Rudy Jones: Notes on The “Isaiah 61” Ministry
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD... that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. And they shall build the old wastes, they
shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.” (Is. 61:1-5)
We have just this week (11/10/01) returned from the most eye opening, enlightening, and potentially ministry transforming experience of our lives! We were able to observe a dimension of the “Reconciliation of All Things” as it relates to Personal Salvation which I view as “Tabernacles In Operation.” I had not before understood how Tabernacles would function as the Kingdom of Heaven within... until now.
Pastor John Kowalczyk and about 30 experienced, dedicated volunteers at the Ministry House called “Isaiah 61” are seeing “miraculous” results: People are being released and set free from bondage to inherited emotional trauma that is stored in the “prison” cells of their chromosomes in their cellular DNA! This is happening daily at “Isaiah 61” and this has been happening for over 5 years.
I was invited by Pastor John to teach the Tabernacle to the staff at “Isaiah 61” and to his Church, but I quickly discerned that the four of us who had traveled to Erie, Pennsylvania, were the students. We found ourselves privileged to observe a ministry that is truly dedicated and more interested in “building” CHRIST WITHIN the individuals as their “TRUE IDENTITY,” rather than constructing a big Church organization. They have a wonderful worship assembly but every participant is fully aware that their ministry is directed to individual spiritual growth.
This Reconciliation Ministry is based on Pastor Kowalczyk’s insight and discernment of the Psalms where King David, a man after God’s own Genetics (Heart), stated by Divine Revelation: “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold Thou [O God] desirest Truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part Thou [O God] shalt make me to know wisdom.” (Psalms 51:5-6) “Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputed NOT iniquity.” (Psalms 32:2) “I acknowledge my sin [my ignorance of Christ as my Truth] unto Thee, and mine iniquity have I NOT hid... and Thou [Oh LORD] forgavest the iniquity of my sin” (Psalms 32:5). “Sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” (Hebrews 10:17)
“Holy Spirit of Truth, please open the eyes of our
understanding to see the mystery of iniquity.”
“Iniquity,” as Pastor John was given understanding and according to the credible definition of Strong’s Concordant Dictionary, is clearly a reference to “inherited genetic propensities.” Iniquity is the Hebrew word “Avan,” Strong’s #5771: from the root word “Ownah,” #5772 which means “to dwell together, sexual, cohabitation, i.e. conception.” Also, the word “shapen” is the Hebrew word “chiyl,” Strong’s #2342, which means “ to twist or whirl, (in a circular or spiral manner)” -- a perfect allusion to the spiral helix of the DNA.
My literal translation of Psalm 51:5,6... “Behold, I was shapen in the circular memory of the spiral helix in the DNA with my ancestral propensities and experiences. I was conceived with a bent toward falling away from the glory of God even from conception.”
What is the relevance between the insight found in Psalms and the results seen at the “Isaiah 61” Ministry? Heredity. Webster defined the word heredity as ”inheritance; the transmission of characteristics of parents to off-spring.” Our Heavenly Father designed the “life” structure of our cellular house to be a repository of ancestral genetic history. Every event and every emotional experience of your ancestors is recorded in great detail in your DNA and influences your bent toward life.
We learned through our research that our bodies are composed of a myriad of cells which contain chromosomes; rod shaped structures which house our genes. The chromosomes are like libraries and the genes are like books containing the daily diaries of our ancestors. Genes determine our sex and every characteristic we inherit from our ancestors. A gene is a basic unit of heredity. It consists of a specific sequence of DNA or RNA that occupies a fixed position on a chromosome. DNA is the chemical substance that carries genetic information and is responsible for passing along hereditary characteristics from one generation to the next. It is a molecular structure in the form of a twisted double strand, which looks like a twisted spiral ladder, and is called a helix. I believe that this is what Jacob was shown in his dream of the ladder to heaven.
The truth revealed to our generation is that the DNA is a “library” of genetic information, that describes in intricate detail our “book of life,” which includes every emotional trauma in our ancestors’ “book of life” along with their beneficial abilities or aptitude, i.e. arts and talents -- but, we are shapen and inhibited by their hurts and disappointments.
We receive our DNA through the conceptive “cohabitation” of our father’s male sperm and our mother’s female egg. We were conceived in sin; i.e. in the darkened ignorance of the Truth of CHRIST. We inherited the carnal
flesh nature from our Adamic parents, which overwhelmed our Spiritual Truth, and left us in darkness. Darkness is ignorance to the Truth of CHRIST as our Light. We were born “spiritually dead,” imprisoned in the genetic record of ancestral trespasses and sin; i.e. the Adam flesh nature. But, CHRIST (our Anointed Life) translated us out of sin’s darkness into His (Christ’s) Marvelous Light (understanding) of Sonship with our Spiritual Father. CHRIST raised us to newness of True Life and made us a New Creation.
My understanding, at this point, of the ministry of “Isaiah 61” is that people with uncontrollable “tendencies from inherited iniquity” such as: depression, hurt, rejection, abandonment, lust, hatred, bitterness, spite, negativity, greed, ego-driven ambitions, etc., etc., etc., etc., are being guided to discover the “root” of their problem in their ancestry and then to invite Christ the Lord within them, to heal the problem in the root of their ancestry; i.e. to “Save and heal them.” The incredible, awesome experience of the seeker is that the person is set free from the power of the “anti-christ personality” which has held them and their ancestor in a prison. Jesus “CHRIST” opens the prison doors and the captives go free (Isaiah 61). When the ancestor whose record of despair in the DNA of the Seeker for Christ’s Salvation is made whole, the Seeker is also set free; they share the same Life Record in the DNA.
Can you say Haleluiah!
The mystery of iniquity has been secreted, hidden until now, awaiting those who are prepared to be Heirs of the Birthright. (The Birthright, “the first born,” is responsible to make sure that every member of his “Household” hears the “Will of the Father.”) Psalms 32, Psalms 51, and along with Romans 8:20; “For the creature [mankind] was made subject to vanity [void of the Truth], not willingly [not by an act of their own will], but by reason of Him [The Creator] who hath subjected the same [mankind] in hope, because the creature [creation] itself also shall be delivered from the [genetic] bondage of corruption [corruptibility, decay] into the glorious liberty of [like unto] the children of God.” (Romans 8:20-21) This scripture reveals that it was the plan of the Creator to subject mankind to iniquity. This insight releases mankind from condemnation.
“There is therefore
NOW no condemnation
to them which are IN Christ Jesus...”
The Creator has subjected us ALL to vanity [helplessness, depravity, perversion] so that we could only fulfill our Hope of Salvation from our condition, in Christ Jesus our Lord. Christ is our Hope. “Christ in you,” is your Hope (of glorious liberty) of “glory.” Your HOPE is Christ in you.
The Ministry of Jesus Christ is the Ministry of Reconciliation; guiding man (kind) into the discovery of our Truth. Our Truth of who we are is only found in the Messiah, the Christ, the Anointing, the Seed of Abraham. And Christ is in you. Christ is who you really are. Your life, without [recognizing] Christ as your life, is vanity. “For you are saved by Hope.” (Romans 8:24) Hope is Christ, Christ in you is the hope.
“God was in Christ,
RECONCILING the world unto Himself.”
(2nd Corinthians 5:11)
Praise God for the pioneering work at “Isaiah 61” in Erie, Pennsylvania. Now we can understand the great need for the Melchizedec Priesthood, released from chronological time; no beginning and no end. Selah--
