CHRIST THE ANTIDOTE REGARDING DEATH

Part 125

The One Tree In The Centre Of The Garden!

A number of years ago it came to our attention that a small number of prolific end-time writers were of the opinion that the two trees in the middle of the garden were in fact one & the same, we sat on that until recently it was once again brought forcibly to our attention & that in our honest opinion they were in fact right. So we present the following for your perusal.''GOD made all kinds of trees grow from the ground, trees beautiful to look at and good to eat. The Tree-of-Life was in the middle of the garden, also the Tree-of-Knowledge-of-Good-and-Evil.'' Gen 2:9 The Message.''And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.'' Gen 2:9. King James Version.


''And out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight or to be desiredgood (suitable, pleasant) for food; the tree of life also in the center of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of [the difference between] good and evil and blessing and calamity.'' Gen 2:9. Amplified.


Are we yet of the opinion that depending on the setting that the word and or also is a conjunctive word & does not necessarily mean that the subject would need to mean it is a separate one. This would seem very much like one of the so called mysteries that Bill Britton has has shared with us on page 4 in this article. If we are inclined to be literalistic this would make it hard to understand the many hidden analogies that our wonderful God has for us for we are informed a number of times that ''the letter kills but the Spirit gives life''. Incidentally the reason that so many have personified the devil is that the word devil is from the word evil with simply with a D added to it, & for centuries evil has become a personified being called the DEVIL, which of course is part of the 30 & 60 fold religiosity understanding that most would have us believe in this day!

Tabernacles A Most Progressive Exciting Experience!

We are presenting part of this theme from an earlier post. ''The word TABERNACLE is from the word skene # 4633 = tent, cloth or hut; & is akin to, skenos # 4636 = a hut or temporary residence, THE HUMAN BODY (as the abode of the spirit):- tabernacle.''


We would add, this is actually referring to our skenos as Deity is housed within our tabernacle our tent our skenos or body of skin! This applies to EVERY MAN!

In the days of Eli the prophet, his two son's Hophni & Phinehas, desecrated the temple & brought shame & disrepute upon themselves & their father. A prophet was sent to Eli to warn him of the future with some dire predictions – this incidentally was backed up by what Samuel was told in his first encounter with his Progenitor – part of the prophets message was,


''And I will raise up for Myself a faithful priest (Priest), who shall do according to what is in My heart & mind. And I will build him a sure house, & he shall walk before my anointed (Anointed) FOREVER.'' 1 Sam 2: 35. Amplified.

A similar judgment is happening today, a disrespect of the once hallowed things of Deity in many of the Pentecostal churches & others even now, & will continue until, we realize that both the Outer Court & The Holy Place or 30 & 60 fold is not going to bring in our Deity's perfection! Why? For He has saved the BEST WINE UNTIL NOW, or last. This above Priest if you can receive it – is a prophecy alluding to & concerning the Melchizedek Priesthood & the Man-child that our great Progenitor is raising up today..... What incurred the judgment of God was the disrespect that the then Priests & leaders had for His Temple or Tabernacle & especially the Ark of the covenant! Now to remind us again; Where is the ARK, THE MOST HOLY PLACE Today? Within US of course. The Tabernacle in the wilderness was of course a type, or a metaphor of ourselves or the individual, SPIRIT, SOUL & BODY!

Now we wish to bring this event into today's scene, in the Davidic Tabernacle that Deity is raising up in us at this present moment, – to be true to type there is to be no Outer Court or Holy Place in our thinking, as forerunners it first must start in us, then it will catch on with others & then it will become a reality in the manifested son's of our Deity, but it first must begin in us.

''When God speaks of a NEW [covenant or agreement], He makes the first one OBSOLETE (out of use). And what is obsolete (out of use & annulled because of age) is ripe for disappearance & to be DISPENSED WITH ALTOGETHER.'' Heb 8:13. Amp. What is this really meaning? Is it a LAW?

No, No! It is a choice but there are requirements!


To be truthful the Melchizedek Priesthood, the Tabernacle of David, & the Manifestation of the Son's of God are all different aspects of the same thing.


The following is an excerpt from a Bill Britton writing. Quote ''The day of the Lord is upon us, in which the Old Testament prophecies will be fulfilled. Yes, the many member-d company of the sons of God will take the Book out of the hands of the religious leaders, and stand up with the truth that will bring light and life to creation. I know that verse 28 of Luke 4 says that all those in the synagogue were filled with wrath and rage when they heard His word, I know He was rejected by the system of religion in His day, and that same thing will happen to the sons. But His words of life still prevailed. Truth cannot be destroyed. The Book will come alive again, and the voice of the Son will be heard. Thus saith the Lord!

It was here, on the 7th day, they cast Him out of the city, and would have thrown Him over a cliff, but He passed through their midst and went on His way. So shall be the conflict in the Day of the Lord, religion is still trying to cast out the Son, and the son-ship message. But God's order shall survive their wrath, the victory is ours!

From here, Jesus went to Capernaum, and on the Sabbath day He entered the synagogue and began to teach with authority. Have you enjoyed the divine revelation God has been giving in these last days? Have you appreciated the authority by which men of God have spoken? Let me assure you that in the 7th day there will be a word of authority such as we have never experienced. There will be teaching by divine revelation on the Kingdom of God that will stun and amaze everyone. Mark 1:22 says: ''And they were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes''. New American Standard Bible.'' Unquote.


''Jesus said to them, Truly I say to you, in the new age (''palaggensia'' or spiritual rebirth) [the

Messianic rebirth of the world], when the Son of Man shall sit down on the throne of His glory, you who

have [become My disciples, sided with My party and] followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones and

judge the twelve tribes of Israel.'' Mat 19:28. Amplified.


Please notice the word rebirth, the following passage would call it the new birth day. So ahead of us we are looking forward to a spiritual NEW BIRTH-DAY.


''The and Jesus said to them: Indeed I say to you, that you the having followed me, in the new birthday when may sit the son of the man upon a throne of glory of him, shall sit also you upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of the Israel.'' Mat 19:28. Gk Diaglott N.T.


We would add that contrary to popular opinion, the culmination of our new birth does not in fact take place until the birth of the Man-child who ushers in the NEW-BIRTH DAY! Rev 12:5.


Yes Tabernacles is a most progressive & exciting experience.

Which is bringing forth to our understanding of the true meaning of,


Crossing The Line Of Trying To Attain And Letting That Which Is Within Appear As Outward

Form!


The Kingdom Of God Being Within!


This is also a part repeat from an earlier article. ''Neither shall they be declaring 'Lo! here!' or 'Lo! there!'

for lo! the kingdom of God is inside of you." Luke 17:21. Concordant Literal.


Neither will they say, Behold, it is here! or, behold, it is there! for behold, the kingdom of God is within you.'' Luke 17:21. Lamsa NT.


From The Ancient Aramaic Eastern Texts of the Peshitta. ''neither shall they say, Lo, here! or, There! for lo, the kingdom of God is within you.'' Luke 17:21. American Standard Version.


''Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.'' Luke 17:21. KJV.


STRONGS # Entos en-tos' From G1722; inside (adverb or noun): - within.

The weight of evidence that the above verse would be alluding to is that the Kingdom of Deity being

only within ourselves has much more in its favour than what some would suppose in that they would feel

that the kingdom is also outside of us, although this may be true in one respect; but according to the

evidence we have introduced for your perusal, not so, according to this particular verse. Here are a list

of translations that would agree with the KJV & many others. For support the DRB, the GNB, the GW,

Murdock, the NKJV, the RV, the WNT, WEBSTER & the YLT would all agree with what Jesus was

inferring in Luke 17:21. That we mankind are the possessors of the true kingdom. Where? Within the

very confines of our being; yes WITHIN!


The important point that Jesus was making was that we are actually the KINGDOM; One as a singular entity & Two in our pre-Genesis creation corporatism. Our superlative Christ-consciousness identity is once again brought to the fore & our foreordained nature is no doubt witnessing to the wonderful status that our great Deity has GIVEN TO MAN. In the future as man realizes this, every man shall come into his own, 'every man in his own order or time'. You who are reading this, Spirit would also want you to realize that Adam in His true status was made in the IMAGE of his Wonderful Deity & we all proceeded from Adam; Did we not? So from & in many ways-directions of viewing our true identity we are most definitely ''fearfully and Wonderfully made''. In truth the kingdom of Deity is definitely WITHIN EVERY MAN whether he yet realizes it or not!


George Hawtin the well known great end-time writer once wrote.

''Among the thistles on the hill

In tears sat little sorrow.

I see a black cloud in the west;

Twill bring a storm tomorrow.

And if it storms, where shall I be

And what will keep the rain off me?

Woe is me! Said Little Sorrow.


''Wait on the Lord'' Dear Christian friend, to wait is the is the hardest thing we impatient people have to

do. It must have been very difficult for Abraham and Sarah to wait long years for the pledge and

assurance given by God that their seed would be as the sand of the sea for number and as the stars of

heaven for multitude. It must have been an embarrassment to Abram to have his name changed to

Abraham, meaning the father of a multitude, at a time when they had no children at all and when both of

them were far past the age of childbearing. We may rush about to fulfill the promise, but God says, ''Wait''

''Though it tarry it shall surely come'' ''I waited patiently for the Lord, and He inclined unto me and heard me.'' Saint of God, begin today to wait patiently before God it is a marvelous secret''. Unquote.


The Words Of Jesus, According To The Aquarian Gospel!


There are a multitude of things yet to be said; Things that this age cannot receive, because it cannot

comprehend. But, Lo, I say, before the great day of the Lord shall come, the Holy Breath will make all

mysteries known---- The mysteries of the soul, of life, of death, of immortality; the oneness of a man with

every other man and with his God. Then will the world be led to truth, and MAN will be the truth when

she has come, the comforter. She will convince the world of sin, and of the truth of what I speak, and of

the rightness of the judgment of the just; And then the prince of carnal life will be cast out. And when the comforter shall come I need not intercede for you; for you will stand approved, and God will know you then as He knows Me. Aquarian. 162:6-11.


One has well written. ''There are a multitude of things yet to be said; things that many in this age

cannot yet receive, because it cannot comprehend. But, Lo, I say, before the great day of the Lord shall

come, the Holy Breath will make all mysteries known--- The mysteries of the soul, of life, of death, of

immortality; the oneness of a man with every other man and with his God. Then will the world be led to

truth, and man will be the truth, when SHE has come, the comforter. She will convince the world of sin,

and of the truth of what I speak, and of the rightness of the judgment of the just; and then the prince of

carnal life will be cast out. And when the comforter shall come I need not intercede for you; for you will

stand approved, and God will know you then as He knows me.'' The prince of carnal life is none other

than our mistaken identity, our lower fleshly identity!'' Unquote!

These are wonderful words of hope for everyone eventually, all mysteries will become understood

by all men as as the book of Genesis would affirm, every man originated from Adam who was made in

the perfect Image of his great God & Adam was our forefather. Was he not? Some may not approve of

any book other than the King James Version. Yet are we aware that according to many students &

translators the King James bible is guilty of more mistakes than any other translation. Hence we have

today so many newer translations that have seen this & have corrected the many inconsistencies. For

myself the Amplified translation has been a great help in aiding & understanding & the opening of the

Third Veil within ourselves!


In the dense forest of words I was lost,

In the LETTER of truth was tiredness and fear.

BUT IN YOUR SPIRIT IS SHADE WATER AND REST.

Can Christians grow by holding firm

To doctrine or to creed?

The Shepherd leads His sheep to where

They in new pastures feed.

Can food of yesteryear suffice

For hunger of today?

Was it not for our daily bread

That He taught us how to pray?

A soul can never grow in grace

That is content to stay

In blissful contemplation of

The things of yesterday,

And live alone in memory

Of some bright evening star

His grace had sent to lead us on;

Not keep us where we are!

Unfolding revelation is

God's purpose for this hour.

Why live in flesh? The stratospheres

Are vibrant with His power!

There is a Spirit realm to which

We can triumphant rise,

And blend redemption's melodies

With music from the skies.

This was written many years ago by the well-known Dr Charles, Price.


However I Tell You Truly, There Are Some Standing Here

Who Will Not Taste Death Till They See The Kingdom Of God!


''But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who shall not taste of death until they see the kingdom

of God. And about eight days after these sayings, He took Peter and John and James and went up into a

mountain to pray. And as He prayed, the appearance of His countenance was altered, and His clothing

was dazzling white. And behold, two men talked with Him, who were Moses and Elijah, who appeared in

glory and spoke of His exodus, which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. But Peter and those with

him were heavy with sleep. But fully awakening, they saw His glory, and the two men who stood with

Him. And in their parting from Him, it happened that Peter said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be

here. And let us make three tabernacles, one for You and one for Moses and one for Elijah; not knowing

what he said. And as he was saying these things, a cloud came and overshadowed them. And they feared

as they entered into the cloud. And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is My Son, the Beloved,

hear Him. And when the voice occurred, Jesus was found alone. And they were silent, and told no one in those days anything which they had seen.'' Lk 9:27-36. MKJV.


The way is Christ, the gate is Christ, and you must come up by the way of Christ. No man came unto

God but by the Christ. The kingdom of the Christ will come; yea, some of you who hear me now will not

pass through the gates of death until you see the kingdom come in power.---Then Jesus, taking Peter,

James and John, went forth unto a mountain to pray. And as he prayed a brilliant light appeared; his

form became as radiant as a precious stone; His face shone like the sun; his garments seemed as white

as snow; the son of man became the son of God. He was transfigured that the men of earth might see

the possibilities of man. When first the glory came the three disciples were asleep; a MASTER touched their eyes and said Awake and see the glory of the Lord. And they awoke, and saw the glory of the heavenly world, for they beheld two men from thence stand forth beside the Lord. And Peter asked the master who awakened them, Who are these men who stand beside the Lord? The master said, These men are Moses and Elijah, who are come that you may know the heaven and earth are one; that masters there and masters here are one. The veil that separates the worlds is but an ether veil. For those who purify their hearts by faith the veil is rolled aside, and they can see and know that death is an illusive thing. And Peter said, Praise God! 129: 8-20a. Aquarian Gospel.


These words were spoken a little over 2000 years ago. We have now entered into the Age of Aquarius. These words surely have an important & improved meaning for us in this latter day understanding. But know this it is a far further & higher realization than what the early church were believing & understanding.


Run For Your Life!

Bill Britton would share with us regarding a portion of the life of David & Saul.


''Anointed to rule? Look at him! Hiding in a cave....hunted through the forests like a flea on a dog. He tried to serve in Saul's house, even married his daughter, worked for Saul like a trooper. But he was never truly received. Saul hated that anointing, that divine ability.

How often have we tried to serve in the organized systems of man, even ''marrying'' into their systems, and giving our time, strength and ability to build them up. But there is a divine anointing that sets us apart. There can be no compromise.

Finally we find ourselves fighting for survival, hidden away as it were from the eyes of the public. Exploits forgotten, the masses staying with Saul's organized system. It seems that doubts would flood in and try to destroy the vision, and make us forget the prophetic word to us regarding the Throne. But even in the caves, the anointing is there. Songs in the night flow out from weary vessels, bringing new life and hope. When will God bring about the Fulfillment of His word? Some would slay Saul and hurry it up, but not the David company. The times are in the Fathers hands. We will wait upon the Lord, and have confidence in our God. He is sovereign, and will bring his Word to pass''.


The Final Anointing!


Finally we see God's plan completed. Or perhaps I should say, begun. Saul's 40 years are finished, and he

is overcome by his enemies. And those sons of Saul that saw and believed in the coming of a new order

in the Kingdom, yet would not leave Saul's house and died also with him in the battle.

Then David begins to rise on the scene. The Throne is waiting. In 2 Samuel 3:39 David acknowledges that he has been anointed king. The people begin to recognize this. He finds favor with the elders of Israel. In chapter 5 of 2 Samuel we find the elders of Israel coming to David in Hebron, and in verse 3 it says ''and they anointed David king over Israel.'' Why? Had he not been anointed by Samuel years before? Yes, but that anointing was upon a beardless youth. Now David is 30 years of age, a mature man of stature, a man ready to take the reins of government. He is a man with a beard. And on the day that the anointing oil came upon his beard, he sat on the throne of Israel, and reigned over God's promised land.'' Unquote.


In Our True Identity We Are Now A Christ!


This is from an earlier Post. ''Man because he worshiped Jesus the man, he failed to apprehend & realize that in his true identity that he man was actually a Christ, a savior to the world ''as I am in the world so are you'' so man in seeking good on the outside he lost the sense of his true identity which is found only within in his true inner self. Another way of putting it, in worshiping Jesus the man, the Christ within them was lost, or shall we say, in seeking good through the man Jesus, men have failed to find the omnipresent Christ which is within their very own consciousness & to realize that he or she or all of mankind is actually now a Christ in 'his-her' own right.


''If I go not away the Comforter will not come to you'' this makes it abundantly clear that those who were depending on the man alone could not receive the Comforter, the Spirit, He Jesus the man had to leave them so that mankind could be shown a deeper walk. Depending upon any MAN even Jesus the man can prevent you from receiving the Comforter!

We are convinced that unless man begins to lose his earthly sense of understanding, that is being a

separate entity as opposed to being a corporate Christ identity he cannot raise above dare I say it his

'dog eat dog' mentality.

''Because the human scene is entirely a misconception through miss-perception, any thought of helping, healing, correcting, or changing the material picture must be relinquished in order that we may see the ever present Reality''. J.S.G.

Truth most times does not appeal to our human reasoning & when we are confronted by it we need to

search our hearts deeply to see if it is really truth, what we are saying is that we need to look at all scripture with an allegorical understanding. As one has well said, ''Be suspicious of a truth that seems reasonable to you''. For instance, Jesus feeding the multitude with a few loaves & fishes, healing the sick, raising the dead, walking on water. This is not reasonable to the natural mind. If all of this could be understood through the reason of the natural mind all of Christendom would be teaching it as a now today possibility. These things must be recognized not by our natural mind but by our eternal internal within perception. We would strongly say this, whatever was possible to Christ-consciousness in the time of Jesus is more than possible to those who are in the Christ-consciousness today. Christ-consciousness has not changed, we in our perception of it have not yet fully grasped it, but be encouraged a change is now on the agenda. The ''Father is once again about to be fully glorified in the Corporate Son''


''For of old no one has heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides You,

Who works and shows Himself active on behalf of him who [earnestly] waits for Him''. Isa 64:4. Amplified.


Man Becoming Perfected Light!


''The soul is drawn to perfect Light by four white steeds, and these are Will and Faith, and Helpfulness and

Love. That which one wills to do, he has the power to do. A knowledge of that power is faith; and when faith moves, the soul begins its flight. A selfish faith leads not to to light, there is no lonely pilgrim on the way to light. Men only gain the heights by helping others gain the heights. The steed that leads the way to Spirit life is Love; is pure unselfish Love.'' Aquarian 59:2-6.


''Then Jesus turned and saw them following and said to them, What do you seek? They said to Him,

Rabbi (which is called, being translated, Teacher), where do you live? He says to them, Come and see. They came and saw where He lived, and stayed with Him that day, for it was about the tenth hour.'' Jn 1:38-39. MKJV.

One has written concerning the above verse. ''When the disciples asked Jesus where he lived, he answered. Come and see. Yet elsewhere we are told that Jesus had nowhere to lay his head. We read into this paradox this meaning --- that Jesus lived constantly with his Father in heaven—heavenly places - (which was his true abode), in a condition which you may endeavor in meditation to touch, if only for a flash, when some inner stimulus draws you to up to a place beyond power of description, but which intuition tells you is your spiritual home. Jesus dwelt there constantly. As you develop through meditation; as you reach to that place of holiness, great light and beauty, gradually you will be able to increase the duration of your stay. In the beginning you will only vaguely be conscious of it, then in a flash, you will touch the true glory; as time goes on you will be able to remain longer. There are still great teachers, called avatars, who can enter into this state of bliss. So great was Jesus that he was able to remain indefinitely in this state of heavenly consciousness. You will notice that the disciples went with Jesus and dwelt with him awhile; in other words, by the light and glory emanating from him he was able so to quicken the disciples' consciousness that they too could dwell with him for a while in the heavenly state. Through his power and love he was able to impart this gift of vision. The spiritual teacher of today, in lesser degree, can also enable his disciple to raise his consciousness, which is why a teacher can prove so helpful. Of course, as Jesus said again and again --- ''the Father that dwells in me, he does the works, I do nothing of myself'' Jn 14: 10, 8:28. He was merely the channel, pure and perfected, for the

manifestation of the God in man which touches and raises the disciple to the vision glorious.


''Without faith it is impossible to please God.'' Doubt and unbelief is the exact opposite to FAITH.

Remember every man is spiritually made in the EXACT IMAGE of God.


''So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.'' Gen 1:27. Col 3:9-10.


Simon The Twofold Stone!


''One of the two who heard John and followed Him was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first found his

own brother Simon and said to him, We have found the Messiah (which is, being translated, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus saw him, He said, You are Simon the son of Jonah; you shall be called Cephas (which translated is, A stone).'' Jn 1:40-42. MKJV.


The following is very well written by one who is well versed on the subject of Latter Day understanding.. ''The naming of Simon as a stone is interesting and suggests that Simon at that time was a man of strong mentality, strong in intellect. Although Jesus knew that there was great good in Simon, he called him a stone because he was so unresponsive. There is life indwelling in the stone, but it is difficult to get at it! This recalls another saying of the Master, when he referred to the very stones crying out (Lk,19:40. Here we have it again you see --- a power so great that it must win a response even from those as hard as stone.''


The Aquarian Gospel would encourage us by informing us that ''A selfish faith leads not to light. There is no lonely pilgrim on the way to light. ''Men only gain the heights by helping others gain the heights.''


We would close with this thought. Long before the earth was created --- even before Abraham. Long before the earth was created, The Great Spirit we call him Christ revealed he was Son of God. When Jesus said, ''I am the way the truth and the life'' Jn 14:6. This was not Jesus the man who was speaking, it was the Christ the third aspect of the Godhead saying, I AM the truth within you... I AM the love within you... I AM the life within you for I AM come to give you eternal life!
