THE HOUSE THAT GOD BUILT
Volume 2, Chapter 9
Conception and Development
14 So then, we may no longer be children, tossed [like ships] to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and wavering with every changing wind of doctrine, [the prey of] the cunning and cleverness of unscrupulous men, [gamblers engaged] in every shifting form of trickery in inventing errors to mislead.
15 Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly]. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, [even] Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
16 For because of Him the whole body (the church, in all its various parts), closely joined and firmly knit together by the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied, when each part [with power adapted to its need] is working properly [in all its functions], grows to full maturity, building itself up in love.
The human body is a magnificent composition of trillions of cells, which join together to form a myriad of tissues, organs and bones that live and function as a single entity. This human organism remains one of the greatest wonders of God’s creation. However, this complex structure begins with a single cell. At the moment of conception within the womb of the woman, a new and unique being is born. As the genetic material from the male sperm joins together with the genetic material of the woman, 2 long generations of genetic lineage come together and bring forth a new expression of their genetic identity. Out of this union of two distinct and separate family trees comes an entity that possesses the sum total of both generational books, making one complete book of life that has never been written before. Each act of conception brings into this world a new expression of life, one that will never be repeated again!
In the Body of Christ, we see this same scenario taking place at the point of our regeneration in Christ. The Body of Christ is immense in its makeup, spanning all of the ages of time from the garden to the time of God becoming the All in the all. The ecclesia of Christ includes not only those that are alive today, but it numbers all the souls of mankind from the beginning of time to the end of time. We have a very large Church, dear brothers and sisters! In fact, we belong to the largest Church that has or ever will exist. Let others go ahead and brag about how large their membership is in their institutional church, ours is bigger. Our Church outnumbers the Catholic Church, the Baptist Denomination, the Church in Christ, the Assemblies of God, the Church of God, the Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church, and all other organized churches COMBINED! Our Church is made up of both those that are visible and those that are invisible, a multi-dimensional Body of Christ that encompasses the entire population of mankind. Our Pastor is the Lord Jesus Christ. He is also our Bishop, our High Priest, our Teacher, our Prophet, our Apostle, our Elder, our Mentor, our Shepherd, our Covering, our Worship Leader, our Financial Director, our Chief Musician, our Youth Leader, our Activities Director, He is simply our EVERYTHING! We are complete in Him. Our Church never closes and we don’t have to drive across town to be a part of it or to enjoy its benefits. We used to GO to church in the past, but we have come to know that WE ARE THE CHURCH! How can you GO to church anywhere when you realize that the true Church is made up of lively stones, its gates are the praises of His people, its walls are made up of salvation and the very foundation is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself? There is only one Church and all other so-called churches are mere imposters and poor substitutes in comparison. But, even this great Church, the Body of Christ, has its beginnings in the process of conception, which takes place in one heart at a time. Without the individual believer, there is no Body of Christ. However, once the process of regeneration begins, it does not stop until the whole Book of Life is expressed in an innumerable company of believers.
In the natural, when the sperm of the male invades the egg of the woman, there begins a process of union between the two single strands of DNA that can only be termed as miraculous. It is the greatest love story ever expressed in human terms. Remember, the 2 strands of genetic material are foreign to each other when they meet, but their destiny is to join themselves together and become one, forming a double strand of DNA that will in turn form an entire body. In a mutual dance of symbiotic acceptance, the two single strands start to line up to each other from end to end, forming a complete double helix of DNA. One cannot overstate how crucial and awesome this melding of two foreign entities into one complete individual is and how selfless this union is when carried out. Each strand of genetic material has 4 bases that must match up with the 4 bases of the matching strand. Adenine always matches up with Thymine and Cytosine always matches up with Guanine. This A-T and C-G matching is what makes up the genetic code of the DNA molecule, from which the entire sequence of growth and development will rely upon to build this grand and divinely designed HOUSE Of GOD. This genetic language is “read” by the cell in the same manner as you are reading this writing. By putting together a specified sequence of letters from the English alphabet, in the form of a “code” of letters which form words and then putting words together to form a sentence and then putting sentences together to form paragraphs and so on, I am able to pass on to the reader my thoughts and intents in an understandable and instructive expression. At least I hope that is the case! As all languages are made of letters of an alphabet put together in a specified “code” of letters that are joined to one another with spaces in between to form an expression of words that represents an understandable language, even so these 4 bases are joined to one another on the DNA molecule to form a cellular language that will dictate everything that concerns this new creation. Hair color, eye color, bone structure, height, weight, intelligence, health, strength, skin pigmentation, dexterity, digestion, teeth, vision, etc., everything will be predesigned by the forming of the new DNA molecule, joining all the attributes of both parents into one unique expression representing both parents but joined in a way that it is not a clone of either one, but a compound expression of both.
In this way, the body is formed and put together by that original Book of Instruction that is formed by the union of the 2 strands of DNA. These “letters” of the 4 bases of A-T and C-G will be placed in segments of genetic information, which are known as “genes”. Each gene is made up of a certain sequence of bases that form an instruction that will be carried out by the cell to make all of the materials of the new entity. In the coming chapters we will follow this process of “Building the House” more thoroughly and we will see how vital it is for the human body to be able to “copy” these genes precisely throughout the life of the body. Just one wrong placement of a letter of the genetic language can have dire consequences on how the cell “reads” the instruction, just as one wrong letter in a sentence can change the entire meaning of the expressed writing. For instance, if I were to leave a note for someone to perform a task for me and if I were to misspell certain key words in that note, the person reading that note would carry out a different task than I had intended. “Run to the store and pick us up some Milk.” A simple and clear instruction with a certain result in mind. But, just one change of a single letter and the result would be something entirely different. “Run to the store and pick us up some Silk.” Just one letter that is miscopied and you can see how vastly different the instruction would be carried out, as there is quite a bit of difference between a gallon of Milk and a yard of Silk! That is how easy it is for the genetic instruction of the Book of Life to be mutated in the slightest degree, which could cause deadly congenital abnormalities to be formed in your body. In genetic language, the instruction of the 4 bases might be expressed as “atcggctat” which would be a precise directive for the cell to perform. However, just one misplaced base would change the entire intention of the directive, “actggctat”, which could bring death instead of life.
This is why we must guard the Truth! If just one letter of the original Word of God were to be changed, can you see how different the expression of the Word would be to those receiving it? That is why the church systems have formed such a monstrous mutation of the intent and purpose of God for all mankind. By imposing their own thoughts and carnal reasonings into the message of Christ, they have doomed the majority of mankind to an endless state of torment and suffering in hell! They have changed the Truth of Christ to the point where God is mad at the whole world, the devil is on the rampage and has God on the ropes, just barely hanging on, Jesus is somewhere in the sky waiting to return to planet earth to wreak havoc on those that do not belong to the church systems of religion, the sick and the afflicted are in that condition because they don’t believe in the church doctrine, we all need a covering of a man over us and we must be subject to a fleshly order of shepherds that have absolute rule and authority over us, and on and on. The Body of Christ is SICK with a mutated message of human expression! Whereas, the Truth is that God loves everybody and has made a covenant with all mankind that guarantees His gift of salvation to each and every one. The Truth is that Jesus, the Christ of God, has never left the earth, is not living in a flesh and blood body and is now resident in every man, woman and child. He will rise up in every house and make Himself known to everyone, everywhere. The Truth is that He is our Head, our Shepherd and we have no need for a man to be over us and to rule over us. Yes, we do need leaders and instructors that are anointed of the spirit of God to teach us the Truth as a confirmation to what the inner Christ is teaching us, but we are not to be subject to them as an anti-christ, “anti” meaning “instead of”. No man is to take the place of Christ in our lives! The Truth is that hell is not a literal place of eternal torment, where devils torment the unbeliever day and night for eternity! Hell is nothing more than a place of correction and instruction which have an end to them! As in any institution of academics, there is a day of graduation, otherwise the whole purpose of such a process of instruction is null and void! The Truth is that all sickness and afflictions are not the result of a personal state of sin and condemnation, but are conditions allowed by God to bring glory to His Name! How different the mutated message of the man-made doctrines of the religious systems are when compared to the glorious Good News that is written upon the tables of men’s hearts!
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them. KJV
What a glorious and curious work the spirit of the Lord has wrought in this earth! Through the design of a physical process of inception, conception and regeneration the Lord God has hidden in mankind the very secret of the spiritual reality of a New Creation Man coming forth in this hour of the Day of the Lord. As in the mother’s womb a new creation is formed with all of the genetic substance of both father and mother, even so in the birthing of the New Creation Man in the womb-heart of mankind, there is coming forth a new thing, a union of God and man in the Pattern of The Son of God. Jesus Christ is the spiritual DNA molecule from which all other sons are birthed. It is impossible to become a true son of God without coming through the substance of JESUS, THE CHRIST OF GOD! Notice, it is not just being birthed from a “cosmic Christ” that this New Creation Man is formed, but it must be an original pattern of spiritual substance formed by the joining of God and man, which was only accomplished in ONE MAN, JESUS. Through the joining of the Holy Spirit with the single strand of DNA in the egg of Mary, there was birthed a new lineage of genetic substance which would seed the entire human race with a new spiritual genetic code, a God-man had come into being through the virgin birth of Jesus, the Anointed Son. The rib of Adam, which was not one of the bones of Adam’s rib cage, but was, in fact, the single strand, or RIB, of Adam’s original DNA, met up with the Holy Spirit in the womb of Mary and was redeemed and freed from the curse. When the substance of the spirit of God, (yes, spirit does have substance!), joined itself with the single strand of the lineage of fallen man in Mary’s egg, there was a conception with mankind by the substance of God Almighty! There is a biological reality that made this possible, put in place by the Creator from the very beginning when He formed man out of the dust of the earth and breathed into him the pneuma of His being. Science now knows that there is a strand of DNA that does not join itself to the sperm of the male during conception and it is found only in the woman! It resides outside of the usual place of the DNA material which is the nucleolus of the most inner chamber of the cell, but by God’s design, this unmixed strand of DNA is found in the mitochondrion of the woman’s cell. In the light of this biological discovery, we can now see why God chose to birth Jesus virginally, instead of mixing the two genealogical trees of Joseph and Mary. By overshadowing the Mitochondrial DNA of Mary, this strand of original, unmixed DNA gave the spirit of God direct access to the original RIB of Adam, which was hidden in the cell of Eve and all women who came from Eve. So, we now have a greater insight into what was declared by the Apostle Paul about Eve after the God-appointed disobedience of eating from the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
1 Tim 2:13-15
13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety. KJV
Throughout the Old Testament, the woman is typecast as a second class citizen, but the Lord had hidden a secret in the woman that would one day allow her and all of her offspring to be “saved in childbearing” which was fulfilled in faithful and honorable Mary. Through Mary’s Mitochondrial DNA the cure for the curse was conceived and formed and His name is Jesus. The virgin birth was not about giving Jesus some kind of advantage over His brethren by giving Him some kind of exemption from the weakness of the Adamic seed. He partook of all the corruption of that Adamic condition through joining Himself to the very RIB that came from the “side” of the double helix of Adam’s DNA. The word “side” has nothing to do with the side of Adam’s chest, but it speaks of the “side” of the double strand DNA molecule from which God built Eve. When Adam and Eve conceived outside of the garden, these two strands became a double strand again, but Eve had a secret that she herself did not even dream of. Can you imagine how many more “secrets” God has hidden in us that are yet to be revealed? Glorious Lord!
By reason of God’s own principal of relativity, if through one man’s sin and subsequent lowering from fellowship with God all men partook of that event, then, as a result of the perfection of one man and the subsequent raising of that singular man into a reinstatement with the Father God, then all men partake of that event also.
1 Cor 15:20-22
20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. KJV
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
13(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man , Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. KJV
Genetic science dictates that once the genetic code is changed, all other cells that are birthed from that code will partake in the state and condition of that code. Adam’s code was one of corruption and death. As a result, every one that was born of the lineage of Eve partook of that fallen reality and this was played out by the end result of death in every man. Death reigned from Adam to Moses, which proves that the physical death sentence that was embedded in the genetic code of Adam’s DNA was passed on to his offspring, with or without the Law. When Christ was born and the Law was fulfilled in Grace, the spiritual death of Adam’s act of disobedience came to an end! Our covenant with death and our agreement with hell came to an end and was disannulled by reason of the Victory of Jesus Christ! You may now raise your hands and praise Him! Glory to His Name, He is the Author and the Finisher of our faith and salvation! This gift of spiritual life has the same action as sin and corruption had when Adam infected all mankind with his fallen self. The arisen Savior has passed His arisen Self on to every man, woman and child and has UNLEAVENED us from the corruption of the Adamic nature. Jesus reinstated the original code of life by rearranging the genetic letters of Adam’s mutated book of life. He took the word, EVIL, and made it into LIVE! Isn’t it amazing how a simple rearrangement of a stated reality can change the outcome irrevocably? The stated reality of death is turned into the reality of life, darkness into light, hate into love, and so on. That is what is happening in our conception today and we are being rearranged and reinstated into the original constitutional reality of our original state and condition we had in the Father before the age of sin. He is worthy of our praise!
Although there are many applications that one can apply to this reality, let me state my application of this conception in this way. The WORD of God is the SPERM of God. The Soul of man is the Egg of man. The Word of God is that which pursues the soul of man with a relentless passion, from the birth of man to the grave and then beyond! The Word of God will not be denied the consummation of its desire to be one with man, to join Himself to this lowly creature and to reconstitute man with the genetic substance of his Heavenly Father. However, man is not to just be raised up into a spiritual state, but there is purpose in his lowering into the dusty likeness of the earth. Out of this corruptible existence there lies the secret of the true wonder of this New Creation Man. He is not angelic, created only with a heavenly identity, but he is formed from the mud of the earth, making him earthy and sensual. He is an odd mixture of opposing elements which make him an anomaly amongst even the animal kingdom of God’s creation, for he has a spirit which had an estate in God before the world was made. This spirit abides in the presence of the Most High, even while encased in an earthly body and dealing with a composite soul, which is subject to vanity and sin. Can you see how terrible and how wonderful this being truly is? He is made up of both worlds, spiritual and natural, yet not able to live totally in either one! He is a pitiful creature that is constantly left in confusion as to the purpose of his existence, filled with contradictions and strange inclinations. On the one hand, he is a prisoner of logic and reason, desiring to only relate to those things that he can see, hear, taste, feel or smell. However, he finds an ancient desire in him to believe in something outside of himself that is greater than him, which causes him to have an inherent desire to worship something and to form a religious philosophy about a Supreme Being. This is the contradiction that comes from the soul of man. Like the egg of the woman, the soul of man wants to be one with the Word, but it can only open itself up to the conception of the Word for short amounts of time, which leaves it barren and unfulfilled. In that case, the soul will take on other suitors, which are lacking the true substance of the Word of God. These suitors are the religious systems of man, dead and impotent structures of religious rhetoric that can only penetrate the soul by forcing themselves upon the soul, penetrating the soul with threats of eternal despair and condemnation, which causes the soul to open up to these false suitors and become joined to the systematic church doctrine. Sadly, this conception will fail in a miscarriage, which is used by the systematic church system to lay the blame on the soul, which causes the soul to repeat this atrocity over and over again, hoping each time to come into the union which it so desperately desires. So it is, that we see the religious systems of man filled with sincere souls, clamoring to be impregnated by the word of men, which have the form of godliness, but are empty of the power to infuse the life of Christ to the soul. This religious conception can only touch the 5 senses of man, which is why the religious church is so caught up in the worship of the church leaders, giving them celebrity status over them. So, the soul settles for this lesser conception, worshipping the flesh of men and allowing them to impregnate her over and over, aborting each pregnancy before full term, then repeating the cycle in an endless state of thirst and hunger.
All through these cycles of the soulish search of man for the reality of returning to his former estate in the Father, the Word of God stays in hot pursuit of the soul, wooing and urging the soul to turn to His advances and to position itself for the union to take place. All through our lives, dear people of God, He has never slackened His pursuit of us, through all the storms of our life, through all the times when we became frustrated and railed against His advances, cursing Him and denying His very existence, He remained our one True Love, burning with the fire of Godly jealousy for us, passionately surrounding us and compassing us about with His embrace of life, with us all the while kicking against Him and giving ourselves to other lovers, He remained steadfast and committed to our union with Him. Then, when we least expected it, when many of us were at our very worst state of soulish behavior, He finally positioned us in the womb of our being where we became vulnerable to His intentions. At that moment, He spoke our name and we heard the voice of our Beloved. For the first time in our soulical life, we remembered who we were and where we came from. Our darkened mind became filled with Light and we were stirred again at the most foundational plank of our being. Then, our spirit leaped within us and for the first time our spirit and soul became one in purpose and design. Something wonderful happened in that moment of conception. Our spirit, our soul and the Word of God became joined and fused together in an act of spiritual oneness that would begin the process of regeneration that would bring us into the oneness that Jesus prayed for those many years ago. This is the New Birth, the true New Birth, not the religious birthing, where you go to a literal altar in a church building, repeat a sinner’s prayer that some man demands you to recite and then joining a roster of church membership. No, this is the New Birth, when the Word of God penetrates our heart and joins itself to our spirit and soul, which then begins the process of growing up into the full stature of the Son of God. This true conception of God and man will bring the New Creation Man to full term, bringing into this world a new expression of the nature and character of our Father, in the pattern of the substance and power of Jesus, The Christ Of God, which will be expressed in a company of sons of God. These sons will bear the genetic code of the Arisen Christ, having the very nature of His being written upon the tables of their hearts. These sons are not a bunch of nuts going around the country naming themselves this or that, and they don’t bear some kind of external title of “Christ”, but they have actually been BORN of CHRIST, having their genetic makeup transformed and rewritten by the union with Jesus and our Father. “I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be made perfect in One.”
Sonship is not a doctrine about some aspect of God’s plan of the ages. It is not an egotistical ideology about our supposed Godhood and superiority over lesser creatures. Sonship is a state of being. You cannot try to become a son of God by simply calling yourself one, or join a sonship group and think that you are a son of God when you start to preach the “message” of sonship. There are many today that believe and preach sonship that have never actually gone through the process of conception and regeneration to “BECOME” sons of God.
10 He came into the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him [did not know Him].
11 He came to that which belonged to Him [to His own — His domain, creation, things, world], and they who were His own did not receive Him and did not welcome Him.
12 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name — [Isa 56:5.]
13 Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!] AMP
Notice the language in this scripture, dear ones! When it uses the word, “know”, it means in the most intimate terms, conceptually knowing Him. The world has not conceptually known Jesus, it has only heard messages and read books about Him. He has come to the world, He is still coming to the world and He will continually come to the world until the world KNOWS Him and conceives His nature and essence. But, to as many as do RECEIVE the Word, He gives them the privilege and the right to BECOME the offspring of God, a new species of creature called The New Creation Man. We have all been born into this world by the union of our natural father and mother, bearing their genetic substance. Even so, as we have borne the earthly image and likeness of the natural, so it is that we will also bear the image and likeness of our heavenly Father through the New Birth. There is a continual doctrinal line of thought permeating the ranks of sonship groups that tries to bypass the process of the New Birth, stating that we are already complete and finished and there is no requirement for us to be birthed at all, let alone to be birthed through the Lordship and Substance of Jesus, the Christ of God. Let me be as clear as I can be on this subject. We must make a distinction between the potentiality of our sonship and the actual conception of that birthing. Jesus gave us the right and authority to BECOME sons of God, but that must be realized by the actual UNION of our soul and the Word. That union only takes place when our hearts are positioned in a surrender to the inner Word of Christ and an impregnation takes place that brings a reversal of our natural lineage of degeneration and gives place to the progressive regeneration of the Resurrected Christ. If we only have a title of potential sonship, we will remain barren of the evidence of a New Life. We can say we have a relationship with God and even take vows of marriage to the Lamb of God, but the true definition of sonship is the evidence of an conception through a change of genetic structure, which results in a reformation of our entire being. The world is not standing on tiptoe, groaning and travailing for the MESSAGE of Sonship, they are waiting to see the MANIFESTATION of the sons of God! Sons INDEED! Not some twinkle in God’s eye, or His divine intention to have sons, but the actual fusion of His substance with the substance of mankind, joining both states and conditions into One New Man. In this union, a new kind of estate is created, made up of both natural and spiritual elements, but so infused and joined together that it cannot rightly be termed either one. Can you see that?
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. KJV
For you are all the children of God by the faith that is in Christ Jesus. Notice that this is the potential for all mankind according to the faith of the Son of God, which will not be denied! Then, we start to experience the actual act of BECOMING, which is an act of being BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST AND PUTTING ON CHRIST. This is the New Birth and the forming of a New Creature in Christ. This is not a baptism of water, dear ones, this is the baptism of death into a New Life. It is the Baptism of Christ, in which He laid His earthly life down and surrendered Himself to the will of His Father and was raised by the power of His Father into a state of Lord and King, having been given a Name (Genetic Identity) of which the whole family of Heaven is named. Once this conception takes place and the process of union begins, nothing stays the same! Before this conception, we had titles and terms for our world that defined the different aspects of our being. We had elements that defined themselves as distinct categories of our relationship with the world. You were either termed a Jew or a Greek, the Jew being the chosen nation of God and the Greek a term that defined everyone else. These are opposites that our world was made up of and so we were limited to the elements so defined. Bond or free, male or female, light and darkness, spiritual and natural, these are all terms that have defined our existence in the world. But, praise the Lord, look at what the spirit of the Lord moved upon Paul to write concerning the results of this conception of Christ in the hearts of men! He takes away the “either” and introduces us to the “neither” of the New Birth! Can it be possible? That there would be something in between these two polarized elements of our existence that is revealed by the New Birth? Oh yes, most certainly there is! This New Creature that is a result of earth and heaven, spirit and natural, life and death, corrupted and uncorrupted, reveals a new state and condition that cannot be termed in such opposite definitions anymore. There is a new substance being formed in the hearts of mankind that will rewrite our language in describing who we are and what we are. We are spirit and we are natural, but in the New Birth we are NEITHER. We are corruptible and we are uncorrupted, but in the New Birth we will be INCORRUPTIBLE! Notice the subtle difference between having an uncorrupted spirit, living with a corruptible soul, and then being incorruptible, unable to be corrupted by any corrupted influence. After the union takes place, all of our parts are swallowed up into the incorruptible seed of Christ, even our mortal body! There is a vast difference between that which has never been corrupted and that which has been corrupted, which is made manifest in the contrast between our spiritual man and our natural man. The spiritual man is in the image and likeness of the Father, but our natural man is brutish and earthy, subject to the limitations and degeneration of the natural world. One is spirit, the other is flesh and blood. The spirit is eternal, the natural is temporary. However, that house that is within us is even now joining itself to our outer tabernacle, swallowing up our external reality into the eternal reality of the new life of the blood of the Lamb. Our earthly house is growing old by the second, having been born to die, it is subject to the sentence of death passed upon it by its Creator. But this is only a part of the story! For that earthly genetic identity is now being changed by the power of an endless LIFE! That old genetic code of Adamic death has been allowed to rule over mankind’s existence, but it is now being impregnated and transformed into a genetic code that disannuls the genetic sentence of death and corruption and brings a new covenant of life and incorruption.
This is why we are not as the angels or like any other heavenly creature, for we are the result of a magnificent design and purpose that was birthed in the mind of God before the age of sin. It is obvious that God desired a New Creature to be brought forth by the Word that would be different from anything that existed prior to its creation. This New Man was to be formed by the compounding of elements of the natural world and the spiritual world. If God only wanted a singularly spiritual creation, then we would never have been formed from the dust of the earth. We were already in the Father before the creation of this earthly dimension. So, what did God have in mind? Something wonderful and curiously wrought in His heart! By the lowering of the spiritual man into a dimension of earthly decay, a New Creature would arise out of the ashes of death and corruption, a RISEN MAN! Notice the two actions that God instigated in His design of bringing forth this New Species of Creature, an action of LOWERING and an action of RAISING. From the spiritual, we were lowered into the earthly and then from the earthly, we are raised into the heavenly. We had to leave our former estate in Him, not because of sin or rebellion, but because of the PLAN! The plan was to take that which WAS and bring it into SOMETHING ELSE. By lowering us out of the estate of His uncorrupted presence and joining us to the earthly elements, we became a “Living Soul”, a compound of two opposites. By the saving of our SOUL, we are being reconstituted with a “SUM” that is greater than the individual parts! The lowering of our spirit into the dust realm was not a curse, it was a design to entwine our being with an enhancement of redemptive constitution. In the raising of the earthly image into the heavenly image, we are raised above every other creative work of the Father and given a place in Him that no other heavenly creature can lay claim to. No other creature can sing the song that we sing, no other creature bears within the threads of their being the signature of our Father like we do, no other creature has been lowered so low into the death of corruptible self and then been raised into such a glorious and victorious inheritance as we have, we are truly a wonder and a glory to the infinite wisdom and creative genius of our Father. He will not leave our soul in the hell of duality and He will not allow His Holy One to see corruption!
The impregnation of our soul with the Word of God is the catalyst for the leavening of our whole man with the Life that is resident deep within every man. The glory of the Holiest of All must be released and manifested in all of the Tabernacle. From behind the veil of our flesh, there is coming a Man Child order that will bring life into all of our parts. This order is set for an appointed time and we are now being prepared to receive its anointing into our existence. Whatever we were before this time, we are that no more. The die is cast and the final outcome is irreversible. We will be as He is in this world, not in seed form, or with potential only, but in fact and actuality we will be His mirror image, bone of His bone, spirit of His spirit, named with His genetic Self. Everything rests upon this union of Christ in the hearts of the sons of God. Thus far, we are still a spirit living in an earthly body, still subject to the afflictions and biological weaknesses of a fallen race, but the New Birth will begin the change to take place that will drag this earthly container into the risen substance of our Lord and King. It is not going to be glorified flesh or humanity. Flesh and blood will not be a part of our makeup in our transformation, it is not going to be spirit either, it is going to be neither! It will be both, but not identified as either one, just as much as water cannot be termed hydrogen or oxygen, although it has both elements in its chemical equation, it is something greater through the union of both elements. You have the element of spirit in you and you have the element of flesh in you, but you are being birthed into a unique state and condition by the union of spirit, soul and body.
The Word has sought you out and has run after you all the days of your life. He will not be denied His union with you, He will pursue you with a blaze of passion and desire until you turn to Him completely and He joins His nature with you. He will allow nothing to stand in His way, whether it be death, sin, corruption, flesh, doubt, sickness, despair, fear, or anything else that causes us to be barren of His life, He will lay waste to it all, until He has you completely. This infusion of His life with our life is the genetic dance that we see played out in type and shadow within the conception process of every natural birth. When we were lowered into this dimension, we lost the reality of our union with Him, but we are being made whole again as He reveals Himself to our darkened conscience. We are ready to meet Him, not in the sky, but in the womb of our soul, as He comes to us in love and grace and brings us into Oneness with Him. Even so, come quickly O Lord!
