CALL OF THE KINGDOM
THE INNER KINGDOM
The kingdom of God in you is so important, its laws are written in you and are self acting. Actions and their results are the same. "What so ever a man sows, that shall he also reap." The results are not something that the Father executes externally. The results are inherent (within). Sin has punishment alright, for sin and punishment are the same thing. Sin is missing the mark for that which you are inwardly made by our heavenly Father. Missing the mark is just sinning against ones self. This age is now ignorant of that fact. But this revelation will verify itself within Christ's elect shortly.
Christendom has been taught that God will punish us for our sins by some external method. That is theological error. Since no Old Testament thunder, lightening and swift punishment follows mans sins, he thinks nothing is happening. But the judgment has already began, within his soul, mind and character. That is corruption, disharmony, conflicts, fear and disruption within. Someone says, "After you are converted to Christ that cannot happen." Then why did Paul write all his letters to the churches warning the saints about sin? He turned one adulterous Christian over to "Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus." 1 Cor. 5.
Purpose, plan and truth is wrought into the substance of ones life who lives it in Jesus Christ daily. A person doing their own will, breaks down inwardly, he falls apart spiritually in disintegration. One doing the will of the Father, whom the Father is his center, is abiding in life.
With Adam in the garden, destruction began within, not without! Adam didn't partake of anything outside of himself. The "tree" that brought Adam and creation down was within him, and it was passed down through his blood-line. It was the same "tree" that mankind eats from today. As long as mankind continues to eat of that inner "tree," death will hold continue to hold sway over him. That "tree" is within, and the predominant substance of unrighteousness is corruption, and is its own punishment. It is anarchy, bringing chaos, and disintegration and duality. It is the "tree of the knowledge of good and evil."
I speak to the spiritual, when one lives a dual life he cannot be conscious of the sum total of the Life of God in reality and oneness. That one is conscious of cross purposes with creation around him, even with life and himself. The kingdom of God has moral laws written into its spiritual fabric that are unchangeable. Christ is the Life and nature written into the fabric of the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is engraved into the innermost grain of our spirit, soul and body. Christ brings into manifestation the very nature of life and reality of Being, which nature and character is conquering all the earth. His nature and character is being manifest in the Melchezedec priesthood today.
The kingdom of God that is engraved into our being is also engraved into our relationships with each individual. Man cannot invent his own rules in the kingdom of God, and then choose the final results. When one tries that it is like leaping from a ten story window expecting to escape the penalty of such a decision. There are twins today walking roughshod, hand in hand through the land, and they are sin and hell. These twins impose disease, corruption, degradation and disruption of life and personality on those not in a close relationship with Jesus Christ.Where ever they are given dominion, they sow unrighteousness. And unrighteousness has the seeds of it own destruction in it.
The "wages of sin" does not come from without, but corruption from within is the wages, bringing death. The architecture of our inner being was not made for egotism, resentment, hate, guilt and fear. When we accept these into our being, it ends up with spiritual impotence. It is a disease that is mental, moral, spiritual, even entering into the physical. Did not Paul warn that these things come because of not "Discerning the body of the Lord?" And you are His body. 1 Cor. 11. Your inner life is created for God consciousness, love, faith and reconciliation to your fellow men and women, of all walks of life.
In our trying to assimilate sin, it will disrupt and poison our own soul and body. Pure Christ life will tolerate no dualism's. The laws that govern all life has one source, God through Christ. There are no other options. Unrighteousness and its wages is one and the same thing. If we zero in on our self only in our thinking, we will generate civil war within us. We cannot run away from the moral law of the kingdom of god, for that law is graven within. The laws of our being is the moral law of God's kingdom, whose laws are self executing. Scripture says, "What-so-ever a man soweth that shall he also reap." The law of sowing and reaping is the law of the universe.
Our every thought, action or attitude brings either chaos of harmony into our lives. They will bring some degree of harmony or chaos into manifestation. There is nothing on the external that decides which they will produce. The nature of the thought, action or attitude will create the results. This is an inner way. We live in the moral kingdom of our Father and cannot break the laws of it without receiving wages, or rewards. We cannot hurt another in all Father's created world, and not hurt ourselves. Jesus said, "Bless your enemies." That is a kingdom principle. And he said again, "Resist not evil." I can see that I may be stepping on toes, but Jesus stepped on the toes of religious people in His day, and truth does that.
Heaven and hell is not a physical place where we go when your body goes to the grave. They are conditions, and attitudes that you get into right here and now. Jesus said, "I go to prepare a place for you, that where I am there you may be also." Jn. 14. Paul said, "While we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
We are...willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord." 11 Cor. 5: 6, 7.
So many times we are so present in our body, we are absent from the Lord. Beloved, let us be absent from our body and be present with the Lord now. Jesus said, "The kingdom of God is within you." His kingdom laws are not imposed from without, they are engraved in our "hearts and minds," they are written in our very being.
The laws of the kingdom has the "seed" of permanence in them. Leaving God out of ones life is the punishment thereof. It is inner hell, degradation, conflict and deterioration. In evil is the seeds of degradation, and not because God speaks judgment down on it. Modern man has written hell off as non-existent (and hell is not a literal place of torment). Hell is still here in mans innermost being in the form of guilt, fear, inner torment, and conflict. Hell is disruption of life and peace within. Some try to cover up their hell with music, and accusations of others, and also many other things.
The "beast" has engraved his design upon mankind. "The serpent being the most subtle beast of the field," mans heart and mind, was nothing outside of Adam and Eve in the Garden. Gen. 3: 1-6. And neither was the two trees "in the midst of the garden" out side of them. It is the same today, man lets the "beast," "serpent" in his own heart deceive him. That is where most of mankind's problems come from today. Man has visioned it all as being external, and that is indeed the heart of all his problems. Those with a revelation of Jesus Christ are interested in the inner man and spiritual realities.
This day has brought a higher order, that is completely contrary to the order which we have lived in. There is a word of truth and a work that the Father has destined for us to accomplish, and woe to us if we fail as have other generations before us. If we do not handle the Lord's manifestation to our day, and sit idly by, living on what was formerly given, it will be worse than left over manna from another day.
We have rejected nearly all of God's purpose for us in this day, because of Scofield, and Darby dispensationalism saying that the bible promises were for another people and another day.Beloved, our "breasts are girded about with golden girdles," and we are given the "seven golden vials of the seven plagues, to pour out..upon the earth," (earthly believers). WE are girded with Christ's divinity. As the Father reveals truth to us in our spirit we are humbled instruments, "co-workers with God" in conveying His truth as He leads. Our Father loves us so totally, therefore we cherish His nearness. Knowing His nearness and love majestically translates us onto light wherein is no darkness. And all who hunger for Him will experience a glorious change within, a translation that has no duality.
Your perfection in God is a relationship with Him, not because of behavior, but because of Jesus. And His perfection flows within your veins from relationship with Him. "If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin." 1 Jn. 1: 7.
There is a leaping in your breast as you respond to His love. His love lifts you above the realm of the moral laws of the nominal church and its ethical codes. "For the love of Christ constrains us."11 cor. 5: 14. His love is the motive and guide in what ever we do.
If you are in a church of legalistic bondage, that keeps people in its bondage, now is the time for your liberation. Your liberation comes in the nearness of an intimate relationship with Jesus. If you are not in that relationship with Jesus, you do not know what pleases God, and His Spirit does not bear witness to your sonship. Rom. 8: 16. Many feel that they are coming up short of God's acceptance, and are zealously going out to trying to win His approval. But Christ has already won your approval at Calvary. "For God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation." 11 Cor. 5. This "word of reconciliation" of all men has been "committed unto us."He said that God is not "imputing" reckoning "their trespasses unto them."
In every generation the Lord has appeared, but only a few have responded, because it was only a few that He appeared to. And to each that God appeared to, He has accomplished His intended purpose for that period. In this great hour more responsibility is given to us than to any other people in history. All of the Father's promises are for those who hear Him in this move of the Spirit. More of His truth is now entrusted to us today than every generation past. We cannot be as theologians heretofore who have relegated God's promises to future generations. The called out ones now must "become all things to all men," to impart to each spiritually as their needs may be. When we are humbled to the "simplicity that is in Christ," we can impart His word of Grace to the nations. It is by the illumination of the Holy Spirit that we become conscious of the heavenly plane of those to whom we are spiritually joined.
Believers have memorized the scripture, and can tell people how to get saved, and so can Hollywood in its movies, yet are bankrupt for the word of life. Multitudes have sit for hours, week afterweek hearing preachers, but nothing has happened in their lives. The people of god are tired of lifeless preaching that leaves them still in need of spiritual substance. Many are now seeing the selfless will of the Father being fulfilled in you, and they are reaching out to Him for that life that is manifest in you.
Others can see the committed obedience, and the outstanding maturity arising in your life, and the impact of seeing this gives them a deep desire for the same. They want reality in God. The whole planet has witnessed church people who have nothing to convince them that God is alive. It takes that overflowing life of the Spirit of Christ in you to convince them that He loves them too. He has Crowned you with glory and honor. Heb. 2:7. Being fellow heirs of God with Christ, you are the light and anointing of Christ being brought to all the earth. "Arise and shine, for your light is come, and the glory of the lord is arisen upon you." Isaiah 60: 1.
"You shall have no other gods before me." Ex. 20: 3. Oh, how men trespass in trying to know the true God by neglecting the Spirit of God. 1 Cor. 2: 11-14. Men memorize the bible from cover to cover, but do not know the Spirit of the Father. Life is not quoting the bible and talking about scripture. Nor is life the declaration that one in and of themselves are God, as some profess. There are a large number of sick people out there doing just that. They are sick enough spiritually to do that. And it will bring physical sickness on them too. And I have seen enough of them across the country to be convinced of such.
Those who are enlightened by the Holy Spirit can see that the scripture quoted above in Exodus 20, and verse 3 has in all ages perverted the worship of the One True God by choosing other gods before Him. And that through disregarding and dishonoring and not loving God Who gave this command. How many have fallen short of this command of God?All men have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Multitudes have brought their talents, gifts and even ministries before God, making them idols, loving such in preference to the nearness of God.
We must have a love for Him that surpasses all things of the five senses. It is a love relationship that is the perfection you have deemed unattainable, that you are becoming conscious of. Through the crucifixion and ascension you can now realize that you are one with the Lord. "In Him dwelleth all of the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And you are complete in Him (Christ) Which is the Head of all principality and power." Collosians 2: 9, 10.
It is vital to have the consciousness that you are complete in Christ. And not to try to attain that which God has already said that Jesus has attained for us. You are now so utterly in love with the Redeemer Jesus, your Bridegroom, he has caught you up into Himself and made you one in Himself. Now you are conscious of love pulsating out of your heart. His is the perfection flowing as incorruptible life out from within you to all. His perfection radiates divine life through you, and you have no need to work to attain, it is His life attaining a hundredfold. You are now obedient to His still small voice, and your functioning in spiritual reality is attaining enormously the "fruit of the Spirit." Any works that the Father does not initiate is like a house built on sand, and will not stand. But living life in God's will we witness the works of the flesh barren beside Christ's manifest life.
