When speaking of a new age concerning God’s eternal purpose, could the scriptures be declaring and revealing to us His purpose for eternity. When considering eternity, it must be understood that He is speaking of an existence without time. Today’s ministry, those chosen by God for this end-time season, is speaking of an appearing manifestation with insight as to this part of God’s eternal purpose. Rev. 10:5-6 draws are attention to God’s purpose in giving understanding to those who seek to follow Him. “And the messenger which I saw [the actual perception of the object shown] stand upon the sea [victory over the carnal church order] and upon the earth [conquering the unregenerate nations] lifted up his hand to heaven [pointing to God’s dwelling place, the realm of spiritual perfection and authority], and swore by Him That lives forever and ever, Who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer [speaking of no more delay in executing His vengeance]”.
With “time” being no more, the purposes God had concerning the realm of time is to come to its completion. Meaning that each age which was a part of the realm of time is being made complete. That is, the ages have been fulfilled according to their purpose. The time has come for eternity to dwell and be expressed through God’s people. Meaning, that the purpose for the ages of time and their being fulfilled is needed no more. Why? Because God has formed, fulfilled, and consumed all receiving and yielded vessels as they become one with God and His purpose. Hence, a perfect kingdom of people dwelling within God’s creation. In this, recall that time has periods of light and darkness, but now, Col. 1:13-26 states, “Who has delivered us from the power [authority] of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom of His Dear Son; In Whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins [time of responding to the sin-nature]: Who is the image of the invisible God, the Firstborn of every creature: For by Him was all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him [pointing to two lines meeting at a certain point – becoming one with God]”. An understanding must be maintained that by Jesus Christ all things are fulfilled to come to the end of times purpose.
An ongoing prelude to the end of time arrives to bring the proclamation of preparation and it is now coming to a end because it is being finished and maturing into the realm of perfection. This is speaking of fulfilling the purpose for our beginning, the time when we were born from our mother’s womb, which includes God’s purpose and reason for our natural birth. Preparation for completeness is now merging with the sounds of heaven. Hearing ears and seeing eyes are beholding Him Who became our sacrifice that we might be one in Him. Rev. 10:7 speaks, “But in the days [time] of the voice of the seventh angel [messenger], when he shall begin to sound, the mystery [sacred secret, once concealed but now open to be partaken of and to become] of God should be finished [it has reached its end, hence perfect], as He hath declared to His servants the prophets [those who speak for God]”.
What results does this “it is finished” bring? 1 Cor. 15:50-53, “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood [mortal human being] cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption [living according to the sin-nature] inherit incorruption [immortality]. Behold [calling attention to something outside self], I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep [used for physical death], but we shall all be changed. In a moment [atom], in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump [the seventh trumpet]; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [that which is subject to death] must put on immortality”.
Herein, special notice should be given to this fact, a coming to and manifesting spiritual perfection in man’s spirit, soul and body. A last trump, concerning the ages of time is now upon us, with a distinct declaration from God. A sounding trumpet which says, come forth into the fullness that I, God, have made ready for you. In this, all the death realm that has reigned throughout the ages of time shall cease. It is coming to an end because preparation has run its course, and the seventh trumpet of maturity is sounding. 1 Cor. 15-54, “So when the corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, death is swallowed up in victory [declaring the truth of Christ and the overcoming men all becoming one]”.
Living in and with Christ speaks loudly of a great change. Becoming one with Christ speaks of living an endless life without the sin nature. Yes, man’s realm of time is coming to an end. An end which speaks of manifesting that which Christ is to confound the world in righteous judgment. This sounding trumpet of God is a message of resurrection. A realm of life that reveals the Christ, His head and many member body. This completed body of Christ will stand to manifest the heavens, the throne-room order of God and His glory. This realm is a realm where flesh and blood cannot dwell, for it does not inherit the kingdom of God. With the descending of Christ in His return, His return brings forth the glory of His heavenly realms. Also, creation shall know the reality of the body of Christ, who have spiritually matured into Christ in His ascension, His throne-room order. These shall, in unity descend, they shall be manifested with Him at His coming.
1 Thess. 4:16-17, “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout [a word of command coming from union and fellowship], with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead [denotes dead bodies, corpses whose souls and spirits have been with Christ] in Christ shall rise first [their dead bodies]: Then we which are alive, and remain, shall be caught up [even as Philip was caught away in Acts 8:39] together with them [those receiving their renewed dead bodies] in the clouds [groups of people] to meet the Lord in the air [this word in Greek means the air from sea level to the mountain top, not into the atmosphere]: and so shall we ever be with the Lord [our eternal dwelling place by resurrection, or translation]”.
Here God declares an eternal dwelling place wherein a spiritual perfected people are caught up into Him, from out from the realm of carnality and death. Separated through Christ from our physical life-style into our inheritance, a life-style of change into a spiritual spirit, soul and body vessel. In fulfilling God’s declaration, a new manifestation is now come. We shall know a complete change as the corruptible puts on incorruption and mortality puts on immortality. The progression of becoming the perfect man comes as each man receives the Christ sent Holy Spirit. In this progression, man’s justification is received from the outer court Feast of Passover, which is received because of having faith in the work of the cross. Then, made available is the Feast of Pentecost wherein the Holy spirit filled vessels begin to know and are processed through the sanctifying work of this Holy Spirit. Herein, the progressive change from a sin-nature renews the soul of man to become a restored vessel of a Christ nature people. Herein, this same people not only enter into the kingdom of God but they are made ready for a complete new birth. This is a birth affecting man’s soul which is made perfect in Christ to then overtake the body in preparation of a body being glorified.
Remember, movements from heaven are affecting the earth and new manifestations are coming forth. Let’s note Luke 24:36-39 which speaks of the resurrected Jesus appearing. “And as they thus spoke, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen [the actual presence of bodily sight] a spirit. And He said unto them, why are you troubled? And why do thoughts [reasoning’s] arise in your hearts? Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself: handle Me, and see [to know thoroughly and accurately, recognize]; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as you see Me have”. Here we, those who become the body of Christ, will not just become spirits but, will become vessels who have a glorified body even as His glorious body. An immortal body of flesh and bones while abiding in the glory of God. Herein, overcoming all the limitations of the natural realm.
Even as God has said and purposed, He is releasing from Himself a manifestation of Himself that is purposed for those who make up the body of Christ. These shall know the resurrection as His many member Son to establish the kingdom of God upon the earth. When shall these things be? Matt. 24:30-31, “And then shall appear [shine forth, to be seen] the sign [presence]of the Son of man in heaven and then shall [because of His appearing] all the tribes of the earth morn, and they shall see [truly comprehend] the Son of man [remember the completed Son is a head, Jesus and His many member body] coming in the clouds [a specific group of people] of heaven [God’s spiritual perfected vessels] with power and great glory. And He shall send His messengers with a great sound of a trumpet and they shall gather His elect [those who have received His word] from the four winds, from one end of heaven [the elect, the perfected ones] to the other”.
When the word from God speaks of a people being changed to become his new manifestation, men must consider the everyday events that are taking place around them. The signs spoken of in God’s Word point to a manifestation beyond what God has released from Himself thus far. Events speak loudly as to the time of destruction that has now come. Destruction comes because God has purposed from the beginning to have a people for His name, His nature. Meaning that all else must dissolve or pass away. This points to and speaks of the fulfillment of His beginning purpose when God said, “let us make man in our likeness and image”. Therefore, through the ages of time, with each age bringing forth according to God’s progressive purpose, we have come to the time of man’s spiritual perfection. In this, time is coming to its end to be swallowed up into eternity, a manifestation of His stated purpose. In this regard, the first son came forth to be followed by the birthing and appearing of God’s birthed man-child, the ascending body of Christ. This is then to be followed by the perfecting of the bride of Christ in establishing God’s eternal house, His kingdom.
Therefore, according to His purpose, movements are taking place, a new expression and manifestation is come and God’s many sons are appearing. These are manifesting the Christ in His completion and His perfection. In this He is coming quickly. What do you see? Consider Jesus’ pattern prayer in Matt. 6:9-10, After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which are in heaven [heavens], hallowed [sanctified]be Thy Name [God is to be put first in all prayer]. Thy kingdom come, thy will [desire, purpose] be done [brought to pass, be accomplished] in earth; as it is in heaven [God’s spiritual dwelling place, includes the heavens within man, his spirit, His soul, and His body”. Thus the time for a new manifestation is upon us. The appearing of the end-time purpose of God.
