Many Christian believers, especially in America, are not prepared for the spiritual realities of the manifesting Kingdom Age.
Most people are not even aware of the massive evil resistance already attempting to destroy anything of God and His Kingdom from manifesting into this world.
American youth are being misled by evil persuasions of trickery to despise the love and works of God and His Kingdom.
The sleeping Church flounders around seeking to adjust to culture rather than bringing forth the real kingdom of the love of God.
The great hope now is the rapidly growing remnant of young people that are turning to God with their whole hearts and losing their lives to receive the passionate love life of heavenly wisdom and power of God in becoming one with Spirit God in a pure holy love relationship.
The Bright Light of God’s Kingdom of Love
The Light of God is shining forth with more clarity in this new era of Kingdom Reality.
The Holy Spirit is revealing the deeper living substance of His holy Love, Wisdom, and Power of His Kingdom that has been placed in our hands.
The Kingdom advancing in the hearts of mankind in agreement with Father God brings forth The Kingdom of Heaven manifesting on earth.
The extreme fanatical evil Antichrist uprising of violent and hysterical deceived souls is necessitating the hastening of the love-based worldwide cleansing judgments of God making way for the fullness of The Kingdom of God.
The passion of “first love” is being renewed in the glorious light of God’s presence among us. The excitement of first love is being added to the strong mature love of God adding strength and increased life to the manifesting of The Kingdom of God.
The soul of man (mind, will, and emotion) is renewed as Spirit Christ Jesus fills our redeemed human Spirit with the pure holy love and life of Spirit God.
Divine Health and Glorified Bodies
The body of man is going to be redeemed and renewed into eternal life without sickness or death.
Heavenly or divine health is a part of the redemption of Christ Jesus. There is a glorified body for us.
The big question is, “When do we receive the glorified body that can fully inherit The Kingdom Life?”
“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit The Kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.” 1 Corinthians 15:50-53.
What and when is the last trump of the trumpet?
The quick answer that most will come with is that it is the end of all things. However, that may not be entirely correct . Paul said, “Behold I show you a mystery.”
This is a mystery which means that the natural understanding is not able to grasp the full meaning of it. Spirit God must reveal in our spirits the greater reality of the mysteries of God.
The seven trumpets in the Book of Revelation are messages regarding an era or age of specific works of God. The seventh or last trumpet is the proclaiming of The Kingdom of God.
“Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” Revelation 11:15.
“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming manifesting or presence. Then the end (telos = goal reached), when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. For “He has put all things under His feet.” 1 Corinthians 15:22-27.
This does sound like the end of an era and the beginning of another. It is the beginning of the fullness of The Kingdom of God ruling on earth as all other rule or authority is put down and enemies defeated.
The last trump of the trumpet is the finish of earth-cleansing judgments and the fullness of The Kingdom Age operating on earth as it is in heaven.
Kingdom Life Now Within His Chosen
Resurrection life and eternal life do not begin at the natural death of the natural body. Eternal life is for this life now and forevermore.
The resurrection life of Christ Jesus abides within us in this life, if we have received Christ and lost our old life. We no longer live our old life of death but are implanted with eternal life now.
We are no longer waiting for eternal or everlasting life. In Christ and Him in us, we can now live forever. There is now no death for the redeemed . There is passing into heaven and a Spirit body.
This flesh and blood body is to be changed to a glorified spiritual body either through the grave or through an instant living transition.
There is a glorified body for us in this world. If we possess eternal life now in this life, when do we receive the glorified body that can fully inherit the Kingdom Life?
The revelation of resurrection and our glorified bodies are explained through Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:12-50.
In this passage of scripture, the mystery is laid out for all who have ears to hear. Pray for ears to hear and take the time now to read this scripture passage.
The Preaching of The Gospel of The Kingdom
There is no doubt that we have already entered the era of the preaching of The Gospel of The Kingdom of God. “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14. (the word “end” is pronounced tel’-os and means a “goal” a point set out for).
The Gospel of Salvation is the first part and not the full Gospel of The Kingdom. The Gospel of The Kingdom as Jesus proclaimed it, is now for the first time since the first century being widely proclaimed around the world.
Glorified Bodies Now
To summarize, this Kingdom Fulfillment of the finished work of establishing the fullness of The Kingdom of Heaven on earth requires at some point our glorified bodies.
We are a resurrected life that was sown as a natural body and raised as a spiritual body. In the twinkling of an eye those that are alive are transformed into their new spiritual glorious body.
This is the resurrection life of Christ Jesus alive on earth in and with us. (1 Corinthians 15:44-49).
Our natural minds may not be able to truly comprehend and fit together these things. The mystery is explained only in the Spirit, at least for some of us now.
However, this will all seem very good to us at the time of its happening. It will even seem like the natural way for things to be.
I personally know at least one man who has shared with me a time of being taken to heaven and enjoying time with friends and relatives who had passed on.
They were all, including himself, there in their recognizable, speaking, and loving spirit bodies. They were glad to see him and to see that he had found the way there to visit with them.
This was at a major pivotal time of a miraculous breakthrough event in the courts of heaven and in no way a trivial or a self-initiated event. The evidences of this encounter were tangible and practical in his natural life.
One interesting point about this is that they all seemed normal in their spirit bodies. It seemed like the same bodies and people as they were on Earth.
Spiritual Supernatural Bodies as Natural Life
As Heaven comes to earth and the world is purified through the Love and Glory of God drawing the sons of God out of the fallen world, and the removable of all that is not of God through great tribulation, the made new world and the natural Spirit lives in Spirit bodies seems natural and in order.
The spiritual supernatural will have become the natural life of the kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
In our glorified bodies we are as Christ is and as Adam was created to be. We are completely open to living in the Spirit realm with God and in the natural redeemed world of God’s loving and beautiful glorious creation.
The veil no longer exists. The heavenly Spirit world becomes one with the natural physical world. The two again become one.
And so shall we ever be with the Lord our Savior and King Christ Jesus, Father God in The Holy Spirit.
Be made whole in His love,
