Who are The Two Men of God

It’s a wonderful day we are living in. Today is unlike any other day that has ever been known. The closest day that you could say that we have ever had to this day was the first appearance of the Son of God in Jesus Christ. He was a man unlike any other man that we have ever known. He manifested not only the finest uplifted humanity that has been known; but He also manifested the fullness of what God is. Today we are beginning to have glimpses of another man who is the fullness of all that God is. We are beginning to see another man appear in this day as the manifestation of the Son of God. However, this man is not an individual man. This man is a corporate man.


I would like to make a very profound statement here. There have only been two God men that have walked this earth. Adam and Jesus! The reason for this is because they were corporate men. In the eyes of God we were in Adam and when he sinned we came under the control of sin because he was the head of our corporate body. We did nothing to become sinners! I want you to realize this statement; WE DID NOTHING TO BECOME SINNERS!!


When Jesus was born of a virgin He became the second corporate man whose name was Jesus, Immanuel, God with us, and when He died on the cross we died with Him because in God’s eyes we were in Him and when He rose from the grave to die no more we were in Him and rose with Him. The corporate man of Adam died on that cross with Jesus and when Jesus rose from the grave The Corporate Man of Christ rose with Him.


Just as we did nothing to receive our status as sinners because we were in the one who sinned, even so we did nothing to receive our status as righteousness because we were in the one who was righteous.


Jesus was the first man who realized the fact that He was the fullness of God in His human form. Today our spiritual minds are beginning to be unveiled to the reality of the fullness of God being manifested in us. Some people  misunderstand what is being said today, and they say, “People like Gary Sigler and some others are running all over the country telling people that they are God.” The truth is that we are nothing in ourselves. However I will say this: we have within us the substance, the being, the  essence and the expression of all that God is, but we are not all there is of God. I like Stacy Wood’s explanation of this.  Stacy says it this way: “The ocean is vast like God. You can take a cup of water out of the ocean, and in that cup you have all that the ocean is. You have all of its substance, you have the chemicals, and you have the elements. Everything of the ocean is in that cup, but that cup with the substance in that cup is not all of the ocean.” 


That is all we are saying today. We are not saying that as an individual we are the almighty El Elyon God who has created the universe. That is not what we are saying. What we are saying is, we are God in the sense that everything that He is, His very substance, His life, His nature, His character, everything that He is, is now emanating from our being.  We are beginning to see with the eyes of the Spirit of God, rather than from a human, carnal understanding of God. We are not the Father and we are not the Holy Spirit and we are not Jesus who is the head of the body of Christ. But we are a part of that spiritual body of Christ which makes us like Him. We are gods because He is our Father.   Num. 27:16 says,

“Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh,”

There is so much confusion today among the people of God, especially among what we call “kingdom ranks.”  The day is very similar to the day when John the Baptist began to preach about the Kingdom of God coming to earth. If you can imagine being alive in those days, seeing a man like John the Baptist come on the scene and begin to preach the Kingdom of God is at hand, and then pointing to a human being as he did Jesus and saying, “Behold here is a man who is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”  Even from the very foundation or from the very disruption of the world, He is that Lamb that takes away the sin of the world.  No longer do you need to  sacrifice animals.  No longer do you need to live under a concept of rules and regulations, but here is revelation from God, here is a man from God who is literally changing  everything that you have been taught into something new. Well that is the situation we are in today. And it is not that this is a day that is new, but it is a day that is new to us.

The book of Revelation, as you all know, is a revelation of Jesus Christ. If you want to understand not only the book of Revelation, but the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, you have to understand that it is a revelation of Jesus Christ, not just the end book of Revelation, but the beginning. From Genesis to  Revelation, the whole book is about the unveiling of Jesus Christ, which is also the unveiling of the mystery of God.  Now if you want to really have an understanding and an unveiling of Jesus Christ, you have to know where He is.  And if you never in reality discover where He is and where He has His essence, you will never be able to grasp what the eternal plan and purpose of God really is all about. You will end up basing your understand on a carnal conception of spiritual things. If you want to have an unveiling of Jesus Christ, you have to know where He is.

He is dwelling in a people. He is no longer “the Man of Galilee”. We have to give up this concept of the limited man of Jesus who walked the earth some 2000 years ago and was in the form of a man.  You see, Christianity has taken the Man of Galilee and they worship Him, and they sing songs to Him, and there is nothing wrong with that.  But they have lifted Him up in their consciousness sort of like an idol, and worship Him as He was when He walked on this earth, not really even knowing who He is today, where He is today, and what this is all about. We put Him in a manger at Christmas time and we put Him on a cross at Passover and we resurrect Him at Easter time. We sing to Him and we worship Him, and everything that we do is external. 

We must realize that we have to give that Jesus up, not who He was, not what He did for you, but the concept that He is something that you are not.  You must give up the concept that He is something to be worshipped separate and apart from who you are, because His whole message was, I am the Son of God and I am come so that you might experience the same life that flows through me. 

The message and revelation of Jesus Christ, from Genesis to Revelation is that same Jesus, that same Christ, that same essence of His being that He was, is now revealed in a people.  And you see, that’s why He said, “I have to go away.” He told His disciples, “It is expedient, it is necessary, and it is absolutely mandatory for me to go away.” Yet that concept in the Jewish mind was that when the Messiah comes, he would destroy all of their enemies. He would set up His Kingdom on the earth, and we would all live happily ever after. That was the main reason He was rejected, because He wouldn’t do that. 

He said, I am not come to condemn; I am come to give you life. I’m not come to  condemn the sinner; I am here to make them realize that they have life within them. So to really have an unveiling of this man Jesus, we have to have our concepts changed as drastically as the Jews did when Jesus came the first time, because our old carnal  understanding will never change. 


Just as the Jews were waiting for Jesus to come and destroy all of their enemies and set up His kingdom on the earth, most Christians today are waiting for the same thing to happen again, because they say, “There is this great day of His second coming. When He will come He will hold all of His good people up in the air and pour out His  judgments on the sinners, and then He will destroy all of our enemies.  He will set up His kingdom in Jerusalem on the earth, and all of us will live happily every after.” He didn’t do it the first time for the Jews and He won’t do it the second time for the Christians.


You see, we’ve lost sight – well we never really had a great insight into the purpose of His being, and His coming. So He told His disciples He must go away. If Jesus simply wanted to destroy all of His enemies and only keep those that loved Him, He could have done that in a human form and He would not have had to go to the cross.  He said, “I can call ten thousand angels to come to my defense.  You could never put me on the cross if I didn’t want to go there.”  But He said, “If I go away, I’ll send the comforter to you.”


The only reason Jesus had to go away is to take that old creation, that old mental idea of yourself  being alienated and separated from God – that is what we call, “the old creation”, He had to take that identity that you thought you were, He had to take that false image of yourself, which some call “illusion” or “old man” but that old creation idea of you being an individual that is alienated and separated from God, He said, “I have to take that image to the cross and bury it.  When I do that I will become a life giving spirit. Paul told the Corinthians, He said, the last man Adam became a life giving, a life quickening, a life  energizing spirit.”  Jesus said also to His disciples, “He that is among you shall be in you.”  He was talking about Himself. 

He said, “He that is among you, when I go away, shall be in you.”  Well what does that mean?  That means the one whom you adore, the one whom you worship, the one whom you would love to have stay with you so He could feed you, nourish you and take care of your enemies, fight your battles; that very one when He goes away will come back to you and enter into you and become your life.  “Great is the mystery of godliness”, Paul told Timothy. The mystery of Godliness is “God manifested in the flesh.” The negative of that is “the mystery of iniquity”, which is not some man called “antichrist” that someday is going to come on the scene, but the mystery of iniquity is that  individual who is alienated and separated from God in their consciousness. That is the antichrist.  (Read my article on “God’s Two Greatest Mysteries”  www.rejoicinglifeministries.com) I was an antichrist for many years as a Christian, not  realizing it.  It is such a mystery, but yet it’s a simple mystery with a little revelation from the Spirit of God.

Antichrist is that self ego that sits in the temple of God declaring himself to be God. That is what I was as a Christian for many years. You see; because of religious teachings, we try to take this idea we have of ourselves, these fallen human beings, and we by effort, by prayer, by reading the Bible, by study, and many other things; we try to make this image of ourselves like God. That is “the abomination of desolation.” 


The human personality that is alienated and  separated from God in their minds will always, especially if they’ve been regenerated, be trying to take that image of themselves and make it like God because that is the desire of their heart. Yet that image of yourself, that concept of yourself as  being alienated and separated from God is what Jesus took to the cross. 


Once you realize that the image you have had of yourself is no longer existing in reality, you are free to accept that the life you are now living is by the faith of the Son of God. Paul said in Gal. 2:20,


I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”


You are a son of God, but you are not expressing that in its fullness. And to express that in fullness is not by learning, it’s not by studying scripture, it’s not by fasting, it’s not by prayer. There is only one thing that is needful for you to begin to have an unveiling of Jesus Christ within you. God has to reveal this to you.


When God gives you this revelation, and you begin to realize by experience that Christ is within you, then you will feel it not robbery to be equal with God, because you will have lost that sense of your ego. That sense of self who is separated and alienated from God, and now you have become one with the reality of the essence, the substance, the expression of God within you.


Then you will begin to live out that expression of your new  identity. This is the New Creation Man. That is why we talk about “mistaken identity,”  because if you are not living as Christ on this earth by being able to love those who persecute you, and having  that kind of love and compassion flow from the depths of your being, then you don’t know who you are. You are still living, at least to a degree, in a mistaken identity of being an  individual, separate and alienated from God.


To know the Father in reality is to have Him living through you, loving through you and reconciling through you.  It is so simple!  And some today are fighting this concept of mistaken identity. Most are unwilling to give up that image that they have worshiped for so many years. You are not who you think you are unless you are living in the identity of being a part of the body of Christ on the earth. Most will say, “Oh, I am a part of the body of Christ but I am not Christ. Duh!! What if my hand suddenly  decided that it was not a part of me but was a part of someone else?  I constantly express myself through my hands. Some say that if you were to cut off my hands I couldn’t talk. Ha!


What I am saying is that if you cannot in full conviction say that Christ is expressing His life through this temple of man on the earth, then you have to be living in a mistaken identity. This mistaken identity can be very real, for I lived there for many years.  What makes his difficult is because when you begin to have this revelation, you still focus on that old identity that is still there in your unrenewed mind. The new identity, or the new you is learning how to live out of the expression of God and the more you do this, the more the LIFE of Christ in you begins to push out that old image of yourself. You begin to experientially then, walk in all the beautiful things of the Kingdom of God.


When you begin to really have an unveiling of the heart of God, and the expression of God on the inside of you, then you begin to see others as He sees them and you begin to react out of your spiritual nature and identity.  And you begin to realize that as people persecute you, as people begin to speak against you, as people begin to spread all kinds of evil rumors about you, you have such an essence in your being that cries out for God to bring them an understanding of His life in them. Then they won’t do that. 


What is so beautiful about this revelation of Christ in you is that you drop all of the requirements for everybody to believe like you do, or be like you, in order to be accepted. You see, you don’t have to believe like I do for me to accept you and fellowship with you. I do not require you to worship God according to my concepts,  because the heart of God in me discerns the heart of God in you. 


You can be in a false concept of God, yet if your heart is pure, and you are seeking after God, I can tell that. I don’t care if you are bowing before an image of a false God, or a statue.  Christians are doing that all time. Christians as well as Hindus, and Buddhists, and all of the religions of the world are simply a means and a method of man trying to regain his fellowship with God. Every religion in the world is based on man’s hunger for the knowledge of God. Every man in any religion or in any culture  whatsoever who is reaching out from his being for the knowledge and the awareness of God will begin to live that life of expressing God perhaps without even knowing that he is doing it.


We are beginning to enter into that day of the Lord, that eternal day where we begin to see all of  creation as God sees them. There is the substance of God, (spirit) in every man. In all of humanity there lies the seed of God. What is that seed of God?  It is the human spirit. You see, your spirit is that which was created in the beginning in the image of God. You were not created in the beginning a physical being. You were created a spiritual being. We even sing about it. As sons of God we were created in the very beginning in the image and likeness of God.  We sang together with the morning stars rejoicing over the creation of God. 

In the beginning, we were created out of the very substance of God. Created is really not a good word for us. In Genesis 1:27 it says “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God; created he him; male and female created he them” The word created here does not mean to make something out of nothing. It means to cut down. It is the word (baw-raw) In other words, we are a chip off the old block. That is why it takes all of us to be the fullness of God because we are just a chip off the old block.  When you understand that all that fullness is in you, you can begin to see  humanity through the eyes of the spirit.
