The Mystery Of The 144,000
You need to see and understand the whole counsel of God as is laid out throughout scripture.
The mystery of the 144 000 end time final generation first fruits is a spiritual reality through the lineage of the Lion of the tribe of Judah Jesus Christ who himself is the first-born amongst many brethren.
The 144 000 FIRSTFRUITS to be presented by Christ to the Father during the final harvest which marks the end of the world are they which shall be revealed as the manifested sons of God.
The final harvest “MARKS” the end of the age and ushers in the Goverment of God through the governors of Judah which is the royal SPIRITUAL TRIBE and lineage of Christ.
Mark 13:39 and the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.
These 144,000 firstfuits are prophetically spoken of in Genesis 49 when the 12 sons of Israel – TRIBES – stood around their father Jacob, and notice he speaks about the last days
1 And Jacob called to his sons and said, “Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you what shall happen to you in the last days.
When he came to Judah, he said the following
8 Judah, may your brothers praise you. May your hand be on the neck of your enemies. May your father’s sons bow before you. 9 Judah is a lion’s whelp. My son, you have gone up from the prey. He stooped, he crouched like a lion; and like a lioness, who shall rouse him? 10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come. And to Him shall be the obedience of the people. 11 Binding His foal to the vine, and His donkey’s colt to the choice vine, He washed His garments in wine, and His clothes in the blood of grapes.
Shiloh is an epithet for “Messiah” in verse 10 until Shiloh come. And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.
Government flows through and operates through the rulership of sonship. This is a spiritual principle that must be understood.
Creation shall liberated through the final generation manifestation of the firstfuit sons of God as they are brought by Christ into deathless life.
Jesus said to me “THE LIFE OF MY SPIRIT IS COMING TO YOU AND I HAVE TO GIVE YOU THE GLORIFIED BODIES TO FULFIL PROPHECY AND SCRIPTURE AND TO BEGIN TO BREAK THE POWER OF DEATH OVER MY CREATION”
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation itself is awaiting the manifestation of the sons of God; 20 Because the creation was subjected to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of Him who subjected it in hope, 21 In order that the creation itself might be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that all the creation is groaning together and travailing together until now. 23 And not only that, but even we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, also groan within ourselves, awaiting the sonship—the redemption of our bodies.
UNDERSTAND THE MYSTERY OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL
“Have you considered the mystery of the sons of Israel, says the Lord?
Reuben was the first-born, but because of his sin the birthright was taken away from him. Simeon was the second, but he failed to hear the Word of the Lord therefore it was not given to him.
Even so through all of the sons until we come to Joseph.
Joseph was one who feared the Lord and walked in His ways, therefore was the birthright given to him.
Is not this to show you, says the Lord, that the birthright is not reckoned according to lineal descent but according to spiritual worth?
And does it not show that my favor is upon those who fear me and seek my face?
For I say to you, only those who look to me and trust in me, making me their guide and stay, shall be given the double portion which is the inherent right of the first-born.
And what is this double portion says the Lord?
Is it not first an abundant entrance into the eternal kingdom of your God, and secondly is it not an inheritance among those who shall rule and reign as co-heirs of the heavenly realm, sitting also in judgment on the angels who have been ministering spirits, and who shall continue to minister to the Inheritors, says the Lord?
For this is the double portion given to the first-born. But I say, the first-born is not that of the physical, but that of the spiritual.
It is even that which is spoken of in the Word as the ‘church of the first-born’ (Heb. 12:23).
The first-born are those who shall first enter into eternal life and then into the glories of the heavenly kingdom. For theirs shall be a realm that is much higher than those who shall dwell on the earth.
For those who shall dwell on the earth have only one portion, even eternal life. But those who shall dwell in the upper realms of the heavenly kingdom and glory will be invested with the double portion of not only eternal life but also the heavenly glory.
And they shall also have the double power of living in the heavenly or manifesting on the earthly, for doubly blessed are they and double is their portion.
For [those] who shall live on earth in the coming kingdom, even though they will not die, will not have attained to the realm of the first-born church, and thus they will be limited to the earthly sphere. But I say, if they are diligent and seek me with their whole heart and obey my every word, then they too shall eventually come into the heavenly kingdom and inherit a double portion, though it will not be of the same glory as those who have preceded them.
Does not the scripture say that the glory of the earthly is not the glory of the heavenly, and that even in the heavenly glory one star differs from another in glory and all are not equal? (I Cor. 15:40-41).
So shall there be many realms even in the heavenly, and one realm will be of greater glory than another. Now consider further that which is shown in the sons of Jacob-Israel.
As Reuben was ‘unstable as water,’ (Gen. 49:4), so does this show the instability of those who first believe in me but do not continue to ‘hear’ my Word which is the meaning of Simeon, and who do not ‘adhere’ to me which is the meaning of Levi, and who do not show forth my ‘praise’ which is the meaning of Judah.
*our lives must be presented as a living sacrifice that brings glory to God. We glorified God through surrender and obedience*
Even so do they lose out and forfeit both the earthly and the heavenly inheritance. But those who will ‘hear’ and ‘adhere’ to me, even cleaving to their Lord and Savior, shall come into possession of the birthright in its first phase which is eternal life.
But this life is only of the earthly inheritance and does not provide for an entrance into the heavenly realm.
This is not reached until we come to Judah who was the father of the royal tribe and the father of the royal seed of David. *this speaks of manifested sonship and rulership with Christ as a mature fruit-bearing functioning heir*
Even so I say to you, if you will let me pour out on you my Spirit that you might become to me a ‘praise’ in the earth, and if you will seek me diligently and walk in my ways as did David my servant, then will I raise you up to the throne to rule and reign with me, even on David’s throne.
For just as Judah was the father of David, even so am I the father and keeper of all those who are making themselves ready to receive the crown of glory which shall be given in that day when I come to reward all who have been faithful to me, says the Lord.
And now consider further, says the Lord. As the scepter belonged to Judah and the birthright belonged to Joseph, so shall those I raise up to myself be invested with both the double inheritance of Joseph and the ruling scepter of Judah.
And did not Joseph have a younger brother called Benjamin?
And was not Benjamin born in the promised land?
Even so does Benjamin picture the coming day or age when my people shall enter into their birthright Inheritance whether that be of the earthly or of the heavenly.
Those who receive the double portion and enter into the heavenly shall, like the name ‘Benjamin’ implies, be seated at my right hand as sons of glory to rule and reign with me.
Now is the time to give thyself diligently to me that I might make you rulers together with me in my own realm. For many are called but few are chosen. Yes, many are called, but few give themselves diligently to make their calling and election sure. (II Peter 1:10).
So give diligence, my people, if you would be among those to receive the double portion inheritance and also the scepter of rulership with me, says the Lord.
Did not Joseph the birthright holder have two sons?
Even so do these two sons represent the two types of inheritance of those who shall be received of me into my kingdom. The first, Manasseh, represents those who shall enter the earthly inheritance, for Joseph said when Manasseh was born, ‘God has caused me to forget my former trials.’
Even so do those who receive eternal life forget their past sins and past life and look to their Lord who forgives all the past and causes them to receive the gift of eternal life.
