This is a study touching on 'God has not left anything to chance' plus 'We are now the tabernacle or tent in which the Ark of God dwells.' Why did Ruth migrate from Moab, can we apply this to our lives today. An explanation of the man-child who is 'caught up to God & His throne'. This world is God's world. RWK.

Part 18, making straight our paths.

  1. 1. “Christ the Antidote Regarding Death” “CHRIST THE ANTIDOTE REGARDING DEATH” Part. 18. 'MAKING STRAIGHT OUR PATHS' “He drew me up out of a horrible pit [a pit of tumult & of destruction], out of the miry clay (froth &slime), & set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps & establishing my goings.” Ps.40:2. Oh what a wonderful glorious hope we have in such a wonderful God & Saviour who is actually within, part of, & in truth when fully realised, actually my own 'true identity'. How true are the words when the prophet said that 'Man is fearfully & wonderfully made.' As we move on in God after He has brought us up out of the horrible pit of our sin or 'our mistaken identity' which is the root of our 'tumult of destruction' or the thinking in the terms of our 'miry clay' which represents the 'mass or Adamic consciousness of the world' also described as our 'froth & slime' experience, which in truth is also our 'mistaken identity'. And yet these experiences were & are necessary. Christ is the seed, 'not seed's of many' & this seed in every one of us must be planted in the earth - our earth, our miry clay,- the Christ Himself the WORD planted himself in every man. The natural seed that we plant in our garden, before it germinates must die in that miry clay or froth & slime before it begins to sprout. When the scripture tells us that 'Christ was slain from the foundation of the world' Rev.13:8, it is my conviction that there was an agreement in the Godhead that 'The Christ, the Son, the WORD' would plant Himself in the earth of every man, every human being, & as the seed, that he die or sleep - there is no deeper death than ignorance & unbelief - in every human being, & then at a certain time when we are at a stage of being tired of this flesh 'or horrible pit or tumult of destruction' experience & are ready to come AWAKE then Christ our 'true self or identity' speaks & then the seed is germinated as it were & then our feet are set upon the ROCK of TRUTH. Then a new phase begins when my steps & my goings are steadied & established in the way of my maker who does ALL THINGS WELL. The crucifixion at Calvary was the culmination of this death or sleep; then began a new experience when from that time He Christ 'finished put an end to transgression, sealed up & made full the measure of sin & brought in everlasting righteousness' Dan.9:24, & from the time of the resurrection, a new race of people were brought into being. But alas the veil or our 'mistaken identity' has to date hidden this fact from most of mankind, but thank God He is now lifting that VEIL. We are now no longer 'judged according to our iniquities' we are now realising the truth of our 'full salvation' wherein we realise that 'Christ having been offered to take upon Himself & bear as a burden the sins of – the – man once & once for ALL will appear a second time, not to carry any burden of sin nor to deal with sin, but to bring to FULL SALVATION those who are [eagerly, constantly, & patiently] waiting for & expecting Him.' Heb.9:28. In other words the full truth of what was established at the Cross & resurrection will be fully revealed or made known. This is when we begin to 'fully inherit that [final] – or full - salvation that is ready to be revealed [for you] in the last time.' Which is RIGHT NOW. 1Pet.1:5. ' We Are All Of The Last Adam' Furthermore in reality there are no more FIRST ADAMS, Jesus Christ has reversed that. Now I want us to consider very carefully what I am now going to say. “Thus it is written, The first man Adam became a living being (an individual personality); the last Adam (Christ) became a life-giving Spirit [restoring the dead to life]. 1Cor.15:45. Two questions. Did the first Adam refer to all men? The answer is of course, Yes! We all belonged 'deceptively' to the corporate Adam. Now the second question is. Did the last Adam refer to all men? The answer is “And as we have borne the image of the earthy, 'our mistaken identity' we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.” 'our true identity' 1Cor.15:49,22. KJV. This is an unconditional statement backed up by Verse. 22,“For as in Adam ALL die, even so in Christ shall ALL be made alive.” To further solidify this “I will draw & attract ALL men to Myself.” Jn.12:32. And again “For as by one man's disobedience - the - many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall - the - many be made righteous.” Rom.5:19.KJV. Then again in Rom.11:32. Amp. “For God has consigned (penned up) 1
  2. 2. “Christ the Antidote Regarding Death” ALL men to disobedience, only that He may have mercy on them ALL [alike].” And one more found in Rom.14:11. “For it is written, As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me & every tongue shall confess to God [acknowledge Him to His honour & to His praise].” And the wonderful thing is that all of this is to be done through & by the inescapable, irresistible, & all powerful Love of God, who is the Spirit of truth; Who will be working through His manifested sons, also known as His man-child: Not forgetting the grave clothe helpers in John 11 who are His children, who are at work even now. Through & by the cross & the resurrection, every last one of us are now the LAST ADAM. Because you or I at one time could not see this did not alter the fact of the truth of it. As with any other truth's that we have seen over the years our earlier ignorance of those things did not alter the validity of them. So Christ is now lifting the lid as it were or removing the veil & revealing to us that we are indeed now the last Adam & that we are no longer the first Adam & this hidden or false or 'mistaken identity' is being shown up & 'will be taken out of the way' - in our realisation - once & for all, & if we think in the present tense, this truth we are espousing & sharing is helping to do just that. 'God Has Never Left Anything To Chance' Nothing in the plan of God is left to HIT & MISS. “And He Himself existed before all things, & in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together).” “And God purposed that through (by the service, the intervention of) Him [the Son] all things should be completely reconciled back to Himself, whether on earth or in heaven, as through Him, [the Father] made peace by the means of the blood of His cross. Col.1:17,20. “Who works out everything in agreement with the counsel & design of His own will.” Eph.1:11b. “Who will have all men to be saved, to come to to the knowledge of the truth.” KJV. The amplified states in the latter part of the same verse, “to perceive & recognise & discern & know precisely & correctly the [divine] Truth.” 1Tim.2:4. The wish or will, from the Gk, is [Thelo, to wish, will, or mean]. If you are wondering about the word wish, I think that God is fully capable of fulfilling His own wish, but in the idiom of the then language it did not have the connotation of today's understanding of wish. So God has purposed that in His time that every last one of His creation, will come to a 'full knowledge & recognition of the Truth.' I must comment & say, how truly wonderfully Glorious!! 'God's World' Some have stated that this is not God's world. I would strongly disagree. “The Earth is the Lord's & the fullness of it, the world & they who dwell in it.” Ps.24:1. 'All things are of God' So therefore 'God works all things together for His glory.' The whole of creation is to redound to the Glory of God. Then in the 9th Chapter of Zech & verse 1b& 8b-9,11-12, we read “For the Lord has an eye upon mankind as upon all the tribes of Israel.” 8b. “For now My eyes are upon them. 9. Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O Daughter of Jerusalem! Behold your King comes to you; He is [uncompromisingly] just & having salvation [triumphant & victorious], patient, meek, lowly, & riding on a donkey, upon a colt, the foal of a donkey. 11. As for you also, because of & for the sake of the [covenant of the Lord with His people, which was sealed with sprinkled] covenant blood, I have released & sent forth your imprisoned people out of the waterless pit. 12. Return to the stronghold [of security & prosperity], you prisoners of hope; even today do I declare that I will restore double your former prosperity to you.” A wonderfully hidden prophecy for us today 'For my eyes are upon them, the Daughter of Zion & of Jerusalem, even as it was upon the then Israel. Why? For his people NOW are now the true spiritual Israel 2
  3. 3. “Christ the Antidote Regarding Death” 'he that is a Jew is one inwardly, circumcision is of the heart, & is not outwardly'. Now I know full well that Jew & Israel does not necessarily in some cases mean the same thing, but the type or metaphor I believe in this case applies. In God's world today He is laying His hand on those who are listening, willing & ready & bringing them out of a waterless pit, water is indicative of the Spirit of God'. We are being told that man who has been imprisoned in this waterless state or pit for so long is now being released. 'Return to the stronghold - Christ in you, your true identity - you prisoners of HOPE;'..... In Rom.8:19-21.Moffatt. We read, “Even the creation waits with eager longing for the sons of God to be revealed. For creation was not rendered futile by its own choice, but by the will of Him who thus made it subject , the HOPE being that creation as well as man would one day be freed from its thraldom to decay & gain the glorious freedom of the children of God.” We are also told in the above Zechariah verse 12, That these 'prisoners of HOPE will also have double their former prosperity – which was the Genesis One experience – restored to them' this is meaning for us, beginning today. NOW!! 'David is in Charge' The Prophecy of Ezekiel found in Chapter 34, was a judgement against the shepherds of his day, as well as an indictment against many of the so called shepherds & Pastors of today. It would be good for you all to read the whole chapter to understand the whole picture. In looking at verses 19-26. “And my flock, must they feed on what your feet have trodden & drink what your feet have fouled? Therefore says the Lord God to them: Behold, I, I Myself, will judge between the fat sheep & impoverished sheep, or fat goats & lean goats. Because you push with side & with shoulder & thrust with your horns all those that have become weak & diseased, till you have scattered them abroad. Therefore will I rescue My flock, & they shall be no more a prey; & I will judge between sheep & sheep. And I will raise up over them ONE SHEPHERD & He shall feed them & He shall be their Shepherd. And I the Lord will be their God & My Servant David a Prince among them; I the Lord have spoken it. And I will confirm with them a covenant of peace & will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land, and [My people] shall dwell safely in the wilderness, desert, or pasture-land & sleep [confidently] in the woods. And I will make them & the places round about My hill a blessing, & I will cause the showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing [of good insured by God's favour]. There are many verses in the OT that speak about David, regarding the son's of God. In the above we realise that this is Jesus Christ who was described as 'the Son of David', but we must also realise that the 'Tabernacle of David' which was actually a portable tent, represented us, the son's of God, God's now corporate, portable, walking, living & moving Most Holy Place. This is how God is at the moment rescuing His flock, that they be no more a prey this is also how our Father is raising up ONE SHEPHERD not only through Christ but through the type which is My servant David. If we do a search we will find many, many verses consolidating this fact. In obedience to the realisation of the truth of the Tabernacle of David we are told 'I will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land & My people shall dwell safely in the wilderness......and I will cause the showers of blessing to come down in their season'. In Acts 15:16-17.We read, “After this I will come back, & will rebuild the house – tent or tabernacle – of David, which has fallen; I will rebuild its [very] ruins, & I will set it up again. So that the rest of men may seek the Lord, & all the Gentiles upon whom my name has been invoked.” WE ARE THAT TABERNACLE, WE ARE THAT TENT. THE ARK OF GOD IN THE MOST HOLYPLACE IS WITHIN YOU. “And David My servant shall be King over them, & they all shall have ONE Shepherd. They shall also walk in My ordinances & heed My statutes & do them.” Ezekiel.37:24. 3
  4. 4. “Christ the Antidote Regarding Death” 'For They Shall Inherit The Earth' Mt.5:5. Ps.37:11. This may surprise some, but my aim is that I am not planning to go anywhere else than to stay on this Terra- firma. God's true sons are planning to come into a New Dimension, many are planning to live Into the Age. Many are coming out of the 2nd realm of understanding Holy Place into the 3rd realm of realisation, The Most Holy Place. I am not trying to boast, as there are many, many others who are of the same mind as myself who have been on this road, or way of thinking longer than what I have. '' It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.'' Alan Cohen. 'Into a New Dimension, Into the Age' “Jesus said to her, I am [Myself] the resurrection & the Life, Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, & relies on) Me, although he may die, yet shall he live;” “And whoever continues to live & believes in (has faith in, cleaves to, & relies on) Me shall never [actually] die at all. Do you believe this?” Jn 11:25-26. Amp..... Here are now the same two verses from the Concordant Version “Jesus said to her. “I am the resurrection & the Life. He who is believing in Me, even if he should be dying, shall be living.” “And everyone who is living & believing in Me, should be by no means dying for the EON. Are you believing this?” I wish to show you that if we closely scrutinise these two verses that there is a difference. Verse 25,equates to the 1st & 2nd Realms, Outer Court & Holy Place. Verse 26, equates to the 3rd Realm Most Holy Place or Tabernacles, 'shall never die at all'.Amp, or 'should be by no means dying for the EON' Concordant. “By no means dying for the EON.” EON also means 'for the age' a period of time or one thousand years. There is a difference in the condition between the two Amplified verses; Verse 25 tells us 'whoever believes in' while verse 26 it states 'whoever CONTINUES TO LIVE & believes in' The difference is in the condition. With the Concordant verse 25 states 'He who is believing in Me' while verse 26 renders 'who is LIVING & BELIEVING in Me'......It is one thing to believe, & another thing to LIVE & believe. The difference is in the LIVING. As we have pointed out previously that there are 3 levels of understanding to scripture. “I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone observes My teaching [live in accordance with my message, keeps My word], he will by no means ever see & experience death.” Jn.8:51. The Greek renders these last few words living 'into the Age'. We also read in Num.14:24, “But my servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit & has followed me fully, will I bring into the land into which he went, & his descendants shall possess it.” The land of course was the PROMISED LAND, which today represents incorruptibility. 'Being Caught Up' When we read in Rev 12:5. Where the Man-child is 'caught up to God & His throne.' this is not referring to a geographical location, those in this verse have graduated into a very high spiritual dimension within themselves, the throne is a place of ruler-ship first of their own lives, within themselves, & then it will graduate to others. The same applies to those who have 'overcome & are sat down beside Me on My throne, as I Myself overcame (was victorious) & sat down beside My Father on His throne.' Rev.3:24. 4
  5. 5. “Christ the Antidote Regarding Death” This is not an actual seat or chair set in some geographical area other than within their or your very own being, in other words these have truly realised their true identity to the fullest, the VEIL will have been completely removed. In this overcoming as with our Elder brother who was & is our perfect example & pattern. This overcoming death in the resurrection, was of course included, & also those who are set down on the same throne will have also likewise overcome death through the same Christ within us. We are in no way advocating that flesh will be living in it's present state. “For this perishable [part of us] must put on the imperishable [nature], & this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] must put on immortality (freedom from death). I Cor.15:53. Men & women are going to begin to avoid the grave. I did not say all, not for the moment anyway. Do not tell me that it is impossible. You are too late it has happened in part already: Enoch & Elijah! Praise our most wonderful Creator & Saviour. Incidentally this is written to Third realm believers & those who have ears to hear & wish to aspire to a higher realm. 'Ruth Migrated From Moab' In migrating out of one country & into another, there are a number of things involved. First there is dissatisfaction, a tiredness of that which is un-fulfilling, a realisation that the present state of things are non profitable, a sickness of, & a non-excitement caused by a hopelessness of the mundane, & even a knowing of a wrongness. There is no goal, also an accepting of the fact that things are going nowhere. If God is calling you out of a Moab, & there is the uncomfortable feeling that you are not in the place where you ought to be, in other words you feel that you are a square peg in a round hole, you just do not fit; You need to make a transition, you need to migrate. Where will I go? Ruth followed her intuition, her 'gut feeling, so to speak.' Is there a deep seated feeling within you that tells you that incorruptibility on this earth for man is right, is there a ring of truth in this sort of talk, then you need to consider seriously MIGRATION. You need to follow your Naomi 'Come out from among them & touch not the unclean things' of MOAB. When Ruth followed her Naomi she followed her all the way to her COUNTRY, her realisation of the things of God & she eventually found her KINSMAN REDEEMER to the fullest in her ERA. There is a place right now where we can find our Kinsman Redeemer in a higher place than you have ever known Him before, right now, & that is in the realisation that He is within you as your 'very own identity' even in the Kingdom of God which is within you. If Ruth had stayed in Moab she would have died as there was a famine in the land, as in many lands or lives today. Is there a famine of the Word of God where you are at, are you just not being fed? You do not have to change Churches you need to change the place where you are feeding, we need to come directly to our Masters table, which is where he resides & that is with the Christ who is within you. Moab was a grandson of Lot, the result of an incestuous relationship with his own – Lot's - daughter. The nation descended from Moab. Not a good place to be in. Because of circumstances, Naomi found herself in Moab, not the perfect place for an Israelite but she made good use of her time & in her witness which was evident in her life. When after many years Naomi decided to return to Bethlehem of Judah for she had heard that there was no longer a famine there, her two daughters in law decided to go with her. Naomi advised them to return & blessed them. They replied no, we want to return with you. Here came the test of persistence, the Lord through Naomi made it hard, Turn back my daughters, I am too old to have any more sons plus & etc. Their persistence was tested, this journey was not & is not for the faint hearted, Orpah left, but Ruth clung to her, Naomi once again urged Ruth to return. Here is part of the answer Ruth gave. “urge me not to leave you or to turn back from following you; for where you go I will go, & where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people & your God my God.” Ruth.1:16. Ruth was functioning on faith alone, naturally speaking she did not belong to Naomi's people, she was a Moab'ite, not an Israelite, but wonderfully so, she did not listen to her natural thoughts, her 'lower self, her mistaken identity' she reached out in faith & obeyed her 'her higher self, her true identity, & obeyed that which was within for she knew that IN Naomi she had seen the TRUE GOD. Thank God that He is calling sons & daughters to Himself who are today going against the tide as it were & are obeying that which is within, as against their opposing Moab'itic circumstances & as Ruth did they are finding their Kinsman Redeemer in a way that they have never known to date or even expected.'Who is on the Lord's side' Once again this walk is not for the faint-hearted, you will be tested as God's sons, you will be tested even as their 5
  6. 6. “Christ the Antidote Regarding Death” forerunner, yes, even as your Elder brother Jesus Christ was tested, in the area or the fact that some of your former spiritual companions may think that you are strange & are a little off, a repetition of the early 1900s when Pentecost was being revived. I would like to insert here that some have labelled the Tabernacle message as false doctrine which has always been the case with those who would follow closely their Creator & Saviour, I no longer like to call it doctrine, 'as every Tom Dick & Harry claims to have the' 'true Doctrine' in the sense that now to many, it has now become a dirty word. TRUTH is what we are now promoting & only you if you are truly listening to your 'higher self your true Christ self' can determine what TRUTH IS!! Being led of the spirit not A spirit for 'there are many spirits gone out into this world.' God's true son's will discern & know HIS SPIRIT. God's people are now leaving Moab by the droves. Many are now, 'Making Straight Their Paths.' After Ruth had found her Kinsman Redeemer he said to her, “I have been made fully aware of all that you have done.....& how you have left your father & mother & the land of your birth & have come to a people unknown to you before.” Ruth.3:11. In other words God is saying to us here that He is taking into consideration that by faith you have forsaken all that you had to hold on to, 'your father & mother & your land' this was visually, physically, & even a false spiritual hope which is all that you had, but by faith & faith alone you obeyed my promptings & have moved into a higher dimension & by faith you have come to a people 'unknown to you before'...... “Jesus said, Truly I tell you, there is no one who has given up & left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake & for the Gospel's. Who will not receive a hundred times as much now in this time — houses & brothers & sisters & mothers & children & lands, with persecutions ---- & in the age to come eternal life.” Mark.10:29-30. I tell you today saints that this sort of faith & sacrifice moves the heart of God & that person, is a person that can be used of God, 'deep calls unto deep' & faith answers faith. And to prove what I am saying the consequence was that Ruth became the great grandmother of David & in turn was an ancestor of our Lord Jesus Christ. Does your spirit cry out Hallelujah, I say again saint of God, whoever & wherever you are God has great things prepared for them that will obey by faith His promptings. The 'in part, glass darkly, hope' to many today in the 1st & 2nd realms does not include incorruptibility invading this earth, 'which is the redemption of our bodies, from sensuality & the grave' Rom 8:23. ' So that We might feel after Him & find Him' 'For he is not far from any of us' “For in Him we live & move & have our being; as even some of your [own] poets have said, For we are also His offspring. Since then WE are God's OFFSPRING, we ought not to suppose that DEITY (the Godhead) is like gold or silver or stone, [of the nature of ] a representation by human art & imagination, or anything constructed of invented.” Acts.17: 27b-29. We are told that IN Him we live & move & are alive, that is our very consciousness our existence is God whether we realise it on not. The word offspring stems from a Greek word ghen'-os = genos, kin, (man) nation, offspring, stock etc. STRONGS # 1085. What is the writer telling us here? 'we ought not to suppose that Deity is like gold silver or stone' in other words He is not to be likened to anything else other than spiritual man, or Christ in you, His true offspring. I was always told that I was the dead spit of my natural father & in recent times I have looked in the mirror & have been quite surprised at the resemblance, what I am saying is if we wish to know the what the parent is like we need to look at the OFFSPRING. If we want to know what God is like we need to look at the offspring, but not through our natural eyes, but through the eyes of faith. I hear the statement 'ABSURD' please bear with me. God is SPIRIT so obviously we need to look a little deeper than the flesh. Many of us have not yet realised it but we have all been given six senses, 6
  7. 7. “Christ the Antidote Regarding Death” five for the flesh & one for the spiritual, that ONE spiritual sense embraces all the spiritual senses that we need, for it is FAITH. As with any sense or attribute we possess, to be fully active it must be exercised otherwise it will diminish, this is why Jesus often said, “Because having the power of seeing, they do not see; & having the power of hearing, they do not hear, nor do they grasp understand.” Mt.12:13. Did we notice the implication, we HAVE it but are not using it..... Good NEWS! 'For He has dealt to every man the measure of FAITH.” Now in this faith we have been given lies the very nature of God Himself. This is also another proof that God is within us, for faith is His nature God HIMSELF. In Mark.11:22. The Greek tells us, 'Have you faith of God' or we would say today Have the faith of God, in other words activate that which is of Myself that I have already given you. 'By faith we understand that the worlds were framed.' Now as we begin to understand that MAN is the carrier of God, MAN is the offspring of God, MAN is the Tabernacle or tent of God 2Cor.5:4. MAN is made in the Image of God, MAN is the APEX of God's creation. Now someone might say that the root word in this case is genos & not gennao STRONGS # 1080, as found in John.3:3,4,5,6,7,8. I am well aware of the difference but I want to say this, that Jesus Christ was as HUMAN AS YOU & I, & in one sense he did not have the jump on any one of us. This if you can hear & grasp it, is one of the wonderful reasons that He came to show us, that we are to come to an understanding of the fact, “That they all may be one, [just] as You Father, are in me & I in You, that they also maybe one in Us, so that the world may believe & be convinced that You have sent Me. I have given to them the glory & honour which You have given Me & that they may be one [even] as We are one.” John.17:21-22. Now I want us all to know that we are in no way exalting our humanity, but that within the shell of our humanity lie all the potential of God & the Godhead. Even though we may have found God whilst in our humanity there is yet more to the seeker, to the one who wishes to allow his faith to be activated 'Lord increase our faith' was the cry of the disciples. The full potential which is within us that Paul saw even in His day is shown in Eph.4:13 “Till we all come in the unity of the faith & of the knowledge of the Son of God unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” KJV. This stature of the fullness is found in 1Cor.15:49-51. “And just as we have borne the image [of the man] of dust, so shall we and so let us also bear the image [ of the Man ] of heaven . But I tell you this, brethren, flesh and blood cannot [ become partakers of eternal salvation and ] inherit or share in the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable (that which is decaying) inherit or share in the imperishable (the immortal).” The KJV Says, “That flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; We are declaring the truth of the Promised Land!!! 'There is no sacrifice too great, to gain the Prize of Incorruptibility' Mt.13.44-46. My reader friend & brother & sister, be encouraged for this is more than just a possibility to you. It is what He has ordained for those who will dare to believe. First to the 'son's of God, the man-child', then they are manifested,“So that rest of men may seek the Lord, and all the Gentiles upon whom My name has been invoked.” Act 15:17. Col.2:8-10. See to it that no one carries you off as spoil or makes you yourselves captive by his so called philosophy and intellectualism and vain deceit (idle fancies and plain nonsense), following human tradition (men's ideas of the material rather than the spiritual world), just crude notions following the rudimentary and elemental teachings of the universe and disregarding [the teachings of] Christ (the Messiah). For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature]. And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [ in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead --Father, Son and Holy Spirit-- and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power]........ Incorruptibility is part of the mind of Christ. 'Let this mind be in you, which 7
  8. 8. “Christ the Antidote Regarding Death” was also in Christ Jesus:' Phil 2:5........ Someone said that age is a problem of the mind! If that is so then all we need to do is to 'change our mind'....... Many true words have been spoken in jest!! 'Let us Labour to enter that Rest' Heb 4:11. “Let us therefore be zealous and exert ourselves and strive diligently to enter that rest [of God, to know and experience it for ourselves], that no one may fall or perish by the same kind of unbelief and disobedience [into which those in the wilderness fell].” The REST that we came into in the experience of the 'The Holy Place' or Pentecost was the 'foretaste or earnest' or 'first instalment'. 2Co 1:22 “Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.” Eph 1:14 “Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.” The word EARNEST in {STRONGS #g.728. ar-hrab-ohn, arrhabon. Of Hebrew origin [H6162;] a pledge, that is part of the purchase money or property given in advance as security for the rest :- earnest.} The fullness of the EARNEST or 'first instalment' is given at the completion of the 'Most Holy Place' experience as shown in the text below. Isa 11:9-10 “They shall not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. And it shall be in that day that the Root of Jesse shall stand as a signal for the peoples; of Him shall the nations inquire and seek knowledge, and His dwelling shall be glory [His rest glorious]”! This fulfilment will be found on the other side of the Jordan that we are now crossing. Let us not be deceived, as many of us were into thinking that we had it all in Pentecost. If we are, then we will never bother to be 'be zealous and exert ourselves and strive diligently to enter that rest [of God, to know and experience it for ourselves].' Hear the words of Paul who after many years of ministry did not consider that he had it all, & that he knew that there was more ahead. “I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward. So let those [of us] who are spiritually mature and full-grown have this mind and hold these convictions; and if in any respect you have a different attitude of mind, God will make that clear to you also.” Phil 3:13-15...... He also mentioned the same thing in Heb 9:28. “Christ will appear a second time, not to carry any burden of sin nor to deal with sin, but to bring to full salvation those who are [eagerly, constantly, and patiently] waiting for and expecting Him.” ------ This is surely; 'Making Straight Our Paths' An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.~ Gandhi.
