"Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so : thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire." (Ezekiel 28:14). Lucifer used to be a Cherub who was set upon the holy mountain by God. The word "upon" is from a combination of 'up' and 'on' which typifies he was higher than the mountain. When Lucifer was formed, he was placed in Eden because he had formations that qualified him to be there (Ezekiel 28:13). This Eden as seen in Ezekiel 28:13 is not the "earthly Eden" where God put Adam; it is a superior one. It means before you can be in this Eden, you must have some formations that are superior to the formation of the Adamic living soul. As such, you must be a spirit before you can be in this Eden.
“Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.” (Ezekiel 28:13). The formations in Lucifer were represented by these stones, with each of them signifying something in the spirit. The stones signified the glory he was carrying at that time. The combination of these stones gave him the capacity to carry out the assignment that God gave to him. The gold for example was a sign of redemption. The sardine stone is red in colour and it signified the complete and perfect formation for Eden. Adam also had this ‘red nature’ and as such, his name means son of the red earth.
After Adam was sent out of the garden, it took a hundred years for Him to birth a son in his image (Gen. 5:3-4). Through the rest of his life on earth, he also had other sons and daughters whom he raised in his image and likeness for God. Those men and women were sons and daughters of the Lord Almighty. In Genesis 6:1-2, the sons of God who married the daughters of men were supposed to marry daughters who also had the nature of Adam but they did not. These daughters who had the nature of Adam had statures that were beyond the stature of Christ; they had everlasting life.
It is possible that in the days of Genesis, men would not have been able to marry without coming into a 'day'. Adam was in a day before he could give birth to Seth in his own image. The men in Genesis waited to come into a place of strength in order to have the capacity to raise sons in their likeness and image before they gave birth to them. This was because the men in Genesis were in the season of days and not years. The season of days begins with the season of the Lord Almighty. The learning of Christ is the learning of years. It starts with the good year and ends with the acceptable year. These men must have finished the course of Christ and then, come into the living realm or the realm of the day. The sons of God first partake of years before they come into their day.
“For He saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” (2 Cor. 6:2). The day of succour is the day of temptation; and the day of temptation is the day of salvation (Heb. 2:18). Salvation is a day and the "so great salvation" is in the day of salvation. The acceptable year is different from the time accepted. The time one is accepted is the day one enters through the veil from the realm of years into the realm of days.
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.’’ (John 3:36). "Believing on the Son" is beyond having faith in Him; it is a commitment of trust in the Son. A man who believes on the Son is one who relies on the Son and agrees with Him completely. It is the man who has everlasting life that can do this. Having faith in the Son is weaker because it involves seeing darkly (1 Cor. 13:12). Believing on the Son means coming into a realm where one has been able to see the Son and receive Him. Life will not be given to a man who rejects the Son. One who can reject the Son is one who knows Him and turns away from Him. The wrath of God cannot be put upon an ignorant man; it is for a man who has knowledge and then turned from it (Rom. 1:18, ).
“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thess. 2:11-12). "Believing a lie" in this context is not done out of ignorance but with knowledge. This happens when Christ has been painted to a man and yet, he rejects Him. This belief is tied to a passion that such a man has been joined to; and it therefore makes him unable to choose Christ when He comes. This belief has the genetics of love and connects with the law of passion. As such, it is not easy to separate love from this belief. This belief system is a death signature towards a thing; it makes a man want a thing at all cost.
There is also a belief that a man can have even when he does not fully understand or when the nature of the person in whom he believes has not been fully unveiled to him. This is what happens to men at the New Birth. There is a nature in Jesus that He cannot reveal to a man when he is newly born again. He has to take you through the trust zone so that you can begin to trust Him. Thereafter, such a man can believe on Jesus and be given everlasting life. Jesus has been built/raised against the things that we love. He is a hindrance to our ways or things which are according to the manner of flesh.
You cannot come under the wrath of God except you have proven to be stronger (in opposition) than the revelation of Christ and the righteousness of God, which is the everlasting gospel. People who have come to this place are those who can hold righteousness in unrighteousness. Truth is the revelation of righteousness; but anyone who is at this level can hold the truth in unrighteousness. Such a man can change the truth of God and cast His glory upon creatures.
"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." (John 3:18). Believing the Son means to hold the truth in righteousness. A time is coming when everything about the truth will be revealed, for God will prove beyond reasonable doubt what truth really is. When Jesus will be fully revealed, all eyes will see him clearly (Rev. 1:7). However, some will still choose not to believe on Him because they already have a program of hate in them against who God is. It is Christ that will show the revelation of God to men; He has the ability to show the manifestation of the Great God.
“That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.” (John 1:9). This means every man has a connotation to everlasting life. When every man is born, he has a right to everlasting life. When a baby is born, light (an impression in his soul) falls on him. This impression is an impression of everlasting inheritance; it is not what he will become on earth. This is why everybody's name was written in the book of life. However, these names can be blotted out when men do evil. This will happen when they have done the great death -- when they have died twice even to the holiest (second death).
There are things that a man can do that will be equivalent to seeing everlasting life by the judgement of works. When works are being done, it will determine what we can do when we see Jesus. According to the works of a man, the books will tell whether a man can or cannot take everlasting life. Some earthly ambitions that a man still has can be worked out in his soul to an extent that his name is taken out of the book of life. As such, we should not have earthly ambitions because those who seek to have a great name on earth are toying with death in their souls. To have a great name on earth is to have a great death.
There is an Eden in heaven (Eze. 28:13) where Lucifer was. God also created an Eden on earth; but there is another Eden that is to come (of the future). God did not put the Tree of life in the Eden of heaven because God gave the angels their reward when they were created. They never did works to come into the stature they possessed because they were created with stature and sealed as at the time they were created (Ezek. 28:14).
The first man on earth (Adam) did not have to do works to come into the Adamic stature; he was created possessing that stature. However, the rest of mankind will have to work because man has fallen below the Adamic stature as a result of sin. This was why it was never recorded that Adam walked with God because that would have been a lower dimension for him. What would have been a book (work) for him was to partake of the Tree of Life but he never did. Rather, his children (the rest of mankind) will have to first learn what God made him into (the Adamic living soul) and then be raised to partake of the Tree of Life.
As a result of Adam’s disobedience, God had to produce another Man (Jesus) to do what Adam should have done – as of eating of the Tree of Life. Jesus first did the works required to become a type of Adam (the last Adam-1 Corin. 15:45); He then did the work Adam should have done which was to get to the Tree of Life and partake of it. This means Jesus had to do everlasting life and then Eternal Life. Jesus had to rewrite Adamic laws, birth a new one and chart the course for a new order. Jesus fulfilled the law and rolled it away; He then took out Adam’s order and brought in a new one. As such, the only order present is the order of the Son of God.
The word ‘day’ in which God created the things on earth does not refer to literal days (Gen. 1:5-31); it was after God’s calendar and not man’s. As such, the garden might not have grown so fast in a day; God would have violated laws if it grew in such a manner. If the garden had grown on the first day, there would not have been a need for water in the garden (Gen. 2:10).
There was a seed time when God took seeds from each tree and also a seed from His Eternal Life to plant. There is the eternal seed and the incorruptible seed. The incorruptible seed is the everlasting word that lives and abides forever (1 Pet. 1:23), while the eternal seed is the seed of immortality that dwells in light. The eternal seed is an immortal seed. God planted this seed and converted every other tree to run an everlasting course.
The Tree of Life must have its own seed if it bears all manner of fruits because every fruit has its seed. For it to bear twelve fruits, it means that the eternal seed has twelve seeds (Rev. 22:2). The wisdom of God for growing Eternal Life is to put all the seeds together and plant them as one tree so that they can grow as one. Each seed has its own time for bringing forth fruits. There are twelve seasons under the light that the tree is exposed to. The tree produces one fruit every month and as such, there must be something that makes it unable to produce any other fruit till the next month. This tree is of the eternal world because we cannot find such trees on earth or in creation (neither in the present heavens).
Eternal Life is twelve trees in one because there are twelve manners of fruits in it. This is why the city that can bear it will have twelve foundations and its wall will have twelve gates. If there are twelve gates, it means that the water will go through each gate, resulting in twelve flows (Rev. 21:12). There are twelve gates because people will not all come from one gate. The gates link the twelve tribes of the earth. People will journey from all the places they are coming from, enter into the gate, go into the streets of the city and walk on that path until they get to the Tree of Life.
“In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” (Rev. 22:2). There will also be twelve manner of leaves because it is not the same leaves that will produce the same kinds of fruits. The production of fruits is connected to the leaves of the tree, which are for the healing of the nations.
God planted the tree and expected seeds to be in the fruit. Therefore, if God gives you fruit He is also giving you the seed. The essence of eating of the Tree of Life is to swallow the seed. When you eat the fruit, there is something you will gain; the fruit is for food, but the seed is for continuity because the inheritance is contained in the seed. Therefore, all things that he who overcomes will inherit (Rev. 21:7) are in the twelve seeds. We must therefore eat all things. When we have the seed in us, we will grow to become eternal trees.
The purpose of the water of life coming from the tree was to divide the tree. This water typifies the word that can divide Eternal Life. The water cut through the tree and divided it into two dimensions, having six fruits on each side (Rev. 22:2). In each seed of the Tree of Life is an immortal deposit. This means immortality is divided into several portions and it will take twelve months to eat them all.
“And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.” (Rev. 22:5). The beings who will reign forever are immortals. This is a peculiar service; it is a service along the course of reward. There is a service we ought to do for us to be rewarded but it has an opposition. However, there is also a service without opposition. As you journey towards everlasting life, you will encounter oppositions from Satan. But as you continue to journey and fully lay hold on everlasting life, there will be no more opposition in attaining the reward. No one will oppose you when you are serving at this pedigree because you would have overcome the devil. When you have everlasting life, you will abide forever; but you can abide forever and not reign forever. To reign forever, you must cross the everlasting dimension into eternity.
The light that the Lord God will give to those who overcome is a light for dominion (Rev. 22:5); it is the sense of the throne and the wisdom of covenants. Such overcomers are servants who are on their way to the throne (Rev. 22:3). The service that these servants will offer is not a type that will be learnt; it is the service of those who have already become servants.
The seal of the living God is put on one who has finished service (Rev. 7:2). Such a person will have learnt service until he is completely sealed with the seal of the living God. The devil has no hand in this service, unlike other forms of service where he can bring an opposition. One who is carrying out this service is already an overcomer and is free. One can “come” for every other service; but one must "come quickly" to carry out this kind of service.
“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.” (Rev. 22:11). One will remain holy because of the quick coming for something that will shortly be done. Such people will finish the curriculum in a shorter period compared to how long it will usually take. This is because they are no longer using the light of the sun. Rather, they are using the light that the Lord God gives. We need this light to serve God until we sit on the throne.
We have served with the sunlight; but it is now time to serve with the light of the overcomer because it is with this light that we will partake of the Tree of Life. Each tree has a work and as we eat each tree and each seed, we are partaking of each fruit until His name will be written on our forehead. This is the last seal or reward that will qualify us to sit on the throne. This was the reward of the Philadelphia Church which ensured that they would go no more out (Rev. 3:12).
To go no more out means that they will not come out for a lesser light but reign forever in eternity. At this point, one has gotten home – the place of the Father’s house where there are many mansions (John 14:2). Those who are in the season of everlasting life are people of God; but those in Eternal Life are sons of God. The people are those whom eternal inheritance will be given to.
It is a glorious thing to die with this understanding because this is what man was made for. We will partake of these things as we continue in hearing. Do not let anyone dissuade you from hearing; you should keep on hearing and doing what you hear. Anyone who keeps hearing will do what he has heard one day. The warfare is to keep hearing. This is because the salvation of the flock is in hearing. God can redeem a flock by just its ear; He can keep speaking to it till the whole body comes together.
