The visitation from our Lord JESUS was shocking to me as to the time and season that we, the body of Christ, is in currently. I believed that we are in the last days as most understand, but I did not know that urgency of God’s servants being sealed in their foreheads as present proceeding Word of God by which we all live.
In The Revelation of JESUS Christ that John had on the Isle of Patmos, he stated that in the seventh chapter that the servants of God would be sealed in their foreheads. The final sealing has been progressive in each of the levels of glory that the body of Christ has obtained in faith.
As we read in John’s epistle, he begins addressing the first level of glory going from newborn babes to that of little children. We know that the first level of sealing is that of babes in Christ that desire the sincere milk of the Word that they may grow thereby. These are the ones that have been born again of the water and the Spirit as stated by Jesus to Nicodemus. Peter having the keys to the kingdom of God gave us the plan of salvation in its beginning by being the preacher on the Day of Pentecost. When the people asked what they must do. Peter stated to repent and be baptized in the name of JESUS Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. (Acts 2:38). This first level of glory is that of those that are “born again”.
However, the newborn babes do not remain babes, but grow to the next level of glory by the leading of the Holy Ghost in revelation that JESUS is the Father. We see this stated by John in his epistle beginning at “little children”. Notice that the first statement regarding the “little children” is that their sins are forgiven for his name’s sake.
“I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.” (1 John 2:12).
But he addresses the second time to “little children”.
“I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.” (1 John 2:13b).
The little children have grown from newborn babes to little children by having the revelation that JESUS is the Father. JESUS is that Spirit.
We see that these little children have progressed in glory by the revelation that JESUS is the Father as JESUS stated many times in the Word.
“I and my Father are one.” (John 10:30).
“Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also. These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come. Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come. Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.” (John 8:19-24).
“They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.” (John 8:27).
They did not understand that JESUS is the Father, neither do most understand this truth today in most denominations.
JESUS is the blessed and only Potentate, the Omnipotent, the Almighty God.
“That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.” (1 Timothy 6:14-16).
There are many additional scriptures that prove that JESUS is the Father of glory. The little children have grown from newborn babes by knowing that JESUS is the Father. If you had known JESUS, you should have known the Father, for He is the Father revealed.
The next level of sealing in glory is that of young men, again stated by John in his epistle. The young men are mentioned twice by John; 1) that the Word of God is strong in them, 2) They have overcome the wicked one. These are the believers that have grown from little children to young men through the knowledge of the Word, and through obedience have overcome the wicked one.
This is the current state of the church in growth in our Lord JESUS. It is only through a believer offering themselves as a living sacrifice, denying their own will, and being renewed in their mind through the Word, that they can prove what is the perfect and acceptable will of God for each believer is that is essential for each one’s salvation. If a believer has obtained the level of little children in knowing that JESUS is the Father, the believer must then know the will of God for their individual lives and do His will that He has called them for.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:1,2).
That is why the Lord states in the Constitution of the kingdom of heaven that not all that say unto him, Lord, Lord, will be able to enter in. This is because even though the believer knows that JESUS is the Father, if they do not do the will of God, then they still cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven.
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:21-23).
When the Lord JESUS visited me while in Trans Mara, Kenya, Africa, the focus was the sealing of His people BY HIS WORD. It is not through any denomination, bishop, apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor or teacher. It is by the leading of the Holy Ghost into the present proceeding Word of God in present truth that we obtain the sealing as an overcomer, as young men. And still, there is a higher level that we as believers must obtain.
Our ministry team at Dennis Beard Ministries (DBM) are focused on the Word of God in this present truth which is the “work of the ministry” which we as the body of Christ are all called to obtain.
