I had a spiritual experience which brought me to tears, I was crying like a baby. I was so touched by the Lord. I was reviewing the Alternate Translation 1 Corinthians 11, and I came to a footnote which read, Only one nature can appear, at any one point in time. Either Christ Jesus or the First Adam dies each and every time we have a thought, show an attitude or speak a word. When the scripture or I talk about the sacrifice of Christ, we have sacrificed Christ in ourselves when we agree with our carnal mind.
Christ dies a little bit every time we choose the opinion of our carnal mind over Christ. It fits in with this footnote. Only one nature can appear at any one point in time. Either Christ Jesus or the First Adam dies each and every time we have a thought. We agree with Christ, it kills the First Adam. If we agree with the First Adam, which is our carnal mind it kills Christ. Every time we have a thought, show an attitude, or speak a word. In that footnote I gave you a reference, 2 Corinthians 4:10-11.
2 Cor 4:10-12
10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the light also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you. KJV
Verse 12, is the scripture which has puzzled me for years. It sounds like Paul is mocking the Corinthians. So then death worketh in us…, we the Apostles, but you are the ones that have life. I perceived it as a mocking, and I wondered about it. I am not really sure that is what he is saying, although I would have to look at it in the Interlinear text. I could not understand why. It does fit in with my present understanding of the problem he has with them today.
Which nature is appearing through us? Is it the nature of the First Adam, who was of the earth? Earthy, which means he is carnal. Or is it of the second man, who is spiritual, which is Christ in you, the spiritual man. Christ is the seed and Christ Jesus, the man that grows up out of him.
Every thought you think, every word you say is from one of the two lives. One of the two men inside of you. Even if they both speak simultaneously, it is still two thoughts, you have to choose one thought. I can say something to you, and then change my mind immediately. I said something out of my old man, and Christ Jesus rises up and corrects me, and I correct it right on the spot. We have two men inside of us. We have two spiritual men inside of us. One is the old man that brought us into existence. He is from the earth and he is carnal. He is the man that is branded with the sin nature he received when he was seduced in the garden, and died to his immortality. Then there is the other man. The resurrected Christ Jesus, who has the ability to save us.
We are the clay vessel. We are made of clay. The only reason we are a sons of God is because the Son of God is dwelling in us, and living his life through us. We are clay, and we are whatever the life inside of us molds us to me. If you want to be a son of God, you need to go to ground zero and understand you are nothing buy clay. You are clay that can have an image engraved in it. If you are a son of God, it is because the Son of God is dwelling in you. In the same manner, the First Adam can dwell in you and change your nature. Take some water and smooth out the clay. Change your nature from the fallen nature, which is evil towards God, to Adam. You are the clay vessel. There are two men inside of us trying to engrave us with their nature.
The challenge Jehovah gave Adam in the garden. He said, Go and name the animals. There were no giraffes, tigers or kangaroos at that time. Jehovah said, Go and name the animal, we are the bohemia, the beast, the cattle. The human beings engage in esoteric doctrine and belong to the secret societies, call themselves elite. They think they are higher than rest of humanity. They call us the herd. Why do they call us the herd? Because they have birthed a spiritual child, and his name is Lucifer. They are of the highest spiritual order than the common man who has not birthed a spiritual child.
19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. KJV
The elites of the world, are getting ready to put down the rebellion of the common man. They think they have the right to rule over us because they are of a spiritual order higher than we are. I am not talking about us that have Christ in us. Very few in the church have Christ them. I am talking about the average human. The elites are of a higher order than the rest of humanity, which even the Bible calls the herd with the bohemia. How can they be of a higher order, they look just like we do? They are of a spiritual higher order. They have birthed a spiritual child. The child of Sophia, and his name is Lucifer. The human beings that have birthed a spiritual child, are the Second Adam. They are of a higher order than the First Adam.
There are two Second Adams. There are two spiritual powers bringing forth the creation. Parallel creations, only one can prevail. It is an anomaly, a paradox. There cannot be two men created by two different spiritual authorities. Only one can survive. One will be left, and one will be taken. Only one can survive. One must be deleted.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left KJV
There are at least two orders of human existence that I am aware of at this time. The people that have birthed a spiritual child, which are the Second Adam, and the people who have birthed a spiritual child, which are of the First Adam of the earth, earthy. If you have Christ Jesus, those two men are inside of you. You, the vessel, have to decide which one you are going to marry. Which one you are going to sleep with, or which one you are going to be intimate with. You have to decide whose nature you will reveal in your thought, words and deeds. Resisting Christ within you is embracing, for all intense and purposes, Lucifer. There is nothing in between.
If you are spiritually pregnant, and you would prefer to not be pregnant, you are working against the operation of the spiritual fetus in you called Christ. If you succeed in working against him, you then are open grabs for Sophia, who will impregnate you with Lucifer. You will not be free very long, if at all.
That was the first plague when Jehovah wanted to take the Hebrew children out of Egypt. The first plague was blood. He aborted the fetus of the Egyptian religion called Horace. He aborted Horace in all of the Hebrew children, and blood flowed in Egypt. In spiritual Egypt. Blood flowed and then the following plagues, which were frog, and lice, and flies and things of that sort. Those were all of the demonic entities that tormented the Hebrew children because they were not defended by a spiritual child.
The scripture says that Jehovah promises to not put the diseases of the Egyptians upon us. When the Hebrew children lost their defense, the spiritual fetus of Horace, they became subject to all the demons that are present in this spiritual universe. Then Jehovah proceeded to give the Hebrew children the law so he could purify them to the degree it would be possible to implant his own seed in them.
26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee. KJV
The final plague was the death of the first born, which is the death of the fallen nature. The process was not completed in Egypt, because the fallen nature was not destroyed in Israel. First in the natural, and then in the spiritual. Jehovah’s work in Israel, in spiritual Israel, will culminate with the death of the First Adam, our fallen nature, and we will be fully possessed by Christ Jesus and sinless. That is what we are talking about.
5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts. KJV
I read 2 Timothy 10. But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death. Brethren, death is abolished. The church goes from day to day preaching the salvation message, singing their songs, but we are still dying.
2 Tim 1:10
10 But it is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death.” KJV
I gave you that testimony recently. I was literally dying, and I was in a service where people were jumping and dancing and banging their tambourines, and I was not doing well that day, could not get up off the pew. That scripture was preached in that service, But if you had the spirit that raised Christ from the dead, it shall quicken your mortal body.
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. KJV
I said Lord, I am not quickened. No one in the church is asking the question, how come you are still dying? Because they have been fed a lie that you die, but then you are really alive in some other place somewhere, on streets of gold, with your own mansion. I said to the Lord, that I am still dying. I do not want a mansion on the other side and streets of gold. I want to live here. My bible says death is the last enemy, and is to be defeated.
1 Cor 15:26
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death KJV
The Lord spoke to me clearly in an audible voice. He said, “That is the Holy Spirit that is making them dance and sing and bang their tambourines. It is the Holy Spirit. It is not the spirit that raised Christ from the dead. The spirit that is in the church when you see them singing and dancing and banging their tambourines is a good spirit. That is not the spirit that raised Christ from the dead. It was a spirit from a higher place, called the Spirit of Christ, and it is not here yet.”
We are waiting for the Spirit of Christ to descend into our world, and join with Christ Jesus within us. The spirit of life, which is in Christ Jesus. The spirit that raised Christ from the dead is the spirit of life, which is in Christ Jesus. Not the Holy Spirit, which is a manifestation of the human. It is a manifestation of the human spirit that has been pierced by the Spirit of Christ. The Spirit of Christ does not remain. The Spirit of Christ pierces the human spirit, and deposits a seed, and withdraws. The spirit of Christ is the whole spirit of life. The spirit life, which means your body stops dying and you have the ability to raise others from the dead. The Holy Spirit is different. Different spirit, different degree of authority.
2 Timothy 1:10
10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: KJV
Death is abolished. People should be running around and dancing but they are not. Why are they not jumping around saying Hallelujah? Because everybody is still dying. Everybody is still sick. If you got a supernatural healing, then you get something else. People are just in a spiritual stupor believing this promised life comes after physical death. It is a lie.
Jesus has abolished death. We have to find out how to lay hold of this promise. It is for whoever asks for it. If you do your part. Nobody would refuse the opportunity to strive to enter into this promise. Once you get hold of the weapon, you have to use it. He that overcometh, are the promises to the churches in the book of Revelation.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. KJV
But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. He has abolished death. He has made it possible for all of humanity to understand these mysteries of life and death and immortality. He explains it all in the gospel. We can visit a thousand churches, and I do not think we would hear anybody explaining about life, and death, and immortality, and how we attain it.
Then I went to Hebrews 2:9 and that was the message. Not whether you are going to wake up in Heaven or Hell when you die. That is not the message. How do we get this immortality? What is life and death? I thought this was life. No, it is death. How come? What does it mean? When you look at the church, you do not know whether to cry or be angry. What has happened to this glorious gospel? It is not being taught.
9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. KJV
What the church teaches is, because Jesus died, you do not have to die. You just have to make it through this lifetime. Then when your number is up, you should not resist death, because on the other side you are going to be OK because Jesus tasted death for you. I have an Alternate Translation of that scripture and it brought me to tears. The Spirit fell on me with this Alternate Translation.
I had a new assignment for the rabbi who I have a relationship with. He had agreed to meet with me from time to time. He asked me a question that I couldn’t answer. This Alternate Translation answers the rabbi’s question of a year and a half ago, see. I never forget a question which I do not know the answer to. The Lord never forgets a question you ask. If He does not answer you right away, it is because He has to teach you other things first, or you are not capable of understanding. Sometimes He does answer you but you do not hear Him, or you do not believe that it is Him.
The rabbi asked me a question and I could not answer him. It was a legitimate question. It was a passionate question from a man who does not believe Jesus is Messiah. A man who believes that Christians have persecuted and killed thousands, if not millions of Jews. This was his question. Why him? Why him? Meaning, why Jesus, why not Moses. Why not Elijah? Why not one of the great heroes of the scripture? Why not Sampson? Why him? I couldn’t answer his question. Today I have the answer to his question. I have to ask him for another meeting, because the answer to the question is: God chose Jesus because he was insignificant. He chose Jesus to prove that what Jesus experienced, we can all experience. He did not choose a great man of God. He did not choose a hero of the Bible. He did not choose a spiritual giant. He chose an insignificant man, and that is what Paul is saying in Hebrews 2:9.
Insignificant is a translation of the word little, but we see Jesus who was made a little lower than the angels. No, no, no. We see Jesus an insignificant person. The English word “A” is a translation of Strong 5100, and it means a person. It is translated in the indefinite article, “A”, but it really means a person. It is a general term meaning anyone. Though we see Jesus, an insignificant person, who was suffering the hardship of death. The definition of death is separation from God. Jesus’ spiritual status in the earth was lower that the angels and everyone that is lower than the angels dies. There was nothing special about him. He was everyman. He was carried up to the crown energy center by the Shekinah, the divine influence, where he received the same mind and reputation, which is a translation of honor. It was carried up to the crown energy center at the top of his head that he received the mind of God and the same reputation of God. What reputation? Death has no power over him. He was in a condition that was lower than the angels, and now he is in a condition where he can swallow up death for the whole Adam. For the many souls of the Fallen Adam.
But we see Jesus, made a little lower than the angels so that he could suffer the pains of death [after] the divine influence of God [carried him up] to the crown [energy center, where he received] the same mind and reputation as God [concerning] death
But we see that Jesus, an insignificant (little) person (a=5100) who was suffering the hardship of death [which is separation from] God, [because] his spiritual status was lower than the angels, was [carried up] to the crown [energy center by] the [Shekinah], the Divine Influence (grace), [where he received] the same mind (glory) and reputation (honor) as God, [that death has no power over him, so now] he can swallow up (taste) death for the whole (every man) [Adam]
Heb 2:9 - ATB
But we see that Jesus [of Nazareth], an insignificant person who was [spiritually dead and] suffering the hardship of [being separated from] God [because] his spiritual status was lower than the angels, was [carried up] to the crown [energy center by the Shekinah], the Divine Influence, [where he received] the mind of God, and the same reputation [as God, that death has no power over him; so now, Christ Jesus, humanity’s new soul that is like Jesus’ soul], is consuming [the soul of the first Adam, whose sin in the previous age, causes] everyone [in this age] to die (ATB)
He was nothing. That is why God chose him. He was everyman. Can you imagine the church receiving this message? The church that idolizes and has made a god out of this man. He is a God, in his ascended state, He is a god, not the God. But Jesus of Nazareth was not a god. You know, people today, they pray sometimes to Jesus of Nazareth. They do not understand, there is no more Jesus of Nazareth. He is gone.
When the anointing hit me, I just cried like a baby. It was so powerful, and what came out of it was I received an assignment to send the answer to the rabbi’s question. I will write him a letter. It is really hard to get his attention. It is one of the fallouts of doing what we do. Having a lot of people to minister to and being overwhelmed all the time. I never forget a question I cannot answer, and this is the answer. God picked Jesus because He is nothing, He was nothing. Insignificant. He had no credentials whatsoever which would have qualified him for such an honor. God raised him from the dead and he wants to raise us from the dead too. There is a process and there is no getting around the process. If you do not like it, if you think that it is wrong, if you think that it is not fair, then you are going to lose. You will not enter in. God set the process, and that is the way it is. The process requires you overcoming your pride.
We must be dead. There is another scripture that says we die once, and then the judgment.
2 Cor 5:14
14 For the love of Christ constraineth us because we thus judge that if one died for all, then all were dead. KJV
I do not mean attack the church, I am feel sorry for them, at their ignorance. I know there were some ministers that have taught this, but the average pastor in the church says that first you die and then the judgment. No, we were already dead. The second death is when we die in this world. We died to immortality and fell down into mortality, and now there is a second death coming. The individual souls will die to this existence and cease to exist forever more. That is called the second death, which we read about in the book of Revelation.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. KJV
The devil and the false prophet will all experience the second death. This is the First Adam, but we do not have to experience the second death. It is possible to not experience the second death. There are certain criteria that we have to reach and I do not know that anyone has attained to it, other than Jesus. I believe the Lord is getting ready to make it possible for his people to start having this experience of escaping the second death. It is called the second exodus.
If you believe that Jesus died for everyone it would mean that we are dead. What do you mean this body dies, and then the judgment? No, no. The spiritual death and then the judgment. Judgment is in the flesh. He that overcometh the judgment of death shall receive eternal life.
2 Cor 5:15
15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. KJV
Jesus died for you, so that you could have eternal life, it is not in your own best interest to live only for yourself. You exist as vessels for Christ Jesus in his plan to save all of mankind. Spirits all of humanity. Spirits all in body. And then you die for all that they which live should not… If you have Christ in you, you are alive.
If you have Christ in you, you are alive, that is the blood on your door post.
7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. KJV
And you die for all that they which live… If you have Christ, you are alive. Should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for you. Him which died and rose again in you. The day that he rose in you was the third day of creation for you. You now have seen inside of you. You should not henceforth live unto yourselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again in you. He has to rise again in you. If you do not experience the resurrection, then what good does the resurrection do for you? For everyone that does not experience His resurrection within them, for all intense and purposes, He is not resurrected. If you do not have a personal experience of His resurrection, what good does his resurrection do you? He has to be resurrected in you.
2 Cor 5: 16
16 Wherefore, henceforth know we no man after the flesh, yea though we have known Christ after the flesh, that we have known Jesus the Christ after the flesh, yet now, henceforth we know him no more. KJV
He is not in the flesh anymore.
2 Cor 5:17
17 Therefore, any man be in Christ he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. KJV
The whole issue which Paul has with the Corinthians is that they either could not, or would not acknowledge his authority over them. They either could not, or would not learn about Christ, as opposed to the Holy Spirit. They would not give up the Holy Spirit. The whole two books to the Corinthians is Paul dealing with the abstinence and the rebellion of the Corinthians who are standing on the law and the Holy Spirit, and will not move on into Christ. They will not even acknowledge His existence. They struggled with Paul continuously, and that is what he is telling them here in 2 Corinthians. The whole two chapters to the Corinthians, he is dealing with this issue. They simply will not go on in Christ. They will not give up their authority. Will not yield their authority in the Holy Spirit to Christ. He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves. He is saying, “Look, you have the Holy Spirit, but with the Holy Spirit you are still living unto yourselves. You want to minister. You want to lay hands on people and them get healed. It is all about you.” Within the Pentecostal church, it is all about Pentecostal people experiencing the gifts and having a wonderful time. Which is fine for a season, and then you have to move on. The Holy Ghost people do not want to move on. That he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again in them. You have to live for the Christ within yourself. You are responsible for the fetal Christ within you, and if you do things or live a lifestyle that causes him to die, you are a Christ killer.
Wherefore henceforth know no man after the flesh. You cannot know anybody after the flesh. You have to determine whether or not Christ is in them. Once you determine that Christ is in them, you have to listen to what they have to say as if it is coming from Christ. Try the spirit on that. Henceforth you do not know anybody by the gifts of the spirit anymore. Christ is wisdom, you know people by the degree of wisdom that emanates from them.
The gifts of the spirit are wonderful in their place, but the gifts of the spirit does not testify to the spiritual quality of a man. The people who have the gifts of the spirit, it builds up their ego and some are not willing to let go of it. They are not willing to let go of their self-esteem which arises out of having the gifts of the spirit. There is no enduring life in the Holy Spirit. Enduring life is only in Christ, and therefore Christ has authority. Wisdom has authority over the gifts of the spirit. Wisdom is higher in supernatural science. Wisdom, it comes from a higher spiritual place than supernatural science, even raising the dead.
Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, we have known Christ after the flesh. We knew him as Jesus. Yet now, henceforth Jesus is gone. We do not know him anymore. He is saying it was easy to recognize Christ when he was in the flesh of Jesus, because Jesus was perfect. He was doing miracles and signs and wonders. It was easy to recognize Christ. He is gone, and now you need to be able to recognize Christ in a man who is not doing outstanding things. You need to recognize Him in people that are not raising the dead, that are not healing the sick, but are speaking wisdom and the truth of God, which is hard to do. Do not stumble at that outer man. That is what Paul is saying. We saw Christ in the flesh. He came and he did miracles to make it easy for us, and now he is gone. He taught us. He did not just do miracles and healing. He taught us, now you need to recognize him in a different body.
In the movie The Matrix, the oracle dies, and she is reincarnated in a completely different body? She was a white woman, they presented her in a kitchen and then she dies. The next time they find her, she is not in that kitchen, she is in a different location. It was a living room, but she was saying the same words, she was smoking the same cigarettes, and she was baking cookies. She was offering them cookies. She was the same person in a completely different garment. She went from being a white woman to being a black woman. It is just different wallpaper. That is exactly what is happening to the spiritual man that was inside of Jesus. That made Jesus the Son of God.
We are a clay vessel. If Christ is inside of us, if the Son of God is inside of us, it makes us the Son of God because we are his skin. Jesus of Nazareth, the clay vessel himself was not the Son of God. The Son of God was inside of him, and Jesus was his skin. Therefore Jesus was the Son of God. Jesus is glorified, and he is the Son of God. Jesus was not Messiah in the days of his flesh. Messiah was inside of him. The spiritual man that made him Messiah was inside of him. He was a fallen man, he overcame his fallen nature. He was an insignificant man.
What does that mean, insignificant? There was nothing about him that would make him stand out from other human beings. Isaiah says about him? That there is nothing about him that would make men desire him. There is nothing about him that would make anyone look twice at him. He was insignificant. Undesirable, he was not desired of men.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. KJV
Christ inside of Jesus made him the Son of God. Paul is saying the flesh of Jesus of Nazareth is gone. I have given you this testimony a couple of times. The doctor on “Star Trek” falls in love with an alien, who looks human, that is on the Enterprise, he falls ill. It turns out that his race recognizes are a symbiotic race. They recognize that there is a being inside of them, and the two races co-exist. In this episode, the primary creature was the one that you could not see, which was inside of this man that the female doctor was in love with. She was falling in love with this man who was an alien, and he fell ill. The real person was the invisible being inside of him, and the human-like shell was disposable. He told her he needs an operation, and he will be fine and they could go on with their relationship. His planet, his people are sending a replacement for him. When he comes out of the operation, and comes to see the female doctor, he is inside of a female body. It was a man that she was falling in love with, and his true reality was the serpent inside. It was the outer shell that collapsed, and his people sent a replacement garment, or replacement shell. The replacement was female, so the female doctor was challenged whether or not she wanted to go on with the love relationship. In those days, lesbianism was not acceptable. Today would have been a different story. The female doctor had to reject her. She could not go on with the relationship even though he was the same. The woman said to her that I am the same person. The man that was now a woman said, “I am the same person. I am the same person. Why do you not still love me?” The doctor said, “I cannot do that.”
The spiritual man who was inside of Jesus, it is the same spiritual man who is inside of you and is inside of me. In different stages of growth. It is the same spiritual man who was inside of Paul. Paul is saying to these confused Corinthians, “Why are you striving with me? I want to teach you to experience what I am experiencing. Why will you not let go of this idolatry for the Holy Spirit?” This is the whole subject of the two books to the Corinthians. They would not go on from the self-esteem they had attained through acquiring the Holy Spirit.
Paul is telling them he knew Christ after the flesh. What is Christ? It means the anointed one. The anointed one of God. The holy one of God, visited you in a human garment, and you recognized him. The garment is gone, and he has taken on a new garment, and it is me. He has taken on a garment of a man that was killing Jews. Killing the Israelites. It is me. Why will you not submit to me? Paul said I do not come doing miracles and raising the dead. I come with the wisdom of God. I come with the power to raise Christ from the dead in you. This is way more important than raising the dead, or growing out arms, or healing the sight of the blind. I come with the words of wisdom, with the message that will raise Christ in you, whereby you might attain immortality. You do not want what I have. You do not want my wisdom. You just want the signs and the miracles. Just like the Jews. You Jews, you are always looking for a sign or a miracle.
You knew Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. Therefore, if any man be in Christ, if any man of Christ is in you, you are now a new creature. He is not saying if the Holy Spirit is in you it is a good thing, but you are not a new creature. Christ has to be in you for you to be a new creature, and you have to start living out of his mind if you want to be a new person. If you want to reinvent yourself, you want to forget your past and the evil deeds of your past, start living out of Christ. He is your new self.
All things are passed away as long as you do not live out of the old. Do not do the evil deeds of the first man and the old things are passed away. Behold, everything has become new to you because you have a new life which is now in Christ. All things are of God who has reconciled this to himself by Jesus Christ the Mediator and is given to us the ministry of reconciliation. Paul is saying, we the apostles are now doing what Jesus did, will you not please submit to our authority. Listen, you will not submit to the authority of the apostle, there is no way they can help you. To wit, then God has given us the ministry of reconciliation. To wit, meaning that God was in Christ. God was inside of Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus of Nazareth was not God, but God was inside of him, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them. And hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. God does not want to talk about your sins anymore from the point of destroying you. He wants to talk about your sins from the point of bringing you to repentance so he can heal you. There are Christians who take this scripture, and they will not talk about their sins.
2 Cor 5:18-19
18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. KJV
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ… We pray you in the place of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is not here anymore. Christ is in us. We are the new oracle. We are the new garment. We are the new shell. We are the new body for the same Christ that was in the man Jesus. We pray you in Christ stead, be reconciled to God. How are we going to be reconciled to God? You have to submit to the apostle. The Holy Spirit will not do it.
2 Cor 5:20-21
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. KJV
I watched a video where there were three or four rabbis interviewed. There was a conversation going on back and forth between the interviewer and the rabbi. The rabbi said, “Well, no, you need a teacher. You cannot have this canvas. You need a teacher.” The Jews know you need a teacher. The Hindus know you need a teacher. The Buddhists know you need a teacher. The Christians do not understand that you need a teacher. Somehow, by the grace of God, hopefully very soon, the Lord is going to enlighten the Israel of God. If the Lord does not enlighten the Israel of God they will never survive.
I have to believe there is going to be an outpouring of the spirit of God that will deliver God’s people from the blindness that is on them. Otherwise not very many are going to survive, because you cannot get this without a teacher. Why can you not get it without a teacher? It is not that you are not smart enough to understand it by yourself. It does not work like that. When you get it from a teacher, you get the seed of the teacher. If you get the books, or you get the documents and you read it yourself, what you get is an intellectual knowledge of this message, but you do not receive the seed of life. Why? Because God is not raining out the seeds upon everybody like He did with the Holy Spirit. You have to get it from a teacher who can give you his seed. It is like telling a young child, here are all the books, and this is what you need to know about growing up. As you well know, children receive from their parents by osmosis. By being around their parents, recognizing what they do, watching them interact with other people makes them what they are when they become an adult. You cannot get it from the books alone. You need to have a relationship with the person who is actually experienced these things.
Paul is writing out of his experience, and the translators do not have a clue what he is talking about. When Christ is in you, and you have that experience, then you can see it in the scripture. It becomes much more than an intellectual experience. Studying the Word of God is literally building a new man in you with new experiences, and new ideas, and new understandings. You cannot do it without a teacher. You need the human influence. You need the testimonies. You need the personal experience. Every spiritual discipline out there knows it except the church, which is so filled with pride that they are literally committing suicide.
The reason that the Jews rejected Jesus was that they were expecting this great military leader, but it was more than that. They were expecting Messiah to be a great man. That is why they thought the rabbi who had millions of people following him, they thought he was Messiah. They were expecting him to be a great man. Jesus was a great man because of the spiritual man that was inside of him, but the outer garment, which was Jesus of Nazareth was nobody that anybody would be seeking out.
The same principle as the Syrian commander Naaman who wanted to be healed of leprosy. He came to Israel looking for the miracle worker, and he went to the king. He went to the king in the opulent palace. He never went to Elijah, who was in this humble, little condominium. This humble, little house that nobody would have ever known who he was. He was insignificant.
2 Kings 5:6-9
6 And he brought the letter to the king of Israel, saying, Now when this letter is come unto thee, behold, I have therewith sent Naaman my servant to thee, that thou mayest recover him of his leprosy.
7 And it came to pass, when the king of Israel had read the letter, that he rent his clothes, and said, Am I God, to kill and to make alive, that this man doth send unto me to recover a man of his leprosy? wherefore consider, I pray you, and see how he seeketh a quarrel against me.
8 And it was so, when Elisha the man of God had heard that the king of Israel had rent his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, Wherefore hast thou rent thy clothes? let him come now to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel.
9 So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of the house of Elisha. KJV
To this world, Jesus was insignificant. That is what Jesus meant when he said, I am not of this world. All of my palace is from another world, from the man inside of me. He was saying if this being inside of me does not deliver me from your crucifixion, then I will be crucified. You do not understand. It is not me, the clay man.
23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. KJV
