The Upward Calling

And Enoch walked in habitual fellowship with God;

and he was not, for God took him home with Him.

(Gen 5:24 Ampl)

 

The Upward Price in Yahshua the Christ…

God had revealed to Paul the apostle mysteries in the Spirit. In his first book He reveals to the churches of Thessalonica that which Yahshua – His true Rabbi, had revealed to him during his three years in Arabia, while he was on Mount Sinai, saying: 10 And how you look forward to and await the coming of His Son from heaven, Whom He raised from the dead--Yahshua, Who personally rescues and delivers us out of and from the wrath, bringing punishment, which is coming upon the impenitent and draws us to Himself, investing us with all the privileges and rewards of the new life in Christ, the Messiah. (1Thess 1:10 Ampl)

Later he describes this deliverance in Christ, by which God will rescue those who obey Him diligently, saying: 13 Now also we would not have you ignorant, brethren, about those who fall asleep in death, that you may not grieve for them as the rest do who have no hope beyond the grave. 14 For since we believe that Yahshua died and rose again, even so God will also bring with Him,through Yahshua, those who have fallen asleep in death. 15 For this we declare to you by the Lord's own word, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord shall in no way precede into His presence or have any advantage at all over those who have previously fallen asleep in Him in death. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud cry of summons, with the shout of an archangel, and with the blast of the trumpet of God. And those who have departed this life in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we, the living ones who remain on the earth, shall simultaneously be caught up along with the resurrected dead in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so always, through the eternity of the eternities, we shall be with the Lord! 18 Therefore comfort and encourage one another with these words. (1Thess 4:13 -18 Ampl)

This mystery and revelation from the Lord Yahshua the Messiah, was a great comfort and encouragement to the church of Yahshua the Messiah. Unfortunately many have not seen the grace of God, for those who will overcome, as much of a blessing, but rather as a false teaching and an escape.

Even in his last letter, which Paul wrote to the Philippians, after nearly 30 years of experience with the Lord Yahshua the Messiah, Paul had not lost his goal, to be one of those who will be resurrected on that day, to meet Yahshua in the air, for he says: 10 For my determined purpose is that I may know Him that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly, and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection, which it exerts over believers, and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed in spirit into His likeness even to His death, in the hope 11 that if possible, I may attain to the spiritual and moral resurrection that lifts me out from among the dead even while in the body. 12 Not that I have now attained this ideal, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of grasp and make my own, that for which Christ Yahshua, the Messiah has laid hold of me and made me His own. 13 I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own yet; but one thing I do, it is my one aspiration: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the supreme and heavenly prize to which God in Christ Yahshua is calling us upward. (Php 3:10-14 Ampl)

There is therefore an upward calling in Christ that Paul encourages of us to aim for. Even when he wrote his letter to the Corinthian church he wrote the following to them, saying: 24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So run your race that you may lay hold of the prize and make it yours. 25 Now every athlete who goes into training conducts himself temperately and restricts himself in all things. They do it to win a wreath that will soon wither, but we do it to receive a crown of eternal blessedness that cannot wither. 26 Therefore I do not run uncertainly, without definite aim. I do not box like one beating the air and striking without an adversary. 27 But like a boxer, I buffet my body, handle it roughly, discipline it by hardships and subdue it, for fear that after proclaiming to others the Gospel and things pertaining to it, I myself should become unfit, not stand the test, be unapproved and rejected as a counterfeit. (1Cor 9:24- 27 Ampl) Paul says we must run the specific race that YHWH, in Yahshua, has set before each one of us. We must run with all the strength that is within us so that we could win the prize of the upward calling that waits those who have been faithful to the very end.

Saved by the Resurrection from the dead…

Paul explained this same salvation and prize to the church of the Romans in this way, saying: 3 Are you ignorant of the fact that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Yahshua were baptized into His death? 4We were buried therefore with Him by the baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, so we too might habitually live and behave in newness of life. 5 For if we have become one with Him by sharing a death like His, we shall also be one with Him in sharing His resurrection by a new life lived for God. 6 We know that our old, unrenewed self was nailed to the cross with Him in order that our body, which is the instrument of sin might be made ineffective and inactive for evil, that we might no longer be the slaves of sin. 7 For when a man dies, he is freed, loosed, delivered from the power of sin among men. 8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 Because we know that Christ, the Anointed One, being once raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has power over Him. 10 For by the death He died, He died to sin, ending His relation to it once for all; and the life that He lives, He is living to God in unbroken fellowship with Him. (Rom 6:3-10 Ampl) The one who has been not only born of the flesh, but were also born from above, having been baptized, has partaken of this type, as a sign that we also will, on that day, be resurrected from the dead, just like Yahshua the Messiah was. With this hope we were supposed to be baptized into water as adults, for that is why Yahshua said: “Go into all the world and preach and publish openly the good news or the Gospel to every creature of the whole human race. 16 He who believes, who adheres to and trusts in and relies on the Gospel and Him Whom it sets forth, and is baptized will be saved from the penalty of eternal death; but he who does not believe, who does not adhere to and trust in and rely on the Gospel and Him Whom it sets forth, will be condemned. (Mark 16:15-16 Ampl) Why will they be condemned, because they were not baptized or because they did not believe? Those who truly do believe Yahshua’ words will do all that He ask of them. When we are baptized we to prophetically, as a sign, partake of not only the death of Yahshua, but also of His resurrection from the dead. Through baptism we proclaim that we also look forward to our heavenly home, on the day when the Anointed One will change our bodies into the same spiritual material that He now consists of.

To complete the full cycle, the apostle Peter says: 18 For Christ, the Messiah Himself, died for sins once for all, the Righteous for the unrighteous, the Just for the unjust, the Innocent for the guilty, that He might bring us to God. In His human body He was put to death, but He was made alive in the spirit, 19 In which He went and preached to the spirits in prison, 20 The souls of those who long before in the days of Noah had been disobedient, when God's patience waited during the building of the ark, in which a few people, actually eight in number, were saved through water. (1 Pet 3:18-20 Ampl)

Then Peter makes a statement and explain the spiritual purpose of the sign of the water baptism, of those who had believed, saying: 21 And baptism, which is a figure of their deliverance, does now also save you from inward questionings and fears, not by the removing of outward body filth, bathing, but by providing you with the answer of a good and clear conscience, inward cleanness and peace before God, because you are demonstrating what you believe to be yours through the resurrection of Yahshua the Messiah. 22 And He has now entered into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with all angels and authorities and powers made subservient to Him.(1 Pet 3:21-22 Ampl) The baptism waters, separate our old live from us, just like the people of Israel, who was led by the prophet Moses, was separated from the life of slavery and Egypt. Not only were the save from Egypt, but was brought into the wilderness, after which they entered the promised land, after crossing the same Jordan river that Elijah had to cross before he was translated and taken away in a chariot of fire.

Peter made a very interesting comment saying: ‘a few people, actually eight in number, were saved through water.’ The water did not save Noah and his family, but actually they were saved out of the water that could have killed and drowned them. This same statement again is used by the angel when he showed John, on the island of Patmos, what was going to come to pass at the end of this age, saying: 9 After this I looked and a vast host appeared, which no one could count, gathered out of every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages. These stood before the throne and before the Lamb; they were attired in white robes, with palm branches in their hands. (Rev 7:9 Ampl) Those who were before the throne of God praised God for the deliverance He had done for them.

Then one of the elders asked John who these in white robes are, saying: 13 Then, addressing me, one of the elders of the heavenly Sanhedrin said: “Who are these people clothed in the long white robes? And from where have they come? 14 I replied, Sir, you know. And he said to me: “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation or persecution, and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 For this reason they are now before the very throne of God and serve Him day and night in His sanctuary or temple; and He Who is sitting upon the throne will protect and spread His tabernacle over and shelter them with His presence. 16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; neither shall the sun smite them, nor any scorching heat. 17 For the Lamb Who is in the midst of the throne will be their Shepherd, and He will guide them to the springs of the waters of life; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. (Rev 7:13-17 Ampl) The elder also makes use of this same phrase, saying: ‘who have come out of’ or like Noah, who came ‘through’ the great tribulation. Were these people saved by the tribulation or through the tribulation? Did they go through the tribulation or not many have asked?

Elijah will come to restore all things…

This phrase has caused many to stumble, wrongly assuming that they were saved during the time of the great tribulation. Thus, they have already passed through the great tribulation time. Thus, they were taken up into heaven after the last seven years were completed. This could seem to look like this, but as Peter said about Paul’s writings: 16b There are some things in those epistles of Paul that are difficult to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist and misconstrue to their own utter destruction, just as they distort and misinterpret the rest of the Scriptures. (2 Pet 3:16 Ampl)

The prophetic words of the prophets and apostles are hard to understand, as Peter explains about prophetic scripture, saying: 19 And we have the prophetic word made firmer still. You will do well to pay close attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dismal, squalid and dark place, until the day breaks through the gloom and the Morning Star rises, comes into being in your hearts. 20 Yetfirst you must understand this, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of any personal or private or special interpretation, loosening, solving. 21 For no prophecy ever originated, because some man willed it to do so --it never came by human impulse, but men spoke from God who were borne along, moved and impelled by the Holy Spirit. (2 Pet 1:19-21 Ampl) All prophecy are like a mystery, they cannot be fully understood, because they were given under inspiration and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, until they are opened and unsealed by God or through another prophet send by God. We should rather look at prophecy as a light, giving us direction, but not always the specific chronological times in which event will play off.

Did not even the apostles await a time when all will be restored again, as is written: 21 Whom heaven must receive and retain, until the time for the complete restoration of all that God spoke by the mouth of all His holy prophets for ages past, from the most ancient time in the memory of man. 22 Thus Moses said to the forefathers, The Lord God will raise up for you a Prophet from among your brethren as He raised up me; Him you shall listen to and understand by hearing and heed in all things whatever He tells you. 23 And it shall be that every soul that does not listen to and understand by hearing and heed that Prophet shall be utterly exterminated from among the people. (Act 3:21-23 Ampl) Did not even Yahshua foresaw this day, when the disciple inquired into this same matter, saying: “10b Then why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first? 11 He replied, Elijah does come and will get everything restored and ready. 12 But I tell you that Elijah has come already, and they did not know or recognize him, but did to him as they liked. (Matt 17:10-11 Ampl)

20%20RABBI%20KARO%20ELIJA%20WELCOMES%20MOSHIACH%20DETAIL%20ELI Yahshua answered this question in two fold, saying: “Elijah does come first!” Then He continued saying: Elijah has already come, but they rejected him, referring to John the Baptist. If Elijah does not first have to come, why then did Yahshua then make an awesome sign in the sky of Elijah sitting in a chariot, with two horses infront of this chariot so that, at the mouth two witnesses every word may be established? God is indeed sending us ‘Elijah’ before the great and the terrible day of the Lord comes. Only a prophet can understand a prophet. Through interpretation of scripture we can only understand through our natural interpretation of God’s prophetic word, but by the Spirit of the prophet, we can understand, as God desire us to understand. Therefore, Elijah must come and explain all things to us first. Do I now claim to know all things? No, but can only reveal that, which I have seen in the Spirit and have been taught by the Spirit of Yahshua, while He spoke to me in the heavens.

I also have this one thing for me. When God called me on the 9th of May 2001, He said this to me: “I will make my eyes your eyes and I will give you the key!” Many years later, Yahshua did open up a great mystery to me, as He had promised, revealing the key to hearing His voice. During a 10 day retreat in the South of South Africa, nearly 7 years later, I asked the Lord when I would see as He sees, not in arrogance, but reminding God of His promise to me, on the day He had called me.

Answering my prayer, during that time, I was caught up into heaven over a period of many days, revealing and giving me understanding of those things, which many prophets have seen. I was given understating how Isaiah was able to walk naked for 3 years, prophesying to his own people. I was taken up into the heavens, and made to sit in the place where Isaiah sat when he wrote: 22 It is God Who sits above the circle or the horizon of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; it is He Who stretches out the heavens like gauze curtains and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in, (Isa 40:22 Ampl) After this I the Lord took me and showed me how it was made possible for the prophet Ezekiel to lay on his one side for a period of 390 days and then again lay on the other side for another 40 days. During that same time, I was once taken in the spirit, to the Vatican, and was shown this great city who sits upon seven hills. As I looked I looked through the eyes of Yahshua.

In conclusion, the Lord took me into the apple of His eye, and said to me: “Now you see as I see, you see the beginning and the end at the same time!” This was an awesome, yet humbling revelation, which has since started opening up many misunderstandings in the scriptures about time. Through this revelation, God showed me when He speaks to a prophet, He speak them to outside of time, yet looking through time. We have misinterpreted scripture, because we have tried to directly interpret what was prophetically shown to the apostles and prophets outside of time. Thus, a prophetic word is timeless and is fulfilled in cycles, until the end of the age is completed. Some prophets saw until the coming of Christ. The apostle John saw past this time, speaking of a time after the 1000 year millennium is completed. Thus, I can only reveal and unseal that, which was entrusted and given to me, His servant, for this generation.

The Heavenly Price for those who overcome…

When Yahshua appeared to the apostle John on the Island of Patmos, He revealed to him what must soon take place, telling him to warn all those churches of his time, giving everyone a warning for disobedience, yet promising them a great reward when they overcome. In and through these warning, Yahshua explains the punishments for disobedience and the reward of obedience to every particular church. God will judge each church and it people impartially on that great day. Yet no one will only be saved, just because they were in a church. God knows not only our hearts, but the very motives of our hearts, for the scriptures says: 12 For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power making it active, operative, energizing, and effective; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life soul and the immortal spirit, and of joints and marrow, of the deepest parts of our nature, exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. 13 And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, naked and defenseless to the eyes of Him with Whom we have to do. (Heb 4:12-13 Ampl) Even this too, God taught me in the spirit while I was in that place of judgment. I was allowed to experience how this judgment will be while I was in the spirit. All my thoughts were all ready judged and there was nothing unknown there. God is the true judge of the motives of the hearts of all men. Yahshua came to me while I was in the spirit and through the Spirit came to preach the eternal gospel to me there, just as Peter said: “but He was made alive in the spirit, 19 In which He went and preached to the spirits in prison, (1Pet 3:19 Ampl) All men will have the eternal gospel preached to them before their final judgment is given.

To those in the church in Thyatira, who overcome Yahshua gives a promise saying: "They will rule the nations with Him, ruling with a rod of iron." To them Yahshua says: "He will give them the Morning Star!" Yahshua is the Morning Star.

To those in the church in Sardis Yahshua gives a stern warning, saying: 3 So call to mind the lessons you received and heard; continually lay them to heart and obey them, and repent. In case you will not rouse yourselves and keep awake and watch, I will come upon you like a thief, and you will not know or suspect at what hour I will come. 4 Yet you still have a few persons' names in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes, and they shall walk with Me in white, because they are worthy and deserving. (Rev 3:3-4 Ampl) Yahshua warns those who will not keep being awake, but fall asleep, will be unaware when He is coming and will be caught by Yahshua’s coming like a thief in the night. But those who do keep awake and watch will be ready when He comes, they will be protected in the righteousness of Master Yahshua. They will be ready when the bridegroom comes, and will be found worthy to be caught away on that great day.

To the church in Philadelphia, Yahshua said: 10 Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance, have held fast the lesson of My patience with the expectant endurance that I give you, I also will keep you safe from the hour of trial and testing, which is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth. 11 I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one may rob you and deprive you of your crown. (Rev 3:10-11 Ampl) Yahshua will reward or give a crown to those who overcome through patient, expectant endurance, awaiting the coming of Yahshua. They will be ready when He comes and will be caught up into heaven. They will become priests and kings of our God, ministering before Him in His temple, being pillars in the temple of God. They will not have to go through a purification process, because they too are worthy. But all who at not caught up into heaven would first have to refined by fire, for fire test each man’s works.

We must test the motives of our hearts and ask God to reveal the true motives of our own hearts to us, before we are found naked on that day, and would afterwards have to be refined in the furnace. We serve a loving and yet righteous Saviour, who will cleanse His threshing floor, which His winnowing fork in His hand. Me must now decide to fall on the rock and be broken or He will fall on us we will be crushed.

The price, which God has set before every one who loves Him, is not to high that we should bring Christ down from the heavens nor is it so deep that we should ascend into the abyss, but what does the scripture say: 6 But the righteousness based on faith, imputed by God and bringing right relationship with Him says: “Do not say in your heart, Who will ascend into Heaven?” That is, to bring Christ down; 7 Or who will descend into the abyss? That is, to bring Christ up from the dead as if we could be saved by our own efforts. 8 But what does it say? The Word, God's message in Christ is near you, on your lips and in your heart; that is, the Word, the message, the basis and object of faith which we preach, 9 Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Yahshua is Lord and in your heart believe, adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart a person believes, adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ and so is justified, declared righteous, acceptable to God, and with the mouth he confesses, declares openly and speaks out freely his faith and confirms his salvation. 11 The Scripture says, No man who believes in Him who adheres to, relies on, and trusts in Him will ever be put to shame or be disappointed. 12 No one for there is no distinction between Jew and Greek. The same Lord is Lord over all of us and He generously bestows His riches upon all who call upon Him in faith. 13 For everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord invoking Him as Lord will be saved. (Rom 10:6-13 Ampl)

God has not made it unattainable for us to reach the higher calling in Yahshua, but has already paid the price, so that all who accept His righteousness will be saved on that great day. We have been sealed by the Holy Spirit of promise on our foreheads, which will determine on that day whether we will be saved from the hour of trial that will test the whole earth, as is written: 2 Then I saw a second angel coming up from the east, the rising of the sun and carrying the seal of the living God. And with a loud voice he called out to the four angels who had been given authority and power to injure earth and sea, 3 Saying, Harm neither the earth nor the sea nor the trees, until we have sealed the bond servants of our God upon their foreheads. (Rev 7:2-3 Ampl) God in His mercy will not allow the winds of destruction to start blowing on the earth, before all who, 13b and have believed in and adhered to and relied on Him, were stamped with the seal of the long-promised Holy Spirit. 14 That Spirit is the guarantee of our inheritance the firstfruits, the pledge and foretaste, the down payment on our heritage, in anticipation of its full redemption and our acquiring complete possession of it--to the praise of His glory. (Eph 1:13-14 Ampl) Hallelujah! All who have entrusted themselves to Yahshua – Yahshua the Messiah, by living a holy life, will at that time not be disappointed.

We must decide whether we want to be ready when the winds starts to beat against our house, testing the material with which we have build?

Will we build with God, just as Noah did in his generation? God is once more building a vehicle to deliver His people. The Spirit of truth from God is not confused, nor out of synchronization with that, which God is doing right now in the earth, but it is us who are unaware of what God is doing. We often misinterpret that, which God has called us to do and miss the point. We cannot afford to miss the point, for that would cause God to raise up deliverance from another place, as Mordecai said to Ester: 14 for if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere. (Ester 4:14 Ampl)
