Paul. Resurrection by degree.

Download PDF
“To the degree you are able to receive”
 Paul said this to the Philippians that he presses on to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of him, that if I may by any means attain to the resurrection of the dead. Something end time seekers think is impossible.  To attain to the resurrection before his departure. That is what Paul strove for, and so should we. As he said “to as many as are mature have this mind”. And so we do. Anything short of this is a truncated gospel. For even the 12 tribes strove night and day in hopes to attain the resurrection too. (Acts 26.7) If you can learn to understand this then maybe you can see why Rehab laid the wood out in order in the attic where she hid the messengers.
    So it is the gospel that teaches us by degree we grow. We put Christ in in this way, including the resurrection. To the degree that we believe “let it be according to your faith”. And “to the degree” does not refer to a temperature like 80 or 90 degrees Fahrenheit but it still shows us that by increments, that as our faith grows and we walk in His light we apply new revelation to our conscience and our minds. This is our transformation and Transfiguration now. Paul said not that he has attained but he “reaches out to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of” him. Of which he said in the next chapter, that it was for equality to “let this mind be in you”. And it’s not just let it be in you but develop it by degree from one revelation to another, which is the unveiling, the pulling back of the curtain “for the eyes of your understanding to see” that we and all mankind were made in the beginning to show the likeness of God. From this we fell, to this we are restored. And it is through  the gospel “by degree” that we are fully restored.
   So when scripture says “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling ” it shows that salvation is not a once saved always saved and it is not a 2nd coming act from Christ.  Salvation is definitely not a down payment as you sit and wait for another coming of another Jesus at a Rapture for a future resurrection. That my friend is the Pharasitic belief that Paul was to graduate from through various degrees to find himself to have the same mind as Christ, who thought it not robbery to be equal with God.
  And when God made Adam in the beginning with him, there was equality. This is why scripture says that by salvation “we are joint heirs with Christ”.  And also “in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body, and “you are complete in Him who is the head over all powers and principalities” already so He need not come back to do so.
   It is by revelation of the word in the mind, and then the trial by fire in our lives that “brings us forth as gold” testing  the things of “hath God really said?” That we may be found of pure faith. This is what it means to be to a saint, and called to be holy. We are talking about putting on invisible attributes and not religiously Pious activity, behavior or attitude.
  Now when Christ was coming back down from his Transfiguration the disciples asked “why then do the scribes say Elijah must come first? And Jesus Christ answered them “Elijah has come if you’re able to receive it”. And it is in this way that Christ showed that if they were able to believe in to see and understand, they would move forward and receive the promise that was spoken “to the degree ye are able”. It is also said to “follow those who through faith and patience inherit the promises”?  Yes. This is the invisible attributes that we talk about. Think of it like “the coat of many colors” of Joseph for that is what the coat portrayed.
  You see Gods fulfilling of the promises are not dispensed by time as many think. They are not to be put on a calendar then wait for the event. It was the slothful steward who said; my lord delays his coming. Scripture says “you observe days, months, seasons and years. I am afraid that I have labored for you in vain.” And in this way 2nd coming end time fascinations hold you “in vain”. But for us, we see with the eye of our understanding and receive by faith, then trial by fire, and presto. You get the thing that was promised. Which is? Another aspect of the nature of God given to us. You get it, then you move on to the next attribute to be attained by degree. So “to the degree you are able”.
  This is proof that the gospel is progressive, and that Pauls messages map out for us his transfiguration for ours. “He who receives a righteous man receives a righteous mans reward,  he who receives a prophet receives a prophets reward” and he who is least in the kingdom is greater than these” and we say if you have been received into the Kingdom,  then you stand on the works of these men who are the foundation of the kingdom.  And maybe you can walk down from this high place with your own tidbit. This is our journey into the promise land, the land of faith.
And Paul’s main obstacle” “If I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
   So you can realize Elijah can come for you today. Elijah represents the spirit or teaching of Elijah, and a perspective of the messenger that takes you up by degree in the spirit of Elijah that in this way we can say to you “Paul must come first before the kingdom because you have to follow the spirit of His teachings to when Paul says “you are no longer strangers but fellow members and saints of the household of God. But Paul didn’t always see that. He used to believe in a future kingdom but he learned it in one of his consecutive revelations. Eph 3.3 “by revelation God  made known to me this mystery. “
 Elijah is said to  restore the sons to the father? That is what that spirit and teaching does. and has greater interpretation then generally understood. It is us, his offspring,  being restored to God the Father. Is not that the whole purpose of the gospel? “I plead with you therefore by the mercies of God that you be reconciled to the father” and with these words we say Amen.
 So we put on Christ, we walk in the things that he is showing us and given us and we go up by degree, pictorially speaking of ascending to the throne, or going up to Jerusalem “by degree”. And when Jesus Christ said “I and the father are one” He was showing for us that equality with the father is possible while we are incarnate, that Resurrection with him is possible while we are here on earth, that the Jewish belief of the future resurrection of the future time is at odds with those of us who are called to come up hither. So we do.
   So if you are able to receive these words then let it be according to your faith but even if not I’m sure God will show you that too.
It was Paul who was to deliver a gospel that would walk out for us a transition from a Pharasitical Resurrection and future Kingdom mindset to being resurrected with Christ and accept our new national status of being “fellow citizens in the Kingdom  and members of the house hold of God” now.
   Like Isaiah said “with His dead body our dead bodies will rise”? He bore our sins and “by his stripes we are healed” to what Adam Lost In the Garden of Eden. For those of us who believe? Some bear fruit, 10 fold some 20 and some 100-fold. It is in this way we grow by degrees and by increment to become more and more christ-like, more Godly more god-like.
The revelation of Jesus Christ is not at a one-time so-called public offering by a Second Coming but by a continual bathing in the Revelation through the word for He was the word that became flesh so that we in the flesh would become word. And the Word was with God and the Word was God”. We inherit all things in Christ. Everything that he has is ours including this mind that is equal with God. That is why Paul said “we go on to perfection, to a full stature and full measure of the son of God”. And it is because Paul had to transition from a physical resurrection and mindset to the correct resurrection and mindset. And he had to do this by degree. That he had to lay hold and teach to us as he showed us through his Epistles, the transitions. And this is why the more current or recent writings of Paul are more powerful and more clear and less Pharisaic then his first writings and preaching.
    So next we will talk about John the Apostle and show how his preaching is greater than any of Paul’s because Paul was to speak of things “yet to be revealed” and he chose to go up by degree, but John describes the full package. He talks about the overcomer and those who have overcome the world by faith and need not a second coming Jesus. In John the transition is complete therefore he has a greater message.
   It is here that we will conclude our messages of Paul and the resurrection
   The kingdom of God is at hand

Paul testified the resurrection of faith

Download PDF
Paul was set out to testify of the Gospel of the Resurrection. And if it was for a future Resurrection, that would be no new testimony at all because even the Pharisees believed there was a resurrection, a future one. The Sadducee’s and Pharisees argued about this. But the testimony from Paul was to come out of that Pharisaic testimony of a future resurrection of time and matter and be transformed from that one into the one that “cometh not with observation”.
  When Paul was speaking to the Roman ruler Agrippa being a believer. Paul said “why do you think it’s incredible that God raises the dead” because it was not incredible that God raises the dead, for the Resurrection was a believe they already had. What was incredible is that God raises the dead by the operation of faith. That a resurrection of the end times was a distraction. Having come out of that system he was to testify to a different resurrection. The Lord said to Saul/Paul at his conversion that he was “you will testify of what you have seen and the things I will yet reveal to you”.
   But it is the resurrection of faith we all confess at baptism that Paul was assigned to differentiate between the Pharisaic resurrection of a future last time event when the Lord said of these people “they will say look here and look there, but do not follow them”. It is  our profession and confession of faith that we are buried with Christ and then resurrected with him to walk in newness of life while we are in our human condition. “You shall be judged by every word that you speak”. Especially your public confessions, your baptism.
Heb 2 Therefor we must pay closer attention to what we have heard lest we slip, for if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received its just reward, what makes us think we shall escape judgement if we refuse such a great salvation. And it is a great salvation. Our sojournment is our departure.
   So it is the second coming seeker false prophets of today who have no shame in believing the same Pharisaical testimony that Paul was told by Christ to depart from, that Paul was to transform from. These second coming speakers who confess at baptism to the resurrection with the risen Lord, then hypocritical turn and talk about another resurrection of another raising of another savior with another saving and make themselves as much and enemy of Christ as Paul was as a Pharisee when the Lord said “why are you kicking against the goads? In this way Saul/Paul was the enemy. At his conversion He saw Christ as a great light brighter than any humanly seen light for Paul saw Him as He is. To accept Christ in His original form and not as a man for Paul did not describe the pierced side or the nail holes in the hands. A man was Christs temporary form that He transitioned from to show us the way.
 It was Paul who learned by revelations, meaning a multiple appearings of Christ for Paul to grow by degree to say “I have been crucified with Christ yet I live but not I its Christ that lives in me. And the life that I now live I live by faith in the Son of God who gave himself for me. If righteousness or the resurrection, comes any other way, the cross is unnecessary. Was He not raised? Then we are raised with Him if we are “in Christ “. If it comes any other way, then Christ died in vain. If Christ only confirmed a future resurrection He accomplished no new thing and we are still in our sins wallowing in our old nature.
So like we said, it was the religious order of that day that believed in a future resurrection that Paul came out of. They believe in the resurrection but a future one and that is what he was in error with and antagonized beleivers for. It was Christ who proved he was the resurrection and the new life with the raising of Lazarus before Christ showed His resurrection at the cross. He did not become the Resurrection, He was the ressurection.
Paul prayed “that the eyes of our understanding would be opened that we would know the exceeding greatness of his power that is in US that he displayed when God raised the man Jesus from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand. And that is what we ask you to do. Didn’t Paul say that of us in Ephesians 2? That we are seated in the heavenlies in Christ”? That “we would know the exceeding great power that is in us that he displayed when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him far above all power and principality in this age and the coming age”. And that is the point. In the coming age is the one that is even coming as we speak for it cometh not with (carnal) observation, being the eternal that overlaps us now. This includes “today if you can hear His voice”and every day, to accomplish the task for you to be seated in him. For this reason Paul said that we are seated with him in Heavenly places far above all powers and principalities being rulers over all things.
   This is the testimony that he had to conclude and to agree with to be qualified an apostle as one who saw the Lord. And He did, but not seeing the nail holes or the pierce in His side Paul saw the great light from heaven. And I pray that you do too. And we can see Christ as He is with the eyes of our understanding as the light brighter than humanly possible.
 We do this to testify of the Resurrection of faith too. Can you believe this? Well this is what we are asked to do. Believe something we cannot (carnally) see, but we can experience by faith. For “without faith it is impossible to please God. You must first believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of those who” wait for a 2nd coming?  No! We diligently seek him now and what he rewards you with are things from where he is. Eternal things, invisible things. If you cannot get past pleasing him by faith, if you cannot get past the obstacles that your eyes see and your ears hear, to believe the truth, you cannot have this. But he is a rewarder of those that can believe this by faith. And you are asked to follow those who through faith and patience inherit the promises” and so we do. Not promises of a dead piece of paper but of those who receive the thing that is said “if you are able to receive it” are you? “He comes and His reward is with Him” Why? Because He is the reward. Him and nothing else because everything belongs to Him.
So like Paul we speak of what we hear and testify to what we have seen, and what Paul heard and saw was a great light from heaven with the voice of the Lord. And the operative here is “being from heaven”. Scripture saying the light that shines seven times brighter than that of the Sun. Paul was speaking of another dimension. One that transcends the ability of the carnal senses of sight sound and smell. This is why later Paul prayed that the eyes of our understanding would be opened.  Yes! The eyes and ears of our understanding is our invisible part that interacts with the “eternal, immortal, invisible God. In this way the Kingdom of God is at hand. Why seek ye another?
The Kingdom of God is at hand.

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

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!

The Kingdom of God is at hand.

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

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.

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.
 
 

Redemption in 3 Stages

Download PDF

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

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

 

The Curse Reversed with creation

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

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

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

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

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

 

To purify as He is pure

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

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

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

Scriptural Stewardship Part 2 A Prophets Reward

Download PDF

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

Today! If you will hear His voice.

The Kingdom of God is at hand.

Amen.

Scriptural Stewardship part 1 Joseph

Download PDF

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

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

2nd Coming Knock Knock

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

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

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

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

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

Currency and Keys to the Kingdom

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

Antichrist and the Last Time Deception

Antichrist and the Last time Deception in 1st John

1 John 2.18 Little children, it is the last time; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many anti-christs have come, by which we know that it is the last time. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. 

 

1 John 4.1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that[a] Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. 

 

 

The writer John here talks about some who were among them, who would leave them and teach other things. John was safe guarding the believers from these anti-christs who went out from them. It is easy for us to think that John was talking about other beliefs and other religions when thinking about this anti-christ spirit that was then and expected to grow. But it was from among them that the falsehood would come. They use the scriptures.

 

As part of his safe guard John coined some  phrases, and these phrases are relevant to the message about those trying to deceive them and you. And if they were aware that this falsehood was coming they needed to certainly be aware that it already was. If it was small then to get bigger, what is it today? 

 

Well let’s unlock that by associating it with Johns newly termed phrases.  Two of them are related to time. “that which was from the beginning” and “the last time”  which  means “end times”.  These terms were for our safe guarding as well as a 3rd term “anti-christs” being those who “went out who manifest a new spirit or teaching that violated the truth that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh. Those who deny  this, who came out from them, believe something different but similar enough to deceive. 

 

If it was not similar it would be no threat but this threat that now 2000 years later has become the threat of all threats to violate the faith once and for all delivered to the saints.

 

This threat ignores the true message “from the beginning” and teaches another “last time” or end times, for John to have to clarify “last time”. That message that is anti-christ that came out of them that is a counterfeit to the truth that obscures that which is from the beginning. Their new gospel message obscures “Him who has come in the flesh” who brought salvation. They teach another end time and another coming one to save.

 

That is right. The message preached from end timers speak of another Jesus to come again on the world scene to save His people and bring salvation to planet earth. Yes. another Jesus to appear on the human stage.

 

Johns point in us needing to believe that Jesus the Son of God has come, is that what end time seekers expect Jesus to do at a 2nd coming, is what He already did. We already have what they expect to get. We have overcome the world.

 

Look what John said about this.. 1 John 5.4 “and what is the victory that overcomes the world? Even our faith!” Now this discredits a 2nd coming Jesus to overcome the world, for it is not an end time or another day event. And these anti-christs are those who teach another end time with another Jesus for delivering us from this world. They call it end times and a 2nd coming Jesus.

 

This is scary stuff if you are mixed up in it. Is it the message of the 2nd coming? Or that which is from the beginning” that John teaches and affirms? John felt it important enough to address this by letter. Is it the message of the cross? Or a tribulation a rapture and a future resurrection that overcomes the world and saves you? So when Jesus came to save, deliver and redeem, did He do that then? Or just give you a promissory note?

 

Is He King of Kings now or must He become that at a 2nd coming? Is He in full Glory now or must He come here to claim a victory later? Did He defeat satan sin and death or does He do that later? If you are not sure I am afraid for you for you know Him not.

 

Jesus said in John 12.31 “Now is the judgment of this world! Now the ruler of this world is cast out!” Was this a prophesy of a future event? I think not if you have faith in the one who said it “from the beginning” for He cannot lie. Every word He ever spoke was accomplished the moment He said it as evidenced by Him speaking forth creation. He who said “Let there be light”? He said “arise and walk”.

 

Another end time teaching of another deliverer to save you keeps you from the gift of God that is “In Christ” now. You cannot receive this reward because you are closed off thinking it is later. You have faith in a fairy tale of fallen fairies. You shouldn’t just ponder this message but you should flee. I mean if John equates another last time, end times with “anti-christ”? It is anti-christ because it rejects the truth that he has saved, delivered, redeemed, and atoned. He put away transgression, made reconciliation for inequity, He brought us everlasting righteousness, He sealed up vision and prophesy and was anointed Most Holy as Jesus said “Now the Son of man is Glorified. And if God is Glorified in Him God will also Glorify Him immediately.” Now there is the Father and Son I know.

 

Who is this 2nd coming deliverer? That message is anti-christ, as is the whole message of another coming one clearly has not accepted that Christ already came in the flesh of whom 2 Peter 1.4 says that we are partakers of the divine nature having (already) escaped the corruption that is in the world” 

Who is your deliverer?  The Christ who is? Or a 2nd coming Jesus?

 

That which we have seen we have heard we have handled”. Not what you will see hear and handle at a 2nd coming, but “that from the beginning”.

The Kingdom of God is at hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
 

The Quickening, being made alive, and the rapture.

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

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

 

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

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. 

Part 2 The Gathering and the fullness of time

Download PDF

We have discussed in previous articles how Paul teaches in Ephesians that we having been made alive together with Christ, having raised us up together In Christ, and made us sit together with Christ in the heavens with Christ is the very “gathering together of the fullness of times”. The mystery of the gospel that was entrusted to Paul for him to make all men see.

 
Pauls stewardship and purpose was just this. To make all see the purpose that He accomplished in Christ at the cross so that we would have “boldness and access with confidence and faith “In Him”. Paul had finally come to grips with his purpose of making clear what our inheritance is now, not at a 2nd coming.
But by the work of Christ on earth, not a future one. For us to accept this gift by faith and grow in understanding it through the gospel.
Any gospel message that stops short of this current reality of life with the Father, stops short of bringing you into the Kingdom of God “In Christ”.
 
You could say that Paul became a gate keeper for the kingdom of God. Unlike all the St. Peter jokes at the pearly gate after death or at a 2nd coming. Paul’s gospel message here is at the dispensation of the fullness of time whereby we are gathered together with Christ “In Christ”, seated with Him now by the working of faith. Didn’t Jesus say many times that “the Kingdom of God is at hand”? Well this is what that is. And it is as true now as it was then.
 
Now Paul was not always clear in his mind of his calling and objectives like he is here. He understood that he had not yet attained, that he was not yet perfected, but he knew it was attainable and worthy to reach for in this current age. This is true godliness, god-like-ness. 
 
Paul further describes this in Ephesians 4 as “the work of the ministry, the building up of the body of Christ on earth, till we all come to the unity of faith, to a complete knowledge, to a perfect man and full stature of Christs likeness. To grow up into Him who is the head of the body. Seated in the heavens. 
 
I know how hard it is for us to divorce this concept from the leavened loaf of the end timers teaching. For they think the gathering together is at a 2nd coming event on earth as with most of the scriptures. Paul spoke of this in Ephesians too. To “no longer be tossed to and fro by every wind and doctrine of men (of carnal thinking) by which they lie in wait to deceive”. 
 
However well intended these people may seem to be. Anyone who has you occupy your thinking of a 2nd coming for the fulfillment  of Gods word in your life is keeping you out of the Kingdom now” They cannot be quickened, resurrected, raised and seated together with Him now in their mind if it is later. They reject the gift of God “in Christ”.
 
The whole book of Ephesians is to make clear this point and our purpose here on earth. To gather together in one. To awaken to this reality of being seated with Him now. To grow in understanding this now. In one all things in Christ Jesus.
Now this may seem like too big of a stretch for you to believe this reality, this mystery that Paul is trying to convey to us. To help us be renewed in our mind to accept being seated now in the heavens “In Christ” Jesus. But this is not a new concept. It was just new for Paul. It is a mystery hidden in Christ for the fullness of times. And your fullness of times can be now if you allow Him to be glorified now and not at some 2nd coming where He has to do another work. Even as the disciples said that they remembered these things were written of Him after He was glorified”. You too will think anew, or remember when He is glorified in your mind. This is your fullness of time to glorify Him now as King, victor, and salvation being the full work of God  displayed by Jesus the man not left for a second coming. “Be ye reconciled to this”Be ye seated” 
 
So lets look where else this is at in scripture. In John 17 Jesus speaks with our Father. He finished His work on earth. He has authority over all. He was restored with the Glory He had with the Father from before the beginning. Then He speaks of those who He has kept, who have “received His word”. Who are “not of this world but in the world” that the world may know. And this was not just to those alive in that day but also to those “Who would believe in Me through their word”.
 
Jesus goes on to say to the Father in John 17.

20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will[e] believe in Me through their word;21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. 26 And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it,that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

 

Isn’t being one with Him being raised together, ascended together and seated together with Him like Paul said? And this is our stewardship to proclaim this same truth now! Why? “That the world may know” and “that they (us who believe) made be made perfect in one” That is us now, perfect in understanding, being joined to Him who is the head of the body seated in the heavens now. 

 

So do not say in your mind, well who is going to go to heaven to bring this down for us? (like a 2nd coming) Or who will ascend from the deep to bring Him up? Or, how can I climb up to sit down myself? 

 

Romans 8.8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”[a] (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.   Unto completion, the full package, seated with Him in Glory, a perfect man, a full measure of Christ.

 

This is the gospel of the true Kingdom of God and the place of our calling. To Him through the working of faith.

Part 1 The Gathering and the Fullness of Time

Ephesians 2.20+ Having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone. In whom the whole building of God is joined together.

 
Wow! What a remarkable verse. We “Having been built” in the city of our God.
 
2.11 Therefor remember, be reminded, know and understand that we were once gentiles, we were once aliens from the citizenship. But now we are not. We have been brought together by the blood of Jesus Christ. Not a 2nd coming event. “He made us all one, He reconciled us all together through the cross.
 
4.4 This is the bond of peace, the blood. This is the unity of the body. One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all, actuated by the finished work of the cross not a 2nd coming, but through His blood, the forgiveness of sin.
 
And having done this He (2.1+5+) made us alive together, un-noticeble  to the carnal senses. He raised us up together. He made us sit together, by the work of the cross. Not second coming events.
 
Wake up you deniers and despisers of the cross. You ascribe all things things to be fulfilled at a 2nd coming and reject this gift from God. To be baptised together, made alive together, raised together, and seated together with Him. To this we are citizens.
 
This is the very gathering you are seeking to obtain, but not by faith but as it were at a 2nd coming, but the elect have obtained it. To be “In Christ”, to be made alive “In Him” to be raised and sat down together with Him. These are not blank words to be actuated at some 2nd coming but a current reality to the one with this faith.
 
Can you say that you have been built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets with Jesus Christ being the chief cornerstone? Isn’t this later for the 2nd coming seekers? Is it that the apostles the prophets and Jesus need to do another work for this to be so? That they are not the foundation but they will be later? That maybe they are in heaven playing checkers waiting for the time of a 2nd coming to become famous?
 
You are alienated in your mind from the truth that is “In Christ”. We are being built together growing to be a habitation of God in the spirit. The only thing being built now is our understanding. You are complete “In Him” now learn to understand that. 
 
We walk by faith, we receive by faith, we enter and sit down by faith. It is from faith to faith. Every step. Those who seek for it to be activated at an event defined as a 2nd coming have departed from that which is from the beginning.
 
We have discussed the specifics of the event of Ephesians 1.10 “that in the fullness of times He would gather together in one all things that are In Christ Jesus, both which are in heaven and on earth “In Him” In whom we have obtained an inheritance now. Not the 2nd coming.  
 
It is the same fullness of time described in Galatians 4.3-7 but when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His son born of a women, to redeem those bound by the elements and time frame of the first creation and now we are his heirs and offspring.
 
End time pursuers deny all this and ascribe these things to an event they call the 2nd coming. They think they have to undergo their own death or a rapture to realize the truth we have just spoken of being resurrected and seated in the heavens “In Christ”
 
So we have died and been raised gathered together with Him. We have ascended and been seated gathered together with Him. Being raised together, seated together by one spirit by one event, the cross. Not of ourselves at a 2nd coming.
 
Are you still bound by the elements of time and matter from the 1st creation? Are you not a new creation? Do you really think that you are completed and delivered at a 2nd coming?

The Lords Supper 8/17

The Lords Supper

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Where are you?
