One thing that has become a great concern among the various peoples of the earth is that the Christian community, for the most part, has become blind to God’s true purpose for life. This community, called the church, has seemingly lost its way. Meaning that they have departed from life’s true meaning and the reason for which God created the world in general. By taking or choosing the various many paths made available by a fallen carnal mind, this so-called church system has removed itself from the path God purposed for it. Therefore, this system has come to and remains in a fallen condition, separated from God’s purpose. This means that for most of the world, including most of the Christian community, they do not have any true spiritual direction. In being lost without true direction, the world as a whole, rest in a state of confusion and uncertainty. A condition exists; a mind-set of thinking is placing humanity into an uncertain life-style. A life-style of eating, drinking and making merry for tomorrow brings nothing but death, with some thinking death is something to be desires. Is this God’s purpose for His creation?
From the very beginning of creation, God put before His created man a certain future that had but one requirement. The requirement being, choose to obey God’s evidential pathway and receive all the benefits of God’s purpose through obedience. Nevertheless, Adam and Eve, tempted and willingly chose another path that caused them to fall from God’s presence and chosen purpose. This fall placed them into a life of separation from their creator God. In this separation, they lost sight of their true purpose in God. This meant that they now did not know who they were to be in God nor how to fulfill His plan for creation. Adam and Eve lost their way, even as the world of today continues to flounder around with no true direction and purpose. The need that now exists is for mankind to understand a needed renewing and a knowing of God’s plan of redemption. A need to know God’s restoration purpose as it existing from the beginning. In this, unto those who find within themselves a desire for something better in life, a door opens with the right to choose to enter that God opened door. For this purpose, the question often asked, where or how can we find this open door?
God, in expressing His love to help man find this open door, He has left for humanity His word. This word, as directed by God Himself, He caused, through chosen men, for it to be written and placed within a book called the Holy Bible. This is God’s book which was given for the purpose of revealing of Himself to man. This book, while being full of various mysteries and secrets kept from the carnal mind, it also contains a necessary key. This key, the heaven sent Holy Spirit, made available by Jesus Christ on the cross, who willingly comes to dwell within all asking and receiving vessels.
This Holy Spirit, the third member of the Godhead has and is willing to fulfill His ministry of revealing the God of truth and His pathway for redemption. Herein an open door, once entered into, will give understanding concerning the true ways of God. In this, from Genesis to Revelation, the purpose of God from creations beginning until fulfillment becomes clear. This clarity supports the need for man to progressively separate from his carnal ways of confusion. Herein, man needs to know, understand, receive and become those who manifest the nature of God’s sons. That is, God’s family ushering in His eternal kingdom throughout the earth.
In this, the Holy Spirit, according to God’s purpose asks receiving men a question. Are you willing to become God’s fullness? This fullness, from God’s eternal existence is, “let us make man in our likeness and after our image”. This word “likeness” from Webster’s dictionary has the meaning of “the state or quality of being like; similarity. Implies close correspondence in appearance, qualities and nature”. The word “image”, from the same source, has the meaning of “a representation of a person, the visual impression of something produced by reflection from a mirror (the revealed holy scriptures)”. Thus, God’s fullness revealed, first through Jesus Christ, and now declared to become a manifestation through a family of sons who likewise become His likeness and image. This speaks of God filling all redeemed vessels with Himself.
This, God’s purpose is then revealed to each desirous person who willingly walks the revealed pathway through preparation until all things are fulfilled. This understanding and knowing of God’s ways is man’s right that comes from receiving Christ into the life and following Him into that full measure. Eph. 4:13, “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.” Thus, a knowing that God has always purposed for a people’s restoration and this God fulfills in all those who receive the Christ within and begin following Him. In following Him, it is necessary to understand that humanity can in no wise perfect himself. Perfection only comes through submission and obedience to Christ and the cross as man becomes God’s workmanship through sanctification. Eph. 2:10, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them”.
Becoming Christ workmanship speaks of a people whom, in the process of spiritual maturity, they respond and allow Christ to rise up from within them. In this regard, Christ dwelling and manifesting from within a people scatters before them all the enemies that have purposed to destroy God’s created man. In following the revealed understanding that God is uncovering for His obedient people, the conditional mind-sets of a corrupt, immoral world can and are, by the presence of the Holy Spirit, transformed. A life of confusion, without true purpose, is set aside by entering through this door God is willing to open. An open door, because from the beginning God purposed to reveal Himself to His creation. In understanding God’s true purpose, a revealing of Christ enables that people to become even as His is. This revealing of God is according to God and His eternal purpose. 1 John 3:2 states, “Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be [most of the Christian community remain but children spiritually], but we know that when He is revealed [God is now unveiling Himself for spiritual maturity], we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is”.
In this regard, God has always purposed to reveal His secret things, the mysteries of His purpose, that a people might become the manifestation of these mysteries, which is the revealing of Himself. Deut. 29:29 shares for us, “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law [speaking of God’s kingdom government, His nature].” This verse is speaking to a creation, a people, though subject to the laws of a fallen nature, they have opportunity to know restoration. This restoration shall remove all images of captivity and those things that have scattered them from God’s promises. Speaking of those many things settled into man’s carnal mind that still captivates them as prisoners. Deut. 30:3-4 paying attention and noting that which God Himself restores, “that the Lord your God will bring you back from captivity, and have compassion on you, and gather you again from all nations [mindsets] where the Lord has scattered you [because of rebellion]. If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts under heaven, from there the Lord your God will gather you, and from there he will bring you”.
While rebellion against Gods prescribed way has also caused the Christian community to be scattered among the many carnal religious mind-sets and places of captivity, His promise remains intact to all willing to receive and separate. Deut. 30:5-6, “Then the Lord your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed [God’s promises], and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers. And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart [remove the sin-nature] and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live [having the Christ-nature, the mind of Christ].”
How can the above scripture be possible when all things manifesting from fallen humanity portray an opposite mind-set? Note and understand, God in agreement with His Word, raises up from within the Christian community a remnant of people. This remnant, a first-fruits ministry, shall, with an anointed ministry, become a ministry that speaks and manifest a working changing word among all who will receive. Note that God has another Jeremiah generation who are now on the scene to become the anointed ministries of establishing His kingdom. Jeremiah 1:9-10, “Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. See I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms [God given delegated authority], to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant.” God’s eternal purpose remains, to bring forth a new creation ministry to harvest a new creation people.
In what method shall this harvest come forth? In the beginning, God established from Himself an eternal law that accomplishes all His purposes throughout eternity. The law or His nature, as released from Himself is that, “every seed shall bring forth after its own kind”. In this truth as it applies to humanity, man is the field that received the seed and then purposed to bring forth fruit according to the seed planted and received. While much of the world has only received a seed from God’s enemy, a counterfeit religious seed, the true church is receiving the seed as it comes forth from Christ. As the Holy Spirit plants and cultivates the Christ seed within, this seed shall bring forth after its own kind. With the true church being a spiritual womb, its purpose is to receive the Christ seed that shall likewise birth a like kind fruit. For this purpose, the true church, the purified woman received the seed that is now at the time for its birthing.
Rev. 12:1-2 & 5, “Now a great sign appeared in heaven [the spirit realm that also dwells within the vessel]; a woman clothed with the sun [God’s glory on purified saints], with the moon under her feet [delivered from the carnal religious church], and on her head a garland of twelve stars [mind of Christ, God’s divine government]. Then being with child [the true church having received the Christ seed], she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth [birthing of the Christ natured sons]. … She bore a man-child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught up [birthed into the mind and nature of Christ] to God and His throne [dwelling with Christ in His delegated authority].”
Is this season the time for this man-child birthing? As we see God’s people in a state of travail, a spiritual groaning for the time of the birthing of God’s man-child is upon us. Therefore, expect change to come forth from God’s offspring generation, typed by Jeremiah and now appearing to establish the foreordained plan of God. This plan stands in agreement with the statement made by Jesus as He cleansed the temple in Jerusalem during His earthly ministry, a type of the cleansing needed today among the Christian community.
John 2: 18-21, “So the Jews answered and said to Him, what sign do you show us, since you do these things? Jesus answered and said to them, destroy this temple and in three days, I will raise it up. Then the Jews [likened unto today’s carnal religious systems] said, it has taken forty-six years to build this temple [pointing to man’s carnal way vs. God’s spiritual ways], and will you raise it up in three days [pointing to Christ third day resurrection, a type of the resurrection of today’s true church – three days = the third 1000-year day from Christ resurrection]? But he was speaking of the temple of His body [the offspring of his loins, the spiritual house of His appearing through His many saints]”. Thus, the true temple of God is the called, chosen, and justified ones that have become the visible manifestation of an invisible God. This manifestation has been God’s purpose from the beginning, a people who conquer the whole man, spirit, soul and body. In this, God’s people become His eternal dwelling place. Hear and know, the Christ is coming and His glory shall establish itself in all the earth, beginning with His, Christ many member body.
