“Coming to the Completion of Mans Time”

It is known and has been stated by many among the populace of today that time does not stand still. In this statement, it must be considered that the God of time established it with a divine purpose. Therefore, it is being ask by the many, what time is it and what’s happening during this specific season of time? With time continuing in a progressive manner just what is the God of time doing in the presence tense now? For it must be said, according to God given revelation and understanding of scripture, God’s written word, that events of today speak loudly to mankind. This voice, ignored by the multitudes, but heard and received by God’s remnant people are causing them to declare that time has brought mankind to the last of the last days concerning the return appearance of God’s Christ. To this fact, the desire of man’s heart shouts out, when and how? To this, consideration must be given to certain scriptures as to the reality of these timely fulfillments.

Rev. 10:1 speaks, “And I saw [to see: implying not the mere act of looking, but the actual perception of the object. Beyond the use of the eyes] another [of the same kind, but not one of the seven sounding trumpets mention in this book of Revelation] mighty angel come down from heaven [God’s dwelling place in the spirit realm], clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head [throne-room authority], and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire”. Here a scripture written depicting the appearing, the shining forth of God’s glory as it appears with and upon God’s coming messengers, a glory shining as the sun in their appearance. The brightness of light manifesting upon this sent one reveals the countenance of God manifesting from him. Pointing to a time when God, through His many messengers, shall reveal Christ to the world.

Here let us take note as to this appearing one and the countenance of Christ that was manifesting through his completed being. When speaking of Christ, after His death and resurrection, we must consider His true purpose. That is Jesus Christ becoming a seed to be planted into receiving humanity. Humanity, God’s field, is to become a harvest of fruit in His likeness and image. Here, we are to see that the Christ one that is making an appearance is not only Jesus, the head, but also in complete unity, His many member body. Rev. 1:16, “And He had in His right hand seven [seven pointing to spiritual perfection] stars [a double-portion people]: and out of His mouth a sharp two-edged sword [the spoken word]; and His countenance [manifesting Christ nature] was as the sun shines [to shine forth independently of any observer] in his strength [inherent power; the power of reproducing itself, mighty works]. Thus, a time being upon a remnant people that shall manifest the nature and power of God. A time when the Christ (head and many member body) begins to make an appearance to be seen by the fallen world.

In this, God gives to us a great and clear insight as to the appearance of such a glorified nature that shall come forth. In this, He also reveals the time, the season when such an appearance would come forth. Matt. 17:1-2, “And after six days [six – number of man and his time being completed – also points to the day of fulfillment which focuses upon “one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as one day”] Jesus [a name given in order to save His people from their sins] taketh Peter, James, and John his brother [taking them aside and pointing to a remnant of people who become His first-fruits taken from and for the harvest], and brings them into an high mountain apart [notice again the separation from others to ascend into a higher realm of spiritual dwelling], and was transfigured  [to change the form] before them [a first-fruit manifestation that would also be fulfilled in a remnant of first-fruit people of the harvest]; and His face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light [underived and absolute, the opposite of darkness]”.

In the truth of this great event we should take note that those sent from God reflect a like-kind glory to be shown before the people. John 3:34 states, “for He Whom God hath sent speaks the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto Him”. This reveals that God sends forth the messengers of His word with purpose. The purpose is not to just declare the word, but to also manifest and reveal it according to the word thus sent. Remember, when Mary Magdalene with the other Mary went to the sepulcher concerning Jesus’ body, they met a messenger sent from God. Matt. 28:3, “His countenance was like lightning [to shine, great brightness, radiance, brilliance], and his raiment white as snow”.

This promise of such glory is given, not to angels from heaven only, but to the righteous who shall share with and in God’s glory. In reading from Matt. 13:36-43 concerning the parable of the tares in the field, notice verse 43 in its declaration, “Then shall the righteous shine forth [shining brightly; full of splendor; dazzling, splendid] as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear”. This field shall be harvested as these first-fruit messengers appear to gather the tares out from the community of Christians. In this, all the righteous one’s shall begin to shine forth with the glory of God. Note God’s promise as Isaiah prophesied in Isa. 58:10-12,” And if you draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday; and the Lord shall guide you continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: And thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, the repairer of the breach, the restorer of paths to dwell in”. Thus, the righteous shall shine even as His first-fruits concerning the kingdom of God, to establish His kingdom over all creation.

Again it is being ask of us, what time is it? Is not God declaring that the time has come for the ministry, the government of death, to be absolved from His believers, His deliverers and for death in them to vanish away? In this, shall we not consider the contrast between the two realms of life made available to man? 2 Cor. 3:7-9, But if the ministration [results of service] of death, written and engraved in stones was glorious, so that the children if Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: How shall not the ministration [results of service] of the spirit be rather glorious? For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceeds in glory”. Let’s understand, that works of the law contain a passing away degree of glory as the scripture above declares. But the glory of God’s spiritual house of righteousness shall eternally manifest an exceeding great and precious glory.

Here it would be well for us to consider Stephen as he stood before the religious council of Jerusalem. Read Acts 6:8-15 as we especially take note of verse 15, “And all that sat in the council, looking steadfast on him, saw [seeing the actual perception of his face] his face as it had been the face of an angel”. Here He is likened unto the glory of the heavenlies, Stephen, one full of faith and power, was doing great and mighty works with miracles and signs among the people. Take a long look at who took pleasure in the stoning of Stephen. Was it not the religious crowd with one named Saul consenting. Acts 7:59, “And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit”.

What was it that brought such condemnation and intense anger to the crowd? Was it not because of a manifestation beyond just sounding out the words of truth? Take thought of that which Stephen saw, the crowd also saw in him and this cut them to the heart. In this they desired to rid Stephen from their midst because man loves darkness rather than light. In this, God, even now is raising up a generation of light. This light shall shine brighter than the noon-day sun. It shall cause the darkness, regardless of the avenue it uses, to flee even as the removal of the tares from God’s field shall establish God’s kingdom of righteousness. Now is the time, the time to awaken out of sleep to behold the kingdom of God which is among us. Herein men should repent and willingly forsake the world of self and humble themselves before God in humility to receive and know true salvation. Man’s day and time is coming to completion. God’s eternity is upon His people to move beyond the telling of, like Stephen, to a place where the people are seeing. Meaning that the world might begin to see His glorified Christ in His harvest. Man’s time is now coming to its end, come forth thou Christ, come forth.

Isa. 60:1-3, “Arise, shine; for thy light [glory of God] is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold [the condition of this darken world], the darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness the people; but the Lord shall arise upon you, and His glory shall be seen upon you. And the Gentiles [nations of darkness] shall come to thy light and kings to the brightness of thy arising”.

Malachi 4:2-3, “But unto you that fear [revere] My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings [beams or rays]; and ye shall go forth, and grow up [leap for joy] as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked [lawless ones, wickedness, in the sense of the restless activity of man’s fallen nature]: for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this [in the day that I am preparing], saith the Lord of hosts”.

The planted seed, Jesus Christ, has come to the time of their completion. Fruit is now ripening from the vine to a full measure of righteousness and shall shine forth as the sun. This, many member son, God’s birthed man-child, shall manifest nothing less than the Resurrected Light which He is. Manifesting true light to a darkened world as it becomes God’s kingdom. The time of man’s day is quickly coming to its end.

“Come, Let Us Go into God’s House”

Something beyond the normal activities, when it comes to understanding today’s spiritual activity, is taking place. This movement is happening within the ranks of a people who considered themselves as being Christian. Within these of the Christian community a remnant of chosen one’s are suddenly hearing a higher call as it comes forth from God. This call, of a higher vibration than man’s natural voice, comes forth from heaven, the invisible realm, and is being heard only by those who have the needed spiritual ear and are hunger to hear. These hearing one’s are even now being placed into the ranks of the overcomers who are being birthed as God’s man-child of many members. These are purposed to minister the things of God into the earth realm. These are those who, in submission, have become one with God’s Christ, speaking of His head and His many member body.

This Christ speaks of the many member body of Christ who dwell with Jesus Christ in their completion. These are those who have come to a spiritual maturity of knowing the advancement of God while on the earth. Their main purpose is to establish God’s kingdom here on the earth. Let’s note Rev. 5:1, “And I saw [to see; implying not the mere act of looking, but the actual perception of the object] in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals [seven seals point to God’s realm of completion, fullness and perfection – but sealed]”. Consider also that these seals are upon the understanding as it exists within the mind, the heart and soul of God’s covenant man.

It would be well for us to also consider that the sacrifice of the Lamb, Jesus Christ, was for more than the forgiveness of past sins. This sacrifice was for our past sins but also for the final eradication of the “sin nature”. Included within this sacrifice was also an open door, one that was needed for man’s complete victory. The victory of bringing yielded and obedient men into a “oneness with Him”. John 17:21-22 states, “That they all may be one [one in essence, not one person, something that is, or exist, a thing that has definite individual existence outside or within the mind, the soul] as you Father, are in Me and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as we are one”.

This is a coming into such a oneness with our Father that these do nothing outside of that which the Father does. This puts these into a joining that makes them of one mind, one will, one emotion and one desire with Christ. This oneness also includes the work of God in completing His eternal purpose. Therefore, pointing to a vessel being made complete in Him as He finishes up within them His complete redemptive work.

Rev. 5:2-5, “Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, who is worthy to open the scroll and loose its seals? [Jesus only qualifies as the ultimate sacrifice. But, because of His sacrifice, we, in receiving Him, are made one with Him]. And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it. So, I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it. But one of the elders said to me, do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed [at Calvary] to open the scroll and to loosen its seven seals [in the mind, the hearts of receiving overcoming man]”. Note the genealogy of this lamb as He was birthed out of the linage of David. This points to the flesh and blood life that identifies with the realm of mankind, but also to those who rise up from the old Adam nature to dwell with the Lamb in the birthing of God’s new creation man.

Rev. 5:6-7,” And I looked [same definition as “saw” in Rev. 5:1 above] and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures [the word “ZAO” as used are the Cherubim of Gen. 3:24, they are distinguished from angels. These living creatures speak of creation and redemption] and in the midst of the elders [heavenly beings], stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns [indicating perfections power] and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth [to send forth with a commission, implying authority on the part of the sender with the sender remaining behind] unto all the earth. Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne”. We should note from Eph. 1:20 who it is that sets on the right hand of the throne, “Which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in heavenly places”. Could this also be pointing to the many member overcoming body of Christ?

The throne-room of God is also prepared for those whom God calls overcomers, having been invited to live and dwell with Him in this same throne-room (read Rev. 3:21). Therefore, the knowledge of the purpose of God to these who overcome is to make or birth them into a like-kind nature even as it was in Christ Jesus. In this we must and can put confidence in God’s ability to change and fulfill all things according to His Word. In this we have a guarantee for our inheritance, a being sealed by the Spirit of God. Eph. 1:13-14, “In Him you also trusted, after you heard the Word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in Whom also, having believed, you were sealed [implies possession, security] with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession [pointing to the throne-room, God’s delegated authority, His new creation man], to the praise of His glory”.

With God confirming in the Book of Hebrews, He is writing His new covenant, His nature, upon our hearts and opening the scroll which was sealed with the seven seals. This points to the inner man, the realm of the spirit which contains the book of life. This takes a people from the realm of the flesh where the fallen fleshly and carnal religious man lives. This awakens these to the fact of this truth, the overcomer can now and must know that they are spiritually dwelling in God’s throne-room world. This speaks of awakening from the spirit of death to a remembrance of who we are and what we were created for in God. This points to a people whose mind is being resurrected to God’s truth.

John 5:28, “Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves [death realm] will hear His voice”. Could this scripture be speaking of a people who shall be delivered from that realm of death, death as it works in any unregenerate vessel? Then, there are also a people who dwell in Christ and they are ascending with Him into the throne-room. A people, while yet on earth who are living according to the government of God’s heaven, the nature of Christ.

John 20:17, “Jesus said to her, do not cling [do not be holding me to the flesh realm] to Me. For I have not yet ascended to My Father [realm of God’s glory]; but go to My brethren and say to them, I am ascending to My Father and your Father [having the same spiritual genealogy, because God is Jesus’ Father, He is therefore our God and Father because we become one with them], and to My God and your God”. This verse confirms the fact that the overcoming body of Christ is one with Him just as Jesus was. A people who say and only do what they see and hear from the Father. A people living in God’s world. These are those who now only do what the Father does because they are so at one with Him through Christ Jesus. In this, they go deeper and deeper into the realm of Spirit. Speaking of spirit, soul and body becoming God’s dwelling place and dwelling where God is.

This scroll or book (is not this book within man’s spirit?) spoken of in Rev. chapter 5 is shown to have seven seals upon it. With the number seven pointing to completion, fullness and perfection, we can understand that this is the place of dwelling God has for and with the overcomer. This place of dwelling is for a people who have the seven seals unsealed in becoming a completed man. This points to a people who have allowed the old natural life-style to be removed as it is being replaced with another realm or life-style. A vessel having received the nature of Christ while having the old corrupt nature of the flesh man removed.

2 Cor. 5:16-17 states, “Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore, if [the hypothesis is assumed as an actual fact, but the condition must be met] anyone [a certain one] be in [remaining and abiding within] Christ he is a new creature [freshly made creation]; old [the ancient life-styles] things have passed away; behold, all things have become new”. Note that the new creation is not patterned after the old order of the flesh realm but, it, the new creation, is from a completely different source, a new realm of life. This speaks loudly of a different realm or place of dwelling.

Understanding is that at the time of our salvation, when we except Christ into our lives, we are quickened or loosed, forgiven, from the old sins of the flesh. Herein we are made alive to the Christ Spirit that now dwells within our human spirit. 1 Cor. 6:17, “But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit with Him”. This speaks of the beginning of our new nature as it comes from God. In becoming a vessel that is “one with God”, this means we allow the realm of the soul (mind, will, emotions and desires) and the realm of the body (lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and pride of life) to become dead to resurrect into the realm of the Christ of God.

Acts 3:18-21, “But these things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled [accomplished]. Repent [not merely to forsake sin, but to change one’s apprehension regarding it, to change the mind] that your sins may be blotted out, so that the times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before. Whom heaven [also the heaven within receiving man] must receive until the times of restoration [the re-establishment from a state of ruin, the restoring of the man to the manifesting of Christ] of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began”.

With restitution meaning the re-establishment from the old creation man from a state of ruin, it means that the Holy Spirit is activating the Christ Spirit to function within man’s spirit, then to sanctify the soul and then manifest out through the body. In this, God is coming as a thief in the night to steal away all the doctrines of darkness that have stood in resistance against the presence, the manifesting of the Christ, the present-tense God. He, the Christ, in the coming of His presence is appearing through His body of People in the establishing of the realm of heaven on earth. 1 Thess. 5:4-5, “But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night of darkness [no longer sons of the old creation man]”.

The above scripture is speaking of the Day of the Lord which works in our lives to take away man’s two god’s. That is, the gods of good and evil. This removal does away with the double mindedness of man. This makes man one with God because He has come to spoil man’s self-built house while He builds receiving vessels into His House, His dwelling place.

Now back to Rev. 5:1-7 concerning the loosening of the seven seals which releases in man the seven Spirits of God to fill our whole earth, that is first our own bodies and then unto the world. In this we receive an insight as to the government of God, His nature which shall rule from within the new creation’s house, which is His many member body. Isa. 11:1-2, “There shall come forth a rod [sprout] from the stem [stump] of Jesse, and a Branch [shoot] shall grow out of His roots [from the Christ, to include both His head and many member body]. 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”. Thus, a body of sons, making up the ruling class of Kings and Priest as God’s complete and perfect nature, His government manifesting His eternal kingdom as it flows through them. All has been made ready, come, let us ascend into God’s house that we may dwell therein forever.

“An Eternal Purpose – Becoming His Expression”

God, an unchangeable Entity that never changes in His nature and purpose, can only manifest from Himself that which He is. In this truth, all that comes out from God is what has always been a part of what He is. In this light, when God began His process of creating the heavens and earth, creations appearing was and is a visible spoken forth expression of that which He is. In this, from within Himself, God always purposed to have for Himself a family. This family is what He is, what He does and what He shall ever be. A Family, the pattern of His heart in which he might dwell, not only in them but among them and they in Him. Thus, in molding the man Adam from the dust of the earth, God then breathed into man His breath of life, the God-life, and Adam became a living soul. Becoming a living soul speaks that Adam had the potential from within himself to become an expression of this inbreathed God-life, God’s mind, God’s will, God’s emotions and God’s desires, even as God declared it to be. Gen. 1:26, “And God said, let us make man [to become mankind] in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion. …”.

Therefore, this unchangeable God is a God of an eternal unchangeable purpose. That purpose, to have a family for Himself to populate creation with a like-kind natured people even as the Father God. In this, the created vessel was blessed by God to fulfill His purpose in becoming a family likened unto the invisible God who dwells within the spiritual realm. Gen. 1:28, “And God blessed them [as Eve was within Adam, so was God’s family within them], and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish [fill] the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth”. Note, that unto the man and his family it was given to have dominion over every order of life in multiplying upon the earth. Also note that this rulership can only be demonstrated as the man remained in obedience to the God-life. We should also take notice that God’s created earth (Gen.1:1) became without form and void. Therefore, God’s family as created was to subdue the earth from its fallen form of being made void that the enemy of God had accomplished. These fallen angels, thrown out of God’s heaven, inhabited the earth for their own purposes and made it one of being without form and void. Thus, a need for a new creation. In subduing the conditional orders of God’s enemy, this created man is to replenish the earth and take dominion over it as he dwelt with God.

Therefore, these offspring of Adam, those willing to receive from God His forgiveness as provided through Jesus Christ, are now to take their place in this eternal purpose. In this, God, while supplying all things necessary to take this dominion, they must begin by learning and knowing God’s plan and who they are in Christ. Know that God’s plan, while activated in the receiving believer, is a commission given that man might progressive take hold of this God given dominion. Eph. 1:3, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath [having] bless us with [the efficient cause as emanating from within] all [every] spiritual [the things of God’s Divine sphere] blessings in heavenly places [spiritual place, even within, where man receives from the Divine, does not apply to the carnal realm] in Christ”.

Therefore, the understanding given is that the necessary realm where these supernatural expressions dwell is in the heavens. In this, consider that this includes the heavens that dwell within the receiving vessels, those who allow the Christ to make their lives an abiding place for Him to dwell. In dwelling within, the government, the nature of Christ abides and begins its conquering process in writing the nature of Christ within the submitted vessel. This declares of a people who become the expression of the invisible God into the visible earth realm toward the finality of possessing the kingdom, the establishing of God’s kingdom family upon the earth. Heb. 10:16-17, “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days saith the Lord; I will put my laws [governmental nature of Christ] into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; and their sins and iniquities will I remember them no more”.

These truths point our minds to the fact concerning God’s workmanship. They declare plainly that God’s eternal purpose is at work to establish His family. When was this purpose instituted? Was it determined before the foundation of the world? In coming to know God’s eternal purpose we shall become the expression of that purpose. Eph. 1:4, “According [even] as He [God] hath chosen us [chose us out] in Him [those being and purposed to remain within Him] before [the position of being in sight or before one in place] the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him [in His sight] in love”.

What a destiny, becoming, according to His eternal purpose, the visible expression of God manifesting Himself through His family. That which has ever been in our unchangeable God is being brought to it’s fullness. That is, a people fulfilling the heart’s desire of our eternal God. Eph. 1:5, “Having predestinated us [foreordained – ordained and purposed beforehand] unto adoption [sonship] of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to [in accordance to God’s purpose and intention] the good pleasure of His will”. Note that the adopted child may partake of all the privileges of the family as these become sons of God by spiritual generation. They become the visible expression of God’s intended purpose, a family of sons.

Eph. 1:6, “To the praise of the glory of His grace [this given for purpose, He reveals Himself] wherein He hath made us acceptable in the Beloved [become favored because of]”. To succeed in God’s purpose is the needed recognition that all that is good comes out of God. Redeemed vessels are the expressed favor of God according to the character of His heart. These are those who find favor with God, from the beginning, because of His divine purpose. A knowing that we cannot, within our own self and strength, become the expressed nature of God. A knowing that we readily become as nothing that we might become all things in Him. Because, in His First-born Son, God became a seed to bring forth after His own kind.

As the Christ-seed is planted within receiving man’s soul, God’s appointed ministry’s water as God gives the increase. The increase is the sound of praise declaring and manifesting a life-style of God’s glory. Herein, making this people of praise acceptable and those who manifest God’s grace. More than just receiving but a becoming. Herein reveals the redemption of God as His family become as one. Eph. 1:7, “In whom we have redemption [birthed out from the sin-nature] through [proceeding from] His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace”.

In considering His will, His glory, His grace, His forgiveness and His redemption plan, the truth must be accepted that the creation and its existence is for God the Father Himself. Meanwhile, most of the Christian community excepts the ideal of all things being for the self of man. Meanwhile, the Spirit of God is the revealer of God’s will and purpose concerning creation. The need for man is to know that all things that have transpired from before the foundation of the world are according to God’s purpose. That purpose, through revelation, is made known to receiving vessels to know and understand the mystery of God’s eternal will. Eph. 1:8-9, “Wherein He [God] hath abounded toward [a time for coming together when one line meets and comes together with another line at a certain point] us in all wisdom and prudence; having made known [knowledge by experience] unto us the mystery [a sacred secret, something concealed that can be revealed] of His will, according to His good pleasure which He hath purposed in Himself”.

This ordained purpose, though hidden from the eyes of fallen man, was never in doubt. God has purposed in Himself a family for expression. Man, from Adam until today, has been lost to this revealing and manifestation but can now, by the Holy Spirit, know the stability of this revealed plan and purpose. God has purposed that in and from Himself all things declared shall be fulfilled. Many may ask when and how, but a God given sat-apart season is now coming into focus when all these things shall be fulfilled. This assurance is that in Himself God instituted the ages and a dispensation for a time of fulfillment which He called “the fulness of times”.

Thus, a prophesied time for the gathering of all things which came out of God and those who are now entering into the Christ are to become His manifested body. That is, a time when heaven (the invisible realms of God) and earth (the visible realms of earth) shall become as one. The time of fulfillment when God’s great family become as one, knowing the fulness of God’s created family. For this reason, we have been born again from above. Eph. 1:10, “That in the dispensation of the fullness of times He [God] might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in Heaven and which are on earth; even in Him”.

With the world around us being on fire with selfishness, the dissolving of this world of corruption shall come to pass. God’s family are coming to the day of their visible manifestation when God’s eternal purpose finds its expression in and through them. A purposed people to become the visible expression of an invisible God. Note and understand 2 Peter 3:12-14, “Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements [elementary rules – the carnal world] shall melt [dissolved, be done away] with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise [read 2 Peter 1:4 below], look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless”.

Cannot we as a people who look toward God for our existence recognize the ways of God as being so much higher than mans way. Can we not consider a truth, that God’s eternal purpose is reached a time for expression? A time when the earth begins to see the appearing of these glorified saints who fulfill God’s eternal purpose. In this, with God’s hand extended toward us and heaven moving to encompass the earth, a purpose fulfilled. The appearing of the eternal mind of God, let us make man in our likeness and our image and give them dominion as being one with and in us.

God’s Promise:

2 Peter 1:4, “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises; that by these [the promises] ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust”. 

John 17:3, “And this [the purpose for eternal life] is life eternal [involves resurrection life and eternal life], that they might know [become acquainted with, to get to know]Thee, the only true [the genuine, the real, the substantial; is all that He claims to be] God, and Jesus Christ, Whom Thou hast sent”.

According to all this purpose, in becoming the birthed family of God, know that the season and time has come upon these chosen people to make their appearance for God. That is, coming into the time of their adoption, according to before the foundation of the world, that these adopted ones become their part as God’s appointed Kings and Priests. Gal. 4:1-5, “Now I say, that the heir, as long as he is a child [“neptos” – not old enough to speak], differeth nothing from a servant [a slave, bond-servant] though he be lord [owner] of all; But is under tutors and governors [stewards – pointing to the Holy Spirit when received] until the time appointed [an understood day of understanding] of the father. Even so we, when we were children [not old enough to speak] were in bondage [enslaved] under the elements [elementary rules – carnality] of the world: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son [huios – a son with reference to origin and nature, a relationship to the father], made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive [receive in full] the adoption of sons [mature unto full sonship – a like-kind nature as the father to receive the inheritance]”. Thus, God’s many sons are becoming His expression to be manifested to all creation.

“An Appointed Time – For God’s Kingdom to Come”

Luke 24:44-45, “Then He [Jesus]said to them, these are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me. And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures”.

As another morning of another day of God begins upon the earth, there is among God’s people an awakening taking place that is moving them toward and into another realm of reality. This new awakened reality is bringing forth, as the breath of God blows, the knowing of who these people are in Christ. This breath of God is making alive the fullness of God’s purpose within the vessels to shine forth the Christ appearing as He comes forth through this people. This awakening is according to that which God promised even before the foundation of the world. Eph. 1:4-5 states, “Just as He [God] chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will”.

“Adoption”, the Greek word “HUIOTHESIA” has the meaning of “son-ship”. This speaks of those birthed of the Holy Spirit and are the sons of God by a spiritual regeneration. John 3:8 reveals, “The wind [Spirit of God] blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit”. In this remember, God has made promises and ordered a release of understanding concerning them as He sends forth these re-born one’s in the Spirit without measure. John 3:34, “For He Whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure”.

God’s realm of “reality” is the necessary awakening that is maturing within an elect people. “Reality” is a word meaning, “the quality or fact of being real, the quality of being true to life”. The divine principle of “reality” speaks of the mental activity of a mature individual to meet the unavoidable demands of one’s environment. This principle speaks of those who, born of the spirit, now dwell according to the divine government, the nature of God Himself. Is this not the reason and present tense purpose that the breath of God, His Spirit, is blowing to awaken His people? That is, to live a life of heavens government, which is a spiritual awakened people with understanding of who and what they are in God.

This awakening, to become the reality of God’s instituted purpose from the beginning, is that which is now being birthed into the earth. Manifesting a generation of sons as they are now beginning to appear. This appearing is the “fullness of times” concerning that which had its beginning and progression as God first spoke of in Gen. 1:26, “Then God said, let us make man in Our image, according to our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth”. According to God’s design, which is in line with His purpose for creation, God established His seven-day plan. This plan had its beginning and manifesting starting point in the Garden of Eden. This plan from Eden continues throughout His seven one-thousand-year plan for establishing a people into knowing the reality of His purpose. Thus, in Genesis, God’s purposed creation begin its time on God’s road to maturity.

Note, that when Adam and Eve were removed from the Garden of Eden because of the sin of disobedience, they were removed from the supply of a God-life, represented by the tree of life. Because of this fall, a sacrifice became the necessary need for fallen man and this, God was also willing to supply. First, through the blood of approved animals which could only temporary covered the sin problem and needed to be constantly repeated. Then, in due season, the greater sacrifice was supplied as Jesus, the begotten Son of God, came in the fullness of a set time for man’s needed righteousness. This begotten Son’s purpose was to make available the God-life for the restoring of fallen man back into his ordained purpose. While the blood of fallen animals could not restore man, the God-life of Jesus’ blood can and does. That is, to each one willing to recognize and receive the sacrifice God made available through Jesus.

This Son Jesus was birthed in the form of a man who then manifested, before mankind, the tree of life. At His death He became a spiritual seed to be received within the hearts of fallen man. This received seed within the man is to grow into maturity until it reached the image and likeness of God. Thus, a 3 ½ year ministry of Jesus who revealed the nature of God for those receiving the spiritual seed to finally become even as He is. John 1:1-4, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men”.

Herein, redemption became available and man becomes justified by receiving Christ. The sacrifice of Jesus, when received, makes available for man to once again have the life that was rejected by Adam in the garden. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten san, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. This life, now available to man through receiving the sacrifice of Jesus, puts before man and again makes available the tree of life. That is, a supply for the Christ nature by living life in Christ. 1 John 5:11-12, “And this is the testimony; that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life”.

Note and receive understanding that God has never changed His purpose for creation. It is because of His love and the sacrifice of His Begotten Son that a door has been opened. This door is the gate-way leading to the tree of life wherein that which was lost can now be found. 1 Cor. 1:30 declares, “But of Him [God] you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God – and righteousness and sanctification and redemption”. Where then do we stand? In Christ we receive His Spirit which promotes for us fellowship in and with Him. Fellowshipping with Him creates within us a divine order of life that progressively removes the old sin nature while restoring unto the receiving man the Christ nature. In the Christ nature we have fellowship with the Father. 1 John 1:3, “That which we [John and other disciples] have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ”.

Herein is power to serve, power to transit from the old life unto the new. That is, by receiving the power of the Holy Spirit, the agent needed for renewal dwells within. His work is to regenerate, to renew in us a life of righteousness and holiness. In Christ, because of the indwelling Holy Spirit, we become a part of God’s new creation. Eph. 2:19-22 reveals the new, “Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit”.

According to this purpose, God’s desire is to build for Himself a dwelling place. Therefore, He has sent forth the Holy Spirit to build up, to sanctify each receiving and willing vessel, a place in which He can dwell. Herein man can again have intimate fellowship with God the Father. From this same Holy Spirit, man can receive and become God’s light and love. Notice the truth of Psalms 36:9, “For with you is the fountain of life; in Your [God’s] light we see light”. Seeing His light for what purpose but to become that light being sent to the world. In becoming that light, it means more than something spoken of or talked about. The light that is within us is a life that God purposed to radiate from the vessel to affect the world we are sent to. 2 Cor. 4:6, “For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness [purposed to shine out from the changed carnal man], who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”.

This light of God that flows forth from within the vessel now flows with the love of God as He pours His love into us. This is a God love that so changes the vessel that where hate and confusion once existed now flows a river of peace and joy. Rom. 5:5, “Now hope does not disappoint, because the love [a giving love that He gives freely] of God has been poured out in our hearts [souls] by the Holy Spirit that was given to us”. Now stands a life being removed from the old fallen nature called Adam. Jesus, as He sends the Holy Spirit to us, purposes to manifest Himself through those receiving Him. John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid”.

Herein, by dwelling in God’s law of love, a peace with God’s joy permeates the vessel and the mind of Christ begins to flow. No longer manifesting a life of worldly confusions and carnal religious rantings but now receiving and sharing in the secrets of Christ. 1 Cor. 2:16, “For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ”. We cannot dismiss the fact that God’s purpose has always been to share Himself with His family of sons. How, but by changing the old corrupt nature to the nature of God through Christ. By the receiving of Christ within, the nature of God progressively reveals the mind of Christ to the vessel. Herein Christ and God’s secrets are revealed because they now belong to us. Deut. 29:29, “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the word of this law [the Christ nature manifested]”.

Are we not beginning to see a people who have not only received Him but are now manifesting the knowledge and wisdom of the Christ? Are these not a people who are progressively maturing into the Christ nature (His mind) as they become the full stature of Christ? Is this not the desire of the Holy Spirit for each of us who have received Him? Col. 1:9-10, “For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God”.

This is a born-again people who are now, in the progress of their spiritual maturity, becoming God’s light to a darkened world. This speaks of the knowledge and wisdom of God now dwelling within a people. This Christ nature within is to manifest light purposed to shine out to this world of darkness. 2 Cor. 4:6, “for it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts [souls – man’s mind, will, emotions and desires] to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”.

Yes, a people appearing because of God’s grace. These are appearing to minister gifts and ministries as Christ, through His many member body, reveals to the world that truly Jesus was sent from the Father. This same Jesus is now appearing through His many member body as these Spirit sent gifts reveal God’s grace. 1 Peter 4:10, “As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God”. Stewards are those who manage the household or an estate. This also speaks of Christians who use the gifts entrusted to them by the Lord for the strengthening and encouragement of any believer. These obedient ones stand steadfast in the Christ while taking dominion, God’s power and authority as they establish God’s kingdom on the earth.

Herein, we again should consider the adoption. Love from God was exercised to birth, prepare, mature and receive His Sons into His family. A time is upon us for each son to receive the delegated authority coming from the Father who desires to share His throne with heirs and joint-heirs with Christ. Meaning that these sons are to reign with Him. For this cause of reigning with Him, God fulfills every jot and tittle according to His ordained purpose. That is, He has called, He has justified and even now is glorifying His people as they are conformed to the image of Christ.

Gal. 4:1-2 & 5, “Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, but is under guardians [tutors – the Holy Spirit filled ministries and spiritual gifts] and stewards until the time appointed by the Father. … To redeem those who are under the law [of sin and death]; that we might receive the adoption [son-ship] as sons”. This speaks of the Christ, the head Jesus and His many member body. Called, justified and now to be glorified to manifest the Christ to the world.

Is this not the position the Apostle Paul took in his desire to please God? Phil. 3:14, “I [Paul] press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call [the high calling] of God in Christ Jesus [becoming an adopted son as a part of Christ body]”. In this we likewise pass through the sufferings of this world to become the expressed glory of God. Those of His family take on the nature of the Father Himself. (Please read Rom. 8:18-30).

With Rom. 8:30 declaring, “Moreover whom He predestined [foreordained to be conformed to Christ], them He also called; and whom He called, them He also justified [to set forth as righteous]: and whom He justified, them He also glorified”. In this we become a people who glorify the Father in all we are. To be sent into the world even as Jesus was sent. Jesus herein sanctified Himself that we might likewise be sanctified by the truth. Overcomers who have sat down with Christ in His throne. Come, let us now establish God’s kingdom upon the earth. A time for heaven and earth to come together as we let the river of life flow from within. A people partaking of God’s available tree of Life.

Unto these the curse has been removed. The fallen nature has been eradicated and in these the voice of our beloved says, arise my love, my fair one and come away with me. 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 [God’s divine order, His holy government], each 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 shall be on their foreheads [mind of Christ]. There shall be no night [darkness] there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever”. To this we say Amen and Amen.

“Abiding”

The higher calling that is coming forth from God during this, our day and season in God, is drawing a people into a greater fulfillment and manifestation of His heavens. This call, as it comes forth from God, speaks of a far greater spiritual life-style and authority as it is being imparted by the Holy Spirit. This position is for the purpose of revealing Christ to the world in a greater manifestation of His glory. This Christ, as we remember from scripture, speaks of both the head of Christ, named Jesus, as well as His many membered body, a man-child being birthed. This is the call that is placing into Christ and bringing His hearing people into their ordained place of rest. This is a rest that transforms the soul into the nature of Christ. Matt. 11:28 declares, “Come unto [denotes going toward, implying motion onward, addition and view as an end] Me, all [those seeking rest] you that labor and are heavy laden [those burdened] and I will give you rest [His rest]”. Here Christ refers, not to sins, but to service; not to guilt, but to labor; not to the conscience, but to the heart; not to repentance, but to learning; not to finding forgiveness, but to finding rest.

For this experience called rest, God makes available and gives instructions to all who are hungering and thirsting for this rest, a rest He supplies from Himself. This supplying of Himself was the great accomplishment which took place upon the cross of sacrifice. That is, the giving of His first-born son as the needed sacrifice for all mankind. This sacrifice enables yielded vessels to be birthed from out of the realm called death. This realm of death is that conquering foe that seeks to destroy all that God has purposed for His people. But, unto all so called and desiring, they can come into His rest, His life-style. HOW? John 15:4, Abide in Me, and I [He abiding in us] in you. As the branch cannot [expressing full and direct negation] bear fruit of itself, except it abides in the vine; no more [even so neither] can you except you abide in Me”.

Especially note the above word “abide” as it is used three times within this verse, implying its great importance. Therefore, its importance rest in its full meaning to those who hear Him. “Abide” points to “dwell, remain, continue, endure, abide still, tarry and be present”. Here God stresses the need for His people to bring forth fruit. This fruit belongs to Him and it is impossible to gain maturity without this steadfast abiding in the vine which is Christ. Herein, that which is in Christ, causes the fruit to mature above and beyond measure when it’s not limited by the minds of carnal man. This fruit, the results of the Holy Spirits ministry, can ripen and manifest as God’s harvest. This happens completely without and beyond the thought’s and ability of the carnal man in all his efforts.

Know that the half has not yet been told, seen nor heard concerning the manifestations which God’s wisdom shall bring forth. Unto the men and women who purposely abide in the vine, they shall mature beyond the thoughts and limited intents of mankind’s own wisdom. Without Christ, the vine, the mature fruit shall not appear. Without exception, this lack includes the appearing of the tares which speaks of counterfeit product or fruit. In this, let’s note the response that comes from the Queen of Sheba in her response to King Solomon’s reign. In this, understand that the naturel expression revealed in the context is but a type or shadow to the revealing of God’s fruit even as it comes forth today.

I Kings 10:4-9, “And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon’s wisdom, and the house that he had built, and the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the Lord; there was no more spirit within her. And she said to the king, it was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom. Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold [directing special attention to some particular point or subject] the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceeded the fame which I heard. Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before you, and they hear your wisdom. Blessed by the Lord your God, which delighted in thee, to set you on the throne of Israel: because the Lord has loved Israel forever. Therefore, He made you king, to do judgment and justice [righteousness]”.

When yielding unto God, our spirit, our soul and our body, a chain reaction begins to take place which is purposed to swallow up the complete man. This results in fulfillment within each committed one God’s purpose for each receiving vessel, which is, becoming one in Him. This oneness provides for each yielded vessel all the increase necessary to manifest this oneness. Note God’s plan and purpose as stated in 1 Peter 2:9-10, “But you are a chosen generation [race, kind], a royal nation, a peculiar people, that you should shew forth the praises [virtues] of Him Who hath called you out [out from] darkness into [motion into] His marvelous light [that which is underived (not turned from its main channel nor obtained by reasoning),  and absolute]: 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”. This is coming into that place of complete and perfect fulfillment, a people becoming one with God to now manifest Christ unto all creation.

HOW? But by the hand of God who releases from Himself unto those willing to receive. HOW? Through the vessel humbling himself before God and allowing the stubborn rebellious heart to become crucified in Him and enter into His rest. Matt. 11:29 states, “Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me [a deliverance or passing away from any state or condition]; For I am meek and lowly in heart; and you shall find rest unto your souls”. While the old carnal natural man finds himself in opposition to being meek and lowly in heart, the new creation man finds his soul responding to and becoming one of manifesting the Christ. Herein they now manifest Christ in their mind, their will, their emotions and their desires. This change is the product of being yoked to Christ even as the branch needs to stay connected to the vine. In this, all that is in and from the vine produces a like-kind fruit known as the nature of Christ. Herein, obedience to the Holy Spirit enables each responding vessel to abide in the vine as full grown precious fruit manifest in its fullness. By dwelling with Christ in His yoke, note that God enables the yoke and burden to be made easy and light (illumination). Matt. 11:30, “For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light”.

Pause and take note that the above stated scriptures are promises from God. In believing God’s word and His promises, believing vessels find available to them a new mind-set. A mind-set that sees, knows, believes, understands and responds to the workmanship of Christ within. We have this confidence, that even as spoken, God shall provide, perform and manifest. Our dependency is not upon self, our talents, nor our own knowledge and ability, but by the handiwork of God alone. In this, we rest in Him as, through continual obedience, He completes and manifest His purpose. Phil. 4:7, “And the peace of God, which passes [surpasses] all understanding [every mind or thought of carnal man], shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”.

Can there be any greater assurance but that God shall complete that which He began? Nothing greater, for he does all things until the finished work reaches completion, which is when man walks in complete obedience. Obedience from a humble heart completes and releases the Holy Spirit to make man whole. HOW? Because our conversation, our citizenship is now changed. Meaning a new seat of government rules, of which we are citizens, including both our rights and responsibilities.

Phil. 3:20-21, “For our conversation [citizenship] is [exist now] in heaven [God’s dwelling place including within redeemed man]; from whence also we look for [eagerly wait for] the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change [transform, change the fashion of] our vile body [our body of humiliation], that it may be fashioned like [conformed] into His glorious body [becoming His body of glory], according to the working whereby He is able [of His ability] to subdue [subject] all things into Himself”. Therefore, God is maturing a people who shall become likened unto Him, the results of abiding in Him. In this truth, let us abide in Him, our Forgiver, Our Sanctifier, Our Healer, Our Deliverer and Our Glorifier.
