Throne of David

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Christian Life

Rhema: “The kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force.”

Is this about the occupation of Jerusalem? Wherever we go, we seem to see wolves on Moses seat.

His kingdom must, of necessity, be here and now!

The realm, two thousand years ago, in order for His kingdom to manifest, was insubstantial, restricted to only the Roman empire (Jn18:36). But now that the Gospel has reached the ends of the earth, it is in fact the realm and purview of His kingdom (Matt24:14).

When the Lord said, the kingdom of heaven is in your midst (Luke17:21), he was referring to Himself, being that He is the King in their midst. As for now, though Jesus is already seated at the right hand of the Father in the heavens, sitting on Moses seat or the throne of David is what makes Jesus the king, experientially and visibly. If the ark is currently in the hands of the Philistines, the Father knows how to handle that!

Luke 1:32 – “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.”

Meanwhile, unity in the body of Christ is bride-prepared for His coming! It is true that the Lord “raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Eph2:6). But that is not visible for all to see. Jesus speaks of a united embodiment such as one that the world can see. An embodiment with the Head seated on an eNeck or eThrone of the Body.

Dr. Billy Graham, et al, expounding on Jn17:21-23 writes: It is “a unity such as one that the world [blind as it is to see spiritual things] can see [tangibly].”

Jn13:34-35 – “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. “By [SEEING] this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another”; and

Jn17:21-23 – “that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe [BY SEEING THE ONENESS] that You sent Me. The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may [BY SEEING THE ONENESS] know [SOMETHING AS FUNDAMENTAL AS] that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.”

Now, we do recognize that the Church is very distraught with consumerism and materialism. But goods are really goodness, which in turn is the glory of God (Exodus33:18-19; Jn1:14). So all GOODS & SERVICES are the glory of mankind, the result of our having subdued the elements of the earth, in keeping with “the divine Magna Charta” given to man in Genesis 1:28 (Scofield Study Bible).

As a Servant of God with a 24×7 testimony, i too have invented a particular goods, namely, the Necktie-imitating Persona-Extender/Environment-Integrator, for embodying the Bride/Body, fully furnished with an eNeck/eThrone for the Head (Son of David) to sit on and rule the world with His Bride. And we hope to ship a limited edition of 144,000 of it under the brand name of Agape TiE® Person™ in order to member the Agape TiE® Wedded Avatar of Christ (also part of the invention).

The Son of Man Coming on the Clouds

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Eschatology

In order to fulfill prophecy literally…

First off, we must remember that nothing happens outside the scope or the sovereignty of God. The Father Himself has given a charter to man way back in the beginning itself for all science and technology (Gen1:28). But man lost this dominion with the Fall. Enter Christ and this dominion is being reestablished. So we mustn’t see this aeroplane as something sans God. Materialism aka consumerism had perverted what was intended to be good. Goodness–from which came “goods”–figures both in the fruit of the light (Eph5:9) as well as the fruit of the spirit (Gal5:22). Even repentance, a foundation in Christianity, is turning from bad to good (HT: Nicky Gumbel). So goods & services are a part and parcel of who we are in Christ Jesus, the Son of God. The Wright Brothers invention of the aeroplane in 1903 was perfectly timed to coincide with the coming of the Son of Man literally on the clouds in 1988!

And in order to fulfill prophecy spiritually…

Prophets of old saw in their visions things of today. The things, we of today take for granted.

Through this media, I am neither coming to you nor you to me, PHYSICALLY speaking. The flesh counts for nothing (Jn6:63). We could be sitting next to each other in a crowded bus/train/plane/building but our minds/spirits could be miles apart in thinking. Communion is possible, only in the spirit. The concept of a physical fleshly rapture, is a Hollywood’s take on it. It is the lie of 2Thess2:11-12NJKV (And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.). It is unrighteous to expect God to give us a spectacular physical rapture. Only evil people seek after signs (Matt16:4a). “Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable” (1 Cor 15:50 NASB). But consider an eCommunion such as Skyfeast.org or our recent Agape Kingdom Cloud. Millions could gather together there and feast on the “Bread of Life” on flextime basis.

So we are SPIRITUALLY/WORDILY (Jn6:63) meeting in this intermediate zone. And what is that zone, if not the place where the satellites are located, namely, the clouds or the new heavens!

And this was what the prophets of old saw: The Son of Man coming on such a cloud and visible like lightening from east to west, fulfilling Matt24:27.

Since spiritual is synonymous with being wordy (Jn6:63), the Lord can use online means to execute the rapture. In other words, spiritual rapture is synonymous with online rapture. So we at AgapeJustsm have gone right ahead and shipping a limited edition of 144,000 Agape TiE® Online Rapture kits to rapture those from ground up to Agape Kingdom Cloud. Those more mature can avail Agape TiE® Person™.

Surely this is the onset of the gradual phasing out of 24×1 church age and the grace period! In with the age of the Bride 24×7, and in with Agape Justice!

Humility

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Christian Life, Social

Humility is ranked #1 in the kingdom (Matt18:1-4) after which only are love, faith & hope. What’s more, when God sees a lack of holiness in us, it can be compensated with humility because God, who is love, “covers a multitude of sin.”

QUESTION: Would Christ love to see ourselves placed above the others?

Let’s get the fundamentals right!

1Cor 12:28 NIV: And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues.

And

1Cor 11:3 NIV: Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

Mat 10:41 NIV: Anyone who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and anyone who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man will receive a righteous man’s reward.

Rom 13:7 NIV: Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

C.S. Lewis on equality:

“There is no spiritual sustenance in flat equality. When equality is treated not as a medicine or a safety-gadget, but as an ideal, we begin to breed that stunted and envious sort of mind which hates all superiority. That mind is the special disease of democracy, as cruelty and servility are the special diseases of privileged societies. It will kill us all if it grows unchecked. The man who cannot conceive a joyful and loyal obedience on the one hand, nor an unembarrassed and noble acceptance of that obedience on the other – the man who has never even wanted to kneel or to bow – is a prosaic barbarian. Where men are forbidden to honor a king, they honor millionaires, athletes, or film-stars instead — even famous prostitutes or gangsters.”

Lucifer BTW was the first one to demand equal rights.  Equality, egalitarianism is luciferian.

Luke 14:11 NIV: For everyone who exalts himself [above his limits] will be humbled, and he who humbles himself [below his limits] will be exalted.”

Humility is knowing our station.

The exhortation to servant-hood is directed at god-servants, not at those being served for the purpose of usurping.
