WHEN OUR VEIL IS REMOVED

One of the most graphic SYMBOLIC REPRESENTATIONS of MAN in the Bible is found within the Tabernacle of Moses inside of the HOLY of HOLIES, hidden in the ARK of the COVENANT. This symbol is the CLAY JAR overlaid with GOLD. It is a holy depiction of the FINISHED WORK of CHRIST. It shows FATHER’S CREATION as the FLESH MAN [clay] now FULLY COVERED, OVERCOME, TRANSFORMED by the GLORY, HOLINESS, PURITY of CHRIST, Himself.
When Moses went to the top of Mount Zion and met with God and was given the tablets displaying the Ten Commandments, written personally by God Himself, he came back from this face-to-face encounter with God a totally CHANGED man. His FACE SHONE – was aglow with the HOLINESS of the PRESENCE of GOD. He had a foretaste of what would eventually become a REALITY for all of MANKIND – A TOTAL TRANSFORMATION or RE-CREATION from FLESH to SPIRIT… but a NEW MAN not only with a SPIRIT and SOUL… but with a SPIRITUAL BODY as well… a body that can function equally well in either realm.
The children of Israel were so overcome with FEAR by the GLOWING of Moses’ face that they begged him to put a VEIL over his face to cover that HOLINESS – that remaining MANIFESTATION of the PRESENCE of GOD. They had not yet been prepared to receive TRUTH about who they were… about the PLAN Father had for ALL of mankind. The necessary ingredient that would begin to bring forth Father’s PLAN – the BIRTH, DEATH and RESURRECTION of JESUS – had not yet come forth.
Even after Christ came to earth, as Jesus, and lived before men – a perfect example of what Father wanted to see in His creation… and Jesus died on the cross of Calvary so that ALL men might have the opportunity of being TRANSFORMED into this IMAGE of CHRIST… man still believed that he would have to die to be brought into that place of PERFECTION. He thought his only way out of this LIFE was DEATH.
Jesus defeated death on the cross. This was Father’s Plan in motion. Jesus was submitted to THE PLAN. This crucifixion was necessary. It would open the door to ETERNAL LIFE for ALL of mankind. Jesus’ life showed mankind there was a better way to live and now His death was going to provide the way for them to have this “better way” for all of eternity.
Because we have pushed most all of the information given us in the Book of Revelation – off out into some time beyond NOW and called it End Times… we have missed the truth of what has already been appropriated for our use RIGHT NOW. And this subject of DEATH is one of the main points that needs to be addressed – concerning our perception of what man has called “End Time Events.”
Jesus went into hell Himself while he was on this earth. He took the keys to death and hell… and both death and hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. Many authors on our website have written much truth about Hell and about the Lake of Fire and I’d refer you to the Topical Index on our TEXT CD or recommend your doing a computer search on our website at www.lighthouselibrary.com and locate some of these author’s articles to read so you can get a more clear understanding of what those two entities truly represent. I’m especially thinking right now of the many articles that Jan A. Antonsson has written about hell and what she has been shown as present truth on this subject.
Some scriptures that might help in your search on this subject:
(Rev 20:14) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.
(Rev 20:13) And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them:
(Joh 10:10) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Jesus’ death, once and for all, insured that we would never have to die again. He died AS US on that cross. We DO NOT have to go by way of the grave in order to enter into ETERNAL LIFE. Our faith in His sacrifice purchases life for us – and more abundant life than most of us have yet walked in. I often think of those that have declared their faith in God, but have not yet been empowered by the faith OF God… as being like the man that is given $5,000,000 – deposited in a bank account with his name on it and given a check book… but never takes the first step of writing a check and cashing it so that he might have provision for his life. Here is a perfect example of faith without works!
I’ve known for most of the years of my life that I did not have to die because of Jesus’ death in my place… but I only recently began to truly SEE that I could LIVE FOREVER if I would only change my thinking. One of the scriptures that began being ‘implanted’ within me was:
(Pro 23:7) For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:
And I began to comprehend… that so long as I continue to think I am going to die… death will have power over me… that it is only when I truly capture the faith OF God, believe that He sent me a way out of facing death – JESUS – and allow that Truth to permeate my very being… that I will be freed from this illusion and move into TRUTH and this TRUTH will SET ME FREE from the LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.
There are those that are quick to point out this scripture to you:
(Heb 9:27) And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
But, I am convinced that the only death we must encounter is: the death of SELF… and all that it represents: FLESH, CARNAL MIND, and SELF WILL.
There are a company of God’s creations coming forth in this season that are being TRANSFORMED into the SONS of GOD – not just SPIRITUALLY REGENERATED and EMPOWERED, but PHYSICALLY CHANGED as well. There is a VEIL that is being REMOVED from this COMPANY of mankind today – FORERUNNERS of ALL of MANKIND. They will be used by FATHER to bring this EARTH [both our own physical being and the planet Earth, itself] under the TOTAL CONTROL and FULL MANIFESTATION of the GLORY, HOLINESS and PURITY of CHRIST.
Mankind has walked in deception, illusion, without full comprehension of the PLAN and PURPOSE for which he was created. But this is a NEW DAY and this is the HOUR that ALL of CREATION – not just human beings, but plants, animals, rocks – ALL have been awaiting. (Rom 8:19) For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
