Re: The Divine Nature Attitude of the New Creation
By Blake Higginbotham
I woke up this morning with the thought that everything that man makes or builds is primarily a testimony of his genius or a monument to his ingenuity; but everything that Yahweh has created or made, speaks of who He is in the Glory of His creation!
Some people associate ‘The Kingdom’ with ‘The Garden Life’ and they believe that the close, personal and intimate relationship that Adam had with Yahweh, speaks of the reality of a state of being with Him. That said, others have been indoctrinated contrary to the truth concerning ‘The Kingdom’ or what it means to eat from the tree of Life, and have rather partaken of the ‘Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil.’ Consequently, they have lost their way as it pertains to original intent and divine purpose. The Kingdom is not about going back, going up, or a gold city coming down. It is about seeing and entering that which was ours all along. Simply put, we are presently remembering who we were in creation before formation, and from a position of rest and peace, we are living out of eternity.
I am reminded of something that an old apostle shared with me recently.
“The End is same as the Beginning” fnb
Many years ago I saw something that changed my whole perspective concerning the Kingdom.
Note: I saw a picture of an upside down tree that was rooted in Heaven. Its branches, limbs and fruit hung downward. The fruit was reachable to everybody on earth, and all we had to do was reach up to partake of it. You see, everything in creation is a direct representation of what exists in the Spirit, and when we are the praise of His Glory, the mountains and the hills break forth into singing, and the trees of the field clap their hands.
Isaiah 55:12 “For you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
I have come to understand that man’s best attempt to manufacture or duplicate the wonders of nature are an exercise in futility and at best artificial. Man, apart from Yahweh’s divine design, becomes the center of his own universe, and everything he is revolves around his ego. Man without a sense of origin and destiny is lost, and easily distracted as the quest for purpose in life is never ending.

Everything that Yahweh created is both good and perfect. All of creation works in concert and perfect harmony from the sub-atomic level to all things visible throughout the universe. Nothing works contrary to His divine design, and it is self-sustaining, self-supporting and self-replenishing for the most part. Case in point, the Earth is a living planet that sustains itself based on the divine design of Yahweh. He created everything in our solar system to work in concert with life on Earth. The distance of the Sun from the Earth is such that it produces just enough energy, warmth and life to support and replenish this planet. If it were not for the placement and position of the Sun as the center of our Solar System, life on Earth would cease to exist. Man without Yahweh is a destructive creature and when he tampers with Yahweh’s divine design he is saying that I am god, and I will improve upon perfection. Man always creates things in his own image and after his likeness which testifies to his finite, existential existence. When anything in nature is tampered with it takes away from something else, and if it is permanently altered, it can and will result in something less than Yahweh’s original intent or divine design.
The truth is Yahweh’s Order, Government and Law is built into everything He has created. You see, the enemy of our soul knows how to divide and separate us from Yahweh’s original intent, and he is constantly trying to force us to consider “Hath God Said” He is relentless in his attack against our minds and ruthless in his assault against our lives. He is always looking for a way to take advantage of our naivety and ignorance. He is the master of disinformation and deception, and truth is not in him.
We must deal in truth with our own hearts concerning everything that does not represent Yahweh’s New Creation, and repent and be converted as it pertains to knowing who we really are in Him. Under the first man Adam all men died; but under the last man Adam all men live.
1 Corinthians 15:20-28 But now Messiah is risen from the dead, and has become the first-fruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22For as in Adam all die, even so in Messiah all shall be made alive. 23But each one in his own order: Messiah the firstfruits, afterward those who are Messiah’s at His coming. 24Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to Yahweh the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. 25For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. 26The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. 27For “He has put all things under His feet.”But when He says “all things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. 28Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that Yahweh may be all in all.
2 Corinthians 5:16-19 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Messiah according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17Therefore, if anyone is in Messiah, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18Now all things are of Yahweh, who has reconciled us to Himself through Yahshua Messiah, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19that is, that Yahweh was in Messiah reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
