“Birthed into His Presence”

The seventh month had arrived and among the children of Israel, a change from their daily routine was beginning to take place. All the activities of a normal day of life were changing because a new sound began coming forth to affect them. Suddenly, “trumpets” began to sound out that a time had arrived for them to become a holy convocation before God. This speaks of doing no customary work of the normal day, but to offer up an offering to be consumed by fire, unto the Lord. The blowing of this trumpet was a memorial that was to take place once every year. However, we should also note that something different would happen after each forty-nine-year cycle, when on the fiftieth year another increased event would take place.

This increased event, coming ten days into the same month on the fiftieth year, and following the “sounding of trumpets”, it was another special day called the Day of Atonement, but now with the year of jubilee. This day was also a day when the normal day’s activities were set aside from, not only a Sabbath day, but also a call that was to affect the souls of men. Here they were invited to humble themselves before God and worship Him alone. This, God’s “Day of Atonement” speaks of a time of reconciliation for the guilty by divine intervention and sacrifice. God commanded this feast for divine forgiveness and restoration, the results of the sacrifice that was given.

While the children of Israel were to respond and participate in these yearly feasts, with ever seventh year being a year of Sabbath rest, another certain day was coming which would surpass all the other seventh year Day of Atonements. Again, as with the other forty-nine yearly Day of Atonements the trumpet would sound throughout the land, but now the blowing of the trumpets would sound out on the tenth day of the seventh month during this fiftieth year. Every vessel throughout the land of Israel would begin to hear this sound has they responded with joy knowing that a sound of liberty had finally come for all the needing inhabitants. This was a day of excitement, because the trumpets proclamation of liberty was to those who had lost their inheritance, with many becoming servants or slaves somewhere during the prior forty-nine-year period, mostly because of indebtedness and other humbling reasons. This trumpet also meant that a people would be restored to their inherited lands, that which had been lost was now to be returned to them, which means a returning of the land (pointing to a time of resurrection) back to its original purpose.

Lev. 25:9-10 & 13, “Then you shall cause the trumpet of Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land. And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you: and each of you shall return to his possessions, and each of you shall return to his family. … In this year of Jubilee, each of you shall return to his possessions”. This is speaking to us and pointing to a time when all that man lost, because of man’s fall, all the way back to the first Adam, is to be repossessed. This includes liberty to those enslaved with all lost property restored to the original owner. Included is the remitting of all debt to the indebted, rest was restored to the land. In all this, it is important for us to see clearly that this year of Jubilee, the Day of Atonement, is but a figure of the mission of Christ, whose head Jesus, with His body that consist of many members.

God has chosen a priesthood ministry, as revealed through Jesus Christ, who know their complete fulfillment in the completed Christ. This Christ includes Jesus the Head with His many member body. Thus, a revealed understanding is now being given that a season of Jubilee is again sounding out for that purpose. This sounding out, even as proclaimed in Isa. 61:1-3, is pointing to a many member Christ, anointed for its complete fulfillment. “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified”.

In this, Jesus Christ became the head of His body, which now is to include a body of people consisting of many members. These many members shall likewise follow Him into that holy priesthood of God. This people are the chosen of God and they are to be His light in this darkened world. 1 Peter 2:9, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light”.

Let us now consider the chain of events that take place involving the High Priest on this Day of Atonement. (Read Heb. 9:1-7). We need to see the importance of that piece of furniture in the holy place called the Altar of Incense. This Altar of Incense (spoken of with the golden censer) is the article of transition, the piece of furniture that is taken from the Holy place into the Holy of Holies of the tabernacle on this day of Atonement. This is pointing to an overcoming company of sons who shall enter in corporately with Jesus our High Priest as this altar (the censer) moves beyond the veil, the Holy of Holies.

This moving altar is the fulfillment of the Day of Atonement, which is drawing near and is even now upon us. Here we speak of a time of complete restoration and the birthing of God’s man-child, the results of the year of Jubilee. This birthing involves a continual maturing process that begins in the Outer court, then a work of sanctification throughout the Holy place realm. Then, to finally know a complete birthing into the presence of God. This is a birthing, a standing in God’s Holy of Holies, His throne-room glory. Herein this overcoming people stand in the throne-room authority of God to receive from Him the fullness, the restoration of their inheritance, to finally know the reality of the Feast of Tabernacles.

Is this the reason that creation groans today? Are not these many sons of God even now hearing the trumpet sounding out their year of Jubilee Atonement wherein a birthing is taking place unto its completeness? Rom. 8:18-23, “For I consider that the sufferings of the present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly awaits the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope [the Holy place is that realm of hope], because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body”.

In all these things, the trumpets, the moving of the Altar of Incense (golden censer) and the standing before God in the Holy of Holies is drawing for us a picture of the complete fulfillment of God’s spiritual Day of Atonement and the Year of Jubilee, the birthing of a people into the Feast of Tabernacles. Let’s now consider the fact that Jesus Christ, the head of Christ’ many member body, has become the fulfiller of all these events. In fulfilling these events, He now sets with God in His throne-room authority releasing the fulfillment of these events in and throughout His body (the Feast of Tabernacles). Thus, we have times and seasons established by God for such fulfillment. Where are we, God’s people now and what season are we in? While the Children of Israel followed and became the expression of these natural events, and with the church having received His divine order for the spiritual expression of Christ, that is those who have receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit for sanctification, what is next?

Could it not be said, that the women church is likened unto a spiritual womb and has, in union with Christ in the holy place, became pregnant and is now being brought to a time of delivery? With this being a truth, God’s true church is now in the season of her delivery. It is now time for her man-child, as revealed in Rev. twelfth chapter, to know his birthing. This birthing shall change the course of this world and affect all who dwell upon it.

God’s Year of Jubilee is the season that is now come upon us. This speaks that trumpets are beginning to sound as a people, those hearing these sounding trumpets (God’s true sounding ministry), are responding to fulfill this event. This means for us that God’s first-fruits are becoming the fulfilled expression of this Altar of Incense. This has the meaning for us in that these first-fruits are now making the final response needed to birth such a man-child. These freely are positioned upon the altar, much like Abraham’s son Isaac, to remove the old fallen nature and move totally into the nature of the risen Christ. That is, the sacrifice that God supplies in our place, the lamb slain before the foundation of the world, has been totally accepted by God and is being fulfilled in Christ many member body.

With God’s trumpets, His true ministry, now sounding throughout the earth, the Altar of Incense is on the move. Along with the High Priest, Jesus Christ, this Altar of Incense birthing is moving them into the Holy of Holies, into the presence of the Almighty God. This same first-fruits company, those who have willingly died to self upon the Altar of Incense are birthed into God’s presence. This is speaking of a spiritual birthing into a new dimension with God as these now stand in God’s throne-room authority. A people with the nature of Christ because of resurrection’s power that replaces the fallen nature of Adam. The Christ nature in this new creation is now to minister and establish the kingdom of God unto all the earth.

The outcome of this throne-room authority means that the kingdom of Babylon, which has established itself throughout the earth, is to know destruction. Who and what are these modern-day Babylonian kingdoms. They are the political, economic, educational and carnal religious kingdoms that seek to rule over all the earth. However, because of the ministry of these man-child authorities, the throne room of God dwellers, Babylon and all it consist of shall fall. Rev. 18:2-5, “And he cried 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! For all 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 abundance of her luxury. 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. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities”.

The time for the Day of Atonement and year of Jubilee has come and a sounding out of the trumpets is blowing throughout the land. Unto those who are hearing and responding to this trumpet sound, this movement is taking place. This is a movement into another realm of God, which declares and manifest that a new birthing and it’s reality has taking place. Now this man-child, birthed unto God, is moved by the Spirit into the presence of God. Herein, in God’s presence, this new creation man is becoming a people who now dwell in God’s throne-room authority, which is a moving from one dimension of God into another. These are not necessarily being removed from the sight of man, but rather they are manifesting the fullness of God’s nature upon the earth.

In this, they establish the kingdom of God as the Christ and His body is to now rule over all the earth. This is the season for His appearance, as the Christ appears in and through His body of people. Unto this, we say again, a birthing into God’s presence is now come. Thus, a loud declaration is coming forth; come forth you sons come forth. Rom. 8:22-23, “For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the first-fruits of the Spirit [Holy place experience], even we ourselves groan within ourselves eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our bodies [moving into the Holy of Holies]”. A people birthed into His throne-room presence, His kings and priest. God’s kingdom has surely come.

“Being of Spiritual Value – A Measuring Rod”

Eph. 4:13-15, “Till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head, Christ”.

What is it that God expects from His church of today? God’s purpose from the beginning was, and continues to be, to create for Himself the perfect man. Because of the time and season we find ourselves in, with many seasons having already come and gone, the season of perfection is now come upon God’s creation. “A perfect man” as spoken of above, with the word “perfect” pointing to “God’s level of spiritual value”. This word “perfect” has the meaning of and refers to “that which has reached an end, that is, finished, complete, and perfect”. This, as concerning God’s people, signifies consummate (complete and perfect) soundness, a being made whole, coming into maturity. Therefore, it speaks of being complete as to your created purpose and birthing concerning that which manifests God’s true spiritual values and purpose.

In this, God’s values and purpose, we need to consider, what was and continues to be the purpose of God’s entity called the church? What is it that God purposed for its birthing and what is to be its fruits? While the visible church, as the world looks upon it during our day and time, has a reputation of, a people who have seemingly become a powerless group having no value. This church is mostly become a group that expresses a mind-set that has melded itself into a mind-set as it comes forth from the carnal minded dictators that rule the world (political, economic, educational and religious) in general. The coming forth of this type of mind-set is that which has become the educator and a great influence concerning most of today’s Christian ministers. These mostly promote numerical growth above and/or without maintaining God’s degree of righteousness or spiritual guidance as it comes from God through the Holy Spirit. Is this corrupt existence and manifestation what Christ desired for the church when birthing it on the day of Pentecost some 2000 years ago?

Could it be said, for the most part, that the church has not stayed completely separated from the world as Paul stated was God’s purpose and desire? Is it not so, that the true Christian, while in the world, they are not to be motivated by or influenced by any part of this worlds system? Could this mean that while the world has a standard established for the type of life man is to live, God has established a standard for His people, one that is to make them of a different spirit and life? With a standard established by God for man to live, this standard only produces spiritual value when the man is influenced by and exercises obedience toward it. While man has been given the right to choose the life-style he desires to live, freedom given as the results of God’s love, man becomes spiritually valuable only when walking in obedience to Christ stature of perfection, His standard of life in the Holy Spirit.

Humanity mostly, having the authority of self-will given unto him by God, has yielded to God’s enemy and created a world for themselves that expresses itself in many arenas. These expressions concerning humankind are through the arenas of politics, religion, the economy, education, art and entertainment, health and social welfare, and freedom of ownership. These arenas display the nature of man as each person relates to one another in forming the culture of society that each man desires to live. In all this, man has established for himself the life he chooses to live but needs to ask himself this question. Does the life I’ve chosen have and is it of any spiritual value to Christ?

Man has set within his existence many levels of value that plays a part in the many arenas in which he involves himself. In these areas, man prioritizes the level of importance each section should take in the involvement of his life. Remember, each arena involved in man’s life influences his make-up as to that which drives him in establishing his daily life-style. Herein, what value does the man place upon any part coming from each arena?

In considering each part of man’s involvement, these arenas manifest and are the product of carnality or spirituality according to each person’s make-up or nature. What nature is the motivating factor in their lives? Among the world in general, without any relationship with God, all these arenas are the product of man’s unregenerate fallen soul. Thus, man lives in a world, with many expressed arenas, that are the products of men and his darken soul, his mind, his will, his emotions and his own desires. Thus, a darken world filled with gross darkness upon their minds (pointing to a lack of knowledge concerning God’s word and way). The important question to ask, should the Christian community allow these darken souls to educate them as to the order of their Christian life-style? In this, darkness is the influence and therefore we see a fulfillment as declared by the prophet Isaiah in Chapter 60:2a, “For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people …”

However, as we continue to read in Isaiah, God, while declaring such a time of darkness He also proclaimed that He would bring forth, through His people, a light of great value. Isa. 60:1 & 2b, “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. …But the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you”. Herein, God places upon and within His people that for which He places value in. Note, that in God’s ultimate purpose, darkness has no Godly spiritual value. For this cause, God Himself sent forth His Begotten Son as a sacrifice in which, when received and obeyed, humanity is delivered from this state of gross darkness. Remember, gross darkness has no spiritual value. Gal. 1:4 states, “Who [Jesus] gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age according to the will of our God and Father”.

Deliverance is that for which God the Father has purposed for us. Deliverance received is the completed work of Jesus Christ on the cross, a finished work legally accomplished when Jesus declared, “it is finished”. Thus, something God’s people should take a hard look at when considering that which is spiritually valueless verses that which He deems of great spiritual value. Gal. 6:14, “But God forbid that I should boast [glory] except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world”. Paul, declaring this truth for all who would read and understand the interior work needed for all Christians everywhere. That is, to allow the death of Jesus Christ on the cross to take effect in their lives, that they might know, and experience being crucified to the world and its influences upon them.

The world that rules over most of humanity is a darkened world that manifests itself because it controls the mind-sets of most of humankind. The arenas of man’s existence, the political, the religious, the economics, the realm of education, the arts and entertainment, the health and social welfare, along with the freedom of ownership has been the main desire and motivation of man. This meaning is that their purpose of existence is to be a part of this worlds mind-set. While these arena’s may be necessary for expression and our physical well-being, the very men who rule over these arena’s corrupt them. That is, the policies of each arena, while proclaiming themselves as the needed institutions for man’s well-being, they have in fact become arenas of expression and involvement that has no Godly spiritual value.

They, these arenas, are now denying the very God who purposed them while many desires to do away with Him completely. Meaning that without the Spirit of God being in complete leadership, these arenas now pervert and deny God His place of purpose. Was not God’s purpose, established before the creation of man, that man under God, was to have dominion, man was to be fruitful and multiply while filling the earth with like kind persons who would have rulership under God? However, man fell, and the earth became polluted because man has birthed from himself a world without seeing a need for God as many of these same men seek to do away with God completely.

Therefore, the corrupted world as we know it is one in need of a Savior. In this, the God of heaven, the creator of all things, has supplied this Savior through the act of His love. God’s process in dealing with mankind, down through the ages, finally brought forth Jesus Christ as He made an appearance. His purpose, to offer up Himself for mankind that they could have a way to be restored unto God and thus bringing them into His new world. A new world filled again with God’s order of the perfected creation, even as the realms of heaven, God’s dwelling place. Luke 11:2, “So He [Jesus] said to them, when you pray, say: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth [pointing to man’s physical body (earth)] as it is in heaven”.

God’s delight then is to restore the earth, the world of mankind back into that realm of perfect peace, joy and completeness in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the agent and entity that God, through Jesus Christ, is using for the building of this new world. One being built upon and with Jesus as its sure foundation. For this cause, God has purposed for His church to become a spiritual womb in the process of birthing His new creation. But, because the arena of religion has become a part of the corrupt worlds system, without any true spiritual value for union with Christ, God has left instructions for those willing to become His true church. These instructions, for the most part concerning the Christian community, are to bring correction to those truly seeking God. Meanwhile, many continue to deny these instruction as being from God and are not necessary for today’s church.

Luke 24:46-49, “Then He [Jesus] said to them, thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins shall be preached in His name [nature] to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things. Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high”. “Power from on high” is the receiving of the Holy Spirits ability, as instructed by Jesus, to enable them to have His power of manifestation. This Holy Spirit is that agent which God would send to them, His supernatural power given to fulfill each receiving person’s purpose and mission. What is this power, His purpose and presence? The Holy Spirit is God’s agent to enable each vessel to become involved only with that which has spiritual value concerning God.

It remains that while the law of sin and death rules most of the world, with few exceptions; each arena contains no real spiritual value. The arena of carnal religion is that darkened entity, which most of humanity sees as the church. But. this church has become a people in need of knowing true and complete restoration. Why is this so? Because there is to be a true church which is God’s chosen entity from which He shall birth a man-child to establish a new kingdom order, God’s kingdom on earth. This is speaking of a truth in recognizing that each arena, ruled over by darkness shall fall as the light of God’s true church sweeps away all the darkness of sin and death. Know that God begins to reveal this truth as He speaks to and through Jeremiah the prophet.

Jer. 1:9-10, “Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant”. Again, this truth appeared on the Day of Pentecost when the sending of the Holy Spirit came to empower the church in fulfilling its God given purpose. This empowerment is that which carnal minded men seek to set aside and rob from the church. In this they take away from the people all that enables them in becoming vessels of spiritual value. Knowledge without the Holy Spirit is of no spiritual value.

Acts 2:1-4, “When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance”. This is the needed power spoken of by Jesus from the book of Luke and is still necessary today for the church to become and remain an entity of spiritual value. This Holy Spirit is a needed and necessary source of power that has never changed. Unto those who try to rule and have dominion without Him, the spiritual value of the Christian community loses its value to God and the ability to maintain obedience to God alone.

Could this be the reason why we see so much darkness around us today? Darkness remains because the leaders who sit within religious circles mostly have received their education from the carnal perversions of a fallen religious world. These leaders promote carnality for and by the masses. The church, God’s people called to be a light sit upon a hill, have become a Christian community ruled over by trained and learned men of carnal humanistic self-help experiences. Promoting programs that increase the darkness of this age, sitting aside God to become their own gods. Therein, all the arenas of humanity’s existence live according to the worlds promoted systems of corruption. Lining up with that worldwide system called Babylon, which is destined to fall.

Rev. 18:2-5, “And he cried 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! For all 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 abundance of her luxury. 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. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities”.

Reread Luke 24:46-49 above and take note of the time in which we live. This is now the third day from Christ when a man-child, through a resurrection in the soul, is now to be birthed. This man-child will manifest the Christ nature, and is purposed to establish God’s kingdom order upon the earth. Where are such a people as this? Are they not even now beginning to know their birthing as they, filled with the power of God’s anointed nature, are establishing such a kingdom? With the carnal world’s arenas of existence, along with most of the Christian community remaining carnal Christians, they have incorporating the ways of the world into their gatherings of ritualistic orders and traditions and are of no spiritual value concerning God’s kingdom.

In this God is not pleased and therefore a call comes forth from heavenly places. A first-fruit people are arising and beginning to shine because, they partake not of all this world’s activities which have no spiritual value. These first-fruits of God are responding only to the power of God’s Holy Spirit in all things. With the corrupted arenas of politics, religion, the economy, education, art and entertainment, health and social welfare, with freedom of ownership corrupted; God’s word declares that it shall collapse. In these fallen corrupted arenas, God shall resurrect each arena to a place of restoration, to take on spiritual value. Thus, establishing God’s kingdom and restoring each arena into that which expresses Gods completed purpose.

The measuring rod is that which each vessel becomes as they express God’s perfect man in the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. In this, we are to become a people, separated from this world of things that have no spiritual value, into those who have become vessels of God. These are those who now put their hands only to the things of God. In this, man does away with carnality, with rituals and ceremonies, with carnal humanistic doctrines, self-helps and carnal traditions as the Holy Spirit imparts life to re-establish these arenas into that which affects the world in all areas. This restoration speaks of placing spiritual value in God’s glory alone. Note that the old world is a world of fleshly habits and carnal training while God’s world is one of being led totally by the Holy Spirit. Honesty tells us that the world as we know it needs a cleansing. This cleansing must start among the Christian community until each true vessel knows the enabling power of the Holy Spirit dwelling and manifesting Himself from within. This requires a resurrection within the vessel himself and then a manifesting of Christ nature from within to affect the whole of creation.

In this, we see a birthing, a coming forth of God’s new created man to stand in and for Him in all things. Therefore, touch not those carnal orders that have no spiritual value and become a part of God’s measuring rod unto the entire world. Man can accomplish this by allowing the Holy Spirit His rights of ministry within them, to recognize that all the orders, rituals, ceremonies and traditions of men have no spiritual value while dwelling in carnality. Herein, release the cross and Christ sacrificial death to do a cleansing work within. In this, man shall begin to live, being established in God’s kingdom as vessels of great spiritual value. Jesus Christ becoming our reassuring rod.

“Assembling His Kingdom of Priest”

The present-day movements taking place around the throne-room of God is the results of God’s certain time and season, which was ordained by Him. This certain season has now come upon His people. This movement is one that is completing the purification process that is finding its completion in God’s true people. That is, a coming forth of a certain people whom, through complete humility, they have yielded to God’s progressive work of sanctification. In this, we speak of a certain people manifesting God’s time of completion, a manifestation of that which is perfect. 1 Cor. 13:9-10, “For we know [by experience] in part [from God], and we prophesy in part [from God]. But when that which is perfect [that reaching its end, completion and initiated, spiritual maturity] is come, then that which is in part shall be done away [brought to naught].” This is a declaration from a faithful God concerning a definite change into the administration of the portion He reveals. Thus, a manifesting of Christ through a certain people according to that which God has imparted, speaking of perfection. This impartation is the increase that is now initiating itself through His people. This is the appearing of the first-fruits harvest of God’s kingdom.

1 Peter 2:9-10 declares an agreement concerning this certain people, “But you are a chosen generation [race], a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people [God’s possession or acquisition – Read Eph. 1:14], that you should show forth the praises [virtues] of Him who hath called you out of [the world and the lesser in-part orders] darkness into [reaching the goal] His marvelous light: which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God; which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.” With the true church being spiritual Israel, the true sons of Abraham, these have accepted the finished work of Christ on the cross. These are now His chosen ones with a designated God given purpose. These, picked out from a larger group for special services, are the believers and recipients of God’s favor through the election of God’s grace. Know that “Grace” is not a freedom given to continue sinning or living according to the sin-nature, but rather an impartation from God to help the receiver overcome that sin nature.

Becoming a “royal priesthood” speaks of a redeemed people becoming ones with a kingly nature. A nature birthed from the nature of Christ and one that is rooted in God. This speaks of deliverance through the blood of the Lamb with the promise of dominion unto its completion. It is a growing in God’s kingdom authority while it purifies and keeps a people humble before their King Jesus Christ. Rev. 1:5-6, “And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead [dead bodies or corpses in the grave], and the Prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us and washed us from our sins [a past that failed to hit the mark] in His own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

“Kings and Priest”, speak of a standing in God that gives perspective on this people’s authority and duty. This also speaks of effectively advancing unto kingship concerning the kingdom of God. This place is a race of people, the reborn in spirit, soul and body, matured into God’s delegated authority that extends and administrates the power of His rulership. As priests, the mission is to attend to God’s purpose faithfully. This is the authority of Christ within the believers as they stand before God’s throne, worshiping the Lamb and exalting Him in praise (virtue), which increases unto God’s eternal kingdom.

Today’s throne-room movement is now bringing forth an increased manifestation as to the results of that which God purposed to bring forth from the beginning. This movement is resulting in a people receiving and becoming a people likened unto Jesus who came forth as the Word made flesh, the pattern Son. John 1:4 also points to a people born again, who have become God’s first-fruits, His body upon the earth. “And the Word was made [became] flesh [a new expression of His being], and dwelt [tabernacled] among us, and we beheld His glory [Shekinah], the glory as the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” First, the great need, the need that humanity has for a Savior. A Savior, when once received, He progressively purifies and changes the receiver until achieving God’s perfect purpose. Here the work of the Holy Spirit, through the cross within yielded vessels, continues until completion. Completion is resulted within as humility receives, obeys and releases its completed work.

Let us take note of one of the visions seen by Zechariah that portrays for us a type that also points to the cleansing and completion of that which God has purposed for today. The season and time upon us is releasing a movement within God’s throne-room and is bringing forth His purposed purification. Does not God’s Word declare that the kingdom of God is within? Where is God’s throne-room (authority) concerning the man, but within God being within His kingdom, a kingdom that is within the receiving man? These are God’s kingdom of priest made ready and released to rule under God in the establishing of His eternal kingdom. This kingdom is first established within the individual vessel who will then reach out, to manifest before humanity throughout the earth, even unto the eternal ages.

From Zechariah, who was the prophet used by God for restoration during a time when captive Israel was returning to the land promised by God. In this, let us consider that God’s High Priest for Israel at their time of restoration was Joshua, whose name means “the anointed savior”. This Joshua, who is the son of Josedech, a name from the Hebrew that means, “Jehovah is righteous”. This depicts for today’s saints a time of restoration and points to another manifestation of a priesthood (sons of righteousness) that shall know the completion of God’s purpose in restoring His creation. In this, let us consider the season humanity is in today. Just where are God’s people concerning the timing of God’s eternal plan?

Hosea 6:1-2 speaks to us of such a season as promised by God concerning His time of restoration. “Come and let us return unto the Lord: for He hath torn, and He will heal us; He hath smitten, and He will bind us up. After two days [with 1 day = 1000 years, the two days’ point to 2000 years from Christ sacrifice until today] will He revive [bring us back to true life] us: in the third day [now a people are beginning to move into the third 1000-year day from the sacrifice] He will raise us up, and we shall live [a life of resurrection] in His sight.” This scripture points to God’s new creation people who resemble the resurrection of Jesus the Messiah. This scripture also draws attention to the standing forth of God’s kingdom of priest. These stand before Him in His throne-room (God’s abiding place of power and authority) completing God’s time of the transforming of His priests.

In considering Joshua the high priest, Zechariah reveals for creation the events that are happening in this our season, our time of being restored. As priest with purpose, God is finding for Himself a willing people as He finishes up and completes in them the fullness of Jesus’ sacrifice (becoming righteous sons), a sacrifice made available when He declared, “it is finished”. John 19:30, “When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, it is finished: and He bowed His head, and gave up the ghost [moved back into the God-head order].”

Again, when considering our season in God, a currant event which He has released and is finishing, it is bringing forth the completion of His purpose as Zechariah 2:13 – 3:1-3 speaks. “Be silent, all flesh, before the Lord: for He is raised up out of His holy habitation [the true saints are His habitation]. And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan [the accuser] standing at his right hand to resist him [to be his adversary]. And the Lord said to Satan, the Lord rebuke thee O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem [the saints] rebukes thee: is not this a branch plucked out of the fire? Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments [character molded by the sin nature] and stood before the angel.” While qualifying and standing before God incomplete, God, as with Joshua, is also accomplishing today that final change in purifying His first-fruits people.

Note the pre-existing condition as to the results of a natural birthing with a sin nature, but a nature which has entered the sanctifying processes of God. These ones know the needful washing from the influence of that sin nature. Ones that humble and submit to the finishing work of the Holy Spirit to incorporate fully the finished work made available through Jesus Christ and His sacrifice. The promise given is that which appropriates the fullness of restoration made available to the saints when Jesus said, “it is finished”.

Isa. 4:2-4, “In that day shall the Branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth [the first-fruits of Christ] shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped [delivered from corruption] of Israel. And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion [God’s dwelling place in earth within man – manifesting His glory], and he that remained in Jerusalem [true church, the bride to be], shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living [destined for a life in Christ] in Jerusalem: when the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged [cast out] the blood [guilty mind-set of the sin nature] of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit [blast] of judgment, and by the spirit [blast] of fire [that which purifies].” With this appearing, we see the manifesting of Christ through His branch when He has total rulership within the vessels over all the sin nature, a nature that has completely lost its power and authority from within, a nature knowing death.

God’s Holy Spirit has prevailed; He has taken control over the yielded vessel to know the realm of ascension as they stand in the presence of God’s throne-room for this final change. This depicts the present tense activity of God in preparing to present His priestly remnant unto all creation. Zechariah 3:4-5, “And He [the Lord] answered and spoke unto those that stood [the ministering spirits] before him, saying, take away the filthy [corrupt body of the sin nature] garments from him. And unto him He said, behold, I have caused thine iniquity [perverseness – crooked nature] to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with a change of raiment [clothed in righteousness – Christ nature]. And I said. Let them set a fair MITRE [pure, clean turban, the mind of Christ] upon his head. So, they set a fair MITRE upon his head, and clothed him with garments and the angel of the Lord stood by.”

Herein understanding makes clear for humanity that righteousness comes not in our own strength, work or merit to do good. However, righteousness comes by the power of the Holy Spirit and Jesus’ sacrifice. Sins filthiness can only know a removal from creation through that finished work of the cross and the washing of His blood. Therefore, it is only unto a people of humility and obedience that “it is finished” becomes a complete reality. Herein stands a kingdom of priest who live in the power and authority of the throne-room. Here appears a priesthood who stand before God as overcomers who have had the sin-nature eradicated completely as God changes their garments, a people who now manifest the nature of Christ.

This speaks of a passing away of the sin-nature, that which has held its sway upon creation because darkness has settled upon the minds and nature of creation. With darkness ruling over humanity, but with God healing and smiting the darkness within the man who desires to live for Him, another day is upon us. This is a day when God is reviving His remnant to a God-life from the death realm. This is a day when a purified holy righteous priesthood appears because God is raising them up to live in His sight. A new natured priesthood that now, moving in the mind of Christ, appears upon the earth with the anointed seven-fold spirit of God manifesting from within them.

This seven-fold spirit of God shall again manifest the word of God in spirit and truth. These are the many member body of Christ manifesting spirit and truth as God’s two witnesses, dwelling in the same spirit as God’s first-born Son Jesus Christ. Isa. 11:1-2, “There shall come forth a rod [sprout] out of the stem [stump] of Jesse, and a Branch [shoot] shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.”

Lest we so easily dismiss this truth, let us remember and stand upon the prayer that Jesus prayed in preparation for His return to the Father. John 17:22-23, “And the glory which thou give Me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect [perfected] in one, and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them as thou hast loved me.” Here Christ Jesus identifies His people with Himself. He, praying for this day, acknowledges a season when His kingdom of Priest stand-up to manifest His nature throughout creation. For what purpose but that the world may know that God the Father sent forth the First-born Son. A Son of His birthing becoming many in number and sent forth to establish God’s kingdom throughout all of creation. First, God ruling within them as they become kings and priest who then establish the kingdom of God upon the earth. Is this day, the day of His vengeance, they bring forth God’s glory throughout the earth.

2 Peter 1:3-4, “According as His divine power [the power to reproduce itself] hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue; whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises; that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” The assembling of His kingdom of Priest is now come. These Priest are now to appear in the earth and establish, with God, His kingdom upon the earth. Today is the day of full salvation to be manifested in His kingdom. Arise, you priest of the Lord, for the time of His coming kingdom is come.

“Ascension Time is Upon Us”

The visible church of today, as it is looked upon by the world in general, is seen as being but a building erected by man to entertain their individual religious ideals. These ideals are mostly rituals promoted for self and others of like-kind motivations. Their interest usually lay within the confines of carnal thoughts and expressions to hold and captivate the people to their own philosophy concerning their personal religion. This structured organized arena is that which the world calls the church, with many of them promoting their own doctrinal ritual’s above God’s Word. Among some of them, they are removing the true Christ and His Word from their circles. With the world’s condition, in general, reflecting the condition of this humanistic church structure, we see a great need within the church itself. This is a church that the scripture truthfully classifies has a people having a form of godliness while denying the true God as having any power or authority in their midst.

Seasons have come and gone since the birthing of God’s church on the Day of Pentecost some 2000 years ago. During this span of time, the carnal mind has made inroads into what is now known as normal church order. But God’s Word, as spoken today by the few, is exposing the carnal church orders faulty condition. Rev. 17:1, And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, come hither; I will show unto you the judgment of the great whore that sits upon many waters.” This great whore, the condition of the fallen, rebellious, unclean church, sits upon these many waters (peoples) and is identified clearly in Rev. 17:15, “And he said unto me, the waters which you saw, where the whore sits, are people, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues [also pointing to many of the existing church systems].”

This great whore, as revealed, represents the many carnal Christians and organizations that reject Christ, and/or they continually misuse His word. They love the things of this world more than the things of God. These many read scriptures only to learn about and to support their many private doctrines, while the truth eludes them. Why? Because of their manifested stand, mostly against the Holy Spirit, in stubbornness and their pride of self-importance.

Even as Israel played the harlot with the gods of other nations, the Christian Community today is also playing the harlot with the activities and idols of this world. Her ministers become men pleasers and pleasure seekers while rejecting the need to sell out completely to Christ. 2 Tim. 3:1-7, “This know also, that in the last days’ perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with diver’s lust, every learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of truth.”

This harlot church, in making a pact with the world, receives the lies of the false prophet and antichrist spirit. Their desires are that they deny having to face any trials and tribulation that the spoken and revealed truth of God’s word will cause her. Rev. 12:16, “And the earth [carnality and self-will, the carnal mind] helped the women [true church], and the earth [carnal minded church – self-will] opened her mouth and swallowed up the flood [words, a flood of destructive lies that separate the harlot carnal church from the true church] which the dragon cast out of his mouth.” The receiving of Satan’s lies is a form of spiritual fornication because Satan is in those lies. Believing Satan’s lies from the beast that rises out of the sea (the heart of the carnal church) reveals the true nature of carnal Christians. Rev. 13:1, “Then I stood on the sand of the sea [heart of the carnal church]. And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” Thus, this beast church goes forth to do battle with God’s true church, the women that birthed the man-child.

Concerning this, let us take note that from out of the redeemed women church God births a man-child, the first-fruits of God who shall rule with Him. These first-fruits are caught up into God and His throne-room order and authority to now stand with Christ in His realm of glory. Rev. 12:5, “And she brought forth a man-child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne [moving into God’s throne-room authority – the Christ nature].” In this caught up experience we must remember a promise from God, a promise of entering a time of rest.

Heb. 4:9-10, “There remains therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into His rest [the Holy Spirit alone does the work], he also has ceased from his own works, even as God did from His.” How can this be, but when we as humanity recognize the weaknesses of the sin nature that is at work in and around us continually? Where is our rest? Could it be that Christ sanctifies and sets apart a people, enabling them to stand before Him who is a consuming fire? The Holy Spirit continues to purify yielded vessels until they are spiritually mature and stand with God as He appears through them. Malachi 3:1-2, “Behold, I will send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me, and the Lord, whom you seek, shall suddenly come to His temple [God’s true people are His temple] even the messenger of the covenant, whom you delight in: behold He shall come, saith the Lord of hosts. But who may abide [endure] the day of His coming? And who shall stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fuller’s soap.”

As a refining fire, the holiness of Christ exposes all the carnality that dwells within man as well as all creation. Because God is even now finishing the building of His temple, which we are, a people who are now awakening to the reality of God’s promises that He alone accomplishes through the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:3-4, “According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness [not a form of godliness] through the knowledge of Him that hath called us into glory and virtue; whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, have escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”

Thus, ascension, an awakening is taking place within the vessels as to whom they really are as they now dwell with God in His place of glory. This people walk the earth manifesting the invisible God to and among the visible world. Isa. 11:1-2, “And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: and the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.” That which God reveals through the indwelling Holy Spirit and Christ Jesus, God will now manifest through the spirit, soul and body of His Birthed Man-child Company (the true body of Christ).

This seven-fold spirit of God speaks of His fullness within the seed which Christ is, within receiving vessels. In this He matures and brings forth the fruit of that seed. This fruit is that for which Jesus prayed for as it brings forth the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ from within them, manifesting the perfect man. John 17:5 & 22, “And now, O father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with you before the world was. … And the glory which thou gave me I have given them, that they may be one, even as we are one.” Eph. 4:13 reveals the act of man’s progressive growth, an on-going ascension, until the full mature measure is manifest, “Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect [complete, full grown] man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.”

The ascension, a realm of glory that manifest from God’s dwelling place of glory within His Temple, is His throne-room anointing and authority. A people birthed into that place of authority, which manifest through the completed man, his spirit, soul, and body. This man is a glorified saint measured unto the fullness of Christ and sent into the world in the spirit without measure. John 3:34, “For he whom God hath sent speaks the words of God; for God gives not the Spirit by measure unto him.”

Ascending unto the presence of God is now upon God’s true church. The Christ within is awakening to His coming as He appears through the man-child who manifests the glory of God and brings separation between the carnal church and the purified bride. This people are awakening to the glory of Christ’ revealing as they are prepared to take the land. Remember Joshua and the day that God spoke of in Joshua 3:5 concerning the time to take the land, “And Joshua said unto the people, sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.”

Speaking of God’s eternal purpose points to the day of God’s eternal power and life, being within and upon His people. A people whose lives reveal unto the world, that is, from Gods promised elect as they manifest that God given power and authority. These are glorified by God to fulfill that purposed priesthood and God’s peculiar possession for His glory. 1 Peter 2:9-10, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people, that you shall show forth the praises [virtues] of Him who hath called you out of darkness [spiritual ignorance] unto His marvelous light [underived and absolute – becoming God’s glory]: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.” Remember, as a royal priesthood, we are not a part of the order of the law of death, the Levitical Priesthood, but rather are a part of the priesthood of God’s eternal endless power. Heb. 7:3, “Without father, without mother, without descent [no longer a part of that which is of the earth order, earthly], having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God, abiding a priest continually.”

This time of ascension is a time of glorification for the man-child to know a birthing into the likeness of the first-born Son of God. These ascended ones are a people receiving the throne-room authority of God, continually standing in His glory as a fire of purification establishes His eternal kingdom on the earth. Are you hearing the trumpet that is sounding out this call, saying, come up hither and behold the glory of God? Rev. 4:1-2, “After this I looked, and behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were a trumpet talking with me, which said, come up hither, and I will show you things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the Spirit [understanding the revealed things of God’s dwelling place which includes the heavens within] and behold a throne was set in heaven [invisible realm], and one sat on the throne.”

Ascending is, becoming a visible manifestation of that which God calls the heavens. God’s heavens are speaking of a glorified people who come forth and appear in the earth realm to remove all the carnal structures of man. These are those changed one’s who establish God’s eternal heavens upon the earth. If you are hearing, this is your day. Ascension time is upon us. Arise and shine for the glory of the Lord is upon you.

“Are We Willing to Become God’s Fullness?”

 

The word “fullness” is a word, as used in the following verse, which has the meaning of “a full number, full complement, full measure, copiousness, plenitude, that which has been completed”. When referring to the things of God, it speaks of an infilling of the complete purpose of God in and through each individual vessel. This points us to a part of God’s character called love. In Him, you find a love that is higher and deeper than man can imagine. And through the Holy Spirit, you can begin to know this God kind of love and in knowing and experiencing it, you will become knowledgeable of God’s fullness. Eph. 3:19, “to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God”. It is for this purpose that God’s new created man is to become His kingdom agent, to rule over and subdue the rest of creation. This action includes a defeating of the carnal forces that desire to control and rule the man. Know that it is through this characteristic of God love that all God’s enemies will be defeated.

Love for God becomes the gate, when opened, that puts man upon the pathway to God’s fullness. Unto the vessel that willingly forsakes all that hinders such a life of love, God, with all the host of heaven, will give their support to bring about this opened gate accomplishment. With God’s new man being distinct from the rest of creation, according to God’s purpose, he is not only a spiritual being, but he also has a soul and a body. Man became a mortal being whose intelligence, perception, and self-determination far exceeds that of any other earthly creature. Man’s capacity and ability constitute accountability and responsibility, so therefore mankind should never be pleased to dwell on a level of existence lower than that on which God has made it possible for him to dwell. Meaning that we should strive to reach the highest levels of God purposed life we can reach. (Read Psalms 8:4-8).

Along with God creating man in His own image and likeness, the command came for man is “to have dominion”. This speaks of a Godly design that has the right to “be filled” with the fullness of God, enabling the man to have dominion over God’s creation. This dominion explains the will and purpose for the creating of man. But because of the first Adams disobedience and rebellion against God’s purpose, he awakened in himself and his offspring the appetites of the outward body. This fallen body became one that lust after the natural material things of God’s creation. However, the last Adam, Christ Jesus, ushered in for humanity a new birth, including the spirit, soul and body, a new creation that desires a life that seems foreign, undesirable and unattractive to most fallen carnal men. Matt. 7:14, “Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it”.

In Christ, we find the pathway of love that enables each vessel, those yielding to God’s love, to receive a power source and a desire to live in God’s presence, His purpose and will in all things. This love generates a desire and a knowing that God will work in every situation, hardship and temptation to fulfill his purpose in each one as they humble themselves before Him. Rom. 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”. “Purpose” a word suggesting a deliberate plan, intention and a design. A personal salvation, well planned as God demonstrates His abiding faithfulness in awaiting the consummation of His plan.

God’s plan even now awaits the desire of men who long for the ways of God above all else. The requirement needed is one that reveals commitment to God and His will alone. This means that the light, the life of God, must influence the whole of man’s makeup. This light, this life is to consume the whole man spirit, soul and body until the man begins to manifest the nature of God in all things. Matt. 6:22, “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light”.

A good eye is one whose intent is to serve God and not mammon, which indicates the whole system of materialism. A good eye is one that sees who God is, and that He rewards those who diligently seek Him. Unto those who diligently seek Him, they have the promise of eternal life. In eternal life, we glorify God even as Jesus Himself prayed that He might glorify the Father, with one purpose, to make God and the coming of Christ known. Jesus in becoming our Savior through His atoning death, we, as receivers and believers in Him, will know God and thus possess eternal life. Therefore, by knowing Him, we have eternal life. John 17:3, “And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent”.

Eternal life speaks of receiving that which God is. A coming into the fullness of Christ is the results of loving Him. The fullness of Christ speaks of coming to and dwelling within the kingdom of God, for this is that for which God purposed for humanity before the world was. This is that for which God now makes available to all who are willing to identify with His death, burial and resurrection that they might be completely born again. This is a dying to one kingdom and a birthing into another. Without this new birth, we will not be able to see nor enter the kingdom of God. John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said to him, most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God”. As man enters the “new birth” process, he begins to see the kingdom of God. God’s word, by revelation, is believed and experienced as the Holy Spirit reveals it. Herein, we enter a new realm wherein God’s kingdom order exists.

This new birth is more than just being “saved from past sins” but it is a requalifying experience that opens the supernatural dimension of life in God’s kingdom order. Man should realize that the entrance into this kingdom of God is available to experience and take place while in the earth, before physical death. We should realize that coming forth into the kingdom of God before physical death speaks of doing the greater works in which Christ spoke. John 14:12, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father”. These greater works are not speaking of greater in value or significance, but rather they are greater in scope and number. In the body of Christ, we shall know resurrection manifestations as the Christ reigns from within.

The entering and the coming forth of the kingdom of God in the earth speaks of a changing from man’s carnal orders or man’s governmental laws. The life-style which remains by a reading of the word only is passing away as a first-fruit people began to move in the power and manifestation of the revelation, the revealed Word of God. God’s kingdom is the manifestation of the reign of Christ through the lives of believers. It is a display of the dynamic power of the Holy Spirit. 1 Cor. 4:20, “For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power”. What a dwelling place, knowing and fulfilling the will and purpose of God according to His preordained will and purpose. Preparing the world to see that great harvest which is to come, that every eye might behold Christ and see Him as He truly is.

In this place of spiritual activity, a people began to enter His rest. This is speaking of ceasing from the works or desires of the natural flesh man while entering that order of complete obedience to God. This people are doing all things in the Father and are doing nothing in the first Adam man, in their own ability, talent and strength. Matt. 11:28, “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. “Rest” a word that means, “To make to cease”. This speaks of a cessation from fleshly toil and entering a time of refreshing.

The coming of God’s fullness within man includes a “healing”, a restoration of health, tranquility, deliverance and a refreshing. This fullness is God’s rescue of the entire person and the complete repair of that person. Christ, the son of righteousness, is as if visible radiant beams of sunlight are streaming outward in all directions. From each of these beams of glorious light, healing flows. Malachi 4:2-3, “But to you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves. You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this, says the Lord of hosts”. God’s invitation is extended unto all those who stand willing to detach themselves from the deceptive influences that permeate today’s Christian community. A community that seemingly is willing to settle for less than Gods will and purpose.

Isa. 55:1, “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price”. In this, God reminds us that His ways and thoughts are beyond ours. Isa. 55:8-9, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts”. (Read Isa. 55:1-13). When standing with the whole body full of light, let us remember that light is more powerful than darkness. Truth is stronger than error. Grace is stronger than sin. Know that there is more power in the Holy Spirit than the power of all carnal forces. The blood of Jesus can cleanse the deepest of stains that result from man’s sins. As Daniel declares in Dan. 12:10, Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand”. Dan. 12:3, “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever”.

With many, who through the carnal religious systems of this world are being deceived, these systems continue to rob the people from knowing the true realities of the resurrected Christ. Meanwhile, God has set aside for Himself those in whom He calls the elect. These elect ones are the remnant, the sons who shall arise to take hold of their inheritance while the religious world continues to dwell in their places of deception. Religious deceptions that seek to rob the elect through doctrinal traditions and philosophies that puts God at a distance, at a far-off position. Instead of a God that is far off, these elects know the present-tense God of the now. These are fulfilling His word and manifesting His life of fullness during this season of election. Matt. 24:24, “For false Christ’s and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect”.

Are you willing to believe and trust in God, a God who wills and purposes for a people to come forth to manifest that which He is? Has this not been God’s plan from before the world was? Yes, and for this purpose the Holy Spirit comes to call, He justifies, and He glorifies. Rom. 8:14, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God”. A Spirit led people who are willing to do, to speak and to go only as God would lead them. Herein lives a people who are standing upon the platform of obedience instead of man’s religious principles, a spirit-filled people who are of the fullness of God. Matt. 16:19, “And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven”.

These keys are the power to move beyond fleshly words and works only, keys that move a people into the revelation of the in-Christ ones who move in the manifested power of God. These keys identify this people as being the sons of God who are heirs and joint heirs with Christ. Rom. 8:17, “and if children then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together”. We are living in a time, even now, when those justified ones shall put on the dimension of glorification with Him. We are speaking of an overcoming people who dare to become God’s fullness in the earth. In overcoming, a place of complete deliverance from the first Adam is theirs as they put on the life of the last Adam. Overcoming and putting on Christ that they might take their place with Him in His throne-room authority.

Rev. 3:21, “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with me in my throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne”. Is this possible? Yes, to those who are willing to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church? Are you willing to open the door and enjoy intimate fellowship with the Lord? In this, the Holy Spirit reveals to man that he might truly see Christ as He is and not what man says He is. 1 John 3:2 tell us, that in seeing Him as He is, we become like Him. What do you see? Are we becoming like Him? Again, are we willing to become God’s fullness?

“Are We Known by Him?”

Kingdom truth is understood and increased as men receive a revelation from God that is available unto all those who seek to know the truth concerning the fullness of God. Revelation, as it comes from God, is a spiritual enlightenment that gives understanding to a people concerning the mysteries of God for which He reveals for His times and seasons. The former secrets of God’s kingdom, which have remained hidden, are now becoming the order of this day, which is the coming kingdom day of God upon earth. In knowing these former mysteries, a people, a remnant called a first-fruits company is now ascending into Gods higher spiritual order and dimension, the kingdom realm of God. This is a dimension that releases His remnant people into a fuller measure of that which is in Christ. This Christ, Jesus the head, has ascended back into the Father and has all things put beneath His feet. Revealed truth now opens the door for His remnant people to also enter these same heavenly places because they have been invited to follow Him.

We need to follow Him because of knowing that He and He alone is the Way to salvation and its fullness. This is salvation on a higher level, which speaks of much more than forgiveness of a vessels past sins. It speaks of a change from that which is carnal and fleshly into that which is spiritually transforming, a coming into the fullness of that which fulfills God’s plan and purpose for creation. When speaking of this salvation, are we speaking of a church going man who lives after the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life or do we speak of the man, who through the cross, becomes obedient to Christ and lives according to the Christ life alone?

There is in the world today an organizational institution proclaiming to be God’s church, the structure of God in which He chooses to reveal Himself. However, in this self-proclaimed structure, among the many, there lays the root of deception that deceives many people. This system moves in a form of godliness that denies the very power of God. It portrays itself to be God’s purpose in the earth while being a stranger to God and His true ways. In being strangers to God, Jesus has declared that He does not even know them. Matt. 7:21-23, “Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name, cast out demons in your name, and done many wonders in your name? And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from me, you who practice lawlessness!”

Here Jesus warns against spiritual and self-deception having a mere verbal profession of His lordship without obedience to the will of God. This word “knew” in the above scripture has the meaning of “to know (by experience, or effort); to acquire knowledge, become acquainted with; hence, to come or get to know, learn, perceive”. Therefore, by a people just calling themselves Christians alone, that is not the desire of God for each life. It is possible for a self-deluded person to exercise a type of ministry while using the authority of the scriptures and the name of Jesus without walking in genuine, obedient discipleship or a Christlike character change. Getting to “know” Him requires for a people to exercise a walk of discipline through obedience to God’s will and His revealing purpose.

What is a disciple? The scripture reveals for us the requirements of those who desire to be Christ disciples. Luke 14:26-27 declares a need to leave all to follow Him. “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross and come after me cannot be my disciple”. A disciple must subordinate all earthly relationships with a loyalty to Christ above all else. Jesus’ remark above is an example of Hebrew hyperbole to emphasize the subject discussed. To hate one’s family is therefore not a command or statement of fact but a way of expressing the importance of allegiance to God. A true disciple must die to self-centeredness and be willing to endure suffering and even martyrdom if necessary.

To deny self is not to assume some false, external asceticism, but to put the interests of the kingdom of God first in one’s life. Such a sacrifice results in eternal life and the fullest experience of kingdom life in the now. Mark 10:29-30, “So Jesus answered and said, Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands for My sake and the gospel’s, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time–houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions – and in the age to come, eternal life”.

Thus, discipleship becomes the prerequisite of coming into the place of truly knowing Him. As we respond to God in obedience, we become familiar with His nature as humble obedience brings change from our old natures. As the changing of our nature begins, the manifestation of His will, His mind, His emotions and His desires begin manifesting through us. Obeying the Father was supremely important to Jesus. Obedience is the response of faith to any instruction given from God. Jesus taught that true faith always manifest itself in obedience to the revealed will of God. Christian living results from seeking and knowing His will and then doing it in faith. Jesus motivated His disciples to live righteously by emphasizing that such living comes from the heart through faith, with love and in trust, more than through observance of an external code of ethics. True righteous actions only proceed from the heart of a new life reborn in and of Christ.

As we walk in God’s desired obedience, the Father, through the Holy Spirit, comes into an intimate relationship with us that will establish us in the place of Him knowing us. This knowledge results in a people desiring what he desires, having a will that agrees with and yields to His will, having the mind of Christ as it rest in the Fathers will and purpose and then responding emotionally to every situation and circumstances even as He would respond. This is not just an intellectual knowing of Him and Him knowing us, but a changing life-style of manifesting that which He is to the entire world. Herein, we begin to see the kingdom of God establishing itself in the world as all men begin to see Him in His appearing (Jesus Christ the head with His many member body). With this we agree, come quickly Lord Jesus that we might see your kingdom in all its glory.

God, in His times and seasons, reveals Himself to His people according to that which He has purposed for that certain season. Remember, that He is a God that continually manifest increase and likewise desires to continually increase from within His people. We are never to remain encamped in one area of understanding, but to move on in Him as the revealed word and season reveals itself for God’s immediate purpose. Is not this the season for the manifestation of His kingdom on the earth? Is this when His kingdom will be a manifestation of His will to reveal the stature of the fullness of the Christ in His people? Beginning with the first-fruits remnant and a continual harvesting until the completion of the whole harvest. Ask yourself this question, do I know Him or just about Him? Does He know who I am because of faithfulness and obedience? It is surely the season when He shall know us and us Him in the manifestation of His appearing.

Rev. 22:1-5, “And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits [divine governmental nature manifesting in and through His people], the tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face and His name [nature] shall be on their foreheads. There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever”.

 

        Thus, a reigning people spiritually matured to leave behind all the influences of the fallen natural realm. These fulfilled people are now living in the spiritual realm, with the light of God in them and manifesting through them. These are establishing God’s kingdom upon the earth because he knows them, and they are one with Him. In this we say amen, come quickly. (Read 17th chapter of John).

Apostasy – God’s Indictment Concerning the Church”

God has given to His people an understanding that there is to be but one true church that lives and dwells upon the earth. However, another truth the people must consider is, apostasy is also alive, while working among and is on the increase concerning today’s so-called Christian community. Apostasy is a word that means, “To abandon what one believed in, as a faith, a cause or a principle”. With God’s word being the measure of His purpose, the evidential signs around us reveal that the institution which the world calls “the church” has become, for the most part, a people who have abandoned some if not all the godly principles inspired by God for us to live by. These principles are those things written and preserved for humanity in the Book called the Old and New Testaments, the Bible.

In this apostate position, men have become and are followers of the dictates of so called highly carnal-minded ideas which they think are best for man and all creation. In this, they often contradict and attack God’s word, even to the destroying, by some, of all that God’s word represents. In this position, understand that a little leaven leavens the whole lump. Therefore, by the receiving of carnal ideas into any level of church order, the door is opened for that people to enter a time of ritualistic leaven promoting spiritual destruction, even according as God has spoken concerning a little leaven.

Spiritual destruction exists because stubbornness, rebellion and apostasy exist among the Christian community with many constantly rejecting God’s warnings. Thus, a time, an end is upon creation and judgment is coming in an increasing manner. As the leaven of carnality increases, it finally comes to its place of judgment for destruction. In this increase, know that God’s kingdom is also at the door and with His approval, man can now enter and establish God’s kingdom here on the earth, beginning within self. Jeremiah 1:10 states this truth when speaking to Jeremiah and today’s Jeremiah generation. These are those who are of a generation now existing upon the earth that desires this same spiritual change. See, I have this day set [installed] you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant”. (spiritual warfare – not one’s own strength or talent).

To build and to plant points to a time of resurrection and restoration, which is the results of the necessary time of destruction, the tearing down. This action speaks loud and clear for the Christian communities need, to stand up and take notice. The cup of apostasy has now reached its fullness and judgment time is now upon man. Rom. 13:11-14, And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now, our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent the day is at hand. Therefore, let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day; not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts”.

Note that the word “light”, as used in the above scripture with “armor of light”, is the Greek word “PHOS” which means “light (underived and absolute); the opposite of darkness”. This word, while used specially of God, speaks to us of a change that happens from within the receiving man. Meaning, as God completes man’s spiritually maturity, this man no longer projects the fallen nature of the first Adam and this darken world. In this, changed man is to manifest the life and light of God, a new covering, a new body. These light bearers are the Jeremiah generation, which God is now sending forth to challenge and bring destruction to all the modern, so-called up-graded philosophies of carnal men. That is, God’s truth bringing down the carnal doctrines and false-hoods that have deceived the Christian community.

In this, apostasy is now being uncovered and revealed as to the lies it represents. How, because truth, by the enlightenment of Holy Spirit as sent from God, makes men free. In this Jeremiah reveals, as a sounding trumpet, the impending destruction that comes from the north, the carnal mind of man. This sounding trumpet is blowing today as God’s truth uncovers to reveal all forms of rebellion and apostasy. Truth has its purpose, which is to cleanse the house, the land, the so-called church, that the true church might birth from within itself the man-child many member body of Christ, a people manifesting the Christ nature.

In reading Jeremiah chapter six, from these scriptures truth reveals the present-tense apostasy of the church and Gods feelings concerning that apostasy and rebellion. With Jerusalem, used in this scripture as a type of the church, understanding is given, and the church needs to hear that which the trumpet of God is sounding throughout the land today. For this reason, the people are in need to understand that destruction is among them with disastrous results in the forecast. When speaking of disaster appearing “out of the north” it points to mans “carnal mind” being the enemy of God’s people and bringing with it destruction.

Also declared in verses two through seven, this enemy is seen attacking the daughter of Zion, which speaks of the offspring and the remaining inhabitants, the remnant which are a people standing-up for God’s glory. However, the leadership that responds and moves in the carnal religious systems of man has now come with an intended purpose in mind. Their purpose is to destroy and replace in God’s people an evil mind-set manifesting itself out from the north. This word “evil or disaster” as used in verse one is from a root word indicating its nature as one breaking up all that is good or desirable. In addition, notice that in verse seven her wickedness springs up in her midst as a fountain of water. Speaking of a people filled up with violence and plundering which comes from among her and seen by God continually, thus the necessary coming judgment.

These verses speak of the punishment for Jerusalem and her daughters because their rebellion causes this church to become one with the false antichrist church system. This religious system of carnality, which a large part of the Christian community populace pursues, causes God to permit these carnal mind-sets to wage war against His true saints. In this, they set themselves against all that is good and right according to God’s word. These people are in a state of ever learning about a gospel, but are never desirous to become the knowledge of God’s truth. (Read 2 Tim. 3:1-6) with 2 Tim. 3:7 declaring, “Always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth”. God’s cry coming forth to today’s lukewarm church, those dwelling in its apostate condition, is that some might receive instruction lest they also become a desolate land not inhabited (Jeremiah chapter six verse eight). This speaks of a system that shall, along with all its promoters become as nothing in God’s sight.

As we observe the remainder of Jeremiah chapter six verses nine through thirty, the indictment from God is declared showing that every form of warning from God has been rejected, thus the consequences. The indictment is that the apostate church receives punishment because of their wickedness, their violence and their plundering. This results in God’s judgment that He uses as an antidote for cleansing. Verse 10 states this condition, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot give heed nor harken. Behold, the word of the Lord is a reproach to them; They have no delight in it”. These established in their carnal religions have ceased to yield to the hearing of God’s voice and His ways. They become a people who no longer yield too nor understand God’s true covenant. The word of the Lord is a reproach to them. In this reproach, they have no delight in hearing truth as it comes only from God.

God’s hand now continues against the apostate church because as stated in verse thirteen, everyone is given to covetousness, from the prophet even to the priest”. Herein a false sense of security exists because of continual falsehoods declared as the word of God coming from the so-called ministry. With the ministry of this apostate church continuing in the religion of their choice, they continue to build a house upon the sand. Building upon the sand speaks of a house that shall crumble as the flood from the adversary overcomes and destroys it. Grief and wounds, hurts and pain become the people’s lot in that the spoken of revivals come and go without any true lasting change.

Where is the true ministry and those who have the true word of God? Have they not seemingly grown silent because of the uncircumcised ears that cannot hear the true words of God? Their failure to heed the warnings given from God exacts for them the inability to hear truth. They reject God’s true revelation while maintaining a system of death that exists because God’s glory has departed from among them. In this, we must consider this truth; God’s fury released brings destruction to these systems. (Read verses eleven through thirteen).

Meanwhile, many messages have come forth declaring this falsehood, the declaring of “peace, peace, peace” is among their idolatry when in this ungodly position there remains no true peace. True peace does not come to man when God is rejected and purposely denied His position among humanity. Isa. 26:3 does speak of true peace, but only in those who trust in God alone, You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you; because he trusts in you”. With trust in God exchanged for religious rituals and carnal minded doctrines, the fruit of the life-styles lived results in a hard-hearted condition. This condition prevails among those whose purpose in life is to live for self-alone. Herein some people appear to live righteous lives for the sake of their position and reputation by obeying the order of their certain religious group’s doctrines. This religious position leads us to verses fourteen and fifteen while we consider this people’s inability to be shameful during their committed abominations. They are without shame as they stand to fall with those who fall. These shall know the punishment of God in their being cast down.

In observing verses sixteen through twenty, further insight is given as to the true position and cause of such a condition that result in God’s indictment concerning this fallen church. The church of today, very much a church that fulfills the existing condition spoken of as works of the flesh, while they refuse to take the place of obedience and submission to Christ alone. They declare themselves as having no need for God, resulting in being spued out of God’s house. Rev. 3:16-17, So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth. [Here we see the modern-day church’s mind-set]. Because you say, I am rich, have need of nothing, and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked”.

As declared in verses sixteen through twenty of Jeremiah chapter 6, they have refused instructions while declaring, We will not walk in it”. Their refusal reveals a like kind mind-set that uncovers them as being stubborn rebels which results in God not accepting their sacrifices or their prayers. Where is the God who has promised to answer the prayers of the church today? Note, with deep thought and consideration, Jeremiah 18:15-17, Because my people have forgotten me, they have burned incense to worthless idols [works of the flesh, the carnal mind]. And they have caused themselves to stumble in their ways, from the ancient paths, to walk in pathways and not on a highway [to Mt. Zion], to make their land desolate and a perpetual hissing; everyone who passes by it will be astonished and shake his head. I will scatter them as with an east wind [the Holy Spirit from the coming Christ] before the enemy; I will show them the back and not the face in the day of their calamity”.

Friends of God, understanding is available as the results of a blowing trumpet of revelation is sounding forth from God. This trumpet results in revealing corruption as it exists and works among much of the visible church of today. This corruption is being uncovered through true understanding of God’s word, the spiritually revealed scripture vs carnal religious understandings. This corruption is the results of spoilers sitting down among the people. According to verses twenty-seven through thirty, these spoilers have become the looked upon one’s, declared as the watchtower, the assayers, and the guardians of their religious systems. These also are the declared fortress existing among the people, a people, though tried and tested in the way, but living according to their hearts condition, not serving God but serving man’s deceived ways. These spoilers are the stubborn rebels that walk as slanderers and corrupters.

According to Jeremiah 6:29-30, these reject salvation (silver), these have rejected the divine nature of God and therefore in their reprobate condition God rejects them, The bellows blow fiercely, the lead is consumed by the fire; the smelter refines in vain, for the wicked are not drawn off [church populace refuses to separate from carnal minded ministries and doctrines]. People will call them rejected silver, because the Lord has rejected them”. Apostasy, within a church and promoted by a system of religions are deceiving the world, along with many of those called to be God’s people.

Does not a large portion of the world look upon the visible church of today with this declaration, “they have nothing within them that I need”? Could it be because there is no life within the visible church and their lives remain unchanged from man’s worldly life-styles? However, while the alarm is sounding concerning this enemy of carnal authority and rituals, the word of the Lord stands eternal in its declaration.

Jeremiah 7:2-3, “Stand in the gate of the Lords house, and proclaim there this word, and say, hear the word of the Lord, all you of Judah [God’s tabernacle of true praise and worship] who enter in at these gates to worship the Lord! Thus, says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel [Abraham’s true spiritual seed], amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. [The Lords house is His many mansions, His dwellings places]”. These make up God’s true church, perfected to birth the fullness of God’s eternal purpose, a church without spot or wrinkle (blemish) to manifest the glory, the nature of our eternal God throughout all His creation. Come, those called to be chosen, take your place by separating from apostasy.
