#474 The Gospel of The Kingdom

            Inspiration, Revelation, Wisdom, Understanding, Spirit And Power.

The Word of the Kingdom is preached by inspiration and by revelation and therefore cannot be preached by the natural man. The natural man can learn the doctrines, the parables and the concepts of the Kingdom but he cannot preach the revelation and inspiration of the Kingdom. Why? Because the words of the Kingdom are words from another realm. This is a concept that is beyond human ability to think. “Words from another realm” to an earth bound person is just not reasonable because, to them, there is no other realm in the earth dimension. Of course those who read and believe the Bible know there are different invisible realms that belong to the Eternal dimension. For example; the Angels, the great cloud of witnesses, the departed souls and the demons are here but in the invisible realms.

2Co 4:17 For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, 18 while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

This is the problem with speaking of the invisible realm which is eternal. But then to say that we have some ability to look into these realms appears to be ridiculous. The natural man cannot hear words from that realm because they are spiritually appraised and understood. The Kingdom thoughts originate from that elevated realm and the natural man cannot function in those realms either to speak or receive understanding. This is the confusing thing about the Kingdom message. Some can receive understanding and some cannot. The spiritual condition and maturity of the hearer is the determining factor in understanding the Kingdom message.

1Cor 2:4 And my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 that your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

1Cor 2:6 Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away; 7 but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom, which God predestined before the ages to our glory; 8 the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;


1Cor 2:10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. 11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. 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.

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.

It is abundantly clear that the natural man is eliminated from receiving spiritual things or spiritual truth and yet most of our preaching and teaching and nearly all our books are written so the natural man can understand “spiritual” things. Paul is adamant that the carnal / natural/ Adam man is eliminated from the spiritual realms simply because he does not have the spiritual equipment to perceive that realm and, therefore, they cannot understand them. Why? Because he does not have the spiritual ability to understand ANYTHING from those realms. Religious education does not prepare anyone for spiritual understanding. That is why we have so many unsaved people in the pulpits and in church leadership. The level of leadership is extremely low in these formally trained but spiritually under-developed ministers. Why? Because intellectual training does not create a new creation man that can understand spiritual things.

Act 10:40 “God raised Him up on the third day, and granted that He should become visible, 41 not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us, who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead.

Jesus was invisible in His Resurrection body but God permitted him to become visible to a few people. Because we always try to bring this spiritual dimension down to the visible earth dimension in order to try to understand, we seem to think of heaven as an actual place somewhere beyond the closest planets. Since God has raised us up and seated us in heavenly places in Christ we try to put that dimension into some distance measurement. We may think of heaven as up and hell as down in direction but how far up or down we don’t know. The disciples saw Him ascend into a cloud but does that automatically mean that He went out of our universe or just that He ascended and became invisible? That invisible realm, the unseen realm, is the eternal realm. However, this IS the realm of the Lampstand Church that Christ Jesus is building. He is also speaking in that realm of the Holy Place. Ministry “of the Spirit” is from that invisible realm. The “ministry of the Word” is that “Eternal Word” that is “descending” to the visible realm but is certainly here and in us whom are born again. He can even speak within us.

Many of the Kingdom parables are only discerned from that invisible realm. Even Jesus’ explanation of the parables touch the unseen realm. This is why we have so many different and conflicting interpretations of the parables.

Mat 13:20 “And the one on whom seed was sown on the rocky places, this is the man who hears the word, and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no firm root in himself, but is only temporary, and when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he falls away.

In recent trips we saw this verse fulfilled before our eyes but our understanding of this verse was clarified by the experience. The rocky hard soil is not those who reject the word but are just natural men who rejoice to hear something new but cannot receive spiritual truth because no new inner man has developed into the maturity to perceive eternal truth.

Even though a spiritual word is preached by inspiration and revelation, the natural man can only receive it as knowledge, facts and information. If only information and facts are preached he has no difficulty understanding the message but information has no power to change or feed the new inner person. This is the worthless and fruitless activity of conducting “church” after the wisdom of men rather than by inspiration and revelation, with the demonstration of the Spirit and Power in the pulpit. Even the “pulpit” and pew has become a corrupt method of having church.

The Word of God was written by inspiration and by revelation but as soon as it was written out as black words on white paper, the words became information, facts and doctrines. From that we get a series of “letter” messages. Only inspiration and revelation can restore the inspired words of scripture to Spirit and Power in our understanding. Since this “ministry” is beyond the scope and ability of the natural man he is eliminated from spiritual ministry. This does not prevent him from being a pastor or in holding religious positions and titles in the visible church. It certainly doesn’t prevent him from preaching.

It is for this very reason that each of the Outer Court preparations is essential for the function of the Priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek. These seven Outer Court transformations and foundational experiences are to eliminate the natural limitations of the natural man so the new inner man can begin to function in the wholly spiritual light {the Seven Spirits of God} of the Holy Place and receive the revelations from the Showbread.

When the Spiritual and Kingdom Words of Revelation and Inspiration fall on natural ears there is simply no good soil for it to take root. For that reason no eternal fruit is realized. This IS the tremendous frustration of making these trips to many places and trying to share Kingdom Truth with un-prepared and underdeveloped ministries. We have encountered “Apostles” of large denominations that thought the first four basic Outer Court foundations were very deep truths. Meeting “natural apostles” who are limited to preaching natural information is very disturbing because we see the empty lives and faces of the people they are called to take on to perfection. We met so many “ministers” with no preparation for even basic ministry. Some or many had never read the Bible but were appointed “pastor” simply because no one was prepared to pastor and they were available because there was no other work they could do. Some could only shout and repeat certain cliches but had no sound doctrines or gospel truth or Bible foundations they could share.

2Cor 3:18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Verses like this was a complete mystery to the average pastor. The truth that only the new creation man is saved or even that there is a new man who is the image of God was a new concept that “apostles, prophets, superintendents and pastors” had never heard. The new birth resulting in a new species of person, called the new man, who was to grow up into the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ was considered very radical or even impossible. The Living and Abiding Word of God [ The Spirit of Christ] living, growing and speaking in man was astounding for them to perceive.

The essential foundations for a New Covenant ministry apparently were never discussed with those who “minister.” Even in the Pentecostal church the word “Holy Spirit” was a term that was little more than a cliche to be repeated often during the meeting. Of course we could only discuss spiritual things with the leadership (Apostle and Overseers) but their level of comprehension was so low that we could only guess at the understanding of the “pastors” they had “prepared” and appointed.

Now it is clear that the “ministry” of books and tapes offered to these ministries who have a “ministry” after the Order of First Adam is only supporting a “ministry” that is never going to be effective in the perfecting of the saints or preparing them to do the work of ministry. It is clear that all the documents I have written will never minister anything to the natural man because he can only understand natural things. Intellectual information and increasing human knowledge will never equip anyone for spiritual ministry. All New Covenant Ministry is limited solely to the development of a New Inner Man who has developed an ascending spiritual Life.

Even if the authors had revelation and had written by inspiration as soon as the book was printed it was just words without the power to change or transform anyone. If the Bible, that was written by revelation and inspiration of the Holy Spirit, can just be preached as “letter that kills” what can we expect from “ministries” that just preach what someone has written in normal books?

2Cor 3:4 Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. 5 Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God, 6 who has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

We wonder what can possibly reverse this ministry of flesh in the pulpit and build up the ministry of the New Covenant by the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation and the inner illumination of the other six Spirits of God. Since ALL Priesthood Ministry BEGINS in the Holy Place it is essential that we focus upon that priority. It seems that getting a few “ministers” into that Holy Place dimension of ministry is the most important thing we can do. Developing “leaders” who can prepare others to enter this Holy Place Life and Ministry appears to be the very first priority of ministry. For that reason we have lost interest in holding large pastors conferences because there is so few that can perceive spiritual things.

Preaching or teaching ANYTHING except the complete Outer Court Foundations now appears to be a big waste of time. The problem is that these foundations are in both the visible and the invisible realms and it is the inner life experiences of the invisible realms that are the preparations for the Priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek. It is these same invisible foundations that are the foundation for the Kingdom and are essential for ministering the Life and Spirit of the Kingdom. Of course anyone can speak ABOUT the Kingdom with natural words. Preaching the Kingdom as Spirit and Life requires the Kingdom reality as an inter Life Government. This demands the integrity, transparency, honesty and character of the Kingdom that was demonstrated by Jesus Christ. The pitiful character of the ones we see preaching the Gospel Kingdom reveals one of the reasons for the ineffective results or even the rejection of the message!

For that reason preaching irrelevant verses about some topic NOT related to establishing these foundations for the Holy Place Life and Ministry seems to be a waste of time. It is obvious that the method of training the believers to do the work of ministry is not practical and neither is it effective. Why? One reason is because this ministry of perfecting the saints is beyond the capacity of the present Outer Court ministries. Having “apostolic ministries” that have not even experienced some or most of the basic Outer Court foundations is a disgrace and they certainly are ignorant of God’s pattern for ministry. Even the “foundational experiences” in the visible realms are lacking in the “Apostolic ministers” we have encountered. Even though the invisible foundations are essential for spiritual ministry not even the first principles have been experienced. The result is VERY carnal “apostles” that are really just undeveloped believers are common in current “leadership we recently saw. We saw carnal “apostles” that were so filled with greed that they could only minister on the level of money. Some were preaching a concept they heard from Miami that the whole Bible is about money.

However, it is these “carnal apostolic ministries” that are standing in the way of the “lesser’ ministries from developing into leaders of the next restoration. It seems clear that the training for the Holy Place Life and Ministry is only available in the Holy Place dimension and not in the Outer Court dimension. This training for the Priesthood Ministry is done solely by our High Priest after the Order of Melchizedek. Therefore, the proper preparation and transformation from the old creation man to the fully developed New Creation Man must take place during the process of experiencing the complete ( both visible and invisible) Outer Court foundations. The preparation of these candidates for a true priesthood function in the real Holy Place ministry is what is seriously lacking in the church today. This IS now essential for the next restoration.

Until the total fall of the first Adam is removed from us and his fallen character is totally eliminated we will need to wait for the transformation into the character of Christ. Until these defects are removed the reality of the spiritual ministry of the Holy Place priesthood will remain a fantasy and a future dream. It appears now that all our effort should be focused upon a few totally consecrated persons that are willing to change to meet the Holy Place requirements for a Priesthood function.

The pioneers of this next restoration will pay a tremendous price because they must find their own way into these invisible dimensions of radical transformation that is necessary. Why? Because only the New Creation Man can function in the Holy Place realm and we must discover God’s methods of fully removing the old creation man and all his defects and corruption so we can fully put on the New Man who after Christ is in the image of God.

The problem is that no leaders seem to be available who can tell us how this is accomplished. Each one of the last six restorations of the visible church by God can help us identify the price of change but none can fully explain the next restoration because this is a totally unknown realm. The degree of perfection and obedience may approach the degree of obedience and perfection that we see in Jesus Christ, our High Priest. The degree of perfection and obedience that is demanded of the Lampstand Churches of Revelation 2 and 3 may be an indication of some of the standards required for the Priesthood Ministry of the next restoration. Since this Priesthood is called to stand before God, minister to Him and burn Incense before we can become His Minister in the next restoration, the standard of perfection is very high. At the present time it seems obvious that the Character and Beauty of the inhabitants of the heavenly Mount Zion is the ultimate Life of the Priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek.

We know from scriptures that the Kingdom of God is made up of a corporate Kingdom of Priests after the Order of Melchizedek. This is very clear! Because of that it seems obvious that many “believers today” will pay the price of obtaining the perfection of Christ. The fact that even those who have authority over the nations of the New Earth will be broken to small pieces may become an indication of the total transformation that is necessary to stand before God and minister to Him. It is certain that this current level of casual and lukewarm Christianity will be eliminated from all the spiritual dimensions and all the lukewarm will be vomited out of any function in the Eternal Government of God.

Rev 2:26 ‘And he who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, TO HIM I WILL GIVE AUTHORITY OVER THE NATIONS; 27 AND HE SHALL RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON, AS THE VESSELS OF THE POTTER ARE BROKEN TO PIECES, as I also have received authority from My Father; 28 and I will give him the morning star.

It is my opinion that the Lampstand Church that He is building must precede the establishment of the full Priesthood Ministries that will function in the Outer Court dimension. Why? Because the five fold ministry is appointed by “He who ascended” or Jesus Christ out of the Holy Place Life, Spirit, Truth and their actual reality of spiritual ministry that meets the standards that God has established for His ministries in the church.

1Cor 12:28 And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues.

Since there is NO church {Lampstand} in the Outer Court Dimension, it seems reasonable that ALL ministry BEGINS in the Holy Place. It is in the Holy Place where He is building His church. All hierarchical type ministries will be in conflict with Christ Jesus in that dimension because He is the only head in His church. It is also clear that God sets the ministries “in the church” and not over it. These ministries are identified as “operations.”

1Co 12:6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which works all in all.

1Co 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

1Co 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

It is clear that the Holy Spirit supplies the proper gifts to each person who is set in each of these diverse ministries so the ministries are effective.

1Co 12:5 And There are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

It seems reasonable that the Lord, Jesus Christ, sets the administrations in the church to bring the saints in the church to perfection. This is what is indicated in Ephesians 4.

Eph 4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that HE might fill all things.) 11 And HE gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

It is clear that the Father, the Son [Lord] and the Holy Spirit are active in establishing the church according to the divine order. It is also clear that carnal ministries have tried to corrupt the divine order by attempting to rearrange the ministries according to their own desires. We see self appointed “apostles” traveling to many places to appoint other “apostles” and attempting to usurp the ministry of Christ Jesus in the assembly of believers. This “ministry” of taking the place of Christ is identified in the Bible as “anti- Christ.” These men seem to have no understanding about the Church Christ is building and have no fear of God and feel free to design their own system of establishing ministries according to their own ideas. Paul, Peter and Jude each encountered these false ministries in their day of ministry so this is one of the manifestation of Adam attempting to function in every age!

2Cor 11:13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their deeds.

Jude 1:10 But these men revile the things which they do not understand; and the things which they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals, by these things they are destroyed. 11 Woe to them! For they have gone the way of Cain, and for pay they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of Korah. 12 These men are those who are hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted;

2Pet 2:1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. 2 And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; 3 and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.

For this very reason it may be necessary to reevaluate and identify what is the real ministry in the real church. Let us consider if the ministries are “set IN the church” or are they set as “a hierarchy over the church.” This will help us identify at least some of the problem. If God has set in the church “first apostles”, does that mean as head of the hierarchy or in the sequence of ministry for the development of the church?

Since there is supposed to be no division in the body, it seems clear, there is no separate ministry over the body or above the body EXCEPT the actual Head of the body. The Priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek is not a divided Priesthood like that of Aaron and his sons and the lower level of ministry by the rest of the Tribe of Levi. This ministry is by a body of Priests after the Order of Melchizedek who function as the body of our High Priest who is HEAD . The complete body of Priests, HEAD and body, is also the Kingdom of Priests who are king / priests in the next world.

Since Jesus MUST become the High Priest before He could carry His own blood into the Most Holy Place in heaven, it appears that He became our High Priest out of the resurrection Life. He died as our Savior but was raised as our High Priest. As Our High Priest He passed through the heavens to offer His own blood and then later to take His seat at the right hand of God. Since God is Infinite Spirit, “the right hand” must be a metaphor that refers to Man Christ Jesus’ new authority as perfected Man.

I am identifying this Priesthood Ministry after the Order of Melchizedek by resurrection because it MUST be after the Power of an Indestructible Life which seems to identify the indestructible nature of the resurrection Life. What does that mean? It means that NO MINISTRY of this order exists EXCEPT out of resurrection Life which eliminates the natural man from priesthood ministry. Therefore, our understanding of “resurrection” may need to be adjusted to include New Covenant ministry of the Spirit. It is this ministry that ministers in the realm of Life, Zoe! This “Life” becomes one of the invisible foundations for the Kingdom and its Priesthood that functions in the invisible realm of the Holy Place.

Heb 7:15 And this is clearer still, if another priest arises according to the likeness of Melchizedek, 16 who has become such not on the basis of a law of physical requirement, but according to the power of an indestructible life.

Obviously, the visible church is VERY far from qualifying for this kind of elevated Life and Ministry! The reason is simply because the “ministries” are not qualified to minister to the church any truth above basic and shallow doctrines about forgiveness of sins and Bible verses.

The next level of perfecting the saints will require a much higher level of ministry than we see anywhere today. To prepare these future Ministries today that can lead the saints into the next restoration is the highest priority we can see today. All this regular ministry we see toady is nearly worthless to accomplish this necessary result of perfecting the saints for the next restoration of ministry. We have discovered that most “ministries” are satisfied with the status quo and that they are convinced they are successfully doing the will of God. They see no reason to change anything. Only the real Kingdom message will convince those who are not already comatose.
