Things FROM God & Things OF God - Part 2

Dearly Beloved,

I was greatly encouraged when a colleague at work summarized part one of this series by saying “it sought to encourage believers to Seek Things That Are OF GOD and not just Seek Things That Are FROM GOD as preeminent in the church today! I trust the Lord to hereby build on this analysis and subsequently pay homage to why Words From God contained in the bible is different from the veiled meaning of the Word of God.

One of the greatest abuse among believers today is the use of the soul, i.e. the use of the mind and by extension, the heart. I see it daily and I personally trust the Lord to help me deal with every residual or unknown ways I fall short here because minds that would inherit the things OF GOD (inherit God) which are deep in nature (1Cor.2:10) cannot be used like the ‘average believer’ does today, see the early church! Many things despised by the-God-we-believe-in-but-do-not-know, have been highly esteemed by men (Lk. 16:15) and  hyped by the wisdom of fallen spirits and such legitimate things on the surface account for a large percentage of what we engage our minds in today. Selah 

The world has been feasted with ‘legitimate’ things that would perpetually keep our minds busy ‘beating the air’ (1Cor.9:26) and the question is ‘why are we preparing to learn of Things OF GOD when we get to heaven’? The epistles was written by resurrected minds so it hasn’t been reviewed or even easily understood till date, unlike books written by men! They used their minds in a very different way from you and I! I am trying to say that ‘It once took and still takes prisoners of Christ (Eph.3:1) to accurately understand Things That Are OF GOD and Only Such Souls Would Inherit God which takes place Before We Get To Heaven’! Many earthly advanced minds have invaded pulpits today and therefore can’t get the job of dealing with corruption in the souls of believers (2Pet.1:4).

Things OF GOD are not things present, so the destiny of believers are being shortchanged when ministrations they hear solely relate to their natural life! They are not things known to the intellectuals (the wise men) of this world (1Cor.20-21/27). They are things fabricated for the New Creation, not for the present Old Creation that is aging due to the effect of corruption on all created things, including man, and therefore everything that has interacted with corruption including the present heavens/earth would have to be rolled away (Heb.1:10-12). Eyes have neither seen them, nor ears heard them (1Cor 2:9)! Glorious angels that have been faithful to God for ages desire to see (i.e. understand) it, but it isn’t given to them (Heb.2:5/1Pet.1:12)! It was given to believers who unfortunately seek something else, low things like The American Dream, ephemeral things that can’t endure but pass away, things that lack the properties of Righteousness (1Pet.1:4)! Little wonder why another generation of believers are unconsciously despising The Revelations of Righteousness (Rom.1:16-17) that is primarily dispensed IN THE EPISTLES and not in THE INTRODUCTORY ASPECT of the Gospel i.e. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

2Cor5:17 ‘Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is A New Creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (i.e. our recreated human spirit is a citizen of a new world that is yet to manifest and is seated with Christ in heavenly places, but the Soul needs to be thoroughly feed with Things OF GOD to attain/inherit the new creation state)

Things OF God are of the class of the throne of God, routed through New Testament revelations. They are BORN OF GOD (1Cor.2:7&10/1Jn.5:4) i.e. processed through what can be described as the ‘womb of the Godhead’ (Isa.46:3), and therefore emanate with a superior fabric than the angelic world (fallen or not) can comprehend. They are ‘forever and ever’ compliant (Heb. 1:8). They are things that Satan is clueless of and partaking of them would cause a believer to humiliate Satan and his cohorts like the Apostles of the lamb did and thereafter check into heaven glorious, as An Overcomer not like the thief on the cross! They are the inexhaustible, undefiled, incorruptible inheritance that can only be housed by THE SOUL, which makes it the most mysterious aspect of man (1Pet.1:4/9)!

1Jn. 5:4 For whatsoever is born OF GOD overcometh (is superior than Satan’s main invention i.e. corruption) the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
(i.e. the Faith of The New Testament is Born OF God and therefore different from the Faith Towards God exploits of Mk. 11:23/Heb.6:1-2/11:1-39a and is therefore superior/precious2Pet.1:1)

May we be a part of the remnant that the Lord is raising, those who would understand the perimeters of the Things OF God like men know and can skillfully analyze football today. Amen

Bless You!

Things 'FROM' God & Things 'OF' God - Part 1

Dearly Beloved,

You may agree with me that ‘the true meaning of most biblical quotations is beyond the prevalent interpretation that believers/the multitude give to it’. The following article was born out of a conversation with a colleague at work on why ‘NOT ALL WORDS IN THE BIBLE IS THE WORD OF GOD i.e. the bible contains Words From God (which many believers have accessed) and also The Word of God (which few believers and even ministers have discerned, which I am yet to comprehend, as I ought to, because they are highly revelational)

I’ll start by making reference to an understanding that can be culled from the two prepositions ‘OF’ & ‘FROM’.

There is a Wisdom From God. The Cherubs of the angelic realm have access to the highest form of this wisdom and the inverted state of this wisdom is what has caused Satan to reign for centuries. Adam and his Sons, the patriarch’s and Solomon accessed this wisdom in respective depreciating degrees. Pls see

There is a Wisdom Of God. Such was the wisdom packaged in the tree of life that Adam failed to eat, meant to make him wiser than Satan, but just like most generations of believers still do till date, Adam despised it because the part/process places strange demands on its recipients, the mandate to despise what we call ‘life’.

There is a Wisdom Of God. Such was the wisdom repackaged and revealed through Christ unto the Apostles for the true church. Such is the only spiritual technology that can dismantle the wiles/wisdom of Satan which the corporate church isn’t matured enough to handle till date!

There is a Faith From God. A selfless edition of this faith was what gave birth to the good reports (breakthroughs) enumerated in Heb. 11:1-39a. A self-entangled edition of this faith was the sole limitation of the Corinthian, the Hebrew and today’s church from going unto maturity/perfection, i.e. accessing the meat/strong meat of the New Testament. Heb. 5:12-13

There is a Faith From God. Such is the faith that opens the low degrees of God’s carnal/earth powers to meet man’s outward life (earthly/physical needs). This faith was designed as a foundation for the aspect of faith that builds man’s inward life (the unknown being called The Soul). This faith is limited because it can neither accurately discern The World nor overcome it. This faith can be operated by believers/unbelievers and is called Faith Towards God!

There is a Faith That Is Of God. This Faith is that would open up Heb. 11:39b, which I attempted to give illustrations of in part 1-24 of The Authoring of An Unfinished Faith available on 2011 archive in my blog . This is the Faith Christ used to Inherit God (not things like the first faith is primarily being used for today). This faith is the machinery that the Godhead uses to unwind the life we married when we loved the world and observed lying vanities. This faith is operated by Christ through a believer-made disciple-being-transformed-into-a-son and is called The Faith of The Son! Gal. 2:20

There is a Faith that is Of God. This faith is the only victory that overcomes, i.e. that is superior to the arrangement called The World –1 Jn. 5:1-5. This faith was born when the father walked in the Son (‘not walked with’ like He did with Noah). This faith is alien to Satan’s comprehension. This faith carries the life-exchanging-intelligence that enables a believer/minister to trade his life (the fleshy/carnal life) with the life/fellowship that resides with the Godhead (the divine life inaccessible to glorious angels till date) – 1 Jn. 1:1-3

There is a Righteousness From God. Such righteousness was unveiled unto old faithful’s and declared via their walk like we saw in Noah, Moses, Elijah, Elisha, the patriarchs, etc. Such righteousness could only bring a degree of pleasing to God because of the level of light available in such generations. By it, saints like Joshua and Elijah disobeyed natural/earthly laws and manifested God in ways that those who haven’t discerned The Righteousness That Is of Faith later revealed in Christ still covet.

There is the Righteousness Of God. This righteousness was what made God declare unto His Son that He was well-pleased (i.e. He hadn’t been pleased like that prior to then). Such was what Christ loved like men in my day love iniquity. Such righteousness is what makes the throne (the kingdom of God) rule over the heavens, including its glorious creatures we hardly know about as we ought to. Christ only fully officiated the ministry of righteousness after wearing his new name (The Lord our Righteousness-Jer. 23:6.) in fulfillment of Jeremiah’s prophesy.

There are Separations/sanctifications that was From God. Such was what caused the priests to draw nigh unto God in the holy place and the high priest in the most holy place, once a year, while Moses could break this protocol in and out of season. Such was what limited the Sons of  Abiathar priesthood to only minister only unto the children of Israel (outer court) while the Sons of Zadok could minister to God in the (holy place) Eze. 40:46/44:15.

There is the sanctification/Separation Of the New Testament. This is what gave room for us to be called to partake of what Heb. 12:10 called “His Holiness” by which is far from what we know as holiness today and was designed to cause us to Draw Nigh Unto God – Heb. 7:19. This is the ministry where the Lord perfects the saints that they might inherit their new name/identity/authority, their New Testament inheritance in God - 2Pet.1:4/Eph.4:13/Rev. 2:17.
There Is A Power That Is From God. This power manifested through Genesis to Revelation and is carnal in nature (i.e. it can be sighted with the natural eyes & operates on this present earth). This is the power that reaches/heals the outward man on crusade grounds. This is the preeminent power in the church today. It rose Lazarus up from the dead but because it wasn’t God’s Eternal Power, Lazarus did not only die again but also didn’t attain the soul state/stature of the new creation! Such was the power used in creating the heaven/earth therefore they would pass away (Heb. 1:10-12) because they are The Products of His Hands (Isa. 66:1-2), not his face. Such powers are not glorious in the original definition of Glory!

There Is A Power That Is Of God. Such was the power that first found expression in hell where it came to raise the Son from the lowest pit to die no more (Ps. 88:4-10). This is the power that was described in the epistles with adjectives like Eternal, Glorious & Divine, because of the origin/design of this power – The Face of God. This is the power designed to raise the souls of believers (not unbelievers-Rom. 1:16) from earthly constitutions and prepare it to sit on the same throne the Son of God sat/sits. This power was housed in the Gospel (i.e. the aspect of the NT which Christ couldn’t declare on earth, but later declared through Holy Ghost/His Apostles.

In like manner, there are Words From God but There is The Word Of God! As the Spirit inspires, I hope to share the little I know on this subsequently, while the above treatise is only an introduction and not an exposition.

Bless You!
