PART ONE

INTRODUCTION

Greetings, brothers and sisters, in Christ;

I want to say, in the beginning, that IF, you don’t know who you are, most of this series, won’t be understood. I, also, want to be very clear. When I speak of “we”, or “us”, throughout this series; that I am not referring to the “ordinary” man or woman that we “appear” to be, in the natural. I am referring to the Christ, that we truly are.  Although, we are many members, and members in particular, we are ONE BODY, with our Father, Jesus, as our Head and we cannot be separated. Not by, “spiritual people”; not by doctrines; not by natural possessions or the lack of natural possessions.

We are right where Father wants us to be, and we have exactly what He wants us to have. We are coming into UNITY of His Word; and we ARE united in the Spirit, and I realize this the more I talk to the brethren, on the phone, online and in letters.  Some, I have never heard of before. Most, I haven’t met, face to face; but, praise Father’s Name, we know each other in the Spirit; also, what is coming forth through the Spirit. hallelujah!!!

We may not, all, be clear on what the other is saying, about different things, but, we agree to leave it in prayer. IN LOVE!

EPH 4:3, “Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Then, I’ll get a phone call, and the person will say, “Linda, I got it, I understand!”.  Or, I’ll be washing dishes and Father will put a thought into me, about what someone had said to me, but, at the time I couldn’t get understanding of their words. And then, WHAM!! There it is!! Father gives me the understanding of what had been said!!

There’s a brother, that I recently met, online. It is SO awesome, how our thoughts, just work together!! He’ll say something, and I finish it, or visa versa! It could be a little scary, IF, I didn’t know it was of the LORD!

But, what I’m saying is this; the brethren are coming into UNITY in Father’s Word. And this is what MUST happen, for the full manifestation of the Sons of God to become COMPLETE.

EPH 4:13, till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:”

It is not as some are teaching, that we are WAITING for Christ to manifest through us, HE IS manifesting NOW, and HAS BEEN ever since He sent the Holy Spirit!! And the unity, between the brethren, that’s happening, is bringing forth the fullness of the manifestation.  Hallelujah!!

ROM 8:9, “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, IF so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you..”

You and I have got to realize what was accomplished, on the Cross, by Jesus… actually, before the foundation of the world.  I love what a brother said to me:

Quote; So when Jesus said IT IS FINISHED, you really see that there isn’t NOTHING that we can’t accomplish for the kingdom as long as we are IN TUNE with Father’s speaking, from the spirit realm, INTO our spirit. Or, as I am strongly thinking, FATHER’S realm is INSIDE us, has been since the baptism of the Holy Ghost,” End Quote.

AMEN to that, my brother!!!  (Remember who the “we” is, those who KNOW WHO THEY ARE, IN FATHER.)

When Father started speaking to me, about the changing of the body, He used the example of intercourse. (I don’t mean to offend, and when Father gives examples, we can’t be offended, IF we are hearing in the Spirit). But, this is what He showed me.

There is a Lover and there is a rapist. In the act of intercourse, the semen is placed in the female, by the male (whether he be lover or rapist). That seaman produces a seed, a fruit. Now, for the seed or fruit to come forth, a process is gone through. The process is the SAME, exact process, regardless of which seaman is doing the producing. Whether it is the seaman of the lover or the rapist.  In the O.T., a rape was a crime against the FATHER, of the one raped.

When Father, gives us a Truth, and we take that Truth and force OUR meaning to it, it has been raped. It will produce a seed or a fruit, but the difference between the Truth and the raped Truth, is that the later, produces death. It is a crime against the Father, of the victim!!  Father gives us simple Truths, and with trying to make it sound “so religious”, we cause a death to the “victim.”

Prov. 18:21-20, “A man’s belly (heart) shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.  (21) DEATH AND LIFE ARE IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”

Now, when some say, “Christ LIVETH, not me.”  That is the fruit that they shall be filled with. This is a Truth of our Father. When some deny that they are Christ, that is the fruit they shall be filled with. THIS IS THE WORDS OF A RAPIST!!  If one cannot understand a simple truth, why not take it and put it on a shelf, until the Holy Spirit brings understanding?  To say that Christ has not been manifesting through us, is the SAME as saying, “the Holy Spirit hasn’t been doing anything, in us.”

In this series, I hope that what is said will be put on a shelf, by those who don’t understand it NOW. He will bring forth understanding. Father does NOT give revelation, that IN HIS TIME, He doesn’t bring understanding of that revelation.  Amen?  So , wait on Him for understanding.

PART TWO

JESUS, PART MAN AND PART GOD?

If you want to come to a Truth, just tell Father that you want HIS truth, not man’s teaching. As promised, “the Holy Spirit will lead us in ALL truth.” (John 16:13) The truth of God will set us free, to be who we are intended, by Father, to be.

#1 The first thing we have to do, to get a Truth, is lay aside EVERYTHING that we have previously been taught!!  We have to take, not just a few scriptures, but we have to search through MANY scriptures to come to a truth, and allow the Holy Spirit to lead you and to reveal understanding.  Also, scholars are finding that there have been many mistakes made in the translating, from the original languages, into the King James language, of the bible. As we know, Jesus did not speak the King’s English of the King James Bible. You need to get a Bible that has different translations. The one that I use is the Eight Translation New Testament Bible. It contains
(a) King James Version,

(b) The Living Bible ,

(c) Phillips Modern English,

(d)Revised Standard Version,

(e)Today’s English Version,

(f) New International Version,

(g) Jerusalem Bible,

(h) New English Bible.

The ones that I have found that is closer to the original writings of the Bible are:

(1) Phillips,

(2) Jerusalem,
(3) New English Bibles.

I personally love the Phillips and Jerusalem Translations.

As we know, the Bible was not a Bible, as we know it today; it was Letters that Father inspired the writers to write. These Letters were passed among the groups of people, and recited at different cities, in different house meetings. There were no chapters, or, numbered verses or any punctuations. Many times with the Bible, the way it is today, gives one the idea that when you finish one chapter, that’s the end of the subject being spoken of. But, that’s not true. A good example of this is Heb 11 and 12. At the last verse of chapter 11, the subject is continued in chapter 12.

With this said, let’s continue with our study. Jesus, Man and Part God?

The first thing I want to draw your attention to, is our God, being a Just God.

Is 45:21 “Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together; who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a Just God and a Savior; there is none beside me.”

Acts 3:14 “But ye denied the Holy One and the Just One, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you.” (Job 4:17, Prov. 11:1, Zeph. 3:5, Zech. 9:9, Acts 7:52, 22:14)

The above scriptures, tell us plainly, that our God is a JUST God. This means in all that He does and says, He is a fair and honest and Just God, whether we understand His reasons for things done and said, or not. The question that I want to ask is this: If you were an iron worker and I was a seamstress, and I came to you and said, “Look, I want you to make a wedding gown for the Queen of England, and it has to be perfect.”   Would I be, being fair and just to you, to expect you to do something that you knew nothing? No I wouldn’t! You are qualified as an ironworker, not a seamstress. Think about it. I could give more examples, but you think some up for yourself, before you read any further. OK?

Would it be JUST and fair of God, (NOT THAT HE OWES US ANYTHING!!) , but would it be fair for Him to say, “Linda, I want you to do EXACTLY what Jesus did when He was on earth, as  part God and part man? Now, we’re not down-grading God, in anyway, here, we’re being HONEST, so we can get to HIS truth.

No!! It wouldn’t be fair for God to ask that of us. We could not and cannot do that, as a mortal man (as we’ve believed), because Father had not awakened us to Who we really are), but right now, we’re talking about the man Jesus, being God, while on earth.  And that’s what we’ve been taught all these years, that God wants us to be exactly like Jesus, even though He had the advantage of being part God and part human!   Our God, IS NOT like that. He is honest, upfront, JUST and “a respecter of NO man”, not even the flesh man, Jesus!! (Acts 10:34)  He is leading us the exact same way that He led Jesus. (John 5:19, 30)

Now let’s look to see, if Jesus was sent to be our Pattern, to follow. Now, we know what a pattern is. It is something that one follows to accomplish the same thing that the pattern had accomplished. Look at 1Tim 1:16

1Tim 1:16 “Howbeit for this cause I obtained much, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all long-suffering, for a PATTERN to them which should hereafter believe on him to (into) life everlasting.”

Rom 8:28-29 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE, (vs. 29) For whom He did foreknow, he also DID PREDESTINATE to be CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON, that he might be the FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY BRETHREN.”

All right, these verses show clearly that Jesus is the Pattern, He came to earth to lay a pattern for us to follow. The 2nd verse shows clearly, that God DOES expect MANY to come into the IMAGE of our Pattern, Jesus.  Are we in agreement so far?  (*John 14:12, *1Cor 15:51-53,  *Col 2:9-12)

Heb 12:2 “….The author and finisher of our faith..(Jesus)”

The word “author”, used here, is rendered in many translations as: beginner, captain, pioneer, leader. The word “finisher” is rendered: perfecter, perfect example, perfection.

Jesus’ FAITH was perfect and complete. Why?  BECAUSE HE BELIEVED EVERY WORD, OF GOD that was written in the Torah!  Not because He was half God, but because He knew God, ours and His Father, cannot lie!  Jesus was 100% sure that what Father said was true. He had real faith. Along the way, in our studies, we need to stop and ask ourselves, Do I really believe that?

Gen 3:22, this is God speaking about Adam (mankind).  He says “the man (Adam) is become as ONE OF US, to know good and evil”…  (I will be doing a study before long on Genesis and see exactly what Adam (mankind) was.)

John 10:34, this is Jesus speaking, “Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, I said ye are gods?”

Now, honestly, do we believe these 2 scriptures? No we don’t!  As a matter of fact, we get offended when teachers say them!  Why ,because we don’t understand it and we are looking at ourselves through natural eyes!!  I looked up this word “gods”; Heb #430, Greek 2316, it means exactly what God’s name (one of His names) in the OT, ELOHEIM.  Here is the definition of ELOHEIM, from the Companion Bible, appendix #4: this word, Eloheim, occurs 2700 times. It’s first occurrence connects it with creation, and gives it, its essential meaning; a creator. It takes male and female to create. Remember God IS our Father and our Mother. And how did God create man?  Male and female. This word, Eloheim, is the male and female name that God was called in various places in the OT.  It indicates His relation to mankind. Eloheim is “the living Word.”  Eloheim is a PLURAL word!  Now I am not saying that we are Father God!  Be sure you understand that!! (I want to say so much, but I’ll wait till the study on Genesis). But, as our Pattern did, the flesh man Jesus, He got so much like the Father, while on earth, that They were One and couldn’t be told apart, unless, Jesus said “these are not My words, but my Father’s”. Jesus believed it, when the written Word (the Torah) told Him that He could be so close to Father that no one could tell them apart. BUT, notice, God the Father, WAS ALWAYS OVER JESUS, Jesus said, I don’t do these things of myself, the Father does them through Me!!”   Look up ALL the scriptures, written in red, Jesus is speaking, and see how many times He said, I can’t do this, it’s Father, or I only do and say what I hear My Father do and say. His faith was so strong, that everything that the Word said, that Father will do this or that, Jesus, knew without a doubt, it would happen. No matter what He saw in the natural, no matter what He didn’t understand, He BELIEVED the Word. It was Father’s Life, or Father’s Anointing that lived through the flesh man Jesus.

1Tim 3:16, “God manifested in the flesh.”, as He is doing NOW in US!!   Oh Hallelujah! I know, we’ve come to the place where you hesitate to agree with the statement I just made. (“no matter what He didn’t understand”, IF it was in the scriptures, Jesus believed.) right? Ok now we’re getting down to the nitty gritty. Let’s look at facts in the Bible about Jesus.

We’re gonna look at some different translations. And here is ONE VERY IMPORTANT thing that we MUST remember:

Rev 22:18-19   “if ANY man adds to… or takes away…” and it tells what will happen!  The problem today, is that MANY DO ADD TO AND TAKES AWAY from the written Word, to make it agree with THEIR doctrine. Mercy on us all.

When we read a scripture, we CANNOT say, yes, but, or, well… there can be no ifs, ands or buts added to any scripture to make it fit our doctrine!  It’s best to just admit, “I don’t understand this verse,” and pray, for the Holy Spirit to give us wisdom, understanding and knowledge of God’s Word, than to add to it or take away from it, to make it fit OUR thinking. (Eph 1:17-19)

Ok, let’s look at some translations.

Philippians 2:5-8

LIVING BIBLE: “Your attitude should be the kind that was shown us by Jesus Christ, who though he was God, did not demand and cling to his rights as God, but laid aside his mighty power and glory, taking the disguise of a slave and becoming like men, and he humbled himself even further, going so far as actually to die a criminal’s death on a cross.”

Phillips Modern English Bible:  “Let your attitude to life be that of Christ Jesus himself. For he, who had always been God by nature, did not cling to his privileges as God’s equal, but stripped himself of every advantage, by consenting to be a slave by nature and being born a man. And, plainly seen as a human being, he humbled himself by living a life of utter obedience, to the point of death, and the death he died was the death of a common criminal.”

TODAY’S ENGLISH BIBLE: “The attitude you should have, is the one that Christ Jesus had; He always had the very nature of God, but, he did not think that, by force, he should try to become equal with God. Instead, of his own free will he gave it all up, and took the nature of a servant. He became like man and appeared in human likeness. He was humble and walked the path of obedience to death–his death on the cross.”

These verses tell us plainly that Jesus WAS NOT part man and part God!! He knew it would not be a fair and just Pattern, if He had kept in His memory, the fact that He was God. Although, He WAS GOD, even while He took on the position of being the SON of God, it’s like He sat aside any memory of being God. There is so much more that could be said, but , this is clear enough. I want to tell you why, we have been taught that Jesus was part man and part God. It was an excuse! A cop-out!!  For us, to not have to admit that we DO NOT BELIEVE certain scriptures, which gets us off the hook!! There is one more thing I do want to show.

We know that our Father God, is an ALL KNOWING BEING!!  Right? Well, think on these verses:

Heb 5:8-14 “Though he were a Son, yet LEARNED he, obedience, by the things which he suffered. And BEING MADE perfect he BECAME the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him (vs11) Of whom we have many things to say and hard to be uttered, SEEING YE ARE DULL OF HEARING, For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God…”

Did you see, it said “he learned”? This is Jesus being spoken of here. He learned! Does a God have to learn ANYTHING? No I think not!!  God IS ALL KNOWING!! Jesus, as a flesh and blood man DID LEARN!!

I’m not going to print it out , but look at Heb 4:15, this scripture tells us plainly that Jesus WAS IN ALL POINTS TEMPTED LIKE AS WE ARE, yet without sin.

Our faith, in God’s Word, is not to the point that Father is bringing it too, but He’s raising it (faith) higher every second!! Hallelujah!   And IT’S OUR OWN FAULT, that we haven’t received the understanding that Father has offered us. We’ve depended on our pastor, sister, brother, everyone but God, to show us what this written Word is really saying!

BUT, PRAISE THE LORD, He’s waking some of us up and we’re going to Him, and we’re waiting till HE tells us what His Word is saying to us, in the Spirit and we’re moving WITH HIM!!  Glory to His Name!!

We MUST take that WORD and no matter what man tells us, or what our natural eyes see, we must agree with THE WORD OF GOD, and not be afraid of what people will say about us, when we confess HIS TRUTH, and not what man teaches, to make an excuse for why man, is not doing what Jesus did. He left a pattern for what we ARE to do!!   And some of us are walking it out, because we SEE WHAT He DOES AND WE HEAR WHAT HE IS SAYING!!!  Glory!! He IS GOOD!!!

Look at James 1:13 “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God; FOR GOD CANNOT BE TEMPTED WITH EVIL, neither tempeth he any man;”

So this should be clear to us, Jesus WAS tempted, but didn’t sin, because of His BELIEF in God’s Word, no matter what man said, or what His natural eyes saw, or what His Natural mind told him. If God’s Word said it, He believed it! God cannot be tempted, His Word tells us that. So, this does show us that Jesus had forgotten that He HAD BEEN GOD and would be again and He just mimicked His Father!

Now I’ll show you when Jesus took back His remembrance of who He was, before the foundation of the world. And of what power and glory He had had. He had walked this earth as a man, wholly a man, so that we could walk as He did, so He could leave us a Pattern to follow. To show us that we MUST do, what He did as a flesh man, and that is WHETHER WE UNDERSTAND IT OR NOT, WE MUST BELIEVE EVERY WORD OF GOD THAT TELLS US WHAT WE ARE AND WHAT WE CAN DO!

Look at John 17:4-5. Upon His resurrection, THEN, Jesus returned to the position, of BEING FATHER GOD, THE WORD.

John 17:4-5 “I have glorified thee on the earth” Jesus is telling Father, I believed EVERY WORD that You said, whether I understood it or not, regardless of what the Pharisees taught, regardless of people thinking I was crazy, I BELIEVED You,

Father “I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.” Jesus is saying to Father, I have shown everyone, that everything that You have told us, is true, whether they understand it or not, believe it!! I have laid that pattern that you gave me to lay, for them to come into the IMAGE OF CHRIST!!

And NOW, O Father, glorify thou me WITH THINE OWNSELF” HALLELUJAH!!!! Jesus is saying to Father, I want to be THE GOD THAT I WAS, that’s spoken of in John 1:1! But, He goes on to make sure we understand “WITH THE GLORY WHICH I HAD (PAST TENSE) WITH YOU BEFORE THE WORLD WAS.”

This is what the Truth is:

  1.   Gen 1:1, “In the beginning, God…
  2.   1 Tim 3:16, “God manifested in the flesh... (in the person of Jesus)
  3.   John 17:5, “glorify me with Thineself, which I had before the foundation of the world”. HE laid a Pattern, for what it takes to be God’s Son. The Word tells us :

4. 1John 3:2, “NOW ye are sons of God.

Jesus returned to the position of being God our Father and that move of His, left the realm of sonship EMPTY!!!   UNTIL we received the Spirit of God, to dwell within in and WE BECAME THE SON OF GOD, a many-membered body of Christ. It is NOW, US who is the Son and Jesus is back to being our Father. And God is NOW known by the Name Above ALL of the names that He had been known by in the OT, JESUS! All of His names in the OT, are now wrapped up into ONE NAME, ABOVE ALL NAMES, JESUS!!

It took Jesus 33 years to lay that pattern, so I’ll believe, for as many years as it takes for that manifestation OF HIM to appear, through me. Amen!!!

PART THREE

DO WE HAVE TO SEE PHYSICAL DEATH?

We need to change not only our thoughts, but, also our words. We hear, all the time, folks saying, “All we have to do is “Pay taxes, live and DIE!!”  We hear, “After 40, it’s all downhill, and then the grave!!”  All are claiming DEATH when, clearly, Father’s Word says differently.

Heb. 9:27, “And as it is appointed once to die, but after this the judgment:”

OK, Father’s Word tells us that we do have ONE death that we are to see. So, let’s check this out.

Rom. 6:3-9, “Know ye not, that so many of us were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man IS CRUCIFIED WITH him, that the body of sin might be destroyed that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead, is free from sin. NOW if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also LIVE WITH HIM: knowing that Christ being raised from the dead DIETH NO MORE; death hath no more dominion over him.”

Now, I KNOW, that there are those who are going to say, “Well, this is talking about JESUS.” But, you’d better take another look!!  This says “CHRIST”, not Jesus. I’m not going into what we have learned about that word “CHRIST”. Those who KNOW who they are, knows, that this word “CHRIST” is not Jesus’ name, it’s a word that describes WHAT HE WAS, when He walked the earth, “God’s anointed one.” We also, know that, Father says, “that we are not to know Jesus, anymore, after the flesh”, that flesh and blood man who walked the earth. (2 Cor. 5:16)

We are not babes, and we should KNOW HIM AS HE IS, as our Father. (John 17:5) WE are now Father’s Son. (1John 3:2)

Jesus IS OUR PATTERN! (1Tim 1:16) We are to look to ALL that HE DID, and WE ARE TO FOLLOW HIM to the “T”. So, we saw in Romans, that we have ALREADY DIED. Now, don’t go adding any if, ands or buts, they are not in the scriptures. I know that some will say, “well this was a “SPIRITUAL death”. Well, bare in mind, WE ARE IN HIS IMAGE! HE IS SPIRIT AND SO ARE WE! (John 4:24)  We are a Spirit that lives in a body and has a soul ! Folks, we HAVE GOT TO WAKE UP and face facts, HIS FACTS!!

So, how many deaths are we to see, according to HIS WORD? ONE! We met that death. We died on the Cross WITH JESUS, and was raised a new creature, a new species of people. 1Jonn 3:14, tells us clearly, “WE HAVE PASSED FROM DEATH TO LIFE.”  Accept it or reject it, it does not change the truth of this Word. The harsh truth is; EITHER WE KNOW WHO WE ARE, OR WE DON’T!!  

Another truth that tells us something that we need to know is:

Heb 2:9, “Now we see Jesus made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that by the grace of God, SHOULD TASTE DEATH FOR EVERY MAN!…”

But, let’s go on.

We know that the OT holds secrets that we need to look closely at, because the OT is a type and shadow of better things to come. (Heb 10:1). So let’s look unto those shadows.

IS 28:15-18, Because ye have said, we have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at AGREEMENT:”

Our very words and thoughts SHOW PROOF of this!! We CLAIM DEATH, like it’s an old friend!!
“we have made lies our refuge…”

You say, “how can death be a refuge?” Well, of course, most of us think that when we die, we get to go to “heaven”, way up there in the sky and live in mansions on streets of gold!!  That IS A LIE and we look to it as a “refuge”.

Some are even EAGER to die, so they can be in heaven!!!

VS 16, “Therefore THUS SAITH THE LORD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation, a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, A SURE FOUNDATION; he that believeth SHALL NOT MAKE HASTE!”

Is the truth of this beginning to shine through a little? Well, as the old saying goes, “You ain’t seen NOTHING YET!!”

VS 17-18, “Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet; and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. (18) AND YOUR COVENANT WITH DEATH SHALL BE DISANNULLED and your agreement with hell shall NOT STAND: when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.”

I suggest that you continue reading, here in Isaiah, but, I wanted to show the above TRUTH!!    IF WE BELIEVE, the covenant of death and hell has been done away with!!   Hallelujah!! WE DO NOT HAVE to stand in agreement with hell, OR with our covenant with death. Because of the “SCOURGE”, which is our Saviour, and our PATTERN!!  He DID NOT HAVE TO DIE, HE CHOSE TO DIE, for us! We are as He is, and we DO NOT HAVE TO DIE, EVER AGAIN!! So, what else does His Word say?

PS 102:18-21, “This shall be written for the generation to come; and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD, For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth; To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death; To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem:”

If this doesn’t make you SHOUT, you have to be REALLY DEAD!!!

1)     “written for the generation to come”.. that’s us folks, His 42nd generation!!

2)     “the people which shall be created..” He created us NEW CREATURES, when we resurrected WITH Him!

3)     “He looked down from His sanctuary”… where is His Temple? WE ARE! Is HIS SANCTUARY IN HIS TEMPLE? It better be or someone is in serious trouble!!

4)     “from heaven did the Lord behold the earth” between our ears is where “heaven” is, and we are the EARTHEN vessel that He beholds! Let’s wake up, folks, heaven is where HE IS. Is He in you? If He is, then, so is heaven. A glorious state of being. The place that folks go to when they die , is the SPIRIT REALM.

5)     This is glorious, “to hear the groaning of the prisoner”… you know who the prisoner is? It’s the CHRIST in us, groaningto be released, to manifest in this earth!!! Hallelujah!!

6)     “to loose those appointed to death” NOTHING NEEDS TO BE SAID HERE! I praise Him!!

7)     ZION & JERUSALEM“… what does Obediah tell us (vs 21)? “SAVIOURS (PLURAL) SHALL COME.” this word “saviours” means , in the Hebrew, CHRISTS! And “JERUSALEM” is NEW Jerusalem, in the Book of Revelation, and guess what? It’s not a CITY, IT’S JESUS’ MANY-MEMBERED BODY THAT IS MANIFESTING NOW!!

Shout people!  Allow this to be explained and confirmed by Father. Start working on your words, Start taking thoughts captive and START SPEAKING TO YOUR BODY!

When He said that He gave us LIFE, He meant it.

Amen and Amen! means SO BE IT –  SO BE IT!!

PART FOUR

WORDS AND SPEAKING TO OUR BODY

So far, in this study, we have:

Introduction

1. My Arm

2. Jesus, Part man, part God?

3. Do we have to see physical Death?

In this part, we are going to look at our Pattern, Jesus.  In this part we, also, want to look at our words and the power of them.  There’s a lot of Word, going around, about WHERE the body of the manifested Sons of God will be, once the manifestation is complete.  But, I think that folks are putting the cart before the horse. We need to learn ABOUT the body, it’s being changed, and how this comes about, BEFORE we start getting concerned about WHERE that body is going to be, once it is changed.

So, let’s start with our Father, Jesus. This scripture is, when JESUS appeared in the upper room, after His resurrection.

Luke 24:36-44, “And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? And why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself; handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.  And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?  And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. And he took it, and did eat before them. And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets and in the psalms, concerning me.”

Now, Jesus had just walked through the wall and the disciples there, and Jesus’ own mother, were afraid. They all thought that they had seen a ghost!  Because, what man could walk through a wall? It had to be a ghost!  UNTIL JESUS SPOKE. Then they knew that this was not a ghost!

One thing that I want to point out, here, is this, “all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the Law of Moses (which Jesus was STILL under WHEN He died) and in the prophets and in the psalms, concerning me.” Jesus, had emptied Himself of ALL DEITY, when He (as God) manifested in the person of Jesus Christ. (Phil. 2:6-8, 1Tim 3:16)  I think of it as, He lost all memory, of being God. (Everyone can look at it as the Spirit shows them.)  And we can see that Jesus, as a young child, had started to study the OT. (Luke 2:41-47), and He learned. (Heb 5:8)  Jesus began realizing who HE WAS THROUGH THE SCRIPTURES. He was NOT aware that He was the Son of God UNTIL He heard those Words spoken, at His baptism. “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”  He didn’t claim to be God’s Son until He was baptized.

A Re-Happening is taking place with us NOW.   Through the scripture, we are learning who we are, and the Holy Spirit of our Father, Jesus, is witnessing it to our Spirit!!   Hallelujah!!

Now, in order to understand that this (Jesus and God) were not two separate people, we need to look very closely to what the Word says, NOT WHAT WE’VE BEEN TAUGHT.  No where does it say, that Jesus HEARD GOD SPEAK THESE WORDS!  The Word says, “He heard a voice from heaven” speak the words, “This is my beloved Son”.  (Mt 3:13-17, Mt 17:5, Mark 1:11, Mark 9:7, Luke 3:22, Luke 9:35, 2 Peter 1:17 John 12:28)

Each verse tells us, that what was heard, was A VOICE FROM HEAVEN.

We’ve had the idea, that JESUS walked the earth in a literal, flesh body; and that Father God, stayed up in the “heaven”, up in the sky. But folks, the Word does not say this!  What we need to remember is that HEAVEN is NOT up in the sky!!  Heaven is a state of being. A state of pureness. A place of being in the presence of God!!! That is heaven.

We KNOW that as Jesus walked the earth, His Head (mind) was in the heavenlies. When Jesus heard this voice from heaven, it simply tells us that HIS REMEMBRANCE of Who He was and Who He had been, came back to Him.  We have made this so complicated, for the sake of “religion”.  Jesus was a simple man, and that’s how we need to take His Word, with the simplicity of a child, with understanding given by the Holy Spirit. Man’s writings, with a thousand words, where a few words could do the job, has only confused people… for the sake of sounding “religiously intellectual”.  It’s sad.  But, Father is revealing all, NOW!!    There were not two people talking to each other. It was GOD, after emptying Himself of all deity, REMEMBERING WHO HE WAS!!  He was LAYING A PATTERN for man to walk into. And man could not have seen Jesus as a Pattern, IF He had been part God and part man!!  So, God made it a JUST AND FAIR PATTERN that man could follow! Hallelujah!!

Ok. Now let’s look at JESUS’ body.  We’ve already seen that when Father manifested in the natural that He manifested into a FLESH AND BLOOD AND BONES, body, as the person, Jesus.  Jesus’ body was just like ours.  It hurt when wounded, it bled when cut, it grew tired, all of the same things that our body does.  I hope that there is no question about this. Jesus was flesh!  But, JESUS’ body changed!!  Hallelujah!!  And HE IS OUR PATTERN, so our body must change too!!

Keep in mind: I am not talking about those who DO NOT KNOW WHO THEY ARE!  Their bodies will not change UNTIL after they see death and they are called back into that glorious body!!!  I am speaking to those who KNOW WHO THEY ARE, CHRIST, GOD’S ANOINTED ONE, a member in particular of the many-membered Body of Christ! Throughout this study, this is who I am speaking about, when I say US. I am not speaking about those who are STILL WAITING for Father to make us His Christ, a work that He has FINISHED, and His Word tells us this. So, with that said, let’s go on.

Do we have to die for our body to change, like JESUS’ body changed? No!

1Cor 15:45-49, “And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul: the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which IS spiritual, but that which IS natural; and afterward that which IS spiritual. The first man IS of the earth, earthy; the second man IS the Lord from heaven. As IS the earthy, such are they also that ARE earthy; and as IS the heavenly, such ARE they also that ARE heavenly.  And AS WE HAVE borne the image of the earthy, we SHALL also bear the image of the heavenly.”

First, did you notice how this IS ALL PRESENT TENSE?  There is only one place that speaks of the future, “SHALL.” And that was in Paul’s day.  And it is definite!!  It doesn’t say, that we MIGHT bear the image of the heavenly, it says we SHALL!!  Most think that this is when they die and go to heaven. But, there is a people that will see this heavenly CHANGE without seeing a physical death!!  Praise His Holy name!!

We will look further into this Word, here in 1 Cor. in a bit, but let’s go on and look at Jesus’ bodily change.

As we saw in Luke 24, that Jesus said to those in the upper room, that He had “flesh and bones”.  He did not say “blood”, because He had poured out His Blood, at the crucifixion. But, He did have flesh and bones when He walked through the wall!! How can this be?  Let’s look at another scripture.

We’re going to be looking at PSALM 22. This is referring to the crucifixion of Jesus. And boy, does it give revelation!!  Father is SO GOOD!!!  It would do good, that you read all of this chapter, but I will be touching on only a few verses.

PS 22:14-17, “I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. My strength is dried up like a potsherd: and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.”

This is the agony that our Precious Savior went through, that we might be AS HE IS IN THIS PRESENT WORLD!  Bless His Heart!!   As I think of all that He suffered in order to make possible, for us, to be WHO HE tells us that we are, my heart, too, melts like wax in the midst of my bowels!!  I praise Him, and I give all glory to HIM!!  But, the next verse gives us such a great revelation, IF we allow the Holy Spirit to give us understanding.

PS 22:17, “I may tell my bones, …”

Awesome!!  HE SPOKE TO HIS BONES!!!  His bones were out of joint on the cross!  And yet, when He resurrected, HE walked through a wall!!

Everything of God has in it, healing of God, Life of God.  No disease, no death can exist in God’s Presence. And Jesus’ prayer was, “thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.”  We are the earth that Jesus spoke of. We are the earth or earthen vessels that Father dwells in and show forth Himself, through.

He is showing forth Himself TODAY! He is coming forth through a people, who like “little children”, BELIEVE, the things, the WORDS that He speaks. They have come into union with Him; they are THINKING like Him. In fact, His thoughts have become their thoughts… and those thoughts are becoming WORDS. With the words and the belief, things are happening!! Hallelujah!

Rev 1:17-18, “…Fear not; I am the first and the last: (18) I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”

People think that the work of Jesus was finished when He died on the Cross. But, His work wasn’t finished until He resurrected and His Christ resurrected with Him, US, His Body of Christ. (This was the work He came to do.) The first and the last. The Head and the Body. And the Head and the Body cannot be separated. Both became ONE. And the “UNITED ONE has the keys of hell and of death!! Hallelujah!!

In Rev 1:19, “the things” that Jesus is speaking of is found in verses 12-13, The many-membered Body that has come into His Image. “The things hereafter” is found in Rev 4:5.

As we KNOW, everything began with a thought and a word! And the Holy Spirit has been speaking to us forever, about this.

PROV. 18:21, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”

This is such a powerful statement!  But, attention is not really given to it UNLESS someone brings it up, and then it just as quickly forgotten. Deeper things are desired. Let’s look at these words and their definitions, and be astonished.

LIFE: In the Hebrew #2416, 2421= raw flesh; living thing; quick; keep, make, leave alive; preserve alive; quicken; be whole.

If these definitions, alone, doesn’t excite and encourage anyone, I just can’t understand!! And we are going to look at “quick and quicken”, a little later on.

DEATH; In the Hebrew #4194 = to die; the place or state of; ruin; be dead; just that.

TONGUE: In the Hebrew, #3966 = instrument of speech.

So, what PROV 18:21, saying is:

“Quickening of life; keeping life, IS IN THE POWER OF THE WORDS WE SAY OR SPEAK.” This is a verse, inspired of God, so it HAS TO BE TRUE!!!! The tongue or our words can take or give a life. Words can take the very will to life from a person.

PROV. 12:17-18 VERSES 17 and 18 are so full of WISDOM! I want to look at the last part of verse 18….”…but the tongue of the wise is HEALTH.”

This word, “HEALTH” is even MORE encouraging!

HEALTH: In the Hebrew # 4832 and #7495 = curative; a medicine; a cure; deliverance; remedy; sound; wholesome 7495= thoroughly make whole!!

PROV 15:4, “A wholesome tongue is a TREE OF LIFE: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.”

HOLESOME In the Hebrew #4832= the same thing as “HEALTH” in Prov 18:24.

PERVERSENESS In the Hebrew #5558 = distortion

BREACH In the Hebrew #7665-67 =a fracture; ruin; to crush; break in pieces, destroy; bring to the birth; broken (hand or foot.)

Our words are seed, brought to a birthing!! This birthing is either LIFE OR DEATH. IF a breach in the Spirit can be spoken, so can NOT ONLY LIFE, but the EXACT thing that our PATTERN did; HE SPOKE TO HIS BONES!! (PS 22:17)

We know from PS 22:17 that Jesus talked to HIS BODY, not only AFTER resurrection, but also the scripture shows that He did BEFORE His resurrection.

AFTER: LUKE 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.”

BEFORE: JOHN 8:59 “Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them and so passed by.”

hid In the Greek #2928 = to hide (self); keep secret; (by covering). Now, this could be taken 2 different ways. Either by putting on different clothes etc. or by the covering of the power of, though words that He had within Himself, and changed His appearance. So, I am not going to say, for sure, how this happened. But, in my spirit, I feel it was a changing of His appearance. Another, scripture speaks of when they were going to throw Jesus off of a cliff. (Luke 4), and yet He walked through the midst of them, UNSEEN! So, on this, we will have to allow the Spirit to give us all understanding, on.

But, scripture in PS 22:17 and the scripture in Luke 24:39, shows us clearly, that He did speak to His Body. Now, I’m not talking about a “name it and claim it” sort of thing. I’m talking about, THOSE WHO KNOW WHO THEY ARE, speaking and believing, the words that they speak and by following the PATTERN, will do this. I am not talking about mere mortal man, ONLY those who know that they ARE Christ, a particular member of HIS BODY, that Father is doing the speaking through!. We have got to lose these “religious” and “mystical” thoughts!! Simply because FATHER HAS ALREADY placed within us ALL that is needed to walk into the pattern that He laid for us. “We ARE complete in Him”!! And our thoughts become our WORDS!! And our WORDS bring LIFE OR DEATH, even, I believe, the changing of the body. (Understand, that this is by the leading of the Spirit!)

I think we will be finishing up this study in the next part, (unless Father plans more). We will be looking at, “in the twinkling of an eye”.

PART FIVE
   THE CHANGING OF THE BODY  

I would like to clear up something, before we start on this part of our study.  In the last part (part 4), I had a couple people who did not understand what I meant, at the beginning of the study. Maybe I worded it wrong. So I’d like to clear up the meaning.

From part 4: “Everything of God has in it, healing of God. The Life of God. No disease, no death; can exist in God’s Presence.”                                                               

If you remember from part 1 and throughout this study, we’ve said that this study is about those who know who they are.  We are speaking, throughout this entire study, of US, HIS BODY made up of many members, with members in particular. We’re speaking of HIS CHRIST on Earth; His Anointed One, with Him, Jesus, as our Head.  In this Body of Christ, which includes the Head and the corporate Body, there is no death, no sickness, no disease.  There is only the healing of God. Healing of=out from within God.  I am not speaking of the carnal Adam man. Rom 6, tells us that he IS DEAD.  1Cor 2 tells us that, that man understands not the things of the Spirit.  So, only in that Spirit Being, that we are, in His Image, can there be no death or disease.  IF we are still seeing ourselves as that carnal dead man, yes, there is death and disease.  But, knowing and believing and seeing ourselves as Father sees us and says who we are (Gal 2:20), can death and disease have no hold on us.  Let me state this CLEARLY: ONLY BY REVELATION OF GOD; UNDERSTANDING OF THAT REVELATION, GIVEN BY GOD; CAN WE SEE THIS. Only then can we focus on who we are, instead of who we were; and who we were is dead.    We are NOW creatures anew, in Father. (2 Cor 5:14-17). We have passed from death to life.(1 John 3:14). We are perfected (completed) forever. (Heb 10:14).  There’s so many more verses that we need to meditate on the truth that they contain, IF a manifestation is going to take place.  We must know who we are.  It is HIS LIFE that is manifesting; and in Him, is only healing, no death, no disease.  I hope that I have cleared up what I had intended to say… Thank you for calling my attention to this and Be blessed, in His Presence.                                          

1 Corinthians

We saw in the last part of this study, that Jesus, our Pattern, spoke to His bones, His flesh body.  And in speaking to His Bones, the atoms of His Body changed. He walked through a wall, in the Upper Room.  His flesh body performed supernatural acts. And remember, Phillipians 2 tells us that He (Jesus-GOD) had laid aside all Deity. He worked strictly out of the Spiritual beliefs and obedience. True, He was God who had manifested in the flesh, but He laid aside all advantages of being God, to lay a Pattern for us to return to our true identity.                                                   

There’s a song that we sing, and is from Acts 17:2, that says: “In God I live, In God I move, and it’s in God I have my being.”   But I like singing it like this: “In me He lives, In me He moves and It’s in me He has His being”: because He is living in and through us right now.  And IF He lives in us, then He speaks through us. And as the words come from our mouth, it is He who is speaking those words. When we speak to the joints, the marrow, the veins, and vessels, organs, the entire body; every atom of our body changes!!   We must be still and hear that still small voice speak to our body, until we hear no other voice. As this takes place, the body changes to that glorious body that death cannot touch.  Now, remember I am speaking of those who KNOWS that GOD IS LIVING HIS LIFE THROUGH US!! We are, His Christ, His Anointed One, not a carnal man doing the speaking. And it takes knowing who we are.  A carnal man can talk to his body, 24/7, and nothing permanent is going to change!    

1 Corinthians 15:50 “So this I say, brethren that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God: neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.”                 

We know that the Kingdom of God is within us. (Luke 17:21, Rom. 4:17)   “corruption cannot inherit incorruption”.  This word, “inherit” Means:

In the Greek # 2826,28= obtain; a sharer by lot; a possessor.  In a sense, this is the same principle of, works cannot make us something that we already are. It’s the same principle of, “a seed produces after its own kind.”

EX: As the carnal man (who is dead) we could not stand up and speak to our body, and expect change to take place. But, with the Christ in us speaking to our body, it will change.   Jesus is proof of this truth. And Moses is proof.  Did not Moses’ face glow with the LIGHT of God, after being in His Presence?  That’s because when Moses was in His Presence, God was SPEAKING!  The same with the Mount of Transfiguration. (Mt 17: 1-8, please read)

VS 1,  “And after six days Jesus taketh Peter (representing His Church) and James (representing bothers of Jesus) and John (representing The Beloved), and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart.”     

First we see for ourselves, who Peter, James and John represents. (in the verse above). We are His Church, His Brother and His Beloved. He “elevated” them into a realm in the Spirit. This also shows the 3 realms or levels of our walk, and how all are not ordained to the same level, in the SPIRIT, in their walk. The babe son in God (tecnion), the adolescent son in God (tecnon), and the mature son in God (weeas), doesn’t mean that all will attain to the same level of maturity. But, here we see that each was elevated in whatever level of their walk, that they were in.  This is the same principle that shows Father takes a people out of His people to elevate and will bring them into His Image. NOTHING is going to change God’s Plan!   The Christ in Jesus elevated these 3 disciples, into the Spirit realm.

 VS 2, His face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as LIGHT.”

Now, look at Adam. What does Adam mean?  It means, “red in the face.”  The face speaks of the glory of God or the nature of God.  Red speaks of blood.  Now, in a human, flesh person, when blood rushes to a particular part of their body that part of the body turns red.  Blood is what gives life to the flesh, physical, human body. Without blood the body could not live. UNLESS that liquid, physical blood changes to another form or state of being!  We see here that Jesus’ face was changed to be “white as LIGHT.”  Had He caused His blood to change to the form that it was in, IN THE BEGINNING?  Let’s think about this.                         

John 4:24, “God is a Spirit…”

A spirit has no blood. Or at least, what we know as blood. The only time that God had blood was when He manifested in the flesh, as the man Jesus.  But when finishing His work; His blood (the liquid stuff we know as blood) was poured out upon the earth; but when He resurrected, He walked through a wall in the Upper Room. His Blood had changed. How do we know this?  When Jesus was describing Himself to those in the Upper Room, He said:

Luke 24:39-40, “Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. (40 and when He had thus SPOKEN, he showed them his hands and feet.”  

Notice, He did not say flesh and blood. Because His blood had changed back to what it had been, as Father, a Spirit. It was LIGHT. And although they could “see” His body with the bones, that He had spoken to, they could not see His blood, because they were not elevated to that place in the Spirit, seeing as a Spirit being. And notice also, He did not show them His hands and feet UNTIL He had spoken. “When He had thus spoken, He showed them His hands and feet.”

This changing of the body will not only change our flesh, it will change our blood.

Father is piecing together, to me, an understanding of the changing of the blood, bit by bit.  One piece He as shown me is:  somewhere from just before Adam ate of the Tree of knowledge of Good and Evil, to when Adam was lowered into this flesh state of being, Adam’s blood changed.                                          

Gen 1:27, “So, God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he, him….”

God was/is a Spirit. A Spirit does not have blood as we know blood. So, neither did the man that God created, because the man was in the image of God.

Gen 2:7 “And the Lord God molded man of the dust….”

In Gen 1, man was a Spirit being without out blood as we know it, but, at the “fall” it required blood, as we know blood, to keep that flesh body alive. (but in a state of death).  Somewhere in the process of “the fall” Adam’s blood was changed, and now for another Re-Happening, our blood is once again being changed back to its original form.  (There will be more on this as I receive revelation and understanding. If Father reveals anything to you, on this, I would appreciate the sharing.)        

I thought that we would get through 1 Cor, in this study, but, Father took me in another direction. Below, are some definitions we will be looking at in the next part of this study.

PART SIX

OUR FOCUS

OUR THOUGHTS AND THE WORDS WE SPEAK

 
MT 27:50-53, “Jesus, when he had cried again, with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.”

We saw in the study of “Life On Both Sides of the River”, that there IS ministering going on, on “Both Sides of the River.” This has to be a truth. Because, not only will the Manifested Sons of God have to have (1) received revelation, (2) heard, (3) received understanding, (4) and BELIEVED, in order to call the dead back into glorified bodies; but, those on the other side, in the spirit realm, will have to have heard the calling back, because “they without us cannot be made complete.” (Heb 11:40)

You may say, “If many arose from their graves and walked in a resurrected state of being, why did they go on and see death again?” The answer is sure. It’s because they had not received the Holy Spirit, yet. They did not have what WE have today, the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. (1 Cor. 15: 22-28).

“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive but, every man in his own order: Christ the first- fruits;(this is those who know that they are actually God’s Life on earth, HIM living through them) afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father, when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.”

This is powerful !!! There are some things that we really have to see!!

  1.   There is an order, for His Coming forth in His people.

A.  First, it is in CHRIST, the firstfruits. Notice, “firstfruits” IS PLURAL. This is His many-membered Body parts. This is those who manifest, fully, His Christ in the earth.

B.   Second, after these manifest on the earth, then those which are Christ’s

  1. Third, THEN cometh the end. (that is, the world that hasn’t accepted Jesus as their Savior.)
  1.   “when he shall have delivered UP the Kingdom TO God”. See where the KINGDOM OF GOD has to come from? UP. This is up from within US. (Rom 14:10, Luke 17:21). And notice, the KINGDOM has manifested up from within, and then it has to be delivered up TO God. The Kingdom is delivered up to God, WHEN the Sons of God (a single Body) has put down (in the earth–their vessels, as well as the natural earth, ALL rule and ALL authority AND power. You see, He has given it to us, we just aren’t using it, as we should be.

3.  He must reign, (the Body of Christ), till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The feet represent our walk. (which includes our belief and rest in the certainty of Father’s Words.) And just as Jesus is our Pattern, we become a Pattern unto others. They become a part of our (the Body of Christ) feet. So after this manifests, (which it IS BEING FULFILLED NOW), these are a part of those that will make up the Manifested Sons of God.

4. The last enemy shall be destroyed is death. This is what Father is revealing to us now. There IS a people who ARE swallowing up death. Remember who this Word is about, THOSE WHO KNOW WHO THEY ARE, not the “ordinary” Christian).

5. “For he (Jesus, our Father God) HATH, HAS, PAST TENSE, put ALL things under His feet”. Feet = US, the Body of Christ, with HIM as the Head!! It’s already done!! This is IMPORTANT!!  WHEN IS IT DONE? “WHEN HE (US–His Christ Body) SAITH, SAITH, SAITH! “When he saith all things are put under, it IS MANIFEST THAT HE (OUR HEAD) is EXCEPTED, which DID put all things under Him (and His Body)!! Hallelujah!! Saith, means when we BELIEVE it!! To the point, that it manifests. Do you believe it? Or are you still waiting to see if it’s going to happen? Remember, Father wants us established in PRESENT TRUTH, not truths from the past.

  1. Then, “GOD WILL BE ALL IN ALL!!”

I had not planned to go into this, but this is how Father led so be it! Amen. Now, let’s get on with our study.

Those that arose from the graves were not filled with the Holy Ghost, because Jesus had not yet come to the Upper Room and provided that filling, yet. That remembering, that they were spirit beings, wasn’t really a belief in them, they may have known that they just arose from that state of being, of death, but I don’t think that they had the revelation that they had ALWAYS been a spirit being , in the image of God. You see, When Adam was created, in the image of God, I believe that he was created as a Spirit being, a “light being”. But, at the “fall”, which was part of God’s Plan, Adam was “hued down”. (Hu-manned) Human speaks of COLOR. Spirit speaks of “clear”. (being seen through, clearly. As clear as the “glass” we see the reflection of Father in, when we look in that glass at ourselves.) Hue is another word for color. Adam means, “red in the face”. Adam was “hued down” from clear to red, meaning a change in blood. He went from being a God being to being a hue man being. And now, it’s being reversed!! Hallelujah!! There are those who are returning to the simplicity of Jesus. We are leaving religion and are re-turning to our real state of being!! All glory to God!!

First Corinthians, chapter 15

This entire chapter is SO RICH in spiritual manna! If you stayed in it for a month allowing Father to give that 3rd realm understanding of the words, it would change your way of thinking. Honestly, it would. But, right now, we want to concentrate on the Changing that IS taking place

1 Cor 15:51, “BEHOLD….”

Anytime you see the word “Behold”, Father is about to reveal something that He has not revealed before.

“Behold, I show you a mystery…”

This word “mystery”, in the Greek #3466 in Strong’s means, to shut the mouth; a secret (through the idea of silence, imposed by initiation into religious rites. In Thayer’s Lexicon #3466, it means: (in class. Greek), a hidden thing, secret, generally mysteries, religious secrets, confided only to the initiated and not to be communicated by them (the initiated) to ordinary mortals. The secret purposes relative to the Kingdom of God; used of certain single events decreed by God having reference to His Kingdom, or the salvation of man.

So, the way I am seeing this is:

“Behold, what is going to be revealed in the following Words–Behold is a secret to those “initiated”, or ordained to this realm of understanding,– is the secret by the Holy Spirit, and it’s not, nor can be, communicated to “ordinary mortals,”, carnal Christians.” (because the carnal receiveth not the things of the Spirit. 1Cor 2:14.) And the Words are secret purposes relative to the Kingdom of God, used of single events decreed by God, having reference to His Kingdom.” Hallelujah!!

And what is this secret, decreed by God, used of certain single events.

“We shall not all sleep (die a physical death) but we shall all be changed.”

This “being changed” is decreed or ordained by God. Why people find this so hard to believe, when Father planned it, is sad! Now understand clearly, it is not the event that is to be desired, it’s the PERSON that will be seen in the event, FATHER!! Oh! Glory to His Name!!

VS52, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye….”

I gave definitions in the last part of this study, part 7. This word “moment” means, “ATOM”. Now, I want us to shut off the natural mind and think with the Mind of Christ. (1Cor 2:16). We know that in the spirit realm there is no time, only PRESENT.   Moment, in the natural thinking, denotes time. So, the Spirit is showing us that this word “moment” is speaking of something else. Consider this. What are each cell of each part of our bodies made up of? ATOMS!! (I’ve included, here, a short article that I got off of the internet, regarding atoms:

Quote: “How many atoms are in the human body? Would you settle for a whole bunch? I didn’t think so. The number of atoms in one person is almost too big to write out. But fortunately there’s a shorthand system, called scientific notation, that we use instead for writing really BIG or really SMALL numbers. Since huge numbers are generally just estimates anyway, we just use the first few numbers, followed by a code that tells you how many zeros would follow if you wrote it all out. Ok, here it goes.

Hydrogen   http://education.jlab.org/itselemental/ele001.html

oxygen http://education.jlab.org/itselemental/ele008.html

and carbon http://education.jlab.org/itselemental/ele006.html

make up about 99% of the average human. I’m going to cheat a little and leave out the other 1%, which is made up of trace elements (that is, stuff there’s only a trace of in the body). Then, let’s assume an average adult weighs 70 kilograms. Be sure to keep in mind that the following numbers are based on the number of atoms, not percent of body weight (by weight we are mostly oxygen). A 70 kg body would have approximately 7*1027 atoms. That is, 7 followed by 27 zeros:7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000Of that, 4.7*1027 would be :

hydrogen atoms, which have one proton http://education.jlab.org/glossary/proton.html

and one electron http://education.jlab.org/glossary/electron.html

each. Another 1.8*1027 would be oxygen, which has 8 protons, 8 neutrons and 8 electrons. There are 7.0*1026 carbon atoms, which have 6 protons, 6 neutrons and 6 electrons. Now, let’s add that all up: Protons Neutrons Electrons

Hydrogen 4.7*1027 0 4.7*1027

Oxygen 1.4*1027 1.4*1027 1.4*1027

Carbon 4.2*1026 4.2*1026 4.2*1026

Total 6.5*1027 1.8*1027 6.5*1027

Well, you’ll have to agree that really is a whole bunch.  Answer 2 As they say in French – “Beaucoup,” meaning a lot! A very technical, but very interesting, discussion of this can be found at

http://www.foresight.org/Nanomedicine/Ch03_1.html

In summary, for a typical human of 70 kg, there are almost 7*1027 atoms (that’s a 7 followed by 27 zeros!) Another way of saying this is “seven billion billion billion.” Of this, almost 2/3 is hydrogen

http://education.jlab.org/itselemental/ele001.html

1/4 is oxygen http://education.jlab.org/itselemental/ele008.html, and about 1/10 is carbon

http://education.jlab.org/itselemental/ele006.html.

These three atoms add up to 99% of the total! The web site gives a detailed list of the all the different kinds of atoms making up the human body (there’s even some uranium http://education.jlab.org/itselemental/ele092.html  in us!) More importantly, this site is an introduction to a very new area of medical research named Nanomedicine which can be defined as “the monitoring, repair, construction and control of human biological systems at the molecular level, using engineered nanodevices and nanostructures.” Anyone who has watched the Star Trek TV shows has certainly come across this idea in some of the “Borg” episodes.” end quote.

Matter, which our bodies are, is made up of 3 states of being: liquid, vapor, and solid. OH!! This is so good!! Prov 22:30, tells us that when Father reveals something to us, it’s in 3’s, if we take it before Him. That word “excellent” in Prov means =3 fold, or 3 realms!! Isn’t He just wonderful!!

“in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye…”

This word “twinkling” means, a jerking. (see definitions). So, in the atoms of our make up, our bodies, there is a jerking that must take place. The jerking of what? The eye. They eye is our sight organ. The “jerking” that IS taking place, is of an eye. We have learned that the word “of” in the Greek means= out from within. The “jerking must come out from within an eye. An is a preposition, showing a particular eye. What does Father tell us regarding the eye?

MT 6:22-23, The LIGHT of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of LIGHT. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the LIGHT that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness.

Now, we saw that in the natural flesh body, that blood was the life of it. What I am getting from this is that LIGHT represents understanding. Also, Jesus said, “I am the LIGHT of the world. Which we do believe. But, He also said, “YOU are the LIGHT OF THE WORLD”. Do we BELIEVE that? I don’t think that most do believe that. How can people believe that they are the LIGHT of the world, when they won’t even accept what the Word tells us about WHO we are. “It is Christ that lives, not I…” (Gal 2:20). Why do people put off into the future, what the Word clearly uses the present tense of much that tells us about ourselves? I know that for anything to be a LIVING REALITY to us, it must be out of the understanding of the Holy Spirit, but there’s a lot of people who even in the natural, do not want to accept, the wording alone, as being true. Then there are those who’s concern is with the POWER they will have, with GREATER works THEY will work, but they have forgotten, IT IS NOT THEM who will do this, IT IS FATHER!!! These are things that the natural eyes are focused on. This is a SINGLE EYE that is jerked. And what is it jerked from? From the natural, to the truths of Father. Jerked to see as He sees. The atoms of our body is changed as that single eye is jerked to the Spiritual, that tells us of TRUE REALITY, not this life that is now being made reality. (but it is temporal.) The darkness that is “great in thee” is NOT BELIEVING His Word!! For as a man thinketh in his heart, so IS he. ANYTHING contrary to Father’s Word is darkness. Take a truth, meditate on it, regardless of what is seen in the natural, and Father will honor that and will give the understanding of it to become a reality in us. Then that much more of the eye, or His LIGHT, that single eye, is jerked to stay on that truth. As this happens, after that “twinkling” or jerking of the eye then, in the moment, or in the atoms, His LIGHT causes a change in the body. This isn’t a step by step alternative to become perfected, this is the Word of God. If we learn , that to God, LIGHT and DARKNESS are the same, because BOTH come from Him and are used to FOR OUR CHANGING BODY.

Now, Luke, being a physician, adds a little more to what Matthew had to say.

Luke 11:34-36, “…..vs 35, Take heed therefore that the light, which is in thee be not darkness. (36) If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.”

It’s the same as in Matthew, except here it is made clear that the only way for wholeness of light, is that NO PART be dark. Again, this is seeing “all things are of God”, and if that be true, then how can we call something dark. The candle is the Holy Spirit causing His understanding to shine forth within us, and us giving Father the glory for ALL things. When we see no darkness, as we think of darkness or evil, then we have no darkness in us. Our eye, or the LIGHT within us is becoming SINGLE unto to Father. This brings back to my remembrance the “single event decreed by God.”

ECC. 1:8-11, “All things are full of labor; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, not the ear filled with hearing. The thing that has been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done; and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there anything whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. There is no remembrance of former things: neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.”

We changed BEFORE and can’t remember it, and we are changing BACK to the real us and won’t have remembrance of what we “fell” into believing about who we are. There is a Truth of Father that will take place not only in the natural earth, but in us as His earthen dwelling place:

“All the earth will be filled with My glory.”

Speak to your body. Allow the LIGHT to change the atoms within the body, both physical and corporate body. Meditate on the LIGHT of His Truths, and let it shine forth to every atom of our body. The changing of the body is already started. Accept what you will, reject what you will. But, there are those who know that this is happening now. Another re-happening. I learned something, that I already knew, but, just sort of  allowed it to slip my mind. You know, Father is so very good to us in His Teaching.  I don’t know about the rest of you, but, I need to slow down and just allow Him to be Him.  Sometimes, when doing a study, I will think, “Well, this must be all, because I can’t THINK of anything to add.”  Then, a week or two will pass and Father just nonchalantly, says, “Oh, Linda, here is more on what I was talking to you about.”  It’s then that I AM lifted into the realm that He is talking from, and I listen to Him.  It’s glorious, the way Father works with each of us.

I received an email from a brother, that taught me something. It taught me to THINK WITH FATHER’S MIND. Praise His Holy Name!!  I’m not sure if the email was sent by accident and was meant to go to someone else or what. I know I have done that; meant to send it to one person, but prematurely did not erase an address, and enter a different one, and hit send, and it was sent back to a person that I may have been reading an article they had sent.  The email went like this:

QUOTE:  “Linda Keith is the latest bright star from Sigler and I have a hard time trying to figure out just what all the hub bub is about with that gal.—Original Message—” UNQUOTE.

Now, at first, I was a little taken aback. (Because I have always respected and adored this brother and sort of looked to him, as having a father’s heart).  THEN, Father started showing me, that this brother was being used as a tool for Father’s teaching and work within ME!!  Father is so precious to us!!

The work that Father did in this situation was to tell me, LOOK AT THINGS THE WAY I SEE THINGS!  He was saying to me, “Take your focus off of YOU and see AS I SEE.”  You know, sometimes, when Father is doing a work within us, we sometimes get our little feelings hurt. Usually, it’s when we are seeing self, instead of seeking for HIM to show forth.  When that happens, that’s when we need to realize, that SELF is being disturbed, NOT the nature of Christ. The nature of Christ, NEVER gets disturbed by what someone says or does.  That’s the AWAKENING, that Father is doing in us.  That’s the CHANGING, that is happening!  And we must understand that as this HAPPENING takes place in our mind, OPERATING FROM THE MIND OF CHRIST, it is, also, a change taking place in our body.  Oh, the glorious MYSTERIES of God!!

I was talking, a little while back, with Bro Bill Madison.  We were just speaking about whatever the Spirit brought forth. Bro Madison brought John 1:29 to my attention. I have read this scripture a hundred times, and had not really received the depth of it.  He said, “Do you realize that this Word tells us, that if Jesus TOOK the sin of the world, no one after His Resurrection, was born in sin?”  WOW!!   How different is that from what we’ve been taught all these years. All the people that are going around saying, “I am a sinner, saved by grace.” Incredible!!!

Then, in the last few days, I was reading a book by Floyd Watson, “The Mystery of Godliness”.  When, what do I run across?  These following words:

QUOTE:  “The key is, not sowing thoughts in our heavens that are contrary to the heart of our Father.  Is our heart towards all men, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”  Is there accusation and criticism, OR, forgiveness “seven times seventy?”  This is how we attune our hearts to our Father’s, for we wipe out our human concepts of folks and begin to see them as the very image and likeness of God. No longer using human reasoning or judgment, but recognizing that God made ALL in His likeness and image and looked on us and saw good.  I like what my friend said, “When we understand all that happened at the cross and how sin was dealt with once and for all, then, a sinner has not been born for 2,000 years, just incarnations of God.”  We are hearing, Awake, Arise, Shake off the dust of 6000 years of human understanding.”  UNQUOTE.

You may ask, “What does this have to do with the Changing of the body?”  It’s what changes in the mind that will bring forth the Changing of the Body.  The thinking from the Christ Mind is what changes the body.

The medical field has shown that emotions such as; anger, bitterness, hatred, belittling of others, UNFORGIVENESS, etc. has a direct link with diseases.  Ask your physicians. Thoughts and Words!!  Keep in mind that Jesus SPOKE to His Bones.  That’s a breathtaking thought!  Life and death are in the power of Words.  

So , I think what Father is showing us, is that whatever and whoever comes our way, we must SEE them as He sees them. HE wants us to see with the LIGHT of the BLOOD that is truly our LIFE.  You see, Father isn’t aware of COLOR. Whether it be a person’s skin, or the blood. What He sees is HIMSELF, when He looks at a person. When WE see as He does, we see ALL things and people, who WE may have thought, as, “coming against us”, as TOOLS OF GOD!!  How can there be UNFORGIVENESS when we SEE HIM, in a person or thing?  Oh, He’s so good to us!!  To me, this brings MORE of the manifestation OF HIS LOVE, for that thing or person, actively alive in us. They are our very God’s TOOL, bringing Him forth IN US!!  Hallelujah!!

This manifesting of Father’s love through us, has an impact on these flesh bodies.   When we hold “thoughts” within us, they bring forth “words”.  Words bring forth “action”, and “action” brings forth CHANGE. (for either LIFE or DEATH). When we think of Father’s creating, we can see a Pattern:

Thought:  Father’s plan and purposes

Word:  The Word spoke those purposes and plan.

Action:  The Spirit brought the Word of His Thought into being.

Change: Spirit beings became Spirit beings in a flesh body.

How is the curse, reversed?

Thought: Our thoughts from the Mind of Christ returning us to our beginning.

Word: WE are living epistles. We are to SPEAK and BE HIS WORDS.

Action: Father speaking forth though us.

Change:  Change from mortal to immortal. ONLY Father being seen.

Doesn’t He tell us, “Call things that are not as though they are?  Jesus, our Pattern did just this. Because Jesus SAW with the Spirit, not the natural, He SPOKE in His very SPIRIT Being, Father’s Words, and CHANGED situations. In ALL people, in EVERYTHING, He saw Father and called forth Father’s DESIRE!!  Once we see, we learn, once we learn we do. I thank Father for the “little hurt feelings”!!  He opened my eyes to see HIM in this. Now, you know what I see?  Father is bringing forth “Bright Stars”, from within His Body of Christ, to show forth HIM!! I will certainly give a lot more attention to HIM, when “little hurt feelings” TRY to pop up, for it is HIM teaching and it is HIS teaching that will cause the Change in the Body. (Not only physically, but corporately.)  Hallelujah!!  As we SEE who and what we truly ARE, the Change will/IS manifesting. THOUGHTS AND WORDS BRING CHANGE IN ALL THINGS, including our bodies.   Praise His Name.

Be blessed
