The ruler of this world has been judged. (John 16.11)
God does not dwell in symbols or things made of man’s devising. There are no man-made cities Societies or structures that are pleasing to God . But for the God of this age they are. And it is with these counterfeits that he steals the affections of the hearts of people who have rejected the cross of the Christ to implement other gods for them to be condemned, and Satan will fill full his role. He is the God of the vacuum. This is “the one who is coming is according to Satan with all lying signs and wonders with all lying signs and wonders if possible to deceive the elect”.
This is a duplication of the things people are associated with God through symbols, including the old Covenant. They reject “The Kingdom of God at hand” for another. Christ said “Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.” (Mt 16.23)
The Kingdom of God is at hand” does not mean it is eminent. It means Gods Kingdom is operational and active even now.
There are so many distractions from the faith and in the faith that it is easy to be distracted and get on tangents. There are many false and partial gospels to get caught up in.
Warning! Anything that stops you short of the conclusion of Gods work in you now, is to be partially saved and held in limbo. Even as Paul said “I seek to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of me”. So we must persist for the same cause lest we fall short of the grace of God. Paul also said “do not let anybody rob you of your reward”. You must learn to apprehend it. To “lay hold” of it.
John 16.8 concurs. The Holy Spirit comes “to reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see (again) me no more (in a carnal way);
11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.” Meaning convicted and incarcerated to the will of God.
“We are complete in Him who is head over all powers and principalities”. There is nothing else, and no one else who completes us. You can fortify yourself against the objects of your fears, but they are still there. There is only one true consolation. The fear of dying is the enemy. Fear is the poison that kills spiritual growth. Death is not so much a one time event of being dead, but a life driven by fear, that causes one to be dead to the provisions from God, gifted to us by His promises in His Son, to be truly free from all fears because “he who fears has not been made perfect in love because fear involves torment”. That’s the fruit given to those who reject Gods covenental provisions. So they turn to the world for comfort and forget the One who is in control.
We see the effects of fear in the parable of the unjust steward who collected funds from his employers accounts to protect himself against joblessness homelessness and fortify his retirement. He said “4 I have resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses”. He was afraid to be without so He created a back-up plan, a retirement plan. This is the product of self-consciousness. We see a brick wall and we don’t know what is on the other side so we protect ourselves against this fear. “He who seeks to save his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for Christ sake will save it”. This is what we are talking about. When you run to the end of your account avigo it is expired. However we can never deplete the resources of the almighty God who said “let there be light” and immediate it appeared without resistance.
There are many who pursue to save the planet and are ignorant of Him who can recreate this with the same simple words. They spend their time and their estimation doing whst they think is good when the good that they do is ignorance of him who did it all.
Romans 1 says of these people 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. Creation serves the creator just fine even now by mirroring to humans the conditions of their hearts.
“If you understand Gods never ending love, and his inexhaustible resources, you can relax your grip on this age and fall into the hands of the almighty God who eagerly awaits you to do so. God said “I will never leave you or forsake you”. But some just cannot have solace in that. So they depart to look for another. This is spiritual adultery that causes blindness to Him who is “at hand”.
So speaking of the wise steward”For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light.9 “And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by unrighteous[d]mammon, that when[e]you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home.”
Fear is the abscence of faith. Your faith has trade in value. But you must let go of your fears to recieve the exchange. If you truly trust God, you don’t need a dependance on a back-up plan. He who said “I will never leave you or forsake you” need not come back in the flesh a second time as a man to fulfill His Word in us. We are complete in Him, if you can receive it. The price was paid at the cross to reverse the curse and undo the fear based mind that started with Adam who said to the Lord “I heard your voice and was afraid”. God knew this would happen. Adam tried to cover it with a fig leaf, and people today are covering themselves with all kinds of things. But the words of job was, Naked I came naked I go, blessed be the name of the Lord.
The truth is God sees through all of our fig leaves and coverings anyway. For the word of the Lord is sharp and Powerful sharper than any two-edged sword dividing even bone and Marrow joints and ligaments it is a discerner of the thoughts of the intent of the heart. Then there is nothing hidden from the site with him with whom we have to do. Hebrews 4:12.
You cannot be afraid and trusting God at the same time. Consider the old women who donated her two mites, or in our culture, pennies. That was all she physically had, but for us the elect? She truly trusted in God and was spoken of for our guidepost. Not that God is asking us to live without money, but not to put too much trust in the uncertainty of riches.
The day we have the most money, in the day we have none should be equally joyous. Like the Widow with the two mites, she knew that the greatest joy comes Not from without but from within. Just as it said it’s in the book of James That every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of Lights in whom there is no variableness nor shadow of turning.
Even now, The Kingdom of God is at hand.
If you are still looking to the Physical Realm and planet Earth for the manifestation of the kingdom of God you are going to be sorely disappointed. Why? Because “Eye Has Not Seen Nor Ear heard of the things that God has prepared for those who love him, but God has revealed them to us by his spirit.”
In today’s news there’s much talk about Israel and the Promised Land. But what is “The Promise Land”? And what is “Israel” according to the Bible? After all, isn’t it the scriptures that define this?
In Exodus 4.22 The Lord spoke to Moses saying “Israel is My son, My firstborn.” So we ask, is that Israel really God’s firstborn son? The answer is no, not that one. That old Israel only depicted and mimicked things that are invisible “in Christ”.
To be in “the promised land” and “in Israel”, and “in Christ” are all synonymous terms describing the same thing.
15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation. 16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.” Showing for us here precisely who Israel is. That we the elect are in the Promised Land, in Israel and “In Christ” of God and not a place on earth, but anywhere two or more are gathered in His name.
We who are “in Christ” are in the fulfillment of all that was written and spoken of both the old and the new covenants. These things belong solely to us who are “in Christ” the true Israel of God and Gods only begotten son. You need not look for another.
Scripture says of Christ that “in Him dwells the fullness of the God head body, and we are complete in Him who is the head of all powers and principalities and principalities”. Another physical Israel on earth only obscures the truth.
The Kingdom of God is at hand. Amen.

We know them who said “let Us make man in our image and likeness”. Then they, the plurality of God, proceeded to make them male and female. They wanted us to know Them that way, male and female.
When we get to Christ’s discourse about the heavenly family in John 14-16 we draw upon this truth from the creation account. “Male and female made He them in His image”. God has all the male and female attributes in Himself, and creation reflects this in a man in women who are wed saying “for this reason a man shall leave home and cleave to His Bride. As we will demonstrate, Christ is this.
Here are some words you need to understand from the Greek to understand the Bride of Christ.
In the book of John, Christ said that He would not leave us orphans, that He would send “another comforter and helper”. Someone like Him but not Him. She is in all respects complimentary to Him. Unless you think there are 3 men ruling from Heaven. Then God would only be male.
This other helper like Adam had Eve. Not Himself but one like Him, meaning bone of His bone and Flesh of His flesh, in composition and design similar to Him of non-matter before creation spirit and truth. That He would send this “comforter”, whom the “world can neither see or know, but you will know Her for she will be with you and in you”. Some of us call Her “The Unction of God”. 1 John 2.20
Here we have the hierarchy of the family of God and the parents of those who are “in Christ” and born of them. If we look at them in the Greek it takes on a fuller meaning. The English translators committed a huge blunder.
This is the first part in a series that deal with these obscurities in the English translations from the Greek and Hebrew scriptures. Here is the Bride of Christ, Heavenly Jerusalem, our Mother. Galatians 4.26
Para-klete means comforter. Para means “over arching” like a parachute. Klete comes from klesia which is plural. Klete is singular over klesia.
Klesia means the called. Ek means out. Ek-klesia means “the called out”. This is what the translators call “church”. Forget this word for now. The Holy Spirit in the other parent, Mother and comforter called the Para-klete over Her brood the Elect, those who are “the called”.
This comforter/helper comes from the Greek word “parakleetos” which is from the word “parakleesis” meaning comfort, consolation and exhortation. The “parakleetos’ is the one that brings comfort, consolation, and exhortation. It is actions of the parakleetos that brings comfort to the “ekleesia”. We have the giver, the gift and the receiver of the gift. We have the Motherer of the Eklesia/church.
in Christ as are we. The church is not the bride of Christ, the Holy Spirit is. There is nothing on earth or time and matter that is of the right design and composition to qualify being the bride but Her. It is not 3 men in heaven ruling mankind.
We know Them who said “let Us make man in Our image and Our likeness”. Then They, the plurality of God, proceeded to make man, and split him in half, male and female. They wanted us to know Them that way, male and female. So They created Adam and Eve.
It wasn’t so much that they were split, but they were turned inside out for our understanding. This is why it was said they were naked. They were exposed. They were splayed open for us to see. Because of this we can know some things about the Godhead, in the images of male and female, because Adam and Eve portray some things that are otherwise hidden from us. Even as Adam did not know Eve when she was inside of him. So God revealed her to him through the sleep. So too the Bride of Christ is hidden from carnal perceptions.
To us who understand? We are now awakened to these Eternal realities. We have put the two halves back together to experience the greater realities of God kept secret from the foundations of the world. This is “that which is from the beginning”. We call The the Bride and The Bridegroom from scripture. This is the wedding invitation of the Lamb and his bride.
Now let’s look at Her as the Mother.
In the book of John, Christ said that He would not leave us orphans, meaning parent-less. That He would send “another helper”. Like Adam had a helper, Christ has a helper. His counterpart and other parent is female. She is “bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh, in composition and design. Similar to Christ of pre-matter existence, of the before creation elements of spirit and truth as being “the same yesterday, today and forever”. They share each others attributes. They are the original male and female that Adam and Eve dimly depicted when they were turned inside out. But She will not be exposed in the same way as Eve. Because Her composition predates creation, and she cannot be carnally known with the physical senses, She can only be made known by revelation.
The original pieces of God were seen working together for creation as described in these scriptures. “In the beginning was the word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” “and “Then God said, let there be light. And the spirit of God brooded over the face of the deep.” She now broods over the face of the deep and darkened soul awaiting their arrival to these eternal, unchangeable realities. This truth precede and supersedes all of the creation that is common to the senses of carnal man. And because God is not carnal, Eve had to be extracted from Adam for him to “know her” and for us to be known too. Scripture says “Adam knew Eve and bore a son”. We similarly are born again by knowing.
When God spoke, the pre-spoken Word came forth from the proverbial mouth of God, coupled along with His breath called the Holy Spirit. This was the first split Adam and Eve portrayed. Like when we speak word and breath comes out also. These are the male and female components of God.
We are like God in this way. Which is why we “shall be judged by every word we utter”. Our words are more of who we are than the clothes we put on and our titles we work for. Our words reflect something of our invisible part we call the heart. God’s Son was birthed from the beginning in this way. This is why “He is the Firstborn over all creation”.
The Greek word for spirit and breath is “pneuma”. It is the same word. This is what qualifies the masculine of God called Word, to be wed with the feminen of God called the Holy Spirit. And because God was male and female before creation, Christ must contain the female as well to be the fullness of the Godhead body. For this same reason any true born again, begotten of the Father must have both parents as well for the scripture to be true in us to affirm that “We are complete in Him” and “of His fullness we have received” equal parts of Spirit and Word. In this way we partake of the thoughts of God, and the things that are His from before creation of things “from the beginning”.
For Christ to be called “the only begotten of the Father” and be the correct image of the Father, He had to contain male and female in order to be able to reproduce. Because man alone without his insides re-attached serves only half the image of God. This is why we are invited to “The Wedding Feast”of Gods Son saying “The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son. Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways”. What about you? Are you ready? Then read on.
In the beginning God split His image called Adam in two by removing a rib called eve. For This reason the two shall become one to mend that tear. Adam was half the man of Christ. Christ was the one to mend that tear by combining the halves of male and female to qualify as the full, mended image of God.
That is why He is the only begotten and true representation of God. In Christ both halves are restored to each other to remain forever. John 1.33
The Spirit and the Word are the only ones that came from God, being made up of His invisible elements of spirit and truth. They being joined together equally are God. They are the ones that said “let us make man in our image, male and female. They together are both co-creators that pre-exist all created things being products of the mind of the Father.
It was not so much the adom was split or the man Adam that was split to implement creation, but the word and spirit. Word defines the solids, the spirit fills expanses. And it is as they are married, and united together in us, that starts our new association, being born again of this the New creation. Which is not really new in the sense of having never been before. But new, in that it never gets old. It remains in its newness of eternal gloryThis too is a contrast for our learning, like light and dark.
It is the created things that present the contrasts that started with the distinction of light and dark that were given to sharpen our understanding. But “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all”. And “we walk in the light as He is in the light” and we see Them as They are. This is how we become like them now and not at some mysterious 2nd coming. (1 John 3) You transfigure and transform by staring at This. 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transfigured into the self same image from the glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” in the here and now.
It is those of us being born by the Word and by the Spirit of God that are “a kind of first-fruits of his creation” now, being born of Them by “the incorruptible word of God that goes on forever”. The Word carries with it Gods genetic, predisposition that we put on and become.
Are we not taught to “put on Christ”? Because “in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body (Which includes Her), and you are complete in Him” if you have received Them, male and female, in their natural pre-carnate reality.
If you have not received God in his likeness male and female. Then you have not received His fullness, but only half. There are still some things you don’t understand. Do not despair though. She is still brooding.
We then are his children and the elect of God being remade in His image by adopting His Word and His Spirit. We are perfected and completed in this way “We are a new creation in Christ”. (2nd Corinthians 5:17)
Christ said “He who keeps My word and My words abide in you, then Me and the Father will come to you and make our home in you” and so They do.
We then are the Elect having both halves reunited in ourselves, having received His word and His Spirit. Both parents are with us.
This is how we participated in the Marriage Feast of the Lamb and His Bride. We receive both halves and are born. Our parents are in us, male and female, Word and Spirit. that is why scripture says, that which is Ennis is greater than that which is in thethat i in the world, and so they are. Christ said he would not leave us orphans?That he would leave us another comforter and his helper And he didn’t, so we have both parents.
We believe the witness of the last prophet, John the Baptist, and agree that “the Holy Spirit descended like a dove from Heaven”, to unite with Christ and to abide with Him forever. Only forever beings can do this. This union is the wedding of Christ and His Bride. Thus is to happen in each one of us. We receive them as They are and become like them. In this way “we are complete in Him who is the head of all powers and principalities”. Yes that “of His fullness we have received”.
We share John’s testimony that said “29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. 30 they (male and female) who come from above are above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all. 32 And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; and no (carnal) one receives His testimony. (Because it is Heavenly and not carnal) 33 He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true.” (John 3.29+) Note here. They were not described as pre-married fiancé. This is the wedding feast we are called to participate in. The wedding ks a foregone conclusion.
So let us continue to adopt the truth about our Parents. Even as Paul said that “Heavenly Jerusalem is the Mother of us all”. We are “the all”. Heavenly Jerusalem is not a future reality but a concurring, meaning continually occurring and ubiquitous reality in spirit and truth. John 4. 21-24
If you are waiting for a new Jerusalem to appear on planet earth, you are missing out on this spectacular event. You are not born from above. You are in limbo.
It is us that adopt the Holy Word and the Holy Spirit that are now called saints. A word that means “holy ones” and invisible ones. Even as the Lord commanded “be ye holy as I am holy”. There is no other way than to adopt Them, so They adopt us into the family of God. That is why we can say like Paul “now we are citezines, members and saints of the household of God.” The wait is over. It is not a carnal event to witness on planet earth. Sven as tge spirit descended from Heaven onto christ, Heavenly Jerusalem descends on us the same way. (Revelation 21.10)
It is as we adopt them that we are bone of their bone and flesh of their flesh, in composition and design similar to them being spirit and truth of sound doctrine and perfect understanding.
The Kingdom of God is at hand in this way. The Bride has made Herself ready as the Bride come down from God. The King is male, the Kingdom is female. Christ’s Kingdom is not of this age. She is from before time whose home and our calling is in God.
This is “Heavenly Jerusalem our Mother” (Galatians 4.26. This is how “The Kingdom of God is at hand”.
Christ said in the Book of John that he would send His comforter and helper, the other parent so that you are not left an orphan, “whom the world can neither see or know” “but you will know, for She will be in you.
Why does the world not know Her? Because She is not of a construct of things familiar to the carnal senses of sight and sound but is in all ways similar to Christ in spirit and truth
So we must receive Them as not of the world, or They present false concepts of Themselves and become liars. Even as Christ said “I go away to the Father and you see me no more”. Like things of time and matter. This They are not. Christ said His Kingdom is not of this age, so His helper, other parent is not of this age either.
Space is not the final frontier, but the spirit is. And you must be born again of the spirit to explore and retain the things that are here. This is why Christ said of the spirit, that the world cannot know it.
Those of the world can only know things that associate with the carnal senses. They interpretation scripture in a physical way and carnal the spirit is not. They are to be spiritually discerned.
When Christ said “The Kingdom of God is at hand, this is what He was talking about. This is why He could say “I am with you throughout the ages” because He is elementally superior. He is not bound by time and matter. Matter and time is bound by Him. “All things are held together by the power of His word. He is before all things, and by Him all things consist”.
In Him we have the hierarchy of the Godhead and the parents of those who are “in Christ” and born of those Parents. If we look at Them in the Greek text, we have a clearer understanding.
The English translators committed a huge blunder here by interpreting some text about the Godhead as being purely masculine. Like the helper, the comforter and other parent called “the Holy Spirit. The English translators view of the Godhead as strictly masculine is in error for God made man male and female like Himself. Both halves are equally important.
The translaters view is totally in-congruent with the law of “kind begat after their own kind from male and female” defined from the beginning. Even with Noahs ark, only animals male and female were allowed in the ark. All others were marked as an abomination and washed away by the flood. How then can God not also have the female inside Him?
So for the Godhead to produce offspring their must be a male and a female to accomplish this. Unless you believe there are 3 men ruling from Heaven. Then he would have made mankind in His image male and male, or some other abominable thing. But that doesn’t jive with the rest of creation which is manufactured and Governed by the Creator. Creation serves the creator. The only thing satan rules is the rebelious and ignorant thinking. But even this is held in check by God like the seas and the stars. Satan has his dominion in the darkened mind of those who and have abandoned their God given logic and fall head first to the place with no bottom.
So the earth and all its works are held together now by the same word that created them for His glory, which is His work in us as we receive His glory. This is us who reflect His image and proof we are His. We are His offspring. There are no boogie men here in the light. All fear is gone. All enemies are put under foot.
Now back to our topic. The comforter/helper comes from the Greek word “parakletos”. Broken down, “Kletos” is one who calls and summons others to come for consolation. That is what the Holy Spirit does. She provides teaching, exhortation and comfort to those who are called the “ekklisia” which the translators use the misleading word “church” instead. Christ said “the Holy Spirit will come and teach you all things regarding Me. The Holy Spirit will take what is mine and manifest it to you”. She breaks down the things of Christ into sound bites of word for our mental and spiritual consumption. As being the other helper, She supports Her head.
This is why we are instructed to “be renewed in the spirit of our mind”. (Rom 12) And that word “renewed” in the Greek is metamorphisis and where the word “transfiguration” comes from. That’s right! That is where our transfiguration takes place. In the spirit of our minds, in the here and now. This is our Galgatha, our deliberation in the skull.
So the Parakleetos is the Holy Spirit, Teacher and other Parent and Mother so that you are not orphans. In this way we fulfill the verse that says “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror (God’s Holy Writ) the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. This is what She does. She takes God’s Son called Word, and feeds these morsals to our mind for our transfiguration to be Word. The same image as the only begotten.
The Holy Spirit is the Bride of Christ and the Mother, comforter, nuturer and helper who helps raise us into their likeness, by the glory to the glory by Her efforts. 2 Corinthians 3.18
So let’s look at Their offspring.
“Ekklisia” from the Greek to English is translation into the word “church” and conveys false limitations. Correctly rendered to English means “the called out ones”. These are souls filled with Gods spirit, of people assembled for God and not buildings. “Wherever 2 or more are gathered in My name, there am I” says the Lord. This is the correct image of church and not a physical building, because “now we are members of the household of God having been built upon the foundation of the apostles and the prophet Jesus Christ the Chief cornerstone. And we are living stones being built a habitation of God in the spirit. This building has no physical members structures or foundations.
Here is the breakdown of “the called” being the “ekklisia.
“Ek” means “out”, “klesia” means “the called” hence “the called out ones” is the correct translation, not church. It is a people,not a building. It is us who hear this heavenly calling. We are called out of Adam to be “in Christ”. We trade the old for the new. This is “The New Creation” different than the old in both composition and design and humanly incomprehensibly greater.
We no longer need to associate with a sin nature but a righteous one. Which is why John said that those who know Christ? That they “are righteous even as He is righteous” because we are born again that way. Or from Paul. Through one man’s sin, many are sinful. How much more through the one man Christ are many righteous” speaking of our New association and inheritance rendered effective at the cross. We put this on. We clothed in what He wears and in this way “even the angels behold the face of the Heavenly Father in each of these little ones.
“Para” means expanding over. Like in the English word “parachute”. And it is what the “Para-klete” does. Para-klete is the Greek word for comforter. She calls us to Herself and broods over us, the “ek-lesia” and “called out ones”. Her goal is our total saturation of the things of God to be godly. To be a God-like-ness. Not to replace God, or become God, but to participate in the Fullness of God.
It is the attention of the “Parakletos” given to the “eklisia” that forms the family of God. We are found “in Her” as we are found “in Christ” because She is “in Christ”. We who are hidden in Christ see the things that are hidden there, and we see Her. Some are under Her but not accepting Her “in Christ” they miss out on this wedding feast in this way.
So we can understand the Holy Spirit is the “Parakletos” in a picture of a mother hen brooding over her chick. The chicks are “the ekklisia” those who are called . Which is why the Holy Spirit in Christ said “oh Jerusalem, how I would’ve gathered you as a hen gathers her chicks, but you were not willing”. She was “calling” but they were not listening to “the call”. They were not of “the called”. They refused Her voice. Having ears to hear and eyes to see, they heard and saw nothing. For it is with the heart one must see in here to understand the things of God. Can you hear “the call”? Are you “the called” of God? Would you like to join the Wedding Feast? The parable says “Come! All things are now ready” Matthew 22
For we know Them who said, let Us make man in Our image and in our Likeness, male and female made He them. We know Them because They are our Parents. We are in Them and They are in us. We are the elect of God, his offspring.
The King and His Kingdom are at hand. Within our grasp. “And all are pressing in”.
