A Higher State
Matthew 6 is a cry, a plea that this tributary state of the Earth will conform to the Suzerain state of the heavenly realms:
“Our Father who is in heaven,
may your name be treated as holy.
10 May your kingdom come,
may your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And do not bring us into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
14 For if you forgive people their sins, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive people, neither will your Father forgive your sins.
The forgiving of one another is the requirement imposed on the earth as a law from heaven. The request to receive sustenance and increase to feed demonstrates the relationship of the inferior state of the tributary in the view of the superior suzerainty. The part on the temptation is pointing out that “we are not alone”. Be prepared for attacks and casualties from the adversaries.
The Lord’s prayer has been in circulation for 1,988 years and has been “prayed” or recited over billions and billions of times. Now, we have to question, if the message of this petition from the tributary state (earth) to the suzerain state (heaven) has been understood as the Holy Spirit illiminates it on the soul of a worshiper.
There is a recent (say 10 years) revival among Christendom about the quality of the walk with Christ, in particular to obeying God. It is not a new concept from the Gospel by any stretch. But because it is like an ignored instruction from the manual, the proponents gave it a new shine and elevate an item that has always been one of the requirements.
15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, in order that he may be with you forever;
Note, the Lord did not say: in order that he “will be” …
“May be” carries stipulations. In this offer, the stipulation is to love Him. For the one that loves Him, one keep His commandments.
This stipulaton alone is met with rebellion in the last 10 years from within the Christendom, which I illustrate here called the tributary state, as a temporary kingdom within the earthly kingdom. If you must inquire, the earthly was given to Adam. satanas stole it from him using the Bilaam method of temptation. So now, satanas still has possession of the earth kingdom. The title deed has been repossessed by Messiah upon His full redemption using His blood and life. He has opened all seven seals and the possession date is scheduled by the Father. Unless you are an LDS person, everybody knows that earth as we know it will not last “forever”. What is the use of inheriting something that will see its day as in 2 Peter 3:
5 For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that the heavens existed long ago and the earth held together out of water and through water by the word of God, 6 by means of which things the world that existed at that time was destroyed by being inundated with water. 7 But by the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly people.
Out of it comes two sides of a coin. You have those who deny obedience and raise the banner of (the fake) OSAS theory, and those who crash beyond the rails to the other extreme end of doing all laws and no love, such as the HRM movement. Both extreme ends of the last days movement prick at a weak chink in the Christian’s armor that has been going on for 50 years since AW Tozer wrote about Christian liberalism.
This last days movement seems to be a protest against, and is in defense of the sub-par status quo of the Apostate Church (the last age of the Church, as Laodicea in Revelation 3). However, both camps got it wrong when they focus on themselves. The OSAS person will only talk about themselves, how the Torah cannot touch them even if they commit all Ten Commandments (for instance) because “they are already saved from condemnation and judgment”. I have no idea if it came from a bible from Mars or Venus, such fallicy that will say something as lawless as that. At the other end of the spectrum, we have these HRM Her Royal Mystery (Babylon) devotees, who love to talk also about themselves and how they observe the Law without giving homage to the Giver of the Torah. To me they seem to be a new breed, mind you, they are Gentiles, who literally look at the letter of the Torah without the Spirit’s guidance in how Messiah fulfilled the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings (Matthew 5|17).
For instance, the Torah instructs the covenant people to circumcise the foreskin of the male as a “sign of the covenant” (which is just a sign) and to circumcise the heart, the command that must be exercised, in order to worship God freely. The circumcision of the flesh is only a sign of the real deal in the heart, when the Sword of the Holy Spirit does His work on the individual. HRM refuses to circumcise the heart. They habitually elevate the Torah above the Giver, for the most part of it that I have seen in the last ten years.
The real focus that we must come back to examine where the truth is goes back to the One who made the Covenants — Elohiym. Is Elohiym from the earth? No. Reference Genesis 1| 1 – 3 and 28 – 30.
Is Messiah from the earth?
No. Reference John 3|15 – 17 and 36.
The Father reigns in heaven. Rebels have no time. satanas was cast out.
The Son was dispatched from heaven to earth. He is preparing earth as a tributary state with limited self-rule because right now He is not come back yet.
Upon the Second Coming, the Son will come to take over the tributary state (earth) and reign in presence for 1,000 years as the Sovereign. All the laws that you know today will be enforced on earth after the repo.
