The Counterfeit Path

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Revelation 13:11  Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.

12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.

Counterfeit means:  made in exact imitation of something valuable or important with the intention to deceive or defraud.   In the above passage, horns represent power and this power is made to look like the power of the lamb.  It is made to look like it is GOD-given and it is “like”  but not truly a lamb thus it is a deception.

The beasts in Revelation 13 represent systems, organizations, institutions, movements, and governments and they are all influenced by the spirit of antichrist.  They may have started out with good intentions but any revelation has been replaced with watered down tradition.  I am reminded that FATHER kept moving the children in the wilderness forty-one times before the final move into the Promised Land.  They were not to build permanent houses but instead were to follow the Presence of FATHER from place to place.  This speaks of being pliable as FATHER moves us to greater revelation.  Are you still hanging on to old manna that has gone stale?  We must move when FATHER moves for when HIS Glory departs, we too must depart.  Twenty-seven months ago, FATHER told us to begin a Bible Study Broadcast.  We covered the four books published by this Ministry.  For 102 broadcasts we remained faithful to HIS Word.  Now that phase is completed.  We must move on for there is no sense in having a broadcast without HIS anointing on it.  It would just be a social gathering under the pretense of imparting greater revelation.  Those 102 broadcasts represented a time of expansion but now we are in a time of compression in order that the next greater expansion may come forth.

How many organizations do you know of that have lost their purpose?  Are they still around simply to perpetuate their system and provide themselves jobs?  Has the original vision been lost?  The genuine is replaced with the counterfeit.  Isn’t fiat currency simply a counterfeit to gold-backed money?  How long will the system of fiat currency last?  Once the masses see that the fiat system is effectively counterfeit and has no true value, it will collapse.  Mystery Babylon relies on the perception of value represented by fiat currency to retain its power.  It is a huge Ponzi scheme destined to destroy the savings of the multitude.  It currently only has power and authority because it has been given or transferred this power by the masses.

1 Corinthians 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.

2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able;

3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?

4 For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal?

The above passage speaks of the divisions of the carnal nature promoting separate organizations.  This is what the carnal man does.  On the other hand, Love unifies.  Paul reveals that spiritually immature people will be moved by their carnal nature and promote divisions which ultimately turn into organizations and finally into institutions.  As this occurs, competition arises to feed the ego, proclaiming to be better than the others and promoting further division.  This ultimately spirals down to submitting to the second beast who preys on the soulish realm of man and then men walk according to their soulish nature.  The result- organizations, systems, and governments, none of them fulfilling the true need of the people.  Got a problem?  Let’s enact another law!

How many more denominations will rise out of the second beast?  How many more governments will be formed being motivated by this second beast?  There is only one GOD and there need be only one government!  Why expend unnecessary energy forming a counterfeit?  Why not pursue FATHER and know that HE will intervene in your life and replace the counterfeit with the genuine.  Being religious is not being Christ-like.  Neither a robe nor a collar makes one spiritual.

Two horns are a counterfeit to the seven horns seen in the midst of the Throne in Heaven:

Revelation 5:6  And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.

The number two refers to division whereas the number seven represents Spiritual maturity.  The second beast has divisive power and unity will not be found among those who follow after the beast.  Where there is division, it is life-draining for none will provide others with supply.  Scarcity is promoted as a way of life and competition for resources is encouraged, often resulting in war.

Being ‘like” a lamb denotes an outward presentation of being Christian.  This refers to being religious without the Love.  The Pharisees knew the Law but had no revelation of Love for the people.  They were interested in promoting their own agendas at the expense of the people.  Should we build another bigger building?  The lamb nature speaks of a meek, nonaggressive nature but the beast is like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.  On the outside there is an appearance of a non-threatening nature but on the inside there is a “take no prisoner” attitude and intent.  The beast is a counterfeit to the Truth.  This beast speaks like a dragon thus speaking forth great lies and deception.  It is no longer subtle like the serpent but now is spewing forth lies continuously.  It is consistently convincing us it has the answer that will fix the current system and it just needs a little more time and money.  The Love of the Truth is not in the mouths of those following the path of the beast.

On a personal level, we must not submit to the soulish carnal nature but instead focus on Christ and His Love.  Jesus is the Horn of our salvation as revealed in Luke 1:

67 Now his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying:

​68 ​​“Blessed is the Lord God of Israel,

​​For He has visited and redeemed His people,

69 ​​And has raised up a horn of salvation for us

​​In the house of His servant David,

70 ​​As He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets,

​​Who have been since the world began,

71 ​​That we should be saved from our enemies

​​And from the hand of all who hate us,

The beast is our enemy has his two horns represent derivative power obtained by deception.  The creative power of FATHER is what delivers and redeems us.  Let the water of HIS Word bring forth the good fruit to be harvested.  Without water the fruit will not mature and as I study this Fifth Gospel I can sense the growth occurring.  I am being strengthened as I dwell on HIS Word and HIS Love.  The process may seem slow at times but the maturing process must have patience associated with it.  We are being perfected as we are finally dispelling the religious views of this Fifth Gospel and are finally seeing HIS Love interspersed throughout these chapters.  HIS Plan has been enveloped in the mysteries contained therein and has been put in plain sight for men to overlook due to their carnal nature.  The Truth is obvious once you see it and the counterfeit path is easy to detect once you know the genuine.

The Second Beast

Friday, January 30th, 2015

The first beast came from the sea of humanity, then arose a second beast from the earth:

Revelation 13:11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.

12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

The “earth” represents the mind, will, and emotion (soul) whereas the “sea” represents the flesh.  The first beast arises out of our carnal nature and draws us down the path of death.  If the first beast isn’t enough to deal with, now the second beast comes onto the scene.  Both represent “anti-Christ” but neither are actually described in that fashion.  I have read many books, listened to many evangelists, and watched several programs describing the antichrist.  It is interesting to find that only the Beloved Disciple John mentions the term “Antichrist” in his epistles.  The term is not found elsewhere:

1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.

19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.

21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.

23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

1 John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,

3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

2 John 1:7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

There you have it, the four times this term is mentioned in Scripture yet thousands of sermons have exalted this term to be “god-like”.  The term simply means “in opposition to Christ”.  In 1 John, the fourth chapter, we see where Love is explicitly attached to being born of FATHER and knowing FATHER:

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

If the writer of this Epistle and also the book of Revelation makes such an emphatic statement about the importance of Love, we must not let the second beast convince us otherwise.  The mind wants to be in control by using logic to place our spirit into submission.  When this occurs we have difficulty in hearing FATHER.  The noise created by the mind and the external will drown out our ability to hear that “still small Voice”.

The antichrist is not a specific world leader although many of them have attempted to move our focus away from Jesus Christ and FATHER.  Many have exalted themselves above Christ but nonetheless they are not THE antichrist.  The antichrist is any spiritual attempt to redirect us away from Christ in any form or fashion.  The target includes your flesh and your mind.  I have seen men whose Love waxed cold and began to dilute the power of Christ in their thinking by using derivative logic as a basis of their position.  They are accessing the world’s wisdom, not FATHER’S.  I am amazed that men can’t even look up at the stars and planets and realize the flaws in their logic!  It is tragic to see those who once had Love in their hearts grow cold and submit to their earthly mind.  When men submit to worldly thinking of others they end up on the path toward destruction:

Isaiah 3:12  “​​As for My people, children (flesh) are their oppressors,

​​And women (soul) rule over them.

​​O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err,

​​And destroy the way of your paths.”

By allowing the mind to deceive you into believing the antichrist is some world leader, you will not deal with the true source of the problem… your soul!  Instead of being led by THE SPIRIT, you will be led by the soul- the mind, will, and emotions.  Your mind needs to serve you, not the reverse.  It is okay to build up your mind but not at the expense of your spirit.  This is why that the highly intelligent tend to have a difficult time in receiving Christ in their hearts.  Their logic convinces them otherwise.  We are not to be ignorant or uninformed of the devices and deception of the spirit of antichrist which motivates the second beast:.

1 Peter 1:13   Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

14  as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance;

15  but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct,

16  because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

If FATHER says we can be holy… then we can be holy.  There is nothing the second beast can do about that!

Overcoming the Opposition

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

Revelation 13: 9   If anyone has an ear, let him hear.

10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

The carnal man put us into captivity and has had us on the path to death and destruction.  That “man” must be placed in captivity and kept from any further impact on our lives.  Our carnal man must be “killed” with the sword of THE SPIRIT.  When that happens, the captives are set free.  Jesus expressed it in Luke 4:18-19:

“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to
the poor;
He has sent Me
to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to
the blind,
set at liberty those who are oppressedTo proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”

Once we receive the revelation of Love, the beast in us makes war.  You can be sure anytime you receive a major revelation from FATHER, it will be challenged right away.  If you are mature, you will not be moved by the challenge but those of lesser degrees of maturity will suffer accordingly.  The carnal man will make sure of that.  This is when we must continue to press in and not allow guilt or past failures to dissuade us from the revelation.  We must not let our mind rationalize away the precious Truth being revealed to us.  It takes patience and faith to hold on to a fresh revelation that goes against the current doctrine being preached by man.  We must not put FATHER in a perceived box.  We must think back when past, lower revelations were replaced by greater ones.  As we embrace higher laws, we are no longer subject to the lower laws.  You can either walk, ride in a car, or take an airplane to a distant location based on your revelation.  The choice lies with you.  I have faith that the law of aerodynamics will work every time I board an airplane because I trust in FATHER’S ability to keep that law in place and operational.

We are told to have patience as the carnal man is being “killed”.  We must persevere as the process is being completed and we must not be denied the anticipated outcome.  James chapter 1 reminds us:

2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,

3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Many men grumble when things don’t go their way.  Instead, we should count it all joy!  If we understand the necessity of the process then we will truly see the joy of having our preparation include such challenges and tests.  The tests are temporary in nature and we will gain a greater appreciation for them after the fact.  We will then be perfect and complete in those areas.

At a corporate level, all of creation is waiting to be set free.  Without the opposition, how could we be fully grateful for all that FATHER has done.  Opposition provides a contrast to the standard of Truth.  Without an enemy how can Love be fully tested?  Without the carnal man how can patience and faith be perfected?  As I write these Truths I know my own tests and trials have attempted to convince me from pressing on with these writings.  It would be easy to lay in bed or be predisposed with some “safe” activity satisfying the carnal man’s wishes but I press on and hope those who share this path continue on it with me.  It is my earnest desire that this revelation of Love break forth mightily in all us as we take on FATHER’S Character and operate fully in our callings in a pureness only seen in Christ!  As we resist the devil, he will flee from us.  This resistance requires faith and patience.

The mysteries contained in this Fifth Gospel will be opened to those who will persevere beyond the captivity of the carnal man.  Once set free, we are free indeed.  Martin Paulat had a vision of me in a jail cell with two adjoining sides being of brick and the other sides had bars with no apparent door.  I paced back and forth looking for a door but saw none.  Suddenly, a door appeared and I was able to immediately open it and depart from captivity.  (End of vision)  I believe this vision is now being fulfilled.  The door has always been there… before the foundation of the world, I simply could not see it until now.  It is the Open Door that no man can shut and it is opened by the Key of David which I believe to be the revelation of Love.  We will overcome all opposition with Love being our motivation.

Before the Foundation

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Revelation 13:8 And ALL who dwell on the EARTH shall worship him,  Whose NAME has not Been written from the FOUNDATION of the World in the SCROLL of the LIFE Of THAT LAMB  who Was KILLED.  See:

This translation of verse 8 presents a distinctly different translation that suggests those whose names ARE written in the Book of Life were there before the foundation of the world.  This is consistent with Job 38 when FATHER was challenging Job’s understanding and knowledge:

4 ​​“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?

​​Tell Me, if you have understanding.

5 ​​Who determined its measurements?

​​Surely you know!

​​Or who stretched the line upon it?

6 ​​To what were its foundations fastened?

​​Or who laid its cornerstone,

7 ​​When the morning stars sang together,

​​And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

The Sons are those who do not worship the beast or this world system.  Jesus referred to them as “the sheep” in Matthew 25:

31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.

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

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

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

Our minds have difficulty in grasping the concept of existence prior to the womb yet this is one of the mysteries our spirit will grasp as we open our eyes to the Book of Life and it originating before the foundation of the world.  FATHER clearly intended to prepare the kingdom for our inheritance with us expressly in HIS Mind and intent.  Paul spoke of this truth in Ephesians 1:

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love (agape),

5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,

6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

I am convinced that the revelation of the Sons cannot be separated from the revelation of Love.  The revelation of Love comes into its fullness in the final book of the Bible… by design.  It is hidden for those Sons to search out and once again embrace as they are being fully prepared and matured into perfection for the purpose established before the foundation of the world.  The current world system will disintegrate before our very eyes as the ministry of the Sons is fulfilled.  The restoration of all mankind will result as Christ and HIs Body minister Life to all.  This ministry will be irresistible and men will be drawn unto Christ resulting in every knee bowing and every tongue confessing Jesus Christ is LORD.  In Jesus’ prayer to FATHER in John 17, He mentions this revelation “before the foundation”:

24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

As we move forward in this revelation of FATHER’S Divine Intent, we will be able to behold, see, and awaken to HIS Glory.  We are to be with Him in Heavenly Places, caught up by FATHER’S perfect Plan, Will, and purpose.  We will be awakened to the fact that we truly were with HIM before the foundation of the world.   Think about it, dwell on it, embrace it if you can.  FATHER’S Divine Intent precedes manifestation and that hold true for us as well as the rest of the universe.

Our Chapter in the Book of Life

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

Psalm 40:

7 ​​Then I said, “Behold, I come;

​​In the scroll of the book it is written of me.

8 ​​I delight to do Your will, O my God,

​​And Your law is within my heart.”

FATHER knew us before HE formed us in the womb and we shouted for joy when the morning stars sang together.  Each of us are in one of two books: the Book of Life or the Book of death.  Men who follow the Adamic nature are found in the second book and are among those who worship the beast.  Adam was formed from the dust of the earth and gave up his relationship with FATHER and took on the corruptible nature.  He represents the earth dwellers.

The Book of Life of the Lamb contains all of those who have put on the incorruptible through the Blood of Jesus Christ.  Our nature is represented by by our name.  Once our nature has changed, FATHER gives us a new name and we become a chapter in the Book of Life of the Lamb.  Jacob was a great example of taking on a new name once his nature was changed:

Genesis 25:24  So when her (Rebekah) days were fulfilled for her to give birth, indeed there were twins in her womb.

25 And the first came out red. He was like a hairy garment all over; so they called his name Esau.

26 Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel; so his name was called Jacob.  Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.

Jacob’s name means supplanter, manipulator, negotiator, schemer, strategist, one who overreaches.  It is clear that Jacob’s trust was not in FATHER but rather it was in himself.  It was his nature as he came out of the womb.  Could he ever change?  Sure.  Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed because his brother Esau was out to get revenge.  It was due to Jacob’s successful scheming to get the blessing from Isaac, true to his nature.  But then something happened, he had an encounter with the messenger of THE LORD in Genesis 32:

24 Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day.

25 Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob’s hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him.

26 And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.”  But he said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me!”

27 So He said to him, “What is your name?”  He said, “Jacob.”

28 And He said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed.”

Jacob had a change in nature once he encountered the FACE of GOD.  His new nature means “Prince with GOD”, a far cry from his previous nature.  This brings up an important point-  Is your time better spent seeking FATHER’S Face or seeking signs or watching the calendar for some event to occur which could bring forth the manifestation of the Sons?  I would suggest that seeking FATHER’S Face will bring forth your manifestation!  Just as Jacob’s nature changed, our nature will also change and each of us will receive a new name reflecting our new nature as we put on the incorruptible.  Paul speaks of this in 1st Corinthians chapter 15:

50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.

51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—

52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

Could the mystery be that we are asleep until our eyes are opened and awakened to the Kingdom of GOD?  Notice that Jesus said “Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation.”  Doesn’t this refer that those who are asleep are the ones who are tempted by their flesh?  We all assumed that Paul was speaking of those who had physically died, referring to them as being asleep but the disciples were asleep at the Mount of Transfiguration and then awoke to Jesus in His glorified state.  Their eyes had been opened.  We must set aside past doctrines and look at the Word from a fresh view with our eyes fully open.

Each of us can have a nature change.  Jacob, the disciples, and most of all Paul had a nature change when they came face to face with the Presence of FATHER through His Son.  After all, Jesus is HIS manifestation in the flesh.  Let us each become chapters in the Book of Life and let not the carnal man allow our name to be blotted out of that book.  Our callings are written in the Book and FATHER has a full and complete record of all aspects of the nature we have been chosen to receive.  This Book of Life existed before the oldest books of the Bible were written.  Moses spoke of this Book when he talked to Father about the sin of the children in the camp.

Our chapter is being walked out right now.  Some who were called allowed their chapter to be blotted out.  Those who are chosen have their place in this Book of Life and let each of us fulfill the callings ordained in the Book before we were formed in the womb.  Let us shout for joy!

Which Book are You in?

Monday, January 26th, 2015

Genesis 5:1   This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;

There are two basic books or records of the generations mentioned in the Bible:  The book of Adam (death) and the book of Jesus Christ (life).  In Genesis chapter 5 the book of death is introduced.  After Adam had fallen, all of his generations were given a death sentence.  Because of the initial anointing on his life, it took many years for death to overtake him and the initial generations thereafter.  It is clear that life was difficult to overcome and speaks to the impact of FATHER’S life-giving SPIRIT on the physical.  The generations of Adam continue down this path of death to this very day.  Those who are written in this book are the ones who worship the beast:

Revelation 13:8    All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

The verse clarifies the fact that there are two basic books contrasting those who worship the beast versus those who don’t.  Those written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will not worship the beast or follow after it.  The second book is first revealed in Matthew chapter 1:

Matthew 1:1   The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

The 17th verse reveals that there are forty-two generations from Abraham to Christ.  We are the 42nd generation and represent the Body of Christ.  Likewise there were 41 moves in the wilderness and the 42nd move was crossing over into the Promised Land.  What a beautiful picture of victory over the beast system.

Can your name be transferred from one book to another?  Absolutely!  FATHER has a removal and restoration process.  You began as a vessel of dishonor for all have fallen short of the Glory of GOD and Jesus died for the ungodly which included all of us.  However you can become a vessel of honor and have your name added to the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.  We find this occurring in Exodus 32:

33  And the LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book. 34 Now therefore, go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you. Behold, My Angel shall go before you. Nevertheless, in the day when I visit for punishment, I will visit punishment upon them for their sin.”

35  So the LORD plagued the people because of what they did with the calf which Aaron made.

These people were called to HIS specific purpose and those who worshipped the golden calf were removed from HIS book.  Jesus Himself spoke of this potential removal from His Book as we saw earlier in Revelation chapter 3:

5  He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Does this mean you will lose your salvation?  No, it means you will not fulfill the calling and mission of the overcomer, the first squadron to be caught up for HIS Purpose to minister Life to all mankind.  You can individually be placed in another group thus receiving your reward at a different time.  Remember, the woman (church) is sustained in the wilderness whereas the Sons are caught up to Heaven.  We are not to sit idly by assuming that we are in the Book of Life just because the Sonship revelation was revealed to us.  You could easily be an observer to Christ’s mighty works rather than a participant.  It depends on your priority and willingness to proceed to Spiritual maturity, setting aside the distractions of the world.

Jesus made it quite plain in Matthew 7:

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’

23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

I remind you that there is a simplicity of following Christ.  Men would have you believe that His Way is complex and intricate and only those of superior intelligence will be able to walk the path.  I say to you that those who Love HIM and take on HIS Character will overcome all.  We must know HIM and HIS Love and forsake lawlessness.  As we become like Him, lawlessness will cease.  We will no longer do things for personal gain but instead will take on a life of service to others.  We will have a heart to serve mankind in whatever capacity our calling requires.  We don’t need to understand the meaning of every number or every name in the Bible.  Yes it is magnificent to discover how glorious FATHER’S Word comes together in a seamless manner interweaving the various facets of numbers, names, types, and shadows together.  But let us return to the simplicity of Love so that we not be distracted by anything that takes our eyes off of the high calling.

Those who are written in the Book of Live will not worship the beast and it is clear to the beast which group you are in.  You are not to be intimidated by the beast but you are to overcome it by the Blood of the Lamb.  You will not fear death because it has lost its sting.  You will not fear man because “greater is HE that is in you than he that is in the world”.  If GOD be for us, who can be against us?  When you are challenged, you will use the Words given by HIM whom you trust, “It is written”.  As you fully embrace HIS Love resulting in fully trusting IN HIM, you will not have your name blotted out of the Book of Life for you are qualified as an overcomer.

Overcoming Worldliness

Sunday, January 25th, 2015

Revelation 13:9   If anyone has an ear, let him hear.

10   He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

The carnal man looks at death as a bad thing yet every Christian proclaims once we die we then go to Heaven which is a good thing.  Yet most all Christians attempt to perpetuate their physical lives by any medical means necessary.  “I want to go to Heaven, just not too soon!” would be a better way to put it.  That is because the carnal man plants the fear of death and dying into the mind.  Men of great courage deny that fear consciousness to come when they are face to face with death.  The Sons too must die but they die to the fleshly nature, that carnal man.  They are to die by the sword of THE SPIRIT!

In the last 40+ years I have heard many proclaim the imminent return of Christ and several projected dates have come and gone.  Should we focus on the calendar or our own spiritual state of growth?  As for me, I will focus on the latter for if my focus is on the external, the internal will be hindered from growing and maturing into Sonship.  The external will ultimately take care of itself and my placement is assured by FATHER’S Plan.  If I die a physical death before the unfolding of the final slaying of the dragon, then I will be among the cloud of witnesses in Heaven.  Since I was delivered from certain death on May 9th, 2012, I know that my purpose was not yet fulfilled on earth.  Clearly I aspire to be counted among the Sons who are called to serve all of mankind but that cannot and will not be first and foremost as my priority.  My priority is to fully embrace and immerse myself in the revelation of HIS Love and reflect HIS Full Character… to fulfill John’s revelation- “As HE is, so are we!”

The carnal man wants to set a time for the return of Christ.  He wants to schedule it, mark it on the calendar, and keep your focus on that future event so that you will possibly become lax in your own spiritual development.  Compromise becomes the name of the game.  Since the next major event will not happen until such and such date in the future, you can take care of other pressing matters.  We must remember John was in the Spirit and the 3 1/2 years is a spiritual term not a literal earthly term even though we want it to be time-sensitive.  3 1/2 years is half of seven which denotes an incomplete time.  Seven represents completion and there are 49 sevens mentioned in the Book of Revelation.  The beast will thrive during an incomplete span of time but will not fulfill or bring anything into perfection.   The carnal nature wants to predict when FATHER is going to bring HIS Plan to fruition.  Don’t sweat it, simply prepare yourself for it.  Be content with the here and now!  You should not totally disregard the time aspect we live in but it should not redirect your focus away from the true priority of Spiritual maturity.  The book is about revealing Jesus Christ and our destiny to overcome the world and its beast systems.  Our redemption and restoration is assured.  This book reveals the bookend of other 3 1/2 years of Christ’s ministry.

7   It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe,tongue, and nation.

8   All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

For a period of time, the beast makes war with the saints.  What a great training plan for overcomers!  How else could you be tested if it weren’t for your enemies bringing forth the trials and tribulation in your life?  The term “overcomer” requires us to face challenges, some of them with great odds against us.  Jesus, the first Son, overcame the world thus we are called to overcome the world as well.  The beast system provides the perfect training ground to accomplish this Spiritual growth.  We will not worship the beast as the earth dwellers do.  We are among those who ascend to the higher realm and see the beast for what it is.  We are no longer deceived by the beast because FATHER in HIS great grace and mercy has opened our eyes to see and ears to hear.  Jesus spoke of this time “in” the world in John 17:

15   I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

16   They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

17   Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

18   As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world

Most Christians want to be spared any confrontation with the beast.  They want to be raptured up and sit on a cloud somewhere without any stress or pressure.  Growth does not come without pressure.  Jesus understood this when He prayed the words in the above passage.  We have been sent into the world to overcome it, not run from it.  We will only embrace this calling as we fully place our trust IN HIM.  How can we fully trust HIM unless we fully comprehend HIS Divine Intent of Love?  We only trust someone if we know his or her motive.  You can’t trust a thief, a liar, or a thug.  Their motives are self-serving.  Can you trust someone who is always trying to extract money or resources from you?  Our Heavenly Father needs nothing from you but desires a Loving relationship with each and every one of HIS children.

The beast makes war with the saints and it is all out spiritual warfare.  We must put on the whole armor of GOD mentioned in Ephesians 6:

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

This portion of the vision specifically addresses the spiritual warfare against the beast system.  We are called to be strong in THE LORD, not run and hide when presented with the challenges posed by the world.  We are called to be Spiritually mature and not be moved by what our natural eyes see.  We must place our trust in FATHER and we will overcome the worldliness in us as well as the world around us.  At a personal level, either we overcome or we will be overcome.  It is FATHER’S Will that we all stand against the wiles of he devil and these “wiles” are manifested in a mature form in the beast’s system.  Yes, the beast will have temporary victories over the saints but we must remember that the time is incomplete or temporary when these victories occur.  The beast may win some battles but we will win the war and overcome the world, both at an individual level and a corporate level.  The result will be the same- we will overcome worldliness.

Perpetuating the carnal nature

Revelation 13:3   And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.

4   So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”

The world system promotes death and destruction and thus lives to satisfy the temporal desires of “self”.  When Jesus was before Pilate, the governor asked the multitudes what to do with Jesus Who represented Life:

Matthew 27:

20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitudes that they should ask for Barabbas and destroy Jesus. 21 The governor answered and said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release to you?”

They said, “Barabbas!”

22 Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?”

They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified!”

The world says “kill” the One who would bring forth life and spare the one who promotes lawlessness.  The world system is an enemy to Christ, plain and simple.  When the chief priests and elders who represent the world system placed Jesus on the Cross, the beast’s system was being perpetuated.  Little did they realize that FATHER’S Plan included the Cross.  On the larger scale the world system looked to recover from certain extinction and removal when Jesus arrived on earth.  His ministry was one of 3 1/2 years indicating there was yet more to come for all things to be complete.  The Sons would provide the “bookend” for the second half of FATHER’S Plan of redemption and restoration of all mankind.

The world system is any organization apart from FATHER’S plan, will, and purpose no matter what the size.  Cities were formed by men who sought their own way and others grouped together apart from any relationship with FATHER.  Religions formed in the same manner.  Ultimately nations formed and wars resulted because men lost sight of FATHER’S provision.  Out of this evolved the power of the beast in the most subtle fashion.  Competition arose for resources and power and men developed instruments of war to perpetuate their agendas.  Where is Love in all this?  The world system has become entrenched in men’s minds and they know no other way.  The mysteries of FATHER have been hidden from them in order that they be unable to tap into HIS Power for nefarious purposes.

In every past revival, the initial fervor was intense among the people.  Masses would repent and vow to never turn back to their wicked ways.  Sin and lawlessness would subside for a period of time but then their Love grew cold and the “wound” of the beast would heal and it would grow stronger.  Man’s carnal nature would return with a vengeance.  World War I was supposed to end all wars.  Then came World War II.  Men renamed war to the term “conflict” in order to hide the reality of the beast among them.  False flag events designed to sway the masses have been used to move countries to war.  When will it end?  The beast’s wound keeps being healed.

The Latter Rain movement provided a taste of what is coming.  Those who received power and authority walked mightily among men.  I am sure they initially believed that they had entered into the Age of Tabernacles yet that was just another move of the Holy Spirit that subsided as men became “full of themselves”.  I believe that was the seed that needed to be planted and die so that the fullness of the Age of Tabernacles would arise from its death.  The mysteries of Love have been reserved for such a time as this.  The Sons are being matured for the final battle with the beast and everything that represents the world system.  FATHER cannot be placed in a box any longer but HIS Power and Authority will be assigned to those who love not their lives unto death.

Revelation 13:8  All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Those who dwell in Heaven worship FATHER whereas those who dwell in the earth worship the beast.  Where you heart is determines who or what you worship.  Do you worship football heroes, movie stars, cars, houses, clothes, food, or money?  Do you worship your church organization, pastor, or customs?  Any person or thing that takes your focus away from your relationship with Our Heavenly Father becomes part of the world system.  Here we once again have a contrast between the Sons of FATHER and the rest of mankind.  The earth dwellers ridicule the Sons as they continue their maturing process.  They proclaim the Sons to be silly and foolish.  I am always amazed that when men are on their deathbed, they look to the Spiritually mature to pray for them.  They don’t call their favorite sports hero.  They finally get serious at the point of physical death.

Revelation 13:9   If anyone has an ear, let him hear.

It is clear to me that only the Sons have ears to hear and it is Love that opens their ears!  It is Love that keeps their ears from stopping up as well.  Love guides us into all Truth and we must have ears to hear in order to embrace the mysteries interleaved into this final book given to the Beloved Disciple.  The beast will not survive into perpetuity.  His days are numbered.  As the world system continues to grow into such complexity that no man can understand its intricacies, the beast is being set up for a great fall and it will come suddenly.  Be assured that FATHER is not slack in HIS Promises.  Let not your trust IN HIM wane for HE will bring about an end to the beast and its system.  HIS Ways are superior to man’s and the result will be glorious and men will look back at the prior world system and say “What were we thinking?”.

The “world” is anything conceived outside FATHER’S plan, will, and purpose.  The world system is based on carnal man’s thinking and wisdom, not FATHER’S.  Men built the tower of Babel thinking they could ascend to FATHER’S level.  Now men think technology is the answer to just about everything.  Not enough food?  Let’s use technology to modify the genetics as though FATHER did not know what HE was doing in the first place.  This is blasphemy in the strictest sense.  Why do you think more and more people in the U.S. are becoming gluten intolerant?  I am convinced the genetically-modified wheat is having an adverse reaction in them.  Man continues to modify the natural order of plants and animals in a quest to become god-like and thus we see in Revelation 13, the beast is described “and on his heads a blasphemous name”.  Man’s misuse of FATHER’S creation is self-destructive rather than life-giving.  What an irony!

Many in the religious realm are blasphemous as well for they misrepresent FATHER and HIS Divine Intent of Love.  They exalt themselves above others to the point where no one would dare challenge the “revelation” they are promoting.  Any other view contrary to theirs is met with some form of criticism or separation.  They are more interested in protecting their agenda than being corrected and hearing FATHER.  This attitude of self-exaltation is mentioned by Jesus in Luke 20:

45 Then, in the hearing of all the people, He said to His disciples,

46 “Beware of the scribes, who desire to go around in long robes, love greetings in the marketplaces, the best seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts,

47 who devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation.”

In contrast to these men who exalt themselves above others, Jesus provides the contrast in Matthew 23:

8 But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren.

9 Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.

10 And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.

11 But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.

12 And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

Men will use designations given to them by the Babylonian system to exalt themselves over others.  Do you think the term “Reverend”, “Bishop”, or “Pastor” holds any significance in Heaven?  Titles are forms of separation and division, not Love and unity.  Titles are used to get people to submit to one’s authority.  They are handed out by other men who also promote the idea of derivative authority.  Isn’t any authority assigned outside FATHER’S Divine Intent promoting blasphemy?  Think about it.

Do you need to be recognized by men as being a spiritual authority in some area?  If so, that is the carnal man rising its blasphemous head up.  Let us all point people to Our Heavenly Father, not ourselves.  Let us become humble servants to mankind without resorting to devices, methods, titles, or any other means contrary to being led by HIS SPIRIT.  Even false humility is a device used by the adversary.  Let’s simply be real!  Let us not misrepresent FATHER in any way.  WE ARE BRETHREN as Jesus pointed out which makes us all equal in His Eyes.  When we focus on serving rather than being served, we are fulfilling Love’s intent.

Paul understood the need to shed himself of the “world” when he wrote in Colossians chapter 3:

7 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.

8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ.

The Sons will confront this blasphemy with the nature, power, and authority of Christ and no other.  They will be fully immersed in HIS Love for all mankind and will minister accordingly.  They will have been to the backside of the wilderness and received the  necessary purging and cleansing of the world system.  They will set aside any and all titles associated with their former earthly ties just as Paul did.  The blasphemous beast has matured and recovered from being mortally wounded thus being given more power by those who are of the world.  At the same time the creative Power from Heaven is being ordained for the Sons to overcome the beast.  There is no question that FATHER’S power is superior to any form of worldly power and as a result the beast and its blasphemy will come to its end.

The beast is fully matured

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Revelation 13:1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.

2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

The head represents authority and horns represent organized power.  Seven heads represent the fact that the beast is fully mature in its authority over the world.  In the past, men have tried to identify seven specific leaders to pin our problems on.  “Self” is the problem as it is manifested at a macro level.  Selfishness, self-centeredness, and self preservation are all attributes of those who have promoted and fed the serpent to become a dragon.  Now the beast has risen out of the the depraved sea of humanity and established a mature sensual, devilish system for all of mankind to submit and become its subjects under its rule.

The ten horns or organized power speak to the laws enacted in order to keep mankind in subjection to its rule.  One only has to look as far as the new laws being implemented to see how man’s freedom and liberties are being whittled away in order to perpetuate the beast’s system of control and subjection.  The Ten Commandments of Love have been replaced with the ten horns of derivative power transferred by the masses who look to government for their protection and provision.

Leaders and politicians continue to place the masses in greater subjection while they misrepresent Truth.  They have replaced true money with fiat currency that can be manipulated in order to perpetuate their schemes.  They use cunning devices to promote self interest and get reelected by prostituting themselves to corporate greed.  In the meantime, the masses are entertained by the increasing variety of television programming, computer games, and extreme sports.  “Let’s keep them occupied” is the chant of those who place the masses under further control.

A fully matured beast will hate the Sons.  You are a threat to the world and FATHER will sustain you during your maturing process.  Remember that HE has the Sons caught up to Heaven and the woman is being sustained in the wilderness.  The beast is affecting the rest of mankind until the fateful hour when the world’s system comes tumbling down.  Even now there are tremors occurring that is shaking the very foundation of the current system.  The beast in its quest to devour will in effect cause its own demise.  Its very nature of death and destruction is its weak point.  The wisdom of the world cannot bring forth life but instead it is self-consuming in nature.  Jesus spoke about this kingdom when He said in Luke 11:

17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls.

The world system is not in unity nor will it ever be.  Greed and lawlessness prevent men from truly submitting to another whereas FATHER’S Kingdom is knit together in Love and HIS Sons promote life and abundance for all of mankind.   The beast is wild and uncontrollable and no earthly man can tame it.  The world system is ruthless and has no problem in killing, maiming, exploiting, and deceiving to promote its various agendas.  It will do everything possible to suppress any righteous standard from coming forth.  Herod killed the infants hoping to include Our Lord Jesus Christ among them.  His fear of losing his position of power motivated him to instigate the mass slaying of male children.  The beast hates the Sons and moves upon men to become their enemies.  In an counterintuitive move, FATHER moves us to Love our enemies.  The beast just can’t seem to grasp that reality for it is guided by the wisdom of the world.  Paul explains this reality in 1 Corinthians 3:

18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”;

20 and again, “The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.”

The beast had seven heads denoting its authority had fully matured.  But then something happened:

Revelation 13:. 3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.

4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”

Did the beast nearly fall or collapse but then recover?  On his heads are names of blasphemy.  If one is blasphemous, he misappropriates, slanders, misallocates, and speaks evil of others.  At a personal level, we receive Christ in our hearts but then later the old man who is mortally wounded seems to rise up and gain strength.  Those who succumb to the carnal man begin to misallocate what is now the FATHER’S possession for their selfish gain.  They will exalt themselves by belittling others.  They will exploit the generosity of others by using the “guilt” card.  “If you loved me, then you would ….”.  This is a classic conditional love expression.  During these confrontations with “self” we must hear FATHER so that we do not enable and promote lawlessness.  As the beast matures it becomes critical for us to be led by THE SPIRIT and have full access to HIS Living Word.  Otherwise, the beast will use its subtle devices to snare and bind us.

When the beast is fully mature, the “world” will believe that nobody is able to stand against it.  Their blindness to FATHER’S Power and Authority which supersedes any derivative power causes them to believe such a lie.  Once the deception has been exposed, men will repent en masse.  When the Righteous Standard is raised to compare against the current system, men will see how they have been misled and deceived by the sensual, worldly wisdom.  Their blindness will be removed and their eyes will shed tears of remorse and in turn will become tears of joy when they see the Love of THE FATHER expressed by HIS plan of restoration.  We can see the plan coming together!
