*The only righteous act

Download PDF

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

Romans 5 put it like this, that through the one man (Adam) sin entered creation and death spread to all of humanity. And that just has through one man’s act of sin, sin spread throughout Humanity. So too through one man’s righteous act life spreads to those who 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 nature with 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, which is our invisible imbecilic cord to the living God. These are the things that are intangible to the carnal senses of hearing sight sound in touch, but insurmountable more real.

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

15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation. 16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, upon the Israel of God.” But it is those who do not have the new nature that has 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 to see our sin and our old enemy the devil hanging lifelessly there. 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.  It was God who made him who knew no sin, to become sin, for us to be the righteousness of God in him. Therefore be ye reconciled to the father!

 

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

 

You see the curse is not something imposed by God on mankind, but 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.

 

A Greater Than Melchizedek is Here

 A greater than Melchizedek is here.
In previous posts we’ve quoted from scripture that a greater than Solomon, a greater than Jonah, a greater than the temple and a greater than the law and the prophets, has all appeared in the son of God. He fulfilled all the law and the prophets as being the object they all only mimicked in a carnal way. For they spoke of Him
We explain how all the law and the prophets, being these various persons, offices and objects in scripture, be it Moses or Aaron the priesthood or the prophets, the tabernacle, arc and the covenant, these are all physical representations of invisible realities of God in the spirit. And whereas finite man in his limitations cannot multitask in the fashion of the Living God. For this reason the various aspects of God were broken down in concept only for our understanding. The law and the prophets are just a breakdown of the things of God for us to conceptualize God more clearly and for us to understand the immensity of the living God and all His tasks He does simultaneously without ever lagging in any part.
It is now our duty as believers to take these various articles of faith represented in the old covenant called “All the law and the prophets, and seen more clearly in the life of Christ, to reassemble them in the spirit of our mind, which is our place of transfiguration. To be “renewed in the spirit of our mind”. (Romans 12.2)
When the Son came into the world He said that all the law and the prophets were till then, now the kingdom is preached. He was showing for us something significantly different. For all the law and the prophets were an addendum that had been added because of transgression till faith in the Son came. They are then done away with. They were put in place only until the time of reformation. Hebrews 8
You see Christ’s need to fulfill all these things wasn’t that he had to become something that He already wasn’t, or to do something for Himself because He wss not fully developed. He is not in transition, we are.  Christ  is “the same yesterday today and forever” and does not change. These concepts of Him were only carnally displayed in the law culture, then in the man known as  Jesus. This was to open up our understanding to see that, He is all these things and more simultaneously. Even as He said to Mary “I am the resurrection” showing even this is not a place in time, or an event, but an aspects of His person.  All the law and the prophets being fulfilled in Him, because they portray aspects of Him. He didn’t come to keep the law. He is the law. He is “that prophet”. He is The Priest”. But those others? They were dim images that have been replaced. Sown coruptible,  to be raised incorruptible in the spirit, which is our new association.
They are the things that are “made new in Christ” in this way and not a physical way. And since He is eternally the same and cannot change,  the transition is ours. It takes place in the spirit of the mind to become spiritually like Him “for God is Spirit and truth and seeks such”. And such are we. We conceptualize God in this way and we are conceived. We see Him as He is and become like Him. (1st John 3) And if you can see what we are talking about, you have eyes and ears of a different nature.
So our topic today is to conceptualize Christ im the person of Melchizedek. The writer of Hebrews wanted to get into the eternal realities associated with him, but could not  get any further than to try to show them that Christ  takes away the first covenant to establish the second”. That the priesthood and the feasts, sacrifices and offerings, was expired with understanding “The great high priest in the order of Melchizedek” . A preisthood   before the law culture were ever added. Those hearers were “dull of hearing and needing milk” having not the “senses to discern good and evil. The author of Hebrews  wanted to go much further,  but he was unable to because of their spiritual immaturity and dependency on those physical articles noy realizing that they have trade in value. Hence, new for the old. The earmarks of the New Creation, distinguishingly different from the old.
So it is our point here today to show you what they were not able to see, because they were stuck in the covenant delivered through Moses of repetitive cycles and heeding the voices of the prophets of that covenant and were still ignoring their replacement.
So let the Holy Spirit say again in our day that “today is the day of salvation”. Today you hear the voice and harden not your hearts as they did.
The deliverance from the old can be concluded. Even as God delivered the Israelites from their enemies, and parted the Seas for their cross over,  so too  he can hold back and defeat  your enemies while you cross over. For there is no future work of God to do this for you other than the gospel. The gospel is the power og God unto salvation, and not a future event. Christ dealt with sin once and for all, from that time” waiting for His enemies to become His footstool”. And His enemies are? Your refusal to accept the saving of the cross whereby He defeated Satan, sin and death, being the old enemies. So let us go on to perfection if God allows. Let us therefor enter “the Kingdom of God at hand”.
Melchizedek being first “king of peace” and “king of Salem” the city. Salem means peace, and the prefix “Jeru” is how we get the verbage “Jerusalem” meaning city of peace. And from scripture “it is witness that He lives” meaning, the King of peace. That the Kings city being being the place of peace is pre-existing as well. You cannot have a King without a Kingdom, or he would be just a dreamer.
Melchizedek portrayed in picture form only for us to conceive the idea, the eternal truth of “the Kingdom prepared from the foundations of the world”. To whom Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated “king of righteousness,” and then also king of Salem, meaning “king of peace,” without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually.  (Hebrews 7.)
Not only is the King insolvent, so too His city is only broken down in concept for our conception to conceive. This is the original  Jerusalem  that “comes down of God from Heaven” for our perceptions to be enhanced and enlarged to receive this reality as a constant immovable, unchangeable,  eternal reality that can never be physically realized but can be spiritually actualized and implemented in the spirit of our mind, the place kf our individual transfiguration. You see “flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom, but some do. And who might that be? Us the elect.
This is how we conceive invisible, spiritual matter. We conceptualize and  reassemble these concepts of the invisible God through our invisible tool we call faith, of the evidence of things hoped for and the substance of the things unseen. By this we obtain report with God” . (Hebrews 11)
Melchizedek was king of Peace, meaning king of Salem, and also high priest in the Heavenly city called Salem. Showing for us and assembly of things much greater than the priesthood of the law because Melchizedek was an assembly of the priest, the  priesthood, the king and his city that pre-ceeded them.  And had we been able to understand this, then we could have forgone the continual breakdown of the things of God into smaller concepts called the law and the prophets, as things that “were added till faith comes” and not a carnal event. The law and the prophets were instruments given us to bring us to maturity.
As those of whom it is said “when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part is done away with”. This is us in whom the law and the prophets have become faint images of past, expired old covenant images of the things we re-collected and assembled them in their proper estate being “the spirit of our mind” as the things that are fulfilled in Christ”.  It is “all things are made new in Christ”. That we who understand this are “new creations in Christ” by expiring the old breakdown of concepts.
Paul said “When I was a child, I thought like a child and spoke like a child. But when that which is perfect has come, that which was in part is done away with”. This scripture is fulfilled in our hearing. Those breakdowns in concept are assembled and  raised in our understanding.
That a greater than the law and the prophets was the promise and the oath given Abraham and established through Christ as pictured in Melchizedek. And it was the writer of Hebrews who said of Melchizedek  that “we have much to say however you have become dull of hearing”.
And so it is today for those who cannot differentiate between old and new covenants. For the writer of Hebrews could make no other point than that a greater than the prophets was here and today that’s not even accepted. Today they reappropriate scripture as all yet future and reject God as God is. Spirit and truth. Inconceivable.
But Melchizedek is he who witnessed that he lives. And who is it that lives would be an eternal one who has no beginning or end. And an eternal one who is more than just a priest in the fashion of Aaron. Being much greater than the prophet of Aaron being much greater than a king like David. And being much greater than Zion on Earth in Jerusalem remains of Eternal priest after the order of Melchizedek. And this is the order that the son of God was to absorb into himself. A greater than all these things is here because Christ is the culmination of all these things and this is the reason for the dispensation of the fullness of times is these things that were broken down, dispersed in dispensed for our understanding. We are to gather them in the spirit of our mind as the only place we have that is eternal.

So here is the conclusion of the matter from the 12th chapter of the book of Hebrews:22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel. 

25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake[h] not only the earth, but also heaven.”[i] 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.

28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may[j] serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Be consumed by this for this is the consummation of our faith and not physical death.

As ever. The Kingdom of God is at hand.

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 that God said. We say in our hearts “Hath God really said”? And if we persist in that way of not adopting His Words at face value, to receive the provision, the potential to stay where you are in the faith, 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. A trade takes place. Something physical for something invisible. For “He is the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that don’t exist as though they do”. For us the elect this glorious fact is more substantial that all the luminaries in the sky combined. They were made on the forth day. Our glory is pre-existent.
We then being joint heirs with Christ of the Heavenly pleasures, are partakers of the blessedness that Christ enjoys now. The same blessedness He had before He said “let there be light”.
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 invisible reality, so we wait for the next saving called a second coming Jesus, 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 that didn’t need faith.This is how God separates the wheat from the tarts. He gives them a strong delusion. 2 Thes 2.11
But that’s not what Abraham did, that’s not what Isaac or Jacob did. They didn’t take facts over faith. They believed and confessed that they were pilgrims and sojourners on Earth as they looked to the Heavenly City. No earthen city would sufficeth, 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 exact opposite. God gave the Israelites the law culture to show them their sinfulness. “For them it became line upon line, precept upon precept. Why? To be taken snared 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 wine of the Old Covenant  better and  get the expectation of an un-holy city on earth with a monstrous looking Jerusalem not patterned of David or Solomon’s Jerusalem, but the synagogue of Satan of those who are falsely called Jews. Never the less, they stole the old names and call it Israel and Jerusalem in our day. And because many reject the “Kingdom of God at hand” they look for another. They get a rehashed, refabricated, truncated version of the fullfilled and expired 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. We don’t fall for that lie in our day.
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”. We wait for the eternal and despise the counterfeit in our day.
 
So it is today as if the gospel message is wore out. Many churchgoers have acquiesced and accepted that 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 they rejected the call. It was the Jews that cried out “no he is not our King crucify him”. Why? Because they could not receive him as he is. They saw the pauper on a donkey, but He was 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 reduced to the simple spelling of a name without meaning.
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 to eat and things to do, the lord gave it to them. He gave them meat “till it came out their nostril”.  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 till 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,  blatantly rejects the saving 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 wait for “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? Or like “Adam where are you”.
They partake of the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah as did the Jews who crucified Christ. And the Sin of Sodom was? Bring them out so that we can see them and know them. They wanted tangible proof. But the persons of the Godhead are not physically  tangible.  They cannot be carnally known or assimilated. 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 until we look likeHim. We 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”. Like 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. They are of the synagogue of satan. Rev 2.9

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. (2 Peter 3.10+ and Hebrews 12.27+)
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 on earth. Like God could become a pet in a box for their pleasures. Who serves who?
The modern Jew and some modern Christians 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 of the New Covenant and jys Kingdom. No it is that the modern-day message of Christianity matches that of the Jews of old. They like the old wine better. They reappropriate scriptures meant for back then and repackage it for today. God who previously only spoke in parables through the old covenant, now speaks plainly through the New. (Mt 13.34) They have fallen. It is just as fruitless. How many righteous  did the Jews of old produce? “None, no not one” Romans 3.10. But today we want to rebuild that system of salvation?
How can we say that of the modern Jew and many Christians? 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 visible to their carnal senses. But scripture affirms that “many are pressing into the Kingdom”.  When you tell them “the kingdom of God is at hand”,  they argue with you and tell you; no it’s later. The Jews are re- starting the sacrifices and building the temple for Christ 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 that the kingdom of God could be entered back then, 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 of old on earth they thought was the Kingdom of God back 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.

Putting on Christ and our Transfiguration

Download PDF

Luke 16.8 “The sons of this age are more shrewd with their riches than the Sons of light”.

As people of the light we must understand more clearly what our riches are.The sons of this age use paper currency to purchase material things to cloth and please their physical body. With our money we obtain eternal attributes as our new attire.

Our currency is the word of God which bears the image not of a dead man, but of the living God,  supplying goods for our transfiguration. Our currency is word and we cloth ourselves with word “lest we are found naked”. In the beginning was the word,  so that is what we become. Gods Word is of eternal matter.

 Because “we, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transfigured into the same full image from the glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” with the rescripting of scripture. It is in this way we become Godly and in no other.
There is no future act involved to accomplish our transfiguration or to supersede the gift that is given for us to become godly. Christ gave Himself for this cause, and the payment was rendered in full. This is what makes Him our savior and our salvation via the cross. He is our crossover method to the Father, our Destiny. To be found “in Christ”.
This is symbolized at baptism where we are crusified with Christ by the working of faith, to walk in newness of life. And we are held accountable to the act of baptism, as much as we are to marriage or any public declaration. Our baptism has eternal value. So let us pursue our crossover, this transfiguration and put Christ on. How?
Isaiah 55.1“Ho! Everyone who thirsts,Come to the waters;
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat. Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance. 3 Incline your ear, and come to Me.
Hear, and your soul shall live;
 
It is as we apply the word of God by faith and the penmanship of the Holy Spirit, we acquire Gods things to become like Him. This is true godliness. The is our payment for our work of faith. For us the elect, this is a faith that pleases God. And with the scripture we consume, we are newly re-scripted. We have a re-newed understanding in the spirit of our minds. We clean the house of our mind of old things and appetites to become “renewed in the spirit of our mind” and left no room for satan or his minions to return. “Everything is swept up and put in place” to have God our coinhabitant. We too can say “I and the father are one”. Isn’t this what Paul pleaded for? To be reconnected to God? (2 Corinthians 5.16-20
Scripture is not a collection of open ended promises to be fulfilled later, but to be accuated the moment you receive them by faith. Christ is the fulfillment and if we are “in Christ” we are where these delicacies are stored. They are hidden in Christ. And just as a store has inventory to clothe and feed. Christ is our storehouse. His word appropriated by faith is our payment to recieve the goods. Even as Joseph’s servant exclaimed, the price for what they hungered for was “in the mouth of their sacks”. This is the word of faith. “For He is the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that do not exist as though they do”. Because they do for us.
It is in this way we are to cloth ourselves in attire that is just like Christ in Spirit and truth. “We are righteous even as He is righteous”. Why? Because He said so. (1st John 3.7). He calls the things that don’t exist as though they do. Put this on.
We were redeemed at face value, not of our outward condition, but our potential. “All have fallen short if the Glory of God” and receive new life or judgment based on their choices because godliness is everybody’s potential saying “go forth and have dominion. But you must be renewed. For us we arise to our position seated with the Father in the heavens of our minds in understanding of godliness. God-like-ness. Even Paul stated that we are seated in the Heavens for above all power and principalities in Christ”, which is our new identity. 
In the beginning was the word, the word became flesh and dwelled among us, for us the elect to put off the deeds of the flesh and put on the deeds defined by Gods word. In this way even the angels in heaven behold the face of our heavenly father when they see us. Even the fallen angels. They fear and tremble. As Christ said that the ruler of this world has been judged? He is incarcerated in the will of God. If you can receive this by the working of faith, then it can be said of you too, behold I beheld as Satan fell from heaven like lightning.
Satan can only do what he is delegated to do. To “eat dust” being the residue of fallen man. He is held at bay from us the elect as we enjoy the pleasures God enjoys. And God Delights in his creation.  So can we. Christ prayed “Father keep them from evil” and so He does. Put this on.
 
Christ became a man to show us the way to the Father saying ‘I am the way the truth and the light. No one comes to the Father except through Me”. And so we do. We are “the called” the elect of God. We hear His voice in the Heavens of our minds and respond in kind. Our invisible faith receives his invisible reception.”Being His kind of firstfruits of His creation” of the pre-existing non created existence. 
Christ did not become man to stay that way. He returned to the Father when he was done with his human body “and you see Him again way no more”. Even as Paul affirmed saying “we once knew Christ after the flesh henceforth know he him that way no more.” He returned to His original pre-creation pre-spoken Word. And this is what we put on.  Where? In the loins of our mind. How? By faith. We let our minds be dressed in this way. As Paul said “So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God”. It is the flesh that returns to the dust. Our flesh has no transfiguration. 
 
It is as we absorb the words of Christ, we are saturated with God Himself. God finds a reflection of Himself in us that is suitable to Him, being something familiar.  He is comfortable with us and in this way His Words are fulfilled that say.  If you keep my words and my words abide in you, we will come to you and make our home in you.” He who went to make a place for us to be with Him where He is, already did this. He is in His origination with the Father in the before time and He calls us there.
His word in us has made a place in our understanding for Him to be with us in the spirit of our minds. Our minds being a much greater expanse than all the created heavens.  “For the heavens show His handiwork” but the spirit  of the mind contains God. We are filled with all the fullness of God as scripture affirms.
Here are some instructions outlined in the New Covenant for you to understand more fully that we put on Christ one attribute at a time to awake to our God given glory.
.
“Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry”.
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him.
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering;
But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
And for our clothing from Ephesians  6 “11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 
There is not one element given to put on for us to be godly that has to do with anything you can see, touch, or buy at the store. You must go to scripture.
 
 If we can accept this, there is no greater reward then to realize, or better yet, actualize and put in play “the things that have been freely given to us in Christ”. He traded in our death for His life. Our crown of thorns for His crown of Glory. Despise not the gift or insult the gift giver. 
The Son spoke a thing, it was like with the Father. The thing that was said became the thing that was spoken the moment He said it. Like “let there be light, and it was so. 
Instead of waiting for God to do another work, rest in the works that He already did for us. Believe the thjngs said in scripture. Put on these truths, this reality being in Christ.
As we learn to put off the old man and his deeds, and put on Christ in this way, we become the living Epistles of God written on our hearts known and read by all men. Amen
The Kingdom of God is at hand.

The New Covenant Kingdom Pt 1

Download PDF

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” something everyone was looking for. He was the revolutionary creating a new constituency of a new constitution called The New Covenant. The book of Hebrews says “this was first spoken by the Lord and confirmed by those who heard it.” He spoke first something different from the old covenant a new message to a new people. Such are we who are this new constituency being ingredients of The New Covenant founded on better promises than the old covenant. (Hebrews 8.6)

And the proof that it is something new and distinguishable different? Christ said “All the law and the prophets were till John. Now the Kingdom is preached and all are entering”. With these words He drew the proverbial line in the sand between His Heavenly Kingdom and the kingdom of Israel of 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. Just as you do not put old wine in new skins lest it spoil, and you don’t put new wine in old skins lest they burst. So too you cannot mix thr old and new covenants.

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  now emphatically in force. Christ 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. All the prophets were till Christ.

Peter said  “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 (they didn’t get it)  but to us[b] they were ministering the things”. Here distinguishing the two covenants speaking of something that was coming that the old 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. We are greater than them because we stand upon their works. Which is why they are described as being the foundation of the New Covenant Kingdom. Having been laid upon the apostles and the prophets with Christ our cornerstone and us as living stones, and not earthly composition.

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. That old culture depicts the New only with contrasts. The law of sin and death, in contrast with in contrast with “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”. And “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 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 into the earth, showing it unsafe for use of any sort. Left condemned only for demolition, not because it was wore out, but because it didn’t work. That is why scripture says “old things have passed away, all things have become new in Christ.” It’s a done deal. The old way need not be reimplement because it was useless.

The expiration of that kingdom was so completely fulfilled, satisfied, 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 Zechariah and Christ. 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. Just like the parable of the vineyard where the master sent his servants in last he sent his son. The stewardship was taken from them, and given to another. In this way the Jews rejected the chief cornerstone. They were not recipients of the gift of God but His wrath. The books were settled, the wages 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 for that culture. It is eternally fulfilled. Can you receive that? Then you might be able to see the kingdom of God at hand.

The buildings and the streets of that culture were so turned over and so unrecognizable that there were no distinguishing features left but rubble. The people were ravaged, killed and trapped in that city because they rejected The King of kings and Lord of lords. 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 and cut off from provisions. They knew not their time of visitation. “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 with the New Covenant Kingdom And The Kingdom of God is at hand.

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. As Paul said “if I rebuild that which was destroyed I make myself a transgresser”. To be found an enemy of Christ by rejecting His work of expiring that culture.

 

Many today 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. This is why scripture calls Jerusalem on earth “the spiritual city  called Sodom, where our Lord was slain”.

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 Kingdom is preached and many press in. The rest were hardened (Romans 11.7). They like the old wine skins. But the Lord does not put 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.

We then are the constituents of His sayings. Even as Christ said at the sermon on the mount “you have heard it written of old. But I say into to you… something new” We adopt His sayings and live by the spirit of that letter. “We are begotten by the Word of truth to be a kind of firstfruit of His creation”  having inside us His ingredients , being a new creation from a new constitution with new laws, principles and practices

 

The Kingdom of God is At Hand, within reach, grasspable, operational and active today. 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.

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.

The Abomination of desolation and the Son of Perdition

Download PDF

The Abomination of desolation and the Son of Perdition warned about in scripture is the re-collection of all the shadows and images of the things of God displayed in Jerusalem of the lae and the prophets that were expired in Christ. That culture was selected to show the things of God  that were designed to show by contrast the things of the heavenlies but built on planet earth for explanation purposes only. To understand the invisible and eternal with temporary things. The “all things” displayed in the law and prophets and ministered by the priests with sacrifices on feast days were discriptions of invisible things that have been fulfilled in Christ. To be sown physically and raised in the spirit of our minds.

It is the representation of these things  being rebuilt today, denying they were fulfilled by Christ, they seek to recreate and re-present another fulfilling of scripture and they call it another Jerusalem of a second coming to replicate the things the Jews were  condemned for.

This is “the dillusion with all lying signs and wonders if possible to deceive the elect”.  And just as Christ was rejected in that day, so these likewise do. To the Pharisees of that day who were looking for the Kingdom to appear? Christ said “do not go after them”. But many are going that way again in our day.

The expectations in Israel today of a Kingdom of God being built for the Messiah is as blantant of a rejection of the Son of God as the Jews of old and will receive the same demise. Which is?  “Not one stone shall be left upon another”. Why? Because they too have rejected the Chief Cornerstone for an abomination that brings desolation at the coronation of their king. They too reject that “we are the living stones assembled for God in the spirit”.  They reject that scripture and this” now we are fellow citizens, saints and members of the household of God” and need no physical address or recreation on earth for this to be true. Why? Because they, like their predecessors, “seeing with their eyes they see not, and hearing with their ears they hear not. Because it is with the heart you must see and hear to understand the things of God. Even as the Son of God, when he temporarily became a physical man “and dwelled among us” said to the Samaritan lady at the well, “the time that is coming NOW IS when you will not worship the Father In Jerusalem, but in Spirit, this is truth”.  So todays Jerusalem in modern Israel is a lie and not Spirit or Truth and is therefore of Satan’s  Dillusion.

The message of another Christ is a false christ. A mimicker a wannabe, a look alike and a deceiver. Another coming called the 2nd coming, a phrase not found once in scripture.

These reject the saving of the cross in pursuit of something more fanciful. They take all the law and the prophets that were fulfilled in Christ and say “no they are not! The next Jesus/savior/Messiah  does this”. Professing to be wise they become fools and turn the Glory of the eternal, immortal, invisible only wise God into the image and expectation of a man. Romans 1

Even as Paul had said of these deniers “11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness”. God purposely gave them a back door. By diverting the use of scripture to reconcile us to God, rejecting God they re-purpose scripture to un-deify God and make Him a construct of time and matter. As if God could be a subject of and be limited by His creation but “even all the heavens cannot contain God”. He cannot be assigned to a locality in a city on planet earth with a zip code. Why? Because He is the “lol I am with you always, even through all the ages”. It is Him who fills everything everywhere all the time. It is “in Him we live and dwell and have our being”

 

It is on this page and in every article on this website using scripture to present to you the message first from Christ, given to the disciples, read more clearly through the New Covenant writings (in contrast to the old Covenant and Kingdom) that all the law and the prophets were till Christ, the old being fulfilled and expired He provided “a new and living Way”  to the Father. That message is? THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND.

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

Download PDF

” 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.
