Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Galatians 6:7-8.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

I promised you eternal life before the world began and all My promises, as many and as magnificent as they be, are “YES” to you in Christ Jesus your Lord. In Him, through Him, and with Him you inherit them all legally and justly. And because of that, they will never be taken away from you. In Him, the best part is yours.

I give you eternal life in Jesus, and more precisely in His resurrection. Because He lives, you also will life forever. Because He took your sins, paid your debt to Me, and satisfied divine justice and the law of sin and death perfectly, you have eternal life with Me. The resurrection is for you and Jesus, who is the resurrection and the life, is My gift to you forever. In His resurrection I guarantee you eternal life with Me.

The resurrection is for you, but I want you to understand it is also for Me. It fulfills My desire to have you with Me forever as My very own family. I desire that all be saved and come to know the truth. I want you all to know Me and be in covenant with Me for eternity. And the life, death, and resurrection is the way I accomplished My heart’s desire perfectly. What Jesus did becomes before Me what you did, for He came to be you before Me. He was substituted in your place but accounted it to you in that your sentence of death is satisfied, done, and finished—He makes you complete before Me. For who He is and what He has done is accredited to you.

Please understand what I am saying, as He is so are you in this world—all He has done and accomplished I have credited to you, and now I have created you anew in Him, born again from My imperishable Word, so that His life is in you now as His body upon the earth and you are to continue to do the works He did as one with Him. You are uniquely you, but you are empowered with My own divine life through Him. Jesus likened it to branches on a vine drawing all goodness and life from the vine but bearing the fruit in its own unique way as a branch. And the branches that are more deeply attached and do not accept the pests and the blight are more fruitful than others. And those that stay in the sunlight and draw in the rain are more fruitful as well. Please think about what I am saying for your own life.

I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. John 15:5-8.

And the way I give you access to all Jesus is and has done for you as your substitute and identity (for you and as you before Me) is simply by faith, faith in the One I sent. And when you believe in Him, you believe in Me who sent Him.

And Jesus cried out and said, “He who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me.” John 12:44.

I sent My Word, who became flesh and dwelt among you, to heal you and deliver you from your destruction—from the pit where there is no hope of escape. I sent My Word, the imperishable seed of My Word, to plant in the earth to reap a harvest of souls by His death and resurrection.

And Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” John 12:23-24.

He was sent forth as My only begotten Son, but He returned to Me as the firstborn of many brethren.

In the appointed time on the calendar of religious feasts that I gave to Moses, the waving of the first sheaf on the day of First Fruits represented the whole harvest to come. And that is the day that I raised Jesus from the dead.

But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. 1 Corinthians 15:20.

The final ingathering of the harvest of those who have followed Christ will be on the Last Day when My Holy City, My Kingdom, comes down to tabernacle with you on the earth.

Also you shall observe the Feast of the Harvest of the first fruits of your labors from what you sow in the field; also the Feast of the Ingathering (Tabernacles) at the end of the year when you gather in the fruit of your labors from the field. Exodus 23:16.

He brought you all to Me.

For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in [h]Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. 1 Corinthians 15:21-24.

And you access and receive all this into your own life by faith in the Name of the One whom I sent to save you. And you are My witnesses, My Son’s body, to call in the harvest too.

Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:37-38.

When you are born again of the seed of My imperishable Word you become an imperishable seed as well so that when planted in death you are raised up in a harvest of eternal life. It does not remain just a seed but receives full body.

But someone will say, “How are the dead raised? And with what kind of body do they come?” You fool! That which you sow does not come to life unless it dies; and that which you sow, you do not sow the body which is to be, but a bare grain, perhaps of wheat or of something else. But God gives it a body just as He wished, and to each of the seeds a body of its own. 1 Corinthians 15:35-38.

Corruptible, perishable seed brings only death when planted, it cannot produce what is not in the seed. It cannot reap eternal life.

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Galatians 6:7-8.

You should not be living only for your flesh, that is, living by your feelings and emotions. Many do this and it ruins their lives. The flesh is going to die, temporal things are fleeting and they change, but the spiritual, which is not so readily discernible to worldly minds is forever.

Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: [i]immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, [j]factions, 21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 Now those who [k]belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also [l]walk by the Spirit. 26 Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another. Galatians 5:19-26.

The grave is not the end but only the beginning of something beyond all you can ask or imagine, for it has not so much as entered the mind of man what I have prepared for you who love Me. It is glorious beyond all your earthly mind can hold or your earthly body embrace.

And that is why flesh and blood cannot inherit My Kingdom but must be changed. In the mortal condition he was in, Moses could not see My face, My glory, in full view, or he would burst aside the bounds of mortal flesh and step over, as Enoch did, to My eternal glory. And that is why you must die to live.

Let us turn to the revelation I gave to My apostle Paul, but I give it to all who step aside with Me to take the journey of remembrance of what I have done for you in My Son. It so overwhelmed Paul with My love as revealed in Christ Jesus that his heart was always burning within him with the flame of My divine love. And it filled him with such peace that in every circumstance he was content, in fact, he was overflowing with joy!

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Galatians 2:20.

Many people act like their hopes are limited to this life only, and that is why so many get depressed and have no joy as they get older. They see their lives as soon ending and nothing accomplished of what they see as true worth. There was always more time to reach their dream or perfect place, when they were young, but suddenly as they are reaching their end they are facing death and believing they lost it all or even if they have amassed a lot that they will lose it all in death.

But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14.

Remember the repentant criminal on the Cross. With Jesus at your side, all is not lost, in fact all is gain. Your life here is fleeting compared to eternity. It is very important, however, what you do with your life here, but it is not the end. Your life here is a seed that falls into the earth and dies and produces a harvest of eternal life in the heavenly Kingdom. The most important thing you can do is make sure the right seed is planted in your heart.

Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. James 1:21.

This life can be beautiful if you live it according to My Word and you can be in close communion with Me constantly and have amazing adventures and do great works, miracles, signs and wonders, but compared to being with Me in the fullness of life eternal in My Kingdom, this life could be likened to your journey from slavery through the wilderness to the edge of the Promised Land, the Land flowing with abundance, no toil, and no pain or death. A land I promised you before time began. My Kingdom. It was prepared for you from the foundation of the world for you who love Me. And how do I know you love Me? You keep My Word. You obey. And that is why most of the Israelites I redeemed out of slavery never entered the Promised Land..

Then the King will say to those on His right, “Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” Matthew 25:34.

One serious act of disobedience in full knowledge of the consequences on Adam’s part brought condemnation and death to every man, for all descended from him, but one act of obedience brought justification and life, eternal life, to every man who will receive the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness I offer you through faith in that One perfect Man who came to save you. Just as you were born of the perishable seed of Adam, you must be born again of the imperishable seed of Christ, who is My Word.

For you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God. 1 Peter 1:23.

Everything in this world that is of this world is perishable and corrupted. Why? I had given Adam dominion over the world and all the works of My hands therein and when he sinned all creation went into corruption with him. But I gave you a lifeline to pull you out of the miry depths he had put you all into, My Word. For the things of this world perish, but My Word will never perish. It endures forever.

“All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower fades and falls off, but the Word of the LORD endures forever. And this is the Word which was preached to you.” 1 Peter 1:24-25; Isaiah 40:7-8.

And this is the Word of which you are born again unto eternal life. The sower sows the seed of My Word into your heart and you can reject it or grow it to harvest. The harvest of eternal life now and forever.

The resurrection of My Son not only shows you that you are released from your sins and your sentence of eternal death, but also that you, like Him, shall be clothed in a immortal, glorified body filled with light that can appear suddenly, come through closed doors, and move to different places in a mere breath.

I, John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and perseverance which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet, saying, “Write in a book what you see, and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.” Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands; and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like the Son of Man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash. His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire. His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters. In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength. Revelation 1:9-16.

And you shall be like Him for you shall see Him as He is.

See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. 1 John 3:1-3.

So let us talk about your resurrection for once you have believed in the good news of your salvation in Jesus, I seal you in Him with My Holy Spirit as a pledge that I will raise you up to be with Me forever, spirit and soul first for those who have already fallen asleep in Christ before His second coming, and then at His second coming when He catches up all believers, that is, the Church, His body with all its members, to Him in the clouds to be in My Kingdom forever.

Now, think about this, that which you sow does not come to life unless it dies; and that which you sow, you do not sow the body, which is to be, but a bare grain, perhaps of wheat or of something else that planted will grow into that.

I give every seed the plan in it to produce the body just as I designed and planned it to be, and to each of the seeds I give a body of its own. This is true of you, but also of every plant and animal there is. All I planned, but everything created was for your pleasure and provision. I created for six days and completed everything that is in the earth before I made mankind and set you in your home and gave you dominion over it.

If you read the beginning of the Bible in Genesis you will see I made all animals and creatures according to their kind, but I made you according to My likeness, My kind. All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another flesh of birds, and another of fish. There is no such thing as one created being evolving into a different one. Each is of its own kind and stays that way. You as well. You did not evolve from an animal or crawling creature, I made you in My image and according to My likeness and no other work of My hands is like Me. Evolution is evil, a mockery and imitation of My creation but cutting Me out, which was the sin of Adam, and do not think that you are meshing that diabolical theory with religion by calling it “intelligent design” either. Many theories may have a form of godliness, but they are not genuine if they do not line up with My Word, which is absolute truth. Be careful how you walk. Bad company corrupts good morals.

There are also heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is one, and the glory of the earthly is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown a perishable body, it is raised an imperishable body; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.

You have so much to look forward to, you should never feel limited or hopeless. Just make sure you are planting good seed in your heart and cultivating it every moment of the day. Hold fast to what you have with gratitude, and I will multiply it. I told Abraham, even in his elder years, I would increase him and bless him more and more. It is the same for you who I count as his descendants in Jesus.

There is a natural body, and there is also a spiritual body. As it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam, Jesus, became a life-giving spirit. However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual. The first man is from the earth, earthy; the second man is from heaven. As is the earthy, so also are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, so also are those who are heavenly. Now you have borne the image of the earthy, but in the time to come you will bear the image of the heavenly.

Jesus told you that the flesh is useless in obtaining eternal life, only the Spirit gives life. Flesh and blood, which is perishable, cannot inherit My Kingdom because the perishable cannot inherit the imperishable. It is beyond what your capacity, limited by the flesh can contain or obtain without being translated into the realm of light where all travels at a speed your earthly body cannot bear. Communication also is at a whole new level, revelation of massive amounts of material can be acquired and understood by you in the twinkling of My eye.

Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:52-57.

The passage from the mortal to the immortal is swift and sweet for all who are born again by the imperishable seed of My Word by receiving Jesus as your Lord no matter when they pass from death to life. Absent from the body you are present with Me. But the gift of your glorious body you will all receive on the same day when the trumpet blows and all are raised together in that glorious catching away of the Church, the Body and Bride of Christ. But even now, as that imperishable seed is beginning to put forth its shoots into your life you can walk free of sickness, pain, guilt, shame, blame, fear, anxiety, hatred, bitterness, lack, sin, and the evil that is rapidly increasing in the world. Evil is increasing, for the devil knows from the signs of the times that his remaining time as “god” of this world is short and the leasehold about to expire, so do not be intimidated by his tactics and attacks, for you have the victory already in Christ Jesus your Lord. In Him you have everything for life and godliness. In Him you have RESURRECTION POWER! And that is nothing less than eternal life that trumps sin and the grave.

For the sting of death is sin and the power of sin is the law of sin and death, but for those who are in Christ Jesus there is now no condemnation for the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has overcome the law of sin and death. He paid for your sentence with His blood, so that the avenger of blood cannot touch you. You have found your city of refuge. Remember: The LORD redeems the soul of His servants, and none of those who take refuge in Him will be condemned. Psalm 34:22. In Me you find your secret place, where all is love and grace, and the evil once cannot touch you. You are under grace and sin is no longer your master. Live pure. And you do that by living according to My Word. So treasure and store My Word in your heart and you are an imperishable seed ready for harvest of a hundredfold.

I love you. And that is what resurrection is all about. And that is what Communion is all about. And that is what the New and everlasting Covenant is about. My love for YOU.

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:58.
