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. So when we get to Christ’s discourse about the heavenly family in John 14-16 we draw upon this truth. Male and female made He them in His, or their image. (there are other articles explaining this in depth if you are new to the plurality of God, male and female. Please read earlier post’s)

 

In the book of John, Christ said that He would not leave us orphans, that He would send “another helper” a different parent, 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 “the comforter”, whom the “world can neither see or know”.  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 here.

 

This is the first part in a series that deal with these obscurities in the English translations from the Greek and Hebrew scriptures.

 

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 parakleesis to the “kleesia”. We have the giver, the gift and the receiver of the gift.

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 cloud over the tabernacle 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.
 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+  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”.  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!

TODAY, THE LORDS SABBATH REST

Download PDF

In the Melchizedek post we talked about the King from the before time. The priest who is King or more importantly this King that is also priest. Without father or mother meaning no beginning  or end of days who lives continually. Of whom it is witness that He lives. Who? The eternal before time one.

Let us go on about this eternal topic, the before time, that which is now and is after time. To that day which is not measured by days months seasons and years. To the day that was before anything was made. This place that has no need for the sun because the lamb is it’s light. This place Peter refers to “till the day (of this age) dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts”. This day is not a physical one related to the sun and solar system as we know it. The morning star for us is an awakening. That sun shines eternally. “Jesus Christ is that light that shines in the  heart of every man”. He is that true light. He is the light of the new day. The day that already was. Like the King and priest who lives continually in a day that is like them. That has  no beginning and no night. For God is light and in Him is no darkness.
The writer of Hebrews expounds on this day as the day of rest. The Sabbath that is not on a Saturday or a Sunday remains a day continually saying “There remains a rest for the people of God”. There is a promise to enter in to this day, to this place. “Let us fear lest any of you fall short of entering in, for the gospel was preached to us as well as them but it did not profit them not being mixed with faith”. This is the gospel finished from the foundation of the world.
You see when God rested from His works, He rested from His creation from what He spoke into existence. He did not rest in what He created, and He says “it is in this place they shall not enter”. So did God rest in the heavens like Orion’s belt or some distant galaxy? No. Those were made on the 2nd day of creation. Well maybe He rested where the angels are. No. For He has not put the age to come of which we speak in subjection to angels. (Heb 2.5). For He made all things visible and invisible by the things that He said and He rested in this place before a word was spoken in what is called the beginning. That place before time and the creation of matter and lower level spirits. The place of His rest is before all things. A place where  a created thing cannot go but to Us the invitation is extended, to this place is Gods rest, from His creation.
 
It is generally thought that the Sabbath is just not doing our works. That we rest from our labor. But He says “in this place they shall not enter“. This place before time and matter. This place remains the King and a Kingdom continually, eternal, timeless, the be fore time place.For he who entered his rest has ceased from his works as God did from His.
Let’s look at it this way. There is this creation that we experience with our physicality, and there is a spiritual before time reality. Both of these realms have specific design being distinguishably different from each other. The creation we experience physically has characteristics of getting old. From the day it was made  there was erosion, corrosion, decay, corruption, wrinkling and fading. The apostle differentiates  the two this way “for our outward man perishes but our inward man is renewed daily”.
More appropriately our inward man is brand new always. It is not being made or it is not eternal, It is forever new.It is our inheritance ”reserved for us in the heavens that does not fade”.
 
So there is a getting old creation and the new. But the new creation is not getting new or being made as we think of a new born baby or a new house or car. You see these things are created. They have a beginning. The new in an eternal sense is just not getting old. It is eternally new in it’s perfect unchangeable state at it’s peak point in glory. This is how we know Christ as the Bridegroom and father of the new. The new Adam, the replacement the new creation. 
The first man Adam is a human being, the last Adam, Christ  is a life giving spirit.. As Adam was born of the dust so are all of humanity and as Christ  was heavenly so too are we, if we are born of the Spirit. The last Adam Christ is a quickened spirit. (1 Corinthians 15.45-49. And are we not quickened if we have this spirit? 
 
Think about in the physical world all the efforts that are made to create and make new things and to refurbish and to restore. Almost everything man does is related to this. Our jobs and duties as parents and teachers and nurses and politicians are all spent doing this. The health and fitness industries do this. They try to optimize us and make us as perfect as possible. To be glorious. 
 
A  preacher friend of mine always said “no matter how much make-up and lip stick you put on a pig, it is still a pig. And it is our old Adamic nature that we wash up and make sure there is not a hair out of place to be as perfect as humanly possible and doing the best we can and we offer that to God. God is not pleased with that. Like the Israelite’s in the desert with the sacrifices “drag that old carcass outside of the camp”. It is what  is inside that counts.  Rom 12.1 Offer up the living sacrifice. The for ever new. 
 
The new testament teaching of “putting on the new man” is just this. By faith we learn to put on, not the pig and the best we can do but Christ in His perfection that has been gifted to us in it’s complete form.  And when we put Him on, the new man, “in the image of Him who made us” this grants us access to Gods eternal, invisible, before time, always brand new, glorious, non-created, realm scripturally called “the new creation”.
This is what Paul means in the book of Galatians 6.15 when he says that “nothing avails anything but the new creation”. Meaning we are granted access to Gods rest in the before time when we put on the new, in Christ. This is what grants us access.  This is what it means to be “in Christ”.
Feet can’t get you there. Not a car an airplane or a flying saucer but faith. Being re-newed by the washing and the regeneration of the spirit. This is the porthole into that kingdom. Faith in Christ. This is you new in the eternal . The new creation is you. (2 Corinthians 5.17)
 
Of Adam he was told “in that day you eat of the tree of knowledge you shall die” And mankind with all this creation has been dieing, fading, and falling apart every day since then. But there is another day. It is called in scripture “that day”, the “Sabbath day” the day of rest from this creation to be where God is.
As in Adam all die. In Christ all live. All who are quickened enter by faith. And they rest where? In that place, that day finished from the foundations of the world before time and matter. That place from before God ever spoke a word.
 
There are many who think that the visible creation must be gone, that time must culminate before we see the new. That the new is somehow after this, but if you can truly understand, what they are looking forward to has already been since the foundations of the world. It pre-existed not being subject to time and matter in it’s eternally new glorious state of existence. The things that are in “that day”  are God, it is all God, it is complete, a complete kingdom “and you are complete in Him who is the head of all power and principality. And to be in that day is to be in Christ. The things that are there is the King in all rule and power in the Kingdom.
When Christ said the Kingdom is at hand, this is what He meant. All the components of the Kingdom which are equally God. They exist before a word was ever spoke. If they are not eternal it is because they were spoken into existence. But the King and the Kingdom are equally eternal and before time.
So they are only new, meaning having not been, only in our understanding. But they, meaning the persons of the Godhead, are always. To be in the forever Kingdom is to be in the forever day. This is being “in Christ” if you can receive it. If your ability to recon is working.
 
As John the baptist spoke “He who has the Bride is the Bridegroom. And yes this is the Bride of Revelation 21- “Therefore this joy of mine is full”. And his understanding is complete. This is the eternal gospel to be preached till we all come to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man  to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ”. To no longer be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine by the trickery, cunning and craftiness of men who lie in wait to deceive. They formulate theories that keep you out of this Kingdom. They direct your attention to another day,  to another work of God.
 
The kingdom to come in which we speak is “TODAY” If you will hear His voice harden not your hearts as they did in the wilderness. TODAY is the day of salvation. Today is that day of rest.
 
The Kingdom of God is still at hand.

EKEINOS # 1 MEANS THEY AND THEM NOT HE AND HIM

Download PDF

In the notes at the bottom of the page in chapter 2 of the book of John, in my Greek interlinear it states of the translaters, “John repeatedly uses the demonstrative adjective ekeinos in the sense of “he” referring to Christ”.
This is uncommon. Ekeinos is translated “them , they and that” in all the new testament with the exception of the book of John and 1st John. In other words John was referring to Christ as a plurality by using “ekeinos” and better translated “they” or “them” in those passages.
The reason John did this I believe is that John was revealing the nature of the God head.  As I wrote in “The Bridegroom has the Bride” Christ and the Holy Spirit are two portions of the Godhead and are correctly interpreted as “they” and “them”
In the Strongs #1565 ekeinos means they, them ,those, meaning a plurality.
Here are some verses I am referring to.
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 He must increase, but I must decrease. 31 He who comes from above is 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 one receives His testimony. 33 He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true. 34 For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure. 35 The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand.
So John the baptist’s ministry as “the friend”, witnessed the union through baptism, “On whom you see the spirit descending and remaining upon”. So then in clarifying 3.31 the one from above is above all, uniting and becoming one with Christ. This is like Adam and Eve, the two become one, reuniting the true split and through that union are those born from above. The spirit from above in union with the Son for the new creation. II Cor 5.17
I believe that John was pointing to this union by using the word ekienos for Christ so that the reader would know the plurality of Christ. The translators muted that plural word. In fact throughout the book of John the translators took every liberty and opportunity they could to turn all adjectives pertaining to Christ and the Holy Spirit to “HE”. Not only did they interpret “they” and “them” as “He”, but they also capitalized “He” and “Him” This was all done to elevate their distorted view of the Godhead, of which God said He made it for us male and female. Gen 1.27.
He /They who also said “let US make man in our image, in OUR likeness.
This same distortion is evident in John writing about the “helper” the “comforter” the other parent so they are not “orphans”. Unless it is Adam and Steve that reflect the Godhead being only male. I have a problem with that.
Anyway I don’t know the Greek well enough to understand why they did this, but I know man.
I can rest just fine in this but it is those who are erroneously waiting to become The Bride when you can no more become The Bride then you can become The Son. We can only take on characteristics of our parents.
Paul says in Galatians 4.26 The Jerusalem above is free, which is the Mother of us all.
So the union is complete unless we are all born out of wedlock. Heavenly Jerusalem is the final Revelation of Christ in the book “The Revelation of Jesus Christ”.

The High Priest and His Breast Plate

Download PDF

Caiaphas the high priest made the statement that “it is expedient that one man (speaking of Christ) should die for the people, and not only that but that He would gather together in one (in Christ) all the children of God scattered abroad.

This is about His body and a great truth. As He said “where two or more are gathered together in my Name there am I”, gathered “in Christ”. And as we are gathered to these eternal truths that were with the father, we are gathered to something much more than a city  at a specific point in time. To something more solid then a mountain of granite. For the form of this world passes away, so that the eternal remains. And it is not as if the eternal has to be brought down or brought back like at some 2nd coming. No it is much easier than that.
Deu 30.11 Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. 12 It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” 13 Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” 14 No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.
 
What we are gathered to are these transparent stones of truth. It is from this quarry that we are hewn. Like Peter being a living rock, we too are living stones being built, assembled, or gathered up a spiritual habitation for God.
 
 The High Priests ephod with 12 stones
 
The high priest an ephod being a breast plate with 12 stones positioned on the front, over his heart. And it is these 12 stones brought together that he holds very dear. 12 is the number of tribes of Israel and the number of disciples and symbolizes the foundation of the house of God. We are His house. It isn’t until the high priest puts these on that he goes into the Holy of Holies. Without them He does not enter. What he holds dear he takes into the very presense of the Father Himself. Isn’t that what Christ prayed in John 17? Father that they may be one with us? And this prayer was said by the same person who said “let there be light”? And that did not take some 2000 plus years but “it was so”. And isn’t this He who said “take up thy bed and walk”? So too in Gethsemane He spoke and prepared a place for them and us that “where I am they may be also”. This was for them and is operational for us today. This is the message. He became sin for us to become righteous “in Him” so “be ye reconciled”. Be one with. Be gathered to the Father now. For we have such a High Priest eternal in the heavens now appearing to the Father. For this reason we can go boldly to the throne room of grace. This is a current reality of life in the spirit to all who believe. Take caution that no one rob you of this reward of faith.
 
You see this is the age of transformation and transfiguration. For we are being transfigured into the same full image from glory to glory by the spirit.
 
But there are those who believe that they are left in limbo waiting for Christ to come back and do something. That they will not believe to receive. But when Christ does come back, it is not to pick up where He left off to finish a work in you as though He did something half way. For the just shall live by faith, and without faith it is impossible to please Him. For when He comes he would not save for when you see it, it is not of faith, for we are saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope.
 
There is a coming a time when “time is no more” (Rev 10.6). That only the eternal remains (Heb 12.27). That which we have acquired in this age, that which we have received from Him we keep. This is our whole purpose to lay hold of why He laid hold of us. But what about when He comes? 
 
Revelation 22.11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous[e] still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” Again, time is no more.
So if we have the notion that His work will continue later we may be found slothful stewards. For He is close at hand who judges us and His reward is with Him to give as He wills. And He wants to today. It is the Fathers good pleasure to give us the Kingdom but if we are looking for it with our eyes it is passing before us like the wind. For if we do not put on Christ and the invisible truths about Him that are Him, we will be found naked. For we groan within ourselves not to be unclothed but to be further clothed in immortality. This is invisible. This is not an event but a life style. The flesh will return to the dust. The transformation of our heart, mind and soul and putting on the new body is now.

 

The Body of Christ, the called out and the Valley of dry bones.

Christ’s body seen in Israel

In I Corinthians 10 Paul draws upon old testament teachings of Israel saying “they all passed under the cloud, and through the sea That they drank from the rock and that rock was Christ. He drew a parallel between Christ and Israel. Exodus 4.22 says that Israel is Gods first born son but is it really? No it pictured Christ, and as Israel was called out of Egypt so too was Christ. (Mt 2.15  ) That Christ was the fulfillment of that prophesy. But Israel was a visible picture of the body of Christ as being a community being several members edifying, learning and growing in understanding Christ. “They drank from that spiritual rock that followed them, and that rock was Christ”. And verse 11 All these things happened to them for us on whom the end of the ages has come”.

Israel expired in a physical sense be it the law the tabernacle the feasts the sacrifices and so on, but as Peter said after he explained how he saw the Transfiguration of Christ that “you have the prophetic word more sure than what we had when we were with Him on the mount”. Meaning that even if the pictures are no longer visible for the physical eye, the written account is active for those who have eyes to see, in the spirit.
Just as all who were in Israel with Moses were called out of Egypt, Israel being Gods first born son, the people being collectively called out, pictured those who are called out to be “In Christ”. So being “IN Israel” pictured being “IN Christ”. Israel collectively prophesied the body of Christ comprised of many members.
The ekklesia, the called out
Now when Jesus said to Peter “on this rock I will build my church” From the Greek it says “I will build my ekklesia”. Church is the word the translators use for ekklesia but it means “the called out ones”. Those in Christ are the “called out ones”. They are called out of the world to be in. Every where in scripture you see the word church, it means “the called out ones”, and has the same Hebrew meaning as General assembly or festive gathering.
So if we misunderstand these truths we miss out on these parallels and the old testament has less relevance and meaning.  So being in Israel is to be in Christ. Not in a land but a people collected around spiritual truths and practices. Those in Christ are His body as those in Israel pictured His body. All His members.
Other pictures of the Body
The writer of the book of Hebrews 3 uses members of house as an analogy of being in Christ instead of a body. That the house of Moses was expired with the house of Christ ” of whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence of our hope and rejoicing firm to the end”.
Daniel draws from a picture of “a great mountain” instead of a body or a house. Dan 3.45 inasmuch as you saw that stone cut out of a mountain without hands”, being a kingdom that stands forever that will not be destroyed or left to another people. And that prophecy expired when Christ said “on this rock I will build my Church”. Church meaning “called out ones”. That on this rock I will assemble my called out ones.
There are other ways used to define the Lords people like the man whose name is called “the Branch” The “good Shepherd” we being the fold, and many more, but these all expire “IN Christ” The law and the prophets were until Christ. This is what it means in in 2 Corinthians 3 when Paul says of the Jews that “their minds were hardened. For until this day (even our day)  a veil remains unlifted in the reading of the old testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ” . All the pictures are fulfilled in Christ, meaning it is of Him. It is finished.
Valley of Dry Bones
In Ezekiel 37 he uses an analogy of a valley dry bones and the Lord said “Son of man, can these bones live? Then the Lord said of the bones I will cause breath to enter you and you shall live. And that happened. The body that was so dry, dead and lifeless in a spiritual sense so much so that Christ came and condemned it, He put out of business. He took the Kingdom from those stewards and gave it to another and closed the old covenant to establish a new. He took the teachings of the Mosaic and the Davidic and fulfilled, expired and raised them. Christ said “destroy this temple and I will rebuild it in 3 days”  and He did. He took the truths the meanings the structure being the very bones that held the body together and resurrected them into the spirit where they belong. Of the bones, God breathed in new life. Like with the first image of God, Adam who received breath became a living body, so too with the valley of dry bones which just pictured the body of Christ being an assembly of called out ones. At Pentecost they received breath.
The dead rise in Spirit
From Isaiah 26.19 Your dead shall live; together with My dead body they shall arise”
The whole body of Christ is resurrected. When He rose, the Ekklesia rose with Him. “With my dead body they shall arise”. This is being “In Christ” being members of His body, the body the others pictured. All things are fulfilled In Christ. We are reckoned dead and “thus judge that if one died for all then are are dead”. We are alive in view of the Father. As those who crossed the Red Sea did so after the angel of death passed over them. This is the Passover, from death to life, to new life “in Christ” To be called out of Egypt and death, into life of the Spirit “In Christ”. The New creation is the New spirit, this is new life.
This is breath in the old bones and the flesh and sinews is not of a carnal nature for the carnal does not inherit the Kingdom. We having put off Adamic, now put on Christ. He is our new body and as we see Him as He is so we too become, for “as He is so are we in the world” and He is not of the flesh. “we knew Him once in the flesh but now we know Him that way no more”.
Not a bone broken
A prophesy and a promise of Christ on the cross was that “not one of His bones would be broken. That all the insults hurled at Him throughout time, all the stones thrown swords and staves, however disfigured and marred His visage becomes, even from lies of cults and the confusion of the unlearned and even the obscurities of various translations, Not one bone was broken. The truth remains. The very structure endures. Lo I am with you through the ages.
Invisible Pillars and Stones
Of Him it was said “righteousness and truth are the foundations of your throne. That these are invisible pillars. Invisible structures, bones, truths  if you would. We also see more invisible and transparent stones and terrible crystals in the structure of the Heavenly Jerusalem. The twelve gates are named the twelve tribes of Israel and the foundations are named of the twelve disciples. This city where every brick has a name, unhewn and untouched by human hand  mind you, is not made from granite or marble or gold or matter from the earth of this creation, but is the new creation “measured according to the number of a man who that is of an angel”. That is right. A resurrected saint of His kind and likeness is a brick in the Kingdom of God.  Isn’t this what Daniel saw “this great mountain”? And this is the election. Your name was already written on a brick/stone from the beginning.
You are the elect.
The church being the called out ones, called to be saints, to be “in Christ” in the body, being assembled to these eternal truths, a new body from the resurrected dry bones,  being the stone and new life, cut out with out human hands from the book Daniel, is the body of Christ having received the Holy Spirit . Not one bone or truth broken but assembled, come together, resurrected and seated in the heavens . (Eph2.6) We gather not to a physical place on earth for that is not His house, but the truths in Christ. We are gathered and assembled to Him in Spirit and Truth for the Father seeks such to worship Him.
Jerusalem raised incorruptible
So not only was Christ raised incorruptible having been sown a seed, so too the Jerusalem of earthen dirt had been expired in purpose and raised in the spirit of our mind. For that Jerusalem stood in contrast to the heavenly. It was at set times in a set place to a certain people in a prescribed fashion called the law to the Jews in the Hebrew language but now has come to the gentiles. To all nations, tribes and languages. As Pentecost showed not in the Hebrew tongue but all languages and all peoples in every place where two or more are gathered together. For the time now is when you will no longer worship in Jerusalem but in spirit and truth. Mt 24.1 Jesus said of Jerusalem  “not one stone shall stand upon another”. Unlike the earthen Jerusalem with stone upon stone never to be seen again, remains a city eternally in the heavens made of heavenly stones, which is the place of our calling and our inheritance and our citizenship, the Kingdom finished from the foundation of the world where sits our King.
Psalms 48.12 Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.13 Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
If you think the idea of an invisible city is strange, look at this from Revelation 3.12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: (not earthen) and I will write upon him my new name.

13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Blessings

Revelation of the Bride

I don’t understand why the church today thinks that it is the literal bride of Christ. It is no more the bride of Christ than Eve or the tabernacle or the temple. These are all female images displaying eternal things unexposed to the carnal mind, unveiling the intimacies of the living God, His helper, another comforter, the one sent so we would not be orphans. To those who are born of the spirit.

If you have a view from above, a heavenly one, looking down on the tabernacle of meeting with the holies and most holy, or even the temple in Ezekiel, you see it is laid out like a human body taking on human form having the head facing east. The Holy of Holies being the mind and reason.

God called Israel His Son in Exodus 4.22. But Israel was not really Gods son but an image like Adam and Eve. The same with Solomon, meaning peace, (Shalome)and Jerusalem (Yeru-Shalome) meaning city of peace.  These portray the King and His Bride. The male and female working together fully portray God being made “in His image and likeness made He them male and female”. This is what Adam, Israel and Solomon portrayed, but then expired by Jesus Christ who said, “he who has seen Me has seen the Father”.

As with the tabernacle so too with Jerusalem. The twelve tribes are positioned around the tabernacle or the city as if to protect her. To protect her, to cover her. She is hidden in them. Israel is the same picture as the body of Christ, the prophets were the eyes.

We know the prophets cried over the city Jerusalem and called her “mother”, but she was not really their mother any more than Israel was Gods Son. Israel and the kingdom are like Adam and Eve. Unlike with Adam who’s bride was taken out of his side, the city/bride, is hidden inside of Israel, from within ,portraying “In Christ”. And outsiders or foreigners were not to partake in the workings of the temple which are the invisible things of God.

Paul defined himself as a steward of these mysteries of God, to dispense to the elect of God, those in Christ, not Adam. These mysteries are the interpretation of the physical into the eternal spiritual counter part. This is what a prophet does. He is to make simple the eternal realities of God through pictures and patterns and visions. You see the Jewish leaders thought the temporary pictures were the real deal when Jesus said that He would re-build the temple in 3 days, they said that it took Solomon years to build. The Lord was never talking about the physical. The earthen pictures always refer to an eternal counterpart. Jesus was talking about His body, the invisible Kingdom.

Now I hate to break it to the church on earth but what we are is the same as was earthly Jerusalem, a temporary picture of the eternal realities of the Kingdom of God which are at hand, within grasp. If this were not true, why would Paul say of the body of Christ on earth that “prophesies will fail, tongues will cease, knowledge will vanish”, being temporary, but when that which is perfect has come then that which is in part will be done away with. That is right. Tongues and prophecies end with the understanding of what already was.

The church is a means to an end like all the other pictures and patterns given for us to understand God. And what is the purpose then of these things given in part? To hold us over until the illusive second coming? To keep us in a holding pattern til He comes to deliver us? Wake up! He already did that.

These things were given “til we come to a mature understanding, to bring us into the full stature and measure of Christ”. And if that is to happen to each one of us now, what are you standing around for? Know ye not the parable of the talents?

And of Paul again “I press on to lay a hold of why Christ laid hold of me. This is walking with God, to press on toward the upward call in Christ. As many as have this mind are mature.

The church like Israel, is a guardian or a tutor to bring us to faith, but after faith has come, or after you receive the eternal counter part, you are no longer subject to the repetitious cycle of the patterns. It brings you to the eternal invisible, ever ready kingdom of God. You are not at some train station waiting for a man named Jesus to come and save you. He already did that if you have an ounce of faith.

And of those who understand the spiritual counterpart? Galatians 6.16 As many as walk according to this rule, peace (Shalome) and mercy be upon them, (upon us) upon the Israel of God”

We speak what we hear and testify of what we see and man does not receive our testimony. If I tell you earthly things and you don’t understand, how can I tell you heavenly. They were never meant to be earthly, but to teach us eternal.

If we are not talking about the “Kingdom of God at hand” we may be like those who Christ said “you are neither entering the Kingdom nor are you allowing those who are trying to enter to do so. We may be found false stewards if we stop short of this one thing.

Behold I stand at the door and knock!
The Bride is in the Groom.
The Kingdom of God is at Hand!

Gah-den and the Garden of Eden

Download PDF
As I was researching the Garden of Eden in the Strong’s and Englishman’s Hebrew concordances, the name Eden has some interesting things. It is spelled with a letter that carries the same sound as our “G”. It is the 16th letter in the Hebrew alphabet which is called “gah-yin”. And Eden in Hebrew is correctly pronounced “gah-den” not Eden. From Strongs # 5729,  This word “gah-den” sounds like “garden” but here is where it gets cool. “gah-den” broken down into syllables comes from two words. #5704 means, unto, forever, and until. It is used in Genesis 3.19 “UNTIL thou return to the ground”.  #2004 is translated, thee, therein, they, them, and (in them). Gah-den can mean “forever (in them)” or “until in them”. This helps define Edens purpose.
Because of the fall Adam was to eat bread until he return to the ground.He was kicked out of the Garden of Eden. Adam was judged by God. He was kicked out of being (in Them) and was told “cursed is the ground, in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life, in the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the dust for from dust you were taken and to dust you will return. This is the judgment of the man of flesh, which is in contrast to the man of the spirit. Blessing in the  Garden are you or “Gahden” which was “blessed are you, by cultivating in Eden/spirit and joining God in His rest you shall eat the produce of the trees and live forever (in them). And who is (them)? The one who said “let Us make man in our image.
The object of Eden was for man to be forever (in them). God is the (they), or (them) in Eden, in the Gah-den. So then the purpose of Eden? To live forever (in THEM). This is what it means to be (In Christ). Jesus who said “We speak what we hear and testify what we have seen” He is (they) and them being we and “let us make man” (The father the spirit and the Son are them).
 Man was made from the dust of the earth and given the breath of life and became a living soul. He was made of contrasting compositions, earth and spirit. When he transgressed he lost the spirit. The spirit that made him a living being departed and he became dead. Meaning not only that he would die and not live forever but that he was dead in the spirit.  When he left the Gah-den, he left the spirit. His actions of sowing and reaping that before brought life while he was in Eden, now brought forth death. From the sweat of his brow he worked to eat bread till he returned to the dust for from dust he was taken, but we know Him who is the bread of life and we eat of Him, we return not to dust but to the Father. This is Eden, gah-den. This is to be in the spirit, (in Them) in Christ.
This is why man must be born again, or made over. He must be made new like he was in the beginning. To enjoy the “Gah-den” he must be born of spirit, meaning get again what Adam and Eve lost, the breath of life. And having this breath of life not of oxygen but the Holy Spirit, an eternal composition of non composition, we now have a sweet relationship with the invisible God like Adam lost, hence the garden of Eden is restored “in Christ”. This is the redemption. To redeem from the fall to restore to the beginning, to Eden. To him that overcomes.
So fallen man eats produce of the earth to grow up to be a full man of dirt, but we eat of a different produce. Not like the manna in the wilderness though. They all died in unbelief except Joshua and Caleb with the new generation. Josh 5.11+12 “they ate the produce of the land on the day after the passover” (from death to life) “the manna had ceased on the day after they had eaten the produce of the land”. These verses refer to spiritual food. Like Jesus said he only spoke in parables, but to the disciples he said He spoke plainly about the father.
The Lord planted a garden and there He put the man whom He had formed and instructed him not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Scripture says “cursed is the man who hangs from a tree”, and it was Christ who hung on a tree for us, and He is the fruit of that tree and He is life. He is the tree of life. “Lo the volume of the book is written of Me” and Eden too is about God and is God in make up and composition of being invisible to the naked eye and carnal senses as are all aspects of God.
As the name Jesus in the Greek is the same as Joshua in the Hebrew and means savior, for his name is what He came to do. He was His name so too the Garden of Eden (Gah-den) carries with it, it’s purpose. We work it not with the sweat of the brow but being leisurely (in them). This is the rest of God.
We then being redeemed, are redeemed from a curse to be restored to the pre-curse relationship. And we sow in the gah-den to reap in the spirit as it was designed for Adam and Eve.
Since we put off the old Adamic man by the working of faith at baptism, are we then naked? If we are waiting for a visible work of God we are. But if we put on Christ we are clothed, and we do this by sowing and reaping, and God is not mocked for whatever a man soweth so shall he reap and what we reap we don’t reap some 2000 plus years after He said it or that is a mockery. You see Mary sat at the feet of Jesus and He said that “she has chosen the good part, that will not be taken. He did not give her an I.O.U.
Before Adam died he was put into a deep sleep then he was split in two, so are all who are of his image. They are sleeping and cannot discern those who said “Let Us make man in Our image and Our likeness.
We have some understanding of the term “In Christ” but simply put, to be “in Christ and the spirit” is to not be “in Adam of the dust”. Hence the term in scripture “Awake!” This is what we do after we put off the old man symbolized by baptism and receive the life Adam was denied being now quickened, or made alive we then “wake up” and reverse the first condition from Adam.
Jesus went to another garden to complete this task after He had said “I go to prepare a place for you that where I am you may be also. Here is the purpose of this garden called Galgatha, meaning the skull which is a the dead head, and as Adam died and all flesh returns to dust, the place of the work Christ begins is to renew the mind, the spirit of the mind. The skull is the dead to God mind, being the carnal mind that is enmity against God, this is where redemption takes place. “be ye renewed in the spirit of your mind”.
The human mind attached to the eyes ears and lusts of the flesh is totally unable to see Him who is invisible and close at hand. Christ redeemed us from the garden of the dead skull to restore us to another garden, to a new way of thinking. This garden is an eternal place not associated with time and matter, but of the spirit being the composition of non-matter. It is in our renewed mind that we sow the word of God and reap things of the spirit, not of the dust. what grows, or transforms here is the renewed mind. Not of things seen with eyes of flesh because that just inflames the flesh and the carnal mind, but with the eyes of understanding. What we see we put on, we become.
This is the new life. We put on Christ. As Mary had chosen that which was needful, the part that will not be taken, an eternal gift, so too with us we receive several needful things. We sow, we see, we reap, we receive, we keep. And He who has said “I come and my reward is with Me”, He is invisible and leaves invisible deposits with us that grow within us and we become new in His Kingdom. But this is not a new kingdom in terms of existence but only new in understanding for the kingdom was finished from the foundations of the world. This is why Jesus’s message was “the Kingdom of God is at hand”. Learn of it in the gah-den, meaning in the spirit and become what you learn, be ye transformed in the spirit of the mind that you may know what Gods  good acceptable and perfect will is. Which is?  To be forever (in them). 

God as neighbor

God in times past spoke to the fathers by the law and the prophets in fragments through a series of condemnations, judgement, mourning’s, and woes, followed by a promise of renewal. This renewal was never meant to be part of the creation of time and matter but a metamorphosis into something else. It was described in terms mankind would understand as being a kingdom but never meant that the kingdom would be in a physical sense. 

Man thinks of a kingdom in terms of physical components having a capitol city with walls structures and buildings and having a governing body and, from old time terms, a king and a queen with a hierarchy and an army. What about Gods kingdom?
The old testament prophets were taken in visions by seeing “something like” then he would describe this vision in terms the people would understand, like with Ezekiel 40.2 He was taken in visions OF GOD (about God). And he saw, but not with human eyes, “something like the structure of a city” when He saw visions, or likenesses OF GOD. He then explained it in terms the people would understand, words they commonly used like that of a building but not a building but like a building. He distinguished His city as being Holy by saying “This is the place of my throne, where I dwell” and tell them “when they set their threshold by my threshold and their door posts by my door post they defile My Holy Name”,
They profaned God and His kingdom by thinking He was just like them of the earth. They misunderstood Him and thought He was just a guy in the neighborhood a few doors down. This is an abomination to make trite, or common, the things OF GOD. 
The words from the prophet describing eternal realities were interpretated by the people as none other than of earthly composition. The call from eternity was neutralized by the carnal mind. God is not a man, man is made in His image, just a likeness. Man is of earthen dust, the buildings were earthen. This is a far cry from being a Holy God in His Holy city of a heavenly composition. Ezekiel saw a vision OF GOD, of the City from God, not creation being as eternal and pre-existent as God, being components of God Himself.
We need a renewed mind in the things OF GOD (about God). The new testament term is seen in the “transfiguration”. As Jesus was transfigured in view of the disciples so similarly are we transfigured “by His spirit into the same full image from the Glory to the Glory”. And this is an important point. There is no transformation in hoping for an earthly city to be made  for the man Jesus. That is a carnal fascination with zero spiritual value. Redemption is to take us to God, not to bring Him here. He already was and still is just not the way you might understand. We need to “be renewed in the spirit of the mind”, the inner man to the things OF GOD. 
 
What the law and the prophets lacked in presenting Gods Kingdom in things “like” those made according to the pattern in Sinai or Horeb in tents, or even Solomon’s temple of fabulous stones, these were expired when God sent His Son and now Gods Son has spoken and said these words. “He who has seen me has seen the father”. There is no need to resurrect the old pictures and patterns or city because the voice from heaven said “This is my beloved Son, Him you will hear!”
So since Jesus said “if you have seen  Me you have seen the Father”, then does the Father have long hair, a glowing robe and a beard holding a radiating heart as depicted all over the world as the man Jesus? Once again that is the carnal mind trying to bring the Lord down from His Throne to appease the carnal nature. They want to make visible the invisible. They too think God is just a neighbor, like one of us. “When you put your doorway by my doorway you defile my Holy Name”. They think He has a mailbox?
 
However true it is that the ones who see Jesus see the Father, He showed us the Fathers true nature, not of manly features to the human eye but by word and deed with invisible attributes. His visage is not for the human eye, and it is not a man named Jesus who comes down to rule the planet in a man made structure that has a zip code in Israel. That ‘s silly. God has shown that He can manifest Himself to us any time and way He would like to, even through a talking donkey but that is not the point or the objective. The objective and purpose of salvation is to redeem a people to Himself. He became small for us to become big, not for Him to become the created, for he already did that . He did that  for us to be renewed, to be transformed. And His Son is the full and final revelation for how can a building or any other created thing be God? They couldn’t and they didn’t so God sent His Son “For the time now is when you will no longer worship in Sameria or Jerusalem or any where but spirit and truth and this is spirit and truth. It is for the invisible God to have your invisible interactive soul to Himself. 
 
As Peter said”receiving the end of your faith, the salvation of your soul. This is Gods prize from us and where His prize dwells in us. The body will return to dust as promised but it cannot add or take away what God is doing, for flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom. Nor can any physical eye see it. (1st Timothy 6.16 + Exodus 33.20) It comes not with observation but it is seen with the eyes of understanding. Eye has not seen nor ear heard, but they have been revealed by the spirit, even the deep things of (about) God. Yes those in His farthest reaches. Wow!
Think of it like this. If I had told you I went  to the house I was raised in and found a box of pictures in the attic, you would think of pictures maybe of my grandparents with an old car, maybe relatives from the old country. But if I then proceeded to show you some children’s building blocks with the alphabet, colored and having images of animals on various sides, you would think I was loopy. What do baby toys have to do with heirloom pictures?
 Similarly  it is written of in Ezekiel 40.2 that he was taken in visions OF GOD, then he talks of “something like the structure of a city” that the carnal mind goes to Israel on planet earth. Excuse me but didn’t the verse say visions OF GOD?  The Lord say’s that His ways were higher than our ways? I mean what does modern day Jerusalem or any day Jerusalem have to do with visions OF GOD? The likeness of a city? It is not a city but an aspect of God and a person of the Godhead 
So when Ezekiel saw visions of and OF GOD who is in heaven. The place before time. This place that is from God is in God. This place God rested from His works and calls us to himself.  In a place that was before anything was made. The things that exist there are only things that can be described as existing before creation. These things being eternal and in contrast to the things created being there before the word was said, this is (about)God, this is God, all of it, all things of God that are with God are God. These things are different aspects and characteristics of the nature of God being the components and inside workings of God being presented as His Kingdom.
Are we not receiving a Kingdom that cannot be shaken? That the shakable will be removed so that the eternal will remain? That our inheritance that is undefilable is reserved in Christ? The place where after all is burned up righteousness dwells? Well we have that now for those who have eyes to see. God is the only thing Eternal and everything that is eternal is an aspect of Him and this is His gift to us. So when Jesus said that the kingdom of God is at hand, this is that kingdom. “He comes and His reward is with Him” for it is Him. All things eternal are not of this world but existed before it. These are “In Him”, “in Christ”
After Jacob wrestled with the angel of God he said that he saw God “face to face”. He wasn’t talking about seeing with his physical eyes, for that is impossible for no man shall see Him and live, but Jacob did in fact see Him, with the eyes of his understanding. In the spirit. So too with Isaiah, he saw the Lord high and lifted up and the train of His robe filled the temple. And what about Moses? When the Lord was explaining the difference between the prophets and Moses He said the prophets would see him in visions but Moses would speak with him face to face.  Paul at his conversion he saw a light brighter than the sun. This is the light that shines in the heart of every man. Not humanly visible. Wow, if this could happen to each one of us! To have the eternal light from God Himself indelibly scorch His image on our hidden person, and this is what He does, this is called the “new name” but it is not new in that it was not before, it is just never fading but reserved in eternal glory. For whom He foreknew He predestined to be conformed, transformed into the image of His Son, these He called, He justified and He glorified, and this is not something that is actuated not at some second coming some 2000 years later in a distant point in time having a star date and a zip code. That is silly. You cannot pinpoint God in time or matter or any created thing. The eternal God cannot truly be a created. He would present a false self and that is not the truth.
From Jacob to Isaiah, Moses, Paul and all who knew God did so not with human reasoning attached to human senses. They all saw Glorious things of God, from God, about God and explained them from words and concepts common to their day.  “He spoke to them in parables and without a parable spake He not to them” Now He has spoken to us through His Son who said he who has seen Me has seen the Father. Thomas says “show us the Father” and this is what the carnal mind does, but Christ said “have you not been with me this long and have you not known Me?” And yet we formulate a series of events to take place to bring down to earth Him who always was and is and is to be non matter, non time dimensional. This is not knowing God and to do this too many times is actually rejecting God.
So simply put. The spoken things are things that are created to be un-created, and the things that were already are things eternal that cannot be un-created. This is His gift to all who follow Him. Now see if this verse from II Corinthians has new meaning.

17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, they are a new creature: old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

18 And all (new)things are OF GOD (from God, about God), who hath reconciled us to himself (not Him to the earth) by Jesus Christ, (to be in Christ where all things eternal are) and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; This is the eternal gospel message

So for those who believe this there is and exchange program. The visible for the invisible. Put these on.
The kingdom of God is at hand.

The Eternal Day, 2 Peter 3.18

Download PDF

In 2 Peter the last verse of the book has been translated exhorting us to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.

 
According to the footnote in Marshall’s Greek interlinear page 931, the phrase “now and forever” is more appropriately  rendered “in this age and the eternal day“.
 
The “eternal day” is the mystery here as it always is, it is eternity, the other age that is not in the realm of time and matter with days on 24 hour cycles. The eternal age being the eternal day where there is no night, and it has no sun for the lamb of  God is it’s light. “Its gates shall not be shut at all by day and there shall be no night. This takes place in the eternal city. These all are eternal realities all finished before the foundations of the world because they are not created by Gods word, they are descriptions of His anatomy.
 
If anything needs to be added or taken away, if any pillars, windows or doors need to be added to this place, any construction of any sort, then it is not eternal. It would be changing but you cannot add to or take away from the eternal nature of God. 
 
The eternal day being a different make up and composition can only accommodate eternal things. That is why scripture says our inheritance is reserved for us in heaven undefileable . It too is unchangeable and pre-existent. There is nothing in the eternal day that is not forever. When all creation is recalled and expired the only thing left is that which was. You will see that which was and is and is to come. This is the inheritance and the realization for the believer. 
 
And from Hebrews 11.14-16 Those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland, and truly if they had called to mind the land where they had come out, they would have opportunity to return. But now they desire a better, that is a heavenly one. This is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has a place prepared for them.
 
You get that? He has a city prepared for us. This city cannot be on earth made up of time and matter for all such things are temporary and have an end and God doesn’t do things over and over. What He does He does once. That is His trade mark.
 
Here is the place faith applies. For without which God is not pleased. Faith being the evidence of things not seen. The very proof. Everything He has for us is eternal and this can only be actualized by faith. Faith of a mustard seed moves mountains and so Sanai and all it’s mandates from the covenant of death are cast away into the sea being accomplished “In Christ”. We are called to recon all dead and all new. It’s like this;
 
2 Corinthians 5.
  14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus (have changed our thinking) that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

16 Therefore, (this is why) from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh (Adamic nature). Even though we have known Christ (in human form) according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer (ever again).17 Therefore, (this is why) if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;( a new kind of man) old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, (eternal replacements) who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, (this message)

 

This ministry is the business of taking people to Gods Kingdom. The place that was before the word was spoke or the Spirit ever hoovered. Before time and matter this place still exists and always will in its eternal unchanging, never getting old glory. All things (new) are of God and in God. This is what it means to be “In Christ”. To not be “in Adam” or “in the world” And the all things are hidden “in Christ”. The old things have passed away in His word and this must be received by faith. The transition, or transformation takes place in the invisible, un-noticeable to the human eye. As it were in the blink of an eye. A twinkling. The place where flesh cannot see but a working of the spirit. That which is flesh is flesh but this is spirit. For the time now is that we can worship the Father in spirit and truth and truth is only what remains after time and matter cease. That which was and is and is to come is already here and always has been. It is not to say; who will go up to heaven to bring it down, or who will go into the deep to bring it up? But what does the word say? It is near to you and even in your heart, the word of faith. The just lives by faith alone and the Kingdom of God is the Kingdom of faith.

 

His Kingdom is truth and His Kingdom is truly at hand.

The Revelation of Adam and The foreshadowing of Christ’s Revelation

Download PDF
Jesus in John 3 said of himself “We speak what we know and testify what we have seen”. He spoke of himself as being plural which is not surprising for He is the same one who said “let us make man in Our likeness”. When John wrote he specifically used the word “Ekeinos” which means “they” and “them” when talking about Christ, but the English translators interpretation was that into “him”, a singular person. So what John was trying to convey by choosing the word “ekeinos” is lost. John was speaking of the fullness of the Godhead being a plurality and being present in Jesus. I have other articles that go deeper into this, but my point here is that Jesus is a plurality and John called Him “They” and “Them”.
Now when we go back to the beginning and on the 6th day when God made man in His likeness he made Adam whole. Adam had not entered his deep sleep to be halved yet. It is in the first words about Adam that God “made him male and female created He them”. And “God blessed them and said to them let them be fruitful, let them multiply let them fill the earth. The Lord called him them like John called Christ them.
Adam in his beginning was a plurality in one as Christ is a plurality in one. “Let us make make man in Our likeness”.
That from the beginning which we have heard and seen we testify to you. Now for what came next.
The Revelation of Adam and The foreshadowing of Christ’s Revelation
 
 

Adam was half the man of Jesus because his rib was taken from him. His hidden insides were seen when his rib called his wife was exposed. This was the Revelation of Adam, the unveiling, the exposure of what would not otherwise have been seen. That is why the command was given that “the two shall become one”. To mend that tear. This man Adam who was made in the image of God. For God had said “Let Us make man in Our image and likeness” and “in His image he made them male and female”. So when Adam was halved, when his rib was removed he exposed not so much his own insides but the invisible workings of the eternal God, broken down for human consumption. For our understanding of Him divided in the two parts male and female. She was his hidden person.

 
But Christ did not do this. His Eve was not exposed. She was not unveiled physically. His Eve was ushered directly to the Son at the baptism when God said “this is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased”. God told John the baptizer “upon whom you see the Holy Spirit land upon and remain, this is He!” The true Son who replaced Adam. When the Holy Spirit descended “in bodily form” like a carbon copy she fit inside Him perfectly. She descended and “remained upon Him”. The Word of God and the Spirit of God became one. The two halves were fitted. They were united. They were wed.
Jesus could not of been “well pleased” of the Father if He were only half the image by being without His counterpart, because God made His image “male and female” and only when the two are one, do they reflect the nature of God. This is what qualifies Jesus to be The new man. The Adamic replacement and true God. Not just an image or likeness. “For in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead” in bodily form. Both parts together, “male and female made He them. For us to understand Him, He turned His image inside out in the persons of Adam and Eve. Jesus was right side in.
 
This is why John the baptist was called the “friend of the bridegroom”. He witnessed at the altar as the best man being called the friend of God. And John was able to testify to what he truly witnessed and he said “the Bridegroom has the Bride” “therefor my joy is fulfilled. His mission was accomplished. He saw the Word of God unite with the Breath of God who being united are the parents of the New Covenant of all those who receive the Word, who are born by the Spirit. This is what Christ meant when He said “I will not leave you orphans, I will sent you my helper My helpmate, the other comforter. He was talking about His hidden counterpart, “whom the world cannot know”. His Eve that was not taken from His side but remains “in Him” eternally. This is something Adam and Eve could not do. They were just a parable but now “in Christ we are told plainly about the Father.
 
In all of creation it is not common for a male to birth, nurse and raise offspring in any of the kind begets. The kind begets in scripture repeatedly states “after their own likeness and kind”. And in Noah’s ark it was “male and female” taken into the ark. The protected image. All others were washed away in the flood as abominations as should happen in the renewed mind. 
 
It is God in these two parts, being the origination of the male and female image that unite for reproduction of a species, is “The Father and Mother eternally one. God is one. It was the Adam He split for us to understand Him in the two parts male and female, this pictures the Word and Spirit being “bone of my bone” being the same kind as each other, spirit. We understand Jesus as the last Adam and first new man, but the Holy Spirit as the Bride? Yes! She is just behind the veil of understanding of the carnal mind “whom no man can know”.
 
It is in the creation of time and matter from the first 6 days that the Word of God and the Spirit of God appear to be separate persons.  And scripture says “the Spirit brooded on the face of the waters” showing Her anticipation of the baptism that would show their true oneness.
 
And in truth the baptism of Jesus by John just showed the union that took place when on the 7th day God rested from His works. Rested not in His works of creation but back to where They came. To the beginning is those who said “let Us make man in our image. The Word of God that created and the Spirit of God that co-created returned to the mouth of God from where They came. “His word does not return void”. It is only in time and matter that they are seen separated. This is the split thinking of the split Adamic nature in time and matter.
 
This then exposes the carnal mind that is enmity against God. The mind of unbelief against the Spirit. It cannot see the Bride and Groom united with physical eyes therefor it must not be now but at a 2nd coming. It has a hard time understanding that Christ was born the King of kings because He pre-existed that way. People have multiple formulas of raptures and resurrections  blood moons, Nibiru and catastrophe’s and such before Christ can be crowned King in a city built on earth.
 
A physical man king in a physical city is a fascination of the carnal mind, a fairy tale of fallen fairy’s, doctrines of demons blowing fresh winds with every change in the news, being hardened of heart having not the eyes to see or the ears to hear. These are at odds with God’s eternal un-changeable existence. That which is flesh is flesh, that which is spirit is spirit and it is God who is seeking such to worship Him in Spirit and truth not flesh stuck in time and matter looking to another Jesus to save them.
As Paul had said in that day, you observe days, months, seasons and years, I am afraid for you that I have labored in vain. Or as we would understand in modern English. You have taken the realities of God that are understood only by the Spirit and you have His coming laid out on a timeline defined by raptures and catastophies and resurrections that point to a single event on earth. It is To Him who is eternally as He always was and does not have to become. This is a true and faithful saying.
 
The Kingdom of God is At Hand! The King is in Zion. The invitation still stands, “Come”

See that you do not refuse Him who speaks from heaven”

He who calls us to His eternal glory through Jesus Christ”
 
This is the place of our calling. We should not be waiting for a kingdom to come but accept the invitation to ascend to the voice now. To “lay aside every weight and sin that snares us and “run the race with endurance. Run where? to the voice. To Him who calls
Scripture lays out the concept of becoming new. We exchange the old for the new now, and we do this by faith. We put off maliciousness, selfishness, anger and hate then we put on the polar opposites. The things we put off are associated with the Adamic nature. We become new.
This is one of the things Christ showed us by Him coming as a man. That this work takes place in our human body. “As He is so are we in the world”. We do not need to leave this world to get on with our eternal life and this takes place by accepting the gift and learn to appropriate that now, to put it on. “As you have received Him, walk in Him”.
It would be a fallacy for the scriptures to say we are new if it were not true, but it says  “Be ye renewed in the spirit of your mind”.  If we can do this our thinking shifts it’s focus off future events and hopes of the next work of God. Future thinking plugs our spiritual ears from hearing “Him who speeks from heaven”. Future thinking comes from not understanding our calling, To Him who speaks from heaven” who “calls us to His eternal glory”. He did not put us in limbo waiting for His next move. His work “comes not with observation”  Christ said “The father has been working and I have been working” This kind of work has nothing to do with time and matter, the old creation for that was finished the 6th day, but the work is “to bring many sons (offspring) to glory.
For the most part all those who seek the kingdom of God want the same thing. And what does scripture say about those who seek this? Romans 11.7-8 “What then Israel did not obtain what it seeks? But the elect have obtained it and the rest were hardened, Just as it is written “God has given them the spirit of stupor, eyes not to see, ears not to hear to this very day”.
Well we ask obtain what? The object of our faith. As then, so also now. The visible church for the most part is hardened with the spirit of stupor and focused on a future work of God to be seen with human eyes, but God finished His work in creating time and matter from the 6 days of  creation. He then completed the work of salvation at the cross. The only work now teaching this salvation by His spirit. This is an invisible work and the reason He says “an evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign”. A visible work. Even back then “No sign shall be given but Jonah”. So too now the sign given is His word. Heb 1 “God has spoken through His Son” All things being accomplished to not need to be redone over and over. Man does that not God
To understand this correctly we are not re-created into a new thing that has not been before but more accurately we are being un-created in the sense that by faith we put off all things from the 6 days of creation and we put on the new man who is created in the same image as He who made us. We put on what already was, we put on Christ and grow in His attributes and share the Glory that never fades. The Glory that is always at it’s peak of brightness that is with Him who never changes or gets old, but always new. This is the new creation.
Blessings

Kind begets kind, bone of my bone

 Kind begets kind and Bone of My Bone.

Here we have Gods eternal laws of the distinction of creatures. From the 6 days of creation He designates categories for the different creatures. He divided day and night, heavens and earth, land and sea, and filled them with their respective creatures. “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures and let the birds fly above the face of the earth; each according to their kind” and “let the earth bring forth the living creatures, beasts and insects according to its kind. And God saw that it was good”. Each had their respected category and family. Each one according to its own kind.
 
We understand that fish don’t mate with birds and cattle don’t mate with insects, man doesn’t mate with beasts. Cat begets cat, dog begets dog, worms worms. 
 
The rule of kind brings forth according to its kind has spiritual value. John 3.6 “that which is born according to the flesh is flesh and that which is born according to the spirit is spirit”. And Jesus spoke to Nicodemus as rendered correctly from the Greek “You must be born from above”. Not born again.
 
This eternal God given law is why flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom. It is totally the wrong make up. And just as fish cannot live on earth, and oxygen breathing creatures cannot live in the sea or they would die, so too only spirit can live in the spirit and even the spiritual invisible world has subsections. As the earth has lower depths of the sea, land and atmosphere and the heavens, so too the spirit. And God lives in what is described as the highest heavens. Above all the created realms visible and invisible. He is non-material, invisible, non dimensional, before all things.
 
So here is the mystery. Why is it theologians speak of a bride that is being made to be a wife for the Son of God? If Christ was made then it would be okay, but Christ has always been, for He is eternal. God would have to violate His own eternal laws of creation and make His own hybrid. The very thing the people, creatures and fallen angels were judged and wiped off the face of the earth for in the days of Noah. Saying ” The sons of God came into the daughters of men”. They bore mighty men of old who were renown. The laws of distinction of species of kind begets kind were abridged. 
 
But somehow in peoples understanding God can violate His own principles and not be a hypocrite?  No disrespect meant to our creator here. This should jar our mindset. This should help us re-think the concept of becoming a bride, a thing to be made for a Groom with eternal attributes. Him from before time mating with a creation of time and matter? Our brains have committed the same crime as those in the days of Noah. A created thing to beget offspring with the eternal Son of God. Hmm! Sounds like the days of Noah to me.
 
Adam after scanning and naming all the creatures recognized that he had no counterpart and God said “it is not good for man to be alone”. So God brought forth Eve to Adam and he said “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh”. She didn’t have feathers or gills or hooves or antennae. She was in all ways similar to him. Just as pre-school children are taught the male female association for procreation, similarly we need to understand  that the same type of make-up applies to the Son of God and His Bride. His Bride surely is not a building on earth. For He says “Heaven is my throne earth is my footstool, where is the house you will build for me? Can an ant make an anthill to house a human? That is more logical than man building something to house God. Man creating something for the creator? Listen to yourself. 
 
Some would say, well that is silly. We are becoming the bride of Christ. But if the bride is becoming, as though she had not been, she would be totally unsuitable to be the bride of Christ, for Christ just is. Hebrews 13.8 The same yesterday today and forever. He could not say to her “you are bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh, for she is of time and He is from eternity. That is like mixing heavenly beings with earthly like in Noah’s day. But that which is flesh is flesh and spirit is spirit.  It violates Gods own laws of creation given for us to understand Him. Christ said repeatedly things like “I am not of this world” “my kingdom is not from here” And if kind begets kind then Christ has a Bride that is not of this world. She is not from the lower created heavens or the earth or sea. She must, according to His laws, be pre-existent. She must be from before time and matter and before the manifestation of the spoken word. She must be before all creation and in the beginning. If she is not then she simply cannot qualify as kind begets kind and bone of my bone. The Bride of Christ is the complimentary counterpart with the same composition and makeup of being eternal. No feathers no beaks no fins no antennae no fur no flesh no angel. She is before all things and co-creator.  
 
She is the third person of the Godhead and seen in the act of creation. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth and the Spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters”. God the word and God the Holy Spirit created all things by the edict of the Father. He spoke word and breath and they are Him. All equal. 
 
The Holy Spirit is the only one who qualifies by being eternal, by being before all things that were created, and by being instrumental in creating. No created thing is bone of His bone. Anything that is becoming is in transition from a beginning and is disqualified. The church on earth is not becoming the bride of Christ. It is only in the understanding by the renewing of our minds that we become aware of these eternal truths. That we awaken to these eternal realities, but She was and is and is to come as is He. Bone of His bone of the same structure of non-matter. All matter is temporary. For the earth and all it’s works shall be burned for the eternal to remain. Heavenly Jerusalem that comes down of God from Heaven,  being “the Kingdom from the foundations of the world. The before time. Being “that which is from the beginning. While we look not to the things that are seen But to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are temporary but the things that are unseen are eternal. In God’s counterpart is as Eternal as is He
Adam displayed a split image of God, but in Christ they are united. John the Baptist said in the Book of John chapter 3  He who has the bride is the bridegroom. It’s a done deal. They are one but not androgynous.
It was God that said “let us make man in our likeness”. This mystery is also pictured with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses and others who married their sisters and cousins. They reunited with their kind all from where they came picturing those from above. 
 
The breath of God is the mysterious 3rd person of the Godhead “whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Her or knows Her, and does not come from, but you know Her for she dwells with you and will be in you”. She is as Christ said “another comforter”. Like Christ but not Christ but another comforter like Him. Yes bone of His bone. Yes the Bridegroom has the Bride therefor this joy of mine is fulfilled. John 3.29 And John 3.31 with better Greek rendering “They must increase, I must decrease, They who come from above are above all, he who is of the earth speaks of the earth. They who come from above are above all”. And who are the they? The Bride and the Groom. They who replace Adam and Eve. 
 
This is speaking the truth, this is in the scripture. Adam and Eve the parents of the first man were a type of the Bridegroom and Bride of the new man, and as They are from above it is from Them we are to be born from above. As Paul said in Galatians four of heavenly Jerusalem, she is the mother of us all. We are not waiting for the bride-to-be Manifest or to appear for as it was set of Christ my kingdom of not of this age she is the kingdom. She is that City come down from God Of Heaven being kind of his kind in bone of his bone.
So think about it. If the church is waiting to become a bride, how then are they born again and from whom? If there is not a replacement for Adam and Eve, then there is no new creation, no heavenly offspring, no one born from above. You have to wait for His bride to become for you to be begotten like them. Your hope is in vain. Either you are this new creation or you are still in your sins and what did Christ accomplish if not for us to be new? What did His blood wash us from if not to be new? A limbo creature waiting for another 2000 years? From Him who spoke and immediately it was? But we are new if we are in Him and in His Spirit.
 
Kind begets kind and those born from above are His begat kind. Are you of this kind? Who are your parents? This is the before time kind pictured in Kind begets kind, bone of my bone. Truth from the truth. The Heavenly city that “descends down from God”, being from Him in make up and composition. This is the Kingdom prepared from the foundation of the world. This is why Jesus said “my kingdom is not of this world”, distinguishing it from the “The kingdom of God at hand”. This was Christ’s opening statement in His ministry and the reason for all His words.
The kingdom of God is at hand!
