God is All; besides the Holy One of Israel there is no other. Christ Jesus the reality of our being is the Tree of Life. Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. John 17:4-3
However, the tree of good and evil is an appearance that we appropriate outside the Holy One of Israel, whose foundation is satan the devil, the old serpent that deceived Eve in the garden of Eden. The whole human race has been worshiping satan subtly or knowingly since we left Eden.
- The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
Now the purpose of the gospel is to stop us from appropriating the fruit of the tree of good and evil; to draw us out of the world of darkness into His marvelous Light (Tree of Life), into ‘My kingdom’.
“My kingdom is not of this world, of the tree of good and evil, of appearance. I go to prepare a place so that where I am there you may be also. In my Father’s house are many mansions, if it were not so I would have told you.” John 14:2-3. This promise is already fulfilled in the eternal now as Christ grieves at the cross of Calvary, “IT IS FINISHED.” ‘My kingdom’, the ‘many mansions’ of the living God is already prepared, awaiting our self (human life) surrender consciously; awaiting our acceptance that ‘IT IS FINISHED’. When Christ says it, IT IS and you can live by it; it is our reality. The road to ‘My Kingdom’ is a narrow one, only you and God on it, because you live, move, and have your being in our Most Loving Father. So do not expect the world to be at home with this message: ‘thou shall not eat of the fruit of the tree of good and evil’ (Genesis 2:17), which is the same injunction given by Christ, but put differently as: “Judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment , John 7:24.
The world bears witness to the tree of good and evil; the world bears witness to appearance and not to the invisible Holy Spirit of God everywhere present. In our humanhood, we were all in the loins of Adam as he was asleep to Christ, as he separated himself from God. Therefore, at the foundation of our world, when we took on human form, unknown to us we were equally separated from God as a result of partaking of the fruit of the tree of good and evil.
Conversely, in the eternal now (on that day or the Lord’s Day) when Christ grieves upon the cross of Calvary, “IT IS FINISHED”, we are also in His loin as He is reconciling the world unto Himself. However, we have to realize consciously that we are in His loins so as to severe ourselves from the tree of good and evil inherited from our Adamic nature, and be re-grafted back unto the TREE OF LIFE – between the two living Cherubim, upon the mercy-sit of our Most Loving Father, where Jesus Christ reigns in Glory forever.
Therefore, our freedom from the influences of the fruit of good and evil, of any appearance lies in our acceptance of, ‘IT IS FINISHED’ (John 19:28-30). ‘To them that believe gave yee Power to become children of the living God (John 1:2). Unless you accept or believe ‘IT IS FINISHED’, you do not have the power to become the Son of God; unless you see yourself in the loins of Christ Jesus, you sever yourself from the TREE OF LIFE.
Everywhere in the human scene, we are continuously tempted to eat of the fruit of the tree of good and evil, to accept an appearance beside the Holy One of Israel. However, if we must abide in the secret place of our Father, then we must eat the flesh and drink the blood of Christ Jesus, the same bread and wine that Melchizedek, our true self offered to brother Abram; we must accept Jesus Christ as the substance of all forms. You must always acknowledge God in all your ways regardless of appearance. This was the Truth that the prophets in the Old Testament lived by, and it is the secret of the life of Jesus Christ – “My Father is the only presence; I and My Father are one”. Holy Spirit is revealing this Truth to us in the eternal now. You must know only the Truth about God, about Christ Jesus constituting ‘individual being’. As far as you are not functioning from the human level of existence; as far as you are not sowing to the form but the infinite, invisible Christ presence, you are pleasing God, and no longer eating the fruit of the tree of good and evil.
However, the world mesmerism, the tree of good and evil has buried Christ in our midst. The fabric of this world of the appearance of good and evil is hypnotism. The human mind has been preconceived to believe in the appearance of good and evil, right from the womb. Your thought creates the illusion of the external material world. This world is the activity of the five-sense mind made visible. Our five senses are playing witness to our thought. The overcoming unto death is developing that capacity by grace and faith in Christ, to overcome your own five senses, by believing that Christ Jesus is the reality of individual being; that you are Spirit coexisting with Christ in God, without beginning, and without end. The five-sense mind cannot handle the Truth of being that Christ is in me and I am in Him. Consequently, it is gradually dissolved out of our consciousness, as we rest in the Truth of being that Christ constitutes ‘individual being’. This is the Truth that overcomes the world; the inner meaning of: “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death”, Revelation 12:11.
The veil of mortality blinds us to reality, to the living presence of our Most Loving Father at the center of our being and the infinite universe. However, as we acknowledge Christ Jesus as the Activity of God in creation, the veil rents. The Truth that we know; the Truth that acknowledges Christ as the reality of our being is what sets us free from human and material bondage to good and evil appearances. The Truth to know is the Truth about God and Christ Jesus in relation to His creation. Our Most Loving Father is Truth but Truth without our consciousness of it will do us no good. We must acknowledge our Most Loving Father in all our ways to realize our God-given dominion. The whole essence of the scripture is ‘that we might know God aright and Christ Jesus whom thou have sent’ (John17:3) to be free from the hypnotism of this world of good and evil, to enter into immortality here and now. The Truth that we know is what sets us free. Truth on its own cannot set us free, cannot function our being, until we are aware of it as the function of individual being. For this reason, we are tossed up and down by tempest, fire, and other seemingly inharmonious condition and appearance in the human scene, when we are ignorant of the Omnipresence of Christ where we stand.
Evil came about because Adam and Eve ate the fruit of good and evil; they entertained a false sense of separation from God, by accepting a power and a presence apart from God. As a result, they conceived after the flesh and their offspring were not immaculately conceived. Nonetheless, as we come to know our Father aright and Christ Jesus as our true identity, we come into the Lord’s Day – wherein we are accepting that “IT IS FINISHED”, which grants us the capacity to conceive immaculately.
Consequently, Christ tells us that we must be born again, else we perish in our acceptance that we are human beings. In our initial birth, we were born humanly. Nevertheless, at the end of the world, on the Lord’s day, at the end of your human life, when you have fully accepted ‘IT IS FINISHED’ as Christ grieves at Calvary, you are born spiritually. You are no longer the natural man, that man that appears to be born in the womb of a woman; by grace, you are now spirit, in your acceptance that the Life of Christ is your life and His Immortal body your body; in your acceptance that, “IT IS FINISHED”, as Christ declares eternally at Calvary. You must acknowledge and accept that same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead as the Life of your being. Please meditate on this. You only receive the things of God not as a human being but as Spirit, by accepting, “IT IS FINISHED”, as Christ proclaims eternally.
Nothing that defiles or makes a lie can happen in God since our Most Loving Father is the only Activity. Any activity, unlike our Most Loving Father, happens in nowhere. The beast (the appearance that human mind has come to accept as reality) that thou sawest was, and is not; shall ascend out of the bottomless pit (humanhood), and go into perdition (nowhere). The human mind bears witness to the beast, which was not created by the WORD. This is the inner meaning of mystery Babylon in revelation chapter 17. Only those with ears and eyes shall hear and see what the Holy Spirit is revealing to us in the eternal now. In our false identity of flesh and blood, we always behold the beast that was, and is not (not created by the Word that is in the beginning with our Most Loving Father), and yet is – (meaning that human mind has accepted the beast, an appearance, as truth; has accepted a presence besides our Most Loving Father). Right there and then we are eating the fruit of good and evil.
Consequently, we are cast outside the Garden of Eden into this world. We must come to this realization before this world of opposites can be overcome: ‘Only our Most Loving Father is present; only our Most Loving Father is Power; only our Most Loving Father is All-knowing’. Therefore, never will I be tempted to ask Him to do something to an evil power because there is none. All evil power exists only in human consciousness but in Spirit, it is not. In the presence of the Holy One of Israel, there is perfection, peace and joy eternally.
The very inquisitive mind might ask, “If our Most Loving Father is One; and besides Him, there is no other, then where are my, and where is my neighbor?” You are where God is; you live, move, and have your being in our Most Loving Father. Our ignorance of this truth makes the appearance of a lie; it makes us a human being, the creature that has no rise in God. Our Most Loving Father is All. This is the principle of life in heaven and that will be established on earth, through individual acknowledgment of Omnipresence, Omnipotence, and Omniscience. Our Most Loving Father does not change; there is no less of Him now than when our Most Loving Father led the children of Israelites in the wilderness for forty years, through the consciousness of Moses. In addition, our Most Loving Father is no less now than then when He performed all the miracles in Galilee through the consciousness of Jesus Christ. There will be no less God now than tomorrow when all mortal form is gone. Our Father is eternally Omnipresent, and deals with us in proportion to our consciousness of His Presence where we stand and where our neighbor stands; our Father is no respecter of persons, but respects or acknowledges our consciousness of His Omnipresence where we stand.
In the degree you are conscious of this Truth are you a master, a disciple of Christ Jesus, raiment according to grace; you are the light of the world. The Activity of God supports no melody other than the song that aligns in the Truth that besides our Most Merciful Father there is no other. Hence, all songs in our worship place must be re-composed to conform to the Truth that our Most Loving Father is All. Therefore, there is no tree of good and evil; there is no appearance of satan, ekwensu, lucifer, or any of his demons. You must not believe the existence of satan, ekwensu, lucifer, or demons any more than you can believe in the existence of your human self if you seek to make the entrance into the promised land as Joshua and Caleb. To enter into your inheritance, the transfigured body of Christ Jesus requires total fidelity to the first commandment: “The Lord thy God is One; love the Lord thy God with all thy soul, heart, and mind” (Mathew 23:37). Certainly, you cannot love God by accepting a second presence in the form of satan, ekwensu, lucifer, demon, she, he, it, or me where only the Holy One of Israel is. As you dwell on this Truth continuously, your humanhood begins to dissolve into our Father, the Holy One of Israel.
Therefore, the Truth to know is that the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is in time, and time is not a creation of God; it merely appears to be but it is not in reality. Whatever that the Word that was in the beginning with God did not create was not created. The Word, Christ is the reality of individual being. Whenever we appropriate whatever the WORD did not create as a reality; whenever we eat the fruit of the tree of good and evil; whenever we accept consciously or unconsciously an appearance or presence besides God, besides the TREE OF LIFE, we are instantly pushed into time, into a state of non-existence.
You remember in Genesis the injunction, “Do not eat of the fruit of knowledge of good and evil!” In our humanhood, we unceasingly defile that injunction. We eat the fruit of good and evil with all impunity, by accepting God’s presence and an appearance. In our human hood, we do not live by the most important commandment in the bible, “Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord; and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength. Consequently, we are cut off from divine Grace, outside the Garden of Eden’.
Please remember that this world is not overcome by God but by man realizing the illusory nature of this world as appropriated through the five senses, in the sole realization that God is All; that besides the Holy One of Israel there is no other. The world of appearance is the tree of good and evil. Thus the devil presents itself as this world for your acceptance; for your acceptance of a presence apart from God. It suggests to you that there could be God and a condition or an appearance, which is the tree of good and evil. But you, who are following Christ in the regeneration, the pure in heart, please judge not after appearance nor know any man after the flesh; please behold no iniquity in time or space, but Christ Jesus – the Tree of Life, behind the veil of our mortality, our flesh and blood consciousness. Therefore, rejoice for Christ has already overcome the world; Christ alone opens the book. Your function and mine function is to accept that he has overcome this world; that humanhood is finished when Christ utters on the cross, “IT IS FINISHED”, John 19:28-30. As you are lifted in consciousness by the Holy Spirit, you shall behold the cross of Calvary (the crucifixion) as the Tree of life. Thus it is in the degree of your acceptance that Christ Jesus, the reality of our being has overcome the world, you are an over-comer.
Holy Spirit promises us a Life in the eternal now where time is no more, where time meets with space at the cross of Calvary. The Father’s promise is now fulfilled at the cross of Calvary. At the cross, our humanhood dissolves, in our continuous acceptance of the finished work of the Father, even as Christ grieves, “IT IS FINISHED.” That ‘It’ that is finished is our carnal nature, our Adamic inheritance. Therefore, you do not need to attain any of the qualities of God. They are all here and now; they are all yours in the eternal now, in your acceptance that 'IT IS FINISHED'.
Our carnal nature, that man of sin, (‘the flesh and blood consciousness’ man), that has occupied the temple of the living God since the foundation of the world, who is under the influence of any of these: war, killing, terrorism, idolatry, jealousy, hate, fraud, envy, malice, ambition, perversion, bestiality, rape, LGBT, pedophilia, child-trafficking, adultery, fornication, masturbation, lust, pornography; lying, cheating, divorce, heredity, witchcraft and sorcery, gambling, fortune telling, divination, enchantment, idolatry, kidnapping; tornado, famine, accident, viral outbreak , starvation, wild inferno, hurricane, earthquake; poverty and wealth, lack and limitation, disease and health, male and female, young and old, imitation life and death, good and evil ) must be revealed in you, and denied completely, in total surrender to: “IT IS FINISHED”, as Christ grieves eternally at Calvary .
May the Peace of our Most Loving Father be with you through Christ our Lord. Amen!
Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. John 17:4-3
