The New Covenant Voice For The Gospel of the Kingdom

We Must Begin Our Gospel At the Proper Place.

The Gospel of the Kingdom BEGINS IN God, Himself.

Speaking "the Word of God" from The Word of God!


October 15, 2014

It appears that, we as a civilization, have entered into a time of extremes and radical change in many areas of society. Terrorism is on the increase, the economy is very tenuous, there are wars and rumors of wars, terrible outbreaks of strange diseases, global warming is presented as a political crisis, and there is political unrest in China and around the world. The public pendulum is once again swinging toward serious and global disasters in the extremes. Of course the pendulum of change always swings too far toward the extremes before it corrects.

Different groups are concerned about different catastrophes and each are promoting their concerns but generally also in the extremes. Various conspiracies are rampant. While some are focusing upon global diseases or economic failure others are focusing upon fallen angels, demons being loosed upon earth, armies of giants, the invasion by aliens, and the terrible times that are about to plague the earth. Some Christian Groups are promoting an immediate and total preparation by storing food and water and preparing for an invasion of constantly changing enemies! Some groups are suggesting that these disasters are created by a conspiracy within our federal government. Diverse and increasing fears are appearing now on a regular basis.

I also have my little extreme that I am focusing upon and that is preparing a people to fulfill our eternal destiny. Any one with "functioning" eyes should see the pitiful condition of the church and the lack of a real God given gospel being preached. Those with each "concern" feel they must hype and over emphasize and radicalize their message just to make themselves heard among all the other extremes and radical noises.

My extremes have focused upon whom God is and His absolute Sovereignty over all things. I am attempting to radicalize the Gospel of the Kingdom and God's Eternal Purpose and cause that "message" to overpower all the other NOISES that are thundering over the airways. Of course my "extremes" are just a squeak in the confusing thunder and I have failed miserably to make any inroads into the situation and state of panic permeating the airways. Nevertheless, several of us here in Ohio believe there must be a greater and much more radical change take place in the ministry before is can produce a change in the church. We understand that the change expected, while still abstract, is greater and more radical than has ever taken place in the church in the last several decades.

It is because of our anticipation of a radical change that my extreme ideas about the Kingdom come in direct contrast and conflict with the extremes promoting the grace, love and the mercy of God. In other words the Gospel of the Kingdom comes into a direct conflict with the gospel of the half-priced sale. In most places now the Gospel of Panic seems to be superior in importance to the Gospel of the Kingdom.

Nevertheless, we are attempting to ignore all the secular and religious noise and the Gospel of Doom and Gloom. Why? That is because we insist that EVERYTHING begins with God and EVERYTHING ends with God and nothing happens that is not permitted by God. God still has total Sovereignty over ALL of His creation. If God permits it, the consequences are beyond our control. In other words God can do anything He wants, to anyone He wants and with anything He wants, as often as He wants, for any reason He wants, and change and adjust all circumstances to coincide with whatever He Wants to accomplish. Since God is in CHARGE of everything in His universe, the devil, the fallen angels, global warming, diseases, terrorism, the economy and anything we can name is and has always been subjected to God as the Ultimate designer of everything. God even tells us that EVERYTHING is going to be so terrible in the end time that only the elect will be saved. He assures us that "those who endure to the end will be saved."

My seemingly extreme message focuses upon the Kingdom of God and how to get people so radically "saved" that they have such a genuine and eternal experience that they are able to endure to the end and receive that promised Eternal Salvation. My "exaggerated Gospel" focuses upon the initial experience of being born of God by the infusion of His Divine Sperma so that a new inner Kingdom Person is conceived. This Kingdom Person then must be birthed into that Ultimate Kingdom Government, as an inner life reality, so that his only concern is to live in a full obedience to doing the whole Will of the Father. We may even call this "process of preparation" "The PERFECTION OF THE BRIDE."

Some criticism has been offered that is directed to our "departure from reality" and our focus upon the radicalized message linked to the Kingdom and the World yet to Come. Some are concerned that we have failed to recognize the frailty of man, his total weakness and inability to conform to the rigors and demands that God has set forth in His Word. Therefore, God has extended a super grace during the church age to excuse man from any responsibility. Of course it is certainly true that there no inherent ability in the natural man to enable him to fulfill the eternal demands of God. Our position has always been that God never expected the natural man to accomplish anything in these extreme areas of preparation, consecration and obedience connected to these higher eternal realms. For that reason God established a Whole New Covenant by which man can and must overcome all his inabilities.

It is because of the frailty of the natural man and his total inability to fulfill the ultimate purpose of God that our radical "message" and "our extreme gospel" must begin before man existed. Therefore, the Kingdom Message does not begin in Genesis three or in Genesis two OR in Genesis one but it MUST begin in God, Himself. Why? That is because God, Himself, is the One who has created us, determined and predestined the end! God has created us to fulfill His Eternal Purpose so He has a plan to accomplish that.

Rom 8:26 And in the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; 27 and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 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.

It is certainly true that the first creation failed in most areas of fulfilling God's Predestined Purpose! For that reason ONLY God can re-create us to fulfill His demands and achieve to the perfection to which we have been predestined. It seems apparent that God's plan must involve a radical change in both the essence and substance of the natural man to enable man to meet these extreme demands of God. If God cannot prepare man by imparting something eternal from Himself into man, fulfilling these extremes just becomes another religious fantasy. We could ask; if we have been predestined to God's specific end what other alternative is available to us except by an impartation from God? There is NO other option except to yield to the preparation that was designed by God! Preparing "talking points" for a Sunday message has become common but is a big waste of precious time.

It is for that reason that we must fully understand Whom God Is and recognize His mighty power in providing everything necessary to fulfill His Eternal Purpose within a completely "new creation" man. Why? That is because of His Predestined Plan to complete and fulfill His Eternal Purpose. However, because the disgraced and disenfranchised man in Genesis three (the old creation) cannot meet these demands, a completely new creation must begin. The man who will fulfill God's predestined plan must now be re-created in God's own image and likeness.

This is essential because this provision of image and likeness was never restored to mankind under the Old Covenant. Therefore, it must now become available to us in the New Covenant. If our "salvation" does not re-create into God's image and likeness with the ability to fulfill God's Ultimate Purpose, that "salvation" is less than God intended and certainly less than what we were predestined to receive.

It is apparent that all natural men since Genesis 3, including all those living under the Old Covenant, reveal a history of the total failure of the natural man to fulfill the Predestined Plan of God. This history continued for 4000 years. This was no surprise to God because He chose us in Christ BEFORE Genesis One.

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him. In love 5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. 7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, 8 which He lavished upon us. In all wisdom and insight 9 He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him 10 with a view to an administration suitable to the fulness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things upon the earth. In Him 11 also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, 12 to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.

Explanation; "Administration Suitable"

1. The act of administering; direction; management; government of public affairs; the conducting of any office or employment. 2. The executive part of government, consisting in the exercise of the constitutional and legal powers, the general superintendence of national affairs, and the enforcement of laws.

It is apparent that all things, including the end, were determined by God BEFORE the beginning. Therefore, our gospel should begin with God BEFORE the very beginning. Why? That is because the "end results" are irrevocable! That means before the earth was restored to a livable condition in Genesis one, God had already designed the "world yet to come." Everything begins with God, is designed by God, is predestined by God and is unfolding according to His kind intention which He purposed in CHRIST. None of this began with man and man has no clue to how to fulfill God's predestined purpose.

Does this mysterious work of fulfilling God's Predestined Plan and the comprehensive message of the recreation of mankind necessary to meet those demands MUST begin with God. Does this fact present to us the magnitude of this "BIG JOB" for each of us to complete God's Predestined Plan by God's Predestined Method? It certainly does! Since it is certain that God has a Predestined End, it is also certain that He has a Predestined Plan and Provision for us to achieve that End. It is this "calling" that becomes our life's work and the "Big Job" for the ministry.

The magnitude of our "radical message" becomes our focus and that creates our defense of the gospel. This isolates us from the rejection and becomes our resource and our fortification against the announcers of doom and gloom. Why?

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Man did not exist "in the beginning." In the beginning there was ONLY God. We need to differentiate between God and man and not confuse image and likeness with being the same thing as God. Man was created BY GOD!

God IS Spirit; God IS Life; Go IS Love, That is who and what God IS. God has attributes like Grace and Mercy but He also has attributes like Justice, Judgement which results in consequences. None of His attributes define Who God IS. Therefore, centering our "gospel" in one or more of His attributes is not only foolish but perverts the real gospel into some half-priced bargain or an outright give-a-way. Our Eternal Gospel MUST begin in God, Himself. We must begin in the Heart of God and try to understand why He did what He did, in the beginning.

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.

All this is revealing who the Word of God IS. This is NOT speaking about Jesus who sits at the right hand of God! The Word which IS (also) God and who was "in the beginning" was with God is the actual source of Divine Life and Light that is available to man. This "WORD" through which everything was created preexisted man and the restoration of the earth. The Word is the Sperma from which man receives the Life and the Light of God. It is through the Living and Abiding Word of God that it is possible for man to be "BORN OF GOD" or be "born again." If there is no Sperma received there is NO Life or Light that will be produced within man. This is the Divine Source of the New Creation.

When man was created he received life but he MUST then eat from the Tree of Life to receive what he was lacking to rule over the earth for God. Having the "calling" to rule is one thing but having the ability to complete that calling is quite another.

Any "religious experience" that is LESS that this "actual experiential reality" of receiving the Living and the Abiding Word of God is just more religion and must NOT be confused with Christianity. The "Sunday Talking Points" that do not produce a New Creation Person who is Born of God, should be condemned as religious nonsense.

It is for that reason that each potential Christian must be made fully aware that through the infusioin of the Living and the Abiding Word of God a new Life and Light Source begins! This is not just that man receives "light and Life" but that he is integrally linked with the Divine Source of Light and Life! This IS basis of all New Covenant ministry. This can only become a reality when a distinctly new creation/ new species of persons begin. Our ability to overcome and fulfill our predestined calling is directed related to the infusion of the Word of the Living God becoming our Dive Source of ministry. We must be totally convinced that the old creation can NEVER overcome nor can he fulfill and neither can he ever please God.

Why is all this New Creation / New Species "foundation" necessary for this study? That is because the Kingdom Message must be preached by the New Species of Man who is inherently linked with the Living and Abiding Word of God. Why? That is because the old creation man can NEVER please God and has no ability to preach the Kingdom of God or to demonstrate its total authority. It is our living connection to BOTH the Living and Abiding Word of God AND the Holy Spirit that enables us to preach "the Kingdom" itself. The natural man can preach ABOUT the Kingdom!

Gen 1:26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." 27 And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Man was created in God's Image and within His Likeness. Man in this primary state of perfection was given dominion over the earth and the things in it. Of course for man to rule he must completely avoid the Tree of Knowledge! There was no restriction upon eating from the Tree of Life and this eating was essential for man's preparation to fulfill his calling TO RULE. My theory is that this condemnation upon functioning or ministering out of natural learning and knowledge is still a serious problem today. Ministering out of His Life is God's Predestined method today and the ONLY way the Kingdom can be preached.

Of course in Genesis 3 man ate from the restricted tree and lost both the Divine image and likeness and lost his dominion. (the physical part of man remained) It is for that reason that WHERE we begin our gospel makes a tremendous difference in both its content and its effectiveness in determining God's Predestined Purpose for the creation of man.

Gen 1:28 And God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

To rule over the earth and everything on it is one of the Predestined Purposes for which mankind was created. The first man failed that calling. The Last Adam did not fail. Still, that calling will now be fully fulfilled in the Kingdom Government of God. This will begin during the Millennial Reign of Christ Jesus. Also in the Eternal Dimension of the World yet to Come. The Last Adam, the perfected MAN has already arrived on the scene. What is the next part of God's Plan?

Gen 2:18 Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him."

When God made man, the woman was in the man, so man was called "they and them." But in order to be fruitful and multiply the woman was taken OUT of the first Adam (man), perfected (full maturity) and presented to Adam as his wife. (This fact will be very important when the Second Adam is presented and a totally new creation begins. This means that the Bride is taken OUT OF CHRIST perfected and brought to Jesus as His full grown bride in Revelation 19. This process of "going on to perfection" is called "the Christian Life"

Gen 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; 17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you shall surely die."

Gen 3:17 Then to Adam He said, "Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, 'You shall not eat from it'; Cursed is the ground because of you; In toil you shall eat of it All the days of your life. 18 "Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you; And you shall eat the plants of the field; 19 By the sweat of your face You shall eat bread, Till you return to the ground, Because from it you were taken; For you are dust, And to dust you shall return."

"Prayer" that is informing the Lord, the Last Adam, what He needs to be doing is a big waste of time!

Here in Genesis three one of the "attributes" of God was manifested. That is Divine Judgement and consequences. These first three chapters in Genesis have been used for many years to establish the gospel with the "three distinctive beginnings" that are preached today.

For example; If we begin our gospel in Genesis three with the fall of man and his removal from Eden, when man is finally forgiven, man's need is met and he has reached the perceived goal. It is preached that when he dies (in the body) "he will go to heaven." It is significant to know that man, in his fallen condition, was sent "east of Eden" and into the dirt dimension from which his visible part, body, was taken and could function.

Why was this necessary? Man had lost that dimension of image and likeness that was inherent within his former created LIFE. Therefore, his outer man survived but that inner and invisible part of man, image and likeness, "DIED." Because his image and likeness had been lost he must be isolated from the Tree of Life to prevent man from obtaining eternal life. Otherwise man would live forever in his fallen state.

In this (outside of Eden) dirt / earth dimension the outer man ( the natural man)

could continued to live but now only by and from the earth from which he was taken. In this diminished kind of life great hardship awaited him in the dirt realm. Forgiveness of sins is the perceived goal of this simple and single element gospel! Our objection to this kind of "gospel" is that it falls short of the total regeneration necessary for a totally new creation to begin. Therefore, overcoming and fulfilling God's Predestined Plan is not possible. God's Predestined plan is subverted by this incomplete and cunterfeit gospel.

However, if we begin our gospel in Genesis 2 with the extraction of the female part from Adam so they could be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth, our gospel will be about winning souls and building up the numbers in the church. The perceived goal of this gospel is to win the multitudes to "salvation." Also in this gospel the position of the woman has changed from helper to wanting to rule over her husband! For that reason the husband/wife relationship becomes part of this two dimensional gospel. Our objection to this "gospel" is that even a proper experience between the husband and wife and "winning souls" could be far short of the "new creation" (image and likeness) that is essential to a fruitful Christian Life. Why? In our elevated gospel we link fruitfulness to overcoming and fulfillment which is the purpose of our "predestined salvation." Of course to accomplish that we must also "win souls." However, not just through forgiveness of sins but to begin the preparation for fulfilling God's Predestined Purpose. This requires of the Gospel of the Higher Calling!

Still, if we begin our gospel in Genesis one our focus will be upon God's purpose for man to have dominion over the earth and to rule over the things in it. This has become the basis of the modern concept concerning the Kingdom of God and has resulted in a "Dominion Theology." This "carnal concept" of the natural man ruling and having dominion over the present earth has, once again, begun to pervert the real Gospel of the Kingdom. Getting every Christian into some form of politics so "the righteous will rule" is the fulfillment of this poorly conceived "Gospel of the Kingdom." Why is this less than our gospel? That is because the perception is that since the Kingdom is the Government, each Christian must get involved in all aspects of our earthly government to establish the Kingdom on earth. Of course our objection to this "gospel" is the same. Why? God's ultimate authority is not even offered to the "born again man" who is still living in the flesh but is reserved only for the New Creation man that is being prepared to fulfill his predestined calling.

It is for that reason that we MUST begin the Gospel of the Kingdom BEFORE the foundation of the World and BEGIN our Gospel in the mind, purpose and Heart of God! We MUST begin with our complete and total confidence in the ability of God to bring about His Eternal Purpose! Therefore, we must re-examine everything from the Viewpoint of God's absolute Sovereignty, His unlimited Power, His Eternal Purpose and how God will establish His Eternal Government over the World yet to come. That means within the Eternal Tabernacle of God. Each of us must be prepared for the Eternal Kingdom Government of God now during the Christian Experience in this Life! This is what we are identifying as "our Predestined Calling." Is the lack of this ultimate preparation a present day crisis? Yes! It is that radical and extreme "Gospel of our complete Preparation," according to His Predestined Purpose, that we endeavor to preach.

How will that "predestined end" change our concept of the Gospel? It will place our emphasis upon a complete recovery of God's image and likeness rather than just upon forgiveness of sins or "winning souls" or ruling over the present earth.

But, brother, are you suggesting that forgiveness of sins or winning souls is not important? Not at all, but if we stop there we will fall short of God's Eternal Purpose. Why? While it is certainly true that God will give the Kingdoms "under the whole heaven" to the saints of the Most High it is also true that ALL DOMINIONS will serve and obey God. Our preparation to be able just to "serve and obey Him" is "our Big Job" during the church age!

Having our sins forgiven or even if we are out "winning souls" but if we have never grown up into Christ so we can obey God and do His will, a certain disappointment will surely await us.

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.'

Dan 7:27 '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.'

In this dimension of the Kingdom Dominion, EVERY saint will serve and obey

Him. In other words, every saint must return to image and likeness to regain that dominion. That is MUCH more than just receiving forgiveness of sins! Therefore, in that eternal realm it will require a complete transformation of the "natural man" into a spiritual and obedient person who is doing the whole will of God! This is what we are calling a "true Christian experience." This New Creation Person must develop into a Kingdom Person who can immediately serve and obey Him.

But, brother, is that really so important if we are "already saved?" My objection to that concept is with the term "already saved." While there may be a certain truth in that concept of forgiveness of sins, our focus has been upon overcoming, discovering our predestined calling, fulfilling God's Eternal Purpose and our personal preparation for the World yet to Come.

Our theory is that it is essential for our participation in God's Eternal Purpose that we return to image and likeness as part of our salvation! Why? That is because FLESH is totally eliminated from that eternal ream. For that reason those who are forgiven but still remain "in the flesh" can NEVER please God or do His will. Attaining to that maturity, with the inherent ability that enables us to do His will, is essential just to participate in this earth dimension of the Christian Life.

John 7:17 "If any man is willing to do His will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or whether I speak from Myself.

Just to be able to comprehend the Kingdom Gospel it is necessary to do His Will.

Mark 3:35 "For whoever does the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother."

It is essential that just to be in the family of God requires that we do the will of God.

Mat 7:21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but (ONLY) he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.

It seems obvious that just having the basic experience of "forgiveness of sins" falls far short of "doing His Father's Will." Most Christians never grow up to be able to know the will of God and, therefore, can never do His Will. From this we may conclude that GREAT disappointment may await many "Christians" who think "having our sins forgiven and going to heaven" is the ultimate goal of Jesus' sacrifice on Calvary.

2Cor 5:14 For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; 15 and He died for all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. 16 Therefore from now on we recognize no man according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17 Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature;(literally; A New Formation) the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

To imply that the old creation man can even be "in Christ" is a misunderstanding about what "salvation" really is. To receive forgiveness of sins and then continue to "live for ourselves" is unacceptable to God because of "His Ultimate Purpose."

Eph 5:25 ---- just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her; 26 that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,27 that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she should be holy and blameless.

1Peter 1:1 ----, who are chosen 2 according to the foreknowledge of God

the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, that you may obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with His blood: May grace and peace be yours in fullest measure. 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Our point is that forgiveness of sins is but the first step in a "salvation ready to be revealed in the last time." In other words; that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,27 that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she should be holy and blameless is much more than "forgiveness of sins" or "winning souls" or "functioning in politics." This indicates a "personal Christian maturity or perfection."

Our theory is that to use the thief on the cross, who died under the Old Covenant, as an example of New Covenant salvation, by forgiveness of sins, is a perversion of the facts. The "paradise" of the Old Covenant was Abraham's Bosom which was in the bowels of the earth or in the dirt dimension. The "paradise" of the New Covenant is seen in Revelation 22 and is in the Eternal Dimension.

While much more can be said and many other scriptures applied to New Covenant Salvation, it is our purpose to apply our "New Covenant Salvation" to include the Kingdom of God, God's Eternal Purpose and participation in the Government of the World yet to Come. In other words; Our "so Great a Salvation" must prepare us to fulfill God's Predestined End and what God had in His Heart BEFORE the Earth was restored to an inhabitable place. While that "eternal goal" remains and is valid today, there is an immediate goal of preparing a people to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to our generation. This represents our calling and the Big Job set before us! This "process of preparation of individual Christians"is what we are referring to as New Covenant Salvation that produces Disciples of the Kingdom. In my "radical gospel of preparation" I am insisting upon a universal Discipleship that results in a full maturity with an ability to minister ultimate Truth that includes every true believer!

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

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

Mark 16:15 And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 "He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17 "And these signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it shall not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."

Preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom to every nation has specific signs that are supposed to follow. We may wonder why this "other gospel" that is being currently preached is not producing these signs. My theory is that getting people "saved" by forgiveness of sins is not the same thing as making disciples of every nation.

Since "my gospel" is very radical and extreme I will attempt to share my "opinion" about Kingdom Salvation and why it must differ from the current "gospel." This popular gospel is based only upon our forgiveness of sins or based even upon basic Christian activities like attending the meetings.

In this study I will use returning to "IMAGE AND LIKENESS" and THEN full maturity as the goal of this Gospel of the Kingdom.

My theory will assume that without a restoration to image and likeness and at least basic maturity these signs will not follow our ministry at this point of time. Why? That is because doing these things in the flesh by the ministry of the natural man, who ministers by a natural understanding of the written scriptures, has come to a conclusion. My opinion is this; that dimension of ministry ended with the Charismatic restoration in 1985. Since then these signs have ceased to be commonly practiced. We are not saying that these signs have "passed away" but that they are not prominently displayed as often as we saw for that 15 years. Many of us saw and expected these signs to follow our "ministry" during the 15 years of the Charismatic renewal. During that point in time these things were real.

This is not a mystery. Why? The fact that these signs and miracles were possible at that time (and we witnessed most of them) is supported by this scripture in Matthew 7:21.

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.'

It is indisputable that these one who said Lord, Lord and acknowledged Jesus and

used His name actually did these signs and miracles. These signs actually did happen "in the name of Jesus." That is not questioned. They did not just "claim" that they did them, they really did these things! However, they did not do them out of obedience to the Divine Authority and, therefore, did them out of lawlessness. Even this was considered as "ministry" for many years by us and many others.

In other words; many of us really did those things during the Charismatic renewal from 1970 up until 1985 but that time has passed. Even though God permitted the signs and miracles to be that way, by way of gifts during that time, my understanding is we should have progressed beyond that dimension. All these things were common for many years before, in the Pentecostal Restoration beginning in1906.

It is my opinion that just operating in the "GIFTS" dimension was acceptable but is no longer acceptable because of our Predestined calling into God's Eternal Purpose. Why? That is because our personal disobedience, rebellion, self-serving and lawlessness cannot be permitted in the Kingdom Government of God! [all dominions will actually ONLY serve and obey Him] We are certainly NOT SAYING that the "gifts" no longer exist but that God now expects us to begin to function in the higher realms of "PRIESTHOOD LIFE."

Those who are "born again" but still function "in the flesh" can never please God. That is an eternal fact! This current and popular system of ministering in the flesh, by the natural man, out of the intellect, is a 'ministry" that must be avoided because it can no longer be accepted. However, gaining the experiential understanding and the ability to escape functioning in that deception is not easy to explain. Since I also was trapped in that deception for many years, my burden recently has been to "escape" from the bondage of that pitiful method of "ministry." This includes warning others to grow beyond that inadequate method that we are all familiar with.

While the "burden" to escape still exists I believe the solution is not so complicated nor is it so difficult to adjust to our actual predestined calling. The goal of Kingdom ministry is achieved when we cease ministering "more knowledge" out of the intellect and begin to "minister" out of the New Creation Inner Man, who is Spirit. "Ministering in the Spirit" then is very normal IF THE INNER MAN HAS COME TO SOME MEASURE OF MATURITY. My understanding is this; That is how we must function to participate in God's Predestined Purpose.

All this confusion began when we assumed that "maturity" meant that we were faithful to our doctrine, had learned a lot of scripture, had "ministered" for several months and had really eaten and learned from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Our maturity was based upon knowledge rather than being based ONLY upon having eaten from the Tree of Life. Our "ministry" may have been well received and successful in the visible realm but lacked the demonstration of Life necessary to cause the Kingdom message to be effective.

My opinion now is that the pitiful and comatose condition of the visible church is the direct result of this confusion suggesting that "growing in knowledge" was equivalent to "growing in maturity." This "phony idea of maturity" began with the professionally trained ministry and has resulted in a hierarchal type of unprepared leadership. This hierarchal type leadership / ministry can prosper today even without a New Creation Man or genuine maturity. Even if there is a born again experience and a new inner man in embryo form, that is no guarantee that the New Inner Man is mature enough to teach or to lead the church to maturity.

It is for that reason that I have developed the theory that the five-fold ministry in Ephesians 4:11 must be equipped to minister EXCLUSIVELY out of the New Inner Man and to cease from "ministering" out of the intellect. Why? That is because it is the full maturity of the new inner man that is necessary to bring the church to perfection or full maturity. That means; Until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the (full) knowledge (Epignosis) of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fulness of Christ.

I am assuming the Bible is true and that coming to that "full maturity" is certainly possible and is expected under the New Covenant Provision. I am defining "full maturity" as being able to speak (minister) completely out of the New Inner Man and NOT depend upon the brain, mind, intellect of the outer man to speak, prophesy, preach, function in the gifts or counsel. Even with the primary anointing that is UPON us, that was essential for the gifts and miracles to happen, we must advance to the inner anointing that teaches all things. My theory is that by this time, in the process of the restoration of all things, we should be exclusively ministering exclusively out of the Inner Anointing that Abides in us.

1John 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.

This is the anointing that Jesus was referring to when He said that the Holy Spirit would teach us and lead us into all Truth. The "anointing" when we received the Holy Spirit was "UPON us and is related to power.

I am insisting that this "inner anointing" is completely normal within the provision of the New Covenant and something defined by Paul in 1 Corinthians 14. Is this radical and extreme or is that the way God designed it to work? You must decide.

Our purpose in this document is to speak about the "next" restoration that is beginning NOW! We believe that this restoration of the Priesthood Ministry will demand a radical change in how and what we "minister." The time for the "talking points" type ministry ended several years ago. The lack of effectiveness of this type ministry is legendary but thank God it is coming to a final conclusion. The effectiveness of the ministry that is now being restored is inherently attached to the New Covenant.

One of the provisions of the New Covenant is for us to receive both a New Spirit and the Holy Spirit to dwell in us. The New Spirit is the Spirit of Christ which is the Living and Abiding Word of God. The "My Spirit" is the Holy Spirit.

Ezekiel 36:26 "Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 "And I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances.

It is by receiving the New Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, The Living and Abiding Word of God, that we are born of God. It is by receiving His Spirit, the Holy Spirit, that God can cause us to walk in His ways and keep His statutes and obey His ordinances. Jesus spent much time explaining to His disciples what would happen when the Holy Spirit was poured out upon and in them. The Holy Spirit was to come with a Sovereign authority to teach and lead them into ALL truth.

Act 10:44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who were listening to the message. 45 And all the circumcised believers who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out upon the Gentiles also. 46 For they were hearing them speaking with tongues and exalting God. Then Peter answered, 47 "Surely no one can refuse the water for these to be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we did, can he?"

Act 11:15 "And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them, just as He did upon us at the beginning. 16 "And I remembered the word of the Lord, how He used to say, 'John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.' 17 "If God therefore gave to them the same gift as He gave to us also after believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could stand in God's way?"

Obviously when Jesus taught them about the New Covenant provision of receiving the Baptism with the Holy Spirit He was referring to putting the Holy Spirit within them. At that time He obviously told them about receiving Tongues as the evidence. Why? Peter was not amazed that they began speaking in tongues! He instantly recognized that they received the Holy Spirit exactly the same all the believes did at first on the Day of Pentecost.

Even though this "evidence" has become very divisive and controversial it is, nevertheless, the evidence given in the Bible. Receiving TONGUES was also confirmed by Jesus, by Peter and certainly by Paul. Giving a clear explanation of WHY God has provided us with the ability to pray in other languages and to speak in tongues, which are given by the Holy Spirit, has not been made very clear to most of the believing church. Even after over 100 years of experience many questions remain.

Explaining this wonderful and tremendous gift and its absolute necessity for the next restoration of Priesthood Ministry is the focus of this document!

During the Charismatic outpouring million of believers received the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues. I also have been speaking in tongues since 1970. However, today multitudes of evangelicals along with many Pentecostal, see no purpose in the speaking with tongues. Therefore, I will give my opinion as to why this is valid and an essential element of the Christian Life and essential for ALL Christian Ministry in the next dimension.

The reason is quite simple and it involves the ability to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom out from the New Inner Man rather than be limited just to preaching out of the intellect. Evangelism by the Spirit means speaking out of the Spiritual provision given to the New Inner Man. Specifically, that means by the inner anointing that abides in us IF WE HAVE DEVELOPED THE NEW INNER MAN according to God's Predestined Plan.

We freely acknowledge that all the gifts functioned and were valid within the OUTER Anointing (upon) that has been functioning for 100 years. That dimension of the anointing, for the most part, was in the down payment dimension, since 1906. We are not denying the reality of any of that.

However, now we believe that a greater degree and accuracy of these gifts will be released by the next dimension of ministry. That higher realm of ministry is assigned to the ministry of the New Inner Man that is inherently linked to the Living Word of God AND to the Holy Spirit. This is what we are identifying as the "priesthood ministry."

The fact that the New Inner Man CAN speak, prophesy, give words of knowledge and words of wisdom, pray, preach, heal the sick and work miracles might be a little radical, extreme and controversial in normal church circles. I can accept that. Still, that is EXACTLY what God will expect from us in this next restoration. It is this dimension of ministry that we are relating to the Priesthood Ministry after the Order of Melchizedek.

We surely must acknowledge that those who only speak, minister, and preach out of the intellect might no longer please God. Especially, if the church is actually being restored in our day to the Corporate Priesthood ministry of the Holy Place. That means "WITHIN THE TENT!" Why? We will no longer be limited to the outer anointing of the Outer Court! We believe that God is advancing to the INNER ANOINTING which was provided for us in the New Covenant provisions spoken of by John.

1John 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.

This inner provision of both the Living and Abiding Word of God AND the Indwelling Holy Spirit was enacted at the time of Calvary. This provision is now being administrated by Christ Jesus, our Great High Priest after the Order of Melchizedek. What is the source of this "inner anointing?" That source is the Seven Spirits of God that fully illuminate the interior of the "tent."

My theory is that this Universal Priesthood Ministry by the Lampstand Church, the body of our High Priest, requires BOTH the World of God ( the Showbread) and the Holy Spirit (the illumination by the Seven Spirits of God.) It is this dual "inner anointing" that creates and permits the Priesthood Ministry to "bring the Outer Court believers into the Church He is Building." This means to the perfection that is necessary to make the transition from the "called out ones" to the Lampstand Church.

Act 10:38 "You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good, and healing all who were oppressed by the devil; for God was with Him.

Here we clearly see that the "anointed One" (Jesus) was "anointed by the Holy Spirit" (who is the Anointing) and Jesus is our Great High Priest who is functioning with the Priest of the Most High God, the Holy Spirit!

My radical opinion is that there is a BIG difference between "preaching ABOUT the Kingdom and preaching the Kingdom." In that same way there is a BIG difference between preaching ABOUT Christ and preaching CHRIST. Any of us can preach ABOUT something that may be true but only out from the new Inner Man, in the Spirit, can we preach the ultimate TRUTH directly from the Word of God by that inner anointing.

Therefore, let us examine this strange experience of "speaking in tongues" and try to understand why it is one of the most important "preparations" to equip us to participate in the New Covenant "ministry of the Spirit." This Gift is the pathway to ALL the Gifts.

2Cor 3:5 Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, 6 who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter, but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 7 But if the ministry of death, in letters engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the sons of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of the glory of his face, fading as it was, 8 how shall the ministry of the Spirit fail to be even more with glory?

It seems clear that those who minister out of the New Covenant provision will participate in the ministry of the Spirit. For that reason we will focus upon the reality of this New Covenant Ministry of the Spirit. Hopefully, we can overcome the "theoretical" realms and enter into the experiential and practical realms of the Holy Place ministry of the Spirit. I am speculating that "speaking from out of that realm" requires a different Kind of Speaking that is not limited to just speaking normal audible words!

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

Speaking these kinds of words, given by the Spirit, is firmly related to the New Covenant ministry. Any ministry less than this dimension must be considered a failure. However, speaking words "given by the Spirit" is the basic purpose of speaking in tongues.

1Cor 14:2 For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men, but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries.

1Co 14:4 One who speaks in a tongue edifies himself; but one who prophesies edifies the church.

1Co 14:5 Now I wish that you all spoke in tongues,

1Co 14:12 So also you, since you are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek to abound for the edification of the church. 13 Therefore let one who speaks in a tongue pray that he may interpret. 14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful.

1Co 14:15 What is the outcome then? I shall pray with the spirit and I shall pray with the mind also; I shall sing with the spirit and I shall sing with the mind also.

I have chosen these scriptures that specifically speak about the Gift of Tongues and some facts concerning their use. I will focus upon just certain verses that supports my idea about the ministry of the Spirit. I will focus directly upon the inner anointing that ABIDES in us and that teaches us ALL things. I insist that this is NOT strange but exactly what Jesus said would take place when the Holy Spirit came.

My theory about the "Ministry of the Spirit" or speaking words given by the Spirit, revolves around why God has given us this strange and confusing gift of speaking in tongues. I will not confuse the issue with all the strange objections to and misunderstandings about this "GIFT" that are so diverse, profuse and some are even profane.

When I speak in tongues, my spirit speaks but neither my intellect / mind / reasoning or doctrine is originating the words. Therefore, my mind no longer is the "SOURCE" of the words that are coming out of my mouth. Why? That is because I am speaking from that inner man realm where the mysteries abide. Of course, this is beyond human / natural understanding and that IS the source of much of the rejection of this method of speaking. I must insist that this "method of speaking" is absolutely normal and necessary within the New Covenant provision of the indwelling Holy Spirit and the New Anointing.

Since this GIFT of "speaking in tongues" is outside and beyond the human ability, the obvious "human" reaction is rejection. It is that "rejection" that has resulted in so many ridiculous and obscene objections to this essential and wonderful "GIFT" from God. The objection is that this is a worthless gift that God certainly made a big mistake when He gave it. Why? The natural man cannot understand it and is offended by it.

Paul says that when he is speaking in tongues, he is praying or singing "in the Spirit." He confirms that he can also pray or sing with the mind but that is in a different realm. Since "praying or singing with the mind" is easily understood and is so common, we will focus upon the other dimension of "speaking from out of the spirit by the Holy Spirit." This is the realm of the New Inner Man, the New Species, "ministering" by speaking directly from the Living and Abiding Word of God by the anointing of the Holy Spirit. This is the anointing that abides in us.

My theory is that the New Covenant provision permits this person of the New Species to "minister in the Spirit" and to SPEAK these "mysteries" from the Living and Abiding Word of God through the Indwelling Holy Spirit. These indwelling "Two Anointed Ones" are functioning together for this explicit function which we are calling the "ministry of the Spirit!

When one of us is praying or singing with / in or by the Holy Spirit, the words we speak are directly according to and in harmony with the Living and Abiding Word of God. Why? That is because the words are originating from that inner life realm. In other words these "mysteries" have no bearing upon our mind, our preconceived ideas, our doctrines or upon our human understanding.

1Cor 14:2 For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men, but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries.

With this use of tongues no one understands what is said. Why? That is because while in prayer he is speaking mysteries to God.

Therefore, just speaking in tongues or the Gift of Tongues is NOT the focus of this document. However, Speaking in Tongues is how we gain confidence and the ability to speak out of this inner realm of the Spirit. The purpose of this document is to explain how we develop our ability to preach or speak in our regular language, so others can understand, but while we are speaking out from this inner Spirit Realm. Why? That is because we must speak so everyone in the audience can understand what the Living and Abiding Word of God is saying to them. When we can preach "the Word of God" in that audible way, we become "Ministers of the New Covenant," not of the letter, but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

However, in this document I will focus upon how we achieve the "supernatural ability" to speak "spiritual words" out from this inner Life realm. My personal experience is that it is really true that the New Inner Man has the ability of speaking under the anointing of the indwelling Holy Spirit and to preach the words given by the Living Word of God. I am speculating that Jesus announced these things BEFORE He was taken up.

John 16:12 "I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 "But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 14 "He shall glorify Me; for He shall take of Mine, and shall disclose it to you. 15 "All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said, that He takes of Mine, and will disclose it to you.

When we are faithful to speak in tongues as much and as often as is possible tremendous things are taking place in the new inner man. [Even though the mind cannot perceive things in this realm] When we "speak in tongues' we are edifying or building up, strengthening, our new inner man. Speaking in tongues obviously does not edify the outer man so it must strengthen the new inner man. Why? Because he is the one speaking and being taught.

1Cor 14:4 One who speaks in a tongue edifies himself;

When we speak in tongues our inner man is being taught all kinds of things, he is being led into all Truth, he is receiving the Word of God directly from the Holy Spirit and all the things Jesus said would happen begin to happen. As the Holy Spirit hears He is faithful to share with us exactly what He hears. Who determines what He hears? The Living and the Abiding Word of God decides and then the Holy Spirit "takes of Mine, and will disclose it to you." The mysteries in the Word of God are revealed to the New Inner Man by the Spirit!

If this transaction is NOT taking place within the New Inner Man, [the New Species that has this built in capacity to participate in the New Covenant ministry] then the Christian ministry will certainly be disqualified and the church will suffer a severe loss. The restoration of this essential gift and function will be necessary for us to participate in the Priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek. Why? I am just speculating but I assume "speaking in tongues" has something to do with our basic preparation for the Holy Place ministry which functions under the direct illumination of the Seven Spirits of God!

So let us review how this New Covenant Provision actually operates in a practical way for us to begin to "preach the Kingdom" rather than being limited to just relating facts and information ABOUT the Kingdom. Hopefully, in this same way we can at last begin to "preach Christ" rather than just using "talking points" ABOUT Christ!

Part of our consecration is in sacrificing our natural ability "to do things for God" and to rely wholly upon God for our participation in the Holy Place Priesthood Ministry. Speaking in Tongues is our opportunity to set us free from total dependence upon our natural ability. That involves the mind, our intellect, our personality, our natural capacity to speak and deliver ?messages." This "GIFT" enables our new inner man to speak both to God AND for God wholly out of the provision He has supplied. Let me explain!

Since numerous local people along with the multitudes around the world have been speaking in tongues for well over 100 years, it now seems incredible that this simple explanation of this strange gift is really so easy to comprehend. Since the Bible, itself, reveals how this gift functions in very simple and clear terms, I am embarrassed to admit that I never understood it before. It has made me feel self-conscious and ashamed' now after all these years, to understand the tremendous magnitude and essential nature of this gift and how it relates to the Priesthood Ministry of the Spirit.

1Cor 14:14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. (Has become barren) 15 What is the outcome then? I shall pray with the spirit and I shall pray with the mind also; I shall sing with the spirit and I shall sing with the mind also.

2Cor 13:3 since you are seeking for proof of the Christ who speaks in me, and who is not weak toward you, but mighty in you.

These two verses contain the substance of what this gift is designed to accomplish. It is by this provision of speaking in tongues that My New Inner Man who is Spirit suddenly has the ability to speak without the benefit of my mind or other intellectual capacities. My "Spirit" is now independent of my natural limitations and now Christ, the Living and Abiding Word of God, can SPEAK IN ME. I can hardly write (because of my deep emotion) when I realize the magnitude of this tremendous fact because now many other scriptures begin to make sense.

John 14:9 Jesus *said to him, "Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how do you say, 'Show us the Father'? 10 "Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. 11 "Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me; otherwise believe on account of the works themselves. 12 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to the Father.

1Co 2:11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God, 13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.

1Co 14:18 I thank God, I speak in tongues more than you all; 19 however, in the church I desire to speak five words with my mind, that I may instruct others also, rather than ten thousand words in a tongue. 20 Brethren, do not be children in your thinking; yet in evil be babes, but in your thinking be mature. 21 In the Law it is written, "BY MEN OF STRANGE TONGUES AND BY THE LIPS OF STRANGERS I WILL SPEAK TO THIS PEOPLE, AND EVEN SO THEY WILL NOT LISTEN TO ME," says the Lord.

When we are ministering to people, the God given way is for us to clearly speak in the language of the people so they can be clearly instructed. Paul is in NO WAY negating tongues as is so commonly and ignorantly preached. He is merely pointing out the difference in LANGUAGES and which one is used for public instruction.

The power in this verse is that God speaks to people through persons who speak in tongues. Even though this verse is very clear and revealing the fact that people still speak in tongues is rejected, ignored, criticized, mocked and "religious people" still today will not listen. However, even a casual reading of verse 18 should confirm that speaking in tongues and God speaking to His people are integrally connected.

This duality of ministry (men speaking in tongues and God speaking) is the point of this document and the explanation of how it works in practical experience is what follows.

This revolutionary way of speaking is limited to the New Covenant. No one spoke in tongues before the first Pentecost. Even today the people who speak in tongues are experiencing, in a practical way, how to speak the mysteries, that were formerly hidden, out of the Spirit. This inner revelation of the mysteries is ascribed to those who speak in tongues. Speaking the mysteries is speaking out of the inner recesses of the new inner man and precludes or rules out the limitation of speaking with the mind. Speaking in tongues is either permitting our spirit to speak to speak with God OR they permit THE HOLY SPIRIT to speak to people. Either is included in that verse because spirit is not capitalized in the Greek. For example; "But in the "spirit" I am speaking mysteries."

Since none of this is complicated, we must assume that those who refute or refuse these verses are functioning just out of the mind / intellect and out of the natural man realm. Why? That is because the natural man receives and understands NOTHING from the spiritual realm.

Nevertheless, we expect much more from those who read these documents. Therefore, we will proceed with our "simple explanation" of ministering WORDS, using our normal every day language, but which do NOT originate with us. These "spiritual words" originate in that very realm from which the gift of tongues originate and are spoken with our normal speaking equipment. Nevertheless, the "words" are not originated by us but are spoke by us.

Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and (they) began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.

They spoke in tongues means they were doing the speaking BUT it was the Holy

Spirit that was giving them the words to speak.

The more we speak in tongues the greater our confidence that what we are speaking is NOT coming from our mind / brain / intellect / or natural reasoning but is coming from the inner recesses of our new inner man. Our confidence is that it is the Holy Spirit that is giving us the words.

After speaking in tongues for over 45 years I find "speaking in tongues" to be very normal for the new species of man, who is called CHRISTIAN! Even though my "language in tongues varies" it has been consistent over the years. During this time my confidence has increased so there is no doubt left that I am speaking out from the Spirit. However, at the present time, all this speaking is being redirected to "speaking and writing in English" those words given by the Holy Spirit.

However, in the beginning, most of us limited our experience to speaking tongues or to interpretation or to "praying in the spirit." For most all Charismatic and Pentecostal people that has been the limitation THEY have placed upon the "gift" for the last 100 years.

In this next restoration this "limitation" must be overcome and we must advance to the confidence that God can and will speak to HIS people through this "advanced" method of communication. How do we know that? That is simply because THIS WAS GOD's ORIGINAL PREDESTINED PLAN that was prophesied through Isaiah in Chapter 28.

Isaiah 28:9 "To whom would He teach knowledge? And to whom would He interpret the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just taken from the breast? 10 "For He says, 'Order on order, order on order, Line on line, line on line, A little here, a little there.'" 11 Indeed, He will speak to this people Through stammering lips and a foreign tongue, 12 He who said to them, "Here is rest, give rest to the weary," And, "Here is repose," but they would not listen. 13 So the word of the LORD to them will be, "Order on order, order on order, Line on line, line on line, A little here, a little there," That they may go and stumble backward, be broken, snared, and taken captive.

This IS the verses that Paul was directly associating with speaking in tongues. The first

thing we perceive is that a certain maturity precedes this New Covenant blessing of God speaking to His people by this heavenly method. God is not speaking in this way through babes in Christ, even though babes in Christ can obviously "speak in tongues" as we learn in 1 Corinthians.

This "rest for the people of God" that was promised is obviously linked to speaking in tongues. Still, after speaking in tongues for over 45 years, I never had the confidence that I had "entered into that rest." Finally, I think I have the logical explanation and that is called "ministering in the Spirit" when we cease ministering out of our own effort and permit God to speak directly to His people through us. He cannot do that as long as we confine"ministry" to notes, to memory or to the intellectual methods of speaking. Most of the time men speak but God is silent!

God's plan is that every person (who has been born of God and is in the mature church) should be prepared as a disciple who can preach the gospel and minister the Word of God. That means anyone speaking out from this new inner man realm, by the Spirit, is NOT limited by human inability or intellectual weakness. Even ignorant and unlearned fishermen can function in this way. When we recognize the tremendous difference in speaking ability, scriptural understanding, intellectual acumen and social standing among believers, it is clear that natural abilities MUST be ruled out of the Holy Place Ministry.

It is this "difference" that has caused us to foolishly demand a "professional ministry" that is ordained to minister "in place of the whole body of Christ." For that reason (the pulpit ministry) the body is not being equipped to minister "in the Spirit" according to the New Covenant provision.

While all this advanced Ministry of the Spirit presently appears to be impossible, my opinion is that this is not only possible but required for every son of the High Priest who will minister according to the Priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek. Since this ministry BEGINS in the Holy Place, it does not include those babes just drawn from the breast but does includes anyone who can and does make the transition into the Holy Place Life and Ministry. This is what we are referring to as "this Next Restoration." The Holy Place in the Tabernacle of Moses reveals the hidden inside realm of our "Tabernacle or tent." This understanding of the present holy place refers to the "inner recesses of the New Inner Man where the Living and Abiding Word of God AND the Holy Spirit resides. The real Holy Place Priesthood Ministry originates in THEM. The New Covenant Priesthood ministry to people ascends from the Word and the Spirit.

If Jesus didn't speak out from His own initiative, it is reasonable to assume that His body, the body of the High Priest, would not speak out of their own ability or initiative. The words Jesus spoke were given by the Father so that when Jesus was speaking it was really the Father speaking and doing His works.

In my emerging understanding I am convinced; THAT IS HOW THE NEW COVENANT MINISTRY WAS DESIGNED TO WORK. Will God speak directly to His People today? Yes! According to the scriptures that is exactly his purpose today. How will He do that? Through the New Covenant ministry? How do we define that? As the Ministry after the Order of Melchizedek! How will He speak? Through those who speak in tongues.

Since Melchizedek was the Old Testament appearance of the Holy Spirit in bodily form, we should learn very much about this "higher spiritual dimension" of the New Covenant Priesthood that is after the Order f Melchizedek.

Since Melchizedek was the PRIEST OF THE MOST HIGH GOD, those who function in that order are also "priests of God, most high." Christ Jesus, Our Great High Priest, who was taken from among men, was the first of this New Covenant priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek. He now sits at the Right Hand of God, Most High. God, now has His Man, the Last Adam, who will rule over all the works of His hands.

At the present time God, the Father, is preparing a mature bride for Jesus. She will surely function in eternity as the Body of our Great High Priest! She was taken from Christ and is being completed FOR JESUS, the CHRIST! She is now being perfected so she can be presented as the bride TO CHRIST JESUS but without spot or wrinkle, with everything removed that will prevent her from being holy and blameless!

Until the Father has completed the work of Perfecting A Bride for Jesus NO END TIME PROPHESIES ARE COMPLETELY FULFILLED. Until His Bride is Prepared and COMPLETE to the full number of perfected saints, most of these end time prophesies are just fantasy! Even today is it correct to assume that the wedding in Revelation 19 can NEVER take place with a baby bride? (Those just weaned from milk? Those just taken from the breast? ) No! God, the Father, will present a full grown and perfected bride to Jesus, the Last Adam, to be His wife.

Together, they will be fruitful and obedient and rule over the World yet to Come. Ruling over the Eternal Tabernacle of God requires a functioning Priesthood after the Order f Melchizedek. Jesus and His bride begin their function together in Revelation 19.

Rev 19:11 And I saw heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True; and in righteousness He judges and wages war. 12 And His eyes are a flame of fire, and upon His head are many diadems; and He has a name written upon Him which no one knows except Himself. 13 And He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood; and His name is called The Word of God.

Rev 19:14 And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. 15 And from His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may smite the nations; and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. 16 And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, "KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS."

Song of Solomon 6:8 "There are sixty queens and eighty concubines, And maidens without number; 9 But my dove, my perfect one, is unique: She is her mother's only daughter; She is the pure child of the one who bore her. The maidens saw her and called her blessed, The queens and the concubines also, and they praised her, saying, 10 'Who is this that grows like the dawn, As beautiful as the full moon, As pure as the sun, As awesome as an army with banners?'

Is this a radical, extreme and ridiculous gospel in your own opinion? Maybe this gospel is

not for you. However, if this Gospel of the Kingdom does sound reasonable how should you begin? First you MUST begin with a genuine and complete Baptism with the Holy Spirit that enables you to speak freely in tongues. These tongues are not strained or forced but flow freely up out of the New Inner man.

However, if no tongues are possible the problem is NOT with the tongues but that there is NO New Inner Man. If there is NO new inner man, neither the indwelling Holy Spirit nor the Living and Abiding Word of God has a place to dwell. Therefore, speaking in genuine tongues is not possible.

I have made that mistake many times when I prayed for many who had no basis to receive the Holy Spirit because they had not yet received the Living and Abiding Word of God so they had not yet begun with a New Inner Man. I foolishly assumed that EVERYONE who asked would receive until I realized there was no place prepared for the Holy Spirit to reside.

AFTER you receive BOTH the Word of God AND The Holy Spirit and begin to speak in tongues the process begins so we can pray or speak in tongues any time we decide. Now we must pray and speak in tongues as often and as long as possible until each of us develops a total and complete assurance that you can freely speak out from the New Inner Man, words given by the Holy Spirit. Then you can begin to practice speaking the Word of God, by the inner anointing of the Holy Spirit, in your regular native language. This first speaking from the inner Spirit Realm the words given by the Spirit is called prophesy. This is given in you regular language. The difference in this restoration is that these words ONLY originate in the Holy Spirit. After this it is appropriate to begin speaking from the Spirit in doing evangelism in your native language! No notes are necessary and no other preparation is necessary other than knowing first the written Word of God and second understanding God's Eternal Purpose for the World yet to Come. These two dimensions of preparation are designed to be completed by the "five-fold ministries" when they are equipping the saints to minister. Any other "ministry" becomes irrelevant simply because the saints never get "equipped" to do anything.

This pitiful condition in the visible church is the result of a failed ministry. However, this

silly system is not how God has designed the church or the ministry to work. Of course the professional ministry will never agree with this evaluation. Why? It is way too radical and extreme! ( and it would eliminate their office)

Well, God knows my heart, I would speak in tongues if I could, but I can't! Why? I am just a sinner saved by grace and have no interest in anything more. Besides, I believe in Super Grace where NOTHING is required of me except to believe something about Jesus. To be expected to speak in tongues is too extreme and besides I always want to know what I am saying, otherwise I might be cursing or blaspheming the Holy Spirit. I can't take that chance.

Then let your opportunity to function in the New Covenant Priesthood dimension fade away and die.

Isa 28:13 (my interpretation) So the word of the LORD to you will be, "Order on order, order on order, Line on line, line on line, A little here, a little there," That you may go and stumble backward, be broken, snared, and taken captive. "Here, in this dimension of speaking in tongues, is the refreshing," but you would not listen.

The danger of not advancing to this next dimension of Holy Place ministry is being ignored at the present time. The failure of "ministries" to limit themselves just to the "ministry of the Spirit" will soon be evident when the "ministry of the Spirit" becomes normal and the Holy Place Life and Ministry begins to function!

This wonderful and valuable Gift of Tongues has been misunderstood, nearly universally, since 1906 and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The Pentecostal Restoration that began in 1906 has nearly died but can be restored when we finally begin to use the Gift of Tongues as the essential preparation for the functioning Lampstand Church. This gift of "speaking in tongues" is fundamental to being equipped to Speak the Word of God under the advanced and more intimate Anointing of the Holy Spirit! In this next restoration we will be very comfortable in speaking the Word directly from the Holy Spirit and in our native language. It is then that God will speak to His People and His People will quickly recognize the difference between that and what we hear being preached today.

2Cor 3:5 Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, 6 who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter, but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

2Cor 3:7 But if the ministry of death, in letters engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the sons of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of the glory of his face, fading as it was, 8 how shall the ministry of the Spirit fail to be even more with glory? 9 For if the ministry of condemnation has glory, much more does the ministry of righteousness abound in glory. 10 For indeed what had glory, in this case has no glory on account of the glory that surpasses it.

It is my opinion that the Glorious Ministry of the Spirit will be very normal

for the Glorious Church. Why? That is because of the Illumination of the Lampstand Church by the Seven Spirits of God!

This phony ministry of the flesh and the limitation of the natural man will soon have NO GLORY because of the Glorious Ministry of the Spirit that exposes it.

But, brother, isn't the ministry you are talking about just limited to the "called ministry?" No! This IS THE MINISTRY OF THE BODY OF OUR GREAT HIGH PRIEST AND THE PRIESTHOOD AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK!

Until we can accept exactly what God has permitted to be included in the Written Word, it is not likely that we will understand very much of what is being revealed by the Living and Abiding Word of God. However, radical and extreme that appears to be in this "twilight" it is certain that all these things will appear normal under the intense illumination of the Seven Spirits of God.
