PART ONE

Romans 7:4, “Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God”.

Isn’t this all of our dreams? Don’t we all want to be all that Father created us to be?  Father has drawn us into a knowing that we are not who and what we’ve always thought we were. Just a mere mortal man, Adam, flesh and blood is us.  He has brought us into the remembrance that this flesh body is not us. This belief in us being this flesh and blood body has clouded our knowing that this is not us. Father has made us to know that we are a spirit being, that lives in this body and has a soul. We’ve always thought, once we came into relationship with Father, that it was Him and us living in this body. He has brought us into the knowledge that is isn’t even our life that we are living, it is HIS LIFE  that is being lived through us.

And I am not saying that it’s an easy thing, to forget all the junk that we’ve been taught, it sure isn’t easy!! It is a constant thing that we must keep meditating on. We’ve been so used to seeing faults in ourselves, as well as everyone else. The first thought that has been in us, is to judge ourselves and others.  We meet someone and the first thing we think is, “Oh, she/he’s nothing like I expected.”  Many, many times we’ve been so disappointed in what we see in that person. When actually, we should have been looking at the Christ in that person.  Those of you who have been getting my studies for any length of time, know that Christ is not the man, Jesus. Christ is the anointing of Father.  The anointing is HIS LIFE.

I say it is not an easy thing, to see Him in some people, or in ourselves, at times. But, this is a necessity, if we have any hope in Him manifesting through us! It is what we must meditate on day and night. That the clue, what we keep our focus on, is what we see.  I want to just allow Father to show us some things, today.

NOW, for the kicker!!  Uh-oh!!  Those that have been with me for the last 5 years; if you remember, back in 2002, Father spoke to me and said that there would come a time, when we would not be able to back up everything we say, with the bible. Remember?  Well, we are now in that time. It’s not because the bible lies, although, we have become aware that there are thousands of mistakes that the interpreters have made. What we need to understand is that the bible tells us the it is “inspired” by the Holy Spirit. Right?  Ok, let’s get real, lose all religion and see things the way they really are. Think about it. It did not say that the bible was WRITTEN by the Holy Spirit, it was “inspired”.  It hasn’t been all that long ago that we learned that we are the Christ in the earth. So, that means that the writings of the bible WERE NOT all written by the Holy Spirit. And let’s stop looking at the disciples like they were some kind of gods. They were just as we are. There’s absolutely no difference in them, than there is in us. WE ARE INSPIRED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TOO!!  And yet, there are thousands of doctrines out there. There’s brethren fighting with brethren over what is true and of God, and what isn’t.  It was the same in the disciples days.  The disciples argued amongst themselves; were jealous of each other, and had unwanted personalities. Temper, greed, jealousy, all of it, worked in them just as it does today in the people that Father is wanting to speak through. And that includes us, not just men behind the pulpit. He wants to speak and be seen through each of us.

Think about it. Father speaks to us, He inspires us to say or write things. And ALL that He speaks TO US is truth. But, with us thinking that we are mere mortals, we think like mere mortals. We give OUR interpretation of what Father says to us. That means, that UNLESS we are continuously in the Spirit, we pollute what He has said to us. With this natural mind we say things the way we THINK; we read the way we THINK. It’s the same with the bible. Folks, it’s time that we stop making an idol of the bible. Even the Holy Spirit tells us;

Rom 7:5-6, “For when we were in the flesh, the passions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. But, NOW, we are delivered from the law, being dead where we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.”

2Cor. 3:5-6, “Not that we are sufficient of (out from within) ourselves to think any thing as of (out from within) ourselves, but our sufficiency is of (out from within) God;  Who has made us able ministers of the New Testament; not of the letter (the written bible), but of (out from within) the spirit; for the letter (the written bible), killeth (eth means continually), but the spirit giveth (is continually giving) life.”

Rom.2:29, “But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is of the heart, in the spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not of man, but of God.”

There is no doubt in me, that what Jesus spoke, He spoke of this very time:

John 5:39-40, “Ye search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life; and they are they which testify of me.  And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.”

I am not saying to throw your bible away. But, like Paul, when we were babes we needed the bible, to learn to be brought to the Spirit. Once we mature, there comes a time when we should go to HIM, not the bible. We choose a subject and go to the bible to study it out AND THEN we go to Father.  It should be the other way around; go to Father, ASK HIM what should you study, or, even IF you should at that particular time. But, folks, once we learn to hear Father’s Voice, we need nothing. Didn’t He tell us that the Spirit would teach us all things?  He doesn’t lie. Honestly, IF we simply spoke and wrote what Father speaks to us, instead of trying to put OUR MEANING to what the written Word says, we would have ONLY ONE DOCTRINE!!  Think about it.  And listen, there’s nothing wrong in reading the bible, as long as we allow HIM to interpret it, not man, or us.  The OT was to teach us sin. We would not be aware of sin, if there had been no OT. But, also, the OT was to lead us to the NT. Many people stop here. But, the NT is really simply leading us to the Spirit.  If the Holy Spirit speaks a thing to us, and doesn’t give us a scripture reference to back it up and we take that to a man and share it, and he insists we should read it in the bible, many of us are inclined to be influenced by the opinion of man and we leave thinking, “well this isn’t what they teach us this scripture means”, and in allowing ourselves to be influenced by man’s thinking, we can miss a true revelation from Father.

Sometimes we get so busy reading the bible that we THINK that we’re giving Him our time. His time is with HIM, nothing else.  We have our priorities so out of line. More and more I hear folks say, “well I work 10-12 hours a day, then I give time to my family, THEN if I’m not too tired, I read a few scriptures and talk to Father”.  And yet, we expect HIM to think we love and honor Him… everything first, then Him.  You know, if anyone has to work so many hours that they are worn out and can’t spend time with Him, maybe material things mean more to them than Father does. You say, “well I have to work; I have obligations, bills to pay etc. etc.”  Well, maybe we WANT too much. We don’t NEED all that we WANT!!  This too, is another hard thing to turn loose of, but SOME do. Where is our faith?  Didn’t He say, “Consider the lilies of the field?”  We come up with reasons why we still go on doing the way we’ve grown used to. This says, our faith is not in Him. I know, you disagree with this, but, take it to Him. The bible says that a man is to work, but, it doesn’t say, “work so much to get what you want and that you are too tired to spend time with Me.” We hear everyday of people working himself/herself to death, and that’s exactly what’s happening when work comes before Him. We have become materialistic, with this thinking that the natural mind thinks. But, put on the Mind of Christ, and He comes before EVERYTHING!  You get blessed just for what you have; you don’t want more and more and more.

And I’ll tell you something else. IF you spend enough time with Father, you won’t want to run to every meeting you hear about, to get a truth. You won’t want to run to another person, when you’re tired of hearing what you’ve been hearing. You won’t want something deeper, something that gives you direction on HOW TO; when you don’t even brother to practice what you have already learned; you can get all the “how tos” that you want, from whoever you want, but, until you spend time with HIM and practice what HE tells you, you’re wasting your time and money that you worked all those hours to get!  Think about it.

Another thing to think about. We’ve become so hooked on translating one language to another. I have been guilty of this. And then we find that one translator doesn’t agree with another translator.  We’re encouraged to read bibles that have commentaries. And when we do, what are we getting?  Someone else’s interpretation of what God says!  So, the remedy to all of this?  Let the Spirit do the teaching. If what He teaches you doesn’t agree with what someone else, including me, teaches, well then, there’s no doubt Who to believe!  You know, we in this Kingdom message are just repeating what we encouraged the “church system people” to do, let HIM teach you. Follow the Spirit, not man. And then when we do this, some of the teachers and preachers go into this long speal about “the Greek means this” and another says, “no, it means this” and then that’s where the focus is at.  And when you get right down to it, even being smart enough to translate languages, is of the natural mind.  ONLY THE SPIRIT can do what the SPIRIT is come to do.”

So, I’ve said all this to say this. What I write, in this study, if I can’t back it up with scriptures, you have two choices, (1) take it to Father, (2) or leave it.  We are at a pivotal time, people. We are seeing things that we’ve never seen before. Bodies are being changed. I know of at least 3 people who are seeing changes in their bodies. Many won’t believe it because they aren’t seeing changes in THEIR body, but, I’d be willing to bet, that those seeing the change are spending a lot of time with Father. We have to ask ourselves, “what’s it worth to me, to spend time with Father?”, “what will I gain from stopping running here and there to get His truth?”  The answer is up to each one of us. And what we decide is the fruit we’ll have shown.

PART TWO

Romans 7:18-25, “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh), dwelleth no good thing; for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would, I do not; but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now, if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man; but, I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.”

Haven’t we all been here?  It was miserable, wasn’t it?  Well, hopefully, we have passed from this. How?  By knowing who and what we are. I mean, after all, didn’t Jesus take ALL sin to the cross with Him?  Then, if we THINK that we still sin, we must not believe that He did a very good job of it!!  Right?  We have learned that if we focus on sin, we will find it. Because, “as a man believeth in his heart, so is he”. And that is the truth. This is where keeping our focus on HIM, prevents us from seeing sin. Father doesn’t see sin.  Father doesn’t see darkness, or sin, as humans see it, because His “inspired Word” tells us that “light and darkness are the same to God”. (PS 139:12, MT. 5:45)

I want to speak, for a moment about the scripture, being inspired of God. God DID NOT write the bible, He inspired it.

2Tim. 3:16, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

Now this scripture tells us that scripture is inspired of God, right?  No, it doesn’t. That little word, “is” was added by the scholars who wrote the King James Bible.  Now, actually it should be read: “All scripture given by inspiration of God, is...”

You may say, “What’s the difference”?   Well, it does not say that ALL scripture IS INSPIRED of (out from within) God. Example:  in the writings of Paul, some of the words that Paul spoke, he spoke of God, others were of Paul. When a person speaks what Father leads them to speak, when Father leads them to speak, these words are inspired, aren’t they? No, isn’t it?  In ALL THINGS look back to Jesus. He is our Example.  He didn’t say, “I only say what I am inspired to speak,” no He didn’t.   What He said was “I ONLY speak WHAT I HEAR MY FATHER SAY.”

This word, “inspiration” means: theopneustos:, “divinely breathed in”. It comes from the root word, theh-os, meaning “a deity, the supreme Divinity, figuratively, a magistrate.”  To be inspired, a word MUST be breathed into a person. It is literally, God speaking through that person.  Most people get so upset, if you tell them, “You are God walking the earth, because it’s HIS life that is being lived, not your life.”  If they can’t grasp that truth, will they grasp the truth that it is God speaking through them?  You figure out the answer to that.  For MOST Christians, STILL believe that they are mere mortal man. Now, I know that God will speak through whoever and whatever He wants; but, right now we’re looking at the scriptures, the written scriptures.  Think on this:  does not the written Word, itself, tell us that even the New Testament is DEAD LETTER, UNTIL the Spirit gives life?  We read things like this and just pass right over it. But, I will tell you right now, later in this study, I am going to reveal some things that will INDEED be hard to believe UNTIL the Spirit shows us the truth of these things. But, for now, let’s go on. So, from what I see in 2 Tim, 3:16, is that IF and WHEN a scripture is given by inspiration of God, it’s good for all those things listed…  WHEN it is given by inspiration of God. The opinions of Paul, were not inspired of God; they were Paul’s opinion. We must remember this throughout this study.  Ok, God inspires some His Written Word, but, it was not Him that WROTE it.

God inspired the Words that He spoke, TO MAN.  When God spoke His Words, they were indeed inspired. God didn’t write the words, MAN DID.  Now, can we look at the men that God spoke to as PERFECTED, back then?  We can’t even look at ourselves as perfected when Father’s Words tell us that we are. We keep making excuses for WHY we ARE NOT, even though He says we are. OR, we keep WAITING for what He says to “come true.“.

“NOW, are you sons of God”.  And what are we taught? “Well, we WILL BE WHEN.” That is not what God’s Word said. He did not put any time reference in His statement, except, NOW!! Another thing He said is: “those who follow the Spirit ARE sons of God.” But, what does PS 37:23 tell us?

PS 37:23-24, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord; and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.”

Now, take out the words that are in parenthesis, words that were added, and see how this reads: “The steps of a man are ordered by the Lord; and he (God) delighteth in his way. Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholdeth his hand.”

Do you see the difference?  It doesn’t take being “a good man” for the Lord to order anyone’s steps. HE ORDERS ALL OF EVERYONE’S STEPS. And if a man falls, God upholdeth his hand.  There is a great difference in the speaking of what God is telling us. Man’s interpretation makes man STRUGGLE to be a “good man”.  Well, Father tells us that “as He is so are we in this world”. God doesn’t look at ANY of us as sinners, bad or evil people. He sees us the way He created us. Our TRUE BEING.  We are holy; we are good; we are righteous, WE ARE, NOT WILL BE.

And we know that Jesus’ death brought righteousness to ALL people, so, we must believe it when His “inspired Word” tells us; “the steps of a righteous man are ordered of God”. (PS 37:23)  You see, what we have to come to KNOW is that God doesn’t see right and wrong; good and bad; righteous or unrighteous. He sees ALL THINGS (this includes people) as He created them. The Lamb was slain before anything was ever created (Rev. 13:8) so, we learned that before the soul thinking, the atonement was already in place. So, IF there was a “fall,” whoever “fell,” fell into the atonement.  Just as the law (OT) teaches us sin, so does the thinking of the carnal mind teach us that we sin. If we don’t see things as Father sees them, we see them opposite to His Truth.  He says that we’re not sinners, we’re told by MANY MATURE preachers that we sin daily; but, Father says differently. He says, “As He is in this world, so are we.”  So, whether we understand this or not, who is truth? Him or man’s thinking? So, if we see sin, we know which mind is operating in us. And when man started telling God’s truths, it was IMMEDIATELY POLLUTED!!  And it was all EVE’S or OUR SOUL’S FAULT!! And I’ll get much deeper into this as we go along.

As we learned in Genesis 1, God created us in His Image and He never changes, which means, we have never changed from what He created us. He created us a spirit being, from His very substance and that hasn’t changed either. Only our thinking has changed since He created us.  We were just as Jesus was, when He was on the earth. Death could not touch us, illness and sickness could not touch us. We were a Spirit being. Have you ever heard of a Spirit with cancer, diabetes, respiratory disease?  NO ILLNESS can be upon a spirit being.  It takes flesh for diseases to attach themselves to it.  Whether it is believed or not, we ARE still a spirit being. We ARE still that perfect being that Father created. It is just that we came to the place that if we couldn’t SEE a thing, it didn’t ring as being true to us. But, there’s a people who are seeing themselves as Father sees them regardless of what others say and see. We cannot see for someone else, only a person can see for themselves. We cannot teach a person to see through spiritual eyes, that’s the job of Father; and, if,  we have it in our beliefs that a person can tell us how to do it, we’re wrong. It’s time spent with HIM, not people, that shows us how to do and understand ALL things.  And if we’re still hung up and still believe that we’re still “Adam” or “mere human beings”, we better spend a LOT more time with Him. THE LAST ADAM DIED!!  If our mind is on material things, we will be drawn to the earthly. There’s no getting around it, folks. Either we depend on Him or we don’t. It’s time that we get honest with ourselves. If we want all the material things that we work ourselves to death to get, then we might as well just go right on and enjoy them, but know that we will see death. The material or natural realms things will touch us. It’s time to choose, which do we want – the spiritual or the natural? He gave us all the same opportunity to have Him manifest through us. But, He also knew, which of us would want the natural, material world more than His Life being lived through us. If that seems harsh folks, then I’m sorry, it must have hit a nerve in us and we truly need to examine ourselves!! If we work ourselves 15-16 hrs a day, so we can have our nice home, the car we want, the food we want, all the material things, then we are choosing the natural. When we don’t have time to seek Father for a few hours a day, then what are we putting BEFORE HIM?  it’s up to us, regardless of what we’ve been taught.

There are ranks and orders and people don’t want to accept this. There are/will be those who rule and reign WITH HIM and there are/will be those who ARE RULED BY HIM AND THOSE WHO ARE ONE WITH HIM. Take it to Father and ask HIM. The material will fade away, but, He lives forever. If you are One with Him, how can His Body die if the Head is One with the Body? The Head cannot be separated from the Body.  Think about it. And to be ONE with Him, then NOTHING comes before HIM!  I am not saying that it’s wrong to have nice things. BUT, do we NEED all those things, to the point that we are too tired to seek Him?  We’re not too tired when an emergency comes along. Folks, we really are at the time, when He is saying, “who will you serve, Me or manna?”  And you know what?  I KNOW that you all know this because we are seeing His manifesting!!  Those who don’t have time, or are too tired to get alone with Father are doing nothing but holding the Christ in them, as a prisoner.  You see, we cannot know truth about us, let alone Him, if we aren’t giving Him the time to teach us. And we are finding that we cannot depend on getting the truth from anyone EXCEPT HIM!! He isn’t forcing Himself to come forth through anyone, because He knows that there are those who want nothing more than Him and His Nature to be seen by the world.

Read Psalms and Isaiah and see who holds Christ prisoner and why man has been in the shape that they are in.

IS 28:15, “Because ye have said, we have made a covenant with death and with hell  are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us; for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves. Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation; he that believeth shall not make haste.  Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet; and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.  And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand…”

HE THAT BELIEVETH! How can we believe when we can’t find time to allow HIM to teach us?  Why has death kept on reigning? Because we made the covenant with it, and kept believing it. You know why we have believed it? Because it doesn’t take any TIME OR EFFORT on our part. It’s been easier to let someone else teach us, THE LIES!! Now, we have been enlightened and don’t have to die. But, are we spending time with Him so He can work this revelation in us? Are we meditating day and night on this truth?  Or are we running here and there thinking that someone can MAKE us believe it?  It takes Him Folks, ONLY HIM. You know, I know that I’ve said this before, but, just because Father gives or inspires a Word to someone, and they teach it, doesn’t mean it is inspired in the person receiving the teaching, all it is, is second hand knowledge. UNTIL, HE breaths it into you; and that takes time alone with Him.

PS 102:19-20, “For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth; to hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death.”

The prisoner that has been and still is being held by some, is the Christ in us. Father’s Life. We won’t overturn death UNTIL we release His Life to be lived through us. He has already made it possible. When we know that we are One with Him, we are no longer mere mortal man. We’re not Adam. HE IS DEAD! We are the very body that Father walks around in, and talks through.

PS 102: 24-27, “I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days; thy years are throughout all generations. Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shall endure; yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed; but thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.”

Didn’t God say, “I AM WHO I AM”?  He is Him, in each one of us!  Whoever knows Who they are, are God walking the earth. This physical body is just a way of getting around, HIS GETTING AROUND. The Head and the Body together, ONE. Now, if you are ONE with Him, this is true for you, too.

Now, we all know that Jesus was the ONLY BEGOTTEN Son. Right? Well let’s look and see. This is going to be short and sweet and you take it before Father for the Truth.

John 1:14, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father) full of grace and truth.”

John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Ok, Jesus was the only begotten Son.  Let’s look at Acts.

Acts 13:32-33, “And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, God  hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, and this day have I begotten thee.”

Well, I tell you, THIS IS THE DAY THAT GOD HAS BEGOTTEN US!  We that KNOW without a doubt, who we are. We who know that we are One with God. Their are those who know themselves as being “created” and their are those who know that they are begotten of the Father.  Folks, Father sees us, just as He saw Jesus. We have even been given His Name.

Eph.3:14-15, “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named.”

Now, let’s take a look at us.

1Peter 1:3-5, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten US AGAIN unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

1John 5:1, 18,   “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him, ALSO that is begotten of him.”

VS 18, “We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.”

Are you one that believes that sin is still in us? Do you still believe that the devil still exists in your life?  If the answer is no, you are begotten of God.  Now, one more scripture.

Rev 1:5, “And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the FIRST BEGOTTEN of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father, to him, glory and dominion for ever and ever, Amen.”

Jesus was the FIRST BEGOTTEN of God and of the dead. When did the old man die? At the same time that Jesus did. When Jesus resurrected, who resurrected with Him? We did.   Ok?  Now, those of you who have children, more than one; what is your firstborn known as?  Your FIRST, right? That means that there are MORE CHILDREN AFTER THE FIRST ONE.   You will live as you think you are. If you think you’re a sinner, you are. If you think you are what God says that you are, then you are what He thinks you are.  THINK.  This doesn’t just mean that you tell yourself something, it is what is BELIEVED deep within you, the REAL YOU, One with your Father, His Begotten, the Body of Him, the Head of the Body.

Now, I want to leave you with something to think about.

What all do you think that Eve, or your soul has influenced in the natural world?   We’ll take this up in the next part of this study.

PART THREE

I want to say that this is more of a sharing, than a teaching. There are things that I feel that Father is showing me, and maybe others. I do know that there is a people who are being led by the Spirit of God, rather than books, aids, people and churches. Father is truly manifesting through these folks.  So, you may disagree with some of the things that I write; and you may agree with some. But, I am just sharing what I am being shown. I will be touching on a lot of different things, and I will not be going into deep interpretations of what words or names mean; as I said, this isn’t a teaching, it’s a sharing.

Let’s start out this part, with the question that I left with you, in the last part.  “What all, do you think that Eve, or your soul has influenced in the natural world?”

The answer is EVERYTHING!!  There is not one thing in the natural world that the soul has not influenced, not one! You may say, “Well, God created everything in the world and He saw all of the creation as, very good.”  You’re right about His being pleased with all that HE created and made. He looked at all that HE created and made, and beheld it as, “very good”. Gen.1:31. What He made, He also, appointed a life for each thing. Each thing had a purpose, right down to the rocks, grass, trees; everything has a purpose. So, what happened?  EVE!

I want to start with something that Father showed me, recently.  We all know that there is and has been arguments, debates and discussions about what is Father’s real name.  I use to think, “I really don’t care what His name is, all I want is to KNOW HIM!  And I was satisfied with that all these years.  Like, I’m sure many of you, I have studied and studied all the names that we’ve called Father.  It’s a real job to do that, and I’m not so sure that we walked away knowing any more than we did when we started the study.  I thought that I had it all figured out, when a Greek or Hebrew interpreter would come along and say, “well, that’s not exactly right.”  Then, I’d start all over, walking away, wondering! 

Now, we’ve been taught the names of God that were used in each of the OT Books. In one book, we called Him one name, that described a work that He was doing, while in another book, we called Him another name because He was doing another kind of work. Here are just a few that I got from the Internet:

Compounds of El: El Shaddai: “God Almighty.” The derivation is uncertain. Some think it stresses God’s loving supply and comfort; others His power as the Almighty one standing on a mountain and who corrects and chastens (Gen. 17:1; 28:3; 35:11; Ex. 6:31; Ps. 91:1, 2).

El Elyon: “The Most High God.” Stresses God’s strength, sovereignty and supremacy (Gen. 14:19; Ps. 9:2; Dan. 7:18, 22, 25).

El Olam: “The Everlasting God Emphasizes God’s unchangeableness and is connected with His inexhaustibleness (Gen. 16:13).

(2) Yahweh (YHWH): Comes from a verb which means “to exist, be”. This, plus its usage, shows that this name stresses God as the independent and self-existent God of revelation and redemption (Gen. 4:3; Ex. 6:3 (cf. 3:14); 3:12).

Compounds of Yahweh: Strictly speaking, these compounds are designations or titles which reveal additional facts about God’s character.

Yahweh Jireh (Yireh):”The Lord will provide.” Stresses God’s provision for His people (Gen. 22:14). (provider)

Yahweh Nissi: “The Lord is my Banner.” Stresses that God is our rallying point and our means of victory; the one who fights for His people (Ex. 17:15). (fighter)

Yahweh Shalom: “The Lord is Peace.” Points to the Lord as the means of our peace and rest (Jud. 6:24). (peace)

Yahweh Sabbaoth: “The Lord of Hosts.” A military figure portraying the Lord as the commander of the armies of heaven (1 Sam. 1:3; 17:45). (commander of armies)

Yahweh Maccaddeshcem: “The Lord your Sanctifier.” Portrays the Lord as our means of sanctification or as the one who sets believers apart for His purposes (Ex. 31:13). (sanctifier)

Yahweh Roâ:  “The Lord my Shepherd.” Portrays the Lord as the Shepherd who cares for His people as a shepherd cares for the sheep of his pasture (Ps. 23:1). (carer and watcher of His people)

Yahweh Tsidkenu: “The Lord our Righteousness.” Portrays the Lord as the means of our righteousness (Jer. 23:6). (righteousness)

Yahweh Shammah: “The Lord is there.” Portrays the Lord’s personal presence in the millennial kingdom (Ezek. 48:35). (personal presence)

Yahweh Elohim Israel: “The Lord, the God of Israel.” Identifies Yahweh as the God of Israel in contrast to the false gods of the nations (Jud. 5:3.; Isa. 17:6). (the God of Israel)

(3) Adonai: Like Elohim, this too is a plural of majesty. The singular form means “master, owner.” Stresses man’s relationship to God as his master, authority, and provider (Gen. 18:2; 40:1; 1 Sam. 1:15; Ex. 21:1-6; Josh (our relationship to God)

And we could go on and on and on. (the words in parenthesis, are mine). There are more than 99 names that people use in reference to God.  I have one question:  As in, ADONIA, I want to ask, WHO KNOWS MY RELATIONSHIP TO GOD?  Only Father and I know that relationship. And you can add all the “buts”, you want, but, the truth remains, only Him and I know this fact. These names do not tell me WHO HE IS, they tell me WHAT HE DOES.   Let’s look at what God had to say about His name.

EX.3:14-15, “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said. ‘Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

“And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the LORD (Hebrew: YHWH = Yahweh or Jehovah) God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever and ever; and this is my memorial unto all generations.”

Now, the translators say, “Oh, in the Hebrew language, this means this….or that”. But, the truth of the matter is, is that Father doesn’t speak to me in Hebrew.  He doesn’t speak to me in the Greek language, He speaks to me as He is, “I AM”. “I AM” tells me WHO HE IS, while El Shaddai tells me one thing that HE DOES. Why “am I” bringing up the name game?  To show Eve’s influence on EVEN GOD’s person.  The Jews and Christians go at it over the word “YAHWEH”.  Now, the only thing I want to ask is this: WHO really knows what “YHWH” means?  I don’t mean, what does it mean in the Jewish language, what does it mean, period?  This like ALL the other names that man has given to God, is just that, MAN GIVEN NAMES!!  The Jews added vowels to YHWH to make it pronounceable, that is MAN GIVEN.  GOD said that He is “I AM”, so who do we believe?  I choose God. God DOES NOT have a language that the Jews understand, and one that the Greeks understand, or the Christians understand or ANYBODY ELSE understands, HIS LANGUAGE IS SPIRITUAL and can ONLY be understood by the Spirit.  

Why is so important?  It is important so that WE will know US and OUR NAME.  So, God said, “I AM THAT I AM”. He is whatever and whoever He wants to be. Let’s look at Him in the NT.

Mt.1: 23, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name EMMANUEL, which being interpretated is “GOD WITH US.

So, in the Greek, His name is “God with us”.  Now, God is still the same God that He was in the OT, when HE SAID that His name is “I AM.”  “I AM” manifested in this flesh world, as the man Jesus, and that’s what He has been called, by most people, for the last 2000 years.  My friend, Scott Paris calls Him, “my Papa.”  I call Him, “my wonderful Father.”  My friend, Barb calls Him “Daddy.”  These are our PERSONAL name that we have for Him, and He honors them because these names are out of our love and relationship that we have with Him, but, formally, His name is “I AM.” Why should we care what His “formal” name is?  So, we will know who we are and what is OUR name.

My natural Dad’s name was Lloyd Keith. I called him Daddy until the day he passed into the spirit realm. No matter what I called him, because of our loving relationship, his name was still Lloyd Keith. Now, I could have called him “Lloyd Truck Driver”. That would not have told me what his name was, it would have told me WHAT he was. He was a truck driver. By calling him, Lloyd Keith, I was giving a FAMILY NAME. KEITH.  I was a Keith; my sisters were Keiths. Now, because a man came and gave me another name, his name, when I married him; trace my heritage back and you will find I am still a KEITH. But, IF we trace it even further back, what will we find?

Eph. 3 14-15, “For this cause I bow my knees unto THE FATHER of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom THE WHOLE FAMILY in heaven AND EARTH IS NAMED.”

People may call me Linda Keith; or they may call me Linda; and because of a closeness, people may call me Lu or Linda. But, my real name is the same as my Father, I AM. So I know who I AM, and my Father knows who I AM. The world may know me by many different names because they know me by what Eve is in charge of, the names of the world. But, I am really as my Father is known.  Do you see what I’m saying?  Eve, the natural world has given God all the different names that He is called. He gives us His name, I AM.  Is He your Father? Then your name is the same as His, I AM.  

So, we can see how Eve influenced the names of God. When He speaks to us, He doesn’t speak Hebrew, Greek or even English. The natural cannot understand the language Father speaks.  

Now, I want to look at something else. Oh, I know I will hear from some, on this one, but, that’s ok, at least I know that they are reading this; and if reading it, seeds are being planted.

We’ve learned what Father’s name is and now we need to take a closer look at Eve.

Eve when created was one with the man. Both were united as one and both knew only God. Both had not experienced anything other than God. So, made in His image, both were I AM, because both, as one, came forth from Him. They were His very substance. And remember this “literal Adam and Eve thing is an allegory. After Adam was placed in a deep sleep, Eve took over. From then on, Eve was in control. It is my belief that the reason for Adam being put to sleep, was to keep him from indulging in what Eve was to indulge in. But, that’s just my belief. I do believe that the man is just now awakening from that sleep and is looking for his woman. Now, Eve’s walking away from Father did not change WHO she was. She was and still is I AM, she just has to be re-educated. BY I AM.

When I think of Father saying, “I AM WHO I AM,” I see Him, in US, saying, “I AM.” He is expressing Himself, and living HIS LIFE THROUGH US.  When He is seen, is when others see us. I hope that you are receiving what I AM saying, here. Because, only, by seeing this, will Father be seen in the earth. We are not who we appear to be, UNLESS it is HIM appearing through us. It is HIM, that is speaking, hearing, walking, eating, sleeping, EVERYTHING that IS, is I AM.  Those who don’t see us as HIM are not beholding us with the Spiritual eyes; they are seeing us through EVE’S eyes.  But, you know what?  Every now and then, they detect a spark of Light in us. It’s sort of a foretaste, as to how ALL will see each other. It is wonderful!

There are those that, even when talking to on the phone or on the computer, that HE is seen, by me, literally. His love flows through them; His words come forth through them; we understand what each other is saying, not as the natural man speaking, but, Father. That love stays with me all day, as long as I keep my spiritual eyes seeing them. Eve is quick to try to bring forth another “seeing,”  but, this is our part of His being seen, keeping our focus single. It is not Him and them, it is Him. Their original Being, who is I AM comes through loud and clear!!  What a blessing to behold. This is the blessing that we receive, that is better than any material blessing that can be bestowed on us.  This is His Light that is being shined, not only on us, but, it is being shined into us.  Praise Him!

It may sound strange to say this, but, we must PRACTICE being and staying in that Spiritual beingness or consciousness. But, you must remember that we’ve grown accustom to seeing and hearing POLLUTION.  Words and sounds mixed with Eve’s teachings to us. You don’t just wake up one day and say, “I think I’ll see as He sees, today.”  It is a constant speaking HIS WORDS to EVE!  She is the one that must come to her senses, not natural senses, but, to the Spiritual Mind of Christ. Believe it or not, Eve is beginning to think differently, in many of us. She is not going to be destroyed, she’s being re-educated.  She is being RE-PLACED!!  She is like the Prodigal Son, coming home to his father. She is on a trip, re-turning to her husband. She is beginning to quieten down, because she is HEARING her husband call out to her. This is TRULY, “THE DEEP CALLING UNTO THE DEEP.”

You all have heard me speak of Fatherhood Consciousness. I want to explain what this is. What we are conscious of, IS what we see as being real. This is Webster’s definition of conscious:

(a) “Aware of one’s own existence, sensations, and environment; (b) Capable of thought, will or perception. (c) AWAKE.” (end quote)

Consciousness can be deliberate. Eve has fooled us, I believe, with our concept of “spiritual”.  We feel that we must be in some kind of trance, go into “deep meditation” and not be aware of anything around us. I don’t believe this. Wasn’t Paul WIDE AWAKE and ALERT when He encountered Jesus? Better yet, wasn’t our Pattern, Jesus, wide awake, when He HEARD FATHER SPEAK?  Wasn’t He wide awake when He DID as He SAW FATHER do? You know why He was? Because as He moved, spoke, laid hands (and NOT lay hands), He didn’t see HIMSELF doing these things; He saw His Father doing it THROUGH HIM!  When He touched someone, He saw Father doing the touching, because HE KNEW WHO HE WAS ONE BEING WITH!  You know why those folks got healed? Because He knew that they saw, materially, so He touched them, BUT, He saw them as they really were, not the way the natural sees people. He KNEW that I AM was right there in front of Him, when He saw someone!  Oh beloved, it makes all the difference in the world, and “out” of the world to see each other as we really are. Like I said, it takes practice. And please know, I am not talking about “mere mortal men” doing the practicing, I AM speaking of those who know who they are. What we focus on becomes our consciousness.

I want to share something with you that I PERSONALLY have experienced. When we feel that someone is coming against us, for whatever reason, be it family, friends or “enemies”. We PREPARE ourselves to be presented with that “coming against us”. We carry that ATTITUDE with us when we go to see them. And sure enough, what we expect happens. We’re greeted with coldness, meanness and conflict.  BUT, start practicing SEEING THEM AS WHO THEY REALLY ARE. Practice RECEIVING THE LOVE OF WHO THEY REALLY ARE! PRACTICE!! It DOES take PRACTICE! But, what YOU behold comes to be the real. I have been going through this over someone that I love dearly. But, just this past weekend, the words I was greeted with was, “I AM sorry!”  I didn’t even want to stay!!  I wanted to just get alone and praise and thank I AM for BEING WHO HE IS!!  I was seeing this person through Eve’s eyes, before; NOW, I see that person as their true “I”-dentity. They really are who they really are, they just aren’t aware of it yet. They aren’t CONSCIOUS of their true being.

You know, I’d like to make a correction to something I taught. Remember when I said that this world is an illusion? Well, it’s NOT THIS WORLD that is an illusion, IT’S THE WAY WE VIEW THIS WORLD. Father WAS an invisible God. But, that is no longer true. It is HIM that walks and talks through this body that people think is THEM. He is NOW VISIBLE!! He IS seen in all the world. It just depends on who is doing the seeing; and where their focus is.

We all know “hateful” people. Now, just think of that word, “hateful”. It means, full of hate. We all know that we are out of the very substance of Father. Now, ask yourself, “is there any hate in Father?”. No, there’s not. So, why are we seeing the hate in that person? It’s because WE are looking with the influence of EVE!!  When we remind ourselves WHO that person really is, there is no hate to be seen. And I don’t care what anyone says, we DO have a choice of how we see folks. And again, I’m telling you, IT TAKES PRACTICE! It’s like, one day, we wake up and realize that we are seeing folks differently, and we wonder, “When did “seeing” come into me”!!  We don’t even know when it became a reality to us. That is SPIRIT!!  Not going into a trance to see that person as “good”. Folks, Eve have had us looking through HER eyes, but, with the practicing, the blinders are being removed.

We need to realize that Eve WAS ONE WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD, in the beginning. And ALL that Father gave the man, He also gave EVE, because they were one. So, Eve has the same POWER that the man has! There is ONLY ONE POWER!!  He placed His power in the body, the mind, the whole ball of wax. BUT, how it is used is a different matter. That power that was received by Eve, works just the same as it works with the man!! We’ve always thought, “Oh the power of God will overcome the power of the Devil”. Well, the devil is none other than the thoughts that Eve brings forth in people, and she is working with the VERY POWER THAT WAS GIVEN HER. Remember she was part of the “created man, male and female..”  And IF there is ONLY ONE POWER, guess who’s power is being used by Eve? God’s!  Doesn’t sound too religious, does it?  But, it’s true.   We are not to battle Eve. We are to LOVINGLY guide her and lead her way of thinking back to how and who she was before the material things caught her attention. You see, when God said, “behold the man IS become as one of us, to know good and evil…” We must remember that the man and the woman were one. It was the soul that wanted to know good and evil, because she had the thought that she would be as God, if she knew both; BUT, what she didn’t know was that SHE ALREADY WAS what God is. So, she started her own way of seeing things.  And that is where I believe she has influenced the way we have understood the bible. But, her man is lovingly leading her back home, where she belongs.  Folks, this is US that I’m referring to. I know that some of you know this.

In the next part, I want to share with you, some things that I AM seeing differently, in the bible.

PART FOUR

We can go on the Internet and find thousands of different opinions about the bible. All the denominations, alone, show us that man is not living by allowing the Holy Spirit to do the teaching!!  Why, man has even decided, what books SHOULD be in the bible, and what books SHOULDN’T be in the bible. At one time, they all were, and supposedly, all were inspired by God. But, man said “no, not this one, yes we’ll allow this one…” EVE’S LEADING!!!   And think on this; IF God gives us a truth about who we are, and we teach “well, we’re not YET…”, then how can we say that the Holy Spirit is saying, “NO, you’re not yet, but, someday..” ? Folks, the Holy Spirit doesn’t contradict Himself, just because we WON’T accept the truth of who we are, because we base everything on appearance and action. We need to wake up, it’s time!

Ok. Now, I want to look at some scripture. Remember, I am just putting this out there for you to think about. Take it before Father. Let me know, what you hear.

IS 45:7-8, “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I THE LORD do all these. Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: le the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I THE LORD HAVE CREATED IT.”

Now, let’s remember the names of God. OK? HE said, “I AM.” Tell my people that I AM sent you.”  This was God talking to Moses. He told Moses what His name is, “I AM”.  Also, remember that Adam and Eve were made in His Image; out of exactly what He was; and they were just like Him. The only thoughts that they had, were His thoughts. UNTIL, Eve decided she wanted to APPEAR as He was. Her thoughts changed, she (the real her) did not do the changing. She still had all that He was, because she came forth from Him, when He made Adam both male and female. (and I do hope that you know this has nothing to do with the gender). She still had/has His POWER, everything that He made her with, is still within her. That makes her a creator. WE ARE creators!

Now, this word “LORD”, used here in IS 45 is defined in Strongs as: “the) self-Existent or Eternal; Jehovah, the JEWISH NATIONAL NAME OF GOD, the Lord.”

Now, does this say, “the name that God gave Himself?”  No, people, Jewish people gave Him this name! IF Jewish PEOPLE gave Him this name, then IT WAS NOT IN THE ORIGINAL WRITING, THE INSPIRED Word that God gave. It is MAN-GIVEN.  Pollution has entered in. But, let’s go on.

“The Eternal”    John 3:15, “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have ETERNAL LIFE.”

1Tim 6:12, “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called…”

Question:  There are people who do not believe in God. They also believe that there is no life after, they pass from this natural realm. Does what they THINK, change the fact that ALL have ETERNAL LIFE?  No. No, it doesn’t. We ALL HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. We’ve ALWAYS BEEN, ARE and ALWAYS WILL BE!

“Lord Rev 19:16, “And he hath on vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

Rev. 1:6, “And hath made US kings and priests unto God…”

Question:  Lord of Lords. Plural. This shows me that there are more than one Lord. (although we are ONE in Him, still a many membered body of Lords).  He also made us KingS. Same thing.  Let’s look at John.

John 15:5, “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.”

Ok, who is this speaking through Jesus? It is Father. And HE said that WE are the branches. He is the vine. Right? Ok , let’s look at Jeremiah.

Jer.23:5-6,& 33:15-16,  “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord that I will raise unto David a righteous BRANCH and a KING shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.  In his days Judah shall ye saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and THIS IS THE NAME WHEREBY HE SHALL BE CALLED, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Now, look closely at this. Who is it that is called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS? The Branch. Who is the Branches? WE ARE!  Whose IMAGE are WE created in? Father! The Branch and the Vine are One. Connected. We cannot be a branch, without a vine. And the Head cannot be separated from the Body. As I said, before, we are as much Father as Father is of Himself. We came out of Him. There was NOTHING FOR US TO COME OUT OF EXCEPT HIM!! What does that make us? Him. The Head does the thinking, the Body does what the Head says. Now, who did Father tell us, in John, that we are?  The branches, right?  And what does Jeremiah tell us this branch shall be called? LORD!!!  Notice, in Jeremiah, the “he” that shall be called Lord, “he” is NOT CAPITALIZED!  This is foretelling us and who we are. God back over it. Meditate on it. Allow Father to show you. Don’t let the threat of “religious blasphemy” keep you from the truth of yourself.  This is a people who know that they are ONE WITH AND IN I AM.

We are Kings; Priests, Eternal, self-existent (because we are one with Him), and we are called LORD, and also, our true name is I AM!

Now, what I want to leave you with, in this part, is this:  ALL things were created OUT OF (of, means OUT FROM WITHIN) God, right?  Aren’t we told that there IS NO EVIL IN GOD?  So, the “LORD” that created the evil, spoken of in Isaiah, which “LORD” created this evil, our Creator, in whom there is no evil, or the “LORD” which we are, while listening to Eve?  Keep in mind that she still has that same power that God placed in her, in the beginning.

Think on these words:

John 1:16

Col. 2:9-11

Heb 10:39

Heb 13:9-11

PART FIVE

I will be using some of the translated work of Jonathan Mitchell.  A precious brother who translates the bible back to the Greek Translation.

I want to start this part of this sharing with Rom.1:20 20. For from [the] creation (framing; founding) of [the] ordered system (world) His invisible things (qualities; attributes) which – both His imperceptible (or: perpetual) power (ability; capacity) and divinity (divine nature; godship) – are habitually seen clearly (held within view by looking down; perceived), being continually comprehended (understood; grasped by the mind) in (by) the things which are made or done, in order for them to be continuously defenseless (without a defense),”

Let’s look at a couple different translations of this verse.

Phillips Modern English: Rom.1:18-20, “Now the holy anger of God is disclosed from heaven against the godlessness and evil of those men who render truth dumb and impotent by their wickedness. It is not that they do not know the truth about God; indeed he has made it quite plain to them. For since the beginning of the world the invisible attributes of God, e.g. his eternal power and deity have been plainly discernible through things which he has made and which are commonly seen and known, thus leaving these men without a rag of excuse.”

Jerusalem Bible: “The anger of God is being revealed from heaven against all the impiety and depravity of men who keep truth imprisoned in their wickedness. For what can be known about God is perfectly plain to them since God himself has made it plain. Ever since God created the world his everlasting power and deity–however invisible–have been there for the mind to see in the things he has made. That is why such people are without excuse.”

Now, let’s not start gathering all of our thoughts on “all the wicked, evil things that we’ve done”. This is not what this is all about. If you notice, this is about “keeping TRUTH IMPRISONED.”  And where does it tell us that God’s anger is disclosed?  “FROM HEAVEN.”

Now, I think that everyone who is reading this is well aware that OUR MIND is HEAVEN or it is hell.  His anger comes from or is revealed from within our mind. Our thoughts. And we can look at either HIS view of this OR Eve’s (our soul’s) view.

We’ve been looking at Eve’s or our soul’s influence on all things. She has been influencing our thoughts, our health, our prosperity, our family, our UNDERSTANDING and even the written Word. BUT, folks, we are at the place in Father’s plan, where WE DO NOT HAVE ONE EXCUSE for going along with Eve’s way of thinking. We NO LONGER can say, “I didn’t know”, because it’s (the Truth) has been here all along. It’s WITHIN US! We have to go, not to man and not to some church, to get the Truth. WE HAVE TO GO WITHIN!  If we don’t, we won’t see the Truth in action, within us. We won’t know who we are. We will do nothing except what we’ve been doing for 2000 yrs; dying. This is the plain and simple truth.

This may be hard to take, but, the Truth is, if we are sick, we caused it. If we are broke, we caused it. If our family is a mess, we caused it. How?  By living on excuses, such as: “Only God can heal me; only God can give me money; only God can change my family.”  Well, Let me ask you, WHERE IS GOD?  He’s within you and me!  Where is His Power?  It’s within you and me. Where is HIS IDENTITY?  It’s within us!  Plain and simple. We MAKE IT HARD to understand. But, HE has made it plain, clear, right there ready to come forth through us. What’s stopping it’s appearing?  OUR MIND! Our dependence on MAN, instead of Him. And this is because we’ve been listening to Eve’s thoughts about who and what we are; and what we can or cannot do.

Look at the Jerusalem translation: “the depravity of men who KEEP TRUTH IMPRISONED..”  To keep imprisoned means it’s in us, but, not being allowed to come forth! And look at where it has been; “have been there for THE MIND TO SEE.” I don’t care what anyone teaches us, it’s in our mind! They can argue it all they want, but HE has/is making it clear to us. And why are we WITHOUT EXCUSE today?  Because Father also told us, “YOU HAVE the mind of Christ.He did not say “you WILL HAVE”. But, we’ve let MAN, who is under the influence of Eve, tell us that we can do NOTHING!  Wait, wait, wait, God has to do it. Well, where is God? It IS His Life that is being lived, not ours. He’s waiting for US to do what WE’VE HEARD HIM TELL US, just as the Pattern Jesus did!!  We have no more excuse, folks!

In the last part, I left you with the question: “Which LORD created evil?” (IS.45:7) Also, WHO is called “the Lord righteousness? (Jer. 33:15-16) This is speaking OF US!!!  We were not just made to BE righteous, we ARE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS!  I don’t care what man says, you cannot get around this! HIS POWER IS IN US, HAS BEEN IN US AND WILL ALWAYS  BE IN US!  The anger (and this is not anger, as we know anger) of God is brought down upon us BY OUR THOUGHTS!  We bring it on ourselves! God’s not doing anything to us, WE ARE! And WE ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE!! We’ve lived under EVE’S thoughts! LONG ENOUGH!

I like what a brother wrote: (Jacob Boehme)

Quote:  “You were designed so that you cannot speak while breathing in, but only when exhaling.   Moving air or wind is a type of the Spirit. Voice is vibration. To speak a “living Word,” is to speak the Word of Faith by the Holy Spirit. This “vibration of life” will not return void. This vibration or frequency moves into whichever realm God sends it, spiritual or physical, and moves upon it, shaping and forming it, to fulfill the purpose of His holy will. This is how our Father brought all creation into being. We are designed to operate the same, but only in union with Him, and fully empowered by Him. Ultimately, every word we speak will be His word or “out-breathing.”  He “breathed” life into us that His life may flow out of us.” End of Quote.

He DOES NOT take back anything that He gave us, of HIMSELF!!  That power of His, IS STILL WITH US, no matter how WE use it. Some don’t believe this, but it’s true. There is ONLY ONE POWER and that is HIS.

Now, the Good News is:  Eve’s husband is now awake! He is in the Garden. He never left the Garden. He’s been asleep. He has not been contaminated by Eve’s thoughts. And he is calling out to her to come home! Hallelujah!! And the rest of the Good News is that, Eve IS HEARING HER LORD’S VOICE calling to her. She is re-turning to her home. Eve is our emotions; our dependence on “seeing to believe”. Her mind is doing flip flops. It’s turning BACK to what it once was; the mind of Christ. She’s BEEN HEARING her Lord’s voice; she just couldn’t find Him because she was LOOKING for the physical !! She now REMEMBERS that Him AND her are Spirit!! And she’s returning to who she really is. ONE WITH HER HUSBAND. You know what she is hearing?

IS 34:17, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME, SAITH THE LORD!”

The weapon that was formed against us WAS EVE! The weapon formed against us was MAN telling us that we are mere mortal men. The weapon formed against us was Eve’s translation of even God’s written Word. The weapon formed against us was the KEEPING OF HIS TRUTH IMPRISONED WITHIN US!!  But, IT’S OVER FOLKS, IT”S OVER!!                His Truth is coming forth and it’s coming forth THROUGH US!  HE IS BEING SEEN….by those who want to see Him. There are those who have grown so accustom to the physical, earthly things that they CHOOSE not to see it as Father, not only made it, but, as it STILL IS. And the “how it is seen” depends on where our focus is.

BUT, There are those who are taking the “enemies” by force. The enemy of THINKING that the illnesses has the rule. The enemy of THINKING that they are downtrodden. The enemy of THINKING that they have to WAIT for that healing. These people KNOW God and they know WHERE and WHO HE IS, and they are honoring Him, by allowing Him to come forth. By ALLOWING, I mean that they are turning loose of the nonsense of logic and they are allowing Him to manifest once again in the flesh!!  They are allowing that overriding power to come forth and rid the illnesses, the sicknesses from the Body that He dwells in!!  How?  By BELIEF. BELIEF in everything that He has told them, regardless of what Eve has had them looking at; the symptoms, the aches, the pain, the deformity of thoughts. They are seeing HIM AS HE IS!! US!  We are the Body that HIS THOUGHTS come forth through. We are the Body of God’s HEAD! We CANNOT BE SEPARATED from Him. WE ARE HIS LIFE!!  When you see US, you SEE THE FATHER!! They BELIEVE THIS, HIS TRUTH!! And they KNOW that there is not disease in Him or in His house.

Also, I want to think about “being created”

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

As I was sitting and meditating on this and so many other things that Father is drawing my attention to, it came to me.  Created. When we think of “created”, we think, well Father thought of what man should look like; how many arms, legs, eyes, ears etc. We think “creating” is sort of like, putting something together, what will be needed, and the shape and form and appearance of the thing, that we want created. But, Father spoke something different to me, regarding US being created.

One meaning for the word “created” is “to bring forth, to beget”. Now, this is another distorted picture that Eve has had us looking at.

John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His ONLY BEGOTTEN SON…”

I think we have had the incorrect thinking when we read this scripture. We have THOUGHT that ONLY Jesus was a “begotten” Son, not created, but “begotten”. We’ve sort of, because of incorrect teaching, separated ourselves from Jesus, because He was “begotten” and we were created. But, this isn’t true.

When my son’s dad and I decided that we wanted a baby, we came together, becoming ONE and we “brought forth” a son. We did not create our son, we begot him. He came forth, from what my husband and I were. Flesh, blood, five fingers, five toes, 4 ears (LOL just checking to see if you’re paying attention!!) 2 ears, and traits of us and our lineage. We did not take dirt and say, “you know, I think we need a son, so here, lets “Create” one. To create is to make something from nothing. We did not do that, we begot our son, from being UNITED and bringing something forth from a substance which was a part of us.

When we were “brought forth” or “begotten,” we did NOT come from NOTHING. We came from the very substance of our Father. We came OUT OF HIM. He didn’t take, as some think, a mass of clay and create us. Look at what the scripture says; Rom.12:4-5, “For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office; So we being many, are one body in Christ and every one members of one another.”

You are not separate from me; I am not separate from you; and we are not separate from God our Father, and HAVE NEVER BEEN. Our thinking, as Eve has taught us, changed but it DID NOT change who and what we are.

Eph 3:14-19, “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, (and if He is Jesus’ Father, then He is our Father too) in whom the whole FAMILY in heaven and EARTH is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; (who is our real and true identity, not this flesh body)  that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye being ROOTED AND GROUNDED  IN LOVE (what is our Father?  LOVE), may be able to COMPREHEND (or understand) with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.” (how do you become the fullness of God?  BY KNOWING, SPIRITUAL KNOWING, THAT YOU ARE HIS FULLNESS!)

So, what Paul is saying here, is that WE ARE TO BE FILLED WITH WHAT WE ARE!!  What are we? We are God’s substance, His LIFE.   So, what does Father tell us about this?

John 1:12-16, “But as many as received him, to them he gave (past tense) power (that overriding power of HIS) to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name; which were born (notice the word “were,” not only is it past tense, it is also PLURAL) which were born NOT of blood, nor of the will of flesh, nor of the will of man, BUT OF GOD! (notice His sons were not “created” but “BORN or BEGOTTEN” where from?  OF or OUT FROM WITHIN GOD).) VS 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father) (“as of” =remember, the word “of ” means “out from within” and “as” is “like”)

We beheld the glory, out from within Him, like the glory of the Father. The “begotten’s” glory was the same glory as the Father’s glory. full of grace and truth. John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spoke, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. And OF HIS FULNESS HAVE ALL WE RECEIVED, and grace for grace.”

Who does Paul say received?  ALL, WE.  And WHAT did we all receive? HIS FULNESS OK, let’s go back to Rom. 1.

16. For I am not in the habit of being ashamed of the Good News, for it continues being (is) God’s power (ability; capacity) into deliverance (being rescued; salvation; health and wholeness) – in everyone (for everyone; to everyone) continuously believing: for (to; in) Jew first, also for (to; in) Greek (Hellenist).

This is what has to change our habits. Our habit of thinking as Eve has taught. We CANNOT think as Eve and as God, it won’t work. All it will bring forth is confusion with that great power that Father placed in us, when He brought us forth, going behind our thinking. He does not take back what He has given, so, we STILL have that great power working behind our thoughts. Think about that for a while. Think how many times a day, we say, “I AM…” well, that great power goes behind those words, whether they benefit us, or condemn us.!!  That’s powerful.

17. For in It God’s justice (righteousness; qualities and characteristics of the Way pointed out; victory of the righteous cause; way of righting wrong; righteous act) is continuously (progressively) being unveiled (revealed), from out of faith, into faith, according as it has been written, “But the one righteous (just)-out-of-faith will himself live.”

Now, this verse, I cannot agree with it’s given interpretation. Because where it says, “Gods’ way of righting wrong…” does not come into agreement with how God sees. In Genesis, we are told “God looked at all He created and saw it was VERY GOOD”..  God does not see as we see or have been seeing. God does not see right and wrong; good and bad; evil and good. PS 139:12, Mt 5:45 tell us, ” light and darkness are the same to God”. ALL THINGS  have a purpose, and most of US is what brings things on ourself.

“The just shall live by faith. What Father is showing me, here, is: “shall live”. Now, He doesn’t say, “just the Spirit shall live” or “just the physical shall live” or “just the soul shall live,” it say’s “SHALL LIVE.”  To me this is Father saying, “you shall WHOLLY LIVE, SPIRIT, SOUL, and BODY!”   By faith.  Faith in what?  In FATHER AND ALL THAT HE SAYS ABOUT ALL THINGS.  IF we have faith in HIM and in what HE says about ALL things, then the faith that WE ARE USING, IS HIS FAITH!  HIS faith cannot bring forth emptiness!!  It brings forth the fruit of what He speaks!!  So, our mind and speech MUST CHANGE TO HIS!

And you know, I want to say something here.  It DOES NOT matter if we don’t understand all that He says, I repeat, it does not matter Because whether we understand or not, HIS word is still true. And as we place HIS faith in His words, HE will bring forth the understanding.  The important thing is to keep putting His Truths in yourself. It will take hold. You will come to understand it as it manifests through you. You may not even know that it has taken hold, until something happens and it just seems to surface!  It’s that overriding power rising within and bouncing the things of the natural off.

18. For God’s personal emotion (inherent fervor; mental bent; natural impulse; anger; passion; temperament; wrath; disposition) is continuously being unveiled (revealed) from heaven upon every irreverence (lack of awe or absence of pious fear; disrespect) and injustice (wrong; unrighteousness; situation or act contrary to the Way pointed out) of mankind (of men) — the ones continuously holding down (restraining; stopping while possessing) the Truth in the sphere of (within) injustice (unrighteousness),

19. Because the thing experientially known (or, knowable) pertaining to God is continuously made visible (made apparent; manifested by light) within (or: among) them, for God made (makes) it visible (manifests it) to them (for them; in them; by them).

20. For from [the] creation (framing; founding) of [the] ordered system (world) His invisible things (qualities; attributes) which – both His imperceptible (or: perpetual) power (ability; capacity) and divinity (divine nature; godship) – are habitually seen clearly (held within view by looking down; perceived), being continually comprehended (understood; grasped by the mind) in (by) the things which are made or done, in order for them to be continuously defenseless (without a defense),

21. Because experientially knowing God, they did (do) not glorify (imagine; esteem; suppose; fancy; conjecture about; hold an opinion of) [Him] as God, or thank [Him] (or: give thanks). But [as a result] they were made futile (vain; fruitless; without profit; empty; useless; worthless; subject to a process of meaningless frustration; subject to exercises in futility) in their reasonings (thought processes), and their [collective] unintelligent (stupid; unable-to-put-things-together) heart was darkened.

Now, in the King James, the words “him” is not in the original writing. It should read as: “they did not glorify as God”.  Did you catch that? “They did not glorify AS GOD”. Notice, THEY KNEW GOD. We experientially knew God. We EXPERIENCED GOD when He begot us and when we came forth just like Him, Eve didn’t realize she was what God was, let her imagination take over. She did not GLORIFY as GOD. In other words, she did not bring forth the Truth of who she was, she took her eyes off of Him, for a second, and everything changed. (in HER way of seeing things). She was God, but when she took her focus off of Him, her imagination became vain. And she saw herself as LESS THAN GOD. And she’s been seeing that way ever since. She expects “bad” to come upon her when she is “wrong” and that’s exactly what’s been happening. She has been thinking with MORALITY, instead, as God thinks and sees things. We must keep in mind, that she is still a creator, with HIS power!!  Folks, this has been describing us and our carnal thinking. We must GLORIFY AS GOD!  That means believing into the manifestation of all that He tells us about ourselves, because He is telling about HIMSELF!!  Otherwise, the foolish heart (mind) of man stays darkened.

22. Continuously claiming (asserting; alleging with pretense) to be wise ones, they were made to be dull (sluggish; moronic; stupid; foolish)

23. and they changed (change; exchange in barter; make other than it is) the glory (esteem; opinion; imagination; supposition; conjecture about; thoughts of; appearance; honorable consideration) of the imperishable (unruinable; incorruptible; unspoilable; undestroyable) God within a likeness (resemblance; similarity; copy) of an image (form; appearance) of a perishable (corruptible; spoilable) human, and of flying things and of four-footed things and of creeping things.

Now, WHO changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corrupible man? THEY, those who had known God experientially!!  Not God. God did not change them “so they could learn” as we’ve been taught. WE changed because of our believing of Eve and disbelieving of HIM.  Now, remember, that power is still in us, so that power went right along behind our beliefs and brought us into being, physically, what we believed, as Eve has taught us.  

PROV 23:7, “as a man believeth in his heart (mind), so is he…”  So, we believed ourselves right into corruptibility! BUT, we’re awake now!!  Hallelujah!!! And our soul, is heading home to our husband, the one we are ONE with.  Some believe we are getting a NEW soul. We’re not. We’re reeducating the one we have had and we’re changing her way of thinking.

24. Wherefore (on which account) God gave (gives) them over (delivered/delivers them), within the full passions (passionate cravings; complete wrath; earnest desires; compiled angers) of their hearts, into uncleanness (impurity), to be continuously dishonored (shamed) – with respect to (pertaining to) their bodies — among (within) themselves,

God is just giving them what they believe. He isn’t punishing them, He isn’t putting awful things on them, He is giving them what they think!  He is a God of Love, and when their thinking changes back to His way of thinking, THEN they will be given what they’ve had all along.  Praise our merciful Father.

25. which very ones altered (alter; change; exchange after) God’s truth (or: the truth of {or, pertaining to} God) within The Lie, and showed reverence to (venerated; felt dread of; worship and show adoration to) and rendered service (poss.: religious service) to (for) the creation (the creature; the framing; the foundation) alongside of (to the side of) the Creator (The One framing or founding) Who is (exists being) well spoken of (praised; blessed; eulogized) into the ages. Amen!

26. Because of this (Therefore) God gave (gives) them over (delivered/delivers them) into experiences of dishonor (ignoble sufferings; situations of being unvalued; unworthy passions), for even their females altered (alter; change or exchange after) the natural use into the [use which is] to the side of (beside) nature (natural condition; natural production; generated situation).

Now, from this verse on, is what the church uses to preach against homosexuality. But, as we’ve seen, this is all about, KEEPING THE TRUTH IMPRISONED.  When we believe ANYTHING, no matter how well preached, translated or taught, that does not say what Father says, we are keeping His Truths imprisoned. And besides that, by believing anything that man teaches in the natural, instead of from the Spirit, we are whoring with an adulterous affair; and according to Eve, we will be “punished”, probably by some sexual disease. (Please hear this in the Spirit).

So, I hope you can see what I’ve been talking about, when I say that Eve has even effected the written Word. Our only hope is to let the Spirit teach us all things.

Remember, we ARE Lord of righteousness; we HAVE that overriding power of Father: we are creators; and that power goes behind our beliefs and bring them into being.  And so it is, the world or war etc, is Eve’s beliefs;  whole, pure, holy, perfected, HIS LIFE, also brings forth all this when we believe HIS word. We must meditate DAY AND NIGHT on what He tells us IF we hope to manifest and be seen when folks look at us.  It’s all about HIM!!

And when you hear someone say, “Yes, I agree that we ARE Him, BUT…” shut it down right then. There are no buts. People STILL see us as HUMANS. We’re not. We are Spirit just as He is. This flesh body is just away of being seen. WHEN this body is changed THEN it will be us as much as the perfect Spirit, and the perfected soul. Then and ONLY then will the body be us. So, we must keep our focus on Him and what He tells us we are, and they WILL/ARE manifesting.  Believe it, or believe Eve.  We cannot be both Him and mortal flesh. Flesh and blood cannot enter the Kingdom. ONLY Spirit and immortal bodies will show forth Him and His Kingdom.  Immortal bodies can only come forth through HIS TRUTH.  Don’t imprison His Truth, allow it to come forth and be seen.

So, now, do you see why I say that Eve has even influenced the written Word, or at least the understanding of it?

Rom 8:20, “For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected in hope.”

We’ve been taught that God placed us in this emptiness, this futility, this vanity.  We are/were in this vainity because we thought and desired it because we allowed Eve’s thinking to lead us. And Father’s power that He gave us, in the beginning, went behind our thinking. He is NO RESPECTOR OF PERSONS. In other words, when He gave His power to be a creating force behind our thoughts, He WILL NOT change His mind because of any particular person. What He gave for creating, goes behind creating, whether it is being used for creating what glorifies Him, or glorifies somethng or someone else.

He has HOPE of our waking up!! Because it is HIS PLAN for ALL to come into what they already are HIM!

Unlike Eve, who put the blame on the serpent. We can only put the truth about why we are in the condition we are in, on our own thinking!  God didn’t just say, “Well I think I’ll place my sons into a place of emptiness so they can learn.”  We ALREADY HAD HIS FULLNESS!  AND STILL DO.  But, what we do with it and how we use it, is up to us. But, we will come to manifest Him, ALL OF US.  Each man in his own order.

As I said, this is not a teaching. It is what Father is showing me and you can do with it as you will. And I KNOW that I will not look at scripture the same as I have in the past.  I WILL take it all, to Father and allow Him to give me HIS TRANSLATION of it.

I’m not sure if this will be the last part of this sharing or not. If not, you’ll receive more; if it is, then Father will add to you, His Truth and His Understanding.

PART SIX

This last part of my study of the Book of Romans is quite different from any part of anything that I’ve written.  This part contains a humbling; a new understanding (given by Father); it could be a little embarrassing IF, I thought that we should be embarrassed about what we’ve been shown in whatever realm Father has had us in, before raising us into a higher realm of Him and His understanding. So, please, bear with me, where it is needed and prayerfully take all before Father.

It is a wonderful, loving experience when Father takes us from one understanding into another understanding of Him and His Word. It is wonderful. But, with it comes the attacks of the “knowledgeable” men/women of theology. I use to get upset, and bothered by what “more matured, more religiously educated” people thought and said. I DON’T ANYMORE. Let me, for just a minute, be like Paul and speak “OF LINDA,” not of the Lord. (although there is no such thing). Some don’t realize what that means. I’d like to make it perfectly clear what it means TO ME. When I speak of Linda, it is not speaking as inspired of God. I am not FORCING any of this on you, all you have to do is hit “delete,” and that’s OK.

I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching. Now, I will get to the soul, later, so don’t all, that like to criticize, get excited. I received another email that was sent to me, with LOVE. It seems that when one person’s understanding, is not the same as other people’s understanding, especially those that teach, preach, or whatever, loving intentions become spoken UNINSPIRED words, to correct, warn or whatever. I was told that the things that I teach, contain, “a controlling spirit”; (perhaps it meant “the way I teach) about it, searching myself, it came to me: controlling spirit, hummmmm…well Eph. 4:4 tells us that there is ONE SPIRIT!!  So, praise the Lord. Let me say, the brother who sent the email about “controlling” WAS NOT condemning me, nor was he accusing me. He just told me how some see me. And he said this as a help for me, and I love this brother for being straight forward. It was sent with love. Yet, as a Godly person, I am not supposed to react to mean and hurtful things that are not said out of love , (and I am not referring to that email) and I’m pretty good at letting a lot just slide off of me.   What really gets to me is all the LOVE that a person is KNOWN by, seems to disappear, and no harsh words are spared.(and honestly, I pray for these people, because they AND I are ONE in our Father.)  As I said, I’ve really got over their thoughts, I just rebuke them. Why? Because as “knowing”, as these people portray themselves to be, they are unaware of the POWER OF GOD within them, that goes behind those thoughts AND BRINGS THEM (their thoughts) INTO MANIFESTATION. So, I pray for them. There are also those who contact you and say, “I love what Father is speaking through you, here, let me help you get the Word out. There is no charge, I do it for the Lord.”  Well, I have learned that there is nothing free, EXCEPT the salvation that Father gives. After a while, that wonderful “spirit” of that person seems to forget where it belongs and when they don’t receive what THEY THOUGHT they would receive, that help that was offered (I don’t mean $$) simply ceases, UNLESS you ask, ask, ask. But, you know what, Father has never had me in the place of sitting at any man’s gate, begging. HE DOES DO THE PROVIDING!!  And please believe me; I do not have any problem with any of the brethren disagreeing with what I believe to be truth. I believe that is a way of expressing love to each other, and I believe it is a way of growing. As one brother said, disagreements tend to make me seek Father all the more, and to study more. I have learned a LOT from someone disagreeing and I thank them with all my heart. We all think that we are hearing Father’s voice, or we would not be putting forth the thoughts that we are hoping will move each of us from precept to precept and line to line. Many times, He intervenes and shows us OUR misunderstandings of what HE is saying and it truly OUR BLESSING. For it brings us closer to Him, to KNOWING HIM, who He really is, and who we are. The CLOSENESS is the important thing, with Father. He is truly a God of love, in fact HE IS LOVE! We should just stop right here and praise Him!

I said all this, with my heart, the new heart that Father has awakened within me, to say this. In THIS part, I will be sharing some things, that those who thought I was “way out there,” haven’t seen anything yet!  I would laugh, but, this is very important to me, and I hope to you. In this part, I will correcting some incorrect sharing that I’ve shared in the past. SOOO, let me say this, I am not trying to CONTROL anyone’s thinking, that is up to THAT PERSON, IF any of what I write offends anyone, delete this. It is my prayer that it offends no one. For I KNOW without a doubt that it is Father who is showing me these things. And, although, I am not and have never been a “sign seeker”, Father has provided me with one. And I will share it with you, as we go along.  Now, on with the sharing. From here on out, I will not be teaching, I will be sharing , and it is up to what Father shows each individual, what to accept and what not to. HE IS OUR ONLY DEPENDENCE! TRULY!

I have taught for a long time that our greatest enemy (if you want to use that word) IS EVE, or OUR SOUL. I’ve taught that she is what is/has been leading us into all that is not truth. I have MADE A GREAT MISTAKE, and I ask any of you to forgive me if I have been responsible for any untruths. We all grow, and thank be to Father, there are many of us who are open to and willing to be taken past our past beliefs and teachings. He is to be praised, for He IS and has always been, an ever moving God. NO WHERE in the written Word have we seen Father just idly standing still. And I know that many hold the belief that WE play no part in Father’s Plan, and you all know where I stand on that belief. I KNOW that WE have a part in it. TO DO. There are TOO MANY Words that Father has spoken to make us know, that ONCE WE COME TO KNOW that we are ONE WITH HIM, that we are to be as HE was when He walked the earth as , the flesh man Jesus, that yes, we are in THIS WORLD, this FLESH, NATURE WORLD, BUT “WE ARE NOT A PART OF IT”.  When we come to KNOW that we are ONE WITH HIM, it is then we understand, “AS HE IS IN THIS WORLD, SO ARE WE”. He is THE SPIRIT BEING that He has always been and so are we.

So many are under the deceiving belief that this flesh body IS OUR LIFE. IT ISN’T.  This flesh body is no more than a vehicle for God to walk the earth in. The truth is WE HAVE NO LIFE!!  It is HIS LIFE that is being lived.  Just as Jesus’ flesh body was not His Life, it was WHO WAS LIVING IN THAT BODY, THAT WAS THE REAL HIM. He kept telling us, “when you see Me, you’ve seen the Father.”  It wasn’t JESUS who caused Himself to rise, BACK to the being of the Father, it was THE SPIRIT BEING THAT LIVED WITHIN that flesh body, FATHER.  That is the very reason that ON ONE could take His Life. That is why HE could walk through walls, walk through crowds that wanted to throw Him over the cliff. That’s why His body was NOTHING like ours today. HE KNEW WHO HE WAS! He spoke to His Bones and they changed. He was not seen when He didn’t want to be seen. That body was not His life, it was the Father IN THAT BODY that was and IS the ONLY LIFE. This realm that MAN lives in, is DEATH!!  It is TIME ORIENTED. You live this many years and then you die. You stay around things long enough and you get sick. TIME IS A KILLER OF THE BODY and belief in time, is what we’ve been doing. BUT, once you know that this body IS NOT our life, death and sickness CANNOT touch those who KNOW that they are a Spirit Being, HIS SPIRIT.  And more and more people are experiencing this truth. No, they don’t go around saying, “Oh I don’t get sick anymore, oh, this stroke or this heart attack, can not stay with me”. Why? Because of the way they are received by the brethren!  It’s just like when Jesus tried to tell all, who He was, His very own would not accept Him. They laughed at Him, they mistreated Him, they called Him weird, out in left field etc. But, He has told us, “don’t let the right hand know what the left hand is doing”. Now, if you think that verse is out of context, so be it. Accept what you will, and discard what you won’t. But whichever you do, know one thing, we are no better than Him, we should expect the same treatment. But, remember who you are and their words and acts will not touch you, you will recognize where they are, and then PRAY FOR THEM!  LOVE THEM!  But, remember not with the LOVE of the world. People get really confused with HIS love and the love of the world. His Love does what is necessary to being about His Plan for us all. I encourage you to, when Father speaks something to you, regardless how different it is from what we’ve known, regardless of what folks say, HANG ON TO IT. HE will see that it gets to those who is intended to receive it. And remember this, ALL of God was intended for ALL, but, many keep themselves from receiving for whatever reason; stubbornness in accepting something that is new to them; their church’s teaching; their idol’s teachings, whatever.  But, I will tell you this; to stay in the Spirit IS NOT always spouting teachings; showing how trained one is in speaking; no, staying in the Spirit is, no matter where you are, or what you’re doing, KEEPING YOUR HEART OPENED TO HEAR HIM SPEAK TO YOU.  We’ve gotten so caught up in religious sounding and acting, that it has become a prison.

I want to start out, here, with the soul. I have a new understanding of our soul. We’ve been taught that all emotion is not to be experienced. But, KNOWING WHO YOU ARE, makes that NOT TRUE. Please read the following verses, for they show that Father HAS EMOTIONS.

PS 97:10 – 1 John 4:8 – MT 1:41 – 1Pet 4:14

All these and many more regarding, desire, thoughts, etc, THE LORD GOD HAS THESE EMOTIONS. IF you are ONE WITH FATHER, your emotions are as His is. IF you still regard yourself as MAN, then no, your emotions are the emotions of the world of which you are not a part of. You see, your FOCUS, your KNOWING, separates everything or brings one into oneness. If you know who you are, then like Jesus, you PROCLAIM that. You show forth the things that religion tells you that you are not OR you show forth ALL that Father tells you that you are and have. I want to show you something that I have been, incorrectly, teaching for a long time and I AM HAPPY to have it corrected.

2 Cor 5:17, “Therefore IF any MAN be in Christ, he is a NEW CREATURE: old things are passed away: BEHOLD, ALL THINGS ARE become new.”

Rev 21:5, And he that sat upon the throne said, BEHOLD, I make ALL THINGS new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words ARE TRUE AND FAITHFUL.”

Let me ask a question. What does ALL mean? It means EVERYTHING!!  Now, I know that there are those who are going to say, “Linda, that means all things are new IN THE SPIRIT.”  Well, what are you? If you’re a flesh man, no you won’t see the new, you’ll hang on to the things that you SEE in the natural.  But, for those of you that KNOW that you are a Spirit being, and ONE with God, ALL THINGS ARE NEW!!  Think about that for an hour. You won’t have time to name all that that includes. But, think on this, and take it before Father. IF ALL things are new, that includes YOUR SOUL!!!  Different teaching, isn’t this?  Our soul IS SACED! It is the “ye are complete in Christ Jesus.” It is wrong focus that has been fooling us. But, it’s true. We’re going to be looking at this truth and the reason we’ve believed that the things that don’t SEEM Godly, things we have constantly blamed on Eve, or our soul. We have been working on, excuse me (those who think we do nothing), but, we have been doing what WE were told to do in different scriptures:

“Work out YOUR OWN salvation.”

“Purify YOURSELF, and be holy as He is holy.”

“Be renewed by the renewing of YOUR mind.”

“Life and death is in the power of the tongue.”

“Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.”

“We have the mind of Christ.”

“As He is in THIS WORLD, so ARE you.”

“Call things that are not as though they are.”

“We have an unction and know all things.”

“The only way we are unworthy is if we THINK ourselves unworthy.”

And we DO these things until we are awakened to know who we are, His Truth THEN is manifested as our/His Truth.
