Chapter 11: The Death of Jesus Christ
Why did Jesus Christ have to die? Certainly not to forgive your sins, for before his crucifixion he forgave sin. Neither was it for your resurrection, for before his cross he could raise the dead. So why was the cross really necessary?
Jesus Christ lived in perfect compliance to the divine will. Then he was smitten of God, made subject to Satan, and brutally murdered. Innocent obedience was destroyed by Satanic lawlessness. Was this the wisdom of God? What was God thinking to afflict his faithful Son in this manner? What was actually accomplished through this bewildering anomaly?
only one purpose for the cross of Jesus Christ. That purpose is to
make possible the birth of the Sons of God. This single purpose is the
distillation of all God’s thoughts concerning man. In the cross of
Jesus Christ, God explains his motives and methods. To comprehend the
cross is to discern the secret plan of God and to grasp the revelation
of your own destiny. What is man, that thou
art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? Thou
madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with
glory and honour.
The divine wisdom of the cross can be viewed from many different perspectives, but these all share the common theme of Sonship. Jesus Christ died:
1. To complete his own maturity.
2. For the remission of sin.
3. So that Israel could remarry.
4. To fulfill the Old Testament and establish a new law.
5. To establish a new priesthood.
6. To establish the New Covenant.
7. To give you spiritual life.
Jesus Christ had to die on the cross, first and foremost, for himself. The experience of earthly travail is the gestation process for all the Sons of God. Jesus Christ had been conceived by God, both physically and spiritually. But he still had to grow up.
It is the earthly experience of good and evil that transforms the sons of Adam into the Sons of God. Like you, Jesus needed to become an Overcomer, and to be made perfect through suffering. By his cross, Jesus Christ gained his own permanent perfection, and became the loving, limitless deity that he is today. Six aspects of his personal maturity are discussed below.
1. Jesus Gained The Knowledge Of Sin.
Just like Adam, Jesus Christ was physically made by God to be a sinless being. Not having an Adamic father, Jesus was born without the curses of Eden’s failure. Like Adam prior to the fall, Jesus was raised in sinless peace and obedience. He was filled with wisdom and goodness, and without guile. His mind was not at enmity against God. His spirit was not a slave to his physical desires. Jesus was the restoration of Edenic perfection.
But the knowledge of good and evil is required for every Son of God; this is the purpose for the earthly experience. Thus Jesus needed to be betrayed, just as Adam was. In the garden of Eden, Adam was betrayed and fell into sin. So also, in the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus was betrayed and fell into sin. In Gethsemane, Jesus took upon himself all the sins of mankind. He accomplished this feat by willingly accepting the curses of Eden. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
knowledge of good and evil originated in the mind of God, and Jesus
required this personal knowledge for his own perfecting. And
the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know
good and evil. Jesus needed to learn the ravages of sin, as
certainly as you need to learn the excellence of righteousness. Jesus
had to be made like unto you, just as you need to be made like unto
him. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to
be made like unto his brethren.
laid upon Jesus the same Edenic curses that you were born with. And as
Jesus stated, this was to be accomplished at the end of his life. For
I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in
me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors.
When Jesus received the curses of Eden, he gained the knowledge of sin. But as the poison of Eden’s curse entered his being, he was also made worthy of death. For the wages of sin is death. Having acquired these curses in Gethsemane, Jesus Christ was dead in less than twenty four hours. His crucifixion was the payment required, for having gained the knowledge of sin. For in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
2. Jesus Learned Obedience.
in earthly travail, Jesus Christ learned obedience. I
gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off
the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting. He
willingly gave himself to pain and anguish, to prove his unalterable
fealty to his Father. Though he were a Son,
yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.
demonstrated only by yielding yourself as a servant. To
whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom
ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto
righteousness. Jesus Christ learned obedience as he yielded
himself to his Father’s superior wisdom, even to death on the cross.
To refuse his crucifixion would have been disobedience. 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?
the progenitor of trust in a relationship, and generating this trust
is a requirement for those who seek to please God. By his death on the
cross, Jesus demonstrated obedience and created an immutable bond of
trust between himself and his Father. It was this obedient suffering,
and the resultant intimacy of trust, that perfected his spirit. 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 Became Agape-Love.
died to become agape-love. Prior to his cross Jesus had wisdom and
knowledge and did miraculous works. But these are not the evidence of
agape-love. Though I have the gift of
prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though
I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not
charity (agape), I am nothing. Spiritual power and works are no
substitute for inner character, personal perfection, and the stunning
presence of agape. And though I bestow all my
goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and
have not charity (agape), it profiteth me nothing.
is the substance of God’s character. God is
love (agape). It is the essential essence of begotten spirit,
the goal of spiritual maturity, and it is fashioned individually
inside each person, by exposure to heartache, confusion, and pain.
that transforms these afflictions into agape-love is a three step
process. First you must accept these trials from God’s hand. Second,
you must crucify your own will. And third, you must forgive. By these
actions you will abandon your spirit to the wisdom of God and spark
the birth of agape in you. Love (agape) does
not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not
self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes
no account of the evil done to it, pays no attention to a suffered
wrong. 1 Corinthians 13:5 (Amplified).
needed to perfect this love within himself, and this he accomplished
at his cross. At Gethsemane, Jesus set aside his own will and took
upon himself the fallen nature of Adam. Not my
will, but thine, be done. At his trial he acknowledged that his
pain had come from the hand of his Father. Jesus
answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it
were given thee from above. At Calvary he forgave the iniquity
of sin against him. Father, forgive them; for
they know not what they do. By these he abandoned his spirit to
the wisdom of God. Father, into thy hands I
commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
formula Jesus Christ became agape-love, and procured for himself the
substance of deity. Greater love (agape) hath
no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
4. Jesus Secured His Resurrection.
died to obtain his own resurrection. It is absolutely impossible to be
resurrected from the dead, if you have never died. Thou
fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die. Death
is an essential prerequisite for resurrection. Jesus
answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three
days I will raise it up.
Christ was to become the door of resurrection for all mankind, it was
necessary that he first experience resurrection for himself. This
requirement necessitated his death. Now is
Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that
slept. Even the particular circumstances of his death were
important. For by martyrdom, Jesus obtained a more magnificent
resurrection. Others were tortured, not
accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection.
resurrection Jesus Christ entered into the fullness of Sonship. By
resurrection he became the first spiritually begotten 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.
resurrection, Jesus also obtained the resplendent excellence of an
endless life, for prior to Calvary’s cross, his life was not
endless. Knowing that Christ being raised from
the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in
that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth
resurrection Jesus Christ was empowered to fill the heavens. Now
that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the
lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that
ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things. By
resurrection, Jesus gained his own exaltation and eternal preeminence.
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him
from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly
things were achieved by his resurrection. And this resurrection was
made possible by his death on the cross.
Jesus Perfected His Divine Right To Rule.
died to perfect his divine right to rule the universe. It is only
fitting that the commander of life should begin his rise to power from
the humility of lowly creation. Jesus needed to personally experience
the confusion, emptiness, and demise of created beings. By this
personal experience in death, Jesus Christ was made worthy to take the
throne of creation. Worthy is the Lamb that
was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength,
and honour, and glory, and blessing. Had he not been slain, he
would not have been worthy. Thou art worthy to
take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain.
authority to rule the heavens is conveyed through the experience of
Adamic death. Jesus Christ was the first to complete the earthly
process that transforms the dead sons of Adam, into the living Sons of
God. We see Jesus, who was made a little lower
than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and
of rising up through every level of creation is the preparation
required for kings. By partaking of Adamic death, Jesus Christ
justified his divine right of authority and obtained the helm of
creation. For to this end Christ both died,
and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and
6. Jesus Became An Overcomer.
It was by
his cross that Jesus became an Overcomer. Overcome
is the Greek word nikao,
which means “to conquer; to carry off the victory.” By his cross,
Jesus conquered betrayal and the carnal nature of man. By his
resurrection he conquered death. As a warrior he carried off the
victory, overcoming all things in the created realm. Wherefore
he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive.
Gethsemane, Jesus had very little to overcome. He endured no great
stress in feeding the five thousand or walking on water. He was never
moved by earthly events, or threatened by any difficulty. Instead he
healed all the sick and slept through perilous storms.
was the first time that Jesus Christ ever faced a challenge, and there
he secured for himself the blessings reserved for the Overcomers.
These blessings are the essence of Godlikeness. They are the laurels
of victory, the medallions of the fullness of God. Consider Revelation
2:7 – 3:21.
him that overcometh:
1. Will I give to eat of the tree
2. Shall not be hurt of the
3. Will I give to eat of the
4. Will give him a white stone,
and in the stone a new name written.
5. Will I give power over the
6. Shall be clothed in white
7. I will not blot out his name
out of the book of life.
8. I will confess his name before
my Father, and before his angels.
9. Will I make a pillar in the
temple of my God.
10. I will write upon him the name of my God.
11. I will write upon him my new name.
12. Will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I
overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
By his cross Jesus Christ became an Overcomer. If he had been denied
this opportunity, he would never have procured these blessings for
himself. All the Sons of God are matured by the same process. For
whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world. This personal
victory to Overcomer status was required for Jesus, as certainly as it
is required for you. He that overcometh shall
inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
Crucifixion was pivotal to the maturity and perfection of Jesus Christ. By crucifixion Jesus gained the knowledge of sin, learned obedience, and became agape-love. By his cross he secured his resurrection, justified his right to rule, and became an Overcomer.
Jesus to crucifixion so that he might obtain the effulgent glory of
victory. This victory became a personal diadem for the new King of
Kings. By the death and resurrection process, Jesus Christ became the
glorious limitless deity that he is today. He
humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the
cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a
name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee
died to free you from your sins. But this does not happen the way most
first become a Christian they lead you in the sinner’s prayer. If
thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in
thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be
saved. This is because God has accepted the death of Jesus
Christ as an atonement for the sins of man.Whom
God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to
declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past.
action of the cross of Christ you are set free from the shame and the
penalty for failure- that is, you are not required to pay any
reparations for your breach of the Old Covenant. Blotting
out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was
contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.
This is the message of Salvation, based upon the death of Jesus
Christ. But this is only the first step. In
whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of
By the death
of Jesus the sins of the flesh are atoned and removed. You are then
left as a redeemed man, a clean but spiritually dead Adamite. But real
freedom from sin does not end there, for even after you are washed,
you will still continue to sin. In this state of affairs, you are much
like a pig that loves to wallow in the mud, but for the first time in
his life has been washed clean with a garden hose.
of God’s plan goes far beyond this first step. For after you are
cleansed by the blood of Jesus, you then became an acceptable
candidate for God’s spiritual life. And when you obtain this life
and bring it to maturity, you can become a new spirit being
one that has never sinned and cannot sin. But
ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name
of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
garden of Eden, Adam and Eve sinned, and as a punishment God placed a
curse on the mind and body of man. Since then, every natural man has
been born into sin. He lives a sinful life and dies a sinful being. He
cannot know faith and thus cannot please God and never will.
man has no destiny with God. He is not going to get better and better.
Your physical body and carnal mind are rotten, and always will be.
These two form a corrupt container, a training ground for your spirit.
Their end is only death, which is exactly what they deserve.
cross, Jesus Christ willingly took upon himself these curses of Eden.
Having acquired them in Gethsemane, he then took them to Calvary and
killed them. By his cross, Jesus Christ eradicated the curses of Eden
in his own life.
resurrection the spirit of Jesus Christ possessed all the genetics of
this victory. The death of Eden’s curse, and the resurrection to
life, were both contained within his spirit. Jesus then shared this
overcoming spirit with his disciples.
A tiny speck
from his spirit is like a sinless, spiritual seed, that can reproduce
all the victory of Jesus Christ in you. When this spirit seed combines
with your spirit, you become a new, living, “masculine” spirit
one that did not exist before. Being born
again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of
God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
spirit being is the offspring of God, and he is in no way related to
his Adamic container. To the contrary, this Son grows to maturity by
slaying the Adamic nature, just like Jesus did at Calvary. When this
new Son is mature, he will have grown to be a strong, perfect, sinless
Son of God, just like Jesus Christ. Therefore
if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed
away; behold, all things are become new.
This new Son
of God is the essence of pure life, and he has never sinned, just as
Jesus never sinned. He does not need forgiveness. He is not a debtor
to grace. 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. The spiritually begotten Sons of God are
immortal, sinless spirit beings. They are not debtors to anyone, ever.
These were redeemed from among men, being the
firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no
guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
By the death of Jesus Christ, God forgave your sin. But by the life of Jesus Christ you can become a new, sinless, spirit being. This is the true freedom from sin that God intends for you. 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.
Do not let
the hirelings of Nominal Christianity steal away this greater glory.
They do not understand Sonship. They would have you believe that you
are to remain a washed sinner, dwelling forever as a forgiven human.
The infinite excellence of God Almighty goes far beyond this paltry
state of affairs. Jesus Christ did not just save you from your sins.
Rather, he made it possible for you to become a new being that has
not simply having your sins forgiven. Ultimate salvation is only fully
achieved when you are literally reborn of God’s spirit, and grow to
become what he is. This is truly the remission of sin, and it was made
possible by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I
will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I
awake, with thy likeness.
Israelites were delivered from Egyptian slavery they came to the
wilderness of Sinai, and there sojourned for forty years. At that time
God revealed himself as “Yahweh,” the personal covenant God of
Israel. At Mount Sinai, Yahweh married Israel. The Levitical Law
became the marriage covenant of this union, and Israel even said “I
do.” And all the people answered together,
and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do.
married Adamic Israel, with their feminine spirits, fleshly bodies,
and carnal minds. His wedding present to them was the Levitical Law.
This law was a wonderful gift, for it is the legal indictment of the
fallen Adamic nature. At Mount Sinai, Yahweh gave Israel a law
designed to convict their carnality. For until
the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no
Levitical Law is the sentence of death for the carnal mind. There
is one that accuseth you, even Moses. It was written in hard
tablets of cold stone, and it remains today as the justification for
the execution of your carnal nature. For sin,
taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me. This
gift was a legal promise from God that carnality will one day end, and
that ultimately you will be free from carnal failure.
This promise will not be fulfilled until every person’s
fallen carnal nature is destroyed. Till heaven
and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the
law, till all be fulfilled.
Levitical Law provides the condemnation of the fallen carnal nature,
but it was not designed to carry out the sentence. The Levitical Law
was never empowered either to change the carnal nature, or to kill it.
The external rituals of the law can never put an end to human failure.
Even if you could flawlessly observe every Levitical ceremony, you
would still remain a sinner and spiritually dead. Therefore
by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his
The Law does
not contain spiritual life, and it cannot spark the conception
necessary to produce the Sons of God. If there
had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness
should have been by the law. The Law thus proved to be only the
death half of God’s plan, and after receiving it, Israel remained
unchanged. They found out they were sinners, but they had neither the
power to destroy their carnality nor the ability to produce Sonship
within themselves. The Levitical Law stood as a sentinel over this
stalemate for 1,400 years, as the promise of a future, spiritual
fulfillment. For the law having a shadow of
good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never
with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make
the comers thereunto perfect.
carnal-minded Israel was not empowered by Yahweh to keep the Law, nor
did Yahweh ever intend this. Thus Israel went off into spiritual
adultery and the ten northern tribes were subsequently divorced. My
covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the
LORD. The southern tribes of Judah and Benjamin remained
married to Yahweh, and it was through this marriage that Jesus was
supernaturally conceived as a sinless being. As a result of his
miraculous birth, he was the only man ever empowered to fulfill the
marriage contract of the Levitical Law. [He]
was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
qualified him to then receive the spiritual life of Yahweh, which was
accomplished at his baptism. As a result of this new spirit birth, the
heavens opened and Jesus was transformed into a spiritually begotten
Son of God. He was the only man ever to undergo this process under the
Old Covenant. God sent forth his Son, made of
a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law,
that we might receive the adoption [SonPlacing].
then desired to share his new begotten life with all the people of
Israel. But the ten northern tribes, being divorced, could not remarry
unless their first husband died. For the woman
which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he
liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her
husband. For this reason, the begotten Jesus Christ died in the
place of Yahweh. This was accomplished under God’s law of sacrifice,
wherein one thing may die in the place of another. Abraham
lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in
a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered
him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
death, the people of Israel were free to marry another husband. But
if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no
adulteress, though she be married to another man. This new
husband is the resurrected Jesus Christ. Being freed from her first
marriage to Yahweh, all Israel has been betrothed to the spiritual
life of Christ. And with a new husband comes also a new contract of
marriage. So, my brothers, you too in the body
of Christ have ended your relation to the law, so that you may be
married to another husband, to Him who was raised from the dead, in
order that we might bear fruit for God. Romans 7:4 (Williams).
marriage to Israel was not designed to bring forth spiritual children
it was designed to convict carnality. Thus Yahweh never exercised his
privilege to spiritually inseminate Israel, his wife. Yahweh intended
that his marriage should serve to condemn the carnal nature, and that
the marriage of his Son would be used to bring forth the offspring of
God. The resurrected Jesus Christ is the new spiritual husband for all
Israel. Wherefore then serveth the law? It was
added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the
promise was made.
did not marry physical Israel
he said his kingdom was not of this world. Instead, he married
spiritual Israel. Jesus Christ married the spirits of Elohim that
dwell inside the physical bodies of the Israelites. This new husband
and new wife are both spirit beings. These two contain the male and
female halves of God’s life. This is the spiritual union that will
produce the Sons of God. That which is born of
the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
husband has the right to impregnate a wife. By the death of Jesus
Christ, Israel was freed from her first, barren marriage. After his
resurrection, Jesus Christ married spiritual Israel and gained the
right to impregnate your feminine spirit. For
I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste
virgin to Christ.
By the death
and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the spiritual immortality of Yahweh
was passed through his Son and into your spirit. God is begetting
spiritual Sons who will be born in his own image. These Sons are
spiritually begotten of Yahweh, through his firstborn Son, Jesus
Christ. And because ye are sons, God hath sent
forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
marriage accomplishes the transfer of life. This new union produces a
cry from the heavenly nursery that announces the birth of God’s
Sons. Behold, what manner of love the Father
hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God.
marriage to Yahweh was secured by the Levitical Law, your marriage to
Christ was secured by the law of agape-love. By his sacrifice, Jesus
Christ perfected agape-love in himself. When you receive his spirit
life, it will spark the production of this love in you. Husbands,
love (agapao) your wives, even as Christ also loved (agapao) the
church, and gave himself for it.
is the consummation of self-sacrifice, it is measured in human tears.
It is made visible as you encounter betrayal and say “thy will be
done.” It is the end of personal desire, the annihilation of your
own selfishness and self-preservation. Only agape-love being perfected
in you possesses the power to crucify your carnal mind, and to kill
the curses of Eden, even as demonstrated by Jesus Christ.
Thus by your
physical marriage to Yahweh your carnality was indicted. By your
spirit marriage to Christ you will conceive to bring forth a new
spirit being. This new spirit Son of God will carry out the sentence
of the Levitical Law against your carnality. Only this new Son is
empowered to kill your fallen Adamic nature and to eradicate the
curses of Eden in your life. It is this second marriage, to Christ,
that accomplishes the fulfillment of every promise of God. And this
was made possible by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the
law, then Christ is dead in vain.
The Law and
the Prophets are physical allegories of spiritual promises. Who
serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was
admonished of God.They are temporary,
physical models of God’s spiritual plan. They are patterns of the
holy, and not the holy things themselves. See,
saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to
thee in the mount.
intended that these symbolic models should inherit eternity. Moses
verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of
those things which were to be spoken after. God intended that
the Law and the Prophets should come to an end, as the promises of the
Old Testament are fulfilled by immortal spirit beings. Wherefore
the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ.
years the Law and the Prophets described the coming of Jesus Christ.
The entire Old Testament is like a telescope that focused on the
distant arrival of this firstborn Son. God,
who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the
fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his
Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things.
is the essence of God’s plan, the capstone of his purpose, the first
example of his intent. These are the words
which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must
be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the
prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Jesus Christ is the
avenue of completion for every promise that God has ever spoken unto
man. The propagation of his resurrected spirit life is the fulfillment
of both the Old and New Testaments. For all
the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of
God by us.
In the Old
Testament, God instituted seven feasts to reveal his plan for man.
Jesus Christ fulfilled them all. Jesus is the unspotted Passover lamb
of redemption. The precious blood of Christ,
as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. He is the
Unleavened Bread of truth.Therefore let us
keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice
and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. He
is the firstfruits of the Harvest, waved before God. Jesus
saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father:
but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and
your Father. He is the double-portion bread of Pentecost,
ground to powder, mixed with leaven, and baked in a fire. For
the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life
unto the world.
is the proclamation of Trumpets, declaring the glad message of eternal
life. I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day,
and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, saying, I am Alpha
and Omega. He is the sacrifice of Atonement, the forgiveness of
sin. This man, after he had offered one
sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God. He
is the repose of Tabernacles, providing a way to the dwellingplace of
a Begotten Son. Jesus said unto her, I am the
resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were
dead, yet shall he live.
Testament feasts represent a process that leads from Adamic death to
spiritual life. Jesus Christ was the first to complete this process.
The physical death of Jesus Christ fulfilled the feasts, and his
resurrected life now contains all the spiritual genetics of this
victory. When you acquire his life, it will reproduce this same
victory in you. That the righteousness of the
law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after
conceive to the resurrected life of Christ, your spirit becomes a new
Son of the Living God. This new spirit Son will then turn away from
every physical liturgy of the Old Testament. How
much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit
offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead
works to serve the living God?
of the Old Testament apply only to mortals. When you can identify with
the new Son of God growing within you, you are suddenly no longer
subject to any Old Testament observance. For
Christ is the end of the Law, the limit at which it ceases to be, for
the Law leads up to Him Who is the fulfillment of its types, and in
Him the purpose which it was designed to accomplish, is fulfilled.
Romans 10:4 (Amplified).
controls of the Old Testament were intended only for humans. The
spirit Sons of God are not subject to any external controls. If
ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where
Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
mean that the Sons of God are lawless? No. These spirit beings are the
throbbing essence of divine law. But they are not governed externally.
They are governed only internally, by a new law that mortals cannot
comprehend. This new law was instituted by the sacrifice of Jesus
Christ. It is the law of agape-love. For all
the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love (agapao)

is the ceaseless, selfless giving of lovingkindness, even in the face
of evil. The acquisition of this character as your own, is the
singular promise of the Old Testament.
sounds superficial or trite, then you don’t know what agape is.
Agape is not human, it is not the “phileo” love of the carnal
mind. Agape is not merely an attribute of God
it is the living essence of God and his offspring.
God is love (agape).
Agape is a
willingness to die, rather than manifest selfishness. It is the
ability to give blessings and take none for yourself. It seeks benefit
and liberty for those who seem undeserving. It is not offended or
modified by any action of man.
stare into apparent failure and see only the wisdom of God. It is the
ability to deny all the visible evidence, and to know that the love of
God has generated every nightmare. It is the power to choose the
frightening will of God above your own desires. It is the strength to
stand alone against impossible odds. The acquisition of this unearthly
love fulfills every promise that God ever made in the Law and the
Prophets. Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love
(agapao) the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And
the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love (agapao) thy neighbour as
thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
By his death
and resurrection, Jesus Christ perfected agape-love within himself. Walk
in love (agape), as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself
for us an offering and a sacrifice to God. Seeds from his
overcoming spirit were then distributed to his brothers, and they were
empowered to reproduce agape-love within themselves. Let
us love (agapao) one another: for love (agape) is of God; and every
one that loveth is born of God.
availability of this new living seed initiated a whole new contest.
The lifelong struggle for the correct observance of Levitical
ceremonies became witless futility. Any thought of righteousness
through any Old Testament ritual was abruptly abandoned. For
there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the
weakness and unprofitableness thereof.
challenge became the acquisition and maturing of the seed of immortal
agape-love. Anyone with eyes to see, vacated the Levitical Law and
made a mad-dash to obtain this seed, which is available from Christ
Jesus. The next day after John [the Baptist]
stood, and two of his disciples; and looking upon Jesus as he walked,
he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And the two disciples heard him
speak, and they followed Jesus.
is the new life and law of Christ. A new
commandment I give unto you, That ye love (agapao) one another; as I
have loved you. This law supersedes and annuls the Levitical
Law. To love (agapao) him with all the heart,
and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all
the strength, and to love (agapao) his neighbour as himself, is more
than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. Those people who
obtain this immortal love, and bring it to maturity, will fulfill the
Old Testament. Love (agape) worketh no ill to
his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
In the Old
Testament, the Ark of the Covenant symbolized the Sons of God. The Ark
was a wooden box, covered inside and out with gold. So also, the Sons
of God have experienced humanity (wood), but will be completely
covered with divinity (gold). The Ark resided in the inner sanctum of
God’s tabernacle, in the Most Holy Place. So also, the Sons of God
reside at the center of God’s wisdom, for they are the culmination
of his plan.
Ark was the law of God, the Ten Commandments. So also, inside the Sons
of God is the new, unbroken law of agape-love. This love is
demonstrated by self-sacrifice, altruism, giving, forgiveness,
self-denial, and “Thy will be done.” It can only be found growing
within the heart of an immortal being. This is the only law that
governs God and his offspring. Internal, permanent possession of this
character is the fulfillment of everything in the Old Testament. I
delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
There is no physical being that can fulfill the Levitical Law. This
law can only be fulfilled by a spirit Son of God, manifesting the
internal law of agape-love. Wherefore if ye be
dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though
living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, (touch not, taste
not, handle not, which all are to perish with the using), after the
commandments and doctrines of men?
There is no physical being that can fulfill the Levitical Law. This

The physical requirements of the Levitical Law were intended only for unregenerate mortals. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: which are a shadow of things to come. These shadowy ceremonies have absolutely no authority over a spiritually begotten Son of God. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. The entire Levitical system has now been superseded by the living reality of the Sons of God. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
Spiritual perfection cannot be obtained through the Levitical Law. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Justification does not come by the Law. But ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. Mercy does not come through the Law. He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses. Faith is not found in the Law. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Life is not available through the Law. The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Righteousness is not found in the Law. Now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested. All these things come only by a transformation of character not by any physical or external ritual. The good LORD pardon every one that prepareth his heart to seek God, the LORD God of his fathers, though he be not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary.
maturity cannot come by eating sacraments, keeping feasts, or speaking
Hebrew. Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put
a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor
we were able to bear? Continued trust and reliance on Levitical
rituals leaves you only a mortal, a despiser of truth, an unbeliever
destined to perish. By him [Jesus Christ] all
that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be
justified by the law of Moses. Beware therefore, lest that come upon
you, which is spoken of in the prophets; Behold, ye despisers, and
wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye
shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.
On the Mount
of Transfiguration, Jesus spoke with Moses and Elijah (the Law and the
Prophets). There appeared unto them Elias with
Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. But when the presence
of God overshadowed them, the Law and the Prophets vanished. Suddenly,
when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus
only. Only the singular glory of Jesus Christ remained. There
was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud,
saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
life-stream of God is available only through Jesus Christ. All things
offered in the Levitical Law are perfected and fulfilled when you
obtain this life and bring it to maturity. Think
not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come
to destroy, but to fulfil.
resurrected life Jesus Christ made available all the blessings ever
promised in the Law and the Prophets. When you are begotten of this
life, you depart the mortal realm and the Old Testament is fulfilled
in you. Search the scriptures; for in them ye
think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
the Levitical Law, the Prophets, and even the Ten Commandments, were
quintessentially distilled into a living spirit seed by the death and
resurrection of Jesus Christ. When you acquire this seed, your spirit
can bring forth a begotten being who is governed only internally by
the new law of agape-love. This new spirit Son, and his love, are the
fulfillment of the Old Testament. For the law
made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the
which we draw nigh unto God.
came out of Egypt, God intended to take the firstborn of each tribe
for his personal possession, to become his priests. But as it
happened, God took the whole tribe of Levi instead, as a substitute. Behold,
I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of
all the firstborn that openeth the matrix among the children of
Israel: therefore the Levites shall be mine. These natural men
became the Levitical priesthood and received no natural inheritance. Wherefore
Levi hath no part nor inheritance with his brethren.
Levitical priesthood was ordained for the guardianship of spiritually
dead humans. This system was designed to control the carnal desires of
physical man. Knowing this, that the law is
not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient.
Levitical ceremonies were incapable of changing a man in any way.
Neither the priests, nor those they ministered to, were transformed
into anything. The Levitical system was an endless loop that killed
animals, not carnal minds. Which was a figure
for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and
sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as
pertaining to the conscience. The Levitical priesthood was only
a physical and transitory first step in God’s plan to bring forth
begotten Sons. Which stood only in meats and
drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them
until the time of reformation.
Levitical priesthood was a temporary surrogate
it actually displaced the true firstborn of Israel and their
inheritance. The Levites were glorious for a time, but no longer.
Their physical rituals and ceremonies have nothing whatever to do with
the spirit Sons of God. If therefore
perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people
received the law,) what further need was there that another priest
should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after
the order of Aaron?
death, Jesus Christ terminated the Levitical priesthood and
deactivated the tabernacle. And the veil of
the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.He
was the final sacrifice of the Levitical order. Who
needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first
for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once,
when he offered up himself.
resurrection, Jesus Christ became the firstborn Son of God and
established a new priesthood, the Melchisedec order. So
also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he
that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee. As
he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the
order of Melchisedec. The Melchisedec priesthood is a new order
of begotten beings, and Jesus Christ is the high priest. We
have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne
of the Majesty in the heavens.
At the last
supper, Jesus offered his disciples only bread and wine. These are the
two symbols of the Melchisedec priesthood. Melchizedek
king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of
the most high God. By his death and resurrection, Jesus Christ
terminated the ineffectual Levitical priesthood, and replaced it with
the surpassing glory of the Melchisedec order. For
if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the
ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
Melchisedec priests will be the resurrected Sons of God. For
the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of
the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son. These
priests are not human, they are heavenly beings, the offspring of God
himself. After the similitude of Melchisedec
there ariseth another priest, Who is made, not after the law of a
carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
Melchisedec priests are the genetic reproduction of God. They are born
from his spiritual chromosomes. They have no beginning of days and no
end of life. Without father, without mother,
without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life;
but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.
Melchisedec priesthood is a spiritual state of being that exceeds
eternity in both directions. It is not possible to reckon the
genealogy of a Melchisedec priest, for they have the genealogy of God.
For this reason all the genealogies in the Bible stop at Jesus Christ.
He whose descent is not counted from them [the
Levitical priests], received tithes of Abraham.
Melchisedec priesthood also comes with a glorious double portion
inheritance for the firstborn Sons of God. Recall that the Levitical
order skipped the firstborn, took a singular tribe, and had no
inheritance. But the Melchisedec priesthood will restore all the
inheritance of God to the true firstborn of Israel.
firstborn are the Sons of God, and they will receive an inheritance of
permanent perfection. An inheritance
incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in
heaven for you. The Melchisedec priests inherit all the wisdom,
splendor, and power of their Father. When compared to any standard,
they can never be found to lack. They will become the new source of
divine benevolence to the created realm. Wherefore
thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of
God through Christ.
of God, the Melchisedec priests are not subject to any form of
external control. They are not governed by the Levitical Law. If
ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. They are
controlled only internally, by the new law of agape-love. Those who
strive to fulfill the Levitical Law can only hope to become Levitical
priests. But those who seek to fulfill the new law of agape-love will
enter into the immortal order of Melchisedec.
For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change
also of the law.
The Melchisedec priesthood is a new, spiritual state of being, and the
only law there is the perpetual perfection of radiant agape. The
Melchisedec priests are born into this new character and governed by
its ever present victory. All things are
lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful
for me, but all things edify not. These priests dwell in the
form of God and along with God. They are personally subject to
nothing, save their own whim. Against such
there is no law.
Melchisedec priests are the true firstborn of Israel. They are the
sons of men, who become the Sons of God. They are born of agape-love,
enter the Melchisedec priesthood, and finally receive their rightful
inheritance. This new Melchisedec order was founded and made available
to you, by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
In the New
Testament, the words covenant
and testament are both
translated from the same Greek word. This word is diatheke,
which means, “the last disposition which one makes of his earthly
possessions after his death.” It also means, “to cut or divide, as
in a disposition of property, and signifies an obligation undertaken
by a single person.”
is a last will and testament. It most nearly represents the single
English word, “promise.” The essence of all Biblical covenants and
testaments is God’s promise to distribute all his wealth to man.
Bible, God established two separate systems to pass-on his character,
wisdom, life, and power. The Old Testament describes the “Old”
Covenant, in which God promised to pass-on all his possessions to physical
man. The New Testament describes the “New” Covenant, in which God
bequeathed all his wealth to spirit beings.
and “New” covenants are symbolized by Abraham’s two wives, Hagar
and Sarah. Hagar represents the Old Covenant and Sarah represents the
New. Which things are an allegory: for these
are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth
to bondage, which is Agar.
represents the Old Covenant that was instituted for physical Israel
after the Exodus from Egypt. The Old Covenant was codified by the
Levitical Law, which was enacted at Mount Sinai. This law was a system
of external controls that were made for physical men who were
spiritually “dead.” These people did not possess the spiritual
life of Christ, for it was not then available. According
to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took
them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt.
Covenant was a promise of God to convey all his wealth. If any man had
been capable of flawlessly performing the Levitical Law, it followed
that all the wealth of God would have been conveyed to him. But this
was far beyond the ability of mortals. The Levitical Law was a system
of external rituals which convicted the sinful nature of man, and
temporarily soothed his guilt. But the Levitical ceremonies were
incapable of changing a man in any way. Instead of conveying the
wealth of God, the Old Covenant merely indentured all men to physical
liturgies that would have to be continued for eternity, and no one
would ever win the prize.
Hagar was an
Egyptian servant, a gift from Pharaoh to Abraham, and she became Sarah’s
handmaid. As time passed, Abraham began to doubt God’s ability to
bring forth a son from Sarah. So Abraham married Hagar, and together
they had a son named Ishmael.
the product of human reasoning. He is the archetype of fear, doubt,
and disbelief. He was conceived when Abraham’s faith failed and he
tried to bring forth the child of promise using his own physical
strength. For it is written, that Abraham had
two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
represents the physical man and the illusion of his glory. He was
conceived in failure. He is a faithless creature, a captive of carnal
thinking who despises the wisdom of God. And
Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto
Abraham, mocking. His ways are enmity to God. He
will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every
man's hand against him. He is a tormenting terror, a vexation
to your spirit. He that was born after the
flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is
Ishmael received no inheritance. Instead, God commanded Abraham to
send them away. So also, the Old Covenant and your physical man
inherit nothing from God. Now this I say,
brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;
neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. While physical
men may enjoy the temporal blessings of God, they receive no
permanent, spiritual inheritance. For if the
inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it
to Abraham by promise.
true love was Sarah, and together they eventually had a son named
Isaac. Isaac was born when Abraham and Sarah were very old and
decrepit. Their physical strength had failed. They had long since
ceased to be capable of producing a natural child. And
being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when
he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara's
womb. Isaac was miraculously conceived by God. He was born by
God’s promise and he inherited all of Abraham’s wealth. And
God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt
call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an
everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.
represents the New Covenant, made with your spirit. Behold,
the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with
the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. The New
Covenant is codified in the internal law of agape-love. Agape is not
external, it is a divine substance, planted into the hearts of spirit
beings. There it grows and radiates outward, becoming visible in
forgiveness and self-sacrifice. Bear ye one
another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. Agape does
not exist in mortals. This secret power is the only law that governs
immortal beings. For all the law is fulfilled
in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love (agapao) thy neighbour as
your spirit is God’s true love. Together, his spirit and your spirit
will produce a Son of God, by a miraculous conception. Therefore
you are sons, God having sent the spirit of His own son into your
hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Galatians 4:6 (Fenton).
represents a spiritually begotten Son of God in you. This Son is the
child of promise and he will inherit all God’s wealth. Now
we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. The
Sons of God are the living offspring of the New Covenant.
It is not the children of the body of Abraham who are made God’s
children, but it is the offspring to whom the promise applies that
shall be counted as Abraham’s true descendants. Romans 9:8
being husband and wife, Abraham and Sarah were also half brother and
sister. They were both born from the same father. When Abraham and
Sarah were reunited, Isaac was born.
relationship is an allegory of spirit birth. For your human spirit and
Jesus Christ are also brother and sister. They both came from the same
Father. Like Sarah, your spirit possesses the feminine half of God’s
life. Like Abraham, the resurrected Jesus Christ possesses the
masculine half of God’s life. When your spirit combines with the
spirit of Jesus Christ, a new spirit child is conceived. This child is
a Son of God.
The Sons of God will come to possess all their Father’s character,
power, and life, for they are born of his spiritual DNA. For
in Isaac shall thy seed be called. The wisdom of God will flow
from them like torrential rain. They are perfect spirit beings who
will command galaxies. They are not subject to any external law. They
will be governed only by the internal law of agape-love. This is the
promise of the New Covenant. For this is the
covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days,
saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in
Both the Old Covenant
(physical) and the New Covenant (spirit) were contracts made with God
to arrange for the transfer of his wealth. Like any business deal,
these contracts had to be ratified before taking effect. In this case,
both covenants were ratified by sacrifice.The Old Covenant was
established nationally, and was ratified by blood obtained from the
sacrifice of unwilling animals. The New Covenant is established
individually, and was first instituted by the willing sacrifice of
When you partook of the fallen Adamic nature at your physical birth, you gained the carnal mind and became a sinner. You gained a mind that is enmity to God. This was a breach of contract under the Old Covenant and penalties began to accrue. Jesus died to forgive these penalties. His death was accepted as payment for the reparations due under the old contract.
But when a business contract is breached and the requisite reparations are forgiven, the contract is rendered void. No further obligation to perform under the contract, by either party, is then expected or anticipated.
when you accept forgiveness through the death of Jesus Christ, the
Levitical Covenant for you is canceled. You are then left without a
contract with God. Never again can you hope to attain perfection by
performance of the deeds of the Levitical Law, because for you, the
contract is no longer in effect. You cannot accept the blood of Jesus
Christ and then think to establish your righteousness by keeping the
feasts, eating matzos, growing a beard, or any other physical ritual. In
that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that
which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
In those early days, when you first become a Christian, you have no contract with God. That is to say, for you the Old Covenant is nullified and the New Covenant though available, is not yet ratified. As the life of Christ begins to mature within you, you must enter into this new contract with your Heavenly Father. You must ratify the New Covenant within your own spirit. This is accomplished only individually, by the death of each testator. For where a testament [contract] is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
cross, Jesus Christ set aside every desire for self-preservation and
surrendered to his Father’s will
even to his own murder. By his sacrificial blood he canceled the Old
Covenant. By his willing surrender he established the New. The New
Covenant, which must be made with your spirit, is “willing surrender
unto self-sacrifice.” Then said he, Lo, I
come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may
establish the second.

successful overcoming was encoded into his spiritual DNA. A seed from
his spirit could then reproduce the New Covenant in you. Who
was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our

your spirit becomes a newly conceived Son of God. During the gestation
of this new Son, you will be called upon to ratify the same New
Covenant within yourself, just as Jesus Christ demonstrated. For
this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of
death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the
first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of
of the New Covenant must be accomplished individually in each person,
and it takes place in two steps. First you must cast out the Old
Covenant, Hagar and Ishmael. The Levitical Law and your physical glory
cannot lift you one-half inch out of Adamic death. Christ
is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the
abandon every natural glory and physical ritual of mortal man.
Glorifying your prestige, physical abilities, genealogy, religious
ceremonies, or anything on planet earth, is vain and unprofitable. It
is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing. Your
strengths and the best of all you think you possess must be sent away.
All these things are superseded when you become a partaker of the life
of Jesus Christ. Therefore if any man be in
Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all
things are become new.
step is the sacrifice of Isaac. Your Adamic failings are not an
acceptable sacrifice for the purity of God’s plan. Only the
perfection of Isaac is an acceptable sacrifice. Only his testing unto
death can rend the veil and cause you to sit upon the golden throne of
God. If ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is
it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer
it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy
person? saith the LORD of hosts.
your hidden wealth. He wants to test your secret spiritual friendship
with him, your faith and trust in his superior abilities. Under the
New Covenant your spirit is first lovingly nurtured by a doting Father
your knowledge of God, your understanding and faith in him blossoms.
Then as this spirit Son reaches maturity, he is taken to a mountain
and sacrificed. And Abraham built an altar
there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid
him on the altar upon the wood.
overwhelming subjection to Satanic evil, God will cut the throat of
all you now believe, or think you know. God wants a profound spiritual
cry from the depths of your heart. He will take from you the things
that you are unable to give, and from these ashes will arise a new,
living wisdom. This new creature is a matured, tested, and resurrected
Son of God. And only he is fit to inherit the wealth of his Father. By
faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had
received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was
said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: accounting that God was
able to raise him up, even from the dead.
at Gethsemane, God will bring each of his spirit Sons to a cross of
cunning construction. There they will surrender to the pervasive
wisdom of God, in the face of Satanic attack and betrayal.
darkness all that surrounds you will collapse in apparent failure. The
best that you have produced, and all that you trusted in, even the
very gifts that God has given you, will crumple into a ruined heap. In
this enduring nightmare, you will surrender to the bewildering
sagacity of God. This is the New Covenant. It is the birth of
agape-love. It is a new contract, established by a love for your
Father that supersedes every other desire in the universe.Ye
are come unto ... Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the
blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
As your life
becomes a burnt offering, the New Covenant is ratified in you. Gather
my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by
sacrifice. The death of self-will is the only visible evidence
that the New Covenant is operating in your spirit. I
delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
of the New Covenant is the cup of Christ, which was passed to all the
disciples at the last supper. This cup represents the difficult
gestation of a spirit being. This cup is the
new testament in my blood, which is shed for you. All those who
will share in begotten glory will drink this same cup, and love not
their lives unto the death. Are ye able to
drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the
baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.
have been through the sacrifice of Isaac, there is no law that can
contain you. I mean this: The law which was
given four hundred and thirty years later could not annul the contract
which had already been ratified by God, so as to cancel the promise.
Galatians 3:17 (Williams). When you are birthed into the spirit
realm, you shall become all that God is, and inherit all that he has.
Like Jesus Christ, you will become the progenitor of laws for the
created realm. For in that he put all in
subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him.
Sons of God, operating in agape-love, are the absolute fulfillment of
both the Old and New Covenants. They sing the
song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb.
Only these spirit beings can ever accomplish this feat. And
no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four
thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

completed. Think not to say within yourselves,
We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of
these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. The goal still
remains before you, to bring forth a spirit Son. It is these remaining
steps that are now keeping you out of immortality. Brethren,
I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do,
forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto
those things which are before.
genealogies and questions of Levitical legalism will waste your
precious time, as a sidetrack to a dead end.Avoid
foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings
about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. No physical
being can fulfill the New Covenant. No part of your Adamic pedigree
will inherit anything in the spirit realm. While you remain human, a
natural man with a feminine spirit, you will inherit nothing from God.
There is no
physical activity on earth that can make you into a Son of God, and
ultimately, there is no human failing that can prevent it. From the
ashes of your carnality a Son shall one day arise in your midst. The
birth of this new being is your only path to the promised inheritance
of God. They are not all the children of
Abraham because they are by blood his descendants. No, the promise
was, “Your descendants will be called and counted through the line
of Isaac,” though Abraham had an older son. Romans 9:7 (Amplified).
celestial spiritual destiny is the promise of the New Covenant, and it
was made possible by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Prior to Jesus’ death he could forgive sin, walk on water, and preach a mighty sermon. He could feed, clothe, and heal every person on earth. He could even resurrect your physical body from the grave. But he could not give you spirit life. The ability to give life is called “puberty,” and it is a function of maturity. It cannot be bestowed by a gift.
By his death
and resurrection, Jesus Christ came to full spiritual maturity and
inherited all the power of God as a personal possession. This brought
him to spiritual “puberty.” Only then was he empowered to share a
seed from his spirit life with you. And I, if
I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
A seed from
the resurrected Christ encapsulates all the genetics of Jesus’
spiritual maturity and victory. Had Jesus not been crucified and
raised again, these seeds would not exist. But with this spiritual
seed, you can become all that he is. As many
as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even
to them that believe on his name.
According to the encyclopedia a mature seed is “dormant.” Though it may be fully developed, it cannot reproduce while it remains intact. To begin growth a seed must be placed into a favorable environment and kept moist. The water pierces the seed’s outer coat and is then absorbed into the interior. This causes the interior to swell, which breaks the seed open.
seed breaks open, oxygen becomes available to the interior. This
oxygen produces the energy required for germination. Only when a seed
is broken open, does it gain the energy it requires for reproduction.
Jesus Christ was like this seed. By his crucifixion he was broken, and thus gained the ability to reproduce his spirit life. Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains a single grain. But if it does die, it yields a great harvest. John 12:24 (Williams).
resurrection, Jesus Christ reached spiritual “puberty,” and was
empowered to share his masculine seed of spirit life. The feminine “ground”
that God designed to receive this seed, is the spirit he gave you at
your physical birth. Every Adamic man is born with a spirit from the
“Elohim” company. This was affirmed by Jesus Christ himself. I
have said, Ye are gods (Elohim); and all of you are children of the
most High. But ye shall die like men. (Psalm 82:6 and quoted by
Jesus in John 10:34).
is a Hebrew word for God
that is both plural and feminine. Being spiritually feminine, man is
born into the state of spiritual “death.” For
ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. Like a
natural woman, your spirit has the ability to reproduce life, but you
must first get a seed of life from Jesus Christ. Jesus
Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and
immortality to light.
spirit acquires this life, spiritual conception occurs. Of
his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. The new
life that is formed inside you is a spiritually begotten Son of God. Which
were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will
of man, but of God. Without this life, you will remain
spiritually dead. He that hath the Son hath
life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
of Elohim will become the Sons of God. But all the spirits of Elohim
are not the same. Just as five different women were used to produce
the thirteen sons of Israel, so also, there are different categories
of Elohim spirits.
small group of the Elohim will produce the firstborn Sons of God.
These particular individuals are the pearl that is singularly more
precious than all the other pearls that surround them. There are many
pearls, but only one group is firstborn. The
kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all
that he had, and bought it.
sold all that he had, to purchase the firstfruits of Elohim. I
pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for
they are thine. These spirits will conceive to become the
firstborn Sons of God. Come, ye blessed of my
Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of
resurrection, Jesus Christ planted the spiritual seed of life into his
Elohim brothers. Saying, I will declare thy
name unto my brethren. This transfer of spirit life was the
greatest joy he has ever known. Jesus the
author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before
him endured the cross, despising the shame.
horde their precious things, the satisfaction of spirit beings is
found in giving. Jesus desired to give all his wealth to his brothers.
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast
given me, be with me where I am. This is agape-love, a divine
substance that endures a cross to acquire a glory, only so that glory
can be given away. The glory which thou gavest
me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one. This
love is the power that binds the Sons of God into a celestial
commonwealth. And I have declared unto them
thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved
me may be in them, and I in them.
is like a master gardener, planting his seed of life into your spirit.
After these two spirit cells join, the new seedling is nurtured inside
your physical body of Adamic earth. As your Adamic nature decomposes
in affliction, the spirit Son within you is matured. This consuming of
the old is the gestation of the Sons of God, as they are loosed from
the encumbrances of mortality. When their growth is complete, they
will come to the resurrection harvest. Thrust
in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for
the harvest of the earth is ripe.
But no man
harvests a field
only the crop off the field is harvested. The field was dirt before
the crop, and it is only dirt after the crop. Your natural life and
all its glory, is only a field of earth. The crop from this field is a
spiritually begotten Son of God, that grows with its roots in your
Adamic decay. It is sown in weakness; it is
raised in power. It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual
Sons of God are an entirely new race of spirit beings. Jesus Christ
died to become the leader of this new order. 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. His death and resurrection will bring forth the
firstborn Sons of God. Behold I and the
children which God hath given me.
will soon be resurrected into a new state of being in the Begotten
Realm. A great people and a strong; there hath
not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it. The
universe will shriek with delight as they pierce the veil and seize
the light of life. The earth shall quake
before them; the heavens shall tremble. The firstborn Sons of
God will burst upon creation as a thundering multitude of newborn
stars. The created realms will stagger in awe. Whensoever
he shall come, to be made all-glorious in his saints, and to be
marvelled at in all who believed. 2 Thessalonians 1:10 (Emphasized).
of divine, firstborn Sons, will become the many membered corporate
Body of Christ. They will establish a new universal government upon
the earth, which will extend to the farthest reaches of creation.
At the head
of this ruling counsel will sit forever, Jesus Christ. He was the
first of the Elohim company to pass completely through the earthly
process, and to become a spiritually begotten Son of God. He is the
first to have completed the process to Sonship. By his death and
resurrection he became the first of the Firstborn Sons, and made
Sonship a tangible reality for you. Jesus
Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the
dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved
us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and hath made us
kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and
dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
