#492 – The Consecration of the Priests – Part 10
The Kingdom Realm Demands Consecration
The Government And The Expectation Of Its Personal Reality!
The Laws of God And the New Inner Man (Born of God)
Luke 7:28 “I say to you, among those born of women, there is no one greater than John; yet he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.”
There are only two kinds of men / persons existing on the earth today.
(1) Those who have been born of woman
(2) those who have been born of God.
Those who have been born of woman were conceived by human sperma and were birthed from the womb of a woman. These are natural, human people born into the earth dimension.
Those who were born of God were conceived by the eternal sperma of God Almighty in the body of humans but in that invisible realm of another and separate creation existing parallel to the earth dimension.
John the Baptist was a “man born of woman” exactly like any other person born into the earth dimension. His father was Zechariah and his mother was Elizabeth. John had reached the highest level of his potential as a “man born of woman.” There may have been many other persons from other time periods that had reached their highest potential as “man born of woman” but none exceeded John in reaching their full potential and fulfilling God’s predestined plan. We also have the testimony of Enoch and many others.
Of the “man born of woman” category some have reached extraordinary levels of accomplishments in science, medicine, astronomy, design and philosophy. Even the exploration of space is extraordinary achievement. Still, of all these advancements none has surpassed John in his existence as “man born of woman.” The testimony of John is recorded in scripture and his testimony has become scripture. Jesus’ own testimony of John is that there is none greater than John. However, the least in the Kingdom is greater than John. Why is that? Because they are of the next group who are “born of God.”
The “first born” of this next group of those who have been born of God is Jesus, the Christ of God. His earthly mother and the womb from which He was born is Mary. She was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit and she received the sperma of God, Almighty and Jesus was conceived. That Divine Sperma is called the “Living and Abiding Word of God” that IS God. In this Divine Sperma is Life and this Life is the Light of men. As many as receive this Divine Sperma have the potential to become the “Sons of God.”
The testimony of Jesus, the Christ of God, is firmly recorded in Scripture and has become scripture. I will list a few scriptures that reflect the Testimony of Jesus, the Christ of God and the Living Word of God that was made visible in human form! Jesus came to His full potential as a “man born of God.” That means conceived and born by the Divine Sperma of God through the work of the Holy Spirit. This is His Testimony!
Heb 1:1 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. 3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high; 4 having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they. 5 For to which of the angels did He ever say, “THOU ART MY SON, TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN THEE”? And again, “I WILL BE A FATHER TO HIM AND HE SHALL BE A SON TO ME”? 6 And when He again brings the first-born into the world, He says, “AND LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM.”
Col 1:15 And He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created by Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18 He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything. 19 For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fulness to dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven.
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-- 2 and the life was manifested, and we have seen and bear witness and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us--
Eph 1:18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might 20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in the one to come. 22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fulness of Him who fills all in all.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
It should be abundantly clear that from God’s viewpoint there is absolutely no difference in these scriptures between Jesus Christ and the Living and Abiding Word of God which is God and was with God in the beginning before anything visible was created. In eternity TIME is irrelevant. Even though there may have been thousands of earth years between all the elements of this testimony, from God’s viewpoint they are all of the same dimension. The Eternal Word of God obviously existed irrespective of time but Jesus was born into the Time Dimension. However, He was born of the Divine Sperma, the Living and Abiding Word of God, and instantly became a part of the Eternal Dimension. Why? He was born from that dimension.
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.
Everyone who has been “Born of God” by the same Divine Sperma has passed into that eternal dimension. Even though our body exists in the time dimension our New Creation Inner Man is part of the Eternal Dimension. Why? Because, we were born from that dimension and born into that dimension.
Even though the old earth man never comes to his full potential as “man born of woman” there is no reason that the New Man who has been “Born of God” should not come to his full potential in this eternal dimension. In fact, we will ask the question that many seem to dread; IS THAT EVEN AN OPTION? Since EVERY real Christian MUST have been “Born of God” growing up into our full potential “in Christ” is NO LONGER an option. Why? Because now the scriptures MUST be fulfilled by the Church He is Building!
Even a casual reading of a few scriptures should convince us that all these “grace options” that the visible church preaches are just man centered excuses that are totally ignoring God’s Absolute Government and His Sovereign Rule over all created things. Can you imagine a Kingdom where everybody just does what they please, whenever they please and the Father smiles because He loves His children so very much. It is assumed that anarchy is accepted in the Kingdom of Love because the Kingdom is all harmony and unity so all kinds of abominations are approved by God’s unmerited grace. The “Super Grace” concept has caused the assemblies to forsake the only true God and turn to an ingenuous and permissive gospel with strange doctrines that leads thousands of believers into an eternal loss through a casual lifestyle.
It is assumed “because of the gospel of grace” that apathy is a Christian virtue and that lukewarmness is just experiential Christian humility. Some assume that casual Christianity is just expressing their faith by rejecting all works and resting in God!
Since “eternity” has been judged by some according to the doctrine in the gospel songs where heaven is a glorious place of rest and relaxation and its vacation time all over heaven, we have lost track of the Kingdom Government of God as another “Christian Absolute.” The “gospel songs” imply that all we will do in heaven is just sing and praise God all the time. This, of course, is all part of the fantasy where we just walk up and shake hands with Jesus and thank Him for dying for us. In that theoretical heaven there is no danger of falling like a dead man in His Presence or being singed by the fire in His eyes or being incinerated by His feet that are burning like burnished bronze. If the song writers would just read the scriptures and write songs accordingly no one would want to sing them. The fact is that God’s Presence is a terrible place. He dwells in the midst of everlasting burnings because Our God is a consuming fire.
Isa 33:14 Sinners in Zion are terrified; Trembling has seized the godless. “Who among us can live with the consuming fire? Who among us can live with continual burning?” 15 He who walks righteously, and speaks with sincerity, He who rejects unjust gain, And shakes his hands so that they hold no bribe; He who stops his ears from hearing about bloodshed, And shuts his eyes from looking upon evil; 16 He will dwell on the heights; His refuge will be the impregnable rock; His bread will be given him; His water will be sure. 17 Your eyes will see the King in His beauty; They will behold a far-distant land.
In the Gospel of the Kingdom you either conform and obey or you are disqualified. Even the “believers” in the Lampstand Church that became lukewarm are vomited out of His body. Why? That attitude, and casual life style is not acceptable in the Kingdom of God. In the Kingdom EVERYBODY does the perfect will of God and anyone who does not want to live that way is cast out. This Eternal Government that is ruling the universe is determining and enforcing the predestined plan of God. The nature of the Kingdom is the essential nature of Christ, the living Word of God! The Kingdom of Heaven is NOT about singing and being on an eternal holiday. Why?
Heb 2:5 For He did not subject to angels the world to come, concerning which we are speaking. 6 But one has testified somewhere, saying, “WHAT IS MAN, THAT THOU REMEMBEREST HIM? OR THE SON OF MAN, THAT THOU ART CONCERNED ABOUT HIM?
If we ignore the fact that there will be a world AFTER this one and that man will have rulership or dominion over that world then it seems reasonable that man must be prepared for that responsibility. The ignorant can still create a fantasy heaven where everyone is on an eternal vacation and the inhabitant’s activities will be to just sing songs, enter into rest and praise God forever. If that is all eternity is about then the consecration offering and doing the will of God in this life would be irrelevant except for the “rewards” they say that will be given to everybody who believes! Your character, attitudes, integrity, obedience and spiritual growth would be irrelevant in the heaven of man’s imagination.
However, when we relate eternity to an Eternal Government and a Kingdom where the Priests are functioning as the Government upon the New Earth and in New Heaven, heaven begins to look quite different from the doctrine of heaven that is being preached. Christ Jesus is the ultimate King/ Priest who has been given all the Absolute Authority over all the works of God’s creative hands. He has dealt decisively with God’s enemies by His obedience at Calvary and He IS now ruling until every enemy is put under His feet. (Which are in His body)
Psalm 8:2 From the mouth of infants and nursing babes Thou hast established strength, Because of Thine adversaries, To make the enemy and the revengeful cease.
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. 23 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, 24 then comes the end, when He delivers up the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be abolished is death. 27 For HE HAS PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDER HIS FEET. But when He says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is evident that He is excepted who put all things in subjection to Him. 28 And when all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, that God may be all in all.
God has raised up “A MAN”, Christ Jesus, who walked in total obedience to the Father and completely defeated Satan and made an open show of him. Christ Jesus now has all authority in both heaven and earth. He is ruling now and will continue to rule until EVERY other enemy is put under His feet which means His body. After He has abolished all rule and all authority and power, the MAN, CHRIST JESUS, will subject himself to the Almighty God so that GOD may be all in all.
This is what is happening now in heaven and also on earth. The Man, Christ Jesus, is ruling. Why? Not all God’s adversaries, meaning the enemies and the revengeful, have ceased their activities upon the earth. Satan has been defeated and judged but thousands of angels and rebellious persons are still functioning on the earth, uninhibited. For that reason the full Kingdom Government of God cannot be established until EVERY enemy is fully defeated, judged and is put under His feet. The Kingdom NOW is called the “Kingdom of His dear Son.” However, when EVERY enemy is defeated and judged, the Son will then fully surrender His government to the Eternal God so that the Kingdom of God will be the only Government over the entire universe.
But, brother, the Kingdom you preach seems to be very legalistic and puts demands upon us that we are not able to bear. If you are a “person born of woman” that is surely true. Your highest potential is that of John the Baptist. He, of course, could announce the Kingdom has come. However, if you have been “Born of God” your highest potential is to be like the Lord Jesus Christ. Of course we can never be the Savior of mankind but we can certainly rise to the potential inherent in the Divine Sperma, the Living and Abiding Word of God.
Those who can qualify, (by their obedience), to judge the angels, (for their disobedience), will take up their place in the eternal Government and be part of that Kingdom of God. This is an active Government that is functioning over both heaven and earth and over all the works of God’s hands. Therefore, there will be very much to do. Only those who have proven their obedience, integrity and character in this life will qualify to rule in that dimension. Since the Government of God is so huge, there will be a great diversity of assigned work and at many different levels and realms depending upon our level of Kingdom character, integrity and the degree we have been conformed to the image of Christ Jesus, the Living Word of God!
Dan 7:13 “I kept looking in the night visions, And behold, with the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, And He came up to the Ancient of Days And was presented before Him. 14 “And to Him was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom, That all the peoples, nations, and men of every language Might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion Which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one Which will not be destroyed.
Daniel 7:26 ‘But the court will sit for judgment, and his dominion will be taken away, annihilated and destroyed forever. 27 ‘Then the sovereignty, the dominion, and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.’
It is for this Eternal Reason that the Kingdom Demands Consecration
The “Super Grace” groups are quick to point out that all God’s children are Priests and all believers will participate in the Kingdom of God and rule and reign with Jesus. That, of course, is a lie because if EVERYBODY ruled who would they rule over? The answer they give is the unsaved and the Jews. If we just think a little it will be clear how ignorant that is.
A small revelation of the Tabernacle of God and the Eternal Kingdom of God will clarify why the Full Consecration Offering is NOT another Christian option. The ignorant assure us “If you want to consecrate it might bring you some extra rewards but this is not necessary because we are ‘saved by faith.’ Also you will just have to cast your rewards at Jesus feet any way.”
It is NOT that the basic forgiveness of sins is not effective to keep us out of hell but the Gospel we have been assigned to declare is NOT the gospel of hell but the Gospel of the Kingdom. While it is true that multitudes will be “saved” it is also true that only those who do the will of God can enter the Kingdom of God.
“Well, brother, I would do the will of God IF HE SHOWED ME what that meant but I am not hearing anything so I must be doing His will already! Therefore, I am free from guilt so don’t try to bring me into that bondage of works!”
This is exactly the attitude that we are addressing in these studies! This is why we are sharing on the Consecration Offering as an absolute because it is obvious that those who remain in the Outer Court dimension are NOT hearing His voice regardless of how they testify about what God said to them. The failure is not in God’s grace but in the one who is attempting to hear His Voice! The “man born of woman” is not of the realm in which God is speaking today. He is speaking in the realm of those who are “Born of God.”
It is not that the scriptures are ambiguous, not clear or that these issues remain in the abstract or are irrelevant. No! We have, each one of us, been predestined according to His Eternal Purpose. He saved us and CALLED us according to that predestined purpose.
“SAVING US” or being “Born of God” precedes being called according to His purpose. Even though we are now living in the period of the New Covenant, this Eternal Purpose was determined before the earth was restored in Genesis one and is non-negotiable. The fact that we have been predestined to God’s eternal purpose is another of the Bible Absolutes! There is NO option here! Nevertheless, it is the New Man who is predestined.
Rom 8:29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the first-born among many brethren; 30 and whom He predestined, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
2Tim 1:9 who has saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity,
The basic questions for every Christian revolves around these few things as the beginning of their experiential Christian Life.
(1) Why has He Called Me into His predestined Plan?
(2) How Can I fulfill God’s Plan for my life?
(3) How has God prepared me to function in the realms of eternal my calling?
(4) When will God be satisfied with my fulfillment of His Predestined Plan?
After we determine these things personally there will be hundreds of peripheral things and experiences that will advance us in his exact calling. At the present time all these things seem so arbitrary, mystical and illusive that they appear to be irrelevant in the present time period. Nevertheless, if God has predestined us according to His Eternal Purpose it seems prudent to evaluate our experience in relation to that purpose and to at least wonder if we are fulfilling His purpose. Just ask yourself; Does “grace” really eliminate all our responsibility to fulfill God’s Predestined Purpose? In some groups “predestination” is considered to be a deceptive doctrine and a stumbling block to “salvation” by grace! Some Bible believers are even so bold to say that just to meditate upon this question of our personal responsibility before God is evidence of our lack of faith. To question if God is satisfied with your life is condemned and considered as a proof of your lack of faith in Jesus Christ, in Calvary and in His shed blood.
As we study the history of the church over the last 2,000 years it is clear that certain persons were called into some specific existence or calling or purpose and they fulfilled that visibly. To what degree we don’t know but we see John the Baptist as one Bible example. We can’t help but wonder about the other thousands that were also called to a specific function but never responded. Of course we don’t see these persons listed in the history of the church but it would be amazing if they were included. The Church History books would be complete libraries with hundreds of books that would be required to list each “Christian” person that never bothered about God’s will, God’s call or His eternal plan.
Some would say “But I never knew about any plan of God!” “I never heard about that in my church.” “I was told that God’s Grace covers everything and nothing is required of me except to believe in Jesus.”
A few believers will testify to their call and speculate about what God showed them about His will. However, they never took the initiative to get prepared and never surrendered to God’s Predestined Plan so they will suffer eternal loss. How can anyone be so ignorant to think these losers can be included in God’s Eternal Kingdom Government? Many who site God’s Grace as an excuse to not change or to do nothing never attempted to use His abundant grace to get prepared or to consecrate their Life to actually do God’s will. This lack of overcoming might be the result of this “perverted doctrine grace” that removes any responsibility from man. This “doctrine” has become a stumbling block to hundreds that could be doing God’s will and fulfilling His eternal purpose if they were informed about their responsibility. Multitudes just don’t know that this is NOT another Christian option but a spurious doctrine created by people who should know better!
Mat 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. 22 “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’
Doing “our chosen ministry” but NOT actually doing God’s will is called “lawlessness” and is totally unacceptable in the Kingdom. Doing “our ministry” outside of our calling and His predestined plan is not looked upon favorably in the Kingdom dimension. Why? The Kingdom embraces God’s Absolute Sovereignty. “Grace” will not be accepted as an excuse to ignore God’s Predestined Plan! Then what is the real problem?
Always learning but NEVER coming to a functioning “GOD CONSCIOUSNESS.”
Living in a “God Consciousness” is essential just to discover God’s Will and His Predestined Plan. How can we actually surrender to God’s discipline and correction if we are NOT “God Conscious?” How will the Kingdom Government of God become real to us if we are not, at least, “God Conscious.”
If we have been “born again”, “born of the water” and “born of the Spirit” or “Born of God” we should be living in a “God Consciousness.” If we are NOT living in a “God Consciousness” we will see no reason or value in making a full Consecration Offering. I am speculating that becoming “God Conscious” is primary to being “birthed into Zion.” Why? Because “Zion” is where we experience the manifested Presence of God. Living in Zion and being “God Conscious” is one and the same thing. For example; Can you imagine David sitting before the Ark of the Covenant, in the Tabernacle of David which is on Zion, singing to Him who dwells between the Cherubim without being conscious of God. When David wrote Psalms it is clear that he was “God Conscious?” Is it even possible to be a “casual, lukewarm and a hypocritical Christian” and still be living in a living consciousness of God.? Of Course Not!
Too much of the visible church are just puppets mouthing platitudes and cliches that have no personal or experiential reality in their life. Many song services fit into that category because it is just music for the natural man and a rhythm to which he can relate.
Was it obvious that Enoch was aware that he pleased God? We don’t know very much about Enoch but it appears that he fulfilled some distinctive purpose that pleased God. This is a clear Bible example but could it just be another story to fill up the pages of the Bible or is there a personal application to my life. If this is presented as normal for the Christian Life, why are not more Christians experiencing this level of God Consciousness?
I will give a little personal example to show my own failure in this realm of the Kingdom Consciousness. Many of us try to sense God’s Manifested Presence (to be God Conscious) through the soul or body of the natural man. If we fully understood how God designed man to become God Conscious it will help us adjust our own experience. There is no question that Adam and Eve were created to be God conscious. This was part of God’s design for them and it became a reality in their experience. However, after their fall from the garden dimension, little by little they lost this God consciousness. They were banned from that Garden Realm of God’s manifest Presence!
Those of us who still live in the “post garden experience,” “born of woman,” still have the ability to appreciate eternal things and to be grateful to God and to testify of God’s grace and His unmerited favor upon us. We have the inherent ability to ponder our origin and to bless the Lord. We can even duplicate the worship and enthusiasm of the Old Testament saints who expressed their appreciation through the old natural man. Since they were not born again in the New Covenant sense they had certain limitations. John the Baptist was of the last of that group. Still, Jesus said the least in the Kingdom of God is greater than John. The New Covenant experience must lift us to a much higher realm of existence than John. Just because there is now the New Covenant does NOT mean that ever believer is actually living in the full provision or in that higher realm of existence.
Therefore, if our Christian experience and ability is just in the realm of the original soul, the body or the estranged spirit of man ( born of woman) we will be severely limited in our Christian Life! In the natural man, that built-in- mechanism that permitted man to become God Conscious slowly faded away, but the remnant of these human faculties remained. However, these are not sufficient to satisfy man or God concerning doing God’s will, hearing and knowing God’s voice, or fulfilling God’s predestined plan. Still, these estranged faculties may keep us from manifesting some brute characteristic or insensitive personality. When these evil forces are within the control of the individual some will call that Christian conversion and these are welcomed into the assembly.
However, this can only be categorized as “post garden syndrome” and not real conversion! Only those who are “Born of God” can truly claim to be converted. This is the reason that God must begin the New Covenant and the Christian Life with a brand new creation. God has NOT designed the new creation to function with the old soul or the estranged spirit of the natural man. God’s design requires a death and burial of everything connected to the old creation and the “post garden man” (born of woman) who is still connected to first Adam. The New Creation of the New Earth, the New Heaven and the New Jerusalem, following the Millennial reign of Christ Jesus, requires a New Adam and a New Eve. The New/ Last Adam is called Jesus Christ who becomes the first born of the New Creation species.
It is for that reason that we have emphasized and over emphasized that EVERY real Christian MUST be born again by the Living and Abiding Word of God. Why? Because EVERYTHING about the Christian Life revolves around the New Creation which is actually NEW! Seeking God or His Kingdom from out of the Old Creation (born of woman) is a big waste of time and effort because God’s design for the whole Kingdom / Christian realm requires a new inner man. It is for that reason that using the former soul faculties of mind, will and emotions is so disappointing in helping us become “God Conscious.” “God Consciousness” is tied to the New Inner Man.
It is the New Inner Man that has a brand new set of “built-ins” (a whole new spiritual mechanism) by which we live and demonstrate the Christian Life. It is ONLY with the New Faculties that we can “know God” in the new Covenant dimension. It is ONLY with the New Faculties that we can function in the Kingdom Realm of God’s Sovereign Government. It is only in this New Covenant realm of the New Inner Man that we can know if we are satisfying God’s call or fulfilling His Eternal and Predestined Purpose!
Therefore, if you feel the frustration of not being able to touch this realm I would encourage you to forsake the old faculties of the soul by trying to use the mind, will and emotions of the natural, (born of woman) outward man. I am guessing that will never produce your desired result because it never has helped me. Even though Watchman Nee wrote many articles on seeking God with the body, soul and spirit through the mind, will and emotions it never helped me. Why is that? Because it is fruitless but common experience to try to contact God with the fallen faculties of the first Adam and totally neglect the new faculties of the New Creation and the New inner Man functioning in the Last Adam realm of the Living and Abiding Word of God. It is my opinion that this is the only realm where we become “God Conscious.” In the Tabernacle graphic this is experienced in the Holy Place Realm.
It is for that reason that we are insisting that limiting your ministry to those who prefer the activity in the Outer Court realm to a more sensitive and demanding experience of the Holy Place Realm is so unsatisfying and a certain disappointment. Unless we can experience the Holy Place Realm ourselves and then help others escape the natural realms of spiritual preparation we will never sense that ultimate satisfaction. I have a kind of inner understanding that God is not satisfied with just having an Outer Court Assembly (born of woman) who is stagnant in their growth and advancement in the “Born of God” realms. Of course that could just be my personal evaluation and an expression of how I feel personally about my own experience. I am personally NOT SATISFIED with where I am after 41 years of trying to press into something real and eternal. When I write about living in a “God Consciousness” I am NOT testifying to my own experience; but just to a vision of something that is or should be available to a New Covenant believer. When I write about functioning in a Priesthood ministry I am NOT testifying to my own experience but just to what I see in the scriptures as part of God’s plan and which is available to us. Since I know that EVERYBODY who has been “Born Again though the Living and Abiding Word of God” has the potential to become “God Conscious”, have a sense that we are pleasing to God and can have a built in assurance that we can fulfill God’s Predestined Plan and take our place in God’s eternal Government, I will continue to press on and challenge others to do the same.
