The body of Christ
should be the most prominent, powerful, authoritative body of people
on the planet, but it is not. Why? Jesus paved the way, did it all for us. He defeated the enemy at the cross conquering death, hell and the grave
. He set all of mankind free
that would make the choice to die into His death at baptism
and be born again through His resurrection, yet we continue to die. Why? All sins resulting in sickness, disease and infirmity were borne by the stripes of Christ
for mankind yet we still sin, get sick, experience terrible infirmity. Why? Even though Adam and Eve sold their souls to Satan
, losing everything as they chose his knowledge, mentally swallowed his advice
, and ignored the law of God
, Jesus lovingly re-purchased man
. He paid the ransom price with His own life to return them to their Creator
. Through His death He set mankind free of their captivity
to this world's master
, the world itself and its systems
, but we are still very much a part of the world and its culture
To begin with, Satan wanting to take God's place
in the eyes of man set out to alter them and all God created on earth
in effort to make them his. He changed mankind from their original perfect state by crossing angels with humanity
thus making them more suited to building a world that would honor him as king
. With man in line with his thinking, he could fulfill his desire to be like God and alter their nature to his image
. God said to separate from the world
and all pertaining to it, to not touch the unclean thing. Can we see why? Satan through altered man has however continued his plan to alter almost all of creation
. Plants, animals etc. are no longer after their own kind, but mixed and grafted, changing them from their perfect origin. Maybe this is one of the answers to the above question, why is the body of Christ so dysfunctional? A world fashioned by the knowledge and thinking of God's arch enemy
is not exactly a place Jesus would choose for His body, yet for the most part that is where they are. Although in the world He was never of the world. So why should those that claim to be His body be connected or attached in any way? Should they be bound to the world's schools harboring the enemy's knowledge
, or its banking
that breaks every law of God concerning finances? Would His body be found teaching in churches that promote false doctrines
or, remembering He is the Word of God, feed His people stale manna? Would Christ's body be affiliated in any way with the governments of man
? Especially since we know they are propelled by man's intellect driven by the mind of the enemy. The Word refers to man's governments and their military forces as the beast
! The Lord refers to the world's churches, her many religions and secret societies as Mystery Babylon
, the harlot of harlots! Christ would certainly not be in any way a part of either of them! Are we?
5 Therefore, when He came into the world
, He said
: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a body You have prepared for Me (The body of Jesus, God's Word was His sacrificial Lamb whose death would Jubilee or set free man along with all creation)
II Corinthians 5:19
19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation (this is now the job of His entire body).
12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me
, the works
that I do he
will do also
; and greater works than these he will do
, because I go to My Father (He came back at the feast of Pentecost as the Holy Spirit to dwell in man, to complete His plans to reclaim and renew all Adam and Eve lost)
Because He returned to the Father, meaning He returned to being a spirit, He became the Rock, the cornerstone of pure belief in God, that now operates through us, living stones
that together make up the new temple, a tabernacle for God
, His body. John 2:19-21 shows us what the temple of God really is.
19 Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
20 Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”
21 But He was speaking of the temple of His body. (This is not understood even now! Many are waiting for a physical temple to be reconstructed, others wait for Christ's return in one body, still others are oblivious to either one.)
I Peter 2:5 explains today's temple.
I Peter 2:5
5 you also
, as living stones
, are being built up a spiritual house (body members, New Jerusalem)
, a holy priesthood (Zion, the government of God)
, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus
I Corinthians 3:16-17 says it all.
16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. (Not a physical temple, not His original body but those that are a part of His body today!)
19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,
21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit (the building of this temple was not completed at the time Paul wrote it, nor is it finished today, but completion is certainly swiftly coming and is a huge answer to our opening questions).
27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles:
which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Now as we read from II Peter 3:8 we will see God really hasn't spent much time building this temple, that is according to His timetable!
II Peter 3:8
8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
This scripture paints an exciting picture for us today! Maybe the body is destined to at last reach maturity
! Let me explain. How long ago did the Lord conquer all things on the cross? Two thousand plus
years ago. We are now in the early morning of the third day
and once again His temple is rising! A new species of living stones
, not shaped in any way by Satan
or altered man, is emerging through those born again through the Word
. Abraham tithed 10% to Melchizedek
, a symbolic figure of Christ, to pay for this remnant of humanity, the children of promise
. You see God's promise to restore all back to perfection
made to Abraham could not be fulfilled through a people altered by the enemy
and no longer in His image
. Humanity crossed with angels as revealed in Genesis 6 are simply not as God created them. Their natures are wrong, their knowledge twisted and warped
, their vision for life in general shaped and molded by Satan's society
. Not of God! Side note: You see, God spoke, “let us make man” and His Word created Adam and Eve. He made this planet a home for them along with all the rest of creation over which they were to have dominion. They sadly disobeyed His commandments
to not touch or taste in any way the enemy and fell from His grace. Their descendants are just like them and all would be lost except, once again God speaks! He has through His Word created a new species
! Birthed through the truth revealed for this end time they matured or metamorphosed into a different kind
as they feasted on the mysteries released at God's feasts
. Today, they unite and stand as one body
, the Body of Christ!
This new creation is the predestined remnant, the ten percent seeded by Abraham
, reproduced through the Word who according to Revelation 19:13 and 16 is King of kings and Lord of lords, Creator of all things.
Revelation 19:13, 16
13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood (He paid our debts, redeemed us, He is the savior of the firstborn, the Father of the new species), and His name is called The Word of God.
16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.
3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
I Peter 1:23
23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed (Adam) but incorruptible (the last Adam), through the word of God which lives and abides forever (we must be reborn through truth, which is Jesus, the Way, Truth and Life),
16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”
When He speaks it is law. All scripture is law. They are His Word in written form.
11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain
, for the earth
shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord
as the waters cover the sea (the disbursement of this knowledge is the job of God's fivefold ministers)
Isaiah 9:6-7 speaks of this exciting time.
6 For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government (those called to the fivefold) will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (He is many manifestations, has many roles, but one God).
7 Of the increase of His government (the coming together of the fivefold) and peace (unity and harmony) there will be no end, upon the throne of David (Christ is the greater David) and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this (as we recognize His intent).
Ephesians 4:8, 11-16
8 Therefore He says: “When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men.”
11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, (why were they selected?)
12 for the equipping of the saints (the body) for the work of ministry (making sure the Christ in them is able to work), for the edifying of the body of Christ (keeping order and harmony, providing safety and peace),
13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; (When the body of Christ is matured and Jesus can live and move through this body, He will again restore, renew, heal, do all He did in the one body suit, this time earth wide!)
14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting (these will walk according to God's knowledge and not be fooled),
15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—
16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share (no pew sitters), causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
21 The remnant will return (those seeded by Abraham to Melchizedek), the remnant of Jacob (the ten percent tithe), to the Mighty God.
Galatians 3:27 and 29 shows us where this remnant
Galatians 3:27, 29
27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Hebrews 12:18, 22-29
18 For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest,
22 But you have come to Mount Zion (government) and to the city of the living God (New Jerusalem), the heavenly Jerusalem (the infrastructure of this City was formulated by God), to an innumerable company of angels (they intercede and guard the new species),
23 to the general assembly (the body members) and church of the firstborn (the church glorious) who are registered in heaven (their names are written in the book of life), to God (who dwells in His holy mountain) the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect (these walk according to their spirits who are connected to God, not their soul man connected to the world),
24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.
25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven,
(as the Spirit of God!)
26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.”
27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made (by man, through Satan's knowledge), that the things which cannot be shaken may remain (speaking of the works that have evolved through God's people who have entered His rest, ceased from their works to do His, fulfilling His plans).
28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.
29 For our God is a consuming fire.
II Corinthians 13:5
5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. (Do we walk in the end time Word?) Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you (the hope of glory)? unless indeed you are disqualified.
In summation, as we become His temple
, the new species faces life squarely from the perspective of their spirit not their soul man
. They are steadfast, mature and make decisions based on the knowledge of God
concerning all things and are therefore a convicted body of people. Out of them God's tabernacle
, His Body, is being raised! It is from them His government is coming forth
! Through them new recruits are being summoned for both government and people! Unfortunately trapped in Babylon
are many of God's anointed chosen
. The trumpets are blasting
from God's mountain
, “Come out of her, My people
!”, “separate from the unclean thing and I will be your God and you will be My people”. His warriors
chosen for a place in government, are being called “front and center”
, be filled with God's knowledge and instruction for this end time battle between heaven and hell
! Come forth as safety, shelter, and peace
for the safety of God's little ones and the advancement of God's plan for restoration
across the earth! Satan weakened the nations
, you must strengthen them, unite them, pray and cover God's work
to restore His Kingdom! You called to the fivefold ministry
… you have a major part in the restoration of of God's creation and the building of a new earth
! You are not a title, but a selected vessel
for this end time. Be prepared
