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.
