Part 43. ''How To Exit This Hopeless Earthly Realm''.

  1. 1. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death CHRIST THE ANTIDOTE REGARDING DEATH Part 43. How To Exit This Lower Hopeless Earthly Realm!There is a discovery among many, of a realm of living that supersedes the hopelessness that most areexperiencing in this negative world today. In the overall plan of God we can rejoice in the fact that wehave all been placed in this circumstance of seeming hopelessness for a wonderful reason & that is foundin the following encouraging inspired words of our great Apostle Paul which are! For the creation (nature) was subjected to frailty (to futility, condemned to frustration), notbecause of some intentional fault on its part, but by the will of Him Who so subjected it--[yet] with thehope. That nature (creation) itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and corruption [and gainan entrance] into the glorious freedom of Gods children. We know that the whole creation [ofirrational creatures] has been moaning together in the pains of labour until now. Rom 8:20-22. Amp. The thought that is uppermost in my heart is that this earthly realm that we are at presentexperiencing, which to many is one of delusion, defeat, & finality, & also to many people the only escapeis alcohol, a drug trip, suicide, the grave, & the finality of DEATH. Incredible as it may seem to thenatural mind, the exact opposite of this is the TRUE existence of reality. There is in an unseenexperience, a great unfathomable extent of love, order & eternal existence, which is not perceived withthe natural seeing eye but through an eye which is an eye that belongs to another eternal existence & it iscalled FAITH. Which if we begin to exercise we can expect the following. I WAITED patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry. - Weknow that the whole creation has been moaning together in the pains of labour until now - He drew meup out of a horrible pit [a pit of tumult and of destruction], out of the miry clay (froth and slime), andset my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and establishing my goings. And He has put a new songin my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many shall see and fear (revere and worship) and put theirtrust and confident reliance in the Lord. Psa 40:1-3. Amp. He drew me up out of a horrible pit this pit of seeming destruction, He then set my feet upon aROCK namely Christ who is actually a very real part of your being & is waiting for you to reach outwithin yourself & then begin to experience this other wonderful eternal world & then you will no longerbe singing a song of hopelessness, but a new song & then you are promised that you will have trust &confidence in the Lord of the one who controls this other unseen eternal existence; for you will have seen& be experiencing it through the eye of faith which is already within you & needs to be used, for we aretold that He has dealt to every man the measure of faith. With use or exercise it will develop in ANYman. Return to the stronghold [of security and prosperity], you prisoners of hope; even today do Ideclare that I will restore double your former prosperity to you. Zech 9:12. Amp. Notice that Zechariah refers to the prisoners of hope, the reason for this is that our great eternalFather has always had a plan even from the beginning that we would be lowered into the prison of thiscarnal world so that in the turmoil of hopelessness we would reach out & each & every soul will in timedo just that, for is it not written that when I am lifted up I will draw all souls to myself. So all is nothopelessness there is a purpose to every experience we have in existence & if you can believe it love isthe motivating force behind all that you & I are experiencing today for we must experience & enduretrials. But be encouraged. Who remembered us in our low estate; for His mercy endures forever; Psa 136:23. 1
  2. 2. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death The Communication Between Two Worlds!I am now quoting from a writer who I greatly respect. We would help you to raise your consciousness tothe spheres where harmony, truth & love prevail. The whole purpose of the unfoldment of these innerpowers, which all men & women possess in greater or lesser degree, is that you may become aware ofspirit, & be able to receive impressions of harmony & truth from the spirit world including angels & thespirits of just men made perfect Heb 12:22-23. Truth is a spirit law, a reality reflecting the law of God. But we have to prepare ourselves physically,mentally & spiritually, before we can reflect the truth which exists in the spiritual world. We have heard much talk about psychic matters & the proofs of an afterlife obtainable throughpsychic evidence, with great emphasis laid on the scientific viewpoint, rather suggesting thereby that thespiritual viewpoint is not scientific. This idea we would like to correct, & make clear that there is nothingunscientific in spiritual law. Spiritual law is eternally true, while the pronouncements of science changealmost yearly, so what is considered true today will be dismissed & forgotten tomorrow. With spirituallaw there is no change other than continual unfoldment & growth. More & more truth becomes revealedto a human being as his or her inner self grows in awareness; but the law remains constant. Spiritual science is the true science, both on earth & in the celestial spheres. When a man or womanbecomes aware of, practices & lives these cosmic & spiritual laws he or she is truly a person of science. First then, let us understand that spiritual unfoldment of your inner faculties is an altogether scientificprocess. If you ignore the laws of God, chaos somewhere in your being will be the result. But if youstudy the laws of God & abide by them, if you obey the inner promptings of your spirit & go steadfastlyforward step by step on the path which lies before you, you will discover a deep well of wisdom withinyour heart; & also cause your emanation to expand & it will emerge & be noticeable externally so that itreaches out to touch both the heights & the depths of life & the lives of others. Notice that we have said the depths. Your consciousness & awareness must extend both ways,reaching to both ends of the scale. Your consciousness & emanation must expand to embrace the height,the depth & the breadth of life, & in the process of this expansion you will acquire great tolerance, greatlove towards life & all creatures, & a deep calm & tranquillity of spirit. You will no longer be shocked orrepelled by anything: you will accept & understand that humanity in all its stages is in process ofevolution or return towards God, from whom all came. Unquote. The Truth Of Gods Overall Plan For Your Experience! For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans forwelfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. 12 Then you will call uponMe, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you. 13 Then you will seek Me,inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all yourheart. 14 I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will release you from captivity........ to which Ihave driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I caused you to becarried away captive. Jer 29:11-14. Amp. This is a wonderful verse for all who have not yet brokencompletely from the captivity of this position of hopelessness. God has wonderful plans for your spiritualwelfare NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, OR THE CONDITION THAT YOU ARE IN AT THE MOMENT. I amgoing to give you welfare, peace & hope in your final outcome I will release you from your presentspiritual captivity to which I have driven you & I will bring you back to the original place from which Icaused you to be carried away captive. I ask the question, where & what was that place? As most of usknow we were created in Christ Jesus, Eph 2:10, the original tells us created not recreated. Where did thistake place? In the very first chapter of Genesis 1: 27-28, & we might notice that this one who was both 2
  3. 3. Christ The Antidote Regarding Deathmale & female was commanded to be fruitful & multiply out of their one self, - which & who was acomplete man - & this is where you originally came into being in this most spiritual state. Might I say atthis point that this is exactly where we are headed at this moment that we would realise that there is reallyno separation between the male & the female – the soul & spirit – only in our veiled understanding. Theapostle Paul makes the wonderful statement in the book of Ephesians. Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ beforethe foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blamelessin His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love. For He foreordained us (destined us, plannedin love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance withthe purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent]-- Eph 1:4-5. Amp. So thepromise of our Father is that He is bringing us back to this realisation of understanding of who we reallyare. You are not just a mortal human being consisting of flesh & blood but you are the offspring ofGod, a partaker of His divine nature 2 Pet 1:4. This is your true heritage & as we were told a littleearlier in Jeremiah I will bring you back to the place from which I caused you to be carried awaycaptive. And once again I iterate that this place is the Gen 1: 27-28 experience wherein is thatrealisation of your true identity even Christ. Our Soul And Spirit Have Never Yet Been Separated!Did not the serpent – which is representative of the carnal mind – say to Eve in Gen 3:5, that in the daythat you eat of the forbidden tree of good & evil you will be like God & you will know the differencebetween good & evil & blessing & calamity Gen 2:17. Now the sad thing was that in their true spiritualcreation & understanding they were already in the image of God & were replicas of the Father & had thishigh standing. How & why? Because Christ was already their true identity, but the moment they wantedto be as gods in a lower realm they became deceived for the spirit of God will not be relegated to thatlower realm for flesh & blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. For the command ever stands thatin the day that you not only eat of that tree but even touch it you shall surely die & so they diedimmediately they ate of the tree within themselves & even though the outward proof of the result was notevidenced for 930 years which was the best part of one thousand years, they still died in the day that wasin Gods calculations, for did not our respected Apostle Peter inform us that one day is as a thousandyears & a thousand years as one day. Now we well know that there is a deeper understanding to thisbut we also realise that there are three depths or interpretations to the inspired scripture. And so from themoment they partook of the fruit of the tree of good & evil, the evil was reversed & became a veil whichcaused in their minds the delusion that there was a separation of soul & spirit which is a lie. Now withoutseeming too pedantic is it only coincidence that the word lie is in both the words evil & veil? THERE ISNOT AND THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A SEPARATION BETWEEN SOUL & SPIRIT. Only in the evil lie of theveil. I hear someone saying but we are told that the veil is already taken away for all Christians; this maybe true but only in the same way that the blood that Jesus shed is for all, but until we come into thatunderstanding it is not yet effective in our experience. To further illustrate we read this verse. God whois the Saviour of all men, specially of them that believe. 1Tim 4:10. Now even though God may be thesaviour of ALL MEN it has not yet been experienced by all, it is now especially to them that have so farbelieved & taken advantage of the Word. This wonderful, wonderful, truth of the realisation that theKingdom of God, The Most Holy Place experience will eventually be understood by all, and that it isONLY WITHIN GODS TEMPLE which is both you & I. Let us now look very closely as this text proves thatit is an inward experience, in that it is saying that the veil is upon their hearts. Inward & not outward! But their minds were blinded: for to this day, when the Old Testament - the law of Moses.- is read,the same veil rests over them, and it is not known to them that the veil has been removed throughChrist. 15 But even unto this day, whenever the books of Moses are read, the veil is upon their hearts.16 Nevertheless whenever a man - repents fully and - turns to the LORD, - within - the veil is takenaway. 2Co 3:14-16. 3
  4. 4. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death When a man turns or fully repents of what? I believe it is partly outward religiosity. If in any waywe are still looking to the glory of Moses or our own works, the works of the flesh or doctrines of menwho think that the kingdom of God is anywhere else other than entos within we have missed the mark ofthe high calling. When discussing this with some they are utterly convinced that the veil is somewhere inthe celestial realm in a place called heaven which is an outer concept. For those who are wanting to attainto the man-child status the outer Pentecostal concept must be superseded for the secret place of the mosthigh or the Most Holy Place within understanding. Please allow me to close this thought, with the nexttwo verses from the Amplified, with the intention of also introducing another related theme. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation frombondage, freedom). 18 And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in theWord of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very ownimage in ever increasing splendour and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from theLord [Who is] the Spirit. 2Co 3:17-18. From One Degree Of Glory To Another!We are told that in the spirit of the Lord that there is liberty, emancipation from bondage. What bondage?The bondage of flesh & error. And wonderful news we are constantly being transfigured in everincreasing splendour, & this is the wonderful punch line, from ONE DEGREE OF GLORY TO ANOTHER.What is that glory? There is the glory of the stars, another of the moon & another of the sun. 1Cor 15:41.Now interestingly the moon does not have its own light but is a reflection of the greater glory the sun,which typifies the Sun of righteousness who is Christ. Mal 4:2. Each one has its own separate reason forexisting but each goes from one different degree to another & each one increases in splendour. Nowplease take note each glory differs from the next. Let us now look at the Tabernacle, there is a glory ofthe Outer Court which is wonderful in its own right & when we first experienced God in that realm Icould see nothing else & of course Jesus Christ was wonderful in this degree of glory. Then after a periodof time we were led to be interested in another higher degree of glory the Holy Place, Pentecost, whichagain differed & was far more wonderful in experience from the first. In time I was told that there was ahigher way again. This was called The Most Holy Place. Now as the glory of the sun FAR OUTSHONEthe moon & stars, I was to learn that the reality of this experience far, far outshone the earlier two & wasalso to learn that one of the reasons that it was also termed the SECRET PLACE was that nowhere as manycould see it, or wanted to know about it. This experience was to prove vastly different & this is why. Aslight was revealed the geographical position of the Most Holy Place shifted from a place called by mostChristians heaven into Gods true temple MAN, You are the temple of God the reason that we sittogether in heavenly places is that we have now realised that our Fathers dwelling place is no longer somuch in a geographical celestial sphere, but in us, His Temple, YOU AND I. This is now the differentdegree of glory of ever increasing splendour that the inspirer of our great writer Paul was reallyreferring to. The Expansion Of Gods Kingdom! According to the study of astronomy there is a wealth of diverse information in every beam of light, eachbeam is different & has its own glory as it were & those who are experts in this field can read into &glean so much information from each beam, it is simply amazing. Whether you can believe it or not, itcan be proven that the universe is actually enlarging & that there is an actual expansion of the universe. Ido not doubt this! I also as you no doubt do, believe that The heavens declare the glory of God if theheavens are expanding, then as they declare the glory of God I see this as a type of the true Church & asthey are expanding so is the Church & if the space in the universe is expanding, how much more thethings of the spirit of God. The spiritual heavens - celestial spheres - are now enlarging & making roomfor the expansion of Gods Church, which is in actual fact in Gods people, His dwelling place, Hisabiding places, His Temple, which you are. The understanding, the revelation, the realisation, is evennow expanding & is preparing to make room for a dynamic move into the sphere of a higher & largerdivine understanding & action. SPIRITUAL SPACE MUST MAKE ROOM FOR THE EXPANSION OF GOD& HIS BODY. The action of this coming will be seven times greater than the book of Acts. Which God 4
  5. 5. Christ The Antidote Regarding Deathwilling I will show why you at another time! By the way read the book of Acts & get a full picture of thewhat actually happened. One thing was that the whole of Asia heard the word. It was simply amazing! But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the Book until the time of the end. [Then] manyshall run to and fro and search anxiously [through the Book], and knowledge [of Gods purposes asrevealed by His prophets] shall be increased and become great. Dan 12:4. Amp. And knowledge shallbe increased & become GREAT. And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shallbe the LORDS. Obadiah 1:21 KJV. These saviours of course are the extension of Christ Himself, Hiscorporate self, the man-child. And say to him, Thus says the Lord of hosts: [You, Joshua] behold (look at, keep in sight, watch)the Man [the Messiah] whose name is the Branch, for He shall grow up in His place and He shallbuild the [true] temple of the Lord. Zech. 6:12. Amp. Once again this Man, this corporate man whosename is the Branch - Christ in His complete fullness - will be used to build the true complete temple ofthe Lord as found in the 21st Chapter of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. This temple of course iscomprised of people who have been completely transformed into shining lights which are the finishedwork of the Branch. Can you rejoice with me? Isa. 4:2; Jer. 23:5; 33:15; Zech. 3:8. But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformedinto the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit. 2Cor 3:18. ASV. Here wehave it again from glory to glory, are changed into what we behold, or what we have faith for. Forclarification what we are beholding in the mirror is the glory we are in & believing for. It is our choice ifwe wish to go to a higher glory than where we are at the moment. The eye is the lamp of the body. So if your eye is sound, your entire body will be full of light. 23But if your eye is unsound, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the very light in you [yourconscience] is darkened, how dense is that darkness! Mat 6:22-23. Amp. But Wonderful, Wonderful News!in the wake of a background of gloom, judgement, and terror], a feast of wines on the lees--of fatthings full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 7 And He will destroy on this mountain thecovering of the face that is cast over the heads of all peoples [in mourning], and the VEIL [of profoundwretchedness] that is WOVEN and spread over all nations. 8 He will swallow up death [in victory; Hewill abolish death forever]. And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; and the reproach ofHis people He will take away from off all the earth; for the Lord has spoken it. Isa 25:6b-8. Amp. In the wake of a background of gloom, judgement, & terror. Isaiah is speaking of this lower,hopeless, earthly realm. We also read that the the veil has been woven & spread over all the nations, thismeans that every warp & woof of religiosity is affected. The word woven carries a strong message, whensomething is woven well, it is almost impossible to tear, it is there to stay. To remove this veil it will takeonly the power & anointing of the spirit of our Father on the deeply applied word to unravel it. This veilis also one of profound wretchedness. When the scripture tells us that death will be swallowed up, thegreater part of the meaning is that God will so open our spiritual understanding & we will be so sensitive& imbued with the reality of who we really are that the old or former understanding of our mistakenidentity or the old perception of things will be swallowed up even as light swallows up darkness. Why?Because darkness does not really exist it is simply the absence of light, we will eventually come into thefull reality that Jesus had when he told us that I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE. Another way that we could say this concerning ourselves, is. I, the soul; - the mind will & emotions 5
  6. 6. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death- & my Christ self are one, or inseparable. Now of course it is one thing to say it but in that day by thespirit of God that we fully realise this, it will be the full enactment of Rom 8: 21-23. NOW THE TRUE FACT OF THE MATTER IS, THAT THEY NEVER WERE SEPARATED. The Two Are Already One!I envisage that in the future, that as the anointed manifest sons or man-child begin to impart this news tothe hungry there will be such an enlargement of divine realisation that there will be a move of the Spirit ofour Father such has never been seen which reminds me of the story found in 1Samuel. And Jonathan said to his young armour-bearer, Come, and let us go over to the garrison of theseuncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For there is nothing to prevent the Lord fromsaving by many or by few. 1Sa 14:6 Amp. When we read of the word ALL mentioned so many times,we realise that it will be every man in his own order or time, rank or turn. When the above enactmentbegins among the uncircumcised, believe me, it will not be by few. The next verse I believe also to beprophetic. Moreover, the Hebrews who were with the Philistines before that time, who went up with theminto the camp from the country round about, even they also turned to be with the Israelites who werewith Saul and Jonathan. 1Sa 14:21. Amp. Notice that we are told that there were some Hebrews whohad gone back on their true faith & had joined with the Philistines - enemies of Gods people - forwhatever reason, became convicted when they saw the power of God & the faith of the Israelites &repented & returned to even greater than what they had experienced before they left. What wonderfulthings we can expect. Which leads me to our next comment. It Is The Goodness Of God That Leads Us To Repentance!Because of past experiences of the goodness of God I wish to share the following, which is not a verypopular subject because of obvious reasons. This is not so much written to those in a high place in Godbut to those who are intent on attaining. And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons, "My son, despise not thechastening of the Lord, nor faint when you are rebuked by Him; 6 for whom the Lord loves Hechastens, and He scourges every son whom He receives." 7 If you endure chastening, God deals withyou as with sons, for what son is he whom the father does not chasten? 8 But if you are withoutchastisement, of which all are partakers, then you are bastards and not sons. 9 Furthermore we havehad fathers of our flesh who corrected us, and we gave them reverence. Shall we not much rather be insubjection to the Father of spirits and live? 10 For truly they chastened us for a few days according totheir own pleasure, but He for our profit, that we might be partakers of His holiness.Heb 12:5-10.MKJV. What we have just read is a vital part of Gods goodness that we increase in our understanding of Hislove. Condemnation will never cause anyone to truly repent. Conviction never brings condemnation.What is our true motive for walking the way of Tabernacles. I think that the motive of Moses in the nextverse would describe what should be the true motive of our allegiance. Gods method in what Heperceives as goodness, may sometimes seem to some as madness. And Moses said, I beseech You, show me Your glory. Exo 33:18. Amp. Moses had seen so much& yet what He mostly desired above all else was, Father show me your Glory. Yet let us reconsider hislife, note what he went through right from when he killed the Egyptian, & then even before that he camefrom the highest house - his adoptive family - in the land where he was raised as a Prince, yet when hesaw the injustice that was happening to his true people, Israel, he gave up all; & our wonderful Godeventually brought him to the place where he could say from a changed heart Lord above all else showme your Glory. But it did not come easy, as he endured chastening that he might mature into a highplace. Do you think that our God who is no respecter of persons thinks any less of you. NO, NO, NO. The 6
  7. 7. Christ The Antidote Regarding Deathchastenings of God are to bring us to a place that above all we wish our Father to show us His glory –even within ourselves - for this is the motive that I believe He is looking for in all of us. One thingfurther, this happened to a man who did not yet see the true meaning of the Holy Place let alone the MostHoly Place as we see it today, but was totally under the LAW. Where is this Glory today? The God who said, "Out of darkness the light shall shine!" is the same God who made his lightshine in our hearts, to bring us the knowledge of Gods glory shining in the face of Christ.2Co 4:6. GNB. This light that shines in our hearts within, is meant to bring us to understand that Godsglory is shining in the face of Christ. Who is where? Within us. Thank God for his chastenings!HALLELUJAH. What a hope! which we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast andentering into that which is within the veil; Heb 6:19. ASV. How thankful we are for this calling. Bythe way it is the second veil that is the important one for those who are yet aspiring to Tabernacles. Therewas also a veil at the entrance to the Holy Place. Some are inclined to confuse the two! Behind the second curtain was a second section called the Most Holy Place, Heb 9:3 ESV. And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holy of holies; Heb 9:3. ASV. The First And Last Man On The Sixth Day! On the sixth day God created, a man, the first Adam who was - even as we are – the Christ within beinghis true identity. Gen1:27. Who is Christ? He is the son of the Father & is Spirit. He was told to befruitful & multiply, so Christ begat spiritual replicas of Himself. We must remember that this book is fullof metaphors & so there is more involved than the words that we read. In reading this Chapter veryclosely I notice that the creating of man was left till last at the END of the sixth day, which to me issignificant. How long between Gen 1:26 & the time that He made man a living soul we can only guess, -but it certainly was not a 24 hour day,- but in that time the Adam, who was both - male & female – inspirit form & was the very manifestation of Christ was in constant spiritual procreation & that is when Ibelieve that we came into existence. for we are His workmanship, created - not recreated - in ChristJesus unto good works, which God before prepared that we should walk in them. Eph 2:10. 1:11.Amp.This I believe is when we were created spirit beings, in Gods Image - for we were the image of Christ-God had a great intricate plan ahead for who has known His mind? Answer; for He has revealed themunto us by His Spirit. Which is what we are sharing now. Then once again on the sixth day or the sixth thousandth year 2Pet 3:8 Christ again creates anotherman - which is now well in process - who is actually the same identity as the first spiritual man, Christ,who is also the last Adam, 1Cor15:45. This is also the corporate many membered Christ, & are themanifested sons of God or the man-child. Now the difference between these & the man in Gen Chapter 1is that these have been through a process of realisation & have now come to the place where they willmanifest even as divine beings, yes, even as our forerunner, Jesus Christ, but this time with a glorifiedbody that has overcome death. This body will not be a trumped up carnal body for flesh & blood cannotinherit the kingdom of God. I would also bring to your attention that the culmination of the revealing, orthe manifestation once again occurs at the END of the sixth day. Which brings me to conclude thisparagraph with; Is He not the first & the last? This is all showing that the planning of God is incredible& to perfection. After two days - A.D.- he will revive us; on the third day - A.D.- he will raise us up,that we may live before him. Hos 6:2. ESV. The 2nd day here is from A.D. & is exactly the same as theoverall 6th day as is the 3rd day - A.D.- also equivalent to the overall 7th day. To Him who alone does great wonders; for His mercy endures forever. Psa 136:4. Hear what one of our great forerunners George Hawtin has to say on this very theme. “The answerto the eternal question, What is man that thou art mindful of him is twofold because the question istwofold. What is man? The answer by example is Jesus Christ highly exalted, His name beingabove every name. He is the FIRST MAN & THE LAST MAN. He is the beginning of the creation of 7
  8. 8. Christ The Antidote Regarding DeathGod & He is the end of the creation of God.......What He is, we are becoming to which the scriptureclearly attests saying, As he is, so are we in this world, ” 1Jn 4:17. End quote. How To Exit This Lower Hopeless Earthly Realm!Now to return to our original thought & that is the reality of life. The answer to our original question ofhopelessness at the beginning of this article is Jesus Christ who is the exact opposite to what this lower,carnal existence would tell us. In the true Christ realm it is full of love, light, hope, power, eternal bliss,but the greatest of all of these is LOVE. That which may seem almost impossible to many now, isabsolutely possible for you & with your dedication & resolution you can realise that you are already a partof this other realm that you cannot see with the natural eye but is more that discernible through & by theeye of faith. You see we are told the whole earth is about to awaken from its sleep of death as the sons ofGod begin to move without inhibition under the Headship of our Lord Jesus Christ. Every knee willbow & every tongue will confess Isa 25:43. This incidentally is rarely taught among Church circles &to them it seems an impossible dream. But that which was taught by the Hebrew prophets of old; thisworld-wide ministry of Christ is even now beginning to come to pass. When I am lifted up from theearth, I will draw all men unto myself. This of course has a twofold meaning. The first is when Hewas lifted up on the cross; the second is that when He is lifted up in our hearts & we are separated fromour earthy mundane way of thinking & we realise that He was not from this world but His glory is inanother Jn 3;13, & in truth that is who & where we are. For is not His identity our true identity? These Texts I Found To Be Of Great Encouragement, Thus The Sharing!Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6 Then shall the lame man leaplike a hart, and the tongue of the dumb shall sing for joy. For waters shall break forth in the wilderness and streams in thedesert. 7 And the burning sand and the mirage shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water; in the hauntof jackals, where they lay resting, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. 8 And a highway shall be there, and a way; and itshall be called the Holy Way. The unclean shall not pass over it, but it shall be for the redeemed; the wayfaring men, yes,the simple ones and fools, shall not err in it and lose their way. 9 No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast comeup on it; they shall not be found there. But the redeemed shall walk on it. 10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall returnand come to Zion with singing, and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, andsorrow and sighing shall flee away. Isa 35:5-10. Amp. Ho!
