Light and darkness

The light shines in the darkness,    and the darkness can never extinguish it.

The people who walk in darkness    will see a great light.For those who live in a land of deep darkness,    a light will shine.

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.

anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light

You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.

to open eyes that are blind,    to free captives from prison    and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.

the people living in darkness    have seen a great light;on those living in the land of the shadow of death    a light has dawned.”

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,

I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.

This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going.

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,    because the Lord has anointed me    to proclaim good news to the poor.He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,    to proclaim freedom for the captives    and release from darkness for the prisoners.

Darkness is the spiritual fruit of death, Just as light is the spiritual fruit of life.

The kingdom of darkness is ruled by the power of death.

The kingdom of light is ruled by the power of life.

Jesus said that light came into this world but men preferred to live in darkness.

Jesus said that in him was life and this life was the light of men.

The true condition of all things that makes up this world is darkness, it doesn’t matter who you are or what you know, darkness is the condition of it.

No matter how educated or intelligent humanity thinks its self to be, his master is death, and the outcome of death is deep darkness.

Darkness is a spiritual power as light is a spiritual power.

Darkness is a condition of being.

Light is a condition of being.

To live in real darkness is to live outside of God.

To live in light is to live inside of God.

There is no other place of being, either you live in light or you live in darkness, the two are incompatible.

Light is alien to this world, before Jesus came into this world, all men lived and walked in darkness.

Darkness was the common condition of all things of this world.

Humanity thinks itself to be very enlightened with all the great knowledge.

But in Gods eyes, all this great knowledge and wisdom that humanity thinks it has, all it is doing is furthering the depth of his darkness.

Outside of the life of God, all knowledge that humanity acquires just leads him into further and further darkness.

This present world today is a self revelation of the enlightened man.

Man in his great knowledge is only getting further and further away from the light.

Without the true light of God, mans only outcome is deeper and deeper darkness.

what will this final expression of present day humanity look like at the end of all its ways?

Mans great bid in the garden to be as God, without God? Today humanity is reaping the benefits of this great calamity.

Humanity today is getting further and further away from the true image of his creator.

Man is now becoming an altogether different kind of a creature.

What will this kind of a humanity really look like in the end. God only knows?

The universal power of death

O death, where is your victory?    O death, where is your sting?

And the last enemy to be destroyed is death.

Together as one body, Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of his death on the cross, and our hostility toward each other was put to death.

When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned.

But God released him from the horrors of death and raised him back to life, for death could not keep him in its grip.

and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—

For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.

but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

The bible says that the last enemy that will be destroyed is death.

Death is the state of all things that exists outside of the life of God.

Through the fall of Adam, death has invaded all things, which make up this creation.

Everything that now exists has death as its master, all roads lead to death in this world.

The things which are invisible, the things which are visible, all answer to their master who is death.

The whole cosmos, which makes up creation, also participate and are under the dominion of this power called death.

When God looks at this creation outside of himself, all he sees is separation and death.

The all things that make up this life are now servants to this power called death, in the end death is the dominion and the domain of all things.

When one truly comes into Christ, who is the life of God, then one truly sees how real this reality and truth is.

Its not until one comes into the true life of God, do we really see how dark and hostile this place we live in is.

Death is a spiritual state and condition of all things.

When one truly comes through the cross of Christ, into the life of the true God, then one really sees and experiences, how powerful of an enemy this thing called death is.

One sees the depth of the hostility of the power of death.

Death is very hostile to life.

Outside of the life of God, death is the environment that is for all who are born into this world.

When God looks at humanity all he sees is separation and death.

Death is an universal force that is relentless, is has no equals outside of God, the only thing that death answers to is the life of God, which is only found in Christ.

We all by nature, live in this existence that we think is life, but really is death.

With the power of death also comes spiritual blindness, which we all have also inherited.

The cross of the universal Christ was the only weapon in this universe that could break this hard task master, which separated humanity from the love of God.

Christ descended to the very depths of death to redeem not only mankind, but also the whole creation and cosmos.

I don’t think we are able to really grasp the depth of the universal crisis of the cross, which Christ who is the life of the eternal God, had to suffer..

The magnitude of this devastation and calamity, which had to be endured by the eternal God of creation, to defeat this universal hostile force called death, was such an cosmic event, that it will take the rest of eternity to fully understand and grasp the magnitude of the sacrifice, which was given for the redemption of creation.

Living by truth

Living by the truth, does not mean that you mentally believe something that is written down and observed?

To live by the truth, is to live by a life, which is altogether different and other than what we know by nature.

Jesus said you shall know the truth and the truth will make you free.

Truth is not a system of belief, like following a bunch of rules.

This world is built on a foundation of deception and lies.

Everything about this world is hostile in nature, in regards to the truth as God sees it.

The truth as the world lives in, and the truth as God lives in, are like two altogether different kinds of species of creatures.

Outside of who and what God is, there is nothing that is true.

This world, which we live in, might look to our natural condition, to be a very enriching and wonderful place.

Humanity thinks itself to be such a clever and enlightened species.

By the coming of Jesus into this world, this world was split in two.

Jesus never came into this world to start a new religion, which is called Christianity?

What Jesus brought into this world was a different kind of life, which is called the truth.

This life that Jesus lived out in this world, was another species altogether different and other, than what was in the world.

Jesus never ever came into this world to make man a better creature.

Jesus came into this world, to put this creature that lives in this world, on a cross.

This is what Gods answer was regarding the creature man, who lives in this world.

Adam or Christ

What did John really mean when he made the statement in 1 John; the whole world lies in the power of the evil one?

This statement is one of the most confounding statements in scripture.

Does this really mean what is says, does this world really lie in the wicked one.

To me this statement draws great attention due to the fact that it was written after the book of revelation.

John made this statement well after the book of revelation was written.

Scholars believe the revelation was written in the year of 96, the date of 1 John is around 100 to 105.

The scriptures only give us glimpses of these hidden realities, which are hidden to our natural faculties.

The problem is that we are a deceived race of people; we live in a world of deception, which is governed by the rulers of this age.

In Adam we all by nature are blinded by the god of this age, he is the hidden energizing reality behind the natural man.

Paul says that we by nature unknowingly do his will.

We are all representatives of the race of Adam; no matter who you are, you are under the racial head who is Adam.

This inheritance that Adam represents we inherit through natural birth.

Everything that is true of Adam is now true of us.

Adam is the source of all our life springs.

But Adam lives on the ground of deception.

He does not know this, but he is a servant to another, he is bound to do some one others will.

This is a very weird reality that we by nature stand on this ground, which is Adam,

The life of Adam energizes all of our movements in this life.

The problem is that Adam lives by a fallen deceived life.

This is all that we know, this is what we are born into, there is nothing else; we are stuck on this ground of such misery turmoil and confusion.

We have a hard time admitting to ourselves that we are really not free agents.

We are bound to a life of sin and death, which we freely inherited through the fall of Adam.

This is the main source of all religion, trying to make Adam a good moral person.

Adam cannot be good, Adam is a servant to sin and death.

This life of Adam is united with the reality of the evil one, this we don’t like to hear.

Yes we all by birth into this world do inherit this union, which is our inheritance through Adam.

This is our natural inheritance when we are born into this life, there is nothing else.

But the good news of the gospel is, now there is another place for us besides what we have come into through natural birth.

This other ground, who is Christ, is the place were we truly find what we long for, peace, truth, freedom, the great yoke that Adam carries is now lifted off.

This is the mystery of the faith that now we can live in a totally different kind of reality, which is completely other than the world knows.

It’s like living on a different planet than what we presently see and know.

This is the mystery of the gospel, that the world of Adam and the world of Christ do live side by side in this place called earth.

But we do know that the Adam race and his God were judged at the cross.

We do know that in the end there will only be one kind of a kingdom left.

These two kingdoms are growing together into maturity.

One is maturing into the full expression Adam, which is death.

The other is maturing into the full expression of Christ, which is life.

Thy mystery of iniquity

What is this mystery, if Paul calls it a mystery, then we should not believe the simple interpretations that we have been taught.

When Paul speaks the word mystery it’s not a statement he uses lightly.

There are two main interpretations of this in the church. The reformers believed that this was the Roman Catholic Church; and the man of sin was the pope.

This has shifted more recently with the establishment of the state of Israel.

Large parts of the church now believe that these events will take place once the temple is rebuilt, in which triggers the revealing of the man of sin.

Paul calls him the man of sin.

This word man that he uses, is the same word in the Greek as he used when he says.

The first man, Adam, became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 1 Corinthians 15-45

The first man is from the earth, earthy; the second man is from heaven.

As is the earthy, so also are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, so also are those who are heavenly.

And just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 1 Corinthians 15-47,48,49

Adam the man is a racial representation of a type of humanity.

Christ the man is also a representation of a kind of humanity.

When Paul is speaking of the man of sin, he is using the same kind of language as he uses in 1 Corinthians.

I believe Paul was not alluding to an individual character called the man of sin.

What I believe Paul was speaking of was a type of humanity.

The seeds of this humanity were already planted in the days of the Apostles.

John called it the Antichrist.

The leaven of this type of humanity was already in the early church well before the Roman Church came into being.

When the Lord was asked about the tares in with the wheat, Jesus didn’t say pull the tares out, he said let them grow together until the harvest, harvest time is when the difference will be known.

The Lord was asked were did these tares come from; the Lord said that the evil one planted them among the wheat.

So this leaven has been apart of the church since the time of the apostles.

What the end of the age does is, it matures the two kinds of humanities that are in the Christian church.

These two types of humanity are not localized in one expression, they are scattered throughout the whole body of Christendom.

They grow together as one family until harvest time.

Then comes the end when the Lord sends his angels to separate the two, notice its not until the end of the age until we truly know what is what.

So in the main stream of the true church family is this kind of humanity, it looks like the real thing, acts like the real thing, even has spiritual power to show great signs and wonders, but inwardly they are false.

The problem is they don’t know this, they think they are the true, they think that what is being manifested through them is truly the power of God.

The sad thing also is, the true sheep usually get fooled by them.

Not knowing that Satan can, and does transform himself into an angel of light.

John said believe not every spirit, you have an anointing from holy one that should alert you to the thing if it truly is of God, or the evil one.

The really sad part is that there are so few who really question these things.

We are in a state today that if we feel some kind of spiritual power in it then it must be of God.

This is the same condition that the Jews were in when Jesus was among then, always looking for signs and wonders, remember what the Lord said, a evil and adulterous generation seeks these things.

The word that the Lord gave them then, is the same word he is giving now, the only sign that will be given is the sign of Jonah, the word of the cross, this is the place that we truly find the power of God, this is the place of true reality.

Prophetic Warning Nov 21/19

This is a prophetic warning that came.

Get your house in order.

The hour is escalating rapidly .

The nations are about to be shaken.

Set your life in proper order.

Seek the Lord while he still may be found.

Be not foolish virgins, but be wise knowing the time is short.

The urgency that is coming from the spirit realm is startling.

The sense of dread is staggering.

Get in the safety of the life of the risen ascended Lord.

Repent! for the hour of the wrath of the Lamb is at hand.

The cup of iniquity is full.

Multitudes multitudes in the valley of decision.

Blow the trumpet in Zion, sound the alarm on my holy mountain.

The hour of shaking is at the door.

Blessed assurance

1After saying all these things, Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son so he can give glory back to you. For you have given him authority over everyone. He gives eternal life to each one you have given him. And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth. I brought glory to you here on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. Now, Father, bring me into the glory we shared before the world began.

“I have revealed you[a] to the ones you gave me from this world. They were always yours. You gave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now they know that everything I have is a gift from you, for I have passed on to them the message you gave me. They accepted it and know that I came from you, and they believe you sent me.

“My prayer is not for the world, but for those you have given me, because they belong to you. 10 All who are mine belong to you, and you have given them to me, so they bring me glory. 11 Now I am departing from the world; they are staying in this world, but I am coming to you. Holy Father, you have given me your name;[b] now protect them by the power of your name so that they will be united just as we are. 12 During my time here, I protected them by the power of the name you gave me.[c] I guarded them so that not one was lost, except the one headed for destruction, as the Scriptures foretold.

25 Jesus replied, “I have already told you, and you don’t believe me. The proof is the work I do in my Father’s name. 26 But you don’t believe me because you are not my sheep. 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, 29 for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else.[d] No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. 30 The Father and I are one.”

How can one read these statements by Jesus himself and not believe in the election of his people . These words that the Lord spoke in John are staggering.

What a foundation of faith we have under our feet.

Paul’s statements in Romans are also amazing.

31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? 33 Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. 34 Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.

35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”[o]37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[p] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

10 This son was our ancestor Isaac. When he married Rebekah, she gave birth to twins.[f] 11 But before they were born, before they had done anything good or bad, she received a message from God. (This message shows that God chooses people according to his own purposes; 12 he calls people, but not according to their good or bad works.) She was told, “Your older son will serve your younger son.”[g] 13 In the words of the Scriptures, “I loved Jacob, but I rejected Esau.”[h]

14 Are we saying, then, that God was unfair? Of course not! 15 For God said to Moses,

“I will show mercy to anyone I choose,
    and I will show compassion to anyone I choose.”[i]

16 So it is God who decides to show mercy. We can neither choose it nor work for it.

17 For the Scriptures say that God told Pharaoh, “I have appointed you for the very purpose of displaying my power in you and to spread my fame throughout the earth.”[j] 18 So you see, God chooses to show mercy to some, and he chooses to harden the hearts of others so they refuse to listen.

19 Well then, you might say, “Why does God blame people for not responding? Haven’t they simply done what he makes them do?”

20 No, don’t say that. Who are you, a mere human being, to argue with God? Should the thing that was created say to the one who created it, “Why have you made me like this?” 21 When a potter makes jars out of clay, doesn’t he have a right to use the same lump of clay to make one jar for decoration and another to throw garbage into? 22 In the same way, even though God has the right to show his anger and his power, he is very patient with those on whom his anger falls, who are destined for destruction. 23 He does this to make the riches of his glory shine even brighter on those to whom he shows mercy, who were prepared in advance for glory. 24 And we are among those whom he selected, both from the Jews and from the Gentiles.

25 Concerning the Gentiles, God says in the prophecy of Hosea,

“Those who were not my people,
    I will now call my people.
And I will love those
    whom I did not love before.”[k]

One could add many more amazing foundational scriptures regarding the guarantee of salvation from beginning to the ending.

Not one that he has chosen will perish? wow! who could make this kind of an statement but the universal God and King.

Why are the nations in an uproar

If we truly have eyes to see into the spirit realm, which governs this world, we would see a glorious eternal kingdom, which is right in the midst of the very presence that we dwell in.

Its kind of like three in one, the earthly realm were we inhabit, the lower heaven-lies were the principalities and powers inhabit, and the upper heaven-lies were the King and his Kingdom inhabit.

These three realms are here together at the same time, there is no distance that separates them, what separates them is depth?

We have been taught that the kingdom of heaven is some distant place far away.

This kingdom is here and now, right in the very midst of the air that we breathe.

The people who truly have seen and live in this reality called the kingdom of heaven, are the ones that are able to release this kingdom in power, into the realm of the visible.

We have come to mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem; we are not coming to it when we die.

The bible says that we have come to this eternal city yet while we are still living in this earthly realm.

At the Cross the Lord ascended the holy hill of Zion and established this city.

Through his death and resurrection, the Lord laid the foundation of this eternal city.

The bible makes it clear, this city grows out from the earth.

The clouds of witnesses that surround us are the residents of the city, but we that have been born from above, are residents also.

These witnesses were just like us when they died, they just left this physical fleshly realm.

Near the end of his physical life, Samuel Rutherford an old Reformer said, I see Emanuel’s land, and it is full of glory.

What the second coming means to me, is the physical visible revelation of this city.

The bible says every eye will see this appearing?

That to me says that this city covers all the realms of earth now.

When it is revealed every eye will be witness to its physical display.

The age we live in now is not the blessed Age of peace, that will come at the time of its revealing.

This age is the age of battle.

David was a man of battle.

The Lord is building this city in the midst of his enemies.

The Lord is using all the evil work of his enemies to prepare this eternal city.

To live in this city now is to be in a place of warfare.

The world rulers of this present darkness are very agitated at its presence; they want this city and its people who dwell in this place to disappear.

To live in this city is to come under extreme spiritual conflict.

Once we take our stand with the Lord on the holy hill of Zion, we become marked men and women.

Special attention is given us from the world rulers when we make this kind of a stand.

The Lord says fear not I have overcome all your enemies, they are already defeated by him, all we have to do is stand in his complete victory.

To truly come into the revelation of this city, is to truly see the eternal church of the living God.

Ruler of the kings of the earth

On the isle Patmos, the Apostle John was given special unfolding revelation of this universal heavenly man, which who he knew was the Christ of God

John saw that this Jesus who he walked and lived with on the earth, was now again what he always had been.

king of kings, lord of lords.

The eternal God.

The mighty one of Israel.

Ruler of all ages, not only of the present age, but all the ages that have been, and all the ages that will be.

He is the one that regulates the affairs of all his creatures.

All things are held together by his direct power.

He is before all things, he is the power that holds all things together.

What he chooses to do, no one can stop.

What he stops no one can start.

He is the one that sets up Kingdoms and empires, but he is also the one who removes them when the purpose of their use is over.

He is not waiting to rule the earth some day, he is ruling the earth now.

Just because the world is unable see this, doesn’t mean that its not true.

His great appearing in the clouds of glory, will be his self revelation of this historic truth.

This is what John saw, he saw the messiah Jesus who was supposed to set up a earthly kingdom on earth in the land of Israel, now universal lord and king of all things.

His universal rule someday will be a visible present rule, but that day waits until he has first put all his enemies under his feet.

This world is not spinning out of control; the man of the glory is controlling all the affairs of this world.

He is not waiting to be judge he is the judge of the world now.

Yes there is a future judgment to come, but there is also a present judgment now.

He disciplines the nations of the earth, he also disciplines the sins and rebellions of his people.

It might be hidden to the natural eyes, but behind the rod of his hidden wrath, is the hand of this man of glory.

He is the beginning of all things, but he is also the end of all things.

The things that are coming at the close of this age will stagger us unless we see that he is Lord of all events.

His judgments are his self-revelation to us, he reveals himself in his judgments.

The revelation of his mercy is hidden in his judgments.

We cannot see his mercy unless we see his judgments.

The cross was the greatest revelation of the mercy of God, but it was only revealed through the greatest revelation of the judgment of God?

God does not just wink at our rebellions and sins, his righteousness requires his judgment.

But when his judgment has been satisfied then his mercy is revealed.

Mercy is always revealed in his judgments.

If we cower from his judgments in our lives, we will not see his mercy in our lives.

Grace is free but its not cheap, it cost the Son of God everything.

If we refuse his discipline in our lives, we also refuse his Grace and mercy in our lives.

The cross is a revelation of both.

His judgment in our lives should not frighten us.

They are one of the great attributes of God, its what makes him God, its what he is, he is a judge over all his creatures.

Looking back at my life I thank God for his judgments, were would I be without them?

Prophetic communication

When we hear a new prophetic word from God, we hear the same word that others have heard throughout the ages.

The spoken prophetic word is always new to us, but it has always been spoken.

When we come into the heavenly Christ, who is the word, we come into the full spoken thought of God, for now and for all the ages that will follow.

Everything God has to say to humanity now, has already been spoken in the eternal Christ, who is the eternal word of God.

To come into the Christ who is the word, is to come into the full revelation of Gods spoken word.

When we come into Christ, we come into the Prophetic communication of Gods word.

When we hear the word, we become Prophetic communicators of the word.

When we speak the word, if it truly is the word, it triggers present time historic event, for those who hear the word.

God has always spoken his eternal word, but not all hear this word.

Every time we hear Gods spoken prophetic word, it is always new to us, but it has always been spoken.

Prophetic events in historic present time, wait for the prophetic eternal speaking of Gods word.

When God brings into being historic present time events, God sends forth his spoken eternal word.

The communicators of this word are the hearers of the word.

The communicators of the eternal word, are the ones who live in the eternal word.

The hearers of the word are brought into the reproach of the word, which always comes with the hearing of the word.

The communicators of the prophetic word are given access to see the prophetic events of the word, before the word becomes the historical present time event.

God allows the prophetic communicators of the word to see the glory of the word, but he does not allow them to share in the glory of the word.

Gods jealousy for the glory of his word always requires this.

Sovereign Election

I think this truth is one of the most contested truths in the faith, God is an electing God; he chooses whom he will, as he will, when he will, when rightly apprehended, this truth is a devastation to the arrogant heart of man, man thinks he can, but doesn’t understand, he is a fool, blinded by his pride.

The election of God is the beginning of the utter devastation of the Adamic life, election undercuts all our natural human ability to give to God something good in ourselves, election says no to what we are, but yes to what he is.

Election leads us into a self-revelation of the total depravity of our human nature.

Election closes the door to one humanity, but opens the door to another.

This new humanity is no longer what we are, but what he is, this foundational truth when rightly apprehended is the place of rest and peace, it takes us into the total satisfaction of Gods son, no longer what I am, but what he is.

Election opens the door to the controversy of Zion, God has a people in this world that are not welcome, the principalities and powers of the air know this.

These people are a direct cause of agitation to their rule over fallen mankind.

These powers know that on the great day when he appears with his elect, their long rein of evil will come to and end, their place of power will be given to the church which has suffered from their assaults throughout the ages of time.

In this present age there is no release from these assaults, the elect have to bear under the stress of these constant antagonisms that are directed at them from the evil one, knowing that many that have gone on have born these sufferings also.

As Saul assaulted David, so the elect will suffer from the assaults of the evil one.

This conflict will continue until the appearing of Christ’s theocratic kingdom.

Every elect member of his mystical body that now dwells on the earth is brought into this conflict.

As soon as we enter into the elect heavenly man, the atmosphere changes, we are brought into a realm of intense spiritual antagonism.

We feel that we have come into a world of intense evil, and this evil is now directed at us.

This evil comes in many forms, people begin to look at you different.

People that once were common to life now look at you with suspicion, your very presence seems to agitate them.

In the early stages of this life you wonder what in the world is going on, but over time and experience you realize these assaults are directed at the heavenly man, whom now has become your life.

The purpose of these assaults are aimed at getting us back into the old Adamic life, which is the sphere and ground of the evil one’s authority.

Over time and much failure, we begin to understand our enemies, our faith is enlarged, we begin to learn how to hold this heavenly ground, the new man is enlarged, we bend but not break.

I believe the root of anti Semitism is the direct cause of the election of the nation of Israel.

The world does not understand this reality, but the powers of the air do, if people would stand back and ask themselves, why don’t we like these people, they couldn’t give a reasonable answer, the reality is they are chosen which makes them marked for antagonism.

The intensity of this conflict will continue to escalate more and more as we approach the birthing of the theocratic kingdom, hitting the high water mark on the day that is called, the day of Jacobs’s trouble.

This conflict has no ending in this present life; the day we leave this world is the day it ends, but we do know, by Gods promise to his elect, not one shall be lost.

The revelation of Jesus Christ

I believe we are again living in a time in which the Christian church has once again lost the great truths of the apostolic faith.

Like the time of Luther, the church once again needs another reformation of the apostolic faith.

The Christian faith has once again become in most parts just another religion in the earth; it has lost the apostolic presence that separates the Christian faith from all other faiths.

We again in this day, need the Lord to send forth his great truths into the body of believers, which makes up the present church.

We have all the teachings, we have all the history, we have all the books, but we are missing what the early church had, we are missing what was restored in the time of the reformation.

I believe we at this present moment of history, as the church, are again living in the time of great need.

To finish this present dispensation the church needs to once again come into, not something new, but something that has always been, but now lost.

We need to once again ask the Lord to bring us back to where it all began, to what was completed at the cross.

We need the Lord to once again reveal to us what really is available for us in Christ.

We need to come into the reality of the finished perfected work of Christ.

We need to have our inner eyes opened to see the great work of the Christ, which he secured for us on his cross.

We all seem to have the proper doctrines and teachings.

Our theology is very sound, but we have missed the main ingredient, which is the very apostolic presence, of the living God dwelling in the midst of his people.

Yes we need power and his presence once again to fill our meetings.

We need what others in the history of the church came into.

But these things are only entered into through an inner revelation of the finished work of Christ.

Pentecost was the result of the Lord ascending to the throne, this was the result, power to perform great works in the earth.

The early church came into this truth, they saw the ascended glorified Lord of heaven, sitting at the right hand of power, having all authority in heaven and on earth.

This is what the early church came into, this was what the reformation was, it was the great truths once again being restored to the church.

To see these great truths by spiritual revelation, is to come into the throne room of power and authority.

This is were the holy spirit camps out at.

This is the place where the defeat of the principalities and powers is a living reality.

The holy spirit always bears witness to the finished work of Christ.

If we want his power and presence, then we have to ask the Lord to show us who he is in Gods universe.

When one sees the lord high and lifted up, ruling his creation with great power and authority, siting on the right hand of power, exercising his will over the nations, this brings great comfort and assurance to our faith.

To see the lordship of Jesus Christ over all things, is to come into the throne room of universal power and influence.

On this ground, which is Christ crucified, ascended ruler over all, there we truly find our release and freedom.

I believe the church is once again ripe, for a new unveiling of the universal lordship of the Christ of God.

I believe unless we see these great once and for all time delivered truths, we will continue to live under the glory, which is available for us.

Jesus said, you shall know the truth and the truth will make you free.
