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

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

 

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

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

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

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

Resurrection Defined

Download PDF
1/02/16
Resurrection is commonly taught  as taking place at the end of the carnal life, at the death of the human body. That heaven and the Kingdom of God or an eternal bliss is later.
   To understand scriptural resurrection we must first understand what the fall is because resurrection is essentially  a reversal of the fall of Adam and Eve. “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. To this they must be lifted from the fall to be raised or resurrected,  restored, renewed and made whole. And how is this to be done? Through the gospel.
   Resurrection is a restoration a redemption and a renewal of what was lost and displayed  in the account of the Garden of Eden. This is when and where mankind fell saying “in that day you shall surely die” and it was immediate. They spiritually died by loosing the indwelling of Gods Holy Spirit. In the beginning God created man from the dust of the Earth then he breathed in him the breath of life and he became a living soul. When he fell he lost the Breath of Life. He lost eternal life and was sent out of the garden saying that he was denied the tree of life is to eat and live forever. To this he needed be restored and this is the purpose of the Gospel. For us to be a living soul and eat of the tree of life and live forever. If we believe the gospel this is what we receive.
For the reversal of the fall we learn from book of Romans. ” Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life”. And ” 10 And “if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead also gives life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who (now) dwells in you”.  And “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.”  
   This is scriptural resurrection without a visual death. And when “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” He demonstrated for us that godliness, meaning God-Like-Ness can happen in our human bodies. Christ had a human body and said “I am the resurrection and the life” and Adam had a body before he fell when the Father said of him “it is good, very good.” This is the Restoration in the resurrection.
 Now from the old testament.
Isaiah said of this “Your dead shall live;
Together with my dead body[b] they shall arise. (26.19)
   Here we have a revelation from the prophet, that we rise in Christ. “In His dead body we shall arise”. We rise in his dead body not our own. This is what it means to be “in Christ” and not “in Adam”. All who are in Adam are dead, but in Christ we live. We associate with Christ of who Isaiah was talking about through baptism by the working of faith when we denounced our previous association with our Adam fallen sinfulness and die to that to come up out of the water proclaiming to be righteous and new. And if we profess that? You can be sure that God will hold you accountable to that event and your words.
To be “in Christ” is to be in the new Adamic replacement. Paul called Christ “the last Adam” who became “a life giving spirit”. He goes on to say that “we knew Christ in a human body , but we know Him like that no more” describing Christ’s invisibleness, but also showing that “in Him dwells the fullness of the God head body” while He was incarnate. Yes! The Word became flesh and dwelled among us for us to be like Him while we are incarnate saying “as He is so are we in the world”. And we are like Him now if we can learn to receive it.
Here then is the problem. We baptize in religious settings then turn and talk about the 2nd coming Christ. To another resurrection of another  time when a God man will visit planet earth and deliver us from all our woes and resurrect or rapture our mortal bodies and this is the error. Because “From dust ye are to dust you return” and flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom”. But the mind does, and “that which is flesh is flesh and that which is spirit is spirit, you must be born again”. How? By these words. “We are brought forth by the word of truth to be a first fruit of His creation” while we are in our humanity. Or if you can’t believe this? Then believe the lie and wait.
   Was the Word who became flesh they call Jesus the savior? Did He rise from the dead? Then perform your duty of faith and believe! Rise with His dead body and receive your inheritance now. For all the promises of God are yes and amen in Christ”. And “TODAY is the day of salvation.  That other message is of another saving of another savior of another resurrection in a different time? That is what detains many from their inheritance now.
  Here is another perspective.  2 Corinthians 5.1 For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked.
    Here we have Paul explain that our new body is not physical saying when the body is destroyed we shall not be found naked. Why? Because hopefully you are not waiting for a new physicality but are being clothed with our new habitation which is from heaven now. “lest we be found naked”. That is where the 2nd coming mindset leaves you. Naked. We are to be clothing ourselves with our heavenly habitation, our attire our new nature now. The new body is now as we re-assemble the testimony of the Word of God being the very genetic code of Gid we absorb in ourselves and become new. Even as Paul went on to say: 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ,” And this all happens in the here and now because of the proof at the cross. Not at an illusive 2nd coming. “We are a new creation”? Yes! The newness is as we put on Christ as scripture mandates. We see Him as He is before He became flesh and dwelled among us. Which is? Invisible like the Father. The Word of God fully expresses the thoughts if God and the two are one. We become one with them “for we have the mind of Christ”. No Man has seen the Father ? Yes, but Christ declared Him” for our transfiguration. He made the Father visible to the respirited mind of faith. Even as the man Jesus said ” He who has seen Me has seen the Father and from now on you have seen Him and known Him”. How? By revelation. Revelation being a renewed thinking as we accept God as He truely is. Eternal, immortal, invisible. The only wise God”. 
Paul instructs us to put on our heavenly habitation from God eternal in the heavens now while we are sojourning in the human body so that we are not found naked? Meaning spiritually naked. Not naked like Adam who clothed himself in a fig leaf and not of God. He chose the physical over the spiritual and broke free from God. This is the reason Christ prayed “Father that they may be one (equal) with us”. So the resurrection is our invisible, eternal part that we put on now.
      Doesn’t scripture say that we are being transformed into His self same image from the glory to the glory by the spirit? Then why are some waiting and looking to the sky as tho they will be lifted up and leave their empty clothes laying on the ground as if they discard their falleness then? These people are “poor blind and naked”. Poor because they reject the gift, blind because they think the Kingdom is later, and naked because they wait for a physical change. Even Paul said in 1 Corinthians that the physical body is first and then the spiritual.  The body returns to dust. But some think it’s raptured?
So we have to discard the traditional religious concept of new life after a dead body as Jesus said ‘he who believes in Me has passed from death to life ”  and receive the resurrection of faith As Defined By scripture. That “TODAY is the day of salvation “. That we return to being a living soul. God says “I have heard and i have helped” And as John the Baptist said ” behold the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world”? And he did to the renewed mind by renewing the spirit. Meaning the saving from the world and the consequences of the curse for the restoration the redemption the renewal and the resurrection as scripture repeatedly says.
     This is the fulfillment  of what Jesus said “Father I pray not that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from evil ” so He does. The curse is reversed to the renewed mind of faith. This is our invisible part that we keep when the body is discarded and after. The body cannot add or take away from this. But the mind can for “we are partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust”? So we do.
      Simply put resurrection means we are no longer in a fallen condition with Adam “. We are lifted up from the fall to what Adam lost. We are raised “with My dead body they shall arise”.. Adam and Eve fell and need to be lifted back up from a fallen state, a state of being dead by loosing fellowship with God by loosing His holy spirit. That was death, not a physical death.
     To be respirited means to be redeemed, restored and recreated to realize that everything from the beginning has been good very good and to partake of that. That is “if you can receive it”.
    We are raised up “to the last day” and not at the last day. Jesus tried to explain this to Mary and she didn’t get it so He cried.  Why? Because it’s the Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” which the 2nd coming seekers deny because they look for a physical event, but the fall was spiritual. There was no cataclysmic event when he fell and there is none when we rise. It happens in the blink of an eye, unnoticeable to human perceptions. It was in the thinking that the departure took place.
 
We are in Adams “In that day ye shall surely die”, or we are “in Christ, in “The Day of our Lord” by what we believe “The Lords Day”, “In That Day”. We are in the day you shall surely live. This is TODAY if you can hear His voice. And “see that you do not refuse Him who speaks from heaven?
     There are two time frames. The many days of Adamic humanity defined by days measured in 24 hour intervals where everything is in a constant fight with death and decay, or “That Day” known as the day of the Lord. The day where there is no night for the Lamb is it’s light. The day that has no start or end where the Almighty lives. Not Adams days but “That Day”.
Isaiah 59.1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear.” But some preach of another saving and rob people of Gods saving power. The 2nd coming mindset creates double minded people who are “unstable in all their ways, let not that man suppose he will receive anything from the Lord”. (James 1.8) So they pray repetitiously and say Gods will be done, but scripture says “ask anything in My name and the Father will do it”. They do not have this. They do not have the correct savior.
This is what it means to be “in Christ”. Our old man is buried with Him through baptism so that as He was raised from the dead to newness of life so are we. And this resurrection happens by faith through the gospel. That “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation” which is? Peter said “you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.” What does this have to do with an end time scenario?  And what does it have to do with a carnal rapture?
Lets look at some more. When you start to see it the scriptures take on new meaning. For if you see the saving as later? You are behind the veil. Your mind is darkened by the God of this age. Read: 2 Corinthians 3 and 4 to understand the veil more) 
Collossians 2.11 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins[c] of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the (invisible to the human eye) working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him.
So if you are blinded to this you can’t have this. Your mind is darkened by a distorted gospel. But “we rejoice with joy inexpressable and full of glory”.
Gods Kingdom is at hand, on the tip of your tongue. His kingdom is for today. It is Him putting off the body of sins of the flesh. Like the circumcision of the heart. WE ARE MADE NEW. We are in this way a new creation,  restored to the beginning to sojourn as man was intended before the fall. This is “that which is from the beginning.
To put off the body of the sins of the flesh is not to put off the body but the sins. The thing the flesh embodies is a belief system. Much like a book embodies certain characteristics? The book can remain but edit out certain concepts so too with the body. “For we have this treasure in earthen vessels so that the glory may be of God and not ourselves”. Yes. It’s a new embodiment of principles much like rewriting the content of the book. The story line changes. The rescripting changes the ending.
      This is what happens when we put off the sins of doubting God and distrusting Him. We “through faith anf patience inherit the promises”. Not being just a remembrance of the promises but inheriting the very character content the promises describe. We inherit the very scripting of God, the very spirit by which it is written and not just words waiting to be fulfilled at some ambiguous 2nd coming.
This is the concept of “putting on Christ” one attribute at a time “till we all come to the fullness and stature of the Son of God”. A replica. For “as He is so are we in the world”. And we are that as we adopt His embodiment of words being re-spirited for faith. For “faith comes by hearing the words of God”. We grow in this way. We look at scripture “as in a mirror” till we become the thing that is defined between the pages. “Till the day (of the old way of thinking) dawns and the morning star rises in our hearts”. This is the transformation into Gods invisible attributes described in scripture “from glory to the glory as by the spirit”.
    This is totally different then the religious concept of putting off the flesh altogether as though that is sin or bad. That we don’t do because the flesh itself is only a reflection of the contents, “So let your light shine”?
     Now if what we just talked about could be true. If you think you need to bludgeon or discard the vessel? You see Adam was in his human vessel before he died in the spirit. He then walked in death having lost Gods Holy Spirit. So the resurrection can happen while we are in our humanity by putting off only the sins of the flesh and not the vessel of the flesh itself. This is the true non religious resurrection as defined by scripture. For “those who are the sons of God are those who follow the spirit of God”. And this is what God expects us to do. “Lest we be found naked”.
This all happens as Christ showed. The pre-exsitent word became flesh and dwelled among us”? Here is the proof that the resurrection can happen in the human body. Did not the man Jesus say “I am the resurrection and the life”? Check mate. You need to make an adjustment to your thought process to receive this because “He has given us everything that pertains to life and Godliness according to the knowledge of Him who cailed us to glory and virtue., This is the treasure in earthen vessels. To put off the body of the sins of the flesh and not the body itself.
The Kingdom of God is at hand, active for today.

Redemption in 3 Stages

Download PDF

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

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

 

The Curse Reversed with creation

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

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

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

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

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

 

To purify as He is pure

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

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

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

Scriptural Stewardship Part 2 A Prophets Reward

Download PDF

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

Today! If you will hear His voice.

The Kingdom of God is at hand.

Amen.

Scriptural Stewardship part 1 Joseph

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

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

2nd Coming Knock Knock

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

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

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

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

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

Currency and Keys to the Kingdom

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

New Creation Part 7 Eternal Life

Download PDF

Eternal life is thought of as something to experience when Jesus comes back to renew planet earth and we all live happily ever after. From that time on. Old heaven and earth pass away and all things become new and restored to what God had spoken in the 6 days of creation followed by His Sabbath. The 7 days of creation. This is partially the reason they can’t except the new creation now, but Paul said that we are the new creation, old things have passed away and all things become new”. Is this true? Not if you believe what we just described. I mean you can’t have an old earth and a remodeled earth at the same time. So what then is the new creation and what is eternal life?

 
Eternal life is generally tied to this view of the new creation. That when Jesus comes back He will make all things new. That we will see Him new and we too will become like Him new. That the big clock in the sky will be reset to time zero and that we will commence to live eternal life from that moment forward.
 
That view however humanly logical it may seem has holes in it. It is still associated with time having a beginning and is thereby disqualified as being eternal. It also associates with a renewed composition having physical properties of matter that is subject to breaking down and deteriorating, but Hebrews 12.27+ describes the removal of all the things that are made so that what is eternal may remain. The eternal things already are. They were not made and have no beginning and can have no end. That is what eternal means. Everything that has a beginning has an end. Everything eternal is already there. And Gods gift to us is eternal.
 
Eternal life therefor is not connected to time and matter of any sort. It is associated with that which is before time. God only, and this is what is offered publicly through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Hence”enter the kingdom prepared for you from the foundations of the world” Being pre-existent, separate from time and matter. The only thing that precedes all time, matter and creation, be it visible or invisible is God. In the beginning there was God, and only God, nothing else. Only God is eternal. And in God was the Son (unspoken) and the Spirit (un-breathed). We can understand God like ourselves in this way. Thought produces word and spirit/breath. It is the word and spirit that came forth from thought and created. “In the beginning God said… and the Spirit of God brooded” Genesis 1.1+2
 
It is This timeless, eternal, non-elemental pre-existent God that is our gift of eternal life. Everything else has a beginning and is not eternal. He is pre-existing. That is why scripture says of Jesus that “He comes and His reward is with Him to give to each one”. To give what? Himself. This is the true God and eternal life “In Christ”. And if you are “In Christ” you have Him, and you have eternal life now. And this is not associated with anything that has a beginning or an end.
This is why when God rested on the 7th day He rested from His works. Away from things that have a beginning and an end. And this is the place of our calling, to enter His rest saying “therefor there remains a rest to the people of God…Let us fear lest any of you come short of it, for the works were finished from the foundations of the world”. It is this place outside of time matter, being before time and matter to which we are called.
This place of rest is where we are called by Jesus saying to follow Him that where He is we may be also. This is the purpose of the true gospel “For the gospel was preached to us as well as them, but the word they heard did not profit them , not being mixed with faith. (the ability to see the invisible) “for we who have believed have entered that rest”. And where is that rest? Pre-existent with the Father. From where the Word and the Spirit of God came from. The very thought of God. That which is from the beginning where the thought and the Word of God are at rest. The finished work of Jesus Christ, the lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Him who is seated in the heavens.
 
Now if you got all that, then you can see why the 2nd coming Jesus gospel is another gospel, “a strong delusion to believe the lie if possible to deceive the elect”. It proclaims another creation of time and matter. Another physical experience. “But God is spirit and seeketh such”. 
 
The gift of eternal life is In the Son, “In Christ”. Those who are “In Christ” are in the non-elemental, timeless God, the gift of eternal life now. The place called God. He rested from creation “in Himself” and Jesus said “All the things the Father has are mine” This is “In Christ”. He who has the Son has the Father, he who has the Father has the Son. They are One.
 
John 17.5 Jesus said “Now Father Glorify Me together with Yourself with the Glory I had with You before the world was”. And if we are “In Christ” as we profess, then we are in this place of rest in Glory. His very thoughts, “for we have the mind of Christ”. We have entered His rest. This is the true God and eternal life. (1st John 5.20)
 
Now I pray you can see and understand that the second coming gospel is a completely different message. It siphons people away from this truth to divert them down a different path into a cul-de-sac of confusion waiting for another Jesus to reset time and start over so they can get on with eternal life. They are idle in the spirit.
 
You cannot believe both of these gospels at the same time. You must choose. Is our gift “In Christ” now where the God-Head exists? Where only God exists? Where we are complete “In Him”? Or is the future not ours to see, que-sera-sera?
 
Eternal life is a gift which has no beginning or end like those who live there. Thought, Spirit and Word (John 5.7). We receive the word, incubated by the Spirit to return to Thought which is the Father for our reconciliation (2 Cor 5.20).
Didn’t the Lord say “My Word shall not return to Me void but shall accomplish all My desire”? This is not the old creation of time and matter that deteriorates but that which never fades or wanes or deteriorates for it never starts it already is and always will be Glorious, exactly the same brand new every day because it is the only day with no night having no darkness for God is light and In Him is no darkness, no variance nor shadow of turning at all, and we walk in the light as He is in the light for He is the Light, the eternal light. This is the “day of the Lord” The eternal day. Christ’s day. It is from the beginning our days are modeled after. His was first. 
 
The 2nd coming gospel offers a different message of a day that is not yet but will be when Jesus comes to planet earth to defeat His enemies and save us, the same things He fought at the cross. Then we will start eternal life. This is a false gospel of that which is not yet.
So is it that which was and is and always will be? Or the satanic version of who is not yet but will be King, Jesus of the future? 
 
He stands at the door and knocks and His reward is with Him. So be careful how you answer. because He is right here right now and need not become anything for He always is. He is God. It is we who are transformed into His likeness. Not the other way around.
 
The Kingdom of God is at hand.

We are not to seek physical events on planet earth as fulfillment of Gods word. His words are spirit (Jn6.63) For it is a wicked and adulterous genome that seeks after a (physical) sign”. It is wicked and adulterous because it takes the things of God and weds, or mixes it with the things of this world, that is of this creation. But God is not of the created and He does not create Himself for He already was. “That which is from the beginning”. It is the sinful carnal mind that makes God a man. (Rom 1.23)

 
Gods creation of time and matter has His signature but He does not become the created for He would then present a false image of Himself, a lie, and God cannot lie. “God is spirit and God is truth and He seeketh such”. This is our calling and His purpose for the gospel. We go to Him through Christ, the word of God that where He is we may be also.
 
The only sign given them was as the prophet Jonah was in the belly of the whale 3 days so too Christ would be in the belly of the earth and that has happened. As 1st John said “Jesus has come in the flesh”. To come that way no more. 2 Corinthians 4.16 we once knew Christ in the flesh but we know Him that way no more”. The incarnation has happened. Any other such expectation is just a carnal illusion sent by God to distract those who reject the truth of the gospel of the true Jesus Christ. (2 Thes 2.11)
 
As Jesus confessed the good confession to Pontus Pilate, (Jn 18.36-37) that His kingdom is not of this age, not of this world, not of the creation of time and matter, or He would send legions of angels to fight for it. Everyone who is of the truth hears this voice. But there is a far greater place of our inheritance that can never fade or wane in glory. To this we are received to through faith in the renewing of the mind. The spirit of our mind. “For god seeketh such”.
 
The same mouth that spoke creation “let there be light” spoke another light of another place. He spoke His son who is the true light of an eternal substance that shines in the heart of every man, The Son is the spoken word, the gospel. The gospel is the word already spoken. The gospel is the DNA of God, being the never fading or waning creation for our metamorphosis, our transfiguration, our transformation in the here and now to the always there ever ready Kingdom of God through the Christ of the cross.
 
You see God has spoken by saying His son. (Hebrews 1.2) He is not still speaking. It is this spoken word that “is alive and powerful”. We ingest it spiritually and it, He lives in us. “For all flesh is as grass but the word of the Lord endures forever, in every generation. This is the gospel of truth, the gospel for the transformation of the soul. As new born babes desire the pure milk of the word that you may grow. 1 Peter 1.2-2.3.
 
A second coming Jesus gospel message of another battle speaking Jesus offers no new solution over saton sin and death that the cross hasn’t already provided. That message is an unnecessary redundancy. Re-read your scriptures and see. Jesus Christ is not coming back again to do what He already did as if His first doing did not work. As if He must come back and repeat Himself. For “God has spoken” and “the word of the Lord endureth forever” and “the word has gone out to the ends of the earth” “God has spoken”. . For then He would have to die often to defeat saton sin and death. But He appeared once at this end of days to put away sin by sacrificing Himself. He now appears a 2nd time apart from sin for salvation to those who are watching. (Heb 9.28)
 
But this too is not a second coming Jesus who does this at an event on planet earth but a gift of the cross made known by revelation through the gospel. It is realized through the word already spoken for “God has spoken” and need not repeat Himself. 1st Peter 1.9 “receiving the end of your faith the salvation of your souls. When? At a second coming planetary event? No, through the gospel that is alive and powerful now at work in those of faith for transformation, “the power of God unto salvation” (Rom 1.17) The gospel is from faith to faith, the whole package in the Word that was spoke, contains all we ever need including the Glory. “God has spoken by His Son”
 
Glory
 
 
Heb 1.+ God has in these last days spoken through His Son, of whom He said “sit at my right hand till I make your enemies your footstool. 1.13. He is not coming to speak or fight another day as if He needs to finish something for He said “it is done” at the cross. 1 Cor 10.4 for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God” as we appropriate the living word of the gospel of truth in our lives, the gospel found on the pages of scripture lives.
He has overcome the world with all the obstacles that detain us from reaching Him. It is this word that has been spoken, that the gospel re-iterates throughout the ages, this word that takes form on the pages of scripture, to be ingested by our spirit to renew our very mind to receive His Glory. To be partakers of His Glory through the gospel already spoken. This is the inheritance of the saints in the light. The glory is not a product of a 2nd coming but the word of God already spoken and proved by the cross.
 
2 Cor 4.6 we see the Glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ
2 Cor 4.17 His work in us produces His Glory in us
2 Cor 3.18 as we see His Glory, we become that Glory
Eph 1.17 God is the Father of Glory, this is what He begets.
Eph 1.17 we are to know our inheritance, His Glory gifted to us through the gospel already spoken.
Heb 2.10 it was fitting for Jesus to bring many sons to Glory”, Gods Glory
And this Glory is actuated by faith in the renewed mind of the Spirit. It may be put on full display for all who ever lived to see in the manifestation of the sons of God when we are revealed with Him, but the Glory is as much a gift of salvation as being seated with Him in the heavens. It is part and parcel of the gospel message, the word spoken, the power of God unto salvation. The gospel is not a mid point as though we are held back to resume at a second coming. The gift is the full package unto Glory, Who has blessed us with every spiritual gift in Christ Jesus. Eph 1.3. Including the Glory
The word has gone out. And with the words of God who cannot lie and He does not repeat. These words bring His very genetic code, His very D.N.A. it is His word in us, that we are known by God, that we seek not a 2nd coming Jesus who is subjected to the weak and beggarly elements of this creation (Gal 4.9)
It is His work in us now that is our transformation as we adopt these truths from scripture that we are proved His offspring by His Glory “in that we bear much fruit He is Glorified in us and the fruit we bear remains This is for us if we really seek Him who is above and seated, for this Jesus spoke these words not to have to be repeated by His mouth but by the gospel, and brought to you not by a second coming work but the word already spoken and believed at assorted times by various people through out the age in their time of visitation. Is this yours?
It is here Jesus defines His gift as His Glory;
John 17 3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. 4 I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.
 
And 
 
John 17 20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will (me and you) believe in Me through their word (reiterated);21 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 the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

This is the gospel message that all believers are called to partake of in the here and now. Any other objective of the gospel but for your spiritual maturity and aspiring your full potential of experiencing the Glory of God in the here and now being in complete union with the Father and His son, is a distraction. Any message or gospel that stops short or detains you from the shared Glory of God and puts this off for a second coming is anti-Christ for it is against the purpose of the death of Christ to raise and ascend to the Father to show us the way. He is the way the truth and life now. This is the true gospel. Jesus came in the flesh not to do so again. So is He the coming one? Or do we seek another?

New creation part 6 All Things

1 Corinthians 1.30 Christ has become for us wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. 

 
Many see these things as separate, to be acquired individually. But they are part and parcel of the greater picture of the gift of God for us “in Christ” Jesus. He has become for us ascended seated in full glory too for all things have their fulfillment “In Him”. The gift of God is one. It is however described as many different things but it is one. God is Echad (Deu 6.4). You cannot divide the gift of God into portions. You have it or you don’t. And if you have the gift of God in Christ Jesus, you have him in His entirety, and you do.
 
You cannot be saved to later become righteous or vise versa. You cannot be redeemed and not be risen. You cannot be seated in the heavens and not be Glorified “for “In Him” dwells the fullness of the God-head body, and you are complete “in Him” who the head of all principalities and powers”. Everything He has is yours, if you are His.
 
Eph 4.4+ there is one body (Christ) one spirit, one faith, and one baptism. When we are baptized, we are baptized “into Christ”. Into His death and resurrection and seated in Glory. He is seated in Glory and we are “in Him”. This is the body of Christ. And we are to grow up “into Him” who is the Head. This is putting on Christ. We do not wait for our own carnal experience for that cannot be. Flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom, but faith does. Your invisible response to the gospel to believe is rewarded this.
 
The reason the gospel uses the assorted terms is for our understanding. That through understanding we may grow up “into Him” who is the head. To understand the same thing from different perspectives. Love is patient, love is kind. Take away patience or kindness and it is not love but God is all these. Love is an attribute of God. Patience and kindness are characteristics of love. They are all the same thing. They are part and parcel. So too with the gift of eternal life. It is not sub dividable or it is not eternal life. It would need to be completed and be disqualified from being eternal for it has not yet become complete. But He is the same yesterday today and forever. 
 
So too with the gift of God. It is complete in perfection and holiness, seated in Glory with the Father. We see Jesus there, we learn to see ourselves there. Not because we are righteous but because He is. Not because we are holy but He is. Not because our body is resurrected but His is and we are “In Him’ this is true. If we are any of these several things on our own it diminishes the gift and Gods glory. His gift is complete so we are complete.
All of our righteousness is as filthy rags but the Glorious aspect is all our shame has trade in value. And this we left at the cross. We lay down ourselves and get Him. This is rags to riches. “He has become for us wisdom for we have the mind of Christ. He becomes righteousness because He gave us His. And it is the Father who sees Him in us that He is pleased with. We are complete “In Him”. We see Him there, we see Him as He is, and we become like Him. 
 
Well until you look in the mirror in the bathroom. But this is not where you put Christ on at. It is as we see Him in His word by the light of the Holy Spirit that we see Him and put Him on. Yes all His several attributes are ours. The package is un-dividable. We see His death, we accept His death and are baptised. We continue and see His resurrection, His ascension, Him being seated in Glory. He has become for us sanctification, holiness and love. He has become all things for us. He has gifted Himself to us in His entirety. He is only chopped up into words for our understanding, for Him to be reassembled in us as our mind is renewed. This is our transformation. This is the old things have passed away and ALL THINGS become new. Our old has trade in value. 
 
The “all things” that are new are really just one thing seen from many different views and angles for descriptive purposes only but they are totally one and un-dividable. “For all the promises of God are yes and amen in Him who is the head of the body. One baptism, one spirit, one body. The body of Christ that supersedes us.
They need to be received by faith in your understanding. They are not gifts of a second coming. “All things are now ready” (Mt 22.34) And “all things are new” and “ye are complete In Him”. If this were not true Paul could not have said “Old things have passed away, all things become new”. It is the ALL THINGS that define the One
He who spared not His only Son but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not also freely give us ALL THINGS? Romans 8.32

New Creation part 5 Heavenly Jerusalem

The carnal man interprets Gods words into time and events to come into being for the carnal senses. Something that is not yet but will be. They call this prophesy. But prophesy is just the speaking forth what already is and always will be that is to be revealed, or unveiled. We are instructed by scripture to look to the invisible. Not the future. 2 Corinthians 4.18

 
It is like a pioneer who travels lands for new discoveries. There are many who have traveled to name new lands mountains and species for each new discovery they find. But what they discover did not just come into being the moment they found it. Other peoples had names for these things according to their culture. But a new people forage through the land and come across something they have not seen before and call it new. It was only new for them. It became new because they just found it, but it had already been there.
 
This is the way it works with what we call the new creation in scripture. It is what was there from the beginning (1 John 1.1+). So it is not new in the sense of just now come into existence for God is not that. It is that you just discovered it.
 
Even like today some talk of having a new house or a new car, but somebody had it before them. This is the way it is with things of God. We don’t wait to possess them later but to discover. We don’t wait to be with Him later as though He is not yet for He said He would never leave us. He is like a vast land with innumerable treasures for you to discover about Him for the first time as you sojourn with Him in the here and now. This too is the Kingdom of God.
 
Think about with Columbus giving his first account of the new land. It was old for the Indians. Or some of the early travelers coming back with news about a new culture and a new tribe or city they discovered. It was only new for them because they had just experienced it for the first time.
 
This is the way it is with the “New Jerusalem come down out of Heaven from God” (Revelation 21.10). It is not new in the sense of it just being made or Jesus would not have said to the Samaritan lady at the well “the time that is coming now is when you will no longer worship the Father on this mountain or in Jerusalem (on Earth), for the Father is spirit and seeks such to worship Him in spirit and truth”. The city that comes down out of heaven is spirit and truth.
 
And this is the new city in the new land, the promise land “In Christ” where the promises have their fulfillment. Which is the reason why in all the new testament there are no references to the land as though it is future for in Christ is the fulfillment of all things. Not Jesus the man but His invisible eternal self. Not in time and matter but spirit and truth. All things are In Christ and all the promises of God are yes and amen In Him. 2 Corinthians 1.20. They are actuated In Him.
 
So if you are looking forward to an event in the future to see the Kingdom of God having the New Jerusalem with buildings and a temple with the Holy of Holy’s on earth you are seeking something that will not be, and missing out on what already is because it is not of this age of this creation “For Christ entered not the Holy place made with hands, but into heaven itself now” And as long as this place on earth to come into being exists in your mind you are closed off to the heavenly one (Hebrews 9.8) to a greater more perfect temple not made with hands, that is not of this creation (Hebrews 9.1+24) The one at hand.
This is why the final unveiling in the Book of the “Revelation of Jesus Christ” is “Heavenly Jerusalem come down from God”. Maybe the book should have been called “The Revelation of Heavenly Jerusalem”. But then you would not understand that she too is “In Christ”. She is spirit and truth and not of time and matter at all.
However amazing it is that she is listed as the last revelation may be, Paul the apostle knew Her, Heavenly Jerusalem as our origin saying; the Jerusalem above is the Mother of us all”. (Galatians 4.26)
So did John know her as the beginning or the end? Was his testimony of something yet future? Then why would he write this? 1st John 1.1 That which was from the beginning which we have heard which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon which our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life” And 2.7 I write no new commandment but the old one from the beginning”. Not a new reality as though it is not. It is just new to you at the beginning, at your beginning. And 2.24 Let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father”.
So He doesn’t point to a future event for our focus but that which already is. This is our discovery.
First John goes on to say 2.26 these things I have written to you about those trying to deceive you”. Yes they teach of another Jesus. A future one, like a second coming one and a second coming city, not that which is from the beginning. 
 
2 Corinthians 5.17 If anyone is In Christ they are a new creation. Old things pass away all things become new. And all (New) things are of God”. Yes in spirit immovable unshakable pre-existent truth. Hebrews 12.27 “Yet once more” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken as the things that are made (time and matter) so that the things which cannot be shaken may remain”. (the eternal). And this too is not a singular event in time but a process that happens to each one of us.
 
So each one of us in this journey for new discoveries should seek this city from God. (Colossians 3.1) Not as a construct of time and matter but “The Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” (Matthew 25.34)
 
The Kingdom of God is at hand.

Having bore the heat of the day I retire in peaceful repose in the garden anticipating the voice of the Lord like Adam had done before He was removed. Having been like Adam after his departure, stained by the sin of unbelief, for he disbelieved the Lord and followed another. But it is through Christ that I have been redeemed and restored to what Adam lost. It is not the Adamic or natural man that has access to the tree of life because there is a flaming sword spinning every way to guard it to keep the natural man from eating it, that is those in the likeness of Adam and Eve.

 
 
Having put off the Adamic nature and forfeited your association with the old nature that by faith being publicly displaying by baptism, we put on the new man who is created in true holiness and righteousness in the likeness of Jesus Christ. And it is this new nature that we are beyond sin and shame and have been restored to the Father. And it is the Christ of the cross who saved and redeemed for this purpose even as Paul pleaded for us to; be reconciled to the Father, for He made Him who knew no sin to become sin for us to be the righteousness of God in Him. And this was accomplished at the cross. And because of this you are no longer seen by God the Father (in the old) Adamic nature but (In Christ). If this is so for you, then you can eat of the tree of life. But not just any Jesus can do this for you.
 
2 Corinthians 3.18-4.7
 
2 Corinthians 4.7 For we have this treasure in earthen vessels. What treasure? The light of the Glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ, from verse 6. And it is only a glorified Christ that correctly portrays the Father. The future reign of a 2nd coming Jesus to wage war and save people from planet earth still has battles and enemies and cannot correctly portray the Father because He has yet to be victorious over His future enemies. But it is at the cross that He totally annihilates Satan sin and death. And He died once to put away sins. It further states the He defeated him who had power over death (Hebrews 2.14). Then He led free the captors and gave gifts to men (Eph 4.8) So you see He does not do this at a second coming as though He needs to do this again. That is blasphemous and spits in the face of the Christ of the cross who already did this.
 
Think of it like this. With any sport there is a champion. Through the various matches, games and playoffs they battle it out to see who gets the trophy or the title or the crown. It is after the last game has been played and the title is given that there is a victor, that there is a champion. They can now hoot and holler and pop the champagne and stand at the pinnacle and wave the trophy. This is their moment in glory. There is no victory or crown or glory as long as there is a game or a battle left to be won.
 
This is what it means that Christ is glorified. That He is victorious. That “it is finished”. He said “I have overcome the world” This is “the image of the Glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ the victor that now transforms all who believe in the glory to the glory which is the place of our calling and our reward through the gospel of the cross not a 2nd coming that cannot transform you now but later after that battle. To not see the glory of God in the face of a victorious Christ is to see another Jesus. A weak one, who is maybe taking a break to fight another day? This jesus has no trophy and with that view of the cross is a shameful act that couldn’t seal the deal. The Father would hang His head but instead He said “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased”.
 
 It is the god of this age that eschews mars and mimics a heavenly Victor by portraying a different one one in the age of time and matter by presenting a gospel of a future Jesus to save through assorted raptures and resurrections with fightings and battles to be victorious. And this appeases the carnal thinking. These people are taken captive to these assorted theories being unaware and unlearned in the invisible heavenly realities accomplished “In Christ:.
 
2 Corinthians 4.3-4 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe (in the glory), lest the light of the gospel of the Glory of Jesus Christ (the victor) should shine upon them”. And they are perishing because they are idle waiting for another jesus to transform them at a 2nd coming and not now through the gospel “from glory to glory”. The are blinded from the truth of the cross by another Jesus. But scripture says;
 
Luke 24.26 “Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things to enter His Glory?” And He did.
 
John 5.43 And the Jesus of the cross said “I have come in My Fathers Name and you do not receive me. If another comes in His name you will receive him.”  And it is this other coming one who comes in the name of the Father the 2nd coming seekers receive. This is the false jesus and the anti- christ if possible to deceive the elect.
The Fathers name in Hebrew is Yasha and means savior Strongs # 3467 is translated in the Greek/English Hossana. Hossana, save now, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. And He did. He came on the foal of a colt having salvation. The donkey is not coming back.
Now back to the tree  of life. The scripture says Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree” And Christ did. He  becomes the fruit of the tree of life having bore our sin and death for us to have life the moment we believe. And we continue to eat this fruit not for man, but for the new that are in the likeness of Jesus Christ. This is your new sustenance and your transformation

Our Foundation and our City

When the signers of the Constitution of The United States of America did so, they knew that they would not enjoy the freedoms they had laid down their lives for. They sacrificed their blood for their grand children and future generations. You may say that they are the very foundations on which we stand if you are an American

 
This is also true of the prophets and the apostles. They were set aside last for death as Paul said and; “We have become poor so you may become rich”. The signers of the constitution did not do so for us to continue to die but to enjoy the freedoms. And this is a picture of the glorious liberty of the sons of God. Meaning those who are “in Christ”. And this is speaking not of a future state of being but one of the spirit now. We have liberties and access, or better yet “keys to the kingdom”. This is a current reality, the Kingdom. 
 
Ephesians says that now “we are citizens and fellow members of the house hold of God having been built on the foundation of the apostles, Prophets. Jesus Christ is the cornerstone. So it is not as though we look up to that foundation as something that comes latter, but to walk on it now,  for it was laid for us to stand on it as a platform to live on. 
 
This is what is meant when Jesus said that “all the law and the prophets were until John. He who is least in the kingdom is greater than he”.  These men gave their lives for us to enjoy “the glorious liberties as children of God”. Peter describes us as “coming to Him as living stones, chosen by God and precious 
 
If you are “in Christ” you are in the kingdom as it states in Ephesians 2 and as we have just quoted, and from 1st Peter 2, then you are greater than the prophets and apostles in their physical state. Even as the book of Hebrews 12 talks about those who wandered the earth of whom the world was not worthy. You see 1 ounce of eternity is of grater value than the whole created realm of time and matter, EMC=square, big bang stuff. This all has an end and burns with a fiery heat, but eternity does not. So someone who is in the Kingdom is greater than all this.
 
This may be hard to accept if you are looking for an earthen city, or a place having physical features that you are used to seeing on earth. But Christ said many times that His Kingdom is not from here, not of this creation, not seen with eyes for this world. His Kingdom is as eternal and ubiquitous as He is. The Kingdom places and articles are features and characteristics of His very nature and make up. They were with Him in the beginning because it is Him. He comes and His reward is with Him because it is Him. He said “the Kingdom of God is at hand” because it is Him. And if we accept Him as He is now, as He appears now, as He comes now ubiquitous and invisible, He rewards us now. We are granted greater liberties into the Kingdom by the Holy Spirit.
 
2 Peter 1 talks about invisible attributes of God. That if we put these on, we put on godliness, meaning God-like-ness. In so doing we are “supplied an entrance abundantly into the Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”. And this does not speak of a future reward but a current reality of life in the Spirit of the living God. “To him who has, more will be given. To him who has not, even what he has will be taken”. Are you getting this?
This same place is described by John the revelator as the city that comes down from God in heaven, the true Jerusalem. Not a coming one to carnality but the one we awaken to as we seek the things above, above the foundation. All the works and words from the scriptures are to do just this. Take us to the Kingdom. 
 
What was pictured in and culminated at with Solomon in JeruShalome, putting the ark in the Holies of the house of  God, the general assembly having been gathered to and celebrated the feasts of trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles. All the places and articles and people were assembled as one. Then the people were sent their way having been to the grand finale. It was all over to start up again the next year. We have that. That was the gospel message.
They spoke of and walked out what we have in the spirit. They played out the very nature
and characteristics of the invisible God in whom we now dwell.
 
What they played out on earth was sown corruptible and raised incorruptible in our hearts, mind,and spirit so that we can worship Him in Spirit and truth. Where He is as He is. For “as He is, so are we in this world”. And “We have this treasure in earthen vessels” in the here and now! That which is perfect has come to the one who has faith. 
 
All the gifts and promises of God are as invisible and ubiquitous as He is. And the new you, the true you is just like Him for “we see Him as He is” if you can receive Him. We grow up in understanding to a perfect man, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, up into Him who is the head of the body, Jesus Christ. The same yesterday today and forever. The one who cannot become for He already was. And the Kingdom is with Him for it is Him.
 
The Kingdom of God is at hand. 

 

The Quickening, being made alive, and the rapture.

In 1st Corinthians 15 Paul defines The gospel from the cross of Jesus Christ. Paul qualifies himself as the 12 born in due time as one having seen the Lord, of which is the main qualification to have seen the Lord “to take part in this ministry” (Acts 2). Paul however did not witness the physical cross and Jesus with his eyes but that of a light that shown from heaven that blinded him. The eyes of his understanding. He saw the Lord as He truly is. 

 
Paul lays out the gospel saying “Now Christ is risen from the dead and has become the first fruits, for as “in Adam” all die, even so “In Christ” all live, but each one in their own order. First Christ, the first fruits than those at his coming, then comes the end when He delivers the Kingdom up to the Father.
 
The topic today is the “made alive”. From verse 22 “In Christ all live” or “all are quickened”. This comes from Strong’s # 2227 and used also in these verses.
 
John 5.21 As the Father raises the dead and quickens them, even so the Son quickens whomever He wants”.
Rom 4.17 God who quickens the dead and calls the things that don’t exist as though they do. (like the quickening)
Romans 8.10+ If Christ is in you the body is dead. And He who raised Christ from the dead quickens your mortal bodies by His spirit who now lives in you”.
2 Corinthians 3.6 the letter kills but the and spirit quickens.
 
These verses all define the “made alive” or the “quickening” not as a future event associated with a second coming but that which happens when you receive the Holy Spirit. That at one time we were like zombies but when the grace of God appears we receive that we are then quickened, we are made alive.
Now back to 1 Corinthians 15.22b “in Christ all are quickened in their own order” Have you not been quickened? Have you received Gods Holy Spirit? Rom 8 For as many as are led by the spirit of God, these are the children of God. How then is it the 2nd coming seeker gospel has taken the power out of the cross and assigned it to an event they call His 2nd coming?
Paul continues to develop this quickening and how a seed must be sown corruptible to be raised incorruptible. That the first man Adam became a human being, but the last Adam (Christ) is a life giving (quickening) spirit”.
Are we not born from Him? This is not talking about a future event on planet earth that happens to a select group of people who anticipate this quickening they define as a rapture followed by a tribulation. But “As many as are led by His spirit, these are the sons of God” having been quickened. Or are they are gonna be His offspring at a later event? I think not. It is “all are made alive in their own order, Christ, the first fruits, then those who are His when He appears (like Paul who was blinded by the light that appeared from heaven for his time had come. It was his own order) then the last enemy that is destroyed is death”
Has Christ not already done that? Didn’t He do that at the cross for you? Or does He have to do that again in the future when He comes on a white horsey? Blasphemy!
 
John 5.24 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. 25 Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.  How about you?
 
Do you now believe? Can you now receive?  If yes then lets sacrifice this modern sacred cow at the altar of the living God,  of the 2nd coming seekers that preach of a jesus who has yet to deliver (save) his people from planet earth. They say He must do so by a humanly visible rapture seen by the carnal eyes. But it does not because it is “in the twinkling of an eye” faster than humanly discernible we have already been quickened and made alive by the working of faith (the greater works we shall do of believing in Him) and we have been catapulted past death to life. And this is from “Him who calls things that are not as that do not exist (to the human eyes) as though they do (because they are). For our corruption does put on incorruptibility as we learn to put on the new man made in His likeness. This visible puts on the invisible. His very invisible attributes. This is true godliness, god-like-ness.
Do we not put off the old person and death at baptism? Are we not then raised with Him by the working of faith? Did you then see the spirit descend on you and make you alive new by the Holy Spirit? No! All that happened in the blink of an eye as do all works of the spirit.  They are all as invisible as He. “So when this corruptible puts on incorruptible it is then that corruption puts on in-corruption for death to be swallowed up in victory because of the cross and not of a 2nd coming. And it is at our baptism that we confess this publicly. “Each in their own order” Have you done that?
Do we each then deny this article and foundation of our faith and trade it for a mausoleum of a 2nd coming as though there is only a 1st and 2nd? And that the victory is later? 
Why is it the teachers today say Elijah must come? Jesus said; I tell you Elijah has come” And of the 2nd coming seekers not only believe Elijah must come but everything is later. That Jesus must come too. They reject Elijah and the Lord.  It is the spirit of Elijah even now that sacrifices the sacred cows of false prophets.  Is this your Elijah come? Can you throw that fodder of end time teachings into the fire?
If you are “in Christ”? Then the victory is now for you because of the cross, for it is not a 2nd coming gift. Are you not in His (resurrected) body? Part of the body of Christ? Or are you in a different body? A later to become lord at a later to become kingdom with a later to become victory? A different jesus.

 

Paul wraps up his discourse of this topic with these words in verse 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” This victory was the cross that defeated death and brought immortality to light through the gospel. This is the true gospel.

 

Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand!

Jesus sown corruptible Vision

The Christmas Jesus Vision

I was driving a vehicle like a golf cart. Along came this man who I would define as despicable having characteristics of every wicked person I have ever encountered. I knew this man to be evil but I also knew that I was divinely instructed to go with him against my will. I proceeded to drive backwards looking over my shoulder but then cooperating I turned the cart around to better see where I was going.. I then knew we were visiting the lower ranks in the spirit.

 
Having reached a building we entered into a very confusing place with many levels rooms hallways and doors. The halls reminded me of a hotel but upon looking in the rooms each wall was full of doors and I thought it strange because to me it was obvious that they didn’t go any where but into the same rooms they had already been. Kinda like a house of mirrors at a county fair but it was a place of doors. People were occupied with these doors and rooms without realizing that they were not going any where but where they had already been. That didn’t seem to bother them but I knew it was futile.
 
Another important observation was that this building  was cheaply made, it was rickety. It was under constructed and you could feel the floors sag as you walked. It was obviously of a 2 by 4 construction or less for even the walls shook when opening and closing doors.
 
I proceeded to go through some halls and twists and turns and down stairways. All along the condition of the people in this place got worse and worse. I knew we were going to the bottom of the building. 
 
Now going down the final staircase I remember stepping over people I would define as lifeless zombies. Alive but dead and limp. It was a basement and very dark and musty. All these people were waiting in line as if to enter a movie or a play or a staged event. They had all been waiting a long time. 
 
At the bottom of the steps the line continued and stopped at a desk that resembled a hotel check in counter that was dimly lit in front, but there was no one at the counter. There was however a young lady waiting at the front of the line in front of the counter, sitting holding her sick child and rocking back and forth crying. This seemed to be the main event for all eyes were on her and her child. They were expecting something from this mother and child.
 
They were there for them with great expectation. So I was compelled to pay closer attention to them. She was obviously acting and pretending but the child however, as I looked closer I noticed he had a mans face and he was not pretending. He was white as if he was sick and he rolled his eyes and rocked his head as if to say “get me out of here”. As I looked more intently at his body, the child clothes he had on just covered his upper half like a mask and his legs up to his waste were in the ground, in the dirt. As he rolled his eyes and squirmed you could see the ground move at his feet but he could not get up. He was held against his will and wanted nothing to do with this scam. He wanted up and out but the people were content to just watch and wait and rot in this cellar. Having recognizing this man held against his will and this lady pretending to be sad I blurted out “This is a big lie! This lady is an actor” Then the vision stopped.
 
I have thought back on this and the building that was full of people mused with the rooms and doors with the hope that just on the other side of the next door was what they were looking for.  They were all there for the play down stairs but were content with the distractions until the festivities commenced down stairs. They did not know they were like mice in a maze with no cheese but never the less they smiled in great pretense and stayed there in hope and expectation that at any moment for the time was imminent, that the clerk would show up at the counter downstairs and their hope would be full.
                                                                                      Implications of the Vision
I think that for most who recognize the stagnancy of the modern church and being inpatient with the continual weekend charades going in and out of the several doors in that rickety old place going over the same things week after week, but having no real power, that you can identify with this vision with the rooms and the doors and rumination of the same concepts over and over as you wait for a 2nd coming to bring you what you are looking for.
Your Jesus is held captive against his will. Being planted in the dirt He is sown corruptible and you will not allow him to rise incorruptible to His place in prominence. He is viewed as a cute baby Jesus. As a Christmas Jesus. Not just an ordinary man but even more insulting a baby. The very work and victory of the cross is lost and now redefined as the gifts to be provided for later at a second coming . Your Christ died in vain. You know a different Jesus then the one in scripture.
 
But it is the 2nd coming mindset that rejects the real Jesus. The kingdom is already but just not in your thinking. Christ is in full glory in His Kingdom, in His heavenly city, on His throne waiting for you to acknowledge the truth and except it. Put on the new thinking.
But you are content with a baby Jesus and a kingdom that is not yet that must come later after a tribulation and a rapture. You disregard the eternal value of the gift as being pre existent having been finished from the foundation of the world. You twist scripture to your own destruction and create an alternate reality for people to live in, or better yet a fable to be occupied with, of a soon coming king to rescue planet earth so you can all live happily ever after when Jesus comes back to planet earth to be a king in a future kingdom called Jerusalem. And you believe that at that time your salvation will be complete and then you will be a new creation then. I guess then all that Jesus secured for you at his 1st coming and the cross was an “I.O.U. a kingdom” coming later to be redeemed when the imminent charade commences.
 
 
Here is probably the most concise verse I can offer you right now. But the whole of scripture changes when the veil of darkness of a kingdom later dissolves from your thinking.
 

                               2 Corinthians 5:13-21New King James Version (NKJV)

13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; or if we are of sound mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

16 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, (a man or a baby) yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is (now) a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

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

 

I don’t know how someone could read this as something actuated at a 2nd coming for it is all past tense and actuated by the working of faith.

 

The fact is the first words out of the mouth of the man Jesus is still our starting point with Him “today!” if you will hear His voice. And that is? 

 

Repent! For the Kingdom of God is at hand. 

The Lords Supper 8/17

The Lords Supper

 
Matthew 26.26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.

 

Here we have at the Lord’s supper Him saying that He would not drink from it again until He drinks it new in the Kingdom. It is the bread and the wine that become new first. Simply put it is us who put off our old nature symbolized at baptism that become new to drink it with Him, for it is the bread and the wine of the new covenant which is in effect now that His blood has been shed. (Hebrews 9.15)

It is in this way that we drink it new. He nourishes the spirit not the man. It is our spirit that is new that allows us to drink it new in the Kingdom. His words are spirit and they are life and this is what we partake. This is the Lords Supper. It does not refer to a future coming kingdom that does not exist yet like those who suppose it to be at a 2nd coming of something yet to be fulfilled. It is filled full now. The Kingdom is preached and men are pressing their way into it. Luke 16.16

This is how we are filled now that we are new. We partake of His word and His spirit. It is not like meat on a BBQ to be cooked that you see but His holy word that is perceived so you can receive it by your new person. It is not His Kingdom that is being made new to have a grand opening at a second coming for it already is or Jesus could not have already said “The Kingdom of God is at hand”.

It is us eating this new in the spirit of our mind that makes it new. But it is the silly Adamic nature that postpones the spiritual nourishment until a 2nd coming for a coming Kingdom that does not exist yet waiting to be finished that it may be revealed. Yet the Kingdom never was  not yet as though it still needs to be but only in our minds, this is where He builds it. You see then to drink it new in the Kingdom is not for a future kingdom. The newness has to do with us. It is us who are changeable and are changing. God and His Kingdom are not. So when we come together to eat the Lords supper, it is to eat it new in the Kingdom.

1 Corinthians 5.7 Therefore purge out the old leaven that you may become a new loaf since in truth you are unleavened.

This “drinking it new in the Kingdom”, the eternal kingdom is not as though it must be something later is not already.  It is as eternal as He is for it is His home and cannot change. Or where would He be King until His kingdom is finished. You think He is subject to time as though He is ringing His hands in heaven just hoping for His kingdom to be built. Everything about Him is timeless, hence “enter the Kingdom prepared for you from (b4) the foundations of the world (ages). So it is us that becomes new not Him.

And how do we do this? By partaking of Him any day and every day. To us who “love His appearing” not as something future but daily and continual. We “eagerly await His appearing”. We look to the author and finisher of our faith”. Not of a 1st and 2nd coming but to Him who delays not His coming. We do not forsake the assembling and so much more as we see the coming day. Till the dawn of the old and morning star of the eternal day that needs not a jump start except in our thinking and understanding.

This is “the Kingdom that comes not with carnal observation” as the 2nd coming seekers are stuck on. It appears not to the eyes in your head but the eyes of your understanding (Eph 1.18) He appears to our perception and this way we are renewed, we recieve, we become what we receive. This is our spiritual growth. Not like food for the carnal man that nourishes the human but a new nutrition for the new man who is raised incorruptible. For He says “My words are spirit and they are life”. So if we believe His words, we ingest them, and we keep them. We become what we eat. We put this on. We put Him on. We put on Christ. This is putting on the new man. We perceive Him as He is and we become like Him. Today!

And we do this before a 2nd coming as is taught by others for if you do not do this now you will be found naked. If you have washed off the old man by baptism what is it that you wear now if you expect your new garments at a 2nd coming?

This is why the 2nd coming seeker churches are “poor blind and naked”. They think a 2nd coming is the fulfillment but now we can be filled full. Till we become a perfect man” (Eph 4.13?) They are poor because they reject the true riches of which we speak. They are blind because they do not see the “Kingdom of God” which is “at hand”. And they are obviously naked because they cannot put anything on they perceive to be later. In this they condemn themselves.

1 Tim 4 the spirit speaks expressly that in the later days men will depart from the faith giving head to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons.” And again “after my departure you will be devoured by savage wolves. They have and they did. We are that.

They think to “drink it new in the Kingdom” is when they see it with human eyes, and this scoffs at the faith that pleases God. It is anti-faith and anti-Christ to ignore Him who speaks from Heaven now as though He must come in bodily form to appease our carnality and stand where we can see Him to believe.

But it is He who even now says, He who has been saying. Him whom you ignore “Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door.” This is whom we ingest at the Lords Supper. “I will come into them and dine with them and them with Me.” This is drinking the fruit of the vine new in the Kingdom with Him. The new covenant is in full force, “the Kingdom is preached and men are pressing their way in” This is that which was from the beginning. Let that abide in you. Not a silly 2nd coming man you can see with the eyes in your head. What a powerless gospel with no transformation that leaves many disappointed and unchanged while they wait for something that is at their fingertips.

“For him who has ears to hear, hear what the spirit says to the churches” The words of this prophesy are not sealed for a 2nd coming. What I say to you I say to all watch. For if you do not watch, if you think I have delayed my coming, I will come upon you as a thief and take even that which you think you have. But to those who anticipate My coming, and love My appearing, I come quickly (unnoticeable to the carnal senses in the wink of an eye) and My reward is with me to give to each one according to their work. Blessed are they who do My commands for they have the right to the tree of life and enter through the gates into the City in the Kingdom. Yes, press into this. But outside are sorcerers, adulterers and whoever loves and keeps lies”

Where are you?

More on the Eternal Day

Download PDF
Hebrews 3.13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,
 
10.25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
The main theme of the book of Hebrews is the “Rest of God, the true Sabbath where He is” This is the gospel, this is the message “Today! if you will hear His voice” Which is the voice that calls even today saying “refuse not Him who speaks from heaven”. This day being the eternal day, not the days of time and matter, but the everlasting day for the everlasting God, the day before creation where He rests from His creation to which we are of the called, hearing His voice to be with Him where He is before He ever spoke a word, before all creation. This place which has no night where Christ is seated right now and if we are truly “In Him” we are there now “in spirit and truth”. That is if you can see it and receive it, saying; there remains a rest to the people of God, and we who have believed have entered that rest” the place of time before the time of matter. We who have believed is the act of faith being the conduit by which we have received it.
 
So it is of this day that is not related to time as we know but to a greater reality which has no beginning or end like Melchizedek. This place is a place even higher than angels saying “for He has not put the world to come of which we speak in subjection of angels. And this world to come in which we speak is not in subjection to time either saying “Today” as it goes out even in our day.
 
Now “this world to come in which we speak” is pictorialized and memorialized throughout the scriptures but never meant to be earthly. For if it was of the earth “Joshua would not have spoken of another day” It is the carnal man and immature believers that see this in a linear time line to be revealed at a 2nd coming, meaning not “Today”
 
This mindset of looking for another day called the 2nd coming is a faithless testimony and confession. All the gossip, hoopla and energy spent investing “another day” a later day to be actualized by the human senses, is really quite a faithless act. (Heb 4.6) Thereby judging themselves being unbelieving, they receive nothing. “Be it according to your faith” and if you believe it is later then it is not “Today” for you. You have judged yourself unworthy of the full gift of God which is “in His Son”. We walk in the light as He is in the light” He is the light and “IN HIM” there is no darkness or nights at all.
But you say the Son will come later, but it is He who is coming now. As it was said back then so too in our time “There are some standing here today who will not taste death till they see the Son of man coming in His Kingdom with great power and Glory” and they did. So “Today” enter this. And He is coming not as a man, but in His true personage being eternal and invisible. It is the carnal mind hooked up to the senses of the flesh who are dead to Him who whisks about them beckoning them to “wake up”.
 
So cast off your ignorance and unbelief. Throw away the foolish notion that you cannot have Him now in His full Glory, that He must come again a 2nd time to do another work to the flesh to give you something you don’t have.
His visitations are many. Not just a 1st and 2nd coming.
 
It is He who stands at the door and knocks who always wants to sup with you, with your spirit for His words are spirit and they are life. Do not be like the evil servant who said “my Lord delays His coming” for He does not. It is you who get caught up in this life too much to enjoy Him who knocks, who is always coming. As He says “come to Me and I will give you rest” is “the world to come of which we speak” and is always coming.
Or would you rather gather with those of  a 2nd coming mindset and live in uncertainty and confusion? I mean really, who’s message do you think that is anyway?
 
From Hebrews 3.13 says we are exhorted to encourage each other while it is called “Today”. It does not say to exhort about another day like a tomorrow or like a 2nd coming. And Hebrews 10.25 furthers this concept saying to “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves as we see the day approaching” is not about a 2nd coming concept that is not said anywhere in scripture that it is a 1st and 2nd. The whole book of Hebrews speaks of the eternal day that was before time and matter as the place of our calling. 
 
The term from Hebrews 10.25 “so much more as you see the day approaching” is correctly rendered from the Greek as “see the day at hand” meaning at His fingertips. To give to you if you will receive it by faith. This is the same verbiage as “the Kingdom of God is at hand” And the place from 2 Peter 3.18 rendered  correctly in the Greek “To Him be the Glory both now and the eternal day” Again not a 2nd coming day as though it is not yet.
And again in Revelation “seal not the words of this book for the time is at hand” to enter now. What is not clear in your mind is settled in heaven. It is becoming in your mind not on earth. The things that are at hand are not the judgments and woe’s for those repeat themselves like with Antiochus Epiphanies and such. It is the revelation, the unveiling that is at hand. History repeats its self. Get your mind off things of the earth and seek that which is in heaven. In “that day” “Today!” the “eternal day” the time “at hand” the “coming day” that cometh not with (carnal) observation Luke 17.22. The kingdom finished from the foundation of the world, before God ever spoke a word. Settled in heaven.
 
Hebrews 4.3 We who have believed have entered. The Kingdom of God is at hand.
