The Emerging World

Dearly Beloved,

Isa. 51:6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the (present) heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the (present) earth shall wax old like a garment…
2Pet. 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for New Heavens and A New Earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

1. There is a decree from the Spirit for an exodus from the corruption governing this Weak World to a Divine World that would comprise of True Worshippers and Victorious Christians who fellowship with Better Substances of a Better Covenant. The limitations of ‘The Natural/Carnal Blessings of Goshen’ has so far beaten the souls of many to a state where unlike Moses, they can’t See The Invincible and can only relate with Earth-Bound Blessings, thus despising The Place of Preparation meant to make them Partakers thereof! 2 Pet. 1:4/Heb. 6:5/Heb. 11:40/Rev. 21:1

2.  God was once delighted to see the Fathers of Faith, the Prophets of old and the early church who set their affections on things above and had a foretaste of This New World via their Walk, and He is now placing a demand for a company of saints who would journey beyond every type of veil placed by The Glories of This Present Passing World, so that they would experience The Glorious Soul State of The New Creation Man while on earth LIKE THE LORD JESUS & HIS DISCIPLES DID! Heb. 11:10

3. God has therefore been weaning His Children from earthly meals that gratify unenlightened souls unto spiritual meals that would Mature Us Unto Sonship, for only then would the Blessed Church of Christ esteem her Spiritual Inheritance like Jacob did and traded their earthly thrones for a heavenly one like David did! Isa. 28:9/Phil. 3:15/Heb. 5:9&6:1

4. With this understanding, Father Abraham sought AN ENDURING-CITY WHOSE FOUNDATION AND ARCHITECT WAS GOD, while Peter saw this city as an expression that would fully illustrate God’s Righteousness. But The Church on the average today is yet to celebrate such insights that would equip us with THE SOUL STATE OF THIS EMERGING WORLD. The Lord is therefore using every avenue where His Son is being unveiled to engraft in us, ‘Better Things To Come’, divine things that have lingered due to the activities of seducing spirits that once fought the early church and still fights the promotion of such Vital Truths Meant To Mature and Perfect The Saints. Heb. 11:10/Jn. 16:13

5.      We therefore trust The Lord to submit to the purpose of spiritual teaching meetings which is to enlighten the saints on ‘Good Things To Come’ so we can be separated from Earthly Races For Corruptible Things unto the Patient Race of The Kingdom. We must also trust Him to visit other Souls and Pulpits that have fallen prey to the influence of worldly lusts that promote the hope of This Present Passing World. Rom. 9:28/Jn. 6:27/Heb. 12:1/Heb. 9:11/10:1

6. The cloud of witnesses in heaven has always been amazed that ‘WHAT WE HAVE BELIEVED GOD FOR SO FAR IS FAR LESS THAN WHAT HE HAS PLANNED FOR US! So it has pleased The Father to bless the eyes of those that would ‘Come & See’ and the ears of them that would ‘Come & Hear’ of the Good Tidings of The Gospel of Peace and Power!

7.  We must desire to be gradually quickened to live from above, so we can prepare to manifest our true citizenship which is actually of the order of the world to come wherein dwelleth righteousness! 2 Pet. 3:13

8.  We owe humanity and posterity a conversation that would show forth fruits of The True Prosperity of The Soul/True Riches. The Church (You/I) has previously engaged various milky aspect of The God’s Word but must also open up and skillfully relate with THE WORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS3Jn. 1:3/Luke 16:11/Heb. 5:13

 Bless You!

Another Look @ John Chapter 3 - Part 11

Beloved of God,

In one of Rev. Kenneth Hagin’s personal encounter with the PERSON OF THE LORD, he found himself confessing to the Lord that “you are quite different from what we think you are” and the Lord said to him “that is true”.

We (including myself), know more of his Acts or Needs Meeting Ministry BUT WE DON’T KNOW OF HIS PERSON. We know not What Manner of Love hath been bestowed on us (1 Jn. 3:1), we know not WHAT MANNER OF PERSONS WE OUGHT TO BE (2Pet. 3:11/1Thes. 1:5), we know not What MANNER OF MAN HE WAS (Matt. 8:27), NEITHER DO WE KNOW WHAT MANNER OF MAN HE IS NOR IS TO COME (Rev. 1:8)

But in the days of his power, which is the day of his unveiling, His People Would Be Empowered To Willingly Respond To Him like generations of believers have never done! Ps. 110:3

Rev. 1:14 His Head And His Hairs Were White Like Wool, As White As Snow; and His Eyes Were As A Flame Of Fire; And His Feet Like Unto Fine Brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His Voice As The Sound Of Many Waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword: and His Countenance Was As The Sun Shineth In His StrengthAND WHEN I (i.e. John) SAW HIM, I FELL AT HIS FEET AS DEAD.

This same Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36), who has been ignorantly used and reduced to all sorts today, is he whom a whole Apostle John fell before as dead when he encountered him!

The following transcribed message is a continuation of John chapter 3 (being Born of Water & Spirit/Entering The Kingdom) attempts to further prepare believers who want to move from RECEIVING THE HOLY GHOST (which took place at new birth) to RECEIVING THE SON and then THE FATHER, which has hardly taken place right now in the Church as it has to do with the END OF FAITH. Jn. 14:20-23/1 Pet. 1:9
Graceful reading!

Another Look @ John Chapter 3 - Part 11

Jn. 14:10-14 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? THE WORDS that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth THE WORKS. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very WORKS’ sake.

Jn. 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the Works that I do shall he do also; and Greater Works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
Greater work is that which would be orchestrated via SPOKEN WORDS, not by WORKS which He DID (i.e. miracles). It has to do with a So Great Salvation which the Lord/His Apostles spoke of – Heb. 2:3
 Heb. 2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
  • The Lord could express what was in a man’s heart through his words and that was a spiritual technology
  • You can know the level of fellowship of a man by the conversation he engages, by his application of the word of righteousness in appraising natural things/issues.
  • You can only accurately interpret natural or spiritual things by the level of fellowship you have engaged in the Spirit.
  • The father, Son and Holy Ghost are the ones that have a WALK in themselves which they are trying to introduce us to. It’s a very HIGH WALK and that’s why the WORDS that come from this dimension is a very high one.
  • So in Jn. 14:12, Jesus was saying, if you can’t believe my words, then believe my works
  •  The WORK that gives birth to miracles is low, because it is not a product of their God’s Eternal Walk. Anything that proceeds from their WALK would have eternal value. The works/exploits the father doeth is that of Eternal Life
  • The works of eternal life demands that the three of them (i.e. the godhead) would have to come together and agree about before it can be commissioned. Such are the exploits that command the capacity of eternal life.
  • In the Old Testament, God did works/exploits, but not in the capacity of The Father. He did so in the capacity of Jehovah etc.
  • It is easier to believe the lesser work (i.e. miracles) because it’s not carried out in the secret, its carnal (i.e. can be physically seen) so natural men can relate with it
  • The world is not permitted to see that work which the godhead engages in
  • Lesser works can be seen by The Natural Eyes, but for greater works, The Eyes Of Your Heart has to be zoomed into the realm of the spirit for a higher sighting
  • The gentiles (i.e. unbelievers) can see WORKS (i.e. miracles) but they can’t see the WALK which the father doeth which is after eternal life, so one of our prayers should be “Lord help me to see what you do”, for such was the Lord’s prayer - Jn. 8:28. 
  • You must see the work being carried out by God and then you would be permitted to partner with him in higher things
  •  One of the contentions of the Jews was that he did a work on Sabbath, but that is the day the father works, the day that priests carry out a work which is not servile, a work done in the inn, in a state of rest. Such Sabbath day work is what brings redemption to the people, a work that is churned from the inside
  •  To despise any personality of the godhead is to hate the gospel
  • When you don’t believe the trinity, the gospel is closed to you! The gospel is both our salvation and our inheritance which we were quickened to receive.
  •  There is something about the Holy Ghost, you can’t blaspheme against him and be forgiven.
  • Matt. 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 
  • He isn’t interested in taking Glory. He is another being in the Spirit which we need to know. He is so meek that he puts the rest of the two (the father and the son) above and decided to stay under and work in us. He is the worker of all we are saying and it’s a privilege that he is in the world. 
  •  He gave birth to all believers. The father told him to birth you (i.e. your spirit) into the Godhead. It is his womb that brought us into godhead and eternal life can’t be received by us except through him.
  •  Anytime the Holy Spirit rises, the fulfilling of the word commences. He brooded upon the water so the earth can be discovered so also he hibernated in the heavens to create the heavens. That’s the same way they finished heaven.
  •  He never created until there was a command. That is his nature. He has always been doing nothing of himself.
  •  He has the power to turn you into immortality, but would only do so when he receives the command to do so.
  •  He that raised Jesus from the dead will also quicken your mortal body by the spirit i.e. this would take place at the Spirit’s bidding. He only receives commandment from the father and the son and he won’t do anything except he has pleased them.
  •  You partook of Christ in a measure, when you got born again, through your quickened Spirit. The nature of your spiritman became that of Christ.
  •  Judas (not Iscariot) question led to how the Holy Ghost would be given (Jn. 14:22-26), while Judas question lead to how the father & Son would be given (Jn. 14:8-12). The first while he was present and the manifestation of the Son & Father while he would be away
  •  It’s the summary of the transaction involving the giving of the 3rd person of the trinity and the receiving of the 1st and 2nd personTHE GIVING OF THE HOLY GHOST IS SO THAT WE CAN RECEIVE THE FATHER AND THE SON.
  •  You can’t break Holy Ghost down like you would do to the father and son. They have their nature/identity
  •  The Holy Ghost is their Spirit, that’s why he is called ‘THE SPIRIT OF GOD’, but the father and the son come almost the same way, i.e. as revelation increases.
  •  You begin to receive the father and son as one program that is split into two.
  •  In Ephesian Chapter 1, you Believe the son, in Ephesian chapter 2, you begin journeying into Knowledge of the son, at the tail end of chapter 3, the receiving of the father commences! In the revealed knowledge of Christ (Eph. 1:17) is the storage of the knowledge of the father.
  •  It’s possible to be a child of God and not receive all that belongs to you, i.e. the Spiritual Blessings Kept For You In Heavenly Places. Eph. 1:3
  •  When we arrive in such a day, we would know that The Son Is In The Father and The Father Is In The Sonand Him In You and You In Him.
  •  Jn. 14:20-21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I WILL LOVE HIM, AND WILL MANIFEST MYSELF TO HIM14:23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and MY FATHER WILL LOVE HIM, AND WE WILL COME UNTO HIM, and make our abode with him. (These two experiences is what most believers/ministers are yet to even understand/seek after)
  • The only way to finish your course (Acts 20:24/2Tim. 4:7) is for you not to fall short of Receiving The FATHER and The SON like you received the HOLY GHOST when you got born again!

Would God Rest? - Part 5

Beloved of God,

I recall once sharing with a community of saints and saying “Man wants to REST in an earth that has been colonized by a worldly system which was designed not to entertain God's rest. - God wants to REST in those who would live according to a different spiritual economy which the heavens want to introduce/import to the earth and thereby colonize it. God has not found rest (as it was of old), so man also hasn’t also found rest. Isa. 66:1-3

It further amazes me to realize that the imprint of THE WORLD upon the SOULS OF MEN, which surfaces in all aspect of our daily conversations, from print to digital media and from tangible to intangible interactions,  would either have to be purged while HERE ON EARTH or IN THE WORLD TO COME and not primarily when we get to the PRESENT HEAVEN as assumed by many.  

Many have erroneously branded man’s exit from the earth as A Call To Glory while biblically speaking, GLORY ONLY AWAITS THOSE WHO HAVE ACQUIRED OR INHERITED A GLORIOUS NATURE WHILE ON EARTH BY PROMPT OBEDIENCE TO THE VOICE OF THE SON/THE LEADING OF THE SPIRIT! Making it to heaven is not in anyway synonymous attaining rest. In fact the contrary is the case! ANY BELIEVER IN HEAVEN WHO HADN’T UNDERSTOOD AND SUBMITTED TO THE DEMANDS OF THE PROMISE OF REST, HASN’T RESTED. Believers are therefore at the mercy of understanding the book of Revelation chapters 2, 3, 21 & 22, lest they arrive heaven (which would soon be folded like vesture) with a soul state not too different from that of the thief on the cross, i.e. without glory, Naked and Ashamed (Pls read 2Cor. 5:3/Rev. 3:17/Rev. 16:15 and Mk. 8:38/Rom. 5:5/Heb. 11:16).

Heb. 3:15 While it is said, To day IF ye will HEAR HIS VOICE, harden not your hearts…

Acts 22:14 And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee (Paul), that thou shouldest Know His Will, and See That Just One, and shouldest Hear The Voice of his mouth.
(This should be the desire/prayer of every true disciple of Christ)

Heb. 4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, A PROMISE being left us of ENTERING INTO HIS REST  (i.e. not just making it to heaven but rather inheriting the divine nature), any of you should seem to come short of it (i.e. like a whole generation did in the wilderness, save Caleb and Joshua, this is scary!)

Like Ester had to be prepared and Purified with oil of myrrh and sweet odours for twelve months before she could appear before King Ahasuerus, those who would Sit At His Right Hand/Rest would have been Purified by the sweet savor the KNOWLEDGE OF THE FAITH OF CHRIST (Est. 2:12/Jn. 17:17/2Cor. 2:14). Believers or even ministers who didn’t have such experience while on earth would have to wait to be exposed to the Ministry of His Face and be Healed By Feeding On The Tree of Life in the twelve calendar month of the world to come, an alternative we definitely don’t want to settle for! (Rev. 22:2-4)

The present church or average believer/minister is a seeker of THE WORKS OF HIS HANDS, which is God’s provision to enable us BELIEVE HIM, but because the JOB DESCRIPTION OF SONS is to bruise/deal with Satan (Rom. 16:20/Ps. 110:2), a totally different syllabus is required! Only the MINISTRY OF HIS FACE can get this job done and earn us a warm embrace from the Father and Son. This is where TRUE FELLOWSHIP (1Jn. 1:3) begins which would result in our  KNOWING HIM like the Apostles did and ultimately cause the Father to declare once again, these are my beloved sons in whom I AM WELL PLEASED! MAY WE NOT BE ONE OF THOSE WHO WOULD DENY THE FATHER OF THIS TESTIMONY, AMEN.

1Jn. 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
(i.e. This is John The Divine’s definition of REST which takes place after  journeying from the souls state of Little Children -1Jn. 2:12- through that of Young Men -1Jn. 2:13- into the stature of Fatherhood -1Jn. 2:14-. THIS IS A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE FROM WHAT WE CURRENTLY KNOW OR CALL ‘FELLOWSHIP’
Sheep constantly need fresh water/pasture and their best water source is early morning dew! They are defenseless, don't hear well or see well, easily stray and are therefore TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON THEIR SHEPHERD FOR EVERY NEED. Does This Describe Us? If not, We Are Simply Strangers To The Lamb’s Voice and are not yet in sync with heaven’s concept of rest.

Jn. 10:3 … and the Sheep Hear His Voice: and he calleth His Own Sheep By Name, and leadeth them out.
Bless You!
