Just over 2,ooo years ago we first experienced the manifested presence of Jesus the son of God among us in the earth. We know that after Jesus completed His work that His Father gave Him to do that He left the earth. He now sits at the right hand of God the Father in heaven. However Jesus did not leave us without the presence of God in the earth. He did not leave us as orphans. He promised before leaving that He would send to us the Holy Spirit of God (the promise of His Father) to be with us during His absence. Jesus kept His promise to us and had His Father God send to us His Holy Spirit.
So today as promised we have the presence of God’s Holy Spirit in the earth dwelling within believers of Jesus Christ. But there is more of God to come. We can next expect the presence of God the Father to come and dwell in the midst of believers in the earth! But the Father will not dwell in the midst of everyone. God the Father has chosen to dwell in a unique place and among a unique people. He will dwell in the midst of those who comprise the one new humanity that Jesus Christ created for this very purpose.
Ephesians: 2:15 (Amplified Bible)
15 By abolishing in His [own crucified] flesh the enmity [caused by] the Law with its decrees and ordinances [which He annulled]; that He from the two might create in Himself one new man [one new quality of humanity out of the two], so making peace.
Ephesians 2:21-22 (Complete Jewish Bible)
21 In union with him the whole building is held together, and it is growing into a holy temple in union with the Lord. 22 Yes, in union with him, you yourselves are being built together into a spiritual dwelling-place for God!
When God the Father comes, He will bring with Him His own accommodations. He will bring with Him His own city: the city of God, the Heavenly New Jerusalem.
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.
Unity is Not Optional
As The body of Jesus Christ or the church; we are each responsible for and bound to each other. As a body we have been bound together in a collective unity and as the Apostle Paul says we are to keep our unity through the bonds of Peace. We Must Maintain Our Spiritual Unity Within the Body of Christ. Why? It is absolutely the vital pre-requisite to having God the Father come and dwell in our midst!
We explore the foundation of the “One New Humanity” that Jesus Christ created in Himself as we look at what the bible says about the “new man.” The Bible talks about us becoming a “new man” as an individual when we receive salvation in Jesus Christ believing and having faith that Jesus is our Lord and Savior. But did you know that the bible also talks about a corporate “one new humanity” or collective of persons as well?. God’s purpose in creating a new man is to dwell by His Spirit in the new man as an individual. God’s purpose in creating a “new humanity” is to dwell on earth in the midst of a corporate entity as God the Father.
John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. KJV
Are you a part of the One New Humanity?

Lyrics by Keke Mahlangu and Phoofolo Solly
Na ke bo mang, ba mosedile bohong? (Who are they, […]?)
Ba tlhotlhora, role la le bitla (That are shaking off the dust of the grave)
Ba ya kganya, ba ba sweu (They are bright, they are white)
Ba meqhaka ditlhohong (They have crowns on their heads)
Bohang seema, ha ba hlaha ka khoro (Look at them that come through the gates)
Jerusalema e mocha, e mocha (The new Jerusalem)
Pina tsa bona tse tsiswang ke nyakallo (Their songs are full of Joy)
Ke madi a konyana x2 (It is the blood of the lamb)
O ya galalela, O ya galalela (You are holy, You are holy)
O ya galalela, Modimo wa kgotla (You are holy, our God)
“Kulungile Baba (It is well Father) Kulungile somandla (If it’s your will almighty) Kulungile Makuyintando yakho baba (If it’s within your will father) Kulungile Konkw’okwenzekayo baba (Everything that is happening father) Kulungile baba (It is well Father)…”
Today the church is awakening from a long slumber of ignorance. Many Christians now seek to keep the biblical feasts that God outlined in scripture for both Jews and believing Gentiles who place their faith in Jesus Christ. This includes keeping the “full Feast of Passover” rather than just a portion of it by drinking what the church calls the “communion” cup during the Lord’s Supper.
This book provides fresh insight for you regarding God’s set appointments to meet with His family. It answers the question…”Why Should Christians celebrate Passover? and outlines Apostle Paul’s instruction to the church to observe it. This book not only biblically destroys the myth that Passover is just for the Jews, but highlights the prophetic insight of why Christians were included in God’s Passover from the beginning.

The Passover is a well-known Jewish holiday and time of remembrance of Israel’s history of enslavement by the Egyptians. Each year at Passover, Jews worldwide celebrate God’s spectacular deliverance of the nation of Israel from slavery in Egypt.
But did you know that Apostle Paul tells Christians to also keep and observe the yearly Feast of Passover; and calls Jesus Christ our Passover Lamb? This often forgotten instruction given by Apostle Paul to the church has resulted in the blessing of observing the Passover to be lost to many Christians today.
In this book you will clearly see how the Lord planned for this time of remembrance to not only be observed by Jews; but also to be a unique time of remembrance for Christians also seated at the Passover table.
This book explains not only why Paul instructs the church to observe Passover every year; but how you as a Christian can actually conduct an orderly, biblical, step by step Passover observance in your home with family and friends or with your church.
