INTRODUCTION AND FOUNDATION

The Book of Revelation actually begins in Genesis.

Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

This is the beginning of what is being revealed in the Book of Revelation. This is the manifesting that is NOW coming into being. This is the manifesting of God’s finished work.

This Book of Revelation can be taught in many ways. It can be taught subject by subject and chapter by chapter. I will, probably use both ways to express my understanding of the Book of Revelation. Some teach Revelation historically, some futuristically, there are many ways that it is taught. I have come to understand what the Holy Spirit meant when the bible spoke about not being able to hold all that could have been written. This book, that I am writing, could never hold all truth that has been given.

I, in no way mean to say that only my understanding, of this book, is all there is to be understood. For every understanding that I have, I am sure that many can and will add to it, even more understanding. And every day, more of God’s understanding is rising in many of us, and every day, more could and probably will be written by many, and it is welcome.

Most teach this book as a book of fear; but, most of all, the books that I have read, teach this book as the REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST. I will not teach this book as the Revealing of Jesus; but, of the revealing of US! Those of us who come to know and manifest our TRUE IDENTITY. Hallelujah!!

Most teach this book as a SEPARATE book from all the other 65 books of the bible; and this book CANNOT be taught, separate from the other 65. This book is a combination of all those 65 books. And this book of Revelation cannot be taught without knowing those other 65 books. From Genesis through Jude, must be understood in order to understand the Book of Revelation.

Most teach this Book of Revelation, with the thought, that this book is about the future. They think that this prophesy is to be fulfilled, in the future. But, 95% of this book is already fulfilled. There is a part of the book that shall be fulfilled or manifested, and is presently being fulfilled or manifested. As we will see as we go through this writing.

I want to lay a foundation for this teaching. And that foundation begins in the Book of Genesis.

Genesis 3:15 “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”

Now here, God is speaking to the serpent. “I will put enmity between thee and the woman, between THY seed and HER seed:” The word enmity means; hostility or hatred. This shows me that the serpent HAD A SEED. The seed was present, at that time. And the woman’s seed was present, in the mind of God. “and thy shall bruise his heel.” THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION!

From that time on, the Seed begins to come forth.

From Genesis through Malachi, the Seed comes.

From Matthew, through Mark, Luke and John, the Seed dies.

In Acts, the Seed lives.

Throughout the epistles, the Seed speaks.

And in Revelation, the Seed reigns.

So, we must understand that throughout ALL the books, THE SEED IS PRESENT! The Seed is CHRIST. The Seed is NOT JESUS. The Seed is CHRIST!

I want to explain my understanding of this word “Christ”. Most think that “Christ” is or was a part of Jesus’ name. It is not. Look at the beginning of His ministry. He was called JESUS CHRIST. At the end of His ministry He was called CHRIST JESUS. Why would they change His last name to become His first name? The word “Christ” means anointed or anointing. This tells us that whatever name is used with the word “Christ,” is “the anointed of God.” EX: Linda Christ, or Linda the anointed of God. But, notice this: Jesus walked out of being under the ANOINTING of God, into becoming THE ANOINTING!! The flesh man, Jesus, came to be a PATTERN for us to follow. This word “anointing”, is simply THE VERY LIFE OF GOD.

The little word “of” means, out from within. The anointing or life is OUT FROM WITHIN GOD. It is HIS LIFE. And the flesh man, Jesus, walked out of BEING, Jesus the anointed of God, to become the Anointing, Himself, God’s Life. He actually MANIFESTED the Christ, or the Life of God. As we go through all the books of the bible, we see the Christ (or the Life of God) manifesting! Hallelujah! The words Jesus Christ speaks of Jesus’ earthly ministry. The words Christ Jesus speaks of His Heavenly or Spiritual ministry. His Heavenly ministry is the position that the Son RETURNED to, which is Fatherhood. While Jesus walked the earth, He was our brother. When He returned to His previous position, from the beginning, He became our Father and NOW we are awakening to the knowing that it is HIS AS US. We are One IN HIM.

John 17:5 “And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thy own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.”

This word “with” can be interpreted as “IN”. As He returned to Fatherhood, we moved into Sonship. But, this was not to be our last step of our journey back to where we were brought forth from, from within God.

When we get to the Book of Revelation 1:1, the Seed is being revealed and manifested.

The word “Revelation” means; to reveal something that is hidden. It also means, to UNCOVER and make clear. I love this word, UNCOVER because He is UNCOVERING OUR TRUE IDENTITY that lies covered by this body of flesh. This body of flesh that we have mistakenly thought WAS our identity is NOT our Identity. But, our True Identity simply uses this flesh body as a vehicle. The same way, this flesh body uses an automobile as a vehicle. This body is just to show Him, or for Him to be seen in this realm of flesh and the realm of visibility. He that lives in the flesh body. And by giving us understanding of the Book of Revelation, we see that God intended on revealing US or UNCOVERING US, THE REAL US. The Christ or God’s Life. We are told in many places in the bible, that God planned on revealing everything to us.

Colossians 1:26 “Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but NOW IS MADE MANIFEST to his saints.”

1 Corinthians 2:9-10 “But as it is written, eye hath not seen, not ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit; for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”

Romans 16:25-26 “Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began. but NOW IS MADE MANIFEST, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith.”

Matthew 13:35 “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.”

Ephesians 3:8-12 “Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; and to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: to the intent that NOW unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus, our Lord: in whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.”

1 Corinthians 2:7 “But we speak wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory.”

This secret that has been hidden since the foundation of the world, IS OUR TRUE IDENTITY. HIM!!

Acts 17:28 “For IN HIM we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, for we are also his offspring.”

Now, let me say something here. Don’t get too hooked on being God’s OFFSPRING, because as we will see, further on in this writing, WE GO BEYOND being His offspring. And “in Him” does not mean that there is me AND Him, I AM IN HIM; ONE WITH HIM. THIS is our True Identity and what has been hidden, but NOW IS BEING MADE KNOWN TO US.

The church system has taught us many things, in error. But, NOW is the time for His Truth, AND our Truth to be seen. And we will SEE this, in the first chapter and the first verse of the Book of Revelation, when we get to it.   IF YOU SEARCH IT OUT, YOU WILL FIND THAT JESUS NEVER TAUGHT SONSHIP!!  HE TAUGHT ONLY THE FATHER AND FATHERHOOD.

The Book of Revelation was intended BY GOD, to UNCOVER this truth, for us to understand it. God’s intent has been that not one mystery is left unknown, by us. IT IS THE REVELATION OF THE CHRIST. Not the revelation of Jesus. Jesus had already been revealed GENERATIONS BEFORE THIS BOOK WAS EVER WRITTEN!!

Think about it, folks.

In the original writing, the words Jesus Christ, is only used one time. Every other place, in this Book of Revelation that you see the words Jesus Christ it should be omitted. It should read, Christ. And the only place that Jesus Christ is written in the original is in chapter one and verse one. Because what is being revealed is Christ, Head and Body. And Jesus, as I said before, had already been revealed. John walked with Jesus, so it is not the flesh man Jesus, being revealed.

This Book of Revelation is a book of faith, not fear. It is a book of faith, in so much so, that Jesus said, “Behold”. Anytime that you see the word, “behold”, it means, take careful notice, I am going to show you something that you have not known, up until now. He is about to reveal something that has not been revealed yet. Why careful notice is needed in this book, is because He is going to reveal something that is hard to believe and it will take faith to believe it.

This Book of Revelation is precious in the heart of God. This book is the only book out of all 66 books, where He says, “Blessed is the man who reads and they that hear the words of this prophecy… and keep. (Rev. 1:3) Reading means, RECEIVING this book. The word “keep” means, to protect. Turn to Revelation 22. I will show you how important and precious this book or prophesy is to God.

Revelation 22:18-19 “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book; And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

This shows us just how important this book is to God. For instance, if God tells us that we are brought forth out of Him and that we are in His Image; which means, IF He is Spirit Being, then WE are a Spirit Being, and we insist that we are HUMAN, what are we doing? Not only are we taking away from His Word, BUT we are ADDING to it.

We hear a lot of people say, when they talk about this book, The Book of Revelations. It is NOT plural. It is the Book of THE Revelation. All of the whole book is just one Revelation, one prophecy. This is the longest prophecy in the bible.

These are just some of the things that we need to understand about this book:

1. We need to understand that this is NOT the revealing or the uncovering about Jesus. But the Christ. The

Christ is a people, not Jesus.

2. God is revealing these things to John. John walked, talked, ate with and loved Jesus, the man. God is NOT

revealing that same Jesus to John. He is revealing a people, the Christ, God Himself.

3. There are three people in this book. People who overcome and people who do not overcome, and the

unknowing.

4. This revelation is in 3 dimensions. (a) it is GIVEN. VS 1 (b) it was SENT. VS 1 (c) it was signified, OR God

ok’d it. VS 1.

5. This revelation is connected with all 65 of the other books of the bible.

6. This revelation is a book of faith.

7. The theme of this book is war. War against the saints; war against God; war against the enemy.

8. The issue of this war is, dominion.

9. This book is about a people who come to know their TRUE IDENTITY.

We need to understand the people that God is speaking of in this book. There are those who are called by His name and are living it. Then, there are those who are His people, but they are blaspheming His name. To blaspheme His name does not mean to take His Word out of context, or to take His name in vain by cussing, it means to be called by His name, but not acting like Him. That is taking the name of the Lord in vain. Blasphemy is DENIAL WHO WE TRUELY ARE. They are acting like the “unsaved” and yet calling themselves by His name. But, God knows that the blasphemy that is taking place leads to something and it leads to Idolatry. And this is the life we have been living, by denying our True Identity. But, as we know, His Plan has been laid, and is finished and ALL will come into HIS KNOWLEDGE of their Identity.

We also, must understand that this book is written in symbolic language. It cannot be understood with the natural mind.

Chapter 1 and verse 20 shows us this. This particular verse IS explained to us, in the same verse, showing us that this book IS written in symbols. But, we must depend on the Holy Spirit to bring forth understanding all through this whole book.

Although the Book of Revelation is clearly stated, a prophecy, we must understand that the symbols used in the writing, is written in the time period of its own day. The date of the writing of the Book of Revelation was 66AD. So, it was in the background of that time.

Prophecy is often given to show something of the future, but written in terms of the present time it actually was written in. A lot of people don’t understand that IF you study the culture of a time, and cultural beliefs, and the way things were worded in that particular time period, MUCH will be seen differently, than they way we see things today.

We must understand that John did see the things that he wrote of. But, he did not know what these things were, so he had to interpret the things that he saw, in the knowledge of the things he did know and tell in the knowledge of HIS DAY.

Before, we get into the Book of Revelation; let’s look at some truths about John. John truly had an out of body experience, which the bible will show us this. So, be open-minded. Don’t put God and His Word in a box that He is just now coming out of. Remember when we use to be warned by our church leaders; “Don’t read this, don’t read that, it is of the devil. Don’t fellowship with these people, or those people, they are New Agers. If you read this or that, you will be taken into darkness.” Do you remember that? Well, I am here to tell you, that GOD IS ALL IN ALL. IF your dependence is in Him, you cannot get into anything that He isn’t a part of. So, just stay openminded. So, let’s look at some facts about John, the teller of the prophecy that we will be going through.

Revelation 1:9-10 “I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet.”

John was a flesh man and had been banished to the Isle of Patmos that was solid ground, a dry and barren place. John was banished to this Isle because of his following Jesus and for his testimony of Jesus. John was known as the “beloved” of Jesus. John walked with Jesus, ministered with Jesus. John was very close to Jesus. He knew Jesus probably better than any of the disciples. And now, here in the Book of Revelation, he is telling us that us that he is testifying of that flesh man, Jesus. Now, this tells us, or it should tell us, that John IS NOT revealing the man, Jesus, here in this book. Jesus had already been revealed long before John wrote this prophecy. Remember John saw Jesus transfigured, upon the Mount. John knew Jesus, John experienced Jesus and John walked, talked, ate, travelled, and saw Jesus revealed. So, there is no way that John was being shown in this Revelation, the man John at walked with. John was being given a revelation to another Person. (as we will see)

We see where it says, “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day…” In the original writing, this is worded differently. It reads, “I BECAME in the Spirit.” His flesh body was on the Isle of Patmos, but he “became in the Spirit.” Notice, it doesn’t say that John fell asleep, or had a vision, he became in the spirit.

We are Spirit Beings, because we are in the image of God, and so was/is John. What is so surprising about a Spirit Being, being found in the Spirit realm? We do not leave the earth to be in the Spirit. To be in the Spirit is a state of being. As we all know, we can so easily find ourselves in His Presence one minute, and the next minute be thinking with the carnal mind. We need to get rid of all this “religious” thinking about being in the Spirit.

Let’s look at another scripture that shows us the same thing.

Revelation 22:8-9 “And I John saw these things, and heard them. (now remember that John was physically on earth, on the Isle of Patmos) And when I had heard and seen, I FELL DOWN TO WORSHIP BEFORE THE FEET OF THE ANGEL which shewed me these things. Then said he to me, See thou do it not (don’t worship me): FOR I AM THY FELLOW SERVANT, AND OF THY BRETHREN THE PROPHETS, AND OF THEM WHICH KEEP THE SAYING OF THIS BOOK; …WORSHIP GOD.”

Now, who was telling this to John? A brother, a fellow servant of God, or one of them that keeps (protects) the saying of this book. Was this brother on the Isle of Patmos? No. He was a brother that was in the invisible realm, or what is known as the realm of the Spirit. All of this WAS NOT happening in John’s mind; John was in the invisible realm just as was Paul, when he told us that he had been in the third heaven. After all, John and Paul (and you and I) are Spirit Beings. What makes it so hard for anyone to believe that we can step out of the flesh body and enter into the realm that we came from? We ARE to have dominion over all things; and that includes our flesh bodies. John had an out of body experience, here.

It is my desire to share what I have been given. I pray that our ears and eyes be opened; even more that they have already been opened. I ask that you lay aside what you have been taught, previously, and just remain open to what the Spirit will witness to us. Our God is an ever moving God, and is still awakening us to all that He has given us, for we HAVE RECEIVED HIS FULLNESS, if we will just take hold of that fullness and let it rise from within us.

So, think about these things that have been said, so far, and be open, then go on with the study of the Book of Revelation.

PART ONE

As I said, I am not sure in what order this study will take place. I will be doing the first chapter, verse by verse, which we will see the foundation of the Book of Revelation. After this first chapter, I will be skipping around from chapter to chapter, as each chapter gives understanding to all the chapters.

Revelation 1:1 “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:”

The first thing we need to understand is this little word “of”. “Of” means, out from within. This word changes the understanding immediately, of this first verse. Reading the first five words, WITHOUT knowing what the word “of” means, gives the impression that this revelation is about Jesus Christ. But, read those first five words WITH the knowing of the meaning of the word, “of.

“The Revelation out from within Jesus Christ.” Do you see how missing the meaning of a word can change the understanding of something? This revelation is NOT about Jesus, it is coming out from within Jesus and God gave the revelation to Jesus, to show his servants things which must shortly come to pass.

The word “servants” means “bond servants. A bond servant is one who has shackles on your feet and you only walk where He tells you to walk. A “bond servant” has shackles on your wrists and you only carry the ministry where He wants you to carry it. The “hand” is symbolic of ministry; and the wrist is the support of the hand.

To show unto his servants (bond servants) things which must shortly come to pass;” Now, remember, this is NOT the revealing of Jesus; Jesus is doing the revealing. This is taking place in 96AD. And John is being told, these things that must SHORTLY come to pass; not way off in the future. That was 96Ad, in 130AD part of the prophecy began to be fulfilled, because in 130AD, the church started to walk in idolatry. What the church did in 130AD, was to eliminate the prophet and the apostle from the five fold ministry. John died around, approximately, 100AD.

And he sent and signified it by his angel unto his bond servant, John.”

VS 2 “Who bare record of the word of God, In the original this reads, “who was a living witness of the Word of God. Who was the Word of God? Jesus. And of the testimony of …” this word testimony is L-I-F-E, “and of the Life of Jesus Christ and of all things that he saw”.

VS 3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep (or protect) those things which are written therein; for the time IS AT HAND.

We have to keep in mind, WHEN Jesus is talking; WHERE Jesus is talking at; WHO Jesus is talking to; what realm He is speaking out of; ALL these things must be kept in mind to understand all of this. John is being told, “John, these things are at hand, they are available RIGHT NOW.” The things that Jesus is going to tell John, WAS available then, in 96AD. Remember the bible tells us that even in the days of the writings of the New Testament that the “last days” were already there. So, all that Jesus is revealing to John was available.

VS 4 “JOHN to the seven churches which are in Asia: Notice, that the word “JOHN” is in all capitals. Up until now, the Holy Spirit had been speaking. This capitalization shows that NOW JOHN is going to take over telling what all happened. In the day of the writing of the original bible, capitals were not used; it wasn’t divided into chapters and verses; but in the translation, I believe it was inspired to show us when the speaker changed.

“Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;” Please know, that he which is to come, is not about Jesus coming back to the earth to rapture all the Christians off the face of the earth. We will find out Who this is, that is to come, in just a bit. And let me say here, “the seven Spirits” are really ONE SPIRIT. UNITED!! There is only ONE SPIRIT. (Eph. 4:4-6)

VS 5 “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth.” Ok, now listen closely to this. Jesus Christ is the prince of the kings of the earth; which means that the prince is the son of the kings; and the word son means servant. (Son of God, Son of man=servant of God, servant of man). Ok, Jesus Christ is the prince of the kings of the earth, right? Isn’t that what it says?

Look at verse 6. VS 6 “And hath made US kings and priests unto God and his Father;” OK, WE are made KINGS. So, Who is our servant? Look at it, and read it, Jesus is the servant of the kings of the earth. Isn’t that what it says? And at the same time, WE are HIS/I AM’s servants. Amen! This is the way the gospel works. He in us and us in Him. We serve Him, He serves us. Who is the great intercessor? Jesus is. Who does He intercede for? Us. Then He is serving us. Every time we do or say something that is in error, He corrects us, because He is the prince who serves the kings, and we are the kings that are served by the prince. No where are we called the prince, because He has preeminence because He is the first begotten of the dead. And that is in two realms, naturally dead and spiritually dead.

“And hath made us kings and priests UNTO GOD AND HIS FATHER.”

I thought God was the Father. God IS the Father. But Jesus is the Father. Simply because Jesus IS GOD. Folks, it is time that people wake up to the Truth of Who Jesus was/is. We are told to know Jesus no more after the flesh. That flesh man Jesus was God. (1 Tim. 3:16. God simply appeared in the form of a flesh man and laid aside His Deity. Which is EXACTLY what we did. He left that form, formally known as Jesus, when He returned to the position of I AM. And WE are following His Pattern.

Look at 1 Timothy. 1Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness; GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH..JUSTIFIED IN THE SPIRIT, SEEN OF ANGELS, PREACHED TO THE GENTILES, BELIVED ON IN THE WORLD, RECEIVED UP INTO GLORY.”

WHO was manifest in the flesh? GOD. WHO was justified in the Spirit? GOD. WHO was seen of angels? GOD. WHO preached to the Gentiles? GOD. WHO was believed on in the world? GOD. And WHO was received up into glory? GOD WAS!!! GOD manifested in a flesh body, on earth. And that body was the body of Jesus. GOD WAS JESUS! (which we will see something about ourselves, in this writing.)

I like the way the Living Bible says it. Philippians 2:5-7 “Your attitude should be the kind that was shown us by Jesus Christ, who THOUGH HE WAS GOD, did not demand and cling to his rights AS GOD, but laid aside his mighty power and glory TAKING THE DISGUISE OF A SLAVE AND BECAME LIKE MEN.”

You see, there had to be someone to die for us, to die for our awakening. Since God could not die, He took on the flesh body as the flesh man, Jesus. We have made an idol of the flesh man Jesus, and I know that is hard for a lot of people to hear. But, we are told to be established in PRESENT TRUTH. (2 Peter 1:12). In the days of Jesus, the flesh man, He was the Present Truth; but our God is an ever moving God, and THIS is the Present and there is a Present Truth for this day. This does not take away from Jesus and all that He did, but, we MUST remember WHO HE REALLY WAS…..God. Just as when God spoke through the ass, does that meant that we should still be listening to that ass? As the man Jesus, when the work that He came to do was finished, He returned to His True Identity. (John 17:5) Let’s get back to Revelation.

Revelation 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father.”

We have been made kings and priests unto God and his Father. And God and his Father ARE THE PRINCE, that serves the kings! John was having something really awesome revealed to himself. Hallelujah! This shows us that ALL are ONE IN GOD. We MUST drop our religious thinking folks. Those secrets that has been hidden since the foundation of the world is coming into view. We were promised that they would. (Mt 13:35, Rom 16:25, 1Cor 2:7, Eph 3:8-12) Either we choose to receive them or we choose to do what was done to God when He came in the form of the man, Jesus, reject it. And many will, in fact, many are. But that is okay. Their time will come for the knowing, either on this side or the other side.

VS 6 “to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

VS 7 “Behold….” What did we say this word means? It means, pay close attention, I am going to show you something that you haven’t heard before. So, let’s see what he is going to show us.

VS 7 “Behold, he cometh with clouds;” This word “with” shouldn’t be there. King James changed words that were in the original. This word “with”, should read “in” clouds. “Behold, he cometh IN clouds and every eye shall see him,

There are two things we need to look at here. One, CLOUDS, and every eye shall see him. Everywhere in the bible that clouds are spoken of, is speaking of a people, except one place. Let’s see what the bible says about these “clouds”.

2 Peter 2:15-17 “Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; but was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet. These (people) are wells without water, CLOUDS THAT ARE CARRIED WITH A TEMPEST; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.”

Jude 11-12 “Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These (people) are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear; CLOUDS THEY ARE WITHOUT WATER, CARRIED ABOUT OF WINDS;”

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing WE ARE COMPASSED ABOUT WITH SO GREAT A CLOUD OF WITNESSES,”

If you read chapter 11 of Hebrews, you will find that it is speaking of the people who have died. And it is carried right on in Hebrews 12:1. The folks that we think that we have lost, aren’t lost at all. They ARE STILL LEARNING. Is our God so incapable of making plans for ALL? Is He so incompetent that He didn’t make a way for those who did not come into truth, while here on earth? No. No He is all knowing and DID make plans for all. (Read my study on Life On Both Sides of the River. you will see those who have passed over into the invisible realm are still being ministered to. I am sure, without a doubt that Floyd Watson is standing up shouting, “you go girl”.)

So, CLOUDS are people. So, “he cometh in clouds, PEOPLE“.

VS 7, “And every eye shall see him. Now, with the world as it is, how is every eye going to see Him? Because He is coming in CLOUDS! WE ARE THE CLOUDS that He is coming forth in. Hallelujah!! He is coming in His people. Didn’t He say, “As surely as I live, ALL THE EARTH shall be filled with my glory”? His glory is being revealed in His saints. So, if the whole earth is filled with His glory, in His saints, and that glory IS being seen, that’s how every eye shall see Him. Just as when God came in the flesh as the man, Jesus, those who could see, could see Him, through Jesus. They saw the Father through Jesus. Even though they had never seen God, they saw Him through Jesus. He is the Pattern of what we will do. The world will/is see Him, God, through us. And every eye shall see Him, and that is the only way every eye will see Him. ANYPLACE where there is life, He is being seen. Not only life as WE know life, but the plants, the animals, the seas and oceans. You name it, even in outer space, HE IS BEING SEEN TODAY; because there are people who has learned to look for and see Him in ALL THINGS. Their eyesight has turned to HIS SIGHT and they are learning and practicing how to keep that FOCUS.

VS 7 and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him:”

Now, when we think of them that pierced Him, we automatically think of the soldier at the cross. But, this isn’t what that means. The Roman soldier was only one person, and this says “they” which pierced Him. “They” that pierced Him is the word. Not the Word of God, but it’s that word that blasphemes His name, by denying our True Identity, HIS IDENTITY. Those who call themselves by His name, but live otherwise and believe otherwise. Those that insist that they are human beings, instead of Spirit Beings; the SAME SPIRIT BEING THAT HE IS. They shall also see Him. The kings that Isaiah speaks of who don’t want to see Him, they too, shall see Him. Not willingly, but they too, will see Him. There is no doubt in my mind that there are people that IF God appeared to them (that God that they have in their box) and told them, “this my child, is all true”, they would say, “well God, my pastor doesn’t agree so I have to believe him”. Sad but true.

VS 7and ALL kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.”

These are not the people in “heaven”, not “heavenly or spiritually “minded people. These are earthly minded people, that shall wail because of Him. Those who say that He doesn’t exist; those who say that He wasn’t the Messiah; those that say that He wasn’t the Saviour; those who say that He didn’t resurrect; (1 Tim 3:16, 1 Tim 4:10-11) these are those who will wail because of Him. They and their words are the ones who has/is pierced Him.

VS 8 “I am Alpha and Omega;” These words were not in the original writing.

King James put these two words in, thinking that it would make it easier for us to understand. “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” Which is; right there giving John this revelation. He was in the Spirit realm giving and showing all that John would hear and see; Which was; in the eons of eternity, before Calvary; Which is to come: which is talking about HIS FULLNESS in US. (We will go much deeper into the last part, when we get to verse 13). WE being ONE IN GOD, were Alpha and are now stepping into the Omega part of His Plan.

VS 9, “I John,” Now, right here, at this time, John was conscious. He knew that he was aware of what he was saying and of what he was writing. Notice, that John DID NOT say that he was in the Spirit, at this point. He knew exactly where he was and what he was doing. His out of body experience did not begin until the next verse. “who also am your brother, and companion (or laborer), in what? in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience. Tribulation means, in a time or a state of affliction. There can be natural tribulation; and there can be tribulation within you. Patience means, the ability to bare trials, without murmuring. Murmuring means, I don’t want to change; I want to stay just like I am. When we go through something, God’s Word tells us, “that ALL things work for our best”. When we starting saying, “Why is all this happening to me?” We are murmuring. We don’t murmur when we know our True Identity, we are learning to take dominion of all things; just as we were told to do way back in Genesis 1.

I John who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus.” What did we say the word “of” means” It means “out from within” “the tribulation out from within Jesus”. He caused this tribulation!! And we should be thanking Him for it. It is overcoming tribulation that we mature; it is overcoming tribulation that we learn to use HIS strength; tribulation is where HIS character appears THROUGH US!! We look at tribulations as darkness. But, what does PS 139:12 and Mt 5:45 tell us. “LIGHT AND DARKNESS ARE THE SAME TO GOD”. Should we think any differently than God thinks? This is what has got us into the incorrect thinking we have been living in.

By seeing HIM in what this realm calls “wrong, tribulation, hell, evil” is the ONLY WAY TO HAVE AND KEEP A PURE MIND. If we see HIM in the darkness, THEN WE KNOW, that HE is causing and understanding to come to us as we walk through that darkness. Hallelujah!! So, you see, the darkness is really LIGHT. Amen.

“I John, was in the isle that is called Patmos,

This word “Patmos” in Strong’s Concordance is # 3963. It means; to banish. John was banished to the Isle of Patmos for his belief, love, and ministering of and with Jesus. “for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus.” John walked with Jesus, ministered with Jesus, and KNEW Jesus. He, John, was “beloved of Jesus”, so this should give us a clue that what is being revealed to John IS NOT JESUS!

I want you to pay close attention to verse 10.

VS 10 “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, The word “was” does not belong here. I should be “became”. It is the Greek word agenatha, which means, became. John DIDN’T say I was already in the Spirit; he said, I BECAME in the Spirit. Look at verse 9, John knew where he was, on the Isle of Patmos. But, he BECAME in the Spirit. Or other words, John left his carnal thinking and became in the invisible realm, where he begins to see things and people who are in that invisible realm. Another word for, I became in the Spirit, is entered. I entered into the realm of the Spirit. NOT I was in the Spirit. Another word that was changed by King James was the word “on”, on the Lord’s Day. It is IN the Lord’s Day. “I became in the Spirit (or Spirit realm) IN the Lord’s Day.” This is very important, because when we say ON the Lord’s Day, that tells us that this is a period of time; but, when the original says “IN the Lord’s Day”, this tells us that this is a state of mind, not a period of time. In that invisible realm, there is no time or space. John BECAME THE STATE OF BEING, IN A REALM THAT WAS AS TRUE, AS JESUS BECAME SIN FOR US!! “John BECAME in the Spirit IN the Lord’s Day.” Amen!! And the only way you can become in the Spirit, is that you must be IN the Lord’s Day. A state of being not of no time, no space, but in that realm of Spirit. If you think that you can be in the Spirit, and have one eye on the clock, you are not in the Spirit, or in the state of being in that invisible realm. IF there is no time in God, then to be in what He is, SPIRIT, there can be no time for us, in the state of being in the Spirit, BECAUSE IT IS A STATE OF MIND. Not the natural mind, but the Mind of Christ.

I want to AGAIN, explain this word “Christ”. Christ is not a person. Christ is the anointing. The anointing IS GOD. It is HIS LIFE. And we are ALL that LIFE. We are the life of God walking the earth AGAIN, in a flesh body. Just as Jesus was first called, “Jesus Christ”; He was walking under that anointing, that LIFE OF GOD; but He was later called, “Christ Jesus”; HE HAD BECOME THAT ANOINTING THAT LIFE OF GOD. Amen!! And we are following our Pattern. (1 John 4:17, Col 1:27, 1 John 2:20, John 1:16, 1 John 3:2,)

When we come into the rest of the Lord, we have entered into the Lord’s Day, a state of BEING. We aren’t TRYING to understand the Word of the Lord, the understanding just rises up within us; no longer are we murmuring against the Spirit; no, we have entered into the Lord’s Day, that state of Being of Him. “I became in the Spirit in the Lord’s Day and HEARD…” notice what had to happen before John HEARD. John HAD to become in the Spirit in the Lord’s Day BEFORE he could hear. We don’t just hear because we want to hear. God didn’t just take John to the Isle of Patmos and start talking to him. John had to BECOME in the Spirit. There was a process that had to take place BEFORE John could hear. He left Patmos (in his thinking) and became in the Spirit, to hear. It is the same with you and I. Everybody that says that they hear from the Lord are not hearing from the Lord!! Unless we are in the realm of the Spirit, or that invisible realm, we will NOT and ARE NOT hearing from the Lord. Remember, The natural man understandeth NOT the things of the Spirit.” God does not speak out side of that realm.

To show you that John had entered into the state of being of being in the invisible realm take a look at this; Rev. 22:8-9, “And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and see, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not; for I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets and of them which keep the sayings of this book; WORSHIP GOD.”

Now apparently, John thought he was seeing Jesus, because we see where he fell down at the feet to worship this being. And the Being told John CLEARLY who he was. He was a fellow servant; he was OF JOHN’S BRETHREN, the prophets; and he was one who was keeping (or protecting) the prophesy here in this Book of Revelation. So we know that this Being HAD BEEN IN THE REALM OF THE EARTH at one time. John was having an out of the body experience. He was in the invisible realm. And that is the state of being that John had become in.

Rev 1:10, “and I heard behind me a great voice”. What was that voice? “…as of a trumpet.” When we are ask, “what is the trumpet”, we will say, “it is the voice of God”, and “a clear message of God” because we are in the realm of the Spirit, and know what the trumpet is; but if you go to someone else, who is not in the realm of the Spirit, they will say, “a trumpet is a musical instrument” or they will begin to tell you about Gabriel. This is a fruit, to know where someone is at. God said that we will know them by their fruits. This is how we know if a person is in the realm of the Spirit. “Out of the heart, the mouth speaks.”

Here is what the trumpet said.

VS 11, “I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and what thou seest, write in a book...” HERE, John is about to be taken on a journey in the invisible realm. He is going to hear some things and he is going to see some things, that are THERE, not HERE in this realm. (unless you are at the place of where heaven and earth has come together). Throughout this journey that John is about to be taken on, he will TALK to people; he will hear from people. Not angels, but people. (which we will see this further on in other chapters.) “and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus; and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.” We will get into the meaning of the churches as we go along.

VS 12, “And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;”

Let me ask you a question. When John turned, what did he see? He said that he saw seven golden candlesticks, right? OK. Back up a couple of verses. He said, “I was in the Spirit and behind me I heard a voice, as a trumpet. OK. Verse 12, “and I turned to see the voice that spake with me, and being turned I saw THE VOICE. What was the VOICE? Seven golden candlesticks. It was the seven golden candlesticks that was doing the talking. This CLEARLY shows that John was in the invisible realm. Here in this realm, we don’t see candlesticks talking! But, as we go on, we will see that the seven golden candlesticks were the seven churches! In that realm that John was in, he saw the seven churches talking to him. This verse also tells and shows us that this book is made up of symbols, types and shadows and cannot be understood with the carnal mind.

And John was told, “I want you to send these letters to the angel or pastors of these seven churches.” Now listen closely. As John saw these seven candlesticks, he saw THESE SEVEN CHURCHES TALKING TO HIM. John saw all seven churches talking to him, all the ages that was before him and after him. Throughout the 7 church ages, John was allowed to witness. John was told, “listen John, I want you to send these letters to the ANGEL (singular), to the churches (plural). This meant this: “the letter that I give you in Smyrna is not just for you and Smyrna; and the letter I give you for Thyatira is not just for you and Thyatira. But, the letter that I give you in Smyrna and all the other churches, you are going to have to understand all seven letters. And all seven churches are going to have to understand all seven letters. And EVERYBODY is going to have to understand all seven letters, because that is what is bringing the balance in Christ. EACH of these churches HAS BEEN in US. We have experienced each of these churches. It is sort of like, a church in a church. Spiritually, these seven churches have been or are being worked out of us. That’s why when John turned, the candlesticks were talking.

Each one of those churches speaks of an age, throughout the church age. There are seven parts to the church age. And each age (or church), as we see “he that overcometh,” each age, the nature of that age, acts like that church. In the age of Smyrna, they act like what He says about Smyrna. In the age of Philadelphia, they act like what He says about Philadelphia. John HAD to have become into the Spirit in the Lord’s Day so that he could SEE the voices COMING OUT OF THE AGES, and this last church age that we are now in. Understand that. This wasn’t just given to John THAT PARTICULAR DAY. ALL OF THE AGE TO COME WAS SPEAKING TO JOHN!!! So, John had to be in the Spirit, and in that invisible realm, just to grasp all of this, that he was hearing. THE PAST WAS SPEAKING TO JOHN AND THE FUTURE WAS SPEAKING TO JOHN!! It was the seven golden candlesticks talking to him. Notice well, IT WAS NOT JUST JESUS SPEAKING TO JOHN, the seven churches were speaking to him, too. Amen!!

Now, in verses 13 through 18, I am going to take time to explain these five verses CAREFULLY AND CLEARLY. IF you will allow understanding to rise, within you, of these scriptures, you will see WHO IS BEING REVEALED IN THIS PROPHECY. And you will look at the rest of the entire Book of Revelation, differently.

PART TWO

REVELATION 1:13-18

One like unto…

Revelation 1:13 “And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.”

If you read in the Preface of your bible, you will see that any word written in “italics”, means that the word was added by King James, when translation was taking place. This was done with the thought in mind, that the added word would give better understanding, to the reader. There are many websites that will inform you of the thousands of errors that were made, while translation was taking place (and it is important that we all know these things, so that we can receive TRUTH, not man’s intention.)

In verse 13, the word “one”, does not belong there. It was added. It should be read as: “And in the midst of the seven candlesticks like unto the Son of man…”

When John turned and looked at the seven candlesticks what he saw was someone looking like the Son of man. He DID NOT SEE THE SON OF MAN. He saw someone who LOOKED like the Son of man. And this person that John saw was so much in the image of the Son of man that John couldn’t tell him apart, from the Son of man. Keep in mind that we are told that, “the body of Christ is a many-membered body,” which we will look at, further on down in these scriptures.

This is the verse that has been used to show that this Book of Revelation is about the revealing of Jesus. Now, this verse, along with verse one of chapter one, shows us differently. The first verse showed that by knowing the meaning of that little word “of,” changed the whole picture. It wasn’t showing the Revelation about Jesus; it showed that Jesus was doing the revealing of someone.

Together with this verse, verse 13, we are beginning to see that, indeed, SOMEONE is being seen. And this SOMEONE looked exactly like the Son of man. Not Jesus, but one that looked like Him. Please understand that when I say, “looked like,” I don’t mean facial features. All that is seen in this SOMEONE is seen through Spiritual eyes. (remember John is seeing all this in the invisible realm). Let me ask, when we read this verse about someone “looking like” the Son of man, what other scripture comes to mind?

Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; …”

This is the beginning of it all, the COMPLETED work of God (Elohim) and Revelation is the manifesting of what began and finished, in Genesis, manifesting right here on earth. Hallelujah!! We started out in the image of God, and end up right back IN GOD, where we came from. WE HAVE NOT CHANGED WHO WE WERE, ONLY OUR THINKING CHANGED, WHEN WE MANIFESTED IN THIS NATURAL REALM. WE GOT CAUGHT UP WITH THE NATURAL, INCLUDING OUR THINKING. But, I am getting ahead of myself, here.

OK, so here in verse 13 of Revelation, we see one like unto the Son of man. So, let’s go on.

So, in Genesis, we see one exactly as God. No difference was between, because actually, that one came OUT OF GOD, MADE OF THE SUBSTANCE OF GOD. To put it bluntly, that one was as much God, as God was that one. And here in Revelation, we are seeing the exact same thing, “that was shortly to come to pass”!! Here, in Revelation, Genesis is being manifested; it is manifesting on earth, not in the invisible realm. Hallelujah!! Just as “the Lamb was slain before the foundation of the world”, BUT did not manifest until 2000 years ago. The same is happening now with the manifestation of HIM, in and as us. HIS LIFE is being seen in this visible realm.

This is a good time to get some real understanding about the flesh man, Jesus. And then we will get back to the description of this one like unto the Son of man.

Religion has given the impression that there was God AND Jesus. So, let’s look at His Word and get this straight, in our thinking.

1 Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, PREACHED UNTO THE GENTILES, believed on in the world, RECEIVED UP INTO GLORY.”

Please, lay aside all previous teaching and concentrate on what is being said here. Notice, it doesn’t say that Jesus preached to the Gentiles; it says GOD PREACHED TO THE GENTILES. GOD MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH. GOD WAS RECEIVED UP IN GLORY. All of this is speaking about GOD, not Jesus. God is sovereign. One definition of the word “sovereign” is this: supreme in power and rank. Regardless of what outer garment that God chooses to put on, His Rank is and has and will always be supreme, over and in all. He is all in all. Regardless of what name He is called by; regardless of His appearance, or lack of it. God was Jesus, in the flesh body. Just as He is US, in these flesh bodies.

The Pattern that God laid, appearing on earth as Jesus, is now being manifested in us. Just as He laid aside all Deity to become the flesh man Jesus, He did the same with appearing as us. We call it, “losing memory” of our True Identity, but it is the same “laying aside all Deity”, as He manifests Himself, His Life through and AS us. IT IS HIM. Each of us is an individual EXPRESSION of Him.

Philippians 2:5-8 “Your attitude should be the kind that was in Jesus Christ, who though he was God, did not cling to his rights AS GOD, but laid aside his mighty power and glory, TAKING THE DISGUISE OF A SLAVE AND BECOMING LIKE MEN. And he humbled himself even further, going so far as actually to die a criminal’s death on a cross.”

Jude 25 “To the only wise God our Savior, be glory, and majesty, dominion and power, both NOW and EVER. Amen.

1Tim 4:10 “For therefore we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the LIVING GOD, WHO IS THE SAVIOR OF ALL MEN, especially of those that believe.”

1Tim 1:1, “Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by THE COMMANDMENT OF GOD OUR SAVIOUR, AND LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHICH IS OUR HOPE.” (NOTICE here. it doesn’t say “they” are our hope. IS, is used here. Is , is singl\ular. IF it were two, being their hope, the word “are” (plural) would be used.) You can look at this two ways; (1) God is our Savior AND He is Lord Jesus Christ, Or (2) choose to see Him as two separate Beings. I believe it is number 1.

1Tim 2:3  “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of GOD OUR SAVIOR.”

Titus 1:3  But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment OF GOD OUR SAVIOR.”

PS 106:2I  “They forgat God their savior, which had done great things in Egypt;”

IS. 43:11 I, EVEN I, AM THE LORD; AND THERE IS NO SAVIOBESIDE ME

Now, you might say, well these last two scriptures were of the Old Testament; Jesus had not came yet. Well, let’s see what the prophecy about Jesus has to say.

IS 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder, AND HIS NAME SHALL BE CALLED Wonderful, Counselor, THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, The Prince of Peace.”

Let me ask you, can there be more than ONE MIGHTY GOD? or more than ONE EVERLASTING FATHER? No, I think not. You see, just as we are Spirit, Soul and Body, so was and is God. Are we not in His Image? (Genesis 1:27) God is and was the Spirit. So are we. We are that Spirit that the New Testament tells us about. THAT Spirit IS living in a flesh body AGAIN.

God knew that we had allowed the Mind of Himself to “fall” as we entered this earthen realm. He knew that the man that He had brought forth out from within Himself, that man that was to manifest in the earthen realm and learn to take dominion of all things, including the MIND, was now of the mind, where that man HAD TO SEE SOMETHING TO BELIEVE a thing. (this is where man has been UNTIL NOW)

He knew that it would take a man, just like what we have been picturing ourselves as, a flesh man, a human man, to die on a cross and take our sins, (sin an illusion of the mind we had fallen into), in order for them to believe that we had any hope and to renew their thinking, UNTIL REMEMBRANCE returned to us. The Spirit Being that we were, HAD TO BE AWAKENED! The Soul had to become reunited with her husband, The Spirit. And this He did by the flesh of Himself, Jesus, to die on a cross for our salvation or our awakening.

This experience that we have been living, in this natural realm, is for us to learn to take DOMINION not only of all that was created, but to take DOMINION of all WITHIN OURSELVES, so that ONLY HE CAN BE SEEN. This experience is for making this earthen realm to be seen with the MIND that we had allowed slip to unconsciousness, to be renewed. Notice we are to RE-new this carnal mind that we came to depend on. We are to RE-member ourselves BACK to that ONENESS IN AND AS HIM. To RE-member that we are ELOHIM, PLURAL GOD. Not plural gods, but the ONLY God there is.

Look at the Pattern that He laid, as the flesh man, Jesus. I like the way another brother put it: by Kenneth Greatorex

QUOTE; “While the liberal elements of Christianity may tend to take away the deity of Jesus Christ, please know that this writer is anything but a liberal. The failure to properly understand the humanness of Jesus the Christ has caused much failure and grief amongst believers. Without a doubt 2000 years of stained glass church history has watered down the truth of his humanity until it barely exists in our thinking. We may get all teary eyed over the cross, and rejoice in the various miracles which we attribute to his deity, and end up with a man dying, and a god doing the miracles. Now, don’t stone me yet, as you need to read this, before deciding to do it.

In order for us to walk as he walked, we must understand HOW he functioned on earth in his human bodily form. So at this point it is good to consider what the scriptures actually say, and more importantly what the MAN, Jesus the Christ said of himself. The Gospels contain 78 references (Englishman’s Concordance) in which Jesus called himself, son of man. Many of these are duplicated in one or more of the Gospels. It is interesting to learn of the times that Jesus was called The Son of God. There are just 42 New Testament references that specifically refer to Jesus as the Son of God. Only a few of these have Jesus saying, or agreeing, that he was the Son of God.

So, just how did he function? In John 5:19, 20 we read, Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, THE SON CAN DO NOTHING OF HIMSELF, unless {it is} something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and {the Father} will show Him greater works than these, so that you will marvel.” (NAU) Please notice that Jesus was limited in what he could or couldn’t do.

Again we find a limitation of sonship in John 5:30. I CAN DO NOTHING ON MY OWN INITIATIVE. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.
The question arises, was he not the one of whom it was said in Matthew 1:23 “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (KJV) (Immanuel in other versions)

What of John the Baptist while in fetal form, jumping for joy in his mother’s womb? Or, what of Simeon saying of the infant Jesus, “For my eyes have seen Your salvation?” When seen in context these instances, and others, are prophetic or revelatory in nature.

There was the time when his parents took him to the Temple in Jerusalem for the Feast of Passover. The 12 year old Jesus came with them, and then he got so involved talking with the elders/teachers who were amazed at his understanding, that he got left behind. Once found by his parents he said to them,” Did you not know that I had to be in my Fathers house?” Were these the words of a boy-god, or of a lad untouched by sin and with purity of mind? We must be aware that every Jewish boy was expected to memorize the scriptures, and that Jesus was found to have been both listening and asking questions.

In Luke 2:52 we read, And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and stature, and favor with God and men. This was clearly a process of his development as a human. Within him was fullness in seed form and without a doubt a growing understanding of who he was prior to his earthly sojourn. However, he was to function as a human, just like us and with the limitations we face.

Within Acts 10:38 we find the key as to how he functioned in his earthly ministry. Peter said that it was; “GOD who ANOINTED Him with the HOLY SPIRIT AND WITH POWER – for God was WITH him.” We already know that his sonship, as is ours, was limited to the will of the Father. Therefore, the works that he did were those done in accordance with our Father’s will, and under the empowering anointing of the Spirit of God. Please realize that IF he had functioned as a God-man he would not have needed to be baptized by John, which baptism identified him with fallen man, or he would not have needed to be anointed with the Holy Spirit. Our Father had purpose in the limitation of his son for our benefit.

At the time of his baptism by John, the Holy Spirit descended upon him. Matthew, Mark and Luke each record this event. In Mathews account, which is considered as being written to the Jews, the voice said, This is My beloved son. However, Mark and Luke record our Father saying to Jesus, YOU are My beloved son. Clearly there was an unfolding revelation coming to Jesus of his placing and purpose on earth.

Lest we get caught up into the heavenlies we must again be reminded that Jesus had to function on an Adam/human level. In 1 Timothy 2:5 we read, “For there is one God, {and} one mediator also between God and men, {the} MAN Christ Jesus”, Please notice that it does not say, THE GOD Christ Jesus, but rather, the MAN Christ Jesus. It was the man who died, and the man of flesh who was raised. God did not need to be raised as God did not die.

There are two critical points that must be considered, his becoming sin, and his becoming a curse for us. In 2 Corinthians 5:21 the shocking statement is made. Jesus, who never knew sin, as the First Adam had, became sin. How he who was the Lord of Glory could become SIN, not a sin offering as I would prefer to say, is difficult to comprehend. Likewise, is the fact that he became a curse. Galatians 3:13 clearly says; Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a CURSE for us – for it is written, Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.

Clearly as deity in any form, he could not relate to us. Therefore it was necessary for a self-emptying which is called the kenosis. How far did this go? Just as far was necessary to in order to relate on our level, and to fulfill his destiny as the Savior of all. Was it to the level Adam was prior to the fall? Or, was it as Adam was after the fall, and yet without being born in sin?

Within the realms of eternity he existed in the form of God, as part of the Deity family. The decision was made not to continue functioning as deity, and therefore he set aside, emptied himself of deity, and willingly took the form, or position equal to that of a slave. This is an interesting point as man was the slave or sin, and Jesus took the position of a doulos, a bond, or love slave. Within the human dimension he grew physically, ate, slept and was severely tested, or tempted if you prefer to sin, and lest we forget, life began as in infant sucking milk from his mother’s breast.

Driven by the Spirit into the wilderness after hearing the Father’s voice of approval must have been especially hard for him. It was in the wilderness that the devil tempted/tested/tried Jesus. He was tested to do something FOR himself – make stones into bread; WITH himself to jump from the pinnacle of the temple with the presumption that angels could save him; and OF himself in order to gain the kingdoms of this world the seemingly easy way. Each challenge was met with a scriptural answer. We are reminded that the temptation period lasted 40 days, with only 3 specific examples being given. How many other temptations there may have been during this time we don’t know as scripture is silent.

The question arises, Could the man Jesus have failed? That is, could he have sinned? Our religious bones shudder at such a question, and we immediately say, NO NO NO, Away with such heresy, don’t question my beliefs; you know that he was the son of God. Now, we need to be very honest and answer the question. IF in all the testings, or temptations he could not fail, then was the whole thing a fraud? IF so, then we are in big trouble as there is no way that he can relate to us. We must look at additional scripture.” UNQUOTE. (let me say here, that I am not saying that Kenneth Greatorex is in agreement with my teaching. But this is an excellent article on the humanness of God, in the form of the flesh man, Jesus.) Let’s continue.

And on top of all this, let us read 1 Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, PREACHED UNTO THE GENTILES, believed on in the world, RECEIVED UP INTO GLORY.”

Now, we see that it WAS GOD WHO MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH. IT WAS GOD WHO PREACHED. We saw that GOD IS OUR SAVIOUR. We saw this in scripture. We also saw (above) how Jesus was in the flesh. HE DID NOTHING, it was GOD IN HIM that provided the power. Just as He does with us. I am not taking anything away from Jesus. I just am not looking at the flesh man, who was Present Truth in that day, I am seeing Him as HE IS NOW; (2 Peter 1:12) in the PRESENT. When God manifested in the flesh, as the man, Jesus, HE LAID ASIDE HIS DEITY. So, Jesus was not part God, part man, anymore than we are. I feel that God HAD to lay aside all deity, in order to be like a flesh man. As a Pattern for us to follow. I look at it, for my understanding, as when God became Jesus, He lost all memory of Who He had been. JUST AS WE HAVE DONE. But, the truth is, our/Him living in this flesh, DOES NOT CHANGE the truth of our True Identity; WHO WE STARTED OUT AS AND WILL/ARE manifesting in this earthen realm. NOTHING CAN CHANGE THAT TRUTH. The only thing that changed was OUR THINKING as we partook of a natural, physical realm.

 

The Truth is, we ARE STILL THE IMAGE OF GOD that came forth out of Him, in Genesis. THAT HAS NOT CHANGED. TRUTH CANNOT BE CHANGED; it may be remembered incorrectly, but it doesn’t change. Just as Jesus walked the earth for 30+ years, not knowing He was God. WE HAVE DONE THE SAME THING. We have forgotten our True Identity. But remember, if you take a cup of ocean water and bring it to Ohio, IT IS STILL OCEAN WATER, regardless of what you put it in or what you put in it. And just as Jesus “saw” Himself in the scriptures, so are we.

More and more the Spirit is rising in Truth within us. Just as when Jesus was baptised and heard the Voice of God, WE ARE HEARING HIS WORDS COMING FROM WITHIN US TELLING US WHO WE ARE. We are even told in scripture that we are the Sons of God. And some of us are recognizing this, just as Jesus recognized it. BUT, THERE IS MORE TO IT THAN JUST BEING SONS!! IF we agree that Jesus is our Pattern to follow, then we need to see the Pattern to the end. JESUS NEVER TAUGHT SONSHIP, HE TAUGHT THE FATHERHOOD. We are to follow the Pattern.

1Timothy 1:16 “Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, FOR A PATTERN TO THEM WHICH SHOULD HEREAFTER BELIEVE ON HIM TO LIFE EVERLASTING.”

OK, we see that Jesus is our Pattern to follow. We saw that GOD manifested, as the flesh man, Jesus, and laid aside all deity and became as man. There was a need for a man to die WITH US ON THE CROSS, so that we could awaken to our True Identity. The reason for the need of a flesh body for God to manifest within, is simple; GOD CANNOT DIE. The flesh body that He manifested within, could.

Jesus kept telling us, I and Father ARE ONE. Jesus thought it not robbery to be equal with God. And it isn’t. But, there is a process of this knowing to become manifested. We cannot just claim it and presto, there it is. IT IS A PROCESS OF BEIIEVING INTO IT.

The last part of the Pattern, we will follow into, too. This is Jesus speaking: John 17:5 And now O Father, glorify thou me WITH THINE OWN SELF with the glory which I HAD with (in) thee before the world was.” GOD RETURNED to WHO HE WAS before He manifested as the flesh man Jesus. Let’s get back to Revelation.

Revelation 1:14 “His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;”

In this verse there are three words that were added, that should not be here. “his”, “were” and “were”. You can see this by the writing pattern, that it is written in. This verse is beginning to describe this someone who is being revealed, ONE LIKE unto the son of man. US! And remember, we cannot take these words of the Book, as we would define them in the natural. Each word is symbolic wording, of what John is seeing in that invisible realm. And we must remember that John is speaking in language that was understood in his cultural surrounding and time. They did not speak as we do today. Can you imagine the understanding that John would have if someone from our time and culture, said, “The feast is ON ME, today!” I am sure John would be looking to see if food was all over us. (this isn’t funny, but I am sure you get the gist of what I am saying). In John’s day, the speaking and the understanding of things was greatly different from today. Plus, the understanding of the Spirit is not in our natural understanding or worded as this carnal man would speak. So we NEED to BECOME in the Spirit, that we are.

This one’s head and his hairs speak of the mind and the covering of the mind. The mind is the Mind of Christ, and the hairs or covering is the Spirit. White speaks of purity. Wool is strength, yet softness. Snow speaks of the purest of pure. His eyes or his focus is as a flame of fire. What is God? Our God is a burning fire. Each of us, or the many membered one that John saw, is a flame or expression of Who we are One in, God.

Revelation 1:15 “And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.”

Feet represent our walk. This one “like unto” the son of man, has walked through the furnace. His walk was as brass. Brass represents judgment. And judgment IS NOT what we have been taught it is. Judgment is simply, correcting what is incorrect. And the burning out of us, of what religion has put in us, is revealing our True Identity. And notice, this one like unto the son of man is the voice of a manymembered body. One body, but made up of many.

Revelation 1:16 “And he had in his right hand seven stars; and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenace was as the sun shineth in his strength. “

The right hand speaks of blessing. The stars speak of us that are speaking, in this church age, HIS PRESENT TRUTH. (see verse 1:20) Angels are messengers; messengers carrying forth HIS TRUTH. Seven is the number of perfection or completeness. These messengers are speaking HIS COMPLETED, PERFECT TRUTH. The twoedged sword is the clear truth that cuts to the marrow of the carnal mind. The sun is the LIGHT that we have received, and it produces or brings in to manifestation His strength in the truths that are revealed and has become our/His life.

Revelation 1:17-18 “And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, I am the first and the last. I am he that liveth, and was dead; and behold I AM alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell (hades, a place of the dead) and of death. “

We are the first, just as Elohim is. And we are the last, the EXACT SAME THING THAT CAME FORTH OUT FROM WITHIN HIM. And remember, THIS IS NOT JESUS SPEAKING. IT IS ONE LIKE UNTO HIM, that is speaking these words. We were alive IN HIM before we manifested in this realm. We have been dead, since the manifestation; and NOW that we are remembering our True Identity, I AM alive for evermore. What did God tell us His name was? I AM!

The keys, is HIS KNOWLEDGE. We have remembered our True Identity; we have remembered that we have His fullness, NOW. (John 1:16) These are KEYS. And I AM is alive forevermore. We seem to have forgotten what HE TOLD US that His name is and how long that would be His name.

EX 3:14-15 “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM; and he said, Thus shall thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob hath sent me unto you; this is my name FOREVER, and this is my memorial UNTO ALL GENERATIONS.”

What did God say His name was? I AM. And how long would that be His name? FOREVER, and UNTO ALL GENERATIONS. Even this one like unto the son of man, NOW uses His True Name, I AM. Amen and Amen.

In Revelation 1:19-20, John is instructed what to do and in verse 20 the symbolism is explained.

I call forth understanding in all that read this. And I truly ask you to take your bible, right along with this sharing and study it out, to be approved. And see for yourself that the revealing, here in this book, IS NOT THE REVEALING OF JESUS. It is the REVEALING OF ONE LIKE UNTO HIM. One, manymembered body that the entire veil has been removed from their faces.

In the following parts, we will see how this manifestation came into being.

PART THREE

AUGUST 27, 2007

Before we go on with this sharing, I want to look at this “one like unto the son of man”, a little more. This is important to us. It is the revealing of the manifestation of God, in, through and as us. It is the remembering of our True Identity. This is the seventh day that we are in and the third day and this is the Day of the Lord, when He IS rising up and being seen in the earthen realm.

God’s plan is about HIM, not us. His plan is and was to be in this visible realm, and to be seen EVERYWHERE we look. ANYPLACE where there is LIFE, we see Him. It IS NOT HIM and us, it is HIM. Him, that we are One in. Not One with. The word “with” implies more than one person. More than one is duality. His name in Genesis, Elohim, means “PLURAL GOD”. Not Gods, but God. Just as the church has accepted that the Body of Christ is a manymembered Body, God is plural and all the plurality is HIM.

We were brought forth out from within Him; we are of the exact substance that He is; we are Him Image. He cannot change and neither can we, being Who we are. The only thing that changed was our thinking, about ourselves, when we manifested into this nature, physical realm. We changed our focus from the Truth; from His way of thinking; and from His way of seeing; and we have been in an illusional thinking reality, ever since. That image that was produced by the illusional thinking, has made us forget the True Reality of Who we are. But, we are returning, just as the prodigal son returned to his father. Just as, when we enter into the Spiritual mind, we know that we are in His Presence, but, not only IN His Presence, but it is then that we cannot tell where His Presence begins and this natural presence ends. That is because WE ARE ONE IN HIM.

Now, let’s look at this “one like unto the son of man”. We know that the flesh man, Jesus, was the son of man. So, the words alone, “like unto”, tells us something. If you remember, in the Tabernacle of Moses, there were parts of the Tabernacle that was made of wood, overlaid with gold. Wood, speaks of humanity. Gold speaks of God. As this physical, flesh body is covered with our True Identity, the body changes from flesh, as we know it, to a body that corruption cannot touch; death cannot touch. It actually needs NOTHING to sustain it, because its source is its Creator.

Now, this “one like unto the son of man” that John saw, in the midst of the seven candlesticks, tells us a lot. Now, just relax; forget all of our religious thinking; and just meditate on these words. What does seven mean? It means perfection, completeness, wholeness. (Rev. 5:6) What does a candle do? It gives light. So what this is telling us IN OUR LANGUAGE (not John’s way of speaking, not English, not Hebrew, not Greek, but in SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE! God does not speak those languages HE SPEAKS SPIRIT!) This is telling us that PERFECT KNOWLEDGE, PERFECT KNOWING, PERFECT TRUTH OF GOD is surrounding what John is seeing.

What darkness John must have felt on that Island. Banished, alone, away from all his loved ones. But, out of that darkness, John sees the brightest Light anyone could see. Out of the darkness of his situation, comes Light. This is exactly what has been happening to us. Don’t you sometimes feel as though you have been banished from all that you have known? And what does John see in this PERFECT KNOWLEDGE? “one like unto the son of man.” I am sure that John thought, “oh this is all worth all that I have been through”, just as we are learning that all that we go through is indeed worth the remembering of our True Identity.

Now, “this one like unto the son of man, was clothed with a garment down to the foot”. This is speaking of his life. All that was seen of him was the exact same thing that God is. The foot represents this one’s walk. And notice, the foot is SINGLE, not plural. He isn’t walking with one foot in the air and one foot on the earth, he is walking the life of the One that he is One in, God.  He has brought heaven and earth together.  This garment that he had on was girted about the paps with a golden girdle. The paps speak of the breast area, the place of the heart, the place of nourishment and substance. What this one had on was the clothing of the priests. Now, look at an earlier verse:

Rev. 1:6 and hath made us kings and priests unto God…”

This word “unto” can also mean “into”. This one, not only walked IN the midst of the light, He was the Light, and this my friends are us, coming into remembrance of Who we are. Let me say something here. I think some people feel that we are trying to take God’s place. We are and will always be subject to God. Yes, Elohim means, PLURAL GOD, and we are part of that plurality, but HE is the MOST HIGH GOD. At this point in time, we don’t understand just how far into being Him we will go. But, we do know FOR SURE, IF WE BELIEVE, “that IN HIM, we move, live and IN HIM WE HAVE OUR BEING”. The church has tried to make this sound as though it is some kind of relationship, where we are down here, He is up there, and it is just a “thinking” that we abide in Him, in some mystical way. We are learning differently. Can you believe that He lives in you? Then, why can’t we believe that we ARE IN HIM? We cannot be IN HIM and not be exactly what He is.

He told us that He is “I AM”, and He even gave us the thought of when we think of ourselves, who do we call ourselves? “I”. His name, like all the names given in the bible, means “NATURE”. “I” IS HIS NATURE and that is what we are. Only the carnal thinking cannot see this because it is folly to the carnal mind. We cannot even speak of ourself, without speaking of Him; I am happy; I am glad; I am love; I am I am.

As He walked this earth as the man Jesus, He was a SIMPLE MAN. He spoke simply. RELIGION has changed His simplicity into hard to understand words that really hold no meaning to us, because we couldn’t understand the deep meaning of His simple words. If He says something, IT IS TRUE, whether we understand or not. We cannot change HIS TRUTH. We need to change our thinking when we see something that He says. We need to think “I may not understand it, but IF He says that I am PURE, then I have to see myself as PURE, regardless of what my natural eyes tell me, no matter what my pastor tells me, when my pastor says that no man is worthy, I just have to say, well that contradicts what God says. We LEARN to understand when we desert EVERYTHING and EVERYONE, and just focus on Him. Then we turn around and say to ourselves, “oh my gosh, I understand what He is and has been saying, why didn’t I see this Truth before?” It is because we have been listening to everyone EXCEPT HIM.

“his hairs and his head were WHITE…” PURITY! This one had come to the place that ALL HE WAS USING WAS THE MIND OF GOD. When the Book of Revelation speaks of “the mark of the beast”, we see that that mark is to be in the hand or the forehead of a people. All that means is simply, the carnal nature is in their mind and ministry. The hand speaks of ministry and all a ministry is, is speaking, living and sharing HIM!! Oh, for all to come out of religion, what a joy it will be!!! We are ALL a ministry; it is just that some minister out of Him and some are still ministering out of the carnal. And the carnal has different levels, just as being in Him has.

Folks, the bible tells us that we are to go through tribulation. And that tribulation is the listening to the carnal mind. When we think with the Mind of God, we know, deep, deep within us, that we have no needs, we have no illness, and in fact that we HAVE ALL THAT WE NEED, HIS FULLNESS!! (John 1:16). As we realize this, we see these things that the carnal mind tells us, fall away. And there MUST come a falling away BEFORE the finished work of God is manifested. We cannot hold on to the carnal way of thinking because of what the natural eyes see, and hold on to the Mind of God. Our eyes start seeing differently when we focus on HIS THINKING. The mind is a powerful thing. Both the carnal mind and the Mind of God.

Doesn’t the bible tell us, “As a man thinketh, so is he? This work “thinketh” needs to be understood. Any word with “eth” on the end, means CONTINUALLY. Continually thinking turns into belief, regardless of which mind you are using to do that thinking. Our mind CREATES, believe it or not. No, it is not just saying, “I am speaking in a million dollars, for me. That is definitely the carnal mind at work. You see, the Mind of God thinks of OTHERS, not itself.

“In his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword; and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.”

In his ministry, his life, were perfect teachings, truths. No mixture. And the twoedged sword, speaks of his words. He speaks NOTHING that disagrees with God’s Truth.

And we need to understand this “sun shineth in his strength”. The “sun” IS NOT SPEAKING OF THE SON, the way people have taught this. The “sun” speaks of LIGHT!! The son had no light or strength OF HIS OWN. IT WAS ONLY WHAT THE FATHER SAID OR THE STRENGTH THAT THE FATHER PROVIDED TO THE SON. And if you search this out, for yourself, you will find that Jesus NEVER TAUGHT SONSHIP. And He NEVER TAUGHT THE DOCTRINE OF THE BRIDE!! To speak of the son, Jesus would have been teaching HIMSELF, and He did not do that. He taught the FATHER.

Jesus taught: John 17:23, I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect IN ONE; …” There is ONLY ONE, and that IS GOD.

We DID NOT COME OUT OF GOD AS A SON, WE CAME OUT OF HIM, AS HE IS!

We need to understand the God of Genesis one and the Lord God of Genesis two. The God of Genesis one, is the creator. It is He Who brought forth out from within Himself, the Lord God of Genesis two. Meditate on this. We know that in God, there was and is NO EVIL. Anything that He brought forth, He brought forth from within Himself. Evil did not even exist during all of His creating. Then, look at Isaiah 45. In the first verse, notice WHO is doing the speaking. It is the Lord, and in verse 7, He says: Isaiah 45:7, “I form the light, and create darkness, I make peace; and create evil: I the Lord did all these things.”

Isaiah 54:16, Behold,” (what does BEHOLD mean? It means I am going to show you something that you didn’t know up until now”. “I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for HIS work; and I created the waster to destroy.”

Now, notice in Genesis one it was GOD who created man. But, in chapter two of Genesis, it was THE LORD GOD who did the FORMING. The Lord God is the PLURAL GOD that came out of Elohim. Plural God. And until the Lord God (us) got involved with the tree of knowledge of good and evil, there WAS NO EVIL. THERE WAS NOT A THOUGHT SEPARATE FROM THE THOUGHTS OF ELOHIM. THE SPIRIT AND THE SOUL (the man and the woman) WERE IN UNITY, UNTIL the woman was separated from the man. The woman represents the soul, that became carnal. We are the Lord God, who is still subject to God, the Most High God. God could not and did not create evil, those who came forth in His image and got caught up in the natural, physical world, US, did the creating and are still doing it, in this illusional thinking that we are something other than what He is. (I will be doing a sharing on this subject when I finish with the Book of Revelation). Why would God (Elohim) want to destroy? He was and is a Creator, not a destroyer. But, now the Lord God is awakening from the deep sleep that was put upon Him (Gen 2: 21), and notice the Lord God CAUSED this deep sleep to come. That deep sleep is illusional thinking. (You could call it a nightmare.) And we see no where in the bible where the man awakened from that deep sleep.

But, we see that the “one like unto the son of man” came forth, here in Revelation, and He is coming forth right now, right here on earth. Heaven and earth are coming together; we are awakening from this dream state of being something that we are not and realizing WHO AND WHAT WE ARE. His image is being seen in the earth. This is the seventh day from Adam and the third day from Jesus. He is rising up and being seen. Seven is perfection of the man that came forth out from within God (after he partook of the knowledge of good and evil) and three is witness to the manifestation on the earth. WE are the first and the last; we were alive and we lived like the dead, but now, LIFE IS SHOWING IN US, HIS LIFE! Hallelujah!!

Our true PRAISE is showing. True praise IS OUR LIFE not the songs we sing, not the dancing that we do. That praise is of the earthen realm, but TRUE PRAISE IS NOW BEING SEEN.

In Part 4, I am going to start on the churches. I will not be spending a lot of time on them, and you will see why, when I send it out. But, then we are going to get into the understanding of HOW this “one like unto the son of man” did overcome and awaken to Who and What He is.

PART FOUR

AUGUST 28, 2007

We are going to take a look at the seven churches. These churches can be taught in different ways. They can be taught as literal churches; they can be taught as Spiritual churches; but the understanding that I have received is that ALL of the churches has been within me. Actually, within us all. We have experienced the things that the messenger is telling the churches, or us.

Colossians 1:19-24 “For it pleased the Father that in him should all the fullness dwell; And having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile ALL things unto himself; by him, I say whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies IN YOUR MIND by wicked works, yet NOW hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight; If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to EVERY creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister; Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake WHICH IS THE CHURCH.”

WE are the church. God couldn’t care less about these buildings that man calls church. We are the church and just as the church system, of today, has so much crap in them, we have had it in us too. But, by being and remaining open to the Spirit, most is out of us now. And His TRUE CHURCH is in view. The church system of today, has HUMANS in it (or so they think), but this Church, US, know that we are NOT HUMAN, we are Spirit. That SAME SPIRIT THAT GOD IS. How can we say this? Simple, there is ONLY ONE SPIRIT. ONE GOD, (Eph.4:4-6), WHO IS ALL IN ALL.

In this, His True Church, the gospel that is being heard, IS NOT the gospel that man has written and rewritten and rewritten to the point that we don’t know what is inspired or not inspired. The words of the bible have been changed so many times that the understanding of it is MAN’S UNDERSTANDING. Let me show you an example of this.

2 Timothy 3:16  “All scripture is given by inspiration of God…”

I have explained this before, but I want to state it again. When the bible was translated by the scholars of King James, (who, some of them weren’t even saved) they added words to the bible, supposedly to help us have better understanding. But, adding one word can change the whole meaning of a scripture. Here in 2 Timothy, this very thing happened. The third word of this scripture, “IS” was added. And this little word makes a world of difference in the meaning. It should be read as “All scripture, given by inspiration of God is…” This DOES NOT say that all scripture IS inspired of God. Even Paul warned us in his writing, that there were people who would steal his writing and change what he said. Then they were carried from church to church. We are also told that the letter is dead UNTIL the Spirit gives understanding. But, this scripture tells me that ALL scripture IS NOT inspired of God. When Jesus told Paul to teach HIS gospel and no other gospel, in some of Paul’s writings Paul tells us, “THIS IS OF PAUL”! That means, that what was written was PAUL’S THOUGHTS, no inspired of God. And it is still going on today. Look at all the denominations. THE SPIRIT let’s us know what is and is not inspired of God.

Anyway, “all scripture given by inspiration” shows me that not ALL scripture IS given by inspiration”. Each of you will have to judge for yourself. Isn’t the Spirit NOW INSPIRING you to see things in a scripture that you didn’t see before? Also, look at this warning:

2 Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

The Rapture; Armageddon; the Anti-Christ; the mark of the Beast, all of these are fables, taught by man, NOT THE SPIRIT. How many people stepped into that invisible realm believing these? But, thank God, they are learning NOW!! Man has made the bible to be like some sort of trap. And many have been caught in that trap. But, there is a people who is hearing SPIRIT and seeing the simple truth of God. I AM thanking I AM!!

I want to look at some ways these churches are taught, and you decide what you will. As I said, the seven (perfected, completed) stars of the church are anyone bringing forth the PURE, UNPOLLUTED WORDS OF GOD, by the Spirit. (Malachi 2:7)

Malachi 2:7 “For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth; for HE IS THE MESSENGER OF THE LORD OF HOSTS.”

Galatians 4:12-14 “Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are; ye have not injured me at all. Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first. And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me AS AN ANGEL OF GOD, EVEN AS CHRIST JESUS.”

These verses have SO MUCH DEPTH in them. But, what we are looking at is the “stars” of the church. We are told in Malachi that he was the MESSENGER of the Lord of Hosts; and in Galatians that Paul was received as AN ANGEL OF GOD, EVEN CHRIST JESUS. We have to understand that the way they talked and worded things in the time of John, is not the way we speak or even for that matter, the way the Spirit talks. So these stars and angels of the seven churches were people speaking in the Spirit. Call them as YOU understand; preachers, teachers, priests, whatever you choose to call them, but know that whoever it is doing the speaking in the Spirit, they are stars that are shining forth with PURE TRUTH. But, another way you can look at this, which is the way I see it, is that since I AM THE CHRUCH, IT IS THE SPIRIT SPEAKING IN THIS CHURCH, when Truth and Revelation comes forth.

I am going to list the things that were in these churches that had to be overcome, and still do in many “churches” =people.

Things to over come in the churches, US:

1) Church of Ephesus; left their first love. Who and what was their first love? God. And the KNOWING that they were His Image. They lost the remembrance from whence they fell. (does this strike a cord?) We all did this. To repent simply means to turn and walk the other way. This is what some of us are doing. We are starting to walk in our True Identity and we are doing the work that we did, as Him and Him as us, from the start And as long as we walk as something other than Him, our candlestick (Light, Understanding is removed.) One thing that was liked about this church is that they hated what God hated, CONTROLLING OF PEOPLE!! This is what the Nicolatanes were. They were controllers of the people. We see the same thing in many church buildings today. IF we don’t do what they do; IF we don’t believe what they believe: IF we don’t give them our money; and IF we dare to think that God will talk to us, as HE SUPPOSEDLY does to them, what happens? We are looked upon as heretics; backsliders, cults, you name it. You that have been called out of the church system knows what I mean. But, even today in the Kingdom churches and groups, IF we dare to say that God has shown us something that they haven’t received, what are we? Quacks; people that “Jesus would be ashamed of if He were here”; false teachers, again, you name it, that’s what we are called. BUT BY RETURNING TO OUR FIRST LOVE , it keeps of from caring what we are called. So, in this church the overcoming is simply return to our first love. Listen to Him. Be Him. Let HIS LIFE be seen through us. Who cares what we are called? We know something that they don’t; the names we are called is WORTH BEING WHO WE ARE and we know that all will come to know also, as they open their Spirit.

2) Church of Smyrna; suffer name calling by the “more religious” folks. This is a good example of NOT believing what the bible tells us. We are that the devil was destroyed by Jesus, on the cross. (Heb 2:14-15). But some choose to believe that the devil is alive and well (which really is the carnal mind) and they use the devil for an excuse, rather than take dominion of the tribulations. Ten is the number of Divine Order of a thing. To me, the second death would be AFTER being alive in Him, then coming into this natural realm, you are walking in death, and when your body dies (the second death) you wait in the invisible realm (still learning) until you are called back into a new body. To me, this church shows that we MUST believe His Word, in order to overcome. Just as we are overcoming this natural realm by learning the Truth of ourselves. We have all been in the place where we would say, “I know God is right, BUT>>>>>”. NOW, that is ending.

3) Church of Pergamos; DOCTRINES. Exactly what we have lived on for 2000 years. We all know the doctrines that we have come out of. And the believing of those doctrines is from NOT spending time with HIM, in the Spirit. There are things that we have believed and now look back on and think, “how did I ever believe that?” Much of this is because we thought the Pastor knew everything and we knew nothing. But once we cried out to Him and spent time in the Spirit, we have learned Truth. Again, the Nicolatians is mentioned. The religious system is all about control and God wants NO CONTROL of Himself, which we are.

4) Church of Thyatira; Again it’s about beliefs and allowing someone to lead you, instead of the Spirit leading you. There are times in our steps of a babe, to chase after prophets to let them tell us how and what we should do. Many have had that in their lives, I know that I did. But, once you draw close to Him and find that you have His fullness, you come to realize that you are a prophet yourself. You have the entire five fold ministry within you and you within it. When it is said that power over the nations will be given, can mean the “nations” that have been within us, not just the physical nations of the world. And He will give the morning star. This is the pure nature of Christ.

5) Church in Sardis; This is having the “name”, nature, that is alive, but it is dieing. It is almost like a warning. Don’t let die what I have showed you. Some are allowing the Truths that they have received, slip away for different reasons. In order to overcome is to hold solidly to what we receive. We can allow NOTHING or NO ONE to try to have us let go.

6) Church in Philiphia; This is beautiful. Those very ones who call the names; blaspheme what has been received from the Spirit; those want you to turn loose of what you have received and they have not, THEY will come to worship what you have received WHEN they DO open up and allow the Spirit to show them. Once we receive the truth of our True Identity, we cannot let any man take our crown. His name has been written in us, and the city of God, New Jerusalem is also our name. PEACE. We must not allow this to be taken from us.

7) Church of Laodiceians; the TV is full of this church. Rich. Material goods. Pastors living the rich life while there are people going hungry, but it is all going to change as we take dominion. But, it is not just the natural, it is the Spiritual Richness that some pastors won’t share because it would cause some of their people to leave the church, and that means a loss of $$$.

We see that all of the “churches” had good things; but the things that matter most is the knowing of Him. The depending on Him. Listening to Him. Being Who we are.

Now, we will start through the book and see how this “one like unto the son of man” manifested.

PART FIVE

AUGUST 30, 2007

We will be looking at Chapter 4 of the Book, today. I want to say, that, UNDERSTANDING THIS CHAPTER IS VITAL, to the knowing of our True Identity. As I said in the beginning of this sharing, this book has been incorrectly taught, by many, for years. But, understanding is rising in a people. Just as Chapter 1 and verse 1 showed us, this book IS NOT REVEALING the man, Jesus. It is revealing our True Identity, and a people who are entering that Identity, TODAY.

It is Jesus (God, Elohim) revealing this to John. I believe that John recognized Jesus, and his True Identity, far more than any of the other disciples did. The Book of John holds more Present Truth, than most of the other books do. John, who went through more, “trying to be killed”, than any of the disciples did. Yet, he survived, to be banished to the Isle of Patmos. Do you think that was a coincident? I don’t. I think it was for the very purpose that is being shown to us today. He was deserted to a most lonely place, alone (in the natural way of seeing this), and yet, it is John who is seeing this revealing. And as the Example, that He was, Jesus always spoke in parables, and explained the parables to those who had the desire to know more. Because the more they heard, the more they saw Truth.

AGAIN, I want to make it clear, THIS IS NOT ABOUT US, IT IS ABOUT WHO AND WHAT WE REALLY ARE. Just as God was seen as the Being that dwelled in the flesh body that we learned about, the man Jesus; He is now being seen in a many membered body. He is revealing HIMSELF, LITERALLY, IN THE FLESH AGAIN. Christ (HIS LIFE flowing in the flesh) is being realized by a people. His is not revealing Linda, turning into someone other than Linda, He is revealing Who we have ALWAYS BEEN AND WILL ALWAYS BE. Regardless of who says what; regardless of the names Linda is called; regardless of the blinders that folks will not permit to be removed; NOTHING can change His Truth of Himself, which is us, His many membered self.

As you will see, in this fifth part of sharing, eyes will be opened even more, IF they are open to what the Spirit is showing us in this fourth chapter of Revelation. This chapter is SO REVEALING. IF people would go into this with the desire to know truth, rather than to try to prove someone wrong, they would be amazed of what has been in this book, all these years. But finally, there is a people who has stopped following and depending on MAN, and has turned their focus, STRICTLY to Him.

So, let’s begin.

Revelation 4:1-2, “After this (after seeing ALL the churches throughout the ages, and what had to be overcome) I looked, and BEHOLD (remember what the word “behold” means? It means that you are going to be shown something that you did not know before) a door was opened in heaven; (the word “was” does not belong here, it was added in the translating) a door opened in heaven; (Who is the Door? Jesus (God). Since He is Spirit, the Door that opened was Spirit understanding) and the first voice which I heard, (again, “was” was added) as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the Spirit: (**the word trumpet represents a clear sounding Word from God).

God has always worked in 3’s. (3 rooms in Tabernacle of Moses; 3 part being, Spirit, soul and body; in creating, think, speak, bring into being; Father, Son, Holy Spirit; salvation, Pentecost, Kingdom; and many other examples) and the words “come up hither” is used three times in this Book of prophesy. (Rev. 4:1, Rev.11:12, Rev.17:1) AND because we KNOW that He IS THE EXAMPLE, look at what we are told to do in Rev.22.

Rev. 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. AND LET HIM THAT HEARETH SAY COME. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely:

Can you see that EXACTLY what the Spirit is saying and doing, IS WHAT HE IS SAYING WE WILL/ARE DOING? Or SHOULD BE DOING! “Him that heareth” is saying to others, exactly what the Spirit said to “him that heareth”. And notice, “And the Spirit and the bride SAY,” notice this IS NOT PAST TENSE, NOR IS IT FUTURE, IT IS PRESENT TENSE. We ARE to be SPEAKING as the Spirit IS SPEAKING. Why? Because in Genesis 1, we are told that we ARE WHO AND WHAT HE IS, SPIRIT. WE ARE the exact SAME SPIRIT that HE IS!! ONLY WE CAN BRING FORTH THIS MANIFESTATION OF OUR TRUE SELF. We are told in John 1:16, “OF HIS FULLNES have we all RECEIVED.” Are we filled with His Fullness to do nothing? I think not. RELIGION!! We MUST rid ourselves of the religious thinking, so that FULLNESS can rise within us.

And so, once John, “come up hither”, once he focused on ONLY the Mind of God thinking, he was immediately in the Spirit, or the “heaven”. And he started “seeing” things. Folks understand this, “seeing” means UNDERSTANDING. We don’t have to wait until we have a mystical vision appear. I am not saying that people have not experienced a vision; but, I am saying that a vision USUALLY is an understanding in the mind. (either His mind or the carnal mind). And many “visions” are of the carnal. Just like the girl who had a “vision” of the Rapture taking place. She saw it carnally. Is there a rapture? Sure is; John is experiencing it, but, NEVER left the Isle of Patmos. Do you see how the carnal mind becomes “religious”? To “come up hither” is a state of BEING, not going someplace. “To come up hither”, does not require us to be at a certain place; or to be with a certain group; or to be alone. Look to the Example; Jesus was “Up hither” regardless of where He was or who He was with. And IF entering that Spiritual realm, we THINK that we can do it better with certain people, we NEED to go back and rethink our growth. THE ONLY THING WE NEED, IS WHO WE ARE! Whether alone or with a thousand people. So John started UNDERSTANDING that he had to “come up hither” or to put his focus WHOLLY on what He was going to hear and “see”.

Rev. 4:2  And immediately I was in the Spirit; And BEHOLD (here we go again. Not only us, but John also, was going to experience something that he and us had not known before.) a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on that throne.”

THRONE, speaks of AUTHORITY. There is only ONE AUTHORITY. ELOHIM!! And where was this authority? “in heaven.” In heaven, simply means, in the Spirit. Heaven is a state of being; just as hell is a state of being. And we experience whichever one we allow our mind to stay on.

An example of this is: when someone passes over, are we happy for that one or are we MORE concerned with OUR missing them? I learned this when my little Mama passed over. I was hurting and crying and “the thought” came to me; why are you crying? And I thought because I need her here. How I will miss her. It didn’t occur to me that she had received a BLESSING!! Yes, I KNEW she would go on learning. Yes, I knew she would not have to deal with that HORRIBLE disease that filled her. And yes, I knew that there was no TIME where she was. She didn’t have to study for eight hours and then say “oh, I have to stop for now, and fix me something to eat; or to take a bath”. No, and I know that this sounds cold; BUT I WAS THINKING OF ME! I was not happy for her to be gone because I NEEDED HER; I NEEDED THAT WONDERFUL LOVE THAT A MOTHER GIVES!! What was I gong to do? But, understanding came to me. She really went no where. She was around me (Heb. 12:1) and WHEN I became sensitive to the Spirit, that we both are, I could help her learn. Hallelujah!! So, when my focus went to the sadness of MY NEED I was in hell; but, when I focused on the understanding that I had received, I was in heaven or in Spiritual understanding. It is our flesh that does the missing. Because spiritually, WE ARE ALL ONE. JUST AS WE ARE ONE IN HIM< ALL ARE IN HIM!! Whether they realize it or not, yet. What we focus on, is the state of being we are in.

Am I saying that we shouldn’t miss loved ones? If we could only come to realize, that MY MOTHER was not my mother. He is my Mother, My Father, My sister, My brother, MY ALL. I AM IN HIM< ONE IN HIM, AND SO IS ALL, and the carnal mind cannot tell me that I am missing something that is ONE IN ME , because WE ARE ALL HIM!! How can He or We SEPARATE OURSELVES FROM OURSELVES? Oh my friends, this carnal mind is very clever. But, I AM THANKING I AM, that it is losing its power over me. (actually that power has never been, it is my BELIEVING that that power was in me, that was just manifesting, but I AM awakening.) Because all that we are experiencing HERE, is of that mind; ILLUSIONAL THINKING. But, when we rise above that illusional thinking, we begin to see ALL HERE, AS HE SEES IT. And let’s face it folks, we HAVE to THINK as HE THINKS, for His manifestation to FULLY BE SEEN IN AND AS US.

This is why I say, it is all a process. Some disagree, but that is ok, I receive what I receive and they receive what they receive; and THE PLAN will fulfill itself.

And ONE sat on that throne.”

Now, what does Elohim, mean? It means PLURAL GOD. Whose image are we? Elohim. We are coming into the realizing that where WE are, He is. Where HE is, We are. Keep this in mind.

His glory is being symbolized by the stones and the rainbow, His promise to us.

But, here is chapter four, the veil is taken from John and he entered into the realm of heaven (Spirit). John is seeing the entire rulership and authority of the total redeemed body, in which Elohim dwells. What John is seeing is this “one like unto the son of man” who has manifested the Fullness of their Being, Elohim, God. John is seeing this “ascended” and dimension of the eternal glory of God. THE authority is beginning to be seen by John.

Now, I want what is so thrilling, in the describing of the one on the throne; the twenty-four seats; the twenty-four elders; and the four beasts to be looked at.

Rev. 4:3-5 “And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats; and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment: and they had on their heads crowns of gold. And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there are seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.”

These stones were in the breastplate that the priests wore; and each of them had a meaning. Each of the 12 tribes had their own stone. The breastplate speaks of part of what we are clothed with. The stones are all revealing God’s glory. I won’t through all the meanings of each stone; but in the Old Testament, each of the 12 tribes had a stone that represented them. We will see more about the stones when we come to The Gate, later in the book. But, remember this, as you think of stones:

1 Peter 2:4-5  “To who coming, as unto a living stone, DISALLOWED INDEED OF MEN, but chosen of God, and precious. YE ALSO, AS LIVELY STONES are built up as spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone… “

Can you see in these verses that Jesus was the Stone, and WE are also stones? And MAN cannot be these stones; what we ARE, Spirit Beings, made in the image of I AM, awakened from this strong delusion we have been living.

Eph. 2:18-22 “For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto (INTO) the Father. NOW therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of (out from within) the household of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple IN the Lord: In whom ye ALSO ARE builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”

Seats speak of a place of rest.

Rev. 4:4 “… and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders SITTING, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.”

The four and twenty elders represent the ruling forces of the mind; they have controlled all of us. And all of these forces MUST bow down and submit to God. These are all that rule the carnal man. And just as they control the carnal, the elders rule the Spiritual. It is the Mind of God and His attributes.

The four and twenty elders speak of rulers or controllers of our complete lifestyle. Attributes of who we focus on, the delusional, carnal thinking or the truth of our Identity. In all things in this life, we consult with the “elders” of our thinking. Where is our focus? What is our focus on? Our elders decide this. What or which elders is speaking to us? Think about it. The choice is ours, for we HAVE HIS FULLNESS.

I am tying to make this as UNRELIGIOUS as I can. We need to rid our mind of all that RELIGIOUS thinking of 24 people sitting on seats around a huge throne in the “heaven”, with some white haired man sitting on it. Just waiting to judge us. Can anyone judge Elohim? (plural God).

As our mind is renewed, or our thinking changed from this carnal, illusional thinking, to the Mind of God, transformation or the manifesting of Him, is seen. Literally on the earth, in the invisible realm. ONLY HIM is seen when we are looked upon; ONLY HE is heard speaking from our voice. HE MANIFEST HIS LIFE IN AND AS US.

White speaks of purity. Crowns speak of authority. Heads speak of the mind. This mind of purity and authority, is God’s Mind. The elders speak of what or Who rules this life.

Rev. 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne which are the seven spirits of God”.

The seven lamps explain themselves, here.

The voices takes us back to Rev 1:13. That one like unto the son of man, with the voices of MANY WATERS”, which is the many membered body which is awakened to their Identity. This “one like unto” has come into the knowing of their/His Identity. Here we are being explained all that they came into knowing.

Now, we will see that, that ONE sitting on this throne is a many membered ONE. US IN HIM. AS HIM and HIM AS US. Now remember what we read in the Seven Churches:

Rev 3:21 “and to him that overcometh I WILL GRANT TO SIT WITH (IN) IN MY FATHER’S THRONE!!”

SOOOO, “the one like unto,” this manymembered body, because this one has come into the realization of their True Identity SITS IN HIS THRONE! Hallelujah! Oh how I pray you are seeing this with Spiritual understanding. They/this one like unto, overcame the thrones that ruled their lives. The thrones are what rules our lives.

Prov. 4:23 “Out of the heart comes the issues of life.”

Out of the thrones of our heart comes rulership, either carnal or Spiritual. Our heart is His throne. In HIS FINISHED WORK, He has already overthrown any power that ruled from our throne (heart), now WE manifest that Finished Work.

In the next part, we will even MORE of the showing of this “one like unto.” It is glorious and can only fill you with joy, both earthly joy and heavenly (Spiritual) joy!

PART SIX

SEPTEMBER 3, 2007

ALL THAT IS DESCRIBED HERE IN THESE VERSES ARE IN US. AND THAT INCLUDES THE IDENTITY!!

Folks, we cannot be separated from Him ANYMORE! (Actually we never have been, only our thinking has been.) We ARE WHO AND WHAT HE IS; HE IS WHO AND WHAT WE ARE!

So, let’s take up where we left off in Chapter 4 of the Book of Revelation.

Who is this ONE? It is US in our True Identity. We ARE Him; He IS us. To see ourselves any differently or separate from Him, Elohim is a STRONG DILLUSION! And we have been BELIEVING THAT STRONG DILLUSION, UP UNTIL NOW! We ARE SEEING (understanding) that, “AS HE IS IN THIS WORLD (PRESENT ARRANGEMENT), SO ARE WE.” Notice the words, “IS and ARE”. What words are these? PRESENT TENSE. Not off in the future; not back in the past; PRESENT! Not after we die and go to heaven. This IS PRESENT TRUTH!!

DEATH was never in His Plan for us. He has NOTHING to do with death. It is not Him that decides when a person passes over. It is lack of knowledge in that person that brings forth death. Notice what it says in Hebrews:

Hebrews 2:14-15  “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he (God) also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death (on the cross) he might DESTROY HIM THAT HAD THE POWER OF DEATH, THAT IS THE DEVIL”

It was the devil (the carnal mind) that had and STILL DOES HAVE the power to bring forth death on a person. Death is not a part of God and should not be a part of us, because we are ONE IN HIM.

We left off in Revelation 4:5. So that is where we will start.

Rev. 4:5 “And out of the throne proceeded (past tense, which means this is already fulfilled) lightnings and thunderings and voices: ant there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.”

First of all, we need to keep in mind, the TENSE of the words that we are reading. In chapter 1:13, John SAW “one like unto the son of man, SAW is PAST TENSE, which tells us it HAS ALREADY HAPPENED. It happened in JOHH’S DAY!! It is available to US right now. And this particular verse IS FINISHED IN GOD’S WORK, and now there IS a people who are fulfilling it in this earthen realm. A people who are coming into the realization of their True Identity.

Here in verse five, we see: proceeded lightnings (plural) and thunderings (plural) and voices. (plural). What are we? We ARE a manymembered body. ONE BODY, but made up of many. The voices that are heard here, is RIVERS (plural) of LIVING WATER. In the scriptures, the word WATER refers to the Word. Are we not told that we are LIVING EPISTLES? What’s in a book, WORDS! We are LIVING WORD (singular) in a many membered body, HIS BODY. The lightnings speak of revelations, truth, understanding, as Bright as His glory (presence) is bright. The thunderings are HIS VOICE.

Remember when the children of Israel said, “we don’t want to hear his thundering voice, place a king over us and let the king hear God’s voice and then come and tell us what He said”. Thunder is a clear, loud sound. So is the voice of I AM. It gets our attention. Please do not see this with the natural mind. Symbols are used so that each one of us, can allow the Spirit to bring forth understanding in the way that each of understand. Notice, these lightnings and thunderings and voices COME OUT FROM WITHIN THE THRONE! MANY VOICES COMING OUR FROM WITHIN THE ONE THRONE WITH ONE SITTING ON IT!! Doesn’t this sort of let you know that, which ONE is made up of MANY? The ONE is that ONE that John saw in chapter 1:13. People who have manifested FULLY in HIM and are so much alike that you can’t tell them apart.

Folks, this is not revealing Jesus, this is revealing those come into and LIVE their True Identity. John KNEW GOD; the people of the Old Testament KNEW God; some in the New Testament WALKED with Jesus; and those that didn’t walk with Him, KNEW OF HIM. This IS NOT revealing someone who has already been known. It is revealing the True Identity. Revealing means UNCOVERING!! That false covering that we have had over us for thousands of years is being UN-covered. The descriptions that we are reading here, IS NOT about JESUS, it is about Us. We ARE FULFILLING Romans 8.

Romans 8:29-30 For whom he did foreknow (He has ALWAYS known us), he also did (past tense) predestinate to be conformed (past tense) to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among MANY brethren. MOREOVER, (or wait, there is MUCH MORE) whom he DID predestinate, them he also CALLED; and whom he called, them he also JUSTIFIED; and whom he JUSTIFIED, them he ALSO GLORIFIED.”

You see ALL these words underlined? Look at the tense; what tense ARE they? They are PAST TENSE. All this is ALREADY FINISHED!! Now WE have to manifest them in this realm. They are already true. So what does this tell us? WE HAVE TO BELIEVE and BRING FORTH!! It is time that we realize that when we were taught that WE can do nothing, and that we have to WAIT on the Lord, that simply IS NOT TRUE. Read Genesis and John:

Genesis 2:2  And on the seventh day GOD ENDED HIS WORK, which he had made; and he RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY FROM ALL HIS WORK WHICH HE HAD MADE.”

This is REPEATED TWO TIMES in the same verse; don’t you think that He is telling us something?!! The number two is: witness; union; and agreement. And look at John.

John 17:4 “I have glorified thee on the earth: I have FINISHED the work which thou gavest me to do.”

Beloved, we HAVE GOT to drop all of the religious stuff that we have had in us. What did He give us His Fullness for, if WE were not to use it to manifest all the finished work, in the Spirit? Jesus is the Pattern. What did He say? He KNEW that the work was finished in the Spirit realm, because He was God, and THEN what did HE do? He became a flesh and blood man and FINISHED IT IN THE EARTH!! What is a Pattern for; TO FOLLOW AND DO LIKEWISE! I hope that you allow this Spiritual Truth that is within you, to rise up and see it. IF NOT, we will see death and wait in that invisible realm, UNTIL we learn the Truth.

I hope that you are SEEING YOURSELF in these descriptions, here in Revelation 4. It is NOT talking about the man, Jesus. It is talking about a body of people that come to KNOW THEMSELVES, AS AND IN HIM< ONE IN HIM. Don’t allow the carnal mind to make you feel that you are robbing Jesus of something; you’re not. This WAS HIS PURPOSE; to show us how to return to Who we are, JUST AS HE DID. (John 17:5 notice it was with GOD’S OWN SELF that He returned to).

Revelation 4:6-11 “And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. And when those beasts give glory and honor and thanks to him that sat on the throne, which liveth for ever and ever. The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever and cast their crowns before the throne, crying, Thou art worthy, O Lord to receive glory and honor and power; for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”

WHOA! These five verses are SO FULL OF TRUTH FOR US!! I will tell you right now, prepare yourself to see ALL of this, AS YOURSELF IN YOUR TRUE IDENTITY! Just rest for a bit. Allow the Christ Mind to come forth and just sit in His Presence. Let the Spirit, which is what you are, just completely take your focus.

I am going to have to go into something that I did not want to, until after this Revelation series, for clear understanding. And that is, the understanding of God, and the Lord God. I will do this, just a little farther along. In these verses, you see that ALL of these things being spoken of is around THE THRONE, right? Now, take a minute. WHAT is the throne? God’s authority. And IF we have received ALL of His Fullness (John 1:16) WHERE is the throne? It is in us; that’s WHERE HE IS. Now, if everything that is mentioned here is around the throne, on the throne, where are all these things that are being spoken of? IN US.

There was a sea of glass like unto crystal:” Sea represents PEOPLE. ( ) Water represents the Word, Sea represents people. What did we learn the word “OF” means? It means, “out from within”. Glass represents, “reflection” or “image”. Like unto CRYSTAL. Again, here is that “like unto”. Crystal represents, CLEAR, UNPOLLUTED, CARRIES A SOUND, So, what this is really saying is this: there was seen, a people out from within the Image of God; they heard clearly; they have been emptied of religion and error of believing and they are speaking a TRUTH!!! Hallelujah!! This is US, us that are coming into our True Identity. When I say, coming into, I should say that that True Identity is coming forth from US. ONLY ONE is being seen and that is I AM. Oh glory, folks. Don’t you just want to scream at the top of your lungs and let that THUNDER be heard? Now take notice, the words that were added, WHICH CHANGED THE TENSE OF WHAT IS BEING SAID: VS 6= “there was” and “were four beasts”. VS 7= “was like a flying eagle”. You get the idea, right. You can look for the words that were added by the interpreters.

Ok. “in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne;” This takes in, about all places, wouldn’t you say? (remember where the throne is, IN US), “were (added). So it should read; “and round about the throne, four beasts” See how the tense of a word can change the meaning of a sentence? “WERE” makes it seem like “not anymore, but at one time there WERE”. King James translators added the words that are written in italics, all the way through the bible.

Beasts full of eyes before and behind. Eyes speak of seeing, or rather UNDERSTANDING, SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING, because where is John seeing all this? In the Spirit. These beasts UNDERSTOOD the beginning to the completion. This is the UNDSTANDING that WE are awakening to RIGHT NOW!

In the next part, we will finish up with the four beasts and the rest of chapter four.

PART SEVEN

SEPTEMBER 4, 2007

We are looking at the four beasts, here in Chapter 4 of the Book of Revelation. Are you seeing anything in this series that you haven’t noticed before? If you are, you have opened your Being, Spirit, and are allowing Him to bring forth all of this that is already within you. Isn’t Elohim breathtaking? I want to say something about the word “beasts’. The natural mind dreams up all sorts of pictures of beasts walking around looking like a lion, or eagle or a calf. And that mind always puts these pictures in a body of a man. Past teachings have made us think that understanding His Truth is such a laboring thing. But, when we focus on Who we truly are, that mind is cleared of all the “dust of the earth” and we see clearly. We ARE a “sea of people, understanding perfectly, with no pollution. The great thing is that, as we receive the understanding and allow NO ONE to take our focus off of the truths we are shown, we begin to manifest it in our life. It is like being sound asleep, in that DEEP sleep; and someone comes in and shakes our shoulder softly, to wake us up. And at first, we don’t want to wake up. We are dreaming and we want to see how the dream ends. But they shake us a little bit more and we begin to open our eyes, leaving the dream and facing the reality. This is happening right now, with us. Isn’t it wonderful??

I looked up this word, “beasts”, in Strong’s Concordance. The two numbers for the definition is #2226 and #2198. #2198 is where the definition in #2226 came from. #2198 means: to live (literally or figuratively); life (time); (a) live; live (ly); quick. So, some call these “beasts”, LIVING ONES and I think I like that description better than, beasts. Doesn’t these definitions sort of do away with the picture of a literal beast with different faces? These descriptions that we will be looking at is describing that one that John saw in Chapter 1:13. In Chapter 1:13, the COMPLETED MANIFESTATION was being seen by John. All that we are going through now, is showing us what all is and was inside that “one like unto the son of man”. And WHO is that one in chapter 1:13? It is us. Manifesting Elohim, in every way. Within us are all that we will be seeing. Some of what we will see, has already been removed from the delusional thinking that we have been living in. Some have not passed out from it yet, and some are yet to enter into their journey through it. But, we DO KNOW that HIS PLAN cannot be stopped. Amen.

Actually these different “appearances” of these beasts, or rather LIVING ONES, I see as attitudes that came from KNOWING their nature. The nature of each face show forth the True Identity; and remember these four, are within us. Now, when we read the descriptions, we automatically think of Jesus. But, why not? He is the Pattern. But, if we search we can see ourselves, our Real selves also.

Revelation 4:7 “And the first living one (beast) was like a lion…” The word “was” was added. “the first living one like a lion”. What is the first thing that comes to mind, in the natural realm, when you think of the lion? KING of the jungle. Jesus was seen by Matthew as the King. Matthew was a tax collector was very much in the knowing of the rich people, the poor people and the middle class people. He met all levels of people. As a business man, dealing with the public, do businessmen not recognize the wealthy and the power, and level of acceptance that they have in the world? I believe that Matthew recognized the KINGSHIP of Jesus. The authority that showed forth through Him. In the natural, there is an air about most wealthy, powerful people. The same was true with Jesus; EXCEPT His power; His authority; His air that came forth from Him WAS ALL GOD!!! His air was not snobbish; self centeredness; or arrogance. It was the air of a King that loved His countrymen. It was an air that led all to God. He was FIERCE about His Father’s Truths. Remember when He told people, you will search those written scriptures, but you won’t come to me; meaning take the time to spend in the Spirit, for Truth. He was ferocious about His “Father’s treasures”. Remember when He tore the temple up when the priests were acting as money lenders? He was protective over His own. Have you seen a mother lion, when she is teaching her cubs, survival? She can pretty testy with them, when need be. Yet, at the same time, she teaches them how to handle themselves in the wilderness. A LION represents Kingship. So how does this description fit you and me? Rev. 1:6, “He hath made US KINGS…” WE ARE ALSO OF A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD!!! AND don’t forget, in whose image we ARE created in!! So yes, this could and does describe Jesus, but who is this coming forth through, here in the Book of Revelation? “ONE LIKE UNTO THE SON OF MAN”. The many membered One. US. Jesus said, “all power (authority) is given to me in heaven and earth.” (Mt.28:18) And what is OUR TRUTH? “Of His FULLNESS have we all RECEIVED” Be FIERCE in what you have received and of what you have been shown by the Spirit. Let NO MAN OR WOMAN limit you by saying, “you are a mere mortal, you can do nothing”. Stand FIERCELY in what you KNOW, regardless of what the religious men say about you. WE HAVE THE NATURE OF THE LION!!!!

Revelation 4:7 and the second living one (beast) like a calf. I don’t remember seeing what Mark was by trade. But, Mark sees, as Ezekiel saw; a calf or ox. He saw Jesus as a servant. When I think of a servant, the first word that comes to my mind is : HUMBLE. A servant is not arrogant; pushy; or self centered. He KNOWS his job is to serve others and usually a real servant, bends over backwards to please the master. Someone might tell the servant something, but the only commands he listens to is his master. AND he does ONLY what his master tells him to do. Are we servants, when called to be? What is our focus? “Be not hearers of the Word, be doers of the Word”. This does not mean, “stay busy with church activities”. It means do ONLY what you hear the Master tell you to do, regardless of what others tell you. “SERVE the Lord thy God with all your Spirit, soul and body”. Allow, “God to direct your footsteps”. This is the heart of a servant. And servants we are.

Revelation 4:7 “and the third living one (beast) had the face as a man.” The only thing I am going to say about this beast is; this definitely describes the man Jesus. But have you looked in the mirror lately? Jesus did not look like Who He really was. Neither do we UNLESS we look at each other through the eyes of Who we are One in. Others might not know Who they are, BUT WE KNOW WHO THEY ARE and we should treat them as Who they are, not what they look like.

Revelation 4:7 “and the fourth beast like a flying eagle. The eagle represents so much. It is the bird that flys highest, in the heavens. It is thought of as one that brings the truth from the heavens, to the earth. It has such keen eyesight, (understanding). The eagle represents God. Haven’t you ever soared into the heavenlies and when you shared what you saw there to a friend, did not you both soar high above the natural thinking. You experienced the eagle.

I want you to think about something. When we are come against by those who say whatever they will say, think this: He was LORD OF LORDS. And KING OF KINGS. This means that there is more than one Lord, and more than one King; although ALL the Lords and ALL the Kings are united in ONE. He was called “the light of the world” and HE told us that we are the light of the world”. He was known as the Lamb of God. As we shall see a little further in this series, SO ARE WE. He was called the Word. We are called living epistles. We are told that we ARE in His image. And that as He is, so are we in this world. Just as the four beasts or living ones were in ONE; UNITED; and IN AGREEMENT, so are we. We have just been described here in chapter four! Oh yes, we have followed the Pattern to the tee. And we are ready for the MANIFESTING to be seen in a many membered body, “like unto the son of man”. And now we are stepping into Fatherhood, because we are awakening to our True Identity.

Revelation 4:8-11 speak so the joy within us, because we are what is within us. The wings speak of flying. We go as the Spirit that we are. WE go as Him, and Him as us. No hesitation. We speak what we hear from the Spirit without regard to anyone or anything, but that Spirit that we are. Within us, and I know for a fact that some of us feel, not the natural feeling, but we feel within us, the twentyfour elders praising and worshiping Who and What I AM. And NOW we understand that ALL were/ARE for HIS good pleasure. Because as He is so are we. He is pleased when He looks at Himself, and we should be too. Take the religion out of all of it my friends and we see clearly as we look in the glass.

PART EIGHT

SEPTEMBER 5, 2007

The God of Genesis One and the Lord God of Genesis 2

I want to share with you, the understanding that I have received, regarding God (of Genesis 1) and the Lord God that is first spoken of, in Genesis 2.

I am going to show, in scripture, what I can. Aside from scripture, the rest of what I will be writing is MY understanding. I ask that YOU read the scripture and then allow the Spirit to raise up from within you, the understanding that HE will make truth, to be YOUR understanding. It may be what He has shown me, and it may not be. But, let HIM bring forth HIS thoughts that will be with you forever.

John 5:39-41 “Ye search the scriptures; for in them ye THINK ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that you might have life. I receive NOT honour from men.”

People call the bible, “The Word of God”. Listen, this book IS NOT THE WORD OF GOD; it is SCRIPTURE, translated by man, in man’s understanding and in man’s words. The WORD of God was JESUS! Jesus DID NOT call the scrolls, (bible) the Word of God, He called them, scriptures. So, we can see from this alone, indeed, the LETTER IS DEAD until the Spirit gives understanding and life.

2 Corinthians 3:6  “Who also hath made us able ministers of the New Testament; not of the letter, but of the Spirit; for the letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life.”

Hasn’t the Spirit moved you into more truth, as He saw fit? We can study the bible and take words back to the language that they were translated from, but, that is man’s language; whether it be Greek, Hebrew, or English. He spoke to me one time when so many arguments were going on between the translators of today. He said, “I don’t speak Greek; and I don’t speak Hebrew or even English; I SPEAK SPIRIT, so forget the translators and ASK ME!” I thought it was excellent advice.

Now, we know that we DO have the mind of Christ. (1 Cor. 2:16) But, we also know that we do not YET, use the Mind of Christ, all the time. (This is the PROCESS of the manifestation that we are now journeying in.) And I want to say something to you ministers that are emailing me, and everyone on YOUR list, saying that I am not speaking from the Spirit, in what I send out. This will be the last you will hear from me, on this subject. I am not defending myself, simply because what do I have to defend myself, to man, for? You say that I am not accepting the Present Truth of who we are. You are very much mistaken. And apparently, you not reading everything that I write, or you would see that this is EXACTLY what I share with the Body. I AM accepting the Truth of Who I AM. I DO KNOW that HIS work is completed and finished. (Genesis 2:2, John 17:4). I do know that I AM ALL THAT HE SAYS THAT I AM. BUT, from what Romans tell me.

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: BUT be TRANSFORMED (CHANGED FROM WHAT YOU THINK YOU ARE INTO WHAT I SAY YOU ARE) BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND THAT YE MAY PROVE WHAT IS THAT GOOD, AND ACCEPTABLE, AND PERFECT, WILL OF GOD.”

Now MAYBE, I am reading this differently than you; but my understanding is that just CLAIMING Who I AM is not going to bring it into manifestation. I could be wrong. And IF you who are telling me that I am not speaking from the Spirit, I truly don’t believe that YOUR PROCESSING IS COMPLETED YET. Because NO ONE can judge what the Spirit is saying to someone else, just because that one doesn’t hold the same understanding as you. Again, I could be wrong. But IF you have completely and fully received the manifestation, then that manifestation is certainly different from I have thought Him and HIS CHARACTER TO BE.

So I have a suggestion. Ask to be removed from my email list; OR delete what I send. I certainly do not want you to be hearing what you consider to be carnal sharing. That way, we can both keep loving each other. Because when you say that I am not teaching from the Spirit, maybe you are not aware that the words that John speaks, in the Book of Revelation, IS NOT THE LANGUAGE THAT JESUS WAS SPEAKING. Those symbols were what JOHN SAW and put into words that he used, in his cultural speech. So, I just wanted to share this with you and you do as you see fit. And I love you.

So, let us get on with what I want to share with you regarding my understanding of God and the Lord God.

OK. Let us look at God of Genesis chapter one. First of all, in scripture, He is called ELOHIM. Elohim means PLURAL GOD. It does not mean, more than one God. It means Plurality of HIMSELF. We were and are ALL IN HIM. It matters not, if we understand this, or believe this, it does not change truth. When Elohim said, “Let US make man in OUR image…” (Genesis 1:26)

The US and OUR, is US, WHO WERE IN HIM, EVEN AT THAT TIME.

People forget that Elohim HAD A PLAN. IF He had wanted to, He could have put Himself in the earth, which He did, in the body of Jesus. But, He would have been ONE by Himself. In that realm, where He created man; (and let me say this; the word “begot” is also used in the definition of the word, “created”) in that realm of Spirit (heaven) all we knew WAS HIM; HIS WAYS; HIS THOUGHTS; we considered ourselves as ONE IN HIM. We did not see any difference at all. We did not see us AND Him. All we saw was Him.

Part of Elohim’s plan was to have a manymembered body of reflections of Himself, living in a VISIBLE realm. His plan and His work, His creating, was worked to a T. He created this visible realm in PERFECTION. ALL that He created, He created in perfection. All that was created perfect, remained perfect UNTIL the Lord God started creating. (which we will get to).

We must understand that all that Elohim, of Chapter one, created, He created out from within Himself. We KNOW that IN HIM WAS NO EVIL; NO HATERED; NO CARNALITY. He is and was LOVE. He was and is just and fair. Most of all, we know that He created IN HIS OWN IMAGE. HE KNEW how and when and where HIS PLAN would come into manifestation. Now, look at Genesis 2.

Genesis 2:1-3 Thus the heavens and the earth were FINISHED and ALL THE HOST OF THEM.”

Here in verse one is the TRUTH of everything, I have just said. HE FINISHED creating the earth, the heavens, and all the host of these two states of being. I say, “states of being” because at that time, it was ALL SPIRIT. And if you look back to Chapter one, you will see that everything that He created, HE WAS PLEASED with it ALL. Where it doesn’t say, “it was good”, we see that what He created, the way He wanted that creation, it says “and it was so.” So, there is no doubt that ALL that He created, He was pleased with, and we KNOW that it was ALL FOR HIS GOOD PLEASURE.

Understand, that along with all of mankind that was One IN Him, so was the man Jesus. Because Jesus, the flesh Jesus was ACTUALLY God, (1Tim. 3:16, read this and pay close attention to the WORDS and see if you read this, really read it before. It shows us one mystery of Elohim.) or Elohim, in a different FORM that Eloheim was. Because Elohim was a Spirit Being (John 4:24, 2Cor. 3:17, Eph. 4:4-6). So He was right there WITH US in/as Elohim. (As we go along, be sure to read the verses.

Take them in the Spirit and get YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING) Let me say here, I CANNOT WORK OUT YOUR SALVATION AND YOU CANNOT WORK OUT MINE! (Phil 2:12) By “work out”, I mean, MANIFEST your own salvation.

So, we see by the genealogy of Jesus, in Luke 3:38, that it ends up saying, that Adam was the son of God. We know that Jesus was the first Adam and the last Adam. And notice here in Luke, that “the son of God” WAS ADDED! WE DID NOT COME FORTH AS THE SON OF GOD!! WE CAME FORTH IN ELOHIM’S IMAGE. HE WAS NOT A SON. Do you see how “added words create a false truth to us?

Now, for knowing more about the IMAGE of God read about HIM, not the Lord God, but God. And see it in YOURSELF. We cannot nearly describe Him. We will always be discovering new words that will help us see Him as He is. So, I am going to leave this part of this sharing, and go on to, the Lord God.

I am going to try to share my understanding with you, as best I can. This can be confusing, if we are focusing on/with the Mind of Christ. But, I will try.

Now, as I said before, there is no evil in Elohim. In order to create evil, there has to be evil in the one doing the creating. He does not see Light AND darkness, because they are both the same to Him. (PS 139:12, MT 5:45). (This is another study). Read this scripture for a minute or two, and then read:

If you read verse one, here in Isaiah, you will see who is doing the speaking. It is the Lord.

IS. 45:7, “I form the light and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I THE LORD DO ALL THESE THINGS.”

Now, we see in verse one AND in this verse that He makes sure we see WHO did this creating. And do you know why He “forms” the light? Because Elohim of Genesis one, had already created it, or brought it forth. (Gen. 1:2-3).

Also, we see that Elohim of Genesis chapter one did the creating, and the Lord God of Genesis 2, did the forming. (Gen. 1:27, Gen.2:7)

Now, Elohim tells us in Ex. 3:14-15, that His name is I AM. What name did He give to us, the plural Elohim? I. So, I see this as “I, Elohim the Lord God... do all these things”, NOT ELOHIM of Gen. chapter one. To make this a little easier to understand, I am going to call (in this sharing) the God of Genesis one, the Most High God, and the Eloheim of Genesis two, the Lord God. OK? Just to make it easier to see. OK, let’s go on.

IS. 54:16, “Behold, (what does “Behold” mean? It means that you are going to see something you had not seen before.) I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.”

Is the destroyer in the Most High? No. Is the waster in the Most High? No. Why? Because He sees all things as He created it. He does not see like we have been seeing, because He sees His plan as finished. He sees all, as He created, in His Image. It is us, the Elohim, the Lord God, that see our selves not in that image.

So, this creating HAD TO COME OUT OF (out from within) another. What we must understand is that EVERYONE came out of the Most High. The Most High CANNOT be anything except What and Who He is. It was us, the Elohim that came out of the Most High that came to this earthen realm. And as we were here, we started NOT thinking with HIS MIND. We became entrapped with this natural realm. We LOST OUR MEMORY or Who we are.

Read 1 Tim. 3:16 again. Read it over and over until you see that it was the Most High God that took on the form, the human body, as the man, Jesus. Listen, we have kept Him in a box all these years. AND not only Him, but ourselves. We have limited ourselves, even though He tells us, in John 1:16 Of His (the Most High God) we have ALL received.” WE received His Fullness while we were in Him and when He brought us forth. I don’t mean for this to sound like we were separate Beings from Him, we were not. We have NEVER BEEN SEPARATED FROM HIM, just our thinking changed about our True Being.

If you read Phil. 2:5-6, you will see that when the Most High manifested in this earthen realm, as the flesh man Jesus, He did exactly the same thing that we have done.

Phil. 2:5-6  “Your attitude should be the kind that was SHOWN US by Jesus Christ, WHO THOUGH HE WAS GOD (the Most High) , did not demand AND CLING TO HIS RIGHTS AS GOD, but laid aside his mighty power and glory, taking the disguise of a slave and becoming like men.”

First of all, I see that the Most High did this to SHOW US what has happened to us. And when it says that the Most High DID NOT CLING TO HIS RIGHTS, to me, like US when we manifested in this realm, He FORGOT, or LOST MEMORY of being the Most High, so that He would be completely as one of us to show us that WE CAN RETURN or rather receive BACK our memory of Who we are. I see all this as a part of the Most High’s Plan. We HAD to come face to face with all that we are now facing, to take and learn to use the dominion and all that is in us. And as we come to understand that we too, are Elohim, we start bringing forth that FINISHED WORK of the Most High, here in the earth and it is ONLY Him that is seen.

And He does NOT come through us as sons, at least not at the end of the process, He comes forth as the IMAGE that He is, in us.

So, back in Genesis, we see that the Elohim, us, formed our body, our flesh body, and entered the Garden, as who we have been told was one man, Adam. But even them, He, us, was a manymembered body.

And I might say, here; when we formed our flesh body, it was a perfect body, with no disease or sickness. But as we became more aware of all this natural world holds, we lost our memory and all that comes with this earthen realm, took hold in our minds and everything changed. But, GOOD NEWS, there are those of us who are regaining our memory.

Since we are in His image, the Most High, we too are creators. We have created all the mess of this world, just as it was the Lord that created evil. When we see what the Lord God did, we are seeing ourselves. But, once the Most High manifested and that body that He took on, died on the cross, we died with Him. And upon resurrecting, our Mind of Christ was regenerated and has been coming forth ever since, just as He planned it.

I hope that my understanding has helped in some way for you to take this to the Spirit and receive understanding that is yours. And might I add, what you receive, share with us. Our experiencing understanding IS NOT always the same as others, which I wish all would understand this, so what you are shown may help others to receive understanding. After all, we ARE THAT SAME SPIRIT that He is.

In our next part, we will go ahead with the Book of Revelation.

PART NINE

SEPTEMBER 9, 2007

Revelation 5:1-14  “And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals, and I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou was slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth forever and ever.”

I will not go over all the descriptions of this one who was worthy to open the book. We must remember that, this is about that one in Rev. 1:13 “one like unto the son of man. And this one, has manifested the image of Whom he came out of. Remember, this book is not about Jesus. It is about a manymembered body that God has completely manifested in and through. So alike, that they cannot be told apart. (read back to refresh your memory).

But here and forward in the Book of Revelation, we are starting to get into HOW that one became “like unto the son of man.”

In the next part we are going to get into the vials; the seals; the trumpets: and their meanings. But, I want to look at a couple of things, here in chapter 5.

The first thing we see and should give a HUGH CLUE is: “no MAN WAS ABLE TO OPEN THE BOOK…” As we know and have all been through, as long as we have our dependence in MAN to teach us the things of God; and we are too lazy or unwilling, to spend the time that is needed to be spent in seeking Truth, within ourselves, all we will receive is second hand knowledge. NOT REVELATION, but second hand knowledge.

Of itself, knowledge can do nothing. It can change nothing. It takes revelation from within the Spirit to bring forth changing thinking. Keep chasing men and you will get knowledge, but, not revelation. And many are still doing this. They go from teacher to teacher trying to learn, but all that brings is confusion. GO DIRECTLY TO THE SPIRIT AND RENEW YOUR THINKING. OR follow the crowd and fall right into the same ditch that they fall in.

Speaking of crowds; I know that MANY of us have experienced the fact, that when we place our dependence in the Spirit; and begin having ourselves awakened, the crowd leaves us. And I will not sit here and say that it doesn’t hurt, because it does. BUT, once the REALITY of our True Identity sets in, we shout joyfully, “Oh it is SO worth losing all that I had to lose to gain my True Self!!” And encouragement rises within us, and the knowing that at this point in His Plan, all are not called to this place. NOT YET. Oh yes, all will come to know their Identity, but God has always taken a people out of a people, when He made a move and it is still the same. So, we can rejoice that the ones we think has left us, will be with us. AMEN. No it is not an easy journey, but, no one said it would be easy, except for those preaching, “pray to die and go to heaven.” Well, we DON’T HAVE TO DIE AND GO ANYWHERE. Heaven is here and so is hell and we choose the state of being we will be in. AMEN.

We see that NO MAN is able to open the book. Things of the Spirit are foolishness to man. Only the Spirit Being can even look into the book. Now, I want to go over a few definitions, here and show that to understand, ALL RELIGION MUST GO:

1) THE BOOK: The book is not ONLY the Plan of God; it is also us. The book is also many membered. Folks, this whole book is showing us ourselves. We can believe that we are the Church; We can believe that we are the Temple of God; why is it so hard to believe that we are this book?

There are two explanations, in Strong’s Concordance that tells us something about this book. # 975, 976

# 975 says: a book; a roll; a scroll; writing.  #976 says: the inner bark of the papyrus; and a plant.

2 Peter 3:16 “As also in all his epistles (writings or books) speaking in them of these things: in which are some things hard to be understood, which thy that are unlearned, and unstable wrest, as they do also the OTHER SCRIPTURES, unto their own destruction.”

So, we see here, in this scripture, that ONE kind of book is scriptures. This was speaking of Paul’s WRITINGS. This verse is telling us, that there are those who don’t understand (the unlearned) and there are the unstable, who IF we are unlearned, we are definitely unstable. But, let’s look at OTHER books or writings:

2 Cor. 3:2-6 “YE ARE OUR EPISTLES WRITTEN IN OUR HEARTS, KNOW AND READ OF ALL MEN. Forasmuch as YE ARE MANIFESTEDLY DECLARED TO BE THE EPISTLE OF CHRIST ministered by us, WRITTEN NOT WITH INK, BUT WITH THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD, NOT IN TABLES (TABLETS) OF STONE, BUT IN FLESHLY TABLES (TABLETS) OF THE HEART. And such trust has we through Christ to God-ward. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves: but our sufficiency is OF God. Who also hath made us able ministers of the New Testament; not of the letter, but of the Spirit; for the letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life.”

So we see here that there is a different kind of BOOK, not written with ink, but with the Spirit. Now understand this: THERE ARE NOT MANY BOOKS, JUST ONE BOOK, but it is made up of a manymembered writing. You may say, well why are WE written in THEIR hearts? Simple. Are we not told, “I will write MY words on your heart.”? He did not write different Truth on different hearts; HE wrote the SAME TRUTH on each of our hearts. Some will allow it to come forth, some won’t; some will make their OWN WORDS and some don’t; some will read as if THEY are the only one with HIS TRUTH, but we are know better than that. And it is best stay away from one who thinks that only they have the Truth and the understanding, because we will end up falling in the same ditch they will fall in. I am not saying that we should just forget them; no; they are a part of us, it is just that PRIDE is taking them for a ride. But, there will come to THEMSELVES, just as the Prodigal son did.

WE are the living book; and the words of HIM is written on our INNER BARK OF PAPYRUS. AND WE ARE BEING READ BY OTHERS!! Our LIFE is the book. And we are being opened up. And “heaven and earth” ARE coming together, but first both must see eye to eye, and that is happening RIGHT NOW in a people. In Strong’s definition, it calls the inner papyrus, a plant.

A PLANT;

MT 15:13-14 “And he answered and said, Every PLANT, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”

Now really, all this is saying is that there are those who write their own book. And after they fall in the ditch, HE will help them up. The HE, is us AS HIM and HIM AS US. So don’t let the writing in the bible make it seem that everything is really dreary; because it isn’t. Right now, the part of His Plan that is happening now or manifesting now, is just His rising and manifesting through a people, out of His people. They will come along, in time.

Daniel was given a vision, just like John on Patmos, where he saw this day happening.

Daniel 12:1-10 “And at that time (this time is in connection with His people, as a many membered body, opening up the book) shall Michael (the angel of war) stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of they people: and there shall be a time of trouble (this trouble is an instability of the people, both in the natural realm and in the Spirit. Which we see happening right now) such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: AND AT THAT TIME THY PEOPLE SHALL BE DELIVERED, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth (those that depend on man, or the natural understanding) shall AWAKE, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; (this brightness and shining is that many membered ONE like unto the son of man; or those who awaken to their True Identity) and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars (teachiners) for ever and ever. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book (which was done UNTIL NOW) UNTIL THE TIME OF THE END: (this does not mean, the end of the world, it means the end of the world THE WAY WE KNOW IT NOW) many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. (THIS KNOWLEDGE is the knowledge of the Spirit) Then I Daniel looked and, behold, there stood other tow, the one on THIS SIDE OF THE BANK OF THE RIVER, and the other on THAT SIDE OF THE BANK OF THE RIVER. (this river is Jordon, which represents death. So there were two, one on each side of death. Know this, that EVERYTHING IS A MAAAAANY MEMBERED BODY; whether on this side of death or the other side of death.) Now listen to this glorious hope, And one said the MAN CLOTHED IN LINEN, (now what was “the one like unto the son of man, dressed in? White Linen!!) WHICH WAS UPON THE WATERS OF THE RIVER, (water represents, the Word. This One was standing up speaking a DIFFERENT WORD!! A LIVING WORD!!! Hallelujah!!! This is us folks. We are coming against physical death. We are PROCLAIMING LIFE!! Not for tomorrow, but for right now. We DO NOT HAVE TO SEE DEATH, AND WE ARE GIVING LIFE TO OTHERS, I WOULD CALL THAT A SAVOR!!! “Saviors shall come from Mt Zion”. Notice, SAVIOURS IS PLURAL. Obediah 21: And Saviors shall come UP on mount Zion to judge (correct what is incorrect) the mount of Esau; and the Kingdom shall be the Lord’s!!” THIS IS NOW FOLKS!! I don’t care what anyone tells you about waiting, be available for His COMPLETE MANIFESTATON in and through us!! Back to Daniel, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? (this is speaking of this PROPHESY that is here in Daniel) And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half (see my study on the Great Tribulation for the meaning of these times) and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these thing shall be finished. (We have seen that God FINISHED HIS WORK; this finished, is the MANIFESTING OF THAT FINISHED WORK HERE ON EARTH BY US!!) And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up AND SEALED till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand.” (The “wicked” is not as we think of wicked. It is those who will NOT live as WHO THEY ARE; they won’t accept the Truth of their True Identity… but in time…

If you read Daniel 10:10-14, you will see that this is the Archangel Michael who has come to Prophesy to Daniel, about the very time that we are in. And don’t let the word “end” frighten you. It simply means the end of something as we now know it, but will see it differently in the Light of Who we ARE.

We will begin in Chapter 5:6, in our next part and then we will be all over the Book of Revelation. Isn’t it good to see with HIS EYES!

PART TEN

SEPTEMBER 9, 2007

Before we go on with this sharing, I want to give you some definitions, that will help me from having to keep typing up what they mean, each time we come to them; and we will be reading about them over and over, throughout the Book of Revelation. So, you may want to print these definitions out, so you will have it close, as we go through this book.

LAMB = whenever we see the word, “lamb”, we automatically think of the man, Jesus. Yes, He was the Lamb slain. But, the word “Lamb”, used here in the Book of Revelation is not about Jesus. It is about, that One that was like unto the man Jesus, who was actually GOD. Here in Revelation the word “Lamb” is LAMBKIN.

There are three numbers in Strong’s Concordance that help us see the meaning of the word, “Lamb” in Revelation.

#704= a lamb, as a male

#721= a lambkin: lamb

#730= male (as strong for LIFTING), male, man

These numbers come from the number: #142= a prime verb: to lift; by implication, to take UP or AMONG: figuratively to RAISE (the voice), keep in suspense (the mind); specially, to sail away (weigh anchor); by Hebrew meaning; to expiate in, away with, bear (up) carry, lift up, loose, make to doubt, put away, remove, (take away, up)

For us, who know our True Identity, all these definitions fit us. Being in the image of God, we are the Lamb, just as Jesus was. We lift others. We do all that is mentioned in the Hebrew. (Check these definitions out for yourself, so you will know and meditate on. Think on it; Jesus forgave sins (as the Father). We are told “what sins you remit, are remitted; what sins you forgive, are forgiven”. We need to lose our religious ideas. We are not mere mortal men who can do nothing, and if anyone thinks they are, then they are; “as a man thinketh (believes), so is he”. We are a Spirit Being that lives in a body. And we are made up of the VERY SPIRIT that God is. “there is only one God and one Spirit…” So, this Lamb, in the Book of Revelation is not talking about Jesus, it is revealing us, as we truly are.

SEALS, TRUMPETS, AND VIALS (there are seven of each of these; SEVEN MEANS COMPLETION, PERFECTION)

SEALS= the opening of the seals represent the work of the Holy Spirit in the churches (US). The opening of the seals helps us to understand our TRUE BEING and it rising up within us. The seals are an opening of what Daniel, John was told to close UNTIL… we saw this in the last part of this. Scripture tells us: Eph. 1:13 Ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. When were we sealed? From the second He brought us forth, out from within Himself. We were sealed so that we would NEVER lose the Truth of our Being. We NEVER lost it, we forgot it for a time.

Eph. 4:30 “Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed…” Oh this will blow a lot of people away, but think on this: when we grieve the Holy Spirit, we are grieving ourselves! There is One Spirit; if we are made of that Spirit that there is only one of, then who are we grieving? I’ll let you think on that. These seals are within us, and as they are opened, more of HIM is being revealed, AS US.

As the seven seals are opened we are only seen AS HIM. Perfect (as we have always been, except in our thinking;) Completed manifestation of and as HIM. We are told in Hebrews 11:40, (…they without US (those who have passed back into that invisible realm) CANNOT come into PERFECTION (COMPLETION).There is a people they all around us; (Heb. 12:1) that their seals are being opened too!! Hallelujah!! When this process that we are almost finished manifesting is complete, those prepared, or whose seals have been removed, they too will be on this earth in a body that death and corruption can no longer touch! Each of these trumpets that sound, word that we have accepted and awakened to; and each seal that has been opened within us; and each vial opened and poured out, is a REMEMBRANCE OF OUR IDENTITY.

2 Tim. 2:19 “…having this seal, the Lord knoweth them that are His”. That are His what? Aren’t we all His? Yes, we are, but, “them that are His” is those who have broken the seal and are His very Being.

TRUMPET= when the write scripture speaks of a trumpet, it is speaking of a CLEAR SOUNDING WORD FROM GOD. When Thessalonians speaks of the Trumpet of Michael sounds, it is speaking of A CLEAR SOUNDING WORD FROM GOD, just as Daniel heard: 2 Thess. 4:16 “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first.”

Where is our heaven? It is between our ears. Where is He descending from? From between our ears. And what does He bring with Him? The mighty trumpet (message) that Michael shared with Daniel. The BLAST is awakening us, and HE IS DESCENGING INTO AND THROUGH US. This is the scripture that they use to teach, the Rapture. Yes it is about some ascending, but not ascending out of this PERFECT, BEAUTIFUL, COMPLETED planet that GOD CREATED TO LIVE AND BE SEEN IN!!! These seven trumpets have been processing us into our awakening of our True Identity, the COMPLETE AND WHOLE IMAGE THAT WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN, but forgot, as we got CAUGHT UP with the natural, material world, that we have seen out of the unclear eyes of the natural.

VIALS= Throughout the church ages, vials represented the pouring out of God’s wrath, for disobedience of His children. One of the greatest events that showed this was the destruction of Jerusalem, in 70AD. (See my study on The Great Tribulation). Now, this great tribulation is being taught by the church system, as a future event. But, after this happened, Jesus was crucified and we had our Spirit awakened, in resurrection, with Him. NOW, we do not get punished for disobedience, by God. NOW, man brings upon himself, what he expects to happen to him, because of disobedience. And “as a man thinketh, so is he”. In the church ages, the acceptance or rejection of the power, authority, and the Voice of God, brought forth the result of the vials being poued out upon them. There is still obedience and disobedience to and against God.

God has demanded that we live NOT after the flesh, but to live after the Spirit, that we are.

Rom. 8:6 “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be Spiritually minded is life and peace.”

Gen. 1:27 God created man in HIs image and likeness…”

1 John 4:17 “as he is, so are we, in this world (present arrangement)…”

These are just a few of the blasts from the Trumpet that this church age, US, have been hearing. We God shows us something, He is not showing us that Truth just because He is bored. He has a Plan and the Plan is finished and HE HAS BEEN WAITING ON US, to bring forth the manifestation of His Finished Plan.

James 5:9 “For the Lord hath long patience for it; and He WAITETH for the precious fruit OF THE EARTH, until He receive the early and the latter rain.”

It is HE that has been waiting. We keep being taught, “Wait on the Lord”; well we have seen WHO the LORD IS!! Has all the waiting that we were taught to do, changed anything? No. But now, the Glorious seven trumpet has sounded in ears that hear. They have come to the realization of Who they are. They have come to the realization of having received His fullness. They have been hearing, AWAKE, ARISE, LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE!! And there is a people who are doing it. It is NOT the human people who are doing it, it is a many memberd body that has heard with Spiritual ears, Who they are and What they are, and NOW they are allowing ONLY HIM TO BESEEN. They are willing to give all; but, you know what? They don’t have to give anything, IT IS ALREADY DONE, all they have to do is, COME QUICKLY!

So, throughout this, we will see the different vials, or works of the Spirit that has been working to come to this very time, the time for the complete manifestation to appear. His work is finished, now WE/HIM has to bring it forth to be seen by the world, and to bring the entire world to THEIR REALIZATION of Who they are.

So, in the next part, we will begin our journey through the Trumpets, through the Seals, and the Vials.

PART ELEVEN

As I have been reflecting, throughout this sharing, I love the words of a new found (yet old, old, old, friend). It makes me want to KNOW that these words she spoke are true and joyful. She said, “He in Me, as Me, is able to make known to Me, Truth. I AM...” How can we not remember our Identity when HE keeps speaking words like that? They are wonderful. Thank you, Diane.

In part 10, I gave some definitions. Also, verses showing that we are “sealed”. One mistake I did make, is that I said that “when the seals are removed (from those who have passes on)” I meant to say when the seals ARE OPENED. These seals are being opened; they are within us, and they themselves do a revealing to us.

Revelation 5:1-4 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written WITHIN and ON THE BACKSIDE, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel PROCLAIMING WITH A LOUD VOICE, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And NO MAN in heaven, not in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open the book; neither to look thereon.

Now, this is John speaking. This book that John saw was written in and ON THE BACKSIDE too. The outside of the book, was written on too. Who is the book? We are. This tells me that God’s word is not ONLY IN US, but IF we were seeing through His eyes, we would be seeing that even the FINISHED WORK that God did, includes the out side or the vessel that we live in, too. This “one like unto the son of man” had come to the place where he/they were seeing exactly as God sees, because they are in Him. And He has only one set of eyes. And He sees PERFECTLY.

And did you catch the main drift here? NO MAN was worthy. Why? Because we are not man, we are Spirit, Him. He is what makes us worthy; because of our identity. When we think that we are not worthy, what we are saying without realizing it, is that HE is not worthy. Now in the last part I showed scripture showing that we ARE SEALED. But, the carnal, natural thinking has had us sealed with something that is not Him.

So, NO MAN is worthy to open the book. WE cannot open OURSELVES (the book) unless and until our thinking changes. We have always considered ourselves to be human BEINGS. (hewed down) And we are not. Once the trumpets started blasting within us, we began hearing a CLEAR WORD FROM GOD; and where is He? Within us. Those words that He wrote in our hearts started having the seals opened. And a changed way of thinking began. Hallelujah!! No man can look inside, because the things of the Spirit are but foolishness to man.

Now this does tell us something about John and where he was in revelation of his True Identity. HE WEPT. WHY? Because he saw it as NO MAN being worthy to look in the book, let alone open it. BUT, he was about to be shown something. THE LAMB. Not Jesus, that “one like unto Jesus”.

Now, listen to the angel who knows something that John doesn’t know.

Revelation 5:5 “And one of the elders saith unto me, WEEP NOT, BEHOLD (remember what “behold” means? Someone is going to have something revealed to them that they didn’t know before) the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, HATH PREVAILED to open the book, AND to loose the seven seals thereof.” (Seven means PERFECTION or COMPLETENESS). Jesus HAD ALREADY PREVAILED ON EARTH, so we see “this one like unto the son of man”, has also prevailed. They came into the revelation of the knowledge that God gave us (John 1:16) and they USED IT TO OVERCOME the illusional thinking that they had lived in.

Revelation 5:6 “And I beheld, and lo, in the MIDST OF THE THRONE and of the four beasts (living ones), and in themidst of the elders, (remember what the elders represent) STOOD A LAMB as it had been slain, having sevens horns and seven eyes, WHICH ARE THE SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD sent forth into ALL THE EARTH.”

Now, IF the heavens are our minds; then the earth is our body. And where is God residing? In OUR EARTH. Our vehicle. All these things that John is seeing IS IN US. Now, when John saw this many membered body of people who had awakened, and here in Revelation is spoken of as “one like unto the son of man”, this is the reason John could not see A MAN worthy of opening the seals. But, what DID JOHN SEE? THE LAMB!! (Get your paper out and look at what the Lamb means, here in Revelation.)

A people had renewed their mind, to the place that all that was seen was God’s reflection. Let me say here; God does not have seven spirits. We are told in the NT, “there is only ONE SPIRIT”. These “spirits” that John saw, were attributes of God. Bare in mind, that John SAW the “one like unto” BEFORE he started explaining all this to us. John was a little bit like me, I like to tell the completion FIRST, and then explain that completion coming into manifestation. So, what we will be seeing here, in this Book, from here on out, will be the coming forth OF that “one like unto”. It is sort of like God saying, “RENEW your mind,” and us doing it, and then He says, “now look at What or Who you have been transformed into”. I love the way, I AM says and does.

Revelation 5:7-10 “And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. The throne is God’s authority. He took it out of the hand of him; He had awakened to the TRUTH that came out from within himself, from His True Identity, God, and he USED WHAT HE WAS GIVEN, GOD’S AUTHORITY.

6-10  “And when he had taken the book, the four beasts (living ones) and twenty four elders fell down before the Lambkin, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou was slain, and hast redeemed us to God by they blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. And hast made us unto our God kings and priests, and we shall reign ON THE EARTH.”

The Lambkin is a people who God manifested Himself completely through. And remember in the seven churches that the Church of Philadelphia was promised that there would come those who abused them, they would have to bow before that church.

Now, we have seen, Spiritually that ALL of the things spoken of in this Book is IN US. Of course, there were, in the natural the seven Church Ages. But, we are NOT looking for the natural understanding because we would be right back in RELIGION. But, know this, through all the Church Ages, there has always been a many membered body, blasting the Trumpets to those around them. And that was the plan of God. Each age had a place to reach, and the manymembered body of each age, did just that. They opened themselves up to reach where, in the plan, they were meat to be. But, know this also, in the invisible realm, they have been awakening just as we have and when “this one like unto the son of man” is fully manifested, there will be a people out of His people that will be prepared to hear, as Jesus said to Lazarus, “COME FORTH”, and they will, each man in his own order, just as we have been in our order. I AM thanking I AM. He/we are wondrous!! In one translation of the bible, it says, about those who have entered into that invisible realm, “they stand on tippy toes, cheering us on”. That body, that many membered body, will be ONE with the manymembered body, here on earth, that conquer death, and I can just feel in my Spirit Being, the joy and shouting that is going on in that other realm. Just as the rest of this Chapter five, shouts and celebrates, this One that John is seeing, US that remain open to HIS APPEARING in and through us, we too should be doing exactly as what John sees going on.

I will finish up this chapter, in just a bit. But, I want to tell you that as you read on, in this book, you see that each of the seals are opened, one after the other; first seal; second seal, third seal, etc. But, there are seven seals, seven trumpets and seven vials and this is how I will be sharing; first seal; first trumpet and the first vial. Because I want us to understand fully, the Spiritual meaning of all of OUR being revealed, as HIM manifesting through us.

Revelation 5:7-14 “And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts (living ones) and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lambkin, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors which are the prayers of saints. (Can’t you just see and hear those in the invisible realm shouting, you go!!) And they sung a new song, saying, (they sung a new song because they were gaining an awakening to a new life, His.) Thou art worthy to take the book: and to open the seals thereof; for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. (as He manifests ALL of our blood will be gone and we will shine as Jesus did when He opened Himself for the disciples to see His REAL BEING–God). And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. (WE must start making people to know that God has already made us kings and priests. As we minister to them, we are ministering unto God, because WE know EVERYONE’S True Identity, even if they haven’t received revelation of the Truth yet.) And I beheld and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: (Yes, are you hearing the rejoicing now that not only those who have passed over, but the angels are also celebrating) and the number of them was ten thousand times te thousand, and thousands of thousands: Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lambkin that was slain to receive power and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory and blessing. (Yes WE were slain. Out old man or the illusion of him was put to death. Yes we were slain, but we are NOW resurrected!!) And every creature which is in heaven (the Spirit) , and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, (people) , and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, (sitting on the throne represents RESTING IN THE AUTHORITY THAT WE WERE GIVEN BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, and hallelujah, we have awakened to that authority and use it as is His will.) and unto the Lambkin for ever and ever. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth tor ever and ever.”

I could do me some shouting and dancing just as I did when I was in Pentecost!! In fact, I think I will. ……..ok, I AM back!!

So, in the next part we will be looking at the first seal; the first trumpet and the first vial. Read ahead, maybe you can send me something to share. Be blessed my many parted body!!

PART TWELVE

I received this in my email and it struck such a strong truth that needs to be understood, today. Yes, in the Spirit, which we are, all of His work is finished. But, regardless of who is saying, “just sit back and claim it and watch it,” there is a part that we were ORDAINDED to do, and that is to bring that finished work into manifestation, here on earth. And yes, we do have to come to know our True Identity, which some are; but some seem to forget that there is also a part of I AM’s process called, SEEING IT MANIFESTED.

This article, by Ray Prinzing, needs to be realized. RIGHT NOW, we are either in TRUTH OR WE ARE IN A STRONG DELUSION. I choose Truth. Truth has came forth as to Who and What we are; Truth has came forth of all that is within us; Truth has came forth WITH UNDERSTANDING, and is continuing to come forth, FOR ALL. Some may choose not to receive the truth, right now, but, as the article says, they will be corrected. It is just that choosing the delusion, prolongs the MANIFESTATION OF TRUTH to be seen in them. But, IT WILL COME TO BE SEEN. Rest assured, I AM is not stupid. There was and is a plan that HE planned. Can He fail at anything? I think not.

Those who exalt themselves, who literally come right out and say, “ONLY I have the truth”, regardless of the truth that they are giving out, they themselves are in a strong delusion. And we must remember, He will USE whoever He chooses, regardless of looks, race, wealth, health, and haltiness. What must be understood is that WE ARE ALL ONE. And each of the many parts of this One, has the same truth, written within the Book that they are.

THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH

QUOTE: “Because they received not the love of truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.”2 Thes. 2:10-11

Two ways are set before us here: receiving the love of the truth to work into us into salvation; or, receiving a strong delusion, literally, an inworking delusion, so that we believe a lie. Interestingly enough, God sends them both. He brings forth vessels of mercy, and vessels of wrath.

Those who refuse, who receive not the love of the truth, in turn will receive an inworking error, and then have to pass through a judgment to be purged of that error. This is learning the lesson the hard way, having to go through a process of correctional chastening, until they learn that it is far better to receive the love of the truth. Yet God retains sovereign control over this entire process. “I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them, because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before Mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.” (Isa. 66:4) God knows exactly which inworking delusion will subdue and teach that it is an evil and bitter thing to forsake the way of the Lord.

There is a love to be received along with the truth, for knowledge alone will not hold you. When the vision tarries you soon become entangled in all sorts of strange diversions, and a prey for those spoken of in Daniel 11:14 “the robbers of thy people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fail.” Those who do not have a love for the truth will exalt themselves and set about to establish the vision – as if they were able to fulfill it, but they shall fail. When you have a LOVE FOR THE TRUTH you will not want to see any self-effort destroy, mar, or try to fulfill it after the flesh. You will wait with an eye single to God knowing He will fulfill His Word. “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.”Ps. 119:165″ UNQUOTE:

We are seeing in the Book of Revelation that His Image, He Himself, IS IN THE EARTH. We are His reflection. Exactly what and Who He is. He is us. This is HIS LIFE that we are living. And knowing this, means that the delusion that we have been living in, is gone. Truth is RISING and being SEEN. It is a process that is QUICKLY taking place, NOW.

We will be looking at the first seal being opened, in this part. And the first vial. And the first trumpet. Now, as each of these come into play, we must remember, in the natural these all took place in the seven churches, in chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation. But, more importantly, remember we are the church. Each of these things that will be spoken of will or has taken place in us. We have or will experience them, EVERYONE will. And what we want is TRUTH. We want out of the delusion that has had us bound to this earthly, religious thinking. HE IS TRUTH and because He is Truth, WE ARE TRUTH, if we allow it to rise within us and flow out of us, to the world. I bless us all.

Revelation 6:1-2  “And I saw when the Lambkin opened one of the seals, and I heard as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts (living ones) saying, “COME AND SEE”. And I saw, and behold a white horse, and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him; and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”

Here and there, I might throw in an explanation of the happenings in the natural, regarding what we will be looking at, but, for the most part, it will be about us individually. We all have not experienced the work that was prepared BEFORE the foundation of the earth, but each, in our own way have and will experience these things.

This seal is/was opened, in the natural, with the first church age. But, as we saw earlier, we can look at our relationship in/with I am, in the opening of each seal. This seal shows strongholds that were and maybe still are corrections that have to be made. Strongholds are only things that we are to turn around, to give glory to our True Identity. The taking down of the strongholds, is just us, USING the wisdom, discernment and DOMINION that we have had all this time, and maybe were not aware of. BUT, the seals are being opened; and with each opening we are ridding ourselves of the delusional thinking that we have had, UNTIL NOW. These seals speak of how the Holy Spirit has been awakening us.

In the written scripture, the horse is a symbol of strength and power. Of course, now that we KNOW our True Identity, we can see that this strength and power can and is used BOTH in the spiritual and natural realms. When we read the scripture we will see the two ways that strength and power apply.

When the word “horse” is used in relation with righteousness, divinity, or spiritual things, it means or is showing us understanding of spiritual strength: When the word “horse” is used of man’s strength and power, it is seen as man doing it.

IS 30:15-18 “For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: in returning and rest shall ye be saved; in the quietness and in confidence shall be your STRENGTH: and ye would not. But ye said, No; for we will flee upon HORSES; therefore shall ye flee; and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you be swift. One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee, until ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill. And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you; for the Lord is a God of judgment; blessed are all they that wait for him.”

This is man in man’s strength. The Lord says, do it this way; no, we’ll do it our way; man has it all worked out in his head, and thinks that he can make it with his own strength.

In Revelation we are seeing the first church; the church of Ephesus. And their downfall was that they had left their first love. In us, this is after we accept Jesus as our Saviour and the Spirit began working in us, whether it be receiving revelation, healing, prophesying, or any of the gifts of the Spirit, things want to change. I am not speaking for everyone, but I have to admit, I did leave that first love, HIM. I was caught up and excited that the gift of prophesy was working in me. I was thrilled with the gift. But, soon I was more caught up with the gift, than the giver. Oh sure, I still loved Him, but my main thought was prophesying. But, reread the first line of verse 15; “IN RETURNING and REST shall ye be saved”. MANY when going through Pentecost, forget the giver of the gifts, and are focused on the gift. Some have, and sadly still are, are dependant on what they have been given, instead of Who did the giving. It becomes their strength and power. And it WORKS!! But, eventually it dims. Then, IF they listen to what is being said WITHIN themselves, they realize, “oh my God, I did leave my first love”. But, gratefully and thankfully, we can return, and rest IN HIM. But, ONLY by returning can we keep growing, keep remembering. Remembering, until we come to know our Identity and rest in that Identity and the gifts don’t hold us spellbound, HE DOES! When we are spellbound (UNITED AS ONE) you cannot turn loose of Him, our first love, nor Him of us, Who can turn loose of themselves?

I had a FRIEND call me yesterday. We talk every day. And this person wanted to know if I thought it was a sin to go to “clubs” (bars). When I first heard, “clubs are not the same as bars”, I knew this person was facing something that had to be understood by her values. I could not tell her what to do. And I told her; clubs sell alcohol just like a bar, right? Clubs have the same atmosphere as a bar, right? and the same thing that goes on in a bar, goes on in a club, right? So, why are you refusing to call it a bar? I was sensing what was happening. So she said, “well in other words, you are saying that if I go to clubs, I am sinning, right? How can you be so judgmental and condemning?” I told her, “number one, you know that I don’t believe in SIN. Number two I am not telling you what you can and cannot do, YOU choose for yourself what you do. And IF you want to go to the bars, and you are at peace with it, by all means go. All I am saying is that, (FROM MY OWN EXPERIENCE) the bars are not the atmosphere of God. The language spoken there, the booze that eventually controls you, and whatever the trip ends up in, IS NOT ALLOWING HIS PRESENCE to come forth. It is a hindrance, that’s all.” So now, she is upset with me. And really what she is upset about is this; she wanted me to say “oh yes, we can lay drunk; we can do anything we want, and STILL WALK AS HIM. I could not say that. Yes, we still would BE Him, but we would not BE SHOWING HIS LIFE. I cannot say something that I know is of the flesh, as showing His life. NO! I AM NOT CONDEMNING, I am just saying what I know, FOR ME. EVERYONE has to choose ways to walk. Each step is for a learning. ALL THINGS ARE PURE! And learning to SHOW PURITY, we learn. To tell anyone anything that THEY must do, is exalting MY thinking above what they must learn. And if I told anyone anything to make them FEEL whatever it is they want to feel, I would be leaving what my FIRST LOVE has shown me. I will not water down a truth, to make anyone feel GOOD. We need to know, that when we ask for an opinion, be ready to hear the opinion and THEN MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND. And in making up your own mind, LISTEN FOR TRUTH.

Revelation 19:14 “And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses.

White represents Purity. So what this is saying is, “they followed Him in divine strength.”

Hab. 3:15 “Thou didst walk through the sea with thine horses…” or “with thy strength.

The day of Pentecost was sent forth with its rider (ministry) upon a white horse; Pentecost was God ordained; God given; and it moved in HIS STRENGTH and with HIS POWER and it was crowned with God’s authority. And it was beautiful, even if at the time, we did not understand it all. But, leaning on His strength, we learned.

I won’t judge, but I think that at one time or another, we have all left our first love; no matter what or who it was for. But, we did come back to it.

Revelation 6:2 “And I saw, and behold a white horse, and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given him, and he went forth conquering and to conquer.”

The first thing that I noticed here, was, the white horse was a HIM! Just as people have genders, words also have genders. The Spirit is masculine and the soul is feminine. This horse (strength) was a him, SPIRIT. The Strength of God. And the word “sat” represents, resting. The One on the white horse was resting in the strength of God. Not of man. And notice, he had a crown. He had the authority of God. The bow represents a new covenant relationship that was between us and God. Remember how God said that by the rainbow, it was a covenant that he made with us? A promise that He made to Noah? And look at what He said to us:

Hebrews 11:36-40 “And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yes, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain, with the sword; they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (of whom the world was not worthy;), they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, RECEIVED NOT THE PROMISE; GOD HAVING PROVIDED SOME BETTER THING FOR US that they without us should not be made perfect.”

WOW! If this doesn’t make us want to continue in this manifesting of Him, I don’t know what it will take! Now, this is talking about those who have passed into the invisible realm. The saints of the OT; and they went as far as God’s plan allowed them to go. And they had not received the promise, at that time that God had for us. (Understand that once Jesus died and resurrected, the promise was as good for them as it is for us. Which shows, where they are, they are still learning, just as we are, of our and their True Identity. )

There was one (a manymembered One) on a white horse, in every church age. And now, we are bringing up the rear, or the beginning, however you choose to look at it. But, that One that sat or rested in the strength of God had the authority of God, just as we do and have had. It was the strength of God that enabled us to CORRECT WITHIN OURSELVES all that had to be renewed to our mind. We are resting in HIS pure strength; we have HIS authority; and we have been going forth conquering. And we will conquer the carnal mind until all that comes forth is that Christ mind, the mind of God. Oh aren’t you glad for the corrections that have been made in you and the things that are leaving our mind so that I AM IS STANDING TALL IN US? Hallelujah!!

2 Cor. 10:2-4  We do not war after the flesh; for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of the strong holds… of Satan.”

Yes our weapons are GOD. He finished this war. The strongholds were torn down, right from the start; and now WE must manifest that finished work of His. It is done and over with and when we look through HIS eyes, we see it so, regardless of what is going on in the world that is seen with carnal eyes.

Just as Pentecost turned the world upside down, WE were turned upside down and it was the beginning of our being turned INSIDE OUT!! And just as Pentecost went through all the land, NOW we are SEEING His promise of Hebrews 11 fulfilled IN US. (It has always been there, but we had to awaken to it) HIM going throughout the world, as us and us as HIM!!

Joel 2:1 “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain.”

This word, “alarm” means: to mar (especially by breaking); to split the ears (with sound), i.e. SHOUT (for alarm or joy); blow as alarm, cry, destroy, make a joyful noise, smart, triumph.

Oh I know what you all are feeling, because we are ONE and I AM feeling it too. So, we see the first seal was opened in the natural first church; but thankfully it was opened in each one of us. Hallelujah!!

Speaking of NOISE, SOUND, and SPLITTING THE EARS, this brings us to the first trumpet.

I want you to know, that throughout the talking about the seals and the trumpets and the vials, I WILL BE SPEAKING IN PAST TENSE: as if we were just now going through them. As you will find, 95% of the Book of Revelation has been fulfilled!! And those finished works of God that He had done, HAS BEEN MANIFESTED IN US!! But, the process of bringing forth the other five percent is NOW coming forth.

Now, as I said in the definitions that I gave in an earlier part, TRUMPET represents A CLEAR SOUNDING WORD FROM GOD. Now, John was allowed to see ALL seven of the church ages; the moves of God; the changes; the preparation for the next move, John was allowed to see it all. Right down or up, maybe I should say, to the seventh church age. WE are seeing ALL seven of the changes in the church, (US), too. We are going to be getting a real awakening to our place in Him and His place in us. ONE, not together, JUST ONE!!

For the first trumpet, turn to Revelation 8.  

Revelation 8: 2-7 “And I saw seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth; and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth; and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.”

Now remember, the heaven is our mind; the earth is our body, our carnality, as well as the physical earth.

So these trumpets are a clear word from God. He can speak to us, through us, through scripture, through ANYTHING OR ANYBODY that He chooses to. So, we have to receive by the Spirit; we cannot LOOK at WHO He speaks through or WHAT He speaks through. We ONLY know His trumpeting voice, by the Spirit. The Voice of God is God in any or all of its manifestations.

The first angel sounded the first trumpet (in the first church age AND IN US). The first angel SHOUTED, or sounded the trumpet; “and there followed hail fire”. Hail represents TRUTH. When John saw the hail, it was representing to us, what was said in Isaiah.

ISA 28:17 “Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet; AND THE HAIL SHALL SWEEP AWAY THE REFUGE OF LIES and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.”

The HAIL (truth) shall sweep away the refuge of lies. hmmm. Now, some people call there trashcans, refuge. And that is exactly where we put our “refuge’. Now the hail, or truth is going to sweep away lies, right? Let’s look a couple of scriptures UP and see an example of the lies that are going to be swept away.

ISA 28:15-16  “Because YOU have said, WE have made a covenant with DEATH, and with HELL are we at AGREEMENT; when the overflowing scourge (Holy Spirit) shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for WE have made lies our REFUGE (trash), and under FALSEHOOD have WE HID OURSELVES.”

Boy!! We didn’t know how incorrect we were in our thinking, back in our baby days, in the Lord, did we? We were taught that we HAVE TO SEE DEATH (I am speaking of PHYSICAL DEATH). We not only heard it, WE PREACHED it, with our everyday words. “Oh God has appointed a time of death for everyone and there is nothing can stop it.” “The only thing we can be sure of is paying taxes and death.” “Well once you hit 60, it’s all downhill and then death.” Haven’t we all heard or spoke these words? I know I did. And just to show how TRUE scripture can be, it says, “out of the heart, the mouth speaks” “as a man thinketh so is he”. We did not know THEN that we are creators! And we create with our words! We know better now!!

So, what this scripture is saying, is that as long as we keep lies our refuge, those lies will keep death and hell right there in our life, and we will see death. And we are making our own hell, right here on earth. Did you know, that the word hell, in the Hebrew is Hades? And it was a place where REFUGE WAS BURNED, ALONG WITH DEAD BODIES? Look at Isaiah.

ISA 28:18 “And YOUR covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourg shall pass through, then YE SHALL BE TRODDEN DOWN BY IT. From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you; for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night; and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.”

I don’t want to leave you discouraged. So turn to:

PSA 102:18-20 “This shall be written for the generation to come; and the people, which shall be created shall praise the Lord. For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth; To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to LOOSE THOSE THAT ARE APPOINTED TO DEATH; (I encourage you to read the rest of this chapter). Remember where His sanctuary is, US. The People that was to be created, IS US BY THE REMEMBERING OF OUR TRUE IDENTITY. The heaven is our mind, and the earth this body that we inhabit. And WE HAVE BEEN LOOSES FROM DEATH!!

2 Tim. 1:9-10 “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according TO HIS OWN PURPOSE AND GRACE, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began. (Who was Jesus before He incarnated in this earthen realm, I AM.) But IS NOW MADE MANIFEST by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, WHO HAS ABOLISHED DEATH, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.”

God HAS NEVER had death in Him. And we are made out from within HIM, so death was never in His plan for us. It was the lies that we have made our refuge, the cause of death continuing year after year; century after century. NOW, we no longer live that covenant that we had made with death and hell. Sadly, most of the world still have that covenant, but He has always called a people out of a people, and moved with and through as AS.

The trumpet has sounded in us and we received it. All thanks to the merciful I AM.

I was hoping to get the seal, the trumpet and the vial finished in this part. But, it is longer than I had planned. (I AM thanking I AM). So, in part 13 we will finish up the vial and begin on the second seal.

PART THIRTEEN

SEPTEMBER 18, 2007

Before we start, let me make clear what I said at the beginning of this series. THE SEALS THAT WE WILL BE GOING THROUGH ARE NOT PRESENT TRUTH! NOW! They WERE Present Truth to us at that time. But Present Truth keeps coming forward, throughout our walk. Each seal that is opened is a step in our walk of awakening to our True Identity. Each seal represents what we believed at certain places in our walk from babyhood to full maturity. When the seventh seal is opened and the seventh trump is blown, all that will be seen, will be I AM. Like I said, IT IS A PROCESS, THIS WALKING OUT OF THE DELUSION. There WAS a place in our walk when we DID BELIEVE that the strong delusion CAME FROM GOD. At a place in our walk, we believed that ALL things came from God. I DID NOT say that the strong delusion comes from God. I said, WE CHOOSE THE STRONG DELUSION when we are not lovers of truth. And the article that I included, in part 12, was good to show the BELIEFS of some of us, at a place in the younger years of our walk. So, as I said, and I want to make myself clear; each seal that is being/ or has been opened WITHIN US, simply represents a teaching of a particular time in our walk, that we are/have walked out of, and ONWARD to Present Truth. Each person’s seals are not opened at the same time. But, they will open and as they do, each one of us will WALK OUT OF THE DELUSION WE HAVE BEEN BELIEVING. So, before someone sends out MY studies with condemnation, PLEASE read it right, in the first place. As I said at the beginning of this series, 95% of the Book of Revelation HAS BEEN FULFILLED, but, to look at ALL the seals, we have to look back and say, “oh I remember when I was there and had to leave that particular place, in order for I AM to rise up higher in us. So, with each seal that we look at, please know that each seal was a place we WALKED OUT OF. A babe could not have said, “I AM ONE IN I AM”. But, when that babe’s seals were opened, THEN he will have received BY THE SPIRIT the Present Truth of where he might be today.

I wanted to start on the first vial. But, we need to look at Chapter 15 of the Book of Revelation first.

Revelation 15:1-5 “And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire; and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of of God, and the song of the Lambkin, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty: just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? For thou only are holly: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest. And after that I looked and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened.”

Chapter 15 introduces us to the vials of the wrath of God. Let me make it clear. THERE WAS A TIME WHEN WE BELIEVED IN THE WRATH OF GOD. WE NOW KNOW THAT THERE IS NO WRATH OF GOD NOW!!! But we did not always know this. So the vials that we will be looking at, is at the time we DID NOT know that God DOES NOT send wrath upon us, but WE have brought it upon ourselves, out of ignorance. As we go through the vials, think back, did we not EXPECT God to punish us, at different levels in our walk? This is what the vials are. We must remember as we go through this book, John got to see ALL OF THE SEVEN CHURCH AGES, right up to the Holy Jerusalem coming down from heaven”. Which we are.

Before the last church age is finished, or the full manifestation of I AM in and as us, we will see that the wrath of God shall have been satisfied, against sin, unbelief and disobedience. (Some of us see this already, but this is not a series for the “elect”, but for all of us. John saw the entire plan, laid out before him. He saw the “evil”, but he also saw the redeemed who at the end of the seventh seal KNEW THEIR TRUE IDENTITY; KNEW THAT THERE IS NO SIN; AND KNEW THAT THEY HAD BEEN LIVING BY THE DELUSIONAL THINKING OF THE CARNAL MIND. He didn’t understand all that he saw, but he wrote what he did see.

John heard them sing the song of Moses, which I believe are the people of the OT, and those who are still living under the law. And he heard them sing the song of the Lambkin. That is US who have not only come out of the law, but also have received the understanding that we are ONE IN HIM. These singing the song of the Lambkin are praising for coming out from under the thinking that we were of a beastly nature. Because now, we know there has always been only ONE NATURE in us, HIS. This was a seal that was opened in us. John saw the total evil; BUT he is shown another view; “And after that I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened.” John was seeing a people as ONE, who did not see evil anymore, they saw only HEAVEN, (Spirit). The temple really means the abiding place of God and His Presence. This is US. The difference is, that in the OT the temple was a man made temple; but now, that temple is us, NOT man made.

Revelation 15:6-7 “And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. And one of the four beasts (living ones) gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.”

Keep in mind, that WE are the temple, throughout our walk we have received messages (trumpets from God), sounding pure and holy truths. We know that we are priests, and the golden girdles are simply bindings of what He put in our hearts. But, we have been being awakened by the vials being poured out WITHIN US by correcting of our thinking. The seven angels are instructed to pour out the plague of the vials, on the earth. It is for destruction, but also for fuller realization of full salvation. Destruction of what we have believed and realization of Who and What we are. This destruction of the delusional thinking that we have had will bring forth the True Identity; and ALL the seals must be opened. ALL the trumpets must be sounded; and ALL the vials must be poured out, for the total manifestation to take place, right here on earth.

We went from: 1Cor. 13:9, 10, 12 “For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. For now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face; now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am know.”

To this Present Truth knowing: 1 John 4:17 “As He is, so are we in this world”

1Cor. 15:53 “For this corruptible (mind) must put on incorruption, and this mortal (thinking) must put on immortality.”

And this happened as our seals were opened and the trumpets sounded and the vials were poured out. We are still experiencing the seventh seal, trumpet and vial; and when it is manifested, we won’t know us, as us. Amen. We know ourselves as Him, now, but it must manifest. Then cometh THE END……the end of life as we have known it.

Revelation 15:8 “And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power: and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.”

This, we are realizing now. Man cannot be filled with the glory of God, only Spirit, His Spirit, His Being is filled with His glory. People get upset when I say, I am not human. This body is but I am Spirit. But, as I experience Him as me and me as Him, even this human body will change from human, to one that death and corruption can touch.

OK, what are the vials? The vials are the result of our acceptance or rejection of the renewing of the mind. The acceptance of or the rejection of, the power, authority and the Voice of God. The more we reject, the longer the manifestation will take. This is why it says, “each man in his own order”. There has always been a people taken out of a people, who believed and accepted the trumpet that they heard; and move on to the next trumpet.

So, it is the first angel that pours out the first vial of the wrath of God upon the earth. The earth is people. There were those who refused to accept Jesus, in His day. But, there were those who did accept Him. It is the same today. Many will not accept what the Spirit is saying today, because they have not heard it before. But, the trumpet comes to speak to us, not only through the Holy Spirit, but also through the Holy Spirit speaking to us through people. IF we discern and know His Voice, either we do accept it, or we don’t. Many have heard, but will not accept for a lot of reasons. They won’t agree, unless their pastors tell them to; many don’t want to lose friends; many don’t like being made fun of, or condemned. But, when we hear that trumpet, I don’t care what anyone says, I want what the trumpet offers, for the most brilliant preacher, cannot give me what that trumpet can, or maybe I should say, what that trumpet can bring forth in me.

Revelation 16:1-2  “And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth, and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast and upon them which worshiped his image.”

The mark of the beast. There has been every story believable about this mark. It has been said that it is a tattoo on the forehead or hand. It is said to be a chip that is implanted under the skin. It is neither. It is so simple to see, the meaning of this mark and the number which represents it, 666.

The head speaks of the mind. The hand speaks of one’s ministry (and we are all a ministry). We are told, “out of the heart, the mouth speaks”. So, all this means is a belief that is embedded in our heart (mind). It is a nature that people operate out of.

The number 3, means complete; the number 6 represents the flesh. So one with the mark of the beast is simply one that is thoroughly flesh, spirit, soul and body. Completely unbelieving of truth. And yes, Christians are really the ones who carry this number. The world could care less. I will give you and example;

John 1:16 “of His fullness have WE ALL RECEIVED.”

1John 4:17 “As He is, so are we in this world”.

Gen. 2:2 ...God finished His work”.

John 17:5 “,..I have finished the work thou sent me to do”.

When we are thinking with the carnal mind, and read these scriptures, and we REFUSE to believe them because of what we see with the natural eyes; what are we doing? Acting out of the carnal. And the carnal words we say about these truths create. They created a DISBELIEF in our hearts. So we go on not believing that they are true NOW, but maybe when we die and get to heaven. That carnality brings death. AND GOD DID NOT INTEND FOR US TO SEE DEATH, JUST THE DEATH OF THE CARNAL THINKING. So that thinking is ANTI-CHIRST. It is AGAINST the Christ mind. And it is believed unto death. It is the mark of the beast nature.

And how grievous it must be to “wake up” in the invisible realm and say, “oh my gosh, I believed myself to the very place I am at”. You know, people are STILL saying, “I am waiting on God to do this or do that”, but, what were we told? HIS WORK IS FINISHED. The work He did as the man Jesus, IT IS FINISHED. Either we believe it and know that there is a part that we must play, or we wait ourselves right in to the grave! EVERYONE says we believe the bible, the Spirit etc. And yet, they will add words to HIS WORDS as though it is some kind of excuse.

Listen, He finished ALL HIS work in the Spirit realm; WE HAVE TO BRING IT FORTH INT THE EARTH REALM. I am not talking about religious works. I am talking about BELIEVING HIS WORD. IF He tells us to do something, then He HAS ALREADY PROVIDED A WAY TO DO IT. There is no getting around it. Folks, we need to grasp this, and start changing our mind. YES WE CAN DO IT.

He has already given us the Mind of Christ. It is the changing of the mind that is bringing forth what HE HAS ALREADY DONE IN THE SPIRIT. WE are holy; we are pure; we are complete. He isn’t going to make us these things. WE must take our thoughts captive and do it until it takes root in our heart, because that is where He speaks from.

So, in the first church age, they forsook HIS truth and ran after the council of man. And some are still doing it. Some heard this first trumpet and gave heed to it. They have forsaken a dependence on MAN and put their dependence to what the Spirit says. And IF one has heard the seventh trumpet and I have not, DON’T RUSH ME, I will get there.

The first church age started seeking man. And before you know it, ERROR in teaching crept in. And doctrines of MAN took over, warring against the Truth. This brought forth the wrath of God. What wrath was in that first vial? The Holy Ghost caused there to be and exposure of all of the evil, fleshly and carnal systems of MAN’S religions. Now, John saw this as “noisome and Grievous Sore. It brought forth the sore of “sin” and spiritual leprosy.

As they refused the Lord, they were banished from His presence. Isaiah called them “sinners in Zion” (ISA 33:14)

This vial tells the people “to be carnally minded is death, to be spiritually minded is life and peace” (Rom. 8:6)

The first church age was an age full of power of God, straight from the throne. Many fought against it, and still do. They refuse to believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit; they refuse to believe in the gifts of the Spirit. This brought about the wrath of God. (in that first church age)

NOW, we are told to “leaving the DOCTRINE of Christ; of baptisms; of working of gifts, and go on into perfection”. BUT, we did HAVE TO WALK THROUGH THOSE THINGS, but not stay there. And all these did not work the same in everyone. For instance, in Corinthians we are told, “All will not speak in tongues; all will not heal; all will not prophesy”.

We were to do as we HEARD HIM TELL US TO DO.

So, I see this first vial as leaving the hearing of the Spirit, and going into MAN MADE DOCTRINES. The wrath of God was poured out on the first church age. WITH US, God had no wrath that was all taken care of at the cross. But, there is suffering and struggling for those today who has their dependence in man. IF it could be called “wrath”, you know what it would probably be? It would be after depending on man, to be crushed, when that man failed us.

PART FOURTEEN

SEPTEMBER 19, 2007

We are starting on the second seal that was opened for the second church age, by the second angel. This was the church of Smyrna. In the natural, this was the decline of the Apostolic church. It is dated to be about, from 70AD to AD 120. When we read about the seven churches in Chapters 2 and 3, I didn’t go into a lot of detail, but there are some things we need to know, about those natural church ages, for understanding.

The Smyrna Church Age was the early persecuted church of the Apostolic decline. And through all this persecution, iniquity started up and a lot of the people started growing away for the church. This was the time that Jesus prophesied about the destruction of the temple, and Jerusalem was overtaken. These verses that we will look at are the same verses that many are preaching about The Great Tribulation which is to come. BUT, the Great Tribulation took place in 70AD.

MT 24: 4-12 “And Jesus answered and said unto them, take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name saying, I am Christ: and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, BUT the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you; and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. AND MANY FALSE PROPHETS SHALL RISE, AND SHALL DECEIVE MANY. AND BECAUSE INIQUITY SHALL ABOUND, THE LOVE OF MANY SHALL WAX COLD”.

And if you study the seven church ages, you will see that this is exactly what happened. Now, this was in 70AD, and we still see it happening today. And even back then carnal teachings crept into the church.

John saw this as “spiritual poverty”. It was the time when much of God’s Truth was being destroyed (or so it seemed) and was being compromised. Man’s minds and teachings were implanted into the church leadership.

This was also the beginning of a great falling away from the leading of the Holy Spirit. At this time Pentecost had already taken place and the Apostolic ministry that followed it. Some of the teachings were from time past; some were old wives tales; some were of the heathens; and some just plain old false religions.

This is WHY the vial was poured out on the people.

Today, we see people trying to mix old truth with Present Truth and it will not work. There are those who, although they are hearing the trumpet, still want to “wait on God to do something”. HE IS NOT GOING TO DO ANYMORE!!! HE FINISHED HIS WORK and is NOW waiting on us to bring it into manifestation. Many still hold on or allowed the guilt consciousness to work within them, and the trumpet NOW blowing is saying, it cannot work, RENEW YOUR MIND!! He did not say, “I AM GOING TO RENEW YOUR MIND”.

And listen, there are millions who will tell you that you cannot learn with your natural mind; I am here to tell you that that is where it all starts!! By reading and studying and meditation on what you read and study. You take it into the depth of your Being, the SPIRIT, and it will all be cleared up for your understanding. I never could understand how everyone puts the natural mind, completely out of the picture. When I find out something in the natural, of course that mind cannot understand it, but, when I take it to the Spirit, it is made clear. TO ME, this is heaven and earth coming together. Of course, we must ALWAYS go to the Spirit for understanding of any truth, but come on, let’s be honest; didn’t we start out reading, studying and hearing the word preached? And AGAIN, YES!! We did and do have to take those things to the Spirit, but, the mind that is being renewed IS THE NATURAL MIND. It is being renewed to NEW UNDERSTANDING. We are not going to receive a NEW MIND! It is the mind that we have lived with that is being changed in its thinking. The doctrines of man, comes from NOT taking something from the natural mind, to the Spirit, so that that natural mind is changed in some of its thinking. We have the perfect mind of Christ, RIGHT NOW; we just have to sweep the dust off of it.

Back then, in 70 AD, there were those who wanted to be called “an apostle”. And guess what it is still here today. These will tell you that ONLY they are right; ONLY they have the truth; and if you don’t do things THEIR way, you are carnal, out of the Spirit; and all that bologna. Why? They are seeking RECOGNITION!! Oh, they are very “religious” about it. But then they start telling everyone, how this got healed because of ME or MY ministry; this one got money because he or she listened to ME. And on and on and on. If your discernment is working, you will see it as A NEED OF RECOGNITION. And our recognition belongs to ONLY ONE. ELOHIM, of who we are One in. So, these people started receiving all this, and they grew cold.

Now, the second seal.

Revelation 6:3-4 “And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.”

These beasts are the Gospels, which is the Spirit speaking to us. (He does speak to us, in the Word as well as in meditation). Now, what Jesus tell us, regarding exactly is being seen by John?

MT 10: 34-35  Think not that I AM come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace BUT A SWORD. For I AM come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.”

He didn’t come to SEND PEACE, HE WAS PEACE!! And He HAD COME. That peace came within us. We have it now. But, those who came against Him and HIS TRUTH came condemnation and judgment. Now, this was while God (as the man Jesus) was walking the earth. NOW, there is no condemnation. Jesus NEVER one day walked from under the law. He was under the law all the time He walked the earth, He had to be, in order to fulfill the law. But, upon His and our death on the cross and our resurrection, all that changed. The problem today is, that not all know this.

This second church age was the age that the bible was completely written. This Book of Revelation had been written in this church age. It was and is part of God’s Plan for this bible to make it world wide. But, as we will see, there is a time, when the Spirit and only the Spirit can give understanding to the parts of the bible that were inspired of God. This age was the age of the ending of the Sun Worshiper of Egypt; the Greece mythology; the paganism of Rome and Italy and all the false religious systems of man. The message of “The Blood of the Lamb” went world wide.

The second trumpet sounds.

Revelation 8:8-9 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea; and the third part of the sea became blood: And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died : and the third part of the ships were destroyed.”

Again, this is all symbolism. It is the way JOHN saw it. It is written in JOHN’S words. Of course, today, we don’t speak as John did. There are many who “try” to speak as John did, but it is just a religious covering. So let’s look at these symbols. Folks, the bible really does explain itself.

What is the great mount of the Lord? Zion! The church! US!! And it was and is burning with the Holy Ghost AND FIRE. “OUR GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE!!” That fire that John saw actually came on Pentecost. And the people were filled with it. John sees people as “a sea”. When Pentecost came, not Azusa Street, but in the day of Jesus, approximately one thinrd of the actual earth’s surface was affected by the ministry of the first and second church ages. We must remember, at that time, the world was not all that it is today.

Are you beginning to see how much of this Book of Revelation has already been fulfilled!!! I hope so.

All those that fought the truth and rejected the Truth of the Spirit, of that day, died and perished off the earth. But, GREAT NEWS!! They are awakening, just as we are; only now, they are in the invisible realm. GOD WILL NOT LOSE ONE PERSON, NOT ONE!!

And the second vial.

Revelation 16:3 “And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dad man: and every living soul died in the sea.”

The Second Angel, of the second church age sounded the second trumpet, and also poured out the second vial. Remember, these vials were the dispensational results of the acceptance or rejection of what the trumpet (the clear message from God), said. These vials brought change in each church age.

Just as the second trumpet sounded against the “Sea of humanity”, the second vial was poured out on “the Sea of humanity. Remember, the word “sea” represents people (which we will see further into this sharing). This second vial became as “the blood of dead men”. (Rev 16:3) Not dead in the natural, but dead spiritually. They were what the scary movies call “the walking dead”. Where there is no LIGHT, there is death (you know, actually “death” can be defined as ignorance) PLEASE understand, the Spirit does not literally die, as the Spirit cannot die. But, what I am saying is this. Do you remember how ALIVE you felt when you accepted the Salvation message? It seemed, at least to me, that the whole world had changed. I believed that because I had changed, EVERYONE would change too. Oh, those childish expectations!! But as we will see, ALL WILL CHANGE THEIR THINKING. Amen! But, we didn’t realize that before we came to accept His Salvation that we really had been walking as the dead. Our thoughts, and even the things we did, that could have literally brought us to literal death, our life back then, was a spiritual death.

And every living soul died in the sea.”

Think about it; when Jesus went to the cross and resurrected, who all resurrected with Him? EVERYONE!! They resurrected to their True Identity, right then; even though many do not recognize it yet. But, they will. I am not just talking about Christians, I am talking about every being ever brought forth. Whether on earth, or in the galaxies that we don’t even know about yet, EVERYONE resurrected out of the death in the sea. And this is one reason why we HAVE to see EVEYONE as they really are. They may not know it yet, BUT WE DO. NOW, NO ONE IS SPIRITUALLY DEAD, some may think they are, (and some JUDGERS think they are) but that Spirit is lieing in wait, and when one of the “vials” come their way, they will wake up and start their journey, just as we have.

So, this was the second vial. Those of the second church age that lived in faith brought in the third church age. The church of Pergamos, The Black Horse Age. This second church age was The Red Horse Age.

In the first seal, we saw that with the first church, what God was not pleased with, is that they left their first Love. This does not mean that they walked away and just put Him out of their lives. Leaving our first love can be done in many ways. In the case of the first church, it meant that they turned to man, instead of Him. They took up with manmade doctrines, rather than listening to and allowing the Spirit to lead.

The second seal was the beginning of the end, of life as they knew it, and as we know it.

Knowing that WE are the church, we look at it differently. It is nice to know the history of the literal seven churches, but, we have come to the place that WE are, what we are concerned with, today, HIM. It is allowing Him to be seen, that is what we want. Our leaving our first love can be and was, for some of us, depending on man to show us truth. By doing so, the “wrath” that we received, was getting all kinds of garbage put in us.

The second vial was as you have read, for those of the day of Jesus, but, with us it was that we believed all the mistaken teaching, and in time, grew tired of not seeing any change in ourselves, and may have even waxed a little cold; but, then we learn or realized our True Identity. We know that all that we have walked through, the mistakes that we made, (and they weren’t really mistakes) but was for a reason, a learning to take dominion.

This second seal, trumpet and vial we can now look back and see them and remember them and be grateful for them.

As I said, we do not face the wrath of God anymore. Once we realized Who HE made us, we know that He sees us exactly as we came out from within Him. And the opening of all the seven seals, and the trumpets, and experiencing learning the mistakes we are making, is what is awakening us to the Image that we are. So, as we look at the “wrath” that is in the vials, please know, this is history of the church ages, literally. Our awakening has taken us from the thought that God will pour wrath upon us because as He says, “All things are pure”. We just have to realize that He is in all things and when times seem troubled, we have to look for HIM in that trouble.

In the next part, we will look at the third seal, trumpet and vial.

PART FIFTEEN

SEPTEMBER 20, 2007

We have come to the third church age and what God said about it; also, the seal that was opened; the trumpet that sounded, and the vial that was poured out, by the third angel. Now, remember when I said that the Book of Revelation is 95% fulfilled? Well, can you see that all that we have looked at so far IS THE PAST? Not only historically, but, in our experience, our walk BACK into the reality of BEING ONE IN ELOHEIM. I realized that most have not experienced all this, yet. That will be the work of “the One like unto” , to do. This work will be the bringing of the WORLD to their True Identity.

I want to start out, looking back at this third church, the Church of Pergamos.

Revelation 2:14-15 “But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there, those that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel; to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolatians, which thing I hate.”

Spiritual fornication is becoming one with any thing or anyone, other than HIM.

This is the age when there was a great rising of Catholicism. The spread of Christianity became like a great tree. All KINDS of things came to nest in this tree, but, never became a part of the church. They used the name of the church to promote the false church systems of the antichrist. ANYTHING against His Truth is antichrist. Look at a scripture that describes this church age to a T.

IS 4:1  “And in that day seven women shall take hold on one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel; only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.”

IS 5:13 “Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honorable men are famished (in the original, their glory is men of famine) and their multitude dried up with thirst.”

This church did not seek for the Voice of the Holy Spirit; and their leaders were humanistic and of the beast nature, and of carnal understanding regarding the things of God. They followed after the world and its riches; the flesh and the devils. Lying spirits worked through these carnal religious leaders.

“God said, I know where Satan’s seat is”… Satan’s seat is in the heart of all who do not follow God. Satan is the fleshly and carnal minds and will of man. Let me say here, those of us who have received the revelation of our True Identity KNOW that the demons and the devil was destroyed IN OUR LIVES. (Heb 2:14-15)

I’d like to share the words of a precious sister to me, to show how this age was, and some are still in it:

Quote: I did not realize that the first written scriptures were dated 300 or 400 a.d. ... I thought that the bible was what Paul and Peter and all quoted… that was so stupid of me, I know…

Constantine CONTROLLED what comprised the first version of the Scriptures... was he a Christian, well what did it actually mean to be a Christian… Paul and James were separate faction shortly after the death of Jesus, and James was his brother. If you read all articles about the council of Nicea, it would be impossible not to form the opinion that greed and money were at the core of the outcome…nothing really about what Jesus was trying to teach us when He was with us… I was raised in the catholic church…we NEVER referred to the bible for anything, we had a catechism that had the imprimatur or nihil obstat…if a book of religious study did not have those two “stamps” we were NOT allowed, as Catholics, to read them…

Come on now people, the early church that was controlled by Constantine was a political money oriented church, there were NO truths presented… .there were, however, a remnant of truth, lightworkers, who spread the message that I AM started...come on, do you not think that our great Source, I AM, would be outdone….in HIS time, and when HE wanted, the dream will end... the dream being that man, humanity, carnality can ever catch “a wave”… if ever anyone ever asks the question of if God laughs, I would say, HE CAN ONLY LAUGH… there are no tears in I AM there are only tears in man… the sooner we stop crying and get back to the laughter of being I AM the sooner there will be a giant ahha… told you it would never work Adam End Quote. And thank you, Jonna for sharing this with us.

When Jonna was speaking of Constantine being a controller, this is what was said to the third church age:

Revelation 2:15  “So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.”

This word “Nicolaitans” means; controller of people. This church age controlled the people of the churches. Still, it goes on today. There are millions, and not just in the Catholic Church, but some in the Kingdom Message, are ruled over by people that make them think: “Come to me and I will heal you; come to me or be sick and poor”. Maybe not their original words, but the attitude is the same. There are many who will not seek the Spirit for themselves, but depend on these “teachers.” These leaders even try to tell people HOW to hear the Lord. “Do it his way or you won’t hear”. WE know that IF one takes the time to seek Him, He will answer. “Ask and you will receive”. Just as it was back in the day of the third church age, it is still the same. IF you want HIM, seek Him, within yourself. If you are depending on a man/woman to hear FOR you, you will not hear His Voice. Now, we don’t have to ask, for He tells us, call things that are not as though they are. We have walked out of the control system, being it a building or a person. OUR dependence is HIM.

There were those who did remain faithful to their God. These are they “who held fast the name of the Lord Jesus Christ” and refused to deny the faith and the True Spiritual Leadership of the Spirit. Many of these became martyrs for the cause of Christ. God caused the overcomers to eat hidden manna and He said, Give the overcomers a white stone, a precious heavenly reward, and in the stone a new name written, which mo man noweth saving he that receiveth it.” The receiving of the new name,,, is a revealed name, that name is Spiritual . For those still in the man Jesus, the name is Jesus Christ.

Eph 3:14-19 “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, (vs 19) And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.”

And now, for those who know their True Identity, they know all that they are.

John 1:16  “For we ALL HAVE RECEIVED the fullness of Him.”

Just as it was back then, there are many who claim to be walking in the Kingdom, yet they allow themselves to still be controlled; not only by their pastors, but by husbands, wives, children and MONEY!! IF someone is staying in a church that they themselves tell you, “my church is so dry and dead”, and yet they keep paying their TITHES to that church, this is control Fear. We are told “if you lay down with a harlot, you become ONE with her.” Some of these people SOUND so spiritual, and yet they are so controlled. When tithes are paid to an “institution” and that institution is dry and dead, so are the payers of the tithes.

Revelation 6:5-6  “And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse: and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny: and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”

Now, remember that it is the Lambkin who is opening these seals. The Lambkin is “the one like unto..” of Revelation 1:13. A black Horse. This is the symbol of darkness and black days of oppression for all true believers. A divine balance is called for against many of the Pergamos church age. All that failed to follow on, in the truth, were “weighed in the balances and found wanting”. This was also seen in the people in the day of Daniel, and sad to say, still today. This age of darkness show many of the false doctrines of man. And also the birthing of more erroneous teachings in the church, “teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (MT 15:9, Mark 7:7)

Among those doctrines of men that were birthed during the third church age was the doctrine of “Thrietheism”. The question was ask “Will there be “one measure” or will there be “three measures for a penny”? The penny is symbolic of eternal life. (read MT 11:1-9). A penny was paid to all that labored in the vineyard. A penny for ALL=Eternal Life for all that follow God. The measure is our aspect of God. Is HE “one measure” or is HE “three measures”? Many have traded revelation and truth for the doctrines of men.

See thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”

In all that was happening in and among the Christians, there was a divine assurance that nothing could hurt the “oil and the wine.” The Oil and Wine represent the Holy Ghost outpouring that began on the day of Pentecost and has continued throughout EVERY AGE from then, right up until NOW. And folks, the gates of hell have not prevailed against it. This was the third seal opened.

Revelation 8:10-11 “And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters: And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood, and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.”

The third angel sounds the third trumpet.

“There fell a great star from heaven….” The stars are used to show and depict the ministry or the ministering of the brethren. We were told in Revelation 1:20 who the stars are. “The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels (messengers) of the seven churhes….”

Joel 2:10, 3:15, “…and the stars (ministry) shall withdraw their shining (authority.)”

Jude 1:13, “…wandering stars (false ministries.)”

Stars represent LIGHT. Jesus said, I AM the Light of the world”. WE are told about ourselves, “YE are the light of the world”. Jesus and His followers caused the “religious” rivers, and the “fountains” of spiritual drinking waters of man to become bitter. Those of that day that insisted on continuing in their false traditions and rituals of man made religions, perished.

Today, it is almost the same. IF we believe that we have to see physical death, because of the lies that we have believed, then yes, we will see physical death. Jesus tasted death, so that we don’t have to. Also, if we insist on believing that we are HUMAN BEINGS, instead of SPIRIT BEINGS, then all that goes with the natural will come to us, and that includes death. The carnal and carnal doctrines IS DEATH. How many times have we heard, “pray that you die and go to heaven”. It was like speaking a death sentence upon us. And we believed it for a long time, but now, OUR LIGHT IS SHINING: we KNOW what and Who we are; we KNOW that the flesh is just a vehicle that we use. Spirits do not die. Our trumpet has sounded and we are hearing!! Hallelujah!! We are of the LIVING WATER; to follow any other is death. We are the star and we have the authority of I AM.

Revelation 16:4-7 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and the fountains of water; and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shall be, because thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink: for they are worthy. And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.”

We saw the sounding of the third trumpet was the sounding of how false religious rivers, and the fountains of man’s doctrine turned bitter. Each church age has a message, and the message to the third church was, “See that you hurt not the oil and the wine”. Every age demanded a response from those that received the Word of the Lord. And their response was as ours is today, either acceptance or rejection of what we hear from the I AM. Back then, their response of their acceptance or rejection resulted in the pouring out of the vial for that age.

In the pouring out of the third vial, John continues to see the destruction unto all who would not receive THE TRUTH. So the third vial is poured out upon the (spiritual) rivers, or the fountains of MEN and the waters became blood. The blood of the Lamb cried out against all evil and falsity. An example of this can be seen in Acts 17:22-34. It was Paul’s sermon at Mars Hill. He saw all the temples built for idolistic worship of Greek mythology. At the altar he saw the inscription, “TO THE UNKNOWN GOD”. He told them that they were superstitious, then in one message fo the truth of Jesus, Paul disannulled their entire form of idol worship. Those who rejected his message, perished by the continuous drinking of “bitter waters and death”. This was true also of the Jews.

The Truth of the message of the work of the cross caused the Blood of the Lamb of God to be poured out into their polluted rivers and fountains of messages, false messages.

This third church age ended with the Council of Nicaes. There was always a true and faithful people throughout the third church age, in each church age.

Today, we see a people who is faithful to hearing HIS Truth, that is spoken within us. Many, when we share what the trumpet has said to us, will not allow themselves to HEAR it, let alone believe it. They hold on to their “superstitions” of the past. Instead of listening, taking it to the Spirit, they leave us; some that have been our friends for years. Their rivers will become bitter to them in time. The waters that they have been living in, with all of its pollution, will grow old to them. And they will look at us, and see HIM and LIFE and JOY. Yes, the very Joy that He gave us for the sadness we endured while one after another, left us. But, remember, “the One like unto ….” is well into being seen. Amen.

PART SIXTEEN

SEPTEMBER 23, 2007

WE are looking at the fourth church age, in this part. In the way we are looking at the Book of Revelation, we are not looking at it in terms of years, but in terms of EXPERIENCE in our walk. Although, we will be looking at the ways of the church age, back in time, our attention will be on OUR EXPERIENCE.

Revelation 2:18-29  “And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write: These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like the brass. I know thy works, and charity and service, and faith and thy patience; and thy works: and the last to be more than the first.”

 (Let me say here; I wish that you would read my study titled, “Re-Happenings”. Although, each of these churches HAD A PARTICULAR time, in history; we can see a RE-HAPPENING that has and is taking place in our walk; our experiences, throughout our walk. I think that reading that study would help you to see what I am saying about all of these “church age experience”. In this sharing, we are looking at the happenings in these church ages, we are looking at what we have experienced, walked out of, and grown spiritually. MUCH of our beliefs, truths that we hold, today, have changed dramatically over the last ten years.)

The “feet of brass,” we saw, was what that “one like unto” went through. WE have walked that “hot” path, ourselves. Please remember, when I talk about “judgment”, I am not talking about God’s wrath being upon us, or our “judging another”. We are talking about “correcting that which is incorrect”. That’s all. We have to lose this thought of “judgment” being a cruel punishment from HIM. We are/have been, simply correcting what was incorrect. And we will continue to do this, until; His finished work is manifested in and through us.

And as we look at these church ages, we must remember that there has always been a remnant that did not forsake Him and His ways.

If you noticed, the angel of this church age, spoke of “I know thy works...” two times. (vs. 19) This would tell me that there were TWO kinds of works being done in this church. And there was a promise of God for each of these works.

The Thyatira church age really rose into much worldliness. What is worldliness? The world consists of the earthly plane, or the carnal, flashily, SELF WILLED realm of HUMANISM. Worldliness is being led by these mentioned things. It is the motivation of the heart of a matter, than what we have been taught; it is more than how to dress; when and how to act; actually it is as we read in Isaiah, about the seven women taking hold of one man. It is the desire to be called by HIS NAME, but, insisting on eating our own food; (eat whatever word that WE choose, instead of following the leading of the Spirit and using discernment) wearing our own apparel; (having a life style that suited us and covering up that lifestyle with religious scripture that excuses all of our acts); it is what is in our heart, our intentions that is the difference between worldliness, and the nature of God. “Out of the heart, the mouth speaks”. Godliness has to do with the intentions of our heart; and the same is true of worldliness. If our intentions are to be all that He says we are, and to show forth ONLY HIM, this is Godliness; while if the intention of our heart is to live, talk and be whatever pleases the flesh, that is what is in our heart, and the mouth speaks.

The promise of the Lord unto this fourth church age was, that at the end of that church age, there would be ushered in a more wonderful thing, than at the beginning of that age.

The judgment against this age was because: “Thou allowed or suffered that “woman Jezebel” (the false church system) which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach”

The teachings the Spirit should be from the Spirit, not from the council of man. The True “church” of God should never be subdued or harassed into accepting false doctrines of man. Like so many try to do, by telling us “you should not read this or that”, “you should not listen to this one or that one”, and if you do you are falling into carnality. The Spirit will speak through ANYONE it chooses to; and through any book, article or written work of anyone. You see, this is DICTATION! This does not allow for DISCERNMENT IN US to be applied. We are to follow the Spirit, not the dictation of men. When man teaches, “there are no opposites in God, and all things are pure, then turns right around and says, “don’t read that, it is the opposite of God and it is unclean”; now which is it? I will tell you this from my own experience, we can read or listen to, or visit ANYTHING we want, and the Spirit will let us know, if this or that doesn’t help my growth and we will grow weary of the reading or listening to, or the visiting that we are giving our attention to. DEPENDANCE!! ONLY ON THE BEING THAT WE ARE can manifest itself.

John head, being spoken about the leaders of that fourth church age, “you allow her, this church, to subdue my servants.”

Our love for Him and His Truth should never be divided or shared. Our love and our commitment can only be to HIM; not our denominations; what our friends want us to do and be; and to our leaders. ONLY TO HIM. For IF our love and commitment is to Him, we cannot help but to love all; not their demands or actions, but the person that we KNOW Who they are.

Many of the denominations today, are the outgrowth of or religious politics; creeds and doctrines and many times, a leader who thinks only he/she knows it all. Sad! John heard this church being told, “She (the church) causes many to eat things sacrificed unto idols”, and who are the idols, the men that we hold in such high esteem, that we cannot hear for ourselves.

God gave these false teachers and the fourth church age system of man a time for repentance, but they would not hear the True Word of God. History records the horrors of those “Dark Ages”. We can read about the horrors all through the OT.

But, God also predestined an end to the false church systems of Jezebel and all of her “daughters”. He promised deliverance and victory for the remnant who left the doctrines of Jezebel.

 

The fourth seal was opened.

Revelation 6:7-8, “And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, “Come and see”. And I beheld, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”

I can see a beautiful picture in this word.

When we see “death” in the Spirit, it is not always the way the natural thinking, sees death. Death with the sword speaks to me of an UNDERSTANDING coming forth from HIS TRUE WORD. And HUNGER, doesn’t mean that people couldn’t eat. Hunger speaks to me of that DESIRE that cannot be quenched, and the WANTING of more and more of HIM!! Death and hunger brings forth the leaving of the old beliefs we’ve had and the RISING and SEEING OF HIM.

This fourth seal, I see as GRACE and MERCY upon a people whose mind had become so covered with the “dust of the earth”, but these people are sweeping the lies that we have made our refuse in, away!!

Oh folks, can’t you see that this Book of Revelation is not a book to be feared, but is such a promising look at what is NOW being seeing in, through, and as us, HIM!! “the ONE LIKE UNTO.”

Yes, conditions of this fourth church age led the world into a great age of darkness, cruelty to those believers who remained true. Many of the true followers of God was condemned, condemned even to torture, killed and destruction. Many were called heretics. Does this sound familiar?

In this age, the Roman Terrorism engulfed about one-fourth of all the earth as it reached its ungodliness to all world. They tried to destroy everyone who would not submit to their ungodly lies and lives. BUT, God set a limit to the Jezebel, Great Harlot, the Great Whore system. He said: “The gates of hell could not prevail against nor destroy the True Church “ We are what He promised; a church triumphant, a glorious church without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, HOLY, WITHOUT BLEMISH!! (Eph 5:27) Praise Him, Praise Him!! A “church” clothed in full divine authority, full of love, honest and true, AS HE IS…..SO ARE WE.

Because we are getting closer to SEEING, really SEEING our real Being, the next three church ages, will take longer space to share things about.

In the next part, we will finish up with the fourth trumpet and the fourth vial. This sharing excites me.

PART SEVENTEEN

SEPTEMBER 26, 2007

We will be looking at the fourth trumpet and the fourth vial, in this part. Again, it is the fourth angel who is sounding the trumpet and pouring out the fourth vial.

Revelation 8:12-13 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voice of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound.”

The sounding of the trumpet to this fourth church age, the Thyatira church age, was sounding th purposes of God for this fourth church age. To all that refused to accept the Christ, HIS TRUE PERSON, His Truth, His Spirit and authority, a spiritual death became their end.

What John saw was this: the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars are smitten. These things symbolize the Full Apostolic and Authoritative ministry of the Lord. This church age HAD all the glory of the Lord’s ministry. As this True ministry was rejected and substitutions were put in their place, darkness showed up. Approximately one third of all the “believers” were affected by this curse of darkness.

The Sun represents the LIGHT AND GLORY of the Lord that shone in that age. The Moon symbolizes the Church. As the natural moon has no light of itself, but just reflects the light of the Sun, so also the True Church of the Lord has no light or life in itself. It must reflect and show forth the light and the life that God is living through and as us. The Stars represent the brethren or the ministries of the church. They were set in the church; Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, Teachers and each star (or ministry) differed from another star.

1Cor. 15:41  “There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differeth from another star in glory.

NOW, what the trumpet has made SOME of us know, is that each of us ARE the Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers. Does not John 1:16, tell us that WE HAVE ALL RECEIVED HIS FULLNESS? We need to chase around no prophet to hear what God is speaking. We need only to COME UP HITHER, into the realm of the Spirit to lean whatever it is that we are to learn. Yes, sadly, there are those who will drive 500 miles just to hear a prophet, and PRAY that he will give them a Word from the Lord. Haven’t we all seen this? Maybe even DONE it ourselves, UNTIL the trumpet sounded with us. Get ready folks, WE are now the trumpet to many.

Where many are still waiting for the Lord to come, WE KNOW HE IS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN HERE!! He went no where. He patiently waited for our awakening; and is still waiting on the whole world. There will be MANY who will say we are crazy, or religious fanatics; but SO WHAT!!! Look at the Pattern; did that exact thing happen with Him? The tribulation is not the tribulation that the church has taught us we would have. Some will go through the tribulation of death, betrayal, harm; but our tribulation is HOW WILL WE REACT to the way we are treated? Will we stand up and stand for what is being revealed to us today? Of course, we will. Some won’t, but, in time we will ALL know the same Truth of Who we are.

During the Dark Age the Sun was smitten, or in terms that we understand, the Glory of the Lord was lifted from the corruption of that age. And the antichrist systems, the Great Whore, systems of humanistic, self willed church systems changed the Glory of God into a lie.

Read Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass (after these days)…will I pour out My Spirit upon all flesh.”

This was the age of the “Great Falling Away”, and NOW we see a body of people “Falling Away” from the Great Whore!! Hallelujah!! This falling away brought the warnings of upon the whole, flesh, self willed, carnal world church system that has failed to hear the Voice of the Holy Spirit. THIS WAS THE TRUMPET SPEAKING TO THAT AGE.

Revelation 16:8-9 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun: and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues and they repented not to give him glory.”

I think that after all we have seen, so far, this needs no explanation, I think you can all see what the scorching was: OUR GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE!!

John saw this dark age of the church in another symbolic way. He saw God’s glory as it became “as scorching Sun” and judgment of the Holy Ghost Fire upon all who would not repent of their evil in that age. And as always, even though the Glory of the Lord was lifted from many, there was and always will be a remnant of true and faithful people following that Wonderful Voice into manifesting HIM.

Those who did not hear chose rather to blaspheme the Name of God. Do you know what it really is to blaspheme His Name? It is holding to ANYTHING that is not HIM AND HIS TRUTH!! The whoredom of the church was clinging to any word, or act contrary to God and His Word and Nature, for GAIN!!

So the wrath poured out on this age was the Spirit “burning” people. I want to give you a scripture that shows us, God has no more wrath that will be poured on us, today.

1Thes. 5:6-9 “Therefore let us not sleep as others do (and we’re not. We are awakening!!!) but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep, sleep in the night (ignorance of Truth) and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. (a drunk is CONTROLLED by what he drinks). But let us, who are of the day (LIGHT, UNDERSTANDING) be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith, and love and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.” This salvation is COMPLETE salvation of Spirit, Soul and body!! We have all this, just by knowing our True Identity!! Hallelujah!! WE have and are His fullness. Amen.

So the next part we will look at the fifth church age. Again, I want to ask, can’t we see that ALL of this so far, has been fulfilled.

PART EIGHTEEN

SEPTEMBER 28, 2007

Today we are going to be looking at the fifth church age. What we must see in these church ages is; (1) they are of the past, (2) they hold a spiritual meaning to us. We have or will go through each age, at a time in our walk in and as God. Some haven’t even begun this walk yet; but they will and they, like each of us, must follow the Pattern that was laid for us, all.

This fifth church age, the church of Sardis, made its entrance at a very weakened time of the church age: weakened by the gross apostacism of the fourth church age, the church of Thyatira. Jeremiah 33:25 tells us: “IF the Lord’s covenant had not been with day and night, the true church would have perished.” We know that WE are the True Church, so this shows us that even today, these church ages, although they were in the past, are still a part of the Plan that we must walk through and overcome. Overcome, by realizing our True Identity. Is someone accepted Jesus, today, these same church ages will be experienced by them. And one by one they will overcome.

Now, with the words from Jeremiah, we see what God has promised us. In Matt.16:8, He said; “…the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” And in Rev.3:4, John said that there remained the faithful remnant that did not defile their garments. The Holy Spirit caused a message, a blast of the trumpet that FULL RESTORATION and HOLLY GHOST SALVATION, was to be understood by us. Now, back in our earlier days of our walk, Full Restoration meant something different, to us, that what it means to us today. Today we have had rise up within us, the TRUE meaning of Full Restoration. Today, the Full Restoration, we KNOW is the restoring of our mind, to come to remembrance of Who and What we truly are. Today, the Restoration is not to a church; it is to God Himself. He is rising and being seen, in the VISIBLE realm.

The fifth seal is opened, by the Lambkin.

Revelation 6:9-11 “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: and they cried with a loud voice, saying, How LONG, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them: and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also, and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.”

Boy, there is so much here. First of all, did you notice where these souls were at? They were UNDER the altar. They have not come into the realization of there True Identity. The “resting” that is spoken of here, is the understanding that they ARE receiving, right now, along with us. Remember what Hebrews 11:40 tells us; “…THEY (those who have passed over) WITHOUT US cannot come into perfection (completion).

And when they are crying out, “HOW LONG? LORD”, brings to my mind the translation that says, “They stand on tippytoes cheering us on.” This should be SO MUCH encouragement for us to remain true to our BEING. WE will raise the “dead”; WE will bring them back to a glorified body. They are our other parts that make up His Body; His Truths; His Being. And they were “given white robes”. This robe isn’t a material covering of them; it is HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS RISING UP IN THEM.

The “fellow servants that should be killed” is not the “death” that comes to the carnal thinking. IT IS US, dieing daily, moment by moment to the lie we have been living. That killing is our AWAKENING and BEING. Oh folks, this just gets better, as we go along. You can see, what we’ve looked at so far, that this Book of Revelation is NOT A BOOK OF FEAR, but instead is the “ROADMAP” that brings us to the end of this process. WE ARE THERE!! And those who are faithful to move on as HIM, are manifesting HIM, as we speak. Hallelujah!!

The fifth Trumpet sounds.

This part of our sharing is going to include much more than the other parts. There is so much that comes into play with this fifth church age; so please bear with me.

Revelation 9:1-12 And the fifth angel sounded and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree: but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented for five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails; and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is A-baddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. One woe is past; and behold, there come two woes more hereafter.”

John watched these reformation ministries, and saw that many of them were continually compromising the Truths in the system of religious organizations. And we see the same thing, still today. Now, the way John saw and wrote, as he understood, he envisioned these “fallen ministries” as “a star” falling from the realm of the heavenlies into the earthly or carnal realm of religious politics. (Remember “a star” represents the “angel” of the church, or the one doing the teaching.) The true church has only one purpose, and that is to exalt and bring into manifestation, the Kingdom of God.

In the day of Martin Luther, he had a great revelation of truth; “the just shall live by faith”. In that time period people who were being led by the Spirit taught and preached new dimensions of fresh revelations and revealed Bible truths. These men of God brought the people everywhere into new spiritual levels of revealed truth of the Word of God. And of course, these met resistance, by men who, with their carnal religious leaders, and they sought to pervert the Truth of God, and change His Truth into lies (which they did a good job of, in my opinion.) And they began to prevent believers from accepting more revealed truth beyond their religious domains. Different denominations were established and those denominations exalts the denomination, instead of exalting the Kingdom of God. And John saw all this, as “a star” falling from the Spiritual Truth realm, to the fleshly carnal realm.

The bottomless pit. Many mistakenly confuse the bottomless pit with outer darkness, or hell or the lake of fire. These are NOT all the same. They are different and have their place relevant to the truth of the scripture. Right now, we are looking at the bottomless pit.

Many teach that those in the bottomless pit are in base nature of mankind. And they spiral downward, and it is bottomless and in those lower “regions”, there is no deliverance. This is where they teach that there is nothing but ultimate destruction. Folks, we all KNOW that God will lose NO ONE!! In fact, they are already forgiven. But, back then they did not know all that we know today. To me, I see the bottomless pit, as the place where doctrine has no foundation to stand on. Each doctrine, not given by Spirit, sinks, it cannot stand.

This church age got so caught up in “denominationalism” that they were led by it. (We know all about this). They were not led by the Spirit. Out of the smoke or out of the humanistic “take over” of ever reformation revival move of God, came the plague of Locusts.

THE PLAGUE OF LOCUSTS

Actually, we can see so much of what this means. The Locusts symbolize all the various “Protestant Denominations”. John saw them as battling horses!! (Remember, horse represent, strength. There is both, human strength and spiritual strength.) The battling horses symbolize the powerful human strength of the religious political denominations that arose during the Reformation. They all have their own “crowns”. They establish and exalt their denomination even above the Word of God. Even today, there are those who exalt “their” understandings above God’s Truth. There is only ONE that is crowned; all other crowns must be cast down at His feet.

They have or allowed strength and power to become as scorpions of the earth with a sting of torment. They are as a plague or curse in the earth; BUT, they cannot kill the REAL moves of God. They only torment. They spend more time fighting each other, than bringing forth the Kingdom of God. They are CONTROLLED by the councils of men and not led by the Spirit of God. This is shown as the faces of men that John saw. As carnal men they express themselves as the church and try to show the characteristics of the woman (the False Church) by the vision of the long hair. HAIR represents a “covering”. Their covering should be God. An example of this “covering” is seen in the Garden. Remember when Adam and Eve put on “leaves” to hide their nakedness? It is something that covers what is not wanted to be seen, by others.

Their teeth are like the teeth of lions, biting and devouring each other. They have a “king” over them. That king is their denomination and religious headquarters and councils of men. Did you know that many of the churches have what is called “canned sermons”. The church can purchase a whole year of sermons; memorize it; put a little of their personality into it, and preach it as the Word of God!! Their power is limited, as we see what John saw. “Thou shall not hurt the grass (people) of the earth”, neither any tree (people). You can only hurt those that have not the Seal of God in their foreheads.” (as we saw, the seal of God is the Holy Spirit.

Ok, now we are really going to see just where we are in the Plan of God. A month equals one cycle of the moon, which is symbolic of the church, so these are the “5 cycles” that the church must pass through, or 5 messages that MUST be declared before the end of the Church Age. The power of denominationalism will last through the last 5 cycles of the Church Age. These are those messages:

1) Repentance from dead works and faith in God.

2) Doctrines of baptisms and of laying on of hands.

3) Holiness doctrines.

4) The Holy Ghost Revivals

5) Resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment.

(Please read these scriptures for yourself; Heb. 6:1-3, Joel 2:28-29, Acts 2:17,18, 39, and 2Cor. 7:1, Eph: 4: 24)

These “5 church months” happen during the fifth, sixth and seventh church ages.

THE THREE WOES

The continued efforts of carnal political religious leaders to denominate the reformation, restoration revivals ended in John declaring it as THE FIRST WOE. (Rev. 9:12)

John declares that there are Three Great Woes during the reviving and restoration of the Church to its final place of ETERNAL GLORY. (Remember WHO the Church is).

Revelation 8:13 “And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, WOE, WOE, WOE to the inhibiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound.”

These three great WOES described in the above verse are divine warnings to all the inhabitants of the earth. Be sure to THINK of earth, as US. They are “satanic” in their origin. (We KNOW who or rather WHAT Satan was, so I won’t go through explaining “Satan”.)

Revelation 12: 9-12 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent CALLED the devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation and strength and the Kingdom of our God, ant the power of HIS CHRIST; for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And THEY overcame him by the blood of the Lambkin and by the word of their testimony: and they loved not their own lives unto the death.”

I wasn’t going into “Satan” but I feel it is needed. So many, TODAY, are fighting the devil or Satan, STILL. The “accuser” is the carnal mind, whether it is in our mind doing the condemning, or whether it is in our brethren accusing us. “Demons” are the FRUIT of the Accuser. And this we must know and allow to be witnessed to us, by the Spirit that we are. In the day of Jesus, there were demons; in the original writing of the bible, the word “Satan” was not used. Instead, it was the word “adversary”. We all know that the adversary IS THE CARNAL MIND. And look at what we are told about, “this ole serpent, the devil”: (the carnal mind)

Hebrew 2:14-15 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he himself (Jesus) likewise took part of the same: that through death (one the cross) might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil. And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage (of death). “

Looking at these scriptures, can you see that they ARE fulfilled? The great dragon WAS cast out; that old serpent CALLED the devil or Satan… And yet even today the leaders of the church deny what was done on the cross.

These “five church months” happen during the fifth, sixth and seventh church ages.

In the next part we will look at these three woes, and will see what they mean to us, today.

PART NINETEEN

Revelation 8:13 “And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, WOE, WOE, WOE to the inhibiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound.” 

We are not going to spend a lot of time on the three woes, because they are all pretty much the same. Which was MAN taking what God intended for the restoration of the church, and turning it into a MANMADE practice. Even though this was seen all through the church ages, it is still being practiced today.

The three woes were/are man’s efforts to incorporate and denominationalize the church. They (men) have separated them into religious parcels and away from the true intention of God; which is to make ALL ONE! God never intended that carnal men should form religious systems of any of His revelations or outpouring to make all one. Earthly and carnal religious denominations were the cause of the warnings that God saw and heard, and it was the first woe.

The revealed truths of God should have been and should now be to joined together all believers into greater spiritual planes or levels in Christ. Instead the denominationalizing has divided and set brother against brother, rather than joining us together.

Eph. 1:10 “That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth: even in Him.”

Jude 1:11 “Woe unto them! (the inhabitants of the earth) for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.”

Now, we see that this woe is past.

Revelation 9:12 “One woe is past; and behold, there come two woes more hereafter.”

The second woe came in the Philadelphia Church Age, in the 1900’s, when the visitations of God, through the outpouring of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit was in such a dimension that was not seen since the Apostolic Days, or the Days of Pentecost, that we read about in the Book of Acts. People from all denominations were receiving the Baptism and revival was breaking out everywhere.

And AGAIN, there rose up among the Pentecostals religious leaders with great ambitions. They established so many “institutions”, organizations, and movements. Many believers fell into the same ole denominational traps, as did their predecessors of the Reformation Age.

They brought the “spirit” of Babylon into a divine move of God. The Charismatic move was not intended to bring forth more denominations; it was intended to be a heavenly experience for all people, regardless of their denomination. The prophecy for this age was: Joel 2:28, “I will pour out of my Spirit on all flesh.”

This was the second woe. Believers began to follow after Pentecostal and Tongue Denominations, rather than follow after Christ.

Revelation 11:14 The second woe is past and behold, the third woe cometh quickly.”

This third woe is exactly the same as the first two woes. MAN! Man interfering with God’s work. It is still going on today, BUT, WE SEE A LIGHT from the midst of US!! The final victory over all of these woes does not come until Babylon and all her daughters (the church system) are fallen, according to scriptures. We see in Revelation 19 the final and full victory proclaimed:

Revelation 19:1-6 “And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia, Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the Lord our God. (keep in mind, the ONE we saw in Rev. 1:13, the One like unto“); for true and righteous are his judgments; for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of this servants at her hand. And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose upe for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen: Alleluia. And a voice came out of the throne, saying Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia; for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.”

The time and place of the third woe is with the sounding of the seventh trumpet. The warning of God is the same as it was to the first two woes, “MAN GET OUT OF MY BUSINESS!!” As we look at the seventh church, we will see such glorious encouragement. His True Church, US, comes forth without spot or wrinkle. I am anxious to get finished with these church ages, because then we see HIM IN ACTION, AS US. It is wonderful. The unvealing is awesome. Many are NOW walking in the things that the church system has put off until we “die and go to heaven”. BUT, WE ARE EXPERIENCING HEAVEN NOW!!

In the next part, we will look at the fifth vial poured out and the sixth seal being opened.

PART TWENTY

The fifth vial is poured out.

Revelation 16:10-11 “And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain. And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

The fifth vial was poured out, upon the very seat of authority and dominion of the beastly rule of head of the system, and its kingdom was full of darkness. John describes all the false religion and false doctrines and the false worship as, “an outer darkness.” Outer darkness is not hell. Outer darkness is spiritual darkness that leads away from His true Spiritual Light of the World. (and WHO are we told is the Light of the World? WE ARE.) This spiritual darkness is what is referred to as “weeping and gnashing of teeth”. The children of the kingdom shall be cast into out darkness. This is the parable that Jesus spoke of in Matthew 22.

MT 22:13  “Then the king said to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

Hand, speaks of ministry. Foot speaks of the spiritual walk. With both bound, there is no moving in the Spirit, there is just stumbling around in darkness of the earthly realm. Oh yes, they put on a good show, but, after a while the people begin to feel the “deadness” of that system that they are bound by. But, glory be to I AM, the binding is starting to be removed.

The blaspheming that is spoken of in this scripture was the people’s complete rejection of His True Leadership. There has been, always, a substituting of the Holy Spirit leadership with the carnal religious system. It is like a festered sore. It keeps oozing with pollution. This brings to my mind, leprosy. I guess because I am so intertwined with the lepers of Africa. (Not that their disease is a punishment of God, please understand this.) But, the leprosy has been running amuck in the church system. Even when Jesus said to “bind them hand and foot”, leprosy came to mind immediately. And it is a painful disease; a pitiful disease, and a heartbreaking disease. WE NEED TO SPEAK TO THE SYSTEM; WE NEED TO CALL FORTH THE TRUE LEADERSHIP OF THE CHURCH.

Even in pain of disobedience, this church age refused to repent and they gnawed their tongues. Which speaks of not being able to talk; to speak truth. To me, this would be hell.

A bright spot in all of this is that there is always a remnant. In this church age that remnant was there.

Revelation 3:4 “Thou hast a few names even in Sardis that have not defiled their garments, and they shall walk with me in white; for they are worthy.”

So be encouraged, all of you who are going through the persecution from your brethren. For those of you who I AM has called out of the system. Be encouraged indeed, for you are the remnant, who will walk into Truth of Who and What you are. As this process of His manifestation is completely seen in this earthly realm, who will lead the world to THEIR TRUE IDENTITY. And as you will see, this process is almost finished. Just as HIS WORK is finished. Remembrance will return completely to us/in fact it IS RETURNING TO US; KEEP THE LOVE for those who point fingers now, and make remarks of “how crazy” you are, because they NEED LOVE.

The outpouring of the Holy Ghost brought in the sixth church age. It was a time of an opened door, a new entrance into the wonderful great reveling that started to come forth.

Are you seeing how YOU have walked through these “church ages,” yourself? Even though they are taught as long, long ago, we are seeing that WE walked through these happenings and we LEARNED from them. You see, this Book of Revelation is NOT a book to be feared. To me, it is one of the most encouraging books in the bible. We see in this Book of Revelation, correction, and learning and BEING. It opens up to us “remembrances” of where we came from, not only in our spiritual walk, here on earth, but where we came from since before the foundation of the world.

To me, it is taking the “LIMITATION” that the religious system placed on us. NOW we are finding out, the ONLY THING THAT CAN LIMIT US IS OUR BELIEFS! That’s it in a nut shell. I don’t give two hoots or a holler about what people think about my beliefs, you know why? I am finding out, that they are not beliefs at all, they are TRUTH; THEY ARE ME!! Hallelujah!!

PART TWENTY-ONE

The sixth church age came.

Revelation 3:7-13 “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth: and shutteth, and no man openeth: I know they works: behold I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it; for thou hast a little strength and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold I will make them of the synagogue of Satan which say they are Jews and are not, but do lie; behold, I will mke them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold I come quickly hold that fast which thou hast that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out; and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hat an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”

The Philadelphia church age is associated with the parable of MT. 13:45-46  “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls; Who when he had found one pearl of great price went and sold all that he had, and bought it.”

This was the church age of many great Spiritual awakenings, and yet something was missing. There were people, who in their heart was searching, and living with dedication to God. They remind me of us. They cried out for Spiritual awakening that came straight from the Spirit, not man. They got a taste of His Glory and wanted more, they wanted it all

The remnant that brought in this age was the remnant of a little strength that kept His Word and would not deny His name. Just as many are making fun of those of us who NOW know our name, “I AM”, it mattered not to that remnant, they did not deny His name or His nature. There were eight promises made to the remnant of this age:

1) I will keep thee from the hour of temptation.

2) Behold I come quickly.

3) Hold fast to that which thou hast, and no man shall steal thy crown.

4) Overcome, and I will make thee a pillar in the Temple of my God.

5) Thou shalt never depart from my Glory.

6) And the name of the city of my God, (which is Holy Jerusalem)

7) I will write upon him the name of my God.

8) And I will write upon him my new name.

What does the number, 8, represent? A NEW BEGINNING!!

The sixth seal is opened.

Revelation 6:12-17 “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake, and the un became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood. And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and then chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondsman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains: And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb. Fot the great day of his wrath is com; and who shall be able to stand?”

As soon as the sixth seal was opened, great earthquakes (human earthquakes) started happening. We saw this happen not too long ago. The preachers, brought down in shame. Lust. Greed. And vanity. It was all over the televisions. One brother testifying against another brother, so that that brother doing the testifying could then become the LEADER of the other brother’s church or business. Religion now, as it was then, was shaken to its core. Their actions were material gain and wealth showed the true enemies of the Truth of God.

Back in the day of the Church of the Philadelphia Age, those that refused to accept God’s truth for their day were actually given over to reprobate minds to believe a lie instead of the truth and came to the living of gross error.

The church, symbolized as the moon, (light reflected from the sun) was turned into blood as they, the false churches, joined forces to battle against the truth of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. Also, they began to bite and devour each other. The blessed and ordained ministries that had flourished during the Reformation as the “Stars of Heaven” fell. They “fell down” to the earthly realm of operating. They refused to follow on into the great spiritual outpouring of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost renewal. They refused the Baptism and the gifts that the Spirit would work in the church. This age became an age in which people either accepted the truth of the Holy Spirit message, or walked away from the divine Presence of God. They all tried to hide themselves in their dens of religious denominations; and in the rocks of their false religious dogmas. It was as though they cried and pleaded, “We have supported your denominational doctrines, now hide us from the Holy Ghost renewal. Keep us from the wrath of the Lamb as we fight against this truth.

We have seen all of this. Remember how one church would fight about if “speaking in tongues” was of the “devil or not? Remember if you spoke in tongues, they called you “of the devil”? And remember if you DID NOT speak in tongues, those in Pentecost accused you of not having the Spirit within you? Oh yes, as it has been, so it is again.

Eccl. 1:9-10 “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done; and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us.”

And the angel says, “for the great day of God’s wrath is coming.” “Where is the religious system of man that can stand up against the Lord and his Christ in this day of his great spiritual outpouring?” Let me tell you folks, THIS TIME, He is come!! And THIS TIME NO MAN CAN STAND AGAINST THE LORD AND HIS CHRIST, do you know why? BECAUSE THE “OUTPOURING, IS GOD HIMSELF!!! Hallelujah! He is being seen in and as us THIS TIME. Oh yes, it is a NEW THING for the earth to comprehend, and NO MAN can comprehend it, it takes BEING WHO WE ARE to see all this!!

The sixth trumpet

I am going to begin with the sixth trumpet, but this will be another lengthy part of this series. You will find that the closer we get to what LEADS US BACK, TO REV. 1:13 “one like unto…” much more will be revealed. But, it is exciting getting to the “end/beginning” of what is happening right now, this day of God, this glorious Being of Being Who we are. We are going to take this sixth trumpet, step by step, because there is a lot to look at. It is from Revelation 9:13-21, but there is much in each few verses.

Revelation 9:13-21 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God. Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand; and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breast plates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone; and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails; for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of the their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood; which neither can see, not hear, nor walk; Neither repented they of their murders, nor of sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thief’s.

John declares the Four Spiritual Voices OF THE LORD for the church age, as the FOUR HORNS of the Golden Altar. The four horns have a close connection with: The Four Winds of Heaven and Earth that is spoken of in Rev. 7:1, Zech. 2:5-7, and the Four Angels of the great river Euphrates of this chapter that we are looking at today. They are symbolic descriptions of the spiritual voices and manifestations of God. It is also symbolic language of God’s ability to communicate to us, His Power and His Glory, His Nature, His Salvation, His Deliverance, AND HIS ETERNAL HEAVENLY BENEFITS.

The symbolism of the word “Wind” shows the powerful operation of God’s Spirit. This wind of heaven is the means of quickening or reviving the heart of man toward God.

John 3:8 “The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound there of, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth; so is everyone that is born of the Spirit.”

This is another one of those scriptures that IF you sit and think, and focus on, SO MUCH ABOUT US can be seen!! By the effects of the Wind, man perceives that there is such a thing as the wind and that it does blow. Yet, man’s power cannot restrain it; and neither can his carnal reasoning reach to the heights of it, or to the length it reaches. This is the same as the spiritual operations of God Spirit (HIM). One thing EVERYONE should know about this Wind or Spirit, to get the work done that has already been finished by God, the Wind or Spirit flows freely where he desires, for whosoever he desires, when He desires, and in whatsoever measure He pleases to do so!!! This old stuff that the church has taught us about God doesn’t speak, act or anything with the “worldly or “unsaved” IS A BUNCH OF CRAP!! ALL ARE ONE IN HIM, some just don’t know it yet.

On the day of Pentecost, this Wind came “as of a rushing mighty Wind” (Act 2:1-4) When man was formed in Gen. 2, this Wind came as a blast into man. These are what I learned of these Winds as I grew:

1) The East Wind; It is God’s Revival Wind. The things of God are considered to come out of the East.

2) The North Wind; Is God’s Wind of Judgment (correcting what is incorrect) and Establishment.

3) The South Wind; Is gentle and helps groweth, it also gives warmth.

4) The West Wind; Is God’s Wind that brings the rain (both in the natural and the spiritual). The rain it brings is God’s Holy Rain. It was the West Wind that drove away the plague of locusts. (Ex. 10:19)

 

These Winds fulfill God’s commands. These Winds have a good as well as an adverse effect. Much can be said about the Winds, but, I want to get on with this chapter.

“Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month and a year, for to slay the third part of men.”

I am going to stop here today, and will start here tomorrow. I hope that this is showing you much, by the Spirit, that you are.

PART TWENTY-TWO

Revelation 9:13-14 “And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God. Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.”

God is and has been saying a lot to us, in this book that most feared and many still fear. But, not that God has unveiled this revelation of the book; it takes on a new focus (and how I love that word FOCUS), and we are seeing a new vision, a new understanding of it. And though we are gaining a lot of knowledge, God made it real clear to me that that is not what’s going to establish His Kingdom. He said, “it’s not What you know, it is WHO YOU KNOW”. It isn’t our knowledge; it is our relationship and the knowing of OURSELVES AS HIM. And I’ll tell you something, we cannot have a relationship with God, until we have had a relationship with each other, for ALL are ONE IN HIM. God says, “how can you say that you love Me, who you don’t see, when you can’t have a relationship with your brother, who you see everyday.” We have all seen the backstabbing that goes on amongst the preachers, when one writes something that the other hasn’t received, as of yet. Brethren that is not love; and what we do to one another, we do to Him. So knowledge won’t do it for us, it is KNOWING HIM that does it all. In fact, to Him, it is ALL already done.

He said that there would come a day, when people would say to Him, “Lord, Lord, haven’t I cast out devils; haven’t I prophesied in Your name; haven’t I written better, more spiritual articles; haven’t I traveled further, all for Your name; can’t I show how many people have received healing from MY ministry?” (My words) And He will say, “Depart from me because you never had a relationship with ME.” Knowledge is good, but it is the relationship that God is looking for. And I am seeing relationship, here in this book.

Now here in verse 13, it says “I heard A voice.” That should be ONE VOICE. It is very important that we understand that we heard ONE voice. Also, “from the FOUR horns”, although there are four horns on the golden altar which is before God, this should be, “the horns of the golden altar which is before God.” The word “horns” means “power”, in the Greek. So verse 13 should read “And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard one voice from the horns of the golden altar which are before God. If you have read my study on the Tabernacle of Moses, we know that there are four horns on this altar. We also know that in the Tabernacle of Moses that there are two altars. There’s the Brazen Altar which is in the outer court and there’s the Golden Altar, which is in the Holy Place.

There was one voice coming out of these horns. The number, four, represents universality or COMPLETION OF ALL THINGS. So we now know that this One Voice coming out of these four horns speaks of ONE VOICE COMING OUT OF ALL OF GOD’S people. Hallelujah!! That’s One Voice. And the word “from” in the Greek is “ek”, which means “out from within”. So it is One Voice, heard, out from within the horns. So what we are being told here, is that God is saying, “I am bringing you to a place where everybody will be saying the same thing.”

Now, how does everybody say the same thing? Everybody says the same thing, by SHUTTING THEIR MOUTH! And allow the Holy Spirit say what HE wants to say. Let’s look at Romans 8. This is a perfect example of what John saw at the Golden Altar.

Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities (King James made this plural, in the original it is INFIRMITY); for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: When it talks about OUR INFIRMITY, it is talking about the Body of Christ having an infirmity. One infirmity. And it goes on to tell us what the infirmity is; “for we know not what we should pray for”. This is the infirmity spoken of here. Unless HE is speaking, the prayer is not getting answered. That’s hard, but it is true. Now, here in Revelation 9, we are told, ONE VOICE out from within the horns of the Golden Altar. Now, here in the last part of verse 26, in Romans, it goes on to tell us “But the Spirit ITSELF (singular, ONE VOICE) maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” The Body of Christ has a great infirmity. Because every time someone gets up to pray, and that prayer is from that person, and NOT the Holy Spirit, IT DOES NOT REACH THE THRONE. Believe what you will, but, when you KNOW your true Identity, you allow the Holy Spirit to do any praying, because YOU ARE ONE WITH HIM!! If you don’t know your true Identity, as Paul said, “You are beating against the Wind”. What does “wind” mean, the Spirit. Christians get up and pray for prayer’s sake. And it does not mean a thing. We need to lose the religion folks.

“The Spirit helpeth..” Do you remember what I told you “eth” means? On any word. It means “continually” 4878 in Strongs: helpeth=sunaantilambanomai (Greek) suna means, together with. anti means facing, lambanomi means to take up as a burden. So what it is saying is; “The Holy Spirit comes together with us, facing the problems or situations, and takes up the burden, upon Himself. Now, when we didn’t know Who we really were, wasn’t this a wonderful thing to know? NOW, with the KNOWING of our Identity, WE ARE SPIRIT, right? How many Spirits are there? ONE. Knowing our BEING, we are to “come together and face (see that there is NOT PROBLEM!! There is no LACK!! But, for those who don’t know their Identity, come together with them, face their problem, and TAKE THE BURDEN UPON OURSELVES and SEE IT FINISHED!!!

So what John saw here, in chapter 9, is a manymembered Voice come together AS THE SPIRIT THAT THEY ARE and take control and DOMINION of problems and situations, AS HIM.

Intercession=5241 in Stong’s. hoperentugchanel, hoper means on behalf of, in, to hit the mark. The intercession sure isn’t for the Spirit!! It is on behalf of the world, and as long as He is making it, it NEVER misses the mark! So, He MUST (the Spirit) be the One who prays, every time. And this is the people that John saw in Revelation. This is that “One like unto...” Isn’t this wonderful? Can you figure out how this book ever scared us???

What John sees is the Golden Altar, not the Brazen Altar; because the Brazen Altar is a place of sacrifice, Calvary and our crucifixion. And we know that we cannot get to the Laver, or the Candlestick, or the Table of Shewbread unless we have been crucified here at the Brazen Altar. So in order to get to the Golden Altar, we MUST have been crucified, and we must be living and walking in a resurrected state of mind.

What you’ll find in the biggest difference in the two altars is that the Golden Altar was made of Acacia wood, overlaid with gold. In the Outer Court there is absolutely NO GOLD. In the Outer Court there was ONLY BRASS. And brass and brass means JUDGMENT. So what you find in the Outer Court is Judgment, and this is where most christians are today. And we HAD TO HAVE BEEN JUDGED BEFORE we got to the Holy Place. That judgment HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE and all need to come to KNOWING THIS.

Let’s look at the word “horns” for a minute.

Habakkuk 3:3 “God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise. And brightness was as the light; he had horns out of his hand; and there the hiding of his power.” (I left out the words that have been added.)

Ok, where is the hiding place of His power? In the horns. Where are the horns? In His hand. What are the hands? MINISTRY. So the horns are the hiding place of His power. Now, why did He use “hiding place”? Well first of all, when Jesus (God) came He was the horn of salvation. But, Jesus was still the power of His hiding place. Until His showing unto Israel. And now, Colossians tells us that OUR LIVES ARE HID IN HIM. We ARE the horns that are hid. Full of power. And John tells us, “Of His fullness HAVE WE ALL RECEIVED! Hello Horns!! And John says, “I saw the horns”. And John says “I saw the horns AT THE GOLDEN ALTAR!” John didn’t see the horns, (US) at the Candlestick, no, he saw them at the Golden Altar. Hallelujah!! Shout!! IN THE HOLY PLACE!!

What does it mean that John saw the horns in the Holy Place? Again look at the Tabernacle of Moses.

If you draw the Tabernacle, you will see what John saw. There’s the Ark of the Covenant. There’s the Table of Shewbread. The Altar of Incense and then you see the Candlestick. There’s the Laver. Then there’s the Brazen Altar. Now at the Brazen Altar, we see in our mind’s eye, Calvary. Now it that is Calvary, Jesus is at Calvary. Stretched out. Now, where is His heart? His heart is at the Altar of Incense. And John said, “I saw the horns at the Altar of Incense”. Remember the horns are us. John saw a people at God’s heart. This is what God is seeing, here in Revelation. A people after the heart of God. Walking INTO IT, BACK INTO IT.

2 Sam. 22:1-3 “And David spake unto the Lord the words of this song in the day that the Lord had DELIVERED HIM OUT OF THE HAND OF ALL HIS ENEMIES and out of the hand of SAUL. And he said The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my DELIVERER: The God of my rock; in him will I trust: is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my savior; thou savest me from violence.”

How many of David’s enemies did the Lord deliver him of? ALL. I hope you are seeing this in OUR DAY, IN US. Notice David said, “The Lord IS my rock”. Now look at what he says next. “The God OF my rock...” Can you hear this, it sounds like somebody is hidden in somebody, doesn’t it? He is the horn of our salvation, but, we are also the horn of his salvation. How? Because He said, “I will be perfected in the third day”. How is He perfected? THROUGH A PEOPLE!!!! What day are WE in? The third day!! WE ARE a joint of supply for Him and He is a joint of supply for us, because WE ARE ONE IN HIM!! Hallelujah!!

PS 92:10 “But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil”. The horn also speaks of the anointing. This is why WE ARE WHO WE ARE! Christ is God’s Life. Who is the Christ? We are. WE are His life right here on earth. He is seen through and as us and we are seen as Him. WE are the horn that the anointing flows through. This is how John heard ONE VOICE. That Voice is one, but a many memebered Voice.

PS 132:13  “For the Lord hath chosen Zion; HE HATH DESIRED IT FOR HIS HABITATION. THIS IS MY REST FOR EVER; HERE WILL I DWELL; FOR I HAVE DESIRED IT. Now skip down to verse 17. There will I make the horn of David to bud; I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.”

The horn is where God’s power is hidden. GOD IS RESTING. HE IS DOING NO MORE. WE ARE TO MANIFEST HIM. Can you see this? We are budding. Actually IT IS DONE, now it is on us.

Revelation 9:14 “Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.” WHO is saying to the sixth angel? The ONE VOICE coming out of the horn spoke to the angel. It wasn’t God who spoke to the angel this time. It is that body of people, “like unto the Son of man”. It is the fullness of God coming forth from those “like unto” that spoke to the angel. Because Euphrates (judgment) is mentioned, it shows that these people had removed the beam from their eye that removes the speck from the other people’s eye. This “one like unto” are seeing as God sees. How, they have come to know their true Identity!! AND it is the “one like unto” that is causing the judgment (correcting what is incorrect.)

And that One Voice said to the sixth angel, “Loose the four angels.” Loose them from where? “Loose the four angels which are bound upon (not in) the great river Euphrates.” That means it judgment was upon Babylon. Remember when the river was diverted by Darius? How do you think the river got diverted? By the four angels. God sent the angels to divert the river, even though Darius got the credit for it. The diversion of the river had a two part meaning; one was to bring judgment upon Babylon; the other was to bring judgment upon Jerusalem. Once the river had been diverted, then Babylon could get to Israel, and Israel could get to Babylon. Judgment was sent to Jerusalem to all that would not accept Jesus as the Christ; to those people who said He was the antichrist. These were the ones who crucified Jesus; and Paul; and all the horrible things that they did to the disciples. These are who is being spoken of here. John saw it as judgment falling upon Jerusalem. But, it means something different to us. The great tribulation has happened already. It took place in 70ad. Our tribulation and judgment happened on the cross. No more judgment for us. IF ONLY FOLKS WOULD REALIZE THIS. The debt was paid on the cross and we awakened as we resurrected. Some are still sleeping. Some are still judging and LOOKING FOR judgment to fall upon them every time they do something “wrong”. But, that is all FINISHED. And His manifestation cannot take place UNTIL all guilt, shame, and false believing leaves a person. That is when they wake up to their true Identity. That’s when the horn breaks loose from within them.

Revelation 9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.”

All this means is that they were prepared for an appointed time.

For to slay the third part of men.”

If you study this book out, from chapter 7 and onward, you’ll find a third part of men here; a fourth part of men, here; a fifth part of men there, etc. etc. Think about this, there are only 3 thirds in three thirds. If you kill three thirds of men, you have killed EVERY BODY. lol. He is not talking about men being “killed”, as physically dead.

The One Voice, the “one like unto…”, the Body of Christ who is walking in perfection, loosed the four angels. Listen, we need to understand some things. Do you know who loosed the heavens to rain and the fountains of water to break loose in the earth in Noah’s day? NOAH!! Noah loosed them. God said there is no other man in this generation as perfect as Noah. And all mankind was judged according to Noah. Study it out. Same with Sodom and Gomorrah. Who loosed the fire and brimstone? Abraham. People NOW it is OUR GENERATION. It is the same thing here in Revelation.

Your bible scholars will tell you that one third of MAN is dieing. And that guy on TV that has the whole bible memorized, boy he has it down pat that one third of MAN IS DIEING. But let’s see for ourselves.

ISA 66:15 “For behold the Lord will come with fire (who is the fire? Our God is a consuming fire. Who are we?)  and with his chariots (chariots speak of fire also, chariots of fire) like a whirlwind, (whirlwind speak speaks of His will being accomplished) to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For by this fire and by His sword will the Lord plead with all flesh; (didn’t He do this with Noah, with Sodom and Gomorrah?) When He came as Jesus, He did the same thing and the slain of the Lord shall be many. Who are the slain of the Lord? Look at the next sentence, they that sanctify themselves and purify themselves (NOW let me ask you one question while you got your bible out. DOES IT SAY THAT THE LORD IS GOING TO SANCTIFY US OR PURIFY US NOOO?!! We have to do it. How? BY REMEMBERING WHO WE ARE!! These are the SLAIN OF THE LORD. in the gardens (if you do a study on gardens, you’ll find your local church, hmmm) behind ONE TREE, what tree? The Tree of Life. IN THE MIDST, FOLKS THE TREE IS IN THE MIDST OF US> what were they doing before? Eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the Lord” So, you see when the Lord talks about slaying one third, it doesn’t mean He killed them, He APPREHENDED them. HE APPREHENDED US and aren’t we glad that He slain us?

Seeing that we are ONE in Him, we are ONE with the Holy Spirit. And when we allow the Spirit to speak, it is US that brings forth the fire that slains others. At the Brazen Altar we are sacrificed and given as a living sacrifice: and at the Golden Altar we come to the place, because of the sacrifice, we become one with Holy Spirit, and He speaks and He speaks only. So when we speak by the Holy Spirit, the words that we speak are the fire that issues out of our mouth and causes judgment to those who don’t want to hear. Even those who are dull of hearing, it burns up their dullness, so that they can hear. We become a joint of supply with each other, in each other, for each other, so that we can be the One Voice of the horns speaking from the Golden Altar.

Revelation 9:16 “And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand; and I heard the number of them.”

This number just speaks of an in numerable company of people.

Revelation 9:17 “And thus I saw the horses in the vision and then that sat on them, having breastplates of FIRE (out of our hearts shall flow fire). John had such a vision and this Euphrates River and river always speaks of water and water speaks of people and when rivers are connected with Euphrates it is talking about the judging of people. When fire is being spoken of it is talking about judgment. And this is a beautiful picture that John had, about judgment coming upon the earth. PLEASE bare in mind, judgment simply means “correcting what is incorrect”. And the beautiful thing is, is that we have to be able to see where we are in this thing. We are not in the midst of the judgment. We are producing the judgment. It is being found out where our foundation is. Is it in our job, or our family, or in our wealth, or is it in Him. And it is coming especially to this country. And like David said, thousands and ten thousands fall down all around me, but it doesn’t bother me a bit. If we don’t know, that judgment is coming THROUGH US, we will fall by it. We will be consumed by it. But, there is a people who are a Golden Altar people and they know Who they are, and nothing can touch them and they know that ALL THINGS are for the good of those who love God.

Revelation 9:18 “By these three (what three) in verse 17 fire, smoke and brimstone) was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouth.

The words that we speak are smoke. They come from the fire. Who’s the fire, God, the Holy Spirit? The brimstone is the encasement. So that when we speak those folks can’t get away. They are locked into what we say to them, whether they know it or not. Why? Because the Holy Spirit spoke through us/as us. All three issues out of our mouths.

19 explained already

20 “And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues, yet repented not ot the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk.”

This shows that God is not KILLING these people when it speaks of them being killed, but is apprehending them. Look at this, the rest who did not repent WERE NOT KILLED. We are a plague to them. That is why we speak only by the Sprit He will tell us who to speak to.

21 read 1 John, 2 John and 3 John and you’ll see what murders are.

PART TWENTY-THREE

Ok, we ended the last part with the sounding of the sixth trumpet. Now, we will look at the sixth vial being poured out.

Revelation 16:12-16 “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates, and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue, Armageddon.”

So far we have seen that God opens the door for a Holy Spirit message to come to each church age; this is symbolized as “the opening of the seals.” And God speaks and declares a truth to every church age; this is symbolized as “the sounding of the trumpets”. And God demands a reaction to these seals and trumpets. The only difference in NOW and back in the days of God’s wrath is that HE doesn’t pour His wrath out on us that is finished. BUT, WE BRING THINGS ON OURSELVES by believing or not believing His messages to us. The truth is, whatever happens within us, happens out of us.

We see that here, in the pouring out of this sixth vial, the Angel of the Lord is still speaking about the Great River Euphrates. (This is a spiritual river= “the bursting sweet rivers of divine life and His Holy anointing”; and this river began to dry up. The great spiritual flow of the spiritual drinking waters of the river of life began to dry. And the great Pentecostal Revival has become stagnated, and most refuse to leave that realm. But, as always, God had a remnant.

As most of us know, all of us have been through the dry period. Some fell away during this dry period, and some made their own doctrines. As I AM has been rising within us, we have been receiving and seeing just how dry things had gotten. There seemed to be no growth at all. But, THEN the waters started flowing within us. Some rejected those waters and some sought for truth in those waters. And then the truth of our Identity began flowing in some of us. Wasn’t it like water to a thirsty man?

The Kings of the East symbolizes the last great revival that comes to the earth during the seventh Church age that we are now in. This revival is unlike any we have experienced. The East is symbolic of the place (us) of God’s glory and blessings. Of His VERY BEING!! We can never be dry again. We have been awakened to the beautiful LOVE song of I AM. We became that LOVE song and now we are singing our song to the world. (as we discern who to sing to.)

Now, I want to say something about these “unclean spirits like frogs”. FIRST OF ALL we must realize that this is how JOHN was seeing this vision that he was having. He saw these “spirits” as Satanic, as demons and devils. And we must remember that like Daniel, Isaiah and the rest of the men of the OT, they did NOT understand what they were seeing. Remember Daniel being told, when he ask the meaning of the vision he saw? “It is not for YOU to know NOW.” Many will say that I am wrong about this, but think about it: IF those of the OT had known all that was going to happen, from the visions that they had seen, they would have already come into completion, or perfection. But, what does Hebrews tell us?

Hebrews 11: 38-40 “(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these ALL HAVING OBTAINED A GOOD REPORT THROUGH FAITH, RECEIVED NOT THE PROMISE; GOD HAVING FORSEEN SOME BETTER THING FOR US, AND THEY (those OT folks) WITHOUT US SHOULD NOT BE MADE PERFECT.”

It was the same for John. All that he saw, he did not understand. For example, WE know that the devil does not exist except in the minds of those who are not accepting what the written Word says about this.

Hebrews 2:14-15 Forasmuch then as the children ARE PARTAKERS OF FLESH AND BLOOD, he (Jesus) also himself likewise took part of the same: that through death he might DESTROY him that had the power of death, that is THE DEVIL. And DELIVER THEM WHO THROUGH FEAR OF DEATH WERE ALL THEIR LIFETIME SUBJECT TO BANDAGE.”

We can see by John’s own words that he still believed in the devil, demons and unclean spirits. But, WE are told:

Eph. 4:3-6 “Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. THERE IS ONE BODY, AND ONE SPIRIT, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling. ONE Lord, ONE faith, ONE baptism, ONE GOD and Father of all, who is above ALL, and through ALL, AND IN YOU ALL.”

Can you see all that these verses say? It is so clear. He is ALL IN ALL and that includes US!! Does this tell you Who you really are? It is glorious and every day it is becoming clearer and clearer to those who are HEARING that inner voice of THEMSELF!! So, we SEE that when Jesus went to the cross, the devil, the demons, the unclean spirits were destroyed. (I have always taught that when I come across the word “spirit”, in the scriptures, I replace it with the word, “attitude”. There are no spirits, ONLY ONE. The rest is all attitudes in the carnal mind.

Part of the “drying up” was people STILL believing the old wives tales, and not growing in HIS TRUTHS. But, this “drying up” was to prepare the coming forth of the Kings of the East. That is us folks, showing forth the full manifestation of I AM. The Kings of the East comes forth in the seventh church age, which we are now in. Hallelujah!!

All through scripture the East has been symbolic of a new beginning.

The light of God’s day (in the morning) is from the East. (Mt 24:27)

Jacob found his bride in the land of the people of the East. (Gen.29:1)

The star at Jesus’ birth was a star in the East. (MT 2:9)

The wise men at Jesus; birth were men of the East. MT 2:1, 11)

Our way IS PREPARED!!!

“He comes as a thief” HE APPEARS!! Which He is doing right now! How does a thief come? Does He gather a big crowd to watch him? No. Does He scream and shout, “here I come?” No. He comes quietly; softly; silently; AND SWIFTLY!! He is appearing right now through those who know their true Identity. THEY know, but the whole religious world doesn’t know. But, the whole religious world does and will feel HIS PRESENCE!!

In the next part we are going to look at Armageddon. It is NOTHING as we have been taught.

PART TWENTY-FOUR

SEPTEMBER 29, 2007

We are going to look, a little bit, at the Battle of Armageddon. Let me say right off the bat, The Battle of Armageddon is a spiritual battle. And it is taking place between the ears!! It is all in our mind. It is the battle of the mind of I AM and the natural mind. THE RENEWING OF THE MIND is what brought this battle to the point of our AWAKENING to the truth of our True Identity. It is NOT a battle that is going to take place in the natural; and an Anti-Christ is NOT going to appear from somewhere in the Middle East; and all of mankind will be slaughtered (in the way we THINK of “being slaughtered”. We have been going through the Battle of Armageddon for a while, and NOW we have the battle won; (as we keep our focus on our Identity). This battle HAS BEEN WON from the foundation of the world. And now, we are tired of “fighting” and we are resting from the battle.

I want to go over a little of what we have been taught, regarding this battle, and then show you in scriptures what has really taken place. So let us look at some scripture about what John saw, regarding the Battle of Armageddon.

We will be looking at quite a few scriptures, and then we will see them in light of PRESENT TRUTH.

Revelation 14:18-20 “And another angel came out from under the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.”

Revelation 16:16 “And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.”

Revelation 19:11-21 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and his name is called THE WORD OF GOD. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth; and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.”

Revelation 20:1-3 “And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years. And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.”

Many teachers (futurists and dispensationalists) have tried to show that Revelation 14:18-20, is the climatic and ultimate destruction of all mankind. This is supposedly to take place in a future world wide holocaust of human slaughter, called The Battle of Armageddon. They believe that this battle is to be fought in the valley of Megiddo, a valley located about 70 miles from Jerusalem, north of Jerusalem. It IS the scene of many battles in past history. Now for some really “FAR OUT IMAGINING”: many teachers teach that the armies of the EARTH will gather there and that they will be under the leadership of tow or three mortal men referred to as; the anti-christ, the beast and the false prophet. They teach that they will engage the in habitants of the earth in a battle to the death against the Lord and his armies of heaven.

Blood is suppose to flow in this valley (here they refer to Rev. 14:20) about 200 miles and about 6 feet deep. To literally do this, the total distance of 200 miles, it would have to include the whole valley of Megiddo from Mount Carmel on the Mediterranean Sea, along the Kishon river through the valley of Megiddo and the valley of Jazreel to the river Jordan, then through the plain of the river Jordan to and through the Dead Sea and onward through the valley of the wilderness of Zin and past Kadesh-barnea into the wilderness of Parna, into the Sinai Peninsula. WHEW!!!!! Saying all that, it is easy to see that to take the Revelation 14:20, and Revelation 16:16 literally, it is impossible. Because of the blood coagulation, in battle, very little blood flows at the time of death.

IF it were possible to get all of the people on the earth into the valley of Megiddo and then have someone cut their throats, hang them by their heels and drain all of their blood from their bodies, THERE STILL WOULD NOT BE ENOUGH BLOOD TO FILL THE VALLEY OF MEGIDDO AND THEN FLOW FOR 200 MILES, AT THE DEPTH OF SIX FEET!!!!! I don’t know HOW these people come up with all this crap!! Of course, it is the carnal mind, but even with the carnal mind doing the figuring, I don’t think the carnal mind is that stupid. (Excuse me, I do get a little carried away with some of this “scholarly thinking”. lol.

This whole thing about the Battle of Armageddon is SYMBOLIC!! I know you can see what some of the symbolism is, because of some of the things we have already talked about. Horses=strength or power, remember? But let’s go on.

The symbolism of “horses” are used to help reveal to us, how that before the seventh church age is completed, the total ruling STRENGTH of all carnal and fleshly systems of mankind is DESTROYED by those knowing their True Identity, “that one like unto…”. Look back in this study to the Opening of the first seal of the first church age (Rev 6:1). In the unveiling of this part of John’s vision, here again is the declaration of how complete the final victory of this last day’s “ministry” really is. It confirms the total destruction and overcoming of all of the fleshly realm and what it has done to the mind of mankind.

Zephaniah 3:8, “Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the Lord, UNTIL the day that I RISE UP (in us, UNTIL HIS IDENTITY IS SEEN IN US AND AS US) to the prey; for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger; for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.”

When I AM rises up, it is not a fight with human armament. The battle is not a war of earthly proportions; it is not a battle with guns, planes, bombs, ships and weapons of mankind. This is not a war of nation against nation, or kingdom against kingdom. This is not the war in the Middle East, as some are saying is here now. It is not a war in Jerusalem. THIS IS A SPIRITUAL BATTLE; IT IS THE BATTLE OF MIND AGAINST MIND; THE MIND OF I AM AND THE CARNAL RELIGEOUS MIND!! It is the battle of SEEING HIM IN ALL THINGS; the things that we look at, as the good, the bad and the ugly. And the battle is actually OVER!! We just have to walk into this truth and see it manifested in this realm.

In Revelation 19:17-18 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

An angel, standing in LIGHT, UNDERSTANDING talked to the “fowls that fly in the midst of heaven… where is “heaven? BETWEEN OUR EARS! “Gather YOURSELVES TOGETHER” Come into agreement in HIS WORD, TOGETHER, SPIRIT, SOUL, AND BODY; THIS is the true coming together!! These three ARE together IF we would see this as I AM sees it. HE sees it FINISHED! COMPLETED!! PERFECTED!! HE said, “it is good, it is very good.” This coming together is SEEING AS HE SEES. The fowls of the heaven (air) IS THOUGHTS. His thoughts eat up the flesh, (Light appears and HE is seen in darkness, or what we have called darkness.)

Revelation 14:20, “Blood came out of the winepress…” This is the final and total destruction of the carnal, fleshly realm, and what Christians refer to as the satanic realm. WE know that the devil has ALREADY BEEN DESTROYED (Heb 2:14-15); but most Christians are still fighting him. How? Why? Because of the fowls of the air, in their heavens. Hebrews 12 tells us “Everything that can be shaken will be shaken”. My precious loved one, WE are the fulfillment of this verse!! When it speaks of “slaughter”, it is not men, it is WHAT IS IN MEN, BEING REMOVED. Oh how the carnal mind fights against this. WE ALL KNOW THIS IS TRUE. We are STILL finding things of the system, trying to work itself up in us, from time to time. BUT WE ARE SEALED. HIS FINISHED WORK IS APPEARING IN THROUGH AND AS US AND US AS HIM! Hallelujah!!

WE are the sharp two-edged sword. We are the Word of God, coming out of HIS MOUTH. We are the fire that makes others uncomfortable width=’100%’, and we are also, the COMPASSION OF I AM.

Joel 3:16 tells us that HE shall roar OUT OF ZION, US, and every thing that is not of Him shall go down. HE overcomes mankind by the power of His Spirit. How many Spirits are there? ONE. Are we Spirit Beings? oh yes, HIS SPIRIT. The battle for the minds and wills of mankind IS won by HIM.

Romans 8:9, 11, “If that same Spirit that dwells in Christ (I AM’S LIFE) dwelleth in you, IT SHALL QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODY.” You see, the body follows either the Spirit or the soul that left her husband, which ever is the strongest. Up until now, the wayward soul has led us, but she is back together with her husband, the Spirit, and THE BODY HAS BEEN QUICKENED!! IF WE BELIEVE IT AND WALK IT IN BELIEF!!! Like ALL of HIS FINISHED WORK, we must walk into it, manifest it. This is the battle, what our mind believes!! Christiandom is WAITING for a literal battle to take place. As long as they believe this, they will see physical death. They will be those spoken of in Hebrews 11:40.

Philippians 2:5 “LET (allow, permit) THIS MIND be in you which was also in Christ Jesus…”

Zechariah 14:12 “Their flesh (carnality) shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, (we must REST in HIS TRUTH), and their (fleshly) eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their (fleshly) tongues shall consume away in their mouth (ONLY HE SPEAKS).” This is the end of all fleshly ways of MANkind. Mankind’s day is over. HUMANITY is consumed with the brightness of His coming, His appearing, HIS FINISHED WORK IS MANIFESTED!! Hallelujah!! Are you seeing as HE SEES? WE MUST. We are given the opportunity, and that is what it is, an honor and great opportunity, to allow HIM to manifest. Those who won’t will be broken, just as we have been.

Hebrews 12:25-29 “See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven. Whose voice shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also HEAVEN. AND THIS WORD, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that ARE shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain, (OUR TURE IDENTITY). Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved (His Kingdom is our Kingdom) let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. OUR GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE.” In this last verse, we are serving AS GOD and Him AS US, for we are ONE IN HIM.

The battle of Armageddon is finished. When our focus is on Who we ARE, and Who is us, there is no more battle!

I went an entirely different route than I had planned on taking in the explaining of the Battle of Armageddon, but it is I AM saying what HE wants said.

In the next part, we will finish up the church ages, the seventh church age. A lot of what was said in this part does and is telling of the seventh church age. But, so be it, amen.

PART TWENTY-FIVE

NOVEMBER 3, 2007

We have made it through the six church ages and how we have experienced these happenings. As I said, you can look at the seven church ages as a historical happening, which is true, but I wanted us to see how EACH of the ages were actually experiences that we have gone through and will go through, on our journey of awakening to our true Identity.

I have tried to show that this Book of Revelation IS NOT a book of fear; but is in fact, a wonderful encouraging book, for us. As we have seen, the way the church system has taught this book is so completely opposite of what the Spirit has been saying to us. They have taught that the book is about the END OF THE WORLD; bombs, demon men, and blah, blah, blah. In reality, it is about the END OF THE WORLD, AS WE HAVE KNOWN IT.

NOW, we are in the seventh church age. A wonderful glorious time on earth, where HE IS BEING SEEN. We are learning our true Identity and it has changed so much for us. Of course, there is still the denominational system coming against His Truth, but, NOTHING or NO ONE can stop the manifesting that is taking place today. And to me, it is so exciting, so wonderful, and so enlightening, to know Who and What I AM. So, let’s try to finish up this age, and move on to other things in this book.

Revelation 3:14-22 “And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God: I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot.

Now we, those who are coming into the knowing of their true Identity, can look at this scripture and say; “THIS IS ME!! ALL of these descriptions are describing ME!” WE ARE the Amen, (which means, SO BE IT). Do you know that there are thousands of Christians who pray, every day and end with “AMEN” and have no clue as to what that word means? “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot…” Haven’t we all seen this? Haven’t we all experienced this? Is not this one of the reasons we left the church system? It was either all programs, or a place to take a quick nap on Sunday morning. Most of all, IT WAS DEAD AND DRY! And do you know that there are people who read about this Present Day Truth, and are still in that dead place; paying their tithes to it; trying to see who can get closest to the pastor; blah, blah, blah. They don’t realize that what you “lay down with, you become one with”. But all will not come into this knowing of Who they really are, right now. God has ALWAYS had a remnant that He moved through and it is the remnant that He will manifest through, fully, today. And that remnant will bring the world to understanding, and the manifestation of His Kingdom.

Vs 16-17 So then because thou art luke warm, and neither cold not 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 are wretched, and miserable and poor and blind and naked.

We are told that our God is a jealous God. Our whole focus MUST be on Him. We must let nothing or no one distract us from His rising, within us. He has shown us that HIS WORK IS FINISHED. In the church age of Lacodiceans, they all failed to realize the eternal promise of the Lord to his true Church.

Revelation 3:8  “I have set (past tense) before thee an open door, and no man can shut it.”

God cried against the workers of iniquity, “Depart from me, I never knew you”. He HAS redeemed these back to Him already, they just don’t know it!!

Revelation 3:18  “I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

This word, “eyesalve” is from 2 definitions in Strong’s Concordance; #2853 and 2854:

#2854= a cake, a poultice, a plaster. This word “poultice” means, a soft warmed medicated mass applied on a cloth, applied to a sore or inflamed part of the body.

#2953= to glue, to stick, to cleave, join (self), keep company.

You see, to us, this salve is UNDERSTANDING and TRUE KNOWLEDGE. It is as if He applies a paste to our eyes that as we start to understand HIS TRUTH, it causes or brings forth a “gluing” to Him, a cleaving unto Him, and the FINALLY, A JOINING IN HIM!! Oh Hallelujah!! You see, when we allow our Spirit to teach us, it is easy to see the Truth of us being ONE IN HIM. HIM AS US AND US AS HIM. We KEEP company with Him, because He is us. It is HIS life that we are living, not this natural person known as Linda, or Sam, or Dianne, or Pam. It is ALL HIM. We are ALL HIS REFLECTION. The paste is being applied to the eyes, HERE IN THE STUDY OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION.

You see, what is happening inside of us, is what creates or manifests our outward being. So far, we have only seen what we believed was possible; but if we can get a grip on John 1:16, HE APPEARS!! The purpose of right thinking is to recognize the True Nature of our Being, in God; to recognize the unity of Spirit, Soul and Body, and to declare the perfection of God, right here on earth, as it is in heaven (the Spirit realm, a state of being). We become or manifest the good that is always at hand, through right thinking. A pattern of thought produces a like pattern in a person’s life. HE (as the flesh man Jesus) was our Pattern. And NOW WE ARE TO BE THE PATTERN TO THE WORLD!!

Revelation 3:20-21 “Behold” Remember what this word, “Behold” means? It means that we are about to be told something that we didn’t know before. And these words rose within me the other night, as I studied this; BE= is, present state. And “HOLD”= don’t let go, keep a grasp onto, hold it within and allow it to produce on the outside. That’s good, isn’t it? “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him; and will sup with him and he with me.

We have read this a thousand times and I don’t think we really understood what was really being said; The MIND is the DOOR to manifesting Him. “BE transformed by the renewing of the mind”. “If any man hear my voice and open the door…” Now listen, does this say that HE IS GOING TO OPEN OUR DOOR? No it doesn’t. All we have been taught is “wait, let Him do it”, that’s why we are where we are, we have been waiting on HIM to do everything, even though we were told, “of His FULLNESS have you all received“. WE have to open the door. We have to renew our mind. It is a full time job, that’s why our focus MUST be stayed on Him and what HE has told us. And look at the next part: “I will come IN to him.” He has always been in us and we have always been in Him. We are ONE. We cannot be separate from Him, EXCEPT IN OUR THINKING. We have to renew that thinking. It doesn’t matter what anyone says or does, our focus is NOT to be on what they are saying or doing. Before we can bring COMPLETE SALVATION (Spirit, soul and body) to anyone else WE have to work out YOUR OWN SALVATION”.

WE have been concerned with bringing everyone else to salvation, when that IS NOT OUR JOB RIGHT NOW!! Our job is to COMPLETE OUR OWN SALVATION and THEN we bring the world to the salvation of not only knowing ABOUT HIM, but KNOWING that they are ONE IN HIM!!!

And will sup with him and he with me.” We partake of each other and then realize WE ARE ONE AND THE SAME BEING!!

VS 21, “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with (in) me IN my throne. (His authority) THIS IS ALREADY FULFILLED!! Again, look at John 1:16. Can He lie? We have been using that authority, but without knowledge and understanding. That authority GOES BEHIND OUR WORDS, the words of our BELIEFS!! That’s how the world has gotten in the shape it is in. We didn’t truly believe that LIFE AND DEATH ARE IN THE POWER (authority) of our words.

“Even as I also overcame, and am set down with (IN) my Father IN his throne.” Does this scripture, NOW awaken you to all that you are, and not will be. IT IS FULFILLED. And we have been taught that we had to wait until we died and went to heaven!! Now it is TRUE NOW!! Some ears are tuned to hearing the flesh, but the remnant’s ear is HEARING what eh Spirit sayeth.

Seventh Seal.

Revelation 8:1 “And when he had opened the seveneth seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.”

Do you remember a couple of parts back, who we found was now opening the seal? It is US. Those who are “like unto the Son of man...”

Now this is the age where “FINISHED” is written. Finished what? Finished of all the fleshly, carnally minded, beastly, political, church religious systems of man made words CEASE!! This is the time of man’s voice being silenced. All will hear, Be still, and know that I AM GOD. (PSA 46:10, and “LET ALL FLESH BE SILENT...” Zec. 2:13. Many teach that verse 2 of Rev. 8, is a continuation to what was just said, but I see it differently. It is not a continuation of an event in verse 1 of chapter 8. The succession in the revelation does not necessarily mean that one part finishes and the next verse takes up at that point. Often the Spirit showed John on phase of the revelation; and then in essence said, “Now let me show you another phase of the same thing.” Or as though the Spirit said, “Let me put it this way.”

The vision of the seals finish and John now envisions the sounding of the seventh trumpet.

Revelation 11:15-19, “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world ARE become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign for ever and ever.” We must understand that the voices in heaven, or out from within the Spirit, are ALL IN ONE ACCORD, making them as ONE. “Out of our belly (the MOST inner part of us, HIM) shall come rivers of LIVING WATER.”

This is a MANY MEMBERED VOICE, and it is US who have manifested our True Being, HIM.

VS 16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats (all within us, RESTING IN HIM). and fell on upon their faces and worshiped God. Our face represents our reflection of Him. And our worship is not, singing, dancing and praising, no, our worship, our True worship IS SHOWING FORTH HIM. Our LIFE is our praise. Haven’t you ever watched a little boy try to act just like his dad? This is what we are, not acting, but BEING HIM and HIM BEING US.

VS 17 “Saying, we give thee thanks O Lord God Almighty. Now comes the great part of this enlightening. Remember back to the part where we learned Who THE LORD GOD is? It is the plural Elohim, us. In His image and likeness. He, Elohim did the creating and we did the forming.

Which art, and wast, and art to come:” We have NEVER changed from Who we were when we came out from within Him. The only thing that changed was our thinking, and listening to man instead of the True Voice. And “art to come”, come where? To come into the manifestation of Who we really are. Bless His Holy Name!!

VS 18 “And the nations were angry and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead that they should be judged and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints and them that fear thy name, small and great and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

To show you the difference in our knowledge and John’s knowledge, WE know that there is no wrath of God anymore. The debt was paid. He does not see us as anything other than He brought us forth as, out from within Him. John saw in the knowledge that he knew at that time. And we must remember, just because God gave John and Daniel and all them of the OT, visions of this day, does NOT mean that they understood what they were seeing. And all this was written and spoken in the way John talked. WE know that God IS NOT destroying anyone. And as for judgment, we must remember what judgment really is, to GOD; it is CORRECTING THAT WHICH IS INCORRECT. So we must allow old religious thinking come into play, of how this “judgment” is going to be or is, something terrible. Our God is a loving God. I am going to include in this series, The Great Tribulation, and know, that that was the last of God’s wrath. What comes upon us now, is from our own THINKING AND BELIEVING. IF you notice, in the Garden when Adam and Eve hid themselves from God, THIS is the picture (which WE have not understood; Adam and Eve saw that they were naked and hid from God. When God came calling, “Adam, where are you? Adam said, we were hiding because we are naked. And God said WHO TOLD YOU THAT YOU WERE NAKED?” You see, it was ADAM’S THINKING that made him afraid of God. This is the FIRST experience of shame and fear. And it came from Adam’s THINKING OR BELIEVING, AFTER he had partaken of the Tree of knowledge or good and evil. Since them WE have been living or should I say, dieing, from the same THINKING AND BELIEVING; UNTIL NOW!! We are awakened and see that we ARE NOT NAKED. WE ARE CLOTHED AS HIM!!

Jesus said to His disciples, “….rather rejoice, because YOUR NAMES ARE written in the heavenlies.” (Luke 10:20) Some have awakened to this fact. And are seeing themselves as ONE IN HIM.

The anger of the nations are stirred because their end has come. THIS IS THE TIME for their defeat. It is the time of the end of all flesh. The rewards? For those Who do know their God and their Idenity in Him, it is the day of victory. Our reward is the fullness of Him manifesting in and through a people. And that fullness shall destroy every hindrance that the flesh has presented in each life. As we manifest that fullness, there shall come a total submission of each individual’s “four and twenty elders”. All that is within shall come forth and IS COMING forth to be seen, as Him. He is flowing in and through each vessel as Holy Spirit power, authority and substance, HIS SUBSTANCE that we are made of.

This great from out within us, will cause:

1) Lightnings =the manifestations of the power of Him.

2) Voices= a many membered voice as ONE SPIRIT.

3) Thunderings= The personal divine utterance of God through each of His Reflections.

4) Earthquakes= the shaking of everything that can be shaken, so that the TRUE REALITY of HIM IS SEEN AND HEARD.

5) Great Hail= the pure, unpolluted Truth that shall release all from the lies of cursing and death.

And lastly, the seventh vial is poured out. Churchism thinks this is going to be a horrible time, but actually it is the very opposite. In fact, as you read the next scripture, think to yourself, “Oh my God!!! This is where I AM. It is ME, as Him, calling out and teaching, “IT IS DONE!!!”

Revelation 16:17-21, “And the SEVENTH ANGEL (US) poured out his vial INTO THE AIR, and there came a great voice OUT OF THE TEMPLE OF HEAVEN (Who is the temple?) FROM THE THRONE (Who is in the throne in Him? Who is FILLED WITH HIS AUTHORITY?) saying, IT IS DONE!” Glory, Glory to Elohim!! And look what it says next; and think, WE ARE NOW IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL!! And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings, and there was a great earthquake, SUCH AS WAS NOT SINCE MEN WERE UPON THE EARTH, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. Think, deep within your Being folks, what have WE been going through. Especially since we left MEN’s teachings and focused ONLY on what the Spirit has been saying. We have been shunned; laughed at; made fun of; HATED, yes HATED, by those who will not pull away from something that they are SO SICK OF, but will not leave it. We have been through a lot of shaking. And all that was inside of us, that had to come out of us, it was and has been like surgery without medicine to dull the pain, UNTIL we found the RIGHT DOCTOR!! WE have overcome the “prince of the power of the air.” And we MET Him in the air. We have moved out of this world created by the carnal mind and BACK IN THE WORLD WE STARTED IN, HIM.

And this great Voice of I AM IS PROCLAIMING, all in agreement, “IT IS DONE.”. Not only is this many membered Voice proclaiming it, it is LIVING IT!! As VICTORS over this last church age, we come to the conclusion of the message to this church age. We have seen by scripture how the church age has been of and in a time of Great Tribulation.

Now all we have to do for the completion of the manifestation of Him to literally appear, through and as us, is to ask ourselves, DO I BELIEVE?

I bless the name (nature) of Elohim. And I thank Him for speaking to us through this study of the seven church ages. I thank Him for showing us, OURSELVES in this Book of Revelation; for opening our eyes to the JOINING of us IN AND AS HIM. I humbly call forth the focus of each one called to Fatherhood. I call forth STRENGTH to let NOTHING OR NO ONE stand in the way of the focus that has been brought forth for us to take hold of and not let go of.

The next part that I will send out is a study that I did some time ago. The Great Tribulation. I hope that all of you ARE NOT seeing the Book of Revelation as a FUTURE EVENT, but all fulfilled in the Spirit, and almost finished manifesting in this realm. 

PART TWENTY-SIX

NOVEMBER 10, 2007

THE CITY OF GOD

For some time now, Father has been impressing the word, “city” on my heart. When we think of a city we think of all the things that relate to that city. We think of the buildings, houses, the traffic, the hustle and bustle. We notice growth or lack of growth. We inquire about the city: its reputation, its safety and as much as we can find out about it.

As I thought about the word “city”, the first thought that came to me, was New Jerusalem, the Holy City.

Rev. 21:2 “And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”

This word “city” means, a city or a town. (#4172). This city of #4172, comes from: to engage in warfare (literally or figureatively). It comes from a single encounteror a series; it comes from battle, fight, (make) war.

So, this city is coming from warfare. And notice, Rev 21 tells us, “I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem coming down from God out of heaven.” We have learned that heaven is not somewhere in outer space, but, is between our ears. Our Spiritual ears. So, the battle or warfare takes place in our heavenlies, our thinking, and THEN it comes down into manifestation.

This is what we’ve been doing, having a battle take place in our heavens. (Armageddon) All things that are not of Father is/has been being shakened. As each belief/thought is shaken and is replaced (putting on the Mind of Christ), by our being awakened to Father’s Truth. That Truth comes down into our being and our being is manifesting AS HIS BEING! Praise His Name!

This battle is worked out within us. There is/has been much bustle going on. Each time a new (to us) Truth comes from Father, the religious carnal mind begins battling within this city of God–US! If you noticed, in the definitions, this warfare is figuratively and literally. Actually, it’s both. The literal battle begins among the brethren.

John 14:2 “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.”

We KNOW that WE are Father’s house. Within us, are many mansions. This word, “mansion” means: a staying, or a residence, (the act or the place).# 3438. Sound familiar? The staying (the focusing) on HIM. The root word is “men’-o” (men–that really sounds familiar). Many are still “staying at the place” of MAN! This word, men’-o, is a verb meaning to stay in a given place, state of being, relation, or expectancy. A verb shows action. To STAY is an action.(or lack of it).

Now, John told us, in Rev 21, that this “Holy City, New Jerusalem, the City of God, is com-ING! A process of appearing. If it was appearing to John, (even in the Spirit), that means that the city WAS, not would be. As it came down from heaven, it appeared, manifested to John’s Spiritual seeing. The city WAS, before it appeared to John.

John 14:2, “…I go to prepare a place for you...”

Folks this that Jesus was saying, was the manifestation of what He did before the foundation of the world. He did it then, and here in John, He is manifesting what He said, “I go to prepare a place for you.” The City was before the foundation of the world. It’s been waiting to appear, IN and AS US!

John 14:3 “…I will come AGAIN and receive you unto (into) myself.”

Jesus returned to His Position of being Father. (John 17:4-5). “I will come again.” Just as Father manifested in the flesh man, Jesus, HE HAS COME AGAIN, as US. We are HIS LIFE!

“…that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go, ye know, and the way ye know.”

This is because Father is living HIS LIFE through us, the same Spirit Being that He is. There is ONE SPIRIT. (Eph. 4:4) And did He not tell us, “ye know all things? (1 John 2:20) And the hidden things are NOW being revealed to/in us.

Now, let’s look at some things.

Jer. 33:4-5 “For thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning the houses of this city, and concerning the houses of the kings of Judah, which are thrown down by the mounts, and by the sword. They come to fight with the Chaldeans, but it is to fill them with the dead bodies of men, whom I have slain in mine anger and in my fury, and for all whose wickedness I have hid my face from this city.”

The houses of this city and the houses of Judah are carnal thoughts. Are thrown down by the mounts. Mounts means, rampart of besiegers. The besieging thoughts of the carnal mind and carnal words. These mounts or thoughts are filled with death of carnal thoughts.

VS 6 “Behold, I will bring it (the city) health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace AND TRUTH.

VS 7 “And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, AND WILL BUILD THEM, AS AT THE FIRST.” (ISA 1:26-27)

VS 8 “And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me.” This has been done!

VS 9 “And it (the city) shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth…” (Eph. 3:14-16)

“…for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto IT.”

VS 10 “Thus saith the Lord; AGAIN there shall be heard in this place, which ye say shall be desolate without MAN, and without BEAST, even in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem that are desolate, without MAN, and without inhabitant, and without BEAST.”

Twice, NO MAN, AND NO BEAST=natures!! NO MAN!! The nature of MAN and the BEAST will not be heard. What will be heard?

VS 11 “The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice or the bride…” these voices are of the SPIRIT, not MAN! and the voice of those that say, Praise the Lord of hosts: for the Lord is good, for the mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise unto the house of the Lord. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, AS AT THE FIRST, saith the Lord.”

In the Spirit, “land” is our body. Earthen vessels. And it will be returned AS AT THE FIRST.

(We had forgotten that He made ALL things perfect. and it still is, and we must BELIEVE into what He says, for it to manifest.)

VS 16 “In those days shall Judah be saved and Jerusalem shall dwell safely; and this is the name (nature) wherewith SHE shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.”

“she”= the soul, the salvation of the soul.(which has happened).

I want to look at the Book of Revelation and the City.

Revelation 21:1 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away, and there was no more sea.”

Now, John was seeing this in the Spirit. Think hard on this, PLEASE. WHEN was John seeing this? He saw it in 98AD! This means that it was available THEN!! AND actually, BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD. This SHOULD give us an idea of how I AM SEES THINGS TODAY, YESTERDAY, AND FOREVER!! People get so upset when I say that I AM does NOT see the things we are doing, HE SEES THINGS THE WAY HE CREATED THEM!! It has been OUR THOUGHTS as to whether something is “good or bad”. NOT HIM!! And when our focus is ON HIM, we see as He sees and we see ALL THINGS PURE!! This is the renewing of the mind.

The first heaven (our mind), and it is all we have ever known about the mind: that we didn’t know that we had the Mind of Christ; and that first mind WERE (past tense) passed away. Not only that; but the first earth (our body) WERE passed away. Do you realize what this is saying? OUR BODY IS ALREADY PERFECTED; IF we see as HE sees. IF we keep the focus of His Truth. AS we keep the focus of His Truth, the perfection of the body MANIFESTS!! I know, this is hard to take in if you are experiencing illness. But, and I don’t mean to offend anyone, we have BELIEVED in the illness, MORE THAN HIS TRUTHS. But, TODAY, there is a people BELIEVING WHAT HE IS TELLING US AND IT IS MANIFESTING.

I want to tell you how our heavens has operated. I will use me as an example: when the doctor told me, some 15-17 years ago, that I had diabetes, you know what happened? The FOWLS started flying in my heavens, BIG TIME!! OH, THAT MEANS THIS: AND THAT MEANS THAT!!! Yep, and my BELIEF followed right behind those fowls!! And then, so MANY symptoms MANIFESTED!! And I lived (???) all those years taking 6 shots a day!! My heavens were full, but not of what they should have been full of. And then, about 6 or 7 years ago, He rose up within me, and explained to me that this body DOES NOT HAVE TO SEE DEATH. And I started studying this out; I cried out to Him; I spent SO MUCH TIME with Him, and when the diabetes caused the first of three strokes, HE TRUELY got my focus. He spoke within me what to do, and I did it. AND I BELIEVED IT, BECAUSE IT WORKED!! I am not bragging on Linda, I am glorying in the True IDENTITY THAT LINDA IS!!

The first heaven and the first earth HAS PASSED AWAY. And this is how HE SEES IT. HE sees NO MORE SEA (human beings), He sees HIS OWN REFLECTION!

Revelation 21:2-4 “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no mor death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the FORMER THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY.”

Where is New Jerusalem coming from? DOWN, OUT OF HEAVEN. Where is heaven? BETWEEN OUR EARS. In other words, a people is hearing with ears that can hear. It is coming frorm (out within God). And where is God? In us, walking AS US. All of this is happening WITHIN US. It is not a literal city. WE ARE THE CITY. HE IS THE CITY. And His people will be a reflection of HIM. So, it is HIM, that is ALL IN ALL.

We are His tabernacle, His vehicle to be seen. We are in Him, ONE TOGETHER. ONE not us AND Him, just Him. His Reflections are seen everywhere, because He is everywhere, where life is. A life with no pain, no illnesses, no death, no tears of thinking that we are separated from Him; no sorrow of this illusion that we have been believing. EYES ARE OPENED and SEEING AS HE SEES ALL THINGS!

VS 5 “And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me; Write these words are true and faithful. And He said unto me, IT IS DONE. I AM Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”

What we have to look at closely here is this; WHO sets on the throne, even now? WE DO. Those who know their true Identity. And Who makes all things new? WE DO. As we bring in the world to their true Identity. Think about it. We were told in Genesis 2:2, that God FINISHED HIS WORK, right? We saw in John 17: 4-5 that the work of Jesus (God) was finished, right? And IF we were in Him at our “beginning” and have never really left Him, and will be/are at the end, WHO is Alpha and Omega? US!! So WHO will be as God and have Sons? WHO will do all that verse 4 speaks of? US. BARE IN MIND, THIS BOOK OF REVELATION IS NOT REVEALING THE MAN, JESUS; IT IS REVEALING “ONE LIKE UNTO”, (REV. 1:13).

Now for joyous, wonderful truth; this company of “one like unto” has JUST BEGUN THEIR WORK!! WE are spreading the Good News of the true Identity of all. We are the One who will bring every MAN to his knees as He confesses His God, His true Identity. Hallelujah!!! Let all of this sink in , eat it, digest it. Allow the real Mind to speak to you. Don’t think you are crazy and don’t let anyone tell you that you are. THIS IS HIS PLAN, not man’s!! What did HE say? “IT IS DONE”, “IT IS FINISHED”. BELIEVE HIM!! LIVE HIM!! WALK HIM!!! NEVER take your focus off of Him. You can’t see Him and the illusion at the same time.

Now, as for “the son”. While we are in Fatherhood, those who are not, ARE OUR SONS!!

VS 8 “But the fearful, and UNBELIEVING and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and beimstone; which is the second death.

Now, these are spiritual, not the natural. Fearful=IS NOT OF GOD. Unbelieving=those who continue to live the illusion of the carnal mind. Liars=those who lie against God’s Word. Murderers=those TEACHING death and destruction by teaching another gospel. All these are spiritual things and people.

This “fire and brimstone” is I AM. He is a consuming fire. And WHO ARE WE? It is out of our mouth, His Reflections that this word, this purifying Word will come from. YES, we will/are ministering to all of those that have and will see death, physical. The first death, WE have already partook of. ON THE CROSS!! Our “old man” died and we were resurrected REMEMBERING OUR TRUE IDENTIY.

VS 9  “And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

Let me say this about the seven plagues. Yes, they will go on IN THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO DON”T KNOW THEIR TRUE IDENTITY, but not forever, they too, will come to know Who they are. He is no respecter of persons. Who is open, will receive Truth. He is not open will go on in the illusion UNTIL they DO open up to the Spirit.

The Lamb’s wife. OK. Who did we learn is the Lamb, here in the Book of Revelation. LAMKIN!! US. Some of us have been taught about how we are going to be the wife of Jesus and all that. Folks, come on. Jesus IS NO LONGER THAT FLESH MAN WHO WALKED THE EARTH. HE RETURNED TO HIS ORIGINAL POSITION OF FATHER. (John 17:5) AND I AM IS A SPIRIT!! SPIRITS DO NOT MARRY. (as we think of marriage) I want to show you how contradictory some teaching is. MOST of christiandom, when a spouse dies, THINKS, BELIEVES that they will be with their spouse AGAIN when the spouse dies, too. And at the same time, they believe that when they die and go to heaven, they are going to be the wife of the man, Jesus. They are going to live in mansions, on streets of gold with their natural spouse. Well, what are they going to do, spend one night with the natural spouse, and then run to another mansion and be a wife, that night, to Jesus? Come on. Even the carnal mind doesn’t believe that!!

This wife that is spoken of here in verse 9, is speaking of A UNITEING! A ONENESS! The wife, or the uniting is THE CITY!! The City is God. The City is US. UNITED: A ONENESS IN HIM. And guess what? We don’t have to have a license to prove we are united!!

** I am not going through all the meanings of the stones that make up or describe the foundations of the city. IF you want them, let me know and AFTER we complete this series, I will send them out to you. I will tell you, that each stone is a part of your make up, your True Being. The priests of the Tabernacle wore them in the natural, but, we are finding out that EVERYTHING told in the scriptures has a meaning, a spiritual meaning behind them. But I do want to look at verse 21-27.

Revelation 21:21-27 “And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.”

The number 12, speaks of the Divine government of God. (1) MT 10:1, (2) Rev 12:1, (3) Gen 49:28-33) (1) This where Jesus called His 12 disciples and gave them power over all things. (2) This is where the Woman (the True Church) clothed with the sun gave birth to the Manchild. (3) this is where the “field was purchased” and Jacob commanded his sons;).

The gates, if you have ever studied out the 12 tribes, are steps in our walk INTO HIM. Or I should say, into the KNOWING that we are and have always been in Him.

What I want to look at here is the PEARL. This is US. Do you know how a pearl comes to be? WITHIN the oyster shell, the pearl is started and sand is INSIDE too. The sand rubs against the pearl until it is formed into this precious stone. This has been us. We HAVE BEEN INSIDE I AM. All that has rubbed us, here in this earthen realm, has shown us Who we are. We were rubbed until we shone the True Light. And notice ,

VS21 each of the 12 gates were 12 pearls. AND EVERY SEVERAL GATE WAS OF ONE PEARL:..”

Look at this; each of the 12 gates (plural) were pearls. “BUT, EVERY SEVERAL GATE WAS OF ONE PEARL”.

There are only “every several” GATE (ONE GATE although it was EVERY SEVERAL) was OF=out from within ONE pearl. ONE SINGLE PEARL. To me, and some may disagree but this is what I was shown, this ONE GATE, ONE PEARL, ALTHOUGH IT WAS MADE UP OF “EVERY SEVERAL”, depicts the REMNAT that IS NOW CALLED INTO FATHERHOOD. A manymembered body.

“And the STREET of the city was pure gold as it were transparent glass.”

You see, this is the problem of “ADDING TO THE WORD”, this is where people THINK that heaven is made of STREETS (pural) made of gold. IT DOES NOT SAY THAT. Street, speaks of our walk, our lifestyle IN HIM. HIS LIFESTYLE is TRANSPARENT, like glass, IF we have eyes to see. This is the process we have been going through. The coming into REMEMBRANCE of our True Identity, and then MANIFESTING IT HIS LIFE!!

PART TWENTY-SEVEN

NOVEMBER 11, 2007

Revelation 21:22-23 “And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and Lambkin are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lambkin is the thereof.”

We are looking at the City, being described, as John saw it. And how to word this can be a little tricky, so I will try my best to say this, so that it can be understood.

There was NO TEMPLE in the City.

1 Cor. 6:19 “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is IN YOU, which ye HAVE of (out from within) God, and ye are not your own?”

1 Cor 3:16 “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”

In different realms of our walk BACK into Who we really are, we have THOUGHT that WE were the temple of God. And “as a man thinketh”, so we were; UNTIL we were awakened to this Identity. Many today still think that they are the temple of God, instead being His BEING. In this temple that we THOUGHT we were, the Holy Ghost lived in this temple. And “as a man thinketh” so He did. (in our mind).

NOW, upon awakening, we see that THERE IS NO TEMPLE! It was just a part of the dream we were living in. And upon awakening, we see NO TEMPLE. We see ONLY HIM/HER.

Notice, “the Lord God Almighty and the Lambkin ARE the temple of it (the city).”

HERE WE ARE SEEING THE FULFILLMENT OF I AM’s PLAN! Think about it. This DOES NOT MEAN that there are TWO Who are the temple. God and US, or God and Jesus. In fact, this is showing us that JUST EXACTLY, as Jesus the man, WAS REALLY GOD ALL THE TIME JESUS WALKED THE EARTH!

1 Tim. 3:16 “And WITHOUT CONTROVERSY great is the mystery of godliness. GOD WAS MANIFESTING THE FLESH…

If you read all of that verse, you see where GOD preached to the Gentiles; GOD did all that is mentioned, NOT JESUS. JESUS WAS GOD, in an earthly disguise. Just as we ARE. And as Jesus said, “when you see me, you see the Father.”. Here in Revelation 21, what is being said is “when you see the Lambkin, you see the Father.” So, it isn’t two separate Beings in this City. It is ONE, I AM. And WHO is in the temple, in this City? EVERYONE and EVERYTHING. This is why John “saw no temple therein (in the City).” NO ONE is outside the temple to see a temple!! Each and everyone has or will awaken to the fact, THE TRUTH that they ARE ONE WITH HIM, so THEY ARE THE TEMPLE. As well as the City! I hope I have said this clearly.

Revelation 21:23  “And the city had no NEED of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it; for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lambkin is the light thereof.”

Now, I know that I am treading on a lot of people’s THINKING, BUT: almost EVERY writer that I have seen their writings have always said that when the “sun” is being spoken of, in scripture, that that word “sun” is symbolic of the man Jesus. IF that is their belief, then they cannot change the symbolism HERE IN REVELATION. AND we all know that the “moon” is symbolic of the “reflection of the sun”. NOW, think of this scripture:

2 Cor. 5:16 “Wherefore HENCEFORTH (or from now on) know we no man after the flesh: YES, THOUGH WE HAVE KNOWN CHRIST AFTER THE FLESH, YET nowhenceforth KNOW WE HIM NO MORE.”

Who is being talked about here is the CHRIST that we have known as the flesh man, Jesus. In the previous verse, it is TALKING ABOUT THE MAN JESUS. But, the flesh man Jesus, was a flesh body that GOD STEPPED INTO, just as He did US. It is NOT DOING AWAY WITH ALL THAT JESUS ACCOMPLISHED, ALL WAS DONE. But, after it was finished, Jesus (who was really God in a flesh body) returned to His position (for lack of a better word) of FATHERHOOD. Read 1Tim. 3:16, and then read John 17:4-5 and you will see God coming (appearing) in the flesh, as Jesus, and then RETURNING (just as we are) to Fatherhood. God HAD to have a flesh body to die on the cross, because GOD COULD NOT AND CAN NOT DIE, so He took on the form of the flesh man Jesus. Just as we are, God is a Spirit. Spirit cannot be seen (unless we are sensitive enough to see into the invisible realm). God wanted, PLANNED for mankind (in this fallen state of being) to SEE HOW MUCH HE LOVED US and wanted to awaken us from the fallen state. He knew that IF He remained in the form of the flesh man Jesus, WE WOULD NOT HAVE HIM IN US TO AWAKEN US. So He sacrificed that flesh form that He appeared as, so that we all could be awakened, upon our RESURRECTION WITH HIM, as He went back (although He never really left) to Fatherhood. And just as He never really left Fatherhood, WE NEVER WERE SEPARATED FROM HIM, except in our fallen THINKING. The Lambkin and God were ONE. What we are reading is JOHN’S UNDERSTANDING AND SPEAKING OF WHAT HE SAW IN THIS VISION THAT HE WAS BEING SHOWN.

The word CHRIST, IS NOT JESUS. Christ was as much in the man Jesus as He is in us. Christ is ANOINTING. The ANOINTING is GOD’S LIFE FLOWING THROUGH US, JUST AS IT DID JESUS. This is why Jesus said, “when you see Me, you see the Father”. He was Father in the disguise as a man; and He was Christ, because it was GOD’S LIFE FLOWING THROUGH HIM JUST AS IT IS US. There is ONLY ONE BEING, and that IS GOD. That’s Who we are in forms that God is taking to show HIMSELF. Take this within, and let the Spirit witness the Truth of this to you.

The rest of this chapter is just describing the City. Also, chapter 22 is describing the city. That means it is describing YOU AND ME.

I will be doing one more part to this series. And I call forth understanding to all of us, to open up within us, and cause us to see the Truth of this Book. Cause us to see the Truth of US.

I will take this up, in the next part. Because I want you to see the Truth, that does not sit with MOST Christians. And I want to explain it with my full attention.

PART TWENTY-EIGHT

NOVEMBER 13, 2007

CONCLUSION

In Revelation 21 we noticed the description of New Jerusalem, the holy city, coming down out of heaven. Coming down, or becoming a LITERAL PART of us, bodily.

Revelation 21:11-14 showed John the splendor and glory of this city.

In Revelation 21:15-18 we able to see the strength and power of the city.

In Revelation 21:19-21 we are shown the beauty of the city.

Revelation 21:22-27 revealed the inside of the city, where there is no temple for the Lord God and the Lamb because the servants of God are forever IN the Lord in all their glory and honor.

Revelation 22 continues the description of New Jerusalem.

We often think of prophecy as a prediction of the future, but the original Greek word, propheteia, means “speaking the mind of God.” A prophecy may predict the future, or it might not. In this case, we must remember His INSTRUCTIONS to us: “BE ESTABLISHED IN PRESENT TRUTH”. There is no time in God. Just the PRESENT. So, this prophesy, the whole Book of Revelation, is for us NOW, IN THE PRESENT. We are the manifesting factor. BELIEVING WHAT HE SAYS, AND BEING IT!! IT IS NOT US, IT IS HIS APPEARING THAT IS BEING SEEN!! Rejoice!!

I want to touch on a few things that I wanted you to see; I got excited about showing this GLORIOUS CITY that we are, so I will show the rest, quickly. With all that we have seen, so far, I am sure you will be able to read these chapters and see for yourself, what is being said; who is being talked about; and the conclusion of His Plan.

Quite a few of you have asked about the “144,000” I will just say this; 12 X 12 =144. 12 is the number of God’s Government. There were 12 tribes of God’s people, and each tribe represent a step in our walk. So, the 12 tribes, would today, take in ALL PEOPLE. The number 144, 000 is symbolic of “all the tribes” of God, being redeemed, and being “as He is”. All “tribes” becoming ONE in Him. AS Him.

Begin here.

The Whore of Babylon (17:1-18). Many see this as the Catholic Church, and it is; BUT, IT IS EVERY OTHER CHURCH IN THE CHURCH SYSTEM THAT IS NOT SPIRIT LED.

John sees a woman seated on a scarlet beast with seven (seven speaks of “perfect”) heads (heads speak of the mind) and ten horns (horns speak of power).. On her forehead is written, “Babylon the great, mother of whores and of earth’s abominations.” (NRSV) What this means is that the Whore is perfectly all carnal !! In every way. She has not the Spirit leading her churches, her sermons, or anything about her. She TRYS to appear, Godly, but she cannot do it.

The Fall of Babylon (18:1-24). I won’t write all of this out, you can read the entire chapter in your bible. An angel announces that the fall of Babylon is imminent, and warns the faithful to depart the city to escape the destruction.(this is the TRUMPET that sounds. Remember what the trumpet is? It is a true Word from God. Those who have profited from their relationship with Babylon lament her passing. How many times, since I AM brought us out of the church system, did we sit and say, “Oh I miss the fellowship so much!! I cannot stand the loneliness!!” And those who do not heed His calling them out go back and pay their tithes to the Great Whore. They forget that “what you lay down with, you BECOME ONE WITH!!” But, they will come out of her, kicking and screaming UNTIL they are judged. (REMEMBER what judgment means; CORRECTING WHAT IS INCORRECT). It IS NOT condemnation, it is an awakening. Our “profit” was the ACTIVITIES!! The carnal “praising” to “get us into the Spirit”. Oh yes, we have all had our part in this; and there is no place for feeling guilty. IF we had not gone through it, we would still be thinking, “oh I will sing a song and be lifted up”. That is the carnal mind’s thought. Remember “Satan, the carnal mind, can appear as an angel of Light”. We went through it. We learned. We left it. By the leaving, when we were directed to leave, shows that we were hearing HIS VOICE and was obedient to it. And then came the awakening.

Rejoicing in Heaven (19:1-10). A great multitude in heaven sing a song of praise to God, who has pronounced righteous judgment against the whore of Babylon and avenged the blood of His servants. But, remember, the avenging is not as we, think in the natural, it was simply His correction. It is HIS LOVE that will not allow them to stay a part of her.

Satan is Bound for a Thousand Years (20:1-10). John sees an angel seize the dragon, Satan, tie it up in chains and throw it into the abyss. The dragon is confined there for a thousand years so it can no longer lead the nations astray. After a thousand years, Satan is released to again deceive the nations of earth for a short time. Then Satan is thrown into the pool of fire and sulfur with the other two beasts to be tormented day and night forever and ever. And WE HAVE ALREADY DONE THIS!! Simply by accepting and BELIEVING HIS WORD. (Heb. 2:14-15)

Revelation 17:1-18 “One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters. With her the kings of the earth committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries. Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a desert. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. This title was written on her forehead: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE OTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus. When I saw her, I was greatly astonished. Then the angel said to me: “Why are you astonished? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast she rides, which has the seven heads and ten horns. The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and will come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because he once was, now is not, and yet will come. This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for a little while. The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction. The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.” Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to rule, until God’s words are fulfilled. The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.”

This is just more about the Great Whore. But a word of encouragement. The SON DID COME OUT OF HER!!

Revelation 18:1-24 “After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. (WE are that angel. Lighting the way for others. BEING the LIGHT OF THE WORLD.) With a mighty voice he shouted: “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable width=’100%’ bird. (Birds represent THOUGHTS. Where do they believe that the devil is still alive and well? IN THE CHURHES. SHE is where the demons get resurrected and get their power from.)For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries. (can you see here the main purpose of the system? MONEY. And those who commit adultery with her, become ONE with her.) Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes. (let’s understand here, YES ALL SIN HAS BEEN TAKEN, but the BELIEF SYSTEM AND MIND SET of the church system, STILL BELIEVES IN SIN AND LIKE ADAM, EXPECT TO BE PUNISHED FOR THEIR SINS.(Adam HID HIMSELF FROM GOD, and when he told God, “we are naked”, all God said to them was, “who told you that you were naked?” You see, Adams’s THINKING had already begin the descent into the lower realm of thinking. The DEATH that God spoke, when He said, “in the day that you eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, you will DIE.” He did not mean they would see physical death at that time. He meant that Adam would DIE TO THE THINKING LIKE GOD.) Give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done. Mix her a double portion from her own cup. Give her as much torture and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself. In her heart she boasts, ‘I sit as queen; I am not a widow, and I will never mourn.’ Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.(And our God is a consuming fire, so, so are we.) “When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: ” ‘Woe! Woe, O great city, O Babylon, city of power! In one hour your doom has come!’ The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes any more— cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble; cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and bodies and souls of men. They will say, The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your riches and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered. The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn and cry out: ‘Woe! Woe, O great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls! (the merchants are the pastors, teachers, evangelists, apostles, prophets who are working under the church system, and NOT the anointing of God. They laid with her, they became ONE with her.”              

In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!’ Every sea captain, This is just another way to say the same thing; the captain is the navigator who runs the ship AND the people aboard it.) and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off. When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city like this great city?’ They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out: ” ‘Woe! Woe, O great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! (this richness in not in money, but they got rich in her LIES, her FALSE KNOWLEDGE, HER ADULTROUS WAY. And yes some did make money off of her LIES!!) In one hour she has been brought to ruin! Rejoice over her, O heaven! Rejoice, saints and apostles and prophets! God has judged her for the way she treated you.’ Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said: With such violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again. The music of harpists and musicians, flute players and trumpeters, will never be heard in you again. No workman of any trade will ever be found in you again. The sound of a millstone will never be heard in you again. 23The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world’s great men. By your magic spell all the nations were led astray. In her was found the blood of prophets and of the saints, and of all who have been killed on the earth.”

This does not mean to rejoice over her, with contempt. Rejoice because you know she had to fall, in order to be made clean. All things are about LOVE. Correction shows one facet of real LOVE. You rejoice because you know that she is on her way back to Who she really is. Hallelujah!!

CONCLUSION

Revelation 19:1-10 “After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for true and just are his judgments. He has condemned the great prostitute who corrupted the earth by her adulteries. He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.” And again they shouted: “Hallelujah! The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.” The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried: “Amen, Hallelujah!” Then a voice came from the throne, saying: “Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, both small and great!” Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.” (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.) Then the angel said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!’ “And he added, “These are the true words of God.” At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

The wedding is here now. The UNITING back to Who we have always been. The church system’s time is short. WE, those Who have awakened to their True Identity will bring this about.

So, we have now seen the vision that John saw. From the beginning of God’s plan to the fulfillment of it. ALSO, we have seen IT IS DONE! IT IS FINISHED!! Now, it is up to us to awaken and walk into it, and as we walk into His Finished Plan, it is manifests right here on earth. We, the ones “like unto…” has renewed our minds, as we were instructed to do ; we HAVE a perfected body that manifests AS WE BELIEVE IT. The church system IS ALREADY CHANGED and CLEANSED, and WE will bring that into manifestation. And the best way that I know of how to end this series, is to speak into being a SURE WORD. AMEN, AMEN, SO BE IT. Eat it. Digest it. Believe it. BE IT!!
