This is where this study gets even more interesting. Even though no one has commented and not many seem to be following what I am presenting here, I pray there are at least a few that are taking the time to at least consider its implications, and see how it is biblically supported and very coherent with scripture. I really don’t have a choice, whether anyone wants to look at this or not, I am compelled to at least give the opportunity for it to be considered.
May we all have eyes to see and ears to hear.
Sons to Glory book by Paul Jablonowski
Part 2 - Acting Like Mature Sons - Apostles
Laboring & Giving Birth
Marvin Byers writes:
The Father's desire is not merely to produce babes in Christ; He is also looking for mature sons who will bring His glory to a needy world. The life of Christ is formed in us through "travail," and travail involves suffering and sorrow. So, this is why Paul mentions that "our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us" (Rom. 8:18 NIV). That travail will bring forth that glory... The concept of giving birth to Christ's life in a spiritual sense is a glorious hope set before us. It refers to a level of spiritual maturity where we become channels through which the fullness of His life flows to others. This is a theme that is repeated many times throughout the Bible. This is why the Bible refers so often to travail, intercession, and giving birth.25
"For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. And not only they, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body" (Rom. 8:22,23).
There is a birthing process to reveal the character of Jesus through His mature sons to all of creation. In order to bring forth new life, labor (pain) and birth (a sudden change) is required. When a baby is born, it goes through tremendous amounts of biological and chemical changes. For one, it starts breathing air for the first time and eating from the mouth instead of the umbilical cord. Likewise, during this spiritual birthing process, there are some major changes that take place suddenly. "And the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to His temple, even the messenger of the covenant (Jesus the Christ)." (Mal. 3:1) The Lord's "suddenlies" may take years to fully grasp (just like it did when he was born the first time), but from heaven's perspective it is like turning on a water faucet of God's glory. If the hose is not strong enough to sustain the sudden thrust and continuous flow of water it will burst. Likewise, if we are not prepared vessels through humility and brokenness, we will burst and not be able to be used by the Lord to contain His glory that is coming. Jesus uses a similar analogy referring to us as wineskins (Matt. 9:17).
Jesus also says that "whoever does the will of God is my brother and My sister and mother" (Mark 3:35). So we can all become His mother, or vessels through which the Father can use to birth His life. As mentioned previously, Mary's life is one of the greatest examples in Scripture of a vessel through which God was able to birth His purposes. A detailed study of Mary's life will reveal many godly characteristics, but one that shines through the most is her faith in believing God's promise to her. She simply trusted that God was able to bring to pass in her what was impossible to happen in the natural. She believed God and knew Him intimately, thus revealing her spiritual maturity or Sonship. Listen how Mary responded to the Lord:
"The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God... Then Mary said, "Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word."" (Luke 1:35,38)
Believing this promise did not come without suffering and sorrow and reproach. I am sure that Mary labored spiritually as much as she did naturally. How many of Mary's family and friends do you think actually believed along with her that her pregnancy was really from the Holy Spirit??? In that time period, if you were pregnant out of wedlock it was bad news! You were a social outcast. Also, it was a great step of faith for Joseph to take Mary as his wife. In the natural, he was admitting that he was the father of the child out of wedlock. Mary and Joseph were like Moses who "esteemed the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt" (Heb. 11:26), and they were also entrusted with the secrets of the Lord.
Also, John 16 explains how the first disciples were used as "mothers" to birth the life of Christ to their generation. He told them, "it is to your advantage that I go away" (vs. 7) so that you can give birth! Jesus compares them to a woman in labor who is sorrowful during her labor, but rejoices when new life is birthed and forgets her initial anguish. "Most assuredly, I say to you that you (disciples) will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy. A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you." (vs. 20-22)
This explanation of the woman in labor is the answer that Jesus gives to the riddle that is mentioned three times just before in verses 16-19. This riddle gives us insight that it was Jesus Himself who was being birthed by the disciples. Jesus says, "A little while, and you will not see Me (because He was about to be crucified); and again a little while, and you will see Me (not because of His return, but), because I go to the Father (which will cause you to sorrow and labor)." Jesus left them right at the time when they had realized that He was the answer for all of fallen humanity! This caused the disciples to travail and labor like a woman in birth so that Jesus could be seen again through them. So, Jesus was seen again not because of His return, but because His character and life was seen through the disciples as a result of travail and a birth.
There are many other women throughout the Scriptures who through faith and patience were able to be used by God to birth His purposes in their generation: Sarah, Hannah, and Elizabeth just to name a few. However, one of the most dramatic and climactic births in the Bible is one that is occurring in our generation, and it is found in Revelation chapter 12. Here we find "a woman clothed with the sun (glory of God), with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars (governmental authority). Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth... And she bore a male child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught up to God and to His throne." (Rev. 12:2,3,5)
This birth sounds so much like the birth of Jesus that many scholars attribute this to Mary birthing Jesus. However, John clearly says that the book of Revelation is to show us things that will take place in the future (Rev. 1:1). Although we can compare this birth to the natural birth of Jesus, this Scripture is more accurately a reference to the spiritual birth of Jesus through a spiritual mother who is the Church - the Jerusalem from above - or Zion.
Sarah (the Bride of Christ) Giving Birth
Revelation chapter 12 is the clearest description of the Bride of Christ giving birth to the life of Jesus. Therefore, let's prayerfully read it again in its entirety with this imagery in mind:
1) the woman = the Bride of Christ;
2) the man child = Jesus manifested IN 144,000 mature sons of God; and
3) the dragon = Satan.
1-2 "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3-4 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne.
6-9 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10-12 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night." And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them.
12-13 Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. 14-17 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." (King James Version)
Since Satan can only counterfeit what God is doing, we should not be surprised to find another woman in Revelation 17 who also represents a group of people. This woman is "Babylon the harlot" who is also a mother - "the mother of harlots and of the abominations of the earth" (Rev. 17:5).
At the same time that the Bride of Christ is birthing the mature sons of God bringing liberty and life, the Great Harlot will be birthing mature sons of the flesh who will bring bondage and death. Isaiah 60 explains how great glory can cover the earth, while at the same time deep darkness also covers the earth. Jesus compares the time of His Second Coming to a woman in labor by saying that wars, famines, and earthquakes are all the beginning of "birth pangs" (Matt 24:8).
Also, Paul explains within the context of Jesus' return that: "when they cry, 'peace and safety,' then sudden destruction will come upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman" (2 Thess. 3:8).
Therefore, a comparison can be made of these two women:
(1) The Bride of Christ (Rev. 12) VS (2) The Great Harlot (Rev 17)
(1) Mother of a child to rule all nations (vs. 5)
(2) Mother of harlots and abominations (vs. 5)
(1) Filled with life by the blood of the Lamb (vs. 11)
(2) Filled with death because they shed innocent blood (vs. 6)
(1) Clothed with the riches of heaven (vs. 1)
(2)Clothed with the riches of the earth (vs. 4)
(1) The dragon and beast oppose this woman (vs. 3,13,17)
(2) The dragon and beast carry this woman (vs. 3,7)
(1) The earth helps this woman (vs. 16)
(2) The earth hates this woman (vs. 16-17)
(1) Compared to the city of Jerusalem (Rev. 21:2,3,9,10)
(2) Compared to the city of Babylon - earthly Jerusalem (vs. 5)
(1) Lay down their lives and end up with life eternal (vs. 11)
(2) Live for the moment and end up in eternal death (vs. 16)
(1) Compared to Sarah birthing Isaac (Gal. 4:21-31)
(2) Compared to Hagar birthing Ishmael (Gal. 4:21-31)
To further explain these births by the Bride of Christ (Spirit) and the Great Harlot (flesh), let's take a look at Galatians 4:21-31 where Paul compares the sons of promise to Sarah and Isaac, and the sons of the flesh to Hagar and Ishmael:
"For it is written that Abraham had two sons; the one by a bondwoman (Hagar), the other by a free-woman (Sarah). But he (Ishmael), who was of the bondwoman, was born according to the flesh, and he (Isaac), of the free-woman, through promise; which things are symbolic. For these are the two covenants; the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar - for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children - but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all." (Gal 4:21-26).
Here we can see from Abraham's life, that our own good ideas (the flesh) will give birth to bondage, and only that which originates from God's promise (Spirit) results in bringing life. Mount Sinai brings death, but Mount Zion brings life. The next verse continues: "For it is written; "Rejoice, O barren, You who do not bear! Break forth and shout, You who do not travail! For the desolate has many more children than she who has a husband."" (Gal 4:27, Isa. 54:1)
Sarah was made barren by God (Gen. 16:2). Therefore, she attempted to bring about God's promise by acting in the flesh and allowing Abraham to bring forth a son from Hagar which was not God's perfect will. We, the Church, have done the same thing as Sarah. We have not been patient and willing to accept God's purpose in keeping us barren for a time, and we've acted in the flesh using carnal methods to birth fleshly sons into God's house.
The watered down gospel which says, "come to Jesus and He'll fix all of your problems" allows sons of the flesh (Ishmael's) to be birthed. The true message of the Gospel is the Cross, which says, "whoever desires to save his life must lose it." The Cross is not just a part of the Gospel, the Cross IS the Gospel. True sons of the kingdom will be born out of barrenness because their mother (the Bride of Christ) will have been through the wilderness (Cross) and come to the end of "self". Sarah was not able in the natural to give birth, because she was over 90 years old and "past the time of child bearing." Likewise the Bride of Christ in the wilderness will not be able to give birth to God's mature sons in the natural. It will be (it must be) a work of the Spirit.
Isaiah testifies more about the barrenness of the true Bride of Christ in chapter 54 (where Paul is quoting from): "Sing, O barren, You who have not borne! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you who have not travailed with child! For more are the children of the desolate (Great Harlot) than the children of the married woman (Bride of Christ / Sarah). Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed or disgraced; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore. For your Maker is your husband. The Lord of Hosts is His name; and our redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth. For the Lord has called you like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, like a youthful wife when you were refused." (Vs. 1,4-6).
Isaiah then goes on to encourage her that after her barrenness she will inherit: the promises of an everlasting Covenant of Peace, children who are taught by the Lord, and protection from all harm.
Paul continues in Galatians 4: "Now we brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise. But, as he who was born according to the flesh (Ishmael) then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit (Isaac), even so it is now (the Harlot persecutes the Bride). Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? "Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the free-woman." So then brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free." (Gal 4:28-31)
Ishmael and Isaac lived together in the same house. Likewise, in the Church there have been both the sons of the flesh and the sons of the Spirit living together in God's house. But, there came a time when Sarah said, "Cast out this bondwoman and her son (Ishmael); for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son Isaac" (Gen. 21:10-12), and God told Abraham to listen to Sarah. Likewise, after the Bride of Christ births the child of promise (the mature sons of God), then the time is soon when the sons of the flesh will also be cast out.
There is nothing new under the sun. This birthing of the sons of God and the sons of perdition were manifested in the physical lives of Isaac and Ismael as a foreshadowing of things to come. As we come to the end of the Age, we find this birthing process taking place once again, in the spiritual fulfillment of the final battle. The big picture has always been there, right in the pages of the Word, from beginning to end.
I pray that we can all see this as the end draws near. In many ways man has complicated the Truth by his religious interpretations, and the flesh has taken precedence over the Spirit. It is all coming to a conclusion in the very near future, it is time that we see this truth and make sure we are on the right side.
JESUS IS ALL AND EVERYTHING!!
