Who is the Master?

Who is the Master?

I pray you are doing better than my body is today.  I injured myself lifting weights 5 days ago and now I REALLY know what a sciatic nerve is.  How painful!  Don’t we take our bodies for granted until they rebel?  I know I sure do it seems.

I want to share something very powerful that God finally revealed to me today.  Something I have been digging and digging on yet couldn’t find the connection so I let it go and “simmer”.  God can make that happen in a flash and I guess he felt today was the time.  It’s so cool when he allows that to happen, isn’t it?

Thus, today I had a powerful breakthrough on Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 man. I knew for a while now that Genesis 1 man is/was fully spiritual with full spiritual reigning power of the spiritual realm of “Earth” whereas Genesis 2 man (Adam) was physical and natural including his spirit! It’s important to know that even his spirit was “natural” so that’s why I repeated it. Natural just means “downgraded”, “not full strength”, or submissive and veiled to God or spiritual things.   We know natural man is completely veiled to the things of God and can not see or understand them right?

Here is where it went “POP” today when I was reading a “discussion” between two guys on a forum about Genesis 6:1-5 about the “sons of God” marrying the “daughters of men”.  This set of verses has always intrigued me. This is really cool. I hope you stay with me on this and think about it carefully while digging into Gen 1, 2 and Romans 6-8 again after reading this.  I believe you will see what I am saying.

Remember how Genesis 1 it says that mankind were made “male and female”? For the longest time God had not revealed what that meant because I was totally convinced it was powerful spiritual man who rules Earth’s spiritual kingdom and NOT the natural or physical creation.  Please note that both Genesis 1 and 2 man rules over the “beasts” and animals of the earth, birds of the air and fish of the sea.  However, Genesis 1 is the spiritual realm and they are not physical animals and physical fish but rather fallenangels or “birds” and fallen man or “beasts”, etc.  In Genesis 2, it IS the physical realm or the actual animals and fish and birds that Adam (physical man) would rule over.  This is the realm we are familiar with.  They are different realms completely though from Genesis 1 (spiritual) and Genesis 2 (natural, physical)!

They are two completely different “mankind” from Genesis 1 and Genesis 2!  One is spiritual in Genesis 1 and one is physical or natural in Genesis 2.

Ok, with that background in place, think about marriage and the creation of offspring. The “husband” or male produces the “seed” and joins with the “wife” to produce offspring. This would mean that Genesis 1 male spiritual being is the leader and more powerful one and that the Genesis 1 female spiritual being is the more submissive one that is dominated or ruled over by the male spirit. Are you with me so far?

If so, just who are these “male” or dominate powerful spirit beings and “female” submissive spirit beings.

Well, the “female” spirit of Genesis 1 man is none other than “fallen” or natural mankind’s human spirit! It or “she” is controlled and taken into captivity from birth by who? Well, the husband or male (ruler or “father”) spirit of Genesis 1! Can you guess who this is? Who is the ruler of this present fallen world (still)? Who is the personification or “father of sin”?

Let’s look at some scripture to find out.

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. (John 8:44)

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. (1 John 3:8)

These verses are NOT METAPHORS!  Jesus was telling the absolute, solemn truth here!  The Devil REALLY WAS the “father” or “husband” of the unbelieving person he was talking to.  He was married to their spirit and controlled their spirit keeping it under the power of darkness so it was unable to see God and have any faith.  Amazing huh?  Sounds crazy?  Think about it a while.  It will come to you if you are open to the truth.

Satan is really Genesis 1 male Spirit! How he got that position is a whole other topic, but all indications show that he started good (maybe as Lucifer in Is 14) and sinned and became “darkness” and “evil”. He gained power and control of all Earth’s spiritual realm and all mankind’s spirits who are the “female” or submissive side of Genesis 1 mankind but also the physical beings (Adam) in Genesis 2. When he inhabits one, he is it’s “master” or “husband”.

Satan IS sin and the “father” or originator of ALL sin just like Jesus IS righteousness and the source of all righteousness!

This is very powerful because now you can go and read Romans 6-8 and anytime you see “sin” put the word “Satan” in there. Anytime you see the word “righteousness” put “Jesus” in there. Believers and unbelievers spirits (and souls) are the “wives” or “bride” and Jesus or Satan is the husband. Satan and his “wives” (unbelieving, natural spirits and souls) are under the power of darkness which is the law! This is sin and death which separates him and unbelievers from God.  God tells us in the OT that he “wrapped him (Lucifer/Satan) in darkness”.  I believe it is in Ezekiel but you can dig into it.  It’s really amazing.

Thus, at new (spiritual) rebirth, a person’s soul and spirit becomes joined or “married” to Christ who IS righteousness. The person is no longer attached to “sin” or Satan in any way (as Christ is now their husband FOREVER!) but their body will die because it is still part of the natural creation yet under the curse. It still has this power of death in it (sin/separation) and must die. But, the person is now fully ONE with LIFE and RIGHTEOUSNESS who IS CHRIST to live FOREVER!

Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.  (John 6:47)

Jesus is the TRUE Genesis 1 spiritual MAN (while Satan is the FALSE version of this fallen World) or the “male” part of God’s spirit that finally joins with natural man’s spirit (and soul) to make him WHOLE finally!

This is so amazing and I thank the Lord for finally revealing this connection. Suddenly so many things are coming together especially when God talks about marriage. He is REALLY talking about the union of a person’s soul/spirit with Christ or Satan. They are either a slave (married) to sin as unbeliever or a slave (married) to righteousness as believer with NO mixing EVER!  All the old creation is under the curse of darkness/separation and WILL DIE.  But, the GREAT news is that the blood has reconciled ALL creation and ALL creation will PASS THROUGH IT to be REBORN!

namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:19)

Isn’t this amazing? This, my friend is the TRUE and most amazing sovereign plan of God!

Now, you can go back through Romans 6-8 and see a whole NEW story.  The truth!

Have a great Sunday.

Do you ever think about what it means to be a “Human being“?

I realize that almost all of my life I have been a human “doing” always striving and struggling to become something other than what I simply was.  I never ever really arrived at the place I was trying to reach.   I have concluded it was all an illusion.  I believe this is a struggle of the entire human family.

I see it in myself, my family, my children.  Everyone I know. I believe is why it has always been so difficult connecting with and talking to the family I grew up in.  They were and still are a strong family of “doers”. They have always been this way and most of their existence still to this day is based on “doing” to become or striving.  This was my struggle, but God seemed to have different plans.  God started putting me through his refining fire and I had to let go of “doing to become.  I simply no choice when faced with thick impenetrable walls of hopelessness.  I kept being put into situations that where there was nothing I could do but surrender.  It was very difficult, but I had to let go and learn to fully trust God.  For me, this is ongoing as I do pick it back up at times and believe I am still “running the show”.  I  have found that this “striving to become” is much stronger in men than women as men are very task oriented. Men are also much more disconnected from their true heart and feelings because of this.  I know coming from a family of six men, no girls and having two boys myself. I see it in my boys, my brothers and myself.  Men are trained in this culture to be this way.  Coincidence?  I don’t think so.  I believe they are completely related.  The more task oriented a person is, the more they are disconnected from their true being, their true heart and true feelings.  They do not know who they are.

Am I wrong?  I don’t think I am.

This all changes when God begins to break the outer man who is based ondoing“.  This is not a pleasant event or process.  It feels like death and that’s what the Bible calls it – death of “self”.  It is all part of the “baptism of fire” when a person is immersed or “baptized” into God’s very Spirit.  Check out Matt 3:11:

“As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire (Matt 3:11)

God’s fire does hurt like a place that is VERY hot, but it doesn’t destroy you.  God’s fire is not destructive like fire in the natural realm.  His fire really refines you and removes the “dross” like a good blacksmith does to gold.  God’s fire are all the difficult and painful life circumstances that we are put in where we found ourselves helpless or powerless.  It is painful and man calls it “death to self”. This selfish outer man is the blindness that keeps us from not only seeing God, but seeing ourselves, our true self as well.  This selfish outer man is very clever and deceptive and he will use any and all things to remain on the throne.  He is very clever at hiding in religious activities so we can’t “see” him.  God sees him though as he can’t hide from God.  God will break him.  Once God breaks him and the outer man finally cracks, then and only then can LIFE spring forth from the living waters that Jesus promised – the Spirit of God himself.  Then God can really use a person for his Kingdom purposes of Life.  The life that flows out is God’s very life of Christ inside but we must experience first death just like he did in order to experience his life.  See 2 Cor 4:10.

always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body (2 Cor 4:10)

Is this just for “believers”?

Not according to Jesus in Mark 9:49.

For everyone will be salted with fire Mark 9:49

All of us enter into this world believing WE are God and in charge of our lives.  Our self-powered and “self-willed” life truly must die first in order to live our true and real life – Christ.  When this begins to occur a person truly begins to enter rest because they stop “doing to become” and instead truly realize they are already there!  But it is not without a lot of struggle to “let go”.  They will also begin to see all the painful circumstances and things that happened in their life as all part of God’s sovereign plan and purpose for them.  This is a powerful and intimate time with God and they will realize something else very basic yet amazing.

They are a human “be”-ing. 

They no longer “do”, they just “be”.  They are entering the 7th spiritual day of God’s rest.  They have entered the “promised land” of God – Christ himself.   Now, this is all experience only.  They were already there in their true inner man, their spirit man when they believed.  But, now that truth is manifesting or breaking through to their outer, natural man where our experience or “soul” takes place.  Now we actually see it happening in our normal, everyday life.

This is an amazingly powerful transformation process that is very painful at times, but when they get across the river Jordan there are many rewards. They know many new things.  They know that Christ really DID finish the work at the cross. Christ really did fully and finally complete Adam. Of course, this is all true in the realm of truth or the spirit for now, but this is where man starts to know this. Deep inside himself. It is from this deep place that this powerful truth begins to give him rest. And then it works its way outward to his outer man and into the natural physical realm.

And begins to KILL him. That’s right. It destroys him. The outer man has to die.  He is all about “doing” and not “being”.  He does not understand the finished work.  He has NO faith but is only under law due to self-righteousness.  I don’t mean he has to die physically, but that is the ULTIMATE finale of him.  I hope he will “die” or surrender before the body dies, but it is up to the father.  I mean he has to stop “trying” to become and trying to strive to become something other than who God says he is.  He has put us under law and we have received his condemnation, guilt and shame far too long.   He has to be shut up. God will shut him up. That is what the law does. It shuts up and puts to death the outer man or the flesh. He will eventually surrender if God wills it while the body is alive.  If not he will fully surrender (die) when our natural body dies.  Hopefully, it is before he dies physically. Once he is “dead”, then and only then, can a person’s TRUE life spring forth who is CHRIST himself!

But, he is very clever as he hides in our fallen human bodies.  He will NOT give up the fight completely until our natural bodies die.  He is always trying to work his way back onto the throne of your life in very subtle, clever and deceptive ways.   I suspect he is even writing part of this message.  We have to continue to ask God to show him to us so we can stand still and allow God to kill him again.  This process called “repentance” is ongoing and the quicker we can do this the less pain we feel.  It really is an ongoing process to fight and stay in God’s rest.

Entering God’s rest

Once the outer man gives up and “dies”, then a person can enter the true rest, God’s rest of the 7th day. It can’t be entered by any law-based thinking of the outer man or by any part of the outer, natural man as that is the one who is against us here. Only Joshua (Jesus) can take you across the Jordan to the land of Canaan (promised land of rest).  And you can only get there by the full death (surrender) of the outer man.  This happens once the father stops the “waters” of the Jordan” that were stopped all the way back to the city of Adam! 

Do you see the powerful thing God has been telling us in the Old Testament?

Once a person experiences this most powerful crossing of the Jordan with Jesus their guide, they realize they really do NO LONGER LIVE and that it really is Christ who lives in and through them.  Gal 2:20   They have entered the true rest of God.  They have tasted of the Heavenly realm and will not want anything else.  They will cross back and forth over the Jordan in their experiences, but they themselves always remain in Canaan.  God will continue to provide victory and rest as we stay close to his feet and stare into his eyes.

This is one powerful experience my friend that I hope and pray we will all experience if we haven’t already.  It’s FULL surrender of EVERYTHING!  For some of us like me who are very stubborn, it takes a lot of pain and suffering to arrive at.  The reward is most awesome I believe.

This is the beginning of a person’s real and true life – Christ.

Enjoy this journey.
