.Part 16. in reality, who are we;

  1. 1. “Christ the Antidote regarding Death” “CHRIST THE ANTIDOTE REGARDING DEATH” Part 16. 'IN REALITY, WHO ARE WE?' For centuries man has made reference to the 'elixir of life' but really he has been searching in many ways & means for none other than the 'Resurrected Christ' experience. According to the inspired scripture, as forerunners, two at least 'that we know of' have attained to this 'in type', we are referring of course to Enoch & Elijah. Is this search really so strange? Because of a deep innate desire which is 'God given' in every man ; - the kingdom of God is within you, - man has desired to know the true reality of himself & his Creator & I say to all today, who are reading this essay that man is now on the cusp of not only knowing, but actually becoming, - for the becoming is in the realising - what God has graciously planned for those who would truly seek Him, & also he is now on the verge of manifesting the greatest experience that man has to date undergone. What is this experience that we are referring to? In Heb. 2: 6-10. “It has been solemnly earnestly said in a certain place, WHAT IS MAN that You are mindful of him, or the son of man that You graciously & helpfully care for & visit & look after him. 7. For some little time You have ranked him lower & inferior to the angels; You have crowned him with glory & honour & set him over the works of Your hands. 8. For you have put everything in subjection under his feet. Now in putting everything in subjection to man, He left nothing outside [of man's] control. But at present we do not yet see all things subjected to him [man]. 9. But we are able to see Jesus, Who was ranked lower than the angels for a little while, crowned with glory & honour because of His having suffered death, in order that by the grace (unmerited favour) of God He might experience death for every individual person. 10. For it was an act worthy [of God] & fitting [to the divine nature] that He, for whose sake & by Whom all things have their existence, in bringing many sons into glory, should make the Pioneer of their salvation perfect, [should bring to maturity the human experience necessary to be perfectly equipped for His office as High Priest] through suffering.”Then in verses 14-15. “Since, therefore, [these His] children share in flesh & blood [in the physical nature of human beings], He [Himself] in a similar manner partook of the same [nature], that by [going through] death He MIGHT bring to nought & make of NO EFFECT him who had the power of death --- that is, the devil--- 'accuser' or our 'mistaken identity'. 15. And also that He MIGHT deliver & completely set free all those who through the [haunting] fear of death WERE held in bondage throughout the whole course of their lives. This word 'might' is actually related to the word as in 'power & might' & does not mean 'maybe or perhaps'. All scriptural reference are from the Amplified unless otherwise stated. 'That He might deliver & completely set free ALL' “Those who through the [haunting] fear of death were held in bondage throughout the whole course of their lives.” Our great Creator & Saviour is right at this moment arranging that 'many sons are being brought into a glorious high place' that as they are able to overcome, they in turn will be able to 'pass on' the same heritage that has been given to them, & those who 'were held in bondage' were held by the fact that they had been believing what they had seen & been taught to date by the life style & testimony of all those around them who were under the 'power of death all of their lives'. Another way to describe it would those who have been under the influence & part of the 'mass consciousness' of the Adam humanity. This what we are referring to is a realisation of the truth as to who we really are, OUR TRUE IDENTITY. We are now in the throes of changing our 'fear of death beliefs' to GOD INSPIRED TRUTH'S, of which one is that we are 'GOD BEINGS' this realisation, as we grasp it fully, is what will 'completely set us free'. Our Christ & Saviour is right now reprogramming many of us into, 'A higher consciousness, a Christ consciousness' This is both bringing us back to our original understanding of when we existed in God in the very beginning, 1
  2. 2. “Christ the Antidote regarding Death” & also bringing us forward to gain what our forerunner our elder brother gained for us when He partook of our same nature 'a mistaken identity' & that by going through death 'made of no effect' the power of that 'lowered consciousness' which is the accuser 'diabolous' or the diabolical one, the false informer, our lying 'mistaken identity' or our misinformed deceived soulish flesh man; And what He Christ gained for us was not only a glorified body but also He became 'a life giving spirit' paving the way for us to realise that what He gained, is our inheritance, also that He is now 'bringing many sons into glory' & this means as is written by Obadiah.21. “And saviours – deliverers - shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; - flesh man - & the kingdom shall be the Lords.” 'Many are searching wrongly' “You search & investigate & pore over the Scriptures diligently, because you suppose & trust that you have eternal life through them. And these [very Scriptures] testify about Me! And still you are not willing [but refuse] to come to Me, so that you might have life.” John 5:39-40. Many today & in the past have looked at these words & thought that in just reading the words alone that this would give them some magic change, perhaps because of the fact that they understood the story of Moses, Samuel, Elijah etc. Jesus is informing us here that unless we are willing to acknowledge that these scriptures are referring to Him, His life, His death & resurrection & that unless they are applied to our lives, that these Scriptures & words account for nothing, until! …... We can read them until doomsday 'so to speak' 'And still not be willing [but refuse] to come to me, so that you might have life'. Now to bring this to where many of us are today, which is to do with the Holy Place which equates to the 'Secret Place of the Most High' or our 'true identity'. I wish now to quote from a statement that was made to myself by a very good friend Michael Wood, who some of you no doubt know. “It takes a profound work of the spirit, to come into the conscious awareness of a realisation, that the person I am is Christ, & the person I thought I was, is the Anti Christ.” In the realm of the Holy Place or 'mistaken identity' the understanding of 2 Thess. 2, has been a second level or 'Holy Place' one to most. In the - third level, - Most Holy Place or our 'Christ Identity' understanding, a truer deeper perception is realised. In verse 2b, we read. “[even to his actually] taking his seat in the TEMPLE of God, proclaiming that he himself is God.” V 8. “And then the lawless one ( the antichrist) will be revealed & the Lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of His mouth & bring him to an end by His appearing, at His coming.” Please realise what is meant by the word TEMPLE, God has one temple & one temple alone & that is MAN both singular & corporate. Acts:7:48-49. “However, the Most High does not – any longer - dwell in houses & temples made with HANDS; as the prophet says. Isa.66:1. The Lord Jesus is certainly revealing & slaying the 'antichrist, the man of sin, the lawless one,' & showing him up as to who he is & where his hidden dwelling place has been all this time & is right now in the process of bringing him to an end, by 'His appearing, even His coming' IN US. For further information on this subject, please refer to Part 5. “BREAKING THE BONDAGE OF ERROR.” We are stressing that any person who is in the 'Most The Holy Place' Tabernacles realm, & is also functioning in the 'Holy Place' Pentecostal realm, & this of course is within ourselves, - our temple, our house; - 'then we are a house divided' and a 'house divided against itself cannot stand' also 'Except the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain who build it.' Except we have a consciousness that is built by the spiritual hands of a Christ consciousness understanding, then we have a construction made by the antichrist, which is an 'in part, good & evil' way of thinking. Which is also a – glass darkly - lowered consciousness, inspired understanding. 'Good & Evil' I am now going to quote from an excerpt by Ray Prinzing. "And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is 2
  3. 3. “Christ the Antidote regarding Death” become as one of us, to know good and evil..." Genesis 3:22) In a generation such as this, with confusion on every hand, and pressure and tension increasing day by day, we find the prayer of the Psalmist finding a response, deep within our hearts, "O send out Thy light and Thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto Thy holy hill, and to Thy tabernacles." (Psalm 43:3). The subject before us is such that apart from the quickening of the Spirit, our understanding is indeed unfruitful, but with the Spirit guiding, we shall share those thoughts which have been of strength and help us. In this short verse of scripture, chosen as our text we find some important clues as to the very outworking of our lives for today. It begins with the declaration of the Lord, "BEHOLD, THE MAN IS BECOME AS ONE OF US." We would especially note the word AS, for man did not become "ONE IN GOD" in the moment he partook of the forbidden thing, but he became AS for man entered into a dimension where he would now have to weigh evil over against good. But it was a counter-position against a true god-hood, it was not true god-ship, for in all man's pondering he would never arrive at the correct answers, for his facts would be clouded by his lack of knowledge, and prejudiced by his own lust and desire. Man was in a place where he thought himself to be god, but he was not the "free moral agent" which he supposed to be, though this delusion still exists in men today. We are persuaded, however, that God is apprehending a people, processing them through severe discipline with a view to their actually becoming ONE IN HIMSELF. "He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit." (1 Corinthians 6:17) "and I in Thee, that they also may be ONE IN US: that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me." (John 17;21). We are to be so joined to Him that we BECOME ONE IN GOD, identified as one IN Him, not just "as" Him, to become the first-fruits of the Himself creatures. "I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you children (or sons) of the Most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes." (Psalm 82:6-7). Man, in his fallen state, was not able to bear the load of divinity, but when God has finished His purging and discipline, removing all the SELF, carnal-mindedness, and restores us back into the pureness of His Spirit, then shall we be able to divide between the evil and the good, in perfect harmony with His will:- Unquote. At the moment whilst man is entertaining the fact that 'good & evil' is a valid way of thinking & still trying to discern between the two, he is still in the realm of 'seeing through a glass darkly' he is still very much deceived by his 'mistaken identity', who is 'the god of this world' Gen 3:5. 2Cor. 4:4. At this point I wish to clarify that the battle – so called - of the Holy Place way of thinking is not between good verses evil it is in the choosing between the 'tree of Life' & the 'tree of good & evil' of which both are within us. Many are, as I said earlier, are trying to partake of both, in other words trying to partake of the Pentecostal realm as well as the Tabernacle experience, we may as well face it, it simply will not work, if we persist then we need to 'remember Lot's wife' which is another way of saying consider the 5 foolish virgins. 'Some Wonderful Admonition' When the 12 leaders of Israel returned from surveying the promised land, one sixth of these leaders dug their heels in & would not budge from their self formed opinions or understanding, and so we read. “Do not harden your hearts, as [happened] in the rebellion [of Israel] & their provocation & embitterment [of Me] in the day of testing in the wilderness.” Heb. 3:8. Our real testing times usually come in the time of being in the 'Wilderness'. One of the greater reasons for the rebellion was that there were some strong misinformed leaders who were in 'deception' & because of their attitudes, strong reasoning's, & leadership qualities, were able to convince those who were weaker & did not need a lot of convincing. Why? Because it is human nature – mistaken identity - to want the easy way out. In verse 11-13 we read “Accordingly, I swore in My wrath & indignation, They shall not enter into My rest. 12. [Therefore beware] brethren, take care, lest there be in any one of you a wicked, unbelieving heart [which refuses to cleave to, trust in & rely on Him], leading you to turn away & desert or stand aloof from the living God. 13. But instead warn (admonish, urge, & encourage) one another every day, as long as it is called Today that none of you may be hardened [into settled rebellion] by the deceitfulness of sin [by the fraudulence the stratagem, the trickery which the delusive glamour of his sin - mistaken identity - may play on him]. 3
  4. 4. “Christ the Antidote regarding Death” As a privileged writer of these wonderful enlarging, enlightening truths it is my duty to tell things as I feel directed to do so. In one sense I do not have too much to do with the results, as I must leave that to the one who is directing me. In the past I have known a few men who I can now thank for being direct. I have learned that 'pussy footing' does not get us anywhere. Having said that I now present these very sobering verses which came forcibly to my attention only very recently. Matt.13:15. “For this nation's heart has grown gross (fat & dull), & their ears heavy & difficult of hearing, & their eyes they have tightly closed, lest they see & perceive with their eyes, & hear & comprehend the sense with their ears, & grasp & understand with their heart, & turn & I should heal them.” Then in Luke.8:10. “He said to them, To you it has been given to [come progressively to] know (to recognise & understand more strongly & clearly) the mysteries & secrets of the kingdom of God, but for others they are in parables, so that, [though] looking, they may not see; & hearing they may not comprehend.” These two verses I believe adequately describe the 10 Israel leaders who were being led by their 'mistaken identity'. It would also describe any of us today who would be so foolish to 'be hardened into a SETTLED REBELLION by the deceitfulness of our 'lowered consciousness' & miss out on being one of the 5 Wise Virgins. “So come out from among, [unbelievers], & separate (sever) your selves from them, - in your thinking - says the Lord, & touch not [any] unclean thing; - any glass darkly or antichrist inspired situation - then I will receive you kindly & treat you with favour. And I will be a Father to you, & you shall be My sons & daughters,- in the third realm, Most Holy Place experience - says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Cor. 6:17-18. 'The Only Solution to Death is Life' 'And this means Pursuing Life, & not fighting Death' I received a spiritual experience yesterday morning, which makes me to now realise that some of us – especially myself - have been alluding quite a lot, to the principles of the Most Holy Place rather than to the actual experience. Not that this is wrong; but I am persuaded that as we begin to get a real taste or really GO IN, it will affect us so much & shake us up 'this old Outer Court body'. It is so easy to speak & write about these things, but saints of God we are referring to an experience in GOD in the HOLY OF HOLIES. I am now persuaded that this is a much more 'in depth' matter than I have to date suspected. Now please do not jump to conclusions & think that I ever regarded this experience lightly, as I have been having wonderful experiences in God for many years, but there is an experience available that will leave what we have to date experienced 'as light compared to darkness', also LIGHT always dispels darkness. THE REALITY WILL COMPLETELY DISANNUL THE LIE. 'Be Still and Know that I Am God' Overcoming is not fighting or coming against anything, it is a pursuing of the one who said 'I am the Way the Truth & the LIFE' who is our TRUE SELF. The fighting or the coming against is to be found only in our 'flesh realm' Outer Court or our 'soul realm' Holy Place experiences. Which do I love the most the flesh or the Spirit! This ultimate experience that I am referring to is the 'Sabbatical rest' as found in Isa.11:10. Amp. NO MORE FIGHTING OR RESISTING. 'To be able to say that I know that I am the Christ!' There are no doubt a number of readers who are still partly in the Pentecostal realm who may not as yet feel confident in taking the next step in moving into the 'Most Holy Place' experience. Those who feel a witness in the spirit & a softening of your heart toward these truths, but there is still a lack of confidence because of a feeling of unworthiness; I wish to put everyone's mind at rest by explaining to each & everyone of us, why we all have the right to rise into this realm. First from the second realm point of view & then in simpler terms, from the 'third realm' understanding. It would be encouraging right now to read, Luke. 11:31-32. Amp. “Only 4
  5. 5. “Christ the Antidote regarding Death” aim at & strive for & seek His kingdom, & all these things shall be supplied to you also. Do not be seized with alarm & struck with fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom!” This is connected with first of all a - knowing that - 'I am - already - the righteousness of Christ'. In Rom. 4:2-3. We read. “For if Abraham was justified (established as just by aquittal from guilt) by GOOD WORKS, [that he did, then] he has grounds for boasting. But not before God! For what does the scripture say? Abraham believed in (trusted in) God, & it was credited to his account as righteousness (right living & right standing with God). So we see that our good works have nothing to do with our RIGHTEOUSNESS or right standing with our God. But today we believe & have faith in what our Jesus Christ established for us by His death & resurrection & it is 'credited to our account as RIGHTEOUSNESS or right living or standing with God.' Our right living does not bring the 'righteousness of God' into our lives, but contra-wise. A realisation of our 'righteousness in God' will cause us to change & this in turn brings about our right living. We now move onto verse 6 &7. “Thus David congratulates the man & pronounces a blessing on him to whom God credits righteousness APART from the works he does. Blessed & happy & to be envied are those whose iniquities are forgiven & whose sins -mistaken identities – are covered up & completely buried.” 'Not by works lest any man should boast'. Verse 10 &11. “How then was it credited [to him]? Was it before or after he had been circumcised? It was not after, but before he was circumcised. He received the mark of circumcision as a token or an evidence [and] seal of the righteousness which he had by faith while he was still uncircumcised---[faith] so that he was to be made the father of all who [truly] believe, though without circumcision & who thus have righteousness (right standing with God) imputed to them & credited to their account.” Now to enhance this thought a little more let us look at Rom.5:17. “For because of one man's trespass (lapse, offence) death reigned through that one, MUCH MORE surely will those who receive [God's] overflowing grace (unmerited favour) & the FREE GIFT of righteousness [putting them into right standing with Himself] reign as kings in life through the one Man Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One.” We notice here that those who avail themselves of this free gift, through faith 'reign as kings' & remember that it is the 'Fathers good pleasure to give you the kingdom.' 'The kingdom is already within us' Keeping in mind that even though the 'the kingdom' is within every man, there are various stages of activation & advancement. This comes through obedience to the dealings & wooing's of God. This is explained more fully in. 2.Cor.3:15-18. “Yes, down to this [very] day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies upon their minds & hearts. But whenever a person turns – fully – [in repentance] to the Lord, the veil is stripped off & taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, & where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom). And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendour from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is the Spirit.” When we are told that 'As the Father has life in Himself & is self-existent, so He has given to the Son to have life in Himself & to be self- existent. Jn.5:26. The understanding of this verse increases in glory as we realise that the Son is not just the one man Jesus Christ, but that He is now a corporate Son, consisting of many members & that the SELF EXISTENT SON now dwells in this CORPORATE SON of whom He is also the Elder brother. Now immediately the accuser, the liar, ANTICHRIST, our 'mistaken identity' would try to bring us out of a 'spiritual realm into an unbelieving flesh realm' & try to annul or invalidate this beautiful, powerful far reaching thought. As we begin to replace our second realm understanding for a deeper one, we realise that we have always had the RIGHTEOUS ONE dwelling within us right from the very beginning. Incidentally for some time the majority of the Christian world have been under a delusion that the word 5
  6. 6. “Christ the Antidote regarding Death” 'anti as in antichrist' only meant against. Part of the meaning in the STRONGS #473, Anti, substitution or in place of. #499, Antitupon, representative, like figure or counterpart. #4179, tupos, resemblance or style, model for imitation. So we see we have an imitation, a resemblance, a counterpart, a substitution or in place of, like figure, & imitation. Is not this what our mistaken selves have been doing for so long trying to replace the the 'the Christ' who is our 'true identity'. This is in actual fact the true nature of the 'antichrist' or our 'mistaken identity'. 'Who Are We?' With many of the things we have read in the past, the deeper meanings have not been opened to us simply because we have not searched or understood. We that have had our eyes opened to the revelation of 'Tabernacles' are a very privileged people indeed. “To you it has has been given to know the secrets & mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has [spiritual knowledge], to him will more be given & he will be furnished richly so the he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away.” Matt.13:11-12. In the 28th Chapter of Genesis & verse 15b. We read. “And I will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done all of which I have told you”. Many times God is sharing with us deeper meanings & truths even in the simple things, He is revealing to us His nature. The song that Linda Musgrove so beautifully sings, describes our thought perfectly. I'll take you back to where you were in me, Before the fall of man. I'll restore your soul, I'll reconcile your heart, I'll give you back your true identity. ------- I'm removing the veil from your eyes, That you may clearly see, You will be with me in Paradise, On this earth you'll walk with me. ------------- “How the gold has become dim! How the most pure gold has changed! The hallowed stones [of the temple] are poured out at the head of every street. The noble & precious sons of Zion, [once] worth their weight in fine gold---- how they are esteemed [merely] as earthen pots or pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter.” Lam.4.1-2. The gold that is in every man has become dim in most people today, the only gold that man has within him is the beautiful, valuable spiritual substance of Christ Himself. This gold cannot be seen with the natural eye. Oh yes God can see it & when he looks at you & I, that is what He sees & loves in you, for you are part of Himself, made in His Image from His very own substance SPIRIT, & as we change from day to day & the Christ in us enlarges in our understanding, we too are given the same Christ-like vision & we see the Christ in EVERY MAN. Man was made a little lower, LACKED from Elohim. 'The hallowed stones of the temple are poured out at the head of every street'. God's rightful place for His stones which is for every man is in the beautiful Eden'ic paradise within himself & He wants every man 'to be like spiritual stones & built into a spiritual house, for a holy, dedicated, consecrated priesthood & to offer up spiritual sacrifices unto God.” We are speaking of man's rightful position in God. But Oh the prophet sees it, & he has a burden for the 'Noble & precious sons of Zion, who were once worth there weight in fine gold'. He sees how these noble & precious sons are now 'esteemed merely as earthen pots or pitchers' He sees that the majority of mankind only 'look only on the outward appearance' & would not have a clue as to the true identity of MAN he sees that man - in general - is blind to the fact that actually these 'earthen pots house the gold; God Himself' & are in reality DIVINE BEINGS if you please. And today our wonderful God is raising up a Kingdom of Priests 'A Melchizedeck Priesthood' to perform the office of a Priest to the whole of mankind, and they in turn will reveal to man his true spiritual self, his 'true identity' thank God! These priests will have no 'mistaken identity' in them whatsoever, these Priests will not manifest any other identity than the 6
  7. 7. “Christ the Antidote regarding Death” Christ Identity, these Priests will be without 'father or mother', these Priests also will have the power of a 'perpetual, endless life'. These Priests belong to 'another tribe' or of a different origin, than what human-kind has up to date known. These Priests also have power but their power is from a source not before found in many & it emanates from LOVE, for they are the personification of the lover of lovers GOD HIMSELF. Why? For God Himself will once more MANIFEST HIMSELF IN FLESH, & is doing so – proportionally – right now in a many membered, corporate, Priesthood. For we are at the present moment crossing Jordan. 'The Will of God for Us Now' These thoughts that I am sharing here, are mingled with some thoughts that I gleaned from an unsigned article which I thought would be helpful to us all: Much is on the horizon Saints, to go even further it is all within us now & we need not seek anything outside of ourselves for all we need is in the KINGDOM OF GOD which is within us, & are we not admonished to seek ONLY the Kingdom first, & all of these other needs & desires will be fulfilled. We must understand that we already have the kingdom of God within us. What more can I have? As I abide in that Kingdom and I am still, the feeling of God‘s presence comes alive in me; there is an awareness that I am one with God and that God is one with me. There is nothing more to do: just to be quiet and let my heart overflow with gratitude. The Christ consciousness that is realised, is in itself the health and the bread and the meat and the wine. It is not that you gain understanding and then do something with it, but when you receive enlightenment you have nothing further to do, for it is doing and being. You are but the beholder of what this light is doing and in turn you become what Jesus said: ---'light unto the world'. That light comes by faith. That faith produces understanding. That understanding is attained in that moment when you have no more external desires, when you have the knowledge that it is only God's grace, God's will, and God's spiritual law that you are desiring to know. The moment you stop chasing something, it begins chasing you; the moment you stop desiring something, it comes into your experience; the very moment you stop running after something, it begins running after you. As your desire for anything, anybody, or any condition in the external world comes to an end, you begin to live this inner life of conscious oneness with God, and then your external life begins to take care of itself. Then comes the fulfilment of Jesus words: 'no one can come to the Son - guilt free relationship - except the Father draw him'. Then there is an invisible Presence, Something that you cannot see, hear, taste, touch, or smell, going before you to make the crooked places straight, to prepare mansions for you, and to bring unto you your own. When you no longer want that which is external and which you believe is for your good and when you are willing to let God fulfil Himself as you and abide only in the desire for spiritual realisation, you will find that you have nothing to ask for except to be a beholder of God's provision: your dwelling place, your transportation, your food, your clothing, your housing, your employment, your investments. Whatever is of a rightful nature that should be a part of your human experience comes to you because it is a law that the 'Word becomes flesh', becomes experience, form, and effect, not by virtue of what you may do, but merely by virtue of God's grace, your inner life of contemplation and realisation, a life of 'living, moving, and having your being in God' and having God live and move and have His being in you, so that God and you are eternally one in realisation. I would also say that in actuality we are eternally one with Him right now! We always have been & always will be!! So seek the Kingdom first & you too will also realise it. 'Awaking' “As for me, I will behold your face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with your likeness.” Ps.17:15. KJV. At the moment we are not yet fully awake. “Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, & relied on Christ, the Messiah). Rom. 13:11. Amp. The final deliverance of our salvation 1Pet.1:5. 'The salvation to be revealed in the last time' is nearer now than when we first 7
  8. 8. “Christ the Antidote regarding Death” believed. The reality is only in the fullness of Christ in – the secret place of the Most High – nothing less, or in the 'realisation of our true identity.' In Isaiah.57:15. We read. “For thus says the high & lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy” I dwell in the high & holy place, with him also that is of a contrite & humble spirit, & to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” Here we read of a most wonderful gracious God, who deigns to share Himself with those who have humility. When we see the true heart of a loving caring Saviour who is longing to share Himself with those who are of a like nature to Himself, how can we not humble our attitude toward Him so that in due time we also may be exalted in Him. For has not our wonderful Creator proven to us His humility in 'though being rich yet He became poor', He also, “Stripped Himself of all privileges & rightful dignity, so as to assume the guise of a servant in that He became like men & was born a human being. And after He had appeared in human form, He abased & humbled Himself still further & carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross! Therefore because He stooped so low God has highly exalted Him & has freely bestowed on Him the name that is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should (must) bow, in heaven & on earth & under the earth. And every tongue [frankly & openly] confess & acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Phil.2:7-11. The crux of the matter is that God is simply asking us to be like Him in HUMILITY & when we do we shall also be like Him in nature & power. Oh the simplicity in God, it is in the LOWERING & THE RAISING. In other words after the complete 'AWAKENING' - then comes with it the - 'LIKENESS', which is our TRUE IDENTITY.
