DAY OF THE VENGEANCE OF OUR GOD
BY: SCOTT PARIS
Just knowing the scriptures does not mean that one has a revelation. As Paul said, “Ever learning and never coming to the knowledge of the truth.” 2 Tim. 3:7 So the masses of people having learned the scripture, but having no revelation makes it dead and void.
Many are looking for one spectacular even to happen… an event that can be seen with their natural eyes. But Jesus said that the kingdom comes not with observation.
This is why we need to stop for a moment and think about the, “Day of the Lord.” The bible speaks much about the Day of the Lord. Jesus spoke about it, Paul spoke about it, John spoke about it, and the prophets of old spoke about it too.
Because God is Spirit we must come to terms of scripture being seen and interpreted in spirit and truth. Jesus spoke of natural things but did not mean them to be taken in a natural understanding, He meant them to be interpreted spiritually. When He spoke of Himself as being the Bread come down from heaven, it was a hard saying to carnal men. The carnal minded only understood natural things.
When Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth,” we know that He wanted us to understand that spiritually. And He said, “You are the light of the world.” Surely no one would interpret that naturally.
When Jesus said, “The words that I speak unto you they are spirit and they are life.” Could it be that everything that He spoke was in allegory of parable trying to get us to understand the spiritual things of God?
The 24th chapter of Matthew is one of the most talked about in the bible at this particular point in time of church history. For people are looking for a physical, carnal event to happen.
“For as lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west; so shall the coming of the Son of man be.” Matt.24:27
Here Jesus was speaking of the destruction of the temple and Jerusalem, not the end of the world. In the third verse we read: “And he sat upon the Mount of Olives, and the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of your coming, and the end of the world (age)?”
The word “coming” should be interpreted, “Presence,” so we could understand it as His appearing. Looking at the word, “world,” it does not mean the earth. It is the word, “eon, ” or ‘aion” which means “age.” What age did Jesus come to do away with? He came to do away with the age of the Jew, and to fulfill the age of the Law. He came to usher in the age of the kingdom of God. They did not understand this in the natural. Only the spirit man can understand this. It is the same today.
Someone would say, “Now God has never done away with the Jew.” No, of course, he has never done away with the Jew, but if you read in Isaiah, you find that God divorced that nation of the Old Covenant and brought in a New Jerusalem under a New Covenant which is made up of Greeks and Jews, male and females, bond and free. God does not look upon one nation, He has not political national ties as His own. Matt.21: 43
Psalms says, “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” 24:1 He looks upon the entire race of mankind that has received His Covenant in Jesus Christ, and the promises of God.
If you read the history of the nation of Israel and the city of Jerusalem, you will find out that it happened exactly as Jesus said. In the year 70 A.D. history shows Jerusalem was overthrown by Titus the Roman general and his army.
Now when Jesus said, “As lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west, so shall the coming of the Son of man be.” vs-27 He comes as lightning! In the book of Revelation He says: “Behold he comes quickly,” – or with light – or lightning.
What does lightning do? It brightens the dark places. What is the light? The light in Genesis 1:3, “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
And God called the light day, and the darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
This was not the sun, moon and stars. This was not a creation of the sun that gives light – that gives us our daytime here on earth.
This was a different kind of light that God created. For God did not create the sun until the fourth day, or till the 14th verse of Genesis one.
God was talking about a spiritual day. God called the light “Day.” Remember Jesus saying, “As the lightning shines from the east even unto the west so shall the coming of the Son of man be?” He was speaking spiritually of His Day, His shining, His appearing. He spoke of when He would appear to His disciples in John 14 “I will not leave you comfortless, I will come unto you, I will receive you unto myself.”
When God appears in our lives, He appears in spirit form. In Matthew 24:36 “But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”
Here the Jews were listening to Him speak of the Day of the Lord. Why did Jesus say this? Is there a day and hour as we know days or hours? Why would He say that if He was speaking spiritually? These Jews had to have natural day for their feast days, feasts of trumpets, feasts of Passover, feast of tabernacles, atonement. They wanted the very hour for everything. The hour for the high priest to go into the holy of holies, the hour for the Sabbath to begin. They lived and thought of natural days.
Yet while Jesus was talking of the Day of the Lord, those Jews, who observed holidays said, “Now Lord, when should we observe this day? What day of the calendar would this day be?” Jesus said, “But of that day (speaking of the day of the Lord) and hour knows no man.”
So the Day of the Lord is not a time you can put on the calendar. “No, not the angels of heaven,” because the Day of the Lord speaks of the redemption of the Lord and of Him appearing in our lives and angels know nothing about that. They know not what it is to be redeemed, but man does. Neither do they know what it is to have a relationship of union with Father as man does.
Then Jesus next words were, “But my Father only.” This is to be understood as the highest realm there is in God. The Jews understood a father son relationship. Jesus was born in the flesh – was a man of flesh, and when the Holy Spirit came upon and within Him at the baptism of John, He was a manifestation of God in the flesh. That is why He was Christ Jesus the Word. Christ being interpreted Anointed or Holy Spirit because it was Christ that was in Jesus.
Paul never did say, “Jesus in us.” But he did say, “Christ (anointing) in you the hope of glory.” Col.1:27
But look, He said, “My Father only.” He said, no man knows the day or the hour, or the angels. Only the Father – Who is the highest. When you come to that point, you will know that Day, you will know that hour. It is a relationship with the Father that no man knows. It was Paul’s “third heaven” consciousness, which is “not lawful (possible) for a man to utter.
The Father told me once that: “You create your own environment by the thoughts you think, and by the words you speak.”
Now I see that we create our own heaven, and our own hell, they are now within. Or at least one of them is. Many a preacher is in hell every Sunday morning behind the pulpit, as he speaks to the people, it comes out of the mouth. “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
“If we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with the other, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John. 1:7
We are emissaries of light, not condemnation, and darkness. Our Father is within, and that is the greatest secret of the ages. Christ immerses us into absolute union with the Father, making us the light of the world, even as Jesus. We are one in the light, even as He is the light. We are light bearers of the Father, even as we have our being in Him. Our unbroken relationship with Father fulfills all ritual’s, and creeds of the church realms. We don’t need them anymore. I snuggle up to Him, and lay my head on His breast, and say, “I am the one whom Jesus loves.” Thank you Lord for letting me wear your ring on my finger, and your crown on my head. Beloved, you can declare that too. “It is no longer I that live (this humanity), it is He.” Our kingdom is not of this world. Beloved, this is having a ripple effect, and is going everywhere to awaken all who are asleep.
We are not looking at this day as a calendar event. The Day of the Lord that Jesus told them of is not a calendar event. it is not a specific time on the face of a clock or watch. It is the Spirit Day – it is the Father.
Paul did not refer to the Day of the Lord as the Father consciousness. He described it as the third day or paradise. John in Revelation called it “The Lord’s Day” or “Spirit.” Jesus called it Father because everything came out of the highest power of God or Father, including Jesus who plainly said He came out of His Father and must go to the Father.
Remember Jesus describing His appearing as the “lightning shines from the east to the west?” When lightning shines there is no darkness. The darkness has vanished away. Jesus was speaking precious anointed words of life and the beautiful spiritual affect they have to bring us to a higher light consciousness. Jesus was speaking of a spiritual day.
In the book of Galations Paul was trying to get them to understand their sonship to God the Father. They didn’t get totally what he was saying.
“Howbeit then when you knew not God, you did service to them which by nature are not gods. But now after that you have known God or rather are known of God, how is it that you turn again to weak and beggarly elements whereunto you desire to again be in bondage?… You observe days and months and times and years. I am afraid for you lest I have bestowed labor upon you in vain.” Gal. 4:8-10
The Galations had the same problems that Jews and the people of today have, putting a natural interpretation on the things of God. I see that is exactly what is happening today in the church world. People are observing days, times, months, years and horoscopes.
Under the New Covenant, God does not do things according to the calendar or according to the rotation of the earth on its axis or causing the sunlight to go around the earth. God does things by the Spirit.
God does not observe 40 day periods, 40 month periods, 40 year periods any longer. Under the Old Covenant, He surely did. Now we are come under a New Covenant=Day when Father does things in the Spirit. For some this is very difficult, but we are speaking of the Day of the Lord before going on into the “Day Of The Vengeance Of Our God.”
What is the Day of the Lord? It I the ‘lightning shining from the east unto the west, so shall the coming of the son of man be.” Then when lightning is shown it is shown in the darkness and God called the “light Day,” and He called the “darkness night.”
In Col. 1:12, 13, “Giving thanks to the Father, which has made us qualified us (or made us competent) to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in LIGHT. Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.”
When Jesus was speaking of the Day of the Lord, He was speaking of people coming out of darkness into the light of Father. When Adam fell it was from a light body (Shining One=Lucifer. Lucifer not Satan, Lucifer was Adam. Adam fell from light into the flesh body of darkness. Now in Christ we have a new light body. 2 Cor.5:1-4
Let us continue with some more scripture, and one that is very familiar to most. 1 Thess.4:13, 14 13] “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that you sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14] For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even to them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.”
Here he is not talking about natural things; he is not talking about cemeteries. He is talking to believers about those who have passed on into the invisible, even of Old Testament patriarchs too, how they were going to come into this glorious light of salvation when they lived at a time when there was no permanent atonement. He is saying that you don’t have to worry about the saints of yesteryear. If you believe that Jesus died and rose again, they that sleep, or slept in Jesus – have also been risen with Christ.
You see, when Christ died, and rose, He went into death, or Hades and brought the ones who were in “prison.” 1 Pet.3:19, 20; 4:6. He preached the Gospel to those of olden times who were great sinners, and “Led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men, yea for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them.” Psalm 68:18, Eph. 4:8
Listen to Paul: “For I say this unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming (presence) of the Lord shall not prevent (precede) them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
Paul is basically saying here that those that went before rose first. Now we that are alive and remain, we are caught up with them in the same place in the Spirit – under the New Covenant. He is telling them that there is a great “catching up.” He said, we shall be caught up with them in the “clouds.”
Here Paul is not talking about natural clouds hovering over the earth. Even as on the mount of transfiguration when a cloud appeared, it meant something spiritual.
In the 11th chapter of Hebrews, he mentions the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac Jacob and Moses and many other of great faith in God under the Old Covenant. Then opens the 12th chapter saying:
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great cloud of witnesses…” He was not speaking about rain clouds that hover over the earth these were spiritual clouds, the clouds of witnesses.
Remember Acts one, and Jesus ascending, the bible said, a cloud received him out of their sight.” Could it be the same cloud spoken of in Hebrews 12, or the same cloud that Jesus and the disciples went to on the mount of transfiguration? Or could it be the same cloud mentioned in Revelation 1…”Behold he comes with clouds, and every eye shall see him.”
Spiritually we are “caught up together in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air,” The word “air” does not mean sky. It is the same word used for “breath,” “wind,” “life,” and “spirit.” We are caught up together with them in the spirit. To me this is getting more and more exciting all the time, for our Father is bringing new life to us.
I read once of an old Jewish custom where it was important that when a bridegroom (or man) would become engaged to a woman, he would leave her for a season. Then when he returned, he would return with a shout. “The bridegroom cometh,” he would shout.
Then the bride to be would know that her bridegroom was on his way. Now, it was an old reference that the bridegroom came as a theif in the night. What did he come as a thief for? He came as a thief to steal away that woman from her natural parents so that they two, the bride and bridegroom could be made one. He came to steal her away.
Now doesn’t Christ come to steal us away from the carnal realm of this world? Though our feet walk on terra firma, yet in Christ we are living in the spirit realm. Jesus told the parable of the ten virgins, five were wise, five were foolish, yet they were all pure. The problem was that none knew when the bridegroom was coming. But if they had known Jewish custom, the bridegroom always came at midnight. Then they would not have to have been waiting for him. They would have known that he was coming at midnight.
Why did he come at midnight? It tells how beautifully Christ comes into our lives. There is something different about midnight. Midnight is neither P.M. Nor is it A.M. Midnight is just midnight. It is not yesterday, nor is it tomorrow.
That is why this experience we have with our Father is not something that happened back in the past, and it is not something that is getting ready to happen in the future. Midnight is that space between two days. The Old and the New. But it is the beginning of a brand New Day, the Day of the Lord. You are in the daytime – LIGHT CONSCIOUSNESS of Father, Who is the highest Light. Christ achieved it for us. “We walk in the light even as He is in the light.”
Beloved, let us see how interested Paul was about this subject of the Day of the Lord. “But you brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
You are the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.” 1 Thes. 5:4, 5.
Notice, we are not in darkness – that that day should overtake you – you are not without God the Father. You are in the day time – Light consciousness! You are the children of the light, sons of light in a darkened world. We are sons of light in the day of the Lord. We can rejoice in this, that we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
To see that the day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night, it takes us out of the night time and brings us into daylight. Darkness is of time, Light is eternal. We are not talking about sun, moon and stars. Christ shines in our life as the lightning shines from the east unto the west, so shall the coming of the Son of man be. He shines in us and we begin to see those things which were in darkness, now they are made manifest to us.
“And the city (New Jerusalem which we the redeemed are) had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it, for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it; and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by DAY: for there shall be no night there.” Rev. 21:23-25
Beloved, that speaks of the Lord’s day – Day of the Lord, for He is the light, and in us there is “no night.” We “have no need of the sun and the moon.” “His servants shall serve him: and they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God gives them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.” Rev. 22:3-5
Here it is no longer they that live, but Him. didn’t Jesus say, “He that loses his life (soul life) for my sake shall find it?” Matt. 10:39
It is no longer them but Him, even as Paul, their old identity has vanished. Gal.2:20. And they are clothed in the light of the illuminate Father and lamb.
He is our New Day garment of brightness that no mere man can approach unto. 1 Tim. 6:16
The day of the Lord is not a time slot. It is not a date on the calendar, or anything you can read on anybody’s “time chart.” They will mislead people, for they have put everything into the past or the future. When Christ and Father is LIGHT TODAY. “Today is the day of salvation, now is the accepted time.”
THE DAY OF THE VENGEANCE OF OUR GOD
The day of vengeance speaks of enlightenment, not darkness. if it was what most declare as vengeance, it would be a dark day. Many are seeing great darkness, but I am seeing great light. the day of the vengeance of our God is: The vindication of the Father’s promises unto His people. It is the inner radiation of the Father radiating out through His messengers, bringing illumination of the “word and spirit” that has through the beast nature in man, lain as “dead in the street of the great city, which is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” Rev.11:7 Do you believe that our Lord has been crucified by devilish doctrines of men, and the divisions of Christianity, and that, since His death at Calvary?
“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.” Rev.15:1
“And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven last plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. And one of the four living creatures gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials (bowls) full of the wrath of God, who lives for ever.” Rev.15:6, 7
“And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials (bowls) of the wrath of God upon the earth.” Rev.16:1
Now, beloved, this is being fulfilled within you and I today, and in the body of Christ everywhere by revelation light. We are all dispenser’s of the great truth that Christ is.
These angel messengers are clothed in “pure white linen” and are living, completed (seven) messengers of God. Rev. 19:8 They are girded about the breasts with golden girdles, or girded with divinity. We see the vials are also golden, or having God’s nature and character. Golden girdle about the breast bespeaks the substance and essence of El Shaddi the “breasted One” Who revealed Himself to Abraham. Gen.17:1, Acts 7:2. He is the One who nurtures and sustains His chosen from within. These messengers dispense the same from the heavens within them. There is life substance of Deity from the seven (completed) messengers, they have the “full counsel of God.” They are Truthsayers, not doomsayers.
Women and men “as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.“ Gal.4:14 are coming into possession of Mount Zion as David and his men did. 2 Sam.5:6-8, “The king and his men went to Jerusalem unto the Jebusites, the inhabitants… which said to David, Except you take away the blind and the lame, you shall not come in here: thinking, David cannot come in here.
Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion: the same is the city of David. And David said that day, Whoever goes up to the water shaft (water tunnel), and smites the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind, that are hated of David’s soul, he shall be chief and captain. Wherefore they said, “The blind and the lame shall not come into the house.”
So except we “smite the blind and the lame” inhabitants in the body of Christ, how can we completely possess the Jerusalem and Zion the “City of the Great King?” As David hated (detested) lameness and blindness,” so are we to. And we smite it wherever the Greater David, Jesus the Great King leads us to such conditions. It is not the people he hated, it was the condition.
The blind and lame are those who cannot see the revelation Father is giving today, and can’t walk out His Word. So Father is moving to replace the ‘blind and lame” from the “high places” of teaching His people error. Through illumination by the ‘spirit and word” people are delivered from darkness into light in Christ Jesus and His great kingdom.
The Father’s dealings are in mercy, and those who represent Him also will be tender and merciful. “Mercy triumphs over judgment.” James 2:13 The resurrected Lord resides within, making you a witness of His resurrection and ascension. And you in Him become what He is to multitudes. The Lord’s body is the continuation of Himself in the earth. This revelation of Christ is giving spirit to king and pauper alike. It is bringing them to the same level in Father’s economy in spirit. This word is penetrating desert and jungle, islands and nations. The shed blood of its martyrs cannot turn it aside from its predestined course. Ridicule is fading before its anointed thrust. it ignores the sword and authorities that martyr its elete messengers. The divine truth of this Word and anointing is doing a marvelous work of transformation on great and small. And the old paths of the wilderness are done away. “You shall be called: The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.” Isa. 58:12
In His presence more is done for us in a moment than we could gain in fifty years of study. The same fire that destroys the sinner is the same fire that purifies the saint. Father is summoning His sons to come up into new dimensions saying, “Behold, I make all things new.” Rev. 21:5 There is a new day mode of expression that the Father has set guidelines for spiritual functioning. To be able to function in this day, one must have on the new day garments of truth, one cannot sew the new onto the old, it will tear it apart. Paul put it so aptly: “Stand therefore having your loins girded about with truth.” Eph. 6:14.
A new day has opened to us in the spirit, and we are bidden of Father to this new plane that gives new life in our observance of His appearing within Now. The new truth is a radical move in light of orthodox teaching of Jesus coming to physically catch the saints up to a far away heaven. The kingdom of heaven is not a place afar off, but of consciousness of intimate union with the King of heaven in inward illumination where all is illumined seeing, where all becomes living and operative in the Spirit.
Brothers and sisters, when you look at one another you are looking at one who has been crucified and risen. The saint sees the genesis of themselves in the “Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Rev.13:8. Jesus death was the sovereign purpose of the Father for all creation. The birthright of your new life gave you the prerogative of identification with Christ Jesus in death, burial, resurrection and ascension, and sitting with Him in heavenly places.
Christ’s coming is invisible, and has occurred in His own. John 14:23. Out of the throne of Father within you flows an unremitting river of life as clear as crystal for you to minister to multitudes. Rev.22:1.
“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.” Joel 3:14.
As a consuming fire the Word is being placed in our heart to boldly speak against deception spread as a veil over the face of mankind. Isaiah 25:7, 8
The “word and spirit,” the “two” faithful “witnesses” of the “Lord of the whole earth” are now “standing on their feet,” Rev. 11. And with accuracy will eliminate deception from off the face of the earth. “They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain [kingdom); for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” Isaiah 11:9
The world is in pain, even birth pangs of a heavenly new age being birthed, within myriads of Father’s New Creation man. His firstfruits are birthed out of the earthly into the heavenlies. All creation is in travail for the entering into the higher order of the Spirit, and multitudes are in the valley of decision. God’s kingdom has come within a people, and they walk with His Spirit government ordering the walk of their daily lives. Like David, on their way to the third anointing they have “killed the lion and the bear,” within. 1 Sam.17:37
Father’s people (I think) are seeing the eruptions and disruptions that are disfiguring society. Religiously, cults, occults, witchcraft and downright devil worship. All professing “a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.”
General William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army wrote: “The chief danger of the 20th century will be,
religion without the Holy Ghost. Christianity without Christ. Forgiveness without repentance.
Salvation without regeneration. Politics without God. Heaven without hell.”
We have seen every one of the general’s predictions come true, and now we are in the 21st century. There are armies of lying counterfeit prophets bidding for our attention. It is a war of words, is Armageddon, and we are in the midst of it. You are bombarded on every side by “the mouth of the dragon, and the mouth of the beast, and the mouth of the false prophet.” Rev.16. Take the false prophet, he comes incognito as apostate Christendom.
Everybody has his bid in to straighten this world out. Scientists, scholars, and statesmen. Our schools and colleges and local governments, even the farthest reaches of world politics. Paul admonished us to cast of “vain philosophy that takes you captive, it is mans traditional ideas of the material rather than spiritual, and disregards teachings of Christ. Col.2:8, 9
Father’s firstfruits of the Spirit are breaking the yoke of all religious power on the innocent by the word of truth. Father is purging out the “Stranger” (flesh) from the holy city, which city we all are. We are seeing the ecclesiastical deceptions of the enemy fall through mighty signs and wonders demonstrated by “The Lord’s Christ,” in these great and truly momentous days we are living in. Rev.11:15
The Lordship comes in a people and through a people, from the Spirit Christ Himself. All reigning with Father in His throne are sealed in the first, second and third realms as David was anointed three times to rule as king.
It is “kings and priests’ that constitute His government without end. Isa.9:6, 7, Rev.5:10, 20:4-6
FIRE OF GOD
The fire (pur in Greek) of God, and the judgments of God are not vindictive as we have heard, but are correctional, and redemptive. The fire “pur” is a Greek root word from where we get out English words such as “purge,” “pure,” “purify,” “purification” and others. Natural fire is called by another word in the N.T. Father’s divine fire (pur) does not burn to a crisp the world, the flesh bodies, or anything else.
We have always heard that God’s fire is not good, but it is good for our spiritual health, and maturity. And we have heard that Father’s judgments are not good, but tormenting, and destructive. But we have got Good News for the world at large. If our omniscient Father had not foreseen a good, happy ending for us, He would never dared create. He is that loving, unselfish and kind. “Oh, mine Papa, to me you are so wonderful, so good and kind.”
Look at what the Psalmist said 94:14, 15, “For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.”
Fire (pur) is judgment to destroy error. The same fire that burns up the sinner, is the same fire that purges the saints. Father’s fire (pur) can be love and wrath, depending on where we are walking. “But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and the upright in heart shall be after it.” The upright shall be after judgments of the Father, and Christ. He suffers judgment to come on His people to bless them, to change them, to mature them. In Jude 14, 15 “Behold the Lord comes with myriads of his saints, to execute judgment on all, and to convince all…” Convince all? WOW! So the return of our Father’s judgments are unto righteousness. One cannot separate His love from His judgment. His love is His judgment.
“When God’s judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants learn righteousness.” Isaiah 26:9. “He shall bring forth judgment unto truth.” The divine truth that is in Christ judges all. “He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he has set judgment in the earth.” Isa.42:3, 4 All Father’s sons must under go His judgment, for: “Judgment must begin t the house of God.” 1 Pet. 4:17
Jesus upbraided the Pharisees because they jumped Him about His disciples not washing their hands before eating. He told them that they tithed with exactness, but “pass over judgment and the love of God.” Luke 11:41, 42
Beloved, don’t despair of your Father’s judgments, welcome them as did David in Ps. 119:20, “My soul breaks for longing that it has unto your judgments at all times.” Judgments do not save us; they bring us to ourselves as with the Prodigal son.
Beloved, we minister out of the inexhaustible riches of Christ’s resurrection life in us to the inhabitants of “heaven,” “earth,” and the “sea.” Proclaiming of the Gospel is judgment bringing salvation to the prisoners of all of the mind and spirit’s dark realms. The Adam death is the state of unperception, the unseen, that is the realm called, “flesh” or carnal. The carnal mind is death. And mankind has been in that state since he was “drove out” from Eden into the outer realm. Gen.3:24. The outer realm is the carnal state, called, flesh. That is not the flesh that covers one. It is deep within where enmity may reside. Though Adam did take on a flesh garment. Not the skin of animals.
“His judgments are to be desired more than the honey, and the honey-comb.”
It is a known fact that fire in the natural changes one substance into another one. And divine fire (pur) changes us from one substance into another. “You were darkness, but now are light in the Lord.” Nothing is truly destroyed even if consumed by fire. All of its elements remain somewhere, this we learn in studying the teaching of conservation of energy in college. After they are burned in fire, they appear in a new form. Yet their essence has always been from time immemorial.
Beloved, stay with me, this is going to get good as we explore this deeper.
He said, “Eye has not seen nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man the things that God has prepared for them that love him.
But he has revealed them to us by the Spirit. For the Spirit searches (explores) all things, yea, the deep things of God.” I love for the Spirit to take me on explorations into “heights, and depths, and widths, and breadths” of His excellent ways of understanding.
“Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you formed the earth and the world, even from age to age (literal), you are Elohim (God). You turn man to destruction; and say, Return, you children of men.” Psalm 90:1-3
There is a law of circularity that Father has decreed that “all things” would return to Him after self will is conquered through judgments and grace of His gospel (Good News). All worlds and suns have circles for their pathway, and truth of every kind has its circular orbit. I read that: “This law of circularity runs through all nature.”
“For out of him (God), and through him, and (back) into him are all things. Rom.11:36 So therein the circle is accomplished, and the end returns to its beginning. Jesus said, “The first shall be last, and the last shall be first.”
Our Father can, “Turn man to destruction, and say, Return to me you children of men,” for I am Love, Mercy and Grace. Ps. 90:3. It comes through Jesus Christ who is Truth personified, who “tasted death for every man.” Paying the penalty for the sin of all mankind. Heb.2:10.
The Bible is a book of inner truth that the sensory body of outer knowledge cannot attain to. Knowledge of facts amassed by the sense organs is not the revelation of Christ Jesus, and is of little value.
Beloved, “Old wine skins cannot hold the new wine, the old wine skin will burst, and the new wine spills onto the earth.” “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” New truth transforms the mind; it is like beheading the old of the letter of the word. Truth slays the “old man and his deeds.” This slaying is not external, it is within. It is, “The vengeance of our God.” Have you ever heard of the vengeance of God killing men? It beheads the “Old Man” and his nature, “the man of sin” falls away. Thes. 2.
Everything that people depend on besides Elohim God is going to be changed. All bible concepts, and ideas not revealed by the Father is going to be slain by the word and spirit, which is His “two witnesses” and the “two edged sword.” Father is not destroying people, He is only interested in their belief concerning His Truth. Did you know that His Truth has a name? Even as the “Tree Of Life” has a name. It is Christ Jesus the Lord, and “first born of all.” “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God.” John. 1.
The Father’s knowledge has pierced the night in us, showing “light unto our feet” to depart from the state of darkness in the “old man and his deeds.” Darkness is a state of stumbling, all the external religious props, letter of the word error, and falsehood, which the truth sets one free of.
John said, “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.” Rev. 15:1
This was in heaven (Spirit), and it was “GREAT AND MARVELOUS.” There was not anything that he saw to cause consternation and fear. They have Truth which will set the idolaters free from their curse of denominational disunity of idolatry of man. The seven messengers declare the proclamation of emancipation to earth (earth bound believers. Those in the “prison houses of “classical dispensationalism,”) and its teachings of future rewards, and inheritance of a far away heaven. The seven messengers declare a red hot message from the throne of Father and the lamb in them (speaking not second hand, but first hand word of Him in them.)
Believers in Christ have been so orientated with external religion that they have no real spiritual enlightenment. They have got saved, baptized, filled with the Holy Spirit, and they are on their way to heaven, and that is it for most. Most of Father’s dear children have never heard their Father speak, and perhaps would wonder what was going on if they did hear Him. Yet, under the Old Covenant we read where the prophets wrote, “The word of the Lord came unto me, saying…” Oh, beloved, that the ministers of our Father would hear His voice and say, “The word of the Father came unto me, saying…”
We have to quote what God said to Moses four thousand years ago under the Old Covenant. We quote what God said to David, and Solomon. We quote what the New Covenant writers said two thousand years ago. Where is the Word of God today?? Hidden in the Book? What hog wash! “God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them, and has put in us the word of reconciliation.” (Literal) 2 Thes. 5:19
God has put in us the Word of Reconciliation. God the Father is speaking out of His temple today Rev. 16:1. And the Word is clothed in flesh (earthen vessels), yet the word has no boundaries. Ps.19:1-6. The Word of the Father today resides in His sons, for it is Father’s word speaking.
The “vials” that the messengers pour out is truth motivated by Father’s love, and accompanied by His mercy and grace. Father’s word, “spirit and truth” is a “plague” to those in apostasy and careless. Father tells us through Paul that He would in the oncoming eons display the transcendent riches of His GRACE to us in Christ Jesus.
“God who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, has quickened us together with Christ, (by grace you are saved); And has raised us up together, and made us to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus; That is the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.” Eph. 2:4-7
We were in a gathering in our living room, and I saw Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and un-numbered saints of ages past gathered around the throne worshipping our Father, and the scripture that Jesus spoke came to me:
“I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.” Matt. 8:11
I knew at that moment that there was no time, now space in the kingdom of heaven (spirit). They are with us, and we worship our Father with them. Rev. 5:13. And we are all standing before the “judgment seat of Christ” in this very present moment in time, as Father’s word goes out. For it is spirit and word, and cannot be boxed up behind four walls, but goes out into the ether waves of the Spirit.
Beloved, what a day of destiny, and purpose! Father has called and chosen us to a destiny and purpose higher than any generation since creation. Abba is continually calling us unto Himself. We are bid of Him to come up into the Son realm where no dragon abides.
In the Spirit we behold the pure spotless luminescent city of Father and the Lamb. Here in the Spirit we are seated above principalities and powers, in the “third heaven” within, and manifesting Christ beyond former heavens of the church realm. When Father brings a new Word in the Spirit, it is judgment on the old heavens.
“Thou Lord, in the beginning did lay the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands; They shall perish, but you remain, and they all shall wax old as does a garment; And as a vesture you shall fold them up, and they shall be changed: but you are the same, and your years shall not fail.” Heb.1:10-12
All the denominational heavens we were caught up in have grown old, and are being folded up as an old garment, and laid aside. He said that after He had folded them up, they would be changed. The people will be, and are being changed, not the structure they were in. I was in a Pentecostal structured belief system, and Christ gave me a face lift, to look like my Father.
I no longer impute my brothers and sister transgressions to them. Didn’t Jesus say: “Whose-so-ever sins you remit, they are remitted unto them…” Jn.20:23
My sisters and brothers, after I read the book, “Prayer Walker,” by John Gruver it changed the way I think of things. John has gone all over the world and the Holy Spirit shows him where sins need to be remitted, and he has seen results of his speaking the word of remittance. In one country, the Spirit took John to a waste land where no vegetation would grow. And wars had been fought there, with blood baths everywhere. And because of this nothing but a waste howling wilderness since. John began remitting the sins of the combatants, and warriors. And left, but the next year he was sent back there, and what a change, the whole place had become green of vegetation, and was useful for farming, and animals to feed on. What a testimony of Father’s Grace and love.
Our son, Ron was always a wild one. He lived for cars, wine, women and song. He was always belligerent, and was in trouble, even with the law. Our prayers seemed hopeless, year after year. When I saw the truth of remitting sins, I began to remit Ron’s. And shortly began to see results.
Two years ago we had gatherings of family here in the living room, and Ron worked for Don, our other son who owns a business. One day Ron told Don, “I want to go to Dad’s, I want him to save me.” Don told him to go to the church down the street from their house. Ron said, No, I want dad to save me.” Don called me, telling me about this, and I told him to bring Ron up here. And he did, and as we prayed for him, his heart was broken before our Father, crying out with tears, and Ron was transformed from that moment. He was living with a woman, and I didn’t have to tell him anything. He left her after they talked it over. He has never seen happier days, for the Son of God is in his life.
That my beloved, is the power of “Remitting Sin.” John 20:23.
The “third heaven” reality is here. No man can impede it; no devil, or principality or power can disannul it – for Abba Father’s will is behind it, and He is searching men and women’s hearts to join in agreement with Him. You don’t have to understand it to agree. “How can two walk together except they be agreed.” The knowledge that He will ultimately draw His people near to Himself in this Day of The Vengeance of our God releases faith in their hearts for the New Day anointing and ingathering.
Beloved, for the most part through the ages since the early church Father’s, people have lived in the tolerance and blessings of the all-embracing ingredient called, “the Grace of God.” And we have not been fully conscious of all the implications of His Grace. We are in the oncoming ages since Paul’s inspired pen lettered these magnificent, august words implanted in his heart by the Holy Spirit. Oh, beloved, the riches of Father’s “mercy,” and the transcendent riches of His grace in His kindness to us. And the greatness of His love wherewith He saved us.
Did you notice the threefold “togetherness in Christ” and “with Christ” written there? You were “raised up together, and made to sit together in the heavenlies in Christ.” (Ch. 4) This threefold togetherness means that you are complete in Him who is the Head of ALL principality (authority) and power. Col. 2:10. So there was to be a “showing”, a ‘displaying” of God’s grace in the oncoming eons, and that to earth’s inhabitants at large, and Christendom in general. And the trumpet is sounding, “Now is the accepted time; today is the day of salvation.”
The word of truth that Father’s messengers speak today is judgment against the apostate system called by the Lord’s name, just as Jesus word spoke judgment against the religious system of His day. Father likens her false teachings, her denominational sects, and divisions unto “A noisome and a grievous sore,” and those within her as: “men which had the mark of the beast… which worshipped his image.” Rev.16:2
Whatever kingdom that places its image on one, controls his thinking processes. Those hearing the TRUTH of the “golden vials” lose their head over the “Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world,” just as John the Baptist did when he saw Jesus, John’s true Head had come. The kingdom that places its image on one, if it is a personal kingdom, it has mans mark on it. They have their own language of identification among themselves. Marked identified by words they speak, by dress, and to the very “jot and title” of all their teaching. They are outer actions of inner images. Wresting of the truth produces a false image-the opposite of Christ the Lord.
“The Greeks seek wisdom, and the Jews seek signs,” Paul said, but the greatest sign and truth today is not raising the physical dead, and healing the sick that they may die again, and go to their graves. The greatest today is manifesting the truth that Christ is. Becoming one whom Christ is formed in. Gal. 4:19.
“Present truth” raises the dead, it opens the blind eyes, and unstops deaf ears, and Father’s Spirit and truth makes the lame to walk again. And our “old heavens and earth burn up” in His presence. And Father creates “new heavens and earth” within you that shall not pass away. Isa.65:16-19, 2 Pet. 3:13, Rev.21:1.
That is the Vengeance of God today. In Isaiah 35 we read, “The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them, and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.” The wilderness and solitary place shall be glad for THEM!!! Who is them?? Who is the wilderness and the solitary place?
It is Christendom who is in a “famine for the hearing of the word of the Lord.” Amos 8:11. And the “them” spoken of are you whom the Father has apprehended for “the high calling of God in Christ” today. You are his sons whom “creation is groaning for,” and are “glad for them.” They “shall be glad and blossom as the rose.” We as Paul “travail in birth until Christ be formed in you,” Gal. 4:19, for them as we reach out to the desert and solitary places of Christianity and the whole world.
Jesus death on the cross was vengeance to the “Old man” and his deeds, it was a recompense to the flesh man. God’s vengeance is like His fire, it is not punitive and destructive, it consumes all corruption from before His presence. “A fire goes before him and burns up his enemies round about Him.” Ps. 97:3. Our God has Fathered sons into His likeness so they may set creation free from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. Rom. 8:19.
You are no longer men as the world knows men, but appear as angels, but not the winged kind, as theologians teach, yet you are Christ’s angelic host. Even the angels – messengers that removes all that offends out of the kingdom. Matt.13:38-41. Such angels are of the heavenly realm and cannot be called men any longer. You are not of the earth now and are full of light as is your Father, and the Lamb. Acts 7:53, Heb.1:7, Gal. 4:14. You are the out-raying of the Father of light. And He has destined that the angel ministry harvest all into the “one hundred fold” realm. And minister the kingdom and lift the church out of its present order into the kingdom, and there shall be no more scandals in the kingdom of the Father. Matt. 13:37-43.
“Had not God seen a glorious end, he would not have dared create.” We have attributed fury to God, but He relates, “There is no fury in me.” Isaiah 27:4. Man visions an apocalyptic holocaust, whereas Father the All Omniscient One has prepared for a new Day of Glory and beauty for all people.
I had this vision: 12 young men sitting on chairs, 3 rows of 4. They all looked exactly alike. Each had a business mans haircut. Hair was dark. Each wore a red sports looking coat. They all had a golden trumpet in their hands, held right in front of their lips, as if ready to sound the trumpets. They were sitting on a platform. What a magnificent vision it was. Twelve is the kingdom number of divine government. Red signifies the blood (life) of the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. Jn.1:29. Signifying the Life of Deity in and upon their breasts. The golden trumpets signified that Father God Himself was to speak His oracles to humanity. Oh, one more thing, the young men looked to be thirty years old. Thirty bespeaks maturity. A mature king priest nation is arising to proclaim Christ Jesus majesty in the Father, to bring “all things under one Head, even the Anointed One – the things in the heavens and the things on the earth, in Him.” Eph. 1:10
Beloved, ours is not running to attain or win as sons, Jesus attained and won for us. Ours is simply that we are “co-laborers with Abba Father.” Thus, resulting in our intimacy with Him, not the means of our gaining intimacy with Him. It is a result of eternal life that we joyfully enter into Father’s labor, not a means of attaining eternal life. Our attaining is not because of behavior; our attainment is intimacy with Father. Now we have an unconstrained desire to please our Abba of love. As a fawn pants after the “waterbrooks,” so our heart pants in anticipation of responding in love to our luminous loving Father.
Last writing we quoted Isaiah 35:3-7 “Strengthen the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: Behold your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense: he will come and save you. Then…notice the “thin.” Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out.”
Beloved, can we not see that He is saying that the vengeance of God is coming to save mankind, not destroy? For then He opens the blinded eyes, ears, the lame walks again, the tongue of the dumb sings, waters break out our wilderness. Did not all these things happen when our Father drew us unto Himself? That was the vengeance of our God on the sinful condition of the “old man” nature we had. Thank our Father we are free, because of Jesus.
Look at what Jesus said, “He that believes on the Son has everlasting life, and he that believes not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:36
Now the Amplified: “But instead the wrath of God abides on him – God’s displeasure remains on him, his indignation hangs over him continually.” Can we not see the wrath of God abiding in the unbelievers consciousness, is already on him, as well as all Adam’s lineage. it continues in his consciousness until he turns to Christ. It is the wrathful lower nature, the attitude of all not knowing Christ.
Jesus “came to Nazareth… and… went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. And there was delivered to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when he had opened the book, he found where it was written,
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, and set at liberty those that are bruised, To preach the acceptable (favorable) year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and gave it to the attendant, and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were looking intently at him. And he began to say unto them, Today is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.” Luke 4:16-21
HE PROCLAIMED HIS MINISTRY IN THE FOLLOWING ORDER:
1. He anointed me to preach the gospel (glad tidings) to the poor.
2. He sent me to heal the broken hearted.
3. To preach deliverance to the captives.
4. And recovery of sight to the blind.
5. To set at liberty those that are bruised.
6. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Jesus read these six things and “closed the book.” And six is short of the scripturally perfect number seven. And yet there is more to the “Lord and His Christ’s ministry.
In Isaiah 61:2 “And the day of the vengeance of our God, to comfort all that mourn.”
Beloved, I hope that you can see what is being said here: “The day of the vengeance of our God (is) to comfort all that mourn.”
Verse 3, “To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes.”
To give “beauty for ashes” for those who mourn in Zion is the vengeance of our God in the New Covenant era. The Old Testament syndrome of a wrathful God has been carried over into the New, and this image of our loving, merciful Father is being crushed by the Lord’s Christ. Yes, Jesus Christ’s ministry continues today. It is proclaimed in His body, and out to the world.
When James and John asked Jesus if he wished them to call fire down from heaven on the Samaritans that would not receive Him, Jesus rebuked the two brothers, saying: “You know not what spirit you are of…for the Son of man has come not to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.” Luke 9:54-56
The Father’s word is vengeance, chastisement, and purging to those who continue in deception, and rebellion. His word is a fire (pur) that transforms the thinking, beliefs, concepts and even attitudes. And as my friend Stacy Wood says, “It is the good news of the happy God.” 1 Tim. 1:11
What is the vengeance of our God? What is His chastening? Some teach falsely that He is angry at our least infraction, and is ready to fry us. And that Jesus is coming to fight against a powerful antichrist madman. A fictitious personage that theologians have created out of the carnal interpretation of scripture. Causing masses of people to think that some earthly person can war against God. Christendom is madly in love with the false teachings (tares) that Matthews 24 is yet to be fulfilled. When It was fulfilled in AD 70. Josephus the Jewish historian was an eye witness to what happened, and wrote it down in detail. Jesus even said, “This generation (the generation they were living in when He said it) shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled.”
And Luke 21:22 “For these be the days of vengeance; that all things written may be fulfilled.” Here Jesus says the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple, all the Old was brought to an end-fulfilled! All written of Old concerning God’s vengeance was fulfilled in 70 AD, according to Jesus. No more laws written in stones to guide our lives, animal sacrifices. No more natural retribution against wrong doers.
Saints, there is a corrective realm for base sinners, yet no one is lost forever. The consequences of every sin is in its own seed. “What-so-ever a man shall so, that shall he also reap.” Our Father laid down the law of sowing and reaping. Many legendary and classic bible stories of theology will have to be discarded or altered to fit into the drastic change that is at hand.
Here I will quote J. Preston Eby: “We have been prone, in every step forward in God, to bring a lot of baggage out of our former realm along with us. I brought that apocalyptic baggage, that end-time consciousness of the world events, of horrendous events that were going to happen outside of me, out here in this world that doesn’t know God, as though that had something to do with the kingdom that God was bringing forth.
“You see, I never understood that judgment is given to the saints of the Most High. God is not in the business of judging nations in the sense that we think of judgment as vengeful wrath. God did that in the Old Covenant. God dealt with all nations in relation to Israel under law. And God brought judgment on nations.
“God not judge nations under the New Covenant. Now hear me. There is a law of sowing and reaping, and that is true for every man. If you sow a seed, you will reap that seed, whether it is good or evil. There is a sowing and reaping in my life. I will reap what I sow. If I sow to the flesh, I will of the flesh reap corruption (Gal. 6:8), and it will happen every time. It is an inviolable law. That’s why I tremble today for America, for America is sowing to the wind, and if America continues to the wind, it will reap the whirlwind. But I want you to hear me: that is not the judgment of God that is merely the law of sowing and reaping. Every nation sows, every nation reaps. Every denomination sows, and every denomination reaps. But that is not the wrath of God.
“The wrath of God today is the wrath of the Lamb. It is a redemptive wrath. It is a corrective wrath. It is a judgment that is unto redemption. It is the wrath of the Lamb. Who ever heard such a thing, of a lamb that that had vengeance? It is a redemptive wrath unto salvation, and that salvation is planted in a people. God is dealing with the nations today unto salvation. And it doesn’t matter what happens, God is ministering unto His people a redemptive manifestation, unto the, unto the nations of the earth. Hallelujah.
So we have an economic collapse, it is not the judgment of God; it is reaping what we sowed. The judgment of God is in His saints. The judgment of God is corrective, redemptive. The judgment of God is the wrath of the Lamb. The judgment of God is the seven spirit of God, sent into all the earth. That is where the judgment of God is. And you know what the angel said to John? In all the letters to the seven churches, at the beginning of every letter, he said this. In the King James version, it says, ‘Unto the angel of the church, write…”
Now remember that I said to you that we bring a lot of baggage, and the baggage that I brought was that these seven angels of the seven churches were pastors. Have you ever heard that? I have probably read two hundred books on the book of Revelation. I have listened to scores and scores of tapes on the book of Revelation. And at least 99% of the time, they told me that the seven angels were the pastors of the seven churches. Well, first of all, in those days they didn’t have pastors. They had elders, but hay didn’t have “the pastor.” They had ministry, but they didn’t have “the pastor.”
I would say that I don’t see how any translator could have translated this “Unto the angel of the church, write…,” and every translation that I have seen, except one, says the same thing. But is you look at the word in the Greek, you find that in almost every case in the New Testament, it is translated “by”, not “unto.” So the angel was not saying to John, “Write to the pastor to tell the church that I have this for them and this against them.” That wasn’t the message at all. What it says in the Greek is, “By the angel of the church, write…” And the seven angels are the seven spirits that were the seven lamps. They are the seven lamps that were the seven eyes and the seven horns. They are the seven angels that were the seven stars. But now he says, By the angel…they
What is an angel? A messenger. In other words, what we are talking about is a word. God says, “I am sending a word. It is a word of my Spirit. It is out of the seven fold Spirit of my nature, of my own mind, of my own power, of my own glory. I send a word, John, by the angel, by the Spirit, by the anointing, by the operation of God in you, write this word, send this word to the churches. Don’t write something to the pastor, but in the Spirit, and by the Spirit send the word.
“He communicated it by the Spirit, and that is the word that is in our midst today. It is the word that comes by the anointing, by the spirit of wisdom, by revelation, by the illumination, by the mighty God, that penetrates your heart and brings forth in you the revelation of Jesus Christ.
We have been going from grade to grade, from realm to realm, from dimension to dimension in God. Moving through the Tabernacle and all its compartments. We have been moving through the feasts, and now God has brought us to the feast of Tabernacles. He has brought us to the third day. He has brought us to the Most Holy place. And to the throne within the City, that has the glory of God. We have been passing through the grades, and all creation must pass through the same grades.
God has plenty of time. God’s plan is the plan of the ages. It all began ages ago, and it will extend ages into the future, and yet every one of us are a microcosm of the macrocosm. There are ages within us. I lived out a Pentecostal age, and it ended. I lived out a Latter Rain age and it ended too. I lived out an Apocalyptic age, and God took that heaven and rolled it up….
“The next thing on the agenda is the manifestation of the sons of God. And it doesn’t come by us trying to get Christ manifested…The work is finished… God told us years ago that He would do a work that no one would believe though it were told us, and it has been told us, and we still don’t believe it. I am telling you again, Christ in you is the hope of glory. You are dead. You have been quickened. You are raised up. You are seated in heavenly places. You are the Son of God, manifest in human flesh. God has finished the work, and the hour of the unveiling has come.
“God is beginning to give us the understanding, the correct perception that He is beginning to strip away. If you follow through the book of Revelation, all it is, is a removal. Everything there is getting shaken, everything is passing away. Under the first trumpet, a third of the trees are burned up. All the grass is burned up. (Is that the hay, wood and stubble? Scott). The third part of the sea turns to blood, the third part of the creatures in the sea dies, the third part of the ships are destroyed, the third part of the rivers and the springs turn to blood, and the third part of the sun turns to darkness, the third part of the moon and the stars are darkened, the third part of men are killed by fire and smoke and brimstone.
And you go a little further over, and all of them pass away. All trees are burned up, all the mountains flee away, every island flees, and in the end there is no more sea – everything there passes away. Babylon falls and is burned with fire, and there is nothing left, except the Lamb that is in the throne, in the midst of the glory of God. And… none of it is happening out there. Every bit of it is happening in you.” Unquote. By, J. Preston Eby.
Beloved, the painful evasions, the multiple fallacy of the teaching that all mankind reconciled to God through Christ, means ninety-five percent is turned over to the devil, when it is written: “All things in heaven and in earth gathered together in Christ” Eph.1:10, simply means the final perdition of all who have not heard the name of Jesus? The concept of the popular creed, that God has detailed through scripture His own horrid defeat, mans sin is too much for Him, the blood of the cross was not sufficient? And that the devil has actually took supremacy over God and took most of His creation leaving God a small remnant. Thus darkening God’s character, wisdom, power and integrity forever – by a hideous hell fire. And God’s Son defeated in His incalculable endeavor. NO! Absolutely not! Christ Jesus is the Alpha and Omega the Beginning and the End, the First and Last. “Where sin abounded, Grace super abounded” over and above sin, robbing it of it’s horrors. And Christ is the life that was and is victorious over every level of death, barring none! Our Father God and Savior Redeemer has triumphed over evil. As a “Wise master builder” he counted the cost, foreseeing that the end would be glorious for His creation, and not pain and sorrow. His loving vengeance is totally redemptive.
The same fire (pur) that destroys the sinner is the same fire (pur) that purifies the saints. The same fire of vengeance that destroyed the Old you and I, is the same fire that made us saints.
Beloved, I have got to stop and shout and dance for joy. The end.
Love and hugs,
DAY OF THE VENGEANCE OF OUR GOD, Chapters 1-7 [Scott Paris] 1
