The Second Trumpet

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

Revelation 8:8   Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. 9 And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

A great mountain represents a kingdom, government, rulership, or power.  John was seeing in the spiritual realm and saw that a great kingdom was being used for judgment.  In the Book of Isaiah, the prophet inspired by the Holy Spirit conveyed these words:

4:4   When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.

4:5   And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.

A great mountain burning with fire is the Kingdom of GOD coming forth in judgment and you can be assured it will overcome any and all obstacles that would prevent its intended result.  This mountain is exalted above all flesh and operates at a higher level of understanding than those dwelling in the sea of humanity, the fleshly nature.

Much has been written concerning the Book of Daniel and the various kingdoms of man rising forth.  These kingdoms were great in men’s eyes and spanned centuries.  They were called empires but we see how unsustainable they are in Daniel’s dream in Chapter 2:

34 You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces.

35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

“Chaff from the summer threshing floors” refers to the harvest at the end of the age of Pentecost.  In verse 44, Daniel goes on to say “the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.”  FATHER is going to judge and remove all lesser kingdoms which have been set up in our minds.  These kingdoms shall be struck down, ground into dust, be blown away and remembered no more.  HIS kingdom far exceeds any interest in a lesser kingdom and men will cease their pursuits to further counterfeit alternatives to such a great and magnificent reality, dominion, and rulership.  Why do you need to “nuke” the physical Jerusalem when you bring forth a new Jerusalem that removes any interest or focus of the old?  Loss of interest makes the old obsolete and of no value… it will be “no more”. 

The carnal nature of man is contained in the tumultuous sea and this great mountain was cast into this sea in order to kill.  A third of the living are dealt with by this second trumpet.  The Sons are the first of three groups to be addressed.  The “church” and the rest of mankind make up the other two thirds.  The nets of fish in the Gospels represented these three groups.  The 153 fish caught per instruction of Jesus in John 21 represents the Sons of GOD.  The second and third groups are seen in Luke 5:5-7.  Many were caught and placed in the boats, but a third group remained outside the boat and left swimming in the deep sea of carnal passion.

Ships are methods or tools of transferring goods from one location to another.  They are put in place as a system of transfer.  We use the Internet as a “ship” to transfer ideas, concepts, and information to others.  Ships are methods man has created  to transfer traditions, methods, philosophies, doctrines, and rules in order to govern the lives of others.  These ships govern the process and they are the systems man has put in place in lieu of submitting to Our Heavenly Father’s voice of governance.  These ships are destroyed when HIS kingdom comes down and is cast into the “sea”.  The systems of man cannot and will not remain when the standard of Love and Truth are raised up and presented for all to see.  We see other ships referenced later in Revelation 18 as the Babylonian system falls:

17 For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance 18 and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’

19 “They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’

20 “Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!”

The fire of judgment is bringing desolation to the current systems and methods we have trusted in.  Rejoice in their destruction!  Let only HIS plan, will, and purpose be established in our lives as we go forth to be a blessing to all mankind, no matter what our capacity.  The second trumpet will deal specifically with the nature and systems of the Elect.   Later, all of humanity’s ships will go through the same judgment.  The firstfruits’ judgment is a necessary part of the fulfillment of HIS plan of restoration.  Peter wrote of the necessity of judgment to begin with the called out ones:

1 Peter 4:16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter.

17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?

The Seven Trumpets

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

Isn’t the purpose of the entire 66 books of the Bible to bring forth the revelation of Jesus Christ?  Some focus on the Law, some on the prophets, and others solely on the New Testament.  If you really want to know Christ, you must consider all Scripture.  Wasn’t every word in Scripture inspired by the Holy Spirit?  If you want to know FATHER fully, you cannot throw out the Old Testament but instead understand it in context to the New.  Love requires judgment as well as grace and mercy.  Fire is a tool of judgment to destroy, not the whole man but the fleshly nature and this fleshly nature is removed by an act of Love.  Each trumpet refers to a specific word of judgment instituted by the FATHER of Love.  Let us understand this mystery.

Revelation 8:6 So the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

7 The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.

Water represents the living Word of GOD by the Holy Spirit.  Hail represent a “hard” word of judgment, fire refers to processing of judgment, and blood denotes life.  Destruction is coming by the blast of this first trumpet and we are being put on notice.

Isaiah 28:17  Also I will make justice the measuring line,
And righteousness the plummet;
The hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,
And the waters will overflow the hiding place.

This judgment will expose the lies held and retained inside of us by our carnal nature.  These lies hinder us from moving up to a higher level.  They are words of compromise that have rooted themselves deep, some even based on Scripture taken out of context and used to serve a carnal purpose or intent.  Isn’t that what the Pharisees did who challenged Jesus?  They knew the “acts” of FATHER but did not know HIS ways thus they used Scripture to exalt themselves by control and manipulation.  The faith movement would have us believe that only the grace and mercy of FATHER’S right arm would prevail in our lives.  However Our Heavenly Father is not a “one-armed” GOD.  HIS left arm of judgment is required in our maturing process to remove the false ideas, doctrines, interpretations, half-truths, and philosophies we have deeply rooted in us.  It you don’t think you’re subject to HIS left arm of judgment, you’re kidding yourself.  Hebrews 12:

5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:

​​​“My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD,

​​Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;

6 ​​For whom the LORD loves He chastens,

​​And scourges every son whom He receives.”

7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? 8 But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.

Fire mingled with blood represents the burning process resulting in life by the blood of Christ.  Death is not the end result for HIS blood is being sent with this judgment to assure us of sustaining life after judgment.  We are transformed!

Trees have deep roots and stand tall.  They produce fruit that must be judged.  Unfruitful tress represent those deep rooted carnal views which have grown unchallenged over the years.  They have become traditions of thought that have misguided many.  There may have been omissions of THE WORD in order to allow carnal thinking and resulting acts to continue.  Your carnal man responds with a “wink and a nod” convincing you that your current path is fully justified.  These tall and majestic trees must be judged and thrown in the fire.  Doctrines born out of the carnal nature will be exposed to the complete truth in Love and removed in order that you will not be placed in the “illegitimate” son category.

Grass covers the ground and provides a perception of beauty.  Man’s carnal nature has masqueraded his intent with illusions, perceptions, and misdirection.  Men project themselves to others with devices both tangible and intangible in order to deceive, convince, or compel satisfying responses.  Just under the surface, the ugliness of the carnal nature resides in turmoil and insufficiency.  These men are not at peace.  When the grass is burned up, the illusions and perceptions are exposed.  Truth is the standard of judgment and everything below the surface will be compared to the Truth.  Only then will the removal process begin.

Luke 12:50  49 “I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am till it is accomplished! 51 Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division.”

Jesus spoke of the necessity of sending fire to the earth.  Fire will divide.  John the Baptist understood what was coming when he spoke ““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.”

The Day of Pentecost brought an “earnest” of fire.  This fire looked like cloven tongues which sat upon them.  There is a greater fire required for the full baptism of the Sons.  This fire is to be seven times hotter in order to produce the spiritual perfection of Love.  This all consuming fire will remove anything unclean, impure, corruptible, and unacceptable in HIS sight.  Judgment and cleansing must come to the Sons.  The refiner’s fire of HIS Presence will not allow anyone with less than a pure heart to see HIM.  These are the ones who wear the white robes of righteousness around the throne.  No pain, no gain.  Let the trumpet blow!

The Transition of Authority

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Revelation 8:1  And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.

The steps to Spiritual maturity are now complete and the Sons have been named.  How appropriate is it to have a time of contemplation, reverence, and to be totally awestruck by the momentous event all of creation has been awaiting- the impartation of power and authority to the Sons.  The silence brings all into unity awaiting the next event:

2  And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.

Before the sounding of the trumpets, the High Priest Jesus Christ brings forth the prayers of the saints and presents them in the Holy of Holies:

3  Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

4  And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand.

The intercession for the saints is now complete and corrective judgment is about to be manifested on earth.  The seven angels have been readied to bring forth the trumpets.  Heaven was silenced in complete reverence and unity for this event at hand.  The incense provides a sweet smelling fragrance acceptable to FATHER.  This is accomplished by the SPIRIT making intercession on our behalf.  It comes forth by the purity of fire and bespeaks of judgment against the unrighteous and lawless so the captives may be set free.  Our Mediator is presenting the prayers to be answered and acted upon in the fullness of time.  The trumpets are now lifted and ready.

5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake.

The fire from the altar brings forth the corrective judgments of FATHER to all the earth and it will be global in nature.

Hebrews 12:29  For our God is a consuming fire.

When the thunderings are released, they represent voices with power and authority and the Sons are now speaking only the Words they hears the FATHER say.  Full empowerment has been released as a result of the prayers ascending to the Throne for the bringing forth of the Sons’ manifestation on earth.  The lightnings represent the illumination of Truth and Love imparted to the earth by the Sons and as a result an earthquake shakes up and fully exposes the carnality of mankind all around the globe.  All of the foundations of men are shaken by this impartation of power, authority, and revelation.  This is done at the personal level as well at the corporate level for no aspect of creation is left out.

Fire is the agent of purification and transformation, not everlasting judgment as has been preached over and over in the past as fear tactics to keep people in submission to their church leaders.  Yes, they may have been sincere in their preaching but they were sincerely wrong.  The revelation of Love was the missing ingredient.  Pause and think about it.  This fire from Heaven was “kindled” at the Day of Pentecost when flames of fire sat upon them.  That was the beginning but now we are coming to the culmination of the Age when the fire being cast down from Heaven will be all consuming.  Jesus spoke of this progression in Luke 12:

49 “I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! (Day of Pentecost) 50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am (death at the Cross) till it is accomplished.”

He is the firstfruit of the firstfruits and prepared the way to bring forth cloven tongues of fire (the Comforter) on the Day of Pentecost.  This began the procession to bring forth the Sons for a full harvest at the end of the Age resulting in a fire being cast down from Heaven with full power, authority, and illumination.  The foundations built by men will come tumbling down by the force of the resulting earthquake.  Men’s authority will fall away as the true authority from Heaven is revealed among the Sons.

This fire from Heaven represents the Love, Truth, and righteousness of FATHER.  It is cast into our “earth” to individually purify us by removing all the dross from our soul.  It will shake up all of our past doctrines, views, philosophies, and biases and release them to be consumed in HIS fire.  We must embrace this purging and be willing to change.  Our trust in HIM allows us to make the choice without any fear of failure. the unknown, or true loss.  The Sons must be separated from any hindrance that would prevent the fullness of their calling to come forth.  They will be pure in heart and shall see FATHER for who HE is, the GOD of Love and HE will truly consume all the impurities keeping us from our Divine intent.  Now is the time for the transition of authority to come into full focus.  I must change and you must change, so embrace the change rather than defending an un-defendable position.  My choice is to embrace change that I be chosen.

Behold, A Great Multitude

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Revelation 7:9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,

10 and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”

The angels, the twenty-four elders, and the four living creatures were around the throne fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,  saying:

“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,

​​Thanksgiving and honor and power and might,

​​Be to our God forever and ever.


What a marvelous and glorious sight.  These first three groups surround the throne of Jesus and in the outer circle a great multitude encompasses them.  Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?  One of the elders asks John and his response is “Sir, you know”.  When a question in Heaven is posed, be assured the answer is already known.  The elder has the Mind of Christ.  He replies:

“These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them.

16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat;

17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

This great multitude are those who followed the false systems of man.  They were mentioned in Revelation Chapter two when describing the corrupt church who committed adultery with Jezebel (the religious realm of Christianity), the prophetess.  Their souls went after false idols and did not repent.  They were too busy following after illusions of false ministry.  It was necessary for them to suffer through the great tribulation and go through the fiery furnace to burn away the wood, hay, and stubble.  Failure to repent necessitated a judgment corresponding to the situation.  However they still ended up encompassing the throne, just a little further from the center.  This great tribulation was experienced by those who ended up in Heaven, not the world as many false prophets have proclaimed in the past.  They repented. 

The process of tribulation (a pressing, pressing together, pressure) is specifically designed by FATHER to separate the chaff from the wheat.  The wheat had to be threshed at the end of the age for the harvest to be complete.  The old nature needed removal and there were deep-rooted doctrines and beliefs that had to be brought to the surface and exposed.  Traditions of men found their way into the hearts of this great multitude yet Our Heavenly Father in HIS great grace and mercy delivered them out of their old nature and restored them to a place around the throne.  That is extremely good news!

The Melchizedek priesthood, the Sons of Love, were tasked with bringing in the great multitudes that John could not number for the gathering was so great and out of every nation, kindred, people, and tongue!  First, the Sons (firstfruits)  are redeemed and secondly, the “church” (wheat harvest) is redeemed.  HIS Love is greater than any hindrance, tradition, doctrine, idol, philosophy, or any other man-created system for ultimately their blindness is removed and their tears are wiped away.

The robes of this multitude are washed and made white in the blood of the Lamb.  “To be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen” refers to the righteous acts of the saints.  The ministry of the Sons brought forth this great harvest.  What will be the first sign that the Sons have become “operational”?  I believe when we experience a full and complete healing and restoration, a sign of putting on incorruption.  There will be no sickness or disease found among the Sons as they go forth and minister.  This incorruption will flow outward and their bodies will fully respond and submit to the incorruptible nature now fully manifested.  What a glorious event!  They too will be without spot or wrinkle.

This great multitude will be waving palm branches of victory.  In the wilderness, the children of Israel were confronted with bitter waters at Marah.  The waters needed to be “healed”.  FATHER responded:

For I am the LORD who heals you.”

27 Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve wells of water and seventy palm trees; so they camped there by the waters.

This event prophesies of the nations being healed where the Divine government (twelve wells of water) resides.  Elim means “palms” or victory over Marah (bitterness).

Does this reflect some eternal damnation preached from countless pulpits around the world?  Does this speak of “jihad”?  No, this speaks of the result of the Divine Intent of FATHER’S Love.  Behold, A great multitude is around the Throne!

The Twelve Tribes

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Twelve is the number of Divine government found throughout Scripture.  When the seventh seal is opened, the twelve tribes representing the 144,000 are sealed.  This involves the naming of the Sons or the changing of the nature and character into the fullness of Christ.  The entire Divine government rests on the shoulders of Christ:

Isaiah 9:6 

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Each tribe’s name represented a specific character trait distinct from the others.  Throughout Scripture the names of the tribes are listed but not always in the same sequence.  The last son born to Israel (formerly Jacob) was Benjamin whose name means “ the son of my right hand”.  His name represents the fullness of maturity and represents our position with FATHER located on the side of grace and mercy.

Revelation 7:4 And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:

​5 ​​of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed;

​​of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed;

​​of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed;

6 ​​of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed;

​​of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed;

​​of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed;

7 ​​of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed;

​​of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed;

​​of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed;

8 ​​of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed;

​​of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed;

​​of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed.

You will notice the tribe of Dan was excluded from the list.  The character of his name was revealed in Genesis 49:

16 ​​“Dan shall judge his people ​​As one of the tribes of Israel.

17 ​​Dan shall be a serpent by the way, ​​A viper by the path, t​That bites the horse’s heels s​So that its rider shall fall backward.

Dan is associated with the serpent who is being judged.  Out of the serpent’s mouth is venom that brings death and destruction.  A judge who fails to bring forth righteousness becomes a critic and condemner of everyone else.  A viper or “adder” means to bruise, crush, seize, or strike out.  This characteristic will not be found among the Sons.  In Leviticus 22, the priests are instructed on which offerings are not acceptable:

24  ‘You shall not offer to the LORD what is bruised or crushed, or torn or cut; nor shall you make any offering of them in your land.”

The character of Dan would not be an acceptable living sacrifice thus this characteristic is excluded from the list.  His name has been blotted out.  Levi replaced Dan in the list.  His name means “joined to, unity”.  How appropriate that the unity with Christ has replaced the death and destruction caused by the mouth of the serpent.

Jesus Christ is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and  He is the “firstborn among many brethren” hence this tribe is mentioned first.  Our sonship begins with Jesus Christ.  Judah means “to give thanks, to praise, to consecrate, to confess", the first step in salvation.

Reuben means “behold a son”.  We have been chosen, quickened, and raised up as a son.  Yet immature, this is the beginning.

Gad means “to overcome, fortune has come”.  We will learn to overcome every challenge, enemy, test, and trial unto the end.

Asher means “happy and blessed”.

Naphtali means “to wrestle”.

Manasseh means “causing to forget”.

Simeon means “to hear, listen, understand”.

Levi means “joined to”.

Issachar means “there is recompense, to receive a reward”.

Zebulun means “exalted, dwelling, habitation”.

Joseph means “Jehovah has added (or is adding) another son".

Benjamin means "son of the right hand".

We behold the glory of sonship in the Lion of the tribe of Judah and receive the call.  Next we behold a son.  Our third step is to enter into training and overcome all obstacles.  We begin to experience the Joy of THE LORD, we are happy because our true and sustaining joy is full!  We then wrestle ourselves away from the mind and body, ascending the mountain to higher levels in the Spiritual realm.  As our mind is renewed, FATHER causes us “to forget” the old ways of the carnal man leading to death.  We are being transformed and the old things are passing away to be forgotten.  We are putting off our former manner and now we hear, listen, and understand OUR FATHER and are guided by HIS Words.  These first seven names represent steps to spiritual maturity as Sons, the seventh being hearing, listening, understanding, and responding in accordance to HIS Word.  In the past I have heard people proclaim they are of one tribe or the other.  I say to you the Sons represent the culmination of the characteristics of all tribes!

The number eight represents new beginnings and it is appropriate that the priesthood as depicted by the character of Levi is listed as the eighth.  Our spirit and soul are being joined to one another in marriage, they are now in the unity of Love.  Once this has happened, we now receive a reward of Spiritual blessings, far exceeding any physical blessing we asked for as immature children.  We will be recompensed the full reward for the laying down of the old nature.  We will then be exalted to inhabit the high calling of Sonship.  Jehovah will have added another son and the son will be “named” the Son of the right hand!

Benjamin represents the culmination of the maturing process seen through the characteristics of the 12 tribes.  His birth is described by “travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.”   All of creation groans for the fulfillment of this twelfth son to be fully birthed.  Just as Jerusalem was located in the territory of Benjamin in the Old Testament, the New Jerusalem is inhabited by the Sons of HIS right hand.  As Stephen beheld in Acts 7:

55 But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God,

56 and said, “Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!”

Our place has been reserved by our Elder Brother… at HIS Right Hand.  We now read from Paul’s epistle:

Colossians 3:1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

PS- The numeric value of Lazarus is 144.  He was raised from the dead at Bethany.  Could this be tied to the raising of Sons whose carnal nature died?  1,000 is the number for “glory of GOD” or completeness.   Hmmm!

The Seventh Seal of Full Maturity

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Jude 14 Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying,

“Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, 15 to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”

The name “Enoch” means dedicated and trained and refers to the Sons.  How appropriate that the seventh from Adam prophesied about the Sons coming forth at the end of the Age.  These are the ones who have been dedicated and are being trained to bring forth righteous judgment on the earth.  Their assignment is to manifest the hope of glory for all mankind to see and respond.  Paul speaks of this transformation in Philippians 3:

20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,

21 who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.

This transformation will not occur by our individual abilities but we are given the responsibility to present our bodies as Holy and acceptable, living sacrifices.  Let HIS fiery Word consume us resulting in the death of the carnal nature.  It is HIS power that will transform our lowly bodies, yet it is our decision to pursue the path of the “chosen”.  Jesus told the rich young ruler to sell all, give to the poor, and follow Him.  There is a cost associated with following the way into Sonship and most are unwilling to pay the price.  We are called to Love FATHER and to Love our neighbor yet most are not even willing to walk in Love.  If you fail to purse the full revelation of Love, how can you qualify to represent HIS Love to the rest of the world?  Love isn’t just one attribute of HIS character as is wisdom, understanding, grace, and mercy.  It is the source and intent that encompasses these other attributes.  Don’t undervalue Love in your pursuit of HIS Character.  If you do, you will not ascend into full maturity but instead will move toward frustration in dealing with others.  Through Love, Jesus saw the potential of the ungodly who did not deserve mercy.

The number four represents all of creation and the angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth are given the task to withhold the fullness of judgment until the Sons are fully sealed.  This global judgment is not for a full and final catastrophic event of a physical nature.  Better yet it is for a cataclysm of a carnal nature.  Millions and billions of people will die to the flesh in the end, and… they will live unto Christ!  That my friend is extremely good news.  The rivers of Living water will flow forth for the healing all of mankind.  Those Living waters will flow down from the Kingdom of GOD WHO is in our spirit, those of us who are sealed among the 144,000:

Revelation 7:2 Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea,

3 saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”

4 And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:

This group of Sons are HIS instruments to bring forth salvation unto the earth.  The River of Life will flow through this Remnant, those who have been called before they were formed in the womb.  They have been drawn to the revelation of their calling.  The mere fact you are reading these words at this time may indicate you are being called.  The question remains whether you will answer the call to be chosen or whether you will allow the things of this world to draw your focus away from the greatest opportunity being unveiled before our very eyes.  You must set aside the apparent rigidity of the current system in place and understand that in an instant everything can and will change.  Those who live along the coast of California are aware that at any time, a devastating earthquake could occur; not if, but when.  I am fully persuaded that even a greater shaking will occur throughout the four corners of the earth and it will result in the final seal being placed on the foreheads of the 144,000.

This seventh seal is the Mind of Christ!  The angel ascending from the east represents a new day has dawned for mankind and the current system will be blackened by the bright light of this day.  This will be the day when equal weights and measures will truly be fulfilled by the balance of judgment versus grace and mercy.  All the perversions of the current world will be exposed and “weighed” in the balance.  Men will fall down in despair as their hearts are revealed and look up into the eyes of Love who will restore them to Our Heavenly Father.  Yes there will be pain as the Word completes the surgery to remove the fleshly nature of man but in the end, the mass must be cut out so healing can begin.  This will spread into the “healing of nations” spoken of in Revelation 22:2.

This group of 144,000 will have the anointing of priest, king, and judge.  With this anointing they will discern the true nature of things and be able to judge righteously.  The anointing of the king will enable them to rule in an appropriate, life-giving fashion.  As an anointed priest, the Sons will walk in that unconditional Love, mercy, and compassion with the message of full restoration.  The angel ascending in the east is the message of Christ arising into the fullness of a new day expressed in the Sons AND with the empowerment to walk in these three aspects of CHRIST’S anointing.  This is the nature of Christ being sealed in us!  This seal is the seal of THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY and represents HIS power and authority over all the earth and its inhabitants.  This is given to those who will fully represent HIS Character of Love and the express image of HIS Son.  This is not a seal of protection but one of qualification.  The power sourced from Heaven needs no protection from the surrogate power of carnal men’s devices, plots, schemes, and systems. 

This seal assures us of the having HIS wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and skill to carry out the mandate from Heaven.  The name “Israel” represents a change of nature from “supplanter, deceiver, manipulator” to “Prince who has the power of GOD”.  The twelve tribes of Israel point specifically to the naming and calling of the sons.  The naming of the Sons represents the transition from chosen to being named as an inheritor with the qualifications being met.  The new name represents the new nature.  The self-nature has been eradicated and the new nature has been given to us by HIS Spirit, a true and complete transformation to glorification where the old things are passed away, behold all things have become new.  The 144,000 is not a number, it represents a new nature, a fulfillment of the change of nature as demonstrated when Jacob saw the FACE of GOD and his nature was changed resulting in a name change.  Full maturity is at hand!

The Sealing of the Sons

Sunday, November 16th, 2014

Seven is the number of Spiritual perfection or maturity.  Interestingly enough, the seventh seal begins in the seventh chapter of Revelation:

1 After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.

2 Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea,

3 saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”

4 And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed

We now see the result of the first six seals- a mature group of people who have accepted their callings and received the necessary preparation resulting in mature “sons”.  These Sons are now being identified and they are being “sealed”.

There is a judgment yet to come over all the earth.  The winds of judgment will be held back until the sealing of the Sons is completed.  This global judgment will affect all of humanity as represented by the sea, the earth, and the trees.  These trees at a corporate level represent the lives of men and their roots represent all of what they are grounded in.  Their views, perceptions, philosophies, religions, activities, priorities, and doctrines will be subject to judgment.  The sea refers to our fleshly cravings, appetites, lusts, and evil.  The earth represents our soul where the mind, will, and emotions reside.  This earth is where the systems of this world grow from and produce trees of this nature.  Men’s thinking ultimately result in views, traditions, and doctrines.  Any thoughts from this level will be subject to judgment.

Throughout Scripture trees are noted to be judged based on their fruit, their usefulness to mankind.  There are three fundamental aspects of the tree mentioned: the fruit, the leaves, the main structure.  In the book of Ezekiel, sustaining trees or men will function as indicated in the following verse:

Ezekiel 47:12  “Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.”

These Sons will bring forth life and healing in all manner.  These sons will not fail but bring forth the greater works Jesus proclaimed.  In contrast, the trees on earth will be judged accordingly and the works will be tossed in the fire reserved for all that originates from man’s thinking apart from Truth and Love.

Holding back the four winds of the earth is an indication that judgment will not arrive until the Sons are fully prepared.  This judgment is restrained by the Divine Intent of FATHER out of HIS Love for mankind.  HE will not allow judgment to come until HE presents the path to righteousness for men to access.  Just as Joseph was prepared ahead of the seven year famine, the Sons are being prepared ahead of the judgment of all the earth.

Being sealed in the forehead denotes putting on the Mind of Christ.  Without the Mind of Christ, no man is truly qualified to be a righteous judge.  Jesus explained THE FATHER’S assignment of this power to judge in John 5:

20 For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.

21 For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will.

22 For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son,

Let’s face it, the world needs judgment.  Wars, corruption, exploitation of the helpless, self-serving leaders, damage to the environment, murderers, sexual perversion, and the list goes on and on.  But the Love of Our Heavenly Father will not allow a full and complete judgment to occur until HE has provided for a complete solution to mankind’s problems: the empowered Sons!  Oh how great is HIS LOVE for us!  Men will learn a new song of salvation as proclaim:

Isaiah 26:9 ​​With my soul I have desired You in the night,

​​Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early;

​​For when Your judgments are in the earth,

​​The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

Deliverance will come through the Sons.  All of mankind will received the expressed Love from HIS Divine Intent to reconcile and restore all men.  The empty and unfruitful illusions will be wiped away and all will see the vanity of men’s pursuits apart from HIM.  HIS nature will be fully imparted into the Sons just as HIS nature was reflected by Jesus Christ.  This day of judgment will truly be a glorious day, not a day to dread.  All the inhabitants will learn righteousness and we will all express our gratitude to FATHER for that to occur.  Psalm 96 expresses this reality in a most glorious fashion:

10 ​​Say among the nations, “The LORD reigns;

​​The world also is firmly established,

​​It shall not be moved;

​​He shall judge the peoples righteously.”

​11 ​​Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;

​​Let the sea roar, and all its fullness;

12 ​​Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it.

​​Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice 13 before the LORD.

​​For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth.

​​He shall judge the world with righteousness,

​​And the peoples with His truth.


The “Deliverers” are being prepared, rejoice!

The Great Day of Their Wrath

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

Revelation 6:17  “for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?"  NASB

The wrath of the Lamb from verse 16 is brought forth to become plural in verse 17.  This represents the Sons being motivated by Love bringing forth righteous and corrective judgment with great passion.  It is not inspired by carnal thinking resulting in killing, maiming, and punishing for an eternity.  The motivation is always based on restoration.  It is always a just response to lawlessness.

HIS wrath is an enforcement of Love with intense passion and desire.  When you are lawless you must be corrected and your path must change even if your ego wants to put up resistance.  The greater the resistance, the greater the offsetting wrath to overcome this lawlessness.  Does any loving parent allow the rebellious child to win out?  A resounding NO!  The child’s long-term welfare is as stake and you must “break” the rebellious will of the child for his or her own good… out of love.

Physical death may be required to arrest the path toward destruction.  Paul speaks of this when sexual immorality was brought to his attention in the church at Corinth:

1 Corinthians 5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5 deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

Destruction of the flesh will simply mean your full restoration will occur after physical death and not before.  In the terms of the eternal, that is really not a great issue.

The result of the wrath of the Lamb is full restoration, not destruction.  Love brings forth unity and anything hindering the process will be removed by wrath if necessary.  It will be that passion with strength behind it each of us will experience from OUR LOVING FATHER.  If necessary, you will hold down your child while the splinter is removed from his finger thus eliminating further pain, infection, and inflammation from occurring.  Some may call it tough Love but whatever terminology you wish to describe it, there must be precise measures to correct the path and move you away from destruction.  In the end you will learn righteousness and look back at the need for correction and wrath.

“Who is able to stand?” is the question posed with the answered already known.  Nobody will rise above and be independent of HIS correction.  All of creation must submit to the laws FATHER established before the earth was formed.  The created are never greater or independent of the CREATOR.  Those who think that they can get away with lawlessness are simply living a life of illusion.  A day of reckoning will come for every person ever born on this earth.  The only question is “when”, not “if”.  It will not be a time of extreme fear but instead will be a time of full disclosure.  Our tears will be wiped away as we see the overpowering Love of THE FATHER in spite of all our failings.  HIS wrath as applied by the Lamb and the Sons will be the most positive aspect of Love the lawless could comprehend.  Guilt will turn to gratitude and fear will dissipate from the hearts of all.  The Sons realize the need and fully embrace all the correction needed to deal with the old man.  They are “all in”.  The chose to be chosen.

The sixth seal completes the preparation of the Sons.  All aspects of the carnal nature, the ego, the former priorities, doctrines, half-truths, and any other hindrance have been exposed and dealt with.  The Sons are now ready for the seventh and final seal to be “opened”.

Mis-taken Identity

Friday, November 14th, 2014

Revelation 6:15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains,

16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!

17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

Each one of us identifies himself with something, someone, or a group of people.  Who am I?  This is a question asked by most everyone as they mature to a level when they question their relevance on the earth.  All of us have walked around with a mistaken identity.  We have all walked as sons of Adam.

Genesis 3:8 And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

9 Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”

10 So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

Ever since that fateful day men having been hiding themselves from Our Heavenly Father.  They have been deceived in their blindness to the Love and Truth of Our Heavenly Father.  The number of man is “six” and in the sixth seal, there are six types of men who hide themselves from the results of the opening of this seal.  Why?  Their world is ending!

1.  The Kings of the earth are the rulers of the flesh.  “A ruler who lacks understanding is a great oppressor”.  This represents the law of sin and death that rules over us until we have been delivered.

2.  Great men represent those are seemingly “good”.  They have pleasant  dispositions, character, qualities, and attributes.  They are esteemed by men and honored by the world as examples for others to live by.  They are exalted to greatness and admired, a subtle aspect of the ego.

3.  Rich men are men who have great power by virtue of their wealth.  They have this deep conviction that they are special and set apart because of ascending to power due to their wealth.  Others look at them with great admiration and believe that if they get close to the person, some of that wealth will rub off on them too.  Their wealth is often acquired by the world’s knowledge and wisdom.  The result of this wealth is power, fame, and prestige which comprise the “values” of the carnal man.

4.  Commanders and mighty men represent those habits, practices, ways, and traditions that are entrenched in each of us.  They will fight to retain the status quo and won’t give up easily.  This stubborn nature is difficult to overcome, and does not easily yield to change.  They are loyal to the old man and will resist giving up ground.

5.  “Every slave” represents your enslavement to sin, religion, spiritual deception and pride.  These captives are oppressed of the devil and Jesus came to set the captives free.

6.  “Every free man” refers to the ego or “self”.   The ego considers itself free from the bondage, enslavement, or service to anyone.  It believes itself to be fully independent of rule.  It is the “I will” of the carnal mind.  Isaiah 14:14  “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High!”.  Paul speaks of the two “I’s” warring inside each of us.

All of these represent the enemies of Christ and hide themselves in darkness when the sixth seal is broken.  These are the identities that men have hidden in the caves rather than die to the flesh.  The systems of men have been created to promote these six types.  Their complexity grows day by day to further the bondage in each strata.  Any challenge to the current system of thought is met with extreme resistance.  These systems all have Adam as their origin when he chose death over life in the garden.  You can run but you can’t hide from the Love of FATHER.  HIS wrath is toward carnality and lawlessness, nothing else.  HE will restore you by HIS irresistible Love.  HIS judgments are just for the blood of Christ is sufficient to cover all sin, not just 5% of mankind.  Love never fails!  Each category of men will be dealt with accordingly and each heart will be exposed to the brightness of HIS coming.  All will be purged by the fire of HIS Word.

When HE is fully revealed to us, each of us will lay down our mistaken identity.  Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess: Jesus is LORD of Lords and KING of Kings.  We then become identified as Sons and take on HIS identity.
