th end of all flesh…

06africa06

everything apart from Jesus Christ is sin…Christ alone conquered sin and death…so that whoever continues in sin is apart from Christ and whoever is in Christ does not continue in sin…sin is flesh, its life apart from God, th same life that adam was left wit when he was cast outta heaven…all th begets in th OT tell u th life of adam, his sons and builders of cities and inventers of music and whatnot…but its all adam and its all flesh…and all of it is sin…only what God does is eternal and perfect and holy…

sin isnt mere actions tht can be judged of their own merit being either good or bad or whatever bc they are plainly seen…but everything that is apart from Christ…bc Christ is from God and is God and is life itself…and so th life tht adam has is actually death (separation from God) and is apart from Christ…and th life of th born again child of God is actually God’s own life and that life is Christ…

those who are born of th Spirit have their life IN Christ…we live and move and have our being IN Him…those who are not born of ht Spirit, are yet dead in trespass and sin and will return to dust unless th Lord saves em and they are born of th Spirit…

and bc we have our being IN Christ, we can say with confidence, i can do all thangs thru Christ who strengthens me…or put another way, i can do all thangs thru Christ bc Christ IS my strength (life) …in Christ we are weak (decreasing) but in our weakness (decrease) God’s power is made perfect…we can rejoice with paul, we no longer live but Christ lives in us…

just as Christ is th mediator btwn God and man, so is He mediator btwn men…th cross stands in th center of life, just as th tree of life stood in th midst of th garden of eden, just as th cross stood between th 2 thieves on calvary…there is no relationship with our Father apart from Christ and there is no relationship btwn ppl apart from Christ…but fa some reason, we dont understand His mediation btwn ppl…we dont see th work of th cross btwn our relationships…light and darkness have no communion…but th love of God is shed abroad in our hearts…and so its not us in communion with th world or with brethren anymore; it is Christ in us being made known by th love of God shed abroad in our hearts; Christ lives and we decrease…

we understand that apart from Christ, sin is not forgiven, man is guilty before God and unable to commend himself and cant enter into eternal life which is th Kingdom of God…

thru Christ, we are restored to our Father, we bear righteous fruit bc we be grafted on the true vine of life, we are born of th Spirit of God and th Spirit of God indwells us and leads us into all truth…God has made a way outta temptation…that way is Christ in us…

how necessary that way is fa us to be in relationship with ppl in th earth…bc whether strangers, brethren or even enemies, we are told to love, to forgive, to bless and not curse; whether ppl be friendly or wicked toward us we are told to remain in Christ (forgive them, as we are forgiven, bc forgiving and bein forgiven is by th same way–Christ) and to dont return to th ways of adam (a dog returning to his vomit, putting hand to plow and looking back, not hating father and mother–th natural inclinations provoked by circumstance and flesh which all are born with and sharpened in th natural man)

adam only loves his own kind, and hates his enemies; adam plots revenge, being incapable of mercy and forgiveness which come from God alone, and which th natural man (adam) cant receive bc its Spiritually discerned…but we arent to live by how we were shaped and grown by natural families, & by natural circumstances…we are to live as Christ lived in th earth…He came to serve th Father and demonstrated that without carnal weapons, without defending hisself, without answering flesh, without demanding to be served…everything He did, tho its always preached that He came to serve men and so we should also serve men, in fact He served His Father, makin hisself th least in every circumstance and was lifted up by His Father not by men…His bretheren, His mother are those who do th work of His Father in heaven…

th least shall be th greatest…th greatest shall be th servant of all…isnt that Christ???? its not a standard men can achieve…its a declaration of Christ…He who made Himself th least (became man, became sin fa us, a body prepared fa Him) was lifted up by His Father, raised from th dead (us) and seated on th right hand of th Father…we have no glory to give Him, but He is glorified by His Father with th glory He knew from before th beginning, th glory He always had with His Father…

didnt th glory of God fill th temple?  and isnt that why th temple was holy?  Jesus Christ is th temple of God which came down from heaven…that city on a hill…that city built by God, filled with God…He is th builder and maker of th city of God, th builder of th temple…He alone, not any man…

th man Christ Jesus that ppl saw walkin was th veil separating us from th Holy of Holies, th veil that was His body…and thru Him (th mediator, th ONE who is in th middle, standing in th gap, standing btwn th living and dead) we enter into fellowship with our Father, God…thru Christ…

what is born of flesh is flesh…every single thang u see in th world is born of flesh…is th result of th adamic mind, which is th natural man, and so its flesh and reaps corruption…its why systems are flawed, inventions degrade, everything of th adamic mind is doomed to fail…all of it…cities, systems, economies, human relationships, families, govs, towers and caves and mines, all of it…bc they all are of flesh and are temporal…

those who sow after th flesh reap corruption…and corruption is really th best word to describe what happens to everythin that adam has conceieved, designed and built…

but those who walk after th Spirit reap eternal life…not corruption…

religions and th spirit of religion hijack and pervert Scripture (which testifies of Christ) and insist it become th base to build up adam, to help th natural man enjoy whatever he can gain in this world and hold onto whatever he can gain OF th world…and so many ‘relationships’ btwen ppl are considered to be ‘christian relationships’ or btwn brethren…when it didnt gone thru Christ but is shaped by religious dogma and false doctrine…light and darkness have no fellowship…th world is darkness and th ppl are in deep darkness…so its not possible fa th childrfen of light to walk in darkness, nor th children of darkness to walk in th light…each is separated from th other…like th rich man and lazarus…

th man of sin exalts certain ppl over others; contests, popularity tactics, voting, pitting one human or nation against another human or nation, its all flesh…this makes adam a mediator of sorts, a false christ who wanna judge btwen life and death, who should live and who should die…carnal thoughts, carnal weapons, carnal judgment…not as righteous judgment which is not carnal but is rooted in Christ and comes FROM Christ not from adam…

we are to be servants, not serving flesh but serving th Lord Jesus Christ bc He is Lord God and King; therefore we neither exalt nor choose any man, knowing that only Christ is raised from th dead and we with Him are seated in heavenly places, reigning with (by, bc of, thru) Him over OUR OWN flesh– not over other ppl (whoever is able to bridle his own tongue)…we are not seated next to Him on th throne as its always promised…He is seated INSTEAD Of us; we decrease and He increases…its not i who lives but Christ lives in me…

th man of sin raises up ‘leaders’ and ‘leadership’ who demand and need followers, and who wallow in th mire of th natural man to get what they want…they are exalted above others…they are paid, but th followers are expected to volunteer and be uncompensated fa their labor and fidelity…th leadership will tell u without even blinking they are ‘leading’ a ‘ministry’ and therefore God Himself will provide th laborers…what they dont get is …if that was really true, if it really was a ministry, and if by th terms of ministry nobody is suppose to get paid bc God provides free labor, that they have no reason to be paid either and as ‘leaders’ are suppose to lead, be first, set th example, however u define it, they should be th first volunteers…but they never are…and so its jsut another scheme of th man of sin coercing ppl using Scripture and parading himself as one who is doing th will of God–but only Jesus Christ is th Will of God…

Christ is th first AND th last…He actually leads and we actually follow Him…no money necessary, no tithes, no corporations, no tax exempt status, no titles, no exalted flesh, no adamic gov involvement, just th Spirit of th Living God and His ppl…

course all that false doctrine btwn leaders and followers actually proves they arent doin ‘ministry’; only th Spirit of God has a ministry –its th ministry of reconciliation– He convicts th world of sin, righteousness and judgment; He reveals Christ and speaks not of His own but only what He hears…and what He does is by His own power, not bc men scheme, incorporate and gather themselves together…th man of sin has no ministry at all, bc he dont minister, he buy sell and barter…he lookin for his own gain and to build up his own image and towers…even if his own image is one of benevolence, or nobility toward humanity…its still flesh and will reap corruption…our righteousness is as filthy rags, says th Lord Jesus Christ…we have nothing to offer and everything we think is good will be proved to be filthy by th Lord Himself…

Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king has demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, show to the king; But there is a God in heaven that reveals secrets, and makes known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Your dream, and the visions of your head upon your bed, are these;  As for you, O king, your thoughts came into your mind upon your bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that reveals secrets makes known to you what shall come to pass. But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that you might know the thoughts of your heart. Daniel 2:27-30

daniel tells nebuchadnezzar first, that his dream is from his own mind, th visions of his head upon his bed (th natural mind, as a garden bed)

but th marriage bed (th mind of Christ, th garden of eden and th garden of gethsemane–Christ lives and adam dies), is undefiled and what comes outta th mind (marriage bed) of Christ dont defile a man bc it is Christ pouring out as th water in cana poured outta th earthen vessels…and th thoughts of that bed are th thoughts of th new heart given by God when th stone heart is removed…

God reveals to nebuchadnezar th thoughts of nebuchadnezzar’s own heart…tho he was king, he didnt know th sound of his own voice…

th man of sin lies and is th father of lies…and he rules over th unwashed like a king but only Christ is King…

You, O king, saw, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you; and the form thereof was terrible. This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,  His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. You saw till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.  Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. Daniel 2:31-36

here is th fullness of man, th end of all flesh, as God saw it, not an end as we understand it to mean to cease altho it will cease, but what it comes to be…th end–th fruit, th finished product, which has  been labored on since adam left th garden of eden and began to make his own life by th sweat of his brow, cast outta th presence of God…a gold head resting on kingdoms of what men consider precious metals mined from th earth, standing on feet of clay and iron…man in all his own glory, big, shiny, decorated and invincible…th strength of nations larger than life…

this is what nebuchadnezzar saw, th thoughts of his own heart in his own bed, and he didnt even know it was his own heart that was bein revealed to him by God…bc th natural man cant receive th thangs of God, bc they are Spiritually discerned…

and so here stood th fullness of man, not a living breathing thang, but something that looked like man without th frailty of skin and bones exposed, woven together with & covered over in metals, th wealth of nations–man’s glory– protecting th fullness of man…

You, O king, are a king of kings: for the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.  And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven has he given into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all. You are this head of gold.  And after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to you, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things: and as iron that breaks all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay.  And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.  And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave [adam marry plus sons of God & daughters [th daughter of God is th bride of Christ male & female are His bride, His sister, of His own body, as eve was of adam] of men) one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.  And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.  Forasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God has made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.  Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.  Daniel 2:37-46

so daniel begins by tellin nebuchadnezzar his kingdom, his rule, is over th beasts of th field and th birds of th air wherever th children of men dwell…theres so much in that about how adam was made of th earth (like th bieasts and th fowls) and how his stone heart is so like th beasts and th birds — destined to dust…nebuchadnezzar’s rule was over beast and birds, not over men…God’s ppl dont desire a king like th other nations have…

so after daniel says he dont know more than any other and that all th secret was exposed by th God of heaven and didnt come to daniel but actually came to nebuchadnezzar so he could know th thoughts of his own heart, nebuchadnezzar exalts daniel and wanna worship him like a god…how come? bc th natural man cant receive th thangs of God bc they are Spiritually discerned…and a perfect example of how even when God DOES expose th natural man’s own hearts and inclinations…they dont hear Him at all…they continue in sin, exalting and choosing men, worshipping th created image that they see, instead of th creator, who they dont know…

The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing you could reveal this secret.  Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon.  Then Daniel requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel sat in the gate of the king. Daniel 2:47-49

Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.  Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages,  That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:  And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.  Daniel 3:1-6

and so th natural man, having heard from daniel and not from God, saw daniel as greater than himself, calling daniel’s ‘god’ greater but mistaking daniel as that god, sets about and builds th image that th God of heaven plainly says He will destroy…and nebuchadnezar makes th image a thang to be worshipped, and whoever dont worship it, will die…

such is th world system…whoever dont participate according to th govs and countries of th world are deemed worthy of death…whoever dont bow down to its systems, its policies, its image, which actually shrouds its true self, is worthy of death…if u dont go to college u wont get a job and u wont afford food and u will die…if u dont buy insurance, u wont afford medicine and u will die…if u dont pay ur taxes u will go to prison and lose everything and u will die…everything to sustain man in th earth is sold on th black market, licensed and ‘owned’ by th man of sin who, by th way, stole it from God…but nobody knows that…so everyone slaves after th makings of a life in th earth…tryna redeem his life and his familys wit labor and toil and by th sweat of his brow…and not many see it as slavery tho most would declare it a taskmaster bc most are tired…

intersting about this image nebuchadnezzar dreamed up and built and worshipped…all th precious metals mined from th earth, dug out, this is what it looks like, not at all like th creation of God which was formed of earth…but this one was formed wit th shiny stuff under th earth…th heart of stone all shiny and glittery…all th kingdoms merged into one big man, th kingdoms & ppls of th earth risin up as one man…all of adam risin up as one adam…th end of all flesh…

th man of sin do it like that…exalts every thought that exalts itself against th knowledge of God…and every thought comes to one end…th fullness of man and th end of all flesh bein destroyed by Christ who is th rock cut without hands…

and notice this too…not in th middle of building, not in th beginning of building…but after its all completed…after its all built and standin up ready to be worshipped, this is whtn th Lord Jesus Christ breaks–not th head–only men seek to overthrow heads–th Lord breaks th toes…and th whole fullness of man falls and every kingdom annd every shiny thang is broken and like th chaff is blown away by th winds…nothin left standin except Jesus Christ…bc adam fails and Christ remains…

nebuchadnezzar musta mined th earth fa th precious metals to build his man idol, th fullness of man, and maybe dug deep into mountains to get every last shiny piece…but Jesus Christ is th rock cut without hands, that increased and took over th whole earth…His Kingdom will never end…

Jesus Christ is eternal life and th last man standing…nothing, not even all of adam risin up as one man to be worshipped and bowed down to, can stop Christ or prevent their own end…

One comment on “th end of all flesh…

    Love this so much! Beautiful reminders that HE is Lord, the last Man standing, and that all the glittery empires will fall, from toe to head. Men want to rule over men, in governments, in kingdoms, in workplaces, in churches.. same spirit, and while they declare one thing, they live after another.. the wealth of this world, like how that man of sin is created by the riches of this world, but all will be destroyed. We are not after the OT or some lineage record from Adam.. but we begin in Christ, and Christ began in the Father.. pure & undefiled, completely separated from the world.. cut without hands (no man tampered with Him, or caused Him to come out).
