From Hebrews 10.12; Christ, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, 13 from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. 14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.

Hebrews 1 discusses how that Christ is now seated waiting till His enemies are made His foot stool. So here is the glorious truth about the gospel “once and for all delivered to the saints”. It is as the gospel is received in us and appropriated by faith that it subdues our enemies. We see and believe and appropriate the word of God as scripture says “for who shall ascend into heaven to bring Him down? Or who shall descend to the depths to bring Him up that we may do it? (Or how long must we wait for a 2nd coming? ) But no, the word is very near to you that you may hear it and do it. It is even in your heart.That if you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth…then you shall be saved. It is in this way that the words of God are actualized, initiated, and instituted by the working of faith “for the just shalllive by faith”. And it is in this way that Christ is seated with the Father waiting for us to join Him there with Him saying “follow methat where I am you may be also”. And how do we get there? By word. We appropriate His word.
You see the gospel message is a blue print for our transformation and transfiguration and not a survival guide for you to wait for a second coming.
There is no future saving or deliverance but the deliverance “once and for all delivered to the saints”. There is no future battle for the Father or Son because scripture says they “are seated waiting for His enemies to become His footstool“.
   The battle is in us now as we appropriate Gods promises by believing and confessing them into existence against the obstacles in our lives. This becomes our work of faith for God did not leave us here orphans or helpless, having to be saved from your fallen state or save you from a fallen world. We have been given the keys to the kingdom and the keys are His Word, the Son who was with the Father and became flesh for this “greater salvation”.
Hebrews 4.12 For the word of God is living and powerful (able to do this), and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
     So it is in this way that we put off the sin of the flesh and put on the new man who is the same image as Him who made us. Word.

     And this is the principle of faith, being the Word of God which is living and powerful in us, that we receive in our heart, believe it in our mind and speak it with our mouth, when the facts are contrary, when what we see doesn’t jive with what the spirit is saying and we choose to believe the word in spite of the physical proof screaming at us and tell us contrary to the spirit. “Hath God really said?” For those who follow God in this way? They are the children of God. (Romans 8)

You see there is no 2nd coming battle to wage for humanity as some suppose. Christ is seated waiting for His enemies to be subdued. Scripture makes no reference to a 2nd coming battle in a physical way. And scripture is clear that sin has been dealt with, that “the ruler of this world is judged” “satan has been cast down, Christ has been given authority over all flesh and “all things have been put under foot. The only enemy now is the sin of unbelief. (John 16.8)
So when scripture says “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could think or ask according to the power that works in us… to Him be the Glory in this age and every age amen.., It is that the Father is glorified in us by us re-iterating His words and confessed by our mouth that become our new reality. If you are fighting against Satan sin and death other than by scripture, meaning, the word of God, then you are fighting in vain. You see the battle field is in our mind saying “For the weapons of our warfare are mighty through God for pulling down strongholds and everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”. It was God who gave us the keys to the kingdom, being His words displayed on the pages of His book, to overcome the obstacles of our day saying “in the day of salvation I have heard and I have helped.Today is the day of salvation”. These are Gods words! Yes! And amen!
    This is how you overcome the obstacles you have. As much as we want to see a light from heaven and one ride in on the clouds to reach out to us and save us. The saving is done “in Christ “. Christ is “seated waiting for His enemies to become His footstool” subdued through you. In this way you show yourself a child of God by your words. His word active in you. This is the saving of the gospel by word and need not a second coming saving. Christ said “it is finished” and is seated victorious  in all authority, then gifting it to us who believe for us to become “the full measure and stature of Christ”. A duplocate of Christ to a perfect son “till we come to the full stature and likeness of Christ”.
This is for those of us who have returned to the Father, and what Paul was begging you to hear saying “16 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. ( now and not at a 2nd coming)18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

This then is salvation and the eternal gospel “once and for all delivered to us” to take us into the presence of the Almighty in the here and now.


The Kingdom of God is at hand.

Jacobs Ladder 4 The Purpose of Paul

The purpose of Paul

Paul was born in “due time”. To be an apostle he had to have seen our Lord. And he did. The 11 disciples thought Mathias was to replace Judas as “one who witnessed the resurrection”.  And he did. Mathias knew Christ in His in carnation, but it was Paul who saw Christ in His true self. Having seen a great light from Heaven he said “who are you Lord”. Paul later described that incident as having seen the Lord. Paul saw the “lo I am with you always” and not the one who has to come again.
     Paul was qualified but not like the 11. Paul did not witness the incarnation but as he said “the gospel I preach to you did not come by man (an incarnation) I did not receive it by man, nor was I taught it by man but by revelation of Christ”.  As Paul was on the road to Damascus he saw a great light that shone  brighter than the carnally visible sun and he said “Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecute. 16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.
This is proof of who Christ is.  He is not a man. And this shows us that the revelation of Christ has not just 1st and 2nd comings but is progressive in nature, that scripture saying of the revelation “ both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.” Paul was sanctioned to testify of the progressive revelations of Christ. Paul started preaching and became better and more clear by “the things which I will yet reveal to you.”
   This then is the proof that Paul witnessed the resurrection not as an event but a persona invisible to the naked eye. And it also shows that the revelation is progressive by multiple revelations not just 1st and 2nd comings. As Christ said of Himself “I am the resurrection”. Paul saw a resurrected, glorified Christ.  The very thing that the 2nd coming seekers look for in a carnal way. But that He is not. Paul meandered away from seeing Christ as a man needing to rule earth in a human form later saying “for it is God who commanded light to shine out of darkness who has shown in our hearts to bring to light the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” being Gods expressions snd behaviors . And he saw it first like that on the road to Damascus and circumvented the need for a 2nd coming to do so.
   It was because of this that Paul began his journey and transformation away from the Satanic antichrist way of thinking like the Jewish leaders who said “when does the Kingdom of God come?” The answer?  “It cometh not with (carnal) observation”. Luke 17.
This is why we need to see Paul’s letters as progressive and not all as having equal authority.  This is “rightly dividing the word of truth”.  We learn to see in the word who temporarily put on humanity,  the “lo I am with you always,  even to the end if the age”. The one who said “I will never leave you or forsake you”.  And if we can learn to see this we need not be preoccupied with another coming and another Kingdom because the  kingdom is now at hand.
     When the disciples were told “there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of God coming in power”? And this is what Paul experienced. A timeless event of a being outside of time. Some are delighting to see an event in time and matter.  Time and matter is unfit to fully display the One who is outside of time. The One who said “they shall not enter My rest. This one calls us outside of human boundaries like Paul said “You observe days months seasons and years.  I’m afraid for you that I’ve labored in vain “?
     Yes those who see the revelation of Christ as a physical event are in a scary mindset. It is not a 1st and 2nd coming but progressive revelations “until you come to a full measure and stature of Christ” through the gospel. The gospel defines the Full revelation through a series of smaller revelations for transformation, for transfiguration.  Your transfiguration.
     To be “the full measure and stature of Christ” is accomplished by faith which is our invisible embelical cord to the invisible God. Paul said ” I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation for all who believe. And salvation is the full package from sanctification  to justification atoned and glorified saint of which you are called to be.
   It is that our new bodies are as invisible and ubiquitous as His. And his exactness is what is gifted to us by the cross. This is what John saw from the book of Revelation when he saw one of us and tried to bow down to worship him. That  glory said “see that you do not do that because I too am one who keeps the testimony of God.  Worship Him”. This one has a glorified body before a 2nd coming, which the 2nd coming mindset denies for they wait for another man Jesus.
   So it is by the gospel the work of God has it’s conclusion and not for those who wait for another conclusion for the saving called the 2nd coming.
     Paul is one of the 12 and counted as foundation stones of the Kingdom of God of which all who can receive the conclusion of their teachings, that  is all who stand on their finished works are counted as “living stones” built on the foundation and more clearly seen outside their parrabolic form that was visual on earth to the carnal senses. But we are members of the house hold of God now.
     So if we get stuck in our thinking and transfiguration at mid way points in Paul’s transformation and transfiguration, we stop short of the full message that he was developing through his epistles, Meaning if we see all scripture as equally relevant, we stop short of the full gospel message.
    People who see all scripture equal, use lessor verses to cancel greater verses that are designed by God to conclude the gospel of God unto salvation and the work of God to be accomplished in our own personal walk of faith as we reach for why Christ laid hold of us”. And I assure you that we are apprehended by the word of God for something much greater than to wait for a person at a 2nd coming for a purpose to be revealed now. That is Christ in you. The hope of Glory. The Glory working in us now that creation groans to see. That creation desires to honor. That God desires to see for “it is the Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” and “I give you the keys to the Kingdom” being the Word of the gospel. And you can have it while those who resist God walk about you.
     This is why 1 John says of us “The world does not know us because it did not know Him”.  This is us “as He is” is our invisible part that co-rules and reigns. Those of us who like Christ who “being in the form of God thought it not robbery to be equal to God”? Yes! We sit with Him in the heavenlies. We sit beside Him. The price of the blood is a sufficient price for this gift and it insults God for you to refuse the gift. The second coming seekers reject this gift and ascribe it to another Jesus. That is another gospel. And that is the gospel Paul started with. But I assure you he didn’t stop there.
    So stand on the finished works of Christ and the foundation of the kingdom and accept that “ye are saints and fellow citezines of the house hold of God” now. The other kingdom coming is the competition that is to be rejected.
The Kingdom of God is at hand! Operative and active today

The Lie to Adam and Eve

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

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

Our Transfiguration

Download PDF
Tried, trued and transfigured
When Christ was with his disciples he told them assuredly I say to you there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. It is here that Christ was saying that some of them would see him in his kingdom in great glory and power. And again but I tell you truly there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God. And it came to pass that Jesus took Peter James and John up to a high mountain and prayed and as He prayed the appearance of his face was altered and He became glistening white. So it was here that Christ showed himself as he truly is. He explained that they would see the Son of Man coming in great power and glory, meaning that while he was in his human body they would see him transfigured, that they would taste death and see something of the afterlife. And it was here that Christ showed his transfomation while He was incarnate for us to have hope of being transfigured in our incarnation. He showed them something all Second Coming seekers desire to see. What the Second Coming seekers desire to see is something not bound by time or those who were standing there that would see it before they would die would not see it because they too would have to wait for another coming of another Jesus and circumvent the words Christ just spoke. And this is what the Second Coming seekers do they circumvent the gospel. They neutralize the gospel. But it can be said of us as it was for them that there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see Christ transfigured.
   So if we can understand the Transfiguration as not being a spectacular carnal event called a second coming after the tribulation, that is if you can receive these words?  Then it is true for you, that you to not only can see the Transfiguration but that you can experience it for this is what we are asked to do. BE YE TRANSFIGURED! Romans 12
You see after the departure of Judas in his betrayal there was left an empty seat. And the 11 disciples drew straws and chose Mathias. But Mathias was short lived for along came the 12th born out of due time or better rendered from the Greek born in proper time and in his due order.
For one of the qualifications to be considered an apostle is to have seen the Lord. So along came another name Paul, the wicked man doing wicked works against the called. And this man’s account was he had seen a great light from heaven and asked him who are you lord why are you kicking against the goads? It was here that Paul saw the Lord. You see he had to see the Lord to be qualified as an apostle, and because he saw Christ as he truly is, not incarnate but as he truly is invisible. And this is the testimony of every true apostle.
   You see Paul was among the Jews who were expecting a coming king and a Co ming Kingdom like the 2nd coming seekers. Of which Christ represented and they rejected. But Paul experienced another King and another Kingdom, a non visual one. He saw him who is the same yesterday today and forever.
So the 11 saw Christ as a man and some saw him glorified king like the Second Coming concept even back in their day. Paul’s message was that the gospel I preach to you did not come by man nor was I taught by man but by revelation of Jesus Christ. And because he did not see the man Jesus but he saw Christ as he truly is? This is how he was qualified to be an apostle. Because he had seen the Lord but not the man Jesus
   So there are some things we need to understand about the Transfiguration for if we see Christ as a man, that is what we try to become like him but if we see him as he truly is? As he is eternal immortal invisible the only wise God? Then we can be transformed into that.
   The term Transfiguration only appears a few times in Scripture. Two of these times we already referenced in the man Jesus. There are two more times, one time in Romans 12. It says be ye transformed by the renewing of your min” and is rendered properly from the Greek be transfigured. And if we understand this correctly? We do not look for a carnal transformation a carnal or human Transfiguration. You see because we are instructed to be transfigured in our mind, this is the place of the Transfiguration and reasoning of our eternal parts being are circumcised heart and our soul. And from 2nd Corinthians 3:18 therefore we are being transformed or transfigured into his self same image from glory to glory as by the Spirit of the Lord. It is in this way that we become godly. We become godlike. And it is in this way that we become holy, that we become saints. This is our invisible part.
   It is in this way, by the renewing of the mind, that we put on Christ. It is in the mind, the interaction of the heart and the soul, are invisible parts, that we are clothed with what we see in Christ, when we behold him in glory. Like it says in Corinthians “transfigured  from glory to the glory as by the Spirit”. And the miraculous thing about this is that there is no human transformation visible. It is the mind. And if we cannot see him transfigured like those in the days of the man Jesus, if we cannot see him transfigured like Paul did as seeing him who is invisible, if we see Jesus as having to come back in power and glory before we can accept his transfiguration, then we cannot be transfigured either.  We subject all Scripture has having a fulfillment later to be glorified later and pass up a chance of our transfiguration now. If we think the transfiguration is a carnal thing like a rapture, our soul admits it cannot see him who is invisible. And you cannot be transformed. You cannot be transfigured. You reject the testimony that God gave of His son. That His son is a chip off the old block, identical to the Father. But you see a man and you commit the same blunder as the Jews.
    As it is said although they knew God they glorified him not as God but changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the corruptible man. So the Second Coming seekers do
They deny Christ and because they expect another incarnate Christ?  They become enemies of the gospel. And they are enemies because they reject the voice of him who calls us from heaven to heaven. This is the place of our calling and the reason why God sent His Son into the world? Was to show to us as we are in our humanity that the Incarnation and the Transfiguration can coexist. That “we have this treasure in earthen vessels” a disposable thing “that the glory and the excellence would be a god and not of ourselves”.
   So let us be about our Transfiguration. Let us renew our minds. Let’s let our minds be reformatted and fitted with the gospel. As Paul said “I am not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of God unto salvation”. And if this is true as we describe, then there is no need for a second coming transformation. If there is a Second Coming transformation, or a Second Coming Transfiguration, same word in the Greek, then the gospel is weak and you do need another access point to the kingdom. But if you can reject that false gospel and reformat your brain with these truths? Then you too can have the thing that is said. It can be said of you too that “there are some standing here today who shall see the Son of Man coming in great glory and power before you die. This is the gospel Paul spoke of saying “the gospel I preach to you did not come by man but by revelation”. A new understanding. Paul experienced the revelation of Jesus Christ and he did not have to go through the seven year tribulation and a rapture to see another Jesus for this to happen.
   So we encourage you to be refitted and reformatted with these truths to receive the gift of God and eternal life. BE YE TRANSFIGURED! For “today is the day of salvation” and today “the Kingdom of God is at hand” if you can receive it.

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

If any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him

Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. Says the Lord. Hebrews 10.38

If we shrink back into our own plans, our own coverings, He has no pleasure. But we walk in the light. Revelation comes when we are in His light. To walk in the light is to walk in continuous revelation. Not like a 1st and 2nd coming but continuous.  His revelation is His light and not the light of 24 hour increments. This is what it means when scripture says “in That day” and “the day of the Lord” is to walk in this revelation. To allow the spirit to guide you for “as many as are led by the spirit of God? These are sons of God”
  We walk in His light, His revelation. This is how we are either “in Adam” “in that day you will die” or “In Christ” to eat of him for “in that day you will live” for he who beleives in Me has passed from death to life”. And the unfortunate thing about this is that if your mind is blinded by the god of this age, and expect a carnal display, unlike Paul who was blinded by a light brighter than the sun. That is because he saw the Son in His true form, being light unfettered and unhindered eternal substance that cannot be homogenized into a place of time and matter in His true form which is why He became flesh temporarily to show us the way. Can you see this? Well if you said yes, you didn’t see Him with carnal eyes. But you saw Him with your “eyes of understanding”,  the place of your transformation saying “Be ye transformed in the spirit of your mind “. This is what happened to Paul with the Lord saying  “things you have seen and things I will yet reveal to you.  Paul had to face the continued light for this and not a 2nd coming.  but one who presents a Christ to come of this age to supercede the saving of the word who became flesh, then you must interpret scripture in time and matter bound my “months days seasons and years”.  But the light of God permeates all these and precedes them.
   We are in the day that all other days model. We are in the eternal day being constant revelation. If we walk in darkness and uncertainty then maybe we have left the path of the things God has said to us by way of revelation and have shrunk back into our provisions and our plans driven by fear and anger. This is the sin of Cain before He killed Able. He provided his own plans, his  own covering and provisions.  But we believe to the saving of the soul.
So we walk in the light as He is in the light”. And it is not that He is just in the light, no. He is the source of the eternal light. “For in Him is no darkness at all”. He is the great light from Heaven Paul saw who was brighter than the sun. He is the light the radiance and the Glory of the eternal Father. The Father of Glories, whose Father we have if we behold His Glory to be transformed “from glory to glory as by the spirit “.  We have fellowship, koinania. We have oneness with the diety of the Father the Word and the Holy Spirit and fufilled the word Jesus said in John 17 “Father that they may be with me where I am, to behold my glory”. The Glory of the Father for in Him dwelled the fullness of the Godhead body;”. And we are complete in Him.
So do not be limited by your carnal senses of sight and sound and “receive with meanness the engraftible word which is able to save your soul”.
