#450 1 I Kingdom: Walking Through The Kingdom

            The Natural Realm Of The Spiritual Psyche

            Thinking: The Mind Of The Kingdom Realm

We are using this word “Psyche” out of its standard dictionary meaning of soul or life. For example having the “Mind of Christ” has no definition in the dictionary. The reason is because the term does not apply to the natural realm of the natural man. Within the physical being of a true Christian there is a new creation person. The natural man relates to the natural and physical realm. The new creation person relates to this mystical realm of the Spirit of God and to spiritual things.

1Cor 2:14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. 15 But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no man. 16 For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE SHOULD INSTRUCT HIM? But we have the mind of Christ.

psyche >noun the human soul, mind, or spirit. The human inner man or the natural man whom relates to earth, the natural and the physical realm.

However, the Mind (Gk -nous) of Christ is speaking of the realm of the New Inner Man that relates to the Spirit of God and to a higher realm of spiritual things. Since the Kingdom Dimension is of another realm beyond the understanding of the natural man and natural words, we may need to readjust our thinking patterns and word definitions to include some new applications and meaning of earth words. This may not be too easy to accept but there is a good reason to do it.

1Cor 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God, 13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.

To comprehend the things of God requires that we be taught by the Holy Spirit. However, He does NOT teach with human wisdom but with new thoughts conveyed by new words taught by the Holy Spirit. Where will we obtain these spiritual words to convey spiritual thoughts that are given by the Spirit? Obviously these words must be in a language we can all understand or we could just minister in tongues. These are words familiar to our language but we are assigning different dimensions of meaning to them from the standard definitions found in the dictionary.

The reason for these different thoughts and new word meaning is because we are attempting to prepare the Church for trials, testing, thinking, functioning or ministering in the dimensions of the Kingdom and in eternal realms. These realms and understanding must relate us to faculties or phenomena that are unexplainable by natural words that relate to natural laws or science or the philosophies of man. The new “religion of Science” is always inventing new words to explain their concepts even in the natural realms. Computing has also had to invent new words to convey new concepts. For example; there is a new term given this year which is “Cloud Computing.” Both of these words- cloud and computing- are familiar earth words but now together they are assigned a new and different meaning. We are always struggling to find these elusive words or combination of words to explain spiritual thoughts and spiritual things.

For example; 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.

Verses like these do not make any sense to the natural human mind. Setting our “mind” on things above, in these mystical realms where Christ is, requires a different kind of intelligence. This “reality” appears to be beyond our current capacity to demonstrate in any practical way. However, IF the Living and Abiding Word of God lives in us and the Word of God is the Spirit of Christ, it is possible that we may currently have and can now utilize the Mind of Christ. This would certainly be a great help in recognizing and defining the next restoration and in interpreting difficult scriptures. Since the Holy Spirit has come to reveal Christ to us, He must gives us spiritual thoughts and then spiritual words to convey these spiritual thoughts that reveal Christ to us.

This experience is obviously possible for us today but I can not guarantee it to everybody who reads the scriptures. Just because we find these facts in the scripture doesn’t mean it is experientially true of all of us. Multitudes have been convinced they are in the Kingdom simply because they have accepted Jesus as their personal Servant or Savior. Of course it is possible that some have fully surrendered to and submitted themselves to the Kingdom Government of God. But how can we be certain until we can see some Kingdom Life and obedience being manifested. The doctrine of the Kingdom is one thing but the Life and experience of His eternal government is quite another.

Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21 For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God, or give thanks; but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Everyone who is born into this earthly and Adamic life has built into them at creation some inner knowledge about God. They also have, in this physical realm, an inherent knowledge of what is right and wrong, good and evil, and that which is acceptable and unacceptable. All this is what we obtained from the first Adam. This is built into the human psyche of the natural man so no one has an excuse. However, because they refused to honor God they began a downward spiral getting farther from God until some men have ended up as garbage and only fit to burn. Not only did we inherit our sin and fallen life from Adam but we inherited some elusive knowledge of God from Adam. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil has provided some inherent knowledge that is still with man today. Why? Because man, naturally, always gravitates toward the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

This can be referred to as inner knowledge in the physical realm and an inherent understanding or what we call intuition that was built into the natural man from creation. These dimensions of inherent knowledge reveals the Kingdom that manifests itself in the natural, human, physical realms. Why? Because the Kingdom consciousness was built into us at creation. All our organs, blood, nerves, heart, lungs and digestion reflect the natural laws of the Kingdom.

If everybody just did what they know intuitively is “right,” the Kingdom could be manifested in the natural earth realm. However, this is not the ultimate realm of the Kingdom Government of God that we are seeking for in our day. Some who are writing things about the Kingdom focus upon this physical, earthly and natural dimension. That is certainly not wrong but that is not the Kingdom that we must preach in the whole world as a witness to every nation. This Eternal Kingdom cannot be defined or recognized by what is “good or evil.” It can only be defined by the “Life and Government of God” that is experienced and manifested in the earth realm. We can see in both secular and church history that this lower dimension of the Kingdom has been demonstrated here on earth by different groups over the years. Some were religious and others were not. Some lived in commune and others did not. Some may even be of a different religion or had no religion.

For example; The laws of sowing and reaping even work among the heathen, the unsaved and the barely saved simply because these are the laws of creation. Sowing and reaping in the Kingdom realm works in a similar way but not in the purely earthly realms of finance as has been taught. In other words, sowing finance (money) is NOT necessarily a spiritual law of sowing and reaping but a natural law built into creation. The Law of Gravity or the Law of Mathematics are like that.

The Kingdom dimension that we are trying to share is of a higher realm and in the spiritual dimension. This “Eternal Kingdom” is limited to those who have been “birthed into it.” These are the “spiritual births” referred to in John 3: 3 to 5.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4 Nicodemus *said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” :5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 “Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Neither the natural birth or the natural man can “see”, “enter” or participate in this Eternal Kingdom. Being born of the flesh and remaining in the flesh is one thing but it is a completely different thing to be born of the Spirit and to live in the realm of spirit. This higher realm is the home of the Kingdom of God that we are preaching. We must be “birthed” into another dimension of life and understanding. These series of “births” produce a new inner man that has a different and higher realm of “spirit, soul or mind.” These become the source of understanding that is far above that of the natural, physical man. The Voice of God is heard in these higher realms of comprehension.

The Literal Greek says; The Spirit breathes where He wishes and you hear the voice of Him, but you do not know where He has come from or where He is going; so is EVERYBODY WHO IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT.

If we established this definition of “born of the Spirit” as the normal Christian experience and apply that to the visible church, we would understand how far the visible church is from that actual experience. Very few are actually moving in different realms of the Spirit as stated here! If every body that was in the visible church were “born of the Spirit,” the church would look and function differently. If our definition of “His Church” is “ EVERYBODY WHO IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT”, it would eliminate a large portion of the visible church. Does that mean these are “not Saved?” We are not sharing about being saved or lost but about participating in “The Stream Of God’s Creative Purpose.” We are focusing upon fulfilling His Eternal Purpose by preparing ourselves for the “world yet to come.” Our concern is about obtaining the experiential reality of the Kingdom Government of God in our present experience. This is what will prepare us to participate in the Eternal Government of the “world yet to come.” Since this “preparation” is designed for the church age, if it is effective in the local church, the church should be manifesting much more evidence of spiritual Life than is currently seen.

I am speculating that there must be some radical change in our natural psyche of the natural man before we can operate in the realm of the spiritual psyche ( the Mind of Christ)! From these scriptures it is clear that to see or enter into these higher realms of preparation, we should move into a higher realm of understanding. This is NOT possible in the natural mind. This higher realm of thought is what we are referring to as “spiritual psyche.” Medical science has now discovered that there is a difference between what we call “mind” and the brain. For example; even after the brain waves have ceased functioning and the person is declared “dead” the mind is still active. If they can revive the person, sometimes the person will recall everything that was happening after they were declared “dead.” Therefore, we are not dismissing the brain from the spiritual dimension.

I am assuming it is the “natural psyche” that is rejecting the message of the Kingdom and this higher dimension of understanding today. The “natural psyche” cannot accept any realm of understanding beyond its own comprehension.

In “Walking Through The Kingdom” in the earth realm, there is obviously various dimensions and intensity of preparation necessary. We have mentioned just a few in these studies. We are not advocating “introspection” but developing a new, higher dimension of intuition, conscience and discernment.

Definition of introspection >noun the examination of one’s own thoughts or feelings. A continuous looking into one’s self. A self evaluation. Looking inward.

Human introspection can accomplish very little because we are only evaluating the earthly, natural and temporal and that which is passing away. It is not wrong but it is not the same thing as spiritual intuition, conscience, discernment and knowledge of the higher mind, the Mind of Christ. Introspection that is only evaluating the thoughts and desires of the outward, physical man and his attributes, does nothing in building the new inner man. If we could evaluate the thoughts and intension of the new inner man and check out his reality, that might be helpful in understanding where we are in the process of spiritual development. However, that cannot be accomplished with the human psyche. If we are living in the realms of the Mind of Christ then human introspection is NOT necessary and may even delay the process of spiritual development. The knowledge, understanding and obedience to the Laws of the Kingdom are in this higher realm of intuition.

One of the problems that has developed in religious circles is that man generally has reasoned from his own consciousness and from the earth dimension up to God. The Bible, however, begins with God and reasons down to man. This principle is found in many scriptures but is demonstrated clearly in Romans first chapter. It is also seen in “Glory to God in the highest and peace among men.’ Or our Father who is in heaven. In the beginning, God. “In the beginning was the Word” begins with God and reasons down to man. This is seen in John 1.

When men begin with themselves and reason up to God, they wonder where Cain got his wife. Or what happens to those who have not heard the gospel. Endless questions arise when men begin with their own consciousness and carnal understanding. If we begin ALL our inquires with God and His eternal Purpose, most all other things become irrelevant. It is not that these questions are unimportant for man to know but in comparison to God and His heart’s desire for man in eternity future, these questions have a low priority.

If it is possible to develop an active mind in the higher dimension of the “Mind of Christ”, the hidden wisdom in the Bible would be readily understood. The Living and Abiding Word of God would be a “Living book” that could be understood and experienced out of an inner Life. There is obviously a natural mind ( set on the flesh and temporal things) and another mind (set on the Spirit and eternal realms) but these are not two minds of the natural man. The higher mind belongs to the new inner man. These two think in entirely different dimensions. For the Christian, the term “mind” needs to be modified to include this higher dimension of understanding. For example; A spiritual message cannot be understood by the natural mind. Rather, the natural mind thinks a spiritual message is foolishness.

The dictionary only gives reference to the natural mind. mind >noun 1 the faculty of consciousness and thought. 2 a person’s intellect or memory. 3 a person identified with their intellectual faculties. 4 a person’s attention or will.

It would be very helpful if we had another dictionary that explains words in the spiritual dimensions. That is not possible because we only have natural words. Therefore, we must create new meanings for natural words to explain spiritual and eternal Truths. These “new word meanings” seem strange to the natural mind of the natural man. This is what makes “Walking Through The Kingdom In The Natural Realms” so difficult to define.

For that reason we must ALWAYS begin every inquiry within the Sovereignty of God who is absolutely Sovereign over all His creation. Man can only accurately define himself in relationship to the Sovereignty of God. Why is this necessary? Because man’s complete design, his consciousness and creation begins out of the Stream of God’s Creative Sovereignty. Man did NOT create himself. For that reason, man was created to flow into “The Stream of God’s Creative Purpose” which is the River of Life for the New Man. This “River of Life” flows from the “Creative Throne of God” which is ground “O” of His absolute Sovereignty. The Sanctuary represents the purpose of God in creation.

Eze 47:12 “And by the river on its bank, on one side and on the other, will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear every month because their water flows from the sanctuary, and their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing.”

Rev 22:1 And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, 2 in the middle of its street. And on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

“In the middle of its street” is a little confusing because “street” has been given a new and different meaning here. The word translated is “platus” which means “spread out flat” a “plot that is broad and wide.” The first significance of this river is that it flows from the Throne of God and the Lamb (Jesus). The Throne of God is of the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit. Of The Lamb refers to the Man Christ Jesus who has taken His seat at the right hand of God. The Stream of God’s New Creative Purpose now begins with our Head, the Man Christ Jesus and flows out into the dimensions of man as the River of Life.

We interpret this as “The Stream of God’s Creative Purpose” Is “The River of Life for Each of Us” who will surrender to God’s Eternal Purpose.

Isa 33:20 Look upon Zion, the city of our appointed feasts; Your eyes shall see Jerusalem an undisturbed habitation, A tent which shall not be folded, Its stakes shall never be pulled up Nor any of its cords be torn apart. 21 But there the majestic One, the LORD, shall be for us A place of rivers and wide canals, On which no boat with oars shall go, And on which no mighty ship shall pass--

No boat with oars refers to “human effort.” The natural man is trying to go too fast by rowing or rowing in the opposite direction to the gentle flowing in the “Stream of God’s Creative Purpose.” Zion, Jerusalem, is the place that the Majestic One will be for us “Rivers and Wide Canals.” A “plot that is broad and wide.” The word “street” seems completely out of place here. The farther the river flows the deeper it gets and we can assume the narrower it gets, therefore, the deeper it gets and the greater is the fulfillment of God’s Creative Purpose for man. However, this is NOT a matter of human effort but just flowing with God’s Creative Purpose which is the River of Life for us.

It is for this reason that we must begin to reason from God down to man rather than from man up to God. Man generally wants to begin with himself and then discover how God fits into man’s situations, his blessings, into man’s welfare and provision. If we always begin in the Creative Purpose of God we will save ourselves a lot of false doctrines, concepts, emphasis and wasted time in preparing for the age that is quickly approaching. In most religious circles this requires a radical departure from what is accepted as “normal” and then “thinking” in a dimension that is much too difficult for our natural mind to accept. However, thinking in this higher dimension is NOT a problem for the “Mind of Christ,” the spiritual psyche of the new creation inner man.

Our theme is “Walking Through The Kingdom” in the natural realm but in the dimension of the spiritual psyche. From this it becomes clear why “Preaching the Word of the Kingdom” becomes so important. It is essential in redirecting our mental capacities and our spiritual insights into the eternal realms of the Kingdom of God. The New Jerusalem, Mount Zion, The Throne of God, the Sanctuary and the River of Life are only more Christian cliches until we begin to see God’s Eternal Purpose from the viewpoint of the Absolute Sovereignty of God and the Stream of His Creative Purpose.

“The Gospel of Salvation” has certainly NOT served the church well in redirecting their thoughts into the eternal realms. Just thinking about heaven, someday, has been the result of focusing upon being “saved.” Even the “rapture” has become man centered and the carnal Christian’s way of escaping from suffering, pain and death. To separate the bride, the man child company, the overcomer, the bondservant, the manifested sons of God and the sons of the High Priest from the common “believer” is offensive to many preachers who should know better.

The fact that Christ Jesus is returning for His bride who is without spot or wrinkle, holy and blameless and whom has grown to His measure and stature and fullness and has been conformed to His image, is not considered very important because “we are saved”, as if that was the whole purpose of God. The fact that Christ Jesus will vomit all lukewarm believers out of His body is ignored because “we are saved.”

“Saved” has become a false, stereotyped term that solves all of man’s problems and perfects man to take his place in eternity. This theory is easily shaken if we just read the Bible ourselves instead of trusting our eternity to some preacher that is sharing his own concepts, beliefs and hopes.

When we begin our search for Truth in God’s Absolute Sovereignty and set our life and vision into the Stream of God’s Creative Purpose, “salvation” takes on a far greater meaning and requirement. “Saved” means more than escape from hell and we understand that “forgiveness of sins” is the beginning of a process that is designed to prepare us to function within God’s Eternal Purpose.

There is a perverted tendency among men to relate everything to themselves and to consider themselves as the center of all that God will do. Therefore, man thinks that his well being and prosperity is the first priority in God’s mind. This twisted concept in the pulpit has separated multitudes from the real purpose of God and have confused the issues of eternity. Many “ministers of God” have made God’s recovery work in the Cross which is FOR man to be the whole purpose of God and by that emphasis have fallen into error. Therefore, they have ignored God’s recovery work IN man and consider it to be non-essential. Forgiveness of sins is a great blessing but it was not meant to overshadow His full recovery work of redeeming man from his fallen condition so man can fulfill the very purpose for which he was created in the first place. It is amazing how difficult it is to prepare man’s natural mind to comprehend this basic principle of the Christian Life.

The natural mind appears to be the enemy of spiritual insight and is a twister of the meaning of even basic scriptures. For example; The blood of Passover was not meant for man to see or understand. God said “When I see the blood I will Passover.” The blood is not a matter of understanding, or for man to see but the blood is toward God. It is not a matter of feeling but is a matter of faith in what God said to believe and to do. Believing in the blood is NOT the same as applying the blood to our life in accordance with what God said.

The cross where Jesus died was in full view of everybody and was done publically. The blood was shed publically but its application is done privately between us and God. The blood is still individual even today! Can human thought comprehend the true essence of the blood of Christ Jesus? No! But God expects us to accept His evaluation of the blood by faith. After the Blood is properly applied, Jesus still must walk among the Lampstand churches to warn, threaten, correct and to condemn their casual manner of living. It is amazing what the natural mind has done with the blood of Jesus. Theologians have made Revelation 2 &3 dispensational and destroyed the message.

While the blood is essential in God’s recovery work and forgiveness of sins, it does not overshadow the work of the Holy Spirit or eliminate God’s work in us which is designed to redeem us from every lawless deed.

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, 12 instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus; 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.

Therefore, we can confidently say that everything that God has purposed for Himself in eternity future is all within the Circle of His Absolute Sovereignty. The Kingdom Government of God, the Church He is Building, His absolute Authority, His Divine Provision, His Divine Will and His Grace and Mercy are ALL active and functioning within the Circle of His Ultimate Sovereignty.

Anything that man attempts to build outside the Circle of His Absolute Sovereignty and Authority is wasted time and effort. It ends up being burned because it was built by human effort out of earthly material. Building with wood, hay and straw is fruitless effort because it will not pass the test of fire or transition into eternity.

Everything will be judged out of God’s Absolute Sovereignty. There is a “theory” that everything will be judged out of God’s mercy, grace and Divine compassion. Therefore, our rebellion, casual lifestyle and lukewarmness will be freely forgiven out of God’s unwavering mercy. If we begin with God and His Ultimate Sovereignty, it is clear that God’s mercy, grace and Divine compassion are ALL within the Circle of His Absolute Sovereignty and His Eternal Purpose. Our advise is not to trust in some theory like that but bring your life to an absolute consecration under God’s Sovereignty and set your goal to fulfill God’s Eternal Purpose. Without His Absolute Sovereignty there can be no Kingdom Government. It we treat His Kingdom Government in some casual way, we will seek for options and obey those inner laws of the Kingdom if we want or we ignore them if we want.

Some uninformed people say obedience is not necessary under grace because “we are Saved” not by works but by faith through grace. This error comes because man begins with himself and reasons up to include God but he wants to live outside His Sovereignty and Government.

Just because man fell into sin and out of the Purpose of God doesn’t mean that man cast off any knowledge of the Kingdom or that he escaped from the Kingdom that is built into man at the creation. In the same way that every one knows God intuitively within the creation, man also knows about the laws of God that govern the universe. Man intuitively knows the difference between good and evil because that knowledge is built into us at the creation. There are consequences to breaking the inner Laws of the Kingdom that are built into our digestive system, into our mental systems, our nerves, heart, lungs and blood systems are all created to harmonize with the Kingdom. This is the Kingdom in the natural realm of creation that we are identifying. This physical realm is one valid way to “see” the Kingdom but there are the higher realms of the Kingdom that are here with us but are not of the earth / dirt realm. The Kingdom built into creation in the temporal earth dimension is not the same dimension of reality as the Kingdom that is the Eternal Government of God.

“I can do nothing on my own initiative” means that Jesus was functioning under the Kingdom Government of God. Because of the Sovereignty of God and Jesus ministering under that sovereignty, He could do anything the Father wanted done. In other words; “I only do under the Sovereignty of the Father what I see the Father doing IN His Sovereignty.”

Trying to develop the “church” into full maturity ( into His image and likeness and into the fullness of His character and stature) out side of the circle of His absolute sovereignty is already destined to failure.

The term commonly used when applied to man is “life.” However, there are two kinds of “life.” Jesus defined them as “psuche” and “Zoe.” He said if you save your “psuche” you will lose it but if you lose your “psuche” you will find it to “Zoe” eternal. The word “Zoe” has been given a new spiritual meaning in the New Testament. Zoe was formerly applied to “zoo” or animal life. However, now it is raised to a higher spiritual dimension to refer to “Eternal Life.” Whenever He speaks of the uncreated Life of God He uses the word “Zoe.” Now this is a “spiritual word to convey a spiritual thought that is given by the Spirit.”

Life is not meant to be static. Life is always ascending or descending but seldom does it remain static. This is true of either the psuche or the Zoe Life. Our psuche -life- has been in the ascending mode in the natural realm all our life. God’s plan and purpose requires the psuche - life- to descend from its predominate position as the government of our person. In the Kingdom there is only one King and one Government that is designed to control everything according to the Stream of God’s Creative Purpose. Therefore, the old natural life - psuche- must give up its dominion over our person and direction and the new life - Zoe - must become the predominate force and direction for each Christian whom sets out to fulfill the purpose of God and to “Walk in the Kingdom.”

Trying to be a Christian out of the psuche -life- has been the norm for too long. Spiritual truth is lost in the psuche - life - of the natural man simply because he cannot understand it. This has been a common error in the visible church for generations. Living by the psuche -life - has been the source of much frustration, carnal function and certain failure both in the pulpit and in the pew.

John 1:4 In Him was life, {Zoe} and the life {Zoe} was the light of men.

Our light and revelation originates with His Life -Zoe!

1John 1:1 What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we beheld and our hands handled, concerning the Word of Life- Zoe- 2 and the life- Zoe-was manifested, and we have seen and bear witness and proclaim to you the eternal life -Zoe-, which was with the Father and was manifested to us

Rom 6:4 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.

The resurrection life - Zoe- must come from Christ. This life -Zoe- has already passed through death and is eternal. Burying the old life -psuche- in the waters of baptism is one thing but obtaining the resurrection life -Zoe - in abundance is essential if we are to experience the ascending life - Zoe - which is essential to “Walk In The Kingdom.”

Attempting to do the “greater works” out of the psuche-life- is a big disappointment. Trying to “manifest the gifts” out of the psuche -life - has proven to be rather disgusting. Ministering out of the psuche -life- has been dead, mechanical and boring. Why is that true? Because the Life -Zoe- is essential for the anointing of the Holy Spirit to function properly.

The Holy Spirit was with them and upon them before the Holy Spirit was poured out at Pentecost. After Jesus breathed resurrection Life - Zoe- into them [ John 20:22] they could receive the Holy Spirit in them as an abiding and living power. It is the Spirit of Life - Zoe- that sets us free from the Law of sin and death.

It is this uncreated Life- Zoe- of God that identifies the new creation man that has been granted a New Covenant. The True Christian MUST be of this new species that has died to the dominion of the psuche - life- and been buried in the waters of baptism. The new species is living by the uncreated Life of God, filled with the Holy Spirit and has brought his Life- Zoe- under the absolute Sovereignty of God through the full consecration offering.

“Walking Through The Kingdom” in the next dimension will certainly require an exchange of Life and the metamorphose into the New Species. Preaching the Kingdom in the physical realm to the old creation Christian is a big waste of time because he can neither understand the message and neither will he want the Kingdom to be the absolute Government in his life. This is the greatest frustration inherent with preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom in the whole world as a witness to every nation.

Matthew 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end shall come.

Jesus said; 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.”

Before the New Birth was available, Jesus was limited to preaching the Kingdom to old creation men. His method was limited to parables and dark sayings. Now we have the opportunity to preach to the New Species Christian with spiritual words to convey spiritual thoughts that have been given by the Holy Spirit. Old Words and Old Thoughts will not work for this next restoration. We are crippled by the lack of these new words.
