OUR SPIRITUAL PERSON IS ETERNAL IN THE HEAVENS

Man can only declare that which he is conscious of. What he is conscious of is that which he is. “As a man thinks in his heart so is he.” If he is conscious of flesh, he preaches about sin and flesh. Sinner or saint, man is always true to who he is. Father wills that all come to the consciousness of who they are in Him. Let us leave a legacy etched in the hearts of all who know us that we are desirous of nothing but Father being glorified in our lives. Amen?
Beloved, Truth shall prevail and save all the earth! Truth is Spirit – Christ, and Truth is absolute. All that the five senses knows equates to Adam’s fallen earthiness, and is corruptible. The serpent in Genesis 3 appealed to Eve’s sensuousness, thus “desire” became her god. She in turn persuaded her husband to become sensually intoxicated, falling into the context of earthiness. Eve saw the tree, it was “it was a tree to be desired.” Gen. 3:6
This whole context of desire was created in the innocent pair from the beginning, they were subjected to the “fall” intentionally by Father who “knows the end from the beginning.” “The creature was made subject to vanity by reason of him (God) who subjected the same in hope” (of Restoration). “Because the creature (creation) shall itself also be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.” Rom. 8:20, 21 Whatever man may say, it was “DESIRE” took number one priority in the disruption and expulsion of Adam and Eve from Eden.
Desire is many faceted, and comes to man in many forms, becoming a god to all getting hooked on its tentacle- like enticement’s. God told Moses, “You shall have no other gods before me.” That commandment has never been revoked. But it is the most transgressed commandment of them all. The tree of “desire” is sensual, appealing to the eyes. This god “desire” is temporal, having the carnal nature of man stamped all over it. “To be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
“Unto Adam and his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.” Gen. 3:21 He clothed the human family with flesh, bones, sinews, and skin. Thus spirit man became veiled in a physical body. This man – every man is now surrounded with matter. This god “desire” sits in the temple of God (all mankind) showing himself to be God, and his will must be obeyed, or hell is to be paid.
“All that is in the world, the lust (intense desire) of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world, and the world passes away, and the lust (intense desire) thereof: but he that does the will of God abides for ever.” 1 John 2:16, 17
Jesus spoke a parable of a “Wise man” who built his house on a rock, and a “foolish man” who built his house on the sand. The “Wise man is “Christ in you,” building on the reality of Truth and spirit with the conscious knowledge of His origin. The “foolish man” is the corruptible man building his house on the corruptible sand of his five senses. All spiritual realities are found inside you, the “INNER MAN.”
We were not physical before we came into a body, nor are we now. Though some believe they are. Our physical person (house) is one thing, while our concept person is another. One corruptible (mortal) one is “eternal in the heavens” (immortal).
“We know that if our earthly house of this tent were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house from heaven: if so be that being clothed we shall not be found NAKED.” 1 Cor. 5:1-3. Mankind that is not immersed into the Spirit Christ is “naked” as Adam was naked, but Christ “Clothes” the nakedness of repentant seekers in His Righteousness.
The ancient pair in Eden eating from the “tree” of “desire’ became naked, and passed spiritual nakedness to all mankind. The “fall of man” was his being “driven out” into a sensual, corruptible, mortal (false) identity of his reality. Gen. 3:24 He was driven out of Eden, but he was also “driven out” of his body of “light” into a body of flesh, until the “manifestation of the sons of God.” “Indeed, the earnest expectation of the creation longs for the revelation of the sons of God. for the creation was subjected to frailty, not voluntary, but by Him who placed it under: In hope that even the creation itself will be emancipated from the slavery of corruption, into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.” Rom. 8:19-21 Emphatic Diaglott Trams.
Man was driven out of his light body, and “clothed” with a dense body of flesh-darkness – “a little lower than angels” (elohim). Ps. 8, Heb. 2 We and all creation has felt “a little lower” (inferior), and of little worth. Now in Christ we are placed back into our true habitation, “clothed upon” by the Spirit as He totally rearranges our thinking processes. In our lowering from Edenic spirit, light and glory to confused identity and darkened body. Adam’s nakedness was spiritual nakedness, thus he found himself physical.
In Christ Jesus, Father is restoring our sense of “worth,” placing us as sons back into our true identity in Him who is “Light unapproachable.” In worship of our Father, he builds up our sense of worth. He reveals to our hearts that the only boundaries are in our mind, there are no boundaries in our Father. He is causing us to arise in the “New Man,” the Celestial Man, the “Lord from heaven,’ and realize our worth. Should you feel of little worth today as many do, the urgent need is to bow your heart before the Father and worship Him. The less one worships Father, the less esteem one has of his worth. Hoping no-one misconstrues what is said here, for no one is worthy outside of Christ, and His sacrifice at Calvary, then as they worship the Father, it becomes a fixed reality within.
Man transgresses against God by trying to know Him without having His Spirit. 1 Cor. 2:11-14 Men are teachers of others about God, and they themselves know Him not. Matt.7:20-23 Man is always teaching about Christ without knowing the Spirit, and are “workers of iniquity” according to Jesus in the texts above.
Father has opened up the heavens to us in the Spirit, thus we don’t just read about it in the Bible, for it is a present reality. I have met men who knew the bible from cover to cover, but did not know the Spirit.
The “old heavens are passing away with a loud noise,” and many refuse to leave them. Those old heavens have become a comfort zone to them. The Perfect Man is being seen and heard, and we are a part of Him, the Christ of many members. 1 Cor. 12:12. Father is now revealing to us His mysteries by the Spirit. This is the hour when the Spirit is speaking to set His house in order. We are “Father’s house of many mansions.” And when we meet another of the family, we know them. We speak the same language of our Father. We know our own by the language, as Father’s family speaks His language of love, harmony and peace. No slandering and ill will. “Love works no ill towards his neighbor.” Rom. 13:10 Our neighbor’s are the members of Christ’s body.
Heaven has come down to us, and we have inherited our Father’s state of being. People want to see Jesus come back physically so they can touch, feel and see Him as He was. But they won’t see Him as He was, but, “as he is,” in His glorified state within His Incrusted body.
Father comes to us in a new dimension of power and dominion. That which we are in is fixed, it cannot be lowered, or altered, yet ever progresses to a higher dimension in the Spirit. This glorious liberty in Christ that we are now in must advance into Father’s fullness of Spirit power. We are here to raise the dead that are walking around in flesh – people like Bishop Spock and the Jesus Seminar members. They are “The dead burying the dead.”
We stand in awe of Christ’s appearing in all Father’s chosen. All hearing this Word of life, it will catch them up into the heavens too. Our residence is in the heavens with Christ. Eph. 2:6. Not many recognize Him, but Christ is come in the flesh. And there are many who do see Him, and recognize Him. You see Him in one another. We also see Him within. Col.1:27, 1 Jn. 4:3. He has come into a world entangled in myriads of doctrines of no value, traditions of religion with lifeless worship – all revolving around clergymen and pastors. Most of them hearing the truth, never allow the Spirit to work it in their life. Most give preference to forms, ceremonies and rituals over the “living Bread come down from heaven that a man may eat thereof and not die.” John 6:50
I have already died and gone to heaven, while multitudes are waiting to die to go to heaven. I have already stood before the “Judgment seat of Christ” and have been acquitted of all sin and iniquity. “Blessed (happy) is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.” Rom. 4:8
“When Christ who is our life shall appear, then shall we also appear with him in his glory.’ Christ is our life and I am appearing with Him in His glory. “As he is so are we in this world.” Beloved, we are clothed with Him who is life, and we are filled with him. His Spirit and truth catches us up into Himself. We are ever on the mercy seat with him to offer mercy to those in need of understanding. Some seem to mot know the Father is merciful to sinner as well as to saint. And He makes His sun and rain to fall on the just and unjust alike.
The Bible is explicit in declaring the works of the devil (sin and death) were destroyed by Jesus. 1 Jn. 3:8 The (Last Adam’s) free gift of grace accomplished “much more” in justification for all, than the (First Adam’s) offence unto condemnation and death on all.” Rom. 5:15-17 If my words have reached your ears, it is the Father speaking to your heart without sound.
Most of today’s teachers are still telling people about Jesus in His incarnate form, and that is all they know. But we are ministering out of the risen glorified Lord within. He is blowing (symbolically) the golden trumpet. He is speaking in the majesty of our Father. We express Him from out of our innermost being where He resides. Christ is our life; He is our being. Upon hearing this divine word, people are coming into their realized consciousness of union with Father.
New trumpets are sounding in the body of Christ, in all the earth, prophesying new breath into Christendom’s dry bones. The word of life spoken from Father is rising the dead in the “valley of dry bones,” of all who will hear His voice. The “old wine skins” (of tradition) cannot hold this New Wine, they are hard set and brittle – now.
But concerning that word above, there is an anointing of a higher level of the Spirit that transforms everyone in its path. It goes over the head of those resisting change, like the Pharisee’s. This anointing comes out of a dimension of the Spirit where man cannot intrude or change its course, as has been in the past. The past has been revivals – I am not preaching revivals. Revivals are reviving the past moving of the Spirit. I am seeing and preaching the “Restoration of all things spoken by all the holy prophets since the world began.” Acts 3:19-21.
This anointing of the Spirit has a fervency to set in a new spiritual dimension of Spirit functioning. A new environment I see that is not contaminated by the mind of men. The spiritual environment is being formed quickly by Father’s wisdom. But some resigning to sensuality will find themselves left behind. I have been in places where everything sensuous was accepted. Father is bringing “sanctification” back into vogue as He prepares for His Son, Jesus Christ the “Captain of our salvation to lead us over Jordan into the Promised Land.
Father is saying, “Arise, get ready to cross over into the Promised Land.” Beloved, possessing the New Jerusalem and Zion, in the Father and Son is our Promised Land. “I saw no temple in it (New Jerusalem), for the Lord God, the omnipotent, is the temple of it, and the Lamb.” Rev. 21:22. Diaglott.
To arrive into this fullness, there are ferocious enemies to be overcome. Explicit faith, and obedience are the Father’s requirements. Our enemy the wars with no holds barred. But, “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations (speculations), and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience to Christ.“ 1 Cor. 10:4, 5
“Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and stand having your pure minds girded with the truth. This is a sevenfold enemy of mammoth size, but he shall be consumed with the breath of my mouth. And as I have led you forth in victory by faith of my Son in you, I shall lead you by my Spirit as Isaiah prophesied, “The Spirit of the Lord shall be upon him (my body), the spirit of wisdom, and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the spirit of fear of the Lord…” Ch. 11
The arm of flesh, that carnal mind has no part in this vital undertaking since the baptism of the Spirit at Pentecost. And the holy Father will keep His holy ones apprised of events as they arise. Put your trust in Him. Amen!
Beloved, thank you for your faithfulness in keeping this letter going to the nations. We are getting new names and addresses all the time, and are happy to get them.
I am predicting great things for 2006 in the kingdom of God. I predicted on 1-1-1980 that the next decade there would be confrontations in the powerful Political, and military of the nations. It came to pass, and the Soviet Union fell, the “Iron Curtain” was dissolved. The Berlin Wall came down, plus several other things.
God used President Ronald Reagan, and Mikahail Gorbachev to achieve that feat for His will in that day. Gorbachev gave his heart to Christ in the falling of the Soviet Empire. Thank God. He and his wife belongs to the Russian Orthodox church, and that is not where I would like to see him, but that is the Father’s business. Amen? I predict that there will be confrontations in the spiritual, and political and military through out the next decade – 2006 to 2016.
I am sure that this can be predicted at this point in time without any inspiration of the Holy Spirit by anyone. The Holy Spirit is poised to move across the world in an anointing of power (during the same time frame) as has not been seen since the early church.
Love and hugs
