Portals into Heaven
One of the testimonies of the Son of God was as a transportation device like seen here in John 1. “And I beheld the Angels of God ascending and descending upon the son of man” referring to Christs form of humanity and also meant for us to learn something about our new selves.
We can see here that the observant analysis of interacting with the “Christ ” was the obvious connection with the visibly unknowable Almighty God with His attache’ of dispensers He called “angels”, a word also translated as “holy ones” and “messengers”. Meaning delivery mechanisms for invisible things to us in the visible realm. For us to “be renewed in the spirit of our minds” to think like and interact with the Almighty Creator, letting us know where this transformation takes place. In the realm of faith, unsubstantiated by hard facts.
“What is man that You are mindful of him, Or the son of that you visited Him (amended to the Greek) upon us? For you have not put the realm to come in subjection to angels but what is man?
It was The Son of God, become man, to complete the circuit to the Father. This is something the whole Old Covenant failed to do. Gods Son become man to retire their old methods, and became the missing link that restored our safe return home. And because “in the beginning was the word. The word was with God and the Word was God His succession of words, are like rungs on a ladder. Yes, we can take His words and line them up not horizontally to create a plan for Him to come back. But vertically for us to go up.
For you see the messenger/angels who deliver the goods from our Heavenly Father, in many cases are just words through the apostles and New Testament prophets, not speaking of something yet to come like the prophets of old, but something ubiquitous, you just may not know it yet or understand fully, but you can.
For in truth the messenger angels were the prophets of God. For even the name “Malachi itself is the Hebrew word for messenger, and all the prophets delivered messages. However, their message takes you only to the “risen Christ” of a new life. But we have the ascension being our return passage to our home “far above all powers and principalities in the heavenly places”.
The main point of all this is that if we do our “due diligence” in God’s word, with the unction of the Holy One”, to be “re-scripted in the spirit of our minds”, we too become messenger/angels. And the old style messenger angel was ONLY a conduit for the things of God for display purposes, and having no ownership as though they were special other than the special one decided to use their vessel having been filled with a relevant message.
Therefor now with the New Covenant in effect from the cross we say that “ we have the prophetic word confirmed (having reached its conclusion), which you do well to pay attention to it as a light that shines in a dark place (your heart), until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private origin, 21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
This is the description of the old style prophets. But the New Covenant messengers say, “ For we did not follow cunningly devised fables (as were the old) when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. (And this is the qualification to be a New Covenant Apostle. For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” 18 And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. 19 [a]And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private [b]interpretation, 21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but [c]holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
So even as with the old way of doing things. “For the word never came by man, but by holy ones as they were moved by the Holy Spirit”. This is our commissioning and these are our tools. Word and Spirit. That is it, but that is everything. Start to finish, salvation is complete needing no additions or modifications, just clarifications as we do here.
In truth, God can use anybody anytime including a donkey as seen with Baalem. But Our Father takes special delight in living vicariously through those He has etched His special character into He calls, the Elect. As those who have put off the tools, wares and agencies of this age of having any relevance. For you see, we have this promise “28 For I say to you, among those born of women there is [a]not a greater prophet/messenger/angel than John the Baptist; but those who are least in the kingdom of God (at hand) that we are born into since the New Covenant came into effect as “The New and living way” are greater than he” Meaning we. That we are greater in stature because of the greater revelation and not of our selves. Meaning all the old testament of which John the Baptist was the greatest. Meaning that those with the message of the New Covenant comes fully completed. No add on’s, no modifications, no future installments just greater clarifications of the gift we employ the longer we temporarily occupy human form.
So in the same way as the old testament, as having to do with the law and the prophets and an earthen replica of Heavenly Jerusalem come down of God from Heaven, in contrast with their brick and mortar, the modern media messages have no credibility for the purposes of God either, especially as it has to do with a modern rendition of another carnal rendition of a Heavenly Jerusalem, which is itself an oxymoron. But nevertheless they’ve swallowed hook, line and sinker the message of a lie, “with all lying signs and wonders if possible to deceive the Elect? I don’t think so!
“For that which is flesh is flesh and that which is spirit is spirit (and their is no mixture), ye need to be born again”. Yes, you need to be borne from above, meaning brought forth from where all revelation comes. And the words from Christ in John from John 10.1, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Those that enters not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up (think about our ladder here) some other way, the same is a thief and a robber“.
Do you get that? Those who try to re-introduce the expired old testament prophecies, and they all are, are liars, deceived and being deceived sons of Satan. And that is all Satan can do is to have you reject your Heavenly calling, to circumvent it and ground you out by selling you an idea that Jesus is coming back with another form of saving or rescue to another Jerusalem.
Call it what you will. We call it “The delusion with all lying signs and wonders if possible to deceive the Elect”? But the Elect are those who went up the ladder and not with those who lay out events on a time frame of something yet to come. The old testament is expired, and the gospels are in the old too.
For this we also have this picture with David who took Zion and said “Whoever climbs up by way of the water shaft and defeats the Jebusites (the lame and the blind, who are hated by David’s soul), he shall be chief and captain.” Therefore they say, “The blind and the lame shall not come into the house.”
If you have eyes to see, you can correlate this verse to what we are describing, unless you are lame and blind too.
But we firmly confirm the statement repeated by Christ, that “The Kingdom of God is at hand” as something (mentally and spiritually attainable before the body physically dies. If this were not true, then the cross is a hoax because that is what it promises.
And again from Christ “Most assuredly, I say to you, those who hear My word and believes in Him who sent Me (already) has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
If you could really fathom the ramifications of having passed over (yes think of the feast) from death to life, YOU WOULD NOT NEED ALL THE AGENCIES, SERVICES, POLICIES, PROVIDERS, PROVISIONS AND PROTECTIONS FROM THE gODS OF THIS AGE TO MAKE YOU FEEL SAFE (SAME AS SAVED) SOUND AND SECURE. But you do and you did.
You bought into the nestle of lies hook line and sinker. You have your form of salvation, and it has nothing to do with the Cross of Christ. Maybe the blue one with a shield or its many competitors. How about kaiser permente, which means king eternal. Did you get that one? You do know that there is still time to repent right?
The Kingdom of God is at hand”, at least until judgement comes. But when that starts? It will be to late if your hand is still in the proverbial cookie jar.
And from the book of “The Revelation of Jesus Christ”
After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. 2 And he cried [a]mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! 3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the [b]abundance of her luxury.” 4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins [c]have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6 Render to her just as she rendered [d]to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. 7 In the measure that she glorified herself and lived [e]luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ 8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who [f]judges her.
But the Fathers arms are open still.
The Son of God said when He came to be “the Christ”, get behind Me Satan for you are not mindful of the (invisible) things of God but (the carnally visual, provable) things of man. “For the carnal mind is enmity (an enemy) against God. It is not subject to (the laws of the Spirit of) the things of God, nor in deed (a form of action) can be, so that those who are in the flesh? These (human perspectives and efforts associated with such) cannot please God. For one must first believe that He is (in this form we are talking about), and that He rewards those that diligently seek Him”, in a way and a form that pleased Him, “in spirit and truth”, no carnally visuals allowed.
So then we being the body of Christ, joined to the head by several members, are perfectly capable of relaying, not just the descriptions of the things of God, but the very essence of the things of God. Even as the Son told the woman at the well. “The time that you think is coming, is already here because God is Spirit and God is truth and seeks such“, He has laid the groundwork out on how to have access to all the benefits available to us through the gospel.
Even as scripture says “For my ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts are higher than your thoughts”, so are His results more grand than anything you could dream up. And because His things are higher, if you continue to expect physical manifestations to what you ask. Then we have to ask, who served whom. If he does as you ask, he is nothing but a genie in a bottle But if your focus is on your transformation and not your comfort. Then whatever you ask you shall receive because He said “if you ask anything in My name, I will do it”. The things in His Name are things of His inheritance from our Heavenly Father, of which “we are joint heirs of the things in Christ” not later, but as we learn of what we have, where and when to use it. That “we have been given everything that pertains to life and Godliness”, and we are held back from squandering our eternal inheritance for temporary things of the earth. For where a person’s heart is, there their treasure will be also.” But to continue to fight in this age, for this age with this age’s tools and welfare in mind? This disconnects you from the will of the Father, your sanctification, which is your safety and provision zone. Meaning that you have an impenetrable barrier between the visible and the eternal for they do not mix. However you experience them first hand in the spirit of your mind where the New Creation gets assembled, one word at a time.
So, if this does not appeal to you? Go back the way you came. This is not for you. You are from below of the earth and subjected to that. But we being born from “above, and of the spirit, have a completely different heritage
If you are feeling challenged or deceived right now because of sincere intentions. Maybe feeling miffed in your understanding. That you’ve experienced to many heart breaks and losses. It may be because you have not made this distinction and to let go. That you may not really understand the love of a Father. For every time you’ve struggled and lost, every time you’ve invested and did not capitalize, every time you sowed and you did not reap, and every time you built something up to lose it? You have misunderstood, for if your Heavenly Father allowed you to capitalize on physical things, He would violate His own laws of “sowing (planting) in the flesh to be raised in the spirit, sown corruptible, raised incorruptible. Planting in this age to reap in the metamorphisis. That is why “if in this life only we have Christ, we are the most pitiful of all men” because we haven’t much to show for it. But for those with the right intensions “where your heart is so shall your treasure be”. That you were able to work in this age that fades, for things that are Eternal and don’t fade. That for a work of a short time, you will be rewarded with things that do not fade, discolor ware out or break. That’s the best deal ever. “For in due time we will reap our reward if we DO NOT FAINT”. This is the faith and the patience of the saints. For those who have ears to hear. And in truth, just because it isnt physically visible, doesnt mean you cant access it now. Wasnt our invitation that “The Kingdom of God is at hand”, meaning, within reach?
For this reason He is the Father of Glory’s of those who have made it through the vail of the flesh. That we are “born again, and “borne from above”… “Do not fear little flock (the few that can hear) it is The Fathers good pleasure to give you the kingdom”. But anytime you try to associate Gods Heavenly Kingdom with the carnal, you ground it out. “For as the Heavens are higher than the earth, so are My way higher than your ways and My thoughts higher than yours”. But more importantly is that the time you think is coming later? Is right now when we worship God in spirit and truth. And because “God is spirit and truth and seeketh such”, these are the elements we are to become and to enjoy His humanly indescribable gifts, even while we cohabitate a human vessel. That a Father is most happy to see His reflection in His children. And we like the “prodigal son, waking up in our despotism first, to then turn towards home and see the Father waiting gleefully to have you back, by us returning in our mind. To then be “seen seated, in your right mind” like the man at the Gadarenes.
There is nothing from there that you can loose here. There is nothing from there you can appreciate fully here. And there is nothing anyone or anything can take from you here, that doesn’t have an insurmountably greater trade in value in Heaven. Even as with Steven. As He was being stoned? He felt nothing but the Glory of God and the love of His Son who stood up with a hand out to ensure that this transition was immediate and painless.
In truth, when the Son of God became man and went to the cross to take on our death and spiritual debt, He stayed their through the agony long enough to pay for tge sin of all humanity. Meaning anyone and everyones death has been paid for and paved over. Yes you will have your growing pains, but thats all they are, or if you are resisting this transition you may be chastised. For what loving Father does not do that. They may do it for their purposes, but our Father does it for ours. That we may participate in His Glory now. Not after we die. Thats been taken care of. You just need to “reach out to lay hold of” it, to claim it and stay the course.
In this way The Kingdom of God is at hand! But you must press in clamor out of and climb up to “lay a hold of why Christ laid hold of you”.
