After eons of planning, Jesus the Captain of the Elohim, was finally born onto the earth. This great event completed the first step in his perfecting: his physical conception, gestation, and birth.
Jesus was born at Bethlehem which means “house of bread,” for Jesus was to become the “bread of life” for all his Elohim brothers. Thus Mary laid him in a manger, where the livestock are typically fed. And laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
The inn which refused to house Jesus Christ represents the established religious structure of his day. There was no room for Jesus in the traditional religious rituals of man, and the situation is the same today. There is no room for the begetting of God’s Sons amongst the carnal doctrines of Modern Christianity. The riotous, the selfish, the adulterous, and the haughty, can all get clean sheets every Sunday. But the Sons of God will be birthed from young virgins, squatting in a barn.
Most of the Elohim who live upon the earth are ravenously driven by their Adamic heritage, the curses of Eden. Their feet are swift to sin, their minds clouded with Satanic infusion.
Jesus did not have this problem. Without the fallen Adamic nature, the young Jesus was raised in sinless peace and obedience. And he went down with them [his parents], and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them.
As a boy, the spirit of Jesus was the same as for all his Elohim brethren. This can be seen by comparing his development with that of John the Baptist. Jesus: The child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him. John the Baptist: The child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel. The spiritual condition of these two boys was the same, and neither had all the fullness of God.
As a child, Jesus recognized that there was more to him than just the physical boy of Nazareth. And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?Thus he spent his time wondering about his destiny, and searching the mysteries of the spirit realm. And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
As an adolescent, Jesus was still spiritually incomplete, and his neighbors later testified of this. They were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? Is not this the carpenter’s son? Except for the absence of sin, Jesus’ formative years were similar to yours. And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
Jesus lived with the same limitations as you, until his thirtieth birthday. Jesus was the Captain of the Elohim, made flesh. And about him swirled the plan of God, to bring forth begotten Sons.
As Jesus approached thirty years of age the anointing of God fell on his cousin, John the Baptist. Once again the thriving work of God bypassed the established church structure of the day. Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.
John’s teaching was an amazing departure from the Levitical Law that had been practiced for 1,400 years. John preached a new doctrine, one of individual perfection. No longer did people have to wait for the yearly, national atonement of sins by the Levitical high priest. John taught that soon, each individual person would be enabled to enter into a new spiritual habitation. This new spirit realm he called the “Kingdom of Heaven.” In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, and saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
The doorway to this astounding kingdom, or state of being, was symbolized by water baptism. And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
It has long been assumed that the baptism of Jesus was nothing more than an anointing for his ministry. But water baptism is not a symbol of impending ministry. It is the symbol of new life.Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. The people that John baptized were not hoping for a ministry. They were drawn to the hope of spiritual immortality. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection.
When Jesus came to the Jordan river to be baptized, John said, I have need to be baptized of thee. Was John needing an anointing for ministry? No, in fact, John already had an anointing from God for his earthly ministry. John was not asking for a ministry, he was yearning for spiritual life.
Water baptism symbolizes spiritual conception, the acquisition of spirit life by individual men and women. This is the only possible entrance into Sonship. John called it the “Kingdom of Heaven.”And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.
At thirty years old, Jesus came to the Jordan river to be baptized by John. Jesus had been led to this precise instant to fulfill his destiny at the crossroads of time. And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.
As Jesus waded from the Jordan river, the masculine spirit of God overshadowed him. At that moment, the feminine spirit in Jesus conceived to the spiritual genetics of his Father, and he became the spiritual Son of God. And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
Conception is a momentary occurrence, the immediate presence of new life, and the beginning of gestation. But unlike you, Jesus did not have the curses of Eden operating in his life, and he was not clouded by the Satanic influence of the carnal mind. At his spiritual conception there was no fleshly “veil” to block his vision, and the heavenly realms simply opened to his spirit. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him.
The English word born has been translated from the Greek word, gennao. Gennao is frequently misunderstood and normally means, “to be born; to be begotten.” Therefore also that holy thing which shall be born (gennao) of thee shall be called the Son of God.
But gennao is much broader than just natural “birth.” Gennao can be spiritual as well as physical. Which were born (gennao), not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.Gennao is the inception of physical or spirit life, the infusion of a new beginning. For in Christ Jesus I have begotten (gennao) you through the gospel. Thus gennao can also mean “conception,” and every conception is the beginning of a new life. Fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived (gennao) in her is of the Holy Ghost.
When gennao occurs, a new life is suddenly present, where none existed previously. With a spiritual gennao, you become a new spirit being, a new entity “conceived” of God. This is what happened to Jesus at his baptism. He conceived to immortal perfection and entered the realm of Sonship. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born (gennao) when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born (gennao)?
John had prophesied that the Kingdom of Heaven (Sonship), was at hand, and Jesus proved it. At his baptism, Jesus conceived a new spirit life and entered the spiritual realm called the Kingdom of God. This kingdom can only be accessed by a second, spiritual birth. Jesus then testified of what had happened inside him. He spoke from his own experience. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born (gennao) again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Jesus suddenly realized that after a man is born of flesh, he must then be born of the spirit. That which is born (gennao) of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born (gennao) of the Spirit is spirit. Jesus said that without a second, spiritual conception, no man can enter the habitation called “the Kingdom of God,” and this applied even to himself. Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born (gennao) of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
At his spiritual conception, Jesus made the first incursion into the Kingdom of Heaven. He opened the matrix. Prior to his baptism, this spiritual habitation was not available to the people of planet earth. Sonship and the Kingdom of Heaven first became a reality, only after Jesus was baptized by John. And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force as a precious prize. Matthew 11:12 (Amplified).
