In this book, you will discover we are redefining our understanding of the cross and the reason for Jesus’ Passion. We are going to use some terminology not used in any of our previous teachings. As we grow in our understanding, there are times where we do not fully understand many sections of Scripture. Where Scripture is concerned, we desire to understand. It is time to move beyond the stage of “looking through a glass darkly”. If we are not seeing something clearly, we cannot minister from that subject with clarity. Once clarity comes and the quickening of a Scripture takes place within, we are confident to explain, teach and preach from that subjected. If we are not sure of something, then we should leave it alone, until that quickening assurance comes. At the time of this teaching and writing, we are in a time of redefining. In our Spirit, we are all ears. We know, in our Holy Spirit, Father is always speaking. Our part is to tune in to the right vibrational frequencies to hear what “thus saith the Holy Spirit” unto us. We are beginning to see some things coming forth with a greater clarity that what we saw before. From the Spiritual sight we possess today, we will redefine much of what we taught in the past, with greater insight and light. It is vital for a teacher to minister with a clear sounding word, and that is our desire as we teach. As you start to read this book, please do not think it is going to be a repeat of what you have read or heard before. Some of what you read might sound similar. Nevertheless, there will be some fresh revelation, unveiling and uncovering of understanding brought to the reader in the chapters of this book. The book of Proverbs instructs us to seek after understanding and knowledge. The reason being, it brings great protection to the seeker. Some of what is contained in our book might cause the reader to squirm a bit. Still, anytime we read or hear new revelation, it brings greater understanding that we can embrace. In our first chapter, we will set the tone for the remaining chapters. What we need to understanding is what the cross really did, and what the cross did not do. It is just as important to know what it did not do, as what it did. There are a number of people, who are into “grace” teaching, or “finished work” teaching, who are still hanging onto some of the ideas of Penal Substitution. We are going to help the reader understand what Penal Substitution really is. Penal Substitution is the idea that Father God was angry with man, and so he killed his Son. If a person did something to offend a person, and that person took it out on another person, would that be right? No, it would not. That is what Penal Substitutionary Atonement teaching is. That teaching says that Adam partook of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he ate the fruit because the “serpent” told them if they ate the fruit, they would be like God. Consequently, Father God was mad at all humanity. I know it might be difficult to read this but that is not true. That teaching says the only thing Father God could do, was to kill his Son. In Isaiah chapter fifty-three there is a statement that says, “We did esteem him smitten and stricken of God.” Isaiah was correct about that, Jesus was smitten, but He was not smitten and stricken of God. That thought comes from man who draws understanding from the five-sense realm. (1) Still over two thousand years later, man continues to esteem Jesus’ work from the sense realm, rather than the spirit. (2) Our Father Creator was in Jesus Christ, reconciling the world unto himself. (3) Another false perception about God that we have had in the past is that God needed a blood sacrifice in order to change his mood about humanity, like an anti-depressant changes moods. That is the teaching of substitutionary Penal Substitution. The thought is that God needed a sacrifice to turn away his fury and there needed to be a surgical operation to where God’s wrath gland was removed. Yes, this is a dramatic way of explaining it, but it needs to be explained so we can stand back and realize how silly it is to believe some of these things. We must move on in our understanding and knowledge of the Truth of the Gospel. In order to live out of the life of God (hit the mark) one must have his or her path set straight. Many years ago, there was a story that was told about an airline Pilot who took off from the L. A. Airport to fly to Hawaii. Two hours into his flight, he received a call from the control center to inform him that his direction was off one degree. If he had ignored the request to correct his direction, he and all on the plane would have crashed into the ocean. Being off one degree, four hours away from Hawaii, would cause them to miss the Islands of Hawaii by hundreds of miles. The same is true of us today. If our understanding is off just a little bit, we will continue to “miss the mark,” which is the real meaning of the word ‘sin’. (4) As of the writing of this book, we are over 2,016 years from the day when Jesus restored man to live out of Life and Life More Abundantly. A wise person would see the false and illegal estate of the earth today and say, “We might be missing the mark in our understanding.” In the book of James, he instructs his students not to desire the office of a teacher or instructor. If someone is functioning in that office, they need to be sure they are “anointed” to do so. One of the Hebrew meanings of the word “anointed” (5) means to be consecrated. The Priests were always consecrated before they entered into the priesthood. To be consecrated they had to “witness” the sacrifices, not “do” the sacrifices themselves. They watched Aaron and his sons do the sacrifice, and then they placed the blood on the right ear lobe to consecrate what they heard, on the right thumb to consecrate the work they did, and on the right big toe to consecrate their walk. If you claim to be an anointed instructor of the Word, you must not compromise the Truth of the Gospel. If one does, then he or she will experience a sense of condemnation, and revelation knowledge will cease to flow. In the story of the Airline Pilot, the responsible party to give correction to the error of the Pilot was the Air Traffic Control person. The Pilot believed himself to be correct in his direction. Likewise, we who are anointed (seen the Truth of the Gospel) are responsible to teach the whole truth of the Gospel, not a watered down version of it. Why? Because being off just a little bit in our belief, makes us and those we instruct greatly miss the mark in the Word of Truth. We know God does not change. The teaching of Penal Substitution says that God needed a blood sacrifice so he could change his idea about man; hence the work of the cross. We can be sure our Father never changes. Nothing ever changes about our Father Creator, our Spirit. Let us read a few verses of Scripture to build our foundation. James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” KJV We had the idea that after Jesus went to the cross, God got what he desired and it changed his mood about humanity. “His frown was turned upside down, and he was no longer angry because he was appeased with the suffering, blood and death of his Son.” There could be nothing further from the truth. We do see that he did become what sin was (an illegal degenerate nature activity), died spiritually and entered the hell of being the Federal Head Human. Jesus Christ came to reveal the oneness and the love of the Father. In the Virgin Birth, his Incarnation, his ministry, his death, burial and resurrection, he revealed the love and the oneness of the Father. He did not give his life for God; he gave his life to us. Jesus Christ was not a ransom to God. He was a ransom to man. He gave his life freely to man. Accordingly, in a nutshell, James 1:17 said God cannot change and does not change. Therefore, why would we think his mood toward man changed when Jesus went to the cross? Another proof text is Malachi 3:6 “For I am the Lord, I change not…” Then we find another very familiar Scripture in Hebrews 13:8“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” We could say, “Our Father is the same, yesterday, and today and forever.” Conversely, this is what they teach in the religious systems: “Penal Substitution belief proves God is no longer angry with man.” This is how they explain Scriptures about “Sodom and Gomorrah”, about “Jacob have I loved, Esau have I hated,” about the “Flood of Noah” and any Scripture that is in the past that is hard to explain. The people who continue to believe in Substitutionary Penal Atonement say, “Well that was before the cross.” Then our question is, “Did God changed after the cross?” That is not possible because He changes not. They are saying that God at one time was angry and vengeful, but after he got a little blood that changed his mood. Now they teach He is no longer angry at humanity. Ninety-nine percent of those called “The Church,” still believe in Penal Substitution. It was always difficult to understand Scripture that seemed to endorse Penal Substitution. Now that we can see more clearly concerning these things and what was written in the Word, it is being disentangle with what we know, and we can get into the various sections of Scripture and teach it clearly. If we cannot take the Gospel of the Good News, the finished work of Calvary, and the message of the Person of Grace and minister it in every nation of the world, then something is wrong with it. If you are not able to do that then you have a distorted gospel. There are some countries that would not “buy and sell” Penal Substitutionary Atonement. The reason being is, their justice systems do not allow them to agree with that, and they offer sacrifices to demigods. In the Old Testament they had all kinds of gods people worshiped and they offered human sacrifices to them. They hear the teaching of Penal Substitution and say this doctrine makes God to be a murder. “If God had to send his Son to the cross to change his mind about humanity, you are making him the father of murders.” Let us read from Hebrew chapter 10:5-8 to see what the writer of the book of Hebrews has to say about our subject. “Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;” These verses are references to Psalms 50, where the Psalmist began to write about the fact that God did not desire sacrifices and offerings. In Psalm 50, the subject was about the preincarnate Christ. Right in the midst of these people making massive amounts of sacrifices, Isaiah was speaking that God does not desire the sacrifices they were doing. God said, “I do not want your sacrifices; I do not want any bloodshed,” and in Hebrews 10 it tells us God took no pleasure in sacrifices and offerings. What the Church did was take this down to the dimension where Father God wanted a man to be the sacrifice. Moreover, man thought the sacrifice had to be his Son Jesus Christ. That is a brilliant solution to a man, whose breath (understanding) is in their nostrils (sense realm). (2) They have no problem for God to become a man, sacrifice himself to himself to satisfy himself for himself. This teaching brings in a lot of confusion in the body of Christ. This is the way the majority, including ourselves have taught this; that God was so angry with man that he needed a sacrifice. So throughout all of the Old Testament animal sacrifices, what it did was to hold God over like the appetizers before the great meal. The great meal came, and God was satisfied the Lamb being the offering. Now, we carry this over into the New Covenant and we say, “Okay, it’s not the blood of bulls and goats that he desires but it is a human sacrifice he desires.” They say the reason he desired a human sacrifice is because God had to change his mind about humanity. Please understanding what we have written thus far. Our Father Creator was never angry with man. Adam’s action in the Garden (deciding to learn from his own sense realm experience) thousands of years ago did not surprise God whatsoever, and it did not change his mind. What did he say to Adam when God pointed out to him that he/they were no longer aware of the realm of Spirit? He said, “Who told you, you are naked (void of my life).” “Who told you, you are separate from me?” “Who told you that you are not one as me?” In our age, we must ask these questions of ourselves. Who told us we are only “sinners saved by grace?” Who told us God desired offering and killing a human sacrifice to appease his vindictive anger and violence toward a people that partook of something, thinking they could be like God? In verse five again, “Wherefore when he came into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not…” Did God ever desire the sacrifices, the blood of animals and the offerings made by man? Not according to Jesus who was doing the speaking in Psalm 50 when the sacrifices and offerings were in full force. He spoke to David and said, “I do not want that blood place of sacrifice.” David stood before the people and said, “God never wanted this.” He said, “Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:” This is where we usually stop and say, “God did not desire the sacrificial animals, but he did desire the body of Jesus Christ.” Jesus did not give his life for God; he gave his life for us as us. Jesus was not a ransom to God to appease his anger; he was a ransom to us. Continually, we see the majority of Christendom believing God wanted the body of Jesus as a sacrifice. In reference to where David wrote, “but a body hast thou prepared me,” some say that is the sacrifice God prepared and needed. In other words, God did not desire the offerings of men, but he wanted a human sacrifice. That is what people believe. Accordingly, in this time of redefining, what we need to do is to think through our beliefs and make sure what we believe is Truth. As you read our book, allow your Holy Spirit to reveal to you what you need to understand from Father’s point, and not from man’s perception, apart from the Mind of Christ – our Holy Spirit. We who call ourselves the Church are to be a force in the earth. The issue is not man’s interpretation of the meaning of the word “sin”. The issue is Jesus Christ, what he did, and who we are as the result of his work. Paul the Apostle said, “Do not be sin conscious.” Why would we think that he later wrote in his writings about outward, fleshly sins? With a surface level reading, one would think that when Paul talked about the flesh, he was referring to outward sin. We believe that when Paul talked about natural affection, a man with a man and a woman with a woman, he was not talking about homosexuality. He was referring to a state of awareness that can bring that on, but he was really talking about an awareness that “religious minded” people were walking in. When the carnal awareness is removed out of the way, and they no longer possess a sin and death consciousness, they will not create or give power to those things, against which they are preaching. When a false sense of identity is in place, it produces an identity crises to those who sit under that mindset. A person will act out of the identity of whom they believe themselves to be. The religious community is the ones screaming the loudest over this. Our Father Creator placed us to be a force in the earth, to see as the Father sees, and to declare the end from the beginning. As the body of Christ begins to operate from this stance, they are going to be declaring the end from the beginning; they will not be harping on outer sins. None of the “works of the flesh,” discussed in Galatians chapter five have anything to do with what many call, “outward sins.” “Outward sins,” are actually, what one does when they do not know who they are as Christ the new man. All those actions are fruits of not drawing from one’s Spirit for peace and life. In addition, those actions do not separate anyone from the Love of God, which is Jesus’ Redemptive work. The real sin is not living out of who you are. Therefore, we can safely agree, “There is no such thing as “sin” in the New Covenant, with the exception of unbelief as to who you are.” The acronym for the word “sin” is “to see it needlessly”. It is zero – there is no sin other than unbelief. When we find the word disobedience in the Word, it is the Greek word “parakouo”, which means “unbelief” resulting from inattention or to mishear. (6) There is no shortage of people, who have very little passion to hear the Truth of the Gospel. Consequently, those who are ‘dual of hearing’ give very little attention to what a Most Holy Place Messenger explains and teaches. Even more, they mishear the teacher because they filter what they heard through the beliefs that come from the various man made religious teachings. Likewise, God spoke through Hosea as recorded in chapter four verse six, and said, “My people live a life of non-existence and are weak, sick and die needlessly for lack of knowledge: Since they have rejected the knowledge and understanding of the resource within their spirit, of which I speak, I will also reject them. The result is, they will not be able to serve as a priest unto me and my people; seeing they have forgotten the law of God, and followed after their own laws, and what they have done will also affect their offspring.” RERichmond MHPV® We have been taught by religious denominations that sin is certain behaviors. The truth is: sin is a state of unbelief. A person will not fully grow in understanding, until they see and believe this fact. This is what the Apostle Paul meant by not discerning one another after the “flesh.” The flesh represents the Law, and whatever laws one strives to follow, is how they judge other people and even themselves. We are to judge one another after the Spirit – after who we all really are. Again, if we do not believe, and then see this fact, we will always be sin conscious with others and ourselves. We do not want to know people according to what they do or do not do. This is it in a nutshell: The only sin in the New Covenant is unbelief. In fact, the first man’s sin was unbelief. Adam and Eve forgot who they were and tried to do something to become who they already were. We can also say it like this: If we believe that in we have to do something to be right with God, addition to the work of the cross and God’s plan of redemption through Jesus Christ, then we are unbelievers, and that is sin. Under the Old Covenant, some races of people had different demigods to whom they offered sacrifices. They burned their children on the arms of Moloch and worshiped Chiun Remphan. The Greeks had many, many others. The children of Israel at times got involved in this false worship. There are people on this planet today who continue to worship demigods (false gods). If we tried to tell people who were involved in the worship of false Gods that God did not want the blood of bulls and goats, but instead he wanted a human sacrifice, you can understand why they are not going to respond to you and accept that. If we cannot minster the Gospel of Grace and the love of God for all people to everyone, everywhere in the world, then it is of no value. Those who offered the sacrifices believed the gods they offered them to would bless them. God did not need the shedding of blood in order to bless man. Man needed the shedding of blood. The life of the flesh is in the blood; we needed him to give his life for man, and destroy the degenerate nature activity that was in man because of unbelief. Jesus drank that bitter cup (degenerate nature activity) and he died in spirit and body. When he died, everything that had traduced man from living as Spirit and as Son of God was destroyed, melted away and brought it to not through His death. (7) When Jesus gave his live for and as man, it revealed the heart, nature, and love of our Father Creator towards mankind. Furthermore, he revealed the oneness that we always possessed and never lost. When Adam and Eve listened to a thought in the sense realm, which caused them to doubt and then decided for themselves that they had done something so bad that they lost (naked) the life of God they possessed. THIS DID NOT CHANGED GODS’ MIND about mankind. Our Father was not one bit nervous or caught off guard with what Adam and Eve did. In a later chapter, we will discuss the scripture that says, “A body thou has prepared for me.” The preincarnate Christ was speaking through the writer of Psalm 50, when he said, “Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not…” He said, “I’m not interested in that, I hate that, and I never wanted that.” I want to paraphrase verse seven. “Then said I, here I am, it is written about me in the volume of the book or in the scroll. I have come to do your will my God.” The two statements “a body you have prepared for me”, and “I have come to do your will” are connected. So first, he said, God never wanted the sacrifices and offerings. Even when they offered them according to the Law, he had the nerve to say that. None of those laws were what Father God wanted. What many do not understand is, Moses gave the Law. Grace and Truth came by Jesus Christ. Moses gave the Law, and God went along with that. The children of Israel should have said, “We cannot do those things,” at the time when Moses presented them with these laws. However, instead they said, “We will do it.” Consequently, they failed repeatedly. There have been never ending discussions about Sodom and Gomorrah, about how Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, about Lot’s wife who turned into a pillar of salt, and also about other Old Testament pictures. We truly believe that those people created those situations themselves. Later in our book, we will see where Sodom and Gomorrah had nothing to do homosexuality. Even the flood of Noah was not a product of God. Everything that looked like judgment from God was instead a product of the full dominion and creative ability that God had given to man. In truth, since man was to rule and reign over the planet and the inhabitants thereof, God’s involvement was limited to providing wisdom and knowledge to those who would harken to God’s Voice within. The many religious thoughts picture our Father Creator as a Doctor Jackal and Mr. Hide. Man, who receives knowledge from the five-sense realm, teaches that God brought that entire calamity on people, when in fact; they created those situations because of fear and unbelief. Their failure to put faith in the Operation of God (his hands) (8) produces the opposite of life and life more abundantly; even in the age in which we live. In our age, when things such as the attack on 9-11, an earthquake, or an act of terrorism takes place, the biggest thing you hear from CNN News and the Preachers of the world’s religious systems, is that they claim it was “the judgment of God.” In fact, Insurance policies include disclaimers, which do not include “acts of God.” Those things are not created by God. They are created and allowed by man whose breath (understanding and knowledge) comes from their nostrils (five-sense realm). None of it is because of perceived wickedness (rest-less), but because of unbelief, and a sense of separation from God. It is the result of not walking in the obedience and belief in God, by not believing what he did, and by not seeing what he saw through the death, burial and resurrection. Mankind creates these things. Until the Community of Believers see and believe these Truths, man will continue to struggle with the planet be out of order, rather than functioning in Divine order. If a person does not see and believe the Truth, and does not live out of the “Way, Truth and Life” way of life, then they will be out of line with the Truthful and Living Word. 1 John 2:8 Again, an authoritative prescription I describe unto you to enjoin in a position of rest, which thing is true in myself and in you: because the obscurity and shadow is past, and the truthful light now appears in us. RERichmond MHPV® If a supposedly True word is spoken, and that word does not produce an awakening in those who hear it, then we can say that word is untruthful. The word “true” used in First John 2, is the Greek word alethes (al-ay-thace'); truthful (as not concealing): It would then be safe to say, “An untruthful word spoken conceals the Truth.” Let us see further in verse nine and ten. Hebrew 10:9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. What “will” is he talking about? It was the “will” that he came into the world to do. “By the which will, WE are sanctified.” By that same will, we are made whole through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ, once and for ALL. This is saying that when Jesus went to the cross of Calvary, he was revealing exactly what Hebrews 10 states, being the will of our Father that we are sanctified, and we are one as He is one. Jesus came to reveal the will of the Father (same as verse 7). It has to do with “us” not God. In this verse, the body prepared for Jesus the sacrifice. Conversely, it is not a sacrifice in the same order as the bloody cultic sacrifices offered during the Old Covenant age. Those sacrifices were offered to appease what they thought to be an angry God, and try to get God to bless them after they offered “their” sacrifice unto God, and to try to get God to have a change of mind about them. This is the reason why they offered bloody sacrifices under the Old Covenant. They thought God was angry, and they were trying to appease their perception of the God they served. If one can see the difference between the perception of “man whose breath is in his nostrils” and the Truth, then the Truth will go a long way in making that person free to fully know and be aware of our Father Creator. They will awaken to the fact that, “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” In our understanding of “once for all,” we come to know that we were never separate, God was never angry, and it was done once and for all; no one was left out, past, present or future. The result of what Father God did in Jesus Christ went all the way back to the first man Adam. He “undid” everything that was out of order as a result of a false perception. We came out of our mother’s womb sanctified (pure, holy and sacred), and the same is true of all people who have ever been born since the first man Adam. They problem is, they have the wrong perception, and have been taught inaccurately. Father God said, “Who told you that you were naked (not whole)? Who told you, you are un-holy?” He then sent his Son as the sacrifice, to reveal what was in the Father’s mind about man’s sanctification, pureness, holiness and sacredness. When Jesus, as humanity, went to the cross and shed his blood, His purpose was to reveal to mankind the heart and will of the Father. It was not to change God’s mind concerning man, but to reveal to mankind the unchanging mind and heart of God. It was not to re-unite God with man, but to show man that he always has been, and will always be, united with God. That is what our Father Creator revealed to the Apostle Paul for the Hebrew Community of Believers back then, and for all mankind, age, after age, world without end. By God’s own will, He cleansed all people from an illegal degenerate nature activity “once and for all” by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ. What Jesus accomplished was not to offer something that finally caused God to accept us. No, he offered something to us, to cause us to finally accept the fact that God has never left man, nor has He ever been separated from man. Man partook of the knowledge of good and evil, and began to live out of a dualistic awareness, which produced a false awareness. “As a man thinks in his heart (conscious awareness), so is his realization” whether it be true or not. Beloved, we all have the mind of Christ. The mind of Christ is a powerful thing. It will produce after any seed of thought you sow into it. So in many cases, man acts on and lives as though we are in the first man of disobedience, Adam, or as it is taught today, “that we are just a sinner saved by grace.” God prepared the body of Jesus Christ to reveal the Divine purpose. Man has always been holy, pure, sacred and righteous. What did Jesus do? He identified with the consequential state of man as a result of believing they “were naked,” and became all of what Adam became. As Humankind’s Federal Head, Jesus took into himself, every drop of the degenerate nature activity produced by man believing the great lie – “I was naked,” and he destroyed it all. When Jesus died as every man, He made every form and sense of lack in the spiritual, mental, physical, social and financial realm, void and non-existent. Jesus, in the death estate of humankind, said, “Why hast thou forsaken me.” He was simply identifying with the confusion of mankind as he experienced all that took place in his passion. God never did forsake anyone; God our Father Creator was in Jesus reconciling the world, trying to awaken the people and let them know that God never hated them, that He always loved them, and that they are one as Father is one. This truth has never, and will never change. There you have the purpose of God preparing the body of the Lord Jesus Christ as the sacrifice. It is further important to see that He set aside the first, (that old sacrificial system) in order to establish the second (New Covenant), which was the will of God and not the perception and will of man whose understanding is take from the five-sense realm. He disengaged the will of God from a system of violent sacrifices, to show man that those things never were the will of God. There never was any anger from God towards us, and we have never been separate from God our Father. As we continue in our study of Penal Substitutionary Atonement, please keep this in mind: It teaches that the blood sacrifice was offered to atone on behalf of man toward God, because it assumed God was angry and separate from man. The truth of the matter is, man is the one who experienced the sense of separation. Therefore, that sense of separation unacceptably affected humankind’s life. It was the experience that man had, and continues to experience today. In this chapter, we are laying a foundation of what will be in the subsequent chapters. We believe the readers of this book will experience amazement by what is unveiled, and will be prayerfully happy to receive a level of truth that makes them free. There is no shortage of books that teach the same things taught year after year, which bring no help to people. Most of them are physco-babble books, meaning they are self-help books from the sense realm – man’s good ideas and worldly concepts. The Word is going to be unveiled in a way that most people have never seen. Some might say, “Well what is that going to do for me?” It will do a whole lot for your experience. When a person really gets gripped with the understanding that neither they, nor anyone else were ever separate from Father God, that true will reshape their life. John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. What, or better said, who is the grace that came by Jesus Christ? Grace is a person and the person is our Lord Jesus Christ. The Father revealed what his nature always was through Jesus. Grace was a man, and is in man today. The religious systems of this earth, have a mistaken idea that our Father Creator is an angry, violent God. God finally said, “This is not cutting it anymore.” If fact in Isaiah chapter thirty-five the Word does not really say, “God saw the travail of Jesus’ soul and was satisfied.” He really said, “God saw the travail (toil, worry, labor, sorrow) of man’s soul (man of Adam was a living soul), and had enough and was weary of it. Consequently, he did something to reveal to man the truth of how it had been since the foundation of the world. He finally said, “These animal sacrifices are not cutting it anymore.” God was trying to get the people away from the human sacrifices, away from burning their children, and away from the animal sacrifices, which they thought God wanted. Father God always meets people where they are, but his desire was to get man to the point in Hebrews 10, “A body hast thou prepared me.” The vital point the reader needs to awaken to, before he or she goes further in this book, is that our Father Creator did not need any sacrifice, even the sacrifice of Jesus’ body. Just as he did not need the Old Testament sacrifice, God did not need the sacrifice of the blood of Jesus Christ. Man is the one who needed to see the Father revealed through Jesus Christ as he experienced his Passion. Man needed to have sin removed from his consciousness. The death, burial and resurrection, is what the Bible calls, “The love of Christ.” [Romans 8:35 “Who shall be able to separate us from the love of Christ?” Second Corinthians 5:14 “For the love us Christ constrains us…” Ephesians 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge…”] The “grace” of Jesus Christ is the same thing; it is the Gospel – He is grace. We find the word ‘grace’ one hundred seventy times in the Bible. There are only two Greek meanings to the Word, and both contain the word ‘favor’. Favor means image. Once one awakens to the truth of the Grace of Jesus Christ, they will awaken to the fact that they are the image of Father God, and have never not been the image of our Creator. In the doctrine we used to believe, we thought Adam “fell from the grace of God”, and he did not reproduce in God’s image, but he did. He was not naked (void of God), nor were any of his offspring. Man back then, and now, only possess false images of themselves and others. Mankind never needed to be “fixed”. We only need to bring our awareness into Divine Alignment. Therefore, we can assuredly say, “No one can fall from the grace of God,” or as the Apostle Paul wrote, “No-thing can separate you from the love of God, - Nothing!” In past and present times man has needed the true character, nature and attributes of our Father revealed. That is exactly what the Father did. In Jesus’ virgin birth, his life, his ministry, all the times when he healed and brought people back to their right mind, he was revealing the will and the heart of the Father. In his entire earth-walk, he continually revealed the heart of the Father. Jesus treaded about on this planet, in full awareness that he and the Father were always one; never separate, and God would say that to anyone who would listen. He never experienced anger toward anyone and no one has ever been separate from him. People in the Old Testament offered sacrifices and prayed to false gods in order to obtain help from them. God replied to that in Deuteronomy 32. The following is God’s reproof and question to them. “And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted, which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? Let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.” Deuteronomy 32:37-38 They offered animal and human sacrifices, hoping the false gods would bless them. Father brings that belief to accountability; “Where are your false gods?” “If you think those gods are receiving your sacrifices, let them rise up and protect you and bring help to you.” In a Psalm of A’-saph, Psalm 50, God told the children of Israel he would not reprove them for the sacrifices and burnt offerings they continually offered to him. Let us read from this Psalm and we will show you the fact that Father God never wanted the sacrifices of man. Psalm 50:7 “Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God. 8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me. 9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds. 10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.” He was saying, “I speak your language and I will met you at the level where you are. If you want to offer an offering to me, and you think it will do you good to offer the blood of bulls and goats, have at it.” They offered human sacrifices and then Moses started the law of animal sacrifices. Father God was abiding his time until Hebrews chapter 10, “A body has Thou prepared for me.” Jesus became the sacrifice for man, but not to appease an angry God. Jesus was the first sacrifice that was not for a God. He said, “I have no need of a bull from your stall or goats from your pen; thanks though for the offering. I know you did it out of a good heart and you think it is worship; but that is not what I desire or require.” In the faith realm movement, we would read Psalm 50:10, “For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills,” and think God would give us anything we wanted if we gave to him. We have said, “God owns all the gold and silver in the earth”, and yet we think he cannot give or do something for us. That makes sense in the “sensory” understanding. He is saying, “If I were into killing animals and drinking their blood, all the cattle on the earth are mine, I could eat one anytime I want. If I was hungry or thirsty, I would not tell you to provide drink or meat for me. I do not need you to give me anything. I already own everything” Psalm 50:11 “I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. 12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof. 13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? 14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High: 15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. 16 But unto the wicked (rest-less) God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? 17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee. 18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. 19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. 20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son. 21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.” KJV [Italics mine] What the children of Israel were doing is, they were behaving exactly like the Pagan nations. They thought that as long as there was blood on the Altar, they could treat their family and neighbor any way they wanted. “As long as we offered a sacrifice, everything will be just fine.” The proof of your true heart is how you are treating your family, friends and others; that is what interests our Father. Jesus came to reveal the heart of the Father. First, he wanted us to see that we were never separate from him. Secondly, he wanted us to see that the real sacrifice is laying your life down for your brethren. The largest way we can lay down our life for our brethren, is to look through the stuff in the outer realm, and see them complete, whole and full of the glory of God. He said to the children of Israel, and to us, “I do not want your blood, your sacrifice, your money or anything else you give to appease me. I only want you to treat people right, and life out of my life and nature.” He is not after any sacrifice or offering; he only allowed them to do that because that was where they were in their understanding, and until they grew in the understanding that they never were separate from God. He said, “What good are your sacrifices unto me? I am fed up with the burnt offerings of Rams and the fat of the beasts. I delight not in the blood of bullocks and the lambs or she goats.” Does that sound like God wanted these sacrifices, or that he had some sort of appeasement that needed to be satisfied? Absolutely not! Did those sacrifices make them blessed? Absolutely not! He said, “I’m full of it!” They would say, “But Moses’ Law prescribed it.” Still he said, “I’m full of it! I did not need them and I never wanted them.” We can say the same thing concerning the sacrifice of Jesus; Father God did not need it; man needed it. What is the context of what God said in Isaiah fifty? We can find the answer in Isaiah chapter one. Isaiah 1:11 “To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.” We find the context of all that in verse sixteen. Isaiah1:16 “Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil (restlessness) of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; 17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.” KJV [Italics mine] He is saying, “I just want you to learn the correct way to treat people. No matter how many sacrifices you offer me, I want you to learn how to treat people right.” When we are really in tune and instep with the fact that we never were never separated from him and he loved us first, and are “gripped” by that understanding, we will treat people right. We need to understand he first loved us, and allow the love of the Father to flood our conscious awareness. When we hear out of that revelation, we can go forth and naturally love people the way we should love them, and treating people right will not be an effort, it will be our nature. We find an interesting exhortation in Isaiah 1:10 “Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.” Whom is he talking to there? He is talking to Israel and he calls the leaders Sodom and Gomorrah. Why would he call them that? When we think of Sodom and Gomorrah, right away, we think of Homosexuals and how, “God burned them all because there were men with men and women with women.” We believe God rained down fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorrah. God did not destroy the people of Sodom and Gomorrah; they destroyed themselves because of their own vanity. Again, to whom did God give dominion? He gave dominion to man. He told Adam, “You have dominion; you subdue and multiply and so forth. An example would be we have dominion in our own home. We enjoy our home and we possess all that is in our home. He instructed man to enjoy the perfect environment where he created for us to dwell. He said the same thing to us through Jesus, and we continue to ask God to bless us and do things for us, and rescue us from the mess that goes on in the systems of “man who dwells in the sense realm, whose breath is in his nostrils.” We see things in a mess and rather than seeing the end form the beginning, which brings everything into Divine Alignment. We beg God to do something about it. Father God would say, “When are you going to call everything from the end to the beginning.” When the storms came up while Jesus was asleep in the ship, and Jesus spoke peace to the storm, we believe the disciples created the storm. How can we say this? Well, the first thing Jesus addressed was the disciple’s fear. If man is not scientifically controlling the weather patterns today, he certainly is by negativity and a sense of separation. God does not send earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, wild fires, terrorist attacks or destruction in any form. Who does that? Man does. Of course, we believe there were people acting out of a false nature, which is nothing more than missing the mark. More importantly, we know that missing the mark is not the issue. Jesus Christ and Christ our Life is the issue. What we see in the sensory awareness realm is not the issue. In the New Covenant, there is no such thing as sin (missing the mark). Yes, there are consequences to one’s actions. Does God see it as something that separates a person from His love or His image? No, he does not. If one goes out and lives a false life of immorality, drives drunk or on drugs, robs a bank, commit immoral sexual acts, has affairs and the like, there will be consequences to those action, but these things are not judgment or punishment from Father God. One of the biggest consequences the offender will experience is to believe the lie that they are, separated from God because of their actions, and consequently experience the sense of separation from God, and a sense of lack in their life. As a man thinks in his heart, so is his experience. We must realize when there is something out of order in the realm of appearance; it is because there is something out of order in one’s sensory awareness. Jesus said it plainly; “It is not that which is outward that defiles and taints a man, it is that which is within.” Why was Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed? We discover the answer in Ezekiel 16:49-50. “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw.” What he was really saying is, the real condition and reason Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed was because of what was in their conscious awareness. He said the same thing here about what they did not do, that he did back in Psalms about the sacrifices and offerings; I do not want that; I want you to learn how to treat people. Similar to what Isaiah said, what the Psalmist said, and what Ezekiel said, “The mark missing (sin) of Sodom and Gomorrah was not the detestable things we would think of that people do in the outward realm. What brought consequences was the thing that was going on in their conscious awareness; the pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: Therefore, they created their own situation of destruction. We know as we read the various versions of the Bible, it sounds like God did these acts of destruction. That is not true. It is an antithesis, meaning man’s ways became the opposite of Father God’s intention; they went against his desires, thoughts and intention for them. God, through Isaiah’s writings, said, “I formed the light and create the darkness.” That is an antithesis. God did not create the darkness; there is no darkness. There is only light in our Creator. Man took the light and turned it into corruptness and darkness; that is an antithesis. This is exactly what we see in various texts of Scripture, which we are gleaning. The real meaning of the words “perish” and “unsaved” is that one is not walking in an awareness or realization of his or her oneness with Father God. They separate themselves from the experience of the Life of God within. All we need is to redefine the words and beliefs that we have had for far too long. The word “perish” and “unsaved” speak of a person who is not experiencing the Abundant Life that Jesus provide when he went to the cross. In the Hebrew, the word that is used most for the word “perish” is ‘abad’, meaning to wander away and lose oneself. In the New Testament Greek it is olethros, meaning to ruin, and the oligopistos, meaning to lack confidence (in Christ who dwells in you), and of having little faith. These meanings are all the result of living with a false identity, misconceptions, and wrong perceptions. Amos 5:21 “I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies. 22 Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts. God just let them do what they wanted to do because he met them on their level. However, he wanted to bring them to the place to where they were no longer offering human sacrifices, and then they came to where they were offering animal sacrifices, and he allowed that, but it was not his desire nor the ultimate for man. 23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols (foolishness). 24 But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.” The people were missing the whole point, and we believe people are doing the same thing in the religious melodies and foolishness of what they do to “please God.” As long as the people did something that had to do with blood, they thought they were appeasing God. In like manner, the many religions of this age push forth a message to the people that they must do something to please their God, or do something to become more like God. They teach that is the only way to get more from God. No, Jesus said he was the way, truth and life. The entire thing God was and is after is that man would learn how to respect and treat people with love and to minister to the poor and needy by showing them who they are in Christ Jesus. It is not always clothing or giving money. We need to teach them who they are, and help them learn how to live out of their Holy Spirit. We are very much involved in giving to the poor and needy – we do it all over this planet. People have a desperate need to know who they are as inChristed Sons of God. Now, let us revisit Hebrews chapter ten to close out this chapter. “In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither had pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;” When the children of Israel were at the height of their offerings of the blood of bulls, and goats and other animals, one of David’s choir leaders and writer of Psalm 50, had the audacity to say, “God did not want that, he hates it and he is full of it.” We pointed out in Isiah 53, that God was not satisfied with man (living souls), who were travailing and suffering – he had his fill of it, which is what the correct wording was, rather than “satisfied.” We thought God wanted man to suffer, when that idea was nonexistent in his mind. God was meeting mankind at their own level, until, in the fullness of time, Jesus Christ would be brought forth, born of a Virgin, and then God would reconcile the world through him. Nonetheless, it had nothing to do with appeasing God or satisfy his perceived anger. It all had to do with Jesus revealing the true character, attributes, nature and life of the Father to man. God was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world. He was in Christ Jesus, revealing his heart to people who thought they were separate from the Father. Just like what God told Adam, “Who told you that you were separate from me?” “You never were, nor could you ever be.” Likewise, we must make it clear to all people that what they think in their conscious awareness, so it will be in their experience. Therefore, because men believed they were in Adam, they acted out of that in their experience. That is why Jesus Christ came to reveal that we never were separate from God, and that God was never angry with man. Now, Hebrew verse 9, “Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” What was the “first” thing that was taken? It was the sacrifices and blood they offered during the Old Covenant as the result of their false perception of needing to appease an angry God. By establishing the second, he is uncoupling the first from the second. He is saying the second has nothing in similarity to the first in the old, where they shed the blood of bulls and goats. They thought they were appeasing an angry God, and getting God to bless them because of all of the sacrifices they offered. Here he is saying, this second has no relationship whatsoever with the first. Jesus did not go to the cross to appease God or to give God something so he would no longer by angry with man. God never needed appeasement, and never was angry. The only need is for the perfect sacrifice to go to the cross to reveal what was true all along. The problem is we simply did not know the truth. Yes, Jesus became the Federal Head mark-misser and identified with humanity’s confusion. He identified with man’s erroneous thinking while he was in his confused state. He became human by taking into himself the false degenerate nature. He identified with confusion and a sense of separation, and man’s false concept in thinking God was a vengeful God. A great picture of this would be in the prodigal son. The Father never separated himself from the son. The son left him, but he was still the son after he left. Inwardly, the father never separated from the son. The son separated himself from his source, the father, and wanted to go do it on his own. The father always inwardly stayed connected to the son. Matthew the Disciple of Jesus possessed an understanding of Jesus’ work being the need of man, and not the need of our Father. He wrote in verse twenty-eight of the twentieth chapter of his book, “Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for all” (not many). [Italics mine] He gave his life to man and in doing so he revealed the love of the Father that we always had. His love never left. Mark, anther Disciple of Jesus possessed this same understanding. He wrote in his book, chapter ten verse forty-five, “For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for all (not many).” In the first letter from the Apostle Paul to Timothy, he wrote, speaking of Jesus, “Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” [1 Timothy 2:6] We must know Jesus did not give his life to appease God; he gave his life to us. In like manner, there is no need for us to give our life to appease God, we give our life, to love and be a blessing to our brethren. “The life of the flesh is in the blood.” God did not need the blood. Some will say, “The scripture says, without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin.” Yes, but God did not need that, man needed that. Because of man’s false perception of being void of God’s life, they created into themselves an illegal degenerate nature activity. Life is in the blood, and when a person is sick or diseased, whatever they created in themselves will show up in their blood. When one presents their self to a doctor with symptoms of disease, the first thing the doctor wants to do is take blood or take an X-ray because they want to see what is going on inside. Jesus took into himself (the bitter cup) every bit of what hindered man, and in his death, one hundred percent of it died in him. The only reason there is a sense today of lack in any area of life is because, as Paul wrote, we do not know who we are. The majority of people do not know whom they are, and have never “dissected” in understanding of the Life of Christ within them. Consequently, “For this cause, all experience weakness, sickness and die needlessly. [First Corinthians 11:30] The majority of the community of Believers in Christ, which we call “the church”, continues to believe in Penal Substitutionary Atonement. However, we believe that is changing. By redefining the cross and our belief systems, we are just getting the priorities in order. It produces a great paradigm shift in one’s understanding when they realize that Father God was never mad at them, not even for a moment. The problem is that people “felt” God was made at them, and that problem comes from people whose understanding comes from sensory awareness (2) and not from Spirit consciousness. For the majority of their life, they walk by sight and feelings, rather than by faith and knowing the Truth. The Scripture states that, “Without faith in what Jesus did, one cannot agree with God.” This is not referring to faith in what a person can “get” God/Jesus to do. Recently a person posted on Face Book, “The cross of Calvary did nothing to us or for us.” Well, it did nothing for God, but it sure did something to and for man where we are concerned. When we believe this and see that he gave his life to reveal the heart of the Father, and we see that we were never separate from our Father, it will change everything. Father God is nothing except love and nothing can come from our Father Creator except love. We needed the heart of the Father, revealed to us. We need to be forever hearing what God said to Adam when Adam partook and descended down into a lower realm awareness and though he was naked (void of God Life) Whenever we hear thing that are contrary to the Truth of the Gospel, we need to say, “Who told me that?’ Sadly, not enough people have heard the “truthful Gospel,” but they will. God did not punish Adam; Adam experienced the consequence of his wrong choice. We have more to do and more to say in every instance and matter in our life, than what we realize. Why? Because we possess full dominion in our life and in this earth. We are the world changers if we will declare the end from the beginning. In spite of appearances, we must stand still and know the entire earth is full of God’s life, light and glory. When we really get down to it, nothing needs to change; it only needs to be whom it already is. How can we become what we be already? You cannot change and become what you already be. This will take place when people walk in and out of everything we are created to be. We are seeing clearer and clearer. We are Father God in the earth, and the Truthful Light of the world, and we desire to speak the truth and nothing but the truth. ORDER THE BOOK - Volume 1
