It's this simple...........Expansion pack.

In Thy Kingdom Come and The Land series of messages by Ern Baxter this is what we learned....

At the moment that Adam reached out for the fruit and Satan's spirit of falsehood entered, God reached down his hand and took from His chosen delegated authority of the Earth
the keys of the Kingdom
until One came that could handle God's authority in a space-time world....

His Name was Jesus.
Until that time how did God handle things? Ern said : Through His designated authorities in the earth
Prophets............. until Christ came.
Hebrews 3:1-6 tells us that ..... Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And in Revelation 5:5
we learn there is only One who is worthy throughout the whole of heaven...the Lion/Lamb Jesus.
So back to Genesis 3:5 then. What exactly happened?
Psalm 24:1 tells us that
The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;

Yet, nevertheless something we see in verse 7.
Some gates were erected....some doors slammed shut.
God could nolonger just come and go among the people He had made.
Beginning with Adam and Eve hiding...through the Israelites hiding in terror at the bottom of Sinai.....there are now doors in the Earth that should not be there. Should never have been there.

Westerners have no concept of spiritual doors. In large part because of one large erected door. The door of the left-brain...the step by step understanding...the adherence to believing only what I can see,touch and intellectually get my head round. The advantage is a tremendous resistance to wide pursuit of the occult. The disadvantage is ignorance of the Kingdom of God and how it operates.

From whirling dervishes, to clearing your mind and creating passivity in Eastern meditation, to the practice of persistantly calling for your god of choice to come
whether as an African witch doctor
South American Shaman
Northern territorial Shamen in the Arctic circle
or spiritist mediums,
or the use of mind altering drugs.....there is always a calling on spiritual powers.

This is counterfeit. But it is a door opening!!!

We on the other hand as lovers of God, are invited to call upon the Name of the Lord,
to enter His Courts with praise, to lift up and bless the Name of the Lord Jesus.And He too comes amongst us by His Spirit. Sometimes with miraculous signs and wonders. Sometimes with a strong sense of His supernatural Presence. But this is all the same thing. Door opening!!! Only He is Holy. Anything else we may call upon as humans...we are told is not Holy. Even though it may appear to be holy. (The devil loves to manifest as a seducing angel of Light.)

  1. A prophetic declaration has been made by Jesus.
  2. We have been taught a principle by Jesus.
  3. We have been given a prayer by Jesus.

He declared prophetically that "The Kingdom of God is at hand!". This message was passed onto his disciples and through them to us. The principle was that the Kingdom of God is near us...even in our mouth. The prayer is the "Our Father"

All these things are door opening things. Psalm 24 :7-10

Lift up your heads, O gates, And be lifted up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! 8Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. 9Lift up your heads, O gates, And lift them up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! 10Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.

So we are all under the delusion that the Kingdom is far far away. But Jesus says: you lost it in the Garden. But you can have it back now! Legitimately. By calling on My Name. By making Me your King. In your hearts.The kingdom that you thought you were living in...the kingdom of you ,was never just you. It was the kingdom of Darkness. And if the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness. How big the deception. But now by making Me your King...You let Me live my Life through you. Just as before, in Darkness, you could not live independantly...though you thought you did, so now, you cannot live independantly...It is Me living through you.

That's why the Kingdom is near us...even in our mouths. We believe in our hearts. We confess with our mouths. and we are saved.
We believed the gospel of Darkness and accepted the Devil into our hearts...and were eternally the Garden. His gospel was you shall not die if you disobey God...but instead you will be like God able to be free...independent to choose between right and wrong....not telling us that instead the Kingdom Gates would close on us....and that at the same time we were accepting a virus operating programme that was absolutely irremovable...and its death effects on us would continue even after we received the new gospel of Jesus Kingdom, 2000 years ago.
But Jesus'declaration was that we can drive out this spirit of Darkness, by accepting Jesus new Spirit of the Kingdom. By confessing it with our mouths. By praying this prayer right into every last molecule of our beings...into every recess of our spirits.

Our Father, our Eternal true Daddy...not like the false one who operated us before,
Holy oh so Holy is Your Name....make Your Name even more Holy through even me,
Your Kingdom Come....Your will be done...through me, as even now throughout heaven it is being done already.
Forgive my sins even as I forgive the things that are the fruit of my fellow humans' wrong believing....fruits of their belief in an independant self...which is really the devil expressing his own seducing lusts and desires through them. ( "Hereafter we see no man after the flesh")
Lead me not into testing and temptations....pulling on my "independant desires and whims" but deliver me from evil. Deliver me from my own "landing places". As Jesus Himself was described as after being tested in all things, by the end of John's gospel the devil could find nothing in landing places.John 14:30 AMP I will not talk with you much more, for the prince (evil genius, ruler) of the world is coming. And he has no claim on Me. [He has nothing in common with Me; there is nothing in Me that belongs to him, and he has no power over Me.]

By using the tools of the Kingdom....our heart believing...our mouth confession
that it is Christ living in us as us

We are literally opening up the Ancient Doors of Psalm 24...that the King of Glory may come in.
Adam was made a Living soul. Dust...powered by the spirit of God's own Life.
But now in 1 Cor 15 :45 the Christ in us becomes a Life giving Spirit.The Body of Christ a fit vessel of glory...anointing...heavenly blessing and natural earthly fulness. Blessing means "heavy packed to the rafters fulness" more than we can ask or think.

Beloved......the reason God had to give us the gift of tongues was so that we can speak into being the mysteries of heaven. But these for instance that
Christ wants to live out His Life in us as us....are concepts so fraught with potential to divide absolutely wonderful or plain freaky to a western world which lives almost entirely in the left-brain.....that God had to get us speaking all this out without us understanding a blooming it stood a chance of ever being uttered at all...and not being filtered out by "us clever clogs".
