A little bit of God goes a long way

As an apostle, I see the big picture, and I am concerned with foundations. Much of the confusion in the Christian church stems from lack of a good understanding of the basic precepts of God and a too narrow focus. Moreover, normative Christianity’s over reliance on doctrine prevents people from coming to a true experience of our Father.

Paul writes,

“…we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.  For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.  For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.”

2 Corinthians, 5: 1-5

Paul, among other things, is saying that when we die, we receive an immortal body, a glorified body from heaven. He speaks of the time when God will either resurrect or rapture us and, in a moment, in the twinkling of our eye, clothe us with immortality. Paul also tells us that God gives us an earnest, or down payment, of His Spirit.

The down payment (earnest) of God’s Spirit

It is this “earnest” of the Spirit and it’s ramifications in our lives that I wish to speak about today.

The term ‘earnest’ is just an old English way of saying down payment. It is a portion of the total payment which someone intends to pay. It means they are serious about the purchase and that they promise to pay the balance at a certain time. Th earnest of His Spirit, that we receive when Spirit baptized, is a foretaste of the world to come, the new creation of God, the New Heavens and New Earth. In this place, the Tabernacle of God dwells with men. The knowledge of the glory of the Lord covers the new earth as waters cover the sea on this earth.

Usually, when you make a down payment, you give about 10% of the actual amount, promising to give the rest at a future date. Likewise, God has given us His Holy Spirit by measure now, with a pledge of full payment upon our resurrection and relocation to His New Creation. Thus, when God fills us with His Spirit, we receive a portion, or foretaste, of how life will be in the New Heavens and New Earth.

Fundamental to our understanding of God

God asks that we allow him to speak fundamental understanding to us. He does this so that we can prepare to accept the rest of what God desires to give us. If we desire to know God as He truly is, we must accept Him as He chooses to be. Therefore, if we find that we are not in agreement, we must change our position.

God gave us a foretaste of His Spirit in order to live a supernatural life in this present world. This is why supernatural things can and do happen to us now. Essentially we are experiencing life in this present world based on how things will be in the world to come. This is why we can, through the laying on of hands, heal the sick and raise the dead.

Here is a truth,

We are beginning to experience the New Heavens and New Earth now through the down payment of God’s Spirit in us.

Therefore, we become strangers in a strange land, who act according the customs and norms of another world – we even speak a heavenly language. In the world to come, God governs our relationships by His Holy Spirit. Jesus unites us through supernatural connection. We love, not because of the lust of our eyes, but through the love of His Spirit. People do not enter into marriage contracts in the New Heavens and New Earth. No father gives his daughter in marriage, for something greater than marriage exists.

The kingdom of God is within you

Jesus says,

“Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.” John 18:36 NIV

By this, Jesus meant that His kingdom is not of this earth, but of a world to come. In this present earth He says,

“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

Jesus saves those who ask for salvation. Those who seek the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, He fills. Then, if you seek the Tabernacle Blessing, you will become one with God.

The infilling of God’s Divine Love

In the near future, people will experience the infilling of God’s Divine Love. It will be similar to, and in fact the completion of, the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Nowadays God saves and Spirit-fills people at the same time. Soon, God will save, Spirit- fill and baptized them in His love in one moment of time.

God says,

“Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.  Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.”

Isaiah 66: 7,8

When this happens spiritually, in the church age, people will start behaving not as natural men and women do in this creation, but as spiritual men and women who live in the new creation of God. Therefore, when we receive the Tabernacle Blessing, we become a manifestation the world come. We love as He loves, in purity and righteousness, and not as this world defines it. Our love is from above and we express it any way God chooses, for He is Holy; therefore, we are holy.

As we experience this manifestation, our earthly relationships start to become ordered by our heavenly relationships in the new creation of God. We live by a set of heavenly rules, given to us by our God at the time we need to know them. We walk holy because He is Holy, we love holy, because the Holy One is loving through us. Therefore, we do not need to concern ourselves with what is proper or right, because God defines proper and right.

Do not call God’s freedom blasphemy

To the natural man, who live in a world of fear bounded only by rules, such spiritual freedom seems blasphemous. If we do not police ourselves and allow others to help keep tabs on our sinful nature, how will we survive? The truth is, though, legalism is a failed system that only hides our sin, but does not erase it. Rules are only for rule breakers, while true freedom is for Spirit-led sons and daughters of God.

The Tabernacle Blessing is more than just speaking in other tongues. It is the infilling of the Bride of Christ and, as such, is intimate and sensual. It is little wonder, since speaking in other tongues is located in our tongue that infilling of God’s love is located in our belly.

Out of your belly

What is coming, shortly, is the manifestation of God in our bellies, right at the center of our reproductive organs. The infilling of the Holy Spirit is going to reveal itself in physical sensations, particularly in our male and female places. While this will be as holy and pure as speaking in other tongues, the fact that God is initiating intimate feelings in our bodies is what will both outrage and scare natural minded people.

However, think it not strange that “out of our bellies” flow rivers of living water. Think it not strange that God chooses to dwell in our most intimate places. Count it not wrong that our Father, who made us male and female, takes his rightful seat and dwells in our holy of holies.

God desires His Divine Mate, the Bride of Christ. As the Bride of Christ she will someday consummate this relationship with Him and become His Queen. Furthermore, as we become one with Him, we will bring forth after His Kind. This is the mystery of the church and it is the destiny of all those who truly love Jesus Christ.

Consider these things

I write these things not because they are comfortable, but because they are true. Satan uses church dogma to reject God’s love. God is speaking straight from His throne. God’s people must hear His voice unvarnished by human reason. No one can or should even try to prevent His Bride from making love to Him as He desires.

For those who have ears to hear, let them hear what the Spirit is saying to this generation.

When God decides to move, He often appears to move quickly in our eyes – although His plans are never rushed. And in this current era, He is eager to grant us access to a foretaste of our inheritance: The fulfillment of all the ways He wants to connect to us and bless us. Listen as we discuss both the practical and spiritual aspects of a nation “being born in a day”. . .
