are under guardians and tutors/dispensers, same Greek word. It is the ministers of God that distribute the goods of the Father, not time.
 
 
Ephesians 3.2 If you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God given to me to give for you”. Here shows a direct line of conveyance, or distribution from God to us saying verse 7 “of which I became a minister” meaning a distributor. Like a baton pass from the Father to you.
 
 
So here is my question to you. Is it that the gospel message and the kingdom of God that is dispensed and revealed by faith, or time, meaning days, months, seasons and years as the 2nd coming end time dispensationalist ministers preach? That God is bound by time and matter so we must wait? He who said “The Kingdom of God is at hand”? Took it back to return it later?
I mean we just looked at the true distributor of the things of God, the mysteries Paul wrote “before in just a few words” That these things are distributed through the preaching of the gospel.
 
 
It is the gospel that is the conduit being the true words of Christ that are reiterated, or repeated to be dispensed throughout time so that the hearer of the gospel being under tutors and distributors may receive the thing dispensed. This is as scripture says, “when that which is perfect has come, that which is in part is done away with. The tutor taught fulfilling “He who has received you has received Me” has happened. The conduit worked. The gospel was preached, you believed then you received “according to your faith.
 
Jesus spoke of this stewardship or dispensation, meaning distributorship in John 17 saying in verse 15 I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in me through their word”. The words of Christ reiterated. Not to be misconstrued as thinking He needs to come back and repeat Himself.
 
 
This conveyance of the things of God is not as the Greek to English translators say “the dispensation of the fullness of time” as though time is the keeper of the things of God. That God is restrained by the thing that is made? That is just carnal nonsense.
 
 
Christ said “It is “those who will believe in me through their word” that we believe the same word just spoken by Jesus as fact being the participation of  the oneness in the Father and the Son that is the objective and the conclusion of the gospel and ministered or distributed and dispensed, or given to us by the re-utterance of the words of Jesus and received in us by faith.
 
 
He does not to repeat Himself as though He must continue to work for He is seated. The gospel repeats Him, we do. And it is through the gospel that “the Kingdom is at hand” anytime and all the time to be dispensed and absorbed by the renewed mind of faith to those who follow the spirit, “so that where I am they may be also” as Jesus said, for His words are spirit and they are life NOW. And it is from faith to faith for the just shall live by faith. NOT from faith and finished by watching a calendar of events for a second coming, as though time is the steward of eternity.
 
 
Think about how backwards that sounds. Shall the thing that is made tell the One who made it “no, you have to wait, I am not ready”? This is what Paul meant when he said “you observe days , months, seasons and years, I am afraid that I have labored for you in vain”. His stewardship and distributorship of dispensing the mysteries of God had been circumvented by the thinking that something else distributes the things of God. Time. Time is subservient to God, not the other way around.
 
 
Here then is another misunderstanding by the 2nd coming seekers that time is in control of God. Even as with the raising of Lazarus when Jesus said “these things have happened for the Glory (the unbound, unfettered word) of God to appear”. But Mary said “yah Lord I know you will raise him up at the last day” and Jesus said “Mary! I am the resurrection” as if to shatter all time barriers. Meaning, you don’t have to wait. “I AM” the last day, “whoever shall believe and me shall never die believe you this”?
 
 
Joseph and His Steward
 
 
So lets look at this stewardship in the light of Joseph in the old testament. Joseph was left by his brothers for dead in a pit to be raised out, endure prison then put in the place of prominence having control over all the goods of Egypt. Being a type of Christ He had power over “all things” as Jesus said “all things have been delivered to Me by My Father”. This is as Jesus said to His disciples and to us through their word “You shall not follow me now, meaning death and Hades” but you shall follow me after”, meaning to the Father, it was only Joseph who went to the pit symbolizing what Christ did for us.
 
 
And this is what is depicted and dispensed through the gospel account in Joseph of things that are “from the beginning” not a second coming end time thing but through the gospel even for those who read and understood this account in the book we call Genesis before Jesus walked the earth. The gospel is a timeless, eternal message without beginning or end .
 
Now let us look to Joseph who had instructed His steward things concerning His brethren who did not recognize Him, who left Him for dead and later coming to Him for sustenance for there was a famine in the land. The steward was told “Take these men to My home and make ready for today they will dine with Me. This is the first distribution, “Today” at His house in His kingdom. If you can hear this, for “Behold I stand at the door and knock! He who answers will dine with me and I with Him. Rev 3.20
 
 
When they drew near to the house the steward was standing at the door. And that is the position of every good steward of Christ and the purpose of the gospel to bring people into the kingdom through the word. And as it was said of Josephs steward “having made ready”and “all things are now ready” (Mt 22.4 and 25.34) He brings them in. The brothers then go through a whole plethora of reasons and excuses for their imposition and the steward/distributor dispenses goods simply saying “Peace”. This is what the new testament epistles open up with, Peace, and is the will of God toward man.
 
 
The steward having made ready the things of Joseph/Jesus, having separated them from the Egyptians (carnal seekers) and taking them into the house to sup with Joseph/Jesus then said to them and us now “do not be afraid, God has given you treasures in your sacks”. Which is reiterated by Paul saying “if you believe in your heart (sack) and confess with your mouth” you shall have the thing that is said. “Whatever you ask in my name that I will do for the Father to be Glorified.
 
 
Which is what the gospel teaches that you are given everything from the beginning,, and you just don’t know it. It is in the mouth of your sack now but must grow in understanding while dining with Jesus “For in doing so an entrance will be supplied abundantly for you into the Kingdom of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ” And time has nothing to do with this for “in doing so”. “Today, if you will hear His voice”. And in doing what? “grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
 
 
This is the chain and links of the distribution and the dispensation of the things of God through the gospel and not time as if a second coming is the dispenser. Wrong gospel. Even in Joseph the gospel message is preached to be received by faith back then.
 
 
We receive His words in our hearts and as displayed by Josephs brother saying “when we came back to our camp we opened our sacks and each mans money was there in full weight”. That’s right. The price was paid by another and put in their sacks  by the steward or the dispenser of words for Joseph, like Jesus who was committed to the pit. And it was this Joseph who after His brothers had come to Him, that they separated themselves from the Egyptians, meaning the carnal thinking of time and matter, that Joseph revealed Himself to His brothers. And it was the steward who prepared and orchestrated this whole event. Glory to God and thanks to Him who has given us provisions in our sacks and stewards to prepare our meal with Him so that He can reveal, or unveil himself through the gospel, revealing what is just beyond the veil of human perception.
 
 
So having supt with His brothers and revealing Himself, the steward, the distributor, was instructed  to “fill the men’s sacks with as much as they can carry. And put each mans money with as much as they can carry in the mouth of their sack. And this is as Jesus said “I have many things to tell you (and to give you) however you are not able to bear (or carry) them” These men are gifted when they visit, and when they leave to come back they see that they already had what they thought that they needed. And gods word does just that, for He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus. This is the gospel,the word of God reiterated but not just freshly spoken,just reiterating the things that are already there. We look to His word like a mirror and remember; oh ya. That is who I am in Christ.
 
 
Here then in Joseph we can see the purpose of Christ and the purpose of the steward or minister being the distributor and dispenser and preparer of the things of God for the revelation not of Joseph but Jesus Christ. The gospel is the unveiling, not time and matter. 
 
 
The real purpose of the minister of God as a true steward, distributor, dispenser of the things of God through the gospel is nothing short of the revelation of Jesus Christ in His full Glory to the hearer of His Word. This supersedes and over rides the need for another Jesus to come and help us as though the first coming Jesus was insufficient. 
 
 
Why in the world would we want to depart our God given calling and follow father time? “God forbid that I should glory in anything except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ”  To us who believe the gospel once and for all delivered to the saints brings us into the Kingdom not time.
 
The kingdom of God is at hand. The next Jesus does not bring it. The gospel does. Amen!!!

John 14-17 found in Colossians

Download PDF

As we continue to clarify the teachings of Christ from John 14-17 where He says “If I go to prepare a place for you I will come back and receive you to myself” and “If you love me keep my word and Me and the Father will come to you and make our home in you” that He says these things so that when it happens you may believe” because it takes faith. That Him coming to us is not the carnally spectacular event called a 2nd coming. A concept not found in scripture. Be a good Berian and check your scripture. the term “Second coming is not found once in your bible.

 
We can look to Colossians and see that it is written, and scripture cannot be broken that “the Father has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. That He has delivered us from the power of darkness (before a second coming) and translated us into the Kingdom of the Son of His love. (before a second coming) In which we have this redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. (1.12-14)
 
Jesus being “The way” to the Father is seen here as fact because of the blood. This is the provision from the Father for us to partake in the inheritance which is Him. We know the price is paid, but do we believe it enough to partake now? Or do we hope in another Jesus to come in a form recognizable to the human eyes, extending His hand and saying “come up hither”? He extends not His hand but like every work He does He extends His word, because He is word and word is invisible except what is manifest on a page being the scritures and the testimony of Jesus Christ. This is His invisible self that comes to us even now and says “come up hither”.
 
He comes to us in His true invisible, immortal self and calls us to Himself through the gospel, having provided the way through His blood. Another carnal manifestation is simply un-scriptural. So if you receive the word of God, you receive the Son. His coming to us is not to the carnal senses that expects a spectacular visual moment, but he is ever present, always ready to take to Himself anyone and everyone who recieves Him as He truly is. This is being “In Christ”. He is made of a construct that predates all creation therefor He does not become the created or He becomes a lie. For even Jesus himself left no physical description like the pictures and portraits, for “You shall not make for yourself any image of any likeness of anything in heaven or anything on earth to be an object of worship (Exodus 20.4 10 commandments) Any such thing becomes a distraction and a distortion because God in all His aspects is not of this creation of time and matter. Nor is His Kingdom.
 
This is further why God calls us to Himself, to follow Jesus that where He is we may be also, and not a second coming. Any physical coming cannot accomplish the purpose of redemption. To be with God. The gospel does. And this is the good news. The blood gives us that.
 
You see it was the Israelite’s that rejected the invisible God too saying to Samuel. “Do not take this personally Samuel. The people have not rejected you but they have rejected Me from being their King.” And so God gave them Saul.
This too is what second coming seekers do. They reject the Eternal, immortal, invisible God and trade Him for a second coming delusion if possible to deceive the elect. They trade the Glory of the incoruptible invisible God for the image of a man, something visible. (Romans 1.23) In this they condemn themselves and judge themselves unworthy of this gift of God, “the inheritance of the saints in the light” and reject the blood as their provision to the Father. These leave the truth and seek another. A second coming spectacular Jesus they call the second coming.
 
But;
19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world (of time and matter) lies under the sway of the wicked one.

20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

There you have it “the Son of God has come” and “We are In Him who is true” fulfilling John 14-17. “This is the true God and eternal life” Not the next Jesus. What you want at a second coming happened through the blood. Receive this Jesus so that this verse may be true “If anybody loves Me they will keep My word and the Father and I will come to them and make our home with them. 

This is the good news

2nd Coming Knock Knock

Download PDF

Knock knock! Who is there? Hi Dad this is Jesus. Hey those guys you gave me? Well I told them about your mansion with many rooms. Well they asked me if they could come over. I told them I would prepare a place for them, and that I would come back and get them. Well they really have their hopes up, so I was wondering if they could come over? To this the Father said “No! Not in a million years! Jesus then trying to save face with his buddies bargains with His Father saying. Aw come on Dad, that’s a long time. How about just 2000 years, to which the Father says ;Okay!

 
So here you have the birth of two jokes. The knock knock and the second coming.
 
Here is the irony. In the discourse of John chapters 14-17 where the real account of this conversation takes place. There are a couple other things that Jesus said like “Until now you have asked for nothing in My name. Ask anything in My name (as if you were Me) and the Father will do it”.
How are we suppose to believe this promise if Jesus goes to the Father on our behalf saying “Father I desire that those whom You have given Me may be with me where I am. That they may be one, that as You are in Me and I in You, that they may be one in Us, that the world may believe”. And the Father denies that request of the only begotten? How are we suppose to believe that we have anything we ask in His name like He asked us to do, if we have to wait 2000+ years to get it?
Did the Father deny the raising of Lazarus? If my memory serves me correctly I think Jesus did that with a word. Like He does all His works, without a 2000 year time delay.
“For what the Father does the Son does likewise”. He creates with a word. The thing that was not, becomes the thing that is, with a word. This is the substance of faith. Faith is the invisible substance of the reality unseen. And what He speaks through the Son does not come into being of time and matter. No! Not now or at a 2nd coming. This world was finished in 6 days. From day 1 to the last day was spoke in the 6 days. “God finished from all His works, He rested from all His creating, this is the history (start to finish) of the heavens and the earth in the day it was made. And it is where He is, is where we are called to. (Hebrews 4.1)

 
Now then. Jesus said “If I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself so that you will be there also”. And “You have heard Me say that I am going away and I am coming back for you. If you loved Me you would rejoice because I said I am going to the Father. And now I have told you so that when it comes to pass you may believe”.  (John 14.3+28-30)
 
If His coming back to receive us to Himself is a 2nd coming like some suppose, it would need no faith “so that when it comes to pass you may believe”? I mean really, if Jesus comes and raptures your body to the clouds leaving your clothes on the ground don’t you think that should be convincing enough? But He says “so that when it happens you may believe”? Because it too is a work of faith like all the gifts and callings of God.  (F.Y.I. flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom? 1 Corinthians 15.50 so your body doesn’t go, it returns to dust) 

You who have begun in the Spirit, are you now completed by a physical event? This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you. (Galatians 3.3+5.8)
 
Jesus promptly went to the Father and said these words “Father that they may be with me where I am, that they may behold my glory”, thereby fulfilling what He promised to His disciples. It came to be by a word, the tool of His trade. So it is true or He is a liar. And if we don’t believe, it is the same as calling Him a liar because you don’t believe the testimony He gave of His Son. (1st John 5.10)
Jesus being the way to the mansions/abodes /dwellings. Was this for them only? No! For He also said “I do not pray this for these alone, but also for those who believe in Me through their word”. Us! (John 17.20+)  This is Him coming back for you too, if you are able to receive it. Something many think happens during an end time scenario with a tribulation. But His coming is also a work of faith. And it is from faith to faith, all invisible as He is invisible. This is seeing Him as He is being with Him where He is. Any such physical manifestation is a lie because it is visible and not the truth. The way is the invisible word. The place is the invisible word. The word was with God, the word is God. He is the way the truth the light the path the place. This is “that which was from the beginning which we have heard, which we have seen, which we have handled concerning the Word of life. (John 1.1+)
 
There are those who wait for a second coming. But some of us rejoice and believe and receive now. This is following Him that where He is we may be also. As He said to the Jews “Where I go you cannot follow” Of which He said to the disciples “You shall not follow Me now, but you shall follow me after”. Do we follow or wait like for a second coming? Where are you? Sitting? Waiting? Wondering? When is He coming back? 1000? 2000? 3000? and counting. This is an abyss, and a great darkness of the unknown. But God is light and in Him is no darkness. We walk in the light and know where we come from and where we go. “If it were not true I would’ve told you so” John 14.2) 
Oh if you had faith of a mustard seed this mountain would vanish too. Did not Paul plead for us saying “Be ye reconciled”. Be ye one with? Isn’t it the same thing?

Jesus said “ye shall follow me after” Having endured the cross, the stone being rolled away, says to those at the cave. “Go tell the disciples that I have ascended to my God and your God, to My Father and your Father” as if to egg us on. Can you hear Him? “It is after, follow me!” Can you hear the voice that calls us from heaven? Refuse Him not! (Hebrews 12.25)
To be “in Christ” you must receive the word as though it is fact. This is faith. This is the walk of faith the old testament depicted to those who are called out of Egypt to be In Christ our invisible land and not to be idle in waiting but to obtain the promises as though they are of this creation. “To lay hold of why Jesus laid hold of you.
And you are “the called” which is translated church from ekklisia but means “the called out ones” not a building with a steeple but the gathering of the people. The gathering of us to the truth. And Jesus is the way and the truth, and the truth gets us there. Not a future physical Jesus.
 
For you have come to Mt Zion to the city of the living God, the heavenly (invisible) Jerusalem, to the general assembly and the called out who are the first born…. Heb 12.25  And this is true or Jesus is a liar. And it is true but not because you see it. But because He said so. Like He has been saying from the beginning “My Kingdom is not of this age” of 6 day creation of time and matter. No, not now or ever. It predates the 6 day word and is the word that was with God.
 
So then after Jesus had said that He would come back and receive us to Himself He said “now I have told you so that when it comes to pass you may believe. So have you asked in His name as if you were Him? Ask anything in My name to believe and receive that your joy may be full.

Currency and Keys to the Kingdom

Download PDF

The currency of our age is money. If you have enough you can go any where and do anything. Money is power for the things of this age.

But the currency of the eternal, invisible realm is word. Gods word. It is His word that grants us access. As different currencies display the icon of that kingdom, be it a king or a queen. It is the power of that one it carries. It is the assorted words that make up the gospel and re-assembled in us that displays the icon of our currency Jesus Christ. But unlike the artwork of an icon on a dead piece of paper or coin that bears an image to acquire things of that culture, our currency being the word of God has more than just a depiction of a man, but the very handiwork of God Himself being His Son, Jesus Christ. He is the Word of God that the words of the gospel display. And this word is living and powerful for our transformation now.

So we who have faith “In Christ” carry about not a dead document called money with a picture of a dead man on it but God in Word form. This is what all those born of His kingdom have. To the one who has faith in Him, in His Word, they have God in Word form and the true impression or reflection and likeness of the Father is Jesus Christ being the Word of God, and the Word was God. (John 1.1) This is the very nature of God.
We partake of the Word of God being the bread of life. Which is food of the Spirit in the Kingdom of God. It is as we accept the testimony of Gods Son, the words in our inward person by faith and washed by the Holy Spirit that it becomes for us not just an iconic figure of a dead man, but the impression of God Himself. We take on not an impression like a tattoo on our outward man but His very nature and character in our invisible inward parts. We are of His kind. For even the angels in heaven behold the face of the Father in these little ones”. (Mt 18.10)
We don’t have to carry dead money in our pocket for our new culture. We have His Word stored up in our heart. These are the keys to the Kingdom of God “In Christ” for us in the here and now. We have the same measure of faith. We believe therefor we speak”. (2 Corinthians 4.13) It is the word we receive by faith that we speak that grants us access. So when we are instructed to follow those who through faith and patience receive the promises…? (Heb 6.12) This is that.

 

The promises are our currency and are not a dead  document or coin. When you inherit the promise, you receive the thing that is said. And it is said of Gods Son “Who shall descend into the deep to bring Him up? Or who shall ascend to the heavens to bring Him down? But what does His Word say? The word is close to you, even in your heart that you may hear it and do it”. And what is it that we will do not by human endeavor but by our work of faith? We believe and speak, but we do not bring Him back. We go up.
We ascend to the very heights of heaven to God Himself. The keys to His Kingdom are His words displayed in His Son being the bread of life broken down for our consumption, received, believed and re-assembling Himself inside of us through the gospel which repeats the Word already spoken, “for God in former times spoke to the fathers by the law and the prophets has in His final saying spoken to us by His Son” (Heb 1+) The Son is His final answer on everything that pertains to eternal life and god-like-ness. God has spoken. Now waiting for His enemies to become His footstool.

It is now your doubts and fears that you lay at the feet of Jesus that are His enemies that kept you from the Kingdom because He paid your price. For it is by the cross that He has already defeated for you the god of the Adamic age and that He overcame sin and death and gave this to you. Jesus Christ dies no more for these, nor does He squabble or fight over them any more ever again. He defeated them publicly, victoriously triumphing over them. (Col 2.14) And He does not repeat Himself or have to come a 2nd time to become victorious as if He wasn’t powerful enough the first time for “God has spoken”.

It is as we know His word and have faith in the things He has said, that have been passed on to us in what we call the gospel, it is these very words given then mixed with faith that grants you the thing you believe.
If God said it…it is. If Jesus said it…it is. The two are one. “What the Father does the Son likewise does”. So when Jesus said “I go to prepare a place for you..He did saying ” that where I am you may be also”…He did. He Also said “I will come again to receive you to myself”. Who also said “Father I want those whom you have given me to be with Me where I am, that they may behold My Glory, that the Glory you have given me I have given them”…. and it is so.  Who also said “I speak not to just these here today but those also who will believe their word, (the gospel) that they too may be one”.  He said it…and it is. Believe it or not. The choice is yours.

He creates everything with His word and His word creates. He does not speak in jest and He does not repeat Himself as though the thing that He said is not true yet. He healed the sick and raised the dead how? With His word. With a word. He does not speak 2000+ year time release capsules. And He does not need to be said again or performed by a second coming Jesus. And it is not as though you need to see it with human eyes for it to be true “for we look to the things that are unseen. The things that are seen are temporary but the things that are unseen are eternal. Like it or not. His words not mine.

This is why Paul could say that we are seated together with Jesus Christ in the heavens. He believed in His heart and spoke to receive the promise being the keys and currency of the Kingdom of God in Christ to whom belongs eternal Glory amen!

Now then you who were baptized into His death, what was it that you saw when you became dead? You were raised by faith to new life having come up out of the water. What was it you saw then when you were resurrected? So why is it that you started by the spirit that you are to be perfected by something you see? And why is it you are waiting to be resurrected at a second coming when you already went through baptism? Did you not believe? Who told you this. This persuasion cometh not from Him who calls you to His eternal Glory through the Gospel. Believe the gospel. That which is from the beginning. Not that which is coming as though it is not yet.

The Son has spoken. The Gospel re-iterates what has been spoken for each generation to experience the gift of God in Christ Jesus, being God the Father. God does not repeat Himself. The scriptures do and we do. This is what becomes alive. This is our living. Our eternal life now. This is the faith once and for all delivered to the saints (jude..)

God said through His Son “let there be light” for the first creation and it was so, spoke by His Son in these last days, His final say so on the matter who made a bridge for us to the new creation saying (John 17)”Father that those whom you have given me may be with me where I am”. And who are those with Him where He is? “To them He gave power to be His children, even to those who believe in His name who are not born of flesh but of Spirit”.

 

This is His inscription and His likeness. It is at that point our soul is stamped with Him. His name is stamped on our forehead by a renewed mind according to His word. It is here that we carry not a dead iconic impression on a dead piece of paper or coin but the living word in our heart is our currency.
This becomes for us more than any currency or money of unrighteous mammon and even more powerful than a passport holding you spell bound and idle waiting for a 2nd coming promise for another Jesus. Oh no no no. There is nothing dead or in limbo or waiting about the word of God but doubts fears and deceptions. It is these things that are  the enemies of God. Why? Because God already gave you the victory over satan sin and death at the cross. You just don’t believe it yet. You don’t have the thing that has been spoken. You have not received the promise.
It is not you that are the enemy for He is the propitiation for the whole world. But it is your wrong thoughts. This is why the gospel says that “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God, pulling down arguments, strongholds and every high thing that exalts itself against this knowledge of God”. If you are still fighting against satan sin and death you don’t understand the gospel or the power of God. You must battle with the word of God, the sword of the spirit in the upper echelons of your mind.

 

If you believe that the words of God are I.O.U.’s to be activated by a second coming Jesus when he comes to defeat satan sin and death, that is a powerless place to be. You must defeat that mindset now by the word of God in the upper echelons/heavens of your mind. These are the things that keep you out of the kingdom now. Not satan or sin but unbelief and deceptions. It is these that must be put under foot for the word of God to be fulfilled in you, not for Him to come back and do that. He did that.
This is what Jesus meant when He said “The Kingdom of God is at hand” even back then. He also said that “the Kingdom cometh not with (carnal) observation”. But this is what every 2nd coming seeker cult does. “Look here or look there”, but Jesus said “do not follow them” (Luke 17 20+). Apply the words God already spoke by His Son and defeat that crap. Put it underfoot. Lay it at the feet of Jesus where all His enemies are like satan sin and death.
Everything that stands between you and God the Father today is an enemy and an anti-christ, but not satan sin or death. This is why Paul pleaded “be ye reconciled (to the Father)n for He made Him who knew no sin to become our sin for us to become His righteousness in Him”. This is our inscription. This is our currency.
Come thou good and faithful (Full of faith) servant. Enter the joy of the Lord.
