Manifestations Sons of God
In the days that we are living in, many are saying that we now are living in the days of Noah and they speak about how powerful sin is and the wickedness of men.
I just want to remind everyone that God's word says that where evil abounds, God's grace will over exceed all wickedness and the greatest way He chose to do this is by using His chosen vessels, those who choose to live by faith in Christ Jesus. Rom 5
For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectancy and longs earnestly for Gods sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship]. Rom 8:19 Amp
Ktisis is the Greek word for created world and man.
We right now are living in the day where this created world and man is lifting its head and looking with earnest expectation and for the disclosing of their son ship or the manifested sons of God.
In fact, Ktisis is a strained expectation where world and man is straining in expectation from the head through their whole body causing a shaking in everything that they rationalize.
Why is created world and man straining with this expectation for the sons of God to be revealed?
God said, if our Gospel (the glad tidings) also be hidden (obscured and covered up with a veil that hinders the knowledge of God), it is hidden [only] to those who are perishing and obscured [only] to those who are spiritually dying and veiled [only] to those who are lost.
2 Cor 4:3-4
Lost man and the created world is straining its whole body for this disclosing of the sons of God to be manifested.
They are straining through the bondage of sin, despair, and hopelessness.
Through the god of this world, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
To disclose means to expose and to view as by removing a cover and to make known something heretofore kept secret.
Jesus said, there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed or hid that shall not be known. Matt 10:26
Breakthrough has come.
Arise, shine; appear, for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people:
but the LORD shall arise (to rise, come forth, break out, arise, rise up, shine to come out, appear) upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
For the saved in Christ, we live in a world that is not our home, we are just sojourning here awhile now in this dispensation but to the people that are lost, this world is their home and they live in continual fear not knowing what is going to happen to them, where they will end up, and the spiritual battle that is going on for their behalf, they live in gross darkness.
God said that he has not given us (those who are saved) a spirit of fear but of power, and love, and of a sound mind.
The word disclosure or to disclose means that God will use an object or will uncover that which was hidden out of the sight of man and creation.
There is a higher realm in the spirit called
Apokalupsis is a Greek word that means Manifestation.
When something is manifested it is said to be illuminated, shine, to light up (to set someone on fire) and to be revealed.
God's glory comes to man and upon man.
God's glory is His glory that no one can touch or duplicate.
In other words when God's glory comes upon man it is by His will and not man's.
God causes the miracles, signs, and wonders. His glory causes a manifestation to illuminate, shine, to light up and reveal what He desires.
God causes through Ktisis and Apokaupisis, created world and man to look for one like God, the Manifested sons of God.
The Holy Spirit said that redeemed man is in the very image of God.
God said let us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make man in Our Image and after Our Likeness and let them have dominion over the earth. So God created man in His own image. Gen 1:26-27
The Apostle Paul even said that the spiritual man in Christ is in a higher realm then the natural physical man as found in fallen Adam.
In the Old Testament, the Priest would go into the Holy Place where the bronze laver was placed right by the Holy Of Holies.
The priest would enter into the Holy place and before they could go into the Holy of Holies they would have to lean over and look into the bronze laver and wash their hands and feet as a way of purification.
As they would lean over to wash something
marvelous would happen.
They would see themselves as if in a mirror, created like God, in His image, in His likeness.
God creator of all, whose form has never been seen before, reveals Himself through the image of man.
We are entering the time where God is causing man and creation to lean over to see themselves as in the mirror of heaven to see who they truly are, whether they are the sons of God or the sons of fallen man.
But we all with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of The Lord, are being changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of The Lord. 2 Cor 3:18
Apostle Peter said through the Holy Spirit, that we have been regenerated "Born Again" not from mortal origin (seed, sperm) but from one that is immortal, by the ever living and lasting Word of God. 1 Peter 1:23
This phrase "Born Again" was spoken by Jesus Himself in John 3:3.
Jesus answered Nicodemus and said to him, I assure you most solemnly, I tell you that unless a person is Born Again (anew, from above) he cannot even see (know, be acquainted with and experience) the Kingdom of God.
Christ, through His abundant mercy hath begotten us again. 1 Peter 1:3
God has delivered us from the power of darkness and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son through the Blood of Jesus Christ.
Anothen is the Greek word Again.
Again has three meanings
1. Of things which come from Heaven
2. From the first, from the beginning
3. Anew, over again
Those that receive Him (Jesus Christ), to them gave he (you) power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.
The sons of God are the ones that believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God for the remission of our sins and has delivered us from the power of darkness and has translated us into the Kingdom of God.
Through the Blood of Jesus Christ on the cross you have been brought back to the very beginning of creation when the Father, Son and Holy Spirit created man.
You have been born of heaven, anew, over again. Born afresh (Anew; again; once more; newly) from God who dwells and sits on His throne from Heaven.
The Bible speaks through the Holy Spirit, about different levels of son ship.
Jesus Himself spoke of the seed going into the
ground in Mark 4:11-20.
The ones that hear the word and receive it are the ones that bring forth thirty fold, sixty fold and some an hundred.
Romans 12:1-2 Amp Is making an appeal and begging the sons of God in view of (all) the mercies of God to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.
Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to the external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideas and it's new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
The maturity of the sons of God are in four stages.
1st stage is coming to the knowledge of God through repentance and asking God into one's life. It is called being crucified with Christ Gal 2:20.
2nd stage is the stalk. Where one is in growth, called in the Greek napeos. Paul said Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation—1Peter 2:2 EST.
3rd stage is called the head. Where you become able to stand against adversity of the enemy.
4th stage is where the full grain or the ripe grain is in the head and ready for harvesting.
God uses us to harvest the world. We are placed in that interment reciprocal relationship formed by bonds of love, friendship and trust.
We have the same spirit of faith according to the written word of God.
We have the very same faith as God and we speak with Authority, called the creative spoken word that looks into the Throne room of God and sees the eternal everlasting things of God and calls them forth into our world for the purposes of God.
This is called the Manifested sons of God.
The word conformed is to become or be like of the same form.
Gen 1:26 says that you have been conformed after God's likeness and in His image from the same mold and form of God.
Conformed refers to that which is external, an inner change of nature working into the outer life.
God has given redeemed man Power to become
2 Pet 1:3
This says that His divine Power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requested and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellent (virtue).
God has given us divine Power for all things.
This is called Dunamis Power. Dunamis is the Greek word for inherent power. Dunamis power is power in action, miraculous power ability, capable of anything and for all things.
Manifested sons of God are like Elijah and Elisha 2 Kings 2
Elijah tried to keep Elisha from following him from one place to another. Elisha followed Elijah to Bethel.
Bethel is the place where we meet The Lord and is a place of surrender.
Elijah again tries to discourage Elisha from following him and off to Jericho they go.
Jericho is the place where you have to be still and know who God is and when you realize that you are a son of God you shout and all the walls come down in your life.
Again Elijah tries to keep Elisha from following him, and again off they go and this time to the Jordan.
Jordan is the place of total surrender and at this place of surrender revelation comes to Elisha.
Elisha sees the Chariots of Fire and the horse men, he sees the whirlwind of God and receives his double portion of the spirit of Elisha.
The whirlwind is called the Dunamis power of God.
Elisha picked up Elisha's mantle and started to smite the waters just like His master did.
Elisha's secret was to stay close to Elijah, not to let him get out of his sight or to be deterred or distracted from his master.
The Manifested sons of God will have a spirit like Elisha, they will not be distracted or discouraged from Jesus Christ.
They will follow The Lord wherever He goes and pick up the Dunamis mantle of The Lord, (not a double portion mantle) as it falls on them and smite the earth with His glory.
Miracles, Signs, and Wonders do not change a people.
Yes, it will have an effect on them but just like Israel, as they were in the desert for 40yrs.
The real change is in the presence of The Lord; this is what the manifested sons of God will shine forth.
Many will say that this will be the time of the double portion as in 2 Kings 2:14.
Today for some, is the double anointing of Elijah, but for those who can see beyond the gifting and mantles of God on men, this will be the year of the Presence of God their Father with them, as they go smiting the Earth in His power and glory.
