The Science of Healing and Quantum Faith (3) (Audio) Timelines (Our thanks to Deb and husband Will Horton, who majored in Physics.) (David's notes in red) Wikipedia defines “quantum” as: “In physics, a quantum (the plural ‘quanta') is the minimum amount of any physical entity or physical property involved in an interaction. The fundamental notion that a physical property can be "quantized" is referred to as "the hypothesis of quantization". This means that the magnitude of the physical property can take on only discrete values consisting of integer multiples of one quantum. For example, a photon is a single quantum of light of a specific frequency (or of any other form of electromagnetic radiation). Similarly, the energy of an electron bound within an atom is quantized and can exist only in certain discrete values. (Atoms and matter in general are stable because electrons can exist only at discrete energy levels within an atom.) Quantization is one of the foundations of the much broader physics of quantum mechanics. Quantization of energy and its influence on how energy and matter interact (quantum electrodynamics) is part of the fundamental framework for understanding and describing nature.” Willard says that an “element” (or “particle”) of time is not yet defined in science. However, the Bible does define a particle of time. It is the “twinkling of an eye” in (1Co.15:51) Behold, I tell you a mystery: We all shall not sleep, but we shall all be changed, (52) in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. According to Strong's, “moment” is from átomos (from 1 /A "not" and 5114 /tomṓteros, "to cut") – properly, not able to cut (divide) because too small to be measured, like a "split second"; an "instant; an indivisible moment of time, too short to measure" (Souter). Deb: If it's indivisible, then that means it is in a wave form. Schrodinger's Cat: Re: The 10/27/23 Friday UBM Live Broadcast As David started his explanation of what the factious satanists had done to sacrifice Eve Brast and how she had been snatched out of her grave in the woods where they buried her, by an angel over the UBM angels, named Baruch. And how she had received another body, how some of the factious died yet came back only to die again, and many other events that had occurred involving opposing timelines, I was beginning to freak out. I thought maybe David had been invaded by some New Age spirit and was going down the path of transmigration of the soul, but as he continued, I realized I was hearing "Schrodinger's Cat as described by David." Wikipedia says: “In quantum mechanics, Schrödinger's cat is a thought experiment, sometimes described as a paradox, of quantum superposition. In the thought experiment, a hypothetical cat may be considered simultaneously both alive and dead, while it is unobserved in a closed box, as a result of its fate being linked to a random subatomic event that may or may not occur. This thought experiment was devised by physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1935 in a discussion with Albert Einstein to illustrate what Schrödinger saw as the problems of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics.” So I emailed David about the broadcast and my initial concern, along with a link to an article with the best layman's explanation of the Schrodinger's Cat paradox that I could find. But when David tried the link, it came up "404 Page Not Found." After David replied to my email and I tried it again, that link came up "404 Page Not Found" for me, too. Well, it was there for me or I couldn't have read the article and copied the link and sent it to David. Then suddenly I realized that the Lord was actually verifying the premise of Schrodinger's Cat, which is that something can be there and not be there at the same time. Why and how is that possible? (When the Lord first spoke to me of two opposite timelines running parallel at the same time I did not understand. As time went on I understood that the good believers timeline was actuated by our faith in believing we have received what we ask for. Mar 11:23-24 ASV Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it. (Speak to the mountains that hinder your path and remove them like unbelief.) 24 Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye received (Greek) them, and ye shall have them. (So we see that everything you pray and ask for believe you have received it by order of Jesus. This is the believer's timeline. The other timeline is the unbeliever's timeline which is under the curse. What Quantum Physics or Mechanics has proven is that the whole creation is set up to answer our prayers of faith. Our experiences in this regard are parables that help us realize the necessity to know what faith is and to use it.) The least technical scientific explanation I can give you of the Schrodinger's Cat paradox is that merely by the act of observing something, the observer does indeed affect what is being observed. (We see in our minds eye what we want or need when we ask for it.) You may possibly have run across this in a Science News or Scientific American article where they discuss how those observing a complex experiment may inadvertently affect that experiment because they are looking for a specific outcome. In some cases, multiple observers may each obtain a different outcome because that was the outcome they desired to find, so multiple observers are able to cause multiple outcomes. What is seen, or what is called "reality," actually does depend on the observer, i.e. the faith of the person to see the thing they have asked for. And that matches what Jesus said in (Mat.9:29) ... According to your faith be it done unto you. Here are the pieces of Barry Rothman's arkcode.com write-up where the Bible describes altering timelines by reversing them. [Beginning of copied Rothman section.] “The 37th chapter of Ezekiel calls to mind what would be seen on a film if an army were suddenly killed, fell to the ground, then started to rot and decompose. There's just one problem – Ezekiel 37 describes what would be seen if the film were run in reverse. That is, it seems to portray resurrection as a process akin to the reversal of time. But while Ezekiel is interpreted by some as metaphor, 2nd Kings 20:8 -11 is a very different matter. The incident in question is as follows: (2Ki.20:8) And Hezekiah said to Isaiah: “What shall be the sign that the LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up to the house of the LORD the third day?” (9) And Isaiah said: “This shall be the sign to you from the LORD, that the LORD will do that thing that He has spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or back ten degrees?” (10) And Hezekiah answered “It is a light thing for the shadow to decline ten degrees, nay, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees.” (11) And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the LORD; and he brought back the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down on the dial of Ahaz. The story of how Isaiah, with God's help, reversed time (or the spin of the Earth) is also found in Isaiah 38:8, which states, "Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the dial, which is gone down in the sun-dial of Ahaz, to return ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down." The BACKWARD description mentioned earlier with respect to the film analogy can be seen in Ezekiel 37:1 to 14: (Eze.37:1) The hand of the LORD was upon me, and the LORD carried me out in a spirit, and set me down in the midst of a valley, and it was full of dry bones; (2) and he caused me to pass by them round about, and, behold, there were very many in the open valley, and, lo, they were very dry. (3) And He said to me: ‘Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, You know.' (Eze.37:4) Then He said to me: ‘Prophesy over these bones, and say to them: O you dry bones, hear the word of the LORD: (5) Thus says the LORD GOD unto these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. (6) And I will lay sinews on you, and you will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am the LORD.' (Eze.37:7) So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and a commotion, and the bones came together, bone to its bone. (8) And I beheld, and lo, there were sinews upon them, and flesh came up, and skin covered them above; but there was no breath in them. (Eze.37:9) Then He said to me: ‘Prophesy unto the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath: Thus says the LORD GOD: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.' (10) So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, and they were a very great host. (Eze.37:11) Then He said to me: ‘Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel; behold, they say: Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are clean cut off. (12) Therefore prophesy, and say unto them: Thus says the LORD GOD: Behold, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, my people; and I will bring you into the land of Israel. (13) And you shall know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves, and caused you to come up out of your graves, O my people. (14) And I will put my Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land; and you shall know that I the LORD have spoken, and performed it, says the LORD. RESURRECTION IN TORAH AND TALMUD. The picture that the Torah paints of resurrection is again one that resembles the reversal of time. In Deuteronomy 32:39 we read, "See now, that I am He - and no god is with me. I put to death and I bring life, I wound and I will heal, and there is no rescuer from My hand." The Babylonian Talmud Sanhedrin (91b) discusses this verse. It states, "Our Rabbis taught: I kill, and I make alive. I might interpret, I kill one person and give life to another, as the world goes on: therefore the Writ states, I wound, and I heal. Just as the wounding and healing [obviously] refer to the same person, so putting to death and bringing to life refer to the same person. This refutes those who maintain that resurrection is not intimated in the Torah." With respect to the arrow of time, the normal sequence would be healthy wounded still alive dead. But the sequence in Deuteronomy 32:39 is dead brought back to life living, but wounded healed. This again looks like a reversal of the arrow of time.” [End of copied Rothman section.] Deb: Notice that if time can be stopped and then reversed, then time also has the characteristics of a particle. Also, Barry Rothman didn't include the most famous time stop ever, which is when Joshua commanded the sun and moon to stand still, because the sun and moon responded to the spoken words of faith. (Jos.10:12) Then spake Joshua to Jehovah in the day when Jehovah delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel; and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; And thou, Moon, in the valley of Aijalon. (13) And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, Until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stayed in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day. (14) And there was no day like that before it or after it, that Jehovah hearkened unto the voice of a man: for Jehovah fought for Israel. (Barry is quite right, a reversal of time would bring back your old body at a younger age. But this is not the case as we know from Eve's body and the gifts that came with it. This is not a resurrection of the old body but a new body given by God.) Eve's New Body (I believe Eve's new body shows us what the Bride will have.) Deb Horton: I couldn't sleep and just kept pondering about Eve's new body. At the Pot Blessing, I talked to David about the two verses I shared with Terri and he agreed. He also said (1) he couldn't explain everything in a 2 hour broadcast, so I fussed at him about his choice of words because people could take them the wrong way just as I initially did and (2) he said that the Lord told him Eve's body was so defiled He wouldn't resurrect it but gave her a new body instead. (2Co.5:17) Wherefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold, they are become new. I went to the Greek and it could mean a completely different body. Terri McGinley: I asked and got a “no” (for a resurrection of the old body). I asked if Eve had a completely different body and got six heads in a row. I originally got four and asked for two more to confirm a “yes”. (Eve was given a new younger body (This is not a glorified body. This was a resurrection to a physical life and hence it is a physical body.) Her spiritual woman was pulled out of the grave after two days of being buried and was given a young completely healthy body. Her spiritual woman is her spirit and the part of her soul that was born of God. Whereas her old carnal man was her flesh and the part of her soul that was unregenerate, which God said burned up. Her body was not taken from the ashes of her old body because God said they were defiled. Ashes are pure from disease, germs, etc. But they came from the old man so in the spirit realm they are defiled. I believe the DNA was more in line with the Lord's. When we eat His Body and drink His Blood, He said that we have His life. I have been seen in dreams in such a body, too. I believe it is the restoration of years under the curse mentioned in Joel 2 and the "restoration of all" ("things" was not in the Greek). Meaning all of the fully sanctified ones in Acts 3:21 who will be completely restored. Just as Eve typed the Bride in many dreams, I believe the Bride will all have this regenerate body when the out-resurrection comes with the spiritual resurrection of the Man-child to the throne. She has a body like she would have wanted. She looks mostly like original Eve but younger and prettier. Her hair which was died red is now naturally red. She has no hair on her legs since she hated shaving it and her legs are more slim. She also has wonderful gifts now, like Jesus had, like reading minds and seeing things in the Spirit anywhere. Her discernment is great. I was told by the Lord that she was almost unique on earth because of her physical and spiritual makeup. I asked if she ever had a symptom of sickness or pain and she said, “never”. It appears she is not under the curse. Matt's dream below shows her to have a special spiritual ministry for UBM. We have already seen some of this. For instance she is able to look in on our enemies.) Terri McGinley asked: Is this where someone came back into a different body or am I just missing it. I received 2 tails for No. (She was given by God a completely new body that was similar in looks but without characteristics she did not like.) So I asked for a verse by random computer and received (Act.2:38) And Peter [said] unto them, Repent ye, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ unto the remission of your sins; and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. What do I need to repent of? I received (Php.3:20) For our citizenship is in heaven; whence also we wait for a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: [But look at the next verse & completion of the sentence:] (21) who shall fashion anew the body of our humiliation, that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, according to the working whereby he is able even to subject all things unto himself. I just don't know. The Bible says there's nothing new. (Meaning it has happened before. Melchizedek had no earthly lineage. Heb 7:3 without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like unto the Son of God, abideth a priest continually. We are the body of Christ and we are being conformed to His image. The Double Slit Experiment Time (or the perception thereof) is also both a particle and a wave. Example: As soon as you say, "Now," your "Now" is your past and you are in your future, so technically, everything that can/will ever happen is happening all at the same time. Here's the link to a more layman's explanation per Willard: https://www.space.com/double-slit-experiment-light-wave-or-particle Excerpt: “The double-slit experiment is one of the most famous experiments in physics and definitely one of the weirdest. It demonstrates that matter and energy (such as light) can exhibit both wave and particle characteristics — known as the particle-wave duality of matter — depending on the scenario, according to the scientific communication site Interesting Engineering” (which is the site that Michael found). “According to the University of Sussex, American physicist Richard Feynman referred to this paradox as the central mystery of quantum mechanics. We know the quantum world is strange, but the two-slit experiment takes things to a whole new level. The experiment has perplexed scientists for over 200 years, ever since the first version was first performed by British scientist Thomas Young in 1801.” https://interestingengineering.com/science/what-is-the-double-slit-experiment-and-why-is-it-so-important Coming Resurrections Eve's New Job Matthew Stewart 11/4/23 (David's notes in red) I had this dream the morning of November 4th. I dreamt that we were in the middle of a regular, local meeting, and David was teaching. But then I had a vision within the dream: It was like the time before the meeting where everybody fellowships. I saw Leon was resurrected and sitting in a chair with his usual expression on his face. And I thought, “Leon's back!” Then I looked over and saw another man that had gone to heaven sitting there as well. In the dream I knew him, but when I woke up, I didn't remember who he was. Then I looked and saw Eve sitting in a chair, very meek, reserved and humble. I remember thinking that “They're all back! They're all coming back!” (And it happened at a local meeting.) Then I turned and looked into the center of the room where there was a commotion going on. I went over there, and Amber was slowly physically materializing from the ground up. After she was fully formed, she said hi to me and I said hi back and everyone was excited. So I went to look for Eve and she was getting ready to leave to go back to her place to do some work for the ministry. So I followed her and her work place was in outer space. (A job “in heavenly places in Christ.”) It was a big floating house in outer space (Cyber space), from which you could go there freely without a spaceship or special equipment to breathe. So I followed her up into space to her house and she went to work on a computer to get something done for the ministry. And I thought to myself, “This is cool!” (Notice that Eve is higher up the timeline than the rest of us because at the moment she is further into the future on the same believing timeline than the rest of us. Eve already has her new body which we will have in the future. To prove this she was going to come to our meeting and she was late. We were already worshipping and I was guiding her in, speaking to her in the spirit, which we both have a gift to do. I told her which roads to take which were just two and what road to turn on to come to the address of the property, which was clearly marked on the front of the building. We were worshipping as I talked to her in my mind, which can also be done with words. There were many cars out front and we were pretty loud inside. She said, I am there looking at the address on the building and no one is there. I said, can't you hear the noise and see all the cars. She said there are no cars and no noise and no one is there. I walked out of the meeting in front of everybody and out the front door and saw no Eve. She said I am here at the same address and street. What the Lord told me was that until we got our new body we would not be in the same time even though we were on the same timeline. She was ahead of us in heavenly maturity as far as her body was concerned. Also she has tried to come to my house to talk to me and Michael 3 times. I would ask her where she was because it was taking too long. She would identify things along the way showing she was getting closer. Then I would ask her “where are you now?” because she should have been here. She found herself back at her apartment vehicle and all and we both were confused. At the out-resurrection, they and us, will all be at the same time and on the same timeline because we will all have the same body at the restoration of all. Then the vision ended and David was still teaching. So I raised my hand to tell David the vision I just had, but David told me to wait until he was done with his teaching. Then I woke up. (This is showing when the teaching with the former rain anointing is over the Man-child will be resurrected spiritually to the throne to begin the latter rain anointing of the Soloman Man-child.) When speaking or thinking a conversation with people in the Spirit it is very clear even when speaking to someone on the other side of the earth or in heaven or in hell. This is the only way to speak to our missionaries in a Muslim land that is not dangerous for them because they hack their phones and emails. The angels told us they were going to give us supernatural methods to get the gospel out in the near future. It is happening. I spoke to Amber in heaven. She told me to tell Brandy she is coming soon. Only once have I seen an interruption of this gift and it was God ordained. I was trying to speak to leaders on the unbelieving cursed timeline and they couldn't hear me. This happened with Jesus also. I found out later that the fleshly carnal men on that timeline who were traitors are strengthened when you acknowledge them. This we found out with Kevin when he came back we had to ignore and renounce him so he died as God said. The old man must die for the spiritual man on the believing timeline to live. “As the outer man is decaying the inner man is renewed day by day.” “Reckon your selves to be dead” “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body”.) Amber's Return Flight Anna Stewart 11/19/23 (David's notes in red) My dream started before Amber had died. I had no knowledge in the dream that she had ever died. She was sick but still able to move around for herself. She took a flight somewhere and was now soon scheduled to return. (From heaven) We were discussing who would pick her up from the airport. I volunteered to go but Debbie said she'd pick her up since she'd already be there (Meaning Debbie would be back home with us to pick up Amber. She just came back from her trip to see family. So Amber will be here soon with the rest of the out-resurrection.) We agreed but then I was attacked with thought that her flight might be delayed. I cast those thoughts down and thought, “No, she is going to arrive on time with no delays.” Well she definitely took a flight to heaven, but praise God she's coming back! And it appears this will be soon? If nothing else, I believe it is an encouragement that's she's coming and to cast down any thoughts of it being delayed. May we all be counted worthy to see this thing through to the end! Deb Horton: Time also exhibits the characteristics of both a wave and a particle. Example: As soon as you say, "Now," you are in your future and your "now" is your past, so technically, everything that can ever happen in creation is happening all at the same time, which perfectly supports the concept of different timelines and holding fast by faith to the promise. So in other words, Amber is already returned. The problem is that we have to have the eyes to see her at this time. I think Anna's dream (and many other dreams) are helping us to see this now! May the Father multiply our faith as the stars of heaven! In Jesus' Name, amen. “Amber IS Going to Arrive on Time” Deb Horton Some 50 or so years back, I simultaneously experienced two timelines running at different speeds. Here's what happened. Our neighbors down the street, Sue and Denny, were going to give us the swing set that their children had outgrown and so Denny called to let me know that he would be coming over with it that morning. The phone rang. I picked up the receiver and said, “Hello.” I heard Denny say, “Hi, this is Deh...” and I was gone, thrown out of my body. I found myself standing under the shadow of what I just assumed was the wing of an airplane. There was barely enough light to see more than shadows and the wind was just howling and groaning. (Yes, that's the classic description of the astral plane.) I don't know why I wasn't scared to death. Everything around me was either concrete or tarmac and I was in the middle of speaking with some man. Well, not speaking. We had to shout over the noise of the wind. There was only one other man that I knew named Dennis back from when I lived in D.C., and although I couldn't really see who this man was, that's who I thought it was. We had to have been talking for at least three to four hours when I heard, “nee,” the second syllable of Denny's name. I was back in the kitchen with the telephone receiver in my hand like nothing had happened. Next to no time had elapsed. As David likes to say, “God always starts on time to finish on time.” Cutting The Python Marie Kelton 11/20/23 (David's notes in red) During the morning meeting, David was talking about the two timelines and that in the bad timeline the people are dead to God's ways. I had an open vision of a python with half of its body coiled up. The other half with the head was lying on the ground dying. I then saw a hand holding a cleaver knife; it cut the body connected to the head apart from the coiled part of the body. (The part of the body with the mouth and teeth is the unbelieving bad timeline who are the factious and other failed people who will eventually die off under the curse for lack of faith and good confession. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Mat 12:36 ASV And I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.) A factious woman we know is on the bad timeline and thinks it's the only timeline until God took her to hell and showed the factious satanist leaders and their head Kevin burning in hell. She was told this was her timeline end if she didn't repent. Alternate Time Island Anonymous 11/20/23 (David's notes in red) In my dream I was on this desert island with David Eells and we would somehow translate on and off the island to normal land. It was really nice having this, like a private island and freedom. However, a couple that fell into faction were also on the island and we could see them but they couldn't see us, even if we stood next to them. Deb: (Luk.16:26) And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, that they that would pass from hence to you may not be able, and that none may cross over from thence to us. We saw them moving around and living on the island but where they were was all dark colors and the parts of the island they moved on, was as if it were a different island with thorns and not nice colors and difficult areas; the land seemed dark and cursed and haunted. Deb: (Heb.6:7) For the land which hath drunk the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them for whose sake it is also tilled, receiveth blessing from God: (8) but if it beareth thorns and thistles, it is rejected and nigh unto a curse; whose end is to be burned. But the island we were on was colored and beautiful and not cursed, even though this was the exact same island the factious couple were on. I felt that they didn't even want to be able to see us, and they couldn't at all, but we could see them. They were not able to get off the island, they were stuck on it, but David and I could freely leave the island as we desired. (The island had all the opportunities of Quantum Physics and if you see and believe you will receive but they can only see their cursed timeline. 2Co 4:3-4 ASV And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled in them that perish: 4 in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not dawn upon them.) It was kind of like two different realities but as one. The two of us had the choice to see both realities as we desired, but the factious couple could only see the one they were in and they had no knowledge or understanding of anything else. (They believe they are in the only timeline but they don't know it ends in hell.) Multiple Shifting Timelines Deb Horton: I am not the best explainer but here goes. If nothing is fixed/set/real/manifested (choose your word) until it is observed and believed, then all possibilities have to exist simultaneously. The cat has to be alive, and the cat has to be dead, and the cat never has to have been in the box, and the cat has to be having kittens in the box, and the cat has to be a yellow tabby, and the cat has to be a calico, and so on. Every possibility of the cat has to be there to meet the expectation of every possible observer being either positive or negative. Interestingly, multiple timelines seem to be appearing in movies. For example, Angel Studios has released “The Shift” as “a modern-day retelling of the book of Job. Kevin Garner gets separated from Molly, the love of his life, when a mysterious adversary known as The Benefactor sends him to an alternate dystopian reality. Will hope and faith be enough to find his way back? See The Shift in theaters December 1st.” And the Deep State media has released another movie about timelines called “Everything Everywhere All At Once.” The NPR movie review says: “Multiverses are having something of a moment, popping up in recent movies like Spider-Man: No Way Home and upcoming ones like Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. It's refreshing, then, to get a new multiverse movie this week that doesn't spring from the world of comic-book superheroes. It's called Everything Everywhere All at Once — an apt title for a movie that imagines the existence of thousands of alternate timelines, featuring thousands of alternate versions of ourselves.” So the Bible is (no surprise) correct. (Deu.30:19) I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before thee life and death, the blessing and the curse: therefore choose life, (Choose to believe the good timeline that agrees with promises in the Word.) that thou mayest live, thou and thy seed; (20) to love Jehovah thy God, to obey his voice, and to cleave unto him; for he is thy life, and the length of thy days; that thou mayest dwell in the land which Jehovah sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them. (Eze.12:2) Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of the rebellious house, that have eyes to see, and see not, that have ears to hear, and hear not; for they are a rebellious house. (Luk.8:10) And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to the rest in parables; that seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand. And I think this explains, (Psa.82:6) I said, Ye are gods, And all of you sons of the Most High. (7) Nevertheless ye shall die like men, And fall like one of the princes. We are co-creators of our life based on what we choose to believe.
Apostate Church Witchcraft (1) (audio) David Eells - 11/26/23 Merchants of Babylon David Eells In the book of Revelation, only those that have the mark of the beast can buy and sell. (Rev. 13:17) No man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, [even] the name of the beast or the number of his name. But they will not escape God's wrath in the near future. (Isa. 24:1) Behold, Jehovah maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. (2) And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the creditor, so with the debtor; as with the taker of interest, so with the giver of interest to him. (3) The earth shall be utterly emptied, and utterly laid waste; for Jehovah hath spoken this word. For the true meaning in this parable of buying and selling we must look for the hidden manna. (Rev. 2:17) He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. To him that overcometh, to him will I give of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and upon the stone a new name written, which no one knoweth but he that receiveth it. See also (Lk. 10:21). In that same hour he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou didst hide these things from the wise and understanding, and didst reveal them unto babes: yea, Father; for so it was well-pleasing in thy sight. The letter kills but the spirit gives life. (2 Cor. 3:6) who also made us sufficient as ministers of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. Jesus spoke spirit during his ministry to the disciples. (Jn. 6:53) Jesus therefore said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye have not life in yourselves; (63) It is the spirit that giveth life; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I have spoken unto you are spirit, are life. The Book of Revelation is called the testimony of Jesus. (Rev. 1:2) who bare witness of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, [even] of all things that he saw; (9) I John, your brother and partaker with you in tribulation and kingdom and patience [which are] in Jesus, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. (19:10) And I fell down before his feet to worship him. And he saith unto me, See thou do it not: I am a fellow-servant with thee and with thy brethren that hold the testimony of Jesus: worship God; for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy for which the saints are killed by the false prophets who only see the letter. (20:4) And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and [I saw] the souls of them that had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and such as worshipped not the beast, neither his image, and received not the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand; and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years. "Revelation" means an uncovering or unveiling and it is the spirit, not the letter, that does this! It is a sign (Rev. 1:1) The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show unto his servants, [even] the things which must shortly come to pass: and he sent and signified [it] by his angel unto his servant John; (2) who bare witness of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, [even] of all things that he saw. The ones who "bought and sold" were destroyed by the fire in Lot's day. (Lk. 17:28) Likewise even as it came to pass in the days of Lot; they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; (29) but in the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Paul taught that those who do evil are "sold under sin". (Rom. 7:14) For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. (15) For that which I do I know not: for not what I would, that do I practice; but what I hate, that I do. Ahab, a type of the beast, sold his soul to do evil at the instigation of the Harlot Jezebel. (1 Ki. 21:25) But there was none like unto Ahab, who did sell himself to do that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah, Jezebel his wife stirred up. (20) And Ahab said to Elijah, Hast thou found me, O mine enemy? And he answered, I have found thee, because thou hast sold thyself to do that which is evil in the sight of Jehovah. In 2 Kings 17:17 those that worshiped the Image of the beast sold themselves and caused their children to go through fire. And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah, to provoke him to anger. (18) Therefore Jehovah was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: there was none left but the tribe of Judah only. Many in these days are like "Esau, who for one mess of meat (following after flesh) sold his own birthright" (Heb. 12:16) and was rejected. (17) For ye know that even when he afterward desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected (Greek: reprobate); for he found no place for a change of mind [in his father,] though he sought it diligently with tears. Jesus rejected those in the temple (Christians in the New Testament) who bought and sold. (Mk. 11:15) And they come to Jerusalem: and he entered into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and them that bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them that sold the doves. The foolish virgins missed the Lord because they went to buy from them that sold. (Mt. 25:10) And while they went away to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage feast: and the door was shut. They obviously were used to dealing with the hirelings, the "merchants of Babylon". Jesus told his ministers "freely you have received, freely give. Get you no gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses" (Mt. 10:8-9). They had to walk by faith, with no salaries, no corruption. You can't hire God's ministers but then you can't fire them either. Some will say "Buy the truth and sell it not" (Pr. 23:23) but the truth cannot be bought with money. (Isa. 55:1) Ho, everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. (2) Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labor for that which satisfieth not? Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. (3) Incline your ear, and come unto me; hear, and your soul shall live: and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David. If the truth could be bought with money, the rich would have an unfair advantage, which contradicts what Jesus said: (Mt. 19:23) Verily I say unto you, It is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven. (24) And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. We can only buy the truth with the cost of our own life and way. (Jn. 7:17) If any man willeth to do his will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or [whether] I speak from myself. Peter said, "Thy silver perish with thee because thou hast thought to obtain the gift of God with money." (Acts 8:20) To buy a lie, you must sell your soul. In a way, all those who buy and sell the merchandise (teaching, thinking, actions) of Babylon (apostate religion) are the merchants of Babylon. (Rev. 18:11) And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, for no man buyeth their merchandise anymore; (15) The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning. The rich young ruler was bribed (bought) by materialism to not follow Jesus. Many buy convenient Babylonish doctrines like this and sell their eternal lives. (Lk. 14:18) And they all with one [consent] began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a field, and I must needs go out and see it; I pray thee have me excused. (19) And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them; I pray thee have me excused. (Mt. 13:22) And he that was sown among the thorns, this is he that heareth the word; and the care of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. They sell their soul for the pleasures of sin for a season. The treasures of Egypt are worth more than the reproach of Christ to them. (Heb 11:25) choosing rather to share ill treatment with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; (26) accounting the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt: for he looked unto the recompense of reward. We must sell our worldly life to buy our heavenly life, which is made possible by the sacrifice of Jesus' life. The body of Christ was sacrificed so that the corporate body of Christ would have power to sacrifice their lives. (Mt. 16:24) Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. (25) For whosoever would save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it. (26) For what shall a man be profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and forfeit his life? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his life? Riches will soon be worth nothing but wrath. (Eze. 7:12) The time is come, the day draweth near: let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn; for wrath is upon all the multitude thereof; (19) They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be as an unclean thing; their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of Jehovah: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels; because it hath been the stumbling block of their iniquity. (20) As for the beauty of his ornament, he set it in majesty; but they made the images of their abominations [and] their detestable things therein: therefore have I made it unto them as an unclean thing. (Rev. 6:6) And I heard as it were a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, A measure of wheat for a shilling, and three measures of barley for a shilling; and the oil and the wine hurt thou not. One reason there is such an emphasis on buying and selling is because Christians don't obey God's word and walk by faith in the area of giving and receiving. Jesus commanded us to "give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, shall they give into your bosom" (Lk. 6:38). An opportunity to give is an opportunity to receive it back multiplied or it is an opportunity to sit on or eat the seed. God gives to us not to make us rich but to "multiply your seed for sowing" (2 Cor. 9:10). (2 Cor. 9:6) He that soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly, and he that soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. God follows this with this promise: (8) And God is able to make all grace abound with you, that you having always all sufficiency in everything may abound unto every good work). On the other hand, he that sits on or eats his seed will have to buy and sell because he is disobedient and has no faith. This is where the merchants of Babylon are. They make "the Father's house a house of merchandise" (Jn. 2:16) when they peddle the word for salaries like the world. Peddling books, tapes, trinkets, chicken dinners, tours, etc., is the way of the world and for those who have an impoverished God. They make "merchandise of the word of God" (2 Cor. 2:17 in Greek). Why would anyone who believed the above promises do this? When a person is not sent by God he does not have faith that God shall supply every need (Phl. 4:19). Where God sends, He supplies. Without God's supernatural supply, people have to resort to other tactics to support "their ministry", like buying and selling. Another tactic these ministers use is to put God's people under the law to support them when the scripture clearly states that our giving is "not of necessity" (2 Cor. 9:7). Let each man do according as he has purposed in his heart (not according to law); not grudgingly, or of necessity (not according to law), for God loveth a cheerful giver. In the New Testament, God wants an offering from the heart from those born of His Spirit. God made the Old Covenant with the Jews, not the church. If a doctrine like tithing is not in the new covenant, then it was never made with you! Jesus, rebuking those under the Old Covenant, said "Woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye tithe mint and anise and cumin (even their seasoning), and have left undone the weightier matters of the law, Justice and mercy, and faith: but these you ought to have done (past tense in all ancient manuscripts and the Received Text) and not to have left the other undone" (Mt. 23:23). Jesus said tithing was of the law and in the past. Some say tithing was before the law. Yes, circumcision and animal sacrifice were before the law too but they were included in the law, and we are not under law to do them anymore. Paul also said tithing was of the law. (Heb. 7:5) And they indeed of the sons of Levi that receive the priest's office have commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though these have come out of the loins of Abraham: (6) but he whose genealogy is not counted from them hath taken tithes of Abraham, and hath blessed him that hath the promises. (7) But without any dispute the less is blessed of the better. (8) And here men that die receive tithes; but there one, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth. (9) And, so to say, through Abraham even Levi, who receiveth tithes, hath paid tithes; (10) for he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchizedek met him. (11) Now if there was perfection through the Levitical priesthood (for under it hath the people received the law), what further need [was there] that another priest should arise after the order of Melchizedek, and not be reckoned after the order of Aaron? There is no New Testament command or request to tithe because we are no longer stewards of ten percent. Jesus taught that we have to renounce ownership of the other ninety percent or we cannot be his disciple. (Lk. 14:33) So therefore whosoever he be of you that renounceth not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. "All" here means all possessions, rights, and will. We even must renounce "our" doctrine! It must be the Lord's doctrine. Since we have the Spirit we don't need a law; we are under the law of the Spirit. (Rom. 8:2) For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death. The Spirit will tell where to give and how much and to whom. If everyone gave according to the Spirit the kingdoms of men would crumble and true ministers would be supported. A person who is under the tithing law robs God because he will disobey the Spirit's command to meet the needs of the brethren around him in order to bring his "tithes into the storehouse", which to them is usually an apostate religious system that won't meet the brethren's needs. The storehouse in the Old Covenant was in the temple. (1 Kings 7:51) Thus all the work that king Solomon wrought in the house of Jehovah was finished. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated, [even] the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, and put them in the treasuries of the house of Jehovah... In the New Testament the storehouse is in the people, who are His temple. (Mt. 25:34) Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: (35) for I was hungry, and ye gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink; I was a stranger, and ye took me in; (36) naked, and ye clothed me; I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came unto me. (37) Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungry, and fed thee? or athirst, and gave thee drink? (38) And when saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? (39) And when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? (40) And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it unto one of these my brethren, [even] these least, ye did it unto me. (41) Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and his angels: (42) for I was hungry, and ye did not give me to eat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink;(43) I was a stranger, and ye took me not in; naked, and ye clothed me not; sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. (44) Then shall they also answer, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? (45) Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, In as much as ye did it not unto one of these least, ye did it not unto me. (46) And these shall go away into eternal punishment: but the righteous into eternal life. You see we are called to meet the needs of the brethren. (1Jn. 3:16) Hereby know we love, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. (17) But whoso hath the world's goods, and beholdeth his brother in need, and shutteth up his compassion from him, how doth the love of God abide in him? Giving according to the Spirit causes one to fulfill the law without being under the law. (Mt. 5:17) Think not that I came to destroy the law or the prophets: I came not to destroy, but to fulfil. (18) For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law, till all things be accomplished. For instance, a person who gives bountifully will fulfill the ten percent and more, but they do it from the heart and are not seeking to earn God's approval as those under the law. We are not righteous before God when we attempt to please Him by the law, whether tithes, observing the Sabbath, circumcision, abstaining from meats, etc. (Gal. 2:16) yet knowing that a man is not justified (Greek: accounted righteous) by the works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, even we believed on Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ, and not by the works of the law: because by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified and (3:11) Now that no man is justified by the law before God, is evident: for, The righteous shall live by faith. If we rest every day from our own works we certainly fulfill the Sabbath, without being under the letter of the law. The righteousness of the law is self-righteousness because it is powered by self but "The righteous shall live from faith" (Gal. 3:11). When ministers of Babylon put you under the law they separate you from God's righteousness and bring you under a curse. Except your righteousness shall exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees (law of tithe included), you shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven (Mt. 5:20). The law is "a yoke of bondage". (Gal. 5:1-3) For freedom did Christ set us free: stand fast therefore, and be not entangled again in a yoke of bondage. Behold, I Paul say unto you, that, if ye receive circumcision, Christ will profit you nothing. Yea, I testify again to every man that receiveth circumcision (or tithing, Sabbath, meats, etc.) that he is a debtor to do the whole law. If you are under any part of the law you are under the curse of having to keep the whole law and since that is impossible you are separated from Christ. (Gal. 3:10) For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse: for it is written, Cursed is everyone who continueth not in all things that are written in the book of the law, to do them. (5:4) Ye are severed from Christ ye who would be justified by the law; ye are fallen away from grace. Notice: those who put you under the law cut you off from Christ and grace. You cannot hear the voice of Christ and the voice of the law at the same time. "You are not under the law" (5:18). The merchants of Babylon say, "you are not under the law", when they are talking about obedience to the word, but "bring your tithes into the storehouse," when they talk of money? "In covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you" (2 Pet. 2:3). In verse one of this text we are told this is the false prophets and teachers who bring in destructive heresies (law) and deny Jesus. They deny Jesus by separating Him from His body. "Forsaking the right way, they went astray, having followed the way of Balaam... who loved the hire of wrong doing" (15). Friends, if you know a minister, one of the few, who walks by faith and freely gives the true doctrine of God, support him as the scriptures teach. (1 Cor. 9:6) Or I only and Barnabas, have we not a right to forbear working? (7) What soldier ever serveth at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not the fruit thereof? Or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? (8) Do I speak these things after the manner of men? or saith not the law also the same? (9) For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn. Is it for the oxen that God careth, (10) or saith he it assuredly for our sake? Yea, for our sake it was written: because he that ploweth ought to plow in hope, and he that thresheth, [to thresh] in hope of partaking. (11) If we sowed unto you spiritual things, is it a great matter if we shall reap your carnal things? (12) If others partake of [this] right over you, do not we yet more? Nevertheless we did not use this right; but we bear all things, that we may cause no hindrance to the gospel of Christ. (13) Know ye not that they that minister about sacred things eat [of] the things of the temple, [and] they that wait upon the altar have their portion with the altar? The Word will be our judge as to whether we are buying and selling with the world. Witchcraft In Apostate Churches Tianna Fire 12/8/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamt that we were driving through a town, but we stopped to get paper and pens from a shop. Samuel waited in the car. There was only one shop in this town that sold items, like a general store. It looked like it used to be white, but it was now a dark and dirty white and it was very old and didn't look like it was well taken care of. The building was an 1800s style house that had been converted into a shop. (The old dirty store represents the apostate church where the true Gospel that was once given is now sold. It has been polluted by religion and false leadership.) Mat 23:27 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like whited sepulchres, which outwardly appear beautiful, but inwardly are full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Luk 11:39 And the Lord said unto him, Now YE the Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the platter; but your inward part is full of extortion and wickedness.) When I got into the shop it was packed with people all standing around and there was also a very long queue. (There are many people looking for the Truth but they are not getting it from the false apostate leaders.) They had a few items for sale in the part where everyone was waiting but most of the items were kept out in the back of the shop and also in the basement, which was blocked off to the customers. (Like Mormons and JW's they hide a lot of teachings that they know are unacceptable to other Christians. They only reveal these things after they feel they have you on the hook. The false leadership in the apostate churches merchandise very little truth which they sell to the sheep because they don't have the real Gospel to give them. Mat 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye shut the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye enter not in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering in to enter.) (Col 1:26-27 even the mystery which hath been hid for ages and generations: but now hath it been manifested to his saints, 27 to whom God was pleased to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 1Co 2:6-7 We speak wisdom, however, among them that are fullgrown: yet a wisdom not of this world, nor of the rulers of this world, who are coming to nought: 7 but we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, even the wisdom that hath been hidden, which God foreordained before the worlds unto our glory:) So, to get what you wanted you had to wait in line to ask the cashier lady if they stocked it and if they did, you had to wait around until she went and got it. (Waiting around for supplies represents the Nicolaitan error.) Rev 2:14-17 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there some that hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit fornication. 15 So hast thou also some that hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans in like manner. 16 Repent therefore; or else I come to thee quickly, and I will make war against them with the sword of my mouth. 17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. To him that overcometh, to him will I give of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and upon the stone a new name written, which no one knoweth but he that receiveth it.) There were also people in the queue who hadn't even found out if the shop stocked or even sold their item yet. (People go to the same church for years, looking for Jesus, waiting and never find what they came for and become lukewarm there just accepting what they hear.) Everyone seemed very distressed, because it was taking such a long time and there were so many people. While I was there, I didn't see anyone receive the item they were waiting for. (Many in apostasy are in distress, continuously praying for healing and provisions and for God to answer prayer, never learning how to receive their needs by faith in prayer. No one learns how to minister to others. They expect the pastor to do everything, because “he is the one in charge” in their churches. This is a part of the Nicolaitan error.) As I waited in line, I overheard someone talking about Jesus which made me very excited. I joined in their conversation, and they professed to love Jesus, however they seemed to be religious and not understanding spiritual things. But I was still so happy to be able to speak about Jesus and God's Word! Then many other people in there heard us talking about God and they confessed to love Jesus too. I was so happy that there were so many people who loved our Lord. I started speaking with this married couple who had young children and I blessed and prayed for the children. I then stood closer to them on their right. As I did, I accidentally came too close to a man with his son. This man got very angry and upset with me and I apologized, and I told him that I loved him and his son and I desired God's blessings and love and joy to be upon them both. He became offended at that, and he said he was a Christian and he thought I was rude. (NENT Php 1:9-10 And this I pray, that your love abound yet more and more in knowledge and all discernment; 10 so that ye may approve the things excellent; that ye be sincere and void of offence unto Christ's day.) (Some people are easily offended, unable to come closer to those who are full of the love of Christ. Pro 18:19 A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city; And such contentions are like the bars of a castle.) (Pro 19:11 The discretion of a man maketh him slow to anger; And it is his glory to pass over a transgression.) So I spoke blessings on him and moved on, speaking with other Christians and sharing The Real Good News. It turned out that every person in this shop was a professing Christian. The lady who worked there said that because everyone there were Christians that we should all discuss a topic. Someone shouted to discuss God's Glory! She then brought up a slideshow on a big giant screen that was behind her which had Bible verses related to Glory. People started sharing their man-made doctrine that used only partial scripture, and not the sum of thy Word. (1Ti 6:3-5 If any man teacheth a different doctrine, and consenteth not to sound words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; 4 he is puffed up, knowing nothing, but doting about questionings and disputes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, 5 wranglings of men corrupted in mind and bereft of the truth, supposing that godliness is a way of gain.) (Psa 119:160 The sum of thy word is truth; And every one of thy righteous ordinances endureth for ever.) Someone said that as soon as we start believing in Jesus that we then have God's Glory and nothing else needs to be done. Someone else said that God loves everyone, and everyone will be saved. I felt love for all the people, but I knew what they were saying wasn't true and I desired for them to know the Truth. (Mat 15:9 But in vain do they worship me, Teaching as their doctrines the precepts of men. 2Ti 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure the sound doctrine; but, having itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers after their own lusts; 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside unto fables.) I was sharing testimonies about what God has done for me and what He has shown me, and as much Truth I could without getting into teaching. They brought up scriptures and used them out of context to say that we are saved automatically when we start believing in Jesus and that nothing else is required. They also spoke about how we are already purified and it doesn't need to manifest on earth. That we will all be the same in Heaven. (The apostate church has very little truth and see only the letter, but error after the teachings of their leadership who are not filled with the Holy Spirit and many times aren't even saved. The “once saved always saved” is just one of their false doctrines. 1Ti 4:1 But the Spirit saith expressly, that in later times some shall fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons.) I was then reminded of these verses: NENT 1Co 15:39-44 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another flesh of birds, and another of fishes. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: it is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: it is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.) I knew that these verses revealed what they believe wasn't correct, I wanted to quote these verses to them but then I realized it might be teaching so I didn't say anything. I stood there confused about why all these Christians who profess they love Jesus are twisting the Word and are unaware of the real meaning. I asked God why He didn't want them to know about the star, moon, sun glory and about spirit, soul, body manifesting Jesus on earth. I then heard Him clearly say, "It's not for everyone to know." (Jesus spoke in parables to keep the truth hidden from the religious leaders and those who want to be self-justified in His day and He still does it today. Mat 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables; because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. But those who have ears to hear, will hear and understand.) So, I walked out of the shop and spoke to Samuel about what happened and we both agreed that we desired for all of them to come into the Kingdom of God, so we interceded on their behalf. (Our Lord interceded for us and we are to pray for others.) 1Ti 2:1 I exhort therefore first of all to make supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, for all men. 4 who would have all men to be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth.) Then Samuel called David Eells to ask for advice. David Eells then physically appeared in front of us. David was a little shorter than I have seen him in videos, and his eyes were a bright blue. (Psa 8:5 For thou hast made him but little lower than God, And crownest him with glory and honor; Blue eyes represent heavenly discernment of the light of truth. Mat 6:22 The lamp of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.) I was surprised that he appeared instantly, but I was so happy to see him and I gave him a big, long hug and I felt so much spiritual love for him and I didn't want to let go of hugging him. I felt love, peace and gentleness radiating from him. (Php 1:8 For God is my witness, how I long after you all in the tender mercies of Christ Jesus.) He then said, "You need to go back in there and testify of the Truth." (Sharing a testimony of what a truth did for you is permissible for women. Especially when you are speaking to lost religious people. Teaching the younger women is also permissible. Tit 2:4-5 ASV that they may train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 to be sober-minded, chaste, workers at home, kind, being in subjection to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed: Teaching men the Word should be left to the men. 1Ti 2:12 ASV But I permit not a woman to teach, nor to have dominion over a man, but to be in quietness.) So, I walked to go back into the shop, and I heard David and Samuel interceding and speaking the Word as I walked away. (As an example to us Jesus sent out the 12 and then the 70 men to teach the Word of the Kingdom. They were commissioned to go to all and be bold and stand with God and His Word. Act 22:15 For thou shalt be a witness for him unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard.) (Deu 31:6 Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be affrighted at them: for Jehovah thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Psa 118:6 Jehovah is on my side; I will not fear: What can man do unto me?) I walked past a building that was right next to the Christian store. I looked through the door and I saw a lady lying on her back on a couch. I instantly saw in spirit that she was a witch. But in the natural she looked like an attractive woman. She wasn't selling anything in this building, but it looked like she lived there. She had dark hair and light, white-blue eyes (Dark hair represents submitted to darkness. Her eyes represent a false light, which is similar to what I have seen in people in real life who are involved in the occult.) (This woman could represent church denominations and we know that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. 1Sa 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as idolatry and teraphim….) She was dressed very seductively with red lipstick, heavy eye makeup and she was wearing a crop top, a short purple skirt and long black boots. I saw into her soul and saw she was intending to do evil. (Job 15:35 They conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity, And their heart prepareth deceit. Pro 12:20 Deceit is in the heart of them that devise evil; Mar 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, evil thoughts proceed, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries…) I saw that she would physically be resting in her shop but through witchcraft in the spiritual realm, she would seduce random people who walked past this building and would come into her. She wouldn't always sleep with the people, but she would give them even more demons and lead them into deeper sin. (Demons are transferred through sex and by accepting the thoughts of lies, slander, gossip, etc., and by words of agreement with the sensual desires. (Temptations of the lust of the flesh.) We have protection from all this when we obey God and keep His commandments.) (Pro 7:5-13 That they [My commandments and wisdom] may keep thee from the strange woman, [Harlot] From the foreigner that flattereth with her words. 6 For at the window of my house I looked forth through my lattice; 7 And I beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, A young man void of understanding, 8 Passing through the street near her corner; And he went the way to her house, 9 In the twilight, in the evening of the day, In the middle of the night and in the darkness. 10 And, behold, there met him a woman With the attire of a harlot, and wily of heart. 11 She is clamorous and wilful; Her feet abide not in her house: 12 Now she is in the streets, now in the broad places, And lieth in wait at every corner. 13 So she caught him, and kissed him, … (The kiss represents her words.) Pro 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man; But the end thereof are the ways of death.) She then tried to project witchcraft onto me and I saw the witchcraft, which kind of looked like frequencies or rays of electricity come out of her to touch me. It was blocked a few feet in front of me because there was a bubble of protection all around me in the spiritual, and nothing could get through the bubble. She was surprised at this and couldn't comprehend what happened. (Those who love the Truth will be protected from their deceptions. Eph 6:10-13 ASV Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world-rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Wherefore take up the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand.) I blessed her and kept walking to the Christian shop. I was wondering why they set up a shop right next to a witch. (The apostate church is compared to a harlot because they receive not the seed of her husband. This is witchcraft.) I went back into the store and I stood at a specific corner where I could see everyone in the room. I spoke to everyone who would listen, giving my testimony of the Truth of the Word. I could see in the spirit, and through walls. I saw witchcraft projecting from the witch directly into this shop; it came out like tentacles and would wrap around a person and quickly pull them into where she was. It seemed that if the person's will and desire was to go where the woman was, they'd be taken. People were left in the shop if it wasn't their will to follow her. (1Sa 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as idolatry and teraphim. Because thou hast rejected the word of Jehovah,... Hos 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge…) (2 Cor 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve in his craftiness, your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity and the purity that is toward Christ.) I saw the long tentacle grab onto one Christian man, and he became aroused, and he ran out of the shop and into the other women's shop. I then saw it happen again, but differently. This next person was not taken by physical arousal, but they had a weak spot of coveting, and they were convinced that by going to the witch, they would get all the money they wanted. It was as if this witch knew every person's weak spot and she would attract each person using their weak spot. (The demons see and know in the spirit realm how to work in spirit groupings of seduction using the lusts of the flesh and the sin nature. But if they would submit to God's Word and resist the devil he would flee. I have seen people drawn into faction through selfish ambition, jealousy and rejection.) I watched this lady in spirit attract each Christian out of the store one by one, like an octopus using its tentacles to draw its prey. When the witchcraft would come upon each person, they would quickly change and would run over to where the witch was, not thinking about anything else. Every time the witchcraft would come into the store, I would be supernaturally lifted up high to the roof where I could see everything. I was up so high that it couldn't touch me, nor could any human touch me. (Dwelling in heavenly places in Christ, we are protected from evil.) I watched every person in the store get taken in the spirit into where the witch was until I was left alone in the store. (The Christians in this shop were part of the apostate church and not equipped with the Spirit and Word. Having no ability to fight against the temptations of the flesh. They were seduced by the harlot and her witchcraft, so they gave into their lusts. God sovereignly protects His elect and He will deliver them from the works of darkness at an appointed time. The enemy works to tempt people away from the Kingdom of God and cause them to fall away.) Apostate Church Vanity Tianna Fire 1/26/23 (David's notes in red) I dreamt that Samuel and I were driving, and we saw this giant building to our left, sitting on a very large area of land, and it had a big cross on it. There were no cars parked outside, so it looked like no one was there. Because we saw the cross, we thought that we should leave them a Sovereign God book. So, we parked out front and went up to a window and looked inside the building. A few women were there and when they saw us, they came out quickly. We did not want to talk to them, only to just leave the book and go. One of the women that came out, was a woman that worked at the grocery store, and she was always there when Samuel went to get groceries, so Samuel knew her. Another woman was the wife of a man that kept inviting us to his church, but we didn't want to visit his church. We now realized that this building was his church. They urged us to come inside and we didn't want to hurt their feelings, so we said we would come in quickly just to see the place. When we went inside, it appeared 20 times bigger than what the outside looked like. (Like the megachurches.) One of the ladies told me to go to the children's section because I was carrying David. I honestly didn't want to, but I didn't want to upset her so I just did what she said. (Pro 29:25 The fear of man bringeth a snare; But whoso putteth his trust in Jehovah shall be safe.) I walked to the back of the building and entered this large colorful room that had an indoor children's playground, and many children running around and there were a couple of people watching them play. I felt this was vanity and a distraction from Jesus. I then saw a poster listing different activities during the week for children and one of them was like child daycare. All the activities were vanity and had nothing to do with Jesus. Samuel and I prefer having David always with us, so I said, “Well there's no reason for me to be here because we aren't doing the daycare thing, and we only want to do things involving Jesus.” So, I turned to leave and go find Samuel, but I got lost in the large building. There were so many different rooms and hallways and everything was set up weird. (The apostate church system causes confusion to ensnare people.) Then a man came running out of a room and said something with much excitement for me to go look where he just came from. I didn't want to be rude to him, so I just followed him and he led me into a massive library, and all the walls and shelves were all sorts of bright colors. I commented on how I love all the bright colors, especially the bright yellow. (The attraction of bright colors arouse the senses and emotions to please the flesh. Pro 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man; But the end thereof are the ways of death.) There were people sitting around a table discussing a book that wasn't the Bible and there were many large shelves with thousands of books. I asked him about the books and about Jesus, and he said most books here are not really about Jesus and if they were, they contained incorrect doctrine. Which confused me because this was a church, so I expected everything to be about Jesus. (The apostate church leaders write many books about another Jesus, another Gospel and merchandise the people. It's all their works of the flesh. 2Co 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we did not preach, or if ye receive a different spirit, which ye did not receive, or a different gospel, which ye did not accept, ye do well to bear with him. 1Ti 6:3 If any man teacheth a different doctrine, and consenteth not to sound words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; 4 he is puffed up, knowing nothing…) I wondered what type of Bibles they had, and I couldn't find Bibles anywhere. I thought maybe I should leave a Sovereign God book here so God can lead the right person to find it. (Hos 4:1 Hear the word of Jehovah, ye children of Israel; for Jehovah hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor goodness, nor knowledge of God in the land.) The man that led me into this room started hitting on me, and I thought this was crazy, this is a church and supposed to be brethren in Christ, and I am married. I ignored the man and ran out of there to go find Samuel, but I couldn't find him anywhere. I walked around the entire place searching for Samuel, and I saw all different types of people, supposedly Christians, although no one was talking about Jesus. I was wondering, ‘Jesus where are you? I can't find you anywhere in this place, although they say that you are here.' (Like the Shulamite in Song of Solomon: Son 5:6…I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer. 7 The watchmen that go about the city found me, They smote me, they wounded me…) I felt this whole place which claimed to be a house of God, had all the world mixed in it and the place felt corrupted and defiled and I couldn't see or feel the presence of God anywhere or in anyone. (The apostate church is a mixed multitude; the world is Babylon, from Babel, which means confusion and includes the harlot churches.) (Mat 23:28 Thus ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but inwardly are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.) The whole building layout was completely confusing and so easy to get lost but I finally found the way to get out. Once outside I noticed heaps of people all gathered around at a café, and others standing around. And there were about 20 different small shops set up with many people everywhere. (This is how the megachurches are set up to draw the multitudes to network, socialize and merchandising.) I was confused as to why no one is talking about Jesus; I felt no Spirit of God there, and I wondered why Samuel is missing? At this point I was disappointed that no one here really loves Jesus. I no longer cared what anyone thought of me anymore. I didn't want to do what they all wanted me to do, or think I had to be kind to them and agree to their requests. So, I looked up at the sky and screamed out, "Jesus!” “Jesus where are you, Jesus?!” I think everyone around me thought I was crazy but I wanted Jesus and all these people claimed to be following Jesus but clearly were not. (Some in the apostate harlot churches are looking for Jesus, but don't always find the real Jesus... Son 3:1-4 By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not. 2 I said, I will rise now, and go about the city; In the streets and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not. 3 The watchmen that go about the city found me; To whom I said, Saw ye him whom my soul loveth? 4 It was but a little that I passed from them, When I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go, Until I had brought him into my mother's house, And into the chamber of her that conceived me.) I started walking past the shops, when this toddler ran up to me and told me that his father needed a new wife and asked me to be his new mum. I kindly told him that I already have a husband and he ran back to his father. I thought this place was so strange. I looked into the shops as I continued to walk by. In one of the stores people were fighting and I thought this isn't how children of God are to behave. In another store they were selling cigarettes and things like that, and I was shocked as we knew those things were wrong. Another store had people looking at me strangely as if I wasn't from this world. (We are not of this world, as Jesus said in Joh 17:16 They are not of the world even as I am not of the world. To the average Christian, we appear out of place.) Then in another store, a man catcalled. At every store everything was completely overpriced and had nothing to do with Jesus, and no one was manifesting the fruit of Christ. I kept saying, “vanity, vanity, all is vanity.” (Ecc 1:2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher; vanity of vanities, all is vanity.) Everything in this ‘supposed church' was corrupt and had nothing to do with Jesus and I couldn't understand why. I just wanted to leave but I couldn't find Samuel anywhere. I finally got through these shops and into an area where there were no people. I asked God what He wanted me to do. He told me to go back there, and I said, “Lord nothing there has anything to do with You, and it's all corrupt and I don't want to go back.” He told me to go back and tell them all about His real Son Jesus and the Truth. So, I turned around and walked back the exact same way I came. I opened the door to the first store and shared the real gospel, and they rejected it so I went to the next store and told them, and they wanted nothing to do with it either. (Mat 10:40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. Luk 10:16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that rejecteth you rejecteth me; and he that rejecteth me rejecteth him that sent me.) I turned around and saw two police officers going around into the exact same stores I had just left. It was as if they were following my steps, however I felt they were going to the places where I shared the Truth and we're exposing the corruption and arresting the evil. (The police may be the angels. Eph 5:11 and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even reprove them;) I went into each shop sharing the Truth, but they all rejected it. So, I went into the café area and shared the Truth there, but everyone just wanted to go on with what they were doing and justifying their sin and corruption. I walked back into the children's area and library and testified of Jesus. (Like Jesus taught His disciples and the apostle Paul says in Act 20:21 testifying both to Jews and to Greeks repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 … that I may accomplish my course, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. Ministering the Gospel of Christ.) I went to every person I saw and told them the Truth which finally led me to finding Samuel who was speaking to the leaders of this church. As soon as I got next to Samuel we walked straight out to the car and left. UBM House Sanctified And Protected Tianna Fire 4/25/23 (David's notes in red) I dreamed that Michael, David and other brethren and I were living in my gramps Alan's old house. (Alan means harmony, little rock, and precious. This house represents the house of God's chosen or the elect, who are built on the Rock, which is Jesus Christ. 1Co 10:4 and did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of a spiritual rock that followed them: and the rock was Christ. 1Pe 2:6-8 Because it is contained in scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: And he that believeth on him shall not be put to shame. 7 For you therefore that believe is the preciousness: but for such as disbelieve, The stone which the builders rejected, The same was made the head of the corner; 8 and, A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence; for they stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.) On one side of the house was a very large lounge room where all the brethren would gather for prayer, Bible studies and fellowship. There was a long hallway that led to the other side of the house where all the bedrooms were located. David's and Michael's rooms were located upstairs on the next level. (In an upper room, as overseers, overlooking the others.) Upstairs, David and Michael had their own small living room area to seek the Lord and write up their teachings received from Jesus. I remember they spent very much time there seeking God together, and individually, praying and studying the Word; but they would share the Word with everyone in the lounge room in God's perfect timing. The brethren who cooked meals, would sometimes bring food up to Michael and David because they were at times so focused and absorbed in the Word and Spirit of God. All the brethren had specific chores around the property, such as cleaning, cooking and gardening and other important tasks, relieving Michael and David and others, so they could spend more time with the Lord in prayer, worship and the Word. (All the members of the Body of Christ have their gifts and individual roles to serve and edify each other. (1Co Ch. 12 and 14) Act 6:2-4 And the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not fit that we should forsake the word of God, and serve tables. 3 Look ye out therefore, brethren, from among you seven men of good report, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. 4 But we will continue stedfastly in prayer, and in the ministry of the word.) The kitchen area was in the center of the house. (Where the unleavened bread is prepared. 2Ch 7:7 Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that was before the house of Jehovah;) The house was set up on a hill (Mt Zion) on a large amount of land, approximately five acres. (grace) Outside the house was a large, covered area for gathering, and there was a lake located at the bottom of the hill. The whole property was fenced. (Protected by sanctification.) On the adjoining neighbors' side were many trees and much bush so there was decent privacy. The neighbors were not able to come over the property line even if they wanted to; it was as if there was an invisible shield or wall. (The wall is sanctification from the worldly.) They could only come in contact with us if we were off our private property or if we gave them permission to come onto our property. (If we are “off the private property” or “giving permission” this represents giving place to the enemy by any sin of unbelief, rejection, criticism, unforgiveness, willful sin, etc. When we walk in holiness (sanctification, abiding in Christ, in heavenly places) the enemy is bound and cannot legally be on our “property” (promised land.) 1Pe 5:8 Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour, 9 whom withstand stedfast in your faith…) (Isa 35:8 And a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for the redeemed: the wayfaring men, yea fools, shall not err therein.) One time I went into the large lounge room and towards the right of the room. Michael, David and some other brethren were there deep in prayer. On a table sat a laptop computer which was turned on. I looked at the screen and saw they were watching a live conference of satanists gathered from around the world. All the brethren in the lounge room were in intense spiritual warfare and prayer against it. (I felt the conference being live online represents all evil being brought into the light and nothing is hidden before God. Also, the Man-Child and Bride body are in spiritual warfare, praying down satan's faction, witchcraft and D-S attempts.) As I watched, HRC (Hillary Clinton) appeared on the laptop screen and I saw the pure evil and high level fallen angels inside of her and the presence of evil was so intense, that I had to turn away from looking at it. Sometimes the evil spiritual realm is too intense for me, so I couldn't bring myself to look at the conference anymore, but I instead just sat further away, and prayed in tongues and I was in complete agreement with what the brethren prayed, and I knew that our prayers would be answered. (We also send the angels to bring down satan and his angels dominion. We have been gaining great victories this way with much less effort as in Rev 12:7-11 ASV And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels going forth to war with the dragon; and the dragon warred and his angels; 8 and they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him. 10 And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying, Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accuseth them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death. All the brethren were in intense prayer all day until it was just David, Michael and myself and my son David, still praying at around 3am. Then I took my son David into our room at the other end of the house. Later, some brethren had to drive somewhere, and two men that I felt were like our bodyguards (angels) came to us and said the enemy was waiting for us. From the house there was a long driveway down the hill to the main road, where we could only go right to leave, we couldn't go left, there was only one way. (The Word of God, Who is Jesus, the one way path of righteousness.) Suddenly, our eyes were opened, (anointing) and we could see through walls, bushes and everything and we were able to see on the main road where some people who were against us were hiding behind a bush waiting for us (an ambush). But because we were able to see the enemy's plans, we were able to avoid the danger, pray it down and knew what to do and what not to do. (The Lord reveals the enemy and their traps, and the hidden dangers by the spiritual gifts, in words of wisdom, words of knowledge, visions and gift of discernment and the angels also tell us of them.) When it was clear they were able to continue. The neighbors in the house next door did not like us, and they were always devising plans of attack against us in some way, but by God's grace, their plans were exposed and always failed. (God reveals the curses and witchcraft of the factious and apostate leaders to us through dreams and visions, so we can pray it down.) I remember in the dream how one of these men repented to follow Jesus and he joined us. The wife of one these men also decided to follow Jesus and she was on fire for God. She was pregnant and would regularly fellowship with us bringing her five children with her. She didn't want to leave her unbelieving husband because she believed God would soon reveal Himself to him too so he would be saved. (1Co 7:13-14 And the woman that hath an unbelieving husband, and he is content to dwell with her, let her not leave her husband. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified in the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified in the brother: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. 1Pe 3:1-2 In like manner, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, even if any obey not the word, they may without the word be gained by the behavior of their wives; 2 beholding your chaste behavior coupled with fear.) There was another UBM camp a little further away in a wooded area (The wooded area represents the wilderness.) and the house was a large wooden cabin. We would regularly meet together for fellowship with the few brethren who lived there. I don't remember what their area of ministering was, but it was different from the one we were in. I remember they had a slide that went off the cabin deck and it went further down onto the property. (This cabin in the woods represents the many other places of refuge that God has provided that are scattered all over the world. Some of these may be part of the UBM ministry.)
Trials of Faith Prepare Us For Battle (5) (audio) David Eells - 11/22/23 Personalize Your Relationship Anonymous 3/1/23 (David's notes in red) With a direct relationship in Christ Jesus to our Father, there is no middleman to corrupt and steal anything. He has and His Will be done through us. (I felt that the enemy tries to get in between us and God, and steal what God has for us and what we can do for Him.) Put Me first and I will put you first forever! (I felt we need to seek Him to do our best, to give Him everything since it all belongs to Him.) (Joh 17:10 and all things that are mine are thine, and thine are mine: and I am glorified in them.) Concentrate. I can reveal and guide you in all things. Trust in Me. I have every good gift for you. (I was reminded that the Lord can bring to our memory what I thought I had forgotten. And I also felt that when we make a mistake to never look back but to focus on the finished product.) (Psa 119:27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: So shall I meditate on thy wondrous works. Joh 14:26 …he shall teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said unto you. Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he shall guide you into all the truth:…) Keep trying on task. (Attempt and don't worry about how, it's about why. We willingly do so as He puts it all in us.) Keep trying with desire. (Seeking Him and His Will will be done.) (Mat 6:33 But seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteousness;… Pro 2: 4-5 If thou seek her [Wisdom] as silver, And search for her as for hid treasures: 5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of Jehovah, And find the knowledge of God.) Keep trying as Christ in us would so we would be refined for the Kingdom.) (Col 3:17 And whatsoever ye do, in word or in deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.) There is much to learn and do, just concentrate on the moment. Be at peace and do not get too far ahead of the current day. (Mat 6:34 Be not therefore anxious for the morrow: for the morrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Jas 4:14-15 whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. What is your life? For ye are a vapor that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall both live, and do this or that.) Lay down the blocks and build for the glory of the Kingdom. We are to give our all to the Lord to build His Kingdom.) (Psa 145:12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, And the glory of the majesty of his kingdom. 1Th 5:11 Wherefore exhort one another, and build each other up, even as also ye do.) (We can give nothing for God without offering our old life as a burnt offering on the altar of the fiery trial. We cannot offer to him a blemished sacrifice of a life. Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service. 1Pe 2:5 …to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.) Am I important to you? Then say so! (Let us confess God to man and Glorify Him to man.) (Mat 10:32 Every one therefore who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven.) Be patient and faithful. (which are fruits of the Spirit.) (Heb 6:12…but imitators of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.) Lambs among wolves...But I went before you and made it possible for you to conquered in all trials! (He suffered before us and enables us to have a relationship with our Father.) (Luk 10:3 Go your ways; behold, I send you forth as lambs in the midst of wolves.) Nothing you are experiencing is harder than what My Son suffered and showed His Love for you. See and know by faith how close I am to you. Cherish it! Question yourself, Is what you are doing out of love? Not how others can love you and benefit you, but what are you from their point of view? Would I approve of what you are doing to them? (1Co 16:14 Let all that ye do be done in love. Gal 6:2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.) Why do you want to do it? In love for me? Or for self or because of fear? Or is it because I Am and love conquers all? (Php 2:3-4 doing nothing through faction or through vainglory, but in lowliness of mind each counting other better than himself; 4 not looking each of you to his own things, but each of you also to the things of others. 1Jn 4:16 And we know and have believed the love which God hath in us. God is love; and he that abideth in love abideth in God, and God abideth in him.) Many have come before Me and failed. (I felt there have been many who thought they were righteous and deserved to be accepted into heaven, but were denied for their self-works that were not for his Glory.) (Eph 2:8-9 for by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not of works, that no man should glory.) Rest in the promises and know why I need you. (He paid the ultimate price for us and has heavily invested into us to meet the need for those whom He has chosen.) Even a tiny light can overcome, overwhelm and destroy the pitch-black darkness! (I was reminded of a watch I wore when I was a child that I pressed a button and it was bright enough to see in the dark at night.) (Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness apprehended it not.) Speak and be the image of My light and My Word as My Son has given you example. Be strong to never let anything change the Christ in you. (We are conquerors by His faith!) You have two ears. You can't shut your ears but you can shut your mouth! (Two ears and one mouth show that we should be quick to hear and slow to speak.) (I felt very convicted on what and when I should speak anything, or if I should say anything at all.) (Psa 141:3 Set a watch, O Jehovah, before my mouth; Keep the door of my lips.) Be strong. Nothing can separate you from Me! Do not let the darkness be able to cover the light! (Mat 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a lamp, and put it under the bushel, but on the stand; and it shineth unto all that are in the house.) You are dear and nearer to Me than even the breath you have inside you. (Rom 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?...) Reach up! Grab hold of me! Do you not see I await you, and that for an infinite eternal love relationship forever? Come, let us sup together! (Eph 3:16-19 that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that ye may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man; 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be strong to apprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye may be filled unto all the fulness of God.) LED Anonymous 1/8/23 I saw myself as an LED on a giant electronics board. There were billions of chips, transistors, diodes all sorts all linked in intricate ways and many other LEDs too. Then I saw the LED as myself, light up as a small flicker. Then it was more consistent and brighter. I felt that the power flowing through me was able to make the LED light shine, when aligned correctly to the way of the Lord, the great Designer. Soon the LED grew so bright that nothing else of the bulb could be seen other than this intense light. Then the Lord placed His Hand on it and the LED was able to spread to other areas on the electronics board as the other LEDs were lighting up and getting brighter. NENT Joh 8:12 Again therefore Jesus spake to them, saying, I am the light of the world: who followeth me shall in no wise walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life. Mat 5:14 YE are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Mat 5:16 Thus let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in the heavens. Eph 5:8 for ye were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord: walk as children of light . Video Game Revelation Anonymous 2022 (David's notes in red) I know this revelation may seem strange, but I used to play video games and one particular video game came to me through a vision. (I used to play before I was saved, but since I have repented and have nothing to do with them ever again.) God is like the video game designer and He is also the one playing the game. He has control over all things in the game. (God only is sovereign and in control of ALL our trials that have been specifically and personally designed for each of us, and He alone is sovereign over the devil and our enemies.) I saw a video game that was a top-down view over a vast area of control. I saw how there were many things being done as though looking on the face of the Earth and all the people and what the Lord created. As I was watching, I saw many developments and changes occur. The perspective then zoomed in on one particular person who was the size of an ant. The person was in a frantic state, shaking their arms about and yelling up at the sky as though to ‘the Man in charge' of the view from above. (We should not be fearful or doubtful during trials, agreeing with what we feel and see but instead only believing and speaking God's word, and casting down everything contrary to the Word. We should ask God to give us grace to have faith during a trial.) 2Co 5:7 (for we walk by faith, not by sight); 2Co 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. The people were crying and asking for help with words in bubbles of all the things they could not do. Then just as quick as they cried out and were answered, they ran off and did more of their own things. Job 35:9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions they cry out;… I felt this had to do with the Christians who call out to God for help, and once that thing is fixed, they quickly forget the Lord and runs off to please their flesh. (Psa 106:13 They soon forgat his works; They waited not for his counsel, 14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, And tempted God in the desert.) 1Pe 5:7 casting all your anxiety upon him, because he careth for you. Heb 4:13 And there is no creature not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and laid open before the eyes of him with whom we have to do. Choose The Wild West Wilderness Samuel Fire 4/17/23 (David's notes in red) I saw a vision of a pros and cons list. First on the right was written ‘Christ' and on the left was ‘antichrist'. Written underneath the Christ column was ‘Christ is Life', and on the opposite column were the words, ‘death', and ‘fake life that has an end.' Christ antichrist Christ is Life ‘death', ‘fake life that has an end' I then saw myself standing inside an old western-style saloon bar and I ran outside onto the dirt street into the hot sun, and I knew that, “This is life!” (Joh 10:10 …I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.) The bar doors were still flapping, and I didn't even want to look or go back into that saloon bar. (Through the trials we are given a choice to choose life or death, the spirit or flesh, Jesus or the devil.) (I.e., Leave the beast kingdom of delusion of spirits and enter the “wild west” wilderness with Christ to find real, eternal life. Jos 24:14-15 Now therefore fear Jehovah, and serve him in sincerity and in truth; and put away the gods which your fathers served beyond the River, and in Egypt; and serve ye Jehovah. 15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve Jehovah, choose you this day whom ye will serve;…) (Col 1:9-14 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray and make request for you, that ye may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 to walk worthily of the Lord unto all pleasing, bearing fruit in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 strengthened with all power, according to the might of his glory, unto all patience and longsuffering with joy; 12 giving thanks unto the Father, who made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light; 13 who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love; 14 in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins And Col 1:21-23 And you, being in time past alienated and enemies in your mind in your evil works, 22 yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and without blemish and unreproveable before him: 23 if so be that ye continue in the faith, grounded and stedfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel which ye heard, which was preached in all creation under heaven; whereof I Paul was made a minister.) Power In The Word Samuel Fire 4/28/23 (David's notes in red) I saw (in a vision) how fire too close will melt the fake, plasticky flesh; the carnality of vanity. (Submitting to God's Word in trials and tribulations cause the old man to die and for the spirit of Christ to shine through us even brighter.) (Psa 119:28 My soul melteth for heaviness: Strengthen thou me according unto thy word.) Then as the length of exposure increases, the flesh will then catch fire and burn, and then (the fire will) spread to whatever is involved, like to witchcraft evil and those in the apostate corporate body. (Isa 33:14-15 The sinners in Zion are afraid; trembling hath seized the godless ones: Who among us can dwell with the devouring fire? who among us can dwell with everlasting burnings? 15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from taking a bribe, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from looking upon evil:) Judges 15:4-5 And Samson went and caught three hundred foxes, and took firebrands, and turned tail to tail, and put a firebrand in the midst between every two tails. 5 And when he had set the brands on fire, he let them go into the standing grain of the Philistines and burnt up both the shocks and the standing grain, and also the oliveyards. (The strong man, Jesus, burned up the fruit of the old man to conquer our Promised Land.) Then I saw a soldier wielding a buckler to defend at the perfect time, without any indication of an attack. When a threat is exposed to the elders, there is then the full arsenal to be set to defend the whole body; much like a commander of an army organizing the troops (A buckler is smaller for personal close contact fighting. A shield is for a much larger attack to remain in position.) Psa 35:2 Take hold of shield and buckler, And stand up for my help. (His Word is a defence we must utilize to defend and fight for His Kingdom in unison as one Body in Christ.) Psa 91:4 He will cover thee with his pinions, And under his wings shalt thou take refuge: His truth is a shield and a buckler. (These are These are wisdom of the Word to defend against the wiles of the enemies.) Replace The Dross Anonymous 4/29/23 (David's notes in red) I heard in prayer: “Pause. Think about Me and what you are doing. Nothing in this world is perfect yet and there is brokenness everywhere. Bits and pieces fall off things all the time. (Psa 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, And bindeth up their wounds.) When filled with My Love and Holy Spirit and led by Christ, there can then be growth into the eternal prize I desire. Wrestle and pin down the enemy. Raise the flag of victory. (The Lord has given us victories over our enemies on many fronts here and overseas. Isa 59:18 According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, wrath to his adversaries, recompense to his enemies…) The enemy has been surmising the largest possible attack to stop My Children from reaching their potential. Keep focused and look unto Me and My Promise. Remember I need you and you are indeed important to Me. How do you get rid of dirty hands? Wash them.” (Then I saw us actually applying the Blood of Jesus by faith and washing all areas and replacing everything and thought it was with His presence and victory.) Defeating The Dragon With Jesus Help Marie Kelton 10/27/23 (David's notes in red) During the worship part of the meeting, the enemy was attacking my mind but I was telling him to leave me alone. I then had an open vision of me putting on a white medieval helmet that covered my nose (helmet of salvation.) I was in a cave, there was this big black dragon. I had a sword in my hand, and I knew I was supposed to kill the dragon. The dragon tried to attack by breathing fire at me, but I was able to avoid it by stepping behind a wall (representing sanctification) that was in the cave. I then stood back in front of the dragon. I was wondering how I was going to defeat it. Then I saw Jesus come behind me, and step inside my body. Then, I was able to swing the sword and cut the neck and the head of the dragon off its body. (Jesus is the Word Who lives in us. When we speak the Word, His power defeats the enemy. Php 4:13 I can do all things in him that strengtheneth me. We are in the process of casting down the Dragon of Rev 12 as the angels fight for us and we confess the blood. Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Heb 4:12 For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword,… Act 17:28 for in him we live, and move, and have our being) The Fiery Trials Milt Green Peter said, "Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: but rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. Wherefore, let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to Him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator (1 Pet. 4:12, 13, 19). The fiery trials today are the efforts of the world, the flesh, and the devil to turn our hearts away from God. Every man will either come through the fire and be like precious gold (with a divine nature), or else he will be a vessel of wood, hay, and stubble, which is burned up. When the pressures and trials come, if we strike back at others, we break God's law and give the fiery serpents ground to build strongholds and destroy us. If anyone has a foundation built upon carnal doctrines, they have a false security. The fire will destroy all of those who walk after a form of godliness because they walk in disobedience. Anyone who stands on their carnal doctrines as a foundation is not standing on the Word of God. Their foundation is sand. They themselves are wood, hay and stubble, and in the fiery tests the fire will consume them because they have no hedge of protection from God. No other foundation except the Lord Jesus Christ can survive this fire: "But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built a house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great" (Luke 6:49). Everyone who follows after a doctrine that does not conform them to godliness is destroyed. When you have a false security, you do not act on the Word of God. Paul wrote, "Now if any man build upon this foundation, gold, silver, precious stone, wood, hay, stubble; every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire (powers of darkness) shall try every man's work of what sort it is. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ" (1 Cor. 3:12, 13, 11). That is why we need the true apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers: "For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (until Christ's love is perfected in us). That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine" (Eph. 4:12-14). God has been testing the hearts of men since the day He put Adam in the garden. He offered Adam the tree of life or the tree of death. God still tests the hearts of all creation. Only the ones who love the Lord with all their hearts and put their faith and trust in Him will survive the fiery tests of this world. All others will break God's laws and be under the punishment and judgment of the law, because their hearts love idols more than God. "The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: but chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise government" (2 Pet. 2:9, 10). We either resist the flesh and the temptations of Satan, or else we walk after the desires of the flesh in unrighteousness, in which case we stay under the judgment and punishment of God's law. Jesus said, "I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful (wake up!), and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect (because you are not being perfected in love) before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard (remember the Gospel!), and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief (in judgment), and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. He that overcometh (the world, the flesh and temptations of Satan) shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life" (Rev. 3:1-3, 5). Jesus is coming first like a thief in destruction. Jesus did not come the way the religious leaders expected him the first time. Neither will Jesus come the way the religious leaders expect Him this time. "Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see. Who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the Lord's servant? The Lord is well pleased for His righteousness' sake; He will magnify the law, and make it honorable. But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses (of the powers of darkness): they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore. Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? Did not the Lord, He against whom we have sinned? For they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient to his law. Therefore He hath poured upon him the fury of His anger and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire around about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart" (Isa. 42:18, 19, 21-25). The sleeping church is being destroyed today and they don't even know it. They will scoff at warnings such as this. The fires of destruction are already being poured out among us. The Scriptures are not enough to lead most of these people out of darkness. That is the reason that only a remnant can hear. The others will not wake up-for them it is business as usual. God warns us in His Word: "Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot: they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. Whoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it… This is how Jesus comes as a thief upon the spiritually dead congregation that will not wake up and repent in these last days. The hedge is lowered, and He no longer restrains the hordes of the powers of darkness which have been unleashed against the spiritually dead, fallen away church. If you read these Scriptures through the eyes of a carnal doctrine, you will be led to believe that the men who are taken from the bed or out of the field are raptured, rather than destroyed by the fire. This is how the deception and darkness have come upon us today. This is why people are being burned and they pay no attention. This is the fallen away church today which practices sin (lawlessness). The remnant will love the Lord Jesus Christ with all their hearts. They will be perfected in love and holiness. No one will be able to counterfeit the love that is perfected in the remnant. You will know them by their fruits. The stumbling blocks will also be evident and they will be destroyed. "Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field. But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also (tares are evident because they bear the fruit of the flesh)" (Mat. 13:24-26). "Now the works of the flesh are manifest" (Gal 5:19). When we practice the deeds of the flesh, we bear the wrong fruit and break God's law. This is how men who teach doctrines that do not conform you to godliness lead you to walk under the judgment and curse of the law. This is how the church is being destroyed in the fire today. They have no fear of God as they teach a form of godliness and become stumbling blocks to others. The blind follow the blind and never bear the fruit of love. In fact, they cannot because they are tares. "As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity (by practicing sin)" (Mat. 13:40, 41). "So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth (hate, anger, bitterness, sickness, pain, etc.) Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear" (Matt. 13:49, 50, 43). There are hundreds of different denominations and teachings in this country today and each one has its own form of righteousness. But there is only one true righteousness and that is walking right in God's eyes. When we establish our own righteousness, we do not submit to the righteousness of God. Israel departed from the law and righteousness of God to establish their own righteousness. Paul said of them, "my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God" (Rom. 10:1-3). When the wicked thinks he is righteous in his own eyes, there is no fear of God. He is blinded to the judgment of God because he has a false security. This is how millions are blinded to the judgment of the law today. "Hearken unto Me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is My law: fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings. For the moth (the powers of darkness) shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but My righteousness shall be forever" (Isa. 5 1:7, 8). The righteousness of God stands forever because only the righteous will survive. God has set up laws to destroy those who are wise in their own eyes, and will not submit to the righteousness of God. Jesus said, "I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth (remains, continues) in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit (of love): ... If a man abide not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them and cast them into the fire, and they are burned" (John 15:5,6). "Herein is My Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit (of love); so shall ye be My disciples (God's kind of agape love is the proof of discipleship)" (John 15:8). Jesus sets us free from being slaves of sin (lawlessness) to become slaves of righteousness (a pure heart): "For as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness (a pure heart)" (Rom. 6:19). Paul said, "What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life" (Rom. 6:2 1, 22). Through obedience we have a pure heart and we are perfected in love to the fullness of the measure of the stature which belongs to Christ. When the Word of God and the Holy Spirit have removed the selfish nature of Satan, we no longer live for ourselves. Therefore we have the nature of God and love others as Jesus loved us. We have laid down our lives so we can walk in God's kind of love. "Charity (God's kind of love) suffereth long, and is kind; (God's kind of love) envieth not; (God's kind of love) vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own (way), is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity (God's kind of agape love) never faileth. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity (this God-kind of Love), I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing" (1 Cor. 13:4, 5, 7, 8, 1-3). The God-kind of love is the only love which can love your neighbor as yourself: "For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself' (Gal. 5:14). The ones who come through the fire will have this God-kind of love, which is the divine nature of God.
The Science of Healing and Quantum Faith (2) (Audio) Timelines of Faith and Unbelief David Eells – 11-19-23 We have heard a good scientific and biblical explanation of Quantum Physics in part (1). I had heard about this timeline thing from the Lord first, about there being 2 timelines and that we would go into one good timeline of faith or go into the other bad timeline of unbelief. We could also be in both in different areas of our lives. And they run simultaneously side by side. The good timeline is blessing and provision from God because of justification by faith in God's promises, whether by Word, spoken word, dream or vision. I was shown that to be in this timeline one had to believe, act, and speak in agreement with the promise. Mar 11:23-24. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; (Notice it hadn't come to pass, but they're speaking it; in other words, they're not walking and talking by sight but by faith.) Notice..but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass he shall have it. (Speaking in agreement with the promises by faith brings them to pass.) 24 Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye received (Greek) them, and ye shall have them. (Believe you “Received” here is the literal Greek translation and it has the numeric pattern too. Received them is past tense even in the received text and this is because it was already accomplished at the cross by Jesus' sacrifice. The received text has a footnote that says “received”. So you're supposed to believe you already have it before you see it and then you shall have the provision. This is the key. This is the secret that is in plain sight in black and white and very clear. This brings the supernatural provisions of God down to Earth. Mat 6:10 ASV Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so on earth. I've told you, how the angel Baruch would say something and I would look around to see if it happened and it wasn't manifested. And he finally explained to me, “We angels don't live in time. We live in eternity. When we speak it, we know it is as good as done. And you all are supposed to be doing the same thing.” In other words we are to have God's faith as Abraham did. Rom 4:17 ASV (as it is written, A father of many nations have I made thee) before him whom he believed, even God, who giveth life to the dead, and calleth the things that are not, as though they were. Faith is the substance of what we need. Heb 11:1 ASV Now faith is assurance (or substance) of things hoped for, a conviction of things not seen. So we have to give God the substance of faith and be convinced we have something before we see it. This is walking in the Spirit and the Kingdom of God. This is so contrary to human nature that you just can't get many to believe it. So only those with the gift of faith from God through grace can access the provisions of God. This is where the bad timeline comes into play. This is the timeline of unbelief and its affect can be seen in those who lack all the benefits of the Kingdom of God like holiness, healing, deliverance, provisions of all kinds, etc.. 1Co 2:14-15 ASV Now the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; and he cannot know them, because they are spiritually judged. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, and he himself is judged of no man. And we also know in Jas 1:6-8 But let him ask in faith, nothing doubting: for he that doubteth is like the surge of the sea driven by the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord; 8 a doubleminded man, unstable in all his ways. Well, what he's calling double minded, is the norm for most “Christians” using the term loosely. As we can see this is why they can't get provisions from God. Those who have been talking to our missionaries in the Mideast, myself, Kathleen, Michael, and Brandy can bear witness that we have spoken to both the believing and the unbelieving timelines at the same time. I have drilled them on Mar 11:23-24 many times. The believing are blessed and the unbelieving are cursed. I asked the leader of our UBM angels, Baruch, if he could drag some of the bad timeline people into the good timeline. He has done this and some stay and have wonderful provision and some go back every time because of unbelief. When they move timelines they don't remember their last timeline or the circumstances. They believe they are the only timeline. After a time of persecution from Catholic and Jehovah Witnesses in which missionaries have been killed and the rest were in hiding they entered into the good timeline through verses like Mar 11:23-24. In the good believers timeline they have been provided money, food, housing, families restored, restoration of their ministry, the JW's have left the country because the angels took down their leadership and the Catholics are at peace with them, etc. In the bad unbelievers timeline they are still at war with both entities and they are losing. They have no money, food, housing, families restored, restoration of their ministry. They are making peace with unbelieving enemies and turning missionaries over to them to stay alive. And Father would not let us help them because we taught them over and over the ways of faith and they didn't believe. Jesus “could not do many mighty works because of their unbelief.” Jas 1:6-7 ASV But let him ask in faith, nothing doubting: for he that doubteth is like the surge of the sea driven by the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord. Rom 8:6-8 ASV For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace: 7 because the mind of the flesh is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can it be: 8 and they that are in the flesh cannot please God. Some of those in the unbelieving timeline came out and went to the good timeline because they saw the futility of it all without faith. The ambition on the unbelieving timeline was to stay alive physically. (Whereas in the faith timeline “they loved not their life unto death” which text we received this morning in Rev 12 by faith at random. There is a promise of eternal life to those who die in faith rather than unbelief. On our side of the ocean we have experienced the same thing. We had a war with the satanists who also killed some of our people through witchcraft and voodoo. They had enslaved women for their own lusts. Father had enough and told me he was going to kill the 14 satanists on Monday morning at 7:00 am at a party their leader planed where the satanists were to take advantage of their women captives under drugs and witchcraft. I asked Eve about this and she said this was exactly what Kevin (their evil leader) had planned for the day and at that exact time. So that Monday came and they all showed up expecting to do their dirty deed and all of them fell dead before they could touch the women as God told me He would do. The 14 women including Eve, who is a nurse, Baruch, Eve's angel were all witnesses of these deaths. Then the bodies disappeared as the angels took and placed them near their homes so they could be found and dealt with by family. They were from different parts of the country so it didn't show as a massacre. Here is where Father began in earnest to teach us about the timelines. Then came the test of who would believe God or walk by sight. A couple of days after this eight of the 14 dead came back to life, including Kevin, on the bad timeline. What was already revealed to me by the Lord is that we were dealing with two timelines. One would show we did not receive, because we walked by sight and not faith. The other would show that we had received and held fast to what God had shown to us. So we prayed and spoke in agreement with the Lord. We all agreed that, “No, we don't accept that they are alive because God told us they were dead so they are dead. The Lord took Kevin down.” Listen carefully now, this is important. Because we held to our faith, Kevin died again. In other words, our attention went back to the good timeline. Kevin died again witnessed by Eve. So this brought us back to the original good faith timeline where Kevin was dead. The angels were watching and reporting to me as things went back to the original timeline. Then they reported this to me while in our UBM meeting and I shared it with the saints. Four more satanists died again. The angels were watching them all and a little while later, three more died again, so they were all dead and we were back to the original faith timeline. You say, “That sounds crazy!” Yeah, I would have thought so too, but no, it's fact with witnesses. This was all a teaching by God to Show us what is happening in the spirit realm as we walk by faith or not. Let me say that there was a group of these satanists that died just one time and they never came back. There was a group as we saw, that came back and died twice. And there was one person, Kevin, who came back and died three times. All of these were painful deaths just like they dished out on others. So God had a way of causing them to reap what they sowed, even snatching them back into this life and killing them again. What they did to Eve, and the sisters, and those taken out by their witchcrafts, made God angry. And the scriptures say, and Baruch says also, that we should stand firm on the faith timeline that's ordained by God and answered with His blessings. This death of the 14 satanists was ordained by God. More tests came to teach us about the timelines. About a week later Brandy saw Kevin show up at Don's house in his truck with a backpack. So he called me and let me know that. I called Eve and she said, “his truck disappeared from in front of his apartment; it's gone.” He was planning to use Don to carry on the slander he had deceptively made through AI, as Eve was watching, but the angels took out Don's computers and phone. So once again we agreed that God said Kevin was dead so he is and sure enough he died and his truck appeared again outside his apartment as Eve witnessed. On top of this the satanists put some brethren into faction and witchcraft by using AI to make slander videos and emails. This was witnessed by Eve when she was captive there. The factious people who departed from local UBM needed to know the corruption of Kevin and his satanists. So the angels gave them all a trip to hell to see Kevin and the other satanists there suffering in the flames. The factious suffered while there and the angels spoke to them that this would be the end of their timeline too if they did not repent. Resurrection for the Righteous As I said in the unbelieving timeline they avoid physical death by all means not realizing the those who die holding fast to the Gospel will come back in a resurrection and be much stronger. The timeline of faith is blessed and the timeline of unbelief is cursed. The timeline of faith will have a resurrection. When Jesus was resurrected, as a type of the Man-child body of our day will have a spiritual resurrection, the bodies of the saints (sanctified ones) came out of the tombs. Mat 27:52-53 ASV and the tombs were opened; and many bodies of the saints that had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming forth out of the tombs after his resurrection they entered into the holy city and appeared unto many. The crucifixion or death of self of the Man-child, closely parallels the revealing and death of the sons of perdition, the Judases. And that's because both Jesus and the Judas died pretty pretty close to the same time.. Three days later Jesus , as a type of the Man-child resurrected along with “the out-resurrection from among the dead”. Let me start with the Judas'. So when these are all dead, then comes the resurrection and catching up to the throne of the Man-child. We witnessed these traitors here and overseas among our missionaries and they were dying spiritually by their own hand as Judas did. And of course, when the death of Judas was finished, there was three days and then the catching up to the throne of the Man-child, Jesus. I was told days ago that the Judas' among the righteous timeline were all dead so now comes the resurrection and the Lord had told me before this that it would not be a literal 3 days, which represented the death, burial, and resurrection. And also what happened with Jesus when He was resurrected there came the “out-resurrection” from among the dead of the saints who have died or been killed. That's in Philippians 3:11. I'm going to use the Numeric English New Testament because it has God's numeric pattern in this text. Php 3:11 if somehow I may attain unto the out-resurrection from the dead. That's what the numeric pattern says. It is a resurrection. It comes ahead of the main resurrection, and it is an out-resurrection (from among the dead). So many of these saints died in our day at the hands of the Judas sons of perdition who joined hands with the Pharisee JW's and Catholics and killed their own brothers. When This resurrection comes these saints will come filled with the knowledge of who was right or wrong from heavens prospective, and filled with the Spirit and power to bring revival. So we see that those who die in faith are better than those who live in unbelief and treachery, My Proofs And for those who don't believe Father changes timelines according to our faith, I've already shared some of my experiences with this. I was traveling across country and arrived at my airline departure gate, late. And the walkway was removed and the plane door closed already and it was getting ready to back out. And they said it was too late to board and I would have to go back to the check-in counter and get another flight. I ran to do this praying the whole way. And they gave me another ticket. Everything happened so fast, I just grabbed it up and took off running and I was looking at it as I was going. So I ran back praying only to find out that it was the same flight I had just left. The walkway was connected and the people were still boarding. So I boarded. Father reversed the time. I told Him, “I got to make this Father, I have to make this. I have to be in this city over here. I'm going to give the teaching over in this city over here. I got to have this.” So Father reversed the timeline and I got on the same plane that I was rejected from. And another time I was traveling West across the country in my vehicle and praying and suddenly I looked at the town that I was driving through, I said I'm not supposed to be here. How did I get here? I found that I was a long way further down the road, maybe two to three hours down the road and I didn't fall asleep either, and I wasn't even sleepy. Some people say, “Oh, you just fell asleep.” No, you don't drive for two or three hours while asleep. So I was amazed that God did that. Another time I was dealing with a young girl who found out that she was pregnant and her and the boy were too young and not capable of raising a child and I knew it. So as I prayed for an answer for her, it came to me to pray that this had never happened. And she was not pregnant. I thought, “What would God do with the baby?” Then I knew that God would not do anything that is wrong, so I can pray faithfully. God reversed the time and she was not pregnant. You ask, “God can do that?” Yes, He can, He's in control of time. He does not dwell in time. He can place you in different places in time. And that's what's happening with these two timelines. You're placing yourself in one or the other, by either believing you have received or not. Hope y'all are catching on to this. It's a tremendous revelation. All of this is a tremendous lesson to believe that we have received anything we pray for as Jesus said. And also we are to believe we have received anything we are told by God or His angels, in words, dreams, visions. If He gives you a promise and a vision or dream, it's not going to come to pass if you don't believe it. Everything is conditional. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways, think not that that man to receive anything from the Lord? Transe Vision of Opposite Timelines Samuel Fire 12/31/22 (David's notes in red) I had an experience where I think I physically passed out. My wife found me lying on the floor with my eyes open but not responding. However, I was in what I would call a real-life vision (This describes a trance vision) that went on for a few years. When I stopped having the vision, I was confused as to where I was, because the vision experience felt so real. (A timeline, or dimension, to what things are to come – and whether we are to receive or reject it.) The vision was like in the time of Jesus' ministry but in the modern world. (Time of the Man-child) There was a giant revival, and an elect group of people were physically in the world but operating in another dimension spiritually, they were separate from everything in the natural. (Walking in the Spirit and the supernatural.) I felt that this was in the future and something that is more than I can understand completely, and I have struggled to put what I saw spiritually into words and describe it in such a way that could be understood. I saw that this existence is primarily for God. (This is the timeline best described in Mar 11:23-24 and it involves walking in faith that we have received every provision and speaking it. Mar 11:23-24 ASV Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it. 24 Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye received (In Greek) them, and ye shall have them.) I felt, in such an aching urgency, we need to have a real living and interactive relationship with God. A complete falling in love again with God. We all return to Him, humbly and submit ourselves for His Will in complete servitude every day and moment. NENT Jas 4:10 Humble yourselves in the Lord's sight and he shall exalt you. Rev 2:4-5 But I have this against thee, that thou didst leave thy first love. 5 Remember therefore whence thou art fallen, and repent and do the first works (The works of Jesus and His Apostles); or else I come to thee, and will move thy candlestick out of its place, except thou repent. (Some of the Church will be reprobated when they see others acting as Jesus and they continue with their dead religion.) Eph 3:16-19 that he give you, according to the riches of his glory, to be made mighty through his Spirit unto the inward man; 17 that the Christ dwell in your hearts through faith in love, rooted and grounded, 18 so that ye be strong to apprehend with all the saints what the breadth and length and depth and height, 19 and to know the love of the Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye be filled unto all the fulness of God. Rom 12:11 in diligence not slothful; fervent in the spirit; serving the Lord; The Lord Jesus has had a personal contact with everyone who would be saved before the last day. He personally has touched us, reaching out to each person in their own unique circumstance. This has happened in the past of that person's life. The biggest thing in this life is the pursuit of Christ after this personal encounter with The Lord. If anyone knew of God personally and in their own understanding, they would choose God. NENT Rom 8:33-35 Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God that justifieth; 34 who is he that condemneth? It is Christ Jesus that died, yea rather, was raised from the dead, who is at God's right, who also intercedeth for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of the Christ? tribulation, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? I also saw that there is a reason for those who fall away. We are refined by these types of people through our journey. We are to seek The Lord when bad things happen. To turn to God in reliance in these tough trials. NENT 1Pe 1:6-7 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a little while if need be, put to grief in manifold trials, 7 that the proving of your faith, more precious than gold that perisheth though it is proved by fire, be found unto praise and glory and honour at the revelation of Jesus Christ: What I saw was leading up to approximately a few years ahead of this current time (a different time zone.) (This is a timeline that the Lord showed us and involves walking in the Spirit as in Mar.11:23-24) I saw everywhere how many people were leaving jobs and families for the Lord. News on TV and radio broadcasts worldwide were stating, they couldn't believe what was happening that many people had a realization of the truth in God. These many people just right then, instantly left at that moment, left their jobs or whatever they were doing, all to follow and live for God. Mat 4:19 And he saith unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you fishers of men. 20 And they straightway left the nets, and followed him. 22 And they straightway left the boat and their father, and followed him. 25 And there followed him great multitudes from Galilee and Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judaea and from beyond the Jordan. One person was walking along the street and happened to see the news broadcast being played on TV's that were for sale in the window, reacted and knew Jesus was the thing he was waiting for and turned about and started running. Another person was in a factory and had a radio playing while operating a machine. When he heard the news, he just reached over and switched his machine off, took off his face shield and walked out to follow Jesus. And one man, who never was home before the sunset due to his work hours, came home greeting his wife and children with such joy stating, “I quit work so we can all go straight to God!” (To follow Jesus/Man-child.) I also saw a TV news anchor reading the story on the live, and immediately after he read it, he took off the microphone and dropped his papers and just ran out the studio while on live television. There was another man who had a wife and large family, but they could not all agree with this news, but he was adamant to do this. He knew it was more important to do this duty than to stay. He grabbed a few items then left without saying goodbye to follow Jesus. Mat 19:27 Then answered Peter and said to him, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee; what then shall we have? Mat 19:29 And every one that hath left houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or children, or fields, for my name's sake, shall receive manifold, and shall inherit eternal life. NENT Eph 6:6-7 not in eyeservice, as men-pleasers; but as bondmen of Christ, doing the will of God from the soul 7 with good will; doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Everyone became more in tune through the Spiritual than the physical means. When people were led to join together for fellowshipping, they did not know where the meeting was to take place and were completely led by the Spirit. No one communicated anything, they just knew where to go and meet. NENT Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by God's Spirit, these are God's sons. Act 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was being fulfilled, all were together in the one place. The speaking of Holy tongues became so natural, the other languages like English were unnatural and were rarely used. NENT Act 2:4 And all were filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Jud 1:20-21 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in God's love, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. Life was outwardly for Christ; everything in life was to do for Christ. All we did was walk and speak the Word, and performed miracles commonly, just like as it is written. Col 3:17 And whatsoever ye do, in word or in deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. 23 whatsoever ye do, work heartily, as unto the Lord, and not unto men; Joh 14:12 Amen, Amen, I say unto you, Who believeth unto me, the works that I do shall HE do also; and greater than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father. Mar 16:17-18 And these signs shall accompany them that believe: in my name shall they cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues;18 they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall in no wise hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. NENT Joh 20:30 Many other signs therefore did Jesus before the disciples, which are not written in this book: Joh 21:25 And many other things also are which Jesus did, the which if they be written every one, I suppose that not even the world itself would contain the books written. Then I saw as though a nuclear bomb went off. But it did not affect any of the Saints, nor were even their buildings affected. It was like a parallel dimension separation occurred. It was as though it didn't happen or nor was it felt by anyone of these righteous people. Psa 91:9-11 For thou, O Jehovah, art my refuge! Thou hast made the Most High thy habitation; 10 There shall no evil befall thee, Neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent. 11 For he will give his angels charge over thee, To keep thee in all thy ways. I saw the massive flash and fire sweep through everywhere, but it was as if everyone who followed the Lord were surrounded in a protective bubble. (I was told this by the Lord and wrote it in one of the books.) NENT 1Pe 1:5 who by God's power are guarded through faith unto a salvation ready to be revealed in the last season. I then saw all sorts of bad things happening, but the bad things only affected those who had that percentage of lack of faith. For example, someone had 20% faith so 20% was protected, but the other 80% was affected by the bad things. But someone who had 100% faith had nothing affected. (This is the two timelines we have been speaking of. One was blessed because the people believed Jesus especially in Mar 11:23-24. The other was lack and the curse because of not believing this.) The trials of the Saints were not like a written exam, but the testing of the heart and soul. All the challenges took place in their life choices. NENT Heb 11:1 Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, conviction of things unseen. (Walking by sight instead of faith in the promises and our prayers will destroy many as it did in the wilderness for Israel.) Jas 1:2-4 Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into manifold temptations; 3 knowing that the proving of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience (In your faith) have perfect work, that ye be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing. I saw that Tianna and I had what resembled an internet call with Andrew and Ben S, for some fellowship, but it was without any technology. We were all communicating and seeing each other supernaturally in the Spirit. (Just as I and Eve have done for some time since the angels showed each of us at different times. But when some were in the cursed timeline they can't hear us.) We were discussing day-to-day events, and these gave confirmations to each other on each of our choices. We all were keeping according to the Word for edification. This ‘call' then led us all to go and do for Christ as a source of inspiration and joy of The Lord. NENT Act 20:32 And now I commend you to the Lord, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build up, and to give the inheritance among all the sanctified. Rom 14:19 So then let us follow after things of peace, and the things for building up one another. I saw all the people were being tested of their faith. There were big questions inwardly such as: Do they look at the Lord? What's their heart actually saying about Jesus? Do they exclaim Him as the Lord and Messiah? Do they really trust Him completely? Is my love to God sincere? (If they hear man and their flesh they not hear the Lord.) Psa 18:1b-2 I love thee, O Jehovah, my strength. 2 Jehovah is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; My God, my rock, in whom I will take refuge; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower. (As we repent and accept God's new reality we are leaving the kingdom of this world and we are entering the Kingdom of God while still on earth. Heaven starts here for us and expands to its uttermost part. A verse from two gospels show this when put side by side. Mar 13:27 ASV And then shall he send forth the angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. Mat 24:31 ASV And he shall send forth his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Notice that Heaven starts here on earth. When the King of Heaven enters you the Kingdom of Heaven is in your spirit man. Luk 17:21 ASV neither shall they say, Lo, here! or, There! for lo, the kingdom of God is within you. “As the outer man is decaying the inner man is being renewed”. These are two timelines, one where we act in the fleshly body because of Faith and the other where we act in the fleshly body because of unbelief.) Heaven and Earth meet at one place. NENT Rev 21:1-3 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth are gone; and the sea is no more. 2 And I saw the holy city Jerusalem new coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. (We are being born from above into a new Kingdom that is growing in this body. The old worldly kingdom does not exist for the faithful anymore. But we were created as spiritual beings not limited to earth for we had no need for the physical support.) 3 And I heard a great voice out of the throne saying, Lo, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he shall tabernacle with them, and THEY shall be his peoples, and God himself shall be with them: Everything seemed familiar, but at the same time it didn't make sense. We were transitioning from what was seen and understood in the carnal, to living out life in the Spiritual. NENT Rom 8:5-8 For they that are after the flesh mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit, those of the Spirit. 6 For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace: 7 because the mind of the flesh is enmity unto God; for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can it be: 8 and they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 1Co 15:46-47 Howbeit not the spiritual is first, but the natural; then the spiritual. 47 The first man is of earth, of dust; the second man is of heaven. Everyone had gone through these changes, yet a majority of the people freaked out. The saints that have the slightest percentage of Christ, go through their level of trials for the percentage that isn't in Christ to die. A small percentage of their Faith meant a great level of trials (like a newly saved (30 fold) Christian would have a greater number of trials to endure.) (In the creation of Christ in you is the good fruit of the Spirit. Unripe and rotten fruit are completely discarded. What does not conform or abide in Him is burnt up through all the various fiery trials. As the Lord increases in us we need less trials.) NENT 1Pe 1:6 -7 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a little while if need be, put to grief in manifold trials, 7 that the proving of your faith, more precious than gold that perisheth though it is proved by fire, be found unto praise and glory and honour at the revelation of Jesus Christ: I saw at one time that we wanted to buy something to drink. We were led by God to a shop; it was not the nearest or logical choice, but specifically the shop He wanted us to go to. When we arrived at the store, the Lord directed us to where all the beverages were and what type to select. As we approached the cashier with our drink, we imparted love as the form of payment. The store owner was standing there smiling at us and very thankful. It felt as if walking completely in the spirit but still in the physical realm. NENT 1Th 2:8 thus longing for you, we were well pleased to impart to you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were become very dear to us. 2Co 12:15 And I will most gladly spend and be expended for your souls. If I love you more abundantly, am I loved less? 1Th 3:12 and the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all, even as we also do toward you; I then looked back as we were leaving, and I saw another person who was at the cashier attempting to pay for their items with money. They had plenty of money, but no amount would be sufficient. They had no love to give, and they were denied and not able to buy. Pro 11:4 Riches profit not in the day of wrath; But righteousness delivereth from death. As we were driving, I saw many people stuck in traffic, but we were able to just keep on driving past them all as though we were in our own private lane, and I was wondering, ‘Why were they all in stand-still traffic?' We were still in the physical but as if we were in a whole other dimension; we were on the earth but moving above the natural laws. (This is like Jesus when He was walking on the water. Like our experience of sliding on ice down a hill and through a parked car with our truck as though it wasn't there. Our tracks in the snow and ice proved we went through the car. It is like my experiences of time being changed and I met my flight that previously was departing. Or the time I found myself much further down the road suddenly. This was a different timeline of Quantum faith.) Isa 43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now shall it spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. I then saw a great thunderstorm ahead in the distance but not in our current location. When we got further ahead, we could see it had rained but we did not get caught in the storm. I felt these trials were put in place for those who didn't have faith. (I have by the grace of God moved storms and hurricanes out of my way speaking faith which put me in the good timeline while others were not.) The intensity of the trial was according to the level of doubt and unbelief. Because we believed that the storm wouldn't affect us, it didn't. Anything was possible in this spiritual dimension. If you believed it to occur, it would happen. And if you didn't have faith, then bad things would happen. (These are the two timelines. Quantum Faith brings the good.) Only faith in God works, nothing in our own strength. If the world was in drought, and if we believed God would still give us rain, it would only rain on our property and nowhere else. God is faithful. (We can have faith and believe in the promises of God and act it out. Or we can believe in the negative and live under the curse. Mat 8:13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And the servant was healed in that hour.) NENT 2Pe 2:7-9 and delivered righteous Lot, sore distressed by the lascivious conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, tormented his righteous soul from day to day with their lawless deeds): 9 the Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment unto a day of judgment. (And Lot was removed from the curse on Sodom but his wife put her eyes on it and became cursed.) I saw non-believers attacking some Saints as a form of a trial. The Saints responded to them with Jesus and the Word with sincere love from their heart. They did not argue with the attackers, but simply gave a statement of the Truth according to the Word. (Which can be a positive confession of a promise.) NENT Heb 10:36 For ye have need of patience, that, having done the will of God, ye may receive the promise. NENT 1Pe 3:8-9 Finally, be all likeminded, compassionate, loving as brethren, tender-hearted, humble minded: 9 not rendering evil for evil, or reviling for reviling; but contrariwise blessing; for hereunto were ye called, that ye should inherit a blessing. We then had cardboard figures pop-up with a variety of offensive things. I felt they were meant to antagonize us and to cause unholy reactions. But we just pushed them all away while saying, ‘That was weird.' and moved on. They appeared very real, but the Spirit revealed the true nature of them. (Seeing and speaking the positive brings it to pass.) Act 24:16 Herein I also exercise myself to have a conscience void of offense toward God and men always. Php 1:10 so that ye may approve the things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and void of offence unto the day of Christ; I saw a shimmer as walls in the spiritual realm. Like a giant bubble that went all around everything. It was golden and clear, and I could see through to the other world of corruption. (Staying in the good timeline is protection from the bad.) While in the bubble looking out, I could see how the excluded people would be trying to get in but were denied. I felt if they were to come in, that it would pop the bubble, as they were not welcome in. (The bubble represents abiding in Christ and speaks of the Kingdom of God, and the Holy City, New Jerusalem where nothing unclean is permitted. Only those who chose to humble themselves and submit to the Word in obedience will be able to abide in this place. Those who do not do the will of God will not be permitted in.) (Rev 21:27 and there shall in no wise enter into it anything unclean, or he that maketh an abomination and a lie: but only they that are written in the Lamb's book of life. Rev 22:14-15 Blessed are they that wash their robes, that they may have the right to come to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city. 15 Without are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the fornicators, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and every one that loveth and maketh a lie.) No one would leave the bubble to go to them, as they would be leaving Christ. Only the people in the bubble had a true relationship with Christ. It was a constant death to self and to be alive in God as the inside bubble was a ‘Christ-only' exclusive zone. (This represents living a crucified life, laying down our lives contrary to belief in God's Word. Luk 9:23 And he said unto all, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.) NENT Joh 10:5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. When I was looking at this corrupted world through the shimmer, it was a totally insane, dark and chaotic world. People were in complete confusion, fear and anxiety. Rampant with disappointments and arguments continually, and their minds were running around in circles trying to get their own way. Job 10:22 The land dark as midnight, The land of the shadow of death, without any order, And where the light is as midnight. I then remembered the Lord had entrusted the Saints with certain tasks, though new and inexperienced, all were not too worried about failing. (Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God afore prepared that we should walk in them.) All the Saints were all completely comfortable and eager to do them, and naturally completed the tasks with a delight to serve and do this for God. (God gives us the grace to want to serve Him as He works all things after the counsel of His will and for His good pleasure as in Eph 1:11 and Php 2:13. Psa 40:7-8 Then said I, Lo, I am come; In the roll of the book it is written of me: 8 I delight to do thy will, O my God; Yea, thy law is within my heart. Joh 4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to accomplish his work. Jesus accomplished this in the supernatural seeing and speaking things into existence. Rom 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: (This is our spirit man, Christ in you.) I then saw some people who were not part of UBM, come and ask some of the UBM members curious questions about God. They were all edified and joined together. They were brethren for eternity, who had previously received different understandings of the Lord earlier in their Christian lives. But they saw the light of the Lord, and then came fully into Truth. NENT Act 2:47 praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added together daily those being saved. Then everyone was singing and praising God in a bus that was on a completely messed-up broken road. It was so damaged that the bus should have crashed or torn up its tires. I saw an overpass bridge for a river up ahead, which had completely fallen down. The driver being led completely by the Spirit, took another route through the river where there was barely any water; praise the Lord! Isa 43:2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. All of the Saints were on the same word, on the same page; according to the Word. We had complete agreement and exhilaration for Christ. No one was freaking out. (Saints (sanctified ones) are on the same timeline. Mat 18:19 ASV Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father who is in heaven.) NENT Rom 15:5-7 Now the God of patience and of comfort grant you to be of the same mind one with another according to Christ Jesus: 6 that with one accord ye may with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Wherefore receive one another, even as the Christ also received us, to God's glory. Each had their own trials, dealing with issues in their own hearts and trying to get rid of any carnality, and any attachments to things that were not of God. Each person had different percentages of faith. However, anyone could be part of the Kingdom regarding that percentage. Although the intensity of the trial was relative to the percentage in their Faith in Christ. (Rom 12:3 For I say, through the grace that was given me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but so to think as to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to each man a measure of faith. Luk 17:6 And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye would say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou rooted up, and be thou planted in the sea; and it would obey you.) The whole earthly realm was transitioning to the spiritual realm, to have Heaven on Earth as one reality, just like we saw of the New Jerusalem. (This means bringing what we have in the Kingdom of Heaven down to earth, as Jesus taught His disciples to pray. Mat 6:10 ASV Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so on earth.) We were not seen by the worldly, carnal people, though they could see the parts of us that were not Christ-like. If anyone in the bubble was to see the corrupted world, they would have to go out of their way with great effort to see that old world. (We must see what God tells us to see to have His divine power and all provision. 2Pe 1:2-4 ASV Grace to you and peace be multiplied in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; 3 seeing that his divine power hath granted unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that called us by his own glory and virtue; 4 whereby he hath granted unto us his precious and exceeding great promises; that through these ye may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust. I was with Michael and Julie as though we were all grouped together in the physical. We seemed to be some place where none of us recognized. There were physical things like cars, but we were not to worry about how to travel and we were translated like it was a normal thing for vast distances. (I was translated halfway around the world in a blink of an eye to preach in a Church. My car was translated many miles ahead of where I had been. Eze 3:14-15 ASV So the Spirit lifted me up, and took me away; and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; and the hand of Jehovah was strong upon me. 15 Then I came to them of the captivity at Tel-abib…) Those who deliberately made poor and improper decisions were put to the test. (This was to reveal their unconquered flesh to see if they would repent so Jesus can manifest in them.) It looked just like Jesus' day but in our modern world. We were on a supernatural level. There were no limits to faith according to the Word. No limit on what God could do through us. Miracles were becoming common, and each grew more extreme in amazement. Some of the Saints had questions which exposed the inner-self and any darkness such as, ‘Why are you worrying about anything?' That aspect was out of the question. Our UBM brethren didn't worry. We just did according to the Word, immediately acting according to the Lord's commandments. No longer were the physical realm and the flesh holding us back, nor were we at enmity with God. The UBM brethren were submitted to the Holy Spirit having conquered their flesh, so it was no longer a constant battle. It was now so easy to submit to God and do His will. There was nothing hindering those that had this complete faith, everything was simply done in agreement with God. But those who didn't have 100% faith still had to endure trials even if it was only 1% doubt, they would have 1% trials relative to crucify the flesh and submit to Jesus. NENT Joh 14:31 but that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave me commandment, thus I do. Arise, let us go hence. I saw how David and Michael made known the need for a large established area to be purchased. One of the Saints exclaimed, ‘Oh, but that would cost 100 million dollars!' Michael responded so calmly, ‘But it's been paid for.' The people selling the property already knew and felt in the spirit with whom to make the transaction. (Amen!) Everyone in this realm were going through their own personal trials. Those who were not meant to be in the Kingdom were not in this Heavenly bubble. (The faith timeline) Those who were in these trials were able to see the others who are not in the Kingdom, and they were being tested in their hearts. They had to decide whether to desire Christ and withstand the trial or leave to go the way of the worldly. (These trials are designed by God specifically for each individual to overcome the mind of the flesh. Everyone must decide to give up their lives for Christ. Many disciples will turn back to go the way of the world because they loved their carnal life, their sin and the world more than the Jesus. Luk 14:27 Whosoever doth not bear his own cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. Joh 6:66 ASV Upon this many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. In this seven-year tribulation of trials, a person with only one percent faith in Christ, would have to go through the worst trials. They would need to overcome 99 percent of their flesh. Only if they held onto and grew with that one percent of Christ would they succeed. Despite everything they were going through, they had a very faint path to follow. As they continued to abide in the Lord and continually standing on the Word, they would make it. In comparison, the other type who had 99 percent faith, would only have mild trials. Yet, to each individual their trials of difficulty seemed as though their world and life was crashing. (Many times Father makes small sins large as though seen from His eyes.) This is the refinement process. There were ones who had fake faith; their foundation was revealed by their flaws in faith. They were not built up properly receiving the knowledge of true salvation and were brought back down to go through a true refined-gold process. (Faith that Fizzles out at the Finish had a Flaw in it from the First. We want the real and sincere faith that has corresponding works. 1Ti 1:5 But the end of the charge is love out of a pure heart and a good conscience and faith unfeigned:) (Many Christians have been taught to believe that their “faith” is their religion, traditions and the doctrines of men, and so salvation is by works. God ordained the five-fold ministry for the perfecting of the Body of Christ so they can learn and grow up into salvation by the faith of what Christ accomplished for us completely at the cross. Eph 4:11-15 And he gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 for the perfecting of the saints, unto the work of ministering, unto the building up of the body of Christ: 13 till we all attain unto the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a fullgrown man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 that we may be no longer children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, in craftiness, after the wiles of error; 15 but speaking truth in love, may grow up in all things into him, who is the head, even Christ;) All the stacked-up fake things were then removed. Each piece removed struck deep into their heart. They didn't know where to turn to until they went back to Christ, and the real true foundation. (1Co 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Eph 2:20-21 being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the chief corner stone; 21 in whom each several building, fitly framed together, groweth into a holy temple in the Lord.) When all these were removed, the only thing they had left, was God and the Word. NENT 1Co 3:13-15 the work of each shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it is being revealed in fire; and the fire itself shall prove the work of each of what sort it is. 14 If the work of any shall abide which he built thereon, he shall receive reward. 15 If the work of any shall be burned, he shall suffer loss (Of fleshly works and knowledge): but himself shall be saved; yet so as through fire. (Because the old man is burned up leaving only Christ.) I saw how it didn't matter the translation of the Word, until the Saint manifested a complete and true image of Christ – through a true seeking of the Word and the power of the Holy Spirit. It was then on their journey they applied deeper knowledge and wisdom with concordances, word etymologies, numeric pattern and so forth. Each part was as though another shoot of the root went out and dove deeper into the Foundation of Christ. I saw everyone in Christ were friends and not just family. Not just being ‘lovey' and kind, but had excitement and enjoyment in all company. They were as one. (We are commanded in many scriptures to love one another fervently from the heart and that we are one Body in Christ. Col 3:14-15 and above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfectness. 15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to the which also ye were called in one body; and be ye thankful. Eph 4:15 but speaking truth in love, may grow up in all things into him, who is the head, even Christ; 16 from whom all the body fitly framed and knit together through that which every joint supplieth, according to the working in due measure of each several part, maketh the increase of the body unto the building up of itself in love. 1Th 3:12 and the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we also do toward you; 1Pe 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in your obedience to the truth unto unfeigned love of the brethren, love one another from the heart fervently:) I saw a group of us were sitting around and we became hungry. No one had any food, except someone had just one apple. We all prayed over it. And each person took a bite of it and were made full and then passed it to the next. Everyone took a bite, and after everyone had each taken only one bite of the apple, it was made whole and new again. And then apple was put away as though nothing happened to it, not bites and perfectly ripe. We were all spiritually led, and we didn't need to see something in the physical first for it to make sense. But if it is in the Word we felt that it makes sense. (Having the mind of Christ and walking by faith.) I then saw someone who exist outside of the bubble who were attacking paper Mâché versions of myself, Tianna and many other brethren. They looked very lifelike, just like us. (This is the unbelieving cursed timeline and doesn't affect the believers timeline as per Quantum Physics and faith.) I saw this from a distance and I was not concerned about it and I just kept going on. When we joined a group of fellow saints, they thought we had been killed because they heard about this attack. (From an unbeliever who sees this as real.) The news they heard was misleading and suggested that it was the Real saints being attacked and killed. (This is exactly what is happening to the unbelieving timeline but we were told by the Lord to not hear their cries.) This was a test for those who saw the event and those who heard the fake news. Would they believe it and how would they react. When they overcame that aspect in their trial of seeing brethren being harmed, it built up their faith. However, some who saw this happen, started freaking out, ran over to save the paper Mâché look-a-likes, and then got caught up in the attack and were attacked themselves. I saw Michael, Julie, Missy and many other brethren, picking up their phone to answer it before it had rung – foreknowing a call was about to happen. They had a supernatural knowledge and expectation by faith. Everything had perfect precision and timing as faith through the Spirit was exercised. Confidence in the Spirit was complete, and we moved on. I saw us at this large building which had no power or lights. There was a machine that made electricity, but it looked like parts were missing and things broken off and it was covered in rust. David was standing next to it and I heard him firmly state, “I know that this will work;” but not in a boasting way. He just pointed at the machine, then leaned a little forward to touch the ‘on' switch. (Free energy will be provided.) When he did, it turned on and the machine began shaking and all the missing parts fell perfectly into their places and all the rust shook off it like a wet dog when it shakes of water. The machine looked and sounded brand-new. With faith, we expect everything to always work, not by sight and without hesitation. All to glorify our Father in heaven according to Faith. NENT Mat 9:29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it to you. (The front wheel drive gears that were shattered in my tractor were restored by a touch and a command and my action to get on it and drive it off.) We didn't worry about where we would stay or sleep. Next, we were all gathered together in a room, and persecution came. There were reports of attackers coming so I and some of the others left and went to another room with different people whom I have never seen before. We ate what they served us and spoke with them. Then afterward we went back to the other room with these people we had just met, and then some high-ranking army official knocked on door told us all that we had to leave immediately. We went to go out the building and I reached into my pocket and pulled out a car key. I used the key fob, and it unlocked a car that I have never seen before. We were led by faith which way to go with total assurance and not worried at all. (1Jn 4:18 ASV There is no fear in love: but perfect love casteth out fear, because fear hath punishment; and he that feareth is not made perfect in love.) (This paragraph, I have seen this before in a dream in 2019.) All these series of events led to separation by a shimmer of golden light. I felt those who abide in Christ were always kept safe. (Isa 26:3 ASV Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee. Isa 32:18 And my people shall abide in a peaceable habitation, and in safe dwellings, and in quiet resting-places. Psa 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of Jehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in whom I trust. If there was a worry, it was their personal trial to be exercised in order to turn back to God. (Worry or fear, indicates sin. When we sin, we just confess them, and God is faithful to forgive us and cleanse us of them as in 1Jn 1:9. Then we confess Jesus, and we are justified again by faith. So we need repentance and faith in the sacrifice of Christ.) So those who worry or fear are brought back to real belief. Back to what they had already learned, the unshakable foundation in Christ. (Anything not of faith will be exposed. Rom 14:23 ASV … whatsoever is not of faith is sin.) I saw a pair of believers and in front of them with this same shimmer of golden light and they could see the other side. While they were holding hands, one was trembling in their trial of worries, yet the other was saying, “There is nothing to worry about. Everything is fine.” (We should encourage each other and help those who may be weaker in the faith while they go through their trials by speaking the promises to them.) Trembling could cause one to either let go and flee. (Fear makes one shrink back and run from the situation and the demons. Mat 12:30 ASV He that is not with me is against me, and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.) The person would have to go through that trial again and eventually they would be built back up and strengthened in their faith. (We are to embrace each other in fellowship and prayer for all the Saints, even if we have never met them.) We all had training with theory lessons and read about gifted Christians in past, and dived deeper into the Word. But the world I saw was the time of testing in the physical; all the day-to-day stuff. How we react from the heart. All were to be tested and tried in order to being built up and refined. Dan 11:35 And some of them that are wise shall fall, to refine them, and to purify, and to make them white, even to the time of the end; because it is yet for the time appointed. Mal 3:3 and he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi, and refine them as gold and silver; and they shall offer unto Jehovah offerings in righteousness. NENT 1Jn 2:3-4 And hereby we know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 Who saith that I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in this man. Heb 13:6 So that we boldly say, The Lord is my helper; I will not fear What shall man do to me? Jos 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not affrighted, neither be thou dismayed: for Jehovah thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. I saw a married couple carrying their infant child. The infant was completely dependent upon the parents' care. Though the couple were strong in faith and not afraid, they had an overflowing faith and love for the child. This faith and love caused them to raise and care for the child as Christ-led parents; the child's reliance on them kept the infant calm and safe despite all going on around them. (I have seen God's people who loved Him suffering in the unbelief timeline and asked an angel if he could pull them over into the faith timeline on my faith because they were babies and you do everything for babies. He did and they were blessed immediately.) If someone was not wholly in Christ; the trial showed how they reacted in a persecution of their faith. They are tested by their percent of lack in Christ. Everything was between each of them and God, no person was to go through that same percentage of faith for that particular trial. I saw a group of bad people, but not in the same area as us anymore. We were separated and they were cut-off. (The time comes when the unbelieving timeline people will no longer cross over.) It was like the opposite view of the ‘TV' version of a ‘rapture scenario.' The shimmer bubble held in protection all those who abided in Christ and all the others were pulled out. (As in the days of Noah, when the Ark lifted up above the water, they were all safe during the destruction of the wicked for 40 days.) The most wicked and evil were at the furthest edges, completely opposite to us. (Darkness is as far away as possible from the Light - or it is eliminated) NENT Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness apprehended it not. We are separated, more and more; according to the personal level of faith in Christ. All those who are not to be in the Kingdom were ‘pulled' out of the reality we all were living. (“A little leaven leavens the whole lump” “Cast out the old leaven”.) This was the transition. I saw the shimmer bubble or glory of Lord Jesus covering us as a Corporate Body. This was greater than anything the enemy had. NENT Rom 8:38-39 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creation, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Trials of Faith Prepare Us For Battle (4) (audio) David Eells – 11/5/23 Nailing The Old Man To The Cross David Eells I want to share with you something that's probably one of the most hated and denied doctrines and, yet, one of the most important doctrines, if a person wants to bear fruit and walk in the steps of Jesus. I'm referring to the question of How we are to die to self. There is the death-to-self that comes as we repent day-by-day, that comes as we read the Word of God and realize what the Will of God is for us. “Repentance” means “to change our mind.” When we read and are corrected by the Word, the “old man” dies and the “new man” comes to life, because the new man is the Word bearing fruit in our soul. Let's focus on another area concerning this. (Zec.13:7) Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered; and I will turn my hand upon the little ones. Jesus quoted this in Matthew 26, speaking about Himself being the Shepherd, and the scattering of His disciples being at least the beginning of God turning His “hand upon the little ones.” It sounds very much like the Lord is out to kill us all. The Lord Jesus was the first, the Example, the Sacrifice, and without Him nothing else would be possible. He made it possible for us to die. Is God really out to kill us all, to “turn” His “hand upon the little ones,” just as He turned the sword against His Son? You know, the Lord took credit for that. We will read some verses that absolutely confirm what I'm saying here. The Lord took credit for crucifying Jesus Christ. He used wicked men to do it. But now, He says, He is turning His Hand upon the little ones, too. So, what is it about us that has to go to death, that has to be crucified? (Gal.5:17) For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are contrary the one to the other; that ye may not do the things that ye would. There's a war going on because the flesh and the spirit are enemies. The flesh, representing the old man, must die. (1Co.15:50) Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. So, yes, the Lord's Hand is against the old man, to put him to death. It doesn't necessarily mean the death of the body. It means the death of the flesh which, of course, includes the mind of the flesh and speaks of the fallen part of the soul of man. We're told that the flesh is contrary to God's way and His Will. (Rom.8:7) Because the mind of the flesh is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of god, neither indeed can it be: (8) and they that are in the flesh cannot please God. The mind of the lower nature, the mind of the fallen man, the mind of the old man, is the enemy of God. What we have to do is cooperate with God in this process of the crucifixion of the old man. Our Lord Jesus gave us a perfect example of that: (Joh.10:17) Therefore doth the Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again. Does the Father love all of those who are willing to lay down their life? Of course He does. Jesus said the Father loves those who obey the Son: (Joh.14:21) He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself unto him. ... (23) Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my word: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. Of course, obeying the Son is obeying the Word and obeying the Son is laying down your life to take up His life. The Father loved Jesus because He laid down His life so that He might “take it again.” (Joh.10:18) No one taketh it away from me…. Jesus is our example. He wants us to be willing to take up His life. No one else can take the life of the self, the old man, from us, either. People can kill you, but they can't take that self-life from you. We have to give that up. (Joh. 10:18) No one taketh it away from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power (literally, the word here is exousia, meaning “authority”) to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. “I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it again.” We have authority! When we were baptized, we reckoned ourselves to be dead unto sin, but alive unto God (Rom.6:11). We reckoned that the old man was dead, that we were crucified with Christ and we don't live anymore. It's now Christ Who lives in us. We received authority to lay down that old life and we can say no to self; we can say no to the devil. We received authority and, likewise, anybody who loses their life will gain their life. If we lay it down, we have authority to take it up. You know, Enoch was translated by faith. He was intricately involved in the resurrection life that came in him because he had already walked in death. He had been well-pleasing to God, having already walked against the self-life, against the stream of humanity. Because of that God loved him. Enoch laid his life down to take it up again. Jesus, as our Example, cooperated with this process. He said, “I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. … This commandment received I from my Father.” Of course, we have received the same commandment and we do have power because of what Jesus did at the cross. We have power, which is the correct word here – dunamis. Authority is the right to use power. We use God's power to lay down the old life and to take up the new. Whether we will or not is a decision we have to make, individually. Not everyone will be a disciple of Jesus Christ, For many are called, but few chosen (Mat.22:14). So, although we have this command of the Lord to lay down our life, He said that it's quite conditional upon us. Some people think we accepted Jesus and it's all over; well, it is, by faith. We see the end from the beginning but we have to cooperate with God in this process of laying down our self-life. It's all about denying self. (Mat.16:24) Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. “Follow me” indicates that this person is a disciple, which means a learner and a follower. Denying self and taking up the cross are synonymous. We are not permitting self to live through this body. We deny self, take up our cross and follow Him. Of course, that is to the death. (Mat.16:25) For whosoever would save his life shall lose it. Many seek to save the life of self. They seek to justify self and, when they do, they are giving up the opportunity to have the life of Christ and bear fruit. (25) For whosoever would save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it. The word used here for “life” is psuchē, and it's talking about your soul life, or self. We lay down the old self in order to take up the new. We lay down our old soul, our own mind, will and emotions, in order to take up Jesus' mind, Will, and emotions. This is our cross. We have opportunity to advance in this every day, if we'll lay down our life to have the life of Christ. This is a condition and it should make many people tremble because this is a condition that's given to all Christians. Those who don't bear fruit in this area will not have eternal life. It doesn't matter what they have by faith; it matters what they manifest before they leave this life. Those who walk by faith will receive power from God to walk the crucified life and they will love, they will embrace the cross! They will embrace death-to-self. (26) For what shall a man be profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and forfeit his life? Again, the word psuchē is translated here as “life,” but there's still another way it's translated: (Luk.9:24) For whosoever would save his life (psuchē) shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life (psuchē) for my sake, the same shall save it. (25) For what is a man profited, if he gain the whole world, and lose or forfeit his own self (psuchē)? That's the same word, psuchē, translated as “life,” “soul” and “own self.” It is a person's mind, will and emotions. We will have His life if we're willing to give up our mind, our will and our emotions for His. The renewed mind of Christ comes from submitting to the Word of God. Besides just knowing the Word and submitting to it, there are some very important things we can do to cooperate with God in bringing this to pass: (1Pe.2:19) For this is acceptable, it for conscience toward God a man endureth griefs, suffering wrongfully. Obviously, we suffer wrongfully at the hands of the world, at the hands of the wicked and at the hands of the curse. We suffer wrongfully and, if we do it because of “conscience toward God,” this is okay. (20) For what glory is it, if, when ye sin, and are buffeted [for it,] ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer [for it,] ye shall take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. The word “acceptable” here is actually the word “grace” and may be read, “this is grace with God.” When we do what we're called to do, what the Scripture commands us to do, and we suffer for it, this is grace with God. The Lord says, My grace is sufficient for thee (2Co.12:9)…. So, we're called to a cross and we're going to suffer if we do what's right. (2Ti.3:12) Yea, and all that would live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. The world is going to come against us if we bear our cross. If we're willing to accept exactly what the Word of God says and if we're willing to submit, in circumstances, to God's commands, we're going to suffer death to self. And it's good because it's the only way to bear fruit. (1Pe.2:21) For hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that ye should follow his steps: (22) who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: (23) who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, threatened not; but committed [himself] to him that judgeth righteously. When Jesus was reviled or threatened, He turned the other cheek; He resisted not the evil (Matthew 5:39). He knew that this was God's method to bring Him to His cross and the next two verses speak of exactly that: (24) Who his own self bare our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died unto sins, might live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed. So, by not defending self, we come to our cross, just as when Jesus refused to defend Himself, He came to the cross. There is a well-known chapter in Isaiah concerning the cross and what Jesus bore there: (Isa.53:7) He was oppressed, yet when he was afflicted he opened not his mouth; as a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep that before its shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth. We know this is true when He was before Pilate and when He was before Herod. He didn't defend Himself. He knew that this was the Father's Will for Him to go to the cross, so He denied Himself and went to the cross. He could have said quite a few things that probably would have served to defend Him, but He didn't. When we defend self, we're proving that we want to save this life, rather than lose this life. (Mat.16:25) For whosoever would save his life shall lose it…. Many people, during the coming Tribulation, for instance, will seek to save their life, but they're going to lose it anyway because, in the great and terrible Day of the Lord, those who have proven themselves to be the Harlot are going to be destroyed by the Beast. They could have accepted their cross during the Tribulation. They could have accepted their deliverance from this world by the crucifixion of self, but since they cast it down, they will lose everything during the great and terrible Day of the Lord. We don't have any choice about losing our life – it's lose it now and have heaven or lose it later and have hell. The point is, if we lose it now, we don't have to endure the Day of the Lord. Jesus was our example here because “he opened not his mouth” and did not defend self. He went to the cross. Today, many people defend themselves when you try to bring the Word to them. When you show them that they're doing something wrong, they take no correction; instead, they defend themselves, refusing to go to the cross. Well, Jesus was the Way and gave us the method. God had many people around Jesus who were willing to help Him go to the cross and so do we. We have many people around us whose only purpose in life is to help us to go to this cross. This is God's process to create His sons. We're still in this creation mode. (Act.2:22) Ye men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God unto you by mighty works and wonders and signs which God did by him in the midst of you, even as ye yourselves know; (23) him, being delivered up by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God…. Jesus was delivered up to His cross “by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God.” Are we? Absolutely. He said He would turn His “hand upon the little ones” (Zec.13:7). However, we still have to cooperate with God. He gave us a decision to make: either lose our life to gain our life or save our life and lose our life. So we have to cooperate. No man takes our life; we have to lay it down. Of course, they can take your physical life but they can't do anything to take that self-life. We have to lay that down. (Act.2:23) Him, being delivered up by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye by the hand of lawless men did crucify and slay. He is speaking to “Ye men of Israel,” who today are what we loosely call the “Church.” The Harlot church will use the Beast to bring about the crucifixion of God's true disciples. I'm not talking about physical crucifixion. What happened to Jesus in His crucifixion was a sign representing the crucifixion of self. We are here to lose our life, our psuchē, our fallen, soulish life. Not every Christian will physically die, but every Christian will lose their life or they won't be Christian. So God used the hand of Israel here and used these lawless men to crucify Jesus Christ, to bring Him to His cross and to life again. There is no eternal life without the cross. No cross, no crown. People are deceived by the devil into thinking that they can justify themselves, that they can defend themselves in the presence of the Word of God, instead of embracing the truth there and letting it put to death their old life. We call baptism a sign and it surely is a sign of the water of the Word putting to death the old life. We accept it at the very beginning of our Christian walk but as we continue our walk in the Lord, as we read the Word of God, putting it into our hearts, repenting, the Word now replaces the old man, the old life (which is the mind, the will and the emotions of the old man). We're embracing the cross if we repent, if we do not justify ourselves and our sin. Notice that God has helpers. He has the Harlot and the Beast to help bring us to our cross. (Act.4:27) For of a truth in this city against thy holy Servant Jesus, whom thou didst anoint, both Herod and Pontius Pilate (that's the head of the Harlot of apostate Judaism and the local head of the Beast), with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel…. That's the whole world. The Lord says, we're going to be“hated of all the nations for my name's sake” (Mat.24:9). This is because all nations are cooperating to help us to take up our cross, deny self and follow Jesus into everlasting peace and life. Notice the purpose that the heads of the harlot, the heads of the Beast, the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, “were gathered together”: (Act.4:28) To do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel foreordained to come to pass. Then, it was to crucify Jesus; now, it's to crucify the body of Christ. Again, we don't all have to die a horrible death on the physical cross but, as we've noticed, the Scriptures are teaching a spiritual cross, a death-to-self; is what we're here for. Jesus' commands that we do this but we have to make that decision. Jesus was very explicit about the most important method of cooperating with the wicked world around us: (Mat.5:38) Ye have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: (39) but I say unto you, Resist not him that is evil: but whosoever smiteth thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. Isn't that the example He gave to us? He didn't defend Himself. He was as a lamb led to slaughter and, in type and shadow, that's exactly the way we need to be. Do not defend self; self is the enemy. You should be standing on the Lord's side. The people around you are all gathered around you for a purpose. I'm talking about the wicked, whether it be the wicked in the so-called “church” or the wicked outside the “church”; it makes no difference. They have a predestined work of God to do on us and it is crucifixion. We need to cooperate with the vessels of dishonor used of God to bring us to our cross, because no one is in your life by accident. The Bible says, “A man can receive nothing, except it have been given him from heaven” (Joh.3:27) and God “worketh all things after the counsel of his will” (Eph.1:11). Just know that no one is in your life, as obnoxious as many of them are, without God having sent them and put them there for this purpose. Jesus demands here that we “Resist not him that is evil.” We know that this is not talking about the principalities and powers because the Bible says to “resist the devil” (Jas.4:7). We also know that we wrestle “not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world-rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual [hosts] of wickedness in the heavenly [places]” (Eph.6:12). So what He's saying here is, “Resist not man who is evil to you,” especially in any physical way. We have some brilliant theologians who came up with the idea that Jesus was preaching this to people who were to obey it in the Millennium. They should be ashamed of themselves. First, if Jesus was going to give the Sermon on the Mount as rules for the Millennium, He could have waited another couple thousand years before giving it, when He came back. Second, the people in the Millennium are going to have a new body. Why do they have to worry about not resisting the wicked? The wicked can't touch them; they're in a born again body. He's speaking this to His disciples because He was demanding that they resist not the wicked around them, just as He resisted not, so that they would go to their cross, too. We're in the Hands of the Lord, a sovereign God; nothing can happen to you. You may ask, “What will happen to me if I do this?” Well, you will die to self, but you'll be in the Hands of the Lord. It's His decision to make and it's His demand. He commanded, “Resist not him that is evil: but whosoever smiteth thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also” (Mat.5:39). So we can justify self, we can make up some fairy tale like, “This is for the Millennium” and we don't have to go to our cross. But, ultimately, we're going to die if we don't go to our cross. What we need to do is embrace this and learn to turn the other cheek. Do you know what happens when you resist not the evil around you? People are going to come against you with this and come against you with that, but when you resist them not (I'm talking about personal forgiveness now, not about governmental forgiveness for the Church), your flesh rises up. The very one that you want to deny, the one you want to put to death, that's the one that rises up within you and wants to retaliate, to be angry, to be unforgiving. That one is the one that's contrary to God, the one who is the enemy of God. The easy way to put him to death is to just refuse him. God has harder ways to deal with that old man. As I noted, this is not a governmental issue. We're told very plainly, “whose soever sins ye forgive, they are forgiven unto them; whose soever [sins] ye retain, they are retained” (Joh.20:23). Jesus gave them governmental authority. For instance, the example of Paul turning a man over to “Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus” (1Co.5:5) was governmental authority. It wasn't because Paul didn't forgive the man. He forgave him personally, as Jesus told the disciples to do in John 20, but he didn't forgive him for the Church because a little leaven leaventh the whole lump (1Co.5:6). We are to “Put away the wicked man from among yourselves” (13). There are people in the Church we're commanded to throw out to defend the Church, not self. For instance, We're to have no company or even eat with the ones who cause division or are outwardly immoral, (1 Corinthians 5:11). There has to be some governmental unforgiveness, if you will, for the Kingdom. When a person has been chastened or turned over to the devil, as Paul did to Hymenaeus and Alexander, it's because they haven't been forgiven for the Kingdom, not because they haven't been forgiven for themselves. At the personal level we have to go to our cross, we always have to forgive. Here's an example of what it is to “Resist not him that is evil”: (Mat.6:14) For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. (15) But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Remember that Jesus, on the cross, didn't retaliate. He said, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do” (Luk.23:34). Anger is retaliation and resisting the evil. Anger is siding with evil against evil, literally trying to overcome evil with evil, but we're told to overcome evil with good. Jesus did defend the people from the wickedness of their apostate leaders. Unforgiveness opens the door to bitterness, wrath and all kinds of evil things. (Mat.5:43) Ye have heard that it was said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy: (44) but I say unto you, Love your enemies, and pray for them that persecute you; (45) that ye may be sons of your Father who is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust. These are two things that speak to what resisting not him that is evil is talking about. We have to love our enemies and we have to forgive those around us, both of which our flesh resists strongly. That's why people around us do the things that they do, in order for this old man to rise up in us. Then we're able to face what may have been hidden to us and make the decision whether to lay this down or justify self. Do I take my cross or do I align myself with evil, with the old man? So, Jesus tells us to love our enemies, which is truly resisting not him that is evil. If you love someone, and if you forgive them, you are not going to retaliate against them. Can a person love their enemy and shoot them? No. Can a person forgive someone who does them wrong and then shoot them? No. Nor, if you forgive them, can you retaliate in any lesser way. You just have to take it and resist not the evil. This pacifist doctrine that Jesus had is railed against in most churches today and they give all kinds of reasons why this can't be what Jesus meant, though He said it over and over and demonstrated it over and over. If you don't want to go to your cross, if you don't want to have more of Christ, just listen to these people because they are refusing to go there. No matter how religious they are, they're refusing the fruit of Jesus Christ. They're refusing to take up their cross so that the old man dies. All you have to do is deny him and he'll die. All you have to do is not feed him and he dies. When you indulge in anger, retaliation, hitting back, all the things that normally come to mind when you're attacked, then you're feeding the old man and he will live. He'll be there the next time to try you again because he won't die at all. You see, he's nailed on the cross and it's up to you to not let him come down off that cross. He wants to come down; he wants to live. He doesn't want this Word and he loves to pervert this Word so that he can live because this Word means death. Just as when the children of Israel told Moses, “Speak thou with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die” (Exo.20:19). The Word of God would bring death to them and they knew it. It brings death to the old man today. So, if you humble yourself to what God says right here, to “Resist not him that is evil,” it's going to put you in a position to die. If you love your enemy, if you forgive those who trespass against you, you are going to be put in a position to die and the more you do this, the easier it will come because the old man is passing away. You're putting him to death at the edge of the sword, the Word of God. He's passing away because you're submitting. You're not resisting the very people whom God sent to bring you to your cross. Now suppose Jesus would have retaliated and drawn His sword and not gone to the cross! He had to submit of His own free will and we do, too. We can say, “No!” God is not going to reward those Christians who only love those who are nice to them. (Mat.5:46) For if ye love them that love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? (47) And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than others?] do not even the Gentiles the same? (48) Ye therefore shall be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. And how is that? By loving your enemies and resisting not him that is evil. This what God has called us to. We can do this daily and actually come into more and more fruit of Jesus Christ. (2Co.4:16) Wherefore we faint not; but though our outward man is decaying, yet our inward man is renewed day by day. The outward man is your fleshly man and the part of your soul that is unregenerate. Your inward man is your spirit and the part of your soul that is born of God. If the outward man isn't decaying, the inward man is not being renewed because they occupy the same territory. That old man has to die for the new man to take his place. This happens when we cooperate with these people around us whom God has sent into our life, many of whom are obnoxious, and they're warring against us. But, the Lord has sent them to take us to our cross. You'd might as well go peaceably because if you don't go to your cross, you're going to lose your life. Going to the cross is easier than the alternative. Here's something our flesh doesn't want to do: (Rom.12:14) Bless them that persecute you; bless, and curse not. Paul in 1Co 5 turned a man over to satan for chastening so he would be saved. This is obviously not a curse! Without correction we die. Our flesh doesn't want to pray for those who do evil to us, but it's a command from God and if we do it, we die a little every time. The old man that wants to live, that wants to retaliate, that wants to be angry and wants to be justified in doing it, won't live if we don't let him live. That's what fasting is all about, by the way. If we don't feed the old man, he becomes weaker and weaker. It's a parable. Not that fasting is not very good for us – of course it is, but if we don't feed him, he becomes weaker and weaker. If we do feed him, he becomes stronger and stronger. Now when we fast, we do it for the purpose of weakening the old man so that the new man is strong and it's true, too, in the natural. When we feed the old man by giving him what he wants, he becomes strong in our life. (15) Rejoice with them that rejoice; weep with them that weep. (16) Be of the same mind one toward another. Set not your mind on high things, but condescend to things that are lowly. Be not wise in your own conceits. (17) Render to no man evil for evil. Take thought for things honorable in the sight of all men. In the natural, how do we “render to no man evil for evil”? How do we practically bring that to pass? Well, people are accosting us all the time with words, with deeds and so on, and when that old man rises up, don't let him live. He wants to react, even in self-righteous indignation, but for your own self and your own life, you have to not feed him. “Render to no man evil for evil” is all-encompassing. (Rom.12:18) If it be possible, as much as in you lieth, be at peace with all men. (19) Avenge not yourselves, beloved, but give place unto the wrath [of God]…. Do not avenge yourselves, do not retaliate, do not get angry, do not get back at anyone. “Of God” was added in there after “wrath,” but it's just basically telling us, “give place unto the wrath.” Let it come. God's in control of it and He won't allow you to be tempted beyond what you're able. If you give in to it, whatever comes will be from God and you can trust Him. He's in control of the cross; men are not. He will retaliate if we don't. (19) … For it is written, Vengeance belongeth unto me; I will recompense, saith the Lord. Truly, if you don't retaliate and if you don't hit back, God will; but the person will learn a lesson, if God does it. If you do it, they'll only become angrier at you and they won't learn any lesson from it. When I trained my two eldest sons, I would tell them, “Now if you get mad at him, don't you hit him. You come tell me and I'll take care of it.” If they disobeyed me, if one of them did something to the other one, and the other one retaliated and hit him back, when they complained to me, I would have to say, “Wait a minute. Didn't I tell you to come and tell me and not to hit him back? Now I've got to spank you because you disobeyed me. You already hit him back so he already got his punishment because you hit him back.” Is that what God does with us? Of course He does. If you retaliate, you hit back, you return evil for evil. They got their “just deserts,” but now you've got to be punished because you disobeyed. God's people are retaliating and disobeying Him, so He has to spank them. The easiest way is going to the cross; the hard way is to rebel against it. (Pro.13:15) … But the way of the transgressor is hard. So when my children would hit back, I would have to spank the one who hit back because I told both of them not to do that. Well, notice what it says here: (Rom.12:19) … Vengeance belongeth unto me; I will recompense, saith the Lord. (20) But if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him to drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head. This “coals of fire” is not an easy thing here. It's God's retaliation, God's chastening, upon them. At least then they'll learn something. (21) Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. That's what the Lord is calling us to do. The first place we need to overcome evil with good is in our own life. If we're going to retaliate, we're not learning the lesson. We're letting the old man live; he's doing what he wants and he doesn't die at all. Here is something very similar: (Mat.5:39) but I say unto you, Resist not him that is evil: but whosoever smiteth thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. (40) And if any man would go to law with thee, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. Wow! That really comes against the flesh. If a person is going to sue you and take away something, give them something extra, as well – more than what they asked for. The most important thing is coming against the flesh. It's not who wins down here on earth. In 1Co.15:31, Paul said, “I die daily”. He daily came against that flesh. We have to learn to do this and God is going to help us in the days to come. We're coming to a time of great trial and tribulation and God is going to assist us with this. He also has this army of people who are willing to help us. (Mat.5:41) And whosoever shall compel thee to go one mile, go with him two. We find almost the same thing repeated here. (1Co.6:5) I say [this] to move you to shame. What, cannot there be [found] among you one wise man who shall be able to decide between his brethren, (6) but brother goeth to law with brother, and that before unbelievers? (7) Nay, already it is altogether a defect in you, that ye have lawsuits one with another. Why not rather take wrong? why not rather be defrauded? So he's saying it's better for you to turn the other cheek, to take the wrong, to be defrauded. Of course, you can't do anything if they drag you to court, but if you attempt to use the worldly law against your brother, Paul calls that defrauding because you're hitting back. Now God has to hit you. (8) Nay, but ye yourselves do wrong, and defraud, and that [your] brethren. (9) Or know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? In other words, if you don't take your cross, then you're not inheriting the Kingdom of God. Also if you hit back you are not forgiving and according to Jesus you are not forgiven your sins which puts you under the curse. That puts you under the wrath of God. You see, the cross is the easy way. The cross is something we have to embrace to bear the fruit of Jesus Christ. He said, Whosoever doth not bear his own cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple (Luk.14:27). That's pretty dangerous. If you don't lose your life in this world, you cannot be a disciple of Jesus Christ. If you don't lose your life, you will not gain your life. That's conditional. Some people have many unconditional-eternal-security-type thoughts and teachings and they want to do away with things like this because this is crucifying. They don't even think it possible to live this life of the Sermon on the Mount. They try to put it off to the Millennium. The truth is, that's a dangerous thing for them to do. They are selling their own soul to the devil. Here's another admonition: (Mat.10:16) Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. You remember that Jesus was a lamb led to slaughter and God's hand would be turned against the little ones. Now, He sends His disciples forth as sheep in the midst of wolves. Jesus said, As thou didst send me into the world, even so sent I them into the world (Joh.17:18). As Jesus was sent as a Lamb led to slaughter, Who opened not His mouth, Who resisted not the evil, now we're sent in the same way, to be sheep in the midst of wolves. And, as sheep, we are to be “harmless as doves.” The whole world teaches contrary to this and most of you out there who are patriotic have a spirit that is totally contrary to the Word of God. Our allegiance is to our Kingdom. Our allegiance is not to the kingdoms of the world. Our Lord told us to be harmless as doves, to turn the other cheek, to resist not him that is evil, to love our enemies and to forgive. If we don't, we're not bearing our cross, we're not losing our life, we're not gaining our life. We have to lose one to gain the other because they occupy the same territory. (Mat.10:17) But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to councils, and in their synagogues they will scourge you (of course, if they're told to resist not the evil, they're going to be mistreated in this way); (18) yea and before governors and kings shall ye be brought for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. Your old man says, “No, we want to escape that, Lord.” But the Lord says, “ye shall be hated of all the nations for my name's sake” (Mat.24:9), meaning that God's Name (Greek: onoma – meaning His nature, character and authority) will be manifested in us. We are hated by these people so that the life of Christ is manifested in His people. We don't have permission to hit back but we can flee. (Mat.10:23) But when they persecute you in this city, flee into the next: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone through the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come. So we see that God's people have permission of the Lord to flee, but we have no permission to fight, to wrestle with flesh and blood. We do have permission to deal with principalities and powers that use flesh and blood. We have more power by exercising our authority over the principalities and powers than we do by wrestling with flesh and blood. That's why we're forbidden to do this, because the Lord has ordained these people to help us to our cross. He tells us we're to be sheep in the midst of wolves and harmless as doves. He is really putting us in a situation whereby we are weak, but God's “power is made perfect in weakness” (2Co.12:9). God saves us many times when we resist not the evil because we give up our own power and deny ourselves. Show Kindness And Feed Your Enemies Anonymous 5/28/23 (David's notes in red) My wife said she ordered two couches which we needed to pick up at a nearby Red Cross store. (We rest on the promises of the blood stained cross.) We drove the short distance to the store. When we arrived, I parked our vehicle and my wife said that she would grab the couches and she wouldn't be long. While waiting, another car parked next to me. Two women got out and one of them seemed to be the store manager and I somehow recognized her. I smiled and waved at her. She stopped and turned to the other woman, wondering ‘who I was, and why did I smile and wave at her?' The other lady motioned to her and said, “That's the guy from the other week.” She then acted as if she just remembered and walked over. She said, “Why are you smiling and waving?” I said, “Why not?” She then said, “You and your wife are so kind and generous.” I said, “It's all Jesus.” (God's children have the fruit of Christ and He puts it in our hearts how to treat others with love and kindness.) (Pro 10:7 The memory of the righteous is blessed;… Psa 112:5-6 Well is it with the man that dealeth graciously and lendeth; … 6 For he shall never be moved; The righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance.) Just then my wife came out with the couches and somehow just placed them on top of the car. We then drove off to go get some food. At the restaurant, two men in black (black clothing mean works of darkness.) rushed over and grabbed me and put me in their black SUV. (Vehicles represent a person's life and ways, the black SUV travels in darkness, it represents a large body of the Beast.) They were very angry with me and asked strange questions about my job here and why I'm here and what I am up to. (The Beast is of the world (Babylon, which is confusion) and uses fear and intimidation with people to make them comply to their demands.) I said, “I just follow Jesus” and cheerfully answered and helped them. They were insistent and made it clear to me that they would harm me and eventually kill me somewhere, and no one would know or would hear me scream. I wasn't worried and kept telling them about my life with Jesus. It was like chalk/nails on a blackboard to them: Each testimony and amazing love Jesus has for me and my family and all the people I met was making them manifest such hatred and anger. (Those with anti-christ spirits hate Jesus in us and all righteousness. The 14 satanists who God killed hated us with a passion but they could do nothing to us when we held to the Word. Psa 56:4-5 In God (I will praise his word), In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can flesh do unto me? 5 All the day long they wrest my words: All their thoughts are against me for evil. Psa 109:30 I will give great thanks unto Jehovah with my mouth; Yea, I will praise him among the multitude.) We then arrived in a very dark, isolated place. They got out, and to their surprise I got out with them. One of them said to the other, “I wish I had eaten something before we did this.” I then said, “Here, you can have this.” I had no idea how, but I had a French salad baguette. He said, “Woah, thanks so much!” and he was so happy. (Rom 12:19-21 Avenge not yourselves, beloved, but give place unto the wrath of God: for it is written, Vengeance belongeth unto me; I will recompense, saith the Lord. 20 But if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him to drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head. 21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.) While the one guy was eating the other reached for a cigarette but couldn't find his lighter. I reached into my pocket and somehow had one and gave it to him. He was surprised and said, “How did you do that?” I said, “If I need anything, my Father will just give it to me. Here, I know you need it.” He lit up the cigarette and acted angry and muttered something and walked around by himself while the other guy was still enjoying the food. And he then shouted excitedly, “Isn't he so kind to give me this food? Do you want some? It's really good!” The other guy was starting to be less angry and said, “No thanks.” (Pro 15:1 A soft answer turneth away wrath; But a grievous word stirreth up anger.) The two of them were talking to each other, but I couldn't hear them. He then walked to me and said, “Look, we were told (just following the Beast's orders) to get you and then just kill you, but there's no way I can do that now.” He pointed at the other guy who had just finished eating. Then he went on to tell me that he wasn't sure about this whole scenario, and that the other guy just said they needed to let me go. So, he was now just going to drive off. The other guy spoke then saying, “Why not just drop him off where we got him?” Then I was taken back to where I was. I woke up. (When we obey the commandments of God, He works on our behalf. Also if we do not fear the enemy for fear hath torment. He can change a person's heart and any situation we may find ourselves in and He controls all vessels of honor and dishonor. We do not defend ourselves against the worldly Beast and God will deliver us. Also if we believe that they cannot harm us because we were redeemed from the hand of the enemy. Pro 16:1 The plans of the heart belong to man; But the answer of the tongue is from Jehovah. Pro 10:2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing; But righteousness delivereth from death. Pro 11:6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them. Pro 16:7 When a man's ways please Jehovah, He maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. Pro 21:1 The king's heart is in the hand of Jehovah as the watercourses: He turneth it whithersoever he will.) Castle Advancement Anonymous 2/23/23 (David's notes in red) I had a dream where I was living in a sand-colored castle with other believers. (Sand is earthy but also represents the seed of Abraham so this castle represents our old life.) We had done everything we wanted to in this castle (This represents self-will and the mind of the flesh which does what it wants with this earthly body.) and we wanted to advance to another castle in a different location. (This advancement into another castle is like Esther advancing to go into the King's house.) So, at night we snuck out of the castle and we left through the back gate to start journeying across deserts and plains to get to the other castle. (Leaving at night represents going out into the wilderness without having much Light or understanding of the Word to lead us.) There were so many stars in the sky and the moon was bright and you could see planes flying above. We had to pass through a specific area in the desert with these hills and rocks and all these people would come out from behind the rocks when we got close. We didn't know what these people were going to do or if they were good or bad. So some of us fled, others tried to hide, and some stood still when we would get attacked by these people and then we were teleported back to the previous castle. We failed a test so we had to go through the same process of leaving the castle, going through the desert and coming back to the area with the rocks and hillls where these people were. There was no way to avoid them, we always had to pass this area. (There is no way to avoid dealing with other people and the trials we face in our wilderness. We must remember our renewed mind.) After a few times of us going through this process of getting to the hills and rocks area and us being returned back at the castle, I cried out to God asking why we couldn't get past this area, because we knew God wanted us to get past it. He spoke to me clearly and said this area in the desert is to crucify our flesh, and the enemy will only be allowed to attack us when we do something out of the will of God. We need to listen carefully every moment to hear what God wants us to do, how to respond and how to move and then the enemy couldn't touch us. I felt God say that He wants brides, to be married to for eternity but He wants a specific bride who is in complete agreement, communion and unity with Him. (Col 1:9 …that ye may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding,) I saw that God is sovereign over these enemies and He controls them but he uses them to show us how He wants us to be and how he doesn't want us to be. I saw the Lord in all the enemy, I saw Him in the sky and stars and planets, and in the ground and trees in the desert. I could see Him in the brethren and all the other people in the desert. I shared this with the other brethren. (There are no accidents in a believers life, “A man can receive nothing except it come from heaven.” Everything is a test. Col 1:16-17 for in him [Christ] were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and unto him; 17 and he is before all things, and in him all things consist.) So now knowing this, we went out of the castle and went across the desert and came to the area with the rocks and hills. This time I asked God in my mind what to do. He said for me to stand still and love them and to be joyful and kind and treat them as Jesus. One of the people came over to me and he looked just like my husband. I felt that each person individually looked differently to the others, too, as it was between them and God. That God would appear to each person uniquely how He wanted to. (Everyone is a test.) I did what God said for me to do and then the person who looked like my husband was very kind and loving back to me and he became very protective of me. I asked the Lord what He wanted me to say before I said it and the man always responded back very well, filled with fruit of Jesus. When I spoke and did what God wanted me to do everything would go perfectly with this person and Jesus would manifest through this man in spirit and in soul. If I stepped out of what God wanted, the person would react differently and then I knew when I wasn't doing the will of God. I felt I was being corrected with every move I made and every word or thought. Which I was grateful for because I was happy to and wanted to know how God wanted me to be and what God wanted me to do. During the process I learned much about how God wanted me to react and move and it became natural and flowing that I could hear the Lord clearly and see Him clearly. (Pro 12:1 Whoso loveth correction loveth knowledge;… Pro 15:32 He that refuseth correction despiseth his own soul; But he that hearkeneth to reproof getteth understanding.) I really wanted to please God and in seeking God each moment I could feel God was pleased. As I listened and responded as God wanted, I felt His presence through me, but His presence also manifested through this man that looked like my husband. It was Jesus in me and Jesus in him and when I obeyed God and sought Him everything went perfectly but when I didn't that's when things would go bad. (Mar 3:35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.) I looked over and saw a few other brethren struggling and worrying and many of them ended up getting attacked and taken back to the castle. Some because they were afraid, others because they were not treating the people as if they were Jesus or because they were doing what they thought to do, and not what God told them to do. I then felt the Lord say not to worry about them right now and I could talk with them later but right now I'm to focus on this training and what He has before me. (We each need to stay focused in our own individual trials and overcome the mind of the flesh and sins. Php 2:12…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling) I felt if I left to go over and help the brethren at that moment, that I would upset this man. I was supposed to be fully focused on him and on leaving the castle. If I didn't, I would then be teleported back to the castle. Gal 6:5 For each man shall bear his own burden. (We can better help others when we have overcome in our own trials and experiences.) The process of interacting with this man kind of felt like courting; it was as if Jesus in me was courting Jesus in this man. When I was allowing Jesus to manifest through me, I could be corrected. If it went too far off track, I would be taken back to the castle to start again. The courting was like Jesus was in this man, but I had to seek the Lord to see how He wanted me to respond, what to say and what He wanted me to do that would please Him. It felt as if I was courting Jesus through this man and that I was being corrected and perfected to be how Jesus wanted. (Heb 13:21 [Jesus] make you perfect in every good thing to do his will, working in us that which is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ;) I then went to a certain area or did something that I thought was right, but I erred, and I was taken back to the castle to start again. (I thought we need to do as the Word says, Pro 3:5-6 Trust in Jehovah with all thy heart, And lean not upon thine own understanding: 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he will direct thy paths.) When all the brethren were back together, we all testified to each other what God told us to do and how to react and they all shared what worked for them and what didn't work. (Our testimonies help each other to understand in our own trials.) One of them shared they really struggled with fear of the people and the unknown of what they could do and repented for not trusting God. I shared that I felt God is in control of every step. We went out again and arrived at this same area with the rocks and hills. This time God said for me to enter into one of the buildings and I did. The inside was like a grocery store and I felt hungry. I heard God say to walk over to the deli area and I did, where I saw so many meats everywhere. I wanted a piece of pepperoni, so I went to grab it but then God told me, “No, pick up some roast beef.” I wanted the pepperoni, but in obedience, I picked up the beef because God said to. Then I turned around and the man that looked like my husband was there and he said he had been waiting for me. He had pepperoni in his hand and gave it to me and I gave him the roast beef I had in my hand, and he told me he felt like eating the beef. Then he and I walked around as if on a date, but I would wait to hear what God wanted me to say, when and how to move etc., every moment. I saw the Lord in this man like my husband and in all the others. (2Co 5:16 Wherefore we henceforth know no man after the flesh...) I could see Him in control of them and I saw how when I did something that wasn't in God's will for me to do, the people would react negatively. I felt so close to God in this dream as I was going through all of this. I felt as if I was dating Jesus, and I felt the crucifying of my flesh and coming out of agreement with the things that were not God's will. But when I spoke and acted how God wanted me to, everything would go so perfectly and I felt that God was pleased. (When we hear and obey the Lord, this is walking in agreement with God and doing the will of God. Luk 8:21 But he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these that hear the word of God, and do it.) It was honestly a really wonderful feeling and I really loved in this dream, feeling this close to Jesus and wanting to please Him, being able to hear every moment how He wanted me to be, and what He wanted me to do and speak. This went on for a while as I was learning to hear God and do as He said each moment. When I failed I would be corrected but I learned to not do that again, but to hear God more clearly. It was so awesome to feel so close to Jesus and hear His voice so clearly. I felt that once we passed this area we had accomplished hearing God's voice every second, being obedient to Him every moment and pleasing Him that we will move through the desert with our husband, Jesus. Which to me, he looked just like my husband, but to others He looked different and personalized to each of them. After passing this area we would be escorted through the desert with our husband onto the next castle. Crucified In Christ Marie Kelton 2/6/23 (David's notes in red) I had an open vision at the meeting, I was looking at the floor and then I saw drops of blood falling on the floor. I then saw the Lord getting whipped and with a crown of thorns on His head. I then saw myself in the same position. Then the vision ended. (As we are committed to taking up our cross by obeying the Word in our trials, we follow Jesus to the death of self and His resurrection life.)
Trials of Faith Prepare Us For Battle (3) (audio) David Eells - 11/1/23 Surrender Ownership Samuel Fire 5/11/23 I dreamt that I was with my family and with other brethren. We all decided to have a group BBQ at a water park. (The water park represents the apostate church where they go to be entertained while only playing in the water of the Word. The BBQ represents fiery trials for the flesh to be a sacrifice.) This park had a bunch of wild animals, which were treated kindly and were dotted around the area being left alone. They were like a theme to the water park. (The wild animals represent unsaved worldly people around us and in the apostate harlot church, who are part of the beast kingdom.) We were all having fun and were going to go for a swim. One of the neighbor adults was hesitant due to a fear of the animals and didn't know if they were dangerous. I said, “The worst animal here is a duck that is completely harmless and cute, which would just paddle nearby.” We were then all waist deep in water splashing, and the children were excited and having fun with shouts of glee. Suddenly I saw someone grab my laptop. They decided to use it and wanted to swim at the same time. I was gritting my teeth and being as lenient and kind as I could. In the natural I would have gone berserk and kept it safe and far away from anyone else. (God uses family and even brethren to try us and crucify our flesh.) (This kind of fiery trial is what the BBQ is doing... the flesh is being burned up when we do not give into it. Psa 39:3 My heart was hot within me; While I was musing the fire burned:…) Suddenly, they had it in the water with them before I could react. Then as expected, the laptop got wet and stopped working. They were trying to drip off the water to get it to work but to no avail. I was upset and grabbed it from them and said, “If you wanted to do this, have the expectations to replace this. All my life's work is on this, and I need to use this all the time.” They all fell silent. (Even when someone is being used by God to crucify our flesh, we are to NOT react in the flesh. We are to forgive and love them just as Jesus did.) (Pro 17:17 A friend loves at all times, but a brother is born in adversity. 1Pe 4:8 above all things being fervent in your love among yourselves; for love covereth a multitude of sins: 1Co 13:7 [love] beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.) I then felt sorry, and I repented to Father for my heart and reaction to them and the whole situation. I felt that our Father would easily replace it and I shouldn't get upset over something our Father had provided and everything belongs to Him. (It is the Holy Spirit who convicts us when we are wrong and brings us into the image of Jesus for all eternity, so we can let go of everything that isn't Holy and isn't the Word of God.) (Many do not repent and justify their feelings and actions towards others who behave in weakness or ignorance. It is a gift of God to repent when we realize we have reacted in the flesh in a situation.) Trials Passing Through The Harlot Church Tianna Fire 1/21/23 I dreamt that Samuel and I were journeying in a red van (We are covered in the blood of the Lamb.) to a good place (the Promised Land) with many other brethren in the back of the van. Samuel was driving and I was in the passenger seat next to him. We stopped in a town where they were professing Christianity. We only wanted to be there for the night to rest and then continue our journey. (There are many who claim Christianity, but they are part of the harlot church who look and act like the world. We are to pass through these church denominations.) We met the leader of the town; his name was Cornelius. (In the New Testament there was a Roman centurion named Cornelius, which means “of a horn.”) Everyone in the town tried to make us feel welcome, although they were not spiritually on the same page as us, they were still kind. (Most of Christianity are not spirit-filled and mind the things of the flesh.) Cornelius gave Samuel and I a tour of a house. The house was absolutely perfect and the type of house I would like; it was small with an open living area with only one bedroom and two bathrooms. Literally everything in the house was exactly how I would want it. One bathroom had a deep bath and a nice shower that was set up with climbing steps that I thought our son would love. In the dream, I kept repeating how this house was what I would like and how awesome the design was, and I would have it all the same way. (In our journey to the promised land, God knows our weaknesses and what our flesh would be tempted with, which we learn to say no to, and die to.) At the end of the tour, they said that if we stayed in this town that they would let us have the house for free. (This sounds like the “prosperity gospel” of worldly comforts.) I knew this house would be better than I expected, however I certainly did not want to stay in this town and I wanted to be regularly around people who are on fire for God and want more of Him and are growing in Him. I knew this was the enemy tempting me. (We are all faced with the desires of the flesh, and are tempted to compromise? We have to forsake all to follow the Lord and not given in to our flesh.) (1Co 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as man can bear: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation make also the way of escape, that ye may be able to endure it.) We tried to get alone with the brethren we traveled here with, but we were unable to because there were so many people in this community, and they just kept wanting to talk. I found out from one brother that he was also tempted with a free house. (The harlot churches tempt the flesh with worldly comforts, and nothing about growing up in the Lord and the crucified life. Pro 5:3 For the lips of a strange woman drop honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil: Pro 7:21 With her much fair speech she causeth him to yield;...) It was now night and everyone was gathered around a fire. We felt that we should leave this place right now, so we went to find the brethren to tell them we were going to leave. All but one of them agreed to leave, this one person decided to stay in this town. (Many people desire to stay in the comfort and ease of the denominational churches. In the parable of the Sower, this person represents those where the seed was sown among the thorns. Luk 8:14 And that [seed] which fell among the thorns, these are they that have heard, and as they go on their way they are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.) We looked for the van to leave but we couldn't find it anywhere, so we decided to just walk the rest of the way. We all planned to meet in a forest just outside of the town. On our way out, some people noticed we were leaving, and they started chasing after us. We ran to the meeting spot and together we started running through the forest. We didn't know where to go but felt in Spirit when to stop and where to turn etc. A few of the brethren gave up running and they didn't want to stay in the forest so they just went back to the last town. (The apostle Paul exhorts us to continue in the race and endure to the end. 1Co 9:24 Know ye not that they that run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? Even so run; that ye may attain. Heb 12:1…lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,) (Not everyone who starts out with us in the race continues to the end. Many fall away and go back to their worldly ways. Many of Jesus' disciples chose not to continue to follow Him in John 6:66 (Notice the number) because they felt His words were too hard for them to hear and to do them. Also we see in the 6th Book, Romans 6:6 (666) knowing this, that our old man was crucified with him, that the body of sin might be done away, that so we should no longer be in bondage to sin.) We ran until the next day, and at around midday we arrived at another town. We jumped over a fence to get into the town and searched around not wanting to draw attention to ourselves. Samuel heard the Lord say that He would provide another vehicle in this town to continue the journey. While we were in this town a few people got distracted with food in a marketplace and they decided it was too much to continue the journey. (Many Pentecostal people get in idolatry with food and get weighed down with the world.) They wanted to settle down and stay in a place where they would always have access to food, water, shelter and other comforts. (So they didn't have to contend with the trials of living by faith and chose to go back to the worldly comforts and fleshly satisfaction. Paul says in Php 3:19…whose god is the belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things. 2Ti 2:3-5 Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No soldier on service entangleth himself in the affairs of this life; that he may please him who enrolled him as a soldier. 5 And if also a man contend in the games, he is not crowned, except he have contended lawfully. The Israelites didn't like the Manna in the wilderness. They longed for the flesh pots and the foods they were accustomed to in Egypt where they were in bondage to the old man. God's people are being called out of Egypt to follow the Man-child Jesus into the wilderness where they lived the crucified life, where they were to deny self and learn to rely completely on God to provide.) We met a few people in this town who wanted to join us. The Lord blessed us with a green van (Green represents life) and more brethren, although we had lost all the brethren who started out with us, except one. (Again, in the parable of the Seed and the Sower, only one went on to bear the fruit of Christ. Mar 4:20 And those are they that were sown upon the good ground; such as hear the word, and accept it, and bear fruit, thirtyfold, and sixtyfold, and a hundredfold. Not everyone continues with us. As we have seen some have come and gone from us and we will see this in the Tribulation period too. 1Jn 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they all are not of us.) We continued our journey in the green van, not wanting to get distracted and keeping watch to make sure we didn't give into the flesh but persevere in getting to our desired destination. Php 3:14 I press on toward the goal unto the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (The high calling of Christ to be in the Bride and manifest the 100-fold fruit.) Cleansing Idols From The Heart Anonymous12/10/22 (David's notes in red) I sought the Lord regarding idols in our heart and heard: “Be aware of idols of ‘insecurity' and ‘selfishness'. You need to reshape and rethink on how you perceive the life in Christ. (He is our example.) Col 3:3-4 For ye died, and your life is hid with the Christ in God. 4 When the Christ, our life, shall be manifested, then shall ye also with him be manifested in glory. Eph 4:22-24 that ye put away, as concerning your former behavior, the old man, that waxeth corrupt after the lusts of deceit; 23 and that ye be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and put on the new man, that after God hath been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. Insecurity is where you want or require something, that when put to the test of does it promote eternity with Me, would be thrown out into the fire. I supply all your needs and desires for your heart. Continue to replace the earthly and always put Me first and keep a watch for the things that could be contrary to My Word. (Remember that we own nothing, we are only stewards handling it for God. Luk 14:33 So therefore whosoever he be of you that renounceth not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. Father will supply our every need, not necessarily our every greed.) Mat 6:33 But seek ye first his kingdom, and righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. Php 4:19 And my God shall supply your every need according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Psa 37:4-5 Delight thyself also in Jehovah; And he will give thee the desires of thy heart. 5 Commit thy way unto Jehovah; Trust also in him, and he will bring it to pass. 1Th 5:6 so then let us not sleep, as do the rest, but let us watch and be sober. Selfishness is where there is pride and misunderstanding, especially what has been taught and learned through the world's ways, comes between us. Pro 13:10 By pride cometh only contention;… 1Co 10:24 Let no man seek his own, but each his neighbor's good. Php 2:4-5 not looking each severally to his own things, but each severally also to those of others. 5 Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. The renewal of your mind is the best place to begin, to be cleansed and sanctified. After these things are put into check and aligned back according to My Son and My Word, you can receive and manifest 100fold! Rom 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, well-pleasing to God, your spiritual service. 2 And be not fashioned according to this age: but be transformed by the renewing of the mind, that ye may prove what is the good and well-pleasing and perfect will of God. Col 3:10 and have put on the new man, that is being renewed unto knowledge after the image of him that created him: Luk 8:8 And other fell into the good ground, and grew, and brought forth fruit a hundredfold.... Mar 10:29-30 Jesus said, Amen I say unto you, There is no one that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or mother, or father, or children, or fields, for my sake, and for the gospel's sake, 30 but he shall receive hundredfold now... Like when a bath is filled up with water. You get in, and the water rises. When you get out, you can fill it up all the way. The objects within (idols) are of no value and when removed, then they enable more room to be filled with Me. Aim and focus on the hardest and most hidden of evil. This is self. Learn to hate the concept and mindset of being an individual. Instead, you need to incorporate My Son as He is the perfect replacement. Psa 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; And renew a right spirit within me. Joh 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease. Pro 8:13 The fear of Jehovah is to hate evil: Pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, And the perverse mouth, do I hate. To get past all of self and anything that is carnal and fleshly, you need to seek and find and rout out all the things that can be of this type. Keep an eye and ear on the self (watch out for outward evil manifestations) and bring it into the Light for full exposure. Eph 5:8 for ye were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord: walk as children of light. Eph 5:11-13 and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even reprove them; 12 for the things done by them in secret it is a shame even to speak of. 13 But all things when reproved are manifested by the light: for everything manifested is light. (Psa 18:28 For thou wilt light my lamp: Jehovah my God will lighten my darkness.) Speak it out, and pray it out, and know that it is a process for it all to go. (Sanctification or holiness is a process where God shows us what needs to be cleansed and gives us the faith that we were cleansed.) Believe that you are at the end of your current state, and are already perfected in Christ. It is just the flesh and soul with understanding that needs to catch up. Col 1:27 to whom God was pleased to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the nations, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Jas 1:2-4 Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into manifold temptations; 3 knowing that the proving of your faith worketh patience. 4 And let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing. (1Jn 4:17 Herein is love made perfect with us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as he is, even so are we in this world.) The Seed Samuel Fire 1/13/23 (David's notes in red) I saw a giant oak tree dropping acorns (the seed) from its branches. The tree was praying that these seeds would sprout. (We are like this tree when we sow seeds that we expect will bring forth fruit.) Some animal, maybe a squirrel, grabbed one and broke it open, but for some reason was startled and dropped it on the ground. (The little beast natures in our life seek to devour the seed that it become unfruitful.) It landed where a smaller tree had been knocked over and it fell in the soft fresh dirt near it. (The soft fresh dirt represents the good ground in the heart to receive the seed of the Word. Joh 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a grain of wheat fall into the earth and die, it abideth by itself alone; but if it die, it beareth much fruit.) The oak tree somehow knew this and was pleased because that would be a good spot to grow. (Throughout the Bible, God likens people to trees; Israel is like the fig tree. Hos 9:10 I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the first-ripe in the fig-tree at its first season: Mar 8:24 And he looked up, and said, I see men; for I behold them as trees, walking. Isa 61:3 …that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of Jehovah, that he may be glorified.) (Jer 17:7-8 Blessed is the man that trusteth in Jehovah, and whose trust Jehovah is. 8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters,... neither shall cease from yielding fruit. Mat 12:33 Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or make the tree corrupt, and its fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by its fruit. Father plants them where He desires and causes them to grow and bear fruit. But those that do not bear good fruit prove not to be His and are cut down.) I then saw us at Burger King restaurant where we basically gave all our food to a young couple, who we prayed for and shared the Gospel seed with them. Then we bought more food and this time we drove off to eat somewhere else. (This represents constantly sowing our seed into people.) (We always feel edified when we share the seed with others. Ecc. 11:6 In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thy hand; for thou knowest not which shall prosper, whether this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good. According to the parable of the Sower, 3 of 4 do not bear fruit. We don't know who will “hear” and receive it, but we sow the seeds to many people and the Lord causes the fruit to bear forth in His own.) (As seeds drop into the ground and the husk dies so it grows and bears fruit, so our flesh is to die to everything carnal and worldly so it can grow and prosper in the life of Jesus. The Word of God in the parable of the Sower is the seed that brings forth that life.) Travel To Peace Anonymous 1/4/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamt that my husband and I were journeying to a place named Tully. (Tully: Celtic/Irish origin means “peaceful, flood, and from the hill”. Tully was a very beautiful place, it was very green, perfect temperatures and was like a paradise on earth, with all earthly delights. (The earthly delights represent trials of fleshly lusts we must overcome, and Jesus is our peace as He leads us through the wilderness towards this Mt Zion, and we continue to abide in Christ Jesus (heavenly). Joh 16:33 These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye may have peace. In the world ye have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.) To get to this heavenly place we had to follow a long path that went through many different towns. All the land to get there was very green and a tropical climate and the path went through the center of the land. As we began this journey to Tully, most of it seemed to go very easily, there were no struggles or difficulties. (In the beginning of our walk we may not experience much tribulation but it does lie ahead for “Through much tribulation shall you enter the Kingdom”) Then we saw the first town ahead we had to pass through. This town also looked so very beautiful, and all the land here was green. However, I saw in spirit an extremely deep ocean trench just before entering this town. The trench was hidden by of all the green grass, and if someone walked through this particular area, they would fall into the trench. It was extremely deep and honestly, it was very scary. (The deep ocean (waters) represents the nations of the world where some fall back into their old lifestyles like the parable of the sower. Rev 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the harlot sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. The grass represents the flesh (1Pe 1:24 For, All flesh is as grass…) which hides the danger. The trench represents the hidden snares, and traps laid out by our enemies to try to entrap us. Psa 140:5 The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; They have spread a net by the wayside;... Psa 35:7 For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit; Without cause have they digged a pit for my soul. Psa 119:110 The wicked have laid a snare for me; Yet have I not gone astray from thy precepts.) But it was revealed to us so that we would not fall in it. (The Lord leads us by the Spirit revealing the enemies' plans and the way of escape.) In the next scene I saw that we had somehow safely made it through the town with the hidden trench and we were being introduced to the man who founded the town. This man was extremely rich and very evil. He was telling us how and why he founded it. The logo for the town was an orange and white crab with navy blue as the background. (Crabs roam on both land and sea; they hide and use their claws to catch and hold their unsuspecting prey.) I knew this man had evil desires and intentions. As he was talking, he did not seem to have any issues with us. He showed us the town and it looked beautiful but there was so much hidden agenda. (“They hide and use their claws to catch and hold their unsuspecting prey.”) He took us to this underground motel that he owned. (Crabs hide underground above or below water) The rooms went extremely deep underground in water, very deep like an ocean trench and it was so very dark. There was an elevator that quickly descended underground; there was one room per floor. He showed us one room which was laid out like a large, tall motel room. One half of the room was filled with water containing sharks. In the other half was water containing an octopus. (Both are predators) When we returned from the underground motel, we met the man's wife who seemed friendly, and I couldn't understand how she could be with such an evil man. We shared the gospel with them both and spoke about our Lord and the woman was receiving but the man was not. It appeared that this man held nothing against us, despite his evil intentions. (I.e. hiding his evil intentions. I was reminded how Christian Children go to college to get a higher education to get better job but they are often spiritually killed by liberal professors as Satan's helpers hiding there.) I said to the man that I am believing and hoping for God to give him repentance, even if it is only a short time before his death, I want him to repent and be with our Lord. (Bless everyone, with truth in love NENT Luk 6:27-28 But I say unto you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to those hating you, 28 bless those cursing you, pray for those reviling you.) We said goodbye to them and went to leave the town when we overheard some men shouting. We went over to them and saw how they were trying to stop six Christians from following Jesus. The Christians refused and were threatened and then they took them to the underground rooms containing the sharks and octopus. It was made known that they put the Christians in there to kill them but if they survived, they would be taken to another underground area containing lions to kill them. (Christians are persecuted, and killed, in covert and overt ways everywhere. We are to be steadfast in the faith, despite the physical risks. Mat 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up unto tribulation, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all the nations for my name's sake.) (Mat 10:28 And fear not them that kill the body, but cannot kill the soul: but rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in geenna.) Two of these people survived the sharks and octopus and were taken to the underground room of lions. The men then said that they wanted my baby son. I either said it aloud or in my mind, ‘No because Jesus has set us free from sin and death and we won't physically die because it's not us living'. They started chasing me, and I knew that they couldn't touch me, but I wasn't sure about my son, so I ran out of the underground cave with them chasing me. I started flying forward and off the ground. I asked God to take my baby now up to Heaven, like Enoch and Elijah were taken and that God won't let him physically die. I lifted him up to Heaven, while flying and I saw him be lifted up higher and higher out of my arms. (NENT Rev 12:5 And she was delivered of a son, a male, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and unto his throne.) I woke up. AIDS In Water Marie Kelton 10/14/23 (David's notes in Red) I had a dream, that I was telling someone that the government or the D-S was putting HIV/AIDs in the water. (There have been many prophesies about this happening and the D-S are always up to de-pop-ulation. But behind all this, God is in control. He will use this to test His Saints to see if they will believe His Word and trust Him for His protection, that no weapon formed against us shall prosper. (Mar 16:18 …they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall in no wise hurt them:) For many, this will be a judgement that we hope will bring them to repentance.) s The Cross Samuel Fire 10/1/22 (David's notes in red) I looked at a bible cover, that we read occasionally when near the kitchen, and as I looked at the symbol of the Cross, I felt the Lord say: The cross, it is an upside-down sword. A declaration of victory. There are no more foes to battle and it is pushed into the earth (Just like the long end of the cross is pushed into the earth) just as a victorious knight would do at the end of battle. It is done, it is finished! NENT Luk 11:22-23 but when a stronger than he shall come upon and overcome him, he taketh from him his whole armor wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. 23 Who is not with me is against me; and who gathereth not with me scattereth. Joh 17:4 I glorified thee on earth, having accomplished the work which thou hast given me to do. Joh 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. 1Co 15:57 but thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (Praise God for He has already done it ALL, He has given us the grace to overcome the flesh and to get through every trial, He has given us the faith in His Word, He HAS set us free from the power of darkness, (He has redeemed us out of the hand of our enemies.) He HAS set us free from the curse of sin and death, it is finished!) Glory to Father God Almighty ♡ Question Regarding Chest Pain Anonymous 9/9/22 (David's notes in red) I had been having chest pain and I sought The Lord asking what was causing it and this is what I heard. The Lord - “You asked of Me to deliver you and heal you; I already have and your faith in your soul is lining up with the Spirit. The Spirit is now in charge over you. Your soul cries to Me and aches and yearns for Me. I have heard and will manifest in you more. Where it hurts is the body. It has had damage and sin, and this opposing habitat of evil is being cleansed – it does not like or want to let go. Each time My hand (Angel) and in prayer with thanks and praise to Me, I am destroying this and creating in you a clean heart. The flesh needs to be scrubbed and stripped and all wounds exposed to the truth, light, love and Holy Spirit. I Am digging deep into all roots and flushing out all this.” (Eze 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you; and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.) (Heb 12:15 looking carefully lest there be any man that falleth short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby the many be defiled;) (Ephesians 5:26 that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word.) (Psa 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, And bindeth up their wounds.) The Lord said, “Your soul and mind is set on Me and the body proclaims Me on your lips - the body must obey My Spirit. As the body learns and realizes it cannot do anything without your will, soul and mind, it obeys Me. Then it tries to resist Me but loses every battle. DO NOT CONDEMN YOURSELF IN BEING OBEDIENT TO ME! The pain is ongoing and will be filled more with My love, Spirit and Truth. Continue to voice it out (speak with your heart) the Living Waters and think on My Son's life. (blood, life and wine) Let go. Tell the body – obey. Each time it hurts – I Am here with you. Remember, My Son did all for you and showed that the toughest challenge has a greater reward – which you can endure, and the victory was done at the cross. The pain you feel is Me cleaning you up of all that is not welcome or required by me. It hurts because was stained for too long. Now as it is gone you also hurt from something you never felt truly before. This is My real love for you. Be in joy, I made you new. My Son desires you and no pain or flesh or evil or lies or unclean vessel – nothing can come between Me and you and Our marriage for eternity. Bless you for your reward will come more each moment. As the wind, and breath and heart beats, you come to Me even closer. I will not forsake this amazing work I have done, and you have proven to Me – even before you realize it – that I want you. I perfected it all for My glory. All this pain/hurt is no more as my words prove it all – and the last is death – it is defeated even at the beginning. I AM THE ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE EVERLASTING – and you already are with Me! What hurts is that way because it is cast out forever and cannot win. WE ARE VICTORIOUS IN CHRIST JESUS – I LOVE YOU!”
Son Of Perdition Hello Brethren! God bless you. Thank you for joining us. We've been into some deep studying here of the end times and revelations of the Word and Father, we just ask You in Jesus name that You would be here with us today. Lord, anoint me to be able to get these points across to my brethren Lord, and that You would bless them to be able to perceive and understand these revelations and we trust in You, Lord because You're the Great Revelator, we're not. We trust in You to open our understanding into blessings today in Jesus name. Amen. Well, brethren, I think that what I'm going to share with you today is concerning the real true nature, and the real true story of the Son of Perdition. You know, years ago when I was writing an article called the Son of Perdition in my in my book on our site, America's Last Days and the book is called Hidden Manna For The End Times. I was writing the article on the Son of Perdition. I was in the midst of it and a brother with the gift of prophecy called me. He said he found out about me because he sat down his computer one day and the Holy Spirit spoke to him the address to type in. And in those days I had a very complicated address. It wasn't simple at all, and he typed in this address and ended up at my website. And he was very enthused with some of the things he found there. And so he called me and he said, “David, you'll never guess how I found out about you?” I said no, so tell me. So he explained to me how the Holy Spirit gave him the address and then he started sharing something else with me, he said, “You know, the Lord told me that next month I'm going to see the Son of Perdition.” And I kind of came back at him, I said, “Well, I don't know how that's possible that you should see the Son Of Perdition next month.” Because I knew what the Bible had to say about when the Son of Perdition was going to be revealed, so on and so forth. And when I said that the Holy Spirit just said, “Be quiet.” “You're writing this article on the Son of Perdition,” (which I was doing at that particular time.) “And when you get through with it, he's going to read it and he's going to see the Son of Perdition.” I said, Okay. So I didn't say anything to the brother, but, sure enough, it was the next month when I got through with it and I sent it to him and he read it and he said, “I see it, I see it!” Because it has been hidden, folks, it's been hidden from the wise and prudent, and revealed unto babes, that's God's way. And I want to tell you something that the Son of Perdition is a corporate body of people. I shared with you a few teachings back, how that the Lord gave me a word of knowledge and wisdom years ago. He said to me, “Everything that happened in the Gospels and in the Book of Acts will be repeated in the end time, except the cast of characters will be multiplied many times over.” And what the Lord showed me is what happened in the Gospels and Acts. That whole scenario is repeated except the characters like Jesus and like the apostles and like Judas and like the Sanhedrin and the Roman government; these all became multiplied on a worldwide scene. And they're being enacted again now. I want to remind you of Isa 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. which means “God with us.” The word sign there is the word “oth” and it means, “to come” literally means to come. “Oth” is like the word, omen. It's a sign of something to come, and in Chapter 7 and Chapter 8 it speaks about Immanuel several times. And but in verse 17, there's another sign. In Isa 8:16 Bind thou up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. (Disciples is not the common word in the whole testament.) 17 And I will wait for Jehovah, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him. 18 Behold, I and the children whom Jehovah hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel. As you know, Jesus did signs and wonders and his children did too. He called them his children, his disciples, His signs and wonders. If these people were for signs also, a sign of something to come, then Judas Iscariot was a sign of something to come. He represented also a large corporate body in our day. Fathers pass on to larger and larger groups in a geometric progression. Like Israel at the beginning was a man, but Israel, as you went on, was a corporate body of people. So we had this sign of Judas, and the Lord told me that this was a sign of a corporate body of people to come, and that everything that happened there is going to happen again. So let's examine this a little bit. Now Jesus said in Joh 17:12 While I was with them, I kept them in thy name which thou hast given me: and I guarded them, and not one of them perished, but the son of perdition; (That was Judas.) That the scriptures might be fulfilled. Only one of the people that the Lord had chosen to walk with him, the Son of Perdition perished. You know in Joh 13:18 …he that eateth my bread lifted up his heel against me. Judas represented a corporate body of people. That in our day will lift up their heel against the people of God, their brethren. Jesus told us that this would be a corporate body in Mat 24:10 And then shall many stumble, and shall deliver up one another, and shall hate one another. Notice that Jesus said many would stumble and deliver up, just like Judas delivered up Jesus. But now it's delivering up one another. It's delivering up the corporate Body of Christ, and since the Body of Christ needs to go to its cross, it needs a corporate body of Judas. And this is God's plan, folks. We're going to study a lot in 2 Thessalonians. This also speaks of a Son of Perdition that I'm convinced that almost nobody knows about. 2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, touching the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together unto him; Notice it's talking about the coming of the Lord and the rapture the Saints. 3 let no man beguile you in any wise: for it will not be, except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition. Notice what he said, folks. The very opposite of what most people say it says here, is what he's saying. He said, “the coming of the Lord for his Saints is not going to happen except the falling away comes first and this man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition.” People say what they're never going to see this contrary to what the scripture says. The word falling away here is the word apostasia, where we get our word, apostasy. It means, “a defection from the truth.” Just as Judas was hidden in the midst of the Body of Christ in that day, and “one revealed until there was a falling away.” The same thing is going to happen in our day. Judas represents a corporate body of the Son of Perdition who's hidden in the midst of the Body of Christ today, that will be used to deliver up one another. This I'll tell you, in the name of Jesus and I think we can prove it pretty well from the Scriptures too. Jesus at the time of the Last Supper, for instance, when Judas did end up delivering the Lord up, Jesus was asked by the disciples, who it was that would betray him? And of course, they all said, “Is it I?” and “Is it I?” That I they weren't sure of themselves even. Joh 13:26 Jesus therefore answereth, He it is, for whom I shall dip the sop, and give it him. So when he had dipped the sop, he taketh and giveth it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. 27 And after the sop, then entered Satan into him. Notice two things entered into Judas here, Satan and the SOP. There's a connection here; it's a type and a shadow. The Lord said to me when I was reading this one day, He said, “SOP, S.O.P. Son of Perdition.” I thought, “Wow!” You say, David, that's just in English. I know it, but I don't care. I know what the Lord said to me and it really makes sense, SOP, S.O.P. Son of Perdition. That's what He said. You know Satan entered into Judas at that time making him the mark. We studied the mark a while back. We found out that the mark represented both the word and the name. It was the character of God that He used to recreate His image in His Body. Well, this is what was created in Judas and it wasn't the image of Christ. It was the image of Antichrist. And you know what he became? He became an abomination of desolation. And I'm going to explain that to you. First, I want you to look at a little bit of timing here with me. Jesus taught these disciples, including Judas for 3 1/2 years. At the end of that 3 1/2 years, the son of perdition fell away. He was revealed to the disciples who he was and he betrayed the Lord, and he became desolate. The word desolate in the text means without God, he became desolate, in that God forsook him, he became reprobate and as you know, he hung himself. Well, in accordance with this type, the Man-child is going to teach for 3 1/2 years, the corporate Man-child. Remembered that Jesus was going to be manifested in our day as a first fruits corporate body too, called the Man-Child in Revelation 12. So the Man-child is going to teach also for 3 1/2 years the disciples among whom is, I might say, some “Sons of Perdition” and this will bring us to the mid tribulation, when the Bible teaches that the mark, the image and the abomination manifests. Now what I'm going to prove to you is that that mark and that image and that abomination has to do with Judas in the Body of Christ. It happens at the exact same time according to the Scriptures. Now first I want to point out to you that, that God used the hand of Judas; it was his plan. God put him in the midst of that body. Jesus answered them, Did not I choose you the twelve, and one of you is a devil? (Joh 13:21). See, He knew from the beginning, the Bible says who it was that would betray him. He told the disciples, “One of you shall betray me.” He said, “One of you.” He had faith that was going to happen because it was supposed to happen. One of you shall betray me, he said. …And what thou doest do quickly? (Joh 13:27) He told Judas at the last moment. See, this is a job that God wants to done. God is using the hand of Judas. It's his plan. He's not going to depart from it. Act 2:23 him being delivered up by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, (This was God's plan.) Ye by the hand of lawless men, did crucify and slay. God used the hand of lawless men. Now this is the word lawless here just happens to be the same word in 2 Thessalonians where it says 2Th 2:3 …the man of sin. (The word sin there, is lawlessness, the same word.) …berevealed the son of perdition. The son of perdition is the man of lawlessness and God used the hand of the son of perdition. Notice, He used the hand of a man of lawlessness to crucify the Body of Christ, and so it's going to be in our day. I've seen many of these folks. I've seen quite a few of them come against me in this ministry. And of course, they do humble you, they do crucify you. They do have a wonderful work in your life. The Lord said to me one day when I was looking into this, one of those words of knowledge He gave me, He said, “Look up Judas Iscariot.” So I did and Judas is a Hebrew word that means, “to use the hand.” Wow! There it is again, “to use the hand.” So I looked up Iscariot and I found that Iscariot came from two words. Is, which is a Hebrew word for “man.” And “cariot” is a Babylonian word for “city.” Now if you put that all together, here's what you come up with, “to use the hand.” (Hebrew in this case it's Christian because we've been grafted into the olive tree.) “To use the hand of a Christian man who is a Babylonian city.” This was proven to me all through the scriptures after the Lord showed me this about this city that's in the midst of God's city. You know the Son of Perdition is a city of Babylon, a corporate body of people that are hidden in the corporate body of the City of God; God's people. So you've got an evil city, an evil corporate body of people in the midst of a righteous city. In other words, you've got a Babylonish temple in the midst of a true Temple of God. Mat 5:14 ye are the light of the world. A city, that set on a hill cannot be hid. He said his disciples were a city. And here you've got this Babylonian city, “Iscariot,” a man who is a Babylonian city in the midst of them that doesn't belong there. You know the falling away and the mark will separate the spiritual harlot city from the true city of God. It will separate the spiritual harlot temple from the Temple of God. This is God's plan. The Body of Christ won't be ready to meet him until this happens. I'm going to prove that to you. Judas was a type of the end time, Son of Perdition who betrayed Christ to the Sanhedrin. And the Sanhedrin in that day was the corporate false prophet. That's right, there was a corporate false prophet in Jesus's day and it's a much larger corporate false prophet in our day. There's no place in the Bible that says that there is one false prophet, not any place. There is a symbol of the false prophet in Revelation Chapter 13 and people call it the false prophet. But there's no words to say that. Jesus said there were many false prophets. That's a body there, a body of people. The second beast in Revelation 13 and we'll talk about that a little later. Well, like Babylon was guilty of the blood of the Body of Christ and Revelation 18:24, so Judas was guilty of the blood of the Body of Christ. You see the parallel there? And Mat 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up unto tribulation… (See, it's happening in a corporate way. It's going to happen in a corporate way) and shall kill you, and you shall be hated of all the nations…. (That's the Beast Kingdom) for my namesake. And then shall many stumble. (Which is to fall away. Remember the falling away of the Son of Perdition?) Many shall stumble and shall deliver up one another and shall hate one another 11 and many false prophets shall arise. And she'll lead many astray. So you see, folks, it is going to happen just the way Jesus said. The people are looking at the types and the shadows, and they're basically repeating the types and the shadows, but not interpreting them. Jesus interpreted them for us. Paul said in 2Th 2:4 (the son of perdition)he that opposeth and exalteth himself against all that is called God or that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the temple of God, setting himself forth as God. Twice he talked about exalting self and setting self forth as God. We'll look at that in a minute. First, I want to look at this word, he says “Sitteth in the Temple of God.” The word for Temple here is the word “naos” and it is used nine times by the apostle Paul, like in this case. And in every case that it is used, it is speaking about the spiritual temple of God's people in every case. Now the word temple, by the way, is used 71 more times, but it's the word “hereon”. And it's always used as the literal temple. What are we saying? What we're saying is that the Son of Perdition sits in the temple, but it's not a physical temple, it is the temple of God's people. Just like Judas sat in the midst of a temple. It was the Temple of God's people, the Body of Christ. And of course, the people who see only the letter they're pointing you towards something that's going to happen over there in the Middle East, they think. Which has nothing to do with your life and will be no help to you in the situation that you're about to find yourself. “The letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.” (2Co 3:6) Just as Judas was in the body of the believers, the latter day, Son of Perdition will take the mark, (Which of course identifies him as a member of the body of the Beast.) and will sit in the midst of the Temple of God's people. So you've got a personal temple of Judas himself being in the midst of the Temple of God's people. And this verse goes on to say, an abomination, which maketh desolate. It is an abomination for the beast to be in the Temple of God's people. And that's exactly who Judas was, and that's who Judas, the Son of Perdition in the future will be, because he will take the mark of the beast. He will have an abomination that maketh desolate. Everybody who takes that mark, as you know, will be desolate. God will depart from them. They will be what the Bible calls reprobate. Reprobate is a word used in the New Testament for the departure of God from an individual temple. But desolate is the term that's used for the corporate temple. Tit 1:16 They profess that they know God; but by their works they deny him, being abominable... There it is. These people who claim to know God, but their works don't prove that they don't agree with that. They claim to know God, but their works proved them to be abominable. That's an abomination in the midst of God's temple, when a person that does this, they profess they know God, but by their works, they deny Him being abominable and disobedient. There's not any premium put on obedience today. But if you're not obedient, you're abominable. And profess they know God. But by their works, they deny being abominable and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. And there is the word for desolate that concerns the individual temple. See, we are a body of temples that that is made into a holy temple according to Ephesians. Notice that the son of perdition “exalts himself” in the verse that we just looked at “and he sets “himself” forth as God.” Do you know that that's pretty common? With the people who are disobedient and abominable whenever they go their own way, do their own thing, who is ruling in that temple? The Beast or God? Well, the flesh is, self is ruling in that temple. And you know, these parables are meant to hide these wonderful revelations from the wise and prudent, but revealed unto babes. He doesn't want the Pharisees to find out about it, and he don't want their people to find out about it. Because this is revelation that He's reserved for His children. So he “exalts self” to rule as God in his individual temple, which is in the corporate temple. So you've got a Babylonish temple in the midst of God's temple here. And by the way, there are many sons of perdition. So you're talking about a corporate temple in the midst of a corporate temple. Rom 16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Christ, but their own belly; You know what your belly represents? Something that cries out to be served and I tell you what, you serve it pretty good too, don't you? The belly represents “self” to the Jews that represented “self” They don't serve Christ, they serve their belly just like it says. He exalts “himself” he sets “himself” forth as God; Where? In the temple of the People of God. and by their smooth and fair speech, they beguile the hearts of the innocents. Oh yes, these sons of perdition, some of them are pretty smooth talkers. And they might be pretty impressive to some people, but they won't be to the right people, Php 3:18 For many walk, of whom I told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: You know the cross, of course, is something we need to embrace. It is the death of self. You know why they don't want the death of self is because their belly is their God. They want to serve “self.” They don't want to serve Christ. If you don't take up your cross and follow Him, you will serve self, but you will also be reprobated at the end. And in verse 19 whose end is perdition. (There they are, the sons of perdition. They serve self rather than serving Christ.) …their end is perdition, which is a word meaning destruction. They will be destroyed. whose God is the belly. They're sitting in the Temple of God serving “self” “Self” is ruling in the people of God. …whose God is the belly and whose glory is their shame, who mind earthly things. What is this? This is what we talked about earlier. About the spiritual mark of the beast. The mark on the hand or on the forehead? The forehead, meaning the mind. Those who walk after the mind of the flesh serve their belly. They have the spiritual mark of the beast, and as we saw earlier, they will take the physical mark of the beast. Now Judas also was an apostle. He was ordained to be a leader in the corporate temple. As some sons of perdition will also be in our day. The Beast will be ruling in the temple. See, if you have the spiritual mark of the Beast and you mind earthly things and you're walking after the mind of the flesh, which Paul said in Romans chapter 8, you must die if you do that. So if you mind these earthly things and you're sitting in the Temple of God, that's the Beast ruling in the Temple of God because you've got the “mark of the Beast” that identifies you as a member of the body of the Beast. Now folks, let me tell you, we've got a corporate temple worldwide and in the midst of this temple, increasingly, the Son of Perdition will be coming to rule. You say, “David it looks like pretty much like that, now.” “Yes, I agree with you.” That is absolutely right. Before the end, we're going to prove which of these people will repent and which of them will go on into perdition as Sons of Perdition ruling in the body. Now the Son of Perdition will take the mark, which is the final abomination that maketh him desolate. Kind of like the straw that breaks the camel's back. God says, thus far and no more, basically. They become the image of the Beast in the apostate temple, in the corporate apostate temple of all of the Sons of Perdition. And here's the proof, Dan 9:27 and he shall make a firm covenant with many for one week. We saw this was the spirit of the Roman Empire. The principality that that brought Rome together and ruled over the world. Because the rest of that text also speaks about the Prince of Greece and the Prince of Persia, and they're all talking about all the Princess there are principalities. And he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease. And upon the wing (or pinnacle) of abominations shall come one that maketh desolate. Now, back up a little bit. Let's look at this, He shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease. We found out what the sacrifice was of the true Christian. It is to present their bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God, which is our reasonable service. (Rom 12:1) But when you take the mark of the beast, you no longer serve God because you're a member of the Beast you're now serving “self”. You're serving the beast; you're serving the flesh. And so, a person that goes into this covenant comes into agreement in this covenant, and takes the mark of the beast, that is causing “the sacrifice and the oblation to God to cease.” Folks, there is a continual burnt offering that has been offered since the time of Jesus, and it is the Christians who have sacrificed their life taking up their cross to follow him. They are continually a burnt offering. They go through the fiery trials to burn up the wood, hay, and the stubble in their life. That is their sacrifice of their body. But I want to tell you that there are others in our midst that will not touch that with a 10-foot pole. That is not their plan. They don't want to lose their life in this world. Jesus said, if you don't lose your life in this world you won't gain your Zoe life, your higher life, your heavenly life. So this covenant and this mark that identifies these people is the cause of the sacrifice and the oblation to cease. And on the wing (or pinnacle) of abominations… Let me tell you that the pinnacle of abominations is the mark. Because just like Revelation 14 tells us that anybody that takes this mark is reprobated. They are going to be tormented day and night forever and ever in the presence of the angels. They are reprobated. So, upon the pinnacle of abomination shall come one that maketh desolate. That is, the mark of the beast. And I want to say that for the corporate temple it is the image of the beast in the temple. The image of the beast, as we saw, the image or the icon, is created by the charagma or character. And the character is the word of God, Jesus Christ for our Kingdom. But the Beast also has his character. And it is being imprinted on the people who walk after the flesh, the mind of the flesh and the works of the flesh. They are serving their fathers, like Jesus told the leaders, “You're of your father, the devil.” That was the leaders of Judaism. So this makes them desolate, which means, of course, deserted by God. Even unto a full end and that determined shall wrath be poured out upon the desolate. There they are, these people will go through the wrath of God, not the righteous. They'll go through the tribulation, but they won't go through the wrath. The wrath is that year in which the Sons of Perdition will go into and be destroyed. And of course Judas hanged himself, which is a spiritual thing, of cutting off the breath, or the spirit of life. He cut himself off from the spirit of life. The word, breath and spirit are the same in Hebrew. That's the spiritual type there. Now the corporate Son of Perdition will take the mark and he will go back to his Christian assemblies to fulfill the word. Mat 24:15 When therefore ye see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let him that readeth understand). Watch carefully now, When you see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken by Daniel standing in the holy place.? No, literally the Greek word here is “a” holy place, but since people thought well, there is only one holy place, their theology got in there, so they just put it the way they wanted it. But did you know the Textus Receptus, which so many people rely on and commend, the ancient manuscripts, and the numeric pattern or the Numeric Bible all say, “a” holy place. “The” is not in their, the Received Texts, ancient manuscripts or numeric pattern; it's not there. “A” as opposed to “the” holy place implies individual bodies of believers that the son of perdition are in the midst of. When you see the abomination of desolation standing in a holy place; what did he tell you? Flee! That's the time of Great Tribulation, great tribulation. That means the 2nd 3 1/2 years. When you see that, that's the end of the peaceful time of being taught for 3 1/2 years by the Lord. 2Th 2:6 And now ye know that which restraineth, to the end that he may be revealed in his own season. Now what keeps, or what restrains the son of perdition from being revealed? We have verse 3 Accept the falling away come first, the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition. See the thing that restrains the revealing of the Son of Perdition is the falling away, it has to happen first. When Judas fell away, everybody knew, Aha, it's Judas! They were asking the Lord moments before. Well, so the thing that restrains the revealing of the. Son of tradition is the falling away. Just as the pattern with Judas clearly shows, he was hidden in the midst of the body, and the disciples didn't know it until the falling away happened. Then suddenly they realized Judas was the one Jesus was talking about. 2Th 2:7-8 for the mystery of lawlessness doth already work: only there is only there is one that restraineth now, until he become out of the midst. See the one that's restraining the coming of the Lord is the Son of Perdition in the midst of the body. I'm going to explain this in just a minute. …until he become out of the midst, he is restraining the coming of the Lord because he has to come out of the midst of the Body of Christ first. And this “become out of the mist” is what it says in the Greek numeric pattern. It's what it says in the Received Text, and it's what it says in the ancient manuscripts. So why did they translate it differently? Well, in the original is very clear what we're talking about here. And the verse goes on, 8 And then shall be revealed the lawless one, whom the Lord Jesus shall slay with the breath of his mouth, and bring to nought by the manifestation of his coming; And truly, when the Lord comes into your life, He is putting to death that old son of perdition, because there's a little bit of him in all of us, true. And he is in the body; he has to be put to death in the Body so that the body is spotless and blemishless. Notice that the Lord is restrained from coming until the Son of Perdition “become out of the midst” of God's people, the temple. Peter said the lawless are them that walk after the flesh, in the lusts of defilement. There is a defilement in God's temple. The lawless being in the mist of God's temple, they are a defilement. They are a spiritual mark of the beast. An image of the beast in God's temple. They shall, in their destroying, be destroyed. Then what did he call them? Spots and blemishes. Wow, the man of lawlessness, the son of perdition is spots and blemishes in the Body of Christ. Revelling in their deceivings while they feast with you. Yes, they are deceivers. They are in our midst; they're not committing to discipleship. They walk after the flesh, they're not denying their life and they're not taking up their cross, but they feast with us. [2Pe 2:8-13] God is coming for a spotless and blemishless bride. How can it be? We have spots and blemishes. Well, what did it say? …Until he become out of the midst. That's restraining the Lord from coming because in the body there are spots and blemishes. These people in the corporate body are the spots and blemishes. Clearly, the Bible says that in Matthew 13. It says that the Lord's going to gather the tares and bundle them into bundles to burn them, but he's going to gather the righteous into his barn. Listen, a portion of the Antichrist beast is in the midst of the true Temple, and they have to come out. 1Jn 2:18 Little children, it is the last hour: and as ye heard that antichrist cometh, even now have there arisen many antichrists; Notice, they heard the same thing we've heard, that Antichrist cometh, but I want to tell you, even now, there are many antichrists and many of them are in the Body of Christ too, because he's fixing to say that right here, you have heard that Antichrist cometh, and even now have there is many antichrists whereby we know that it is the last hour. And some people argued that probably John didn't really know what the last hour was, but I want to tell you it was the last hour of the covenant that the Jews were being reprobated from who had disobeyed Christ and refused to step over into the faith era. It was the last hour of their covenant. Now we're coming to the last hour of our covenant. The last hour then was a type and a shadow of the last hour now. And what did he say? Listen very carefully. “They” who was they? These many Antichrist. 1Jn 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; They went out from us. Antichrist. We recognize Antichrist as the beast in the world, and that's true. The whole world is Antichrist, according to 1Jn 4:3 and every spirit that confesseth not Jesus is not of God: and this is the spirit of the antichrist, lives in them, is Antichrist. That's what John says. If that be true then the whole world is Antichrist and we know that that's true. But let me point out to you that that body of Antichrist is also in the Temple of God. They are these people who walk after the mind of the flesh and the works of the flesh and have his mark, just as the people of God have the mark of God in the mind and in the forehead. In the mind and in the hand, that is the works of Christ and the mind of Christ. The people of the devil are the same way, “they went out from among us and they were not of us.” Didn't Jesus say, did not choose you, the 12 and one of you is a devil. 19 …for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they all are not of us. Now, why did they have to come out? Because in that day, just as in our day, the Son of Perdition has to come out of the midst because he is that Babylonish temple that's in God's temple that defiled temple, that's in the midst of God's temple. The spots and blemishes that are in the midst of God's people. Now let me read this to you. Some of you probably have never really understood this text in Mat 13:24 Another parable set he before them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man that sowed good seed in his field: 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares also among the wheat, and went away. So we know that there's tares among the wheat. Notice it said, the Kingdom of heaven, not the kingdom of the world. The kingdom of heaven, is likened to a man that sowed good seed and among this good seed was sown tares. You know what that means? Among the Body of Christ there are these tares. 26 But when the blade sprang up and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. Why? How can you tell the difference? Because a tare has a very tiny little fruit, there's very little fruit compared to the great big fruit of the of the wheat. 27 and the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst thou not sow good seed in thy field? Whence then hath it tares. 28 And he said unto them, an enemy had done this. That's right, these people are sowed into the Body of Christ by the enemy. They are not true members of the Body of Christ, but they're hidden in the midst, just like Judas was a son of perdition, a son of destruction, a son that will be destroyed, so to speak. And the servants say unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he saith, Nay; lest haply while ye gather up the tares, ye root up the wheat with them... Now, why do you mean that? Because folks, let me tell you, the wheat needs the tares to come to maturity. We need the sons of perdition to bring us to our cross; that's their job. Jesus knew that. That's why he chose 12 and one of them was the devil. So here's what he says in verse 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather up first the tares,… Now this bothers somebody cause he's talking about gathering up the first the tares. Folks, that's what's going to happen. There is going to be no rapture before the son of perdition is revealed before the falling away. That's what we just read very clearly in the black and white. It's not even deep, you see. …Gather up first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn. Well, that's God's Kingdom. That's God's temple we're talking about here, “gathered up first the tares.” See the mark of the beast in the middle of the tribulation, is to gather up first the tares and bundle them. Birds of a feather flock together. When Judas came out of the midst, guess who he gathered around with? When he came out of the mists, as a matter of fact he gathered with the Pharisees, didn't he? Now when he gives the interpretation of this in verse 40As therefore the tares are gathered up and burned with fire; so shall it be in the end of the world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom… All things wasn't in the original folks. There's no Greek word for things. They shall gather out of his Kingdom all that cause stumbling and them that do iniquity. Do you believe it? Yes, the whole reason for the tribulation and the mark of the beast and these things is so that God gathers together into bundles these people that cause stumbling and do iniquity and he's going to do that first before He gathers the Saints, did you notice? 42 and shall cast them into the furnace of fire. He's bundling them up in order to throw them into the wrath of God. …there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the son in the kingdom of their Father. Notice, He gathers the tares into bundles first, in order to throw them in the fire. But then, because they're bundled together because the birds of a feather have flocked together, suddenly God's people shine forth in the Kingdom of their Father. Why is that? Because now the spots and blemishes are gone. The bride has now become the spotless and blemishless bride. You see, folks, they're leaving our Kingdom. Remember the parable at the beginning? He said, the Kingdom of Heaven is likened to a man that's so good seed in his field. But while men slept, the enemy came and sowed tares in the man's field, the Kingdom of heaven. Look, folks, we're not talking about who flies away first here, it's talking about who's leaving whose kingdom. They are leaving our Kingdom, the spots and blemishes. Not only corporately, but individually are going to be washed away. In your individual temple you've got spots and blemishes too. You know, it's little bits and pieces of the son of perdition in there I suspect. At any rate, he'll come to nought by the manifestation of the coming of Christ in you. And that was 2 Thessalonians says basically. Not just in you individually, but in you the corporate body. Boy, it's neat that things God's hidden in His word, it's just so awesome. You know, he says that they're going to shine forth as the sun. Sun glory they've grown from star glory to moon glory to sun glory. The Bible says if we behold as in a mirror the glory of the Lord will be transformed into that same image, from glory to glory, even as from the Lord's spirit, and Paul explains, these three glories in 1 Corinthians 15. You know what that's saying? That God is going to cleanse his individual bodies in the temple. He's going to cleanse the corporate body of the temple. He's going to cleanse the spots and blemishes that are in His Body so that it is a beautiful, glorious church, complete and ready to serve Him. We're going to know these sons of perdition when we see them. They're going to do the same thing that the first Son of Perditiondid. There will be no reasoning with these people. They don't have the Spirit of God in them to give them a conscience, or at least they won't act that. Jesus was the most righteous man on the face of the earth, obviously. And yet Judas very unreasonably turned against Him, tried to manipulate Him and turn against Him and turned to the harlot and the beast to crucify Him. The harlot of that day, of course, was apostate Judaism and the false prophet was the Sanhedrin, and the beast was the Roman Empire that was ruling over the people of God. Judas used the harlot of that day and used the beast to crucify Jesus. That's exactly what's going to happen today. They're going to deliver up one another and many shall stumble. Many are going to fall away, in which the son of perdition will be revealed, and at that time they will use the harlot of our day, which is not necessarily apostate Judaism, but apostate Christianity, is the harlot you're going to worry about. They're going to use the harlot of our day to crucify the Body of Christ. They're going to use the beast of our day, the revived Roman Empire, the worldwide revived Roman Empire that's coming on the scene right now. They're going to use that to crucify the Body of Christ. I suspect folks that most everybody, every local body will have some of these people; at least one. You know the local body that Jesus chose to have together as a type and a shadow, there was one in the midst. He had a purpose. They have purposes in our day. We generally don't choose to go to our cross without help. God is sending us help. I'm not talking about a physical cross. I'm talking about the cross Jesus said we would have to take up. The Cross of death to self. We're called to die to self. Jesus was as a lamb led to the slaughter. Many times these people will mercilessly persecute us, speak against us, rail about us, lie about us, you know, accuse us to everyone around us. But they're just a bunch of lions, sons of perdition that are there to bring us to our cross. They have a good work. They are bad, demon possessed people, but they have a good work. You know that God works all things together for our good. That has to include these people. They are for our good or He wouldn't permit them. Jesus wouldn't have chose one purposely knowing he was the son of the devil. Oh, he was very religious, let me tell you. Judas went out there and did miracles with the best of them or they would have all suspected him. They didn't suspect him, they even suspected themselves before they suspected him. “Is it I, Lord? Is it I?” See the son of perdition wasn't revealed until the falling away came, and that happened about the middle of the tribulation period. When the mark of the beast is demanded, these people who have no Christian fortitude, who have no power from God in their life will take the mark. Judas was a thief, he was a liar. He proved he had no power of God in his life. These people will take the mark of the beast. They will be doing it for 3 1/2 years if you ask me. The beginning of it will be in the middle, but they will be attempting to put this on everybody and these people because they don't want to face their wilderness, they don't want to face death to self in the wilderness. They're going to do this, they're going to be an abomination that maketh desolate. These spots and blemishes are going to be cleansed out of the body. That evil Babylonish temple that's in the midst of God's temple will be removed. They will be bundled together. They will be their own Babylonish temple and Judas being an apostle and leader in the church. Let me tell you that the Babylonish temple has a bunch of leaders that are just like that. And I can tell you God has a plan for him. He's got what He calls the wrath of God. He will give them time to repent during the Tribulation period that is coming to prove who's who, who's the wheat and who's the tares. But at the end of that time, He will destroy him. God bless you, brethren.
Trials of Faith Prepare Us For Battle (2) (audio) David Eells - 10/22/23 The Desert Shed Anonymous 4/20/23 (David's notes in red) I dreamed that I was given an opportunity to go stay at an Airbnb for a few weeks for free, and I was going to spend that time fasting and focusing 100% on God to get closer to Him. (It is good to fast from the world and the flesh to seek God. An Airbnb represents trusting in the heavenly provision for food and covering.) I wasn't sure where the Airbnb was because someone took care of all the details and paid for it so it was free for me. (This is a spiritual place where Jesus paid for everything and has taken care of every detail of our lives with His life.) I had to go on a small private plane (representing being led into the wilderness through heavenly places in Christ.) to get there, and the plane flew into a desert (wilderness) where there was literally no one else. (It is our individual fellowship with the Lord like a feast of individual tabernacles.) There were barely any trees and the dirt was a bright orange color. (The dirt represents the flesh and its bright orange because of the burning heat of the sun/Son in the fiery trials of the wilderness.) As we flew further out into the barren desert, I started feeling God's presence stronger and stronger; I assume it was because it's more into God's creation and there are less spirits out there. (When we go into the wilderness, that's where the Lord reveals Himself to each of us personally. The desert is where we learn to trust and be dependent on God only. Moses (a type of the Man-child) fled Egypt into the desert and was there 40 years (1st time), which was his tribulation before he was qualified to lead the Israelites through the desert (2nd time) for another 40 years. Jesus fasted for 40 days in the desert where He was tempted by satan, and He spent much time alone in the desert mountains fasting and praying. The apostle Paul received the revelation of Jesus Christ and the Gospel from the Lord while he was alone in Arabia.) As I was looking down, my flesh had slight fear of how strong God's presence was and I knew that the old man was dying just by being here and the Holy Spirit was rising. Pro 9:10 The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom; And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Psa 119:120 My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; And I am afraid of thy judgments. The plane landed in the desert area next to a silver shed. (The silver shed represents our spiritual tabernacle in the wilderness. Silver is the refining and purifying away of the dross (flesh). Pro 17:3 The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold; But Jehovah trieth the hearts. Psa 12:6 The words of Jehovah are pure words; As silver tried in a furnace on the earth, Purified seven times.) There was a small old-looking house not far from the shed that looked abandoned. (The small old, abandoned house represents our old carnal life which we gave up to follow the Lord into our spiritual wilderness.) I got out, and the pilot said he would pick me up in a few weeks, and he went back into the air, and I went and walked around the shed. There was no internet service for reception (no worldly electronic distractions) and no way to get help from man or self-works. The Airbnb was a large open plain shed without a door. (The veil has been torn by what Jesus did at the cross so we can come directly into the presence of our Father in the Holy of Holies.) Inside, it had a table with chairs, (to partake of the Table of the Lord) there was a small room with a door, and inside to the right there was a bed. (to enter the rest) Located outside the shed was an outdoor shower and toilet. (This represents cleansing our soul of the defilements of flesh and spirit; our sanctification. It is done outside because nothing unclean can come into the Holy of Holies.) Although there wasn't much there, I was completely satisfied. (The soul is satisfied and sustained with the Word in the presence of the Lord. Isa 58:11 and Jehovah will guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in dry places, and make strong thy bones; and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.) This is a place in the wilderness with no distractions of the world. (Rev 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that there they may nourish her a thousand two hundred and threescore days. (3 ½ years) I explored the area and found that there was a cliff edge over the ocean and the land was so very high up. (This represents Mt. Zion and the promised land high above the ocean representing the peoples tribes etc..) The temperatures were not as hot as I was expecting but it was still warm with a nice breeze. (When we go willingly into our own wilderness to let the Lord do His refining work in us, the trials are not as hot as they could be if we resist what God wants to do in our sanctification process. 2Co 12:9 And he hath said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.) I spent the time here growing closer to the Lord and staying here was a big help to crucify my flesh spiritually and physically. Saved From Leviathan Marie Kelton 7/10/23 (David's notes in red) During the meeting I had an open vision of a desert place. (The wilderness) I saw a stone or concrete slide that was next to a small body of water. The water was a turquoise color. (Turquoise is a blue-green color and often associated with “waters of the Caribbean.” These waters appear very clear and blue because they are shallow, and there is a lack of Plankton, which are a crucial source of food in the sea. These waters could represent taking a vacation, which the world does. It represents a distraction from the daily grind. But the Body of Christ should stay focused on eating the Word of God and continuing to serve the Lord.) I saw my spirit man get on a slide and slide into the water. When my spirit man went into the water, it was very deep. In the water was a huge, long black creature; I knew it was Leviathan. Leviathan (the serpent) swam around my spirit man, like it was about to attack her. My spirit reached up like she was trying to escape. I then saw the hand of Lord come down and pull my spirit man out of the water and placed her on the land that was on the other side of the body of water. (Psa 18:16-17 He sent from on high, he took me; He drew me out of many waters. 17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, And from them that hated me; for they were too mighty for me. Psa 31:8 And thou hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; Thou hast set my feet in a large place. Psa 94:18 When I said, My foot slippeth; Thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah, held me up.) My spirit man then turned toward the desert with her back toward the body of water. (I knew that meant that I had to continue to walk through the wilderness.) (We should not entertain vacations from the wilderness training grounds for the promised land is where that leads.) I asked the Lord what the body of water was, the Leviathan was in. I heard Him say, "Waters of deception." (These are fleshly appealing luxuries we cannot afford if we want to win the race.) Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with empty words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the sons of disobedience. Col 2:4 This I say, that no one may delude you with persuasiveness of speech. The Lord will destroy the old serpent when He's done tempting us. Psa 74:14 Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces; Thou gavest him to be food to the people inhabiting the wilderness. (Babylon is being plundered to build the Kingdom.) Isa 27:1 In that day Jehovah with his hard and great and strong sword will punish leviathan the swift serpent, and leviathan the crooked serpent; and he will slay the monster that is in the sea.) Light Track Samuel Fire 1/11/23 (David's notes in red) I saw a tall mountain (Mt Zion) from a distance. Then I saw many people making a journey to the top. (Many people start out with us on the Way to holiness and maturity.) However, most of the people took different paths to get there. Some did follow the same parts of another's path but took diversions and added length and time to the journey. (We are to follow Jesus and keep His ways, not turning to the left or the right. When we try to go another way, it takes more time and effort, and if we are diverted we have to start over. The Israelites' journey through the wilderness could have been a very short journey to the Promised Land but sin, rebellion and unbelief made it longer and some died there.) Deu 5:32-33 Ye shall observe to do therefore as Jehovah your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. 33 Ye shall walk in all the way which Jehovah your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess. I then saw who resembled to be the Lord Jesus at the very peak and there was a path He made for them to follow along the mountain. (The Lord leads us up to high places; He is calling many to come and follow Him.) (Isa 30:21 and thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it; when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. Psa 23:1-3 A Psalm of David. Jehovah is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: He guideth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.) Psa 5:8 Lead me, O Jehovah, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; Make thy way straight before my face. Pro 8:20 I walk in the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice; It seemed that each of the people making the trek up the mountain had a map and some ignored it, and some followed as close as possible. (The Word of God (Jesus) is our map. When Jesus called His disciples, He said, “Follow Me” and “I am the way”. Some follow Jesus closely and others ignore what God has said.) Joh 1:1 In the beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life:… (Psa 119:105 NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, And light unto my path. Psa 43:3 Oh send out thy light and thy truth; let them lead me: Let them bring me unto thy holy hill, And to thy tabernacles. Pro 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; And reproofs of instruction are the way of life) It felt that all these people making the journey to the top are brethren with different trials and types of life (And different callings), that's why there were different paths. NENT Eph 1:4 even as he chose us in him before the world's foundation, that we be holy and without blemish before him in love: Jer 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee; I have appointed thee a prophet unto the nations. Then I saw in another vision, individual light rays coming from a lightbulb, illuminating a room. All the light rays travelled outwardly separately and independent of one another and filled the room with the light source. (The source of Light that filled the room is the Lord Jesus, and the room represents each individual who make up the one Body of Christ.) Joh 8:12 Again therefore Jesus spake unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life. (Joh 12:36 While ye have the light, believe on the light, that ye may become sons of light. 2Co 4:6 Seeing it is God, that said, Light shall shine out of darkness, who shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.) NENT Rom 12:4-5 For even as we have many members in one body, but all the members have not the same office: 5 so we, the many, are one body in Christ, and severally members one of another. Then I saw how if the direction of the light rays were to return to the source, the quickest path is to go directly in a straight path. But each ray was never in the same spot as another, and none would reach the source if being diverted or blocked. (Jesus said His words are spirit and life and our born-again spirit returns to the Lord.) (Joh 3:13 And no one hath ascended into heaven, but he that descended out of heaven, even the Son of man, who is in heaven. Eph 4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things. Ecc 12:7 and the dust returneth to the earth as it was, and the spirit returneth unto God who gave it.) Isa 40:3 The voice of one that crieth, Prepare ye in the wilderness the way of Jehovah; make level in the desert a highway for our God. Psa 107:7 He led them also by a straight way, That they might go to a city of habitation. Seeking In Secret Anonymous 12/17/22 (David's notes in red) I heard in prayer and The Lord spoke: He said, “Shut out everything.” (Close off all distractions, the enemy always uses everything he can to distract us from seeking God's presence and to distract us from staying in God's rest.) (Seeking His will through the trials is a test of Faith and devotion to the Word. Just as Job gave acknowledgement and glory to God during his trials. Job 1:8 And Jehovah said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job? for there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and turneth away from evil.) He said, “Prayer closet.” (Dedicate more of your time to God and His Spirit, not the flesh.) (“You have not because you ask not.” Being intimate with God in prayer has eternal rewards. Distractions will try to steal this time with God.) He said, “Have patience.” (Knowing that your prayers will be answered in His perfect time.) Jas 1:3-4 knowing that the proving of your faith worketh patience. 4 And let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing. Rom 5:3-5 And not only so, but we also rejoice in our tribulations: knowing that tribulation worketh stedfastness; 4 and stedfastness, approvedness; and approvedness, hope: 5 and hope putteth not to shame; because the love of God hath been shed abroad in our hearts through the Holy Spirit which was given unto us. (“He that endureth to the end shall be saved.”) He said, “Speak out when you can see the enemy attack, call out to Me.” (Alert the Saints and respond to duty. God sends these tests to cause us to get in line with His Word so the enemy has no advantage.) (There is safety in numbers because some brethren may have overcome some specifics that we have not encountered. It is not only Christ in you, but in your brothers and sisters too.) He said, “Turn up the heat, get into deep, fervent and desperate prayer!” (“The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous man availeth much.” “Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”) He said, “Laugh the enemy to scorn for he does this all the time.” (Calling out the enemy's bluff and stay in the resolve of Jesus and the truth of the Word.) (The majority of trials are enemy lies, or a twisted truth to deceive. Symptoms, curses and afflictions – never last. Only Jesus is the everlasting!) He said, “That test is to turn it all back for what it is.” (Refute and retake the stolen things back from the enemy.) (Act 3:20-21 and that he may send the Christ who hath been appointed for you, even Jesus: 21 whom the heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, whereof God spake by the mouth of his holy prophets that have been from of old.) He said, “In humility give all gratefulness that nothing is done for you or to you, unless I allow it.” (Praise God in all things, praise Him for He is in control, and we can trust Him only.) (Psa 149:6-9 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand; 7 To execute vengeance upon the nations, And punishments upon the peoples; 8 To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute upon them the judgment written: This honor have all his saints. Praise ye Jehovah.) He said, “Seek Me in fear and gladness for everything.” He said, “Bring the life of Christ into the open.” (Reveal the greatest of things for all to experience.) (Joh 10:10 The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.) He said, “Love all and be showing the example of Him.” (God through us to others.) (Rom 13:8 ASV Owe no man anything, save to love one another: for he that loveth his neighbor hath fulfilled the law.) He said, “See that nothing is allowed into Me unless passes the test of being in the image of My Son.” (Nothing of self or evil can ever imitate.) (A final result of our trials is more of Christ revealed. “Christ in you the hope of glory.”) He said, “As you look to Me by the Word and heart, you can see I look through all things.” (There is nothing that can be hidden from God.) (Only the wicked do not believe He sees all and will do anything about it.) He said, “When you see that you need Me in everything and when you are that desperate, you can see Me in others too.” (Everyone is in dire need for more of the Lord Jesus and His salvation.) He said, “Pray in tongues and write down interpretation you get.” (Exercising the gifts to be trained and gain experience.) He said, “Seeking the Lord in servitude and want.” (Nothing for selfish gain) (But to serve the Kingdom.) He said, “Draw close to Him” (Honestly and sincerely prefer The Lord as priority always.) (Talk to Him for He desires our fellowship.) He said, “Fan the flames that burn the traps and attacks.” (Nothing can withhold you when the fire of the Lord burns everything evil. Praise and worship engulfs the evil.) He said, “Add to the fire the fuel of the Word and continue to add each verse in thought as it burns.” (Keep the fire burning with explosive power) He said, “The light shines as the flames burn brighter in the zeal and desire of the Father.” (Love burns so hot, it eliminates all darkness.) (Return us Lord into Your wonderful garden and keep us hedged around and protected from all evil, under Your wings, in Your promises.) The Fiery Trial to Overcome the Flesh David Eells You know, we have to make decisions. Every day we're faced with a decision. If you decide the easy way, which is the flesh way, then you say, “Okay, devil, you can rule over this flesh.” That's what you're really saying. Of course, we can see it across the country, too – people who are so-called Christians rising up against the government and actually being used of the enemy who is going to invade this country. But God said, My power is made perfect in weakness (2Co.12:9). (9) And he hath said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for [my] power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (10) Wherefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, in injuries, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. We need to see how the power of God comes to those who will enter into weakness of self. The commands, many of the principles, but also the commands of God, are to put us into a position of weakness. If you obey the commands of Christ, you will be weak and you'll cease from your works. You will not be able to handle the situation yourself. You will have to trust in God to do it, if you obey His commands. (2Co.13:4) For he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth through the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him through the power of God toward you. Weakness brings the power of God. Weakness brings crucifixion in the flesh, but it also brings the power of God to bring resurrection. Resurrection life is what we've all wanted from God, but many times we won't pay the price for it. We ask God for the fruit of Jesus to live in us, but before you can have the fruit, you have to give up the lust. The two war against one another, they seek to occupy the same territory in your life. They can't both live together. The lust must be crucified in order for the new man to live in you and for the fruit to be borne. Anger and forgiveness can't be in the same place. You can do one or you can do the other, but you won't do both. Christ was crucified through weakness. He obeyed God's word to Him. As a matter of fact, it appears to be a command to Him and He passed on that command to us. To me, it's one the most important commands in all of the Scriptures for those who want to bring forth fruit. (Isa.50:5) The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away backward. (6) I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair; I hid not my face from shame and spitting. (7) For the Lord God will help me; therefore have I not been confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame. You'll recognize this as a prophecy about Jesus. But His ears were open to the Lord's command and His command to Jesus was that He was to give His back to the smiters and His cheeks to them that plucked off the hair. That command has been passed on to us. It wasn't a request; it was a command. (Mat.5:38) Ye have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: (39) but I say unto you, Resist not him that is evil: but whosoever smiteth thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. (40) And if any man would go to law with thee, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. (41) And whosoever shall compel thee to go one mile, go with him two. (42) Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. The reason I say that this is such an important command of Jesus is because of our human nature. The lusts of the flesh rise up against a person who wants to obey these Scriptures. You can imagine in your mind turning the other cheek, either in word or in deed or in action of some kind, and you know what kind of lusts rise up inside of you when you try to do this. There's a war that goes on inside you when you do this. Jesus fought that war. (Gal.5:19) Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are [these:] fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, (20) idolatry, sorcery (from here on you can identify these as having to do with this command), enmities, strife, jealousies, wraths, factions, divisions, parties, (21) envyings (maybe some of these don't apply so much), drunkenness, revelings, and such like; of which I forewarn you, even as I did forewarn you, that they who practice such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. These things must be put to death. You know, the Lord has given us a method to put these works of the flesh to death. He spoke to me one time and He said, “You don't get resurrection life before you get death.” That was at a time I was trying to bring some people into resurrection life and they weren't entering into the death part. If you want fruit, these lusts have to die. They have to die on this side of Heaven. That's the purpose of God. God's grace delivers from sin; it doesn't just cover sin. Yes, it's wonderful that it covers sin, but that's just for the meantime so that you can have fellowship with God until you manifest its full deliverance. Jesus came to do away, to destroy the works of the devil and that's what we're talking about here. Most of these lusts are affected by just one command of Jesus and they're put to death by obedience to just one command of Jesus, and that is, “Resist not him that is evil.” It's one of the most important and most neglected doctrines in all of the Scriptures. This regards bearing our cross of death to self. We are to resist the Devil and to defend the weak. Let's read on. (Gal.5:22) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, (23) meekness, self-control; against such there is no law. (24) And they that are of Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with the passions and the lusts thereof. Well, the Lord said that we had to take up our cross and follow Him as in Matthew 16:24. We just saw that “he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth through the power of God” (2Co.13:4). If we're going to enter into the resurrection life of Jesus in the earth, we have to enter into this death. We have to take up our cross. I don't think many people realize that Jesus always bore a cross. It wasn't just at the end of His life. He bore a cross His whole life by denial of self. He “hath been in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin” (Heb.4:15). And “each man is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed” (Jas.1:14). Jesus was “of the seed of David according to the flesh” (Rom.1:3). I know a lot of people don't believe that, but I'm just quoting what the Bible says. According to the Spirit, He was the Son of God (Romans 1:4), but according to the flesh, He was of the seed of David. You know what? He was tempted. That flesh Jesus had was real flesh. He was a great God because He came down in the likeness of sinful flesh and overcame sin in the flesh (Romans 8:3). But He bore a cross all of His life and that cross was to deny self, to deny the old man to live through Him. He wouldn't permit the lusts of the flesh to speak or to live through Him. And we have to take up our cross and follow Him or we cannot be His disciple. Taking up our cross is to walk as He walked. We probably won't be called upon to bear the physical cross of Jesus, but we're definitely called upon to bear this spiritual cross that He always bore as to the denying of self. The commands of Jesus put you in a position of weakness. If you obey them, your flesh is going to squirm and it's going to writhe and it's going to try to rise up on the inside of you. It's going to tell you, “No, don't believe that doctrine,” but it's just too prevalent, too common in the Scriptures to deny it. Jesus said, “resist not him that is evil” (Mat.5:39). I tell you, your flesh rises up on the inside of you and it says, “No, no, no! Hit back, talk back, do something, get even!” That flesh just doesn't want to die. It's a crucifixion. You can always tell when the flesh is in trouble because it squeals like a stuck pig. If you don't ever go against it, you don't ever hear it squeal, but I can tell you that the commands of Jesus are going to put you at variance with the flesh. They're going to cause the flesh to be seen by you very plainly. It's easy, before you read the Scriptures, to think you're doing pretty well, that everything's alright. Then you start reading the Scriptures and you see commands like this and, if you start to obey them, you'll find out what lives in you. You'll find out what's way down inside of you when it shows its ugly head and when you go against it, that's where the power of God takes over. We want the fruit of the Spirit, but before the fruit of the Spirit comes the crucifixion of the lusts. Jesus taught us. He was an example to us. A lot of people think He was an example so that we wouldn't have to die. No, Jesus didn't die so that we wouldn't have to die. Jesus died so that we could die. I'm talking about dying spiritually, dying to self, not about dying physically, but dying to self. He died to make it possible for us to die. Those who refuse to take up their cross and follow Him, those who refuse to obey His commands, are refusing to be disciples. It doesn't matter that they call themselves Christians. I want to show you that Jesus turned the other cheek, but He did it as an example to us. When Jesus was before Pilate and the Sanhedrin He resisted not the evil. He did turn the other cheek. (Mat 27:12-13 ASV And when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing. 13 Then saith Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?) He had the power to say “No” to the flesh. He had more power than the disciples understood He had because they thought they were going to save Him with the sword. (Mat.26:52) Then saith Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. He said, “Don't you know I could call more than 12 legions of angels (Matthew 26:53)?” Look, Jesus had power they didn't know of to keep from going to the cross. He didn't have to resort to man's arm of the flesh. One angel in the Old Testament killed 185,000 men in 2 Kings 19:35, and Jesus is talking about calling 72,000 angels here. That's power! Christians need to realize that their power is not in the arm of the flesh. Their power is in the Kingdom of Heaven, but that power shouldn't be used when you're going to the cross. That power should be used to fulfill God's Will. In the very next verse after Jesus said, “Don't you know I could call more than 12 legions of angels?” He said, “how then should the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be” (Mat.26:54)? We want the Scriptures to be fulfilled in us, which is the manifestation of Christ; however, they won't be fulfilled, if you refuse to go to your cross. Just as Jesus had a free will and He could have called the 12 legions of angels, we have a free will and we could, in many cases, walk away from our cross. But that doesn't mean we won't be faced with it again. We will be faced with it again and again because God is merciful. And we'll be faced with it until we get it right or just run out of time because we are running out of time. We've been put here to bear fruit and we've been given a certain amount of time to do that. There's a door closing on the other end of this life. My wife saw a vision like that, on a treadmill. The door ahead was closing. We had to run faster and faster in order to get through the door before it closed. The treadmill was imperceptibly picking up speed going in the opposite direction and we had to run faster and faster. That's the way the world is. The world is picking up speed going in the opposite direction, but there's a door closing. We're running a race but, let me say, this is not a race against one another; this is a race against time. There's a door closing. You have to bear fruit or else you'll be called what the Scripture and Jesus called an “unprofitable servant” cast forth into outer darkness (Matthew 25:30). There's no such thing as bearing fruit without the cross. I'm going to point out just a few of Jesus' commands and show you that when you obey them, they put you in a position of weakness. You cannot defend yourself. You cannot hit back. You cannot do any of the things that your flesh wants because, if you do, your flesh will live and it will get stronger. (Rom.8:13) For if ye live after the flesh (in other words, if you walk in submission to the flesh), ye must die; but if by the Spirit ye put to death the deeds of the body, ye shall live. We want the new man to live and there's only one way that can happen – the old man has to die. They live in the same house. The spiritual man was supposed to go into the Promised Land and kill that enemy and live in his house and we are, in one parallel, that promised land. That spiritual man is Christ in us and He's the spiritual man in every one of us Who seeks to take over this vessel. (1Pe.2:18) Servants, [be] in subjection to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. (19) For this is acceptable (the literal translation is actually “grace”), For this is grace, if for conscience toward God a man endureth griefs, suffering wrongfully. Grace? That's right. God sends us through grace down here on this earth. Sometimes we don't look on it as grace, but it's wrongful suffering. He calls it grace. That's the original word there. We have to go through suffering. (Act.14:22) … Through many tribulations we must enter into the kingdom of God. We must go through suffering because the flesh doesn't die without suffering. If you're not suffering, then you're not ceasing from sin. Peter said, He that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin (1Pe.4:1). That's because when you're suffering, when the flesh is suffering – and I'm talking about that entity of the old man in you, the mind of the flesh in you – when that old man is suffering, it means that he's not getting his way. I'm not talking about this physical flesh suffering, you understand. I'm talking about that entity that lives in us that wants to gratify self. If he's not suffering, you're not bearing the cross; you're not obeying the commands of Jesus. So Peter called it “grace” here. (1Pe.2:20) For what glory is it, if, when ye sin, and are buffeted [for it,] ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer [for it,] ye shall take it patiently, this is grace with God. The last thing we want is to do right and to have wrong done to us in return. We want justice. We want our rights. The flesh demands its rights, but the flesh is a dead man. We reckon the old man to be dead unto sin (Romans 6:11) and dead men don't demand rights. Dead men don't have rights. You can slap them on one cheek and they'll turn the other one every time. That's the way Jesus commanded us. If you want that old man to die, then don't feed him. Just don't obey him and he'll die. This is grace with God. (1Pe.2:21) For hereunto were ye called…. We were called to suffer wrongfully, to suffer in what the world would call “wrongfully.” In other words, we're called to suffer when we do right. (1Pe.2:21) For hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that ye should follow his steps: (22) who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: (23) who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, threatened not; but committed [himself] to him that judgeth righteously. But when we are called to defend the flock from wolves we should point out their sin as was done in scripture. In other words, Jesus left judgment, wrath and payback in the hands of God, concerning self. Peter said Jesus left this example to us so that we should follow in His steps. Every day we're going to have an opportunity to do this. There's just no way you could live in this life without having an opportunity to do this. Don't waste your time. Redeem the time (Ephesians 5:16), the Scripture says. This is what we're here for. Suffering is one of God's greatest methods, to put to death your flesh so that Christ can live in you. (1Pe.3:13) And who is he that will harm you, if ye be zealous of that which is good? (14) But even if ye should suffer for righteousness' sake, blessed [are ye:] and fear not their fear, neither be troubled; (15) but sanctify in your hearts Christ as Lord: [being] ready always to give answer to every man that asketh you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, yet with meekness and fear: (16) having a good conscience; that, wherein ye are spoken against, they may be put to shame who revile your good manner of life in Christ. (17) For it is better, if the will of God should so will, that ye suffer for well-doing than for evil-doing. (18) Because Christ also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God; being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit. We can see a spiritual type there in the life of Christ. When he resisted not the evil, he was put to death in the flesh, but he was made alive in the spirit. This is a spiritual type for us because, if we want to be made alive in the spirit, we must be put to death in the flesh. (1Pe.4:14) If ye are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed [are ye;] because the [Spirit] of glory and the Spirit of God resteth upon you. (15) For let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or an evil-doer, or as a meddler in other men's matters: but if [a man suffer] as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God in this name. (17) For the time [is come] for judgment to begin at the house of God: and if [it begin] first at us, what [shall be] the end of them that obey not the gospel of God? (18) And if the righteous is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and sinner appear? (19) Wherefore let them also that suffer according to the will of God (That doesn't fit the prosperity doctrine very well, does it?) commit their souls in well-doing unto a faithful Creator. Commit your soul unto a faithful creator. Jesus obeyed His own command in Matthew 5:39 and He was crucified for it. I can imagine several places where He could have interjected just a little bit of truth and totally turned the situation around, such as when He talked about, “destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up” (Joh.2:19). Of course, he spake of the temple of his body (21), but that's not what was brought out at the trial by the Sanhedrin and I never saw Him even objecting to it, though He knew what He was meaning. He didn't bother to stick up for Himself. There's one person from the Old Testament who really impressed me with his understanding of not resisting him that is evil and that's David. He obeyed this. I've seen probably a half-dozen to a dozen good examples of where David obeyed this doctrine. He seemed to be way ahead of his time in an understanding of what it was that pleased God. He seemed to be almost walking in New Testament revelation in some areas of this resisting not evil and it definitely bore fruit in his soul. (Psa.38:12) They also that seek after my life lay snares [for me,] And they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and me
