Flesh and Blood Does Not Inherit The Kingdom. But The Re-spirited Mind of Faith Does. In this way “The Kingdom of God is at hand!”
All the Old Testament/Covenant, concepts were given to learn how to walk in the spirit. They are a visual collection of the concentric that leads us into the midst of the will of God that we call “The Holy of Holy’s”, the most sacred place that is set apart from creation as “The Kingdom prepared from the foundations of the world, for the Son of God who is “the same yesterday, today and forever” who put on the flesh to perform His task to make us one with the Godhead. This is “The Holy of Holy’s. But you see He never un-became who He always was. He became one of us then blazed a trail back to the Father then called us there to Himself saying “follow Me that where I am, you may be also”, for us to associate and fellowship with the originator, author and source of all things being the Creator in the New Creation. Not that it is new having never been before. No, it is new in that it never fades or wains but is always illustrious and new. But to those who don’t believe that “The Kingdom of God is at hand”, they hold out for another and call it a second coming. We however are found “in Him” not having our own righteousness but the righteousness of faith, so that when creation is removed, we are found with Him, having acquired the gift of God as seen “in Christ”. As 2 Peter reminds us that “10 But the (last) day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be [a]burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,
But remember the lesson of the parable of The Wedding ceremony. There are those who went to the world to buy what they thought they needed to enter The Bridle Chamber, to be told “depart from Me you workers of iniquity for you are not mindful of the things of God but men”. They were looking without for what should’ve been within. This is about the concentric into the midst of the will of God. Remember He spared no expense and even now. For He had said “lo I am with you even until the end of the age”. So remember salvation slumbereth not. Awake to righteousness and believe lest you be found like those who say “open unto us Lord”, to hear the reply “depart from Me you workers of iniquity fir you not mindful of the things of the world and not Me”. And “I do not know you from where you are from” because they are in the world and of the world being fixed on the idea of the Christ becoming a man again, all the while He is seated in Heavenly places calling us to Himself. This is the purpose of the gospel. For us to become like them and not the other way around. For you see the gospel is for our conversion not His. Even as the first prophecy explains “let Us make mankind in Our image and Our likeness”. When the number for the Elect has been reached then each one will be judged according to their works (Revelation 21). And woe be to those who tuck the scriptures under their arms one day a week and never understood the things written therein. “For it would’ve been better off not to have heard the transforming truths then to hear it, distort it and go in and out unchanged waiting for their change to come looking like a new humanity. But we know that the flesh returns to the dust and the Holy Spirit preserves those who have made it their home. We know this because “we have an unction from the Holy One and know all things”. Even as the Christ said to us on His way back to the middle of the concentric “A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me, because I go to the Father.”
The caveat here is as He said to “follow Me that where I am you may be also”. But don’t forget, He said “I’ll never leave you or forsake you” so it is not as if you need to see Him in bodily form to receive this because “more blessed are those who have NOT seen yet believe”. For they will have the thing that is said. Remember everything that was created originated from Him. Meaning that He was around before He created. And if He becomes a created creature again He would be in costume and be a pretender and an impostor because that is not really who He is. And if He does come back with the flesh on like we have, He makes Himself a liar and that can’t be. So you see tge transformation and transfiguration is ours. Where ? In our re-spirited minds. Even as it is written in Romans 12 to “be ye transfigured in the spirit of your minds. That you may know Gods good and perfect will”.
So whatever you are thinking needs to take place for you to start living eternal life, you are wrong. The only thing you need to do is repent and believe the original and true gospel of faith as having to do with life in the spirit. “Because the law of the Spirit in Christ sets us free from the law of sin and death so that we can walk in our new life now. Repent and believe the gospel. So it is your choice what appetites to appeal to based upon your focus, here or there.
