Some Have a Royal Destiny in Christ’s Kingdom

God loves all of us His children. All of us are precious in His sight. The Spirit operates in some degree in all of us. But there are “differences of administrations.”
There are “diversities of operations” but the same Spirit “working through all of [us]” (I Cor. 12: 4-13). Responsibilities differ for each member of His body.

Some may pastor small congregations, and others may teach at church. And some write articles and letters of edification and instruction to many throughout the world. Such was Paul’s calling.

The point is that we are His one body, and we all have our place in His body. And we are all being “transformed by the renewing of [our] mind” as we serve him in the capacity that He has called us.

We all have our gift from Him to the other members of His body, the church. How and why are there differences? Each differs “according to the grace that is given to us” (Rom. 12: 6). “Grace” is God favoring us in some way.

God shines His grace, His favor, on individuals in His body in different amounts and at different times in their lives. Some will have a problem with this, so let me explain.

Two Parables Reveal Wonderful Secrets

Consider the parable of the talents: “For the kingdom of heaven is as a man traveling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey” (Matt. 25: 14-29).

Parables reveal secrets about God’s literal kingdom soon to come to this earth. Christ is in the “far country.” And He gave talents to His followers. The amounts differed according to their ability.” Some could handle more responsibility than others. The one with five gained five more. The one with a lesser amount of two did gain two more. And the Lord praised both of them and rewarded them with rulership over many things.  But the servant with only one talent was afraid and had no faith in his master, and he was banished and shamed for his error.

The one with two talents did not complain, but with a good heart did his best out of love for his Lord. As did the one with five. The fact remains here that grace/favor was given in different amounts according to the particular abilities of each servant.

We should tie this in with the different spiritual fruit production rates as seen in “The Parable of the Sower” (Matt. 13: 3-9). Christ reveals a secret when He tells us in this parable that some Christians will bring forth thirty fold fruit, some sixty fold, and some will bear one hundred fold fruit.

We see in these two parables that in His kingdom, He gives grace in different amounts, and this grace yields different amounts of spiritual fruit production.

Some Will Become Like Peter, James, John, and Paul in Our Day

Here it is. Some members of Christ’s body are predestined to be “conformed to the image of His Son” (Rom. 8: 29-33). Some will be the first to be glorified and transformed into an immortal state. Some will bear this 100 fold fruit and be like the Son of God. In fact, Christ will be formed fully in them. This is God’s choosing. We cannot work to be awarded this honor. These are His chosen ones for this honor. These are His first fruits, and they will overcome all things and will sit with Him on His throne (Rev. 3: 21).

Not all Christians are chosen for this. Some will spiritually mature later. They have their part to play that is very important. It’s like this. At Boeing Corporation, engineers design a new jet airliner. Machinists actualize their blueprints into real parts, and workers put the parts together to make the plane.  And the executives procure the financing, personnel, and materials to make the big picture happen. Everyone is important and indispensable in the process. All are needed to fulfill the plan and purpose.

And we all in the body of Christ are needed to fulfill God’s plan and purpose. We have His Spirit operating in us according to His grace and direction.

A Greater Need We Share

Look, we all need each other. But there is a greater need that we all share. It is to know in detail God’s Master Plan as seen in the scriptures of truth. God’s plan is not born from the imaginations of TV evangelists or their clones on every corner.

If God reveals to us that He is bringing some in the body to sit with Him on His throne and to rule and reign with Him for 1,000 years–should we not all hunger and thirst for more knowledge about their rise in these last days before the King’s return?

Should we not all aspire to become one of those who will reign with Christ? Should we not at least help them fulfill their calling–at least be supportive by first studying and praying for their arrival on the world’s stage?

For the whole creation is waiting “for the manifestation of the sons of God” (Rom. 8: 19). Should not all of us then have that same “earnest expectation” of this glorious event?

God’s elect are the ones God has chosen to be the first to completely come to maturity in God’s spiritual life cycle. They are destined to come to full fruition in these latter days. Their arrival on the scene is a surprise event that the world will not be ready for.

The question is–will we be ready? Will we embrace this light and help and edify them in their calling and election. If we do, then we will have passed the “selflessness test.” We will have proven that it is all for God and His plan. For we should all seek first His kingdom, which includes the King and kings who will be the “rulers over many cities” that He speaks about in the parables. We should all seek His will concerning this. And we should embrace His plan and purpose–even if we are not to be one of those who will bear 100 fold fruit. We should want to help them get there. In this we will show our love for God.    Kenneth Wayne Hancock

The Manifestation of the Sons of God–The Ultimate Prophecy

Nobody is talking about the most stupendous prophetical event that will ever take place on this tired old earth. Not a peep about it from the pastors and evangelists and the priests and prophets. They have either never been taught it, or they have rejected it outright. But no one has the “manifestation of the sons of God” on the spiritual radar screen.

It is a radical concept put forth by Christ and His apostles–that Christ will be fully formed in a chosen few thousand people, most of whom are probably treading  this earth today. It is an extreme position to take, that God would “reveal His Son in [us],” as Paul said (Gal. 1: 16). It was a radical prophecy that Christ gave when He said that His followers would do “greater works” than what He had done (John 14: 12).

Greater Than Raising the Dead?

Christ believes that we will do greater exploits than He did. What could be greater than raising the dead? Only one thing: when thousands are raising the dead, showing to the world God’s awesome power. Only that is greater.

These sons of God, destined to be revealed during these latter days, are the heralds of Christ’s return to set up His kingdom. Their revealing, their revelation, their manifestation to the world is the event that will literally save this planet from destruction. Christ, remember, will be fully formed in these offspring; it is all Him in them. They will usher in the 1,000 year reign and return of the Son of God. Their unveiling to the inhabitants of the earth will begin the “restitution of all things which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began” (Acts 3: 19-22). But no one in Christian circles discusses it. Very curious, indeed.

Seed Time and Harvest

The Son of God was the Seed that was planted into the earth, and these aforementioned sons are the harvest. Christ said before His crucifixion that it was time “that the Son of man be glorified…Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth much fruit.” The “much fruit” are God’s offspring who will have the same power that the early rain apostles did in the Book of Acts. And it is their walk on earth that will be the Son’s glorification.

We are talking about, of course, the “manifestation of the sons of God, the 100 fold fruit bearing harvest of fully matured Christians with the same power as their Head. These few thousand are not to be confused with the millions of God’s children. These are God’s cadre of rulers who will be expressing God fully during the 1,00 year reign. In fact, they will be immortal, having received their new spiritual bodies, being the first fruits unto God. They are the first to bear 100 fold fruit (Matt. 13). Some will bear 30 fold and some 60 fold, but these will bear “much fruit.”

These are they who will display the full power of the Almighty, and they will sit down next to Christ on His throne! Not only sonship, but kingship. Remember Christ’s promise to the overcomers in the last church age: “I will grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in His throne” (Rev. 3: 21). This is written only to those who have an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying concerning all this. And maybe that answers the question posed earlier. Why doesn’t anyone speak about this great manifestation of God’s sons? Perhaps they do not have ears that can grasp these things. Some just can’t see nor understand this vision. He did say, A man can receive nothing except it be given from heaven. (John 3: 27).

These manifested sons of God are what the whole creation is waiting for, whether they realize it or not (Rom. 8: 19). These will be the saviors of the world. We can read about them in Rev. 7 and 14. As the prophet Obadiah prophesied, “And saviors shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S” (Yahweh’s) (v. 21).

God will use these saviors to finally drive the last nail in the coffin of Satan’s kingdom, which is controlled by Esau/Edom’s descendants. They will do nothing less. This is how important this vision and prophecy is. And yet, only one in 10,000 are talking about this. Let us all who read this be that one.    Kenneth Wayne Hancock

What the World Needs Now Is…Agape Love

Life is really all about love. Rather, a fulfilled life is all about love. Books, songs, poems, and most artistic masterpieces have as their major theme something about love. It is “what the world needs now.”

So we have the thinkers and poets penning down for the masses the hidden longings of the heart, for love. Although they may not realize it, mankind’s longing for love is really a desperate desire for God on some level. For there is only one entity in the universe that actually is love, and that is God, for “God is love” (I John 4: 16).

Thus, mankind’s search for love ends when he finds God. Seeking to be loved from another individual is seeking an earnest of God that He has placed in man and woman, who was created in His image.

The Hebrew prophets and apostles speak of just these very things. The Son of God Himself spoke of love, living it out dramatically through His Passion. He is Love incarnate, for He exhibited the greatest love that a mortal can ever do–to lay down his life for his friends.

This act of self-sacrifice for another instantly touches the human heart like no other act. The Son of God presented Himself the sacrificial Lamb for our deliverance, and now He asks His followers to do the same. But this time we are “to present our bodies a living sacrifice.”  Through this humble service to our King, we will not become self-centered proteges of this world system, but we will be “transformed by the renewing of our minds.” We will change into His image through thinking His way, by His Spirit. (Romans 12: 1-2).

Now His Holy Spirit of Love multiplies and abounds in us when we do what He did, which is lay down our lives to help save mankind from a life without love (God). It is not so we can escape hell and go to heaven. That is not why He laid His life down. To follow Him, we must do it for the same reason.

How Do We Lay Our Lives Down Like Christ Did?

He wants us to join Him on the cross. The moment just before Christ died, all of the sins of mankind were place upon Him. He wants us at first to join Him on the cross. This signifies that our old haunts and sinful desires and deeds coming out of our old heart die with Him. Our old sinful nature died with Christ that day. And “he that is dead is freed from sin” (Romans 6: 7). We are free from the enslavement to sin and sinning that was our old selfish life! The problem is many just do not believe it. They have not heard of it and are loathe to believe anything “new.” They think that it is impossible to be rid of sin in a Christian’s life. But is anything too hard for God? To him that believes, aren’t all things possible with God? (I John 3: 9).

Dying with Him is the initial baptism or immersion into His death. Then we  believe that we are buried with Him. And then we believe that He was raised from the dead after 72 lifeless hours in the tomb. It is through believing in His resurrection that enables us to believe that we are raised from the dead, too! (Romans 6: 4-5). This is His faith, His belief. When we also believe this great act of the greatest love, then we receive His Spirit of life and love, and we walk “in a newness of life”! And love!

His resurrection power is born of love. For it surges forth after the selfless act of laying down His life for His friends, the greatest love. Our conscious act of following Christ in doing this is met with the resurrection power of love (God), now in us.

Spiritually Growing
And then we, “as newborn babes,” are to spiritually grow in Him. Or rather, we will spiritually grow as the Spirit of Love grows in us.

“Babes in Christ” need the “sincere milk of the word” in order to grow properly. They are, of course, mostly alive in their new life for what they can receive from the Father. Their prayers reflect this, for their petitions  center on their own needs. This is why Christ teaches all of us to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,” and all of our earthly needs will be supplied. But it takes a spiritual growth to become mature in Him enough to do this. A growth that the milk and then the meat of the Word will accomplish. For we all must be taught His thoughts, desires, and will, in order to grow (I Peter 2.2; Matt. 6: 31-34).

But herein lies the problem. Instead of the sincere and uncorrupted milk and later meat of the Word, they are fed with half-truths, imaginations, and traditions of men about God and not the “food that is needful for [them]” (Prov. 30: 8). Thus, the little children of God, lamentably, are stunted in their spiritual growth in Christ, stunted by erroneous concepts of the Savior and His plan for this world.

But a “babe in Christ” is like a child fed only with junk food their whole life. When the white sugar, corn syrup, and white flour products are taken away and a wholesome diet is place in front of them, they will say that the old junk food is  better. “And no one, having drunk old wine, immediately desires new; for he says, ‘The old is better.’ ” “Wine” is universally accepted to be a symbol of “doctrine” (Luke 5: 39).

Warnings about this problem in the last days fill the writings of the apostles of Christ. All of the New Testament writers, along with the prophets of old, expressed their concerns.

But Some…

But some will break out of the stunted pack, pulled by a strong yearning for the answer to life’s riddle. God has called some according to His purpose. He foreknew and conferred on them a destiny “to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren” (Rom. 8: 28-29). He has chosen them “in Him before the foundation of the world, that [they] should be holy and without blame before Him in love.” Agape Love (Eph. 1:4).

These chosen ones, invisibly guided by His Spirit, will answer the “high calling.” They will decrease so that He can increase His presence in them to the point that Love (God) will express Himself fully to every one on earth–through them.

These He is calling. They have already been chosen. And they will respond and become the over comers of all things like the the corrupted half-truths and traditions of men about God. Fed with the sincere truth of God’s plan, they will grow fully to express Christ in human form again. They will believe Christ’s words: “Greater works shall you do than what I have done.”

They will be the princes and princesses in God’s kingdom, soon to be established earth wide upon His return. Filled with Christ’s Spirit, during the 1,000 Year Reign, they will be His viceroys, governing the provinces of the earth after the dust and ash of Tribulation settle.

How Will They Grow?

This vision of the “gospel of the kingdom” is what will feed and nourish young Christians so that they can spiritually grow to be just like Christ.

And the growth of God within them is the growth of love within them. Christ’s words confirm this: “All men will know that you are My disciples if you have love one to another.”

The last days are upon us. All these promises of sonship are written for our time, brothers and sisters. We are living in the time of the latter rain of His Spirit. Are we the ones who will shake off the chains of Christian mediocrity and free ourselves from spiritual infancy? Will we stand up and answer this highest of His callings–to sit with Him on His throne? Not every Christian will. Consider the five foolish virgins (Rev. 3: 21; Matt. 25: 1-13).

Or will we recede to the rear near the nursery and hide our talents in the earth, only to be chided by the Master, “You slothful and unprofitable servant.”

Sadly, this will come upon some Christians, all because they did not dig deep and prove all things and study for themselves the “new things” presented to them along the way. Christians who don’t grow will never express the greatest love, the love that comes from above, that heals the poor and needy, that rights the wrongs of human depravity, that restores God’s righteous judgements in the earth, thus incarnating God (Love) once again to a love-starved earth.

It is this kind of love that we are to finally add to the divine nature within us now. “Agape love is the bond of perfectness.” It is that last attribute of God’s divine nature that makes us complete in Him. It matures us, for when added, we will have been “conformed to the image of His Son.”  {My readers, I have poured it out for you. Can a brother get an “Amen”? Tell me what you think about these things. Did they make you think? Did they inspire you? Did they make you angry? Make a comment. Let me know your thoughts about these things. Holler at me. I need your fellowship.    Kenneth Wayne Hancock}

The Commandment of God We Never Obey

We Christians endeavor to obey what God tells us to do or not do. He says, Do not steal, we don’t steal. We really do try to obey His commands, admonishments, and exhortations.

But there’s one commandment we seldom if ever obey. Very few of us even know about it. And it is this: “Ask Me about My sons, the work of My hands” (Isa. 45: 11). The Spirit of God is speaking through the prophet Isaiah, telling us to ask Him about what He is doing, how He occupies Himself. He is commanding those who sincerely seek Him to literally ask Him about His work.

The work of God’s hands is what He does to forge us into His family of sons and daughters. It is His everyday toil and vocation. And He wants us to inquire of Him concerning what He is doing. It is so important to Him that He is commanding us to ask Him about the work of His hands.

Making Sons

And that work is making sons–sons of the King, the princes and princesses in His Kingdom of God. His children are His heirs, His royal offspring who will rule with Christ the King during His 1,000 year reign here on earth.

God is a worker. He is depicted in the scriptures as a workman working with His hands. He is a “wise master builder” who has laid the foundation of His house. He is the Potter sitting at the wheel, working the clay (us) into vessels of honor or dishonor. He is the Sower of seed; He is the husbandman that labors in His vineyard.

Ask Me About My Sons

Okay, Father. I will ask You. God, what about your sons? What about your work, the work of your hands? Are they the same offspring that the apostle Paul speaks of in Romans 8, where he speaks of “the glory which shall be revealed in us” (v. 18)? Are your sons that entity that the whole creation is waiting for (v. 19)? Are they the “joint-heirs with Christ” (v. 17)? Wait a minute. That’s us, isn’t it? Us Christians? Are Your sons the “remnant according to the election of grace”? Are they the 100 fold fruit bearing over-comers in our end time generation who will do the “greater works”?

I believe that the answer is yes to all of these questions. His sons and daughters are the election, His chosen ones. He says that they will “go on to perfection” in full spiritual maturity, being just like our example Jesus Christ (Yahshua the Anointed One).

With God we can do this; we can walk this higher walk. “And nothing shall be impossible to him that believes.” We are “more than conquerors through Him that loved us” (8: 37).

But we must pray for eye salve that we may see, for “blindness in part is happened to Israel [not the Israeli nation, but rather the “lost sheep of the House of Israel]. Only a small remnant can see right now the plan of God in how He is molding and shaping His offspring. It is this remnant who are the called and chosen and eventually will be glorified (Romans 8-28-33). They will not hollowly display God’s physical image in this world, but they will manifest His glorious presence. This is what any good prince or princess would do–to bear witness to the righteous and holy sovereign reign of their wonderful Father the King.

This is what our Father is working on–us, His elect, His chosen ones. That is what He is all about–us. We are the work of His hands, His workmanship. And He wants us to ask Him about His sons.      Kenneth Wayne Hancock

The Great Last Day Move of God–When Will the Sons of God Appear on the Scene?

When God grants immortality to His sons and they go out and heal the sick and raise the dead and do the greater works that Christ promised that they would do–when this happens, it will be the greatest move of God the world has ever experienced. But when will this take place? What has to happen first?

In Biblical history, every great move of God is preceded by a catastrophe suffered by His people. The Bible is full of stories of God’s chosen people who at first are prosperous by  being blessed by their Creator. Then they turn from their Father and begin to serve other gods and disobey the laws that He has set down for their good.

God then allows His people to be conquered by an idolatrous nation that enslaves them. They are robbed and pillaged of their livelihood and heritage. When they hit bottom and finally have had enough of this destitution, they remember God, the great God of their childhood and their fathers, and they cry unto Him for deliverance.

It is only then that God hears their cries and calls out a savior (with a little “s”). This scenario has been played out time and again in the scriptures. God calls one of His few faithful out and empowers him to do the mighty works needed for delivering His people.

As the psalmist said, “Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron; because they rebelled against the words of God…therefore He brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help. Then they cried unto the LORD (Yahweh) in their trouble, and He saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness…” (Psalm 107: 10-14).

We see this over again in the life experiences of the patriarch Joseph, the call of Moses, Gideon’s 300, Samuel and all the judges, and Elijah and Elisha, to name a few.

We are headed down the same road now

Before a great move of God we see this play out. And these things are happening now–with us. “Now all these things happened unto them for examples and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come” (I Cor. 10: 11).

Why would the last end time generation–us, my brothers and sisters–why would we need to be admonished by God through the history of His chosen people? Why did God have his prophets meticulously write down how His children strayed and how they were saved?

Could it be that God’s people have strayed from Him once again and have  cleaved unto a false way?

We see the U.S.A., Canada, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and most westernized countries all declining economically. The U.S. dollar is being debased at an alarming rate.  The U.S. government has borrowed 17.5 trillion from the privately owned corporation known as the Federal Reserve Bank–a staggering national debt. The Fed is creating 80 billion dollars a month out of thin air, inflating the currency. It will soon be worthless, for the lenders will soon not want the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. When the dollar is rejected, then the charade will be over. Experts are saying that it will crash along with all the world’s fiat currencies that are tied to the dollar.

Many are predicting this to happen soon. And the crash of the dollar will be a disaster for the West. “The borrower is servant (slave) to the lender.” We have been enslaved to the international bankers, and the great middle class of the U.S. and Western Europe will be brought very low on the economic ladder. When the dollar crashes and is rejected by the world as its reserve currency, then all those dollars will come flooding back to our shores causing hyperinflation. Savings, retirement accounts, and fortunes will be lost, and the Western nations will become impoverished because of it. Only the owners of gold and silver will be spared.

But this scenario should not come as a surprise to any student of the Bible. God’s people were always conquered by nations antagonistic towards Yahweh. They would suffer to the breaking point, and then they would cry out to God. And He would hear and call out a man of God.

Normalcy Bias

But this can’t happen to us, most will say, not aware that their normalcy bias is rearing its head out of the sand for a moment. Humans are inclined to believe that “all things will continue” the way they have for hundreds of years. Humans tend to believe that all things will remain normal, and anything abnormal, like the crash of the dollar, well, just cannot happen. Maybe it is just wishful thinking on their part. But the fact is that the abnormal happens to individuals, cities,  countries, and whole continents. Countless currencies have collapsed down through history because of excessive borrowing. And it will happen again to the U.S. currency. God’s children once again will be the slaves of cruel taskmasters as they were during Biblical times. This time it will not be with the sword, but with the pen, or rather the computer.

There is a reaping for the sins of our nations. And no safety net will spare us from the catastrophe. Of course, we would have written the end time story with us using a get-out-of-jail-free card, good for a ticket on the Escape Train. However, God is allowing this economic crash to happen that He may bring to pass the “manifestation of the sons of God.” The elect sons and daughters will endure much suffering along with the rest of His people in order to forge a special Sword of the Spirit in their hearts. They will assemble into His army as in the Bible stories of old, and God will raise them up to deliver His people. It is written in prophecy over and over.

But many Bible teachers are critics of this scenario and say that we will not have to reap the whirlwind of catastrophe. They say that God will provide a way out of all this misery. They say that no saviors and deliverers are coming. That Christ is the only Savior and that He is coming back and it could be tonight.

He’s Coming Back in a Body of Many Sons

Christ is coming back, all right, but He won’t be by Himself. He is the Head of His body, and His followers are the various members of the spiritual body of Christ, which is His church. His many membered body are the “saviours [that]shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau.” When?  It is that time when “the kingdom shall be the LORD’S” (Obadiah 17-21). That is as “end time” as you can get. These “saviours” are His elect, the immortal ones, the sons of God, who will do the “greater works” that Christ promised.    Kenneth Wayne Hancock           [ Immortality Road is a blog for all seekers in all spiritual growths–“children, young men, and fathers.” The articles found here are especially for those who are answering the high calling of becoming a part of the “manifestation of the sons of God.”  You can get on Immortality Road  here: http://ImmortalityRoad.wordpress.com ]

The Manifestation of the Sons of God–What the World Needs Now

{Order your free copy of The Unveiling of the Sons of God or my new book The Royal Destiny of God’s Elect. It is totally free with free shipping to my readers. Just send your mailing address to my email address: wayneman5@hotmail.com   Specify which one.}

This world has one major need right now at the beginning of the 21st Century.  The world doesn’t need another politician telling the people what they want to hear.  The world doesn’t need a steady robust economy to help it through the hard times that have been prophesied upon it.  No.  The world needs the sons of God to arrive on the scene.  They must come forth for these last days.

The whole creation, the apostle Paul wrote, (whether it knows it or not), is anxiously awaiting the sons of God to come upon the world stage.  For the sons of God will have something that all mortals walking the face of the earth must have.  They will have the key that will set the whole creation free from the chains of a certain physical death.  These children of the Most High are God’s elect, His sons made in His image, and they are what this world needs.  They are the ones who will have cut through all of the deception and vice in this world system.  They alone will see the Spirit and walk in the Spirit and be filled with the Spirit of the living Yahweh.  They will build the old waste places and build the spiritual walls to the heavenly city.

Why the World Needs the Sons of God

The creation has purposely been subjected to mortality by its Creator God. The impending gloom of a certain death is no accident or aberration of God’s  original  plan.  It  has  been  His  will  all  along  for  death  to  come to all living.  And then, a few mortals will be brought by Him to an awareness of the abiding power of His spiritual presence and will become His actual spiritual children. He will change them and will engulf them with immortality one day soon.   And it is through them that the whole creation will finally come to know this glorious liberty from a certain physical death. The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.  For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. Romans 8:19-21, NIV. 

     Every living thing on this planet will die; the whole creation will decay and go back to dust.  And we, this earthly creation, are “in bondage of corruption,” as it says in the King James Version.

The word “corruption” is translated from the Greek word phthora, #5356 in Strong’s.  It means “decay.”  Its root comes from #5351 phthio, to waste, shrivel, or wither.  We, the creation, are bound to become decaying matter someday.  And all of us, be we religious or not, are groaning under the impending physical doom that awaits us.

All of us have a built in desire to live forever.  Every ancient culture, without exception, was concerned with this impending gloom of an early exit from life.  All the ancient religions were concerned about how to secure immortality  for  the  mortal.   And  so  it  is  with religions today.  Man keeps on waiting, waiting, waiting for something real that will happen in order to deliver them from a certain death.

The creation is like the wife of the Creator, who is in the  deep  pains  of childbirth.  She is struggling to deliver her  children,  the  sons  of God.  For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.  And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. Romans 8: 22-23, KJV.

The whole creation is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the sons of God because they are the first ones who will be released from mortality’s chains.  They will be the first ones who will not have to taste death.  And then after they are made known, the creation can look forward to its redemption.  That is how important the sons of God are.  When they are adopted or placed as sons, then a new era begins—an era where immortals will stride the earth, showing forth God’s way.

We Who Have Some Truth Also Desperately Need the Sons of God

Just look around us.  What do we see in every corner?  We see lurid trash in political high places, filthy-minded  movies and TV.  There is no shame to the world system.  And it is not getting any better.  So we try to lock in on the word of God.  We endeavor to glimpse a truth here, a truth there.  Some of us are trying to lead a holy life, but we “see through a glass darkly.”  We know, or should know that we are not walking in all truth.  For if we were, we would be bearing the same spiritual fruit as the prophets and apostles of God.  And we can’t seem to get in agreement and one accord with other sincere followers of Christ.

As  a  large  body  of  people,  we  can’t  see  eye  to   eye enough to get together.  Divisions abound.  We, if we are blessed, have a place to meet with a few other people who share some of our own beliefs, but something is dras-tically missing.  The unity of the Spirit is only a dream, for one group does not see eye to eye with another.  We are to be in one mind and one accord, and yet, who is to say just what that one mind is?  Who has the authority to say for sure anything?  Who has a sure word? There are several thousand “Christian” denominations, and they are growing exponentially daily.  There is probably a different concept of God and His plan for every one of His professing followers.

And it appears that the enemy is gaining ground, and we, the body of Christ, because of our disagreements and lack of unity, are seemingly losing ground as far as any “great move of truth” is concerned.

So what is the answer to this dilemma?  It is as if Yahweh Himself is needed to come down and just flat appear to His select few, whoever they are!  That would clear up the dim vision of those He has chosen.  They would definitely “get on the same page” after that shared glorious experience.  In the light of His own countenance and glow filling the room each would be in, He would straighten out off-concepts, purge out old leaven, old hypocrisies, and false concepts of Himself.  There would be no self-delusion if the King Himself came down to a handful!

Then a fire would well up from out of their bones!  Then they would cry to His people in His stead.  They would be His voice with his word welling up and out as springs gush out making rivers where dry land once was.

That is what we all need.  We need a sure word.  We need the Captain of our faith Himself to get a cadre of His brothers to catch on fire and, in turn, ignite the world.  We need a group of people baptized with the Spirit and with fire.   We need them!   We groan within ourselves, longing for someone to stand in the gap between God and the world.

That is the only thing that will ever turn this world upside down—if the people of the world were ready and knew they had a need for God in human form, had a need for the sons of the living God.

This whole creation is crying and groaning looking for someone sincere and true to believe in.  The heroes are gone; the people run to their idols of music and movies.  Those are their gods—gods who cannot see or hear them and their longings and needs, for their gods can see no one but themselves.  The whole creation does not know it, but they are groaning and longing for the manifestation of the sons of God.  And these sons will walk with the Lamb wherever He goes, for they shall be like Him.  These are they who will do the greater works that the Master spoke of.

It All Hinges on the Sons, But Do They Know Who They Are?

Yes, the manifestation of the sons of God is of extreme importance in God’s plan, but do they know who they are?  Do they realize their calling that He has placed on them?   Do  they  know  that  He  knew  them  long  before their earthly sojourn began?  Do they at present realize that  He  has  already  given  them  a  glorious   destiny—a destiny that has them justified from sin, set apart for this special work, and also glorified from heaven?  Does God’s elect, His chosen ones, know these things?

Have they called on His name and restored their heart back to Him?  But if they haven’t believed on Him, then how are they to call on Him?  And how can they believe on this God if they have never heard Him, never heard His Spirit, never heard Him who is the Word?  They are going to have to hear Him being spoken out of the mouth of another son in order to believe on Him.  And how shall these prospective sons hear unless there be a preacher?  And who is really going to be effective as a preacher?  The world is full of preachers.  Anyone who thinks they have heard from God calls himself a preacher.  The future sons will be reached by those who proclaim the truth.  And these proclaimers will be sentFor whosoever shall call upon the name of Yahweh shall be saved.  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?  And how shall they preach, except they be sent?   Kenneth Wayne Hancock

The Vision of God–Let Us Speak of Eyes

Vision is not man looking through his own eyes at God executing His will on earth. Nor is it us looking through God’s eyes. But rather vision occurs when God looks through our eyes. When our eyes are but His oculars through which, unclouded by the stains of earthly wisdom’s tainted presumptions, He assays His creation, and broken-heartedly sees the need for justice, love, and mercy. And He sees that from these three pools of water must He now use our hands and hearts to minister moisture to a parched and famine infested land.

For “where there is no vision, the people perish.” Where no man gives his eyes that He may peer our sad present world, then the vision is dim and the people suffer. But after He has made His abode in many, then in the presence of choiring angels He at last will stride forth across the domain of His kingdom here on earth, righting wrongs held seething in hearts for ten thousand years.

But first, those called to surrender now the regal aspirations for their selves, their dreams of their own greatness must be abdicated and thrown on the dung heap, as our brother Paul has admonished. For in comparison to their calling to be one of God’s sons, seated fittingly on the throne with Christ, their present vainglorious dreams do futilely fade.

For the dreams of mortals are not worthy thoughts for the immortal children of the Immortal King. Surrendered eyes, directed by allegiant hearts bring vision to the earth. For the King will then see through our unencumbered eyes the needs across the land. The need for love and balm and a gentle touch to heal the sores of many nations and peoples will He bring through the unveiling of His offspring. For they are His princes and princesses, full of His Spirit, soon to be immortalized with their “house from heaven,” their spiritual body.

In preparation for that glorious day, these elect of which we speak must educate and consecrate themselves by holding to John Baptist’s adage. They “must decrease, and He must increase.” The Spirit must increase to a point that it would no longer be them that looked out of their own eyes, but the Spirit of Christ.

To be fruitful and attain this heavenly vision, the elect must add attributes to God’s faith within them. Outlined in II Peter 1, these are not spiritual things about God, but rather are integral aspects of His divine nature that when added, He will then feel welcomed to come into us and make His abode with us and look through our eyes.     KWH
