Manifest Sons of God Pt 1

Isaiah 8:17 “here am I in the sons whom God has given me, we are for signs and wonders”
   Here is a glimpse of what Isaiah saw, glorified Sons, replicates of the father. To those who have become a “perfect man to the full stature and measure of the Son of God” in the here and now. This is the purpose of the Gospel. (Eph 4.13) This is true godliness and the reason for our journey here on earth. Did not the Word of God become flesh on earth? He came in the likeness of a man but was filled with the Spirit and Father? It was Paul said “let this mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus Who coming in the form of man thought it not robbery to be equal with God”. And so we are.
    You see man was made in the image and likeness of God to be crowned with glory and honor, to interact with God perfectly. This is the gift, for “of His fullness we have received “. And he is glorified when we are glorified for that is the purpose of the Gospel “bringing many sons to glory”.
  It is through the gospel that we receive God’s genetic code, His invisible-ness on our invisible soul, mind and Spirit. These are our invisible parts and God is invisible. So it is our invisible parts that interact with God perfectly. This is why John said “the world does not know us because it did not know Him”. Because they cannot see him who is invisible and so they can’t see the invisible side of us, being Gods invisible attributes seen in Christ that we have put on.  The part of us that “not a hair on your head shall be hurt”. And this is how it is fulfilled  that “he who receives you receives me,  and he who rejects you rejects Me”. This is the equality. Can you receive this?
  Paul was trying to convey this when he said “now that you’ve been known by God (like Adam knew Eve) why do you seek the weak and beggarly elements of the Earth.” And this knowing Gods word is His genetic information and transformation saying “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.  We are reformatted and fitted with the very genetic code of the Living, eternal God in this way. We become holy, invisible. This part of us is like God.
   Each human being  has the ability to house not the external heavens  of the moon and stars  but to perfectly accommodate  the expanse of the Holy Spirit of the Living God, which is much greater than the heavens that can only “declare His handiwork”, but the heavens are not able to contain him or represent Him. Just point to Him.
   The heavens are just like the screen in a movie theater  showing the evidence of God  receiving light and images but not the very images they represent. The projector is God. It is the wisdom of this age that is foolishness with God. Did He not give the heavens to the Gentiles for “times and seasons?” That expanse is theirs. But ours is the expanse of the mind which is eternally greater than all creation. 
 As we adopt His word we are modified, not just for the capacity to interact with God but to be coequal with God. Does not scripture say that our bodies are the temples for the Living God?  Doesn’t scripture say “whoever keeps my word, we will come and make our home in you”? So we too can learn of His reality and say like a son  “I and the Father are one”
That is right. It is for the Father to be freely at home to cohabitate with us and in us. “For the Father is spirit and truth and seeketh such”. Our new members are these truths we talk about. This is our body, His body. With His dead body we arise. Come let us go up from here.
 Christ said “He who has seen me has seen the Father. He has interactions with us as co-equals being joint heirs in Christ . So much so in fact that we become a chip off the old block. As the man Jesus portrayed that he was made in the likeness of God taking on the form of man He was co-equal with God “for in him dwells all of the fullness of the God head body”, and “we are complete in him who is the head of all power and principality”.
So we too being in carnal form think it not robbery to be equal with God saying “let this mind be in you” and so we do. This is the gift no man can earn.
 Any father is most honored when his son can do what He does. Did not the Christ say “Greater Works shall you do for I go to the father?” Not that we do greater than God but the man Jesus.  And “the father is glorified when you bear much fruit”. And “the fruit that you bear will remain”. This is the upward calling of God in Christ. 
  The writer of Hebrews spoke of the spirits of just men made perfect saying “you have not come to a mountain that can be burned that as much as even a man or beast touch will die, but you have come to the Heavenly City to the Heavenly Jerusalem to an innumerable company of angels to the spirits of men just made perfect”. And it is the spirits of just men made perfect” who are not only carnal men but experience to perfection the spirit that equals eye to eye contact with the father.
In the beginning Adam had equality with the father in full fellowship. This is what he fell away from and this is what the gospel restores us to “for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” because that is the fall of Man and the departure of man from glory and equality. What man lost was the very nature and glory of God himself. We no longer fall short of the glory if you follow Christ who asked the Father “that where I am they may be also”. That word is fulfilled in us,  the elect.
That is why the redemptive value of each man is God himself. That God himself paid for the redemption the restoration and the conclusion of the Gospel all through the man Christ Jesus at the cross, scripture saying “God was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world to Himself and has committed to us this message of reconciliation”. Understanding this we can understand that there is no future payment no future battle no future work of God for he is “seated waiting for his enemies to become his footstool”. A 2nd coming is not the revelation of Christ.  The scriptures are.
 And we do this through the gospel. This is done as we are refitted and reformatted with the genetic information passed on to us in the gospel. For us to be reconstructed through knowledge to experience the glory of God at the moment of our understanding, at the moment we become transformed. As scripture says “we have been given everything that pertains to life and Godliness according to the knowledge of Him who calls us to glory by virtue”.
    Mentally we are capable of doing this and just as it is an insult for one strong man to see a weak man in false humility begging defiling the very image that he is by becoming subservient to elements and matter. Were we not made to have dominion? Were we not made in the image of God? In the likeness of God?  So the false humility of the religious pendants of the day are an insult to the gift of God. For the gift of God is himself as He displayed in his Son that when we see Christ, his reward is with Him because it is Him. Nothing more nothing less, but what more could you want. All things have been reconciled through the cross.
 So those religious leaders who keep you confessing in false humility at the base of the cross, keep you in your fallen nature looking at the fallen things that cannot help you. It is an insult to the Living God and the work of the Gospel for these men to behave in such a manner and for them to expect you to do that. The bludgeoning of the body and the false humility is of no sacrifice that is Honorable to the Living God. Get up like a man. Arise in understanding and awaken from your Adamic slumber.
It was in the beginning that mankind was made for dominion. And as soon as he started working with his hands, he fell from having Dominion because it was in this way that men now serve the creation that was supposed to serve him saying “go forth and have dominion”. Rule and reign. This is the way that creation itself groans because it to is not functioning as designed by letting you serve is it, in our mind and our spirit. That we are of “love power and a sound mind”. For “we have the mind of Christ” and the will of the Father.  We have no instability in us at all for we walk in the light as he is in the light if we walk in darkness at all”. If we walk in darkness, fear and uncertainty we lie and do not do the truth”. And those who walk in the false humility walk in a false understanding disrespecting the gift of God. It is “to as many as received him to them he gave the power to become his children even to those who believe in his name.” And when we say to those who believe in his name we are not talking about the pronunciation or a spelling for he is the one portrayed in Revelation on the White Horse who no man can pronounce or say who’s garment  is dipped in Blood and whose name is the word of God because his name is so much greater than any pronunciation or any spelling. His name is the culmination of all revelation.
    When you can truly understand who the Son is you can use any name or spelling that you want as long as the meaning in the heart is accurate. And those who know God in this way are the sons of God.
   So who was the angel that spoke to John the Revelator where for a moment John thought he was staring Christ in the face. He then bowed down to worship Him and the angel said to him “get up John why are you stooping to worship me?  I am one of your fellow brethren those of the Servants of God who keep the testimony of Jesus Christ.  It was John the Revelator who saw a glorified Son of God. And you know what?  There was no Second Coming involvement, there was no cataclysmic event, there was no rapture. And although all creation itself appeared to be silent the very heavens themselves with this principle and with these truths for the glory of God to appear to show us that this too can happen to those who are refitted and transformation by renewing their mind with this thinking to experience this very thing. And when we are called by the gospel to arise and to awaken to this very thing. Did not Paul the Apostle during his transformation saying that he “reaches out to lay hold of why Christ laid off hold of him?” Did he ask us to wait or enjoy the show until another Jesus comes? No! “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” for this is the purpose of the gospel and your sojourn ship here on Earth. For there Comes a time when those who are just she’ll be just those who are miserable will stay miserable. In the time of this era of Salvation will close and what you’ve become is what you will be. What Paul said of the Gospel “till  we all come to the fullness and stature of the son of God, to a perfect man”. To what Adam lost being “good, very good” before the fall. Can you hear this gospel? Can you receive it? And if I may borrow a phrase from Corinthians 15 “each one and their own order.” This is not about a collective event called a second coming that some suppose for “the kingdom of God is at hand” and the power of God has been given. Amen!
   Can you accept this call? Can you hear the voice that calls you from heaven? Do you hear the words now “come up hither”. Can you join John the Revelator who was in the Spirit on the Lords day while he was in his incarnation?  Then can you join the spirits of just men made perfect and see the angels before the Throne serving God.
    If you see a man falling down do you not reach out to help him? Can you see the hand of God? What was Leonardo’s portrait of?
Do not murmur and complain like those in the wilderness who were destroyed.  I see the glory of God. Do you? If you look at the earth and see if gloominess  and darkness,  shame on you. Not because I say so but because you deny the gospel. We join the man Christ and say “we speak of what we hear and testify to what we have seen.
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND

Our Perfection and the Priesthood

Download PDF

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

 

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

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

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

Download PDF

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND AND ACTIVE TODAY!

Jacobs Ladder 4 The Purpose of Paul

The purpose of Paul

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

Our Transfiguration

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

True reconciliation. To the beginning

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

Resurrection Defined

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

Define Carnal Christian

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

Jacobs Ladder 2 Colossians, The 2nd coming and Rapture

Download PDF
Continued from https://www.hiskingdomathand.com/2015/08/jacobs-ladder-steps-to-the-kingdom/
As we discussed in previous articles that in 1 Corinthians 15 Paul says that Christ must reign till He has put all things under His feet, but in Ephesians Paul learned by a new revelation that all things have been put under Christs feet for Christ to be “all in all”. His words are contradictory. Paul had not learned yet, he had not been renewed in the spirit of his mind yet to that revelation.(Ephesians 3.1-4) So for him “all things have been put under His feet” was not yet true. Meaning that Paul’s epistles differ according to each new revelation going up steps by degree like we do. We hear a thing by the spirit, we believe and confess. Then the word is tried in our mind “hath God really said” then we receive through faith and patience the thing that was said.
   This is how faith works and this is how we grow in the spirit as Paul did. That is why Paul and all the apostles are listed in Revelation as being the “foundation of the city”. We stand on their works, we climb up the ladder of the revelations they spelled out. Which is why we can say that “we are now fellow citizenes, saints and members of the house hold of God” That is “if you can learn to receive it”. Or… you can wait for another. But for us who believe? We receive an element given to us in Gods word and it becomes true for us so we too can truly say “the Kingdom of God is now” for ” we are fellow citizens and members of the house hold of God… If you can receive it?
Jacob had a revelation of the place of God when he saw the angels descending on a ladder and named the place Bethel. And Christ fulfilled that saying to one who confessed Jesus was the son of God. Christ said “from here on you will see the angels of God ascending and descending upon the son of man”, meaning Jesus the man with the Spirit of God. Jesus being the word of God, is the ladder of God. It is as we follow the Spirit through Word that we enter the Kingdom.
So now here are more contradictions from Paul saying in Colossians “giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. 13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, (notice there is no mention of a 2nd coming Kingdom)  in whom we have redemption through His blood”. It is here again that Paul shows a deviation from an early writings of a rapture or catching up. 
 
 
But there are many that do not believe that we have been translated into the Kingdom saying Christ must still come do this and they expect the Rapture or a personal death. They do not believe the verses we just quoted and expect a new physical body then but let’s look at what else Paul learned. 
 
 
Colossians 2 1 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins[c] of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised (resurrected) with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together (Resurrected) with Him,
 
Hmm. Here it says that our body is put off by the circumcision by Gods invisible hand and I assure you that it happened in the twinkling of an eye,  unnoticeable to human perceptions.  No where here does it go into a Rapture, a fleshly resurrection or a second coming Kingdom, for”flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom”, meaning bodily resurrection after death. Pauls mind was washed from that carnal interpretation of Gods word by revelation. “For all the law and the prophets were until John the Baptist, now the Kingdom is preached and all (who are able to recieve it) are pressing in”. Are you?
 
 
  Paul also says that we are resurrected the same way the body is put off “without hands” by the invisible work of God through faith which is your invisible embelical cord to the Invisible God that becomes a highway in the spirit. And this happens when? At a 2nd coming? No. The process starts at baptism and is culminated by the trying of the words in our heart by the leading of Holy Spirit in our lives of the words that are sown, being the things of “hath God really said” that we learn to believe.  These are the words in scripture, not mine.
 
From Colossians “you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, These too are the words in scripture.
But it is the 2nd coming gospel that tap dances around “putting off the old body and put on a new body. They reject “putting on the new man who is renewed in knowledge” by revelation. They wait for a bodily Rapture. They expect a body like Jesus the man but it was “the Word became flesh and dwelled among us”. A carnal composition is not who he naturally is. He was only flesh temporarily. He did this for us to be re imaged like the pre incarnate Christ saying “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” but he really is not eternally flesh, and he dwells among us even now in spirit and truth. Just as He was man and God, so are we… if we have His Spirit.
 Philipeans 2.5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God.
  And so we do.
    But for those who reject a new invisible body like Gods, the scripture is fulfilled that ‘they know his works but they know not his ways” His works may be seen in the physical but his ways are always invisible. It is of the physical works that they see and they think they know him, but the ways of the Spirit are always invisible in the twinkling of an eye.
     In this is “the carnal mind that’s enmity against God for it is not subject to the law of God neither can be” for they know his works because the words are visible but they know not his ways because it’s invisible that made the visible for all things are made by the word of God so that what appears is made out of what is invisible so when the man Jesus was flesh, it was a temporary fixture for the living God to show to humanity His invisible components. They knew his works but not His ways as He whisks about us even now. As Paul had said and acts 17 that he has appointed times and seasons so that we could hope and groap and try to find him for he is not far from any one of us” as though we need to wait two thousand years to see him for “it is in him we live and well and have our being”
    so he has given the guidelines and the parameters in which he must make manifest and we can accepted or rejected and we rejected when he expect them to become man again or we expect them to become an invisible to make us believe this is the carnal mind its enmity against God not subject to the laws of God because having eyes they see not ears they here not because it is with the heart that one needs to see and hear the things that are important to God this is the true uncircumcised heart and the truth Israel of
For the grace of God that bring salvation has appeared all teaching that denied ungodliness and worldly last we should love reaches over and just looking for the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior that we should live right to sober and just in this present day in age looking for the day in the glorious appearing of our great God and safe who has redeemed us from every lawless deed to purify for himself a people are you that people or do you seek another
Look for similar articles written by Paul that shows his progression to the true that is in Christ.
 
 

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

Download PDF

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.

Currency and Keys to the Kingdom

Download PDF

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

To be, or not to be. “In Christ” 9/14/14

Download PDF

To be in Christ is some what obscured. If we better understand what this means we can better know the gift of God given to us “In Christ” Jesus.

 
Let’s start with the name Jesus. Unlike how we think of names like John or Jane or what ever. Names for the most part have a certain ring without much association. Many parents may research name meanings to pick one but for the most part a name is not also used as a word. The name of our Lord is how ever different in that regard. His name has specific meaning. Like some cultures with the last name. Like Schumaker, or Smith  or Carpenter, the name is also a word and associates with the trade of that family. We will see that Jesus came in the name of the Father.
 
When Mary and Joseph were instructed to give a name it was for this very reason. He meant what the word, or name meant. There is a lot of ambiguity and confusion over this name partially because of how it has evolved over the years. We use the name “Jesus”. But if we dig into how this name was developed into the name Jesus we see that there is a lot just underneath the surface to understand. The name Jesus was properly interpretated “Joshua” in Hebrews 4. All other renderings in the Greek were translated “Jesus”. Both names Jesus and Joshua come from the Greek word #2424 and is directly referenced from Hebrew #3091 and means “Yeshua saved”. 
We can correctly understand more about His name as we study the name Joshua. The Hebrew concordance shows # 3091 broken down comes from #3068+7 meaning Jehovah, or Yehovah, which is commonly translated into “Lord” and # 3467 and in Hebrew pronounced “Yahsha”. It means “savior” to make safe, free, delivered and succor. So when people heard the name they understood that Joshua/Jesus was the savior, or deliverer by His name. Isn’t that the very role Joshua the successor of Moses pictured?
 
And here again. When the people cried out of Jesus saying “Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord”. They understood that Hosanna was this same name. As you trace it back from the Greek into Hebrew we see from Psalms 118.25 which is worded “Save now! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. Nah means now. So what you would have heard would’ve been Yasha now! (save now) Blessed is He who comes in the name of Yasha. The name and the phrase are completely inter-changible.
 
When people said “Jesus” they knew His name meant savior, the one who makes free, safe and succor. The deliverer and  redeemer.
 
So the one from God who comes in His name and saves. His name is what He does. When we say that we are “in Christ” we should understand it as they did that we are in the anointed of God who saves, frees, delivers, redeems and makes save and succor because we are “in Christ” and not because He must come back to do that later. If we think the Jesus Christ must come again to do that then we do not have faith in what His name means and I guess His name really doesn’t mean what the word means. So be it according to your faith. Is He or isn’t He what all the testimony says He is? 
 
So when John the baptist sent message to Jesus asking “are you the coming one, or do we seek another”. “Jesus denied not but said “go tell John what you see and hear. That the blind see and the lame walk”. All this accomplished immediately at His word. He demonstrated the gospel with “power unto salvation” which is to be with Him where He is in spirit and truth
Okay then His name means all those things. Now if we see that it means that in contrast to something then we get a bigger picture. God created the contrasts of light and dark and such for definition and the contrast of being “in Christ” is to not be “in Adam”. Here we have the old creature and the new creature. So when scripture says we are a new creature this is what it means. Just as all things are in Christ, it is the “all things” of the new creation. All things have their fulfillment “in Him”, in Jesus Christ. The first man Adam of the flesh with earthly possessions to return to dust and the new man Christ born of the spirit with heavenly possessions seated in the heavenlies. One creature with a sin nature and the new one “Righteous even as He is righteous. (1 John 5..)
 
So when scripture says that “He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies”. It is as it was pictured “in Joshua” They had to move forward into the promises and appropriate them by faith. We do this now that we have become a saint, meaning one whose identity is “In Christ” “If God said so, we are able”.
 
Didn’t we take on our new identity at baptism where we bury the old man by the working of faith to be raised new “In Christ”? That the Adamic nature has passed away and “all things become new” as we associate with Christ’s death and His resurrection?
This is what baptism means, and if we take our proclamation from baptism at faith value then we do not have to look to our physical body to die for our being risen “in Christ” to be our new reality. We died because He died. We are risen because He is risen, we are seated with Him because He is, and we are all that right now because “As He is so are we in the world”. So if we are “In Christ” We are where He is and we have forgone the need to personally experience death to be resurrected at some future point in time, for “He by the grace of God has tasted death for every man”.
So the price is paid. Even as Christ told His disciples ” As I said to the Jews that you cannot follow me, you too cannot follow me now, but you shall follow me after ward”. He spoke of His death and resurrection. We follow Him now. And this means to follow Him where He is as He prayed in John 17. This is W.W.J.D.? Not random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty, but “That where I am you may be also”. To “follow the Lamb wherever He goes”.
 
Here then we no longer identify with our old Adamic sinful nature by being “In Adam”, but we take His gift we identify as “In Christ” in His death and His resurrection now becoming our death and our resurrection gifted to us from the working of the cross and the life of Jesus Christ on earth. We proceed forward in this new life.
If Romans could be reduced to a main theme it is this which we speak. The new life in the spirit.
 
It is as if you are in a car race and you see a jalopy off the track, broke down headed the wrong direction with your name on it. You can go stand next to it in shame or go to the winners circle where the victory party has commenced. Are you in the old creation of the flesh? Or the new being “In Christ”? And from Joshua “choose you this day!”
 
So our first step was baptism which was also symbolized in the Passover. This is your cross over from death to life. Even as the Egyptians lost their first born, you became one of Gods. We do not follow Moses for their dead bodies died in the wilderness because they would not believe. They had not faith. But we do however resume our journey with Joshua/Jesus. Our promise land is His word full of promises. And if you are new “in Christ” and all things are new, then unlike Adam who walks the earth created for him by the first word, Christ being the Word of God, and we walk in the promises, this happens “in Christ in the heavenlies, and not “In Adam” on earth. Then after we are in the land of His word we journey to the heavenly city that was portrayed in the earthly city called Jerusalem. You see even as Joshua was instructed to lead the people into the land to give them their inheritance and He did so, he still spoke of another day symbolizing that what they did only mimicked the spirit but that there was also more.
The same way with Jerusalem. And this was the reason the Lord had them build up and inhabit Jerusalem, to be evicted some 30 plus times. From 1 Corinthians 13.– when that which is perfect has come that which is in part is done away with”. This is speaking about spiritual harvests into the ever ready Kingdom of God when He takes away the physical. Hebrews 8..”He takes away the first to establish the second. The physical has trae in value for the eternal. Gal 4 But after faith has come you are no longer under the law, and other teaching tools.
 
So if we can see all the Old Testament earthen pictures as spiritual realities to pursue and obtain, then we do not need a physical city anymore at all. They had the old pictures, but we have the prophetic word more sure. Their very accounts written down for our understanding sustain us in the here and now if we take them as heavenly manna and not being ignorant not knowing His word and power in the gospel actuated by faith.
The only thing that keeps us out of truly being “in Christ”is believing in false doctrines. There are many who trade the truth for “the lie if possible to deceive the elect” That Jesus must come again to save us as though He didn’t perform salvation right the first time. Salvation is not a down payment as though it’s a holding cell. “You are complete “in Him” who is the head of all power and principality” now if you are “In Christ”.
You cannot be “In Christ” and not be with Him. And if you are “In Him” and with Him who said “Lo I am with you always”. Who also said “I will never leave you or forsake you”, why then must He come a 2nd time to do something as though you do not have?  Pursue the matters in faith.
 

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.

Download PDF

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. 

To the intent that NOW! Eph 3.10

Download PDF

 To the intent that now the manifest, declared wisdom of God would be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavens. To make all of us see the dispensation of this mystery. Paul said these words then and it is as true for us today.

 
It is Christ’s body, the church that fills all and all now (1.20) It was by His death and resurrection that He was seated far above all powers in this age and every age for all eternity. And this is a reality not at a 2nd coming but by the work of the cross.
 
If we reject this fact and ascribe it to some 2nd coming where He will be seated and rule in all power, we are disconnected from the head that supplies the nutrients that make this truth your reality by the working of faith. So not only is He seated in all power, so are we because we are seated with Him and “In Him” All power and principality subject to us now. Not at a 2nd coming. This is the fellowship, the stewardship, the fullness and the mystery that Paul describes that is given to us now. All things being subject to us.
 
Because ” in the fullness of time God sent forth His son born of a women” to activate this reality by the working of faith. To be far above all powers being in Him, seated with Him, powers being subject to us.
 
We do not have to strategize how to fight those powers. (I beheld as Satan fell from heaven) Satans fall is more the truth that we have been seated far above him. Way above a battle. This is by the blood of Christ and not relegated to a 2nd coming. Satan loves it that some refuse the gift by not going up and wait for a 2nd coming. We do not wait to be seated at a 2nd coming of Jesus but sit down with Him now.
 
So we do not have to wring our hands or wrangle over an enemy for we have been delivered from this current age by faith. Even as 1st John says “You have overcome the wicked one”
 
So Satan is a topic of discussion and an obstacle for those who have not accepted the invitation to sit down with our Lord in the heavens by the working of faith.
“To the intent that NOW the manifest, declared wisdom of God would be made known by us believers. This is not a 2nd coming event but is gifted to us NOW. Eph 1.3 of Christ ” who has given us every spiritual blessing in Christ, in the heavens.
 
In the gospels Jesus said “destroy the temple and I will rebuild it in 3 days” was speaking of His body. And He meant more than a physical body dressed in a robe. We are His body, the fullness of Him who fills all and all, everything every where, heaven and earth. And He is the head we are nourished from.
 
It was at the cross He said “Eli, Eli, lama sabacthani”. Then the temple was then torn from top to bottom signifying that the all the levels in the temple were exposed and that we were granted access to the top. This was “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. To the intent that NOW!. But some look for this as a 2nd coming attraction for Jesus to come to earth and rule like a man as a king. But Hosanna came. “Blessed is He who came in the name of the Lord” All powers being made subject to Him, as He said “All things have been given to me from heaven and earth”.
 
The only reason He would have to come again like the 2nd coming seekers expect, would be to convince your carnal mind that it is so. But He does not convince unbelief with tangible facts for that violates faith. For why then would we need faith to please Him?
 
 
He has come and taken away the partition walls that kept us out of the Kingdom by the works of the cross. Not a 2nd coming.
 
The law and the prophets were until John. Now the Kingdom is preached and all are pressing their way into it. The kingdom has come to earth as it is in heaven. This is the mystery that was hidden that Paul finally learned to understand and presented it in the book of Ephesians. The kingdom has come, Christ is the Kingdom come, He is the kingdom at hand. He is the head and we are the body. We are “In Him”. 
 
2nd coming seekers are like a headless body because they believe that they rule later. But I read scripture that says “to the intent that NOW! It was said of those who looked to the apostles and prophets that, greater is the one who is least in the kingdom” meaning greater than the prophets . Wen stand onthe accomplishments and the understanding of what they learned and brought forth for us. “Having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets”. We stand on their works and are greater.
 
The Kingdom of God is at hand

When that which is perfect has come, that which is in part is done away with

When that which is perfect has come, that which is in part is done away with. 1 Corinthians 13.10
 
 
Abraham was waiting for a city whose builder and maker, or fabrication and anatomy is God. This place of our inheritance being eternal is God. The gift of eternal life that we are receiving is not something being made as though it had not been. If it had once not been it could not be eternal.

 
The word talks about the buildings and structures  of Jerusalem. But the buildings and structures and Jerusalem had their invisible counterpart. Meaning that they teach of and represent eternal realities. Not that the buildings on earth had any other significance then to build the kingdom within you. God establishes those realities in you.
 
This is why Jesus is the way, and that He came preaching “The Kingdom of God is at hand” or at your finger tips. He is speaking of His anatomy. Not a thing to be made, but something He is. It is “In Him”. This is why the Jewish leaders were befuddled when He said “destroy this temple and I will rebuild it in 3 days. He is the temple, He is the city and He is the Holy Land.
 
This too then is our rebuilding. We walk in His promises. This is the Promised land. This is why there is no mention of a promised land in the new testament as though that is outstanding to be fulfilled for “all the promises of God are yes and amen in Christ”. If you are “In Christ” then you are in the place where the promises are fulfilled. They are in Him, they are Him.
 
All the Old Testament tools of teaching, be it the Sabbath, the Land, the city or a feast, these are all for our instruction and understanding of things invisible and eternal. “But when that which is perfect has come then that which is in part will be done away with. The end meaning of all those things are “in Christ” All the old testament teaching tools have a trade in value. Temporary for the eternal. This is a redemption and a cross over point is that in the renewed mind this is the new and living way, the new creation. This is the “when that which is perfect has come, that which is in part is done away with”
 
This takes place not as a single event called the 2nd coming, but by His assorted comings to us He presents Himself now by His word and He shows us how these things are fulfilled “in Christ” by His Holy Spirit. That which is in part that is done away with are things of the 6 days of creation. This is also called “the shaking” from Hebrews 12.27. That which can be shaken will be shaken so that the eternal remains. He is speaking and shaking even now.  
 
And this does not have to happen visibly but by faith. You do not see it with your eyes for “no man (of the Adamic nature) shall see God and live”. You must be born again of His composition of spirit not that of time and matter. You must be renewed, tried and transfigured. And again, this is not done at a singular event called a 2nd coming, but by a lifestyle of walking with Him.
 
If this transition takes place at a 2nd coming then many scriptural concepts are un-necessary and lost. How can you become holy? “Be ye Holy as I am Holy”. Peter quotes this as a continual occurring reality. The gospel of Jesus Christ is according to godliness, meaning god-like-ness. This is not a religious concept of piety and self righteousness. “Be ye holy as I am Holy” is become His Holiness, by faith. He has given us everything that pertains to life and god-like-ness.
 
Titus 2.11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation (which is not the 2nd coming) hath appeared to all men,

12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly (god-like), in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing(s) of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify (by the transformation of putting Him on) unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

15 These things speak, 
 
And this we do. We look to Him now and and He appears as He truly is now in His Glory and this is what we become. This is our transformation now. This is “the prophetic word more sure”. Put this on, put Him on. You cannot put Him on now if you are waiting to see Him at a 2nd coming. You are deprived of the truth of transformation and have traded it for something else. You have lost your reward. Are you not called “saints”? What do you think that means? Do you accept this? Do you receive this? This god-like-ness in this age? You mean it is later? Do you see what happens to your thinking? That means salvation is later and Christ died in vain to have to redeem you at a 2nd coming.
 
If we learn to receive this then this too becomes us. As He said “He who has seen me has seen the Father” Most don’t understand this. When people interact with us they see something they don’t understand. They see the invisible light and the truth that resides in each one of us, being Gods Holy Spirit. Some admire this, some are jealous and try to squelch this. This is sharing His persecution. On our part he is glorified.
 
This is not done by calling people to a 2nd coming for even Islam, and Buddhists and other religions believe in a coming Messiah and a renewed earth later. It is the gospel that brings salvation in the here and now that is an offence. The work from the cross is our point in faith, not His return. And we love His appearing but this appearing is continual, not a 2nd coming
 
We become holy now in this age and “we have this treasure in earthen vessels so the excellency and the power may be of God not ourselves for we do not preach ourselves but Christ crucified”. That is the power of transformation. Look to that for change.We are like a light on a hill that cannot be hid, a bushel of light under a bed.
 
Doesn’t Paul say that we are living epistles written not on stone but on the heart by the Holy Spirit? That we are read by all men? And if we reject our calling for holy living now, for god-like-ness now, and live for a hope only to be realized at a 2nd coming then we are of all men most pitiable. What a shame and what a sham, for the good news of Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation “Today” not tomorrow or 2000 years later. If we are not saved we have nothing. If we are saved then we have the redemption, the adoption, the justification, the reconciliation and the at-one-ment now. Today!
 
The price has been paid and the only thing that stands in your way is that you want to have a visible confirmation of these truths. So you lump together what you cannot receive by faith and say it is coming later at a 2nd coming and associate yourself with doubters of Gods Holy word. Hath God really said?
 
If we live only in the hope of a change at a 2nd coming we are of most men to be pitied. What a shame. What a sham. For isn’t the gospel the power of God unto Salvation for today? Now? Or are we in limbo for a 2nd coming? 
 
This is where our cultural Christianity stops short of His fullness. We do become holy and grow in god-like-ness even now or why would the word say “As He is so are we in this world”? This is not just the same as the man Jesus was because Jesus said “Greater works shall you do for I go to the Father.” And if we can only be like the man Jesus who walked the earth we could not become greater. But as we see Him as He truly is through the gospel we become like Him. This is our mirror to put Him on. Him who is with the father is He who displays a greater reality of the Father. And this is Him in His transfigured, eternal state. This is what we behold. “Tell the disciples that I have ascended to My God and your God, to My Father and your Father. Cling to this. perceive this. Look upon this and become transfigured from the glory to the glory. (2 Corinthians 3.18)
 
It is enough for a student to become like his teacher and all students perfectly trained do so. So if we see Him as He truly is, it is enough to be like Him as He is. Not a man on earth but raised incorruptible. He is the last Adam who has become a life giving spirit. So too this becomes us. This becomes our greater works. “Good master what must I do to do the works of God? Believe in Him who was sent.” This one who was sent returned and it is there we behold Him, that we are seated with Him, “In Him”. And if we see Him any less we see Him in part. But when that which is perfect has come, that which is in part is done away. This is His gift to us. Eternal life and life is in the Son where He is with the Father. If it is any less then He has not given us of His fullness, but He has. John 1.16. Either He has or He hasn’t, black and white. The gray exists only in a wavering mind.
So do you want to do the greater works? Then believe in Him who was sent from where He came from and where He returned. It is He who calls us to Himself that we may “behold the glory given to Him from the foundations of the world”
There is not much transformation in a man named Jesus. And there is even less in a Jesus who must come back to work salvation. But there is all we need in Him who said it is done, and sat down to prove it.
