~03/27/2020: "Gravity"



“Did I not say that My Spirit would do Ten Different Things when He would come, when He would be realized; when I would come, when My Presence would be realized, within you? Why? I AM The Replacement for The Old Law. I AM The Much Higher Law. I AM The Most High Law. I AM Double-Grace; for I AM… before The Old Law ever was!  See… how that every good thing from Me, every good thing in Me, flows downhill, flows downstream and comes from Me? It is like Gravity. I AM Gravity, not only The Giver… The Inspirer or Initiator… of Life, and Breath, and All Good Things unto All; but also, I AM The Gravity that brings, and gets, and supplies all these good things unto you, even unto all. See… how that your giving pre-eminence unto yourself, or unto anything or anyone else, can and will frustrate My Grace? Did you know that there is a powerful, perpetually flowing stream inside of you? It is called The Stream of Abba-Father’s Consciousness. It is providing you with More-Than-Everything you could ever, possibly need. It is letting you in on My deepest, most intimate thoughts and secrets; and releasing within you My Living Words, My Fiery-Living-Breathing-Divine-Utterances… that you might be partakers of My Divine Nature. This is not a Word that you can learn in bible school, seminary, or through much reading and book study; but The Engrafted Word that abides in you, because I AM causing you to abide in Me. This is The True Word of God, even the very Word of Righteousness: even, Christ in you, the Hope of Glory! Have I not said that you are gods? All that is required of you, in order to be able to pick up on, and benefit from The All… My All… that is ever-running through you, that is ever-flowing through you, in The Stream of Abba-Father’s Consciousness is: a humble, open heart that willingly retains a bent knee toward Me…”
 
 


John 16: 12-16 (KJV)
12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will (1)guide you into all truth: for he shall (2)not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall (3)hear, that shall he (4)speak: and he will (5)shew you things to come.
14 He shall (6)glorify me: for he shall (7)receive of mine, and shall (8)shew it unto you.
15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall (9)take of mine, and shall (10)shew it unto you.
16 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
 


1 Samuel 17: 38-40 (KJV)
38 And Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail.
39 And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him.
40 And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd's bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine
 


1 Corinthians 14: 18, 19 (YLT)
18 I give thanks to my God -- more than you all with tongues speaking --
19 but in an assembly I wish to speak five words through my understanding, that others also I may instruct, rather than myriads of words in an [unknown] tongue.

~03/26/2020: "Kingly-Priesthood Absence"


World governments = men worshiping men; Kingly-Priesthood absence = political idols…




1 Samuel 8: 1-10 (KJV)

1 And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel.
2 Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beersheba.
And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment.
4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,
And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.
But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord.
And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.
Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.
10 And Samuel told all the words of the Lord unto the people that asked of him a king.



Psalm 2: 1-8 (KJV)

1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day [*in Resurrection] have I begotten thee.
Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.



Luke 19: 10-14 (KJV)

10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.
12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.
14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.



Revelation 1: 4-6 (KJV)

4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

~03/25/2020: "Pursuits & Desires"

Harlot pursues gifts, desires attention; Bride follows love, desires gifts…
 
 
 
Hebrews 1: 1, 2 (YLT)
In many parts, and many ways, God of old having spoken to the fathers in the prophets,
in these last days did speak to us in a Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He did make the ages;
 

1 Corinthians 13: 9-13; 14: 1 (KJV)
9 For we know in part [*under Moses’ Law], and we prophesy in part [*under Moses’ Law].
10 But when that which is perfect is come [*revelation of the Father’s Love, through Grace], then that which is in part [Moses’ Law] shall be done away.
11 When I was a child [*under Moses’ Law], I spake as a child [*under Moses’ Law], I understood as a child [*under Moses’ Law], I thought as a child [*under Moses’ Law]: but when I became a man [*by revelation of the Father’s Love, through Christ’s Grace], I put away childish things [*the righteousness which is of Moses’ Law].
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly [*under Moses’ Law]; but then [*by the revelation of the Father’s Love, through Christ’s Grace] face to face: now I know in part [*under Moses’ Law]; but then [*by the revelation of the Father’s Love, through Christ’s Grace] shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now [*by the revelation of the Father’s Love, through Christ’s Grace] abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
Follow after charity [*the Love of the Father, revealed through Christ’s Grace], and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.

~03/22/2020: "Friendship with The World"


“From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge…”  ~James 4: 1-11 (KJV)


If it is on television, or on the internet, then it must be true? Right? Has anyone noticed the sheer irony of all these more recent “global pandemics” happen-stantially occurring during Election Years? Over the course of the past few decades, I have mentioned it quite often (both publicly, and via writings), so I will say it again; the United States government’s monumental corruption and oppression are going to become glaringly apparent. In fact, the United States government will be known as one of the most corrupt and oppressive regimes, ever to exist on the planet. Contrary to popular belief and opinion, we are not about “freedom,” but “the appearance of freedom”…: and that, “freedom to serve the rich”… this is the false image that America markets and merchandises. We cannot love money (and we do… it is 
truly our first love) without having hands that shed innocent blood. But hey, as long as someone else is enslaved and being oppressed, overseas in some “third world country”… instead of us, right?


At the end of the day, the World is all about “who gets to have their hand wrapped around the gun, with their finger on the trigger”; ever fighting and warring for control over one another. Why? No example. The Harlot Church has been the same way, and therefore in agreement with the World, even providing “inspiration” unto the World; thus, further encouraging the World to be the way that it is. She was supposed to be the Light; but sadly, what she has been is Darkness, while alleging that the Darkness in herself is that True Light. How great has that Darkness been! Just take a look around the planet, and see… Jesus Christ is alive from the dead, in resurrection power; and the Church closes her doors at the slightest news of there being a “widespread headache”. The modern-day church is not the Church chronicled in 
The Book of Acts; neither is the ”Jesus,” whom she “preaches” today, the same Jesus found in The Book of Acts, but rather, it is “another Jesus”… a “more convenient One,” who is “ok” with the Harlot and the World “being the way that they are”.


This is another reason why the current, older, Leadership Generation (The Warfare Generation) within the Harlot Church… just as in Israel’s Wilderness Experience, and likewise still under Moses’ Influence… 
must die out! They have not repented… nor will they repent… or have a genuine change of heart or mind, from Law to Grace (the Gospel); but rather, continue to “look behind them”. The Harlot has truly been Lot’s Wife, not the Lord’s, ever producing more and more “Children of the Veil”. We should never complain about what we permit. We have been voting for separation from one another, all in the guise of, “We are just so busy,” for far too long. Now, it is becoming reality. “I have God, in my own way. I don’t need you…” This has been our attitude, toward one another. But now, we are losing our money too… What will we do without our first love? If we truly “had God”… if we truly were holding fast unto the One True Head; then by default, we would be drawing closer unto one another… But we don’t… and we aren’t.



_____________________________________

~03/19/2020: "Freedom from Oppression"

Oppression is manipulation, control through fear and terror. The Devil and the Harlot Church attempt to oppress, manipulate and control through fear and terror of not keeping the Dead Letter of Scripture. The ungodly and corrupt governments of men attempt to oppress, manipulate and control through fear and terror, via the demonic news media and social media outlets.  (Think about it... If they can't put you in fear, if they can't make you afraid; then, they can't control and manipulate you.) But if we are established in His righteousness, or the Father’s Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love, we shall be far from both oppression and terror; because we shall not fear. Why? Perfect Love casts out any and all fear. Fear has torment, terror has torment, because they are both based upon our performance and obedience being “good enough”… and we never, really, know for sure; whereas, the Father’s Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love has absolutely no torment. It is The Ultimate Gift, freely given in Jesus. Fear, torment, superstition, paranoia and conspiracy theories all stem from being rooted and grounded in our own self-righteousness. Self-righteousness (the righteousness of The Beast) will cause us to have no rest, day or night, because we worship ourselves and our own morality. The Beast has never known the Father as The Lamb… 
 
 
Acts 10: 36-40 (KJV)
36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)
37 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;
 
 
Isaiah 54: 13-17 (KJV)
13 And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.
14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.
15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.
16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.
17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
 
 
1 John 4: 16-19 (KJV)
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
19 We love him, because he first loved us.
 
 

Revelation 14: 10, 11 (KJV)
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, 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.

~03/18/2020: Announcement...


Hey Everyone,
 
We hope you all enjoy the new e-mail font and format! Just wanted to update you in the midst of all this coronavirus craziness... The Beauty of being called as an Apostle to small groups in these days, is that most of the large-scale nonsense and restrictions don't, really, apply. Either way, I would never abandon the call of God on my life, regardless of what any government has to say. I couldn't care less! Christ is The Big "C", not cancer or coronavirus!! That being said... Our regularly scheduled, public, weekly gatherings will continue, as they always have. The meeting times and location can be found on our website at: www.todaysvoice.org. If you do feel sick, whether it be related to the coronavirus or any other sickness that can afflict people, please feel free to come to our meetings and I will be more than happy to hug you and lay my hands on you in the Name of Jesus; perhaps, even anoint you with oil. I actually do believe in the power of God... Hanging around me and Kelly has been known to cause people to "catch the Holy Ghost" in days gone by. You see, we have contracted, and been afflicted by "C"hrist... the Anointing... now, for many years. Anaphylactic Purpora could not bury me when I was a boy, and a heart attack couldn't do it, either, back in November of 2019. If you want to remain in unbelief, well, that is your business. Otherwise, this coming Sunday morning @ 10AM, we will be continuing our series on The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, specifically looking at the initial reaction of The Beast within people; once it hears and becomes exposed unto, for the first time, both the message and power of the Two Witnesses (Moses & Elijah, fulfilled ~ The Finished Work), operating in and through the ministry of the 144,ooo... an Elect Company who lay the Foundation for The Bride. Hope to see you there! Audio-CD copies of the meeting will be available for those who are geographically challenged for a minimum love-offering of $5 per CD-copy, to help keep us going. Love and blessings in the Father's heart, always... with a spirit of power, love and a sound mind... ~J&K

~03/18/2020:  "Spirit of Fear: Prince of the Power of the Air, that NOW WORKS IN..."


Spirit of fear: prince of the power of the air (present spiritual atmosphere), or the spirit of self-righteousness (the Beast) that now works in the children of disobedience (unbelief), who are ever working to earn their Heavenly Father's love, acceptance, approval, validation, blessing... so as to avoid His "judgment".
 


Ephesians 2: 1-3 (KJV)

And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to 
the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were 
by nature the children of wrath (*we needed the revelation of the Father's Love to free us!), even as others.


Revelation 16: 17-21 (KJV)
   [*The Seventh Vial, or Bowl]
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial 
into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
18 And there were (1)voices, and (2)thunders, and (3)lightnings; and there was (4)a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 And there fell upon men (5)a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.


Romans 8: 15, 16 (KJV)

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.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, 
that we are the children of God:


2 Timothy 1: 5-7 (KJV)

When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; 
and I am persuaded that in thee also.
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.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

~03/15/2020: "Prophet Haggai & The Election According to Grace: 'I Will Blow Upon their Money...'"


The Prophet Haggai's prophecy chronicles the story of a remnant of people who are shown favor (Grace), and released from Babylonian captivity (freedom from Babylon, "Mixture & Confusion").  The purpose was that they would come back to Jerusalem and rebuild the Wall and the Temple, both which had been destroyed and burned during the former siege.  Instead, that Remnant According to the Election of Grace chose rather to use their new-found freedom to focus upon themselves, individually, and their own families.  They each went to their own houses (now fire-ravaged), and devoted their time and energy (along with the King of Babylon's expense money) to repairing their own properties and homes; thus, everyone turned the King's Grace into lasciviousness, being more concerned with building (more like re-building) a kingdom for themselves, and that bare their own name.  Sound familiar?  Fast forward to today...  The Church has been receiving a reintroduction to Grace (precisely as The Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ describes), which is the True Expression of the Father's Love.  Grace is not just some "good teaching".  Grace is a Person, Jesus Christ.  But likewise, we have turned that Grace into lasciviousness, or extremely greedy self-serving, self-obsession, self-absorption, self-pleasuring; choosing rather to focus upon "what's best for me," our families, our houses, our homes, our "careers," etc., etc.  What comes next?  In Haggai's prophecy, in essence, the Lord says, "I will blow upon their money...."  Why?  Because it is the very thing in which we are trusting (and hence, worshiping), and using as a means to divide or separate ourselves from one another, even seal off ourselves from one another in our own houses (behind our Dumb-Phones and computers); all in the guise of, "I'm just so busy..."  All the while, the Lord's purposes lie abandoned; and we... we remained wrapped up in ourselves, and in all of the world's problems around us... when we should be the Light of this World.
 



Haggai 1: 1-11 (KJV)

1 In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying,
2 Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people [*The Remnant According to The Election of Grace] say, 
The time is not come, the time that the Lord's house should be built. [*"We are just so busy!"  Yeah, worshiping our money and ourselves, and the kingdom we are endeavoring to build for "me, myself, and I!"]
3 Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying,
4 Is it time for you, 
O ye [*The Remnant According to The Election of Grace]to dwell in your cieled houses [*sealed off homes, cut off from one another], and this [*My] house lie waste?
5 Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.
Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.
7 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.
Go up to the mountain [*Mt. Zion], and bring wood [*everyone is given "a piece of the Cross," to contribute unto the whole], and build the house [*re-establish the Love of the Father in your hearts, but especially toward one another... in developing relationship and fellowship with one another!]and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the Lord.
Ye looked for much, and, lo it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the Lord of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.
10 Therefore the heaven over you is (1)stayed from dew, and the earth is (2)stayed from her fruit.
11 And I called for a drought (3)upon the land, and (4)upon the mountains, and (5)upon the corn, and (6)upon the new wine, and (7)upon the oil, and (8)upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and (9)upon men, and (10)upon cattle, and (11)upon all the labour of the hands.

~03/14/2020: "The Cross, NEVER Money, is The One-and-Only True Answer for EVERYTHING"  

Capitalism is a monetary slave system.  It may not imply servitude to a corrupt government; but it does insinuate slavery to the corrupt rich and their lusts, as well as our own.  And after all, by very definition, it is the capitalizing off of, or taking advantage of, or financial exploitation of, the needs, misfortunes and desires (lusts) of others, for personal profit and pleasure.  Yet, the Tithe is "of the Devil" and, "under the Law"; and, "all that ministers and ministries want is your money"?  (No, all we seem to want and care about is acquiring free information, to tickle our itching ears, and without any hint of a desire [from our end] for true relationship, fellowship, commitment and love with one another; and we don't care who we get it [the free information] from, as long as they deem themselves some kind of "prophet.")  Wait, I thought that it was "all God's money"?  But how much of it does He actually get?  We are so full of crap.  No, what the World wants is both our attention and money, through all of the meaningless and mindless information it continues to pump toward us 24/7; and we freely give both unto the World, without any thought, all in the name of self-preservation, convenience, entertainment and amusement.  These things are not of the Kingdom of God!



And since when was Abraham "under the Law," when the Law was given by Moses... 430 years after Abraham's physical death; and the One who received the Tithe of Abraham is Melchizedek (not Aaron), the type of Jesus Christ... our New Covenant High Priest of Grace?  Abraham was never "under the Law" in the first place; but he does actually tithe unto Melchizedek, under Grace.  Why?  We don't want to understand; because we are in love with "our money," and ourselves.  
Money is the true answer for nothing.  The Cross of Jesus Christ is the One, True Answer for Everything.  The slave's greatest reward/possession is their paycheck, which is based upon their works (their performance and/or obedience, in the eyes of their employer or master); because money is the preeminent foundation upon which any and all false identities can be built (refer back to the beginning, above)...



"People attempt to run and hide from Me, behind their money.  And if that is not enough, they will attempt to run and hide from Me behind their jobs, their children, their spouse, their country, their politicians (paid, professional murderers), and wrap themselves up in their flag.  They attempt to run and hide from Me within their church buildings, behind their stained glass windows, under both their steeples and famous preachers they all know...  But the time is coming and, even, now is... when they will no longer be able to run and hide from Me anymore, at all!  But I will stare them down, even all of them, and that, 'Face-to-face,' in and through My Elect... My Bride, by whom I will show them, even demonstrate unto them, the True Essence of My Love, Mercy and Grace."
  And where is our partaking of, our drawing upon, this Divine Nature from within, regardless of the financial currency presently being used?  We think that the Iraqi Dinar is the answer?  We think that Bitcoin is the answer?  For selfishness?  For narcissism?  We know nothing, as of yet, regarding truly spiritual matters...  The One-and-Only, True Answer is... Christ in you, the One-and-Only Hope of Glory!




Revelation 6: 12-17 (KJV)  [The Sixth Seal]

12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, 
and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?



Revelation 20: 11-15 (KJV)  [The Sixth Vial-, or Plague-, Angel]

11 And I saw 
a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; 
and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

~03/13/2020:  "His Intention in the Midst of All This, and Our Purpose..."

"Money is the worst of all things to love.  It is the root of all evil.  You can rest assured that wherever there is... wherever you may find... an absence of coming together, or a disinterest toward relationship, fellowship and My Love amongst people; then there you will witness, in all of its disturbed glory, the love of money together with the promotion... the glorification... of Self.  Soon and very soon, and you shall discover just how demonically and selfishly driven are all of the governments and news media of the World (yes... all of them, without exception); as well as the Harlot Church who claims to know Me, but continues misrepresenting Me and My Kingdom unto the World.  (The Harlot Church has never been the True Expression of My Kingdom.)  They are, all of them (of the afore mentioned), together (combined), not of the Truth, nor do they love the Truth... much less know the Truth.  I AM the Truth.  It was never My intention that you be ruled by man-made governments, of any kind; nor be enslaved by a global economic system which is driven by, and thrives on capitalism.  (For the rich and corrupt, maybe; but not for the masses, in general.)  These things are not of My Kingdom.  They never were.  My Kingdom is not of this World.  My Kingdom is not a democracy (no one can "vote" Me "in," or "out"), nor a republic; neither is My Kingdom socialist, nor communist, nor a dictatorship.  My Kingdom is Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost; and My Kingdom is not in word only, but in Power..."



Acts 17: 19-28 (KJV)

19 And they took him [*Paul], and brought him unto Areopagus, saying, May we know what this new doctrine, whereof thou speakest, is?
20 For thou bringest certain strange things to our ears: we would know therefore what these things mean.

21 (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)  [*Just like most of us!]

22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
24 
God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples [*or church buildings, synagogues and mosques...] made with hands;
25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth 
to all life, and breath, and all things;
26 
And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation [*He's only going to let all of this go so far...];
27 
That they should seek the Lord [*His intention, our purpose...], if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 
For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

~03/11/2020: "Coronavirus"

Coronavirus: "noisome" pestilence... the one, about which, everyone is talking, yammering or "making a racket".  Jesus absorbed the Coronavirus into the Servant-Body of His own physical flesh, on the Cross.  When He died, He shattered the power of Coronavirus, depriving it of its life-force.


Psalm 91: 1-10 (KJV)
1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.


Matthew 8: 14-17 (KJV)

14 And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.
15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.
16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, 
and healed all that were sick:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, 
Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.


1 Peter 2: 21- 24 (KJV)

21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
24 
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

~03/08/2020: "More on Father's Vengeance, Judgment, Wrath..."

More, on Father's "vengeance," "judgment," "wrath": God's wrath is Father's love; here's how it manifests...

 

Luke 15: 11-18a, 20, 25-28 (KJV)
11 And he said, A certain man had two sons:
12 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.
13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18 I will arise and go to my father...
20 And he arose, and came to his father. 
But when he was yet a great way off, his father (1)saw him, and (2)had compassion, and (3)ran, and (4)fell on his neck, and (5)kissed him.
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 (1)came his father out, and (2)intreated him.


Ephesians 5: 5-7 (KJV)

5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh 
the wrath of God [*the Love of the Father] upon the children of disobedience [*Literal ~ "the children of unbelief"].
7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.


Colossians 3: 5-7 (KJV)

5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
For which things' sake 
the wrath of God [*the Love of the Father] cometh on the children of disobedience [*Literal ~ "the children of unbelief"]:
7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.


Revelation 14: 9-11 (KJV)

9 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 [*the Pure Wine of the Love of the Father], which is poured out without mixture [*Pure, "Double Grace"... without ANY MIXTURE AND/OR CONFUSION OF THE LAW] into the cup of his [*own self-righteous] indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels [*true ministers/messengers of the Pure Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ], 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.

~03/07/2020: "Vengeance?  Judgment??"


Father's idea of "vengeance," "judgment"...



Psalm 94: 1-7 (KJV)

1 O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongethshew thyself.
Lift up thyselfthou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud [*the self-righteous, "Dead Letter"-Keepers].
3 Lord, how long shall the wicked [*the self-righteous, "Dead Letter"-Keepers], how long shall the wicked triumph? [*the self-righteous, "Dead Letter"-Keepers]
How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves? [*again, the self-righteous, "Dead Letter"-Keepers]
5 They break in pieces thy people, O Lord, and afflict thine heritage.
6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
7 Yet they say, The Lord shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.


John 8: 3-12 (KJV)

3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act [*how'd they know?].
Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world [*NOT MOSES, or The Dead Letter!!]: he that followeth me [*NOT MOSES, or The Dead Letter!!] shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

~03/06/2020: "Two Witnesses, Part 2"


Moses, Elijah: what'd they Witness?; their own deaths (and therefore... their fulfillment) on the Cross, in the servant body of Jesus Christ's flesh.
 


John 1: 14a (KJV)

14 And 
the Word [*Moses & Elijah, The Law & The Prophets] was made flesh, and dwelt among us...


Galatians 4: 4, 5 (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.


Luke 9: 28-33a (KJV)

28 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.
29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.
30 
And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses [*The Law] and Elias [*The Prophets]:
31 
Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.
32 
But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleepand when they were awakethey saw his glory, and the two men [*Moses & Elijah, The Law & The Prophets] that stood with him.
33 
And it came to passas they [*Moses & Elijah, The Law & The Prophets] departed from him...


Romans 3: 19-22 (KJV)

19 Now we know that 
what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: 
for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
21 
But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law [*Moses] and the prophets [*Elijah];
22 Even the righteousness of God which is 
by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference [*between the natural Jew and the Gentile]:

~03/05/2020: "Two Witnesses"


Two Witnesses: Moses, Elijah... fulfilled!



Revelation 11: 3-6 (KJV)
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy [*Elijah]and have power over waters to turn them to blood [*Moses], and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.


Matthew 22: 34-40 (KJV)

34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments [*two crossbeams of the Cross, in the physical body of Jesus Christ] hang all the law [*Moses] and the prophets [*Elijah].

~02/27/2020: "Prophetic Information Competition: Moving from Preacher to Preacher..."

What we have today is a "prophetic information competition".  Yet information is not even close to being the same thing as revelation; as one "puffs up"... inciting proud and pompous arrogance in the heart and speech, while the other stirs up a deep and previously dormant love toward both the Father and all people.  Itching ears... are what afflict the modern-day christian.  Rather than moving from strength to strength, from faith to faith, and from glory to glory; most modern-day christians settle for moving from one preacher to another preacher, ever in search of someone... anyone... who will entertain and amuse them, telling them whatever it is they want to hear (and so that they can, then, "copy and paste"... or plagiarize... that information, passing it off as their own by attaching their name unto it "free of charge," so as to impress people and build for themselves an "online ministry" that is just as shallow and superficial as they are).  There is little love, or any evidence of a desire for relationship or fellowship with the modern-day christian; because they do not know the Father, but are simply in love with themselves, along with their own twisted and perverted concept of "God"... and by default, their own self-righteousness.  Grace has been reduced to being nothing more than the novel idea, "God loves me, no matter what!"  To that, the Spirit of the Lord replies, "And what about your brother?  What about your sister?  What about all those who are in the world, who are around you, on a daily basis?  What about the love of God being shed abroad in your heart for them? even, toward them??... and, through you???"
 



Romans 5: 5 (KJV)

5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.


Jude 1: 3-4, 17-21 (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 [*the idea that, "God loves ME no matter what!" but "to heck" with EVERYONE ELSE!!], 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 
(1)mockers in the last time, who should (2)walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19 These be 
they who (3)separate themselves(4)sensual(5)having not the Spirit.
20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, 
praying in the Holy Ghost,
21 
Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.


1 John 4: 19-21 (KJV)

19 We love him, 
because he first loved us.
20 
If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God 
love his brother also.

~02/23/2020: "How We Know that We Have Passed from Death unto Life..."

We cannot continue to claim knowing the Father or His Love for us; while simultaneously, continually, and inwardly (in our hearts)... plotting how we might murder one another...



1 John 3: 11-19 (KJV)

11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, 
that we should love one another.
12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, 
and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil [*self-righteous, works- or perfomance-based], and his brother's righteous [*believing].
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.

~02/20/2020: "Psalm 91"

Psalm 91: Moses, Joshua [*Yeshua or Jesus ~ type of Christ], and God...



Exodus 33: 7-11 (KJV)

7 And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which sought the Lord went out unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the camp.
8 And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle, that all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle.
9 And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses.
10 And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in his tent door.
11 And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: 
but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.


John 8: 33-37 (KJV)

33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? [*yet, they ARE in bondage... unto Moses, in whom they trust!]
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35 
And the servant [*Moses] abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever[*see Exodus 33: 11, above]
36 
If the Son therefore shall make you free [*from Moses, the Servant & his Law], ye shall be free indeed.
37 I know that ye are Abraham's [physical] seed; but ye seek to kill me, because 
my word hath no place in you. [*rather, Moses' 'word' had its place in them...]


Hebrews 3: 1-6 (KJV)

1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, 
consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.
For this man [*Christ Jesus] was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.
4 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, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.


Psalm 91 (Whole Chapter)

1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. [*see Exodus 33: 11, above...]
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

~02/17/2020: "Affection"

What's a relationship... without affection?
 

Colossians 3: 1-4 (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 [*NKJV ~ "set your mind"] on things above, not on things on the earth.
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.


Philippians 3: 17-21 (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 whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
20 For our conversation [*manner of life, the True Life & Citizenship] is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
21 who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.


Matthew 6: 19-23 (KJV)

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

Mass-marketed, wide-spread, American "church"-ianity is merely intellectual, and based on the Dead Letter; which is why "christians" don't know the Father.  And "christians" don't know the Father...; Sons, Daughters... know the Father.  "christians" know and worship a concept called, "God," which is based on their own brainwashed understanding (taught within church buildings) of what they think the Scriptures are saying, requiring; but the Spirit cries, "Abba, Father!"  If we actually knew the Father; then we would love one another, be drawing closer to one another.  The "christian" worships the church building, "ministry," and vain "teachings"/"teachers"; but despises one another...
 


Acts 17: 22-25 (KJV)

22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things...


John 16: 1-3 (KJV)
1 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
2 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.


Romans 8: 15-17 (KJV)

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.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.


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.

~02/03/2020: "Three... One... Same..."

Laver, Sea, Lake; Three... One... Same...



Exodus 30: 17-21 (KJV)

17 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
18 
Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of brass, to wash withal: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein.
19 For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat:
20 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the Lord:
21 So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.


1 Kings 7: 23-26 (KJV)

23 
And he [*Hiram, for King Solomon] made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.
24 And under the brim of it round about there were knops compassing it, ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about: the knops were cast in two rows, when it was cast.
25 It stood upon twelve oxen, 
three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.
26 And it was an hand breadth thick, and the brim thereof was wrought like the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies: it contained 
two thousand baths.


Revelation 20: 10-15; 21: 1-8 (KJV)

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.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And 
the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into 
the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into 
the lake of fire.
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; 
and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, 
the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
And God shall wipe away 
all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more (1)death, neither (2)sorrow, nor (3)crying, neither shall there be any more (4)pain: for the former things are passed away.
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, 
Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
But the (1)fearful, and (2)unbelieving, and the (3)abominable, and (4)murderers, and (5)whoremongers, and (6)sorcerers, and (7)idolaters, and (8)all liars, 
shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Goats, Elder, must wash...  Lake.
 


Matthew 25: 34, 41 (KJV)
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world...
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels... [*No mention of "Father"...]


Luke 15: 25-28 (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.


Ephesians 5: 25-27 (KJV)

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify 
and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he 
might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

"The Ox"... "Laborers"... humble; won't resist...
 


James 5: 1-6 (KJV)

1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them [*the Laborers] which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth [*The Lord of the Armies of Heaven].
5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; 
ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter [*taken gross advantage of the True Five-Fold Ministry].
Ye have condemned and killed the just [*muzzled the Ox, silenced the Laborers... by showing no compassion, generosity or kindness!]; and he doth not resist you.


Deuteronomy 25: 4 (KJV)

4 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.

Impossible "to love"... without giving.



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.


James 5: 1-6 (KJV)

1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.

31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; 
and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
32 
And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither 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,
35 
And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.

~01/28/2020: "Muzzling the Ox, Part 10"

Apostle James notices, "Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth... [James 5: 4a (KJV)]"  Apostle Paul admonishes Timothy, "Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.  For the scripture saith, thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward [1 Timothy 5: 17, 18 (KJV)]."  The hire, or paycheck, of the laborers ["the reward" of "the Oxen," who are making available the Glorious Knowledge of the Finished Work of the Cross of Jesus Christ ("the Corn")] is crying...  Have we ever noticed money, crying?  Well, it is.  Everything in the created order, including money, is meant to flow into and compliment the purposes of God.  Paper money comes from trees; and do not trees live to glorify the Creator?  Money made from metals comes from the earth; and is not the earth the Lord's, and the fullness thereof?  So doesn't it make sense that Apostle James also mentions, "Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.  Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire.  Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. [James 5: 2, 3 (KJV)]"  I'm always amazed at the majestic accuracy of the true, prophetic Word of God!  In addition to the Stock Market, the Iraqi Dinar and Bitcoin; haven't christians also been buying up silver and gold for "the end-times"?  Yes they have!  And in the middle of it all, they are showing very little generosity toward the laborers, the Oxen... the True Five-Fold Ministry... who are "treading out the corn".  But wait a minute, I thought that it was all about "the financing of the kingdom"??  What is truly staggering about these Scriptures is that they are actually referring to christians who have money to help (they've heaped it up, for themselves!) but choose not to do so; thereby defrauding all of the ministries they are greedily receiving from, without giving it a second thought.  They exclaim, "Ministry should be free," because they hold no value for it; and if you follow them closely, you will find that the kingdom they are attempting to build for themselves (and that bears their own name)... by taking advantage of the laborers... will proceed no further, and come to nothing.  Their hearts are not right.



Matthew 6: 19-34 (KJV)

19 Lay not up for yourselves
 treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves 
treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For 
where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

~01/27/2020: "Muzzling the Ox, Part 9"

One of our Heavenly Father's prayers is that we be not conformed to this world; that we don't become like the world, driven by our own self-righteousness which includes (not only) the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life... (but also) our own hatred, prejudices, bigotries, animosities toward one another.  True Grace delivers us from this present evil world in which we live, even while we are living in it, hence, "...in the world, but not of the world"; and severs us from our connection to our earthy identity and natural name.  True Grace supernaturally alters our interests, desires and motivations; especially where money is concerned.  Great Grace releases Great Generosity: "And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.  And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.  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, and laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need... [*Acts 4: 32-35 (KJV)]"  Apostle James comments on the defrauding of them who labor in the Gospel, by those who simply want to take advantage: "Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.  Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you..."  "You have nourished your hearts..."  This references the fact that they are not only being fed spiritually by the laborers, but begin to take extreme advantage of those who are preaching the Gospel and ministering the things of the Spirit.  They "gorge themselves" spiritually with no thought of anyone but themselves; never even taking into account or consideration the price that it is all costing the laborers, contributing next to no financial support unto those who are selflessly laying down their lives and feeding them.  These are the same, degenerate, two-faced, hypocrite "christians" who are not only "muzzling the ox," while calling their own money "God's money"; but also, who are robbing that money and choosing rather to invest it into the Stock Market, the Iraqi Dinar, Bitcoin and whatever other multi-level marketing bullshit may be out there!  They are unthankful, unloving...  They are ungenerous, self-absorbed, self-obsessed; and ironically, despite all of this, they are "believing God" for... revival, signs, wonders, healings and miracles.  You know, so they can all be further entertained... for themselves.              




1 John 2: 15-17 (KJV)

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. 
If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.


Galatians 1: 3, 4 (KJV)

Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father...


Acts 4: 31-35 (KJV)

31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
32 
And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither 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,
35 
And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.


James 5: 1-6 (KJV)

Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be 
a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; 
ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
Ye have condemned and killed the just [*BY MUZZLING THE OX!]; and he doth not resist you.

~01/26/2020: "Muzzling the Ox, Part 8"

"The love of money is the root of all evil," Apostle Paul warns his spiritual son, Timothy; and, "Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.  For the scripture saith, thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward."  In the light of these things, we can now better understand Apostle James' revelation: "Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth."  A True Five-Fold Ministry Gift from the Lord Jesus Christ will minister unto you the Truth of Jesus Christ whether you pay them, or not; because not only is their heart to see Christ formed in every person, but they are inwardly and divinely under compulsion to preach the Gospel.  (Just try to get a pure bred Border Collie to stop attempting to herd people, children and other animals into one place!)  A hireling will only minister IF they are paid; because they view ministry as "just a job," versus a genuine calling from the Lord Jesus Christ.  This does not imply, nor should it ever, that the True Five-Fold Ministry shouldn't be financially compensated!  On the contrary, Apostle Paul emphasizes they be counted worthy of "double honor"; of (at least) the consideration of being paid twice what they are worth, as they are a True Ministry Gift from the Lord Jesus Christ and (should be) His shining example unto the flock...
 


1 Timothy 5: 17, 18 (KJV)

17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honourespecially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18 
For the scripture saith, thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.


Psalm 97: 10-12 (KJV)

10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
11 
Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.


James 5: 1-6 (KJV)

1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
Your gold and silver is cankered; 
and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; 
ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.


Romans 15: 7-9 (KJV)

Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.
8 Now I say that 
Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:
9 And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.


1 Peter 5: 1-3 (KJV)

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


Acts 20: 28-30 (KJV)

28 
Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, 
not sparing the flock.

Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

~01/25/2020: "Muzzling the Ox, Part 7"

Today, our eyes are everywhere... except beholding the Light of the Knowledge of the Glory of God, in the Face of Jesus Christ.  As such, we are wrapped up, entangled in the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things; and sadly, our (seemingly) only interest in "God" is in attempting to find one (a "god") who can guarantee for us the shallow, superficial, self-serving, empty lifestyle we are seeking (which revolves around the World's view of outward success), where we get to be the center of attention, so that everyone can learn "our truth".  [*Enter, all of the modern-day, so-called "Self-Help Gurus" and "Life Coaches"... you know, because there really is no such thing, or Person, as the Holy Ghost??]  And anyone who dares stand in our way of such things we love and enjoy, we make them our Public Enemy #1.  Anyone who dares stand in our way of our pursuing the things that our lusts crave... by sharing the glorious Truth of the Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ with us... we conveniently label them "a heretic".  Our money is a witness against us, just like Apostle James said it would be.  Our money declares, "We don't value the things of the Spirit of Jesus Christ!  And we have no regard for the Father's Business or Interests."  Our money speaks that we value fiction, fantasy, fables, amusement, entertainment, music, the arts, hobbies and material things.  We are now even worshiping our own creativity, which we claim, "Makes us 'most like God'!"  This is sheer, blind idiocy!  Our creativity doesn't make us like God, Adam!  Our Heavenly Father has begotten us again unto Himself, by the Glorious Resurrection of our precious Lord Jesus Christ from the dead!!  We still don't get it!  God Himself has made us "like God," "like Himself"!  But we have been blind unto this reality; ever going about to make ourselves like God, just as Adam attempted.  Is God subject to death, like we are?  Will the Lord Jesus die, again?  And why aren't we aware of His offering us something so much more... something so far greater... than our own self-indulgent, childish games: the experience of His Glorious Eternal Life, now... in this Present Moment?
 



Deuteronomy 25: 4 (NLT)

4 "You must not muzzle an ox to keep it from eating as it treads out the grain."


Psalm 100: 2-4 (KJV)

2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the Lord he is God [*not us!]: 
it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.


Galatians 6: 1-10 (NLT)

1 Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself.
Share each other's burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important.
4 Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won't need to compare yourself to anyone else.
5 For we are each responsible for our own conduct.
Those who are taught the word of God should provide for their teachers, sharing all good things with them.
Don't be misled-you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.
8 Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.
9 So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up.
10 Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone-
especially to those in the family of faith.


1 Timothy 5: 17, 18 (NLT)

17 
Elders who do their work well should be respected and paid well, especially those who work hard at both preaching and teaching.
18 For the Scripture says, "
You must not muzzle an ox to keep it from eating as it treads out the grain." And in another place, "Those who work deserve their pay!"


1 Corinthians 9: 7-18 (NLT)

7 What soldier has to pay his own expenses? What farmer plants a vineyard and doesn't have the right to eat some of its fruit? What shepherd cares for a flock of sheep and isn't allowed to drink some of the milk?
8 Am I expressing merely a human opinion, or does the law say the same thing? [*the Law is spiritual, if viewed with the Spiritual Mind]
For the law of Moses says, "You must not muzzle an ox to keep it from eating as it treads out the grain." Was God thinking only about oxen when he said this?
10 
Wasn't he actually speaking to us? Yes, it was written for us, so that the one who plows and the one who threshes the grain might both expect a share of the harvest.
11 Since we have planted spiritual seed among you, 
aren't we entitled to a harvest of physical food and drink[*money... finances... are carnal things!]
12 If you support others who preach to you [*and they did!... in Corinth, they most certainly did!]
shouldn't we have an even greater right to be supported? But we have never used [*ABUSED] this right. We would rather put up with anything than be an obstacle to the Good News about Christ.
13 Don't you realize that those who work in the temple get their meals from the offerings brought to the temple? And those who serve at the altar get a share of the sacrificial offerings.
14 
In the same way, the Lord ordered that those who preach the Good News should be supported by those who benefit from it.
15 
Yet I have never used [*ABUSED] any of these rights. And I am not writing this to suggest that I want to start now. In fact, I would rather die than lose my right to boast about preaching without charge.  [*THIS IS SARCASM!]
16 
Yet preaching the Good News is not something I can boast about. I am compelled by God to do it [*SPIRIT-EMPOWERED COMPULSION]How terrible for me if I didn't preach the Good News!  [*NOTE: THIS DOES NOT EXCUSE THE CORINTHIANS' TREATMENT OF PAUL... WHICH INCLUDED NEXT TO (ABSOLUTELY) NO FINANCIAL SUPPORT!!]
17 If I were doing this on my own initiative, I would deserve payment. 
But I have no choice, for God has given me this sacred trust.
18 
What then is my pay? It is the opportunity to preach the Good News without charging anyone[*THIS IS SARCASM!] That's why I never demand my rights when I preach the Good News.

Every single person, of whom I know, that has a valid Five-Fold Ministry call on their lives... that calling has been, and is presently, costing them everything.  So then, from where do we get this twisted idea that, "Ministry should be free!"  Free to whom?  We are an extremely ungrateful, unthankful bunch, aren't we?  Ironically, the root word for thankfulness or gratitude is "grace"; and means,"to show appreciation for, to return kindness".  "Grace" is also the root word of "gratuity".  We should remember this, the next time we are served in a restaurant...; and/or when we receive a word, which we have never before heard, from someone...
 


2 Timothy 3: 1-5 (KJV)

1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.


Romans 1: 20-22 (KJV)

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 because that, when they knew God, 
they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, 
they became fools...


Colossians 3: 14-16 (NLT)

14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.
15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. 
And always be thankful.
16 Let the message about Christ, 
in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.

In general, what the modern-day christian truly loves is money; and the god whom they most enjoy worshiping, amusing and entertaining with that money is themselves... the god of "Self".  Apostle Paul warns his spiritual son, Timothy: "Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.  For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward [*or, "hire"]..."  Notice the connection between these phrases: "... the elders that rule well," and,  "...especially they who labour in the word and doctrine," and, "...the ox that treadeth out the corn," and, "...the labourer."  This is all saying the same thing, and referring to the primary role of the True Five-Fold Ministry (Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher) being one of humbly... prayerfully... seeking the revelation of Christ through the Scriptures.  Therefore, just as "...the ox treadeth out the corn," separating the grain from the husk; likewise, the True Five-Fold Ministry goes over, and over the Scriptures for Christ's sake... of rightly dividing the Word of Truth... of separating the Spirit from the Dead Letter... and of making it palatable, digestible, easy to be understood unto those who hear them, unto those whom the Lord equips for the work of the ministry, by and through them.  There are many degenerate christians today who don't believe that  "laboring in the word and doctrine" is "actual work" or that it should warrant financial compensation; yet they are the same degenerate christians who have no problem giving "God's money" unto the World for services rendered, including buying and renting porn.  Yet, the Holy Scriptures call "laboring in the word and doctrine"... "work"!  Apostle Paul even further emphasizes that such should, "...be counted worthy of double honour"; or, be paid twice what they are worth!  Ironically, the True Five-Fold Ministry of the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher are treated worse than a whore or prostitute; at least the hooker gets paid...  Do we even love, respect or care, or even give a damn at all... for them, of whose (seemingly) tireless ministries we continue to take advantage?  Or, do we just want to continue using and abusing them, "copying and pasting" them, in hopes of building for ourselves a kingdom that bears our own name?  We forget about the Seven Sons of Sceva; but that is exactly what is happening, in all of this stuff, today: "Screw Apostle Paul!  We don't know him, have no relationship or fellowship with him; but in the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches...!"  
      


2 Timothy 2: 15-17 (KJV)
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
17 And their word will eat as doth a canker [*"a cancer"]: of whom is Hymenæus and Philetus;


2 Corinthians 3: 4-6 (KJV)

4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:
5 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.


Deuteronomy 25: 4 (KJV)

4 Thou shalt not muzzle 
the ox when he treadeth out the corn.


1 Corinthians 9: 7-16 (KJV)

7 Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock?
Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law [*the Law is spiritual, if viewed with the Spiritual Mind] the same also?
For it is written in the law of Moses, thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen?
10 
Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.
11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, 
is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things [*money... finances... are carnal things!]?
12 If others be partakers of this power over you [*in Corinth, they most definitely were!]
are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used [*"abused"] this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ.
13 
Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?
14 
Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
15 
But I have used [*"abused"] none of these thingsneither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.  [*PAUL'S SARCASM ~ IF PAUL WERE TO DIE, THEN WHO WOULD BE ABLE TO HEAR THE GOSPEL COMMITTED UNTO HIM?]
16 
For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessit[*SPIRIT-EMPOWERED COMPULSION] is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!  [*NOTE: THIS DOES NOT EXCUSE THE CORINTHIANS' TREATMENT OF PAUL... WHICH INCLUDED NEXT TO (ABSOLUTELY) NO FINANCIAL SUPPORT!!] 


1 Timothy 5: 17, 18 (KJV)

17 Let 
the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18 For the scripture saith [*DEUTERONOMY 25: 4, ABOVE], 
thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

"Corn" is the Finished Work of the Cross of Jesus Christ, the Gospel; the Hidden Message contained within the Scriptures.  Therefore, as the Ox treads out the corn, separating the grain from the husk; likewise, the True Five-Fold Ministry goes over, and over the Scriptures, rightly dividing the Spirit from the Dead Letter and making it palatable... digestible... easy to be understood... unto those who hear them, unto those whom the Lord equips by and through them.  The mouth of such an Ox should never be muzzled [*muzzled = given no financial support], as we would only do so to our own financial detriment and ruin; regardless of any of our Stock Market, Iraqi Dinar and Bitcoin investments...



Matthew 12: 1 (YLT)

1 At that time did Jesus go 
on the sabbaths through the corn, and his disciples were hungry, and they began to pluck ears, and to eat,


Mark 4: 28, 29 (KJV)

28 for of itself doth the earth bear fruit, first a blade, afterwards an ear, 
afterwards full corn in the ear;
29 and whenever the fruit may yield itself, immediately he doth send forth the sickle, because the harvest hath come.'


Proverbs 14: 3-5 (KJV)

3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: 
but much increase is by the strength of the ox.
A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.


Deuteronomy 25: 4 (KJV)

4 Thou shalt not muzzle 
the ox when he treadeth out the corn.


1 Corinthians 9: 7-16 (KJV)

The True Gospel always cuts straight to the heart; versus, catering to our own preferences and convenience...  "Muzzling" = giving no financial support; whereas, the Harlot Church (Babylon) markets... merchandises... products we can purchase.  The christian will buy merchandise, will purchase product (just like the World); but (in general) they won't tithe or give offerings, because they don't value relationship with... much less, fellowship with... one another.
 


Hebrews 4: 12, 13 (KJV)

12 For the word of God [*the True Gospel] 
is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.


Revelation 2: 23b (KJV)

23 ...and 
all the churches [*NOT, "the World"] shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works [*the motivations behind what our hearts are "working" or "devising"].

We are being held in perpetual, unbroken communion and fellowship with the Eternal Godhead, through the physically resurrected and glorified body of Jesus Christ.  This goes way beyond "doing daily devotions," "setting aside time for God"; and magnifying our own regularly scheduled rituals (and seasons) of prayer and fasting, as well as praise and worship.  All such things attempt to compartmentalize God, regarding the structure of our daily lives and routines.  But Eternal Life is much, much more than that!  Eternal Life is the inward and never-ending experience of the deep, deep, deep, intimate knowing of the Father; and Jesus Christ, Whom the Father has sent.  "Likewise reckon ye also [*or, 'simply consider'] yourselves to be dead indeed unto sinbut alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord...[Romans 6: 11 (KJV)]" and, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord... [Romans 6: 23 (KJV)]"  Nowhere, in either of these two verses, is there any indication of effort or strain on our part to "hear from God"!  Any and all such inclinations stem from an anti-Christ "gospel" (*really, not the Gospel at all!) which creates the illusion of separation from God in our minds.  So, we have to "struggle spiritually" to commune with God, hear from God?  You know, most Christians (especially, "Christian ministers") do not simply reckon themselves... do not simply consider themselves... to be dead to sin, through the physical body of Jesus Christ?  The more focused we are, on our own attempts at "dying to sin" and/or "dying to 'Self'"; the more Self-indulgent, the more Self-obsessed we become!  Imagine how much time we have wasted, striving to "die to sin" (which death has already been accomplished in the physical body of Christ, on the Cross), striving to "die to 'Self'"; when we could have been spending all of that time, simply setting both our attention and affection on the One Who loves us, and enjoying our communion... our fellowship with Him!!



John 17: 1-4 (KJV)

1 These words 
spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heavenand said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
2 As thou hast given him power over 
all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4 I have glorified thee on the earth: 
I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

~01/17/2020: "No Longer Know in Part..."

Faith is supernatural vision, spiritual sight (and insight).  Ultimately, we are transformed not by what we hear, but by what (Who) we are made to see.  This is the difference between the Dead Letter, versus the Spirit; the difference between the Servant (Slave), versus the Son.  It is far greaterto behold the Light of the Knowledge of the Glory of God in the Face of Jesus Christ; than it is to "hear the voice of God".  The Older Prodigal heard the voice of his Father, while never comprehending (perceiving) the love of his Father...; until his own, Younger Prodigal Brother came home.  The Old Testament Prophets heard the voice of God; but none could steadfastly gaze into the Face of God, but in part... not without the Veil.  Today, the Harlot Church has made a dead religion out of "hearing from God"...  And the sheer irony of it all is that (somehow) "that particular voice of God" never seems to be saying anything to anyone other than what is comfortable and convenient for them?  But who is going to argue with, "God told me...," or "God spoke to me...?"  But where is the love of God, the heart of our Heavenly  Father... beating in our own chest... toward one another?  Yeah, we are just so busy... ever learning, and never able to come unto the knowledge of the Truth (of all this); ever searching for someone who will tell us what we want to hear, so that we can go right on attempting to control and manipulate our lives, and the lives of those around us.  Besides, we have to eat, drink, be merry, get fat, save for retirement and... die!  We don't have time for anything or anyone else.  Isn't that right?



Acts 26: 13-19 (KJV)

13 At midday, O king, 
I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.
14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
15 
And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for 
I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
18 
To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto 
the heavenly vision:


2 Corinthians 3: 4-6, 12-18; 4: 1-7 (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.
12 
Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
13 
And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
14 
But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
15 
But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, 
the vail shall be taken away.
17 
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
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.
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 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 [*with the DEAD LETTER OF MOSES' LAW!] which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.
For God, who commanded 
the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.


Hebrews 1: 1-3; 2: 9 (KJV)

1 God, 
who at sundry times and in divers manners [*Literal "who in part... spoke"] spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds [*our Father is no longer "speaking in part," because THAT WHICH IS PERFECT IS ALREADY COME!]
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:
But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

~01/16/2020: "'Christ' or 'the Anointing'..." 

"Christ" or "the Anointing": the tangible, saving, healing, delivering, burden-removing, yoke-destroying power of God.  The simple key to flowing in the Anointing: faith, that is energized or actuated by the unconditional love of our Heavenly Father... deep from within our spirits... toward people.
 


Romans 5: 1-5 (KJV)

1 Therefore being justified by [*His] faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
By whom also 
we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5 And hope maketh not ashamed; 
because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.


Ephesians 3: 14-21 (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,
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
17 
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, 
according to the power that worketh in us,
21 Unto him 
be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.


Galatians 5: 6 (KJV)

6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing [*Greek ~ "to make tremendous power available, miraculous and dynamic in its working"], nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

~01/15/2020: "Reputation?, Part 3 (Conclusion)"

"Reputation": the Beast encourages the creation of an Outward Image; requires, even demands, that that Image be worshiped... in order for anyone to remain in its life, or continue being a part of its life.  But all that Image is... all that Reputation is... is a Facade; behind which, we are choosing to hide ourselves, to keep out people... and from allowing them a chance to get to know "the real us".  Most of us prefer that the Image, we have worked so hard to create and maintain, would actually speak unto people rather than we, ourselves; because we really don't like people, simply because we really don't like... much less, love... ourselves (with the Love of our Heavenly Father).  It is "the trumpeting" of the True Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ which brings down that Facade.  In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ... that Facade (Our Wall of Denial & Disdain) is coming down!!
 


Revelation 13: 11-18 (KJV)

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 
And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth 
in the sight of men,
14 
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.


Proverbs 21: 21-23 (KJV)

21 He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
22 A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence [*ITS WALLS!] thereof.
23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.


2 Corinthians 10: 3-5 (KJV)

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
(
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;


Joshua 6: 15-22 (KJV)
15 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times.
16 And it came to pass at the seventh timewhen the priests blew with the[*seven] trumpets [*Remember the Seventh Trumpet, in The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ!], Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the Lord hath given you the city.
17 And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein, to the Lord: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.
18 And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.
19 But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated unto the Lord: they shall come into the treasury of the Lord.
20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat [*INTO the ground], so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
21 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.
22 But Joshua had said unto the two men that had spied out the country, Go into the harlot's house, and bring out thence the woman, and all that she hath, as ye sware unto her.


Revelation 10: 1-7 (KJV)

1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write [*EXPLAIN] them not.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel [*the seven trumpets], when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

How is this, for "reputation"?...



Mark 3: 20-22 (KJV)

20 And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.
21 And when 
his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself [*Greek ~ "mentally unbalanced"].
22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.


Mark 3: 20-22 (NLT)

20 One time Jesus entered a house, and the crowds began to gather again. Soon he and his disciples couldn't even find time to eat.
21 When 
his family heard what was happening, they tried to take him away. "He's out of his mind," they said.
22 But the teachers of religious law who had arrived from Jerusalem said, "He's possessed by Satan,[a] the prince of demons. That's where he gets the power to cast out demons."


Mark 3: 20-22 (AMPC)

20 Then He went to a house [probably Peter's], but a throng came together again, so that Jesus and His disciples could not even take food.
21 And when 
those who belonged to Him (His kinsmen) heard it, they went out to take Him by force, for they kept saying, He is out of His mind (beside Himself, deranged)!
22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, He is possessed by Beelzebub, and, By [the help of] the prince of demons He is casting out demons.

~01/13/2020: "Reputation?"

True Sons: make themselves of no reputation...



Philippians 2: 1-11 (KJV)

1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

~01/12/2020: "New Covenant, Part 3"

"Blessed" in Abraham, not Moses; Harlot Church masturbates unto... fornicates with... Moses.
 


Galatians 3: 5-12 (KJV)

5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among youdoeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
6 Even as 
Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
7 Know ye therefore that 
they which are of faith [*NOT through natural birth or lineage], the same are the children of Abraham.
And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, 
In thee [*NOT, "in Moses"!] shall all nations be blessed.
9 So then they which be of faith 
are blessed with faithful Abraham  [*NOT Moses].
10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
11 
But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
12 
And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.


Jude 1: 7-9 (KJV)

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner
giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
Yet Michael the archangel, 
when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.


Revelation 12: 7-10 (KJV)

And there was war in heaven: 
Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: 
for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.


John 5: 45-47 (KJV)

45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: 
there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
46 For 
had ye believed [*NOT, "OBEYED!"] Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.
47 But 
if ye believe not [*NOT, "OBEY NOT"] his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

Abram fell asleep (symbolically died in, and together with, the sacrificial animals), and was effortlessly included in The Father-Son Covenant; likewise, we ALL fell asleep (vicariously, mystically died together) in the servant-body of Jesus Christ's own flesh (on the Cross of Calvary), and were effortlessly included in The Father-Son New Covenant...  No one is excluded. 




Genesis 15: 10-12, 17, 18a (KJV)

10 And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another [*IT WAS A BLOOD-BATH...]: but the birds divided he not.
11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.
12 And when the sun was going down, 
a deep sleep fell upon Abram [*he "fell asleep in the blood"]; 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 [*the Father], and a burning lamp [*the Son] that passed between those pieces [*COVENANT WALK].
18 In the same day 
the Lord made a covenant with Abram [*while he was "sleeping in the blood"], saying, Unto thy seed [*Christ; but Abraham was... as we ALL were... effortlessly included] 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.


Romans 6: 1-7 (KJV)

1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2 God forbid. How shall 
we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
Know ye not [*a revelation is needed, necessary], that so many of us as were baptized [*NOT water baptism, but vicariously... mystically] into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism [*NOT water baptism, but vicariously... mystically] into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
For if we [*ALL... as in, WE ALL WERE!have been planted together in the likeness of his death [*and, WE ALL WERE!], we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
Knowing this [*a revelation is needed, necessary]that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.


Colossians 2: 9-13 (KJV)

9 For 
in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And 
ye are complete in him [*where is "the process"??], 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 [*NOT water baptism, but vicariously... mystically], wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation ofGod, 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;

New Covenant: between God, Himself...



Hebrews 6: 13, 14; 7: 22 (KJV)

13 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,
14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I willmultiply thee.
22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.

Galatians 3: 20 (KJV)
20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one [*in the physical body of Jesus Christ, in the servant-body of His own flesh].


Genesis 15: 7-18 (KJV)

7 And he said unto him, I am the Lord that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.
8 And he said, Lord God, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?
9 And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.
10 And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.
11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.
12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.
16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace [*the Father], and a burning lamp [*the Son] 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, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

~01/03/2020: "Harlot's House (Church Building) on Every Street Corner..."

The fact that most Christians today are still subjecting themselves unto the fears, superstitions, paranoias and "divine intrigue" of the mysterious meanings connected with the numeric value of any given calendar year; is proof that we are still under the influence of the Law of Moses, and its spirit of bondage to fear.  And hey, why not?  We worship angels, don't we?  Don't we understand that we shall judge angels?  These childish things have absolutely nothing to do with Grace.  But where is faith, that is energized by the Father's love?  "Blah, blah, blah...  But John, what is God 'going to do this New Year'?  Tell us the 'deep mysteries'!  What 'great thing' is He planning for 2020?  What does He have in store for us, for me?"  How about bring His very own love to perfection in our hearts; first and foremost, toward one another... as brethren?  Too anti-climactic?  How about draw us away from worshiping the church building (the Harlot's house); and from financing all of the ridiculous programs and nonsense transpiring in those whore houses... for the purpose of putting butts in the seats for business connections, social connections and so the building fund can be paid off?  Still too anti-climactic?  How about bring us into the realization of the Tithe being... actually... for the financing of the Gospel Message; and that there is a major difference between sowing financially into the spirit of Aaron, versus the Spirit of Melchizedek?  And finally, for all of the "love b.s." we talk with our mouths, how about bring us into close relationship and fellowship with one another on a Grass Roots level; so that we can/will gather and fellowship with one another (apart from both the "church building," and the praise of men) around the things that actually pertain unto the Person and desires of our Lord Jesus Christ?



Proverbs 5: 1-14 (KJV)

1 My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
9 Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;
11 And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
12 And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
13 And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
14 I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.


Proverbs 7 (Whole Chapter)

1 My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.
2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.
3 Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.
4 Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:
5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.
6 For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,
7 And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
8 Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,
9 In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
10 And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
11 (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
12 Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
13 So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,
14 I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.
15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
16 I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.
17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
19 For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
20 He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.
21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
23 Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
24 Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
25 Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.
26 For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
27 Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.


Revelation 18: 21-24 (KJV)

21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
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 was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

~01/02/2020: "2020, It's Just Another Year; We Are No Longer in Bondage to Days, Months, Times & Years..."

Hi Everyone, I'm back and will soon be doing a new video update on my health, my heart, and all of the truly bizarre things that transpired toward the end of this past year.  So, please stay tuned!  The calendar year of 2020... it's just another year.  I know that there are probably multitudes in the prophetic camp who are always attempting to equate the numeric value of the calendar year unto some deep, hidden, prophetic meaning of what "God is going to do"; but it is all just a bunch of bondage to superstition, fear and paranoia.  We might as well just read our horoscopes on a daily basis, for God's sake!  Our Heavenly Father has always had "perfect" 20/20 vision; and we will too, provided we allow the revelation of the Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ to remove the veil from our hearts and minds, so that the eyes of our understanding will be able to see clearly!  Our Heavenly Father is not restricting Himself, or any of His Fullness to some pre-determined calendar year or time-frame... or to any particular set of days, months, times or years... as we are no longer subject unto such childish things.  Our Heavenly Father has only chosen to "limit" Himself to all of the fullness of God in Christ Jesus!  We are in Christ Jesus...  Therefore, all of the fullness of the Godhead dwells in Him (who is the Head), and in us (we are His Body), both bodily and... right now.  Ahh... "now," that blessed, eternal "now"!  We have become wasteful and so-called "experts" on "all that God is going to do" (in the near and far future); but where are the people who have become disconnected (even delivered) from the bondage to natural time and space, and who are comprehending and moving in the power of the Spirit... in the "eternal now"?



Acts 17: 22-28 (KJV)

22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, 
I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
24 
God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands [*in CHURCH BUILDINGS];
25 
Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, 
and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
27 
That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 
For in him we [*ALL] live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we [*ALL] are also his offspring [*IN CHRIST JESUS].


Colossians 2: 9, 10, 13-17 (KJV)

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:
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;
14 
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances [*MOSES' LAW] that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
16 
Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17 
Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.


Ephesians 1: 15-23 (KJV)

15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, 
and love unto all the saints,
16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18 
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may knowwhat is (1)the hope of his calling, and what (2)the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
19 And what is 
(3)the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believeaccording to the working of his mighty power,
20 
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to 
the church,
23 
Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.


2 Corinthians 3: 12-18 (KJV)

12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
13 
And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
14 
But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
15 
But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, 
the vail shall be taken away.
17 
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
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.

~12/09/2019: "Inward Life vs. Outward Show"

If we truly possess the revelation of Jesus Christ, then exactly how difficult is it for us to open our mouths and share that beautiful message with people?  The spirit of anti-Christ would rather attempt to hide behind a multitude of things that "God" is allegedly telling it... or, not telling it... to do.  And once again, we are the Older Prodigal Son... who not only despises his brother (and other people, in general); but also, who has never known, nor presently carries, the heart of his Father.  Religion is all about money, and the external appearance of things, and outward success, and the praise of men, and self-righteousness... and about finding "the kind of 'god'" who is both "comfortable and convenient for me" and who (simultaneously) won't piss off too many of our family and friends closest to us; because we want people to like us and, God forbid, we should say something (anything) that might not make too many people happy with us!   A "god" whom, if we can please enough, can and will guarantee for us the life and lifestyle that we want.  But when the true Lord Himself is our Shepherd, we "shall not want"... anything... if we know that we know we have Him, and He has us, and His Desire is toward us!!  He is our Everything!  If not, then all we are seeking is a bunch of outward (or external, superficial) "magic" formulas, patterns, outlines, equations, sequences, steps, sequences of steps, applications, processes, "healing" processes, works in progress, protocols, etc., etc. from "any and all" so-called famous preachers or "life coaches" who can promise us that they can take us into their "promised land"... where, ironically, we already are in Christ Jesus.  But all that these things do, is further alienate us from the life of God within us; from the Lamb's Book of Life... the Volume, or Fullness, of Jesus Christ's Resurrection Life... resident inside of us.  
 



Romans 7: 5 (KJV)

5 For 
when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.


Galatians 1: 10-12 (NRSV)

10 Am I now seeking human approval, or God's approval? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still pleasing people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
11 For I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that 
the gospel that was proclaimed by me is not of human origin;
12 
for I did not receive it from a human source, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.


Romans 2: 28, 29 (NRSV)

28 For a person is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is true circumcision 
something external and physical.
29 Rather, 
a person is a Jew who is one inwardly, and real circumcision is a matter of the heart-it is spiritual and not literal. Such a person receives praise not from others but from God.


Romans 2: 28, 29 (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.


Luke 6: 26 (KJV)

26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

~12/07/2019

The carnal (or, natural) mind views the Holy Scriptures from an earthly perspective, fully persuaded of its having to apply all of those written performance requirements and obedience standards; ever-fearful of being displeasing unto the Pharaoh (*not Father) it perceives in heaven, and thus reducing the revelation of Christ to nothing more than "common sense-fear based-reasoning".  Such a spirit of mind, or attitude of heart, will always feel as if it is "going through the (outward) motions"; without having any genuine sense of a deep, personal communion... exchange... with the Spirit, or connection to the heart of the Father. 
 


Romans 7: 5 (KJV)

5 For 
when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.



2 Corinthians 3: 5-11 (KJV)

5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselvesbut our sufficiency [*Source of the Spirit] is of God;
Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testamentnot of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
7 But if the ministration [*ministry] of death [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture], 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 [*in, and by, and through the Cross of Jesus Christ]:
How shall not the ministration of the spirit [*of the Scripture, Jesus Christ] be rather glorious?
9 For if the ministration of condemnation [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture] be glorymuch more doth the ministration of righteousness[*the Spirit of the Scripture, Jesus Christ] exceed in glory.
10 For even that which was made glorious [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture] had no glory in this respectby reason of the glory [*the Spirit of Scripture, Jesus Christ] that excelleth.
11 For if that which is done away was glorious [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture]much more that which remaineth is glorious [*the Spirit of Scripture, Jesus Christ].

The strength of sin is the Law (*Moses, or the Dead Letter of Scripture); but if we can show people how Jesus Christ Himself (*the Spirit of Scripture) single-handedly fulfilled all that Moses was truly requiring, then sin will lose its hold on... and begin to unravel in... people's lives... and eventually, so will DEATH itself!




1 Corinthians 15: 31, 34, 56, 57 (KJV)

31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily [*simply consider myself "dead" to the performance requirements and obedience standards of the Dead Letter of Scripture].
34 Awake to righteousness [*the Spirit of Scripture, Jesus Christ... or, the Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love of our Heavenly Father, as revealed in and through THE CROSS OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST], and sin not; for some have not the [*THIS] knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law .
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.



Romans 7: 12-14a (KJV)
 
12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good [*BUT, NOT "LIFE"!].
13 Was then that which is good [*BUT NOT "LIFE," the Law] made death unto me? God forbid. But sin [*selfishness, or self-absorption AND NARCISSISM], that it might appear sin [*selfishness, self-absorption AND NARCISSISM], working death in me by that which is good; that sin [*selfishness, self-absorption AND NARCISSISM] by the commandment might become [*or, "appear"] exceeding sinful.
14 For we know that the law is spiritual...



2 Corinthians 3: 5-11 (KJV)

5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselvesbut our sufficiency [*Source of the Spirit] is of God;
Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testamentnot of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
7 But if the ministration [*ministry] of death [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture], 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 [*in, and by, and through the Cross of Jesus Christ]:
How shall not the ministration of the spirit [*of the Scripture, Jesus Christ] be rather glorious?
9 For if the ministration of condemnation [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture] be glorymuch more doth the ministration of righteousness[*the Spirit of the Scripture, Jesus Christ] exceed in glory.
10 For even that which was made glorious [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture] had no glory in this respectby reason of the glory [*the Spirit of Scripture, Jesus Christ] that excelleth.
11 For if that which is done away was glorious [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture]much more that which remaineth is glorious [*the Spirit of Scripture, Jesus Christ].

"When we were..."
 means, "we no longer are."  The True Gospel, when heard and comprehended, should produce within us no more conscience of sins...
 



Romans 7: 5 (KJV)

5 For 
when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.



Hebrews 10: 1-4, 11-18 (KJV)

1 For 
the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers 
once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.
But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats 
should take away sins.
11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
12 
But this man [*Jesus Christ], after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
14 For 
by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
16 
This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
17 
And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
18 
Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

~12/03/2019:  "The Simple Key to Romans 7"


The key to Romans 7...
 

Romans 7: 1-6 (KJV)
1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the [*Moses'] law,) how that the [*Moses'] law hath dominion over a man [*Adam] as long as he liveth?
2 For the woman [*Humanity] which hath an husband [*Adam] is bound by the [*Moses'] law to her husband [*Adam] so long as he liveth; but if the husband [*Adam] be dead, she [*Humanity] is loosed from the law of her [*former] husband [*Adam].
3 So then if, while her husband [*Adam] liveth, she [*Humanity] be married to another man [*Resurrected Christ], she shall be called an adulteress [*and so will Christ Himself!... yet, this IS Babylon's confused and mixed-up view!]: but if her husband [*Adam] be dead[*and, HE IS!], she [*Humanity] is free from that law[*of Moses]; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man [*the Resurrected Christ].
4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the [*Moses'] law by the body of Christ [*Adam's death on the Cross, in Jesus]; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
But now we are delivered from the law...  [*Because not only did Jesus Himself singlehandedly fulfill the Law (in all of its types and shadows); but also, Jesus went even further in that He fully embraced and absorbed ALL of the Adamic Sin, and hence, ALL of the Adamic Race in Himself (He fully became Adam and the entire Adamic Generation, on the Cross), thereby putting Adam to death... us to death... even, the whole COSMOS to death... Sin to death... AND, DEATH ITSELF to death... in and of Himself.  YES, DEATH [*THE ILLUSION OF SEPARATION FROM GOD] DIED ON THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST!!  JESUS CHRIST'S DEATH ON THE CROSS OFFICIALLY CUT US OFF FROM ADAM, AND ADAM FROM US, NULLIFYING OUR FORMER UNION WITH ADAM AS WELL AS THE LAW THAT BOUND US UNTO ADAM!]

 

THEREFORE, we are no longer in the flesh, no longer in Adam.  We are now... and only... in Christ.; AS IS ALL OF HUMANITY!!  Most of Romans 7 is spoken from the perspective of Paul's former days, under the influence of Moses' Law, and when he was still trying to please God with his own obedience TO, and performance OF, THE DEAD LETTER OF SCRIPTURE... or, "doing good" and "abstaining from evil" [*Remember that Tree??].  In Romans 7, Paul is referring back to what his life used to be like, before the revelation of Jesus Christ; NOT to how his life NOW IS in Christ!  I have never, personally, met anyone who has gotten Romans 7 "right," yet!:-)



___________________________________________


~12/02/2019: "Moses' Law Bound Us to Adam"


Law [*Moses] bound us to Adam; Jesus put Adam to death...




Romans 6: 6 (YLT)

6 this knowing, 
that our old man was crucified with [him], that the body of the sin may be made useless, for our no longer serving the sin;



Romans 7: 1-6 (KJV)

1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the [*Moses'] law,) how that 
the [*Moses'] law hath dominion over a man [*Adam] as long as he liveth?
2 For the woman [*Humanity] which hath an husband [*Adam] 
is bound by the [*Moses'] law to her husband [*Adam] so long as he livethbut if the husband [*Adam] be dead, she [*Humanity] is loosed from the law of her [*former] husband [*Adam].
3 So then if, while her husband [*Adam] liveth, she [*Humanity] be married to another man [*Resurrected Christ], she shall be called an adulteress [*and so will Christ Himself!... yet, this IS Babylon's confused and mixed-up view!]: but 
if her husband [*Adam] be dead [*and, HE IS!], she [*Humanity] is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man [*the Resurrected Christ].
Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the [*Moses'] law by the body of Christ [*Adam's death on the Cross, in Jesus]; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.



Colossians 2: 10, 11 (KJV)

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 [*Adam's] body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:



Hebrews 11: 15, 16 (KJV)

15 And truly, 
if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
16 
But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.



Revelation 18: 7, 8 (KJV)

How much 
she [*Babylon, the Harlot Church] hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow [*Babylon, the Harlot Church, refuses to acknowledge Adam's death, the death of her Former Husband (Old Man) on Christ's Cross!], and shall see no sorrow.
Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

~12/01/2019

Adam was our Old Man (First Husband); Christ put Adam to death, circumcised Adam from us... from being our "covering"... because he obstructed our view of seeing we have been in Christ, all along.  So, what seems to be the problem?  When will we let go of Adam, in our mind; by simply choosing instead to learn of, and put on the New Man (Christ)?




Roman 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[*we were ALL "in Adam" when Adam sinned]:
13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law [*Romans 3: 20... "by the law is the knowledge of sin"].
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 that was to come.



Romans 7: 1-6 (KJV)

1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the [*Moses'] law,) how that 
the [*Moses'] law hath dominion over a man [*Adam] as long as he liveth?
2 For the woman [*Humanity] which hath an husband [*Adam] 
is bound by the [*Moses'] law to her husband [*Adam] so long as he livethbut if the husband [*Adam] be dead, she [*Humanity] is loosed from the law of her [*former] husband [*Adam].
3 So then if, while her husband [*Adam] liveth, she [*Humanity] be married to another man [*Resurrected Christ], she shall be called an adulteress [*and so will Christ Himself!... yet, this IS Babylon's confused and mixed-up view!]: but 
if her husband [*Adam] be dead [*and, HE IS!], she [*Humanity] is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man [*the Resurrected Christ].
Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the [*Moses'] law by the body of Christ [*Adam's death on the Cross, in Jesus]; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
5 For 
when we were in the flesh [*when Adam was our husband], the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
But now we are delivered from the law [*of Moses], that being dead [*Adam's body of sin] wherein we were held; that we should [*now] serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.



Colossians 2: 10, 11 (KJV)

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 [*Adam's] body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:



Hebrews 11: 15, 16 (KJV)

15 And truly, 
if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
16 
But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.



Revelation 18: 7, 8 (KJV)

How much 
she [*Babylon, the Harlot Church] hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

Hi Everyone,

"People say they come into My House to worship and praise Me.  There are no structural places I call, "My House."  My House is within yourself; there you will find My Spirit who cries out to Me.  There is where My House is... within yourself, to go wherever you go.  I AM with you.  So your worship to Me is when you decide to stop what you are doing for yourself and come to Me with praise and worship.  Praise and worship are not only with your mouth from your lungs, but it comes from your heart, your inner-being.  I look not at your outer being, but I AM interested in your inner being.  Your mouth should speak what it hears from the inside... (*from) Me.  You know the mouth speaks death every time it opens up.  Be quick to hear and slow to speak for then you allow Me to move on your behalf with edifying words; Words of Peace, Joy, Wisdom, Understanding, Love... not just for others to hear, but for you to hear as well.  My words... to be heard over and over again on a daily basis.  Anytime, any place.  You need not the four walls of a building to praise and worship Me."

Adam: Humanity's first... abusive... husband.      




Roman 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 [*we were ALL "in Adam" when Adam sinned]:
13 (For until the [*Moses'] law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law [*Romans 3: 20b... "by the law is the knowledge of sin"].
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.



Romans 7: 1-6 (KJV)

1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that 
the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
2 For the woman which hath an husband 
is bound by the law to her husband so long as he livethbut if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her [*former] husband.
3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but 
if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
5 For 
when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

Do we understand why we are dead to the Law of Moses, by the crucified and dead body of Christ on the Cross?  And if we are dead to the Law of Moses (which we most certainly are), by the crucified and dead body of Christ on the Cross; then how is it that we think Grace is empowering us to go back and keep the Law of Moses... when we are dead to it?  There is so much confusion today regarding the Law, the old man, the flesh, and the whole concept of "dying daily".  It is all, really, quite sad.       
 



Romans 7: 1-6 (KJV)

1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that 
the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
2 For the woman which hath an husband 
is bound by the law to her husband so long as he livethbut if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her [*former] husband.
3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but 
if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
5 For 
when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

~11/27/2019: from "The Satanic Cult of American Evangelical 'christianity'"

Main-line, denominational, main-stream, American, "evangelical christianity" is truly a Satanic Cult.  What other way is there to describe a dead religion which views our loving, Heavenly Father as a "great red dragon" or "Pharaoh" in heaven; and by default, separate from us here on earth?  American "christianity" is all about a Pharaoh-slave relationship; but not a Father-Son relationship, much less... fellowship.  Their famous preachers... to whom The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ refers as "the great men of the earth"... will even say, "Grace is not giving you permission to break the rules; Grace is empowering you to keep the rules," are deluded themselves and have made a killing by marketing and merchandising their own lies and deceptions through multitudes of books, CDs, DVDs and so-called "christian movies".



So, how can the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus... which has made us free from the [*Moses'] law of sin and death (because JESUS singlehandedly fulfilled it, thus terminating it and rendering its influence over us completely obsolete)... all of the sudden, now be empowering us (once again) to "keep all of the rules"??  What a ginormous, steaming-hot pile of shit!!  And, I guess Apostle Paul must have been stuttering when he said, 
"For in that he [*Christ, with all of us together in Him] died, he [and "we"] died [simultaneously] unto sin once: but in that he [*and "we"] liveth, he [*and "we"] liveth unto God.  Likewise reckon ye [*or simply, "consider"] also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord... yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.  For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. [Romans 6: 10, 11, 13b, 14 (KJV)]"



So, if we are "not under the Law of Moses," but "under Grace [a completely different and diametrically opposite kind of 'law']"; then would someone please be so kind as to inform this ignoramus (who is writing this current piece) just how in the hell... and why the hell... Grace would be empowering us to keep a law that we are no longer under, a law that Jesus Himself completely fulfilled, took out of the way and nailed to His Cross?  Why would Grace be empowering us to "go back" and attempt to "keep all of the rules" that applied to the Old Man who no longer exists; "all of the rules" which portrayed our loving, Heavenly Father as a "great red dragon" or "Pharaoh" in heaven... versus, the Lamb that He truly is??  The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ is "spot on" when giving the name of the Harlot Church in these days, calling her, "Babylon".  Main-line, denominational, main-stream, American, "evangelical christianity" is truly a Satanic Cult!  Her name, "Babylon," signifies both Confusion and Mixture.  She is the confusion and mixture of Moses + Jesus, Law + Grace, Old Testament + New Testament, the Law of Sin and Death + the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus, Old Man + New Man, Flesh + Spirit... etc., etc., etc...  But, "God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. [1 Corinthians 14: 33 (KJV)]"       



Romans 10: 4-7 (KJV)

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.
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:)
7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)



Revelation 18: 20-24 (KJV)

20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
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 was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.



Colossians 2: 9-14 (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, 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;
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

To the modern-day "evangelical christian," "prayer" is become an idol, a false god in which they trust; but we are not going to "find the Lord" in prayer, we are going to discover our Heavenly Father... exactly where He says He has always been... in us.
 


John 14: 19, 20 (KJV)

19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: 
because I live, ye shall live also.
20 
At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.



2 Corinthians 6: 16-18 (KJV)

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? 
for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
18 
And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.



2 Corinthians 13: 3-6, 14 (KJV)

Since ye seek a proof of 
Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.
4 For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, 
but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.
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?
6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.
14 
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.

The husband is just as responsible for and accountable to submitting himself unto the Christ in his wife; as the wife is responsible for and accountable to submitting herself unto the Christ in her husband... even as all of the Individual Members of the Body of Christ are responsible for and accountable to submitting themselves unto the Christ in one another.  Yet, the fact of the matter is: we refuse to yield unto one another, much less merge with one another.  Most seem more interested in building and preserving their own kingdom... which bears their own name.



Ephesians 5: 21-28 (KJV)

21 
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, 
as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore 
as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to [*the Christ in...] their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love [*the Christ in...] your wives, 
even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28 
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

~11/20/2019: "Divorced?"

Divorced?  You are free to remarry, as there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus; only let it be after the Spirit's leading, after True Love's leading.  The Father loves us, and wants us to be happy...



1 Corinthians 7: 27, 28a (KJV)

27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned...


Romans 8: 1, 2 (KJV)

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

~11/19/2019: "Work in Progress?: You ARE COMPLETE in Him!... Part 2"

"Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.  I give thanks to my God upon all the remembrance of you, always, in every supplication of mine for you all, with joy making the supplication,  for your contribution to the good news from the first day till now, having been confident of this very thing, that He who did begin in you a good work, will perform [it] till a day of Jesus Christ..."  ~Philippians 1: 2-6 (YLT)



Most of modern "church-ianity" misquotes the above passage; using it as a crutch to support the mistaken notion that "we are all a work in progress".  But Apostle Paul does not imply this, at all!  He emphasizes, "...that He who did begin in you a good work, will perform [it] till a day of Jesus Christ."  Have we ever attended a concert of some sort to hear an artist perform pieces of music that were unfinished?  Certainly not.  Why would we pay, and travel somewhere, to witness that mess; when those musical pieces remain "a work in progress" and unsuitable for a live performance?  In context, what Apostle Paul is actually discussing with the Philippian church is his appreciation of their continued financial support of the Gospel that was put in his charge; and in conjunction, how that Gospel has brought them under the influence (or rule) of the inner promptings of the Spirit of Grace who is thereby unleashed through their words and acts of faith, thus "performing" or "confirming" their word with signs and wonders following.  So, the Spirit of Grace brings us under His influence (or rule) and initiates (or begins, prompts) something (a good work), from within; we respond by speaking and acting on all that He is showing us (through faith-words and acts, NOT to be confused with WORKS), then He confirms (or performs) that word... with signs and wonders following, thereby unveiling the manifestation of Jesus Christ in our [a] present day, in and through us!  My, oh my, how we have slandered this and turned it into some sin-conscious, self-absorbed, self-indulgent, narcissistic stairway or ladder to heaven; whereby, we think that we can make ourselves like God or "ascend into His Image & Likeness"... through our effort, our obedience, our performance, our "prophetic processing"!  When all along, what's been needed is the simple understanding of the good work that He initiates or prompts within us, and then performs, by our following after His leading as we yield to: "...only faith activated and energized and expressed and working through love, [Galatians 5: 6 (AMPC)]" and again, "...so speak ye and so do, as [*moving, my own emphasis] about by a law of liberty to be judged [*seen by all, again my own emphasis]... [James 2: 12 (YLT)]"




_______________________________________________

~11/18/2019: "Work in Progress?: You ARE COMPLETE in Him!"


Now for a long season, both The Harlot Church and The World (and this unfortunately, through The Harlot Church's poor example) have bought into the lie that they remain "a work in progress".  But the New Testament reveals, "For in him [*Christ-in-us] dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.  And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power... [Colossians 2: 9, 10 (KJV)]"  "Complete in Him"...  Exactly, where is this "work in progress"?  We still don't know who we are; much less, all that we possess... and have access to... in Him: "For through him [*Christ-in us] we both [*natural Jew & Gentile, there is no difference] have access by one Spirit unto the Father... [Ephesians 2: 18 (KJV)]"  This is because we remain ignorant of... and in many cases, even continue to run from, and turn a deaf ear toward... the Message of the Cross; which is The Only Word that is of power to reveal these things.  We never seem to want to sit under the preaching of the Cross of Christ, long enough for it to take root; for us to become rooted and grounded, even built up, in Him.  Why is it that we continue to search for "preachers," "teachers" and "teachings" that will only tell us what we want to hear; what we have already decided in our own minds to be true?  "You are complete in Him..."  The only "process" that remains is the discovery process... and this, through prayer in the Spirit... of our Father's staggering, Already-Redemptive Reality that is in Christ Jesus!



Hebrews 7: 11-14, 19 (KJV)

11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that 
another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
12 
For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
14 For it is evident that 
our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
19 
For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.



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.



Jude 1: 17-21 (KJV)

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.
20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, 
praying in the Holy Ghost,
21 
Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Malachi 1: 6; 3: 10 (KJV)

A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: 
if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?
10 
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.



Proverbs 1: 7-19 (KJV)

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
For they shall be 
an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:
13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:
14 
Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:
15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:
16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.
19 
So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.



1 Timothy 6: 5-11 (KJV)

5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that [*financial] gain is [*proof of] godliness [*God's blessing, approval]: from such withdraw thyself.
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 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.

This Sunday; the Sixth Trumpet: fire, jacinth (smoke), and brimstone...



Revelation 9: 16-19 (KJV)

16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.


1 Corinthians 13: 13 (NKJV)

13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these islove.


Hebrews 12: 25-29 (KJV)

25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him [*Moses] that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him [*Jesus Christ] that speaketh from heaven:
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Judas Iscariot wanted to be known as the man who gave Jesus "the push He needed" to prove Himself unto the whole world.  The name "Judas" is a derivative of "Judah": "he shall be praised"; and "Iscariot": "he will be bought".  Thus, Judas would sell himself to garner the praise of men.  How many of us will sell ourselves to receive the praise of men, their approval?  Even more, how many of us will "sell Jesus down the river" to receive the praise of men, their approval?  Do we attempt to "give Jesus that push He needs"... so that He will prove Himself; with the motivation that, people will admire us and seek us out... even worship us?  Even Jesus' own brothers and sisters (in the flesh, Mary's other sons and daughters) were ever-attempting to "push Him forward" for their own benefit: "Now the Jew's feast of tabernacles was at hand.  His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.  For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.  For neither did his brethren believe in him... [John 7: 2-5 (KJV)]"  But despite all of these things, where is the People who deeply, intimately know Jesus... the Very Truth of the Gospel, Himself... and who will, without any sense of fear, ulterior motive or hidden agenda, speak this Truth in love?  It is a very simple thing today, to be hated and branded by both The Harlot Church and The World (there, really, is no difference) as a heretic; all you have to do is love and speak forth the Truth of the Gospel with love unfeigned... no gimmicks, no games... and you will rank very high on their Hit List!
 


Ephesians 4: 11-16 (KJV)

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.



1 John 4: 16-18 (KJV)

16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
18 
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Most of us forget that Judas Iscariot was a political zealot.  Not only so, but Judas, "...was a thief, and had the (*money) bag (*because Jesus did  receive offerings), and bare (*or carried) what was put therein. [John 12: 6 (KJV)]"  Politics and money... in over two-thousand years, not much has changed.  Many might find it "more than very interesting" that Judas Iscariot did not betray Jesus for, merely, thirty pieces of silver; because thirty pieces of silver weren't (really) worth that much, back then.  No, Judas Iscariot set his eyes upon something much more self-indulgent and sinister.  Judas wanted to "set the stage" for Jesus to be able to prove Himself unto the whole world, beginning with the Roman government that was occupying Jerusalem and Israel at the time; toward which said, "Roman government"... the Jews harbored intense hatred.


By doing this, Judas' ambition was to be recognized (eventually) as the one who had the "foresight" to facilitate all of this "change in power" (more like, "overthrow of power"); and therefore, be "crowned" with the "noble honor" and/or recognition of: "Jesus' 'right-hand man'"... who "made it all happen".  [*On a side-note: have we ever heard of the modern-day christian who believes they, or the group to which they are attached, are responsible for "ushering in" the Kingdom of God?  The kingdom of God is already here!!  Are we engaging with it??]  Also, imagine what "a thief who carried the money bag" could do with access to unlimited financial and material resources which would, undoubtedly, "come in" and be at his disposal?  The power, influence, control and authority it would feed into his raging ego... 
over others!



But Judas' plans go way south, once he realizes that the religious hierarchy (the church of the day) never intended to provide a stage for Jesus' validation; but rather, that their aim was simply to apprehend Him, so they could put him to death, because the Father whom He revealed was a direct threat... both to the false image of the God whom they ignorantly worshipped, as well as unto the idolatrous religious system they worked so hard to build around that false image.  This is why Judas throws back the thirty pieces of silver into the Temple, declaring, "I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood."

 


John 12: 4-8 (KJV)

4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him,
5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
This he said, 
not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.


Matthew 27: 3-5 (KJV)

3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
4 Saying, 
I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, 
and went and hanged himself.


Luke 8: 1-3 (NLT)

1 Soon afterward Jesus began a tour of the nearby towns and villages, preaching and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom of God. He took his twelve disciples with him,
2 along with some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases. Among them were Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons;
Joanna, the wife of Chuza, 
Herod's business manager; Susanna; and many others who were contributing from their own resources to support Jesus and his disciples.

Money isn't evil; but our love of it is!  In fact, it is the root of all evil!  Money is what we love (not the Father); and the god whom we prefer most to worship with "our money" is ourselves... the god of "Self".  (Even Atheists have a god: themselves!)  We love money, not only because of the sense of power and control it gives us over "our own lives"; but also, for the illusion of "the freedom" of permission it gives us in attempting to manipulate and control the lives of others.  We will attempt to run and hide from the Presence of God, and from fellowship with one another, as far as "our money" will allow.  And when we run out; then we will simply turn to our parents, extended families, (even) children, our banks, our credit cards, our government, etc., etc...  Capitalism is not the economy or political system of the Kingdom of God; but rather revolves around financial profit, and mainly through the exploitation of people, their needs and their wants.  Democracy is not the government system of the Kingdom of God, either; but rather, gives permission to capitalism to continue its murderous, self-serving practices.  (Financial blessing is the proof, the seal of the Father's approval, right?  Right??)  So, in the end, "The boys, with the most toys, win?"  It is such a gloriously staggering reality that... when, on our one and only, last breath... we lose everything for which we have worked so hard... used, abused, stepped and walked all over so many people to achieve and obtain; and through which, we have become so vainly accustomed to defining ourselves.  So then, when we all stand before the Throne... completely naked before the eyes of the One who already sees all, and knows all; exactly, what account will we give of ourselves, when once He notices how very little... if anything, at all... there is of Himself, in us?
 


1 Timothy 6: 3-10 (KJV)

3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, eventhe 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 rich fall into temptation and a snare, and intomany 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.



1 John 2: 15-17 (KJV)

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, 
the love of the Father is not in him.
16 
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.



2 Corinthians 5: 9-11 (KJV)

9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
10 
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
11 
Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade menbut we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.

Hi Everyone,


Just a reminder to set back our clocks, one hour, this evening.  Tomorrow morning, we continue to look at the Sixth Trumpet, the Third Facet of The Sixth Thunder, as noted by the Apostle John in The Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ.  Hope to see everyone there!  ~J&K
