Sit and Set 4

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

Sit and Set 3

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!"

Sit and Set 2

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.

Sit and Set ...

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

Authority IN Action

Authority in action -----> "Why do your disciples transgress the traditions of the elders? For they wash not their hands when they eat bread?" Matt. 15:2

As most today would give some wimpy answer; lets see what Authority says ----> "But He answered and said unto them, Why do YOU ALSO transgress the commandments of God by YOUR TRADITIONS?... You HYPOCRITES..." Matthew 15:3&7

The Chief Priest, scribes and elders sent ----> "a great multitude with swords and clubs"

Lets look at what Authority says ----> "And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief [robber], with swords and with staves [clubs] to take me?" Mark 14:43 & 48

In other words "Do you think you have ENOUGH MANPOWER to take in one ..... Just one that taught peace and love and to turn one's cheek? One humble, non-combative person as Myself?

Ohhhhhhhh cries many don't give me that Jesus.

But I tell you Authority will arise in His sons, for they shall see Him as He is, not as this world shows Him, a blue eyed, long hair, loving calm face.

Look … John turns about and sees Him standing in the midst of the seven candle sticks and "....when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. "

What wimpy Jesus did John see? NONE! John saw Him as He always was ....

No not today! For today it seems we present this kind one that has a gay rainbow behind His throne when in Truth Paul tells us ----> "They PROFESS that they know God; but in works they deny Him, being ABOMINABLE, and DISOBEDIENT, and unto every good work REPROBATE" Titus 1:16

Come on sons of God take a stand and face the foes and present the truth of His Word as one that walks in His Authority. For about us are the 'ABOMINABLE', 'DISOBEDIENT', and 'REPROBATE'.

Let me remind you that these are they in the midst of us for they 'PROFESS that they know God'.

Through out the book of Acts the Church encounters the enemy and not once does it lose the stand it was called to show forth. Not once did they let the bars of captivity hold them in. They praised the living God more and more and upon their lips was the Truth .... the doctrine of Jesus.

Paul asked the Corinthians if he needed to come unto them with a ROD in his hand.

God help us to stand in the AUTHORITY YOU INVESTED IN YOUR BODY!

"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man LOVE THE WORLD, THE LOVE OF THE FATHER IS NOT IN HIM" I John 2:15

NOT .... NOT .... What part of NOT don't we see and understand. How is it many act like world loving children of God that are safe in the Father's arms when the Truth brings forth the rebuke that they are NOT IN HIM!

Mercy, MERCY, cried the servants of God throughout the old testament ..... what do we think that God has changed today?

I know He CHANGES NOT! Yet the vain imaginations of many today present a wimpy God; a God that puts aside His holiness to welcome the sinning child in bondage to the flesh.

"You blind guides, which strain out a gnat and SWALLOW A CAMEL" Matt. 23:24

Don't we see how so many strain at the gnat but don't realize the heart has consumed a camel!

A gnat that is so small, is the big issues so many today as blind guides see; NOT the heart filled with sin.

Yes ... YES! Cries a soul when a gnat is seen and behind backs a camel is consumed as pleasures of the flesh chock the very sheep.

I know it is such a comfortable bed to lie in when the sheets are coverings that hide the sins of many.

HOWEVER Jesus rebuked the many that thought different "Give not that which is holy unto the DOGS, neither cast your pearls before SWINE, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and REND you [‘tear you in pieces’] " Matt. 7:6 ..... are we any different today?

Hand in hand with them that reject Jesus name, climbing upon ladders that avoiding the gate to the kingdom; Looking about in amazement at the beauty of so many wolves with hearts filled with evil passions of death.

"The light of the body is the eye: if therefore, your eye be single, your whole body shall be full of light. But if your eye be evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the LIGHT that be in you is DARKNESS, how great is that darkness!" Matt. 6:22-23

DARKNESS .... HOW GREAT IS THAT DARKNESS ..... How does darkness dwell with Light? How does cold dwell with hot? How does evil dwell with good?

Only when the eyes be not single but full of selfish gain and contentment.

Scares me .... Brings FEAR in me. How great is the darkness. How great is it when one thinks he is abiding, walking in the light when his heart is full of darkness but his mind is enlighten enough to say 'I AM OK!"

'ABOMINABLE', 'DISOBEDIENT', and 'REPROBATE' is the one consumed by darkness thinking sin can be one's friend!

GRACE .... GRACE comes the shouts of these ones' ..... GOD IS LOVE. God loves us IN our sins. God respects our short falls.

Fools ..... show me your faith and I'll show you my faith BY MY WORKS!!!!!

"For they [Pharisees and Scribes] bind heavy burdens and grievous to be born, and lay them on men’s shoulders..." Give your time .... give your money .... give your heart ..... give your mind. DO THIS .... DO THAT .... all the while Jesus tells these one's  "...but they themselves will not move them with ONE OF THEIR FINGERS" Matt 23:4

The burden of Truth is laid upon the backs of the fold and yet these shepherds will not life one finger to give a hand. For their hand is busy trying to find a way to satisfy their own greedy hearts.

So many cry this is the sin of the America Church but let me tell you this is the sin of MYSTERY BABYLON. God is not going to fix this mess ….NO …. He is not .... He is calling His own OUT. He is ready to pour forth His Holiness, His Godliness upon such wickness for it is NOT of Him nor can it be.

The Sun is to no more reflecting off the moon but soon off the faces of His sons; The Light of truth will be seen in this day and age of do what you will as long as it don’t hurt no one.



"And why call ye Me, LORD, LORD, and DO NOT THE THINGS WHICH I SAY?" Luke 6:46



"Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone, but if it dies, it brings forth much fruit. 


He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that HATES his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal" John 12:24-25

GRACE ....

Grace ..... Such a missed used word in the hearts and minds of most Christians today that the truth of the word has lost its value and power for most.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that [‘faith’ is] not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast."

But let’s not stop reading in the middle of a thought...

"For we are HIS [God’s] workmanship [‘achievement’], created in Christ Jesus unto GOOD WORKS, which God has before ordained that WE SHOULD WALK IN THEM" Ephesians 2:8-10

God’s power is my only source of Life and He will accomplish in me the GOOD WORKS that He has willed for me to walk in. 

See it is God’s grace, not a so called free will of mine, but God choosing me to come to Christ; and I bless Him for His faith that He has gifted me with, for I know it only comes from Him and Him alone.

I see and I know it is His goodness that has brought me to repentance, not an act of mine in any way. And s time passed His goodness consumed my heart with Truth that I saw my sins needed to be removed and in the waterly grave I had remission of sins in Jesus name for I am “baptized into Christ’s death” Romans 6:3

Baptism into Christ’s death put my old man away and I am now MADE free from me to be a son of His.

"For he that is dead is freed from sin... For SIN SHALL NOT have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under GRACE" Romans 6:7&14

Nothing I can do or say will save me from death, but the giving of myself to Him and Him alone for His grace to work in me His Life.

"For the GRACE of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, TEACHING US [‘to train, educate, discipline, punish, chasten, instruct, learn, teach’] that, denying ungodliness and worldly lust, we should live soberly [with a sound mind], righteously, and GODLY, in this present world” Titus 2:11-12

When I allow my lusts to rise, I find my time is so consumed with my self that sin starts to take ahold of me and it is then that I know grace shall abound much more for His love towards me is as a Father’s love for His son.

“ ... My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.
Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. Hebrews 12:5-11

It is His grace that keeps me and it is His grace that enables me to follow His Word.

"Whosoever will come after Me, let him DENY himself, and TAKE UP HIS CROSS, and FOLLOW ME" Mark 8:34

I know by His Spirit that to enter into His Kingdom I must allow His grace to keep me in His salvation for it is His requirements I follow now, not my own.

His Word teaches me that this world has much to offer my flesh for indeed there is fame, materialism, vanity, and to walk after the flesh is to present myself as one of worldliness. To walk after His Spirit by His enabled power is to be presented before all as His son.

For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should FOLLOW his steps: ... 1 Peter 2:21

"He that says he abides in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He [Jesus] walked" I John 2:6

"Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He IS, SO ARE WE in the world" I John 4:17

That is God’s requirement for His children and He is the One that gives power to walk in the good works He has destined for us to walk in.

"To him that OVERCOMES; To him that OVERCOMES; To him that OVERCOMES; To him that OVERCOMES; To him that OVERCOMES; To him that OVERCOMES; To him that OVERCOMES" Revelations 2:7; 2:11; 2:17; 2:26; 3:5; 3:12; 3:21

Seven times we read and we see the truth that one needs to overcome something that will hinder that one from being with Him in the New Jerusalem.

"To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even AS I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne" Revelations 3:21

Is one’s eyes open to see that overcoming is denying the sins of the flesh, the pleasures of this world and being as Jesus was when He walked this earth?

“... but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” Hebrews 4:15

"These things I have spoke unto you, that IN ME ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer: I have OVERCOME THE WORLD" John 16:33

In Him is our peace, in this world is our tribulation; but we are not down and out but we are of good cheer for He has overcame the world and as long as we abide IN Him we too shall share in that victory.

This walk is not about us in any way and if we think or act like it is we are than OUTSIDE OF GRACE and dead in the works of the law. YES! The law that can not give any His righteousness only they IN HIM will have His gift of righteousness.

“... For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. ...” Romans 5:17

This walk we are in will have its fare share of much persecution and many trails for that is the walk of the cross.

And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?
Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. Matthew 10:22-26

The ones that allow grace to keep them in Him and to walk as He did will be the ones to face much opposition. However! It will be grace that brings them to the end and in the end they shall see God and tabernacle with Him for all eternity.

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. Revelation 21:3

Lets not be as the foolish ones that act like the children of darkness thinking they are going to make it to the end in the flesh. Jesus said “...but he that endures TO THE END shall be saved" Matthew 10:22 and Jesus said “he that endures NOT to the end will NOT be saved!”

This walk is a walk of grace, the very power of God that wants to make us overcomers; and yes persecution is our friend and trials is our path, HOWEVER the end is eternal Life with Him!!!!!

Let this truth ring in our hearts and minds that “By GRACE ARE ye saved THROUGH faith ...”

Grace is the saving vessel of God’s for them that in the past “are saved”; those living now “are saved” and they that shall come in this truth in the future “are saved” There is not another ARK, there is no other way, there is ONLY ONE WAY! And that is THROUGH CHRIST!


That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:7

Good Times

Blessed be the God of our salvation for He alone is worthy of all praise.

This morning is a holiday that is called ‘remembrance day’. It is a day set aside some can give respect to the many that died in the last great wars. To me it was a day of remembrance of what is growing about in the Church that many don’t care to remember or even look at.

The Apostles and Prophets wrote much concerning the times we are in, but much of what they wrote is ignored for the time has come and many are perishing with the shipwrecked fools.

Although many have gone the way of Jannes and Jambres the many forget their folly shall be manifest unto all. II Timothy 3:8,9

See Jannes and Jambres could only resist God so far, and so too will the many corrupt minded reprobates in the Church of today get. For Truth is the latter rain and the Truth that is received will be the Truth to make many free of the folly about today.

Peter shows us that there will be “... false teachers among you, who privily [smuggle] shall bring in damnable heresies..." II Peter 2:1 Although many turn a blind eye to that warning by proclaiming a victories Church, all that truly is being said is but new age teaching that the house of God is clean.

What they miss because of the blinders of lies is “... EVIL MEN AND SEDUCERS [‘deceiver’ ‘imposters’] SHALL WAX [‘advance’ ‘grow’] WORSE AND WORSE, deceiving, and being deceived" II Timothy 3:13

What the eye needs to see and the ear needs to hear is that these ‘evil men and seducers shall grow within the Church .... not within the world.

Darkness can not be overcome with darkness .... Light is what darkness desires to overcome and false teachings is from the only source of death ... DARKNESS!

Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
   
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. II Timothy 4:2-4

Time the Church stopped pointing at BABYLON about and realizes within them are these ones that will NOT endure sound doctrine. For as Paul warns these ones are turning away from truth unto FABLES [falsehood]. Trust me there are many fables being preached today from so called Christian teachers that love to play the blame game using mythology rather than the truth, which is lust, when conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

But there were false prophets [claiming to speak on behalf of God] also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring [unauthorized] in damnable [perdition] heresies [one’s carnal opinion], even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
   
And many shall follow their pernicious [destroying] ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of [blasphemed]. 2 Peter 2:1-2.

If we say that was in Peter’s days I sure hate to see how far our day has gone.

For so many today are nothing more than hypocrites!

What is a hypocrite we may ask? One who puts on a false appearance, to hide his/her real motives, a phony, fake and a fraud.
   
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
   
And no marvel; for Satan [savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men] himself is transformed into an angel of light.
   
Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. 2 Corinthians 11:13-15

These hypocrites only desire the things that be of man rather than God, and are but an offense unto the Truth, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Time the sons of God arise and speak the Word of God with the AUTHORITY; For the Father has given unto them His Word! For the Truth spoken is the very Word of the Father through vessels He has anointed to see and speak!

"...out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks" Matthew 12:34

So many look for the letter of the word. Thinking to themselves they follow the Truth when they only follow with a carnal mind that is not transformed by Truth. And when the Truth is presented they back away from it not realizing the voice of the Shepherd is speaking through His sons.

The Truth is kingdom seeking, the very throne room of God. Where one enters in to find rest from his own works knowing all has been done for them and by faith it is theirs to walk in and live out.

That is what sons of God teach.

For they are but His humble servants to feed the lambs and sheep within the fold of God. Not for filthy lucre's sake, nor for gain, but for godliness and holiness within the hearts of the fold.

Ohhhhhh the echo of the self willed that desire nothing more than to hear smooth things spoken unto their cold worldly hearts. The very stone that was rolled away by baptism in Jesus name is the stone that covers the hearts of many that have kicked out the very Life.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Revelation 3:20

ALL ... All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. II Timothy 3:16, 17

Sure seems like the time we are in is the time we must let the dead bury the dead as we lead the way. For they that see and hear are being readied for the wedding that is to come. Just as Jesus said to “follow me” we must obey His Word and press forth through this mess knowing He is indeed the only Way for Life! Let the dead take care of dead matters of this world for it is not our home nor ever will be for it must pass away for the bride to come.

And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.
   
And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: ... Revelation 21:9-11

As I look about I start to see more and more how “.... a man's foes shall be they of his own household’. Matthew 10:36

And the household of many enemies [foes] is in the household of God! Ephesians 2:19

Dumb Dogs

There is only ONE God our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ.

Any that bring not this truth receive them not for they have not obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God. For their tongues will hiss a lie that will only beguile many with enticing words.

Words that promise not the kingdom of God, rather the kingdom of man.

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. Colossians 2:8,9

They speak not from Him, for they know not Him, nor do they follow after Him.

These wolves that roam about speak great swelling words of man’s wisdom but are nothing more than letter teaching fools that are dumb dogs that can’t bark.

Most will partner up with these wolves for filthy lucer sake, supposing gain is godliness.

Just as Judas, so are these, turning from Truth to money thinking God will bless them when all they are doing is hanging themselves from the truth and death shall have its way with them.

For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
   
These things command and teach. 1 Timothy 4:10,11

These wolves have forsaken the way of truth teaching that the Son of God is risen. Some of these dumb dogs go as far to say God the Son.



No where is it taught in the New Testament that the Son of God rose from the grave.



For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:40



The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.  Luke 9:22

Only they that have Truth are sent to teach the sheep and reach the lost, the rest are but dumb dogs that bark not for they know not.

His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Isaiah 56:10

Beware of these dumb dogs for they will look like true sons of God. They will talk like sons of God. They even will walk like sons of God. But their fruit will be nothing more than the works of the flesh.

They will be as water less clouds drifting about trying to toss others in their boat.


For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
   
Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
   
Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
   
And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
   
I have coveted no man's silver, or gold, or apparel.
   
Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.
   
I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:27-35

The Son of man is the Spirit from above, that the bloodline according to the flesh that He used was the Son of David, and that the manifestation of the Spirit in flesh and blood is and was the Son of God.

Behold ....

What phrase is repeated the most times by God in the bible?

"He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches..." ....... Seven times!

Yes seven times God speaks that and I see why .... Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Revelation 3:20

Has the selfish love of today infiltrated the hearts of the called out as it did in John’s days?

Have we become so self-sufficient that blindness and spiritual deafness has closed our spiritual ears and eyes to the living Word of God! Are many listening to the parrots that squawk a Word but not .... THE WORD?

Looking like and sounding like the Laodiceans we must “hear what the Spirit says” to be overcomers in this age.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will eat with him, and he with me. To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father in his throne. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches. Revelation 3:20-22

We must have the “ABIDING" Logos of God dwelling in us, bringing revelation to us or we will be as the lost.

Sheep hear His voice, goats butt the truth!

Heads of wheat bow to the Spirit, tares refuse to.

And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Revelation 19:10

To prophesy is to open one’s mouth and let the Word of Jesus testify through them as a member of His body.
   
We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 1 Peter 1:19,20

Love never fails: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 1 Corinthians 13:8-10

Jesus did not promise to leave a book in my hands when He left this world.

He promised the “Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” John 14:26

The Word has not cease though many think it has because the bible they hold has nothing new added to it! The Logos, the Word of God is alive within His body working at making it His image in this world!

Buddha is dead, Confucius is dead, even Mohammad is dead, but our Father is still alive and speaking to us and comforting us through His gift the Holy Ghost our “Comforter.”

33 years have come and I have seen that the truth to making me free is mine and walking away from the so called religious world has been the key to my eyes seeing the reality of Him (Word) abiding in me.

“.... Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. ...” John 3:3

Jesus shows us “My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.”

Today the house of God according to religious church is nothing more than a den of lies, taught by thieves that still rob the truth by placing it with a compromising lie!

After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things. Act 15:16,17

God is not going to bring back to the laver, the alter, the menorah or even the brazen serpent on the pole. For it all had to be lost and taken from us least we start using each of these things in an idolatrous manner.

For … Thus says the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that you build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?

For all those things has my hand made, and all those things have been, says the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembles at my word.

He that kills an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrifices a lamb, as if he breaks a dog's neck; he that offers a grain offering, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burns incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations. Isaiah 66:1-3

How many today work at teaching lies that surround an Old Testament Covenant that was done away in Christ? How many hold to the letter of the law and reject the Life of Christ? How many teach a salvation based upon what one says and does rather than the truth that Christ did it all and all He did will be what saves them that abide in Him!

So many still use things that are seen to resist the Holy Spirit. They even use those things that were once given by God, but have lost their true spiritual meaning because God has moved on. When the glory has gone out and the Holy of Holies is empty, continuing on with religious services and sacrifices as if God were still present is the same as idolatry.

God does not dwell “.... in temples (church buildings) made with hands; as says the prophet, Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will you build me? says the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? Has not my hand made all these things? You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you do always resist the Holy Spirit: as your fathers did, so do you.  Act 7:47-51

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 1 Corinthians 3:16

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said,

“I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.

Therefore go out from their midst,
and be separate from them, says the Lord,
and touch no unclean thing;
then I will welcome you,

and I will be a father to you,
and you shall be sons and daughters to me,
says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me" John 10:27

The Word of Life is stripping away the image of my flesh so that His glory may be seen from me.

And the Father who sent me has himself borne witness to me.
His voice you have never heard,
his form you have never seen;
and you do not have his word abiding in you,
for you do not believe him whom he has sent.

You search the scriptures,
because you think that in them you have eternal life;
and it is they that bear witness to me;
yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. John 5:37-40

Let all who have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the ecclesia (called out) of God.

But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth." John 4:23-24

And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is thirsty come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Revelation 22:17

Power and Promises

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)

Bless the LORD for I have been delivered from a "great" death as long as I trust Him for His power. For He will continue to deliver me unto that final day when He calls me home.

No more sorrows
No more pain
All my sins washed away in Jesus name!

Power from above NOW dwelleth in my heart

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: ... 2 Peter 1:3

You see it church? He called 'us' to glory and virtue .... and not just called us, He is the 'divine power' which we can walk in to have that life and godliness ... NOW!

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Peter 1:4

I don't know about you, but my heart shouts "GLORY LORD JESUS!"

I have within me the 'divine power' and the 'precious promises' of His word to escape the corruption that is in the world, which is about me in the form of lust. I've been made free, for His truth leads me to life. My heart has a new beat, for it died to the lust of the world and I am called to walk in His glory, in my everyday life, given by Him through Christ Jesus.
