The Lie to Adam and Eve

Download PDF

In the beginning God said “Let us make man in our image and our likeness”. And God did. But the man was distracted by another. Man was tempted by the fruit of another tree of one who said “For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God”. It was Satan who offered godliness, meaning god-like-ness, in a different way. But godliness is the objective of the gospel and our time sojourning on earth.

 
You see it was not a lie “that you would become as Gods” because God had already said “let Us make man in our likeness” and fulfilled when God sent man out of Eden. It was after eating the forbidden fruit that God said  “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— 23 therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. The lie and deception was not that they would become as Gods but that to “become as Gods” was offered through another venue. Another source.
 
And this is what the 2nd coming message does. It denies godliness through the knowledge of God, to become partakers of the divine nature by faith in the Christ of the cross in the here and now and ascribes the gift of godliness to another. The gift to become Gods children and being transfigured by reformatting their minds through the gospel is circumvented to become godly at a 2nd coming rapture or a future resurrection, but “flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom”. To be transfigured by that event, that is the lie. They ascribe saving power and transforming power for later and miss out on the “transformation from the Glory to the Glory as by the Spirit”.
 
That which was from the beginning” as John the apostle referred to and not by an end time thing. You see the garden patterned for us our choices when we read scripture. And the forbidden fruit is godliness from another venue. A different offering for godliness. A physical one.
 
 It is clear to see that the lie from the beginning is still active. And lucky for us we can choose to eat of the tree of life for the divine gift (Revelation 2.7, Gal 3.3, 1 John 5.4) by eating of the tree of the cross for “cursed is everyone who hangs from a tree? And Christ did just that for us. The tree of life is to eat of the fruit of the cross and become godly in that way and not another. Both of these messages use scripture. Which one is palatable to you? Are you the elect? Or are you deceived?   Flesh and blood or spirit? “For God is spirit and truth and seeketh such”.  Such are we.
 
The Kingdom of God is at hand. It is working and operative just  as designed from the beginning.

MISSION OF JOHN THE BAPTIST

MISSION OF JOHN THE BAPTIST

It was John the Baptist who said of Christ “here comes the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”. It was Christ who is the propitiation for the sins of the whole world. (1 John 2.1) It is in Christ that all things are made new and need not another. Christ at the cross said “It is finished!” as if to say “paid in full!”
    Any other gospel message that comes short of taking away the sins of the world is incomplete. Any other message that teaches of a future saving or a future victory over sin or a future victory over Satan or a future victory in any way is a false gospel, a truncated gospel. It rejects the saving of the cross. But “we speak of what we’ve heard and testify to the things that we have seen” that “God has sent His Son as savior of the world.
     John was a man sent forth by God. It was said of John the Baptist that of all the prophets he was the greatest. And he was the greatest, because he spoke plainly something that all the other prophets just alluded to saying “the Kingdom of God is at hand”. But he later asked “are you the coming one or do I seek another”.  You see it was John first who said that “the kingdom of God is at hand” that later lost faith saying ” are you the coming one?”  John wanted a visual. He wanted physical proof that “the Kingdom of God is at hand” as many do today.  And it is, but it is not some silly city on earth called Jerusalem. That was turned “till not one stone was left upon another”. So you shouldn’t be confused. Jerusalem was sown corruptible visibly and raised incorruptible in the spirit portrayed at pentecost.
    This is why “of those born among women there is none greater than John the Baptist?” The Kingdom is of a different construct then time and matter. That is why “he who is least in the Kingdom is greater than he”? Yes. Greater than John and for that matter even the apostles for they are the foundation we stand on. (Rev 21 and Eph 3)
     You see no other prophet said it so plainly and so clearly. That the kingdom of God is something to be grasped. “At Hand”. To assimilate it and activate it now through the knowledge of the living God made manifest in the face of Christ. For “All the law and the prophets were until John the baptist. STOP. From that time the Kingdom the Kingdom is preached and all are pressing in”? Yes! The revelation through John takes us as far as any man can because “all the law and the prophets were parables”. Yes they were pictures and play things to mimic and imitate the invisible ever ready, ubiquitous heavenly Kingdom at hand even as we speak now. The law and the prophets were visible things to learn of the invisible. Parables to teach by carnal visuals of things we need to understand in the spirit of our mind of the “Kingdom prepared from the foundation of the world”? A pre-incarnate reality we call the spirit.
   And “when that which is perfect has come”? This is the regenerate re-formatted mind of faith that co-rules and reigns with the Father even now. Rev 3 “He who overcomes shall rule with a rod of iron” And this happens how? 1 John 5 how is it that we overcome the world? By faith. This is the overcoming of scripture and need not another earthly Jesus or another city on earth but the one “Come down from God out of Heaven” (Rev 21). And who is it that it is said of? “He who overcomes shall be a pillar in the house of God”. Those who receive this in this age we live.
    The churches were called to overcome as we’re the Jews but they got stuck in the visuals, like today. That it is not fact but faith. That is not of the eternal spirit but time and matter and every clock has a start and a stop. Every mountain erodes, every flower withers and every city has a deadline and an expiration date, but not the things of God.That is what eternal means and what we inherit. That which was before God ever said “Let there be light!” This is what we get. This is why John the apostle said “if that which is from the beginning abides in you, you abide in the truth”. A later coming Christ is an illusion of “him who is not yet” as John asked “are you the coming one “?  A christ in progress will never will be. The 1st coming Christ who was rejected is rejected again today as they look for a 2nd coming savior to save from the world. And here is where John starts as we just said “here comes the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world”? And He did. Can you believe this? Can you receive this? Then you are of this kind scripture saying “that which is born of the flesh is.
    No city or king on earth ever are the fulfillment of Gods word like Jesus said “My Kingdom is not of this world”? Meaning of time and matter.
   Learn what this means ” Where there are prophecies they will fail, where ther are visions they will cease, but when that which is perfect has come, that which is in part is done away with”. This is what this we are talking about.
   When Moses was instructed to “make things according to the pattern you saw on the mount” he was to make visible the invisible in a way for them to assimulate the Kingdom of God “from where “if even a man or a beast touches they will die”. This is the purpose of  all the law and every true prophet. To make visible the invisible things of God and His invisible Kingdom, A place where flesh and blood can’t go but only to the re-spirited mind of faith as touching the invisible. And we do this with the tool of faith. Our invisible embelical cord to the invisible God and Savior. He was made flesh and dwelled among us only temporarily to return to His original self of being “the same yesterday, today and forever”? Yes! Invisible and ubiquitous.
  And this is the whole purpose of the gospel. That those who are born of the spirit, being those who receive the invisible, which is more concrete than any substance of time and matter. That is “those born of the spirit who see and enter the kingdom in heaven now. They need not a 2nd coming Jesus. John 3.that which is born of the flesh is flesh, that which is born of the spirit is spirit? He is not coming back in a carnal form. “For we knew Christ once according to the flesh but henceforth know we Him that way no more”.
  So we who are born from above are greater than John the baptist and any carnal prophet or righteous man. Even us who are “least in the Kingdom of God at hand”.
   Christianity today is one of the great religions of the world? Yes! And that is all it is. Just another religion of man having lost their inheritance as they wait for it to come again. Having been robbed of its eternal purpose of “the kingdom of God at hand”. It ascribes the kingdom to another Jesus with another coming and forfeit their inheritance as did the Jews of old. They are lost in the visuals and cannot cross over. Like the 12 tribes who crossed the Red Sea to die in the wilderness, so too will these do, and why? Because that is as far as any man can take you. That way of thinking must be cut off hence the beheading of John the Baptist. You need a renewed mind. John the baptist was also a parable. And it is because of this there is no saving power without “the kingdom of God at hand”. Your in need of another Jesus and another Kingdom. The first one was rejected by you if you don’t except the saving of the cross.
   Think about it. Don’t most of other religions and cults expect a savior? A saving one?  To save them and help them from their falleness or wicked world? Then they expect a Kingdom of God in form of a man in a city made with mans devising located on earth some where with a zip code? But God in the beginning stepped out of His Kingdom and said “let there be” and there was something that appeared? He was before all that. So we speak and we testify that “God has sent His Son Savior of the world”. He returned it to its original purpose of being good,  very good.  
     If this testimony is not true? Then God must send somebody to save again. Then yes there will be a second coming savior and the cross has no value but to keep you in a 2000+ year old prison of empty promises by leaving you here waiting to be saved and the cross is a hoax. Is Gods “Kingdom at hand”or not? Did He take it away to have to do another work? Where do you put your faith.  In a future savior who left you here to decay? Or the savior of the cross who made clear to us the resurrection? 
    The 2nd coming message is why the saving of the Christ of the cross is road blocked and detoured like in the days of John the baptist, by a message “with all lying signs and wonders if possible to deceive the elect”. These people seek a second coming saving and it is because of this that the true gospel message has been obscurred.
  John 3.17 God sent His Son into the world not to condemn the world (like a 7 year tribulation) but that through him the world would be saved.  And He did. That was the saving. The price was His life for yours. He paid for your death that you may live for “by His stripes we are healed ” and “on Him was laid the iniquity of us all”. In this way He is “the propitiation for the whole world “.
So here is the demise of John the baptist. He was beheaded. Yes he was a parrable too. As scripture states He only spoke in parables and without a parable spoke He not to “. John pictured that the only place man can take you to is the end of themselves, their time. “a student may become like their teacher but not greater” This is the need of another. To become like the teacher we have in Christ saying “you need not that any one teach you, but the anointing you’ve received teaches you all things?”  The old mindset stuck in parables thinking they are real has to be cut off and replaced with “that which is perfect” which is perfect in understanding. That “God has given us everything that pertains to life and God-like-ness by knowledge”. (2 Peter 1)
     As Christ’s struggle was at Golgotha, the skull, so ours is in our  mind. This is why it is said of John “There is no one born among women greater than he, but he who is least in the kingdom is greater than John, so we are. John failed as the greatest prophet. He failed to get you there and shown us that when he sent to Jesus saying “are you the coming one? This is why Jesus said “I do not receive my testimony from man? And John’s truncated message was included, “for He knew -what was in man”. The is the need to be born again, of a different make up than time and matter with a new set of eyes and ears.
     So “To as many as received Him? to them He gave power to become His children, even those who believed in His name”? Yes! No 2nd coming involvement necessary. We who receive Him as He is. We “are a kind of first fruits of His creation” now and need not another Jesus for this to be true. 
       They were all seeking a kingdom and Jesus sent word back “tell John the things you see” So we do. Christ has come savior of the world and provided for us the way. Himself saying “I am the way the truth and the light. This is the way. Him.
     Christ is the new and living. The old didn’t work. Remember “Father if there be any other way? Never the less thy will be done”. And He did. And He said “It is finished”. This is about as close to thomas you will ever get. “Stick your fingers in this.  This is “That which we have heard, which we have seen and handled concerning the word of life”. And this is the “Word that became flesh and dwelt among us”? Yes! WORD. He only put on carnality temporarily and returned to His true composition. He returned to the Father and calls us to Himself, the new and living way that expired the law and the prophets. They were put out of business by Jesus saying “Father that where I am they may be also” Him who said “I go away to the Father and you see me no more”? And Paul”s revelation “We once knew Christ of the flesh, henceforth we know Him that way no more”. Not ever again. The Word was in the beginning? The word was God? The Word was with God? The word Became flesh (not His natural composition) and dwelt among us” to return home like the parable of John 13.. So “to as many as received Him He gave power to become His children” is not those who received the man Jesus but the word. Which one is your Jesus? The man? Or the Word?
Look and behold it is Me and not another. Did I not say “Lo I am with you through the ages”? That “I will never leave you or forsake you? I am the same “Yesterday, today and forever”? Yes it is Me. It is I who “stands at the door and knocks”. Behold Me. I am the coming one coming through Word. I am Word in My natural composition and this is how I come. Not once like a 2nd coming but over and over and over as many times as you need until you receive Me.. Your “lord delays not His coming”. For the Lord who does not tarry comes to you now in Word form. This is the bread of life that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world now, not later. Receive me this way and not a silly wafer. Or worse another coming man for another coming kingdom on earth and not of Heaven. The place I was before the word came out “let there be…”John sent forth word “Are you the coming one?” The “another coming”mindset was John’s beheading showing the “putting off the body of sin of the flesh” is to be renewed in thinking. This is your rapture and you being “translated into the kingdom”.
When John said  “The Kingdom of God is at hand”. That is as far as man goes. He can deliver the Word. The rest is up to you. “To as many as believed, to them He gave power to become His children”. Did you believe that? Did you receive that? Not the later coming Jesus but Me? Word?  Whom do you seek?

Stir up by remembrance

Download PDF

     I know you know these things but it’s good to keep it fresh. Even as Peter said “to stir up your mind by way of remembrance” Saying of God by the gospel.

 

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

This is a done deal and this is before a 2nd coming.

 

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

Now in this day and age.

 

These are all past tense fulfilled in Christ to be put on by the working of faith, which is our duty to God. Our faith which is our invisible umbilical cord to the invisible God. For “without faith it is impossible to please God,  you much first believe that He is and He is a rewarder to those who diligently seek Him”. And this He does as we seek, not as we wait to die or be raptured, saying “seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and these things will be added to you”.. And since we have these things, our spirit is already where our body wants to go, but our body will never go there. However the redeemed can experience the benefits and pleasures and because the redeption is complete “we are a new creation in Christ” as all things have been

And this includes earth. Yes earth is restored to the beginning being good, very good.  The

 

“He has (already) qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance”? So we don’t need another day. We shouldn’t rely on a 2nd coming but faith. “From faith to faith”  A 2nd coming would be factual. Christ said His kingdom is “not of this age” so we should expect something superior to time and matter.  And His Word is

 

Our man is a digit, A singularity, a human, defined as a person in place and time. This is our old nature. It was Christ who became a man like us for us to become like Him saying “in the beginning was word” and “the word became flesh and dwelled among us” and “to as many as recieved Him? To them He gave power to become His people” not of a future hope but because the New Covenant is now in effect.  “We knew Him once as a man, a digit, a singularity, but henceforth know we Him like that no more. (2 Cor 5.17) He is no longer a singularity and if anyone is “in Christ” they are no longer a singularity constricted to their old humanity, but are a “new creation” in His image, being ubiquitous. Not being restricted to this creation of time and space. God is spirit and He seeks those to worship Him in spirit and truth which precedes and supercedes time and matter.

The very reason that the Word became flesh and dwelled among us was to proof that godliness or God-like-ness is a reality while we sojourn here. We too

 

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

 

Our carnal desire is to be with a carnal Christ  but this can never be. Flesh and blood does not, and cannot inherit the Kingdom. And this body does not go there it returns to dust. It is not for the physical eye or the physical ear. “For seeing with their eyes they see not and hearing with their ears they hear not.  For it is with the heart one must see and hear to understand the things of God “. It is the new man made in His image that rules over the flesh. So the flesh can enjoy it saying “For He has given us richly all things to enjoy “.

 

So if we were Raptured, or taken away from this world in our current phase of transformation, we would freeze in our current condition as scripture says “when time is no more” ? “Let him who is unjust be unjust still he who is filthy let him be filthy still, he who is righteous let him be righteous still, he who is holy let him be holy still” Rev 22.11.

God would have to re-create the same current earthly conditions to finish His work in us. That is why we are here. As He said of this creation that “it is good, very good”. Earth is perfectly qualified to confine the fallen and teach renewal to the redeemed.

 

This is why eschatology and end times fascinations can be so dangerous. By being an escape from the greater work God wants to do in us now as we are instructed to “put on Christ’ in the here and now, and from Colossians 3 “since you are risen with Christ (not if) seek the things that are above. And verse 10 ” put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him”? But some wait to be raptured?

 

Eschatology focuses on and speaks of another day and derails the work of the Holy Spirit now who says Today! If you hear His voice. For “since there remains a rest for the people of God?” “see that you do not refuse Him who calls us from heaven”. And “why seek ye another? ” And “behold it is I! I kill and I bring to life Deu 32.39-40

 

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

 

So why do we need a rapture? To be saved? To be delivered from this evil world? To be quickened? To be translated? This has already happened if you neleive the scriptures, if you are “in Christ” who said “Father I pray not that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one”?.. And He did if  you can receive it,. You are already in His will, why would you want to go somewhere else?

 

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

As Joshua and Caleb said of the promises f God ” if God has given us the land (invisible promises) we are well able to possess them!” These two men “were of a wholly different spirit” than the fear mongers of that day, and so are we.

 

As in Daniel there were 3 men threatened with fire, and their reply? God is able to deliver us from the fire, but even if He doesn’t I will not worship your image. It was in the fire where the forth man was seen. We know who He was. It is in the fire we learn to partake of heavenly pleasures scripture saying “think it not strange concerning the fire which is to try you as though it’s strange.  For as you partake in the fire, is for you to experience Gods glory. And we do in greater degree after the trial and need not wait for a 2nd coming Jesus.

So fear not these end time images they present to you for they will fail as do all prophecies (1 Corinthians 13.8 ). And they will present another and they will fail too.  Do not fear little flock. We are where we need to be. “In Him”.

Jacobs Ladder Part 3 add to one?

Jacob’s Ladder 3 The Gospel by degree


Jacob’s Ladder part 3. The Gospel by degree. “To the degree that ye have attained so walk ye in it”

It was Paul who said that Christ was made poor for us to become rich. He bore our spiritual poverty . And Paul also said of himself “so that we would become rich”. You see God the Father did not leave us poor and destitute. We have an inheritance and not like the inheritance of a piece of paper called “A will and testament” with a signature of a deceased.  Our inheritance is the impression of God in the face of Jesus Christ on our souls. But of this inheritance there is only one access. And that is by faith as we see the immensity of the promises of God given to us that “we are partakers of the divine nature” as promised by the gospel. It is in this way we realize our inheritance in the here and now and need not wait for another for if God has given us EVERYTHING THAT PERTAINS TO LIFE AND GOD-LIKE-NESS and that WE ARE PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE now, what does a 2nd coming Jesus give us that we don’t already have? It was “by His stripes we are healed” said Isaiah. Meaning the cross. He healed the effects of the fall in Eden for us to be restored to that which is from the beginning being like Adam in Eden in fellowship with God.
    That relationship is restored even as Paul said “I plead with you by the mercies of God be ye reconciled! ” And this all takes place at a one time public offering of the cross “each one in their own order ” and not at an encore presentation called the 2nd coming. That is a faithless gospel that expects to appease the carnal senses at a spectacular event expressed in time and matter,  a consistency God is not.
     Here again is another error by the second coming gospel purveyors. They suppose to be stricken until they physically see a redemption from Earth. They believe they are in limbo in need of the 2nd coming. It is that their foolish mind that is darkened by denying the “glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”. They are blinded by the god of this age that provides another message of another Savior of time and matter to do something for you as if the work already finished in Christ by the cross is insufficient. And this insults the spirit of grace.
   But “my Lord delayeth not his coming” as supposed by the wicked servant. And from Hebrews 10? for the just shall live by faith and if any man draw back my soul has no pleasure in him saith the Lord for the Lord. Not meaning he waits not to come but he comes even now but it is the Second Coming seekers who cannot seek or see this 4 they are looking with the wrong set of eyes having eyes to see and ears to hear they see nor hear not the things of God for those with the heart that one sees and understands things of God
And it is because the Second Coming purveyors think that a perfect man has only to do with being perfected that are rapture they cannot have this they are robbed of the reward they are kept from the gift of God who has redeemed us to the cross of the blood and if redemption means anything other than restoration and reconciliation it has no meaning at all
Think about it if a person is drowning just because somebody grabs a hold of them to bring them to shore and holds their head above water you cannot say they are saved they are being saved salvation is incomplete and it is in this way the second coming forebears suppose salvation to mean something other than being saved they are at a midway point waiting for another Jesus to come stop them from drowning in the things of this age when if they knew the works of God and the power of God through word, they would appropriate the promise that Jesus said “father I do not take them out of the world but I pray that you keep them from evil”. Then having this promise tried and receiving the gift that is given. This is how the Word of God is alive. That the promises are appropriated. And as Peter says we are partakers of the divine nature having xscape the corruption that is in the world? So we do. This is done by faith and not a second coming man called Jesus. Amen?
Paul the Apostle was counted among those who were most antagonistic towards God before his conversion. He was met on the road to Damascus by a shining light and his journey began.  it was Paul who was selected by the Christ to lay out the path from that antagonistic belief system to the living God when it was said “who are you Lord? To which Christ replied “Why kick ye against the goads? He was to be a foundation stone of the Kingdom.
    So it was Paul who grew by degree in Revelation from the antagonistic Jewish culture that was left “not one stone upon another” that Christ used to make a bridge from the Satanic religion that rejected Christ to believe in the living God.
Before Paul’s conversion he was found as one who murdered the followers of Christ. He was chief among  sinners and became a prototype for his peers. And of his peers it was said that they were a “brood of vipers”. And of his contemporaries it was said “you travel land and sea to make convert and when doing so you make them twice the sons of Hell as yourself”. You see when Christ chided with the Pharisees he told them “you are the sons of your father the devil” who was a liar from the beginning. And when Christ chided with them? They gnashed at Him with their teeth. Wasn’t this a symptom of those who are cast into outer darkness? And that is where they were. They were sons of outer darkness being darkened in their conscience, in their mind, rational and spirit and drawing men to themselves.
 This is where we start today for this is where Paul started.  So it should not be surprising to see in Paul’s epistles a transition from that unholy religion to faith in the living God. So do not be surprised to see a mix in concepts or to see Paul’s later letters not coinciding with his earlier letters. Because of this it is impossible to read all scripture together as harmonious on an equal plane as demonstrated from Jacob’s Ladder part 1 & 2. It is this one reason that there are so many Christian religions and denominations today. We should see scripture as hills and mountains to climb and not a level valley to hurl darts at each other. “Come, let us rise from here”.
So Paul’s mind had to be washed from his earlier concept of death and resurrection and the recreation.

Daniel “The Most High rules in the kingdom of men”

Download PDF
Daniel 4.17 :‘This decision is by the decree of the watchers,

And the sentence by the word of the holy ones,
In order that the living may know
That the Most High rules in the kingdom of men,
Gives it to whomever He will,And sets over it the lowest of men.’

   This was the mindset of king Belshazzar who was in power over His kingdom. That “God rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the most lowest of men”.   But he fell from understanding and ascribed his own power and was judged. He glorified not God and ascribed power to another as though God had to regain power. Having been given the heart of a beast to eat grass like an animal “till 7 times passed over him” until? Until he had a revelation of the living God. He went from king to beast and back to king through a series of sevens untill he came to know and believe that Gods dominion is an everlasting dominion, And His kingdom is from generation to generation. Daniel 4.34
     And this is what every one does. Being made in the image of God, we are created in His image to govern,rule,reign, set in order. To “go forth and have dominion”. As we walk with God he “always leads us to triumph”. And in this way Belshazzar fell in understanding. So did Adam and Eve, so do we. We are born in a fallen state and need to be renewed in understanding of our kingship. “For all have sined and fallen short of the Glory of God” but in Christ we arise. Before that we are like beasts being subject to our environment and letting our circumstances govern our lower nature and have power over us. And for how long? Till 7 times passes over. This is symbolic of the 7 times of scripture and the purpose of the gospel. To restore us to our rightful inheritance “In Christ”.
     Through a series of sevens we arrive at the rest of God. The Sabbath. The true sabbath. Not just the 7th day but we enter the rest of God from creation, to the place before creation where God is. And the purpose of the Gospel is for us to return there. Where? Where we reign being joint heirs with Christ being “seated in the heavenlies far about all principalities and powers”.  When Belshazzar came to himself his senses, he was restored his kingship. And that is what happens to us. It is the gospel that takes us by up degree to “attain why Christ laid hold of me “. (See series on Jacob’s ladder)
      And here is where the 2nd coming message fails miserably.  They say the world is out of control and that Christ must come back and do another work because the world is out of control.  So their world is out of control. And they like Belshazzar eat like a beast the things of God and interpret His word in a carnal way until they come to know that God rules over the affairs of men and puts in place those whom He sees fit. They will remain in their mortal confinements. They will never become rulers over their circumstances. They glorify Satan as ruler.
      Paul warned of them saying “why then are you subject to the weak and beggars elements of the earth? You observe days months seasons and years.  I afraid for you that I’ve labored in vain”. The second coming seekers have Gods work set out in sevens calling it a 7 year tribulation.  That the god man Jesus will come again in a carnal way to appease their sight sound and senses then He will be king. Then God will be in control. But we have senses of a different nature.  “To those who have ears to hear” and for us who are born of the Spirit saying “many righteous men and prophets have desired to see what you see and hear what you hear but have not “. And that is? Just like Belshazzar confessed.  God is not out of control wringing His hands waiting to send His son a 2nd time to come and save us. He already did that but you don’t believe the gospel.The gospel to be restored a king so do we. We are seated with Him in the heavenlies now. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us to the Kingdom. “We have come to know and believe that God rules over the Kingdoms of men and sets over it the lowest of men’and reject the fodder of another coming Jesus. That God rules in any and all generations being “King of Kings and Lord of lords” and need not come back to do so. We who really know God and His Son know that God has come.
      They are looking for a carnal, cataclysmic intervention. And like in Daniel, if you don’t bow down and worship their understanding of scripture? They threaten that you will burn with the fire of a 7 year tribulation period. Much like Shadrach and his two friends in the fire? We call this the false gospel of hell and damnation and not “peace and goodwill towards man” of the gospel. They “know not what matter of spirit” they are. The forth man in the fire? Was the Son of God. It was the feeders of the fire who were mortally burned. And as long as you promulgate that message? You are not just spell bound but dead bound with the same demise. It was the wicked servant who said “my lord delays His coming” who was cast into outer darkness. So these are, darkened in understanding. Till when? Learn from Darius. Jesus does not need to come back to fight for this world for scripture says “the ruler of this world has been judged” and Darius confessed that “God rules over the affairs of men and sets in power whomever He wishes. And as it was said of the disciples of Christ. That after Christ was glorified they remembered these things were written about Him. Yes they are expired for “all the law and the prophets were until Christ, now the Kingdom is preached and all are pressing in”. Are you?
        So for those who are looking for a 2nd coming Jesus? They don’t know who he is. They know His works but they don’t know His ways for “in the beginning was the word and the word was God”. He only became a man for our redemption and restoration and salvation. That “He became flesh and dwelled among us” that he “being found in the appearance of man” that He “taking on the likeness of sinful flesh ” returned to His Kingship with the Father, the place of our calling. He returned to His natural natural pre-creation nature and calls us there as He prayed “Father that they may be with me where I am”.
          As shown in the parable in John 13 . Jesus was seated and taking off His cloak He took a towel and girded Himself. Having washed His disciples feet He laid aside His towel and stood back up. He put His cloak back on and sat down and said to His disciples “do you realize what I have just done?”. Jesus just showed them His Eschatology.  Nowhere was there a 2nd coming. The word became flesh  (a construct He is not naturally so why should He come back that way?) and dwelt among us.  And as the Holy Spirit now convicts and the words of Christ confirm “I go away to the Father and you see Me no more”. Why? Because His coming is the way it has always been, WORD. Before He became flesh He was WORD!  Gods Son in His natural composition is WORD. Gods word is spirit and life but many seek another Jesus who is not word but a physical thing. They don’t except Him as He truly is.
       So as long as someone eats the fodder of the 2nd coming gospel, as long as they see a 7 year tribulation and a future Christ to be king later, they are like king Belshazzar eating fodder and reject their inheritance of their salvation now. They are not “seated with Him in the heavenlies” but wait for another Jesus, another gospel and another coming. Didn’t the Jews do that?
       The Kingdom of God is at hand…. Still, as in the beginning. Come on in if you can receive it.

Define Carnal Christian

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

Polarities of creation Pt 2 Creation serves God

Download PDF

In previous posts we explain how creation now pleases God in the way that it was designed from the beginning. To raise His offspring showing that by contrast light from dark good and evil eternal vs temporary. It is by these contrasts that man can learn about God. “Eternal life to those who by patient continuing of doing good seek for glory, honor and immortality but to those who are self seeking? Indignation and wrath”. (Rom 2.8) We learn that God is light in the contrast of darkness we learn that God is good in the contrast of evil. God is invisible but we live in time and matter. These are the boundaries for our transfiguration and the polarities that define our choices.

   We explained that the contrast of evil was foreseen as part of the plan as is evident by God’s words when after Adam and Eve ate from the tree their carnal eyes being opened, “God said the man has become like us to know good and evil”. Had they ate of the other tree they would have a different set of eyes. This is re gifted to us by rebirth being able to see and enter Gods ever present kingdom at hand as explained in John 3.3-5. For those who have ears to hear? This is not of a carnal nature.
   So any redemption of creation does not to take away contrasts of good and evil, renewal and decay, light and dark.  Creation itself does not transform, but we do between the polarities. In this way “we are a new creation in Christ ” as quoted from 2 Corinthians 5. 17. It is that there is a polarity shift from being cursed to being blessed that creation now responds favorably to the redeemed. To those who are “a kind of first fruit of His creation”.Us!  And this takes place in the spirit of our mind for “God is spirit and God is truth and seeketh such”. Such are we. Creation had no cataclysmic event when man fell and left the garden.
   The redemption once again is in the firmament of the mind, which is a greater expense than the sea, the Earth, and all the visual heavens . At conversion a polarity shift takes place whereby we choose blessing and trusting God rather than cursing and doing our own thing. That we are set out “for good works that we made do them”. Christs words were “Father I pray not that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from evil. And this is totally possible if you have faith in His words. The curse of evil is removed and the polarity shift is complete for those who believe. Scripture also saying “he who has the Son has life, he who has not the Son has not life. It’s that simple. Just like when God said “let there be light” and it was so? So too these words are more concrete and substantial than any of this emc = square stuff.
   This is shown in the Exodus which pictures baptism where the angel of death passes over the first fruit as first born, then destroys the first born in Egypt symbolizing all our enemies. It is shown again when the water parted at the Red Sea to save the elect but then turned to destroy the enemies. This shows the two polarities and it is participated in by personal choice for us as it was for Adam and Eve and only shown as cataclysmic pictured at the Red Sea for our understanding. It was only a picture of what happens in the spirit, for that is the element that supersedes all creation that the humanly visual creation only displays by contrasts for our learning. “Till we all become to the stature of the Son of God, a perfect man”. And we do by understanding”. Not by a cataclysmic event.
   It is God who in the last of these days has spoken by his son”. He is no longer to speak or create something new as though something is not yet. All things were created by him and for him and function just fine in their current condition. It is as we apply His word in ourselves that  we appropriate and receive our salvation through understanding the words in the gospel, recieving the end of your faith, the salvation of your souls. (1 Peter 1.9)
   This is Christ “the bread of life that comes down and gives life to the world”. And He did. This is that cataclysmic event for our transfiguration and not a second coming. This is how we put off the old and put on the new man. Colossians 3.9 “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”. This is “the faith once and for all delivered to the saints” that we are to contend for. This is as Paul said that “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation” and He need not jump start it by doing something cataclysmic for your hardened heart to see and believe, and it is “from faith to faith”. This is the words  at the cross “IT IS FINISHED”.
 
 There will be no new speaking by God. There will be no new battles no new fighting from heaven for “God in the last of these days has spoken to us by His Son”. He is “seated waiting for his enemies to become his footstool”. The fighting and battling is now ours as we appropriate His word in us. This is what pleases God and He showed us how to do it at His temptation saying “for it is written …” And this is how we show that we are his first fruit of His creating”. His off spring in the here and now.
   So the purpose of creation is to present to us a blessing or by cursing depending on our choice. By murmuring we appropriate curses or praising we glorify God and appropriate blessings  It is our choice on how we use our words. It is God’s purpose in this way to bring many sons to glory as we appropriate word like God. “We believe Therefor we speak”. What we believe is his word regardless of the physical findings. And this is not a new speaking of a new thing but repeating through ourselves the word already spoken. The gospel. “For it is written”.  And this is the good news. Romans 10.6-10 modified ” For where is the cataclysmic event from the sky? Or where is the upheaval on the earth like the second coming purveyors suppose? No the word is very near that you may hear it and do it. If you believe with your heart and confess with your tongue that Christ was raised from the dead, you will be saved”. This is how you hear it and do it. This is the salvation of God. Word. Word reiterated.
   That is the purpose of the Gospel active now only during the age that time and matter and contrasts exists. So the purpose of this creation operates the way that it is being “good very good”. Once it is stopped and recalled there will be time and matter no more for “we are receiving a kingdom that is unshakable”. We are receiving an eternal kingdom that has no beginning and no end. This is why in this age, and this age only, is the work of salvation unto completion “into a perfect man” being redeemed and restored to partake of the glory of God as designed from the beginning. As it says in 1st John “if that from the beginning abides in you”. And “that from the beginning” is that which predates the creation of time and matter, EMC equals square Big Bang stuff.
   Romans 3.23; All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. But for the redeemed? Those who follow Christ that “where he is there we may be also”? We reign with him in the heavens far above all powers and principalities being a co-ruler and co-reigner with him even while we occupy our human body. Like Christ who “came in the likeness of sinful man, being found in the appearance of man” so are we. “let this mind be in you that was in Christ, who thought it not robbery to be equal to God” (Philippians 2) So we do. Blessed are those who here and keep the word of God”? So we do.
 
   The message of the Christ of the cross is peace and goodwill towards man. Not death and tribulation that the 2nd coming purveyors suppose. They “know not what matter of spirit they are”. Humanity in general is in a spiritual slumber awaiting a “time of visitation” of the spirit of God. Even as the Jews missed their time as scripture says “for they were better off not to know salvation then to know it and turn from it”. Or as Christ said to the Pharisees that “I came and did the work that nobody else did therefor their sin remains”. And as it says in 2 Peter that “they would be better off not knowing the gospel then to know it and turn from it”. From Romans 1 “although they knew God they glorified Him not as God nor were they thankful professing to be wise they became fools and turn the glory of the incorruptible invisible God into the image of a man” to be made visible. And that is what a second coming gospel preachers seek. Another saving of another day through cataclysmic events and judgements. That today is not the day of salvation and completion but maybe tomorrow or 2000 years or something.
   So it is the religious order of the day as they turn from righteousness are even called “sons of Satan” and “brood of vipers” as in any other generation, just as Christ spoke to the Jewish leaders. Wasn’t it Christ the man Jesus who was seen with wine biblers and tax collectors? But of that religious order all the way up through the law and the prophets and quoted by Christ and by Paul saying “this wicked generation and stiff necked of heart always resisting the Holy Spirit” These too are “clouds without water, twice dead pulled up by their roots.
    It is the 2nd coming seekers who cannot see or enter the Kingdom  (John 3.3-5) who promulgate another kingdom and another savior. These people like in the days of Lot, groped around blindly looking for the door saying of the Lord “bring them out that we may see them and know them”. So too are the works of that gospel. That is the very works of the visible city of God “which is spiritually called Sodom and Gomorrah where our Lord was slain” (Rev 10) So these people do.
   That’s why “we must pay closer to the things we hear this we should let him slip four of the word spoken to angels proved steadfast and every transgression and disobedience received its just reward what makes us think that we shall escape the same judgment?” It is in the here and now that we are pruned to bear more fruit or cut off to wither. For those who hear the message and reject it? Die in the wilderness and don’t receive the promises as did those who rejected the spirit with Moses. In that day it was said “TODAY if you will here His voice , today is the day of salvation “. Or like in Samuel the Lord said ” the people have not rejected you from reigning over them but Me”. Those people rejected the invisible God so He gave them Saul. Likewise for the 2nd coming seekers? God gave them another, a choice.  An illusion with “all lying signs and wonders”. Why? Because they are those “who came out from among us” to manifest another coming”. They do not receive the message of “TODAY” but a 2000 year old lie. They call it “the second coming. And they rob you of your inheritance by their enticing words.
   As Christ said to those who were seeking a future coming kingdom in that day “they will say look here and look there but do not follow them”. These are the blind leading the blind and will get you nowhere. Receive the gospel that says “today if you here His voice”. Allow God to re-spirit you for blessings and “be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind” that you may enjoy the inheritance gifted to us now. To Him who has given us richly all things to enjoy. Christ died so we don’t have to. He died for us to experience heavenly blessings. You see “it is Gods good pleasure to give you the Kingdom”. Have you received it? Or was the cross unsuccessful? Your choice.
                           “The Kingdom of God is at hand”

Polarities of creation. Pt 1 From the beginning

Download PDF

In the beginning God made man in a polarity between heaven and earth saying “Of the ground God formed man from the dust, and God breathed into man and he became a living being”. After his tenor on earth his flesh would return to the dust and his spirit, meaning Gods breath, would return to God.

     Man was made in the image of  God and was installed on planet earth to become Godly. His purpose was to through trial and error learn of who he was. It was as he lived between contrasts, light and dark, hot and cold, wet and dry, decay and renewal etcetera, that he would put on godly attributes, to learn to discern good and evil. To choose godliness or follow the inclinations of his lower nature. He was made with the capacity to reject or reflect Gods glory and likeness from the beginning. And that was his value and the value of any human and the reason for the word to become flesh.

     It wasn’t until Adam had sinned by distrust and disbelief in God and believed in another, in the contrast,  that the plurality of God said “man has become to be like one of us to know good and evil” that the mechanism we call creation was completely set up to develop these new creations, to aspire the likeness of the living God, aned that was said when he sinned. If Adam and Eve had not chosen the tree, they would not “become like one of us to know good and evil.
     The fall was in full view to God from the beginning. When the choice to disobey and to disbelieve God was made by man, God was not caught off guard. For when God looked at His work after the 6th day when He created man He said that “it was good” then He paused to think of all the possibilities. Like a big chess game He knew all of humanities frailties and moves and then said of His creation that not only was it good but it was “very good”. Just as it says that God created all the herbs and trees, scripture also says that “God had not caused any of the trees to grow because “there was no man yet to till the ground”. He was demonstrating that all of creation was made to serve man and of creation from day one to none, all the provisions had been made for all of humanities probabilities for this is the responsibility of God, that when man went forth, the provisions would then be available.
     The creation of time and matter was complete and needed no future intervention as though He was surprised and needed a plan B. All the possibilities and probabilities to contain man were set in place. God was not surprised at all, nor was there anyway that man could ruin Gods sovereignty and plan. So the fall of man and the redemption were complete from the beginning, and this is the polarity we live between to become godly, or God like. And it was part of the plan. Like 1 John says “that which is from the beginning abide in you”.
     So this all sounds reasonable enough but we define this as such because there is another gospel message in our day which is not “from the beginning ” but an “end times” we need to be aware of. Many man made messages say the world is out of control, and for man it is. For God it is not and never has been. God does not have to do another work for another redemption or restoration to return creation back to another form for “the whole earth is full of the Glory of God” and “the world is kept in store by the same word who created it”.
     For what? For all the earth and its works shall be burned for the eternal to remain “.  (2Pet ) Meaning there will be time and matter no more.
    It just as creation is understood in contrasts like light and dark, so too it was Gods original plan for decay and renewal, heavenly and earthly to be part of the original plan of “bringing many sons to glory”. So any supposed restoration like from decay is not a renewal to that from the beginnin because decay was there saying “from dust you are and to dust you shall return..
  So it is to “be renewed in your mind”  which is our heavenly matter (Romans 12) because God is in perfect control being. Even as it says of the Son that “all things were made by Him and for Him”. And they are. When God is done with this creation and His work of His offspring then “all that can be shaken will be shaken for the eternal to remain” and “the earth and all it’s works shall be burned”. That’s it. No more time and matter.
     The redemption of creation and the return to Gods initial plan is not played  out like the 2nd coming purveyors suppose as though God is not in control. It is that creation reflects to man the condition of his own heart as creation was designed. And it is to the tried transfigured and trued redeemed person that creation treats favorably.
    You see God did not curse man or creation, but just explained to him what happens when your actions take you away from Him. Much like swimming against the tide. Also like driving your car across lanes of traffic instead of between the white lines of trust and faith, there were negative consequences accidents and death.
     So yes the fall was in the Spirit of the mind. Even as the Son of Cain said “I will be repaid 70 fold” God did not say that. This is why “if our heart does not condemn us we will ask anything and receive it because God is greater than our heart. This is the place of redemption and restoration.  The heart, mind and spirit.  It is our own plurality that is restored being made in His image.
     And for those who look for another savior? Well the fall happened without lightnings and earthquakes and cataclysmic activities because it happened in the mind of man, in the spirit. And this is the place of redemption. This is our Galgatha. The battle field of the mind. To overcome the “spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience” which we once were. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God, pulling down strongholds and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”. You get that? It takes place in the heavens of the mind being greater than the heavens of the 2nd coming purveyors. Being the “greater is He who is in you” and the kingdom in you that cometh not with carnal observation.
    This is where Adam and Eve failed. This is the place of redemption. Not a new physical heaven and earth but a way of thinking saying “Be ye transformed (transfigured) by the renewal of your mind”. God is spirit and God is truth and so is our redemption for the things of this creation just mirror and teach in contrasts to get us there. But when that which is perfect has come, that which is in part is done away with “. 1 Cor13- We overcome.
    So weather or not Adam sinned, God had all the variables worked out. Is He not the King of kings and the Lord of lords?
    Since these things are so, we need not wait for a cataclysmic event called the second coming,
with fire and brimstone to judge humanity. Wasn’t the message of the Christ child “peace and goodwill toward man”? This is currently Gods posture toward humanity. God is in perfect control, and the plan of creation and redemption works just fine now just as God planned from the beginning . “To each in their own order” 1 Cor 25
    It is through the cross that all the curses of creation are reversed and we are redeemed. It is as we learn and appropriate this that we are victorious over negative thinking that brings curses. The cross is the spectacular event to look at and not a 2nd coming as it says in scripture. That God redeemed all things to Himself through Christ, weather things in heaven or on earth, powers or principalities “.
     1 John 5.  Who is the one who overcomes the world? The one who believes that the word is the Son of God”.
     Yes! No earthquakes, no rapture, no tribulation, no cataclysmic event but belief. The thing Adam and Eve gave up and believed another. It’s that simple, if you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth you shall be saved “. This is the saving and the right savior.  As we are re spirited at baptism and re-pluralized by receiving “the unction of God that abides in you” that we are allowed full fellowship with the living God. As Paul said “be ye reconciled to God the Father, for He made Him who knew no sin to become our sin for us to become His righteousness “. So we are. And we learn to till His garden of the spirit. We reap the fruits of the spirit which are attributes of God Himself for us to be more godlike, meaning godly. Like Him. A child of glory. Begat by glory by the “Lord of glory”. 2 Cor 3.18 This was mans calling and purpose before the fall and the need to be re spirited with the breath of God like Adam.
     We are saints which comes from the word “holy” which is a word that means the carnal mind is washed clean and dressed with the invisible attributes of God. It is as Jesus said “he who has seen Me has seen the Father”. And of Paul that “we were circumcised from the sin of the flesh by Gods invisible hand ” and not a future rapture or death.
     It is the second coming mindset that is a belief system of denials for believers who cannot except the gospel message that says that “God was in the Christ reconciling the world to Himself”. And also that “He has redeemed all things through the blood of the cross, be it powers or principalities or things present or things to come weather on earth or in heavens. It is by the blood of the cross, which is His final act of saving, meaning salvation, by the message of the gospel that repeats these things in every generation. To Him who is seated waiting for his enemies to become his footstool” as you believe and appropriate these truths.  This is the power of Gods word, the saving through the gospel and no other. Your enemies can be your footstool too if you can receive these things learn what an overcomer is. Does not scripture say that “we are partakers of the divine nature “?
     Do not fear little flock.  God has given you the kingdom.
“The Kingdom of God is at hand “.

Our Obstacles are for the Glory of God

Download PDF
“For what shall separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus neither height nor depth nor principalities or powers nor any other creative things shall separate us from the love of God”.
    It is the obstacles that we face in our life that are presented to us for the glory of God to be revealed, even as Christ had said with Lazarus when asked why he remained dead for 4 days? Jesus said to his disciples “didn’t I tell you that if you only believe you would see the glory of God?” Many of the obstacles or seeming contradictions faced by Christ in the scriptures was met with his words of “this is happened for the glory of God to be revealed”. It was that he would speak a word, and the word that He spoke would become the thing that he said. In this way he showed himself to be Son of the Father by doing deeds of the Father. It was the glory of God manifest through His Word as He spoke to the obstacles be it by death or principalities and powers, or things present and things to come, it was Christ who spoke a word and that obstacle became beat like pulp. It became “chaff in the wind”.
  So for us too. We meet these obstacles head on with the word. And this is as it was said “speak anything in My Name and I we’ll do it”. It is as we speak to the obstacles with a word of faith that “we bear much fruit” that “the father is glorified when you bear much fruit”. In this way we share in His glory and we experience His Glory in doing so. It is to be able to speak a word and the thing become the thing that we say like God th Only Begotton do. This is the shared glory of God given to us in Jesus Christ to the elect of God who are called. “For whom He called He justified, and whom He justified He Glorified. (Romans 8. ) These are the chosen and faithful being sanctified and ready for every good work. And the only eternal work is a God work. And the only work God does is word for “all the earth and all it’s works shall be burned for the eternal to remain”. (2 Peter 3. ) So these obstacles we face?  This is our moment for glory to shine forth. As a “kind of first fruit of His creation” we show the likeness of our Father. To speak a thing to be and it becomes the thing we say. Wow! Glory to God!
This is how we show ourselves as the “fullness and stature of the Son of God” “to a perfect man” for “of His fullness we have received”. As James says “it is a perfect man who can bridle his mouth”? Because the mouth is the tool of the trade of the Heavenly Father, word. Also displayed in the man Christ Jesus who said “greater works shall you do that the Father may be glorified”. So we do. Why? Because “as He is… so are we in this world”. And if we are mature, we are word. And our words become real. This is to our glory, to His glory. A reciprocating glory that we mutually participate in now. Like Paul says in 2 Thes, That “we are called by the gospel for obtaining the glory of Jesus Christ”. It is not gifted to us at a 2nd coming but to the faithful “through the gospel”. That is why “Christ is seated waiting for His enemies to become His foot stool”. Because the battle is ours. He is finished, He gave us the tools, now we strive to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of me”. Which is??? To be like Him, word. “In the beginning was the word, the word was with God, and the Word was God”. In this way we keep His Word is to keep Him to fulfill this verse… If you keep My commandments you shall ask what you want and it shall be done for you. Ask anything in My name and the Father will do it.
But the 2nd coming jesus is not a winner yet because he must still fight for planet earth and rapture you? This is another saving act from a different savior than the Savior I know who already gave me the victory and we just showed you how to do it. You take the words passed onto you through the gospel and add faith and patience to it. “But we have seen and testify that God has sent His Son as savior of the world”.
   This is why “you shall be judged by every word you say”. This is usually seen as a future event of judgement at a specific point in time. But it is because we are made in the image of God that even as Isaiah spoke that;
“Woe is me, for I am undone!
Because I am a man of unclean lips,
And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the King,
The Lord of hosts.”
Isaiah understood that to the degree that you speak forth falsehood, it stifles your ability to speak forth things into being like a perfect man. This is being a new creation. This is our need to cooperate in our sanctification. “Come out from among them and I will receive you” Said the Father, “I will b to you a Father and you shall be My children” so that we “Cleanse ourselves from all filthyness of flesh and spirit perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
 “For it is out of the heart (by words) that a man speaks that defiles himself” that we need to worry about. For us to speak a thing to be is directly related to how clean our heart is. This is why “to the pure all things are pure” for that is what they speak. But to those who are defiled? They see gloominess and darkness because that is their world.  and also the mirroring of creation back to them and it is not so much the sins of murder and adultery and such of the carnal nature that keeps you from doing this as much as it is lying speaking slandering murmuring Ford is not what goes in a man that the files a man but it’s what comes out of a man that defines a man and this is what that scripture means if we honor God in truth in all that we do regardless of how it may or may not affect or benefit us that we do not like the truth in our favor for personal gain to this one the person will be gifted with the Word of God so dealing with truth and honesty with our neighbors in our co workers is key as Paul said I reach out to lay hold of white Christ laid hold of me and to the degree that you have a so to put on truth is to put on another attribute of Jesus Christ in this one is.
So then my sojourn-ship here is my internship in doing the works of my Father. Like Jesus did so that it is true for me that “as He is, so are we in the world”. Like when Jesus said to the religious leaders of that day “I do the deeds of My Father, you do the deeds of your father the devil”. Showing why sin is unbeleif even as it says of the Holy Spirit who convicts of sin because they do not beleive in Me ” said the Lord. So too for us. Our actions motivated by fear and doubt yeild unrighteousness because “fear involves torment. He who fears has not been perfected in Love”.

Redemption pt 6, Restoration of All Things

Restoration of All Things

We have spoke of redemption of all of creation that was portrayed by Christ wearing a crown of thorns symbolizing that redemption of creation happened at the cross and no longer is the curse of the earth yielding “thorns and thistles” in effect. So for those in their Adamic fallen nature? They are still subject to the curse of the earth yielding thorns and thistles. But it is for the redeemed person in Christ that the curse is reversed that receives a restored relationship with earth.
    We also discussed that in the fall of Adam all of humanity fell because it lost the Holy Spirit of God  and interaction with God. That having eyes to see and ears to hear in the here and now of time and matter, they are now void of eyes to see and ears to hear in things of God and thus become unresponsive or dead to the invisible things of God, the ever ready always present invisible kingdom of God  that is always at hand being “the kingdom prepared from the foundations of the world”. (Matthew 25.34)
    We speak of the redemption that “God was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world to himself”. That in the reconciliation of the world, He reconciles fallen man by raising them back up. They become restored to the creation itself, and they become un-dead to the invisible to the naked eye God.
     So fallen man by necessity needs to be unfallen and  lift it up. This is to be “quickened” and “made alive”. This is what we have “In Christ” and this is the true restoration, redemption and resurrection. Resurrection is a reversal of the fall of Eden and those who have been resurrected from the fall being among the redeemed which is to be restored back to the beginning, having been returned to the original purpose that Adam lost, this is the redemption of God “in Christ”. This is as scripture says that ” the first man Adam became a human doing, and the last Adam, Christ became a life giving spirit. And “all things become new old things have passed away”. That those being found awakened to the Spirit are lifted up and resurrected to the original purpose.
     So God’s original purpose was when Adam was in the flesh but he failed. The man Christ accomplishes what Adam didn’t do for us. So for us the redeemed, we should not think it strange to be no longer fallen but resurrected in our current body for this is the whole teaching of Romans and in chapter 8 it says “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you”. This is the resurrection.
     So if we understand the true concept of the resurrection we don’t need to wait to be raptured or to die and to receive something after the body is gone. For Adam had his body before he fell and we have our body after we are raised. If this were not so why is it that for thousands of years people at their baptism professed to be dead and raised again in Christ? They professed to rising up and receiving the Spirit of God and becoming new. Isn’t this what it says in Romans 6?  “As were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 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 “if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also are in the likeness of His resurrection”. It was Christ on earth who showed us it is possible to refect the glory of God in our current humanity so you can too.
    There are some of those who look to another day of another teaching and another spirit of another resurrection and another newness of life in some future not yet existing Kingdom of God on planet earth. For these people the scripture is true that says that “they like a dog return to its vomit and like a pig wallowing in the mire” these return to their old nature. That false gospel has no lasting transformation, but just leaves you discouraged and waiting.
    So for us who receive the gift of God? We must understand the redemption of all things and the redemption of our body the redemption to the Father and the redemption of creation to ourselves to Gods original purpose. We become like Him, becoming godly. And this is all done through the gospel by the power of the cross. Of this we receive godliness by the working of faith. By believing, confessing and professing our association “in Christ” and not with the Adamic fallen state but like Him before the fall back to the beginning. This is us each individually being raised back up from the fall.  22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. 23 But each one in his own order:(1 Corinthians 15. 22-23) And this is not speaking of a collective resurrection like the 2nd coming purveyors suppose but “each one in their own order.
   This having happened we can get on with God the Fathers original intent as Psul said “I plead with you, be reconciled to the Father”. It is for man to properly reflect the glory of God while we are in our human body for scripture says “as He is, so are we in the world”.
  God did not put the prize out of our reach to be only attained only when the body dies. Or why are we suppose to strive, to put on, to receive and attain, to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of me? Is not the purpose the gospel teaches;  13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, And this is what the 2nd coming gospel does, tosses to and fro. Why does scripture say that we are being transformed by the spirit to be glorified.  And why did Christ say ” Father the Glory you have given me,  give to them that the world may believe”? Did the Father ignore that request?
   If we can understand this we can see that if God wiped out creation as we know it like the 2nd coming seekers expect, then He would have to build another earth just like this one to complete His work in you. And he would have to put you back in a body like what you have to do the same thing. That would mean He made a mistake when he said in the beginning of creation that “it is good very good” that He was blind sighted and overlooked the probability of humanity doing exactly what it did. It fell. His provision of “good, very good” included accommodations for the fallen and redeemed.
    The redemption of all things is not a carnal fest visible to the naked eye through some 7 year tribulation, for all the mysteries of God happen “in the twinkling of an eye” unnoticeable to the carnal senses. It is by the reversal of the polarity of the spirit from a cursing back to blessing, to the way it was before the fall that fallen man losing the Spirit of God is now subject to “the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience”. It is to the re-spirited man that creation blesses. But the spirit of the unregenerate man? They receive the curses from the earth. But To Christ the mediator of the New Covenant, that speaks better things than the blood of Abel”. Why? Because the ground for Abel cries out death, but the blood of Christ through the eternal spirit testifies of life and the reversal of every curse to reinstate eternal life.
     This is the redemption of all things.
Repent for The Kingdom of God is at Hand, immediate, in the twinkling of an eye, the Kingdom that “cometh not with observation” Luke 17.20

What a prophet is

Download PDF
The definition of a prophet today is one who speaks forth things to come, like floods and catastrophes and future events but these are all fear based messages.
The purpose of the prophet is to make plain the invisible things of God, to point to that element. But a prophet is still just a man. When he comes to the end of himself, he/ she is just human and of the nature of Adam, and that is as far as they can take you This is why they describe things in terms understood by Our Adamic nature of things understood by the perceptions of sight and sound in things of time and matter. This is why Christ said that He only spoke to them in parables, that “without a parable spoke He not to them”. And the prophets were also spoke in parables and used descriptions of the age of time and matter. But to us who have the spirit it has been given to understand parables and their invisible lesson. “For many prophets and righteous men have desired to see what you see, and hear what you hear but have not”. They all came to the end of themselves and the culmination of their carnal nature. At the end of the carnal nature is death and death is associated with bad things like decease and famine and drought and catastrophe. That is why they end up there, but we are in the spirit.
But as Christ said in His earthly mission “where I go you cannot go, but you shall follow me afterward”. He took on the catastrophe due to humanity for as the place “you cannot go” and He took on to Himself to the unavoidable consequence called death to all except those who except the free gift of God being His Son, “for he who has the Son has life” and “whosoever believes in Him has passed from death to life” and because He took on our catastrophe, we get a ‘get out of jail pass’ and move passed judgment to life in the spirit. It is in this way that “death has no dominion over us” to the one found “in Christ” which is unlike the one who is “in Adam”.
It is the carnal religious mind that is stuck in the bondage of the elements of creation and time and matter and subject to fear that just cannot except the free gift of the spirit of God and live. Their own proof is that they look to the the earth and see death, destruction and pending doom. But “perfect love cast out fear,for he who fears has not been perfected in love”. It is fear that motivates the need for the safety net of ‘what ifs’ for their heart keeps asking ‘has God really said?’.
It is also said that “all the law and the prophets were until Christ”. Not so much the man Jesus, but that invisible part in which He embodied. His spirit. And this is the Revelation of Christ, being life of the spirit passed the doom to the place where He said “you shall follow Me after”. So this is what we do now, Follow Him on the other side of death, the place past the prophecies, doom, death and destruction. Like He said to those at the tower of Shiloh. “Unless you repent this will likewise happen to you.
It is the carnal man that is subjective and subservient to the elements, a position he was not designed for, that it is to us who are redeemed by the renewal in Christ being born anew in the spirit so that now the elements serve us. This is our rightful redeemed nature. And this is what glorifies God that we be like Him in this way. “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”? But not us anymore. “Old things have passed away, all things become new”. And the all things new are a renewed thinking. A re-scripted newly formatted mind of the spirit, restored to thinking like God of His creation to “it is good, very good”. This is why scripture says ;
15 To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled. 16 They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him,being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.
 
 
This is what every soothsayer and prophet does. They declare the judgment due to their carnal nature and expose the need for the grace of God and His gift of life in the spirit, our new nature that co-rules “with a rod of iron” and not driven by the lower nature of fear and the outcropping of actions associated with the carnal mind, being a religious nature that “knows not God” as invisible but as one who is not in control, that must wrestle with mankind and earth and subdue the enemies by another visitation for “He is seated waiting for His enemies to become His footstool”.  He has clearly displayed His Glorious abilities to speak a word and the word becomes the thing that is said and “God has spoken through His Son” the thing is spoken. So why must He come again as though He will use Hands like a man or maybe nuclear weapons or whatever. These are all silly carnal notions and insults when His word can do or undo anything anytime He wants weather you see or believe, for it is faith in the unseen that pleases Him that you reject and expect some carnal fest called “the 2nd coming”. But to us it is said;8 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,[a]who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the conclusion of sin and death.
 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned putting completely out of business sin in the flesh,
 Meaning for those of us who are  re-formatted with these truths, our old man is completely out of business and the new man is completely operational now and need not a second coming jesus because we put on Christ now. He is word.
This is why we do not need a 2nd coming Jesus. That is a hoax drummed up by the carnal mind that is stuck in the parables that were fulfilled in Christ by His mission when He came “in the likeness of sinful flesh”. For “all the law and the prophets were until Christ” in the flesh. This they deny. They need to see catastrophe and destruction and witness a death with their carnal senses to believe but “it is a wicked and adulterous generation that seeks signs” meaning physical proof. “He is a double minded man. Let him not think to receive anything from the Lord”.
It is the spiritual fact more certain than any sub-strait of matter that entrance into the Kingdom of God is only attainable after destruction and death to which all the law and the prophets attest to (2 Peter). That is why the new life for us”In Christ” must happen now, “Today if you hear His voice” and why one must be born again of the spirit. To see the Kingdom of God and to enter it (John 3) And this happens to those judged in this age tried by the Holy Spirit and who have put on the new man who is identical in purpose and function as Christ (Colossians 3.10) and need not be repeated to the unbelieving 2nd coming seekers.
So a prophet speaks in parables, but he who is least in the Kingdom is greater than a prophet because “we speak what we know and testify to what we have seen”. Do you receive our testimony?
The Kingdom of God is at hand.

John 3 term “Born again”

Download PDF
John 3.3 unless one is born from above he cannot see the Kingdom of God.
John 3.5 unless one is born of the water and the spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.
John 3.6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the spirit is spirit”.
John 3.8 The wind blows where it wishes and you can hear the sound of it, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it goes. So is everyone born of the spirit.
 
The term being “born again” or correctly rendered from the Greek “born from above” is something that even fooled the religious leaders of that day. As Christ said to Nicodemus “are you not the teacher of Israel and you do not know these things?”
Here we are again in a time when this phrase is more of a cliche, more of a catch phrase without any real association with it’s true meaning. And that is? To see the Kingdom of God, and to enter the kingdom of God as is evident by the scripture just quoted. Most people who say they are “born again” have never seen or entered “the Kingdom of God”.  Most of them speak of a kingdom coming later and they call it “the 2nd coming”.
 I would not try to say that you are not born again, but I challenge you look at that phrase in light of these scriptures and judge for yourself. Can you see the Kingdom of God? Can you enter the Kingdom of God? Maybe you can and you don’t even know it, but it may be that you have the second coming Jesus concept stuck in your mind keeping you out of the Kingdom now because they say Jesus must come back to establish His Kingdom as though there is no Kingdom yet, and He is not a King yet, and this is their grievous error. They refuse to give Christ the Glory due His name.
There is laid out in the book of Genesis in creation the law that “kind begets kind”. “each according to their kind”. There are things begat in the sea, on land and in the air, but the one of which we speak is spirit. “for that which is flesh is flesh and that which is spirit is spirit. Ye must be born again”.
   Yes! You must be born of the invisible to be invisible being holy and called a saint, to be godly meaning God like,  the element un noticable to human perceptions. And we do this by the tool of faith being our invisible embelical cord to the “invisible immortal eternal,  the only wise God “.
James 1.27 We are begotten by the (invisible) word of truth to be a kind of (invisible ) first fruits of His (invisible ) creation”. And this transformation happens now in this age of time and matter “while it is called today, if you hear His voice” in which we put on the (invisible) eternal attributes of Christ gifted to us through the gospel and not with held  for a (visible) second coming as many suppose.
This is another reason to run away from the 2nd coming gospel. Or as Christ said to the Pharasees who asked when the kingdom would appear and He answered them saying “the Kingdom cometh not (to the visible carnal eye) with observation”. Christ in turn told the people “do not follow them”. Christ also said of the religious leaders that ” they are the blind who lead the blind into a ditch” and that is what the second coming gospel does. It derails your salvation and puts you on hold waiting for something  (visible) to appear.
This is why you shouldn’t wait because “the Kingdom of God is at hand “. Do you see the Kingdom of God? Do you enter the Kingdom of God?  Are you really born again?

Godly Hope = godliness

Godly Hope = godliness
 
 

Hope is a word generally used as a term of a desire or an anticipation. “I hope it’s sunny tomorrow”. It conveys a longing for an uncertainty. Maybe it will be maybe it wont. Time will tell. You can’t do anything about it. So there is a desire but no plan or action to pull it off. You cannot participate.

 
But this is not so for those who have their hope in Jesus Christ. It goes like this. 
 
 
Colossians 1.5 5 because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel,…23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel,… I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, 26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. 27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which[d] is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. 29 To this end I also labor.
 
Here Paul is speaking of this hope of being god-like that is not allocated to be realized at a 2nd coming, but now through the gospel. And here is the missing element for most of us is that a godly hope is not a dead hope as though we cannot participate in the outcome like the weather. “I hope it will be sunny” then click your heals like something will happen? But we participate, work at striving to accomplish and obtain in our hope so that we see our hope transform into the thing we hope for… We attain. Like Paul said “to the degree you have attained, so walk ye in it”. This is what we do. We attain Christ-like-ness in the here and now. This is our transformation “into the self same image from the glory to the glory”. 2 Corinthians 3.18
 
It is like this Romans 8.24 “We are saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope”… then we “eagerly wait for it with perseverance”. You cannot persevere to change the weather. A godly hope is a reaching out, a striving and a working towards a thing. “We are not as one who beats the air, or shadow boxes” as it says in 2 Corinthians.  And what is that thing for the one who has a mature faith in Jesus Christ? The hope is the Glory of God. And here once again as we have said before, what the 2nd coming gospel does is it derails you from persevering and participating in the accomplishing this hope to attain and tells you it is later. That when you see Jesus as a new man then poof! you will be like Him automatically. This becomes a new gospel of a new day to be accuated some day in the future. But it says in Colossians 1.23  if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel”. And the gospel of?
Christ in you, the hope of glory. And if Christ is in you He inspires you to put Him on and become more and more like Him. To strive to be like Him and His several invisible attributes gifted to us through the gospel for our transformation. For what? To be godly. For it is Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ”. And this is not the Christ seen as a man who gives you something at a second coming when you see him robed in white with wings coming through the clouds with a bright light behind him, but now through the gospel. We strive (a tool used in godly hope) “for the attaining of all the riches and full assurance, understanding and knowing the mysteries of God In Christ in whom are hidden all His treasures” not to be revealed to us at some second coming no, but now through the gospel. His word we absorb in the here and now, Him being “the bread of life come down from heaven that gives life to the world (John6). We hope, we strive, we attain to “all the riches and full assurance of this mystery. (Col 2.2) And the mystery once again is Christ in you, the hope of glory, for this we strive to attain.
And Paul emphasizes further here with a stern warning saying (2.4) Now i say this lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words”. And that is what the second coming gospel message does…. It steals you away from striving and reaching to acquire and obtain through this living hope and gives you a dead hope of another coming Jesus to come and do something for you as though scripture is dead words on paper that leaves you hanging there waiting for another savior. What you expect a 2nd coming Jesus to come and do for you has been done by the first Jesus and mapped out for you in scripture. We call it the Gospel.

Redemption in 3 parts, Provisions

Download PDF
     God the Father upon completing creation at the end of the six-day scripture says  “and God saw everything that he had made and behold it was good, it was very good.  And the evening and the morning were the sixth day”.
      “Good, very good”  is what we have in Christ in understanding the redemption of the world to our selves “for God sent His Son not into the world to condemn the world but that through him the world would be saved” and “we have seen and testify that God has sent His Son savior of the world “. So in the faith it is saved and it is these verses we refer to now that are true for us that “creation is good very good” for those redeemed in Christ. This is our current theme and it is another important principle for us to understand in the work of God in us.
      In Genesis it is also says that “God made every plant of the field before it was in the earth and every herb of the field before it grew, for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth for there was no man to to the ground”.
      Meaning creation in the way that we know it was pre-designed to serve the purpose of man. It is for the man that is imaged in God. You see for “the Lord God had not cause it to rain upon the earth for there was no man to till the ground” That without man there was no need for provisions. That it is necessary for the provision to come forth when man needed and God for – ordained the provision before you recognized that you needed it.
      So this is what we need to understand little flock. That our provisions are there for us at the time that we need them. Think of the manna. “Gather ever day as much as you need, and hold none over for the next day”. That God being our supplier and provider has given us everything that we need at the time that we need it as confirmed in 2 Peter saying that “God has given us everything that pertains to life and god-like-ness”. That if we wait for the provision first, we may not accomplish anything by faith. This is “walking in the spirit” and “following the spirit”.  For seeing the provision is a fact and not of faith. Like Abraham was “called out not knowing where he was going”.
        It is the carnal mind that needs a fact but faith in God is believing the invisible as being more relevant then the visible. For we understand all things are made out of the things that are not so that the things we see come from the invisible (Heb 11)  and this is done how? By word. By every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. So if God said something? That should be sufficient enough for us to take a step forward into the invisible for isn’t that where everything came from anyway? “Let there be light” and it was so?
      This concept of the provision being there by faith when you need, can be compared to the proverbial “hand in the cookie jar”. You have to let go of the cookie to get your hand out of the jar to get something better. You cannot have the cookie anyway but we still hold on to the old things of the old life and wait for the transition to physically appear. This is un-faith for “it is a wicked and adulterous generation that seeks after a sign.  so then what do we do now?
      Well it was Abraham the father of faith who was told by God to go forth into the land saying “as far as you can see from the east to the west and the north and the south see I have given it to you”. Of this Abraham is described by Paul in Romans of being heir of the world, and if Abraham is our Father of faith that we pattern ourselves after, as he should be, then we do the works of our fathers, then we too are heirs of the world as Abraham. (Romans 4.13)
       We talked about this too of Moses who having passed through the Red Sea, being found in the desert, had the opportunity to paint a portrait in the desert with living waters. And of Joshua the Lord said to Joshua “every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you as I said to Moses”. This is the same thing he meant with Abraham and it’s the same thing he means to us for those are heirs “in Christ” from whom are all things and to whom are all things. As Christ said “I have come into the world not to condemn the world but that through Me the world would be saved. And since He was sent the world is saved, restored and redeemed to its original purpose and intent and design for the redeemed, God saying “it is good, very good” for the curse is reversed in Christ. And it’s not that the curse is removed or just neutralized. It is reversed. A curse to a blessing. We are the blessed.
      So it is “in Christ”  through him that we “live and dwell and have our being” that the world is saved to. This is why Paul was able to say “all things have become new old things have passed away”. That now we are the new creation meaning that creation was restored to its original purpose intent and design of serving the redeemed man re-imaged like Christ. That “through Him the world would be saved”, and for us it is and it is perfectly functional in the way as it was designed to be from the beginning of being “good very good”.
  So we can know and understand that it is not only that the trees having been made during the six days of creation that did not grow because there was no man to need them. This is the rule for all of our provisions. We will get what we ask for like James says “you have not because you ask not.
     Now this is where faith comes in. If we understand that creation is redeemed to its original intent and that we are redeemed in Christ to our original intent of blessings and no curse, then we can understand that the original intent is that creation serves us. That we no longer work the earth with the curse as evident by thorns and sweating on our face. You see fallen man was cursed with the working in sweat, but not the earth. So now the redeemed man does the works of Christ who did the works of the Heavenly Father, our Father of glories who begat us to share in His glory which is for us the very character and the essence of who he is having access to the resources of which he is given the abilities of which he has which is speaking word and the word becoming the thing that is said. Wow! Did you get that? To Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than all we could think or ask according to the power that works in us? Amen, for “all the promises of God are yes and amen”. And this is true when? Now!Today! This is what it means that today is the day of salvation”. Being the redemption and restoration of God for us in the here and now and not at a second coming as some suppose.
     What an awesome gift and reward to the one that has this kind of faith, for the words of Christ to be fulfilled in you that says “ask anything in my name and it shall be done”. And” it is to the father’s glory that you bear much fruit”. His Glory is our glory.  Our fruit is not measured by the works of our hand but measured by the words of our mouth for it is said that; we should be judged by every word that we speak? And why would this be so?  It is said that “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” meaning that all have fallen from their purpose of displaying the glory and the likeness of God.  Were we not made him is in His image? As he said; he made man in His image male and female made he them? And it is in this way that the glory is revealed that Him being the Father of glory, that we the redeemed share in the glory, that we participate in his likeness by being word too. That our words being redeemed and restored, that our mind and our thoughts being transformed and that by being given the resurrection by receiving the habitation of His Holy Spirit this is the original intention of creation and this  is the gospel. Any other gospel any other message any other saving any other Savior that stopped short of restoring to you the glory of God being made in His likeness by us being “a kind of first fruit of his creation” in the here and now is incomplete. I Repeat, Any other gospel is only a stop gap measure and a retainer to keep you from the greater gift of God being God himself in the here and now.
     Like as it says in Romans that “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. We were created to reflect His glory. If not we could not be judged for falling short. The second coming gospel keeps you short of the glory for it “seeks another”. But we are redeemed from the fall of man and restored for the glory to work in us. Of us it is said that “God is glorified in that you bear much fruit that the world may know and believe”. Why?  “That the world (unbelieving) may know that you have sent Me”. And Christ said :Father the glory you have given Me I have given them that they may be with Us that the world may know”. Do you believe that word?
      It is for you to  learn to have faith and be restored in purpose and whole soul and body and to the Creator and His creation. Who rules your world? Satan like the 2nd coming gospel says? Or God? My scripture says “the whole earth is filled with the glory of God”. How about you? Do you see your original intent like before the fall, that is reinstated through the gospel?
   The Kingdom of God, as always, is at your fingertips. Being the restoration to full glory, fully glorified for “as He is so are we in this world”. And He is ??? Glorified, seated in full power. All things being subject to Him..  And Us?. For “He who overcomes, I will allow to rule and reign with a rod of iron”. So we do. This is the purpose of the gospel. To bring us “ to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;”. Just like. A duplicate. The second coming doesn’t do this. As Paul said”I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for it is the power of God for salvation”. From start to finish. You can’t add to that. Not even a 2nd coming. “It is finished”. Can you receive this? “To the degree that you have attained, so walk ye in it”.
   Blessings

Redemption in 3 parts, creation.

From Romans 8.19 creation is subject to futility but not willingly for the creation itself eagerly awaits the manifestation of the sons of God. For creation itself is delivered from bondage to the Liberty the sons of God now experience.
In Genesis at the fall when Adam and eve were cursed and creation fell, there was no visible spectacular event with lightning and thunder and quaking but with a word they were sent out and with a word it is redeemed.
  Here we have again another misunderstanding by the Second Coming seekers who expect a carnally spectacular event before they receive redemption. That the redemption of creation and the redemption of the body is a future expectation but it is redeemed by the renewing of our mind with the word. We put off the shackles of bondage and it is in this same way that creation itself is liberated because there is a spiritual polarity shift that takes place “from a curse to a blessing” in which we speak and write about.
 When Christ was crucified He was first crowned with thorns thus signifying the curse on Adam saying of creation “thorns and thistles shall the earth bring forth. It is here in parabolic form that we demonstrate that creation is delivered in Christ in this way for all who believe.
 That the purpose of redemption is to reverse all the curses including those about creation and that curse went to the cross so that those in Christ may experience the creation in the way the creator intended being “good, very good”. So creation being delivered is that it returns to its original purpose for the manifest new man who is renewed by the gospel as seen in Collosians 3 saying that “we have put off the old man and put on the new man that is re created in the image of Him who made us. But some wait for a rapture.
Jesus Christ said that in that day you will ask anything you will receive it who said my joy I give you not as the world gives you so there is joy in the world superficial joy to those who take comfort in their safety nets that they leave to protect themselves from the elements in the obstacles in life but the joy the sons of God have being the joy of the Spirit of knowing that creation itself is subject to us by word the we being seated victorious all glorious in the Son of God being like the Son of God speaking forth like the Son of God our joy is that our comfort and security is in following the Holy Spirit by faith once again faith is RM Bill invisible and Bella Colcord to the invisible God this is fake in faith is more substantial than anything of this age of time and matter

 

Redemption in 3 part 1? Born Again, Death and Resurrection.

Download PDF
Death is commonly defined by as a lifeless body. Something that is unable to move on its own having no responses and no senses, cold and limp. In a state of decay.
  But God defines death in different terms saying to Adam at the tree “in the day that you eat of it you show surely die”. We know that physically his body lived on for some 900 years but in the day that he ate of the tree he surely died because he lost the Spirit of God. For it was God having created Adam from dust then breathing in him stated that he became a living being but of Adam when he fell he lost the Spirit of God and became dead. Like Jesus said of the prodigal son “this one who is dead has returned to me and now is alive therefore cloth him with the finest garments and apparel”.
  This is what God does to us through Christ as he clothes us in Christ in the finest clothing and apparel being Christ himself, we put this on. This is our gift from God in Christ.
  The first man was breathed into by God and became a living being.  When that man sinned he lost the Spirit of God and became spiritually dead. And so all humanity is dead to the things of the immortal eternal invisible God and Gods boundless timeless eternal always ready Kingdom at hand. This is the purpose for the gospel.
  This then is the reason why man must be born again to be like Adam before the fall. He needs to receive the breath of God and become a human being, a living being. This is why Paul said we conclude that if one man died for all that all are dead. It is that man being born again, being born from above, is born of a new spirit. That’s what makes us new. We are then a new creation. That’s why Paul goes on to say “therefore we regard no one according to the flesh” that in Christ we are a new creation. “The old things have passed away all things have become new”. And this “becoming new” is us being restored to what Adam lost receiving the breath of God and becoming alive. Becoming alive as it is “in Christ” saying “he who has the Son has life he who has not the Son has not life”.
  So then the definition of what Death is, is not by human standards of being a lifeless body but according to God’s standards it is by not having his spirit and not having interaction with him through his spirit to His things in spirit for “God is spirit and truth and seeks such”. To become dead is to become separate from God in spirit. To loose the eternal spirit and return to the dust is mans destiny.
  Mankind was kicked out of the garden saying “He drove man out of the garden and placed a flaming sword which turned every way to guard the tree of life, Lest he eat and live forever.  Lest he become eternal. He lost the spirit and access to the fruit of life he became a walking dead. And so goes all humanity.
  All the animals are dead to God. And this is what man became in the fall. Intuitively he fell from the ability to interact with God because he could not see or hear Him. This is why scripture speaks to those who “have eyes to see and ears to hear”. It is the fallen man who reads scripture that turns the message into religious observances for the human to do. But it is us who “come to the light to clearly see that what is required of me is done in God. (John 3.21)
 It is through the religious observances that we can learn about God and redemption “but when that which is perfect comes, then that which is in part is done away with”. That which is perfect is a new understanding, and that is what expires the observance. As Paul described in Galatians that “we are under guardians and teachers until faith comes” not until a 2nd coming Jesus. There will never be a carnal conclusion like the 2nd coming gospel supposes. It was to the spirit that man fell and that is the redemption. Spirit. Scripture says that “flesh and blood will not inherit the Kingdom “. But our born again spirited man does rule over what used to be a lifeless body.
  This is the main conclusion in the book of Romans and chapter 8.6 to be carnally minded is death and  It is the spirit of Him who raised Christ from the dead, who now lives in you who gives life to your dead body. It was a walking dead but now raised in newness of spirit. That if we live by the mandates of the flesh we remain dead, but if by the spirit we put off the dead body and put on the new man, we live. And as many as are led by the spirit? These are Gods offspring. Why? Because “to be carnally minded is death, but to spiritually minded is life. (Rom 8.6) This is the resurrection.
  So humanity is divided into two groups. Those “in Adam”, and those “in Christ”. This is resurrection of spirit which is life and not the body like a carnal rapture.
  So some wait for the redemption of the body as though it is apart from the body. They want the body to be dead to become new but we are not renewed after death but now through the gospel. We put off the old and put on the new. ( Colossians 3.14)
  The gospel is the words of God being the anatomy of God broken down for human consumption for the carnal mind to be renewed in spirit and needs not a physical death to be true. (Romans 12.2) And if you can understand what we are saying then you will learn to understand that we are restored to that which is from the beginning when Adam had a right relationship with God, and his lower nature of dust had a right relationship with creation as God said “it is good, very good.
This is the true redemption, restoration, and salvation being the same thing described in different terms for our understanding, for our renewal of mind in the spirit.
  If we recieve Gods word, we are recieved by God that “where He is we may be also”. And God being in full control,  we being “seated with Him in the heavenlies” is a mindset of a new spirit who has power over the elements. It is as God said to Isaiah that “My word shall not return to me void but shall accomplish all that I desire. For you shall go out with joy and be led forth with piece. The mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing. All the trees of the field shall clap their hands”. And it does for the new man which is why Christ said “ask anything in My name and the Father will do it”. Ask for your joy to be full. And “the Father is glorified when you bear much fruit.
  Did not Paul say in Romans that the creation itself will be delivered from corruption to the glorious liberty of the sons of God? And it is if we learn to use the gift of God to us now in our new nature. If we learn to put it on. If we are “a kind of first-fruits of His creation and then we too are a product of “every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” and do the works of our heavenly Father which is word. We speak a thing and it obeys.
  Enjoy the redemption from God to himself, to our original purpose of displaying His Glory and His likeness in the here and now. This is true godliness. (God-like-ness) and this is true salvation.
  “Today! If you can hear His voice. Today is the day of salvation!”

 

Hebrews 3, Houses

Download PDF
HO– USES
From Hebrew 3 we see that Moses had a house and Christ has a house whose house we are if we hold fast to Gods invisible principles. You see the man Jesus had a house. Meaning Christ in His earthly mission and that was His disciples but of His eternal work? We are His living stones being built up a habitation of God in the Spirit.
 But the man Jesus knew as a young man saying ” I must be about my father’s business? Also knew his step father on earth was a parable by being a house builder, who also said “Father I have lost none whom you have given me except the son of perdition as it is written.
   If you are questioning the difference between the man Jesus and the eternal Jesus, Jesus put on man temporarily to become a parable and a picture of redeemed man, but He wasn’t redeemed.  You see He never fell. (Phil 2 and John 13) Then He says “I go to the Father and you see Me no more” and  “if I do not go the holy spirit will not come”. In this Jesus was trying to get the disciples to see him not in a robe and sandals but as He is in His original composition of spirit like they saw Him at the transfiguration being His true form.
  This is why Paul said “we once knew Christ according to the flesh but Henceforth know we Him no more.  And as Jesus stated “great works shall you do because I go to the Father ” . If we do not see Him as completely victorious over any and every obstacle or enemy, the greater works” you cannot do. This is why praying in the name of a second coming Jesus has such meager pay off.
  For this reason the Christ the Chief cornerstone and the 12 disciples are the foundation of Heavenly/invisible Jerusalem. They are the collections of stones that comprise the gospel being the kingdom of God, being built inside of us, that we being members and citezine of God’s house hold, if we have reassembled the invisible truths laid out in scripture we have the foundation to build. To assemble. To call. This is our building and our doing the works of thr Father.
 This same Jesus said “in my Fathers house are many abodes”. Yes many houses. And if we understand the callings like what Adam called the animals and the man Jesus called the disciples saying “you are Petros. And on this rock I will gather my called out ones. We are called out to be in, to call a thing to be. And if we are in Christ we have an invisible house comprising of His attributes to affect our sphere of influence. Like Paul said ” I will not extend myself beyond my sphere which especially includes you.  This is why it’s said of the Body of Christ being the called, are His body that fills everything everywhere. A collection of spheres, or houses, or abodes.
  Paul who also said of one to deliver such a one up to Satan for their spirit to be saved.  This is the same thing Jesus did with Judas. Paul and Jesus were stewards of their houses who gave a testimony for the Glory of God.
  So we are called, we hear the call, we ascend in thought form which is our spirit and we become callers, and we call. This is what fulfills in us James who says “we are a kind of first fruits of His creation ” That we are of His kind. To call things to come to be. Like Adam before his fall. Like the first of the redeemed in the man Jesus. Like Moses who was called but never experienced the promises (the promised land equals this invisible place in spirit and truth)
So when things are looking bleak do not murmur or complain but use your invisible character and express by faith word. Gods attributes and promises to us. Reside these for your words to become your reality.
You see God said of creation before the fall that it was good, very good. And to our new nature it is. For it is redeemed to us at our personal redemption unlike the 2nd coming message of a collective future saving when Jesus comes to save again and make another new heaven and earth as some falsely claim.  God sent His Son as Savior of the world and we did just that. He is the propitiation for the whole world. And 2 Corinthians 5.19 that “God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself “. Creation is working just fine, just as it was designed to. A 2nd coming Jesus does not do this or these verses I just quoted are lies, and that can’t be but “we have come to know and believe that God has sent His Son as Savior of the eorld. Do you? Can you? Because this is the gospel. Any other gospel that does not confess that Christ has come in the flesh is anti Christ.
If we can see redemption in this way then we can accept when Paul says “old things have passed away and all things have become new”. Then you can also see why it’s hideous to believe in the science of eschatology which is nothing more than a man made religion that re appropriates scriptured expired in Christ by matching them with news articles of the day. Every generation has said Christ’s coming is imminent and it is. The Kingdom of God is at hand, finished fom the foundations of the world.
You see there is a last coming in which the elements will disappear. It’s not a saving day and it us not a day when any part of time and matter survives “for anything that can be shaken will be shaken so that what is eternal and may remain”. And “the earth and all its works will melt with a fervent heat so that righteousness remains”. And what is it that remains? Well “all flesh is as grass to be burned in a fire, but the Word of the Lord endures forever.

 

We speak for the Glory of God to be revealed

We speak for the Glory of God to be revealed

Romans 8.27 For what shall separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus neither height nor depth nor principalities or powers nor any other creative things shall separate us from the love of God.
   It is the obstacles that we face in our life that are presented to us for the glory of God to be revealed. Even as Christ had said with Lazarus when asked why he remained dead for 4 days. Christ said to his disciples “didn’t I tell you that if you only believe you would see the glory of God?” Many of the obstacles or seeming contradictions faced by Christ in the scriptures was met with his words that “this is happened for the glory of God, for the glory of God to be revealed”. It was that He spoke a word and the word which He spoke became the thing that he said. In this way he showed that He was the Son of the Father by doing deeds of the Father. It was the glory of God manifest through His Word and it Glorified the Father to be imitated. Like it is said to us “the Father is glorified in that you bear much fruit” like the only begotten we image our selves like.
 As Christ spoke to the obstacles, weather it was death or principalities or powers or things present or things to come, Christ spoke a word and the obstacle became beat like pulp and became like chaff in the wind. So for us too. We meet these obstacles in our life head on with the word. Like Christ said at His temptation “for it is written…” In this He showed for us the way. And He passed this on to us with His discourse to the disciples saying” ask anything in My name and the Father will do it”. and as we speak it is in that we bear much fruit that the father is glorified and our glorification is to be able to speak a word, and the thing become the thing that we said like God Himself does. This is the shared glory of God given to us in Jesus Christ, to us, the elect of God who are “called chosen and faithful” being sanctified and “ready for every good work”. And the only good work is a God work in the only work God does is word. So the obstacles we encounter is our moment for our glory through adoption in Christ to shine forth the reflecting our likeness of our Father. To speak a thing and it comes into being. Praise God hallelujah amen.
This is how we show our selves as the fullness of the stature of the Son of God to a perfect man just like Jesus spoke and the thing became to be. We likewise speak and a thing becomes to be. This is a perfected saint. A mature saint who can do the things the Son did. As he said that”as He is so are we in this world”. And if we are mature, we are word. And our words become the things we say. In this way we prove ourselves to be “a kind of fruit of his creation it”. It is to our glory and to His glory, a reciprocating glory, that we mutually participate in His glory now.
You shall be judged by every word you say? This is usually seen as a future event of judgement at a specific point in time but it’s not. It is because we are made in the image of God that even as Isaiah spoke that we dwell in the land of unclean lips. To the degree that you speak forth falsehood, stifles your ability to speak forth things into being. Even as it says in the Book of James that “a perfect man can bridle his mouth”? This becomes Christ in us. The gift from the Father to be joint heirs with Christ. To that degree we are able to speak a thing to be. And if we are not good stewards with what is our own,, who is going to give us another? So then this is the purpose for our sanctification. For us to speak a thing to be, and it becomes a fact is directly related to how clean our heart is. This is why “to the pure all things are pure” for that is what they speak and creation mirrors that back to them. But to those who are defiled? They see gloominess and darkness because that is their view of the world, the mirroring of creation back to them. It is the lying speaking slandering murmuring that breaks you from this gift. For “it is not what goes in a man that the defiles a man but it is what comes out of a man that defines a man for it is out of the heart that defiles a man because from there proceeds murders”. And this is what that scripture means. If we honor God in truth in all that we do regardless of how it may or may not affect us or benefit us, that we do not lie for personal gain, to this one the person will be gifted with the Word of God. As it is written “be ye Holy as I am Holy”. So dealing with truth and honesty with our neighbors and community is key.
 2nd Corinthians 7:1 says to purify ourselves from all filthiness of flesh and spirit perfecting holiness in the fear of God”. And this is what we do. To the degree that we know and understand and speak truthfully is to the degree that we receive. Even as Paul said “I reach out to lay hold of white Christ laid hold of me” and “walk to the degree that you have attained” so to put on truth is to put on another attribute of God seen in Christ.

Deeds of the Father

Download PDF

We all have a surname and they are usually passed on to us by our fathers. In times past it was also the trade or business of the father that was his name too. With names like Gardner Baker Smith Shoemacker and such. It was common that a son took over the Fathers business. The name was what they did.

 

It is from the first father Adam that we work in the” sweat of our face”. We do physically exertive tasks and spend physical energy for a ways and means. But there is a better way and it is called “the works of our Heavenly  Father”. This is what Jesus did saying that he “came and did the works no man can do” being word, speaking a thing and it coming to be. This is what is given to us saints. We work with words too. We call a thing that was previously dark and murky and it is set in order by the things that we say. Like “Let there be light”.

 

Christ said “I do the deeds of my Father” which is word. By this He showed that He was the new creation and the Son of God . He did not work on the “sweat of his face” which was inherited through Adam. Gods works are word and our conversion,  or better yet our transfiguration, and is a product of what He Said “from the beginning” and not an end time reality some call “the second comin”.  This Word spoken  is spoken in every generation of this creation through the agency of the gospel to which I am appointed.

 

In this way we show who our father is being the fallen nature of Adam or,,, the redeemed man in the image of Christ being re image by Him for He is the word of God. And Christ said to us “In this the Father is glorified that you bear much fruit” and ” Whatever you ask the Father (using words) in my name that He will do”. It is to the Glory of God the Father that your word bears fruit for in this age as the proof that you are one of His and share in His Glory now. And it is Christ who “brings many sons to Glory ” who shares His very Glory with us to be glorified with Him in the here and now being “seated in heavenly places, in “the Kingdom of God at hand” being at your fingertips. We join “the spirits of just men made perfect”  And if we accept this invitation and strive for this calling by participating in sanctification, then we receive the full gift as a work of word and spirit.

 

John the baptizer said “there is one coming after me and He will baptize you with fire”. Sanctification is that fire that purifies and makes Holy and burns away the dross of this age so you too can say of the God of this age that “he has nothing in me”. This is “For those who come to the light to clearly see that whats required by them are done in God”. John 3.21

 

This is a totally foreign concept to someone who is looking to be raptured and rescued by another Jesus. But even Paul said that he “strives to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of him”. This is it and this is the “upward call of God in Christ” that we strive for now. This is not a 2nd coming reward for those holding on to their old Adamic nature by their fingernails saying “Jesus save me”

 

For us who are “living stones” the proverbial saying of ” chip of the old block” applies here. We are joined “in Christ” who is the Chief cornerstone. It is He who determines all the angles, the foundation being the 12 apostles on which we stand. And this is how we participate in Gods Kingdom now. Through the gospel.

 

Like it says in scripture that “man was made in the image and likeness of God”. Yes in design and function for the redeemed, sanctified by the Holy Spirit born of Word, and restored to that which is from the beginning where it is said of creation that “it is good, very good”, so we do.  For those of us who have a new name, we do the deeds of our father with that name.  His name is our name, his deeds are our deeds, we work like Him in His image and His likeness, in His design and function being just like Him. This is what  it means to be in Christ.  This is what Jesus was teaching when He said “go tell the disciples that I have ascended to my God and your God and to My Father and your Father”. So we tell you. And as Paul said “be ye reconciled to the Father” This is that. In word and deed. This is why “your shall be judged by every word that proceeds from your mouth.

“If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, you can ask for anything you want and it shall be done for you”. If we do this the power of God displayed in the resurrection of Christ abIdes in us too.

In light of this examine your works and sdk yourself. Who is your father?
