To Receive Everything
The entire human race is made of dust.1 The breath or the spirit of life is in each person made of that dust. That breath, the spirit of life from God, lives in each person until they die.2 The dust, combined with the spirit, is what God calls "a living soul."3 God gave each one of these souls a will and told each soul what His (God’s) will is. He told each soul He would give them everything that He had if they would do His will.4 He also told them He would reject and discard them and send them to a place of eternal punishment if they would not do His will.5
Not many souls wanted to do what their Creator willed, so God discarded them all with the exception of eight souls.6 The rest of them He drowned.7 Then God, with the remaining eight souls who were saved by water [symbolic of our being saved today and continuing living in the Holy Spirit,8 the living water from Heaven], decided to create another nation of people, a nation that would want to receive everything that God has.9 To do this, they simply had to do what they knew His will was.10
This new nation was not to be like the old world, the souls He had drowned in the flood. This nation was to be a supernatural people, a people He would raise from the dead. The Jews are that nation which God raised from the dead. Isaac was brought forth from the loins of Abraham, a man who was one hundred years old when Isaac was born.11 Isaac was brought forth from Sarah’s dead womb.12 Sarah was far beyond the age when women can conceive a child.13 She was ninety years old when she bore Isaac.14 Isaac was the father of Esau and Jacob.15 God named Jacob Israel,16 and Jacob, or Israel, bore twelve sons who became the twelve heads or fathers of the twelve tribes of Israel.17
God loved the miraculous people of Israel who He had raised from the dead womb of Sarah.18 But only a few of those members of the nation of Israel agreed to do the will of God. God chose Moses from this supernatural nation of Israel to be their shepherd.19 God also chose all the prophets from the supernatural nation of Israel to receive all the words sent by Him through the Holy Spirit to write the Bible.20 The Bible tells us what God’s will is.21 It was the prophets of Israel that prophesied to the world that God would come to the world as a man to teach the world His will.22 When He came to the world as a man,23 He preached first to His supernatural people, the Jews.24 He taught His Jewish disciples that the majority of the Jews had failed to do His will.25 He also told them that He would give them a new power, another power which would be God Himself alive, living in them, which would enable them to be more than able to do His will.26 He told them that He must die for their sins as well as for the sins of the world.27 He would shed His blood so that their sins and the sins of those in the world who would come to Him and then do His will could be forgiven and saved.28
Christ told them that after His death He would be judged by the Father as a sinner in their place and in the world’s place. Then He, instead of them and the world, would be cast into Hell for three days to receive the punishment for their sins.29 He told them that after three days He would rise from Hell, conquering it, and rise from the grave, conquering it.30 In this way He would conquer death, Hell, the grave, Satan, sin, "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life."31 After this He would spend a few days with His disciples, then ascend into Heaven.32
All these mighty, glorious feats performed by Jesus proved He is God. To prove it even further, He told His disciples to tarry in Jerusalem, where He would endow them with the power of the Holy Spirit, which meant He would come to them as a quickening, life-giving Spirit with the Father to live in them.33 "For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call,"34 which means the baptism of the Holy Spirit, Christ entering into them, was not for them only but for us as well. He, the Holy Spirit, would then teach them and us who were afar off, all things.35
God is omnipotent.36 He is everywhere at all times.37 While He was alive in the human body of Jesus, He was also everywhere, including Heaven, reigning over everything on His throne. Today He lives in the body of everyone who has accepted Him and has proved their acceptance of Him and His will by doing everything He commands for them to do, since their will is to do His will. He now lives in all of them as He did when He lived in the human body of Jesus.38 He lives everywhere, including in the kingdom of Heaven and on the throne, reigning over Heaven and earth.39
Again, He is everywhere. Because He ascended from earth back to Heaven from where He came, He now is enabled to descend into us by the Holy Spirit. 40 As a Spirit, the Holy Spirit, He is able to live in many human bodies. Therefore, He works in the world through these many millions of human bodies who accept Him and His will fulfilling His statement that "the works that I do shall he [all the members of the body of Christ combined] do also; and greater works than these shall he [the many saved bodies with Christ living in them] do." 41 The body of Jesus today is comprised of many supernatural bodies, bodies who have come to Him for the forgiveness of sins, for salvation, and to do His will. 42 Those supernatural bodies form the church or the building of God, the body of Christ, His bride. 43 This is God’s holy nation which was only symbolized in the Old Testament. 44 It is God’s holy nation alive in today’s world doing His will. This nation is increasing in number as more souls are saved. This is the spiritual Israel of God, the spiritual Israel of the New Testament, the fulfillment of that which God always wanted, a nation whose will is to do only the will of God.
This supernatural, spiritual nation is made up of both Jew and Gentile. They all become one in Christ Jesus. They are all now spiritual Jews, members of spiritual Israel who were once dead in their sins and trespasses but are now by the Holy Spirit raised from that death by God’s power which is Christ, the quickening, life giving, Spirit.45 "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all [in the body, the Holy, spiritual, nation of Christ] one in Christ Jesus."46
This holy nation did not come into existence by fornication or by the will of man. But by the will of God they were raised from spiritual death unto life eternal.47 We were all rejects and discards.48 When the Spirit of life said, "Come," the people that were dead in their sins who wanted life came to the Life, Christ, and became one with Him in God’s holy nation.49
Jesus said, "I am...the life."50 "Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest [Sabbath]...unto your souls."51 "He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live."52 If this is your desire, if it is your will to become part of God’s holy nation by agreeing to do God’s will so He may give you everything that He has, and most importantly the forgiveness of sins and eternal life in Heaven, then say this prayer:
My Lord and my God, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. 2 I believe that He died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. 3 I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit 4 and that He sits on the right hand of God at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart and I invite You into my heart, Lord Jesus. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that You shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 You will not turn me away, Lord Jesus, You will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because Your Word, the Bible says so. 8 Your Word says that You will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that You have heard me, and I know that You have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as You command and sin no more. 11
Now that you are saved and forgiven of your sins, raise your hands and praise the Lord. "Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The Lord reigneth."53
Christ now lives in you through the Holy Spirit.54 There is a way you can receive a fuller portion of the divine nature of God in you. God the Father lives now in you also. The more of the divine nature of God that lives in you, the more you will be able to stand against the temptations that so easily have moved so many millions of Christians away from salvation. This is caused by more man in us than God in us. Mankind has become so wicked that if Satan and his impish army were abolished, we would be our own devil.
Now that you are saved, pray for the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Prayerfully study the Word and pray always for more of the divine nature.55 For instructions on how to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, and to receive more of God’s holy nature, ask for our literature or call. For without holiness no man shall see God.56
Now that you are saved it is a commandment to be fully submerged, baptized in water in the name of the Father and in the name of the Son and in the name of the Holy Spirit.57 Follow all of God’s commands and live.58
You've just completed the first step in a series of five steps which are necessary to receive salvation. Your second step is to deny yourself and take up the cross daily for the purpose of mortifying yourself, that is, for putting to death your own will, your soulful self, and the world with all of its lusts. All these must be baptized into the death of Christ.
Step three is your resurrection from the satanic life of Adam unto the sinless life of Christ. Step four is your ascension into a position of authority to reign for God on earth, and the fifth step is to reign for God on earth to the end for the purpose of bringing about the kingdom of Heaven on earth. You must learn the Word of God, then submit yourself and do what the Word says, so that the Church and the world may see evidence of your submission to God's Word, His order, and His authority in and by you.
Praise the Lord. May God reward you abundantly.
