INFANCY TO ADULTHOOD

FULLY COMPLETED

Spiritual growth begins when a person becomes born again. At that stage the newborn baby Christian begins to grow. The goal is to become a fully mature Son of God and leave the baby and the teenage realms in God. There are stages of growth, and not all Christians will fully mature.

God has made provision in his Word for all stages of spiritual development, from the “Milk” of the Word to the “Meat.” He also provided us with a mixture of milk and meat, so that we can make the transition to pure meat without choking. But His goal for us is clear, He wants us to fully mature into spiritual adulthood.

This process begins when we are a “Believer.” Many stay at this stage their entire life and never leave the Milk realm. Entire denominations are dedicated to this spiritual kindergarten realm. It is a necessary step, but no Meat is there to provide spiritual growth.

The next step is not only to “Believe” the Word but also to “Receive” it. The believer needs to now learn how to receive God’s truth, and go on to the deeper things of the word.  Believers needs to also Receive the Holy Spirit into their life. The Holy Spirit will then begin to teach you all things.

Now the Believer has become a Believer/Receiver, and real spiritual growth begins. Slowly and gently the Holy Spirit begins to introduce Meat into the diet of the Believer.

There are many denominations that have a mixture of milk and meat, or a mixture of law and grace. Every denomination is a mixture of truth and tradition. Some have more tradition than truth and vice versa. There is no denomination with all truth. The Holy Spirit is the one with ALL truth.

The Believer/Receiver will begin the process of leaving the Milk realm. Milk will no longer satisfy those who have begun to taste Meat. But sadly there are many who remain in this mixture realm of spiritual creamed chipped beef.

There will be a small number of Christians who will even leave the Believer/Receiver realm and eat only the Meat of the Word. They will grow into full maturity and leave the mixture realm. They will become Conceivers of the Word.

Some Christians will have grown from infancy to adulthood, and they will eventually be ready for marriage. They will not only Believe the Word, but they will also Receive the Word into their life. The Overcomers will then take the final step and actually Conceive the Word, and it will ultimately manifest them into the 100 fold realm of glory.

THE BELIEVER

John 9:35-38 …Dost thou Believe on the Son of God?  36 He answered and said, “Who is he, Lord, that I might Believe on him?” 37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. 38 And he said, Lord, I Believe.

The first step in a personal relationship with Jesus is to simply Believe, and that is all. I remember sitting in church listening to the choir sing the song:

Only Believe…Only Believe…All Things are Possible…Only Believe.”

This is the first major step in every Christian’s life, when they make a decision to Believe on Jesus. They give their Heart to Jesus and decide to Believe on Him as their personal savior.

BELIEVERS – BABES – MILK

1 Peter 2:2 As Newborn Babes, desire the sincere Milk of the Word, that ye may grow thereby:

Hebrews 5:13 For every one that useth Milk is Unskillful in the Word of righteousness: for he is a Babe.

Babies need special care, especially if they are a newborn Baby. You do not expect much out of a Baby and the Bible says they are Unskillful in the Word. They Believe the Word, but they also have a tendency to Believe everything that is told them, especially if it comes from the pulpit. As Christians mature they realize not everything they hear is true.

Some Churches are dedicated to Newborn Babies, and that is all they are interested in. Many fundamental Churches are only interested in one question, “Do you Believe in Jesus, brother?”  There is nothing wrong with this realm, but it is only the first stage of Christian development. Many Churches are filled with Christians that have remained as Spiritual Babies for 30 years or more. They keep partaking of the Milk of the Word, year after year, and never develop and grow like God intended.

1 Corinthians 3:2 I have fed you with Milk, and not with Meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

Babies will choke if you feed them meat before they are ready for it. The problem in many fundamental Churches is that those who are in the pulpit are themselves babes. So there is a dilemma, in that babies are deciding what the menu will be each Sunday. That is like asking a child to plan the dinner menu for the family!

If Children are left to decide what to eat, they choose things like Ice Cream, Milk Chocolate, Cookies, Candy and other sweet things. Each Sunday many churches serve up a steady diet of the Milk of the Word. They tickle their ears with sweet Words week after week and this simply cannot produce anything other than babies.

Nobody can blame a baby for being a baby. And it is easy to overlook the mistakes that babies make all the time, because you don’t expect a baby to be perfect. But nobody likes to see someone drinking out of a baby bottle as an adolescent or an adult. Yes, these babies go to heaven when they die, and they will get a believers reward.

1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a Child, I spake as a Child, I understood as a Child, I thought as a Child: but when I became a Man, I put away Childish things.

BELIEVERS HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE

Those who believe in Jesus will have everlasting life.

John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that Believeth on me hath everlasting life.

John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that Heareth my Word, and Believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

BELIEVERS SEE THE KINGDOM

Yes believers are those who have been born again and if they die, they will go to heaven. They see the kingdom!

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot SEE the Kingdom of God. (KJV)

BABES DO NOT UNDERSTAND MYSTERIES!

Babies need rules and laws to keep them in line. They are unskillful in the Word and need others to tell them what God wants them to do.

Luke 8:10-11 And he said, Unto You it is given to know the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that Seeing they might not See, and Hearing they might Not Understand.  11 Now the parable is this: ***The SEED is the WORD*** of God.

A baby has no idea of the things that adults do. While their eyes are opened, they simply Do Not Understand the deeper things of God.

THE BELIEVER/RECEIVER

There is a difference between being just a “Believer” and being a Believer and a Receiver. The Mystery is this, “The Seed is the Word!”

John 17:8 For I have given unto them the Words (Seeds) which thou gavest me; and they have Received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, AND they have Believed that thou didst send me.

Acts 19:2 He said unto them, Have ye Received the Holy Ghost SINCE ye Believed? And they said unto him, “We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.”

Mark 4:20 And these are they which are Sown on good ground; such as Hear the Word, AND Receive it, and bring forth fruit, some Thirty fold, some Sixty, and some an Hundred.

This is all about Seed planting. Babies do not know how adults plant seeds. In fact you never tell a baby about the birds and the bees. They must first mature to become adolescents and then teenagers. Remember the Mystery is that the Word is the Seed.

Believers are the babes and they will believe most anything they are told. Just as children believe in a Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny, so also the Baby Christian is subjected to many “Santa Clause” type doctrines.

Each group will have its own idea about baptisms, repentance and healing etc. These are all classified as the Milk of the Word in Hebrews Ch. 5 and 6. The Bible instructs us to leave that baby realm.

Hebrews 5:12-14 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; and are become such as have need of Milk, and Not of Strong Meat.  13 For every one that useth Milk is Unskillful in the Word of righteousness: for he is a Babe.  14 But Strong Meat belongeth to them that are of Full Age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Hebrews 6:1-2 Therefore Leaving the Principles of the Doctrine of Christ, let US go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2 Of the Doctrine of Baptisms, and of Laying on of Hands, and of Resurrection of the dead, and of Eternal Judgment.

BELIEVER/RECEIVER ENTERS THE KINGDOM

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall Enter into the Kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father, which is in heaven. (KJV)

Babies can SEE the Kingdom, but if you want to ENTER the Kingdom you must mature by going beyond being a believer, to becoming a believer/receiver.

John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of Water AND of the Spirit, he cannot ENTER into the Kingdom of God.

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall Enter into the Kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Some Christians Believe on Jesus and then stop there. Some Believe on Jesus and Receive the Holy Spirit. They are those who have grown up and want to receive more of what God has. The Holy Spirit will “Teach” them and they will Receive the Word (Seed). The Holy Spirit brings all things to their “Remembrance.” They receive what the Holy Spirit brings to them in the way of truth.

When two people decide to get married, the Woman Believes that the Man will provide for her. The Woman also Believes that the Man is able to give her some children. But she has not yet Received the seed, even though she Believes he is capable.  After they are married, then she can not only Believe, but now also Receive. There is a difference, and it applies to the Spiritual Seed or Word within us.

Remember that Sarah was barren and could not conceive. She believed Abraham was able to give her a son. Sarah also received his seed, but her womb remained barren. Then God opened her womb and she conceived the seed and brought forth the promised son.

Hebrews 11:11 Through Faith (Believer) also Sara herself Received (Receiver) strength to Conceive (Conceiver) seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised. (KJV)

BELIEVERS/RECEIVERS/CONCEIVERS –NEVER DIE!

John 6:50-51 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and Not Die.  51 I (Jesus) am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, He Shall Live For Ever (KJV)

While a wife Believes that her husband is able to give her children, she must also Receive his seed. That is not the end of it either, the wife must then Conceive that seed to bring forth a child, or in our case a Manchild.

The Manifested Sons of God will be the result of God’s seed coming to full maturity. They are also called the Remnant or Manchild in Revelation 12, and they sit IN the very Throne of God according to Rev 3:21! These Sons grow up to become exactly like Jesus, the pattern Son!

1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, We Shall Be Like Him; for we shall see him as he is. (KJV)

They Overcome every enemy, even death. The seed they receive takes root within the loins of their minds, and it will bring forth the 100 fold Mind of Christ. The fully mature Sons will not stop anywhere along the way in their spiritual development. They become One with Jesus and the Father.

We have heard about these things for years but some day, like Sarah, we too shall conceive and bring forth the promise of the Father. There will be a group of fully mature Sons who will be conformed into his image and likeness. Our womb will not always be barren, God will open it to conceive his seed.

Isaiah 54:1 Sing, O Barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD. (KJV)

Galatians 4:19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you, (KJV)

MEAT EATERS LIVE FOREVER!

Hebrews 5:14 But strong Meat belongeth to them that are of Full Age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. (KJV)

John 4:32-34 But he (Jesus) said unto them, I have Meat to eat that ye know not of.  33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat? 34 Jesus saith unto them, My Meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

John 6:54-58 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.  55 For my flesh is Meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.  56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even He Shall Live by me. 58  This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall Live For Ever.

SEPARATE THE MEAT FROM THE MILK

God was very specific in the Old Testament when he gave laws to Israel. We are not bound to the letter of the old law, but we can see the spiritual significance of it for today.

Israel was commanded not to cook their Meat in, or with Milk. That means No creamed chipped beef, because it mixes the meat with the milk. Even today, orthodox Jews will not eat a Cheeseburger? Why? Because cheese is a dairy or milk product, and it is placed on meat!

Exodus 34:26 (KJV) Thou shalt not seethe (cook) a kid in his mother’s Milk.

Exodus 34:26 (NIV) Do not cook a young goat in its mother’s Milk.

The same principle applies to the spiritual meat and milk. The last part of Hebrews Chapter 5 tells us the same thing. We must begin to separate the meat from the milk of the Word. We must rightly divide the word of truth and understand that some of it is milk, intended for babies.

Hebrews Chapter 6 follows the same thought of milk and meat as it tells us to Leave the Milk realm. Eventually, all healthy teenagers grow up and leave home. There comes a time when mature Christians must label certain milky doctrines and teachings as mere steps toward a goal of perfection. Before full maturity can occur we must leave the basic milk doctrines, it may also mean leaving the security of a home denomination or organization to seek the truth.

Ephesians 5:31-32 For this cause shall a MAN leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.  32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the Church. (KJV)

Hebrews 6:1-2 Therefore LEAVING the Principles of the Doctrine of Christ, let Us go on unto Perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2 Of the Doctrine of Baptisms, and of Laying on of Hands, and of Resurrection of the Dead, and of Eternal Judgment. (KJV)

INFANCY TO ADULTHOOD

1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a Man, I put away childish things. (KJV)

Adults leave home when they are ready for marriage or union. Spiritual Adults are the ones who are aware of spiritual union.

The Believer/Receiver/Conceiver will bring forth good Fruit! Jesus is in Spiritual Union with the Father and there will be a group of fully mature Sons that also will be one with them. Every earthly father wants his son to grow up to be everything he is and more. How much more does our Heavenly Father desire for us to fully mature, and grow up to be like Jesus and Him?

John 17:22 And the Glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that They may be One, even as We are One: (KJV)

Those who fully mature will hear the word, receive the word and finally they will conceive and bring forth the 100 fold result! They will put on the mind of Christ and be like Jesus, who was the firstborn among many bretheren.

Romans 8:29 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.

UNDERSTAND = CONCEIVE = KNOW

Matthew 13:23 But he that Received Seed into the good ground is he that Heareth the Word, AND Understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an Hundredfold, some Sixty, some Thirty. (KJV)

Understanding is the same as Knowing or Conceiving. When you conceive what someone is saying, you understand what they are saying.

Philippians 3:10 That I may Know him, and the power of his resurrection… (KJV)

FULLY COMPLETED

Mark 4:28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the Blade, then the Ear, after that the Full Corn in the ear.

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and Bring Forth Fruit, and that your fruit should Remain

You have been chosen to become a Conceiver! This is Not your idea or my idea, it’s God’s idea. Jesus says to be fruitful and conceive his seed, or word, which is in your Hearts and Minds.

Can God’s seed produce anything less than himself? Some will experience the 100 fold realm of full maturity in God. They will Believe and Receive and Conceive God’s Word. It will happen to someone, it could be you?

Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give You the Kingdom. (KJV)
