#393 Kingdom: The Kingdom Life And Nature

We are constantly attempting to clarify the terms that apply to the Kingdom Life and God’s total provision for us to participate in that eternal dimension. The more we examine the Kingdom requirements, from the earth dimension of redeemed man, the more difficult or impossible they appear. For that reason it is necessary to revisit some of the provision that God has clearly made for us, to enable us to participate. Why? Because none of these things can be consistently practiced by the natural, carnal man who is only born after the nature of Adam.

The shocking thing, we immediately discover, is that the person who is born again and redeemed is still not able to consistently live according to these Kingdom requirements. This indicates that MORE than forgiveness of sins is necessary to live according to the Kingdom laws. The Kingdom demands reveal the inability of the natural man to live in that dimension. Simply being “forgiven” or even being “born-again” is not sufficient “transformation” to live according to the Demands of the Kingdom. If Jesus did NOT present the Kingdom Demands as part of His Gospel we might easily think that forgiveness of sins was all we needed to enter the Kingdom. Because the Kingdom has been ignored by much of the church, it is popular to believe that ALL we need is forgiveness of sins to “go to heaven.” Therefore, forgiveness of sins becomes the goal rather than just one step toward the goal of participating in the Kingdom Life and Government.

Some Bible commentaries say that the Kingdom requirements are so difficult that they cannot be for the church under grace. Therefore, they must be for Israel during the Millennium. Since there are more than 150 scriptures devoted to the Kingdom of God it is clear this “theory” is completely bogus for the church age. In fact, it is in this church age that we MUST press into the Kingdom and bring forth the fruit of the Kingdom.

Mat 21:43 "Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you, and be given to a nation producing the fruit of it.

However, the Kingdom was not established in the land of Israel as an earthly, political government but is now being established in those who submit to its Government and produce the fruit of the Kingdom. This indicates that the Kingdom is experiential and NOT just another doctrine.

Luke 4:43 But He said to them, "I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose."

Mark 9:1 And He was saying to them, "Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who shall not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power."

It is clear that the Kingdom HAS come and is here today and He is ruling in the inner man during the whole church age. The primary reason for the coming of Christ at that time was to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom. Of course no one can enter the Kingdom who does not have forgiveness of sins. Therefore, to establish the Kingdom in the lives of Christians, Jesus HAD to die for sins and complete the work of Calvary. He MUST die, be buried and then be resurrected. Why? Salvation is by participating in His resurrection Life.

 Rom 5:10 For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

In the study on “sin” and “sins” we showed that “sins” are forgiven but “sin” must be taken into death and burial. Why? “SINS” are what we have done but “SIN” is the nature we inherited from first Adam and identifies what we are in relationship to God. Blood is set against “SINS” while death and burial are set against “SIN.”

We will attempt to clarify this by examining the life of Jesus, the Christ of God! Jesus was not born in the same way as we were born. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit in the body of the virgin Mary. His Father is in heaven and has sent His Sperma to Mary via the Holy Spirit. This Sperma is the Spirit of Christ, the Living and abiding Word of God. Because He was not born from Adam He did not carry in Him “the SIN nature.” Instead He was born with the nature of His Father but within the body of a man. He was NOT born with the sin nature of first Adam. By being born as a genuine man He was like us and was tempted in all things the same way as we are tempted. He was a genuine man with the same limitations that we experience, but without “SIN.” The reason this is essential is because He would die for the “sins” of the world and had to be our perfect sacrifice and without “sin”. That means as a Lamb without defect! No other “man” that was ever born on this earth could ever qualify as our “Savior” except Jesus Christ! Every other man was born from Adam and carried the DNA of Adam’s “SIN.”

1Cor 15:21 For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all shall be made alive.

Since “death” came to us through the “first man” Adam, the solution to the “death problem” must be solved by the “Second Man,” Jesus Christ!

1Cor 15:45 So also it is written, "The first MAN, Adam, BECAME A LIVING SOUL." The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual. 47 The first man is from the earth, earthy; the second man is from heaven. 48 As is the earthy, so also are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, so also are those who are heavenly. 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 50 Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.

ALL those who never escape from the earthly, shall perish with the earthly. Those who never escape from the first man, Adam, will perish with ALL those who are of Adam. Unless we make the transition out of Adam and into Christ we can NEVER bear the image of the heavenly and therefore, we cannot inherit the Kingdom of God.

1Cor 15:53 For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.

In our time period, everything in us that is mortal or from the first Adam must be swallowed up by His Life. Therefore, We are being saved by His Life!

2Cor 5:1 For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For indeed in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven; 3 inasmuch as we, having put it on, shall not be found naked. 4 For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed, but to be clothed, in order that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.

2Cor 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

AFTER forgiveness of “SINS” there is still the problem of “SIN.” Since the life of Jesus never ever had any “SIN” attached to it, He can save us by His Life. He becomes a “life giving Spirit.”

The general response to this is; Well, that IS JESUS but remember this is just us. How can God demand ANYTHING of us since we are just forgiven sinners? That lie must be uncovered immediately if we are going to inherit the Kingdom and obey the Kingdom Government. Remember, flesh and blood are eliminated from the Kingdom. Therefore, we must escape from the “flesh and blood” realm. That means we must rise above the “flesh and blood” mentality and into the realm of “eternal salvation.”

The Two Natures Of Jesus.

The Man Christ Jesus was both God and Man. He had the body and all the cares of a man and the divine nature of God. He was born of a woman but He was conceived by God. He was conceived with the Sperma of God, which is the Living and Abiding Word of God, and therefore He was the Son of God, but living in a human body. He was a “human” but without “SIN” and He was the Son of God with the Life of God. However, that life [psuche] that He possessed while living as a man had not yet passed through death. For that reason He was not yet able to impart resurrection Life to us. After being raised from the dead by the Holy Spirit He was able to impart resurrection Life to us. That “Life giving Spirit” is the Spirit of Christ! Now the resurrected and ascended Man, Christ Jesus, could become the Life-giving Spirit to us. This Spirit is not the Holy spirit but the Living and Abiding Word of God, the Spirit of Christ.

Rom 8:8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. 10 And if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.

     2Cor 5:14 For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; 15 and He died for all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.

Even though Jesus Christ was born of a woman, who was born of Adam, His death removed every trace of Adam from Him. HIS Resurrection identified Jesus as a completely new and different species of man upon this earth.

Rom 1:4 who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord,

Now the Living and Abiding Word of God, in His resurrection state, is able to be received by those believers who exercise faith in His eternal sacrifice. Eze 36:26 "Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 "And I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances.

The “new heart” is not a new heart of the natural, outward man but is part of the “new inner man.” Then He puts a “new Spirit” within us which is the “spirit of the New Man.” Then He puts the Holy Spirit in us which is “My Spirit.” The “New Man”has a new heart so he can understand things of the Kingdom dimension. The “New Man” is a totally new creation that is both image and likeness. He is both new soul {mind} and new spirit with both the Spirit of Christ AND the Holy Spirit. The “new man”doesn’t function out of a brain but out of the mind of Christ. The “old man”functions out of a natural brain and a corrupted mind. Therefore, the new man can rise above the limitation of the natural brain and human intellect and can receive revelation from the Holy Spirit and understand things in the realm of the Living and Abiding Word of God within.

John 1:4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, 13 who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

This “receive HIM” is not accepting or believing a certain doctrine about Him but experientially receiving HIM into our inner being.

The “new man” has been born of God and has NOT been born of anything from the earth realm. The “new man” has his beginning in God, being conceived by the Sperma of God which is the Living and Abiding Word of God. This is exactly the same Sperma that conceived Jesus in the womb of Mary.

Now the Living and Abiding Word of God has been made available to come and indwell us. 1Pet 1:22 Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart, 23 for you have been born again not of seed {Greek- Sperma} which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and abiding word of God.

Without this “birth” we will never be able to see or enter the Kingdom of God. Why? Because unless we are born again we can NEVER become the new species of man that is required to participate in the Kingdom of God. Born-again is our first step in separating from Adam. Following the born-again experience we MUST separate from our genealogy to Adam through death and burial and disable the “SIN” nature that we inherited from Adam. { One translation says “shut down” the “sin factory.”}

Rom 6:1 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace might increase? 2 May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? 3 Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. [ZOE]

This death and burial is not a matter of solving “SINS” which are forgiven but of “SIN” which MUST enter into death and burial. Why? Because ONLY that which is of the resurrection, into a new and different species, can go on to perfection and participate in God’s Eternal Purpose! The Adam species is of the earth, earthly, and is only mortal. Therefore, Adam can NEVER participate in the immortal. ONLY that which is raised from the dead can be considered as immortal. For that reason baptism in water is not and can never be optional if we are to participate in His resurrection Life.

The next problem that the redeemed man has is his connection to the flesh and all that is carnal and natural. Since this body has been corrupted by its connection to Adam and we have contracted very bad habits, attitudes, and character defects, God must supply some means of “overcoming” all that remains from our association with Adam. He does this by “Baptizing us with the Holy Spirit.” The Holy Spirit begins a war with the flesh, our old habits, our fallen attitudes and our poor qualities of character. These fallen characteristics can NEVER reflect the nature and Life of Christ. All these “mortal defects” must be overcome by being swallowed up by His Life.

In other words we must be born into the same realm that Jesus was born into. Just as He was conceived by the Sperma of God that was delivered by the Holy Spirit into a “virgin womb,”our new man must be conceived by the sperma of God that is delivered by the Holy Spirit into a “virgin womb” that has been cleansed by faith in the shed blood. That specific Sperma IS the Living and Abiding Word of God which conceives the New Man who is of the New Species that is without “SIN.”

1John 3:9 No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed {Sperma} abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

It should be obvious that this verse is not speaking of the old man after Adam or the natural or the carnal man conceived by perishable sperma. That Adam man was conceived in “sin.” Therefore, John must be speaking about the new man that was conceived by the Imperishable, Divine Sperma. The New Man is of the same species as Christ, having now experienced death and burial to all that is attached to the first Adam. The new man, that is created in the image of God, is without “SIN”and born of a virgin. The Jerusalem above is the “virgin”Mother of us all.

Gal 4:25 Now this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children. 26 But the Jerusalem above is free; she is our mother.

Just as Jesus was born of the Divine Sperma, the Spirit of Christ; [The Living and Abiding Word of God], so we MUST also have exactly the same beginning in our “new species man.” Surely we can see that we will have NO EXCUSE if we do not grow up in all things into Christ, who is the Head of His body. It is NOT the outer man, or the Adam man that can grow up into Christ. Therefore, it must be the “divine seed of Christ”that is planted in this “dirt man” that produces a harvest, which IS the development of the new inner man, that grows up into His image and into His likeness. Since the “Sperma”is the Spirit of Christ, ( the Living and Abiding Word of God) what is being formed in us is Christ. It is my opinion that it is the “word of the Kingdom” that is planted in the “New Man” that will bring forth the fruit of the Kingdom.

Gal 4:19 My children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you--

The mistake that too much of the visible church has made is in trying to disciple, teach and train the outward, natural man after Adam how to act like a Christian and serve God in the flesh. The message of the Kingdom “begins” by announcing that neither Adam or any of his species can EVER inherit the Kingdom. God has NO PLANS for Adam except death and burial. The Kingdom is ONLY in the realm and the reach of the “new man” which after Christ is created in the image of God. ONLY those of the “new species” can participate in the Kingdom dimension or bring forth the fruit of the Kingdom. Therefore, you MUST be born-again just to see the Kingdom but you MUST be born of the water AND the Spirit to enter the Kingdom.

Why was Jesus so adamant about this very clear announcement in John 3:3 and V5? Because He was announcing the Kingdom. “Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand.” NOTHING from the old creation of first Adam can participate. Neither man’s old spirit or his old soul can participate in the Kingdom because they are part of the fallen species of man. Those who remain in the “flesh” can NEVER inherit the Kingdom! ONLY the “new creation man” can be prepared to inherit the Kingdom.

It is my opinion that all this preaching to the “old creation man” about the blessing of God and all the promises of God for the “believer” is actually deceiving the “old creation man” into believing that he is “saved and secure.”

Until there is a totally “new creation man” none of these promises concerning the overcomer or sitting on thrones or eating of the hidden manna are valid. We must challenge the visible church to test their salvation to see if they have the real thing or just a doctrine about the real thing. Are they really a part of the Last Adam or are they still just of the first Adam. Have they “accepted Jesus as personal Savior” and remain attached to the first Adam. That kind of “salvation” is far less than the Bible indicates to be “eternal salvation.”

I will make a simple diagram to demonstrate what Kingdom Salvation involves in its basic and beginning state.



(1)The First Creation is dead in trespasses and sins. God has NO PLANS to “save” the first creation.

(2) The ONLY way to transition from the old creation to the new creation is through death and burial.

(3) There is NO valid “Christianity” unless it is functioning out of the resurrection Life!

(4) NOTHING of the old creation can be “saved.”

(5) “Christianity” that is functioning in the old creation is NOT REAL and is just another religion.


It is after the transition from the old dimension to the new dimension that the Kingdom Life and mysteries are revealed. The “new creation” is the “good soil” into which the seed {SPERMA} of the Kingdom can be planted and bring forth a harvest. Planting the Kingdom seed {SPERMA} in Adam and the old creation is a big waste of time. It will not be understood and the devil will snatch it away. Being birthed in Zion is the result of the Kingdom seed {SPERMA} being planted in the good soil and producing a harvest. The First Fruits of both Passover and Pentecost depend upon the Kingdom seed producing a harvest.

When you enter into the Kingdom [ Canaan] and reap its harvest you shall bring the first fruits into the house of God. The First Fruits of Passover shall be waved before the Lord. The First Fruits of Pentecost shall be ground very fine, baked into two loves with leaven and brought into the Holy Place in the house of God.

We must “back up” to lay these basic foundations for the Kingdom before we shall see the real results of our message. Preaching the mysteries of the Kingdom to the old creation people after Adam will just waste more time and delay the Life of the Kingdom for another generation.

Gal 6:14 But may it never be that I should boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15 For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. 16 And those who will walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.

None of these outward, religious things, is of any importance under the New Covenant. The absolute and basic requirement for ALL New Testament benefits is for the development of the “new creation man.” It appears from this scripture that the real “Israel of God” is assigned to the “new creation man.” Speaking about the visible church being the “Israel of God” is far beyond the point Paul is making.

Eph 3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man; 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;

Eph 2:15 by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace,

2Co 4:16 Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.

Rom 7:22 For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man, 23 but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind, and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members.

Col 3:1 If then you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. 3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.

It is obvious that it is our “inner man” that is raised up with Christ and NOT our outer man. What has died is NOT our new inner man or our outward body but our “old man” who is after Adam and who was “SIN” in us.

Therefore, we conclude that all our ministry to “the Adam, dirt man” over the last 38 years has been a total waste of time and has produced NOTHING of an eternal nature. Only those who have made the transition from the first Adam to the Last Adam can be counted as “saved.” Only those who have developed a new inner man whom has grown up in all things into Christ can be counted as “harvest of the first fruits.” Only those who have “grown, developed and overcome” can be counted as Citizens of the Kingdom who will sit with Him in His Throne.

From my past experience I can testify that “Straight is the gate and narrow is the way that leads to LIFE and few there be that find it!” After wasting most of my life preaching to the natural man the eternal things of the Kingdom, it is now my warning to every preacher, teacher or pastor; Do Not waste your time trying to gather hundreds of Adam, dirt people together and think God is pleased with your ministry. Set as your life goal to find those people who are sold out to God, to do His will, regardless of the cost, and focus your ministry to FIRST prepare yourself for the Kingdom and then to prepare them for the Kingdom. Teaching the “first Adam man” spiritual things is generally a big waste of time. Therefore, spend you effort in converting the Adam man to Christ, FIRST.
