We Speak What We Know

WE SPEAK WHAT WE KNOW

“Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness”.
At first glance we think “what’s the big deal?” The big deal is this, if somebody asked you about what you were going to eat and you said, “we are eating dinner then we will have desert after we sit down at ourtable. People would assume you were with somebody or that you were carrying passengers. (invisible friends)
The thing is Christ said that, while He was talking to Nicodemus. There is no mention of other people being there and it was actually at night that this conversation took place. Nicodemus did not want others to know he was even talking to Christ. If it was me in that situation I would exit stage left. We speak, We know , We see. Huh? C-ya! No wonder some people said he had a demon.
Yes this behavior is peculiar but there is more. Ya! So check this out. Jesus also frequently referred to himself as the third person. Here is an example from John 5.19:
 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you,the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.
He repeatedly calls himself “Son of man“, “Son of God” and He says things like “the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven”, “it’s time for the Son of man to be glorified”. He is talking of himself as the 3rd person.
He speaks of himself as if he is speaking of someone who is not there, but he is speaking of himself.
The truth of the matter is this. If you recall from the Genesis creation account, God said “Let us make man in our image and our likeness”. From this we can understand more of the plurality of God, and the Holy Spirit in Christ saying “We speak what We know and testify what We have seen.
With this in mind it makes sense that Christ spoke as 3rd person. A fact is this. Had Christ not been a plurality, He would not have been God. As scripture says ” for in Him dwells the fullness of the God head body”. and “He is the head of all powers and principalities” and “all things have been given to the Son”
I praise the father for this glorious gift for us.
Blessings

A STERN WARNING FOR SUPPRESSING THE TRUTH

A STERN WARNING FOR SUPPRESSING THE TRUTH

 

The Lord continually reached out to a disobedient people. He gave them warning after warning finally saying “if after all this you do not repent I will punish you 7 times more for your sins”. (Leviticus 26)

We see by the time of Christ He said “Oh Jerusalem I weep for you. If you only you had known your time of visitation. Now these things are upon you”. He came a thief in the night and they were left desolate.

We think, how can this be? All those innocent Jews! The desolation occurred, not one stone was left upon another. Jerusalem was seized and over thrown. The Lords patience ran out and they were judged. He said “All day long I have stretched out my hands to a disobedient and contrary people”. They were left desolate, condemned and annihilated.
The Lord said “On you shall be required all the blood of the Prophets from righteous Abel to Zechariah whose blood was spilled at the altar” and even John the baptist and the blood of Christ Himself. As He said “Fill up the measure of your fathers guilt!” And the words from the Jewsh populace “His blood be upon us”. And it was.
Leviticus 26 had been fulfilled. This is a horrific description of them killing each other and even eating their own children and being attacked by armies and wild animals. I know this is graphic and is largely unspoken of but He said do not add or take away from His words. So this should be a wake up call in our day. Nothing happened to the Jews they did not deserve.
They thought they did service to God, in the end they received the wrath of God. Woe! Let that sink in.
You see Romans 1 says that the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness in men who suppress the truth. And that is what they did. They were aware of Gods words and feelings about this and did not respond accordingly and His patience ran out. That was Gods wrath “to the Jew first”. They knew God and they suppressed the truth of God. They compromised His values and misrepresented Him.
We read on in Romans 1 that “they knew Gods eternal power and Godhead so they were with out excuse”. “They professed to be wise but became fools and turned the Glory of the incorruptible God into an image of an corruptible man”. They expected Christ to validate their Kingdom by giving them a man to preside in their preparations and are doing so today under the guise of a second coming, a phrase not found once in scripture.
This was the first great woe. They thought God was a man like them. Huh? Is not Jesus a man who will come to planet earth and rule from Jerusalem? That is your first strike.
For even in Samuel’s day when the populace demanded a king like all the other nations had. What did God tell Samuel? “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them”. They exchanged the glory of the invisible God into the image of a man”, an invisible king for one thy could see. That’s right.
And again Samuel addressed the people saying “But you today have rejected your God, who himself saved you out of all your adversaries and tribulations and have said to Him, No, but set a king over us” presumably one they could see. Main stream Christianity today in the same way, rejects the rule and reign of Christ today in hopes for another savior. Meaning, the main body of Christianity today, preaches that the Christ man will be our king in a future time in a man-made Jerusalem on earth, and rejects the notion of the invisible God being our king now as it was before Samuel. Not knowing Him in this way, they too have rejected Him. They too have turned the Glory of the incorruptible invisible immortal God into a flesh and body man with their “end time” teachings of another coming Jesus.
Lets bring up the peoples response when Moses was sent to rectify the covenant in Horeb. Ex 24.7 “All that the Lord has said we will do it”. This same people did not want to relate to God and also said “Moses, you deal with Him we don’t want to”. They gave away their birth right and responsibility to relate to the Father. They were glad to have someone else talk to God for them and rejected the blessings of God Himself. Maybe like today. With books, commentaries, preachers and other peoples opinions about God, off and online. They have exchanged a personal relationship with God the same way they did. “You speak to the scary voice” for us. He can speak to the hand.
Here is where we are today. The truth is truncated because everyone receives knowledge of God from each other. They have to verify things with another mans testimony. One says I am from Paul or Apollos, or maybe a Baptist or Evangelical and this teacher or that. You are all acting like silly men with your own private club. Don’t you know there is only one body? But what does Christ say? John 2.23-25+ 5.31-36 The people saw the signs that He did and Believed in Him and it says, Jesus did not commit himself to them because He knew all men and he had no need for man to testify of Him.”
They think that if they use the name Jesus, they must be good but maybe they preach another Jesus.
From Paul in Galatians, The gospel I preach to you is not by man, for I did not receive it from man nor was I taught it but it came by revelation of Christ. In other words first hand.
Today especially with end times they follow each other from one supposed prophesy to another. Changing doctrines with each new world event, having no truth but strong opinions. Empty of faith profiting on these theories no matter how many times they change their opinion they repent not. Vipers hatching eggs of yet more vain theories deceiving and being deceived. These are the blemishes in your love feasts. They do not enter the Kingdom because for them it is later and they keep distracted others who are trying.
Hebrews 10 puts out a stern warning drawing a comparison from those who rejected Christ back then and now anyone who rejected Moses law dies with out mercy. Of how much worse punishment do you suppose he will be who thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing. For we know Him who said vengeance is mine, and again, the Lord will judge His people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”.
If you think God will put up with your flippant use of His name putting it on earthly things and on every wind of change, you are mistaken. You are using His name in vain. If you do not take these things upon ourselves and judge yourselves, you will be judged, for “judgment starts at the house of God. 1st Peter 4.17
Christ spoke very firm to the corrupt church in The Revelation of Jesus Christ with these words “I gave her time to repent, and I will cast her into a sick bed and all those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation unless they repent of their deeds”.
We need to get back to basics and back to the message preached by John the baptist, Christ, then those who heard. That is to “repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand”. This is as true today and every day as the day it was first spoken. When was the last time you heard that?
If you are preaching or believing in a kingdom of another day you do not have the King of Kings from the scriptures.
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and Glory forever and ever. Amen
and
To the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and the Lord of lords who alone has immortality dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To whom be honor and everlasting power.”
The Kingdom of God is at hand, Amen

Visions and patterns‏

From Ezekiel 40 we read;
In the visions of God He took me into the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain; on it toward the south was something like the structure of a city.He took me there, and behold, there was a man whose appearance was like the appearance of bronze. He had a line of flax and a measuring rod in his hand, and he stood in the gateway.

And the man said to me, “Son of man, look with your eyes and hear with your ears, and fix your mind on everything I show you; for you were brought here so that I might show them to you. Declare to the house of Israel everything you see.”

Here we have Christ showing Ezekiel the heavenly city, things in the spirit, current realities for them and us. As Christ had spoke of “the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundations of the world”.

The Lord then tells Ezekiel to explain to the house of Israel to be ashamed because of this vision.

Ezekiel 43.10   
“Son of man, describe the temple to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and let them measure the pattern11 And if they are ashamed of all that they have done, make known to them the design of the temple and its arrangement, its exits and its entrances, its entire design and all its ordinances, all its forms and all its laws. Write it down in their sight, so that they may keep its whole design and all its ordinances, and perform them.

That they may be ashamed? I mean we are talking of the blue print for the 3rd temple aren’t we? Didn’t God give that to us so we can make it? So He can come back and be our King?

Paul said in Acts 17. 24 “God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. 25 Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything,

I believe the earthly temple and articles were meant to teach us the greater reality of His unchanging eternal kingdom.
When Christ said “the Kingdom of God is at hand” meaning “right here” the Jewish leaders thought they were running the show. When Christ was asked if He was a king He did not deny but just said His kingdom is not of this age, and offered it to them if they would repent, or “be ashamed”

Moses went up Mt Sinai, and the Lord showed him this kingdom. The Lord told him when making these things on earth to “Make all things according to the pattern I showed you on the mount”.

So this is the sin for them to be ashamedThey worshiped the articles and not what they represented. As in Christ’s day when He said “destroy this temple and I will rebuild it in three days” they thought He meant their brick buildings.

Again with the Israelite’s as they gallivanted through the desert carrying the ark of the covenant having the mercy seat with the two tablets in it, yet they did not see the one who sat on it. Although this chair appeared empty, it wasn’t. The ark contained the tablets which was the Words of God Himself, the living word, His words which created all things.

 

Oh the irony. The chair appeared empty yet the box contained the Living word where all things came. The ark seated empty was full of eternity. And today, some are looking for that wooden box? Some are looking for a red heifer? Some have a fixed gaze upon modern Israel? Anticipating a temple? What then sacrifices?

Tell my people their sin that they may be ashamed. Could our leaders be doing today what they did back then? 

Christ goes on to say to Ezekiel 43  12 This is the law of the temple: The whole area surrounding the mountaintop is most holy. Behold, this is the law (immutable truth) of the temple.

We understand through Moses that there is the holy’s and the “most Holy” or “Holy of Holy’s. That the Levite’s, after they kept themselves from their wives, had no strong drink and dressed in fine linen, were able to enter the holy’s, but the Holy of Holy’s had even higher standards indicating that even after they sanctified themselves and cleaned their flesh up as best as possible, there was still a Holy place unreachable, indicating that there was yet another dimension off limits to the flesh. as we know this was bridged through Christ by His blood

What “Most Holy” means is “not like this world”, “another dimension”, alternate reality” the true reality. The originator of all things, the fulfillment of all visions, parables.

In John 16.14 speaks of how the Holy Spirit will Glorify Christ, and take what is Christ’s and explain it to us. So the question is… is the book about the Jewish people and the renewal of their kingdom? or is it about the revelation of Christ?

Icor 9 But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,

Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”[a]
10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.


Fortunate for us we have access by faith in Christ which enters behind the veil into this 
reality. Let us be careful not to mix the unholy with the Holy.

The crux of our faith is this, what part of His word we do believe without seeing. For more blessed are those who believe without seeing.

Mary, sister of lazerous said “ya I know Lord he will rise again in the ressurection on the last day. Christ told her I am the ressurection and the life” “My reward is with me”, he says in Revelation. I am here. Christ finally told her ” did I not tell you that if you believe you would see the Glory of God”. This Glory is the Glory the son had before the cross. The lamb slain fron the foundation of the world.

God doesn’t need an event to take place for Him to give us something. He always is. When He preached ‘The Kingdom of God is at hand, or “right here” It wasn’t a cliche’. He meant I am the Kingdom, My reward is with me. I am the fulfillment of everypromise, every word of the father. I am the word, the living word! I am the ressurection.

2 Cor17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

Ro 8.19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. 24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?

20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through u
s: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

6 We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. 2 For He says:

“In an acceptable time I have heard you,
And in the day of salvation I have helped you.”[a]

Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

Your understanding of Abraram as a type of father and Sarah the fathers wife. They bore Isaac. After the father sacrificed His son and after the death of the fathers wife, The father sent His servant (H.S.) to recieve a wife from unbelievers. Signifying Gentiles, the church. The Father very specifically said “Beware and do not take my Son back there. The Holy Spirit indicating that she had to agree totally by faith.

If God the Father establishes a kingdom on earth that is visible, with salvation it defies everything He has done. That way did not yeild faith and without faith it is now and always impossible to please Him. His Kingdom is not of this age, not of this world, not of flesh and blood, not of this temporary creation.

His Kingdom is Holy, sanctified, the reality, us being the alternate reality.

2 Pe10 But the 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 burned up.[a] 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

He 1 says after Christ purged our sin He sat down,, waiting till His enemies are made His footstoo, and the last enemy to be destryed is death.

Rev 1 7 He is comig with the clouds and all shall see Him, they also who pierced Him.

If His kingdom is eternal it is Him. He is the only eternal. Make according to the pattern on the mnt. With Ez he saw visions of God

INTRODUCTION April 24 2012

There are so many distractions when it comes to our greater purpose. Life itself with all the demands around us. Things always commandeering our mind and physical senses. Most of the time we don’t even recognize this. We think as Christians that this will all stop, but then we find ourselves in a whole new set of challenges and distractions. Like which denomination am I? Which ones are distractions? I think all these questions are answered when we see The One calling us. I think He is as complicated and simple as the first words out of His mouth, His first expression to us. Even as it says in 1st John, “that which was from the beginning”. That is “The Kingdom of God is at hand”. He is our purpose and the purpose of this blog to focus on Him.

Some may ask of my qualifications. Some may want to reference what is said here, with commentaries and other sources. We have to admire the Bereans (Acts 17.11) for going to the source of all revelation, the scriptures. That is what I do. I will agree the the Apostle Paul when he says “the gospel that is preached by me is not according to man, I neither received it from man nor was I taught it, but it came through revelation of Jesus Christ”.

I have learned that everything about God is a revelation, and that the Only Begotten Son is His own self portrait. That “in Christ” is all His fullness and His invisible attributes. That silver and gold I want not, but His indescribable invisible gift of Himself. That all the promises of God have their fulfillment “in Him”. Not in an activity, or a church, or a nation, or an earthly kingdom, but “in Him”. Our citizenship is “in Him”. (Philippians 3.20).

If I am seen as foolish, and if it looks like I have nothing, this I know, that being found  “in Him”  I have everything. That since I receive His righteousness, and I “put Him on” as He said, as the new testament instructs, with all His invisible attributes, that I am clothed with the eternal and divest myself of these perishable rags, that those who are dressed in the world are the ones who are “poor blind and naked”. It is a pity that many who confess Christ see themselves as stuck in their humanity and wait for Christ to come as a man to rescue them from this world.

He came preaching “the Kingdom of God is at hand” because He is “the Kingdom”. His reward is with Him because He is the reward, it is Him. He is the same yesterday today and forever! He is not of this age or creation. His kingdom is not a juncture in space and time of the 6 day creation, but a reality.

When all the dust of this age settles, (Hebrews 12.22-28) when all that has been made has been removed, then all will see those who found “Him” will shine. There will be many who weep because they did not grasp the fullness of the gift that was “at hand”  that was available for them in this world by faith. Him who “was and is and is to come”. He always will be. For “of is fullness we have received”. If we seek Him by faith.

This One who said  “repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand!. This was not a statement said then taken away as meaningless or temporary, but is THE truth for all of mankind for all of ages. HIS KINGDOM IS emphatically AT HAND! Where you are right now!

I Timothy 6.15-16 He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.

May He bless you with the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, to interact and associate with Him where ever you are for God is limitless. He is there. He is the “Lo I am with you always, even to the end of the ages”.

The Kingdom of God is at Hand as “The Kingdom prepared before the foundations of the world”. Amen

Enjoy.

8th Day

8TH DAY

The Sabbath and the Lords day are different days. The Sabbath is the last day of creation signified by 7′s.

In Lev 23 at the conclusion of the 7th feast the people were given an 8th day. This was said twice marking the importance. The portrayal of the feast’s 1-7 had concluded it’s testimony. They would then repeat this 7 feast cycle every year, until?   Stick with me this gets good.
Joshua having entered “the land” and dividing it up had not entered the true rest only signified by the 7th day, for He spoke of another day, stated in Hebrews 4, hence showing “it is not of this creation” not of our world. Not available in this cycle of 7′s. He pointed to another, but the promise of the land was completed.
Solomon also having finished his portrayal of being “the King” in “the City” celebrating tabernacles the last feast, sent the people away on the 8th day. For Solomon was not the son spoken of, for the son was said to be eternal, so Solomon also referred to “another day” after the 7th day. And in Christ’s day, His new work, is why the true believers, seeing Christ on a donkey, knew He was what the portrayals represented, or pointed at, The true King. For they with faith looked past the value of the flesh riding on a donkey and saw One riding on a white horse.  The Savior.
For the law and the prophets could only testify to this, meaning they pointed to this day as the 7th feast concluded with, and the prophets spoke of another day and time, but that was only as far as they can go. But now the 7 feasts have been fulfilled, Christ has entered the tabernacle eternal in the heavens, not made with human hands, being our High Priest forever like Melchizedek, being the reality that all the feast’s and sacrifices pointed to Him, putting them to an end to never return to, Christ obtained eternal salvation. The series of 7′s have expired in Christ. Not just the Passover and Pentecost, for all the law and the prophets were until John who said “this is He” the Christ. Mt 11.13 Including the feast of Atonement and Tabernacles, or Christ has more work to accomplish in this creation, but He is done, henceforth waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. Can you accept this?
The feast’s pointed to this day, Joshua pointed to this day, even with David, “Today if you will hear my voice” then with Solomon as the King in the City, and many more like these all pointed not to a physical day, a physical land, a physical temple in a physical city, meaning not of this creation, the creation signified by 7′s, but the new creation cycle that has no day or night or physicality for the hour is coming and now is when you will will not on this mountain nor in Jerusalem worship the Father, for the Father is spirit and He is truth and He seeks such to worship Him. “TODAY” This is the creation we are called to, better yet born from. Amen?    For those who have ears to hear!
Again with the circumcision. All males shall be circumcised the 8th day. This too pointed to the “putting off of the flesh” after the cycle of 7 and putting the new man, as we are instructed to do by faith. Another portrayal pointing to “the 8th day” Meaning the new creation.
Here again from Revelation 5, the scroll sealed with 7 seals and all who looked on wept “because no one was found worthy to open it”. Enclosed and sealed within the feasts is the new creation, much like in a cocoon to be opened, and if Christ had not come to do His second work, His second creation, we too would weep today, but Christ at the cross removed the seven seals by fulfilling the requirements, hanging on the cross like an eternal billboard sign, an invitation to all humanity, taking away the hand written ordinances that were contrary to us, He opened up the scroll written inside and out, which is Him, the word of God. The veil, His flesh filleted, arms wide open inviting all who will accept Him.
As for those still bound by doubt in the Sabbath and feast’s? Paul addressed this with these words, “you observe days, months, seasons and years. I am afraid for you that I have labored in vain”.
Let us not “insult the Spirit of grace and count the blood of Christ a common thing”. And let us go on to maturity not laying again the foundation of dead works, baptisms laying on of hands and resurrections and this we will do if God permits.
So brethren, see how silly the arguments of a Saturday Sabbath verses a Sunday Sabbath really is? Christ rose on the first day after the Sabbath day, before the first light ray. Mt 28.1, Which is also the 8th day, being the first day of the new creation. And we are a new creation, 2 Cor 5.17.  This is the day we celebrate every day!!!!!!!

Ekienos 2 and the plurality of God

EKIENOS # 2 AND THE PLURALITY OF GOD. 3/19/14

In previous articles we discussed the nature of God as being a plurality. Some call this the trinity. This one God, or THEY who said in the beginning “let US make man in OUR image and OUR likeness “. Unlike Adam and Eve who were made in Gods likeness “male and female made He them”. They were split and portrayed “selves”, from the Greek “autos” that became one in covenant to show the plurality and the unity of God. That is a unity that has always been with God, but we understand this in marriage. The two become one to be able to have offspring. And we are the offspring of God being of the New Covenant by receiving His word or DNA and breath. His DNA  is written not on tablets of stone but on our heart by God.

We also discussed how in John 3 Jesus said to Nicodemus “we speak what we hear and we testify what we have seen”. How Christ was one and plural at the same time by saying “we”. Christ was in the father and the father in Him. Christ was in the spirit and the Spirit was in Him. Hence a plurality in unity. Adam and Eve portrayed on the outside visibly for us what God is on the inside. In the Spirit. A place that we can’t see with our human eyes so He broke His image down for human consumption. That is he purpose of all the pictures and patterns. For God to show us Himself. And all the old testament pictures and patterns are complete in Christ of which the word says “no one as seen God at any time, but the Son declares Him”. What the old testament did in parables, the Son now tells believers plainly about the Father for the Father is manifest in Him. “Thomas if you have seen me you have seen the Father”.
We discussed how the Gospel of John uses the Greek word “ekienos”. A word every where else is translated “they” and “them” but in John it is translated “He” and “Him”. As though John didn’t know what he was talking about and he needed the English translators to fix it for him. I am sure John knew exactly what he was doing and the translators should have appropriately rendered “ekienos” “they” and “them”.
So today we look at the first Epistle of John and we have the translators trying to fix John once again by changing (ekienos) to “he” and “him”. They also frequently change “autos” to “Him” when “autos” is a gender neutral term that means “self” male or female. We will expound on this in other posts.
So from first John 2.6 it says that “whoever abides in Him ought to walk even as He walked”. It should say that we “ought to walk even as They (ekienos) walked”. So by that scripture I learn that “They walk in me as I walk in them”.
In 3.3 of us being the offspring of God “everyone who has this hope purifies them-self even as He (ekienos )  pure”. Meaning, They are pure.
And 4.17 “Herein is our love made perfect… because as He (ekienos) is so are we in the world. This should say … because as They are so are we in the world. So are we in the world as they are, in spirit and truth, in plurality.
This is the same plurality (ekienos) Isaiah describes. “In the year king Uzziah died I saw the Lord high and lifted up”. Here we have the spiritual principle I have discussed in other posts. An earthly king sown corruptible and through a revelation the true King raised incorruptible in Isaiah’s mind. To the invisible unchangeable ever ready always present truth . The kingdom of God is at hand. And right after that the Lord says through Isaiah  ”Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us? This is the plurality of God. Us.
The whole purpose of the gospel is to bring us to this. To be reconciled to the father in the son and the spirit. He who has the Father has the Son. And he who has the Son has the Bride. (John 3.29) He who has the Son has the Father and this is all done in the Spirit who bears witness, who testifies to the Son, this Bride is the “anointing we have received that teaches us all things (eternal)”. Of whom when the spirit comes “the Helper whom the Father sends who will teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance. Another helper, a different person in the Godhead, the comforter, the Spirit of truth whom the Father sends so you won’t be orphans, the other parent who is not Jesus but His Bride. The one who is not known by the world for they neither see her or know her. And this is eternal life that you may know Them, the “ekienos” in Him.
John opens up in his first epistle with these words. “That which was in the beginning which we have seen, which we have handled, concerning the Word of life. The life was manifest and we have seen and we bear witness and we declare to you that you also may have fellowship with us, that you may be one with us, with the Father and the Son”. John is speaking in the plurality like Christ was to Nicodemus by saying “We”. His invitation is just that. “We ought to walk as they  (ekienos) walked. We should acknowledge the plurality of God in Christ in us.
This is the fulfillment of Christ’s prayer in John 17 “that they all may be one, as you Father are in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, that they may be made perfect in one”. This was said by the One who also said “Let there be light” and the light happened immediately. He who made the lame whole immediately with a word. Can you believe this? Can you receive this? Then it is now and it is for you. Christ spoke the prayer and it is a reality.
And what we have is not a perfect flesh but a perfect understanding to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Eph 4.13 in the here and now. “We have the mind of Christ”.
As Christ said “I go to prepare a place for you that where I am you may be also”. This is that place. The place as He says “I go to prepare a place for you”, “If I do not go the comforter will not come. As we receive “another helper” we enter that place. That place is what Christ meant when He said “the Kingdom of God is at hand. Like Uzziah had to be sown a flesh king for Isaiah to see the Lord high and lifted up, so too Jesus as a man has to be sown in our understanding, planted in human form to ascend to be high and lifted up in the spirit. As He said to Mary “do not cling to me yet for I have not ascended.
Another principle we have been discussing is “He takes away the first to establish the second” That is why Christ had to go for us to receive the Spirit. Not that He wasn’t already in all power. It was our brain, our new man that had to follow this, so that “where I am you may be also”. This is the purpose of all the pictures and patterns and the purpose of the Son himself. To take us to the Father. ” Go tell the brethren that I have ascended to my God and to your God, to My father and your Father. Cling to this! Be ye reconciled to ekienos, be joined and receive the sweet union given to us in Christ Jesus from before the foundations of the ages. Ekienos.
Christ didn’t have to do something that wasn’t done. He didn’t have to become something He wasn’t for He is the same yesterday today and forever. He had to walk it out for us so that we could follow Him to the Father. “Father if there is any other way?  Jesus the man walked it out for us only. For you cannot add or take away from eternity, you can only partake in Him, and everything eternal is “in Him”. Ekienos saw humanity blind and disarray and said “Whom shall We send, whom shall go for us?” They sent the  Son.
I pray that you know and understand that when the Lord says “come my people enter your chambers” He is not talking about a place where feet can go, but this place we have been talking about. This place we receive when the Son is ascended and seated. Not that he wasn’t for He said Father restore to me the Glory I had before. He set it aside.
I have talked about what I have seen and told you what I have heard. Um, I mean we talk about what we have seen and we tell you what we hear. Ekienos and our unity in the plurality of God “in Christ”.
John 14.21 In “that day” you will know that I am in the Father and you in Me and I in you. This is “that day”. Today! If you will hear His voice.

THE MISSING LINK FOUND

THE MISSING LINK FOUND

The topic of the missing link has been a hotly contested in the scientific community for over a hundred years to try and confirm the theory of evolution, the mutation of a species from amoebae to fish to reptile, bird, insect, to mammals and man to what? Some hope a new evolution and a new humanity.

It is funny that they are looking for a link between monkey and man but there are hundreds if not thousands of missing links between all the species. A missing link would be a thing of dual natures.  As much time that has been spent looking for “the missing link” there is a missing link that has been over looked in the debate. That is the God man known as Jesus or Yeshua. This God man was equally man and God, not being part man and part God but being fully man and fully God. The first in the New humanity.

Here is the split in creations which is the fall of man having a  broken relationship with God. Hence the need for a representative of man and a representative from God. And if he was not  both natures He could not fairly represent either one. Similarly the purpose of our whole political system. The governed and the government. The electorate and the elected and the lobbyist. Everyone wants to be heard, understood and acted fairly upon. The courts and the Judge, the prisoner and prisons. Judgement, arbitration and retribution. To arbitrate fairly on behalf of the warring creations. For the spirit wars against the flesh and the flesh wars against the spirit so Jesus was called the son of God and the son of man qualifying his ability to do just that.
He is our advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous, He who is also described as our “mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus”. For him to represent us He has to be one of us. He had to come from our trenches not just as a spectator but in total experience. He who in the days of His flesh, offered up prayers for us with sobbing and weeping. He could not have done this without being one of us. His compassion touched every level of pain we could experience and more. For “He by the grace of God tasted death for every man”.Why? So we wouldn’t have to. For on Him was laid the inequity of us all and by His stripes we are healed. For it pleased the Father to bruise Him for our sake.
The Father the Son and the Holy Spirit talked of this great gulf between our species and formulated the plan of salvation. From Isaiah 6, whom shall go, who shall we sent from us?” We know Him who’s goings forth were of old to everlasting, being from eternity past to eternity future, Christ the same yesterday today and forever, the forever man, the man who also was God, the one necessary to save all of mankind. He who was the propitiation for the whole world.
This is the only missing link that is not a perversion, a genetically modified hybrid. He is the one and only link between a species. Without Him humanity would be forever lost. Who is worthy to open the scroll and to remove the seals (to reveal the New Creation)? Behold the lion from the tribe of Judah. Then they beheld the lamb as though it had been slain and He then came and took the scroll. Having expired all the pictures that preserved humanity, God sent the Son and rescued it. The Son did what all the law and the prophets could not do. He provided a baptism that exceeded the baptism of Moses. He was the true waters and He was the rock that was smote. He was the true manna. He was the red heifer. He was the sacrifice lamb, He was the lamb sent into the wild. He was every message ever displayed by the old ways and then having expired them. “Lo I have come in the volume of the book to do thy will”.  He set them on a shelf for our perusal. God who in times past spoke to the fathers by pictures and parables has in these last days spoken by His Son. They are fulfilled in the life of Christ.
 The point here is that all the law and the prophets were attempts to get believers to cross over in species, to become a born from above new creation. It wasn’t that it was not offered before Christ, it was not easily understood so the road had to be widened and made straight as was prophesied of John the Baptist, “make straight the ways of the Lord”. If there had been a law or a prophecy that worked Christ would not have come. “Father if there is any other way” And having provided several attempts we now look to the God man. For all other attempts were pictures for us on whom the end of the age has come. They spoke not for themselves but for us about the grace of God. For the law was by Moses but grace and truth by Jesus Christ.
The prophets searched of what manner of time the Spirit of Christ who was in them, testifying of the sufferings of Christ and the Glories that would follow. We who believe are those Glories that follow. He was the first fruit and we are a kind of first fruit of His creation. That is the new creation. So we too are these missing links severally being members of His body the fullness of Him who fills all and all.
Those of old pictured the Passover lamb where death invisibly passes over like for us. Which was also continuously re-stated in the sacrifices by burning the skin and the carcass “outside the camp”. This was all finished in Christ as He received the burning judgment of all from the Almighty God on our behalf.
Those of old were provided the picture of baptism with Noah’s flood and crossing the Red Sea, crossing the Jordan, and  with John the baptist as well as others. These all taught not the putting off of the filth of the flesh put an answer of a clear conscience.They pointed to the serpent on a pole which is Christ on the cross as an event past, which gave them passage into the future. They were all to do this by faith as are we. To enter the very presence of God. “There remains a rest to the people of God for he who has entered his rest has ceased from his works as God did”. To be with Him where He is as Christ prayed.
And if Christ said it we can do it. And having put off the old man by faith we do. Paul’s words from Romans, walk in newness of life. We have to “recon ourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ”. And since the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead has already quickened your mortal body by His Spirit who dwells in you. For as many as are led by this Spirit of God, these are the sons of God”. These are first fruits bearing His likeness being several copies of the missing link. As He is, so are we in this world. We being transformed (2 Cor 3.18) being metamorphosed by His Spirit by looking at the Glory we become Glory, being the Glories that would follow. 1 Peter 1.11.  Romans 8. 30 For whom He for knew these He also called and whom He called these He justified and these He justified He also Glorified.
                                                               Our New Citizenship
We are card carrying members of the Kingdom of God. Not written with binary code on a magnetic strip on a piece of plastic, but having the word of God written on our circumcised hearts with the finger of God. We are the true Israel of God.  As plastic credit cards allows privileges in society our citizenship is heaven and we have certain privileges. From Galatians 6.15, What avails heaven, or grants access now for us is this new creation in us. We can now go boldly to the throne of Grace anytime. We can go in and out and find (food) pasture anytime. We have a city whose gates are always open to it’s citizens (fellowship). A place where there is no day or night, no sun or moon, but the lamb is it’s light, for He is the true light that has come into the world. Where those who are sorcerers, murders, and idolaters and whoever loves a lie cannot enter. Where flesh and blood cannot inherit this kingdom. Where those who through faith can go.
                                               Hebrews 12.22-24 paraphrase.
For we have come to Mount Zion,the city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem, to the general assembly, to the called out ones, the firstborn, those who are registered in heaven, to God the judge of all, to the place of just men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator between God and men with the New Covenant being in force because the blood was already spilled which the blood of Abel testified of.
               The False Gospel of Another Day. One yet in the future.
You cannot partake of this Kingdom if in your mind it is yet future. That  if you believe that Christ still  has to fulfill Danial 9 and finish transgression, make an end of sacrifice and sin, that He must seal vision and prophesy and anoint the Most Holy. If you dwell these having to be completed in the end times and eschatology you are not entering in. Like the Pharisees who thought the kingdom would appear, Christ said to them “you are not entering My Kingdom and you are not allowing those who are trying to do so either. Of those leaders He said “it is better for you to be tied off with a millstone and drowned then for you to offend any of my little ones. You are a denier of the true Christ and offer a counterfeit kingdom in Satan”s realm. Satan showed Christ all the kingdoms throughout time and offered them to Him. Christ rejected them, all of them. And again with His words “My kingdom is not of this age” meaning of the creation of emc=square, big bang of time and matter.
The word of God is not constrained but our thinking is. He is looking for those to worship Him in not in earthly Jerusalem but in Spirit and truth now. His Kingdom is found “In Christ” The lack of thinking in faith keeps people out. The carnal mind is a veil that blinds us to His Reality. Or is it to be fulfilled in our lifetime? At any point in time? In this age at all? If you answered yes the god of this age has blinded you and robbed you of your reward, your inheritance. To be “In Christ” is to grow in understanding of Him and His Kingdom. The one that “Is at hand” now. “Do not seal this book for the time is at hand!” Rev 22.10.  At Hand today and 2000 years ago.
Paul begged those who were in Corinth to understand this. We are ambassadors from Christ as though God was pleading through us because of the work of Christ. The heralding call was “be ye reconciled to God”. To be one with, at-one-ment. Like Adam and Eve before the fall. As workers together do not receive the grace of God for an unfruitful purpose. For God says “In an acceptable time I have heard, and of the day of salvation? I have helped. Behold now is the accepted time! Now is the day of salvation! Why in the world do we look for a second coming as though that is the solution? The great doctor has seen our illness and our affliction and has given us the diagnosis, the treatment and the solution. Him who spoke a word and the lame walked has spoken to us and  It is not the second coming. For on Him was laid the chastisement for us all and by His stripes ye are healed. When did that happen? The new covenant is in effect and is only for the new creation,
There cannot be a king without a kingdom or He is just a dreamer. And this kingdom has a capitol city and a time. In this case anytime you are able to accept it by faith. Then you would be citizens of a holy nation of Kings and priests if you have been there. Are we not seated in Heaven according to His word? Then as ambassadors from that place we too offer the same invitation as our Lord. Repent, believe the Gospel. The Kingdom of God is At Hand. Enter into the true union and full blessings “In Christ”.
 Welcome home:)
