MYSTERY of the WOMAN

BY: DES WALTER

NOVEMBER 2012

The woman mentioned in Genesis 2:22-23 is relevant in understanding the overall mystery of God: the more you comprehend the truth about the woman, the closer you come to knowing more about God.

God never created a woman; yet there are millions of women living on the earth today! It seems we take their existence as part of humanity for granted. In many countries, women are oppressed, abused, neglected and considered inferior to men. In many third world countries, women are viewed as slaves to men. Even in Christian nations, women are treated as second class citizens.

Universally, the church devalues the worth of a woman, demanding that she be obedient and submissive to her husband. Most churches practice gender bias by excluding women from the priesthood or from being a pastor, from reading the Bible or even speaking at church. There is some recent change in this area though. Concerning women speaking in church, when the apostle Paul is speaking of the “woman”, he is referring to the living soul in most cases. The living soul includes males and females for we have all become the woman. Paul says in 1 Timothy 2:12, “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”

His prohibition is directed against the living soul which functions under the power of the carnal mind. Such a person, be it a man or woman, cannot know the truth; so Paul denies them the right to teach.

In Genesis 1:28 God commanded the man He had just created, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.”

God created only one man, and so if God intended the earth to be filled with people, it was essential that the man could reproduce out of himself. We will discuss the whole question of reproduction a little later, but sufficient for now is the fact that the man was endued with the power to bring forth a manifestation of himself. Indeed, we read in Genesis 2:7 that this first man did what God told him to do. The Lord God – the man created in Genesis 1:28 – formed a body out of the dust of the earth because He knew that according to the will and purposes of God, this man would need a body through which to function in the earth. If he remained only spirit, he would be invisible to the natural eye. When the body was complete, it had no life. So the Lord God breathed the same life He had received from the Father in creation, into the nostrils of the man, and man became a “living, air breathing, NEPHESH (Soul). This term is also used in Genesis 1:21, “And God created great whales, and every living creature (NEPHESH) that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”

Please recall that the first man who was created in Genesis 1:26 is the Lord Christ Jesus. In Genesis chapter 2, He is identified as the Lord God or Jehovah Elohim. This is actually man with God indwelling him, which is exactly what mankind is today! In reality, God and the man have never been separated, and never can be separated, for the Christ in every man is the life force that sustains us. But because we do not understand the source of our life, which is the eternal spirit that dwells with us, our body deteriorates with age and eventually ends in death.

Religion has confused the whole concept of death, having not understood that the spirit in every man at the point of death leaves the body, for it is eternal and cannot die, and simply returns back to God from Whom it came. What is left is the body which returns back to the dust. You may ask, “Where is the person now that was living in that body?” And the answer is, they have joined the myriad host who are praising and worshipping God! While a prisoner on the isle of Patmos the apostle John caught a glimpse of this great host of people.

And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the ‘Lamb’ that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.” And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, “Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever.” (Revelation 5:11)

“For you are not come unto the mountain that might be touched with our natural senses, or that burned with fire, nor unto literal darkness, or to the killing of a sacrifice as in Israel‘s day, But ye are come unto mount Zion, and unto the City of the Living God, the Heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and Church of the firstborn (the offspring of God) which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of (just) men made perfect.” (Hebrews 12:18)

Back to the woman. Genesis 2:18 declares, “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an (help) “meet” for him [which in the Hebrew reads, as before him].

It seems strange that Adam needed a “help-meet”, being the offspring of Christ Jesus. The Hebrew word for “help-meet” is EZER, meaning help, or succour, or one who helps. But it is obvious that God had a purpose in this addition that was being made available to him. in some way this help-meet for Adam was to fulfill a specific role in the purposes of God, being a test of his love relationship with God. We have no idea how many years Adam walked and talked with God in a love relationship of perfect harmony. But the love of Adam for God had never been tested, as there was nothing and no one to challenge his love.

The purpose of this help-meet was to become in some way a test for Adam. In Genesis 2:21 we are told that the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam who was not consulted about what was planned for him. We are told that while he ‘slept’ the Lord God took a “rib” out of Adam and closed up the flesh. However the word “Rib” is the translation of a Hebrew word TSELA {TSA-·LÄ} which means, “side, rib, side chambers or cells (of temple structure, plank, board (of cedar or fir), or leaves (of door). We know now that what this “rib” referred to is the female aspect of the spirit that is man, that we now call woman. We may wonder why God did this, but if we follow this through we will see the amazing wisdom of God revealed.

In Genesis 2:22 we are told that the Lord God introduced the woman to Adam. Adam is recorded as saying to the woman, “This is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh, so she shall be called woman (ISHSHAW) for she was taken out of the man (EESH).”

I am convinced that Adam was still asleep when he made that statement, for if he had been awake and in his right mind, he would have said to this creature, “Who are you and where did you come from, because I know that God did not create you?” But instead, Adam lowered himself to become the same as the woman with the same bones and the same flesh, which was not true of Adam until he declared it to be so. It is important to know that the woman was never created; she was part of the Spirit in Adam. She just needed her body to be formed by the Lord God for her to become a help-meet for Adam. In the perfect will and purposes of God, Adam no longer believes that he is a man that is spirit, which is male and female functioning together as one. But he is convinced that the female part of his spirit being is now walking independently outside of him, instead of being united in perfect union as spirit, male and female functioning together as one.

Consider Proverbs 23:7 in the context of our discussion. “For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, says he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.”

Adam really believed that the female part of his spirit being had been removed while he was under the deep sleep, and when he saw that person, he assumed that she was that female part of his spirit being. All men even today believe the same thing, for the scripture records, “For this cause shall a man leave his father and his mother and cleave unto his wife and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked and they were not ashamed.”

Remember that the man was created spirit in Genesis 1:26. This man was Christ – and Christ is spirit – created in the likeness and the image of God, and so Christ’s spirit was male and female functioning together as one. It is impossible to divide the spirit and to separate the male and the female from each other. Otherwise, God who is spirit could be divided. We know that this is impossible because we would have a male God and a female God. God is spirit which is male and female, and is also our Father who begat all of mankind. The Apostle James tells us concerning God, “Of His own will begat he us, that we should be a kind of first-fruits of the God kind of people.” (James 1:18)

In other words, all of mankind was created in Christ Jesus who is the Firstfruit, and the Seed of God, which constitutes all of mankind as the offspring of God (Acts 17:28).

Genesis 1:27 states, “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He (them) him”.

Now we can remove the confusion concocted by the carnal mind. God created the man spirit, in the image and likeness of God having at that time no body. This spirit that is man consisted of two parts: a male part and a female part, which were joined and designed to function together as one. So when we are told that the first man who was Christ Jesus was male and female functioning together as one, it was referring to the spirit aspect of the man. “God created man in His image”; the term man does not refer to a male species with a male physical body; the image this man was created after is spirit. And spirit is not gender specific; it is gender inclusive of both male and female.

Why do the male and female aspects of the spirit function as one? They do because the spirit created in Genesis 1:27 is in the image and after the likeness of God, and God begot all of humanity out of Himself. We can ignore the evolutionists who suggest that man began life as a one cell organism in a primordial swamp that managed to sprout arms and legs until he developed a full body through evolution millions of years later. To believe evolution we would have to ignore the Bible and the revelation that the only source of life on this earth is God. No scientist has ever been able to produce life in a test tube, and never will. God the creator of all things is the only source of life and He dwells in all of mankind.

“God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that He is Lord of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made with hands; neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, seeing He gives to all life, and breath, and all things; and has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; that they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after Him, and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us. For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also His offspring.” (Acts 17:24-28)

God and man are linked together; and if God ever left us, we would be dead, because He is the source of all life. James 1:18 tells us that we have all been begotten of God, “of His own will”. This means that God was able to procreate out of Himself, without the need of any help from anyone else. Likewise, man was also designed to be able to do the same, a truth that we have never understood. Part of the ignorance stems from not understanding the mystery of the woman. In all the years of my ministry and study of the word, I had never even given a thought to the fact that we were created as spirit in the beginning and that spirit is male and female functioning together as one.

But God begot all of mankind in that first man Christ Jesus, who is God’s only Son. He was told in Genesis 1:28, “To be fruitful and multiply and to fill the earth.” He was spirit, which is male and female, and had no physical body but He was created in the likeness and the image of God, so he could reproduce out of Himself. He was obedient and did what His Father told Him. We read how the first Earth Man was brought into being in Genesis 2:7.

Remember that the first man was Christ, and He was spirit in the likeness and the image of God, but now God required Him to bring forth a manifestation of Himself that would also be a Son of God. However being Christ, He knew that the first earth man would need a body to fulfill the purposes of God on the earth. He saw from the Spirit’s vision of the future that man would not continue to live in the realm of spirit but would be lowered into another realm where the body would be necessary.

So He began to form a body from the dust of the earth, being guided by the Spirit, so this man would have a real connection to the earth. When that body was finished, it could not move as it had no life in itself, so the Lord God breathed into the nostrils of the man the same breath of life that He had received from God in the beginning. Remember the word breath, wind and spirit (PNEUMA in Greek and RUWACH in Hebrew) have the same meaning. The man became a living soul some time later along the pathway of Life. Now understand that this man was also Christ, but he had a body, and he was called Adam.

Most Christians are confused about the meaning of the term soul; many wrongly believe that the soul is part of the spirit. However, the spirit is Christ who is God and not just a part of God. Spirit cannot be divided, for God is Spirit and cannot be divided. We are told in Genesis 1:27 that spirit is male and female functioning together as one. So if you could divide spirit, you could separate the male from the female, but you cannot. Nowhere does the Bible mention a male spirit or a female spirit as separate issues. Also, spirit has no gender, but the male and the female aspect of the spirit are united and only function together as one in absolute oneness and unity.

To clarify our understanding of the woman, we need to understand that in the old English language the woman was actually called the “womb man,” or the “man with the womb.” This of course was shortened from the womb-man to the woman. Now let us continue on with these thoughts – when God looks at a man what does he actually see?’ He sees Christ, for that is where we came from, out of Christ. (Ephesians 2:10) “Created in Christ Jesus.” But if God is looking at a woman, what does He see? He sees Christ also. He sees the spirit – Christ – whom He created, Christ being the only Son / offspring of the living God.

How do we account for the birth of the billions of people who inhabit the earth? When God created that first man who was Christ Jesus, He included in Him all of mankind. This is so because all mankind must be the product of the same seed, who was Christ. Hence, all of mankind are the children of God. Do you realize what this means? Every one born on this earth carries the same seed, which is the seed of God who is Christ (Galatians 3:16). Why then are there so many people who have no time for God and do not honor Him in their life? Because reproduction is no longer a spiritual function as it was for that first man Christ Jesus in Genesis 2:7.

Man now believes that he can only reproduce with the help of the woman that God never created. Instead of Christ being the seed of new life, reproduction now depends on the seed of man fertilizing the egg in the womb of a woman (see Psalm 139:14-16). But that is not the end of God’s involvement in the birthing process. The life of the fetus comes neither from the father nor from the mother. Before birth, our Heavenly Father assembles the parts of the body until that body is complete. Then He drops the spirit which is Christ into that little body which is the Seed of Life in that little one. The difference between that child and the birthing of the first earth man Adam in Genesis 2:7 is that the first process was accomplished by the Spirit of God. Today, reproduction by egg and sperm yields an offspring who will be raised as a mortal human being.

God created man as spirit in Genesis 1:26 and this spirit is in every man beginning with Adam till this present day. This spirit in every man is Christ who is God, so this means that God has a direct line of contact with every man on this planet.

But the majority of mankind never respond to the frequency of His divine voice, even though Father will hear the softest cry of the human heart, and will respond accordingly. If it were God’s will that every man walk with God in perfect obedience, this would have happened long ago. But it did not, because mankind would become robots void of individual choice and will. Man was given a will, and God will never overrule man’s will. God is love and there can never be any force in a love relationship. That is why to make God responsible for a burning hell for those who fail to respond to Him completely destroys the love character of God.

“For God so loved the world.” (John 3:16)

From man’s point of view, he is free to do whatever he chooses to do. God has carefully hidden His sovereignty and the fact that He is Lord Over All, so that man becomes responsible for all of his actions, having chosen his pathway in life without coercion. Please read the following scriptures carefully.

The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. (Psalm 24:1)

For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in the earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him. (Colossians 1:16)

And, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself: by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.” (Colossians 1:20)

But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth, and some to honor, and some to dishonor.” (2 Timothy 2:20)

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in the earth, and things under the earth. (Philippians 2:10)

And, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.” (Colossians 1:20)

These scriptures must become the foundation for a greater understanding of truth.

1. The earth and all who dwell upon it belong to the Lord.

2. God created everything in the invisible realm of spirit and in th natural physical realm.

3. God has reconciled all things unto himself, including principalities and powers and authorities set up   by man, through the Cross. There is nothing that has not been reconciled unto God

4. Some vessels are of gold or silver, but some are of wood or earthly; some are unto honour and some to dishonour; however, all have been reconciled unto God, both the ones unto honour and those unto dishonour.

5. God has determined that ultimately every knee shall bow to the name of Jesus.

6. God has established the basis for peace with everything he made, through the “Blood of the Cross” by which he delivered us from our mortality, by pouring out every drop of his blood, in which the mortal aspect of our life is found, (Lev 17:11) making it possible to restore to us the life without blood He gave us in creation which is eternal and not subject to death.

I do not believe that any one of us has truly understood the sovereignty of God and how it functions on earth. If God is not sovereign on this earth, then He has completely failed in His will and purpose for creation. The church and religion have filled our minds with their corrupted concept of sin and divine judgments, fabricating a concept of “hell” full of unlimited horrors in an effort to make man afraid of God until the wicked turn around and obey God.

This strategy has failed miserably. The imagery of people being burned forever generated the opposite effect, making the whole concept of God irrational and unreal. God so loved the world, that He gave us His Son, to suffer and die on the cross, to bear our sin, or “missing the mark” and to set mankind free from the bondage of the consequences of our failures if we seek Him. God still declares His ownership of all mankind, and has reconciled everyone unto Himself.

Jesus tells us plainly in John 14:12, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”

Why is it that the great majority of Christians have never done any of the things Jesus did in healing of the sick, or setting people free who were in bondage? Do not all Christians, “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ?” Then why are we not able to do the things that He did? But if the spirit of our true identity is not complete in us – male and female – then we will never be able to function as a true spiritual being, in any capacity in which Christ functioned. For the spirit is male and female functioning together as one.

“But if that same spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his spirit that dwells in you.” Rom 8:11

It is obvious that Adam together with all of mankind have believed that the female part of the spirit in him was removed while he was under the deep sleep. However, it is absolutely impossible to divide spirit. Spirit, like God Himself, is indivisible. If this is true, and it is, then the female part of the spirit in Adam could never have been removed from him. But in Genesis 2:23 Adam said to the woman who had just appeared, You are bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh, she shall be called ‘woman’ for she was taken out of the man.” Therefore [because of this], shall a man leave his father and mother and shall cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh.”

It is obvious that Adam was still under the influence of the ‘deep sleep’ and no longer spiritually awake. So marriage is man’s best attempt to rectify the problem, caused by man believing that the Lord has removed the female aspect of the spirit, and that she is now walking on the earth outside the man as a separate entity.

This has affected all of mankind, both Christian and heathen, who now feel the need for a wife. So the man finds a woman that appeals to him, and they get married by forming a union based on love. Marriage is man’s attempt to replace the need he feels for a woman in his life, but he cannot place that woman back where she belongs – that is within him – so she remains a separate entity.

There is no woman on this earth that can fulfill the role of the “female part of the spirit,” that is in man, with the ability to procreate out of himself, as Father intended man to be able to do. God said to that First Man in Genesis 1:28 to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth, and he intended that every man would be obedient and fill the earth with the offspring of God. But mankind has failed;, instead, he has reproduced children who can potentially indulge in every imaginable vice, addicted to drugs or alcohol, disobedient to their parents, with no interest in the God who loves them and gave His Life for them on the cross at Calvary. So marriage has not rectified the problem, but has simply created yet another one.

The first man was Christ Jesus, and He reproduced Himself in the man Adam, who was also Christ, who in turn was required to reproduce himself and so on, until the earth is full of the offspring of God. But instead, Adam used the woman to reproduce, using the seed of man instead of the Seed of God which is Christ (Galatians 3:16).

The result is that Adam’s first son was a murderer and killed his brother. This was not what God intended, for we have filled the earth with people, the majority of whom live their lives doing their own will and ignoring God. The man no longer needs God, so to establish a relationship with God is unnecessary, and man’s love that should be for God is now directed toward other things.

Most Christians believe that they fulfill their duty towards God by going to church, by tithing and by reading the Bible. What we truly need instead, is receiving God’s revelation for our individual lives and for His purposes for us in the earth. This will establish the Kingdom of God in the hearts of his people. Most Christians know very little about our true responsibility towards God. The church today has redirected the attention of God’s people to itself, rather than presenting Christ as Lord and Master having total control over us His people.

In many cases, people are being made subject to pastors, preachers and Bible teachers and the organizations they control. Obedience that is required by God is now directed to others while they believe that being faithful to the organizational ‘church’ is obedience to Christ. I am not saying that we should ignore the real church which is an organism and not an organization. I am convinced that this is part of the reason why Christianity has failed to affect society, which is becoming more decadent as the years roll by. Generally speaking, the church has developed more as a social club which people join, separating them from the rest of humanity. The truth is that nowhere in the Bible do we read about joining the church.

And the LORD added to the Church daily such as should be saved. (Acts 2:47)

Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours. (1 Corinthians 1:2)

UNDERSTANDING THE WOMAN

When Adam was introduced to the woman by the Lord God after his deep sleep, he aligned himself with her, showing that he had changed his consciousness of himself. It is interesting to note that after his declaration concerning his oneness with the woman, that she never spoke to Adam or had anything to do with him. Instead she was attracted to the serpent who began to deceive her concerning the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Eve understood the warning concerning eating this fruit, because she was the female aspect of the spirit in Adam. However, the serpent’s overwhelming deception made her believe that she would not die if she ate the fruit. Eve ate of this forbidden fruit and then took it to Adam for him to eat as her eyes had been opened to see another world.

Adam likewise ate the fruit with her, but not in disobedience or rebellion as religion would tell you. He ate the fruit because being Christ he knew that if he did not eat the fruit with her and remain one with her, there would be no redemption for all mankind. Keep in mind that Adam was Christ, and so he was prepared to pay the price for all mankind if he ate that fruit. To become one with the woman united Adam with all mankind taking humanity to the Cross with him.

The death of Adam nine hundred and thirty years later on the earth was not the death that God had spoken about. The death God referred to was the break in Adam’s love relationship with God. But even for this, He was willing to go to the cross to save humanity, which was the real price that He had to pay. To make this clear, Paul tells us in 1 Cor 15:45, And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

Here are the two Adams, the alpha or the beginning, and the omega the last, or final member of all mankind. The first man Christ Jesus was brought forth out of God in Genesis 1:26, so He was the Offspring of God and therefore the Son of God. That same first man was told in Genesis 1:28, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.” Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:10 that all of mankind was created in Him, that is in Christ. So the birthing of the Christ by that first man Christ Jesus was very important. Remember that God made everything to bring forth according to what God intended them to be. So for the first man, all he could bring forth was Christ because that was who He was. Now He is told to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. To do this, He must bring forth Christ for this is who He is.

Because He was Christ He knew that the will and the purposes of God for all mankind were to bring forth an offspring of Himself – “Christ.” He begins by forming a body from the dust of the earth, so this would be the first earth man; He gives this earth man a body because he knew what the Father had planned. But when the body was complete, it was lifeless so the second part of bringing forth a manifestation of Himself was to transmit the “life” he had received from His Father God in Genesis 1:26.

He breathed into the nostrils of that body the same life which he had received, and the body began to live. Remember that breath and wind and spirit are the same in Greek and in Hebrew. This first earth man is Adam who is also Christ, as he is the offspring of Christ who is the offspring of God. We need to understand that so far these reproductions are spiritual and were not dependent upon a body at all. Adam is the first earth man and the head of a race of people who would fill the earth. However, God has stated that the earth is to be filled with His offspring, and not the offspring of the woman.

We need to understand that there is only one Christ. The first one was the offspring of God in Genesis 1:26 that was Christ Jesus in whom was all the past, present and future generations of mankind. The first man “birthed” on this earth was Adam who was brought forth out of that first man Christ Jesus, so He was Christ also but now He has a body. So if the first man was Christ Jesus and the first earth man Adam was also Christ, and Paul tells us that the last Adam was made a life giving spirit, surely all of those in between must also be Christ.

But here is our problem: outside the Garden of Eden, Adam brought forth offspring by biological reproduction with the woman. His first offspring was a murderer who killed his brother. So reproduction with the woman has failed to produce what God had planned to fill the earth. Reproduction according to God’s plan was to be a spiritual process, and not a human experience.

Remember it was the Lord God who put Adam under a deep sleep from which mankind has not yet awakened. Man still believes that the female was taken out of him and that the woman walking around on the earth today was created by God for the man. We must grasp the truth that every one of us was created spirit and that spirit is male and female functioning together as one. But under the deep sleep that still continues to affect the consciousness of all mankind, our true spirituality fails to register with us. The fact that this situation has now continued from Adam right up till this day means that our relationship with God has been a “hit or miss” for most people.

How many of God’s people walk daily with Him in holy communion, listening to His voice and being obedient to what He is saying? Listening to God’s voice was a daily experience for Adam. Most Christians today rarely get close enough to the Father to hear His voice. They read the Bible instead. If the woman was designed to be a “test” of our love relationship with God, then we would have to agree that she has won the love test by a long shot.

After marriage, the first thing a man and his wife desire is to bring forth a child. In most cases, the act of planting the seed becomes the most important part of wanting their own children. But spiritual reproduction of the Christ, which is what God desired of us when He commanded that we be fruitful and multiply and to fill the earth with the “offspring of God,” is not even discussed. If we devote to God a fraction of the time we spend with our wife, in sweet fellowship and love with Christ who indwells, us we could change the world.

The question is, what am I to do with the woman I married 60 years ago which God never created. Do I divorce her and apologize to her for my misunderstanding in marrying her in the first place? This was my dilemma, and I really had no idea what I should do. So I asked the Father for the answer. He told me to simply put her back where she belonged in me as part of the spirit of my true being. I asked the Father, “How can I do this?” He said, “You must discover her true spiritual identity, and then treat her accordingly from now on.”

So going back on what the Father had already revealed, I knew that the female was a part of the spirit, and could not be separated from the male. I assumed that I was the male part of the Spirit, and that the woman therefore had to be joined to me spiritually. But I had not really understood that first of all, we all had become the woman – both the male and the female – so we had both become the living soul. The Father gave me understanding that Adam believed that he was one with the woman who was never created. But if he believed he was now one with the woman, in reality he could not be one with God.

The result was that Adam could no longer procreate out of himself, but he needed the woman – who had the womb to assist him. From that time, everyone both male and female have been born of a woman. This includes everyone on the earth; we have all become living souls, having become the woman. The living soul is a person whose body is under the control of the carnal mind, which is now an enemy of God.

Therefore, the living soul can never really know God, and neither is it subject to the will of God. Because of the carnal mind that has changed our consciousness, all of mankind today believe the female part of the Spirit in us was removed and is now the woman walking beside us. But this of course is a fallacy. We can only be restored to our original condition as we listen to the voice of the Father who dwells in us.

It is God’s will and purpose that we all birth the Christ and so fill the earth with the “off-spring of God.” Paul spells out the process of correction very clearly for us in Acts 17:26-28 (My translation), That we should seek the Lord, to discover that He is already living in us, if by doing so we might touch, handle, and know for certain, that we have found Him, because He is Christ the Spirit, which is our true identity. For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, for we are also His offspring.”

This means that we have discovered that Christ is our identity which is Spirit that is male and female functioning together as one. So the lie has been broken to see that the woman was never removed from the man, except in our altered consciousness. The truth is that the woman is simply the man with the “womb,” who can never bring forth the Christ as Father has purposed for all of mankind to do.

The concept that the male and the female were two separate creatures has for all those years robbed us of our spiritual consciousness, in which we can bring forth the Christ, and then fulfill the ministry of Jesus to heal the sick, make the lame to walk, and raise the dead, and control all of nature. These things we have only been able to dream about and believe that maybe one day we may be able to do those things. What a transformation this will bring to the earth.

The birthing of the Christ in us is not to produce a literal baby as the Virgin Mary did, for that only needed to be done once, so we could look upon the Christ who walked the streets of Jerusalem, as a man who had been born of a woman just the same as all mankind. As we have been reminded many times that our identity is Christ, having been created in Christ Jesus in creation, but we had not been able to provide any proof of our true identity. In the birthing of the Christ within us,

He can now manifest Himself through our Body, which is His Body, and His Holy Temple. This means that “It is no longer I that lives but it is Christ that lives in me, and the life that I now live, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” When this becomes our reality, this body will no longer be my body which cannot do what Jesus did while he was on the earth, for I am the motivator of this body. But if this body is in reality His Body as we birth the Christ He already has a body then the life force functioning through this (His) Body is no longer the “ I” of my human identity, but Christ living in me.

This voice is then the voice if the Christ and these hands are no longer mortal, but the hands of the Christ that caused the storm to stop. Those hands can heal the sick and make the blind to see and destroy cancer just as Jesus did 2000 years ago. The sick will no longer go to the hospital where people die; instead, the sick will look for a Christian to be healed. Doctors will go out of business and hospitals will shut down. As Christ becomes visible in the lives of His people, society will change and crime will cease as Christians unlock the minds of people who have been tormented by a false consciousness. As crime ceases, the police force will hardly be necessary and courts will have very little to do. The Apostle Peter tells us of this wonderful change that has been planned for God’s people that we speak about, but never did it become reality for us. In 1 Peter 2:5-9, the Apostle Peter declares:

Ye also, as living stones, are built up a spiritual house for Christ to dwell in, an Holy Priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Unto you therefore which believe He is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

Christians have not realized that the nation of Israel was throughout its history controlled by the priesthood. Israel did not have a police force because the priests were responsible for the law to function in Israel. When this truth becomes the reality of God’s people it will be the Melchisedek Priesthood that will rule the nations with Christ in charge as the Great High Priest. The Apostle Paul tells us in Romans 12:1-2, I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your spiritual worship, and be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

It is necessary for a woman who desires to conceive and birth a child to be willing to dedicate her body to the process for nine months. However, the apostle Paul reminds us that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and Christ is the High Priest in that temple, because the temple belongs to Christ. He has determined that our Body (which is His Body) should birth the Christ, which would cause this body (His Body) to be elevated and glorified beyond anything that we could achieve in this world. With Christ in charge of this body, no sickness will be able to touch it, nor will we die or get old and slowly fade away.

Most Christians are very familiar with the scriptures I have quoted here, but it is the reality they represent that has never been considered. Therefore the Christian life for most has stagnated, and we have never become what the Father has intended for us to be: a literal walking expression of the Christ of our true identity. That such a thing could become possible has never dawned upon us, considering the experience is beyond the limitation of our human mind.

In writing this study, I am not doing so from a position of having now heard the Father’s voice on these things but with a very humble heart, as these thoughts have come to me from the Father, for no man could teach me these things, but I assure you I will never be the same person I was before. We need to remove our shoes, as in discussing these things we surely are standing on holy ground. You may ask the question, “Did the Apostle Paul understand these things, and if so what did he say about them?” In speaking to the Church in Galatians this is what he said: My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you. (Galatians 4:19)

Paul refers to the Christians in the Church in Galatia as “my little children.” Could he be speaking about birthing a people into the Church which is Christ’s body? He also speaks about the Church of the Firstborn, which means that all the members are identical to Christ Jesus who was the original First-born Son of God, and also the Seed of God (Galatians 3:16).

The Church today has written its own concept of who a Christian is, as being someone who gives their heart to Jesus and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ, that he died for their sins on the cross, so they can be forgiven and go to heaven after they die. Paul even speaks about the birthing pain that sometimes goes on for quite a time in natural childbirth, until the fetus emerges in its completeness. It is no wonder that so many of us who claim to know Christ and are “saved” according to the church’s present day concept could never be mistaken for the Christ who walked the streets of Jerusalem 2000 years ago.

How many sick people go to a Christian to be healed today? Instead, they go to the hospital where most people die. Five thousand people followed Jesus out into the desert to hear what God had to say. A woman followed Jesus in the crowd saying in her heart, “After twelve years of pain, all I need to do is touch the hem of His garment and I know I will be healed.” And she was healed. How different would this world would be if there was one man today in whom was birthed the Christ; if there was a hundred such people, there would be a revolution.

THE BIRTHING PROCESS

What would birthing of the Christ in us individually accomplish? First of all, there must be a union established between us and the Christ because in our consciousness we were removed as the woman, from within the man according to Adam in Genesis 2:22. Remember that Adam was Christ, so this had an enormous effect on all of mankind. We all must confess that not only did Adam believe that the woman was taken out of him, but this has been the consciousness of all mankind ever since.

Our acceptance of the woman on the earth knowing that God never created a woman, declares the shift in our consciousness, which has affected all of humanity. But what has affected us the most is not just the woman on the earth, but the fact that we have all become the woman in our separation from the Christ of our true identity. The Christ dwelling in us today has a limited function, as we all believe that a part of the Christ Spirit has been separated from us and now functions apart from us. However, I now understand that the correction required is for our spiritual consciousness to be aligned with the Spirit.

The day I looked at my wife sitting on a chair near me, I began to ask the Father, “What should I do with her if she was actually taken out of me?” He reminded me that the woman was never taken out of the man; that is an impossibility for the Spirit which is Christ is male and female functioning together as one. This is the union that God has joined together and not our own selection of whom we decided to marry. Therefore, “What God has joined together, let no man seek to separate,” even in our consciousness, for it is not possible.

But that did not answer my question about what to do with the woman who is my wife. I could not put her back, as the woman is still there as part of the Spirit which is Christ. Father said to me, “The woman sitting there with you is a manifestation of the woman within you, and she belongs to me the Christ in you. So now you must honour her as the woman within you because, you the man, and the woman inside you and the woman sitting on the chair are now one.”

The Apostle Paul had received revelation of this, so he wrote in 1 Corinthians 6:17, “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit with Him.”

No one had ever told me that the “woman” – my wife – and I and Christ were one Spirit and that Spirit is Christ. If this was understood by God’s people today, there would never have been a divorce amongst them. In fact, you cannot separate what God has joined together. But we applied that to our marriage where we decided who we should marry, and hoped it was God’s choice also.

There is a day coming when this will be so, and the doctors will be out of business, and the hospitals will be empty. The Apostle John saw this day; but before this day manifests, there will be a consummation of the ages. This world will not finish until Jesus Christ is Lord in every heart, and every knee has bowed and every tongue has confessed that Jesus Christ is the Lord. Here is what John saw of that wonderful day:

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And He that sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And He said unto me, “It is done. I am the alpha [or the beginning of man’s existence] and I am also the Omega [the final expression of His eternal form on the earth]. (Revelation 21:1-6)

The new heavens and the new earth refer to the man, where the heavens represent the spiritual aspect of the man which has now been renewed, and the new earth speaks of the body made from the dust of the earth. Dust however came from Spirit. But the Christ on the throne in man has now made all things new, and the High Priest Christ Jesus is now in charge of his Holy Temple which is man.

So the heavens are no longer the sun, moon and the stars, but the Light of the World illuminating and revealing the true nature of everything, and the darkness is no more. The dust of the earth is no more but now shines forth in its pristine glory as it came from the Father in the beginning. The man is in the image and the likeness of God in creation and appears crowned with glory and honour, clothed in the Father’s glory. Now the Heaven in man rules over the earth, and John sees the New Jerusalem – the center of all spiritual activity – coming down from the realm of Spirit, but she was dressed as a Bride who has been prepared ready for her union with her husband.

Who is this Bride and who is her Husband? The woman represents mankind, all of whom became the woman in the Garden of Eden when Adam declared that his bones and his flesh were the same as the woman, because he believed she had been taken out of him. But she is now dressed as a bride, having recognized that her real husband is Christ. Her confused appearance in the Garden of Eden has been replaced by that of the Bride ready to be united with her Husband, who is Christ.

FOR HE THAT IS JOINED TO THE LORD IS ONE SPIRIT

The duality caused by the carnal mind has now disappeared, and the female that Adam considered had been taken out of him, has now appeared in a glorious union as one in Christ – male and female functioning together as one. In this glorious revelation, the man no longer has a separate identity either from the woman or from the Christ, for there is now only Christ Who is God, and not a man and the Christ dwelling in Him. What a transformation from the woman in the Garden of Eden who ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, that caused Adam to be put out of the Garden! But her husband Adam has also been transformed. Remember that Adam was Christ which we have discussed before, but Paul now reveals the secret. In 1 Corinthians 15:45, And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; but the last Adam was made a life-giving Spirit.

So many people have asked me why are there two Christs, the first one in the Garden of Eden and now this one in Paul’s writings. There is only one Christ – the first one “became” a living soul voluntarily after Adam suffered outside the Garden of Eden to become one with the woman who represented all of humanity. Adam did not sin, for God never mentioned the word sin. By eating the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he forfeited his right to fellowship with God, and was willing ultimately to pay the price of redemption on the cross to save all of mankind. Beloved, this adds a dimension to the death of Christ on the cross that religion has denied, and instead made that first man Adam who was Christ to be responsible for all the sin in the world.

So there is only one Christ, but He is manifested in the beginning as the first man, Christ Jesus who never had a body in Genesis 1:26, and then he appears in Genesis 2 as Jehovah Elohim, the man with God dwelling within, as Emanuel. Then in Genesis 2:7 we find Christ Jesus doing what he was directed to do, in Genesis 1:28 as the first man God created, which was to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. God did not mean to fill the earth with mortal human beings, but according to James 1:18 he says, Of His own will begot He us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first-fruits of His creatures, or the offspring of God.”

See also Acts 17:28. We read in Genesis 2:7 that Jehovah Elohim who was Christ Jesus that first man God created began to bring forth a manifestation of Himself by first preparing a body made from the dust of the Earth. When the body was complete, it could not move as it had no life in it. So He breathed into the nostrils of that man the same life He had received in creation, and the man Adam was also Christ, the offspring of God as a man with a body just as we are today. But that is where the reproduction ceased, for Adam also was required to reproduce out of himself, and also this was required of all mankind, but the entrance of the woman intervened.

BIRTHING THE CHRIST

What God required of mankind is that everyone should reproduce spiritually so as to fill earth with the offspring of God. The earth that has to be filled with Christ is our BODY before the rest of the earth will be affected. When we speak about birthing the Christ, please remember that it must start with conception. So let us start at the beginning, for first of all we must know that we are all virgins, for this is the first prerequisite. Remember that we all became the woman through Adam who aligned himself with the woman as “bone of his bones and flesh of his flesh.” None of us have birthed anything out of ourselves, nor could we, as the female aspect of the spirit within us according to our altered consciousness was missing, so we are all virgins.

We also need to know that we have all been espoused to one husband, and that is not the man to whom you are now married. Paul tells us, “We have all been espoused to one [that is the same] husband.” The Apostle Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 11:2 “For I am jealous over you with a godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one Husband that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.”

There is only one Husband for everyone, and that is Christ. Remember we are all the woman – the female aspect of the Spirit – and we have been joined since the beginning of creation to the Christ, as a part of the same Spirit, which is both male and female. We have never been separated from the Christ, except through the carnal mind that has convinced us first of all that we are all sinners, and then that the Female aspect of the spirit was separated from the male during the deep sleep put upon Adam in the Garden of Eden. What is God’s solution for us in dealing with our deceived mind that has robbed us of the truth of “who we are.” The answer is found in Philippians 2:5–8.

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not a thing to be grasped at, to be equal with God.

Because we were all created as spirit originally, which means that we were all divinely joined to the Christ in creation. But Adam, forgetting who he was originally, believed that in the deep sleep he was subjected to, the female part of his being was removed changing his consciousness, leaving him empty and alone.

The Christ-mind has the power to transform your body just as easily as the carnal mind can bring about a consciousness of sin, sickness, pain and suffering and a sense of being separated from God. The Apostle Paul pleads with us in Romans 12:1, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your spiritual worship. And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

Marriage today is in so many cases a very poor representation of what it was intended to be when expressed as the mind of Christ. The marriage vows today can be broken any time after the ceremony. But in God’s concept of marriage, it is forever and nobody and nothing can separate that which He joins together.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? He answer is that there is nothing that can now separate us now from our union with Christ. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35)

Once we put the woman back where she belongs as the Bride of the Christ, we shall see that we all are incorporated in that same Bride of Christ. Behold the beloved in all her glory!

Someone asked Jesus when He was on the earth about divorce. Jesus replied by explaining that Moses granted divorce in Israel for one reason, “because of the ‘hardness’ or stubbornness of your heart, which would not allow for reason or a change of mind.” That stubbornness persists to this day in so many break downs in the marriage relationships, even to the point of murder. We must be reminded that marriage was not the idea of mankind starting with Adam. Union and oneness was part of the mind of our heavenly Father from eternity past, in the relationship that God established with mankind in creation. For the man was created Spirit which is male and female joined together and functioning as o-n-e.

That is Christ and the man joined together as one Spirit. God’s edict states, concerning marriage today in Matthew 19:6, “Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

This is usually stated in the marriage ceremony; however, this is not the true application of the above verse. I could not be convinced that God has joined every couple who are married in this our day. But our original union with Christ was the divine will of God and therefore no one can break that union.

From Genesis 1:26, the moment when God spoke and said, “let us make man,” the relationship of marriage was established between the Christ and all of mankind. Paul received revelation from God and said in Ephesians 2:10, “We all were created with an eternal bonding to the Christ.”

We were created in Christ Jesus, and not as a separate entity from Him. You and Christ were united as O-N-E, not by our choice but by the divine decree, and never once with all our failures has God suggested that he wanted to separate from us. In God there is no divorce. When God said, “Let us make man”, there was the Christ with His Bride company complete in all her heavenly glory. How the truth revealed here reinforces the bond of love that exists between Christ and us! I would have to admit that many times I have provided reason for Christ to have abandoned me, but there has never been any such thought on His part.

“MY BELOVED IS MINE AND I AM HIS AND HIS BANNER OVER US IS LOVE.”

We have not yet even mentioned the Cross at Calvary where our Beloved declared His love for us in a measure beyond our comprehension: He laid down His life, the just for the unjust, reconciling us, the guilty party unto Himself, to become one with Him in death who said, “I am the resurrection and the life; he that believes in me though he were dead yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.” (John 11:25)

We died in Him and we were buried in the tomb with Him, for that bond could never be broken. We were resurrected with Him so that we could walk out of the tomb “as Him” on the third day. Not just as a man but as a mighty army to establish Christ as the Lord and King of His Kingdom on earth, until every knee bows and every tongue confesses that Jesus Christ is Lord. The victory is that not one man on this earth has ever been able to break the bond that binds them to the Christ, for the price of redemption for all was paid in full at Calvary.

If we all were created in Christ Jesus, then whatever He is, that is what we are. There are no conditions attached to this union which was ordained by God in eternity past, and no one born on this earth has been rejected from this union of Christ and the Man. This glorious reality is what mankind is eagerly waiting for so that mankind can return to the new heavens and the new earth, when the earth will reveal the glory of the Lord and the desert shall blossom as the rose.

How wonderful it is to know the truth, and then the truth will make us free. You have learned the truth and applied it and that is wonderful. The next step is even greater and it is that we not only know and believe that Christ is our true identity; the next step is to become that Christ that we are. Our body does not belong to us but to the Christ and therefore it is actually the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 6:19).

We must understand that this body does not belong to us but to the Christ for Him to use it to express Himself – not for us just telling people what the Christ can do, but to become the expression of the Christ Himself. What is the difference? Now we are telling people that Christ is their identity so they cannot be sick. But Jesus Christ 2000 years ago walked along the road and came to a blind man and just opened his eyes, to the lame man He said, “get up and walk”, and to the man lying on the couch at the pool of Bethesda for 38 years He just said, “pick up your bed and go home!”

In all of this we are reading about who we actually are. People saw Christ while He was on the earth, but since then we tell people, “you are Christ,” but the people never see Him walking down the road. For this to happen, we need to birth the Christ within ourselves by the spirit and not as a physical experience.

This is explained in Luke 1, using the young woman Mary who was a virgin. She could not give birth naturally, but by a spiritual process she actually birthed the Christ on this earth. But we are not required to birth a body for Him, because we already have His body. But we considered it was ours. We only need to birth the Spirit which is Christ into this body which is His Body.

Then this world will see Christ in a generation of people walking the streets just as Jesus did, and they will recognize the Christ. And the release from sickness and every other malady will be completed right there with no fuss or fanfare.

Can you imagine the change that will take place as the evidence of the Christ is revealed right there before them? But they will now meet Him on every street so no one will have to go and search for Him, for He will be multiplied until every person recognizes their true identity and there will only be Christ on the earth. Then shall be fulfilled the responsibility given to man in Genesis 1:28 to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth (with the God kind of people, who are His offspring).

My prayer in writing this book is that God’s people will fall in love with the Lover of their soul and enter into that love relationship which God established with all of mankind in creation. Then find that we actually form the Bride of Christ, having been united and made One from eternity past, “joined to the Lord so we are now one Spirit.” Ponder these things until the light of God reveals to you the truth that makes us free.

May the Lord open your eyes to see what has been hidden for so long.
