Lack of Understanding

Sunday, January 5th, 2014

The term “darkness” is used often in Scripture.  One application of darkness is ignorance, or lack of understanding.  Ignorance is defined as lack of knowledge or information.  The term “stupid” means lacking intelligence or common sense.  With most people, the issue is not intelligence, they simply lack understanding.  Sometimes intelligence is a hindrance to further understanding.  The ego would convince you that you already know everything needed about a particular subject.  Young adults are often noted for their attitude of knowing everything and not needing any counsel from their parents.  In their case, they lack wisdom.

In the Holy Place is the lampstand.  It provides light or revelation, that is to say… understanding.  The lampstand, also known as the menorah, included seven candles.  Seven represents Spiritual Perfection.  As we have focused in our online Bible study of Raising the Remnant, we all need wisdom, understanding, and knowledge.  Once you have gained the wisdom to seek understanding, you become enlightened.  Effectively, you have entered into the Holy Place en route to the Holy of Holies.  Revelation lights the way to the curtain or veil that separates you from HIS Glory.  You must go through the process of maturity to enter in to the Holy of Holies.  Jesus rent the veil that each of us might enter in but we cannot do so unlawfully.  Just as the Garden and Tree of Life is protected by the Angel with a flaming sword, our flesh is restricted from entering into the manifested Presence of Our Heavenly Father.  Had Adam run to the flaming sword and “died” to the flesh, he would not have been restricted from the Tree of Life.

The masses will not enter into the Holy Place today.  They would prefer to stay in the outer darkness of ignorance where there is gnashing of teeth.  Isn’t it interesting how powerful the ego is that it can convince you to stay in darkness and suffer!  You are just one decision away from moving toward the Light.  As you do move toward the Light, you move toward Spiritual Perfection.  Your level of understanding ascends toward Heaven and you begin to understand the term “Arise and shine”.

The word “darkness” comes from the word meaning “hidden”.  Why hide revelation from the masses?  The lawlessness of men would use revelation to exploit others rather than serve mankind.  This is why it is critical to gain the revelation of Love.  Once you truly walk in Love, revelation is opened up to you in order that you might proceed to the Holy of Holies and behold HIS Glory.

The lampstand had 22 almond blossoms in its presentation.  The word “almond” in derived from a Hebrew word meaning: to wake, watch, awake, be alert.  The number “22” refers to light and revelation and there are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet.  Hence, the Word of GOD is the light and revelation we need to become fully mature.  When you divide 22 by 7, the result is the value of “Pi”, a never-ending number.  Pi is another representation of Love.  As you can see, the revelation in Scripture is designed to bring you into the fullness of Love.  You can decide to continue in darkness or move toward the light.  As you move toward the light, you see mankind in a different light.  Instead of exploiting others for self gain, you begin to look at ways to serve.  The light of the lampstand is to bring you to the revelation of Love and the revelation of Love is to bring you into HIS Presence!

Peace of Mind

Saturday, January 4th, 2014

The economic blogs I write are unsettling to those who trust in the world’s system.  The Western banking system is in shambles and the central banks are in the final throes of a Great Reset of the monetary system.  Fear, uncertainty, and doubt will fill the minds of many as this event unfolds.  There will be high anxiety among those who trusted in uncertain riches.  Now is the time to turn your trust to Our Heavenly Father.  How?  By establishing and deepening a daily communion in HIS Presence.  HIS Spirit is with you always but the issue is whether HIS Spirit is manifesting in you, or hidden away waiting for you to come to the end of your “self”.  Psalm 27 will become a central focus to many when the economic turmoil increases beyond the ability of those currently in power to contain it.

1   A Psalm of David.
The LORD is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?

Light, salvation, and strength are the three promises every person will need in the coming months and years.  Jehovah, "the existing One", is the One who will provide light and revelation to us as we navigate through the coming events.  It will be imperative for each of us to become sensitive to HIS Voice, step by step.  This is why each of us should turn off the TV, radio, and other distractions, in order that we may enter our prayer “closet” and increase our sensitivity to HIS Spirit.  As for me, I find that the first thing in the morning is an ideal time for me to go before HIM.  This prepares me for the day.  As I do this, I notice that throughout the day, HE will direct me in the daily activities, even in the small things.  It may seem difficult at first, but as you maintain your focus on HIM, HE will be pleased to direct your steps.  You will be at peace when HE directs you to do this, or buy that, or abstain from such and such, or delay the trip, or postpone your plan…  When HE instructs you to take on a project, you will then become drawn to the process of completing the project.  Other tasks will not interfere for HE will quiet those things that would distract you.

Those that trust in uncertain riches will get desperate quickly.  You should be prepared.  The Bible speaks of 13 famines.  In the story of Joseph, he was prepared well in advance of the coming famine, approximately 20 years.  At the time of his dream. he was seventeen.  Who knew that a famine was coming?  Only Our Heavenly Father,  nobody else!  HE prepared those whose hearts were drawn to HIM.  The fact that you are reading this would indicate you are being drawn as well.  Who knows how the next few years will play out?  Absolutely nobody EXCEPT Our Heavenly Father.  This is why it is critical to prepare yourself now.  Light, salvation, and strength will see you through the tumultuous times ahead.  HIS Living Presence in you will provide the peace of mind required to stabilize those around you when the illusion of their wealth finally meets reality.

8   When You said, “Seek My face,”
My heart said to You, “Your face, LORD, I will seek.”

Now is the time!

Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. 35 But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.

Love does not create division.  Man’s ego will convince him to exalt himself over another.  It is true when people apply prophecies to specific groups of people.  The Jews did this and continue to do this in many of the prophecies found in the Old Testament.  They judge themselves by their intentions and judge everyone else by their actions.  Peter was a great example.  He walked with Jesus and was in the inner circle, yet when the pressure came, he denied Christ three times.  If that wouldn’t disqualify you, what would?  Instead, Jesus forgave him and the rest of the world for they did not know what they were doing.  Later, Peter was empowered with the Holy Spirit and went forth in his calling.  Peter assumed that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit was restricted to a subset of civilization, specifically the Jews, the chosen ones.  He had a narrow view of “The Plan”.  Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.  Earth isn’t just a single region set aside for Our Heavenly Father to reign with the rest of the geography outside HIS Kingdom.  No, I believe the Creator of the whole earth will redeem every nation, all people, and nobody will be left behind.  Isn’t that what Love does?  Peter finally saw the big picture in the verse above.

Our Heavenly Father has the ability to plant a remnant in every corner of the world.  Would HE be partial to 1% of HIS creation at the expense of the rest?  Paul was called to preach to the Gentiles:

Ephesians 3:5 which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets: 6 that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel.

Love embraces all of mankind and righteous judgment does not differentiate between any two individuals based on their past.  Being “chosen” by Our Heavenly Father does not denote an imperial position with everyone else bowing down.  On the contrary, it denotes service to mankind and dying to the flesh.  It is man’s ego that want to divide and promote partiality.

Jesus showed no partiality when it came to ministering to those in need.  He was as comfortable with a harlot as He was with a priest or a Roman soldier.  We are not to esteem one above another.  I have seen many men attempt to align themselves with the wealthy, as though being close to a wealthy person would somehow cause some money to float in their direction.  Warren Buffet’s hoard of followers is a great example.  If they could just get a little closer to Warren, maybe some of his brilliance would wear off on them.  Not!  If only men were as excited as pursuing a closeness with Our Heavenly Father as they are in pursuing the “rich and famous”.  The ego is an unsympathetic taskmaster.

As we walk in the Revelation of Love, we too will no longer show partiality toward others.  The beggar will be appreciated for who he is versus the rich man.  Both were created by Our Heavenly Father for a purpose.  Our problem is that we are often blind to that purpose and only know in part.  We then become “partial”.  We need to focus on being complete and in unity.

Swift Judgment

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

We are now living in the time where swift judgment can easily occur.  Our monetary system has been reduced to bits and bytes in a massive computer network that did not exist with any reliability 30 years ago.  In 1999, the Internet was relatively unstable where businesses and consumers could rely on it in a consistent manner.  In the last 20 years, America has basically mortgaged the future of it children and grandchildren, accumulating a staggering $220 Trillion in total debt.  The word “debauchery” comes to mind when describing the path of many Americans under the guise of being “progressive”.  I view it as “regressive”.

Judgment from Above is corrective in nature.  Our Heavenly Father’s Divine Intent is motivated by Love and when it is necessary the flesh must suffer.  Pain is not destructive but an indicator of the severity of the problem.  It is to alert us of the need for a change.  When a drug addict removes the source of his addiction, he is going to suffer withdrawal, sometimes in an extreme manner.  Withdrawal from lawless behavior will challenge the body and the soul but it is necessary for full restoration to occur.

How much longer will the current lawlessness be allowed to continue?  I would suggest that it will progress until the Remnant is fully equipped and matured.

The current economic is extremely fragile, nothing is secure: not your borders, not your bank account, not your job, not your land…  There are now plenty of laws on the books to take virtually anything and everything you possess, and it is deemed for the greater good.  The only thing that cannot be taken from you is your relationship with Our Heavenly Father.  If there is anything I would recommend for the reader to do this year, it is to focus on that relationship, daily!  When the day of judgment arrives, you will not be able to run to your prayer closet and begin establishing some type of instant relationship.  A seed planted must have time to grow and produce fruit.  If there was ever a time to get serious about turning away from lawlessness, now is the time.  When judgment comes, the Remnant will run toward the flaming sword of the angel, not away from it.  We must die to the flesh!

J.P. Morgan’s Expectations

After a year of being battered, gold and silver stocks are being removed from the “hated” list.  I found the following article quite interesting:

Happy New Year and… Be Ready!

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

This year brings two movies of note:   “Noah” and “Son of GOD”.

The Great Flood took away the unrighteous from the earth and left only the righteous.  The death angel in Egypt took away the first born of the world and spared the children of Israel.  They remained, covered by the Blood.  In the Parable of the wheat and the tares, ultimately the tares are removed.  Jesus referred to Noah in the following passage:

Matthew 24:36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two women will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

A Great Separation is coming but it won’t arrive until the “Sons of GOD” are fully mature.  Both the righteous and the wicked will be allowed to grow in the same field.  As each of us pursues the fullness of the revelation of Love and Truth, we will do our part in the big picture.  Our Heavenly Father moves upon men to provide the world with adequate notice of HIS Divine Intent.  The Prophets of Old were assigned that very task.  Today, some movies provide the same function.  As the Sons are fully matured, I expect manifestation to come just as it did when Jesus walked the earth.  That will be a “revealing” event.  There is no doubt that unrighteousness continues to grow to epic proportions as well.

We at Servias Ministries will continue to do our part in the maturing of the Saints.  We will spread the Word of Love, Truth, and forgiveness.  We appreciated those who supported us this last year and we trust you will be blessed in similar manner.  May Our Heavenly Father’s resources be deployed in a greater manner in 2014 and bring more good fruit to all of mankind.
