The Time Is At Hand

Does it seem strange unto you that this great Galilean has,
in this day, rose to immortal fame in the minds of the people?
For it is thus written of Him, and the Scriptures cannot be
broken: the whole world has gone after Him. He is the stone
the builders rejected. The same has become the head of the
corner. Other foundations can no man lay. Let every man take
heed how he builds thereon.
Having built walls, you daubed it with untempered mortar,
and there is not one stone left upon another that shall not be
cast down.
God called Solomon to build His house. He said He would
set His name upon it. That house was a natural building, soon
to be torn down, but being a symbol of spiritual things to
come. Solomon portrayed a shadow of the kingdom age, when
miracles had played their part in the past in the lives of the
prophets and the warriors of old had make their conquest, all
this having been done, yet the house of God remained unbuilt.
The Red Sea had been divided by the mighty power of God.
The mount of God smote with His fiery indignation. The sun
had stopped in its orbit at the command of man. The giants
were overthrown and the Canaan land taken, yet the house of
God remained unbuilt. Then was sought the gift of wisdom,
the only gift that could build the house of God. For it is the
mind of Christ so powerfully portrayed through the human
body. It brought in the kingdom age and caused all the land to
be at rest, for the knowledge of the Lord shall fill the earth.
The Lord said in His word, if your ways please me, I will
make your enemies to be at peace with you, and Solomon's
ways pleased God. He had asked for the one gift that it takes
to please God, seeking to understand God and His ways. Every
man's ways are right in his own eyes, but are they in
agreement with the word of God? Behold, I give you power
over all the powers of the enemy, and nothing shall be any
means hurt you. To whom does He speak? To all those whose
ways please God. Solomon's enemies were at peace with him.
He had plenty of time to think right and find the wisdom of
God. I ask you this question: are you sick and oppressed? Is
your mind gloomy and overshadowed with thoughts of doubt,
fears, and worries, which things are the stronghold of Satan,
which channels he uses to malice the body. Faith comes by
hearing, and hearing by the wisdom or the word of God.
Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts
itself against the knowledge of God, bringing into every
thought to the obedience of the mind of Christ. Your enemies
will be at peace with you. The miracles have proved our God
to the world. The prophesies have foretold of His great events.
Tongues have been a sign to the unbeliever, interpretations
have expounded the secrets of the heart. Government and
helps have found their place greatly misused at times, yet all
things have done their work well. But only His appearing
radiating through the human body will destroy the knowledge
of perversion and destroy the man of perdition with the
brightness of His coming. In the natural, He shall appear and
every man shall behold His coming, but beloved, we look not
to those things that are temporal, but to those things that are
eternal. For in the physical realms in the physical sense, He
has appeared the second time without sin unto salvation to
them that look for His second appearing, as the Holy Ghost.
For the law and the prophets were until John, since that time,
the kingdom of God has been preached and men press their
way into it. Jesus said to preach the time is fulfilled, and the
kingdom of God is at hand.
Philip's message at Samaria was the kingdom of God and
the name Jesus. Proof of the fulfillment of time for the
kingdom age. God sent forth His Son in the fullness of time,
born of a woman, made under the law. He said in the fullness
of time, He would gather all things together in heaven and
earth into the body of Christ. Christ confirmed this by saying,
"All power is given unto Me in heaven and earth." The writer
said that by the one Spirit we are baptized into one body (body
of Christ).
The Bible says that the kingdom of God is within you, and
John 4:24 says that God is a Spirit. The Bible calls Him the
Father of spirits, because we are spirits in bodies of clay, and
angels are spirits also, for He said I make My angels spirits.
Devils are spirits, or fallen angels, because when the seventy
that He sent out returned with joy, He said rejoice not because
the spirits are subject unto you.
In the physical realm of revelation, Satan was cast out of the
heart of man into the physical body, which is made of the
earth, shows Satan's fall from heaven to earth. For Paul said,
"In my body there dwelleth no good thing."
Now then, the kingdom of God in man's heart has no
accuser of the brethren. Christ, the Spirit, makes intercession
from the garden of our heart with groans and moans that
cannot be uttered, being touched by the infirmities of our body
that grieves the Holy Spirit whereby we are sealed unto the
day of redemption (the redemption of the body).
The kingdom of God within has justified, predestinated,
glorified, and sealed our soul until the redemption of the body.
Paul said that we wait for the redemption of our bodies, which
shall take place in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the
last trump. We will receive the spiritual body. John said that he
that is born of God does not commit sin. He cannot commit sin
for he is born of God. Every sin is without the body, Paul said,
except the sin of fornication, which is against the body. Christ
died to remove sin in the flesh in God's sight. If you have been
born again, you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, saith
Paul. That which is born of Spirit is spirit, Jesus said.
As it was appointed unto man once to die, and after this, the
judgment, David said that God broke that appointment. This
He did by taking our place on Calvary, smitten of God for us.
Jesus said, "He that keepeth My sayings and believeth on Me
shall never see death." Paul said, "Behold, I show you a
mystery: we shall not all sleep, but we shall be changed."
Enoch went away in a whirlwind, and Elijah by a fiery
chariot. Paul was caught up into the third heaven. John was
caught up into the heavens. The angels ministered to the
apostles, and they minister to the heirs of salvation.
We are spiritual beings and in the Spirit. We can fellowship
angels, who are also in the Spirit. Where two or three are
gathered together in His name, there He is in the midst. We are
in heavenly places, hid with Christ in God, whom the heavens
have received until the time for the restitution of all things. We
are not of this world, for He has chosen us out of the world.
Having been judged by the Word of God, judgment
beginning at the house of God, our sins were remitted by the
forbearance of God and not retained.
We are saved by faith in the finished works of Christ. We
receive an inheritance by predestination with Christ. We are
buried in His death by water baptism in His name, baptized
not to remit our sins but for the remission of our sins, which
the Scriptures says are past, through the forbearance of God.
Not baptized to the death but for the dead. Not the body that
sins shall surely die but the soul that sins shall surely die.
Though the body is unredeemed, it is secure by the works of
Christ as the body of Christ through God's mercy. For blessed
is the man to whom God will not impute sin, saith the
Scriptures. Blessed is the man to whom God imputes
righteousness without works, for where there is no law, sin is
not imputed. Taken from the curse of sin, we are redeemed by
faith. Attributes of good works will show in our lives if Christ
is there, not to justify, but rather to show justification in the
soul. Christ within you, your hope of glory.
Christ springing from within the kingdom in our soul,
radiating through the body by the light of His knowledge,
taking a bodily earth, without form, shaping it into the body of
Christ, driving away the spiritual thorns and thistles (demons,
sicknesses, fears, and death). The shekinah glory of God
changes our old physical earth into the new earth of health,
joy, and happiness, burns the chaff with unquenchable fire,
and we enter into the promised land of God's Word by faith,
with thousands of promises to be enjoyed.
The kingdoms of this world are becoming the kingdoms of
God. We have passed from death unto life, being perfected by
the bond of perfection, which is charity. We have been
translated into the marvelous kingdom of our God. We have
escaped the pollution of the world through Christ. His Word
spoke this world into existence; likewise, He is speaking this
world out of existence by the revelation of His Word. From
faith to faith of His promise, we travel in our soul on a journey
the world cannot see, moving from realms of time into an
eternal creature by faith, which works by love.
The angel shall set one foot on the land and one foot in the
sea, and declare that time shall be no more. The angel said that
the time is at hand, let him that is unjust be unjust still, and he
that is righteous be righteous still. We can throw away our
calendars, which mark our days. Time, which sprang from
eternity at the garden, shall merge into that one great eternal
day. I believe the last minute change is soon to come. God is
speaking the world out of existence every day, and eternity
into existence by the revelation of His Word, for He said it
shall not be you that speaks but your heavenly Father within
you.
