The Culture of Righteous Rule of Sons – Part 1 Piecing Beyond the Veil of the Soul
The Veil of the Soul Has Been Rent In Two.
The Soul must be Ruled by the Spirit
It is imperative that at this point in our maturation towards sonship in our Households that spiritual fathers start to identify with clarity, the ways of the Spirit, howbeit that we have come so far in our “Christian walk” and still remain unable to think like Jesus Christ should at the very least be the question that should invade our thought life to a point of rediscovery and research. If we have yet to craft the Doctrine of the Righteous Rule of Sons, then as a threshold argument what we can begin with is to understand the ways of the soul life of an orphan or learn to map the paths of the souls ways of thinking so that we can learn to peculate the Culture of the Righteous Rule of Sons for this season in the Kingdom and thus walk towards the brighter and brighter perfect Will of the Father without ever considering the natural, worldly consequences that seeks to steal our righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
On the contrary Christian religion and church culture would have you believe that it is business as usual and that we have to just wait out the turmoil and for the global shaking to subside and that everything will return to normal and you will just have to continue to give more money to see your harvest, your “breakthrough” after the storm subsides. It continues to misinform the immature believer that as long as you “stay connected” to their grace by relationship and finance then you will have a covering of protection that should inoculate you from the Day of Crisis. What utter rubbish! Which natural father in his right mind makes that kind of conditional demands on his natural children for their provision and protection? If you are evil know how to give good gifts to your children then how much more so the Father in Heaven, wants to give you the Holy Spirit. The nature of the Father is to always rule for the benefit for those subject to his rule, never to place monetary requirements for love and protection. Is that the how the Body of Christ is supposed to function? We know that when one requires an exchange of money for love, that is harlotry right, that’s prostitution. So when the scripture talks about the Harlot being drunk on the blood of the Saints we are very keenly aware of where she is applying her trade, it is from the pulpits.
So what they are presupposing is that the value of your spiritual identity, that of being a son is measured by your continued financial support to their Ministry because they are the gatekeepers to Gods private line, thus controlling you by fear, fear of you losing the blessings of God not for a moment considering the macro picture of the Culture of Kingdom and its practices but remain myopic in their greed for survival which is the culture of orphans. They continue to hypnotise the immature with repetitious spiritual and technical terminology but lack the power to act in the capacity of a loving Father, who does not care for your money but wants you to learn and grow from the experience because at the end you are the most valuable gift given to them by the heavenly Father. After all it is only the Kingdom that will stand when the dust settles, personally and corporately, but keeping you in religious activity appeases their conscience and is their primary concern, not bringing you to maturity. This brings you into condemnation because you do not rest in the finished work of your big brother, Christ Jesus but strive to create your own soulish rebuttal for your righteousness, which is self righteousness anyway and that my friends is as filthy rags in His sight. When spiritual fathers are selling the bread back to the children, take note that the curse of the orphan has run it full course and the Heavenly Father is pouring out His righteous judgement on that abusiveness. 2 Corinthians 2: 17, “For we are not like many peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God we speak in Christ in the sight of God”. Make no mistake all of these pseudo-fathers will be revealed when the Father of Lights shines through the glory of his many membered, Household of Sons revealing their darkness and ignorance.
Let’s move on, I have already in previous editions clearly unpacked Hebrews 9, and showed you how the outer court is our soul and our spirit is now the Holy Place. I emphasised verse 8 of the same Chapter, which reads; “The Holy Spirit is signifying that the way into the Holy place has not yet been disclosed while the outer court is still standing”. This is fundamental in understanding the Culture of Righteous Rule of Sons. We never will be able to live by our spirits as long as we continue to walk by our souls; our souls need to be anchored down or brought under the rule of the Spirit (Naos). Hebrews 6:19-20, “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a High Priest forever according the order of Melchisedek”.
This access has been granted to all those that will accept this way of life under the Priestly order of Melchisedek from the Tribe of Judah. This demands a radical departure from soul living, and was made available for us by Jesus, the man. The “hope” in this context, is that the Father cannot lie, when He swore by Himself that He will have sons. We have fled to this truth and it has become our refuge, it has created in us a steadfastness, that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are more committed to getting you to your maturity than any other human vessel on this planet and will give you your inheritance when they see fit, not when some Church Board sees fit. An insecure orphan Pastor will never let you go because he is afraid he will lose your tithe and mess up his budget. Spiritual Fathers in this season are very comfortable to hand you back to the fellowship of Holy Spirit for safe keeping and not try and summon you to meeting after meeting just so that they can keep you busy with empty religious activity.
The function of a veil needs to be understood because it creates a context for piecing beyond the veil or the soul to enter into the Spirit realms of unlimited possibilities. Let’s just very quickly trace the origination of the veil and see what it means. In eastern culture virgin brides to be, would wear a veil over their faces to conceal their true identity and beauty and the privilege of removing the veil was only given to her husband on their consummation of their marriage. So the veil was only to be removed by the one that had entered into a marriage covenant with her. We see in Exodus 34:33 how Moses after spending time with God on the mountain would return with his face shining and it was so bright that the sons of Israel could not bear to gaze at him, he too then put a veil over his face to dull the brightness of the fading light that shone upon his face.
Now let read 2 Corinthians 3:7-18,
But if the ministry of death in the letter engraved on stones came with glory so that the sons of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of the glory of the his face fading as it was, how shall the ministry of the Spirit fail to be even more with glory? For if the ministry of condemnation has glory, how much more does the ministry of righteous abound in glory. For indeed what had glory in this case has no glory on account of the glory that surpasses it. For if that which fades away has glory how much more that which remains is in glory. Having such a hope we use great boldness in our speech and are not as Moses who used to put a veil over His face, which the sons of Israel may not look intently at the end of what was fading away. But their minds were hardened for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains unlifted, because it is only removed in Christ. But to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts but whenever a man turns to the Lord the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. But we all with unveiled faces behold as in a mirror the glory of the Lord(Spirit, the naos) are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.
The above scripture was giving me goose bumps as I was typing it out, because we have failed to see the truth of the scripture and in this context its application is so rich and valuable. We are the Bride of Christ and He is the only legitimate person who can remove the veil, and when He does that, then we with unveiled faces behold as in a mirror the glory of the Lord are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit. Moses represents the Covenant of Law and we have come to a better Covenant of Sonship as long you remain using the law as you method of understanding God the Father then you will always see things through a veil dimly. As a matter of fact the veil is the soul and because you refuse to live down that way of communicating to God then the Trinity can only talk to you in that limited way by means of shadows and types. Pre-fall Adam communicated with the Father, Spirit to Spirit and in that relationship there was no guess room, everything was in perfect harmony. Mark 15; 37-38, And Jesus uttered a loud cry and breathed his last, and the veil was torn in two from the top to the bottom. Jesus reopened the way in the Spirit by his death.
Now the Kingdom was inaugurated and ushered into the earth as per the prophecy of Daniel in that moment, it was not to be a natural physical Kingdom but a spiritual Kingdom first; because Jesus said the Kingdom is neither here nor there it is within you. It has come, it is continuing to come and it will finally arrive, physically. Now the seat of power and authority is within you. Let me explain with an example. The Judicial Statement of Power & Authority is, Jesus Christ said “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me”, now you go and make disciple teaching them all that you have observed me doing “. That sounds like the great commission right; well it is actually more than that. That judicial statement of power and authority is what constitutes the Kingdom. Just like how the Declaration of Independence is the judicial statement power and authority of American independence. One of the many statements in the D.O.I is, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”. The document that this statement is written on has no power, it’s when the American people enforce the contents of the document that power and authority and freedom is released. The American Constitution is written on the back of the Declaration of Independence, it’s the foundation of its political philosophy. The Bible is not the Constitution of the Kingdom; it’s a record, so that we might believe in the Kingdom of God. If you are going into the world without understanding that you are being sent by the one that has all power and authority, and that you’re delegated by the one who is the King of this Kingdom then you are not sent but you are out on a stroll, and the enemy will have a field day with you and your plans to spread the “Gospel of the Kingdom”. I hear frequently how Kingdom minister have a plan to spread the message of the Kingdom, by getting into government and changing that system from the inside out by having a “Kingdom Business” or “Kingdom Principles” and it’s called taking dominion or Dominion Theology. This is actually a very confused bunch of people who do not have a clue to what the Father is doing.
If after you have read Psalm 2, and still believe that you are here to change the existing government into the Kingdom, then the Kingdom of God is not within you, because at no point in this Chapter are we required to beg or convince or lobby for an inferior Kingdom to make us part of their Kingdom so that we can show them the Kingdom and spread it like leaven. The scripture is plain in that the Father is mockingly laughing at the vein attempts of other Kings and Rulers plans to overthrow His Kingdom because He has installed His King on Mt. Zion, and then goes on to say to the King of Kings, ask of Me and I will surely give the Nations as an inheritance and the very ends of the earth as Thy possessions. Now these questions must be asked. Was it the Fathers to give away? Did Jesus Christ ask for it? Did the Father give it to the Son? The answers to those questions are yes, yes, yes. So as Ambassadors of the Kingdom we are not here begging people to come into the Kingdom we are receiving those whom the Holy Spirit has already been working on because it is His job to convict the world of the sin and of righteousness and the judgement (John 16:8). We are to go and make disciples of all those whom the Father gives to us as mature sons of the Kingdom, we become spiritual fathers. This is Kingdom Culture.
We will pick up part 2 of this topic in another edition, please continue to study with me the present truth of the Spirit for this season. God bless you.
