God's hand not mans

Act 7:23 ——>And when he (Moses) was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel.



Lets look at 40 ——> The number 40 represents change or transition; the concept of renewal; a new beginning.

It also seems that God put into Moses heart the call of him to one day led the children of God out of Egypt.



By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. Hebrews 11:24-26

And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian: For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not. Act 7:24,25



Though Moses knew in his heart that God was to use him, his action and motive was not as God’s but his own. For Moses defended one of his own by killing the Egyptian.

See Moses thought as a man and did the actions of a man thinking (supposed) his brethren would see God was using Moses as his delivering hand.

The heart of man might be in the right place; but is the heart of man the hand of man doing the actions of God or is the heart of man in the hand of God?

And the next day he shewed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one again, saying, Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to another? But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us? Act 7:26,27

Here we can see the kettle calling the pot black.

Moses the day before kills an Egyptian that is doing wrong and in killing him he thinks his action is the hand of God.

Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
 
Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye?
 
You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. Matthew 7:3-5



The action of Moses was no different than the brethren that were striving one against another.

 For the actions of Moses only set him up as “….ruler and a judge” rather than a servant of God’s hand.

Wilt thou kill me, as thou diddest the Egyptian yesterday? Act 7:28

For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. James 1:20
 
The very one Moses saved from the Egyptian is the one that wronged his own neighbour and this is the one that pushed away Moses with the rebuke “…. Who made thee a ruler and a judge OVER us?

But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
 
For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. Matthew 10:42-45

Then fled Moses at this saying, and was a stranger in the land of Madian, where he begat two sons.

And when forty years were expired, .… Act 7:29,30


Though Moses was a stranger in the land of Madian we need to wonder if Moses was not being redeemed from the “contention and strife” that existed in his heart as it does in hearts of man.



See the word Madian means "contention: strife"

"

For we see that 40 years expired* (level up) and Moses is to learn the truth of God’s calling for his life!



Now 40 represents a full level of understanding when a person transitions from one level of wisdom to the next. And we see now that Moses is in the “…wilderness of Mount Sina” (Act 7:30)

In the “…wilderness of Mount Sina” Moses stands as a man next to the light that is to change him and bring him forth as the servant of God.


“…. there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.

When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him, Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold. Act 7:30-32



The “flame of fire” is a Light that will make all to wonder. However Moses not only wondered he drew near to behold it and there Moses heard the voice of God!



Many love just to wonder after the “flame of fire” they sit in the grove of the day of Pentecost and want that to come again.

Yet. God has much more for his children if they just draw near to Him, for it is in the holy place one shall see the glory of God.



Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
 
By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) 
 
And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 
 
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Hebrews 10:19-25

Moses trembled and did not dare to look. However, God said unto him, “…Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.” Act 7:33

To many they may see the holy ground, to God he sees the ways of man not fit to stand on holy ground.

“….Put off thy shoes….”

The shoes of man represent the ways of man and the one who removes his shoes for the Lord are they that humble themselves to do the will and works of Him.

“….And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;…” Ephesians 6:15

And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! Romans 10:15



The wilderness life Moses was in was a time of preparation for him to be used of the Lord.

I have seen, I have seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send thee into Egypt.

This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush. Act 7:34, 35

“I have seen, I have seen …..” 
 
Do we see it children of God? Do we hear what we see? God has seen “the affliction of His people….” He has not a blind eye as many think and say but God does see the affliction of His people and not only does He see “I have heard their groaning ….”

Many times our mind our human emotions can distract us from the truth that God sees and He hears our groaning in this Egypt we are in.

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:14-16

Moses in the land of Egypt did not show forth mercy and grace when he took matters in his own hand and killed the Egyptian.



Now in the presences of God, Moses is seeing and learning what it means to “…. obtain mercy, and find grace…”

For it is God who shall go forth and deliver his people from Egypt by sending the prepared one!



Moses in his own condemnation is reminded of the words of the one he saved in his own strength is now the one who is sent by the very hand of God!



The power and might of the hand of God in action “….He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.” Act 7:36

How today the hand of God is at work within His body to will and do of His pleasure knowing what is needed to bring His body “…. to the mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ ….” Ephesians 4:13

Stretched out ARM

God has always been One, that as a Father, He is protector of His children and creation.

Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I WILL REDEEM YOU WITH A STRETCHED OUT ARM, and with great judgments: And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. Exodus 6:6,7

In order for God to call out His, He had to “redeem” them “…with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments ….”

I by His grace would like to focus upon how God today has “redeem” us “…. with a stretched out arm, ….”

We need to go forward to a time when God’s “stretched out arm” is seen in this world.

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 1:14

There was no glory seen when the Lamb of God came before John nor was there any glory of the Lamb of God until His death and resurrection.

The glory that John and many others witness was the glory of the Father who tabernacle in the Lamb and was the grace and truth that filled the Lamb.

The word “dwelt” is ‘skēnoō’ and it means = to tent or encamp, i.e. (figuratively) to occupy (as a mansion) or (specially), to reside (as God did in the Tabernacle of old, a symbol of protection and communion):—dwell.

How do we know that is truth?

Look at John for he …. bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: FOR HE WAS BEFORE ME. John 1:15

“FOR HE WAS BEFORE ME!” Ohhhhhhh such glory for John to know and behold that He who was before all was now dwelling in union with flesh and blood to bring unto this world His “grace and truth,”

The redeeming arm of God!!!!!!

We know from John 1:1 ----> In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS God.

God’s Word, His LOGOS is His promise and He promised to redeem mankind before the foundation of the world.

Throughout the Old Testament (OT) God spoke to the Prophets by His Spirit which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory THAT SHOULD FOLLOW. 1 Peter 1:1

We can see this in the book of Isiah (Esaias) ----> And he (God) saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his (God) ARM BROUGHT SALVATION UNTO HIM; and his righteousness, it sustained him. Isaiah 59:16

To wit, that God WAS IN Christ, reconciling the world UNTO HIMSELF, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:19

When His arm reached forth into the darkness the Prophet Isiah shows us what happened to them that was present that time ----> Who hath believed our report? and to whom IS THE ARM OF THE LORD REVEALED? Isaiah 53:1

Sadly yes, many refused to accept the truth that it was God doing all His will for mankind ----> But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord BEEN revealed? John 12:38

It is no surprise to even see today’s lost claiming to follow Him yet rejecting the very truth of God to follow man made doctrines called ‘trinity’ or ‘twoness.’ They spit out God the Son and have no verse to base their teachings upon. They reject the Truth that God Himself shall carry out His Word in that it is His “STRETCHED OUT ARM” that shall save all that believe in Him and His saving name JESUS!

For the revelation of the God of glory is fully manifested in His name.


Now in order to say the arm is flesh we need to find a Prophet who was revealed that truth too.

Thus saith the LORD; cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. Jeremiah 17:5

So we can see the arm of the LORD is the flesh of the LORD, for the arm is revealed by Jeremiah as the flesh.

As so, the Son of God was flesh just like us; that is, the flesh of man, being a descendant of Adam, as a natural human being with a natural human nature. Yes! Jesus was a descendant of Adam after Adam ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The only difference between Jesus and any descendant of Adam is the Holy Ghost is his Father!

So the arm of God stretched forth into this world veiled in flesh and blood to work out His grace and truth by redeeming all that obey Him.

Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him? Job 40:9

The redeeming power of God would be manifested in the Son of man and trough the Son so all would know it is His saving power and Him alone.

My righteousness is near; MY salvation is gone forth, and MINE arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on MINE ARM shall they trust. Isaiah 51:5

The manifested God is Jesus Christ in glorification, declared to be the Son of God by the resurrection from the dead.

Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,) Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name: Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ: To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 1:1-7

In Jesus Christ alone is salvation, and there is none other.

Therefore my people shall know MY NAME (Jesus Christ): therefore they shall know in that day that I AM he that doth SPEAK: behold, it is I. Isaiah 52:6

And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his NAME ONE (Jesus Christ). Zechariah 14:9

The LORD hath made BARE HIS HOLY ARM in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation OF OUR God. Isaiah 52:10

Lets jump in deeper ..... Gods holy arm, Jesus Christ, in the body of His flesh, is salvation to all the earth.

For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 2 John 1:7

The deceivers and antichrists do not see God's arm in the body of His flesh Jesus Christ but they that do will be the ones to bring salvation to all the earth ....

.....Jesus Christ is come in the flesh ..... Present state of doing ..... He is active today in His body; we are His flesh for His arm to work through.



That which was from the beginning, which we have HEARD, which we have SEEN with our eyes, which we have LOOKED upon, and our hands have HANDLED, of the Word of life; (For the life was MANIFESTED, and we have SEEN it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was MANIFESTED unto us;) That which we have SEEN and HEARD declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. 1 John 1:1-3

Who was from the beginning?

The Word (John 1:1) who is God and God is a Spirit (John 4:24) and as so we can’t not see Spirit; however the Word that was from the beginning, the Word of life was MANIFESTED [seen and heard]…..

 To whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

The arm of the LORD is none other than God manifested in the flesh as the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world.

Nicolaitan ....

Never understand fully what God wants or does just know in His river He has full control ......

The word government/s occurs 5x in the bible.

4X Government
1x Governments.

Now the word is sort of twisted being it came from Hebrew/Greek to the English. I want to list them in what they should be and we can see the difference in them.

The word “government” comes from the Hebrew word “misrah” The Hebrew word “misrah” (“mis-raw”), #4951; means an EMPIRE.

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the empire shall be upon His shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” Isaiah 9:6

“Of the increase of His empire and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the God of hosts will perform this” Isaiah 9:7

The word “empire” used in the corrected translation of Isaiah 9:6 and 9:7 means “the power of the empire”. When the Kingdom of the God is finished being established on earth, His empire and power would stretch from one part to the other part of the world and there will be no end to His empire.

The word “government” used in Isaiah 22:21 comes from the Hebrew word “memshalah” (“mem-shaw-law”), #4475. The Hebrew word “memshalah” means a realm or RULERSHIP.

“And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy rulership into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah” Isaiah 22:21

The world “rulership” in English means a territory over which a person rules.

The word “government” used in 2 Peter 2:10 comes from the Greek word “kuriotes” (“koo-ree-ot-ace”), #2963. The word “kuriotes” means DOMINION (rule).

“But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise dominion. Presumptuous are they, self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities” 2 Peter 2:10

The word “governments” used in 1 Corinthians 12:28 comes from the Greek word “kubernesis” (“koo-ber-nay-sis”), #2941. The word “kubernesis” means to GUIDE (steering).

“And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, guides, diversities of tongues” (1 Corinthians 12:28).

The word “guides” means to steer/direct people to God.

So were did or were does God make a government to rule over people?

What scriptures does the church have to promote the idea of a government in a church that is ordained by God?

I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.

Therefore He says: “When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men.” Now this, “He ascended”—what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth?

He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. Ephesians 4:1-16

Apostles - apostolos #652 = Messenger or a sent one

Prophets - prophetes #4396 = Foreteller or an inspired speaker. This means someone who is sent by God with a divine message.

Evangelists - euaggelistes #2099 = A preacher of the gospel.

Pastors - poimen #4166 = A shepherd who tends herds or flocks.

Teachers - didaskalos #1320 = An instructor who teaches the things of God and the duties of man.

Now looking at those 5 offices of God it shows us a person to teach God’s way. For they are called for the “equipping of the saints” and “edifying of the body of Christ.” No rulership here or government as taught by today’s.



It sure seems to me that God’s apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers are all at the same level and they are His servants to teach His Word for the work of the ministry that the saints shall go forth and do.

“…for the equipping of the saints ….. for the work of ministry…”

The word “EQUIPPING” comes from the Greek word “katartismos” (#2677) means = preparing fully the people (saints).

Apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers serve the people; If they rule over the people then they become a Nicolaitan.


Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant: You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led.

Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord.

And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.

But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.

For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.

For in fact the body is not one member but many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling?

But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be?

But now indeed there are many members, yet one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.”

No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. And those members of the body which we think to be less honourable, on these we bestow greater honour; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty, but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honour to that part which lacks it, that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.

Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles?

Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?

But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way. 1 Corinthians 12:1-31

God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. 1 Corinthians 12:28

God - theos #2316 = Elohim, the supreme Divinity (God)

Appointed - tithemi #5087 = Placed

Church - ekklesia #1577 = Called out

Apostles - apostolos #652 = Messenger or a sent one

Prophets - prophetes #4396 = Foreteller or an inspired speaker. One sent by God with a divine message.

Teachers - didaskalos #1320 = An instructor who teaches the things of God and the duties of man.

Miracles - dunamis #1411 = Workers of miracles

Gifts - charisma #5486 = Spiritual gift

Healing iama #2386 = Healing

Helps - antilempsis #484 = Helps/helpers

Administrations - kubernesis #2941 = To guide

Varieties - genos #1085 = Diverse (race)

Tongue - glossa #1100 = Languages

So lets read 1 Corinthians 12:28 as “For Elohim has placed among the called out people, first messengers, after them, inspired speakers, after them instructors, after them workers of miracles, after them spiritual gifts of healing and helpers, and guides, and diverse languages.” 

Now in  in its context, ALL of the messengers work as one to bring the CALLED out people into the body of Christ.

Time the TRUTH be seen that everyone is to look after each other and help each other; for 1 Corinthians 12:28 is not talking about a government; it is talking about the gifts that God gives to “His servants” so that they can support other members of the body so that we all be in the body of Christ.

Lets look at what Elohim said concerning the abusive powers that are in the body of Christ today.

Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.
   
Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD. Jeremiah 23:1-2

Now what made God mad at these ones that acted as shepherds over His flock?

They were NOT SERVANTS ——> “have not visited them"



Their leadership was one of destroying and scattering God’s sheep from His body. They were not rebuked for feeding the sheep but they were rebuked for not doing their duty of being a servant unto His body.

Instead they were ruling over God’s people unjustly and not attending to their needs.

Just as many today these ones were only attending to their needs.

Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed. And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit.

These things teach and exhort.

If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. 1 Timothy 6:1-5

For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD.
   
Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the LORD. And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err. Jeremiah 23:11-13

How “profane” are these that not only live in sickness but they teach the people of God to err.

Think not that this is without ….. Look withIN the body of Christ and these wicked ones steer God’s people in their profane ways where no one is worthy enough to question them. Yes they placed themselves above all; EVEN ABOVE GOD!



Beware for God sees your folly …..

Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD. Jeremiah 23:16


People of God, Children of the most High! Turn a blind ear to these prophets that claim to speak for Him for they speak vain imaginations from their own heart for their own selfish gains.

To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 1 Corinthians 9 :22

I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings. Jeremiah 23:21,22

Monkey see monkey do …

Sorrow and misery will flood the threshing floor of God, and the tears of these wicked ones and them that follow will not be seen for they have turned the grace of God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

WAKE UP SAINTS …..

Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ezekiel 34:2



Ohhhhhh yes just a voice in the wilderness but be assured a voice from the kingdom will be and is heard in the land once again …..

But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.

But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. Matthew 20:25-28



BE A MINISTER, A SERVANT BY GIVING YOUR LIFE AS A RANSOM UNTO THE MANY!!!!

How blind can one be to not see the servant IS NOT GREATER THAN THE MASTER!!!!!!

So many think of the fellowship as the servants and they the masters. Weekly demanding to be paid for their service as if God has appointed them in His place! Wolves prey around the weak and needy and these ones are no different.

The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being examples to the flock. 1 Peter 5:1-3

Peter the APOSTLE PLACES HIMSELF IN THE POSITION OF AN ELDER!!!!

Feed the flock and be the watcher on the wall NOT BY CONSTRAINT [by force, threats] ……. BUT WILLINGLY!!! NOT FOR FILTHY LUCRE [eagerness for base gain, SELFISH GAIN] BUT OF A READY MIND! NEITHER AS BEING LORDS OVER [control, subjugate:—exercise dominion over (lordship), be lord over, overcome] BUT BE EXAMPLES TO THE FLOCK!!!!!!

How clear is the Word of God for them that are called BY HIS GRACE!

WAKE UP SAINTS!!! AND BE AWARE OF THE NICOLAITANS DEEDS AND DOCTRINE!

   
But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. Revelation 2:6
   
So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Revelation 2:15

Sit and Set Complete

My attention has been drawn to "Now, therefore, if ye will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people: for all the earth is Mine: and ye shall be unto Me A KINGDOM OF PRIESTS, and an holy nation." Ex. 19:5-6:

The Son set up the Kingdom by death, for out of death could Life be offered.

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Romans 5:10

God's Life was in the garden but Adam valued the knowledge of good and evil instead and so death is what humankind was born into. We were suppose to be born into Life but death the "corruptible seed" is what we are born from.

However we now know we are born again and Peter takes us deeper into that truth when he penned "being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the living and abiding Word of God" I Peter 1:14 and 23.

Through the death of His Son is there a born again generation; that are born of the "incorruptible seed."

These children will love the LORD so much that their only desire will be for the pure milk of the Word. As they grow they will mature and will be able to feed upon the strong meat of the Word. And will grow up into the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ by it.

They shall become "a chosen race, a kingly priesthood, a holy nation, a people for a purpose" I Peter 2:9.

The word "peculiar" in the language of KJB was not the same word we have today. The word peculiar [GULLA] meaning "to shut up wealth, to put the jewels, treasures, etc. belonging to a king in a safe, protected place because of their extraordinary value."

It was God's way of emphasizing that His special people would be of great importance, value, and purpose to Him; a treasure above all other treasures.

Who gave himself for us, that he might “redeem us from” ALL iniquity, and “purify unto” himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. Titus 2:14

Chasing the kingdom of darkness the sins of the flesh is to be lost in ALL iniquity and defiled by the sins of the flesh.

Again I want to call our attention to Peter, "But you are a chosen Race, a Royal Priesthood, a holy Nation, a PEOPLE FOR A PURPOSE; that ye may declare the Perfections of Him who called you from darkness into His wonderful light."

I am not a Greek student but His Wisdom has helped me with the Greek language. In "a people FOR a purpose," is the word "FOR" and I know from studying Acts 2:38 that the Greek word "eis" means INTO, and in Peter verse it signifies that forward action of God taking His mature sons and leading them onward, preparing them, purifying them, until they become merged into ONE with His purpose and reality.

Sons brought .... INTO A PURPOSE!

"He knoweth the way that I take: when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold" Job 23:10.

God knows the ways of man BUT does man know the ways of God?

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2

Bless God for His Truth, His Word will transform our thinking into proving and doing His will in and about our lives in this world.

The very will of God was to have a KINGDOM OF PRIESTS! A HOLY NATION OF PRIESTS!

His will has not changed for we see “...the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.” Hebrews 6:20

God's Kingdom Priests are today at the crossroads of the world to minister to all nations the things of God.

God’s kindness, love and grace does not come to give us a blessed life in this world but a new Life through His Son to be a Kingdom where He works in us all His redemption, all His LIFE and we in turn shall take forth His redemptive purposes to the whole creation.

A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD!

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
   
For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
   
For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. Romans 8:19-22

The stage is set, the props are in place and the Light shines upon the main actor and fellowship is to be. What glory, what beauty was seen in this fellowship. The birds of the air were not the ones called nor the fish of the sea to experience this fellowship of a Light that was only shining upon an image molded from the dust of this earth.

Such splendor, such display of love between the created and the creator that would be eternal as the One that formed him was. However the hiss within was greeted by the created, that a hand reached out to grasp the very knowledge of death. A cloud covered the Light and the created hid in the trees helpless and afraid of Him who was the Light.

How dark was the cloud that the created reached out to cover his nakedness with his own hands and all the while a voice is heard in the midst of this darkness.

Adam ADAM where are you!

Love cries out in the storm to them who hid themselves afraid of what they have done. Yet in this darken moment a plan was already conceived before the foundation of this earth; the plan to save His sons from a life of death and darkness, to bring them back into fellowship with Him the very Light and Life of all humankind.

Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. Hebrews 2:17

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
   
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:15,16

The way to the throne of God has been opened for us and it is the way of reconciliation!

We as His sons can find grace to help, in the times of need so that we can be His overcoming sons as we continue in this journey, pressing forward into the FULLNESS of His redemption for us!

Just as Gideon was called, so must we see that before our God is an altar of self (flesh) that needs to be torn down. It is nothing more than the altar of baal that has been passed down to us by the corruptible seed. This flesh has but a head of a bull and it can only be removed when it is TRANSFORMED by the Word of God. For this world serves at the altar of baal by fulfilling their sexual desires (heterosexual and homosexual), pantheism (reverence of creation over the Creator) and child sacrifice (abortion).

It worships the earth by calling it “mother earth,” but all the while it rapes it for its own selfish needs.

MYSTERY BABYLON sits high above acting like nothing will come her way yet she is blinded by her drunkenness that His wrath is poured out upon her for His children are coming out of her.

Far to long has this MYSTERY BABYLON killed the sons of God; However, today she shall be rewarded double by the ones she thought she had killed.

Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. Revelation 18:6

Those who stay in her and pay heed to her lies will be burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

Who can help us .... who can stand before a Holy God and plead upon our behalf?

Such a gulf between God and man. A darken cloud between the Light of Life casts upon humankind darkness and death in such away that all are born only to die.

Who can bridge this gap, who can remove the darkness that has covered the very Light of heaven?

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. I Timothy 2:5,6

YES! Glory unto God for He has sent forth a MEDIATOR between Him and us and this man gave himself as a ransom for us so that we once again can have fellowship with the light of Life!

Christ Jesus the High Priest is our only profession, for He is passed into the heavens that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins.

Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man. Hebrews 8:1,2

The Hebrew word for priest means “one who stands up and draws nigh for another”, and the Greek word means “to minister.” Taking the two meanings and joining them together we have a High Priest that “draws near and ministers on behalf of another.”

Jesus the Son of God has died and paid the price for our sins and has passed into the heavens as our propitiation and our high priest.

Seeing then that we have a GREAT high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. Hebrews 4:14

The Son of God (flesh) and the Son of man (spirit) bridging the gap between God and humanity.

Our high priest is “A minister of the sanctuary” in that He is able to go before God and bring our petitions and sacrifices; and to return with the answer back from God.

Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. Hebrews 2:17

Our high priest has returned unto us as the minister of the sanctuary in that he has opened the way for us to enter and receive forgiveness of sins and that we again may fellowship with the Light of Life and receive power to be sons of God.

Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.

Thus it was necessary for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these rites, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. Nor was it to offer himself repeatedly, as the high priest enters the holy places every year with blood not his own, for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.  Hebrews 9:22-28 (ESV)

Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. Ephesians 1:9-12

Ohhhhhhh the mystery of his will is every man, woman and child are identified in Christ.

As our high priest past into the sanctuary, the true tabernacle he took within our needs and before glory all are able to stand with him and worship God in Spirit and truth!

God now draws nigh unto us through our high priest and the power to take away our sins is approved by God and God is now our ABBA!

God is now through His sons able to minister His life to those who sit in darkness and death so that they can receive the blessings of God through Christ Jesus the Lord!

Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Psalm 103:1

And the king turned his face, and blessed the whole congregation of Israel: and all the congregation of Israel stood. 2 Chronicles 6:3

Then the priests the Levites arose and blessed the people: and their voice was heard, and their prayer came up to his holy dwelling place, even unto heaven. 2 Chronicles 30:27

And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts. 2 Samuel 6:18

As we see the priests would minister unto the Lord and than bless all about them.

But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, ... Hebrews 9:11

Not only is Christ our high priest but his priesthood is greater than any other before him. His blessing comes from heaven itself, the place where eternal Life is seated upon the throne.

Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. John 8:56

A thought is seen and heard as one sees the day Abraham saw Christ and was glad. For you can find it in Genesis 14:18-20

And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

The ORDER (SET) of Melchizedek as seen in the account of Abraham is an ORDER OF BLESSING!

Just as there is Life for them in Christ and no curses so it was with Abraham and Melchizedek. For Melchizedek blessed Abraham with bread and wine which Christ also did at the Passover feast and Melchizedek blessed God for delivering Abraham from his enemies just as the children of God have been delivered from death and darkness (sin).

Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us; ... 2 Corinthians 1:10

who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, ... Galatians 1:4 [Berean Study Bible]

Christ actions is as a cross indeed. In one way he came to do the will of the Father and by doing so he is able to now save any that come the way of him.

Just as humankind have two hands so does the high priesthood of Christ’s. With one hand he is able to save us and with the other hand he is able to touch the very Life upon the throne. Any called minister of God’s will walk as a called priest touching humankind as well as touching God.

Moses spoke of the Levi priesthood as the ones that “.... shall teach Jacob thy judgments, and Israel thy law: they shall put incense before thee, and whole burnt sacrifice upon thine altar.” Deuteronomy 33:10

A spiritual ministry is seen unto God and man spoken from Moses. For Jacob today is the one that walks in the darkness and the true Israel are they that have been redeemed from darkness and walk in the Light.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
   
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; ... Ephesians 6:13,17,18

The offerings that the priest has for God is seen in Romans 12:1 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” and “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.” Hebrews 13:15

How we as the priests unto God will walk in this calling as seen throughout the bible for it is a calling of self denial for a calling of servitude. They that see this will know He gives the Light of this truth and the gace to enable them to walk in it. No man picks this up and no man puts it upon himself, for it is the high calling of God for them that love Him with their all and hate their lives in this world.

For these priests are they that will bless the MOST HIGH GOD and in return receive the bless from God for His people. They will not be selfish in anyway for the blessing given is greater than the blessing received.

“Lo, I come to do THY will, O God”

Just as the fore runner went before us his example is left for us to follow in. For he did say “I am the way” and the way he has opened unto us is the only way unto the Father. His example is not in the pages of a book, but his example is an open scroll upon the hearts of his royal priesthood. Examples of reaching out to minister as well as reaching to Him for all the needed power to do the will of Him.

“For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; ....” Hebrews 7:26

Some may say that was for him but what they miss is that by his death and resurrection God is able to make them He calls holy and righteous and they His sons will be harmless unto all, undefiled from the ways of the flesh and shall come out from the world and be not partakers with their evil deeds.

By the which will we are sanctified  through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Hebrews 10:10 [sanctified=free from the guilt of sin and consecrate unto God]

For indeed Christ died for sins once for all, the Just and Righteous for the unjust and unrighteous [the Innocent for the guilty] so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the Spirit;  ...1 Peter 3:18 (AMP)

In weakness of mind I see my failures in doing as He wills but in my heart I know I can “come boldly unto the throne of grace, that I may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" Hebrews 4:16

For he is “a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.” Hebrews 2:17

For the Light of His Spirit has given me understanding that my high priest “...is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” John 2:2 This Light is the victory of his death within me for he is not as the first Adam but is the last Adam “a quickening spirit.”

This victory is what all creation cries out for and this victory is for His manifested sons so that they may be the needed royal priests unto all and unto God.

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a [special] people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.

Once you were not a people [at all], but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. 1 Peter 2:9,10

The revelation of His Word comes when the vessels are ready to be broken open so that His Light will shine before all to see.  For upon His right hand will once again be seen the very needed power to do His will as His priests towards a dark world and for the Light of heaven.

The very hand that reached forth unto us is our only saving hand.

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

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. Hebrews 2:17

And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2

God’s priesthood is the foundation to the out working of His redemption plan of all ages.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. Exodus 19:5,6

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7

It is when we yield ourselves unto God that He will work His wondrous plan in us, for it is His power that changes us, not of anything of ourselves. It is His bringing us into union with our high priest that we will become His royal priesthood in the earth.

The people for a purpose

The manifestation of the sons of God is what all creation is in travail for: These sons of God will be the empowered body of Christ so that all will know His redeeming power is at hand.

And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. John 17:22,23

The EARTH is the Lord's, and the FULLNESS THEREOF; the WORLD and THEY THAT DWELL THEREIN Psalms 24:1

It is such awesome Truth to know as His sons that all is within His hand and He is God of all.

In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of ALL MANKIND Job 12:10

The trails and tribulations about His sons are in His control and to the end their very breath is His.

The Most High ... liveth forever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom is from generation to generation. And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and He doeth ACCORDING TO HIS WILL in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay His hand, or say unto Him, What doest Thou? Daniel 4:34-35

To know that one’s loving Father has all in control allows that one to put their faith and trust in Him knowing all works out to His kindness and goodness.

To see this Truth in action we can look back to Melchizedek, priest of the Most High God when he blessed Abraham --> "Blessed be Abram of the Most High God, POSSESSOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH." Genesis 14:19

The Hebrew word “possessor” means ‘to erect, create, and thus TO OWN.’ From a verb meaning to contain, or hold.

"IN HIM we live, and move, and have our being ..." Acts 17:28

God has had His hand upon us before we even knew it. We think we had something to do with our walk with Him; which be only pride on our part. We must understand by repenting from our pride and see and know it is all of Him and Him alone.
   
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. Revelations 4:11

Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: ... Romans 3:29

His sons grow in the wisdom of Him that He is indeed “.... the God of the spirits of all flesh” Numbers 16:22

Far to long the Church has taught that some mythology devil owns the earth or that he is the god of the earth. I in shame have hung my head and confessed my guilt of teaching and believing that lie. Over time the Lord has taught me He is the God of “all the earth,” and it is His will to bring about His royal priesthood in this present age.

"Ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people: FOR ALL THE EARTH IS MINE: and ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests."

As Creator and Redeemer of humankind it is God’s purpose and responsibility for Him to do as He wills, not as we think.

And ALL THINGS ARE OF God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was IN Christ, reconciling the world UNTO himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:18,19

It is His loving kindness that He has taken upon Himself to work out the plan of redemption and restoration for His creation through Jesus Christ for He is the owner of this world and His will is to have a “KINGDOM OF PRIESTS!”

It has and is His plan to restore all things unto Himself. “…not imputing their trespasses unto them;…”

Truth be seen that God Himself takes full responsibility for all that has happened to His creation. "For the creation was subjected to frailty - to futility, condemned to frustration - not because of some intentional fault on its part, but BY THE WILL OF HIM WHO SO SUBJECTED IT. Yet with the hope that creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and corruption and gain an entrance INTO THE GLORIOUS FREEDOM OF GOD'S CHILDREN" Romans 8:20-21 Amplified

It was not my will to be here nor the will of any other human.

As so; God is responsible for our existence and He knows we are in the realm of vanity, corruption and sin. When we see that Truth we will desire to know His will, His plan for us and as so we will know our Father!

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you WILL perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: …” Philippians 1:6

The way of man shows us that peace, life and freedom can not be and when all see that, then all will groan within to be made free from the corruption about.

“…we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.” Romans 8:23

God is responsible for His creation and He will and has done a great thing for us all.

“God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a human being, that he should repent. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not establish it?” Numbers 23:19

Them that have eyes to see and ears to hear need to know what the Spirit has to say unto the called out ones. For God has indeed provided the redemption of the world in the Lamb, and now raises up a royal priesthood, a many membered priest in union with our faithful High Priest who set in His Father's throne, the Lord Jesus Christ, to minister the power and blessings of His redemption unto all that have been restored into His image.

Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: … Ephesians 4:13

I so much believe that the Father of all creation is now preparing a royal priesthood after the order (set) of Melchizedek to bring to this world the bread and wine, to resort mankind into the image of Him!

"Because all the earth is Mine, ye shall be unto Me a KINGDOM OF PRIESTS!"

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her [Mystery Babylon], my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Revelation 18:4

The Word of God is the promise of God and He shall complete just as He promised.

For the Word of God is the will of God and His will is all “…creation itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God" Romans 8:21

Yes! A called out remnant will have the testimony of Jesus Christ and they will keep the commandments of God in their hearts, taking their rightful place as sons and priests unto their God. For it is God’s will that will explode in them, that they shall be destined to do all His Word promises for all of creation.

So many today live without a purpose, and as so are sick and tired of what this world has to offer. They are starting to groan within themselves daily as they awake to the system that has no Life to offer them, awaiting the day they close their eyes to a world of death and gloom.

Sin is so rampant about that it's appeal to many has made them wanting more to life but not finding it. The emptiness within is the groaning, the drawing of many to the truth of His purpose and will.

"Because all the earth is Mine, ye shall be unto Me a KINGDOM OF PRIESTS!”

False prophets and false Christ scream of an end, yet each day a new beginning starts with a groan within. Chicken little has gone about long enough screaming of THE Anti-Christ, when in truth many are seeing they are the one’s that are against the work of Christ.

The mark of the beast is no longer a computer chip but a reality of the beast within; that it's soul survivor is self and selflessness has consumed so much of creation that it groans for the liberty of the MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD.

Upon death beds cancer has a hold from the youngest to the oldest, death has no law. Hearts weep and cry as loved ones perish to a sickness that is nothing but a outlook of gloom and death.

Yet! 

Upon bent knees, hands raised to heaven the cry of today for all is “HANG ON - THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD IS NOW! 

Let go of your fears and see that this is the day that the Lord’s promises shall be revealed and many will be in the company of the KINGDOM OF PRIESTS.

And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.” Revelation 5:9,10

YES!

The offer of God’s is for you, and for you to be a part in “… a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.”

This offer is only found in the redemptive work of calvary!

For through death the Lord Jesus Christ actually brought back the world, ALL OF IT, unto His Father! "GOD WAS IN CHRIST RECONCILING THE WORLD UNTO HIMSELF, NOT IMPUTING THEIR TRESPASSES UNTO THEM; and hath committed unto US (THE ROYAL PRIESTHOOD) THE WORD OF RECONCILIATION"2 Corinthians 5:19

"This is indeed the Christ, THE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD," and, "He is the propitiation for OUR SINS: and NOT FOR OURS ONLY, BUT FOR THE SINS OF THE WHOLE WORLD" John 4:42; I John 2:2

This is not some new religion nor is it a dead religion.

But it is a walk with Him as it was in the garden of Eden. God with man!

Yes! It so seems and looks like this world, with its sinful heart, self-will, rebellious and wickedness nature is not of God’s. However! He bought it back with His OWN BLOOD!!!!

“…which he hath purchased with his own blood.” Acts 20:28

For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6

REDEMPTION and POSSESSION are His and as He promises He shall do. For redemption leads to possession and the two can only stand upon the foundation that God WAS IN Christ “RECONCILING THE WORLD UNTO HIMSELF.”

Redemption is the ACT of God in redeeming this world UNTO HIMSELF.

For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts, ..." Psalms 95:6,7

“Come out of her my children” is the voice of today. 

“Come out of her for a royal priesthood is my will for you” A KINGDOM of many priests not as this world has to offer, the kingdom of death!

BUT! The Royal Priesthood which is to minister to all the creation on behalf of God that He would have entrance to possess all of what He has paid for as His habitation.

The sons of God are seeing by His Spirit that the earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world, and they that dwell therein.

BABYLON has kept many back from the reign of His sons in this earth, but today a voice is crying aloud and many are hearing what the Spirit says.

For this gospel is truth and is about “Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, …. Acts 28:31

His KINGDOM is here now within the hearts of His children and they that are without will see and know the door is opened unto them by baptism in Jesus name!

But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Acts 8:12

The body of Christ IS the Kingdom of God in this world and His Kingdom Priests must reign until the kingdoms of THIS WORLD become the kingdoms of our God and His Christ.

"Now, therefore, if ye will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people: FOR ALL THE EARTH IS MINE: and ye shall be unto Me A KINGDOM OF PRIESTS, and an holy nation" Exodus 19:5-6

In view of today’s news one wonders if “all the earth” is the Lord’s. As His sons we do not look at the events of this world as our foundation, BUT we look to Him and His Spirit that enlightens the Truth of His Word in us.

Exodus light has indeed opened the eyes of His sons to the Truth that He will have a ‘peculiar treasure,” a “Kingdom of Priests.” This Light shines forth in the letter of Revelation 5:10 where we see that He “... hast made us unto our God kings [kingdom] and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”

Such a wonderful blessing to know His called out shall be unto Him a “holy nation” that has His promises shall be fulfilled in them and through them so that they may indeed “reign on the earth.


The darkness of doubt has been heard enough from the many that could not see and God is calling out His sons by the Light of His Truth. This Light, this Truth was spoken by Jesus as recorded in John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Yes!

To see is to have sight and that sight is not of the world for the Kingdom of God is not of this world, but it is a Kingdom that comes without observation, for it is a spiritual kingdom and them that are born again of water and Spirit shall see this wonderful kingdom and enter it.

It is and has been a Kingdom of holiness for God is Holy.

They that see and enter in know they must have their sins washed away in the blood of the Son of God, for that blood was pure, holy and sin free.

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: …” 1 Peter 1:18,19

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7

Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)” Hebrews 10:19-23

Follow not the lies of Babylon in that she rejects water baptism in Jesus name, she rejects the Truth that God was manifest IN the flesh, for she says God the Son which is a lie and not Truth: And Babylon sees not the Truth that the Holy Ghost is the Father, the Word and these three are ONE!

The called out are the ones in the latter rain and this latter rain is the rain of Truth upon them that DO hunger AND thirst after righteousness.

They are seeing that "The EARTH is the Lord's, and the FULLNESS THEREOF; the WORLD and THEY THAT DWELL THEREIN"  and as so are assured in their hearts and minds that no matter what they face GOD IS IN CONTROL! [Psalms 24:1]

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. 2 Corinthians 4:7-11

Yes!

The sons of God know that He has everything in control and it is His power that holds and sustain all that trust in Him.

"In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of ALL MANKIND" Job 12:10

God is preparing a priesthood because He owns the earth, the whole world, and all they that dwell therein.

Now that Truth of His will for this earth is seen lets look at our calling as priests unto Him and this earth.

"For every high priest chosen from among men is appointed to act in behalf of men in things relating to God, to offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to exercise gentleness and forbearance toward the ignorant and erring, since he himself also is liable to moral weakness and physical infirmity. And because of this he is obliged to offer sacrifice for his own sins as well as for those of the people" Hebrews 5:1-3 (Amplified)

We know our High Priest has redeemed us with His blood and has given unto us His Holy Ghost. What we need to see is how we must exercise ‘gentleness and forbearance,’ for we ourselves are prone to be entrapped as they are for we still occupy the body of flesh.

Growth can be slow and at times 1 wonders if any thing is happening at all. I have been in sit and set for some time now for it is my manna for my needs.

"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, God's own purchased, special people, that you may SET FORTH THE WONDERFUL DEEDS AND DISPLAY THE VIRTUES AND PERFECTIONS OF HIM Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light." 1 Peter 2:9

As a priest .... wait not as a priest but a "royal" priesthood I shall go forth among humanity, in the midst of the wheel of everyday life, to show forth His virtues, His graces, His Perfections, His lovely character.

As I see that I lean not upon my strength to do so .... For I know out of my belly shall flow living waters of Life. For what could be days of teaching will come out in minutes and the hearer will receive the flow and walk away changed .....

Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Joel 3:10

But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

That no flesh should glory in his presence. 1 Corinthians 1:27-29

Just as Gideon had 10,000 men ready for war and yet God said ""The people are still too many; bring them down to the water and I will test them for you there."

God is God!

He knows the end from the start and He needs not test the heart ..... BUT for the sake of men and His glory He calls them that desires but to bring all glory unto Him.

Let the sons of God knee, to allow this river to flow from within to them without that they may see the glory of Him who has a plan and purpose for all humankind.

I am called and chosen to SHOW FORTH HIS VIRTUES.

Job put it so wisely when he said “Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears.”  Job 13:7

Peter said “that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: …” 1 Peter 2:9

 The Greek word given for 'shew' has only been used once in the New Testament, it is EK-AGGELLO. EK means OUT OF, and AGGELLO means angel, or literally MESSENGER.

How one sees that being His royal priesthood that the message and the messenger become one and all that proceeds from the messenger, be it a message in words, or a life expressed, it is to declare that He hath called us out of darkness into his marvellous light!

 We were “not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”

WHAT TRUTH …. WHAT A MESSAGE TO SHOUT

MY LIFE IS BUT PRAISE UNTO HIM!

It is not only a telling forth, giving voice, but it is a living manifestation OF THE SONS OF GOD.

The Amplified translation gives, 'that you may SET FORTH the wonderful deeds and DISPLAY the virtues and Perfections of Him...

A vessel seen of all reflecting the glory and praises of Him within, seen without by anointed lips!

A belly not given over to the desires of the world but a belly where His Living Words may flow from.

Children of the Light ... not of the darkness.

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us SIT together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might SHEW the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7

The Greek word here for “shew” means "to exhibit, to put on display like a work of art, to demonstrate." The Amplified Bible reads, "He did this that He might CLEARLY DEMONSTRATE through the ages to come the immeasurable (limitless, surpassing) riches of His free grace in kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus."

“Show... demonstrate ... exhibit the riches, of His grace - to those who do not know it.”

I’m telling this world … It is show time!

God’s grace shall be knowing throughout this world by His called sons of God who are sold out to Him as His sons!

GRACE and MERCY in a world of violence and wrath



Daily my heart bleeds as I look about this world and see the suffering from wars, diseases, famine and greed. My heart cries "God my God why!" 

In His gentle and loving way He whispers to me with Words of Life telling me I need to first see before I can make others see.

THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD!

For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth. Act 13:47

All of the earth is the Lord and He has in this darkness light that shineth unto all them in darkness. 

Sons who shall desire not of themselves anymore but be as He was when He walked this earth.

To truly see Christ Jesus is to see one that did not live to do his will but lived unto the will of his Father.
   
I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. John 5:30

I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. John 17:4

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.



Ear not ears ….. He, she, they, them whosoever hath an ear let them hear what the Spirit says.

The royal priesthood MUST hear and what they hear they MUST speak to them that have an ear.

"We are the light of the world" not because of self-will, but because of a God-will.


"Arise and shine, for thy light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee" Isaiah 60:1


They that hate the darkness of this world will hear the royal priest’s words for their words will be the very breath of God spoken through them!!!!!


“… I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.” Act 13:47

The treasure within the hearts of God’s sons shall be seeking His glory and Him alone so that they maybe the vessels of light unto the ends of the earth.



Trust me! The manifested sons of God will shake up this BABYLON world; were only confusing lies exists, for the manifested sons shall speak His word which is Truth and Life.

The establishment of darkness will scream for many sons shall bring light to them that sit in darkness.

They will shout at His sons demanding who they speak for.

They will shout and demand what BABYLON WHORE they attend, but these end time manifested sons of God will be the grown up ones, into the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ, to partake of a greater ministry, that is to set all creation free and reconcile all things in heaven and in earth back into God.


And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; … 2 Corinthians 5:18

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

 “… Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.” John 20:21


It is the burden of the Father’s that will consume the hearts of His sons and they shall carry His burden to a dying world.



My heart cries "Father they have tried everything; they had apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers, they had gifts of healing, working of miracles, they have plenty of money and missionary programs, they have had everything and it did not get the job done ….. Does my ear hear what the Spirit says unto us? 



Let us now try His sonship for this world as it is. 


The problems about me are not on me because I chose to bear them not. The problems about me are seen by His loving eyes and His tears are my tears and His Word of Life is bursting forth of me for a time as this.



I am not need conscious nor am I self conscious but I am seeing His will and destine to be His will conscious.

"

Ye shall be UNTO ME a Kingdom of Priests." 



The Son of God never went around looking for that which He could do. He went around looking to see what the Father was doing. His eyes were fixed upon the will of His Father and their will was in union to the cross, for us by his death we recieve Life.



How much more should we as His sons now have a will of self no more, but a will of Him and Him alone.



Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. Zechariah 4:6

It is God who is sending forth His priests to minister His salvation unto the many tied up in BABYLON’S LIES.



I know in my heart that He by His Truth is unraveling my heart, so that I may indeed be a vessel fit for His use.

Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.

Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. 1 John 2:7,8



Truth MUST find its embodiment, its expression, its manifestation and revelation, in the body of Christ and through the body of Christ.

"Which thing is true," says John, not only in God, but also "IN YOU."

 Whatever is true in Christ must be true in us.  

THIS IS THE MARK OF SONSHIP.

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 1 John 3:2



Jesus is our High Priest and since it is operating in Him, it must come to be operating in us. If it is true in Him, it must be true in us, for He is the head of the body, the High Priest of our priesthood. 



"Be ye holy, as He which has called you is holy." If holiness is true in Him, then holiness must be true in us.

"Be ye perfect, as your Father in heaven is perfect" If perfection is true in Him, then perfection must be true in us.

What God has started in us, HE SHALL DO TO COMPLETION.

So many will quote John 3:16 but how many will quote John 3:16 as the vessel of LOVE for all about to see today?

After all, are we not the sons of God?



"Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of THE FLESH AND SPIRIT, perfecting holiness in the fear of God" 2 Corinthians 7:1



Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:23



The spirit, soul and body of the sons of God will indeed be the dwelling place of an omnipotent God!


For God wants to make our spirit pure, our soul pure and to make our body pure, for there by the River of all Purity shall flow out of us to all around us, so that we shall be a CENTER for an omnipotent and omnipresent Holy God!

That is the object of the purification of the temple of humankind for God to dwell within. 



The messenger and the message shall become one, for all that comes forth from the messenger, be it a message in words, or a life expressed, it is to declare the perfections of Him who has wrought in His salvation in and through us.

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: …. 2 Timothy 1:9,10



The night moon is a reflection of the sun just as His sons shall be a reflection of Him in this earth. The very living manifestations of His virtues, glories, and excellencies for all to see.


The manifested sons of God!
