The Gospel of the Kingdom: The God who Reveals the End from the Beginning - Part 1 & 2
Shalom dear Pillars,
This teaching is an introduction to future teachings on the Gospel of the Kingdom. In this two part teaching we learn some of the many ways God revealed His plan to redeem mankind in the beginning. Yahweh says He is the God who reveals the end from the beginning. If you want to know how it all ends you'll have to look in the beginning, Genesis. Notes for the teaching below and also attached as a PDF file for printing. Feel free to make copies, forward, or post to social media.
In Isaiah 46:10 God says he reveals the end from the beginning…
God is giving us a clue. It could be said this way, to understand the fullness of what God will do in the end it’s revealed in the beginning. Literally. Genesis.
Yahweh is so amazing and creative that he placed this amazing story of redemption in multiple forms and ways in creation and His Word to be a reminder to us of his covenant promises. We are going to look at some examples but there are more than I could possibly talk about in this teaching. You will be so blessed by this.
I believe the Gospel of the Kingdom must come forth. The Gospel of Salvation reveals Yeshua, the Lamb of God, but now the Gospel of the Kingdom will reveal Yeshua, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, our High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek. King of kings, Lord of lords, King of Righteous, Prince of Peace.
The Lord told me deliverance is like an onion, a layer being removed one at a time, but revelation is like an onion with a layer added one at a time or generation to generation.
With every revelation, God releases it comes with the power to confirm the word/revelation with signs and wonders following. There is a power coming to the church of God when the fullness of the revelation of the Gospel of the Kingdom is manifested through the church that will bring wisdom, signs, and wonders that our adversaries will not be able to contradict nor resist.
We truly are the best wine that the Father of the Bridegroom left for last. (Water Turned to Wine on the Third Day at the Wedding in Cana – John 2:1-12)
Two kingdoms are clashing right before our eyes. The kingdom of the anti-Christ is working at such a rapid pace to set up the beast system, positioning people to take the mark of the beast. The Lord said to me that they are working feverishly around the clock to accomplish this and it is because they know and can see (perceive) that the revelation of the Kingdom of Heaven is rapidly approaching.
We don’t know much about the Kingdom but we will soon know. God is raising many revelators to reveal what has been hidden for our generation which is the power, the glory, and the majesty of the King of Heaven and His Kingdom.
This teaching is just an introduction and the material for it I gathered from different resources, specifically author Sue Watkins and prophetic teacher Janice Sturkie, and also that which I received from the Lord and Savior of my life, Yeshua.
An expert from a book – A Survey of Genesis through the Lens of a Kingdom Scope by Author Sue Watkins Volume 1
Ever since God withdrew the Garden of Eden, mankind has anticipated its return. As the first century A.D. dawned, the devout practitioner of Judaism hoped that event was imminent. Expecting Yahweh’s kingdom, they expected a Divine King to appear and defeat their enemies. The One they anticipated was referred to as haMashiach (the Messiah).
Today, in that same vein, Christians hope for God’s kingdom. The average believer waits for Jesus’ return, praying for a “heavenly” kingdom of peace, longing for no more troubles or sorrows.
There is an element of truth in what has been believed and anticipated. However, the full measure of the truth is the Messiah-King has already come. Yahweh’s kingdom is already here; it exists now. But without faith, it is impossible to perceive the Gate (the Door) that gives entry into that blessed kingdom.
At the advent of his first coming, Yeshua came as the High Priest of Yahweh. He “picked up” David’s keys to the kingdom and the adversary’s keys to death, hell, and the grave. Then returned to sit at the right hand of Yahweh as the kingdom’s High Priest, to wait for the moment that HIS enemies finally become HIS footstool.
“The Lord [Yahweh] said to my Lord [Adonai], ‘Sit at my right hand, till I make your enemies your footstool.’ The Lord shall send the rod of your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of your enemies! Your people shall be volunteers in the day of your power; in the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, you have the dew of your youth. The Lord has sworn and will not relent, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek,’” Psalms 110:1-4 (NKJV, emphasis added)
Psalm 110, when read with Daniel’s vision of the Son of Man, solidifies the concept that Yeshua is already installed as the High Priest of the Melchizedek Kingdom.
“I watched till thrones were put in place, and the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire; a fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; ten thousand times, ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, and the books were opened... until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom. Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.” Daniel 7:9-10; 22, 27(NKJV, emphasis added)
Daniel 7:13-14, “I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. Then to Him (Melchizedek of Psalms 110) was given dominion and glory and a kingdom that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed.” (NKJV, emphasis added)
End of except
Daniel saw Yeshua being brought by the angels of heaven (clouds is an idiom for angels) to be seated as the King and High Priest over all creation and dimensions according to the order of Melchizedek. The disciples also saw Yeshua when He was taken by the same clouds (angels) that Daniel saw.
Jesus Ascends to Heaven
Act 1:9-11 NKJV 9 Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This [same] Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven."
Yeshua Himself confirms the passages we just read that He is already seated as King and High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek when Nicodemus asks Him, how are you able to perform the signs, wonders, and miracles that you are manifesting? Yeshua identifies Himself as the Son of Man that Daniel wrote about.
John 3:1-13 NKJV 1 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him." 3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." 4 Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?" 5 Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.' 8 "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit." 9 Nicodemus answered and said to Him, "How can these things be?" 10 Jesus answered and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? 11 "Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. 12 "If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 "No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, [that is], the Son of Man who is in heaven.
The God who reveals the end from the beginning
Isaiah 46:9-10 NKJV 9 Remember the former things of old, For I [am] God, and [there is] no other; [I am] God, and [there is] none like Me, 10 Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times [things] that are not [yet] done, Saying, 'My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,'
Pro. 25:2 NKJV 2 [It is] the glory of God to conceal a matter [dabar=word], But the glory of kings [is] to search out a matter [dabar=word].
Amos 3:7-8 NKJV 7 Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret [sode] to His servants the prophets. 8 A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy?
Ps. 25:14 “The secret [sode] of the Lord is with those who fear Him and He will show Him His covenant.”
The PaRDeS – a system for interpreting scripture.
Pardes – means the orchard you never knew. One word for God’s orchard: Paradise. Remove the vowels A, E, and you have P-R-D-S! The 4 levels of discerning & comprehending (interpreting) the Words of God.
1 Corinthians 3:6-9, I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. 8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor. 9 For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field (orchard), [you are] God's building.
Paul planted the word and Apollos watered the word with the word. Seed is symbolic of words.
2 Corinthian 9:10, Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness,
Proverbs 18:20-21, A man's stomach (mind, will, emotions, the soul) shall be satisfied from the fruit (seed=words) of his mouth; From the produce (seed=words) of his lips he shall be filled. 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
One meaning learned about the meaning behind the PaRDeS -
He starts with a garden in the beginning and He will end with a garden in the end.
We can see by looking into the sode (secret=hidden meaning) of Pardes many nuggets of truth are waiting to be discovered by those who thirst and hunger after righteousness.
This amazing and beautiful story of redemption is the promise to redeem all things back to Yahweh-God through Yahweh-Yeshua, the Eternal High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek…the story was written for Him and Him alone.
God hid His story in plain sight for all to see. That is, for all who have eyes to see with.
Eph 3:8-11 NKJV 8 To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 9 and to make all see what [is] the fellowship [stewardship] of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ; 10 to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly [places], 11 according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord,
1 Corinthians 2:6-10 NKJV 6 However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden [wisdom] which God ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him." 10 But God has revealed [them] to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.
The purpose of these teachings is to reveal two kingdoms, one light, and one darkness, and how and why they are clashing. The anti-Christ system of government is currently set in place and ready to receive its head, the anti-Christ. Then there’s the kingdom of heaven, the Melchizedek system of government which always has been set, fixed established. In other words, ordained as in ordained to bear fruit and that the fruit of The Kingdom of the Melchizedek, meaning King of Righteous, shall remain perpetually.
First, let’s look at how God revealed the end from the beginning. He made a Covenant with Himself to redeem mankind back into the family of God. God put His plan of redemption literally in His creation and the scriptures. That’s what we will look at tonight.
The story of salvation began in the garden.
Foundational for all future covenants - The Creation Covenant
After the fall of Adam and Eve God reminds them of His plan of redemption - The Blood Covenant – Adam & Eve.
God reminds them of the plan of redemption because it was written in the stars. The heavens declare the glory of God… Remember? (This is my thought – God reminded them)
Genesis 3:21 NKJV Also for Adam and his wife the LORD God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.
Tunics of skin = garments of salvation = they also represent the skin/flesh which is only temporary – filthy garments one day to be replaced with garments of righteousness.
God divorces Adam and Eve. In other words, He issues them a certificate of divorce.
Genesis 3:22-24 NKJV 22 Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever"-- 23 therefore the LORD God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
Side note: imagine God clothing Adam and Eve with the tunics saying, this is My covenant with you. I will redeem you but for now, I must leave your presence. I will return in your likeness Adam to pay the debt that you’ve acquired, indenturing yourself to your adversary. Your adversary is My adversary and I will pay the debt required to redeem you back to Myself but for now, you must trust Me. I must now banish you from the garden. Bye-bye.
Could it be that God was saying to them, I cannot redeem you now, but I will return in your likeness and then pay the debt required to redeem you, Adam, by laying my life down for you. I will shed my blood to settle y
