“Heavenly Offspring from God’s Earthly Creation: How God Multiplies Himself”–Chapter 17 of the book YAH IS SAVIOR: THE ROAD TO IMMORTALITY

Chapter 17     Heavenly Offspring from His Earthly Creation

You believe that God created man and woman. You would not be reading this if you did not. But have you ever wondered why He created us in the first place? Why did He make us the way we are, making decisions, as it were, on matters of life and death, with the power to accept or reject our Maker and His plan for us. You have heard it said, “Why didn’t God just make us robots and spare us all the pain and misery brought on by our own doing?”

The key to unlock the answers to some of these questions comes in Yahshua’s reply to the Sadducees in Matthew 22:30. They did not believe in the resurrection and were trying to stump Him with a hypothetical story about seven brothers who had died in succession, each passing on the first brother’s barren wife to the next brother as each did in turn. They had all had her as a wife, but in the resurrection, whose wife would she be? It was a trick question, so the Master told them that it proved that they did not know the scriptures nor the power of the Creator.

The Sadducees presumed through their earthly thinking that if there were a resurrection, that humans would be mating and having children just like here on earth, for they said, “Whose wife would she be?” But he said in verse 30, “For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.” After man and woman are made immortal, they will be like the angels who do not marry nor mate. No reproduction will take place by the immortal ones. This takes place after “this mortal shall have put on immortality” (I Cor. 15). When this earthly body is “swallowed up of life,” when this earthly corruptible body of dust is changed into an incorruptible spiritual body, then at that time there will be no more reproducing.

“Marrying and giving in marriage” is synonymous with having children or reproducing. “Be fruitful, multiply, and replenish the earth,” is the command to the first earthy Adam. But the “last Adam is the Lord from heaven,” or the sons of God with their resurrected spiritual bodies. And they will not be reproducing or multiplying; they will be like the angels of heaven that way.

Reproducing heavenly offspring from His earthly creation

After the resurrection, some will be changed from mortal to immortal. We will not be of this earth anymore. This earthly body is a temporary housing for the faithful who will receive a spiritual body at that time. God, then, will have reproduced Himself !

We human beings are the only scriptural way that God can reproduce His spiritual body, and have heavenly offspring. He has to do it here on earth. How ironic! How it seems to be one way and it is really another. How it seems that we have our own little earthly life and we reproduce and take much satisfaction and joy in our children, and eventually we return to dust, and our children do the same, and theirs also, and very few human beings are remembered in history. And that is that. How it seems to be that way. But in reality, God is with great patience actually in the process of reproducing heavenly offspring out of His earthly creation!

How God Multiplies Himself

“Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone. But if it die, it brings forth much fruit.” John 12:24. Yahshua the Savior was the seed, the corn of wheat, that came to earth and died, that through His death much fruit will come forth; many spiritual sons and daughters will become like Him and achieve immortality.

Yahshua said that He was the first and the last, the beginning and the end. He created all things while He was in His original form, the pattern in whose image man was created. But just like the literal seed grain must die and thereby lose its identity and its initial life in order to bring forth much fruit, so did the Word, the Seed. The First, the Original Form, Yahshua, divested Himself of His celestial, spiritual body and poured His Essence into a word, into a sentence (“In the beginning was the Word”) that was to be carried and pronounced by one of His messengers into the ear of a maiden name Miriam (Mary) of Bethlehem. Because He was a Spirit Being and not material, the pre-existent Yahshua could pour Himself into a word (“The words I speak, they are spirit and they are life”). And that word, carried by the archangel Gabriel entered her ear and it took root in her heart and in her womb by faith, and she became with child of the Spirit. And He would grow up and eventually give His life for us that we might be His offspring—immortal heavenly children, made right here on earth by His resurrection.

“God’s Eternal Purpose Seen in Nature”–Chapter 16 of the Book YAH IS SAVIOR: THE ROAD TO IMMORTALITY

      Many people say that we cannot know what is in the Father’s heart; we cannot know His plan and purpose.  Ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature, namely, His eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. Rom.1:20.

     We look around to the things that have been made, and what do we see?  We see nature.  We see the grass grow, come to maturity, produce seed, and reproduce  itself.   We  see animals of all shapes and sizes—mammals, reptiles, insects, fish, et al—and we see them grow, come to maturity, produce seed and offspring and thereby reproduce themselves.  We see human beings grow up, come to maturity, and reproduce themselves.  It is built into every living thing; if it lives, it strives to  reproduce itself. 

     And every living thing reproduces another that very closely resembles itself.  Oak trees and their acorns produce oak saplings.  Basset hounds give birth to litters of long-eared pups, and humans give birth to humans.  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so…Let the waters bring forth abundantly.. Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. Gen.1:11, 20, 24.

     We can look at the creation and see what God is doing.  In nature everything is reproducing itself.  We can know what God is about, what His plan and purpose is by simply observing nature. The revelation is that God is reproducing Himself, too.  He has the same longing to reproduce Himself that all of his creation does.  He created the earth and every living thing in it to have strong instincts and desires to procreate.  Nature would mirror His desire to have offspring, just like Him.

    Reproducing Himself is the business He is about.  That is why He created the worlds, the heavens and earth and everything in them.  They are all just an environment for Him to reproduce Himself.  He is the Seed and each seed bears its own kind. 

He is also  the  Gardener  who sows Himself (the Seed/the Word) into the earth.  But it is a special earth that He is sowing the Seed/Word into. That special garden is the earthly human bodies who respond to His choosing them for this purpose.  The seed is the word of God. Lk. 8:11. The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63.

The Mind of Christ–What Are His Thoughts?

We are told to “let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus (Yahshua)” [1].  We are then to have His thoughts, to think the way He does, to meditate on subjects that fill His mind.

So what fills His mind?  What is He thinking about right now?

We get a thumbnail sketch of His thoughts in His model prayer for us, the so-called “Lord’s Prayer.”  In it Christ mentions the Father’s name, the Kingdom of God, His will to be done in earth, the spiritual bread, forgiveness, deliverance from evil, and a need to surrender to the Father’s majesty.

These subjects in Christ’s mind are vast “that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written” [2].  So I want to address just one aspect of one of them–the Kingdom of God.  

The “good news” is the “gospel of the kingdom of God” [3].  The true gospel that Christ spoke continually of is the good news that His Father’s kingdom is coming to this earth.  He is speaking of a real government that will replace all of man’s governments.  Righteousness, peace, and joy will replace crookedness, war, and misery that is plaguing the planet at this present time.  That is the good news that filled Christ’s mind. 

We have been told since childhood that the gospel is something else–that it is salvation.  Salvation is important as a first step, for one cannot enter the kingdom of God, the government of God, without it.  It is, however, only the first  baby step.  God wants us to grow up and be His governors in His literal kingdom that is soon coming to fill this whole earth.  There is so much more to it than what most churches teach!

The Thousand Year Reign

Where do we think we will be during the millenial reign of Christ?  He is returning to earth to establish God’s government here.  Are we going to be with Him here, or will we be “rolling around heaven all day”?  Will His offspring be playing harps on streets of gold in some mystical place, or will we be rolling up our sleeves and doing the work of “building the old waste places” of the earth–the aftermath of the great tribulation period?

If the overcomers are to “sit with Him on His throne,” then when will that happen?  Again, Christ is  coming back here to earth to rule and reign for 1,000 years.  His throne will be here, and the overcomers will be sitting with Him on His throne [4].  To those same overcomers “will I give power over the nations” to rule over them [5].

We need to have Christ’s mind, to think like He thinks.  And He thinks big!  On a world wide scale–like a worldwide government.  His true followers will He appoint to “have authority over ten cities” as He mentions in the parable of the pounds [6].  This parable, which as all parables reveal mysteries “kept secret from the foundation of the world,” is a snapshot of what His true followers will be doing during the 1,000 year reign.  They will be rulers–kings, if you will–over geographical areas of the earth. 

He did say that He was the “King of kings and the Lord of lords” [I Tim. 6: 5].  Look up “king” in the Greek and it is “leader of the people, prince, commander, lord of the land, king.”  “Lord of the land”?  What land?  The earth during the 1,000 year reign.

If you are reading this and seeing this, then “blessed are your eyes, for they see.  For many prophets and righteous men have desired to see these things and have not seen them” [8].  Why?  Because they saw the Kingdom afar off.  And it is for our time.  Oh, they will be with us in the kingdom.  In fact, we will sit at their feet and honor their faith that has been such an inspiration to us and that has helped us in our walk. They now sleep in the dust of the earth until Christ returns and resurrects them to be a part of His entourage at the beginning of the new wondrous age of peace that the Prince of peace will bring to this crooked, starved planet.

Oh, there is so much more that He wants to reveal to us, which is what He is thinking about, which is what is on His mind.

But the shame of it is this.  Many who claim to know God don’t know what His thoughts are.  I want to believe that this is the case.  For if they know about the true gospel of the kingdom and don’t share it with others for what ever reason, then–let’s just say–God will be most unpleased with them. 

And so I have to ask the question: How can you “know God” and not know His thoughts, not know what is in His mind?  When you know a person, you know what they are about.  You know whats on their mind because they will speak their thoughts.

In any event, we haven’t even scratched the surface of what is the Mind of Christ, which is the Mind of the Father.  “For eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of man, the things that God has prepared for those that love Him” [9].

These are the “unsearchable riches of Christ.”  But then, He also told us, “Seek and you shall find” the “hid treasure” in the earth, which is the Kingdom of God, which is “the mind of Christ.”  KWH
