The Woman and the Manchild:
Key to Understanding the Church Age
The Offense of the Manchild
To receive the word of the Father into one's inner being is to incur offense from those who only receive the soul impartation of the Spirit and remain part of the Woman. Those unable or unwilling to receive the word of the Father are offended at those who do because the Father word establishes a reference point for reality unverifiable to those born only of the divine X gene. It is a spiritual reference point not comprehendible from soul-based spirit perception.
And this is the case wherever progression in God exists. The former misunderstands or even persecutes the latter because the latter moves into a realm of higher grace marked by a new reference point for relating to the Lord unknown to the former.
We know for instance how the Jews were offended at the message of Christ who had a more spiritual word. In contemporary times, we easily see how orthodox and evangelical believers are offended at those who move into the baptism of the Holy Spirit which requires a perception of higher spiritual frequency to understand.
The same is true between those who remain tethered to the soul-based “X” gene of the Spirit and those who go on to receive the circumcising identity-based “Y” word of the Father to become part of the developing Manchild. These relate to the Father on a direct wavelength not apprehendable by soul-based believers who have only encountered the word of the Spirit. Though “X” believers have the Spirit, they cannot understand those who live on the “Y” frequency of the voice of the Father.
So there is an offense, and so it must be. This offense cuts across every visible line of grouping and demarcation in the Body of Christ. For in every group there are the few who have received the word of the Father, and the majority who have not.
Shortly we will consider the dimensions of this offense more closely to see how the Manchild saints have been kept apart from their Mother, preventing them from proper development unto birthing and glorification. Suffice it to point out here that the intensity of this offense is portrayed by the
birthpangs of the Woman in John’s vision. At the hour the Manchild is finally ready to be totally severed from the mothering Church and born into glorification, she cries out in great agony.
Part of this agony is the realization that a new standard for visible authority has been birthed into the Kingdom. It is an authority that supersedes the mothering authority which to this time in church history has been represented by the pastoral office and the government of unglorified soul-based men.
At the hour of travail, the Woman realizes that she has lost control of that with which her womb was entrusted. She loses control of the being that was within her, a baby of whose identity she was not an intrinsic partaker. The time for this manifestation is indeed very near.
So it is that a silent crisis is near to breaking out in the womb of the Church. The coming crisis will supersede all previous offenses due to the fetal development of the Manchild in church history past.
