“God’s Unchangeable Purpose – His Family”

While most of the offspring of God’s first created man absence themselves from thoughts and the purpose of God’s created world, God according to His eternal intent maintains all His thoughts and purpose according to the reason behind their beginning. With God’s word being eternal, an existence of being without end, we understand that His creation was the result of His word. With understanding given concerning the written story of creation from the Book of Genesis, we know this book to be but the seed-plot of all He purposed from before day one until His seventh day of rest. This seven-day plan speaks of the seven thousand years purposed to bring completion of that which he intended. Therefore, by divine revelation, His truth is that which reveals, not only the purpose, but, the method of completion. In this, His heart-felt intention is revealed to lead His creation unto the fulfillment of said purpose, His eternal intention.

In this truth, we are drawn to the fact of His intention for the created man. Within the expanse of creation, God instituted an eternal law which, without ceasing, continues to govern God’s purpose. That law, mostly ignored by the populace, is the law of every seed bringing forth after its own kind. Gen. 1:26-28a states, “And God said, Let us [stating His divine purpose] make man [mankind] in Our image, after Our likeness [in the likeness of God’s image]: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. So, God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish [fill] the earth, and subdue it ….”.

Herein, God’s divine purpose was formed from His mind and spoken into existence. When declaring the intent of His heart and stating from within Himself, it touched all that’s contained within and around Him, setting in motion His divine purpose. Remember, all things are of God and come forth out of Him. In this God formed the man from the dust of the earth and then breathed into him His life and he became a living soul. Note that God’s breath is that part of His life which He placed within the man. This breath, the God life, was the enabler given to the man for maturing him into the full likeness of God’s image. Gen. 2:7 declares, “And the Lord God formed [as a potter] man [Adam – denoting his origin, as being made from the dust of the earth] of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life [breath that is life]; and man became a living soul [pointing to the nature of man’s mind, his will, his emotions and his desires, as being alive unto God]”.

Thus, the beginning of the man Adam was set within the earth to become a family wherein God was to dwell, and they likewise were to dwell with God as a family filled with the nature of God. Herein, creating for Himself a people of His likeness to fill creation as they subdued the earth for God’s soon coming kingdom and on into eternity.

As we follow the days of God’s created man, in fulfilling His seven-day (7000 year) plan, all things have and are working in agreement to that plan. The law, given for man’s continuous progressive process, was for the now fallen man to learn that he could not, in his carnality, his self helps nor his fleshly abilities, fulfill and live according to God’s law. Herein, the learning process was needed to bring knowledge to man that he needed a God to be his enabler to take the place of man being a god over self. In this, the knowledge of God, even before the foundation of the world, prepared for Himself a sacrifice for man’s inability. This sacrifice, from God’s heart, was for the continuing making of His created man into God’s image in agreement with God’s eternal purpose. That purpose is and continues to be for the making up of His family when the coming day of God ushers in a new heaven and earth.

2 Peter 3:12-13, “Looking for [to watch for, expect and thus look or wait for] and hasting unto [earnestly looking for] the coming of the day of God, wherein the heaven’s [consider the invisible spiritual condition of carnal man] being on fire [heat of carnality from resisting the Christ within receiving man] shall be dissolved  [melt], and the elements [elementary rules of the world of the flesh man] shall melt [be dissolved] with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to [God’s intent and purpose] His promise [Read 2 Peter 1:4] look for a new [freshly made – new creation man] heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth [Christ dwelling within a Christ natured many member man of Christ’s body] righteousness [becoming God’s manifesting glory]”.

According to these truths, a continuing work continues until the complete fulfillment of God’s purpose and promises are complete. Until the completing of the creation of man into the likeness of His image, God’s increasing creating continues. In this, let us be knowledgeable of this understanding. God’s creation continues according to His, before the foundation of the world, original intention. 1 Cor. 1:25, “Because the foolishness of God [the Father, the revealed God] is wiser than men [the individual human, the son of man]; and the weakness of God is stronger than men”. Herein the necessity is for man to see and understand that the eternal purpose of God shall not be lowered by any degree because of man’s ability or lack of it. Man’s position, knowing that in his own self he is unable nor has he the ability to rule or make of himself anything concerning God’s pre-creation purpose. In this, while man expresses the desire to rule self and be his own god, he always falls far short of God’s wisdom and strength and purpose.

1 Cor. 1:26, “For you see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called”. Note in seeing with understanding, that the calling as purposed by God remains independent of man’s own ability. In seeing this, “see” speaks of looking even though nothing can be seen, but there remains the ability to observe accurately and with desire. This “see” also points to a mental vision. But, clarity should remain steadfast that this calling is independent from man ability or natural talent’s. Thus, man needs to consider the condition of himself when called. The natural man is a carnal vessel full of corruption as generated by the carnal fleshly mind and its desires. This condition removes the man from the God life as He originally purposed. Man’s earthly or natural status is not a qualification providing success for a spiritual walk with God that leads to completeness. In this truth note: 1 Cor. 1:27, “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty”. Thus, a knowing given, that all which comes from the mind-sets of the flesh-man, his carnal thoughts cannot fulfill the destination that God chose for him.

In this truth, except in obedience to God’s progressive work, once a vessel accepts the sacrifice given by the Father, the things of the natural fleshly man remain in the condition of having the inability to help God in creating His new creation man. For this reason, God, sits aside all that mankind counts as wise, mighty, or successful. In these things God confounds the mind of man, He puts it to shame by calling and using what man seemingly deems as non-essential. Herein, God chooses out from mankind these non-essential things which puts man’s mind-set to shame concerning his abilities and purposes, deeming them as foolish.

1 Cor. 1:28, “And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to naught things that are”. “Base things” speak in line with that which the world recognizes as worthless. It speaks of those that are without a family position, a status of not being important to society. It sometimes is considered as something to throw away. In being “despised”, these called ones are counted as nothing, as in the eyes of the world they remain as nothing. These called “are nots” show the worldly attitude concerning a people of no importance. In this, the called ones are to stand with this understanding. 1 Cor. 1:29, “That no flesh should glory [boast or depend on self] in His presence”.

But in all this, we have this consolation, that God’s word, His promises, His eternal purpose shall come to a full measure of His intention. 1 Cor. 1:30-31, “But of Him [out from Him] are you in [remaining within] Christ Jesus, who of  [from] God is made unto us wisdom  [become wisdom from God] and righteousness [made right with God], and sanctification [holiness], and redemption [the atonement]: That, according as it is written, He that glories [boast], let him glory  [boast] in the Lord”. This transitional period is when we cease from living for self, in and away from God, and now dwell or live within the Father in all things. No longer independent, but a people living totally in and for the life of Christ who is in the Father.

Lest a falling away from the eternal purpose of God is entertained, a failing to become a people of His image, His family, His dwelling place, we should refresh our minds and hearts continually. That is, a knowing that we were never created to be our own god, but to become His family with God as our Father. Know that God is very jealous for His family and for this cause and purpose He is willing to show us Himself according to His ways. He desires not to limit His family to just seeing His mighty acts but to know His ways. Psalms 103: 7 declares, “He [God] made known His ways [the reason for His acts] unto Moses, His acts [visible actions to the people] unto the children of Israel”.

Even among today’s church, while recognizing the visible actions of God’s supernatural acts are important, the church of today seemingly has taken and made moves to eliminate the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. Man needs to remember that God remains a supernatural God.  Among many of those who still believe in the Holy Spirits power and presence, they seem to be willing to settle with the throughs of removing such spiritual displays from among them. Meanwhile God is maturing a people which, as Moses, are coming to know His “ways” – the reason behind God’s acts” in fulfilling His eternal purpose. That is, an intimate relationship that reveals God’s face, a relationship of a face to face family setting where the Father speaks of all His desire and purpose to and for His family.

In reading scripture from Ephesians 4:1-13, we should consider certain words and phrases which speak loudly to enlarge our understanding. In verse five note the words “faith” and “baptism”. Here the word “faith” speaks concerning the doctrine according to God’s ultimate intention from before the foundation of the world. The word “baptism” points to the baptism of the spirit by whom we are baptized into one body. That body spoken of here speaks of the many member body of Christ. This is confirmed in verse six when using the word “all” which speaks of the indwelling of God in the members of His body. Next let’s consider verse thirteen which reveals the increase of Christ concerning His body. A coming into a “perfect” man which declares of a completely full-grown man; one who has reached spiritual maturity as to age or qualification; that which has reached its purposed end. Does this not agree with that eternal purpose of God?

In coming into such knowledge, it entitles us to receive full or perfect knowledge. A knowledge that promotes a coming into the “stature”, the mature body of Christ. Declaring the purpose of becoming a people of fulness concerning the Christ, His head and many member body. “Fulness” speaks of those body members that “fill-up” the body of Christ, as the body of Christ fills up and completes the dispensation of the fulness of times. The key revealed here is, let us make God the center of our existence and not we ourselves.

1 Cor. 2:6-8, “Howbeit, we speak wisdom among them [pointing to ‘the perfect’ which speaks of God’s purpose that has reached its end] that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world [wisdom of the age, man’s carnality VS God’s wisdom], nor of the princes of this world, that come to naught [that which is passing away]: but we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery [a sacred secret, something concealed that can be revealed by the Holy Spirit], even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained  [preordained] before [a position of being in sight, or before one in place] the world unto [a line drawn to meet another line, at a certain point, redeemed man coming into Christ] our glory: which none of the princes of this world knew [none became acquainted with]: for had they know it, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory”.

In this truth, God, a God of certainty reveals Himself to His creation from the position of perfecting His eternal purpose from before the foundation of the world. In God’s purpose, man stands in the place of inability concerning fulfilling God’s purpose. It is God who purposed and God alone who shall faithfully fulfill within His family the very stature of the fulness of Christ. Rom. 11:34-36 states, “For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been His counsellor? Or who hath first given to Him, and it shall be recompensed [repaid] unto him again? For of Him [all thing come from Him], and through Him [proceeding from and a passing out; denoting the passing through whatever is interposed between the beginning and the end of such action] and to Him [denotes motion to or unto an object, with the purpose of reaching or touching it], are all things: to whom be glory forever. Amen”.

In seeing and receiving an understanding concerning God’s purpose, let us sit up and take notice concerning spending our lives in empty religious activities that only draw attention to self. Let us lose sight of self and begin to see God and His purpose as it flows from God’s heart. A flowing that flows from God and flows unto God. Col. 2:8-9, “Beware [see to it; to observe accurately and with desire] lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after [with purpose or intention] the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ: for in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily”. Thus, an awakening, a coming to the end of self that all things in God might pass through His people to bring glory and honor to our everlasting God. A God that created all things for Himself and purposed to be enjoyed by and through His family. Therefore, as His family, lets stand up and be counted as being a manifestation of that which God is in His family.

“God’s Time for a New Manifestation is Come”

When speaking of a new age concerning God’s eternal purpose, could the scriptures be declaring and revealing to us His purpose for eternity. When considering eternity, it must be understood that He is speaking of an existence without time. Today’s true ministry, those chosen by God for this end-time season, are speaking of an appearing manifestation with insight as to this revealing of God’s eternal purpose. Rev. 10:5-6 draws are attention to God’s purpose in giving understanding to those who seek to follow Him. “And the messenger which I saw [the actual perception of the object shown] stand upon the sea [victory over the carnal church order] and upon the earth [conquering the influence of unregenerate nations and individuals] lifted up his hand to heaven [pointing to God’s dwelling place, the realm of spiritual perfection and authority], and swore by Him That lives forever and ever, Who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer [speaking of no more delay in executing His vengeance]”. 

With “time” being no more, the purpose God had concerning the realm of time is to come to its completion. Meaning that each age which was a part of the realm of time is being made complete. That is, the ages have been fulfilled according to their purpose. The time has come for eternity to dwell within and be expressed through God’s people. Meaning, that the purpose for the ages of time and their being fulfilled is needed no more. Why? Because God has formed, fulfilled, and consumed all receiving and yielded vessels as they become one with God and His eternal purpose. Hence, a perfect kingdom of people dwelling within God’s creation. In this, recall that time within itself has periods of light and darkness, but now, Col. 1:13-26 states, “Who has delivered us from the power [authority] of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom of His Dear Son; In Whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins [time of responding to the sin-nature]: Who is the image of the invisible God, the Firstborn of every creature: For by Him was all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him [pointing to two lines meeting at a certain point – becoming one with God]”. An understanding must be maintained that by Jesus Christ all things are fulfilled to come to the end of times purpose.

An ongoing prelude to the end of time arrives to bring the proclamation of preparation now coming to an end because it is being finished and maturing into the realm of perfection. This is speaking of fulfilling the purpose for our beginning, the time when we were born from our mother’s womb, which includes God’s purpose and reason for our natural birth. Preparation for completeness is now merging with the sounds of heaven. Hearing ears and seeing eyes are beholding Him Who became our sacrifice that we might be one in Him. Rev. 10:7 speaks, “But in the days [time] of the voice of the seventh angel [messenger], when he shall begin to sound, the mystery [sacred secret, once concealed but now open to be partaken of and to become] of God should be finished [it has reached its end, hence perfect], as He hath declared to His servants the prophets [those who speak for God]”.

What results does this “it is finished” bring? 1 Cor. 15:50-53, “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood [mortal human being] cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption [living according to the sin-nature] inherit incorruption [immortality]. Behold [calling attention to something outside self], I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep [used for physical death], but we shall all be changed. In a moment [atom], in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump [the seventh trumpet]; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [that which is subject to death] must put on immortality”.

Herein, special notice should be given to this fact, a coming to and manifesting spiritual perfection in man’s spirit, soul and body. A last trump, concerning the ages of time is now upon us, with a distinct declaration coming from God. A sounding trumpet which says, come forth into the fullness that I, God, have made ready for you. In this, all the death realm that has reigned throughout the ages of time shall cease in this people. It is coming to an end because preparation has run its course, and the seventh trumpet of maturity is sounding. 1 Cor. 15-54, “So when the corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, death is swallowed up in victory [declaring the truth of Christ and the overcoming men all becoming one]”.

Living in and with Christ speaks loudly of a great change. Becoming one with Christ speaks of living an endless life without the sin nature. Yes, man’s realm of time is coming to an end. An end which speaks of manifesting that which Christ is to confound the world in righteous judgment. This sounding trumpet of God is a message of resurrection. A realm of life that reveals the Christ, His head and many member body. This completed body of Christ will stand to manifest the heavens, the throne-room order of God and His glory. This realm is a realm where flesh and blood cannot dwell, for it does not inherit this realm of God’s kingdom. With the descending of Christ at His return, His return brings forth the glory of His heavenly realms. Also, creation shall know the reality of the body of Christ, who have spiritually matured into Christ in His ascension, His throne-room order.  These shall, in unity descend, they shall be manifested with Him at His coming.

1 Thess. 4:16-17, “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout [a word of command coming from Christ’ union and fellowship], with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead [denotes dead bodies, corpses whose souls and spirits have been with Christ] in Christ shall rise first [their dead bodies]: Then we which are alive, and remain, shall be caught up [even as Philip was caught away in Acts 8:39] together with them [those receiving their renewed dead bodies] in the clouds [groups of people] to meet the Lord in the air [this word in Greek means the air from sea level to the mountain top, not into the outer atmosphere]: and so shall we ever be with the Lord [our eternal dwelling place by resurrection, by translation]”.

Here God declares of an eternal dwelling place wherein a spiritual perfected people are caught up into Him, being translated from out from the realm of carnality and death. Separated through Christ from our physical life-style into our inheritance, a life-style of change into a spiritual spirit, soul and body vessel. In fulfilling God’s declaration, a new manifestation is now come. We shall know a complete change as the corruptible puts on incorruption and mortality puts on immortality. The progression of becoming the perfect man comes as each man receives the Christ sent Holy Spirit. In this progression, man’s justification is received from the outer court Feast of Passover, received because of having faith in the work of the cross. Then, made available is the Feast of Pentecost wherein the Holy spirit filled vessels begin to receive knowledge and are processed through the sanctifying work of this Holy Spirit. Herein, a progressive change from the sin-nature renews the soul of man to become a restored vessel as a Christ nature people. Herein, this same people not only enter into the kingdom of God but they are made ready for a complete new birth. This is a birth affecting man’s soul which is made perfect in Christ to then overtake the body in preparation of a body being glorified.

Remember, movements from heaven are affecting the earth and new manifestations are coming forth. Let’s note Luke 24:36-39 which speaks of the resurrected Jesus appearing. “And as they thus spoke, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen [the actual presence of bodily sight] a spirit. And He said unto them, why are you troubled? And why do thoughts [reasoning’s] arise in your hearts? Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself: handle Me, and see [to know thoroughly and accurately, recognize]; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as you see Me have”. Here we, those who become the body of Christ, will not just become spirits but will become vessels who have received a glorified body even as His glorious body. An immortal body of flesh and bones while abiding in the glory of God. Herein, overcoming all the limitations of the natural realm.

Even as God has said and purposed, He is releasing from Himself a manifestation of Himself that is purposed for those who make up the body of Christ. These shall know the resurrection as His many member Son to establish the kingdom of God upon the earth. When shall these things be? Matt. 24:30-31, “And then shall appear [shine forth, to be seen] the sign [presence]of the Son of man in heaven and then shall [because of His appearing] all the tribes of the earth morn, and they shall see [truly comprehend] the Son of man [remember the completed Son is a head, Jesus Christ and His many member body] coming in the clouds [a specific group of people] of heaven [God’s spiritual perfected vessels] with power and great glory. And He shall send His messengers with a great sound of a trumpet and they shall gather His elect [those who have received His word] from the four winds, from one end of heaven [the elect, the perfected ones] to the other”.

When the word from God speaks of a people being changed to become his new manifestation, men must consider the everyday events that are taking place around them. The signs spoken of in God’s Word point to a manifestation beyond what God has released from Himself thus far. Events speak loudly as to the time of destruction that has now come. Destruction comes because God has purposed from the beginning to have a people for His name, His nature. Meaning that all else must dissolve or pass away. This points to and speaks of the fulfillment of His beginning purpose when God said, “let us make man in our likeness and image”. Therefore, through the ages of time, with each age bringing forth according to God’s progressive purpose, we have come to the time of man’s spiritual perfection. In this, time is coming to its end to be swallowed up into eternity, a manifestation of His stated purpose. In this regard, the first son came forth to be followed by the birthing and appearing of God’s birthed man-child, the ascending body of Christ. This is then to be followed by the perfecting of the bride of Christ in establishing God’s eternal house, His kingdom.

Therefore, according to His purpose, movements are taking place, a new expression and manifestation is come and God’s many sons are appearing. These are manifesting the Christ in His completion and His perfection. In this He is coming quickly. What do you see? Consider Jesus’ pattern prayer in Matt. 6:9-10, After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which are in heaven [heavens], hallowed [sanctified]be Thy Name [God is to be put first in all prayer]. Thy kingdom come, thy will [desire, purpose] be done [brought to pass, be accomplished] in earth; as it is in heaven [God’s spiritual dwelling place, includes the heavens within man, his spirit, His soul, and His body”. Thus the time for a new manifestation is upon us. The appearing of the end-time purpose of God, is it not come?

God Is Marking His People”

Destruction is of a surety concerning the reign of man’s time, because the prophetic words of God are reaching the completion of sanctification for separation. Meaning that a time has now come for the fulfillment of God’s stated promises. With destruction standing at the door, the fulfillment of God’s purpose is to and even now is making an appearance. That is, a certain group of people who are to become God’s prophesied “man-child” are being birthed from among the church realm to complete His purpose. In knowing that man was created from the dust of the earth, know that man is also considered to be a physical earth himself. The physical earth called man is made up of three parts which consist of spirit, soul and body.

So, from within each man, consider that the soul’s condition is that part of man which influences life and manifest according to the condition of his mind, his will, his emotions and his desires. Therefore, from within the earth man, he has the ability to manifest either life or death. In this, know that God’s purpose is for all death to be overcome. That is, the soul is being delivered from the sin-nature realm of death into the freedom of the Christ-natured realm of life. In this, a time of complete cleansing is taking place in preparation for the coming of the Christ, both head and His many member body.

Rev. 7:1 states, “And after these things [the opening of six seals] I saw [actual perception of the object shown] four angels standing on [coming from heaven to the earth realm] the four corners of the earth [speaking of the earth-man having four areas of the soul], holding the four winds of the earth [spiritual movements to take place that will effect man’s soul], that the wind should not blow on the earth [man’s soul] nor the sea [pointing to peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues], nor on any tree [man with some being Christian people]”. In recognizing that man’s soul is the source of man’s mind, will, emotions and desires, there is a holding back of destruction that is to come. Note that the number four is God’s number pointing to tribulation, but God’s mercy holds back that time until certain events take place for the designated protection from destruction that is to be accomplished within God’s people.

What is this destruction for and what shall it accomplish? Lest we forget, let’s remember God’s purpose    is the salvation of man from the death realm. In this, God desires for man to come into life, even the life of the Father through Jesus Christ. Therefore, destruction has a purpose which is, that the sin nature in man’s soul might be destroyed. Meaning, that men need to die to the sin nature which was cultivated within man, by having a carnal mind. Therefore, man needs to know a rebirthing and the reality of the Christ nature dwelling within. Therefore, a certain period of time is coming to an end. That  certain time is for change and for perfection to be appropriated because this progressive realm of sanctification is becoming complete. God’s mercy and grace, for a short time, continues to hold back this destruction of tribulation.

Rev. 7:2-3, “And I saw [actual perception] another [of the same kind] angel ascending from the east [revealing a coming from Christ], having the seal of the living [resurrection and eternal life] God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels [of destruction], to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, hurt not the earth [man’s soul], neither the sea [peoples, nations, etc.] nor the trees [the Christian], till we have sealed [a visible sign that protects the elect] the servants of our God in their foreheads”. The fifth angel, with the number five being God’s number for grace, is drawing attention to and focusing on the grace of God. God’s ministry is, His life coming from Him through His messengers.  These are God’s appointed ministries who hold back the wrath of the four messengers of destruction. This is the ministry God raises up, delegating His authority within them, to place the seal of God upon His servants as a divine covering of protection from the tribulation that is to come.

Understand, that this seal was not a placing of some mark on the outside of man’s head, but a receiving, a resurrection from any carnal thinking to the mind of Christ. Phil. 2:5, “Let this mind be in you [your hearts, the soul], which was also in Christ Jesus”. Let us remember that the Apostle Paul, in writing to the Romans gave the invitation for progressive regeneration until the perfect (fulfilling God’s purpose) will of God is manifested through the vessel. Rom. 12:2, “And be not conformed to this world [this age life-style]; but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.

In considering this time of transition now upon creation, it would be well for humanity to consider the word and work revealed for us through God’s dealing with the children of Israel as an example. God speaks of a time when He would raise up messengers of His purpose to accomplish and bring forth a transition into eternity. As scripture reveals of a marked people who usher in such a transition, the question to ask is, what time are we now in? Are we feeling the effects of heavenly movements being released to change the entire direction the world has gone in? In this, the Word of God gives understanding and directional manifestations. Ezekiel 9:1 reveals this movement, “He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice saying, cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying [dashing in pieces] weapon in his hand”.

This draws attention to God’s ministry gathered for a time of change. Through this elect ministry of God, it speaks of a purposeful war against carnality and corruption. Among the Christian Community of today there exist those who yield to the corruption of the carnal mind, the sin-nature. In this regard the time for God’s final cleansing has come.  In this cleansing we should note that the vessels used as a slaughtering ministry are those recognized men who have charge over the city. These are those who, like the many Kings of Israel, they followed not the ways of God but committed themselves to idol worship. Many of today’s ministers are likewise separating themselves from God’s divine order to incorporate among the people carnal and deceptive doctrines and rituals. Thus, ministries that are slaying or slaughtering the people’s spiritual life in Christ.

Ezekiel 9:2, “And behold, six men [Hebrew word “ENOSH” with the meaning of morally depraved, to be sick, wretched, weak and also denotes inability for good and moral strength] came from the way of the higher gate, which lies toward the north [the carnal mind], and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man [ISH – a man of God in contrast with ordinary men] among them was clothed with linen [righteousness], with a writer’s inkhorn [one obeying God’s command – note verse 11] by his side; and they went in, and stood beside the brazen altar [place of sacrifice]”.

Herein, having a destroying weapon speaks of something that needs to be destroyed. This destruction is purposed by God to bring about a cleansing change from man’s carnal order. “Six men” were sent, with the number six used as God’s number signifying man, that is man within himself without God’s supplied redemption. This condition is in essence controlled by the carnal mind of self and Satan. But notice, before full blown destruction comes there is a seventh man (ISH) with a writer’s inkhorn by his side. He stands up from among them to bring a separation among them, by marking those one’s who are pursuing redemption as God’s elect. Remember God’s number seven is His number for perfection, completion, fully spiritual maturity.

Ezekiel 9:4, “And the Lord said to him [seventh man], Go through the midst of the city [the people], through the midst of Jerusalem [the church], and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof”. Likewise, the Christian Community of today, they also entertain many such activities that exist and are practiced among them. With many approving of them even though they are an abomination unto God. Therefore, a time of cleansing is upon the church and the world population, that is the releasing of the four winds of the earth to release judgment among them. But remember, there are those who receive a mark, the seal of God upon their foreheads, which is the mind of Christ, these have a place of divine safety, a place of perfection.

Meanwhile, Ezekiel 9:5, “And to the others [six men] He said in mine hearing, go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity”. Recall the time when God spoke to the children of Israel as they were to become His covenant people. What about the church of today? God’s covenant with His people includes a process of sanctification. This process is for the overcoming of every enemy called character flaws which are named as inhabitants of the land (dwelling in our individual bodies, flawed characteristics). Consider these flaws as the sin-nature mind-sets that make up each person’s character. The flesh man that wars against God.

Remember God’s issued caution as He give Israel a forewarning. Exodus 34:11-16, “Observe thou that which I command you this day: behold, I drive out before you the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite. Take heed to thyself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land [carnal mind-sets, sin-nature character flaws] whither you go, lest it [this carnality] be a snare in the midst of thee: But you shall destroy their altars, break the images [sacred pillars, dogmatic religious rituals], and cut down their groves [lustful, lewd and lascivious rites and practices]: For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land [character flaws, carnality of nature], and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice [to offer up a sacrifice to God which comes from natural abilities and talents used in carnal rituals, even those order of religious activities produced by the carnal mind]; and thou take of their daughters into their sons [union with carnal doctrines] and their daughter go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons to go whoring after their gods [a strong doctrinal standing that binds up the people and limits their freedom in the Holy Spirit]”.

As spoken, the Christian Community, in general, have found themselves living according to the mind-set which has become their snare. A trap of activity which hinders and binds up the people. In this, becoming prisoners to these carnal religious activities remove them from actively living according to the mind of Christ. Luke 11:52, “Woe unto you, lawyers [teachers of the law and/or carnal practices]! For you have taken away the key [an entrance to and acquirement of] of knowledge: you entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in you hindered [forbade]”. But, a promise has been made, the sacrifice of God’s first-born son has been given. The Holy Spirit has been sent to teach, train and mature a people who have come to know and are separating from the emptiness and lifelessness of carnal religion. Meaning a Christian Community, that for the most part, maintains the order of death, by proclaiming a deceitful doctrine of hopelessness. (Read 2 Tim. 3:1-7 with verse five stating, “Having a form [external form] of godliness, but denying the power [power of Christ reproduction] thereof: from such turn away”.

Thus the Holy Spirit is declaring that a time has come, a time of separating is upon a people as God, in those He has raised up for this hour are standing up. These are sounding out the present day movements of God because they are now becoming the manifestation of God’s present-tense purpose. For this cause the mind of Christ is appearing again in the fullness of His glory as these elect one’s become that appearance. 1 Cor. 2:16, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ”. A people who are becoming those who fulfill completely the prayer of Jesus that He prayed according to John the 17th chapter, read to see and then to know its fulfillment. Phil. 2:5, “Let this mind be in you [restored living soul], which was also in Christ Jesus”. These, the new creation people manifesting in accordance to God’s divine order, are now coming forth and standing up with the mark of God upon them. A people of God’s new covenant, a knowing that destruction shall in no wise harm them because they have become the dwelling place of God’s kingdom order, and are living according to God’s authority.

2 Tim. 1:7, For God hath not given us the spirit of fear [cowardice]: but of power [the reproducing power of God], and of love and of a sound mind”. Can we not begin to see a new marked people even now making an appearance with the purpose of God upon them even as it is written in Jeremiah 1:8-10, “Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with you to deliver you, saith the Lord. Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, behold, I have put My words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee [installed] you over the nations and over kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant [restoring God’s purpose in establishing His kingdom]”. This season is now upon a people as they observe and humble themselves unto God’s purpose to receive the mark of Christ nature, His mind manifesting through them. Amen and Amen, deliverance time has come.

“God – Revealing Himself”

1 John 3:2, “Beloved, now are we the sons [children] of God, and it doth not yet appear [been brought to light, made manifest] what we shall be: but we know [to know without effort, to understand] that when He shall appear [when He is revealed], we shall be like Him; for we shall see [the condition of the one to whose eye the object is presented, to truly comprehend] Him as He is”. 

The things of God which He has purposed and prepared for His creation, for the large part, remain hidden from most of humanity. These hidden truths remain as such because of rebellion and unbelief that continues to be the motivating factor of the many. In looking at the Children of Israel as an example, an example that continues to exist among many peoples of the Christian Community today. Why is it that the things of God continue to be hidden? Deut. 29:25-28 reveals for man why these many hidden truths remain hidden today, “Then men shall say, because they have forsaken the covenant of the Lord God of their fathers, which He made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt [points to God’s altar of salvation for the world today]: for they went and served other gods, and worshipped them gods whom they knew not and whom God had not given unto them: And the anger of the Lord was kindled against this land [speaking of individual vessels and religious groups who depart from being God’s dwelling place] to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book: And the Lord rooted them out of their land [God’s promised presence concerning many among the Christian community has also departed], and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land [moved from spiritual enlightenment to carnal religious forms, rituals and darkness], as it is this day”.

But know, God’s intention for His creation has never ceased to be. He declares that His purpose shall be revealed and restored among receiving men. Know that He shall bring forth a revelation of Himself for and through His purposed many member manifestation. Why, because from eternity He has purposed to have for Himself a temple and then created a people to become that temple, His dwelling place. God has stated that His secret things are His, but His revealed things belong to man and his children forever so that man may do all His words in becoming the manifest nature of God’s government. Deut. 29:29, “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God; But those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever”. Pointing to this truth, “the revealed and secret things of God which have not yet been seen will yet be revealed”.

Note the results of revealed truth, how God has purposed to bring into the now his truth that it may be manifested through His purposed temple. Deut. 30:11-14, “For this commandment which I command you this day, it is not hidden from you, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? Neither is it beyond the sea, that you shouldest say, who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? But the word is very nigh unto you, in thy mouth, and it thy heart, that you mayest do it”. This is speaking of a hearing people who shall manifest that which God speaks, that which He has purposed. Herein, the modern-day church can, but will it become the greater glory which God’s Word speaks, and Jesus spoke of? In their rebellion, it must be forsaken, faith must be exercised and from among them God desires to birth a company of son’s who shall manifest and establish God’s kingdom on earth.

What kind of cry is it that we are hearing shouted out from the world today? Is the world, in its many different languages, cultures, and religious concepts, crying out to be shown the true Christ? Many, while not knowing the true reason, find themselves groaning from within, desiring to see something that speaks of reality. Could the church, liken unto Philip, also be seeking to see, to know the Father and His purpose? Could they be missing the mark because of blindness through rebellion and doubt as to any reality of a living present-tense God? Is not the Holy Spirit available to reveal God to all who hunger and thirst? John 14:8-9, “Philip said unto Him, Lord show us the Father, and it suffices us. Jesus said unto Him, have I been so long time with, and yet hast you not known [to come or get to know, learn, perceive, by experience] Me Philip? He that hath seen Me hath seen the Father; and how say you then, show us the Father?”

Is this God’s purpose in birthing His many sons, a family that shall manifest with the first-born son, Jesus Christ and His nature unto the world? Is this the desire and heart felt cry coming forth from God’s true people of today? These are allowing the indwelling Holy Spirit to complete a work of redemption within them. These are those who manifest the completion of stature which manifest the Christ before the world. Note the cry as spoken in Psalms 43:3, “O send out Thy light and Thy truth: Let them lead me; let them bring [ by guiding counsel] me unto Thy holy hill [God’s dwelling place – Zion] and to Thy tabernacles [His habitations, His temples, His living within man]”.

In this, God’s declaration unto His people, and because of the present-tense darkness and gross-darkness that envelopes the people, we are told, Isa. 60:1-2, “Arise [awake]shine; for thy light [God’s glory] is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth [the condition of the peoples, the nations just before God’s glory shines forth through His many sons] and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon you, and His glory shall be seen upon you”. Speaking unto those who mature unto God’s presence, those that manifest His glory unto the nations. These are those who respond to the cry coming out from the world. The groaning and travailing from within them is a cry for the appearing, the manifestation of God’s many sons. Rom. 8:19, “For the earnest expectation [anxious looking for] of the creature [creation] waits for the manifestation [the unveiling, the revelation, the uncovering, making visible] of the sons of God”.

Unto those who live but have spiritual blinded eyes, they are unable to see the truth concerning the coming forth of God’s revealed sons. But, a prayer of hope is uttered for God to heal blinded eyes for the appearing of these coming sons is now upon us. This means, that these sons are not to be the expression of their own works or talents. These come not by much intellectual study and natural learning. Nay, but these sons are the new creation ones being birthed by God, a people who become and finish the work concerning God’s creation. These are God’s re-born sons. Eph. 2:10, “For we are His workmanship [God’s handy work alone, His new creation] created in Christ Jesus unto good works [resting upon God’s foundation], which God hath before ordained [prepared beforehand] that we should walk in them”. Can we remember God’s promises back in Deuteronomy as to God revealing himself and the things of God to a people? In this, the season of manifestation is upon this humble and contrite people who have come to know that God and God alone brings to pass those things He has declared. Revealing Himself that He might also be revealed unto the world through His family of sons. A family of sons destined to dwell with God in His throne-room authority. Those whom then will manifest Christ nature, His life unto the world. God’s promised kingdom, while hidden to most, is to break forth and be uncovered through His sons that the world may behold Him in His glory through these sons.

Herein we should take note that these promises of God are a present-tense truth, a truth to be manifested as His truth is made known. Since the first-born Son Jesus Christ was raised from the grave He now dwells with the Father. Meaning, Christ now dwells in an authority as stated in Eph. 1:21, “Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come”.

Take note, this victory and authority is not just for some future time or event but is available in this, our time, in this world. Meaning that unto those many re-birthed sons, they become one with the Christ in this world according to the prayer of Jesus in John 17:22-23, “And the glory which Thou gave 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 – matured spiritually] in one, and that the world may know that Thou hast sent Me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me”. In considering these scriptures note that they agree with the words written in Eph. 2:6-7, “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together [like kind authority] in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. That in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us [coming from heaven, the invisible, to be revealed in earth – pointing to His sons] through Christ Jesus [a remaining within Him]”. 

Note, when a certain time had come for God to reveal Himself, Jesus was birthed to reveal Him. But, even as with many among the populace of today, He was rejected. Notice that this rejection was mostly centered and founded around the religious arena. What about today, is He not to appear again? Also, as with the day of Jesus, the many religious groups are rejecting Him in His now time appearing. How is He appearing today? Is He not calling and even now justifying His appearing through the birthing of His elected first-fruits, the man-child being birthed from out of the church? Col. 1:18-19 states, “And He is the Head [note and read Eph. 1:22-23] of the body, the church [called out ones]: Who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; that in all things He might have the pre-eminence. For it pleased the Father [Eph. 1:22-23] that in Him should all fulness dwell”. Thus, according to His word of promise, the Christ is coming to make an appearance that shall, not only reveal Him as a many member body, but they shall also establish His kingdom upon the earth.

Note that God always manifested Himself in each season as He reveals Himself with purpose. So, while every eye shall behold Him, and every knee shall bow, we can faithfully stand upon the truth of Christ and His coming. Meanwhile, a revealing is taking place as the Holy Spirit is fulfilling His purpose for this season, that is not only a dwelling within the souls of the sons, but to reveal Himself through them. In this revealing, as the Holy Spirits reveals Him, the revealing is for a present-tense manifesting through His sons. As the body of Christ, men begin to know their inheritance in Him, which is to be manifested before the whole world. How do you see Him even as He now reveals Himself? Col. 1:9-10, “For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that you might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding [productive thought]; that you walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in all knowledge of God; … verses 12-13, “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers [reaching, and touching and becoming the Christ nature] of the inheritance of the saints in light [the light]: Who hath delivered [rescued] us from the power [authority] of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His Dear Son; … verse 15, “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature”.

God’s trumpet is sounding for the appearing of the coming Christ. The revealing of the Christ is now upon us as the elect are seeing and knowing the revealing of God as He makes Himself known. Let us not keep God afar-off or a God that is unreachable, but a God which is making Himself known to His elect. Rev. 21:3, “And I heard a great voice out of heaven [the invisible spiritual realm] saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men [among, in company with the sons of men], and He will dwell [tabernacle] with them, and they shall be His people and God Himself shall be with them and be their God”. A revealing of the final and glorious fulfillment of the promises of God. A knowing that the revealing of Himself shall produce, as fruit, from the overcomer who shall see Him and become like Him to inherit all things. Note the promise as stated in Rev. 21:7, “He that overcometh shall inherit all things [all God’s promises]; and I will be His God, and he [the overcomer] shall be My son [a son having a relationship to the Father – His family – the Christ one’s]”.

Yes, God has and is revealing Himself with this question, how do you see Him and are you seeing him as He really is? Thus, a time, a season for the fulness of times is come as God reveals Himself to the children of God, purposed to mature them into His sons to become the visible expression of an invisible God. In this the world shall begin to see the coming of the Christ as the first-fruits man-child with the Head Jesus Christ, make their appearance according to God’s order. To this we say, amen, come quickly.

“Full Redemption – Is It Now Among Us?”

In considering the importance of the hour in which mankind now lives, thoughts about God and His present-tense purpose should and can be considered. Events of an accelerated pace seem to be consuming man’s thoughts daily and just what are we to make of such events? Could it not be said that God’s Word, the only source of real truth, needs to be examined for the revealing and understanding as to this now-time season? The Word of God clearly defines and declares that He has purposed to bless a people, a promise which was given before the foundation of the world. These blessings are to be considered, with assurance that God has always purposed to fulfill these blessings in and through His people.

1 Peter 1:3 makes a statement concerning a certain people as it reveals God’s purpose, “Elect [chosen and purposed], according to the foreknowledge [to know beforehand] of God the Father through [being or remaining within] sanctification [set apart for holiness] of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling [washing and purifying unto redemption] of the blood of Jesus Christ; Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied”.

God’s elect then are those chosen ones who have been called to come out from among the corrupt world and its corrupt mind-set by yielding to God and His eternal purpose. They are to know a rebirth from the old fallen sin-nature of the Adam man to achieve a place of adoption in becoming God’s co-heir sons with Jesus Christ. These are those who become God’s new creation, His Christ natured sons who are also called to be God’s birthed man-child. These are the caught-up ones who transit into God’s throne-room order as they rule and reign with Him in His delegated authority. These are the blessed ones who have a relationship in Christ as activated by the person of the Holy Spirit.

Eph. 1:3-6, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places [heavenly spheres, a spiritual realm or dimension] in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before [a position, before one in place] 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, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved”.

Herein, a people purposed by God are to ascend into a royal place in Him, which is typed by the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle of God as revealed to Moses. “Accepted in the Beloved” as written above fulfills the prayer Jesus prayed to the Father before returning to Him. John 17:5 & 22, “And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was. …. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as we are one”. This points man to the necessary sanctifying processes which bring the receiving man into having the right of receiving this Christ-like glory. This process requires a life that yields to love, obedience and unity. Pointing to a time called the “Day of Atonement and the Year of Jubilee”, which brings the fullness of redemption, a being redeemed back into man’s original purpose and place in God.

Eph. 1:7-9, “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure which he purposed in Himself”. Redemption is the great plan of God that is actively working within to restore man into a Christ-like life-style. This is a mind-set that removes men from the realm of the curse. Removing the curse allows the way-of-life purposed by God to be restored to fallen man.

Eph. 1:10-11, “That in the dispensation [stewardship or administration] of the fullness of the times [a delegated time for the completion of His created man maturing into His likeness] He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven [heavens – plural] and which are on earth, in Him [His many member body]. In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all according to the counsel [resolve or determination] of His will”.

In this, God is willing to intervene in the process of man’s natural maturing as He provides for man the availability of becoming that which God purposed. How could this be possible except there be a transformation of man’s mental makeup? In this, God desires to write upon man’s heart, which is the center of man’s make-up, applying the nature of Christ, His spiritual government. This writing on the heart has its beginning within the willing vessel by a complete and total submission unto God. Rom. 12:1-2 states, “I beseech [to call aside, appeal to by way of exhortation, entreaty, comfort or instruction] you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present [yield] your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed [to change the form, change to a new condition]by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”.

Conformation of this truth is assured when God’s Word declares of such a time of change in 1 Cor. 13:9-10, “For we know in part and we prophecy in part. But when that which is perfect [that which has reached its end – “perfect” a Greek word from “TELOS” meaning “end” and from “FINIS” meaning “nothing beyond; hence perfect”] has come, then that which is in part will be done away [fail]”. Herein, God’s perfected vessels receive the mind of Christ, the order of the new covenant, a Christ-like nature. These visible new covenant people are those who are released into a life-style of the heavenlies (knowing and living and manifesting according to the invisible realms of God).

Heb. 8:10. “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel [before receiving a name change, a nature change, Jacob was a type of the fleshly house while Israel, his new name, is a type of the spiritual house] after those days [the days of natural Israel], says the Lord: I will put My laws [nature] into their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people”. His nature is being restored into the minds and hearts of believers by the power of the Holy Spirit. In this, a new personal covenant placed within man whose lives are based, not on a compelling force from without, but on an impelling power from within.

Herein, a redeemed people, a resurrected company who know the experience of God’s “Day of Atonement – Year of Jubilee” which brings restoration, enabling them to now stand in God’s Holy of Holies which is His throne-room order. These are God’s people who have become the fullness of God in the earth, that is in man’s renewed spirit, soul and body. 2 Cor. 3:4-6, “And we have such trust [confidence] through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is of God; Who also made us sufficient as ministries [enabling us, or made us efficient] of the new covenant, not of the letter [ministration of death] but of the Spirit [life giving covenant], for the letter kills but the Spirit gives life”. This is the key that accomplishes a changing of the heart, the soul of man (his mind, will, emotions and desires). Changed from a heart of death (fallen man) to a heart filled with and manifesting a Christ-life through-out the whole (spirit, soul and body) man.

2 Cor. 3:3 states, “Clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart”. Thus, a new covenant people who have been resurrected from the carnal flesh man’s mentality to a covenant with life, a new nature, a Christ-life. That is to say, a people becoming a manifestation of the “logos of God”. This speaks of moving beyond just the spoken word of logos, which only reveals the invisible thoughts of God. This speaks of a people who become the living word which reveals and manifests the invisible God. This is declaring that God is raising up a people from being just a human (hewed-down vessel) to becoming the logos (manifesting word) of God. Note that “logos” is the thought and expression of God. “Logos” is the perfect will and intent of God.

Remember, Christ, the God nature seed, is placed into receiving men for the purpose of them becoming the visible expression of God’s nature to the world. This Jesus, the head of Christ plus His many member body, fulfills the purpose of God of having for Himself a family, a house to dwell in. John 1:1-5, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word [logos] 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 [the fountain of life – remember, out of our inner-most being shall flow rivers of living waters]; and the life was the light [not a light, but the light, is underived and absolute]. And the light shines [to shine forth as to be seen]in the darkness; and the darkness did not comprehend it [did not overcome or overpower it]”.

The above scriptures point man to the fact that God has a purpose and is fulfilling that purpose in a people. These people are to become the manifestation of the Word, the Logos. These are appearing as a spiritual matured people who, because of a nature change, now manifest the will, the mind, the emotions and the desires of God. These are a people moving from the mortal to the immortal, a people becoming the priests and kings of God within His kingdom. Therefore, know that God’s kingdom is being birthed from within this people who have yielded and obeyed unto the maturing of the Christ seed. These are a people who become the everlasting kingdom of God which always was and always shall be. This kingdom of redemption is the unsealing of the Christ-seed planted within man’s spirit. This seed has come to its time of maturity and is being birthed into the throne-room of God. Herein, these see Him face to face because they have become co-heirs with Jesus Christ.

God’s “Day of Redemption” is now. It is a realm where God births a people from the realm of humanity (hewed-down man) into the realm of manifesting the spirit, the heavens. 2 Peter 1:3-4, states loudly, “As His divine power [the power to reproduce itself, inherent power] has given to us all things that pertain to [for] life [involves resurrection life and eternal life] and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceeding great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature [the received Christ seed birthed and manifesting from within], having escaped the corruption [sin-nature] that is in the world through lust”. This phrase “through the knowledge of Him” speaks to us of a receiving people who come, by way of knowing Him, to their destined place of perfection. This also speaks of receiving the nature of Christ as it becomes our being born again nature.

Is this not that which God has purposed from the beginning. To redeem a people through God calling, choosing, justifying and glorifying them. (Read Rom. 8:30). Ask yourself this question. What day and season of God are we now living in? Has God followed through, according to the progressive pathway He purposed? A purpose that He has revealed from His scriptures. This day could very well be God’s day for the perfected redemption of His created man. If this be so, is God’s day of redemption among us?

Let us note and consider Acts 17:29-31, “Therefore, as we are the offspring of God [when begotten of God a vessel is set in opposition to the rest of mankind who are only begotten of the flesh and will of man], we ought not to think that the Divine nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped [results of man’s carnal religious efforts] by art and man’s desiring. Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent [not merely forsaking sin, but change one’s apprehension regarding it – this can only be fulfilled through a nature change], because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man [both Christ head and His many member body] whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead [the resurrected head and then the rebirthed body of Christ people].” In this God’s people have the assurance that redemption is among us to manifest the kingdom of God.

This day is our day when God is bringing a people into the fullness of this day. This day of Redemption has come as this people leave behind Egypt (spiritual darkness of the sin-nature) through the sacrifice of the Lamb, Jesus Christ, representing the outer court realm of the tabernacle. These have traveled through the wilderness of trials as they experienced the sanctifying, the separating work of the Holy place realm of Pentecost. Herein, the Holy Spirit has prepared a people for a birthing. This birthing takes us into the full measure of the Canaan land experience. A land of God’s fullness where His sons dwell in God’s Holy of Holies, fulfilling the Feast of Tabernacles. That is, a perfected company who know the reality of dwelling with God in His throne-room. A people knowing the fullness of redemption as it is now upon them. Stop, look and see, then listen for He has surely come.

“Following Gods Divine Plan”

We, the people of God, do have a future. However, according to scripture, the mind-set established that puts all things that come from God sometime into the future must be changed. That is, a mind-set being changed and coming into agreement with God concerning all our future, starts in the now. In this realization, God’s people can become the progressiveness of God in the now. That is, not only receiving, but also can now be dwelling in that which God has purposed for them from the very beginning. This speaks of a people that are glorifying and manifesting the Father in the now, a people who are partaking of their inheritance daily because they are dwelling in the heavens with the father, which is also a part of heaven that dwells within each receiving vessel. 1 Peter 1:4 describes this inheritance, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fades not away, reserved in heaven [within heavens – points to the maturing heavens dwelling within receiving man] for you. (Read 1 Peter 1:3-12). “Reserved in heaven for you” speaks of a people, separating from living according to earth’s carnal restrictions and ascending into an unlimited life lived according to the heaven, the dwelling place of God from within, the spiritual realm maturing within the vessel and becoming visible.

The little word “to” as written in the above quoted scripture is the Greek word “EIS” which denotes two lines meeting at a certain point, with the purpose of reaching and touching our inheritance. An inheritance that is incorruptible and undefiled. Thus, an inheritance, when once received, it will not fade away. With it being “reserved in heaven” does not put it off into the future, but it speaks of the place humanity must spiritually ascend unto, that the heavens might be activated from within. Also, another little word “in” from the Greek denotes that of “being or remaining within, with the primary idea of rest and continuance”. This speaks of a people who become the instrument of union and fellowship with the Father of the heavens that each might manifest that which comes from the Father, the heavens, on a continual basis.

“Resurrection”, a word as used in the scriptures mean, “arising from the dead”. The dictionary speaks of resurrection as “a rising from the dead, or coming back to life, a coming back into notice, practice, and use”. The resurrection God speaks of is the act of God, which sent forth Jesus Christ to make available to God’s creation, the act of returning to life, a life according to His original purpose. Scripture speaks of man as a fallen being who lives according to the realm of flesh which signifies a people who are living according to their old fallen nature, the order of the death realm. Rom. 8:8-10 speaks in this wise, “So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness”.

Notice that the phrase “in the Spirit” contained in verse nine denotes a new nature or way of life is living in the spirit of the child of God. This “new nature” is received into man’s dead spirit, which is dead because of separation from union with God. But, the now resurrected spirit by a new birth, because of receiving Christ, means that the man is now made alive in his spirit again, being brought back into union with God spiritually. In this, we should note that while our spirits are alive again unto God, the soul and the body, at this beginning stage of our spiritual maturing process, remains under the influence of death. This death speaks of the vessels independent nature of having been separated from the creator God. Thus, the soul which speaks of our mind, our will, our emotions, and our desires continue to be the fruit of man’s old fallen sin nature. While the Spirit of God has come to abide within receiving man’s spirits, the soul as yet remains carnal, an enemy of God’s indwelling Spirit. At this stage of life, the body of man also remains corruptible and subject to sin, hurt, pain, sickness, death, etc. unless God, through the prayer of faith, brings healing and deliverance to the vessel.

Contained in verse nine of the above quoted scripture is the word “dwell”. This word speaks of the indwelling Spirit of God transferring receiving people from one family into another. This indwelling Spirit of Christ makes us a part of a family called “the family of God”. As becoming a member of the family of God, note that in verse ten it states that the “body is dead”. Why is this so, but because of the sin nature that dwells therein. “Dead” used in this scripture is the Greek word “NEKROI” which denotes, “the persons who were once alive, but who are now alive no longer; dead persons as distinct from dead bodies”. This “dead” then is not speaking of corpses but is speaking of a life separated from God because of the sin nature. What then is the sin nature? It speaks of that which motivates a person to miss the mark; a falling short of the reason and purpose of God in creating man and the individual. This is a sin, the acting out of one’s own will, mind, emotions and desires.

Meanwhile, unto those who have received the Spirit of Christ within their spirits, they now have the life of Christ within their spirits to progressive work out the righteousness of God  within their souls. This work of righteousness continues until the whole person is righteous (to include, first the soul and then to change the body). In following God’s divine order, man now enters upon a new pathway that ultimately leads to glorification, which again, is speaking of the completed man who is spirit, soul and body resurrected. Rom. 8:11, “But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwells in you”. This word “quicken” has the meaning of “makes alive”, designating that it is the “mortal bodies” that are to be made alive by the Spirit of God that now dwells and progressive matures the whole vessel from within. “Mortal bodies” is that body which is subject to death, the fruit of sin, sickness, hurt, pain, etc. This is a life lived but not according to God’s original design.

God’s divine order begins its transforming process within the repentant receiving spirit of man as human kind receives the Spirit of Christ into their own spirit. Herein, man’s fallen dead spirit is made alive as the resurrection order of God begins its work. In this process of God’s Spirit, we have His promises that we can now stand firm upon until we see total salvation. Our surety stands, not upon our own ability, but upon the Christ who died and rose again, to become the first-fruit of this resurrection. 1 Cor. 15:20-22, “But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the Firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive”. With man’s spirit now having received the Spirit of Christ within, its purpose is to bring salvation to the soul. The soul of man, formed and shaped from the environment of a fallen world, has from the mother’s womb, been birthed into a fallen condition. Fallen humankind was and is shaped and formed in iniquity, with all avenues of growth being the product of this worlds fallen nature.

Psalms 51:5 declares, “Behold, I was shaped in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me”. A fallen spirit, a fallen soul and a fallen body, separated from union with God and shaped after the environment of this fallen world with all its influences. However, a new birth can begin, a divine order established within the spirit of man, processing until the salvation of the whole man is completed. Rom. 5:10-11, “For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life, and not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement”. “Atonement” means for us “restoration to favor, a change, or exchange for something else, reconciliation”.

While the spirit of repentant man has now resurrected, that same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead is now at work in the repentant man to bring new life to the fallen soul. This step in God’s divine order is not something man can accomplish from himself, his own strength or ability. But God, because of love and His desire for an intimate relationship with man, He has made for man the availability for this type of relationship. This is a relationship that is to resurrection the soul of the man so that man’s soul may likewise dwell in God’s Holy presence. This speaks of the need to recognize the fallacy of man’s own soul which is the seat of his character. This means a knowing that God and God alone can renovate the soul. Thus, the necessary need to see oneself as corrupt and having a need for God to bring change. Note a direct translation of John 5:39-40, “You search the scriptures, because you think by them to obtain eternal life; and they are those testifying of me; and yet you are not willing to come to me that you may obtain life”.

While many people read and study about the things of God, His desire expressed here is for His creation to come into a relationship that produces His life through the “coming to Him vessel”. That is, a necessary nature change, a soul being renovated into one that responds and manifest God’s mind, His will, His emotions and His desires. This speaks of God’s desire for a many member first-fruit company of people who will make up the remnant of God in the earth. This will be an order of people who are now to manifest and establish the kingdom of God in the earth. This kingdom of God in the earth is the results of having union with God through Christ, including His body of people, a one-minded people who live only to glorify God.

Herein, we can see the coming forth of every willing man with each coming forth in his own order. That is, fulfilling the calling and purpose of God for each created vessel, that is according to God’s original purpose in their birthing into this world. 1 Cor. 15:23 speaks of a first-fruits people coming forth in the order of His purpose first. “But each one in his own order; Christ the first-fruits [head and many member body]; afterword the that are Christ at His appearing”. Christ the first-fruits speaks of the Christ in His completeness which includes a many member people, the head Jesus Christ and the many members of His body. 1 Cor. 12:12, “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body; so also is Christ”.

In the order of God, a season is now upon us as He is calling forth for the appearing of Christ (head and body) and the manifestation of His appearing. For what reason and purpose is this appearing but to bring forth the judgments of God that He might purify the world of darkness and the gross darkness that consumes the minds of carnal man? A light from God is now coming forth to reveal the order of His working kingdom government. This government (nature) is to usher in the repentant nations as the Christ (head and body) is now to appear and manifest the Christ.

1 Cor. 15:24-26  then expresses, “Then cometh the end, when He shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when He shall put down all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign, till He hath put down all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death”. All death shall fall, it shall come to its end; it has run its course while God, according to His divine order, has been making up His dwelling place, His temple. All of God’s wrath shall destroy the fruit of the destroyer at the appearing of God’s Christ and His body of people. This divine order, running and completing its purpose shall eradicate all the carnal governments of this world to establish, in the completion of the end, the kingdom of God in the heavens and the earth. This is a coming together in union, as God shall manifest Himself from His throne through the resurrected ones.

Rev. 21:3-7, “And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying; behold, the tabernacle of God is with men and He will dwell with them and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away. And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold I make all things new. And He said unto me, write: for these words are true and faithful. And He said, unto me, it is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be His God, and he shall be My son”. Followers of God’s divine plan shall know and manifest the fullness of His glorious kingdom.

“Divine Principles”

The word “principle” from the dictionary has the following meaning, “the ultimate source, origin, or cause of something. An endowment, a fundamental truth, law, doctrine, or motivating force”.

The word “divine” speaks loudly to us as to the above word “principle” in its meaning for Christians, “of or like God; given or inspired by God, holy, sacred; devoted to God; supremely, great, good”.

The advancement concerning today’s church system seems to be one of mixed manifestations. While the whole of creation is in a state of groaning and travail, many know only the pain of uncertainty. Also, among the many others, they know only confusion and a life without real purpose. Meanwhile, the word of God states for receiving mankind that the hope which remains shall advance to the realm of purpose being fulfilled. God has purposed that a people shall come forth in knowing complete redemption into the fulness of God’s purpose. Rom. 8:23b, “…. waiting for the adoption [the sons of God by spiritual generation], to wit, the redemption of our body [completing the process to manifest the whole man, spirit, soul and body, into sonship]”. Thus, a pointing to a redeemed people, the generation which God purposed to bring forth from Himself in them becoming His kings and priests. 1 Peter 2:9, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people [possession or acquisition], that you should show forth the praises [virtues] of Him Who has called you out of darkness into [the motion to an object with the purpose of reaching or touching it]His marvelous light”.

This purpose, along with faith, results in “faith” bringing a people into a place of surety. A sureness that encourages and motivates this people into knowing Him, the creator of all things. Faith, a divine principle that becomes a living, divinely implantation. This speaks of those who truly believe as to the reality of seeing Him as He is. This principle brings true ownership with Christ Jesus having the title deed. An ownership that results in this people becoming the workmanship of God and manifesting His glory. Heb. 1:2, “Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son [this expresses the exclusive character of His Sonship – revealing God’s pattern for true sonship]by Whom also He made [prepared] the worlds [ages]”. “Faith”, the inspired purpose God uses as the “proof” or evidence which God receives and response to while making this people complete in Him. In this, He makes up the fulness of Christ in completing and manifesting that fullness in the body of Christ. 2 Tim. 3:16-17, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished into all good works”.

The word “perfect”, as used above points to the fact of one who is fitted, fitting like a joint, perfect adaptation for given uses. In this, God’s workmanship is actively completing a generation who shall stand up as a perfect fitted people to manifest that which the seed of God is. That is, likened into the pattern Son, Jesus Christ, who sends them forth to speak the words of God. These shall be the body of Christ who fulfill the mission even as God purposed it. John 3:34, “for He Whom God hath sent speaks the words [The RHEMA – the word of God in its outward form] of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto Him”. Remember, the Christ has a many member body that makes up the whole Christ, the anointed ones.

Heb. 11:1-3, Now faith [the living divinely implanted principle, them that believe and receive] is the substance [title deed] of things hoped for, the evidence [the proof] of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds [ages] were framed [prepared] by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not [does not depend on feelings] made [came into being] of things which do appear [to shine forth, so as to be seen]”. The words “not seen” above speaks to us of God bringing forth according to His purpose alone. He is the creator and has purposed to bring forth the manifestation of His purpose to fulfill His will. Therefore, God is fulfilling according to His desires, which does not depend upon any prior conditions expressed or implied. Things now seen are the results of God providing the power of seeing, the use of the eyes, things to be looked upon. This means, faith is used of the act of looking even though nothing is seen in the natural. This speaks, that God’s divine principles, which have been put into motion in the invisible are drawn into the visible manifestation by faith. And this kind of faith is becoming the make-up of God’s new creation man.

Along with the above truth, God has an adversary called Satan, one who is actively involved in deceiving God’s people into confusion. By his lies and half-truths, he desires to take away man’s purposed inheritance by blinding men to that inheritance. This truth is confirmed as we consider Job and Satan’s fear of God’s purpose. Job 1:6 reveals, “Now there was a day when the sons of God [considered to be angels, messengers] came to present themselves [took their station, their ordained place] before the Lord [the covenant God in relation to those whom He created] and Satan [the adversary] came also among them”. In considering the meeting taking place, a need to consider that the adversary was a fallen angel who purposed in himself to rise above God while destroying God’s principles and purpose. In this act Satan became a god unto himself. Is this Adam and Eve also did, as well as most of humanity today? How did Satan purpose to accomplish his evil scheme except by seeking to take God’s intended place within the people, to inhabit them himself, to control them in leading mankind against God? One of the greatest avenues these fallen angels use is a system called religion, expressing a need for another god of one kind or another. Carnal religion is a source used to lead the people into yielding to deceit by using half-truths to take from them the full measure of God’s purpose. That purpose of God is to make of them a body for the Christ to dwell in concerning His fulness and second coming.

Let’s note the full measure of God’s principles and the results they bring forth at their being received and faithfully trusted. Acts 17:28, “For in [true meaning is by; being or remaining within] Him [Christ] we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, for we are also His offspring”. In this statement concerning “offspring”, take note that all mankind is descended from Adam, and in that sense are the posterity, the offspring of God. But, consider well, the difference between offspring of God with a fallen nature and those of Christ body who have received Him to dwell within. John 1:13, “Which [who; those who believe, have faith, on His name] were born [begotten, to beget or engender, to bring forth into the world], not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor the will of man, but of God”. An act of God birthing a people to become His dwelling place, His temple. In this, He fulfills His purpose, His principles are released from Himself to dwell within them as King and Lord, His governmental nature which occupies all receiving and believing vessels. These divine principles are God’s nature activated within receiving and submissive vessels that God might take His rightful place in Lordship and Fatherhood. A people, the body of Christ in union with the head Jesus Christ, coming forth to establish God’s eternal kingdom on the earth.

In the verses of 1 Cor. 12:12-13 we can note the unity and oneness of all members of this body of Christ, along with it’s head, “for as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many are one body: so also is Christ [the anointed one; this noun is used of and for the Messiah – pointing to the coming Christ as a head, Jesus, with a many member body]. For by one spirit are we all baptized [pointing to the PNEUMA HAGION, the Holy Spirit] into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond [slaves- also pointing to vessels bound to evil habits] or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit [receiving the new Christ nature]”. This is that baptism spoken of by John the Baptist concerning the Christ who would baptize by the Holy Spirit.

John 1:33b, “…. Upon whom thou see [the actual perception of the object] the Spirit descending and remaining on Him, the same is He which baptizes with the Holy Spirit”. Did not the Holy Spirit descend upon Jesus in the form of a dove to rest upon Him with God’s voice declaring, “This is my beloved Son, hear ye Him? This is the same Holy Spirit that was poured out upon the early church on the Day of Pentecost. It has been declared in the above verses that this same Spirit baptizes each receiving vessel into that one body. That body, is the body of Christ wherein the Son makes His dwelling place. The fulness of the Christ to be manifested unto the world, the second coming of the Christ in His fulness.

In receiving of this same Holy Spirit that dwelt in Jesus, God releases unto the earth Himself in the form typed as waters. These waters have a specific purpose, which is, to water a dry and thirsty land called fallen man. Note the occasion when Jesus net the woman of Samaria at the well. John 4:14 states, “But whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst  [by no means thirst forever; pointing to an age]; but the water that I shall give him shall be [become] in [remaining within as fulfillment comes] him a well  [fountain] of water springing up into everlasting life [the fountain of life]”.

In becoming a people with such a flowing fountain, each chosen vessel must needs understand that such a fountain is not a flow of the humanity of man himself. It, the above scripture declares of a certain age or time when such a life-giving river or fountain shall flow. This life flows when the life-giver dwelling within man has brought the humanity of the fallen-man to an end. That is as Paul refers to the need, being crucified with Jesus, dying daily until completely apprehended by that for which God apprehends us. It is no longer the I that lives but it is Christ living in and through the vessel. Phil. 3:12, “Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect [perfected]: but I follow after [press], if that I may apprehend [overcome for Christ – dying to self] that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus [allow the Holy Spirit to overcome self to fulfill God’s purpose]”.

Note that the divine principles of God’s nature are that for which God created man for. But, when man fell, the evil principles of Satan became a way of life for the fallen man. This created a life-style that is sold out to self without seeing a need for God. But, God’s purpose has never changed, which is, having for Himself a family in His likeness and image. Meanwhile, the man, being a god unto himself continues to allow Satan to deceive him in every aspect of human life. This speaks of man lost in himself, an avenue of deception and death, a separation from God. Note that God’s divine principles are not something you do through works of the flesh but are expressed only as the Christ and His nature dwell and manifest from within. It is His life alone that manifest His character, His principles, His nature which is His divine government manifesting from within each yielded vessel. Christ in you and I released is to manifest our complete and only hope of glory.

Eph. 1:22-23 declares the completion of God’s divine principles as they conquer the vessel to become the manifestation of God’s purpose in our creation. “And hath put [subjected] all things under His [Christ] feet [denotes the place such action extends] and gave Him to be the Head [Jesus Christ] over all things to the church [a people call out from the rest of nations or peoples]. Which is His body [for what purpose?], the fulness of Him [His many members “fill up” the body of Christ, and the body of Christ fill up and completes “the dispensation of the fulness of times”] that fills all in all [Christ fills up all the members with spiritual gifts and graces]”. While the carnal mind finds this truth hard to except, likewise most of the Christian community, many if not most being carnal, find themselves falling short of God’s true purpose. Contrary to this lack, faith exercised by those believing one’s accept the truth of God’s word, a knowing that it is not the vessel who fulfills the principles, but the Christ manifesting from within the vessel. The Christ, the head Jesus and His many member body have these divine principles within to be exercised according to His divine pleasure and purpose. This speaks of dying daily to the fallen man while yielding to the Christ within.

Col. 2:6-10, “As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk you in Him. Rooted and built up in Him and stablished in the faith [the living divinely implanted principle], as you have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the rudiments [basic elementary rules] of the world and not after Christ: For in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And you are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power”. Thus, a coming people who make up the fulness of Christ, filled with His divine principles to establish God’s kingdom on earth.
