The Man Who Became Christ

       Her closest friends said he was conceived out of wedlock. The shame marred her young life, which was made the more pathetic by her invention of outlandish fables to assuage her guilt.

       They say the illegitimate child was birthed into poverty and reproach, apparently born in a dirty stable. His youth was nondescript. He received no education beyond the common.

       When thirty years old he started a cult. His unorthodox ideas attracted a following of indolent peasantry, fishermen and the like. He spent his time traveling, stealing corn, and camping by the lake. He enjoyed the company of harlots, drifters, and tax collectors.

       Publicly, he made himself a haughty nuisance, ridiculing men of education and honor. He rejected authority and lambasted government leaders, calling them “snakes” and “hypocrites.” Most of the time he wandered aimlessly, building his sect of followers and encouraging them to join him in boorish vagrancy.

       After three and a half years it all caught up with him. He was convicted of sedition and executed as a common criminal. For pity’s sake he was buried in the tomb of a relative.

       Such was the perspective of the carnal minds of his day. But this man was supremely blessed of God, and lived a life designed by the perfect wisdom of God. For after his crucifixion, God raised him from the dead, and set him upon the throne of the heavens in majestic glory.

       This was the earthly sojourn of the firstborn Son of the Living God. By this brief experience in shame and suffering, he obtained a name that is above every name, and even now all time is reckoned from his birth. By his development on earth he obtained every eternal treasure, and was filled with all the fullness of God. Such is the love of God for him, and for you.

       At his baptism at the Jordan river, Jesus became Jesus the Christ, an immortal spirit being- but he still had to grow up. After every conception comes gestation. For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground. After his baptism, Jesus still needed to be made perfect through suffering. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. Jesus still needed a painful education in obedience. Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered. He still needed to learn about sin.For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin.

       Prior to his resurrection, Jesus still lacked certain pieces of critical information. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Jesus lacked from the universal splendor that his Father possessed. For my Father is greater than I. The extent of his authority was curbed and not yet infinite. To sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give. Jesus was still in training, and his power was subject to the limitations of a training environment. The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do.

       Thus began the three and a half years that is commonly called the “ministry” of Jesus Christ. During this time, Jesus accomplished the tasks his Father gave him. He taught the message of Sonship and validated it with miracles. I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me.

       But this “ministry” was exceedingly narrow in scope. It was not the sweeping, celestial blast of a glorified Son of God. More appropriately, these three and a half years should be called the “maturing” of Jesus Christ for during these years Jesus was personally matured to perfection. The actions of his life were devoted entirely to the acquisition of spiritual maturity for himself, and ultimately for his firstborn brothers.

       The true ministry of Jesus Christ has not yet begun. It will not begin until all the firstborn Sons of God are conceived, matured, and born into that corporate ruling counsel known as the “Body of Christ.” I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

       When Jesus was baptized at the Jordan River his spirit joined with the spirit of his Father. This was a new spiritual conception, and Jesus became Jesus the Christ, a spiritually begotten Son of God.

       According to the plan of God, his begotten Sons are to complete their gestation within an earthly womb of good and evil. Thus immediately after spiritual conception at his baptism, Jesus was dispatched into Satanic attack.

       Guided by the spirit and his new heavenly vision, Jesus was sent into the wilderness near Gilgal. And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness. Like baptism, Gilgal also represents spiritual conception, for it was Israel’s first, tiny possession in the land of Canaan. Gilgal was like an embryo from which grew the possession of all the promised land. In the wilderness near Gilgal, Jesus remained forty days, being taught and tested by the spirits of God.

       The wilderness was a crash course in the spirit realm. During this time God unfolded his plan and illuminated the destiny for his firstborn Son. Trials and temptations are the gestation of a begotten spirit. And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.

       The Satanic onslaughts against Jesus continued sporadically for the rest of his life. He turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. But Satan never found any foothold in the sinless flesh or in the begotten spirit of Jesus Christ. All of these events simply ensured his spiritual maturity. For the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. Finally, it was Satanic betrayal that pushed Jesus into personal perfection, via the cross at Calvary. Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them.

       Betrayal and murder are the progenitors of forgiveness, and this is the path to becoming agape-love. By his betrayal and murder at Calvary, Jesus became eternal love, and was made worthy to inherit the universe. Had he not endured this hardship, and been slain, he would not have been worthy. Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

       During his earthly sojourn Jesus Christ worked entirely under the direction of his Father. The miracles that Jesus did were provided by God to substantiate his message. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me. It was his Father that did the miracles. The Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

       Whether feeding the five thousand, walking on water, healing the sick, calming the sea, or casting out devils, all things were intended to validate his Father’s plan. If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works. For Jesus this was a time of spiritual gestation. He was still learning, and he demonstrated the instruction he received. I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

       The miracles of Jesus were wonderful, but these temporal blessings were not his primary mission. Many thousands of people ate from the loaves and fishes but then were dismissed by the Master. They that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away. Everyone can receive from the wonderful earthly bounty of Jesus Christ, but this is not the best he has to offer. Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. Temporal, physical blessings, are only the crumbs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

       By many miracles, Jesus could feed you, clothe you, heal you, forgive your sin, and raise you from the dead. Like some sort of spiritual amusement park, he could let you walk on water and cast out devils. He could possess you totally, but you would possess nothing.

       The benevolence of God’s plan is much grander than this. For the real mission of Jesus Christ was not to show you miracles, but rather, to give you autonomous spirit life. Rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

       Since the beginning of time throughout the created realm, life has always been transferred as a seed. Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself. And each of these seeds when mature, produces a life that is identical to the original parent.

       So also, it was the mission of Jesus Christ to perfect an overcoming seed of resurrected spirit life. I am come that they might have life. This seed could then be planted inside the spirits of men. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. With the acquisition of this spirit seed, every Adamite can reproduce all that Jesus Christ is. Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.

       Those who receive this seed into their own spirit will conceive a new spirit being; one that has never existed before. This new spirit embryo is a begotten Son of God. These infants will then have the opportunity to complete a spiritual gestation on earth, exactly as Jesus demonstrated. When they come to spirit birth, they will be resurrected as the full blood brothers of Jesus Christ. But as many as received him [the seed], to them gave he power to become the sons of God.

       At the present time, God is only working to bring forth a small “firstfruits” company of Sons. I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me. He is not calling all people to this firstborn group. As many as were ordained to eternal life believed. The imperative ministry of Jesus Christ was only for the completion of his firstborn brothers. Those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost. All the other people heard only fanciful stories. Without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

       The teachings of Jesus Christ were all devoted to explaining “Sonship.” He called it the “Kingdom of Heaven.” This is a cryptic phrase that represents the begetting of God’s spiritual offspring. This was the only subject that Jesus ever talked about. From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven [Sonship] is at hand.

       The “Kingdom of Heaven” is not of this world, for it is not entered using a physical door. The only doorway to this kingdom is through the birth of righteousness in you. Except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. This kingdom will be obtained by those who desire spiritual perfection, more than any earthly thing. Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? The pursuit of this spirit birth is the only endeavor worthy of your time on this planet. Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

       The Kingdom of Heaven (Sonship) is entered through earthly travail. Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. The inheritors of this Kingdom appear now to weep. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. But by their fleeting sorrow, they purchase an eternal possession in the spirit realm. Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.

       Some things will definitely disbar you from the Kingdom of Heaven. Earthly wealth is a great obstacle that guards the entrance. A rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. A passion for human affairs will turn you from its gate. They made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise. Organized religion will not enter into the Kingdom of Sonship. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. Those who adore the physical but cannot perceive the spirit, will fail to enter this begotten realm. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them.

       The Kingdom of Heaven (Sonship) is not open to all people, or even to all Israelites. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. In fact, it is not open to people at all. Those who remain human, will not be accepted. He saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. John the Baptist was the best human ever born, but humans are not admitted into the Kingdom of Heaven. Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

       Do not think for an instant that any physical thing or natural heritage will get you into this spiritual domain. Human birth alone leaves you woefully short of the Kingdom of God. Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. To find the entrance to Sonship, you must turn your life upside down and expunge the glory of men. Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. This kingdom can only be entered by a new spirit birth, which opens into a new sphere of existence. Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

       The Kingdom of Heaven is like a small seed planted in a field. Or like a net that gathers many fish, but selects only a few. It is acquired by the mixture of old treasures with new, as your spirit combines with the seed of life from Christ Jesus. Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

       At the end of this dispensation, Jesus Christ will certainly rule over physical beings who dwell on the earth. But the phrases, “the Kingdom of God” and “the Kingdom of Heaven,” do not refer to anything physical. They speak of something entirely different. The Kingdom of Heaven is not Republican or Democrat. It is not a gaggle of “good” people, gloating in earthly ease or carnal splendor. It is not a happy place where people live during the Millennium.

       The Kingdom of Heaven is not a place at all it is a state of being. The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! It is the condition of possessing autonomous life. For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. It is the dimension where God now resides. It is beyond the created realm of flesh or even spirit. It is the Begotten Realm. It is the celestial habitation of God and his immortal Sons. No one else enters or can even perceive this abode in the ethereal realm of begotten glory. For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

       The Kingdom of Heaven is Sonship, and it is a precious prize sought for and pursued by the greatest warriors who will ever exist. From the days of John the Baptist until the present time the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force, as a precious prize. A share in the heavenly kingdom is sought for with most ardent zeal and intense exertion. Matthew 11:12 (Amplified).

       The Kingdom of Heaven is open only to the spiritual offspring of Elohim. Unless it is conceived within you, you will never see it. Jesus Christ dwelt in this kingdom in 33 AD, while standing in Roman occupied Jerusalem. No man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

       The earthly mission of Jesus Christ was to create an entrance into the Begotten Realm for himself and his firstborn brothers. Thus he preached only the “Kingdom of God,” and this is the begetting of Sonship.

The Maturing of Jesus Christ

       In the garden of Eden, mankind entered the fallen realm of failure and depravity. At the Tree of Good & Evil, Adam was infused with Satanic iniquity, and death passed upon all men. As a result of Adam’s transgression God cursed the mind and body of man. In that fallen state man would remain for four thousand years, until the process could be reversed by Jesus Christ.

       The sinful nature of man needed to be obliterated. Satan’s stranglehold needed to be broken. Fallen man needed to be redeemed. Death needed to be destroyed. The curses of Eden needed to be eradicated. Agape-love needed to be birthed. And a group of sinless spirit seeds of life needed to be perfected, that could reproduce all these same genetics inside every man. All this would be accomplished by the maturing of Jesus Christ.

       Jesus knew that he was God’s plan for the perfecting of his brothers. Now, as he saw them stranded in veiled ignorance and spiritual death, the desire of Jesus burned to affect their deliverance. And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

       Jesus grieved for the empty anguish of his Elohim-Adamite brothers, and desired that they also should partake of spirit life. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am. He became consumed with this singular purpose, desiring that his brethren might share in the same glory that he had obtained. That they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

       But Jesus was not yet able to share his life, for he was not yet fully mature. He had not yet reached spiritual “puberty.” Jesus still needed to complete his own personal growth. Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

       Jesus Christ still needed to surrender unto self-sacrifice. He needed to give his life for the thankless and the ungrateful. He needed to pour out all his goodness, affection, and care, trading them for the contemptuous ridicule of the foolish and the carnal. Jesus required the bewildering agony of giving all he possessed to those who would despise and disdain him, and spit on him, and turn on him, and crucify him. Love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

       Jesus Christ still needed to become agape-love. He still needed to generate agape-love within himself. This love is developed on earth, and matured individually by the anguish of lies, betrayal, and rejection. Greater love (agape) hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. It is birthed amidst Satanic destruction, as selfishness wounds kindness. Agape is formed as virtue drains from the gash made by the ingratitude of carnal ignorance. Agape is born as grievous personal evil against you is vaporized by forgiveness. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

       Without these things, agape-love cannot be formed in you. Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. Every Son of God must develop this love individually. Walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God. Jesus still needed to perfect this agape-love within himself, and this he did by his cross. Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.

       By the cross Jesus Christ completed his own personal perfection. And as a byproduct he gained the power to redeem the fallen Adamic race. By his cross Jesus perfected the first batch of sinless spirit seeds that could be planted into his Elohim brothers. These spirit seeds contained the power they required to follow him to resurrection.

       With this in mind, Jesus pressed for his own victory. He resolved to give his life for you, that he might be enabled to give his life to you. And for their sakes I sanctify myself. This became his consuming desire, as he pursued Gethsemane. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

       With unearthly intensity Jesus set his resolve and focused on his cross. And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. Every earthly care waned and fell away as the importance of his death loomed into view. And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem. This compelling quest pushed Jesus the few remaining steps to his perfection. And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer.

       According to the plan of God, Satan entered into Judas on the eve of Passover. And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly. This was the last time that Satan assaulted Jesus Christ. This was the final battle, and it brought Jesus to Gethsemane. This is your hour, and the power of darkness.

       At Gethsemane, Jesus retraced the steps of Adam. Adam had been hand-made by God as a sinless being. So also, Jesus Christ had been physically conceived by God as a sinless being. Just as Adam was betrayed in the garden of Eden, so also Jesus was betrayed in the garden of Gethsemane. Both instances brought forth the curses of Eden and heralded the arrival of carnal minded death. This was the last step necessary for Jesus to experience all the evil that his Elohim brethren had been born into. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren.

       In Gethsemane, Jesus took upon himself all the sins of mankind. The LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. To accomplish this, Jesus did not go out and commit any evil. Instead, he simply accepted the curses of Eden. This made him like all the other Adamites. And with these curses came the source of Adamic failure. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin.

       At Gethsemane a dark specter slithered near and settled around the sinless lamb. Engulfed in a horror of foreboding, Jesus Christ fell into anguish and a black mist oozed its way into his thoughts. And He took with Him Peter and James and John, and began to be struck with terror and amazement and deeply troubled and depressed. Mark 14:33 (Amplified). Slowly gripped by the virulent fingers of cursed carnality, Jesus’ joy was extinguished and his earthly hopes abandoned. And He said to them, My soul is exceedingly sad, overwhelmed with grief, so that it almost kills Me! Mark 14:34 (Amplified).

       With the curses of Eden came the twofold enmity of the carnal mind and a diseased body. And being in an agony of mind, He prayed the more earnestly and intently; and his sweat became like great clots of blood dropping down upon the ground. Luke 22:44 (Amplified).

       With the poison of the carnal mind, Jesus for the first time discovered within himself a desire for failure. His own best interests became clouded and confused. Jesus knew that the cross was his destiny. Yet now for the first time, he sought to avoid it. And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me.

       Earlier, when Peter had suggested that he should avoid the cross, Jesus had rebuked him as Satan. Yet in Gethsemane Jesus requested the same thing. If Jesus had successfully avoided the cross, he would have brought the plan of God to ruin. This desire for failure was new to Jesus, and came from the self-preservation of the carnal mind.

       Quickly this desire for Satanic self-preservation was struck down by Jesus’ immortal spirit. In a battle intense as life itself, Jesus silenced carnality, by willing surrender unto self-sacrifice. Saying, ... nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. As this warfare raged the celestial halls echoed with pain, and the servants of God were dispatched to his aid. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

       Like Adam, Jesus was not deceived. Jesus knew the ramifications of his actions, and took the curses of Eden willingly, at the sovereign direction of God. Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. By this, Jesus annexed all the sins of mankind, yet his spirit remained sinless. Only a sinless lamb was an acceptable sacrifice for Calvary’s cross. The sins of mankind did not corrupt the immortal spirit of Jesus. Instead, they became a loathsome burden, a package of horror that he was required to carry all the way to his cross.

       This is the same situation in your life today. Your spirit has not sinned, just as Jesus never sinned. Your spirit has been enslaved, coerced, and deceived, but the sin has fallen upon your carnality. For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son. The curses of Eden are tyrants that you will serve until you are empowered to kill them and throw off their oppression. By this warfare you will also perfect and redeem the spirit within you. The body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

       Jesus had been specially prepared for this eventuality. He had been conceived of God, both physically and spiritually. He knew precisely what to do. Having gained the Satanic carnal mind in the evening, the next morning Jesus took it to the cross and crucified it.

       By taking the curses of Eden unto himself, Jesus mandated his own crucifixion, for these curses come with the sentence of death. For in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. At the cross, Jesus carried out this sentence. After acquiring the curses in Gethsemane, he killed them at Calvary. By this victory Jesus Christ became the first man to destroy the Satanic carnal mind, and to eradicate the curses of Eden in his own life. God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh.

       By this willing surrender unto self-sacrifice, Jesus Christ became God’s prescription for Adamic failure. Jesus completed his spiritual maturity by the death of carnality. This is the same process that must happen in you. The birth of the carnal mind launched the fallen Adamic race. The crucifixion of this mind is the end of the Adamic race. As you crucify your own carnal mind, you will eradicate the curses of Eden in your own life, and be birthed into the Begotten Realm. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who ... being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him.

       This willing surrender unto self-sacrifice is the maturing of agape-love, and the path that leads to resurrection. Therefore doth my Father love (agapao) me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. Agape-love can be birthed only at certain rare portals of opportunity, as your cross emerges from the mist. The birth of agape-love demands giving all that you are, in the face of grim adversity. At the cross, the firstbegotten Son of God gave all that he had. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself.

       Jesus knew that all things in the universe came from his Father’s wisdom. He saw his Father’s purpose in every work, whether labeled good or evil. He felt his Father’s love swaddling every action. Thus he lived in total surrender to his Father’s will. From conception to crucifixion, Jesus Christ lived in abandonment to the perfect working of God. He was not fighting evil- he was experiencing it, at the direction of God. All things are delivered unto me of my Father.

       This knowledge of God’s limitless sovereignty is true power. It is the authority required to destroy the self-preservation of carnality. By his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many. In Gethsemane, Jesus did not surrender to evil or to human circumstance. He surrendered to the wisdom of his Father. Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?

       Jesus understood the supreme sovereignty of God and demonstrated this knowledge by choosing the secret wisdom of the cross. Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? He could have prevented his own crucifixion, but this would not have achieved his goals. Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight.

       Jesus faced his crucifixion alone. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled. His closest friends denied him, betrayed him, and deserted him. Saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.

       The Son of God was made subject to the pathetic forces of the common religious and civil governments. Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him. But this ridiculous visible authority was only a patsy. For these dullards were the same people who had already been rejected for the anointing of John, by-passed for the Melchisedec priesthood, and dismissed with the multitude. Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.

       Jesus was not really alone. Though the situation was grim, he was actually in the hands of his loving Heavenly Father. Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above. Every stroke of the whip was the wisdom of divine love. Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. Through painful taunting mockery, Jesus was given the opportunity to perfect this love within himself. And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, and said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.

       This is the only way it happens. The nails, the spear, and the thorns solidified his character and pierced him with power. This evil treatment was not the result of any wrong doing in his life. Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man. Jesus’ crucifixion was the result of having done everything just right. The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.

       Jesus Christ was cast out of the city and crucified on Calvary’s hill. In lonely pain and apparent failure, Jesus surrendered to a seemingly senseless waste.

       But this sad picture of defeat was in fact the greatest victory ever conceived in the mind of God. For the cross of Jesus Christ was the culmination and transfer of God’s wisdom. All the aeonian works of God focused on that moment, and the future of the heavens teetered with anticipation.

       At the cross, the forces of life surrendered to the power of death, and the laws of eternity suddenly turned, to be based on giving rather than receiving. Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. At the cross, love conquered fear, and obedience overcame selfishness. At the cross, for the first time in history, a love for God preempted every other value in the universe. For love is strong as death. By his cross, Jesus Christ became agape-love, crucified the curses of Eden, and obtained his own perfection. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ

       Jesus had a wonderful glory before the world was. But this splendor was only as a servant in his Father’s house. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. Jesus also had a unique glory prior to his cross, but those were still the days of his humility. Jesus Christ came to universal, eternal perfection, only after his death and resurrection.

       After three days in the tomb the boundless authority of radiant life exploded in Jesus Christ and he rose from the dead. Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. This resurrection was not to the life of an Adamic man, but rather, to the life of an immortal creator.

       By this resurrection Jesus Christ became the firstbegotten Son of God in the fullest possible sense. In that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. At his resurrection Jesus entered a new state of being as the limitless deity that he is today. It was then that he began to display all the opulent character and power of his Father. Who, being the effulgence of His grandeur, and the representative of His essence, supporting all things by His powerful Decree, having made a purification from sins, seated Himself in right of the Majesty on high. Hebrews 1:3 (Fenton).

       After his resurrection Jesus’ knowledge was complete. His maturity was achieved. His agape-love was infinite. His power was universal and absolute. And he had a new body, fashioned at will from congealed spirit. Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body.

       Having reached this state of spiritual “puberty,” Jesus was then capable of sharing his life. By his crucifixion and resurrection he had perfected an overcoming spirit. A cellule or “seed” from his spirit then contained all the genetics of his spiritual victory. This spirit seed had the power to eradicate the curses of Eden. It could empower willing surrender unto self-sacrifice, and instigate the birth of agape-love.

       Immediately after his resurrection, Jesus presented himself to his Father as the wave sheaf offering of the feast of Harvest. Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father. No firstfruits in all the land of Israel could be eaten until after this ceremony. The firstfruits of the Elohim-Adamites, the brothers of Jesus Christ, were held in abeyance until this feast was fulfilled.

       Jesus then hastened to his brothers to share the unveiled wisdom of God’s plan. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day.

       Only twenty four hours after his resurrection Jesus used fear to assemble his disciples in the upper room. Jesus then appeared in their midst and proclaimed the limitless victory of his own perfection. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Jesus could not say those words at any time prior to his crucifixion.

       By his death and resurrection, Jesus Christ became agape-love and obtained all the fullness of God. With this achieved, he then accomplished the single greatest joy of his entire existence. He turned to his disciples and “breathed” on them.

       In the garden of Eden, God fashioned Adam from dust and then “breathed” on him. This first breath of God planted a spirit from the Elohim into Adam’s body, and Adam became a “living soul.” A “living soul” is a feminine spirit from God, dwelling in a body of flesh. And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

       Now the resurrected Jesus had a room full of these “living souls” and he breathed on them a second time. This second breathing was the impartation of the “masculine” spirit of God. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost [the seed of spirit life].

       This breath of Jesus Christ was the male half of God’s life. At that moment, the feminine spirits who occupied the room “conceived.” Within them, a new embryonic spirit Son, begotten of God, was suddenly present. The disciples became spiritually pregnant. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God.

       You received your human life in two parts. Half of your life came from your mother and half came from your father. When these two cells joined they produced a new being.

       In like manner, Jesus also received his spiritual life in two parts. Jesus was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit once in Mary’s womb, and a second time at the Jordan river.

       In just this same fashion, all the Elohim-Adamites receive their spiritual life in two parts. The feminine half is given them at their birth, and the masculine half comes later on, from the resurrected Jesus Christ.

       During your time on earth you are expected to fuse with the masculine spirit of God now available from Christ Jesus. For out of His fulness as a source we all received. John 1:16 (Wuest). A seed from his resurrected spirit contains the male chromosomes required for your spiritual success. He that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. This spiritual union produces within you, a new begotten spirit being, a Son of God. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.

       This newly conceived Son is not human-- it is the literal offspring of God himself. They were not begotten from blood, nor from natural desire, nor yet from the design of man; but from God Himself. John 1:13 (Fenton). This spirit Son is then matured inside your Adamic body, through the trials and tribulations of earth. And why did God make you two one? Because He sought a godly offspring from your union. Malachi 2:15 (Amplified).

 

 

 

 

 

       Everyone knows that Jesus died to forgive your sins. But this forgiveness is only achieved as you take a seed from his resurrected life and bring it to maturity. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

       You are not to remain a washed, forgiven Adamite forever. You are to become a new sinless being, begotten of God. As you become a new Son of God your sins are not only forgiven, but made nonexistent. The sins of your flesh remain with your flesh and will die with your flesh. But when your spirit is born of God you become a new creature, a new spirit being that has never sinned. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

       Along with the seed of life, Jesus transferred to his brothers an awesome spiritual power that had previously belonged to God alone. This single supernatural power is the only tool that you require to bring your new spirit Son to maturity. This first power of Christ given unto mortals, is the power of forgiveness. Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.

       The exquisite power of forgiveness produces the spiritual energy required for sustained spirit growth. As you unconditionally forgive sin against you, your carnal mind dies. This is the crucifixion of your carnality. The death and decay of this loathsome adversary then becomes the mulch that feeds your new spirit man. The embryonic Son of God that pulses inside you will grow, only as your carnality is killed.

       Forgiveness is not a trait of the carnal. It is a power given only to God and his Sons. Forgiveness is agape-love made visible, and these two are the keys to the Kingdom of Sonship in you. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

       After his resurrection, Jesus Christ comforted and strengthened his newly conceived brothers. To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.

       Just prior to his departure, Jesus instructed his disciples to wait for the Holy Spirit. But wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. With these final words Jesus Christ concluded his earthly pilgrimage, and stepped out of the created realm. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

       Jesus had victoriously achieved his own perfection. He came to earth as a feminine spirit of Elohim, and left with all the fullness of God. And all this accomplishment he left behind in the seeds of spirit life planted into his Elohim-Adamite brothers. Jesus Christ magnificently finished all that his Father sent him to do. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. The next time he visits planet earth in bodily form, he will no more be a maturing spirit, but will manifest the astonishing galactic ministry of a spiritually begotten Son of God.

       After Jesus’ ascension the disciples waited just ten more days, when suddenly the Holy Spirit fell upon them like rain. Suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

       After your spiritual conception, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in you. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. The Holy Spirit is the water of God, sent to germinate your new spirit seed. After that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise. This tutor moves into your nursery, to act as personal mentor for the child of God in you. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

       His job is to encourage and educate the infant Son of God that dwells within your mortal frame. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth. This Spirit is your source of revelation and instruction. As the guide for a journey, the Holy Spirit follows a map, steering the spiritual infant within you through life’s successes and failures. Without this guide you may be all dressed up, but you are going nowhere. God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

       The Holy Spirit is a spiritual force from God, a down payment of hope, and the proof of your promised inheritance. If you have not received this earnest, you have no inheritance. Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession.

       The Holy Spirit is a personality of power, a supernatural guide sent to the heirs of salvation. As a tireless worker he arranges the circumstances of your life, to affect the purpose of God for you. His work encompasses all that enters your life, and ranges from cuddling comfort to ruthless destruction. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me.

       This word witnesses is the Greek word martus, from which comes the English word, martyr. The Holy Spirit brings you the power to become a martyr. He empowers your willing surrender unto self-sacrifice. By this you can mature the seed of life within you and become agape-love, even as Jesus Christ demonstrated. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

       When God orders a fire, the Holy Spirit lights the match. With searing blasts he will consume the dross of your carnality. His resources are limitless as he devises hammers, anvils, and a fiery forge, to temper the mettle of Christ in you. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost.

       The abiding presence of the Holy Spirit is God’s reassurance to you that all is well in the unseen realm of the spirit, even while he unravels your earthly life. If you stay spiritually healthy his work will continue in your life, until your carnality is destroyed, and your spiritual Son is birthed.

       Jesus Christ is the emergency exit from the dark realm of carnal mortality. I am the light of the world. Only through him can you depart the incomplete, corruptible existence of Adam. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. Jesus Christ poured out his life for you, in selfless agape-love. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. Now he has further arranged that you shall possess this same love as your own character.

       Jesus Christ became the distributor of God’s masculine spiritual life. If you want it, you must get it from him. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Those who obtain the life of Christ, and conceive, and bring this life to maturity, will become what Jesus Christ is. They will become the Sons of God and eventually dwell in the self-sufficiency of autonomous immortality. And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. This is the only process that can produce eternal life in you. Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.

 

       This is the account of Jesus Christ, the firstborn Son of God. These things are but hints of his boundless glory. There is no limit to the wonderful words that could be showered upon him, for his life and love now fills every facet of heaven and earth. And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written.

       Jesus Christ is the firstborn among many brethren, and you are to become one of these brethren. His life is a record of your destiny. You too shall one day be reborn to become what he is. Like him, you too shall be filled with all the fullness of God, according to his own word. To know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ

       Paul lay in a heap and peered into the brilliant light. As the reality of this impossible event smashed into his consciousness, his aching heart sputtered, “Who art thou, Lord?” Instant came the response, “I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.”

       The sick feeling in Paul’s stomach got worse, and his life was suddenly seized by the revelation of Jesus Christ. How is it that the son of an earth-woman, became the Son of God? This revelation is the ultimate adventure ever to enter the mind of mortals. Its discovery is an unending proposition, a one-way journey to the celestial realm.

       His Hebrew name was Yahshua, which means “Yahweh is Salvation.” The New Testament writers transliterated this name, letter-for-letter into Greek and called him “Iesous.” And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS (Iesous): for he shall save his people from their sins. The numerical value of Iesous is 888, which signifies complete resurrection. Thus the salvation of Yahweh is Jesus, and he portends the complete resurrection of man.

       But still, both Jesus and Yahshua are only human, earthly names. These names incorporate the humiliation associated with being Adamic. Thus his disciples and friends never addressed Jesus by his first name. They always called him “Master” or “Teacher.” Only demons irreverently called him “Jesus” or “Yahshua” to his face. In the epistles of James, Peter, John, and Jude, the personal name Jesus is always found along with the title, Lord or Christ, it is never once found alone. In all the writings of Paul, Jesus is found alone just thirteen times.

       In any regard, the human names for Jesus Christ are only phonetic handles for mortals. By these, the minds of silly men malign and prod the glorified Son, thinking to invoke his power by speaking with tongue and larynx.

       But any names that can be uttered in human language convey only the pathetic pittance of human thought, and circumscribe but the tiniest portion of the grandeur that Jesus Christ is. No earthly name can hope to encompass all the majestic deity of God or his Son. Accordingly, Jesus Christ long ago discarded all these human labels and even now he has a new name, which better suits his estate as King of Kings. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

       The man Christ Jesus was not the nauseating wimp currently depicted by Organized Christianity. He was a man of power, fire, purpose, and intensity. He was ruled by a pervading sense of destiny. His speech was biting and his actions void of any feigned emotion. O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things?

       Jesus was confrontational and harshly intolerant of religious arrogance. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres. With incisive severity he dispatched the presumptuous. And no man was able to answer him a word. He was impatient with human weakness. O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? His manners were considered rude by the pompously self-indulged. One of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so? To them his methods appeared unacceptably crude. He spat on the ground.

       Jesus Christ knew all men, and didn’t like some. Ye are of your father the devil. To the misguided he was fiercely aggressive. When he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple.This same zealous devotion he demands from his followers. Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

       Jesus nurtured and protected his friends. He took them, and went aside privately into a desert. He was compassionate to those who sensed his spirit. Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick. The unassuming people loved him. The common people heard him gladly. He specially sought out some to receive his bounty. And when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? But others he ignored, even when they asked for his help. But he answered her not a word.

       Jesus walked through this world without regard for human constraints. They need not depart; give ye them to eat. He cared nothing for earthly wealth. To day I must abide at thy house. He boldly displayed his control of the heavens. Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea. Yet he chose his own destruction, according to the wisdom of his Father. Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

       Jesus Christ was a very private person. He longed for the solitude of fellowship with the only other being in the universe who could understand him. He went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. He was secretive about his plans. See thou say nothing to any man. He spoke in riddles, so people would not understand. And without a parable spake he not unto them. He never told all he knew. Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things. Though he ministered to the multitudes, he never intended to convert them. He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. He kept his secrets close, and guarded them as a precious prize. And when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

       Jesus was not an idle pacifist milquetoast, as today’s hirelings would have you believe. He was the glorious firstborn Son of God. He accomplished his tasks with the intensity of a professional warrior. His life was an ardent storm, a bold and efficient drive to complete the secret workings of God.

       Jesus Christ today, is the literal offspring of God. Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. And as God said in the garden of Eden, everything brings forth after its own kind. Thus a child and parent are extremely similar, and yet they are two independent beings. So also, Jesus Christ and his Father are nearly identical, but they are two separate beings. They are two different containers, each possessing the same immortality, love, wisdom, and power. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.

       Jesus and his Father are the same in quantity and quality. I and my Father are one. But they are different packages, with distinct personalities. Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the firstborn Son of the omnipotent God, and just like any parent, God is very proud of this accomplishment. This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

       In manifestation, Jesus and his Father appear to be indistinguishable. Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature. Jesus Christ claimed the same attributes that his Father possessed. But said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. Thus every aspect of Jesus Christ reveals his Father as well. He that hath seen me hath seen the Father. All that mortals can ever know of God, will be seen in his Son. No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

       Jesus Christ originated from Elohim, a living portion of God. I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world. Thus, like his Father, Jesus Christ has no beginning and no end. Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God. Both Father and Son are composed of the same eternal spirit. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me. Both Father and Son have the same power. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. They are worthy of identical veneration. That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. But these similarities do not make them the same being. Jesus Christ is not his own Father, nor is he an appendage of God. Jesus Christ is a separate, complete being, just like his Father.

       In the Old Testament, God said he was the only deity in existence. I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me. But the big news in the New Testament is that God had a baby. The New Testament is a birth announcement for the firstborn Son of God. Now there are two beings in the universe who possess immortal deity. Yahweh is the divine Father of Jesus Christ; and Jesus Christ is also divine, just like his Father. Unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever.

       Jesus and his Father are composed of the same divinity and are permanently joined by the bonds of agape-love. Their manifestations are inseparably entwined, as the light from two candles. But they are two very separate and distinct light sources. Jesus Christ has a distinct personality and existence. He is a separate, autonomous source of eternal life. Jesus Christ and his Father are individual containers with equal dimensions and contents. Only these two can share the intimacy of perfect fellowship. No man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son.

       Now, the amazing work of Jesus Christ has called you to this same destiny. You are to follow his example and become what he is. As my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. His Father is your Father. As certainly as Jesus was begotten, so shall it happen to you. I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. When God is finished with you, you will be a sovereign, self-contained source of eternal life, just like Jesus Christ. The water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

       Like Jesus, you are to become more than spirit, for even spirit is the substance of created beings. God and his Sons are not part of the created realm. Creation is their playground. Everything in the created realm is but a manifestation of their power. God and his Sons are living reactors of immortality. Each is a self-sustaining fire that creates the energy to fuel its own growth. They are the celestial purity of immortal love. To develop this character and capacity in you is the plan of God, and the purpose for your presence on planet earth. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

       The revelation of Jesus Christ is an ongoing experience. When you first meet Jesus of Nazareth you identify with his humanity. He is a supernatural God who can lift you out of your troubles.

       At this first encounter you are a “sinner” and he is your “Savior.” He is the lamb slain to forgive your sins, to take away your guilt and wash you in his blood. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? Here you establish an initial relationship, based on his great sacrifice and your desperate need. Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

       After this first meeting you are allowed to perceive the “goodness” of Jesus Christ, and your life is radically changed. Jesus becomes your “shepherd” and you join his “flock.” For I am the least of the apostles.

       As you follow after your shepherd, his revelation begins to expand. He becomes more than just a sacrifice. You fall in love with his higher qualities, his grace, his spiritual beauty. You become enraptured by his mercy and benevolence. You worship his power and abilities. Jesus Christ becomes the supply for all the missing elements in your life. You want to bask in his glory, to bathe in his splendor, to know him intimately.

       Then your relationship to Jesus Christ changes again. It comes to be based on his strength and your desire. You become his “bride” and he becomes your “bridegroom.” You dress-up and pine for your handsome prince. As a goodly husband he is the source of every wonderful thing that you crave. He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.

       At this point, Jesus Christ and his Father are typically considered to be a single entity. And if they aren’t, it seems of no large importance, and a puzzle beyond the purview of mortals. You believe that those who dally in these unknowable mysteries are looking for trouble.

       But you also feel a tinge of parental exasperation, a hint of snobbish disdain for those “new” Christians who know him only as “Savior,” for you have moved beyond that first stage. To you, Jesus Christ has become a proven and faithful companion, the provider of your bounteous feast, and that is all that matters.

       But if you are a good wife, soon the inevitable happens. After a time with your husband, you become spiritually pregnant. How fair is thy love, my sister, my spouse!

       The first portent of this new relationship is “morning sickness.” Suddenly your good time ends and your life takes a nauseous turn for the worse. The honeymoon is over. Affliction arises, you throw up, you’re confused, and then your belly swells.

       More and more the new child within you begins to dominate your life. Your priorities change. Your goals and values are reassessed. You cannot do the things that you had previously enjoyed. Jesus Christ is there supporting all along, but you are the one who is sick. At times the experience becomes overwhelming, and Jesus Christ becomes little more than the perpetrator who did this to you.

       Your friends that are not pregnant cannot relate to the events of your life. They determine you must be in error. They run with sleek figures while you groan in stretch pants. You are too hot, you are getting kicked, your life is distended, you cry out to God, you weep on the floor, your misery increases, and then, suddenly, it happens.

       Abruptly you perceive the existence of a divine conception. You finally realize that the masculine spirit of God has united with your feminine spirit. You are spiritually pregnant, and are bringing forth a new creature. Within your being pulses a Son of the Living God, who is destined to inherit all that his Father possesses. When it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, to reveal his Son in me.

       Then your identity switches. No longer are you a pregnant female spirit. Instead, you identify with the child growing within you, a Son of God. Ye have received the Spirit of adoption [SonPlacing], whereby we cry, Abba, Father. Interest in human affairs wanes almost to nothing; your intensity burns white-hot for the day of your birth. You wish only to know as you are known, to see God as he is. And all of us, as with unveiled face, continued to behold as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor. 2 Corinthians 3:18 (Amplified).

       When you realize that you are becoming a new Son of God, then you establish a new relationship with Jesus Christ. No longer is he your husband, for now you are both Sons of your Father, and he is your older brother. He is the firstborn Son of God, and you will be his sibling. Though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

       Your new hope for perfection becomes tied to the painful processings of earth, as the gestation process matures your spirit. I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children.

       Then you begin to enter the fellowship of conquerors, for you, your brother, and your Father, are becoming inseparably joined into a singular character, in the bonds of agape-love. Above all these things put on charity (agape), which is the bond of perfectness. You begin to glimpse a Begotten Realm, adorned in dazzling splendor. And ultimately, entering that new state of begotten life, there you will dwell forever. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

The Ministry of Jesus Christ

       Jesus went one day to the synagogue in Nazareth. And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day. Jesus began to read from Isaiah 61. But after reading verse one, and only half of verse two, he closed the book and sat down. The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD. His earthly mission was composed entirely of these few words. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

       Jesus quit in the middle of verse two, because the second half of that verse was to be accomplished much later, by the glorified Jesus Christ and his firstborn brothers. This, and on through verse nine, are the province of the second coming of Christ. This is the soon coming “ministry” of Jesus and the corporate Christ.

       Consider Isaiah 61:2.5 - 9. At the second coming of Jesus, when all the firstborn Sons are manifest, vengeance against evil and comfort for the righteous will be the first order of business. ... the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn. Only the Sons of God can rend the black veil that now encircles the earth. These magnificent beings will be the answer to every problem. To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

       After they have cleaned up the earth and terminated evil, the Sons will begin a heavenly restoration. And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. As Melchisedec priests they will correct every physical and spiritual error. Ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God.

       This group will shimmer in celestial glory, the light of life will roll off them in waves. Ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. They will inherit the double portion blessing, reserved for the firstborn of Israel. For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.

       These Sons of God are the living New Covenant, the essence of God’s heart. For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. They are the forsaken but fortunate, the chosen and proven, the offscouring of earth who become the offspring of God. Their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed. Isaiah 61:2-9.

       At the second coming of Jesus, he will first spark the resurrection of his firstborn brothers. These Sons will gather to form the governing council of the universe, called the “Body of Christ.” Then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds. Jesus will take his rightful place at the helm of this invincible cartel. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

       All these firstborn Sons will have been birthed in the image of their Father. These are fantastic beings. They are fierce, untamed stoics, intensely focused, conquering warriors who love their job and rule the created realms with all the power of God. And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.

       As an invading army of Kings they shall rise to subdue the earth. These Sons are the celestial elite, trained and empowered for battle. In tumult and conflict, their truth and light will cover the land. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. No device in creation shall deter this unstoppable army. They will crush the ignorance of carnality, and abolish the Satanic enslavement of man. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses.

       The glorified Sons of God will fear not to slay, for they are also the resurrection. Out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. Their actions are wisdom, their weapons are truth, and their intentions are the development of agape-love. They will dispense knowledge as a clear stream, to bring forth judgment unto victory. He hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

       All the worlds of creation will become the personal possession of the firstborn Sons of God. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Then shall mortal man know peace in a new and brilliant tranquillity, for righteousness will rule in their midst. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end. All the creation shall rest, and this divine serenity will continue unmolested for one thousand years. The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

       At the first resurrection, all the firstborn Sons of God will step into magnificent permanence, and find themselves clothed with the glory of stellar power. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. Their hearts will whirl with the aria of agape-love. They sung as it were a new song before the throne. This is the divine plan of God, and its implementation is the legacy, ministry, and destiny of Jesus Christ.
