As we know, Jesus came in the flesh (became a partaker of flesh and blood) so that through death He might destroy (that is, render idle) him that has the power of death….that is, the devil .
Hebrews 2:14-15 KJV (14) Forasmuch then as the children are partakers
of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same;
that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death,
that is, the devil; (15) And deliver them who through fear of death
were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
He did this so that we might have life in this earth.
For God so loved the world…this world that we are living in now…that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believe in (into) Him should not perish (from this earth) but have everlasting life (in this earth). The life that Jesus is experiencing now in Heaven is everlasting for death has no more dominion over Him.
It is His eternal life that we are to experience in this earth as He gives His flesh now for the life of the world.
John 3:15-17 KJV (15) That whosoever believeth in him should not
perish, but have eternal life. (16) For God so loved the world, that
he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should
not perish, but have everlasting life.
It is through Him that the world might be saved.
(17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world;
but that the world through him might be saved.
That everlasting life is His that is to be made manifest in our outer mortal flesh giving us His eternal life in the here-and-now….in this world.
The life within us is Christ and that hidden life is to be made manifest outwardly in our mortal body if we always bear about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus as it says here in 2nd Corinthians.
2 Corinthians 4:10-11 KJV (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.
We keep this “daily” sacrifice of our Lord (ALWAYS bearing about the dying of our Lord Jesus) so that His life is made manifest in our mortal flesh.
(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
Jesus came in the flesh and IS COMING in the flesh….our mortal flesh… if we keep His daily sacrifice always in our bodies.
This is not about “dying and going to Heaven” but instead about receiving and living His eternal life (the promise of eternal life) in this earth as He died for us already (so we don’t have to mortally die) and is alive now so that we might LIVE now.
But why don’t we see this manifestation of the life of Jesus now in this earth?
Because of the MANY false prophets (who falsely come to us and say “peace, peace” when there is none) who come in sheep’s clothing (posing as ministers of righteousness with their church handwritings of church dogmas for us to keep) and lead MANY away from the Way that leads to His life now and down the broad way to the destruction of our mortal bodies from this earth.
They are preventing the life of Jesus from being made manifest in the mortal flesh of anyone as they are being deceived by them and led astray from the Way that leads to His life.
They remove the keeping of His “daily” sacrifice out of the lives of many so that His life is never made manifest.
Matthew 7:12-15 KJV (12) Therefore all things whatsoever ye would
that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law
and the prophets. (13) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is
the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many
there be which go in thereat: (14) Because strait is the gate, and
narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find
it. (15) Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's
clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
As Jesus predicted ahead of time, MANY shall come in His name (supposedly in His authority) saying that “I am the Christ” and shall deceive MANY. Christ = anointed one. "Christ" is a title.
They are falsely saying that they are sent by the Lord in His authority and claiming that they are anointed (the Christ) with the Spirit of God to preach to us the Word of Truth.
But they are falsely sent and are deceivers as they are saying that they are anointed when they are not. They are not anointed with the Spirit to preach.
They are “antichrist”….the instead-of-Christ....the instead-of being anointed with the Spirit of God. They are not anointed with the Spirit to speak His words. They are not who they say they are and if we listen to them, they will led us astray so that the life of Jesus is never made manifest in our mortal flesh which would give us His everlasting life in the here-and-now.
Matthew 24:4-5 KJV (4) And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take
heed that no man deceive you. (5) For many shall come in my name,
saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
We are living in this time where there are MANY “antichrists”…those who say they are anointed with the Spirit to preach His words…but they are not. We have a test to see if they are truly anointed with the Spirit to preach or not.
1 John 4:1-3 KJV (1) Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the
spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone
out into the world.
Those who do preach (spirit = breath) in the Spirit of God confess in their continual preaching (continually acknowledging) that Jesus Christ IS COMING in the flesh….our mortal flesh.
They prove to us that they are truly anointed (Christ = anointed one) by preaching this fundamental teaching of the Christ: the life of Jesus is to be made manifest in our outer mortal flesh by the keeping of His “daily” sacrifice.
Jesus Christ IS COMING in the flesh...our mortal flesh. His life is to be made manifest outwardly in our mortal flesh for the world to see who will believe it when they see it and praise God.
(2) Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth
that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
Every breath (spirit) that does not confess (acknowledge in their preaching) that Jesus Christ IS COMING in the flesh (our outer mortal flesh) is not of God. This is the breath/spirit of “antichrist”…the instead-of-anointed. They are not the anointed with the Spirit to preach.
(3) And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in
the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist,
whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it
in the world.
The deceivers (who are falsely saying that they are anointed with the Spirit to speak the words of the Lord in His authority) do not confess in their preaching that Jesus Christ IS COMING in the flesh….our mortal flesh where His life is set to appear outwardly.
2 John 1:6-11 KJV (6) And this is love, that we walk after his
commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the
beginning, ye should walk in it. (7) For many deceivers are entered
into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the
flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. (8) Look to yourselves,
that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we
receive a full reward.
Again, those who do not speak with the anointing of the Spirit of God do not teach this: that Jesus Christ is coming in our mortal flesh to give our mortal bodies His eternal life in this earth. They are not looking for Jesus to transform our humiliated-by-sin mortal bodies to be fashioned like His. They are instead preaching that we have to "die and go to Heaven' when Jesus died for us already in our place. They are preaching their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave when Jesus WAS dead and is alive now for evermore.
They preach everything but this very teaching of the Christ…of the Anointed. They prove to us by neglecting this Truth that they are not of God but are of the spirit/breath of the antichrist.
The deceivers will have none of this teaching and will react without brotherly love to those who are truly sent by Him to speak His words and teach this. They will transgress (speak evil against those who teach this) and not abide in the teaching of the truly anointed ( the teaching of THE anointed).
(9) Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of
Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he
hath both the Father and the Son.
Think about how many “antichrists” there are in the world today not teaching this doctrine (that Jesus Christ is coming in our mortal flesh as His life is to appear outwardly there)….and many do receive them.
(10) If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive
him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: (11) For he that
biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds
The scoffers will come forth when they hear the teaching of the truly anointed about receiving His eternal life in this mortal flesh (Jesus Christ IS COMING in our mortal flesh to give our earthly bodies His eternal life). They will scoff: well if this is true, then "where is the promise of His coming?"
2 Peter 3:3-4 KJV (3) Knowing this first, that there shall come in
the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, (4) And
saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell
asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the
But they forget that the wrath of God IS revealed from Heaven upon men who hold down the Truth in their unrighteousness. They themselves are perishing under His wrath as the Heavens and the earth which are now are stored with fire now for the destruction of ungodly men. But the Lord is patient with us not will that any should perish from off this earth but that all should come to repentance.
2 Peter 3:9 KJV (9) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as
some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing
that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
