Overcoming the Opposition

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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