The Sundering of the Church
1:26-28 And God said, Let us make man in Our Image, after Our Likeness:
First we need to
state that all men, saved and unsaved, are created in the
image and likeness of
God. That is, all
men and women are created physically in the appearance and
physically in the form of God. -- In Evangelical and old main
line denominations this Adam being created in the physical
appearance and form of God, for the last hundred years or
so, has been under an unrelenting and withering attack from
the enemy. In regard to the enemy mounting so great an
attack, one should be led to ask: What is in this phrase that
has the enemy so deliberately blotting those words out, that
they should not see the light of day?
note here that along with these attacks on all men being
created in the physical image and likeness of God, that
there have also been unrelenting attacks on the exercise
and use of tongues, above all other gifts and operations
of the Spirit. There
have been unrelenting attacks on common believers as to their
being able to hear the word that proceedeth from the mouth
of the Father, persistent and unrelenting attacks on the notion of the Holy
Spirit leading and guiding common believers into all truth, as well as the unrelenting attacks
on the notion of common believers being Christ’s disciples
alone as opposed to one discipling oneself to a denomination,
a church, or a even a pastor, or teacher.
the most withering and unrelenting attacks of all have been
against marriage and family. Beginning with the relations between
husband and wife in body, soul, and spirit, -- in attempt
to completely asunder them, there
has also been a withering and unrelenting, undermining assault
against the authority of parents over their children --
in an attempt to pollute and corrupt their children. There has been an unrelenting and withering assault against
households -- specifically those that would pray together,
those that read the bible together, and those that worship
together. In other words, those households that meet
together in house meetings with the high priest of the household
presiding over these meetings that is submitted to Christ
When we look at this list of what the
enemy opposes most in the Church and in households, we see
first that these attacks are “sundering” in nature.
They sunder husbands from their wives.
They sunder parents from their children.
They sunder one household from another.
In Churches, by design, they sunder pastors and teachers
from Christ, they sunder pastors and teachers from the sheep,
they sunder church from church, and church from household.
to the World Christian Encyclopedia by David B. Barrett,
George T. Kurian, and Todd M. Johnson (2001 edition). There are: "Over 33,000 protestant denominations in 238 countries.”
Understand that 95% of these “sunderings” have occurred
in Evangelical, Fundamentalist, Pentecostal, and Charismatic
When we look at
the denominational sundering that has occurred since the beginning
of the Reformation; denomination splitting from denomination,
church splitting from church, -- there must be a steadfast
acknowledgement that within the doctrine of all these churches
is a highly destructive virile contagion. This is a pandemic that has leaped denominations; it has leaped
international borders and continents, and beginning in the
1970’s, this toxic contamination leaped from brick and mortar
buildings into flesh and blood households, which are now being
sundered through “divorce” to the tune of 70% or more.
If this does not cease, the Church will do to itself what Caesar
and Rome could not, what the Roman Catholic Church could not
do to the Protestant movement, and what the Muslim Hoards
during the crusades could not do to the whole of the Church
– The Church will abort itself out of existence.
This is not the first time this has
occurred in history, and this is not the first time this has
occurred in the Church. But
I would say unto you by the Spirit that this is the last time
this shall occur. For we are now at the hour of the end of all things – we are come
upon the fullness of the gentiles and the Lord is weighing
the nations of the earth and finding them wanting and beginning
the separation of the sheep and the goats.
The separation of the wheat and the tares and the whole
of the earth is about to be consumed with unquenchable fire
as spoken by Christ and the Prophets.
Corinthians 2:9-11 For to this end also did I write, that
I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all
things. To whom I forgive
also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I ye
forgive any thing, forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ;
Lest Satan should get an
advantage of us: for
we are not ignorant of his devices.
When this verse is quoted, it is always quoted
as: “We are not ignorant
of his (satan’s) devices.” But this is a “say so” approach. It is a “by my wisdom alone” I cannot be taken in by the serpent’s
subtlety. This smacks
of the declaration that “I
am rich and in need of nothing.”
This arrogant and prideful approach is what
has led to the destruction of the denominations listed above
to which Christ responded: Revelation 3:17 (Thou) knowest not, --
thou art wretched, -- miserable, --poor, -- blind, and naked.
Someone has to see this.
Someone has to recognize this is at work eating the
soul out of their church and their fellowship.
Those who see must cry out a warning with all their
strength to those perishing in their churches and fellowships
Look now at the full words of Paul.
First Paul speaks here of Obedience in all things.
This is obedience in all things that Christ
and the Apostles have taught.
Paul says 5 times that we are to forgive and forgive
and forgive all the more. – To be disobedient and unforgiving
is to give Advantage to the devil
or as stated below in Ephesians To Give place
to the devil.
ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
Neither give place to the devil. Let him that stole
steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his
hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to
him that needeth.
How, when we are
disobedient in anything, and unforgiving to ourselves and
one another, does this give advantage to the
devil and give place to the
He is the accuser of the brethren.
When we willfully sin, and when we are willfully disobedient,
we willfully give him not only the power to accuse us before
God, but we place ourselves under his dominion (The
law of sin and death)
so that he, with impunity, can rob, kill, and steal from us.
When we harbor unforgiveness and let the sun go down
on our wrath, we become footmen for the kingdom of darkness.
We become as Eve after she partook of the fruit, infested
with a contagion boiling in our veins that seeks to pull down
into sin and condemnation all those around us.
The devices Paul
is speaking of here cannot be nulled and voided out by an
empty “say so” whistling in the dark as we pass the grave
yard filled with the dry bones of all those who were snared
and overthrown before us.
Paul declares plainly that only by full obedience to
the commandments of Christ, and immersing ourselves in the
forgiveness of Christ through repentance, and a full and absolute
forgiveness of one another, can we void out and null the devices
of the devil both in the Church and in households.
2 Timothy 2:25-27 In meekness instructing those
that oppose (anti-dia- tithemenos
– Anti - to take in the place of another, dia-Accusative tense means to split as in to asunder Tithemenos – foundation stones.) themselves; if God peradventure will give
them repentance to the (outward) acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, (The church in that hour was already fractured) who are taken captive by him at his will. (And the enemy was already coming in through breaches and taking
This word anti-tithemenos is used only one time in the Septuagint to which Paul added
the word Dia (to sunder) to it.
14:42 And they shall take other stones, and put them in the place
of those stones; and he shall take other mortar,
and shall plaster the house.
Paul is speaking here of people building again.
We see here in Leviticus
that Anti-tithemenos is the taking of other
stones and putting them in the place of stones that were already
there. So what Paul is saying is that in meekness
(As Rebekah to Isaac) we need to instruct those who are sundering
and destroying the temple of the Holy Spirit, breaking up
the foundations and inserting corrupt stones in their place.
These are removing the rock so that their houses are
built upon sand. In
truth, God does not save churches and denominations, God saves
6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ,
let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation (Greek Themenos) of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God.
1:22-23 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
And others save (being filled) with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the (goodly Babylonish)
wear) spotted by the flesh.
(Lest you be defiled as well.)
was not writing here about the unsaved needing compassion
or the unsaved needing to be pulled out of the fire.
He was talking about strong believers ministering out
of pocket to the needs of weak believers, and believers reaching
out to other believers that have been so defiled that they
are burning in God’s judgment now.
The command here is to go into the flames and pull
2 Corinthians 5:17-19 Therefore if any man
be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things
(Greek Pantas of all) are passed away; behold, all things (Greek Pantas of all) are become new. And
all things (Greek Pantas of all) are of God, (Those that
have become new creatures now belong to God) who hath reconciled us to himself
by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
(Only those who have personally come into this reconciliation
with Christ can go out and walk in this ministry of Reconciliation
– it has to be walked before it can be talked. And, it has to be assimilated before it can
be demonstrated.) To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world
unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto
us the word of reconciliation. (but
forgiving their trespasses)
This is the ministry
of reconciliation we have been called unto.
To turn the hearts of the children unto their fathers,
to turn the hearts of husbands unto their wives, to turn the
hearts of wives unto their husbands and to turn the heart
of the bride unto her bridegroom, even Christ.
We shall now
continue our discussion of all men being created in the Image
and Likeness of God.
Genesis 1:26-28 And God said, Let us make man in Our Image, after Our Likeness:
We see that the
above passage is what Paul declares as;
“The Mystery of Godliness”
(Old English meaning: God-like-ness)
1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: (God-like-ness) God (in
his breathing into Adam) was manifest in the flesh.
God-like-ness was made manifest in
the dirt that had the breath of God in it, by virtue of God’s
very breath, which was not bestowed upon any angel.
Secondly, this dirt with the breath of God had also
been given dominion over the fowls of the air, the fish of
the sea, and the animals of the dry land.
This dominion of the first Adam, was also demonstrated
by Jesus Christ the second and last Adam. When He walked upon the water, when He commanded
the wind and storm to cease, when He commanded the fig tree
to wither and when He spoke that he who believes in Him would
be able to command a mountain the be removed and cast into
So through Jesus Christ walking in
that same dominion as the first Adam, we see that the dominion
of Adam was not given over the fish alone, but over the seas
lakes and rivers that contained the fish, as Christ walked
on the water. We see
that the dominion of Adam was not given to the fowls of the
air alone, but to the wind, the clouds, and even the very
air itself that contained the fouls of the air, as Christ
had rebuked the wind and the storm and they obeyed and ceased.
We see that the dominion of Adam was not given unto
the beasts of the field alone, but this contained powers over
the earth, and mountains they treaded upon, even deep into
the earth where they would burrow or have their dens. And though in the first Adam it was not implicitly
stated, it was clearly demonstrated that the second and last
Adam, Jesus Christ, had authority over all the seed bearing
herbs, the trees of the field, and every root and vine, as
demonstrated when Christ cursed the fig tree and it shriveled
and dried up.
In the Church, healing the sick, the
casting out of devils and even the raising of the dead are
but a mere fraction of the dominion that Adam walked in, in
the garden prior to the fall. – But even after the fall with the loss of Adam’s
dominion, and the loss of Adam’s spiritual birthright (The blessings later conferred upon Abraham and Israel), Adam and the son’s of Adam retained
being fashioned in the Image and Likeness of God and this
breath of God in them.
Of these in Adam’s fallen state David
Psalm 8:2-8 Out
of the mouth of babes and sucklings (Adam
and Eve – newborn babes in Christ) hast thou ordained
– to Praise, or To celebrate Hebrew: 3245 Yasad – To lay a foundation, to establish, to found.)
word “Ordained” in the KJV is a Latin word meaning: “Something consecrated, or something set apart as holy by God.”
The insertion of this word “Ordained” by the translators was undoubtedly done
to uphold Augustinian / Calvinistic doctrine. (Which we will not detail at this time.)
In the original
Hebrew / Greek we see these words as meaning “Perfected and Strength.” This “perfected strength’ or ‘strength made perfect,” is speaking of the placement by God from
the beginning of His Image and likeness in the babe / suckling
Adam so that this container of Image and Likeness would became
a house for His breath. And we further see that God, “in His wisdom,”
foreseeing the fall, put within Adam things of Himself that
could not be taken away – even through the fall. In other words, this Image
and Likeness, and even this Divine Breath did not cease when
Adam fell from sin. –
It yet remains in every man that is born into the world.
John 1:9 That
was the true Light, which lighteth every
man that cometh (is
born) into the world.
Yet this light, this divine
breath and this divine image and likeness that is in Everyone
Born in this world, in and of itself does not equal either
salvation or righteousness before God. And of this, John the Apostle clearly testifies
in the next verse.
John 1:10 He (Christ) was in (Came
into) the world, and the world was made by him,
(In His image and likeness
and with His very breath) and (with all of
this – because their light was filled with darkness, sin and
corruption) the world knew
him not. (While we have
stated that the power of this image and likeness and breath
of God was not removed, it was corrupted, and altered through
sin. And further,
He came not just unto the world, but) He came unto his
own, (He came unto His
Ek-Klesia and even unto His very bride) and his own (His Ek-Klesia
and even His bride) received him not. For within their corrupt and darkened hearts and souls, they
had so nullified His Image and Likeness and His Divine Breath,
that they had rendered it inoperative.
For His Image and
Likeness and even God’s very breath within them “Cried out and testified within every man
that Jesus was indeed the Christ, the Son of the living God.” In John 1:10 not only the unsaved did this,
but His Ek-Klesia / Bride ran roughshod over this cry of the Lord as well. We need to
state here, that this voice of the Image and Likeness and
His very breath is the mechanism by which God speaks and draws
corrupt flesh unto His Son.
when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount
of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice (these all for a few moments heard the voice of the Image and
Likeness and God’s divine breath within them rejoicing) and praise God with
a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;
Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the
Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
Some of the Pharisees
from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy
disciples. And he answered and said unto them, I tell you
that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately
cry out. (Stones are dried
out and compressed dirt – Jesus is saying here that if these
men of dirt had not cried out alone with the voice that cried
within them, God would have caused the stones that have neither
the Image or Likeness of God nor the breath of God to cry
out as all men should.)
So in nullifying this cry of the Lord,
the Ek-Klesia, the bride, utterly rejected Him whom they were
betrothed to. Led by the prince of darkness, they cast Him
out of their gate as unclean, and they crucified him in order
to blot out this voice of the Image and Likeness as well as
the voice of the very breath of God that was within them that
reproved them of their evil deeds.
speaks of this very thing:
Corinthians 2:7-15 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery,
(We speak the
mystery of the wisdom of God) even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained (perfected – strengthened or fortified) before the world unto our glory:
(Paul is referring here
to God in His wisdom putting this hidden power of His Image
and Likeness as well as his very breath within men – that
contains certain hidden powers innate to all men that are
born into this world.
Which none of the princes of this world
knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified
the Lord of glory. (For when Christ died, the veil in the temple
was rent -- and the power of the image and likeness and breath
within every believer was affected in a greater and a more
powerful way. We see here that the prince of darkness and
his angels were stunned and dismayed with what they had released
with the death of Christ, the son of life.
Released to whosoever would believe in Him and would
be born of water and born of the Spirit.) But
as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, (neither
by angels eyes or men’s eyes.) neither have entered into the
heart of man, (Where God’s very breath resides) the things which God hath prepared for
them that love him. (They
that heed the cry of the breath of God that is within the
Temple of Image and Likeness of God and avail themselves as
the Bride of Christ in love of their husband and Lord with
all their heart, all their mind, all their soul and all their
strength.) But God hath revealed them
(Through their intimate
love and intimate relationship with their Lord and Husband,
Christ is pleased to reveal these things unto his beloved.) unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things,
searching of the Spirit is a searching of the bride’s heart
as well as the heart of God and as we come together into holy
co-mmunion with Christ, and as we cleave unto the Lord with
all our heart, soul, mind and strength, the twain become one
heart, one soul, and one spirit.
There is a change both spiritual and physical that
is produced – Our physical bodies are quickened - something
that has not been seen since the days of Christ and the Apostles.
We see this very change that is spoken of as coming
at the end of the end-time when from the Ek-Klesia shall come
forth, “shall be born” the Ek-Lectos of God, Christ’s true
bride.), the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things
of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? (This is the Spirit of God placed within every
man that cometh into the world in God’s Image and Likeness
and His very breath that He placed in Adam – and Paul declares
it has certain sensory abilities regarding souls and spirits)
even so the things of God knoweth no man, (And Paul states here what the Apostle John testified elsewhere:
This light, this divine breath and this divine image and likeness
that is in everyone born in this world, in and of itself does
not equal either salvation or righteousness before God.)
but the Spirit of God (intimately
knows all things – so in truth, we have not the power to cleanse
ourselves, make ourselves righteous or confer salvation upon
ourselves. But the Spirit which searcheth our hearts and
searcheth the deep things of God has been conferred; the power
to reveal unto us the deep and hidden things of God – that
he is pleased to bestow upon us individually and personally.)
12Now we have received, (through the power of Christ’s death and
resurrection) not the
spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God (being made partakers of this greater infilling of God’s Spirit it
in the same measure with which we partake and co-mmune of
Christ Jesus) ; that we might know the things that are freely given to
us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which
man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth;
(As Moses did by speaking in tongues and God speaking through
his mouth, so the Holy Ghost, when he teacheth, causes us
to speak in tongues and speaks through our mouths independently
of ourselves that He night instruct us in the way we are to
walk. By this speaking
and moving of the spirit, we are able to offer judgment unto
the Klesia as Moses and the 70 elders did after they to had
the baptism God’s Spirit conferred upon their flesh.) comparing
spiritual things with spiritual. (This comparing is a moving from Spirit to Spirit – from light to
light – illumination to illumination
-- glory to glory.
And in doing so, we are changed from the Image and
Likeness that yet remained in Adam and his seed into the Image
and Likeness of Christ.)
But the natural man (This
Image in Likeness of Adam that houses the breath of God in
its present corrupted form, in and of itself) receiveth
not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness
unto him: neither can he know (Spiritually discern – Paul later lays this
as a charge against the Corinthians in their partaking of
Holy Communion) them, because they (these divine things that are hid in Christ for only His bride and
His bride alone to discover – this is how these things have
remained pure and hidden from the eyes of the talmudized Church
so they could not be tampered with and corrupted.
The Lord declares that the opening and revealing of
these things is not some small thing – but a sign that the
end of all things has come and now is.) are spiritually discerned. . . .
he that is spiritual (he
that is led by the Spirit, and walks in the Spirit) judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. (According to the letter of the law even by
the serpent the accuser of the brethren.)
same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we
know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can
do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
Jesus answered and said unto him,
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is
old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb,
and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily,
I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the
Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Christ spake to Nicodemus and said Ye
must be born again -- of
water and of Spirit – men have preached in darkness of this being born again
of a “spiritual conception.” of the seed of God coming into
men. As we have already mentioned, this teaching
is based upon the erroneous belief that Adam’s spirit died
in the garden. (God says this
nowhere in scripture. – it is a corrupt interpretation that
makes scripture of none effect.) And these men
further state that this being born again is a restoration
of the “spirit of man” that was lost (died)
in the garden.
These are lies of the devil to bury the truth of God’s
Image and Likeness and his very breath dwelling in every man
that cometh into the world. – So that men would believe themselves powerless,
and ineffectual. (Small thought. The unsaved do not believe a bit of this theological
drivel on Adam’s “spirit” dying in the garden, only the saved
do – so that only believers are crippled and hindered by this
if and when salvation does come to someone, it is preached
that this “spirit,” or life of God, enters in then, and just
kind of gestates in them. – That all believers are little
Marys. – And that upon death, that which was gestating in
them shall come forth and either be in His Image and Likeness
if they remain “virginal” little Marys all their days, or
it will be mixed and adultered with the things and lusts of
We see here
the level of lies and tales that the devil has made up to
try to completely bury the truth of God’s Image and Likeness
and very breath being in all men already – and that Christ
in salvation quickens these.
Christ said ye must be born again
he was not speaking of Nicodemus crawling up into his mother’s
womb or Nicodemus being impregnated by the Divine Spirit as
Mary. (These notions are intrinsically Roman Catholic and lend themselves
to Mary and the Apostles being in the unattainable state of
born again is a birthing; a “Coming out of.”
Conception is a going into and impregnating. What Christ was saying to Nicodemus is that this Image and Likeness
of God and His Divine Breath that is within you, that has
been speaking to you that I am the Christ the son of the living
God -- needs to be born again, it needs to come forth.
It needs to cry out among men and have expression.
For if Christ
had not come forth from Mary – how would we have indeed been
saved? Had Christ not come forth as a newborn babe
and grew and learned of God as the second and last Adam –
one that been endowed with the original, uncorrupted Image and
Likeness of God and with the original uncorrupted breath of
God as well as having the first Adam’s dominion, and birthright.
this we see that the devil, in his teachings, wants men and
women of the Spirit in a vegetative gestation state all of
their days, instead of men and women of the Spirit coming
wants is a coming forth of his people; the water and the Spirit. (The word Spirit is Ruach in the Hebrew and Pnema in the Greek.
Both words mean breath, wind, and Spirit, so aside
from what occurred some 3 ½ years later in Pentecost, what
Christ was saying to Nicodemus is that he wanted this breath
of God in Nicodemus that caused him to recognize Jesus as
the Christ, to come forth so that it would be able to blow
and breath on others. This
is much like Christ speaking of lights, candles and lamps,
and that in his disciples, this light was not to be hid, but
revealed and proclaimed from the housetops and hilltops.
God’s Image and Likeness and His very breath come forth, and
breathe and blow among men, we have been called unto a ministry
of reconciliation – Just as Christ went about reconciling
the world unto himself.
In David speaking of the hidden wisdom
of God in His giving unto Adam His Image and Likeness and
even of His very breath.
Psalm 8:2-8 Out
of the mouth of babes and sucklings (Adam
and Eve – newborn babes in Christ) hast thou ordained
– to Praise, or To celebrate Hebrew: 3245 Yasad – To lay a foundation, to establish, to found.)
Strength. (Greek “Katertiso” To frame, or To knit together, or To repair,
Hebrew: 5797 “Oz” -- Strength, Might, Power, Stronghold, or
are now looking at the word translated in the KJV as Strength
(In the Septuagint Kateritiso is translated as “Perfected” Katertiso means to frame or to knit together or to
repair and the Hebrew is 5797 “Oz” -- Strength, Might, Power, Stronghold, or
We see this Perfected Praise enacted in the following passage:
Ezra 3:11 And they sang together
by course in praising and giving thanks unto the LORD; because
he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever toward Israel.
And all the people shouted with a great shout, (Shouts of celebratory praise) when they praised (Ainon) the LORD, because the foundation of the house
of the LORD was laid (perfected).
commonly do this today in groundbreaking ceremonies for new
buildings or other building projects.. In Ezra day, they did
this (praise Ainon) upon the completion (perfection Kateritiso) of the foundation.
In Matthew we read the following of this perfected praise:
Matthew 21:14-16 And the blind (plural)
and the lame (plural)
came to him - (Christ)
in the temple; and he healed (all of) them. And when the chief priests and scribes
saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying
(Aloud and praising and dancing
– as David did before the ark) in the temple, and saying,(over
and over and over again) Hosanna
Osanna – my Lexicon translates that as: Save now succour now. This is a transliteration of the Hebrew word Ho-sa-neh: Ho - Jehovah Among us Sa - Gift, or Present, Neh- Radiant or Shimmering as in
It appears what
they were really crying out was: “Jehovah’s glory has come to
heal us.” or
the Glory of Jehovah has come to heal us.) Osanna
is not in the Septuagint and Hosaneh is not in Strong’s Hebrew.
claim "Save us, we beseech Thee -- Psalm 118:26 [is the
word "hosanna"] But the Hebrew for “Save us” is completely different and the words “We Beseech” thee
are ‘Ga Aga’.
glory has appeared to come to heal us in) the son of David;
chief priests and scribes -- the sons of Levi and Simeon)
were sore displeased, (furious and enraged as prophesied by Israel. Cursed be the anger of Simeon and Levi)
And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus
saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth
of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
going on here was Christ with signs and wonders laid the foundation
of the kingdom – and the children shouted aloud in celebratory
praise and dancing of this laying of the foundation of the
kingdom. This greatly
disturbed the Talmudic priests and scribes who only saw their
quiet reverence disturbed with blasphemies and desecration
of the Temple by a band of disgusting untalmudized children.
Then Christ, with His in your face response to this
desecration of the Temple itself, goaded them into plotting
His destruction from that day forward. (As prophesied by Israel. Cursed be the wrath of Simeon
and Levi for it is cruel)
8:2-9 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou
ordained strength. Because of thine (God’s) enemies, (satan and his angels)
that thou (The man Adam)
mightest still (Bring to silence)
the enemy and the avenger (Both being attributes of satan.)
prophetically states here that the purpose of God creating
Adam in His Image and Likeness and God placing His Breath
in the same was to: “Bring to silence the Enemy and the Avenger”
along with his angels.
David is referring
now to something else that God had secreted inside Adam. For beyond the dominion that we have already described above in
the First Adam, and in Christ the second and last Adam, God
had also placed within Adam a “hidden” or “secret” dominion
that has also been a mystery even to this hour.
It is also a dominion that could not be taken away
through the fall. This “secret” dominion has two components
the first of which is related directly to God placing His
Image and Likeness in man.
I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon
and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that
thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest
him? For thou hast
made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned
him with glory and honour.
Where in Genesis
did God crown Adam with this Glory and Honor?
It was when He created Adam in His Image and Likeness.
– This crowning of God’s Image and Likeness was not conferred
upon any of the angels, and because of this, satan and his
angels, when they come upon men must bow to the image and
likeness of God conferred upon them.
This “Secret dominion” applies to all men, even unsaved
This is why when
the embodiment of the devil shall appear in the last hour
as the antichrist, that he and the false prophet shall
compel all men to worship him, and /or to worship the
image of the beast, and / or the number of the beast. For in the manner the serpent in the garden
usurped Adam’s dominion over all the earth and all things
created in the earth, and he stole also Adam’s birthright,
so also in the serpent’s coming as the Antichrist he shall
seek to make all men bow themselves directly unto him making
him their lord and master -- and thereby making themselves
his servants for all eternity.
madest him (man)
to have dominion over the works of thy hands; (all the works of His hands)
thou hast put all things (thou hast created) under his feet: (Note here that the devil and his angels which do not belong to the
earth, therefore do not gain any personal advantage over men
through the fall for they still must bow before the Image
and Likeness of God in men.)
Only after the
fall did the serpent discover these hidden powers, and from
the time of the fall, the serpent put the Image and Likeness
of God in men under assault. He has actively sought to reverse this, instead
causing men through idolatry to bow to anything and everything
in idolatrous worship, images of animals, plants, rocks, and
symbols. All this has been done in preparation for the
day when he shall get all of men to fall down before him,
his image and his symbol in number, and worship him as god.
We have seen
a global resurgence of idolatry since the 1970’s, in witchcraft,
satanism, druidism, wicca, earth worship, nature worship,
astrology, fortune telling, all of these dark arts have been
on a major rise. We
can also speak here about the global tribalism that has come
upon the young people in tattoos, piercings, and burning symbols
and patterns into their flesh – one must realize that the
god of this world is in overdrive as he prepares his people
for his coming (in the person of the Antichrist.)
Do these things
fill me with fear – no they do not, for I serve Jesus Christ,
who with a mere thought can cast the devil and all his followers
into hell. The Lord has spoken to me of “His secret place” and that
all those who serve and follow him with all their heart mind
soul and Spirit shall enter in to it. – The secret place of
the Lord is a place where the eye of the destroyer cannot
see them –even the embodiment of that in the Antichrist and
False Prophet. What
I am filled with fear and horror over is the “Church” and
all believing they are in the one “true” church, who shall
be utterly destroyed except they repent and turn from their
evil and perverse Talmudic ways.
again about this “hidden” dominion, the second component of
this “secret” dominion that God has placed in Adam was and
still is His very breath. And this second component is communicated via the Spirit through
the mouth of men. This
is not to be confused with the carnal and lustful confession
and profession teachings of this hour.
For though this is an audible and spoken
it is the word that proceedeth from the mouth of the Father
as spoken forth through the mouth of men. It is prophetic praise, it is prophetic prayer,
it is the gift of tongues, it is the word of prophecy, it
is the word or knowledge, the word of wisdom, the word of
revelation, and even the word of faith. –
all of these have their basis in spirit, the breath
of God and are revelatory in nature – thus they cannot be
manufactured by the flesh no matter what men might profess
confess or teach. All
these are spoken of from Genesis to Revelation.
It is by this operation that Abram was justified.
It was this that was in Moses mouth.
It was also in evil and perverse men’s mouths like
King Saul and the Prophet Balaam. And when it is spoken by regenerate or unregenerate
men, the word comes out as an unseen sword dividing asunder
flesh and spirit, it pierces the heavenlies, and it accomplishes
all it was designed to accomplish, and no power in the earth,
under the earth, or in the heavenlies over the earth can stop
I think of a
generation or two ago about how much time was wasted preaching
about the coming forth of the sons of God.
And with all the confession, profession and teaching
that was done by tens of thousands, not one son of God was
I think of a
generation or two ago of how much time was wasted preaching
about the creative word, and with all the confession, profession
and teaching that was done by tens of thousands, not one person
was brought forth possessing the creative word.
I think of a
generation or two ago of how much time was wasted preaching
about the Spiritual warfare and ruling in the heavenlies,
and with all the confession, profession and teaching that
was done by tens of thousands, not one person was brought
forth with dominion in the heavenlies.
Some will vehemently
disagree with the above statements concerning their pet conceits
in these matters, but any disagreement is on a strictly philosophic
basis because they have never had, nor never will have, any
such things in their lives.
The fact is that
all of these teachings, along with this “secret” dominion
of the word of God proceeding out of regenerate and unregenerate
men’s mouth, are not things that one can simply claim ownership
of, or confess, profess or can be taught into existence. Instead, we see in scripture that access to
these is relational rather than by “wisdom” or by “force of
one’s will.” It is based upon one’s personal relationship with God. As
your relationship grows, you will give more and more of yourself
to the Lord, and the Lord will tell you secrets and impart
to you things of Himself.
These things cannot obtained through a transactional
quasi spiritual / business relationship with God. We are not trading wheat, corn, or pork bellies
– this is spiritual communication, or what Paul describes
as spirit to Spirit communication.
Corinthians 2:10-12 But God hath revealed them unto us by
his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the
deep things of God. For
what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man,
which is in him? Even so
the things of God knoweth no man,
but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit
of the world, but the Spirit, which is of God; that we might
know the things that are freely given to us of God.
In the charismatic
movement, all these things are taught as business transactions
with God for one’s personal gain.
Therefore those who teach this as such will NEVER enter
in, for God is not taken by men’s flatteries or men’s deceit,
God looketh upon the heart.
God seeks those with a child-like
heart that delighteth in Him. This cannot be manufactured,
taught or trained. This
same thing can be said also of true worship in Spirit and
in truth. Sure, we can hire talented artists to write
songs and lead our worship.
Sure, they can train us to attain a “certain sound”
or “a certain pitch” that is very pleasing in our own ears.
Sure, we can sing with our understanding and sing with
our spirit and the melding of a great many hearts and spirits
in such worship can be powerful and can be readily felt and
sensed. However, God
is not taken in the least by all these trained singers and
those trained in worship that have been taking the Church
by storm over the last generation –for these people are a
perverse, sinful, gainsaying and disobedient people who walk
not in the ways of the Lord, nor in the fear of God –despite
how they may sound when they come together and sing.
the publican, standing afar off (during
the worship service), would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his
breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
Certainly if all this worship was so heartfelt and
so touching the throne of God as we are made to believe –
would there not be a great number of people that would cry
out as the publican, that would be unable to even raise their
heads toward heaven, but instead beat their breasts in conviction. We read of this very thing occurring during
the great revivals in the 1700’s the 1800’s and in the early
part of the 1900’s, but since the days of the Latter Rain
Revival, this conviction and cleaning has not been seen.
the Lord said, Forasmuch as this
people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips
do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and
their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
In their meetings
a feigned worship has been taught.
The words they preach and teach are feigned, and every
action they do, on and off the platform, are feigned to be
seen and be reveled of by men. I see that it shall come to pass that these
pernicious preachers and teachers shall also teach a feigned
fear of God in their meetings.
answered and said unto them, Well
hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written,
This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart
is far from me.
The word Hypocrite in Greek is the word actor. It means “to play
the part of another.” Christ spoke this of the Scribes and Pharisees of their following
or their emulation and imitation of the great sages and rabbis. Nowhere in the Church today is this same hypocrisy
more evident than in the charismatic movement, and nowhere
in the charismatic movement is the idolatrous hypocrisy more
evident than with the disciples and clones of Kenneth E. Hagin
who blindly march in lock step into the ditch with each other’s
perverse doctrines and teachings.

In the day of
Moses, Moses himself died in the wilderness.
Aaron died in the wilderness.
Miriam dies in the wilderness.
The 70 Elders upon which the Spirit of Moses fell all
died in the wilderness. All the Levites and Priests died in the wilderness.
All the princes of the twelve tribes of Israel died
in the wilderness -- with out belaboring this point any more
it was only Joshua to begin with, one of only two men that did not
bow the knee to the Golden Calf –
Aaron being a type of the anti-Christ who compelled the whole
of the Ek-klesia bow and worship the image of the beast.
This act to all
of Israel was the kiss of death – it did not matter what they
confessed, what they professed or what they taught – even
though they repented under the watchful eye of Moses’.
No one could enter into the land
(Not Even Johua and Caleb) until every last one of
them had perished in the wilderness. Though nobody teaches or preaches it, there
are sins unto death in the Bible, in both the New and
Old Testaments. And by the Spirit I say that Aaron indeed
shall arise and shall indeed compel all men to worship the
beast, the image of the beast and the number of the beast.
All who do so shall be utterly blotted out and none
shall enter into the millennial reign of Christ until every
last one that bowed the knee has been gathered and destroyed.
21:22 And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and
he be to be put to death.
(A sin unto death --
He shall be put to death
fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither
shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every
man shall be put to death for his own sin(s).
Romans 6:16 Know ye not, that to
whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye
are to whom ye obey; whether of (giving
oneself to obeying these)
sin(s) unto death, or of obedience
1 John 5:16 If any man see his brother
sin a sin which is not unto death,
he shall ask (Pray)
and He (Christ)
shall give Him (His) life for
them that (commit not)
sin not unto death (sin unto death).
There is a
sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it ( Here we are instructed not
to pray for those that have committed sins
unto death, and that Christ will offer not redemption
to those which have committed such acts.)
are a number of sins unto death listed in both the new ald
old covenants -- many Christians declare that the sin of bleasphemy
against the Holy Ghost is the only sin that is unto death
that can not be forgiven -- This is utterly false and poses
a great danger to all who claim to be in Christ.
When speaking of
the sin of blasphemy of the Holy Ghost there is not even any
agreement among the men of the cloth of what this means. As
they posture themselves and feign this is a hard thing to
discern.-- The truth is most of these preachers know exactly
what Christ means when he spoke those words to the pharisees,
but are afraid to speak what this phrase means first becasue
it infringes on their imagined right to preach whatever they
please and uncovers them as the wolves that they are. And
it is becasue they lust after the dollars in the pockets of
those who they preach to and fear to lose them more than they
fear God Himself and the day of coming of judgement. The truth
is that "Men of the burial cloth" blaspheme the
Holy Ghost all the time -- as they ascribe the works of the
Holy Spirit that includes His striving with men against sin
as either being the works of men, the
works of the flesh, or the works of the devil --that is blasphemy
against the Holy Ghost.
unto death is a more expansive list that is actually repeated
over and over in the epistles like for example Adultry
and Fornication and Idolitry.
one commits or walks in these sins which have become an epidemic
in the church of this hour one can not simply wink these things
away and wink themsleves into salvation and eternal life.
some one may ask what does this mean? Didn't
Jesus forgive the woman caught in adultry?
Point one: Yes he did. Point to: And afterward He said unto
this woman go and sin no more. --What
He said to this woman is do not commit adultry any more.
Magdalane the harlot after she had seven demons cast out of
here and was forgiven was no more called Mary the Harlot either
by Christ nor by the disciples as her sins past had gone into
the sea of God's forgetfullness and in the sea of forgetfullness
of the brethren as well.
one to dwell in these sins there is no forgiveness there is
only forgivemess when one departs their evil ways and turns
unto the Lord.
commited some most greivious sins in denying the Lord and
calling curses upon himself if he was lying to save himself
from dying with christ though he has confessed repeatedly
his determination to so so.
I was first saved Preachers routinely glaze over Peter's sins
and call helffire and damnation on their parishioners, and
three decades later there is not any acknowledgement of sin
either in the church or in the world and as for any coming
judgement of God this is left to those who actually read the
bible on their own to firgure out this for thenselves.
live in a very dark tines indeed. We have come to the hour
the church can no longer deliver itself of its sins because
it can no longer see them. And that the Church has become
a habitation of demons because it can no longer discern their
presence as they belend so well in to what is considered Good
ministry and Good doctrine today.
was Moses personal servant –he was man of devotion to Moses
and God and a man of obedience. Though tempted, Joshua did not leave his post on the mount to see
for himself what all the fun and excitement below in the camp
was about. Instead, Joshua faithfully held his post and stood
firm waiting on God and waiting for Moses, the servant of
God to return.
King Saul the man of the flesh could
not wait for God's servant Samuel to return from the Lord
deserted his post and in his sin and corruption he
assumed the post of High Preist (For
all intents and purposes Laying his hand upon the Arc of God)
And for that Saul was rejected of God and
had taken away from him even that which he thought he had.
(I see by the Spirit that Christ was
referring to Saul and others when He spoke those words in
parable. He was speaking about those that have received of
the hand of the Lord need to move in the fear of the Lord
-- which is echoed by Paul and the writer of Hebrews.)
3:1-7 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest
standing before the angel of the LORD, (Joshua was diligently seeking cleansing before God – and this one
man’s standing day and night before God was threatening the
prince of Darkness’s control and sway over Israel.) and Satan standing
at his right hand to resist him. (The accuser – sought to declare Joshua disqualified for his filthy
garments bearing Joshua’s personal defilement of his sin and
iniquity.) And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke
thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke
thee: is not this (Man
Joshua) a brand plucked out of the fire? (One that has been redeemed –
by his continual stand and seeking of the Lord from out of
the fire) Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments,
and stood (continued
to stand and seek God) before the
angel. And he (The
Angel of the Lord) answered and spake
unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy
garments from him. And unto him (Joshua) He said
(The Lord), Behold, I
have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe
thee with change of raiment. (This is what happened to Abraham, Moses and Isaiah – they entered
into sanctification.) And I said,
Lord) Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they
set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with (clean) garments. (We see here that Joshua could not cleanse himself,
and that Joshua Could not clothe himself, but in his standing
in the heavenlies resisting the devil – He, through his persistence,
he was heard of God, and he received personal justification.
And then the angels of God came and ministered to him and
girded him in authority and power. Just as they did unto Christ
when he resisted the devil in the wilderness.) And the angel of the LORD stood by. And the angel
of the LORD protested (exhorted) unto Joshua,
saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou
wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then
(I will cause thee) thou shalt also judge (over all) my house, and (thou) shalt also keep (rule in) my courts (in the heavenlies), and I will give thee places to walk (in the heavenlies) among
that stand by (God’s throne).
the devil is not men standing up and shouting “I rebuke you
satan.” and then boasting of their supposed spiritual prowess
over the devil. – We see here that resisting the
devil is a piercing of the heavenlies where one is standing
steadfastly before the Lord day and night,
for weeks, months, and even years until you are heard of God
and you have received personal justification before Him. –
And once justified that you then continue to stand, (Not running off into ministry
to build your own house and name and receive the praise of
men.) But you continue to stand before
the Lord (In
reverence fear and awe of God. –This is true worship and praise.
) until the Lord causes you to
arise in the Spirit to rule in the heavenlies and even over
the angels themselves.
The Church of this hour is utterly “sundered” from Christ and therefore
it knows nothing of this.
LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of

of him! Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that
3:9-10 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, (The mystery of fellowship –
God’s Agapeo towards Adam the man of dirt) which from the beginning (Greek Aeons Ages) of the world hath been hid in God,
who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that
now unto the principalities (Greek
Archais Dominion) and powers in heavenly places might be
known by (Greek
Dia through) the church (by) the manifold wisdom
We see that this “hidden fellowship” through
the ages of the world was accomplished through God in His
hidden wisdom placing in Adam secret things of Himself.
Though they were sometimes dormant, God formerly moved
through these secret things from time to time in Scripture
to defeat the enemy and his seed of corruption.
Paul states that through Jesus Christ
-- as one’s sole Master, Lord, Shepherd and the dispatcher
or all truth, revelation, and the gifts and operations of
the Spirit (The Ek-klesia not
being even remotely in that place today.), that
the individuals in the Ek-klesia were to demonstrate the “powers” and “dominions” in the heavenlies
of this “restored” hidden wisdom of God. These powers being enumerated only through one’s personal entering
into this mystery or fellowship with God. So within this passage, we have not only mention of dominions and
powers that were lost to Adam, and that they have been restored
by Christ, but we see here why they have been lost to the
Church. This “secret” has been hid for the entire church age
on how men may enter in to partake of this secret manna in
and through Christ, --
these secret dominions and powers in the heavenlies.
We want to add to this a few more words concerning
this Mystery of fellowship.
This indwelling breath of God that was
given unto Adam and could not be taken away even through the
fall. And this indwelling breath of God is the basis of God
being able to commune fellowship or tabernacle with men in
some limited fashion, even though they were cut off and separated
from Him through sin and iniquity. –How much more are we supposed
to be able to commune, fellowship and tabernacle with God
through the cleansing of Christ’s blood, and through the Holy
Spirit dwelling no longer beside us, as “friend” and “Savior”
but within us through the Baptism of the Holy Ghost?
The “Church” cannot enter into this or
partake of this because they cannot see it, neither can they
know it because the entering in is spiritually discerned.
Jesus spoke of this hidden entrance as well.
Straight is the gate
and narrow is the way and few there be that find (discern it).
By reading this and quoting this you have entered into nothing.
It is only if you will search for God (who
hides himself from this gainsaying and stiff necked people)
with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and all
your strength that He will be found of you – and then you
shall know if this doctrine is of God or not.
8: 5, 8-9 Whoso keepeth the commandment (walks in the Spirit) shall feel no evil thing: (is above the letter of the Law) and a wise man's (the man of the Spirit) heart discerneth (This discernment is a spiritual operation based upon the indwelling
Breath of God – we note here that even with the indwelling
Holy Spirit, that the Corinthians could not discern the Lord’s
body and this brought weakness, sickness and death among them) both time (the
timing of God)
and judgment.(This is the
word of the Lord in Edification
– is not a “Puffing Up” as
is currently preached. It is not a telling of how good and how worthy someone is. Edification is a building up – it is a “hard
hat” site where a tearing down can and does occur, inspectors
come on site and anything that is found to be faulty, worn
or soiled is removed and replaced in order to build up.
Exhortation -- this can also
be reproof and correction as Christ frequently exhorted or
reproved the Apostles. Or,
it can be a spirited appeal toward a goal or purpose.
And comfort - this can be assurance
to press forward in a difficult matter, it can be an assurance
that God is with you even though you have sinned, or fallen
short in some area, or even that God is with you despite your
going down a wrong path – so that you might not be cursed
or destroyed – but that you would find grace to turn to the
Lord and be able to find a place of repentance and cleansing

Things that no man, regardless of what they religiously
confess, profess or teach, could do for themselves.

When God removes something –there can
be no vacuum. God does not leave clean and empty houses for

in His departing from the disciples and what is to fill that

So by this point
I trust that we can see some of the mysteries Paul was speaking
of that were hid within Adam from the beginning and the secret
things God put in Adam that took the princes of this world
by surprise by sharply stinging them in the heel while
“they reveled” in their ill-gotten dominion over men.
first few books of the Bible we see that men were once extremely
cognizant of their being created in the Image and Likeness
God said unto him in a dream, Yea,
I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart;
for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: (God himself says here that for this king to have unknowingly
committed adultery was to commit great sin against God himself
– Implied here is that this would have been a sin unto death.) therefore suffered (Because of your innocence and integrity of heart prevented) I thee not to touch her.
There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he
kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his
then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?
We note here that this sinning against the Lord’s Image and
Likeness applies to far more than adultery; it applies to
all sins that can be done by one person to another.
Reuben answered them, saying, Spake I not unto you, saying,
Do not sin against the child; and ye would not hear? therefore,
behold, also his blood is required. (by the Lord)
In the case of Joseph, the list of sins against
the Lord by his ten older brothers is quite lengthy, and we
note here that their sins were specifically against those
who walked in the Spirit, namely Israel, and Joseph.
Is it that these young men hated their father and despised
him? No, this is hardly
the case. It was the
“spirit of disobedience” that caused them the do such things,
this same spirit that also worked in the Apostles when they
were with Christ. Most notably in James and John when they desired
to call fire down from heaven upon a few unbelieving villages
“to teach them a lesson,”
and when Peter rebuked Christ that he should never
die on the cross, when all the disciples fled Christ in the
garden and left Christ in the hands of sinful men, and when
Peter denied the Lord thrice.
Looking a little more at the sins of the
Apostles, we see Christ attempted to prevent Peter from sinning
against God. Christ had prayed for Peter that his faith
fail not. Christ had
also foretold Peter that he was to be sifted and tempted by
satan and that Peter would deny Christ thrice. Even with Christ’s personal prayer and his knowing
all of this beforehand, Peter succumbed to sinning against
In the words of Paul all
of these twelve men were guilty for 3 ½ years of not discerning
the Lord’s body. And of a truth, these men were not picked for
what they brought to the table – indeed none of these men
were men of any discernable talents toward that to which they
had been called.
But when the day of Pentecost was fully
come, and the indwelling Spirit of God took up His abode in
them as their Ezer and Boethos they were then able, as Joshua
and Caleb, to enter into the land and begin possessing the land
(We are speaking here
specifically of their being able to preach the Gospel in demonstration
and power.). This possessing of the land was prophesied
of a growing dominion as was done in Christ’s ministry unto
Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and then unto the ends of the earth.
Deuteronomy 7:22-23 And the
LORD thy God will put out those nations before thee by little
and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest the
beasts of the field increase upon thee.
When God removes
something –there can be no vacuum. God does not leave clean
and empty houses for the beasts of the field to occupy. There must be an occupying, a filling through
the fruitfulness of the seed of the righteous.
First and foremost, there must be a process
of cleansing and marked repentance.
This process 100 years ago was called the second definite
work of grace -- sanctification which involves a
large measure of the Lord’s edification,
exhortation, and comfort as is spoken of and demonstrated
repeatedly in the Gospels.

Sadly in this day, though there are hundreds
of millions of professed evangelical, fundamentalist, Pentecostal
and charismatic believers – Christ’s discipleship program
is empty and bare – there are seemingly none that can walk
from the bright lights and activity of Ur of Chaldees to leave
the klesia made with hands and to come out to the wilderness
to meet with Christ so that one might discover and enter in
and out of the Ek-klesia who’s builder and maker is God.
Christ is calling out to you today – perhaps
this would be a good time to pause and pray.
I know the Lord is speaking to some. We are not speaking of an accepting of the
Lord under our terms. We
are speaking of a total surrender.
A total selling out of all that I have and all that
I am. This is the
doorpost of the narrow gate that few find. This is the threshold to truly enter in to
follow Christ. This
is the only way to take His yolk and learn of Him alone in
all meekness and lowliness. I encourage you to stop here and take all the
time it takes to pray and do this properly. The rest of this article will go no place, but you will. Pray now even if you do not really understand
all that has been written about.
Pray for Jesus to reveal to you what He is saying,
and that He will help to you to be obedient unto your absolute
surrender and the absolute laying down of your life before
Christ and Christ alone.
God said, Let us make man in our
image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion
over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and
over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping
thing that creepeth upon the earth. So
God created man (Adam) in his own image,
in the image of God created He him (Adam); male (Greek Arsen –The male sex organ. Hebrew 2145 Za-kar “Za”2050.2 – means He or Him and “Kar” 3733
A young virile ram, or a battering ram.
Kar-it 3747 means Cut off or Without Kar.
In 1 Kings 17:3 and 5 God command Elijah to hide himself
by the brook of the “sundered” Kar
And Kar it ut
3748 means Divorce. The cutting off or the “Sundering”of the
Kar and the “Sundering” of the “Ut” oil of the olive.) and female created He them.
Earlier we spoke about a virile contagion
has come upon the Protestant Church and more specifically
Evangelical, Fundamentalist, Pentecostal, and Charismatic
Churches. The poisons
that are coursing through the blood vessels of these denominations
have caused these denominations to divorce and “sunder” itself
over 33,000 times as of five years ago and these figures over
the last 100 years have been on a steep rise.
Not in all my years as a believer has
a single Pastor or Ministry I have ever heard of or read,
ever addressed this crisis. – None have dared say the devil
is at work across the spectrum of bible believing denominations
and is threatening to completely overthrowing and destroying
them from within.
This same disease
has infested and infected local churches of these 33,000 denominations
causing congregational “sunderings” in the hundreds
of thousands and this shows no sign whatsoever of abating.
Not in all my years as a believer has
a single Pastor or Ministry I have ever heard or read
Ever addressed this firestorm . – None
have dared to say that the devil through the perverted Talmudic
doctrines and traditions of Roman Catholic Doctor John Calvin,
Roman Catholic Doctor Martin Luther, and Roman Catholic Priest
and Scholar Menno Simons, have transformed the virgin daughter
of bible believing Protestantism into the daughters of the
Great Whore of Revelation.
And since the
early 1980’s this contagion has moved into congregation households
with divorces or sunderings moving from almost none to tens
of millions in just 25 years.
17:3-5 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness:
and I saw a woman sit (Riding triumphantly) upon a scarlet coloured
soaked from all of its centuries or religious wars, persecutions
and murders) beast,
full of names of blasphemy,
names of blasphemy are the names of all their Sages and Rabbis
and scholars, and doctors, and mystics, and bishops and then
all the Protestant Reformers who hand carried in these Talmudized
doctrines and traditions tot the sundering of “Israel and
Judah” (The Catholic and Protestant church.). And thereafter the Protestants created their
own golden calves in Dan and Bethel.
Since that hour, their disciples as pastors, and teachers,
and evangelists, and prophets, and Apostles, and mystics and
scholars have carried on their work of Talmudizing every revival
recorded in Church history even to the Charismatic revival
of this day.
deep partaking of the Talmudized / Augustinian doctrine of
“Election” The Talmudized / Augustinian doctrine of “Predestination,”
and the Talmudized / Augustinian doctrine of “Eternal Security,”
have filled “bible believing” Protestants with a madness of
never endings church and denominational sunderings with each
new whore believing that she is the only one with all truth,
and is clean and pure and because of their Election, their
being Predestined, and their being Eternally Secure, they
can DO NO WRONG before God.
It has only been
since the 1970’s that the disciples of these things in Evangelicalism,
Fundamentalism, Pentecostalism and Charismaticism have realized
what the doctrines and traditions they have held for the last
500 years actually mean. They mean that just as their church can sunder
itself from the entire body of Christ for any declared or
undeclared reason possible, and then declare itself holy pure
in so doing because they are “The Elect,” that God is in control
and allowed all this (See Adam, God didn’t strike me dead,
I’m still alive.). So
we were “Predestined” to do this, and (See Adam, I’m still
a child of God even after partaking of the tree. And so if
you partake of the fruit we can be together forever in “the
will of God” because we are in fact “Eternally Secure.”
Nothing that we could ever say or do can effect that
we are children of God – no one can take us out of the hand
of God. – What they
mean is you can commit adultery nulling the word of God, and
“still be saved.” What they mean is you can divorce/sunder your
husband or wife because it just isn’t as fun anymore, nulling
the words of Christ Himself and “still be saved.”
What they mean is you can lust after all the things
of the world as in the prosperity Gospel nulling the words
of Christ and the Apostles and “still be saved.”
50:1 Thus saith the LORD, Where is the bill of your mother's divorcement,
whom I have put away? or which of my creditors is it to whom
I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold
yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put
polar opposite of Eternal Security is the Fear of God.
Psalm 89:7 God
is greatly to be feared (Greek Alelu-Theon) in the assembly (Ek- Klesia) of the saints (Greek Hagion –Holy or Sanctified), and to be
had in reverence of all them that are about him.
our understanding, David is speaking here of the Ek-klesia of the Hagion this is called elsewhere in KJV the elect
of the elect.
These are the Ek-Lektos of God which prophesied of by Daniel
and Christ. And the noted here by David this Ek-Lektos of God -- Greatly Fears
and Worships God alone , and the Evangelical, Fundamentalist,
Pentecostal, and Charismatic Churches – Bible believing Christianity
DO NOT. They instead
preach and teach against the Fear of God.
They preach that the “Love of God” casts out the “Fear
of God.” and he who Fears God is not made Perfect in the Love
thou (that) castest off (the) fear (of God), restrainest (thy) prayer before God.
now, Israel, what doth the LORD
thy God require of thee, but to
fear the LORD thy God, to walk
in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD
thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
We see here that we are
not to chose to Love the Lord or to fear the Lord but that
BOTH ARE REQUIRED. This is a case to the two becoming one flesh
in us. And with the
sundering of the fear of the Lord, there is a loss of the
Kar – the young virile Ram, the battering ram or power of
God and there is a loss of the Ut –the oil of the olive or
the blessing of the Holy Spirit.
And that you have divorced yourself not only from the
fear of God, but you have divorced yourself from God Himself.
As you cannot selectively chose what you want to be
discipled by Christ for.
You are either his full-time disciple alone or you
You cannot be Christ’s disciple part time and Mammon’s disciple
part time. Jesus declares again: You cannot be Christ’s
disciple part-time and the things of the world’s disciple
part-time. This part-time disciple business was first
preached by the serpent in the Garden to Eve.
He told her that she could partake of the fruit of
the knowledge of Good and Evil and still be God’s child; that
Eve could partake of death and still live.
The devil is still peddling this same product in the
church to this day and people are hungrily and greedily partaking
of this fruit for they lust after it like Eve with all their
heart, all of their Soul, with all of their mind, and all
of their strength. Had Eve put as much thought and effort into
her love and fear of God, she would have eaten the serpent
for breakfast instead of the fruit.
Had Eve’s desire been toward Adam with all her heart,
soul and strength, instead of the fruit –she would have cleaved
unto him, being one flesh with him, and before God they would
have never been sundered in spirit from each other. They would have never been sundered from God
and they would have never been sundered from the garden. All of this
sundering is divorce
Kar-It –Ut --The sundering is death.
Adam and Eve’s spirits did not die as men have falsely preached
at the behest of the serpent.
Adam and Eve’s spirits were sundered from each other,
and their spirits were sundered from God.
Lest they make this sundering eternal by partaking
of the fruit of the tree of life, God saved them in the first
act of redemption by casting them out of the garden and blocking
the way to tree of life.
He did this so that the demonized fevered lusts living
and breathing in them, would not drive them to partake of
the tree of life and damn them and all their seed in that
state for all of eternity.
So in like manner,
men and women today fevered by their sin and lusts say: I
want to have healing and power over demons but any demand
of my leaving house or lands or losing my life for the Gospel
is completely out.
The contagion within
them cries out through their lips: I am willing to accept
Christ’s love and all the blessings that He is willing to
lavish upon my flesh – but I cannot accept even the hint of
any reproof, correction, of chastisement as being of God.
These are not the
words of those that walk in the light.
As he is in the light, these are the words of those
who walk in darkness – who’s light as Christ warned has become
how is it that God blesses these people? – God rains upon
the just and the unjust, God hears and answers the cry of
the righteous and the unrighteous. For God so loved the world that he gave to
the righteous and the unrighteous, the just and the unjust
His only son. This giving is the manifestation of His
Son that whosoever might believe – this is the allowing
of evil darkened men to taste and see that the Lord is good,
to partake of small tastes of God’s demonstration and power.
is exactly what is going on in these darkened churches and
denominations among the klesia – who have been utterly deceived
that this is all there is in God, and they are fully walking
in the light as He is in the light. These have been deceived into believing that
they are to gestate and vegetate where they are -- and that
this is salvation. These have been utterly deceived into believing
that they are the elect, that they are predestinated, and
they are eternally secure, right where they are.
The design of this by the devil is that none ever rise
up and leave the comfort and slumber of their Ur of Chaldees.
None ever forsake their houses, lands, relations, and
the wealth and things of this world in search of a city not
made with hands who’s builder and maker is God, therefore
none ever obtain the excellency that is in Christ.
the church remains in a drug-induced sleepy stupor laying
upon their tables covered with vomit, covered with filthiness,
filled with pride, selfishness, and how worthy they are as
the “righteous” seed of God.
hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again:
God shall cast them out of His belly. (This
is a sundering)
know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would
thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm,
and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.
Because thou sayest, I am rich,
and increased with goods, and have need of nothing;
and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and
poor, and blind, and naked:
(This is a sundering of the wealthy and those who live and eat by
this, rather than seeking the Lord daily to provide all their
needs. Those who live off of the teat of this world
–cannot be Christ’s disciple but shall instead vomited out,
as Adam and Eve were vomited out of Eden.
These believers shall be sundered from one another
that they cannot truly enter into being “one flesh,” and the
shall in like manner be sundered from God that they cannot
truly be one in spirit with God either.
11:1-3 And there shall come forth a
rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out
of his roots: And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel
and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the Fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick
understanding in the Fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his
eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
we see Christ, the beloved Son of God, taken from the bosom
of the Father, had the Fear of the Lord and He embraced this
Fear of God. The Servant is not above the Master and yet, in the last two generations,
they have openly declared they have cast out the fear of God
by their love of God, and thereby they are walking in something
that Christ did not, could not, and dared not.
All those who profess this doctrine are not walking
with God as they suppose, for they have sundered the Love
and Fear of God.
Hebrews 5:7 (Christ) Who in the days of his flesh, when He
had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying
and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and
was heard in that he feared; (This is the Fear of God over the Fear of men) Though he were a Son, (God’s beloved Son taken from
God’s Bosom) yet learned He obedience by the things which he
he was to suffer in the hands of sinful men and then with
the giving of His own self in death on the Cross.)
once again leads the way walking and demonstrating what His
true disciples are to walk in.
12:4-6 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill
the body, and after that have no more that they
can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which
after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I
say unto you, Fear him.
from the mouth of Christ Himself is true standard of what
the fear of God is to be among his disciples and the Ek-Klesia.
Here Christ speaks to the Apostles as His “friends.” He commands them to be not afraid of those that can kill the body.
But Jesus commands His friends, the Apostles themselves,
to Fear God (He alone who
has the power to cast into hell.)
As we have said elsewhere, Paul commissioned
Luke to write the Gospel of Luke himself.
Paul quotes from this Gospel in his epistles.
It is therefore not reasonable at all to suggest, as
the moderns of the last two generations, that when Paul spoke
Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power,
and of love, and of a sound mind.
Here, Many in this hour suggest that Paul
was intentionally countermanding the words of Jesus Christ
that were faithfully recorded in the very Gospel that Paul
himself commissioned Luke to write, which Paul references
in His epistles. It
would be high treason against Christ and the Kingdom for Paul
to say God has not given us the Fear of God and to imply that
it is the devil that has given us this spirit of fear concerning
God. Paul here is
referring to the words of Jesus himself in Luke 12, that men
can kill our bodies only, and that we are not to fear or have
a spirit of fear toward them.
Even though we can attain “deep
personal relationship” and “great friendship” from Christ,
this, according to Christ himself, cannot and does not change
one iota the fear of God we are to have. And Paul is not suggesting
we are not to have a fear of God here or anywhere else in
his epistles – in fact contrary to what the great Sages and
Rabbis of this day preach concerning the Love of God Paul
in his Epistles continually talks about his fear of God --
Even though he was “Saved” and was “Set in the body”
as an apostle by Christ Himself and walked in great demonstration
and power of the spirit. (Those
in the Church in this hour who are “set in” by men with minuscule
“gifts” and “manifestations” boast to no end and exult themselves
and their ministries without the slightest fear. Believing themselves to be unassailable by
God and men.)
1 Peter 2:17 Honour
all men (For they are created in the Image and likeness
of God). Love (Agape)
the brotherhood. Fear God.
Honour the king.
further, by these, my son, be admonished of (the) making many books (of which) there is no end; and (partaking of) much study (in
is a weariness of the flesh. (Jesus
reproves the scribes and Pharisees for this very thing) Let us hear the conclusion
of the whole matter: Fear
God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty
of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every
secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
14:6-7 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach (The Angel is preaching the Everlasting Gospel) unto them that dwell
on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
Saying with a loud voice, (and the words of the True and Everlasting Gospel are)
God, and give
glory to Him; for the
hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth,
and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
have written that the term “Preacher” is hyphenated from Preacher
of Righteousness. –and that the True Gospel is
the preaching of: Sin
and the Judgment.
Here, in this passage we see irrefutably
that the “Everlasting Gospel”
contains the preaching of the
Fear of God. Giving God the Glory in the context of the
Fear of God is Repentance from Sin. We see clearly here the True Gospel contains preaching of the final
judgment and this would include the lake of fire.
As we discussed
above regarding Paul’s quotation to Timothy being twisted
by the moderns to utterly contradict the words of Christ in
the very Gospel Paul commissioned and quoted from in his writings,
so we have the same case here with the Apostle John.
For while he
was held as a prisoner on the Isle of Patmos, the Lord revealed
to John in a series of dreams and visions, the Book of Revelation.
So in Revelation 14:7 we have the Angel of God preaching
the Everlasting Gospels and telling all
to Fear God. And to this we add that Jesus, in Luke
commanded John, his friend, the disciple he loved, not to
fear men who could kill the body, but to Fear God who alone
has the power to cast into hell.
It is therefore
far more unreasonable to suggest that the Apostle that Christ
loved would intentionally countermand the words of his beloved
Master, Jesus Christ. The fear that John speaks of is in relation
to thy brother/neighbor/stranger that dwells in thy midst. John appears to be addressing a fear of
persecution – and a desire of brethren to protect themselves
by not reaching out to those around them.
And John here rebukes this spirit of self-preservation
and declares it as imperfect love.
John further states that when one acts on this imperfect
self-interest – this disobedience to Christ over men, shows
our love and fear of God is fraudulent and empty lies.
There is no fear (of men)
in love; but perfect love casteth out fear (of men that can kill the body only.):
because fear (of
men over our fear God) hath torment
Kolasin the Lexicon says this means chastisement or punishment. In the Greek Septuagint, this word is used
seven times and every single time it is translated as “punishment”--This
fear that hath punishment is the weeping and wailing and gnashing
of teeth of disobedience of those who fear men above God.)
He that feareth (men that can kill the body only.)
is not made perfect in love. We love Him, (Christ) because He first loved
us. If a man say, I love God, and hateth (Mise) his brother, (Adelphos) he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother (Adelphos) whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he
hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him,
who loveth God love his brother also.
John cites this commandment from Leviticus.
Leviticus 19:17-18 Thou shalt not hate
(Mise) thy brother (Adelphos) in thine heart: (nor)
shalt thou in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer
sin (to fall) upon him. Nor shalt thou avenge, nor bear
any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour
as thyself: I am the LORD.
Luke 14:25-27 And
Jesus said unto them, If any man come to me, and hate not
his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren,
and sisters, yea, and (Hate
and Loath) his own
life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever doth not bear
his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
hating and loathing of one’s self and even their own life
is a revelation and gift from God.
This is not an intellectual assent, because an intellectual
assent will not stand in the day of fire . It will be burned up with all other works of
the flesh. When men
shall come and say, “confess the devil as God or we will kill
your son before your eyes,” intellect will crumble and fail.
When men will come and confess the devil as God or
die, intellect will waver and surrender.
We see this demonstrated in the Apostles at the death
of Christ. Their intellectual
assent to follow Christ even unto death failed. Their resolve and will failed them. Their physical strength failed them. As unthinkable as it may be, their knowledge
of scripture failed them, and as equally unthinkable, their
oil and anointing failed them.
Their lamps went out and all the gifts of the Spirit
they had operated in for 3 ½ years could not hold them back.
They had a complete and utter catastrophic failure
in the face of men that kill the body. But through this, these eleven men had a revelation
in which they loathed themselves.
They were horrified by their actions and came to hate
themselves and even their bodies because of their sin corruption
and utter depravity. A cry was raised in that hour. None of them could look up even to heaven,
as their beat their breasts and rent their garments. Gone was their boasts of who was the greatest among them. Gone was their personal aspirations of self-exalting
ministry. Gone was
their self-worth, their pride, and selfishness.
Born into their breast was the fear of God. Born in their breasts was that they, as the prodigals sons, had
thrown away all of the friendship and love of God that they
had been given in Christ.
They cried and lamented that they might find God’s
grace instead as slaves working dawn to dusk earning only
their daily bread, the clothes on their back, and shelter
until the next dawn. As
they cried and fasted for three days, their hearts were converted
has been called being broken in spirit, but this is not true
either, for it does not covey the self-loathing and horror
and hatred of themselves the apostles experienced.
Corinthians 7:10 For Godly sorrow (A sorrow that is born of God or born of the
Spirit) worketh (A
Godly) repentance unto salvation (That is received at upon the completion of your course.)
not to be repented (In
which one being circumcised of heart shall be no more being
turned) of: but the (false
and vain) sorrow of the world (in
believers) worketh death. (Through
its pride, arrogance, selfishness, and ever-inflating belief
of one’s self-worth.)
darkness and death worked in the Apostles for 3 ½ years and
this works in the whole of the church in this hour.
experienced something of this myself, I feel so unworthy of
God and the salvation that God has offered through His Son. This fear and love of God now beats in my breast and it speaks to
me in the night and it rends my heart in the day.
14:33-35 So likewise, whosoever
he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he
cannot be my disciple. Salt
is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall
it be seasoned? It is neither fit for the land (Dirt

around him), nor yet for
the dunghill; (Because the death in him he will
even kill the dung heap from turning back to usable soil)

ye have us for an ensample. For many

governed by fear.
Paul is telling the Philippians, weeping
as he is writing, that
many believers in his day in the Churches
that he had founded himself were no longer Disciples of Christ.
– Paul was seeing some of his works built with wood hay and
stubble were being burned up before his eyes
These Preachers Teachers and Believers
were walking in a fear and loathing of the cross.
They are seized with fear about the cross.
They are losing their own lives as well as their loved
ones lives. These were no longer the children of Abraham
in that they were no longer willing to leave and forsake anything,
therefore they never saw anything by the Spirit in Christ
that would justify them before God.
When tested, they were not willing to demonstrate their
love and fear of the Lord was above men, family, friends,
and even their own body.
Neither were these to follow in the footsteps of Christ
who forsook His inheritance as the firstborn in the house
of Joseph the Carpenter. He forsook those houses and lands and brothers, sisters, mother
and father, and as the messiah, he forsook the throne of David,
and the houses and lands, the wealth and the earthly power
that would have come with that.
Instead, He made himself of no reputation choosing
to wander by foot, under the scorching sun and in the rain.
He slept under the stars, in the rain and the cold.
He gave all he had to his disciples and the poor, and
then he withheld not His own body, or those whom he loved
the most. We need
to add here that the eleven Apostles and Paul understood these
things and followed Christ in these same footsteps.
In Philippians 3:17-19, in tears Paul is writing of the rise
of another Gospel and those who have discipled themselves
to a growing group of preachers and teachers – that out rightly
rejected the necessity of doing what Christ and the Apostles
did. They preached
a “selective” Gospel, one of Christ dying on the cross and
our being hearers of this, and Christ’s teachings and love
and of a salvation that is based upon a mental faith.
So instead of following Christ’s example, they were
walking and preaching a feel good gospel of earthly wealth
and prosperity. They
preached and taught their own glory and worthiness. -- What we are describing here is the Gospel of the Laodiceans.
hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again:
God shall cast them out of His belly. (This
is a sundering)
know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would
thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm,
and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.
Because thou sayest, I am rich,
and increased with goods, and have need of nothing;
and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and
poor, and blind, and naked:
Their spiritual guidance came from the lust
of their flesh, and of their end and their disciples end,
both Christ and Paul declare it as being destruction.
(A sundering and divorce from God in which these supposed occupants
will be vomited out into hell.)
Since I was a child, every pastor I have
ever heard preach on the end-times has declared we live in
the Laodicean age – but not one that I have ever heard or
read has declared we are preaching the Laodicean Gospel.
if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge
of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
But a certain fearful looking for
of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the
that oppose the true Gospel by preaching false Gospels and

denominations) He that despised
Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment,
(than instant earthly death) suppose ye, shall
he (who works as an agent
of the serpent among the Ek-Klesia) be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God,
(Being a disciple of Christ
alone and following His example) and hath counted the blood of the covenant (As E.W. Kenyon, Kenneth Hagin and Kenneth Copeland blatantly
teach,) wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy (Greek Koinon –
Common. Kenyon, Hagin
and Copeland teach that any man and their blood – would have
been equal in effect of Christ’s blood and death on the Cross.) thing, and hath done despite (Greek enubrisas
– To insult, to malign, to blaspheme. En – an instrument of, or a habitual act. Ubris violent, wantonness, insolence, contumelious treatment, outrage.) of the Spirit of grace?
In Hebrews we have an expanded definition of blasphemy of the Holy
Ghost – it is to trample underfoot (destroy
as the forth beast of Daniel) the Son of God (Specifically
His testimony, His example) and
hath counted (Accounted) the blood of the
covenant (Christ blood’s and
His death on the Cross) wherewith
he (The one speaking) was sanctified,

blood and death would have had as much effect as Christ’s
blood and death) Such make themselves instruments (of the serpent) by blaspheming
the grace of the Holy Spirit. (And
all who do such and partake of such shall be utterly destroyed.)
some may raise a skeptical eyebrow toward the notion that
Kenneth Hagin is burning in hell as we speak – for preaching,
teaching the sin and corruption he did in the Church.
Some may be even more dubious that his followers and
clones could possibly await the same fate as their lord and
master that they have willingly discipled themselves to.
Can we really afford to take a
wait and see attitude? Are we so stiff necked and arrogant that we
can say we don’t need to be Christ’s disciple alone, we do
not need to walk as He walked, we do not need to give up anything
of ourselves, or any of our earthly creature comforts, and
that by out mental willing of faith alone, we can save ourselves.
And that by our mental willing of faith we will be
able to blind God, so that he will not be able to see, sense,
or feel, any of our sin and uncleaness, so that He will let
us “as is” in heaven
to sit at His right hand with His Son in His Son’s throne? Can anyone assert with confidence that walks
in this part-time Gospel and part-time discipleship of Christ
that they are “The Elect of God,” that “They have been Predestinated
by God” to walk this way? or That by walking this part-time
walk “They have achieved Eternally Security” guaranteed
by Christ Himself?
Is it not rather that we, by
living in our own fantasy feel-good gospel, comprised of components
of our own choosing? (Do
we not select the church with the Gospel we like?) And that in this fantasy of our own making
we have our thin wealthy and handsome lover Christ who is
so lovesick and filled with passion over us that He is willing
to overlook that we are a 450 pound giggling pile of blubber,
unkempt and unwashed and dressed in filthy rags; a Bon-Bon
eating, daydreaming, couch potato, that neither cooks, nor
cleans, nor wants children, who wants’ only to be swept away
by her young thin wealthy lover to the castle of her dreams
where Christ and his servants will ever serve her every self-serving
whim and need.
Because we want
it so, it does not make it so.
Regardless of how long we confess, profess, and exert
our mental self-willed faith, our sinful corrupt and repugnant
standing before God, God cannot and will not change. In the end, we will be found to be exactly
what we are, for we shall be seen as we truly are: a betrothed bride covered with spots and wrinkles and therefore
we will be rejected and as the “bondwoman,” we shall be cast
out where there is weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.
we then continue to hold the confessing and profession of
the Laodiceans? Shall
we continue to assert, confess and profess that we are holy,
righteous, and just, before the Lord, and that we are rich
in all the things of the world, and we are rich in all the
things of the Spirit, and that we are therefore “in need of nothing?” The true
meaning of “in need of nothing” is: That we are willfully
entrenched in our chosen lifestyle and that we see no need
of repentance whatsoever. This lack of seeing is because we have become
blind and deaf as the Laodiceans, so that no amount of scripture,
no amount of preaching or teaching or no amount of conviction
of the Holy Ghost can reach us.
have put ourselves in such a place, that unless we are forced
by a direct act of God, such as weakness, sickness, death
or great tribulation, we will not willingly budge one inch
from our fantasy Gospel or give up one iota of our self-serving
and corrupt part-time lifestyle.
As a sign of this very thing occurring, increasing
churches are being filled with the sick and infirm who cannot
be healed out their wounds and infirmities and many are dying.
This is not the way things were at all when I first
believed in the early 1970’s.
One may well ask, how could any
of this possibly occurred while Paul and the other Apostles
were yet alive? The same things occurred in to the Ek-Klesia
in the Wilderness while Moses stood among them. Under the
watchful eye of Moses, the entire generation of those that
had been redeemed from Egypt and promised a land of milk and
honey instead perished in the wilderness.
All of these, save two men, were unable to enter into
the promises of God – they were all disqualified.
In the following
passages we find recorded God promising those that will be
delivered out of Egypt that He will bring them into a land
flowing with milk and honey.
Exodus 3:8 And
I am come down to deliver them
out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out
of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing
with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and
the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the
Hivites, and the Jebusites.
I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of
Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and
the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the
Jebusites, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.
13:5 And it shall be when the LORD
shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanites, and the
Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites,
which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a land flowing
with milk and honey, that thou shalt keep this service
in this month.
Numbers 14:18-23 (Moses pleading
with God) The
LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity
and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting
the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third
and fourth generation. Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people according unto
the greatness of thy mercy, and as thou hast forgiven this
people, from Egypt even until now. And the LORD said, I have pardoned according
to thy word: But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be
filled with the glory of the LORD. Because all those men which have
seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in
the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice; Surely they shall not see the land
which I sware unto their fathers, (Abraham Isaac and Jacob and
God also promised the land unto them) neither shall any of them that
provoked me see it:
Here God rescinds His promise
to this generation BECAUSE OF THEIR SIN.
God did not break his promise, nor did God lie – when
God promises something the disobedient and the corrupt do not enter in. They do not receive and they do not partake. Every promise in the book is
not mine, the majority of the promises were given to others
and those that are offered to believers through Christ are
not automatic – Paul and Christ repeatedly warn us that there
is a qualifying.
3:10-11 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They
do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.
Here, this disqualification
of not one or two people, not a household or a tribe, but
the whole of Israel. And
this fact is said to be so in the New Testament as well.
95:10-11 Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said,
It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not
known my ways: Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should
not enter into my rest.
us therefore fear, lest, the promise being left us of entering
into His rest, any of you should -- come short of it.
here is not talking to unsaved Hebrews, but to the “Hebrews
of the Spirit”-- the Church – And the warnings of Hebrews
are speaking of the coming fall that came upon the whole of
the Church in the second century.
Hebrews 3:19 So
we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
Hebrews 4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest,
lest any man fall (short) after their
same example of unbelief.
himself did not enter the Promised Land because of disobedience
and unbelief. That does not in any way lessen his walk or
testimony, and neither does it lessen the Apostles walk or
their testimony – instead, it should put the fear of God in
our hearts concerning the careless self-serving walk the church
has in this hour.
Luke 9:26-27 26 For whosoever shall be ashamed
of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed,
when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's,
and of the holy angels But I tell you of a truth,
there be some (not all) standing here, which
shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.
here promises some of his disciples will see this second coming
– this is prior to His death and all his disciples running
away and abandoning Him loving themselves and their lives
more than Christ and fearing men more than they feared God
– All the Apostles fled because of unbelief.
Now decidedly I do not have a
lot of passages to work with here.
John 21:20-23 Then Peter, turning
about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which
also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which
is he that betrayeth thee? Peter seeing him saith to Jesus,
Lord, and what shall this man do? Jesus saith unto him, If
I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow
thou me. Then went this saying abroad among the brethren,
that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto
him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I
come, what is that to thee?
can only note here that John himself takes special pains to
deny that after the resurrection of Christ that Jesus had
granted to John the disciple that He loved the most -- that
He would live to see Christ in His Second Coming and thus
enter into the millennial rest.
We note also that at the last supper the seats at Christ’s
right and left hand and presumably, that some of His disciples
would see Him in His Second Coming were still on the table,
but after Christ’s resurrection they were not.
Again, He limiteth a certain day, saying in David,
To day, after so long a time;
as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not
your hearts. For if Jesus had given them rest (The writer of Hebrews is declaring that the Apostles did not enter
into the rest they were promised) then would He not afterward
have spoken of another day. (Implying here that the Second coming and the millennium rest would
so long a time.”) There remaineth (in the distant future) therefore
millennial) rest to the people of God.
because of unbelief they were broken
off, and thou standest by faith. Be
not high-minded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural
branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
of these churches and denominations have all been broken off.
All of them are cut off from the Lord as are all those
who would submitted themselves unto them and their teachings.
As surely as all of these are sundered from one another
and they have no need of each other, these are all sundered
from the Lord. They are not one with one another and they
are not in Christ and Christ is not in them and they are not
one in Christ.
We need to come to firm grips with the fact
that whole of the early Church and the Apostles themselves
all perished in the wilderness (Christ did not come for them) and therefore none
lived to enter into the promise. As hard as this sounds the
Lord looked down upon that generation and they were found
wanting and they were rejected. God did not find in them that which was required
of them to Fear and Love the Lord with all their hearts, with
all their minds, and all their souls and all their strength. These feared men above God and loved their
own lives and loved ones above their love of the Lord.
What was required of Abraham was and is still required of the Children
of Abraham. And what
was required of Christ was and is still required of the disciples
So under the watchful eye of Paul and the
other Apostles, there arose the children of Korah.
And as Christ prophesied, God did not strike down
these children of the wicked one, but that until Christ would
return, that the children of the righteous and the children
of darkness would dwell side by side as wheat and tares.
And in this hour, some 1940 years later,
the “Church” is now a place where the few
strands of frail and withered wheat are being choked to death,
surrounded by the many
lively and robust tares that overshadow them from all sides. The lamp of the Lord is flickering and ready
to go out.
John the Apostle after returning to the Church
of Ephesus from decades of being imprisoned on the Isle of
Patmos testified of the following occurring in Ephesus and
the other churches he had contact with.
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist
shall come, even now are there many antichrists; (Within the church) whereby we know that it is the last time.
(These Antichrists) went out from (Among us)
us, (We preached to them,
we baptized them in water, they were baptized in the spirit,
they had gifts, they had callings, and
we laid hands on them) but they were not of us; for
if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued
with us: but they went out, (They
sundered themselves, preaching another Gospel and gathered
disciples to themselves.) that they might be made manifest
that they (all those who
we preached to and became part of the ek-klesia) were not all of us.
confession of Joshua and Caleb
“That we are well able to take the land” is one that is shouted and boasted of from every pulpit and platform
in bible believing churches of this day.
These confessions and professions are ones that are
driven by pride, greed, and personal aggrandizement of the
preacher, teacher, evangelist, church or ministry.
true confession and profession of Joshua and Caleb was one
which involved them counting the cost.
The true confession and profession of Joshua and Caleb
involved their leaving houses and lands and putting themselves
in harms way to see to the fulfillment of God’s calling and
purposes to the Ek-klesia as a whole.
We can rest assured that there were a lot of preachings
and teachings among the elders and princes of Israel of this
land flowing milk and honey that was promised unto these people,
and how that God was going to drive out all their enemies
before them -- until the day that the twelve spies returned
with reports of who was there and the time and of the great
personal risk that would have to be put forth by every eligible
male, every prince, and every elder in Israel – and suddenly
they shrunk back at the enormity of the
task they were called to do.
I see today that because they did not enter in with Moses
for the first 40 years it had a grave cost the entire nation
of Israel in the future.
when Joshua and Caleb entered in 40 years later, they were
not able to take all the land, and Israel never was able after
that to take all that God had promised Abraham.
So as prophesied by Moses the enemies in the land that
they did not overthrow eventually overthrew them by converting
all of Israel to their idolatries and perversions.
had they entered in with Moses for 40 years, Joshua and Caleb
would have followed him for another 40 years and the amount
of land taken and wiping out of the Canaanites would have
been far more thorough, and perhaps it might have even been
we look at the deliverers that God raised up in the bible,
they did not deliver themselves, or one particular tribe.
– God raised these men and women up to deliver the whole of
His people. Yet when
we look at the revivals in church history, we see salvation
wrought to a church, or to a denomination, or we see revival
occurring to a people of a region (The
Welsh revival, the French Huguenots, the Anabaptists,).
None of these revivals have been to all Churches, of all nations,
tongues and peoples, and by that we mean that none of these
revivals brought the Spirit of reconciliation and uniting
that which formerly was sundered, and none brought salvation
or deliverance to the whole of the sundered church.
may vehemently argue against these points, but the fact remains
the church and body of Christ has been sundered into somewhere
between 40,000-50,000 denominational pieces at the time of
this writing all of which are either eyes ears or mouths with
no use for each other.
if it may be known, our foremost leaders like Kenneth Hagin
( I realize he is deceased) and Kenneth Copeland would never
ever have forsaken their followers, their big churches, and
big houses and limos and Leer Jets to travel two by two, penniless
and on foot to preach the Gospel in Islamic countries to those
dwelling in tents and mud huts.
First there are the hoards of radical Islamists that
would seek to kill them, then there is living penniless, walking
by foot in the burning heat and dust, sleeping under the stars
and eating whatever these people may or may not share with
you in their village. In
the mission field and among evangelists there have been no
takers for these destinations and there have been no takers
for this kind of lifestyle.
and Caleb counted the cost and were willing to put themselves
at risk to the saving and deliverance of the whole of Israel.
enormity of the task of bringing forth an end-time people
from among all those that have been sundered and made unclean
in body, soul and spirit – is daunting to say the least.
Add to that the second part of this task, namely the
restoring of the foundations of the early church, doctrinally
and spiritually, along with the setting in order of the ministry
– even the smallest part of these tasks are quite frankly
beyond any of our capabilities, whether we remain sundered
or brought back together in unity.
Yet for me to say this is impossible or to suggest
that we should give up any hopes of this ever occurring before
Christ’s return, so we might as well seek only to preside
over some household church, or some little group, would be
an utter lie. There is a generation that shall accomplish
all of God’s will. The question is only which generation shall
step up to the plate forsaking all for the excellency of Christ?
cry of the Lord to every generation is recorded in John 17. The passage is largely ignored and seldom have
I heard it preached or taught on in the last 35 years.
I pray not
for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for
they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine;
and I am glorified in them. Holy Father, keep through thine
own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one,
as we are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them
in thy name. Those that thou gavest me I have kept. I pray
not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that
thou shouldest keep them from the evil (one). As thou hast sent me (Greek Apostlos)
into the world, even so have I also sent them (Greek Apostlos) into the world. And
for their sakes I sanctify myself,
that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That
they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in
thee, that they also may be one in us And the (Shekina) glory (of the Holy Spirit) which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even
as we are one: I in them,
and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one, that
the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved
them, as thou hast loved me. I have declared unto them thy name, and will
declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may
be in them, and I in them.
is so striking in Christ’s prayer, is we see Jesus Himself
praying over and over that His
disciples may be one – One with one another and one with Him. – Jesus says here He has given His followers the Shekina, and Jesus declares
he shall continue to preach truth and the name of the father
(even in death) so that His disciples, present and
future, might be one
with each other and one with Him. I find these words very sobering and convicting.
In light of all we have written, it appears very evident
that the wolf is in the henhouse and ripping the denominations
to shreds to the tune of over 33,000 sunderings, ripping the
churches to shreds to the tune of hundreds of thousands of
sunderings, and ripping Christian households to shreds to
the tune of 100 million sunderings of Divorce.
would appear that there is an ever so slight incongruity between
the Disciples of Christ and those who declare they are His
disciples in this hour. It would appear that there is an ever so slight
incongruity between the Church of the Thessalonians, the Philippians
or Ephesus, and the people that call themselves the church
today. Could it be that we are on a sidetrack? Could it be that we are following another Gospel
other than what Christ and the Apostles set forth? Could it be that we are not Christ’s disciples,
but the disciples of something or someone else? Could it be that we have lost our way and we
really do not know God and Christ the way we pretend we do?
with the moving of God’s Spirit, there comes times of great
revelation. There was an explosion of truth in the Methodist
Revival. There was
an explosion of truth in the Cain Ridge revival.
There was an explosion of truth in the Azusa Street
revival and the subsequent “Pentecostal” revival.
There was an explosion of truth in the so--called Latter
Rain revival. And there has been an explosion of truth in
the Charismatic revival.
Lord has told me by the Spirit that these so-called revivals
are not at all what men have supposed them to be in their
preaching and teachings. (We are speaking here of “Restoration
The Lord has spoken that this is not
even revival – He has not been resurrecting the corpse of
this disobedient and gainsaying Church so that it may live
again to define and corrupt another generation. (What
we call revival in actuality is God’s Spirit striving with
men. It is produced by a state described by the prophet Isaiah
“And He saw
that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor,
therefore His Arm brought salvation unto Him.” What men call Revival is Christ reaching out himself because
of a lack of righteous vessels available to make a people from those who are not a people.) The Lord has further
spoken that there has not been a progressive restoration going
on from supposed revival to revival as men have boasted. Despite
all the rhetoric, the fact is that there has not been the
restoration of a single office of the early church to its
former glory (And
this is the exact definition preached in the restorative Gospel.
-- Otherwise it is NOT restored.). And despite
all the rhetoric the gifts and operations of the Spirit have
been no different from the Ana-Baptist revival of 1530, the
Methodist revival 1750’s the Cain Ridge Revival of 1801, the
Azusa Street Revival of 1906, the Latter Rain Revival of 1948,
and the Charismatic revival of 1968. The supposed collective knowledge and wisdom
gleaned from all these revivals combined have not produced
a single manifested son of God. This collective wisdom and
knowledge of all the great Sages and Rabbis of these supposed
revivals has not brought forth a solitary person that speaks
the creative word of God as Christ walked in. Nor has all their “Spiritual” rhetoric and “Holy Ghost” preaching
produced a solitary person that rules in the heavenlies. We will throw in here that the combined power
of all these movements has not brought forth a single solitary
prophet of biblical stature.
have these revivals in fact produced?
Church splits, denominational splits, and now most
recently splits in households.
Compare this now with the words of Christ in
John 17 where Christ said He would give the Shekina Glory of God that His disciples
might be one. – men have taken these movings of the Spirit
and used them for divisiveness. They have taken the glory
of God and used it not to Glorify Christ or the Father, but
to glorify themselves, their churches, their ministry, and
their denominations just as Pentecostals and Charismatics
now advertise on the outside of their churches with symbols
of the glory and fire of God.
And the LORD said, My Spirit shall not always strive with
man, for that he also is (Corrupt and sinful) flesh.
Lord has spoken to me that what men call revival is His Spirit
striving with men. Revival has been recently defined by arrogant
men as: “One calling God down into their midst.”
But historically, revival, beginning in the book of
Judges, has always been in the absence of any men speaking,
teaching, or preaching truth God himself has acted alone again
and again and again that He might have a people.
7:17-19 What is man, that thou shouldest magnify
him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him? And
that thou shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every
moment? How long wilt thou not depart from
me, (Lift from me the visitation
of your Spirit Job is declaring that the refiners fire and
fullers soap of God’s visitation is more here than he
can bear.) nor let me alone till I swallow
down my spittle? (Job here affirms
Genesis 6:3 that the purpose of God’s visitation is
to strive with men. [The doctrine of Job is God visits men
to bring men into a deeper state of spirit])
Job 8:1-7 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite,
and said, How long wilt thou speak these things? and how long
shall the words of thy mouth be like a strong wind? Doth God
pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?
If thy children have sinned against him, and he have
cast them away for their transgression; If thou wouldest seek
unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty;
If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for
thee, and make the habitation (Household)
of thy righteousness prosperous. Though
thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly
increase. (Bildad wrongly asserts
here [The current madness that is preached in our day] that
the purpose of the Lord’s visit is to bless and prosper
men. [The doctrine of Bildad is that God comes to give men
a flesh feast])
7:2 . . . And His heart was moved, and the
heart of His people, as the trees of the wood are moved with
manifestation of God’s Spirit in “So called” revival are His
striving with men. God
is not striving here to make men feel good in their sin. The
coming and movings of His Spirit is not a stamp of approval
upon a preacher, a ministry, or a Church,
no more than God calling out to the child Samuel in the temple
during the ministry of Eli was a stamp of approval of Eli.
It was and is a warfare, a striving against the kingdom
of darkness that in the day of Eli had entered and taken over
the ministration of the Tabernacle of Moses and was about
to extinguish the light of the candlestick of the testimony
of Israel before God. God
no longer strove with Eli or those in the house of Eli for
they were children of Belial (the serpent). God instead strove with a small child of tender
heart, one that did not yet know the depths of sin and iniquity.
the great revelation of God’s striving and movings among men
is great revelation on the human condition.
A great revelation of sin, of the righteousness of
God, and of the assured coming judgment of God and the destruction
of the sinful and corrupt church that lords itself over God’s
heritage, the seed of the righteous.
God speaks to this young whelp of a child Samuel of these
very things and of the destruction of the house of Eli forever.
Eli knew that God speaking to Samuel was the beginning
of the judgment of God beginning in the house of God with
these so called revivals of God moving from one people to
another people over and over and in each of these movings
there is also the beginning of the judgment of God beginning
in the former house where the people are taught to disobey,
ignore, and reject, His strivings with men.
the last few revivals a firewall has been built by men blocking
any revelation of sin, any revelation of the righteousness
of God and what demands that might have upon sinful and corrupt
men, and any revelation to the coming judgment and destruction
of all that calls itself the church that lords itself over
God’s heritage and seed.
firewall against the Spirit of God striving with men, is first
the complete sundering of the fear of God. That those who
fear God are ignorant and mere babes and make themselves a
prey unto the devil. The firewall is that we, of the lowly laity, cannot and must not
see sin in one another and especially we of the lowly laity
cannot and must not see sin or corruption in the ministry
over us – for to see any of this would be to touch God’s anointed
and bring the wrath and curses of God upon us and not upon
the corrupt and sinful ministry of the house of Eli. For there can be no discernment nor reproof
or correction in the body of Christ – all must remain deaf,
blind, ignorant and naked before God.
And in prophesy, it is only to make us feel good about
ourselves in our corrupt state and to exalt our sinful flesh.
Can we see in these what the children of belial of
this hour are in fact teaching?
doctrines and teachings encourage God’s people to slumber. Their doctrines and teachings strengthen and
reinforce the veil that has been cast over whole of the church
– that blinds us in worship, in prayer and even in the reading
of Scripture. Their doctrines and teachings create and reinforce
the Laodicean state that is in the church.
that when the Lord comes, instead of producing the fear of
God, repentance and unity, it is used to celebrate our sin
and corruption, and further entrench us in our rebellion and
disobedience, and it is used to sunder families, sunder churches,
and sunder denominations.
are the devises of the enemy in our midst that we shout and
sing and confess and profess that we are not ignorant of,
and that these are the devices that we shout and sing and
confess and profess that they have no power over us. The fact is that the church is completely and
utterly overthrown by these devices – among all those who
would call themselves bible-believing Christians.
These things have not occurred among Roman Catholics
or Lutherans or Episcopalians, this assault and warfare has
been and still is occurring among bible believing Christians
– this is no accident. This
in the bible is called the mystery of iniquity.
Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work (among us)
may feel here that they may as well throw their hands up in
despair – and pray the Lord may somewhere, someday, raise
up someone else, and some other people to deal with this mess.
That is a wrong answer. That is the answer of the ten spies with their self-serving fleshing
reports, and essentially this is what has been done by every
generation before us. The question is what are we going to
do about this? Or should I say what are we willing to do about this?
cannot answer for you as you cannot answer for me. And neither
I by myself, nor you by yourself “Bring
to silence the Enemy and the Avenger” in the midst of the Ek-Klesia.
they (You and
I and all those who would join us) overcame him (The
enemy and the avenger) by the blood of the Lamb, (unto our
cleansing and forgiveness of all unrighteousness) by the word of their testimony;(Our
preaching of sin righteousness and the judgment) and they loved not their lives unto the death. (Fearing and loving God above men and their loved ones they
willing placed themselves in harm’s way at the behest of the
Holy Spirit.) These are they that
shall bring to silence the Enemy and the Avenger. These are
they that shall bring his devices to naught.
question is are we willing to leave the comfort of our walled churches
and go out into the wilderness with our household to meet
with God and stay there until we have a life changing meeting
with him? The question is are we willing to leave the comfort of our
ivory castles to walk among men who are all created in the
image and likeness of God to strive with them in the same
manner as the Spirit of God does about sin righteousness and
the judgment? And then the final question is do we love and fear God more than men who can kill the body only,
and in this do we love our lives and the lives of our
loved ones more than we love and fear God so that we as the
prophets of old, and as Christ and as the Apostles are willing
to put ourselves in harms way to preach to all men nations
and tongues the everlasting Gospel becoming jealous not for
our carnal and fleshly needs and desires but jealous over
the seed of God that He might indeed have a people and a bride
without spot and wrinkle.
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom
