The Kingdom, the Bride, and the New Testament Church



The Kingdom, the Bride, and the New Testament Church

People apply to the outward, worldly, and earthy, what be spiritual and/or inward. The Kingdom is within yet everyone is looking outward for it to manifest and not in and through His people. In 2,000 years few have broken through enough where the Kingdom and its power were made manifest on the outward, (this not being His gifts of healing and miracles which are given freely).
Most have been held down by that which still lies within, yet there be some that do arise. The beastly Babylonish Kingdom outwardly and in and through others has really had their day. But it be the Day of the Lord and time for a turn around. Christians need to realize; if the Kingdom is within me then why hasn’t it come forth in its power and glory (true reality). Most have looked for it on the outward or they have looked to be raptured out of here this physical earth.
This is FIRST a spiritual journey and Israels journey is a type and figure or shadow for us to see that we need to apply ourselves more diligently. Israel was in bondage in Egypt (world), believe it or not, they left Egypt after Passover – Jesus is our Passover Lamb yet few Christians have left Egypt, the world (unrenewed thinking).
Ephesians 2:1-3, And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
There is a wilderness experience which teaches obedience and was to take but a short time. Then one needs to conquer those unruly `ites’ within ones self, as one goes to the promised land.
The Spirit once spoke, If you wait to see it all happen in the natural first, you will have missed it.
American Christians only want to go so far; one foot in the real Church to get the goodies and not receive outward judgments; yet sport one foot in with Leviathan and Babylon for all the riches that perish.
There will be no more, fence sitters, each person must make
their choice. Your thoughts (forehead) or the work of your hands, cannot bear the mark of man (666) and yet think to escape the judgments of such. Why else does He tell His people to flee Babylon (Revelations 18:4). But in Chapter 17, it says ‘BABYLON’ was the MOTHER of harlots AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH, she sits on many waters (17:1) and the waters are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues (17:15). And, yes, many of those who were His and maybe still are, are under this Harlot and Babylon and this has become their god, their head, instead of the True Jesus. They may have knowledge and be learned, but for lack of going on to the end (of this state of being) they have been taken up and are used or have become a harlot (according to scripture) themselves. Their UNCRUCIFIED FLESH starts speaking and they acting as though it be of and through the Holy Spirit and of Jesus. But this not be His character and nature, His name; nor are her ways, His.
What a sad commentary to our love of God!
People operate outwardly according to the realm they live in (spiritually). (Galatians 5:25).
The Kingdom of God is at present a spiritual one and is only revealed in and through His saints. The spiritual realm is one that comes forth IN TRUTH to the amount one has taken up his cross and died daily. Romans 8:5, For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. The carnal (soulish mind) is death, the mind set on the Spirit is Life. Being in the Spirit does not by all means – mean your soul isn’t operating. Its essence is of a higher level. Just so, as you die standing up – it is of a new essence including purity and truth that encompass all that comes forth because of its origin; it is no longer from the soul – under the fallen nature or a mixture but is itself transformed like a caterpillar into a butterfly. The outward showing and manifesting of this to the greater degree in the outward principles will be at a given time that He so says!
Jesus’ words are life and they are life to those who really eat of them. To make this point clear, in one major Bible sold in America, the footnotes are at times quite funny. Now their footnotes most of the time are very informative, but when it comes to the spiritual realm or Kingdom, they are right but wrong. In one place it talks about the New Jerusalem as suspended in the air above earth, and I guess that’s where it remains. They really meant literally. For those who interpreted this were obviously carnally minded, Intellectual and highly knowledgeable, yet lacked understanding of what was really
being said; for the natural (carnal) mind cannot comprehend the things of the Spirit. The New Jerusalem Is His BRIDE; it says so very plainly: (Rev. 21:9c), COME HERE, I shall show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb. (And again, the Bible WILL interpret itself.)
Rev. 21:14, And the wall of the city had twelve foundation stones, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
Eph. 2:19-22, So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of Gods household, having been built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together is growing into a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit. (see also 1 Corinthians 3:9-10…).
She will not be suspended above the earth but will indeed be in a HIGHER realm while here on this terafirma. It’s all right there in the Holy Bible. People (Christians) just don’t want to DO all His Word. Psalms 111:10, A good understanding have they who do His (Word) commandments.
Yes, they take up part of the scriptures but do not eat of them all. Christians here in America have settled for what they created and have called it Christian. Read Ephesians very carefully. Chapters 1-3 speak of our position while chapters 4-6 is PRACTICAL WALK. This book of the Bible speaks of who they were, what they had and what they were to do. In Chapter 4, you will see that the Body of Christ [He being the head and chief cornerstone] who are to speak the truth in love, and supply each one, his part of this building. Yet today this is not wanted nor understood nor believed. That’s why many of the scriptures are not read and even thrown out as not true (yes, according to Christianity, we see prevalent today). They have pride and don’t really want to repent. They care not to hear the truths about their flesh. It’s now called being a negative person; they have gotten so deep into other, they care not to be reminded that it will cost them, though it was common practice in the early church. Today the word is to only edify and exhort; but not as 11 Timothy 4:2 says: Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season, REPROVE, REBUKE, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. (so for lack of this the following verses says “for the time will come (and has) when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.”
Now I do know there are many quiet ones (whether you go to a
structure called a church or not), and you are in a better place than you yourself know, for you have tried to live from your heart and what we call gut feeling and most or part of the time it WAS the Holy Spirit within directing you. You may not see this because of what others say, is truth. Many a New Ugers at least from what we’ve heard, do know there is a spirit world or realm, but my question to you is: Do you have on a Wedding Garment?
There is one way, for He paid the price and that’s through Jesus Christ. New Agers, so they have called themselves have said nothing but good to us – except that they think we don’t know what we got. Yes, we do. We got Thee way, Truth and Life, and is in no way a part of (a member of) the latent power of the soul. While beholding Him we are constantly being changed from glory to glory (2Cor. 3:17-18).; transformed, metamorphoo – changed as Jesus transfiguration on the Mount (Matt. 12:2, Mark 9:2), from an earthly form into a supernatural. An invisible process. You have heard the saying: You become like those you hang around, You pick up their character and nature. So hang around Jesus, His character and nature, in Spirit, not law, and see what happens to you.
Eph. 4, is expressive of our life in the conduct that is keeping with our high calling. The Body, because of Him, is fitted and held together by the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied WHEN EACH PART with power adapted to its need, is working properly in all its functions, grows to full maturity, building itself up in love.
In the New Testament early church, they learned Thee way and were taught by Him as the truth is in Jesus, and were to avoid and put off conduct or those that were contrary to His keeping.
This New Testament church with the body as one, is NOT what Americans have LEARNED. There is no New Testament Church in America that we know of or that any pastors or others know or have heard of. One pastor didn’t answer, until he went to Spain on a missionary trip. He then came back and said that there is no New Testament church here. What he experienced he didn’t say, but he knew it didn’t exist here.
So the Body being one with each joint supplying can only at best exist in some odd crude form, within the church structure as we know it. Now look outside the box beings Americans have not seen, at least by experience in the churches lifestyles, the Body as one, so here we appeal to all individuals. There is one foundation on which to build and one chief cornerstone. The foundation stones are 12 in number and the twelve Apostles of the Lamb. We are Gods building. The apostles laid a foundation, others build upon
1 Corinthians 3:10 – 13, …I laid the foundation, and now another man is building upon it.But let each man be careful how he builds upon it,For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is already laid, which is Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Anointed One. Now if any man builds upon the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw; each mans work will become evident; for the day will show it, because it is to be revealed with fire; and the fire itself will test the quality of each mans work.
Do you know that the Word says (Mark 9:49), all will be salted with fire. Allow the Holy Spirits fire to cleanse you or you will see another Kind!
Here, Americas churches must see that any and all structures, spiritual and physical that be not of Him will not stand and must be brought down to be built aright. Because of this mess in America with no visual example, a New Testament church and it’s workings, each individual needs be accountable themselves to not get caught caring only for a faulty structure but expand ones view to be in keeping with truth.
Luke 11:33-36 Amp., No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar or crypt or under a bushel measure, but on a lamp stand, that those who are coming in may see the light. Your eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye [your conscience] is sound and fulfilling its office, your whole body is full of light; but when it is not sound and is not fulfilling its office, your body is full of darkness. Be careful therefore that the light that is in you be not darkness. If then your entire body is illuminated, having no part dark, it will be wholly bright [with light], as when a lamp with its bright rays gives you light.
On a light scale, there is a program on tell-a-vision where they build homes for others. I know not their position spiritually nor the reason or intent on starting this, but individually it is very plain to see that because of their heart, obviously being right, the principles of God are definitely at work. They have beheld Him, His character and nature to some degree and visibly we can see these builders change, even physically, for the good. Amazing! And my good guess is, they inwardly invisibly are being changed also. They at times could even be in heavenly places and not even realize it.
In America most Christians say it has cost them nothing to be a Christian, and they get to be raptured out of here, this physical earth. They call us fanatical, crazy or just not with it but we say what are you thinking!, or as Jesus said, what thinkest thou. We’re not speaking of God bringing His city, which be His bride – us, and physically suspending it in the sky, or physically being taken out of this earth to go eat dinner for 3 to 7 years. Now to me, THAT’S a
bit crazy. People are looking in a mirror and just don’t want to realize it’s themselves they see, so they point the finger and kill Gods people thinking they are doing God a service. And worse yet, there be far too many who think to enter anothers kingdom so as to pollute it or become it’s ruler and to steal ones values and valuables. For WE are the living temple of God and as of old, many are the thieves. Make sure there are no breaches in your walls. And shame on those who think to violate others, the temple of God.


John 3:12, If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how shall you believe if I tell you heavenly things?
John 16:12-16, I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. But when He, the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but what ever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He shall glorify Me; for He shall take of Mine, and shall disclose it to you. All things that the Father has are mine; therefore I said, that He takes of Mine, and will disclose it to you.
1 Cor. 15:36, You fool! That which you sow does not come to life unless it dies..
Man (male & female) in their natural (fallen state) mind want to claim we think some strange things yet natural mind cannot comprehend Spirit things. Its just that in todays society most people, at least secretly, think they know better than Gods spoken Word. They will not admit this, but in all practical situations by not having a teachable spirit in things they comprehend not, and in their hearts after knowing it is scripture, they have not the attitude that would lead them to see. They instead attack that which be spiritual all for lack of their natural mind, it playing as god and yet not being able to understand. Of course not!
People (Christians) today do not really understand life. Salvation as in Isaiah 45:22 is (in Hebrew) Yeshua, meaning Jesus, a person; so too, :Soter in Greek (New Testament), means Savior, again a person. But Life, in John 6:53 is : Zoe, (Greek), meaning movement, motion, activity; for it refers to the principle of life in the Spirit and soul. Distinguished from ‘bios’ physical life, livelihood, of which zoe is the nobler word, expressing all of the highest and best which Christ is (John 14:6; 1 John 1:2) and which He gives to the saints. The highest blessedness of the creature, salvation (safety, soundness) is the person Jesus, the savior, the free gift of God ( 2 Cor. 9:15) based on the merits of the shed blood of the Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ. Salvation is not the reward of any merit on mans part (Titus 3:5; Eph. 2:8; Rom. 4:5). He (God) is not a merchant, but a Great King, salvation is Free, but
God and Satan (our old father, John 8:44) cannot rule in the life; therefore the labor of the believer is to utterly remove the rulership of Satan in the Life. Washing and cleansing is imperative, for in so doing great abundance of Life may enter the believer. Room must be made or hindrances and barriers will remain to defeat; the overcoming or being overcome; mature or childish. I feel that people in general today, are getting this message, yet not understanding what God is saying to them. So they literally take at least one shower a day to try and cleanse ones self; and bathrooms today, in American homes, today are becoming a place you could live in. This be all fine and good as long as the individual from a hearts cry says clean me up, I want to be clean, and thereafter be obedient to the other promptings He gives.
In salvation, the recipient opens his heart to the Savior for possibilities, opportunities and potentials of power and love unlimited; for all that He is, we may be, (1 John 4:17) except diety. But the quantity of Life (zoe), which means movement, is contingent on the exercise and effort (Luke 16:16), expended in purging, cleansing, and purifying, which is slaying, putting to death the corruptible self – ego – flesh.
Canaan land WITHIN may be possessed little or much, it may be entirely occupied by the Canaanites. There is no short cut to Life, no one shot deal, but a narrow way (Mat. 7:13 & 14). This is ever a fight and fighting the good fight of faith (Tim. 6:12). The powers of darkness (the ites) and the gates of Hell must be exterminated, put to flight, made breathless.
The Old Testament is a figure and type. In Joshua 1:2, I do give the land; and in Joshua 1:3, every place your foot doth tread upon. Should God give and then tell them to take it by conflict and warfare? Yes! This is the manner and way of our God. But in the final analysis it is by faith, trust, and obedience that victory is gained, NOT by a summons to the flesh effort. Christendom continues to try this way, calling the flesh with its frailty into action, and the desire of the enemy is begotten and the result is frustration and utter defeat. The stature of Christ cometh not into being.
This glorious power to overcome is within you and comes from worship. God seeks worshipers (John 4:23), not those who can promote a project for Him, for He is not destitute nor convalescing. All that we do be only a spill-over, an overflow of our communion with Him. Many a people try to walk in truth and these often go by what they call gut instinct (the spirit within). This most often be God though they know it not, it just seems right.
Did you know psychology agrees with the Word? It is the study of the soul – for it to be healthy (It be their large test which agrees), but the individual psychologist himself, knows not how to obtain this. In the scripture it is called sanctification and its the process of the salvation of the soul. Psychology doesn’t carry on beyond the soul though – God does. And if the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you, then you have a tremendous power within to help you.
