From Serpent to Dragon

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

The bestial world system began in the garden of Eden with the serpent who in the book of Revelation has now become a fierce dragon.  Man’s carnal nature has continued to grow and expand into the outward realm instituting laws and cultures to perpetuate its various agendas.  When man is left to his own devices, what happens?  In the Book of Judges there is a consistent theme- departure in the ways of the LORD by the children of Israel, external subjection, repentance, and deliverance.  Each man walked according to his own way and clearly “his way” was not FATHER’S Way.  As you read about the various judges of Israel, you find the time between subjection to the world and deliverance increases.  The length of time in bondage grows longer as they continue to forget WHO their Creator is.  This depicts the growth of the world system enabled by the carnal nature of man.  The source of the problem is internal, not external.  The external physical result is merely the symptom and the church has tried to modify men’s behavior by using fear of eternal damnation, its own form of manipulation and bondage.  Hence you have a religious system of the world formed as an offshoot of the beast.

A father’s role is to guide, guard, and govern.  The bestial system has taken on that role at a macro level by taking over the political system.  Men look to the government to take care of them.  In the U.S. alone, there are over 40 million on food stamps now in digital form.  Instead of the bread lines of the 1930’s, there are lines at the checkout counters in grocery stores on the day that the government debit cards get refreshed.  You only need to ask a cashier to find out exactly on what day this occurs.

Genesis 3:1   Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

Man is “wired” to believe and that attribute is used by the beast to promote its agenda.  Propaganda is a primary means used by the world system to keep the inhabitants in line.  The eyes and ears are bombarded with lies presented as truth until the population is convinced.  Only those who seek FATHER’S Living Word and HIS SPIRIT will know the Truth and will not be moved by the propaganda machine.  They will not be among the majority and will be persecuted because of their knowledge of the Truth.  Peer pressure is used to return them back into submission.  How dare you challenge the pastor’s experience and education?  FATHER is not moved by the world system’s PhD’s.  Jesus needed no white lab coat to heal the sick.  He needed no degree in psychiatry to cast out demons:

Luke 8:1   Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with Him,

2 and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities—Mary called Magdalene, out of whom had come seven demons.

The kingdom of GOD is righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.  Do you see it prevailing on earth at this time of war, distress, murders, rape, drug addiction, and laws condoning lewdness and promiscuity?  Just as in the Book of Judges but on a much greater scale and in full resolution to the current state of sin and lawlessness, FATHER is raising up an army of Judges who will have HIS fiery WORD in their mouths and in full unity with HIS first begotten Son.  The beast rising out of the tumultuous sea of mankind will be dealt with once and for all.   HIS Kingdom will descend down to earth and replace the world system currently in place.  The current system does not need to be fixed, instead FATHER will replace it with HIS Kingdom where Love reigns.

John understood the impact of the serpent growing into such a beast.  The spirit of the serpent departed the garden of Eden and its influence increased throughout the earth as disobedient sons populated the earth and built cities to congregate in.  In 1 John chapter 3, he wrote of the two primary groups of people after the ministry of Jesus Christ came forth:

8    He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

This final book of jubilee focuses on this very purpose- to destroy the works of the devil.  John specifically states the importance of Love in this purpose:

10   In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.

11  For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another,

Love or lack thereof separates the two groups from each other.  To Serve or exploit will be the result depending on which group you are in.  Are you a giver or a taker?  Be honest.  If you are a giver, is it sporadic or is it a way of life with you?  The subtleness of the serpent is to cause you to compromise even in your giving.

12  not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother’s righteous.

13 Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you.

14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death.

The dragon is in the devouring business and will steal your life away from you if possible.  Whether it be done head on or in a subtle fashion, the goal is the same- death and destruction.  Cain envied Abel which resulted in Abel’s death.  Cain was the first begotten son of Adam after having been removed from the Presence of FATHER and  submitting instead to the devil.  Cain was born into sin and committed murder.  This act set the stage for the serpent to further manifest in men’s lives and ultimately producing the dragon.  Had Cain loved his brother the serpent would not have been fed and empowered.  The first begotten son of Adam set the process of death in motion.  The first begotten Son of GOD is reversing the curse of mankind and other Sons are maturing in order that the earth be redeemed from the system set up by sons of the wicked one.

Two Types of Borrowing

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

In the past, I have recommended to the readers to eliminate debt.  That still goes…   However if you borrow money for income producing purposes, it is a different type of borrowing.  For example, borrowing for a new car which is an asset of declining value puts you at risk if something negative happens.  On the other hand, borrowing money for viable inventory that produces sales is not as risky and becomes part of the cost of doing business.  As you sell the inventory, you retire debt and produce a profit which more than offsets the interest expense of the inventory carrying costs.

Lowering your leverage is a wise move especially now.  The Swiss National Bank removed its Swiss Franc “peg” against the Euro last week.  In 13 minutes, people who were leveraged in this area of the currency market suffered huge losses and some were wiped out.  The Swiss Franc increased 30% in about 780 seconds and no one could do anything about it.


This is serious!  The central banks are now in self-preservation mode and there is surely more volatility on the way.

In the U.S., I suspect dogs could now get a car loan based on the easy credit available.  A Honda Finance executive comments:

I have written several warnings about the economic challenges ahead.  It seems 2015 has started out with a “Swiss Chocolate” Black Swan.  Expect more black swans on the horizon.

The Rising up of the beast

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

In Bonnie Gaunt’s book Apocalypse … and the Magnificent Sevens, she shares her research and focus of the numbers found in the Fifth Gospel.  The number seven is used 49 times in this final book.  This number represents “jubilee”, the cancellation of debt.  Now let’s return to the beginning of the Book of Revelation and reaffirm its intent:

1:3   Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

This is a book of blessings not cursing, death, and destruction.  Your spirit will focus on the revealing of the positive and your carnal man will try to direct your focus to the negative.  You need only to look at the following sixteen comparisons to see which column mankind has spent the majority of their time, focus, and preaching:

The Judge

the judgments

The Lamb

The dragon

Seven Spirits of GOD

Spirits of devils

Rider (with four names) on the White Horse

Four horses

Throne of FATHER

The seat of the beast

Lion of the Tribe of Judah

The beast of the sea

The Faithful and True Witness

The false prophet

144,000 Sons of GOD on Mt. Zion

The beast out of the earth

Those with FATHER’S Name on their forehead

The mark of the beast

The New Jerusalem

Mystery Babylon

The Bride of the Lamb

The harlot

The Manchild ascending to the Throne

The dragon cast out of Heaven

The Glory of GOD

The darkness covering the earth

The Overcomers

The churches whose candlesticks are removed

The Unveiling of Jesus Christ

The antichrist

Four living creatures around the Throne

Four animalistic attributes of the beast

Once we look at this comparison and see that all the focus has been on the negative and not the blessings, we can see how this book has been grossly misinterpreted by those whom the mysteries have not been revealed.  Let’s face it, the carnal man has done a rather successful job of keeping everyone blinded to the intent of this book and its purpose of bringing the Sons to perfection so that all of mankind will experience the ultimate jubilee and be fully restored to FATHER!

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.

Headship refers to authority and control and the seven heads of the beast represent maturity, completeness, and fullness of authority.  We must remember that it is necessary to let the tares grow to full maturity along with the wheat less the wheat be uprooted with the tares.  Both groups are destined to mature at the same time and among each other.  The tares are the sons of the wicked one as Jesus explained.  These tares represent the beast arising out of the sea of humanity.  They are guided by the debase, fleshly nature and will act accordingly thus we should not cringe as we see their fruit.  Yes it is putrid and smelly but we must remember that in the end, the tares will be gathered up and burned by the fire that proceeds out of the mouth of the Redeemer, the Living Word. 

Currently, there looks to be an increasing level of control and submission placed on all the inhabitants of the earth by the beast.  You can hardly spend ten dollars without the beast monitoring you and there is a plan afoot to control all of your economic activity by moving toward digital money.  If you can be tracked, you can be controlled.  That is the intent of lust and pride.  Our Heavenly Father is not unaware of their evil intent or devices.  Be of good cheer!

This beast represents the world system, not just specific jurisdictions, leaders, or empires.  The carnal man wants to assign external labels to bring the issue down to the physical realm instead of the spiritual realm where the problem lies.  The nature, power, and authority of man’s carnal ways are encapsulated in the description of this beast.  The dragon gives this beast three things:

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 dragon’s carnal intent is carried out externally by the beast.  They are the mature sons of the wicked one and have taken on the characteristics of their father, the devil.  Can you not see how this final book depicts the contrast of the Sons of FATHER Whose Divine Intent of Love will overcome and overtake the sons of the evil one whose spiritual intent is death and destruction?  What will be the deciding factor of victory where two groups of mature sons take on their respective positions of authority?  Jesus gives us the answer in Matthew 28:

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All power and authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

The sons of the wicked one’s days are numbered.  Power and authority will be given to the Sons who make up His Body as His Life flows through them.  At that time, the sons of disobedience will meet their maker but not in the usual manner.

Describing the beast

Monday, January 19th, 2015

Prophecy teachers have been assigning specific leaders as the beast or as some member of the beast yet I see it from a different perspective.  Yes it is true that these leaders may have taken on attributes of the beast and would be qualified representatives but this beast has been found in the depths of our own internal carnal man.  We need not look any further than the mirror to find where the beast ascended and lay claim in the not so distant past.  Paul was chosen to write two-thirds of the New Testament yet he revealed the battle of the two “I’s” within him in Romans 7.  Your mind is logical and will only respond to the information, facts, and truth provided it.  If you only feed fleshly and negative input, the result will be reflected in your thought life.  However if you focus on the higher Spiritual Truths, old thoughts and perceptions will be replaced with those higher Truths and life-giving perspectives.  A great example of this is when Joshua ascended part way up the mountain with Moses and awaited his return from the Presence of FATHER.  He heard a loud commotion below in the camp:

Exodus 32:17  And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, “There is a noise of war in the camp.”

Nope, it was a golden calf worship party and Moses was not a happy camper.  This bespeaks of Joshua’s pure heart and and his pure heart can be contrasted with those who submit to the beast:

Titus 1:15  To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled.

16 They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.

The above passage contrasts the vessels of honor versus the vessels of dishonor who are disqualified.  Would this indicate that one could have once been qualified for a good work but then later dis-qualified due to decisions to focus on the depths of the tumultuous sea of humanity and take on their customs and priorities?  The spirit of this beast can be ever so subtle.   Paul said it this way in Romans 8:

5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.

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

We have the choice of where we place our focus.  If you focus on the revelation of Love, you will walk toward that revelation until you are fully immersed in Love.  How long will it take?  It matters not to me for I will not be denied the most high prize of HIS calling in my life.  Everything else will take care of itself until I have reached full maturity of FATHER’S most important character trait- Love.  The beast would like to consume me and draw me away from this higher plane.

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.

From Wikipedia:  The leopard’s success in the wild is in part due to its opportunistic hunting behavior, its adaptability to habitats, its ability to run at speeds approaching 58 kilometers per hour (36 mph), its unequaled ability to climb trees even when carrying a heavy carcass, and its notorious ability for stealth. The leopard consumes virtually any animal that it can hunt down and catch.

This sounds like the carnal nature of man… take no prisoners.

The feet of a bear are similar in structure to man hence they can walk in an upright fashion.  They have ‘plantigrade’ feet making them able to walk on the soles of their feet.  Their foot supports more weight than any other mammal with this type of foot.  Their paws have tremendous strength and grip that will not let go of its prey.  Similarly, man’s systems are design to keep us subjected to them by any means at their disposal.  This allows them to control and exploit us once we are in their grip.  This is true at the personal level as well.  Just consider the plight of an addict.  Once they submit themselves to the lower nature of the beast, their path towards destruction accelerates.

The mouth of a lion has two notable functions- a roar to bring forth fear and teeth to tear away flesh for consumption.  Both functions are extremely effective.  Out of the lion’s mouth are “words” of fear brought forth as the law of the jungle.  His mouth consumes the weak and constantly reaffirms his position as the ruler over the masses.

Each aspect of the beast is designed to consume and control you to the point of devouring you.  In the Epistle of Jude, we are warned of those who have taken on the attributes of this beast:

16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage.

17 But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ:

18 how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts.

19 These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.

Why look for a distant leader or group of leaders to assign as “the beast” when you can see the beast operating in men and women everywhere as members of the sea of humanity.  The beast is the outworking of the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.  It is a spiritual force that opposes THE SPIRIT and the Living Word and all those who submit to the beast will be included in those 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”.

Love will expose the beast for what it really is so that those who are called up higher will no longer be fearful or reluctant when confronted by the spirit of this beast.  They will no longer be intimidated by the lies and deception originating from this beast.  Feat not, be of good courage!

The Final Broadcast of the Series- Circumcised Heart of Love Chapter 22 “The Big Picture”

Sunday, January 18th, 2015

Over the last few weeks, the broadcast has endured much interference.  This is not unexpected.  Anytime FATHER calls us to a project, resistance will normally occur before we cross the finish line.  This has played out multiple times over the last four decades and this project is no different.  This week I acquired a memory stick for one of our cameras in order to have a second backup to today’s broadcast if the Internet becomes unstable again.

We will have our Sunday afternoon Bible Study at 3PM CST in Bethany.  Bob will be directing the discussion today.  We will continue our focus on Love using the book “Circumcised Heart of Love” as a basis of discussion.  Today, we will be covering Chapter 22.

To participate live or watch this Bible study as a recording afterwards, go to  The chat room should be open today for your comments.  We look forward to your participation during our live broadcast.

We have had 102 broadcasts over the last 27 months focused on the books published by Servias Ministries.  This will complete our broadcast series on these publications.  You can order our books at

As of yesterday we have had 23,642 views of the baptism of love channel.  I am grateful for the ongoing financial support that allows us to fulfill the mandate of Servias Ministries.

This will conclude the broadcast of our Bible study.  We will see what FATHER wants us to do next.  Until then, we will move into a time of “compression” in anticipation of the next major “expansion”.  One project, process, function, or area of preparation must end to allow the next to begin.  I am extremely excited about this what is coming forth this year.  The excitement began in early September and has grown since.  I expect something noteworthy to come forth.

Following the beast

Sunday, January 18th, 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.

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.

There are two systems to compare:  the world system and the glorious City of FATHER.  There is a vast group who are pursuing the world system and its trappings whereas a much smaller group are focused upward and are certainly not standing on the beach looking into the depths of the sea.  We know that in the end the glorious city will overcome and overshadow the world and FATHER is raising up HIS Sons to populate the Army of THE LORD and overcome all opposition to HIS ultimate purpose for all of mankind.  HIS provision is sufficient for those who are currently in the world but not of the world.

As a side note, I must say that writing these words and studying HIS Living Word blesses me and I would do so if no one else ever read these words.  These blogs are meant to express HIS Love toward you as we pursue the revelation of HIS mysteries.  Isn’t it wonderful to see a fresh view of this last book which has been so maligned by past teachers who wanted to scare us into subjection and extract our finances to help further their self-motivated agendas?  Where is FATHER’S Divine Intent of Love in their teaching?  In looking back over the last 40 years I can see the beast at work.  In such a subtle fashion, the beast has added many followers who assumed the “mature” teachers knew it all and had figured everything out.  We assigned to much power to men and that is the definition of “derivative” power.  I prefer the “creative” power of FATHER for it is enduring.

Men assign power to others by various means and methods.  A republic such as found in the U.S. has representatives of the people.  We voted for men we don’t know and give them power as though they have some special anointing to bring us a better life.  As they say, “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”  It is all about the intent in the heart, not the outward perception and only FATHER know the thoughts and intents of men.

Each of us lives according to our vision and revelation.  If you focus is toward Heaven, that will be your destination.  But if you focus on the things of the world, that too will be where you end up.  The choice is yours.  I suspect those who are reading these words have their eyes heavenward.  Just as John, we too are called up to the higher realm.

We know that we are made up of spirit, soul, and body just as we are part of a larger system made up of heaven, earth, and sea.  We have a comparison of the highest to lowest.  The body corresponds to the sea in John’s vision.  The beast rises out of our flesh and takes up residence in our soul, if allowed.  This is in contrast to the Sons being led by the SPIRIT with the soul and body in full subjection.  The mind is designed to be a servant to your spirit, not the opposite.  It is binary in nature and can only process two views- up and down, black and white, good and bad.  When you let your mind, will, and emotions take control, that is when things start heading in a downward fashion toward the depths of the sea.  Lot followed this path until he ended up in Sodom.  Think about it.

What happens in Heaven is relevant to the Sons of FATHER and what happens on earth is focused on the rest of mankind.  The beast is now rising out of the lower depths of the carnal realm.  The outward expression of this ascending can be found everywhere and is being reported in the news constantly.  The tares are reaching full maturity at the same time the Sons are ascending and caught up to Heaven.  Which group do you think will prevail?  We should not be surprised by the bestial conditions now being reported by the various news outlets.  Once prayer left the schools, the beast began ascending into that arena.  The beast continues its ascension out of the depths of the sea and will be found where men assign it power in their lives for that is the only power it really has.  The beast cannot be separated from the men who give it power:

Ecclesiastes 3:18   I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

The first thing John sees is the head of the beast coming out of the sea.  It has seven heads indicating a fully mature state of mind.  It has grown into maturity because mankind has submitted to its deception and  followed the path to destruction.  Men have assigned power and authority to the destructive, bestial system on their behalf.  In the second epistle of Peter, chapter 2, we are given details of this:

1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.

2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.

3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.

By now we should be able to see that in the Living Word, the sea represents the lowest level of existence.  This is where there is no wisdom from Above and as a result people live in constant turmoil.  With this understanding, James wrote in chapter one:

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.

A man is like a wave in the sea of humanity, unstable in all his ways.  This Fifth Gospel is fully consistent with the other books as we no longer try to interpret what is seen in the Spirit by assigning man’s external view of it.  We will either view this beast from the nature of Christ or the nature of the Adamic or natural man.  The second perspective will deceive you into looking for some external figure to tag as “the beast”.  Instead, just look inside of you.  Paul did as he wrote in Romans 7:

15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do.

16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good.

17 But now,it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.

18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.

19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.

20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.

Once the beast is revealed, it can be dealt with.  Until then, man will blindly allow the beast to reign and follow the beast toward destruction.

The Beast

Saturday, January 17th, 2015

Revelation 13:1   And 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.

This Fifth Gospel was written based on what John saw in the Spirit and we must remind ourselves that he was told to “come up hither” at the beginning of the vision and there he remained throughout this Gospel.  Over the last 43 years I have heard and read countless views on the symbolism men have come up with concerning the various characteristics of the devil and our own carnal nature.  Characters and animals in this book such as the beast have been assigned to various world leaders and systems.  Most of the world leaders who were labeled as “the bad guys” are now dead or feeble and out of the picture.  One would think that there are 300 year old men and women still pulling the strings behind the curtain if you go back and read the various interpretations of this Fifth Gospel.  What has been missing that has caused all of those prophecy teachers to have time prove them wrong?  I believe it is due to the lack of the revelation of Love.  You only have to consider the writer of this Fifth Gospel as a hint to the underlying problem of all the past failed attempts to understand the content.  The classic response when confronted with the false prophecy is that they missed some key ingredient.  That has to be the first indication that they were not hearing the HOLY SPIRIT Who teaches us the higher Truths.

The Book of Daniel follows closely the prophetic message of this book of Love.  In chapter 12, he writes:

9 And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

10 Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

It is most critical that we read the “spiritual” by THE SPIRIT and not with head knowledge.  Man would like to bring every word spoken down to the natural so that he can wrap them in his formulas and calculations.  Head knowledge will seek to filter everything through past experience and education.  If head knowledge was the key to understanding the visions of Daniel and John, then we would all be in class waiting for the college professor to enter and reveal the mysteries to us.  Simon Peter, the fisherman, received revelation without any diploma whatsoever.  How?

Matthew 16:

16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.

The church’s foundation is built on this revelation.  I would rather receive one revelation from FATHER than read a thousand books of opinions of what men think HE meant.  Everyone has an opinion whether inspired or not.

In the passage from Daniel, who are the wise that understand?  They are the ones who are purified, made white, and refined.  The wicked have no clue.  If you are not motivated by Love, you will surely miss the mark of FATHER’S Divine Intent found inside these visions.  The carnal man looks for the negative in everything and externalizes the wars so you simply become an observer rather than having to deal with your flesh.  That is the intent of the carnal man inside of you.  He wants to keep you away from Truth for once it comes, his days are numbered.

In 1 Corinthians chapter 2, Paul speaks of the rulers in the world and their lack of wisdom:

6 However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.

7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory,

8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

Think back on all the world leaders, the Bilderbergers, the Rockefellers, the Illuminati, and other who have been assigned the various symbols in the Book of Revelation.  Do you think they are any more equipped to fulfill the vision than those leaders who were in power when Our Lord Jesus Christ literally walked the earth?  The current leaders will “come to nothing” as well as those leaders in the first century.  The hidden wisdom has been contained within a mystery which has been reserved for the initiated.  No one else is ordained to unlock the mystery, certainly not the wicked.  The current rulers will walk out their part unaware of the FATHER’S plan while HE reveals the mysteries to HIS selected and called out ones.  In the end, the wise shall understand the vision of John and THE SPIRIT will confirm it in their hearts.  As the fullness of this revelation comes forth, they will go forth with signs following, not looking for signs to lead them.

This chapter continues the previous chapter where the dragon is pursuing the remaining offspring.  The first verse begins with the word “and” or “then” depending on your version.  John is now standing on the beach and looking toward the sea.  The sea represents the lowest carnal nature where the fleshly, carnal, and worldly reside.  The sands of the sea represent those inhabitants of the earth who will ultimately receive the blessings of Abraham:

Genesis 22:15   Then the Angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time out of heaven,

16 and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son—

17 blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies.

Notice that there are two distinct groups: stars and sand.  The stars represent the Sons (Job 38:7) and the rest of mankind represent the sand on the seashore.  We see that John’s vision is focused on the latter group who are being subjected to the beast rising out of the depths of the carnal nature.  This group’s location indicates that they are but babes being subjected to the world’s ways and have been enticed to the point of being on the beach rather than maintaining a separation.  They have a worldly orientation yet they are HIS children, they are walking according to the flesh.

The beast coming out of the sea in this chapter is different than the dragon mentioned in the last chapter.  This beast represents the epitome of the carnal nature and those systems built as an outward result and expression of this lowest beastly view.  Consider the organizations which now exist representing the debase and perverse expressions and corruption of this lowest form of carnality.  They hide behind “freedom of expression” and laws they helped enact.  The tares are allowed to grow just as the wheat is being prepared for harvest.  This is an ongoing process and it spans time well beyond any particular government or organization.  This is why we must not rely on an external view to fixate our focus away from the internal.

This beast is rising up or ascending from the sea.  He is not the source but instead he is the result of the corruption of humanity in its lowest form. Why in the world do you think the various global economies are in their current predicament?  Why do you the U.S. is fighting wars because of misrepresented facts given to the American people?  Why is ISIS and al Qaeda constantly creating havoc?  The “beast” has risen up in men’s hearts and they have formed organizations or taken control of existing governments to fulfill the nefarious purposes.  Cannot FATHER deliver us from these outward expressions of the carnal man?  Absolutely!  How long would it take the CREATOR of Heaven and earth to remove the problem?  In less than a nanosecond.  The problem is not the external, it is the internal!  The only helpless ones are those who have given the beast derivative power and have assigned that power to be greater than that of the FATHER.  They are walking around in blindness and allowing the beast to devour them.  This is only for a short time.

The Third Focus

Friday, January 16th, 2015

Revelation 12:17  And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

This final verse of the chapter clearly states that the dragon is unable to devour the woman.  In the SPIRIT, John first sees the serpent attempting to use its subtlety and now sees the dragon who is unable to devour the woman.  The dragon is enraged and now will look elsewhere to see who he may devour.  Peter spoke of this in the following passage:

1 Peter 5:6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,

7   casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

8   Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

9   Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

It is the dragon’s nature to devour so he will now attempt to go find someone to satisfy his lust.  The Sons of FATHER are out of reach, they have ascended to Heaven.  The woman is also out of reach for she is now under the protection of FATHER while she is in the midst of the wilderness.  This leaves the rest of her offspring, which is now the focus of the dragon.

Our Heavenly Father is represented as a potter and we represent HIS vessels that HE formed.  With this in mind let us focus on Paul’s second letter to Timothy, chapter 2:

20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor.

21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.

Gold represents Divine nature and silver represents redemption.  These two vessels denote honor but those of wood and clay represent dishonor and are now being sanctified for use.  This last group is now the focus of the dragon.  This group of Christians are but babes in Christ for they have the testimony of Jesus Christ in their mouths.  They keep the commandments and they are good people however their spiritual walk has not progressed to the same level as the Sons or the woman.  This group might be represented by the first Feast- Passover.  They have been redeemed but yet they have not progressed through Pentecost on to Tabernacles.  They have been fed the milk of the Word and are not yet ready for the “meat”.  We must not be critical of other groups that are at different levels of understanding for in the end, we are all restored and reconciled IN HIM.  None of us expect someone in kindergarten to pass an exam prepared for a senior in high school.  Neither should we expect everyone to embrace our level of revelation and relationship with FATHER.  The will soon enough.  The mature ones will serve the immature until they ascend higher.  This is the pattern our elder brother Jesus Christ has established on our behalf and I am totally grateful for this.

There is no question that this third group loves THE LORD and profess Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior.  They simply have not received the deeper revelations necessary to be commissioned in the Sons or Bride callings.  That does not make them any less important to FATHER but it simply means that their callings are for a different time and purpose.  That’s okay, FATHER knows what HE is doing!

This third group is living in the ‘earth’ realm and they are subject to attack.  The devil walks the earth seeking to devour and those who love the LORD and yet are focused on the wiles of the devil having not yet matured in their understanding.  They are still dealing with the flesh even though they assign most of their problems to an external source, the devil.  In listening to them you would think the devil is omnipresent but it isn’t so.  Just as with the woman, this third group will be subject to the war with the dragon for a short time.  Yes, when you are in the midst of a battle it seems like an eternity but be assured that this war will come to an end.  Paul urges this group to stand:

Ephesians 6:11 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.

We must embrace the understanding of each group knowing that in the Spirit, there is no sequential time.  We must admit that some areas of our lives might place us in more than one of the groups described.  We are totally mature in some areas and not so much in others.  FATHER knows this and HE has specifically developed a personalized path to maturity for each of us.  If HE has given us the revelation of Sonship, we must purse the fullness of that revelation.  Other have been given the revelation of being HIS Bride and they too must pursue that end.  HE is the One Who determines who receives what revelation and mystery.  We must not feel guilty or undeserving of being selected for our individual callings.  It was decided before we were formed in the womb.  We must not let past failures dictate our current progression to full maturity.  Instead, we must let the past go and focus on the present.  Our trust in FATHER and HIS Love for us is our assurance that we will fulfill our calling no matter what group we have been placed in.  Let us Love our brothers and sisters by simply serving them in whatever capacity and office we are placed, whether it be the first, second, or third group. 

Why does the dragon devour?  It is his nature.  Why is the serpent sly and cunning and spewing forth a flood of lies?  That too is his nature.  If anything is for sure, the dragon and serpent characteristics are consistent.  Each of the three groups have been confronted by the various methods and attacks by the adversary.  None are exempt from these trials.  This third group has been preceded by two other groups who have risen above the wiles of the devil and this is due to Our Lord Jesus Christ establishing the path by being the first to forge this path and we all are truly grateful for HIS Love and provision.

The Pursuit of the Woman

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Revelation 12:15   So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.

16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.

The woman has been swept away to the wilderness and the serpent made one last attempt to keep her from entering into the place of protection reserved for her.  Notice the limitation of his power versus the magnificent power of Our Heavenly Father.  Out of the mouth of the serpent came forth a flood of water.  This flood was intended to carry her back to the world she left.  She would be carried away, not drowned.  In the wilderness she would be nourished by the Living Word and SPIRIT in preparation of becoming a bride without spot or wrinkle.  The serpent has read the book and knows this.  That is why he is making an attempt to keep her from entering into the wilderness.  If you are being called to the wilderness, don’t attempt to circumvent FATHER’S time of processing you.  Let patience have its perfect work.

The serpent wants the woman to return to the ways of the world where the carnal nature of man rules and devoid of understanding.  This flood coming out of the serpent’s mouth are an abundance of words.  These are lies, deceit, manipulations, misrepresentations, and reasoning, all directed to keeping the woman from final preparations as a bride, destined to enter the City of OUR GOD and take up residence there.  Once in the wilderness, the serpent will no longer have any influence over her.

Today, we see this same deceit, lies, and manipulation coming into full focus in the financial markets.  There is no question in my mind where all of this is heading.  The source of this deception is the serpent who relies on the greed of men and women to further his agenda.  Just as it is so with the woman, all of creation will be brought into Truth by the Living Word and THE SPIRIT.  This “third” of mankind will be the last to receive the ministry of restoration.  Right now the focus is on the second “third” represented by the woman.  The first “third” represented by the manchild has already been caught up to Heaven and has been perfected for ministering to mankind.

This flood of lies originates in the carnal nature of man and it produces thoughts contrary to the Word of GOD.  It relies on human reasoning to gain traction as well as the cravings of the flesh.  Whatever it can muster up as a resource, it will use.  We must take our thoughts captive and cast down every vain imagination:

2 Corinthians 10:5   Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Recall in verse 11 of Revelation 12 that the Sons overcame the accuser of the brethren “by  the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death”.  Let no imagination or thought contrary to HIS Word take root in your life but instead cast it down so the the Word of your testimony will be empowered to overcome the accuser.  He would have you believe that your past will keep you from fulfilling FATHER’S calling in your life but the Blood of the Lamb took care of that.  Your carnal man would have you believe you can’t survive its death and it will attempt to dissuade your from its certain destruction to the very end.  Not my will but Your Will be done FATHER!

The accuser of the brethren tried to keep the manchild from being caught up to Heaven.  This same accuser sent forth a flood of lies toward the woman.  Neither attempts were successful and once you finally embrace that reality, you will be able to deal with those thoughts that once so easily beset you and you will finally take every thought captive.  You do have that power and authority to do so…  so, use it!

The earth swallowed up this flood of lies and deceit.  FATHER will intervene with HIS Right Hand of mercy and remove any hindrance to HIS Plan for HIS people.  HE did so on behalf of the children of Israel when the Egyptian army pursued them and attempted to overtake them at the Red Sea.  We find the result in the Song of Moses found in Exodus 15:

11 ​​“Who is like You, O LORD, among the gods?

​​Who is like You, glorious in holiness,

​​Fearful in praises, doing wonders?

12 ​​You stretched out Your right hand;

​​The earth swallowed them.

13 ​​You in Your mercy have led forth

​​The people whom You have redeemed;

​​You have guided them in Your strength

​​To Your holy habitation.

This is not the only time FATHER used “the earth” to swallow up an enemy to HIS anointed.  There was a rebellion instigated against Moses by Korah in Numbers 16.  Korah was a Levite and thought that he was just as capable as Moses to walk in Moses’ calling.  Numbers 16:

3 They gathered together against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, “You take too much upon yourselves, for all the congregation is holy, every one of them, and the LORD is among them. Why then do you exalt yourselves above the assembly of the LORD?”


31 Now it came to pass, as he finished speaking all these words, that the ground split apart under them, 32 and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, with their households and all the men with Korah, with all their goods.

The point is that any opposition to Our Heavenly Father’s plan will not allowed and those who are walking out their calling will be protected.  Likewise, it you attempt to walk out another’s calling, you will be removed from it even unto death. 

On a personal level, the earth represents the soul.  When our spirit has fully embraced a Truth from FATHER, our mind is renewed and able to rationally understand the Truth as opposed to being deceived by a lie.  Deception arises when the Truth is not there to compare against.   We must be willing to expose ourselves to Truth by dwelling on HIS Living Word and HIS Spirit.  As Paul said in Romans 12:

1   I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

When we view HIS Word from the same vantage point of Love, our minds are renewed and past lies and deception are swallowed up and put behind us.  FATHER will reveal a TRUTH to us (we hear) and THEN we will see it in Scripture and watch it in action (doers of the WORD).  This renews our mind and provides confirmation to it and the Word “saves our souls”.  As we mature, we become more comfortable with the process and we are no longer moved by men’s attempts to dissuade us from the Truth we have received from Above.  Peer pressure no longer impacts us as it once did.  We then become doers of HIS Word, not hearers only:

James 1:21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror;

24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.

25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

The woman is under the full protection of Our Heavenly Father now and the adversary knows it.  For a short time she will remain in the wilderness and go through the trials and testings to bring her to full maturity in order that she may become spotless and without wrinkle.  Once fully prepared, she will be presented to the Bridegroom.

Preparing the Bride-to-be

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

Revelation 12:14   But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

Those who believe they are called to be in the firstfruits by FATHER must walk in the revelation of Love and see the church as identified by the woman as FATHER sees it in HIS loving kindness.  HE not only delivers the woman into the wilderness but nourishes and protects her as well.  This period is a time of separation and preparation.

In the book of Esther, chapter 2 we read about separation and preparation for another bride:

8 So it was, when the king’s command and decree were heard, and when many young women were gathered at Shushan the citadel, under the custody of Hegai, that Esther also was taken to the king’s palace, into the care of Hegai the custodian of the women.

12 Each young woman’s turn came to go in to King Ahasuerus after she had completed twelve months’ preparation, according to the regulations for the women, for thus were the days of their preparation apportioned: six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with perfumes and preparations for beautifying women.

In the big picture, Esther was called to deliver the Israelites from certain annihilation by Haman.  Her uncle Mordecai found out about Haman’s plot and confronted Esther who is now Queen Esther (chapter 4):

13 And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews.

14 For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

15 Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai:

16 “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”

This story describes the theme of separation and preparation resulting in the fulfillment of one’s calling.  Esther’s calling was established before she was separated along with the other young women.  Only after the separation and preparation was she qualified to be presented to the King.  This theme is plays out in many facets throughout Scripture.  King David was placed in the wilderness to be protected from Saul:

1 Samuel 23:14 And David stayed in strongholds in the wilderness, and remained in the mountains in the Wilderness of Ziph. Saul sought him every day, but God did not deliver him into his hand

We all must be prepared no matter which group we are designated to be in.  Every one of us requires cleansing and purging and we must not be critical of those who have been blinded from the higher truths for they will have their time in the wilderness to be prepared and sustained by FATHER prior to entering into HIS rest.  HIS plan of Love for all mankind is consistent and as we look at others through the eyes of Love, their current state will no longer dictate our assessment of them.  They too will see the Glory of THE LORD in their wilderness adventure and see HIS mighty hand of deliverance in their lives.  This twelfth chapter of the book of Revelation opens our eyes to another facet of FATHER’S Love on behalf of the woman who gave birth to the manchild.  We should be able to see how FATHER finds it necessary to change the internal rather than simply focus on the external.  Many believed that FATHER would simply “flip a switch” and drop the anointing down from Heaven and then we would all be empowered to heal the masses.  Over and over we find patterns in Scripture to the contrary.

“Into the wilderness to her place” speaks of a special place reserved for the woman.  FATHER has a reservation for all of us prepared specifically for our individual callings.  We need not flee to some city of refuge ourselves or build some survivalist cabin in the remote woods away from civilization.  FATHER is fully able to protect and sustain us if we are placed in harm’s way.  HE doesn’t need our input or assistance in the process.  HE had a place prepared for the woman when she needed to be removed from the presence of the serpent.

FATHER will provide nourishment for the woman as well, she won’t starve nor will she thirst.  She will be fed spiritually in order that the serpent not deceive her or the dragon devour her.  Where does the spiritual food come from?  From Christ Who is the Word made manifest:

John 6:35   And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.

In Deuteronomy chapter 8, we further read:

2 And you shall remember that the LORD your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.

3 So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD.

4 Your garments did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years.

5 You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so the LORD your God chastens (disciplines, instructs, admonishes) you.

For FATHER so Loved the world HE gave HIS WORD to feed us and prepare us not matter what our calling!  The wilderness is where the supernatural occurs although in the natural it appears to be barren.  We leave our ability to produce behind and rely on HIS ability to provide for us.  Our carnal man who would manipulate and negotiate for higher wages, lower costs, and better terms is removed from the scene.  In its place is FATHER’S provision brought forth in the abundance of good fruit.  HE is the One who can take a barren womb as Sarah’s and bring forth a son of Promise.  HE did the same for Isaac’s Rebekah as well as Leah who brought for Jacob’s first son.

The preparation of the woman requires that she set aside past revelation, doctrines, creeds, and customs for they were all left at the border of the wilderness.  New revelation of HIS Living Word is what sustains the woman just as it has sustained you and me as we have been maturing these past years.  The revealing of Christ will come to all mankind in their order and timing for every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess as a result of seeing Him!  Each day we should expect new manna to come forth rather than hoard the old manna which is in a decaying state.  Preparation is for bringing you up to your very best in all aspects just as Esther was only brought before the king after she had been given the best of adornments and perfume.

The “time and times and half a time” is an indication that there is a limited time for the woman to be placed in this situation.  The number seven represents Spiritual perfection and half of that number represents a partial or limited timeframe.  Each and every attempt where man has tried to use the literal timing by converting, assigning, and assessing, has come up short.  These numbers used in a literal sense have failed to produce the manifestation of the Kingdom as predicted by numerous “prophets”.  Let us not focus on the external time frames but instead place our emphasis on the internal maturing process.  FATHER will bring forth HIS Kingdom at HIS appointed time and will not do so in response to man’s projections.  If I separately predict each year and each day of the year, I will finally be right and can claim success.  Just don’t consider the other thousand times I was wrong.  At some point, FATHER will proclaim to each of HIS unique children at the end of their personalized preparation, “Now is the time!”

Just as in the days of Esther, the Bride has been separated for her time of purification and is fed by the perfected Sons who make up the Body of Christ, Jesus being the Head.  This time of preparation is for cleansing and purifying in order that she might be presented to the Bridegroom without spot or blemish for that final marriage feast.  She too has an integral role in these end times.  Let her arise for her place of habitation is being readied in great anticipation.  Let us return to the book of Esther:

2:9   And the maiden pleased him, and she obtained kindness of him; and he speedily gave her her things for purification, with such things as belonged to her, and seven maidens (Spiritual Perfection), which were meet to be given her, out of the king’s house: and he preferred her and her maids unto the best place of the house of the women.

The preparation of the Bride will begin soon.
