With many people of today turning away from God’s true word, this turning away is the result of great deception and wickedness as it mingles among the Christian community’s mind-set while having great influence on every level. The religious systems of today, motivated by corporate mind-sets and philosophies of man are like the children of Israel in their day. However, with God seeing the need, He has purposed to bring forth deliverers. God has purposed that Mount Zion (those who are God’s dwelling place on earth within their spirit and soul) shall be set-apart unto Himself in these last of days. On this mount of spiritual maturity a remnant of God’s people are again being gathered to possess the promises of God and claim what is rightfully theirs. This remnant of God is essentially holy, which qualifies them to become the instruments of God, against all the workings of the flesh, the fallen nature of man. Obadiah verse 17 declares, “But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.” This house receives a name change, from Jacob to Israel (Prince of God) as they receive God’s many promises.”
“Possessing our possessions” from the above scripture speaks of a God who is able to restore, heal, and redeem regardless of the devastation. God’s promise is to give back unto His people all that the enemy has stolen. That which the enemy stole was the mind of Christ, the will of God, the emotions of Christ along with His desires. In this restoration, God shall raise up deliverers, those reestablished in the life of God, to bring judgment to these religious houses of flesh, that which is given over to and yields to the carnal mind. The kingdoms, controlled by the world along with humanity, shall again come under the dominion of the one true God. Obadiah verse 21, “Then saviors shall come to Mount Zion to judge the mountains of Esau [the carnal flesh realm], and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s”.
While many people of today are rightfully unhappy with what they see taking place in the organized church systems, God is moving by His Spirit, He is rising up from within His remnant people and taking them out of the mediocre complacent church. Herein they are to become a supernatural expression and manifestation of God from within. From this condition of intoxicating doctrines and traditions, error in vision and with messages full of vomit and filth, God is now imparting unto those who are willing, a manifestation of His glorious miraculous kingdom. A vital key to walking in this pathway of God’s miracles is to stay available to God’s word. John 14:12-13, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in my name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” When blessings come because of your work, your service, or your ministry, it is tempting to accept that this is all God has for you, but this allows complacency to set in. Instead, refuse to allow the blessings of God’s grace on your work or ministry lead you to think that He may not be ready to do even more in your life. Keep your heart set and ready for the next advancement in and for His kingdom.
God delights in moving His people from grace to grace. God delights in purifying the old flesh man, that He might again cause His Word to become flesh through His people. A people that are willing to die to the flesh man that they might awaken to the life of Christ. Becoming the word made flesh that they likewise might behold His glory and manifest to the fullness of all they see and receive. Jesus became that we might become. John 1:14 and 16, “And the word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. …And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace”. Fullness comes not from the use of any worldly methods, but it does come from a meek, gentle acceptance of the implanted word of God that He has caused to take root in the heart of yielded vessels. It is self-deception to believe that God’s goal for His people is merely the hearing of the word. God’s expectation is that each might experience a transformation of life, which results in the manifestation of that received word. James 1:22, “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.” The person who merely hears the word is subject to forget it, while the one who acts upon and continues in the word is blessed, to become the expression of that word.
2 Peter 1:10, “Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble.” To avoid the possibility of falling into apostasy, the believer must abound in the moral graces of God. If a person does not grow in virtues, he may lapse into his old sins. Therefore, the believer should live in such a way as to make their calling and election certain. Herein, faith in the will and purpose of God, from each vessel, finds them exercising it daily. Faith is that which takes what God says as being yea and amen, trusting and knowing the God in whom they serve. To obey produces the substance necessary to bring forth the visible manifestation of God and His purpose. Heb. 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Herein is the title deed that secures for us the things hoped for, the ability to see that which Christ is that we might become as He is. What is He but our deliverer? What do we become except deliverers likened unto His likeness and image? Becoming a remnant of people, coming forth to present and impart deliverance to humankind, through Christ. Love is the platform in which these deliverers stand. A remnant of people who have taken on the characteristic of Luke 10:27, “So he answered and said, you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with your entire mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”
As revelation comes to affect God’s remnant, many people would look upon these soon coming deliverers with this declaration, “they are making themselves as God’s.” While there are some who would like to make themselves as God’s, this remnant people have no such ambitions. Love, which rules their lives, is the motivating factor that has allowed God to bring about a nature change within them, from the sin nature to the Christ nature. This nature change of mind, self-will, emotions, and desires awaken in them the new man, which manifests the likeness and image of God, and His love. This likeness and image enables these overcomers to have dominion over God’s creation as He purposed from the beginning. “Having dominion over” speaks of a people coming forth as deliverers to establish God’s kingdom order in the earth. A people becoming the word made flesh again as the heirs and co-heirs with Christ. This nature change presents the God of creation unto the entire world. Becoming the word speaks of faith that becomes creative in its actions because God presents Himself through these deliverers. Heb. 11:3, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” This word “framed” has the meaning of “to arrange, set in order, equip, adjust, complete what is lacking, make fully ready, repair and prepare.” The worlds or ages, framed by God’s word, and now worked into the nature of God’s remnant people are that which will make visible the everlasting kingdom of God. A remnant to bring deliverance to a bound creation, that it might again manifest the glory of God.
When speaking of a people becoming the glory of God, it is that which results in having an on going relationship with God by truly knowing Him. A knowing Him is the seeing Him as He is. In seeing Him as He is, we find ourselves becoming the purified ones that overcome temptation and remain pure. 1 John 3:2-3, “Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.” This is a knowing that in seeing Him unveiled a transformation into His likeness results in righteous living. Maturing from the place as a child to a mature pure vessel speaks of a maturity that results in the word manifesting itself through the changed vessel. With a remnant glorifying God, the unknowing world of those who do not know Him, they begin to see Christ in the manifestation of His revealed word through the nature of the new creation man. Yes, deliverers shall come.
Gal. 6:1, “Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted”. This scripture directs qualified, spiritual equipped believers to minister restoration. A ministry of deliverance that increases as maturity enables the manifested word to have dominion unto all God’s creation. Peter, the apostle declares it in these terms. 2 Peter 1:2-4, “Grace, and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust”. Partaking of God’s divine nature results in the maturing of His manifesting word. This manifesting word is the nature that beings deliverance to those trapped and bound by the course nature of this sin cursed world. This deliverance results from sharing a deep spiritual union with Christ. In addition, even now, deliverers have come to maturity and God is sending them forth. The sending of them forth in the days ahead shall be on the increase. Therefore let us look toward God; for redemption is near us, it is even at the door.
