In the Hebrew language God is Echad. Meaning God is one. Deuteronomy 6. Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! Meaning; God is indissoluble, indivisible and inseparable in His original composition of Spirit and truth.
For this reason there is another construct than Spirit and truth, and that is time and matter. In this construct God is broken down into individual sound bites, not for a carnal manifestation, but for our mental rumination, consumption and growth. For our transformation from here to there. He who is eternally one and complete in Himself is immortal and invisible then broken down into the law, the prophets, then reassembled in Christ, spelled out by “The New Covenant” associated not with Jerusalem on Earth, but with “The kingdom of God at hand” that was first preached in the time of Christ, and is still in effect today.
God is indivisible and inseparable. He is only broken down in concept for us to realize who God is by degree, one revelation at a time, to the degree we are able to receive, until we learn and adopt the elemental principles not of the building blocks of Earthen elements, but of the invisible building blocks that makes up God in the spirit. For this reason “we are living stones built up a habitation for God in the Spirit”.
This is Gods building now. With things of God in His natural before time construct of “that which is from the beginning”. The before time. The eternal one, to whom we are called to. This is the “Heavenly Calling”.
It is as we consume the assorted truths in scripture to rescript our mind, that we re-assemble the Son of God in ourselves in our inner man and become Godly. We become godlike in this way. Scripture contains the very DNA of God for us to be re-scripted. Because DNA is information, understanding information is knowledge. This is why we are instructed to grow in the knowledge of God. This is knowing God, receiving God as he is we become like Him. Where? In the spirit of our minds, the place where He interacts with us.
In the beginning was God in Word form, and as we consume His word we are modified internally and become “a new creation in Christ”. We are born again and re-created in this way. “Old things have passed away, all things become new” in this way and not another. We become immortal, invisible eternal and not time sensitive.
Like Paul chided with those returning to the old Jewish customs”you observe days months seasons and years. I am afraid that I’ve labored for you in vain”. They laid God out on a time frame called The Feasts and awaited God’s physical manifestations but physical God is not. And from Paul “I labor to have Christ formed again in you” because they forgot what they learned.
We are not to think of God in a time dispensed linier fashion, but a succession of continuel revelations that transform the spirit of our mind. (Romans 12.1 and 2 Corithians 3.18) The word “transformed” from these two passages are the same Greek word generally translated “transfigured”, showing the place of our transfiguration.
God said “My ways are higher than your ways as the heavens are higher than the earth so are my ways higher than yours, and my thoughts higher than your thoughts”.
So when we receive the Son of God in Word form, not the man but the construct He was before He became flesh, being the elements He is made up of from before the Father spoke Him. We receive God in His true form “for in Him (The Son) dwells the fullness of the godhead body and we are complete in him who is the head of all principalities and powers”. If we partake of His invisible personage we understand of him in His Word, this is how we go through our own transformation, and transfiguration..
It is our journey here in time and matter to understand and realize more clearly what Word means and how to put Word on. How to put Christ on as scripture instructs us to do. We learn to understand what God is. We assimilate God in this way in the inner man and in no other way. How else do you acquire the invisible? “For we have this treasure in earthen vessels (our man) that the Glory and the Excellency may be of God and not ourselves” our outer body. It is other worldly. And that we are “transformed by the renewing of our mind”.
We put on Gods invisible nature in an invisible way “from faith to faith” no other visuals. For we who have begun a good work in the spirit perfect nothing in a carnal way. He said “My words are spirit and they are life”. We see the “evidence of the things unseen” and we accept Him in the spirit of our minds. We use our invisible tool of faith to implement “the things that have been freely given to us in Christ”. In this way we see “the hidden things in Christ” and in this way we see our new self hidden there too. In this way we fulfill the verse that says “Father that they whom you have given Me may be with Me where I am”. Yes! Seated in the heavenlies in Christ”. With Him, like Him and enjoying the delicacies He enjoys of the pre-created order of all things.
We the elect are the true heirs of “all the things” of God in this way. We do not associate with the sit and waits of the second coming.
It is us “the called” the eklisia, who have arrived. To us who have been given the keys to the Kingdom, we have unlocked it and entered in. “No one has descended from heaven but he who has ascended to heaven who is the Son of man who is in Heaven” (John 3) And if we are in Him, we are in heaven because heaven is hidden “in Christ”. Because all things of God culminate in the spirit, in Christ in one. God is one, God is Echad.
Word is the full sum, the collection of all His concepts broken down in what is called the law and the prophets, fulfilled and expired in Christ, of invisible building blocks we call truths in the spirit. Truths displayed to our understanding to be reassembled in our inward man to the culmination of all truths to the truth. God. Echad. Did not the Christ pray for us to be one with Him as He is one with the Father? (John 17)
Just as like species communicate in their own language, fish to fish, bird to bird, and man to man. We must put on Word, the Son of God, the manifest mind of God, to communicate with our Heavenly Father, and to enjoy our Heavenly heritage. To have a clear relationship with God. This is the purpose of the cross. His “words are spirit and they are life”. We associate with Him like this and assimilate what we associate. “We speak what we hear and testify to what we see”. No impurities. “In Him” there is nothing else to talk about but Him. And we who are “in Him” know this truth where there is no darkness or other fabricated impurities. We have nothing left to say, but we say everything at the same time. He is complete in Himself and as we take Him in, we are as complete as His self. Like looking in a mirror. We see a reflection of Himself in ourself as His same self and His purpose is completed. Just as our Lord on earth said “Father I have finished the work you have given Me to do. I have given to those You have given Me, your Word and they have kept it”. And so we did. This is the finished work. Our transfiguration had its transformation and we are complete in Him. We have this “koinania”. We too are one. We are of the Echad in the Family of God by clothing our mind in this way. Because God is spirit and truth, we see our new person is spirit and truth also.
When you were told to put on the breast plate of love, what store did you buy that at? When you were instructed to “Let your feet be shod with the Gospel of peace”, who tied your shoes? When you were told to “taste and see that the Lord is good”, did you pallet that with your tongue or your mind? Do you see what we are talking about? Then you have the eyes to see of a different nature. A spiritual one.
It was said to the Israelites and Jews “seeing with their eyes they see not, hearing with their ears they hear not, for God has given them the spirit of stupor to be snared taken and caught.
But not so for us. We are of the elect. For those of us “who have eyes to see and ears to hear” of a different nature. A spiritual nature. Being born again not of the building blocks of time and matter that are to be disolved after your transformation, but by His words and His Spirit.
We are redeem not with disolvable silver or gold but the Word of God that endures forever. To be “a kind of firstfruits of His creating” being “born again” “born from above”. (John 3)
To conceptualize God in this way is to conceive in the spirit. To be genetically altered from the preconception of the carnal inception of the death passed on to the Adamic nature being “from dust to dust” to the life of God in Christ” receiving eternal life “from the spirit to the spirit”. For “He who has the Son has life, He who has not the Son has not life”. To our inheritance we arrive. We arise.
This genetic alteration we do In the “inner man”, in “the spirit of our mind”. We serve the Living God by reassembling these concepts passed on to us through scripture, to realize not so much only who He is but who we are now. That is why we look to the scriptures “as beholding our face in the mirror are being transformed into the same full image, from the glory to the glory, as by the spirit”. Not being a mirror to reflect our eye color or our skin complexion but the complexion of our spirit, and so we do. We put our new nature on, and as it says in scripture to “put on Christ”. This then is our purpose here on planet earth.
Our purpose is not to wait for another coming one to transition us. It was “the wicked servant who said “my Lord delays His coming”.
The New Covenant is already in place whereby God writes these things not on tablets of stone but on our invisible tablet we call the heart. We ponder these things and they are raised incorruptible in the spirit of our mind. We assimilate God by assembling His self in ourself to become one, indisolvable. We associate with God. We are of His kind of Spirit and truth.
It is scripture that contains the very genetic information of God given to us for our “transfiguration”. That word from the Greek is “metamorphos” and as a worm does not comprehend the flight and life of the butterfly, so too the carnal mind cannot understand the spirit. They are diametrically different. They are in fact opposite.
As we take communion not with a wafer, but by palleting His Word, we partake of Christ, we receive this genetic information. “We know Him even as we are known” as Paul said in Galatians. Like Adam knew Eve. A genetic transfer takes place. We display perfection in the spirit in our understanding and fufill in ourselves “till we all come to perfect understanding, to a full stature of Christ”. An exactitude of who He is, is our goal. We fulfill the verse in ourselves that says “when that which is perfect is come that which is in part is done away with” being the law, the sacraments and the Feasts.
The first Epistle of John says “that that which we have heard which we’ve seen which we’ve handled which we’ve touched essentially which we’ve consumed concerning the word of life. That which we declare unto you that which we manifest to you. And why do We do this? So that you too can have fellowship, koinania and oneness with us. A homoginization of God’s invisibleness with us who are spirit. To spiritually manifest with God. Our full sum duty, role and goal to God is to articulate these things.
It is in this way that the kingdom of God is at hand. Within our grasp.
God is Echad. God is One. We are one with God “in Christ”.
The Kingdom of God is at hand.
