THE VIRGIN BIRTH - Part 7
The Following Message Has Been Transcribed By
The LEM Transcribing & Editing Team
Praise the Lord everybody, this is part 7 of our message called THE VIRGIN BIRTH, and we will be doing an alternate translation or an exhortation on the final alternate translation of Luke 1:26-39, followed by Matthew 1:18-25. I will read the whole thing and I will go back and start with verse 26.
LUKE 1:26-39 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of the heathen circular world named Nazareth to an unmarried woman and to Joseph who was of the house of David, and the virgins name was Mary. And Gabriel said to Mary, You are endowed with the good mental faculty of spiritual women, wherefore the Lord shall enter into the midst of you, and you shall experiencethe calm happiness promised in the Scripture. Now Cain within Mary was alarmed because she had received a word from above, but Abel, Christ within Mary was wondering what such a greeting might mean. Christ, the angel within Mary said to her, Do not be afraid Mary, the divine influence that comes from God has been found in you. Now look, and I will show what will soon come to pass. Your womb shall conceive and a son shall be produced from the seed that Joseph will plant within you, and the name that you shall call Him by is Jesus. And He shall be called the son of the Supreme God, and He shall be great, and the Lord God shall give Him the throne of David His father. And He shall rule over the house of Jacob in the age to come and his kingdom shall never end. Then Mary said to Christ, the angel within herself, How can this happen to me since I do not have an intimate relationship with a man? And Christ, the angel within Mary said to her, The Spirit of the Holy One has visited you from above, and the supernatural power of the Supreme God has enveloped you, and the result of these events is that the Holy One shall come into existence and He shall be called the son of God. And look, your cousin Elizabeth, who everyone thought was barren has also conceived a son in her old age, and is in her sixth month of pregnancy, because nothing is impossible for God. And Mary said to Christ, the angel within herself, Look at me, I am a voluntary slave of the Lord, so I will do whatever you say. Now Christ stood up within Mary in those days, so she was eager to die to Leviathan, the mountain of pride in the midst of the spiritual cities brought into existence by the patri of Juda, the son of Jacob. So this is why the Spirit of the Holy One impregnated Mary the mother of Jesus with the nature of the Father, as an engagement present before she cohabited with Joseph. Now Joseph was a justified spiritual male and therefore was disposed to dismiss Mary’s account of her experience with Gabriel rather than expose her to public ridicule or flattery. Nevertheless, Joseph was encouraged by these things, and behold an angel of the Lord shined into Joseph’s dream state, or into the trance that he entered into when he meditated, saying,Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to learn from or to believe Mary your wife, because the Spirit of the Holy One is regenerated within her. And she shall produce a son from your physical seed, and you shall call Him by the name of Jesus, because He shall deliver His people from their sins. Now all of this happened to bring to pass what the Lord spoke by the prophet Isaiah saying, Behold the womb of an unmarried woman shall produce a son from the seed of David, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which is the translation of God in the midst of us. Now Joseph being fully awakened from the powerlessness of spiritual death, did what the angel of the Lord told him to do, and learned from or believed his wife, but Joseph himself did not have the same experience that Mary had until after Mary gave birth to their son, and they called Him by the name of Jesus. AT
Verse 26 starting with Luke 1:
LUKE 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of the heathen circular world named Nazareth. AT
I think that I mentioned on a previous exhortation that I believe the angel Gabriel is the glorified Elijah. That is my, and the reason that I say that, is because Jesus cried to Elijah when He was on the cross and I believed that the Holy One that incarnated in the man Jesus, on the baby Jesus that was born, spiritually born as the son of God, was Elijah, and that was Jesus’ new man, the man that the personality of Jesus of Nazareth so completely integrated with, that when Elijah departed from the physical body which was the physical body of Jesus of Nazareth, the personality of Jesus of Nazareth went with Him, and that is the experience that we are all hoping for, that Christ in us will so completely integrate with our personality, that we will be able to continue on to exist in God with God, without the assistance of this body which is just a suit that we wear, so that we can exist in this material plane. If this body dies, and the Christ in us, if this body dies before the Christ in us come to full maturity, that Christ will die, if He is not fully born in us to the point that He can sustain our life, He will die with us and just some residue of Him will remain attached to the part of us that goes on towards reincarnation.
In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent by God, Elijah in his glorified state was sent by God to a city of the heathen circular world. I want to suggest to you that, that, although it says the name of the city was Nazareth, remember one of the final verses here is that, Christ stood up within Mary in those days, so she was eager to die to Leviathan, the mountain of pride, in the midst of the spiritual cities, brought into existence by the patri of Juda, the son of Jacob.
I could not find any meaning of the word Nazareth that would support me translating that verse this way, but I would like to translate it, And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to Mary, a city of the heathen circular world, that was named Nazareth.
I could not find any meaning of the word Nazareth that would support that, although I feel in my spirit that, that is what the translation should be, but of course both could be true, Mary was a city of the circular world because this body is a part of the circular world, and also it is true that she was existing in Nazareth at the time, to an unmarried woman, and to Joseph who was of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary.
Of course very importantly and the main thrust of this whole study is to indicate that Mary did conceive a human baby by the seed of the physical man Joseph who was the descendant of David, we have no reason to believe that Mary was a physical descendant of David, on the other hand, Joseph we are told in more than one place was a physical descendant of David. What we are preaching here is that Joseph provided the seed, the physical seed from the physical house of David to produce the body of Messiah, but the spiritual man who, the true Messiah, but the son of God that was born in that physical baby that was produced or literally manufactured from the seed of Joseph and the blood and the flesh of Mary, the womb in which He gestated or the woman that possessed the womb in which He gestated, came from David.
We see that there was a double birth here, there was a birth in the physical baby that came from the physical seed of the line of David through Joseph, and there was a birth or a coming into existence of a spiritual entity, in the midst of this baby Jesus. Mary was endowed or imbued with the life of Elijah who got inside of her after he made an announcement that she would bring forth this child, he then got inside of her, because he was the one that would be born as the son of God.
Once again, I told you in previous messages, the magi who came to worship, they were spiritual men, they did not come to worship a little baby, they knew that, that baby was the incarnation of a great spiritual being. Whether or not that actually bowed down, I do not know, but even if they did bow down, they did not think that, that little baby was God, they knew He was an incarnation of a great spiritual being. The churches belief that, that little baby was God, is nothing less than idolatry. Again a little baby that urinated in diapers and needed to be cleaned by His mother, urinated, defecated, messed up, that needed to be breast fed. There is no way that, that little baby was God, but the son of God was incarnated in the midst of Him. And Gabriel said to Mary, you are endowed with the good mental faculty of spiritual women. In other words, you are endowed, Abel with you because of your relationship with Jehovah that He made with Israel, Abel within you was activated, you are not a manifestation alone with Cain like the rest of the world, but the good faculty of spiritual women, Abel in you is stirred up and activated, and that who I am speaking to, I am speaking to Abel in you, I am not coming to Cain in you.
Because the good mental faculty of spiritual women is stirred up in you, It makes you a candidate for the Lord to deal with you and use you as a part of His plan.Wherefore the Lord shall enter into the midst of you, and you shall experience the calm happiness promised in the Scripture. We do not know exactly when that happened. The Lord shall enter into the midst of you and you shall experience the calm happiness promised in the Scripture.
That could be talking about her, you know the spiritual pregnancy, but I do not really think so, I think that this happened after Jesus of Nazareth came into His ministry. The Lord shall enter into the midst of you and you shall experience the calm happiness promised in the Scripture. If that promise, well it may have been fulfilled in her pregnancy, but the promise to us is that the Lord shall be in the midst of us, Christ in you the hope of glory, not just for nine months, the promise of calm happiness, which is the opposite of agitation that we experience by living in this world, is the promise that we are supposed to have when Christ comes to dwell in us.
It is possible that Mary was happy for the nine months that she was pregnant, but I think that this promise goes way beyond the calm happiness of nine months of pregnancy, I think that she was promised that experience that the disciples, or that was available to the disciples after the resurrection of Jesus.
We do not hear anything about Mary after His resurrection, the last we hear about her, is that she is witnessing His crucifixion. We have some information of what happened to Peter after the resurrection, and we know what happened to Paul after the resurrection that Jesus literally possessed him, but we do not hear anything about what happened to Mary, and we do not hear anything about what happened to Joseph, another verse in this account that we are dealing with, tell us that Joseph did share the same experience that Mary did, that means he had a spiritual experience with the resurrected Christ, but we do not know what end, because we do not hear anything these two people afterwards. I have that before the Lord, we will see what He has to say to me about that.
I would really like to know what happened to them, and I know that on other messages, I preach that I did not know if Joseph ever came into the spiritual experience that was the fruit of this interaction between Joseph and Mary. This is the first witness that I have seen that Joseph did have some spiritual experience after Jesus was born and after His ministry, and after His resurrection, that Joseph was not just the physical male that provided the seed, that he did have some spiritual experience with Christ as a result of this, but we have no idea, I cannot even tell from this, what it was, but Joseph did not have the same experience. This is just amazing, when I am preaching this message, my fingers are cramping, this is not the first time this has happened, I rebuke this retaliation in Jesus name.
Our text says that Joseph did not have the same experience that Mary had until after the birth of their son. What does that mean? Did he have the experience of becoming impregnated with the son of God, well he may have. He did not have the experience of giving birth to a physical baby, but he may very well have had the experience of being impregnated with the seed of the glorified Jesus Christ after His resurrection. We do not know.
You see, the Jews, they have all kinds of Hebrew books with all kinds of information beyond what we have, we have the Bible, which is very valuable, but it is very abbreviated, there is a lot of information missing from the Bible, some of it I get when I study in the alternate translation, I get some information by the spirit of revelation, but the Jewish people, they have all kinds of history books and records and teachings that is way beyond what we have. If we read it in the book of Daniel, we read that when Daniel was by the river Chebar, the place where he had his experience with God, the angel, Daniel was praying, Lord, how long will my people be in this kind of bondage, when will we be delivered from slavery in Babylon? And an angel was dispatched to him.
At that time we are told in the Bible, in the Scripture, that Daniel was studying other books, books beyond the Bible. We are very much at a handicap compared to the Jewish people that have all of these books and records and historical accounts. Remember now, Judea was a civil state, they had a government, they were a vassal state of Rome, but they were a government, the government was called the Sanhedrin. They had all kinds of official records about what happened, who people were, births, deaths, they had all kinds of legal documents that are in Hebrew, that we have no access to at all. We are limited, it is amazing that even in this ministry that we are getting information that we are getting based on what we have to work with, that in itself is a miracle, but the Lord is getting His word out. I am in verse 28, And Gabriel said to Mary, You are endowed with the good mental faculty of spiritual women, which of course indicates that she was a spiritual woman, that she was not a spiritual male, because to be a spiritual male, you have to have Christ Jesus living His life through you, that is what makes you a spiritual male, it is not enough that He is inside of you, He has to be thinking through you, making decisions through you and motivating you to be a spiritual male, and of course to a Jew, the name Christ Jesus is alien.
Christ Jesus is the resurrected Adam, Christ Jesus is the resurrected Adam, Adam who is born again in an individual. The individual is not being born again. When Jesus said, You must be born again, that is the way the King James translators couched the term, but the one that is being born again, is that Adam is being born again in us, Adam who died, is now in the process of dying to the death that he died to.
We read in the book of Revelation, that those whose names are written in the book of life will not be hurt by the second death. What does that mean? We talked about this in the earlier message this morning, when it comes time for this physical body to die, this physical body is death, it is already dead, in Adam all died, these bodies are the manifestation of the creation in the mode of death. The second death, the first death was spiritual death, the second death comes when the physical body dies. To not be hurt by the second death, means, that when it comes time for the physical body to die, Christ Jesus will sustain our life and that is what happened to Jesus. He said death held no sway over Him. Death could not keep Him in the grave.
The death of death is the death of this condition of death, which another way to say it is the resurrection unto life. If you are not hurt by the second death, it means you are going to live even though death tries to take you, death will not be able to hold you in the grave. That is what the death of death is. If you die a second time, then you pass out of this world, and you have been hurt by the second death. This is verse 29, Now Cain within Mary was alarmed because she had received a word from above, but Abel, Christ within Mary was wondering what such a greeting might mean.
We see that Cain is always frightened when it comes to any manifestation of the Lord at all. Why is Cain frightened? Because Cain knows that she is guilty, Cain knows that she is the anti-Christ, that she has murdered Abel, and that she, her role in the Serpent’s household is to stand between Christ Jesus and Christ in the individual, she interferes with any attempt by the Lord to raise Abel from the dead in any individual, and to, and of course Abel is the root system of Adam. Once Abel is awakened, then we have a potential for Adam to be raised from the dead, and the male Adam to appear, and the male Adam to be born in the individual.
Cain is always frightened when confronted with the Lord, she is afraid of losing her position, she is afraid of being put down under the authority of the household of God, Cain is very alarmed and frightened at the very thought or appearance of any manifestation of the household of God, because it means the end of her power, he control, and this whole, ultimately this whole world, which is a manifestation of the mind of the Serpent, Cain being the lowest one on the totem pole of the Serpent’s household, this whole world is coming to an end. The Scripture clearly says it is going to roll up like a scroll, and disappear. It is going to roll up like a scroll, and become a point and disappear.
The Scripture says, the devils, they know, the know about God, they tremble, so Cain and every manifestation of Cain, the carnal mind, they know the prophecies more than we do. That this world is prophesied to come to an end, that it is prophesied that the Holy One of Israel will appear in the flesh of a man, and put down all power and principality.
They know the Scripture, they just do not believe it, they think that they can fight it off and stop it from happening, who are they? Satan, Leviathan, the Serpent, the whole household, the whole Serpent’s household, they believe that they will be able to stop it, but they heard the word, they know what it says, and they are frightened every time they come into contact with anyone that has anything to do with the Spirit of God.
But Mary, Christ in Mary, she was wondering what such a greeting might mean. Today we see all kinds of events happening in our world, we see earthquakes and we see floods, and some Christians are very afraid, but some Christians are praying and saying, Lord, What does this mean?
Fear gets you no where, fear is completely counterproductive because fear comes out of Cain, and then Cain buries Christ under you and that cuts you off from the living God, no matter what your problem is. If you are afraid a flood is coming, if you have a problem with your body, if you are sick, if you have financial problems, whatever, fear is counterproductive, it cuts off the communication from God, whatever the Lord is telling you is blocked by your fear. It is totally nonproductive and destructive and is something that comes out of our fallen animal nature, it is not of God at all, there is no fear in Christ. Verse 30, So Christ, the angel within Mary said to her, Do not be afraid... Now remember as I preach this that Gabriel appeared outside of Mary, communicated with her and then got inside of her, and I told you that, that was my experience.
An angel did not appear to me, but I heard a loud boom voice saying to me, I am the Lord your God who has brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, and you shall serve me, scared me half to death. After that, I started reading the Bible and seeking the Lord, and one day I said to Him, Lord, how come I do not hear that loud booming voice anymore? And He said to me, Because I got inside of you, I am now speaking to you from the inside. This is what happened to Mary, so now the angel is talking to her.
So Christ the angel within Mary said to her, Do not be afraid Mary, the divine influence that comes from God has been found in you. We see that Mary has the good mental faculty of spiritual women, and I guess I am not sure how I am going to translate that, I will have to pray about this because it is time to put it in the alternate translation. Originally I said here, Mary, the divine influence that comes from God has found you, and then I thought it should be, has been found in you, the divine that comes from God has found you, I am not sure which it should be, but I will have to decide by today when I put this in the alternate translation, so I pray for the truth Lord as to what you would have me say here.
Verse 31. Now look, and I will show you what will soon come to pass, your womb shall conceive... Now you see, not your mind, but your womb, this means a physical conception, your womb shall conceive and a son shall be produced from the seed, and I have amplified here that Joseph will plant in you. This is a physical seed, it is a physical birth, it is not a spiritual seed fertilizing a human seed, which I believed myself for years, it is not, there will be a physical seed that will cause Mary’s womb conceive and the son of God, the angel that got inside of Mary will come into existence, will incarnate in the person of this baby, who will be conceived from the physical, two physical seeds, a male seed, and a female seed, and you shall call Him by His name, Jesus. And He shall be called the son of the Supreme God.
There is not one Scripture that says that Jesus was God in the days of His flesh. It is just amazing how all of us do not think, we just believe what we are taught, even though the Scripture says the exact opposite. He shall be called the son of the Supreme God.
I remember the day my daughter challenged me one day and said, He is not God, Jesus is not God, He is the son of God. I was horrified. She had been married to a Jehovah’s witness, so I said, are you turning into a Jehovah’s witness? Of course she said No, right now she does not believe in anybody or anything, that was a few years ago, but I was horrified when she challenged me with that, and she was right. I do not care whether she got it from her Jehovah witness mother-in-law or not, there is not one Scripture that says Jesus was God in the days of His flesh. He was the son of the Supreme God. He shall be great, and the Lord God shall give Him the throne of David His father. Lord God, in the Old Testament anyway, because the Old Testament is our control, because the New Testament is not nearly as clear as the Old Testament, so we always look to the Old Testament, Lord God means Jehovah and Elohim operating together. Lord is a translation of Jehovah, and God is a translation of Elohim. The Lord God shall give Him the throne of David His father.
A lot of people assume that this is talking about the throne, the physical throne of a natural Israel, kingship over a natural nation, I do not really see that happening at this point, and this is how I see this verse. The Lord God Jehovah, Elohim shall give him the throne of David His father. Did you know that David has a spiritual throne, or not that, I am sorry David was a spiritual throne, king David was a spiritual throne, that the anointing rested on. King David, he was a throne, and an imputed Christ Jesus dwelt in him.
It is significant that the Scripture says Lord God. The way I teach it as a part of the doctrine of Christ is that Christ in us is destined, first Christ has to be conceived in us and mature in us, then He is destined to marry the glorified Jesus Christ, and when Christ in us marries the glorified Jesus Christ, there is an offspring of that union, and the name of that offspring, does anyone know the name of that offspring? Christ Jesus, yes, that is who Christ Jesus is, He is the offspring of Christ in the individual and the glorified Jesus Christ, Christ Jesus the only mediator between God and man, and He sits on the throne of our heart.
The significance of this is, that person who has this experience now has available to him, has operating through him the spiritual circulation of Christ Jesus, we are continuously fed from the glory of God from the ascended Jesus Christ, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Christ in the us becomes the recipient of the spiritual blood circulatory system, and is continuously fed by the energy and the life of the glorified Jesus Christ that flows into our person through Christ in us, and then back up to the Lord Jesus Christ, the continuous cycle of renewal, and therefore Christ Jesus is called the only mediator between God and man.
He sits on the throne of our heart and through Him continual uninterrupted communication exists between the glorified Jesus Christ and Christ in the individual. That is why once you come into this place in Christ Jesus, you do not have to spend hours on your knees praying. The whole purpose of prayer is to communicate with God. Once the throne is established in your heart, once your heart is established as a throne, and Christ Jesus is sitting on it, so it is Christ in you who is the throne, the glorified Jesus impregnates Him and Christ in you gives birth to the offspring of the Father, Christ Jesus, and Christ Jesus sits on Christ who is the throne within you, and we have continual communication with the glorified Jesus.
We do not have to fast, see, John’s disciples said to Jesus, How come your disciples do not fast? John’s disciples fasted, Jesus’ disciples did not fast. I am not telling you what to do, I am just telling you about my experience, I do not pray on my knees, I do not have a prayer time set aside for specific prayers, I talk to the Lord all of the time, all of the time, He talks to me, I talk to Him, I study, He talks to me, I work He talks to me, I might have something on my heart, I could stop in the midst of anything, in the midst of the secular part of the work of this ministry, I could in the shower, He talks to me all of the time in the shower, there is a continuous flow of communication, there is no need to fast, and there is no need to pray on my knees, unless for some, every once in a while I feel the need to do it in an intense trial that I am going through. The people who pray on their knees and fast, they are doing that hopefully because they hope it will result in a communication from God.
The Jews and the Kabbalists, they meditate because they hope to have a communication from the Holy Spirit, which is a different Holy Spirit that is in the church, more like the Spirit of Christ. Communication with God is the name of the game, well the Lord communicates with me continuously, and I have access to Him continuously. I do not have to be on my knees, I do not have to have an empty belly, He is there, why? Because Christ in me has given birth to Christ Jesus, and both Christ and Christ Jesus are within me, and we have permanent continuous access to the Lord Jesus Christ. We are told in the New Testament that we have an angel whose face is continuously turned towards God, I believe it was Jesus who said that, that is Christ Jesus, His face is continuously turned towards God, He is our advocate.
The glorified Jesus Christ is not our advocate. The Scripture says we have an advocate in heaven, the glorified Jesus Christ is not our advocate, Christ Jesus the son of the Supreme God who sits on the throne, that Christ in us is, is our advocate. Brethren, the work that Jesus did, the resurrection has to be applied to your own life. This is the blood that is applied to the doorposts that we read about as the Hebrew children fled Egypt. The Holy Spirit is not the blood, Christ is the blood. He has to be applied to the doorposts of this house that He lives in, and then the angel of death passes over you. What does it mean passes over you, passes over the Cain side of you, and when death comes is not going to be killed, that part of us that is vulnerable to death will be hidden underneath Christ Jesus in us.
When verse 32 says, And the Lord God shall give Him the throne of David His father, everybody hearing me now, you have two choices, you can believe that Messiah is going to manifest as a single man who will take up a kingship likened unto the royal family of England, that He is going to be a king with a crown and sit on the throne and rule over a natural people who will become a physical nation, or you can believe that Jesus, Jesus meaning Christ as He is reincarnating in all of us, because Jesus is glorified now, so this promise is to the reincarnation of Jesus, He is reincarnating in many people at one time, that the throne that He is going to receive, or the throne that we are going to receive as Christ appears in us is not a physical throne, if there is not going to be one man on one throne, over a nation of subjects, physical material subjects who pay taxes to Him, and I just used taxes as an example of the authority of a natural government, this is really funny, my fingers are all, this has happened like three other times when I was preaching a powerful message, (chuckle).
You can believe that if you want to, or you can believe that the glorified Jesus Christ will remain in heaven, and that He sent His seed, His son which is impregnating many spiritual women, and that this seed of Christ that is raising Abel in the individual, will experience the same throne that king David did. They will experience Christ in them being a throne for Christ Jesus, and that they will experience the authority and the power that king David experienced, but it will not manifest the same way.
Brethren, do you remember my teaching on the, I am so sorry but I am being attacked, I just break these curses in Jesus name, amen. You know my teaching on the old and new covenant, there is no old and new covenant, there is just one covenant, Jehovah made a covenant with Israel. He did not make a covenant so much with the physical men of Israel, He made a covenant with the spiritual beings that were incarnated as Israel, He just re-instituted His covenant with Adam, and He re-instituted His covenant with Adam who had been broken into many pieces, and was incarnated in this world as Israel.
That same covenant, He ministered it one way to the Hebrew children in the wilderness, and He is ministering that same covenant to Christians today, and actually to Jews today to whatever degree they can hear it, it is the same covenant, nothing has changed. I will put my laws in your heart, and you shall be my people and I shall be your God, and I shall fight for you and I shall meet your every need, and your job is to obey me.
Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make them, thou shalt not bow down to them, thou shalt not worship them. Then He went on with the ten commandments, You do that, and I will be your God. Thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness, thou shalt honor thy mother and thy father and live long on the earth.
That is our part, and then He will be our God and defend us and we will be victorious in every area of our life, that is the covenant. What is different between what He said to the Hebrew children in the wilderness and He is saying to the church today, there is no difference, but we today, the church, are different people than the Hebrew children in the wilderness, and we are existing in different circumstances than the Hebrew children in the wilderness.
The outplaying of this covenant that Jehovah made with Israel, is manifesting differently in the lives of the church, than it did in the lives of the Hebrew children of the wilderness, not because God has changed, not because the covenant has changed, but because we have changed position, because we are the same people that were present in Mount Sinai when the covenant was made. We are reincarnations of the Israel in the wilderness, we are the same people brethren, it was not them and us, we are the same people, but we are in a different place now, we are in a spiritual wilderness and the savior, the plan that Jehovah made to save His people from their sins is in a different place of progression than it was at the time that the Hebrew children were at Mount Sinai.
There is a plan you see, the plan was set in place when Adam was dying, and Jehovah said to him, you are falling into the sleep of death, I will provide a help that is meet, I will provide a help that is sufficient that this will not happen to you again. At Mount Sinai in the wilderness the provision was not in place yet, the help that was meet for them, the help that would support Adam, the support that would prevent or enable Adam to overcome temptation and not sin again was not yet available, so the covenant manifested in one way in the lives the Hebrew children, God does not change, the covenant did not change, His intention did not change, His promise did not change, but the power and life and the promise of God manifested in the lives of the Hebrew children in a way that was conducive to their position of that time, and in the same manner, the covenant, the power, the love, the life, the promises of God are manifesting to the church today in a manner that is conducive to our position.
What is the difference between the two positions? The progression of what Jehovah has promised to do is in a more advanced stage today than it was in the wilderness, what is the advanced stage, what is the advanced stage? What is different today than in the wilderness? The savior has been resurrected, the savior exists in a glorified state. Actually the work is done. You hear it preached in the church that Jesus’ work was a completed work, the work on the cross completed everything, there is nothing more to be done.
There is nothing more to be done by God, so now that the provision is in place, it has to do its work in us. He has fulfilled His promise, He has provided the help that is sufficient to sustain us and help us to exist and live above sin, He kept His promise, but we do not want it. We are so merged together with the life and consciousness of the Serpent, that we do not want, or we cannot recognize the fulfillment of Jehovah’s promise to us in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is the same covenant, and there is no New Testament, I know I used these terms because these are the terms by which I communicate with the church, that is what you are used to, there is no new covenant, there is one covenant! That one covenant was ministered to God’s people in the old time before the word of creating this help that we need was completed and the same covenant was ministered to God’s people in the new time, after the help that Jehovah promised Adam was perfected, but the covenant is the same, the age has changed, and we have changed, and our position has changed, God has not changed.
We were talking about the throne of David His father, and the Lord God, and the reason the term Lord God is significant, is that in order for the throne to be formed in us, both Jehovah and Elohim have to be present in our lives. Both aspects of God, the wisdom and the righteousness of God and the power of God, are necessary, to produce a, to make us into a throne, we are the throne that the son of God sits on. I do not know about you brethren, but when I have this opportunity, if I were out there and I was hearing this message, I would much rather believe that I have an opportunity to be a part of the throne of God, and that Christ Jesus can sit on me and be the savior in the midst of me, and be the law in the midst of me. Christ Jesus is the law of God in the midst of me, He is our ability, He is the law of God that polices the evil inclination of our flesh animal nature. Christ Jesus is the internalized law of God that polices by eternal fire, the evil inclination of the negative side of us that is necessary to produce a visible creation.
I would much rather believe that I was the throne, and that I was a house that Christ Jesus lived in, and when He lives in me, He takes care of His house. I would much rather believe that than Jesus is coming back as an individual male, individual man to sit in a material palace, with a material gold crown on His head, and rule over a material nation where people are still going to have all kinds of problems.
Why would anybody want to choose the second option? Most people have not heard what I just told you, and they just believe what they are being taught. My choice is the second option. Now look and I will show you what will soon come to pass, your womb shall conceive and a son shall be produced from that seed that is coming from Joseph... I am sorry I am in the wrong verse, And He shall be called the son of the Supreme God, and He shall be great, and the Lord God, both Jehovah and Elohim shall be involved in bringing you as a throne, just like it was done for David His father. AT Everybody with me? This is an important message. And He shall rule over the house of Jacob. Now brethren, this is very touchy, I do not read where Messiah is going to rule over the whole world. I do not read where the whole world is going to be saved. My bible says, ..and He shall rule over the house of Jacob, Jacob, the natural Jacob who gave birth to the twelve tribes, Israel. And He shall rule over Israel. We are told, this is what was said to Mary. What was said to Joseph in Matthew 1:21 was, And she shall produce a son from your physical seed, and you shall call Him by the name Jesus because He shall deliver His people from their sins, His people, His people, His people, not the whole world, His people.
To Mary He said, the house of Jacob, which are the physical descendants of Jacob, which are, not just the Jewish people, that is the descendants of the twelve tribes which we do not know where they are. Some Christians believe that Europe are the descendants of the twelve tribes, but nobody really knows for sure, I do not, I have different opinions on it, but that is not this message right now. He will rule over the physical descendants of Jacob, He will rule over them but, He will deliver from their sins His people.
That means today Jesus says, Whosoever will, come unto me. His people are the ones who will confess their sins to Him, His people are the ones who are obedient to Him, and that does not mean every physical Israelite. We mentioned this in the earlier message, there is going to be a group of people who are born as natural Jews, and a group of people who are not born as natural Jews who will establish a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, a relationship based on knowledge, the spiritual equivalent of carnal knowledge, marriage, marriage, union to the point of intimacy of mind and spirit, and all of those people together are called the Israel of God, His people.
The people who will be delivered from their sins are the people who are so attached to Jesus, that being delivered from their sin nature will not destroy them, because to cut out your sin nature, if Christ Jesus is not there to take its place, will kill you. His people will be delivered from their sins, but He will rule over the house of Jacob. Brethren that tells me that there are two categories of people. This Scripture tells me that there are descendants of the natural line of Jacob, who are not necessarily His people who will be delivered from their sins.
Those people who do not have the internalized Christ Jesus, because for whatever reason, they cannot look, they cannot face their sin nature, they must be ruled over. Why must they be ruled over, because they will not live a sinless life by their own choice, we are all law breakers, everyone of us, no matter how civilized we are, and what our position in society is, in our hearts, we are all law breakers. I tell you brethren, the sins that I see manifested in my own mind, break my heart, things that I, thoughts and feelings that I would never ever choose to think or feel, but they arise in my mind, and in my emotions, and all I could do is cry out to God and ask Him to forgive me, that I am not in agreement with those thoughts, of pride, and mostly pride and envy, and I just apologize to Him that these thoughts would even appear in me, I have so much, look at what He has given me, that I could envious of anybody or anything, makes no sense at all.
This lady right over here, she told me for years, when I would reveal envy in her, she would say to me, understandably so, why would be envious of that? Why would be envious of that? The answer is that we have a sin nature. I could say the same thing today, why would I be envious of that, but envy appeared in me, I saw it! I saw it in my mind, and I saw it in emotions, I saw it!
I said, Lord, why, where, what, who, how, what a disgrace, in view of all that I have, but it is there, and it arose out of my sin nature, and that is answer for this lady, that at the time I had no answer for her. It is there, it does not mean that you want it, I am in complete disagreement but it appears in me, because there is two of me. There is Cain and there is Christ in me, and Cain is evil, Cain is envious, Cain is prideful, Cain is retaliatory. I am two people, so all that I could do, is recognize it when it rises, and renounce it. I cannot make it go away, I have to live with this knowledge, that there is a side of me, that is a very serious sinner, and the only difference between me and other people is that I know it and they do not, because we are all in this condition.
He shall rule over the house of Jacob. The natural descendants of Jacob who for whatever reason are not able or willing to deal with their sin nature as I just described, they have to ruled over because they are going to be doing sins, not necessarily murder, but they are going to be sinning with their minds and their heart.
This pride and this envy, if it is not renounced and dealt with, takes on a life of its own and goes forth as thought forms and carries out the lusts of Cain, and that envy goes and does damage to the object of the envy. You have got to hear this. These sins take on a life of their own, and go forth to carry out the will of the evil one in me, that generated the thought. If you think about it brethren, I recently described to you my understanding today of what an angel is, and that is my definition of an angel, of a good angel, that God is so great, when He wills something, a thought form appears and goes forth to carry out His will, and that is what an angel is.
God is so great and mighty that there must be trillions of angels, each of them having a job to carry out His will, in the same way that we have trillions of cells within us who are programmed to sustain the life of this body. Those are the angels of God, but Cain, we are all fallen angels, that is what we are, so the fallen angel within us has imaginations, has will and desire, called envy, pride, rejection, all of the sins known to man.
When this will and these desires and Paul calls it the motions of sin, meaning sin is a vibration, it is an energy wave, when it rises in us, if we cannot see it, or if we see it and we just ignore it, it takes on a form and goes forth to carry out the will of the author of the that sin which is Satan in you, and you are guilty. The only way to be absolved from that guilt, is by the power of grace of Christ Jesus in you to see it and renounce it, if you do not renounce it, it goes forth and does its thing, and you have given birth to an evil angel.
This world is filled with evil angels, and the get together and they collaborate, and cause all kinds of disasters in the world, a car accident is the result of the collaboration of the getting together of many evil angels who are in agreement to do damage to that person. Christ Jesus shall rule over the house of Jacob, He is going to rule over the natural man, He is going to rule over the house of Jacob, that is not every human being on the earth brethren. It is the house of Jacob. What happens to everybody else? Well everybody else has the opportunity to become one of the people of God, that means you connect to God through the vehicle of the Lord Jesus Christ by confessing your sins, but we see that the house of Jacob will be ruled over whether they confess their sins or not.
He shall rule over the house of Jacob in the age to come, and His kingdom shall never end. That is interesting, His kingdom shall never end, what does that mean for you and me, I thought I was a king and a priest, is that not what the bible says that we are kings and priests? And He is the king of kings, that means this kingdom, each of us is a kingdom, that will never end, that means immortality brethren, immortality, He shall rule over the house of Jacob, He shall deliver His people from their sins and the physical body shall never end. I do not know about the physical body, but the material body, at some point, we will be shedding these physical bodies, we will have a visible body of a residence material. It is talking about immortality, it is not talking about His kingdom up in the by and by, we are the kings, and our person is the kingdom, each one of us is a world, and He is the king of all of the kings. All, our body, our whole person, our whole physical and spiritual universe is a kingdom, so that means all of the believers in which Christ Jesus is dwelling, we are collectively the kingdom of God, and that kingdom will never come to an end.
If there are evil people in this world who are able to kill off Christians and Jews in whom Christ Jesus may be manifesting, they can wipe out every last one of us, but this kingdom will never come to an end, the Lord Jesus will merely raise it up in another group of humans. They found that out, had they only known, they would have never crucified the Lord of glory, if they had only known, they would have never crucified the Lord of glory, if they had known that His resurrection would result in the proliferation of His life, and to the many members of humanity, they would have never done it. It is impossible to wipe out this kingdom, you see.
I have been preaching over the last months that there are forces that are trying to wipe Christianity off of the face of the earth, they are trying to raise up a secular state, but the secular state that they are trying to raise up in this country is just an intermediary state, as soon as they can wipe out Christianity if they can do it, they will bring pagan, or there are already moves to bring pagan religion back, and pagan gods.
It is impossible though, His kingdom shall never end, He is glorified, Jesus is glorified, His seed is in the earth, and evil people can wipe out everyone of us and it will just pop up in another place.
Then Mary said to Christ, the angel within herself, How can this happen to me, since I do not have an intimate relationship with a man? Of course if this is preached in the church that Mary was naive, and understanding that she was now spiritually impregnated, but I do not believe that, and the angels answer to her was,The Spirit of the Holy One has visited you from above.
That means the spiritual being that is ready to be born, as this baby is already in place, and the supernatural power of the Supreme God has enveloped you, and the result of these events is that the Holy One shall come into existence. That means to be born as a man. The Holy One shall be born as a human. We are talking about incarnation. ...and He shall be called the son of God.
Of course we see in the account of Matthew how this is explained further to Joseph, but right now the last four verses in Luke, I sort of changed the subject, so we will look at those last four verses. Verse 36, And look, your cousin Elizabeth, who everyone thought was barren, has also conceived a son in her old age... That is interesting too, look at that, has also conceived a son, so it was a natural conception, brethren, the whole concept of the son of God being born, was a concept of incarnation, it was a concept of incarnation, the human baby was not born as God, the church has a lot to repent of, the church has been completely overshadowed with Cain’s doctrine. No human baby, no human man can be God, God cannot be restrained to a form. Even Solomon when He built His temple, in his prayer of dedication to Jehovah, said I know that you are too great to inhabit this great building that I built for you, what building can contain God, that is what Solomon said.
He said, My prayer Lord, is that when the people come to this building to pray, that you hear them, that you look towards this building and you understand that your people are here seeking you, that, that is all they know how to do when they are here seeking you, and that you listen and that you hear and answer their prayers, but I know that no building can contain you.
How can God be contained in one man? It is impossible, He is infinite, we are inside of Him, but He can be revealed through a man, and that is a definition of the son of God, that His life is inside of a man, and that almighty God which we are inside of, is revealing Himself through His agent in a human being, and the name of that agent is His son. Brethren, the church is very naive, this is what happens when your teachers are women and children.
And look, your cousin Elizabeth who everyone thought was barren has also conceived a son in her old age, and is in her sixth month of pregnancy, because nothing is impossible for God. And Mary said to Christ, the angel within herself, Look at me, I am a voluntary slave of the Lord, so I will do whatever you say. Now Christ stood up within Mary in those days, the Christ that she was impregnated with when He got inside of her, stood up within Mary in those days so she was eager to die to Leviathan, the mountain of pride in the midst of the spiritual cities brought into existence by the patri of Juda. Did I say the son of Jacob, yes the son of Jacob, right. That angel that got inside of her, matured in her in preparation for His incarnation through the baby that she was pregnant with, and He made her bold, and He gave her understanding, and He gave her that understanding that made her willing, and not only willing, but eager to die to her pride, because anyone in whom Christ is truly moving forward, will hate this pride, we will hate sin in us and we will be very eager to have our sins exposed and ripped out.
That is what happened to Mary, she was eager to die to Leviathan, because Christ stood up in her. Nobody that does not have Christ standing in them is going to be eager to have their sins revealed. You have to get this revelation brethren, what a blessing it is to have your sins revealed. You have to get this revelation, and you can only get it when Christ is standing in you.
Now we started with Matthew, I am going to try and finish this today. We are starting with Matthew 1, so we pick up, it really goes from Luke 1:35, with the angel saying to Mary, This is how it is going to happen to you, the Spirit of the Holy One has visited you from above, and the supernatural power of the Supreme God has enveloped you, and the result of these events is that the Holy one shall come into existence, He shall be born, He shall incarnate and He shall be called the son of God, verse 18, Matthew 1, And now this is why the Spirit of the Holy One impregnated Mary, the mother of Jesus. Why, why? This is why, that the Spirit of the Holy One shall come into existence. Verse 35 of Luke chapter 1, continues with Matthew chapter 1:18, this is the reason why you are impregnated Mary, you are impregnated with a human or this is why you were impregnated. This is why the Holy One sent Joseph to impregnate the mother of Jesus so that the Holy One had a vessel through which to incarnate in.
This is why the Spirit of the Holy One impregnated Mary, the mother of Jesus with the nature of the Father, as an engagement present because she was engaged to marry God, before she cohabited with Joseph. How could that be an engagement present from God? Mary could not marry God until the resurrected Christ came into existence. That is the promise of the full marriage. Now the Jew knows about a bonding to Jehovah, but we are hoping for the true fulfillment of marriage, as demonstrated to us by Jesus of Nazareth, He was so married to God, through God’s agent in mankind Elijah, that the personality of Jesus was able to depart from the physical body and continue to exist. Oh death, where is thy sting, oh death where is thy victory, Oh sin where is thy sting, death where is thy victory?
That is the fulfillment of the marriage, because you see, the agent of God can enter in an leave us at will, but those of us who are not completely integrated with the son of God in our being, we have nothing to say, we are born into this world, we live for a season, some of us are sicker than others, but we all die, we all die. Deliverance from death will come in a form of the maturation of Christ Jesus in us, and His full marriage, and integration to our personality, so that when He departs from us, we go with Him, and the body just drops like a sack, which is what happened to Jesus of Nazareth. The Scripture says He died, well His body died, Jesus of Nazareth died, the body died, but the real man did not die. The real man did not die, this body is not the man, this body is a horse. Verse 19, Now Joseph, now we are going to find out about Joseph, the father of the baby Jesus. You see, Mary is the mother of Jesus, Joseph is the father of Jesus the human. Now Joseph was a justified spiritual male, and therefore was disposed to dismiss Mary’s account of her experience with Gabriel, rather than expose her, I am feeling a little pressure, do you have to leave, I could finish this next week, let us just end it here and we will do Matthew, there will be a part 8 and we will do Matthew next week, because it is 2:15. Praise the Lord.
