The Sundering of the Church

Genesis 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?

We 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.

Perhaps 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 alone.

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.

According 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 Denominations.

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.

2 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 over , or as stated below in Ephesians To Give place to the devil.

Ephesians 4:26-28 Be 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 devil?  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 captives.)

This word  anti-tithemenos is used only one time in the Septuagint to which Paul added the word Dia (to sunder) to it.

Leviticus 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 households.

Hebrews 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.

Jude 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) garment (they wear) spotted by the flesh. (Lest you be defiled as well.)
Jude 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 them out.

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 yonder place.

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 declared:

Psalm 8:2-8 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings (Adam and Eve – newborn babes in Christ) hast thou ordained (Septuagint: praise, Ainon – to Praise, or To celebrate Hebrew: 3245 Yasad – To lay a foundation, to establish, to found.) Strength.

The 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.

Luke 19:37-40And 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.

Paul speaks of this very thing:

1 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, (this 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.)

John 3:2-5 The 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.

For when 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 doctrine.)

So that 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 this world.

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.

For when 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 sainthood.)  Being 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.

So from 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 forth.

What Christ 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.

In having 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 (Septuagint: praise, Ainon – 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 Fortification.)

We 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 Fortification.)

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).
We 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 (Greek 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 the Shekina.)

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.  ***Some erroneously 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’.

Hosanna (Jehovah’s glory has appeared to come to heal us in) the son of David; they (the 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?
What was 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)

Psalm 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.)

David 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.

When 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 men.

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.

Thou 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.

Speaking once 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 dominion, 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 it.

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 brought forth.

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.

1 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.

Luke 18:13 And 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.

Isaiah 29:13 Wherefore 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.

Mark 7:6 He 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.

Where are all the Latter Rain prophets they hail?  They are by enlarge dead, which was not at all what these men professed, confessed, prophesied or taught.

Where are all the Latter Rain healing evangelists they hail?  They are by enlarge dead having died of sickness and disease which was not at all what these men professed, confessed, prophesied or taught.

Where are all the Latter Rain and deeper life teachers they hail? ,They are by enlarge dead, which was not at all what these men professed, confessed, prophesied or taught.

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.

Deuteronomy 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

Deuteronomy 24:16  The 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 unto righteousness?

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.)

There 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.

Sins 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.

If 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.

But 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.

Mary 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.

For 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.

Peter 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.

When I was first saved Preachers routinely glaze over Peter's sins and call helffire and damnation on their parishioners, and the unsaved

Now 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.

We 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.

Joshua 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 and 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.)

Zechariah 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, (The 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 these (Angels) that stand by (God’s throne).

Resisting 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.

Psalm 144:3 LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of (fellowship with) him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him! Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

Ephesians 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 (made) known by (Greek Dia through) the church (by) the manifold wisdom of God.

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.

Ecclesiastes 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 before Him.)

Here Solomon now speaks of things that Christ wrought for the Ek-klesia.  Things that no man, regardless of what they religiously confess, profess or teach, could do for themselves.

There is no man (who walks in the flesh) that hath power over the Spirit (of God) to retain the spirit; (to retain the indwelling Ezer and Boethos, The indwelling Holy Spirit as Helper, and Counselor, and comforter, even the Para-Kletos of God) neither hath he (He who walks in the flesh) power in the day of death: and there is no discharge (Hebrew -- Honor or reward) in (they) that war. (After the flesh and fight carnally)

Here Solomon speaks now of believers and others who have been ensnared by the devil – these prisoners of darkness that were to be set at liberty by Christ.
Neither shall wickedness
(the wicked one) deliver those that are given to it (those who have become enslaved by his earthly and sensual spirit). All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun: there is a time wherein one man (The carnal, enslaved by the evil one, Talmudized believer.) ruleth (forcibly) over another (The ek-klesia) to his own hurt.
Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil, and part of this was His coming to destroy Talmudic doctrine, Talmudic tradition and Talmudic rule. -- For it shall not be so among you. This shall not even be named among My disciples – those who walk after the Spirit.

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 of the land.  Here, Christ addresses the void that will be created in His departing from the disciples and what is to fill that void.

John 14:15-16
If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the father and He shall give you another comforter (Greek Parakletos Literally a Helper, and a Counselor. This is speaking of fulfillment in Genesis 2:18 of the Holy Spirit being our Ezer and Boethos) that he may abide (Greek Mene To dwell, To lodge, To sojourn) with you forever. Even the Spirit of truth whom the world cannot receive because it seeth him not neither knoweth him but ye know him (These unregenerate Apostles, and the others who had come to Him for healing and deliverance, had by so doing in limited measure, already knew and heard God’s voice via the Breath of God given unto Adam, and God’s Spirit striving externally with men.) for He dwelleth with (Greek Par To be beside) you and shall (Future tense) be in you

This is the indwelling Spirit of God that Paul speaks of as abiding within the temple of the Holy Ghost.

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.

In the first few books of the Bible we see that men were once extremely cognizant of their being created in the Image and Likeness

Genesis 20:6 And 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.

Genesis 39:9 (Joseph said) There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how 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.

Genesis 42:22 And 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 God.

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.  In partaking of this: You cannot be Christ’s disciple and the disciple of another.  You cannot be His disciple without becoming His servant that is to be bought with the price of His blood.  This servanthood is absolute, it is in body, it is in soul, and it is in spirit.  You cannot be His bought servant and be your own Master negotiating your own deals and terms as you go alone. – There are no free agents in Christ.

Only those that seek to enter into this discipleship unto Christ alone and enter with all their heart, with all their mind, and all their soul and all their strength into this servanthood of Christ – As Joshua did and the Apostles did, will be endued with power on high to be able to enter in and possess the land.

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.

Genesis 1:26-27 And 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.

Interestingly 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.

Revelation 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 (blood soaked from all of its centuries or religious wars, persecutions and murders) beast, full of names of blasphemy, (These 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.

The Protestants 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.”

Isaiah 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 away.

The 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.

In 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 of God.

Job 15:4 Yea, thou (that) castest off (the) fear (of God), restrainest (thy) prayer before God.

Deuteronomy 10:12 And 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 are not.

Jesus declares: 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 darkness.

So 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.

This 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.

Instead, 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.

Job 20:15 He hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again: God shall cast them out of His belly. (This is a sundering)

Revelation 3:15-17 I 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.

Isaiah 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:
Here 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 suffered; (All he was to suffer in the hands of sinful men and then with the giving of His own self in death on the Cross.)
Christ once again leads the way walking and demonstrating what His true disciples are to walk in.

Luke 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.
This passage 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 to Timothy
2 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.

Ecclesiastes 12:12-14 And further, by these, my son, be admonished of (the) making many books (of which) there is no end; and (partaking of) much study (in which) 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.

Revelation 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) Fear 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.

Elsewhere we have written that the term “Preacher” is hyphenated from Preacher of Righteousness. –and that the True Gospel is the preaching of: Sin Righteousness 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 12:4-6, 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.

1 John 4:18-21 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 (Greek 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, That he 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.

This 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 or circumcised.

This 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.

2 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.)

This darkness and death worked in the Apostles for 3 ½ years and this works in the whole of the church in this hour.

Having 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.

Luke 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 of the field because the death in him will kill all that is 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) but men cast it out (Sunder it). He that hath ears to hear.

Philippians 3:17-19 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies (Ech-Throus) of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.

The word Enemies in the Greek is: Ech-Throus which is a compound word Eche – means to seize, or to seize up and Throus means Those that have fear, or Those whom are 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.

Job 20:15 He hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again: God shall cast them out of His belly. (This is a sundering)

Revelation 3:15-17 I 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.

Hebrews 10:26-30 For 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 adversaries. (Those that oppose the true Gospel by preaching false Gospels and making men disciples of themselves, their churches, and their 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, as common. (That any man’s 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.)

While 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.

Shall 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. 

We 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.  

Exodus 3:17 And 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.

Exodus 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.

Hebrews 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.

Psalm 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.

Hebrews 4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, the promise being left us of entering into His rest, any of you should -- come short of it.
The “Us” 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.
Moses 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.

Christ 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?
We 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.

Hebrews 4:7-9 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 occur “After so long a time.”) There remaineth (in the distant future) therefore a (the millennial) rest to the people of God.

Romans 11:20-22 Well; 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.
The branches 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 of Christ.

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.

1 John 2:18-19 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. They (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.

The 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.

The 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 was one

that 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.

And 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.

For 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.

So 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 completed.

When 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.

Some 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.

And 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.

Joshua and Caleb counted the cost and were willing to put themselves at risk to the saving and deliverance of the whole of Israel.

The 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?

The 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.

What 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.

It 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?

Along 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.

The 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 Teachings.”)  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. 

What 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.

Genesis 6:3 And the LORD said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is (Corrupt and sinful) flesh.

The 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.

Job 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])

Isaiah 7:2 . . . And His heart was moved, and the heart of His people, as the trees of the wood are moved with the wind.

The 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.

Within 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.

And 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 him.

And 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.

Within 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.

This 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? 

Their 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.

So 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.

These 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.

2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work (among us)

Some 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?

I 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.

Revelation 12:11And 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.

The 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.

Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence (Greek Zetai to seek to look for orto search for) , and the violent (Greek Biastai Those who press forward, those who fervently move into it, those who eagerly pursue after it ) take it by force (Greek Arpa-Lousiv to seize, to eagerly grasp, to lay hold unto the receiving of.)

The way that KJV translates this verse it encourages violence. (Forbidden by Christ) It encourages Christians ruling, exerting force, and ruling with force over one another and over the gentiles (Forbidden also by Christ) And it encourages believers to demand and command God as if He were your servant. (Christ commanded us to Fear God.) This verse was intentionally translated this way in order that this passage to support the Churches Talmudic the Roman Catholic and Calvinistic activities involving the preaching the Gospel by the sword, and the Anglican Church’s ruling over the gentiles by Talmudic legislation.

(A better rendering of this verse would be)
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom haven is being eagerly sought, and those who fervently press forward into it receive to the partaking of that which they have sought.

Matthew 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him (This is a command not a request) deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

2 Corinthians 4:9-11 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are always (We continually as individual members of His body being) delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our (The individual members of His body’s) mortal flesh.
This is the manifestation of the power of God and it only occurs as one is sold out, and one willingly places themselves in harm’s way as Christ leads them and guides them to strive with men about sin righteousness and the judgment.

Luke 14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple

Romans 14:8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's. (This only is to those who indeed have sold out, those are His disciples alone.)

Though we are a people of small stature and of little power I perceive by the Spirit that: Numbers 14:8 If the LORD delight in us, then He will bring us into this land, and give it (to) us.
