Growing To See the Fullness of Christ
The many called of God will first come to know Jesus Christ only in the flesh. From out of the multitudes that know Christ in the flesh, the Lord will drag a few chosen thru the veil of flesh into the realm of the spirit. These few are God’s Elect who are given this blessing and the spiritual healing that comes with it. It is when this veil is removed that our blindness is healed and we are given to see and to hear spiritually. With ears to hear and eyes to see, such blessed men and woman will be given to see past the letter of the Scripture and begin to understand the mysteries of the kingdom.
Mat 20:34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.
2Co 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
Unless and until this happens, all the Lord’s doing, we will not understand what is really being said in the Scriptures. I can attest we will think otherwise but will have no clue until Christ is revealed to us in our appointed times.
Joh 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
At this stage of our walk we are yet carnal and remain unconverted. We may well have cleaned up the outside of our cup while in Babylon and will be doing many good works, but the fact remains our hearts will not be circumcised until the Lord returns a second time to bring judgment against our old man and carnal nature. We won’t know Him and have eternal life abiding in us, until our “day of the Lord” has begun in earnest.
Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
Christ will come again to make war in our heavens and that is how salvation will come and how we will then know He is the Lord.
Rev 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
Rev 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Rev 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Once faith has come and the Spirit given to God’s Elect (no free will involved) then as babes we will learn and grow quickly. The original Apostles who walked with Christ for 3.5 years remained unconverted themselves and Pentecost was just the beginning of their walk in the Spirit. They still had everything to learn and much to unlearn as the Scriptures tell us as they matured in the true faith. We like Peter and ALL disciples will think we are already converted and see when we are still blind as bats not knowing who Christ truly is.
Luk 18:34 And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.
Luk 22:32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. (We can’t do the works of God until faith comes and the Spirit is given)
Mat 26:35 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples (you and me all of us will live these words, it was not just Peter)
Joh 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
There is no avoiding it. We can’t shortcut God’s plan and not live the words of God that say we will first serve Him in the flesh but not know Him in the spirit. Before we know the real Jesus and understand Christ we will follow and know Him only in the flesh and will have no spiritual understanding as carnal babes in Babylon. But a day will come when the Lord returns to make war in our heavens and that is when we will begin to be taught the deep mysteries of the kingdom and know Christ in spirit
2Co 5:16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.
2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (even the Jesus we knew in the flesh)
Understanding We Live By Every Word
Isa 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
God’s ways are not the ways of the carnal mind and the carnal mind will think the ways of the Lord are foolishness. This verse below quoted in both Matthew and Luke, from what Christ spoke in Deuteronomy is a stumbling block to those that walk after the flesh who are yet carnal and claim they see but are indeed spiritually blind. That is all of us at one time because as we saw above when Christ comes to us the second time, those that say they are blind will be given sight and those that claim they see will be made blind.
Mat 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Deu 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
Few are given to understand the depth of this statement by Christ. He did not say man should follow the 10 commandments when He spoke these words. That is what Babylonian doctrine teaches, the Scriptures teach something entirely different — the truth. The truth is man will live by every word God spoke in the Scriptures which is His word. Nothing will be left out and we have specific warnings in Revelation 22 about those that will add to or take away from the words of God. For those given eyes to see, they will come to know that they will live by every word in the Scriptures. This means they will see themselves in every verse of the Bible. The verses are not speaking about somebody else, they are speaking about you and me and all men in the appointed times. It does take time to grow and to fully appreciate what living every word really means but the Lord will give the increase when we are able to bear it. So when you see this you are blessed indeed as then you as the reader “will understand” and Christ’s appearing is at the very door.
Mat 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
Rev 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
CHRIST IS (not was) COME IN THE FLESH
The mystery of living by every word comes with the understanding that Christ is the first Adam (sinful marred vessel of clay, the old man with a carnal mind) and the second Adam (the Lord from heaven, the new man). Christ is the first and the last.
1Co 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
1Co 15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
1Co 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
Christ being the alpha and the omega means that we are Jesus Christ (part of the BODY, not the head) as we come into this world as the first man Adam and in the appointed times are transformed into the Lord from heaven, the new man. Christ was made sin not when He died on the cross, but when He came in the likeness of sinful flesh. FLESH IS SIN, Christ’s flesh was sin and our flesh is sin and as God’s Elect, we are in Him and He is in us. He is the the alpha and the omega.
2Co 5:21 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.
Rom 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Christ having already overcome sinful flesh suffered thru all the same temptations we do yet He was without sin. But having done this, He is our high priest and is able to give us comfort in our time of temptation. All the lies of Babylon about Christ being immaculately conceived and having a different kind of flesh is nonsense and is another jesus. Jesus Christ HAS come and IS coming NOW, in sinful flesh. He is in my flesh right now making war in my heavens and bringing judgment upon the old man and cleansing His temple which temple I am and all of God’s Elect will be.
Act 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,
Act 7:49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?
Knowing where is heaven and what the earth refers to is paramount to understand what is being said. Anyone who denies this is still of their father the devil, is yet carnal and is antiChrist with their beliefs and are serving another jesus following a false gospel.
1Jn 4:2-3 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God. And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
2Jn 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
Israel – The Body of Christ On Which the Head Sits
Isa 49:3 And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.
Understanding “The Christ” thru which Christ does all His work today is giant mystery that carnal minds will yell blasphemy when they hear such things; but they simply do not understand. The Scriptures remains sealed unto them and it simply has not been given them to understand as many are called and only few are chosen. God’s Elect are not Jesus Christ the head, but we are indeed Jesus Christ THE BODY. Until Christ was resurrected in a spiritual body He had no place to lay His head and that was the parable being spoken about below. Jesus was not suggesting we become homeless vagabonds as many carnal holy rollers will lead you to believe. No, Jesus wanted to get on with building His church and bringing fire into the earth of His chosen vessels.
Mat 8:20 And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
Luk 12:49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?
The WORD is Christ and is within all those who are His body, the very Elect. That same Word is also called ‘fire’ in the scriptures and lo and behold, that fire is found in the same place Christ and His Word are to be found:
Jer 5:14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.
Rev 11:5 And if any man will hurt them [God’s witnesses], fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
Eventually all men will be dragged to Christ and be saved, all but the Elect at the White Throne Judgment. Paul speaking to the Greeks at Mars Hill plainly tells us what organized religion can never accept.
Act 17:28For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
A loving father is not going to torment his own children forever without end. Utter carnal delusion. So ultimately all men are Israel and Christ will dwell in all His people, but for now, God’s purposes is to save only the few His Elect. Hence Paul wrote of this parable and riddle that continues to confound the wisdom of the wise.
Rom 9:6Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:
Rom 11:26And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
It is God purposes to save the many thru the few and God’s Elect, the Body of Christ will be the rulers and judges in the ages to come. It is our speaking the words of fire that is the lake of fire and the words “of Christ” that will judge the multitudes in righteousness. Christ made clear that it would be “the words I have spoken” which would judge all men:
Joh 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
So Christ’s words are fire in the mouths of His elect, and we are all being judged by that very same fire now in this age:
1Co 3:13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
First and Last & Alpha and Omega
Christ is the first and the last. The Alpha and Omega and all points in-between. ALL THINGS ARE OF GOD. He causes all the good and all the evil. Yet the carnal mind and doctrines of Babylon have another jesus. Lightness and darkness is the same to the Lord.
Psa 139:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
He is not evil but indeed works evil for good and creates it for His purposes.
Isa 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
Gen 50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
Rom 8:28 And we know that ALL THINGS work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
So knowing these things, begins to unlock the mystery of what life is all about. If we are God’s Elect then we are told we are His temple, that is where He dwells right now sitting in our heavens.
1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
We are God’s house if we are His Elect. Not only does judgment begin with us and we are judged first, but in our house are both honorable and dishonorable things. God uses them both to accomplish His will.
2Ti 2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
And ultimately thru judgment the dishonorable things are purged from our lives, our bodies, our minds and the heavens that are within. The wood, hay and stubble, the dishonorable things will be purged with fire and heat.
2Ti 2:21If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
And once He completes this refining and destruction of our carnal nature, then we as part of His Elect, His ministers of flame on this earth can be used to do the greater works that Christ spoke about.
Mal 3:3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.
Heb 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
Joh 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
But these works cannot commence until our prior carnal works where we thought we served God but worked against Him and denied His name are burned up in the fire of His word during our judgment.
1Co 3:15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
Christ being the first Adam in all of us just goes to show that it was God’s purposes for us to live every word and to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. We cannot become like gods until we do so. We have to live by every word.
Gen 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
And this includes are very sins, the evil we commit and live by until the Lord brings judgment to us and causes us to obey His commandments.
Isa 63:17 O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants’ sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.
Pro 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
While we are these bodies of flesh, full of the law of sin and death, we cannot help but sin and it is only by His grace that we are given little by little the dominion to overcome. Only God’s very Elect will be given this dominion, which is salvation in this age. The rest will be saved in the Lake of Fire.
So hopefully some of the readers will see the heresy in the carnal doctrine that man was made perfect and believe the Babylonian lie of the fall of mankind. The fact is we were created sin. Flesh is sin and nothing good dwells in it.
Psa 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
One day we will live these words and speak what David spoke and then we will understand that even Jesus Christ in a body of flesh was not good.
Mar 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
The Scriptures, the very words we live by everyone tell us of God’s plan. We will live the darkness and live the sins that are written in the Book.
Jer 18:2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.
Jer 18:3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
Jer 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.
The details of our lives will be different but the one event will be the same and that is living by every word, and this begins with being the vessel of dishonor, the virtual sinning machine in a body of sinful flesh. We will walk in strong delusion long before in His mercy the Lord opens our eyes to see His wonderful works to the children of men.
Rom 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
This is remarkable truth of the Lord’s plan for us all. One that we will never believe even if a man declare it unto us. We will first be mockers of this truth.
Act 13:41 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.
If we are so blessed to be His Elect, then the veil of flesh will be removed and the Body of Christ will come to us and open the seals from the Book. Then we shall see.
Rev 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
Rev 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
Rev 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
I did not understand all of this at first. It took a couple of years of me eating the true bread from heaven and being in the midst of Christ to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord. Now I have been given a ministry to feed the flock and to bring the lost sheep into the fold. There won’t be many of them in this age as many are called and few are chosen, yet the Lord has been faithful to give me those opportunities and to even bring forth fruit of that labor.
Praise God for Him giving the increase to seed sown and water poured out.
1Co 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
I can now look behind and see where the Lord has taken me. It is not me living, it is Christ living in me. I know there is much still to be lived and to learn yet for each new day we are given, I can truly say thank you Lord for the “all things” that have been given to me.
1Co 3:21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
1Co 3:22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;
1Co 3:23 And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.
CHRIST RETURNS IN THE CLOUDS – HIS WITNESSES
The parable of Christ ascending into the clouds where He sits at in heaven at the right hand of God tells those with eyes to see where Christ dwells. Carnal eyes won’t be able to see where Christ went as it must be spiritually discerned.
Act 1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
Act 1:10And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
Again if we know where heaven then we can begin to understand the mystery.
Act 1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
Christ comes in the clouds, that is where everyone will see Him in due time. Those clouds are God’s Elect.
Rev 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
Rev_11:12And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Rev_14:14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
The Body of Christ is the clouds, we are His witnesses, it is us who have the testimony of Jesus Christ and loved not our life unto death.
Heb 12:1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Jesus Christ has a Christ and it is these witnesses that are likened to clouds in Scripture. These clouds are the lights unto this dark world but the cloud that is Christ is both light and darkness. To those very few God is dragging to Himself now, the clouds will be light in the night but to those carnal multitudes in Babylon who are not being dragged, the very same cloud is utter darkness. I have shared this Scripture lately that foretell of this mysterious way of the Lord.
Exo 14:20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.
Exo 19:9 And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever
I hope this post has brought you to see that we are Jesus Christ if we are His Elect. We are not the head but we are the body and consider who Jesus Christ the head says we are when speaking to our persecutors. Paul never saw the Lord when He was in His own personal body of flesh yet heed the words of the Lord.
Act 9:4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
Act 9:5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
If we can’t say this is true then it is not true. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. Just like our head, we will be hated and persecuted for doing what He did. Those in Babylon will seek to kill Christ in us that is speaking these truths.
Joh 5:18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
It takes time to grow in our understanding of the depth of God’s wisdom and to understand the meat of His word. We are not given it all at once, it is fed to us as we are able to receive it.
Joh 16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
We will close with a review of the warnings of adding to or taking away from our part in the book.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DENY WE LIVE BY EVERY WORD?
All of us will at first be adding to and taking away from the book of life in which the names of God’s Elect are written and in due time will include the names of all men. We have Scripture that tells us what happens and these too are words we shall live by in due time.
If we add to the words of God, we just are given more false doctrines, the plagues to deceive us and keep us blinded from the truth.
Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
If we subtract or take away from the book, saying those words do not apply to us, then we have no part in the book of life which means we do not know the Lord and are following another jesus.
Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
When we take away from the book, we don’t know Him and have not eternal life abiding in us.
Joh 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
I pray this has helped some of you see the bigger picture and to appreciate more that it is the SUM OF THY WORD that is truth. Only taking “some” of it is another jesus.
Psa 119:160 The sum of Your word is truth

Your brother living that one event that comes alike to all of us,
Ecc 9:2 All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath.
