THIS IS THE APOSTOLIC REFORMED GOSPEL.
Through the end time forerunner ministries of the manifested sons of God the following revelation shall echo throughout the church, until they get it.
Are you really crucified with Christ?
Multitudes have lessened the Crown of the overcomer to a salvation experience.
Salvation is very different than running and finishing the race and the upward call of God in Christ according to Philippians 3.
This is going to be a major part of the judgment on the house of God now in the coming season through major Apostolic reformation.
Most people are ignorant of the actual power of your personal cross to destroy the sinner in us. Most are parelyzed in the level of salvation and are still carnal fleshly religious Sunday to Sunday church going babies.
Conviction of being a sinner in need of salvation through the cross and the blood of Jesus Christ only brings a person to the foot of His cross.
But sanctification through the pathway, experience and death of your personal cross is what actually crucifies us with Jesus and brings us into an overcoming experience.
He said to take up “your” cross not His cross.
Luk 9:23 And He said to them all, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
I prophesy to this generation that there is a personal cross waiting in the future of many.
John’s baptism was only in water unto repentance but Christ’s baptism is a Spiritual baptism and circumcision unto the death of self. When He takes you through the baptism of the prophesied fire then He refers to the baptism by the power of the Holy Spirit by which God brings you to the end of yourself.
The death of the old order of the flesh through the experience and circumcision of your personal cross ushers in the actual resurrection of the new creation after the image and the likeness of Christ.
Romans 8:12 Therefore, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13 For if you live after the flesh, you shall die: but if you through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, you shall live.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
How was Jesus glorified?
Through His cross
Matthew 12: 23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
24 Truly, truly, I say to you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it stays alone: but if it die, it brings forth much fruit.
25 He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it to life eternal.
26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honor.
How are we glorified?
Through our personal cross.
1 Peter 4
1 For as much then as Christ has suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin;
2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have worked the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revelings, parties, and abominable idolatries:
4 Wherein they think it strange that you run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
2 Fulfill you my joy, that you be like minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took on him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient to death, even the death of the cross.
9 Why God also has highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
12 Why, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
13 For it is God which works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
His cross saves you from sin = salvation
Your cross delivers you from sin = crown of the overcomer
His cross forgives your past = saved by grace = salvation
Your cross heals you from your past = changed and restored and sanctified = crowned as an overcomer
It’s those who overcome that shall sit with Him in His throne.
Revelation 3:21 To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said to the churches.
A mature spiritual kingdom minded person is ruled by the lordship and Kingship of Christ
A fleshly baby is ruled by the desires of his flesh and only sees Christ as his Savior.
Consider the Lamb and the Lion ministry of Yeshua as spoken by His Spirit through J Leland Earls;
You shall note that it was the Lion of the tribe of Judah who prevailed to open the seven-sealed book (Rev. 5:5), yet it was a Lamb who took the book, or scroll, from the hand of Him that sat on the throne and opened the seals thereof (Rev. 5:6-7, 6:1).
What does this portray?
It portrays the truth of Jesus’ ministry as King-priest (Heb. 5:10, 7:1-2).
As a priest, He is the Lamb of God who gave Himself as the perfect sacrifice on the cross and who ever lives to make intercession for the redeemed (Heb. 7:25-27). As a King, He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah who reigns on the throne of David (Isa. 9:6-7, Luke 1:31-33). Now, during this dispensation of redemption, His Lamb ministry predominates; that is why He is seen as a Lamb (Rev. 5:6).
But as the present dispensation draws to a close, and the seals of judgment are opened to bring to an end the mis-rule of man, it is the Lion ministry that begins to prevail; for Jesus the King begins to actively take over that which is rightfully His. He begins to exert the power and authority which was given to Him after His resurrection (Matt. 28:18), in such a way as to completely eliminate the usurpation of Satan-controlled man, and exercise His own right as King.
It is during the end-time period of the seals and the trumpets that forces of judgment are set in motion, so that man’s civilization will utterly collapse, and thus finally it becomes fulfilled that ‘the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and he shall reign for the eons.’ (Rev. 11:15).
The lion nature of Jesus’ ruling authority must be made manifest, and this begins to prevail as the seals are opened, but it does not completely predominate until all rival rule and authority has been put down. First, His Lamb ministry of redemption must be completely fulfilled for the present age, even though His Lion ministry of Kingship begins to come to the fore.
This, my people, must also be the pattern in your own lives. First, you must fulfill the pattern of the Lamb. You must learn submission, meekness, sacrifice, and willingness to hear and follow the voice of the Shepherd (John 10:27), or you will never enter the Lion ministry of joint-rulership with Christ. If you are fully yielded and prepared as a Lamb, then you shall come forth in that end-time ministry of power, boldness and authority which is symbolized by the Lion.
The fact that the Lion of the tribe of Judah has begun to exercise His prerogatives will be manifested on the earth, not only by judgments upon man’s civilization, but also by the bringing forth of a people who shall enter into spiritual realms of ‘ruling with Christ’ that no people have ever experienced before, and which shall cause a spiritual ‘shaking’ and revival unprecedented in human history.
Great shall be the glory, power, and dominion which shall be shown forth by a people who have first come into the fullness of the Lamb nature of full submission, and then are moved into the Lion ministry of the Lord’s end-time glorious church.
