Barbara and I were greatly blessed to experience a small piece of the new heaven being formed on earth this past weekend in the mountains of North Carolina. The LOVE of God flooded hearts and blended lives in oneness. We believe this is happening in many spots across the world.
God Is Making A New Heaven and a New Earth! A kingdom of heaven on earth in the hearts of His people first, then from within His people, it is sown out into the natural realm to grow forth a new world. The new heaven is the new world. The Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
The new heaven is planted or seeded in redeemed mankind. The seed of heaven grows and produces a new heaven in the hearts of His people. This is the place of God’s abode on earth, the temple of God. The seed of Christ Jesus is first planted into mankind, then man is planted as the seed of heaven into the world producing a new world. All things are being made new as the rule of God’s kingdom of LOVE is growing, expanding within the hearts of His people who are seeded into the world to bring forth the life of Christ, the glory of God on earth.
The seed of the first Adam was passed down through the generations. Heaven on earth (the Garden of Eden) was lost to fallen Adam and to all of His seed. Fallen mankind sowed the seed of the fallen Adam into the world and corrupted the world.
The seed of Christ Jesus (the last Adam) sowed into mankind produces a NEW CREATION no longer a seed of fallen Adam but a new creature of the seed of God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit. The Seed of God is then sown by man into the world creating a new world after the design and order of the Garden of Eden.
The kingdom of heaven or Kingdom of God is fully restored on earth as Spirit God fully reigns on earth in and through His many grown sons in whom Christ is fully formed.
THE ENTIRE WORK OF APOSTOLIC MINISTRY IS THE FORMATION OF CHRIST IN GOD’S PEOPLE BY THE HOLY SPIRIT!
Paul wrote to the Galatians, “My little children, for whom I labor in birth again UNTIL CHRIST BE FORMED IN YOU.”
All the needs of mankind are completely met by the reality of Christ fully formed in His people. All of the law and the words of the prophets are fulfilled by the love and life of Christ fully formed in the sons and daughters of God on earth – the true body of Christ fully connected to the Head of the body, Christ Jesus in whom all the fullness dwells.
Two of the major characteristics of Christ Jesus in us are LOVEand LIGHT.
The LOVE of God produces POWER, and the LIGHT of God produces WISDOM in us to rule and reign in the Kingdom of God on earth.
God working in us guides and empowers us in every area of production and enterprise needed to provide for all the needs of mankind and all the needs of all that is in the world. Christ in us has full access to all the resources and power of heaven and full authority over all the world as we abide in Him and He abides in us.
All needs and desires of God’s people and eventually the entire earth are provided from Christ Jesus fully formed and abiding within His people.
THE VIRGIN BIRTH
As Christ Jesus became man by the seed of God planted in Mary by the Holy Spirit, so it is with the seed of Christ Jesus planted by the Holy Spirit in His people, His Bride. The purified holy Bride gives birth or brings forth the reign of Christ Jesus on earth in His faithful people who rule and reign with Him.
Just as Mary “knew not a man” but was planted with the seed of Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit, so it is with the birth of Christ Jesus, the King, and His kingdom planted in the inner most being of His bride church. No seed of natural man is involved. It is not any work of man or of man’s religions that birth the kingdom of Christ on earth.
It is the Spirit of Christ fully formed in His Body (His church) that is establishing the Kingdom of God on earth in preparation for the BODILY RETURN OF CHIRST bringing with Him all who have gone on before.
The marvelous mystery of a natural human being formed from a seed in a natural mother is a natural picture of the spiritual reality of Christ the King being formed in us to bring forth the kingdom of heaven on earth as it is in heaven. That deep unexplainable stirring of overwhelming LOVE that you feel in your innermost being is Christ the King of heaven and earth forming in you. It is heaven coming forth on earth.
Father, Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen!
