THE TRAITS OF THE ELECT
Scripture says that “The first shall be last and the last shall be first” and we are right on time.
It was the first who are last because they had the pure form of the truth of the embodiment of all truth “in Christ” with the expiration of the obstacles (Old Testament relics) to be able to make an easy assessment and a clear distinction without too many distractions.
But It is those who are “more blessed” who have NOT seen yet believe”? This is us who are last who have NOT seen Christ in former fashion of the flesh, or the destruction of that Israel, nor did we see Moses, or hike through the wilderness following the miracles, nor heard the Prophets. Had they have worked, Christ would NOT of had to come to expire them.
“More blessed are we” because we have NOT seen as they did, yet we believe the things that are written. Like “The Kingdom Of God is At Hand” as being central to the gospel and utmost importance of something we are able to press in and attain to now! But NOT with our physical features. Oh no for “Flesh and blood does NOT inherit The Kingdom of God”! But the re-spirited mind of faith does, and it does it NOW. That is why ” the Kingdom is preached and the violent take it by force”. This means we don’t take NO for an answer.
The whole Old Testament only anticipated what was given complete to us “In Christ”, For us who are “in Him” in the here and now, to grow into His likeness. For us to assimilate to postulate, then emulate and apply during our sojourning here on Earth which is our practice field.
This is what it means to be born again. We got our do-over and we are doing it.
All the pictures, patterns and parables are expired in us as the gospel has reached its conclusion. And that is? A re-imaging in us into that of His Son. This is what it means to be Christ-like. A gift that was given in the beginning with Adam, then lost to be restored “in Christ” who is Adams replacement. Christ is our prototype that we pattern ourselves after as participating in “such a great salvation that was first spoken by the prophets and confirmed by those of us who’ve heard it”. This is where the gospel picks up at and why it is to “that which is from the beginning”, as something different from the end times and the law age interlude that was unsuccessful, because how many were righteous? “None, no not one” (Romans 3.10). That “the Law (culture) was added to make sin exceedingly sinful” and “added till faith comes”. Yes Christ was their undoing and replacement.
Paul told the Romans “Therefore, be renewed in the spirit of your mind”. This is where it ALL takes place and not on some silly plot of land. “That you may know (and prove experientially) what Gods good, acceptable and perfect will is” (which is His perfection borne into us.) (Ephesians 4.13).
The Elects Extensive Training.
It is The Elect at the end of the age who have had to sift through the debris that has been foisted on us over the ages. Like an attic of old books and writings moth eaten and eschewed, to then be remodeled and renewed into its original intent of making offspring and images suitably like the Father.
We have had to question EVERY THING including holy days, religions, mass, sabbath days and even scripture as it is rendered and presented to us today in it’s many various versions, and find them ALL lacking.
We’ve had to challenged the 66 books put in place way after the facts, and found many missing. We have examined sentence structure and found that wanting too.
We have challenged the changing of the names of God and come clean in the eyes of The Father. Because “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all”. Meaning, in His presence the obscurities melt away. “And we are in Him this is true” in His Son the Righteous One. Having sifted through the renderings at the behest and the directive of Gods Holy Spirit, we simplify the obscure for “God is not the author of confusion”. And climbing through the rubble of the ages, re-organizing and re-stacking as we go, removing the carefully placed redirects inserted by the ignorant, the misinformed and the flat out enemies of God and the unlearned, who did the best they could with what they had. NOT to give them credence or glory, but these obscurities we’re designed by God the Father for us “on whom the ends of the age has come”.
It is for us to Obtain the Glory which God has intricately woven throughout scripture, and left there for our discovery and retrieval (2 Corinthians 3.18). For us to “put on the loins of our mind”, with the Glory and the fullness of Christ which is found there. Like mining for gold, we’ve found the mother lode by digging in deep.
For us to rise up to the challenge of the ripening of the age, of “the wheat and the tares maturing together” of which we are right on time. And for us to be seen as the fulfillment of that scripture and the purpose of this age of God bringing forth His offspring similar in all ways like His Only Begotten. NOT as He was as a pauper. Oh no, that was our role He took from us, but as “joint heir’s seated in Heavenly places in Christ’. The One who temporarily “became flesh and dwelt among us”, then put it back off. For us to in turn put off our sin of the flesh and put on word and Spirit. To become what He was before and after He put on the flesh and dwelt among us. Because “in the beginning was the word, the word was with God and the word was God, He was in the beginning with God. We become the purified word of the things He has said and are unmistakably His look alikes and representations in a dying world.
Be not mistaken! When God put creation in motion He had already designed and installed portholes and opportunities for His offspring the Elect to come into fruition and He placed port holes into His Kingdom. For us to be His Sons look a likes, to make this irrefutable claim. Our Father had us do so with the greatest challenges of all time, that Gods word, purpose and completion has endured till the ends of the world IN SPITE of all the clutter from the ages.
And for this purpose “the days will be cut short for the Elects sake”. NOT to save us as though we are weary or need help. No, but because of His Grand Finally is so perfect and complete, against the greatest of obstacles. To God the Father be irrefutable, indisputable Glory! And He’s shared it with us. He is not wiping His forehead and saying ‘Wew! because we barely got out. That is Blasphemy!! Everything has gone as planned and the Grand Finale is more than epic as the final numbers come in.
The Father and the Son have both been seated waiting for their enemies to become their footstool”. And because Satan sin and death lay powerless for us as spectacles at the base of the cross, we can clearly see that the only enemies left for us now are peoples doubts, fears and unbelief. Why? Because Christ entered the Fathers Rest to sit and watch with Him a long time ago (Hebrews 1.1-3). And the Elect also join them there “each one in their own order” as we clamour up the proverbial “Jacobs ladder”.
So some of us get that and Rest with them there even NOW! “For there remains a Rest (retirement) to the people of God? For those who have entered His rest have ceased from their works as God did from His”. But some still ask “Has God really said?”
Finding His word irrefutable, we sat down from our wrangling over what’s next because that doesn’t matter ANY MORE! for those of us who are “in Christ”. We are fast forwarded past the end of time, to “that which is from the beginning” at the place where all time meets and “enter His Rest. We’ve become spectators with the Godhead Body, being joined to that One body whom Christ is the head of. That we are living stones having been built (past tense,) upon the (fully laid) foundation of the Prophets and Apostles with Christ the Chief Cornerstone”. This is “The Kingdom At Hand.” Welcome home if you get this.
As a result of this, we are His authorized versions for others conversions that culminate with all that has been before us, because we have sifted through everything. Then collecting and re-assembling His little morsels laid out cryptically in scripture for our retrieval, to own and to use to become more and more like Him, as “we reached out to lay ahold of why Christ laid hold of us”. In this way “be ye reconciled to the Father” not just in concept but in Truth. With these He is pleased.
Like Satan jump started Adam for his un-godlike quest because of the inversion in thinking at what is called “the fall”. We have been re-inverted and reinserted into our upright position for the rediscovery of what ‘hath God really said?” We got the answers. And having covered the gamete of supposed truths presented to us, be it scripture, Holiday’s, religious authorities, historical presentations, health, wealth, the sciences and other religions. We are cemented in and glued to being unmovable and unshakably clinging to every truth that fits neatly joined together like the assembledge of a coat of many colors that exemplifies Royalty Not so much to the onlooker, but to the angels and the Heavenly Father. As scripture says “for even the Angels in Heaven behold the face of the (Heavenly) Father in these little ones”. But we are not so little now.
It is us who have sifted through presentation’s, of the fake and false history (His Story), all of the pseudo sciences, the wealth and health policies and all the religions, all of them. And by the prompting and the behest of Gods Holy Spirit, the Helper, our teacher, the comforter and other parent so that “we were not left orphans” to fend for ourselves. But fortunately for us we had our mentoring moment by moment telling us to do this and do that, turn this page and look at that, turn here and go there, and we did.
It is with this tutelage that We collectively brought all these things up here in this place of sanctification and had them tested by the fire of the Eternal flame and learned to trust and to hold on to ONLY the things that are up here “in Heavenly places in Christ” that all the carnal copies of these things on earth only pointed to as teaching instruments. And casting off all the illusions, partial truths and flat out lies by popular science, news agencies from every perspective and “spiritual wickedness in high (religious and government) places” and found them wanting. Those are ALL meant by the god of this age to create false narratives to distract, detain, to hold back and thwart people from reaching their God given purpose of participating in “The Kingdom of God at hand”. “While we look NOT on the things of this age, for the things of this age are carnal (temporary) but the things in Heaven are Eternal”.
Meaning for us to reach our destination before our carnal term here in creation expires. To “reach out for the prize of why Christ laid hold of us” as our duty. (1 Corinthians 9.24-25) For you to be fully alive, alert and awake, NOT to the scary images presented by the end time scenario seekers or a second coming message, showing you the assorted dangers and threats to scare you into signing up and prescribing to their various wares and views, to keep you buying this and that to keep you healthy, wealthy and safe. As if thst save you? Or for you just to be mesmerized by the enter-tain-ment. The choice is yours. “Choose you this day who you will serve”.
They can do nothing but offer you a false sense of security. False because they are the counterfeits that have a physical element that you prefer over Gods word. In other words you would rather sign the dotted line or accept terms and conditions instead of giving Glory due to God by believing His promises and instead and say “yes Father” believing by faith “for all the promises of God are yes and amen in Christ”. Our contract is signed with His blood to institute “The New Will and Testament founded upon better promises” than the old.
This is the will of the Father, our inheritance bestowed upon us from the cross of “The Lamb slain from the foundation of the World” and activated one promise after another as you are able to receive them by faith, each in their proper order, until you are found “complete in Him who is head over all principalities and powers”. (Complete means there is nothing more to add.)
Test all things and hold fast to what is good.
It is us who because we’ve had to test everything, and we mean everything, that us seemingly flying solo into the humanly unknown. We have learned to navigate the carnally invisible to arrive at our destination that Scripture has bestowed upon us and given us the affirmation that IT IS TRUE! We have been ALREADY given everything that pertains to life and Godliness. (2 Peter 1.3) And we have ALREADY received every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ. (Ephesians 1.3)
That our carnal experience becomes more like a dream or a story in comparison, where as when we first started to believe, it was the things of faith that we could not physically grasp that seemed surreal. But now the End Times presentations, and they are many, they seem fairy tale-ish, because they are. They are tales of fallen fairy’s meant to distract you and detain you. To have you wait for the coming of another savior and another Jesus in another Jerusalem in another Israel, as though the saving by the sacrifice at the cross was insufficient and incomplete. Blasphemy!
We have even scoured the “Holy Bible” and found it not to be so holy (there is still enough there to hold guilty an onlooker). But that did not detour us because you cannot kill eternal things. And truth is eternal, being an attribute of and from the creator God, passed on to us through the Gospel.
All these things are designed to be obscure for our discovery and for our glory. To attain to the Glory given as our prize and objective.
And from Romans 3, that ALL have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God”. This condemnation is from His Tribunal to every human. You could not be charged for something you were not capable of acquiring (meaning glory) so you should probably take these claims serious. For the time is coming when the salvation program for mankind will be over. Then the edict will be true that “(Those who are unjust, let them be unjust still; those who are filthy, let them be filthy still; those who are righteous, let them be righteous still; those who are holy, let them be holy still.)
The door will be closed, time as you know it, will be no more and what you’ve attained to in Christ? Well, you get to keep that. And of the things you occupied yourself in that was NOT for your transfiguration to glory ? That will likely amount to nothing but the amusement you enjoyed while you reveled (gloried) in such. Oh the shame of missed and lost opportunities. Could’ve, should’ve, would’ve, if you only knew better? And now you do. For the doors to the Kingdom will be locked and “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? And then He will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
Another big lesson here is that if they had been inside on the other side of that door standing face to face, they would NOT of had that conversation. But they were found without because they deemed other things more important. Like self preservation of hunkering down and latching on tightly to the things they had on their side of the door.
So you may ask the question is, how do you know when the Gospel is completed in you as becoming an Elect. When the things of this age have NO power over you in regard to pain, suffering and persecution. Not because of us individually. We have no confidence in the flesh but lay all of our dependencies squarely on the promises from God as being more persuasive then a cashe of weapons.
So we say like Paul in Romans 8
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are “in Christ”, who walk not after the (fascinations of) flesh, but after the (unctions of the) Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath (already) made me free from the law of sin and death (with all its fears and threats).
3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the (temporary) likeness of sinful flesh, and (on our behalf) for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 For the righteousness of the law to be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the (mandates of the) flesh, but after the Spirit.
5 For they that are of the flesh, (set their mind on) the things of (the earth for) the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit (set their mind on) the things (above) of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded (for a scriptural fulfillment of Gods things on earth) is death; but to be spiritually minded (focused on The Kingdom of God at hand) is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh (stuck on end time scenarios and such, these) cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, IF so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if anyone have not the Spirit of Christ (as self evidenced by seeing what we are describing), they are not His.
10 And if Christ be in you, your body is (already re conned) dead because of sin; but the Spirit is alive because of (Christ’s) righteousness.
11 And since the Spirit of Him that raised up Christ from the dead dwell in you, He who raised up Christ from the dead, also quickened your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwells in you (too).
12 Therefore believers, we owe nothing to the flesh, to live after the (mental infatuations) of the flesh.
13 For if ye live after (the appetites of) the flesh, ye shall remain dead (to the unctions of the Spirit): but if ye through the (promptings of Gods Holy) Spirit you mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall have (Eternal) life.
14 For as many as (have these) are led by the Spirit of God. These are the children of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
20 For the creation itself was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of Him who hath subjected it to the same hope,
21 Because the creation itself shall in the same manner be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty that the children of God (had learned to acquire). Are you getting this?
The Kingdom of God is still At Hand!
