Born As Children of The Kingdom
After all of Heaven has had a chance to hear The Truth proclaimed in the message of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God -- those born again beings that have chosen the Kingdom of God and Christís Lordship over them -- will become His resurrected citizens in His Kingdom.
Then -- Christ will allow them to become the parents of those spirit beings that didnít ever choose to believe The Lie. Those children are born spiritually alive to parents that will guide and care for them as those redeemed from the dead.
We are born into the world in dirt bodies that are a likeness to an Ark that carries us from the dying Kingdom into the Kingdom of the resurrected.
Iím not saying that is the way it happened -- but it certainly makes sense. Here now is another possibility: Father takes a live spirit son (us) before we were born physically and causes him to be born into the dirt body of the earth-man. That spirit-man is the seed of his Father hidden in the kingdoms of the world that Satan stole first from the Lord Christ and then -- again from Adam and Eve.
Then -- at the appointed moment -- our glorious Father awakens that spirit-man with the sound of his Fatherís voice that says: ďJesus is Lord!Ē
(John 1:12 KJV) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
(John 1:13 KJV) Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
That spirit-man is now alive in the grave of the body of dirt that is called by your name. The dirt-man that is of this world and part of the kingdom of Satan is -- all of a sudden -- aware that it is time for him to die to self-rule. Jesus is Lord.
That dirt body is like the Ark that carried Noah into a new world. That Ark looks like a casket floating on the waters of judgement. That Ark looks just like a tomb or casket and yet -- the Lord was present in that Ark. Noah met the Lord in the tomb and that tomb became a womb where a new beginning would come forth.
When the judgement is done -- that Ark settles down on the mountains of a new world. When Noah left that Ark he entered into an all new world. The kingdom of the earlier world was gone and a new world where judgement was past was opened to Noah and his family.
God opens the door of the Ark -- in the likeness of a resurrection -- and calls to Noah to come forth as Jesus called Lazarus from the tomb. He comes forth and in effect -- is like a man walking on the waters of judgement -- as the Lord told Peter to come out of the boat and walk on the water -- so the call to Noah was the same except Noah didnít know all it meant.
Noah didnít see a new kingdom -- all he saw was a fixed up old kingdom and so -- he went and did the same things he used to do.
(Gen 9:20 KJV) And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
The word ďbeganĒ there could be translated: ďto prostitute yourself.Ē Noah turned back to the thinking he had before he went through the flood. It seems impossible that a man could do that after such an experience. It shows us that our initial experience is only the beginning. We have to keep the relationship up and not try to secure our own way by doing our own will.
At that point we are again an example of the two kingdoms present in us. Our spirit-man has been born again and our physical man -- the dirt-man -- is still dead to the things of God. Our spirit-man is buried in the dirt-man (our body) and now wants to rise from the dead in us a new whole man.
So -- our regenerated spirit-man begins to listen for God to bring changes into our lives to leaven it into an example of what the new whole man will look like when we are actually given our glorified bodies at the return of Jesus to the Earth.
As I realize these Truths -- I begin to talk to my body from my new spirit-man. I say in my spirit: Lord -- Thy Kingdom Come in me on Earth as it is in Heaven; Make my body into the man I am in You. When Abraham received the Lordship of Christ into his life -- the Lord said to him: Walk before Me and be perfect. Abrahamís spirit-man was perfect because Abraham had received the righteousness of God as a gift of inheritance.
Now -- the Lord was leading Abraham into places that would make his dirt-man submit to the Lordship of Christ as well. As Abrahamís spirit-man circumcised the dirt (physical man) -- he was showing forth that the dirt-man was cut off and cast into the ground and buried in death. That was the second time that Abrahamís spirit-man made his dirt-man obey the Lord. The first time was when Abraham left Ur of the Chaldees.
As Abraham took Isaac up onto the mountain to offer him up to the will of God -- Abraham lifted the knife over Isaacís head to kill him and at that moment -- Abrahamís dirt-man died to its own will and never rose again.
Just as Jesus asked the Father: If this cup can pass from me let it -- but if not -- Your will be done. When our dirt-man is finally submitted to the will of our Father in all its ways -- that person has arrived to the place where Godís will for them on Earth is complete.
That person is now ready to represent the Kingdom of God on Earth as an ambassador of God. He is good seed that the Father can sow into the Earth. He no longer has a will to be his own lord. He says: Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
After that -- we are to walk out the rest of our lives as men and women that show forth the works of Christ in us to the glory of God in His Kingdom on Earth.
