Jesus in John 3 said of himself “We speak what we know and testify what we have seen”. He spoke of himself as being plural which is not surprising for He is the same one who said “let us make man in Our likeness”.

When John wrote he specifically used the Greek word “Ekeinos” which means “they” and “them” when talking about Christ, but the English translators interpretation was that into “he” and “him”, a single person. So what John was trying to convey by choosing the word “ekeinos” is lost. John was speaking of the fullness of the Godhead being a plurality and being present in Jesus. Even as Christ said “it js the Father that does the works on me. Jesus is a plurality and John called Him “They” and “Them” and not He and Him..
Now when we go back to the beginning and on the 6th day when God made man in His likeness, He made Adam whole. Adam had not entered his deep sleep to be halved into male and female yet. It is in the first words about Adam that God “made him male and female  He created “them” a pluarality. And “God blessed “them” as a plurality in unity and said to them “let them be fruitful, let them multiply let them fill the earth”.
 Adam had Eve still inside him called “the rib” when the Lord called Adam”them”. Like John called Christ “them” after the spirit of God descended upon Him like a dove, and remained with Him. They are A plurality in one.
Then the heavenly Father said “this is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased”. Why? Because this is the first time since the Garden of Eden a man was whole and not halved,  not split into male and female. Christ’s counterpart. For the Father to be pleased in the Son, the Son had to be like the Father
 Whole, complete. Christs helper and comforter is the 3rd person of the Godhead called the Holy Spirit . Christ at His baptism received His counterpart in Himself to not be exposed.  They were not naked unlike Adam and His rib called Eve. Christ had nothing to be ashamed about.
John the Baptist confirmed this saying of Christ   “29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. They must increase but I must decrease”.  He spoke of an unsrrn reality some think us yet future and error by doing son. You see John was the witness at the wedding, He was “the friend”. The best man.
Adam in his beginning was a plurality in one as Christ is a plurality in one. “Let us make make man in Our likeness”. So God did, but later He took the rib out and Adam called her Eve. They portrayed the Heavenly, Eternal Bride and Groom. But they were turned in side out for our understanding. The revelation from Adam is about Christ and His Bride. “The volume of the book is written of Me”. This is the spiritual unveiling. Food for those born again. Even when God said “let Us… He was showing Himself to be a plurality.  God is more aptly defined as “They” and “Them” of male and female and not “He” or “Him”. Him and Her come from a split view. This is why the mandate was said from the beginning “24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh”. Why?  To mend that tare.
That from the beginning which We have heard and We have seen We testify to you. Now for what came next.

Adam was half the man of Jesus because his rib was taken from him. His hidden insides were seen when his rib called his bride was exposed. This was the Revelation of Adam, the unveiling and the exposure of what would not otherwise have been seen being the female side of God. This is why the Book of Revelation of Jesus Christ is not so much about catastrophe. It doesnt make Him more visible.  It is about Heavenly Jerusalem, thr Mother of those who are in Christ. She is shrouded as with cstaclisms to occupy the flesh, the carnal man. It is “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants of things which must immediately take place”. The book of Revelation concludes with Heavenly Jerusalem. Why? Because she is the Hidden Side of Christ that cannot be carnally seen. She is cloaked in mystery,  and catastrophe are the distraction . For even ar Mt Sanai it was shrouded with a tempest and a fire so that if even a man or beast should touch they would die. Why? Because flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom,  man cannot get there. That was the smoke screen to deter the flesh. For we do not need boots and compass for our journey to the Kingdom of the Father but spirit and truth. These are the tools of our trade. That which is flesh is flesh and that which is Spirit is spirit. You must be born again. Your new nature inherits the Kingdom of God which is Heavenly Jerusalem the Mother of those born of the spirit. (Galatians 4.26) The only thing that accesses the invisible is a new creation. This is the Israel of God and not some silly Plot of land on planet Earth. (Galatians 6 15+16)

 

Thr Holy Spirit is Heavenly Jerusalem and is The feminine part of the Godhead that is equally God being co- founder and co-creator as seen brooding over the face of the waters during creation, much like She brooded over Jerusalem being inside Christ She said through Him “oh Jerusalem how I would’ve gathered you as a mother hen gathers her chicks but you are not willing”. She says that again today. Are you willing? She was also seen over the Israelites when they marched through the desert. But only when they gathered all the articles of faith and assembled them together did she bring it over the top of them. Much like any mechanical component. You must have all parts for it to be active and  operational.

Stop

The Kingdom of God at hand is the Mysterous carnally unknowable Heavenly Jerusalem. She is our walled and guarded heritage “in Christ”. She is the  full some of pure beauty and grace. These truths are for us the elect to more clearly see our heritage in the elusive one, Christ’s hidden person. Even as 1st Peter rightly defined the women “the hidden person of the heart”.

Christs other half is only exposed in this way. She is fully guarded and protected. Nothing that defiles can enter Her. She is impenetrable, and un-adulterated. She is in all ways an intricate part of the Godhead being “flesh of His flesh and bone of His bone” clothed in the invisible attributes of Christ that we His offspring are told to “put on” and “put off the works of darkness” as taught throughout the New Covenant.

Nothing carnal may enter, but the born-again can see Her and enter Her . (John 3.3-12)

Eve however was exposed. This is why women are to be covered and not halved or exposed. But not a religious covering but for protection. She is the delicate one that Harbors the children. she is not less in value,  the two are equal. She was not unveiled physically. Gods spirit was ushered directly to the Son at the baptism when God said “this is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased” where the halves were rejoined and thereby fulfilling scripture that says “in Him dwells the fullness of the godhead body”
 
It was Mother Eve who was taken out of Adam. And so all who are born out of Eve are born out. But those born of Adams counterpart, being Christ, are born in.
For She is in Him and if we are in Christ we are in Her and with Her. It is us that are born into Christ by a word of Truth and by the holy spirit that know who our parents are. And it was Paul who had said of the Earthen Jerusalem, “cast off the Bond woman and her son”, said in the same book that “Heavenly Jerusalem is the mother of us all” pointing to something unearthly and invisible. A constant reality. The whole carnal race being born from below made from the earth, but Christ’s counterpart being the Holy Spirit and Heavenly Jerusalem, it is Their  offspring that are born from above, born of the spirit hereby distinguishing the difference between the carnal man and the spiritual man. Adam and Eve were replaced with the last Adam Christ, the first man Adam became a human bring, the last Adam Christ became a life giving spirit. We who are born in this way are the first fruits. (1 Corinthians 15.44-)
 
 God told John the baptizer “upon whom you see the Holy Spirit land upon and remain, this is He!” The true Son who replaced Adam. When the Holy Spirit descended “in bodily form” like a carbon copy she fit inside Him perfectly. She descended and “remained upon Him”. The Word of God and the Spirit of God became one. The two halves were fitted. They were united. They were married at Christ’s baptism.
Jesus could not of been the “well pleased” of the Father if He were only half the image by being without His of being a man in half because God made His image “male and made he them” and only when the two are one, do they reflect the nature of God saying the two of them must become one.. This is what qualifies Jesus to be The new man. The Adamic replacement and true God. Not just an image or likeness. “For in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead” in bodily form. Both parts together, “male and female made He them. For us to understand Him, He turned His image inside out in the persons of Adam and Eve. Jesus was right side in.
 
This is why John the baptist was called the “friend of the bridegroom”. He witnessed at the altar as the best man being called the friend of God. And John was able to testify to what he truly witnessed and he said “the Bridegroom has the Bride” “therefor my joy is fulfilled. His mission was accomplished. He saw the Word of God unite with the Breath of God who being united are the parents of the New Covenant of all those who receive the Word, who are born by the Spirit. This is what Christ meant when He said “I will not leave you orphans, I will sent you my helper My helpmate, the other comforter. He was talking about His hidden counterpart, “whom the world cannot know”. His Eve that was not taken from His side but remains “in Him” eternally. This is something Adam and Eve could not do. They were just a parable but now “in Christ we are told plainly about the Father.
 
In all of creation it is not common for a male to birth, nurse and raise offspring in any of the kind begets. The kind begets in scripture repeatedly states “after their own likeness and kind”. And in Noah’s ark it was “male and female” taken into the ark. The protected image. All others were washed away in the flood as abominations as should happen in the renewed mind. 
 
It is God in these two parts, being the origination of the male and female image that unite for reproduction of a species, is “The Father and Mother eternally one. God is one. It was the Adam He split for us to understand Him in the two parts male and female, this pictures the Word and Spirit being “bone of my bone” being the same kind as each other, spirit. We understand Jesus as the last Adam and first new man, but the Holy Spirit as the Bride? Yes! She is just behind the veil of understanding of the carnal mind “whom no man can know”.
 
It is in the creation of time and matter from the first 6 days that the Word of God and the Spirit of God appear to be separate persons.  And scripture says “the Spirit brooded on the face of the waters” showing Her anticipation of the baptism that would show their true oneness.
 
And in truth the baptism of Jesus by John just showed the union that took place when on the 7th day God rested from His works. Rested not in His works of creation but back to where They came. To the beginning is those who said “let Us make man in our image. The Word of God that created and the Spirit of God that co-created returned to the mouth of God from where They came. “His word does not return void”. It is only in time and matter that they are seen separated. This is the split thinking of the split Adamic nature in time and matter.
 
This then exposes the carnal mind that is enmity against God. The mind of unbelief against the Spirit. It cannot see the Bride and Groom united with physical eyes therefor it must not be now but at a 2nd coming. It has a hard time understanding that Christ was born the King of kings because He pre-existed that way. People have multiple formulas of raptures and resurrections  blood moons, Nibiru and catastrophe’s and such before Christ can be crowned King in a city built on earth.
 
A physical man king in a physical city is a fascination of the carnal mind, a fairy tale of fallen fairy’s, doctrines of demons blowing fresh winds with every change in the news, being hardened of heart having not the eyes to see or the ears to hear. These are at odds with God’s eternal un-changeable existence. That which is flesh is flesh, that which is spirit is spirit and it is God who is seeking such to worship Him in Spirit and truth not flesh stuck in time and matter looking to another Jesus to save them.
As Paul had said in that day, you observe days, months, seasons and years, I am afraid for you that I have labored in vain. Or as we would understand in modern English. You have taken the realities of God that are understood only by the Spirit and you have His coming laid out on a timeline defined by raptures and catastophies and resurrections that point to a single event on earth. It is To Him who is eternally as He always was and does not have to become. This is a true and faithful saying.
 
The Kingdom of God is At Hand! The King is in Zion. The invitation still stands, “Come”

The only righteous act

Download PDF

The righteous Act was the right deed done to erase the wrong. What then is right and what is wrong. It is righteousness verses sinfulness.

Romans 5 put it like this, that through the one man (Adam) sin entered creation and death spread to all of humanity. And that just has through one man’s act of sin, sin spread throughout Humanity. So too through one man’s righteous act life spreads to those who received . And who is that it?  Christ. He is the gift of God by  being His right deed accredited to us on our behalf to undo the effects of the fall. In this way we share in His life and are exonerated from the death that was passed on to us by Adam. We have a new heritage.

So Christ’s righteous singular act that He did was to undo the Adamic curse and to free would be believers from death. All those born according to Adam are born dead to the things of God. They cannot see or hear Him who knocks on the door of their invisible  heart. An invisible God requires an invisible response of what we call Faith. These are the things that are intangible to the carnal senses of hearing sight sound in touch.

All those who receive Him are born of a new creation having eyes to see and ears to hear of a different nature. These are God’s people, the true Israel of God as seen in Galatians 6

15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation. 16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, upon the Israel of God.” But it is those who do not have the new nature that them hoes a different understanding of the Israel of God. A carnal one. The thing on earth is not the Israel of God.

Christ is able to save to the uttermost those who come to him. And just as Moses instructed the people to look at the snake on the pole to be saved, we look back to the cross for the same thing. That is the one single saving Act of God that produces true righteousness that is able to save equally those who look forward to the cross and us to look back to that saving savior. ”

There is not going to be another saving savior to supersede or add on to this rightly done, cpmplete and fulfilled act. Even as 2nd Peter says that all the Earth and all its Works shall be burned with fire so that true righteousness remains. True righteousness is now, but then it will be without competition.

 

You see the curse is not something imposed by God on mankind, but that mankind was operating  contrary to their god-given nature of “having dominion over all the earth in cohesion with the living God”. It is that Creation responds negatively to fallen thinking.  They have  backwards, upside down thoughts. This is why the carnal mind is enmity against God. The things mankind was given power over then now had power over them. They were created to live in fellowship and constant non-stop communion with the living God,  but now they serve creation and remain ignorant of Him who said “lo I am with you through all the ages”.

 

God didn’t curse mankind. They violated the natural laws programmed into the creation by the Creator of “everything being good very good” and walking backwards,  much like going the wrong way down a one way street, they experience the curse. This is what it means when the disciples were inquiring about the Tower of Siloam that fell on many people. He said unless you repent this will likewise happened to you, Showing the need for a polarity change from cursing to blessing to escape pending doom.

 

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

Adam turned away from God.  And when he turned, he did not get the next best thing,  he got the exact opposite, and imposed that spiritual posture on humanity. To all those born of his kind having only carnal perceptions.  But the elect of God have both. We have a God consciousness. We are not God, but having every thing that God has by being joint heirs of the gift of God in Christ.

It was Adam who turned from a God consciousness to a self consciousness. He became afraid and detached from God in His thinking and became empty first in His mind. Then he felt naked and guilty for the first time and wanted to hide the empty spot. A great void in the heart that many try to fill today with countless addictions. These are also classified as idolatrous and adulterous toward God.

 

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

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

The law culture that was given was  to amplify mankinds nakedness and sin. It is this nakedness and sin that was nailed to the cross. We apply this with our thinking and behavior through the working of faith.

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

 

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

 

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

This is why we see The lamb of God in heaven is The center piece. There belongs glory to none other. The lighting strike that was looking for us, landed on Him. And Christ did this willingly for you when you are enemies, to have life and life more abundantly. To share in His victory and the pleasures He enjoys today is our bounty and our abundance.  Life more abundantly.

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

Heavenly Jerusalem

Revelation 21.9 “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”[g]10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy[h]Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. 

No confusion here. The Bride of Christ has no carnal components, no earthen elements of brick and mortar. No illumination to compete with the stars but from original, unparalleled  Glory of the Almighty. She descends forth from Heaven having the Glory of God, clothed in the righteousness of the saints who carry out the will of the Father.  Which is? The eternal gospel. These are all invisible to the carnal senses being “the Kingdom prepared from the foundations of the world, the place we are called to. “Follow me, that where I am you may be also”. To follow Him you must be like Him. You must put Him on. You must be found “in Him”.

Just like a diamond is seen best in the contrast of a black cloth, so too the eternal city of God, which is fitting for God, being bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh of yhings unseen,  that has no beginning or end, being uniquely fitting for us who put on our New nature of attributes displayed in the Only Beggoten of the Father. We see Her as contrasts of visible things. And this is the purpose for the contrasts of creation,  that we the elect may see clearly from the things that are made, heavenly things that are not made but exist in there eternal glory of always being new with God outside of human perception, but always within reach.

The Kingdom of God is at hand.

They had opportunity to return

Download PDF
Hebrews 11 speaks of those who if they wanted to could return to their Homeland. But that they sought a new one, a Heavenly one, therefore God is not ashamed to call them his children. For he has a place prepared for them. They knew they were sojourners and pilgrims on earth looking for a heavenly city made up not of the elemental building blocks of time and matter.
 
And this is what the gospel does. It offers us a promise of something new, something  different from the old.
People go through and read the promises of God, but then not having the faith to believe the invitation, God provides a back door. Maybe your belief mechanism, which is your faith in God, is too small to receive the things the things thst God said. We say in our hearts “Hath God really said”? And if we persist in that way of not adopting His Words to receive the provision, the potential to stay where you are, or even go back to where you came, becomes stronger and stronger. But because the faithful do not desire to go back, God gives them, us, something much greater of a heavenly estate.
We then being joint heirs with Christ of the Heavenly pleasures are partakers of the blessedness that Christ enjoys now.
Scripture says that “God has given us every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Christ”. And “God has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness through the knowledge of him who calls us to Glory”. But we just have a hard time believing this, so we wait for the next saving called a second coming to deliver the goods of the things “God hath said”. But it is God who said “let there be light and there was light” who said some other things with the same immediate results, but you just can’t see them with the old human thinking. It is the old human thinking that translates God into physical things, but it is God who translates us into spiritual.  Scripture must be “spiritually discerned”. So you must be born again of the spirit to do so.
 
We see that with Paul speaking to the Thessalonians, he said that “because some did not like to retain the truth of God, that God gave them over to the lie if possible to deceive the elect. He gave them another way to persist in their rejecting Him who is invisible.  He gives them something tangible to appease the carnal senses. But those of us who know, know that “flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom of God”. But the rescripted mind of the spirit does. That if they would have received the truth, then when plan B came along, they would have rejected it. But they took the option.
But that’s not ehat what Abraham did, that’s not what Isaac or Jacob did. They believed and confessed that they were pilgrims and sojourners on Earth as they looked to the Heavenly City. No earthen city would do so they wandered without compromise. What about you?
So there are those today who wander in another way. And when you wander from God you don’t get the next best thing. You get the opposite. God gave the Israelites the law culture to show them their sinfulness. “For them to be taken snares and caught”. “To make sin exceedingly sinful”. It was called “the covenant of death” till Christ came and abolished the law, the prophets  and that culture. He took away the first covenant to establish the New Covenant.
But today many like the Old Covenant  better and  get the expectation of a holy city on earth with a monstrous looking Jerusalem not patterned of David or Solomon’s Jerusalem. But nevertheless  they call it Israel and Jerusalem. And because many reject the “Kingdom of God at hand” they get a rehashed, refabricated, truncated version of the culture of the law,  wanting to mimick all its feasts, sacrifices, language and plot of land on earth and thereby reject the Heavenly calling. They are not pilgrims with a heavenly quest but choose to remain of the earth. “For the time that is coming now is when you will not worship God in Jerusalem but in Spirit and truth for the Father seeks such” (John 4) Such are we who are born again.
It is “all the Earth and all its Works shall be burned for the Eternal to remain. So what manner of person are you to be an all holy conduct”.
 
So it is today as if the gospel message is wore out. Many churchgoers have acquiesced and accepted a lie. Very much like the Jews of old of whom it was said in Revelation that they were the city called Sodom where the Lord was slain, describing their spiritual condition. But as we know the Lord was slain by the Jewish culture that was condemned and put out of business. The Kingdom was torn from them and given to others. Why? Because they were not entering the Kingdom,  nor allowed those who were trying to do so”. And in this way rejected the call. It was the Jews that cried “no he is not our King crucify him”. Why? Because they could not receive him as he is. Not the pauper on a donkey, but the One on the white horse whose attire was dipped in blood, whose name no man can say, Who is called the word of God. We are still saying His name today. He cannot be deduced to the simple spelling of a name.
When the Jews were first given the Oracles of God written by his finger, he told them that these things are supposed to be in your heart. But that’s a transition that didn’t happen for they were more gratified as to have reminders hanging up and sacrifices and continual feast. They told Moses “His Words are too fearful. You talk to God”. And when the people asked for meat, or things to do, the lord gave it to them till it came out their nostrils, he was showing for us in parable form that these people wanted something to do so he gave it to them till it came out their nose and it’s called the law. The details in Leviticus are just this. Let it come out your nose to you get sick. But the law itself was supposed to show something invisible however they would have none of it.
And we are in the same predicament as the Jews of old. The second coming message of another Jesus with another saving and another struggle with Satan sin and death that rejects the saving that I know called the gospel and aligns the Christian denominations today who fail to believe in the saving of the cross as our crossover point, our passover, our passage to safty, our baptism, buried with Christ , raised New in Christ. These take the back door and sit and wait with the wicked servant who said “my Lord delays His coming”. They call it “The Second Coming”. They have the same mind set as the Jews of old and say in their heart “no he is not my savior. No, not this one”. They despise the gift at the cross and insult the spirit if grace and walk away. Where are you going?
They partake of the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah as did the Jews who crucified him. And the Sin of Sodom was? Bring them out so that we can see them and know them. But They are not physically  tangible.  They cannot be carnally known. They are heavenly. They are elementally different. They  call us to adopt Their attributes. To put Them on. To “put on Christ” one attribute at a time, to put on godliness, god-like-ness. To awake to the truths defined in Gods Word. His Word is our New definition of ourselves as “we behold like in a mirror the Glory of the Lord, we transfigure into the self same image as by the Spirit”. This is our full duty, sum role and goal to God and our purpose as sojourners to arrive there and fullfill the scripture that says “Father, that those whom you have given Me may be with Me where I am”. And so we are because the Father never denied “the Only Beggoten”. You have to believe this.
The purpose of the gospel is to bring us to this point. Ephesians 4.13 “till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; (an exactitude a perfect replica, just like Christ. There is no other passage to the heavenlies but by faith in the gospel, the good news)14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ”. This is our destination as sojourners. Any other savior or saving or transfiguration than the cross is just a dillusion to deceive. 

Revelation 3.2020 Behold, I stand at the door (of your heart) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with and the Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me  (immediately) on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne”.

And because everything about God is invisible, to sit with Him we have to understand that even His furniture is invisible.  Just as the fish, birds and mammals live in elements consistent with their nature,  so does God and His Children. We are those “who worship God in Spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such”. Such are we who have made it past the debris of false doctrines and dillusions and carnal representations of invisible things of the old testament culture of the law and the prophets. “When that which is perfect has come, that which is in part is done away with”. This saying is fulfilled in our hearing.

22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says”.

The Kingdom of God is at hand.

Wherever the carcass is there the Eagles shall be gathered

Download PDF
 Christ in his discourse to the disciples about the transition of Ages said to them “wherever the carcass is there the Eagles will be gathered”.
 
The dead carcass is Israel of old having been fulfilled expired condemned and put out of business to Institute the New Covenant. Israel ceased to be in existence and was called Palistine untill 1948. The eagles are those who know the carcass of  Israel of old contains images and likenesses in shadows and contrasts of Gods “Heavenly Kingdom at hand” but is void of the essence. The two are alike only in contrasts. We can know the infinite by the finite. They are opposites and on this we feast. The Israel of today is none of these.
 
So what then is the true Israel?From  Exodus 4.22 the Lord called the Israel His only son. Was it Jacob who’s name was changed to Israel, was he Gods Son? Was it the 12 tribes who took on the name Israel as a people, was that Gods Son? Maybe it was later the land called Israel that is Gods Son, the  chosen of God. The answer is none of those are Gods Son. They just portrayed in parables things of Gods Son, but they were not bone of His bone nor flesh of His flesh.
There is only one of whom the Father said “this is My only begotten Son in whom I am well pleased”. The true Israel of God is made from the same fabric as the Father of spirit and truth and put on flesh momentarily only for a cause. For us the elect to clearly see through contrasts our glorious estate. To understand the inheritance given to us in the Son for us to be found “in Christ”. In this way we are the body of Christ and heirs of the things of God by faith.
Israel and all its components served just this cause. They were contrasts depicting invisible,  concurring realities of invisible things Eternal in the heavens.
And of Romans 9 that “all Israel will be saved being all of those who make up the Son of God of those who are in Christ. That Christ came superseding those visible things and providing for us and the invisible fulfillment that Israel is God’s firstborn meaning not the old Israel but Jesus Christ himself is the Israel of God, the only begotten in whom He is well pleased and no other. And as the tribes of Israel came from Israel, not a place but a person being Jacobs new name and identity, so too we are in Christ the true Israel and Son of God. The image and copy on earth has been fulfilled. Israel’s fullness had come. But “in the fullness of time God sent forth His Son to redeem those of the old system and old covenant.
God has never had an interest in a silly plot of land on planet Earth except to use for explanation purposes only for goodness sakes.
 
So Israel of old has been sown corruptible to be raised Incorruptible in the rescripted mind. Wherever the dead body and carcass is there shall also be the Eagles. We then are the Eagles that eat of those things. Sown corruptible, raised incorruptible in the spirit of our minds and expire the scripture that says “when that which is perfect has come, that which in part will be done away with”. And so we do.
That which was in part took on a written form and is now only written history called the “Old Testament”. The New Covenant gives no power for those stuck in the old patterns. Even as it says in the book of Hebrews that the way into the New is not possible while the old is still standing. And “He took away the first to establish the second”. Get it?  He took it away. Why?  Because it became an idolatrous notion, for they thought it was holy  but it was only designed to represent what is Holy.
This was the stumbling stone of the Jews. So by retaining any carnal, physically touchable feature of of God keeps you out of His Kingdom.  Even as Christ said ” where I go you cannot come now, but you shall follow me after”. And “if I do not depart from you, you cannot have The Spirit.
Paul said “we once knew Christ in the flesh, but from now on we know Him that way no more”. Any carnal expectation of seeing Gods things in a physical way is the veil that keeps you out. But “we with unveiled faces beholding as in a mirror the Glory of the Lord are being transfigured into the self same image”. Meaning, are Transfiguration is now.
It is the God of this age with the regurgitation of old expired scriptures, to believe that they need to be re-refilled in our day that is the lie. “While we look on to the things that are unseen for the things that are seen are temporary but the things that are unseen are eternal”. Another city in another Israel on Earth is still a temporary. Any attempt to remake and to re-hash the things that are seen of the culture of the law and the prophets again is to go against the will of God would cause us to reflect upwards.“So even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose Minds the God of this age has blinded”. And they have been blinded because they have been presented another kingdom that’s visible and they refuse to look on to the things that are eternal. And in this way they condemn themselves and remain unchanged behind the veil of ignorance. But we are those of the Transfiguration. Of the changed. Who go on to receive their inheritance. We are the elect.
That which is perfect is perfect in understanding. Even as Paul said the purpose of the Gospel was to bring this to a perfect man, perfect in understanding.
Galatians 6.15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation.

16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.”

Differentiating  from the Israel on Earth.
So the true Israel is not the land, it is not the people of the 12 tribes of Israel,  it is not the modern Jew, but the risen Christ. And we are His body that fills all in all. We are “The Israel of God” as just quotrd from scripture. And ee are the natural fulfillment of the promises that are thr “unseen” as just quoted. The other Israel has stolen the things of God and called them their own. Run from that lie!

 Jerusalem today is  being fitted for a coming Messiah. That Christ is a fairytale. It’s a tale of Fallen fairies meant to deceive. It is anti-christ because it is the pretender. Taking scripture that was meant to define the invisible “kingdom of God at hand” with God telling Moses “see that you make everything according to the pattern I showed you”. You see there was an original the earthly things were patterned after. But someone has stolen the things of God and called them their own.

Today’s Jerusalem is anti-christ. It is anti-christ because it offers an alternate.  A counterfeit.  And it is a counterfeit because it uses old scriptures to re-fullfill the things that were already fulfilled, expired and taken away “in Christ”. “All things are new in Christ” and not in modern day Jerusalem or the false Jews who know this.

Jesus Christ came preaching “the kingdom of God is at hand and all are pressing in to Her”. And He was not talking about Jerusalem on planet Earth. The stewardship of the things of God was taken from the Jews and given to the Gentiles. Why? Because they killed all The prophets who were sent to them, then finally in their last act of defiance they crucified Christ.
The time of the Gentiles came after the time of the Jews was over. And when the time of the Gentiles is fulfilled, it is because the time for salvation of the Gentiles, meaning humanity, is over.
When the times of the Gentiles have been fulfilled, it is because it looks like the times of the Jews that were fulfilled. It is a Time when the Gentiles concept of God matches that of the condemned Jerusalem of old by looking for a king to reign in the Kingdom they build.
The modern Jew and the modern Christian have become very close friends and allies because they believe the same things. But it is not as though todays Jews have elevated to the message of Christ in the scriptures and of the New Covenant. No it is that the modern-day message of Christianity matches that of the Jews of old. They reappropriate scriptures meant for back then and repackage it for today. They have fallen. It is just as fruitless. How many righteous  did the Jews of old produce? “None, no not one” Romans 3.10
How can we say that? Because they asked the same question as did the Satanic Pharisees who were chiding Jesus when they said “when does the kingdom of God appear?” They were showing their mindset and what they were looking for and what they were hoping for was something yet to come, but many have pressed in. When you tell them “the kingdom of God is at hand”,  they argue with you and tell you it’s later. The Jews are re- starting the sacrifices and building the kingdom for God to come back.
Jesus Christ told these vulchers, this brood of vipers and sons of Satan, these Whited sepulchres that “you are not entering the kingdom nor are you allowing those who are trying to do so”. Showing here then that the kingdom of God that could be entered at that point in time and it was not the thing on Earth called Jerusalem. For how could the Christ have said “you are not entering nor allowing those to do so” when they were standing in the Jerusalem on earth they thought was the Kingdom of God then?

Escaping pollution and corruption

Download PDF

From 2 Peter 1. Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust

And 2nd  Peter 2.20
We “have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”.  So how do we apply this?
God said of His creation that it was good, very good. Having looked at humanity and all the damage they could do through hate, selfishness and ignorance like with a big chess board, God knew His creation would outlast them all. Earth would endure through all the wars, bombs,  chemicals and pollution mankind would bring upon it.
Earth operates just as designed. Just as the stars retain their proximities, and waves would push their boundaries. Things would freeze and places would melt, and others burn, but Gods plan is carried out to perfection through all the ages. God is supreme. God is able to reward the just and remove a people in defiance. Look at Egypt and Babylon of old. What about the Inca’s and the Myan’s or Jerusalem of old. Each one was removed by His plan and none withstood Him. God is just.
If God had to come back and redo something, as though He was caught off guard and surprised then He would not be God, and He could not of said of all that He made, that it was very good.
When scripture says that “God sent His Son into the world not to destroy it but to save it”, this is what He meant. Creation was never lost or fallen from the purpose of the Creator. Man was lost in stupid thinking, and from this man needed to be redeemed. God has never lost control, nor will there be some form of intervention in a physical sense or God must have made a mistake. Something would not be “good, very good”.
The intervention of God for all time is the gospel message “once and for all delivered to the Saints” for preaching of the Christ of the cross for”the Kingdom of God at hand”. Even now many who believe are pressing in”.
The purpose of all creation is for God to beget offspring uniquely like Him. Such are we who are born of the Holy Spirit and the Word of truth, the salvation of our souls.
1st Corinthians 15 talks of those born like Adam, and those of Christ who is a life giving spirit. Christ being the first and those who believe “in Him” are the firstfruits for God. It us us who no longer identify with the works of Adam but the gift given at the  finished works of Christ at the cross. The cross is our saving and the focal point for all the works of God in us, and on our behalf, for all the Elect. We look to Him, to be more like Him. Everyone is “in Adam” or “in Christ”, alive or dead to the things of God, blessing or cursing. Even as scripture says that “God is able to preserve the Godly for blessing, and reserve the un-godly for judgment, and this is our choice
Adam associates with the old creation, Christ is the New Creation, our inheritance that we associate with, that need not be created because it is not a place, but a person, Christ.
The only begotten Son of God brings us His identity to put on. In the beginning was the word and the Word was God.  The Word is a perfect representation of the original thought called “The Father”. The Father is only thought, but in Him is everything.  Before He thought anything to be in existence He was in Himself. Everything he created exists within himself.  As Paul had said “for it is in him we live and well and have our being. And the unspoken Word was there with Him. We, the elect were there too. We are the “for knowledge of God”. A spark in the eyes of the Father. A flash of the image of Himself.
So for those of us who believe the Word of God,  the world is saved. God sent not His Son into the world to destroy the world, but to save it? He came and did that. John 3.17
1st John identifies those who are born from Him and those who don’t believe that Christ came in the flesh. Christ means savior and save is what He did. Those who do not believe that the saving took place, are not of God.
1st John 5. We have come to know that God has sent His Son and saved the world.
So the world will mirror back to humanity the condition of their hearts. But we have an exit. Scripture. A wormhole to the Heavenly Father. We have escaped the corruption that is in the world through the knowledge of Christ. In this way we are in the world, but not of this world. We see destruction but like those in the fire from Daniel 2, there was found no hurt on them, or us who believe.
The Kingdom of God is at hand.

While men slept

Download PDF
­ While men slept is a prognosis of the condition of the Christian Church in America today.
Matthew 13.24 “The kin­gdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way.” 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’29 But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”
The field is the world, the seed is the word of God, the bundles are false doctrines but the elect are gathered together to the Father through gospel invitation of “the kingdom of God is at hand”. Each one instantaneously each one in their own order. (1 Corinthians 15.23)
Christ came preaching the kingdom of God is at hand and never retracted that  invitation.
There are however many other messages that bind and put in bondage people together in bundles of false teachings. Like those looking for a messiah to appear in a Kingdom on earth saying “look here and look there”. But Christ said to that bunch “do not go after them”. They are always looking to another saving because they just cannot accept the saving of the cross.
In John’s epistle he said that the Antichrist is coming. And he had written that there were then many antichrists present even then and also saying that they were in the last times. But with each new headline  catastrophe and government change we hear a new  version of End Times. And if the antichrists were present then and were to become more later, we who are later are in the thick of it. The enemy who has sown his seed and went his way.  who conquers and divides,  has provided for us today a plethora of variations and conflicting views  of scripture to keep us separated. This is why it is powerless. We have more denominations  with splintered views and fractures leaving their sheep wending their way aimlessly not knowing that today is the day of salvation “. And that today is the time of their transfiguration and not another.  (2 Corinthians  3.18) today we enter the kingdom of God at hand. It is within our grasp. It is the modern Antichrist that speaks of another saving from another Jesus. It is the competitor.
With each new doctrine presented to the fold,  be at the blood moon or the activity in Jerusalem,  these obstacles keep the fold divided and looking  at what is not good for them to eat. Why? Because it has no spiritual value for Transfiguration.
The counterfeit being the Antichrist with an anti-kingdom and a counterfeit resembling the true kingdom to a tee. Why? Because they use the same scriptures but in a carnal way. They take Heavenly things and manifest them in a carnal way on planet Earth and call them holy.
1 John says of these Antichrist, that they came out from us to manifest something different. Meaning they use the same instrumentations for their trade as we do for ours and that is the word of God. But our trade has trade-in value, the visible for the invisible. They keep the old And if there were many anti Christ’s then, then there are more now. The enemy has planted his seed and gone his way and today the wheat and tares mature together .
While Christ  was here in the flesh He fulfilled and expired the old Covenant and establish the New Covenant founded on better promises as the new norm. Christ lives on now not in the flesh, but in His natural composition as the Father, being flesh of His flesh and bone of His bone of spirit and truth. The only begotten son of God . His flesh is the bread that we eat. And this is? The word of God. By this we are transfigured.
It is the church today that is left the higher ground of the New Covenant in the new Kingdom of God by faith and trust in The Invisible. It has reverted back to the lower ground of needing to see things and hear things to believe they exist. They fulfill in themselves the word that says ” for seeing with their eyes they see not in hearing with their ears they hear not, for one must see and hear with the heart to understand the kingdom of God. And it is from the heart that the enemy steals the seed lest it should take ground in bare-root.  And also  for them it must be precept upon precept line upon line here a little there a little that they may be snared taken back and caught. And so they are .
 They hoot and holler and cheer on the Jerusalem of our day and believe  that the Creator will come back to it to become the created and thereby condemn themselves. But flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom. But the transformed mind does . They have things backwards.
Romans 122 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man”. But “He is the God that calls those things that don’t exist as though they do” because they do for the faithful.
Like the Israel in the day of Paul. He said The elect have received it but the rest were hardened. So too in our day.
Therefore while men slept to the greater concepts of the invisible immortal ubiquitous eternal God, the enemy has come and sown his seed and twisted Gods word to become a carnal reality.
It is Satan who said that “I will Ascend on high sit among the congregation in the rings of the North. I will become like God”. And so he does. He has breathed another life of a different spirit in a dead old document called the old Covenant and brought it back to life in our modern day with the new Jerusalem of our day that does not resemble Solomon’s Jerusalem let alone the one built from the foundations of the world. The Jerusalem for the law. It was the Kingdom of the covenant of death as evidenced by the continual sacrifices of dead animals that they in their unbelief in the cross as being sufficient. They insist on starting up the Mosaic sacrifices again and will perish for doing so. Christ fulfilled those. That earthen kingdom only shadowed with contrasts the Heavenly things that are “in Christ”. The Giver of Life. Not the taker by death.
It is us of the New Covenant who sacrifice ourselves as “a living soul” that partake of the Breath of Life funded To Us by the New Covenant Concepts which are
associated with “the kingdom of God at hand”, made relevant by The Word and the Holy Spirit and paid for by the sacrifice of Christ. There is no other way for salvation for Transfiguration than this. And another way will not be provided for later.
It is in our day that the wheat and tares mature together that the tares rear their ugly head. Why? Because there is none to withstand them. Men slept and are sleeping today to the real gospel of “repent because the Kingdom of God is at hand “. The thing you are looking forward to later is  “the dillusion if possible to deceive the elect”. We know. He is the lo I Am With You Always and the I will never leave you or forsake you.
It is the wise maidens that entered into the bridal chamber, however the foolish were left out. And when the persecution arises they knock on the door but the Lord says to them I know you not where you are from. Like the Jews were condemned for, they sought it not as it were by faith but by fact. They never entered into the new Covenant of Faith needing things all factual. It was the wicked servant who said my Lord delays His coming”. So they wait wickedly.
The Kingdom of God is at hand.

The New Covenant Kingdom Pt 1

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

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

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

And the proof that it is something new and distinguishable different? Christ said “All the law and the prophets were till John. The Kingdom is preached now all are entering”. With these words He drew the proverbial line in the sand between His Kingdom and the kingdom of Israel and Jerusalem on earth. He was the demarcation line between the old Jewish kingdom and the new Covenant Kingdom of God in Christ that “cometh not with observation”. (Luke 17.22) This is the “new wine in new wine skins” different from the old wine of the old covenant and it’s kingdom

The phrase “The Kingdom of God is at hand” started then and was never retracted. A covenant is not in force till the death of the testator”. He came with irreversible results. Christ went to the cross for this cause, not to go again. With His death the heirs receive their inheritance and need not wait for another act to do so.

The New Covenant is emphatically in force. He took away the old covenant. Fulfilling it for the New. (Hebrews 10.9). The old reached its culmination to bring us to the New. Christ is the sole mediator for this New creation and needs no help from the prophets of the old whom He replaced.

Peter said of the prophets “Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, To them it was revealed that, not to themselves,  but to us[b] they were ministering the things”. Here distinguishing the two covenants speaking of something that was coming that they didn’t have. And Christ came for the expiration of their words. They speak of nothing past Christ’s coming in the flesh.

“All (of the old) law and the prophets were till John”? Christ introduces a new constitution for a new constituency of those born with ingredients of the Word and of the Spirit. Written on the heart and not stones like the 10 commandments. “He came to His own and His own did not accept Him, but to as many as receive Him, to them He gave power to become His Children, even to those who believe in His name. And also “of those born among women there is none greater than John the baptist.  But he who is least in the New Covenant Kingdom is greater than he.” Who? John the Baptist or any other prophet for John was the greatest of them.

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

We are not of the circumcision of the flesh but the heart. The differences have no parallels. The old depicts the New only with contrasts. The law of sin and death verses “The Spirit of life that is in Christ”. The operative here is “in Christ” not in Jerusalem. This is “rightly dividing the word of truth”. Snd “The law came by Moses, but grace and truth came by Christ”.

If there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law. The culture of the law only mirrors the truth in contrasts. And opposites. “The law having shadows of these things but not the essence” (Hebrews 10.1)

Scripture says that Christ is the new mediator of a new covenant founded on better promises” than the old. In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away. (Hebrews 8.13). And they did in 70 A.D. by Titus and His armies.

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

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

This expiration of that kingdom was so completely fulfilled, expired and put out of business so much so in fact that all debts were paid and the books were balanced and closed. And because that kingdom and all the Jews so emphatically rejected the New King of a New Kingdom, the New Law and the New Law giver and the New Mediator of The New Covenant, but of them? “there were none righteous, no not one”. So on them was laid all the guilt for all the wrong doing, murders and deaths of all the prophets from Able till then. Why? Because there was not one prophet they listened to. Even as the people said “He is not my king, crucify Him”. And so they did. And so for this they were judged, condemned and annihilated. In this way they rejected the chief cornerstone. They were not recipients of the gift of God but His wrath. The books were settled, the wages of sin were paid. God owes the Jews nothing He hasn’t already given to them. God was patient that none would perish but there was none righteous, no not one”. The Jews and Jerusalem are no more. They are fulfilled. Meaning, expired, shelved and put away saying. “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were not willing! 35 See! Your house is left to you desolate; Meaning condemned, kaput, closed for business, out of commission. Like the cursed fig tree Christ said “let no more fruit grow on you forever”. Showing His intent. Can you receive that?

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

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

 

The Kingdom of God is At Hand, within reach, grasspable, operational and active today. Able to save in this age and every age.  Even Now.

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The unction of the Holy Spirit, The Voice Within

Jeremiah 31.31 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,[a] says the Lord. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

With this we can understand  the contrast of covenants. Things written on the heart, verses things written on tablets of stone called the 10 commandments of the old. The covenant with Moses fulfilled by Christ.  Explaining the difference between external laws that were added till Christ nailed them to the cross saying 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

That old covenant no longer is in effect as Christ said  “Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second. (Hebrews 10.9) And so He did. This the new wine in the new skins that cannot be broken. Enter the New Covenant.

Mankind lost hearing Gods voice at the fall, and so we needed external laws for guidance until we get reconnected. The law was added to make sin exceedingly sinful to see we need a savior. And so we did. This is true reconciliation and the purpose of the gospel.

1 Timothy says “the law is for the lawless”. But we who have recieved the Spirit know something better.

1 John 2 says that “we have an unction from the Holy One and we know all things”. And “we need not anyone to teach us but the anointing we have received teaches us all things“. This is contrary to the law that teaches something else. Because in the New Covenant the teachings are in our heart and not on stone.

We have something from the beginning that precedes and supersedes the law and the prophets. For that matter any law. We have the anointing, the unction, the Holy Spirit. We have the solom witness of God. The still small voice. This is our guide. We who were born not by man or from man, are born by God. By His “engrafted Word” in our invisible parts. Not of the circumcision of the flesh but of the heart.

This is a level and method of doing things right that those of the law cannot do. A righteousness the law and the prophets alluded to.  A right doing that cannot be fully understood in human terms of law.

“What the law could not do God did by sending His own son in the likeness of sinful flesh. He condemned sin in the flesh that the righteous requirement of the law would be fulfilled in us who walk not by law, but by the spirit.  (Romans 8) This is what pleases God and accounted as fulfilling all written law. For us there is no law.

You may ask then what purpose then is the Old Testament law? The Old Testament law the prophets and the priests was like a nutritional embryonic sac taking on shadows of coming things, but not the essence of things in the New Covenant Kingdom. This is what Paul was referring to when he said “when it pleased God who separated me from my mother’s womb to reveal his son in me”. He was speaking of the Jewish culture and city of that day with all its Feast festivities and sacrifices as the embrio he needed to depart from. The Jerusalem then was his mother until he was re-birthed into different nature. A spiritual one. And then he proclaimed “25 for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which is on earth, and is in bondage with her children— 26 but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.” And here I ask you, who is your mother? And from where were you born if you are born from above? (John 3)

So Paul differentiates between the earthen carnal city associated with external laws, visuals and earthen elements, and the the Heavenly Jerusalem from above made up of invisible  components from the invisible God. She is a Mother of us because she is as ubiquitous as our heavenly Father. She is “The Kingdom prepared from the foundations of the world”. And need not be manufactured or relocated. As all things are new in Christ,  there She resides in Her eternal glory. It is there that we enter even now as “The Kingdom of God at hand”. She is within our reach in Spirit and truth. (John 3.3-5 And 4.21)

Paul uses another analogy, or parable where he says that “a slave and a son differ not at all but that the son is under the law until Faith Comes.” There are those of the law who stay in the visials of the law called slaves. These are not the children of God but only those of faith and not by sight. It is not a visible thing at all. But it is”God who gives life to the dead and calls the things that are not as though they are”.  Because they are for the elect.

In the Old Testament law they were binding things on their frontlet’s,  teaching and always talking about and putting up notes to remind them externally. They participated in feasts and sacrifices. These were only until they could receive the inward prompting and fulfill in themselves “When that which is perfect has come, that which is in part shall be done away with”. The perfect were of the spirit, and the “in part” were of time and matter. The carnal physical verse invisible.

So the New Covenant prompter is the internal Witness. That we have an unction from the Holy One and we know all things. That we need not man or externals as promoters but the voice within.

And  the law was added because of sin, to “make sin exceedingly sinful. Because Humanity lost interaction with the invisible God, they knew not God because they were fixed on  physical things and physical God is not. So therefore God gave them law. He gave them an external witness because they could not hear the internal promptings. Our Witness. And this is what the New Covenant does. It restores the internal Witness. As Christ said “the Holy Spirit will teach you all things”. The Holy Spirit will take what is mine and make it manifest. Understandable so you will know. No man or external laws can produce godliness which is our objective as pilgrims.

 

Paul said to Timothy that the law is for the Lawless, for the murders, the adulterers and evil doers. James says it if we observe the Royal law that we love our neighbors as ourselves and we love God that we do well. The Royal is of the first laws given.

If the Israelites would have listened to the 1st Commands given at the beginning , God would not have given them more. “Love God,  love your neighbor as yourself,  and these things shall be in your hearts and minds so you may do them. It is the Royal Law because love is the fulfillment of the requirements of law.  Love is our operational mode because love does no harm.  Love is the bond of perfection.

Romans 13.Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,”[a]“You shall not covet,”[b] and if there is any other commandment, are allsummed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”[c]10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love isthe fulfillment of the law.

So when one follows the promptings of the Holy Spirit they graduate from the external law. The external becomes unnecessary because the external produces condemnation and in this way the accuser is cast down. Sin for us is no longer breaking a law but disobeying the spirit, our internal law. For “whatever is not of faith is sin” (Romans 14.23)  This is the New Covenant rule that supersedes and precedes law.

Love is the chief attribute of God we must put on. The holy spirit is the function and the internal witness of the things that God has written on our hearts for us to have interaction with him and His creation.

In this way creation is redeemed to us because creation serves the Creator and His offspring. His sons and daughters. Us, the elect. This is called true righteousness. And righteousness is a gift given to those who have the internal Witness. It comes along with the Holy Spirit.  We don’t need any external laws. For” by law shall no flesh be justified “. But we who have the spirit are justified. Being a legal term meaning we have been acquitted of all charges the law has levied against us. Remember? They were nailed to the cross. “And by His stripes we were healed”. If you can accept this.

As scripture says “to the pure all things are pure”. To us who have been purified by the truth. We have this. We have the Holy Spirit and know all things, and all things are pure because we can attest to the words of the Father of His creation that “everything is good, very good” for the redeemed and reconciled.

The Kingdom of God is at hand

All Things

Download PDF
All things is a widely used phrase in Scripture. But understanding it in its proper context we too can understand all things. 1st John says we have an unction an anointing from the Holy One and we know all things. Do we know all things?
All things is Central to the theme of the work of Christ. In His final discourse as a man to The Father he said “Father I have come and finish the works You have given me to do. I have given Your words to the people whom You have given me out of the world and they have received them. They now believe that I came forth from You and that I  return to You, and that all things have been given into my hands. These have received Your word”, therefore his mission was complete. All Things are “In Christ”.
So when Christ was speaking to the Father, He was speaking about all things from the father. And if the father is Immortal Eternal and invisible, then so too are all things of God that the Son of God possessed that in turn are given to us the heirs of the things in Christ.
It’s like this. Here is a parable. Many people will go into a store that sells items that represent their favorite sports figure or hero. Seeing articles like t-shirts, hats, shoes or posters of this figure, they then purchase them and take them home. However if while being in the store that idolic person walks in, they should take more interest in the figure than they did the posters the hats and the t-shirts.
And this is what the Jews did and what all the law and the prophets represent. They may not be t-shirts or posters or hats, but they are things that are representative of all the things of God. So if that hero or that sports figure is shows up in person, they would be flocked for autographs and handshakes from those who idolize them. And if that figure were to adopt them they would likely go home with him.
So here is the parable the parallel for us to understand today. Christ came forth from the father to do a work. And he did. He gathered up all the hats and all the t-shirts and all the posters and put them away so as not to confuse the would be worshipers. Those fixed items would hold the worshiper spell down for a moment, but having the real figure there before them to spend time with them, to eat and interact with them, the posters that hats and t-shirts should lose their meaning. And the term idol is spiritual adultery, and is referring to this. Christ is the figure all the idols of the old covenant dimly portrayed of the man we call Christ. Scripture says that the man Christ went into the temple and look at all things. Showing that all things in the temple  were reflections of himself. These verses from scripture put it this way:
1 Co yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are allthings, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, allthings have become new.

Now allthingsare of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,
So we need to place these items that the term “all things” includes, and place them squarely where they belong. Which is? “In Christ” “For in Him dwells the fullness of the of head body,, and we are complete in Him who is the head and ruler of all powers and all principalities.
Here are just a couple more verses of all things to add definition.
The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand.

Echad. God is One. 4/27/17

Download PDF

In the Hebrew language God is Echad. Meaning God is one. Deuteronomy 6. Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! Meaning; God is indissoluble, in-divisible and inseparable in His original composition of Spirit and truth.

For this reason there is another construct then Spirit and truth, and that is time and matter. In this construct God is broken down into individual sound bites, not for a carnal manifestation,  but for our consumption and growth. For our transformation from here to there. He who is eternally one and complete in Himself is immortal and invisible then broken down into the law, the prophets and the Psalms for us to know Him.

God is indivisible and inseparable. He is only broken down in concept for us to realize who God is by degree, one revelation at a time, to the degree we are able to receive, until we learn elemental principles not of the building blocks of Earthen elements, but of the invisible building blocks that makes up God in the spirit. This is God in His natural before time construct of “that which is from the beginning”. The before time. The eternal one.

It is as we consume these assorted truths that we re-assemble the Son of God in ourselves in our inner man  and become Godly. We become godlike in this way. Scripture contains the very DNA of God for us to be re-scripted. In the beginning was God in Word form, and as we consume His word we are modified internally and become “a new creation in Christ”. We are born again and re-created in this way. Old things have passed away, all things become new” in this way and not another. We become immortal, invisible eternal and not time sensitive.

Like Paul said “you observe days months seasons and years. I am afraid that I’ve labored for you in vain”. They laid God out on a time frame called The Feasts. And “I labor again to have Christ formed again in you”. We are not time frame orientated. Those are of the earth. God is not saying “My ways are higher than your ways as the heavens are hihger than the earth”.

So when we receive the Son in Word form, the construct He was before He became flesh, the elements He is made up of before the Father spoke Him, we receive God in His totality “for in Him (The Son) dwells the fullness of the godhead body and we are complete in him” if we partake of His invisible personage we understand in His Word.

 

So it is our journey here in time And matter to understand and realize more clearly what Word means and how to put Word on. How to put Christ on as scripture instructs us to do.  We learn to understand what God is. We assimilate God in this way in the inner man. “For we have this treasure in earthen vessels  (our man) that the Glory and the Excellency may be of God and not ourselves” our man. It is other worldly. And that we are “transformed by the renewing of our mind”.

We put on Gods invisible nature in an invisible way “from faith to faith” no other visuals. For we who have begun in the spirit perfect nothing in a carnal way. He said “My words are spirit and they are life”. We see the “evidence of the things unseen” and we accept Him in the spirit of our minds. We use our invisible tool of faith to implement “the things that have been freely given to us in Christ”. In this way we see “the hidden things in Christ” and in this way we see our new self hidden there too. In this way we fulfill the verse that says “Father that they whom you have given Me may be with Me where I am”. Yes! Seated in the heavenlies in Christ”. With Him, like Him and enjoying the delicacies He enjoys of the pre-created order. We the elect are the true heirs of “all the things” of God. We do not associate with the sit and waits of the second coming.

 

It is us “the called” the eklisia, who have arrived. To us who have been given the keys to the Kingdom, we have unlocked it and entered in. “No one has descended from heaven but he who has ascended to heaven who is the son if man who is in Heaven” (John 3) And if we are in Him, we are in heaven because heaven is hidden “in Christ”. Because all things of God culminate in the spirit, in Christ in one. God is one, God is Echad. He is the full sum, the collection of all His concepts broken down in what is called the law and the prophets, fulfilled and expired in Christ, of invisible building blocks we call truths in the spirit. Truths displayed to our understanding to be reassembled in our inward man to the culmination of all truths to the truth. God. Echad. Did not the Christ pray for us to be one with Him as He is one with the Father? (John 17)

Just as like species communicate in their own language, fish to fish, bird to bird, and man to man. We must put on Word, the Son of God, the manifest mind of God, to communicate with our Heavenly Father. To have a clear relationship with God. This is the purpose of the cross.  His “words are spirit and they are life”. We associate with Him like this and assimilate what we associate. “We testify what we hear and see”. No impurities. “In Him” there is nothing else to talk about but Him. And we who are “in Him” know this truth where there is no darkness or other fabricated impurities. We have nothing left to say, but we say everything at the same time. He is complete in Himself and as We take Him in, we are as complete as His self like looking in a mirror. We see  a reflection of Himself in ourself as His same self and His purpose is completed. Just as our Lord on earth said “Father I have finished the work you have given Me to do. I have given to those You have given Me your Word and they have kept it”. And so we did. This is the finished work. Our transfiguration had its transformation and we are complete in Him. We have this “koinania”. We too are one. We are of the Echad in the Father by clothing our mind in this way.

 

When you were told to put on the breast plate of love, what store did you buy that at? When you were instructed to “Let your feet be shod with the Gospel of peace”, who tied your shoes? When you were told to “taste and see that the Lord is good”, did you pallet that with your tongue or your mind? Do you see what we are talking about? Then you have the eyes to see of a different nature. A spiritual one.

It was said to those of Moses “seeing with their eyes they see not, hearing with their ears they hear not, for God has given them the spirit of stupor to be snared taken and caught. But not so for us. We are of the elect. For those of us “who have eyes to see and ears to hear” of a different nature. A spiritual nature. Being born again not of the building blocks of time and matter, but by His words and His Spirit. Redeemed not with solid silver or gold but the Word of God that endures forever. To be “a kind of firstfruits of His creating” being “born again” “born from above”. (John 3)

To conceptualize God in this way is to conceive in the spirit. To be genetically altered from the preconception of the carnal inception of the death passed on to the Adamic nature being “from dust to dust” to the life of God in Christ” receiving eternal life “from the spirit to the spirit”. For “He who has the Son has life, He who has not the Son has not life”. To our inheritance we arrive. We arise.

 

And this genetic alteration we do In the “inner man”,  in “the spirit of our mind”. We serve the Living God by reassembling these concepts passed on to us through scripture, to realize not so much only who He is but who we are. That is why we look to the scriptures “as beholding our face in the mirror arr being transformed into the same full image as by the spirit”, not being a mirror to reflect our eye color or our skin complex but the complexities of our spirit, and so we do. We put our new nature on, and as it says in scripture to “put on Christ”. This then is our purpose here on planet earth. Our purpose is not to wait for another coming one to transition us. It was “the wicked servant who said my Lord delays His coming”.

 

The New Covenant is already in place whereby God writes these things not on tablets if stone but on our invisible part we call the heart. We ponder these things and they are raised incorruptible in the spirit of our mind. We assimilate God. We associate with God. We are of His kind of Spirit and truth.

It is scripture that contains the very genetic information of God given to us for our “transfiguration”. That word from the Greek is “metamorphos” and as a worm does not comprehend the flight and life of the butterfly, so too the carnal cannot understand the spirit. They are diametrically different. They are in fact opposite.

As we take communion of Word, we receive this genetic information. “We know Him even as we are known”. Like Adam knew Eve. A genetic transfer takes place. We display perfection in the spirit in our understanding and fufill in ourselves “till we all come to perfect understanding, to a full stature of Christ”. An exactitude. We fulfill the verse in ourselves that says “when that which is perfect is come that which is in part is done away with”.

 

The first Epistle of John says “that that which we have heard which we’ve seen which we’ve handled which we’ve touched essentially which we’ve consumed concerning the word of life. That which we declare unto you that which we manifest to you. And why do We do this? So that you too can have fellowship with us. With us who are spirit. To spiritually manifest and Him. Our full sum duty, role and goal is to articulate these things.

It is in this way that the kingdom of God is at hand. Within our grasp.

God is One. We are one with God “in Christ”.

 

The Kingdom is preached and all are entering.

Jesus Christ said “for all the law and the prophets were till John. Now the kingdom is preached and all are pressing in”. And “the violent take it by force.”

God is Not lackadaisical about His love for us, but a relationship with Him requires a whole lot of pressing in and persistence on our part. Hebrews 11 says that”God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him”, and so we do. The psalmist said “to seek the Lord and call on him while he may be found”. That writer knew something about the Living God that many in our day don’t understand.
The word “Salvation” refers to all the work of God in you till you reach His conclusion “from faith to faith” and not visibly. We enter into His New Covenant and receive a The Kingdom of God. And this Covenant is not like the promise of some future time like the Law and the prophets, oh no it is something that is “at hand” that “the violent take by force”. We do not take no for an answer. We have been given the keys to the Kingdom” and it is up to us to take God at His word and enter in. To “Him who calls those things that do not exist as though they do”, because for some of us they do. They exist on a different plane. An eternal one.They become more tangible then the things you see with your physical eyes. Fot those who have ears to hear if a different nature.
1 John 1; That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life— the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us— that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.” This fellowship is the oneness of John 17 fulfilled to those who are able to receive it.
The scriptures are replete with this message that “today is the day of salvation”.  God would like to complete His work in you. Paul defines this saying “13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ”. For us to be nothing short of “a perfect man”. For us to look into His word as a mirror and see our self in Him.  “To the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ”.  Till we too are full like Him. And we can only be full if Christ filled full all the law and the prophets. If your Christ must still “fulfill” something, you cannot be filled full for you do not see Him as He is but as He will be. You do not accept Him as He is. He is “the same yesterday, today and forever” and must not become anything.
It is said that “the evil steward said that his master delays his coming”. To say that Christ has delayed His coming, especially some two thousand plus years, keeps many waiting and in limbo looking for something that already is, being “The Kingdom prepared from the foundations of the world”. They like “the evil steward” believe the master is coming later. 48 But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of”. And that is? Today. He is standing at their door knocking, hoping to sup with them however they look for another. They reject Him as He is. The “Lo I am with you always” they dis-believe. In this way the giver becomes the taker and they are left “poor blind and naked”. 
It is the second coming mindset that makes you spiritually fat and lazy. The slothful, fat and lazy pursue and persist at nothing. They look at all the work of God in a second coming. They wait for the Lord to come save them as though the saving of the Cross is insufficient. And if God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him? What is His response and reward  to those who don’t? If his promises are just promissory notes of things in the future like at a second coming, what are we pressing into? His promises and words to us are not left to be fulfilled later because “all things have been fulfilled” already.  He is a rewarder because he gives us something tangible. But not physically tangible, oh no something much greater. Eternally tangible. He is a rewarder to those who diligently seek him? But they who have their affections on planet Earth as though God will do something here, have departed from the Heavenly calling to follow him where he is that we may be also. For if he left us here rotting for 2000 years waiting for a promise to be fulfilled, then his life death and Resurrection was useless and in vain. If it brought us no closer to the kingdom of heaven then what the Jews presented, His journey here on earth was for nought. But as the writer of Hebrews said “Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away. For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just reward, how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord.” You see He offered something different than the law and the prophets. The law and the prophets expectation culminated with these words from John the baptizer “are you the coming one or do we seek another?” The prophets leave you looking without for that which must be within. (Luke 17. 22) And so john being the greatest and last prophet was beheaded. We must cut off the mindset of a future coming messiah/ savior to fulfill the scriptures.

 

The concept of a future coming messiah/savior to save the world denies the testimony God gave of His Son. John 3.17 “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him would be saved18 “He who believes this is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil”. Yes tearfully speaking, they reject the saving that is in process to those who are growing in this knowledge of God. 

 

If we persist in knowing “end times” or a “second coming” or another Jewish kingdom on earth we pervert the gospel. He is the “Lo the volume of the book is written of Me”. We trade the good news for the bad news. My Lord delays not His coming because His comings and knocking at my door are many. The “Lo I am with you always” needs not to appear again in carnal form. We once knew Christ in the flesh but henceforth know we Him that way no more”.

Persist in this. Press into this. The other ways? Leave you thirsty.

Melchizedek King of The city of Peace. Heavenly Jerusalem

Download PDF

The main verse in the book of Hebrews is 8.1 where he says, “This is the main point of what we are saying. We have this great high priest eternal in the Heavens, not made with hands but by God”.

The writer goes on to differentiate between the priesthood of Melchizedek and the levitical priesthood. That Melchizedek was much greater. And he was in fact so much greater because Melchizedek was not only the most high priest,He was also the King in the Kingdom of peace. And it was the testimony that he lives. That who lives? Christ as King in His Kingdom.

This Melchizedek like our Lord “having no beginning and no end of days” was what some call a theophany. A pre-incarnate portait of the Son of God.

And “being witness that He lives” is “He who is invisible”. The pre incarnate Christ the Eternal Living Word of God manifest. 

You see under the law there was Moses as the mediator of that Covenant and there was Aaron his mouthpiece called the great high Preist.

The Marvelous thing about this Melchizedek, the great high priest is that he was technically not a great high priest as er understand the law of Moses. Because the writer goes on to say that “if he were on Earth he would not be a priest” because the priests on Earth are of the order of the law based on a sin. But Christ came one as the great high priest who went in the Holy place not made with hands but Eternal in the heavens not with the sacrifice of bulls and goats but the sacrifice of himself being a much greater sacrifice than the culmination of what all the law and the prophets had to offer.

Because “the order of Melchizedek” who is more aptly defined as a King from a Kingdom who performed the Priest act once at the end if that age to put away sin and that age. Because being He priest was not something he continued to carry out. This is what Christ did. The putting away sin once at the end of the Ages was in reference to his sacrifice of himself at the cross. That Christ through the eternal spirit purges our conscience from dead works from external laws and of the guilty conscience of condemnation defined by the law.

So Melchizedek is much greater than the priest who worked for the law because in him contained so much more of the image of God than anything the law could ever portray.

If the Jewish law is touted today, with the priests and the feasts as the prefered way, that there are those looking to rebuild that way, to re-establish the sacrifices for sin administered by a man Preist, what need was there to have a great high Preist in the order of Melchizedek? The order of Melchizedek precedes and supersedes the ways the Jews hold on to. “For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law”. (Hebrews 7+8) The Jewish law has been changed.

Hebrews 8.1 So the main point that we are saying is that we have a great High Priest eternal in the heavens in the temple made without hands of man but by God”. That we have the true witness like Melchizedek being more than a priest. He is the King of righteousness from the Kingdom of Peace. Melchizedek was picturing an immortal eternal, invisible reality “of Him who lives”, as evidence of a King and Kingdom in the place finished from the foundations of the world”. 

For what is a King with out a kingdom but a dreamer. Christ was “born King” of a Kingdom “not of this age”. Meaning not of time and matter. As Paul said to those “You observe days months seasons and years. I am afraid that I have labored for you in vain”. Do I need to labor again to have Christ formed in you? I have my doubts about you”. 

Many think Christ needs to become a king on earth according to Jewish law after He jump starts the sacrifices again, which is a blatant disregard of the blood of the cross and “insults the spirit of grace”.

 This is the testimony of Melchizedek that far outweighs the testimony of a priesthood. He is The King of righteousness from the Kingdom of Peace eternal in the Heavenlies. The Kingdom that pre existed the beginning of the world, that post exists the end of the world, made with things other worldly as being the things not made of the hands of men but by God. 

For us we join the people of faith that “confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.14 For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. 15 And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return”. Hebrews 11

For those who reject the Eternal King in the Kingdom of Peace, Christ, who expired the preisthood. This being Heavenly Jerusalem and not of earth”, it is these who are hell bent on making them on earth physically and reject the Father who seeks those who are “spirit and truth”. They”call to mind the country they came out of”. Which is “The spiritual city called Sodom where our Lord was slain”. More accurately called Jerusalem in our day.  (Revelation 11) 

So if you correctly understand the order of Melchizedek,  you would accept these things. What things? The King of righteousness in the Kingdom of Peace. Heavenly Jerusalem come down from God of Heaven.

The Kingdom of God is at Hand,. This is what Melchizedek testified to.

Peace = Shalome = Salem =

Jerusalem = city of Peace

Salomon = Salem and pictured the son of God and King of Peace and portrayed the same thing as Melchizedek. 

In Your Seed. Is Gentiles, or Jews

” In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”  Genesis 22.18.  This promise was spoken to Abraham

“In your seed” was speaking of Christ as seen in Galatians 3.16 Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,”[a] who is Christ”  Seed is singular in context and not plural. Meaning one, not many. It was not speaking of the Jewish people but of Christ. Christ is the deliverer of blessings.
Were the Jews ever singled out as the recipients of the promises of God? No. The chain of inheritance goes like this…
Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, “In you all the nations shall be blessed.”[d] So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.” Paul who authored that paragraph was making the point that the Jews are not the recipients. All who accept the invitation into the Kingdom are.  The Jewish law age ended.  Now the gospel is preached and all are entering “. The recipients and the objective of the gospel is the gentiles as all nations as seen here in Galatians 3 ” And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand (before Jewish Law), saying, “In you all the nations shall be blessed.” Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham”. 
It is the Jews associated with the law, the prophets, the feasts, tge sacrifices and their city who remain in the sin based society that produces condemnation and death who cannot have this. They stand jn opposition to faith. That is why Paul said he wished he was accursed for the sake of His culture because they were rejected. 
Even too with the scripture that says “Those Who bless you shall be blessed and those who curse you shall be cursed” was speaking of the promise to the gentiles because the culture of the law through Moses had not yet been introduced. The promise was speaking
of the Son of God, and those born from Him, “not by the will of men, but of the spirit”. Born from above and not a culture called the Jews on Earth. Scripture is about the Son of God and not the Jew. The volume of the book was written of Him.
So then the Jews are not the recipients of the things of God but The Son is. And those of us who know this are “in Christ”. We who are hidden “in Christ” see the things hidden here and we look at the re-creation of Gods things of the earth and we see the imposter. Someone has stolen the things of God and called them their own. It is not enough that the Jews of old resisted the Holy Spirit while they had the old covenant articles, but today the imposter takes on no real likeness except to capture the innocent and spiritually dead.
You see “There is no longer Jew nor Greek, there is no longer slave nor free, there is no longer male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” All nationalities (gentiles) have equal access to “The Kingdom at hand” in Christ. There is no preference for the old or modern Jew. This is the New Covenant different from the old. “God is no respector of persons”. Jews have no special priveleges or preferential treatment. Because “those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.” These who are born of the spirit.(Romans 9) and “in Christ are all the promises of God are yes and amen” they have their fulfillment in Christ and not Israel on earth. And again from 1 Corinthians 12 13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free”. Christ is our New Creation and not manifest the old covenant way.
The people of god defined as “Israel” were given  to walk out on planet earth over and over visibly mimicks of eternal realities complete in the heavens for our learning.
 Even as God says in Exodus 4:22 that “Israel is my firstborn son”. But was Israel God’s firstborn son? No Christ is “the only begotten of the Father”. Israel was only given as a picture. It was a physical representation of invisible realities to help us understand the things that are Invisible “in Christ “. Even as Paul said in First Corinthians 12 of Israel mirroring the body of Christ. But just as Israel was never really the son of God  but used as a picture, so too it wasn’t the body of Christ but was imagery for us to grow in our understanding.
Christ is our Head and we the believers are His body. We are “living stones” from all nations. He is “The Chief Cornerstone” that we are assembled to. We do not wait for another Israel or another Jesus or some rapture to accomplish this. Our inheritance is “eternal in the Heavens”.
So “in your seed all the nations of the Earth shall be blessed” was not a Jewish thing has shown true because before the “Throne of God are people “of every language tribe and tongue”. None had precedence over the others. There are no Jews between God and man, just Christ.  Not the 2nd coming Christ but “The Lamb of God” as referring to His last great saving act. The cross is the act that wualifies Him. And for that reason He is the only mediator, the only go between and link to God is Christ.  Everyone must enter the Kingdom of Heaven through Christ by Faith to access “The Kingdom of God at hand”. Our equal footing is faith in His Son. As Christ is lifted up in this way He will draw all people to Himself.
Christ is the Israel of God. The Israel of old was to mimick the new. The Israel of today is the impersonator using things fulfilled In Christ “. They resurrect the old  by a different spirit. “Whose coming is according to satan with all lying signs and wonders”. A mimicker, a wannabe and a look alike.
Even as Paul said he wished he was accursed for his Jewish friends who were cut off from God “that they may be saved”. He  went on to say of the Jews in Romans 9 that “ those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.” And once again the seed is singular in the Son and passed on the gentiles, meaning all nations and not just the Jews. God blesses the New who enters by faith too. They become another nation in the collection of the gentiles.  “All nations”
Paul also said “ For in Christ neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation. (Thr New Covenant Israel, Mother of us all Gal 4.26) And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.” (Galatians 6) Showing here the true people of God are the renewed in spirit and not a physical thing at all.
The Israel of God, meaning the people of God are the new creation of God who “Old things have past away,  all things become new”. Past tense, having happened, eternal in the Heavens. Yes all the law, the prophets and all the Old covenant practices, people,  procedures and places have expired and  past away. They were fulfilled.  All the law and the prophets were till Christ. He is “the new and living”. The old way is paved over as useless and unprofitable. Do we them make void the old law? No. We establish it. We stand on it. It is done. It is the firm foundation in Christ we stand on. He is our ewual footing. “Whoever believes “in Him” will not be put to shame, not earthen Israel. “He came to His own but they did not receive Him, but to as many as receive Him? To them He gave power to become His Children. Not born of man but of God.
Paul in Romans has these words to say of the people of God “For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; 29 but he is a (true) Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.
The New Covenant Kingdom does not have a front door for the Jew in the side door for other believers. Everyone who is in Christ has equal access and we are the true Jew of the circumcision of the heart. Christ is the gate and we go in through him in find pasture
The Kingdom of God is at hand.
