Dead House Guest

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hiss as air

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This serpent was closer to the woman then Adam was!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What breath are you my friend drawing upon?

"...my brethren, ye...are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter. 

What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law...” Romans 7:4 -7

“Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.”  Romans 7:12 

“For we know that the law is spiritual...” Rom. 7:14 

"...The letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. 2 Corinthians 3:6 

“...the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones...” 2 Corinthians 3:7 

“But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.” Romans 7:6

We might also be reminded that Jesus said: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.” Matt. 5:17 

“For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.” Romans 7:9

To many these verses are confusing, and the many that find them confusing are at the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and NOT at the tree of life. See whatever tree you feed from is the tree your soul will act upon.

In these two camps are they that say the law is dead and it kills, and the others say it is holy, it is spiritual, and it is good.

What way does your soul see?

I will say I find no fault in the law, none whatsoever! 

It has been a part of my walk; furthermore, God's law will be with us always; that is, the law will be with us as being fulfilled forever in our lives.  

This is not legalism nor is it liberalism ...  It is a way of life!

See the law that exposes sin and works death is not a factor with the sons of God.

YES I SAID THAT ...... and if your soul just moaned you should look in the mirror and see the tree that feeds your soul.

"Knowing this, that the law is NOT made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers" 1 Timothy 1:9

Every person who is lawless needs the law!!!!! For the law is not for the righteous; It resides in God’s sons by nature, and every jot and tittle of it is fulfilled as easily as breathing air.

But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. Romans 8:9

The LOVE of money is the root of ALL EVIL and If you feel that you have to lie, cheat, and steal to make it in life, you neither know the law nor the Lawgiver. 

You are lawless ... and the WORD OF LIFE is not viewed in your soul. For "...the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.” Romans 7:12,  and "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”  2 Timothy 3:16

The bible we hold this bible that we teach from and preach from IS NOT LIFE!

It can make the eyes of the beholder feed from either tree and they will feed the sheep what their souls see.

Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. John 5:39

Life is not found in the bible (scriptures), not in the letter, not when they are taken from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

The Spirit of the Word will point the Way; and life can be received from them when they are freely given as broken Bread to us by the hand of our Lord.

To many soulish men presenting Jesus from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is but spreading confusing BABYLON LIES.

Taste not .... Do not .... Touch not .... are the devices of BABYLON to keep one trapped in death!

Time one sees attempting to fulfill the law by subjecting oneself to its letter is an impossibility.

It can't be done. 

I was so caught up with the wrong tree that I found myself struggling to measure up to some religious standard of “Christ likeness.”

Over time grace and mercy taught me that my acting the part of a law-abiding saint does not make a person Godly.  See Godliness is never the result of outward performances; our Godliness comes as the result God's holy law residing within and radiating naturally in our daily walk.

The goodness of the Law will then shine like the Sun in a dark world.

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

To be transformed is to know by nature the spiritual side of the law and live, rather than the letter of it in our minds and die.

Jesus every heartbeat was God’s Law.  He was the embodiment of the Promised Law.  Everything He did was, therefore, in the Name (the Nature and Authority) of His Father

Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me. John 10:25. 

Jesus was in UNION with the law because He was in UNION with His Father. 

Jesus and His Father were one in all things (John 17:11,21).

And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. John 17:11, 21

NOW! Having been born of the same Seed, we are called to this UNION wherein we also know each other as only a father and son can know each other. 

Thereby, we are fulfilling the law!

God is Spirit, God is Good, and God is Holy; therefore, the law is spiritual, it is good, and it is holy.

Don't think the law is gone from this earth nor think there is no law because of Jesus!

HOWEVER. When your soul is centered upon itself know that the LAW is for you!

The fruit of knowledge, which makes one wise will be the death of one's self!!!!!!

PART TWO to follow.

Hammered or Beaten work

The lampstand did not need to be beaten to show forth the Light of God. The lampstand took a beating to bring forth Life to all men.

For the beating of the gold points to the sufferings of Christ ...

Then he released Barabbas for them; but after having Jesus scourged, he handed Him over to be crucified. Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole Roman cohort around Him. They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. And after twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand; and they knelt down before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” They spat on Him, and took the reed and began to beat Him on the head. Matthew 27: 26- 30

Just as the gold was pure already He was pure in all His ways. Yet for the sake of humankind He bore much beatings to be the Light of the world, whereby all can receive the Holy Ghost. The Life within Him that came forth to all that receive Him.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:4, 5

The earth worm digs in the dirt and feeds from what it sees not. Just as the unregenerated person feeds upon the world and does not see the true Light of Life. Souls searching not for that what is eternal but for that which is to perish.

Dust to dust.

Looking at what is to perish rather than what is eternal many souls will be what it feeds upon.

For lampstand said "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

He is the Light that shows the way to the Father who is Spirit. No man can see the Father but within the lampstand was the Father.

The beaten lampstand took the fate of humankind upon its self to bring forth Life to all.

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Corinthians 5:21

But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.

In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered. Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters. He says,

“I will declare your name to my brothers and sisters; in the assembly I will sing your praises.”

And again, “I will put my trust in him.”

And again he says, “Here am I, and the children God has given me.”

Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.  Hebrews 2:9-15

Yes throughout the ages the Light of Life was seen to come and even wise men traveled many miles to find the Saviour of the world.

This salvation was something even the prophets wanted to know more about when they prophesied about this gracious salvation prepared for you.
They wondered what time or situation the Spirit of Christ within them was talking about when he told them in advance about Christ’s suffering and his great glory afterward. 1 Peter 1:10, 11

Pure Golden Lampstand

31 “You shall also make a lampstand of pure gold; the lampstand shall be of hammered work. Its shaft, its branches, its bowls, its ornamental knobs, and flowers shall be of one piece. 32 And six branches shall come out of its sides: three branches of the lampstand out of one side, and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side. 33 Three bowls shall be made like almond blossoms on one branch, with an ornamental knob and a flower, and three bowls made like almond blossoms on the other branch, with an ornamental knob and a flower—and so for the six branches that come out of the lampstand. 34 On the lampstand itself four bowls shall be made like almond blossoms, each with its ornamental knob and flower. 35 And there shall be a knob under the first two branches of the same, a knob under the second two branches of the same, and a knob under the third two branches of the same, according to the six branches that extend from the lampstand. 36 Their knobs and their branches shall be of one piece; all of it shall be one hammered piece of pure gold. 37 You shall make seven lamps for it, and they shall arrange its lamps so that they give light in front of it. 38 And its wick-trimmers and their trays shall be of pure gold. 39 It shall be made of a talent of pure gold, with all these utensils. Exodus 25:31-39

In him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1:4

We indeed notice this lampstand is to be pure gold. Gold is associated with that which is Holy to God and His service. The colour Gold in scripture is translated from the Hebrew word 'zahab' meaning gold as a precious metal or of brilliance and splendour.

Now the lampstand was not made of wood then covered with gold. NO

It was a lampstand made of pure gold and one piece. Pure gold is gold already tried by fire. It most likely was gold brought from Egypt that was already tried and as so was pure.

See the word "pure" means separate from all matter; clear; free from mixture.

Gold taken from the earth needs to be put into fire to make it pure. It does not come out 100% pure but it does 99.9% pure. I feel Adam was as pure gold taken from the earth. Adam was 99.9% pure and as so shows he needed that .1% to be pure and that only came from the Lord!

This lampstand was pure gold in that it was 99.9% pure. It did not need to be tired by fire to be refined.
The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. 1Co 15:47

See when the "Word" was manifested in the flesh it was manifested in 99.9% it was just as us.

To over come death the Son of God needed to be as a man. He indeed was the son of God NOT God the Son for if He was God the Son He be 100% but as the Son of God He was 99.9% pure and as so was tried in all ways as we are and yes He overcame!

A man lost it and it took a man to win it back. God lost nothing so God had to redeem us back by putting His Life in flesh and offer it as a payment for sin and death.

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. Act 20:28

Pure gold is indeed the Word ----->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
The words of the LORD are pure words: .....Psa 12:6

See pure Gold symbolizes God's word which is 100%.

When one looked at pure gold one would see the reflection of 2 main colors, gold and yellow.

When one looks at the word of God one sees the reflection of one in another’s glory.

We need to be refined by the Word; However the Word is pure and needs not to be refined but it will refine us into His image.
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2Co 3:18

The lampstand was placed in the tabernacle to give light in the Holy Place.

The Priests needed the lamp stand to see for there was no other light source in the Holy Place. The lampstand shone upon the table of shewbread and union the altar of incense.

Just as we need the light of Him to understand His Word and how He has made us kings and priests unto Him.

There is much more that can be said about this pure gold lampstand that I can tell you but I know over time the Word will be reveal to hungry hearts the Christ within.
