The Day of the Lord Part Two
The Most High does not observe 40 year periods, 40 month periods any longer. Under the Old Covenant, He surely did. Now we are come unto a New Covenant Day when Father does things in the Spirit where "time" as man sees it, is of no essence. "A thousand years is as a day and a day as a thousand years with the Lord." For some this is very difficult, but we are speaking of The Day Of The Lord. What is the Day of the Lord? It is the 'lightening shining from the east to the west, so shall the coming of the Son of man be." Then when lightning is shown it is shown in the darkness and God called the "light day" and He called the "darkness night." In Col. 1: 12, 13, "Giving thanks unto the Father, which has made us meet (qualified us, or made us competent) to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the LIGHT. Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love."
When Jesus was speaking of the day of the Lord, He was speaking of people coming out of the darkness into the light of the Father. When Adam fell is was from a light body ( Shining One) into the flesh body of darkness! Now through Christ our "innerman" is entering back into the "Father of Light."
"I would not have you ignorant, brothers, concerning those which are asleep, that you sorrow not, as others do which have no hope.
For if we believe that Jesus rose again, even to them also that sleep in Jesus God will bring with him." 1 Thess. 4: 13, 14.
He is not talking about natural things here. He is not talking about cemeteries. He is talking to believers about those who have passed on into the invisible, even the Old Testament patriarchs too; how they were going to come into this glorious light of salvation when they lived at a time when there was no "justification," as there is today under Christ's atonement. He is saying that you don't have to worry about the saints of the past. If you believe that Jesus died and rose again, they that sleep, or slept in Jesus have risen with Christ.
You see when Christ died, He went into death, of Hades and brought the ones who "were in prison." 1 Pet. 3:19, 20, 4: 6. He preached the Gospel to those of olden times who were great sinners, and "led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men, yea for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them." Psalm 68: 18, Eph. 4:8.
Listen to Paul, "For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming (presence) of the Lord shall not precede those which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven (not geographically) with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God (God's voice-Christ): and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds (all saints of past ages Heb. 12:1) to meet the Lord in the air (spirit): and so shall we always be with the Lord." 1 Thess. 4: 15-17.
Paul is basically saying here that those who went before "rose first." Now we which are alive and remain (in Christ), we are caught up with them in the same place in the Spirit. He is trying to tell them that there is a great "catching up." He said we shall be caught up together with them in the "clouds." Dear ones, this is not natural clouds that hover over the earth. Even as on the mount of transfiguration when a cloud appeared, it meant something spiritual.
In the 11th chapter of Hebrews, he mentions the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses and many others of great faith in God under the Old Covenant. Then opens the 12th chapter saying: "We also are compassed about with so great cloud of witnesses..." This was not rain clouds in the sky. He was speaking of spiritual clouds, the "clouds of witnesses."
Remember Jesus ascending in Acts one, the Bible said: "A cloud received him out of their sight." Could it be the same cloud of witnesses spoken of in Revelation 1, "Behold he cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see him.?"
Spiritually we are caught up together in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. The word "air" does not mean the sky. It is the same word used for "breath," "wind," "life," or 'spirit." We are caught up together with them in the spirit. Beloved, this is getting more and more exciting all the time, for Father is bringing new life to us.
Christ is comes to us to us personally and individually to steal us away from the carnal realm in spirit as a thief in the night. Just as Jesus told symbolically of the "five wise and five foolish virgins." He tells of the Bridegroom coming at midnight. And why midnight? It tells how beautifully Christ comes into our lives. There is something different about midnight as I wrote in 1998.
Midnight is that space between two days. The Old and the New! But it is the beginning of a brand New Day, the Day of the Lord to you and I. "Brethren you are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as thief. You are the children of the light, and the children of the day: We are not of the night, nor of darkness." 1 Thess. 5: 4, 5..
Notice, we are not in darkness--that that day should overtake you-you are not without God. You are in the day time--LIGHT CONSCIOUSNESS. You are the children of the light (truth). Sons of light in a darkened world! We are sons of light in the Day of the Lord. We can rejoice that we are not in the darkness
nor night. The Lord comes as a thief in the night time, and brings us into day light. Darkness is of time, light is eternal!"God is light a and in him is no darkness at all." 1 John 1:5. Our Father clothes us in the light of Himself. Therefore we don't walk in darkness. "He that loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no darkness at all." 1 John 2:10.
Christ shines in our life as lightning shines from the east to the west, so shall the coming of the Son of man be. He shines in us and we begin to see those things which are in darkness, now they are made manifest unto us.
"And the city (New Jerusalem which we the redeemed are) had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it; for the glory of God and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it; and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it. And the gates of it are not to be shut at all by DAY: for there shall be no night there." Rev. 21: 23-25.
The city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon to shine in it. Some have said the sun and moon is the "law and prophets, and some said they are the Old and New Testament's. Beloved, this speaks of the "Lord's Day." For He is the "Light, and in us there is no night! We have no need of any substitute. No night in this City. No carnal mind in the City of God, for the carnal mind is darkness. Remember Jesus said, "These shall be cast into outer darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth." The outer mind is darkness indeed, and glories in fantasy of its darkness and vanity.
"And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither the light of the sun; for the Lord God gives them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever." Rev.22: 3-5. Here it is no longer that we live, but Him. Didn't Jesus say: "He that loses his life (soul life) for my sake shall find it." Matt. 10.
It is no longer I but Christ, even as Paul, our old man identity has disappeared Gal. 2:20. And we are clothed in the illuminate Father and the Lamb light. He is our New Day garment of brightness, that no man can approach unto. 1 Tim. 6:16.
This day of the Lord cannot be traced on anyone's time chart. It is not a date on the calendar, or anything you can read on anybody's numbers game! They will mislead you. We can't go looking at numbers, charts, calendars and time slots. We must let our Father draw us near Him, and have our heart and mind stayed on Him for His enlightenment today, for it is not in the history, but in the mystery. Here is a secret: The greatest of all mysteries is, God lives in mankind. It is the secret hidden from ages and generations, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Col. 1:26,27. And Christians today with all their ministries, churches, Seminaries and Bibles are still in the dark on this. Look deep into your own heart and you will find the Father Almighty and the Lamb giving you divine light for every step you take.
The "Lion of the tribe of Judah" will crush all the traditional teachings of the church system that is offensive to Father's nature. He has always called out a new breed of saviors unto Himself by revelation to initiate a new order of experiential consciousness in His Son. We are summoned to join the angels and, "Thrust in the sickle the harvest of the earth is ripe." We are centuries removed from the first centuries disciples of Jesus, and the Spirit is beckoning us into a newer method of spiritual functioning by revelation, and the power of the Holy Spirit. This new day order requires the "garment" (cover) of Jesus Lordship to function in the "order of Melchesedek king priest nation.
We have been raised from the dead, translated and are sit down together with Christ in His throne at the right hand of the Father. Col. 3:1-3, 1:13, Eph. 2:6. We are conscious of our true spiritual identity in Jesus Lordship. Under the antichrist teachings of the past we had a dual image of our true spiritual identity in Christ. Like the Prodigal son, "he came to himself." Luke 15: 17. But back in the "Father's house" all our old self image is annihilated. We now realize our "oneness in the Lord." This is the day that all kindred's of the earth shall bow to Jesus name, confessing Him Lord, giving glory to the Father. Phil. 2:10, 11.
Jesus Christ in the Father, and we in Him John 14:20, are not as in the past, giving the world a dual image of our self life. He is our whole reality and being. Father is in the process of filling the whole universe with Himself. That sounds like a misnomer, for He is everywhere, but all are not conscious of Him yet. This is the day of the Lord's exaltation, "The Lord's Day." His people cannot lose the lower consciousness of dual identity while still in the lower dimensions of traditional church order. "The old wine skins' reject this "New Wine," calling it false doctrine!
Father has always hid His transforming revelations behind the darkened veils of parables, "That seeing they might see and not perceive, and hearing they might hear and not understand." There is a precious anointing upon-within the Father's sons. Our spiritual taste buds have changed
and yesterday's manna will taste stale today. What a feast we have at our Father's table today. He delights us with the splendor and awe of His nearness. We are included and partakers of the boundless, inexhaustible resurrection glory of the "Lord of hosts." You are "heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ."
Beloved, ones spiritual disability can be only be healed by letting new learning and understanding clear away the traditional maze from our former learning! This new learning goes further than water baptism, Sunday school, and crusading for the poor. It is of a greater spiritual dimension than being intellectually wholesome in religious teachings. It will unclutter ones mind of New Age disability-possibility fables, of "Satan's ministers transforming themselves into ministers of righteousness whose end shall be according to their works." 2 Cor. 12: 13-15. Their works are deception, so are their end!
We all have to have our own built in spiritual electrical power plant to under stand and function in our Father, and receive His vital thoughts. if one is lacking this vital connection with the Person of Father on higher plane of operation, it is impossible to understand how He deals with His people non-physically. Those wanting death to reign, rejoice in the "old wine" of the past and grumble, looking unhappy at the present unfolding's of "Present Truth." The unenlightened call this delusions, bunco and other antichrist reactions.
This massive giant on the move across the earth today called, "the sons of God" "filling all in all, far above principalities, powers and might is that "Little stone cut out of the mountain (religious) without hands that struck the image (the religious image of LIES) on its feet. Dan: 2: 34, 35, 45. Your place is in the Father, clothed in His majesty and splendor! vlothed in Himself and His oneness. This is the New Day of the Father and Son's fulfillment of incorruptible spiritual advancement for His body. 2 Pet.1:19. The "Day Star" has risen in your hearts, and you are become "Day Stars." The Day Star is a Sun, His brilliance outshines corruptible flesh, for He is "A Consuming Fire." In His eneffable greatness He has so much more for us to behold than His incarnate form. But having given us His Spirit, we commune and associate with Him in His high Spirit level and majesty, becoming "as he is" as "we see Him as He is." 1 John 3:2.
What He is revealing to us goes so much farther than wearing our dimly-lit garments of Pentecost, as great as that is, it only girded our loins with partial truth! 1 Cor. 13: 8-12. Father is calling us to "put on" the complete "wedding garment" which is Christ Himself, that we may walk in the "Bridegroom" dimension. Did you know that the sons who participate in that order will marry their mother, the church? Isaiah 62: 5. God spoke to the New Jerusalem church that "Thy sons shall marry thee." didn't Jesus marry His mother Mary on the Day of Pentecost? Acts 2: 4. This is non-physical, pure spirit.
It is on this earthly plane that we put on His greatness-THOUGH HUMILITATION precedes glory! Jesus revealed your glory nature on the mount of transfiguration, and it is waiting to be revealed. 1 Pet. 1:4, 5, 2 Cor. 5: 1-5. We are sealed and engraved with the mark of our Father's holy name. And our hearts are aflame for Him, breathing out burning love to Him.
"The nations shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory: and you shall be called by a new name, which the Lord shall name.
You shall be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. You shall no more be termed forsaken; neither shall your land be termed desolate; but you shall be called: my delight is in her, and your land shall be married. For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you: and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you." Isaiah 62: 2-5.
Beloved, is not New Jerusalem the sum total of all her inhabitants? And is not the Bridegroom the sub total of all those married to the Lamb? They are ONE SPIRIT! Beloved, Christ is uncreated Life, and His life is flowing in your veins. He said, "In that day you shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you." John 14:20.
We are One in Him who is One. He says to those who: "Minister in... the innercourt, and within, "They shall come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me...they shall come near my table, to minister unto me, and they shall keep my charge...When they enter in at my gates of the inner court, they shall be clothed with linen garments;...when they minister in...the inner court, and within." Ezek.44: 15-17.
The Father has chosen you for this grandest Day to be clothed upon with Himself. How He delights us with being in the magnificence of union with Him. All the religious heavens we have been in is the works of our God. Heb. 1:10. "They shall perish; But you remain; and they shall all wax old as does a garment.
"And as a vesture you shall fold them up, and they shall be changed: but you are the same, and your years shall not fail." Heb. 1:10.
Yes, our "old heavens" are perishing (spiritual), they have waxed old as a garment, and as a vesture He is folding them up, and they are changing. He must take away the old to establish the New, and that is in you. it happened to Martin Luther a few centuries ago. God took his old heaven away, and established him in the new. We know that we have been established in the New Jerusalem as the "temple of God." Yet, John looked beyond that in the Spirit, he said: "I saw no temple therein (New Jerusalem-spiritual), for the Lord God and the Lamb are the temple of it." Rev. 21:22.
Beloved, the old boundaries are giving way to the New. Boundaries that were prohibitive are yielding to the Spirit word spoken by a Christed priest hood whom the Father has handed His golden sceptre of the kingdom. The sevenfold radiations of the Spirit energizes us to meet every crisis on this new frontier of the Day of the Lord, this day of Father and Son's Magnificence. Don't you love Him? What a Day on His new frontier for us! Be glad all you sons and daughters of our Father, " You are "Fearfully and wonderfully Made."
