In this season, God is within and among His people. The reality of the Kingdom of God is coming forth in the hearts and lives of those with ears to hear. Therefore, there is now an opportunity before us to step into life of the Spirit beyond where we have walked in the past.
The power of the Spirit to rule over all natural life is coming to light enabling God’s people to become the true sons of God that we were designed to be from the beginning. The Spirit power to restore the world to the Garden of Eden, the Kingdom of Heaven life on earth, is now before us by the Spirit of God.
Natural things that are seen with natural eyes were not made by things that are seen but by that which is unseen. The heavenly realm of God from which all creation flows into existence is the Spirit realm that cannot be seen with the natural eye.
“By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible,”Hebrews 11:3.
All tangible matter on earth consists of energy from Spirit God and is an arrangement of what we call atoms made up of energy in the form of protons, electrons, and neutrons that are alive with energy and movement. That which appears to be totally dormant, without visible signs of life, is actually alive with moving energy and design from God.
“For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist,” Colossians 1:16-17.
The creation flow from Spirit God is living Spirit substance of love, energy, and design that becomes materialized as creation of both that which is seen with natural eyes and that which is only seen with spiritual eyes.
Natural living beings have breath in them. They partake of the elements of earth and have movement and some level of understanding and/or programmed patterns of life and reproduction within themselves. Spirit beings do not have natural breath in them and normally are unseen by natural eyes. Both natural beings and spirit beings emanate from Spirit God as created beings.
Therefore since every created living being is made from Spirit, there is a spiritual unseen pattern or image from which it is made. That image is presented in every cell of the being in what we call its DNA.
The God-Man Connection
Only one species of created being, mankind, has the God-designed ability as a spirit being to live in a natural body and therefore function in both the natural realm and the Spirit realm. Thereby, only mankind has the designed ability to fully relate to the Spirit realm of God and heaven and at the same time to fully relate to the natural world as children of the God of all creation. As a designed child of God with the Spirit breath of God within, mankind has special creative authority and ability to affect all creation on earth.
All of God’s original creation fit together and functioned perfectly until mankind in Adam chose to use his God given authority as a child of God with a free will to break from God’s covenant of perfect order of unity and function of creation on earth. The act of breaking from the design of God is called sin and should have never been done by a human being endowed with the image and likeness of God.
Mankind in Adam was given dominion authority of choice and a free will with which to love and obey God. However, the bad choice of Man to sin broke the contract of son-ship with God and has had a devastating effect on all of the created world.
A New Creation
Once the design was broken it took a brand new creation of man that was not of the first Adam to restore the place of man on earth. Only through a new linage apart from Adam could man again become the full child of God and reestablish the broken design of God for planet earth.
A New Man was born of a virgin by the implanted seed of God by the Holy Spirit of God. Jesus, Yeshua, Savior, Messiah was born a pure holy seed of God, a new Man, the last Adam. In Christ Jesus the first born Son of God, the broken design is fully repaired.
All human beings born in the linage of Adam are broken under sin and do not possess the status of a true unbroken child of God. They must be BORN AGAIN and become a NEW CREATION in Christ Jesus to become a true son of God. In Christ Jesus, mankind can be fully restored to the original state of the image and likeness of God with the breath of God within just as Adam was before sin broke the design of God.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new,”2 Corinthians 5:17.
The born again new creation person no longer is tied to the DNA of the first Adam but has a new Spirit DNA of Christ Jesus. Literally the life of the new Man Christ Jesus flows into our natural being by Spirit God and transforms us into a new person, a new creation in which God lives and reigns in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit of God.
“Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God,’”John 3:3.
There are two basic kinds of human beings in this world. Those that are of the first Adam and those that are of the Last Adam, Christ Jesus. Jesus has the unbroken DNA of Father God. If we abide in Christ Jesus and He lives in us by the Holy Spirit, we are no longer broken and are now true sons of Father God, joint heirs with Christ Jesus, born not of flesh and blood but born of the Spirit of God Almighty.
The Kingdom of God abides within the Sons of God in whom Christ Jesus fully dwells by the Holy Spirit. When the people of earth have become the unbroken new creation people of God in Christ. Then the whole earth and all that is on it or in it will be fully redeemed and the old broken earth will be a NEW CREATION just as people in Christ Jesus are a NEW CREATION. The curse of sin and all that it has done to kill, steal, and destroy the Kingdom of God on earth will be dissolved, and the whole earth will be returned to the unbroken perfect design of God as it was in the Garden of Eden before the fall of mankind in the first Adam.
The Kingdom Within
The garden Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven is now alive and well within the forerunner Kingdom people of God. Though much of the old world may be perishing in the cleansing judgments of God, the pure holy reality of the Kingdom of God from heaven keeps our hearts and minds in perfect righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Even in the midst of the storms of cleansing judgments removing the “tares,” the glory of the manifest presence of God continues to grow by faith to overcome the darkness within and around the pure-hearted holy kingdom sons and daughters of God, and the Kingdom of God continues to grow unseen by the people who love darkness. As the brightness of even two or three gathered kingdom people shines forth into the gross darkness, there are those who have a spark of life within that will see the light and arise from their darkness to come to the light.
“Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” Matthew 13:40-43.
As multitudes of individuals come to the light of the kingdom, they are cleansed of darkness and transferred into His kingdom of His marvelous light. The light within each one coming together grows until the whole earth is filled with the glorious light of the pure holy nature of the Living God on earth as it is in heaven.
“Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising,”Isaiah 60:1-3.
This is not something to just be looked forward to some day in the future. This is the present reality of the Kingdom of God on earth coming forth as our faith literally becomes His faith in us. What we could not believe in the past becomes totally real and accessible now in our lives by the faith of Christ Jesus within us by the Holy Spirit. It is all by the grace empowerment of God fully operative in our willing hearts.
We can now live in the fullness of the Kingdom of God within by the Holy Spirit. As kings and priests in this world ruling and reigning with Christ Jesus within us by the Holy Spirit, we become part of restoring our portion of the world to the garden Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. Christ by the Holy Spirit will guide and empower us to bring forth the will of God in our world on Planet Earth.
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom,” Luke 12:32.
