On This Mother’s Day: Coming From The Same Womb


Heb 2:10  For it became him, for whom are all things (accusative case), and by whom are all things (genitive case), in bringing many sons (huios) unto glory, to make the captain  (archegon) of their salvation (noun) perfect through sufferings.

The accusative noun case means just what it says, but in good way. The accused has a finger pointed at him. The whole universe points back to Christ. All heads back into Him. All is created for Him. All is for His glory, and to glorify Him.

The genitive case is the noun case of possession. Christ has been made into all things. They come into being out of Him, as a tree comes out from roots. He is the source of all, and all belongs to Him.

Christ brings all things to pass and completes them as they come out of Him as Source.  He is the Agent and The Agency of all.

Christ is the Author and Finisher, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning, The Beginner,  the Termination and Completer, and the Ending Point.

All things have their belonging from Him who possesses their root sources, their authorship, and  completer.

Heb 2:10  For it became him, for whom are all things (accusative case), and by whom are all things ( genitive case), in bringing many sons  (huios) unto glory, to make the captain  (archegon) of their salvation (noun) perfect through sufferings.

“To bring many sons (and daughters).” Huios is from where the Spanish word “hijos and hijas” comes.  These are the God’s children in regards to inheritance, and not blood or genes.

Because we are God’s sons and daughters we have the right to inherit all which Christ Jesus inherited. That is, all that God is, has, and will do, belongs to the saint through the rights of co inheritance.

Heb 2:10  For it became him, for whom are all things (accusative case), and by whom are all things (genitive case), in bringing many sons ( huios) unto glory, to make the captain  (archegon) of their salvation (noun) perfect through sufferings.

Christ is the captain or the archegon. Arche is the beginning or  starting point. Ago is to lead. Christ is the captain because He experiences all things first.  He blazed God’s trail as the pioneer of the New Covenant.

1Ti 5:17  Let the elders that rule (proistemi) well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

In Timothy, we note a different type of leader or ruler; the one who “proistemi.”

Pro is defined as before. Histemi, is to place, stand, be fixed, or established.

A good ruler sets himself before others as an example. God sets the ruler before people so that by her character and behavior, others can follow . Herein is the mentor, or a father and mother in the faith.

What about our  political leaders. Which of them executes the function of proistemi? Which one sets a good pattern for people to follow?

Scary, right?

Scarier yet, are the throngs who will vote for such without concern to where they are led.

People demand amazingly little from  leaders. It is stunning! These are the spawning grounds of dictators. The world will follow in wonder after the Anti-Christ.

Passivity, complacency and apathy are the spring boards for tyrants

America needs a revival. It is dangerously close of accepting “The Beast”, hook, line and sinker.

1Co 4:16  Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers (mimetes) of me.

1Co 11:1  Be ye followers (mimetes)of me, even as I also am of Christ.

Mimete is a “mimic”. Paul tells us to spiritually mimic him as he mimics Christ. Can we tell others to mimic our spiritual walks?

11  For both he that sanctifieth ( present active) and they who are sanctified  (present passive) are all of one ( are all out of one source): for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,(adelphos: coming from the same womb)

“A,” is  connecting particle. “Delphus” is a womb.

We are sons and daughters because with Christ we are all out of one source.  He calls us adelphos, His brethren, or those who come from the same womb.

One source and one womb, this is what “born again” means.

17  Wherefore in all things it behoved ( ophelio/ what is owe or due, a debt) him to be made (homioo) like unto his brethren (adelphos), that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation (propitiation) for the sins of the people.

Reconciliation here is propitiation.

Because we are reconciled to Christ and our sins atoned for, we are in a constant state of loveliness, favor, graciousness, kindness and compassion to our Heavenly Father.

This is propitiation. Christ is  our propitiation. He has made us favorable, lovely, and so very charming to God . This is our identity.

Because we are all out of the same source with Christ and come from the same womb as Jesus, He is our propitiatory shelter. We are as lovely and charming as Him. We are the beloved of God.  We are His objects of mercy and compassion. We are the funneling ground of all His blessings. We live in a world called Christ which attracts the blessings of the Most High. We are Christ’s brethren and with Him came from the same womb.

Ga 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

Jesus Is The Glancing One


To become proficient in hearing God’s voice, one must understand how God speaks.

God speaks through knowledge. Many believers err in thinking that they must understand before obeying God. Fear grips them and they stay glued to their seats awaiting understanding.  God does not function like that.

God speaks by knowledge, in a still, small, but clear voice. His type of knowledge is intuitive, gut feeling, or you know that you know knowledge.

A toddler arrives at church wearing a blue dress. We know that she has a blue dress. If we hurried out of church and signed for a course to study her dress’s color it would be terribly funny.  We just know that we know that the child has a blue dress.

God speaks like this.  Proficiency in this type of knowledge comes by getting up and doing what it tells us, one million times.

I’d rather err on the waters of God’s voice than to stay in fear of being wrong. Practice makes perfect. Bank tellers become experts at trapping a counterfeit by handling thousands of real bills.

The intuitive, gut feeling, or you know that you know voice of Gods works in connection with the eyes.

We know the toddler’s dress is blue by a simple glance of the eyes. Scrupulously, we did not study her dress, did we? It took one glance to trigger gut feeling knowledge, or the you know that you know knowledge that her dress is blue.

John 5:19  Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth (by a spiritual glance of the eyes of the heart) the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise (in a Homos Fashion).

The word homos is defined as alike or the same, or a carbon copy.

John five and nineteen is the key to ministry.  Using the heart’s eyes, Jesus glances at what the Father does internally in Him, and copies it externally through ministry.

He does not attempt to understand. He glances, gets the gut feeling knowledge and duplicates what He sees.

 1Co 2:12  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know ( intuitive, gut feeling, or you know that you know knowledge) the things that are freely given to us of God.

1Jo 2:20  But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know (intuitive, gut feeling, or you know that you know knowledge) all things.

It’s interesting how the Septuagint defines a seer. The Septuagint is the Greek version of the Old Testament. A seer is a prophet who minsters many a time by visions and dreams.  The Septuagint as you will see, many a time calls him “ the glancing one.”

1Sa 9:9  (Beforetime in Israel, when a man went to enquire of God, thus he spake, Come, and let us go to the seer (the glancing one): for he that is now called a Prophet was beforetime called a Seer (Called one in relationship to glancing.)

1Sa 9:9   εμπροσθεν οι ουκ ταδε ελεγεν εκαστος οι των πορευεσθαι επερωταν του θεον δευρο πορευθωμεν T του βλεποντα R του προφητην εκαλει προς λαος εμπροσθεν προς βλεπων

1Sa 9:11  And as they went up the hill to the city, they found young maidens going out to draw water, and said unto them, Is the seer here? (Is the one in relationship to glancing, here?)

1Sa 9:11     Nsf αναβαινοντων της ανεστη το πολεως P αυτοι ευρισκουσιν τη κορασια εξεληλυθοτα υδρευσασθαι υδωρ P λεγουσιν αυταις ει εστιν ενταυθα προς βλεπων

1Sa 9:18  Then Saul drew near to Samuel in the gate, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, where the seer’s house is. (Or the one glancing)

1Sa 9:18  πως σαουλ T σαμουηλ Nui μεσον το πολεως P Nsn απαγγειλον δη ποιος προς οικος τους βλεποντος

2Sa 15:27  The king said also unto Zadok the priest, Art not thou a seer (the one who functions by gut or intuitive knowledge)? return into the city in peace, and your two sons with you, Ahimaaz thy son, and Jonathan the son of Abiathar.

2Sa 15:27  Nsn προς βασιλευς των σαδωκ των ιερει ιδετε συ επιστρεφεις Nui της πολιν οι ειρηνη P αχιμαας προς υιος τα P ιωναθαν προς υιος αβιαθαρ Prt δυο υιοι υμων μεθ υμων –

1Ch 9:22  All these which were chosen to be porters in the gates were two hundred and twelve. These were reckoned by their genealogy in their villages, whom David and Samuel the seer (Or one in relationship to glancing) did ordain in their set office.

1Ch 9:22    παντες Prt εκλεκτοι ταις πυλαις οι ταις πυλαις διακοσιοι P δεκα δυο ουτοι οι ταις αυλαις Nsf προς καταλοχισμος Nsf τουτους εστησεν δαυιδ P σαμουηλ προς βλεπων την πιστει Nsf-

1Ch 21:9  And the LORD spake unto Gad, David’s ( the one discerning) seer, saying,

1Ch 21:9  (LXXM)  P ελαλησεν Papns T γαδ ορωντα δαυιδ λεγων –

1Ch 29:29  Now the acts of David the king, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Samuel the seer, and in the book of Nathan the prophet, and in the book of Gad the seer, ( the one glancing)

1Ch 29:29    Prt Nsm λοιποι λογοι τους βασιλεως δαυιδ Prt προτεροι P Prt υστεροι γεγραμμενοι εισιν οι λογοις σαμουηλ τους βλεποντος P οτι λογων ναθαν τους προφητου P οτι λογων γαδ τους βλεποντος

Jaws and the American Dollar


This vision was given to me about two years ago.

As in the Jaws film where the unsuspecting swimmers are attacked by a huge shark, I saw swimmers gingerly swimming across the ocean blue. Huge sharks approached them from behind. The life guard who was a Christian prophet got up from his chair and blared out the warning of an impending attack. The swimmers were deaf and continued to swim on. These sharks were weird, though. They had the nose or snout of the a pig. They would approach the swimmers from behind and hit them with their snouts, but did not attack them. Because the sharks had not attacked, but simply butted the swimmers with the their noses, the former continued to feel safe, though many large sharks were in the waters.

As more and more sharks came unto the scene, the Christian life guard not only got up again and screamed, but got a megaphone and repeatedly uttered his voice onto the waters.

Suddenly the attack came. It happened in seconds. It was not an attack of carnage and blood. It was more one like countless household fuses massively short circuiting all at once. I could not see the sharks attack but I saw a mass and instantaneous short circuiting and explosive electronic power traverse across the waters.

I immediately saw the dollar sign and knew that it had to do with the demise of the American dollar and our economy. Every swimmer appeared dead as he or she floated head down, and back exposed in the ocean waters. Fortunately, there had been no carnage and the swimmers were not dead. They were all unconscious. The impact of the sudden electronic attack had rendered them unconscious.

Watchman Nee, the great Chinese apostle said that the only way to save a drowning man is to allow him to go unconscious and then he can be pulled safely out of the water. If a person attempts to save a drowning person when he is still kicking and flaying, both him and the one drowning will be pulled down to their deaths. So it is with a soul who does not know the Lord. While he is still arguing, and debating, and challenging the power and love of God, it is futile in many ways to continue to talk to him. We must wait until the circumstances of life and the folly of his own sins make him unconscious and then we can bring him to Christ.

I suspect from this that the demise of our dollar and economy which will make many unconscious, in hopelessness, distraught, and turmoil will prepare this country for a mighty revival of religion in Jesus Christ.

America and the Islamic Rats


This vision was given about two years ago!

Last night in prayer God gave me a vision of the USA. I could see what were many narrow tunnels burrowed into and below the surface of the land in an area of the country. Perplexed at first by these slender excavations, I then saw rats making their way into the depths of the country through these passageways. I was reminded that in places like New York City rats live in the cavernous and unseen sewers of the city.

The vision then was altered to where I observed a large colony of rats probably about 100 of them now congregating together deep in a large crevice beneath the land. These were the ones who had successfully dug through the slender burrows from the surface of our great nation. They were in constant interaction, what seemed at times like arguments, other like reprimands and corrections and other like whispered planning.

In the midst of all of this contestations, there arose from their midst what was a rat with an Islāmic cap.

The vision further progressed so that this Islāmic rat obtained what appeared to be a fork. He pushed the fork prongs up through the ground and out through the surface of the country. As the fork emerged through the exterior I saw American people. They all looked like clones. They were fat, pot-bellied, totally out of shape, lethargic, balding and “couch potato” looking men. More than the physical nature of these folks, God’s declaration of them was one of total un discernment, unawareness, foolishness and ignorance to what was going on. They were all in a sitting type of posture, though I could not see chairs. The sitting position describes a further lack of alertness and readiness. This is God’s description of the average American in the year 2009!

The rat underneath the ground with the protruding fork stabbed the first man from his behind, lifted him up and moved him stealthily away from where he was, to another place. The man did not recognize what occurred. As he was lifted up by the fork he kept his sitting position intact and where the fork placed him again, he remained unaware and in the same sitting position. The Islamic rat and his underground cohorts repeated this action with a number of the cloned people moving them successfully from one place to another. Finally a space had been cleared out on the land. The rat emerged out into the open with his Islamic cap and what appeared to be a tablet of paper and a pencil and was writing. He was instituting Islamic doctrine and law in the USA.

Folks, the time is here. This vision from the Lord tells us what is already happening. The tunnels have been dug. The rats are beneath and underneath in the created sewers of our arrogance, and the rejection of God’s guidance and laws. In my burdened state I asked the Lord what to do. He told me that our intercession would begin to excavate into the tunnels made by these rats until their diabolical plan could be revealed. I felt that the work would not be easy. This is a great and urgent calling to the Body of Christ from the Lord Himself

The fact that Jesus is revealing His secret means that we are being forewarned about that .

Am 3:7 Certainly, the Almighty LORD doesn’t do anything unless he first reveals his secret to his servants the prophets.

The Scepter of Immediacy


 Heb 1:8  But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness ( euthutes/ noun) is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

I just love the noun righteousness “euthutes”. It is found only in Hebrews.

“Euthutes” comes from the adjective “euthus.”

“Euthus” is derived from the compound “eu” and “tithemi”.

The word “eu” though small, is huge in meaning. To be well off, to make a way successful and to prosper is the gist of “eu”.

“Tithemi” is “to place, set, or put something, somewhere.”

Thus “euthus” is placing something in the right place causing success or prosperity.  Being in the right place at the right time is a suitable description for “euthus.”

Lu 3:4  As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make ready (euthus/ adjective )the way of the Lord. Make his paths straight.

Joh 13:32  If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and he will glorify him immediately (euthus/ adjective )

Mt 3:3  For this is he who was spoken of by Isaiah the prophet, saying, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness, make ready the way of the Lord. Make his paths straight (euthus/ adjective).”

“Euthus” in the above scriptures is making ready, straight and immediately.  This makes sense. If you are in the right place at the right time, and have set things straight, the tendency for stuff to happen immediately increases.

Let’s look at another usage of “Eu” in the verb. “euodoo.”

Ro 1:10  Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey(euodoo)  by the will of God to come unto you.

1Co 16:2  Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him (euodoo) that there be no gatherings when I come.

3Jo 1:2  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper (euodoo)  and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth (euodoo).

“Euodoo” is made up of “eu” and another word, “hodos.”

“Hodos” is a road, a path, or a way.

“Euodoo” is the word “prosperity”.  To be on a path which causes good things to arise, leads to success, brings a breakthrough, and results in prosperity. Prosperity causes the breakthrough, or conversely a breakthrough causes prosperity.

There is no more prosperous path than that of the Lord Jesus’s. True success is doing the Lord’s will.

Prosperity is simply not having lots of money. Lasting prosperity which leads to success begins with our spiritual walk.

3Jo 1:2  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper (euodoo)  and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth (euodoo).

The Spirit’s work delivers our soul life to salvation. Prosperity begins in the soul realm.

To own a dysfunctional soul and strive for financial prosperity is contradictory.

This has been the ailment of some prosperity teachers.

Money or anointing without character has brought catastrophe to many a Christian leader, hurting countless of churched and un churched alike.

Let’s  now look at the adverb “eutheos” as used in the immediacy of Jesus healings.

Mr 1:31  And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately ( eutheos / adverb) the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.

Mr 1:42  And as soon as he had spoken, immediately ( eutheos / adverb) the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.

Mr 5:29  And straightway ( eutheos / adverb) the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

Why did Jesus see immediate miracles? He had the knack for being in right place at the right time with the Father. Treading the straight course of God’s will, and seamlessly in tune with the Father, prosperous paths were Jesus’s, which God opened immediately.

There is something about immediacy when we know that we’re on the right path, in the right place and the right time. A scent of excitement perfumes it and we sense that things are just about to happen.

God works from prosperity. Not the money scam message. God opens doors, not when we twist His arm. Neither when we muster up “red faced” fleshly faith.

God senses a believer’s  path which is causing spiritual maturity. Bang!   He opens the doors. He loves to take us to the next level. Conversely, I know Christians with thirty disobedient years to God with more demonic bondage and physical sickness that when they got saved.

God’s open doors are proportionate to our obedience. Immediacy is proportional to instant joyful obedience. Miracles ensue when we function from moment to moment on the crest of God’s voice.

So the notion of immediacy is seen with real prosperity, or when things are right in God’s eyes. For the one who acts correctly, more immediate things occur.

Heb 1:8  But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness ( euthutes/ noun) is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

God rules from His throne with a rod of euthetes. “Righteousness”, is the placing of all things in the right place and at the right time.

It is God’s nature to be righteous. Everything about Him is right. God has perfect moral integrity. He is flawlessly whole in character, impeccably untainted in justice, and transcendental in wisdom.

I believe that the scepter of righteousness is also the scepter of immediacy. It’s all connected. Right living for God, causes true prosperity. God opens the immediate when the “right place in the right time” conditions prevail, much by our doing.

Christ: The Effulgence of God’s Glory


Heb 1:2  has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds,

The word “His”, does not exist. The verse says, “prophetically spoken to us in Son.”

God has spoken to humanity in the sphere, the location, or in the world of a son.

Two things are meant.

All that God is, has, and will do, is not portioned  to us as different blessings and in different ways.

All is created In the Son, is manifested by Him, and is channeled back to the Son to manifest His glory.

Only in Christ as Son, is all revealed.

Only in believers as sons and daughters is God’s inheritance actualized. Not as servants, or ministers, or bond slaves, but as sons and daughters, do  believers obtain the fullness of all.

The supreme importance for Christians to become sons and daughters by essence and lifestyle is the crux.

The greatest revelation of God is as Heavenly Father. No other religion reveals God as Heavenly Father. This is the magnitude of the Christian faith.

The fullness of God’s blessings are objectified in His revelation as Heavenly Father and in His people revealed as sons and daughters.

God could have placed all things into Christ as King of Kings or  Lord or Lords, or the Alpha and Omega, and though true, His ultimate revelation is found in fatherhood and sonship.

Heb 1:5  For to which of the angels did He say at any time, “You are My Son, this day I have begotten ( or generated you) ( perfect active tense) You?” And again, “I will be to Him a Father (I shall be to Him into Father), and He shall be to Me a Son?”  (He shall be to Me into Son)

 God says of Jesus Christ. “you are my Son, today I have generated you…I shall be to Him into Father, He shall be to Me into Son.”

We know that Christ has no beginning, no moment of creation, so this verse is not  about the creation of Christ.

It was meant for us as mere mortals.

For Christ, the relationship between Him and God is in the reality of Father.

Likewise, God, relates to Christ in the reality of Son.

For the believer, it is the same. We relate with God in the reality of Him as Father. He relates to us in the reality of us as sons and daughters.

Heb 1:3  who being the shining splendor ( aupagasma)  of His glory, and the express image ( character) of His essence ( His nature , essence and foundation), and upholding all things by the word ( rhema word) of His power, through Himself cleansing of our sins, He sat down on the right of the Majesty on high,

Apaugasma: The active radiance, the luminosity, the outshining, and the out raying of light produces by a luminous light body such as a light bulb or the sun.

Christ comes to humanity as Son of God, because He is the out shining, the out raying, and the luminosity of the glory of God the Father. This is what apaugasma means.

Apaugasma can only be emitted from a luminous body such as the sun or a light bulb.

Heb 1:3  who being the shining splendor ( aupagasma)  of His glory, and the express image ( character) of His essence( His nature , essence and foundation), and upholding ( phero) all things by the word ( rhema word) of His power, through Himself cleansing of our sins, He sat down on the right of the Majesty on high,

 2Co 4:4  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light (Light bulb) of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

2Co 4:6  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light (Light bulb) of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Christ is the outshining or out raying of the light bulb branded as God’s glory. He is also the light bulb. The wattage of this  bulb is the fullness of the perfections of God demonstrated in glory.

Christ, the light bulb, is in the believer. The believer becomes the revealer of this light bulb. The believer not so much does, but so much more, shines.

Heb 1:3  who being the shining splendor ( aupagasma)  of His glory, and the express image ( character) of His essence(hupostasis: His nature , essence and foundation), and upholding ( phero) all things by the word ( rhema word) of His power, through Himself cleansing of our sins, He sat down on the right of the Majesty on high,

 “Christ is the express image of God’s essence.”

The words “express image” is charakter or character.  This is an engraver, one who mints coins, a graving tool, a die, a stamp, a branding iron, a mark engraved, an impress, a stamp on coins, and scars.  Thus is the character of a person.

Essence is “hupostasis.”

Hupo is the Greek preposition, “under”.

“Stasis”, is a standing.

Hupostasis is an “understanding” or a thing placed under something else to give it a standing. Hence, the foundation of a home, the title deed of a paid off item, the  nature of a thing, though many times not seen by the physical eye, are all examples of hupostatis.

Obviously, our word understanding means just that. When we understand , we claim to comprehend the reality of a thing, though not fully evident to the  eye.

Heb 11:1  Now faith is the substance (hupostasis) of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Faith and belief are different things. Faith is the foundation, the paid off title deed,  or realities of heaven’s invisible things.

Our believing manifests the invisible things which our faith revealed to our spirits. Faith is not believing, faith is substance.

Heb 3:14  For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence (hupostasis) stedfast unto the end;

2Co 11:17  That which I speak, I speak it not after the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence (hupostasis) of boasting.

Confidence, is functioning by the foundations and realities of invisible things as the default position for normal Christianity. Confidence is also substance.

Confidence is our knowledge that we function by paid off, invisible title deeds, and not by what is seen to the physical eye.

Heb 1:3  who being the shining splendor ( aupagasma)  of His glory, and the express image ( character) of His essence( His nature , essence and foundation), and upholding ( phero) all things by the word ( rhema word) of His power, through Himself cleansing of our sins, He sat down on the right of the Majesty on high,

I have copied and pasted an excellent description of the word upholding  or “phero” from  several Greek expositors.

“But while the word “ phero”  implies the idea of sustaining, it also includes in itself the idea of movement. It speaks of the act of sustaining something that is in constant movement. Weiss speaks of the act of sustaining as dealing “with the all, in all its changes and transformations throughout the aeons.” This act has to do, not only with sustaining the weight of the universe, but also with maintaining its coherence and carrying on its development. Paul speaks of this same act of the Son in Colossians 1:17 where he says, “By Him all things consist.” That is, all things maintain their coherence in Him. The Lord Jesus holds all things together and in their proper relationship to each other by His own power. The oceans are held in their beds. The rivers run down into the sea. The heavenly bodies are held in their orbits. Philo calls the Logos (Λογος) the bond (desmos (δεσμος)) of the universe. This act of maintaining this coherence, implies the guidance and propulsion of all the parts of the universe to a definite end. An illustration of this use of phero (φερο) is found in the LXX,6 where Moses says, “I am not able to bear (phero (φερο)) all this people alone,” where phero (φερο) has in it the idea of the responsibility of the government and guidance of Israel. “

Christ is the out raying and the light bulb of God’s glory. He is the engraver and the engraving, the rubber stamp and the seal, the branding iron and the brand, the stamper and the stamp of God’s nature, and the archetypes and prototypes of every created thing.  In Him all things are completed, because He has been made into all things and is the agent of their completion.

Because of this, He has the right to bear and propel, to govern, to sustain and to support cohesively the universe and its created things

Eph 2:10  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

The Christian is God’s workmanship or product. In the Christian lies all things created. In the Christian dwells the One who has been made into all things and the one who completed them. The Christian is God’s trophy.

Heb 1:3  who being the shining splendor ( aupagasma)  of His glory, and the express image ( character) of His essence( His nature , understanding, essence and foundation), and upholding ( phero) all things by the word ( rhema word) of His power, through Himself cleansing of our sins, He sat down on the right of the Majesty ( great togetherness) on high (in heights),

After His death on the cross, His work for sin, and His resurrection, He sat down.

“He sat down” is a most indispensable term. This is the final resting position of Christ. It describes dignity, honor, a place of final victory, supremacy, esteem, and the highest and most glorious location conferred to anyone.

“He sat down”, was Christ’s return, reinstatement, and re-establishment, back to His eternal glories and perfections as God.

Because the saints are in Him, we have been reinstated and reestablished back to eternal glories of Christ.

What dwell in the believer because Christ is in Him, are the archetypes, prototypes of God’s creations and the perfections of God.  The maker, all things made, and The One who has become all things dwell in the believer.

What dwells in us, are the seals, the final products, the results, the stamp, the die, and the engravings, all things in mint and pristine conditions,  of all that God is, has and wants to do.

We have sat down with Him at His right hand. Hallelujah! It is done!

While on our earthly pilgrimage our duty then is to place our faith on the substance of these invisible things and manifest them through our believing. We contain the light bulb, and its medium to do so.


We Are In Love With The Nursing Home Man


Rom 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man (palaios) is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Palaios “an old man according to age” is defined as a toothless, 150 year old, cane walking, IV sucking, decrepit nursing home man.

He is also the cruelest of beings. He is a slave trader, and a slave master.

His slaves are all the men and women of this world, no matter what religion, color or age.

This old man is a sin producing engine. He keeps humans captured and blinded by releasing continual sin into them. He knows that the only one who can kill him is Christ and His cross.  Thus he deceives people into hating Christ.

One day, it will be too late, and along with this toothless man, many will go to where there is gnashing of teeth.

He has deceived humanity so that it spends trillions of dollars to keep him alive, beautify, exalt, cosmeticized and protect him. His only purpose was to be killed by the cross. Yet people would rather reject Christ and continue to keep this dude alive.

The old man is the sinful nature which every human being has. Only Christ inside the human can destroy him.

Yet mankind will do anything to keep him alive and well, before coming to Christ.

Ah, the price of keeping sin trillions, and yet it will be paid until Christ comes back and promotes good politics.  The way out of the financial mess is repentance.

But for those who want to get rid of this decrepit and evil man, Christ is always available.

But for many others the love of this decrepit and evil dude will take them to the wrong side of the grave and in not so nice a place the human’s eye will finally be opened the old nursing home man.
