FEAST OF TABERNACLE - 2012 – 7th Day
During this feast we have been blessed and inspired by God to talk on subjects like Two Gospels, Christ has come, Image of God, Born Again, Fig Tree and all the Trees, Lake of Fire ….. helping us to grasp the simplicity of the gospel with a deeper understanding of his divine secrets.
Today I would like to speak on why a Body was raised? Whose Body was raised? Is it Christ’s new body? For what purpose has it been raised?
BODY OF CHRIST
When the ‘spiritual” temple of GOD was destroyed and taken captive, a new body is raised to CHRIST. What is the purpose of the Body of CHRIST??? When would this new body be raised? Remember the LORD’s words; “destroy this temple, I will build another in three days?” and it is a Heavenly body which would be with CHRIST for ever.
Scripture says all seven eras fell, and the leaders in His church are to become beasts, foxes, serpents etc. and He knew, only His body could do His end time work. Lam 5: 18 says, the foxes who are the prophets (Eze 13: 4) would destroy the Mountain of GOD. This is why CHRIST said, ‘the foxes have holes but the Son of Man has no place to lay His head”. This is the main reason why CHRIST called out His church, to lay His head to be His body, when such gates of hell (the fallen leaders who has no Holy Spirit) exists. And Rev 1: 18 says, CHRIST comes with the keys of death and hell only in judgment. Then Rev 9 says that is the time the stars are put in to the bottomless pit. That is when the leaders or the gates would be in hell. Then, that is the time JESUS CHRIST THE LORD calls out His real church or the body of JESUS CHRIST.
Therefore, the real body of JESUS CHRIST would be called out, when the gates of hell or the beasts or foxes have desolated Zion, which is in judgment. That is the body He called out of darkness in to His light.
Body of JESUS CHRIST are the believers of CHRIST. His church is called when the gates of hell exist. The gates are the leaders, and hell is when they go to wilderness, or to the bottomless pit or not having Holy Spirit, the cisterns, go to pit spiritually. That is when, CHRIST calls out the real church. Then, these called out ones are the “gates of righteousness” which they should allow to enter in. (Ps 118:19).
Everything around the captivity and the judgment would be done by this called out body of Christ.
Apostle Paul wrote to Gentiles ….they are CHRIST’s body. 1 Cor. 12: 27. Eph 4: 12- 16 …
CHRIST knew that He would come as a thief to purify the ministry after the final falling away happens and Israel will have to be brought back for the second time from spiritual Egypt. He knew He would be betrayed by His own wife and she will turn as an enemy in the “Last hour”, just as all left Him in the first century.
At that time, He prayed sweating blood to be saved from the death. Now, that death is on His wife. So He needs a body to pray over for His wife also, and to do what He desires, the end time work as we can see. He knew that He Has to leave her to die forsaking her … as she is full of sin, and Him being righteous, cannot dwell with her. Therefore, He planned to redeem a few by His own blood and save them by His mercy and grace and then use them to bring her back to Him, and do the work of reconciliation. He knew, only His own body, giving His own mind … will submit to Him totally to do His work.
We know, as CHRIST says, He will rebuke His own people because of His love. (Rev 3… as many as I love, I rebuke…), At the same time He pours His wrath, He plans to save her as well. Remember even the judgments are to give light. (Hos 6:5). And He killed them spiritually, in order for them to seek Him early (Psa 78:34). And then, when she is dead, someone had to be sent her to bring her back and preach the true gospel. (1 Pet 4: 6, Rev 14: 6-7). When CHRIST took the sins on Himself, GOD forsook Him. Same way when the wife too sinned, He Had to forsake her. Then He needs others to TREAD HER, JUDGE her, expose the sin, give her the truth, speak to her, comfort her, and reconcile her etc.
Dan 11: 36 says, the last king will prosper ‘UNTIL THE FURY” or the indignation be accomplished. That means there is an appointed time, for them to exalt themselves as well as GOD’s fury to be poured also. (Because, this exalting is a part of the fury) The evil man, the betrayer will be raised up, after the transgressors have come to the full as Dan 8:23 says. That means the man of sin, will do his evil work of causing all to serve another god while GOD’s fury also is being poured on. At that time, the church is spiritually dead and GOD’s STRONG DELUSION will be on them. Then, only CHRIST Has to come as a thief, to save them. At that time, He needs a body to work hard and whatever He Has to do afterwards. This is the whole purpose of His body, as we shall see.
Body to tread down the winepress.
If we read the Bible in the light of knowing that there are two gospels, we can have a CLEAR understanding of the Word and understand the present truth. Now, in “judgment” GOD divides the “wicked” from the “righteous”. The “wheat from tares”, the “sheep from the goats” etc. This is the time of the winepress and it is the assembly which helps CHRIST in the winepress as lamentations 1: 15 says. But the wicked are not to be destroyed as we have been taught, but GOD will heal and bring them back from captivity. Only their wickedness will be destroyed. This is why CHRIST is working hard at this time, to bring Israel, from Egypt, the second time, AS IT IS WRITTEN!
In Isa. 63: 2- 3… CHRIST says, He alone tread the winepress… but in Lamentations 1: 15... there is an assembly…
Isa 63:2 Why is Your clothing red, and Your garments like one who treads in the winepress?
Isa 63:3 I have trodden the winepress, I alone, and no man of the peoples was with Me. And I will tread them in My anger, and trample them in My fury; and their juice shall be spattered on My garments; and I will pollute all My clothes.
Isa 63:4 For the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come. }}}…. IN this scripture, we see, that CHRIST is pressing the vine, in the winepress, alone, in His ANGER, on the ‘DAY OF VENGEANCE” which is the ‘judgment”.
But, in lamentations 1: 15…
The Lord hath trodden under foot all my mighty men in the midst of me: he hath called an assembly against me to crush my young men: the Lord hath trodden the virgin, the daughter of Judah, as in a winepress. ..}}}…. In this verse, He says, He called an “assembly” to do so. Why Does the LORD say that He alone presses and then there is an assembly also called???
Remember, this happen when the time has come to ‘REDEEM’ them… as now. The vengeance is given to redeem as written above. In Rev 19: 11- -says, when He comes to judge, and make war with the antichrists, and His garment, is dipped in blood… He was at war and His garment as Isa. 63: 3 says, is dipped in blood… and those who follow Him, the armies already are dressed in “FINE LINEN”… but His wife has still not made herself ready…. V 15… He Has a ‘SHARP SWORD”… in His mouth…and that is the Word of GOD, which He uses to smite the nations, all the spiritual Israel, who have gone after other gods. Therefore, all these works are done by using this body.
CHRIST knew, only His own body could be led by Him, having the same mind… and CHRIST being the Head , and this is why, the believers, the Gentiles are given His own mind, and Spirit so they can do the works of CHRIST , when He comes as a thief.
Eph 1 says there are many parts of the body, till we all come in the unity of the faith and to make us perfect or to make us a new creation. That is how the new body is created. They are made perfect, and they will be used to bring others.
He comes to expose the wickedness of the leaders who failed, (Eze 16:61- 62) and to witness against them (Mal 3: 5)… and to wash them or purify them which is done through the body. Also to destroy the last enemy, which is death?
CHRIST needed a body to reveal the deeper things or mysteries…to give to the world.
See how deeper the teachings of Apostle Paul, which he taught the gentiles?... only those who have the Spirit of GOD, and the mind of CHRIST are revealed the deep mysteries of GOD… all of his letters are full of mysteries, which is written to Gentiles, and for that CHRIST came to them.
CHRIST lives in us, if we have the doctrine of CHRIST, we have life.
Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Same way, the body of JESUS CHRIST also died and are risen with Him… Col. 3. So He could live or we could live where ever He Is. Col. 1: 26-27 proves we are given these mysteries having Him come in to us.
CHRIST said, only those who eat His flesh and drink His blood have everlasting life… so it is those who believed in His blood and body have his promises fulfilled in them and that is why now they have the life, and are the Body of CHRIST. To become the temple of GOD, one must enter after being cleansed by CHRIST’s blood. One enters the new covenant also through blood of CHRIST as we have proven.
Rom 15; 1... at this time, the strong ones are the gentiles, who have to bear the infirmities of Israel. As Psa 69: 9 says, the reproaches of the ones who reproach God have fallen on Christ. So the slaves of Christ have also need to bear the iniquities of the weak…. It is CHRIST’s BODY which bore our infirmities. This is why; the witnesses and those who have the truth are spiritually murdered by the church. One need to lay down their lives as Christ said to bring others to God. So the Body of CHRIST spiritually had to bear other’s infirmities.
When we read the letters of Apostle Paul we must know that they are written to gentiles, who are under grace. Now, all of his letters have new meaning. A whole new creation, a temple of GOD, a body of CHRIST is being created through CHRIST. Gentiles are given the full knowledge, Holy Spirit and they are with CHRIST.
The Body of CHRIST, is formed to bear the same glory, and same disgrace as CHRIST Had .Then, CHRIST said, if your right eye causes you to offend, take it out and throw it… (Mat 5: 29) and if your right hand cause … cut it out. Of course, physically, no one will do that. but spiritually, CHRIST Has cut off His right hand man, who is the high priest, and the eye?... is( Mat 6: 22) the lamp of the body and the lamp which is the “church” now is put out.. (Zech 11: 17, 12: 6 )Not only that, CHRIST’s body, which He built in Israel, is dead now and need to be raised up. Whatever this high priest failed to do, now the body of JESUS CHRIST has to do.
So the body of JESUS CHRIST was raised now.
Joh 2: 21… CHRIST said, destroy this temple and in three days, I will raise it up. He was speaking of the temple of “HIS BODY”. This is a prophecy for our time. When His body, which He came to, rejected and killed Him. GOD raises it up on the third day. Now, His body, or His wife is dead having sinned and not repented. So a new body is raised up made ‘not with hands” as CHRIST said… the Gentiles are COMPLETE IN HIM… and are made without hands.
Col 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
Col 2:11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of CHRIST.
Those who are made without hands… will sanctify Him…another work the body has to do…
Isa 29:23 But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel…..
As Col. 3 says, they are in the heavens, and this new body of JESUS CHRIST is called the ‘heavens’. This is why the Scripture says the ‘heavens’ will declare His righteousness. This is one of the works of the new body.
Heb 1:10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands
Then through this heavens, or the body of JESUS CHRIST, He answers the earth….
Hos_2:21 And it will be, in that day I will answer, says Jehovah. I will answer the heavens, and they shall answer the earth,
They become the ministers of the Sanctuary …
Heb 8:2 A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
Heb 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry…}}}…. This ministry is the works of GOD’s hands… because; the HEAVENS ARE THE WORKS OF GOD’S HANDS…. So v 1 says CHRIST is the high priest… and now there is another ministry… the heavens, the works of GOD’s hands… this is the temple made without hands.
Isa 26 explains that when CHRIST visits the sins of the people, and when the poor are treading down the rich, and when the judgments are on the earth, the righteous people will come and Israel will learn righteousness. Now GOD Has shown who are the righteous people. At that time, the dead body will be raised up.
Rom 8: 23 says, we are the first fruits. We proved that GOD considers us as living and already saved being begotten by GOD’s Spirit. V 28- 39 proves that our salvation is already preplanned by GOD through CHRIST our LORD, to be the Body of CHRIST. Which means, when GOD planned to send CHRIST, at the same time, the Gentiles also were planned to be the Body of CHRIST.
Rom 12 explains we have the renewing of the mind, brotherly love.., fervent in spirit, serving the LORD, in hope, in prayer … and we are to bless those who persecute… v 14. and v 17… not to return evil to evil…, be in peace with all men… not avenging, as vengeance is GOD’s…
v 20… we must feed our enemy. This is only the body of CHRIST could do. To pray, to feed the enemy, be at peace, and overcome evil, with good etc…Only those who have the mind of CHRIST could do them. Those who are under the Law, are now dead. But we, who are under grace, have become the Body of CHRIST.
We glorify GOD, in our bodies.
Eph 1 explains that Gentiles are “FAITHFUL IN CHRIST”…, God The Father, blessed us with ‘EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING”…., in “HEAVEN”… with CHRIST. He elected us, before the foundation of the world to be HOLY and without blemish, through CHRIST… to be redeemed by the blood, ….through grace, ….and made known to us the mystery of GOD’S WILL… (These mysteries are kept hidden a secret till now) v 12… the ones who trusted CHRIST “FIRST”… that means, Israel is second.
This new body will be the first fruits of creation. We are given to know why we are called… body to witness to the truth….
We are the first fruits of His creation… v 13… hearing the WORD OF “TRUTH”… (This is why, we witness to the truth. CHRIST came to witness to the truth. We saw that we are the faithful. So, now, we have the ‘truth’. In “believing”, we are sealed… with Holy Spirit. V 14... Purchased … this is why, who are redeemed by blood, is now helping CHRIST to fight with the beasts in Revelation, as we proved.
V 17… we are given the “spirit of wisdom and revelation in the full knowledge of Him”….,as written above, we are complete in Him.
v 18… the eyes of your mind having been enlightened, for you to know what is the hope of His calling, and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,…and CHRIST , gave all to His body, which is the assembly, or the church.
Eph 1:22 and He "put all things under His feet" and gave Him to be Head over all things to the assembly,
Eph 1:23 which is His body: the fullness of the One filling all things in all...
GOD put all things under CHRIST’s “feet” and He Has made the “assembly
”, which is HIS “BODY” over all things. So the body is formed to fulfill all things.
These mysteries are revealed to the body, or the church to complete or fulfill all things. So at this time, it is the Gentiles who will be revealed these and will declare it to Israel…
Rom 11: 25 says, Israel is blind till the fullness of the Gentiles come in. So when we are called, Israel is not the church. They are overcome by satan, which is why there are beasts and creeping ministers anti christs, man of sin etc. Then, satan will be bruised under this body’s feet.
Rom 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. ..}}} ….This is what is happening now, as we cast out the devil as CHRIST said… at the "Day of Judgment", by the Spirit of GOD which are the words of JESUS CHRIST THE LORD. Mat_12:28 But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God… (Joh 6:63). Since the Spirit is the words of JESUS CHRIST THE LORD, He needed a body to give the Spirit when He comes the second time. (Isa 11: 9 – 11). It is the ‘Gentiles’ who received Him the second time, which is why He taught these mysteries to Apostle Paul to WRITE TO GENTILES.
This is conquering the last enemy. And it is done under Gentiles’ feet, which is the feet of CHRIST’s body. This is the spiritual meaning of why, CHRIST showed to the apostles His feet and Hands, after He was resurrected...
1 Cor 15: 25 says, the enemy will be put under “CHRIST’s” feet. And this verse says, it will be done in Gentiles’ feet. So, it is the Gentiles, who are working as the feet of CHRIST. (Part of His body)
When the ministry does not fear Him (Mal 1: 6,), He receives incense from Gentiles Mal 1: 11. If the ministry did not fear, then it is the Gentiles to whom these are written who feared Him. Because the wisdom is given to those who fear as the fear of the LORD is the beginning of the wisdom.
Mal 4:1 For, behold, the day is coming, burning like a fire pot; and all the proud and every doer of wickedness shall be chaff. And the coming day will set them ablaze, says Jehovah of Hosts, which will not leave root or branches to them.
Mal 4:2 But to you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness shall rise up, and healing will be on His wings. And you shall go out and frisk like calves of the stall.
Mal 4:3 And you shall tread under the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day which I am preparing, says Jehovah of Hosts. ..}}}…. we are the ones who have the burning ‘FIRE” ( the words of GOD ) to burn them to make them ashes we are the ones who are righteous, and have GOD’s Light or Sun….,( ( see "Glossary" for the heavenly vision ) we are the ones who pray for the healing of all Israel as we are rich in faith ( Jam 2: 5, 5: ) we are the ones who tread down the wicked as Rev 11: 2 and Lamentations 1: 15, and Is 26: 6…,
And it is the synagogue of satan, in our time who are to come down before our feet.
Rev 3:9 Behold, I give out of the synagogue of Satan those saying themselves to be Jews, and they are not, but they lie. Behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and they shall know that I loved you. ….}}}…. CHRIST says, He loves us. This is why HE PRE – planned to sanctify us by the truth as HIS BELOVED … (2 The 2: 13). So you see…., the enemy will be destroyed under the feet of ‘CHRIST ’, and the Gentiles, and we, who feared GOD, and overcame the synagogue of Satan, are the ones GOD will love and it is before our feet, they will worship GOD and that is why, we are CHRIST ’s feet.
It is the Gentiles, who are far away from EAST, in the islands who are to come near IN JUDGMENT, and who are made righteous, who work for GOD’s foot.
Isa 41:1 Be quiet before Me, O coasts; and let peoples renew their power. They come near; then they speak: Let us draw near together for judgment.
Isa 41:2 Who raised up the righteous from the east? He called him to His foot; He gives nations before him, and subdues kings; He gives them as dust to his sword, as driven stubble to his bow;
But after the judgments,
1 Cor 3: 13 onwards… everyone’s work will be revealed in the fire… and will be rewarded accordingly. Therefore this fire, the Word of GOD had to be given to this new body.
A new creation, a new body of CHRIST is being made… to finish and fulfill all things…. by looking at Eph 1: 22- 23… it says, GOD Has given all things to CHRIST , and He Has given it to His body to finish all things. That includes all the mysteries etc…. this is the time as CHRIST said in Luke 21: 22… all things will be fulfilled during the ‘vengeance”, which is the "Times of Gentiles". Having given the full understanding in all knowledge and Spirit, the mind of CHRIST, COMPLETING IN HIM AS WRITTEN ABOVE, we can see now, CHRIST’s body is given the mysteries to finish all things what His wife failed to do.
Eph 4... till we all come in to unity of the faith and full knowledge of CHRIST … and fullness of CHRIST. V 15… speaking the ‘TRUTH”… CHRIST is the Head… (also Eph 5: 23) and we are the body, built in love. Israel’s ministry is being alienated from the life of GOD… they are ignorant. In Isa. 56: 1- 10, GOD says, when the salvation is about to come, the Gentiles are accepted in GOD’s mountain and altar, House of Prayer and are given a name etc.
Eph 4: 21… we are taught in CHRIST, and we have ‘TRUTH”. This is to happen when there are liars as Apostle John said. V 22- 23... we have put off the old man… and are renewed in the Spirit of our minds and have become new man…On this Sabbath, which is to make the man.
THIS BODY IS MADE RIGHTEOUS, AND THEN THEY WILL TEACH RIGHTEOUSNESS TO THE WORLD AFTER TREADING …
V 24 “according to God was created in righteousness and true holiness”… now, we are asked to speak the truth with one another. We should declare the truth to the liars who are being witnessed against and judged. THIS IS THE RIGHTEOUS NATION WHICH SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO ENTER… Isa 26: 2- 6, AT THE TIME TO TREAD DOWN AND V 9 SAYS, THEN THE WORLD WILL LEARN RIGHTEOUSNESS… (DURING THE JUDGEMENTS).
To witness to the truth, we must speak… this is why… Read the whole chapters to get knowledge of “when” this would happen ……SINCE WE ARE COMPLETE IN HIM AND ARE MADE RIGHTEOUS, AS HIS BODY…
Psa 37:30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks judgment.
Psa 49:3 My mouth shall speak wisdom, and the thoughts of my heart shall be of understanding. }}}…. This was said by king David… it is the righteous Branch which is now working to speak wisdom… the Branch will speak righteousness…AS WE LEARNED YESTERDAY, THAT BEING WITH CHRIST, THE RIGHTEOUS ( 1 Jon 2: 1 , Jer 23: 6, 33: 16 ) Judgment and wisdom is given to HIS BODY on the "Day of Judgment". So it is the Body of CHRIST, who will be speaking for CHRIST …
Pro 2:5 then you shall understand the fear of Jehovah and find knowledge of God.
Pro 2:6 For Jehovah gives wisdom; out of His mouth are knowledge and understanding.
Pro 2:7 He lays up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to the ones, who walk in integrity,
Pro 10:29 The way of Jehovah is strength to the upright, but ruin is to doers of iniquity.
Pro 10:30 The righteous shall never be moved, and the wicked shall not dwell in the land.
Pro 10:31 The mouth of the just flourishes with wisdom, but the perverse tongue shall be cut off.
Pro 18:4 The words of a man's mouth are like deep waters, the fountain of wisdom like a flowing stream. …}}}}… it is the Gentiles, who is an overflowing stream as Isa. 66: 12…SO IF THEY ARE A FLOWING STREAM, THEN THEY ARE A FOUNTAIN OF WISDOM. ONLY THE BODY OF JESUS CHRIST COULD BE SO. Which is now speaking … and being the wisdom given only during the judgment, it is we who speak for CHRIST … as He Has come to reveal all things. Out of the ones who believe, the rivers of living water will flow as Joh 7: 38… Now, we have overflowing waters as in the days of Noah…!!!
Pro 31:26 She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the law of kindness is on her tongue. }}}….This is the elect lady... 3 John. Do you see who speak for CHRIST???
Joh 14: 26 and Holy Spirit will witness about CHRIST now as it is the Spirit of Truth… Joh 15: 26, He will announce the things TO COME…Joh 16: 13… this is why, CHRIST needed a body…, there was so much to do in these three and half years, during the judgments.
Joh 15: 26…, 16: 13, CHRIST said, when the Spirit of ‘TRUTH’ comes, He will witness concerning Him… So who has the Spirit of Truth? It is the Gentiles, and they only can witness of the truth. It is the ‘body of CHRIST’ which only can witness to the truth, as the Head directs us.
When CHRIST breathed, they received the Spirit. Now, He Has come as a thief to consume the man of sin, with His breath also as 2 The 2: 8 says.... that means to give him all knowledge. So it is given through the BODY OF JESUS CHRIST TO witness to the Truth and about CHRIST.
CHRIST, prayed to GOD, that one day, those who believe Him and the Word, should have the same glory as CHRIST does, and for they will be sent to the world and God The Father and CHRIST and they are to be one and for GOD’s NAME should be over them. TODAY…. THIS PRAYER OF OUR “HEAD” HAS BEEN FULFILLED!!! Joh 17: 1 7- 26…
“Sanctify them in Your Truth; Your Word is Truth.....As You have sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world…..and I sanctify Myself for them, that they also may be sanctified in Truth…. …I do not pray concerning these only, but also concerning those who will believe in Me through their word;…., that all may be one, as You are in Me, Father, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me….,And I have given them the glory which You have given Me, that they may be one, as We are One:,,,.., I in them, and You in Me, that they may be perfected in one; and that the world may know that You sent Me and loved them, even as You loved Me,,…, Father, I desire that those whom You have given Me, that where I am, they may be with Me also, that they may behold My glory which You gave Me, because You loved Me before the foundation of the world,…, Righteous Father, indeed the world did not know You, but I knew You; and these have known that You sent Me…., And I made known to them Your name, and will make it known, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them….” ONLY A BODY COULD BE ONE WITH THE HEAD!! AND WE ARE HIS OWN FLESH AND BONES… Eph 5: 30. AND CHRIST IS IN US. Col. 1: 27.
And it is the Gentiles who are sanctified.
Apostle Paul said, his gospel came in power in the Holy Spirit. And it is the Gentiles, who will be blameless when CHRIST comes as
1 The 5: 23 says And may the God of peace Himself fully sanctify you, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ… It happened not because of our righteousness, but according to His MERCY, and SAVED us through washing, when the regeneration came… ( Tit 3:5)… it says, already SAVED… since GOD planned it from the beginning, it is as already done, even by then, as CHRIST taught to Apostle Paul.
2Th 2:13 But we ought to thank God always concerning you, brothers, beloved by the Lord, because God chose you from the beginning to salvation in sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth..}}} …. it is the Gentiles, whom, were CHOSEN BY GOD, from the BEGINNING, to be sanctified, by the Spirit and TRUTH!!! You see, this was GOD’s plan, from the beginning… to be with CHRIST … to witness for Him…. To witness to the truth.... CHRIST is witnessing to the truth, through us, His body…
Eph 5 talks about the sinning church and the Gentiles. We are to follow CHRIST. As v 3 says, others commit fornication, uncleanness…
V 5- 7… Apostle Paul always said to the gentiles to expose and stay away from the lying Jews. But we have not found a single time, GOD tells the Jews to expose the Gentiles in this sense.
V 11, we are given the authority to reprove the sons of disobedience…the body of CHRIST can judge… (Col. 2: 16) we are to do so, when the days are evil as v 16 says… as you can see, all the things which are to be fulfilled during judgment, is done by the Body of CHRIST.
When CHRIST was resurrected, and was seen by the apostles, who are (Luke 24: 39...) unbelieving, He said…
See My hands and My feet, that I am He? Feel Me and see, because a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as you see Me having}}}… CHRIST showed His body… saying He Has “flesh and bones”…. this is a prophecy for our day, as His flesh and bones will do a work for Him. So who are the “Flesh and bones” of His???
Eph 5: 30… For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones…}}}….This is not only the gentiles who are under grace, but all those who will hear our report as CHRIST said…. This is back to the beginning … as Eve was made out of bones. Anyone who wants to see the sign of CHRIST’s body, must see us, His flesh and bones. This is why He created a body…
When the wife of CHRIST has fallen, the new Body of CHRIST is made for several reasons.
A) One to judge the wife of CHRIST who is spiritually dead
B) To pray for her FORGIVENESS AS SHE IS DEAD SPIRITUALLY AND DOES NOT KNOW SHE IS DEAD,.. To repent and turn to GOD, and
C) to send her the Word of GOD to wash her sins, and show her how to get righteousness so that she can cover her nakedness and wear fine linen… and
D) To reconcile her with CHRIST and to talk about peace, the covenant of peace, and
E) To plead with her and get her ready for the marriage.
Psa 11:4 Jehovah is in His holy temple; Jehovah, His throne is in the heavens; His eyes see; His eyelids will examine the sons of man. }}}…His Holy temple is the “body of Christ”… (Our citizenship is in heaven Php 3, Col. 3, Eph 2,) that is where God dwells and we are considered to be in heaven. Being the ‘clouds’, we are in heaven. That kingdom rules over all.
The body of Christ is the church which Christ said; He will build upon the ‘Rock”. (Mat 16: 18). The “Rock” is Christ, as we all know. That is the chief Corner Stone. This was said to “Peter”. This is why Peter wrote in 1 Peter, that the gentiles are built upon the ‘Stone” but the Jews will stumble on the same.
The Body of CHRIST is given the ministry of reconciliation ….
2Co 5:17 So that if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new!
2Co 5:18 And all things are from God, the One having reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and having given to us the ministry of reconciliation,
V 19. as, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not charging their deviations to them, and having put the Word of reconciliation in us.
2Co 5:20 Then on behalf of Christ, we are ambassadors, as God is exhorting through us, we beseech on behalf of Christ,
Be reconciled to God!!!
GOD loves Israel. CHRIST came to His own… why would you choose death oh Israel??? … Repent and be washed… and
Be reconciled to God!!!
He is your maker… He wants you to repent and come back…!
If anyone is ‘IN CHRIST”, he is a new creation.... The new, glorious temple, to which CHRIST comes the second time, is now being built. The New Jerusalem, comes out of “Heaven”, which was promised to the over comers in the Philadelphia era. And right now, GOD considers us as living in heaven… Old life is passing away… and already the Gentiles are considered to be born again, begotten by God The Father, as we ALREADY are reconciled. CHRIST, Has reconciled us to God The Father, already. This is why, as we wrote earlier, CHRIST showed the apostles His hands and feet and bones and flesh…which means His ‘body
Being the Body (of CHRIST), we only do what our Head commands us to do... Other people cannot do what our heads want to do. Same way, CHRIST’s body only will do what He wants to do.
We are given all the armor of GOD to fight the devil and to cast out, as CHRIST said, which will happen in the ‘kingdom’. (Mat 12: 27… the children “WHO ARE CASTING OUT THE DEVIL,” will be the’ JUDGES…AND THE FINGER OF GOD ( Luk. 11: 20) We have proven that it is the ‘Arm of the LORD” which will cut the dragon as Isa. 51: 9, Psa 89: 10 and that is us) Arm and finger are parts of His body.
A body follows the head… this is why; CHRIST can trust us with His wife… The head can’t go anywhere without the body. They stay together. This is why, we understand the mind of CHRIST and have to pray and to judge and to warn , plead , talk peace, to reconcile her to CHRIST , and fulfill the end time work as CHRIST would have done…. even to bring Israel, also the work of the house of prayer, ( as CHRIST would be praying and doing) and atoning, cleansing, purifications, offerings, sending incense etc… all must be done by the body of CHRIST ….the major work is “TO BRING BACK HIS WIFE” . Only a true body will understand and could do the work of the Head! The body is dead, apart from the Spirit or the mind and the Holy Spirit, also
2Co 5:20 Here we are, then, speaking for Christ, as though God himself were making his appeal through us. We plead on Christ's behalf: let God change you from enemies into his friends! }}}…. CHRIST is sweating blood trying to pray to bring His wife… so the friends should help Him…
In John 15: 1- 26… CHRIST said to remain in Him… or like a branch we will be cut off. So now, who is in CHRIST??? According to Apostle Paul, it is the Gentiles…
V 7… “IF” …”IF”…”IF” you remain in Me, says CHRIST , and My ‘WORDS” … whatever we ask, it will be granted… now, at this time, what should be in our minds ??? It should be to bring the wife of CHRIST or our Friend’s wife back to him.
V 8… God The Father is glorified, if we bear fruits and anyone who abides in His words, they will be CHRIST’s apostle… that means those who abide in Him, will be sent to do something… (bearing fruits mean that) of course, we know, at this hour, the hour of prayer, it is the Gentiles who are being sent… they are ambassadors…
V 10… “IF”... “IF” you keep My commands … we will continue in His love… surely, the Body of CHRIST, now has proven that we have His love, as we have laid our lives for Him, and to His wife, (spiritually murdered) and CHRIST Has ALREADY cleansed us, so that GOD’s Spirit can abide in us, and if we have the Spirit of GOD, then we have His love too. The body, has to have the love of the Head… as CHRIST kept GOD’s Word, as He did just as the Father said, we also have to do, what the Head commands.
CHRIST is continuing to be in the God The Father‘s love, because He obeyed… and we have proven from the Word, that we have obeyed too. (2 Cor. 10:6). So we must have GOD’s love.
V 12…. Love one another… Apostle John also wrote to little children, to love one another in his first letter… he knew the mind of CHRIST. He was close to Him.
V 13- 14… there is no greater love than laying down our lives for our friends... or others… we have given our lives as Rev 20: 4, Col. 3: 1- 4 and many other scripture says… we are beheaded spiritually… these are the martyrs, who died for fighting for the truth in revelation… we do what our Head commands… this is why, we have been writing and pleading and praying for the wife of CHRIST to come back to Him… the body knows what’s in the mind of the head and do the things required…
V 16… He Has chosen us… and Has “ORDAINED”… it is a special mission, which we are given… to bear fruits. NO BODY CAN BEAR FRUITS IF THEY DO NOT HAVE CHRIST, the HEAD LIVING IN THEM…
whatever we ask in CHRIST ’s name, He will give it… this is why, the special “house of Prayer” is ordained… appointed…we know we will bear fruits, as Rev 19: 7 says… that the wife has made herself ready…to wash her sins, we are being used to send this water the Word…
The body will witness for Him, and will declare there is no savior other than CHRIST.
Isa 43:10 You are My witnesses, says Jehovah; and My servant whom I have elected; that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed; nor shall any be after Me.
Isa 43:11 I, I am Jehovah; and there is no Savior besides Me.
Isa 43:12 I declared, and I saved, and I proclaimed; and there is not an alien god among you. And you are My witnesses, says Jehovah, and I am God. …}}}…. GOD’s witnesses , whom He Has chosen, had no FOREIGN gods … That is why they are witnessing… so our witness, will make you believe in GOD… this is the faithful witness……
Isa 43:21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.
Isa 43:22 But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel. ..}}} … “GOD” Has formed this new thing, the witnesses (HIS BODY) who did not have foreign gods in them, to HIMSELF!!! They will show GOD’s PRAISE…. Remember the
Isa 44:8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any. }}}…. …. They are formed now, but appointed anciently… from the foundation of the world… Eph 1: 4, together with CHRIST … so they are the body of CHRIST … The Head and the body, was formed from the ancient times…. … these are the mysteries, which the prophets wrote but did not know… You see…. His body, also was formed when GOD planned to send CHRIST …
Body as the House of Prayer
Rom 8: 26…. And likewise the Spirit also joins in to help our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray as we ought, but the Spirit Himself intercedes on our behalf with groaning that cannot be uttered. …}}}} … It is the Gentiles who have the Spirit now… and the Spirit is leading us to pray and intercedes … this is why, in the 9th hour, we are made a new ‘HOUSE OF PRAYER” as we proved from the Word….and we are praying as our Head directs us…
Luk 22:44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground…}}}…. CHRIST, in the night He was betrayed, when praying, His sweat fell like blood from the body. Now, His body too is praying. What is done in GOD’s House of prayer”, other than praying for His wife? A real house of “PRAYER” is to ‘PRAY” for others.
We should pray fervently for her return, sweating like blood… This is why the prayers of the saints, are going up in revelation…. Rev 5:8, 8: 3- 4. These prayers, which are upon the “Golden Altar”, are the prayers of the “mercy seat”, which is in the “East” ( Mal 1: 11, Zeph 3: 10) as we have proven… now, it is the time of these prayers to go up to GOD, and HE WILL HEAR THEM, as the Spirit gives them the utterance…. ! We will see the fruits as CHRIST said, that God The Father will grant if we abide in Him. Rev 8: 4 says, the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before GOD…. the time has come for the wife to return and that will happen soon… all those who understand these mysteries, should pray fervently, at this time, if possible fasting, if you really want to be the Body of CHRIST.
The Gentiles were commanded to offer prayers and supplications … when the “wicked exists”. They are to take the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of GOD… this is the baptism of water, which is the prophesied flood, which comes from the Gentiles.
Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; …}}}…. First we are warned to be armed with the amour of GOD… ‘Faith’… and the sword of the Spirit… which is the Word of GOD…pray for all others,
Prayer of ‘FAITH” shall save the sick… the LORD shall raise him up… and if he has committed sins, they shall be forgiven… (Jam 5: 15)… The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. … the righteous are the ones who have the Spirit of GOD…who belongs to the body of JESUS CHRIST who is The Righteous. Those who have ‘faith’ are the poor as Jam 2: 5 says, and when they are praying, the sick shall be made well… and they will be forgiven… now is the time to receive the “Grace” of GOD… the need for the Gospel of Grace. But… one thing they have to do first…
Body of JESUS CHRIST will have GOD’s love…
1 Pet 1: 22… having purified your souls in OBEYING the TRUTH, through the Spirit…. With a pure heart. And v 23... being born again
Rom 12: 10, 1 Thes 4: 9… brotherly love… the Philadelphian attitude…, love one another. This is definitely to us, the remnant who overcame the synagogue of Satan during the Philadelphia era…. Also 3: 12… Eph 4: 2, Gal 5: 13…,
Rom 13:8 Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the Law…}}} … As we are given the love of CHRIST, we have fulfilled the Law…
CHRIST’s FEET bring good tidings while pressing in the winepress…
At the same time treading them in the winepress, the feet will bring peace offerings also. as Isa. 52: 7 says, the feet of him who bring good tidings “to” Zion or those who bring the “covenant of peace”, also the work of CHRIST ’s feet….who does it ????
Since it is written to Gentiles in the following verse, which is done by CHRIST’s feet also are the Gentiles now.
Rom 10: 15 … how shall they preach, except they be “SENT”… to preach the gospel of peace….}}} so now, we are sent… (Joh 17:20).
Eph 6: 15… when the evil day come as v 13 says, those who fight with the ‘TRUTH” and righteousness as v 14 says, will bring the gospel of peace to Zion …it is no one but the Gentiles.
In Luke 1: 79… “CHRIST” is to bring peace… and He sends His feet to bring the gospel of peace…. Which we are now doing.
Php 4: 7… Gentiles have the peace of GOD, which passes all understanding… this is how, our hearts and minds are kept through JESUS CHRIST.
To give a New and living way… the body is sacrificed….
Heb 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
v 5 ….“For this reason, coming into the world, He says, "Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but You prepared a body for Me”….}}}…Because the blood of animals could not take away sins, GOD Has prepared a body to be sacrificed to TAKE AWAY THE SINS. This is not talking about CHRIST’s body. This happens the second time.
prepared body”…what is “prepared” means Strong’s :… to complete thoroughly, etc. and it is the Gentiles who are complete in Him as written above . Then they are the prepared body.
CHRIST and the body is at the right of GOD.
Heb 10:12 But He, offering but one sacrifice for sins, "sat down" in perpetuity "at the right” of God,
He offered and sat at “right” of GOD…” then the body also at the right of GOD…
Col 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right of God.). …
CHRIST was declared the ‘Son of God”, by the resurrection from the dead. (Rom 1: 4). We are declared sons also after we are risen… (Colossians 3:1).
Without blemish… and chosen from the foundation of the world.
1Pe 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
1Pe 1:20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
Eph 1:4 even as He elected us in Him before the foundation of the world, for us to be holy and without blemish before Him in love,
BODY OF JESUS CHRIST ALSO WILL BE DELIVERED AND KILLED.
Mat 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My name's sake.
Mar 13: 9… they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. }}}…CHRIST came and died for the witness of the truth (Joh 18: 37). Same way, His death is to happen once again for His body, who are the believers, when they give the testimony to the truth. Rom 8: 17, 1 Co 9: 12, 2 Co 1: 6, 1 The 3: 4, 2 The 1: 5, 1 Ti 4: 10, 2 Ti 2: 12, 2 Ti 3: 12,, 1 Pet 2: 20, 1 Pet 3: 14, 1 Pet 3: 17, Co 2 : 12, Rom 6: 3 - 9, Co 2: 20, Isa. 66:5, 58:7, Jam 2, 3 John Rev 20: 4 we were beheaded for the witness of JESUS CHRIST. ).
Php 1:29 because it was granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer on His behalf. (2 Thes 1: 5, 1 Pet 5:10) …}}}… It is GRANTED FOR US TO SUFFER FOR ‘CHRIST”, BECAUSE WE ARE HIS FLESH. …. as you can see, THIS IS OUR CALLING, to suffer with Him because we are His own flesh.
This is how the body works for the mind….
CHRIST said I give the LIVING WATERS… (Joh 4: 10, Jer 2: 13, 17: 13, ). How Does He give the living waters??? Through His flesh who are called the ‘believers”. (Joh 7: 38, Zech 14: 8, Joel 3: 18,).
He said “I AM the light” (Joh 8: 12, Joh 9:5), we are to be that light (Is 60: 3). Jews not believing in Him are in darkness (Joh 12: 46).
The Gentiles are told …
1Co 12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
(1 Co 12: 12- 20, Co 2: 17,). If we are the Body of CHRIST, should we not inherit all things and are called the ‘sons of GOD”??? The ‘MIND” who is ‘CHRIST”, works together with the body. Is your mind separate from the body??? If your mind inherits some wealth, does not your body inherits that too??? Can you separate the two?? Same way, where ever CHRIST is, whatever He Does, we are as the Body of CHRIST, is to be with Him…!
Eph 5:30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones….}}}… we, the Gentiles are CHRIST ’S flesh, and bones. THIS IS THE GREATEST and HIGHEST CALLING ONE COULD BE GIFTED BY GOD, IN THE HISTORY PRESENT OR IN THE FUTURE…. THAT IS; TO BE HIS OWN FLESH AND BONES!!!!! The wife comes later. But the BODY FIRST…it is the body which works to bring the wife.
