With the church being God’s entity upon the earth for this age and given to humanity, there is a place within man’s soul (the church) likened as a spiritual womb for the receiving of a seed and for that seed (Christ Jesus) to bring forth after its own kind. For 2000 years now, this entity, with all its ups-and-downs has been the expression of God in the earth. This church, while fulfilling God’s purpose, Paul in his writings to the Corinthians, reveals to us the true position and that for which the church exist. In this revelation, we must be satisfied to understand that there is a need for a transition, the needed change that is now upon us. 1 Cor. 13:9-10 states, “For we know in-part and we prophesy in-part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in-part will be done away”. The church, though an in-part order, is to receive the seed of perfection, and to allow that seed to mature until it has reached a time of birthing. This birthing is to do away with the in-part so that, that which is perfect might make its appearance. “Perfect” as used in the above verse as the meaning of, “to come to completion”. Thus, a birthing bringing forth a man-child who appears to fulfill and usher in God’s new day. This man-child, being born from the woman, the church is to dwell in God’s dwelling place order, His throne room authority. Rev. 12:5, “She [church] bore a man-child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught up to God and His throne”.
This is speaking of a remnant of first-fruits people (called a man-child) who God births from out of the church into another dimension, one called the throne room. “Caught up” is from a Greek word meaning, “to seize, snatch away, and take by force”. This is likening unto the Holy Spirits action in transferring Philip from one location to another and when Paul while on the road to Damascus was caught up to Paradise. This suggest the exercise of a sudden force, a people, while walking upon the earth, they have their life and relationship completely influenced from the realm of God’s dwelling place and throne room. That is to say, they are now submissive only and totally, to the God that dwells within them.
In reading and studying Heb. 8:1-13, we begin to see more clearly the need for such a transition by understanding that the old in-part order of the church nor the old Levitical priestly order, God’s former covenant with man, was not nor could it be sufficient. Heb. 8:7 states, “For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second”. While the first covenant given through Moses with its ritualistic services, its earthly-minded sanctuary, and the church, after just a few short years of the heavenly spiritual God given liberty, also begin to reject the new covenant brought forth through Christ Jesus. They rejected this new covenant by reverting to ritualistic laws and services, to cease from walking with God in the Holy Spirit. A walking with Christ brings change in humanity by the changing of their nature, but this change greatly needed and mostly rejected by man and nullified from his life. Heb. 8:10 & 13, “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their mind and write them on their hearts [soul – where He writes His nature] and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. … In that He [God] says, a new covenant, He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away”.
This second covenant, instituted by God through Christ Jesus, though rejected by most of the Christian community, is awakening in some for the birthing of this man-child. This second covenant represents a people becoming the spiritual fulfillment of the Holy of Holies, God’s perfect tabernacle in man here on the earth. As spoken in Rev. 4:1-2 we see that God’s desire for this new day people is that they would ascend into a higher dimension and begin to see things not yet seen, that is the throne room order of God. “After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice, which I heard, was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this. Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven [also the heaven within], and One sat on the throne”.
The revealing and the dwelling in this throne-room order of God speak of a people, ascending unto that dimension. They not only declare, but they also begin to manifest the glory of the latter house, a glory that covers and emanates from this manifesting people. Haggai 2:9 shares, “The glory of this latter house shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts. And in this place I will give peace, says the Lord of hosts”. In the above scripture a greater glory promised, is this the glory Paul wrote about to the Ephesians concerning the day of redemption, their time of restoration? Eph. 1:3-6, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons [receiving our inheritance as heirs and co-heirs] 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”.
Adoption is the act of God concerning those who are declared heirs and co-heirs with Christ. Thus, if we are of Christ, these promises are ours by the fulfilling of God’s promised “fullness of times”, the progressive purpose to mature up in Him. Gal. 3:29, “And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise”. This promise of adoption comes not because we recognize His death on the cross for our sins only, but true adoption comes because we no longer remain slaves to an in-part order, and become the one’s who mature unto sonship under the new covenant, that is to say, a nature change. Gal. 4:1-7, “Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father. Even so, we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law [the old covenant], to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts [soul], crying out, Abba Father! Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ”. Therefore, it is only by the new covenant that adoption comes forth with adoption being the restored place in those who are perfect.
Today, a trumpet is sounding out a loud and clear call with God releasing an anointing unto those who respond to the call. Herein a remnant man-child is now standing up with these greater manifestations. These manifestations shout out clearly, consider your ways. Haggai 1:5-7, “Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways: You have sown much, and bring in little; you eat, but do not have enough; you drink, but you are not filled with drink; you clothe yourself, but no one is warm; and he who earns wages, earn wages to put into a bag with holes. Thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways!” Is not the time for change upon us? Is not the time for all in-part orders, having now been fulfilled, they are now destined to pass away? God has promised that the in-part order would have but two days and after that perfection. Hosea 6:1-2, “Come, and let us return to the Lord; for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days [2000 years] He will revive us; on the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight”. Then Jesus comes, declaring a prophetic word, which reaches forth unto the coming forth of His man-child, the birthing of our day. Luke 13:32, “And He said to them, go, tell that fox, behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow [2 days – 2000 years], and the third day I shall be perfected”. This is speaking of the body of Christ in spirit, soul and then the body.
Again we say, restoration is upon us, the glory of God’s true house is now come and God, in and through the Christ manifesting through the man-child, shall establish God’s kingdom on this earth. Haggai 2:21-23, “Speak to Zerubbabel [seed of Babel], governor of Judah, saying: I will shake heaven and earth. I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms; I will destroy the strength of the Gentile kingdoms. I will overthrow the chariots and those who ride in them; the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. In that day, says the Lord of host, I will take you, Zerubbabel My servant, the son of Shealtiel [I have asked God], says the Lord, and will make you like a signet ring; for I have chosen you, says the Lord of hosts”.
“Signet ring” represents an article of special value to its owner and when seeing it, a knowing that it represents its owner. Thus, Zerebbabel (a seed birthed out of Babel) comes from that place of mixture and confusion but now changed to become that which represents the owner of us all, which is the nature of Christ being manifest in the earth. This people are no longer of mixture or of the in-part order, but are becoming those, which are perfect in this time of restoration. Is not this our day, a coming out of this Babylon system that rules the world to becoming that restored people of God? These become the vessels chosen and elected by God to establish His kingdom on earth. God’s kingdom is a kingdom that the whole of creation is crying out for, a time when restoration shall affect all of God’s creation.
