The Search For Truth

TRUTH ..... what a thought .... what a word.

Would not truth be the complete goal of humankind to find in their quest in this world, this universe?

Humankind has been on a quest to find truth in every area they can. Be on mars, the moon or even in the ocean.

Humankind has turned their minds over to others hoping to find truth. For religion is as the best selling book on the world's market. Any time a new teacher, preacher or positive word comes out many scoop up the new book to find in no time the truth is but as a morsel. It has no substance, no life saving words.

It is but the recycled words from a book many hold dear to and yet see not nor hear.

In this age we stand in truth is not seen, only crumbs that have fallen down that the many clamor to and fight for thinking these crumbs will give them a better HOPE in the darkness of this world.

All the while a voice echoes in this wilderness, in this dry and wearily land.

See humankind with natural minds can never see nor comprehend the kingdom of God that is at hand.

To behold its majesty, glory, beauty and Truth one needs to bow his heart in humility before God, confessing the limitations of his natural mind and the blindness of his heart, and ask the Lord to open his eyes and give him understanding, then, a spiritual light will flood his mind with the truth he needs to know.

See humankind my hold a book but they forget the penned words long ago concerning the seducers of this age.

"These things," said he, "have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it (the anointing) hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him." I John. 2:26,27

Jesus is .... the true Light, which lighteth EVERY MAN THAT COMETH INTO THE WORLD. John 1:9

The TRUE LIGHT shines upon the path of every person that has come into this world. BUT to see this Light requires one to bow down in humbleness of heart looking to Him for His will to be.

The Church needs to see it is the working of the Holy Spirit in this age to lead us into all truth.

.... "The anointing teacheth you all things, and is truth." ....

Ohhhhhhhh glory to God for the anointing teaches us ALL THINGS and it is TRUTH!

Truth is the pathway to LIFE and Truth will MAKE one free from DEATH!

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32

Just as the sun gives you a shadow in the day, Truth will give Life unto you as you make your way through the valley of the shadow of death!

How one MUST grasp by faith the very Words of Jesus when He said ---->"I will pray the Father and He shall give you another comforter, that He may abide with you forever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: But ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you ... At that day ye shall know that I am in My Father, and ye in Me, and I in you." John 14:16,17,20.

The world does not bow to the Spirit of Truth but they that do will see Him and Know Him!!!!!

"I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit, when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come. He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you." John 16:12-14

Spirit and Truth in unity within one is the transfiguration of that one into the glorious image of Him!

"All things that the Father hath are mine; therefore said I, that He (the Spirit) shall take of mine and shall show it unto you." John 16:15

Those who bow their hearts shall receive the unity of Spirit AND Truth within them and they SHALL BE THE MANIFESTED SONS OF GOD FOR THIS AGE.

Truth was given to James, Peter and John however Truth without the Spirit was only words from the tongue of man. When the day of Pentecost was come Peter FILLED with the Holy ghost opened his mouth and the ANOINTING of TRUTH flowed to the multitudes.

The Apostle Paul was NOT THERE but the same ANOINTING taught him and he said ---->And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in DEMONSTRATION  OF THE Spirit AND OF power: That your faith should not stand IN THE WISDOM OF men, BUT in the power of God. 1 Cor 2:4,5

Do you see it? One's faith can STAND IN THE WISDOM OF MEN rather than in the changing power of God.

I ..... I desire not to move and be some fool for wisdom sake .... BUT rather I desire to see the power of God flow from within me that the very Words that come forth from my mouth are but Truth and Life unto them that hear that their faith will be IN Him and Him alone.

So be it!
Closing thought from 2 Kings 6 ..... The Syrian armies had surrounded the little town of Dothan. In their hands were orders to capture Elisha the prophet of God who had consistently revealed Syria's plans to the king of Israel.

When the servant of the prophet saw the city surrounded by chariots and horsemen, he cried to Elisha, saying, "Alas, my master, what shall we do?"

And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. 2 Kings 6:16

Spirit and Truth spoke and one heard the Truth but could not see Truth in the Spirit.

And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. 2 Kings 6:17

"Open our eyes, and anoint our understanding that we may behold Thy glory, for by beholding we shall be changed into Thy likeness."

Corona of the Kingdom

“But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Mat 24:37

When Noah and his family stepped out of the ark they saw a new earth that was cleansed of the evil of previous times.

Man cannot see the corona of the sun unless there is a full eclipse.

For the corona of the sun is the glory of the sun .... and the corona of the kingdom is the manifested sons of God ---->And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 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. Rev 21:1-5

This present age is in great darkness but though it try and eclipse the sun His glory will shine about!

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. Isa 60:1

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2Co 4:6

And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. Rev 21:23

Cursed, Cursed, Cursed

"Cursed are you more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field; ON YOUR BELLY SHALL YOU GO and DUST SHALL YOU EAT all the days of your life" Genesis 3:14

We see that the serpent was cursed to dwell in the realm of the earth, and to consume DUST as the sole staple of his diet.

Now, lets not look at this with a carnal mind for we all know that snakes do not eat dust today. See we must understand with the mind of the Christ, that this is not speaking of a literal reptile composed of flesh and scales, but of a reality in the spiritual dimension of which the serpent is but a figure.

See dust speaks of that which is earthy, natural and carnal in nature. It is a position that has a serpent on his belly eating the dust of the earth rather then enjoying the bread of Life and the quenching water of the Spirit.

"Cursed is THE GROUND because of you; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life...By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you RETURN TO THE GROUND, because FROM IT YOU WERE TAKEN; FOR YOU ARE DUST, and to DUST you shall return" Genesis 3:17-19

The first man is of the earth, earthy: … 1Corinthians 15:47
YES Adam was an earthy man, taken out of the ground and destined to return thereto, signifying his NATURE.

Adam was but but DUST! For "the Lord God formed man of the DUST OF THE GROUND" Genesis 2:7

Now we see the curse up the serpent and his realm of dominion. The serpent was cursed to crawl upon the very ground from which Adam was taken, the very origin of man's carnal form, the very NATURE with which he was made with.

See the serpent was commanded by God to inhabit the realm of the natural man, to make his sphere of activity the same lowly, earthy, natural plane in which man would also abide all the days of his life.

The very dust the serpent was cursed to eat was but the dust Adam was made from!

The very diet of the serpent is but that of carnal man.

"That which proceeds OUT OF THE MAN, that is what defiles the man. For FROM WITHIN, OUT OF THE HEART OF MEN, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and WICKEDNESS, as well as DECEIT, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. All these evils proceed FROM WITHIN and defile the man" Mark 7:20-23

Reading and seeing the Words of Jesus Christ one sees the realm of the serpent is within man and that realm is but the heart of man.


The word serpent is from the Hebrew root ‘nachash', which means to hiss or whisper. It also carries the meaning "to diligently observe, learn by experience, to practice divination, enchantments, and incantations."

The serpent, therefore, is a HISSER, a WHISPERER, an ENCHANTER, an enlightener, the illuminator and instructor of men, the SATAN.

When one sees the serpent within that one will know what true repentance is and will know what it means to walk in the Spirit.

Brother James shows us this serpent within when he by the Holy Spirit penned these words ….'But every man is tempted when he is drawn away OF HIS OWN DESIRE (lust) and enticed. Then when DESIRE hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death' James 1:14,15

Was it a THOUGHT, a DESIRE, a command from an INNER NATURE?

Did a whisper of lust ARISE FROM THE DUST OF THE CARNAL MIND, OUT OF THE GROUND OF THE ADAM NATURE where the serpent lies to led that one to sin?

YES! For EVERY MAN is tempted; not by some outside influence, not by some evil angel sitting on his shoulder, but when he is drawn away OF HIS OWN DESIRE!

MY MY MY for so long many played the blaming game when in truth sin arises from within and brings death to them that serve it.

This serpent has its home in the GARDEN OF GOD!

The heart of man was but the ground where the seed of Life was to be planted but instead Adam allowed the subtile lie to be planted.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44

When one sees Truth one will understand the parable of the sower and that one will be born again of the “incorruptible word.”

Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 1 Peter 1:23

Shebna or Eliakin?

Scripture reference Isaiah 22.

Shebna represents the authority of the old man, the carnal mind, and all the old religious systems of man.

Eliakim was called of God to replace Shebna for Eliakim represents the bondslave of the Lord, one who had an ear to hear what the Lord says, and a heart to obey His word and do all His will.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants (bondslave) things which must shortly come to pass;  ... Revelation 1:1

God does not, nor will He call or use a Shebna type for that type has only its self to improve.

For Shebna was living in ease and splendor while all the trouble was going on, heedless to the problems that were piling up. Just as many today live a life satisfying to the flesh all the while thinking they are doing God’s will.

Shebna abused his authority and spent the king’s money on useless things. For he built for himself a sepulcher.

Now we must not look at the sepulcher with the carnal mind but in the Spirit.

The sepulcher was Shebna building up of self, just as many are today. Presumptuous men that love the esteem place, and high praises of men. Sitting in seats that show themselves to be of great importance, rather than down with the servants.

Makes me wonder why so many struggle with the book of Revelations ..... maybe they need to be as Eliakim rather than Shebna.

Now lets look at the Shebna that Jesus faced and read what He called them ---->Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Matt 23:27-33

The Lord has taken ALL authority and power from the Shebna and has given it unto Eliakim. For Eliakim is a type of Christ in heart and mind.

See Eliakim means "God raises up." AND YES! God can raise up the government of His kingdom in the hearts of His called and chosen elect, and this He does sovereignty by His Spirit. His kingdom is one of Spiritual administration, not a democratic organization as most religions are today.

Now let the one’s called see what God will is for them -->For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to "think of himself more highly" than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
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 one of another.
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness. Romans 12:3-8

I am a child of the resurrection .......

Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them OPENLY, triumphing over them in it. Col 2:14,15

Maturing by His Word, I am seeing much more than the death and burial of Christ. Faith sees I too am a partaker in His death and His burial and that is not where He has left me.

I am a child of the resurrection .......

Carnality has a cross about one's neck ..... Carnality has a cross about a building .... Carnality only sees death in the empty cross!

Carnality keeps one IN death!

I am a child of the resurrection .......

My eyes see but a world passing away .... This hour of man holds not my interest!

One world government, One world ruler, One world of peace .... I see not!

So many Sadducees about teaching .... NO resurrection, pointing at the empty cross. All the while the Spirit teaches His sons that they are the child of the resurrection!

Soul destroyer these Sadducees are.

One's walking in their own natural mind that breeds questions and deny the authority of scripture, by their unbelief to make God devoid of power!

I am a child of the resurrection .......

Let not Martha's doubt of a present resurrection birth a powerless Life within today's sons.

For the resurrection is above all else a person and that person is none other than our Lord Jesus Christ who died, who was buried, and who rose again.

It is not one's belief in a past or future resurrection that makes them children of the resurrection.


It is our identity with Him that makes us one with that resurrection which He both here and now is!!!!!!!

Endless scriptures can roll of the tongue of a man versed in the bible!!!! BUT! Identifying one's self to Christ is the true identity of one living in the resurrected Life NOW!

“He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live,
and whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die?”

It is not the cross before me, but the risen Lord I see. For the cross has pointed the way TO HIM and His Life for me to LIVE IN!

I am a child of the resurrection .......

It is faith from Him that birthed me into the likeness of Christ’s death, and it is like precious faith that now identifies me with the resurrected Christ.

“If we have been planted together in the likeness of His death,
we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection.” Romans 6:5

From the foundation of this world God wanted sons to be made in His image and likeness!!!!

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: ...... Genesis 1:26

And the second Adam, the Lord from heaven is the quickening spirit that shall make man in His image and likeness.

“Whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.”

Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. Revelation 20:6

I am a child of the resurrection .......

“Nevertheless, I live yet not I, but Christ, liveth in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

The “I” that I once was IS dead; the “I” that now lives is Jesus Christ.

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Romans 6:4

Dead House Guest

To reckon it so is to see and believe the truth.

Likewise “reckon” ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:11

Reckon = To take into account, to make account of.

Some find it easier to believe they will never die than to believe they are dead already!

KNOWING THIS, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin MIGHT be destroyed, that henceforth we should not SERVE sin. Romans 6:6

Without knowing one remains a servant to sin. For the Truth is what will make one free!
And have put on the new man, which is renewed in KNOWLEDGE after the image of him that created him: .... Col 3:10

Such strong words to see, understand and most of all walk by. So many times I see my old man in the mirror and wonder why WHY.

I tried the way of name it claim it .... I tried the way of praying it through ... I tried the way of doing good more than evil. And all the time my old man smiled more and more at me.

I tried studying more, spending more time in His Word, more time feeding the Saints and yet this thing called sin was as close to me as my mind.

I kept trying to die to sin, yet found my testimony is that I am not alive in Christ. Yet. More and more I continued to strive for perfection, and through it I realized my testimony shows me I do not know that I am are born of God, and my life is not my own.

I see how I have failed in knowing I was bought with a price, and I am Christ's, and I am God's workmanship.

In such striving I have declared that God does not always do things with perfect precision.

I found myself TRYING to become a son of God, and by it I did not know who I was, and I thought sonship can be obtained by sweat, by tears, and by works of the flesh.

Truth ALIVE within shows me I am placed as a son in the proper season, it cannot be rushed. For groweth is time and time can not be a foe.

I see that as I struggled to enter the Kingdom of God, I did not not believe the Kingdom is already in me.

The TRUTH came forth in season and by His Light I now see the kingdom is WITHIN!

And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17:20-21


For to reckon is to see it as a finished fact!

When one dies, that one is dead to the world! It is a fact! The dead person can not respond to anything of the world and the world can not inspire the dead. No more work, pain, sorrow or any suffering whatsoever for the dead are but ceased from this presently reality.

Now let me ask you ..... Paul said by the Holy Ghost within “....How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” Romans 6:2

When one is dead to sin how does that one respond to it in any way? How can sin tempted one? inspire one? entice one? The root is dead the tree dried up and dead branches be.

"Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for His seed remaineth in him: AND HE CANNOT SIN, because he is born of God" 1 John 3:9

Ohhhhhhhhh let me tell you scriptures spoke louder then my thoughts ..... dead. How can I live any longer to something that is dead within me. Ahhhhhhhhhh but that became my answer.

For so long I tried the bridle and bit of the works of a law that was nothing more then my own self righteousness. I tried so hard to make my mind do what I thought was right and all the while I saw no victory over or defeat of that old man, that only grinned back at me.

John penned Holy Ghost words burnt in my mind, bringing to my understanding the dross that needed to be removed so that the pure Light would shine forth for all to see and know.

"Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin ....” My mind wondered back and forth, am I a son of God or a son of Adam? Am I born again or am I deceived?

That is when He spoke to me and said He identified Himself with me so that I by His grace can be identified with Him. And when He identified Himself with me He destroyed the house guest that was residing in my body!

Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. Romans 7:17

I see now that I am NOT the house guest; but it once dwelt in me!!!!!!

Now then by His Light, I Reckon myself dead -- "For I AM DEAD, and my life is hid with Christ in God"

"For you died [to this world], and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God. " Col 3:3

Jesus DID SAY, "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me" John 12:32

YES! I am dead to this world and Jesus has drawn me unto the Kingdom of God!!!!

Before I entered the Kingdom of God I have to face the cross and upon that cross is death and I MUST partake of that death to HAVE LIFE!

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Romans 6:4

That day the Son of God died is the day we died with Him for the law put us there!

He died and we died with Him, and in seed form, were raised from death BY the LAW OF LIFE!

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:2

Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the WORD of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 1 Peter 1:23

When we see the Light of His Word than we shall present our bodies as a LIVING SACRIFICE, holy and acceptable (because of the cross) to God; for that which is presented to God is an offering to God, a burnt offering while we yet live in these vessels of earth.

We will cease from our works then the burnt offering will be consumed! We have no old man to offer unto God for upon the cross it is dead but the new man is the offering we are, the pure sacrifice that truly is holy and acceptable unto God!

Hiss as air

And they were both naked (Strong's H6174 - `arowm), the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. Gen 2:25

Now the serpent was more subtil (Strong's H6174 - `arowm) than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? Gen 3:1

Naked ..... subtil. Both different words in our language yet in Hebrew one and the same word.

'arowm, to be (or make) bare... (through the idea of smoothness) to be cunning (usually in a bad sense).

The next thought is talking. The woman is talking with a serpent. hmmmmmmmmmmm

WHAT! only a serpent talked? or did the woman know serpent tongue to talk to the serpent?

The FIRST communion we read about is between a Woman and a serpent.

Yes Adam talked with God; but the first communion between dust of the earth was indeed a woman and a serpent. Ohhhhhhhhhhh there might have been much talk between Adam and Woman, but it is not recorded for us to read about. BUT! What is written is written to show us something as a warning concerning the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

How odd it is and yet how revealing it is to see these two naked/subtle creatures are having communion! Imagine that, man's first communion and it was with a serpent, and it continues to this day!

Let me go on recorded and say "The serpent DID NOT HAVE VOCAL CHORDS!" The serpent could not talk to a human anymore than us today talking to any animal. A serpent hisses and science today tells us snakes don't communicate with each other for they are not capable of clearly hearing airborne sounds.

This serpent was closer to the woman then Adam was!

LETS SET THE PATH STRAIGHT ..... Woman was "bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man." So as the serpent was next to her it was also just as close to man.

Lets look not at this serpent with a carnal mind for that is indeed the serpent within mankind.

Evil is NOT without .... but evil IS within.

But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. James 1:14

When man obeys the hiss within, man bows to his own serpent and as so he is enticed of his own evil.

The dust names the dust and the dust lives up to the name of the dust!

And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. Gen 2:19

The calling of the creature showed the nature that was to be and yet the one that isn't seen is the one that hisses to the Woman with a plan to make her wise as God.

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Gen 3:4,5

To this present day the hiss lives along and they that obey the carnal mind follow the hiss that leads to death. (Romans 7:6)

They that have their eyes open to truth are the ones made free from the hiss to serve in newness of mind. (Romans 6:4)

The hiss of a serpent opens the way for the "THE MOTHER of ALL LIVING" and the tree of life is guarded, the footpath no longer seen.

Serpent like Adam, Adam like serpent, for both are naked and subtill in the natural ways.

Today's serpents hiss out this gospel mixed with the flesh, works is the object of salvation; grace and truth lost in the darkness of cunning minds.

There was NO fall of man but a descending to a lower realm, that of death!

How sad to see the world today as the fellowship of BABYLON, breaking the bread of the serpent assuring all .... God is pleased!

The way to heaven is open to one and all don't worry about your nature God loves you as you are. Hisses the serpent before the cross that is the only plan of salvation; the kingdom is at hand!

Ohhhhhhh yes the Word is not seen, but twisted by carnal minds presenting victory without a cross.

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he MIGHT destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; .... Hebrews 2:14

YES! The serpent is alive within them that are not made free by the Word. Though they proclaim they are set free, I've wondered how one that is dead can once again be set free.

The dead need not to be set free ...... BUT MADE FREE!

But now being MADE free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:22,23

The set is dead! But the MADE is free! For they are truly the manifested sons of God!

Sad to see, even sadder to say the many that think they are set free are only children of disobedience that walk according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air. Whose hiss is the air breathed in by the ears of disobedient children that think they are set free.

For this one that has not been destroyed, is the devil many follow; but to them that know the MIGHT is a present truth that has MADE them free from the devil within. Sons they are to a God who is but full of grace and truth!

KNOWING THIS, that our old man IS crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not SERVE sin.
For he that IS dead IS freed from sin.
Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
Likewise RECKON ye also yourselves to BE dead indeed UNTO sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:6-11

UNTO ..... UNTO .... why does that word ring a bell in my heart?

And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them UNTO Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. Gen 2:19

The serpent nature was given by Adam for it was as subtill as man himself.

When TRUTH MAKES ONE FREE there will be no carnal mind, Satan is found cast into the bottomless pit, having no foundation upon which to stand. He is destroyed, rendered totally useless. Until then he will be seen manifesting his subtlety through religious minds.

How many hear the hiss "You shall not surely die,"

How many hear the Spirit say "You shall never die"

Yes a hiss and the Spirit are as one .... AIR breathed in the mind by the ears.

What breath are you my friend drawing upon?
