The Kingdom Of God is Made up of Areas
The New Earth
The New Heaven
The New Jerusalem
Mount Zion and the Throne of God
April 7, 2018
The Kingdom Is In Heaven but is now being formed on Earth! It will be a absolute reality in Eternity. As long as there has been GOD there has been His Government and as long as God exists there will be His Kingdom Government. It is God’s will that rules over the Universe.
God created man to rule over the Works of His Hands, in eternity. Eternity is made up of areas 1. On New Earth 2. In the New Heaven 3. In The New Jerusalem 4. On Mount Zion, the Throne of God!
When we speak of the Origins of the Kingdom we are NOT referring to “day one” or to some specific time when it all began! God’s Kingdom Government has always existed. The Bible calls it the Kingdom of Heaven.
The Kingdom of Heaven has always existed! It had no beginning and it has no ending because it is eternal. The Kingdom originates within God, Himself, and He is its Ultimate Government! Since God cannot be modified or changed, His Kingdom is Absolute and Unchangeable!
The Kingdom of God cannot and must not be modified by man to make it more acceptable to fallen humanity! It is fallen humanity that must be transformed to become compatible with the Kingdom and NOT the other way around. The Kingdom always “was” and it “is” and it ever “shall be.”
God and His Kingdom are ONE and His Government cannot be separated from
His Person. Since the Kingdom is much more radical and demanding than has been thought or taught by the visible church, the Kingdom must be defined by its Eternal Origin and by its Sovereign King!
It is during the church age and in each generation that His Kingdom work of preparation must be completed, in mankind . Every day must count toward our Kingdom preparation and any wasted day, where no change is experienced, may severely alter our eternal destiny. Why? That is because the Kingdom Government of God and His Sovereign Laws must be experientially worked into our life. God must “work in us” to establish His Government, functionally working it into our experience. Why? The Kingdom is not just a doctrine we learn but it IS a subjective Government that we must grow into by our obedience to it! How? It comes as Life!
His absolute government must make an absolute change and transformation in our life to make us able to obey it. How do we begin? That is by our obedience to His Laws. Why is this specifically relevant for the church today? That is because, ever since the fall of man, man has lost all ability to obey God because of man’s fallen characteristics. We must be busy removing all these fallen characteristics and inabilities that prevent us from our obedience, through the real, life altering experiences of the Foundations! This is crucial to our obedience!
How do experiencing the foundations work toward our obedience? By their
elimination of negative things from our lives that came through the fall of man! We call this process; “REVERSING THE FALL!” We must, also, reverse the errors of past generations of preaching irrelevant things by preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom as the New Covenant Gospel! Why?
It is the Kingdom of God message that must turn us from a “redemption consciousness”, through forgiveness of sins, to a “Kingdom consciousness” in which His Laws and Government becomes a real subjective “inner life” experience! The Kingdom must first become an “inner life” experience before we can obey, outwardly, its Laws and Statutes.
The Kingdom of God message must turn us from the overemphasis upon our “repentance and forgiveness of sins” to refocus our existence upon “His Absolute Government and Sovereign Reign over every aspect of our life.” The Kingdom must come to have first place in our consciousness.
We must refocus our Kingdom message to the church from “believing
in Him” to “serving and obeying Him” within a genuine experience of His Kingdom Government in the new inner man.
It is because of the lack of the Kingdom Message that we have a severe shortage of Kingdom Ministers! Since there are so few Kingdom Ministers there is also a severe shortage of the Kingdom Message. It is these TWO deficiencies in the visible church that are responsible for the lukewarm, casual and carnal church system that we see! The visible church has failed God by not preparing an earthly Redeemed People to govern according to His Eternal Plan and Purpose that has been revealed by the Scripture!
Even though we have shared these things many times and in several past documents, it is essential that everybody is fully informed about how they may participate in Eternity Future and in the world yet to come!
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.'
The Scriptures say “Will be” has been added and is not in the original text so it
really says “His Kingdom IS Everlasting.” This puts the Kingdom in the present tense rather in the future tense, sometime. All the dominions will serve and obey Him is in the present tense. This is why we refer to the Kingdom of God as our present experience during the Church age. Jesus said the Kingdom is within you!
Dan 7:13 "I kept looking in the night visions, And behold, with the clouds of
Heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, And He came up to the Ancient of Days And was presented before Him. 14 "And to Him was given Dominion, Glory and a Kingdom, That all the peoples, nations, and men of every language Might serve Him. His Dominion is an Everlasting Dominion Which will not pass away; And His Kingdom is one which will not be destroyed.
Of course, this is speaking about the resurrection when Jesus received the Kingdom. Therefore, the Kingdom is both designed for and intended for the Church Age; “That all the peoples, nations, and men of every language Might serve Him.” His Dominion was given over all peoples during the Church Age! In fact He was given all authority over both Heaven and earth and He is now reigning until every enemy is put under His feet. His feet (the feet of our Great High Priest) is in His functioning body.
Dan 2:44] "And in the days of those kings the God of Heaven will set up a
Kingdom which will never be destroyed, and that Kingdom will not be left for another people; it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever.
The prophets were speaking of a future Kingdom that was to be established, that would be administrated by the people of God. It is very important that we add this “excerpt” from Act 3 to reinforce my “theory” that EVERYTHING the prophets spoke must be restored (to the church) BEFORE Jesus can return.
Act 3:18 "But the things which God announced beforehand by the mouth of all the prophets, that His Christ should suffer, He has thus fulfilled. 19 "Repent therefore and return, that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; 20 and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, 21 whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time.
The first part of this prophesy HAS BEEN FULFILLED, therefore, the last part must also be fulfilled.
We could assume from this that “if EVERYTHING the prophets spoke” had not yet been restored, the Lord would not return to this earth until these words were fulfilled. It seems clear that “EVERYTHING the prophets spoke” has not yet been fulfilled, therefore, the heavens still retain Jesus.
If EVERYTHING had been fulfilled, Jesus would have returned. Of course, the prophesies concerning the first coming have been fulfilled and Jesus came!
It is true that Israel became a state in 1946 but these are not the only prophesies that must be fulfilled. The question we are raising is this; Has His Kingdom Government been manifested in His saints or must we wait until the millennial reign? Is the Kingdom inward or just outward?
However, this “manifested Kingdom” (when it is manifested) will be an extension of the Kingdom of Heaven and God’s Total Government! It is that “extended Kingdom” which has now been given to God’s Firstborn Son. He is, now, the Reigning King of this Kingdom. The Kingdom of Heaven is the real and the Eternal Kingdom of God. Why?
That is because the Son eventually gives His Kingdom to the Father so that God becomes the All in all. It is that Eternal Kingdom of Heaven that Jesus said to pray for, that it would “come to earth and that the Will of God would be done on the earth in the same measure it is being done in Heaven.
This can only happen if the Kingdom, that is available now, becomes a subjective Kingdom Government within the fully redeemed people of God! However, BOTH the Kingdom experience, combined with the New Covenant experience, establishes the Christian Life! Why?
Without the New Covenant experience there can be NO Kingdom Experience. That is why the Old Covenant could only announce the Kingdom but could NOT provide the Kingdom as a genuine LIFE experience! It is only the New Covenant that can provide an inner life that can support and obey the Kingdom Experience. Why?
Jeremiah 31:31 "Behold, days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a New Covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, 32 not like the Covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My Covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them," declares the LORD. 33 "But this is the Covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days," declares the LORD, "I will put My Law within them, and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 "And they shall not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them," declares the LORD , "for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more."
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.
Heb 8:8 For finding fault with them, He says, "BEHOLD, DAYS ARE COMING, SAYS THE LORD, WHEN I WILL EFFECT A NEW COVENANT WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND WITH THE HOUSE OF JUDAH; 9 NOT LIKE THE COVENANT WHICH I MADE WITH THEIR FATHERS ON THE DAY WHEN I TOOK THEM BY THE HAND TO LEAD THEM OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT; FOR THEY DID NOT CONTINUE IN MY COVENANT, AND I DID NOT CARE FOR THEM, SAYS THE LORD. 10 "FOR THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD: I WILL PUT MY LAWS INTO THEIR MINDS, AND I WILL WRITE THEM UPON THEIR HEARTS. AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. 11 "AND THEY SHALL NOT TEACH EVERYONE HIS FELLOW CITIZEN, AND EVERYONE HIS BROTHER, SAYING, 'KNOW THE LORD,' FOR ALL SHALL KNOW ME, FROM THE LEAST TO THE GREATEST OF THEM. 12 "FOR I WILL BE MERCIFUL TO THEIR INIQUITIES, AND I WILL REMEMBER THEIR SINS NO MORE." 13 When He said, "A New Covenant," He has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear.
Hebrews 10:15 And the Holy Spirit also bears witness to us; for after
saying, 16 "THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD:I WILL PUT MY LAWS UPON THEIR HEART, AND UPON THEIR MIND I WILL WRITE THEM," He then says, 17 "AND THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS DEEDS I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE."
Isa 59:20 "A Redeemer will come to Zion, And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob," declares the LORD. Isa 59:21 "As for Me, this is My covenant with them," says the LORD: "My Spirit which is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your offspring, nor from the mouth of your offspring's offspring," says the LORD, "from now and forever."
Luke 22:15 And He said to them, "I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; 16 for I say to you, I shall never again eat it until it is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God." 17 And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He said, "Take this and share it among yourselves; 18 for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine from now on until the kingdom of God comes." 19 And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is My Body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me." 20 And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup which is poured out for you is the New Covenant in My Blood.
The New Covenant begins as a removal from the heart of those things inherited from first Adam (a heart of stone) and then provides the addition of NEW THINGS. God forgives sins and iniquities Before He puts a New Spirit in us! Then, in addition to the New Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, He puts His Spirit in us. It is by these additions that God can begin to cause us to walk in His Ways. But when did this New Covenant begin?
This Covenant was ratified at Calvary and began when Jesus carried and sprinkled His Own Blood on the Mercy Seat in Heaven. Now, at last, God can add to the basic New Covenant Provision, another essential dimension!
This dimension arrived WITH THE REDEEMER when He returned from Heaven! For 40 days He dwelt with His disciples to confirm the New Covenant experiences! How? He spent 40 days preaching and explaining the Kingdom of God to His disciples. Why didn’t He do that before Calvary?
That was because the possibility of participating in the Kingdom must wait until the New Covenant was ratified and become available to His Disciples.
This is what became available; It is called Pentecost, the Feast following Passover! That is when this prophesy became reality. In John 20:22 Jesus had blown His Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, into them and they were born again. Now, the next part of the prophesy came.
I WILL PUT MY SPIRIT WITHIN YOU AND I WILL CAUSE YOU TO WALK IN MY WAYS, SO YOU WILL BE CAREFUL TO KEEP MY STATUTES AND ORDINANCES AND DO THEM!
This was announced but must wait the ten days until Pentecost. Then, both the Spirit of Christ AND the Holy Spirit was added to their New Covenant experience!
Therefore, both the New Covenant experiences, combined with the Kingdom Government of God, is the key to experiencing the Isaiah 59 portion of the New Covenant. It is this portion of the New Covenant that is still waiting to be fulfilled. Even though this may already be the experience of very few, this reality has not yet become a “RESTORATION” experienced by “all His Offspring or the offspring of the offspring.
I believe that The Heavens MUST retain Jesus until EVERYTHING the prophets spoke is fulfilled.
Act 3:19 "Repent therefore and return, that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; 20 and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, 21 Whom Heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time.
It is for that reason that it seems plausible that Jesus will NOT return until this prophecy of Isaiah 59 is fulfilled. Of course, many say this prophesy has already been fulfilled. It is true that all the provision has been made. It is the manifestation, the experience, of the reality that I question, has this happened yet?.
This is a major prophesy that will have a tremendous impact upon the church and a tremendous manifestation to the nations of the earth.
Since the Gospel of the Kingdom is just now (2018) being restored to the church, I am speculating that this prophecy is directly linked to the New Covenant and to the Experience of the Kingdom Government of God, in full restoration within the Church, that He is building!
Even though the REDEEMER has already “come to Zion” the rest of this prophesy has not yet been restored in fulness! Let us look at the details of the prophecy to see what the church should SOON be experiencing.
Remember that this is a NEW COVENANT that God has already made, through Calvary, with those who have truly repented! (those who turn from transgression in Jacob). This COVENANT becomes an absolute. God has not revoked this NEW COVENANT! It goes into Eternity with us!
Isa 59:20 "And a Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from transgression in Jacob," declares the LORD. 21 "And as for Me, (the Lord) this is My Covenant with them," says the LORD: "My Spirit which is upon you, (the Redeemer) and My Words which I have put in Your (the Redeemer) mouth, shall not depart from Your (the Redeemer) mouth, nor from the mouth of Your offspring, nor from the mouth of Your offspring's offspring," says the LORD, "from now and forever."
The same Spirit that was on the Redeemer and the same Word God put in His mouth, will by NEW COVENANT, be also upon those who “turn” from their transgressions! This measure of the New Covenant ( the word and the Spirit) has not yet been restored to the church! My theory is that since this is by COVENANT each of us should be expecting that it will happen in our generation. According to these verses, this manifestation should be universal among ALL true believers.
If this is NOT happening, why is it not?
The principle of Heaven is that everybody, that is now in Heaven, is doing the Will of God! If anyone is not willing to do the Will of God, they certainly cannot be citizens of Heaven. Therefore, the minimum requirement for dwelling in Heaven is this: We must do the whole Will of God. Why? All those who do not want God to rule over them will suddenly find themselves in another dwelling place!
We might ask the question; Why would anyone not want God to rule over them? Would there ever be such a group?
The answer is, yes, and in every generation and even in the Millennial Kingdom of Christ there will be those who refuse to permit Christ to rule over them!
Satan and about 1/3 of the angels decided to initiate another counterfeit system where Satan would exalt himself and attempt to set his throne above the stars of God. Of course, for this he was thrown out of Heaven.
It is this reality that is an objective fact and a stark example to ALL others who choose that path of individualism. It is here, in this life, that we learn to reverse these facts and to walk in obedience to God and His Laws and Government! Any groups that are not pressing their way into full obedience are following the wrong path and the wrong king and will miss their eternal calling!
Isa 14:12 "How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, you who have weakened the nations!  "But you said in your heart, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north.  `I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.'  "Nevertheless you will be thrust down to Sheol, to the recesses of the pit.
“WILL BE” means in the future. All those who align themselves with Satan and his character of anarchy and rebellion against the Government and Purpose of God, will be thrown out of God’s Presence! They all will find their place with Satan in the “recesses” of the pit of hell.
“But what about those who “believe something about Jesus?”
Those who are “true believers” will believe the “right thing about Who Jesus really is” and, therefore, will surrender their life to serve and obey Him and seek for Him to reign in them and over them. They will believe, until they are able to walk in obedience, as we see in John 3:36.
We should see these Scriptures from the viewpoint of the New Covenant and the Kingdom of God!
John 3:36 "He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son shall not see Life, but the wrath of God abides on him."
It is amazing how this verse is ignored by the gospel of salvation, that many
pervert by teaching that “grace” is our substitute for obedience! This error declares that because of God’s Grace, we no longer need to obey because; “Obedience is just “works” that can never “save us.” A simple reading of Scriptures reveals the horrendous lie and deception of this error.
Heb 5:8] Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered.  And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the Source of eternal salvation.
If we could identify the work of the devil and his history in past eternity, we might understand the conflict we experience during this church age! Sometime, in eternity past, the devil, his angels and his people (sons) possessed the earth and its cities. However, during this dispensation that began in Genesis one, these former spirits, now without bodies, that inhabited the world before this one, “must not arise and take possession of the earth and fill the face of the world with cities." Why? That is what destroyed the world before this one!
Isa 14:20 You have slain your people. May the offspring of evildoers not be mentioned forever.  "Prepare for his sons a place of slaughter because of the iniquity of their fathers. They must not arise and take possession of the earth and fill the face of the world with cities."
In the present Kingdom age [in this church age] all possible, future rebellion and anarchy must be solved by His Government and the inner working of God in men’s lives, TODAY! Why? That is because in the Eternal Kingdom EVERYONE must serve and obey Him or be cast out of God’s Presence.
In the Eternal Kingdom, even those who dwell on the New Earth will joyfully live under the absolute Kingdom Government of God and joyfully do His Will. How do we know that? Because all the others will be put in another place where the multitudes, assign to that terrible place, will have the same attitude and character of rebellion and anarchy! In the Millennial Reign, these rebellious souls will be identified and their destruction will follow!
Now, Jesus warns all the people by parable; if you intend to make that place your eternal home, to make as many friends as possible among those people now so that when you fail, in this life, you can be among friends there!
Following the Millennial Kingdom there will be a final resurrection but none of the rebellious will be resurrected to take possession of the earth ever again.
There will never be cities established, anywhere in the New Earth, that will be in rebellion against the Kingdom Government of God.
Obviously, we see this rebellion in the current attitude and experience of the world today! Why? Nearly all people are in rebellion against God and refuse to let Him rule over them.
What is the solution?
Preach the Kingdom AND the consequences! Why? These “attitudes” must be solved now, in this life! Why? Everybody must do the Will of God NOW! Why? His Will must be done on this earth just to qualify as members of His family!
In the world yet to come; even the New Earth will be Heaven because the Will of God will be done! The Kingdom of Heaven will extend to the New Earth, the New Heaven and His governmental laws, which will originate in Mount Zion, will be obeyed.
Satan started his career in heaven as a high profile person and in a very high position of authority but because of rebellion and disobedience he was thrown out of heaven. Why? That is because he didn’t want God to rule over him.
Luke 19:14 "But his citizens hated him, and sent a delegation after him, saying, `We do not want this man to reign over us.'  "But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence."
Some of these parables give us tremendous insight into the Government of God and His Absolute Sovereignty.
Just this basic principle of Christ ruling over our life, during this time of apprenticeship training for eternity, will determine our eternal destiny. Why is this important? Multitudes are being “half-saved, by forgiveness of sins” who are never told about the Kingdom of God and the reign of Jesus Christ now over those who claim to be His citizens or in verse 13 (from His viewpoint)His slaves.
Just to be included in His family it is essential that we do the Will of God.
Becoming “HIS SLAVES” (His bond-servants) is NOT a negative thing but is the path to Zion. This transaction takes place at the Consecration Offering, in the Outer Court dimension of the Tabernacle of God!
However, those who did not want Me to reign over them,” will be very disappointed when the final judgement is given.
“Bring them here and slay them in My presence" seems very severe to the half-saved.
Mat 12:50 "For whoever does the Will of My Father Who is in Heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother."
In most every church today this would be a revolutionary concept and would be rejected by most Christian leaders. Why? Because the Message of the Kingdom of God has been ignored by so many preachers who imply that we can be “saved” by faith only, but if we want” rewards” we might consider doing the Will of God.
Doing the Will of God is presented as an option and something different from “salvation.” Doing His Will is treated as “an add on” to salvation rather than as the basis of the Kingdom Government ruling over our redeemed life.
By combining a few of these Kingdom Scriptures together it becomes clear that this Christian life is just apprenticeship training for the Eternal Kingdom and our preparation to carry out God’s Eternal Purpose in the “World” yet to come.
If we don’t seek God diligently to discover His Will for our life and then do it, the “highest order of our great and eternal salvation” is in jeopardy. Doing the Will of God is synonymous with Christ ruling over us. When we ignore His Will we are in effect saying “We don’t want this man to rule over us.”
If this Kingdom Truth was preached, in any fundamental church in America, we would be asked to leave and take that false doctrine with us. The evidence of the lack of the Gospel of the Kingdom is seen in the lukewarm, casual, apathetic lives and pitiful testimonies of those in the visible church, who think sitting in a pew and listening to an irrelevant message is all God requires!
The fallen church system is responsible for this lack of the real Kingdom message. Doing the will of God is just a first principle, the minimum, to participate in the active Kingdom Government of God, which must now be in our experience.
Mat 12:48 But He answered the one who was telling Him and said, "Who is
My mother and who are My brothers?" 49 And stretching out His hand toward His disciples, He said, "Behold, My mother and My brothers! 50 “For whoever does the Will of My Father Who is in Heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother."
Doing His Will is the very minimum requirement to participate in God’s present Government or even to be included in His family. Doing His Will was also the requirement to participate in God’s Kingdom Government in eternity past! This was the failure of Satan and 1/3 of the angels who refused to do God’s Will and submit to His Ultimate Authority.
Would God be just and righteous if He failed to tell us that our eternal destiny is determined by this simple requirement of doing His Will? Of course not!
Then how can we be just (justified, righteous) if we fail to tell those who don’t have a clue about the Laws of His Kingdom Government and about God’s eternal requirements?
As a remedy, the Gospel of the Kingdom, when preached in fulness, solves this problem and those who can hear are left with no excuse but to get prepared to obey. If this Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a witness to every nation before the end will come, it seems clear that we must do our part to reveal the Government of the Kingdom and His Requirements to our generation.
This lukewarm gospel of the half-priced sale, the gospel of the bargains, which is based upon cheap grace, must be reversed by the Kingdom Truth before we can proceed to preaching the demands of the Kingdom.
The fall of man must be reversed by the full experience of each Foundation, first, before we can fully live the Christian Life and participate in His Kingdom Government. The Foundations are critical to doing His Will!
For that reason, everything in the Christian life must be modified by the demands of the Kingdom of God or the visible church will just remain lukewarm, casual and not fully committed to a full redemption and radical inner New Covenant change. This requires a New Mature Inner Man!
That means a complete metamorphosis from being a generic heathen to becoming a citizen and participant in the highest realms of the Kingdom of Heaven, Mount Zion.
Seeking for the manifestation of supernatural gifts from the Holy Place without seeking for the full growth of the new inner man, and obedience to His Kingdom Government, is the reason for the “failed ministry” and the continued growth of the last Charismatic Restoration that ended in 1985!
Having an active ministry, without knowing the Will of God, is a grievous mistake! We have seen “prophets” lay hands on the undeveloped and spiritually ignorant and “impart” an imaginary gift and a “worldwide ministry” that has nothing to do with doing the will of God.
The experiential Kingdom Government, within, will expose this deception.
This “seeker friendly” gospel of the give-a-ways and the gospel of the bargains, the Gospel of the half-priced sale, must be openly condemned as too little, too late,
and much too shallow for today! Why?
Every Christian person must be radically modified by the Kingdom and obedience to His Laws rather than the Kingdom being modified to accept the half-saved, the rebellious and the lukewarm. Of course there is always the New Earth that is “heaven.”
For the past 100 years too much “Christian diplomacy” preached which offers “inclusion and acceptance” for all who will say these words and who believes our doctrine of salvation! This has reduced the “visible church” down to a religious social club that cannot manifest Christ or be a light to the world.
This is exactly why the Outer Court “Consecration offering” and our surrender of our New Man to the life of a bondservant is all part of the New Covenant Church. This is the Gospel of the Kingdom and this is critical to the next restoration.
This “consecration of our new man to do the whole Will of God” is just a part of the Christian Life and is part of the foundational experience! This is actual experience just preliminary to the next restoration. That is just getting ready, a basic preparation, for the eternal Kingdom Government of God, which must become experiential in our life.
Luke 12:47 "And that slave who knew his master's will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, shall receive many lashes,  but the one who did not know it, and committed deeds worthy of a flogging, will receive but few.
To “know the Will of God” and then not act in accord with His Will is a very dangerous plan. This experience of “Doing His Will” in our Christian Life is just for getting ready for the dispensation of the Eternal Kingdom where everyone must do the Will of God.
We can almost hear a chorus of objection rising up asking;
“What about God’s grace? Doesn’t God’s Grace overlook our refusal or casual attitude about doing God’s Will?” Not at all! It is God’s Grace that enables us to find and do God’s Will but does not excuse us for ignoring God’s Will.
“Well, if we receive our “many lashes”for not doing God’s Will, will that make up for our rebellion and permit us to be excused so we can participate in the Eternal Kingdom?” That would be a very dangerous assumption to make in the light of what Jesus taught. Why shouldn’t we, rather, just seek God diligently and discover His Will and do it? Wouldn’t that be a better plan? Wouldn’t that would be much safer!
“Yes, of course, but that wouldn’t be convenient for me because I’m not ready to offer myself as a bondservant to God so what are my other options?
My plan is just to get into heaven. I have no ambition about fulfilling God’s Purpose! Just give me the words I can say that will just get me into heaven.
What doctrine can I believe to just get in?”
Why would you want to do that?
“That is because even the New Earth is good enough for me?”
This is a big problem with the Gospel of the Kingdom of God! It doesn’t offer us various options! We cannot choose between various insurance plans! If we don’t want “this Man, Jesus Christ, to rule over us” the alternative is to be brought into His Presence and be killed.
Well, isn’t this very legalistic? Yes!
But we are not speaking, here, about the laws of man or what is convenient for man but we are presenting the Demands and Laws of the Kingdom of God and how His Government works.
To just wait until the end and “plan to make a plea bargain at the Judgement Seat of Christ” is ignorant. Besides this, the long lines at the plea bargain table will be terrible because of the perversion of grace that has been preached. Just beyond the “plea bargain table” will be the one “who takes away” the Grace and the Life that was given to you.
As the demands of the Kingdom come out into the light, it will be clear that this “Christian Life” is not about fun and games and shaking hands with Jesus. When the rebellious try to step over into the “Glory of God” they will discover He dwells in that consuming fire and He dwells in unapproachable Light.
When the rebellious approach God they will immediately be aware that sinners in Zion are terrified. Trembling has seized the godless. It will be difficult make a plea bargain when you are speechless.
Mat 22:12 and he said to him, `Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes?' And he was speechless.  Then the king said to the servants, `Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into the outer darkness; in that place there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  For many are called, but few are chosen.’
Jesus’ “friends” who are invited to the feast should also have on the proper wedding garments just to be granted access to the feast. Having on counterfeit or inferior or unclean garments are NOT another option for the “super grace” people. There is no forgiveness for not having on wedding garments!
Having on “proper garments” is NOT JUST WORKS that can never save you! These are the requirements just to find a seat. Rejoicing in the multitudes who are “called” or have received forgiveness of sins, is a little premature. Our “harvest” will be measured by those who have been faithful and who are “chosen.”
The “wood, hay and straw” that fill the pews in many churches may make a good show but our harvest is measured by the “silver, gold and precious stones” that remain after the fire of God tests the work.
Right in the middle of preaching the requirements of the Kingdom someone will ask “But what about spiritual warfare?” Could you explain about the tribulation?” “Where did Cain get his wife?”
All these things are irrelevant, unless we are living in the Kingdom Government of God! We must set the primary things for our future goals in FIRST place and give them absolute priority. Those who are living in rebellion, who are apathetic toward God’s Will or are ignorant of the Government of God or fail to recognize His enemies, are not candidates for spiritual warfare.
In addition to this, those who are not willing to do His Will cannot understand spiritual things anyway!
John 7:17 "If any man iswilling to do His Will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or whether I speak from Myself.
Even the carnal believers want to know about spiritual things because of curiosity and not so they can serve God and obey Him. This is the frustration of trying to teach spiritual things to carnal people.
If we placed this principle of spiritual maturity in the Tabernacle graphic (Outer Court, Holy Place and Most Holy Place) we would understand that the “meat of the Word” and “clearer spiritual insight” is limited to those in the Holy Place! There are they who have given themselves to experience the Foundations and have offered themselves “in a full consecration offering to God” and as a living sacrifice to do His will.
The seven Outer Court EXPERIENCES are just preparation for the New Believer to participate in the New Covenant Priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek. This is exactly why the priesthood ministry, after the Order of Melchizedek, must begin in the Holy Place and not in the Outer Court.
We should not separate the “Holy Place function of the priests” from “the Kingdom of Priests” that God is preparing to rule over the world yet to come. In the wholly spiritual light of the Seven Spirits of God in the Holy Place, the demands of the Kingdom are quite reasonable.
The casual approach to priesthood ministry, that we see in Nadab and Abihu, is exposed as totally unacceptable. [Lev 10:1-2] The Bible indicates that they were drunk. This reveals that their approach to God was entirely too casual for the Holy Place ministry! The Fire of God consumed them and even their father, Aaron, was not permitted to grieve over their death in that Holy Place Realm. There was no plea bargain because of ignorance!
“But aren’t you ignoring the mercy of God?”
We need to begin to think in terms of the Kingdom requirements rather than use God’s mercy and grace as an excuse for every failure to fulfill our obligation to God and His Government.
“But what if these poor sons, Nadab and Abihu, the high priest, Aaron, didn’t know any better than to burn strange fire? Wasn’t that just a mistake that should have been forgiven?”
No! They were in training for that ministry for a year so there was no excuse. Shouldn’t God’s mercy and grace be balanced out with God’s revealed standards and His Judgement? The real question is this; Should we continue to present a shallow, one-sided gospel of grace, that ignores obedience to the revealed Laws of God?
The “History of the Kingdom” has no beginning but it will have an ending for us personally if we don’t submit to its absolute authority and sovereignty. Of course, if you are offended by the requirements of the Kingdom, there is always Satan’s kingdom that will accept us without any requirements. Everybody can qualify to participate in his kingdom of darkness. All you have to do is reject God’s Kingdom Government over your lives.
Luke 19:14 "But his citizens hated him, and sent a delegation after him, saying, `We do not want this man to reign over us.'  "But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence."
“But, brother, where is the love in that? Isn’t that very legalistic?” Yes!
That is according to the Laws of the Kingdom and we shouldn’t confuse this with the religious laws of man. Why? Because the Laws of the Kingdom are Eternal! The Kingdom, its laws, its requirements and its judgements are all part of His Eternal Government.
Obedience to God is the very first indication that we are serious about seeking FIRST His Kingdom and His Government. This “obedience” is first expressed by submitting to and experiencing ALL SEVEN of the required Foundations in the Outer Court Dimension of our Spiritual Growth!
Making up doctrinal excuses why these Foundations are unnecessary, because we are already saved, is part of this ignorance and is reflected in this rebellion that is inherent within the natural but religious man.
From the revelation of the Tabernacle of Moses, in the Book of Hebrews, we should be able to see the necessity of the elimination of the natural man in preparing a TENT for the habitation of God and a starting place for the New Covenant Priesthood.
Without the TENT there can be NO Holy Place life, and no Most Holy Place, in which the New Covenant Priesthood can function. Without the Tent there is no place for God to dwell! Without the Tent there is no place for the Third Veil to be torn. Without the Tent there is no access for us into God’s Presence or to sit with Jesus on His Throne! Without the Tent there is no Holy Place in which we must overcome. There is no place for the PURE GOLD LAMPSTAND CHURCH! Without the Tent there is no place for the Seven Spirits of God to function. Without the Tent there is no place for Our Great High Priest to teach the Pure Gold Lampstand Church in Revelation 2 and 3. Without the Tent there is no place for the Table of Showbread or a place for the Altar of Incense to function.
It seems certain that we must have some teaching or the next studies about the TENT in the Tabernacle of God.
Even though we have not had the experience of the Tent we have several Scriptures about the Tent in the Tabernacle of Moses, which are a type of the Tabernacle of God. These will suffice for the Studies of the Doctrine of the Tent.
We must complete the Outer Court Foundations BEFORE we can experience the Second Veil, the Veil of Truth, and enter into the Tent.
Men have been given the opportunity to teach the Outer Court doctrines and experiences to new believers. These must be taught by the Anointing of the Holy Spirit. It is these experiences that take us to the Veil of Truth, the Second Veil.
It is Veil of Truth that reveals every lie that remains in our Christian Life. Since the Pure Gold Lampstand Church has no wood in it, it is made exclusively of Christ. CHRIST is the Living and Abiding Word of God. We received the Living and Abiding Word of God, the Spirit of Christ, when we were born again. This became our New Spirit but it only came in baby degree as our new life.
It is the Seven Outer Court Foundations that build up that Life until it comes to Full Outer Court Maturity. It is Water Baptism Foundation that separates the Old Man, Adam, the flesh, the Old Covenant, from the New Inner Man and provides the New Life of Christ and that Eternal Hope of Passing through the Second Veil. There are Seven Outer Court Foundations, that we each must experience, made available, but these are not taught in the visible church.
Seeking for Christian Maturity, without Experiencing These Seven Outer Court Foundations, is a hopeless exercise in futility. All Priesthood Ministry BEGINS in the Holy Place, not in the Outer Court. All New Covenant Ministry must begin in Priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek.
I am guessing that the Five Fold Ministry, that Jesus Appoints, BEGINS in the Holy Place. Why? It is designed to bring the Church that He is Building, in the Holy Place, as Members of His Body, to the Outer Court Perfection.
Eph 4:10 He who descended is Himself also He who ascended far above all the heavens, so 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 knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. 14 As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; 15 but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.
We don’t see this level of Ministry in the visible church today. We see pastors trying to fulfill the work of the Five Fold Ministry! We are NOT seeing these RESULTS from the present ministries. Jesus is returning to pick up His Perfected Bride in Revelation 19. She has been being “perfected” for 2000 years.
I am guessing that SOMEONE must make the transition to the Holy Place BEFORE JESUS CAN APPOINT THEM TO THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY. That means that the Ministry must change or complete it’s preparation process. Most ministries are chosen by their Bible Training, in Bible School, and Not by their Outer Court Foundational Preparation Experiences so they can be taught and appointed to the Five Fold Ministry by Christ Jesus, Our Great High Priest!
The New Covenant Priesthood Ministry, after the Order of Melchizedek, is not prepared by Knowledge but with the New Resurrection Life of Christ! Ministers prepared by the Tree of Knowledge, rather that by the Tree of Life, will soon become obsolete, according to the Pattern of the Tabernacle. The Tabernacle of Moses is shown in the Book Of Hebrews, as the Pattern for the Tabernacle of God, which Moses saw on Mount Sinai!
