God, who is a God of love, moved from within Himself as He created for Himself a man. This created man, so loved by God, is to be God’s tabernacle, His dwelling place. In making for Himself a man for His dwelling place, God, during the time of creation instituted and set into motion an eternal law which is purposed to continually increase and enlarge itself as His intended dwelling place. The dwelling places that He called His mansions are many in number. John 14:2-3, “In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself; that where I am, there you may be also”.
The word “prepare” as used above has the meaning of “to make ready, prepare, and make arrangements”. Therefore, Jesus Christ the head of the body of Christ in becoming man’s sacrifice has and is making for Himself, through the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit, a people to become His dwelling place. Note the prayer that Jesus prayed unto God at the time when He was preparing to return unto the Father. John 17:9-11, “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours. And all mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them. Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to you. Holy Father, keep through your name [nature] those whom you have given me that they may be one as we are”. (Also read John 17:20-26) Herein, God’s purpose is to keep His people who live in this world that He might dwell within them to manifest the fullness of His stature through them as He did through Jesus, a people who are becoming His full stature.
The necessity is for man to remember that God at the time of creation was creating man to become His dwelling place and He purposed for the man to multiply and become a many-numbered family. To accomplish this, God incorporated and spoke forth an eternal law, placing it into motion that it might fulfill that stated purpose. God’s eternal purpose was to plant an eternal seed within any receiving man (male and female), enabling them to subdue and then replenish all of His creation. In this purpose, the man is to be fruitful and multiply, to fill the earth with God’s manifesting presence while having dominion with Him. This eternal law of reproduction (read Gen. 1:3-20) is the law instituted and purposed to bring forth “after its own kind”.
In Jesus Christ, He through His birth, death, burial, resurrection and ascension, became that seed for all receiving humanity. The Christ seed, planted within the souls of these receiving men, is to bring forth after its own kind, the birthing of a many member body that is to become the dwelling place mansions of God on earth. Herein we see the purpose of the church-age, a people, elected by God through submission, to become His many member body, that is to say, His dwelling place. With the Christ seed dwelling within them, the Holy Spirit begins to progressive increase the seed’s growth that it might finally manifest itself in God’s glory and power. Herein, the seed received is in a growing stage, progressively maturing until the earth shall finally see the mansion of the Father, one with many rooms. That is, God manifesting Himself through His mansion, His tabernacle, His purposed dwelling place, bringing forth after its own kind.
Know that every seed planted has within itself a purposed growing season which leads to a time of harvest. As written within the book of Hosea, note the time needed to minister to the Israelites and a returning them back to the God of their Fathers. To these people, even as it is among the church of today, a need for a ministry of restoration is evident. While the Christian community during our time, finds itself separated from the glory that was evident within the early church. Our need is to return to being faithful to Christ and Him alone. The modern day church needs to forsake all the other gods manifesting among them in the form of humanism, psychological mindsets, purpose driven doctrines and modern day thinking patterned after the carnal minds of carnal men and their self-help programs. It is in the present tense now that a trumpet is blowing, a call is coming forth that declares restoration time is upon the church and the harvest of the first fruits has come. These first fruits, the manifestation of the matured Christ seed is now coming to their time of fullness. Note and understand that another third day is upon us. Note from Hosea 6:1-2 he gives a clear description concerning God’s three-day purpose in restoring His glory to His people. “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 [3rd 1000 year day] He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight”.
Has not the church during its 2000-year existence found itself in need of continual repentance? God has revealed His plan and it is evident that for 2000 years of church history it has continually fallen into apostasy and spiritual adultery, even while God would remain faithful. Has not God continued in loving His people with healings imparted to those ones who would cry out to Him, even during the time of their being torn? While the church continues to be stricken because of stubborn rebelliousness against God, He continues to bind up all those who cry out to Him. Let us remember God’s law of reproduction, every seed shall bring forth after its own kind. In this, the promise remains unto those who humble themselves and seek God’s face. This word “seek” has the meaning of “to diligently look for, to search earnestly until the object of the search is located”. In seeking God’s face, we understand that His glory, His present tense presence is that for which we seek. A presence that is not just fuzzy feelings or goose bumps, but an evidential manifestation of Christ manifesting Himself from within to affect the area wherein the person or people are standing, a manifestation of Christ in all their existence of living.
In this, let us remember God’s promise to a faithful people. Haggai 1:9, “The glory of the latter house shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts. And in this place I will give peace, say the Lord of hosts”. The church, in its former state, in its beginning, revealed and manifested the glory of God that shook up the then known world in approximately two and one half years. However, with apostasy and spiritual adultery established in it shortly after the early church saints passed from the scene and the glory of that early house decreased until it is almost completely departed. Now there stands a visible church as the world looks upon it today, one without power and glory. Nevertheless, there is coming forth a seed in its day, which is a day of fulfilling the promise of God’s greater glory. This glory shall usher in God’s third day manifestations to establish His kingdom here on earth. Within this kingdom, God’s glory dwells. A kingdom of people who are His dwelling place, the prepared places of His habitation that are ready and coming to completion to shine forth through the whole of God’s creation.
It was 2000 years ago, that Christ came to the Israelites as the Messiah, but as He made His appearance among them they did not even recognize nor receive Him. In their rejecting Jesus Christ, that which God purposed would continue because Christ was to become the planted seed of the kingdom. Within this kingdom, which is coming from within God’s dwelling place, the glory of God shall manifest itself from His throne-room. Understanding given to God’s people is that the throne-room of God’s kingdom dwells within them. Because of God’s declaration, that the kingdom of God is within, and within His kingdom is His throne-room of life. On the day of Pentecost, those 2000 years ago, the Christ Jesus which ascended back into the Father then sent forth the power, the authority and the glory of the throne-room to those 120 disciples which were waiting as Christ had instructed them. Pentecost is the annual feast known as the first fruits. With these 120 being the first fruits of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirits authority empowered these disciples to receive within them the Christ seed for the birthing called “the church”. These became the powerhouse church which affected the then known world. This same authority remains available to the church of today, as they are to birth the man-child body of Christ, the fullness of the Christ seed that He planted within them. Will the church of today also reject the Christ as they rejected Him those 2000 years ago? They mostly rejected Him because He did not come in the form and fashion they supposed. What about the form and fashion of the Christ who is appearing in the world of today in a manner foreign to the religious philosophies ministered today?
Therefore, rejection is within most of the Christian community of today, as they are becoming the apostate and spiritual adulterous church in most of their activities. Meanwhile God is blowing another sounding trumpet. This trumpet is sounding out the time and season for all receiving saints to mature into the first fruits of God’s harvest field. In this, the invitation is being extended from God’s throne-room, which is within us, as it makes available that same power, which is that same authority, which is that same glory that had it’s beginning in the early church. This trumpet, in it’s sounding out, is the promise that this latter church, these third day saints, are those who shall usher in the glory of the latter house in greater manifestations.
Lest we forget, a looking into God’s throne-room reveals for us a mighty river of life flowing that is pure in it nature. Rev. 22:1-5, “And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. And they shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever”. Let us recall that out of our inner most being shall flow rivers of living water. Likewise we are also told that in the continuous act of overcoming we shall sit with Christ in His throne even as He sit down with His Father in His throne. Rev. 3:21, “To Him who overcomes I will grant to sit with me on my throne, as I also overcame and sat down with my Father on His throne”. Herein, God’s elected first fruits shall manifest the authority of God’s throne-room that dwells within, an authority that shall touch and change the nations.
Again, with the throne-room of God’s kingdom authority being within, the pureness of God flows as a river through these birthed ones who come out from among that apostate church because of their obedience and submission to God alone. These have become a church without spot or blemish. The path upon which they walk is a path that no fowl knows of, a path without thorns and thistles and upon it dwells the tree of life. By becoming a people that no longer live under the curse, God’s kingdom now flows from within these vessels as they behold His face, resulting in a people manifesting the nature of Christ as He writes His name within their souls. (Read Heb. Chapter 8). Constantly standing in the light of God, the river brings forth the twelve fruits of God’s kingdom, that is to say God’s divine government (meaning of the number 12, His name) which brings healing to all nations as the revealing of Christ comes forth from within His body, His mansion, and His dwelling places.
Is not God’s third day coming upon the church during this present season? A season of fullness is coming forth to bring not only the tribulation judgment but also the establishing of God’s glorious kingdom here on earth. Have you received that seed called Christ? If so, a call is coming forth that declares the harvesting of the great harvest, a time of the passing away of the former 2000 years of living, as the Apostle Paul declares it in 1 Cor. chap. 13, an in-part order (a knowing in-part and prophesying in-part). This new beginning is even now declaring and ushering in God’s third day people. Therefore, the trumpet, the call is sounding out, arise and shine, for God’s glory is come. In faith, take hold of the law of the seed, a seed bringing forth after its own kind. God’s third day is the fulfilling of God’s seven-day plan that began with Adam and is progressively continuing until this third day from Jesus Christ. This speaks of the harvest coming as God’s first-fruit man-child makes an appearance to manifest the nature of Christ before the whole world. Do you hear God’s third day trumpet?
