Measuring Up

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

Revelation 21:15 And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall.

16 The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal.

17 Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.

18 The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.

19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,

20 the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.

21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

Twelve is the number of government and order in Scripture.  There is no randomness or chaos but instead everything is now in Divine order.  The Glory of FATHER has expanded out to the Lamb’s Wife or New Jerusalem.  The Body is now adorned with the breastplate of righteousness whereas in the Old Testament only the High Priest wore the breastplate of twelve stones.  This is the same breastplate spoken of in 1 Thessalonians chapter 5:

5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.

7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.

8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.

This breastplate has Love associated with it for the Bride was given this beautiful breastplate to cover her heart.  No longer will disorder be allowed to penetrate her heart but only righteousness will come forth and proclaim order in all the earth.  This Bride has taken on the Divine Nature of FATHER and is now describe as pure gold, fully transparent where no hidden agenda can or will be found in her.  The wall or outer covering is made up of the overcomers as referenced by the number 144, the number of resurrection.

The city is equidistant in length, width, and height and this references a full and complete Spiritual measurement.  Paul spoke of Love using these same terms in Ephesians chapter 3:

14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,

17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,

18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height

19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

There is much discussion about what each stone means and there is no question that FATHER has a purpose for the type and location of each stone.  But let us focus on the big picture of the adornment of the Bride.  When Love is the primary motivation, no expense is spared and only the best and most representative will be the adornments.  The Beloved Bride of Christ is arrayed for all to see.  Isaiah 61 prophesies of this glorious event as righteousness prevails on the earth as the Bride comes down from Heaven:

10 ​​I will greatly rejoice in the LORD,

​​My soul shall be joyful in my God;

​​For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,

​​He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,

​​As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,

​​And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

11 ​​For as the earth brings forth its bud,

​​As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth,

​​So the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

As the revelation of Our Lord Jesus Christ comes into is fullness on earth, the glory will be seen by all.  There will be no question of what is happening as the light overtakes all of the darkness that has prevailed until now.  The darkness between the two ages is only temporary and those who are prepared will return with the brightness of HIS coming to overtake this darkness.  Those whose lamps were trimmed were found to measure up and were accepted.  Now the Bride has been measured and found to be fully perfected for the presentation to all who dwell on the earth.  The five wise virgins have kept their oil of their first Love trimmed and readied for the Bridegroom’s return,  Now the results of all that preparation is coming forth to all the earth.

The city is now pure and transparent.  The Love and righteousness emanating from the Throne has now overtaken the entire city.  Light and life have swallowed up darkness and death.  There are no more hidden agendas of man but only the transparency of FATHER Divine Intent.  The tree of the knowledge of good and evil is no longer the source of fruit eaten by mankind.  The measurements are complete.  The full and complete revelation of Our Lord Jesus Christ is at hand!

The Reality of Inflation

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Even though the government is reporting low inflation, most of us in the rest of the country experience something much different:

Describing The Bride

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Revelation 21:9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”

10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.

12 Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

13 three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.

14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Once again, the messenger associated with the bowls of judgment returns to John to move his focus toward the Bride.  This bride is depicted as a city.  What is a city?  It is the dwelling place of a corporate group of people who want to dwell together in unity, peace, and safety, not being isolated by distance of any type.  This New Jerusalem is the Body of Christ with Jesus as the head.  Revelation 21:14 happens to be the 31,068th verse of the Bible.  Within this number is a mystery revealed.  Bonnie Gaunt did an excellent study on the numbers of the universe and the number 3,168 IS the prime number of the universe.  In studies of this nature you disregard the 0.  The numeric value of Lord Jesus Christ is 3,168 and that number provides the primary number when measuring our universe. (see )

A gate is an entrance found within a wall or separation.  The Old Testament tribes denote whom the Law was given and this Law dealt with the outward behavior.  Adhering to The Law allowed restricted entrance to the presence of FATHER.  However the twelve apostles were given the understanding and Divine Intent of The Law- Love.  Love is the foundation of the Body of Christ and it separates the Body from all other inhabitants.

The Body of Christ has the “glory of GOD” all about her.  Why?  She has the revelation of Love which is the Light unto all the world.  Jesus spoke to the multitude in Matthew chapter 5.  He openly disclosed the mystery “to be”.  This state “to be” is in lieu of “doing”.  After He disclose the be-attitudes, He then declared the result:

14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Old Jerusalem was the city where the Temple was located.  FATHER’S Presence was at the center of this city.  The new city is represented by the indwelling Presence of FATHER in every aspect of the Body of Christ.  Only Love can cause FATHER to be invited as an Indwelling Presence, not hope or faith alone.  Love is the key to being found among the Glorious Body.  John had this revelation and reality is what he wrote in 1 John chapter 4:

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

8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love

I continue to bring this passage before you so that there is no question what is the most important focus in your daily walk.  A Bride’s most important attribute is her Love for her Dearly Beloved for He is her first Love.  Everything else is secondary.  Read the Songs of Songs with this in mind.  You can spend countless hours looking for some hidden nugget of knowledge found in each chapter of Revelation.  I could have spent paragraph after paragraph dissecting words for their hidden meanings yet you would have missed the big picture.  This final Gospel is all about Love and the culmination and maturity of the Bride of Christ being joined to together with Our Lord Jesus Christ being the Head.  The high mountain depicts the highest Kingdom.  This Kingdom has as its King Our Lord Jesus Christ.  His authority supersedes the authority of all other kings and kingdoms.  His Bride takes on His Name and thus shares His power and authority over all.  The government depicted by the twelve tribes was incomplete but when you add the revelation given to the twelve Apostles who were specifically give the revelation of Love found in the Law, restoration of all mankind could now come forth.  FATHER’S Love has been revealed as the endgame and the Bride brings forth the light (or revelation) of this Truth to the earth.

The Bride is described by the jasper stone being clear.  This stone described Our Lord Jesus Christ back in Revelation chapter 4:

3   And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.

Now the Bride has fully taken on His Character of Love and has become “one” with Him.  She is pure and without blemish to the point of being transparent or clear.  Oh what a glorious sight for all the earth to see.  This is not only good news, it is great news!  The Revelation of Jesus Christ is being revealed for all the earth to experience.   Now is the time!

It Is Done!

Sunday, March 29th, 2015

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

2   Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3   And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.

4   And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

5   Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

6   And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.

7   He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.

8   But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

The three major feasts point to the three major harvests.  Each of these harvests have the three major classifications of people depicted: The overcomers, the church, and the sea of humanity.  Love is not wasteful and every vessel created by FATHER will be utilized and restored in some fashion.  Nothing will be fully discarded.  The Potter may have to rework the clay but in the end, the clay is formed into a vessel of honor.  Remember, we all started out as vessels of dishonor.

The tumultuous sea of humanity is no more.  FATHER’S great grace and mercy have removed all the inhabitants of the sea and restored them to HIM.  Among those in this sea are: the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars.  Their sin and lawlessness are to be fully purged from them so that they can become inhabitants of the new earth.  Paul understood this great Plan in Romans chapter 8:

18  For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

19  For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

20  For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope;

21  because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

22  For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.

23  Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.

“Thy Kingdom come” has been the prayer of billions and John is shown the reality coming forth in the Revelation of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  In the wondrous majesty of FATHER’S Plan, the current age will come to a close.  The Bride is being made ready and the revelation of Love is being manifested for the whole world to see.  The sea will be drained of its inhabitants who are unworthy to attend the marriage feast but we can rest assured that FATHER will purge all of mankind of its unrighteousness through the refiner’s fire.  As men’s eyes are opened, they will weep in sorrow for their past acts but those tears will be lovingly wiped away.  All things will pass away, behold all things become new.

FATHER’S Love is true and faithful.  We can trust HIM Who Loves us unconditionally.  HIS Divine Intent is without variation:

James 1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Jesus Christ is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.  I believe the Gospel of John to be the first Gospel as he begins this Gospel with:

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

Now John the Beloved is tasked with writing the final Gospel:

Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John, 2 who bore witness to the word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw. 3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

This final book brings forth the fruition of Good News!  John sees into the spiritual realm and the plan is fully laid out in the Spirit for him to record.  Its mysteries are kept in place until the initiated are ready for them to be revealed.  These mysteries have been hidden in plain sight and FATHER knew that men would wrongly interpret these mysteries by their soulish intent and perspective.  The Key to opening the mysteries is found within the revelation of Love, FATHER’S primary character.  Jesus Himself proclaimed He is the Alpha and Omega.  We must embrace that reality as we prepare for the new Heaven and the new earth.  Whether we embrace it or not, it is coming.  Those who know FATHER are being prepared, those who don’t will have quite an awakening at the appropriate time.  Love is the key.  Think about the following:

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.

8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

Can it be said any clearer than this?

The Book of Life

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Revelation 20:11  Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.

13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.

14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

Nothing, no man or woman, could stand in FATHER’S Presence.  No adversary, no beast, no devil… nothing!  It amazes me that men think they have any power and authority other than that allowed by FATHER.  Acts of defiance only serve to reveal that blindness in men.  Nobody is able to stand before the magnificence of the Creator of all existence.

Our bodies retain “memories” of when a toxin entered into our energetic bio-field.  When Dr. Speckhart was alive, he could inquire of the body about when a specific toxin, bacteria, or virus entered into the person’s body.  I experienced this inquiry firsthand when he was testing me for DDT.  Without me telling him, he tested me and discovered that in 1959 this chemical entered into my body.  Back then, DDT rings were painted on trees at the local park and we climbed those trees while playing.  Our bodies are constantly “recording” events and surpass the super computers’ ability to store.  The recording of events is constantly occurring throughout the universe in various forms.  Nothing is truly hidden.

The Book of Life is tied to the Tree of Life.  The other books are tied to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  The other books focus on soulish and fleshly records whereas the Book of Life records our acts which are led by HIS Spirit of Love.  The mature Sons’ acts are recorded in the Book of Life.  These acts of Love originate from FATHER’S Divine Intent and promote life.  The dead works of men have no place in this book.  These are the same works where Jesus proclaimed He never knew them:

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!’

The Book of Life contains no lawless acts even though men might judge their acts to be worthy of inclusion.  Men’s rationalization from a viewpoint of carnality will not pass muster.  As we fully submit to HIS Will and Plan, our acts will be recorded in the Book of Life.  Those acts are known by FATHER because HE initiated those acts out of HIS Divine Intent of Love.  This is why it is critical for us to “wait” on THE LORD until HE shows us an action to take.  We do this instead of “doing” out of our own soulish thinking, hoping that we we do might “stick” and be acceptable in HIS Sight.

The sea giving up its dead refers to those who walk according to the flesh and are part of the sea of humanity.  Those in the depths of the sea are those who lived fully by the carnal flesh.  The lowest level of this walk is represented by the term “Hades” or hell.  When you are in constant and severe lack and craving, never having any fulfillment of any type, you are surely in a personal hell.

All men have experienced the process of death from the moment they are born.  They were subject to the Adamic curse:

Romans 5:17   For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.

The second death refers to dying to the flesh and thus becoming Spiritually alive.  This is only accomplished through the process of purification.  Our fleshly nature must die so that our Spiritual nature may live.  It is counterintuitive to the mind of man but is that pathway to everlasting life.  Just as the seed must “die” in the earth in order for life to spring forth, we too must die to the earthly nature in order to Spiritually be alive.

FATHER is the only One Who can judge us and our acts for it is HE who initiates the acts recorded in the Book of Life.  Acts apart from HIS Intent are ultimately burned up in the lake of fire and are purged from us.  This is truly an act of kindness by FATHER in order to cleanse us from all unrighteousness in order that we might by fully reconciled unto HIM.  Just as the prodigal son returned and was restored to his father, all of us will be restored to Our Heavenly Father.  The only question is in what order it occurs. 

There are those who submit early.  They are quick to separate themselves from unrighteousness.  The barley harvest represents this group for it is easily removed from the chaff by the action of “winnowing”.  Winnowing is defined: to free (grain) from the lighter particles of chaff, dirt, etc., especially by throwing it into the air and allowing the wind or a forced current of air to blow away impurities.  The Holy Spirit easily moves in and among those who willingly submit.  They quickly embrace being led by THE SPIRIT.

There are those who receive salvation but never come to the fullness of being led by THE SPIRIT.  They are represented by the second harvest of wheat.  Wheat is harvested by “threshing”.  The seed is separated from the chaff by “beating” it for it does not easily give up the chaff.  Those who are “religious” are quite content to stay in their designated pew and let someone else hear THE FATHER for them.  They are content to be in the second group to be reconciled to FATHER.

The final group of mankind, those who reside in the tumultuous sea of humanity, are represented by the final harvest of grapes.  Grapes are harvested by being “pressed” or trodden down.  This final harvest is relatively extreme when compared to the other harvests.  Nevertheless, even the fleshly-minded will finally be harvested.  Their flesh will be removed so that their life will come forth and be reconciled to FATHER.  Love does not waste anything!

Rebellion crushed

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Revelation 20:7  Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison

8  and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea.

9  They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.

10  The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

There will be those who will continue to resist the Love of FATHER and retain their “independence” and stature.  They choose to remain blind because of their unwillingness and fear of dying to the flesh.  They are no different than the children of Israel who want to return to the bondage of Egypt:

Numbers 11:4   Now the mixed multitude who were among them yielded to intense craving; so the children of Israel also wept again and said: “Who will give us meat to eat?

5 We remember the fish which we ate freely in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic;

6 but now our whole being is dried up; there is nothing at all except this manna before our eyes!”

There will always be those who want to feed their souls and flesh rather than their spirits, even when they see the mighty works of FATHER.  This last 1,000 years denotes the final test of maturity.  We have 4,000 years associated with Passover, 2,000 years associated with Pentecost, and this last 1,000 years associated with Tabernacles.  This is a time of rest for those who have ascended into the fullness of their calling.  They have embraced their royal robes of righteousness and walk in an inner peace that is beyond man’s understanding.  They have no problem in taking on the whole armor of FATHER and dealing with the fiery darts of the adversary as Paul urged in Ephesians chapter 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.

The name “Gog” means mountain and the name “Magog” means land of mountains.  Those who are set in the high earthly places will come to challenge the Elect who have been given power and authority to judge mankind.  They will attempt to “encircle” those who FATHER has chosen to bring the Light into the world.  They will use manipulation, human reasoning, and appeal to the lust and pride of men to dissuade those who dwell on the earth to follow the light.  However, FATHER’S Word will come down from Heaven and devour their soulish intent.  They will be exposed of the vanity they walk in.  They will be unable to resist the fiery Word coming forth out of the mouths of the Elect.  Their flesh will be “burned up” and will never again have the power it once claimed in its deception of man.

The term “forever” is connected to the idea of always and never.   The flesh will never by victorious over the spirit.  The spirit will always be victorious over the flesh.  Since the flesh will always lose in its attempt to rise up against the Spirit, it will suffer as in defeat.  The lake of fire is the purifying agent to remove the flesh from man in order to bring forth Divine nature.  Removal is painful to the flesh and the flesh will certainly and forever suffer by definition.  That is a good thing.  Removing a splinter from the finger is painful and necessary for the healing to come forth and restoration to be complete.  We must “detoxify” from the soulish and fleshly thoughts and actions as we prepare ourselves to go before the Throne of FATHER.  Those who walked in a temporary soulish and exalted position may resist for a time but in the end they will succumb to the Holiness of THE LORD.

This final Age will be one of consuming the last attempts of worldliness.  Perfection only comes when the dross is fully removed.  When moving from 99% to 100% pure, the fire must be increased by seven-fold for that last impurity has the greatest resistance to removal but in the end, it is worth it.  The final rebellion will be crushed.

Potassium Iodate

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

As you know, my focus has been on the revelation of Love.  This does not mean that I disregard everything else happening.  Since 1948 when the Latter Rain movement occurred, many have been awaiting the conclusion of this age of Pentecost.  I have heard many predictions of when that event will occur and many of those years have come and gone.  In the meantime, the world grows move dangerous everyday as sin and lawlessness abound just as those who are maturing in righteousness reach their conclusion as well.  I am at peace about when FATHER will deploy the anointing of power and authority to bring this age to a close.

What happens if we are still years away?  Simply be prudent.  If there is a possibility of nuclear war, should we be prepared?  Each of us takes precautions everyday to steer clear of danger.  I have purchased potassium iodate as a safeguard for my overall family.  It has an extended shelf life.  I hope to never have a need to break a seal but I would rather have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

You can acquire this product at

I decided to write this blog after reading:

I have deep respect for Paul Craig Roberts.  The older you are, the less concerned about being “politically correct”.  You must judge for yourselves what Love would have you do.

PS  I carry a bottle when I travel as well.  I would hate to be a thousand miles away from my inventory if an event were to happen.  I was in San Antonio at a technology conference when 9/11 occurred.  I had to travel to OKC by rental car since my flight was cancelled.  Those who lived in New York had a two day bus trip to get home.   Ugggh!

16 Hour delay

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

As some of you know we had a couple of tornadoes last evening.  We were without electricity for about 16 hours due to downed power lines thus no blogs could be written this morning.  Until you have no electricity, you don’t think about how accustomed we have become to the simple expectation of flipping a switch to turn on a light.  Without cable, internet, etc. life gets simple quickly.  We had our evening Bible study by lantern and ended up getting 10 hours of sleep… not bad.

Now back to the hustle and bustle of the “electronic” life!

The First Squadron

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015

Revelation 20:4  And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

5  But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

6  Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

The mind wants to paint a picture of what is communicated and then interpret it according to its own understanding by inserting biases and perspectives based on personal experiences, observations, and teachings.  However, the purpose of a vision is to reveal something that surpasses the mind’s faculties and John was given the charge to write what he saw.  The book of the Revelation of Our Lord Jesus Christ has a theme of Love, jubilee, restoration, and reconciliation… first the spirit, then the soul, and finally the body.  Spiritual perfection and maturity is the overall theme and is pointed to by the number seven used throughout the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.  Time and space are no issue to FATHER yet our minds want to lock HIM into the time/space continuum.

2 Peter 3:8  But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

9  The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

FATHER’S timing should be of no great concern if you are focused on HIS Love relationship with you.  Enjoy the journey rather than being anxious about the destination.  Those who are embracing HIS Love are those whose thinking (foreheads) and corresponding acts (hands) are consistent with walking in Love toward FATHER and others.  These are the ones who are reaching Spiritual perfection and know FATHER.  They have surpassed man’s understanding and creative abilities (six thousand years) and have focused on the final period of spiritual perfection (seventh millennium).  Only those who cross the finish line can be awarded a medal for finishing the race.  Only those who endured the wilderness and remained faithful and trusted in FATHER’S Divine Intent for the children to inherit the Promised Land were able to fully receive and embrace their inheritance.  The last obstacle to overcome is death.  It is counterintuitive to the mind to embrace the fact that life swallows up death in the end.

2 Peter 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

11  Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,

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

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

Both Peter and John were given the revelation of a new heaven and earth, the old must pass away.  That looks great in theory but who wants to embrace the actual transition of the unknown?  Who wants to be in the midst of the upheaval when that fateful day comes?  Only those who Love and fully trust FATHER.  They will submit to a final test where the old man (satan) will attempt to impede the final transition from death to life.  Just as Jesus was unwilling to accept anything to prevent the full painful experience of death on the cross, the true overcomers will without hesitation choose HIS Life and Love over any alternative.  Those who choose the first resurrection are the ones who Love HIM more than themselves and their own lives.

Power and authority are given to those in the first squadron who have been called to be priests and are able to minister with the full anointing of Love.  They are the ones who are found closest to the Throne and know FATHER in the most intimate manner.  “I am my Beloved’s and HE is mine” has true meaning to those this close to THE THRONE.  Their trust is without question and they know that HE will flow through them as they minister to mankind.  Time is not a factor to them for they look not to the mind’s past notions of the future but have become fully pliable to move according to the moment by moment leading of FATHER’S Spirit within them.  They look to Love rather than be loved and exalted by others.  They look to serve rather than walking around with an air of entitlement.  These are the ones who will reign with Christ as others are being processed into maturity according to their particular timing. 

Whether you are of the first resurrection or your particular time is later, be not concerned for FATHER’S Love supersedes time and space and you will not be “left behind”.  HE will reconcile you at the perfect time according to your unique and special situation.  That is how Love operates and it will surpass your greatest expectation!

Satan bound

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

Revelation 20:1  Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

2  He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years;

3  and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.

The three feasts periods follow the pattern of 4 +2 + 1, that is to say that the  Passover Age was 4,000 years, Age of Pentecost is 2,000 years, and the Tabernacles Age is 1,000 years.  The number six represents man and seven represents Spiritual perfection and completion.  This last “1,000” year period is for the final perfecting of mankind for the purpose of complete restoration to Our Heavenly Father.  During this time, the adversary is bound up and can no longer plague men and distract them from being restored to FATHER.  On a personal level, the final phase of your maturing process overcomes the soul and the flesh inherent in man.

The word “Satan” has been exalted among the religious realm to evoke fear in men and women.  This figure has been promoted in the minds of men and has been assigned  power and authority and  the ability to be everywhere at once.  Only FATHER has these attributes, none else.  Interestingly enough, Numbers  chapter 22 provides us a key to the name “satan”:

22  And God’s anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.

This word “adversary” in the above verse is the Hebrew word satan.  The word means- adversary, one who resists.

Once we ate and are eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, we have become independent of FATHER and HIS Way.  When we submit to FATHER because we Love HIM, we begin eating of the Tree of Life.  That independent nature in the hearts and minds of men is an adversary to them becoming Sons of FATHER thus the adversary is in us, not some horned being in a red suit with a pitchfork.  We must cast down this adversary within us.  When that is done, satan is cast out of our heaven, or spirit.  The only reason the devil would appear to be everywhere is that the adversary has been found within each of us.

Jesus made this point when He chastised Peter who had no understanding about the plan of Jesus’ death and resurrection:

Matthew 16:23  But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

Mark 8:33  But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.

Did Jesus run scared when confronted by the adversary?  No, He rebuked the carnal nature of Peter that rose up against the plan of FATHER.  In the wilderness and at the end of the forty days, Jesus rebukes the carnal nature attempting to move Him away from FATHER’S plan:

Luke 4:8   And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

This adversary called “satan” is that adversary to FATHER’S Love plan and will plague men until he is no longer exalted in their spirits and souls.  This adversary is also known as your ego who wants to be in control.  It is time for this adversary to be bound once and for all.  It is time for us to be victorious over this adversary that would plague us every day if possible.  As we focus on FATHER’S Love for us at an individual level, as we walk with HIM and trust HIM, HE will anoint us in the third Baptism and will empower us to remove and cast down this adversary into the bottomless pit.  I believe this key represents the Key of David, this key being the revelation of Love.

Once Love has bound up the adversary within us, we will no longer be deceived by the devices of deception.  Finally, satan will be bound!
