"Ye are gods"

Ye are gods”
B, Keith Chadwell                                                                                December 2014 blog

Joh 10:31-36  Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
Jesus answered them; Many good works have I shewed you from my 
Father;for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, 
saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and 
because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. Jesus answered 
them; Is it not written in your law: “I said, Ye are gods ” ?  If he called 
them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be 
broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the 
world, “Thou blasphemest”; because I said, I am the Son of God?

The issue with the Jews was certainly their disbelief and perhaps shock and dismay that any flesh and blood “man” would call himself a “Son of God”.   Today we, who call ourselves Christians, see this as not only very scriptural but it is our testimony.   We generally understand that by faith we are born of the Spirit and also are born of a woman (flesh and blood).  Albeit, we readily admit our Spiritual birth is only the down payment on the full  manifestation which, somehow, is yet to come.

Still,....this is where we run into the same problem the Jews did in John chapter ten;

We have never, yet, fully experienced the reality of a company of fully manifest “Christ in us, the hope of glory” Christians.  Neither had the Jews of John chapter ten ever seen, even one, such until Jesus.  Then Jesus, who had been living among them for years, was manifest to them  and they couldn't or wouldn't accept Him as “Son of God”.   History and tradition can be wonderful, but it can also be the choke chain around the neck of God's people when it comes to anything new that God initiates.

It has been said that;  “familiarity breeds contempt”.  I am thinking that the Jews had a case of contempt for the lowly Jesus who had grown up among them.  How sad it is that even today  “the Christ in us” has become a derision to the world and, sadly, even to some in the body of Christ, who have elevated themselves over the lowly in status, according to man's reckoning. 

Only to those who will humble themselves under the mighty hand of God will He exalt, in His time.

1Pe 5:6  Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

God has provided us with scripture that indicates this “manifestation of the Sons of Godwill happen. There are various views of this; the when, where, how, etc..    At best, we still only know in part.   When it actually happens,  it probably  will be different than most Christians expect.

When this does happen, how will we receive the truth?
As the 5 foolish virgins?  
As the Jews in John chapter ten?
However and whenever this happens, there will be those who will be eagerly praying for and awaiting this  glorious liberation of creation and the manifestation of “The Sons of God”?

I have quoted “the law”, below; from Jesus' reference in John 10:34.  Jesus was simply quoting from Psalms 82:6 when he addressed those Jews who were about to stone Him for saying that He was “the Son of God” :

Johnn 10:34 “ Is it not written in your law: (Psalms 82:6) I said, Ye are gods ” ? 

It is important to note here, that the quote from the law; “I said, ye are gods” was not addressed to the Jews.  According to the scripture text (Psalms 82); “God standeth in the congregation of the mighty, and He judgeth among the gods.”  thus indicating God was talking (Psalms 82:) to a congregation of Angels/gods. (Peshita text/King James Version)
(Job 1:6 and 2:1  will confirm this concept, also)

I have taken the liberty to make some comments for clarification within the text (Psalms 82;).  I have changed the font and font size and clearly indicated the difference between my comments and the text.  Bold, red emphasis and underlines and are mine as well.

Psa 82:1  A Psalm of Asaph. God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods. ( Peshita text: v1 “God stands in the congregation of angels; He judges among the angels”.)
Psa 82:2  (God speaking:)  How long will ye (angels/gods or..principalities and powers 
in the heavenlies) judge unjustly, and accept the persons (H6440 Plural (but 
always used as a singular)  of the wicked ?(H7561; morally wrong; concretely an 
(actively) bad person: -  + condemned, guilty, ungodly, wicked (man), that did wrong.) 
Selah.
Psa 82:3 (God continues speaking to these angels or gods)  Defend the poor and
fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
Psa 82:4  Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the
wicked. (H7561; morally wrong; concretely an (actively) bad
person: -  + condemned, guilty, ungodly, wicked (man), that did wrong.)
Psa 82:5  They (the poor, fatherless, afflicted and needy)  know not, neither
will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the
earth are out of course.
Psa 82:6 (God continues speaking:) I have said, ye are gods; and all of you
are children of the most High.
Psa 82:7  But (because of your wrong judgments) ye shall die like men, and
fall like one of the princes. (see Isaiah 14: )
Psa 82:8  Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all 
nations.

And thus it was written in the law ...and thus is the fulfillment in Jesus
Christ !!

Judgment (all power in heaven and earth) was then given to Jesus.  Jesus,
born of flesh and born of the Spirit.  The Son of God and the Son of 
man. The first of God's new creation.  Jesus, the first fruit of many 
brethren to come.  Jesus the pattern Son of God, who would willingly 
choose to die to the will of the flesh, even to an agonizing, but atoning for 
us, death on a cross.   Jesus, the Son of God, having the Spirit without
measure, only saying and doing those things that were in accordance with
the will of the Father. 

Jesus was the beginning of a totally new heaven and a new earth, a
new culture, a new government, as it were.  Jesus who came to earth 
from heaven to provide God's mankind a way to become partakers of 
God's divine nature and to be participants with Him in a  new and living 
way that had been in the Fathers mind before the foundations of the 
world.  Offered to Adam, rejected, now offered again in Christ Jesus.  
1Co 2:9  
But as it iwritten, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have 
entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared 
for them that love him.

The beginning of a new creation.  Old things had passed away, all things had become new.    A new heaven.....that is; new rule.   Judgment would be taken from His angel Lucifer and the angels/gods that followed him.  Judgment would be given to the Saints.... Daniel prophesied that this would come to pass. (see Daniel 7: )

Jesus, after the cross, resurrection and ascension, was given all power and
authority both in heaven and in earth. Then He in turn gives this judgment
to the saints who will hear and obey as he did.  To those men and women
who by faith would believe and receive and by the blood of the Lamb and
the word of their testimony, overcome the flesh through the work
of the Holy Spirit in them.  Then, in the fullness of time, God knows, these
were to become manifest “Sons of God”, after the Fathers own heart.

Heb 2:1 (ASV) Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things that were heard, lest haply we drift away from them.
Heb 2:2  For if the word spoken through angels proved stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward;
Heb 2:3  how shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation? which having at the first been spoken through the Lord, was confirmed unto us by them that heard;
Heb 2:4  God also bearing witness with them, both by signs and wonders, and by manifold powers, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to his own will.
Heb 2:5  For not unto angels did he subject the world to come, whereof we speak.
Heb 2:6  But one hath somewhere testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? Or the son of man, that thou visitest him?
Heb 2:7  Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; Thou crownedst him with glory and honor, And didst set him over the works of thy hands:
Heb 2:8  Thou didst put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he subjected all things unto him, he left nothing that is not subject to him. But now we see not yet all things subjected to him.
Heb 2:9  But we behold him who hath been made a little lower than the angels, even Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that by the grace of God he should taste of death for every man.
Heb 2:10  For it became him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the author of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
Heb 2:11  For both he that sanctifieth and they that are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,


For these believers, these new creations in Christ; these were to become
joint-heirs with Jesus the Christ both in heaven and in earth.  This new 
rule of God, or government of God, or dominion of the King (Kings-
dominion or Kingdom), was to begin first within their own  wicked hearts.  
A process, not an event.

Thereby, God's mankind begins this process by believing in faith and then
willingly choosing to walk after the Spirit and not after the flesh.  These
who would believe, then hear, and then obey,  were to become partakers of
the Fathers divine nature and in Gods time, grow in the Spirit to become
fully mature and perfected, even unto the stature and measure of Christ. 
How and when, God knows, but then  ready, fully equipped and authorized 
to rule and reign wherever and whenever God might place them, joint heirs
with Jesus.

These  “Sons of God”.  Destined to fulfill  the longing of the
Father's heart to have Sons (of God) who would love him and manifest His
divine nature, even as He loves them.  These new “Sons of
God”, would displace and replace the old angels/gods or principalities and
powers in high places who have been rulers of the darkness of this world.  
Truly, a new heaven and a new earth.  It all started with Jesus for He is 
the beginning and the end of God's plan.

Joh 12:31  Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of
this world be cast out.

Dan 7:26-27  But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his
dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom
and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole
heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High,
whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve
and obey him.

Joh 5:30  I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my
judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the
Father which hath sent me.

Joh 20:21-22  Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my
Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he
breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

1Co 6:2-9  Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if
the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest
matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things
that pertain to this life? Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not 
inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor 
idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with 
mankind,

Php 2:5 -11 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with 
God:  But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a
servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became
obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is
above every name:
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and
things in earth, and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the
glory of God the Father.

The Goal for Christians; (The Vision)

The Goal: (the vision)
B. Keith Chadwell


Christ in you, the hope of Glory”; perfection in Christ or Christ perfected
and manifest in us. Sons of God, perfected, ready to glorify God in
the midst of a crooked and perverse generation. These, having their
obedience fulfilled, ready to serve His Majesty, the King and revenge all
(heaven and earth will be shaken) disobedience at His direction only, even
as it is written.

These will be; A “remnant” of the church, “Sons of God” without need of
further rebuke or correction.  Romans; chapter eight, Jude, Joel, Habakkuk,
Zephaniah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and many others gives us a glimpse
of these “Sons of God” that are to be manifest…or rather have Christ appear
or manifest Himself in them and glorify God, once again, in the earth as Jesus did before.

However, mature Sons of God are made, they are not born, and the “making” is
ONLY the work of God through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit… “His strange work ”.

Isa 28:21 For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act .

1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Heb 12:5-8 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when  thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he
chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.


These Sons of God will have followed the pattern Son, Jesus and they, like
Him, will have learned obedience through the things they have suffered.
The suffering that comes from submitting to the cross the things which are
of the flesh and only through this suffering, as they willingly submit to the
work of the Holy Spirit in them, can they receive the rewards of entering into
the service and complete dominion of His Majesty, the King, as “Manifest Sons of
God”.

Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of  God.

Paul understood and taught that righteousness was first by faith but was to be followed, in time, if pursued correctly, to manifest perfection and maturity in Christ.

Pro 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth
the law, happy is he.

God’s plan is that this perfection would be manifest to the world from servants with totally cleansed hearts.  Yet, even Paul did not claim to have attained to that goal but he knew, by faith, this goal for believers was possible through Christ working in him and he pressed toward that goal.

Phillipians 3:12-16 (Phillips) Yet, my brothers, I do not consider myself to have "arrived", spiritually, nor do I consider myself already perfect. But I keep going on, grasping ever more firmly that purpose for which Christ grasped me.
My brothers, I do not consider myself to have fully grasped it even now.
But I do concentrate on this: I leave the past behind and with hands outstretched to whatever lies ahead I go straight for the goal - my reward
the honour of being called by God in Christ.
All of us who are spiritually adult should set ourselves this sort of ambition, and if at present you cannot see this, yet you will find that this is the attitude which God is leading you to adopt. It is important that we go forward in the light of such truth as we have ourselves attained to.

It is God's goal that we go on, beyond the elementary doctrines of Christ, to
perfection in Christ, in this earth.  Then, Him showing forth His righteousness from within our hearts to a dark and dying world and thereby allowing Christ in us to, in fact, be the manifestation of God's wisdom, power and love to the world, through us.

Creation is waiting for this, full, manifestation of the Sons of God.  It is the hope of our calling in Christ, the hope of glorifying the Father again, in the earth, even as Christ did.

Eph 1:17-19 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may
give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power...

The Controversy...


The Controversy; Flesh vs. Spirit

From the journal notes   of Keith Chadwell
    
    1Co 15:46 ASV; “Howbeit that is not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; then that which is spiritual.”

Beginning many months ago, I started thinking and writing on a subject starting in the Old Testament which chains through to the Spiritual applications in Paul’s writings to the Galatians 4:19-31, etc...  I believe the Lord brought this to my attention and prompted me to delve into it in some detail.  The premise of my study and writing began with this thought; Consider, now, the controversy between the children of the bond woman and the children of the free woman.  So I began to think and study; first about the, NOW, natural situation between the descendants of Ishmael and the descendants of Isaac.  At the same time, I was, also, considering; the; “NOW” spiritual application of this allegory.

There is a natural fulfillment to Bible prophecy, followed by a spiritual fulfillment.  Of course, in his letter to the Galatians; Paul was talking, more, about the Spiritual fulfillment of the allegory he discusses, in Gal. 4:19-31, of Ishmael and Isaac.  In other words; Paul was pointing out the prophetic allegory or metaphor written in the Book of Genesis which was pointing to the Spiritual reality the Church would face of the controversy between the flesh and the spirit.  This is the, very real, conflict that would exist and does exist, today, for all Christians between their fleshly desires (represented by Ishmael) and the desires of the Spirit or will of God (represented by Isaac).

In the allegory, as Paul called it, from Genesis; the bondwoman, Hagar, birthed Ishmael.  Ishmael was Abraham’s first son.  Ishmael was the product of getting ahead of God and natural man trying to help to manifest God’s promise with ways of the flesh and not waiting on the Spirit to do His work in order to bring forth God’s promise.
The other woman, Sarah, birthed Isaac, Abraham’s second son.  Isaac was the child of the freewoman who was “born after the Spirit”.  Isaac was the child God promised to Abraham and was a product of the work of the Spirit, when such a thing seemed impossible in the natural. 
 
Ishmael’s descendants, in the natural, are now, generally, what we know as the Islamic peoples of the Middle East regions.  True to the prophecy regarding Ishmael in Genesis 16:17-12; (below), his descendants were among those who were the enemies of the children of Israel when they crossed the Jordan to take “the promised land”.  (Psalms 83:4-8).   Since then, Ishmael’s descendants, in the natural, have been in bloody controversy with Jews and just about anybody else who won’t agree with them.

Genesis 16:7-12 (Literal translation version); “And the Angel of Jehovah found her by a well of water in the wilderness; by the well in the way of Shur.   And He said, Hagar, Sarai's slave-girl, where did you come from? And where do you go?   And she said, I am fleeing from the face of my mistress, Sarai.
And the Angel of Jehovah said to her, Return to your mistress and submit yourself under her hand. And the Angel of Jehovah said to her, I will exceedingly mulply your seed, so that it shall not be numbered for multitude.
And the Angel of Jehovah said to her, Behold! You are with child and shall bear a son; and you shall call his name Ishmael, because Jehovah has listened to your affliction.
And he shall be a wild ass of a man, his hand against all, and the hand of everyone against him; and he shall live before all his brothers.  (Emphasis is mine)

The point is this; the decedents of Ishmael, in the natural have been true to the prophecy and have been, down through history, like “a wild ass of a man”, their hands against all and the hand of everyone against them…”
And… true to the prophecy, our flesh, like “a wild ass off a man”, has been at war with our Spirit since the Spirit was first given to believers. 

James 4:1 (KJV) From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members ( your flesh)?
James 4:1-10 (CEV) Why do you fight and argue with each other? Isn't it because you are full of selfish desires that fight to control your body?
 You want something you don't have, and you will do anything to get it. You will even kill!
But you still cannot get what you want, and you won't get it by fighting and arguing. You
should pray for it.
 Yet even when you do pray, your prayers are not answered, because you pray just for
selfish reasons.
You people aren't faithful to God! Don't you know that if you love the world, you are
God's enemies? And if you decide to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an 
enemy of God.
 Do you doubt the Scriptures that say, "God truly cares about the Spirit he has put in 
us"?
 In fact, God treats us with even greater kindness, just as the Scriptures say, "God
opposes everyone who is proud, but he is kind to everyone who is humble."

Surrender to God! Resist the devil, and he will run from you.
 Come near to God, and he will come near to you. Clean up your lives, you sinners. Purify
your hearts, you people who can't make up your mind.
Be sad and sorry and weep. Stop laughing and start crying. Be gloomy instead of glad.
 Be humble in the Lord's presence, and he will honor you.”

    Current events in the Middle East, Biblical prophecy, and Current events in the Spirit are all tied together; 1Co 15:46 ASV; “Howbeit that is not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; then that which is spiritual.”

The real considerations are those things hidden by God in this natural allegory, which Paul points out in Galatians, chapter four, that has been playing out in Natural world history, even unto this very day, with parallel fulfillment in the Spirit. 
This allegory from Genesis continues, with lessons for Christians to learn, regarding the controversy between the children of the bondwoman (the flesh) and the children of the free woman (the Spirit).

The Coming of The Lord


"The Coming of the Lord"                 B. Keith Chadwell


 

John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

 

    James 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.
     Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

   Hos 6:1-3  Come,and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we
shall live in his sight. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his
going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the
rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.


Psa 72:6-7 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that
water the earth.  In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of
peace so long as the moon endureth.

“...he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.”

Our Adamic nature, our flesh, surely needs to be submitted to be crucified with
Christ, daily, by our faith in Christ to do that very work in us.  Our part is …
to, humbly, submit ourselves to God.  Our part is to bring every thought captive
to be conformed to the obedience of Christ.

Our part is to work to enter into His Rest and then; 
to cease from our own efforts to be like Him and allow the "Word of God" to do
His work within us.

Then, as we remain in Him and in His rest, we will find; He will, progressively,
change our inner motivations.  Only His work in us can change our "want to", to
conform to His nature.  Only then, we will find ourselves, quite naturally and
from the heart, saying and doing, only those things that are in accordance with
the will of Father God. 

This is the manifestation of the “fruit of the Spirit” (His work in us) and His dominion (Kings-dominion) or Kingdom or rule, within us.   It is a daily, progressive, resurrection unto His new life in us.  How?  We do not know.  However, as seed planted and watered, somehow, through the work of Christ in us, our new nature grows unto the "harvest".


This maturity or " the harvest" is; The full manifestation of the fruit of the
"Seed" which was planted in us as we received Christ, by faith.  The
"incorruptible seed", which, if properly nourished and watered, will progressively
grow and come to full maturity in us.  


Then, will come "the harvest of the ages”.  Then, His righteousness and His
divine nature will be  fully apparent in us.

Then we will be; fully manifest "Sons of God".   "Till we all come in the unity
of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto
the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:" (Ephesians 4:13)


Hag 2:6-7 (NIV)  "This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'In a little while I will once
more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land.
I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this
house with glory,' says the LORD Almighty.


1Jn 3:2  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what
we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for
we shall see him as he is.


“Col 3:4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear
with him in glory.”

This is His work within us, we are to just “REST" and this will be accomplished through... "The Word of God"; which is.....

...”The Sword of the Spirit”, “...which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit...” (Eph.6:17-18)

...”The Word of God”; which comes to us “AS” the rain...

...”The Two edged Sword": (not a carnal weapon but rather a spiritual weapon to slice into the dark recesses of... our hearts. Hebrews 4:12)

He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass...

He shall come down as showers that water the earth.


   Mar 4:26-29 (CVE)  Again Jesus said: God's kingdom is like what happens when a farmer scatters seed in a field. The farmer sleeps at night and is up and around during the day. Yet the seeds keep sprouting and growing, and he doesn't understand how. It is the ground that makes the seeds sprout and grow into plants that produce grain. Then when harvest season comes and the grain is ripe, the farmer cuts it with a sickle.

Jas 5:7  Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold,
the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience
for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

Hos 6:1-3  Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will
heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in
the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Then shall we know,    
if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and
he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.


Isa 55:10-11  For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and
returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and
bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my
word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it
shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I
sent it.


Psa 72:6-7 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that
Water the earth. In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace
so long as the moon endureth.


Rom 14:17  For the kingdom (where the King has dominion) of God is not meat and
drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. (within us)’.


Rom 15:13  Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye
may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.


Gal 5:22 -23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.


“He hath torn, and He will heal us; He hath smitten, and He will bind us up”

Then shall they say; For we see the works of the Father done by you and the
character of the Father in you.  You are truly your Fathers son… Blessed is he
who comes In His name.


Jesus, the “head” of the first born of man and God, the first born of many
brethren… many brethren, immersed into His Spirit, dead to their old nature and
having been, fully,  resurrected in newness of life.  


These will be full Partakers of His divine nature, joint Heirs…with His name, under His dominion, then to rule with power and authority, to rule and reign, in life, in the  earth. 


Then, these “Sons of God” will fulfill the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus; these will   recompense all disobedience and execute the judgments written.  These “Sons of God” are to rule the nations with a rod of iron; doing only those things which are directed or approved of under Christ, their head.  These will rule, in the earth, with Him, with the mind of Christ. 


Then shall be fulfilled the saying…”the Kingdoms of this world are become the Kingdoms of our God and His Christ”.  Then shall the last enemy be conquered and death shall be swallowed up in victory.
