It Is Finished

9/28/2008

We know that the High Priest is one who is a MEDIATORor attempts to be a MEDIATOR between God and man. Every High Priest that is taken from among men is ordained for men in the things pertaining to God that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sin, and have compassion on the Ignorant, For that He Himself also is compassed with infirmity."
Rom8:3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, The Holy Bible, New King James Version, (Nashville, Tennessee: Thomas Nelson, Inc.) 1982.
Now we are seeing a completely different kind of priest. "Seeing then that we have a Great High Priest that is passed into the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession."
Profession actually means confession.
Confession is to 'recognize' the accomplishment of this Great High Priest Jesus, because in the days of His flesh He suffered and offered up supplications, I.e. 
"My God if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me," almost crying in tears unto Him that was able to save Him from death. "He was heard in that He feared."
He was not afraid, but He did experience the same sense of alienation we all experience in our humanity, can you hear this, you who still have fear of what is going to happen after you die? In His humanity, Jesus also experienced that awful fear or anxiety about what is going to happen to Me when I die, can you hear this beloved, you are not alone. Jesus was tempted the same way as every one of us is tempted, and we all really want to live don't we?
Jesus destroyed the accuser the devil, the Satan that had the power of death, is no more and once you have been born again of the life-giving blood of the Lamb, we no longer fear anything that is no longer an issue in our experience.       
Hebrews 2:14-15 (MsgB)   Since the children are made of flesh and blood, it's logical that the Savior took on flesh and blood in order to rescue them by his death. By embracing death, taking it into himself, he destroyed the Devil's hold on death [15] and freed all who cower through life, scared to death of death.
Jesus knew He was the Son of God, because He had heard the voice saying, "This day have I begotten Thee, Thou art my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased," yet immediately He was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of His own sense of self-life--the desire to live.
He was also tempted like you to show his own powers, showing the ego I,  with the desire to protect Himself from death and hunger. The temptation to preserve his Adam life was there to turn stones into bread, yet He opened not His mouth. 
This is the Lamb of God, the principle of non-resistance, he opened not his mouth and surrendered to the death of his Adam life, the serpent was lifted up and Jesus died as the Last Adam.  Sin (a sense of separateness from God's Presence)   generated when the first Adam said; I am afraid, I am naked!  
The Lamb of God did not resist evil; Jesus as the Last Adam, yielded to the Death of the Body and died as the last Adam.
Romans 5:9-21 (KJV) 
    Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. [10] For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. [11] And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
    [12] Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: [13] (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. [14] Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. [15] But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. [16] And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. [17] For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) [18] Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. [19] For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. [20] Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: [21] That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

  • Now the Body of Sin is destroyed, Adam the generic man is never to be remembered.  
  • Now what is the meaning of all of this, what is it that God in Jesus did for us?
  • Have you ever thought about what the meaning of the Cross-that was?

It is actually very simple, but on the other hand, it is very complex.  It is because we do not really know the workings of our own mind which is alienated from the life of God through the ignorance and the blindness there is in humanity we have not known the meaning of Jesus coming so that--the Adam man or man of flesh could be done away with forever.

  • Adam is the emotional man. When he looks at a corpse, he gets very emotional. He sees the final and thinks this is real, dead and final. Adam only sees the consequences of his own acts also and he is afraid that punishment for his actions in life will come to him after death. He feels guilty and he needs absolution from his sin does not he, but does not know how.  Adam feels that he needs to be forgiven for the sins of the past—he seeks absolution for the things that he has committed, so he seeks forgiveness, and cleansing through forms of sacrificial worship, but cannot find it, religion as we see it in orthodoxy is not the Way!
  • The way to be cleansed from guilt, sin and fear of death, those things give us a feeling of eternal judgement, but remember, absolution from sin and guilt comes only through the Blood of Jesus.
  • The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin, and when we come to Him as our High Priest after the Order of Melchizedek,  who brought freedom from all forms of disease, lack and fear of going without is now done away with, it is wonderful; Jesus will never cast you out when you call upon His name.

One thing we must understand and that is a major issue, the cleansing of sin does not come through metaphysics or speaking words or doing religious acts and rites.
The forgiveness of sin does not come by just thinking that we are God in our humanity or that we are so special, there is no access to the Place or Rest outside of Jesus. No beloved, forgiveness or the cleansing of sin comes when we recognize the work of the Great High Priest, Jesus the Son of God, who passed into the heavens, He is wonderful, can you say amen?
We are talking about the heavens that are above the earth realm.   I am not talking about the lower heaven, which is the reasoning mind, which is the UN--conscious man,  who lives by fear.  This man is constantly working to protect or improve himself.
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together in Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. The earth realm represents the heavens of the unconscious. 
It is in the fear realm of Adam, where we experience the anxiety and guilt, which I call mechanical or un-consciousness guilt, can you see this?  Fear and guilt is an automatic working of the carnal mind, nothing can take it way, only the blood or nature of the Lamb of God can cleanse it away, it is wonderful.
Nothing else can, only our great High Priest can absolve guilt, good works cannot take it away.

  • You can give your life to be burned and work all your life in the mission field, it will not help you get rid of your guilt. You can be another Mother Teresa, but nothing can take away guilt. No works, nothing, only Jesus can cleans your sin away.

Realising the Presence of Jesus in your meditation takes away guilt. It is the recognition of what is written in the--the Holy Writ.  The Holy Writ itself has to be spiritually discerned and appreciated in its proper context. Remember, the natural religious mind cannot understand it, but there is a key, which unlocks the mystery and His Name is Jesus.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.  
That is to first recognize that Jesus absolved the guilt, the fear, the anxiety, through the terrible anguish of soul that He experienced.

  • He cried out, "My God, you will not leave My soul in Hell.
  • I feel forsaken, but I am here as the VICARIOUS PRIEST."
  • The VICARIOUS PRIEST absolved the sin of the world in His own body on the tree.

He who knew no sin was made to be sin for you and me that we might be absolved from all past guilt and feelings of eternal damnation. Many orthodox preachers still proclaim sin, hell and damnation if you do not believe. What do you believe, what do you feel right now?
Not we only in the reality, but all that represents our humanity were absorbed in His Body as the Last Adam. It was done away with, it is finished, believe this, it is true and real, you have been given a new Life and a New Name, and you can eat of the hidden manna.

  • You know there was Adam the dust Man.
  • Adam in his total being was absolved in Jesus; Jesus in His humanity was the Last Adam and died AS IT.
  • Remember,  the Human Adam was not a God-created being..
  • Humanity is an imaginary realm, an emotional feeling of love and hate and fear and anxiety whatever it may be, whatever it represents, that is our Humanity represents, but that is not God-created, this realm we know as the carnal mind is but a sense of separation from the Life of God.

Adam in his sense of sin and separation is from God's Love and Grace is not the image of God. Jesus was also born of a woman as the last Human, born under the law, the same way that we were born with the same sense of life, with the same feeling of "I must survive."
He was born flesh and blood, born of a woman, born under the Law, to redeem them who were all their life time subject to bondage.
Gal Chapter 4  Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Do not forget, that is what we must first recognize. "God so loved the world that He gave."

  • What is God?
  • What is the Son of God?
  • Are there three?
  • No there is only ONE!
  • You and I are complete in that ONE
  •  Christ Jesus IS that ONE,  DO YOU HEAR ME?

Therefore He says: "When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men. Now this, He ascended what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth? He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things." 
 He became sinful flesh first in order to raise us into the New Man which is Christ the Image of God, can you hear this? 
Having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
So I AM, which is God, descended into the lowest parts of the world first, is this not something? God descended into the lowest sense of Life in the form of the Flesh man Adam, the Dust Man and died for the last time,  gave you a new Spirit by which you can now cry ABBA FATHER, without guilt or fear of judgment, do you hear?  
That is what Ephesians says. I'll read it to you so we can have a good understanding, because it is very deep. Once we get this understanding we also become a priest after the order of Melchizedeck,  who is able to stand in the victory of the Christ that absolved death and brought life and immortality to light.

  • He absolved Sin and abolished death.
  • That is what it says in II Timothy 1:10, He abolished death.  
  • How can you abolish death?
  • By recognizing that death is not real, otherwise it can not be abolished. 
  • Can you abolish two times two is four? No! You can try, and throw it in the bin but it is still two times two is four.
  • You can burn it, but it is still four, you cannot burn the I AM, the principle Life form. You are God's begotten, this can never change or be abolished, it is wonderful, you are redeemed from the curse of guilt and fear, receive it now.

God says "let us create" and that is still and always will be so, you are the Christ the Son of the Living Father.
So what Jesus abolished was the illusion of self-life.  Jesus abolished the illusion of separate self, the Adam Man. He suffered the anguish of a sense of separation which in reality is impossible. No one can ever be separated from God. If you were to be separated from God, you would fall apart in a heap just like that. God upholds your whole being.
Do you know that every cell of your body is upheld by a loving God--even your eyesight, the working of your eyeballs, everything, the taste, the feelings that you have, everything is God-given, but we have misinterpreted life.
We have seen it wrongly. We have been alienated from the life of God through the ignorance and the blindness that was in our hearts. "Wherefore He saith, When He ascended up on high,"-- What is it that we read a minute ago?
"Seeing that we have a great High Priest that is passed into the heavens." 
He ascended--right?

  • Before He ascended, what happened?
  • "When He ascended up on high He led captivity captive and gave GIFTS unto men." 
  • In other words, THE SAME ABILITY, He gave us the Spirit of Truth, so that we will know our heritage. Do you understand this?

The same ability to actually be in that ascended place and have the same administration that Jesus is in now. Listen! Verse  "Wherefore He saith, when He ascended on high, what is it but He that also descended first."

  • So now what descended and was born of a woman?
  • Jesus descended into the lowest parts of the earth--actually He was born in hell, do you hear?
  • Somebody said, "Well, Jesus was born in heaven." 
  • No, no, first He was born in the lowest parts of the earth so to experience the same anguish of soul that we have. He then rose from the dead and was born again as the New Man the Image and Only Begotten of the Father in Whom you and I are complete if you hear His Voice and open the door of your hearts now and let this New man take over the reign of your life.
  • That is what you call 'vicarious suffering.' It is not just plucking out his beard or crucifying him on a cross, that is not really the suffering.

The suffering is that God Himself descended, because there is not God and something else. It was God, Himself, appearing as the Son. 
God the Father descended in the form of a man and became one of us, can you see this beloved? Do you ever hear that song on the radio "If God was one of us, what would he do?"
Well He did, He became one of us. He did not take upon Himself the nature of angels. He took upon Himself the nature of sinful flesh. Can you just imagine that?
Well think of it now--that is the love of God.

  • God placed Himself in hell, subjected Himself to the devil, and by subjecting Himself to death, and surrendering to death, He destroyed the devil, death, hell and the grave.

Now that is the strangest part I have ever heard. You yield yourself to your enemy, let yourself be killed and then you kill the devil, wonderful is it not?

  • What is the devil? The Devil is our Humanity, the flesh--the feeling of fear, anxiety, nakedness, and the desire for things, that is the devil.
  • Actually He became flesh. "What is born of flesh is flesh."

Chris Jesus has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us for it is written,
"Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree" Jesus became flesh and died as the last Adam sense of life.
Because He was flesh and blood, He was cursed with a curse, Jesus bore the curse of the Law and took our guilt and fear upon Himself and freed you and I from the dust realm, do you hear?
"Cursed is every man that is born of a woman, born under the Law." However, we must also clearly see the difference between the Adam man (Jesus was first born as the Last Adam) which is but flesh! The Christ Image which is the true Light and Substance of the Father was His true Life and Heritage.
That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. John 1:9.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Now what does it say? "Now He that ascended what is it but He that also descended first in the lowest parts of the earth. Now He that descended is the same also that ascended."

  • That is very important to realize God and man are One regardless of mans behaviour.
  • However, because through one mans disobedience (Adams) we all descended and became mortal creatures. 
  • In other words, it was Adam who lowered us, not God as so many Bible teachers believe. In Adam we all descended into the lowest parts of the earth and became flesh.
  • We are not flesh, we are Spirit, we are God's offspring, because we have always been in the Father and with the Father. We have always been there, but in Adam we lost our awareness, and we died to our true heritage.
  • We no longer knew who we were, we have forgotten. "By one mans disobedience." Always remember, it was not God that lowered us into this vanity.

This is the wonderful part about it, because we often hear that God lowered us to try to teach us something or that He has a plan for us. That is a lousy sort of a plan, don't you think?
Do you still believe that God lowered you into the vanity of flesh to teach you something?
No beloved, in his insensitivity of heart man lowered us into the pit.
It was God that lowered Himself into Hell to redeem you and I and give us back the spirit of adoption so that now we again can cry Abba Father, that is the mystery, that is grace.
Grace is that man lowered us into Hell, but God lowered Himself into the same pit we were in and became one of us and got us out.

  • That is what you call vicarious suffering.
  • He absorbed the brunt of all of Adam’s mistaken identity and He absolved it and destroyed it in His body on the tree.
  • Through death He destroyed the devil.

Heb 2:14 "Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He destroyed him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. 16For indeed He does not give aid to angels, but He does give aid to the seed of Abraham. 17Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. 18For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted."
He destroyed the flesh, destroyed the desire to live physically. Once you know who your are in Christ Jesus you don't have the desire to live anymore as a separate being with a lifespan of three score and ten. because you are now life itself, One in the Father.

  • We don't need anything, because all things are already ours in Christ Jesus. We have to transcend out of this realm of desire--out of the realm of I want, because we know the Lord is our shepherd, and we shall not want.
  • So now we must recognize this!
  • IN Christ Jesus, IN not By but IN.

In Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were afar off in the pit, in the lower realm which is called hell or Hades--a place for the human dead where Jesus cried out "You will not leave my soul in Hades or in Hell,"--a place for the dead. "
You have shown Me the pathway of Life, you will not leave me, your Only Begotten, in Hell,"

  • YOU ARE THE ONLY BEGOTTEN, can you hear this, you are One in The Body of Christ.
  • You know that there is only ONE Only Begotten.
  • Don't ever think that there is more than ONE.
  • There is only ONE and YOU ARE THAT ONE but you have forgotten.
  • Now you are beginning to remember. Are you feeling this? We are rising now. We realise for ourselves "You Father will not leave My soul in hell, You, Father are showing me this day in the year 2000 the pathway of Life, thank You, Father.
  • Actually this light which is so bright and so wonderful is drawing us. "When I be lifted up I will draw all men unto Me"
  • It is God.

The presence of God is drawing all men to Him-Self, the only Self there is in truth. As we approach, not by force, but by an irresistible drawing of love.
He draws us and at the same time we are drawn, the darkness of material living is being consumed. All the fear, all the anxiety, all of the anxiousness, all of the darkness and the fear of this human experience gradually becomes less and less and less as the light becomes brighter and we start to relax.
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 3And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. 1John 3:1-3

  • Our youth begins to spring up like the eagles, Our body gets healed up.
  • What is being done?
  • We are being absolved however what is being absolved, God does not know anything about. God does not know anything about absorbing our sin, He is totally absorbing our darkness, absorbing our fear, but we know that perfect love absorbs all fear, can you hear this?
  • The work is finished.
  • God descended into the lowest parts of the earth in Himself, in the body of Jesus, as the son of the living God, but first of all, as the son of man as the Last Adam.

13“No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. 14“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15“that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. The Holy Bible, New King James Version, (Nashville, Tennessee: Thomas Nelson, Inc.) 1982.
As Jesus He took the brunt of the law upon Himself--everything what Adam represented was working in Him, on Him, in His body on the tree He destroyed the False Image the Man of Sin. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
The Holy Bible, New King James Version, (Nashville, Tennessee: Thomas Nelson, Inc.) 1982..
In Adam He bore our sickness, He bore our diseases, He bore death, He bore everything on His body on the tree, He died--His the body died--was in the grave, but there was a light in there. There was a Spirit in there---the consciousness of Jesus--the Spirit of Life developed over the time that He was on earth and rose from the dead.

  • While in His humanity He grew in wisdom and stature and realization until He could say,

"Destroy this body and in three days, I will raise it up." Think about it, If He had not KNOWN that He would not have SAID it, can you hear this, this was Faith!
2Corint 4:13-14 "And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, I believed and therefore I spoke, we also believe and therefore speak, knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you."

  • The things that I am saying to you now, if I did not know that what I am saying is the truth, I would not say it.
  • I not only know it, I feel it, I experience it. It is so!
  • The LIGHT of it becomes the vicarious consciousness that draws to ITSELF the sick, the lonely, the desperate, the halt, anything at all that is in this world that we call darkness or alienation or whatever it is.
  • This LIGHT will absolve disease or anything at all that God did not ordain.
  • This light is vicarious but it is not done consciously any more, it is the spirit of Faith, it is spontaneous Life, it is the Lamb of God which takes away the Sin of the World, it is wonderful!

Now as the Body of Christ it is not done in the way Jesus did it, we do not have to die in the same manner, for. Jesus alone broke down the middle wall of partition when He gave Himself for us, can you hear this beloved?
"FOR HE IS OUR PEACE WHO HAS MADE BOTH ONE AND HAS BROKEN DOWN THE MIDDLE WALL OF PARTITION (OR DIVISION) HAVING ABOLISHED IN HIS FLESH." Eph 2:14,15.

  • Do you see that? He abolished it, He absolved it in His flesh--the enmity, the war, the anxiety--everything that existed, the guilt, the fear, that was, the vicarious work of Christ.

"EVEN THE LAW OF COMMANDMENTS CONTAINED IN ORDINANCES WAS ABOLISHED TO MAKE IN HIMSELF, OF TWO ONE NEW MAN, SO MAKING PEACE."

  • There is not a whole bunch of them, there is only ONE MAN. I cannot say that Jesus is somewhere else because I AM, You ARE, we are ONE, WE ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST--not a physical body, but a spiritual mystical body with the realization that IT IS FINISHED.
  • Jesus abolished death.
  • He abolished and absolved disease; He absolved everything that the world knows of suffering and anguish but now there has to be a development of this realization.

The Awakening.
If a mother, for example, shuts her child in a dark closet to discipline it, thinking that she is doing right, how can she know that the shock of this claustrophobic hole of darkness can cause an arrested brain development lasting a lifetime? Under the action of natural law, this child can never rise to proper intelligence and will always be backwards. Jesus offered Himself to take away the guilt of the past. Whatever you experience, whatever you have in your closet as memory or as a fear can be taken away.
I had terrible nightmares from my experience in the war. On the tenth of May, 1940, I was in Rotterdam in the Children's Hospital when they bombed the city. The bomb hit the hospital and you can imagine the bodies of the children and the people and the blood running in the streets. The whole city of Rotterdam was in flames. For years the memory of that was very fearful. I had nightmare after nightmare and practically every night I would run around the house thinking there were demons after me. I did not think they were demons, I thought they were men.

  • They were only a reaction that came to me unconsciously and psychologically.

Many years later Jesus came to me to take away that fear and guilt. The same is true with this woman and the child. Jesus takes the bearing of these consequences into His own self thereby lifting from both the mother and the child the weight of the law.

  • He abolished the ordinances of the law in His flesh--in His body on the tree. That is what we call vicarious or transferred suffering.
  • That is a mystery isn't it? It is a mystery when we look unto Jesus who abolished death, who abolished disease and everything we know as suffering, He first of all took on His body on the tree. He was the forerunner and nobody can do the same work.
  • There is only ONE that did that. That is universally done and nobody else could do it, nor can do it again.
  • This is the finished work of Calvary or the finished work of Jesus Christ.

All the years of alcoholism in which Martha and I made hell for each other and were hurting each other and our children every day for many years are absorbed when we went through the door. Jesus said "I AM THE DOOR" and we closed the door of oppression behind us because there is no past.
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My Holy Mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord,as the waters cover the sea.
Now in Christ Jesus we are standing also in the position of vicarious administration. We are now standing in Christ with the realization of this, that death is abolished, disease is abolished--everything what Adam represented is abolished and finished in Christ Jesus.
The work is finished and the work was finished from the foundation of the world, think of it.
Now we are standing in this world as the Body of Christ, the fullness of Him that filleth all in all, absorbing all the anxiety of what we call man.

  • When man comes into your presence all you have to do is recognize them the way they truly are. Do not say, "You are sick," don't say "You are dying." Don't say anything because then you are taking the name of the Lord in vain. We must see them the way they are---reconciled.

JESUS RECONCILED THE WORLD UNTO HIMSELF NOT IMPUTING THEIR TRESPASSES, ABSOLVED THEIR GUILT, THEIR SHAME AND THEIR FEAR AND HAS GIVEN US THE MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION TO LET ALL MEN KNOW THAT GOD WAS IN CHRIST RECONCILING THE WORLD TO HIMSELF..
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not.
We have no right to tell anyone he is a sinner. If we say that we are spitting in Jesus eyes. Jesus finished the work. No man can absolve sin. Only Christ can.

  • Only Christ can!
  • What is Christ? Those who recognize what Jesus accomplished, that is Christ.

Do you understand that?

  • We can say, "Jesus is Christ." Then what are you? "Well I am just a sinner."
  • Then you are under law.

We must recognize that Jesus absolved all sin from the beginning to the end, never again remembering anyone’s sin, cancelling out the guilt and the laws of ordinances that were against us and made of Himself, you and me ONE NEW MAN, SO MAKING PEACE.
SO now WE ARE as JESUS, we are the Body of Christ.
Saul of Tarsus, who was a good Jew was trying to put Christians in jail because he thought they were heretics. He was on the road to Damascus when suddenly a bright light shone, and he fell to his knees. Then he heard these words. "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting ME?"  saul  was struck blind by God’s light, Saul said, "Lord what are you or who are you Saul called out?" The answer came, "I am Jesus whom you are persecuting." "O no Lord, I am not persecuting you, I am persecuting the fanatics that follow you." "They are ME, Jesus replied."
See, the body of Christ, is Christ, Christ is not a bunch of Baptists,  Pentecostals or Catholics, they are Christ’s Body. The Body of Christ are the ecclesia. The ecclesia are the ones that have been called out of the darkness of material sense and live now in the place of knowing in whom they have believed and are fully persuaded.
They stand now in the place of total vicarious absorption, they are the Light of the World!

  • "You are the light of the world; a city that is set upon a hill cannot be hid."

I said last night that this is for the mature and you are all mature, because you are absorbing what is spoken and your humanity is being absorbed at the same time. Anything that is of darkness or of fear is now being absorbed and you will fly out of this room like little butterflies because you are a free being.

  • You are free from sin, liberated from the fear of death, and if you can hear this message, you are free indeed.
  • Then you become the 'free-ers' or liberators. Once you have become the light, the city of God, the city of peace, then you become the free-er of men. The light that is in you,  is as you, that frees the nations who will come to you. They do not know you, although there might be few demons crying out, because they recognize who you are.
  • "We know who you are!" "That is all right, shut up and come out of him."

"That HE might reconcile both unto God in ONE BODY by the cross," You know the cross was not that wooden cross. The cross was the Garden of Gethsemane, when He said, "Not My will but your will be done." That is where Jesus was crucified.
hat is when all death and hell was crucified, that is where the devil was destroyed---in the garden of Gethsemane. First look at the cross where the Old man was crucified, then look at the resurrection where we rose together with Jesus. Then look at the ascension where we were glorified together in Christ Jesus. Moreover, whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, and these He glorified.

  • Now, after you have realized the finished work don't again look at the suffering of Jesus, you don't have to look at the old order any longer….. it is finished!

That was first His personal battle, it was His personal achievement in order to prepare a Place in Heaven for you and I, and this is Love and Grace appearing to us while we were still in sin. Now we look at the victory, we look at the resurrection and the ascension. Now we look at ourselves the way we are known of God, not the way we knew ourselves as sinners.  . We must forget what we were in Adam, the Veil is rent and the New Man is being revealed.
Romans 6:3-11 (KJV)      Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? [4] Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. [5] For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: [6] Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. [7] For he that is dead is freed from sin. [8] Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: [9] Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. [10] For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. [11] Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The body of sin is destroyed.
Ephes. 2:16 (KJV)  And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: 
Col. 1:20 (KJV)   And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
There is no more any thing that veils our true Self through the feeling of guilt and fear to blind us to our Identity as to whom we are in Christ Jesus. The Jews had a veil in front of that holy place--the Holy of Holies, representing a sin consciousness.  Now the veil of the temple is rent, now you can all enter in without guilt, come into our Fathers Presence,  without shame, without fear, your heavenly Father is for you with a ring and a fatted calf, it is wonderful.
He throws you a party and says, "Come on, lets live it up for awhile."

Love, Tony
