God as neighbor

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Eternal Day, 2 Peter 3.18

Download PDF

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

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

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

 

This ministry is the business of taking people to Gods Kingdom. The place that was before the word was spoke or the Spirit ever hoovered. Before time and matter this place still exists and always will in its eternal unchanging, never getting old glory. All things (new) are of God and in God. This is what it means to be “In Christ”. To not be “in Adam” or “in the world” And the all things are hidden “in Christ”. The old things have passed away in His word and this must be received by faith. The transition, or transformation takes place in the invisible, un-noticeable to the human eye. As it were in the blink of an eye, or a twinkling. The place where flesh cannot see but a working of the spirit. That which is flesh is flesh but this is spirit. For the time now is that we can worship the Father in spirit and truth and truth is only what remains after time and matter cease. That which was and is and is to come is already here and always has been. It is not to say; who will go up to heaven to bring it down, or who will go into the deep to bring it up? But what does the word say? It is near to you and even in your heart, the word of faith. The just lives by faith alone and the Kingdom of God is the Kingdom of faith. There is no other way to access it.

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

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

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

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

*Kind begets kind, bone of my bone

Kind begets kind and Bone of My Bone.

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

PRIVATE: A STERN WARNING FOR SUPPRESSING THE TRUTH

The Lord continually reached out to a disobedient people. He gave them warning after warning finally saying  ”if after all this you do not repent I will punish you 7 times more for your sins. We see by the time of Christ He said “Oh Jerusalem I weep for you. If you only you had known your time of visitation. Now these things are upon you. He came a thief in the night and they were desolate.

We think, how can this be? All those innocent Jews! The desolation occurred, not one stone was left upon another. Jerusalem was seized and over thrown. The Lords patience ran out and they were judged. He said “All day long I have stretched out my hands to a disobedient and contrary people”. They were left desolate, condemned, annihilated.
The Lord said “On you shall be required all the blood of the Prophets from righteous Abel to Zechariah whose blood was spilled at the alter” and even John the baptist and the blood of Christ Himself. As He said “Fill up the measure of your fathers guilt! And the words from the Jewsh populace, “His blood be upon us”. And it was
Deuteronomy 28 .20+  had been fulfilled. This is a horrific description of them killing each other and even eating their own children and being attacked by armies and wild animals. I know this is graphic and is largely unspoken of but He said do not add or take away from His words. This should be a wake up. They thought they did service to God, in the end they received the wrath of God. Woe!
You see Romans 1 says that the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness in men who suppress the truth. And that is what they did. That is Gods wrath “to the Jew first” They knew God and they suppressed the truth of God. They misrepresented Him. We read on that “they knew Gods eternal power and Godhead so they were with out excuse. They professed to be wise but became fools and turned the Glory of the incorruptible God into an image of an corruptible man”.
This was the first great woe. They thought God was a man like them. Huh? Is not Jesus a man who will come to planet earth and rule from Jerusalem? That is your first strike.
For even in Samuel’s day when the populace demanded a king like all the other nations had, what did God tell Samuel? “Heed the voice of , the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them”. They exchanged an invisible king for one thy could see. That’s right. And again Samuel addressed the people, “But you today have rejected your God, who himself saved you out of all your adversaries and tribulations and have said to Him, No, but set a king over us”. We too reject the rule and reign of Christ today because first we , meaning portions of Christianity, preach that the Christ man will be our king in a future time and we reject the notion of the invisible God being our king now as it was before Samuel. We, not knowing Him have rejected Him. We too have turned the Glory of the incorruptible invisible immortal God into a flesh and body man with our “end time” teachings.
Let’s bring up the peoples response  when Moses was sent to rectify the covenant in Horeb. Ex 24.7 All that the Lord has said we will do it” This same people did not want to relate to God and also said, Moses you deal with Him we don’t want to. They gave away their birth right. They were glad to have someone else talk to God for them and rejected the blessings of God Himself. Maybe like today. With our books and other peoples opinions about God online. We have exchanged a personal relationship with God the same way they did. “You speak to the scary voice for us. He can speak to the hand”.
Here is where we are today. The truth is truncated because everyone receives knowledge of God from each other. They have to verify things with another mans testimony. One says I am from Paul or Apollos, or maybe a Baptist or Evangelical and this teacher or that. You are all acting like silly men with your own private club. Don’t you know there is one body? But what does Christ say? John 2.23-25+ 5.31-36 The people saw the signs that He did and Believed in Him and it say’s, “Jesus did not commit himself to them because He knew all men” he had no need for man to testify of Him.
It is easy to think that if they use the name Jesus they must be good but maybe they preach another Jesus.
From Paul in Galatians, The gospel I preach to you is not by man, for I did not receive it from man nor was I taught it but it came by revelation of Christ. In other words first hand.
Today especially with end times they follow each other from one supposed prophesy to another. Changing doctrines with each new world event, having no truth but strong opinions. Empty of faith profiting on these theories no matter how many times they change their opinion they repent not. Vipers hatching eggs of yet more vain theories deceiving and being deceived. These are the blemishes in your love feasts. They do not enter the Kingdom because for them it is later and they keep distracted others who are trying.
Hebrews 10 puts out a stern warning drawing a comparison from those who rejected Christ back then and now. “anyone who rejected Moses’ law dies with out mercy. Of how much worse punishment do you suppose he will be who thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing. For we know Him who said “vengeance is mine” and again “the Lord will judge His people” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
If we think God will put up with our flippant use of His name putting it on earthly things and on every wind of change, we are mistaken. We are using His name in vain. If we do not take these things upon ourselves and judge ourselves, we will be judged, for judgment starts at the house of God. 1st Peter 4.17
Christ spoke very firm to the corrupt church in The Revelation of Jesus Christ with these words. “I gave her time to repent” and I will cast her into a sick bed and all those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation unless they repent of their deeds.
We need to get back to basics and back to the message preached by John the baptist, Christ, then those who heard. That is “repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand”. That is as true today and every day as the day it was first spoken. When was the last time you heard that?
If you are preaching or believing in a kingdom of another day you do not have the King of Kings from the scriptures.
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and Glory forever and ever. Amen
and
To the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and the Lord of lords who alone has immortality dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.

PRIVATE: ECCLESIASTICUS EXCERPTS

  1.1 All wisdom cometh from the Lord, and is with him for ever. 2 Who can number the sand of the sea, and the drops of rain, and the days of eternity? 3 Who can find out the height of heaven, and the breadth of the earth, and the deep, and wisdom? 4 Wisdom hath been created before all things, and the understanding of prudence from everlasting. 5 The word of God most high is the fountain of wisdom; and her ways are everlasting commandments. 6 To whom hath the root of wisdom been revealed? or who hath known her wise counsels? 7 Unto whom hath the knowledge of wisdom been made manifest? and who hath understood her great experience? 8 There is one wise and greatly to be feared, the Lord sitting upon his throne. 9 He created her, and saw her, and numbered her, and poured her out upon all his works. 10 She is with all flesh according to his gift, and he hath given her to them that love him. 11 The fear of the Lord is honour, and glory, and gladness, and a crown of rejoicing. 12 The fear of the Lord maketh a merry heart, and giveth joy, and gladness, and a long life. 13 Whoso feareth the Lord, it shall go well with him at the last, and he shall find favour in the day of his death. 14 To fear the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and it was created with the faithful in the womb. 15 She hath built an everlasting foundation with men, and she shall continue with their seed. 16 To fear the Lord is fulness of wisdom, and filleth men with her fruits.   4.11 Wisdom exalteth her children, and layeth hold of them that seek her. 12 He that loveth her loveth life; and they that seek to her early shall be filled with joy. 13 He that holdeth her fast shall inherit glory; and wheresoever she entereth, the Lord will bless. 14 They that serve her shall minister to the Holy One: and them that love her the Lord doth love. 15 Whoso giveth ear unto her shall judge the nations: and he that attendeth unto her shall dwell securely. 16 If a man commit himself unto her, he shall inherit her; and his generation shall hold her in possession. 17 For at the first she will walk with him by crooked ways, and bring fear and dread upon him, and torment him with her discipline, until she may trust his soul, and try him by her laws. 18 Then will she return the straight way unto him, and comfort him, and shew him her secrets.   6.18 My son, gather instruction from thy youth up: so shalt thou find wisdom till thine old age. 19 Come unto her as one that ploweth and soweth, and wait for her good fruits: for thou shalt not toil much in labouring about her, but thou shalt eat of her fruits right soon. 20 She is very unpleasant to the unlearned: he that is without understanding will not remain with her. 21 She will lie upon him as a mighty stone of trial; and he will cast her from him ere it be long. 22 For wisdom is according to her name, and she is not manifest unto many. 23 Give ear, my son, receive my advice, and refuse not my counsel, 24 And put thy feet into her fetters, and thy neck into her chain. 25 Bow down thy shoulder, and bear her, and be not grieved with her bonds. 26 Come unto her with thy whole heart, and keep her ways with all thy power. 27 Search, and seek, and she shall be made known unto thee: and when thou hast got hold of her, let her not go. 28 For at the last thou shalt find her rest, and that shall be turned to thy joy. 29 Then shall her fetters be a strong defence for thee, and her chains a robe of glory. 30 For there is a golden ornament upon her, and her bands are purple lace. 31 Thou shalt put her on as a robe of honour, and shalt put her about thee as a crown of joy.   14.20 Blessed is the man that doth meditate good things in wisdom, and that reasoneth of holy things by his understanding. ing. 21 He that considereth her ways in his heart shall also have understanding in her secrets. 22 Go after her as one that traceth, and lie in wait in her ways. 23 He that prieth in at her windows shall also hearken at her doors. 24 He that doth lodge near her house shall also fasten a pin in her walls. 25 He shall pitch his tent nigh unto her, and shall lodge in a lodging where good things are. 26 He shall set his children under her shelter, and shall lodge under her branches. 27 By her he shall be covered from heat, and in her glory shall he dwell. 15.1 He that feareth the Lord will do good, and he that hath the knowledge of the law shall obtain her. 2 And as a mother shall she meet him, and receive him as a wife married of a virgin. 3 With the bread of understanding shall she feed him, and give him the water of wisdom to drink. 4 He shall be stayed upon her, and shall not be moved; and shall rely upon her, and shall not be confounded. 5 She shall exalt him above his neighbours, and in the midst of the congregation shall she open his mouth. 6 He shall find joy and a crown of gladness, and she shall cause him to inherit an everlasting name.       24.1 Wisdom shall praise herself, and shall glory in the midst of her people. 2 In the congregation of the most High shall she open her mouth, and triumph before his power. 3 I came out of the mouth of the most High, and covered the earth as a cloud. 4 I dwelt in high places, and my throne is in a cloudy pillar. 5 I alone compassed the circuit of heaven, and walked in the bottom of the deep. 6 In the waves of the sea and in all the earth, and in every people and nation, I got a possession. 7 With all these I sought rest: and in whose inheritance shall I abide? 8 So the Creator of all things gave me a commandment, and he that made me caused my tabernacle to rest, and said, Let thy dwelling be in Jacob, and thine inheritance in Israel. 9 He created me from the beginning before the world, and I shall never fail. 10 In the holy tabernacle I served before him; and so was I established in Sion. 11 Likewise in the beloved city he gave me rest, and in Jerusalem was my power. 12 And I took root in an honourable people, even in the portion of the Lord’s inheritance. 13 I was exalted like a cedar in Libanus, and as a cypress tree upon the mountains of Hermon. 14 I was exalted like a palm tree in En-gaddi, and as a rose plant in Jericho, as a fair olive tree in a pleasant field, and grew up as a plane tree by the water. 15 I gave a sweet smell like cinnamon and aspalathus, and I yielded a pleasant odour like the best myrrh, as galbanum, and onyx, and sweet storax, and as the fume of frankincense in the tabernacle. 16 As the turpentine tree I stretched out my branches, and my branches are the branches of honour and grace. 17 As the vine brought I forth pleasant savour, and my flowers are the fruit of honour and riches. 18 I am the mother of fair love, and fear, and knowledge, and holy hope: I therefore, being eternal, am given to all my children which are named of him. 19 Come unto me, all ye that be desirous of me, and fill yourselves with my fruits. 20 For my memorial is sweeter than honey, and mine inheritance than the honeycomb. 21 They that eat me shall yet be hungry, and they that drink me shall yet be thirsty. 22 He that obeyeth me shall never be confounded, and they that work by me shall not do amiss. 23 All these things are the book of the covenant of the most high God, even the law which Moses commanded for an heritage unto the congregations of Jacob. 24 Faint not to be strong in the Lord; that he may confirm you, cleave unto him: for the Lord Almighty is God alone, and beside him there is no other Saviour. 25 He filleth all things with his wisdom, as Phison and as Tigris in the time of the new fruits. 26 He maketh the understanding to abound like Euphrates, and as Jordan in the time of the harvest. 27 He maketh the doctrine of knowledge appear as the light, and as Geon in the time of vintage. 28 The first man knew her not perfectly: no more shall the last find her out.     13 When I was yet young, or ever I went abroad, I desired wisdom openly in my prayer. 14 I prayed for her before the temple, and will seek her out even to the end. 15 Even from the flower till the grape was ripe hath my heart delighted in her: my foot went the right way, from my youth up sought I after her. 16 I bowed down mine ear a little, and received her, and gat much learning. 17 I profited therein, therefore will I ascribe glory unto him that giveth me wisdom. 18 For I purposed to do after her, and earnestly I followed that which is good; so shall I not be confounded. 19 My soul hath wrestled with her, and in my doings I was exact: I stretched forth my hands to the heaven above, and bewailed my ignorances of her. 20 I directed my soul unto her, and I found her in pureness: I have had my heart joined with her from the beginning, therefore shall I not be foresaken. 21 My heart was troubled in seeking her: therefore have I gotten a good possession. 22 The Lord hath given me a tongue for my reward, and I will praise him therewith. 23 Draw near unto me, ye unlearned, and dwell in the house of learning. 24 Wherefore are ye slow, and what say ye to these things, seeing your souls are very thirsty? 25 I opened my mouth, and said, Buy her for yourselves without money. 26 Put your neck under the yoke, and let your soul receive instruction: she is hard at hand to find. 27 Behold with your eyes, how that I have but little labour, and have gotten unto me much rest. 28 Get learning with a great sum of money, and get much gold by her.   51.13 When I was yet young, or ever I went abroad, I desired wisdom openly in my prayer. 14 I prayed for her before the temple, and will seek her out even to the end. 15 Even from the flower till the grape was ripe hath my heart delighted in her: my foot went the right way, from my youth up sought I after her. 16 I bowed down mine ear a little, and received her, and gat much learning. 17 I profited therein, therefore will I ascribe glory unto him that giveth me wisdom. 18 For I purposed to do after her, and earnestly I followed that which is good; so shall I not be confounded. 19 My soul hath wrestled with her, and in my doings I was exact: I stretched forth my hands to the heaven above, and bewailed my ignorances of her. 20 I directed my soul unto her, and I found her in pureness: I have had my heart joined with her from the beginning, therefore shall I not be foresaken. 21 My heart was troubled in seeking her: therefore have I gotten a good possession. 22 The Lord hath given me a tongue for my reward, and I will praise him therewith. 23 Draw near unto me, ye unlearned, and dwell in the house of learning. 24 Wherefore are ye slow, and what say ye to these things, seeing your souls are very thirsty?

THE NEW CREATION MYSTERY REVEALED PART 4. HEAVENLY JERUSALEM

It has been given to us to know the interpretation of the things God has spoken for “we have the mind of Christ”. There is a one to one correlation from the physical to the invisible realities. All the pictures and patterns with all the physical representations have their invisible counterpart. After we understand this we no longer need the visible.

Paul wrote how the law was our tutor but after faith has come we no longer need a tutor. Or as he says “when I become a man I put away childish things. This is the purpose of all the law and the feasts, to learn the spiritual counter part. The everlasting realities of Gods kingdom. Which is “at hand”.
So keeping this truth in mind and appropriating principles from the book of Hebrews like “He takes away the first to establish the second” and “the Holy Spirit thus indicating that the way into the Holiest was not yet manifest while the first one was standing”. This was speaking of the temple. An earthly one being replaced by an invisible one.
Why then would it be strange that Jerusalem is an eternal non time dimensional reality? Doesn’t the “kingdom at hand” have a city too?  The same principle as with the tabernacle. As long as the first one remains there is no access to the second. Our understanding is veiled from the eternal as long as a physical one still exists in our understanding. This is the law of sowing and reaping. Sown corruptible, raise spiritual.
The writer of Hebrews meant nothing short of this when he wrote “For you have come to Mt Zion, to the city of the living God, to the Heavenly Jerusalem, to the general assemble and church of the firstborn, to the spirits of just men made perfect”. He was not talking about a city on earth.
Earthly Jerusalem being sown corruptible to be raised incorruptible by faith, was pictured at Pentecost in Jerusalem. In a specific city, on a specific day,to a specific people who spoke a specific language, and whoosh! The Holy Spirit descended in power and shattered the specifics. Paul referred to the Jerusalem on earth as “Hagar which corresponds to Jerusalem which is in bondage”  bound to specifics.  The spiritual counterpart in the heavens is available without the specifics to any language, any where, anytime, to every body. To the gentiles in any place two or more are gathered. As Paul says of the spiritual Jerusalem  is free, the mother of us all. This was his living reality as it should be ours if we are able to receive it.
The 30 plus times Jerusalem of old was attacked and taken was to sow it corruptible and raise it incorruptible in the understanding of each one of those generations. They were all spiritual harvest’s into the ever ready always present kingdom of God, finished before the foundations of the world.
Ezekiel 11.16
16 Therefore say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Although I have cast them far off among the Gentiles, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet I shall be a little sanctuary for them in the countries where they have gone.”
So Pentecost wasn’t the first time this phenomena happened but the last as far as the physical goes. “He takes away the first to establish the second.
So one other point to consider about the current reality of Heavenly Jerusalem. Earthly Jerusalem in the Old testament was referred to as female. She was the mother the comforter and the nourisher. She was the widow. This was the wife of God in their understanding. And from Romans 7 of the women who’s husband must die to marry another, so too heavenly Jerusalem cannot exist without a death.
From John 4 “the hour is coming and now is when you will neither in Samaria nor in Jerusalem worship the Father. For God is spirit and He is truth and He seeks such to worship Him”  So we being “in Christ” “in the spirit” are in the city that has no earthly specifics or physical features.
You see our inheritance is Him. We are joint heirs of the eternal pre-existence which is God himself. Anything eternal is another aspect of Himself. The book of “The Revelation of Jesus Christ” culminates with the “revealing” or the “unveiling” of the city being an aspect of Jesus Christ to be unveiled.
This city is the one who is always hidden in Christ. As Peter instructs the women to let their adorning be the “hidden person of the heart”. If we are hidden in Him we see her who is Christs hidden person of the heart. And as John speaks of the Holy Spirit “whom the world cannot see for it neither sees her or knows her.
I will stop here but there is plenty more. I discuss this further in the series of articles under “The Mystery of The New Creation Revealed”.
Blessings

 

THE NEW CREATION MYSTERY REVEALED PART 3 THE TIMELESS, ETERNAL GIFT

We have already talked about the “Who” in part one and the “where” in part two. Now lets talk about the “when”.

The modern view is sequentially  laid out on a timeline to be fulfilled on certain days by certain events that would be experienced with the Adamic nature and looking for another day for the Christ to finish His work of salvation but lets hold that up to all of scripture.
Jesus the man said a lot of things that do not fit the time dispense theory commonly used like when the Jewish leaders were claiming to be from Abraham. Jesus wraps up His discourse with them by saying “Abraham rejoiced to see My day and he saw it and was glad”. What day is that? The “day of the Lord”. This to many is an outlandish statement but bear with me and you will see more scriptures open up to you. The purpose is to show a sequence but not one bound by emc=square big bang time and matter.
The day of Pentecost came and the Holy Spirit was given for this could not happen until Christ returned to the father and many things He spake to the disciples that they remembered after Christ was glorified. They were instructed to keep silent on some things until after He was glorified. And the scriptures say “Now the son of man is Glorified and God is Glorified in Him. As God is Glorified in Him, He will Glorify the son immediately”. You see all power from heaven and earth were invested in Christ on earth.
The Son must be Glorified in all power to move forward in the Spirit. The hour is coming and now is (depending where you are in the sequence) when you will not on this mountain nor in (earthly) Jerusalem worship the Father. For the Father is Spirit and truth and is seeking such to worship Him. Maybe you. And if the Son is not in all power and authority then there is yet another work of the Jesus man then salvation is later but Glory is the trophy of the finish.
We need to ask “who is our Jesus”? Mary wanted to worship Christ when He rose from the dead at the time the tomb was empty and He said “do not cling to me for I have not ascended to the Father”. I would like to point out here that many do not distinguish between the resurrection from the dead and the ascension into heaven. For this reason the ascension is later but scripture says that He made us sit down in the heavenly’s.
A spiritual truth is that you can only be as developed as your teacher and if your teacher is a man, then you shall be a good man but if you are not beholding the fully Glorified Christ in the mirror you are not receiving the full gift. Even as the disciples said when they saw Christ at the transfiguration. Why do the scribes say Elijah must come first? Well he does come Elijah has already come if you are able to receive it. Well what does that mean? If we are not able we do not receive it? Yes! Precisely! If you are not able to receive things by faith you can’t have it! Bingo!
This is the whole point of faith and how to receive the eternal, timeless gift that is in Christ. All must enter through faith. If you see it, it is not faith for faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. You get that? Proof of the invisible. You see the Jewish people of that day were looking for a physical, visible kingdom with the God man sitting on a throne and this was their condemnation. “Oh Jerusalem if you would have only known this, your hour of visitation, but now these things are coming upon you!” What a sad reality. They missed it because they would not receive it by faith. What about us?
The book of Hebrews describes this timeless gift we are talking about and the Lord says “so I swore in my wrath they shall not enter my rest, although the works were finished from the foundation of the world”. So here we are in modern day Christianity speaking of another day like many have done throughout time. The scripture goes on to say “Since there remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because they lacked faith. For the Gospel message was preached to us as well as them but the word they heard did not profit them not being mixed with faith. But we who have believed do enter that rest.”
Now here is the thing. The works were done the 6th day. All of the trees that were yet to grow were created, all the seed of every man was already in Adam, every detail was complete the 6th day and just needed to be played out. Even as scripture says that they will look upon the lamb slain from the foundation of the world. This is the place we are invited to now.
This is the gospel message. (Hebrews 4.2) The timeless gift. Enter His realm, His Rest.

 

THE NEW CREATION MYSTERY EXPLAINED PT 2

The “New Creation” is not new in the sense of being just made. It is new in the sense of never getting old. In this place time as we know it has no value or effect. For time is a measurement of the “getting old creation”. The one of emc=square. Of the big bang of time and matter.

The New Creation is also young for it can never age. It never lacks luster or fades. It never needs repaired or painted. It is not new in the way we perceive new in having never been before. In a similar sense we could call our creation old since that day of sin it began to decay corrode and erosion began when Adam was told “in that day you shall surely die. Death had become.
This day which has no end also has no beginning. It as is not getting older or decrepit, it is not getting younger or infantile. It just is and always is perfect. That which was and is and is to come. It is always perfect. It has been and will be always perfect, un-taintable by humanity. This is the paradise of God. Everyday is the grand opening, the feast, the main event, the wedding. The gospel message and all it’s teachings are to bring us there. Which is the day which has no night. It is forever young, in eternal unfading glory. The place of our calling.
Paul talks about this when he says “For our outward man is perishing, yet our inward man is renewed day after day”. it is forever new. All the focus and teachings of scripture define this place as not a future reality, but current for those born of God who walk according to the Spirit. Those who “since you are resurrected with Christ set your mind on the things that are above”.  ”He has raised us up and made us sit together with Him in heavenly places in Christ.
So then we who are in the Spirit are in this New Creation. Not that it was created but it is a creation in the sense that it has specific features having order and design. But as it has no end and no beginning, having always existed in God the Father because it is God the Father. The not-created creation. As Christ said when asked of His Kingdom. “It is not of this world”, not of emc=square big bang time and matter. Whatever is eternal is God. All things have been given to the Son and we are joint heirs with Him, of the eternal life that was with the Father and manifested in the Son. He who has the Son has this life, this always New Creation.

ANSWER OF A GOOD CONSCIENCE 1 PETER 3.21

Peter was speaking of the baptism in chapter 3 he says. there is also an antitype that saves us namely baptism. not the removal of the filth of the flesh but an answer of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. who has ascended into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.

Here is a remarkable truth. It is not necessary for God to need our bodies out of the way to get on with us in a relationship like He had with Adam and Eve. It is the marred conscience that is in the way. He requires us to have a good conscience and this is the gift we get by identifying with Christ on the cross. But we don’t stay at the cross. We move on as God allows.

1 Peter 4.1 Therefor since Christ suffered in the flesh arm yourself with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin.

It does not say arm your body, or kill your body but arm your mind. It is here we find the gift for Christ by the grace of God has tasted death for every man, especially those who believe. The question then is if we arm our mind what happens to the sin? Isn’t God watching that? Having put off the flesh by faith we have to redefine “sin”.

In Zach 3 we see Joshua the high priest standing before God and Satan accusing him. The Lord rebuked Satan, then says of Joshua ”Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?” The Lord instructed those who stood by to remove the filthy garments and to cloth him in rich robes.

We also are a brand plucked from the fire and furnished with rich robes, the righteousness of Christ by faith, and if our conscience or Satan accuse us we have a good answer for a clean conscience. Look at the cross. The glorious reality of this truth is this. We no longer keep track of sin in the old fashion. God doesn’t. Blessed is the man in whom the Lord does not impute sin. This imputation is the same as an accountant who keeps tabs of debt. Maybe like your credit card monthly bill. But we open up our spiritual billing and the account always reads “paid in full”

So then here is how we define sin now as it pertains to the clean conscience, the new man. In Romans 14 Paul was talking about our freedoms when it comes to what day to worship, what foods to eat, what to drink and in general what is our mind set now that we are past sin according to law. Verse 22 do you have faith? And, Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves. But he who doubts is condemned if he eats because he does not eat of faith, (and here is the key) for whatever is not of faith is sin.

Sin relates now to faith being actions in the mind as it pertains to the leading of God, verses the body. If we understand as it says in Hebrews 11.6 that without faith it is impossible to please God, we learn that it is more important to follow His Spirit then to go back to law. We know if an external law helped, Christ would not have gone to the cross. This then is the struggle of the flesh, we would rather have a list of “thou shalt not’s” on the refrigerator than to follow the spirit. Then to follow the unction of the Spirit.

So then when Satan, ourselves or anybody accuses us and tries to put us on the defense and throw our minds into a whirlwind of apologizing and making excuses, and confessing we have an answer of a good conscience. This becomes the act of faith that pleases God. With Joshua the Lord had the sin removed and had him robed in fine linen but we do that by faith and this pleases God.

I do not taint my relationship with the Father by dwelling on sin in the flesh. It is an insult to the Spirit of grace. The sin factor is gone in the spirit, in the heavens and in our minds if our mind is set on the Spirit, the things that are above This pleases God. We are unobstructed and unhindered., without excuse to relate to God. Let nothing come between you and that. When we hear the heavenly voice we make the necessary adjustments in our walk

Back to 1 Peter we read that Satan is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour whom resist steadfast in the faith,  knowing that the same is being experienced by your brotherhood in the world. Here is the key. Are we in Christ or in the world? If we succumb to the accusations like Joshua, we have to ask ourselves “are we in the flesh or in faith”. For if you are in the flesh, you are in the world where Satan is active. If you are in the faith Satan’s words fall on deaf ears. Gods not listening, He is not imputing. Why are we.

This is where we appropriate our faith and give God the Glory. Instead of apologizing for yet another short coming on our part, bless God because he paved the way once for all.This is faith and this pleases God. He really is not happy with continual apologies and confessions as though that keeps us clean like the continual sacrifices of old. He didn’t like that either. But he likes an answer of a clear conscience washed by the blood of the lamb. The accuser of the brethren is cast down. We are accounted as seated with Him in heavenly places. Far above all powers and principalities. The roaring lion becomes  toothless road kill .

Here are a couple other verses that expand on this
Heb 10.1-22 with sin gone by faith, another act of faith is to enter the holiest of all by the blood of Christ.
John 17.15 Christ prayed not that we would be taken out of the world but that we would be protected from evil.
1 John 2.12-14 are the words that “you have overcome the wicked one.

My work of faith is to follow the Holy Spirit. I do not glorify Satan for any of his mischievousness for he is limited to what the Lord allows him. Like the serpent who was a staff in Moses hand so is Satan in the hand of Christ, all power and authority been given to Him.  It is when I test the boundaries of the promise. To be in Christ by faith or in the world. If I fill myself with the spirit and not the world satan stands no chance.

This obviously does not apply to murderers, fornicators and such. On gray area items Paul said. “I am free to do all things, I will not be subject to the power of them.  If you can’t control  it you may be giving room to the enemy.
Accept the gift of a clear conscience and explore the greater realities in Christ.

THE NEW CREATION MYSTERY EXPLAINED PART1

God created man in His image male and female. He chose to display His hidden attributes in these two as they came together. “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his bride”.

We know from the creation account that God spoke. And when God spoke His word came forth. And that when God spoke His breath/Spirit came forth. The Father being the source, then the Son and Spirit. “The Spirit brooded over the face of the waters”. Not that one was lessor or greater but different in purpose, being equally God with all the attributes, displaying complimentary characteristics.

It was said of Christ that he “declared the Father”. He said “if you have seen me you have seen the Father”. Then it was necessary that He was also the fullness of the Father, His completeness, as scripture says, and that if He was the “fullness of the Father” He had to be “male and female made He them”.

For Christ to appropriately display the fullness of God, and He did for “in Him dwelleth the fullness of the God head body”, He had to display the same attributes as the Father before it was said He made male and female to display His likeness, before this split.

Well how did Christ on earth do this? Well the first creation started with the Word and the Spirit leaving the mouth of God, and they split as they departed. The Word creates, the Spirit incubates. And this is what happens inside us when we receive them. The new creation is when the Word and the Spirit become one again. You catch a glimpse of this in all other unions or marriages. We call this the procreation of a species. The two becoming one and begetting according to their own likeness, be it a mammal or a fish or a reptile. You get the picture.

In heavenly terms this is what is referred to as “the Wedding banquet” that we are invited to. It is the coming together to be one of the Holy Word and the Holy Spirit, the true union. And this has to take place before there are any offspring. This is the union that takes place in the heart of believers when they accept Christ.

So how and when did Christ on earth display the Father in the two, both male and female? It was at His baptism that Christ received the Holy Spirit, thereby “fulfilling all righteousness”. It was at that time the Father said “this is my beloved Son in Him I am well pleased”. He could only be pleased if the Son were a true “chip off the ol block”, and correctly displayed who He was before the beginning, before His Word and Spirit went forth.

The first creation started with the split. God divided light and dark. earth and sky, land from water, etc. But more importantly when the Word and the Spirit come back together, being united, or wed, or married, this then is the union of the new creation. “For my Word will not return to me void but shall accomplish all that I desire”. Which is? You shall go out (birthed) with joy, you shall be led forth with peace”. And who is the you in that passage? It is those born of that union, the union of the Word and Spirit, reunited to procreate true images of that union born in His likeness, in His fullness. We “receive the en-grafted Word”, and are “begotten by the word of truth to be a kind (kind begets kind) of first fruits of His creation”. This being the “male and female made He them in His likeness”. And from the book of John, that which is born of the flesh is flesh, that which is born of the Spirit is spirit, you must be born again. This is pretty radical if you can grasp what I am saying.

So back to Christ’s baptism for a fuller explanation. The Holy Spirit descended upon Him in bodily form like a dove and remained upon Him to never depart, the Spirit given to the Son without measure,to never be divided or split again.

John the “Baptizer” knew this, and knew this was his purpose. “Make straight paths the way of the Lord”. They grew up together and did not know this until that glorious moment. “I did not know him but upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon, THIS IS HE!”. And I have seen and testify that truly this is the Son of God.

But it doesn’t stop here. John made even a more radical remark when his disciples were asking about this Christ man. They asked “who is He whom you testified of back at the Jordan? John then replied in present tense. Meaning then! Not later. He said “He who Has the Bride is the Bridegroom, but the friend (John meaning himself) of the Bridegroom, who stands and hears Him, rejoices greatly because of the Bridegrooms voice. That is why this joy of mine is full. And from the Greek, “THEY must increase but I must decrease, THEY who come from above are above all”. That is the two in one, the Word and the Spirit. As Christ said to Nicodemus “WE speak what WE know and testify what WE have see and you do not receive OUR testimony”. Do you?

If you are still here, without any further adieu, may I introduce to you the Bride and Groom. The Word and the Spirit. For John did not talk about THEM as engaged, or as though THEY would be married on a future date, or the soon to be or THEY would have been called fiance’. He said “He who has the Bride is the Bridegroom”. This is an introduction only for the newly weds and completely in-appropriate for the un-wed couple. Stay with me for there is more.

The baptism of Christ was necessary to “fulfill all righteousness”. To accomplish the full task and purpose of the Son on earth. To Accomplish all! For the Word and the Spirit to come together to have offspring. That is those born of Word and Spirit. Which is us! If you believe. And if this is not the truth, and the wedding has not taken place, then those who claim to be born again are born out of wed lock. Then we would all be born from pre-marriage fornication, we would be bastards.

If you are waiting to see a future wedding you are walking by sight using the reason of your carnal mind as it relates to the physical senses. For He is the one who calls things that don’t exist as though they do, because they really do where it counts. In Spirit and truth. This is a message for those who are called out, which comes from the Greek word Eklisia, the word translated Church. The called out of the world. To be be called into. And the into is “In Christ”. This mystery and many more are “in Him”. Which is where all the hidden treasures of God are at, be it a mystery or a revelation,be it the Spirit or the body. None of these are realities to the human senses. Kind begets kind and kind associates with kind and ye must be born of the spirit. If you have stayed with me this far you are of this kind. If this is the first time you have seen and accepted this. Welcome home.

We will explore this new creation in greater depth. What is the new creation? For those who believe, it is you. It is Him. It is us as we put Him on. It Is now, He is now, the Kingdom of God is at hand! The King, the Queen, the City, and His government. If this was not true you would have a King without a kingdom. And what is a King without a kingdom? What is a judge without a court? What is a husband without a wife? He is or He isn’t. Check mate. The true King is always standing.

Revelation 21.9 “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”[g]10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy[h]Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God.” 

Christ in John 3 said of Himself, “We speak what We know and We testify what We have seen.” He spoke of himself as being plural, which is not surprising for He is the same one who said, “Let Us make man in Our likeness.”

When John wrote this, he specifically used the Greek word “Ekeinos.” Ekeinos means “they” and “them”, and not he or him, when talking about Christ, but the English translators interpreted Ekeinos into “he” and “him,” a single person. The impact of that misinterpretation in what John was trying to convey by choosing the word “ekeinos” is lost. John was speaking of the fullness of the Godhead being a plurality and being present in Christ; just as Christ said, “It is the Father that does the works in Me,” “I and the father are one,” and “He who has seen me has seen the father.” Jesus is this plurality. John called Him “They” and “Them” not He and Him in certain text.
The plurality of Adam and Eve, the Crown of creation.
Going back to the beginning of creation and on the 6th and final day, we read,  “27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created Them.” God made them a plurality in one body. Adam was whole. Adam had not entered his deep sleep to be halved into male and female yet.
It is in the first words about Adam that; God made him both male and female when He created “them.” And God said let “them” have dominion. And God blessed “them.” They also were a plurality as is the Godhead. They were Ekeinos. Why? Because Adam had Eve (the rib) still inside him when the Lord called Adam “them,” just like John called Christ “them.” They were a plurality in one body. His wife was in him. How do we know Christ’s Bride was in Him?
God told John the baptizer, “Upon whom you see My Holy Spirit land upon and remain, this is My only begotten Son!” Christ is the true likeness of God who replaced Adam. When the Holy Spirit descended “in bodily form” like a carbon copy, she fit inside Him (Christ) perfectly. Like two puzzle pieces fit together, the two coming together made one  whole being in the image of God — both male and female.
This concept is what marriages and weddings portray.  “For this reason shall they leave father and mother and the two shall become one.”
To fulfill this, “The (Female) Holy Spirit descended like a dove and “remained upon Him.” The Word of God and the Spirit of God became one, the halves were fitted, they were united. They were Married at Christ’s baptism.
The split that started with the first Adam, was mended in the last Adam – Christ (1 Corinthians 15.45).
This is why the true association for us who are “born from above,” of things brought to us through revelation through the Holy Spirit, is Christ and not Adam. This is what constitutes the new creation. We are offspring of a different set of parents. This is what it means to be “in Christ” and in the Family of God. Why? Because Ekeinos is in us. His Spirit bearing witness with our spirit and She is the same Spirit.
It is to be born again into Christ with joy  and not coming out crying with those like of Eve.
It was at Christ’s baptism, and only then, that the heavenly Father could say, “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” Why then and only then? Because for the first time since the fall in Eden, a man was whole and not halved, like Adam and Eve. Christ was not split into male and female. Christ’s counterpart was in him; holy, complete, male and female.
For the Father to be pleased in the Son, the Son had to be like the Father. Whole and complete, male and female, into the image of God without splits, tears, fractures or missing pieces.
Christ could not of been the “well pleased” of the Father if He were only half His image being male only, without female. When the Holy Spirit descended like a dove to remain upon Him, the image of God was complete for the Father to be pleased. The Son had to have all the features  that were unique to the Father .
 Without any further ado  let us introduce to you the Bride and the Groom  that all others mimic and model. The beloved Son and His Bride the Holy Spirit come down from God of Heaven.
In order for God to make man in His image He had to incorporate all the male and female attributes that are Holy, because God has every attribute that is wholesome and that makes a man and a woman individually unique. Why? Because these He has inside Himself, or He would not have said, “Let us make man in our image and likeness, male and female.” The female would have been left out, but the feminine is a pre-created eternal entity, being as pre-existent as is the male in Christ. You cannot have one without the other.
Christ’s Helper and Comforter is the 3rd person of the Godhead called the Holy Spirit . Christ, at His baptism, received His counterpart in Himself to not be exposed. She is not to be seen. They were not naked like Adam and  Eve, his rib. Christ had nothing to be ashamed about. They needed no fig leaf. Instead of Shame there is blinding Glory that prevails. Just ask Paul. (Acts 26.13)
John the Baptist confirmed this saying of Christ, John 3.29 He who has (past tense) the bride is the bridegroom; (Note: there is no reference to a fiance, and the term bridegroom is inappropriate for an unmarried man) but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears them, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. They must increase but I must decrease.”
This was John’s purpose in life. John was more than a spectator at the wedding, He was “the friend.” He was the best man and the carnal witness to testify to us that “the Groom has the Bride.” John’s mission was accomplished, and we testify to what we’ve heard and what we have seen.
Welcome to Christ’s Wedding Banquet…if you are able to receive it. Read Matthew 22
So God had said, “Let us make make man in Our likeness.” And God did, but later He took the rib out and Adam called her Eve. They portrayed the Heavenly, invisible Bride and Groom. The Bride and Groom were turned inside out in Adam and Eve for us to learn and understand things about the always invisible Godhead.
The word revelation means to make known.  The revelation regarding Adam and his rib is about Christ and His Bride, but in contrast. A finite to clarify some things of the infinite. Eve was exposed and made visible, but Christ’s Bride will never be displayed with things that can be experienced with the flesh. This is why Paul said, “Flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom.” She “comes down of God from heaven.” That is why She is described as, “like a transparent glass,” “like a crystal,” “like a precious stone,” “something like the structure of a city,” and such. Something like, but eternally better than any construct of time and matter.
These are only common to the carnal senses and used to make comparisons. This is why one must see and hear with the heart to understand the things of God. They must be spiritually discerned. The carnal is used to make the invisible understandable.
Christ said, “The volume of the book is written of Me, I have come to take away the first to establish the second.” And He did. He reformed humanity in this way in order for as many of those who would put off their old nature to take on His new nature. This is the spiritual unveiling of things that are eternal, immortal and invisible.
This is food for us the elect who are born again anew, compositionally different from the old man. Even when God said, “Let Us…” He was showing Himself to be a plurality with things like we experience on earth but different. (Revelation 21-22 and Ezekiel 40+)
In truth, God is more aptly defined as “They” and “Them,” of male and female and not “He” and “Him.” Him and Her come from a split view. This is why the mandate was said from the beginning “24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh”.”Why?  To mend that tear, and to show the inner workings of the spirit through love.
So for us, the elect who have crossed over, having confirmed our vows at baptism, having been buried in the likeness of Christ’s death, to be raised in newness of life, we can also say; That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make your[a] joy complete.
Adam was half the man of Jesus because his rib was taken from him. His hidden insides were seen when his rib, called his bride, was exposed. Eve portrays the elements and workings of the feminine of God; Christ’s comforter, helper and other parent so that we are not left orphans. (John 14.18) This was the Revelation of Adam, the unveiling and the exposure of what would not otherwise have been seen of the female side of God without the revealing of Eve.
So we introduce to you Christ’s counterpart and Bride called Heavenly Jerusalem, being bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh of eternal, invisible elements of Spirit and truth and Mother of His Children born from above? [Galatians 4.26 and John 3.3 – 6]
If you are waiting for Heavenly Jerusalem to appear at some time in the future, from whom are you born from and who is your mother?
This is why the Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ is not so much about catastrophe, but about Her, the Heavenly City. She is unveiled as the final revelation in every age because She is timeless. Christ’s Bride called Heavenly Jerusalem, the Mother of the elect. Even as John the revelator described the “things that must immediately take place saying, “I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.” [Rev 21.2] She is not constructed with the elements associated with time and matter but with the composition of the Father “coming down out of Heaven,” and not assembled with the base elements of time and matter. That would be totally unsuitable and unfitting for Him who is Spirit and Truth, of elements from before God’s 6 days of creation. She is fully congruent with the laws of Creation in that “kind begats after its kind”. She is His kind of Spirit and Truth; His spirit, the Holy Spirit.
Catastrophe and judgment are not the purpose of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. End times is the delusion that disperses the fold with each new theory about the end of the world, confusing more and more sheep. But we speak to you about “that which is from the beginning.” They fulfill in themselves the scripture that says “you are not entering The Kingdom of God, nor are you allowing those who are trying to do so, therefore your judgment shall be greater.” And “it would be better off to be tied with rocks and dropped into the sea then to deceive one of these little ones” to delay their entrance. But these persist hell bent and hellbound for judgment. 
The purpose of the Book of Revelation of Jesus Christ is to expose His rib, to unveil His Eve. To describe His counterpart. This is why the book concludes with His Bride, Wife and Mother of His Children. Whose children we are if we have been begotten by the Spirit and the Word of Truth.” We are a kind of firstfruits of His creation being flesh of His flesh and bone of His bone of His attributes and sound doctrine, and not tangible things for the carnal senses.
Even as a diamond is best seen in the backdrop of a black cloth, so too, Heavenly Jerusalem shines brightest in a backdrop of darkness, hence catastrophe. The Revelation is about Heavenly Jerusalem, the Mother of those who are in Christ where. The old Covenant mountain was shrouded with smoke and a fearful fire do that “if even a man or beast touch they should die”. How much more fearful Mount Zion the City of God?
She is also. She is shrouded with cataclysms and spiritual darkness that occupy the flesh and the thinking of the carnal man. These we must overcome to ascend to our rightful inheritance “seated far above all principalities and powers in Christ”.
It is “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants the things which must immediately take place.” The book of Revelation concludes with Heavenly Jerusalem. Why? Because She is the Revelation of what is in Christ. She is the Hidden Side of Christ that cannot be carnally seen. She is cloaked in mystery. The catastrophes are the distraction. For even Mt Sinai, where Moses was instructed to make things after the pattern you had seen on the mount, was shrouded with a tempest and a fire so that if even a man or beast should touch they would die. Why? Because flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom. It is not invited. The man cannot get you there. Only the Word can. The cataclysms were the distraction, the smoke screen wasto deter the flesh. But we boldly enter in Spirit and Truth.
For we do not need boots and compass for our journey to the Kingdom of the Father but the Words of God. These are the tools of our trade. That which is flesh is flesh and that which is Spirit is Spirit. You must be born again? And we are. Our new nature inherits “the Kingdom of God at hand” at your fingertips, which is Heavenly Jerusalem the Mother of those born of the Spirit. (Galatians 4.26)
The only thing that accesses the invisible is the newly created of the eternal newlyweds as those who never get old, but are always new. So we are. This is the Israel of God and not some silly plot of land on planet Earth. (Galatians 4.26-26 and 6 15-16)

THE BROODER

The Holy Spirit is Heavenly Jerusalem and The Bride of Christ. She is the feminine part of the Godhead that is equally God, being co-founder and co-creator, as seen brooding over the face of the deep during creation; in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the Spirit of God was brooding over the face of the deep.

 

From inside Christ on earth, and through His lips She said through Him, “Oh Jerusalem how I would have gathered you as a Mother hen gathers her chicks but you are not willing.” She says that again today and the gospel confirms. “Come to the wedding for all things are now ready.” [Matthew 22.4] Even as Christ said, “I and the Father are one,” the Father is equally male and female, She is there. Where? In Christ.  “In Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body.” And She is there. If we are “in Christ”, Christ is in us. We have Her, too.

She was also seen brooding over the Israelites when they marched through the desert as a pillar of fire by night and a cloud of covering by day. But the Israelites  greater Glory was after everything was set up of the things the Lord showed Moses on Mt Sinai saying; so Moses finished the work the Lord gave them to do by setting up the tents of meeting with the tabernacle and articles along with the priests the Levites and the children assembled. Then the cloud filled the tabernacle of meeting and the Glory of the Lord filled the temple. For the first time She no longer brooded over but entered because these things were assembled correctly.  And if the invisible elements of the invisible God are correctly assembled in you, then She is in you as well. This is “The General Assembly and church of the firstborn described in Hebrews 12.18-28. of Heavenly Jerusalem.

So only when Israel was gathered together with all the articles of faith and assembled, then did She come into them. Her wait was over.The Lord’s Glory was in the tabernacle (figuratively speaking about Christ’s body, John 2.19+)  and Her name is Heavenly Jerusalem. Now we are the temples of the living God. She is the Glory of God and like with Christ, She is in us. We were not left orphans. (John 14.18)

As it is taught in 2 Corinthians 11 that the woman is the Glory of man. The Glory of God is His female counterpart, too. Before She filled the temple, She only brooded waiting their arrival to these invisible realities. Are you ready? Can you see what we are talking about? Or is She still brooding? Are you still brooding?

The Kingdom of God is at hand in this way. It is at your fingertips.

Much like any mechanical device, you must have all parts connected for it to be active and operational. So, too, the several components, or better yet, truths, that make up the Godhead must be reassembled in the spirit of your mind to activate your faith. These truths are for us, the elect, to more clearly see our heritage in the carnally elusive one. We are to accept Them (Ekeinos) as They really are with Christ’s hidden person, counterpart and Wife.

1st Peter also rightly defined the women as “the hidden person of the heart.” And so She is in the heart of the Father and ours, too  if we are able to receive Her.

She is central to the purposes of God and the centerpiece of the gospel being, “The Kingdom of God at hand.” For us the elect, “we are now fellow citizens, members and saints of the household of the living Father,” as described here from the book of Hebrews 12, But you have come to the city of the living God, to Mt Zion and Heavenly Jerusalem, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn, to the spirits of just men made perfect”.

For the time that is coming now is when you will no longer worship the Father in Jerusalem but in Spirit and truth.” The true Jerusalem. (John 4)

The scripture starts with Adam’s unveiling of Eve and concludes with the unveiling,  the Revelation of Christ’s counterpart Heavenly Jerusalem, like bookends. This is the beginning,  conclusion and the purpose of scripture.  God’s Heavenly Kingdom and the Bride of Christ being one and the same. And the most important aspect of this remarkable Lady, the First Lady and The last Lady is… The Kingdom of God is always at hand. Even now She broods over The darkened waters of the lowly of  heart and beacons it open.

Christ said “Behold I stand at the door and knock. To them that open up???

15 “If you love Me, [d]keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another [e]Helper, that She may abide with you forever—17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Her nor knows Her; but you know Her, for She dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

This is your Wedding invitation.

 

THE WORD OF GOD IS OPERATIONAL AND ACTIVE TODAY
