“I am pleased with the awakening and arising of My people,” says the Lord God Almighty.

There has been and continues to be now at this time a great underground rumbling in the Spirit, a rumbling of massive Spirit power of love and heavenly fire that is now becoming more intense and is soon to erupt like a volcano, exploding with a power of love that no earthly power can restrain.

The greatness of natural mankind is foolishness to God. Even the foolishness of God is wiser than man. The heart of man without God is filled with the foolishness of corruption. (1 Cor 1:25) (Prov 19:3) (Jere 17:9).

The heart of man with God is filled with the power and wisdom of God. Literally all good things are possible, and nothing is impossible to the people in whom God dwells by Christ Jesus in the Holy Spirit of the LIVING GOD of all creation. (Mark 10:27) (Rom 8:9-11) (John 14:20).

The disorder of spiritual darkness in the hearts of mankind is directly responsible for the disorder of the world. Mankind is designated to be the God-ordained kings and priest to govern the world according to the will and ways of God. (Rev 5:10)

Therefore, that which mankind believes in their hearts, speaks with their mouths, and brings forth in their actions becomes the order of the world whether of the evil of the enemy or of the love and glory God. (Mat 12:34) (Luke 6:45) (Prov 18:21).

Transition to Divine Order

A corrupt order of a form of madness of self-inflicted insanity working in and through mankind has infiltrated and captured the earth and its people. Yes, it began in the book of Genesis with the fall of Adam involving a deceptive pleasant talking serpent that has grown through the history of mankind to be the fiery red dragon of the book of Revelation. (Gen 3:1-6) (Rev 12:3).

The coming of God in Christ Jesus brought the greatest transition of all history. The order of God for this world was in Christ Jesus. The seed of God’s heavenly kingdom order was planted at the cross and raised at the resurrection to live in mankind on Planet Earth.

The indescribable total LOVE of God for this WORLD and HIS PEOPLE is made manifest for all to see in the amazing work of Christ Jesus in and through His people now on earth and yet to come.

Through the sacrificial work of love in Christ Jesus, the transition and transformation of the world began and is now in our day coming into greater fullness in this world.

The enemy is battling fiercely to retain and grow his false rule of evil order on earth. The awakening and arising of the people to the order of God, the kingdom of God, is bringing GREAT FEAR and total panic to the enemy and all the people who are deceived into following him and his false order of darkness.

Today you only need to watch TV news to view the insanity of this current world in conflict between the panicked people of darkness and the awakening people of God.

Do not be misled, this conflict is not just between political parties, human ideologies, or church denominations. All of these and much more are involved, but the real conflict is between the light of the kingdom of God and the darkness of the principality of Satan and all of his demons.

We are awakening to the reality that we are fully involved in the cataclysmic universal reformation of this world. We are a living breathing part of the transformation of this world to the order of God. All things must be returned to the unchallenged fully-restored perfect order of God. It is for this purpose the Lord Christ Jesus came to earth, endured the cross, rose again, ascended into heaven, and returned in the Holy Spirit to indwell and empower us to restore this world to the kingdom of God. Christ in us is the hope of glory to the world. (Col 1:27) (1 Cor 15:24-28).

Special Equipping for Greater Tasks

God is His love and wisdom provides that which is needed to do the job of redeeming and transforming the world to His heavenly order. God sent His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus, to redeem and restore the world. He sent John, the baptizer, to announce the coming of the kingdom and to prepare the way for Jesus, Yeshua Messiah, Savior, King of kings, and Lord of lords of this world.

At the baptism of Jesus, God sent His Spirit to permanently abide in Jesus. Disciples were drawn to Jesus and some were empowered as the original Apostles of the Lamb with Jesus to proclaim and demonstrate the kingdom of God at hand on the earth.

Again today after two thousand years, the stage is set, all thing are now again in place in this our day of the Lord. Our Lord and King, Christ Jesus is alive and well on Planet Earth, abiding within His people with Father God by the Spirit of God incarnate.

In recent centuries this major equipment has been restored in the world layer by layer. In this hour all things are now available to the people of God on earth.

A NEW DAY

The true Spirit reality is now uncovered and revealed to the pure hearts of God’s holy people on earth. The gates of heaven are opened and the love, power, wisdom, and glory of God are flowing into the hearts and lives of His holy vessels on earth.

The great rumbling is within our hearts that are ready to explode with the glory life of Almighty God. The FIRE of God is come to our hearts with all-consuming love and ultimate brightness of the Glory of heaven in Christ on earth.

AS THE NEW COMES THE OLD PASSES AWAY.

In the first century John the Baptizer was the last of the old order of prophets. He represented the old order and spoke of Jesus and the new order when he said in John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease.”

John went on to say, “He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all. 32 And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; and no one [that is earthly] receives His testimony. 33 He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true. 34 For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure. 35 The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand.” John 3:31-35.

Jesus and the first century apostles clearly taught and demonstrated the kingdom of God at hand on earth. The parables of Jesus in the four Gospels is clear teaching of the kingdom of heaven come to earth, how it functions, and how we can now live in the full reality of the kingdom of God now in this life.

The apostles and disciples carried on the spreading of the word and work of the kingdom to the known world at that time. The book of Acts, Hebrews, and the Epistles are filled with their teaching and demonstration of the kingdom of God life on earth. Yes, living in heaven in the afterlife is taught. However, we need to be clear that the emphasis of their teachings are Much More about heaven coming to earth now in this life.

When the church became a religious system around the third century, it left the reality of Christ in His people by the Holy Spirit and devised a manmade system of religious order referring back to some of the old Jewish system along with some pagan ways of earthly-minded man.

We, you and I, and much of the church are the recipients of the past five hundred years of reformation. We are now, in this season, at the place of the ending of the old systems and are fully entering the season of the great transformation of the world to the reality of the kingdom of God.

Our Journey Has Now Become Vertical

Our spiritual eyes and ears are focused upward to the realm of the Spirit and no longer focused horizontally. We cannot stop and cannot look back or down. Behind us is a wasteland and ahead of us a beautiful garden of the exciting ecstasy of peace and pure love in the glory of God.

We will not focus on the world that was as it passes away by the fire of the glory of God. We must plow the earth with King Jesus upon the power of the Spirit horses transforming the world to the kingdom of our God. All things must culminate in Christ Jesus and nothing remain on earth that is not under His feet. There is no equal precedent for this season that has come upon us.

All of the shadows and pictures of the past and even the direct warnings of scripture will come to pass in this season of great transition of Planet Earth.

Please here this word from the heart of God.

We must not hold on to the past and cannot look back or even to the side at the world that was and is now passing away. Our victory and endurance is totally dependent upon continuing to look upon and abide in only that which comes from above.

We will continue to move upward into the absolute glory and unspeakable joy of the Lord in the dynamic brilliant presence of being one with Him in the time of the fullness of His glory of heaven on earth. And so shall we ever be with the Lord.

“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Luke 12:32.

Jesus, as God’s pattern Son, has been placed before us by the Father, that we might likewise become even as He was while on earth. That is, for humanity to become even as purposed by God, a spiritually mature creation. This is saying that Christ’ body of people, the remnant of God, is to progressively and spiritually mature into the pattern Son.

This speaks to us of the need to move beyond the realms or orders of carnal man and his religious philosophies, rituals and programs. This points and declares that mans need is to seek God first. To receive an anointing to fulfill the ministry of the Christ (head and body) concerning God’s kingdom from within.

Matt. 4:23 states, “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people”.

Let us consider that God’s primary dealings among the children of Israel were from a natural standpoint to a natural minded people. Even today, God’s basic purpose among the church is to continue meeting the needs of natural man’s makeup because man is still subject to sin, sickness and disease. That is, a knowing that the needs that exist among them results as sickness and disease continue to affect the realm of the church.

Meanwhile, the ministry of the gospel of the kingdom is purposed to prepare a people, God’s remnant, to inherit the spiritual fullness of God’s eternal purpose. This purpose is to establish God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. God’s desire is to prepare His temple (His body of people) for His dwelling place. His people are to be His temple, which is the dwelling place of His glory and rest.

The existing need that continues among the Christian communities church orders of today is, to receive a revelation of God’s glorious kingdom. A revelation, which reveals the need to move from the in-part realm of the church into the fullness of Christ, His kingdom.

Peter states clearly that there is a need for man to receive and administrate, under Christ, this glorious kingdom of God. God’s kingdom is not purposed to be administrated by the carnal church orders as we have known it today.

But, God’s descending kingdom will only be administered by those who manifest the throne-room order of the Holy of Holies. “Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us, they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.” 1 Peter 1:12.

Those things revealed, as stated in the above scripture, declare of things unveiled and visible to the spiritual eye and then to be ministered. Thus, the need to see, receive and become. By the becoming thereof, the enablement is to announce a joyful message having regard to the matter announced. The enablement is that of the Holy Spirit, the power from on high, which includes all the gifts that come with Him as He came from God.

Friends, does this requirement, as coming from God, encourage us to move beyond the normal comfortable rituals of today’s lukewarm church to become firebrands for the sake of God’s kingdom? That is, to become that for which God has purposed for this generation, this time and season which declares that the kingdom of God is come. “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard Him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will”. Heb. 2:3-4.

Again, let’s consider this truth; while the church, is experiencing a time of having great needs, it becomes necessary for them to not only see Him, but to become God’s witness. That is witnesses of His signs, wonders and miracles that are to touch the minds and bodies of the rest of humanity.

Included among these mighty manifestations in the natural realm, the greater need and eternal manifestation is of a soul restored into that, which had a beginning in and from God. That is, a “living-soul”, a vessel that now stands in God’s presence unashamed, manifesting the nature of Christ unto all the earth.

This speaks to us of a people moving beyond the natural realms of carnal man’s thinking into the spiritual realms of God so the “fullness of times” might appear from within them.

This appearing is to establish God’s eternal kingdom, which is His nature in man here on the earth. “…Our Father which art in heaven [invisible realm], hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in earth [visible realm] as it is in heaven”. Matt. 6:9-10.

The key for humanity, that which opens for man the heavenlies, is the resurrection of a dead fallen soul back into that “living-soul” as it came forth from God in the beginning.

Heb. 2:4, as stated above speaks of signs, wonders and divers miracles along with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Herein, these gifts are made available to God’s remnant people and are a power source that not only changes a vessel but also enables that same vessel to release the needed changes unto the world around about him.

While the gifts of the Holy Spirit anoint the vessel and releases him into manifesting the supernatural, meanwhile sicknesses and diseases of the natural man’s body continue. But only until a knowing that a greater than this in-part ministry is now among us. This is saying to us that the coming forth of a people through the processes of progressive change has come.

These changed people are now being resurrected in their soul to manifest the nature of Christ. This means that the remnant of God’s first-fruits harvest is now able to respond to and manifest the will, the mind, the emotions and the desires of God only. They shall no longer be bound to the fallen dead soul of the natural carnal man realm, but they are being resurrected into the throne-room authority of God, even as the first born son, who is now seated with the Father in His throne. “To him that overcomes [the fallen soul, the sin nature, the desires of the flesh] will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in His throne”. Rev. 3:21.

Unto these overcomers, along with the Apostle Paul there has been laid up for them a crown of righteousness. It is through these overcomers that the kingdom of God will flow from within their soul as a mighty river of life. A people who are no longer satisfied with the natural expressions of the natural orders of man, but are now enabled to express and manifest the supernatural nature of God from within.

“For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. Now he which established us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts [the living soul]”. 2 Cor. 1:20-22.

This speaks of a God that has purposed and promised unto a people, that by the Spirits indwelling within, He resurrects our hearts, our souls, to a time of being sealed. Herein the operation of this Holy Spirit has pledged to bring forth the fulfillment of these promises.

Can we the people of this generation, a remnant of this day, hear the call of God to come forth? Is God not willing to release revelation concerning His mysteries for the fulfilling of each mystery?

This is a people who are coming into this knowing that the “fullness of times” is upon them, a time to come forth into the full measure of their inheritance and the manifested nature of God into their earth, their bodies.

Eph. 1:9-14 states, “Having made known unto us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He hath purposed in Himself; in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth; even in Him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him Who works all things after the counsel of His own will: That we should be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: In whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory”.

The earnest, the pledge by God given unto us is as we receive the gift of the new nature. This pledge of God’s gift differs from any ordinary pledge. That is to say, this is the coming forth of our inheritance, obtaining all that Jesus Christ has purchased for us.

Thus, a people are coming forth that are to fulfill the prayer of Jesus Christ when He asked the Father to restore back to Him the glory which He had in the Father before the beginning of mankind. This glory is a glory of like kind that is also to be manifest through Christ body.

Has the fullness of times come? Is it now upon us? If it is upon us, then the purchased possession is now to become ours, in Him, so that His glory is now in us. That is to say, that which is of the heavens, the fruit of the Christ seed planted within, is to come forth in the earth, our bodies as the manifest sons of God’s kingdom.

Therefore, come forth young men come forth. Is it not time to establish God’s kingdom on the earth?

3. Ern Baxter’s Audio Teaching Series “Where are we Going?”

This teaching carries a prophetic urgency for Christians as they face an increasingly hostile humanistic culture. It gives the biblical foundation for faith in the certainty of God’s unchanging nature and purpose, recovering the true dimension of the Church’s destiny in the earth. As such, it provides the basis for the re-education of our heart and mind in the revelation of Christ’s victory and Lordship in history over all nations and peoples. It carries the impetus for recovering the Christian mandate to press the crown rights of Christ in every sphere of life and culture.Lifemessage
