Programme: Anamnesis Prayer Meeting (Week 4_Day 1)
Date: Monday, 27th November 2023
1. “I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Rev. 1:9). The word "tribulation" is the means of entrance into the Kingdom while patience is for receiving the reward of the Kingdom. This means patience is the key to the promises of the Kingdom. To do the will of God is to enter the Kingdom through tribulation, but there is still a need for patience to obtain the promise of the Kingdom (Heb. 10:36). Apostle John was in the three phases – tribulation, kingdom, and patience of Jesus Christ. That means he still had more entrances to make, more dominions to take, and more promises to inherit. We need to keep moving to be able to obtain the promise.
2. (1 John 2:12-14). Apostle John could write to fathers because the term "father" is a promise. To be a father, one must be in the dominion space of a father. This means a father is someone with a dimension of dominion. The state of fathers, young men and little children are all levels of dominion. To each dominion, there is a patience that is attached to the Kingdom. So, one can be in the Kingdom (entered different levels of dominion) but may not have inherited the promise of that Kingdom. For every entrance into the Kingdom, there is a tribulation that would eventually work out patience. After one has finished the course of the Kingdom by doing the will of God, one still needs patience to receive the promise of the Kingdom (Heb. 10:36). Apostle John was in the last phase of patience that will make him receive the promise.
3. The word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ are not the rewards themselves; the rewards are loaded around both of them. They are the things that will take us into the reward. When one is being rewarded, they switch into their full operations. Both the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ are constants; they are given to take us to the reward of Eternal Life.
4. The word of God and the testimony of Jesus transit everlasting life. They can move from everlasting to Eternal. The reward (in eternal dimension) waits for the testimony and word of God. The word of God takes shape when it is being used by those who have received it. This happens when we hear, see, behold and handle the word (1 Jn. 1:1). We also engage in battle with the word in order to overcome with it. So, both the word of God and the testimony are overcoming tools. The brethren in Revelation 12 have both the testimony and the word; they overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony (Rev. 12:11). The "word of their testimony" is the word of God while the "blood of the Lamb" is the testimony of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blood is the testament in the New Testament (Lk. 22:20). The blood is also the book.
5. “And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” (Rev. 19:10). The testimony of Jesus is the spirit that prophesies. To prophesy is to show the manner of that spirit; which talks about showing its way. This way is the way of Jesus in His blood; it is a prophetic way of the Prophet called Jesus. The way is in His blood (a book) and it is His testimony. If the blood is a book, then it means it has a beginning and an end. That was why Jesus said He is the Alpha (the beginning) and Omega (the end). Things are archived in the book. The book begins and ends. This end is not referring to the end of God, but the manifestation of God.
6. The spirit in Jesus as a book talks about a way of life that is in God, loaded with manifestations of lifestyle. Inside that book is a loaded secret manifestation unable to be untied by Satan. This means it can only take a spirit (way of life in God) to deal with a spirit (Satan). When God takes prophecy and puts it in a man, such a man will drive a manifestation from beginning to end to deal with Satan. The prophecy is stronger than Satan or the dragon.
7. “Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.” (Rev. 22:9). This means there is something the book is saying; it is the speakings of the book. The book is fetch/gotten from the blood; this means the blood is the keeper of the book. "...This cup is the new testament in my blood…" (Lk. 22:20). The book is a cup, which talks of a container.
8. The bread and wine that Melchizedek brought when he blessed Abraham talks about the word of God and the testimony respectively (Gen. 14:18). “Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.” (John 6:54-55). This is not talking of being born again (new birth). It is possible that a believer has never eaten Jesus' flesh (bread) and drank his blood (wine). A person’s blood is his book. The flesh (bread) here is not talking about the first one that takes away the "sins of the whole world" (1 Jn. 2:2b). This is the flesh and blood that deals with "our sins" (1 Jn. 2:2a), that is, the flesh and blood of the everlasting covenant. Flesh and blood are what is made unto us as the oracles of God or the word of God. If the word of God is the oracle of God, then it means this word/meat is oracle and strong meat is Jesus’ flesh. The strong meat is the everlasting flesh. Many things mean flesh in the scriptures. Flesh, bread, meat, word, sword etc. all mean flesh. Blood is the book (testimony), while flesh is the word of God. If Jesus says we will have life when we eat His flesh, it means there is life in the flesh. There is also a life in the blood; this is because the blood is the life or soul of the flesh.
9. Flesh is an outward thing; that is where the testament hides. The word of God is the veil of the testimony. Testament is another type of spirit which the word of God is. The flesh of Jesus is spirit. When Jesus said, “Eat My flesh”, He was not referring to His physical outward man. He was talking about the spirit of covering or the spirit of life in God that covers. It is the veil that is called spirit. Flesh speaks of spiritual covering. It is from this spiritual covering that the physical body is copied. The genetics of those spirits is that they like to shroud or cover. So, they are like a veil or garment; this is why they cover. They have an attitude that does nothing but cover. They are also made up of cells. Flesh is not one thing; there are layers of flesh. God built flesh and kept on covering bones. This means it is on bones that you build flesh.
10. Bones and flesh make up the covering called body, and they are of different grades and kinds. What we see in the physical is how it is in the spirit. There are two kinds of eternal body: one was made two thousand years ago (the one Jesus wears as a man) but the other has been there (the one God wears). Jesus moved that body (of God) into the physical so that we can touch it. The boast of God right now is that He has a kind of physical flesh, and this is not just the one they had in the form of God. The reason the Word was made flesh was to prove a point that the Godhead can be as physical. The flesh Jesus was referring to in John 6:53 is what the physical body represents; this is the body of God in the spirit that has entered the physical man. The physical body of our Lord Jesus is the body of the only true God. The sitting of Jesus at the right hand side is showing the body both in the form of God and man. Jesus referred to Himself as the “Son of man” even as an eternal Son; this means He has not left man. The purpose of man is to project the eternal essence of God into the physical realm, such that it can be touched and felt.
11. "Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.  Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day." (John 6:53-54). One can spiritually serve Jesus’ physical body. This means that there is something called flesh in the spirit that is equivalent to that physical body. When the Word was made flesh, what happened was that He pushed His own body which he has as the Word into the physical so it can be seen as flesh and felt. It is the same body that was pushed into humanity, so it is the same blood; it only has its transaction in another realm (earth). Our Lord Jesus was a mystery man. When the Scripture says the Word was made flesh, this flesh was His flesh. This means there is something called flesh in the spirit; this is called covering. If flesh is bread and it is a covering, then Jesus was using something physical to explain something in the spirit when He said, “My flesh is meat indeed" (Matt. 6:55).
12. Flesh is spiritual; it is the bread/word that is meat indeed. This means the bread we are given to eat is word (meat), which means flesh, covering or veil. The physical body is a school for the spiritual. God wants us to see Him through the physical body. Blood is the life of the body; it services the body. Blood is a service tool for the body. Blood is a spirit and that is what makes the brethren. The Bible is the best alignment when it comes to knowing these things because Satan has disjointed everything. While preaching at Athens, Paul said we are all one blood (Acts. 17:26). Our skin may be different, but there is one blood in the world. Men who refer to racism are only referring to the colour of skin, but blood is one. There is no white-coloured blood; the blood of all men is the same. This tells us that it has been blood and body from the beginning, and these are the things Jesus offers as gifts and sacrifices (Heb. 5:1). The gift is the body while the blood is what came out of sacrifice. If the body is not sacrificed, the blood cannot be found. The High Priest offers bread and wine, which is also flesh and blood.
13. To offer bodies to God, they first have to be broken. This is why the ministration of the body of Jesus is the ministration of substances or things. There are things of the body and things in the cup. Things in the cup are the things the blood speaks. Things were found in Abel’s blood (Heb. 12:24). So, there should be a relationship between the body and blood. Blood is the life of the life. Flesh is also life. Jesus said His words are spirit and life (John 6:63). The blood is the in-life while the flesh is the out-life. When we eat flesh, we eat manifestation; but when we drink blood, we drink the inner life that will help the body to find expression.
14. "Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day." (John 6:54). When one has both the flesh and the blood, one has the potential for Eternal Life. It means one has eaten Eternal Life stored as everlasting life. The "last day" is the day when everlasting life needs to turn to Eternal Life; this is when God will raise men because they have given Him something to raise up (they have partaken of flesh and blood and come into everlasting life). The last day is the day for everlasting life; it is the last of the day for everlasting life to be raised. This raising is a quickening into Eternal Life. The "last day" is not when people are raised up from the flesh; rather, it is a day when God comes to quicken all things. The God who quickens the dead is the living God, while the Eternal God quickens all things (John 5:21, 1 Tim. 6:13). Jesus was able to stand before the Eternal God because He finished His course on earth. He submitted to the suffering of the cross and was about to die; that is where the Eternal God stays. The Eternal God always stays at the end of the book. Our Lord Jesus finished His testimony; that was why He said, “It is finished” (Jn. 19:30).
