Receiving The Kingdom (Part 11)

Mysteries represent spiritual realities (spiritualities) revealed by GOD or satan.

The spiritual realities that derive from GOD are manifestations of the “Light of Life” [see 1 John 1:5 & John 8:12].

Opposing what comes from YHWH is the Mystery of Lawlessness [see 2 Thess 2:7], which gives revealed expressions to satan’s domain of darkness. The domain of darkness operates in what YESHUA calls the “light of darkness” [see Matt 6:23].

Salvation is the spiritual process that delivers us from the domain of darkness into the Kingdom of the BELOVED SON (see Col 1:13, NASB).

GOD is Light and in Him there is no darkness [see 1 John 1:5]. Revelation manifests and communicates the Light of Life into us [see John 8:12]. The Kingdom of GOD is the spiritual framework that YHWH has ordained to give expression to every reality that flows in the Light of His Life.

The Testimony of JESUS [see John 14:6] – communicated in the Spirit and Life of YESHUA [see John 6:63] – is the spiritual fabric by which the Light of Life is communicated into us [see John 8:12]. YESHUA gives clarity to this by declaring that He is the Light of the world. It is written in John 1:4-5, < 4 In Him [in YESHUA, the WORD of GOD] was life, and the life was the Light of men. 5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. >

Deuteronomy 29:29 declares: < 29 The secret things [the Mysteries] belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law. >

The Light of Life from YESHUA transforms us and transfigures us; and, enables our every function in the natural and the spiritual, in accordance with GOD’s Word [see Phil 4:13].

And, the Testimony of YESHUA [see John 6:63; Luke 21:33; Rev 3:14b; 19:10c; Luke 24:44-45] – communicating the Word of GOD in the Spirit and Life of YESHUA – is the conduit of this revelation of the Light of Life [see John 1:5c; 8:12c]. This Light of Life also forms the Armor of GOD [see Rom 13:12c; Eph 6:11].

YESHUA elaborates on the Mysteries in GOD, by declaring that all things hidden in GOD are meant to be revealed to those who will pursue the revelation, by the hearing of the Word [see also Rom 10:17, NKJV]. In Mark 4:22-25 YESHUA declares: < 22 For nothing is hidden, except to be revealed; nor has anything been secret, but that it would come to light. 23 “If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.” 24 And He was saying to them, “Take care what you listen to. By your standard of measure it will be measured to you; and more will be given you besides. 25 For whoever has, to him more shall be given; and whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him.” >

Psalm 97:11 declares: < 11 Light is sown like seed for the righteous and gladness for the upright in heart. >

YHWH sows His Light of Life through the implanted Seed of His Word [see James 1:21, NASB]. The initial manifestation of the Light of Life causes a new birth [see 1 Peter 1:23]. YESHUA instructs us that in this new birth we are enabled and empowered to see the Kingdom of GOD [see John 3:3].

And by the Water that waters the implanted Seed of the Word and by the HOLY SPIRIT who gives Rhema expression to the Logos Word [see John 6:63a], YESHUA tells us that we enter the Kingdom of GOD by Water and the SPIRIT [see John 3:5] so as to operate in it through the Light of the Word of the Kingdom [see Matt 13:19a, 23].

It is through the Light of Life sown through the implanted Word of the Kingdom [see Matt 13:19a] – unfolding 30-fold, 60-fold and 100-fold measures of the Word sown into our heart [see Matt 13:23] – that Kingdom realities open in our inward parts. It is in the fabric of the Light of Life formed in us that the Mysteries of the Kingdom open into us.

In Luke 6:33, YESHUA declares the awesome outcomes of the Light of Life that give expression to the fabric of YHWH’s Righteousness in our being: < 33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. >

All things – resourced from the Kingdom of GOD – will be added (by being revealed into us) through the fabric of the Light of YESHUA’s Life.

It is the Rhema form of the Logos Word [the Word defined in CHRIST JESUS and quickened to life by the HOLY SPIRIT – see Rom 8:2; John 6:63a] that manifests the Light of Life. And the Light of Life expresses the operating medium of the Kingdom of GOD in our inward parts. This operating medium is the Witness of JESUS CHRIST, faithful and true – in Spirit, Water and Blood – opened in us in the new birth.

And in the operating medium of the Witness of JESUS CHRIST, faithful and true, we operate in the Kingdom of GOD. And, we can theoretically do this all the time and in every aspect of our life – personal, family, market place, church, ministry, nation!

Our only obstacle – to Kingdom realities and Kingdom abundance unveiled by the HOLY SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS – is the flesh operating in the spirit of the world; which is the spirit of lawlessness.

Hebrews 6:4-5 reveals four realities that being enlightened in the Light of Life will open to us as we increasingly function in the Kingdom of GOD: (i) Tasting the Heavenly Gift [see John 3:16; 1 Peter 4:10, KJV]; (ii) Becoming Partakers of the HOLY SPIRIT [see John 14:16c; 2 Cor 3:16-18; ] so that we operate in the Kingdom, as the Veil over our heart [of flesh – see 2 Cor 3:3, NKJV] is removed by a circumcision done by the HOLY SPIRIT [see Rom 2:28-29; Heb 10:19-20, KJV/NKJV]; (iii) Tasting the Good Word of GOD as we enter the Kingdom economy in which YHWH performs His Word in us and through us [see Jer 1:11-12]; and, (iv) Tasting the Powers of the Age To Come by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS, as we stand alive in the realities of the FATHER’s will [as the ‘firstfruits’ (see James 1:17-18) of the Mystery of the FATHER’s Will (see Eph 1:9-10, 8-14; James 1:18; Rom 8:19)] is opened in us and amongst us by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS, in an administration suitable for the fullness of the times as pointed to in Ephesians 1:9-10, NASB, and Ephesians 3:8c-12, NASB; as the Mystery of CHRIST is opened in us [see Col 1:26-27; Eph 3:3-4] in the Amen, of the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the Creation of GOD [see Rev 3:14b]. Amen!

YHWH will give us exceedingly abundantly, beyond all that we ask or think, according to the Power that works within us [see Eph 3:20; 2 Cor 4:6-7].

YESHUA ADONAI upholds all things by the Rhema Word of His Power – for fulfillment in the kind intents of the FATHER’s will [see Heb 1:3b; Col 1:19-20]!

The HOLY SPIRIT will take all that is of YESHUA and disclose to us [see John 16:14-15].

Amen: come, Lord Jesus.
