The Glory of the LORD has entered into the House of God!

This page is the second of 3 pages.

  • The pages are to be read in this order:
  1. The Upward Journey:  From Beginning to Kingship
  2. The Glory of the LORD has entered into the House of God!
  3. How are we to bring about true Unity?

Our recent Journey as an ecclesia / family has brought us to a significant place.

  • A while back we began transitioning from being an ARC to being a House.
  • We changed our name from Ecclesia Framework to One United Body.
  • This reflected that we began seeing ourselves as part of the one Universal Ecclesia.
  • We foreran this for the Universal Ecclesia.

The Universal Ecclesia has no divisions.

  • It is made up of parts that make up a whole.
  • It is not made up of parts that are separate in any way.
  • The parts are part of one body.
  • With each part doing it’s mandated work as part of the one body.

Separate Apostolic Resource Centers (ARCs) are a reflection of an older Wineskin.

  • Every wineskin is good in and of itself.
  • Just as every age in our journey in growing up into full age and stature is good.
  • But every Wineskin, except the final one, is also a transition into the next.
  • Just as every height / age is a transition into greater height and older age.
  • Until we reach full height and full age.

The spiritual age of 30 is full height (stature), but not yet full age.

  • We begin our destined work at age 30.
  • Jesus came out of the wilderness into Galilee in the power of the Spirit at age 30.
  • He began His work at that time.
  • Everything before that was preparation for doing that work.

Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was born.

  • This is mature age.
  • I believe that mortal man was meant to live 1000 years before dying.
  • This is fullness of age.

We, as a House, have forerun reaching full height.  

  • We have not yet forerun reaching full age.
  • That Journey is still before us.

What does full height (stature) look like?

“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,  for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,  till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,  but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—  from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”  Ephesians 4:11-16

  • The word translated “edify” means to build up.
  • It means to cause to grow up.
  • Grow up to what?
  • Grow up to full height.
  • As in growing up to a spiritual height of 30 years old.

How do we measure full spiritual height?

  • It is the fullness of Christ.
  • What defines when an ecclesia has reached the fullness of Christ?
  • When has an ecclesia has grown up into the full height / the fullness of Christ?
  • This occurs when that ecclesia has functioning Headship.
  • It is also the point when the 5-fold Offices have finished their work in that ecclesia.
  • The Fully functioning 5-fold Headship will then take over from the 5-fold Offices.

Here is what 5-fold Governmental Headship looks like.

“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
 Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”  Isaiah 9:6-7

  • The government is on Jesus’ shoulder.

Here’s a riddle.

  • What is on your shoulder?
  • Answer?
  • Your head.

5-fold Headship is in 5 names.

  • Wonderful
  • Counselor
  • Mighty God
  • Everlasting Father.
  • Prince of Peace

We know that the House of God is the Gate of Heaven.

“How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!”

  • We became a House of God several months ago.
  • As a House of God we are the Gate of Heaven.

New Jerusalem is full of 12s.

  • It has 12 foundations for its Wall.
  • And 12 Gates in its Wall.

We had previously built this ecclesia into a 12 throne Body of Christ.  

  • The Body of Christ is the House of God.
  • New Jerusalem is the House of God.
  • We recently built our section of the Wall for New Jerusalem.
  • We had already become a Foundation.
  • It remained to become a Gate.

Sons of God have Headship. 

  • We recently foreran entering into being Sons of God.

The progression of growth is…

  • Lordship
  • Kingship
  • Chancellorship
  • Sonship
  • Headship as Sons of God.

Now look at this familiar Psalm with new eyes.

  • Look at Headship.

“Lift up your heads, O you gates!
And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
The Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O you gates!
Lift up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts,
He is the King of glory.”  Psalm 24:7-10

  • We recently foreran corporately lifting up our individual Headships.
  • As individual gates we corporately lifted up our Headships.
  • And corporately became a Gate.
  • We became the East Gate of New Jerusalem.

Then the Bench of 3 welcomed in the King of Glory! 

  • We did this functioning Bench of 3 Headship.
  • We welcomed Him into both New Jerusalem and this House.

Who is this King of Glory?

  • The LORD strong and mighty.
  • The LORD mighty in battle.
  • The LORD of hosts.

The LORD Jesus Christ (King) is the King of Glory!

  • The LORD Jesus Christ, the King of Glory entered into this House!
  • This is a forerunning for every member of this House.
  • When you are ready, having been fully prepared, He will enter into you.
  • This is available to every ecclesia and every individual in the Universal Ecclesia.

The King of Glory has entered (and left) other Houses before this one.

  • He entered the Tabernacle of Moses.
  • He entered Solomon’s Temple.
  • He left Solomon’s Temple.
  • (He never entered Herod’s Temple.)
  • It is revealed that He will enter Ezekiel’s Temple.
  • Yesterday’s entrance of the King of Glory is a forerunning fulfillment of this.

We then did governmental action to reveal us as Sons of God.  

  • To all of creation.
  • And to other Sons of God.
  • We immediately saw a Son of God.
  • And he saw us.

There are others.

  • We were not the first.
  • But we did receive this revelation independently.
  • And enter into it.
  • This is a fulfillment on the forerunner timeline of Romans 8:14.

“For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.”

Who is this King of Glory?

  • The LORD strong and mighty.
  • The LORD mighty in battle.
  • The LORD of hosts.
  • The LORD Jesus Christ (King) is the King of Glory!

When Jesus entered in He entered in as 5 of His names. 

  • LORD
  • LORD of hosts
  • Jesus
  • Christ (King)
  • King of Glory

This is a 3rd 5-fold.

  • Here are the 3 5-folds.
  • The 5-fold Offices
  • The 5-fold Government
  • The 5-fold Names

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”

  • When the King of Glory entered in God drew near to us.
  • We had previously been drawing near to God.
  • This is what the Upward Journey was all about.
  • God entered into us in a 5-fold of His Names.
  • At the same time we entered into Him in those same 5 names.

“Hear O Israel!  The LORD your God is Echad.” 

The statement, “The LORD your God is Echad” is 3 names.

  • LORD (YHVH)
  • God (Elohim)
  • Echad

We recently entered into the name Elohim when we became Sons of God.

  • This is Headship.
  • Being revealed as Sons of God is a coronation in Headship.
  • It is also a Fullness of Sonship.

We just now entered into the name LORD.

  • This will likely be followed by entering into many compound names.
  • Compound names like LORD of hosts.

We also entered into the Fullness of Kingship.

  • This is the name King of Glory.

What is next on the Journey?

  • We will enter into the Fullness of being Sons of God.
  • We will enter into the compound names of LORD.
  • These are the I AM names.
  • We will enter into the name Echad.

I see New Jerusalem as the House of God.

  • We sit in the Gates of New Jerusalem as Kings of Glory.
  • New Jerusalem is the Way.
  • And the Kingdom of God.
  • And the Nation of God.
  • The Fullness of New Jerusalem is the Fullness of Holy Spirit.

I am asking, What is the fullness of the City of Zion?

“Walk about Zion,
And go all around her.
Count her towers;
Mark well her bulwarks;
Consider her palaces;
That you may tell it to the generation following.
For this is God,
Our God forever and ever;
He will be our guide
Even to death.”  Psalm 48:12-14

Here is what I see so far. 

  • We sit in the Gate of New Jerusalem as Kings of Glory.
  • We walk about the City of Zion as Sons.
  • We stand in City Everlasting as Sons of God.

In New Jerusalem we build two of the 3 things that Solomon was mandated to build.

  • Solomon was mandate to build the Temple and the Wall.
  • In New Jerusalem we build the Temple which is the House of God.
  • We also Build the Wall.
  • (And set up the Gate.)

Solomon is both a King and a Son.

  • As a King he built the Temple and the Wall.
  • As a Son he build the Palace.
  • We build the Temple and the Wall in New Jerusalem.
  • We will build the Palace in City of Zion.

Psalm 48 refers both to Mount Zion and the City of Zion.

  • New Jerusalem once fully built is the Fullness of the Spirit.
  • It is then also the Fullness of the Kingdom of God.
  • Zion once fully built is the Fullness of the Son.
  • And it will then be the Fullness of Dominion.
  • Mount Zion is the Beginning of Dominion.
  • City of Zion is the End of Dominion.

City of Zion is the Truth. 

  • Man’s Dominion is the Truth of Dominion!
  • YHVH gave Dominion to Man.
  • Many others have usurped that Dominion for a Season.
  • We have seen that that season has come to an end.
  • We have entered into that Dominion.
  • We have possessed that Dominion in heaven.
  • We will come to a Fullness of that Dominion in Heaven.
  • Then we will do the work of enforcing that Dominion on the Earth.
  • On earth as it is in heaven!
  • This is a glimpse into what it means to Walk about Zion as Sons.

What does it look like to fully stand in Headship in City Everlasting? 

  • What does the Fullness of City Evelasting look like?
  • It is the fullness of the Father.
  • It is never ending increasing (Everlasting) Fullness.
  • Fullness of Peace and the Government of God.
  • It is Everlasting Majesty!
