The concept of asking an "external Jesus" to "come into the heart" is found nowhere in Scripture; and is completely anti-Christ, against the very Mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, which is none other than: Christ in you, the hope of glory.  Just because something, or Someone, may be hidden in plain sight does not mean that they are not there, or not present; it simply implies that we cannot perceive them, and that (of necessity) there must be a discovery that transpires, or an awakening which must occur.  They say, "But what about the Scripture that says, '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 (KJV)]?"


After all of these years, and still one of my greatest heart-cries is for christians 
to learn how to read... in context.  Revelation 3: 20 is not an evangelistic Scripture-requirement for the world to "get saved"; but a chastisement unto the very church of Laodicea, and unto the harlot christians therein who have shut Jesus out of their hearts and chose rather to set their focus upon money, materials possessions and self-sufficiency (you know, sort of like today... and hence, their/our separation and independence from one another... except, of course, when we need or want something from one another).


Romans 10: 8
 suggests a completely different Christ than the one which main-stream, main-line denominational "church-ianity" portrays unto the world: an Indwelling Christ, whose true word already abides within our mouths and hearts.  But where is that Gospel, which reveals that Great Mystery and Indwelling Christ, being preached and heard?  In places few and far between, which have little next to no support; because we keep running back to the "church" building, and to the stained glass windows, and to the steeples, and to the towers (pulpits) of Babel, and to hireling pastors, and to all of those "kiddie-cute programs" which will eventually brainwash our children into future years of counseling in order to be delivered from all of the religious crap that has been programmed into them... all, of course, "in the name of Jesus".  By default, we are "voting" with our money, our time, our energy, and our focus.  So, let's stop complaining about what we are asking for, and all that we are/keep getting.



Romans 10: 5-8 (KJV)

For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wiseSay not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;


Colossians 1: 25-29 (KJV)

25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;
26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.


Revelation 3: 14-22 (KJV)
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 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.
21 To him that overcometh 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.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

"But what saith it?" or, "But what does it say?"  What does what say?  The righteousness which is of faith... what does it say?  Oftentimes, Roman 10: 8-10 is classified by christians as "The Sinner's Prayer"; yet nowhere in Romans 10 is there any allusion to this being a "prayer," but rather a contrast between two very different kinds of righteousness and how each operates.  The righteousness which Moses describes is a righteousness based upon "doing things" ("Who shall ascend into heaven?" and, "who shall descend into the deep?"); and accordingly, will always give us something to do.  The righteousness which is of faith... the Indwelling Christ and/or the Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love of our Heavenly Father which is ever-communicating unto us within our hearts... is not giving us something to do, but something to say... something to express... in some way.  "But what saith it?"  It takes a unique person to be able to identify what "the righteousness which is of faith" is actually "saying" in their heart.  This is where "christian" books, literature, CDs, tapes, DVDs, movies, etc., etc. will lose... and must lose... their influence over us.  This is the place which Apostle Paul describes as, "For through Jesus Christ, we both... Jew and Gentle, there is absolutely no difference whatsoever... have access by one Spirit unto the Father. [Ephesians 2: 18 (Sielski Translation)]"


Romans 10: 6-10 (KJV)
But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus (*the ONLY OTHER OPTION is "to confess Moses" or, "confess the righteousness which Moses describes"; see vv. 6, 7 above!)and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth (*not "obeys" or "performs") unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.


2 Corinthians 3: 18; 4: 13-18 (KJV)
 
18 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.
13 
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Independence is both a deception and a lie of the anti-Christ spirit.  Take away all trash trucks, the drivers and collectors, and what do we have?  Remove all hospitals and doctors, and what do we have?  Remove all grocery store chains and their truck deliveries, and what do we have?  Remove any one country from the current world economy, and what will the stock market do?  What about the natural creation?  Evacuate all oxygen, and what will happen?  Delete water from the earth, and then what?  Eliminate all green plant life and vegetation, including all manner of trees, and what then?  Take away all cattle and livestock which we flippantly kill and  butcher to fill our fat stomachs, and what do we have left?  A raging ego that deifies "self".  By very definition, "independence" means "self-government, self-rule, separation, self-determination, self-sufficiency, self-reliance...(various sources)"  In The Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ... in the days of the voice of the Seventh Angel, when he shall begin to sound... the attitude of both the harlot christian and harlot church will be, "I AM rich.  I AM increased with goods.  I AM in need of nothing (including you!), because 'I' have 'God'."  "I AM"... that sounds like self-deification?  Apostle Jude wrote that in the last days there would be those who would turn the Grace of God into lasciviousness (extremely greedy self-pleasuring), and separate themselves one from another all "in the Name of Grace".  In other words, they would focus on worshiping the false notion of "independence" from one another; but we are to be clear: such have not the Spirit.  Where is the Perfect Love of the Father in any of that mess?  Spiritually speaking, take away the present-day apostles and prophets, and what genuine insight into the mysteries of God do we actually have?  Sever the Body from the Head, or the Head from the Body, and then what? Sever each individual member from one another... all "in the Name of Grace"... and what we have, is... well... what we got.


Ephesians 3: 1-5; 4: 11-20 (KJV)
1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,
If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:
How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, 
as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
11 
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 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:
14 
That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15 
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16 
From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
19 
Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
20 But ye have not so learned Christ;


Jude 1: 3-4, 17-19 (KJV)
 
3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, 
ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18 
How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19 
These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

Next up... "Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) [Romans 10: 7 (KJV)]"  Whereas the previously discussed, self-righteous heart-attitude of, "Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) [Romans 10: 6 (KJV)]" focuses upon the "obedient" and perfect application of "Biblical" steps, formulas, patterns, equations, etc., etc., all to reach some "ascended level" of spirituality by which it can merit God's blessings, and "bring Christ down from above" or "cause the anointing to fall upon us"; this, its sibling self-righteous heart-attitude of, "who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead)" focuses upon "working up" some kind of supernatural manifestation, generating some sort of "heavenly encounter" with Christ, through the effort and strain of human will-power.  Pray longer.  Pray louder.  Pray harder.  Fast more often.  Fast for longer periods, when you do fast.  When you fast, not only abstain from food but also cut out drinking any water or fluids as well.  Read more pages out of your Bible, everyday.  Praise and worship for four hours per day, instead of "only one hour".  When you praise and worship, turn the volume up to "11".  Have audio-recordings of the Bible, and Bible promises, blasting throughout each and every room of your home, all day long.  These things may all sound good, on some level; but nevertheless, it is the self-righteous heart-attitude of, "Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) [Romans 10: 7 (KJV)]"...



Romans 10: 4-7 (KJV)

4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness 
to every one that believeth.
5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the lawThat the man which 
doeth those things shall live by them.
6 But the righteousness which is of faith 
speaketh on this wiseSay not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)



Colossians 2: 20-23 (KJV)

20 Wherefore 
if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
23 
Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

Now, for a long season, the Harlot Church (in general) has had no understanding (revelation) of the Indwelling Christ; yet, "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? [2 Corinthians 13: 5 (KJV)],"  and again, "...seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. [Colossians 3: 9b-11 (KJV)]"  The anti-Christ spirit of mind, or attitude of heart, is always looking for some "magic wand" to wave; continually magnifying steps, equations, formulas, patterns, procedures, protocols, outlines, sequences, sequences of steps, applications, behavior modifications, processes, "healing" processes, works in progress, etc., etc... all to reach some "ascended level" of spirituality by which it can "bring Christ down from above" or "cause the anointing to fall upon us".  But all of these things are forms of control, manipulation and witchcraft; manifested by the spirit of fear.  It is all, nothing more, than the Law of Moses repackaged and relabeled; once again, requiring perfect "obedience" and/or "performance" on our part.  But the longer we remain focused on such things; the further we will continue to sabotage a simple inner-awareness of both the Divine Presence of Christ within, and the True & Living Word of God which He (Himself) is causing to abide within (or inhabit) our mouths and hearts...



Romans 10: 5-8 (KJV)
5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
6 But the righteousness which is of faith (*the Indwelling Christ) speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
But what saith it (*the righteousness which is of faith, or the Indwelling Christ; see v. 6, above)? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;


Matthew 10: 19-21 (KJV)

19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.


Exodus 20: 25, 26 (KJV)

25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.
26 Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon.


Philippians 3: 17-19 (KJV)
17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:
19 (1)Whose end is destruction, (2)whose God is their belly, and (3)whose glory is in their shame, (4)who mind earthly things.)

There are two things (heart-attitudes) which the righteousness of faith... the anointing of our Father's love... will never say in the hearttwo views (heart-attitudes) which the righteousness of faith... the anointing of our Father's love... will never express through the human heart, and both of those heart-attitudes proceed intrinsically from the righteousness which Moses describes, or from the spirit of the Slave in the heart (the Beast or anti-Christ spirit who perceives our Father as a Great Fiery Pharaoh in heaven).  First up, "Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above)"...  Ever hear Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven"?  In the Summer of '94, the Lord spoke to my heart, "John, this 'who shall ascend into heaven?'... these are 'steps' that men glorify.  In the days to come, you shall hear many false prophets, so-called preachers and teachers talking about 'processes'; a 'spiritual evolution' of sorts will be emphasized and exalted above the Cross, in order to 'encourage people' to become 'the best possible version of themselves'.  But I have made you in My image, after My likeness.  What does becoming 'the best possible version of yourself' have to do with being My likeness, the express image of My Person?"  The anti-Christ spirit of mind, or attitude of heart, is always looking for some "magic wand" to wave; continually magnifying steps, equations, formulas, patterns, procedures, protocols, outlines, sequences, sequences of steps, applications, behavior modifications, processes, "healing" processes, works in progress, etc., etc... all to reach some "ascended level" of spirituality by which it can "bring Christ down from above" or "cause the anointing to fall upon us".  But all of these things are forms of control, manipulation and witchcraft; manifested by the spirit of fear.  It is all, nothing more, than the Law of Moses repackaged and relabeled; once again, requiring perfect "obedience" and/or "performance" on our part.



Romans 10: 5-7 (KJV)
5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.

There is the righteousness which Moses describes; and then, there is the righteousness which is of faith.  This is the theme of Romans 10 (*not, "what to say, or pray, in order to 'get saved' from hell and into 'heaven'"...)the two very different kinds of righteousness; both, being in conjunction with two very different laws, and both generating two very different kinds of "spirits of mind" or "attitudes of heart" within people.  The righteousness which Moses describes is a righteousness which is based on "doing things," "obedience" and/or "performance"; which, said righteousness, is the righteousness of the Servant or Slave.  The righteousness which is of faith is the anointing of the Father's love in our hearts; it is the very spirit of our Father freely and lavishly "speaking" in us (this is the True & Living Word of God), and/or "communicating" all that the Father is and has.  This is the righteousness of the Son.  There are two things which the righteousness of faith will never say in the heart; two views which the righteousness of faith will never express through the human heart, and both of those views proceed intrinsically from the righteousness which Moses describes, or from the spirit of the Slave (who perceives our Father as a Great Fiery Pharaoh in heaven).  First up"Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above)"...


Romans 10: 5-7 (KJV)

5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)


2 Corinthians 4: 13-14, 18 (KJV)
  

13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

The righteousness which is of the Law, or the right-standing with God which Moses describes, emphasizes "doing things" or "obedience".  Any and all who are presently living under the spirit of that Law; which is the spirit of the Servant or Slave... the spirit of bondage to fear... will say, "The number one thing that God demands and expects... the number one thing that God is after... is obedience!"  Then why doesn't the Father praise the Older Prodigal Son, and scold the Younger Prodigal Son in The Parable of the Two Prodigal Sons?  If all that God wants is our obedience, then why did Jesus go to the Cross... for what purpose?  Something else that is extremely difficult for most modern-day christians to grasp (and this again, predominantly because of the Harlot Church's mass-marketed, false doctrines); is that, "doing what the Bible says"... or, "living by the Dead Letter of Scripture"... or, "living by the word"... is not "faith," neither is it "living by faith".  Apostle Paul puts it this way: "But the Law (*obedience to the Dead Letter of Scripture) does not rest on faith [does not require faith, has nothing to do with faith], for it itself says, He who does them [the things prescribed by the Law (*the Dead Letter of Scripture)] shall live by them [not by faith]. [Galatians 3: 12 (AMPC)]"  Well, if living by obedience to the Dead Letter of Scripture is not living by faith, then what... exactly... is it?  Indebtedness (slavery) and pressure, motivated by the torment of fear... fear of what might happen if we don't "obey," or "live by the word" or "live by the Dead Letter of Scripture".  But what does living under the torment of fear, and by obligation to fulfill the Dead Letter of Scripture, have anything to do with "faith which is energized by divine love"?



Romans 10: 5-8 (KJV)

5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which 
doeth those things shall live by them.
But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;


Romans 8: 11-15 (KJV)

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead 
dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
12 Therefore, brethren, 
we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: 
but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.


Galatians 4: 4-7 (KJV)

4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, 
made under the law,
To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

Moses describes the righteousness which is of the Law as a righteousness which is based on "doing things"; because Moses was a servant, but Christ is the Son: "For this man [*Jesus Christ] was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house. For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God. And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after; but Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we... [Hebrews 3: 3-6a (KJV)]"  Since when is a servant equal to... or greater than... the Son; and even more, how much different and greater is the righteousness of the Son (in the Father's eyes), in comparison to the righteousness of a servant?  The righteousness which Moses describes is the righteousness of the Servant or Slave.  The spirit of the Slave is the spirit of bondage to fear; and it is obsessed with performance and/or obedience (doing things), in order to make and keep happy the Pharaoh it perceives in heaven.  And, in so "doing those things," the "doer" (Servant or Slave) thinks... believes... that they insure for themselves not only "right standing with God"; but also, life, blessings, favor, etc., etc.  This is the anti-Christ spirit.    

 

Romans 10: 5-7 (KJV)
For Moses 
describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)


2 Corinthians 3: 4-11 (KJV)

4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;
Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; 
which glory was to be done away:
How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
For if 
the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, 
by reason of the glory that excelleth.
11 
For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.

To those who believe... in other words, to everyone who has seen and comprehends the Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love of our Heavenly Father, as it is revealed through the preaching of the true Gospel of the Cross of Christ... to those who believe; unto them, the righteousness which Moses describes, the righteousness which is of the Law (or based upon the "doing" of all the performance requirements and/or obedience standards of the Dead Letter of Scripture) is now become both obsolete and completely irrelevant.  And again, this is, to those who "believe".  Isn't this exactly what the Older Prodigal Son discovers (and that provokes him to such anger) in The Parable of the Two Prodigal Sons; once his Younger Prodigal Brother returns home to the Father (meaning that, the Elder's own righteousness which he has worked so hard to establish for himself is now become both obsolete and completely irrelevant): "...All these years I've slaved for you and never once refused to do a single thing you told me to. And in all that time you never gave me even one young goat for a feast with my friends...[Luke 15: 29 (NLT)]"?  Sounds like the current prophetic movement, doesn't it?


"All these years I've slaved for you..." 
 Now isn't that what every good and loving father longs to hear from his sons and daughters?  I think not!  It is, however, what a Pharaoh would demand and expect.  And see, this is why there is a Beast within the Older Prodigal.  He is a son... the Father calls him such; but he is ever hanging out with the sweaty, stinky servants in the field and becomes a partaker of their spirit... the spirit of bondage to fear, which perceives the Father as a Pharaoh.  The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ signifies this "spirit" as "the Beast".  Hence, there is a blindness within the Older Prodigal Son, regarding and toward his own Father; the same blindness that is in most christians today, who continue to scorn and blaspheme the Finished Work of the Cross of Christ.  Yet they have, personally, never seen (by revelation of the Spirit)... never witnessed (by revelation of the Spirit)... their own death in Jesus Christ's physical body on the Cross of Calvary.  And in keeping perfect harmony with The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the Dragon (Pharaoh) as well as the Beast are depicted in both Revelation 12 and Revelation 13 as each having no eyes.  The Finished Work of the Cross of Jesus Christ is a Finished Work.  Just because most individuals have no revelation of it, doesn't make it any less a Finished Work.  It just means that we have our work cut out for us... that we have no small task ahead of us... in finally bringing to light the Pure Message of the Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ.              



Romans 10: 4-5 (KV)
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which 
doeth those things shall live by them.


Revelation 5: 5, 6 (KJV)

5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood 
a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.


2 Corinthians 4: 3, 4 (KJV)

3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.


Revelation 12: 3, 4 (KJV)

3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold 
a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.


Revelation 13: 1-3 (KJV)

1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw 
a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.


Hebrews 10: 28-30 (KJV)

28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
29 Of how much sorer punishment, 
suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
30 For 
we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.


Revelation 17: 8 (KJV)

The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

"To every one that believeth..." are those who have comprehended (by and through revelation of the Gospel of the Cross of Christ) the Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love of our Heavenly Father; are those who have submitted themselves unto this Righteousness (this Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love of our Heavenly Father), are those who are now resting in this Divine Presence within.  "Believing," or "faith," is the effortless fruit or by-product that is the result of our spirit's perception of the revelation of this Divine Love contained within the Gospel.  This "believing," or "faith," is not proceeding from... or, in and of... ourselves; it is not generated by our effort or will-power.  It is a supernatural response within the human heart, and through the eyes of our understanding, unto the Image of Divine Love Himself: "...the light of the knowledge of the glory of God [*the love of our Heavenly Father] in the face of Jesus Christ. [2 Corinthians 4: 6b (KJV)]"  "Believing," or "faith," is the "obedience" that the Gospel requires; and ironically, "believing" or "faith" is the very substance which the Gospel supernaturally supplies.  This "supernatural supply" is "an act of Grace"... but yet, through the preaching of the Cross of Christ.  The Harlot Church continues to threaten the World with Hell, "You either believe in Jesus... or else!"  But there is no Pure Grace (without Mixture) contained within that ultimatum; so then, how can it impart faith unfeigned?  We need to remember that Grace is the Divine Influence upon the human heart!  All "corrupt communication" (communication containing "Mixture" and/or "Confusion") begins with, "God loves you unconditionally...," and continues with, "but you must... or else."  Wait a minute... I thought that it was "unconditional"??    


Romans 10: 3-5 (KJV)

3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.


Romans 16: 24-26 (KJV)

24 
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,
26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, 
made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:


Ephesians 4: 29, 30 (KJV)

29 Let no corrupt communication [*Mixture (Combination) and/or Confusion of Law AND (or, "+") Grace] proceed out of your mouth, 
but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
30 
And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.


Revelation 14: 9-11 (KJV)

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of 
the wine of the wrath of God [*PURE GRACE], which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

"Believing": product of revelation, seeing; not work of will-power...



Romans 10: 3-5 (KJV)

3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, 
have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness 
to every one that believeth.
5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.


Romans 1: 16, 17 (KJV)

16 For I am not ashamed of 
the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17 
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.


Genesis 15: 4-6 (KJV)

4 And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him [*Abram], saying, This [*Ishmael] shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.
5 And he [*the Lord] brought him [*Abram] forth abroad [*outside of his tent-dwelling], and said, 
Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

"...to every one that believeth..."  Yet, "believing" is not something that we can conjure up, in and of ourselves; neither is it based upon our will-power, or "will to believe" [*will-worship is WITCHCRAFT], like some denominations insinuate who emphasize unto the World, "You need to make a decision for Christ!"  Why?  Is He incapable of making a decision for Himself, or on His own?  Is He suffering from brain damage or is He on life-support?  Then they will argue, "But you must accept Christ into your heart!"  Again, the emphasis is off-center.  The Gospel is not about our accepting Him; the Gospel is about His Unconditional and All-Inclusive Acceptance of us: "Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. [Ephesians 1: 5, 6 (KJV)]"  It is deeply disturbing how most christians have never even read their New Testaments; because if we had, then we would have noticed, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast. [Ephesians 2: 8, 9 (KJV)]"  There is such a thing as a "faith" which is of Man's effort or of Man's works, which is of his own will-power and twisted desire to attempt to use God and His Word to control things, events, life and even people.  What's even worse is how the Harlot Church has threatened people with the idea of, "You either believe in Jesus, or God is going to send you to Hell!"  Once we take faith, or believing, out of the Realm of Grace; we automatically subjugate it to Man's arm of the flesh, and ironically there will always be pride associated with it.  So, it is no more God's Redemptive Reality that Jesus Christ has already... legally... single-handedly saved us all, all on His own; no, it now becomes, "Here's what I did, and what you must do... in order to 'get saved.'"  And we will boast about it!... just like Ephesians 2: 9 describes.



Romans 10: 3-5 (KJV)

3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, 
have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness 
to every one that believeth.
5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.


Colossians 2: 20-23 (KJV)

20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;

22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

Once we comprehend the Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love of our Heavenly Father in the preaching of the Cross of Christ; then our striving to please, and keep happy with us, a God who already loves us this Way... who already loves us this much... will cease.  We will transition from "having no rest, day nor night"; and into His Glorious Rest... (that His Love awakens)... within us.  Hence, Christ Himself is the End [*Greek ~ the completion, execution, conclusion, the discharging of the debt, the termination] of the Law of Moses... the End of the righteousness which Moses describes in the Law... to everyone that believes.  ALL of the types, shadows and/or symbolisms found within the Law of Moses... they ALL point unto Christ and to His Finished Work on the Cross.  ALL of the commandments, judgments, statutes and ordinances found within the Law of Moses... ALL of those proverbs and parables point unto, and contain the Hidden Message, the Hidden Wisdom of the Finished Work of the Cross of Jesus Christ.  Even "The Two Greatest Commandments" were never written or meant for us to fulfill; but pointed unto, and revealed the Love that would hang on the Cross of Calvary, the revelation of which would free all men from the spirit of the slave or servant... would free all men from the spirit of bondage to fear... and release within us the spirit of power, the spirit of love and the spirit of a sound mind.    



Romans 10: 3-5 (KJV)

3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.


Revelation 14: 11 (KJV)

11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.


Isaiah 11: 9, 10 (KJV)
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

There are a myriad of ways through which christians think that they attain and maintain "righteousness," or "right-standing with God," or "God-likeness".  Here are just a few examples:  1. praying "the sinner's prayer" (which is mentioned nowhere throughout the Scriptures); 2. confessing all of our sins (Jesus already absorbed all of our sin and put it to death in the physical body of His own flesh on the Cross); 3. being sorry for our sins (if you are alive and reading this e-mail, you were forgiven before you ever "committed your first sin" and definitely before you were ever sorry for it!); 4. water baptism (ironically, Jesus personally water-baptized no one and Paul stopped water-dunking people once he caught wind of the strife it was causing, as well as the different factions or denominations it was raising up within the churches); 5. getting water-baptized "in the Name of Jesus only" (again, refer to #4); 6. getting water-baptized "in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" (again, refer to #4); 7. worshipping, or going to a "church building" on Saturday, instead of Sunday; 8. worship-ping, or going to a "church building" on Sunday, instead of Saturday; 9. tithing; 10. not tithing; 11. "going to church"; 12. not ever "going to church"; 13. prayer; 14. Scripture-/faith-confessions; 15. fasting; 16. eating/not eating certain foods; 17. being a Republican; 18. being a Democrat...  If we are convinced that any, or a combination of any, of these things causes us to attain and maintain "righteousness," or "right-standing with God," or "God-likeness"; then we are not only ignorant of God's righteousness (we lack the revelation of our Heavenly Father's Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love, as seen in the Cross of Jesus Christ) but also (and this, by default)... ever going about... attempting to establish our own twisted brand of righteousness.  We are actually, in the truest sense of the word, unbelievers; because we do not understand the Mystery of our Glorious Inclusion in the Cross of Jesus Christ.

 
 

Romans 10: 1-4 (KJV)
1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.


Colossians 1: 18-22 (KJV)

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19 
For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
20 
And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
21 
And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
22 
In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:


Colossians 2: 9-13 (KJV)

9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead 
bodily.
10 
And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11 
In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12 
Buried with him in baptism [*literally, "in union"], wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
13 
And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

The "keeping" of the New Covenant has absolutely nothing to do with us.  The New Covenant is a covenant that the Father made... that the Father "cut"... with the Son, while simultaneously including all of humanity in it; therefore, God is keeping both sides of the New Covenant... both, the "God-side" AND the "Man-side"... in the physical body of Jesus Christ.  All that we had the audacity to do was simply fall asleep and die together in the sacrificial body of Jesus' own flesh on the Cross.  The nerve!!  So, you see... once we boil it all down, it (really) simply does revolve around whose righteousness we are trusting... in whose righteousness we are resting: "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire... [Revelation 19: 11, 12a (KJV)]"  Natural Israel, much like the church of today, had the written word of God; but they (like most of us) could not discern the Gospel within the Scriptures, much less the righteousness of God (the love of our Heavenly Father) revealed in the Gospel.  When we are ignorant of God's righteousness (our Heavenly Father's Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love); by default, we will go about, ignorantly attempting to establish our own righteousness out of fear, because we perceive God as a Pharaoh (who rewards good and punishes evil, and...) who should not be displeased.  Stay tuned for a few examples of the myriad of ways through which christians think that they attain and maintain "right-standing with God" and/or "God-likeness"...

a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, 
behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.
18 
In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land...


Galatians 3: 16 (KJV)

16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, 
And to thy seed, which is Christ.

When we lack the revelation of "God's righteousness"... when we lack the revelation of the Father's Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love... through the Finished Work of the Cross of Jesus Christ; then by default, we will ignorantly go about, attempting to establish our own righteousness... our own brand of "rightness with God" or "God-likeness"... hence creating an Outward Image to (an Outward Show of...) the Inward Beast (or self-righteous spirit within).  Ironically, what we have an extremely strong tendency to utilize, in order to establish our own brand of righteousness is some form of outward performance or obedience to our own, twisted interpretation of the dead letter of Scripture; or, what we think our heavenly pharaoh wants/demands from us.  Most christians worship the Bible.  Most christians worship the Scriptures.  Most christians worship their own understanding of what they think the Bible says and means; based upon the religious teachings, traditions and brainwashings handed down by mere, mortal men.  But there is a huge difference between Bible-worship and/or Scripture-worship; versus intimately knowing the Christ within, of whom the Scriptures testify... and even yet, the Father whom Christ reveals.  Is it possible to know the Scriptures, but not know the Father?  Absolutely!  Is it possible to know the Scriptures, but not know Jesus?  Absolutely!  Apostle Paul pens, regarding the natural Jew of his day, "For I bear them [*natural Israel, or the natural Jews] record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.  For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness..."  But they had "the oracles of God," the writings of the Old Testament; or The Law (Moses) & The Prophets (Elijah)?...  How can you have The Law & The Prophets, and not have a revelation of God's righteousness?  Well, how can you have The Holy Scriptures (and this, TODAY, both the writings of the Old and New Testaments!!)and still not have a revelation of the Father's Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love?  It's quite easy.  You/We may very well have the Scriptures, but we may have never heard The Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ!  The Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ is the Hidden Message... the Hidden Mystery... contained within the Holy Scriptures: "Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, (which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,) concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord... [Romans 1: 1-3a (KJV)]"  



Romans 10: 1-4 (KJV)

1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.


Romans 3: 1, 2 (KJV)

1 What advantage then hath the [*natural] Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?
2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.


John 5: 38-47 (NKJV)

38 But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe.
39 You search the Scriptures, for in [*your perceived obedience unto] them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.
40 But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.
41 I do not receive honor from men.
42 But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you.
43 I have come in My Father's name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name [*the Name of Blasphemy], him you will receive.
44 How can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek the honor that comes from the only God?
45 Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you-Moses, in whom you trust.
46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me.
47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?

"For I bear them [*natural Israel, the natural Jew] record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.  For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness..."  What is this "righteousness of God"?  The righteousness of God is a revelation that should "come to us" if/when the true Gospel of Christ is being preached: "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  For therein [*IN the Gospel of Christ] is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith..."  In 1 Corinthians, Apostle Paul defines "the gospel of Christ" as "the preaching of the cross": "...For Christ sent me not to [*water-] baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.  For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God..."  So what, specifically, is this "righteousness of God"... that should be revealed through the preaching of the Cross of Christ?  Why it is the very, unconditional, all-inclusive love of our Heavenly Father.  Yes, "the righteousness of God" is, simply, the unconditional, all-inclusive love of our Heavenly Father...      

 

Romans 10: 1-4 (KJV)
1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.


John 17: 23-26 (KJV)

23 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.
24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.


1 John 4: 9, 10 (KJV)

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

Hi Everyone,

Below is the link to our new YouTube video, "An Exposition of Romans 10":


In this video, we begin to take a look at the theme of the tenth chapter of The Book of Romans, discussing two very different kinds of righteousness.  What is the righteousness of God?  What are any and all other forms of righteousness?  Let's let our true liberty in Christ, as the Sons of God, begin to flow!...  Love and blessings, ~J&K

In the third chapter of his letter to the Romans, Apostle Paul pens, "What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?  Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.  For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? [Romans 3: 1-3 (KJV)]"  In every way, natural Israel... or, the natural Jew... had the advantage over the Gentile; because God committed unto them His holy oracles, the writings of the Old Testament or The Law (Moses) & The Prophets (Elijah).  However, because of the natural or carnal mind (the mind of the Servant or Slave) within them; natural Israel, or the natural Jew, could not discern the Revelation of God's Son, Jesus Christ, or His Finished Work that He Himself would accomplish on the Cross.  Notice how Apostle Paul questions, "For what if some did not believe?..."  The Revelation of Jesus Christ contained within The Law & The Prophets generates, in and of itself, something called "believing"; and this, within the human heart.  In the Spirit, "believing" is "seeing"; or spiritual perception, discernment or judgment.  Jesus declares this same thing unto the natural Jews: "Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.  For had ye believed [*NOT, "OBEYED" OR "PERFORMED"] Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.  But if ye believe not [*NOT, "OBEY NOT" OR "PERFORM NOT"] his writings, how shall ye believe my words? [John 5: 45-47 (KJV)]"  So, is it completely possible to have the whole Bible memorized, along with all of its alleged (and presumed) "success" formulas, processes, patterns, outlines, equations, steps, sequences, sequences of steps, works in progress... is it completely possible to be able to quote the scriptures like a machine gun at every thing and everyone that lives and/or breathes... and yet, still NOT have the True Word of God abiding within us??  Yes, it is both completely possible and a present reality!!



Romans 10: 1-4 (KJV)

1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
For I bear them record 
that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.


John 5: 45-47 (KJV)

45 
Do not think that I will accuse you to the Fatherthere is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.

47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

Hebrews 11: 26, 27 (KJV)
26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he [*Moses, before the Law was given] had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

27 By faith he [*Moses, before the Law was given] forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

So, what was stirring up natural Israel's zeal of God; motivating them to go about, attempting to establish their own righteousness while simultaneously keeping them blind to the full discernment (or revelation) of God's righteousness?  And what, specifically, is "God's righteousness"? Ironically, the very thing which was stirring up natural Israel's zeal of God; motivating them to go about, attempting to establish their own righteousness... is the very thing that is still doing the same within most christians, today: a corrupt view and deceitful handling of the dead letter of scripture, which is rooted and grounded in a perverted perception of our Heavenly Father.  In the third chapter of the same letter to the Romans, Apostle Paul pens, "What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?  Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.  For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? [Romans 3: 1-3 (KJV)]"  The Oracles of God are the writings of the Od Testament, or the Law (Moses) & the Prophets (Elijah).  The Law & the Prophets, or the Oracles of God, contained the revelation of a Person; the Oracles of God are not meant to be a "Honey-Do List"!  However, if we perceive our Heavenly Father as a Great Red Dragon (Pharaoh) in heaven; then out of fear of being pleasing and/or not pleasing unto "God", we will twist or manipulate the scriptures and personalize them... shifting all of the emphasis and pressure of performance and/or obedience onto ourselves, while all the while remaining blind to a Revelation of Christ that is staring us right in our own face...            
 


Romans 10: 1-4 (KJV)

1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
For I bear them record 
that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.


2 Corinthians 2: 17 (KJV)

17 
For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.


2 Corinthians 3: 18 - 4: 4 (KJV)

18 But we all, 
with open face beholding as in a glass (mirror) the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Zeal is not an indicator of Truth; neither is sincerity.  We can be extremely zealous of "God," and of "the things of God"; sincere and well-meaning, but ignorant nevertheless.  Have we ever met the person who has been sincerely wrong?  Sure we have; and sometimes, it has been us:-)  "These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.  They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.  And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. [John 16: 1-3 (KJV)]"  Apostle Paul also notes that natural Israel's zeal of God is not according to knowledge.  The Greek word used for "knowledge" is "epignosis," meaning, "recognition, full discernment, acknowledgement".  They lack a full discernment... and therefore, there is an ignorance within them... regarding God's righteousness.  Unfortunately, and by default (of course), when anyone... including, we... are ignorant of God's righteousness; they will... we will... unknowingly go about, attempting to establish their/our own righteousness, or their/our own brand of righteousness.  There is no "middle ground" or "grey area" with this issue.  Today, even two-thousand years after Jesus' death and resurrection, most christians still believe that God's righteousness is some kind of performance requirement and/or obedience standard we must attain and maintain, in order to make and keep God happy with us.  And this means that we, too, have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.  We are ignorant of God's true righteousness...        



Romans 10: 1-4 (KJV)

1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
For I bear them record 
that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

In our weekly, public meetings... over the course of the past 4-6 weeks... we have been taking a break from our study in The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ in order to look into a very misunderstood topic that has been coming up quite frequently in conversation, as of late: the righteousness of God.  It seems that most of these conversations regarding this subject somehow, or another, always lead back to the tenth chapter of The Book of Romans. So, let's begin this series there...  Apostle Paul starts by saying, "Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel [the natural Jew] is, that they might be saved. [Romans 10: 1 (KJV)]"  What a long, drawn-out prayer!  In fact, does anyone find it ironic that this prayer has a total of five "5" simple words: "...(1)that (2)they (3)might (4)be (5)saved."  "5" is the Biblical number signifying "Grace".  So, we know that Grace is going to be involved. "Saved" is the feminine, Greek word "soteria," meaning, "delivered, rescued, secured, made safe (safety), healed (health)".  But the question that remains is, "'Saved' from what?"  "Well, from Hell, Brother," would be the traditional response; but nowhere within the context of  Romans, Chapter Ten... or in any of Paul's writings... is the word "hell" mentioned.
 


Romans 10: 1-4 (KJV)

Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, 
that they might be saved.
2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

~03/09/2019: "Process-Christianity"

God is not "in the process," nor, "found in the process" (whatever the heck that means!); God is IN YOU, and He wants to come out and play.  Therefore the cure for what truly ails us is not "found in a process"; but rather, within a Person... and specifically, the revelation of that Person and His Finished Work.  Anti-christ's latest version of "christianity" is called "Process-Christianity".  It is a "christianity" that urges us to "come down from the Cross" (or, to move away from our simple identification with Christ, in the servant-body of His own flesh and through His death on the Cross) and to engage in some vague and vain process whereby we can "heal ourselves" and/or "achieve something great".  But this is still spelled, "c-o-n-t-r-o-l"; and it is continually dominated by the torment of the spirit of fear (anti-christ).  This means that we are "back in the driver's seat"; once again, in some "semblance of control" over our lives and the lives of others, and about to make a big mess of things... all over again.  Jesus Christ did not come to heal us, or fix us; but to put us all to death... in Himself... in one fell-swoop!  Therefore, our victory... our triumph... OVER OURSELVES & OVER OUR OWN SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS... is in the revelation of His Death; and not in our pathetically vague and vain processes, marketed and merchandised by, both, the World and the Harlot Church and all of their so-called "great men and/or great women of renown"...



Matthew 27: 39-43 (KJV)

39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, 
save [*literally, "heal"] thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
42 
He saved [*literally, "healed"] others; himself he cannot save[*literally, "heal"]. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
43 He trusted in God; 
let him deliver [*literally, "heal"] him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

In general, christians seek "connections" (because they are self-serving, not knowing the love of the Father); not so much relationship... and much less, fellowship... with one another.  But in order to have fellowship with one another, all parties involved must be holding fast unto the One True Head... and not unto our own heads.  "We have to get in with the right people," they say.  Yet, this is the "gospel" that has been presented unto them, and with which they have become so familiar.  It is a "World-View" which caters toward the "achievement" or "accomplishment" of "personal goals" and/or "self-improvement"; full of empty promises, false hopes and dreams, ulterior motives and hidden agendas... revolving around all that the World values and offers through the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.  Have you ever noticed why "christian love" seems to be so fake and hypocritical?  Because it is!  A christian will "love you" because they believe that they are "commanded to do so".  They are so self-absorbed with their individual view of "God" and all that they believe "God" is requiring of them, in order to be pleasing unto "Him" (of course), that they honestly cannot see the value in anyone else... other than themselves, and their "own special calling".  So, they "love" out of obligation to a Heavenly Pharaoh, for fear of what that Pharaoh may do unto them, or allow to have happen in their own lives; and not because they genuinely see the same value in you that Christ Himself saw, and that so moved Him to go to the Cross for us.  Christians know how to show a form of love (with their big mouths; the same "love" they show toward the Father) when they want something from you; in fact, that is usually the only time when you will ever see them come around, and of course when it is convenient for them to do so.  In general, christians seek "connections," but "connections" become sinister; whereas, relationship and fellowship with one another are edifying in "all things godly"...       
 


Revelation 13: 3-4, 7-9 (KJV)
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon [*their own twisted, perverted view of a Heavenly Pharaoh... instead of a Heavenly Father] which gave power unto the beast [*the Ego of their own Self-Righteousness]and they worshipped the beast [*THEY WORSHIP THEMSELVES, like most christians do!!], saying, Who is like unto the beast [*or "Me, Myself, and 'I'"]? who is able to make war with him [*who is as "RIGHT & TIGHT" with 'god'... MY Heavenly Pharaoh... as "I" am?]
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
If any man have an ear, let him hear.


Luke 18: 9-14 (KJV)

9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:
10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
14 I tell you, this man [*the tax-collector] went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.


Galatians 2: 20, 21 (KJV)

20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
21 I do not frustrate the grace of Godfor if righteousness come by [*our keeping] the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

In The Revelation, there are "heaven dwellers"... then, there are those who "dwell upon the earth"... and finally, there are those who "inhabit the earth".  In context, "...all that  dwell upon the earthare Christians who "dwell upon"... who set their affection on... who set their minds on... who value... earthly things
 

Revelation 13: 7-9 (KJV)
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.


Colossians 3: 1-3 (KJV)

1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.


Colossians 3: 1-3 (NKJV)

1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

The Beast, or anti-Christ spirit of mind or attitude of heart, is a self-seeking, self-serving, Self-Interest spirit; intent upon building something, making a name for itself, promoting itself, feeling important.  In regard to the Harlot Church, it is the spiritual influence "...over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."  These three things serve as primary dividers between the members of the Harlot Church.


"Kindreds"
 are "families which share, and call themselves by, a common man's name"; in context, these are the names of famous preachers, "I belong to Paul," and, "I belong to Peter," and, "I belong to Apollos," (or, we could say it this way...) "I belong to Roberts," and, "I belong to Graham," and, "I belong to Hagin," and, "I belong to Copeland," and, "I belong to Meyer," and, "I belong to Osteen," and, "I belong to Prince," etc., etc...


"Tongues"
 represent the "doctrines" which are peddled by these famous preachers, which tell people what they want to hear.  As long as the "tongues" are telling people what they want to hear, the finances will continue to roll in.  The carnal mind views this "appearance of blessing" as God's stamp of approval or validation.  (So, God must be in full support of the Porn Industry?)


"Nations"
 signify "ethnicity, race and their habits or customs".  On a natural level, this is pretty much self-explanatory; however in the spirit, "nations" are actually the denomi-"nations" created by famous preachers and their doctrines.  Have we ever noticed how each of these denomi- "nations" looks unto some man or woman, and their doctrines, to "show them the way"... or, "how to get saved," or, "how to be pleasing unto God," or, "how to receive blessings from God," or, "how to live a blessed life"?  These things would constitute the habits or customs of that particular, spiritual "ethnicity," "race," or, "nation"...           



Revelation 13: 7, 8 (KJV)

7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.


Psalm 74: 1-5 (KJV)

1 O God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture?
2 Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.
3 Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set up their ensigns for signs.
A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees.

Beast (anti-Christ), or Lamb (reveals the Father): the kind of person we are... on the inside.  "Nations": "ethnos," or "ethnicities"; hence, Beast (anti-Christ) magnifies its own ethnicity...
 

Revelation 13: 7, 8 (KJV)
7 And it was given unto him [*the Beast] to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: 
and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.


Revelation 5: 9, 10 (KJV)

And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood 
out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
10 
And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.


Galatians 3: 28 (KJV)

28 
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.


Colossians 3: 8-13 (KJV)

8 But now ye also put off all these; (1)anger, (2)wrath, (3)malice, (4)blasphemy, (5)filthy communication out of your mouth.
9 (6)Lie not one to another, 
seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 
And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
11 
Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
12 
Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of (1)mercies, (2)kindness, (3)humbleness of mind, (4)meekness, (5)longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: 
even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

"Tongues": "doctrines," including "doctrine-worship," spawning a common language or speech... "christian lingo," "christian jargon". 



Revelation 13: 7, 8 (KJV)

7 And it was given unto him [*the Beast] to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.


Genesis 11: 1-4 (KJV)

And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.


Matthew 15: 8, 9 (KJV)

This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.


Mark 7: 6-8 (KJV)

6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

Beast: carnally minded, glorifies/worships men; seeks men's approval, praise/honor from men...


Revelation 13: 7, 8 (KJV)
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds [*"families," share (call themselves by) a common man's name], and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

1 Corinthians 1: 11-13; 3: 1-5 (KJV)
11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?
1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?
Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?


Matthew 16: 12-15 (KJV)
12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?


Revelation 17: 3 (KJV)
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.


John 5: 41-44 (KJV)
41 I receive not honour from men.
42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name [*Name of Blasphemy], him ye will receive.
44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?

"Kindreds": "families," share (call themselves by) a common man's name...; "I follow Billy Graham," or, "I follow Joyce Meyer," or, "I follow Joel Osteen," or, "I follow Joseph Prince."  Yet despite all of this, do any of us... yet, even... know our Heavenly Father??

 

Revelation 13: 7, 8 (KJV)
7 And it was given unto him [*the Beast, self-righteous & anti-Christ "spirit of mind" or "attitude of heart"] to make war with the saints, and to overcome themand power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.


1 Corinthians 1: 9-13a (KJV)

9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions [*divisions and denominations] among you.
12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you?...


Ephesians 3: 14, 15 (KJV)

14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,


Revelation 14: 1 (KJV)

1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.

Fellowship: revelatory, Christ-centered manifestation and joint-participation with one another... not "social club"; Beast scorns fellowship with brethren.
 

Revelation 13: 6, 7 (KJV)

And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme (1)his name, 
and (2)his tabernacle, and (3)them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.


Luke 15: 25-30a (KJV)
25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.
26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
29 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
30 But as soon as this thy son was come...


Ephesians 2: 18-22 (KJV)
18 For through him we both [*Jew and Gentile, there is NO DIFFERENCE] have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.


1 Peter 2: 5a (KJV)
Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood...

Hi Everyone,

Come and join us for a wonderful time of fellowship and fresh revelation in the Presence of the Lord... tomorrow morning, Sunday, February 3rd @ 10AM at 2025 Noble Street, West Lawn, PA 19609.  We are now beginning to study the Sixth... and final... Facet of The Fifth Thunder: the Fifth Vial Angel or Fifth Plague Angel.  It is during this Fifth Thunder where the Spirit of Might confronts the Feet that Be Swift in Running to Mischief, all at the infamous "sticking point" known as the Seat of the Beast.  Specifically, we will be looking further at "the key of the bottomless pit," as well as the "great chain" in the hand of this Fifth Vial (or Plague) Angel; and delving into the understanding of why he has such authority to bind, and shut up the Dragon.  Hope to see you all there!  Audio-CDs are available for a minimum $5 love offering/per copy, to help keep us going.  Love and blessings...  ~J&K  
 

Revelation 20: 1-10 (KJV)

1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, 
having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he (1)laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and (2)bound him a thousand years,
3 And (3)cast him into the bottomless pit, and (4)shut him up, and (5)set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

This is Part 1, of a three-part series...  We have made a "god" out of... an idol out of... our "experiences" and/or "encounters" with God.  And this is why it is so difficult for most of us to continue in our discovery of the ever-unfolding Truth of the Gospel of the Mysterious Cross of Jesus Christ.  So we have "experienced" and/or "encountered" God on some level; but now we demand that He deal with us in the same manner... and we look for Him after the same manner... every time.  Whether it be God speaking unto us through butterflies, or zebras, or sunrises, or sunsets.  It seems like we always want to plant our flag pole upon some little hill, and proclaim, "This is the whole!  This is everything!"  But it isn't.  It's only one thing; and by doing so, we are actually tempting... limiting... the Living God in His dealings with us.


A carnal, or natural, mind continually seeks for "thrills and chills," only intent upon (and content with) attempting to "use Jesus" for its own rest, relaxation, personal enjoyment and recreational purposes; but doesn't realize that what is shown unto us upon Transfiguration Mountain is not only for us, but also for the demon-possessed valley, below.  The Father is offering unto us something far more than an "experience" and/or an "encounter"; He is offering unto us 
Himself... a living, breathing relationship and fellowship with Him.  Multitudes of "experiences" and/or "encounters" will, undoubtedly, flow out of the relationship and fellowship... IF we are engaging in the relationship and fellowship... IFthe relationship and fellowship are being experienced.


There is only one time, recorded in Scripture, where the Lord Jesus knocked Saul of Tarsus on his ass.  This didn't happen every time the Lord wanted to deal with Apostle Paul.  There was only one time when Jesus took Peter, James and John upon Transfiguration Mountain.  This didn't happen every time the Lord wanted to deal with Peter, James and John about something.  We worship "experiences"... we worship "encounters"... but we don't understand what the experiences and/or encounters are for!  They are for 
the ignition of the Glorious Message of the Gospel of the Mysterious Cross of Jesus Christ within us; that we might preach Him, proclaim Him... the Father's Good News unto the whole world!  It is still our Father's good pleasure to "save" people... or, to "deliver them from the corruption of their own self-righteousness"... through the absurd foolishness of preaching.  It's not just... and simply... for our own viewing pleasure and entertainment.

 

Mark 16: 12 (KJV)
12 After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.


Ephesians 2: 18 (KJV)

18 For through him [*Jesus Christ] we both [*Jew & Gentile, there is NO DIFFERENCE!] have access by one Spirit unto the Father.


Galatians 1: 15, 16 (KJV)

15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,
16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:


Isaiah 33: 13, 14 (KJV)

13 Hear, ye that are far off [*Gentiles], what I have done; and, ye that are near [*natural Jews], acknowledge my might.
14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

The pendulum swung, and has now been stuck at the other extreme for quite some time.  When an individual comes out of an extremely religious, legalistic and oppressive environment, there is a strong tendency to want to throw off any and all restraint and go "hog-wild"; similar to a child who gets their first taste of freedom at college, after growing up in a very strict and even abusive household.  The same has occurred within the modern-day Grace movement.  As a result, we have chosen to craft for ourselves a Gospel of Personal Convenience; a "gospel" which threatens, "Tell me what I want to hear, what works best for me... how I can do 'whatever,' save for retirement, and even prepare for my physical death (because 'God' loves me no matter what)... or else, I will write you out of my life."  Thus, the Grace of God has been turned into lasciviousness.  Ironically, when examined further, this presentation of Grace amounts to nothing more than a "teaching" that still revolves around "what we have to do" or "don't have to do"; which verifies we are still under the spirit of bondage to fear.  There is no supernatural manifestation of the love of the Father, or the Grace of Christ... at all.  It's just us... all over again...; but this time, not focusing on "what we have to do," but rather on "what we don't have to do".
 

Revelation 3: 17 (KJV)

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; 
and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:


Galatians 5: 6; 6: 15 (KJV)

6 For in Jesus Christ 
neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
15 For in Christ Jesus 
neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.


Jude 1: 3, 4 (KJV)

3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, 
ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our greatest adversary, or enemy, is not "the Devil," but our perverted perception of our own Heavenly Father.  If we actually knew the Father, then we would pursue one another, love one another... and most importantly, love the ever-unfolding Truth of the Gospel.  It is said of the Beast (antichrist spirit of mind, or antichrist attitude of heart), "...and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority."  The Dragon is the symbol for Pharaoh, "Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself. [Ezekiel 29: 3 (KJV)]"  It is the perception of our Father being a Pharaoh in heaven which causes the spirit of slavery to arise within us.  It is the Dead Letter of Scripture (not the Spirit of the Scripture) which triggers this faulty perception.


The spirit of slavery is the spirit of fear; because the slave lives under the constant torment of fear (having no rest, day or night) of being pleasing... or not pleasing... unto their Pharaoh.  The slave seeks more and more "practical applications" to be pleasing unto their Pharaoh; in order to avoid punishment, and receive rewards (including a paycheck).  This is why it is said of the Beast, 
"And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. [Revelation 13: 6 (KJV)]"  (*Heaven-Dwellers have no practical applications to offer; but a Revelation to share and impart.)  Enter... the marketing and merchandising system of Babylon (the Harlot Church); where, "...thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. [Revelation 18: 23b (KJV)]"  Who are these "great men of the earth," but famous, highly esteemed, mega-preachers... the True Nephilim.  And notice what all of their "practical applications" and "formulas," which they peddle are called: "sorceries".

 

John 8: 38-45 (KJV)
38 I speak that which I have seen [*perceived] with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen [*perceived] with your father.
39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham [*faith-works].
40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.  [*because of their perverted perception of the Father... just like it is TODAY]
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.


Genesis 6: 4, 5 (KJV)
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters [*Denominations] of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.  [*famous, highly esteemed, MEGA-PREACHERS (see Revelation 18: 23, 24 below...)]
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.


Revelation 18: 23, 24 (KJV)

23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
24 And in her [*BABYLON, the Harlot Church] was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.  [*She will be WITHOUT EXCUSE... left without a leg to stand on!]

There is nothing Adam could have eaten, from within the Garden, that would have created within him the illusion of separation from the Garden... the illusion of separation from his Father.  Like most of us today, Adam chose the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil; thinking that the knowledge of Good & Evil... more specifically, the knowledge of Good versus Evil... would "make him like God".  Ironically, he was already made in God's image, after God's likeness.  We snuff our noses at the very thought of this, but have we not chosen rather to worship our own ability to "do Good" and "abstain from Evil"... our own twisted sense of "morality," hence "self-righteousness"... over any possibility of there being something much deeper, and far greater, to experience with our Heavenly Father, namely: living communion, or fellowship, with Him in our spirits, and the manifestation of His tangible Glory in our mortal flesh?  The ancient understanding/meaning of "Death" is "Separation".  The Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil... being "separate" from the Garden... tragically, is rooted and grounded in Death.  That's right.  Our self-righteousness comes up with multitudes of ways to emphasize "Good & Evil" or "Good versus Evil"; while remaining staggeringly oblivious to the sobering reality of "Good & Evil," as well as "Good versus Evil," being nothing more than mere "smokescreens" or "facades" interfering with something much more paramount: "Life and Death," or "Life versus Death"!  Both "Good" and "Evil" are rooted and grounded in Death.  "Good" can be just as deadly as "Evil"; because, although "Good" may be good, "Good" may not be "God".
 

Romans 7: 16-21 (KJV)
  [*Notice the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil, hiding within the scriptures below; along with all of the "doing" and/or "not doing"...  The Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil is the "type," or "shadow," of the Dead Letter of Moses' Law; and "flesh" is simply "human effort" or "works-righteousness"...]
16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the [*Moses'] law that it is good.
17 Now then it is no more I that do itbut sin that dwelleth in me.
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do itbut sin that dwelleth in me  [*again, "that is, in my flesh" or "human effort" or "works-righteousness"].
21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. [*BECAUSE THEY...  BOTH GOOD & EVIL... HANG FROM THE SAME, SEPARATE TREE WHICH IS ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN DEATH: THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD & EVIL!]

Self-righteousness is an angry spirit, hence the Elder secretly blasphemes Father to household servants; until Younger receives, then the Beast within the Elder is exposed, bringing the Elder's kingdom (and reign of terror) to an end.  So, it is today...



Revelation 13: 5-7 (KJV)
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme (1)his name, and (2)his tabernacle, and (3)them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.


Luke 15: 25-28
25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.
26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.

How long was the Younger Prodigal away?  42 months...  Once the Younger Prodigal receives his Father's love through Grace, the Beast within the Older Prodigal becomes exposed.  The Beast within the Older Prodigal blasphemes all three of these: 1. his Father's Name (nature ~ Love); 2. his Father's Tabernacle (dwelling ~ Tent); and, 3. them that dwell in heaven (especially his brother ~ who enjoy their Father's presence and live out of their heavenly identity in Christ).  Most of us haven't realized yet, that this is presently happening... right now.  There are those who are receiving their Father's love through Grace, including their heavenly identity; while their self-righteous brethren stand aloof, with a religious stick up their rear-ends... commiserating their slavery to their past and all of their disappointments regarding all that their performance and obedience hasn't earned or accomplished for them... yet. 



Revelation 13: 5, 6 (KJV)
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme (1)his name, and (2)his tabernacle, and (3)them that dwell in heaven.

Luke 15: 25-30 (KJV)
25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house (*tabernacle or tent), he heard musick and dancing.
26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
29 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme (1)his name, and (2)his tabernacle, and (3)them that dwell in heaven.

Adam shifted the Center, the Focus.  The Serpent asks Eve, "Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?"  What kind of a twisted question is this?  "And the Lord God commanded the man [*before the woman was formed], saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat..."  The Tree of Life is in the midst of that Garden; in fact, it is the only tree in the midst of that Garden.  The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ confirms: "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God."  This is why the Woman's response to the Serpent is so baffling: "And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die..."   Question...  Doesn't the Scripture emphasize, "And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden...?"  More questions...  Who gave Eve the false impression that she couldn't eat of the tree which truly was in the midst of the Garden?  And someone please show me where God ever said, initially, unto Adam... regarding the actual Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil... "Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die...?"  Adam shifted the Center, the Focus.  He should have encouraged his wife to partake of the Tree of Life; the tree which is "in the midst of the Garden".  Instead, he made the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil the Center, the Focus, ignoring the reality... any evidence... of there even being a Tree of Life; and, lying to his wife about where "the midst of the Garden" really was, outside of the Garden...



Genesis 2: 9, 16-17 (KJV)

9 And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; 
the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, 
Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil [*which was separate from the Garden], thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof 
thou shalt surely die [*literal: "in dying, you shall die..."  "Death" means "separation"; therefore, "...in eating something that is separate (full of death), it will cause you to perceive yourself as being separate from (dead to) Me; and to work yourself to death in order to be worthy of My love."]


John 19: 41, 42 (KJV)

41 Now in the place where he was crucified 
there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
42 
There laid they Jesus (*and All of Us, together in Him:-)!...


Romans 5: 12-14 (KJV)

12 Wherefore, as 
by one man [*Adam] sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
13 (For until the law 
sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14 
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him [*Christ] that was to come.

"Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat..."  Of all the gifts from the Lord we can partake, the one gift toward which most of us show little interest is... the gift to read.  Even Jesus taught, "...whoso readeth, let him understand."  Reading or meditation increases our capacity for revelation; opens our hearts (and minds) to give the Spirit a fighting chance to show us all that we have never before considered.  That being said, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil is never mentioned as being in the Garden of Eden.  We are more in love with our dead traditions than we know the Lord, because being drunk on the pride-enflaming wine of men's religions; we have grown cold and content in our complacency and indifference, settling for our self-absorbed pursuit of the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things.


The true treasures, riches, of heaven are reserved for those whose affection is toward... even, 
on... heaven, and who value spiritual things; not for those who covet all that the world has to offer through the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.  So, let's go back to the original statement: "Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat..."  Meaning, that Adam could eat of every tree within the Garden without cost, or without having to pay a price.  There is only one tree mentioned as being "in the midst of the Garden," or "in the Center"... the Tree of Life: "And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, [*or, "..."] and the tree of knowledge of good and evil."  The Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil is an addendum, tacked on at the very end.


In the ancient Hebrew understanding, "life" means "union" and "death" means "separation".  There is nothing that Adam could have eaten from within the Garden of his spirit which could have produced within him the Illusion of Separation from God; triggering within him an intense separation-anxiety disorder and driving him to work hard at becoming worthy of his own Father's love again.  The Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil (which is the type of Moses' Law) generated this Illusion of Separation within Adam's own conscience; thus, perverting his perception (or Image) of his own Father, and causing him to attempt to flee in terror from the very Loving Presence of his own Father who was "visiting him" within his own being
.  More to come...



Genesis 2: 9 (KJV)

9 And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is (1)pleasant to the sight, and (2)good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the gardenand the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 


Genesis 3: 6 (KJV)

6 And when the woman saw that the tree was (1)good for food, and that it was (2)pleasant to the eyes, and a tree (3)[*this is an ADDITIONAL QUALITY which the Tree of Life DOES NOT HAVE: PRIDE!] to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.


Revelation 2: 7 (KJV)

7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of 
the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.  [**STILL ONLY ONE TREE mentioned, as being "in the midst" of the Garden, or Paradise, of God!...**]
