God does not dwell in symbols or things made of man’s devising. There are no man-made cities Societies or structures that are pleasing to God . But for the God of this age they are. And it is with these counterfeits that he steals the affections of the hearts of people who have rejected the cross of the Christ to implement other gods for them to be condemned, and Satan will fill full his role. He is the God of the vacuum. This is “the one who is coming is according to Satan with all lying signs and wonders with all lying signs and wonders if possible to deceive the elect”.
This is a duplication of the things people are associated with God through symbols, including the old Covenant. They reject “The Kingdom of God at hand” for another. Christ said “Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.” (Mt 16.23)
It is those who are born again that can see the kingdom of God, and those born from above can enter the kingdom of God, because they are Elementally different. For this reason the phrase, “the Kingdom of God is at hand” is of a ubiquitous nature. For this reason the phrase “the kingdom of God is at hand” can be entered anytime for us who are born again. For us it is our reality.
We now know it is blasphemy to associate any of Gods things as being carnal, visible or physical. For “The time that is coming already is when you will not worship God in Jerusalem, but in Spirit and truth” and so we do. Showing for us, the elect the contrast and the competition with “Spirit and Truth”.
We see Satan cursed from the garden saying on your belly thou shalt go, and now you shall eat dust all the days of the life. Satan was judged. He has never been allowed to operate outside of His God given task. He can he dust. God never lost control.
Humanity in a free fall from God does. The fall that was sustained by religion is rejected and we are in a free-fall.
When people reject God they don’t get the next best thing but the opposite. They get the counterfeit, mimicker and wannabe.
Scripture warns that there would be a time like the days of Noah when corruption would permeate every aspect of morality. When humanity would be in a free fall. The elect would understand and clamor to the things of God.
The Kingdom of God is at hand” does not mean it is eminent. It means Gods Kingdom is operational and active even now.
There are so many distractions from the faith and in the faith that it is easy to be distracted and get on tangents. There are many false and partial gospels to get caught up in.
Warning! Anything that stops you short of the conclusion of Gods work in you now, is to be partially saved and held in limbo. Even as Paul said “I seek to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of me”. So we must persist for the same cause lest we fall short of the grace of God. Paul also said “do not let anybody rob you of your reward”. You must learn to apprehend it. To “lay hold” of it.
The main theme of the gospel message is salvation. to be saved from this present age.To be completely refabricated in the heavens of our mind, which is the will of God. (Romans 12.1)
There is one single saving act that all Gods people look to for personal salvation from the wreckage of the fall of Adam passed on to all humanity. This takes place at the Cross of Christ where He took on Adams curse to redeem us from it defined at the fall. All the ills of mankind are the result of the fall of Adam passed on to us. This is the sin based conscience the gospel delivers us from.
The old covenant examples of sin sacrifices were physical pictures of eternal realities pointing to Christ “for us on whom the end of the ages has come”.
Peter wrote of the prophets of old, that they knew the things they had written, were not for themselves, but for us of things ministered by the Holy Spirit.
Moses instructed Aaron and Hur to hold up his arms while the people’s battles ensued. In the same way as long as Moses had his arms held out for His body to form a cross they were victorious. This was foreshadowing the coming of the Cross of Christ. We look back to the cross for the same reason, salvation. Any expectations of future battles and a coming savior rejects the cross, and spits in the face of the Spirit of grace that convinces us.
John 16.8 concurs. The Holy Spirit comes “to reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see (again) me no more (in a carnal way);
11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.” Meaning convicted and incarcerated to the will of God.
The cross is our crossover Point into eternity. For this reason we are baptized into the death of Christ in order to walk in newness of life. And just as we are baptized into Christ, we are also raised with him to newness of life through the working of faith. (Romans 6.4)
As long as the Israelite’s looked to Moses arms with his arms held, so we too are victorious when we put our faith in the out stretched arms of Christ at His cross. It was Aaron and Hur that held up Moses arms much like the Law and the priesthood support and looked forward to the cross. Christ’s outstretched arms is the demarcation between the Old and new covenants. Between death and life. Between heaven and earth. The old looked forward, and the New looks backward to this single saving act for the salvation of all would be believers past, present and future. We all have this same focal point. As long as the cross is held up as the single saving act on our behalf from God, we the elect are victorious.
This is why the cross is our singular focal point for salvation. For being energized and transformed. As long as we don’t set down this truth in search of another savior. Like maybe an end time savior? Like another coming Jesus? Then our focus is pure. As it says in John 3.17 that “God has sent His Son into the world to save the world” the first time He came.
Any salvation presentation that does not completely save, restore and preserve completely out of harms reach is incomplete. This is what the good news of the cross of Christ delivers. “On Him was laid our curse and by His stripes we are healed. On Him was laid the iniquity of us all.
Satan, sin and death are all defeated there as scripture testifies. Even the old testament law is nailed to the cross to neutralize its demands on us by Christ performing them for us. They are fulfilled. This is why there is no condemnation for those of us who walk not according to the flesh but the spirit. We acknowledge And live in this reality. (Romans 8)
For This reason scripture also says that “In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body [h]of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through (the working of) faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, who were (past tense) once dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive (resurrected) together with Him, having forgiven you all your sins (past and future) 14 having wiped out the [i]handwriting of requirements that was against us, (the law) which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 Having disarmed principalities and powers (Satan and his minions) He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.” (eternally more spectacular than any celebration or sporting event)
Note: If you are looking for another saving act to ensue on planet earth to save you and restore you to the Fathers provision, you are already distracted from the purposes of God in your life.
The cross is the singular focal point that defeated all of your enemies. Much like a big pinata when stricken all the goods come out. “God has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who calls us to glory”. (2 Peter 1) Now your battle is believing and appropriating this through the working of faith, which is your invisible response to the invisible God who already worked everything out through His Son at the cross to institute His last contract with us called “The New Covenant” now in effect for us to be reconciled with the Father in a way that Adam lost and the Law could not deliver.
Warning! There will be no other saving act from God but a fearful expectation of judgment. Another saving would also demand another sacrifice and another covenant. We are not returning to the old and there is no 3rd covenant mentioned in scripture. Ever.
The cross of Christ (His very name means “savior” the saving one and God with us) is the only focal point and cross over point from death to life with scripture saying “he who has the Son has life, he who has not the Son, has not life”. Christ also said “he who believes in Me has past from death to life”. And so we did. This is the only saving act and ongoing work of God in the spirit, to reverse the curse imposed by Adam on us by His departure of faith and trust in the living God on whom death and all deaths instruments have no hold and delivered to us through the cross.
Here is what Hebrews says about those who overlook the saving of the cross “28 Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? ” Let us not be found here.
Thank you Heavenly Father for sending your Son into the world to save us. I accept His reality and now live and grow in the knowledge of Christ. In this way we are “In Christ” our new man, and not “in Adam” our old man.
When God does things He does them once and He does them right. So for salvation, He sent his son into the world and He need not repeat Himself, or present a second coming saving because the first one failed.
In the book of revelation we see all the elders gathered around One, casting their crowns and giving total homage to that One. And that One is “The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”. What you don’t see there is Buda, Hari Chrishna, Muhamid, or a second coming Jesus. There is no other source, there is no other event than the cross. Even as John the Baptist said “here comes the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”. And so He did. Past present and future sins were grounded out then and only then. That is our focal point and Gods delivery mechanism for everything we need. Mission accomplished, victory is complete. The battle is over. Return to the Father.
“We are complete in Him who is head over all powers and principalities”. There is nothing else, and no one else who completes us. You can fortify yourself against the objects of your fears, but they are still there. There is only one true consolation. The fear of dying is the enemy. Fear is the poison that kills spiritual growth. Death is not so much a one time event of being dead, but a life driven by fear, that causes one to be dead to the provisions from God, gifted to us by His promises in His Son, to be truly free from all fears because “he who fears has not been made perfect in love because fear involves torment”. That’s the fruit given to those who reject Gods covenental provisions. So they turn to the world for comfort and forget the One who is in control.
We see the effects of fear in the parable of the unjust steward who collected funds from his employers accounts to protect himself against joblessness homelessness and fortify his retirement. He said “4 I have resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses”. He was afraid to be without so He created a back-up plan, a retirement plan. This is the product of self-consciousness. We see a brick wall and we don’t know what is on the other side so we protect ourselves against this fear. “He who seeks to save his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for Christ sake will save it”. This is what we are talking about. When you run to the end of your account avigo it is expired. However we can never deplete the resources of the almighty God who said “let there be light” and immediate it appeared without resistance.
There are many who pursue to save the planet and are ignorant of Him who can recreate this with the same simple words. They spend their time and their estimation doing whst they think is good when the good that they do is ignorance of him who did it all.
Romans 1 says of these people 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. Creation serves the creator just fine even now by mirroring to humans the conditions of their hearts.
“If you understand Gods never ending love, and his inexhaustible resources, you can relax your grip on this age and fall into the hands of the almighty God who eagerly awaits you to do so. God said “I will never leave you or forsake you”. But some just cannot have solace in that. So they depart to look for another. This is spiritual adultery that causes blindness to Him who is “at hand”.
So speaking of the wise steward”For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation thanthe sons of light.9 “And I say to you,make friends for yourselves by unrighteous[d]mammon, that when[e]you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home.”
Fear is the abscence of faith. Your faith has trade in value. But you must let go of your fears to recieve the exchange. If you truly trust God, you don’t need a dependance on a back-up plan. He who said “I will never leave you or forsake you” need not come back in the flesh a second time as a man to fulfill His Word in us. We are complete in Him, if you can receive it. The price was paid at the cross to reverse the curse and undo the fear based mind that started with Adam who said to the Lord “I heard your voice and was afraid”. God knew this would happen. Adam tried to cover it with a fig leaf, and people today are covering themselves with all kinds of things. But the words of job was, Naked I came naked I go, blessed be the name of the Lord.
The truth is God sees through all of our fig leaves and coverings anyway. For the word of the Lord is sharp and Powerful sharper than any two-edged sword dividing even bone and Marrow joints and ligaments it is a discerner of the thoughts of the intent of the heart. Then there is nothing hidden from the site with him with whom we have to do. Hebrews 4:12.
You cannot be afraid and trusting God at the same time. Consider the old women who donated her two mites, or in our culture, pennies. That was all she physically had, but for us the elect? She truly trusted in God and was spoken of for our guidepost. Not that God is asking us to live without money, but not to put too much trust in the uncertainty of riches.
The day we have the most money, in the day we have none should be equally joyous. Like the Widow with the two mites, she knew that the greatest joy comes Not from without but from within. Just as it said it’s in the book of James That every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of Lights in whom there is no variableness nor shadow of turning.
Christ “has delivered us who all our lifetimes had been subject to the fear of death”. We fear no more. And this fear of death is not a one-time dying but the continual dying and losing of self and the things we seem important. Do not be deceived we will all lose this body we eroniously call ourself and all its physical attachments. Every promise and provision from the god of this age will fail. You cannot stay here. You will lose that self by degree one death at a time. Or you will grow in the Spirit by degree one revelation at a time. And it is Gods word that is our food for our transformation. That we may participation of the things the God. It is the god of this age competes with the things of “hath God really said?” For our intellect to challeng. And if God said it, repeat it over and over until you get it. This is your struggle. It must become you.
Every time we come to this point in our inner dialogue where fear reminds us of our frailties, it is here that we can grab a hold of something Eternal by faith, or turn in fear and fortify the thing that’s dying.
Everything that we do for health care and for retirement to fortify our position here are provisions for the God of this age.
James says “5 Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you!2 Your riches [a]are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire”. Who knows my friend if you will be around to spend your retirement. It my temporarily give you peace of mind, but that might be all you get. We are instructed to store up things not on Earth where moth and rust in thieves steal, but the store up our Treasures in heaven.
For the Elect? “We have a more enduring inheritance in heaven”. He who loves the world, the love of the father is not in him. We put on the things that God has given us we see in His Son.
So when the scriptures say that “Christ came to deliver us from the subjection of the fear death? We put this on. This is how we appropriate this. At that moment of fear, we step on that fear and replace it with faith. We reiterate the promise that we have a more enduring inheritance in heaven.
If this more enduring inheritance was only something to be experienced later, then it would be harder to hold out for. But because Christ has suffered at the cross for us, having taken away all the criticisms and condemnations aimed at us from the law, he shows for us here that because the payment is rendered in full, the gift is activated. Gods Word has no time lapse. For this very reason not only does the fullness of the godhead body dwell in him, but we are complete in him who is the head over all principality and power. Meaning we are not waiting for something to come later. We are not exchanging one physical element for another physical. No these things are sewn corruptible raised Incorruptible in the spirit of our mind, which is the place of our new existence. “That which is flesh is flesh, that which is spirit is spirit. You must be born again. This is how that happens.
And as we’ve spoken many times before that the heavens that are carnally known as being filled with stars and galaxies, is not as large as the expanse of our mind which grows bigger and bigger by the expansion of the Holy Spirit. And even as a worm cannot understand the life and flight of a butterfly, so then those who are driven by fear and controlled by fear and fortify themselves from that fear, cannot know or understand the life in flight of those who were born of the spirit.
Christ said “7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” Such are we. We are not fortified here of the promises of the God of this age for the supplements of this age, oh no. Every time we have a fear, we offer up to God his Son, the only sacrifice that is acceptable to Him. His son is Word. He was the word broken down forethe promises of God in Scripture to find root in the linings of your heart and soul.
When the fear comes you offered that promise to God showing you are the sons of God. In this way we are shown to follow the spirit of God and confirm our identity as his children. He came to deliver those who are all their lifetime subject to the fear and the fear of death, we no longer fear those things. We no longer spend our times or fortifying our self against the inevitability that we will lose our external self. Even now we participate in the richness of our inheritance of the things of God.
So if we lose ourselves in Christ, we gain everything Eternal. For what profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his soul? Nothing
It is those who have gained everything of this age that have nothing in the other. It is those of us who have no realiance in this age that have everything in the other age now. Just as Christ was seen by some as a peasant on a donkey riding up to Jerusalem, but He was filled with the fullness of the Godhead.
It is we who are walking incognito, have Gods things that the glory and the essence we participate in may be of God and not of ourselves. Even as scripture instructs “since 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, 11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised”. We are renewed in knowledge to be just like Christ in our understanding. Don’t let the peasant fool you.
We have traded physical things for invisible things and only those of us who are Spirit born again can master this.
For those who are looking for a physical mastery? It doesn’t happen. So many would say to us as well, who are you? And our answer to that is, not the man. Not what you’re looking at. These things are hidden from your site. Go on and sleep, the time is near.
If you are still looking to the Physical Realm and planet Earth for the manifestation of the kingdom of God you are going to be sorely disappointed. Why? Because “Eye Has Not Seen Nor Ear heard of the things that God has prepared for those who love him, but God has revealed them to us by his spirit.”
In today’s news there’s much talk about Israel and the Promised Land. But what is “The Promise Land”? And what is “Israel” according to the Bible? After all, isn’t it the scriptures that define this?
In Exodus 4.22 The Lord spoke to Moses saying “Israel is My son, My firstborn.” So we ask, is that Israel really God’s firstborn son? The answer is no, not that one. That old Israel only depicted and mimicked things that are invisible “in Christ”.
Paul said in 1 Corinthians 10.10 “Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, 2 all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, 3 all ate the same spiritual food, 4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.” Showing us here everything they did had invisible implications of eternal realities in Christ.
The same is true for us who are baptized, not into Moses, but “in Christ”. The place of the fulfillment of all things is in a person, and not a place. And because the Israelites of old ate and drank of Christ back then, we can understand He pre-existed the time He appeared to fulfill and expire them on earth.
Everyone who was in that Israel, were the recipients, or “joint heirs” of the things they shared. Just as with the New Covenant Israel. Everyone who is there “in Christ” are joint heirs of the things that belong to God. The old covenant Israel depicted physically, in a hands on way, for us to learn of the greater reality of things in the spirit for those who are born of the spirit.
To associate, eat and drink of the things in the spirit as we just quoted. To assimilate and put on the things God has provided for us to partake of Him. We no longer need the old covenant because it is fulfilled and we now have a better way called the gospel.
It is “the gospel message of Christ that is the power of God for salvation”. There is no other saving but by faith. “From faith to faith”. That is it.
Truthfully Christ, the first born son, is spiritual Israel and Gods only begotten Son that the Exodus 4.22 son of God shadowed. Those who are “in Christ” are in the place the Lord said to Moses “Israel is My first born son”. This is the place the promises of God are fulfilled. Those who are “in Christ” are in “The Promised Land” because He is the place of the fulfillment of all the promises of God, for those born of the spirit as seen here in 2 Corinthians 5. 17 Therefore, if anyone is “in Christ”, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things areof God.” They are heavenly and not earthly.
Even Joshua was a parable of the rest in the promise land as it is written in the book of Hebrews 4.8 For if [b]Joshua had given them rest, (by partitioning and dividing up the land) then He would not afterward have spoken of another day”. God spoke of another day because He did not want them to think of His things as being of earthly matter. We have a “heavenly calling”.
The New Covenant says “all the promises of God are yes and amen” where? “In Christ”. They are fulfilled “in Him” not in time and matter. In Christ all things take on their final form. This is the end gain and by-product of the gospel to the believer. All these things are accomplished by the word of God, and without the Word of God nothing will be. And what exists will remain untill the word has accomplished what God designed it to do. And ehen the things that were made in the time of creation are removed, then our inheritance will be without competition or distraction. We are receiving a kingdom thst cannot be shaken. “Everything that can be shaken will be shaken for the eternal to remain”. That’s it. Ahbadubada, thats all folks.
Our purpose is to be found “in Christ”. Or to borrow old testament nomenclature, to reside in Israel, in the promised land. The old depicted the new, but never becomes the new. The old has trade in value.
To be in “the promised land” and “in Israel”, and “in Christ” are all synonymous terms describing the same thing.
Those who are in Christ are in the new Israel, the only place the fulfillment of all scripture rests, as described in the New Covenant
Paul’s last words in the book of Galatians says this about the true Israel.
15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation. 16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.” Showing for us here precisely who Israel is. That we the elect are in the Promised Land, in Israel and “In Christ” of God and not a place on earth, but anywhere two or more are gathered in His name.
We who are “in Christ” are in the fulfillment of all that was written and spoken of both the old and the new covenants. These things belong solely to us who are “in Christ” the true Israel of God and Gods only begotten son. You need not look for another.
Scripture says of Christ that “in Him dwells the fullness of the God head body, and we are complete in Him who is the head of all powers and principalities and principalities”. Another physical Israel on earth only obscures the truth.
God can be articulated to the intellect but He cannot be constructed. Nor can anything be constructed to house Him or please Him.
For God to be made or have things manufactured for Him is an oxymoron. For the maker to need something made for Him is silly. God cannot be housed, manufactured or contained. He can only be articulated to the intellect. All the visual heavens cannot contain Him. However the Heavens of the mind were given to us for God to interact with us there. God can be known but He cannot be seen.
Articulation is an invisible tool for the invisible God to manifest Himself. This articulation is done only by words. It used to be played out in the Old Covenant culture by their practises. That too is conveyed to us today in word form, but the greater revelation is “The New Covenant”.
Scripture is God articulated through Word. As we adopt His Word, we are ourselves are the adopted.
In the beginning was the word and the Word was with God and the Word was God, this word is defined as God’s Son. Why? Because not only is He the exactitude of the Father, He also is an invisible pre-creation embodiment of the invisible that was before the beginning. But not a body with arms such as we have, oh no his arms are farther reaching than that. An embodiment not like our physical bodies, nor of a container of any sort for “It is in Him we live and dwell and have our being”, but of principles and truths. And it’s not just that historical references or things about God are passed on through verble articulation. Something much greater than this. Scripture contains the very genetics and DNA of God. It is for us to consume Gods DNA contained in the gospel passed on through revelation to our mind, for our Transfiguration from a created being to a spirit being. This is what it means to be born again. Born of the spirit and not of earthen elements.
An elemental understanding and an expectation of physical manifestations of the things of God is false because God is not made up of elements because those we’re made on the first 6 days. Neither are there any borders or boundaries or restrictions that God is subject to, including time and space. These were all created. Otherwise He would not be God. He would be subject to the created of which He governs. God is boundless in his ways unrestricted unfettered unhindered. To Him belong eternal glory amen.
No one has seen God at anytime but the Son declares Him with Master full speech and perfect articulation. If we see the Son as He truly is non-physical, we see the Father. A perfect reflection.
The Son said “He who has seen Me has seen the Father” was not talking about carnally visual aspects of the Father or a physical descriptives as being important or we would have a physical portrait with eye color hair color, stature in scripture for us to try to imitate. But we imitate word because that is His original self. His Words are His attributes in action.
When the son came to his own, his own did not receive him because they were expecting something made of time and matter. They saw not the Eternal value in the the man “who had no place to lay His head. “But to as many as received Him, not his carnal nature but His invisible one, to them he gave power to become his children even those who believe in his name”. That it is us who see him as he is in His natural element of Word, and we become like him (1 John 3.2.) We are being transfigured from the glory to the glory as by the Spirit to be sure (2 Corinthians 3.18). They saw not His glory for they saw the robes and sandals only. They rejected the invisible element that emitted from that One. “He is the light that shines into the heart of every man”. This is the true light the sun dimly mimics.
There are those who were expecting a man in kingly attire on a studly horse who were embarrassed by the peasant on a donkey. Some knew and called out ““Hosanna to the Son of David! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ Hosanna in the highest!”
The physical contrast became a distraction and they saw him not “who rides a sorel horse whose garments are dipped in blood whose name is, The Word of God”.
But those of us who know him as a contrast to the physical understood him perfectly. Those who understood saw Shiloh riding on the foal of a colt and that the reign of the Jews was over and the Old Covenant reached it’s conclusion. The Revelation of the Messiah and the Savior of the world (John 3.17) (Genesis 49.11).
Those who speak of him coming again in human form, know him not for He is already what they expect him to be later. And those who expect Him to conquer something later, do not know Him who said at the cross “it is finished”. Lo I am with you always even to the end. As though He becomes something different later. Paul said “we once knew Christ in the flesh, from now on we know Him like that no more”. He returned to His original construct of Word.
This is why God does not receive his testimony from man for he knows what’s in man. More carnal Fabrications. But we speak what we hear and testify to what we seen for we have eyes and ears of a different nature. We “endure as seeing him who is invisible”. He who was born a king need not become a king. The Son did not come here to become anything He wasn’t, but to prove who he already was. “He is the same yesterday today and forever”. Hebrews 13.8
John the Apostle was explicit that “we know him who is from the beginning”. If He is in the making or becoming something He could not have been from the beginning. This is proof that He is unchangeable in character, nature and construction. But there is a coming one whose coming is according to the working of Satan to detour those who reject these truths. The coming one is the becoming one who is not yet but must be. This one must go down on the pit. Why? Because he is the imposter.
The Son’s purpose was to expire the old way of interacting with God called the old covenant. He proved this when he went to the father and said father I have completed the work you have given me to do I have given Those whom you’ve given me out of this world I have given them your word and they have kept it. The scriptures replaced the feasts the ceremonies and buildings of old. The one time sacrifice of the cross expired all others. No other price to be paid. The gift was given. The articulation was complete.
“In Him dwells the fullness of the godhead body” and because we have received his word we have received His fullness. So we too can say I and the father are one. As Paul pleaded, be ye reconciled to the Father”, so we were. The old could not do this.
The “coming one” is a becoming one as though he is not yet but must still be and is there for disqualified as being eternal.
It is as we take all the concepts of God displayed in the law and the prophets and more clearly in the Son and expire them in the heavens being the regions of our mind, through the access to the heart, the very place for God. The gospel message has its fulfilled purpose in us and need not take this any further. As Peter stated “receiving the end of your faith the salvation of your soul”.
The salvation of the soul is to be restored to its proper purpose of full interaction with God. The soul is the only invisible element you have. It is the only Eternal access point you have to the father and without that restoration there is no eternity.
As a seed in the dirt seems insurmountable and unimportant to the plant, for it sees no light and lives in dirt, so too is the man of the Earth. But if it contains the genetics of the Living God showing in our hearts through the gospel being watered by the Holy Spirit, this one becomes enamored with another element. Its sites and focuses are no longer in the shell.
So too with the metamorphosis of a butterfly or a caterpillar. The two are constructs of different elements. One crawls on the dirt the other flies in the air. So too those who have sown the words of God in their heart water it with the Holy Spirit, becomes the thing that is said. The very genetics of God seen in scripture, believed in our heart, in this way we become Godly.
There is no such thing as a hope in an afterlife without this. It is those who in their carnal body being ignorant of the things of God are The Walking Dead. They are dead to the things of God. If this were not so the Son would not of said “let the dead bury their dead”. And John the Apostle would not of said “he who has the Son has life he who has not the Son has not life”. Those who have not the Son have the contrast. And the contrast will be taken out of the way for the Eternal to remain.
And it is also true that “the dust returns to the dust”. Those who do not acquire the spirit acquire nothing. For this reason some who profess Christ are said to be “poor blind and naked”. Not knowing the riches in Christ they are poor not seeing the kingdom of God at hand they are blind because they think the Kingdom will take a physical form on planet earth . Anything made of time and matter will be dissolved with a ferfant heat. ( 2 Peter 3) That’s why those who hold onto a construct and a hope of time and matter, their hopes will be tarnished. Those who put on Christ put on the very words He spoke and become Word like Him. This is our new body like His. Word. We become Word in the Spirit of our mind. 1 John 3 “Beloved now we are the Children of God. When we see Him as He is we become like Him”. And we did
As we said earlier the Son said father I have finished the work that you’ve given me to do I have given them your word and they have kept it. Nothing else needs to be said. The Son was the Fathers final say so.
We who have received the Son in this way as an embodiment of the concepts and attributes of God, are sons of God. It is us who speak the words to confirm who we are by where we’ve been and where we in the very place hidden “in Christ “.
Christ said “No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man[b]who is in heaven.” We too can take these words and expire them fulfilled in ourselves, that “just as He is so are we in the world”. He was not just a man in the world. He was himself being the pre-spoken word, the very exact expression of the father, as we receive His fullness. It has been given for the taking. John 1.16
No one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again and we see and no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born above and so we do. We are a kind of first fruits of his creation being born of word and spirit of his kind non element spirit and Truth.
We testify of what we hear and speak of what we seen because of the place that we have been. That makes us a visitors and pilgrims while we are here in the human body. We who are visitors are called ambassadors. For who can be an ambassador from a country they’ve never had residents in? You could only be an ambassador and a representative of something that you are a part of otherwise you would just be a spokesperson.
This is what happens to those who speak of another coming Kingdom because the kingdom of God being “at hand”. They quite obviously have not been to the place they are trying to represent if they expect it in the future. But The Kingdom of God is at hand.
Like a baby bird in the nest who prefers a soft pre-chewed worm, so to a carnal believer is hooked on old testament culture and parables. This is the same as preferring the old wine for it is better, they reject the new having not the faith, the invisible imbecilic cord.
Those who pay tithes at the temple pay for building projects and give in to sacrifices, these are slow to receive the invisible for the visible things they did are of no Eternal value. For “the earth and all its works shall be burned”. If your works do not serve as a crossover point into the eternal it amounts to nothing. Our Christ has entered into the heavens now, not to a Tabernacle made by hands but a tabernacle made by God. That is the place of our homage, of our sacrifices and our giving. As it says in Isaiah “why do you trample my courts with your feast and your sacrifices? Who has required this of you?” It is to receive God as He is and offered Him the sacrifice of praise. That is acceptable to him.
If you appear at the altar to leave a gift and know not the Gift Giver, the Giver becomes a Taker and you leave empty-handed. To some people he appears as a thief or even what they think they have shall be taken. And those who have an expectation of a future Jesus, do not know the gift that is given. If you knew the Gift Giver and the things He possessed, you would receive immediately the things that you asked for. For this reason the Son said to the disciples “until now you have asked for nothing in my name ask that your joy may be full”. We know the Gift Giver and we know the gift. All the gifts are in Christ Jesus All Things become new in Christ Jesus. You just need to figure out what All Things Are. You may look at some and think they are poor but they possess all things in this way.
For this reason John the Apostle said love not the world nor the things of the world for he who loves the world the love of the father is not in him. But we love God
There are those things that were with God from the beginning. These things are His. This is what He gives to the Elect. Do not let anyone rob you of this. Every else eventually disappears.
If you really knew the Gift Giver in truth you would not have to ask because the things have already been given. “We have been given everything that pertains to life and godliness through the knowledge of him who calls us by glory to virtue”. To share his virtue we are the called. We who know the Gift Giver in this way being the recipients are now ourselves gift-givers. As it is written “he who rejects you rejects Me. He who receives you received Me. We are the conduit. We are the conveyors and the purveyors of the water that doesn’t cost money we are recipients of the Living Water and become Wells of Living Water.
Christ approached the woman in Samaria at the well and asked for water. Had she known the gift-giver she would have asked for the water. She said I know the Christ when he comes he shall tell us all things. In response Jesus said I whom you are seeking, I am. He left no explanation of a 2nd coming. She was filled enough to go tell the whole city. “This is the Christ”. In our age there are many still waiting. God does not repeat Himself. But fortunately we do. We call it the Gospel. To rearticulate the things of God.
In Scripture Our Lord started some Parables with “the Kingdom of Heaven is like…”. He used visual things to explain the invisible. This was the purpose of every Parable “He only spoke to the people in parables and without a parable spake He not to them”.
In the very beginning of creation God made contrasts. In the Book of Genesis it says, “The spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters.” The face of the deep being murky and dark as a contrast to the transparency of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit hovered over the waters to see a reflection, but the deep and the dark portrayed something sinister in a diabolical way.
In our current time the term blasphemy is usually associated with one who uses god to curse. This may show the condition of the heart but there are other, more severe types of blasphemy.
Jesus Christ was accused of blasphemy by the Jews for calling himself the son of God, and making himself equal with God. However if anybody could do this it was him.
Blasphemy simply put is to take the holy, invisible things of God and ascribe to them carnal value, because it is the carnal mind that is enmity against God. God who says, “where is the house that you will build me? For the heavens of Heavens cannot Me.” That “as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts higher than your thoughts, says the Lord”. His things are far different from our things too.
It is the things of creation that were given to us to help explain in part who God is and what God is about, in his assorted elements and aspects. So when we take the things that are meant to explain the things already in existence Eternal in the heavens, being the old and new Covenant descriptives, and then to associate them to be physically actualized for carnalactualised for carnal fascination, this is blasphemy.
It is wrong to associate God with the creation of time and matter. A created thing God is not. Everything created has an eternal corolation we are to awaken to through revelation. The Creator does not become the created or God would become something He wasn’t before. He said “I am the Lord and I change not”. And of the Son scripture says that “Christ is the same yesterday today and forever.” Something creation is not. It wasn’t around yet. He became flesh temporarily for our transfiguration.
We need to understand that when man fell, he fell in the spirit of his mind. And when he fell he took all the concepts of God down with him. Instead of rising to the challenge to become more and more like God. Now fallen man takes the concepts of God, and thinks of God to be experienced on earth, an event to be experienced in time and matter like what is called “a second coming” a phrase that is not found once in scripture. “God is spirit and truth and seeketh such”, a created thing God is not. Those who hold the view that physical things are components of God, if they aren’t new in the faith, they are idolatrous, and commit spiritual adultery. Gods make up is not of these things. He is not of this age or of the world.
You see, God is the reality before He created anything called “Spirit and Truth”. We are in the alternate reality, the place of contrasts. Because when God spoke, He created something other than Himself, a secondary reality for us to choose between contrasts. Our journey is to adopt and become exact copies of His attributes. To put on Christ one revelation at a time to arrive there. To exercise our choosing to be godly, or be the recipients of the contrasts of God. It is the elements associated with time we are suppose to tranfigure from.
Blasphemy is to take the invisible concepts of God and assign to them physical importance. To ground out the heavenly. This becomes the contrast. When it matures it becomes the blasphemy of all blasphemies. Like the “Abomination of desolation”. This was seen with the culmination of the age of the Jews when Christ said of Jerusalem, not one stone shall be left upon another that shall not be cast down.
What the angel told Daniel about the end times was “when you see the power of the Holy people trotted underfoot all these things shall be fulfilled”. That happened. The Jewish culture was destroyed for their continual rejection of things eternal. God sent His Son as His last effort. Stop
It was the culmination of all the Heavenly concepts of God made physically on planet Earth with the expectation of these things being deified that brought their demise. Having a physical Kingdom and the physical King borrowing descriptions from scripture to authenticate itself. It is the grand impersonator, and the ultimate counterfeit, and another Christ called the anti-christ. The antithesis. The Creator is seeing as being a created. This was the mindset of the scribes in Pharisees who asked Christ when his kingdom would come, but he answered them my kingdom come not with observation. That happened at the end of the days of the Jews, And will happen in a similar way again at the end of the Gentiles. Both Abominations are equally guilty because even as Christ said to that group, you are not entering the kingdom of God nor are you allowing those who are trying to do so. Showing that his kingdom is of a Bic ubiquitous spiritual nature.
Christ said “when you see the abomination of desolation spoken by Daniel the Prophet let him who read understand”. We hope you are following us. And Paul talks about this person”The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, why? Because they are the replicants, the imposter and the counterfeits. 2 Thes 2.10 with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved”.
They refused the Heavenly calling. You see Satan assembles a carnal Kingdom for those who reject the kingdom of the Holy Spirit, the kingdom of God at hand, and he uses the old implements of faith. “With all lying signs, if possible to deceive the elect”. Such are we who know “those who say they are Jews and are not, but from the synagogue of Satan”, of those who reinvent that which is fulfilled in Christ.
What makes the abomination of desolation is a collection of heavenly counterfeits presented on earth to those who rejected the invisible counterpart, for them to be damned. Especially the re-presentation of the old Jewish kingdom. When it is completed, there will be one there claiming to be the Christ. This will be the mark of the final wrath of God.
They collect all the things of God in a typical fashion that the Jews of old had done and recieve the same reward. They were given to the Jews for transformation purposes only and they rejected that. According to Paul, it was “the resurrected life they strove night and day hoping to attain” while they were in a physical body. In other words they were to learn with physical Earthly things, the Heavenly reality. But this did not work, for even the scripture says of the old way “there is none righteous, no not one”, and so the old covenant was fulfilled by Christ yhen expired as fruitless.
Christ having expired all the law and the prophets, to come along again today and try to re-establish the old covenant concepts on earth, is an abomination. And because God sent his son as the sacrifice to end all sacrifices, the feast to end all feast, then to have these people regather and re-collect to rebuild those things and restart the sacrifices and feasts, spits in the face of the New Covenant sacrifice of our High Priest who has entered into the temple not built by man, eternal in the heavens, having aquired for us eternal redemption to establish the New Covenant now in effect, is a huge spiritual blunder.
The old has expired and a third one is not in the making. God is done with this. Take the New Way or leave it. The old wine is not better. All there is left for these is a feaful expectation of judgment for those who don’t get this.
To hold on to the old is the greatest blasphemy of all. With all lying signs and wonders. So the final element of the things of the kingdom of God is the king himself. Which is the man of sin who proclaims this thing is the poor fellow that has an x mark on his back that says hit hardest here. “Let them who read, understand, for them there will be great judgment such has never been seen”. The days of grace for salvation will be over.
Repent and believe the gospel. The Kingdom of God is at hand still even now. But then the door will be closed.
The news today commonly talks about catastrophes hurricanes earthquakes Wars and such. But we are called to preach the gospel. The good news. This is God’s answer and solution for mankind.Continue reading Fear, and “end times” Part 1→
Part 1 The Parakleet. Christ’s comforter/ helper, mother of His children.
We know them who said “let Us make man in our image and likeness”. Then they, the plurality of God, proceeded to make them male and female. They wanted us to know Them that way, male and female.
When we get to Christ’s discourse about the heavenly family in John 14-16 we draw upon this truth from the creation account. “Male and female made He them in His image”. God has all the male and female attributes in Himself, and creation reflects this in a man in women who are wed saying “for this reason a man shall leave home and cleave to His Bride. As we will demonstrate, Christ is this.
Here are some words you need to understand from the Greek to understand the Bride of Christ.
In the book of John, Christ said that He would not leave us orphans, that He would send “another comforter and helper”. Someone like Him but not Him. She is in all respects complimentary to Him. Unless you think there are 3 men ruling from Heaven. Then God would only be male.
This other helper like Adam had Eve. Not Himself but one like Him, meaning bone of His bone and Flesh of His flesh, in composition and design similar to Him of non-matter before creation spirit and truth. That He would send this “comforter”, whom the “world can neither see or know, but you will know Her for she will be with you and in you”. Some of us call Her “The Unction of God”. 1 John 2.20
Here we have the hierarchy of the family of God and the parents of those who are “in Christ” and born of them. If we look at them in the Greek it takes on a fuller meaning. The English translators committed a huge blunder.
This is the first part in a series that deal with these obscurities in the English translations from the Greek and Hebrew scriptures. Here is the Bride of Christ, Heavenly Jerusalem, our Mother. Galatians 4.26
Para-klete means comforter. Para means “over arching” like a parachute. Klete comes from klesia which is plural. Klete is singular over klesia.
Klesia means the called. Ek means out. Ek-klesia means “the called out”. This is what the translators call “church”. Forget this word for now. The Holy Spirit in the other parent, Mother and comforter called the Para-klete over Her brood the Elect, those who are “the called”.
This comforter/helper comes from the Greek word “parakleetos” which is from the word “parakleesis” meaning comfort, consolation and exhortation. The “parakleetos’ is the one that brings comfort, consolation, and exhortation. It is actions of the parakleetos that brings comfort to the “ekleesia”. We have the giver, the gift and the receiver of the gift. We have the Motherer of the Eklesia/church.
We know even in English that “para” means over. Like parachute, paratroop, and so on. So also with the Greek. But who is the “parakleetos” over? The Kleesia. And who are they? Well “kleesia” means the called, the invited, the saints, and is where the word “Ekkleesia” comes from. This is the word translated into “church”. So the “para” is over the church, meaning not the building or earthly hierarchy but the heavenly called ones. Those who hear the voice from heaven. Where 2 or more are gathered in His name, underneath Her.
Like the old testament picture when the Tabernacle of meeting with the Holy of Holies, all the priests with all the articles assembled on the feast day
the cloud over shadowed them, as described in Exodus 40. 34 Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 36 And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys: 37 but if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up. 38 For the cloud of the Lordwas upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys. This is a picture of the work and function of God’s Holy Spirit.
It is here that you have to remember that what God taught them in picture form, He teaches us through words called scripture
and the city in the old testament, for His name is on Her, He has Her covered, they are wed, they are one. The para is over those gathered to the eternal truths found “in Christ” for the “called out” are the called “in Christ” Like one of the plural in the man Jesus said,”Oh how I would’ve gathered you as a hen gathers Her chicks, but you were not willing. So also today.
Â She is in Him as are we and we are under Her care, comfort and tutelage. She is the other comforter/helper/help mate, wife and bride. When the body of Christ comes together in the physical, the prophets apostles evangelists and teachers, meaning the ekklisia, or church as we say in English, this is when we practice these truths collectively. Just as earthly Jerusalem was a tutor by mirroring the eternal, to bring us to Christ so also is the earthly Church. It too is temporary having the same purpose as Jerusalem did, to bring all into the full stature of the son of God, but when what is mature has come that which is in part will be done away with. When faith has come. When the eternal is obtained by faith.
Here is the break down from Strong’s Greek concordance for your verification
#3874+ Â parakleesis, meaning helper and comforter,the other parent.
#3870= para, over
#2821= kleesis, and means an invitation, and the invited are the called, from 2564
#2564= kaleo, meaning to call
#1577 ekklesia , are the called, from #2564
In English the helper/comforter/other parent like Christ but not Christ, is over the church. Christ is over Her. She is hidden
in Christ as are we. The church is not the bride of Christ, the Holy Spirit is. There is nothing on earth or time and matter that is of the right design and composition to qualify being the bride but Her. It is not 3 men in heaven ruling mankind.
So we have the caller calling an invitation,calling to a people to be gathered to the place of the calling under the Holy Spirit, the Parakleet. This is the family structure of the spirit. This is partially spelled out in 1 Corinthians in the topic of “coverings”. Â We will discuss this topic more later. And as all born from the flesh from Adam and Eve die. The replacement for Adam and Eve are Christ and His comforter, helper, Holy Spirit, the parents of the new creation. And we are this kind if indeed His spirit dwells in us. As Paul also said in Galatians 4.26 “the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all” And She is the city/bride/wife of Christ/comforter/another helper/Holy Spirit the two come together under the New Covenant to be one for the propagation of the species for the procreation of the new creation of those born of Word/ Jesus and Spirit/ helper.
John 3.29 He who has the bride (the helper, another comforter, parent so we are not orphans) is the bridegroom”. (past tense) If they were not united, or wed, there would be no offspring and we would still be dead in our sins, but now they are and so are we. If you are this kind. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. As many as are not led by Her are not born of Her and Him. They are not His. For the world cannot know Her or see Her. And thie birth too is not a time dimensional truth started with Pentecost, For even Isaac was born of the Spirit. way before the time of Jesus. (Gal 4.29). Pentecost just showed in the physical the eternal realities like the man Jesus did.
The Bridegroom Has the Bride, The King is in the City on the throne even now! Like He was before He came in the flesh to show us the way. Hebrews 13.8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and forever. He never was not King. He was born in the man Jesus the ever lasting Father and king of Kings but not of “earthly Jerusalem for His kingdom is not of this world”and the City is as
eternal as Her King, the kingdom “finished from the foundations of the world”. He always has been as with Her also.
This is the Kingdom of God which is always at Hand!
We know Them who said “let Us make man in Our image and Our likeness”. Then They, the plurality of God, proceeded to make man, and split him in half, male and female. They wanted us to know Them that way, male and female. So They created Adam and Eve.
It wasn’t so much that they were split, but they were turned inside out for our understanding. This is why it was said they were naked. They were exposed. They were splayed open for us to see. Because of this we can know some things about the Godhead, in the images of male and female, because Adam and Eve portray some things that are otherwise hidden from us. Even as Adam did not know Eve when she was inside of him. So God revealed her to him through the sleep. So too the Bride of Christ is hidden from carnal perceptions.
To us who understand? We are now awakened to these Eternal realities. We have put the two halves back together to experience the greater realities of God kept secret from the foundations of the world. This is “that which is from the beginning”. We call The the Bride and The Bridegroom from scripture. This is the wedding invitation of the Lamb and his bride.
Now let’s look at Her as the Mother.
In the book of John, Christ said that He would not leave us orphans, meaning parent-less. That He would send “another helper”. Like Adam had a helper, Christ has a helper. His counterpart and other parent is female. She is “bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh, in composition and design. Similar to Christ of pre-matter existence, of the before creation elements of spirit and truth as being “the same yesterday, today and forever”. They share each others attributes. They are the original male and female that Adam and Eve dimly depicted when they were turned inside out. But She will not be exposed in the same way as Eve. Because Her composition predates creation, and she cannot be carnally known with the physical senses, She can only be made known by revelation.
The original pieces of God were seen working together for creation as described in these scriptures. “In the beginning was the word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” “and “Then God said, let there be light. And the spirit of God brooded over the face of the deep.” She now broods over the face of the deep and darkened soul awaiting their arrival to these eternal, unchangeable realities. This truth precede and supersedes all of the creation that is common to the senses of carnal man. And because God is not carnal, Eve had to be extracted from Adam for him to “know her” and for us to be known too. Scripture says “Adam knew Eve and bore a son”. We similarly are born again by knowing.
When God spoke, the pre-spoken Word came forth from the proverbial mouth of God, coupled along with His breath called the Holy Spirit. This was the first split Adam and Eve portrayed. Like when we speak word and breath comes out also. These are the male and female components of God.
We are like God in this way. Which is why we “shall be judged by every word we utter”. Our words are more of who we are than the clothes we put on and our titles we work for. Our words reflect something of our invisible part we call the heart. God’s Son was birthed from the beginning in this way. This is why “He is the Firstborn over all creation”.
The Greek word for spirit and breath is “pneuma”. It is the same word. This is what qualifies the masculine of God called Word, to be wed with the feminen of God called the Holy Spirit. And because God was male and female before creation, Christ must contain the female as well to be the fullness of the Godhead body. For this same reason any true born again, begotten of the Father must have both parents as well for the scripture to be true in us to affirm that “We are complete in Him” and “of His fullness we have received” equal parts of Spirit and Word. In this way we partake of the thoughts of God, and the things that are His from before creation of things “from the beginning”.
For Christ to be called “the only begotten of the Father” and be the correct image of the Father, He had to contain male and female in order to be able to reproduce. Because man alone without his insides re-attached serves only half the image of God. This is why we are invited to “The Wedding Feast”of Gods Son saying “The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son. Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways”. What about you? Are you ready? Then read on.
In the beginning God split His image called Adam in two by removing a rib called eve. For This reason the two shall become one to mend that tear. Adam was half the man of Christ. Christ was the one to mend that tear by combining the halves of male and female to qualify as the full, mended image of God.
That is why He is the only begotten and true representation of God. In Christ both halves are restored to each other to remain forever. John 1.33
The Spirit and the Word are the only ones that came from God, being made up of His invisible elements of spirit and truth. They being joined together equally are God. They are the ones that said “let us make man in our image, male and female. They together are both co-creators that pre-exist all created things being products of the mind of the Father.
It was not so much the adom was split or the man Adam that was split to implement creation, but the word and spirit. Word defines the solids, the spirit fills expanses. And it is as they are married, and united together in us, that starts our new association, being born again of this the New creation. Which is not really new in the sense of having never been before. But new, in that it never gets old. It remains in its newness of eternal gloryThis too is a contrast for our learning, like light and dark.
It is the created things that present the contrasts that started with the distinction of light and dark that were given to sharpen our understanding. But “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all”. And “we walk in the light as He is in the light” and we see Them as They are. This is how we become like them now and not at some mysterious 2nd coming. (1 John 3) You transfigure and transform by staring at This. 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transfigured into the self same image from the glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” in the here and now.
It is those of us being born by the Word and by the Spirit of God that are “a kind of first-fruits of his creation” now, being born of Them by “the incorruptible word of God that goes on forever”. The Word carries with it Gods genetic, predisposition that we put on and become.
Are we not taught to “put on Christ”? Because “in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body (Which includes Her), and you are complete in Him” if you have received Them, male and female, in their natural pre-carnate reality.
If you have not received God in his likeness male and female. Then you have not received His fullness, but only half. There are still some things you don’t understand. Do not despair though. She is still brooding.
We then are his children and the elect of God being remade in His image by adopting His Word and His Spirit. We are perfected and completed in this way “We are a new creation in Christ”. (2nd Corinthians 5:17)
Christ said “He who keeps My word and My words abide in you, then Me and the Father will come to you and make our home in you” and so They do.
We then are the Elect having both halves reunited in ourselves, having received His word and His Spirit. Both parents are with us.
This is how we participated in the Marriage Feast of the Lamb and His Bride. We receive both halves and are born. Our parents are in us, male and female, Word and Spirit. that is why scripture says, that which is Ennis is greater than that which is in thethat i in the world, and so they are. Christ said he would not leave us orphans?That he would leave us another comforter and his helper And he didn’t, so we have both parents.
We believe the witness of the last prophet, John the Baptist, and agree that “the Holy Spirit descended like a dove from Heaven”, to unite with Christ and to abide with Him forever. Only forever beings can do this. This union is the wedding of Christ and His Bride. Thus is to happen in each one of us. We receive them as They are and become like them. In this way “we are complete in Him who is the head of all powers and principalities”. Yes that “of His fullness we have received”.
We share John’s testimony that said “29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. 30 they (male and female) who come from above are above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all. 32 And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; and no (carnal) one receives His testimony. (Because it is Heavenly and not carnal) 33 He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true.” (John 3.29+) Note here. They were not described as pre-married fiancé. This is the wedding feast we are called to participate in. The wedding ks a foregone conclusion.
So let us continue to adopt the truth about our Parents. Even as Paul said that “Heavenly Jerusalem is the Mother of us all”. We are “the all”. Heavenly Jerusalem is not a future reality but a concurring, meaning continually occurring and ubiquitous reality in spirit and truth. John 4. 21-24
If you are waiting for a new Jerusalem to appear on planet earth, you are missing out on this spectacular event. You are not born from above. You are in limbo.
It is us that adopt the Holy Word and the Holy Spirit that are now called saints. A word that means “holy ones” and invisible ones. Even as the Lord commanded “be ye holy as I am holy”. There is no other way than to adopt Them, so They adopt us into the family of God. That is why we can say like Paul “now we are citezines, members and saints of the household of God.” The wait is over. It is not a carnal event to witness on planet earth. Sven as tge spirit descended from Heaven onto christ, Heavenly Jerusalem descends on us the same way. (Revelation 21.10)
It is as we adopt them that we are bone of their bone and flesh of their flesh, in composition and design similar to them being spirit and truth of sound doctrine and perfect understanding.
The Kingdom of God is at hand in this way. The Bride has made Herself ready as the Bride come down from God. The King is male, the Kingdom is female. Christ’s Kingdom is not of this age. She is from before time whose home and our calling is in God.
This is “Heavenly Jerusalem our Mother” (Galatians 4.26. This is how “The Kingdom of God is at hand”.
Christ said in the Book of John that he would send His comforter and helper, the other parent so that you are not left an orphan, “whom the world can neither see or know” “but you will know, for She will be in you.
Why does the world not know Her? Because She is not of a construct of things familiar to the carnal senses of sight and sound but is in all ways similar to Christ in spirit and truth
So we must receive Them as not of the world, or They present false concepts of Themselves and become liars. Even as Christ said “I go away to the Father and you see me no more”. Like things of time and matter. This They are not. Christ said His Kingdom is not of this age, so His helper, other parent is not of this age either.
Space is not the final frontier, but the spirit is. And you must be born again of the spirit to explore and retain the things that are here. This is why Christ said of the spirit, that the world cannot know it.
Those of the world can only know things that associate with the carnal senses. They interpretation scripture in a physical way and carnal the spirit is not. They are to be spiritually discerned.
When Christ said “The Kingdom of God is at hand, this is what He was talking about. This is why He could say “I am with you throughout the ages” because He is elementally superior. He is not bound by time and matter. Matter and time is bound by Him. “All things are held together by the power of His word. He is before all things, and by Him all things consist”.
In Him we have the hierarchy of the Godhead and the parents of those who are “in Christ” and born of those Parents. If we look at Them in the Greek text, we have a clearer understanding.
The English translators committed a huge blunder here by interpreting some text about the Godhead as being purely masculine. Like the helper, the comforter and other parent called “the Holy Spirit. The English translators view of the Godhead as strictly masculine is in error for God made man male and female like Himself. Both halves are equally important.
The translaters view is totally in-congruent with the law of “kind begat after their own kind from male and female” defined from the beginning. Even with Noahs ark, only animals male and female were allowed in the ark. All others were marked as an abomination and washed away by the flood. How then can God not also have the female inside Him?
So for the Godhead to produce offspring their must be a male and a female to accomplish this. Unless you believe there are 3 men ruling from Heaven. Then he would have made mankind in His image male and male, or some other abominable thing. But that doesn’t jive with the rest of creation which is manufactured and Governed by the Creator. Creation serves the creator. The only thing satan rules is the rebelious and ignorant thinking. But even this is held in check by God like the seas and the stars. Satan has his dominion in the darkened mind of those who and have abandoned their God given logic and fall head first to the place with no bottom.
So the earth and all its works are held together now by the same word that created them for His glory, which is His work in us as we receive His glory. This is us who reflect His image and proof we are His. We are His offspring. There are no boogie men here in the light. All fear is gone. All enemies are put under foot.
Now back to our topic. The comforter/helper comes from the Greek word “parakletos”. Broken down, “Kletos” is one who calls and summons others to come for consolation. That is what the Holy Spirit does. She provides teaching, exhortation and comfort to those who are called the “ekklisia” which the translators use the misleading word “church” instead. Christ said “the Holy Spirit will come and teach you all things regarding Me. The Holy Spirit will take what is mine and manifest it to you”. She breaks down the things of Christ into sound bites of word for our mental and spiritual consumption. As being the other helper, She supports Her head.
This is why we are instructed to “be renewed in the spirit of our mind”. (Rom 12) And that word “renewed” in the Greek is metamorphisis and where the word “transfiguration” comes from. That’s right! That is where our transfiguration takes place. In the spirit of our minds, in the here and now. This is our Galgatha, our deliberation in the skull.
So the Parakleetos is the Holy Spirit, Teacher and other Parent and Mother so that you are not orphans. In this way we fulfill the verse that says “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror (God’s Holy Writ) the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. This is what She does. She takes God’s Son called Word, and feeds these morsals to our mind for our transfiguration to be Word. The same image as the only begotten.
The Holy Spirit is the Bride of Christ and the Mother, comforter, nuturer and helper who helps raise us into their likeness, by the glory to the glory by Her efforts. 2 Corinthians 3.18
So let’s look at Their offspring.
“Ekklisia” from the Greek to English is translation into the word “church” and conveys false limitations. Correctly rendered to English means “the called out ones”. These are souls filled with Gods spirit, of people assembled for God and not buildings. “Wherever 2 or more are gathered in My name, there am I” says the Lord. This is the correct image of church and not a physical building, because “now we are members of the household of God having been built upon the foundation of the apostles and the prophet Jesus Christ the Chief cornerstone. And we are living stones being built a habitation of God in the spirit. This building has no physical members structures or foundations.
Here is the breakdown of “the called” being the “ekklisia.
“Ek” means “out”, “klesia” means “the called” hence “the called out ones” is the correct translation, not church. It is a people,not a building. It is us who hear this heavenly calling. We are called out of Adam to be “in Christ”. We trade the old for the new. This is “The New Creation” different than the old in both composition and design and humanly incomprehensibly greater.
We no longer need to associate with a sin nature but a righteous one. Which is why John said that those who know Christ? That they “are righteous even as He is righteous” because we are born again that way. Or from Paul. Through one man’s sin, many are sinful. How much more through the one man Christ are many righteous” speaking of our New association and inheritance rendered effective at the cross. We put this on. We clothed in what He wears and in this way “even the angels behold the face of the Heavenly Father in each of these little ones.
“Para” means expanding over. Like in the English word “parachute”. And it is what the “Para-klete” does. Para-klete is the Greek word for comforter. She calls us to Herself and broods over us, the “ek-lesia” and “called out ones”. Her goal is our total saturation of the things of God to be godly. To be a God-like-ness. Not to replace God, or become God, but to participate in the Fullness of God.
It is the attention of the “Parakletos” given to the “eklisia” that forms the family of God. We are found “in Her” as we are found “in Christ” because She is “in Christ”. We who are hidden in Christ see the things that are hidden there, and we see Her. Some are under Her but not accepting Her “in Christ” they miss out on this wedding feast in this way.
So we can understand the Holy Spirit is the “Parakletos” in a picture of a mother hen brooding over her chick. The chicks are “the ekklisia” those who are called . Which is why the Holy Spirit in Christ said “oh Jerusalem, how I would’ve gathered you as a hen gathers her chicks, but you were not willing”. She was “calling” but they were not listening to “the call”. They were not of “the called”. They refused Her voice. Having ears to hear and eyes to see, they heard and saw nothing. For it is with the heart one must see in here to understand the things of God. Can you hear “the call”? Are you “the called” of God? Would you like to join the Wedding Feast? The parable says “Come! All things are now ready” Matthew 22
For we know Them who said, let Us make man in Our image and in our Likeness, male and female made He them. We know Them because They are our Parents. We are in Them and They are in us. We are the elect of God, his offspring.
The King and His Kingdom are at hand. Within our grasp. “And all are pressing in”.
When Christ said “on this rock I will build my church”, this is more appropriately translated “on this rock I will assemble My called out ones”. That is more clearly of what it says in the Greek.
He called us saying “follow Me that where I am you may be also”. So we, the elect follow Him now to where He is now, seated with the Father and watch. There is another group who waits.
This assembling together to Christ is more appropriately described in 1 Peter 2 saying “4 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
We then as “the Called” are assembled to Christ the chief cornerstone because we are living stones and not something of the building blocks of time and matter. Even as Peter says that “your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes” showing a difference between creations. We as living stones are “bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh” being elementally different.
So it is “the called out ones” and “the living stones” and not a building on earth called “the church” that houses God, for even the heavens cannot contain God. But the re-spirited mind of faith can. For “wherever two or more are gathered in My name, there am I in their midst”. In the midst is the object of God and not just to hoover or brood.
We are called out of something to be in something else. Which is? To be called from the fallen understandings of the Adamic nature to put on our new man in the image of Christ. His Image is not long hair robe and sandals . To be “in Christ” the destination of “the called. To put off the wrong thinking of the fallen mind, and put on a renewed mind of the spirit. To put on Christ one attribute at a time to awake to our God given glory and activate the gift given through the working of faith, which is our umbilical cord to the invisible God.
By being in Christ, we do not unbecome ourselves. We do not disappear. We are renovated and newly enhanced. We do not lose our features that makes each one of us distinctively different and unique. We then are each a unique blend of characteristics of the father based upon what we have each heard and seen of the things that are invisible that we retain as our portion of His gift to us we call our inheritance.
We are those who hear the voice from heaven that says “come up hither”. Where 2 or more are gathered in His name, underneath Her, like the cloud over the tabernacle in the wilderness and of the city in the old testament picture, for “His name is on Her”. She wears His name like a Bride. The two are one.
She is in Him as are we and we are under Her care, comfort and tutelage. She is the other comforter/helper/help mate, wife and bride. When the body of Christ comes together in the physical, the prophets apostles evangelists and teachers, meaning the ekklisia, or church as we say in English, this is when we practice these truths collectively. Just as earthly Jerusalem was a tutor by mirroring the eternal in a physical way to bring us to Christ, so also is the earthly Church (not speaking of buildings). The church like Jerusalem of old is temporary having the same purpose, to bring all into the full stature of the son of God, but “when what is mature has come that which is in part will be done away with”. When faith has come. When the eternal is obtained by faith.
This is why God has given us apostles, prophets and teachers for the edifying of the body of Christ, to “the called out ones” or eklesia. But of all the teacher’s, prophets and such, they are only temporary . For we see in part and know in part. Knowledge will cease, prophecies will fail. When that which is perfect comes , that which is in part is done away with”. Yes all the select offices and ministers of the church are temporary till faith comes. This is the purpose of our interaction with God and others. As Paul put it in Ephesians 4.11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 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;
For some if us that has happened already. The church is like an embryonic sac containing genetic in formation for our transformation but itself is not the mother but a component of mothering. This is why Paul said “When it pleased God to separate me from my mother’s womb to reveal is son in me. He then distances himself from Jerusalem of old and it’s starchy saying, I did not confer with flesh and blood. I did not go to the old ….
So you see both Jerusalem of old and the church are temporary embryonic sacs till we acquire the carnally intangible and physically unattainable because “that which is flesh, that which is spirit, you must be born again”. So we show you how.
This is why Paul said of himself that God chose Him last to be a prototype for all to believe . That we would see his transition and follow his progression into the carnally unknowable realities of the spirit. He transitioned from the embryonic sac then saying of Jerusalem on earth “cut off the bondsman (earthen Jerusalem) and her son” showing that it only had temporal importance . He concludes the book with the correct definition of “the Israel of God” as nothing carnal or physical but those of the new creation.
It was the Bond woman who was Jerusalem of old who is supposed to produce a son. This son being the son of David who was not Solomon. Solomon means peace and Jerusalem is the city of peace they are the old Covenant Concepts to be cut off. Good true son of promise and the true bride that now superseded our Christ and his paraklesis is the New Jerusalem.
Here is the break down of this hyarchy from Strong’s Greek concordance for your verification
#3874+ Â parakleesis, meaning helper and comforter,the other parent.
#3870= para, over
#2821= kleesis, and means an invitation, and the invited are the called, from 2564
#2564= kaleo, meaning to call
#1577 ekklesia , are the called, from #2564
The replacement for Adam and Eve are Christ and His comforter, helper, Holy Spirit, the parents of the new creation. And we are this kind if indeed His spirit dwells in us. As Paul also said in Galatians 4.26 “the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all” And She is the city/bride/wife of Christ/comforter/another helper/Holy Spirit the two come together under the New Covenant to be one for the propagation of the species for the procreation of the new creation of those born of Word/ and Spirit/ helper. Remember “in the beginning was tge Word and tge Word was God”.
John 3.29 He who has the bride (the helper, another comforter, parent so we are not orphans) is the bridegroom”. (past tense) If they were not united, or wed, there would be no offspring and we would still be dead in our sins, but now they are and so are we. If you are this kind. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. As many as are not led by Her are not born of Her and Him. They are not His. For the world cannot know Her or see Her. And this birth too is not a time dimensional concept started with Pentecost, For even Isaac was born of the Spirit. way before the time of Christ. (Gal 4.29). Pentecost just showed in the physical dimension eternal realities in the spirit.
The Bridegroom Has the Bride, The King is in the City on the throne even now! Like He was before He came in the flesh to show us the way. Hebrews 13.8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and forever. He never was not King. He was born in the man Jesus being the ever lasting Father and king of Kings. But He is not of “earthly Jerusalem for His kingdom is not of this world. And the City is as eternal as Her King, being the kingdom “finished from the foundations of the world”. He always has been as with Her also.
This is the Kingdom of God which is always at Hand!
The Book of Revelation of Jesus Christ was written to reveal things about Jesus Christ. The word revelation is an extension of the word reveal. It comes from the Greek word apocalypse. Apocalypse does not mean the complete destruction of the world or cataclysm. It means an unveiling; to uncloak and make visible. This is very similar to, for example, when a civic center has a statue underneath a blanket to be taken off at a certain time to show (reveal to) its’ citizens. There is an unveiling of what’s underneath.
The righteous Act was the right deed done to erase the wrong. What then is wrong deed, and what is the right deed that corrected the wrong? This is righteousness.
Romans 5 put it like this, that through the one man (Adam) sin entered creation and death spread to all of humanity. And that just has through one man’s act of sin, sin spread throughout Humanity. So too through one man’s righteous act life spreads to those who receive it , who recieve Christ. He is the gift of God by being His right deed accredited to us on our behalf to undo the ill effects of the fall.
In this way we share in His life and are now exonerated from the death that was passed on to us by Adams wrongful act. We have a new nature with a new heritage. Our association is no longer in Adam but “in Christ”. This is why “all things are made new in Christ”. We are “a new creation in Christ” in this way.
Christ’s righteous singular act that He did was to undo the Adamic curse and to free would be believers from the death of being dead to the things of God. As God said to Adam “in the day you eat of it you shall die” and he did. So for us in the day we partake of Christ we live. We are “in that day” the Day of our Lord.
All those born according to Adam are born dead to the things of God. They cannot see or hear Him who knocks on the door of their invisible heart. An invisible God requires an invisible response of what we call Faith, which is our invisible imbecilic cord to the living God. These are the things that are intangible to the carnal senses of hearing sight sound and touch, but insurmountably more real to us the elect.
All those who receive Christ in His original construct being “The Word of God” of pre-incarnate spirit and truth, are born of a new creation having eyes to see and ears to hear of a different nature. These are God’s people, the elect and the true Israel of God the one on earth only mimicked, defined in Galatians 6
15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation.16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, upon the Israel of God.” Such are we. We are that New Creation.
It is those who have this new nature that have a different understanding of the Israel of God. A heavenly one.
Christ is able to save to the uttermost those who come to him. And just as Moses instructed the people to look at the snake on the pole to be saved, we look back to the cross to see our sin and our old enemy the devil hanging lifelessly there. The cross is the one single saving Act of God. Christ did this to produce true righteousness that is able to save equally those who look forward to the cross and us to look back to that saving savior. It was “God who made him who knew no sin, to become sin, for us to be the righteousness of God in Him”. And so He did. “Therefore be ye reconciled to the father!” And so we are.
There is not going to be another saving act or another savior to supersede or add on to this rightly done deed finished at the Cross. Christ’s completed and fulfilled act.
Even as 2nd Peter says that all the Earth and all its Works shall be burned with fire so that true righteousness remains. True righteousness is now, but then it will be without competition.
You see the curse is not something imposed by God on mankind, but the result of mankind operating contrary to their god-given nature of “having dominion over all the earth in cohesion with the living God”. It is that Creation responds negatively to fallen thinking. This is the curse. They have backwards, upside down thoughts. This is why the carnal mind is enmity against God and not subject to the invisible laws of God.
The things mankind was given power over then saying “go forth and have dominion”, now has power over them saying “by your sweat you shall work the Earth with a curse . They were created to live in fellowship and constant non-stop communion with the Creator and His creation, but now they serve creation and remain ignorant of Him who said “lo I am with you through all the ages” and “Goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life”.
The curse is upside-down thinking.
You see God did not curse mankind. They violated the natural laws programmed into the creation by the Creator of “everything being good very good” and walking backwards, much like going the wrong way down a one way street, being oppositional they experience the curse. This is what it means when the disciples were inquiring about the Tower of Siloam that fell on many people. He said “unless you repent (to turn and change your polarity from cursing to blessing) this will likewise happened to you, Showing the need for a polarity change from cursing to blessing to escape this pending self inflicted doom caused by a man and not God. And since it was caused by a man, only a man could undo the curse of pending doom called death.
This is why the pre-existant Son of God “became flesh and dwelled among us”. To jump start a new humanity of those “in Christ”. To supercede fallen humanity with those of the resurrection. For this reason we are offspring of the resurrection of spirit and truth, buried in baptism and raised in newness of life now. We are the elect.
The work of Christ performed the polarity shift, the blessing for cursing as signified by the crown of thorns, a dirrect reference to working the earth and yeilding thorns and thistles from the fall. Hence the need to repent. Turn the other way with right thinking. To return to God in this way. That is what repent means.
Adam turned away from God. And when he turned, he did not get the next best thing, he got the exact opposite, and imposed that spiritual posture on humanity. To all those born of his kind having only carnal perceptions saying “seeing with their eyes they see not, and hearing with their ears they hear not. But the elect of God have both sets of perceptions. We have a God consciousness.
We are not God, but having every thing that God has by being joint heirs of the gift of God in Christ now even in this age.
It was Adam who turned from a God consciousness to a self consciousness. He became afraid and detached from God in his thinking. He became empty first in his self conscious mind. Then he felt naked and guilty for the first time and wanted to hide the lonliness and emptiness. This is a great void in the mind and heart that many try to fill today with countless pleasures and addictions. These are also classified as idolatrous and adulterous toward God because that expanse was intended for His Holy Spirit but now filled with vain repetitions.
Those of us who hear the heavenly voice repent and turn the other way, to Faith in the Living God in the spirit of the Mind which is the place of mankind’s departure and the place of our return and resurrection.
The curse is gone, condemnation is gone, the devil is de-fanged. We accept God in the spirit of the mind and are made whole.
The law culture that was given was to amplify mankinds nakedness and sin. It is this nakedness and sin that was nailed to the cross. We apply this with our thinking and behavior through the working of faith. In Colossians it says “in whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12 buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 blotting out all the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took them all out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15 having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”
The laws we thought to bring righteousness showed us to be wrong and brought us to our reality of who we are without God, crippled and spiritually bereft. As Paul said”Oh wretched man that I am. Who shall deliver me from the law of sin and death? Who shall over ride my self infliction? He then answered himself on our behalf saying ” there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ who walk by the prompting of the spirit and not the flesh.
Through the gift of righteousness of the one man who was the Word of God first, who became flesh, a man to undo the upside down thinking of those departing from God.
Christ secured our safe return by giving us the gospel of which you are now hearing. Sin no longer has dominion, or power over us. It cannot control us. It has no ill effects to us and creation for us is restored to that from the beginning which is “good, very good” if we can receive it by faith. Why? Because all the ill effects of mankinds stupid thinking is grounded out at the cross. “On him was laid the iniquity of us all”.
This is why we see The lamb of God in heaven is The center piece of the Throne room, not Budah, Muhammad or a second coming Jesus. There belongs glory to none other. Revelation 5.1-10
The lighting strike that was looking for us, landed on Him. And Christ did this willingly for you when you were enemies, to have life and life more abundantly. To share in His victory and the pleasures He enjoys today is our bounty and our abundance now. Life more abundantly.
“God sent His Son into the world not to condemn it, but to save it. But He did not come to change the earth but our thinking because it was our thinking that fell. His act at the cross provided all the saving for all time for anyone willing to receive the free gift. He delt with satan, sin and death to longer associate with that. He is now seated waiting for us to join Him. And He has given us that victory through the conduit called the gospel. We learned to appropriate it by faith for our own victory so that we don’t have to fight with Satan, sin and death anymore.
It is the gospel that is the power of God into salvation and not a 2nd coming. (Romans 1.16)
The one saving act of the cross has no encore performance. No need to repeat or ensue anymore battles, but is secure for us in complete victory “waiting for His enemies to be defeated not by another work on His part, but by yours by adopting him and putting on his attributes as defined through the gospel and in this way we put on Christ the son of God the word of God. This is our responsibility and sum duty for our sojourners here.
This is true righteousness gifted to us who believe and the only true righteousness. As 1st John says “little children, we are righteous even as He is righteous” because He is the source of righteousness. His one saving act of the cross. The lamb of God who takes away the sin of humanity to all who accept His righteousness. His righteousness is now our righteousness.
Whenever lightning is aimed our way, we point to Him. He righted all the wrongs. Righteousness prevails.
