"Father": Dragon (Pharaoh)? or... Lamb??


Revelation 13: 4a (KJV)
4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast...

Ezekiel 29: 1-3 (KJV)
1 In the tenth year, in the tenth month, in the twelfth day of the month, the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and prophesy against him, and against all Egypt:
3 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.

Hi Everyone,

For those of you who live in the Washington, D.C. region...  Our June, 2018 Home Fellowship Group in Ashburn, Virginia is coming up this Saturday, June 23rd at 1:00PM.  Our Virginia gatherings are held in the home of our dear sister and friend, Jackie Lonto.  The address of the meetings: 20903 Runnymeade Terrace, #207, Ashburn, VA 20147.  The Ashburn meetings include a simple, potluck lunch.  If you come, bring something you like, and we will all share together in whatever is laid out.  For any additional info, please contact Jackie @ (978) 598-3210.  We look forward to seeing everyone who can make it unto these anointed gatherings... for a wonderful time of fellowship and fresh revelation in the presence of the Lord!

Also, for those of you who live in the Reading, PA region...  This coming Sunday morning, June 24th, 2018 @ 10AM... we will be diving more into the understanding of The Fifth Seal on the Lamb's Book of Life.  The Fifth Seal is the Second Facet of The Fifth Thunder, as noted by the Apostle John in the tenth chapter of The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.  It is the Lamb (the revelation of God's Righteousness in, and through, the Sacrificial Love of Christ's Cross) who undoes, or breaks, the Seven Seals; as the Holy Spirit is only willing to work with (and through) the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, not the self-righteousness and/or effort of Man.  The Fifth Thunder revolves around this Spirit of Might, confronting the Feet that Be Swift in Running to Mischief (or "going about" to establish their own righteousness)... all at the very Seat of the Beast.   ~J&K

Does our "Gospel" bring Life and Immortality to light... now, in this present time?  The modern-day church has picked up, where the Tower of Babel left off building; gathering a congregation (city) around a pulpit (tower) which is full of concealed steps; paving and showing people "the Way"... how they can avoid some future judgment upon "sin" and the "sinner," as well as (by some vague, life-long "process") become more "God-like" and ultimately "go to heaven," or "get to heaven".  But it ignores, chooses to remain completely (more like, staggeringly...) oblivious to one monumental "Elephant in the Room": the judgment of God that has already been exacted upon Noah's Ark (Christ).  This brings up the other "Elephant in the Room"...  The Gospel of the Cross of Christ...  It was never meant to be about "going to heaven" or "getting to heaven".  It is supposed to be about Life & Immortality... about the tangible Manifestation of the Glory of God, of Resurrection Life, encased in earthen vessels or flesh bodies... right here and now; on this side of the grave, and even delivering us from the grave.  But the Harlot Church has most assuredly made it all about "going to heaven" or "getting to heaven"; and trying to be a good and moral "christian" in the meantime ("hanging on by the skin of our teeth" until that wonderful "rapture" takes place), to earn extra "brownie points" with God.  "Christianity" will tell you what you must do, in order to "get saved".  But God's Salvation is never the result of anything that Man does, or can do.  God's Salvation is a Person, Jesus Christ; and that Salvation is already an Absolute Reality, sitting here and waiting to be discovered, further unpackaged.  Man... apart from the revelation of Jesus Christ... is still in love with himself, in love with his own self-righteousness; and, the Church remains in love with themselves, in love with their own, twisted brand of self-righteousness.



2 Timothy 1: 8-10 (KJV)
8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

This one goes out to all those mega-churches, and their famous celebrity-preachers; unto whom, the modern christian "burns incense," "worships as idols"...  Nimrod demanded the tithe to build a city (congregation) and tower (pulpit), "...whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name (name of blasphemy)..."  This is why Nimrod's name means, "we will rebel, rebellion, or the valiant," and also implies, "the mighty hunter before the Lord".  But what was Nimrod the mighty hunter of?  Souls.  And notice, "...before the Lord."  Nimrod made himself to appear as "the Lord's representative" with "the Lord's message" and became a master "evangelist"; created a type of "evangelism" which focused on bringing people into a city (congregation), that revolved around a tower (pulpit).  But hidden within that pulpit, was not the revelation of the mystery (Christ in you, the hope of glory); rather, a multitude of "steps" showing people how they can "get to heaven" and/or "become more God-like" by looking unto and relying upon the strength of their own hand (self-righteousness, or the mark of the Beast).  The membership fee required: the tithe.  Yet, the tithe belongs unto the King... of kings, and Lord... of lords; and should never go into a church, ministry, or place where the emphasis is a physical building which houses a congregation, revolving around a pulpit full of steps... showing people "the Way" to "get to heaven".  This is all anti-Christ!  Yes, you have read this correctly.  And I didn't stutter.  Feel free to re-read the above.  When Nimrod demanded the tithe from Abram, Abram refused.  Because of this, Nimrod sought to kill him and Sarai.  Abram reserved the tithe for both True Royalty and a High Priest, Melchizedek (type of Christ, and Christ's Priesthood); the King of Righteousness and King of Peace, who brought forth unto Abram... not only the Bread and the Wine (Message/Meat of the Finished Work), but also the Gospel written within the stars of the constellations (Revelation of the Finished Work).



Genesis 10: 6-10 (KJV)
And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.
And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.
And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord.
10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

Genesis 14: 18-20 (KJV)
18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.
19 And he [*Melchizedek] blessed him [*Abram], and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he [*Abram] gave him [*Melchizedek] tithes of all.

Genesis 15: 1-6 (KJV)
After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.
2 And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?
3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.
And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.
And he brought him forth abroad, 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.
6 And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

Psalm 119: 89 (KJV)
89 For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven (*revelation of the Finished Work in the Stars, or Constellations).

Revelation 4: 1, 2 (KJV)
1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

The sincerity of true love is proved, or not, in our giving.  Are we abounding in the grace of giving?  Money is the poorest of all substitutes for Divine Love.  In general, we trust our money... not the power of God.  And we will attempt to run and hide from living fellowship with our Heavenly Father... run and hide from the Divine Presence, within... as long as, and so far as "our money" will allow us.  But "our money" cannot possibly catch up with/to our lusts; hence, the need for credit cards and lines of credit, as well as the need for "Mommy's and Daddy's money". It seems that if we are not running and hiding behind "our money"; then we are running and hiding behind "Mommy's and Daddy's money," attempting to avoid genuine relationship and fellowship with one another, while claiming "the love of the Father".  But where there is no giving... no mutual contribution by any and all parties involved... there can be no genuine relationship, much less fellowship, because there is no love.  The absence of giving equals the absence of love.  We can give without loving; but we cannot love without giving.  (*By nature, love is sacrifice.)  We cannot continue to claim "Divine Nature," or even "Grace," without any desire to be givers, to contribute something... anything.  In the Early Church of The Book of Acts, there was Great Generosity because Great Grace was upon them all.  Great Grace releases, produces Great Generosity.  We claim "Great Grace," yet where is the generosity?  Look at all the money in the world, and how humanity chooses to use, abuse and manipulate one another with it.  Money is all about control.  However, is money filling the gaping whole in yourheart?  Today, there are many within the Harlot Church who believe and preach that financial gain is the true indicator of godliness or "God-likeness"; but Apostle Paul warns to turn away from such.  And how does our definition of "success," being that of an outward display or appearance of financial fruitfulness compare with the image of Christ's Cross? Crucifixion victims were not only stripped naked and shamed; but also forfeited all of their earthly rights, properties and possessions to the government.  Yet, the Cross of Jesus Christ is the Ultimate Image of God's Absolute Success; of Divine Triumph, of Eternal Victory & Conquest over the Law, over sin, over the Old Creation... and over all that this present, evil world has to offer.



Acts 2: 22-24 (KJV)
22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

Acts 4: 32-34 (KJV)
32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soulneither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.
33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,

2 Corinthians 8: 7-12 (KJV)
7 Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also.
8 I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love.
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
10 And herein I give my advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago.
11 Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.
12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.

"American, Self-Help-Guru-Christianity" revolves around the deifying... the glorifying... of "self," especially our opinions, feelings and emotions; and the love of money, Baal worship or the pursuit of the appearance of outward success and/or fruitfulness (the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life).  In life, are we only looking for something, anything, that will work for us or to suit our own desired end; or are we yielding unto the heart-cry that is in everyone one of us: "Abba-Father!"?  Many years ago, someone once said to me, "The world is designed to separate you from your money."  But this couldn't be farther from the Truth.

Number one, our money does not belong unto us; but neither does our money belong unto God (like most christians claim).  Our money belongs unto the government who issued that money.  Just read the imprinting on it.  And number two, the world is really designed to distract us from our spirit's fellowship with our Heavenly Father; by encouraging, even provoking us, to pursue after and crave entitlement to all the "freedoms" and luxuries both our "hard work" and money can buy for us.  (*I think they refer to this as: "...life (apart from Christ), liberty (apart from Christ), and the pursuit of happiness (all that we want)."

Remember natural Israel in Egypt.  The best way to keep a slave in bondage (yet, thinking they are free) and from waking up unto, or discovering who they really are (in Christ) is to give them "a good job," hard labor, long hours, and a fat paycheck; and the "non-threatening" illusion (more like delusion) that they are as "free" as their money will allow them to be.  (This psychology will drive them to work even harder, for a bigger paycheck.)  In short, and apart from The Revelation of Jesus Christ, we are the god that we worship; and there is no greater "sacrifice" our god loves, than money.

The modern christian, full of the anti-christ spirit of mind or attitude of heart, views outward financial success and prosperity as "proof of godliness" or "the seal of God's approval and blessing".  Yet, does our "gospel" bring Life and Immortality (on this side of the Grave) to Light?  Apostle Paul walked in the powers of Jesus Christ's Resurrection Life on this side of the Grave; in this mortal life and in his physical body.  But why would this be of any value or significance unto us, when we have our money?  Recently, the Spirit spoke this to my heart: "John, they are going to get hit in their money.  I am not doing it to them.  They are doing it unto themselves.  Then, and only then, will there come the possibility of their becoming more open unto Me, and their forsaking of the multitude of their idols in their hearts..."


2 Thessalonians 2: 3, 4 (KJV)
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

1 Timothy 6: 3-11 (KJV)
If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
But they that will [*to be] be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

2 Timothy 1: 6-12a (KJV)
6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
11 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.
12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed...

"42" is the number signifying the "unveiling," "appearing," "coming," or "Apocalypse" of Christ in a physical body.  Under the Old Covenant, the 42nd time Israel sets up camp in the wilderness, Joshua (*Hebrew ~ "Yeshua") replaces Moses.  In the Gospel of Matthew, chapter one, there are 42 Generations from Abraham unto the Virgin Birth of a particular Baby in Bethlehem.  42 months was the length of Jesus' earthly ministry, culminating or climaxing upon the Cross of Calvary.  But if we were to have stood at the foot of Christ's Cross, the Veil being rent from top to bottom and with Supernatural Light emanating; we would have each beheld our own, physical, dead corpse hanging on that Tree of Life.  If we were to have stood and beheld for any greater length of time, we would have each seen; not only one another, but also every human being who has ever... and will ever exist... dead in Him.

[*Note: the Image of Jesus' death on the Cross shakes and removes, annihilates... completely obliterates... the False Image of our Heavenly Father being some Dragon-Pharaoh "in heaven"; leaving us with the Divine Impression & Realization of our Heavenly Father being a Lamb!]

Jesus' physical death triggered a mystical appearing of our being in Him, even from before the foundation of the world; so that, through our simple identification with Him, in... and by... and through... the absurd preaching of the revelation of this Gospel, a mystical appearing (or, Apocalypse) of Christ would be manifest and seen in us.  Enter... The Book of the Revelation (or, Apocalypse) of Jesus Christ.  In the Parable, called The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, there are Seven Thunders.  Each of The Seven Thunders contains Six Facets.  7 x 6 = 42; or the number signifying the Apocalypse of Christ IN US, in our physical bodies.

The Parable of the Two Prodigal Sons is simply another way of stating the Parable, that is called The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.  The Younger Prodigal returns home after 3 1/2 years, or 42 months.  There is a mystical appearing of Christ in the Younger Prodigal.  Now the Younger Prodigal is of power to refute the Beast that is resident in his Older Prodigal Brother; which, said Beast, causes the Older Prodigal to view and "preach"... his own Father as being a Dragon or Pharaoh... thus, blaspheming his Father, behind his Father's back, to his Father's entire household, including servants.


Luke 23: 47-49 (KJV)
47 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
48 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.
49 And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.

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.

"42 months": Younger returns, receives...


Revelation 13: 4, 5 (KJV)
And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beastsaying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
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.

Luke 15: 20, 29, 30 (KJV)
20 And he [Younger Prodigal] arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
29 And he [Older Prodigal] 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.

"That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; [*so] that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith..."  The Spirit of Might is the Fifth Facet of the Spirit of Christ (in you).  What a destructive force the Spirit of Might is... within us.  He annihilates, completely obliterates, everything within us... any and all of our self-centered, corrupt wheelings and dealings... which may stand in the way of Christ (simply) dwelling in our hearts by faith.  That is no small order; considering how steeped we have become in our own self-righteousness.  In connection with our self-righteousness, one of the major things which the Spirit of Might alters is our perception of our Heavenly Father; from being that of a Great Fiery Dragon (Pharaoh) "in heaven" (who is mysterious and difficult to please), unto that of a Lamb in us (our Father's Manifest Pleasure & Delight).  It is the revelation of the Lamb... that puts to death our self-righteousness; along with any and all of its morbid issues of self-interest.  There is one particular scripture which the Harlot Church refuses to believe, much less acknowledge (if we pay close attention, we will seldom... if ever... hear this scripture mentioned, much less explained):


2 Corinthians 5: 14 (KJV)
14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for [*as] all, then were all dead [*when that One Man died]:

One of the reasons why we despise, are indifferent toward, and even hate... one another; is because we don't know the Father, at all.  (Our heads are full of knowledge, but our hearts are void of love toward one another.)  We don't know Him as the Lamb; but as a Great Fiery Dragon, or Pharaoh, in heaven... ever crouching and waiting to reward our strict obedience, and to punish our every slightest offense or disobedience.  This distorted image of our Heavenly Father is the very thing that gives power unto, or enables the Beast... Man of Sin, or anti-Christ spirit of mind/attitude of heart... to rise and dwell within us.  Anti-Christ is both self-righteous and pro-Self.  Self-righteousness is a self-absorbed, self-worshiping spirit.  Self-righteousness is inordinately in love and obsessed with itself; not only perceiving the Father incorrectly, but also thinking that no one else but itself (and/or those just like itself) can please, or are pleasing unto "God": "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?"  Anti-Christ's heart says, "Who is as right with God as I am?"; and then, answers itself, "...any and all who are just like me, who have done as I have!"  Until the Same Love... that hung on the Cross of Calvary... beats within our chest toward one another; we are as immature children regarding all spiritual matters, knowing nothing yet as we ought to know... including, what we are talking about.


Revelation 13: 4, 5 (KJV)
And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
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.

1 John 3: 13-19 (KJV)
13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
17 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.

"Give help, let us build for ourselves a city [congregation] and tower [rostrum or pulpit, with steps], and its head in the heavens (KJV ~ 'whose top may reach unto heaven'), and make for ourselves a name... [Young's Literal Translation]."  The "tower," "rostrum" or "pulpit," of Babel was to be built with steps.  How else could one get down, once the tower was built?  Furthermore, how else could one ascend, if in need to escape the waters of judgment... of another Great Flood (despite the Rainbow set in the Cloud!)?  What it failed to do in The Book of Genesis, anti-Christ (through the Harlot Church) has accomplished today: build and complete the city, and tower or pulpit, of Babel.  Hmmm...  A congregation revolving around a tower, or pulpit, full of steps... and something else... and whose head (prominent preacher) can reach unto/into Heaven, and then (as God's representative) speak to poor, unsuspecting people on behalf of God, to show them the steps to get to Heaven and/or to achieve God-likeness!  (What a mockery of the Throne Room, with the 24 Elders seated round about the Throne of God, simply beholding the Lamb!)  Today's pulpits are known for their steps, sequences of steps, works in progress, healing processes, prophetic processings, procedures, protocols, formulas, equations, patterns, outlines, endless applications of principles, etc., etc.  But there is a major difference between telling or showing someone "what they must do, in order to get saved"; versus, simply awakening unto the staggering realization that Jesus Christ has already saved us!...


1 Corinthians 1: 30, 31 (KJV)
30 But of him [*the Father] are ye in Christ Jesuswho of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

2 Corinthians 5: 14-16 (KJV)
14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:

15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

(Genesis 11: 4a ~ Young's Literal Translation)."  What it failed to do in The Book of Genesis, anti-Christ (through the Harlot Church) has accomplished today: build and complete the city, and tower, of Babel.  "Babel" means "mixture" (Law + Grace) or "confusion"; and is the root word for "Babylon," the name of the Harlot Church in The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.    In the Hebrew language, the word "city" can be translated "congregation"... because a city is really a congregation or "gathering together" of people.  (*Note: gathering together is fine, can be wonderful!  The burning question remains: what are we choosing to gather together and fellowship around??  Christ... or, sports, programs, enter-tainment, amusement and arts [much like in the ancient and blasphemous Roman Coliseum]???)  And the word "tower" is "rostrum" or "pulpit".  So, a better way of rendering the above Scripture, would be, "Give help, let us build for ourselves a congregation and pulpit, and its head in the heavens, and make for ourselves a name..."  Babylon, the Harlot Church, is all about the outward appearance, the outward show.  In fact, most christians today worship and seek after Baal, the god of outward fruitfulness and success.  The Harlot Church, through her own example, has enabled the world to view this pursuit as being "totally acceptable to 'God'"; to use "God" to magnify and glorify themselves and their own name, so as to attempt to build and maintain for themselves their own "mini-kingdom" which bears their own name.  That name is the notorious "name of blasphemy"; because, in the magnifying of ourselves, we diminish the Name of Christ and His Majestic & Finished Work...


Revelation 13: 1 (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.

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, 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[*or, my paraphrase: "How can you believe in Christ... walk in the manifest Glory of the Father & the Son... when all you are interested in is kissing one another's asses to promote your own name, interests, agendas and programs??"]

Money... it's all about the illusion of control.  But here is the beautiful and most horribly ironic and tragic thing: when we physically die, or expire... all of our money, all of our material possessions, all that we have worked so hard to achieve and maintain (and build our false identities upon, and our pride therewith)... we lose instantly.  We lose it all!  Without the mortal, putting on immortality... and stepping over the grave... we (you and I) are eventually going to lose everything pertaining unto this earthly identity and natural name:-)  "But godliness with contentment is great gain.  For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  And having food and raiment let us be therewith content..."  The American Dream has become much like The Parable of the Retired Fool.  Here is some more irony.  Although the slave's greatest possession may be their paycheck or money (which gives them their identity, defines "who they are"); the slave's dream, vision or goal is retirement, or resting from their labors.  However, this is why a large percentage of people die within the first five years of their retirement.  Their identity (which their money gives them) is wrapped up in their job.  They lose their job, they lose their normal flow of income.  They lose their money, they lose their life; because in their mind's eye, this is who they've become... this is who they are... it's "what they do".  All they have ever learned is how to attempt to control everything... people and circumstances with their money.  But in the day of their physical demise, what do they learn about the amount of control they truly have, over things?  Yet in all their days upon the earth, have they ever become rich toward God?



Luke 12: 15-21 (KJV)
15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:

17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

From the Iraqi Dinar to Bitcoin...  From one multi-level marketing strategy and "pyramid scheme" unto another...  The Harlot Church has spread wide her legs for the world to come into her; all in the guise of finding some mystical key to release a fabled end-time "transfer of wealth," that she might "finance the gospel".  (Yet, she refuses to give "the little" that she presently has available unto her.)  False prophets and teachers twisting scripture out of context, throwing their "spin" on everything; to justify their so-called "visions" and "burdens of the word of the Lord," in an attempt to continue to make merchandise of the flock and while they swap wives in secret... behind closed doors.  One such context of scripture is the account of Joseph in Egypt.  "And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he left numbering; for it was without number," and, "...all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands."  Throughout the Holy Scriptures, "corn" symbolizes the Finished Work of the Cross of Jesus Christ: "And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first (3rd Day or 3rd Sabbath Day), that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands," and "For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear."  Joseph's story signifies that the world shall be fed with the Finished Work of the Cross of Jesus Christ; and that they will not only receive it, but release their wealth into it.  The world will receive and support this Gospel, before Joseph's own house (brethren, or the church) receives and supports this Gospel.  Remember... initially, and just like king David... Joseph's greatest persecution came from within his own father's house, from his own brethren.  And so it is today...  We are waiting for some magical, end-time "transfer of wealth"?  Oh, there will be a "transfer of wealth"... into the preaching of the revelation of the Finished Work... not only, out of the hands of the world; but also, out of the hands of the greedy, money-grubbing, self-righteous "christians" who insist that "tithes and offerings aren't for today" while they invest and blow "God's money" in and on all that the world presently values...


2 Peter 2: 1-3 (KJV)

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

John 2: 13-16 (KJV)
13 And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

Here's the thing... it's not "God's money," but neither is it "our money".  Have you ever received a paycheck with God's signature on it?  (I haven't.)  Jesus establishes that money corresponds to the natural government who issues it: "Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's."  (Money is not the currency of the Kingdom of God; the Gospel of the Cross of Christ is the currency of the Kingdom of God, because what the Gospel requires... the Gospel supplies: faith in the power of God!)  Thus, it makes perfect sense that we would refer to money as being either "God's money," or "our money".  On one hand, most christians today worship their natural government as a god; note, it used to be "God and country," but now... seemingly... God is country.  And on the other hand, if christians aren't worshipping their natural government and political leaders as deities; then we are worshipping ourselves as a god, especially our own opinions, emotions and feelings.  One of our favorite sacrifices to offer unto the god of ourselves is money; because it creates options for us and for our pride, enabling us to pursue the illusion of the kind of "freedom" that allows for us to continue attempting to control and manipulate our lives, and the lives of others.  And if it actually were "God's money," then how come so little... if anything, at all... of it, actually goes into the work of the Lord's ministry, into the Father's business and interests?


Matthew 22: 15-22 (KJV)
15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.
16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.
17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.

It is high-time for the true prophets of the Lord to stop being afraid of talking about... money.  Our Heavenly Father did not create money, you won't find it in the Garden of Eden; neither did the Godhead place monetary value upon earthly, or natural, things.  Think of all the silver, gold, brass, jewels, etc., etc. that were used in the making of Moses' Tabernacle.  Yet, no monetary value was ever ascribed unto any of it.  Man devised money and a system of finance that revolves around self-worship and control.  Every area of earthly, or natural, life is now effected by money.  But can our money save us from death?  Can you take it with you, beyond the grave?  Yet, we've worked so hard at building a false identity around it!  Money makes a terrible master, but can be a good servant... depending upon its use.  Strip away money, and credit cards, and people might just consider the option of seeking His Face; through meditation, contemplation, prayer or worship.  Let's face it, we don't need God, we have our money.  Don't we?  What's even more disturbing is that the current Grace movement has really devolved into what the scriptures refer to as "uncircumcision": or, since we are not under Moses' Law, we are "free" to do whatever we want.  Regarding giving, they say, "We will give as the Spirit leads..."  Yet, most who make this claim seldom, if ever, give anything at all.  Kind of ironic?  I guess the Spirit is not a Giving Spirit?  Yet how much money are we wasting on meaningless junk we don't need, and which overflows our basements, attics and storage rooms to such an extent that we need to have regularly scheduled yard sales or garage sales; all the while, we continue to sit back and let our "favorite ministries" freely "entertain" us?  We cannot continue to claim "divine nature" without giving, or contributing; and not just our... oops, I mean "God's"... money.  Apostle John notes that, in the Day of Christ's Appearing, or Coming, within a people (the Bride); the status quo mentality of the main-line, main-stream, denominational church and "christian" will be, "I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing (including you)..."  And the Lord's response will remain:


Revelation 3: 17b, 18 (KJV)
17 ...and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:  [*Now Jesus... that's not a good faith confession!]
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.

Tithing: act of graciousness, honor...; unto those who don't believe in tithing, ironically, you've already begun paying tithes unto Melchizedek [*Christ, our New Covenant High Priest] while you were still in the spiritual loins of our spiritual father of the faith, Abraham.  Today, those who are truly in the Father will honor the Son with their tithe...  It's the least we can do.


Genesis 14: 18-20 (KJV)
18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

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

Hebrews 7: 9, 10 (KJV)
9 And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.

10 For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.

Souls beheaded: minds renewed (lose their natural or carnal perceptions, prejudices), receive the Mind of Christ; begin to live, rule, reign as Kings and Priests from a Position of Rest... holding fast to their One, New & True Head, even Christ Himself.


1 Corinthians 2: 16 - 3: 3 (KJV)
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.
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.

Revelation 6: 9 (KJV)
9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:


Ephesians 1: 22; 4: 15 (KJV)
22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him [*Christ, not the Pope] to be the head over all things to the church,

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

Colossians 2: 18, 19 (KJV)
18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

19 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

Revelation 20: 4 (KJV)
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.

No difference between Jew, Gentile; yet Harlot worships the Outward (Natural)...


Romans 2: 28, 29; 3: 9 (KJV)
28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
9 What then? are we [*Jews] better than they [*Gentiles]No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;

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.

Ephesians 2: 14-16 (KJV)
14 For he [*Jesus] is our peace, who hath made both [*Jew and Gentile] one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us [*Jew and Gentile];
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain [*Jew and Gentile] one new man, so making peace;
16 And that he might reconcile both [*Jew and Gentile] unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Colossians 3: 10, 11 (KJV)
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him [*the Lamb] 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.

Souls slain: under the influence of a particular Altar; no longer slaves to, have lost, their earthly identity & natural name... and thus, become dead to their own self-righteousness.


Revelation 6: 9 (KJV)

Hebrews 12: 22 (KJV)
22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable [*unable to be named in order, thus no religious hierarchy or cliques] company of angels,


Hi Everyone,

For those of you who live in the Reading, Pa region...  Tomorrow morning, Sunday, May 20th, 2018 @ 10AM... we will be diving further into the understanding of The Fifth Seal of the Lamb's Book of Life.  The Fifth Seal is the Second Facet of The Fifth Thunder, as noted by the Apostle John in the tenth chapter of The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.  It is the Lamb (the revelation of God's Righteousness in, and through, the Sacrificial Love of Christ's Cross) who undoes, or breaks, the Seven Seals; as the Holy Spirit is only willing to work with (and through) the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, not the self-righteousness and/or effort of Man.  The Fifth Thunder revolves around this Spirit of Might, confronting the Feet that Be Swift in Running to Mischief (or "going about" to establish our own righteousness)... all at the very Seat of the Beast.

Also, for those of you who live in the Washington, D.C. region...  Our May, 2018 Home Fellowship Group in Ashburn, Virginia is coming up soon, on Saturday, May 26th at 1:00PM.  Our Virginia gatherings are held in the home of our dear sister and friend, Jackie Lonto.  The address of the meetings: 20903 Runnymeade Terrace, #207, Ashburn, VA 20147.  The Ashburn meetings include a simple, potluck lunch.  If you come, bring something you like, and we will all share together in whatever is laid out.  For any additional info, please contact Jackie @ (978) 598-3210.  We look forward to seeing everyone who can make it unto these anointed gatherings... for a wonderful time of fellowship and fresh revelation in the presence of the Lord!  Love and blessings, always...  ~J&K

Hi Everyone,

Here is the link to our latest YouTube video, "It's 'The Missing Thing': The Redemptive Revelation of the Father's Love":

https://youtu.be/6DEPeELTBdE


"Where there is no vision, the people perish..."  In this video we dive into the understanding of how the redemptive revelation of the Father's love... contained in the Spirit of the Word (vs. the Dead Letter)... not only delivers us from the works of the flesh; but also "slays" the Beast in us (or Man of Sin) who attempts to usurp authority from God, and sit on the Throne of our hearts... which "said Throne" is reserved for the Father and the Son (the Overcomer).  A Beautiful connection between the 12th son of Israel (Benjamin), The Parable of the Two Prodigal Sons & The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ is discussed...
