Hi Everyone,

Below is the link to our new YouTube video, "The Revelation of the Father's Love... Overcomes the 17 Works of the Flesh":

https://youtu.be/Tu1PguRP750

In this video, we discuss how it is NOT by some vague "process," "work in progress," "prophetic processing" or "inner-healing"; but by the revelation of the Love of the Father... unveiled in and through the Grace of the Cross of Jesus Christ... that we effortlessly overcome the works of the flesh.  Toward the end, John also connects some of the Old Testament imagery of the Brazen Laver, or Brazen Sea, with that notorious Lake of Fire mentioned in The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.  It is NOT what most think!:-)  Hope you enjoy!  Love & blessings...

Hi Everyone,

Here is the link to our latest YouTube video, "7 Heads, 10 Horns, 17 Crowns... and NO EYES":

https://youtu.be/SIoAneg38mA


In this video, we discuss the blindness or ignorance of the anti-Christ spirit in regard to the revelation of God's righteousness in Christ Jesus.  We contrast the Beast having seven heads, ten horns and NO EYES; with the Lamb (God's Righteousness in Christ Jesus, and those who have submitted to God's Righteousness in Christ Jesus by faith) having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the Seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth (the earthen vessels of our physical bodies).

Hi Everyone,

Here is the link to our latest video, titled, "The Beast Fears, Wants to Please... its Pharaoh-Father".


https://youtu.be/KPsg5F2FsJI


In this video, John talks about the combined seventeen crowns which are on the seven heads of the Dragon (Pharaoh), and on the ten horns of the Beast; showing how these relate to the seventeen specific works of the flesh mentioned by Apostle Paul in The Book of Galatians, chapter five.  There is also discussion about the general, yet mysterious, "eighteenth work of the flesh" called, "and such like".  Hope you enjoy!

Hi Everyone,

Here is the link to our new YouTube video: "Our Father is a Lamb, not a Dragon or Pharaoh in Heaven"...

https://youtu.be/Xfh303O9HHA

In this video, we continue to discuss the peculiar relationship linking the Great Red Dragon (of Revelation 12) and the Beast (of Revelation 13) to the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (the "type" and foreshadowing of Moses' Law).  Hope you all enjoy!  Love and blessings...  ~J&K

"...And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme... his tabernacle... [Revelation 13: 6 (KJV)]"  The Beast in the Older Prodigal Son blasphemes his Father's Tabernacle; sees no need to "enter in"-to relationship, and fellowship with the Body of his brethren... "And he was angry, and would not go in, [Luke 15: 28 (KJV)]"... because he is self-righteous, "already has God," and no one else is good enough for his own presence or company.  And yet...


1 Corinthians 12: 7-27 (KJV)
7 ...the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
14 For the body is not one member, but many.
15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?
20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

Elder blasphemes Father's mercy, grace...


Luke 15: 25-30 (KJV)
25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.

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

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

Exodus 34: 5-7 (KJV)
5 And the Lord descended in the cloud, and stood with him [*Moses] there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord.
6 And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed,The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,
Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

"And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.  And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.  And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased, and said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?"  ~Mathew 21: 12-16 (KJV)


In general, we have traded prayer (most intimate heart-fellowship with God) and the power of God for an intellectual gospel; full of man's inflated self-opinions, ideas and attempts, through some "divine process," to make himself like God... along with the lust for monetary power, to achieve and maintain financial and outward "success" in the eyes of men.  Yet, the Gospel is supposed to be about Redemption, the Love of our Father, and about Life from the dead (or Christ's Resurrection Life); not in some distant future, but right here and now...and most importantly,in... through... usWe believe more in a Led Zeppelin "stairway to heaven" than we believe and rest in our co-crucifixion, co-death, co-burial, co-quickening, co-resurrection, co-ascension and co-glorification...in, and together with Christ.  There are Two Main Schools of Self-Righteousness: 1. the Led Zeppelin "stairway to heaven"; and, 2. the Rolling Stones' "start (more like, 'work') me up."  Apostle Paul denouncesboth:"Say notin thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) OR, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)" "Who shall ascend into heaven?" is the mentality of applying the correct "obedience"-steps, applications, "patterns," procedures, formulas, outlines, equations or sequences of steps to achieve God-likeness ("christian" book storesare full of this crap!).  "Who shall descend into the deep?" is the mentality that we have to "work up" or "start up" the Anointing or the power of God (again,"christian" book storesare full of this crap!).  Turn up the praise and worship volume to "11".  Pray "louder and harder".  Fast and starve yourself "longer and harder".  Hey, maybe even "cut ourselves" as we jump up and down on the "altar," begging for Baal to hear us and "answer by fire"...

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


Anti-Christ promotes its own name (hence, "the name of blasphemy"); is a self-promoting spirit of mind, or attitude of heart.  Whether knowingly or unknowingly, when we seek to magnify ourselves or to exalt our own name, we "blaspheme" or "diminish" the Name of Christ.  Self-righteousness always operates this way, and self-promoting spirits seek the company of other self-promoting spirits; to take advantage of one another's "contacts," to "get in" with "the right people".  Anti-Christ is not so much interested in the Pure Truth of the Gospel; but in saying "the right things" unto "the right people," in order to "get in" with the highly esteemed (in men's eyes) for personal gain or advantage. There is no genuine love of God in any of this!  Jesus rebukes this mentality, while speaking with the Jews who sought to kill him: "I receive not honour from men. But I know you, thatye have not the love of God in you.  I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not:if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.  How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? [John 5: 41-44 (KJV)]"  The same can be said of the Older Prodigal Son.  The Older Prodigal Son blasphemes his own father's name (nature), expecting his father to reward him for his obedience and punish his Younger Prodigal Brother for his disobedience; because the Older Prodigal perceives his father as a Dragon-Pharaoh, and himself and his younger brother as being no different than the household servants or hired help...

"To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: but unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; but glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: for there is no respect of persons with God."  ~Romans 2: 7-11 (KJV)

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


It is not the anti-Christ who is responsible for "The Great Tribulation"; but rather, the Unveiling of Christ... within a people... that triggers ("a") Great Tribulation.  In fact, there is no mention in the Scriptures (whatsoever) of any such thing as "The Great Tribulation," as some "end-time event".  However, the "appearing of Christ" in the Younger Prodigal Son triggers a Great Tribulation in the Older Prodigal Son; because the Unveiling, or Apocalypse (Greek ~ "Apokalupsis"), or Revelation of Christ in the Younger Prodigal Son exposes the self-righteousness... along with, the Beast... in the Older Prodigal Son.  It also reveals the lack of fellowship and intimate knowledge that the Older Prodigal has, of his own Father; in perceiving Him as a Great Fiery Dragon-Pharaoh, instead of as a Lamb.  In the Greek, and throughout the New Testament, the word used for "tribulation" is "thlipsis": meaning,"to pressure, afflict, affliction, anguish, burdened, persecution,trouble;to crowd,narrow, throng." As Christ manifests within a people, or in any person, His Apocalypse will pressure, trouble, crowd, afflict and narrow othersinto a place; not only of exposure of all that is kept secret within their hearts, but also of repentance:"...in the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel. [Romans 2: 16 (KJV)]"  You mean, "Christ in you" will pressure or "turn up the heat" in others to make a decision as to whom they are going to serve; whether themselves, or God?  Yes.  Accordingly, the Unveiling of the Mystery will also bring to light the righteousness in which we trust; whether it be our own, or else God's righteousness in Christ.

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


Opening his mouth in blasphemy against his father... to blaspheme his name (nature), and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven; is precisely what the Older Prodigal Son does, once his father confronts him about his Younger Prodigal Brother.  Yes, Divine Love can be highly confrontational, at times!  When we realize that The Parable of the Two Prodigal Sonsis another way of stating The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, and that Jesus speaks this parable unto the Jews under the Old Covenant (before the Cross) and referencingthe Old Testament Tabernacle; the Truth of it all really "pops," and we can see that the father confronts the Older Prodigal in the Outer Court... near the Brazen Laver, or Brazen Sea, or Lake of Fire.  Remember, past the Outer Court there was the Tabernacle (Tent) of the Congregation; which was dividedinto two parts underneath the Tent covering: 1. the Holy Place; and, 2. the Most Holy Place.  The "forty-two months" was the length of Jesus' earthly ministry to fulfill the Law & the Prophets (Moses & Elijah); which He did in stunning fashion, culminating in His (and our) death (together in Him) on the Cross of Calvary.  But "42-months" also signifies a Divine Identification, through revelation of the Gospel.  Until there is a "Bride," or a "Corporate Son," who identifies fully with their crucifixion, death and burial in Him (aka: they have "lost" their earthly identity and natural name, or "surrendered their rights to themselves" and their own brand of self-righteousness); and thus becomes willing to receive, by Grace, the Divine Inheritance of Resurrection Life, the Beast in the Older Prodigal Son (today) will continue to open his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.  The Older Prodigal will continue to misrepresent the Father; both in the eyes of the Father's own household, and in the eyes of the whole world.


______________________________________________________________________________________________________

~03/07/2018

Somehow, we have forgotten all about the Free Gift, that is by Grace: Righteousness.  The Righteousness of God is a Free Gift; we cannot earn it or achieve it, much less do anything to "maintain" it.  The Righteousness of God is a divine revelation.  The Righteousness of God is already extended unto... has already come upon... all men, showing that all men are unconditionally loved and accepted (completely free to "approach the Throne"); just like the Golden Scepter of King Ahasuerus (in The Book of Esther) indicates.  Yet, like Grace, Righteousness must be received; then its benefits (Grace) can be enjoyed.  And herein lies the difference between the Two Prodigal Sons; the Younger has come to the end of himself, is donetaking his "cues" from andtrying to measure up to (and "maintain") the Image of the Beast (false image, or standard, of self-righteousness) which the Older Prodigal has been portraying, or projecting, all along.  The Younger Prodigal is worn out (that's a very good thing!) simply willing to receive or accept all that is already his, or to "possess the kingdom," through his Father's love, mercy and grace.  So where is the long, drawn-out "prophetic processing," or "work in progress," or "inner-healing," or "climbing the stairway to heaven to achieve perfection"?  All these things indicate that we have not submitted ourselves unto His Righteousness; that we remain, either, ignorant of orunwilling to accept the Free Gift of His Righteousness as our own.  They are proof that we are the ones who are still trying to control (manipulate), and maintain control (through fear, superstition)... both, our own lives andthe lives of everyone around us; even believing we can use "prayer" as a tool to assist us, as an "implement" to "get the job done".


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

Daniel 7: 21-26 (KJV)
21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;[*see Revelation 13: 7, above...]
22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High;and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth,which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
25 And he shall speak great words against the most High[*think of the Older Prodigal],and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his handuntil a time and times and the dividing of time [*this is the "42 months" of Revelation 13: 5...].
26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.

Romans 5: 15-18 (KJV)
15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead,much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so isthe gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation,butthe free giftis of many offences unto justification.
17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one;much morethey which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousnessshall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation;even so by the righteousness of onethe free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

~03/05/2018

Few have realized, much less considered, the Beast resident within the Older Prodigal Son; and (because he has not received the Free Gift of Righteousness through his Father's Grace) just how much that Older Prodigal Son has been blaspheming his own Father... just how much that Older Prodigal has been playing the False Prophet, regarding his own Father... both in the eyes of the Father's house, and in the eyes of the whole world.


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

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

Son's Grace reveals Father's heart, Father's kind of love; Grace is not part of the Gospel, Grace isthe Gospel...


Galatians 1: 6-9 (KJV)
6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed fromhim that called youinto the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you,and would pervertthe gospel [*Grace] of Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven,preachany other gospelunto you than that which we have preached unto you,let him be accursed.
9 As we said before,so say I nowagain, if any man preachany other gospelunto you than that ye have received,let him be accursed.

Matthew 11: 25-30 (KJV)
25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O(1)Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
26 Even so,(2)Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
27 All things are delivered unto me of my(3)Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the(4)Father; neither knoweth any man the(5)Father,save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest[*Christ (Son's Grace,5) will show us the Father.  Re-read verses 25-27, above...]
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:andye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke[*that of a Son]is easy, and my burden[*that of a Son]is light.

Luke 15: 20 (KJV)
20 Andhe[*the Younger Prodigal]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.

Joseph (type of Christ) reveals Father's Grace(5) unto, and upon Benjamin; Jesus reveals a Father who takes five(5) Grace-Actions toward Younger Prodigal Son, while Younger Prodigal Son simply stands and receives...


Genesis 43: 29 (KJV)
29 And he [*Joseph] lifted up his eyes,and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother's son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom ye spake unto me? And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son.

Luke 15: 20 (KJV)
20 And he [*the Younger Prodigal] 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.

Benjamin receives Grace(5) from Joseph (type of Christ); Benjamin Generation will unveil "Father," Warfare Generation on way out...


Genesis 43: 33, 34 (KJV)
33 Andthey[*the 11 sons of Israel]sat beforehim [*Joseph], the firstborn according to his birthright, and the youngest according to his youth: and the men marvelled one at another.
34And he took and sent messes unto them from before him:but Benjamin's mess was five times so much as any of their's. And they drank, and were merry with him.

Genesis 45: 21b, 22 (KJV)
21 ...and Joseph gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way.
22 To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment;but to Benjamin he gavethree hundred pieces of silver, andfive changes of raiment.

Benjamin, twelfth son of Israel: "son of the right hand."


Luke 15: 11-32 (KJV)
11 And he said, A certain man had two sons:
12 And the younger of them said to his(1)father, (2)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(3)father'shave bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18 I will arise and go to my(4)father, and will say unto him,(5)Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
20 And he arose, and came to his(6)father. But when he was yet a great way off, his(7)fathersaw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
21 And the son said unto him,(8)Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
22 But the(9)fathersaid to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
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(10)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(11)father out, and intreated him.
29 And he answering said to his(12)father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.
32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

"Father," mentioned twelve times... apostolic; Benjamin, twelfth son of Israel.


Luke 15: 11-32 (KJV)
11 And he said, A certain man had two sons:
12 And the younger of them said to his(1)father, (2)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(3)father'shave bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18 I will arise and go to my(4)father, and will say unto him,(5)Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
20 And he arose, and came to his(6)father. But when he was yet a great way off, his(7)fathersaw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
21 And the son said unto him,(8)Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
22 But the(9)fathersaid to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
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(10)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(11)father out, and intreated him.

30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.
32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

"...because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.  But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: whereunto he called you by our gospel,to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ."  ~2 Thessalonians 2: 10b-14 (KJV)

"...and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast down.  And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression,and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered."  ~Daniel 8: 10b-12 (KJV)


It is absolutely possible to cast down the Truth to the ground, trample all over it...and prosper, at the same time.  Isaiah cried in his day,"...for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.  Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey,"and Jeremiah,"...truth is perished."  Salvation from the corruption of unrighteousness, or self-righteousness, has two facets: both sanctification of the Spirit, and belief of the Truth.  Many today are "in love with 'love,'" or their own idea of "love"; but are we receiving the love of the Truth?  If we don't love the Truth, then what good will our being "in love with 'love'" do; except fabricate a very deeply, disturbed form of self-righteousness, around which people will feel as if they need to walk on eggshells so as not to offend our warped brand of righteousness and false holiness?  If we don't love the Truth, then doesn't that make us liars?  The self-righteous are offended at, and by, everything; including the Truth of the Father... His love, mercy and grace.  But the Psalmist writes,"Great peace have they whichlove thy law [*the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus]:and nothing shall offend them." Most of main-line, denominational, mass-marketed christianity or "church-ianity" is nothing more than "self-help guru," "life-coach," "motivational speaker"-oriented fluff, pomp and circumstance which caters to people's egos.  Or, as I like to call it...crap.  It is full of artificial, surface-level or superficial application-remedies that emphasize the polishing of the outward show or behavior modification; and no wonder because now, for over two-thousand years, the House of Prayer has been the House of Merchandise.  Man still looks on the outward appearance, and views financial gain or prosperity as the stamp of God's approval and blessing; while the Lord still looks on the heart, and is offering humanity Resurrection Life from the dead... in our mortal flesh, in our living bodies.

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

"And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him. And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: but as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf."  ~Luke 15: 28-30 (KJV)

"The older brother was angry and wouldn't go in. His father came out and begged him, but he replied, 'All these years I've slaved for you and never once refused to do a single thing you told me to. And in all that time you never gave me even one young goat for a feast with my friends. Yet when this son of yours comes back after squandering your money on prostitutes, you celebrate by killing the fattened calf!'..."  ~Luke 15: 28-30 (NLT)


"...a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies."  The Greek word for "great" is "megas," meaning: "big, fearful, exceedingly great, greatest; high, large, loud, mighty, to be sore afraid of, strong or strength to infinity or to the infinite degree (Strong's Concordance)."  The Greek word for "things" is "autos," meaning: "a baffling, backward wind; or self (Strong's)."  The Greek word for "blasphemies" is "blasphemia," meaning: "vilification (especially against God), evil speaking, railing; to blame, condemn, diminish (Strong's Concordance & Noah Webster 1828 Edition of The American Dictionary of The English Language)."  So, the anti-Christ spirit of mind or attitude of heart... aka, "the Beast"... enjoys talking about itself, magnifying itself, exalting its own name; and consequently in the process, diminishes God and/or Christ's Finished Work.  Now compare this to what King David pens in Psalm 34"O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together."  The Older Prodigal Son vilifies, blames his own father (*remember Adam in the Garden of Eden...) for his not being able to partake of the fatted calf or ox; as if his father is holding back anything from either of his two sons!  Rather, it is what the Older Prodigal (like many of us) is holding onto; which is preventing him from seeing and enjoying all that is already his, all that his father has already freely provided.  Nothing could better describe this Older Prodigal than the Greek word "autos": a self-absorbed, baffling and backward wind.  In The King James Version of Luke 15: 28-30, the Older Prodigal emphasizes "I," or "me," or "my," a total of five (5) times.  "5" is the Biblical number for grace; therefore, the Older Prodigal's spirit is both a direct affront to true grace, and anti-Christ.

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

"And he [*the Older Prodigal] was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out [*out of the Tent, or Tabernacle of the Congregation]and intreated [*begged] him. And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: but as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf."  ~Luke 15: 28-30 (KJV)


"And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them [*really, the Younger Prodigal Brother who has "returned home"] that dwell in heaven..."  This is precisely what the Older Prodigal does, when the Father "comes out" of the Tent, or Tabernacle of the Congregation, and confronts him about his unwillingness  to "go in" the Tent, or Tabernacle.  And until this very day, true to form and most of the time, Self-Righteousness'... the Beast's... initial reaction to discovering the Father's heart will be ANGER; followed by "a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies"... about itself.  Why?  Because Self-Righteousness, or the Beast (Man of Sin)... within people... has worked very hard at establishing both its own brand of righteousness; as well as, the false identity (in the eyes of men) which revolves around that brand of righteousness, and which seeks... even craves... the praise, approval, affirmation, validation or confirmation of mere, mortal men.  "The anti-Christ-," or "the self-righteous-," or "the Man of Sin-," or "the Beast-"... "spirit of mind" or "attitude of heart" within people... is a self-promoting spirit; because it lacks the revelation of Christ's Grace (is either ignorant of... or, has completely lost sight of... and in some cases, even grown to despise... its Mother, who is not initially mentioned in The Parable of the Two Prodigal Sons).  True Grace is of genuine power to reveal the Father's heart, the Love of God; both, toward one's self, and toward one another... as brethren, as family.

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick announcement that our February 2018, Virginia Home Fellowship Group is coming up next Saturday, February 24th at a new time: from 1PM - 4PM.  The Virginia gatherings are held in the home of our dear sister and friend, Jackie Lonto.  The address of the meetings: 20903 Runnymeade Terrace, #207, Ashburn, VA 20147.  The Ashburn meetings include a simple, potluck lunch.  If you come, bring something you like, and we will all share together in whatever is laid out.  For any additional info, please contact Jackie @ (978) 598-3210.  We look forward to seeing everyone who can make it unto this anointed gathering... for a wonderful time of fellowship and fresh revelation in the presence of the Lord!  Love & blessings...  ~J&K

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

"And he [*the Older Prodigal] was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him. And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends..."  ~Luke 15: 28, 29 (KJV)


When the Older Prodigal's Father "comes out," it is... actually... "out of" the Tabernacle known as the Tent of the Congregation, which houses the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place.  (*Remember: Jesus is speaking unto the Jews, while still under the Old Covenant or Law of Moses.  This is before the Cross of Calvary.)  The Father meets his Older Prodigal in the Outer Court, containing both the Brazen Altar (type of the Cross) and Brazen Sea (Brazen Laver or "Lake of Fire").  The Father pleads with, begs his Older Prodigal to "come into the Tent," and fellowship with his own brother who has both returned and received the Father's love, mercy and grace.  However, the Older Prodigal knows that there is something, unto which, he must first submit himself, before entering into that Tent and "joining the party": he must wash in the Brazen Sea (Brazen Laver or "Lake of Fire") and "change his garments"... he must allow for that "fire water" or "revelatory word" to alter his "spirit of mind," "attitude of heart," or "how he perceives things (*especially himself, in relationship to his own, Younger Prodigal Brother)".  Remember, the Older Prodigal has chosen to build relationships, and fellowship, with the household servants or hired help, and learns to adopt their "mentality".  He has just come from the field with those same servants, sweaty, smelly; and with dirty, perspiration-spotted and soaked clothes.  The Brazen Sea or Lake of Fire contains water which flowed out of the Rock (Christ's death), whom Moses struck.  That water is the washing of regeneration which imparts the revelation of our true heavenly identity in our Father's sight.  Until this very day, true to form and most of the time, Self-Righteousness'... the Beast's... initial reaction to discovering the Father's heart will be ANGER, followed by a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies.

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


The "politically correct, can't-say-anything-to-offend-anyone-and/or-possibly-hurt-anyone's-feelings-'gospel'"... is not the Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ; because the true Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ confronts the self-righteousness (unrighteousness)  of Man, the self-righteousness (unrighteousness) in people, the self-righteousness (unrighteousness) in which people trust.  Apostle Paul says it best: "For therein [*the Gospel of Christ] is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness [*self-righteousness] of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness [*self-righteousness]..."  If we don't think that confronting self-righteousness is like poking a hornet's nest, then we are extremely naive.  Apostle Paul was constantly on the run, for his life; because his Gospel confronted the self-righteousness based on keeping the dead letter of Moses' Law.  Self-righteousness is true unrighteousness.  Through lavishly bestowing upon His Younger Prodigal Son the best robe, a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet; the Father, in that Son, confronts and provokes the self-righteousness hidden, or restrained, within His Older Prodigal Son.  In The Revelation, Apostle John describes this "Beast"... this anti-Christ (self-righteous or unrighteous) spirit of mind and/or attitude of heart... to a "T":  "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven."  This is precisely what the Older Prodigal does... how the Older Prodigal reacts, toward his own Father... when (once) his Father confronts him about his attitude.  Hear his mouth... "the mouth"... speaking great things and blasphemies: "Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: but as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf..."

"...and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast [*who is like unto ME]? who is able to make war with him [*who is as 'right with God,' as I AM?]And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies..."  ~Revelation 13: 4, 5 (KJV)

"My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: and he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world."  ~1 John 2: 1, 2 (KJV)

"This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. These things command and teach."  ~1 Timothy 4: 9-11 (KJV)


The pride of self-righteousness.  Genuine unrighteousness is, actually, self-righteousness.  Self-righteousness is the root of all different kinds of manifestations of unrighteousness.  The Harlot Church loves her labels and stereotypes she places upon people, who have not done (at least, according to her own estimation) all that she has done... all that she perceives her Heavenly Pharaoh-Dragon-Father has required of her to do... in order to be deemed as "righteous" in his sight.  So, she looks down her racist, bigoted, denominational, condescending nose and proclaims: "saved" versus "unsaved," "righteous" versus "unrighteous," "sanctified" versus "unsanctified," "holy" versus "unholy"... all because, "'They' have done, or have not done, as I have done; in making and keeping my Heavenly Pharaoh-Dragon-Father happy with me!"  "But Brother, we are supposed to put a difference between the holy and the profane, and between the clean and the unclean!"  We are, are we?  I beg to differ.  The preaching of the pure, and true, Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ will accomplish that very thing, and with Utmost Mercy & Grace.  We forget what Apostle Peter learned upon the housetop in Joppa ( a "type" of the Feast of Tabernacles, or the Feast of the Father): "What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common (unclean or unholy)."  Jesus Christ's own blood has cleansed the whole world, and everyone born into it!  No one was excluded, outside of His Triumphant Sacrifice.  Are we "right with God" because we... prayed some "sinner's prayer"...? got dunked (baptized) in H2O...? speak in other tongues...? are of the "right ethnicity"...? are of the "correct nationality"...? go to church on Sunday...? go to church on Saturday...? never cuss or use dirty language, vulgarity...? have no tattoos...? never drink wine, beer or whiskey...? don't eat meat...? fast from food and drink, regularly...? abstain from sex with our spouses?  If we think that we are "right with God" or even "closer to God" because of these things, and/or any other possible combination of a multitude of other things, then we are self-righteous and members of a Harlot.  We are not interested in seeing people discover the Father's heart, but in brain-washing them to become, look and behave just like us!

"And they [*the self-righteous] worshipped the dragon [*their perverted perception of the Heavenly Father, or the False Image of how they perceive the Heavenly Father without... or apart from... the Revelation of Jesus Christ] which gave power [*rise] unto the beast [*the anti-Christ spirit of mind or attitude of heart, or 'The Man of Sin,' within themselves]: and they worshipped the beast [*they really worship themselves, their own self-righteousness which revolves around their own perceived ability to 'please God'], saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months [*until the Unveiling or Appearing, or Coming of Christ, IN a Peculiar People known as The Bride]."  ~Revelation 13: 4, 5 (KJV)


We all can become self-righteous about a great many things, if we are not careful.  There is, at times, such a subtle difference between the "simplicity" that is in Christ, versus that same old spirit of bondage "again" to fear... really, the spirit of self-righteousness found under Moses' Law.  This is why Apostle Paul encourages us not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together; so that we would "consider" one another (*imagine that!... christians actually being considerate of one another... caring about one another and one another's walk), like iron sharpening iron, and provoke one another unto love and good (Spirit-led, faith-filled) works.  Under Moses' Law or the Dead Letter, or any other of its various sibling-forms, our Heavenly Father will be perceived as a Great Red ("Fiery") Dragon, or Heavenly "Pharaoh"; who rewards and protects us because of our obedience or performance, and who punishes us for our disobedience.  Please note: there is no Divine Love in any of that...  In our last e-mail, we mentioned how even christianity today has made an idol out of... a separatist and dead religion out of... "hearing God's voice".  We have turned this whole "hearing from God"-thing into, yet, another form of Moses' Law; and the proof is in our lack of love toward... our lack of desire to fellowship with... one another.  The Older Prodigal "hears the Father's voice"; has based his own righteousness on obeying that alleged, "still, small voice."  But where is the same love of his father in his own heart, toward his own brother?  We can hear our Heavenly Father's voice, but have not a clue to His Heart; and be totally clueless to all that His Heart is after.  Speaking of "the still, small voice"...  No one ever seems to mention why... Elijah hears a still, small voice in the Cave at Horeb.  Because rather than pursuing and loving the seven thousand of his brethren who had not bowed the knee to Baal; Elijah forsook the assembling of himself with his brethren and, ironically, found himself back in the same Cave where Moses received the Law, stewing in the misery of his own self-pity and the wounded pride of his own self-righteousness.  So "the voice" became "still"... "small".

"Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: 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: 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.  But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.  Nevertheless when it [*the heart] shall turn [*repent] to the Lord [*the Spirit of the letter], the vail shall be taken away.  Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.  But we all [*compared to Israel with Moses], 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; but have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.  But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.  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."  ~2 Corinthians 3: 12-18; 4: 1-7 (KJV)
 

Have you ever noticed that most christians who claim to be "hearing from God" only ever seem to have God "telling them to do" things which revolve around their own convenience, amusement, entertainment and financial comfortability; meaning, no risk of faith?  Christianity today has made and idol out of... a separatist and dead religion out of... "hearing God's voice".  But there is something much, much greater than "hearing from God": ...gazing into, and ever-beholding the Light of the Knowledge of the Glory of God in the Face of Jesus Christ.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words (I think more); and this is the main difference between the Old Testament and New Testament.  The Old Covenant is The Hearer's Covenant, the slave's or servant's covenant.  The New Covenant is The Seer's Covenant, the Son's covenant.  (*remember the difference between the Two Prodigal Sons, at the end of Jesus' parable...)  Why is the Old Covenant known as The Hearer's Covenant?  Israel actually requested that Covenant, rather than answering the Divine Invitation to behold... Face-to-Face... the Glory of the God of their Fathers.  They demanded something far inferior, but that would further enable them to continue with the false identity with which they had grown so familiar, for over 400 years; and that resembled the kind of relationship they were used to experiencing, under Pharaoh's control... even though it was completely abusive.  In Egypt, the first day that a natural Jew "beheld the face of Pharaoh"... was the last day that natural Jew breathed on the earth.  Pharaoh mediated, regulated, his abuse through task-masters who "spoke to the Jews" on Pharaoh's behalf.  The Jew never saw Pharaoh's face, but only "heard Pharaoh's voice" (*remember the Older Prodigal); as well as "the voice" of those who mimicked "their Pharaoh's voice".  Today, the church is settling for, yet again, another "revelation of God," which is only "in part"; and we are taking and making "that which is in part" into "the whole thing".  And yet, it is not "the whole thing" but "that which is in part".  Our Heavenly Father is now our Heavenly Dragon-Pharaoh (as the Dragon is the symbol for Pharaoh); whose "voice" we love "to hear," and whose "face" we cannot see.  And any task-master... modern-day pastors, leaders and famous, christian celebrity-preachers... who "mimic that voice," we will gladly help them to "rise and build" their Pyramids (with stained glass and steeples), lest we be "displeasing unto God (our Heavenly Dragon-Pharaoh-Father)."

The difference between the Legal Transaction of all Jesus accomplished on the Cross, versus our present-day and Experiential Reality; is that there is, simply, a lack of revelation... or, a lack of revelation knowledge... regarding that Finished Work: "For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?  God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar..."  The thing that we have to get through our (sometimes thick...) heads, or wrap our heads around, is that our faith (or believing) does not save us; God's Faith at work, in and through the Cross of Jesus Christ, has already...  legally... saved us all (including all Lesbians, Gays, Bi-Sexuals & Transgenders... and Democrats).  Our believing, if in fact we do believe, is the effortless fruit or by-product generated by the Revelation of God's Faith at work in the Cross of Christ, and all that that Faith has accomplished: "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith..."  Most christians (let alone, people in general) don't realize that the New Covenant is a covenant kept, both solely and exclusively, by God Himself... on both sides.  The Father is the Representative on both heaven's behalf and earth's behalf; which are united and bonded together in the physical body of His Son, Jesus Christ.  It's a Fail-Safe Covenant.  Even as Abram fell asleep in the blood, and was therefore  included effortlessly in the covenant between the Father (Smoking Furnace) and His Word (the Son, Burning Lamp); so too, we all legally died together in the Blood of Christ's own physical body on the Cross... we all have been effortlessly included in Jesus' Triumphant Sacrifice.  What remains?  Where are the Message, and the Messengers, who can lovingly convey the revelation of this Great Mystery & Legal Transaction; which in turn, will open the eyes of people's hearts unto the Father's Reality, and their New Experiential Reality??

"And he [*Melchizedek] brought him [*Abram] forth abroad [*outside his tent], and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars [*name the constellations in order, beginning with Virgo (the Virgin)], if thou be able to number them: and he [*Melchizedek] said unto him [*Abram], So shall thy seed be.  And he [*Abram, effortlessly...] believed in the Lord; and he [*Melchizedek] counted it to him [*Abram] for righteousness."  ~Genesis 15: 5, 6 (KJV)

"And I... I saw..."  ~Revelation 1: 12a (KJV)


The Salvation of God is both a Person and a Revelation.  Yet, after all these centuries, the Church is still portraying salvation unto the world as a "result," or "effect," of something we (and they) "must do"... even, in regard to "our believing," or "praying" some "sinner's prayer," or "confessing Jesus as Lord".  Yes, we have even twisted "faith" or "believing" into something we "must do," in order to "get saved"; therefore, our "believing"... even, our "faith"... has also become a form of "works" or "works-righteousness".  As if we can "work up" faith to "get saved," or to receive anything from our Father!  This is blind nonsense and sheer ignorance of the scriptures.  Most well-meaning christians worship their own will or "will-power," not God; and few know God as, "Abba, Father" and what it means to be a Son.  They'll say, "I have chosen Jesus," or, "I have made a decision for Christ (*as if Christ is incapable of making His own decisions!)," or, "I have decided to 'follow Jesus'."  These things sound good and religious, perhaps even "holy," but they are all "will-worship"; and will-worship is nothing more than witchcraft.  We don't have a great will, to choose; Whom we have is a Great and Marvelous Savior!  But we keep arguing with Christ, Who emphasizes unto us, "Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you..."  We have never put much thought into the scriptures.  Father-Abraham did not... could not... "work up faith" or "choose to believe" or "make a decision for Christ" or "decide to follow Christ".  No, Father-Abraham's faith was the direct and effortless result (*fruit) of the revelation which Melchizedek showed him... of the Finished Work regarding Abraham's Seed (Christ), written in the stars of heaven.  This is why, throughout The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the Divine Invitation is always, "Come and SEE."  Not, "Come and do," or "Come and be a part," or, "Come and sign up," or, "Come and get involved (busy with church 'programs')."  Behavior modification is the adversary (satan) to Divine Revelation.

"Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.  For no man ever yet hated his own fleshbut nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: for we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones." ~Ephesians 5: 1, 2, 29, 30 (KJV)


So, Divine Love is under no obligation?... is completely free from any and all obligations?  Are we serious??  Ask our spouses if they would mind if we slept with someone else tonight; because, we are "under no obligation" to be, only, with them.  Ask someone else if they would mind providing for, and taking care of our children; because we are "under no obligation" to be responsible, and accountable, for who we bring into this world.  Yet, when it comes to one another, as brethren, somehow Divine Love is "under no obligation"... is completely free from any and all obligations.  The Western church "culture" is a self-seeking, self-glorifying, self-gratifying, self-serving culture; in love with entertainment, amusement and the capitalistic idea of outward "prosperity" and/or "success," but with little next to no regard for anyone other than ourselves.  If it is inconvenient for us, then it must not be "grace"... it must be "under the Law".  We have forgotten that True Love is a Sacrifice, and that Faith must be involved.  In his letter to the Ephesians and regarding Christ's Body, Apostle Paul notes two forgotten elements of Divine Love: love "nourishes" and "cherishes".  "Nourishes" means to provide for, and contribute unto the person/s we love; while "cherishes" means to guard or protect the person/s we love.  We claim to love one another.  We say that we love one another.  Then where is the provision for and/or contribution unto one another, and to the genuine needs we each have?  And where is the, actual, protection of one another; to know that we each have one another's back?  We know very little of Divine Love today, because we have yet to possess a bona-fide revelation of our Heavenly Father and His heart.  We are full of scripture (and something else I won't mention:-), even having a scripture for everything, but answers for nothing!  Here is one for all of us self-righteous pricks...  If we claim to know the Father, and that God is Love Himself; while hating and deliberately separating ourselves from one another (all in the name of "grace"... or course), then we are liars.  If we claim to love one another... even saying unto one another that we love one another... while showing no indication of "nourishing" and "cherishing" one another; then likewise, we are liars.  If we do genuinely love one another, and with a pure heart fervently, THEN WE ARE UNDER EVERY OBLIGATION TO NOURISH AND CHERISH ONE ANOTHER; both, TO PROVIDE FOR AND CONTRIBUTE UNTO ONE ANOTHER, AS WELL AS TO GUARD OR PROTECT ONE ANOTHER!  Let's stop perverting the Image of our Heavenly Father's love, in the eyes of the world!  Let's love one another in deed and in truth, not in word only!

Hi Everyone,

Come and join us for a wonderful time of fellowship and fresh revelation, tomorrow morning: Sunday, January 14th at 10AM @ 2025 Noble Street, West Lawn, PA 19609.  In our study of The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ OR The Unveiling of the Great Mystery: "Christ in you, the hope of glory"; we now come unto the Fourth Vial (Bowl), and the Fifth Facet of The Fourth Thunder.  Remember, each of The Seven Thunders (the Fullness of each of the Seven-Fold Manifestations of "Christ-IN-YOU") has Six Facets: the Church, the Seal, the Trumpet, the Angel, the Vial (or Bowl) and the Vial- or Plague-Angel.  7 x 6 = "42," the Bible number signifying Christ's "apokalupsis," or "apocalypse," or "appearing," or "coming," or "manifesting" in a physical body.  In the Light of all that the Holy Apostles and Prophets wrote, OUR BODIES ARE that "PHYSICAL BODY"!  These things seem strange unto the modern-day church "culture" because they are in love with themselves and their skin color, and in love with their money and politicians; and continually seek a "gospel" which will only further enable them to glorify their emotions and feelings, while wallowing around in the misery of their own self-pity regarding their past... which has already been crucified, put to death and buried in Christ!  There will come a day when the Body realizes that death is not our friend, but an enemy of God; and there will be a people who will put death (the Last Enemy) under their feet.  Think about it.  If we have already died together with Christ on the Cross, in the physical body of His own flesh... then why subject ourselves unto a Second Death?  We have already been crucified!  We have already died!  We have already been buried!  When will we let go of all this crap?  We don't need "inner-healing," but a good, swift kick in our self-righteous, self-worshiping, religious asses!  Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!  Love and blessings...


Revelation 16: 8, 9 (KJV)
And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

One of the greatest tragedies within the modern-day "gospel" is the notion that Jesus Christ only died for us.  Although this is true, on a surface level, there is something much deeper to behold.  "For such an high priest  became us," and, "...that if one died for [*as] all, then were all dead  (*when that One Man died for/as all)."  For the skeptics, one need look no further than at the Old Testament sacrifices offered for sin and sins.  The offender/worshiper would bring the required sacrifice, specified under the Law of Moses, unto the priests.  The offender/worshiper, in the presence of the priests, would confess their sin/sins while laying their hands upon the sacrifice being offered; thus transferring their own sin, guilt, shame and condemnation onto the animal.  From that moment forward, in the mind of God, the offender/ worshiper and the sacrifice have now "merged" and become as one and the same; the animal now fully identified as the offender/ worshiper himself or herself.  Then a priest would slay the animal in the presence of the offender/ worshiper, and offer the animal upon the altar; the former offender/worshiper being justified, and freed to return home and back to "normal life".  Apostle Paul became so inwardly identified with his own "co-death," together with Jesus Christ on the Cross; that, at times, the wounds of the Lord Jesus would actually appear or manifest in his mortal flesh.  The Greek word for "marks" is "stigmata,"which means, "to stick or prick; marks incised or punched (for recognition of ownership); scar of service, mark, tattoo or brand used for identification of a slave."  These words of Apostle Paul make much more sense in the light of all we just mentioned here, above: "Paul, a bond-slave of Jesus Christ..."


Mark 14: 46 (KJV)
46 And they laid their hands on him, and took him.

2 Corinthians 5: 13-15 (NASB)
13 For if we are beside ourselves [*insane], it is for God; if we are of sound mind, it is for you.
14 For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died;
15 and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.

Galatians 2: 20; 6: 17, 18 (KJV)
20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks [*"stigmata"] of the Lord Jesus.
18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
