New Book The Apostles’ Doctrine Coming Out in March 2019

[Below is the “Introduction” of my new book The Apostles’ Doctrine: The Seven Teachings of Christ. I will announce how you can order your free copy with free shipping very soon. May our Father bless and keep you]

Introduction

 We cannot do things to achieve salvation from God, but we must do certain things in order to grow His Spirit within us after we receive a new heart and after we are “born again.”

Because our Creator has a purpose of reproducing Himself (Love) in us, He, of course, has a definite plan to fulfill His purpose. He has thought it all through and lined it all out in His written word. And in His scriptures of truth are contained the thoughts of the Son of God, the “Word made flesh.” And these thoughts contain admonishments, and when done by us Christians, we will grow up to be like Him, which fulfills His purpose. [This is discussed in The Royal Destiny of God’s Elect, published in 2017.  It is free with free shipping to all who ask. See details here: https://immortalityroad.wordpress.com/free-new-book-the-royal-destiny-of-gods-elect/.]

We understand now that God is Love and that His purpose is to repro-duce Himself in us. We were created as a house for God to dwell in, for Love to dwell in. And we understand now that God has a plan to carry out this purpose of reproducing Himself. We see that this plan entails His kingdom, first to be established in our hearts, and then it is to be set up as a literal world-wide government headed by our King, the Son of God, upon His return to earth.

And we see that an integral part of God’s plan is the law of harvest. God is the Seed, the Word of God. And this Seed/Word “was made flesh and dwelt among us.” Christ is that Seed that germinates in our hearts and starts to grow as a grain of corn is planted, dies, and resurrects and grows in our gardens. We, too, begin to grow spiritually.

But then something bad happens to young Christians. The weeds spring up and begin to choke the word/seed. Babes in Christ are fed tainted milk, which are false concepts about God. Materialism with its many temptations subvert God’s plan from coming to fruition. Tough decisions arise for the babe in Christ for which Christ says to “count the cost.” The way grows narrow and difficult to navigate, where one finds few fellow travelers. And then the world extends a very wide and welcoming road where many go and seem to have wonderful fellowship, and the pilgrim is tempted to take that avenue.

What We Are to Do

But if God is calling us to the “higher calling” of being used for Him to reproduce Himself through, then we must ask ourselves, What do we do now to grow spiritually? Not what man’s traditions say to do, but what do the scriptures say for us to do. Tradition tells us, Go to church and give your tithes and offerings, confess your sins, do the best you can, and you will go to heaven when you die. But, is that all there is? Will God really be pleased with that? Is that all there is to it?

Surely not. For I do not see much growth in the lives in Christian circles. People do get cleaned up and start living a better life, but many backslide into their past actions. Many just remain regular attendees of their church services, content to be a part of a Christian social fabric. Is that what the prophets and apostles of old prescribed for our growth? Is that what the church in the book of Acts did?

No. We are given at least seven general “things to do” as Christians to effect proper spiritual growth. First, the early church “continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine” (Acts 2: 42). The apostles had a doctrine, and it was the same that Christ had. “Doctrine” means “teachings,” and they were delivering those teachings to the new converts. Some preachers asininely say, “We do not want doctrine; we just want Jesus.” They must not know that “whosoever transgresses and abides not in the doctrine of Christ has not God” (II John 1: 9).

What were the apostles’ teachings? They are concisely found in Hebrews 6: 1-2. They are the foundation that when done, will help us grow unto “perfection,” or complete spiritual maturity. They are repentance from dead works, faith toward God, the doctrine of baptisms, laying on of hands, resurrection of the dead, eternal judgement, and perfection. How many Christians would be able to list these vital concepts that the apostles taught? Few even know about them. Whose fault is that? God says it is their pastor’s fault. God pronounces a woe unto the shepherds for not feeding the flock of God with proper teachings (Ezk. 34: 1-10).

This book is by no means an attempt at a full rendering of each of the seven doctrines of the apostles. Each one could be the subject of several books. Nevertheless, what I have endeavored to do is to present an introductory treatise on Christ’s teachings, which stresses their importance and clarifies their function in the fulfilling of God’s purpose and plan.

Many think that such an endeavor has already been done many times, that there is no need for another Christian tome on the subject. However, most books that address Christ’s teachings come out of a strict denominational matrix which extrudes a tired predictable dough of regurgitated dogma void of original inspiration.

I have approached them as a Literature major would: Casting off the chains of preconceived interpretations, I read and study the eyewitness accounts, and with the Spirit’s guidance, extract a thesis from the sacred texts of the Bible. And then I go about proving that thesis using the texts themselves.

Two Major Sections of the Book

 The first part explains the importance of the apostles’ doctrine. An outline of foundational concepts about Christ’s teachings is also offered to facilitate more understanding of how these teachings help fulfill God’s purpose of reproducing Himself.

The second part of the book addresses each of the seven doctrines. The light shed therein serves to illuminate the path of each individual’s spiritual pilgrimage. Like I have said to my students over the decades: I cannot educate you. I can give you the tools, but you must pick up and use the tools. You must educate you.    KWH

The Kingdom of God–Not a Worn Out Phrase

The phrase “kingdom of God” has been used so much by so many people from so many different religious backgrounds that its real meaning may have been lost.  Heretofore, most  have understood the phrase to mean “God’s kingdom,” or the kingdom that belongs to Him.  And this is true, it does belong to Him and His children.  However, there is another way to look at that phrase, and that is “the kingdom of the Spirit.”

It says in John 4 that “God is Spirit.”  Therefore, “kingdom of God” can be construed as “kingdom of Spirit.”  Or, in other words, it means a form of order and government headed by a Sovereign entity that is comprised of Spirit.  The Master did say that “the flesh profits nothing; it is the spirit that makes alive.”  “All is vanity,” in other words, except the invisible spiritual things.

We are admonished that we should seek first this invisible spirit kingdom.  Also, the only true worship of the Father is in spirit and in truth.  It is not any old spirit worship, but it must be spiritual and truthful. It won’t be anything remotely having to do with earthly natural things.

True worship is an invisible connection between our spirit in the human heart and the Eternal Creator Spirit.  It is the connection you cannot see.  You cannot legislate it, tax it, build fine buildings in order to coax true worship into your midst.  It is an invisible agreement between the Creator and His special spiritual creation, Adam.  “The true worshipers must worship the Father in spirit and in truth.”  They must find out the truth about His invisible Spirit reign within, for “the kingdom of God (Spirit) is within you.”

It is a realm of the heart, an inner sanctum full of true thoughts about the true nature of things.  “The kingdom of God cometh not with observation.”  You can’t see it with your fleshly eyes.  It is not of this earth.  Consequently, when we look out over this earth, anything we see, be it ever so religious, cannot be or have anything to do with the kingdom of Spirit (God).

“Every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights.”  The kingdom of God is a dimension and realm that our five senses don’t pick up on.  It is not of this earth.  It must first be believed on, and then it will begin to manifest itself to the understanding of our hearts.  We will never see it first with our earthly eyes and then believe.  Faith must be exercised—believing having not yet seen with the fleshly eyes.  The kingdom of God is the government of God, who is Spirit, and who rules in our hearts by His very essence, which is spirit.

Lastly, the kingdom of God can only be seen and entered through being “born again,” or more properly translated, being “born from above.” We must be born “of the Spirit.” This happens through our spiritual death, burial and resurrection with Christ–by faith (John 3: 3-6; Romans 6).

Entering into His Rest By Faith–It’s Not What You Think

We, the children of God, need to rest. We need to “be still and know that He is God.” We are “tossed to and fro” and we scurry about entangled so easily by the cares of this world and its entrapments.

“There remains a rest to the people of God” (Heb. 4: 9). But what is this rest that God promises His children and how do we get there?

We enter into rest through belief. But by believing what exactly? Many believe on the Son of God, and yet they are still struggling, still exhausted by the constant onslaught of the world. Believe what?

We need to take our faith and belief to another level. We need to grow to a point where we believe that it is “no longer I that lives, but Christ that lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God” (Gal. 2: 20).

First, as the apostle Paul tells us, “Examine yourselves, whether you be in the faith…Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you…” (II Cor. 13: 5).  We are to look inside of our own hearts to see where we need to be. Have we really experienced the cross where our old self dies with Christ? Have we taken the plunge and died with Christ? We need to believe this. Is our old life buried with Christ? We need to believe this. Then “through faith in the operation of God that raised Christ from the dead” we, too, have been raised to walk in a newness of life (Col. 2: 11-14). We need to believe this.

So, when we believe that it is the Spirit of Christ living and walking around in our bodies, then we let Him do His works. We cease to do our own thing. And this is when we enter into His rest. This is when we observe the Sabbath day. This is how we keep it holy. “For he that is entered into His rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from His” (Heb. 4: 10). Read this again, for herein is a revelation that few on the earth has had. It is a precious promise straight from the throne of the King. Slow down and savor these words.

How can this be? What does the above mean? When we begin to really allow Christ to walk in us and let Him do His work through us, then we will have stopped doing our own thing as if we were still alive [Remember, we have died with Christ on the cross  as in Romans 6: 6]. We have “ceased from [our] own works, as God did from His.” This is the rest. This is the keeping of the true Christian Sabbath day.

Ceasing from our own works means that we are no longer there dictating what our physical bodies do all day long. We no longer are imagining that this pleases God or that pleases Him. No. this rest is when we are out of the picture, when we have allowed God to take control of our thoughts and actions. At this stage we are doing His works, for He in us is doing His works. This is entering into His Sabbath rest. This is the Christian Sabbath. Wow!

How Do We Do This?

As we believe His word, we do enter into His rest. And His rest is His confidence and belief that the plan contained in the Seed/Word/Logos has come, is coming, and shall come to pass just like He created the “incorruptible seed, the word of God” in the beginning.

He believes in us more than we believe in Him. Or rather, He believes in His plan working itself out in our lives–even though we don’t even understand it fully as of yet.

He knows that His thoughts, which are formed into words, “will not return unto Him void, but will accomplish” what He sent them to do. And believing this solidly, God now rests and waits with great patience on us to finally believe the same thing. “There remains therefore a rest [keeping of the sabbath, from the Greek word sabbatismos] to the people of God” (Heb. 4: 9).

No Spiritual Growth Without Knowledge

To grow in God, first, we have got to know things—His things. “Knowledge of the holy is understanding” (Prov. 9: 10). If you want to take a look at a human being without this kind of knowledge, then observe the young man in Proverbs 7. He does not know of His plan to perfect us. He hasn’t a clue about the spiritual maturity that can transform us into righteous powerhouses. He has no knowledge of God and His thoughts and ways, and he is left as prey for the lion Satan who “goes about seeking whom he may devour” (I Pet. 5: 8).

The young man is a type of all young men who are “void of understanding” and who lack true knowledge of the holy. He easily falls prey to the “woman with the attire of a harlot.” This loose woman in Proverbs is a symbol of the false religious system; she is exposed later as “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Rev. 17: 5). She through flattery and empty promises of love and peace seduces the young man, and he goes down “as an ox goes to the slaughter.” The Spirit concludes with this warning: “She has cast down many wounded; yea, many strong men have been slain by her. Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.”

So we see that the young man was indeed destroyed for lack of true knowledge of God. False knowledge taught by the mother church and her daughters about God will ruin us. This is the lesson of Proverbs 7. Without much extrapolation, we see that, yes, we must have His knowledge; without it we are a complete spiritual failure in our Maker’s eyes.

After attaining His knowledge of His plan and purpose, we must begin  to do what we now know to do. “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Free from what? Free from thinking that you have to sin. For that is exactly what the churches keep pounding into you.

But God has it all lined out. To grow to full maturity/perfection, to be like the apostles and prophets, He’s got a grid of requirements that we are to do. These are not works to get salvation or stay saved. No. We do what He’s asked us to do because we love and appreciate Him. Yahweh desires for us to grow to be like Him, so that we can be a channel of His love to the world. That is why we do the knowledge. We are to be “doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving [our] own selves” (James 1: 22).

The word says that we can do all things through Christ. The harlot church teaches that we will be sinners right down to the bitter end of this mortal existence. The churches teach that we can never grow to maturity/perfection in this life, that we will always be sinners.

But the apostle John did not believe that. Here’s some knowledge for us. “And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins; and in Him is no sin. Whosoever abides in Him sins not; whosoever sins has not seen Him, neither known Him. Little children, let no man deceive you…” (I John 3: 5-7). These have got to be the least quoted verses in the Bible.

And as for the argument that we cannot be like the early apostles, that it was just for their time, the word says that grace teaches us “to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.” The “present age” is our time, too, for Christ does not change (Titus 2: 12). We know that it is possible; just look at the early apostles and their doctrine that took them to maturity/perfection. And nowhere does it say that we cannot be like them–“in this present age.”    Kenneth Wayne Hancock

God’s Warning to the Pastors

It is sad, really, to see the pastors, preachers and priests go through the liturgical motions of laying on of hands when their heart is still in a state of sin. I know that many are merely trusting their denominational mentors who taught them in their seminaries and bible colleges. Being made free from sin is not in their curricula.

Many of them are sincere, which makes it even sadder to see them trapped in the false doctrines. They have the remnant’s teachings collected in the Holy Bible, but they lack a witness today.

What is the problem with their laying on of hands? By thinking it is their hands and not God’s hands, they think that their dutifulness and their soberness and their righteousness will touch God, and surely He will hear from heaven. And surely He will keep His word and heal this poor person or grant a baptism in the Holy Spirit to this one.

Yes, He will answer the prayers of His remnant, those whose sinful old natures are dead, buried, and risen with Christ to walk in a newness of life. He said that He will answer the prayers of those who have become His body now—where it is not their body with their hands, but it is now holy men [and women] of God, moved by the Holy Ghost, laying His hands on the sick.

For His remnant “is dead and [their] life now is hid with Christ in God” (Col. 3: 3). One of the remnant who communed with the risen Christ said that it is no longer I that lives, but Christ that lives inside. (Gal. 2: 20).

Somebody will say, “But I quote that verse in Galatians 2: 20.” Yes, people can quote scripture all day long, but one will know that it is real if “all things have become new” with a new heart, and a new life, a new Master. You say that you go by every word of God. But the word is clear and succinct: “Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” How is it a new life in Christ if sin is still plaguing you as your slave master? “For he that sins is a slave to sin” and “no one can serve two masters” (II Cor. 5: 17; John 8: 34).

He wants repentance from sin not everlasting penance. When repentance from sin is accomplished in a person’s life, it is over and done with. That person is free, “for he that is dead is freed from sin” (Rom. 6: 7). Coming into Christ is not joining a benevolent social club; it is a renunciation of a sinful life and a dying, a burial, and a resurrection with Christ.

To the Pastors, the Shepherds of His Flock

With much respect of God’s plan to have pastors feeding the word of God to the people of His pasture, I write this. We who endeavor to feed the flock of God must get it right. We must dig deep and take no teaching for granted. For Yahweh has pronounced a woe upon the pastors of His flock who teach false doctrines and precepts (Ezk. 34; Jer. 50: 6). Prove out the above paragraphs. If you still break the Ten Commandments, turn to Him now from that path. Go to the cross once and for all and let that old sin nature expire with Him and be buried with Him, and, praise God, be raised to walk in a newness of life. For we who feed the flock of God will receive the greater condemnation at His judgement seat if we do not get it right with the Chief Shepherd. We must never forget how austere our Master is, for He will say to some very devout and well-meaning shepherds, “Depart from Me; I never knew you.” And they will say, “But, Lord, we preached in your name and did good things for you…”

I get nothing material for writing these words—no money, no recognition, no laurels. And that is fine. If I can help one person to become a manifested son or daughter of God, my reward is secure. After the smoke of tribulation clears, just to be able to see each other be a part of His Kingdom here on earth, to be able to stand side by side as members of His cadre, to witness Christ in His glorious spiritual body come forth through the portals and address His people there in Jerusalem. Wow! And in that first year of His Thousand Year Reign, as we look at each other and smile, it is enough that we can be present at that holy convocation. That is our reward. Just to look upon Him, and who knows, perhaps to speak to Him, He who made the worlds and everything in them. To see His plan and purpose come to fruition—that is enough. Kenneth Wayne Hancock

Spiritual Hands of a Spiritual Body

To understand the apostles’ doctrine of the “laying on of hands,” we must first see how “hands” are members of the body of Christ. But what is the body of Christ? “Hands” are members of a body. Therefore, holy hands must of necessity be members of the body of Christ. Our search is leading us into the “unsearchable riches of Christ.”

Consequently, we must always in our search “look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal” (II Cor. 4: 18). The answers will not be found in the things we can literally see with our eyes. The answers will be gained through contemplating the invisible, eternal things.

The Body of Christ

Therefore, the body of Christ is invisible. For years I thought that your earthly body and my earthly body, cleaned up spiritually by God, was the body of Christ. I thought that the members of the body of Christ were the humans who gathered together in a building of some kind and wor-shipped God. Later I saw the church as a body of humans called out from the world, not necessarily “members in good standing” of some manmade religious organization. But I still thought that the church was the body of Christ and the church were the humans in that group of Christians.

But now I am realizing that there is a revelation waiting for us concern-ing the body of Christ. We have been “looking after the flesh” when dealing with the body of Christ.

Oh, we have had wonderful dreams of our hands doing great things. Totally understandable to have them. We looked at our hands and we imagined them being guided by the Spirit to heal, and, yes, even raise someone from the dead. We’ve seen our literal hands as being used by God to do special things as members of His body, doing His works in the earth.

Stop the daydream. This is looking after the flesh, however well inten-tioned. It is what Paul called “not discerning the Lord’s body.” For the body of Christ is a body of Spirit. It is a spiritual entity. The body of Christ is not a “form of matter.” It is not a “material substance” [“body” Webster’s].  It is not made of human flesh like your earthly body and mine. The body of Christ is not that which is gathered together in a church building, where humans sit in pews, or any other manmade structure.

What is the body of Christ then? It is a body of spiritual righteous actions that the Holy Spirit does. We must stop looking after the flesh! We have known Christ after the flesh; we have seen Him as a human who suffered bodily on the cross. That marred body, ironically, is not the “body of Christ,” for the body of Christ is spiritual and invisible.

“Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer” (II Cor. 5: 16). We must rather fully awake to the fact that Christ now is a Spirit that can and does enter into our natural earthly bodies. The aforementioned “unsearchable riches” are found in the glorious mystery, which is “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” And it takes born-from-above eyes to see the Kingdom of God established in everyone who receives Christ, the Spirit, into their heart (Col. 1: 26-27).

We are talking about the Spirit of God—Christ—the Anointed One—the Anointing—the Truth—the Spirit of Truth. His Spirit will take up residence in us. “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith” (Eph. 3: 17). How can Christ the man from Galilee dwell in our hearts? By receiving His Spirit, which is the Father, for Christ and His Father are one—one Spirit.

So now, the body of Christ is a spiritual body of actions and attributes of the Spirit. And when we get out of the way and let Christ’s Spirit take over and love through us, then Christ will have reproduced Himself. This takes us back to His purpose—to reproduce Himself.

But, alas, that is the initial problem. We spent many years existing on the planet, nourished only on the imaginations of men. And habits of thinking and living have entrenched themselves into our grey matter. But God calls us out of the matrix-like soup of deception, and He saves us and gives us wonderful experiences that we cleave unto. But the habit of thinking ourselves to be part of the “other”—other than God—this thinking prevents us from making room for the Spirit Himself to dwell in our bodies fully.

This is why Christ provides a way for us to once and for all dispose of the blockage that prevents us from manifesting agape love. For our egos are the exact opposite of God’s nature of selfless love.

This is why Christ, as our example, died on the cross and now has required all of us to die in revelation with Him. The Spirit says, “You are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.”

Once again, let us look at our hands. They as a part of our current physical bodies are alive. But we are dead. The old selfish sinful nature of born-from-above children of God has perished with Him on the cross. And the life that we now live, we live by the faith of Christ, for He has given us of His Spirit, by believing in His resurrection. We are the second man, a quickening spirit, a righteous spirit now, hidden in the Spirit called Christ. We are no longer bound by the belief that we are members of the animal kingdom, human beings calling ourselves the church, the body of Christ. We are not. We are a spirit that makes alive, a righteous action, and a force of truth, wisdom, and mercy. All things have become new. Old ways of looking at ourselves have passed away. We are now “members in particular” of the mystical, spiritual body of Christ.

The Hands of God

[This is Chapter 44 of my new book The Apostles’ Doctrine, due out late this fall.]

The elect, the remnant in the last days, repented of their sins. They forsook their selfish ways. And they walked in God’s faith like the patriarchs, prophets, and apostles of old. And the elect for these latter days became particular members of the body of Christ. And they grew to become the hands of God—God’s very own hands—hands that are destined to be laid upon a sick and dying earth.

To fully grasp the depth of this the doctrine of the laying on of hands, we first must see things through God’s eyes, the way He sees them. For He sees it through the lens of His purpose, which He has embedded in the pages of the Scriptures of Truth. Knowledge of His purpose is the key that unlocks every good door that He desires us to open. Believing in His purpose casts light on the incomparable calling of the “hands of God.”

It Is All About the Creator’s Purpose

All spiritual roads lead us back to God’s purpose. For His purpose is the glue that holds the meanderings of men’s feet steadfast on the paths of righteousness. Believing in His purpose gives our lives meaning. And when life goes sideways, as it will do, we can rest in the knowledge that it is all part of the plan to fulfill His purpose.

And this is His eternal purpose: God is reproducing Himself in human beings. He is in the process of multiplying Himself and planting His Spirit of Love throughout the universe. It is the reproduction of agape love, pure and simple. And He will do it through the body of Christ—you and I—if so be that we have surrendered to His plan and purpose. Nothing else can give our lives true meaning. He is Love and His desire to reproduce Himself in and through us is incomprehensible grace. There is really nothing else of any value in heaven or earth to compare to this kind of Love. For God-Love is the seed of all things and the harvest of all things.

And God has poured it all into His Son. It is all there. The Son is our chance to shine as we have given up our desires for vain self- glory and have put on the mind of Christ, who is the Seed-Son. We are created for His pleasure, and it pleases Him to expand His nature of Love using us as the medium. This is the theme of my 2017 book The Royal Destiny of God’s Elect [1]. He is sovereign; He calls the shots. He works all things out according to His plan and purpose.

When we see things through the eyes of His purpose, then we will comprehend how such a grand Spirit of Love needs us His people, as we need Him. He needs us to be the channels of His love to those in need. And we need His agape love flowing down and through us to give our lives fulfillment and meaning. “We love God because He first loved us and gave Himself for us.” God is that Spirit of Love who needs a body of people to love through. And yes, He wants to be loved and appreciated just like we do.

Why He Created an Elect

 Consequently, to fulfill His purpose, He has created and fore-ordained certain individuals, who are predestined to respond fully to the calling and election He has placed on them. He has left nothing to chance. He will make it happen. He cannot fail. If He has called and chosen you, you will respond, even when it looks to natural man’s eyes like you are resisting Him, for your names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. It is a done deal; we just have to be Hit witness through acting on knowledge of His plan.

He calls these people His elect, His chosen ones, His remnant. They are alive today, but dead to themselves, and the new life inside their hearts is the life of Christ reproduced again, a brilliant seedling bursting through the sullen earth, growing and living by the faith of the Son of God (Rom. 8: 18-33; II Cor. 3: 18; Col. 1: 27).

The Creator has given to His chosen ones the heart and ability to see these things of which we speak—to realize that they are His corporate body, His literal torso, legs, arms, and His hands. For He needs hands to show mercy and love to those entering into His Kingdom. He needs hands to bless and guide others out of the pervading darkness. Without hands it is difficult to lay foundations to physical as well as spiritual buildings—skills needed during the reconstruction of this world after Great Tribulation and His return to His throne.

When we begin to see things through God’s eyes, we will see that we, the body of Christ, hold a special place in the King’s heart. For He will choose certain members of His body to be His hands, chosen for a special calling. For He will place His hands upon people to heal them and bless them, much the same way that Christ sent forth His disciples out two by two.

He said to them, “He that believes on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do…” (John 14: 12). How could we ever do anything greater than raising the dead? Their deeds will be greater, for they will be more numerous. Because it is the time of the harvest, thousands of the sons of God will do the same works that Christ did. For at that time their hands will be Christ’s hands. They will do the acts of Christ because Christ’s Spirit will be fully formed in them.

It is through this promise of the “manifestation of the sons of God” that the purpose of God will be fulfilled (Rom. 8: 19). His Life, Love and Essence will be multiplied, for He will have reproduced Himself in His elect for the last days. They will come right on time. That time is now.

Thousands of His elect will lay the “hands of God” on the peoples of this world, and by the Spirit of Christ within them, they will heal the nations as they herald the coming of the Kingdom of God. God will lay His hands on this sick world, and He will heal it on an international level.      Kenneth Wayne Hancock
