The Principle of the Last Day


The Principle of the Last Day

The principle of the last day is that Christ works at the moment that we become supremely desperate and give up on our own resources.

Working out hopelessness and strengthlessness is part of the walk of faith.

It causes us to always die to self.

It forms and reveals the Person of Christ in us and causes us to trust solely on Him, and what He can do.

As we become desperate in our powerlessness we cry out to Him and see His salvation, and Christ obtains the glory.

John 6:39  And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

40  And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Joh 6:44  No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Joh 6:54  Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

2Cor 1:9  But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:

Sentence – is the answer of death

Trust in God who is constantly raising the corpses.

10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;

Aorist middle indicative.   This indicates a completed action that will definitely occur and is worked on our behalf by Christ Himself.

Christ has rescued us by faith, by drawing to Himself.

 The Principle of Resurrection

Everything must be taken to and through death and the resurrection, so that what is corrupt, natural and earthly can be put to death and the eternal and incorrupt may be raised up. This is why grace requires much effort in cooperating with the Spirit of God. It’s not a license to do as what we please. It’s a license to obey God, even all the more.

Num 17:8 And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds.

9  And Moses brought out all the rods from before the LORD unto all the children of Israel: and they looked, and took every man his rod.

10  And the LORD said unto Moses, Bring Aaron’s rod again before the testimony, to be kept for a token against the rebels; and thou shalt quite take away their murmurings from me, that they die not. {rebels: Heb. children of rebellion}

Heb 9:4  Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron ’s rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;

 The Corn of Wheat and the Alabaster Jar

The need for our brokenness in the soul realm is vital for the Holy Spirit to emerge,  be released and then fruit can be born for the Lord.

Mrk14:3  And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head. {spikenard: or, pure nard, or, liquid nard

John 12:23  And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.

24  Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

Present active/abiding alone if it chooses to live (loneliness)

Present active/ bearing much fruit if it chooses to die. (Much company)

25  He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

Devote it to destruction and total ruin

To guard and keep watch over what is life

2Cor 4:10  Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

To carry about the corpsing of the Lord Jesus

11 For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

12     So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

Present middle indicative.  Death constantly energizes itself in us, so bringing life to you.

2Cor 12:9  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Linear concept.  God’s power grows in proportion to our weakness.

10  Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

The Shekinah glory of God will tent over and become fixed upon a person in weakness,

Mammon

Mark 4:23  If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

24  And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.

25  For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.

We must continue to acquire God’s inheritance through obedience to continue to get more and more from the Lord.  The disobedient person will start to lose even what he thinks he has.

Mat 6:24  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

No man has the dunamis power which is power in capacity or ability to be a slave to two lords.

To be a slave and do service to.

No one has the power to serve two lords.  It is a black and white situation. One will he love unconditionally the other one he will hate.  He will cleave to one, and hold firmly to one.

The other, he will think down upon and thinks little of.  That is the danger of loving money.

It will suck out the love for the Lord

Mat 13:44  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

All things, as many as he has, he sells and buys that field.

 45  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:

46  Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

Sold/ perfect active. This is a completed and comprehensive action.

Mat 19:23  Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

“Hardly enter”: With difficulty

24  And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

25  When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?

We must be stripped of everything in our hearts to be able to serve the Lord.

26  But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

27  Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

We have left all things behind.

28  And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

Mr 10:21  Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

  Faith

Jesus Must Find Faith on Earth

Lu 18:8  I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Will he find faith rightly belonging to the earth?  Jesus is always looking for present faith.

Our Victory Comes Through the Revelation of Jesus

Rom 9:15  For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

The Righteousness Belonging to Faith

Ro 1:17  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

A righteousness of God is revealed in relationship to the gospel.  Righteousness is the outward manifested inheritance of God to us which was in the invisible spiritual ream in mystery form.

A righteousness is disclosed through the way of faith that arouses more faith.

The one who is just on the principle of faith alone shall live.  The revelation of God’s inheritance of God on the principle of faith shall live, out of God’s inheritance.

The righteous man will always live in relationship to his faith.  There is no other way.

Rom 3:20  Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

21  But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

Ro 3:22  Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

A righteousness and of God through faith of (in ) Jesus Christ is revealed into all the ones believing.  It is a righteousness, meant to all the one believing

Grace is God’s doing. The more faith, the more righteousness.

Faith is the root system from which God’s actions emanate.

God’s revelation of His inheritance through our faith must lead us into greater levels of faith.

The goal is always more faith. This is why the Christian life is one of constant activity.

The righteousness of God is uncovered out of faith.

Ro 3:27  Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

The law or principle belonging to faith. Faith is a law. A law tells us that under specific circumstances, specific results will always take place. Hence the law of gravity.

Ro 3:31  Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

We establish the law through the faith.  We make the law constituting of the righteousness of God, the revelation of His inheritance, to stand firm from minute to minute through faith. The righteousness of faith is a law.

We must make this righteousness stand from moment to moment by this law.

Faith works on itself from moment to moment to bring this righteousness. This is why faith is a law. Works, or our trying to please God apart from the voice of the Holy Spirit, will destroy the law because it is impossible to keep.

Ro 4:5  But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

Righteousness is the manifestation of all which God wants to give to us.  To the one not having a relationship of works but to the ones constantly believing from moment to moment activates the righteous actions of God upon his life. His faith working upon itself brings forth the manifestation of God’s inheritance. Many time believing require continual activity in the Holy Spirit. Believing many times is not a passive complacent life style.

The good news has a component of faith to it.

Faith is regarded as the normal attitude of the heart. It is not a sudden emotion or an isolated act.  It is developed and becomes a life style

 Ro 4:9  Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.

Makarismon- the blessedness or the happiness of the man that walks by faith.

Ro 4:16  Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

17  (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead( corpses), and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

Even God who is constantly quickening or calling; the nature of God is to be constantly giving life to those that have constant faith.  The life comes to the corpses.  He is constantly calling forth the things not being.

18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

Who beyond hope upon the foundation of hope believed.  Whose hope being gone hoped on in faith; according to the thing being said.  The rhema must come first so that we may act on faith.

Ro 4:19  And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb:

In view of the promise of God he did not vacillate in the sphere of unbelief upon two mutual expectations.

He was fully persuaded with finality that what God had promised to do that He would accomplish.

He did not decide against the promise of God by unbelief.

Ro 4:20  He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

Faith is a Spirit

2 Cor 4:13  We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;

We having. Continuously possessing the same spirit of faith.  It is a spirit, which is in possession of faith. We believe and can speak with effect and confidence.  As we believe, we shall also go forth speaking.  This is prophecy and the use of the gifts of the spirit.

This spirit of faith speaks on this wise- We believe something into righteousness or causes God to act and speak it out into salvation or God’s deliverance and final culminating result

2Co 5:7  (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

We conduct our lives not through what appears to our naked eye but by a moment-to-moment relationship with faith. We order or conduct our life through faith and not through what appears. The faith of God is found in His voice.

 Faith Must Start With The Rhema Word of God, or the voice of His Spirit

Romans 10:5 Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.

6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)

Near you is the rhema word. It is in the mouth of you and in the heart of you. The rhema word of faith is what we constantly preach and believe. Again, the rhema word is the voice of the Spirit.  The righteousness belonging to faith comes out of the original rhema and must have mustard seed qualities.

The rhema word of God is always near to us in relationship to our mouth and heart.

8  But what saith it? The rhema is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the rhema of faith, which we preach;

9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Faith is exercised in the heart by the revelation of the rhema word of God.  Wherever there come the rhema word also comes the faith.   God operates by faith, and His words must have His faith, so that all that He says comes to pass.

So therefore God’s Faith is in possession of something called His rhema word

A hearing that owns faith and a rhema that owns hearing.

10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the rhema word of God.

We must develop a type of hearing that comes out of faith and functions solely by the rhema word

Faith then emanates out as a report of our hearing and hearing comes through and by hearing the rhema word of God.

God’s type of hearing must always come out of the rhema word as its source.

 Joh 14:10  Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The rhemas  that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

The works of the Holy Spirit are described by and are bounded and limited to the rhema word. No more and no less. The closer we function to the rhema word, the greater will be the anointing.

Joh 17:8  For I have given unto them the rhemas  which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

The rhema word will always reveal the person of Jesus.

Ga 2:20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith  of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

I now live my life in the sphere of faith belonging to Christ Jesus.  Even the faith of Christ that constantly comes out of Him through His rhema word and is being lived out constantly in me.

But I am living no longer as I. But in me now lives Christ, and that which I now live in the flesh, in faith I live and that of the faith of the Son of God.

This is why we must live out of the rhema word. The rhema embodies Christ’s faith.

Unbelief carries a power of its own.

 Mt 13:58  And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

Heb 3:7  Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,

8  Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness

12  Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

The Rhema Word Must Carry Miraculous Faith

Mat 8:8  The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

Mt 17:20  And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Nothing will be without power.  Faith renders every rhema of God with its inherent dunamis or ability or capacity.

The grain of mustard seed is the rhema word of God.  Faith in every rhema word must be mustard seed or miraculous type of faith; where everything small becomes big.  The impossible must become possible.

Mustard seed faith (THE RHEMA WORD) though it is a minimum amount of faith, must be a grain of miraculous faith.  Faith is an up rooter of mountains.

Faith is the acceptance of the rhema word. Or the acceptance of the rhema word as a grain of mustard seed or miracle working faith.

1Co 13:2  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing

All faith to keep on removing mountain after mountain continually.

 Mark 11:22  And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. {Have…: or, Have the faith of God}

Constant present command from Jesus to live in a state of constantly having faith in God or leaning upon the faith of God.

23  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Present middle tense.  This shows continual action upon itself.  Belief begets belief. Believing that I am getting it now, and at this moment by the inherent action of the believing itself. It is self-acting faith.

Thus what I say now, has immediate present reflexive action upon itself to make things immediately take place.

Shall not doubt in his heart.

Not having two judgments

Joh 15:7  If ye abide in me, and my rhemas abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Believe / receive; A command to believe immediately, that I begin to receive immediately in the here and now.

 The Need for a Pure Conscience.

We don’t hear much today about conducting our lives in a pure conscience.  Many leaders violate or betray their conscience for monetary or political gain and that always to their own hurt.

1Tim 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:

1Tim 1:18  This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;

19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

1Tim 3:9  Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

2Tim 1:3  I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day;
