A Race of Kings and Soveriegns.
The human race has a God given objective of producing a harvest of those who are uniquely re-imaged like God.
Scripture tells us that the elect, of those whom He has selected, are to Rule and Reign with The Only Begotten Son of God. That we are joint heirs of the things of God, our Heavenly Father.
Meaning that we are kings and sovereigns too. That we have excecutive power and decision making abilities. As those who co-rule and co-reign with Yashua. We can make our own choices with our inheritance on the who’s where’s what’s and when’s with our portion of the shared Kingdom of God of multiple co-sovereigns.
And because Yashua came first to save (that’s what Christ and Messiah means). He earned that right and gave it to us as part of our inheritance to use at will in accordance with His purposes after our inauguration. So we too can say, this one and that one is mine.
We do however have our testings before hand, but God has held nothing back from those He shares His title with. We are indistinguishably one “in Christ”.
With the title comes responsiblities and He doesn’t give us any tasks we are not able to do, who also empowers us to do so. He gave us the right to be His offspring” (progeny). Not of any merit on our own, but because of the mere fact that He said so. He gave it to us by way of willing it to us by means of the New Covenant contract signed with His blood. God is this serious.
If you’ve followed us this far, maybe you are of this sort. Unless you are held back by doubt, fear or love of this age, and you are willing to receive it, because “as many as received Him? To them He gave power to become His offspring, even to those who (simply) believed in His name”. Are you getting this? Can you hear the Heavenly calling saying “come up hither”.
And from Revelation 2 Christ said
26 And those who overcome, and keep My works until the end (showing your continuel participation), to them I will give power over the nations— (This is the inauguration)
27 ‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; (impunity)
They (the enemies) shall be dashed to pieces like the (unwanted) potter’s vessels’—as I also have received from My Father”. This He gives to us whom He has prepared.
So when this age is over, and the elements have been removed with a fervent heat (2 Peter 3.10), it is those of us, who “have pressed in to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of us”. Us who have taken Him at His word “as beholding in a mirror the Glory of the Father, we are transformed from His Glory to His Glory to His self same image and likeness as by the Spirit”. 2 Corinthians 3.18
He is the place the Glory resides. And when Christ said “I go to prepare a place for you, that where I go, you may be too”, who also said “and where I go you know, and the way I go you know too” and we did. Who also said “I will come back and recieve you to Myself” and He did because He said “Lo I am with you always” we didn’t have very far to go. When Christ said this word, it was as instantaneous as when He said “Let there be light” and there was. This is His trademark and signature move that “It is finished” and His Spirit departed from His man. He left that way to show us how to do it.
This is how we earned this right. Not by physical means but as it were, by inheritanced through the New Will and Testament. This is what Paul meant when he pleaded for us to be reconciled to the Father. We humbly accept this gift given at such a great cost displayed at the cross. Thank You Heavenly Father!
You cannot add to it or top it off. You can only receive it, not to hide it, but to learn how to use it while you are in your Transfiguration mode.
The writer of Hebrews wrote of those recieving their finishing touches “of whom the world is not worthy of”, who in their patience knew that “God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us”. They are cheering on your completion of the gospel in yourself for this greater association. This is “since you are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses” who are cheering us on. We have a living audience.
For this reason “Yeshua Christ was the first born among many offspring” (meaning there are many more like Him) while He was flesh, so we know the flesh is not the hindrance but a hardened heart and a distracted mind is. He obtained that right for us by becoming one of us and shattering the barrier of the great (carnally) unknown. We assume His right and gift by putting Him on, one attribute at a time, untill we have been consumed by Him. This is our Consummation. “We are complete in Him who is head (and controller) over all principalities and powers”. And know we are done when we’ve experienced and excersized it even in this age. He has prepared us for “In the day the Lord comes to be Glorified is His Saints” of those who have received His finishing touches.
You have to have been human to judge humans. And you have to be God to be a righteous judge. He became human (not His natural self) to obtain that title, then returned to His natural self. For this reason He has the ability to share all that with whomever He selects.
He has chosen to share that with us the Elect. This is true god-like-ness. He has chosen us who’ve received His Glory to share in His tasks. There is no greater task or calling.
The parable of the man with 5 talents and gained 5 more explains it like this “21 His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord”. Showing us a return of at least double on our efforts of patients and perseverance of pressing into the Kingdom. There is nothing lackidaisical about this.
And in the parable of sowing and reaping, some harvested 5 fold, 10 fold 100 fold and more” so you know it’s value compounds exponentially.
Even as it says in Revelation 1. To Him who [b]loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, 6 and has made us [c]kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” So we can see here too that it is not a temporary employment.
Paul said “Know ye not that ye shall judge angels? How much more things that pertains to life”. Showing us the spectrum of our duties. (1 Corinthians 6.3) And “He has not put the realm we speak of in subject to angels but man. Who is man that you would consider them for this task? (Hebrews 2)
And from Obediah “Then saviors shall come to Mount Zion (or Heavenly Jerusalem, Hebrews 12.22) To judge the mountains of Esau, And the kingdom shall be the Lord’s.” This too is a forshadowing of the invisible.
These are testimonies of a plurality of sovereigns and judges of those doing the Fathers business, the family business, not of saving. There is but one accredited with accomplishing that task.
Just as an apple tree bears apples and an orange tree oranges, so too the Fathers tree called the cross. The Christ of the cross, bears offspring uniquely like Him. Not the crusified Jesus, but the resurrected, ascended, then seated in Glory, this is the final destination of the gospel.
It is those who laid our old self at the cross by faith, considering it dead with no need to pander to it, having then come up heaven-ward, we cease not our ascention until the Father sees we are done.
As the psalmist said “I shall not cease untill I awake in thy likeness” speaking of Gods fullness, being his reflection in the mirror we call the Spirit.
So when it comes time to sift through the debris of the ages, it is us who have sifted through our own debris to end up “in Christ” with Christ. It is us who are empowered to collaborate with Christ as His co-sovereigns. We have the excecutive power to say who advances Heaven-ward to their reward, and who does not. Why? Because He has prepared and empowered us to fulfill His sayings. We are the Body of Christ.
Even as Christ promised through John in The Revelation, that “To them that overcome I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
He overcame at His temptation where He turned down the offer of recieving earthly kingdoms.” Besides, they were already His.
We have become “a Kingdom of priests and kings” without subordinates. And we all have our Mephibosheths, our crazy man at the Gardarenes, and our woman taken in the very act of adultery in our care, “and the gates of Hell shall not prevail”.
We have the parable of the Eagle brooding over the carcasses as being a sign of where and when this would take place. “Wherever the eagles are gathered, there the carcasses shall be”.
Eagles don’t eat road kill! So their interest is not in the carcass. Our interest is in the vultures who were distracted in the bait and stepped into the trap.
The (overcomer) eagles are gathered because the vultures descended (opposite of ascending), and left open a vortex for the last ones to ascend.
We are the watchers and the holy ones who have, at the behest of the Holy Spirit, reincerted ourselves into our rightful due, in the heavens that Satan clamored up into with Adams fall from that realm. But Jesus Christ said “I beheld Satan fall like lightening from Heaven” to help us understand the game plan.
We are now seated far above all principalities and powers. The Eagles in their perch now prepare for the final chapter to wrap this up. Jesus Christ doesn’t do this. He is seated waiting for His enemies to become His footstool” because He has given us this task as scripture says “in that day when He comes to be Glorified is His Saints”, because we are His eyes and His ears and His members of His body. “We are now His members, citezines and saints, built up a habitation of God in the Spirit. Having been built upon the foundation laid of the Apostles and the Prophets, Jesus Christ the Chief cornerstone and we are living stones.
This is the purpose, the anticipation and the conclusion of the work of God in this age, us, the Elect. Then the books will opened and recited from. Then the rest of humanity will be judged according to their works as seen here. (Revelation 22) 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before [c]God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books”. You may ask what books? We know. We are those books because we are those who have kept His words and made them our own. That makes us co-owners and co-heirs of the things of God. For “in the beginning was the Word. The word was with God and the word was God” and we? Became word too, this is true God-like-ness
But for now? The Kingdom of God is still, at hand, but the time is short because the time is coming when it will be said 11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him [e]be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” That time has stopped and change has ceased and everyone is set in their way.
Amen, and Amen!
