Christ--Mass 2001

"I, Jesus am the root, and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning star."

Revelations 21:16.

The First Coming!

First Jesus descended into the lower realms we know as Human birth. At His first coming He became the Lamb of God to take away the Sin Principle of the World.

Because we all have sinned and come short of God’s Glory we all must be Glorified again to be in God’s Presence. We know that we can’t be justified by good works because by Grace we have been saved. So then, He came the first time as the Lamb of God, Jesus died as the last Adam (human) to justify all men. Jesus in His Death destroyed the Body of Sin and freed mankind.

The next step is glorification.

"That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one, just as We are one.

I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me."

We all can now look for Him without sin and enter into Life the Way our Father has intended it for us.

  • Jesus born in the manger of human thinking is known as the first coming, so what does this mean?

"Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?" Rom. 8:

Behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying:

"Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel," which is translated, "God with us."

Jesus after His human birth was God with us in His descended state; 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.

When we look at the Physical Birth of Jesus we know that this was the first coming of Jesus born of Mary the Virgin, this was His descended state. We also know that the first coming (In His Descended state) did not save the World from their sin, regardless of His Virgin birth, did it now? So what was the purpose of the first coming?

"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, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the descended flesh concept of birth set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit." Rom. 8:3,4,50

Yes, it was the first Light to lead us back to the Father, but have a look around you, there is war and murder on every side. If we still know Jesus as God in His descended state, we are still in Hell and are under the curse of the Law. If we don’t come up higher in our understanding of who and what Jesus means to us now in His ascended glorified state of being and know He is risen, we will still die in our sin.

In our humanity we are in constant danger of terrorism, disease and many other fears, there is no real freedom, in our humanity we are still slaves to sin. As born of flesh humans we know that we need a Savior, but how does He come to us, what do we believe about the Christmas story, what do we look at, what do we expect to happen?

If we want to be Saved, we must not look at the man Jesus after His human birth, for we shall not find life there. We must no longer look for a physical return which most of Christians look for, that is not how Jesus will come, He will come from within us the hope of Glory.

"Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ Jesus according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." 2 Corinth. 5:16,17

We, who are born again of His Spirit must now look for His appearing in us a second time without Sin, Jesus is coming as the Ascended Lord, not again to be born of a woman born under the Law, can you hear this?

Jesus, the ascended Christ

is now coming to us as a Life Giving Spirit.

This is the only hope for the nations of the World, He must come to us without us having a sin consciousness, for if we still have guilt and fear He cannot appear in us.

Christ-Mass will take on a whole different meaning when we get to see the coming of the Ascended Christ Jesus as Lord and Christ, it is wonderful if you can receive Him now.

  • In His coming we know intuitively that we are free indeed, for now we know the Truth.
  • Whom the Son sets Free is Free Indeed, it is wonderful!
  • So let us examine this Second Coming or Coming, for it is in the New Creation Realm that all shall get to know Him.

"Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, (born of a woman, born under Law) does not differ at all from a slave, though he is Lord of all, but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father. Even so we, when we were children ( in a mistaken Identity), were in bondage under the elements( life and death) 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." Gal 4:1-7

Led by the Spirit of Truth.

"Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him, He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation." Hebr.9:26,27.

When Christ comes for the Second time in His ascended state you will see Christ Jesus as your Salvation. No longer are you aware of the Sin problem! Sin, disease, fear and lack disappears from your experience, it is wonderful, no more guilt or fear of Judgment.

Now, when Jesus is born again in your manger as the Christ Child, your eye is single, you will only see the Latter House Glory in all men, Emanuel God with us, God in us and God as us, let us shout for joy!

Now at His Appearing for a second time,

within you and I, our eye is single.

In this second coming without Sin, you see Jesus the Only begotten of the Father, full of Grace and Truth. You know that you are complete in ‘Christ Jesus’ In this understanding your whole body is full of light and life, for we are now joined by One Spirit unto the Fathers Life Spring, it is wonderful.

At His appearing for the Second time, we learn not to judge by the outer appearances, we judge righteous judgment. At His Coming we now only see that what God created as His Offspring, there is only One Only Begotten of God and you and I are complete in Him.

"Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it." Col 2

When you are free of guilt and fear, washed in the blood of the Lamb, you are sowing to the Spirit, and you reap Life, superabundant, it is wonderful. Remember, as long as we look at Jesus in the first coming (born of a woman, born under the Law) we are not yet in the re-surrection and we are still earthy and die. We now need to look for Him the way He is now, no longer knowing Jesus after the flesh, that is if you want to be free from the curse of the Law.

What you see is what you get, what are you looking at?

When you see Jesus the ascended Life of God to be yours now as your rightful heritage you will also see this Christ in others also. In this new look you are looking at yourself, for there is only One Only begotten of God.

Jesus in His ascended state, is our spiritual heritage.

He has come and has taken up His abode in us, if you hear only His Voice and do not listen to strange religious concepts. We must see Him the Way He is now, not as most people know Him in the Christmas story, in which He appeared as the Last Adam and came to die. Now we must be led by His resurrection Spirit into the New Heaven and the New Earth, ( His Body made without Hands).

When we know Him as our Life we are entering into Life more abundant. Instead of listening what our senses tell us we now listen to the Still small Voice of Jesus and by obeying Him we experience freedom from all the law of sin. 

So learn to be still and meditate.

Hear the True Voice of your Savior. See your Shepherd to be the Risen Christ Jesus, who will lead you into green pastures. God will speak and the earth of human sense will melt away, and Christ Jesus will give Light .

Returning to the Fathers House!

The House of God has laid dormant for so long and we all have built our own religious human way of thinking. Now the Christ Child has to be born in our manger if we want to escape the corruption of adult thinking. All adult thinking is adultery, it is not God’s mind. In our ignorance of truth we have listened to other voices and we have gained little.

The heavens are shut and stayed from dew, (which is a revelation into reality), we need to open the door, Jesus is knocking, so let this Christ Child come in and sup with you.

There is a drought in our human life and we experience all sorts of calamities, so now we must again hear the Voice of Jesus in our land and be saved. There is an expectation in people's hearts, it is the new and living thing that is dawning in our awareness, Christ is Born, this is our first true Christ-Mass!

It is the coming knowledge of God's Glory of the Latter House that will wipe away all our tears, it is wonderful.

Emanuel, God's Presence, will be realized by many souls today, it is wonderful, His Name is Lord Jesus Christ, no longer the lowly child born in a manger. Many Christians are going to realize how dead they are in there own human consciousness. Religion as we know it today is void of Spiritual Substance, it cannot see or enter the Kingdom of God or reign of Spirit, Christ must be born, to take the reign of our life, can you hear this?

For that reason we must reckon ourselves to be crucified with Jesus as Paul experienced it . Gal 2:20

Now our Former House is dead, because it was a mistaken I-dentity in the first place, it had no understanding of who and what God IS. Remember, God has no knowledge of our so called humanity. Only Jesus in His humanity knew our sense of Sin and died with it. Now in the resurrection of Christ Jesus we only let God reveal Him-Self as the Latter House Glory. It is all God, there is no longer the alienated Tony, now it is the Life of Christ which reigns, Amen!

This Glory will only be demonstrated to the degree of our understanding, in other words, we must surrender to the inner Christ the true Image of God. Don't give up if you first fail, it does not matter, but keep on looking to Jesus who was the forerunner of this Latter House Glory, it is in Jesus that we express the will of God.

We cannot do the will of God in our former house (The carnal mind) this is impossible, it cannot be done.

  • Let the mind of Jesus be in you in its fullness, as your wisdom, as your supply, as your love, as your light and as your strength.
  • However, we must remember, it is God that is doing the building, not us, we are the Temple or vessel of Glory.
  • Glory is not done through Psychology, Philosophy or Religion, it is by My Spirit says the Lord who reigns.

Just be still and let God do all the work.

God is calling us now, out of the grave of human thought and fear of hell into the glorious liberty of the sons of God.

All those who adhere to the leading of the Spirit, will shine as lights and be saviors in Zion

."The Glory of the latter house will consume the house of Esau, which is the house of flesh, symbolically, the whole Human Spectrum of religious thinking. Obadiah:17,18,21

Every time we meditate on the bread of life which comes from within us, our house is raised up more. More light brings salvation, healing and deliverance with It in its wings. I personally am seeing the fruit increasing as God is doing a short work upon the earth by his Spirit, it is wonderful.

  • Except God has left us a seed (Christ) we would all be like Sodom and Gomorrah.
  • In this Latter house I (God) will take pleasure and I will be Glorified in the midst of you.

"Come ye to the waters and drink." Is 55: 1

Out of the Human consciousness we will continue to bring forth the curse, that is, if we remain in it. We must be born again of the Latter House Glory to be saviors in Zion. Remember, the curse of the Law represents worry, care, uncertainty, a sense of rejection, failure (cares means mental suffering, grief, it implies oppression of the mind, weighed down by responsibility or disquieted by apprehension, the synonyms are concern solicitude anxiety worry all meaning a troubled and engrossing emotion or affair).

Fear defines the human consciousness.

It is no wonder that the world is in such a mess, it needs the Christ Child to be born in their manger. God's Word when heard from within us brings light and life, it brings with it the blessing. Instead of the briar, the fir tree comes up. Instead of disease, health, instead of poverty, prosperity will come up. And most of all, lasting peace, assurance and quietness. God's Word is the Light that lights up every man, woman and child that comes into the World.

  • God's Word when clearly heard in our meditation will bring the truth and substance of the things what we have need of in this life.

The Word of God energizes Faith within you, it is the evidence of His Presence realized. When you learn to live in this state of meditative alertness to God's Presence, God's Word will be performed and a seed (Christ Child) comes into the womb of your mind and produces that what you have hoped for.

You see beloved, when the desire to know the mystery of God and man and it's divine working comes, It is a tree of Life.

In this awakening of the Soul you have passed from self gratification and sense of survival of the fittest (which is the first law of human nature) to the realization; "I will now lay down all my previous convictions, thoughts and ways, and I will return to the original house of God where I belong".

In Haggai chapter 2, the Lord admonishes us to be strong all ye people, for "I AM" with you.

  • Now this "I" the life of Jesus is your true selfhood, "I" Jesus, will lead you out of your human darkness into the marvelous light of the Christ revelation, it is wonderful.

However, the Human consciousness (Adultery) will be shaken as it is being removed from you. It is not pleasant when the flesh is removed, but it brings forth the peaceable fruit of Righteousness!

All the nations will be shaken

by the appearing of Christ in your earth.

And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation.

All the imagination’s of the human mind will be removed until only light remains. Only God's kingdom will stand. The silver is mine and the Gold is mine, saith the Lord.0

However, the state of consciousness Jesus demonstrated to us does not seek Gold or riches. The type of mind which seeks riches or success is a sense of lack and is part of the former house.

You cannot add to the "I AM", it already knows and has all things, it is the consciousness of I HAVE.

The Human mind is void of power and cannot produce anything; IT IS A SENSE OF I HAVE NOT. The Mind of Christ Jesus is the only mind in the Universe that can reveal Spiritual Supply. The Mind of Christ is the Power of God unto Salvation to all we have need of in our lives.

Jesus is the realm of God.

Jesus the Realm of God (Heaven) is the only activity that constantly provides and supplies all that is needed to all creation, but we need to intuitively know it and follow His Voice. There is no other Name given by which we can be saved. When we come in conscious union with Jesus our source of supply, we do not desire any other activity, we already know and have all the Father has, it is wonderful!

The activity of the Latter House consciousness is activated when we have submitted to the Government of God, and are led by the Same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead. In the Mind of Jesus, we actually become the supply to the nations, it is wonderful!

The Spirit of the Lord is now upon us and we are able to heal to provide and feed those who thirst and hunger after Righteousness, which by the way also means literal food, clothing and moneys.

But we always have twelve baskets left over.

In closing, I like you to turn to 1 Kings 17: where Elijah came to the widow woman who was in famine with her son, and asked her, what have you in your house?

  • How far have you risen in consciousness to be a supplier

         instead of a wanter,  A giver instead of a taker?

  • If you give, it shall be given unto to you, pressed down, shaken to-together and running over, shall man give into your bosom.

When Elijah came to the widow woman and her son in famine, he said; "what have you in your house?" She said a little meal and a cruise of oil to make a loaf of bread for my son and I and then we will die.

When Elijah said bake the cakes for me, she surrendered her human sense of life and survival, in the hope that Elijah could do better. Indeed, the oil kept on pouring! And the meal lasted until the famine passed. This widow woman touched the Latter House glory, where there is infinite supply, which will never run out for all eternity.

Those of you who are hearing the message of Righteousness without the Law, can also be instrumental in bringing this message to your friends, your neighbors, your city or state. Tapes, writings, books etc. are available.

I love to hear from you personally.

Tony and Martha
