Jesus told Nicodemus in John 3:1-7, that “a person could not see the Kingdom of God’ nor “enter the Kingdom of God” unless they were born from above, which was to be “born of spirit.” On another occasion, he told his disciples that some of them will not die until they “see the Son of Man coming in his Kingdom (spiritual) Matthew 16:28; and until “they have seen the Kingdom of God (spiritual) come with power. Mark 9:1.
To transform your internal life and world view in an abrupt manner is the Paradigm experience. An important change that happens when the usual way of thinking about or doing something is replaced by a new and different way. This discovery will bring about a paradigm shift in our understanding, motivation, and purpose, resulting in what I call “experiential believing.” Read Chapter 1; What is the Great Mystery?
From the story in the Garden of Eden we see that God’s heart was to have children, sons and daughters, vicariously through Adam and Eve whom he formed, made and created for the express purpose of having a family. He obviously had an alternative plan, or more accurately, an eternal purpose: A spiritual family via Sonship that would require an incorruptible spiritual seed. So HOW was God, who is Holy Spirit, going to father many holy spirits, without overstepping his immutable laws, ‘everything after its kind, and man’s free will?’ HOW was He going to bring a human being into existence without sin in the blood, in order to atone for Adam and Eves fall and transgression? Someone who would crush Satan and his dominion? Read Chapter Three, page 38 in Christ in a Mystery.
At this point, we should stop and reflect on what we know about believers in the Old Testament and in the Gospels. They are never called new creations; they are never said to be born again (in fact, no Old Testament individual is ever called “born” of God); they are never said to be citizens of heaven; they are never said to have incorruptible seed from God; they are never said to have a holy nature, they are never said to be sealed with holy spirit, nor is holy spirit upon them said to be a guarantee of their everlasting life. In fact, it is specifically because these things are not mentioned in the Old Testament and Gospels that some Bible students have a hard time believing God actually did them for Christians. Many Bible students think that God always deals with people the same way, and that He will deal with us the way He dealt with Moses, Miriam, Ruth, or David. However, that is not the case. God makes the rules, and what He decided to do for the Christian Church was not “business as usual.”
God has done something for Christians that was never done before the Church Age, and it is something He kept as a Mystery. Once we understand that permanent salvation is due to spiritual birth by receiving the seed and nature of God, and is something special that God has done for the Christian Church, we can better understand why Christians have debated for years whether or not salvation is permanent. There are verses that seem to support both positions. This is due to the fact that salvation was not permanent before the Age of Grace, so verses from the Old Testament and Gospels show that. On the other hand, verses from the Church Epistles show that salvation is permanent. People who try to integrate the Bible into a “whole” rather than pay attention to the specific rules God gave to each administration will find verses they cannot reconcile with their position. Why are there verses in the Old Testament and Gospels that clearly indicate a person can lose his salvation, and verses in the Epistles that clearly state a Christian’s salvation is secure? The answer is that God’s rules regarding salvation have changed. Once we understand that Scripture must be examined with the individual administrations or dispensations in mind, the entire subject of salvation fits together. Read page 66 in Christ in a Mystery.
John 17 “And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one.” Read Chapter 8 of Christ in a Mystery.
Word of knowledge is simply His revelation by way of Christ in us; information we need or want to know that is beyond our 5 senses capability of knowing and is verbal or nonverbal. A strong intuition is sometimes felt, that is why we need to always walk by the spirit and be listening and prepared. SIT is said to grease the pipeline so to speak of revelation. Word of wisdom is the highest form of understanding. When you live on this level you sustain an enlightened state of vibration and know what to do with the knowledge. Discerning of spirits can become a bit more cautious before we proceed or not. Not all problems or defects in that person are spiritual nor are they always ready to receive deliverance. If God gives you the go sign then so be it, but if not you can get a shock. They can be quite manipulative and freaky if you’re not in tune. Faith is the spiritual power of the faith of Jesus Christ you have inside you, the ability to exercise in order to bring to pass the miracle or gift of healing that’s to come. The reason it’s a called a gift of healing is because it’s always a gift to the one outside yourself. Usually as a prophet you are told what to do, say, or foretell. As a Mystic, one usually asks or seeks the divine information but visions or mystical experience can come at any time. Divination crosses over to the other side and is not from God as he warns us, but many people can be deceived who are not familiar with The Scriptures. Chapter 6: Communion in the Spirit – The Mystical Manifestations. Christ in a Mystery.
Then again, Paul foresaw it, and warned the Way, the Mystery Movement, of the coming counterfeit church; but when he questioned God on three occasions, if all those stripes1 were worth it, he was taken to the 3rd (new) heaven and coming paradise on Earth in a vision of the Big Picture, and was content beyond words. I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel; Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:6-9. I marvel how the so-called church today does not recognize from early history how the gospel was perverted by the Council of Nicaea 325 A.D. and the Council of Constantinople of 381. Yet it is the foundational statement of faith or what we believe on every website of almost every church in the western world. Who did they think Paul was talking to? The Pagans? Surely not us.
We are followers of the True Gospel of God
And the Apostles Doctrine given via Holy Spirit
That reveals the Grace, The Great Mystery, and the Glory of God.
We are the initiated, perfecting, enlightened ones
And of the household of God.
For our bond is the bond of perfectness, knitted together in love,
And we are to be likeminded through the fullness
Of the light of the mind of Christ.
We are the Mystic Church.
I appoint unto you a Kingdom, just as the Father has appointed me
Jesus spoke these words in Luke 22:9. What do you think that means? I think it means exactly just what it says. Plus, I venture you’ve never read this verse or have been taught from it before. Nor had I, until recently. The spirit had been guiding me through the Scriptures for years exploring and dealing with the concept of our reigning a kingdom in the hierarchy of God’s eternal Kingdoms in His Kingdom of Heaven. When I finally stumbled across this one verse I exploded with enlightenment confirming beyond any shadow of a doubt that this is God’s plan for us. And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ… that we may be also glorified together. Romans 8:17. His Spirit lets us know that together with Christ we will be given what God has promised. We will also share in the glory of Christ. CEV. And if [we are His] children, [then we are His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His spiritual blessing and inheritance], if indeed we share in His suffering so that we may also share in His glory. AMP. Is Christ not appointed, given or inherited a Kingdom from God? Of course he is, so then are we also! – Chapter 9; Our Kingdom Reign. Christ in a Mystery Flip Book.
Likeminded in The Mystery Produces a Bond of Love
Colossians 2:2 “That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ.” The Mystery is the fabric that knits our hearts together in love.
