THE CRUCIFIED ONE IN THE MIDST OF GOD’S KINGDOM

Artist Unknown

What does it mean to be “in the midst” of God’s Kingdom?

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is a crucified Savior who has made a way for our deliverance, healing and salvation. “There they crucified Him, and with Him two other men, one on either side, and Jesus in between [in the midst KJV]” (John 19:18 NASB).

The Greek words clarifying what “crucified” means in First Corinthians 2:2 NASB – “For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified” – are found in Strong’s NT:4717, NT:4716, and NT:2476. They tell us that to be CRUCIFIED means to be impaled on the cross, to extinguish selfishness, to expose to death (self-denial) through the foundation of the atonement of Christ. These definitions come from the Greek word histemi (prolonged form of stao), which adds the concepts: to stand, to abide, to appoint, to continue, to covenant, to establish, to hold up, to present, to set, etc.

If we are living IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom, we live a crucified life similar to the One seen hanging on a tree in the midst of two robbers. “And they put up over His head the accusation written against Him: THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. Then two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and another on the left” (Matthew 27:37-38 NKJV).

What was the mysterious message hanging above Yeshus’s head that made the chief priests, scribes, and elders mock Him? The Hebrews look at a sentence several ways to receive hidden messages from the Lord. One of the ways they do this is by looking at the first Hebrew letter in every Hebrew word in a sentence, phrase, or statement. John 19:19 says that the sign said: “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.” The first Hebrew letter for each word in this statement spelled out the Unspeakable Name of God Y-H-V-H. YOD (Y) is a picture of a hand. HEI (H) is a picture of an open door and is commonly translated “what comes forth.” And VAV is a picture of an ancient nail. When one puts the pictures of these Hebrew letters together, we receive the awesome message that hung over Yeshua on the Cross – “Salvation and deliverance will come by the nailed hand of God.” This is why the chief priests were upset and insisted: “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘He said, ‘I am the King of the Jews’” (John 19:21). The religious institution in Yeshua’s day were horrified when they comprehended this mysterious message that Pilate insisted would stand.

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom, the veil in God’s Temple was torn in two from heaven to earth (top down) at the moment of His crucifixion, so there is no more separation between God and man. Now, there is the potential for a glorious divine relationship. “And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst” (Luke 23:44-45 KJV). “And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. Then behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split” (Matthew 27:50-51 NKJV). “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation” (Ephesians 2:13-14 NKJV).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom, the veil is taken away, so we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of God. God’s people have the incredible promise that when we keep pressing in to become mature… to become just like Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ), we shall be completely and fully know just as we are known. “Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” (II Corinthians 3:16-18 NKJV). “But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known” (I Corinthians 13:10-12 NKJV).

“Then said Jesus unto His disciples, ‘If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me’” (Matthew 16:24 KJV).

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20 KJV).

Here’s to following Him all the way to fully know Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen!

Give em heaven!!!

THE LIVING CREATURES IN THE MIDST OF GOD’S KINGDOM

ART by Esther Eunjoo Jun at imagewave713.com

What does it mean to be “in the midst” of God’s Kingdom?

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom stands the Sacrificial Lamb of God in the midst of the Throne, which is in the midst of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the twenty-four elders. “And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth” (Revelation 5:6 NKJV).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the four living creatures of the Order of Melchizedek who are also called The Living Creature and/or The Cherubim. Notice that the spirit of the Living Creature in the wheels is what unifies the four living creatures in Ezekiel 1:19-20. And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also, out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. … And when the living creatures [plural] went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures [plural] were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up. Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature [singular] was in the wheels. When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature [singular] was in the wheels” (Ezekiel 1:4-5,19-21 KJV). Also notice that The Living Creature of Ezekiel 1 is also called The Cherubim in Ezekiel 10: This is the Living Creature that I saw under the God of Israel by the river of Chebar; and I knew that they were the Cherubim” (Ezekiel 10:20 KJV).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is a Throne where the living creatures worship the LORD God Almighty. The living creatures (i.e., The Living Creature or The Cherubim) have wings full of eyes both in Revelation 4 and Ezekiel 10, even though the number of wings differ for these living creatures. “And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say, ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.’ And when the living creatures give glory, honor, and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, to Him who lives forever and ever” (Revelation 4:8-9 NASB).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is El Shaddai – the Almighty – whom the living creatures give glory, honor, and thanks. The attributes of El Shaddai are: Almighty; All Powerful; All Sufficient One; Judge; the sweet omnipotence of love, sure and all-sufficient resource in time of need; power to fulfill every promise He has made to His people and perform every word He has spoken; bountiful; overrides nature to perform miracles and remove mountains; Giver and Pourer out of self-sacrificial love and blessing; Nurturer and Comforter that gives strength and quiets the restless. El Shaddai is called the Double-Breasted One who nourishes and strengthens. Fullness – in Him all fullness dwell and out of His constant fullness His own receives all things.

Let us all give glory, honor, and thanks to the One who was, who is and is to come – the Almighty!

Give em heaven!!!

THE LAMB & HIS BRIDE IN THE MIDST OF GOD’S KINGDOM

Artist Unknown

What does it mean to be in the midst of God’s Kingdom?

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. “The next day John sees Jesus coming unto him, and says, Behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). “Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst” (John 19:18).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the Lamb on the throne who is the Great Shepherd of our souls. “For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life” (Revelation 7:17).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the wife of the Lamb, His Bride. “Come, I shall show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb” (Revelation 21:9b).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the Bride of the Messiah who is the Dwelling Place of God. His Bride is His Temple that is made up of living, breathing stones, which are being built up into a spiritual house (1 Peter 2:5). “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God” (Revelation 21:1-3).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the Lamb and His Bride. “The marriage of the Lamb has come and His Bride has made herself ready. And it was given her to cloth herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen, is the righteous acts of the saints” (Revelation 19:7-8).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is a Bride who is spoken of as the holy city called the New Jerusalem. “And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband” (Revelation 21:2).

IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is the New Jerusalem. “The New Jerusalem has great high walls with twelve angels guarding the gates. On each of the twelve gates is one of the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each on of the gates was a single pearl” (Revelation 21:22a).

So, in the midst of God’s Kingdom is a throne where there is a Righteous King and His Righteous Queen (i.e., the Bride of Christ) where they rule and reign “in Christ” through love. The Messiah’s Bride is His cozy and comfy Dwelling Place where the Messiah feels at home. She is one of His most highly valued possession. That the commitment to being married to the King of Kings is not to be taken lightly is almost an understatement. The Messiah’s True Queen of Heaven most excellently represent the King, because it is clearly seen and understood that She is gloriously one with Him through holy matrimony. They are ooooooooonnnnnnneeeeee…

May you press into the Kingdom of God in your midst! May you press into your Beautiful Beloved Author, Creator, Lord, Savior and Friend!

Give em heaven!!!
