The Smoke of the Pit

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

Revelation 9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit

When Jesus opens the bottomless pit with the Key, smoke arises out of the depths of the pit.  Smoke hinders our ability to see and we are warned not to drive into smoke on the highway.  The smoke ascends into the air and its thickness keeps us from seeing the sun.

Genesis 19:28  Then he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain; and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land which went up like the smoke of a furnace.

This smoke relates to our understanding or ability to see.  The deceitful heart cannot see the truth but operates on illusion and perception.  Sodom and Gomorrah were two cities where this deceitfulness had reached its apex and the perversion was so great, judgment would wait no longer.  Lot had been drawn toward Sodom by his eyes.  The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life were all working together to get Lot and his family to reside in the depths of the bottomless pit.  His understanding had been darkened to the point where he could no longer move about the city but had to be rescued from certain destruction.  The whole area had to go through the purifying fire.  The result- smoke billowing up as though from a furnace.

When the bottomless pit is dealt with, the darkness of our understanding will be exposed.  This darkness contains the smoke or deceitfulness of our heart.  When Jesus opens this pit, this deceitfulness rises up to be judged.  This deceitfulness is so great it even darkens the light from above.

1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.

17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

Those who believe in the rapture have hung their hat on the above passage.  The carnal nature of man want to externalize the truth of this passage and assign a physical departure from earth just in time before the earth gets destroyed by judgment.  It assumes that FATHER is not great enough to resolve the issues of mankind and intervene in the affairs of men.  They have no problem with FATHER physically blasting away Sodom and Gomorrah but don’t think HE can resolve today’s unrighteousness.  The CREATOR of the universe is not so limited as to find it necessary to disintegrate this earth in order to start over.  In the Old Testament, death and destruction are metaphors for conversion and transformation in the New Testament.

We will meet the Lord in the air by having our understanding enlightened.  Put away your anti-gravity shoes, we’re staying here to minister life to all mankind.  All of the end-time prophets were unburdened with the truth and reality.  Their predictions kept missing the mark over the years.  “But wait!” they would proclaim.  They forgot one detail or another in their pontificating.  The fact is if they really heard FATHER, every word would come to pass.

The deception of the heart keeps our understanding darkened like the smoke arising out of the furnace.  The air is where understanding occurs.  Could this be why the Book of Love (Revelation) has been so misunderstood for centuries?  Could it be that we are finally unlocking the true revelation of Jesus Christ which has been in plain sight all this time?

Ephesians 2:2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,

3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.

The devil would keep all our thoughts in captivity if possible.  But thankfully, Jesus took the keys of death and Hades and has the power and authority over this “prince of the air” in our lives.  We were once sons of disobedience, vessels of dishonor, but now we are being redeemed by the One who has the Key of Love.   In 1 Corinthians 14, Paul urged us:

20 Brethren, do not be children in understanding; however, in malice be babes, but in understanding be mature.

As our understanding is enlightened, the air will dissipate the smoke arising from the deceitful heart.  As the heart is purified, we will see the Sun of righteousness and no longer submit to the prince of the air but instead the King of Kings.  Jesus will clear the air originating from the darkness of our bottomless pit.  He will release and clear out the smoke from that burning furnace some call hell.  The deceitful and darkened heart is surely hell on earth for out of it can come no good thing.  As we get cleaned out in our progression through the seven trumpets (specific Words) toward the fullness of Spiritual maturity, we can fully understand the words of Paul in Ephesians 1:

17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,

18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power

20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,

21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.

Jesus is clearing the way for the full revelation of HIM being manifested in us as sons so that we will be fully equipped to rule and reign on this earth.  Once our bottomless pit is cleaned out and we are emptied, we will then meet him in the air and will always by with Him in spirit and understanding.

This smoke arose as though it was from a great furnace but none is found in the bottomless pit.  It was a deception.  Deception has no real power behind it, only a perception of power.  People living their lives in an illusion will one day come to the stark reality of the emptiness of their life.  Their carnal understanding will be revealed by the light of HIS Glory.  It will be like the noonday sun where no shadow is cast and there is no longer any darkness of understanding.  The Sons are called to the greater works where they will don the white robes of righteousness and function as priests according to the Order of Melchizedek.  Our spiritual darkness must be first removed in order for us to provide light to others.  This light will spread the truly good news of Jesus Christ, the Initiator of the restoration of all mankind and the eternity of hell doctrine will have no place once their understanding is enlightened and the smoke is cleared away.

The Keys To Our Bottomless Pit

Saturday, November 29th, 2014

Revelation 9:1  Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit.

Jesus Christ went to the Cross and overcame death.  After the suffering on the Cross, He descending into the lower depths of Hades and then ascending to the Holiest Place presenting His blood as a fully acceptable sacrifice for all mankind.  In doing this, He obtained “The Keys” of death and hell:

Revelation 1:17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.

18 I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.

A key opens and closes doors and locks.  It also opens the door of understanding- a revelation.  Throughout the book of Revelation everything is being opened: doors, seals, and books.  The keys are being used to reveal what is inside and contained therein!  A most critical revelation to each of us is our bottomless pit!  Within this pit contains the results of us eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil… both fruits.  This pit must be opened and exposed in order for us to come into full perfection.  This access to the utter disgust must be dealt with by ONE who is not moved by all the ugliness contained within.  It must be emptied totally and completely so that we may ascend.

Romans 8:6   For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.

The carnal mind, the ego, aka “self” is in opposition to the revelation of Love.  It thrives on lies and deception and has its roots from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  The serpent deceived Eve and Adam disjoined himself from FATHER, accepted the deception, and ate from the tree as well.  From that point of separation, the bottomless pit was opened and has been used as a dumping ground for all the sin, deceptions, and lawlessness.  The roots run deep beyond what any man can fathom.  People seem to do something out of character and you ask “Where did that come from?”  It came from the bottomless pit in that person’s heart.

Jeremiah 17: 9 ​​“The heart is deceitful above all things,

​​And desperately wicked;

​​Who can know it?

10 ​​I, the LORD, search the heart,

​​I test the mind,

​​Even to give every man according to his ways,

​​According to the fruit of his doings.

This fruit is from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  This bottomless pit is deceiving and runs deeper than you can imagine.  Jesus Christ has been given the key that can fully access this pit and it is time for its contents to be revealed, both the bad fruit and the good fruit.  Yes, there is good fruit to judge as well:

Eccl 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:

​​​Fear God and keep His commandments,

​​For this is man’s all.

14 ​​For God will bring every work into judgment,

​​Including every secret thing,

​​Whether good or evil.

Moral and ethical acts are judged as well as those of deceit and wickedness.  Neither of these groups arise from the Tree of Life.  Every man can do what is right in his own eyes with great sincerity but be sincerely wrong.  This is why it is so important to focus on hearing HIS voice and accessing the Tree of Life.  Paul eludes to the day when Jesus Christ reveals the contents of our pit:

Romans 2:16  in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.

Our innermost secrets are found in the depths of this pit and we must give open access to our Loving Savior and Elder Brother who so Loved us He spilled His blood specifically for us.  He did this knowing what He would find in our bottomless pit.  There is nothing there that would surprise Him!  What do you think He saw when he took possession of the keys?  When does the revealing begin?  It began when you took the path toward Spiritual maturity.  HE has been dealing with you ever since.  It is a process occurring as you continue being renewed.  There is no sense running and hiding as Adam did.  Simply accept and acknowledge the truth of the matter knowing HIS grace is sufficient no matter what is revealed.  He is our hope. 

Do you think the keys would be given to one who did not Love us greater than our sins?  He is our High Priest who fully understands the mission of clearing out our bottomless pit and taking the axe to the deep roots of the tree found in the pit.  We are now in the process of being conformed to His Image.  He is delivering us from the bondage of sin and death and it is all good.  Your old man would try to convince you otherwise but silence those thoughts and move forward in openness and transparency.  FATHER, bring it to completion for the victory is at hand!

Micah 7:7 ​​Therefore I will look to the LORD;

​​I will wait for the God of my salvation;

​​My God will hear me.

​8 ​​Do not rejoice over me, my enemy;

​​When I fall, I will arise;

​​When I sit in darkness,

​​The LORD will be a light to me.

Let the light from Heaven come into the bottomless pit today and I encourage rapid but complete conclusion to dealing with my pit.  Let everything come to light and be righteously judged by HIM who is the Captain of my salvation so that I can enter the ranks as a Son to ride on to victory with the KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

The Fifth Trumpet Continued

Friday, November 28th, 2014

The focus of the firth trumpet is the heart of man and Jesus Christ has the key to the problem.  A key is used to unlock something to be released.  After all, He did come to set the captives free.

In Jeremiah 17, FATHER makes an emphatic statement about our heart:

9 ​​“The heart is deceitful above all things,

​​And desperately wicked;

​​Who can know it?

10 ​​I, the LORD, search the heart,

​​I test the mind,

​​Even to give every man according to his ways,

​​According to the fruit of his doings.”

Only Our Heavenly Father knows what is in the depths of our hearts and thus HE is the only One who can truly deal with its contents.  HE gave His Son the power and authority to judge and deal with the bottomless pit where the gross impurities lie.  The roots of the Adamic nature are located here and must have an axe laid to those roots.  This surgery is an act of Love.  What is the result of this surgery?

Matthew 5:8  Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

This is the location of “Intent” and our intent must be purified in order to qualify as Sons of Love.  Any motive other than pure Love must be removed so that righteous judgment can come forth from the Sons who have been give the rod of iron.  The Psalmist understood the importance of this as he penned in Psalm 51:

10 ​​Create in me a clean heart, O God,

​​And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

11 ​​Do not cast me away from Your presence,

​​And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.

​12 ​​Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,

​​And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.

13 ​​Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,

​​And sinners shall be converted to You.

The deception of the heart brought forth the Adamic nature and the exposure and removal of deception is what restores life in its fullness.  Eve who represents our soul was deceived by the serpent.  When Adam joined Eve in her deception, he became “disjoined” with FATHER in spirit.  The communion ceased and Adam began of process of dying.  Yes, the heart is deceitful above all things.  The Sons are to be joined to THE FATHER once again and the judgments of the trumpets are necessary for this process to come to fulfillment.  Death came by deception and life will come by dealing with and removing the deception and wickedness found in the bottomless pit of the heart.  Romans chapter 1 states this deceitful state quite clearly:

21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,

23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

And in the book of Ephesians, Paul further states:

4:17 This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind,

18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart;

19 who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

The deceitful heart is the first thing to overcome and those who externalize the book of Revelation are being deceived into thinking there is no internal work to be done.  “Let’s call a spade a spade!”  All the past prophecies concerning the Book of Revelation did not come to pass and a multitude of excuses have been given to rationalize why those prophets missed it.  I say to you the deceitful heart will send you in any direction In order to protect that bottomless pit from being accessed by CHRIST.  Once we finally accept this reality, we are giving Christ access with HIS key to the innermost depths of our heart where all the secrets lie.  We must be emptied of self in order to be filled with HIM.  It is time to quit dancing around this gross deception and deal with the truth of the matter.  Quit looking elsewhere for some event to occur that would signal your redemption.  The heart is where the issue lies:

Hebrews 10:22  let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

Once we are finally willing to deal with the internal rather than the external, those of us with a pure heart SHALL SEE GOD!  What a sight to behold!  In 2 Timothy chapter 2, Paul redirects the focus to a pure heart:

22 Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

23 But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.

24 And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient,

25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth,

26 and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.

Let us come to our senses and get back to the issue at hand- The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked.  Now is the time to change.

Woe, Woe, Woe

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

Revelation 8:13 And I looked, and I heard an angel (eagle) flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”  NKJV

  • NASB 8:13 Then I looked, and I heard an eagle flying in midheaven, saying with a loud voice, "Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!"

Suddenly John encounters an eagle after the first four trumpets.  The eagle is known for its swiftness, strength, far-reaching eyesight, and power.  This particular symbol of power announces three woes to come forth, something like a triple witness.  This last book of the Bible is providing a set of bookends to the first book (Genesis) split into four and three:

  • Created the heaven and the Earth, day and night
  • Divided heaven from Earth
  • Created the land, sea and vegetation
  • Created the sun, moon and stars

    The days of the pronouncement of blessings (God blessed them and said):

  • Created creatures, great and small
  • Created mankind
  • Sanctified the seventh day as the Sabbath, the day of rest.

    Now we have the seven trumpets with the last three being announced as judgments rather than blessings.  The woes specifically direct our attention to the last three trumpets.  The first creation where blessing was initiated and then the sin of Adam came is being reversed now.  The old creation is being concluded and judged and the new heavens and earth will replace the old.  It will be a new day in the end and every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is LORD.  There has been a consistent theme of “bookends” as of late bringing our focus on the last three trumpets to be sounded.  These woes are conveyed as intense and complete in nature.

    The Fifth Trumpet

    Revelation 9:1  Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star (that had) fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit.

    2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit.

    3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

    4 They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.

    The number five represents grace in Scripture but most people read these passage with horror.  These are the sign-watchers.  Their focus and source of information and revelation come from reading signs, not hearing FATHER’S Voice.  They thrive on fear and lust for more adrenalin to flush through the veins.  Each world event heightens their emotional state only to be told there is another delay due to some other sign yet to be seen.  Years go by and they are kept at the same level of maturity of a decade ago.  They never judge the fruit of those who have kept them hanging on and stringing them on.  The result is that they have financially supported an adrenalin addiction, similar to wormwood (poppies, opium).  Hearing FATHER’S Voice will change your path and put you back on the right path.  HIS Grace is sufficient to accomplish this correction.

    A star represents a word, a higher level of understanding or knowledge and this star had already fallen in the past.  This star represents the WORD made flesh coming down from Heaven to the earth.  This represents the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ, the Star of Jacob as noted in Numbers 24:

    17 ​​“I see Him, but not now;

    ​​I behold Him, but not near;

    ​​A Star shall come out of Jacob;

    ​​A Scepter shall rise out of Israel,

    ​​And batter the brow of Moab,

    ​​And destroy all the sons of tumult.

    The time of judgment is at hand and destruction will result.  This star is the living revelation of Jesus Christ, the focus of this entire book.  It is a book of Love at its highest understanding depicting both aspects of the Divine Intent of Love: grace and judgment.  Both are required to bring forth the fullness of HIM in our lives.  Leaving out judgment is like enabling a drug addict to continue his path toward destruction.  Without judgment and correction there is no growth and the immature are allowed to continue their childish acts no matter what their physical age.

    Jesus humbled himself by descending from Heaven and taking on a body of flesh.  He made himself of no reputation.  He claimed no title of doctor, PhD, high priest, king, or any other label.  He emptied himself and walked in full humility.  The Sons must do the same.  FATHER then exalted Jesus after His baptism and confirm His power and authority with signs following.  The Sons will experience the same.  To my knowledge, none have yet received this fullness.  There is still time to be either blotted out or brought in.

  • This “star” or Jesus was given the key to the bottomless pit.  When something is bottomless, it has no foundation whatsoever.  A pit is a hole designed to ensnare the prey into captivity.  It speaks of darkness where no revelation is to be found.  It is where lies are found and there is no truth.  Man’s carnal nature is drawn to this bottomless pit.  In relative terms, it is as far as one can be from Heaven and it is in clear opposition to Christ.  This is the core or root of all that is opposed to Christ but Jesus Christ has the key!  He has the power to deal with the root cause of any aspect of our lives that would hinder our ascension to full spiritual maturity, the perfection of Love.  Those secrets that are so deeply rooted no man can discover them, neither would you ever admit to them.  However, FATHER knows the thoughts and intents of every man.  The axe of judgment must be taken to the root of the matter.  The beast of the fleshly nature residing in such great darkness must be removed and until then, the battle of the “I’s” will continue.  The Psalmist wrote of the inward vastness in Psalm 51:

    5 ​​Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,

    ​​And in sin my mother conceived me.

    6 ​​Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,

    ​​And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.

    and in Psalm 64:

    5 ​​They encourage themselves in an evil matter;

    ​​They talk of laying snares secretly;

    ​​They say, “Who will see them?”

    6 ​​They devise iniquities:

    ​​“We have perfected a shrewd scheme.”

    ​​Both the inward thought and the heart of man are deep.

    The Key to this bottomless pit is in His hand and He has the power and authority to open the lock which will expose the roots of lies and deception.  He is now ready to do surgery and remove anything that would prevent complete restoration from taking place.  Woe to the man who trusts in lies and deception for his destruction will be great!

    The Fourth Trumpet

    Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

    12 Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.

    The fourth trumpet deals with the sun, the moon, and the stars.  As is the case of the entire book, we must focus on the spiritual message being presented and not a physical occurrence.  Each of these provide light or illumination to the earth below.  Each were set in place of the fourth day of creation by the sovereign act of Our Heavenly Father.  Their function is to:

    Divide the light and dark

    Be signs of timing


    Provide light and illumination

    These three lights represent rulership and dominion over earth with Our Heavenly Father being the Supreme Ruler as depicted by the sun.  The Psalmist in chapter 84 speaks of this:

    11  For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
    The LORD will give grace and glory;
    No good thing will He withhold
    From those who walk uprightly.

    Our Lord Jesus Christ is also referenced as the sun in Malachi 4:2-

    But to you who fear My name
    The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
    With healing in His wings;
    And you shall go out
    And grow fat like stall-fed calves.

    There will be a group who have turned to wisdom from Above and are likened to stars in Daniel chapter 12:

    3  Those who are wise shall shine
    Like the brightness of the firmament,
    And those who turn many to righteousness
    Like the stars
    forever and ever.

    If you review the writing of the fourth church in Thyatira (Revelation 3), Jesus gives the ministry of the morning star’s rulership and dominion to the overcomer:

    26 And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—

    ​27 ​‘​He shall rule them with a rod of iron;

    ​​They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’

    ​as I also have received from My Father; 28 and I will give him the morning star.

    29 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’

    We have a consistent theme throughout this Revelation of Love: there are two heavens and two earths, the new and the old; one ruled by FATHER, Jesus Christ, and the Sons of GOD; the other ruled by cunning men and their devices where death and destruction persist.  The Book of Revelation provides us an ongoing progression into a mature understanding of the revelation of Jesus Christ.  Each of the seven churches, trumpets, and vials all speak of Spiritual maturity through judgments of the carnal nature of man.  The end result is a new heaven and a new earth:

    Revelation 21:1  Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.

    The sea represents the lowest aspect of man where the lusts reside.  This is where the serpent of deception comes out of these waters to be revealed.  This sea is no longer found with the new heaven and earth.  This old heaven and earth is being judged by fire as Peter wrote in 2 Peter 3:

    12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?

    13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

    Just as the third trumpet dealt with rivers of revelation versus rivers of men’s views, opinions, etc., the fourth trumpet deals with the higher lights of illumination that rule and reign in men’s lives.  The Sons will no longer be dominated and ruled by men but instead will fully submit to the rulership from Above.  The lower lights shall no longer have power and authority over the Sons.  What a day to embrace!

    In each case, the “third” represents the first squadron called forth for HIS purpose.  There are three major groups to be redeemed just as their were three major feasts with three progressive functions and end results.   Paul spoke of these divisions in 1 Corinthians 15 soon after he focused on the preeminence of Love in chapter 13:

    22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.

    23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.

    24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.

    25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.

    26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.

    The light in the Holy of Holies where the throne resides is the Glory of FATHER and no natural light from the lower heaven is needed.  The light in the Holy Place is provided by lamps of revelation.  Only in the outer court is found the lower light of the former earth and heavens.  These three places represent three states and three groups.  The Sons are those who are depicted around the Throne as elders and the 144,000.  There are two distinct other groups represented in the Holy Place and the outer court.  Their light has a different and lesser source.  As we ascend to the third heaven, we will have a full revelation of Jesus Christ and this is what this entire book is about.  This ascending is accomplished by HIS Love for us.  Get the message?

    A Star Named Wormwood

    Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

    Revelation 8:11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.

    Wormwood means “bitterness”.  In the last posting, I wrote that Jesus is this Morning Star found in the above passage.  How is it that He is associated with bitterness?  Bitterness is anger and disappointment at being treated unfairly; resentment.  When Jesus arrives before us, who would be bitter?  Our carnal nature, the old man, the one who has been directing us away from the Tree of Life and Love.  The revelation of Jesus Christ is a doctrine buster, pure and simple.  Even the most mature and sincere Christians who study daily can be sincerely wrong!

    This star of bitterness originates out of Heaven and changes the waters in our earth.  There is a river in Heaven and rivers on earth thus we must consider that the river or rivers being discussed are not literal but spiritual in nature.  The River of Life in Heaven deals with the Living Word of FATHER flowing forth.  The rivers on earth being made bitter are the words, thoughts, ideas, doctrines, philosophies, and ways that are apart from HIS Divine Intent as expressed by HIS Words.  HIS Words bring “zoe” or the GOD-kind of life.  All other words bring forth death and destruction, confusion, division, bloodthirstiness, anger, resentment, and the list goes on.  Those words, acts, and deeds fall under the Law even if you are born again.  Where you reside determines how you will be dealt with.

    When a child is immature, you cannot reason with the child, you simply correct the child according to the child’s level of maturity.  When you are dealing with a mature person, a corrective word is sufficient.  When people are holding fast to their lifeless doctrines and focus on the negative, corrective revelation will bring forth bitterness and anger in some.  Why?  The old man will rise up and call the event unfair.  Why wasn’t this Truth revealed to me twenty years ago?  Why did you let me go through all the crap associated with a false doctrine?  Those who fiercely hold on to doctrines that have served them well in the past and are unwilling to let them go when a Living Truth is presented will suffer the consequences associated with such a personal loss.  In looking back over my life, I have realized that I had many “doctrines” that need to be removed thus I don’t attempt to defend any position too adamantly now.  Let each of us be pliable as FATHER puts the final touches on our vessel of honor.  Each revelation brings us up to a higher level if we don’t resist it.

    Consider this, if you don’t walk according to THE SPIRIT and FATHER’S Words, you are subject to the Law.  You would say to me that you are a Christian and the Law does not apply to you.  If indeed that is true, why are you dealing with consequences of the Law now?  Have you been sick lately?  Have you had any difficulties with work?  Have you sinned in recent days, weeks, or months?  Or are you walking around like Jesus proclaiming the Gospel and healing the sick?  Let’s be realistic, we are all missing the fullness of anointing.  It is my deepest desire to move toward the fullness of Christ being manifested in my life and I trust it is the same for you.  We must let go of any position of thought or understanding that would hinder our attainment of HIS fullness.  As a practical matter, we have yet to release something or acquire something… or both.

    John the Baptist said:

    Matthew 3:11 “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

    John the Baptist’s mandate was to “baptize unto repentance”.  If there is anybody who did not need to repent it was Jesus who knew no sin yet what did Jesus do?

    13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him.

    14 And John tried to prevent Him, saying, “I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?”

    15 But Jesus answered and said to him, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed Him.

    What could Jesus repent of?  Until that point, He was under the Law of the Old Covenant.  Jesus formally nullified the Old Covenant being applied to Him by this act.  It no longer had any effect, binding force, or power over Him.  He was sinless and yet repented of the old law so that He could now bring forth the New Covenant and a different, higher level of relationship with FATHER.  What was the immediate response of FATHER?

    16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.

    17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

    Jesus is now fully responding to FATHER’S Voice and as He said in  the Gospel of John, “For all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you” and, “I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things”.

    Until we continually hear HIS Voice and walk accordingly, we will deal with the judgments of the Law.  Our old man must fully die.  You will be either ruled by the law or ruled by the Spirit of Life and be assured there is not a third option.  The corruptible must put on the incorruptible.  Until then, the corruptible will not be independent of the law.

    The letter of the law kills and is bitter to those under the law.  It brings forth judgment by necessity.  This judgment is necessary for the earthly rivers flowing out of men’s mouths that contradict the Spirit of Life.  Every man’s words will be judged.  Are you promoting life or death by your words?  Out of the abundance of the mouth, the heart speaks.  Are your words biting and condescending toward others or do they express FATHER’S Divine Intent?

    Jesus never condemned the tax collector, prostitute, the Romans, or the wicked.  His anger was demonstrated against those who represented themselves as mature carriers of GOD’S Word.  He proclaim “eight woes” in Matthew 23 over the Pharisees.  The Son of LOVE speaks forth judgment to those who were exalted as the most mature of that day!  Yes, Love does have two arms- one of grace and mercy, and the other of judgment.  Jesus used a whip to run the moneychangers out of the temple.  Was He instructed to do so by FATHER?  Absolutely.  His words and actions were as wormwood to those recipients.

    Anyone walking by the carnal nature today is subject to the same judgments.  When you screw up?  Repent!  Don’t defend your un-defendable position and justify your actions.  The Sons will be required to walk in both aspects of Love and rule with a rod of iron when necessary.  A rod is necessary for correction and holding back correction will not cause the other person to change.  Jesus ran the moneychangers out by necessity and I bet He hurts their feelings AND egos.  Love does what it needs to do in order to bring forth repentance.  Love will reveal those dear things you once held closely and now reject.  Your priorities will change as the vain traditions are revealed and you look back at all the time, energy, and resources you expended on vanity.  Your old way of thinking will be surgically and painfully removed out of your soul.   Yes, it will taste bitter when you are on the receiving end.  Enjoy!

    Psalm 46:4  There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
    The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.

    The Third Trumpet

    Monday, November 24th, 2014

    Revelation 8:10 Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.

    This great star represents Christ coming down from Heaven being imparted to the overcomers and for judgment of false doctrines.  Let’s go back to Revelation 2 and see the promise given:

    26 And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—

    ​27 ​‘​He shall rule them with a rod of iron;

    ​​They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’

    ​as I also have received from My Father; 28 and I will give him the morning star.

    The living Word, the manifested Christ is coming forth as a burning lamp to those who have ears to hear.  This is the same star that traveled from east to west guiding the wise men to the promise for all of mankind.  This great morning star is the promise of the full sun of righteousness announcing and bringing forth a new day.  This new day is the fullness of the revelation of Christ in our minds.  We will be empowered with the mind of Christ.

    “Burning like a torch (lamp)” directs us to Psalm 119:

    105 ​​Your word is a lamp to my feet

    ​​And a light to my path.

    Psalm 119 is broken up into sections by the Hebrew alphabet: 8 lines per letter, 22 letters resulting in 176 verses.  This verse is the beginning verse for the letter “Nun”.  This letter represents “a swarm of fish” and has a numeric value of fifty.  It can be written two ways- bent and straight.  These two nuns represent the two fundamental approaches to serving GOD: fear and love. The first person serves GOD out of awe, fear. Therefore, he is hunched over. The second person serves GOD out of love and thus stands straight. This person is also characterized by generosity, because love represents openness.  The Sons (153 fish, a swarm) receive a jubilee and serve FATHER both reverently and by Love.  The living Word, the lamp, lights the straight and narrow pathway that few are taking.  Others have taken the path lit by the bright lights of Babylon and their path leads to death and destruction.  The Great Star will judge the rivers and streams.

    What are these rivers and streams?  There are symbolic rivers and streams in Heaven which are different from those on earth.  Jesus speaks of waters flowing out of Heaven at the Feast of Tabernacles in John 7:

    37 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. 38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” 39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

    In addition, there is a river of Living Water flowing from the throne in Heaven:

    Revelation 22:1  1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

    This life flowing from Heaven is HIS Spirit and it flows from HIS throne through the Sons outward to mankind.  This Living Water represent Life and true revelation.  Anything less will turn bitter.  Doctrines, teachings, and philosophies of men’s lives will be judged.  False prophets promised many events which never occurred and thus they simply pointed to some occurrence as the fulfillment.  Science promised the war on cancer would be won but when?  Lyndon B. Johnson declared a war on poverty and announced it would be won quickly.  Years later there are more on government assistance than when he declared the war.  Men’s intellectual and fallible words act as rivers and streams of a lesser life.  Men “drink” from the 24 hour news channels in hope of being satisfied only to find their thirst remains.  Man’s opinions never fulfill anything but often serve to divert focus away from Truth.

    The pure river of Life is the only healing solution to mankind.  The Word of Life will turn men’s rivers to bitterness.  Jesus specifically reveals this star to us in Revelation 22:

    16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”

    HIS Body is being raised up to judge nations with a rod of iron.  What was once acceptable to those who are chosen is now found to be death.  Man’s church doctrines were sufficient for a time but without a future.  Yes it took time to allow sufficient inspection of the fruit but when the harvest was found lacking the apprehended ones continued their pursuit of the Rivers of Living Waters.  The waters of man’s wisdom, doctrines, creeds, and philosophies became bitter to the taste.  The apprehended ones will only be satisfied with the true living waters!

    Global Focus on Physical Gold

    Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

    At the end of this month, the Swiss will be voting on a referendum to move back toward a gold standard.  There have been many roadblocks by the elite to keep the facts from being presented to the public because they don’t want to lose control of the financial system.  You cannot manipulate the physical gold asset.  However, once you move to a fiat currency, lies and deceit are assured and it is only a matter of time before the masses lose value of their hard earned life savings.

    The Germans want to repatriate their gold back from the U.S. and have encountered much resistance.  Now the Dutch want their gold back and it is reported that 122 tons of gold are in process of transfer.  The Russians and the Chinese have been in a major acquisition mode month after month.  Physical gold is the one asset a country must have when its currency must be revamped.  This has been true throughout history and is expected to be realized again, and soon.  Over the last 100 years, the U.S. Dollar has lost 95% of its purchasing power when compared to gold and the other countries see the writing on the wall.

    I view the focus on gold and silver to be a “bridge” until a major Spiritual event occurs.  The problems throughout the world go beyond currency problems.  The thoughts and intents of men continue to cause the wars, famines, lawlessness, etc.  I must conclude that a major change is on the horizon and it will be Spiritual in nature.  Until then, we are to occupy and do business.  If we can’t feed our families, then it is tough to focus on deeper matters.  My family continues to invest in gold & silver assets (as funds allow), mostly undervalued stocks at this point.  Two weeks ago, the stocks were so depressed, I was able to modestly add to positions with some of the companies I believe in.  Stocks are riskier than possessing the the metal.  Each of us must decide what is best for sustaining us through the coming months and years if necessary.

    As I have said in the past: simplify, reduce and eliminate unproductive debt, and most of all focus on hearing FATHER.  HE will guide you through the challenging financial times ahead.  HE will also lead you in what assets to invest in.  When you submit to HIM, you don’t sweat the ups and downs of prices, knowing that HE has perfect knowledge of your future needs.
