Part 69 The End Of The Day Of The Sword!

  1. 1. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death CHRIST THE ANTIDOTE REGARDING DEATH Part 69. The End Of The Day Of The Sword! As one has written. ''As we acknowledge the Christ, we are loosing more of the Christ into human consciousness & sin, disease, & death are thereby lessened. The day of the sword is passing. In the recognition of the Christ of our being, the Christ is on earth now instead of mortal man, the Christ as universal identity.'' It is certainly wonderful that in this day & age we are witnessing the Second Coming of the Christ, who is actually appearing to us in human consciousness universally, not as in the past just to special seers or special spiritual endowed ones or to the few, but as our writer above has said; ''In the recognition of the Christ of our being'' this awareness is now more rampant than we realise in the earth's higher consciousness now. No, the Christ has come & is coming to earth as the Consciousness of all of mankind. You & I have the privilege of aiding in helping to bring in this recognition to all men! The eventual aim of the Spirit is peace & harmony by the recognition & the intimacy with our peace lover even Christ who is our true identity of a reality that is eternal & will not pass away. For did not our forerunner, our Pattern Son inform us that ''my words shall never pass away.'' We are in truth witnessing the actual passing of the end of the Sword. It is none other than peace in a nations heart that will stop war, which involves the laying down of arms - the sword - the universal consciousness of the Christ pervading the atmosphere both spiritual & literal must bring a gradual change in the hearts of all men. As we begin to realise the Christ as the identity of every person this must bring a change in all that we are in contact with. We do not have to belong to any special group, teacher or religion. I am, you are, we are all the temple of God & it is this realisation that has us know that we are joint heirs of all that Our Father is & that all the heavenly riches in God in our consciousness are ours completely, this surely must bring an amnesty & an end to the wielding of our Swords. Usually in any war there comes a head on collision, a clash of wills & weapons & one side subdues the other; in this case the great strategist, the Christ in us is a peace lover & is among ourselves - as it were - taking many by surprise, yes by peace, in the realisation of who we are is bringing the victory & the complete & total surrender of our wills which is without reverse & this victory our Eternal Father has ordained is eventually forever. I think that this would bring great praise from our hearts to a God that has everything planned & under control. The plan of course is to set the whole of creation free, free from the sword of division, free from the sword of accusation, free from the sword of guilt & blame, disharmony & most of all the flesh or the lower life. ''Whoever finds his [lower] life will lose it [the higher life], and whoever loses his [lower] life on My account will find it [the higher life]. Mat 10:39. Amp. ''Yet seek first the kingdom and its righteousness, and these all shall be added to you." Mat 6:33. CLV. First seek the Kingdom which is within us in the Most Holy Place or the secret place of the Most High. ''From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?'' James 4:1. KJV. ''WHAT LEADS to strife (discord and feuds) and how do conflicts (quarrels and fightings) originate among you? Do they not arise from your sensual desires that are ever warring in your bodily members?'' Jas 4:1. Amp. These texts refer to each & every one of us, none of us are excluded. 1
  2. 2. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death Setting Creation Free! ''For whoever are being led by God's spirit, these are sons of God. 15 For you did not get slavery's spirit to fear again, but you got the spirit of son-ship, in which we are crying, "Abba, Father!" 16 The spirit itself is testifying together with our spirit that we are children of God. 17 Yet if children, enjoyers also of an allotment, enjoyers, indeed, of an allotment from God, yet joint enjoyers of Christ's allotment, if so be that we are suffering together, that we should be glorified together also." 18 For I am reckoning that the sufferings of the current era do not deserve the glory about to be revealed for us. 19 For the premonition of the creation is awaiting the unveiling of the sons of God. 20 For to vanity was the creation subjected, not voluntarily, but because of Him Who subjects it, in expectation" 21 that the creation itself, also, shall be freed from the slavery of corruption into the glorious freedom of the children of God." 22 For we are aware that the entire creation is groaning and travailing together until now. 23 Yet not only so, but we ourselves also, who have the first-fruit of the spirit, we ourselves also, are groaning in ourselves, awaiting the son-ship, the deliverance of our body." Rom 8:14-23. CLV. ''Before Abraham was I Am'' Long before Abraham - who was the father of the religion of Israel - appeared on the scene the transcendental consciousness was! The consciousness of the Christ is not allotted to only one way of thinking or even to Bible loving adherents alone, now please do not misunderstand me, for I love the Book, & many who would deride it & have a thing against it, that is where they are until an enlightenment. What we are saying is that not one group or way of thinking has any priority on the eternal consciousness which is what we, every man are part of. This I must also stress that the following in no way contradicts the all men message but actually enhances the overall message of ''I will draw all men unto me'' this is after ''I am lifted up'' Jn 12:32. This completeness of this lifting up will be the wonderful privilege of the man-child group who are the forerunners of those who overcome death & they in turn will lift up the Christ by leading miraculously, by supernatural example & re-introduce this complete full consciousness that was ours even before Abraham to the whole of mankind this time with a bonus, which is that we will finally be exact replicas of the Christ who appeared after the resurrection to Thomas & others who said in essence, touch me & see that I do indeed have a changed body. This man-child is ''caught up to God and His throne'' Rev 12:5. Can we catch the impact of these wonderful spiritual words caught up to God and His throne it boggles the mind & can only be grasped partly in spirit for until its happening, only those who are in this group will fully know this wonderful experience. This 'caught up to God & His throne' experience must not be looked at so much geographically, this is a spiritual statement, of course the spiritual will affect the outer in the ruling & reigning; But know this it will eventually happen to all men for the book of Acts refers to the many sages that are partly mentioned in Acts 17: 28, ''for in Him we are living and moving and are, as some poets of yours also have declared, ''For of that race also are we'' CLV, so we see the writer of the book of Acts bears witness to this also. The Amplified would say ''but we are ALSO His offspring.'' ''For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But each in his own order: Christ the first-fruits; then they that are Christ's, at His coming. 24 Then cometh the end, when he shall deliver up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have abolished all rule and all authority and power. 25 For he must reign, till he hath put all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be abolished is death. 27 For, He put all things in subjection under his feet. But when he saith, All things are put in subjection, it is evident that He is excepted who did subject all things unto him. 28 And when all things have been subjected unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subjected to him that did subject all things unto him, that God may be all in all.'' 1Co 15:21-28. ASV. The word 'coming' is from the Gk word Parousia, which means presence, Strongs # 3952. This word would throw a different light on what many have been taught on this truth as many think in the holy place or pentecostal opinion that the coming of Christ would be that He is coming in an actual bodily form. The presence of Christ who is eternal Spirit who is at one with the Father is coming IN His people, He is coming to be ''glorified IN His saints'' We are not going to view a physical presence that is going split 2
  3. 3. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death the sky or come in literal clouds; The meaning of clouds are actually the host of heaven which is mentioned in Dan 7:13 which is an analogy or type, & Heb 12:1 ''we are surrounded by a great CLOUD of witnesses'' we would also add ''They are clouds without water'' Jude 12:b, once again referring to men. We must remember that the Bible is full of analogies, if we are inclined to take it literally then we will easily be lost in the book which is full of hidden types & shadows which have to be searched out or more importantly revealed to us by the Spirit of Truth. I Will Perfect That Which Concerns You! I love you! These are three of the most wonderful words any of us can hear & if said from the heart can do so much good in this world. The question could be asked. Did God create any law or power at any time to destroy creation? No! But it has at times entered into the mind of man. As perfection or eternal consciousness progresses we will find that the day of not living by the sword is in the overall consciousness of man is now more increased than is realised! It is a vital truth & it was not spoken lightly when we were informed that ''He that lives by the sword shall die by the sword.'' This is a truth that holds a conundrum, the dying that Christ would use for those of us who would live by the sword, is a sword of His own, it is not so much that Christ the Spirit would wield a sword against us personally, but if we are bumping up against the laws that the Spirit, the eternal consciousness has set down then we come up against a force - or Sword - that is called the 'Word of God' which is far greater than what any of us can resist & if we do so we can only in some way eventually be the losers. It is far better & easier for any of us to experience this dying in obedience rather than in disobedience. Believe you me I know what I am talking about. John in the book of Revelation would give us this advice. ''If anyone is for captivity, into captivity he is going. If anyone will be killing with the sword, he must with the sword be killed. Here is the endurance and faith of the saints." Rev 13:10. Concordant. Now this killing is actually the slaying of the self will which is in each of us. Know this no matter what it takes & no matter how long it takes Our Father intends to have every one of us completely conformed to His will. Some are wonderfully further ahead than others, if we could only realise it is a done deal & it is as finished now as when when Jesus said it was, for if the truth be known it was finished even ''before the foundation of the world.'' Killed By The Sword! ''You know that our Lord Jesus Christ was kind enough to give up all his riches and become poor, so that you could become rich.'' 2Co 8:9. CEV. ''For you are becoming progressively acquainted with and recognizing more strongly and clearly the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ (His kindness, His gracious generosity, His undeserved favour and spiritual blessing), [in] that though He was [so very] rich, yet for your sakes He became [so very] poor, in order that by His poverty you might become enriched (abundantly supplied).'' 2 Co 8:9. Amp. Did not Jesus say ''I bring a sword''. The above unfortunately can become if we allow it a sword to some. He became poor so that we by His humility & poverty would realise not only our potential, but that we would actually become ENRICHED in the truth of the knowledge of our heritage in the eternal spirit or abundantly supplied in the truth of who we actually are & that is 'Christ's', saviours of mankind this which will first be completely realised by the man-child. In realising this wonderful liberating truth of just what Christ accomplished by taking on the poverty that He did, to make us RICH we are to realise that it belongs to us even now! This does not mean that we have to overstep the mark as Moses did & strike back at the very ROCK from whom He was not only drawing his wonderful sustaining spiritual water but actually derived his Godly identity of which he was to the people even as in lieu of God, but because he was displeased with not quite getting his way, this in fact cost him his being a part of the Joshua & Caleb group who were a type of the man-child group & entering into the promised land which today represents our overcoming of death. ''[Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasoning's and every proud and lofty thing 3
  4. 4. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One),'' 2Co 10:5. Amp. Paul would also tell us, ''However, when they measure themselves and compare themselves with themselves and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding and behave unwisely'' 2Cor 10:12b Amp. What we are advising here is that we would do well to consider that if Paul would indicate that this was happening in his day, then are we exempt from considering that it might apply to ourselves even today? ''For I am zealous for you with a godly eagerness and a divine jealousy, for I have betrothed you to one Husband, to present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.'' 2Co 11:2. Amp. The word Husband can be interchanged for the word bridegroom. Bridegroom is really another term for the Christ spirit. We see here another reference to the mystic marriage between spirit & soul, between the bridegroom & the bride. How can the two be wed the bride - soul – until the bridegroom - spirit - is first allowed to come & to be given free rein. Christ the eternal Son is the true everlasting bridegroom. ''He that believes not the Son'' cannot have the Son in him in His regenerating fullness. When a man believes he opens himself up to the Son & the light of regeneration streams in. Now as we have mentioned many times before as far as spiritual fact & truth is concerned there is really no separation between the two - soul & spirit - it is because thus far we are trying to view it through the veil which is our flesh or our lowered consciousness, which is being diminished as our true awareness is being increased. If we do not believe the Son how can we house the Son. Our Father is seeking those who tremble at His Word, - that is - as He would speak to us in Spirit within our inner consciousness to be His complete habitation we would be obedient. For confirmation we have cited the below. ''Thus saith Jehovah, Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: what manner of house will ye build unto me? and what place shall be my rest? For all these things hath my hand made, and so all these things came to be, saith Jehovah: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and that trembleth at my word.'' Isa 66:1-2. ASV. We are not forgetting that our title & theme is The End Of Day Of The Sword! An Extract From The Dead Sea Scrolls! ''And thus shall it come to pass in the generation of two times a thousand years, that these things shall come into fulfilment'' ''The new prophet of that far away future time …..... revelations about my real teaching will shake up the structure of the whole Earth, because at this time the world will be inundated by my teachings which have been distorted and falsified by the scribes, and the earth will live in a false cult which will bring it death. Before the two times a thousand years are past, the new prophet will reveal my unfalsified teaching in small groups, as I teach in small groups my trusted friends and disciples, the wisdom and the knowledge of the Laws of The Creation. And it shall not be given to know until that time whether it shall be that the prophet is of male or female.'' ''And it will become true in two times a thousand years, when man has become aware and thinking, that my real, unfalsified teaching will be revealed anew.'' To many the above of course speaks for itself but for the sake of those who are new we give the following explanation. The new prophet that is referred to here is the corporate body of Christ that are in this day seeing that they are now the Most Holy Place, that is that they are the real Temple that houses the fullness of God both singularly & collectively. This group are seeing the fallacy of the distortion of the unenlightened scribes which are living in a false cult & have done despite to what truth they may have had & what enlightenment may have been there in the first place. ''As I teach in small groups my trusted friends and disciples.'' This is the Christ Himself speaking. Where the mention of the prophet 4
  5. 5. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death being 'male or female' I feel that the answer is found in what the Apostle Paul would tell us when writing to the believers at Galatia. ''There is [now no distinction] neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is not male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.'' Gal 3:28. Amp. The extract finishes with ''that my real unfalsified teachings will be revealed anew.'' I personally would interpret this to mean the the truth that was understood 'before Abraham was I Am' will be revealed anew which are referring to ''The knowledge of the Laws of The Creation'' along with the understanding of the wonderful plan that God has for the man-child in the very soon expectations for the corporate body of Christ. The Evolution Of Increasing Revelation! Actually to my way of thinking it is very simple in that we as mortal & spiritual beings keep on making the same mistake over & over, in saying this we would remember the positive side which includes the old adage ''he who never made a mistake never made anything.'' What I am about to share came to me so clearly this morning; most of us already know the principal but the one fault is that most of us are so sure that it never pertains to ourselves. Since the light - from one aspect only - has began glinting through since the time of Jan Huss, 1373- 1415 who incidentally was the link between John Wycliffe & Martin Luther; Huss was burned at the stake for his convictions, of which we are well aware is still a very common occurrence for light bearers even today. We then move along to Martin Luther 1483-1546 & through to Darby etc & down the line through to the early 1900s Pentecostal move then into the latter rain movement until today. For generations men & women, Churches, groups of people have been receiving revelation from God & there is no doubt that many were inspired of the Spirit as no one man has a priority on the truths of spiritual consciousness. Why? For it is innate in every man, unfortunately the inspiration received is usually magnified & thrown out of proportion until virtually nothing else matters except that the revelation given becomes overstressed & then – unaware to the proponent - becomes warped, a message of its own & then the author becomes bogged down & entrapped & cannot see anything else but his own, out of proportion message with its own one eyed slant. Now please do not think that any of us are exempt to this happening & we are not bringing this with a biased attitude, I can only share what I am given, we are trying to impart the thought that was clearly given to me this morning to open the prison doors & to aid in bringing the ''End Of The Day Of The Sword.'' Now the real problem is not so much with the first who received the inspiration but with the next generation, they because of perhaps personal involvement are fully assured that the group or person have received from God become very one-eyed & place their faith more in the group or person than in the Christ who is the ''Author and finisher of our faith'' Heb 12:2, so the outcome even in our own ranks is in one way very little different from what has been happening for yonks the world over & as we have mentioned before we are so sure that this could not happen to any of us especially ourselves. Now if we put anything to paper that would have a negative or downgrading influence without a positive & uplifting influence what good is accomplished to & for the body of Christ. ''So the Evolution of increasing Revelation'' is showing to us things that we need to be made aware of what could perhaps be in our midst that we may cast them aside & forge ahead, for go ahead we will, for our Eternal Consciousness has planted His Son within in us that we will not fail but succeed for when we are are told in John 12: 32 ''I will draw all men to myself '' the word draw is actually akin to DRAG, according to STRONGS # G138. So realising that we God's IMAGE in our lowered consciousness Rom 11:32, are actually being spiritually DRAGGED to Himself, this once again gives us much confidence in a loving God who has our personal & corporate interest at heart. The Sword With A Twist! In my opinion one of the most diabolical laws that has affected man's length of life is the thinking that three score & ten or 70 years is the allotted life span that man has been given. Billions have taken this into their consciousness & this has affected generation, upon generation. I personally feel that it is a lie of 5
  6. 6. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death the worst kind. The fruit of this lie is still affecting man today. First of all let us look at where this theory was derived. In the 90th chapter of the Book of Psalms we read. ''For we [the Israelites in the wilderness] are consumed by Your anger, and by Your wrath are we troubled, overwhelmed, and frightened away. 8 Our iniquities, our secret heart and its sins [which we would so like to conceal even from ourselves], You have set in the [revealing] light of Your countenance. 9 For all our days [out here in this wilderness, says Moses] pass away in Your wrath; we spend our years as a tale that is told [for we adults know we are doomed to die soon, without reaching Canaan]. 10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten (seventy years)--or even, if by reason of strength, fourscore years (eighty years); yet is their pride [in additional years] only labor and sorrow, for it is soon gone, and we fly away.'' Psa 90:7-10. Amp. ''For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told. 10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.'' Psa 90:9-10. KJV. Below we are quoting from the footnote at the bottom of the 90th chapter in the Amplified Bible. ''This psalm is credited to Moses, who is interceding with God to remove the curse which made it necessary for every Israelite over twenty years of age (when they rebelled against God at Kadesh-barnea) to die before reaching the promised land (Num. 14:26-35). Moses says most of them are dying at seventy years of age. This number has often been mistaken as a set span of life for all mankind. It was not intended to refer to anyone except those Israelites under the curse during that particular forty years. Seventy years has never been the average span of life for humanity. When Jacob, the father of the twelve tribes, had reached 130 years (Gen. 47:9), he complained that he had not attained to the years of his immediate ancestors. In fact, Moses himself lived to be 120 years old, Aaron 123, Miriam several years older, and Joshua 110 years of age. Note as well that in the Millennium a person dying at 100 will still be thought a child (Isa. 65:20).'' For those who were perhaps not aware of the above this will no doubt help enlighten you so to take away the curse of this fallacy. This is loosing more truth into our consciousness in helping that transgression, disease, & death are thereby being lessened. Comes The Hour Comes The Man! One of the most startling verses of scripture that I have had opened to me of late is the second verse of Romans 8. ''For the law of the Spirit of life, in Christ Jesus, hath made me free from the law of sin and death.'' Rom 8:2. Webster. Please notice the word HAS; Past tense. In the past a number of very spiritual men have taken this verse & seen some of the power of it & gained a certain insight into its incredible meaning & have accomplished great signs wonders & healing-s. One of these among others was the late John G Lake. When he first went to Africa he found himself in the middle of a terrible plague & to get rid of the dead affected bodies he helped to bury them, the doctors who saw this said to him (by handling the dead bodies you are signing your own death warrant,) John Lake informed them; 'No! The moment any germ touches me it dies.' In short the doctors decided to test him & were quite amazed, they asked him his secret, his answer was this ''For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.'' Rom 8:2. KJV. He also stated; This verse is activated in my life constantly for I believe it & stand on it. This is what was revealed to him, but if we take this verse to its limit, which a group of highly spiritual people will soon do, it is utterly amazing. I wish now to try to impart to you dear reader what God is saying to me right now as regards this verse. We must consider that there is not one promise that God has given us that has not already been accomplished. For instance ''By His stripes you are healed'' ''By his stripes you were healed'' ''You are more than conquerors'' ''are given to us great & precious promises that by these you might be 6
  7. 7. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death partakers of His divine nature'' The word might here does in no way mean maybe, over a period of many years the meaning has changed. GODS WORD would say ''will share'' ERV ''can share.'' All of these promises were given to us by the Lamb; When? ''The Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world'' Rev 13:8. The word world is from the Greek word kosmos. We read in John 17:5 ''restore Me to …. Your presence as I had with You before the world - kosmos – existed.'' In Eph.1:4a, we read, ''Even in His love He chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world.'' The word world here is once again from the word kosmos. Notice that it all happened before the foundation of the WORLD. ''For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. 5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. 6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: 7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. 8 For if Jesus (Joshua) had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.'' Heb 4:3-11. KJV. The works of God were finished from the foundation of the world. As God has ceased from all His works which have been completed & prepared He is now waiting for all who would believe to join with Him & cease from their own works & enter into His rest which does not entail any works on our behalf only the spiritual labour of entering His rest which also entails the faith of God which is at our disposal free gratis whenever we truly decide. ''The mystery of which was hidden for ages and generations [from angels and men], but is now revealed to His holy people (the saints), To whom God was pleased to make known how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ within and among you, the Hope of realizing the glory.'' Col 1:26-27 Amp. We notice that the Amp adds 'realising the glory.' Let us now look a little closer & see if we can gain the full impact of this Rom 8:2 verse, ''For the law of the Spirit of life, in Christ Jesus, hath made me free from the law of sin and death.'' Is this possible that He has already made us free from the law of sin & death & we have been walking below our status? In suggesting this I repeat that there is not one thing that we can think of that was not accomplished before the foundation of the kosmos, also the promises of God are yea & amen, in other words we were healed, we are partakers of His Divine nature; we are being encouraged by our Father who would encourage us to realise that it is already given to us past tense. In the mentioning of the above this will cause a further quickening of the truth of this law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus which is already within our spirits, our Christ consciousness, which is waiting for our faith to be activated on that which is already a part of us for in actual fact from Gods view we have already been made free from this law of sin & death, if you do not believe me, I suggest that you go to the Father the author of our mighty plan of eternal love & bliss & enquire of Him, this is done quite easily by asking your God in your eternal consciousness even in your true identity WITHIN. I ''For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus HAS made me FREE from the law of sin and death.'' Rom 8:2. Bible in Basic English. ''For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and of death.'' Rom 8:2. Darby. Has set me free. There is no one that we can be completely assured of that has accomplished this except Jesus but we are encouraged that ''He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit.'' It is my contention 7
  8. 8. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death that we can begin to stand on this truth even now. If we can receive it we can begin to have these words active for ourselves even now. Those who will be bold enough to stand on this & will activate this truth through faith in their lives could well be a part of the company that will have been set free from the law of sin & death & will be a part of the overcoming group that will destroy the last enemy being death. ''prove all things; hold fast that which is good;'' 1Th 5:21. ASV. All things are possible in Christ Jesus. We cannot go any further than our vision. We each & every one of us limit our possibility by the depth & height of our vision. One thing that will help determine our vision is the very first commandment. "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.'' Deut 6:4-5. English Standard Version. These words are also found in Mark 12:29-30. They are also found in Lk 10:27. Both are quoted by Jesus. The above Deuteronomy text would indicate a set apart people, a sanctified Ezek 44:16 people which God willing we hope to share in depth with you soon. As already indicated it is my conviction that it will be the man-child that will be those who will realise the full impact of Rom 8:2 verse & so by the spirit are able to realise the full meaning of this! What Is Our True Spiritual Status? ''For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature]. 10 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].'' Col 2:9-10. Amp. Within our spirits is God or the Godhead who created all things. ''We are complete in Him.'' When a baby is born the first thing we do is to check all the various parts of the body to make sure that it is complete, it may not yet be mature but it has all that is required to grow, learn & mature, it is complete. From the moment that we were born of the Spirit of God, we are complete, we may have a lot to learn in our maturing, the hands will grow larger & stronger as with every part of our body, but we have always been complete right from the very get go. Within our spirit right from the beginning is the one who created all things ''I and my Father are ONE'' or one Spirit, this applies to us also, ''in Him the whole fullness of Deity continues to dwell.....you too are filled with the Godhead.'' Would this be our true spiritual status? I would most assuredly say so!! Our faith needs to be activated so we truly begin to walk in these things. ''Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.'' Psa 46:10. KJV. Notice first of all that the word am is in italics which means that it is not in the original, it has been added to emphasise the interpretation that the unilluminated translators of that era wished to put on the verse. Let us ask ourselves how is God going to be exalted among the heathen or how will He gain exaltation in the earth? Would it startle you that the plan of God which is to every man is that He is not only among the heathen but He plans to be exalted IN the heathen. He is already there, but through illumination & revelation He plans to be enlarged & exalted in them further. Then to go a little further He also plans to be exalted in man who is from the earth earthy & to be exalted in their earth. IN their earth or in their earthly bodies, this is not to mean that the earthly mortal body is to be exalted. God Himself will be exalted within man. Let us now consider very carefully the first seven words of this verse omitting the word am. ''Be still and know that I God,'' For the sake of clarity please allow me the liberty of explaining it this way 'Be still and know the the I is God.' Who is the I? The I AM of course He is our one & only true identity. And for emphasis we again borrow from Amplified version of Col 2:9-10, ''And you are in Him...... you too are filled with the Godhead.'' Know this, you have within you the spirit that created the world. I wish to leave you with one last text on this wonderful subject. 8
  9. 9. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death ''I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for except YE believe that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.'' John 8:24. American Standard. Where it mentions in your sins this could be exchanged for in your mistaken identity. ''Therefore I said to you that you shall die in your sins, for if you do not believe that I AM, you shall die in your sins.'' John 8:24. MKJV. Please notice that this time it is the word HE that is in italics & has been inserted. The simplicity of the verse is saying if YOU do not believe that your identity is the I AM, you shall like most believers die in your mistaken identity or in other words experience physical death. Those who truly believe that they are joined to & part of the IAM will not see physical death, these I believe will fulfil Rev 12:5, the birth of the man-child. How wonderful that we are told that we are JOINT HEIRS with Christ. I would remind us that quite often when Jesus referred to Himself He would bring us into the same category for instance. Jesus said ''I am the light of the world'' He also said '' You are the light of the world'' Mt 5:14. When He referred to Himself as being one with the Father He also said that we were one with Him, who is of course one with the Father. We reiterate that we are joint heirs with Himself. As Christ is the only Sovereign King of kings & Lord of lords.1Tim 6:15. Rev 19:16. We are also appointed kings & priests unto our God Rev 1:6 & 5:10. We shall reign on the earth. So if we dare to believe that we are in our true identity I AM we will not have to die in our mistaken identity but will in fact be changed from the mortal to the immortal whilst not ever leaving this earth. After those who are part of this group 'the man- child' have shared their message with the world then will come to pass the following. ''I will explain a mystery to you. Not every one of us will die, but we will all be changed. 52 It will happen suddenly, quicker than the blink of an eye. At the sound of the last trumpet the dead will be raised. We will all be changed, so that we will never die again. 53 Our dead and decaying bodies will be changed into bodies that won't die or decay. 54 The bodies we now have are weak and can die. But they will be changed into bodies that are eternal. Then the Scriptures will come true, "Death has lost the battle! 55 Where is its victory? Where is its sting?" 1Co 15:51-55. CEV. What wonderful plans our mighty God in Christ Jesus has planned for us in the future, yes the best shall certainly be last. Raising Our Thinking! If we think that God has kept the worst until the last we are in our thinking not even yet in the outer court. Many believers focus on the terrible things that men are prophesying & whether they be true or not, nevertheless I am keeping my mind on the wonderful things that God has in store for us ''The Best Will Be Last'' if we keep our mind on the negative it will show in our attitude & demeanour. I repeat God has kept the very best until last, the earth shall be filled with His Glory. Hear the following! ''But as truly as I live, ALL the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.'' Num 14:21. KJV. ''They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be FULL of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.'' Isa 11:9. KJV. We can keep our mind under the sole of our boot if we want to but as for me & mine I am focusing on the best & not on the worst, the truth is that God has kept the very best until the last. Availing Ourselves Of All His Benefits! I ask the question is healing in the atonement? If so I present another question. Are we because of our third day position exempt from the full benefit of what was accomplished on the cross all of which is found in the atonement? ''Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not ALL his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,'' Psa 103:2-3. English Standard Version. Please notice the words, - ALL of our diseases - which includes all sicknesses. In my opinion the fact must be settled once & for all that healing is in the atonement & is to & for every one of us NOW. If we are not believing ''for in Him all things 9
  10. 10. Christ The Antidote Regarding Death are possible'' how in Gods name are we going to have His best if we do not aim for it. ''Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we ARE healed.'' Isa 53:4-5. ESV. ''Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we ARE healed.'' Isa 53:4-5. American Standard Version. I very much like the word SURELY. This is a great encouragement to us all! ''And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.'' Isa 33:24. American Standard. Here we see that iniquity & sickness are once again united & as we well know are in the atonement for our whole salvation which includes both our transgressions & our healing. Please notice the confession, ''shall not say I am sick.'' I feel that it would be appropriate to add here, ''What God has joined together let no man put asunder.'' It is one thing to be misinformed & love that misinformation, strengthen ourselves in that lie & live below our true status if it affects only ourselves, but it is entirely another thing that if this position affects many others in that by being caught up in this influence they never even try to activate their faith to claim ''all of His benefits'' which we are told that we are not to forget. If ''healing is the children's bread'' Mt 15:26, I certainly know that the sons of God would not be eliminated. This wonderful truth is never going to disappear by putting our hands over our ears. Faith can only be activated if we know the truth & the truth is given to set us free. Free from what? Iniquity & diseases or sicknesses! This is the result of Calvary which is found in the atonement! It would be good for us all to realise that the result of the atonement is deep within our spirit man & is part of our true inner identity, yes the full result of the atonement is part of us & needs to be believed & released by faith from within ourselves. ''That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.'' Mat 8:17. KJV. The great Irish statesman Edmund Burke once wrote. ''The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.'' The End Of The Day Of The Sword! Ralph Knowles, June. 2014.
