STRONGS #2320 NEW MOON? OR MONTH

I find it interesting that Judaism, Messianic’s, Ephramite’s, Nasarene’s and sacred namers for the most part use the lesser light of the night to rule their days, months and years. Doesn’t Islam, Wickans, Pagans, satanist and other cults do this?
Let’s look at this.

In the Strongs concordance from the Hebrew it translates chodesh # 2320 as months with the exception of when it is used for new moon only 8 out of about 250 times, and only in connection to the phrase “new moon”. Other than those 8 times, it is never used in equation with the luminary called the “moon”, just in reference to the measurement of time. New moon could easily be a mis-translation.

Strongs translates Yareach # 3391-4 as moon. These are associated with luminaries and the heavens. There are few times this word for moon is translated “month”. Usually in connection with pagan month names possibly in reference to pagan names brought up from Egypt and in exile in Babylon.

Other than the already mentioned minor exceptions moon/yareach and, month/chodesh are not interchangeable. New moons [2320] should be translated new months because it refers to times, not luminaries, where it is always translated months.

There goes the verses supporting a moon month from the scriptures.

Think about the moon as an anti-type. In size its about the same as the sun to the naked eye, but infinitely smaller. It possesses no light of itself. It is called the lesser light in importance but it determines the days months and years? Mmh! What does the sun do?

The only feast celebrated by night is the Passover. Which pictures coming out of darkness into the light.

My research has led me to Enoch’s calendar or also known as the Essene calendar, which is more stable then the Gregorian calendar.

The point is this. God gave a miraculous clock in the sky and it’s not the moon. To the one who sets us free, why would he bind us to laborious task of following the moon?

More important is the admonition by Paul from Galatians 4.9-11

But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? 10 You observe days and months and seasons and years. 11 I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain.

PRIVATE: 2. HOLY SPIRIT IS FEMALE. GREEK GENDER AUTOU MEANS SELF NOT HE OR HIM

The following information was copied from the link below.  I have found that the translators from Greek to English chose to interpret the Holy Spirit as “He” and “Him”. Not only did they select to make the Spirit male, they chose to capitalize all references that one.

 

The point is this. There is more indications that the Holy Spirit is feminine. God in the beginning chose to reveal Himself in male and female. Gen 1.27 So God created man in His image. In the image of God He created him male and female. The purpose was to reveal Himself through Adam and Eve the parents of the first creation who were contrasts of the Bride and Bridegroom of the new creation, being the Word of God and the Breath, or Spirit of God. Those of the new creation are born of the Word and Spirit, both being equally and fully God. Please read the 1st article on this topic for a fuller understanding before you proceed.

HE
Note: This pronoun is generally part of the translation of a verb. Frequently it translates the article before
nouns, adjectives, numerals, adverbs, prepositional phrases and the participial form of verbs. Apart from
these it translates one of the following:
1. autos ^846^, “he himself and no other,” emphatic, e. g., <Matt. 1:21>, where the RV brings out the
emphasis by the rendering “it is He”; <3:11> (last clause), where the repeated “He” brings out the emphasis;
in some cases it can be marked only by a circumlocution which would not constitute a translation, e. g.,
<8:24>; this use is very frequent, especially in the Gospels, the epistles of John and the Apocalypse; see
also, e. g., <Eph. 2:14; 4:11; 5:23,27>. See SAME, SELF, THIS, VERY.
(from Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words, Copyright (C) 1985, Thomas Nelson Publishers)
Pronouns have many different uses in Greek.  One of the most common pronouns is autos. Its
ordinary use is to “stand in” for a noun to avoid repitition.  “James loved Mary, but Mary
couldn’t stand James” reduces to “James loved Mary, but she couldn’t stand him”.
In English:  (the third person personal pronoun is used like this)
Masculine  Feminine Neuter
Subjective: he   he it
Possessive: his her its
Objective: him her it
The only significant difference between the third person pronouns and the first and second is that
the third person singular pronouns HAVE GENDER.  The GENDER and NUMBER of
pronouns are determined by the GENDER and NUMBER of the antecedent, and their case is
determined by their function in the sentence.
In Greek:
Masc Fem Neut     Translation
Nominative: autos aute auto he she it
Gentive: autou autes autou his her its
Dative: auto aute auto to him to her to it
Accusative: auton auten auto him  her itSession 6-7 Addendum 3
We refer to autos in reference in its function as a personal pronoun.  This is because of its
translation in terms of the Holy Spirit as “he” and not “it”.  The words in John 14:17 in reference
to the Holy Spirit is “auto”, what would appear to be the neuter nominative case of the third
personal pronoun.  So, if He is PERSONAL and not IMPERSONAL. or masculine versus
feminine, why would AUTO be used and not AUTOS???
In this use (as a pronoun), the gender of the Greek pronoun (autos in this case) is determined
NOT BY NATURAL GENDER but BY THE GENDER of the ANTECEDENT.  For
example, if the antecedent if “world”, which is kosmos in Greek,  you would use the masculine
form of the pronoun (autos).  However, you would not translate autos as “he” but as “it”.  We
think of the world not as a “he” but as an “it”.  The translation of the of the pronoun is therefore
based on the natural gender of the Greek noun.
Why is the pronoun for the Holy Spirit “it” and not “he” then?  Because pneuma, the Greek
noun in this sentence, which is translated here as “Spirit”, is the ANTECEDENT of the pronoun
“auto”.  The word pneuma is NEUTER in Greek, and therefore, its pronoun SHOULD be
rendered “auto”, the NEUTER third person pronoun in Greek.  However, the English
translation would be rendered based on the NATURAL GENDER of the word being
reference, in this case the Holy Spirit.
How do we then know that the Holy Spirit is masculine, i.e. and therefore PERSONAL. Rom
8:26 is another place where “auto” is used as the pronoun for the Spirit, and this is still because
the antecedant is a NEUTER noun in the Greek:
Rom 8:26 And in the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know
how to pray as we should, but the Spirit
4151
[Pneúma] Himself
846
[auto]
intercedes for {us} with groanings too deep for words; (NAS)
pneuma = neuter, therefore auto = neuter, i.e. “itself” [KJV]
John 14:17 and Rom 8:26 are confusing only because of our inability to express English
perfectly into Greek. However… every other instance of personal pronoun usage in reference to
the Holy Spirit is MASCULINE, i.e. and therefore personal. ONLY BECA– USE IT WAS THE TRANSLATERS CHOICE!

From the Holy MT Sinai, to The Holy Sandals

FROM THE HOLY MOUNT TO THE HOLY SANDELS

Holy is a funny word. Sometimes we think it means to be pious or self righteous, a state of being perfect or clean or religious. All those things may add definition to what holy means, but the truth is, simply put, holy means other dimensional, not of this planet, unlike what we can comprehend naturally.

Every time the Mosaic priest and those who did the temple services, washed themselves and put on clean turbines and white linens, they were not making themselves holy but making the point that what they were doing was acting out the unseen realities in heaven, if you could see with the eyes in your head, but you have to see with the spirit.
Moses went up to the mountain to the burning bush and was told “take your sandals off, where you are standing is holy ground”. If you think about it that is an oxymoron itself. “Holy ground”. But he was instructed to take off the sandals, later told to make things according to the pattern seen on that “holy ground”.  The Lord was showing him things from His dimension, the holy one, the place of the before time. The one eye cannot see or ear hear, but they are made known by the patterns shown at the mount. The things seen on the holy mount starting with the burning bush were invisible, eternal realities broken down for our understanding. God broken down into smaller concepts for human consumption. So then the eternal image as seen on the mount, was portrayed by them through the feasts, the rituals, the tabernacle and such for, them to understand the invisible.
But with Christ we have a new way, a living way that replaced those images. The image that now portrays the invisible is Christ. No longer take your sandals off, but keep your hands off His sandals. Like John the baptist said “whose sandals I am not worthy to loose”. All the pictures,patterns and parables of the old from the mount and even the city of Jerusalem had now been expired and found not on a mount or in a city but in the person of Jesus Christ. As the Father said “this is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased”. Christ then correctly declares the Father, for “In Him” are all His invisible attributes and “In Him” dwells the fullness of the Godhead. From Hebrews 1.1 God who in times past spoke to the fathers by the prophets and in fragments in the last of these days has spoken by the Son. His Son being found in  a human body was the final revelation from God.
From 2 Corinthians 5.17 We knew Christ in the flesh but from now on we don’t look at Him like that anymore. What the old images could not do in that man did not assimilate into the spirit.
This is the purpose of all revelation is for us to assimilate Him, His Kingdom at hand. That is what the new testament phrase of “put Him on” means. To assimilate, to become Him. As He is so are we, as John said.
Here is the scary part. The teaching in Romans 1 it says the gospel is to the Jew first. It says they knew God in all His invisible attributes, eternal power and  Godhead. This they knew from the patterns. But their hearts were darkened and they changed the Glory of the invisible God into an image of corruptible man. This was their first digression and if you study the passage, it is those whom “the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against those who suppress the truth.
My question then is this. Why in the world is it commonly taught that king Jesus will come onto the human stage and set up a kingdom of this world and rule it as a man? This is the same digression as the Jews who provoked the wrath of God. As Christ said “not one stone shall be left upon another”. You see all power from heaven and earth was already given to Him.
This was the lesson of king Saul. The Israelite’s rejected the invisible God from being their king and wanted a man. And what did God give them? Read 1st Samuel 8. Saul was a curse.
You see time and matter are given to us to learn how to assimilate the ever ready always present “kingdom of God”. God is not waiting for another day for King Jesus to do another work. On the cross He said “it is finished” He is waiting for us to wake up! He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the Kingdom of His Son. He has given to us everything that pertains to life and Godliness through the knowledge of Him who calls us to glory and virtue, that through these precious promises we are now partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust’s. Need I say more? This is all in the scriptures. God made Him who knew no sin to become sin for us so that we could become Him.
I will end with this thought. Adam was created a man from the earth. He had a relationship with God and severed it with un-faith. Christ restored that so that now we can have what Adam lost. A relationship with the Father right now in our vessels made from clay. If God were to wipe out the earth so that you could get on with knowing Him, He would have to create the same earthly environment with all it’s tests and trials for you to grow in a knowledge of Him. As Christ prayed in John 17, Father I pray that you do not take them out of the world but that you keep them from the evil one.
Today is the day!!!

The Bride and Groom and John the Baptist

BRIDE AND GROOM

 


The Bridegroom Has the Bride

John the baptist’s disciples were asking him about Christ and he made the most peculiar statement.
Jn2.29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled.
John was describing to his disciples God’s purpose and mission for him in this life, to baptize Christ. As our Heavenly Father told John “upon whom you see the Spirit descending on and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit”. So ‘”the friend rejoices because he hears the Bridegrooms voice. John’s purpose is accomplished.
John calls Christ the Bridegroom , and the Holy spirit the bride, “He who has the Bride”.. John witnessed the union as he baptized Christ, “therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled”. Mission accomplished.
Bridegroom is a word for a newly married man, or he would be called a “fiance”. Hence He has the Bride”.(past tense) The union is actuated.
The mystery of this baptism/union is this, In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth by His word. God spoke and the word came out of His mouth. The spirit also came out and “brooded over the face of the waters”. As with us when we speak, it is word and breath. So in the beginning the word and breath of God, being His very image, split. And He chose to give us an understanding of this split in two parts, male and female. Gen 1.27. “in the image of God he created him male and female”. Christ is the male image, the Holy Spirit is the female. It is the union of male and female that is called a Marriage.
So in the beginning of creation the Adam/atom was split, and. As for the new creation being the union of Christ and the Spirit. And with us when this union of the word and spirit takes place in us we too are of this union, being a new creation, defined as being “born from above” taking on the attributes of our parents which are the very Word and Spirit of God. We become Christ like and we become like the Bride.
I John says
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— 2 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— 3 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. 4 And these things we write to you that your[a] joy may be full.

A Reminder of Kingdom Realities

A REMINDER OF KINGDOM REALITIES NOW

I know you know these things but it’s good to keep it fresh.

Col 1.13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the Kingdom of His Son.
2 Pet 1.3 His divine power has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness.

2 Pet 1.4 We are partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption of the world.

These are all past tense.

Since we have these things our spirit is already where our body wants to go, but our body will never go there.

He has (already) qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance. We don’t need another day.

We are a digit, A singularity, a human, defined as a person in place and time. This is our old nature. It was Christ who became a man for us to become like Him. We knew Him once as a man, a digit, a singularity, but henceforth know we Him like that no more. He is no longer a singularity and if anyone is “in Christ” they are no longer constricted to their old humanity, but are a “new creation” in His image, being ubiquitous. Not being restricted to this creation of time and space. God is spirit and He seeks those to worship Him in spirit and truth.

So being “in Christ”, “in the Spirit”, we have been quickened, we have been translated, we have been Raptured, we are where flesh and blood cannot go. This is why we “know no man, who is a believer, after the flesh” being a digit, a human. “For we have this treasure in earthen vessels for the excellence and the Glory is of God and not our digit. And since we are “in Christ”, “in the Spirit”, we too are partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light right now. Col 1.12

Our carnal desire is to be with Christ in our bodies but this can never be. Flesh and blood does not and cannot inherit the Kingdom and this body does not go there. It is not for the physical eye or the physical ear.

If we were Raptured, or taken away from this world in our current condition, we would freeze in our current condition. “Let him who is unjust be unjust still he who is filthy let him be filthy still, he who is righteous let him be righteous still, he who is holy let him be holy still” Rev 22.11. God would have to re-create the same current earthly conditions to finish His work in us. That is why we are here.

This is why eschatology and end times fascinations can be dangerous by being an escape from the greater work God wants to do in us now. Eschatology focuses on and speaks of another day and derails the work of the Holy Spirit now. Today! If you hear His voice. For there remains a rest for the people of God.

If anything is unfruitful, it is a teaching to the body of Christ that morphs with every new fear, to keep people spiritually paralyzed and focused on that and not real growth. Who does that sound like? I mean Nibiru? Blood moons? What will they think of next? These are carnal fascinations with no eternal fruit.

So why do we need a rapture? To be saved? To be delivered from this evil world? To be quickened? To be translated? This has already happened if you are “in Christ”. And if you are already in His will, why would you want to go somewhere else?

What shall separate us from the love of God “in Christ” Jesus? Height? Depth? Government powers? Demonic principalities? A sword? A famine? Martial law? Through all these we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

As in Daniel there were 3 men threatened with fire, and their reply? God is able to deliver us from the fire, but even if He doesn’t I will not worship your image. It was in the fire where the forth man was seen. We know who He was. Fear not these end time images they present for they will expire and they will present another. We are where we need to be. In Him.

Ezekiel’s Temple

EZEKIELS TEMPLE

Ezekiel 40
2 In the visions of God He took me into the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain; on it toward the south was something like the structure of a city.3 He took me there, and behold, there was a man whose appearance was like the appearance of bronze. He had a line of flax and a measuring rod in his hand, and he stood in the gateway.

4 And the man said to me, “Son of man, look with your eyes and hear with your ears, and fix your mind on everything I show you; for you were brought here so that I might show them to you. Declare to the house of Israel everything you see.”

Here we have Christ showing Ezekiel the heavenly city, things in the spirit, current realities for them and us. As Christ had spoke of “the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundations of the world”.

The Lord then tells Ezekiel to explain to the house of Israel to be ashamed because of this vision.

Ezekiel 43.10
“Son of man, describe the temple to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and let them measure the pattern. 11 And if they are ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them the design of the temple and its arrangement, its exits and its entrances, its entire design and all its ordinances, all its forms and all its laws. Write it down in their sight, so that they may keep its whole design and all its ordinances, and perform them.

That they may be ashamed? I mean we are talking of the blue print for the 3rd temple aren’t we? Didn’t God give that to us so we can make it? So He can come back and be our King?

Paul said in Acts 17. 24 “God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. 25 Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything,

I believe the earthly temple and articles were meant to teach us the greater reality of His unchanging eternal kingdom.

When Christ said “the Kingdom of God is at hand” meaning “right here” the Jewish leaders thought they were running the show. Christ did not deny His kingship but just said His kingdom is not of this age, and offered it to them if they would repent, or “be ashamed”

Christ also took Moses up a “high mountain” and showed him this kingdom. The Lord told him when making these things on earth to “Make all things according to the pattern I showed you on the mount”.

So this is the sin for them to be ashamed. They worshiped the articles and not what they represented. As in Christ’s day when He said “destroy this temple and I will rebuild it in three days” they thought He meant their brick buildings.

With Moses they gallivanted thru the desert carrying the ark of the covenant having the mercy seat with the two tablets in it, yet they did not see the one who sat on it. Although this chair appeared empty, it wasn’t. The ark contained the tablets which were the Words of God Himself, the living word, His words which created all things. Oh the irony. The chair was empty yet the box contained the Living word where all things came. The ark seated empty was full of eternity. And today, some are looking for that wooden box? Some are looking for a red heifer? Some have a fixed gaze upon modern Israel? Anticipating a temple? What then sacrifices?

Tell my people their sin that they may be ashamed. Could our leaders be doing today what they did back then?

Christ goes on to say to Ezekiel 43 12 This is the law of the temple: The whole area surrounding the mountaintop is most holy. Behold, this is the law (immutable truth) of the temple.

We understand through Moses that there is the holies and the “most Holy” or “Holy of Holies. That the Levites, after they kept themselves from strong drink and dressed in fine linen, were able to enter the holies, but the Holy of holies had even higher standards indicating that even after they sanctified themselves and cleaned their flesh up as best as possible, there was still a Holy place unreachable, indicating that there was another dimension off limits to the flesh. as we know this was bridged through Christ by His blood and the chief priest did this once a year to point to that. So we can go boldly to the Holiest. Heb 10.19

What “Most Holy” means is “not like this world”, “another dimension”, alternate reality” the true reality. The originator of all things, the fulfillment of all visions and parables.

In John 16.14 speaks of the Holy Spirit will Glorify Christ, the Holy Spirit will take what is Christ’s and explain it to us. So the question is… is the book about the Jewish people and the renewal of their kingdom? or is it about the revelation of Christ?

Icor 9 But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”[a]

10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

Fortunate for us we have access by faith in Christ which enters behind the veil into this reality. Let us be careful not to mix the unholy with the Holy.

Elijah to restore all things

#1 ELIJAH TO “RESTORE ALL THINGS”

At Christ’s transfiguration the disciples saw Him in His Heavenly state. Having tasted of His eternal reality they asked Him, Why do the scribes say Elijah must come first and restore all things?

Christ reply? ” I say to you Elijah has come already”.

Huh! People still say Elijah is coming even today, but why? To restore an earthly Kingdom?

Mt11.11 Jesus answered and said to them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first[a] and will restore all things. 12 But I say to you that Elijah has come already, and they did not know him. Do we?

So if Elijah came already what exactly did he restore? The Kingdom?

He can not restore the eternal unshakable Kingdom. (HE12.28)

But he does restore access to that Kingdom through the eternal gospel. As it is today and was back then, it needed to be restored as seen here.

Christ said in Mt 23.13, But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.

They were in the temple in Jerusalem and Christ said the “Kingdom of God is at hand”, or right here! He wasn’t talking about where they were standing in Jerusalem in the Temple of that day or any day.

John the Baptist made straight the way of the Lord by preaching the “Kingdom of God is at hand” in the desert, away from the “Holy city” and away from  a completed temple.

So what gets restored? Let’s look at Malachi 4 of the prophesy the disciples referred to.

Malachi 4. 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
6 And he will turn (restore)
The hearts of the fathers to the children,
And the hearts of the children to their fathers,
Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”

Hmm. What does that mean?

Well first bear in mind that all who came out of Egypt by Moses were called “children” That is right. All that are under the law are called children. (Galatians 4.1-3) All of the people of Israel were called children, even adults. Used over 120 times in the old testament “The children of Israel”. Referring to the 12 tribes.

Second, To those children under the law the term “fathers” meant Abraham Isaac and Jacob. This is who they called out to, the God and covenant of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. Used some 40 times.

So now lets dig a little deeper to the source in 1 Kings 18.37, in the prayer of Elijah.

36 And it came to pass, at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near and said, “Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, (the fathers) let it be known this day that You are God in Israel and I am Your servant, and that I have done all these things at Your word. 37 Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Lord God, and that You have turned (restored) their hearts back to You again.”
38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench. 39 Now when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, “The Lord, He is God! The Lord, He is God!”

Elijah turned (restored) their hearts back to Christ by calling upon the God of Abraham according to that pre-law covenant, to a status believers had before Moses and the law. He turned hearts to the fathers, the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for the covenant of faith.

The gospel had to be restored to what it was before the law and what it developed to be over the years. As we know, the law was added because of transgression till the seed would come (Gal 3.19). And again to the Jews chiding Him about marriage Christ said “it was not so from the beginning but Moses added it because the hardness of your heart. Indicating a change from Gods perfect will and a need to be restored.

John the Baptist in the spirit and ministry of Elijah restored access to the Kingdom (make straight the way of the Lord) by turning (restoring) their hearts to the faith of the fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. By restoring to them that form of belief of justification by faith unto righteousness for a relationship right now with the God ( Gen 15.6) who seeks those to worship Him in spirit and truth, away from Jerusalem and the temple.

Here is the what the Angel spoke to Zacharias, John the Baptist father about John’s purpose in life in Luke chapter 1

16 And he (John the Baptist) will turn (restore) many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. 17 He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn (restore) the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and (restore) the disobedient to the wisdom of the just (Abraham Isaac and Jacob) to make ready (restore) a people prepared for the Lord.” Meaning vessels prepared to receive the Son of whom all prophecies are fulfilled.

What did the Lord come to redeem, save and restore? A city? A nation? No. People
What did the Lord want to redeem, save or restore it to? A city? No. Himself
He came to redeem, save and restore people to Himself from a corrupt creation. As Christ prayed “Father I pray that you take them not out of the world, but you keep them from the evil one”. And He prayed “Father I pray that they may be with Me where I am that they may behold My Glory”. And that is with the Father. This is the restoration. Not an earthly kingdom. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the Kingdom of His Son. His Son is the Kingdom.

At the transfiguration the disciples were delighted to see Elijah and Moses. So much so in fact that they wanted to make them each a temple. But what did the Almighty say to them? “This is My beloved Son, Him you shall hear. The disciples after hearing this looked around and saw Jesus only.  Christ is the fulfillment of all the law and the prophets. It is as we gaze at Christ in His full glory that we are transformed.

So let us rejoice in that restoration which points to Gods full revelation of Himself in His Son and accept a full relationship with God in Christ right now, for what was lost in the garden of Eden is restored. Today is the day of Salvation/restoration with Him right now!

Adams Millennium

ADAMS MILLENNIUM

God spoke to Adam at the tree of knowledge saying “in the day you eat of it you shall surely die. Adam died at 930 years and with God one day is as a thousand years. Adam died “in that day” in his millennium. The aspects of Adam and the fall are patterns of Christ.

We understand from Galatians 3.13 that the cross is regarded as a tree, “cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”.
Adam and that tree and that millennium signified a type of fruit from another tree and another millennium. We eat of the body and the blood of Jesus who is the fruit of the tree of life instead of the apple of death. In “that day” you eat of it you shall truly live. All who believe in the Son of God on the cross and His day of “in that day” have passed from death unto life. They are gifted with the millennium by faith, the 1000 year reign where they recon themselves dead to sin and the Adamic nature and alive to Christ. This is what Hebrews is referring to when it says “there remains a rest to the people of God”. A millennium meaning “in that day”, to be entered by faith.
It was at the cross the curse was reversed and a new humanity was born, a new creation. You see Adam was in an earthen vessel, made from mud, as are we. It is not necessary to wait for another day, hence “today” harden not your hearts. Peter said that baptism was “not the putting off the body but an answer of a clear conscience to God”. We don’t need a new body to pick up where Adam left off at the curse. We resume according to the plan right now. This is the Gospel!
When Joshua took them into the land and divided it, the physical promise of “the land” was fulfilled. However Joshua spoke of another day, the Holy Spirit signifying that “the land” was an eternal promise not a literal one.
Let me explain. In Christ’s day people called Him the “Son of David”. Well Solomon was the son of David, but because the promise was eternal and Solomon died, they received the son promise as spiritual.
The same way as the promise of the land. Because the promise was given “forever”, it could not have referred to this world which is passing away. The promise of “the land” was a picture and shadow of being “in Christ”. There is not one reference in the New Testament of “the land”. It was replaced for “in Christ”. He is the place where all promises are fulfilled.
Here again. The Lord calls Israel His firstborn son. (Ex 4.22) but is Israel really His Son? Not anymore than Joshua brought them to the land or Solomon was an eternal King. For God is spirit and He is truth and He seeks such to worship Him, like Adam before the fall. This is the reconciliation and the atonement, the gospel. Not a physical king or land.
So to be in Israel is being in the Son instead of Adam. Israel started as a people being the 12 tribes, then pictured as the land but the point is, We are in Israel and we are in the land and we are in the son we are in that day if we are “in Christ”
But this is where the rubber meets the road. This is where faith comes in. Because we can not see it and grab it or point to it, then we are in doubt. We do not believe. But God who calls those things that do not exist, as though they did, has put before us a choice. While we look not on the things that are seen, but the things that are unseen. That is right. For without faith it is impossible to please Him. If we can’t walk forward in this land of which I speak, we are doing the same thing the deniers of Joshua and Caleb and are classified with those in Hebrews 3.7-18
Adamites sins are acts of the body. The new mans sin is “unbelief” for whatever is not of faith is sin. We are judged by God on how well we can believe His word, regardless of what we see with our eyes. This is the land of faith.
When we read the old testament and the term “in that day” is read. It is not always referring to a singular day, the same time, but the same events that happens over and over and relates to the harvesting, not “a harvest”. It is futile to try to reconcile all the verses that say “in that day” to mean a literal single time. “In that day” is to get us to cross over from fact to faith, from physical to invisible.  For in reading the old testament there remains a veil, but it is taken off in Christ. Can you see it?
This is the confusion of the “science of eschatology”, to assume most scripture is open to be fulfilled. The pictures and patterns were laid out and fulfilled in their day, it left no need for it to happen again the exact same way. They too were pictures and patterns. The cycle of events will repeat themselves in this world as they always have. Think about it. There is no other topic so divisive to the people of Christ then “end times”. Where do divisions come from? We who then are risen with Christ should seek the things above, not on the earth.  The woes on earth are to make people look up, to awaken to faith and escape fear.
There is coming a day when the creation itself will be delivered from corruption to the glorious liberty we have right now. Yes we have been delivered from corruption(2 Peter 1.4) And yes the elements will burn with a fervent heat and all the earth and all it’s works will be burned up and our inheritance will be undeniable for we are absent in physicality but present in the invisible in the spirit by faith. It however is true, more so then what you see because it was and is and is to come. It is always.
Gal 6.14, God forbid that I should boast except in the cross (tree) of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom[a] the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 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.Not a physical people, not a physical place.
The Israel of God? Yes that is us. Those who are hidden in Christ, the new creation.

 

What is the millennium age?

PRIVATE: MY ANSWER WHEN QUESTIONED ABOUT A MILLENIUM AGE

What is the purpose of another earthly temple, especially a man made one. My question of the thousand years as a kingdom with Christ in the flesh is what I don’t understand. It would be a time that would require no faith and that is not like Him. Flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom, His kingdom is not of this world, and we wait for the kingdom or righteousness which can only be the New Creation at the time when creation itself is delivered from the corruption. Romans 8.19-21

The people behind the temple today reference the Ezekiel temple as their pattern, when it was a vision of the eternal. Anyway the weakness and un-profitableness of this age cannot correctly portray these things, hence we look for a city whose builder and maker is God.

Once again I don’t see Christ, Peter or Paul refer to an earthly kingdom between the Jewish temple and the Heavenly city, quite the contrary. I don’t believe there will be any partial re-establishment of the old Covenant and that’s what an earthly city/temple would be. He takes away the first to establish the second. I believe the thousand year points to a heavenly reality. Revelation 20 never says Christ’s reign on earth is in His physical Presence. Daniel refers to the courts being seated, are we not seated? Are we not invited to His rest? Are we not ambassadors of another kingdom?

The rest is the sabbath, which is also interpreted thousand year reign in scripture just once.

We have a minister of the true sanctuary and true tabernacle which the Lord erected, not man. He 8.2
His tabernacle is perfect. He 9.11
The heavenly Holy of Holies is denied with an earthly temple.
Christ after dealing with sin, sat down at the right hand of God waiting till His enemies are made His footstool.

I don’t believe He is coming back to wage war, for our weapons are not carnal/earthly. His work at calvary is complete so He sat down and this is the rest, sabbath,millennium, reign of Christ we are invited to

The book of Hebrews is replete with pleadings to let go of the shadows, images, and patterns. Why would the Lord return to that? Those things are to take us o Him, not bring Him back. It is carnal thinking that turns the work and promises of Christ into future events to happen on earth.

We Speak What We Know

WE SPEAK WHAT WE KNOW

“Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness”.
At first glance we think “what’s the big deal?” The big deal is this, if somebody asked you about what you were going to eat and you said, “we are eating dinner then we will have desert after we sit down at ourtable. People would assume you were with somebody or that you were carrying passengers. (invisible friends)
The thing is Christ said that, while He was talking to Nicodemus. There is no mention of other people being there and it was actually at night that this conversation took place. Nicodemus did not want others to know he was even talking to Christ. If it was me in that situation I would exit stage left. We speak, We know , We see. Huh? C-ya! No wonder some people said he had a demon.
Yes this behavior is peculiar but there is more. Ya! So check this out. Jesus also frequently referred to himself as the third person. Here is an example from John 5.19:
 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you,the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.
He repeatedly calls himself “Son of man“, “Son of God” and He says things like “the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven”, “it’s time for the Son of man to be glorified”. He is talking of himself as the 3rd person.
He speaks of himself as if he is speaking of someone who is not there, but he is speaking of himself.
The truth of the matter is this. If you recall from the Genesis creation account, God said “Let us make man in our image and our likeness”. From this we can understand more of the plurality of God, and the Holy Spirit in Christ saying “We speak what We know and testify what We have seen.
With this in mind it makes sense that Christ spoke as 3rd person. A fact is this. Had Christ not been a plurality, He would not have been God. As scripture says ” for in Him dwells the fullness of the God head body”. and “He is the head of all powers and principalities” and “all things have been given to the Son”
I praise the father for this glorious gift for us.
Blessings

INTRODUCTION

There are so many distractions when it comes to our greater purpose. Life itself with all the demands around us. Things always commandeering our mind and physical senses. Most of the time we don’t even recognize this. We think as Christians that this will all stop, but then we find ourselves in a whole new set of challenges and distractions. Like which denomination am I? Which ones are distractions? I think all these questions are answered when we see “The One” calling us. I think He is as complicated and simple as the first words out of His mouth, His first expression to us. Even as it says in 1st John, “that which was from the beginning”. That is “The Kingdom of God is at hand” He is our purpose and the purpose of this blog to focus on “Him”.

Some may ask of my qualifications. Some may want to reference what I say with commentaries and other sources. We have to admire the Berean’s (Acts 17.11) for going to the source of all revelation, the scriptures. That is what I do. I will agree the the Apostle Paul when he says “the gospel that is preached by me is not according to man, I neither received it from man nor was I taught it, but it came through revelation of Jesus Christ”.

I have learned that everything about God is a revelation, and that the “Only Begotten Son” is His own self portrait. That “in Christ” is all His fullness and His invisible attributes. That silver and gold I want not, but His indescribable invisible gift of Himself. That all the promises of God have their fulfillment “in Him”. Not in an activity, or a church, or a nation, or an earthly kingdom, but “in Him” our citizenship is “in Him”. (Philippians 3.20).

If I am seen as foolish, and if it looks like I have nothing this I know, that being found “in Him” I have everything. That since I receive His righteousness, and I “put Him on” , as the new testament instructs, with all His invisible attributes, that I am clothed with the eternal and divest myself of these perishable rags, that those dressed in the world are the ones who are “poor blind and naked”. It is a pity that many who confess Christ see themselves as stuck in their humanity and wait for Christ to come as a man to rescue them from this world. He came preaching “the Kingdom of God is at hand” because He is “the Kingdom”! His reward is with Him because He is the reward, it is Him. He is the same yesterday today and forever! He is not of this age or creation. His kingdom is not a juncture in space and time but a reality.

When all the dust of this age settles, (Hebrews 12.22-28) when all that has been made has been removed, then all will see those who found “Him” shine. There will be many who weep because they did not grasp the fullness of the gift that was “at hand” that was available for them in this world by faith. Him who was and is and is to come. He always will be. For of is fullness we have received

This One who said “repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand!”. This was not a statement said then detracted as meaningless but is a truth for all of mankind for all of this age. HIS KINGDOM IS AT HAND! Where you are right now!

I Timothy 6.15-16 He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.

May He bless you with the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.

8th Day

8TH DAY

The Sabbath and the Lords day are different days. The Sabbath is the last day of creation signified by 7′s.

In Lev 23 at the conclusion of the 7th feast the people were given an 8th day. This was said twice marking the importance. The portrayal of the feast’s 1-7 had concluded it’s testimony. They would then repeat this 7 feast cycle every year, until?   Stick with me this gets good.
Joshua having entered “the land” and dividing it up had not entered the true rest only signified by the 7th day, for He spoke of another day, stated in Hebrews 4, hence showing “it is not of this creation” not of our world. Not available in this cycle of 7′s. He pointed to another, but the promise of the land was completed.
Solomon also having finished his portrayal of being “the King” in “the City” celebrating tabernacles the last feast, sent the people away on the 8th day. For Solomon was not the son spoken of, for the son was said to be eternal, so Solomon also referred to “another day” after the 7th day. And in Christ’s day, His new work, is why the true believers, seeing Christ on a donkey, knew He was what the portrayals represented, or pointed at, The true King. For they with faith looked past the value of the flesh riding on a donkey and saw One riding on a white horse.  The Savior.
For the law and the prophets could only testify to this, meaning they pointed to this day as the 7th feast concluded with, and the prophets spoke of another day and time, but that was only as far as they can go. But now the 7 feasts have been fulfilled, Christ has entered the tabernacle eternal in the heavens, not made with human hands, being our High Priest forever like Melchizedek, being the reality that all the feast’s and sacrifices pointed to Him, putting them to an end to never return to, Christ obtained eternal salvation. The series of 7′s have expired in Christ. Not just the Passover and Pentecost, for all the law and the prophets were until John who said “this is He” the Christ. Mt 11.13 Including the feast of Atonement and Tabernacles, or Christ has more work to accomplish in this creation, but He is done, henceforth waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. Can you accept this?
The feast’s pointed to this day, Joshua pointed to this day, even with David, “Today if you will hear my voice” then with Solomon as the King in the City, and many more like these all pointed not to a physical day, a physical land, a physical temple in a physical city, meaning not of this creation, the creation signified by 7′s, but the new creation cycle that has no day or night or physicality for the hour is coming and now is when you will will not on this mountain nor in Jerusalem worship the Father, for the Father is spirit and He is truth and He seeks such to worship Him. “TODAY” This is the creation we are called to, better yet born from. Amen?    For those who have ears to hear!
Again with the circumcision. All males shall be circumcised the 8th day. This too pointed to the “putting off of the flesh” after the cycle of 7 and putting the new man, as we are instructed to do by faith. Another portrayal pointing to “the 8th day” Meaning the new creation.
Here again from Revelation 5, the scroll sealed with 7 seals and all who looked on wept “because no one was found worthy to open it”. Enclosed and sealed within the feasts is the new creation, much like in a cocoon to be opened, and if Christ had not come to do His second work, His second creation, we too would weep today, but Christ at the cross removed the seven seals by fulfilling the requirements, hanging on the cross like an eternal billboard sign, an invitation to all humanity, taking away the hand written ordinances that were contrary to us, He opened up the scroll written inside and out, which is Him, the word of God. The veil, His flesh filleted, arms wide open inviting all who will accept Him.
As for those still bound by doubt in the Sabbath and feast’s? Paul addressed this with these words, “you observe days, months, seasons and years. I am afraid for you that I have labored in vain”.
Let us not “insult the Spirit of grace and count the blood of Christ a common thing”. And let us go on to maturity not laying again the foundation of dead works, baptisms laying on of hands and resurrections and this we will do if God permits.
So brethren, see how silly the arguments of a Saturday Sabbath verses a Sunday Sabbath really is? Christ rose on the first day after the Sabbath day, before the first light ray. Mt 28.1, Which is also the 8th day, being the first day of the new creation. And we are a new creation, 2 Cor 5.17.  This is the day we celebrate every day!!!!!!!

Ekienos 2 and the plurality of God

EKIENOS # 2 AND THE PLURALITY OF GOD. 3/19/14

In previous articles we discussed the nature of God as being a plurality. Some call this the trinity. This one God, or THEY who said in the beginning “let US make man in OUR image and OUR likeness “. Unlike Adam and Eve who were made in Gods likeness “male and female made He them”. They were split and portrayed “selves”, from the Greek “autos” that became one in covenant to show the plurality and the unity of God. That is a unity that has always been with God, but we understand this in marriage. The two become one to be able to have offspring. And we are the offspring of God being of the New Covenant by receiving His word or DNA and breath. His DNA  is written not on tablets of stone but on our heart by God.

We also discussed how in John 3 Jesus said to Nicodemus “we speak what we hear and we testify what we have seen”. How Christ was one and plural at the same time by saying “we”. Christ was in the father and the father in Him. Christ was in the spirit and the Spirit was in Him. Hence a plurality in unity. Adam and Eve portrayed on the outside visibly for us what God is on the inside. In the Spirit. A place that we can’t see with our human eyes so He broke His image down for human consumption. That is he purpose of all the pictures and patterns. For God to show us Himself. And all the old testament pictures and patterns are complete in Christ of which the word says “no one as seen God at any time, but the Son declares Him”. What the old testament did in parables, the Son now tells believers plainly about the Father for the Father is manifest in Him. “Thomas if you have seen me you have seen the Father”.
We discussed how the Gospel of John uses the Greek word “ekienos”. A word every where else is translated “they” and “them” but in John it is translated “He” and “Him”. As though John didn’t know what he was talking about and he needed the English translators to fix it for him. I am sure John knew exactly what he was doing and the translators should have appropriately rendered “ekienos” “they” and “them”.
So today we look at the first Epistle of John and we have the translators trying to fix John once again by changing (ekienos) to “he” and “him”. They also frequently change “autos” to “Him” when “autos” is a gender neutral term that means “self” male or female. We will expound on this in other posts.
So from first John 2.6 it says that “whoever abides in Him ought to walk even as He walked”. It should say that we “ought to walk even as They (ekienos) walked”. So by that scripture I learn that “They walk in me as I walk in them”.
In 3.3 of us being the offspring of God “everyone who has this hope purifies them-self even as He (ekienos )  pure”. Meaning, They are pure.
And 4.17 “Herein is our love made perfect… because as He (ekienos) is so are we in the world. This should say … because as They are so are we in the world. So are we in the world as they are, in spirit and truth, in plurality.
This is the same plurality (ekienos) Isaiah describes. “In the year king Uzziah died I saw the Lord high and lifted up”. Here we have the spiritual principle I have discussed in other posts. An earthly king sown corruptible and through a revelation the true King raised incorruptible in Isaiah’s mind. To the invisible unchangeable ever ready always present truth . The kingdom of God is at hand. And right after that the Lord says through Isaiah  ”Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us? This is the plurality of God. Us.
The whole purpose of the gospel is to bring us to this. To be reconciled to the father in the son and the spirit. He who has the Father has the Son. And he who has the Son has the Bride. (John 3.29) He who has the Son has the Father and this is all done in the Spirit who bears witness, who testifies to the Son, this Bride is the “anointing we have received that teaches us all things (eternal)”. Of whom when the spirit comes “the Helper whom the Father sends who will teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance. Another helper, a different person in the Godhead, the comforter, the Spirit of truth whom the Father sends so you won’t be orphans, the other parent who is not Jesus but His Bride. The one who is not known by the world for they neither see her or know her. And this is eternal life that you may know Them, the “ekienos” in Him.
John opens up in his first epistle with these words. “That which was in the beginning which we have seen, which we have handled, concerning the Word of life. The life was manifest and we have seen and we bear witness and we declare to you that you also may have fellowship with us, that you may be one with us, with the Father and the Son”. John is speaking in the plurality like Christ was to Nicodemus by saying “We”. His invitation is just that. “We ought to walk as they  (ekienos) walked. We should acknowledge the plurality of God in Christ in us.
This is the fulfillment of Christ’s prayer in John 17 “that they all may be one, as you Father are in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, that they may be made perfect in one”. This was said by the One who also said “Let there be light” and the light happened immediately. He who made the lame whole immediately with a word. Can you believe this? Can you receive this? Then it is now and it is for you. Christ spoke the prayer and it is a reality.
And what we have is not a perfect flesh but a perfect understanding to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Eph 4.13 in the here and now. “We have the mind of Christ”.
As Christ said “I go to prepare a place for you that where I am you may be also”. This is that place. The place as He says “I go to prepare a place for you”, “If I do not go the comforter will not come. As we receive “another helper” we enter that place. That place is what Christ meant when He said “the Kingdom of God is at hand. Like Uzziah had to be sown a flesh king for Isaiah to see the Lord high and lifted up, so too Jesus as a man has to be sown in our understanding, planted in human form to ascend to be high and lifted up in the spirit. As He said to Mary “do not cling to me yet for I have not ascended.
Another principle we have been discussing is “He takes away the first to establish the second” That is why Christ had to go for us to receive the Spirit. Not that He wasn’t already in all power. It was our brain, our new man that had to follow this, so that “where I am you may be also”. This is the purpose of all the pictures and patterns and the purpose of the Son himself. To take us to the Father. ” Go tell the brethren that I have ascended to my God and to your God, to My father and your Father. Cling to this! Be ye reconciled to ekienos, be joined and receive the sweet union given to us in Christ Jesus from before the foundations of the ages. Ekienos.
Christ didn’t have to do something that wasn’t done. He didn’t have to become something He wasn’t for He is the same yesterday today and forever. He had to walk it out for us so that we could follow Him to the Father. “Father if there is any other way?  Jesus the man walked it out for us only. For you cannot add or take away from eternity, you can only partake in Him, and everything eternal is “in Him”. Ekienos saw humanity blind and disarray and said “Whom shall We send, whom shall go for us?” They sent the  Son.
I pray that you know and understand that when the Lord says “come my people enter your chambers” He is not talking about a place where feet can go, but this place we have been talking about. This place we receive when the Son is ascended and seated. Not that he wasn’t for He said Father restore to me the Glory I had before. He set it aside.
I have talked about what I have seen and told you what I have heard. Um, I mean we talk about what we have seen and we tell you what we hear. Ekienos and our unity in the plurality of God “in Christ”.
John 14.21 In “that day” you will know that I am in the Father and you in Me and I in you. This is “that day”. Today! If you will hear His voice.

THE MISSING LINK FOUND

The topic of the missing link has been a hotly contested in the scientific community for over a hundred years to try and confirm the theory of evolution, the mutation of a species from amoebae to fish to reptile, bird, insect, to mammals and man to what? Some hope a new evolution and a new humanity.

It is funny that they are looking for a link between monkey and man but there are hundreds if not thousands of missing links between all the species. A missing link would be a thing of dual natures.  As much time that has been spent looking for “the missing link” there is a missing link that has been over looked in the debate. That is the God man known as Jesus or Yeshua. This God man was equally man and God, not being part man and part God but being fully man and fully God. The first in the New humanity.

Here is the split in creations which is the fall of man having a  broken relationship with God. Hence the need for a representative of man and a representative from God. And if he was not  both natures He could not fairly represent either one. Similarly the purpose of our whole political system. The governed and the government. The electorate and the elected and the lobbyist. Everyone wants to be heard, understood and acted fairly upon. The courts and the Judge, the prisoner and prisons. Judgement, arbitration and retribution. To arbitrate fairly on behalf of the warring creations. For the spirit wars against the flesh and the flesh wars against the spirit so Jesus was called the son of God and the son of man qualifying his ability to do just that.
He is our advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous, He who is also described as our “mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus”. For him to represent us He has to be one of us. He had to come from our trenches not just as a spectator but in total experience. He who in the days of His flesh, offered up prayers for us with sobbing and weeping. He could not have done this without being one of us. His compassion touched every level of pain we could experience and more. For “He by the grace of God tasted death for every man”.Why? So we wouldn’t have to. For on Him was laid the inequity of us all and by His stripes we are healed. For it pleased the Father to bruise Him for our sake.
The Father the Son and the Holy Spirit talked of this great gulf between our species and formulated the plan of salvation. From Isaiah 6, whom shall go, who shall we sent from us?” We know Him who’s goings forth were of old to everlasting, being from eternity past to eternity future, Christ the same yesterday today and forever, the forever man, the man who also was God, the one necessary to save all of mankind. He who was the propitiation for the whole world.
This is the only missing link that is not a perversion, a genetically modified hybrid. He is the one and only link between a species. Without Him humanity would be forever lost. Who is worthy to open the scroll and to remove the seals (to reveal the New Creation)? Behold the lion from the tribe of Judah. Then they beheld the lamb as though it had been slain and He then came and took the scroll. Having expired all the pictures that preserved humanity, God sent the Son and rescued it. The Son did what all the law and the prophets could not do. He provided a baptism that exceeded the baptism of Moses. He was the true waters and He was the rock that was smote. He was the true manna. He was the red heifer. He was the sacrifice lamb, He was the lamb sent into the wild. He was every message ever displayed by the old ways and then having expired them. “Lo I have come in the volume of the book to do thy will”.  He set them on a shelf for our perusal. God who in times past spoke to the fathers by pictures and parables has in these last days spoken by His Son. They are fulfilled in the life of Christ.
 The point here is that all the law and the prophets were attempts to get believers to cross over in species, to become a born from above new creation. It wasn’t that it was not offered before Christ, it was not easily understood so the road had to be widened and made straight as was prophesied of John the Baptist, “make straight the ways of the Lord”. If there had been a law or a prophecy that worked Christ would not have come. “Father if there is any other way” And having provided several attempts we now look to the God man. For all other attempts were pictures for us on whom the end of the age has come. They spoke not for themselves but for us about the grace of God. For the law was by Moses but grace and truth by Jesus Christ.
The prophets searched of what manner of time the Spirit of Christ who was in them, testifying of the sufferings of Christ and the Glories that would follow. We who believe are those Glories that follow. He was the first fruit and we are a kind of first fruit of His creation. That is the new creation. So we too are these missing links severally being members of His body the fullness of Him who fills all and all.
Those of old pictured the Passover lamb where death invisibly passes over like for us. Which was also continuously re-stated in the sacrifices by burning the skin and the carcass “outside the camp”. This was all finished in Christ as He received the burning judgment of all from the Almighty God on our behalf.
Those of old were provided the picture of baptism with Noah’s flood and crossing the Red Sea, crossing the Jordan, and  with John the baptist as well as others. These all taught not the putting off of the filth of the flesh put an answer of a clear conscience.They pointed to the serpent on a pole which is Christ on the cross as an event past, which gave them passage into the future. They were all to do this by faith as are we. To enter the very presence of God. “There remains a rest to the people of God for he who has entered his rest has ceased from his works as God did”. To be with Him where He is as Christ prayed.
And if Christ said it we can do it. And having put off the old man by faith we do. Paul’s words from Romans, walk in newness of life. We have to “recon ourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ”. And since the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead has already quickened your mortal body by His Spirit who dwells in you. For as many as are led by this Spirit of God, these are the sons of God”. These are first fruits bearing His likeness being several copies of the missing link. As He is, so are we in this world. We being transformed (2 Cor 3.18) being metamorphosed by His Spirit by looking at the Glory we become Glory, being the Glories that would follow. 1 Peter 1.11.  Romans 8. 30 For whom He for knew these He also called and whom He called these He justified and these He justified He also Glorified.
                                                               Our New Citizenship
We are card carrying members of the Kingdom of God. Not written with binary code on a magnetic strip on a piece of plastic, but having the word of God written on our circumcised hearts with the finger of God. We are the true Israel of God.  As plastic credit cards allows privileges in society our citizenship is heaven and we have certain privileges. From Galatians 6.15, What avails heaven, or grants access now for us is this new creation in us. We can now go boldly to the throne of Grace anytime. We can go in and out and find (food) pasture anytime. We have a city whose gates are always open to it’s citizens (fellowship). A place where there is no day or night, no sun or moon, but the lamb is it’s light, for He is the true light that has come into the world. Where those who are sorcerers, murders, and idolaters and whoever loves a lie cannot enter. Where flesh and blood cannot inherit this kingdom. Where those who through faith can go.
                                               Hebrews 12.22-24 paraphrase.
For we have come to Mount Zion,the city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem, to the general assembly, to the called out ones, the firstborn, those who are registered in heaven, to God the judge of all, to the place of just men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator between God and men with the New Covenant being in force because the blood was already spilled which the blood of Abel testified of.
               The False Gospel of Another Day. One yet in the future.
You cannot partake of this Kingdom if in your mind it is yet future. That  if you believe that Christ still  has to fulfill Danial 9 and finish transgression, make an end of sacrifice and sin, that He must seal vision and prophesy and anoint the Most Holy. If you dwell these having to be completed in the end times and eschatology you are not entering in. Like the Pharisees who thought the kingdom would appear, Christ said to them “you are not entering My Kingdom and you are not allowing those who are trying to do so either. Of those leaders He said “it is better for you to be tied off with a millstone and drowned then for you to offend any of my little ones. You are a denier of the true Christ and offer a counterfeit kingdom in Satan”s realm. Satan showed Christ all the kingdoms throughout time and offered them to Him. Christ rejected them, all of them. And again with His words “My kingdom is not of this age” meaning of the creation of emc=square, big bang of time and matter.
The word of God is not constrained but our thinking is. He is looking for those to worship Him in not in earthly Jerusalem but in Spirit and truth now. His Kingdom is found “In Christ” The lack of thinking in faith keeps people out. The carnal mind is a veil that blinds us to His Reality. Or is it to be fulfilled in our lifetime? At any point in time? In this age at all? If you answered yes the god of this age has blinded you and robbed you of your reward, your inheritance. To be “In Christ” is to grow in understanding of Him and His Kingdom. The one that “Is at hand” now. “Do not seal this book for the time is at hand!” Rev 22.10.  At Hand today and 2000 years ago.
Paul begged those who were in Corinth to understand this. We are ambassadors from Christ as though God was pleading through us because of the work of Christ. The heralding call was “be ye reconciled to God”. To be one with, at-one-ment. Like Adam and Eve before the fall. As workers together do not receive the grace of God for an unfruitful purpose. For God says “In an acceptable time I have heard, and of the day of salvation? I have helped. Behold now is the accepted time! Now is the day of salvation! Why in the world do we look for a second coming as though that is the solution? The great doctor has seen our illness and our affliction and has given us the diagnosis, the treatment and the solution. Him who spoke a word and the lame walked has spoken to us and  It is not the second coming. For on Him was laid the chastisement for us all and by His stripes ye are healed. When did that happen? The new covenant is in effect and is only for the new creation,
There cannot be a king without a kingdom or He is just a dreamer. And this kingdom has a capitol city and a time. In this case anytime you are able to accept it by faith. Then you would be citizens of a holy nation of Kings and priests if you have been there. Are we not seated in Heaven according to His word? Then as ambassadors from that place we too offer the same invitation as our Lord. Repent, believe the Gospel. The Kingdom of God is At Hand. Enter into the true union and full blessings “In Christ”.
