CALL OF THE KINGDOM
There is a new presence of the father for His people to arise into His likeness today. We are summoned to join the angels and "thrust in the sickle and reap the harvest of the earth, for the harvest of the earth is ripe." The church system is soon to arise out of her dark night, for a people are eminently to emerge out of her ashes, and arise into Christ and His glory. The Father has always called out a new people by revelation to initiate a new order and a higher level of realization in Christ.
We are in a newer order than were the first disciples of Jesus. Therefore there needs be a newer method of spiritual functioning. Yet by the revelation, and power of the Holy Spirit. Only those putting on the New Day garment of Jesus Lordship anointing will function in the New Day order of the "Lord and His anointed." I speak of the "Third Day Anointing." Those of this New Day order are of "A broken and a contrite spirit." The Divine Potter has had them on the "Potter's Wheel.
"When He came into the world He said, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldst not, but a body hast thou prepared me." Heb. 10: 5.
"A body Father you have prepared me." The word prepared also means provided. This body was Jesus Himself. but you and I are the extension of Christ today, His many membered "anointed Christ body.
"Then said I, Lo, I come in the volume of the book it is written of me, to do thy will O God."Heb. 10: 7.
Beloved of the high calling of God in Christ, have you realized that in the volume of the book it is written of you? Moses wrote of you when he wrote of the "Promised Seed." Gen. 3:15, 22: 18, Gal. 3:16, 29, 4:28. David the sweet Psalmist of Israel wrote of the heirs of God, the Christ Seed. In the Psalms, He is speaking in us and we are speaking in Him. Christ is speaking in all, and all are speaking in Christ. And we are one in Him who is One.
No man is an island, in this New Day Presence of Christ, no man can be independent. "The new wine is in the cluster." Isaiah 65:8. This New Creation man, "the Lord's anointed"
is come into His "Third Day." His day of perfection. The "New Wine," anointing is not found in one grape, one man ministry. There is, "The voice of many waters,"Rev. 1:15 that makes up this cluster of "many sons" He brings to glory. Heb. 2. The New Day Presence and anointing is in many sons. A many membered body. And they have a divine Head, Jesus the anointed One.
The Lord told us in the late 1960's that He would remove the "lone eagle" ministries before He manifested His sons. Those ministries were men and women of renown that God gave gifts of power. People traveled thousand of miles to be in their presence for healing and the word they gave. But these gifted ones were limited. In this Lord's Day appearing Presence and anointing is no limitations. We are setting our expectations high in the God of our salvation. The sky if not the limit.
"I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is written in my heart." Psalm 40: 8. Is His will our delight? Jesus said, "My meat is to do the will of Him who sent me." To obey is better than sacrifice. Yea, thy law (His word) is written in my heart. When you was born of God, the "incorruptible Seed," which seed (of corn) multiplies itself. John 12.24, 1 Pet. 1: 23.
"Why do the nations rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth
set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against His anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sits in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak to them in His wrath, and trouble them in His great displeasure. Yet I have set my King upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the Lord has said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I will give you the nations for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession. Thou shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel." Psalm 2: 1-9.
We find in Acts 4: 25 to 27 the disciples of Jesus quoting this psalm in referring to Jesus, and to themselves also. The persecutors, "kings of the earth" were gathered against those disciples of the Lord, not Jesus Himself. Therefore the scripture is there referring to the body of the Christ. Now it is understood that Jesus is Lord. Scripture says that He is, God says so, Jesus said that He is. Yet the scripture speaks of the Lord's "anointed," of His Christ. David was speaking of Jesus. He is God's anointed, and Peter on the day of Pentecost stated, "This same Jesus whom you have crucified, God has made Him both Lord and Christ." Acts 2: 36.
Those set in their religious mode will today rage against the Lord and His anointed, and imagine vain things. They set themselves, the earthly minded kings, they take counsel together against the Lord and against His anointed. A word that is not of their making, cannot be tolerated. It doesn't agree with their scriptural mode of thinking, because they have the bible figured out. They are only conscious of the letter of scripture, having not plumbed into the spirit of the word. Old wine skins will reject this New Wine, calling it false doctrine.
"Yet have I set my King upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the Lord has said unto me, You are my Son; this day I have begotten you." The Lord said to me. Who is talking? You are my Son! Is the Lord Jesus talking to Himself? Jesus is the Great King. He is the Lord of glory, the Head of His body, visible and invisible on both sides of the river He is the Tree of Life. He is "Lord of lords and King of kings. He is King in Zion, His holy hill. And He is setting His Melchezedec king priest order upon His holy hill of Zion. The Lord has declared the decree. When the Lord declares a decree, nothing can short-circuit it.
We are in a newer order than were the first century disciples of Jesus. And Father is ushering in a newer method of spiritual functioning, yet by revelation, and power of the Holy Spirit. Only those putting on the New Day garment of Jesus Lordship will function in the New Day order His king priest nation. Rev. 3:18, 5: 10, 1 Pet. 2: 5, 9.
"Ask of me, and I will give you the nations for your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession."
Ah, beloved, Jesus has already possessed the nations as promised. He possesses them by love, and so will His sons. It is by love that we possess the nations. Yes, we are to possess the nations within us. Yet the Father's preoccupation is not just you and I, but "the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession." Yes, those walking on terra firma. "The harvest of the earth is ripe, thrust in the sickle and reap the harvest of the earth." The sickle is the word of God, and we being the embodiment of His love will harvest the nations unto our Father.
"You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them to pieces like a potter's vessel."
The Father has caught us up into Himself, and made us one with Himself. And being the embodiment of love, love is the rod wherewith we break them. God's love break's the hardest heart, and dashes the hardest of heart's into pieces. And He being the divine Potter, form's and shapes them into vessel's fit for the Master's use. "O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed (dashed to pieces, but changed), happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us (not with revenge). Happy shall he be, that taketh
and dasheth thy little ones against the stones." Psalm 137: 8, 9.
"You also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood..." 1 Pet.2:5. We are "lively stones" and Babylon's "little ones," their idols are to be dashed against "the stones." These lively stones that you are, are divinely appointed to bringing the daughter of Babylon down. That is the inhabitants of Babylon, the state of carnal confusion, and man's wisdom and knowledge, brought to naught. And the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever. Dan. 7.
Changes are imminent, they must come to all. And this is not optional. I am charged to say, the old boundaries are giving way to the new. Boundaries that were prohibitive are yielding to the Spirit word spoken by a priest king order, whom the Father has handed the golden scepter of the kingdom. Beloved, the sevenfold radiation's of the Spirit of the Lord energizes us to meet every crisis on this new frontier of the Lord and His anointed in His New Day Presence and appearing. From ancient times God's New nature-character was manifested to those who abandoned themselves to Him alone.
We are speaking a word that is the substance of overcoming to those who receive it. Your taste buds will be changed, and you will not be able to go back and eat of the old manna of yesterday. This new dealing of the Father with His people is accompanied by a fresh unfolding of His New presence which is a fuller representation of His nature and character. Let it not surprise you that the Almighty has a new and living Spirit word to us, from Himself for this New Day. We put on Jesus New name and character only as we are partaking of Him in Spirit, eating and drinking Him in spirit truth. All else is symbolic, we are terminating symbols for purer Spirit functioning.
None of the men and women of faith in the bible imitated their forebears. They heard the word of God, and acted on His instructions. When Moses led the Israelites to the Red Sea, what if instead of listening to the voice of God He had remembered Noah, and built an Ark? It would have been in vain. God is leading His people today beyond where the early church was. So let Him tune up your communication spirit senses.
God is beckoning His people to move into the "Third Day." Jesus said, "Today I do cures, and tomorrow I cast out devils, and the third day I shall be perfected."Luke 13:32. This literally happened in His life here on earth. Yet there is the spiritual sense that He was speaking of. He also told the Judeans, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." Then they began to question, thinking He was speaking nonsense. They said, "Forty six years was this temple in building, and will you build it up in three days? But He spoke of the temple of His body."
The temple of His body! That is you and I today! This is the third day, His day of perfection. Now, Jesus is already perfect, but He was speaking of His body, His temple of the Third Day.
In the first day of our enlightenment, there were cures that the Lord did. We ran to and fro and frolicked like young colt's of the pasture. And when brought into the corral were easily managed by our instructor's. Though in that stage we would bare our teeth, and complain and fuss. Though most of the time we loved our denominational cradle. We would lift our voice in defense of it. But in that first day there was some colts of the pasture who refused to be corralled, nor trained by the Master's instructor's. Self will leads to lean pastures.
In the "second day" our consciousness was raised to a higher stature in Christ. Here is where we began to learn of being led of the Spirit. The "second day," "Casting out devils" as expressed by Jesus, we were confronted by "principalities and powers in heavenly places," within. We were victimized by unenlightenment. The uncircumcised Canaanite within is a formidable foe, until "reckoned dead" through the cross of Christ.
Abraham had his first, second and his third day. "On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off." Gen. 22: 4. That was when he offered up Isaac his son in sacrifice. Jesus said, "Abraham longed to see my day, and he saw it and was glad."
Messiah is YAHWEH of the Old Testament, and YESHUA of the New Testament. Abram's first day consciousness of Him was YAHWEH Gen.12:1. God never wants to be external, so YAHWEH expanded Abram's consciousness of Himself in His First, Second, and Third Day, New Name character within.
Each revelation of the New Name nature character Abram received was a higher consciousness of Who and what God was in Abram. When Abram met Melchizedek king of Salem, God revealed Himself to him as EL ELYON, the Most High God, the possessor of heaven and earth. Gen. 14: 17-22. Later in chapter 17, God appeared as El Shaddi the Almighty God, which means, "breasted One." There God gave Abram a new Name Nature Character, "Abraham." His wife got a name character change from Sarai, to Sarah. Which means "princess." God said, "I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her." Gen. 17:16.
Joseph saw his first, second and third day in God. In Gen. 42:18, "Third day," Joseph began to speak to his brethren of restoration.
In Ezra 6:15 the house of God "was finished on the third day." And then in Hosea 6:1-3, is a reference to the Day we are writing of: "Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for He has torn, and He will heal us; He has smitten, and He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us: in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight."
"Come, let us return to the Lord." Has there been a "falling away," an apostasy? He is saying, "Come," gather unto me, you have left me." "Your ears have grown dull of hearing, you need spiritual hearing aids. My people have forsaken me the Fountain of life, and have gone after idols. They have followed blind leaders, who lead the blind. Return to me, the Lord. I have torn, and I will heal. After two days is revivifying time, time to awake from spiritual sleep. Arise from your bed of spiritual lethargy and I will give you light.
"Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth."
Then shall we know. That is if we follow on to know the Lord in His fullness of the "third Day. We have known His coming forth as the dew. But this coming forth of the Third Day in us is as the "double portion," "latter and former rain" combined. No lack for God's family. "The new heavens are now descending" to earth. "He shall come to us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth." "Awake O Zion awake, awake and trim your lamps."
"In the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight." We will live in His sight because we hear His voice. Hearing His voice causes us to awaken, to arise from the spiritually dead. I have heard His voice and have risen from the grave of this mortal flesh, from the Adam nature, into the divine nature of the Son of God. John 5: 25.
"But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." 11 Peter 3: 8.
Day bespeaks light, just as night speaks of darkness. And the children of the night have darkened minds, whereas the children of light are enlightened within. Jesus Christ is "the light of the world," and those whom He brings to the Father are then also the "light of the world."
"And I will bring the third part (Third Day Order) through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God." Zec. 13:9
Did not Malachi say in the 3rd chapter that "the Lord whom you seek shall come as a refiner's fire," and "sit as a refiner of silver: and He shall purify the sons...and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord an offering in righteousness"? So beloved, let the Royal Refiner take you through the purging process without complaining. Let us offer up to Him an offering of praise as a sweet smelling incense.
"I counsel you to buy of me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white clothing that you may be clothed, and the shame of your nakedness may not be manifested; and eyesalve to anoint your eyes, that you may see." Rev. 3:18. Here I am reminded of the parable of Jesus about the kingdom of heaven being like unto treasure hid in a field; and when a man found it, he hides it, and for joy thereof goes and sells all that he possesses, and buys that field. Mat. 13:44.
Salvation is free, Jesus paid it all. And we are so thankful for His loving kindness and tender mercy. But the bible speaks of a "high calling of God in Christ. And Paul said that he was "pressing toward the mark" of that high calling. And then he invites others of like mind to press into this calling also.
"Let us therefore, as many as are mature, be thus minded: and if in any thing you think differently, God will also reveal this to you." Philippians 3:14, 15.
All pressing into the Lord's New Day Presence, Anointing will have to divorce, or die to the old humanity. The nature of the old humanity can never have any inheritance in the Lord, and His anointed. For the old humanity is as Ishmael, but the true Seed is Christ.
"Buy of me gold refined in the fire." In Revelation one, John wrote of "One like unto the Son of man, clothed with a robe which reached to His feet and a girdle of gold about His breast. His head and His hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire. His feet glowed like (bright) burnished bronze as it is refined in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters." 13-15.
This great "Son of man" filling the heavens and the earth whose "feet glowed like (bright) burnished bronze as it is refined in a furnace." This is that order of sons who walk the overcoming life of Christ. You walk the talk, if you talk the walk. You walk through "hell, death and the grave." Which is the same thing. The old nature of humanity! Christ lives in our spirit, and "if we suffer with Him, we shall also reign with Him." "The feet glowed like burnished bronze." He said, "I will bring the third part (third day order) through the fire, and I will refine them as silver is refined, and try them as gold is tried; they shall call on my name, and I will hear them..."
As I was walking with the Lord early in the morning one day last week, He said to me, "You are becoming the word." And I received a new vision of us being the Word of God. He directed me to think on 1 John 1: 1-5. His word is electrifying, it quickens, makes alive. And we are born of His word that we may become His word. And He revealed to me that "The Lord and His Anointed" are "The Word of God" for this "Third Day." Beloved, what you are born of is what you are. And we will continue that next time, the Father willing.
In the Father's love.
