Things 'FROM' God & Divine Things 'OF' God - Part 4

Dearly Beloved, 

The Lord is calling for an unknown order of fellowship from sincere believers. Apostle Paul called it The Fellowship of His Son, which is deeper than was an average believer knows and calls ‘Fellowship’ because it has to do with a life that resides amidst the Godhead, which is rooted in A BEGINNING that was (i.e. Jn. 1:1) before THE BEGINNING mentioned in Gen. 1:1. Few over the generations who found abundance grace and the gift of righteousness have pressed into this fellowship, after positioning their souls to become an abode for God. This is the fellowship I trust the Lord to come into, in the years/decades ahead. Like we have fellows in different earthly professions, so also there are fellows in the Spirit – Rom. 1:20

Jn. 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall (i.e. a promise) be loved of my Father, and I will love him (i.e. a different love from the love we know today, which began the new birth and brought us healing, prosperity e.t.c), and will MANIFEST MYSELF TO HIM (we can’t go into this for now).

i.e. The Son came into the father’s Love after Cumulative Qualitative Obedient Walk, but we are yet to come into such because we haven’t even discerned such an exalted walk! The Spirit has manifested himself in various carnal ways that carnal/young believers can relate with, but we are yet to receive his primary ministry of REVEALING THE GLORIOUS BEING CALLED CHRIST - Jn. 14:26/16:14! WE ARE YET TO RECEIVE THE MANIFESTATION OF THE HOLY GHOST AS THE SEVEN SPIRITS OF THE LORD (Isa.11:2/Rev. 1:4/4:5), NOT TO TALK OF RECEIVING THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SON AND THE FATHER (Jn. 14:21) IN FULFILLMENT OF Isa. 66:2

1Jn. 1:1 That which was from the beginning (i.e. originality/truth), which we have heard (with circumcised/pierced ears – Ps. 40:6), which we have seen with our eyes (the eyes of the heart – Eph. 1:18), which we have looked upon (i.e. the priestly art of waiting - 2Cor.3:18), and our hands have handled (i.e. conversation of the soul – Ps.24:4), of the Word of life…

i.e. The likes of Apostle John reached The End of Faith, The Salvation Of The Soul -1Pet.1:9- by relating with Divine Things Of The World To Come in this present weak world

1Tim. 3:9 Holding The Mystery of The Faith in a pure conscience.

i.e. Faith here is not Faith Towards God but THE FAITH OF THE SON which is mysterious and designed to enable the saints acquire divine materials for living in God’s sight and for pleasing him so we can fulfill the unfulfilled prophesy of Hosea 2:4 … For the Just shall LIVE (spiritually appreciate before God) by his Faith, not primarily use faith to ACQUIRE material things like we see and define faith as today

You may therefore see why:

Unbelievers and carnal believers have access to the Things FROM God but not one unbeliever or carnal believer has ever and can ever access the Things OF God! To comprehend such elevated things, the sight of a believer-made-disciple, being-conformed-to-truth (Jn. 8:31-32), has to be gradually raised to comprehend the Kingdom and the Righteousness of the Kingdom and value/seek it above anything that can be seen with the natural eyes!

Matt.5:45 That ye may be the Children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and Sendeth Rain On The Just And On The Unjust.

Gen. 13:14 And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was Separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward

i.e. This was a type of the New Testament experience of having our sight elevated into the spiritual wherein we can sight truth, the perimeter of our spiritual inheritance, which takes place after Increasing Separations From The World which was typified here by Lot

·     Any wisdom that can’t beat Satan hands down is not a Spiritual Wisdom! Any wisdom that can’t sight the Glory of the New Testament, which is the glory of Christ, isn’t Spiritual! Solomon’s wisdom lacked spiritual substances when compared with the Wisdom revealed in Christ (1Cor. 2:6-7). The wisdom of the fallen cherubim troubling the world (i.e. Satan) is an angelic wisdom turned upside down and still has a height/edge over many kinds of wisdom available today! Solomon’s wisdom, though outwardly result-oriented, was subject to corruption and time. It was FROM God but because it lacked the divine substance needed to change or divinely upgrade the state of fallen man and therefore it was not OF God! To show us how low Solomon’s wisdom was in relation to the wisdom of the epistles and in God’s sight, The Lord Jesus had to compare it with the lilies of the field - Matt. 6:29. Pls see on why the wisdom we seek today encourages the reign of our collective arch enemy.

·       The greatest fear of the rebel holders detailed in Eph. 6:12 is the raising of a generation of saints that would engage revelational meals and download The Divine Things of God! We would continue our ignorant activities of binding fallen Spirits that can’t be bound or cast out like demons could be, rather than Disobeying Their Wisdom resident in us via the laws of Sin & Death, which remains the only legal ground for their an air-advantage (Eph. 2:2) like NATO’s air-advantage over Libya limited Gadhafi unto the end!

You may therefore agree with me that:

·      When a believer has succeeded in believing in Christ only for ephemeral things which can be seen with the natural eyes (i.e. the believing of Matt. 11:23), such has not yet started the actual believing of the New Testament (i.e. the believing of 1Jn.5:1).

·       The believing in the Epistles has to do with spiritual promises and is the secret to escaping the corruption/intelligence of this world – Eph. 1:3/2Pet. 1:4. It has to do with an exercise of our spiritual senses - Heb. 5:14, while the believing demanded for in Matthew, Mark, Luke & John had carnal men (believers/unbelievers) as its audience because they were still earthly! Selah 

·      The operation or promise of the faith that began Christianity (i.e. Faith Towards God) can be discerned by angels (fallen or not), but the faith designed to end Christianity (i.e. The Faith of The Son) would always remain a mystery to angels (fallen or not), because It Has To Do With The Path To Inheriting The Divine Life Resident amidst the Godhead, GLORY!


Jn. 13:3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God

(i.e. The Lord’s goal was unlike that of many Christians which is to ‘at least make it to heaven’, in whatsoever soul-state, but rather, to inherit the father’s divine life/nature before meeting the father, so he lived in a different way from you and I)

Bless You!

Things FROM God & Divine Things OF God - Part 3

Dearly Beloved, 

As glorious as angels are, it is not given to them to inherit the image/likeness of God, THE DIVINE THINGS OF GOD, so when Lucifer lusted after it, he fell, sold his vision to angels of the first and second heaven and corrupted some thereby!

Isa. 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds (i.e. above where other cherubs like him dwelleth); I will be LIKE  the most High
(i.e. Satan once lusted for the Wisdom/Authority/Thronic Meek Life that resides within God, The Kingdom Life which only believers are called to seek by understanding Matt. 11:29/2 Cor. 4:6).

Ps. 17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness
The first man, Adam, despite the outwardly glorious estate in which he was made also fell short of the calling to the weighty fellowship and knowledge of eternal life which was the secrets of the likes of Apostle John (1Jn.1:1-3). It therefore took the second and last Adam, Christ Jesus, who thoroughly fellowshipped with Eternal Life, to please God fully and thereby inherit Eternal Life, The Divine Life resident in God. 

Jn. 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.(i.e. All that Jesus used the first 30 years of his earthly ministry to acquire was the Knowledge of The Father & thereby, he possessed the life resident in the Father - Eternal Life. You and I can only possess eternal life if we graduate from BELIEVING IN ETERNAL LIFE to KNOWING ETERNAL LIFE!

Christ later began downloading measures of eternal life to Paul from the experience of Acts 9 to the encounter documented in Acts. 26:16. The apostles of the lamb who gave Apostle Paul a right hand of fellowship (Gal. 2:9), likewise received access to Knowledge of that Eternal life, which is the knowledge of Truth.  

Prior to then,  the disciples of Christ remained APOSTLES OF THE MILK OF THE WORD as seen through the exploits of Acts chapters 2 to 17 but after tarrying with the teachings of Apostle Paul, they became APOSTLES OF THE MEAT OF THE WORD as seen in their epistles, which remain the gateway to understanding the synoptic gospels (the books of Matthew to John), the law and the prophets. 

We all have control and are responsible for our actions, but we have no control over the consequences of our actions or inaction and one area where believers grieve the Lord for decades is by their response to the issue of seeking and understanding eternal life. A little understanding of Rev. 7/17 & 21:4  should provoke us to live contrary to how we do today and the following is an attempt to shed light on how grave this issue is

Rev. 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes….. (question: ‘would overcomers like the Apostles have tears that would need to be wiped away’) 

I perceive that one of the reasons why God would have to wipe the tears of many believers who make heaven in the day which Paul made reference of in 2Tim.4:8, which would take place before the unveiling of the new heaven and earth is because of the shocking realization and grief of a Belated Knowledge That They Didn’t Fellowship With The Divine Things Of God In The Days Of Their Flesh. The pain of such people would be that they didn’t embrace the tough carnal life shedding ministry of The Tree of Life like Adam didn’t. They didn’t nurse a hunger/thirst for righteousness and therefore weren’t filled while on earth (Jn.7:37) with God’s Divine Things/Blessings. They would have to wait for the world to come to begin the syllabus of Drinking of the fountain of the water of life and EATING of the tree of life (Rev. 21:6) while this very provision, the epistle meals, was available for them on earth (Jn.4:14) but was despised. 

When we can’t disown the carnal life (self) like we are called to, we would ultimately treat the issue of their birthright in God, spiritual inheritance like Esau! Such believers  won’t be worthy of the Lord because he won’t be able to intimately unveil himself to such (Matt. 7:21-23)! Believers who lived with the goal of ‘MAKING IT TO HEAVEN’ and not ‘ENTERING INTO THE KINGDOM’, cant obey the commandment of Rev. 12:11, would preserve their carnal lives and become strangers to the throne, though in heaven! They therefore can’t be a part of the bride of Christ, the company called the Heavenly Jerusalem/City of God - Rev. 21:2/10. They won’t be qualified to be a part of the overcomers rewarded with glory mentioned in Rev. 21:7…….THEY ONLY UNDERSTOOD THE DICTIONARY DEFINITION OF REWARD BUT NOT THE BIBLICAL ONE WHICH IS EXTREMELY UNFATHOMABLE TO MANY, INCLUDING MYSELF!
2 Tim. 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing (an appearance that would save our souls– Titus 2:13/Heb. 9:28) .i.e. Paul completed the syllabus of understanding eternal life. He fought daily to overcome the world’s resolve to fill the soul with a pseudo-fulfillment that’s contrary to the infilling via eating and drinking of revealed kingdom truths

Rev. 21:7 He that overcometh (BY HIS SPIRITUAL WALK ON EARTH) shall inherit All Things (of God); and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Beloved, if after 5 years of beginning the faith, the messages you hear year-in-year-out is not confronting what men call ‘My Life’ and is not gradually shedding light on the subject of Eternal Life (which is the divine life we received in our Human Spirit at new birth but are clueless about), you are being unknowingly cheated! Please prayerfully consider the fountain you drink from.

Though Satan is the prince/ruler of this world, he doesn’t understand eternal life. When Apostle John saw in the Spirit, his amazing exploits in Babylon over kingdoms and souls (Rev. 17), he wondered with great admiration, yet this same fallen cherub, Satan, who fabricated the software driving this world is the terrible being God has called us to overcome so we can Inherit Eternal Life! The question now is ‘WHEN WOULD WE BEGIN THE NEEDED CARNAL LIFE SHREDDING JOURNEY?

We must not be deceived, for God is not mocked by the attitude of believers and ministers to the true Christian faith! We can only reap eternal life by sowing to the Spirit (Gal.6:7).  God already has a company of few witnesses who disobeyed Satan by completing their course of salvation and we are already without excuse. God remains The Wisest Investor of all generations and he awaits excellent, much and precious Fruits of Eternal Life! Isa.4:2/Jn. 15:5/James 5:7
May we all find grace to understand our enemies (Eph. 6:12) like the Lord and his apostles did, for only then would we understand how to overcome the obstacles to accessing THE DIVINE THINGS OF GOD and ultimately LAY HOLD ETERNAL LIFE WITH OUR SOUL, not our human spirit like we did at new birth.

 Bless You!
