Paul claims his true heritage is from Abraham, which dispells the idea of him being a Jew and affirmed with these words from 2 Corinthians 11. “22 Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I.”
Paul further defines his lineage with these words from Romans. “For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew” But God did cast away that final generation with these words “that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah”.
This is why Paul said ” For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ instead of my brethren, and my countrymen according to the flesh”. Showing their divorce from God.
Many consider the elect and foreknowledge of God to be modern day Jews but scripture just does not support that.
Paul was not out to promote Judaism but the faith of the father’s being Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as we will further demonstrate. These are the ones Paul’s roots are from and who he aligns his faith to, as should we.
This faith of the fathers is something before Moses and before “The Law and Prophets. “The law was added till faith comes”. And “The law was given to make sin exceedingly sinful”. And so it did, so we put it away.
The Law culture centered on sin and sacrifices is not a new Covenant focus. The Glory is what we set our sights on. You become your fixation. What those of Moses did over and over, of up the putting up and taking down, of feasts and sacrifices for sin, Christ did once, then returned to His natural habitat of Spirit and Truth.
The Law culture with all their offices, buildings, fixtures and feasts are fulfilled and expired. They are shelved for reference only. Their purpose was temporary, Christ’s is eternal.
From Exodus 3
When we look at Moses, he was instructed by “The Great I AM” to promote the fathers faith with these words “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations”. So what is it to be remembered forever? And what is suppose to be our fixation? “The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob” and not the Law culture. That was the plan B.
God instructs Moses saying “16 Go and gather the elders of Israel together, and say to them, ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared to me.” If you remember, Paul validated his apostleship by “having seen the Lord” because the Lord appeared to him as well. He defined his encounter with Christ, not as a burning bush but as “the bright light from Heaven” who visited Paul many times.
If we clearly understood this, a second coming appearing has no relevance for us because we too can be of those “having seen the Lord” now in His natural element of Spirit and Truth, to which we are called. This becomes our validation point of seeing Him and knowing Him perfectly, because we accept Him as he is. We too are “accepted in the beloved”.
Christ spoke to us in John 14 saying “those who have seen Me have seen the Father”. And “from here on you have known Him and seen Him“. And so we do. Amen!
In Deuteronomy 29 God offers the Law culture a second chance.
They had the earlier promises of God to the father’s re-introduced to them after their 40 year sentence in the wilderness for unbelief was complete saying; “These are the words of the covenant which the Lord commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, besides the covenant which He made with them in Horeb” meaning, other then the Ten Commands written on something that resembled the condition of their hearts, stone. Showing for us that the 40 years was an expected detour, but not God’s perfect will. His perfect will was and is for us to have the same faith in Christ as Paul and the pre-law forefathers.
Moses completed this re-introduction to the pre-law Covenant of faith from the father’s with these words from Deuteronomy 30, 11 “For this commandment which I command you today is[c]not too mysterious for you, nor is it far off. 12 It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will ascend into heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ 13 Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ 14 But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it.
Which if you think about it, this should be fairly soothing to those who are bound by keeping laws of having to do this and do that to try and please God.
What God proved to the Israelites after they crossed the red Sea, was that he was perfectly capable of feeding them and housing them and clothing them and keeping them warm and giving them great opportunities to advance toward Him. And this was reiterated by the words of Christ saying, for even the lilies of the field are clothed more than Solomon how much more shall He clothe you?
This is where Paul taps into the Hebrew scriptures, to circumvent the law and graft into the New testament, bridging over the redundancies that the faithless flounder in.
Paul quoted Moses succinctly from this when defining the faith of the fathers and belief in Christ, as seen here from Romans 10, the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ down from above) 7 or, “ ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). 8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”12 For there is no preference for the Jew over Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For “whoever callson the name of theLordshall be saved.”
As with all the old testament analogies, the 40 years and all that followed of those who reject the call, were given so that we wouldn’t have to experience their mistakes first hand and avoid those pitfalls ourselves.
Ultimately Christ closed that era as Paul spells it out in Galatians 3 like this “13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us, for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”, 14that the blessing of Abraham would come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, for us to receive the promise of the Spirit through faith”. That’s a good point, faith not works.
Note the term “gentiles”. This is a reiteration of what the Lord promised to Abraham. That “In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed”. All of the nation’s means Gentiles. However the Jews call the Gentiles “Goyim” which means “cows”. I don’t think God likes that insult to man made in His image and likeness or of the redeemed from all Nations. As Paul told Peter in his hypocrisy “God is a respecter of no man” in context of Peter favoring Judaism.
If we truly understand the wilderness lessons second hand, we are the luckier ones. Even if not, we are fortunate to be able to get back on track after we learn.
The same can be said of Paul who transitioned from law, who said “now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church,
It is the grace of God, that we don’t experience everything first hand, and the purpose of scripture.
Paul further promotes the faith of the father’s being Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, in Galatians 4 ” 21 Tell me, you who desire to be under the law, do you not hear the law? 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. 23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman (was born by the Spirit) through promise, 24 which things are symbolic. For these are the two covenants: (the first alagory refers to law) from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar— 25 for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, which corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children— 26 but the Jerusalem above (being compositionally different) is free, which is the mother of us all.”
Notice: there is no talk of another covenant but the one already empowered and put in place for our crossover and salvation.
This corresponds to The New Covenant established by the blood of Christ who is the heir of the promises to the Father’s as Paul explains here “16 Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ.” This is for all who are “in Christ” who are renewed in the spirit of their minds by this Gospel we profess.
So it is us who are heirs of these things of Christ as Paul further explains “Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. 8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, (meaning Moses too) saying,“In you all the nations shall be blessed.”9 So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.” Showing for us that modern Jewery has no preference with God as Paul also clarifies here saying “26 For you are all offspring of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is not the Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all (equal) one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise”. Even as Paul also says in Galatians “God is a respecter of no man”.
Our only access point is the Christ of the cross. Not as though He is still hanging there. No, He is in Glory.
Christ told the eleven right before the cross, “you shall not follow Me now (meaning the cross) but you shall follow Me after, meaning, to the Father in Glory. Some of us already did that. Can you hear the wind of the Spirit say “Come up hither?” Where? With us the elect.
We are those who have put off the body of the sin of the flesh and put on another in the image of Christ in Glory, which is our objective in conjunction with Christ. (Eph 4.13) Bask in this Light.
The Kingdom of God is at hand, exclusively for you,, if you are able to receive it.
Christ accomplished salvation at the cross and said, “It is finished.” Christ comes to us now in spirit, not to do a new work, but to reinforce in us the Work He has done. He comes to us in His forever construct of being “the same yesterday, today and forever,” to open our eyes to concepts about Himself. He then shows us how to implement and actualize them now, one revelation at a time until He is fully realized in us, until we are fully transformed and transfigured into His Glorious image.
We have this promise in 1 John 3 We know that when He comes and is revealed, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. 3 And everyone that hath this hope in them, purifieth themselves, even as He is pure. Yes, we have this hope, this aspiration and we have this cause and effect to be like Him. This is what it means to be godly, meaning, like the Son of God.
Just as Christ said, “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him”. If you accept Him as He is.
We don’t need to physically die or wait for some 2nd coming man from heaven to deliver us from the ills of this age. We already have the cure. That’s what salvation means. For this we have a Savior. “God sent His Son not into the world to condemn the world but to save.” He doesn’t come to rescue us later.
Peter tells us that “we have everything that pertains to God-like -ness, having escaped the corruption in the world. Check it out. (2 Peter 1)
At Paul’s conversion Christ came to him and said, “I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.” Meaning Christ would come to Paul on numerous occasions, in His forever construct, to show Himself and to unveil Himself. Why? So that we could become what we see because we see Him as He is. It is as; we behold as in a mirror the Glory of the Lord. We are transfigured into the self same image, from the Glory to the Glory, as by the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3.18)
This Light, that Paul witnessed was 7 times brighter than humanly possible, would make multiple appearances over time to complete Paul’s conversion, showing to us that the only work left to do is the inner, invisible work of conversion and transfiguration.
Paul could only understand and assimilate so much at a time. Even as Christ said to the eleven, “I still have many things to say to you, however you cannot bear them now.” Because of these truths, we can see that the greater revelation of who Christ is, is developed through successive visitations and revelations.
Paul’s Epistles show this progression. Paul started out with some distorted Pharisaic views. From those views he needed to be cleansed and transformed. We should not be surprised that his Epistles would display these transformations, that are seen in the form of contradictions and inconsistencies of the things Paul writes. With this we can understand the order in which he wrote them. Why? Because his writings show his growth. His later Epistles override his earlier statements.
In Ephesians Paul said, “How that by revelation Christ made known to me the mystery as I have briefly written already.” This shows us that Christ made good on His continual appearances. That He is not restricted to just 1st and 2nd comings as many erroneously suppose. He is the, “Behold l stand at the door and knock” even now. So don’t expect Him to show up in a form where you can shake His hand and Pat him on the shoulder.
Thomas said he would only believe in the resurrection of Christ if he could stick his fingers in Christ’s wounds. Thomas was able to do so after Christ appeared to him “in another form.” Mark 16.12 and John 16.19 “The doors were shut and the disciples were assembled, Jesus came and (mysteriously) stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.”20 When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.”
The truth is Christ said, “Wherever two or more are gathered in My name, there am I in your midst.” His Kingdom is proverbially at hand, but not carnally manifested. He manifested Himself to His disciples behind closed doors, without using the doors. Normal flesh cannot do this. Flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom (1 Corinthians 15.50). So He doesn’t appear like that.
We can see that Paul’s 1st Epistles were still influenced by his Pharisaic roots, while his later Epistles were clearer and more developed in New Covenant realities. This is because Christ showed Paul mysteries and consecutive revelations to accomplish this.
Paul was in transition, so we must understand that not all scripture has equal value. If it did, Christ would not have countered Satan’s scripture with another, “For it is written.” ( Matthew 4)
Paul could not understand the full message all at once, and we shouldn’t expect ourselves to either. We should see a continual growth pattern over time.
With this in mind, let us not be found stuck on introductory concepts of the faith. Like the writer of Hebrews says, “Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to [a]perfection (an attainable goal), not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2 of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. 3 And this [b]we will do if God permits.”
Warning: if you find yourself on your knees at the cross with continual confessions of fighting Satan and sin, you are not getting the gospel. God begat no beggars. God sent His Son to the cross to become our sin, so we don’t have to. For on Him was laid the iniquity of us all, and by His stripes we are healed,” if you can learn to accept this.
It is at the cross that we drop off our Adamic curse and leave with the blessing. We set our sights on the upward call of God in Christ, not the curse of the stench of sin laid on the Son. He is risen!
Our full inheritance is “in Christ,” our new residence. As John said, “He who sins has neither seen Him or known Him and (in Him) there is no sin.” Are you (in Him)? Why are you hanging out at the cross? Sin is not your job, your focus or your calling. Heavenly Glory is. You give Satan power and glory by dwelling on the stench. Christ is our Passover lamb and even the Israelite’s were told to “eat it in haste,” you need to get up and move forward. Get as far away from it as you can because scripture is your delivery mechanism.
You are called to godliness, which is God’s likeness and glory. “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” But we have the Gospel that restores this.
“In Adam” the was glory lost. “In Christ” the Glory is restored. If you are “in Christ” you are no longer part of the Adamic race, you are fallen no more. You have to learn to see what God sees, and He sees His Son in you. You are joint heirs of the things of God.
With any inheritance there must be a death to implement it and Christ died. The New Covenant is signed in His blood to expire the Old Covenant and there will be no 3rd covenant. Christ said He was finished, He hung His head and ceased. He took our death to die no more, He died for sin to deal with it no more. He defeated Satan who was not His battle but man’s. As a man He recaptured the Glory from Satan that Satan stole from mankind in the Garden and He gives it back to us, to those who have faith in Him. “We are in Him” this is true.
This is why we are baptized into His death; to walk in newness of life, Resurrection life. As Paul said to “recon your old body dead. These are the basic principles of faith that set you free. Satan, sin and death have no hold on us any more. We are the Elect. Amen!
We start out with carnal mindsets. Kind of like a detective saying, “Give me just the facts please, I want to see the evidence.” Like Thomas said, “Let me put my fingers in the holes in your hands.” Of which Christ replied; but more blessed are those who do not see and yet believe because we get what carnal eyes can’t see.
You see, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen.” Meaning, these consecutive revelations for Paul and ourselves never take place in the physical realm; however, the conversion of the inner man of the spirit affects the carnal man tremendously. The new body is like the Lord’s from Heaven as Paul learned. “44 It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 48 As was the [k]man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. 49 As we have borne the image of the man of dust, we[l] can also bear the image of the heavenly Man. (1 Corinthians 15) At this point, Paul still did not understand the new birth for the new body, that both can simultaneously exist. That as a caterpillar cannot understand the life and flight of a butterfly, so, too, the carnal senses cannot experience the life of faith. Otherwise Christ would not have said “seeing with their eyes they see not, and hearing with their ears they hear not, for it is with the heart that one must see in here to understand the things of God.
This is why Christ told Nicodemus that, “Ye must be born again,” and this one is not from the womb. Unless one does new sensory receptors, they cannot see or enter the Kingdom of God, which is why they expect a kingdom made on earth because they are yet carnal. this is why Paul prayed that the eyes of your understanding may be opened to know the hope of your calling.
Many of us have learned how to put off the old and put on the new, as Paul learned by the time he wrote Colossians 3, “Since you have put off the old man with his deeds,and you have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge in the image and likeness of Him who created us.” This is to be a foregone conclusion. These words are fulfilled in Paul, and in those of us who have followed this transition by the Holy Spirit.
God’s things are compositionally different. That is why, “That which is born of the flesh isflesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” 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.” (John 3) This is the composition that can appear behind closed doors, or that can resemble a gardner, or a stranger on the road to Emmaus.
This is our journey and why scripture calls us pilgrims and sojourners. To follow Christ to where He is. In the book of Acts, the believers were called the people of “The Way” first, because they were going somewhere. Where? Jerusalem, but not the one in Israel. They were going to Heavenly Jerusalem. This is why those who loved Jerusalem on earth persecuted the ones with heavenly aspirations. The same goes today, even as Paul explained through Jacob and Esau of old that those of the flesh always persecute and reject those of the spirit.
This is what Christ meant when He said, “Let us go up from here.” How? Through these consecutive revelations, let us go up to Heavenly Jerusalem, “The Kingdom prepared from the foundations of the world.”
We must get this point; that a trade off takes place, old for new. Earthen, for Heavenly. Even as Paul instructed us to “cast off the bondwoman and her son. The two Jerusalem’s cannot simultaneously exist in importance in your mind. You have to love one and hate the other, to make the cut. “For this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which is on earth, and is in bondage with her children— 26 but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all, ” which comes down from Heaven, whose construct is according to the measure of a man who is of an angel.” Like Paul learned to say for us to understand that “we are living stones built up a habitation of God in the Spirit” which is God’s natural element that we’ve learned to associate with.
The same is true when Paul said in Romans 10, “So then all Israel shall be saved.” Was He talking of the Israel of that day which was a plot of land with fixtures? Or maybe the Israel that was a people walking through the desert? Are they the ones to be saved?
You see the first introduction with Moses with God saying, “Israel is my first born Son,” showing for us the real Israel is a type of Christ. The body of Christ. Of those who are in Christ. Even as Paul learned correctly in 1 Corinthians 10.
“The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the [e]communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 17 For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.
18 Observe Israel after the flesh: Are not those who eat of the sacrifices [f]partakers of the altar?”
Paul shows us here that Old Testament visuals were given only to show invisible realities “in Christ,” the true Israel of the invisible. We who “in Christ” are a part of the body of Christ and members of one another. Even as Christ quoted, “Lo, the volume of the book was written about Me,” affirming that all of scripture is given only to make visible, and knowable invisible realities with God “in Christ” for us to assemble ourselves like His same self. And we are in Him this is true, in the Father and the Son.
Any other such application of Israel or Jerusalem, glorifies another. All glory to our Heavenly Father for teaching us these things. We too are the body of Christ and in the true Israel who is Christ. The fulfillment of all things are in God’s Son. Amen! To take them out of His Son is to take them out of context and out of Christ. We who are in Christ see our inheritance here.
God’s desire is that we fully enjoy Him now in His totality. As Paul learned that,”God has given us every spiritual blessings in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus.” This is so we can enjoy the delicacies the Godhead enjoys even now, if we are “in Christ” the Son of God, and the only Israel that matters to the Father. Are you palating this? Taste and see that the Lord is good, with your new senses.
Will all of Israel be saved? But of course. But not the plot of land on earth. Dirt has no lasting purpose with God. The flesh came from it and to that it will return.
The idea that a modern day Israel with a modern day Jew as being beneficiaries of the scriptures is steeped in Phariseeism. Cut that off. Like Paul said of the circumcision, “I would that they would castrate themselves. Paul also confronted Peter publicly saying, “You being a Jew living in the manner of a gentile, why do you compel the gentiles to live as a Jew.” Showing for us Peter’s hypocrisy. Even Peter was in transition to help develop the Gospel.
With these principals in mind, we can see throughout Paul’s Epistles that he may flounder, but in his later writings he straightens them out. You can see the changes and exchanges take place. Old for new, visible for invisible, physical things for spiritual. Even as Christ spoke to the Samaritan woman at the well with these words, ” The time that is coming is already here when you will not worship the Father in Samaria or Jerusalem but in Spirit and Truth.” So we do, we are the true Israel of God of those who are in Christ called the Elect. Amen!
Paul was a Pharisee from the beginning. The Pharisees challenged Christ before they ordered His arrest and death. They challenged Him because He was King of a coming kingdom called “The Kingdom of God at hand.” The apostates who controlled the replica on earth called Jerusalem thought it was important to God, and thought of Christ and His Jerusalem as being preposterous as shown here.
Luke 20.20 Now when Christ was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The Kingdom of God does not come with observation;21 nor will they say,‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed,the kingdom of God iswithin you.” Showing us that the things within supercede the things without.
The carnal copies were for instructive purposes only. To make visible the invisible to the human mind, of the things that pertain to the Spirit. As God said to Moses, “See that you make all things according to the pattern I showed you on the Mount.” God was showing that there was an invisible original in which the physical things were patterned after. As Hebrews says, they were only “copies of the Heavenly.” (Hebrews 9.23+) Christ was speaking of His home of the pre-created realm, the place that we are called to participate in now as “The Kingdom prepared from the beginning” before time in eternity, the forever place that never changes or fades, that is forever new. Our stuff gets old, His does not.
During the time in which Paul was a Pharisee, he was looking for a coming kingdom using carnal observations when Christ sought him out. The verse above applied to Paul as well. He still had that view in Thessalonians when he tried to explain Christ’s coming with observable events saying “for that Day will not come unless…” Then Paul goes on to describe observable events because he still had some Pharisee in him.
You see the Pharases chiding with Christ in John 8 and Christ told them “Abraham rejoiced to see My Day. He saw it and was glad.” Which day? The Day of the Lord that Paul was trying to lay out in 2 Thessalonians as future events that follow Satan’s demise. But Satan was defeated by the cross happened by “The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, showing us the magnitude of His effect.
Eternity means past, present and future, of Him who was and is and is to come, who changes not. Even as Hebrews said “Christ is the same yesterday today and forever. Amen!
As understood in the Garden of Eden “in the day that you eat of the tree of knowledge you shall surely die”? The death was the loss of the breath of life called The Holy Spirit. In that day was death by vacancy of the Spirit. They became dead to the things of God. But in Christ it is restored. Just as Paul said about Christ “cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”. The cross becomes our tree of life.
We are “in Adam or “in Christ”. In that day you shall surely die, or “In That Day”, a phrase from the Old Covenant, and is equal to “The Day of the Lord”. We who are “in Christ”, are “in That Day”. We rejoice and we are glad like Christ said of Abraham. We rejoice and are glad too.
After that Paul rightly asserts of Satan “whom the Lord through assorted events will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming”. Which saying is true, however the brightness of Christ’s coming is not an event, but through assorted revelations from Christ, being the same bright light revisiting, that Paul had first encountered on the road to Damascus, who told Paul “I have appeared to you for you to testify of the things I have shown you, and of the things I have yet to reveal to you”. Paul was still expecting physical events to happen for Christ’s comings, but it is the bright light that transforms and transitions us to our full inheritance.
Even as a more mature Paul told Timothy about Christ “16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see”. Who also said that what he learned was not by man, but by revelation of Christ, showing us what direction to look for Him. From within.
Christ is not experienced through a series of planetary events of catastrophes, but a series of revelations and bright lights from heaven like Paul’s first encounter saying “who are you Lord”. Christ is the Word of God, coupled with the Breath of God called the Holy Spirit, that enlightened Paul.
So too for us because it is “with the breath of His mouth (Word), and the Brightness of His coming that we defeat all of our obstacles too. We call them “revelations” and Word applied through our mouths with results as if God Himself said it. In this way we do the works of Christ too. Even as it says in Isaiah 8 “here am I and the children God has given Me. They are for signs”. And so we are.
It is by God’s Spirit and God’s word, with His special visitations to us that we can follow Paul who said that ” for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ would show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him” so that we could follow him, to learn from his mistakes so we wouldn’t have to go through the same hardships.This is why “no other foundation can be laid then the foundation of the apostles and the prophets with Christ our Chief cornerstone”. We can stand on their works without having to re-experience the same hardships and lessons. The cross is not ours to bear. This is why Christ said “greater works shall you do (than Me) because I go to the Father. And it is because He went to the Father, and we recon our old person buried with Him, to now recon to be alive with Him through the operation of faith to fulfill Paul’s pleading for us to be reconciled to the Father. Our works are now of a Heavenly sort.
This is why we are called overcomers. The carnally concrete things of creation have no hold on those who are Heavenly called the Elect who are living stones, of the light that John also experienced that also came to him in the same fashion as Paul’s. John said ” Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel”. In reference to our new personage like Christ “whom no man has seen or can see”, reconciled, or connected to the Heavenly Father by the Holy Spirit, in Spirit and Truth.
Showing how and what we are apart of now, of something that is not time sensitive. It is not through a series of events to be carnally simulated, but a succession of “bright lights from Heaven”. Like Paul encountered “of the things you have seen, and if what I will yet show you” as spoken of by the Lord.
Paul had to have known the Lord to be qualified to be an apostle and he did, but not untill the encounter on the road to Damascus. And because he saw Christ in His pre-incarnate condition, he actually knew Christ better than those who were stuck on the man He was on earth before the cross. This is why Paul said “we once knew Christ according to the flesh, but from now on we don’t look at Him like that anymore. And for this reason we no longer regard any believer according to the flesh because God made Him who knew no sin, to become our sin, for us to become His righteousness”. We have to learn to see God in ourselves and others that identify with “the bright light” as being “living stones” whose according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel”. He who the Son sets free are truly free? Put on your Heavenly attire and proudly walk among the stones of fire here at His throne.
As the writer of Hebrews put it “Let us therefore go boldly to the Throneroom of grace. And from Paul “let this mind be in you that was is Christ who being in the form of a man, thought it not robbery to be equal with God. This is the gift you don’t deserve on human merit, but taking God at His word, that we are joint heirs of the things in Christ. With this God is pleased and allows us to enter “The Joy of the Lord”.
Let us not despise our birthright like Esau who for one morsal of stupid thinking caused his ejection. As Paul said “I strive to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of me”. Like Joseph and the robe of many colors. We too are a patchwork of what we have collected and assembled in the spirit of our mind to be Royalty of another Kingdom that comes down of God from Heaven whose first appearance is a blinding light but takes on more definition through successive encounters.
When God opened His mouth, what came forth was His Word and His Spirit with the specific task of taking us to the Father. This is why Paul pleaded for us to be reconciled to the Father. The Word said “follow me to where I am”. Who also said “the Holy Spirit will come and tell you all things”. “The Holy Spirit will take what is mine and manifest it to you”. To break down the things of God into portions you are able to appropriate. When your special test comes, you should be ready. To do what? To duplicate what Christ did and overcome one enemy after another through the word and working of faith, by applying God’s word, through your mouth, at the behest of the Holy Spirit coupled with the oxygen in your lungs so that you too overcome each challenge with the Breath of His mouth and the Brightness of His coming with your lips. “Who is it then that overcomes the world? Those who believe that Christ already came in the flesh”. 1 John 5
Christ said “up till now you have asked for nothing in My name (because you ask for carnal things). Ask and your joy will be complete. But you must ask in faith without doubting, for a double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Let not that man think ha shall receive anything from the Lord”. But those of us who waver not at the promises of God speak to the mountainous obstacles in our life “be thou moved into the sea and it shall be done for you. Some of us did that. We moved Mt Sinai, Satan Sin and death squarely at the cross where they hang limp and dead, and affirm the words Paul learned later in his development from Colossians that11 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 faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 having wiped out the [i]handwriting of requirements that was against us, 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, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
If you can learn to understand and appropriate these sayings from Paul, you can sidestep a lot of his personal struggles and sufferings and move on to perfection as explained with these words from Colossians as well, that we “became ministers according to the [g]stewardship from God which was given to us for you, to fulfill the word of God, 26 the [h]mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to us, His saints. 27 To us God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope and focus of glory. 28 Him we preach, warning everyone and teaching everyone in all wisdom, that we may present everyone perfect in Christ” in the here and now before your physical departure. This is the reason you are a sojourner on earth.
This is how “The Kingdom of God is at hand” even now! Amen
By the time Paul had wrote to Timothy, he had understood more of why God used him. Having been a Pharisee of the most religious sect, taking pleasure in the death of Stephen, and a persecutor of the people of “The Way”. Which is a collection of sojourners and pilgrims of the departure from the persecution of the first believers in Jerusalem on earth.
According to Paul’s own words to Timothy he says “For I am the least (and most undeserving) of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church (a people not a building) of God.” And that “I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor (of believer’s), and an insolent man; and that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief, meaning a prototype (chief originally from the Greek is “protos” and Paul being the first to follow made him a “prototype”).
Paul goes on to say 16 However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ would show all longsuffering, as a pattern (or progression) to all who would believe. Presumably us, and all who track him through his pilgrimage from being an enemy of God in whatever capacity they were, to being a Saint. Not in human terms of religious piety, but the righteousness of faith that squelches all accusation. Why? Because we rely on the things that God says about us. “For even the angels in Heaven behold the face of the Father in these little ones.” Meaning us.
Even as Jude said “Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, but could not bring an accusation against him, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.” Showing two things. First, he did have the authority we have of rebuking demons. And second, Michael could not entertain wrong doing in Moses.
Again from Zechariah:
3 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
2 And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand I plucked out of the fire?
3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments (his own feelings of himself), and stood before the angel.
4 And the Lord answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.” The Lord does this for us as well. But you see Paul early on working for Satan with his accusations and condemnations towards the early believers.
Paul was in transit from being a son of Satan, to being “a fellow citizen, saint and member of the household of God having been built upon the foundation of the Apostles and the prophets Jesus Christ the Chief cornerstone.” A kingdom that takes no earthly form to appease the human senses.
You see Paul use to defend the old religious order of a physical Jerusalem that was despised by Christ who said “not one stone shall be left upon another” showing His distain for the idolistic notion it had become. From this Paul was in transition.
So we follow Paul through his steps, and realize the gift of God in Christ of “being seated at the right hand of the Father, far above all principalities and powers.” In “The Kingdom of God at hand”, the Jerusalem of God the one on earth dimly resembled, If you are able to accept it.
It’s kind of strange that Paul would use the phrase, having been built upon the foundation of the Apostles, because he became one of the first 12 foundation stones as being an Apostle as he said here 10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
Paul was a foundation stone upon which we stand. In escence he stood upon his own works as well.
He was the 12th born in his own time, as one who has seen the Lord not in human form but in his original, always new form that never fades or ages. Like what we get. Like Paul said “we are newly created in Christ, old things have past away, all things become new and all things are from God”. Meaning not of creation. If indeed you have truly “put off the old man” which is not the flesh, but the deeds if the flesh carried about by it’s carnal persuasions. ( Colossians 3)
This is another concept from Paul’s mature Epistles. That the body is a body of beliefs. Like a political body. The physical body is neither good or bad but a vessel for either. “For we have this treasure in Earthen vessels that the Glory and the Excellency would be seen as God’s and not ourselves. If the body was bad, John would not have said that “as He is, so are we in the world”. And one of the reasons The Word became flesh and dwelled among us was to show us that we can be that too. To be “Christlike”.
Paul in an earlier Epistle said “I reach out to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of me” of being the resurrection that “the father’s strive for day and night” as being their earthen task and objective. Then later Paul instructs us in Romans to “recon ourselves dead to sin and raised in newness of life”. This is the purpose completion of the old Covenant . His task was obtained. And Christ’s purpose in Paul is that through his Epistles we can track his journey to arrive at the same place, and fulfill scripture that says “coming to Him as living stones, built up a spiritual house”. Of something that supercedes the structures of the Law and the prophets of being building blocks familiar to human senses.
This is what qualified Paul to be the twelfth apostle. The works that Christ worked in him when He said to Paul “for this reason I have appeared to you, for you to testify of the things you have seen, and the things I have yet to show you. God had completed that task and his sojournship by the time Paul had confessed his new citezineship.
With the concept of a progression in mind, it stands to reason that we would walk through his steps and go through his transformation to reach a destiny of s shared glory, if we use his more mature teachings to cancel his earlier ascertations.
Paul made some inaccurate accertations in his earlier Epistles, but they were mended along the way for us to follow, for “no other foundation can anyone lay but what is laid in Christ. And “if anyone builds upon these works, presumably us, they shall receive a reward.” Showing us that our eternal works have to do only with God’s building project of rescripted and re-spirited souls.
Peter testfies that “the earth and all the works associated with it will be burned “. So let us be sure to invest in God’s projects, and what platform is our foundation.
Joining Paul on the platform, we continue to build. “Come up hither”. This is the place of our building, out storage and what we own.
When Christ said “greater works shall you do because I go to the Father”, this is what He meant. Christ the Chief cornerstone had to be set in greater place, along with the foundation stones upon which we stand, we now build upon these works and fulfill Christ’s words that “greater works shall ye do”. Why? Because we have a place to do it. In spirit and truth with Christ “The Chief cornerstone” from whom all of the architectural angles are determined. Come join us here because we are “the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, with God the Judge of all, and the spirits of just men made perfect,
Christ spoke to the Samaritan lady at the well and said “the time that is coming is already here when you will not in Samaria, or Jerusalem worship the Father. For the Father is Spirit and truth and seeketh such”. This is God’s Kingdom and the place of our citezineship, the affections of our hearts and the other Jerusalem. The real one the one on earth mimicked in a finite way. But God’s things are infinite.
Store not up your treasures on earth where they corrode and are stolen, but store up your treasures in Heaven on that foundation, where they remain in their undeminishable eternal Glory. Where your heart is, so is your treasure.
It is not as though we are building something that didn,t previously exist though, because we cannot add to or take away of the things of God. Gods things are forever new. The building project that takes place is in the spirit of our minds. This is the place God replicates Himself. They just become new for us in that we hadn’t experienced them before.
The mind is a place for information, and the mind that has been expanded to house the Holy Spirit is far greater than the expanse above the earth because even an ounce of eternity far exceeds all of the created realm because “The earth with all its works shall be burned for the eternal to remain”. So if all we understood was an ounce, that is what you keep forever. Hopefully you recieve more.
This is our invitation too and why we can say “The Kingdom of God is at hand” just as much today as when Christ first said it. Reep your rewards today.
You see this invitation was never retracted. The blood of Christ through the eternal spirit was sufficient to deliver our Heavenly goods. Our full inheritance is in effect. We are in the New Covenant, there will not be a 3rd Covenant. And no the old wine is not better, and you cannot mingle the two.
Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13 “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became an adult, I put away childish things”. He used this as an analogy of his transfiguration. That we transition into adulthood and spiritual perfection through a series of exchanges. Carnal things for spiritual things, earthly things for heavenly.
The writer of Hebrews put it like this, “the Holy Spirit indicating this, that the way into the Holiest of All was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle was still standing. 9 It was symbolic for that present time”.
Symbolic, meaning a substitute, or a toy, demonstrating for us how eternal things work. When the substitute has taught it’s purpose, it’s mission is complete. It has been expired in the heavenlies. In this way the substitute was like a teaching with a toy, a playlike representative, but not the original that it mimicks.
Hebrews later states to “let us therefore go boldly to the throne room of Grace” of something human eyes have not witnessed. Showing that we have access to what that toy represented as touching the invisble. This is what God is.
Children play with toys, which are small copies of things adults do. Generally boys play cops and robbers and girls play house. The same is true of the faith.
The people of the old Covenant culture of the law were called “children” over two thousand times in the Bible. Even at the end of the 40 year wilderness wandering they were still called children when some of them were 80+ years old. Why? Because they could not “put away childish things” as having to do with the culture of the Law and Prophets, something that Christ fulfilled and shelved to save only for historical referencing for those of us in the New Covenant.
All the relics have no forward speaking relevance to the New Testament believers. As Hebrews 1 states “God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 in these last days speaks to us by His Son”. Case closed.
Everything the law had is in God’s son, even as it says in Hebrews of the law. “I have come to do your will oh God. He takes away the first to establish the second”. The exchange is complete.
Peter explained the difference like this “Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you” showing to us that they knew they were going to be seperceded.
The whole 40 years of wandering would not have been so long if they learned the exchange rate of things on earth for things in Heavenly. We put away childish things, and have been given keys to the kingdom. The violent take it by force? We enter in valiantly. For us the kingdom of God has an open door.
Jesus said of the Jews in His day “But to what shall I liken this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their companions”. Or to the Pharisees He said “you are not entering The Kingdom, nor are you allowing those who are trying to do so”. Ironically they thought they were in the kingdom, being the Jerusalem on earth, but didn’t realize that was just a silly play thing as well, and they were actor’s in the play. God’s things are not made with men’s hands. These are the toys.
Even as the Lord chuckled with David wanting to build a house for Him. The Lord told David, you want to build a house for Me? See all these things I have made with My hands. And, from all those that went before you, did I (The Lord) ever ask anyone to build a house for Me? The firmament in the heavens cannot contain Me for all these declare My handiwork, that I accomplished in a moment.
The Israelites travels teach us that our spiritual pilgrimage is a journey too, an invisible one. Which is why we are called sojourners in the faith, showing us that there is a progression and an end. As Paul acknowledged to Timothy ”
7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness.”
This is why the first New Covenant believers were called the people of “The Way”. Like those from Abraham, they looked for the city whose builder and designer was God. He knew that no city on Earth qualified as a place for God to rest. God rested on the 7th day from His creating, to the place He was before He ever created as that of “The Kingdom before the foundations of the world”. This place is not created but the original all creation is patterned from, showing us what our toys are that we need to trade in. There is a one to one exchange rate for the toys.
Paul talks more about this exchange in Galatians saying “Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, 2 but is under guardians and tutors until the time appointed by the father. 3 Even so we, when we were children, we were in bondage under the elements of the world”. Speaking of the Old Covenant culture from Moses, in to the promised land (meaning the place of promises) through Zion and up to Jerusalem in the time of David. Paul then chided the Galatians saying “how is it you turn back to the week and beggarly things on the earth? Thereby discrediting them.
When David and his men went to take Jerusalem (2 Samuel 5) he was repelled by the lame and blind (symbolically those who see the invisble as future). But David said “Whoever climbs up, by way of the water shaft (being the gospel) and defeats the Jebusites (naysayers) the lame and the blind, who are hated by David’s soul, he shall be chief and captain.” Therefore they say, “The blind and the lame (faithless) shall not come into the house.” This is a parable of those who think that Heavenly Jerusalem needs to take on a form common to the carnal senses but there is a reason Paul called Heavenly Jerusalem his mother. She already exists in Her true form if he was born there.
As it was in David and in the time of Christ, it is again in our day. Believers are looking for something carnally tangible to fulfill scripture. Some are trying to set the corner Stone and start up the sacrifices, showing that they are like the lame and blind that David dispised. They are looking for another Jesus, when Paul specifically said “if anyone comes preaching of another Christ, let them be accursed”.
As Paul said of the damned in his day “22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man”. And furthermore anticipate God to appear as a man in a silly man-made city on Earth so that they can shake His hand, showing they are lame and blind, which are not only hated by David, but God Himself. These refuse to progress in the faith and allege themselves with the Pharases of a bygone age.
The progression that was given in the Old Covenant and Paul and even Jacobs ladder is for us to be god-like, not the other way around. There is no glory in the Son of God becoming man again.
The things the Israelites handled of the preisthood of putting up and taking down the tabernacle, the holies and the Holy of Holies. The installation of the Ark, the placement of the show bread and the barriers between the Most Holy, the Holies for those in service, the tabernacle for the congregation that protected them from without. All it’s sacrifices and services were only toys and replicas of invisble eternal things with God in the Spirit as Moses was instructed on Sinai “make all things just like the things you saw on the Mount” showing that there was an original, mature, fully functional, eternal reality they were mimicking on earth of things that symbolized real ones.
The things they had were toys and copies of the originals. That as they played out these parts on Sabbath and Feast days of things laid out in a liniar fashion on a timeframe for our understanding and growth in a progression, to realize the eternal realities in the Heavens to which we are called to “Today” of things that are all simultaneously true at the same time. These things don’t have to be assembled, put up or waited for a specific time to be true because they already are eternally assembled and opporational, fully functionable and implimentable to the mature in the faith.
This is why Paul said “when I became an adult, I put away childish ( old Covenant) things. And “when that which is perfect has come, that which is in part is done away with”. And “cast off the bond woman, being the Jerusalem on earth as the replica of the Heavenly but only in contrasts.
It is with Jerusalem on Earth that is dealt with specifics. Meaning at a specific place, Jerusalem for a specific time, the feast, for a specific people called the Israelites, with a specific language. However, in the New Covenant the only specific is, in Christ. The specific place is wherever two or more are gathered in his name. Into what kind of people? The gentiles. For even the Jews have no preference over another culture even as Paul had said where there is no longer Bond nor slave nor male nor female nor Jew nor Greek for God is all in all. If this is the fulfillment that God spoke and Abraham saying in you shall all Nations be blessed. the specifics have been respess ified and traded in four Heavenly things.
That which is perfect, is perfect in understanding. Even as job said, those who are perfect are with you. Speaking of God as being “The City whose Builder and Maker is God”. Whose location, design and composition are Spirit and truth, the original all others are patterned after. These all have their fulfillment in Christ with Paul’s words saying, all things have passed away all things are made new in Christ.and all things are of God who has reconciled us to himself in this way.
Humans external features experience compositions familiar to their senses, but the Elect have another set of senses as touching the invisble. Paul’s prayer was for the eyes of our understanding to be enlightened as being our new features. that we would know the hope of our calling and what his great power is towards us that he displayed in Christ when he raised him from the dead. The same power resident in us as we understand it inappropriate it elevates us to the very right hand of the father.
Paul went into his discourse of the sons verses slaves. That a slave and a child have the same instructors, being the law and the prophets, but the slaves being harnessed to their outer senses, being in bondage to the elements of the world, never transitioned from them. As Paul said “you have returned to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? 10 You observe days and months and seasons and years. 11 I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain.”
So let us be more diligent to learn from their mistakes and heed the warnings lest we be judged like they were “till not one stone shall be left upon another.
Therefore we must give [a]the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away. 2 For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just reward, 3 how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord.
This Salvation however long the journey may be, the objective remains the same. Our crossover/Passover/baptism to the New life “in Christ”.
Believers in Christ start their journey with the word of faith. That if you believe in your heart, and confess with your mouth you shall be saved as it says in Romans 10. This was actually quoted by Paul from Deuteronomy so this concept wasn’t new in Paul’s time, it was just reiterated. This is the Eternal Gospel.
In Deuteronomy 29 the Lord had re-introduced the Israelites to the Covenant that preceded and supercedes the covenant of the Law and the Prophets with these words. 29.1 These are the words of the covenant, which I the Lord commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, BESIDE the covenant which he made with them in Horeb. Meaning, other than the law and the prophets of the covenant written on two tablets that Paul later refers to as “The Gospel of Death”. You see the law was a stopgap, not the objective of the faith and believe in God.
In Paul’s words “the law was added to make sin exceedingly sinful”. To make them turn the other way. That is what repent means, turn the other way. Do an about face. God has something much better that they shied away from saying “Yet the Lord hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.” And God said this because they refused to follow Him by faith, of believing the things He has said. They feared the Giants. Our Giants are the “but what if’s” we ask of God, and the “just in case” and the “cares of this life” that keep us from trusting the things God has said like “I will never leave you forsaken”.
It was at the end of Israel’s 40 years sentence in the desert, led by Moses that the gospel message was presented to them one more time. You see they had rejected it. The Lord told them they would spend one year in the wilderness for every day they rejected to go into the promise land. 40 years for 40 days of disobedience. Ouch! That is 365 days of punishment for one day of rejecting His Spirit. A total of about 14,600 days.
It was Moses who led the Israelites the 40 years of punishment through the wilderness, who coming to the end of his life and the end of his tenure as leading the Israelites through folly. He asked the Lord if he could then go into the promise Land, their original destination they were denied. The Lord told him, No! You cannot go into the promise land, for at the fountain at Meribah you refused to hallow me to the tribes of Israel.
You see at Meribah Moses was instructed to do a Word of Faith by speaking to the Rock to get water. This he did not do. Instead of a work of Faith by speaking a command, he smote the rock with a stick. He turned a work of faith into a physical work done by man. He preferred his physical instruments rather than the tools of our trade which is word. God’s word.
This is the reason why all the children of Israel did not complete their cross over except Joshua, Caleb and the new generation born after the rebellion. At the end of the 40 years many were over 80 years old and still children in faith. They just could not grow up. They failed to repudiate their past behavior and remained unchanged by their encounter with God and the events leading up to the Red Sea crossing. They continued to live their life the way they did before by the Adamic curse by working by the sweat of their brow.
Their journey started out of Egypt through the Red Sea where they were delivered from slave labor and all of their monsters and boogie men were drowned in the water. But they just could not accept that fact, retaining their lower nature of fear they invented new monsters and complained about everything. As Moses said “They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to newgods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.”
For this they were denied. They could not rise above their carnal nature and use their inheritance of Faith, the unseen substance of God’s provisions called “the Word of Faith”.
This is the reason why today many people live in defeat. Without knowing how to impliment faith by trusting God and applying His word, they use the world’s bandaids and solutions instead and say “in Jesus name”. This is a sort of blasphemy. It not His fault your remedies don’t work. He did not sanction it or they would’ve. If your prayers and efforts don’t work, you have to recalibrate your beliefs because the Lord says “I do not change”. He is a constant and we are being change, providing we hear the Holy Spirit. (2Corinthians 3.18)
James says “you have not because you ask not, and when you do ask, you do so to fulfill your flesh”. Meaning you use your heavenly powers to feed your lower nature. That is not what God’s provisions are for. And then you murmur and complain because you didn’t get the thing you asked for. Who does that sound like? The Israelites and the Jews of the bygone age.
The Elect have been given the ability to create by faith. James goes on to say “you ask and you don’t receive because you seek to consume it by your carnal nature”. Showing what the obstacle is.
If you approach God as a beggar or a borrower would, you insult the Gift and the Gift Giver. We were made in the image of God. If you see yourself at the base a the cross on your knees, you are like wingless birds floundering for flight. You are appearing to God in your old nature and He does not see that. You have to go in the name of Christ. For even the Israelites were instructed at their Passover to eat it with haste, to get up and get out of there. So too we need to be renewed and re-established in Christ and not appear in our Adamic sunken condition. Are we not joint heirs with Christ? He did not leave us there stranded, for “on him was laid the iniquity of us all and by his stripes we were healed”.
Do not be found in contempt of the gift nor insult the spirit of Grace. Your salvation package is completed all the way to Glory. The Lord says, today is the day of salvation and today is the day I have helped.
We have been given “love, power and a sound mind. And “we have the mind of Christ” “to boldly go to the throne room of Grace”. This is what it means to be seated with him in Heavenly places, which is the destiny of our calling.
This is how you address the Father. This is what it means to pray “in Christ’s name”. Just like Jacob went to his father in Esau’s name. He felt like Esau and he smelled like Esau. He went in the name of Esau and acquired the full inheritance. Same with us. We are a sweet fragrance of Christ in the presence of the Father and are denied nothing. As Christ said “ask anything of the Father in My name and He will do it”. Amen
You talk to the Father as if you were Christ. Your old person is not recognized here. Your accounts were closed. “For even the angels in heaven see the face of the Father in these little ones” who act like this. This is how we know we are His because He said “ask anything in My name that the Father may be Glorified” through us by doing so.
If the Israelites would have used these tools of faith in the Son of God to impliment their eternal inheritance, they wouldn’t have had so many problems.
Like the children in the wilderness, today there are many who are bound by fears like “the end times” as a reason to be inactive and don’t know that the command was given not to harm the earth till God writes His name on our foreheads. We are on a mission, a journey. This is why we are called pilgrims.
If Moses would have spoken to the Rock an invisible word to bring forth the provisions of God, the 40 years of wandering would not have happened. But they failed to use their crossover tools of Gods word applied by the believer by faith. As Joshua and Caleb said “if God gave us something, we are more than able to possess it. As 2 Peter says, God has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness, and we are partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. What are we waiting for to impliment the gift of eternal life?
As Christ shows us in His wilderness trial where Satan tempted Him, each temptation was met with these words saying, no for it is written. Then He proceeded to quote scripture, showing us how to conquer our own wilderness testings. With scripture. That we may be found faithful to stand behind the sheild of this kind of faith and ward off all the fiery darts as Paul teaches in Ephesians 6
This is how faith works, but it is only faith when the facts and the physical findings are contrary to the unctions of the Holy Spirit. This is why “the carnal mind is enmity against God. It is not subject to the laws (ways and construct) of God and neither can be. So those who are in the flesh, cannot please God”.
Like David said in the Psalms, and Paul quoted later in Corinthians, “We Believe therefore we speak”. It is believing a thing of Gods that is in scripture and speaking it, that the thing that is believed becomes the thing that is said. This is our new reality in spirit and truth. Kind of like when God said “let there be light” and there was light. Or when Christ said to Lazarus “rise up and walk” so we too speak the word of faith as directed by the Holy Spirit.
Gods promises are implemented in this age in this way. As Paul said “all the promises of God are yes and Amen in Christ”. To be implimented in any age,
The writer of Hebrews said of Moses generation. 16 For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses? 17 Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not believe? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.” Are we missing out from what God has for us for the same reason?
After the 40 years in the wilderness, Moses was able to see the land of promise from Mt Nebo, but died there, having not receiving the promises because he did not understand that what he was shown portayed something invisible. This is what they all overlooked.
We see with Joshua, for whom it was promised that he would lead them into the land. It was at Jericho that the walls fell not with a stick, or of any of man’s devising, but with the resounding shouts of faith. And because of this, with Joshua they were all able to cross over, defeat their enemies and advance to their inheritance. (Figuratively speaking) all participated. So must you to be counted as faithful.
The promise land symbolized receiving our inheritance in Christ, the true prize as described by Paul who said “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 for us that the things they had were only physical toys that shadowed the things that are invisible, of things “in Christ”. That is why they were referred to as “children” a couple thousand times in the old covenant. Even after they wandered 40 years, they had not developed in faith so they could not conclude their journey and obtain the prize. Even so today many do not aquire the gift given but remain in their lower carnal estate. As James said, let Faith have its perfect work that you may be full and complete and lacking nothing, showing that our trials have an end. And even with Peter who said “after you have suffered a while, may God perfect establish strengthen and settle you” and so God does. That’s what the gospel is all about. And from Peter again, “recieving the end of your faith the salvation of your soul” showing our efforts of faith have it’s conclusion before our physical death. We fulfill the words of Christ saying “those who believe in Me have past from death to life”. Our Passover/crossover and vows from our baptism are complete. To recon our old man dead and walk in the resurrection. Amen.
The physical expression of faith of the New Covenant established by Christ and our crossover point today is baptism, whereby you profess that your old person died with Christ at the cross, being washed away, you now walk in newness of life. Your new form of life should be your proof. The cross of Christ is our crossover point from here to there, to where He is. This is symbolized by Him taking our crown of thorns indicative of the curse from Eden to exchange our crown for His. The price was paid. You must press in to lay hold of this with persistence and the impliments of faith, being the Holy Spirit and Gods Son called “The Word of God” broken down into soundbites called words being the gospel, which is the re-itteration of the things God has said, for our implimentation. Has God really said ? With an astounding shout we say YES! And like Jericho, the walls fall down between here and there and we cross over into Christ, where “in Christ all the promises of God are yes and amen in Him” leaving our old nature in the dust where it came from. Amen.
To obtain these things we say You must continue in a walk of faith being pilgrims and sojourners following Christ by doing what He does and going where He goes. He said, “follow me that where I am you may be also”. And so we do. We go to places feet can’t go. Because in the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word was God. To follow Christ, Gods Word, you must put on Christ one word at a time and one attribute at a time to be rewarded by the Father of Glory. You must be renewed in the spirit of your mind to become word. God’s Word is His Son, Him put put on in the loins of our mind. And those that do this? These are the elect. They arrive at a full stature in the family of God. Ephesians 4.13
We do this by the transfiguration by the Holy Spirit, one Revelation at a time until our realization is fully awakened to the things of God. These things are given to us, to be with Him where He is, one with the Father, seated at His own right hand, having dominion over all powers and principalities, in this age and every age, seated in the heavens in glory, the origination and destiny of our calling. In Christ, fully reconciled to the Father.
We do this one step at a time, adopting each of the several attributes by owning them to be with Them. This is the true reconciliation given to us. Even as Paul said “be reconciled to the Father! He made Him who knew no sin, to become our sin, for us to become the righteous of God like Him. Owning and possesing everything the Son has with us being joint heirs now of the things that God has.
This is why we put on Christ. In the loins of the mind we become godly by cloaking ourselves with these invisible attributes defined by Word, to be like Him. In doing so we make our calling and election sure and receive an open door to His Kingdom even as we speak. 2 Peter 1.10-11
God is invisible spirit and truth, and seeks such. Such are we. Him is what we get. In this way the scripture is fulfilled in us that says “when we see Him, we become like Him”. And so we do. We see Him who is eternal, immortal, invisible. Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hebrews 13.8 His flesh was temporary. In the beginning He was Gods invisible Word. That is what He is still today.
Now the word is true that says “the world does not know us because they did not know Him.” And they did not know Him because they could not see Him who is invisible, as He is. They thought he was human. Because seeing with their eyes they see not. And hearing with their ears they hear not. It is with the heart that one must see and hear to understand the things of God. This they did not. But we do.
Our invisible part called our soul and heart is the only invisible thing that we have to interact with the living God. We impliment this with our invisible word of faith to reverberate the words that we heard showing we received the things the He said. He says many things, but just gives us one thing. Himself. He is described through the many words. These words reassembled become Word. This is our work today. To reassemble His truths inside ourselves to be like Him. One word and one Revelation at a time until our journey is complete. And we can accomplish this before our carnal nature dies.
This kind of faith is our invisible embelical cord to the invisible God for the transferance of the things He has said, from Him to us, to whom we aspire. His inspiration is our perspiration, a sweet savory scent to the Father is the Son. Paul put it like this “14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us [d]diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life.
Because of this “we are the temple of the living God”. And as Paul pleaded to be reconciled to the Father, this we have done. This is how you know that you are the elect. You have been rescripted by scripture, reprogrammed and wired, reformatted and fitted to interact with the living God through Word, unhindered by your carnal nature. This is the full reconciliation and full salvation as our objective as prayed here by Paul in Colossians 1.28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. 29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily”. And so we do.
Let us go up from here. Let us, the called, the eklesia, understand more clearly our profession of baptism. That we may more clearly understand what we’ve crossed over to possess. So that we may understand more clearly what we are able to do. And as Paul had prayed, to know the power that is resident in each one of us. This great power that was displayed in Christ when He was raised from the dead, and seated at the Father’s own right hand, far above all powers and principalities in this age and every age. Ephesians 1.17+ This power given to us to accomplish the same thing as the first born. This power vested in us through faith to obtain the glory that “as He is, so are we in this world”. Not as He was when He put on flesh and dwelled among us, but as He is even now. Isn’t this what Christ asked of the Father? Father that those whom you have given Me to be with Me where I am. I with You, You with Me, them with us that the world may know. (John 17) Did the Father deny that request? And “Father, that those you have given Me, I have given them My glory. That they may be one with us.” The Father honored that request as well.
This is the good news. This is the gospel of the Christ of the cross and only savior. There is no future saving to supercede this.
We are just the reitterations of the Father. Those who follow the Lamb. Us to whom He said “greater works shall you do because I go to the Father and you see me again no more”. He is now seen as He is. He is the Word we become. As 1 John 3 says “when we see Him, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And so we did and now fulfill the verse that says “the world does not know us because they do not know Him”. We are the elect.
The Kingdom of God is at hand, fully functionable and operational today. Glory to God.
12 Here is the [g]patience of the saints; here[h]are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying [i]to me, “Write:‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’ ”
“Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.”
Christ said “I have many things to say to you however you are not able to bear them, however when the spirit of truth comes, you will be taught all things”. This is from the “all things” from the spirit of Truth.
It was Paul who said, for the gospel that I preached to you I did not receive it by man, nor was I taught by man but through revelation of Jesus Christ, showing for us that it does not from without but within.
Christ also said, greater works shall you do because I go to the father and you see me again no more. These are the greater works we do because we have accepted the reality that Christ will not come back in His former fashion of the flesh that he expired with the law and the prophets, as many suppose, so we have His advantage.
Christ comes as a thief because if you don’t accept Him as He is. The gift giver becomes a taker as He said “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. So it is important to know what we are to put on “lest we be found naked. Shame on us if we do not put on our Heavenly attire.
Here are some things you need to know to ensure your election, “for in so doing there is provided a grand entrance into the “Kingdom of God at Hand”.
The things of this age were created and mankind were begotten of things that hadn’t been before. They come from the dust and return to the dust. In the end everything from the 6 days of creation will all be burned in a fervant heat for the eternal to remain. (2 Peter 3.12) Then righteousness will be without competition. But we don’t need to wait for that event to happen to participate in the things that God has for us in “The Kingdom of God at hand”. A phrase that never expires.
Gods things are not created so they do not decay or return to the dust and they cannot be burned because they are elementally different. They are spirit and truth. They never get old and are forever new. God is pre-existent and eternal, and so are the things that are specific to Him. To this the Elect are called to participate in even now as being “The Kingdom of God at hand”, and “The Kingdom prepared from the foundations of the world”.
Gods things are not subject to space and time but are ubiquitous. Meaning God and His things are not time sensitive events to be experienced in the past or the future but even right now. They are all harmonious, coexistent and inseparable. Wherever God is, everything that is uniquely His is with Him. And because God is boundless and ubiquitous, being everywhere all the time, so are His things. This is why “The Kingdom of God is at hand” to the renewed mind of faith. This is why we “the called” are to grow in the knowledge of God, because that is our only access point to Him. He is our expanse greater than the created Heavens with the Stars. In Him is everything that is eternal.
His things are made manifest and evident to us, clearly seen not in 1st and 2nd comings as many suppose, but through a succession of comings, revelations, manifestations and unveilings to the human heart, soul and mind, to the degree you are able to attain.
The Etemology of Revelation.
The word revelation originates from the Greek word “apocalypse”. This word does not mean catastrophes as thought of today. To witness the lifting off of a covering from a statue in a public square is an unveiling. This is an apocalypse, a revelation and a manifestation. With God it is to make visible something out of reach of the physical senses.
This is what God’s Word does. It makes visible things that are out of reach of the carnal senses.
The purpose for God’s word is to make visible the invisible, to make knowable the humanly un-see-able, to make attainable the humanly impossible, for us, the Elect to acquire in this age our inheritance of the things hidden “in Christ” the source and our final destination for the complete apprehension and attainment of the gift of Godliness delivered to us through the gospel of things pertaining to “The Kingdom of God at hand. To fulfill the verse in ourselves about God that “His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by through these you are partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” in the here and now, no supposed 2nd coming involved. Or as Peter put it “recieving the end of your faith”. (1 Peter 1.9)
However this promise is not for the carnal man or his external senses or religious nature. This is why Christ spoke in parables “for without a parable spoke He not to the people” or the religious zellots of that day or ours.
That is why faith is the evidence of things hoped for, the (proof of the invisible) substance of the things that are unseen”. All the law and the prophets were just for this cause. To help us see the un-see-able. As Moses was instructed “see that you make all things according to the pattern shown to you on the mount” showing us there is an eternal, original these things were pattered after. But this key principle they forgot and became confused enough to get lost in the wilderness. They too were just to help us see what is just beyond the vail of human perceptions. This is why the flesh is called the vail. It is the carnal senses that are useless pertaining to the things of God. That is why you must put them off when relating to God.
If you are waiting to experience God in a physical way with a zip code and a time zone, you are blind to Him who wisks about you even now able to save. This is why He is “The Savior”.
This is why our Lord says “20 Behold,I stand at the door and knock.If anyone hears My voice and opens the door,I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me”. Enter spirit and truth.
This is why Christ said of the Jews “seeing with their eyes they see not, hearing with their ears they hear not. It is with the heart that one must see and hear to understand the things of God”. They are still trying to build something to house God today. God cannot be carnally known. This is why Romans 8 says the carnal mind is enmity against God. It is not subject to the laws of God and neither can be. So those in the flesh cannot please God.
That was the sin of Sodom and Gomorah. They said “bring them out that we may know them” visibly. Meaning, show us God on the physical plain and we will believe. This is why Lot and his family were instructed to leave that plain for the high lands, which is a picture of rising in the spirit. Which is the same reason our Lord on earth said “let is go up from here” and “let us arise”. Learn to stand on these truths, the plateau of the spirit.
Set aside the carnal expectation of God becoming a human again. He finished that work and said “I go to the Father and you see me again no more” at least in a carnal way. He returned to His original composition of the Word before time of Spirit and truth.
Flesh and bone does not inherit the things of God, because God is spirit and truth and seeketh such. Such are we. It is those of us who have adopt the words of God who can commingle the things of God presented to us from the gospel, engrafted in our minds for promtings by the Holy Spirit, to think and interact with God, to experience the Blessings God enjoys that are uniquely specific to Him and His. Such are we, we are the Elect.
Paul said “the vail is done away in Christ”? We who are recipients of the New Covenant provisions see what is beyond the vail of human experiences being “The Kingdom of God at Hand”. Within reach of something tangible but not physically graspable, but totally comprehendable and achievable to the re-spirited mind of faith.
God uses words to uncloak Himself by His collection of words He calls His Son. This is the manna from heaven that gives life to the world. But don’t expect to pick it up from the ground like the Israelites. That too was just a snapshot and a parable of something we are to do by faith.
John 1.1. “In the beginning was The Word, The Word was with God, and The Word was God. He was in the beginning with God”. Word is His pre-incarnate original substance.
Word is not to be interpreted physically but God specific, being pre-incarnate and eternal of things before creation. He is the collection of God’s things, broken down into sound bites called words, for human consumption not to feed the body but the spirit of the mind. To become the things that He said, made known by revelations for us to be like Him being remanufactured with His things, His thoughts and His words. In the beginning that is all He was, and the Son declares this. We accept Him as He is and we are accepted. We are the elect.
This is why we are instructed to “put on Christ”. Because Christ was word before “He became flesh and dwelled among us”, that is what He returned to when He left. Because flesh is not a Heavenly composition, people saw only a peasant on a donkey when they saw Christ because the flesh vailed His Glory. However there were those who saw past the vail and worshipped Him on a sorel horse whose garments were dipped in blood, having a name no human can pronounce, whose name is “The Word of God”. We the Elect are still pronouncing His name even today. We proclaim nothing new but are re-iterations of the things that He said of the “gospel once and for all delivered to the saints”.
We put on His Word to become like Him. This is how we follow Him to the Father. This is how “His word does not return void, but accomplished all His desire”. Word brings us to God with it. We return with Christ. “With my dead body they shall arise” and so we did and you can too. (Isaiah 26.19) This too is a work of faith.
It was because Christ was a man and God, He shows us that it is possible to be full of God while we have our human bodies because “as He is so are we in this world” not how he was in the flesh but His current “as He is” seated eternal with the Father. We have this now.
As Paul said, we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the Glory and the Excellency may be of God and not ourselves. Do you hear that? Gods Glory and His excellence exuding through us? What a blessedness disguised in common looking people. For some, this may be the only glimpse of this kind of glory you will see this side of judgment.
Because”For in Him (Christ) dwells the fullness of the God head body. And you are complete in Him who is the head of all principalities and powers”. If we have accepted the invitation to arise and seat with them in the heavenlies as spelled out by Paul in Ephesians 2. Above all powers and principalities in this age and every age”. This gift has already been given for the heaters who have faith to aquire. To cloth yourself with Christ. To put on the inner man who is made in the likeness of Christ of what we see in His Word.
In this way we are what we eat. To receive God as He is, being Word, is to commune with God. To eat of His flesh which are words on the pages consumed by our mind to be like Him. As Christ said “take and eat all of it”. And as the Israelites were instructed at their Passover to, eat it in haste. Or as Lot’s wife was turned to a pillar of salt because she didn’t leave the plains in haste. She lingered and became solidified, and solid God is not.
To have all things in common.
This is what commune means. This is true koinania obtained from the gospel through assorted revelations. This is what His word is about. Just as 1 John says, That which was from the beginning, that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may commune with us, have oneness with us, to break bread with us; and truly our oneness is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. To be infused with and amalgamated to. To become inseparable and eternally one with Him who is everywhere. To take our stance with the rest of the elect, of the symposium of the spirits of just men made perfect. (Hebrews 12.22-23)
This is what it means to partake of Christ. To eat what He eats, and drink what He drinks of eternal things of the Father. This is to “drink it new in the Kingdom”speaking of the new wine of the “New Covenant” now in effect as evidenced at the cross, as we partake not of a body of flesh but of words, syllables and sayings. We become part of the body of Christ which has no physical members but being made up by stones that are “the measure of a man who is of an Angel”. (Revelation 21)
As Peter says “we are living stones built up a habitation of God in the spirit”, and need not to expect to have something physical. And we need not wait for a third Covenant or a new work because the second Covenant and the cross cannot be superseded, outdone, added to or retracted. It really is finished.
This is why we are called ambassadors. An ambassador is a representative of a kingdom or a culture. Someone cannot be called an ambassador if they had not been there otherwise they would just be a representative. But because we are “fellow citizens, saints and members of the household of God” we are ambassadors from the place we are from being “The kingdom of God at hand”, we have been given permission to say with Christ and the apostles, that “we speak what we see and we testify to what we hear”, showing that there’s a testimony of a reality that is not sensitive to the carnal senses. And to those who are getting this? We beckon you, come up hither. The rapture is not a physical one because “from dust you came, to dust you shall return. That is the demise of the body. We are talking of an event that happens “in the blink of an eye” quicker than humanly perceivable but completely assertainable.
For you have not come to a mountain that may be burned with fire, but you have come to Mount Zion, to the Heavenly City (and the true Jerusalem) to the general assembly and Church of the firstborn in the spirits of just men made perfect.” Take your seat here please. The price was paid with the most prescious blood. Do not despise the gift or insult the Giver.
Change your perspective.
A father is most pleased when his children do what he does. God made no beggars borrowers or thieves, God left us not on our knees but said follow me that where I am you may be also. Stand up and arise to your inheritance for the price was paid. “Walk in the spirit and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh”.
The father rejoices when those meet Him at the throne and join Him there because He is seated there waiting for His enemies to become his footstool, and because He has already defeated Satan sin and death at the cross, the only enemy that is left now are your doubts, fears and unbelief. God wants you to defeat these enemies with scripture and sit with the Father in the Heavenlies seeing eye to eye with Him. This is His desire. “It is the Father’s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom”. He has withheld nothing. “God has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness according to the knowledge of Him who calls us to glory by virtue”. By virtue that you know these truths.
When the enemy says “has God really said?” We say with a resounding affirmative YES! And just like the walls fall down at Jericho, we enter into “The Kingdom of God at hand”. No other act but faith can accomplish this. Get up off your knees and stand up like a man. Just as Paul said, I reach out to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of me. Some of us have done that.
These are the elect. The Father sees a reflection of Himself in us and He is smiling. In this the father was well pleased and says, enter My joy you good and full of faith steward, servant and beloved.
If God appears physically of things specific to the six day creation, God presents a false self. The creator cannot become the created. This is why He calls us to Himself. We are the ones that must change and His Word is the change agent. We do this one Revelation at a time, one manifestation after another untill we become “a perfect man” (Eph 4.13) Not masculine or feminine. These distinctions have no preference one over the other in God’s Kingdom. We are all one, equal and co-heirs of the things of God that are not of this creation.
Now “the whole creation groans and travails anticipating the manifestation of the children of God”. Why? Because that is the purpose of creation. Them. Us. This manifestation of individual manifestos of the Father is us because “as He is, so are we in the world”. There is no doubt about it, We are the Elect.
And because we take on the manifestations of God found in His Word and call them our own, we are joint heirs of the things “in Christ”. Our flesh cannot be re-created, we can only be converted to be His manifestations.
It is these revelations about God that make manifest the things of God to our understanding so we can accept or reject God. And that is why the revelation of the Son of God, the Christ, is not of this creation. He said “you have rightly called me a King, but My Kingdom is not of this creation. If it were I would send my angels and they would fight, but My Kingdom is not from here”.
Even as Paul said “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but they are mighty through God for pulling down strongholds and every argument that exalts itself against the understanding of God” showing for us that God is elementally different. Even as he says, “as the Heavens are higher than the Earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts are higher than your thoughts. His composition is out of reach for the external carnal senses to experience and the need for revelation.
That is why God is a manifestation and revelations made known by His Word and not composed of His six day creation. This is how and where God is unveiled, in the spirit of the mind and understanding. Which means to make known and open up to the regenerated mind of Faith the things that are God specific. And because God is “eternal, immortal and invisible, we should not expect Him to manufacture something of Himself with creation specific elements associated with time and matter, or he would lie by presenting a false image of himself of being something created, and God is not a creature, and a thing of creation cannot be God .
There are however countless other lower case gods that are doing that even to this day by taking on the responsibilities of God and associated with things of this age disguised in benevolence for redirecting human affections to themselves . These are the counterfeits. You will know them by their fruits. They are the pyramid people.
We are the elect, however they are the elect of another sort with all lying signs and wonders if possible to deceive, but not decieve the Elect.
So we must be more careful to distinguish between the created and the eternal so that we may more appropriately arise to our inheritance. Where? In our understanding in the spirit of our minds. In this way Gods things become our plug-n-play components that build us up, and the tools of our trade for acts of faith as more than touching the invisible but cohabitating with God now. We are owners, joint heirs of the things that God has said, that are in Christ and with the Father. That is where He is awaiting our arrival. Not physically but in spirit and truth. “For the time that is coming already is (John 4)
It is Gods things that are revealed to the elect, that are unveiled and manifest for our consumption that we may become more godly. This is how we are children of God and joint heirs of the things of God in Christ, our new abode. This is what defines a true Christian. Not a religion but an association with a new species in a New Kingdom with a New Covenant and New features being God Specific, that never fades, erodes, decays or changes, of things that are “in Christ”. We who are “in Christ” are in the forever new, the origination of His manifestations and revelations of the things He has said. He is the source
We are not created, we are manifestations and apocalypses of the things for us that are called the new creation, which are not new in the sense that they have never been. They are new in the sense in two terms. One is that those things which are eternal are eternally new and never getting old. They always shine in their eternal glory. It is with our mind that these are new because the mind had not experienced them before. Revelation and revealings are just showing us things that are hidden in Christ. And because in the beginning God created the heavens and earth and rested from them, he stepped back from them proverbially he stepped into himself and that is what Christ is. Hidden in Christ is the Godhead body and we are hidden in Christ as well.
We now are these manifestations, chips off the old block. We become his declarations because we cannot help but to speak what we see and testify to what we’ve head and seen of the things that are here in Christ.
He said “so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return to me void”. This is us who put on word. That is our departure and transportation mechanism to the Father. As scripture says, “we have been delivered from the power of darkness and have been translated into the Kingdom of the Son of His love”. Now the things of this world grow faintly dim in the light of His Glory and Grace. It is as we behold His Glory, we are transitioned by His Glory to become that Glory. (2 Corinthians 3.18) For this reason He is also called “The Father of Glories” and in this way we are His because He shared that with us.
When Paul was visited by Christ with” a light 7 times greater than the sun”, can you see that? It is an unearthly Glory beyond the veil of human perception. Are you becoming that Glory? The Father of Glories gives us this.
At the end of the book of the revelation of Jesus Christ which was written by John, of whom John was the closest disciple of Christ, having found his head in the bosom of our Lord, having known him better than any of the disciples.
John saw an angel and bent down to worship him thinking that this was Christ. Upon doing so this angel said to him “see that you do not do that for I am one of thy brethren and one of those who keep the testimony of Jesus Christ worship Him, for the testimony of Christ is the spirit of prophecy.”
It is this one who John saw and John knew best, who saw something that eerily resembled Jesus Christ to the point that he thought it was Him and bowed to worship. And it is those who reach this stature who can say like “The Son” “he who has seen me has seen the Father” as being something invisible but totally attainable.
May we present to you this day that he was a manifest Elect of God. Showing for us that, our new body is not a gift given at some conclusion at the end of time but for those of us who obtain their fullness and likeness of Christ even now “each one in their own order” (1 Corinthians 15)
Step outside of your time and place association with matter while you are in your earthen vessels and fullfil the verse that says “as He is (now) so are we in the world.
Accept the gift, the price was paid. Take your rightful due not at the cross for sin and suffering but seated with the Father. Leave your crown of thorns and dead works and out on the crown of Glory given, “recieving the end of your faith, the salvation of your souls” and the complete your vows from baptism. To be buried with Him, and raised (resurrected) in newness of life now.
“17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.” Arise to your inheritance now for the time is short, and “today is the day of salvation” tomorrow you may not be so fortunate.
It was Enoch the 7th from Adam who said it first. That before this age slips away, while salvation is still in process, that there would be a throng of the firstfruits executing judgment on earth of those who have put on the gift, the fullness of Christ, taking on their rightful due of ruling with Christ and executing judgment on planet Earth to wrap up this age and initiate the closure of salvation saying ““Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 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 [e]be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” Where are you in the process?
For this age hastens to wrap up with a rapid fire succession of events designed to engulf the wicked, but we are in the eye of the storm and command center of all things, seated far above all powers and principalities where Christ says, all eyes on Me. We are the Elect.
For now “The Kingdom of God is still at hand”. Come up hither!
God’s purpose for creation is to obtain people like Himself called The Elect. “For the Lord’s portion is his people; (Deuteronomy 32.9)
God’s objective for the Elect is to share His Glory with them. For this reason He is called “The Father of Glory”. He calls us to Himself so we must participate in this project.
When He is done with us, He is what we become. Even as it’s written that the gospel is “for the edifying of the body of Christ, 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 full measure and stature of the fullness of Christ;
How do we do this? With scripture, Eternal life for those who by patient continuance seek for Glory, Honor and Immortality. It is as we seek these things, the Holy Spirit reciprocates God’s glory as Paul also taught us that “we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transfigured into His self same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” Showing for us that the vehicle we use to get to Glory is not a train, a boat, car or a plane but the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit also strives for this cause saying “the Spirit makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because the Spirit makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.”
Fortunately for us Paul was at the suffering stage of his transformation so we can understand that our part is to persevere because “our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal”.
Our afflictions are equal to the obstacles we encounter in the temporal realm of things we need to hold on to loosely.
These things cause afflictions, and prohibit your transfiguration. This is why we “lay aside every weight and sin that easily ensnares us, running the race with endurance, looking to Christ the author and finisher of our faith”.
Why? Because He is the storehouse where all of our wares come from to help our cause. Even as Christ spoke to the woman at the well “if you knew who you are talking to, you would ask and I would give you the living waters”. And so we did.
Our Glory is a shared Glory. Even as Paul went on to describe this saying, “For it is God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to bring to light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. This is why He said “if you see Me, you have seen the Father.
Paul also described the Glory as being part of the salvation package with these words “Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.This is a faithful saying.” So we don’t want to stop short of aquiring the “Eternal Glory” as something we are expected to partake of.
As we participate in this Heavenly gaze, we become what we see and the Works of God are carried out in us. Likewise God’s work in us reaches a completion as well. That is what the completion is, Glory of a Heavenly sort, so you need not wait for another physical appearing to bring you something God hasn’t already given us.
From the beginning of creation, God put in play a harvest designed uniquely for Him of entities that resemble Him. The writer of Hebrews put it like this “For it became fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many to glory” Christ’s objective for becoming human. It is for us the Elect, to bask in this blessedness of Knowing Him fully.
It is to bring forth the replicas of “The Only Begotten” with His attributes for the “Father of Glories”. To begat offspring of His kind being “bone of His bone, and flesh of His flesh” of glorious spirit and truth. This is what the Father seeks. Such are the Elect. We are the purpose, objective and conclusion of creation.
As it says in Ephesians “That in the consumation of the fulness of times, God would gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him”.
And because it is said of Christ “He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, in order to fill all things.”
Because He is everywhere, we don’t need to go somewhere to be gathered to Him but Spirit and Truth, because God is not bound by creation, so also our new person cannot be confined as such.
We know we are gathered to Him already because we can’t get any closer to Him than we already are for He is the “I will never leave you or forsake you” and the “Lo I am with you always. And “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever”. (Hebrews 13.8)
We are gathered together “in Christ” with these words and fulfill our fullness of times. As Paul described as being “each one in their own order” (1 Corinthians 15. 23 ) showing us there is a successive order, and every age has a harvest.
John defined us as those “Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of men but of God”.
James says “we are born by the word of truth to be a kind of firstfruits of His creation” of things that supersede the 6-day creation. “each one in their own order” so maybe now it is your turn.
The gospel refers to a successive order with these words “For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear” showing the progression. The Elect are the full heads of corn plucked and held in the father’s hand. Guarded, preserved and protected “in Christ”.
Scripture also says “the wheat and tares mature together”, and “the first shall be last and the last shall be first”. There is a greater maturation today as the harvest time ripens. We see wickedness abound but there is a spiritual abounding not readily discernable to the carnal senses that prevails. “For the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain anticipating the manifestation of the offspring of God”.
We are popping like popcorn, “first the blade then the full head, and “the Gates of hell will not prevail”. They can only lend to our cause because they are food for us.
Jude talked of these filthy dreamers who are”Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of glories. (Corrected to the Greek)
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against the glories before the Lord” Their accusations are not heard.
As Jude affirms ”
these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of Glories.
9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a valid accusation but said to Satan, the Lord rebuke you. We however have the power to rebuke Satan ourselves and say “get behind me’. The shadows is where he belongs.
It is us the Elect who are born of the spirit who have our earthen hardware in tact because since Christ was God-like in human form, He shows us it is possible to become His full stature now, because as He is, so are we in the world”. Even as Paul said “let the mind that was in Christ Jesus be in you. Who being in the form of a man, thought it not robbery to be equal with God”.
Having our lowly external body, filled with our internal, spiritual man who is seated Eternal in the heavens “in Christ”, to rule and reign with him even now and fulfill the verse in ourselves that says “we are complete in Him who is head over all principalities and Powers”. Us having attained the victory over the sub sector rogue entities who decieve. Having pulled down every high things that exaulted (past tense) itself against the knowledge of God” and using them to walk on. We clamoured up the things God has said to join Him there, at His behest. His word did not return to Him void, because we returned with that Word and fulfilled the words of Christ who said”follow me that where I am you may be also, and we did. We are the elect. It did not give us a task we could not accomplish.
We are not counted with those who think “my Lord has delayed his coming” because He comes by stealth to give us according to our work be it fear or faith. You receive according to your dominant mindset. Our minds have been re-fitted, formatted and rescripted by scripture to become word, God’s Word. Like God’s Son who was Word before He became human.
We are God’s overcomers. And “who is it that overcomes the world? Those who believe that Christ came in the Flesh” and need not come and save again. (1 John 5)
Just as you must have gills and fins to follow a fish, and you must have wings to mingle with birds, Christ is God’s Word and you must become Word to follow Him. This is how He is “the way, the truth and the life” and “no one comes to the Father except through Me”. So we did. We put word on. We join Him there. Like Jacobs ladder we climb up. Even as Christ said “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man”. Showing us that Word is verticle climb in the spirit for the reversal and eraser of the fall.
This is an irreversible, eternal work of something far greater than an elusive second coming concept, and different work from the 6 days of creation. We call it “the rest of God” from which He ceased from creating. We rest from our works too.
All the law and the prophets meticulously laid this ladder out over a few thousand years for our understanding, beginning with Moses through the Red Sea symbolizing baptism. Forget about the 40 year wandering, that was disasterous. Then their journey continued with Joshua into the promised land with the works of the collective shouts. Then with David taking all the artifacts laid out in the previous ages, the priest, the commander-in-chief and King of Israel, with the ark of the Covenant which contained the tablets and show bread and such David stood them up like a ladder and went up into Jerusalem, both physical and invisibly. David then danced naked in public, symbolizing the completion and expiration of all the temporal old Covenant artifacts, for the implimentation of the Eternally New things in Christ, showing The Revelation and unveiling of Jesus Christ and His eternal Bride, His city, Heavenly Jerusalem. All of this was done before the Son went to the cross to impliment the New Covenant. Heavenly Jerusalem is where all the old concepts expire, pointing to the eternal form as being “the Kingdom prepared from the foundation of the world” and the original eternal images of “God made man in His image male and female made He them” King and Kingdom. Heavenly Jerusalem is the female of the Godhead. The one on earth was Hagar and Mt Sinai.
Those old artifacts physically mimicked invisible realities hidden in Christ of things God told Moses “see that you make all things according to the pattern I showed you. Because the law Covenant was only patterns and pictures of the reality invisible to the naked eye, “for eye has not seen, not ear heard the things that God has for those who love Him. But He reveals them to us by His spirit, ya even the deep things of God”. Yes even the hard and complicated become comprehendable. Even as we are told “you have the unction from the Holy one and you know all things”so there should be no confusion. With this you should have your silent witness.
For the old Covenant wanderers, God’s Glory was denied. Moses was shielded from His Glory as the Lord passed by and Moses only saw the trail of light that lingered. As Christ said “those who have seen Me, have seen the Father. And “when we see Him we shall be like Him.
This is what the good news provides. This is what the gospel delivers. Replicants of the Father full of Glory. This why Paul told the Philippeans “5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it [b]robbery to be equal with God” and so we do.
The Israelites journey was one physically on Earth, but ours is not. We have a Heavenly calling and aspiration. The Heavenly Father did not give us a journey we could not accomplish. But you must walk in the spirit to complete this journey and not with human feet.
There is no comingling of the two. Even as Paul said “flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom of God”, but the re-spirited mind of faith does. Paul also said, “For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I withyouin the spirit” showing he learned the distinction between the inner and the outer man to discard his old limitations, as do we. This is how we know we are the Elect. In this way we fulfill the verse that says, the wind blows where it wishes to you can hear the sound of it but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it goes, so is everyone born of the spirit” having attributes and features unique only to God and His offspring.
Even as scripture says ” I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Cor 6) so we must see ourselves like Him.
Isaiah spoke of the Elect saying “they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?” We know. It is us, the Elect.
We have a birdseye view, and this perch is not our own. “But to as many as recieved Him, to them He gave them power to become the children of God, even to those who believe in His name”. So you may join us too if you have this kind of faith. You could say, we are birds of a feather, come on up.
The father is most glorified when his task has been completely fulfilled in his offspring, the children of Glory as those perched with Him there.
Isaiah also said for us “In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee. My Elect shall long enjoy the works of their hands.
As it was written of old times “Israel hath not obtained what he seeks for; but the electhave obtained it, and the rest were blinded.” Again that is true in our day. It is the religious establishments of our day who are hardened and knash their teeth at these concepts as they have always done showing who their father is.
Paul explained how important it is for the Elect to know how to activate their glorious heritage in Timothy saying “Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the Elect, that they also may obtain the salvation that is in Christ with Eternal Glory.
And if you are “in Christ” you are with eternalGlory. They are inseparable. This is the purpose of the Gospel and Paul’s express concern. Salvation with Eternal Glory. In God’s Heavens the two are indistinguishable. “All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God”? We are fallen no more. Salvation is His glory in us restored, from Faith to Faith.
There are no other tools or mechanisms to get you there. For all flesh is like grass and withers, but the Word of the Lord endureth forever”. This is why you must become Word to join Us here.
Peter says “ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: 9 receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.” Showing that recieving the Glory is your obtainable crown and the reason for your humanity.
If the salvation message you heard does not include the gift of “eternal glory” as the objective of your pilgrimage, you’re not hearing the whole salvation message. If you are only half saved, you are still being saved and your journey is still in progress, “to the degree you are able to receive”.
“All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God”? You cannot be judged and condemned for something you are not capable of accomplishing.
Every human being has the potential of the Glory of God through repentance and perseverance, which simply means, turn around in your thinking and head for God. If you continue your journey from God you remain condemned. If you confess with your mouth, and believe in your heart in your inner man, you shall be saved, as long as this remains your new journey.
The price was paid, the gift was given, you have been forgiven and full clemency has been granted. You will never stand in God’s judgment for sins of the past. Only Satan brings that up. You are now evaluated by what you have aquired by faith in your inner person. Your old self has been dealt with, condemned and put out of business.
As Paul said of your body in Romans, recon it dead. Recon is an accounting term. Your debt column is closed and paid in full in blood, as evidenced by the cross. Unless you want to go back there, but even as the Israelites were instructed at their Passover, when the angel of death past over “eat this in haste” meaning accept it and move on. God is not impressed by those who are at the cross wallowing in their sin and self pity. Commence your journey. Proceed to the Glory, the destination of your Heavenly calling, the Pinnacle of faith. Seated in Glory, where the journey is over. Receive the gift. Relax.
Isaiah 55 put it like this ”
Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David”.
The sure mercies of David are in the promise of his son, not the physical one but the heir of that throne, Christ, being “The King of Kings and The Lord of lords. In Him the gospel message is complete.
This is why scripture says that “we are complete in him who is head over all power the principalities”, showing that we have the eternal glory too, gifted to us by the cross to be implimented by faith in this age and every age.
That we partake of a greater body of being “in Christ” of a heavenly sort. As Peter said “we are living stones built together a habitation for God in the spirit, and not man made structures and earthen buildings or human bodies, but nevertheless a body and a structure, but indiscernible to the carnal senses of taste, touch, sight, sound and smell, but perfectly understood by the re-scripted mind of faith as the body of Christ.
Paul says to those “not discerning the [h]Lord’s body (temple and building). 30 For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many [i]sleep” (or die) to the things of God, showing it’s an agregious error to comingle Heavenly things with carnal, “for the carnal mind is enmity against the things of God. It is not subject to the things of God and neither indeed can be so then those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
This violates the eternal laws of kind begats according to kind “begats after kind” set in place from the beginning and reinforced in Noah’ who only took on male and female according to their kind. Fish for fish, bird for birds, mammal for mammals, man for woman and spirit for spirit. And we are a kind of firstfruits of His creation of spiritual things eternal and other worldly.
If the Glory seams too hard to accept, we need to go no further than the nectar of the Gospel where Christ went to the Father and asked for some specifics. He is prayed not for the world, but those whom the Father had given Him, namely us. Here is that discourse:
17 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
You shall judge angels? Yes! But first you need to be able to identify them, evaluate and detach from them lest you partake of their judgment.
In 1 Corinthians 6 Paul gave us some information regarding our responsibilities as becoming saints for our inaguration as the Elect with these words.
2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world?
3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
It is in our sojournment here on earth in this life that we train for true godliness. Which is not a religious piety. It is God-like-ness. God is the Judge of all the earth, and everything else for that matter. God duplicates Himself through the Gospel. This is why God is “The Father of Glories” because His people are uniquely like Him. Which are called “according to the measure of those who are the stature of an angel” (Revelation 22.17)
We are raised above the fallen ones for analysis, discovery and insite into what they are doing, for our spiritual enhancement. Hence “ye shall judge angels”. This life is our training center. We know who we are, in contrast to those who are fallen. I
It was the angels original purpose, to go between God and men. Having departed that cause, they don’t get the next best thing but they serve in the opposite way. Instead of glorifying God for the sake of humanity, they glorify themselves for humanities demise and all that subscribe to their views and products.
Because they appeal to supposed needs of people, with faces of benevolence, but take advantage of the simple minded for dishonest gain, and building a name for themselves. That is why “you shall know them by their works.
This is the sin of Babylon,
And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.”
Here you have modern day Zionism and Illuminati as seen by their logo of the Pyramid. By overlapping two pyramids, one of them upside down, you have the supposed star of David. A symbol that had no roots older than the same star of rothchild. The only difference is the color, but they serve the same cause. “As above, so below”. Which means, let us build on earth likenesses of what we saw when we (the fallen) were in Heaven. Which echos sounds from Babylon.
Because of the Balfour declaration and the events that follow, they have their seat in their capital in modern day Israel in Jerusalem, which is a poor rendition of the one of old. Whose supreme court building is litered with their icons, symbology and satanic imagery. “With all lying signs if possible to decieve the elect”. They are counterfeits who repurpose God’s names for their things on earth. The Elect know the correct association of God’s things are eternal in the Heavens.
It was antcient Babylons quest to:
4 let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name.”
You see their logos in religions of today, embedded into streets and structures and on flags, currencies and government buildings.
“You cannot serve God and money”. And money is the blood in their veins which funds their projects that serve the beast. Christ was seen early on overturning the money changers tables showing His distain.
It was God who said “25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.”
So they pollute defiantly. Their pyramid structure is made up of Freemasons, meaning Stone builders. Any persons, agencies that build upon their lies and glorify the beast are set up for eternal damnation. It’s called a beast because the Creator did not create it. It seeks to be God, but death and destruction are its paths and are left in its wake.
Even as Isaiah says “24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an eternal abhorrance”.
It was Daniel who made known to the king his frightful vision, when he said that “In the days of these kings the God of Heaven shall set up a kingdom that shall not be destroyed or left to another people”. He was speaking of this great mountain that crushed that Rock that’s hewn by them saying. But the Great Mountain is the stone that was built without hands. Showing for us the contrast and who the opposition is. Man-made verse the one come down from Heaven of God.
Make no mistake, the beast will not be glorified. That manufactured mountain will be dispersed and spread out like chaff in the wind. Even as they say in their lyrics, all we are is dust in the wind? They know.
At its appointed time .Daniel said during the days of these Kings He will set in place His Kingdom? Yes. The wheat in the tears mature together,and we are the light that defeats the dark that take back the things that belong to us. This is why Christ instructed us saying “19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth[h]will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
Us who are living stones built up a habitation of God in the spirit, living Stones have no other than elements.
It is those who have put off the body of sins of the flesh (Col 3.9), who commit no adultery, nor was any guile found on our mouths, who have come out of Babylon, who perceive these things.
God in the beginning bestowed upon mankind the ability to judge, discern and allocate according to needs for the purpose to Govern and bless like God. To “have Dominion” and to be godlike on earth as long as they were in relationship with God for guidance and proper implimentation of His things. But these have stolen, and re-impliment for their purpose.
To this we are restored when Christ’s work is accomplished in us. Recieving the end of your faith, the salvation of your soul”. And “All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God”? We are fallen no more. The Glory is re-attached.
The inner strength, power and ability was given to man but it was userped by another, Satan. Man was emptied from that strength and filled with fear. In this way Satan became mans successor of this power but not by God. God did not do this. God gives us “Love Power and a sound mind.” This was traded for laziness, hatred cowardness and craziness.
Adam gave his power away when he turned from the voice of God and employed anothers advice, who was in the forbidden tree. This however did not thwart Gods plan because as the “All Knowing” He had prepared for the inevitability. (Yes, their is another coming “all knowing one” and we will get to that later. That is the deciever of the forbidden fruit the other tree represents.)
God said immediately after Adam and Eves departure “behold man is become like one of us, to know good and evil (however the other tree teaches that too) and now, lest he also put forth his hand, and take of the tree of life and eat and live for ever.” Which was the reward of the fruit of the tree of life. Man had the choice of sharing in God’s things, but was tricked into believing they can become gods by themselves. So they went out on their own and God’s things they were denied and the reason for their departure from Eden, God’s garden of deliciousies where they were to enjoy the things God does, in turn is denied.
God stopped mankind’s ability to become God’s forever enemy by removing the tree of eternal life from their reach. He however provides another entrance for that called salvation. Of which one of the products is stated like this “To them that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life.” They get a do over.
The Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden”. Had God not removed the tree from reach, He would have forever enemies. For now there is just a temporary breach. But the patch for this repair was implimented being “The Lamb of God slain from the foundations of the world” so nobody would miss out on redemption for God is just.
It was man who departed so it had to be man to return. With the whole human race on the line the Godhead conferred. “Which one of us shall go and whom shall we send from among us?” And the Son said “here am I, send Me”. And so He was appointed. In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh and dwelled among us”. (Tabernacled with us)
This had to happen because a man departed, a man had to return, but before He returned He had to mend the tare and repair the breach. And because Christ was both God and man, He was the only one who could do this. He was vested in both kingdoms. “For their is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”. For this reason He had to be both God and man to properly represent both sides as arbitrator.
Too bad they didn’t eat of the tree of life first tho, but because they didn’t, to this they were denied because God did not want this battle to insue forever. This anticipated event would not thwart God’s purpose to His offspring for Glory. No, as a matter of fact, the offspring of another sort, becomes food for our understanding and objects for our development for whom we shall judge because we are re-imaged like God through scripture and the power of the Holy Spirit. We shall not be denied? No, God shall not be denied because we do not come in our own name but His. He is the way and we are His people “of the way”. Our journey is to follow Him. He is our destination and to Him we arrive. “We are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. This is the Gospel completed.
And because we were created for this cause, we need to understand that we must be ready for our public inaguration before this age wraps up, because we become active participants of the final implimentation of the things God has said, and proof that creation has served the Creator by producing replicants. We are doing that even now. Christ said “greater works shall you do” because we carry out the things He has said. We are congruent, we are the Elect.
“For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated”.
God is the cultivator, We are the harvest of what God planted, being His Word. He see’s His planting take root, and the things that He says coming forth from us and fulfilled the words of Christ saying “Father, I have given Your Word to those You have given Me and they have kept it”. How does He know we kept it? Because we repeat the things He has said not from a text on a page, but of the things God has written on our hearts. We are the reiterations of the things He has said as proof that the scripting by the Word of the Son, and the penmenship of the Holy Spirith wrought from the Earth His prescious fruit, being His reverberations of Himself from us.
We have the final say as proof that Gods purpose of obtaining entities like Himself unfolds to perfection. Remember? He is seated waiting for His enemies to become His footstool” by us as His accomplishments.
“Let us make man in our image and likeness”, and do He did. There is not one obstacle unforseen to the Everlasting Almighty King of Kings and Lord of lords to prevent this cause and effect. “See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord [f]is at hand”. Meaning within reach even now!
Since we understand that our enemies are our food, then it stands to reason that we should know them through the eyes of God with His views and His judgments. We know the mechanisms with which they operate revealed to us through our training Manuel called scripture.
The scriptures say that “the ruler of this world has been judged”. Meaning condemned contained and incarcerated, only given permission to expidite Our cause. “The wheat and the tares mature together” and We have been sifted as wheat but got the victory.
The Prince of the power of the air and The gateways for the fallen angels final implimentation of deception.
The book of the Revelation speaks of a time when the bottomless pit is opened and contaminates the air. However it does not effect the vegitation. With this we can understand this contamination is not the air that we breath, but the air waves that seek to control us and saturate our heads. The vegitation is pervious to this because the carbon dioxide and oxygen are not affected. We are talking about an air or in Greek pneumas which also means spirit.
This is why Satan is called “the prince of the power of the air”, be it radio, tv, internet, 4g, 5g or quantum computing and such. Satan has partial influence in all these as evidenced by the logos the influence becomes complete. As all info becomes available online and physical books and archives are destroyed, then s full scrubbing will take place. Right now there is scrubbing in part but then there will be filters to sift to you your daily meal of lies and entertainment for your enslavement. They called it a cell phone because it becomes people’s prison cell where they live vicariously through imaginary icons and embellished self images. This is why “those who love the world, the love of the Father is not in them”.
But for us there is only one Logo. Logo in Greek means word and the real Word is the Son of God. “In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God, He was in the beginning with God”.
This is the Elects Logo and the God of our age because we have implimented God’s mandate to “come out of her my people lest you partake of her sins and recieve of her judgements”. Yes we have put off the works of wickedness and have withdrawn our association from the gods of this age by not subscribing to their services by agreeing with their terms and conditions. Our subscription is one, God.
We say like Christ did that “The god of this age comes and he has nothing in us” because we opted out. We are allieged to one. God is one, and we have no outside services. God is our provider for health, safety, security and retirement, a thing we never do because we live on and death has no hold on us because “those who have the Son have life, those who do not have the Son do not have life” because they bought in to other plans, with monthly payments to multiple services to exploit for themselves your earning potential which makes them mega conglomerates which blinds you with their empty promises because you work harder and longer but you are sicker and die younger, which is you working by the curse to earn money (you cannot serve God and money) which blindly keeps you in servitude to your lower fallen nature.
The gift of God to mankind from the beginning to be like God, has no value to those who subscribe to these invisible ones with logos
At some point this age will be unhinged from truth. Truth is being scrubbed from the internet as we speak. For now we have choices like in the Garden however the choice of eternal life by believing the gospel according to godliness of which we speak, is not one of them. Given enough time these venues will be truncated and completely severed from the truth which is “in Christ”. They feed you your own personally, sculpture for you your own opinions to keep captive your carnal mind on world events to keep you from looking up. Your enemy knows if he can keep you looking down, you will not see “The Kingdom of God at Hand’. He wants you enslaved and captivated for His using your own usurped power. Satan really is nothing for us. He is just a defanged lion and roadkill experienced by those in the world, from whom we have disenfranchised, because our franchise is from Heaven as “The Kingdom of God at Hand” with all Her provisions, all Her providers, all Her safeties and all Her luxeries, Heavenly Jerusalem come down from God of Heaven. (Galatians 4.26, Hebrews 12.22 and Revelation 3.12, 22.2 and 22.10)
You can tell by the various logos they stand behind and the content they broadcast, that they are sick treacherous decievers for which the flames are stoking up even now.
And because Christ defeated Satan, sin and death at the cross, we do not get involved with such topics. We are the Elect who have surpassed that.
We do however observe and learn as we see the enemy of mankind progressing and developing in a continuance of a greater trap for the enslavement of those “born of the dust to return to the dust”. It is these that have been given to the snake from the beginning saying “dust you shall eat all the days of your life”. And those who work the earth with the curse? Their works are rendered ineffective and unacknowledged in the eyes of God. “For all the earth and all the works shall be burned for the eternal to remain. Therefore what manner of persons ought we to be in all manner of godliness”. Meaning god-like-ness. So Satan and his minions only do as they are told and the only works that endure are the works of faith of the things we do at the behest of God.
What then do we learn from these enemies of mankind? First to identify who they are and how they operate. Christ said “if the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness?” So we can understand that they are a false illumination. They bring to light not the knowledge of God, but the knowledge of self interests. They wake up appetites and feed them to people. How do we know what they are and how to be protected? We need not go any further than the Garden of Eden and learn of the tree of “the knowledge of Good and evil” and the warning God gave not to interact with the alternate source and the competition for souls of the things that are pleasing to behold and able to make one wise, even Godlike. The alternate source. But God gave that as a free gift to all would be believers, but because that seems to easy, and faith is the only proof they have, they reject that for something more tangible.
Angels first domain was to meditate between God and man, being given power to navigate through the veil to deliver to humanity their nessesities from the Almighty God “for our God shall supply all your needs according to His Glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Angels before they aligned themselves to the apple tree, were mediators, then the prophets were, then Christ, then those are “in Christ” being “the body of Christ” as the final installment. “There is one mediator between God, and man, the man/God Christ Jesus”.
Christ earned us of these darkened emissaries for Satan “you shall no them by their fruit”. Well we know a manure pit breads flies and worms because it all stinks. But it is these that appear with promises of benevolence whose effects are destructive. “For Satan himself can transform into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” Yes, they shall be judged according to their works because they deliver the opposite of what they promise, usually associated with their names and logos. These are just some hints at what to observe
Here is an example. They solicit parents to steal their unborn babies and send them home parentless and they planned it this way. “You shall know them by their fruit?” Their fruit is opposite what they solicit. Those who do this are slated for hell.
Divination, prognosticating, sooth Sayer, vaticinate, prophecying and calculating algorithms are all verbage used to describe those who predict the future and put in a stupor those who subscribe to them.
Most high tech is just for this cause. They steel people’s most intimate thoughts, feelings and quirks to anticipate what they need and want. In this way they steer them, control them and lead them around like blind people led by fear.
Amazon as inferred that it could know that a lady is pregnant before her or her doctor does by the way she has been eating and behaving.
John 7.37 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said,out of their heart will flow rivers of living water.”39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those [g]believing in Him would receive;
This shows for us the elect, that God’s gift to us is not just a quiet resolve inside of us but His things inside of us that come bellowing out explaining things of His spirit. Even as the disciples said in the book of Acts, we can’t help but to speak of the things we hear and see, reiterating the words of Christ who said “we speak when we hear and testify to what we see”. Our testimony is the same. These are the unctions and promptings of God’s Holy Spirit in us. This is the river of living water.
We are the flowing streams of Truth in the spirit. “For it became fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringingmany to Hisglory.
It is as we speak of His Glory, we share of His Glory. In this way we become active participants of things eternal.
This is the purpose of our calling, and why Paul set out to attain to all the riches in Christ, to a perfect man and full stature in the likeness of Christ. To share the glory which is the destination of our Heavenly calling. “For God has not appointed us to wrath but the obtaining of His Glory.” By proclaiming His Glory, we share in the Glory and fulfill the words of Christ when He said “Father, the Glory you have given Me, I have given them (speaking of us) that they may be one with us. And so we are.
” For our conversation is of heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.”
And this glorious body from heaven is not the same as the one fashioned from dirt because “that which is flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the spirit is spirit. You must be born again”. And we are.
It is the spirit that wends its way around as it wishes. Even as Christ told told Nicodemus,the wind blows where it wishes, you can hear the sound of it but you cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes, so is everyone who is born of the spirit. Showing for us that we possess something far more illusive than what you see when you look in the mirror.
1st Corinthians 15. Paul looked forward to this in hoping to attain with these words:
The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. 43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. 44 It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 45And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam (Christ) became a life-giving spirit. (Such are we if we are “in Christ)
46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the earth, made[i] of dust; the second Man is like the Lord of (things from) heaven. 48 As was the [k]man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. 49 And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we (in turn) bear the image of the heavenly Man.”
This is the purpose of the Gospel which is “The power of God for Salvation to all who believe” to those with active pursuit.
It was Paul who said of Christ “who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen nor can see”. Showing for us the physical senses are detached from the Spirit. And of John who said “those who sin have neither seen Him or known Him”. John also said of Christ “when we see Him we will be like Him. This we did. Because we saw something with the eyes of our understanding. Eph 1.18
We became something the eyes in your head can’t see. For seeing with their eyes they see not, for it is with the heart you must see to take on the things of God”. The human body with the carnal senses does not keep us from this, but unbelief does. That is why we are told in Romans 8 that “the carnal mind is enmity against God. It is not coherent to the things of God and cannot be so that those who are in their carnality cannot please God.”
Romans goes on to say that “those who are led by the spirit of God, these are the children of God. Yes, God’s Spirit in us, convinces us of this.
Our Final Victory
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption”.
It is the re-spirited mind of faith that has them both. As Paul spoke of in Romans 7 saying “
O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of sin and death? Then answers himself saying “I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.” In this way we participate in two realities. The life in the spirit becomes more real than the one the carnal mind is familiar with. In a sense we have a dual citezineship, however the Heavenly takes precedence because we recon it so.
Christ alluded to this to Nicodemus when He told him that “No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man[b]who is in heaven.
This teaches us that because Christ was able to be in Heaven and on earth at the same time, so can we. And we should expect this because this is what the Gospel delivers. We call it “The Kingdom of God at hand” as something to grasp, but not with your hands.
Through our transfiguration to a life giving spirit as associating with the things of God as our new body.
In the book of Colossians Paul no longer talked of the body in the archaic old testament physical features but of the deeds of the body of the flesh defining the old man that we discard as these ”
5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
8But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
Showing the old person is a network of thoughts for selfish gain and pleasure while defining the new man as a new network of new thoughts like these ”
9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”
Paul shows us in these verses that our new body is a collection of feelings, thoughts and actions associated with the building up of the whole organism called the collective body of Christ, gathered not to a location on planet Earth, but gathered together to God “in Christ” to experience the life in the Spirit. This is our new body and new identification as a singular organism formed together for a new society identified by wholesome and goodly attributes that are just a breakdown of attributes when assembled constitutes love. This is why those who operate in love fulfill all the law and the prophets and fulfill the objectives of God of us being built together a habitation of God in the spirit.
There will be no other gathering because the Holy Spirit cannot be compounded to one spot. For He who descended also accended to fill all and all. And since Christ filled all, you don’t need to go somewhere physically to be gathered but spirit and truth. As He told the Samaritan lady at the well. The time that is coming is already here when you will not worship the Father in Samaria or Jerusalem but in Spirit and Truth, showing for us that it is not a place in time.
The Ten Commandments and all that followed can be summed up in this, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and soul, and you shall love your neighbor as yourself.
This shows us that our invisable body as being our heart mind and soul. This is your inner person that Paul referred to in Ephesians as he learned develope God’s view of who we are and for us to discard what he knew as a Jew, his old association.
We are motivated by the unctions of the spirit and not self. The flesh is just a vanier and a vessel. As Paul told Timothy. “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, [h]sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work”.
Where the Spirit is regarded there is no need for law. The things written on the heart supercedes written law. Therefore love is the fulfillment of all law.
When God created in the beginning, after each day He looked upon what He had done and said it was good. And on the last day He created man and said not only that is was good but very good. You see this day was not only good like the others, but very good because on this day He crowned His creation with an image and likeness of Himself. The human being was good, very good. Mankind in their humanity was magnificent and surmountably greater than all creation but somehow the religious man and religions of today despise mankind as evil. Mankind has the potential for God-like-ness and as a result mankind can become equally hanious. However the human body is really a neutral vessel. Much like a car, the driver can accomplish a lot of good or destruction, so too is the human body. If the body alone was bad then God should’ve ended this long ago. God is reaping His harvest.
We have to re-examine our understanding of the human body and see it the way God described as “good, very good” if coupled with the right spirit. You see the body has the ability to exude the glory of God. If this were not so we could not be condemned for not exuding His glory, but we were “for all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God.” This is the potential for each human and the responsibility of every serious believer. To attain our God given stature and heritage, and the purpose for our pilgrimage in the flesh.
Christ already had His body, put on the vanier of a human body showed us that by Him putting on the flesh, He tabernacled among us incognito being fully man and fully God. In a sense having two bodies. His man was full of God, exuding Glory “for in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body” and for us the elect? We are complete in Him too. Since this is so, let the bi-product of the Spirit called the living waters flow. Since the physical body returns to the dust, lay hold of your new body while you can. For the time is coming when this will be said:
Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 1 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him [e]be righteous still;
Let’s make sure we are found in our new habitation which is from heaven.
Paul put it like this “For we know that if our earthly [a]house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our [b]habitation which is from heaven, 3 if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked.”
For some of us the groaning is over, our nakedness is covered. We have put on the things God has said about us and made them our own. We are no longer naked, but cloaked like Christ was, incognito, fulfilling the Law of the Spirit.
The kingdom of God is at hand in it’s fullness and it’s entirely. Amen!
Revelation 1.3 Blessed are they who read and those who hear the words of the prophecy of this book, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time at hand. Meaning, if you understand the things that are written, they are relevant for you in your day.
KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST
We, as believers in Christ, know and understand that all things are held together by the power of His word. That Christ is before all things and in Him all things consist.
Hebrews 11 says, By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
What an insult! God is a particle? They reduce God to the smallest common denominator known to man? Blasphemy! This concept is actually a fight against the Creator. The scientists at CERN willingly admit they are playing with anti-matter, dark matter and distorting the building blocks of creation. This is an outright act of defiance, as if to shake their fists at the Creator?
At the entrance to one of its buildings, CERN has a statue of “Shiva the Destroyer” the anti-creator. This statue shows their intention. The Destroyer has other pagan names; “Abaddon” and “Apollyon.” Both are referred to in Scripture (Revelation 9). They all mean “The Destroyer.”
The Watchers and the overseers of CERN know they are playing with fire, and fire produces smoke. That is why scripture says that an angel fell and the bottomless pit was opened, “And smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit.”
However; the sun that is darkened is not the one in the sky above the earth but the Son of God, of whom scripture says, “3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.” He is the true light that shines into the world. The true light that the created sun mimics. The Son, the True Light, is what the smoke from the pit darkens, and the pit is a cavern in CERN that holds the LHC. With this they try to pass matter back into its original state of being invisible through stages of disassembly.
As the elect, we know Scripture was given to describe realities invisible to the carnal senses, with Christ’s words saying, “Seeing with their eyes they see not, and hearing with their ears they hear not. For it is with the heart that one must see and hear to understand the things of God”. Gods things are outside the relm of humanly tangible particles. To have faith is to believe in the invisible, and without this kind of faith one cannot know or please God. (Hebrews 11.1-6)
WOE TO THOSE WHO LOOK FOR A SIGN
Everybody is looking for physical signs while they interpret God’s words, and so they are confused. Such is the case with the smoke from the pit. You cannot see it with your eyes, but everyone knows our air is filled with waves of technological misinformation.
Just as we have TV and radio waves infesting our homes with the capacity and drive to promote despicable things. We also have cell phones and the internet polution plaguing the human mind, without the naked eye recognizing this smoke is from the pit of Hell. All counterfeits present themselves with good intentions and faces of benevolence. The internet was invented at CERN and it’s tenticals have a great reach.
We cannot deny the ubiquitous, godlike permeation of these waves with total saturation. Scripture says of God that, “Nothing is hidden from His sight.” It is “the prince of the power of the air” who through technology, seeks to imitate God with eavesdropping, photo taking and collecting algorithms. This is the smoke of that pit that fills the air; waves traveling through the air, with the intent to occupy and make sick the minds of humanity.
God gives us the mandate to, “Be renewed in spirit of your mind” becomes blurred, obscured and hidden. Instead the mind is now preoccupied with too many other things, mainly technology. Meaning tech knowledge. We the Elect are transfigured by a different knowledge and gain our godliness from Him. There is however a completing ubiquitum of which we warn. We have an unction from the Holy One and know all things. There is another knowing. It is the same Tempter from the “Tree of Knowledge” from “The Garden of Eden”. One of their logos is an apple missing a bite that presents bites for you to tempt you. Yes “fruit that is pleasant to the eyes able to make you wise”. But we have the eyes of our understanding to make us wise in a different way. (Ephesians 1.17 +)
Revelation says of this smoke that “it is something like locusts” dispatched to plague the minds of those “that have not the seal of God in the forehead.” In other words, it is in the spirit of the mind that the change takes place. The same place salvation takes place. Those who overcome the smoke are immune to the plagues. They are “over comers” and see right through it. We know who is behind it. Satan, the god of this age is behind it. But he has nothing in us who are “in Christ.”
MODERN DAY SORCERY
We are in the modern-day sorcery of pharmaceuticals. In Greek, the word pharmakeia means witchcraft, which are the drugs of today. They are prescribed today to help people cope with these plagues. Scripture also says that these “repented not of their sorceries,” meaning drugs. People are more likely to blame these plagues on global warming then interaction from the Creator who holds all things in place. God is responsible for creation and not CERN or man made global warming. The plagues are given for those who “do not repent for their sorceries” of being godly, meaning god-like. To govern their affairs with the counterfeit ubiquitum for false identities and selfishness. Scripture says “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
Technology at CERN is pedaled knowledge. When you get past the smoke screen, that is all it does. It collects knowledge about everyone and pedals it. https://careers.cern/professionals
Your data is collected with tracking, watching and listening to everything you do. This knowledge is used to exploit you and to manipulate your beliefs and behavior. It tracks your likes, dislikes, and desires by the keystrokes you type on your computer or cell phone while targeting your appetite with advertising from the information about you which they’ve tracked.
Every time you press the phone button you get a dopamine high with psychotropic results that mentally excites you, leading you into the herd mentality that has been created through technology. Your own shared brand of crazy with like minded of those they link you with.
The watchers, handelers and conductors who feed you these brands of crazy, work for their advantage of leading you into forms of nationalism, prejudices and pitting political and religious groups against each other to bring about chaos, dissension and hate. For the Elect their is only one nation, “The Kingdom of God at hand”.
In this way they exercise population control. They use Satan’s old adage of conquer and divide. This is the main tool of his trade; deception.
GOD GIVEN KNOWLEDGE VERSUS SATAN’S CERN
In scripture the knowledge of God is given to us, the elect. God is exploited in scripture for salvation , “to as many as receive Him, to them He gives them power to become His children, even to those who just believe in His name.”
But with Satan’s CERN, mankind is the known, being exploited to neutralize people from being saved by God so they can use people for their cause; the collection of human souls for slavery. Whereas the elect’s exploitation of God is godliness, god-likeness. Cern’s exploitation is to profit off mankind for their quest; to harvest your thoughts, feed your thoughts, to control your actions and, primarily, to deactivate your mind from hearing God as you chase the gods of this age that imprison you. You become allies with them by accepting their terms and conditions. This insulates you from God as you give yourself to this beast. All of the attributes that belong uniquely to God take their opposite form in the competing voice called “The Beast”. These two are contrasts. That’s why “you will know them by their fruit”.
This wickedness seeks to restrict you to your laptop and cell phone, the place where this opposition and mind control takes form. There is a reason it is called a cell phone. C.E.L.L. , get it? Prison cell. A cell is always an enclosure, an encapsulation and a containment. And because they control your thought processes with this, they deactivate you from your God given cause of being godly, to being a slave to their system.
Even the world wide web’s logo is that of a net wrapped around the world. Indicating a trap for its inhabitants and a web of confusion, for the enslavement of humanity.
GOD GIVEN PURPOSE
The God given purpose of all of creation itself is to bring forth children of God. “He who the Son sets free is truly free” and He frees His from that. We are above the smoke and confusion. We are free from these things and see them clearly because of our aerial view being “seated in the heavenlies in Christ.” For God is spirit and God is truth and seeketh such, and such are we. But woe to those who do not transform but remain as mere inhabitants of the Earth “for Satan has come down to you having great wrath” because “he knows his time is short.” This plague will compound deceiving and being deceived.
There are those of us who have risen above the smoke, occupy a stratosphere of the Spirit of the God of truth. We are those who have victory over the beast, over his mark and over his name. We see below us the angel flying in the heavens above the smoke with the eternal gospel .
What is the eternal gospel? As always, the eternal gospel is the Kingdom of God is at hand. His rule and His reign throughout the ages. It is not made up of components common to modern Man.
Warning! Do not let modern day religion sell you short, or rob you of your reward, but press in and “lay hold of why Christ laid hold of you.” This is our duty, roll and goal: to acquire our God given inheritance. The inheritance He has given while we are in this age and no other. For the day is coming when it will be said, “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 still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+22%3A11&version=KJV Then the door will be closed, the time to cross over will be done and the possibility of being saved from these things will have ended. For “Today is the day of salvation” and no other.
…..lest you wake up and are a shame that this day has passed you by.
The body of Christ is patterned after the Israel of the Old Covenant. (1 Corinthians 10.1-4) When the Israelites set up camp, it was set up with the village, tents, tabernacle and Holy of Holies. An aerial view of this set up shows it was laid out like a human body on the ground with legs, arms, torso and a head. The Tabernacle was the head and the Holy of Holies was the mind.
There were a series of barriers protecting the body first, meaning the people. Next was the camp of the meeting, and then the tabernacle for those purified for service. The Chief High Priest was the only person allowing into the Holiest and only on rare occasions.
Camp was all laid out for us to understand some things about our community and personal sanctification. Under the New Covenant our human bodies are the temples of the living God. The God of this age comes, meaning we have sifted through all the debris of body and spirit to be suitable for us to be “a habitation of God in the spirit.
Just as the Israelites had protocol for any foreign bodies to enter the camp, so too we protect and guard our mouth, mind, ears and nose to retain our God given personal sovereignty. We cannot control the things outside so much for that has been given to another. We can however discern and regulate all things by “the unction of the Holy Spirit”. And this we must do. We are responsible for what happens inside ourselves because of the harm it may produce.
This is why we are called to “cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of flesh and spirit perfecting holiness in the fear of God. And to “come out from among them and be he separate and I will recieve you, says the Lord. And “be ye holy as I am Holy.
1 Corinthians 6.19+ says “do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God?
To sanctify is to have a clean body. The holiest part called Our inner sanctuary is the mind, which is the reason for the mandate to “be renewed in the spirit of your mind”. The place to interface with the living God.
Christ stated, “As in the days of Noah,” providing a sign for the elect who would be around at the end of the age. This sign was to alert those at the end of the age that Noah’s men of renown [would be] known again, around again.
The days of Noah were infested with Nephilim. Nephilim are fallen angels. These fallen angels were self-proclaimed sons of god. They came into the daughters of humans and begat offspring called “men of renown.” They begat themselves over and over, and are known over and over, generation after generation, each time with a new face. Similar to how “Adam knew Eve by depositing something of himself in her thereby giving her a son. Except these entities were known over and over through multiple incarnations by the same spirits deposited in different people.
The word renown comes from “to know” — to pass on information. In this case genetic information.
Paul said to the Galatians, now that you have known God, or better yet been known by God, why do you subject yourself to the basic elements of the world? This shows they are elementally different. Not of earth but Spirit and Truth…. indicating a genetic transfer and how one is born again of the Spirit. For us to be known by God as Eve was known by Adam, we have a new genetic disposition to be Godly, meaning God like.
THE ELECT OR SONS OF SATAN
You can be begotten carnally like Adam from dust to dust, or be begotten by the “Father of lights,” and the “Father of glories” to be like Him, or take on the spirit of the fallen angels that roam the Earth. It is what is deposited in your mind and soul that indicates who your spiritual father is.
Christ called the Jewish leaders, “Sons of Satan,” and “you do the deeds of your father.” The Elect are “begotten (born again) by the word of Truth to be a kind of first fruit of His creation,” says the book of James. As Paul put it, “We are a new creation in Christ,” being newly created and redeemed from being “in Adam.” Those who received the fallen angels or Nephilim, were begotten by a different spirit. They were begotten by the spirit of the Nephilim, the fallen angels which are the self-proclaimed sons of God.
You can have more than one genetic disposition. Your first one is inherited, the second one is your choice. It is a choice you can make with a conscious decision to either choose light, or receive darkness by denial and default. The choice can also be to willingly choose darkness. Willingly choosing darkness will incur a greater condemnation.
The Nephilim, or fallen angels, made their choice to separate from God. They became His opposition, the contrast and counterfeit by their hatred of Him and His image, called “man.”
MEN OF RENOWN
When one host body expires, the fallen angels go to another. Genesis 6.4 says “The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown.” They birthed men of renown. Their genetic information was known over and over. In this way they think they are eternal.
Renown also means of great stature, famous and well known. They are persons of position and fame. These attributes are coveted by the Nephilim, self-proclaimed sons of God. Nephilim desire to be in control which is why they flocked to governments and corporate control. They become the ruling class over rogue entities and agencies that masquerade as good for humanity.
These spirits live on consecutively in one host body after another. The embryos of the daughters of men were filled with Nephilim DNA. Similar to Eve’s embryo being filled with Adam’s DNA. These self-proclaimed “sons of God” are spirit, so when the host body died the bodies returned to dust but the spirit did not. The spirits were free to roam the earth looking for other host bodies from women they chose. Their demonic disposition was birthed over and over in the daughters of men.
We, the elect, understand that God’s Word is broken down into sound bites. Sound bites of Spirit and Truth broken down into words we call “the Word of God.” The Word of God is the Son of God and the accumulation of the things God said about Himself (John 1.1). It has been passed on to us for our transfiguration into His realm (2 Corinthians 3.18). So, likewise, we can understand that there are other words put together as an accumulative of the things not of God, but of Satan.
SONS OF SATAN
The sons of Satan are contrast of light. They are darkness. If the light that is in you is Darkness, how great is that Darkness? And just as one is born again of the spirit through Word, (John 3.3) there are others that are born of another spirit. They are the brood of vipers. Brood means offspring. And there are many.
The Nephilim offspring, who were also called giants, were not called giants just because of a physical stature, but their persona and presence through the high places they occupied for advantage of things they knew about from whence they fell. They were also able to amass huge amounts of knowledge through continual incarnations which made them appear to be superior people. If you lived thousands of years you would know a lot more, too.
Some seemed so smart they were deemed god-like and became people of importance in high places. But they are not like God. They are scammers, shysters, wannabes and impostors, liars and deceivers. They tout their seemingly superhuman abilities and vast understanding. They were able to amass great knowledge because they lived longer than normal humans, and they retained their understanding from one host to another, because their spirits lived beyond the fleshly bodies they use like disposable cups.
A side note about these decievers is that the word “renoun” in Hebrew comes from the name Shem, the son of Noah. This is where the term Semite comes from. Anti- Semitism today is a term they stand behind to avoid scrutiny and to punish those who resist them. Like all of God’s things, they steal them and repurpose them for their gain, so you know who they are today.
Fallen angels live in host bodies suitably prepared through their words, doctrines and teachings to be counterfeits of God. Self-declared sons of God, but not according to God. “For what fellowship has light with darkness, and what accord has the Lord with Beliar?” None.
Those Semites, who think they are superior to men, seem to be superior only because they have the collected knowledge and understanding of multiple lives and have shared information from their association with the hive mentality of the cluster of demons delegated by the chief demon, Satan. Which is why “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty from God for pulling down strongholds and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”. That is what they do. They exault themselves as God’s people of old called the Jews.
How do they become superior in knowledge? They become superior through their assorted degrees of mastery exercised through the ages of collected information from consecutive incarnations. They occupy the gates of the cities as in the days Lot was in Sodom, meaning government offices.
But the elect “are seated far above all powers and principalities in the heavenlies in Christ.” So we know the renown better than they know themselves. We know who they are and what they are doing today. Even as Paul said “know yet not that we shall judge angels?” Yes, fallen ones. So it should not be strange that we understand their cloaking mechanisms.
There are lower level rogue spirits meandering in search for empty, gullible souls. They foist themselves on the ignoring souls of people who reject the good news of salvation by faith. These people ared dominated by having an obscured idea of what being human is about. From the beginning we were made into an image of God, a reflection. They disregard this and become beggars given into the fascination of the voices that repeat themselves in new types of manifestations for mutual amusement. These confuse, connive and confound in order to restrict, hold back and agitate the many souls held suspended in chaos and confusion who are lost from their purpose.
HOW CAN IT HAPPEN
When a person is brought to a point of unbearable pain the soul can split. The pain causes a void in the soul where demons can enter. All that has to happen is for that person to remember the incident. This is done by a planted, subliminal reminder called a trigger. It could be a voice or a sound. The conscience of that person, when hearing that sound, freezes and goes into shock or fear. During this shock or fear the host steps in to take control of this person. This is how assassinations are carried out by the Nephilim.
The human soul is designed to host the Spirit of God. When the human soul is closed off and aimed down by over use of carnal senses it is opened to a different spirit. These are “the fallen.” Fallen in the sense of Adam and Eve when they were driven by the sense of their carnality of being born from the dust to return to the dust. This element was given to Satan saying “on your belly shall you go, and dust of the earth shall you eat all the days of your life.”
We the elect are not of “the fallen” but the resurrected. We are the spirits of just men made perfect.” This is accomplished by hosting the Holy Spirit. Christ, in John 14.21, said, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word [DNA] and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” And they did. We cohabitate with God, being reconciled to that which is from the beginning, we have the indwelling of the invisible God, His Son and His Holy Spirit in full unison.
There is no condemnation to us who follow not the flesh but the spirit — the unction of God, our inner voice. We have been raised far above all powers and principalities in heavenly places in our spirit to co-rule and reign now with Christ.
God’s word is His DNA and that DNA makes His home in us. It (He) transfigures us and makes us a suitable host for Himself. But there are other word and idea sources that embed themselves into souls of men for demonic hosting.
Demons can come and go at will in these people. (Matthew 12.45) These people believe they are expressing their own opinions, thoughts and ideas, but Satan has planted his seed in them which instigates their thoughts, behavior and words through mind control. (M. K. Ultra)
How then does Satan sow his seed, his DNA? In many ways, but the best ways are by repetitious seemingly senseless incantations delivered by music and movies. These scenarios repeated and words recited work much like a printing press indelibly etching data on the software of the mind and soul until it is deeply embedded. It becomes natural for them and suitable for hosting demons. These demons are called walk-ins because they come and go from the host, at will. Demons are subjects to the higher order of Nephilim.
Do you ever wonder why shooters come out of nowhere for mass killings? They are host souls programmed for such behavior. What about the government officials who get elected for certain promises but carry out the status quo? Many of them are unsuspecting, weak or just wicked, and the false prophesying of the media promotes them. More satanic plants and liars.
Noah’s men of renown known again are inhabiting unsuspecting souls for their end gain in order for Satan to rule the world. Satan’s lust is to become like God, his implants and offspring are in government and other high places. But these are more than just hosts.
Ephesians 6.12. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in highplaces.” This shows their focus and quest.
WHERE DO THEY COME FROM
The Book of The Revelation speaks about the opening of the bottomless pit that blocked the light so that it became darker than night, where these entities were given commands “not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only the unsanctified, who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads” whose minds are unguarded.
How then are we able to put this in terms we can relate to today? Simply put, the demonic beacon today with worldwide darkness for the saturation of souls is “Hollywood.”
Hollywood should be called wormwood because it eats the souls of humans. Hollywood’s incantations and repetitions, in the form of movies and other programming, leaves wormholes in souls for demons to infest and find rest, to embed themselves.
Wormwood is a term in scripture used for the hearts of those who turned from God. (Deuteronomy 29.18)
We find this not so holy wormwood in Hollywood. Which is where? In Los Angeles, the City of Angels — fallen angels. Here you find where the angel came down, or fell down to open up a pit of darkness to mesmerize the masses not with God’s scriptures but with not so holy scripts in movies, programming and music. Through these scripts many have been detained and lost their way.
The elect are renown (Renown of God by the renewing the mind not by Hollywood scripts but through God’s scripture for the co-habitation of God in the spirit. Romans 12.2
The fallen re-script their minds through the men of renown, unknowingly, by allowing the preoccupation of ignorant thinking and words from the recycling of fallen, wayward spirits. Ancient inhabitants begat mush head zombies for last day apocalypses. They cultivate them to eat them. Not so much their human bodies, but their human failures that produce guilt and separation from God. They never come under the blood of Christ. They have no covering or spiritual protection but are poor, blind, naked, open and exposed to demons to be used at their will.
This is why women are to be covered. For the sake of being protected from fallen angels. 1 Corinthians 11. 10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. Covered in the Spirit of God, protecting them from the spirit of Satan.
You are not your own. When Adam fell he gave his personal sovereignty to Satan. So goes the human race. Until one is reconciled to God as described in the gospel they are subject to walk-ins. If you do not have the spirit of God, that space is left open for others. Christ demanded demons to flee from certain individuals, but to some in high places He rightly called them Brood of vipers and sons of Satan.
The United States is the number one debtor nation in the world, and the United States currency is the main global currency. U.S money states, “In God We Trust.” Which God does she trust? The God of Mammon. Scripture says, “You cannot serve God and Mammon.” Money is, “the God of this age.” It is, “the root of all evil” and the place where Satan’s seat is. Satan carries out his exploits worldwide with this money.
The U.S. lost her sovereignty when the constitutional mandate for Congress to coin and regulate money was usurped in order to establish the Federal Reserve Act and empower a private group of people to regulate her money. The U.S., being saturated with debt, now imposes this debt based system upon the nations of the world.
You see nations only have to borrow money if they have zero assets and no trade. Currency, rightfully used, only represents the assets owned. It is a lie that countries need to borrow money to play in the game of world trade.
If an individual in Africa, for example, took bags of diamonds into the U.S. to sell, they would get money. However, for countries to sell over their own borders they have to borrow the cash to negotiate the trades. This is oxymoronic. But this is the way Global currencies work. This is how the people of the world are shackled to debt. This is what a fiat currency is.
Why do we have to get permission and go into debt to print our own money to conduct the transaction of trade and selling assets? The answer is you shouldn’t. At least not in God Almighty’s economy but only in Satan’s. Why then can we not just forgo the currency transaction and go back to trading assets for assets? Because that would offend the money brokers who profit off of all trading. Here is their power structure
The Federal Reserve Act of 1913
The United States Congress was responsible for coining and regulating currency as outlined by its’ Constitution. This responsibility was usurped when Congress was forced to vote on the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 during a Christmas session before they could go home for the holidays, without having proper time to read it. It was slated to be a government run program, but little did Congress know they had just empowered a small group of people with whom the U.S. would be forever indebted. Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution was abridged, outlining that Congress is, “To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures.” The yearly stipend the United States pays to this private group today is nearly 6 billion dollars.
Later, through the Bretton Woods Act of 1944, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank were created to provide consistent money for the nations of the world by being attached to the Federal Reserve’s currency called the U.S. dollar. At this time the U.S. dollar was backed by gold to give it value.
With President Nixon in 1971 the gold standard was removed from the U.S. currency in an effort to infuse all these other nations with the debt based U.S. dollar shackling them with growing debt. Just look at the global debt clocks around the world to see all the nation’s growing debt.
Global currencies are controlled by a private group of people who own the Federal Reserve, the IMF and World Bank, and are backed up by nothing but debt and paper. Burnable paper creating debt to consume the consumers. This current system must return to an asset based currency or the users will be consumed by total debt. This is the plan of this private group.
It works like this. A country’s leader asks the world bankers for a trillion dollars. The bankers say, “Do you have the paper and ink to print it?” They say, “Yes.” “Do you have the printers and the workforce”? They say, “Yes.” “Do you have the buildings and distributing methods?” The answer is yes. These bankers then say, “Okay, but you owe us compounding interest for it.” In other words, the bankers gave that country something they already had, something they didn’t have to borrow. Paper, ink, printers, workforce, the buildings and the distribution means. The bankers get ongoing, growing dividends of the currency that was just created out of thin air. Who gave them permission?
Enforcement of the Global Currency
To impose this power on other nations they use the U.S. military. This is the strong arm which this private group uses to force other governments to comply with their money schemes, or become further extorted, impoverished and war torn. Their tools are sanctions, tariffs, trade barriers, terrorism and acts of covert undeclared war. This is criminal to do but nonetheless the U.S. has her agencies. Just look at the Office of Foreign Assets Control (O.F.A.C.) and see what they do to nations that do not comply.
“And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy. And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS
OF THE EARTH.”
For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.
The Unholy Union
Before she was called “Mystery Babylon” she was bequeathed to the Lord and dressed in fine attire. She was “endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights”, but she has gone after the endowments of another called the counterfeit and the anti-christ. She gave into the delicacies that he provides. In this way he is in control, and that is why he is called “the beast”.
Fear is distrusting in God. Adam said in the garden, “I heard your voice and I was afraid.” This was the first time fear happened. God knew by Adam’s fear that a transition took place in his thinking. Adam had to be saved, and fear was just the first symptom.
It was the Apostle John who said, “He who fears has not been made perfect in love, because fear involves torment” showing how destructive fear is. And that “perfect love casts out all fear”. And for those of us who have been made perfect in love? We fear not, even of the biggest enemies and obstacles to humanity. God is bigger than these. Contrary to modern thinking, God is the one who says to the waves: go this far. And God is the one who holds the stars and galaxies on their orbits. If this were not so, we wouldn’t have the reliability of the Zodiac regularity or the consistency of the Northern star called Polaris that has been reliable as long as man has been around, way before GPS. Those who are in darkness refute this because it is to the Glory of the creator God for this regularity to confound their wisdom. But scripture says: Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10 But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
When scripture is interpretated by a fear driven mind.
It is the multiple scenarios and whole end times theories that are driven by man’s default operation of fear, being energized by man’s archenemy the devil, who knows scripture. By fear, people who are made in the image of God, give their power to that enemy by not trusting God. Satan is like “a roaring lion seeking who he may devour, experienced by the brotherhood in the world”? Of which some of us are not of this world as Christ is not. Satan in this way, detours the sheep of God wending their way through multiple theories using expired old Covenant concepts, all of which Christ fulfilled. “All the law and the prophets were till John the Baptist. Now the Kingdom is preached and all are entering”. Are you? And “of those born among women there is none greater than John the Baptist. However those who are least in the Kingdom are greater than he”. Are you? If you answered no, you don’t know the things that have been freely given to us “in Christ”. Are you?
All of the end time predictions throughout all time till now have been proven false. We see wickedness abound, but that should serve as a warning to “come out of her My people lest you partake of her sins and recieve of her judgments” because “God has not appointed us to wrath, but for obtaining the Glory of God”. And “if we judge ourselves, we shall not be judged”. And directly from the mouth of Christ “whoever believes in Me shall not go into judgment, but has past from death to life” as a product of faith and not something gifted after a supposed 2nd coming.
For those who espouse end time scenarios as just spelled out, they are blind leading the blind into a ditch.
We must learn to exercise our senses to discern between good and evil and we learn that over time.
The arch rival with God, when fully developed, is a government system He calls “a beast” because a god it is not. It is powerless to save. It is not a save all or a savior but a mimicker, a wannabe, a look alike and a deceiver. It has a mouth of a lamb, but teeth of a lion. Christ said you will know them by their fruits.
It takes on a similitude of the promises and provisions of God, but in a carnal way. So instead of dressing ourselves in God’s promises and putting on Christ one attribute at a time, these people who are governed by fear, run to the safety of governments and institutions, and in doing so pass right by the provisions from God. God said to Abraham “I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” But these seek protection elsewhere.
current system today that people run 2 out of fear for protection and in so doing this they put themselves In Harm’s Way.
Going to scripture for end times and eschatology, is like a room with no corners. You find yourself going in circles with no peace. There is no consensus from anybody on end times. It divides the flock, and disperses and dismembers the body more than any other topic. There are more denominations and more sects and Cults on this topic. That is an abuse of scripture. Scripture is given for our understanding of God, and for our transformation. As scripture says “we are being transformed into the same full image from the glory to the glory as by the spirit”. We are to renew the spirit of our mind with these truths to more clearly associate with the Living God. This is the purpose of scripture and not end times. I repeat not end times. That is a dead end road. Even as the Pharisees ask Christ when his kingdom would come, he said it does not come with (carnal) observation” so you should quit using scripture for that purpose. he And of the Pharases that did that? Christ said “do not go after them. They are the blind following the blind into the ditch. It is the gospel of fear and fear is the enemy of Faith.
When we get together and talk about all the social ills of today, and government abuse, and secret societies, we energize that God. We glorify that God. And we insult the God that provides salvation. God sent his son into the world not to destroy the world but to save it. John 3:17. When Christ prayed to the Father for us and said Father, I pray not that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from evil. But this we just cannot believe and fear another.
Paul the Apostle prayed that we would know the power that is in us — each of us individually — as those who have faith in Christ, the power God the Father showed when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him far above all powers and principalities. Paul wanted us to know this power because that’s where we can go with our tools in faith and trust in the Living God, we can be resurrected by this power in us. But in so doing, by rejecting this power that is in us we resurrect our old enemy, Satan who was destroyed at the cross.And the power of resurrection gifted to us if appropriated by fear, is in turn used to open up the bottomless pit. “Those who lead with the sword will be killed by the sword” and those who live by fear shall have the thing come upon them that they fear most.
Love motivates, fear paralyzes,
so you decide. Align yourself with the Living God through faith, or align yourself with Satan by fear. Which one is your motivator.
If we approach scripture with a fear-based mind it gives us one message. But if we approach it with the love of God we get another message. For after this day is over, after every end-time prophecy has been scoffed at, the only thing left to talk about is the Living God..
The choice is yours. The kingdom of God is at hand. Whatever is Noble whatever is just whatever is pure whatever is wholesome, think upon these things in the peace of God will be with you amen.
NKJV Genesis 15.1 The Lord came to Abraham saying “I am your Shield, your exceedingly great reward.” Throughout history Abraham is referred to as the father of faith. Abraham passes on to us the Promises given to him by the Lord.
When God gave promise to Abraham saying, “I am your Shield your exceedingly great reward,” those who believe in like manner have this promise as well.
What makes His Shield exceedingly great is that it is far superior to all the shields of this world. If God made a shield, or a force field, what could get past Him as though you could sneak up behind Him? What could penetrate or void His terms and conditions? What could negate God’s obligation to perform His word over and above Him? As if there is something or someone more powerful than God? Our faith is our only obstacle to implementing His words. You doubt His Word and seek protection elsewhere.
The term “Shield” was used because that was the common vernacular of the day. When a soldier went out to battle, it was his Shield that would protect him and ward off all the fiery darts. Even as Paul said in Ephesians 6. 16 to “put on the shield of Faith which is able to ward off all the fiery darts of the wicked.” Other Shields are not able to do this. This is what Paul was referring to. The shield of faith. This is what Abraham received when God explained it to him.
This Shield of faith is an invisible force field, able to throw off all the fiery darts of the wicked. It is able to also put us outside of harm’s reach of many other things. It is equal to our participation in our personal sanctification. Which is? To abstain and purify ourselves from the counterfiet provisions of today.
When Christ prayed to the Father in John 17.16 to keep His people from evil, the Father answered that prayer then because He always heard the Only Begotten. John 11.42
Christ defined those who were recipients of this sanctification saying, “Father these whom you have given Me are not of this world just as I am not of this world.” (John 17.14) We are distinguished from those of this world because we are cloaked with Gods word, which is eternally greater than the protectors and providers the world has. All of Gods promises are summed up in this one saying, “I will never leave you or forsake you. (Hebrews 11.42) What better protection can you get? God wants us to have full assurance and reliance in Him and on Him. He doesn’t need any help. What ever we face, God has it covered. He has it covered for the whole world. 1 John 2.1
Our Shield is our dependency in God to make good on His Word of shielding and protecting us from the evils of this world and fulfilling His word, which He does. God is faithful to His faithful to the uttermost. We are those “who follow the lamb where ever He goes”. (Revelation 14.4)
What does this all mean? Simply this, if you put on the force fields and shields of this age to provide and protect instead of Gods, you are committing spiritual adultery. Spiritual adultery sets you outside of the safety of God’s promises and His Shield of faith. Sounds crazy, but the choice is yours.You can be in God’s good hands, or in the not so good hands of a counterfeit coverage provider.
Like Christ spoke to the church of Laodicea, Revelation 3.17 “Because you say, ‘I am rich, I have become wealthy, and I have need of nothing (because you cover yourself with worldly provisions) But you do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked’ and outside of the protection of God. So it is with many professing professing faith in God today. They don’t have much to offer that differentiates themselves from the world or other religions.but having faith in Christ is not a religion it’s a new creation, so our wares and our solutions are different. as the heavens are higher than the earth so God’s ways are higher than man’s ways.We the elect are in the world but not of the world so our association is not as such.
