The Function of Gold

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

Sometimes, it is best to get back to some foundational understanding about the current monetary system and where it went astray.  Man’s carnal desire to manipulate and control moved us off the gold standard.  The term “good as gold” was used for U.S. currency since you could exchange paper money for the equivalent value of gold bullion.  The problem for those in power, this fixed relationship kept them from manipulating the economy for their own interests.  Gold reserves can only increase about 2% per year from mining.

Gold has no liability attached to it.  What you see is what you get.  On the other hand, fiat currency has the liabilities of the issuing country attached to it.  If a country increases its money printing by 10% relative to the other countries around the world, their currency will be devalued by 10%.  So, if you live in that country, your savings loses 10% in purchasing power.  If you are a borrower, your debt will be paid back in cheaper currency.  Who are the largest borrowers?  The Federal Governments around the world.  Inflation is not measured by price increases but is defined as the increase in money supply.

Gold is anti-inflationary.  You cannot manipulate its value and you cannot increase its supply by the press of a button.  It provides a fixed measure of value and that is why it has been used time and time again as a nation’s currency.  It provides an inherent stability to the monetary system of the country and the globe.

The Genoa Conference of 1922 (April 10–May 19, 1922) was the cause of the Great Depression.  At this conference representatives of 34 countries convened to discuss the Gold Standard and decided to convert to a “Gold Exchange Standard” which effectively double the money supply.  We then had the bubble of the Roaring 20’s which burst, creating the Great Depression.

This was not enough.  The U.S. government decided to seize the gold held by the public and then immediately devalued the value of the U.S. Dollar.  Executive Order 6102 is an Executive Order signed on April 5, 1933 by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt "forbidding the Hoarding of Gold Coin, Gold Bullion, and Gold Certificates" by U.S. citizens.  Executive Order 6102 required U.S. citizens to deliver on or before May 1, 1933 all but a small amount gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates owned by them to the Federal Reserve, in exchange for $20.67 per troy ounce. Under the Trading With the Enemy Act of October 6, 1917, as amended on March 9, 1933, violation of the order was punishable by fine up to $10,000 ($166,640 if adjusted for inflation as of 2008) or up to ten years in prison, or both.  Once the gold had been confiscated, the value of the Dollar was changed from $20.67 to $35.00 per ounce.  That’s inflation!  Notice how they used another law redefined to fit their purpose and justification for the confiscation.  There are enough laws on the books to just about do anything imaginable.

The price of gold held steady until France decided it wanted to convert its dollars to gold.  On August 15th, 1971, President Richard Nixon ended the Gold Exchange Standard.  This allowed those in power to exert greater control over the economy without regard to retaining “value” for the common man.  This exploitation has continued and allowed unfathomable amounts of money to be created by the issuance of debt and credit.

We are now in a currency bubble and when you are in the middle of a bubble, you don’t know it.  From the inside of the bubble, you don’t see the reflections of light (revelation) defining the bubble’s size.  Only after the bubble bursts does the size and impact get fully revealed.  Light travels about 6 trillion miles in one year.  I suspect Congress will begin to use the term “light years of debt” instead of $60-70 trillion.  Doesn’t 10 to 12 light years of debt sound smaller and less ominous? 

Thank You!

On November 12th, 2009, we revealed the plan to fund a new electro-dermal screening system designed to remove “toxins” from the human body.  As of today we now have enough funds to build the “alpha” test machine.  This phase I device will provide us with the understanding and experience to move toward a compact, inexpensive device with improved accuracy.  Our goal is to build a system that can be used anywhere in the world with minimal training.  We intend to build in “expertise” so that as we receive detailed feedback, the system will improve its focus in the complaint-specific testing protocols thus improving the tester’s ability to isolate the signals associated with the complaint.  For example, if a region has a specific problem with a parasite, you would want each person tested for that parasite.  The parasite might produce different symptoms based on the uniqueness of the individual thus the tester could remove that interference early in the testing.  We would expect the overall health of that region to improve over time.  This would also be true where herbicides and pesticides have been used on farmland and the local population has a higher incidence of sickness and disease.  We believe the impact of this technology could be dramatic.

We believe this pursuit will blossom into a new paradigm for the prevention of sickness and disease.  This methodology adheres to Biblical principles of “removing the leaven” from body.  With over 70,000 chemicals, numerous resistant bacteria and viruses, and other “toxins” invading our bodies, we expect this new system to be helpful in identifying and removing these intruders that have been introduced into the “biosystem”  of the individual. Each person has a specific and unique exposure history.  We believe the generic therapy given to the masses will no longer be acceptable as people understand this technology.

Now with over $30,000 devoted to the project, we can begin.  Yes, there will be more funds required for further development work.  If Our Heavenly Father moves you to send money for this project, please respond.  We believe this technology has the potential of ministering to all 6.5 billion people on earth.  Is there any greater ministry than that?

Once again, Thank You!

Defending a Revelation

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

One day you are minding your own business and Our Heavenly Father drops a revelation into your consciousness.  What do you do?  This revelation is going to change your life, your friends, your financial decisions, and your basic interaction with mankind.  This revelation may usher you out of your local church congregation.  It may impact your relationships that you have developed over decades.  Do you disregard the revelation so as to have minimal impact on your current life’s ambitions and dreams?

Our Creator knows us all too well.  HE gave us the revelation because HE equipped us before we were formed in the womb to embrace the revelation and carry it forward.  He knew at that time that the adversary in whatever form would test us with trials and temptations to validate our commitment to the revelation.  The Apostle Paul lived this reality.  He was at the top of his “game” when suddenly Jesus appeared and gave him a new revelation.  Uh oh!  First, Paul was blinded.

Acts 9:9   And he (Paul) was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.

That made quite a statement to Paul.  Talk about a course correction, Paul’s life changed in a moment.  His training in the opposition’s camp was now going to be used to spread the revelation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  In the following passage, Paul gives an account of the cost of the revelation he received:

2 Corinthians 11:22-33

Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I.

Are they ministers of Christ?–I speak as a fool–I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often.

From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one.

Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep;

in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;

in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness–

besides the other things, what comes upon me daily: my deep concern for all the churches.

Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to stumble, and I do not burn with indignation?

If I must boast, I will boast in the things which concern my infirmity.

The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying.

In Damascus the governor, under Aretas the king, was guarding the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desiring to arrest me;

but I was let down in a basket through a window in the wall, and escaped from his hands.

Over the last year, Our Heavenly Father led me to write a book titled “The Circumcised Heart of Love”.  For the most part, it was quiet while I wrote each chapter.  Once I was ready to prepare the book for publishing, the resistance came.  A blessed sister in Christ was to create the book cover and suddenly, roadblocks cropped up everywhere.  Emergency dentistry and a PC crashing arrived at her doorstep.  After several delays and some intercession, the cover was finished.  The next challenge was to get the book in a publishing format.  During this phase, we have had a number of challenging events to take my focus away from this step.  Within two weeks time, we have had 10-15 events that were various aspects of spiritual warfare.  Fortunately we don’t have a pet or it would have probably passed away during the last two weeks.  The warfare was designed to bring us into submission and despair so that this revelation would not be spread abroad.  Having dealt in spiritual warfare in the past, I was not particularly moved by all of the adversary’s attempts to disrupt the progress.  Am I saying that this book will impact millions?  No.  In fact, I may be the only one it impacts.  Having it published may be a waste of money.  However, just as Paul was led to the utter most parts of the earth and suffered greatly as he spread the Gospel, I am compelled to complete this project as a service to Our Heavenly Father.  I know the revelation needs to come forth and I am called to do my part in planting the seed, no matter how minor it may be.  Revelation is always accompanied by trials and testing so you might as well embrace them.

Mortgage Crisis continues

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

The following graph provides a stark reminder that the worst is ahead and not behind us:



The sub-prime loans will wash out by December 21st, 2012.  Just in time for the Mayan celebration.  Continue the defensive posture necessary to weather the volatility ahead.  Washington has no incentive to provide the raw facts now facing legislators.  Managing perception is their only hope to keep the consumer from totally shutting down discretionary spending.  The following graph provides another view of the relative weakness of sovereign debt:


The fact that the U.S. is even being considered of having vulnerability is new to many of us.  With the advent of the Internet, money will move away from vulnerability much quicker than in times past.  This will reduce the time frame in which a country arrives at a crisis level.  Years turn into months, months turn into days.  Be prepared for “suddenly”.

Darkness of Understanding

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

Ignorance is the state in which one lacks knowledge, is unaware of something or chooses to subjectively ignore information.  This is in contrast to light and revelation.  Darkness first appears in the 2nd verse of the Bible:

Genesis 1:2   And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters

Darkness is not the opposite of light, it is the absence of light, it is nothingness.  Light fills the void of understanding and in Scripture, light or revelation is key to progressing as a pleasing son of Our Heavenly Father.  When a person’s understanding is darkened, he or she is apt to exist in the subterfuge of illusion created in the mind.  This departure from reality can have dire consequences to the individual as well as the loved ones and community in general.  Darkness brings forth gluttony and rebellion.  Today gluttony is known as “addiction”.  Addiction takes on many forms and is best known as drug addiction related to alcohol and pharmaceuticals, and sex.  I would suggest that addiction would also include the quest for money and power and is found in all corners of society.  It is insidious by nature and is as subtle as the serpent itself.  ‘”Addicts” use misrepresentation, subtlety, and manipulation to feed their addiction.  This addiction is centered in the goat-like ego and causes double-mindedness and in turn, instability.  This instability will result in death and destruction thereby leaving in its wake grief and sorrow.

Rebellion is a blatant and defiant act of disobedience.  What always amazes me is when someone openly rejects the GOD of Heaven and Earth as though they have all the revelation and understanding above and beyond everyone else!  This is an act of exalting oneself above the Creator and is the formula for receiving an intense, corrective interview by Our Heavenly Father.  Sustained rebellion is not tolerated in the oneness of the universe that was created in the beginning by the Word of the Lord God Almighty.  King Saul was selected by Our Heavenly Father to rule Israel for a period of time.  However, he became blinded by his own power to the point of rebellion in his calling and anointing; also known as witchcraft:

1Samuel 15:23   For rebellion [is as] the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness [is as] iniquity and idolatry. Because thou (King Saul) hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from [being] king

Rebellion to Divine authority evokes rejection and dismissal of your position or calling.  This is a serious issue for the fruitfulness mandate will be carried out by someone, somehow, but if you fail to bring forth fruit, you will be replaced by one who will.

In Deuteronomy 4:11, the mountain where Moses was to receive revelation from Our Heavenly Father was engulfed in “thick” darkness.  The people had spent the last few hundred years in bondage and had no revelation of Spiritual matters.  Thick darkness separated them from Our Heavenly Father, His Love, and His Law.  His Light was separated from them by thick darkness and they had the inability to see Him.  Only Moses would ascend the mountain and be engulfed in the light and revelation of Our Heavenly Father to the point where his face would shine as an outward sign of receiving the revelation of Our Heavenly Father.

Job 12:22   "He (Our Heavenly Father) reveals mysteries from the darkness And brings the deep darkness into light”

Our focus must be to have the darkness of our understanding replaced with the revelation of the Word of GOD.  Any other pursuit is temporal and will not fill the void where the darkness resides.  Addiction may provide temporary relief only to have its shackles strengthened.  The quest for power and authority even if it is the quest for being one of the “elect” can cause darkness to prevail, being ever so subtle.  Our focus should be reduced to the point of simply having a close relationship with Our Heavenly Father and at His good pleasure, he will exalt us into our calling.  In His Presence is Love and light and there is no darkness of understanding.  The following passage reveals the result of moving into “light” or revelation away from the “darkness of understanding”:

Psalm 112:1-10


Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,

Who delights greatly in His commandments.

His descendants will be mighty on earth;

The generation of the upright will be blessed.

Wealth and riches will be in his house,

And his righteousness endures forever.

Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness;

He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

A good man deals graciously and lends;

He will guide his affairs with discretion.

Surely he will never be shaken;

The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance.

He will not be afraid of evil tidings;

His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.

His heart is established;

He will not be afraid,

Until he sees his desire upon his enemies.

He has dispersed abroad,

He has given to the poor;

His righteousness endures forever;

His horn will be exalted with honor.

The wicked will see it and be grieved;

He will gnash his teeth and melt away;

The desire of the wicked shall perish.

Arrogance and Ignorance

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

There are $600 trillion worth of derivative contracts worldwide according to the Bank of International Settlements. In simple terms, derivatives are debt bets between two parties that are very hard to collect on.  According to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the nation’s five largest commercial banks held 95 percent of the $291 trillion derivatives portfolio of the country’s 25 largest bank holding companies at the end of the first quarter. More than 90 percent of those derivatives were in unregulated trading.  See:

Public pensions in the U.S.have a record $2 trillion deficit.  The U.S. debt load now at about $12 trillion will be at least $14.3 trillion by the end of the year.  This does not include unfunded liabilities in excess of $60 trillion.  Forty of the states are in fiscal deficits as well as municipalities within the states. 

Seven states of the forty are California, Florida, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, and New Jersey. Each has a population above 8 million people and has had to borrow more than a billion dollars, so far, to pay unemployment insurance claims. Each state currently suffers with unemployment levels above 15% as measured by the U-6 measure for the States.  Also, each state is a large net importer of either oil, natural gas, electricity, or all three of these energy sources.  If you consider that true money is “production of human labor and resources”, these states will not fare well in the coming months.

Benjamin Graham’s (Bio) distinction between investment and speculation: investment is the discipline of buying any asset at a good price which protects you from an unknown future, buying with a margin of safety, while speculation, or trading, is the discipline of correctly predicting the future.  Speculation has taken over the markets.

Those in control promise to ‘fix the problem tomorrow’.  Finance ministers and central bankers are exhibiting the behavioral phenomenon of “overconfidence in their future self-control”.   Oscar Wilde said, “I can resist anything but temptation”.  Doing something you know you shouldn’t is easier if you can convince yourself that this will be the last time you indulge, that you won’t do it again.  So we convince ourselves that since we’ll be strong in the future, we can still indulge today thus we delude ourselves into thinking that we will take the more difficult path next time.  The current delusion of the debt problem becomes exponentially more complex when you add in the concept of dependence and addiction, not so much to a substance, but to an idea that we can always print more money.

Our Heavenly Father compels us to decide a direction TODAY, not tomorrow.  We live in the “now” and our actions today determine the direction or our lives.  All of this fiscal irresponsibility will produce death and destruction and the only question is how it will play out and affect each of us on the planet.  The arrogance and ignorance of those in charge believe their own “press”.  As they walk out their “god complex” in their minds filled with illusions of grandeur, the average person is placed in immediate peril without any knowledge or understanding.  Only by repentance will nations return to blessing and sustainable prosperity.

Joshua 24:15  And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that [were] on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

U.S. Ranked 16th on List

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Credit Suisse issued a report identifying those countries it determined to have the highest risks of default on their sovereign debts. Number 16 on the list was the United States, based primarily on its 2009 budget deficits and government debt.  In Scripture, 16 represents “Love”.  Does this mean that the rest of the world now loves us?

Two Global Currencies

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

The world is moving to two global currencies:  Gold and SDR’s.  The value of SDR’s (Special Drawing Rights) is determined by a weighted basket of currencies and is accounted for by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).  The U.S. Dollar is expected to become more of a regional currency like the Euro and Yen.  Gold has an absolute value whereas the SDR has a relative value, sort of like Divine Nature versus human nature.

The crisis is deepening:

1. PIIGS  (Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, Spain)

These countries have serious economic problems and will cause a drain on the rest of the Euroland countries.  See:

2. States

“The mire facing California, for example, makes Greece’s woes look somewhat manageable. California, staring at a $20 billion budget gap over the next 17 months, accounts for about 13 percent of the U.S. economy. Greece accounts for just 3 percent of the economy of countries that use the euro.”  See:

California, New York, Michigan, and 37 other states are all facing serious fiscal shortfalls.  They are trying to increase taxes in an election year so you can imagine how this will turn out.  Municipal bonds of many municipalities will be downgraded, possibly forcing bankruptcy at the municipal level.  Once a few take the path and dilute the stigma of bankruptcy, many will follow.

3. Federal Deficit

The U.S. is on an unsustainable course with deficits rising, the national debt soaring, and Social Security and Medicare preparing to go bust. At 10 percent of gross domestic product, the $1.6 trillion budget deficit for 2010 forecast by the Obama administration ranks as the highest such ratio since World War II.   The administration predicts that this ratio will fall to about 4 percent by 2015.  Who are they kidding?  Debt is expected to climb to 77 percent of gross domestic product by 2019, according to Moody’s.  I wonder what the worst case scenario might be?

3.  Unemployment

There were 6.1 unemployed workers in December, on average, for every available position, according to Labor Department data released Tuesday.  That’s a sharp increase from 3.4 jobless workers per opening in December of 2008, and much worse than the 1.7 unemployed people per opening in December 2007, when the recession began.  This number does not count the students who are looking for a job but unable to find one since older, more mature unemployed workers are snatching up those positions normally filled by students.  Is this a better job picture?

4.  Home Equity

More than a fifth of U.S. homeowners owed more than their properties were worth in the fourth quarter as the number of houses and condominiums lost to foreclosure climbed to a record, according to  Bank sales of foreclosed properties accounted for a fifth of all U.S. home sales in December, Zillow said. Such transactions made up 68 percent of sales in Merced, California; 64 percent in the Las Vegas area; and 62 percent in Modesto, California, the company said.  When you see your largest asset dwindle in value, what makes the government think that you are going to go on a shopping spree and initiate a recovery?  See:

5.  Iran

Iran continues to keep the nuclear stakes in the forefront of the Middle East dilemma.  Their threats may provoke an Israeli response soon.  See:

With the complexities of the issues around the world and the growing globalization that eliminates the protective economic walls around countries, Our Heavenly Father is the only one who can truly get us out of this mess.  World leaders would have to be in one accord as well as their citizens to navigate out of this monetary and fiscal crisis that just won’t go away.  The banksters have finally crossed the rubicon and have no way to undo the damage they caused over the last few decades.  The average citizen does not want to pay for what the wealthy and privileged have done.  Most of the population operates on the assumption of “entitlement” even if they are only entitled to water at the local stream.  Who is personally willing to give up any hard earned assets or access so that the wealthy can escape this crisis?

The only true solution is for Our Heavenly Father raise up HIS elect to solve these problems by hearing HIS voice and only acting according to HIS Word.  Otherwise, we’re toast!

The (E)scape goat

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

The remission of sin was externalized in the Old Testament.  The High Priest conducted ceremonies to cleanse the people of their sin.  However, this only lasted up to one year and the process was repeated.  This process was a well documented type and shadow of what Jesus would have to do as the perfect sacrifice.

Not only was Jesus sacrificed as a lamb at the end of His earthly ministry, He was the scapegoat at the beginning.  Jesus fulfilled the required sacrifices of the Law that Our Heavenly Father had established to deal with the sins and transgressions of the people.  The Book of Leviticus provides us with detail:

Leviticus 16:21   "Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, concerning all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable man.

Leviticus 16:22   "The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to an uninhabited land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness.  NKJV

There were three types of conditions that had to be addressed:  iniquities (guilt), transgressions (rebellion against), and sins (to miss or err from the mark).  Rebellious behavior is the deliberate disobeying of someone in authority.  Aaron had to lay both of his hands on the head of the goat denoting where these conditions existed- in the mind of man.  Annually, man’s mind was to be renewed by this ceremony.  On the other hand, Jesus being the perfect sacrifice provided us the means to deal with these conditions on a permanent basis.  The Apostle Paul exhorts us to walk accordingly:

Romans 12:2   And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.  KJV

Once these conditions of man were transferred to the goat, the goat was then led into the wilderness by a “fit” man.  Later, Jesus would be led into the wilderness by the Most Holy Spirit thus fulfilling the “scapegoat” requirement as well.  This was to occur before His ministry began.  In Matthew 4 , the devil tempted Jesus to succumb to the ego enticing Him with acts of rebellion and sin resulting in guilt, the very things transferred to the goat by Aaron.  Toward the end of His ministry, Jesus would refer to the goat:

Matthew 25:32-46

"All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.

"And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.

"Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

‘for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;

‘I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

"Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?

‘When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?

‘Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’

"And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

"Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:

‘for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;

‘I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’

"Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’

"Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’

"And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

Our Heavenly Father’s right hand always represents mercy whereas His left hand always denotes judgment.  This Scripture has been interpreted in the past to  indicate that some men would be sent to hell forever.  This is not the case.  Our Heavenly Father ultimately reconciles all men unto Him, not just a few.  “Creation’s Jubilee” by Stephen Jones at provides all the detail of reconciliation of ALL mankind.

Since this parable of sheep and goats is not about men, what is it about?  It is about the two conditions of a man.  The sheep hear their Father’s voice and the goats listen to their own ego.  Love feeds the hungry, gives drink to the thirsty, shelter to the stranger, clothing to the naked, healing to the sick, and comfort to the imprisoned.  The ego would say that these men in need should “get it together” and not bother me with your need of my resources.  Until you can be led into the wilderness and pass the “ego” test, your anointing will not reach its potential.

Testimony: To bear witness

Monday, February 8th, 2010

Prophets throughout history had the responsibility to bear witness to mankind of what Our Heavenly Father planned to do on earth.  In the Heavenly Courts, each of us has the responsibility to bear witness “under oath” and provide the truth and the facts as evidence of our right to defend ourselves against spiritual attacks.  Spiritual attacks precede physical attacks for the higher realm of Heaven precedes the lower physical realm.  Jesus understood this law and thus had command of the physical realm because HE operated in the Heavenly realm and was fully compliant of the legal requirements in the Heavenly Court.  With this understanding HE was able to satisfy the Law requiring a perfect blood sacrifice for the sins of the world.

A witness brings forth a testimony.  The definition of testimony:

  • a solemn statement made under oath
  • an assertion offering firsthand authentication of a fact; "according to his own testimony he can’t do it"
  • something that serves as evidence; "his effort was testimony to his devotion"
  • The first use of “testimony” was used to describe the Ark of the Covenant in Exodus 16:34-

    Exodus 16:32   Then Moses said, "This is the thing which the LORD has commanded: ‘Fill an omer with it, to be kept for your generations, that they may see the bread with which I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you out of the land of Egypt.’"

    Exodus 16:33   And Moses said to Aaron, "Take a pot and put an omer of manna in it, and lay it up before the LORD, to be kept for your generations."

    Exodus 16:34   As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.  NKJV

    The Ark of the Covenant was a “testimony” of the Law (the tablets), the Authority (Aaron’s rod), and the giving of life or provision (the omer of manna).  The contents were to be a reminder to the people of the commitment made by Our Heavenly Father and this was to be a testimony for future generations.  This manna was the only manna to survive more than two days.  In Exodus 25, Our Heavenly Father told Moses:

    "You shall put the mercy seat on top of the ark, and in the ark you shall put the Testimony that I will give you, And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are on the ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.”

    The Lawgiver gave Moses the Commandments and Statutes to live by with the “testimony” of HIS power, authority, and provision as credible witnesses.  The Holy of Holies where the Ark was kept, acted as a temporal, earthly version of the “Throne of Grace”.  Just as the high priest had to be cleansed before entering into this chamber of this highest court where the Presence of GOD was manifested, so we must enter into the Heavenly Court cleansed by the Blood of Jesus Christ.  We must remit our sins under the Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ and we do this in HIS Name, Amen!  Without first being cleansed of our sins, we have no right to stand in the presence of Our Heavenly Father to bear witness of our Heavenly case and provide testimony supporting our reasons to have the Heavenly Court judge our accusers and adversaries.

    In order for us to effectively win the spiritual battles that confront us, we must understand the basics of the Heavenly Court system and our rights to confront our adversaries and challenge their power and authority.  If we fail to show up for our “court case”, the adversary will receive a favorable judgment by default.  We have the responsibility to testify and bear witness of the Word Of GOD in our hearts and to go boldly to the Throne of Grace.  When lawlessness confronts us, we must present our case to Our Heavenly Father so that HE can lawfully execute righteous judgment on our behalf, first in the Heavenly realm, then the earthly realm.  When persistent, adverse, and unusual circumstances plague you or your loved ones, you would be well advised to bring your case before Our Heavenly Father and exercise your legal rights as a saint of the Most High GOD.
