This is what the Lord woke me up with this morning. Before my feet hit the floor I had a lot to share. I do not know how organized the writing is because I could not type as fast as I was receiving from the Lord but I pray that your understanding will be enlightened.
What is babble? My Rodale Synonym Finder says babble is “gibber, jabber, jargon, mutter, mumble, stammer, chatter, talk idly, bull, clatter, run off at the mouth, tell tales, ramble, gossip, whisper, blab, tattle and the list went on for nearly half a page.
Webster concurred with an added definition “indistinct or confused speech || idle talk || to utter confusedly or incoherently.
Remember the account in the Bible of the Tower of Babel? Gen. 11:4 says that this tower reached the heavens. In Gen 11:9 the meaning of Babel is explained by the Hebrew verb babal, “to confuse, mix,” and the confusion of speech.
Why was God opposed to this great tower which reached into the heavens? Gen 11:6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people [is] one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have IMAGINED to do.
This people had not regarded God in their hearts. They were working from the soulish realm. The imagination is a very dangerous thing. These folks were plotting with evil intent. They had devised a plan to fortify themselves and become inaccessible not only to future enemies but also they were cutting off God Himself. They were using human effort thinking to gain some type of advantage.
Let me say that nothing one does in or out of church is out of the sight from an ALL seeing God.
The Lord immediately headed off this separation, Gen 11:7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
Again, man was dependent upon God alone. God refused to leave man alone to his own imaginations and devices.
This takes us back to the Garden of Eden. “Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden to till the ground from whence he was taken. So He drove out the man; and He placed at the east of the Garden of Eden Cherubim, and a flaming sword, which turned every way to keep the way of the tree of life.“ (Gen. 3:23-24)
The Cherubim is an instrument of God to keep fleshly man out of the garden. For if, natural man were to eat of that tree of life in his current condition, man would live forever in this miserable state. However, the Cherubim keeps the way back to the Garden (heart of the Father).
According to Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance the word, cherubim, comes from the Hebrew word, keruwbim, which is a transliteration and means “imaginary figures.” Keruwbim (cherubim) is the plural of keruwb (cherub). Simply put, THE CHERUBIM ARE IMAGINATIONS which find their roots in the imaginative mind of man.
A careful study of scripture will show that the cherubim were sewn into the veil, that which represents man’s mind, and is the obstacle which separates him from the Most Holy Place. (And thou shaft make a veil of blue and purple, and scarlet and fine twined linen of cunning work: cherubim shall it be made. (Exod. 26:31)
The curtains of the tabernacle also contained cherubim, as well as the two… Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubim of cunning work shalt thou make them. (Exod. 26:1)
The two doors also were of olive tree; and he carved upon them carvings of cherubim and palm trees and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold, and spread gold upon the cherubim, and upon the palm trees. (1 Kings 6:32)
Doors of the temple, not to mention the walls. And he carved all the walls of the house round about with carved figures of cherubim… (1 Kings 6:29)
Everywhere in the tabernacle and the temple cherubim were sewn and made. This was for the purpose of keeping carnality out of the Holy of the holies, which is the same as the midst of the Garden.
There is a Tower of Babel today. It is called organized religion and all its high-exalted tapestries. Ever wonder why there are so many different denominations? Why so many different beliefs? Christianity has been scattered all over the world. Going out into all the earth is a good thing. My question is why within the world of Christianity are there so many different personal beliefs? Some believe that water baptism is necessary for admittance into heaven, some believe it is a formality, some believe in speaking with other tongues, others believe that was done away with with the Apostles, some believe once saved always saved, others believe a person can backslide and go to hell, some believe that Jesus comes before the tribulation others after the tribulation, some believe in eternal punishment other believe in ultimate reconciliation and the list goes on. In Christianity we all claim to worship the same God who is the Father of us All. How did we get so scattered? How did our belief in the one true God become so undefined and broadened?
Why all the different denominations?
Has the mighty Tower of Babel been built again? Has man’s vain imaginations taken him into lofty heights of self-exaltation? Has man’s Kingdoms arisen out of his own heart to oppress the weak? The Church has become a meeting place for self-righteous people who loathe the impoverished sinner. Church is the sanctuary for patting one another on the back and saying “job well done.” Many churches today do not want to drunks, the street folks, or prostitutes in their church. The word from the pulpit is “Repent or die!” “Turn or Burn!” I wonder if those two statements are direct quotes from Jesus? What is the limit we allow a confessed sinner to stay in our church, to occupy a pew before we ask them to leave? Honestly I have known many churches who have asked the lost to leave if they did not bow at the man made altar within a certain period of time. Sad isn’t it?
What is mixture and confusion? The church world lives in a place of sanctification today where there is some flesh and some Spirit. This makes for an imbalance and leaves a door open for works of man. It sometimes means that man will try to achieve something first then once he has failed then he looks to God for help.
Here is the conclusion. Those who live after the letter of the law are dead. Reading the Bible and memorizing verses will not enrich your spiritual life. Those who live after the Spirit of the law are alive and eternal. I am not waiting for eternal life, I AM LIVING ETERNAL LIFE NOW!
I live a life of reconciliation. This is a life, which cannot be taught and instructed as though it belongs to some institute of higher learning or university. For example the Ten Commandments can be memorized but even after one memorizes them they can still be broken. A person can quote them, live by them, hang them around their neck and upon the walls but they can still miss the mark because in order to truly know them they must be written upon your heart. The difference is to memorize them is outward to have them engrafted upon your heart in inward. Things written upon our heart because part of us. Things written upon paper and stone are impossible to live by for what if I were to loose that piece of paper how would I know what to follow? The life of reconciliation must be revealed to the heart and once applied its manifestation bears fruit. Everything of God bears fruit for He is the Creator and the Farmer. What He plants will grow and bear fruit. Nothing lies dormant in the Kingdom of God. There is always an increase in God’s Kingdom. Sonship, First Fruit, the Elect, ministry of Reconciliation all fall under the same category of the “Feet Company.” Feet walk, they carry a person from one place to another. They carry a load. They also crush things when they step. It is the responsibility of the Elect of God to claim those places they walk upon for the Lord and to crush the head of the enemy every step of the way. If it is the mindset of the devil or a poisoned doctrine the Elect must remain true to the mission of reconciliation that God will be All in All.
You might say that this is impossible. You might accuse me of speaking in parables and riddles. But didn’t Jesus give us parables? Here is a perfect example. Most people use the King James Bible or a version, which has derived from the King James version. The king of England commissioned forty-seven clergymen and lay-scholars in 1604 for the task of coming up with a version that would be the common Bible for the churches in England. The group divided into six companies, each taking a part of the text. Each man independently, then as a company. They considered their individual efforts until they were in agreement. As sections were completed, they were handed to the other companies for criticism. Finally, a committee of two members from each company harmonized the entire undertaking. Fifteen rules were to bind this large number of revisers who would render a translation for publication in the year of 1611.
“They were ordered to use the Bishops’ Bible as the basis of the new version, and alter it as little as the original would allow; but if the prior translations of Tyndale, Coverdale, Matthew, Cranmer or Whitchurch, and the Geneva editors agreed better with the text, to adopt the same… it was not a translation from the Original, but merely a revision of the Versions then in use… None of these were made from the Original Greek, but only compare with it–being all translated from the Vulgate Latin” (The Emphatic Diaglott: History of English Versions & To The Reader).
The Old Testament rested upon the Same Masoretic Hebrew text as did all subsequent versions; but no ancient manuscripts of the Greek New Testament arrived in England until 1628. Those who were responsible for this “greatest of all versions,” as it was known, did not have the advantage at the best Greek text, even if it would have been extensively used.
It is of no wonder that as early as the early 1760’s thirty thousand new marginal references were added to these editions. Authorities conservatively estimate that there remains ten thousand errors in this most widely used of all Bible translations, some say twenty thousand.
Notwithstanding, the corruption of the written word could not have been by any accident. It was not outside the will of God. There was no way for these men to keep from sewing the Cherubim into the content of this book. And why would God allow such a thing? He didn’t allow it, brethren – He mandated it! He placed the cherubim of translated errors at the east side of Eden‘s Garden. This was to insure that man in his own might and intellect could never eat from the fruit of life without the One who is Life – Jesus!
Because there are so many different beliefs under the name of “Christianity” someone must be correct and someone must be incorrect. Some are following Jesus the man, others are following “Christ Jesus,” Jesus Christ, or perhaps, “Christ”
I understand Jesus to be Jesus the Christ.
The cherubim have a way of keeping the truth from the earth. As long as man is operating in his own world of imagination and carnal reasoning the truth will be withheld from him for man in his flesh and blood state is of the earth and the things of the earth cannot receive the things from the dimensions of the Spirit.
If we relied on our own cunning ability to comprehend the truth, the cherubim of our own minds would cause us to see an imaginary figure of the truth.
The only true translation of the Bible is the one that is interpreted by the Spirit of God. If the Spirit has not revealed the Father to us then in our own human intellect and imagination we have created our own God to worship. We have indeed built our own towers. We have paintings of Christ, statues of Jesus, sculptures have carved and chiseled likeness and images out of stone, and all of this has been fed into our human nature. This is the tower that must be cast down. 2 Chr. 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
All of the images and things conceived and invented within our hearts and minds from birth has been fed to us with the spoon of carnality and we have been so gullible because we were young and naive that we ate everything. In eating everything our human reasoning comes into play to define all that we have consumed. Without the Spirit of God directing us we come up with a false image of our Lord. Our judgements become outward and we never gain the ability to look inwardly. Everything that has to do with modern church today tends to focus upon the outward. This is the tower that must be cast down.
All the way back in Genesis the Lord recognized that that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually. (Gen 6:5)
Jeremiah spoke of this in Jer.17:9 The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Only God the father has the ability to Luke 1:51 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
From those in the pulpits to those who attend every Sunday morning and once through the week the people have imagined vain things. The church has placed limitations on the Creator of All things because the church is enslaved to their own thoughts and imaginations, which have been promoted from our natural birth. This means even though someone has every good intention they are still working out of a heart that has been darkened and the truth is not revealed.
The towers that have been built in the heart of men are foolishness with God.
Matt 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
When Adam disobeyed God in the Garden and followed the desires of his wife (soul) he went to hide among the trees that were in the Garden. He ate from the Tree of Knowledge this was a tree of both good and evil. Isn’t odd that good is not good enough? This tree was OFF LIMITS even though it possessed GOOD. God says that GOOD is still working in the realm of the flesh. God is looking for a Spiritual people who work within the realm of the unseen by faith. So Adam eats from the forbidden tree of Good and Evil then instead of running to God (The tree of Life) he runs and hides among the other trees. Most people do not realize that there was other tree in the Garden. Gen 3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the TREES OF THE GARDEN.
Symbolically this represents Adam and his wife hiding among the church world. Their covering became the other trees rather than God Gal 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed [is] every one that hangeth on a tree:
Adam and his wife covered their nakedness with the leaves from a fig tree. Remember that Jesus had a personal dealing with the fig tree in his earthly life. Matt. 21:19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. And when the disciples saw [it], they marveled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away Mar. 11:20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
But we have a prophecy to trust in: Ezek. 17:24 And all the trees of the field shall know that I the LORD have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish: I the LORD have spoken and have done [it].
God is going to breathe life back into his church! All of our false imagination in our minds of what the Living God is, how we had formed Him, the way we imagined Him to be, the ideal that God came from us shall be eliminated by the transformation that will take place in each of us upon His full appearing.
Gideon and cut down the groves of the Midianites. Strife, they were merchandisers (Gen 37:28), they vexed Israel by their deceit (Num 25:18), the Lord delivered Israel into their hands (Judges 6:13), and Gideon delivered them. (Judges 7:9)
It is time for everyone who names the name of the Lord to understand who God the Father is. Cherubim reside in carnal minds to keep the carnal men and women from entering into the Garden, from eating of the Tree of Life, and from partaking of its fruit. Cherubim guard the way, keeping carnality from entering in. Our doctrinal views come from this imagination. If you have tried or attempted to enter into the Kingdom any other way than through Jesus you have been led astray. People today believe if they become a member of a certain church or denomination or if they are baptized, or if they are filled and baptized with the Spirit or they make a certain confession or live a certain way that they instantly are admitted into the Kingdom of God. This is not so. Only those who do the will of the Father are accepted.
The Cherubim have a flaming sword and everything that passes by them will be tried by fire to see what they are attempting to bring into the garden. Anything that is of the earth will be burned, destroyed and that person will suffer loss if they try on human efforts to enter in.
There is much more to this but I feel that if you want to be free from the enslavement of ritual and traditions you will have to seek the Father’s counsel in these matters. I am not discrediting the true church. For there is a true church which has no walls, nor roof, nor man in the pulpit. The true church is the body of Christ which is indeed scattered all over the world and who now are being awaken to this New Day the Last Day where Jesus is reigning supremely and subduing His enemies and casting down the Kingdoms of this world. We as the true church are united with Him as He ushers in the Kingdom of God with His appearing in us. The true church trusts in God the Father alone to unite the body so that it can be joined to Christ the head of the church.
The scattering is for a purpose, the Cherubim are for a purpose, and I am privileged to be part of these last days and to present “Present Truth” to those who have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying unto the churches.
