The Eternal Christ, The Eternal Word, Eternal Salvation

The Eternal Son, The Eternal God,

The Prototype Son, The Son Of God,

The Son of Man – The Man, Christ Jesus.

March 10, 2014

Each one of these "names" define some reality in the eternal realms about Jesus, the Christ of God.

Sorting out these "terms" and identifying the reality of each term as it applies to the eternal realms and the Eternal Purpose of God will require some depth of understanding derived from Scripture.

It will be necessary to receive some revelation that exists behind and within the scriptural evidence.

Not all things relevant to the invisible dimensions are open to natural understanding.

However, we soon discover that what we thought was "true scriptural evidence" was just "Church tradition" that is not supported by the Scriptures.

For example; this error that Jesus is God!

Some even say that Jesus was with God before the world was.

In other words; the Pre-existence of Jesus.

As we travel and share in various places we suspect there is some confusion over Jesus, the Christ of God, and the Eternal Christ, Who is the Living and revealed Word of God.

This Eternal Word IS God.

The Eternal Word of God is also the Eternal Spirit of Christ.

Our thesis will be that the Spirit of Christ existed from all eternity past and is the Living and Abiding Word of God.

This "WORD" was with God in the beginning and this "WORD" (Logos) is Almighty God.

Our point will also insist that Jesus was born about 2000 years ago in the Middle East.

Is there any question that Jesus is Christ? None at all.

The Scriptures confirm this reality over and over.

Is there any question that Jesus Christ has died for our sins as God's substitutionary sacrifice on Calvary?

Absolutely none at all.

This is confirmed many times in Scripture and fulfills several prophesies about this fact.

Our concern is not IF Jesus is the Christ of God but was Jesus with God before the world was?

If Jesus was born about 2000 years ago, was He this same Jesus that it is assumed and is often preached that He was with the Father before the world was.

Was it this "Man, Christ Jesus" Who existed before Abraham was?

Was it this same Jesus that had the glory of God from all eternity past?

Was He the perfect man when He was born or was He perfected through the things which He suffered.

Is this Jesus the Almighty God that came to dwell among us?

Was the Eternal Christ the Living and Abiding Word of God that came as Sperma and was made flesh in Jesus?

Was Jesus the Almighty God walking around as man?

Multiple questions revolve around this "Son of Man," Who IS the "Son of God" Whose mother was the Virgin Mary.

Did the "man Christ Jesus" suddenly appear in Bethlehem or was He born of a woman as a baby in swaddling clothes.

Did this Eternal One become 12 years old and begin to ask pertinent questions in the synagogue?

Of course, He is the Man, Christ Jesus! All this is confirmed by Scripture.

1Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one Mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 Who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony borne at the proper time.

Was Jesus Christ an authentic man like every man or was He different because He was born of God?

Was He human or was He some heavenly apparition that appeared as a man?

Does this same Jesus now have the name "The Word of God" written upon Him?

Is He then the authentic Word of God?

Yes, He certainly is!

Is He also an authentic Man?

Yes, He certainly is a genuine man!

This is confirmed many times in the Scriptures.

Was He tempted in all the same things as we?

Yes, that is confirmed by Scripture.

Is there some Divine reason for all these various names, births, death, resurrection, ruling in His Kingdom which will, one day, be joined to the Father's Kingdom?

Who, really, is Jesus Christ?

Our thesis will be that all these things are revealed in Scripture and have been available to the reader of the Bible, in many languages, since the 1400's.

Gaining an understanding of these "mysteries" will require that we begin our search BEFORE the world was.

We might expect this to be a long study but these thoughts must be carefully arranged and proven.

Therefore, in order to put this dilemma into some eternal perspective we must begin with the Purpose in the heart of God when He created Adam.

If we examine the period during this creation we will recognize there was a world before this one.

That creation failed to bring in God's final Purpose and was destroyed.

God created Adam because God still had an Eternal Purpose for man to complete upon this earth.

Man was designed to fulfill God's full desire within the earth realm now and to populate the world yet to come during all future eternity.

To bring His desire to completion, God needed another created being different from the angels. Why?

Satan and multitudes of angels who had dominion over the world before this one, lost their position and destroyed their land.

This fact is a key issue in understanding everything that has taken place since Genesis 1:2.

For that reason we will clarify these things very carefully.

God didn't need more angels to fulfill His Purpose because they had already failed to bring in the Purpose of God.

One third of the angels rebelled against God.

These angels had dominion over the former earth which existed before this one in the ancient past.

Eze 28:14 "You were the anointed cherub who covers, and I placed you there. YOU were on the holy mountain of God; you walked in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 "you were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, until unrighteousness was found in you. 16 "By the abundance of your trade you were internally filled with violence, And you sinned; Therefore I have cast you as profane from the mountain of God. And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 "Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I put you before kings, that they may see you.

Isa 14:18 "All the kings of the nations lie in glory, Each in his own tomb. 19 "But you have been cast out of your tomb like a rejected branch, Clothed with the slain who are pierced with a sword, who go down to the stones of the pit, Like a trampled corpse.

20 "You will not be united with them in burial, Because you have ruined your country, you have slain your people. May the offspring of evildoers not be mentioned forever.

Satan and the angels were in authority over the former earth and over everything that inhabited the earth at that time.

They rebelled against God and caused the destruction of everything on the earth, they ruined their country.

All living things were slain and died in the disaster when the earth was submerged in water for thousands of years.

God destroyed that former world because it became so corrupt that God sunk the earth in water. Everything that was in that creation perished.

However, God's Eternal Purpose never changed.

For that reason the earth was restored out of the water and God began a new creation on the former earth. For that reason God began a process of restoring the earth to complete His original Purpose.

That is the creation we read about in Genesis one.

This time, however, God began with a created being much, much lower than the angels.

That is with a man made of dirt. Why?

So this new and different creation "person" could come to the:

  • maturity,

  • obedience,

  • faithfulness,

  • character and

  • stature

necessary to fulfill what the angels failed to fulfill.

When man completes the Purpose of God through his obedience and perfection, he will then be qualified to judge the angels that rebelled against God and by their rebellion and disobedience destroyed their domain, the world before this one.

When man's obedience is fulfilled God can then judge all disobedience through that man.

If man's disobedience, character, attitude and arrogance advances no farther than the fallen angels, how will that man ever be qualified to judge the angels?

1Cor 6:3 Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, matters of this life?

In order to prepare an inhabitable place for this new creation man to exist, God then restored the earth out of the water into which it sank.

The earth apparently existed as dry ground long before the ancient earth was destroyed by water.

Various things from that creation are found yet today by archaeologists.

Even ancient cities and cut stones are still found that are VERY old and much older than the 6000 years since Genesis 1:2.

2Pet 3:5 For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the Word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water,

6 through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water.

7 But the present heavens and earth by His Word are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

It is obvious that this "destruction" was not explaining anything about the flood in Noah's time but is referring to the destruction of the former earth following Satan and the angel's rebellion.

In Genesis 1;1 the earth was formless and void of everything.

It had been destroyed by water in the very distant past, maybe eons of years before this time.

Now, God was going to restore the earth back to dry ground for this new Adam creation to live and function in God's will and purpose.

Therefore, in Genesis 1:2 God is going to restore the former earth for His new creation man, the first Adam.

For that reason, He separated the waters above from the waters below and the earth became dry ground like it was before.

Then God made the former earth, which was destroyed, into an inhabitable place once again.

Since God was going to judge the angels through this new creation man, He made the earth comparable to what it was before and not some super creation that had an advantage over the earth when Angels were in charge. Why?

Because of God's Absolute righteousness, He required one created being (Adam) to judge the other created beings (the angels).

However, this new created being (Adam) was just formed out of dirt.

That is so much lower than the angels were created but God knew if He could bring this created "man" to perfection he would be qualified to judge the angels.

Our "perfection" is directly related to judging theses fallen angels.

When the earth was ready for the new "experiment" to begin, God created man out of the dirt of the ground or the lowest and most common element found on earth.

However, if this "experiment" succeeds and Adam is obedient and fulfills God's Purpose, the angels that fell will be judged by this new "imposter" man called Adam.

Now the angels and Satan must take action immediately or their judgment will come swiftly.

Therefore, something must be done very quickly and decisively.

They must deceive this "new creation man" into rebellion against God so that this "man" is no more obedient than the angels were when they ruled over the former earth.

If they could succeed in deceiving this man they would be spared from the judgment of God until later.

However, God will not give up His plan until ALL is fulfilled and for that reason He created man to become fully equipped to judge the created but fallen angels.

Of course we know the first Adam failed so the angels were safe from judgment and are still here.

Even the demons, the spirits without bodies, who were from that former earth, were loosed upon earth again when the earth became dry ground.

Since there was always a Kingdom in Heaven, obedience to God was not an option.

However, since there was no Law in Heaven that the angels broke, there was no righteous way for God to judge the angels that fell.

Therefore, God must raise up another species of "created of beings" who will inhabit this earth under very similar circumstance as the angels.

If they will be obedient and fulfill God's Eternal Purpose they will sit as God's righteous court to judge the angels.

This new species, by their obedience, will be will be able to judge the angels for their disobedience

Now, in this dispensation since Genesis 1:2, God must produce a "Man" Who was created lower than the angels but one that will come to that same perfection that was demanded of the angels.

This "Man" must exist with the same free will and with the same temptation as the angels.

If He succeeds and His "obedience is fulfilled" while living in the same conditions as the angels that fell, this "Man" will then be able to "judge all disobedience."

However, the first Adam failed by his disobedience and was disqualified.

For that reason God must raise up ANOTHER ADAM and begin a whole new species of beings. Why?

That is because God's Eternal Purpose MUST be fulfilled.

This Last Adam could NOT be made any higher than the angels or the test would not be "righteous."

Therefore, He was made even lower than the angels so there could be no justification or complaint by the angels for their failure.

It was for that reason that the Word became flesh, was born of a woman, the Virgin Mary, was born of God and started a new species by taking on the body of a man.



For in subjecting all things to him, He left nothing that is not subject to him.

But now we do not yet see all things subjected to him.

Heb 2:9 But we do see Him Who has been made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that by the Grace of God He might taste death for everyone. 10 For it was fitting for Him, for Whom are all things, and through Whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the Author of their salvation through sufferings.

The first man, Adam, was given his own free will to fulfill his obedience but failed to fulfill his calling.

Therefore, God will begin again and formed another Adam but this will be the Last Adam.

However, instead of forming Him in the genealogy of first Adam, from the dust of the earth, and procreated with perishable sperma, God will birth Him with God's own incorruptible Sperma.

This will birth the Second Man in total innocence Who must be the very last Adam of the former race of men.

For that reason He was born from a woman and became the Man, Christ Jesus.

He must not fail to bring in the Purpose of God.

Now He is the last Adam of the former species but First Adam of this new species of man that is born of God!

This will begin a whole new creation, totally innocent, a new Genesis, with a new species of man!

Nevertheless, He must be tested in His obedience in every way as the first Adam but without sin. Why?

That is because He will judge ALL of mankind of that species of men, plus Satan and the angels and the inhabitants of that former earth, the demons.

For that reason, this "Last Adam" must be truly an authentic man and be tested in every way while in this same earth dimension.

He must be tested in every way just as the first Adam AND just as the angels and He must be found faithful.

In order to shut every mouth, God will make Him even lower than the angels, Who are mightier and wiser than man.

If this new Man is successful and can fulfill the Will of God through His obedience, He will be qualified to judge the angels for their disobedience.

The Good News is that Jesus completed this portion of God's Purpose and made Himself to be the "free will Offering."

No one took His Life from Him but He willingly laid it down.

He fulfilled each of the sacrifices and offerings in the Law of Moses.

This will become a full testimony to the Old Covenant saints by the One Who has fulfilled the Law of commandments.

If this Last Adam (the Second Man) succeeds and fulfills the Purpose of God, He will be qualified to receive authority over both heaven and earth and be qualified to full judge Satan.

Then, as the Last Adam, He must then be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth with a completely new race (species) of men who will grow and mature to become just like Him.

It is these heirs of the New Covenant experience who must become a corporate group of an entirely new species of men and be called "the Church."

It is the "church" that must:

  • continue to hear His voice,

  • keep His Covenant,

  • be obedient, and

  • do His Will.

Jesus is qualified to fully judge Satan but now the saints must be qualified by their obedience to fully judge the angels.

After their initial preparation as Christians, each redeemed person must consecrate themselves to:

  • fulfill God's Will,

  • walk in obedience and

  • complete His Purpose.

To accomplish that they must no longer live just for themselves.

Their full consecration must be to do the whole Will of the Father, whatever that requires and wherever that takes them.

These, that walk in this obedience, will become the manifested Sons of God.

All these who do the Will of God will be accepted into the family of God and also become participants in the Kingdom of God.

They will become that Kingdom of Priests who will rule over the world yet to come.

These are the "many sons He will bring to Glory."

When God's Messiah was born, the great problem was that the earth was already filled with this fallen species of men who were living in sin and in rebellion against God.

They were the species of men after the first Adam and had multiplied here upon this earth.

This fallen species of men must first be redeemed before this salvation process could begin.

They must first be forgiven of their sins and then God must do His fullest and perfect work in this fallen species of men (after first Adam) to enable man to actually live in obedience and complete God's Eternal Purpose.

It is certain that God cannot and will not use the race of the first Adam.

This race already had thousands of years of history behind them but none of that species of men succeeded in coming to the required perfection.

None of that species were able to complete the Purpose of God or be qualified to judge the angels.

Therefore, God determined to form an entirely new and different species of men on the earth who would fully consecrate themselves to do His Will and to complete the purpose of God for this restored earth.

By their obedience to the Will of God they would be qualified to judge the angels who refused the will of God.

By their:

  • obedience,

  • development and

  • growth into the full measure of the stature of Jesus Christ

they will be qualified to then rule over the world yet to come.

To qualify for that they must fully embrace the Kingdom Government of God as their personal experience.

It seems obvious that God fully expects to raise up a corporate group of people who will do just that!

Still, to mix the old creation, first Adam, with the new creation, the Last Adam, as a mixture of the two, would certainly lead to another disappointment and failure.

For that reason God must provide a genuine death to the first Adam and an effective and authentic burial of all he has become.

God will not permit a mixture these two creations.

God must provide for the separation of the new creation man and His species from the old creation man and his species.

Even in the Law, God forbade the mixing of two different species.

Lev 19:19 'You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together.

The old creation man must die and be buried to bring his influence and failure to a conclusion.

This is the meaning and purpose of Water Baptism.

A completely new man, that has NO HISTORY of sin or failure, must emerge with resurrection Life.

Christianity cannot be associated with the first Adam, his species or with his genealogy.

The Glorious Church is first Adam free!

The defining of the qualities and the functioning reality of this new species is that they are ONLY after the order of the Last Adam.

In other words, the Christian must manifest the uncreated Life of God that has passed through death and has risen in resurrection.

If this has not happened, it CANNOT qualify as the new species that must fulfill the Eternal Purpose of God.

Consequently, if it CANNOT qualify as being a genuine new and different creation, it certainly cannot qualify as being Christian.

Defining Christianity from the viewpoint of the Kingdom and God's Eternal Purpose and establishing Christianity as that which will judge the fallen angels, alters the general concepts of "church."

Then when we add "to rule over the world yet to come as a Kingdom of Priests after the Order of Melchizedek" it exposes the lack of vision and the pitiful condition of the visible church.

It is statements like this that has caused some to think that my cry and burden is to "SAVE THE CHURCH." That is really not what I am thinking at all.

My focus, my cry and my burden is to "SEEK THE KINGDOM."

It is this Experience that will "SAVE THE CHURCH."

The first Adam became a corporate man of a certain species who are called the "Corporate Adam."

All who have NOT escaped from first Adam are still "in Adam" and ALL in Adam die. Why?

That is because the sentence of death is upon all those in his genealogy.

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.

In Adam all die as one corporate man.

In that same way all those in the corporate Christ shall be made alive.

Therefore, the Last Adam, Who is called "Christ" is a Corporate New Man.

The scriptural Truth remains that if we are still in First Adam, we CANNOT also be in the Last Adam.

If this simple truth was clearly taught there would be no more confusion about whether Baptism in water was optional or not.

Therefore, only those who have died in Adam, been buried and have been resurrected into the Last Adam can participate in the Corporate Christ. Why?

"In Adam" death reigns, and "in Christ" Life reigns.

As "in Christ" all shall be made alive with His Life.

The point I am making is this; Jesus MUST be an authentic Man Who has been tempted in ALL things that confronted the angels that fell.

He also must be tempted in all things just like the first Adam was tempted but without sin or rebellion against God.

If He did not succeed in this, how could He judge the angels or the fallen race of first Adam who had rebelled against God?

God must find absolute obedience in a "man" before He can righteously judge disobedience in mankind.

Still, for the Second Man to succeed in this "experiment" he must be of a new and different creation.

He must be born of God in order to fulfill God's Purpose but He must also be an authentic man to die for the sins of Adam. Why?

1Cor 15:21 For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead.

Jesus must be a Man but of a different species without sin.

Therefore, He was born of a woman but with the Sperma of God.

Therefore, since He was not fully of the species of first Adam, He did not carry Adam's sin.

It was because He was born of God that He did not inherit the sin nature of first Adam passed to each generation by natural sperma of natural man.

The Father's Sperma that begot Jesus was the Living and Abiding Word of God, the Spirit of Christ, and it was that Word (Logos) that became flesh.

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Only those who have been born the exact same way, by the Sperma of God, and are of the new species on earth, can be Christians.

Even though there are multitudes in the churches, many are not Christians by birth.

Many are just religious Adams.

John 1:12 But as many as received Him, (the Word of God) to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, 13 who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

It is this eternal fact that divides the church which men are building from the Church He is Building.

Christians are "exclusive" because they have been conceived by God and by His exclusive Sperma.

Then this "new birth" begins the process, called Salvation, that is able to produce Christians who will eventually become the Glorious Church, without spot or wrinkle and to be holy and blameless?

Still, before this process can begin properly, God first must redeem the fallen race of first Adam by forgiving their sins.

2Cor 5:17 Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 18 Now all these things are from God, Who reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were entreating through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

21 He made Him Who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.



Then God is going to use the mortal body of man as "a tent" in which He will create this new species of man called Christian.

A Christian can ONLY be in the genealogy of the Last Adam.

For this reason each person must be redeemed from their fallen state. Why?

Because by man came death and by man must also come resurrection from that death.

By man came disobedience and unrighteousness so by man must also come obedience and righteousness and by that he must be restored to a Life Union with God.

In that same way, ALL those who will be part of Christ (Head and body) must be born from above and MUST be of the same new species as Christ Jesus.

This is why we insist that warehousing people of the old / Adam / first creation, CANNOT be called the Church that He is building.

ONLY this "new species Church" can qualify as the "Body of Christ."

The difficulty in understanding the correlation between the Son of Man and the Son of God is because both dwell in the same physical body.

Still, this is exactly how we exist also.

We have an outer shell which we inherited from first Adam.

This is now called the tent or the tabernacle.

One day we will lay this tent aside and then dwell in a building made by God which is eternal in the heavens.

At that time what is mortal {that which we inherited from first Adam} will be swallowed up by LIFE.

LIFE will be our new dwelling place.

2Cor 5:1 For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

2 For indeed in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven; 3 inasmuch as we, having put it on, shall not be found naked. 4 For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed, but to be clothed, in order that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now He Who prepared us for this very purpose is God, Who gave to us the Spirit as a Pledge.

It may not be possible to discern the difference between the Man, Christ Jesus, Who was visible and the Living Word of God Who is invisible.

This Man, Christ Jesus, is the Prototype Man and the Living and Abiding Word of God dwells within Him.

In the recorded Scriptures, sometimes we hear Jesus, the man, speaking and at other times we hear the Living Word of God speaking from the same mouth.

How can we explain such a thing?

Let us take an example; Did the Word of God exist before Abraham? Of course!

Did Jesus exist before Abraham was? No!

He was not yet 30 years old at this time.

In John 17 do we hear BOTH Jesus, the Man, and the Word of God speak? Of course!

How could this possibly be true?

Because the eternal Word of God was in Jesus and the Eternal Word was permitted to speak eternal words from out of Jesus.

While this may seem strange, sometimes the Word of God was speaking out of Jesus' mouth and sometimes Jesus, the man, was speaking.

While this may seem too mystical, this is exactly the same way we are supposed to minister the Word of God.

Paul was bold enough to claim the same method of speaking.

He knew when he was speaking and when Christ, the Word of God, was speaking.

Jesus ministered in this same way.

He was able to speak the Words of God and He was able to speak out from Himself and He was able to know the difference.

John 12:49 "For I did not speak on My Own initiative, but the Father Himself Who sent Me has given Me commandment, what to say, and what to speak.

John 17:5 "And now, glorify Thou Me together with Thyself, Father, with the Glory which I had with Thee before the world was.

6 "I manifested Thy name to the men whom Thou gavest Me out of the world; Thine they were, and Thou gavest them to Me, and they have kept Thy Word.

7 "Now they have come to know that everything Thou hast given Me is from Thee; 8 for the Words which Thou gavest Me I have given to them; and they received them, and truly understood that I came forth from Thee, and they believed that Thou didst send Me.

John 17:22 "And the glory which Thou hast given Me I have given to them; that they may be one, just as We are one; 23 I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, that the world may know that Thou didst send Me, and didst love them, even as Thou didst love Me. 24 "Father, I desire that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am, in order that they may behold My glory, which Thou hast given Me; for Thou didst love Me before the foundation of the world.

The basic question is this; Is it Jesus Who is in us or is it the Word of God Who is in us?

Is it even relevant to ask such a question?

I think it is and is essential to understand the "Body of Christ."

While there are 12 references to the body of Jesus, they refer to His body that was sacrificed on Calvary.

Heb 10:10 By this will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

The other places refer to the Church as the Body of Christ.

Another correction is necessary to address this issue of being "saved" when we receive "Jesus" as our Savior.

We are told to ask Jesus to come and live inside us.

Of course that is impossible because the Man, Christ Jesus, is seated at the right hand of God.

Then what do we receive as the Sperma of God?

We must receive the Spirit of Christ, the Living and Abiding Word of God, to live in us.

Is it Jesus in us that is our Hope of Glory or is it Christ in us?

It is clear that it is the Man Christ Jesus Who ascended to the Throne of God and now sits at the RIGHT Hand of God.

1Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one Mediator also between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,

Is Jesus STILL the Man Christ Jesus?

He certainly is Man.

He has not, as some say, reverted back into God and as such has become God?

Is there STILL The Father, The Word and the Holy Spirit Who is one God?

Did Jesus take up his eternal position at the right hand of the Majesty in the Heavens or WITHIN God as some say?

Heb 8:1 Now the main point in what has been said is this: we have such a High Priest, Who has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens,

2 a Minister in the sanctuary, and in the true Tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, not man.

The question that now arises is this;

Is it the Word of God Who has become High Priest or is it the Man Christ Jesus?

These are very important questions that should be answered correctly if we are to understand how "man" will function in the "world yet to come."

Heb 5:8 Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered.

9 And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the Source of eternal salvation, 10 being designated by God as a High Priest according to the Order of Melchizedek.

Our High Priest must be taken from among men so he can have compassion on the weakness of men and intercede for them.

The first question we must settle is this: How did Jesus became the Son of God?

The next is how did Jesus become the mature Word of God?

How was it that He came to perfection or full maturity?

The answer to these questions will reveal how we are to grow up in all things into Christ and to "go on" to perfection.

Hopefully, this will clear up some difficulties about the Body of Christ and open up some understanding about the Body of the High Priest.

While there is only one Christ there are many members of His Body.

Why is this important?

Because the members along with the Head are called "Christ."

1Co 12:12 For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ.

This DOES NOT say so also is Jesus.

In these Eternal realms both Jesus, the Head, together with the Body is called Christ.

We say the church IS the Body of Christ but NOT the body of Jesus.

While this may not be technically wrong, it confuses the issue. Why?

Because it is "CHRIST" in you which is the Hope of Glory.

This does NOT SAY it is Jesus in you which is your hope of glory.

Christ means "the Anointed One" in the Greek.

It is the word "Christos" and is translated sometimes as Messiah but means the "Anointed One."

Christians means "the anointed ones."

Both the Head and the body are "the anointed ones."

However, there is a great difference between "THE ANOINTED ONE WHO IS CHRIST JESUS" and His Body which are the anointed ones.

Therefore, it is not heresy to speak of the members of the Body of Christ as Christ.

We could call this combination of Head and Body the Completed Christ.

The real question is "how do the "believers" get from here to there?"

The confusion and controversies of the past concerning the "body" have focused upon "members of the visible church" as the Body of Christ.

This is not wrong if they qualify but we must first begin by identifying what the meaning is of the "real CHURCH."

For years it has been popular to call believers in the visible assemblies "CHURCHES."

The Bible only identifies the Church He is building as the "Lampstand Church" which is in the Holy Place in the Tabernacle of God.

In Revelation 2 and 3 we see Jesus walking about in "the Church" He is building and we hear what He is saying to His Church.

Therefore, to identify "His body" as the believers in the Outer Court Assemblies, or what we call the "visible church", is too shallow for a clear understanding.

The Outer Court groups are those who are "designed by God" to be processed (by the seven Outer Court experiences) to be prepared as priests of God to function in the Holy Place Life and Ministry.

However, every priest of God must come to a full anointing (be the anointed ones) and to function in a full consecration to do the whole Will of God.

Why is this essential?

Because God is raising up a Kingdom of Priests NOT a Kingdom of Outer Court believers.

We could ask; "Will every disobedient and unconsecrated believer who attends the visible church be qualified to judge the disobedient angels as some teach?"

Of course NOT!

Every "believer," who will fulfill the Purpose of God, must become a priest of God after the Order of Melchizedek.

Peter calls this a "Royal Priesthood" to offer up spiritual sacrifices to God.

This REQUIRES that every believer pass into and through each actual and essential experience in the Outer Court dimension.

Remember the need for absolute obedience is our goal.

After these seven Outer Court Foundations are our genuine experience, then we must pass through the Second Veil to take our position in the Church He is Building.

This Second Veil was NOT torn so this is Not a free pass through as the ignorant imply.

It is this level of maturity that is required to begin to participate in the Holy Place Life and ministry to God.

That means:

   (1) to Stand before Him

   (2) minister to Him

   (3) and Burn Incense, in the vertical dimension, then to

   (4) to be His Minister and function in the horizontal ministry in the Outer Court.

We should understand that the seven Outer Court experiences are ONLY preparation for the Priesthood ministry.

No "ministry" begins in the Outer Court.

All "ministry" begins in the Holy Place where we find the Lampstand church.

This limits "ministry" to those who have passed out of the natural realm of understanding and into the spiritual realm and the illumination of the Seven Spirits of God.

From the pattern it is clear that the "natural man" has no business being "in the ministry" because he can understand NOTHING of the Spirit of God.

However, this fact does not prevent the "natural man" from obtaining a religious degree, purchase an apostolic license and be appointed to a leadership position in the "natural religious societies" that are wrongly called churches.

It is my opinion that it is Christ Jesus, alone Who determines who is qualified to be a "priest or minister" in the true church and He Alone sets the ministries in that Lampstand Church.

This is made clear in 1 Corinthians 12: 28-30 where God sets the operations in the church.

1Cor 12:27 Now you are Christ's Body, and individually members of it.

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.

In Ephesians 4: 11-13 it is clear that Jesus Christ sets these ministries as administrations in the Lampstand Church "He is building."

Eph 4:10 He Who descended is Himself also He Who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.) 11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the Body of Christ;

13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the (full) knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fulness of Christ.

It is clear that Christ Jesus sets these ministries to Administrate the church He is building.

Therefore, we believe a great mistake is made when men appoint "ministers" by establishing their own qualifications and requirements and give them titles.

Most of these "ministries" are appointed from the outer court dimension rather than wait for Christ Jesus to set men in the ministries of His Own choosing from the Holy Place dimension.

These Outer Court "ministers" can only "minister" to those in the Outer Court preparation stages.

The problem is that many of these "self-appointed ministries" have not even completed the outer court preparation themselves.

Appointing these "ministries" before they are prepared to function in the eternal realms is a common practice in the assemblies today.

Since each of the seven Outer Court experiences are essential before God will permit us to "go on to perfection," only God knows who is ready.

The lack of genuine preparation is the predominate problem with these systems and with most other man-appointed "ministries."

It is this Lampstand Church that will complete God's Eternal Purpose for the church in this dispensation.

This is the group that functions in the Holy Place dimension.

These ministries are identified as those who are helping the church to grow up in all things into the Head and who are bringing the church to perfection / maturity / completion.

Remember, obedience to judge angels is toward God and NOT toward some earthly organization.

This was the failure of the discipleship movement.

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

5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God Who worketh all in all. KJV

   (1) The Holy Spirit gives gifts.

   (2) The Lord sets the Administrations in the Church

   (3) God sets the operations (functions) in the Church.

God sets these "Operations or functions" in the Church to get the Church informed and given vision and purpose and a definite reason to become what God has purposed from the very beginning.

It seems obvious that God sets these ministries for the "operations" in a local assembly which are quite different from the "ministries" that Christ Jesus, the Lord, has set in the Church He is building.

It might be possible to discover these God-given ministries in the "operations" of a newly formed assembly that is being introduced to the eternal realms.

Still, who could be so arrogant that they take it upon themselves to appoint ministries that ONLY God has purposed to set in the Church.

It should be noted that these "ministries" are set IN THE CHURCH and NOT over the Church as is commonly thought.

The Lord Jesus Christ (God's ultimate Authority in the human realm) sets these other ministries in the fledgling church to take the church on into the eternal realms of the Lampstand Church that HE is building.

These "ministries" are mature, selected, ordained and held responsible for the perfecting of the saints.

He Who has ascended far above the existing heavens has by His Own choosing appointed these ministries to assist in building HIS Lampstand Church.

Surely, only some arrogant or ignorant person would dare to usurp His authority and attempt to appoint some counterfeit "prophets or apostles, teachers or pastors" of their own choosing.

Today we see men making crude, ignorant, immature and undisciplined disciples and calling them "apostles."

1Cor 12:7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the [Holy] Spirit [the evidence, the spiritual illumination of the Spirit] for good and profit. (AMP)

The "gifts" of the Spirit certainly work in the Outer Court dimension as part of the Outer Court anointing within the "in-part (down payment) measure of the Spirit."

This is the "earnest" measure of the Anointing and functions in the Outer Court, natural light dimension.

This "down payment" measure is called the "baptism of the Holy Spirit."

However, the inner Anointing by which we function as priests of God, takes place in the Holy Place.

This "Anointing" is abiding within us and has the evidence that God is personally teaching us all things.

1 John 2:27 And as for you, the Anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His Anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.

To assume this "inner Anointing" takes place in the Outer Court dimension, at the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, is the reason carnal believers say they don't need to be taught by man.

However, God has certainly established men in ministries who are "spiritual leaders / teachers" to instruct those who are in the process of becoming priests.

These ministries are to:

  • lay foundations,

  • teach the Ways of God and

  • take on the responsibility to cause the believers to "go on to perfection."

These "five-fold ministries" BEGIN in the Holy Place but function in the Outer Court dimension and are appointed by Jesus Christ for the perfecting of the saints.

Here is where the "five-fold" error is being made.

The "five-fold ministry" is ONLY appointed by Christ Jesus from His exalted position "far above all heavens" and NOT by uninformed and egocentric men on earth.

For that very reason "all" "five-fold ministry" begins in the Holy Place and NOT in the Outer Court.

In other words, until individual persons actually ascend into the Holy Place life and ministry (following the Outer Court preparation) there is NO valid "five-fold ministry" in the Outer Court realm.

We point all this out to show that the Lord, Jesus Christ, has been given ALL authority in heaven and on earth and He is busy doing His God-appointed job.

He has NOT disappeared and no longer functions.

He is actively involved in every operation as the Great High Priest administering the New Covenant Experience to all who seek Him.

He is actively doing this as the Son of Man AND as the Son of God.

As the Son of Man he can have compassion on us.

Heb 5:1 For every high priest taken from among men is appointed on behalf of men in things pertaining to God, in order to offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins; 2 he can deal gently with the ignorant and misguided, since he himself also is beset with weakness;

The objection to this "pattern for the priesthood ministry" which was given by God to Moses is that it was NOT given to the church under the New Covenant.

My answer to that objection is that the Book of Hebrews along with 1 Corinthians 10: 1-11 and Romans 15:4 confirm that these experiences of Israel are types and shadows for us.

The preparation for priesthood after the order of Aaron is a type and an example for us of the Priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek.

There are at least 40 chapters in Scriptures dealing with the Tabernacle of Moses.

Many more chapters deal with the priesthood that was assigned to the Tabernacle plus hundreds of verses dealing with the sacrifices and offerings.

The Book of Hebrews gives us examples of how these things are interpreted into the Christian Life and specifically according to the New Covenant Priesthood after the order of Melchizedek.

Heb 8:1 Now the main point in what has been said is this: we have such a High Priest, Who has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens,

2 a Minister in the sanctuary, and in the true Tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, not man.

3 For every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices; hence it is necessary that this High Priest also have something to offer.

4 b, just as Moses was warned by God when he was about to erect the tabernacle; for, "SEE," He says, "THAT YOU MAKE all things ACCORDING TO THE PATTERN WHICH WAS SHOWN YOU ON THE MOUNTAIN."

To say that the Tabernacle or the Priesthood are just about the Old Covenant Law and has nothing to do with us is gross ignorance among the vastly uninformed.

However, in this study we are interested in understanding how "Christ is formed in us."

Again, we are not referring to "Jesus being formed in us!"

All focus of ministry is upon the "the New Species Man" (Jesus – one of us) Who is seated at the right hand of God.

First we will see how Jesus was formed in the womb of Mary and how He became the Christ of God.

1Peter 1:22 Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart,

23 for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the Living and Abiding Word of God.

G4690 oπεìρμα sperma sper'-mah From G4687; something sown, that is, seed (including the male "sperm"); by implication offspring; specifically a remnant (figuratively as if kept over for planting): - issue, seed.

G4701 σποραì spora spor-ah' From G4687; a sowing, that is, (by implication) parentage - seed.

G4690 σπεìρμα sperma Thayer Definition:

(1) from which a plant germinates 1a) the seed, i.e. the grain or kernel which contains within itself the germ of the future plants; 1a1) of the grains or kernels sown (1b) metaphorically a seed, i.e. a residue, or a few survivors reserved as the germ of the next generation (just as seed is kept from the harvest for the sowing)

(2) the semen virile (2a) the product of this semen, seed, children, offspring, progeny 2b) family, tribe, posterity 2c) whatever possesses vital force or life giving power

2c1) of divine energy of the Holy Spirit operating within the soul by which we are regenerated.

Using the Greek word "Sperma" or "Semen" to refer to the Living and Abiding Word of God has been adequately criticized over the years.

However, this is what the Word of God says as it identifies itself.

It is essential that we see that The "SPERMA" (Semen of God) that came into Mary when she was "overshadowed" by the Holy Spirit was the Living and Abiding Word of God.

Because He was born of God (from above) and we can confidently say He is the Son of God.

The source of His being was the Living and Abiding Word of God, having been born by the Sperma of God.

This "Seed" is not of the perishable kind but is totally different "seed" of the imperishable kind.

That is the seed (the Divine Sperma or Semen) which produced Jesus, the Son of God!

He was also born of the human, Mary, making Him "the Son of Man!"

For that reason He is the Man Christ Jesus!

This may be a little confusing until we understand that "sin and death" came through man.

Therefore, the solution to "sin and death" must also come through "man."

1Cor 15:19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied.

20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the First Fruits of those who are asleep.

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.

Rom 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned.

Because Jesus was born both of God and born though Mary He could be BOTH the Son of Man and the Son of God.

This qualified Him to be both Savior and Lord.

Since He was born of the Sperma of God this qualified Him to be both Lord and Christ, the Anointed One, Messiah.

John 1:10 He (the Word of God) was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, (the Word of God) to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, 13 who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

If you read this carefully you will see that this "new birth" is by receiving the Word of God and that is solely given by the Will of God.

No man can come unless the Father draws him.

In modern evangelism we can get people "saved, religiously" even if God Is NOT drawing them.

How? By logical and intellectual persuasion and by saying certain words.

Modern evangelism can get people "religiously saved" who have never been born of the Divine Sperma of God.

John 6:44 "No one can come to Me, unless the Father Who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.

45 "It is written in the prophets, 'AND THEY SHALL ALL BE TAUGHT OF GOD.' Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to Me.

This is still speaking about the Word of God that came into the world in the form of "Sperma" that became flesh.

He has birthed the "Man Christ Jesus" as His first born Son.

His purpose for dwelling in man was so He could now speak the Eternal Word in Jesus and through Jesus.

Jesus doesn't speak on His Own initiative but just as He hears.

As many as received Him (the Word of God) He gave the right to become the children of God.

In the total context it is clear that this is NOT speaking about receiving Jesus as personal Savior but receiving the Word of God, the Sperma, as the Source of the new birth.

The Word of God is the Glory that was seen in Jesus.

The Word of God comes to us as Sperma!

EVERYONE, who is born of God MUST have received the Sperma / Semen / Seed of God.

This is what divides the real Christians from the religious believers.

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

15 John bore witness of Him, and cried out, saying, "This was He of Whom I said, 'He Who comes after me has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.'"

16 For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.

This is obviously speaking about the Word of God that existed long before John!

We also know that Jesus was born after John.

After studying all these 16 verses about the Word of God from verse 1 to 16, we finally are introduced to the Man, Christ Jesus, in John 1:17.

John 1:17 For the Law was given through Moses; Grace and Truth were realized through Jesus Christ.

18 No man has seen God at any time; the Only Begotten God, Who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him. 19 And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent to him priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?"

20 And he confessed, and did not deny, and he confessed, "I am not the Christ."

The Word was made flesh and the result was the Son of God, the Man Jesus Christ.

Both Grace and Truth were realized through Jesus Christ, the Man Christ Jesus.

It is the Word of God that was in the bosom of the Father Who has explained Him - the Father.

The Word of God is the ONLY "begotten God" [this is the correct translation] or we might say that [The Sperma of God] actually became flesh in Jesus.]

The Word of God was NOT begotten OF God because the Word of God IS God.

He is the "begotten God." God begotten in the Man, Christ Jesus. How?

By the Sperma of God which IS The Living and Abiding Word of God.

When Jesus, Who was conceived by the Sperma of God in the body of Mary, grew up to "perfection" or "maturity" in all things, he became the Word of God. Why?

Because He was born of God by the Sperma which IS the Living and Abiding Word of God.

The picture we must retain is this; The Sperma grew to full maturity and became exactly like its Source, the Word of God!

Every seed produces after its own kind.

If He plants the "Seed of God" it will produce after its own kind.

When that Seed comes to full growth it will be the Word of God.

Jesus was born of that Seed and He came to full growth or perfection so His name is called "the Word of God."

All that would be just academic If we did not HAVE to be born the exact same way but with a slight difference.

We are ALL initially born as the son of man and then we must be born again as a child of God.

This new birth is in the same vein as the birth of Jesus Who IS the prototype Son.

We must be born from above, not of blood or by the will of man, or by the will of the flesh (with perishable sperma) but we must also be born of God by the imperishable Sperma.

Jesus was the very FIRST to be born of the imperishable Sperma.

Therefore, He is called the "First Born."

1Peter 1:20 For He was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but has appeared in these last times for the sake of you 21 who through Him are believers in God, Who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

22 Since you have in obedience to the Truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart,

This is obviously speaking about the Man Christ Jesus Who was known before the foundation of the world.

He is also the One Who was raised from the dead and Jesus is the One Who has received Glory.

This does NOT say He existed before the foundation of the world but that He was foreknown from eternity past.

1Peter 1:23 for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the Living and Abiding Word of God.


25 BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ABIDES FOREVER." And this is the Word which was preached to you.

G4487 0ʽη?μα rhēma Thayer Definition: 1) that (WORD) which is or has been uttered by the living voice, thing spoken, word.

This WORD (Rhema) has declared that we have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the Living and Abiding Word of God

If we have truly been born of the "Sperma" (Seed) of God, the Living and Abiding Word of God has brought forth a new creation man in us and we are a completely new species of persons on this earth.

This new creation person is NOT male or female so it never marries or is it given in marriage but is like the angels.

This new creation man is NOT an angel but has no gender, race or economic status.

We "must" have been born of the Imperishable Sperma or we are at very best just natural men of flesh (born only of perishable sperma) and No amount of preaching, teaching or worship music will ever make us spiritual persons.

Assembling multitudes of these natural persons together on Sunday will NEVER qualify as the Church He is Building.

Of course each of us was born of the "perishable" sperma in our original natural state.

If we have NOT been born of the imperishable Sperma of God we are in serious trouble.

This "Sperma" is the Living and Abiding Word of God and is the birth Source of the new creation man who is truly born of God.

This is what Jesus referred to as being "born again" which enables us to see the Kingdom of God from a distance.

Preaching the Kingdom to those who have NOT been Born Again is generally unfruitful because they can't see the Kingdom and they have no idea what we are talking about.

Then they misunderstand and confuse the whole issue of the Purpose of God.

We are "born again" as babies of the new creation but even as babies we are still children of God.

We are part of the new Genesis which demands that only this new species of persons can participate in the New Covenant blessings.

These "babies" should NOT be confused with the "Sons of God" which have grown up in all things into Christ.

This lack of growth of the new inner man is the reason the visible church is in such a pitiful condition.

The visible church, as we can easily see, is just made up of baby Christians for the most part and many in the visible church have never even been born again, including the leaders.

Therefore, many are attempting to build a spiritual church with natural people that are just wood, hay and straw.

These can never be included in the Church He Is Building which is ONLY built with Silver, Gold and Precious Stones.

This "new species of persons" who have been born of the "Imperishable Seed" by the Living and Abiding Word of God are the ONLY ones who can be joined to Jesus, the Head, Who is the First Born of this new species.

He is now our Great High Priest!

In other words; it is impossible to join the old creation man to Jesus Who is of the new species.

Adam and all those who are in Adam are of the old, natural species and CANNOT be a part of the new species who are called Christian.

This is why NONE who are of Adam can be accepted into the Body of Christ.

"Christ" is ONLY of the new species that have been born of God by the Living and Abiding Word of God.

Christians mean little Christs or little (or lesser) anointed ones.

All those who are part of the body of Christ {now the Body of the High Priest} MUST be born the same way as the Head of the Body and be of the exact same species.

God is revealed as Father, Word and Holy Spirit and He is ONE God.

He is also indivisible which means he cannot be broken up into various persons.

The Word IS God!

He (the Word) cannot be removed from God to become something different than God. Why?

There is but ONE GOD Who is identified as Father – Word - Holy Spirit!

Therefore, if He cannot be separated from God how did the Word come to earth and become flesh?

Obviously, if the Word was absent from God, He could no longer be God because 1/3 would be missing.

But what if God remained the Father, the Word and the Spirit (One God) but the Sperma was released to become man?

It is Obvious That ONE GOD could have many children by the same Sperma and He would not be depleted one iota.

He is FOREVER One God even though He has millions of babies.

This appears to be exactly God's method of reproduction.

However, even though God has His Ideal Son, He is still not satisfied because His Eternal Purpose requires that He have many sons just like His Only Begotten Son.

That means full grown sons that can share His Glory.

The Ultimate Son or ONE NEW MAN is a corporate Man called Christ.

This One New Man, Who is now High Priest, is both Head and Body.

Jesus, the prototype Man, is Head and the Manifested Full Grown Sons are His Body.

Or we could define this corporate Son in another way.

The Full Grown Manifested Son is the High Priest and the Ruler of the World yet to come.

Jesus is the Head and the Full Grown Sons are the Body of the High Priest, after the Order of Melchizedek.

This Corporate Son is a Kingdom of Priests.

We can now call this Corporate Son Mount Zion, the City of the Living God, the New Jerusalem.

The Body of the Corporate Son is made up of Bondservants who are the Overcomers and are called the Bride of Christ, the Wife of the Lamb, because they have grown up in all things into Christ and they have become ONE with Him.

There is an absolute UNION OF LIFE!

This Prototype Son Is Now Seated at the right hand of God.

The Father; Word; Holy Spirit is One God.

But the Man; Christ Jesus is Seated at His Right Hand.

This is really not very complicated when we understand that God is one Corporate God!

In like manner the Corporate Son or One New Man (the Corporate Christ) will be seated at the right hand on the throne of the Majesty in the Heavens, or on the right hand of God.

Rev 3:21 'He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

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.

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.

It is obvious from this Scripture that both the Head and the body are one new man and that this one new man (Head and body) are the fulness of Him Who fills all in all.

All things are put into subjection under His feet.

It seems that "His feet" means the new corporate man who is God's corporate Christ.

To extend this "gospel" into our personal experience we should know that this same "Living and Abiding Word of God" by which we were "born again" lives within us.

We should also be aware that for all this to work out according to God's design it is essential for the Holy Spirit to dwell within us.

He is the ANOINTING that makes us the "anointed ones."

If the Word of God has grown within us, it might be possible for Him to speak in us.

We know He CAN speak because He is the Rhema Word of God.

The question is this: Can He speak in us and through us?

My opinion of the next dimension of ministry is that THIS is how it must function.

God, the Word, speaking in us and then through us.

2Cor 13:2 I have previously said when present the second time, and though now absent I say in advance to those who have sinned in the past and to all the rest as well, that if I come again, I will not spare anyone, 3 since you are seeking for proof of the Christ Who speaks in me, and Who is not weak toward you, but mighty in you.

Christ, the Word of God, was able to speak in Paul.

He obviously could easily speak in Jesus Christ since he was birthed by the Word of God and could, therefore, speak the Words of God.

The question is this: Can He also speak in us?

If He can speak in man, we must wonder why He doesn't speak in us.

Maybe He is speaking but our inner man does not have ears mature enough to hear what He is saying.

If we have ears to hear into that realm why are we not hearing and then speaking what we hear?

Is this the way the prototype Son ministered?

If we are trying to hear Him speak in the outer ears we may be disappointed when He really speaks within us.

The New Covenant Ministry demands that all Holy Place Ministry function in this way!

Another confusing concept is that God is Spirit.

That means He is totally different from man and exists in a higher realm than the dirt realm of earth.

The Father is Spirit, the Word is Spirit and the Holy Spirit is Spirit.

There is a distinction between the Spirit of the Father, the Spirit of the Word (the Spirit of Christ) and the Holy Spirit, nevertheless, this is One God.

We saw that ONLY those who receive the Word of God can possibly be born of God or be the children of God.

However, the Word of God is Spirit because He is God and God is Spirit.

This Word of God, by which we are born again, is also called the Spirit of Christ.

The Spirit of Christ has always existed and was with the Father before the world was.

1Peter 1:10 As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful search and inquiry, 11 seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow.

12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the Gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven--things into which angels long to look.

It is clear that the Old Covenant prophets were prophesying by the Spirit of Christ Who was in them.

{This does Not say they were born again} This indicates that the difference between the Old Covenant prophets and New Covenant preaching is the difference between the Spirit of Christ and the Holy Spirit.

The Gospel, under the New Covenant, is preached by the Holy Spirit Who has been sent down from Heaven for that purpose.

Of course He, the Spirit of Christ, came for many other reasons and to accomplish many eternal things.

Rom 8:9 However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.

10 And if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him Who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He Who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit Who indwells you.

We know it was the Holy Spirit Who raised Jesus from the dead.

Still, if we have not yet received the Spirit of Christ (the Word of God) we simply do NOT belong to Him.

Act 16:7 and when they had come to Mysia, they were trying to go into Bithynia, and the Spirit of Jesus did not permit them;

Php 1:19 For I know that this shall turn out for my deliverance through your prayers and the provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

Jesus, because He was the Man, He had his Own Spirit which was committed to God at Calvary.

Gal 4:6 And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father!"

All those who have been born of God have received the Spirit of Christ [the Living and Abiding Word of God].

This is why some ministers say when you are "saved" you receive the Holy Spirit.

Of course the Spirit of Christ is NOT an evil spirit so He is A Holy Spirit but NOT The Holy Spirit.

The Spirit of Christ is given for Salvation and the Holy Spirit is given for ministry.

Jesus Christ ministers to us the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit ministers to us the Spirit of Christ.

Mat 3:11 "As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He Who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.12 "And His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

John 20:21 Jesus therefore said to them again, "Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you." 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.

The Greek says He blew in them {as one blows in a flute} and said receive the Spirit Holy.

This was directly following the resurrection and was the very first moment they could be born again.

He blew in them the Spirit of Christ and they were born again.

However, they must wait another 50 days before they could receive the Holy Spirit and go out to preach. Why?

Because the Gospel of the Kingdom is preached by the Holy Spirit sent down from Heaven.

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him, and make Our abode with him.

24 "He who does not love Me does not keep My Words; and the Word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father's Who sent Me.

The Father, The Word, And the Holy Spirit, the One True God, is willing to make His abode with us and in us IF we live in obedience to the Word of God and if we love Jesus and keep his Word.

While all this may seem incredible, it is in this way that God WILL obtain His Eternal Purpose through man and it is through the Corporate Christ that God will rule over the world yet to come.

God has already revealed His Purpose and has already subjected the world yet to come to man.

We are assuming that this One New Man is the Corporate Christ.

Heb 2:3 how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard,

4 God also bearing witness with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His Own Will.

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?


8 THOU HAST PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDER HIS FEET." For in subjecting all things to him, He left nothing that is not subject to him. But now we do not yet see all things subjected to him. 9 But we do see Him Who has been made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that by the Grace of God He might taste death for everyone.

10 For it was fitting for Him, for Whom are all things, and through Whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the Author of their salvation through sufferings.

If we leave this revelation of Christ out of our Gospel we miss the Purpose for which God restored the earth and the very reason He will create a completely New Earth or world yet to come which is called "THE TABERNACLE OF GOD."

If we miss this understanding we will be ignorant why we must grow up in ALL things into the Head which IS Christ, Head and Body, the ONE NEW MAN.

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

This "world yet to come" is called "THE TABERNACLE OF GOD."

Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. 2 And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.

3 And I heard a loud voice from the Throne, saying, "Behold, the Tabernacle of God is among men, and He shall dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be among them,

The World Yet To Come is the Tabernacle of God and is made in three parts:

  1. The New Earth;

  2. The New Heaven and

  3. The New Jerusalem.

Every believer must fit into one of those dimensions.

The lowest level is that obtained by the thief on the cross and is found on the New Earth but under the Bronze Altar.

Rev 6:9 And when He broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained;

10 and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true, wilt Thou refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"

11 And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, should be completed also.

The question is NOT do we go to heaven but WHERE in heaven do we go.

There really IS a reason to sanctify and consecrate your life to do the whole Will of God.

All Christian Ministry BEGINS in the Holy Place.

This current error of producing a continuous series of Carnal Outer Court Ministries, that we hope will change the focus and direction of the current church system, will be long and difficult to correct. Why?

That is because retirements, hierarchy, positions and titles are all ingrained within this system.

However, the history of change in the church systems over the past centuries has always been started by a few pioneers.

A historical change began in the 1400's when a few priests recognized the vast corruption which existed at the top of the church system.

Some change, radical and systematic, has occurred in every century since that time.

A radical change came in 1517 with Martin Luther but systematic change has occurred since that time.

We can identify about six restoration changes during that time period.

However, the next change that we anticipate will be so radical that the "church system" that exists will most likely be the severe persecutor of the next restoration.

We are identifying the next major restoration to be the Holy Place Priesthood Ministry.

Nevertheless, the seventh Outer Court Restoration will certainly be the Consecration Offering. Why?

That is because the Priesthood Ministry will require:

  • the Bondservant Consecration and

  • the Pure Gold Lampstand construction of the Church He is Building.

It will require:

  • the Inner Anointing and

  • the Illumination and Revelation of the Seven Spirits of God.

It will require:

  • the Priests EATING THE SHOWBREAD and

  • the actual burning of the Unique Incense which is related to the Gold Incense Altar.

This function will be identified directly with the Body of our Great High Priest.

This is the ONE NEW MAN that will certainly do the greater works and confuse the current church system of carnal ministries who are insisting upon the status quo.

We expect the believers to divide into two opposing forces that are related to the church men are building and the Church He is Building.

The End time Church will be subjected to MUCH violence but the real enemy will be a surprise.
