THE POLLUTION OF GOD’S WORD
BY: LINDA KEITH
Father is so good to speak to us and let us know the things that He not only wants us to know, but to do, what He wants. He has been speaking to me of late, about, how “resting” in Him, is “resting in the assurance of the HIS Words that He HAS shown us.”
A little over a month or so ago, He said to me, “I keep saying COME, and my people keep saying “wait.”
The latest teachings of some, usually tell us, “wait, it’s all is in His Timing”. And there is a truth in that. He has been showing me that, WE ARE HIS TIMING. Sadly to say, even in the Kingdom teachings, we have been living on PAST teachings.
We have a God that is an ever-moving God. When we don’t move with Him, we stay on the manna of yesterday.
Hosea 6:1-3 says, “COME, RETURN unto the Lord… (2) after two days will HE revive us:”
Some are “RETURNING UNTO THE LORD”. This does not mean a world-wide revival!! It means an individual revival, in those who are listening to HIS WORDS, not man’s.
“IN THE THIRD DAY He will raise us up, and we shall LIVE IN HIS SIGHT.”
We are in the third day. He is wanting to raise us up. I believe that the “pollution” of teaching of the Word, has held us back from doing the very WORKS that our Pattern did, Jesus. We have not truly, “rested” in the assurance of His Word. He is, NOW, leading us into a relationship that many have not solely committed to.
Amos 5:4-6, “For thus saith the Lord unto the House of Israel, (which we are) Seek ye me, and ye shall live; BUT SEEK NOT THE HOUSE OF BETHEL.”
The House of Bethel, means THE HOUSE OF GOD! Which, we are taught, that our local churches are the House of God. He is wanting us to seek HIM, not teachings from the church, or man. Because, up until NOW, even the men that He called, has mixed HIS WORD with THEIR words.
He wants us to come ONLY to Him for teachings of PURE, UNPOLLUTED WORD. Now, I’m not saying, that we are to stop having fellowship, and sharing, and LOVING regardless of who won’t accept the Word, that He is bringing forth, we are to have fellowship. I am, also, not saying that what Father is giving, today, will be an easy Word, for a lot to accept. But, as we know, the more of the manifesting of HIM, through us, the more separated we may become, from some of the brethren, and many will not WANT the fellowshipping. But, that’s ok. Father knows what He is doing.
He is bringing a people, out of a people, who will not “take counsel, but of HIM” and will not be “covered with a covering, but of HIS SPIRIT,” so that “sin will (not) be added to sin.”
I believe that these, that are hearing these words from Father, will take His Word, Eat His Word, Digest His Word, and will BELIEVE HIS WORD, regardless of any past or present teaching and they will DO the works that Jesus did and greater works. I believe that Father is beginning to FULLY be seen through His People. I hope that this sharing, brings SPIRITUAL COUNSELING of Father, and a SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING and a SPIRITUAL DETERMINATION, to be included in the Body that show forth ONLY HIM.
I want to share some things that Father is showing me, regarding the polluted Word.
The natural earth is a picture of what Father has done, is doing and will do, in His House of earthen vessels. When we understand the first 2 chapters of Genesis and , also, Calvary, we will see that, “It is finished.”
We are to call things, as He says they ARE, not to call them as they will be.. (As a man thinketh, in thinking, so IS he.” (Prov 23:7). Out of the abundance of the HEART, the mouth SPEAKS. (Luke 6:45)
Father’s Word says, that when He brought us unto salvation, He wrote His Word in our HEART AND IN OUR MIND!! (Heb 8:10, PS 37:31).
Man has put different names on things. Like: name it and claim it; or grab it and blab it. Hearing them has stopped many from bringing forth what may have been shown, to them, because, they do not want people labeling them with these names. As for me, you’d better believe, that if Father shows me a truth, yep, I’m going to name it and claim it, regardless of the thoughts of others. Following Him is VERY much more important than following man.
I want to make myself very clear, on the issue of the Holy Spirit. There is NO DOUBT IN ME, that without the working of the Holy Spirit within, these earthen vessels would remain “without form and void, and darkness will be upon the face of (our) deep.” But, I want to share what I feel Father is showing me. We DO HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY on us, as to what His Word says. If Father says, “do”, then we are to do. He has placed the same anointing (His Life) in us that was in Jesus Christ, when He walked the earth.
These are SOME of the things that Father has told us;
1) Col 3:9-10, “…seeing that ye have put OFF the OLD MAN and his deeds. and HAVE put on the new man”…(10) IS renewed in knowledge, after the image of Him that created him:”
2) Col 2: 8-10. “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and NOT after Christ. … (9)For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily…(10) And ye ARE complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.”
3) Gal 2:20, “I AM crucified WITH Christ; nevertheless I live; yet NOT I, but Christ liveth (is living) in me and the life which I now live in this flesh I live by the faith of (out from within) the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me, I DO NOT frustrate the grace of (out from within) God; for IF righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.”
4) Gal 3:27, “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ HAVE PUT ON CHRIST.”
5) 1Cor 2:16, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But WE HAVE the mind of Christ.”
6) Roman 15:6, “That ye may with ONE MIND and ONE MOUTH glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
7)**John 15:4-6, “ABIDE IN ME, and I IN YOU. (this is a COMMAND). As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; NO MORE CAN YE, except ye abide in me. (5) I am the vine, ye are the branches; (present tense) He that abideth (ARE abiding) in me, and I in him, the same bringeth (is bringing) forth much fruit; for without me YE CAN DO NOTHING.”
What we need to understand here is this; Jesus HAD NOT died and resurrected at this time. He was speaking to His disciples. “YE CAN DO NOTHING,” was speaking to men who had NOT YET, had His Spirit, the Christ, living within them!! There’s much to think about, here. WE DO HAVE CHRIST IN US!! We were given Christ, when we resurrected with Him, as the new creature!! We have the equipping, that we need to do as He says. It is NOW possible for us, the Christ, to do and be as He created us to do and be. Look closely at, John 17:4-5, and you’ll see, IT IS FINISHED!! He did the work that He was sent to do!! He DIED so that He could equip us to be, as He is!!
John 17:4-5, “I have glorified thee on the earth; I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.”
Darkness and POLLUTION has grown and grown and grown, in His people, because we keep WAITING for HIM to do, WHAT HE HAS TOLD US TO DO!! He has equipped us greatly! If we do not begin to take OUR RESPONSIBILITY seriously, we will do the exact same thing that the lie of the rapture message has and IS doing, WAITING OURSELVES RIGHT INTO THE GRAVE!
How are we going to take our responsibility seriously? IT IS CALLED BELIEF!! Belief in EVERYTHING that He tells us, that WE ARE AND WE CAN DO! Our “rest” in Him, is BELIEVING in the ASSURANCE OF (out from within) HIS WORDS! No if, ands, or buts. No matter what someone else believes. HE comes first! Yes, we are to love the brethren, BUT, not to the point that we fellowship with POLLUTION. This may be hard for some to accept, but the “love” that we know, IS NOT the kind of love that He is. In agreeing with the brethren (men and women), for the sake of showing them that we love them, on something that Father has clearly shown us as truth, that is different from what they are saying, IS POLLUTION! And it’s time to stop! If you search the Word, you will find scripture to back this up.
1Cor. 6:15-16, “Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, s
Yes, Father IS bringing UNITY into play, BUT, the UNITY, that He is bringing forth, is UNITY OF FAITH in His Word. THE TRUTH OF HIM.
We are being taught that the BRETHREN are to come into UNITY. And there IS a people who are standing in unity. BUT, notice what the Word says about UNITY:
Eph 4:2-16, “With all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, forbearing one another in love: (3) ENDEAVORING TO KEEP THE UNITY OF THE SPIRIT, in the bond of peace. (13-16) Till ALL come in the UNITY OF THE FAITH, AND OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE SON OF GOD unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive: But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ; From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body, unto the edifying of itself in love.”
Do you see what we are to come into the UNITY of? It’s of the SPIRIT, and of FAITH (His Faith) AND OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE SON OF GOD!! It doesn’t say that all the Christians are going to come into the UNITY of each other!! (at least in this timeframe of God). Does that mean that EVEN when HE shows us that what we’re hearing is NOT bringing forth the GROWTH INTO THE STATURE OF THE FULLNESS of Christ? No, it doesn’t. Some WILL NOT manifest the completeness of the manifested Sons of God!! ALL are not ordained to that place! Of course, we follow the leading of the SPIRIT, that’s where the UNITY OF THE SPIRIT COMES INTO PLAY. But, do we stay at a place that is not producing HIS PLAN, just because we LOVE the brethren. That’s carnal love. His LOVE teaches, shows growth, and corrects, when necessary, disciplines. We have to love this idea of what OUR LOVE IS!
It’s sad to say, but even in the message of the Kingdom, there are still those who are WAITING on what HE SAYS ALREADY IS! Amen!
The new creature HAS all the fullness of the Godhead bodily!! His Word, says, to call (speak) things that are not as though they are.” We’ve been calling for that, that ALREADY IS!! as though it isn’t. And that is called UNBELIEF!! What we believe in our heart, IS what is being manifested. And when we say, “wait for Him to do this or that”, we are POLLUTING His Word that says, “I have finished the work that I was sent to do.” We are believing “what WILL BE” not what IS. As we keep MOVING WITH FATHER, more and more of HIM IS seen, not will be seen. A lot of brethren keep saying, “yes, it is finished in the Spirit, but...” Well, WE ARE SPIRIT, so, that means, that it is finished in us. We’re not manifesting it, because, WE’RE WAITING for it to appear. Unbelief, will not allow manifestation!
We HAVE the Word written in our mind and in our heart. HIS WORD tells us this. We MUST meditate on HIS WORD, day and night, study it out, talk to Him about the understanding of it. As we do this, what manifests? Walking epistles. There is a time, in the lives of the firstfruits, when they do not need the Bible! (now this statement will sure upset some!! But did our Pattern walk around with a bible?) They ARE walking EPISTLES! (2 Cor 3:1-4) As we put His Word into us, by studying, allowing the Holy Spirit to bring it to our remembrance, then the HOLY SPIRIT brings forth more and more and more understanding. And as understanding is given, it matters NOT who believes it and who doesn’t, we are to walk it. When we share the Truth, that Father is giving us, if someone doesn’t accept it and wants to cling to what they were and are being taught by man, then we keep right on moving with Father. We love that person, but, we move WITH GOD!
***Thought for the day: WE ARE, in this hour, that which is to rid the POLLUTION. Then, the NEXT ORDER OF MEN will not be suffocated with the smog, the smut and the contaminations that is now fogging the heavens of some. We ARE HIS TIME. We ARE HIS HOUR that He is moving in, right now. Others may not be this hour. So, keep moving, in Him, in the land.
PS 19:14, “Let the WORDS OF MY MOUTH and the MEDITATION OF MY HEART, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, MY STRENGTH, and MY REDEEMER.” Amen.
JEREMIAH 7:1-4,11, “THE WORD OF THE LORD CAME TO JEREMIAH FROM THE LORD SAYING, STAND IN THE GATE OF THE LORD’S HOUSE, AND PROCLAIM THERE THIS WORD, AND SAY, HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD, ALL YE OF JUDAH, THAT ENTER IN AT THESE GATES TO WORSHIP THE LORD. THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, AMEND YOUR WAYS AND YOUR DOINGS, AND I WILL CAUSE YOU TO DWELL IN THIS PLACE. TRUST YE NOT IN LYING WORDS, SAYING, THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD, THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD, THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD, ARE THESE.” VS 11″ IS THIS HOUSE, WHICH IS CALLED BY MY NAME, BECOME A DEN OF ROBBERS IN YOUR EYES? BEHOLD, EVEN I HAVE SEEN IT, SAITH THE LORD.”
“A den of robbers”. Have we been robbed? Yes!! Yes indeed, we have! But, whose fault is it for the robbery (other than Father trying to teach us something?) And what have we been robbed of? We’ve been (temporarily) robbed of that child like faith that we had when we first came to know the Lord, and now, we must return to our first Love! Many of us have. But, many have not. (and will not, in this time frame) The robbery is STILL taking place; MAN is robbing God’s people, of Father’s Truth, of WHO THEY ARE!
What we WERE being robbed of, was the revelation of Christ manifesting through us, His Body; of ONLY Father being seen, in the earth, through us; of that Loving Nature of Father’s, (with a nature that MAN has taught the what to do’s and what not to do’s) that compassion of His;(His Compassion is for what is NEEDED, not what a man wants to give us), the Sovereignty of Him IN US!. Many are still being robbed, because of the House of Bethel. (House of the Lord.)
Now, there are those who will not agree with me on the following, but that’s ok. I give what Father gives me. If it hasn’t been revealed to someone else, then as they say, “all in God’s time.” The easy way out for many, is to say, the churches, the pastors and the teachers, are to be blamed for this robbery. Yes, that would be the easy way out, but, have you ever hear the old saying of “every coin has 2 sides”? Well, let’s take a look at the other side of the coin.
Look at these scriptures:
1) 1Cor 15:51 “BEHOLD, I SHEW YOU A MYSTERY; WE SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP, BUT WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED.”
2) 1COR 2:16 “FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM? BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.”
3) COL 2:9-10,15 “FOR IN HIM DWELLETH ALL THE FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY. AND YE ARE COMPLETE IN HIM, WHICH IS THE HEAD OF ALL PRINCIPALITY AND POWER.”
4) GAL 2:20 “I AM CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST; NEVERTHELESS I LIVE; YET NOT I, BUT CHRIST LIVETH IN ME; AND THE LIFE WHICH I NOW LIVE IN THE FLESH I LIVE BY THE FAITH OF THE SON OF GOD, WHO LOVED ME AND GAVE HIMSELF FOR ME.”
5) COL 3:4 WHEN CHRIST, WHO IS OUR LIFE, SHALL APPEAR, THEN SHALL YE ALSO APPEAR WITH HIM IN GLORY.”
6) 2 TIM 2:15 “STUDY TO SHOW YOURSELF APPROVED UNTO GOD, A WORKMAN THAT NEEDETH NOT TO BE ASHAMED, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH”
7) JOHN 16:13 “HOWBEIT WHEN HE, THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, IS COME, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH; FOR HE SHALL NOT SPEAK OF HIMSELF, BUT WHATSOEVER HE SHALL HEAR, THAT SHALL HE SPEAK; AND HE WILL SHEW YOU THINGS TO COME.”
I HOPE, that as you read these scriptures, that you saw ALL of the PRESENT TENSE words!! They don’t say, will be in the future, PRESENT TENSE means just that, RIGHT NOW. But, it also depends on IF WE will accept these truths!! And another thing that some will not agree with, which is also ok, is we keep putting everything off , with the words, “all in Father’s time”. Well, if Father brought them to our attention, it must be HIS time for us to pay attention to them. Seek Him. And allow Him to minister HIS REVELATION on them, to us. HE is our Teacher and PASTOR, if we choose to have MAN doing HIS WORK, then who is to blame for that? When HE shows us something, and we take MAN’S reasoning of it, who is to blame for that? Where is OUR FOCUS? Think about it. This is a growing process, are WE moving with the process, or waiting on our “pastor” and “teachers” to say “it’s time to move?”
Who has robbed us? A lot of that, we need to put on our own shoulders! Some of us have been too lazy, too busy with other things, too unconcerned to sit down, commit ourselves to study and time to listen to what Father wants to say to us. A lot of the time, we’re too busy telling HIM, what we WERE taught by others!! We’re trying to teach HIM HIS OWN WORD, in the opinion of MAN!!
When I was in school, I did not like to study. There was always “more fun” things to do. But when I accepted JESUS as my Savior, I had no choice in the matter, I HAD to study. I knew NOTHING about the Bible, and not very much about Jesus. But, even way back then, when I started to study, some questions came to my mind, about THINGS that Father spoke to me, just 2 months ago! But, as a babe in the Lord, back then, I thought as a babe, things like: “if you LOVE the leaders”, you didn’t question the leaders about any doubts that you might have, on what they were teaching. And, anyway, “who am I that I should try to point out an error, from one who went to seminary, and Father just revealed everything to?” “IF you LOVE the pastor and teachers, you won’t HURT THEIR FEELINGS, by acknowledging something that FATHER is showing, and it’s different from what THEY are showing.” But soon I learned, all that they preached WASN’T from Father! But, to make a long story, short, it was MY fault that I did not truly believe that Father would teach, ME, just as quickly as He did anyone else, whether they were a big preacher or not! But, THANKFULLY, Father did start teaching me (and still is). But, you see, I had to commit my time, my energy, and my desire and most of all my PRIORITY, before He would bring forth truth to me.
Can we all say that we give the time to Father that He desires from us, so that He can talk and teach us? Or do we depend on the MAN to do our studying for us and tell us what is truth? Can we all say that we LOVE HIM enough that what HE TEACHES comes FIRST, above anyone? So, we need to look at ourselves, and admit the truth, of our slothfulness, about NOT really KNOWING what LOVE is, before we put ALL the blame on the churches. Yes, they have done a great deal in the robbing, but WE allowed it!!
. As I took this before Father, and He said to me, “EVEN I have brought some of this upon you, to teach you to come ONLY to ME, for learning. And know this, My firstfruits ARE NOT BEING ROBBED, for they know My Voice and will not follow another.” Praise His Name!!
JEREMIAH 26:2-4 “THUS SAITH THE LORD; STAND IN THE COURT OF THE LORD’S HOUSE AND SPEAK UNTO ALL THE CITIES OF JUDAH, WHICH COME TO WORSHIP IN THE LORD’S HOUSE, ALL THE WORDS THAT I COMMAND THEE TO SPEAK UNTO THEM; DIMINISH NOT A WORD.”
When we go before Father and He tells us AGAIN, His truths, will we bring forth, as He commands, and diminish not a Word? Or will we allow others’ opinions to sway us to think THEIR way? Or will we be afraid of “hurting their feelings”, because they have more experience than us? Or will our priority be to the Lord, regardless of what we’re called, or what is said about us? HE COMES FIRST! And HE said, “diminish not a Word”.
VERSE 3-4 “IF SO BE THEY WILL HEARKEN, AND TURN EVERY MAN FROM HIS EVIL, THAT I MAY REPENT ME OF THE EVIL, WHICH I PURPOSE TO DO UNTO THEM BECAUSE OF THE EVIL OF THEIR DOINGS. AND THOU SHALT SAY UNTO THEM, THUS SAITH THE LORD, IF YE WILL NOT HEARKEN TO ME, TO WALK IN MY LAW, WHICH I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU…”
These verses show clearly that there IS and WILL BE a separating of the brethren. I could list numerous verses telling and warning us to separate ourselves from some brethren, but you can look those up. But, we are told to NOT fellowship with those of false teachings. And ANYTHING that is not in line with Father’s teachings ARE false teachings. And some are saying, but we are to love the brethren!! Yes, we are. But not with the love that we know as love. We are to love them with the Love that comes from Father. Father’s Word tells us “that when we lay down with a harlot, we become ONE with the harlot.” (1 Cor 6:16) We may not have been aware of it, but, when we sit and agree with brethren about what they teach, for the sake of “showing love”, or for the sake of “not hurting their feelings,” we are agreeing in their beliefs. And agreeing is covenanting! And that IS NOT Father’s kind of love.
In the next and probably last part of this study, I want to explain, exactly what I mean when I say, “we have a part to do” in what must be done, in us; instead of “waiting” for Father to do things that has already been done by Him. I also want to talk a little about His Kind of Love.
I was talking, via email, to a wonderful, loving brother, and he suggested that I ponder over Isaiah 52. So I did. I pondered, and pondered and pondered. And I ask Father to please show me what it was that He wanted me to see, of His Truth. But, before I proceed with this study, I want to share something that I had never noticed before.
I turned to Gen. 2:21, “AND THE LORD GOD CAUSED A DEEP SLEEP TO FALL UPON ADAM…”
I have looked and looked throughout the Bible, and I can’t see anywhere, where Adam woke up. This Adam, was the man who was created in God’s image. Now, Adam was still the Adam that God had created. He had not been formed in the flesh yet. I have a question, if anyone could enlighten me on this, I would appreciate any thoughts you could share on this. The question is this; Could this “lower life” be an educating dream, that we, as being created in His image, are the ones who are awakening from that sleep? It brought to mind, when I was younger and was working, as a welder, in a steel mill. I worked the midnight turn, and after dinner, I would sleep until about 10pm. My Dad would come into my bedroom and gently shake me and say, “Linda, Linda, honey it’s time to wake up and get ready for work.” This awakening, is telling us something.
Isaiah 52:1, “AWAKE, AWAKE; PUT ON THY STRENGTH, O ZION; PUT ON THY BEAUTIFUL GARMENTS, O JERUSALEM, THE HOLY CITY; FOR HENCEFORTH THERE SHALL NO MORE COME INTO THEE THE UNCIRCUMCISED AND THE UNCLEAN.”
Here in verse 1, it speaks to me, of those of us, who are awakening to the truth of who we are. And it just reinforces the truth, that WE (as that new man, Christ=Father’s Life), and to “put on thy strength”. And WE have to “put on thy beautiful garments.” (love, joy and peace=His Nature.) Now, we know that it is Christ who lives in these bodies, not us. And if we don’t, if we are thinking that it’s us AND Him, then that makes us double-minded. But, all through the NT, it keeps telling us who we are. And I do know, that we’ve been going through a process, I am not denying that. BUT, as we go through this study, we will see that there IS a part that WE must play. And as we do play our part, in the manifesting of Christ on earth, we must understand WHO we are, before we can start saying, “WE can do it, We can do anything! YES it is Father who is doing the doing, BECAUSE IT’S HIS LIFE that is being lived, through us. So, IF it is HIS LIFE, can WE do, as HE leads US TO DO? ABSOLUTELY! Without that understanding who WE are, I would say, “yes, you’re right, we can do NOTHING.”. Also, notice “henceforth there will NO MORE come unto thee, the UNCIRCUMCISED and the UNCLEAN.” Father will bring unto us, those who HE has prepared the hearts of, to hear HIS WORD. NOT ALL PEOPLE, but those ordained to this realm. But, so many people are saying, “well Jesus, Himself, told us:
John 15, 4-7, “Abide in me, and I IN YOU. As the branch cannot bear fruit of ITSELF EXCEPT it abide in the VINE; no more can ye, EXCEPT ye abide in me. (5) I am the vine. Ye are the branches. He that ABIDETH IN ME, and I IN HIM, the same BRINGETH FORTH MUCH FRUIT; for WITHOUT me YE CAN DO NOTHING. (6) IF a man abide NOT in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and MEN gather them and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. (7) IF YE ABIDE IN ME AND MY WORDS ABIDE IN YOU, ye shall ask what ye will and it shall be done unto you.”
I see a couple of things in these verses. First of all, we must understand WHO Jesus is talking to here. If you look at 14:22, we see that it is Judas, who is asking questions of Jesus. And THEN, we must understand WHEN these Words of Jesus’ were spoken. Jesus HAD NOT died, been buried and resurrected YET. Which tells us, that He was talking to men who DID NOT have the Holy Spirit living in them YET. Oh yes, they followed Him, but HE WAS NOT ABIDING IN THEM YET AND THEY WERE NOT ABIDING IN HIM! So no, it was absolutely true, that they could do nothing of themselves. BUT, that is NOT the case WITH US! HE ABIDES IN US AND US IN HIM! And what and who abides in us is CHRIST. Christ means anointing, anointed one, and the anointing IS FATHER’S LIFE. So, to say that WE (as His anointed one) can do nothing, then we pollute HIS Word. And we do know that Christ can do all things, for it is Father’s Life who is actually doing it and saying it. There IS NO US! It is ONLY Father’s LIFE, IN US doing the doing and speaking the speaking.
ISAIAH 52:2, “SHAKE THYSELF FROM THE DUST: ARISE, AND SIT DOWN, O JERUSALEM; LOOSE THYSELF FROM THE BANDS OF THY NECK, O CAPTIVE DAUGHTER OF ZION.”
Here AGAIN, we are hearing Father say, “YOU shake YOURSELF from the dust, (which is this earthly thinking that we’ve been doing, even though the Word has been telling us, all along, “ye have the mind of Christ”). It is HIM that is living, not the person we were; and if it’s Him living, then HIS mind IS in us too; and until we stop allowing the dust, that is covering HIS mind, to go, we will NEVER have the full use of the mind of Christ. It’s all where our focus is at. If we allow, past teaching to tell us, “well we’re in a process and have to wait until Father does it...” Well, Jesus said, “I have FINISHED the work You sent Me to do.” If He said it, He means it and if He means it, then it has to be true! Just as hard as it was to move from the rapture message, into this Kingdom message, it will be as hard for some, to not accept this Word that Father is saying. Do we know why, there will ONLY be a few hand-picked who enter into the manifestation of Christ through us? Because most will be waiting for Father to do something that He has already done!! We’re waiting for His finished Work to be done, just like some are waiting for the rapture. Oh, Father, please help our unbelief!! Who is Jerusalem? Who is Zion? WE ARE! He’s saying ARISE, HEAR what I AM is saying. And “sit down.” Sit down means to REST. To REST is to LIVE on the ASSURANCE of who He is telling us, we are. To rest, does NOT mean to sit and watch. If you notice, when Father was creating, it said that on the 7th day He rested; and THEN, it turns right around and says He did MORE WORK!! Is HE our Pattern or not?
AGAIN, His Word says, “YOU LOOSE YOURSELF from the bands of thy neck.” (Bands, are the thinking, that keeps us bound to UNBELIEF , unbelief in our part in this wonderful manifesting of Him. He has given all that is needed, to do as He says. “If I give you hands, eyes, a mind, and a gift that is all wrapped up, do you expect ME to untie the bow, open the box for you”? No, you don’t’. You open it up and you use it. Well, this gift, of CHRIST’S life, was given, so that WE would believe what He’s told us, and use it. It’s ALL Father is IN US, why aren’t we taking what He has given us, and do our part, instead of waiting for Him to do, what He’s NOT going to do. WE ARE NOT who we were! WE ARE FATHER’S LIFE, but we’re not doing our part. It was Father who spoke, but it was Jesus who MOVED HIS LIPS!
ISAIAH 52; 3-5, all 3 verses speak to me of “the old man” in that fallen state of Adam.
52: 6, here in this verse, if we take out the words that King James put in, this verse would read: “THEREFORE MY PEOPLE SHALL KNOW MY NAME: THEREFORE, IN THAT DAY THAT, HE THAT DOTH SPEAK; BEHOLD, I”
What I’m seeing here is, “those that KNOW my NATURE” to truly KNOW something, it must be believer and lived. And in order to live it, it must FIRST BE BELIEVED! “In that day” – what day? The day when we accept the truth of who we are, not who we will be, “He that doth speak; behold I.” What did Jesus say? “When you see Me, you’ve seen the Father”. Well in the day that we accept who we are, and what part we must play in this plan (we as Christ on this earth), He will speak, but it will be us moving the lips, and when they see us, they WILL see the Father. It was through Christ that Father created the world. It was through Christ that Father spoke, but it was Christ, who DID what Father thought and spoke and showed what was to be done. I think this verse is beautiful!
JOHN 14:9-13, “JESUS SAID UNTO PHILIP, HAVE I BEEN WITH YOU SO LONG, AND YET HAST THOU NOT KNOWN ME, HE THAT HATH SEEN ME HATH SEEN THE FATHER: AND HOW SAYEST THOU THEN, SHEW US THE FATHER?”
If you notice, the next 2 verses give the answer, with the first word of each verse: BELIEVE!!
“BELIEVEST THOU NOT THAT I AM IN THE FATHER AND THE FATHER IS IN ME? THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK UNTO YOU, I SPEAK NOT OF MYSELF; BUT THE FATHER THAT DWELLETH IN ME HE DOETH THE WORKS.”
“BELIEVETH ME THAT I AM IN THE FATHER, AND THE FATHER IN ME: OR ELSE BELIEVE ME FOR THE VERY WORK’S SAKE.”
“VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO YOU, HE THAT BELIEVETH ON ME, THE WORKS THAT I DO SHALL HE DO AND GREATER WORKS THAN THESE SHALL HE DO; BECAUSE I GO UNTO MY FATHER.”
“AND WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK IN MY NAME (NATURE) THAT WILL I DO THAT THE FATHER MAY BE GLORIFIED IN THE SON.”
I want to go to Isaiah 52:14
ISAIAH 52:14, “AS MANY WERE ASTOUNDED AT THEE; HIS VISAGE WAS SO MARRED, MORE THAN ANY MAN, AND HIS FORM MORE THAN THE SONS OF MEN.”
His “visage”, (facial expression, which we ARE) WAS marred, (was corrupted by the old man). His glorious visage has always been there, within us, but the old man was in such a fallen state (or dream?) that he didn’t KNOW it! But, NOW, we, as the new creatures, Christ=anointed one of God, are showing forth His glorious visage. Hallelujah! IF we believe it. “For as a man thinketh (eth means, continually) as a man is continually thinking, so is he.”
VS 15, “SO SHALL HE SPRINKLE MANY NATIONS; THE KINGS SHALL SHUT THEIR MOUTHS AT HIM; FOR WHICH HAD NOT BEEN TOLD THEM SHALL THEY SEE; AND WHICH THEY HEARD NOT, SHALL THEY CONSIDER.”
By Father’s might and love, “the kings shall shut their mouths at him.” (at who? At the Christ that is coming forth.) (the ruling of the thoughts that, in the past, we have allowed to become a part of us.) 1Cor 6:16, Prov 23:7) Those thoughts are silenced, as we focus on HIM, that is living, not us, every time a thought, that we know is NOT of Him begins to form, their “mouths” shall be shut. Oh Hallelujah! We’ve learned a lot, by the Holy Spirit, since the day when we use to say “I am a sinner saved by grace,” and we Must ARISE (the Christ that is living) and REST (have assurance in who He tells us we are) and in what HE expects US to walk into. “for that which had not been told them, they shall SEE; and that which they had not heard shall be considered. (discerned and understood.) This is being fulfilled, as we speak, NOW!
Closing this part of the study, I’d like to share something that a wonderful brother said:
Quote: “Christ implants a thought into our spirit, this thought, which comes from our spirit, logically works through the law of our mind, also called our soul, out into our physical world, the body of our affairs. Christ is Life, Christ is Light, Christ is assurance of prosperity and health. As He is so are we, in this world. As these thoughts come from Christ it follows that they enter our soul, and as our soul prospers, they manifest in health and prosperity for the body of our affairs, our physical world.”
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, as you soul prospers. (3 John 1:2)
I’d like to share this translation that Bro. Alan Savage shared. I think it is not only beautiful, but very revealing, of a fresh revelation that Father has shown me. I want to thank Bro. Alan for sharing this with me.
Judges 6:34 ... “the Spirit of the Lord clothed itself with Gideon.”
The translation “The Spirit of the Lord came upon” sounds rather tame and inadequate. Because the meaning of the word should rather be, “the Spirit of the Lord ‘put on’ man” The Spirit found the human personality and put him on, as a dress or cloak. The suggestion is, that the infinite Spirit of God is moving around the earth, seeking whom He may put on, and is ready to invest Himself, wherever there is a human being ready to be put on. His works among men must be done by men. The invisible Spirit must clothe Himself in the body of a man or woman. And must use the faculties, the brain, the heart, the will. The spirit must be clothed upon of man. _______ Alan Savage
Again, thank you Bro. Alan, for sharing this most beautiful TRUTH!
I’d like to share something that Father spoke to me, while I was waiting for my sister, to go to dinner. Father said, “I have revealed the new name, that I promised in my Book. There are those, though, who want to pollute even the name I have given. They pollute it, by the thinking of their carnal minds. As it is in the natural, they want to bring a part of their “old” way of thinking, into MY PRESENT TRUTH. They want to “join” the “old” to My Present Day Name. But I WILL NOT have it! I Am saying, “No, My Love, either you accept My Name as it is, or you will have no part of this new name. I see 3 groups of My People:
1) Those who are walking in Me today, in the earth. These have My new name.
2) Then, there are those who are STILL waiting. These are not moving with Me, and AM I, not an ever moving
God? These have My new name ONLY in their carnal thinking.
3) Then there are those, whose only interest is in man’s teaching, who will perish before they even know what
My new name is. They will not wear My new name.” Amen.
