“Of Full Stature”

 

The church of today is living in a time and season when God is in the process of a separation because, in a progressive fashion, God is bringing forth a people to the fullness of the stature of Christ. In this, the church is to know this time of separation as the fruit of the good seed of God from the fruit of the bad seed of the evil one is accomplished. Remember, the church age has had its time of purpose, which was, to become a spiritual womb for God to plant His seed into for the birthing of a many member son. Is not the time of this birthing at hand; is it not now upon us? This is that time for the birthing of this son because faith and knowledge, given through spiritual revelation, is bringing forth the unity of Christ and making up God’s perfect man.

Eph. 4:13-15, “till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head – Christ – “.

Note in verse thirteen above, that the word “perfect” as used here is a Greek word which has the meaning of “one who has reached maturity as to age or qualification; that which has reached its end; hence perfect”. The context allows us to know that this state of being perfect qualifies that person to walk in the unity of Christ as a member of His overcoming body. This membership becomes a part of the whole and as the body of Christ; their purpose is to manifest the love of Christ in defeating the lies and deceitfulness of the carnal structure that is seeking to displace the true church of God. Thus, the time of separation speaks of the tare’s removal from the field called the generation of Christ, the wheat.

Note and remember that at the time of God’s creation, He instituted a law of reproduction that would affect every generation. This law speaks that “every seed shall bring forth after its own kind”. According to this law, today’s generation is seeing the evidence of such a law of reproduction bringing forth its fruit. Observation from both a spiritual and natural standpoint reveals the fruit of each seed that was planted. With the church, typed as a woman, and created for receiving seed, what seed has its members, individually and collectively, received? The fruit of each seed received now reveals itself because the time of maturity has come. The seed received will manifest the fruit of the lawless corrupt one or the fruit of the many member body of Christ.

The seed of the lawless one has the evidential fruit of carnal doctrines conjured up by the trickery of carnal minded men. It produces cunning craftiness as the results of deceitful plotting for deceiving the people to accept a far-off God that desires not to share His power and authority with man. Thus, these men are manufacturing this far-off God who leaves His creation to their own carnal desires and devices. In this, they follow their own self will, their own lustful emotions and the carnal minds own deceitful thinking ability. 2 Peter 2:1 states loudly, “But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction”.

         Herein, we have a so-called church that has fallen into the professing position of being a people having only a form of godliness without having any of God’s power of expression. “Heresies”, as used above, is a word that originally denoted the making of a choice or having an option. Its meaning has now progressed to having a preference because of an opinion or a sentiment, it easily slipped into a mode of disunity, choosing sides, having diversity of belief, creating dissension, and substituting self-willed opinions for submission to the truth. Heresies dominant use in the New Testament signifies different sects, people professing opinions independent of the truth of God.

However, thanks to our God, He has His seed also present. This seed is bringing forth the fruit of the Christ that expresses God’s love in the form of His nature. This is a people who are birthed as God’s man-child. These are to reveal God to the world, having divine power and authority from God while establishing His kingdom in all the earth. For this coming man-child, a key is given to an open door into the heavens. This is a door opened where no man can shut out the believing saint. Rev. 3:7-8, “… These things says He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who open and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens: I know your works. See I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept my word, and have not denied my name [nature]”.

In this, we see a birthing, the coming forth from among the church, a first-fruits people who have received from the Father an understanding of the mysteries of God. Those things once hidden as mysteries have now become an open door for knowledge and understanding to flow from within each receiving vessel. This knowledge and understanding, when received, results in a nature change with Christ dwelling within men who now manifest Him unto the world about them. This man-child, being of those who Christ has conquered in spirit, soul and body, have matured into God’s throne-room order. These shall now proceed from God’s throne-room to be presented to the world as they reveal the Christ into that same world.

Who are these who become of full stature with Christ? Are they not the first-fruits of the harvest? Are they not the man-child birthed from out of the women church, to finish the seven-day plan of God? That is, a plan purposed and fulfilled to make men in God’s likeness and image. Meaning a many member man would become the expression of God in the earth while establishing His kingdom. In this expression of the church’s victorious offspring, some of the world’s carnal minded men shall finally begin to humble themselves before God’s as they begin to worship the Christ and receive His accomplished work on the cross. Rev. 3:9, “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan [carnal church], which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee”.

The above verse speaks of a people who have conquered, becoming a people who have put all things beneath their feet in victorious living as the first-fruits of God. “I (God) will make them to come and worship before thy (first-fruits) feet” speaks of recognizing the glory of God manifesting from these first-fruits as the results of the work of the cross of Christ within them. In them, the carnal world has been conquered and placed beneath their feet, a sign of total victory. Therefore, from the carnal church as they come out from among it, a people shall begin to recognize the same need, a need to allow the cross of Christ to do a work in them. Realizing, their need to forsake carnal religion for the eternal work of Christ’ sacrifice, the cross.

These glorified ones, the overcomers, the man-child is now sent forth to glorify Christ in all things. Manifesting all they have received from the Father because of their faithfulness to Him against all the odds that stood against them. They, having overcome all temptations in the midst of tribulation shall bring glory to God’s holiness. Rev. 3:10, “Because you have kept my command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth”. These glorified ones are the faithful one’s who only do the things they see their Father do, they only say the things they hear their Father say and as such, their works are not their own works, but the works of the Father who sends them. In this hour of trials coming upon the whole earth, a carnal church remains. These of the earth, the carnal church, shall know the severity of this time of testing. They shall feel the wrath of God against all carnality, with the opportunity, because of Gods first-fruits, to be humbled before God.

Thus, the world shall see the coming forth of a full measured people, those who have become a glory unto God because perfection has become the measure of their stature. These are those, who are no longer of the earth, earthly, but find themselves as the first-fruits of God’s mighty harvest. These are of those who become bone of His bone, and flesh of His flesh, the whole body of Christ, edified in love. Eph. 4:16, “from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love”.

Note the transformation of this first-fruits people, a people who were once dead to Christ, but are now dead to the world and its carnal nature. Having died in Christ to carnality, they now live in Christ as the heavens of God. Remember, He is not an afar off God. No, but He lives within His fruitful people as they likewise live in Him. Eph. 2:4-10, “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ [by grace you have been saved], and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the 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 in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them”.

Note that heavenly fruit only comes through dwelling with Him in heavenly places. Meaning, an order of heaven is now within those of us who have received Him. In receiving Christ within, within us is the dwelling place of God who progressively matures us until influenced only by the Christ in the heavens within. The heavens within speak of a new nature, one that responds only to the mind, the will, the desire and emotions of God. Thus, a man-child birthed from God to become His created purpose. These know a new birthing into that of becoming one “of full stature”.

    Late yesterday about 19h00 whilst driving home it became very dark and started raining. Also, looking out the window it was very dark as above and behind me the sky and sun was covered in dark clouds. As i kept looking i saw this very bright light. It was very dark and the light was so bright reflecting in my vehicle’s mirrors. I looked and saw the sun as a huge big bright ball between the dark sky and just where the horizon is, touching the earth. It was so bright and big and i said out loud ‘i have never seen something like this before in my life. It was amazing and so beautiful. And then i knew He spoke and i said it out load ‘the sun of righteousness is rising over you with healing in its wings”. And i said “Lord i know it and believe. Over all the earth. His sons to set creation free in this time of darkness”.

    And it was so amazing, it was dark all around and it seemed as if the sun was rising, not setting because the dark clouds was moving up and away so that this beautiful bright sun was revealed all the way from the bottom, the whole circle, to the top of the sun. The Only light was the sun, the whole full perfect brilliant sun. And that made it look like sunrise and not sunset. And because there were black clouds around it, it stood out so brilliantly. My words cant explain it all. But i knew spiritully what was happening.

    THEN!! 
    As i looked in front i saw this beautiful rainbow. It was so bright i gasped. I kept looking and then i saw it made the circle from one end to the other. Not broken or obscured by any clouds. I kept looking as it stretched from one point where it reached the earth to the other point where it went down into the sea. And again i said “His promises are true and fulfilled. Its complete. The full circle has been reached and displayed”. And then whilst it seemed the sun was getting bigger and the sky started lighting up brilliantly, yet another rainbow appeared alongside the other. The first rainbow was so bright, the colours so perfect. These rainbows reached from one end to the other. It did not matter where i drove it kept getting brighter and moved reaching the earh on the one side and the dark, dark sea on the other side. Also, i said “This brightest and first rainbow represents the truth of all matters, being the real in the spiritual realm and the second respresenting it on the earth”. I was surrounded by this awesome display. The Sun looking as if it was rising although it was early evening and very dark and the bright rainbows.  I pondered all this and thanked Father for His promises that are true and being fulfilled in our earth as well. Also that He knows the times from the beginning to the end. He very much impressed in and upon me that He is doing this according to His word and when He made His covenant with Abraham He swore to Himself as there is no one else greater than Himself that He could have done it with.  He is in control and completing all as He planned and exactly on time and In time.

    It stayed with me and so i went to bed with this awesome reality and glorious confirmation in my spirit. Pondering and trusting and then ‘now and then’ the carnal mind wondering “What now” from here onwards. I could not read or do anything else but kept pondering this awesome revelation and display i experienced and then when i fell asleep i dreamt:

    Dear friends i dreamt:
    I saw the daughter i brought forth was ready to deliver her son. Her only son. She was ready to birth and lying down. I saw that this son was almost overdue. She was asking “why is he not moving to my womb”?  I said that she must wait and listen as i speak. 
    Then i spoke to the son in her and called his name. He recognised my voice. I told this daughter “your son knows me and he heard my voice, he knows me from before he was put in you to be birthed”.  “He knows me and i know him from before he was here”. 
    This son then stood up in her, his head rising and i could see how her skin stretched when he heard my voice and listened and reacting and seeking to be birthed. He was listening and looking for the channel to get out. He was leaping with joy to be birthed inside her and i could see his movement just underneath her very thin skin now just covering him, his completed form. She was crying and desperate to give birth. And i spoke kindly to her and told her that she is blocking his way to the womb as she is lying with her head on top of the way to the womb by lifting up her head like she was busy doing thinking she was helping. I helped her and showed her the right position to enable her son to be born. And i called to this son, calling his name he had before he was put in her body, and he responded by lifting his head in her, her skin stretching and me seeing his head and body standing up. Wanting to be birthed, trying to get out.

    She then listened and  changed her birthing position so that this son could not go into her head but into the womb to be born.
    End of tge dream.

    I dont have the words to describe what i am feeling, tears of joy welling up as i am sharing this with you. It is so precious and i am just surrounded and filled with His precious presence to the extent that i can hear it. 
    I know i can share this with you. I cant share it with anyone else unless Father says speak. But its not the sharing but the reality and meaning of this marvelous revelation.
    And it is His doing and for His glory. We are only the vessels in which and through which He manifests Himself.
    May you also be blessed and encouraged my friends.
