The Vision Of The Four Angels
I was at a time in my walk where I was coming to see, and to believe, that there was surely two different manners that the scriptures could be interpreted: the first being the interpretation that is brought forth through the use of man’s understanding, which is nothing more than a vain opinion; but the second interpretation is the truth that the Lord reveals through the spiritual understanding and revelation knowledge that he gives to those who ask of him. I was musing and wondering just how much difference could there really be between the spiritual understanding of God and the natural understanding of man. It was then that the Holy Spirit quickened me to read the story about Samuel, David, and Goliath.
I began reading at the point in time where Saul was king over Israel, but he had just chosen to do those things that pleasing to the people of Israel rather than to do those things which pleased the God of Israel. After Saul had done this wicked thing, the Lord then sent Samuel to say to Saul that which is written in I Samuel 13:13 “You have done foolishly, for you have not kept the commandment of the Lord your God which he com-manded you; for now would have the Lord established your kingdom upon Israel forever. But now your kingdom shall not continue, for the Lord has sought for a man after his own heart, and the Lord has commanded him to be captain over his people, because you have not kept that which the Lord commanded you“. It was at this time that the Lord reminded me that each one of us has also been called to become a “king and a priest” of the Lord; so I knew that it would be a wise thing for me to carefully consider why God was going to take the kingdom away from Saul, and why would the Lord then choose to give it to David? At this point, all that I understood was that Saul feared the people more than he feared God.
The Lord then told Samuel that he had already found the man who the Lord was going to anoint to be next king, and that he desired for Samuel to call for a sacrifice so that Saul would not be suspicious about the true purpose Samuel was to be there. The Lord had told Samuel to invite Jesse, and all of his sons; for it would be from among Jesse’s sons that the Lord would reveal who he had chosen to be the next king over Israel. So Samuel did exactly as the Lord said, calling for a sacrifice and giving Jesse the instruction that he and all of his sons should be there. It was here that the Lord opened the eyes of my understanding to see that Samuel did all that the Lord had asked him to do except one thing, and that was that Samuel examined the sons of Jesse for himself, to see if he could determine who he thought the Lord was going to choose to be the next king.
It was here that the Lord asked me to consider who Samuel was. I said, “Lord, Samuel was a man who you chose from before his birth to be your prophet and your priest over your people Israel. You even had him raised up in your temple so that he could be taught and nurtured in all of your ways, as well as be instructed in all of the laws of Moses. In fact, Lord, I do not think that there is any doubt that Samuel probably knew more about you than any other man who was alive at that time”. Then the Lord opened my under-standing to see that after Samuel had gathered the sons of Jesse together, this man who knew such much about God, did not even wait for the Lord to come and make his announcement, but rather, Samuel chose to go ahead of God, and he announce who he thought the Lord would choose to be next king; and it was Eliab, the eldest son of Jesse. Samuel was so confident that he had made the right decision that he boastfully declared in I Samuel 16:6 “…Surely the Lord’s anointed (Eliab) is before him“. But Samuel was wrong.
Then, in the very next verse, the Lord comes and says to him, “Samuel, do not look on his appearance, nor on the height of his stature, for I have rejected him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart“. I then considered for a moment the times in my own life were I had been so confi-dent in some the decisions that I had so right that I felt like I would have bet my life on it; only to find out later how foolish those decisions really were. I knew that the shame that I had suffered during those times must have in some way been similar to that which Samuel felt at that moment of his correction. in some major decisions that I made, s only to find later that I was not even close. After all, Samuel was the man who the Lord had raised up in his temple, and the man whom the Lord had spoken with since his youth, and the man who knew more about God than anyone living at that time. If he could not rightly discern between he who the Lord rejected from he who the Lord had chosen, then how could any man, using his own natural judgment, be able to rightly discern anything of God?
We all know that Jesus himself said, “For many are called but only a few are chosen“. Who are those whom the Lord will choose? Even though he loves all men so much that he suffered and died for us all, but still there are only going to be a few chosen. Could it be that all those who are called and then rejected are those who are like Eliab, man who had a good countenance and an appearance of righteousness? Jesus even said, “Woe unto scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whited tombs which indeed appear outwardly beautiful, but within you are full of dead bones and all uncleanness (Isa.64:6: “self-righteousness”) Even so, you outwardly appear righteous before men, but within, you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity”. I then realized that if Samuel was deceived by such an appearance, then how much more easy would it be for me to be to not only be deceived by others, but to also deceive myself by my own wisdom; using my own natural wisdom, as Samuel did, to try and discern the spiritual things of God? If there is anything that I want to understand, it is the difference between the called and the chosen; the rejected and the accepted.
I was carefully considering what the Lord was trying to teach me when the Lord then quickened unto me that which is written in I Corinthians 2:11 “For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of man, which is in him? Even so, the things of God does no man know, only the Spirit of God. Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God”. After reading this word, the Lord then said to me, “The only way that it would have been possible for Samuel to have correctly chosen who God was going to anoint as the next king was if he had the gift of the Holy Spirit; for one must have spiritual eyes to see as God sees; and God looks upon the intents and purposes of the hearts of men”. Then the Lord said, “If I had wanted you to play-act being a child of God, then I would have never given to you the gift of the Holy Spirit to correct you and teach you concerning all things that are of God. Only I, the Lord, have the power to open your eyes so that you may see as I see. Only I have the power that enables the veil to be removed from off of your heart and the power to remove the scales from off of your eyes so that you may see and know the intents of the thoughts of your own heart. It is only after I have filled you with the spirit of my wisdom that you will be able to discern between those who appear righteous and those who I see as righteous”, says the Lord. “No man is able to see as I see without being filled with the fullness of my wisdom, my understanding, and my truth; only then shall be able to judge righteously, and not according to appearances”.
It was my turn; for just as Samuel had been humbled in his judgment of men, so also had the Lord just done the same for me. How many times had I, 1000’s, 10,000’s or 100,000’s of times had I judged others according to their appearances, saying within myself, “Surely this is a righteous man”, or “Surely, this is a man will find no favor in the sight of the Lord”. I knew then that I was no different from Samuel, making my judgments of other men, as well as of my own self, according to how things have appeared in my own eyes.
It was then that the Lord again opened my heart to understand more deeply the error that Samuel and I had both made, as well as how I have erred every time that I have judged men; for Jesus himself said in John 7:24 “Do not judge according to appearances but rather judge righteous judgment”. If I had examined the sons of Jesse for myself, then I would have also looked for that man who appeared to have the qualities that a king who should be respected and honored by the people should have. But what were the qualities that God was looking for? It was then that the Spirit of the Lord quickened to me that which Jesus said in Luke 16:15 “You are they who “make yourselves” righteous before men, but God “knows your heart”; for that which is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God”. It was with this word that the Lord made it clear to me that what he said to Samuel was the truth; “God does not see as man sees”; the very qualities that men esteem in each other as well as in themselves, these are the very same qualities that God sees as an abomination; that which is very disgusting in his sight.
Then the Lord quickened unto me that which is written in Proverbs 16:5 “Everyone who is “proud in heart” is an abomination to the Lord“; and then the Lord said to me, “You know that it is written that no abominable thing shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. Those who are proud in heart only like to showcase their own strengths, their own wisdom, their own abilities, and their own works. The proud do such things to satisfy their own desires for vain glory and praise. These are the treasures of all those who are proud in heart. I am seeking for a people whose hearts desire is for me to showcase for them my wonderful works, my strength, my wisdom, my ability, and my power. The proud have no pleasure in such things because those who are proud love their own sufficiency. Do you now perceive that it would have been impossible for Samuel to use any other method to examine the sons of Jesse with other than judging them according to their own abilities, wisdom, reputation, appearance, and strengths?” says the Lord.
After the Lord finished speaking these things unto me, he then quickened unto me that which his written in II Chronicles 16:9 “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect towards him…“. It was with this word that I began to understand more clearly the heart that was pleasing in the sight of God; the humble of heart of those who have no desire to be God of them selves, but who are desirous and content with letting God to be God; letting showcase Himself. I then understood why the apostle Paul found so much favor in the sight of God because of that which is written in II Corinthians 12:9 where the Lord said to Paul, “My grace is sufficient for you; for my strength is made perfect in your weaknesses“. Will the man who is proud of heart ever acknowledge his weaknesses? Who is God able to show himself strong to except those have weaknesses? Then Paul answered saying, “Therefore I will most gladly glory in my weaknesses so that the power of Christ may rest upon me“. It was at this moment that I realized within my own heart, I had never esteemed nor honored any man who showed weakness. Yet Paul was certainly not such a man to hide his, for he also said in I Corinthians 2:3 “And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching were not with the enticing words of man’s wisdom (that which is esteemed in the sight of men), but rather in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that you might know that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men but in the power of God”.
After the Lord finished speaking these things, I just sat there for a time examining myself to see if I really understood what it meant “to have a heart for God”. It was then that the Lord spoke again asking, “When Goliath stood before the armies of Israel, challenging them to send forth the bravest and strongest man in Israel to fight the champion of the Philistines, where was Eliab? Where was Saul? Did of any of the mighty men of Israel use this occasion to stand up against Goliath so that he might showcase his own strength and might?” “No Lord, none”. Then the Lord continued, “Do you believe that it was necessary for me to use a giant of a man to fight against another giant of a man? Do you see that the Philistines chose their champion from those things, which are highly esteemed among men, the height of his stature, the strength of his own physical ability, as well as the intimidation of his physical appearance? Do you think that I cowered in fear at the sight of Goliath?” says the Lord. “Do you think that I was intimidated because of Goliath’s stature? Do you not yet perceive that all that I needed was for one man in Israel to believe on me; one who would allow for me to be God, to showcase my strength and power on his behalf? My eyes found such a man in David, the son of Jesse.
As delighted as I was to find David, a man after my heart, did Jesse see his son that which I saw in David? When Samuel called for the sacrifice and told Jesse to bring all of his sons there, who did Jesse select to stay behind to shepherd the flock? Did not Jesse think that David was so far inferior in stature and in strength to that of his brothers that I would not possibly choose him to be king over Israel? Yes, but I saw the wisdom that was in David’s heart; the wisdom which desires for me to his God; the wisdom which would allow for me to showcase my power, my wisdom, my strength, my creativity, my love, my righteousness, my judgment, and my heart not only for him, but for all of my people. The wisdom that allows for me to be your God in all matters, no matter whether they be small or great. I delight in all those who have this wisdom in their hearts”, says the Lord.
I knew the scriptures testified many times that, “God only knows the heart”; but I had not once even considered that was in the manner that he was revealing to me. I then under- stood that just as God was not fearful or intimidated by the sight of Goliath, so neither was David; for all of the focus of David’s heart was on the power, the strength, and the ability of his heavenly Father rather than upon the size and strength of his adversary Goliath; so much so that this young man stood and said, “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine who should defy the armies of the living God?” Yet, what power would that army have if it had not been for the faith of one young man? Yes, just like David, the mighty men of Israel believed that the Lord, he was there God; they just did not believe that God would show himself strong and mighty on their behalf. Because of this unbelief, all of Israel cowered in fear and dread at the sight of Goliath; all except one. It was then that the Lord quickened unto me that which his written in Matthew 15:8 where Jesus said of the hypocrites, “This people draw near unto me with their mouth, and they honor me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. In vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrine the commandments of men”. I then saw the vanity in any worship that does not allow for God to showcase his divinity, his love, and his power.
Later that night, I was still considering these things when the Lord said to me, “Mitt, who is your champion?” With that one question, It seemed like my heart took on a change that I had never experienced before; it was like I experienced that child-like faith that David had for the first time in my walk. I was as though there was no doubt as to who my champion was going to be when spiritual Goliaths arose in my path; troubles, cares, fears, and any circumstance or situation that was beyond my control. It was then that the Lord quickened to me that which Jesus said in Matthew 18:3 “Truly I say to you that unless you are converted and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven”. I then realized that since the day that the Lord had called me, I had thought if I walked the strait and narrow path that the Lord asked us to walk, then I would grow into a spiritual giant, a man who would be highly esteemed and honored. I had no idea that my walk would go in a direction that was completely the opposite of what a thought, growing and increasing in the humble and meek heart of a child; but a heart that allow for God to be that spiritual giant.
Then later on that same night, I had just gotten in bed, and had only been lying there for just a minute or two when I looked towards the end of my bed and I saw what looked like a white slated fence running between the two bedposts at the foot of my bed. This fence looked like the typical kind of wooden fence that I have seen many times at horse farms; and it even appeared to have a small gate that could swing open like the ones you see at a rodeo. My first thought was, “Is this a dream or is it a vision?”; but then I realized that what I was seeing was actually happening before my eyes, for the next thing that I saw was 4 angels climbing up from the backside of the fence. They each appeared to only be about 3 or 4 feet tall, and they each had the countenance of a 5 or 6 year old child. Until that moment, my eyes had seen any creature, including small children, which had such an innocent countenance and sweet smile.
I was just staring at them in amazement when each one of them lifted up their arms and started pointing towards my chest. They were pointing at me just like a little child would, moving their little hands quickly back and forth. When I realized that they were pointing at my chest, I first thought that maybe there was something on it, like a spider or a bug. So I started furiously slapping my chest, from one side to the other, as fast as I could. I then realized that there were no bugs or spiders on my chest because when I looked back at these little angels, they were all giggling like little children; but they were still pointing their fingers towards my chest. My next thought was that maybe I had some kind of lump or a bump on me, so I started feeling all over my chest to see if I could feel something. When I could not feel anything or see anything, I then looked back and these angels, and they were giggling that much more, and their fingers were moving back and forth even faster than before; it was as if they were little children playing a game of “hot and cold”, and the closer to got to that hidden thing, the more excited they became.
All of sudden, all of these angels reached a state of extreme excitement, and I have never seen any hands moving as quickly back and forth as their hands were, still pointing their fingers at my chest. It was then that I realized that my hand was lying directly over my heart. So I said to them, “Are you trying to show me something about my heart?” Again they reacted just like the little children who are so excited because you have found that which was hidden from you. Then, with smiles on their faces, and without any words being spoken verbally, they began to communicate with me; telepathically is the only way that I know how to describe it. It was real strange at first because since I could not see any of their mouths moving, I was never able to discern which angel was actually speak- ing to me at any given time; but they began by saying; “Yes, Mitt, it is your heart that we are pointing to, for we have been sent to help you understand more clearly those things of the heart that the heavenly Father is looking for; for whatever a man truly believes, he believes it in his heart; and it is those things which a man believes that his heart treasures.
Have you not seen in your own heart that you have made the same mistake in judgment that Samuel made when he chose Eliab. Were you not also ashamed when you saw your own error? Did you not feel as though someone had taken away from you a treasure out of your heart? So was it also with Samuel, seeing that he was so confident in the judgment that he had treasured. Samuel treasured his own judgment because he believed in his heart that his judgment was right. But it was in these times of darkness, under the first covenant, that God winked at such ignorance in men; for it was of such a time that Samuel lived in, times of ignorance where neither the truth of the scriptures, nor the truth about God, and neither the truth concerning the hearts of men was known; for it is as it was written, that all of these things were veiled. Was not the Son of the living God rejected? Were not even James and John ignorant of what the nature of the Spirit that was in them? Were there any who could hear and understand the words that Jesus spoke?
For it was by reason of this ignorance that the heavenly Father sent his only begotten Son as a light of truth in this world of darkness. It was Christ who overcame this fallen world of ignorance, sin, and death. It was Christ who overcame the darkness of Satan’s lies, those words that he crafts to appear as the truth and that seem right in the sight of men. For it was Christ who, after being crucified, dead, and then raised again, appeared in heaven as the Lamb who was slain. For it was in the resurrection, in the time before Jesus descended beneath, that he ascended into heaven to do that which no man in heaven or in the earth had been able to do; remove the seals from off the book. For it was these seals that kept the truth of the scriptures veiled, that which reveals the truth about God, as well the truth about the hearts of men. If Jesus Christ had not prevailed, having won the victory, then there would have been none who had power to deliver men out of this darkness of ignorance. There would have been none who could have heard and understood the truth of the scriptures. There would have been none who could have know the thoughts of his heart with its intents. There would have been none who could have come to know the heavenly Father; and you know that eternal life only belongs to those who “know the Father” (John 17:3). It is the truth of all these things that sets men free from all of the powers of darkness.
So do you now understand that as long as Samuel lived under this first covenant, the it would have been impossible for him to discern how God sees, seeing that under this same covenant, the eyes of the people of God remained blind and their hearts veiled (Deut.29:1-4/II Cor.3:14-17). It was a time where it was not yet possible for Samuel, or for any other prophet or righteous man to see, or to hear, or to the perceive the truth about the hearts of the sons of Jesse; for no man yet knew God. It is this same blindness that God now com-mands all men everywhere to repent; to turn from this darkness of ignorance. For it is by reason of this bondage to the darkness, that Samuel had no choice but measure the sons of Jesse according to things that were seen outwardly; their abilities, their strengths, their works, and their physical appearances. Thus being blind to see the truth of God, Samuel could only believe those things that he saw with his own eyes, which is not able to see the intents and the motives of the heart. Samuel erred when he made his selection of Eliab because he based his decision upon those things which he himself esteemed and honored in men; for in his own eyes, he saw Eliab as the one best measured up to what he thought the qualities of a king should be.
The angels continued speaking saying, “Under the old covenant, on the veiled side of the word where the scriptures are interpreted with man’s understanding, men are held in bondage to their own wisdom; that is, they believe that the truth is that which appears right in their own eyes. It is for this reason that Samuel was confident that his selection of Eliab was the right selection. Yet, it is in this darkness that man will esteem those very things of man which God sees as abominations in his sight; for you know that the word of God testifies of this truth saying, “That which is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God. It is here that you will find the deceitful lies of pride deceiving the hearts of God’s people into believing that they are able to make “self” to appear acceptable and godly in their own eyes; as well as in the sight of all those others who also walk in the darkness. For on the veiled side of the word, the focus of fallen man is on the man, and upon those things which are seen by man: man’s abilities, man’s righteousness, man’s power; man’s laws, man’s strengths, man’s will, man’s works, and man’s glory. It is not so on the unveiled side of the word; for in the light of God’s truth, all of the focus is upon God, and upon those things which are not seen; God’s abilities, God’s strength, God’s wisdom, God’s power, God’s law, God’s will, the works of God, and the glory of God. Was not Jesus himself lightly regarded by men but esteemed to be well pleasing in the sight of God? This is the power of the darkness; for on the veiled side of the word, man is exalted, man is praised, man is honored, and man is esteemed for all those things that are seen by men.
It is not so on the unveiled side of the word, where the heavenly Father only is exalted, and praised, glorified, and honored. The eyes of the heavenly Father go to and fro throughout the earth, examining the hearts of all men to find those who have a heart for him. It is of such a heart that God found in David; a humble heart that yearned for God to show himself strong and mighty on David’s behalf. Do you not know that it is even so now? For has not your heavenly Father called you with the desire to make you a king and a priest also? Do you not know that the heavenly Father is still seeking out those who have a humble heart just as David had; a heart that would gladly allow for God to be the King of kings?
It is on the veiled side of the word that the heart of man is proud; and those who are of such a heart are those who appear as Eliab appeared in Samuel’s eyes, a man who seemed to be self-sufficient. It is this self-sufficient heart that resists and refuses any guidance or help from God; and it is this self-sufficiency that makes the heart of the proud an abomination in the sight of God. Do the self-sufficient put any reliance in God? Yet, in this fallen world of darkness, is not the heart of those who are seemingly appear as the most self-sufficient the heart that is the most admired and most esteemed among men? Do you understand why Samuel chose Eliab? Do you now understand that it is this ignorance that your heavenly Father is commanding all men to repent of, seeing that has given unto the Spirit of his Son Jesus to reveal all truth unto you and to transform your mind?
When the Philistines set their armies in array, and sent forth Goliath as their champion, where were all of the mighty men of Israel; all those who had been esteemed and honored for their own strength and might? Where was Eliab? Where was Saul? Where were any of those who boasted in their own strength and abilities? Where were those who desired glory and praise? Did not the hearts of all of the mighty men of Israel see their own abilities, their own strengths, their own wisdom, and their own power just dissolve away when Goliath appeared before their eyes? Do you yet understand how weak and vain those things are which men esteem and honor? Yet, were not these the same characteristics that which even Samuel thought was right and true? Do you not see that in this world of darkness, the strengths of men are only illusions before your own eyes; illusions that men believe are truth?
It is only of the veiled side of the word, the darkened word of men’s interpretations, where Satan and all of his demons are able to dwell. It is only in the darkness where Satan is able to transform himself into an angel of light and his demons into ministers of righteousness. It is only in the darkness that all such unclean spirits are able to hide themselves in those things that are naturally seen by men, deceiving the hearts of the blind. It is here that the grievous wolves will appear as the sheep who speak those enticing words that seduce the people of God to focus only those things which are esteemed and treasured in the sight of men; man’s own abilities, man’s own wisdom, man’s own strength, man’s own works, and man’s own righteousness, rather than to focus on those things which belong only to the Lord God. In this world of darkness, did David’s own brothers esteem him to have the qualities of a king? Did the Jews esteem Jesus to have the qualities of a king? Did Jesse even consider to bring David along to the sacrifice in which the new king of Israel was to be chosen? Did the Jews ever consider to call Jesus the king of Israel? How much more the King of kings? How great is this darkness of ignorance which honors and esteems men, but has despised and rejected both of these men who the heavenly Father found to be only pleasing and acceptable in his sight?
It is only on this veiled side of the word where Satan is been able to establish his own kingdom; a kingdom where the darkness appears as light; where his lies appear as truth; where man’s works and efforts seem good; where iniquity (self-righteousness) appears as righteousness; where the illusion of life appears as life; and where men’s traditions seem like the laws of God. Though the scriptures declare that no flesh shall glory in the sight of God? Still, on this veiled side of the word, Satan’s ministers are able to entice men those who are deceived into doing those very works; the works that the hypocrite does to be seen pleasing in the sight of men. Did not God choose to take Saul’s kingdom away from him for doing this very thing? The entire world is under the power of darkness, the power that deceives men into believing that God is pleased with that which they make of themselves, putting forth their best effort. These are they who profess to be the works of God’s hands, but on the contrary, they are the works of their own hands. Every man thinks that this is what God finds as pleasing and acceptable.
Again, take good heed not to walk according to sight, doing those things to be seen of men: the goodness of man; the righteousness of man; the wisdom of man; and the glory and praise of man. It is here that Satan ministers to the beauty of the outward appearance of hypocrisy (play-acting), as though it was the doctrine of God and the garment of godliness. Satan only ministers to the laws, the works, the rules, the appearances, and the efforts of men, all those things that are esteemed in the sight of the ignorant. Those who walk by sight are they who deny the Christ who said, “Without me, you can do nothing to please my heavenly Father. Are you able to understand how Satan uses appearances to deceive the hearts of the children of God, seeing that he is able to transform himself into outward appearance that men not only esteem but also desire to have ? For it is only on the veiled side of the word that men’s judgments, fair speeches, self-righteous works, smooth words, good deeds, religious traditions, the glory of man, and the outward appearances are able to give the illusion that one is godly. But this is only a perception, an illusion whereby the hypocrite is esteemed and honored. This illusion only exists on the veiled side of the word, an illusion where hypocrisy is esteemed as godliness, and the lies of the hypocrite are believed on as the righteous truth.
Do you now understand why the heavenly Father corrected his servant Samuel for using his own judgment to select Eliab as the next king over Israel? Are you now able to also perceive that when the heavenly Father examined the sons of Jesse, he was looking for none of those things that Samuel was looking for? Are you now beginning to see that there is no likeness between the understanding of man and the spiritual understanding that is given from above? Do you see now understand that when use their own understanding to judge, then it is men who are judged, but when men receive the spiritual understanding that comes only from above, then it is spirits that are judged? Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah who is the spiritual understanding, that spiritual wisdom, and that revelation knowledge of the truth that unveils the word of God to set free all of the children of God from their bondage to the darkness.
On the veiled side of the word, Satan has deceived men into believing that they are their own champions, and that they have no need for God in their daily lives.These are they who when the troubles and worries of this appear, they only rely on “self” to find the solution to their troubles, as well as for their own strength. Though they praise God with their lips and honor him with their mouths, still their hearts are far from him, not even once thinking to their heavenly Father the opportunity to show himself strong and mighty on their behalf. Still, these are they who do not repent of their sins of unbelief, but rather they try to hide their weaknesses and faults behind the cloak of hypocrisy (Jude 5). These are they who play-act, pretending to have control over those situations which they really have no control over; just as the mighty men of Israel appeared to have; that is, until Goliath appeared. This is the power of Satan, the father of all lies, the lies that give off the perception that men are strong and mighty, able through their own sufficiency to be the champions of their own life.
Many who are called by the name of the Lord shall remain on the veiled side of the word, having an affection for those things that are esteemed and exalted by men. These are they who have chosen to believe those things that are seen rather than to seek from above those things that are not seen. These are they who are confident that they are righteous, yet when the Goliath’s of this life appear, those events which occur which are common to all men such as illnesses, or worries about tomorrow, or depression, or false accusations, or financial problems, or loneliness, or family problems, or bitterness, or death, or any other temptation that goes beyond their control, they will they are powerless to help themselves, they also will find themselves with the same heart that the mighty men of Israel found when Goliath appeared; hearts filled with fear and dread rather than the peace and a strong confidence in the Lord like that heart which the Lord found in David.
Whose religion will serve them best in time of need; those who’s trust in traditions and doctrines, or those whose trust is in the Lord? Those who walk in their own power or those whose faith is in God, knowing that he is always willing to show his power and himself mighty and strong on behalf of those who call upon him? These are they who the Lord has given rest and freedom from their anxieties, their fears and dreads, from the judgments of other men, from arguments and strife, as well as from all their troubles, cares, and worries. For these are they who dwell on the unveiled side of the word, whose hearts and minds have been freed from all things which work sin and death, and they walk in that abundant life which the Lord Jesus Christ promised to those who would seek and ask for it. Yet, these are also those who do not seemingly appear not to have any strength of themselves; and seeing that they have nothing to boast of themselves, they are not esteemed or praised, but rather lightly regarded by other men.
It is the veiled side of the word that many believe just as the demons believe, that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. It is on the unveiled side of the word that many believe that Jesus shed his blood for their sins. But it is also on this veiled side of the word that many will remain faithless to believe that Jesus is there to perform anything for them; and it was Jesus who said, “Without me, you can do nothing”. Now consider this, did not the apostle Paul also say, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Was not Paul a man who the eyes of the Lord found, a man who was willing to let the Lord show himself strong on his behalf? Who unveiled Paul’s eyes to know this? In Paul, the Lord found a heart like David had, the heart of a child; a heart that looked to God to provide, that which is sufficient. The Lord already knew who had a heart from him, for the found in David that which he did not find in any other heart in Israel; a heart that was willing to let God be his champion; a heart that desired to let God show himself mighty and strong. The Lord God found in David a heart that was willing to let God supply for him that which was necessary for the king of Israel to have; a man who loved the Lord his God with all his heart, with all of his mind, and with all of his soul. It was God that David glorified and praised when he slew Goliath; for David knew. God knew that David had a heart that would allow always remain humble before God, allowing for God to rule sovereign over his people Israel. On the unveiled side of the word, you will only find those who have been humbled, who’s hearts have been converted into the heart of a child; a heart that is perfect before the Father in trust, in belief, in love, in loyalty, and in faith because they presented themselves before their heavenly Father, allowing him to create in them this new heart.
The heart of the child sees many Goliath’s arise in its paths as it walks through this fallen world of darkness, circumstances and situations that seem impossible to overcome. But the hearts of the humble are neither fearful nor troubled, just as David was neither fearful nor troubled in his heart when he confronted Goliath. The heart of the child is the heart that has chosen for God to be its champion, and it looks no where but from above for its help to come; knowing that the Lord takes great pleasure in fighting for those who only look to him for their sufficiency and strength. There are no adversaries, no circumstances, no enemies, no powers, no fleshy lusts, no situations, or any spirits that God will not arise to overthrow on behalf of those whose hearts are perfect towards him in humility and faith. These are they who the Lord God will make to be his kings and priests.
So do you now see how those who walked according to the things that are seen, their hearts were paralyzed with fear at the sight of Goliath; the same Goliath that David slew with one small stone because the Lord was with him. Where was the fear and dread in David as he prepared to go out to battle against the champion of the Philistines? If then there had not been one in Israel who had not the heart of a child, looking for the Lord to show himself strong and mighty, then where would the victory have then come from? Did not the child like faith of David keep all of Israel from becoming slaves to the uncircumcised Philistines? Who then is mightier; he who is 8′ tall who has the physical strength of Goliath, or he that has the humble heart of faith before the Almighty God? Would not the heavenly Father have sent 144,000 angels to fight on Jesus behalf on the night he was betrayed if it had been necessary?
On the unveiled side of the word is the light of God’s truth, a continual flowing river of the blessings of abundant life; God’s power, God’s wisdom, God’s help, God’s faithfulness, God’s work, God’s understanding, God’s strength, God’s gifts, God’s peace, and the love of God. All of these blessings come to those who walk on the unveiled side of the word, because these are they who never focus on their own abilities and sufficiency but rather, they believe that all things are possible with God. These are they who put no limitations on the manner that God desires to bless them or on the love that God desires to show them. It is these who dwell on the unveiled side of the word that continually see God do those things which are exceedingly abundant above all that which they are able to think or to ask for. It is these truths that the Lord Jesus unveils that sets men free from all their bondage to the powers of the darkness. Those who remain on the veiled side of the word, they are remain in the darkness, seeing nothing but impossibility when their own strengths and powers are dissolved when they confront the Goliaths that appear in their daily lives.
The heart that is unveiled, it is the heart of those who have seen and know their God. These are they who are strong in faith, believing that the Father is always there for them, to fight all of their battles, to deliver them from all their fears, their unbelief as well as all of their doubts. These are they who have allowed for their Lord to destroy all of the pride that dwelt within them. These have that heart of the child that believes, without wavering, that their Father shall supply all of their lack and provide all of their needs when they ask of him. The heart of his children only desire for their heavenly Father to teach them. The heart of the child knows that they are the object of all of their heavenly Father’s affection. The heart of the child is perfect in faith, remaining still while their heavenly Father finishes the work that he has started in him. He who has the heart of the child is he who continually walks and communicates with his heavenly Father, never doubting his Father’s faithfulness and love. Just like David, they who are of such a heart delight in letting their heavenly Father be their Lord and God, knowing that all things will work together because of their love for him.
Now hear Mitt, do you now understand why all of the mighty men of Israel failed miserably when they were confronted by Goliath? Do you now understand why God chose David to be king over his people Israel; a king who had a heart for God, a heart that only had one desire, the desire that only the God of Israel should be the champion of his people? Mitt, who do you desire to be your champion? Who do you cast your cares and troubles on? Whose glory are you seeking for? Who do you desire to explain and teach you? Who do you desire to work in your heart? Is the treasure of your heart he who dwells in heaven, or is the treasure of your heart those things which are seen on the earth? Who is champion today, Mitt. Who do you desire to be your champion tomorrow? It was then that these four angels starting waving goodbye as they, as well as the little white fence began to dis-appear from my sight. “Your heart, Mitt, it is your heart? For it is with your heart that a man believes on the Lord. Prove his love, Mitt. Give him your heart”.
I lay there stunned in amazement at those things that had been spoken to me. I was so overwhelmed in that moment that I did not even try to wake my wife to tell her what I had seen and what I had been told. The unveiled word, I knew that was what John was speaking of when he said in I John 1:1 “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the “Word of Life”. For the life was manifested (unveiled), and we have seen it, and bear witness, and show unto that eternal life, which is with the Father, and we manifested unto us. That which we have seen and heard, we declare unto you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly, our fellowship is with the Father, and with his son Jesus Christ“. It is an awesome fellowship when one chooses to let God be the champion of his life; for even this is not man’s doings, but the Lord’s.
The next morning, as I was writing all those things which had been spoken to me, the Holy Spirit then quickened to me that which Paul said in II Corinthians 10:12 “For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves; for they measuring themselves among themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise and without understanding“. The first thing that the Spirit opened my heart to see was that truly, Samuel did not have the gifts of the Spirit avail-unto him; the gifts of spiritual wisdom and understanding. For Samuel did that very thing which Paul said that he dared not to do: compare and measure ourselves and each other amongst ourselves, as Samuel did when he chose Eliab. The second thing that the Spirit of the Lord opened my heart to comprehend was that when a man measures himself against the lives of other men, he is only measuring his own flesh against the flesh of others; those outward characteristics that are seen my men, the very things which deceive a man into believing that he himself is more righteous; or more wise; or more stronger; or more zealous; or more esteemed than others, but only because he is comparing fleshy abilities against fleshy abilities, and not against the spiritual abilities of God; who has the ability to do all things which are impossible for man to do.
Then, while I was meditating on all of these things, the Lord spoke to me and said, “I do not want you to ever measure yourself or compare yourself with those who exalt themselves and boast of themselves, lest you also be tempted to walk in the same illusion of lies. For these are they who walk according to appearances, giving the perception that they have strength, righteousness, and power of them selves. All they who walk in such a manner have deceived themselves, and they have turned from worshipping and serving me, and now worship and serve “self”. If you do this thing, then you will make your own self to be an image that also relies on it’s own strength, and wisdom, and power. If you allow for these things to take power over you, then you will be compelled to continually prove yourself before other men and you will walk in your own strength. Then when troubles, fears, worries, the cares of this life arise, the Goliath’s of this life, you will no longer look for me to be your champion”, says the Lord. “I love all of those who desire for me to be their champion and their Lord. Know this also, if any man who dwells on the unveiled side of the word will turn to me, desiring for me to be his champion, then I will hear from heaven, and my eyes will find him, and I will also show myself strong and mighty on his behalf. This is the repentance that I desire”, says the Lord.
Thank you Lord; for since they day, I only have one champion; but I realized that day, that if I was going to let the Lord be my champion, then it was going to be necessary for me to give up any outward appearance of righteousness that I may have walked in, as well as ceasing from performing any of those mighty deeds whereby I myself might have something to boast of or to glory in. But that was just fine with me. For as long as I could boast in the Lord’s power, the Lord’s wisdom, the works of the Lord, the Lord’s strength, and all of the mighty things that he desires to perform for those who have that humble heart of a child, then I am more than willing to live all of eternity being the object of God’s affection through Jesus Christ.
Recently the Lord spoke to me and said, “I am about to gather my church together, all those who have made me their champion; whose hearts are perfect towards me. I will make them my kings and raise them up to my priests; my priesthood of believers who shall walk in the order of Melchisedec. These are they who do nothing but believe on me to do this thing; knowing that it shall not be by the power of their own might, but by my Spirit, which is my power”, says the Lord. “Neither Goliath, nor the shadows of death, nor the gates of hell, nor Satan himself shall prevail against my church, because my church has me for its champion.
VISION OF THE TWO THEATERS
When this vision began, I found myself as though I was an usher in a theater. I was standing on the side of the theater, in that area between the stage and the audience. From where I was standing, I could not only see the seating area and the stage, but I could also see everything that was taking place backstage. When this vision started, all of my focus was on the backstage area, and it was not only extreme- ly huge, but it was also packed with people. Everyone was hurriedly trying to get ready, for the show was about to begin. I saw that all these people who were backstage were all members of Christ’s church. I was told that all of these people had been preparing to go on stage to act out everything they believed to be right. Need- less to say, there was much tension and anxiety among them.
Suddenly someone called out, “The Lord is coming!”. From the reaction of all those who were backstage, I realized that none of them had been expecting Jesus Himself to come to this performance. The thing that surprised me about this announcement was that none of these people seemed to be expecting Jesus to come, but neither did any of them seem to have any desire at all for Him to be there. Much to my surprise, all of these people backstage were all walking around complaining about His coming, and each one was murmuring the same words, saying, “I have got my rights! I got my rights!” At first, I was greatly bewildered, trying to comprehend why these people of God would act in such a manner concerning the Lord’s coming. I then realized that this stage was nothing but a platform for each one of these people to act out his own beliefs, as well as his own judgments of others, and his own opinions of how others should live their lives as Christians.
Suddenly all of the lights in the theater were turned completely off; that is, except for the lights that shined on the stage area, as well as the lights that were back-stage. I realized that I had not even had a chance to observe just how big this theater really was. I assumed that if the backstage and stage area were any indication of how big the sitting area was, then it must at least number in the thousands. It was so dark that I could not see anyone who was sitting in the arena. This really disappointed me because I did not know how Jesus was going to come, and I wanted to be sure that I saw Him when He got there. Regardless of the size of the sitting arena, I assumed that the theater, at the very least, was close to a sell out, if not a sell-out, because of the enormity of the production and the massive number of people who were partaking in it. Then the curtain opened for the first act, and the first thing that I noticed was that the entire stage had been covered in beach sand.
I do not know how to explain how this happened, but for the opening act, all of the people who were backstage, which certainly numbered in the thousands, were all able to come out on stage. I noticed that each one was carrying a banner that said, “Christian” All those who were on stage began to greet each other, hug each other, and tell each other that they loved them.
Then I saw this wolf walk up on stage, and I could not believe how poorly disguised he was as one of the brethren He just moved around on the stage also greeting and hugging all the brethren, and telling them how much he loved them. All of sudden this wolf began to preach, declaring how he thought God ought to be worshipped. Many of the people who were there said that they did not believe that was the right way that God wanted to be worshipped, so they did not pay any more attention to him. But there was a portion of the people who agreed with what he said. They announced that they believed that this man truly knew the “right” way in which God desired to be worshipped, and so they followed the wolf. When they had separated themselves into their own little group, the wolf then drew a line in the sand that completely compassed their little group.
I observed another wolf, with a slightly different, but still poor disguise, come up on the stage. I watched him do almost exactly the same thing as the first wolf did; greeting, hugging, and speaking smooth words until he seemed to be accepted by some. After a short time, he also began to declare what he believed was the “right” manner in which God should be worshipped. Again, many disagreed that his way the “right” way, so they did not pay any attention at all unto him. But just like the first wolf, there was a portion of the people who did believe that the words that he had spoken were truth. They followed after him, surely thinking that they were walking in the “right” way. After they had separated themselves into their own group, the wolf then drew a line in the sand that completely compassed everyone who was in that group.
I then observed a third wolf, and again wearing the same poor excuse for a costume , he came up on stage, and did exactly as the first two wolves had done, with the same results. Then there was a fourth, a fifth, as well as several more wolves who had all disguised themselves as saints on stage, and imitated all that the saints had done. This continued until all of the people who were on stage had been divided into different groups; and I noticed that each group had drawn a line in the sand that compassed only their group. I also observed that no longer were any of these people carrying banners over them which read, “Christian”, but rather they were now carrying banners over them that identified the group to which they belonged. This was also meant to identify the right manner in which they believed God ought to be worshipped.
I saw banners that covered about every denomination that I had ever heard of, and then some that I had not even heard of. I observed that all of these people still seemed to be friendly towards each; that is, until someone said some-thing or did something that crossed the line (the line drawn in the sand), that is, that disagreed with that which they believed to be right. Then they treated each other as though the other group did not even exist. I observed that when one of these groups spoke or seemed to acknowledge the other group, it was only to speak evil of them and to make accusations against what they believed. About the only thing that they could agree on was to say, “At least we serve the same God; and we agree to disagree; and we believe that it is our “right” for us to do so”.
As the curtain was coming down on this act, I heard the Spirit of the Lord speak to me that which is written in I Corinthians 1:10 “Brethren, I beseech you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Christian), that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment”. Then the Spirit of the Lord also said, “This is what is right in the sight of the Lord”. Seeing that the theater was so dark I could not see anyone in the audience, I was anxiously waiting to see what manner of response was going to come from the audience; but there was none. There was no cheering nor booing. In fact, it was so quiet that I, as well as all those who had been up on stage, felt strange to hear nothing but silence.
Then, after a few moments, the curtain arose, and the second act began. This time the stage was all decorated to look like a carnival or a fair, except there were no rides, just many different side-show booths. At the first booth I saw a man barking out to the other people who were in this act. He was trying to entice them into playing a game entitled “Three Steps to a Better Marriage”. This barker seemed to be so confident of what he was trying to sell, that guaranteed that if anyone played this game his way, which he promised was the “right way” that this game should be played, they would surely see immediate improvement in their marriage.
I saw at the booth next to the first one, a game that was called, “Five Easy Ways to Financial Success.” The barker at this booth was backing up each one of these five ways with a bible verse, which seemingly ensured that anyone who played this game would be successful.
At the next booth, was a game that was en- titled, “Prosper and Gain Favor and Grace with God Through the Ten Commandments”; and this hawker was even dressed up as though he was imitating Moses.
The next booth that I came to was called “The Blame Game.” Here I saw people walk up to the barker of this game, and say such things as, “Well, I did not seek the Lord because I just did not have any time to seek Him”. Then this barker stamped this man’s hand with a rubber stamp that read, “APPROVED: Self-justified”.
Then another person walked up and said, “Well, I did not ask the Lord to help me because I believe that I am able to help myself; that I have no need for the Lord”. Again, the barker took the same stamp “APPROVED: Self–justified”, and stamped his hand with it.
The next person that came up said, “I did not cast any of my cares upon the Lord because I did not have any belief that the Lord really loved me enough to take care of me.” Bam! APPROV- ED: Self-justified”.
The next man said, “I know that I have followed after false doctrines and religious traditions, but I only did so because everyone in my family also did the same.” Again, Bam! “APPROVED; Self-justified” was stamped on his hand also.
The next guy said, “I know that I should have forgiven this man, and not have slandered him, but he really offended me and hurt my feelings. I feel that I am just in hurting him also.” Again the barker stamped “APPROVED: Self-justified”.
The next man said, “I would have drawn near to the Lord, but I was fearful and afraid that the Lord might not draw near to me in return.” Again, “APPROVED: Self-justified”.
Another man stepped forth and said, “I have not loved my brethren because my brethren have not loved me”. Bam! “APPROVED: Self-just- ified”.
The line of people at this game was always very long, for it appeared as though every- one who played this game always left with a smile on his face, as though his own self-justifications had freed him from the guilt of his sins or slothfulness. But then the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me and reminded me of that which is written in Romans 4:5 “But to him who works not, but believes on him that justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteous- ness”.
The next booth that I came to was a game called, “The Path to a Wonderful Life is to Live Life the Right Way; and the Right Way is the Way That I Tell You, by John Doe. I was observing that all those who were playing this game, seemed to be able to win a victory or two. It was as though the hawker of this game had allowed them to, so that he could get them just where he wanted them; where he could entice them to continue playing this game until they were so confident that they had the victory, and were willing to risk everything they had. Of course, every one there continued on playing, and when all was said and done, they had not only lost all that they had previously won, but they had also lost all which they had before they starting playing the game.
The next booth I saw was like a game that I first played at the fair when I was a kid; a game where you paid a dollar and got to throw two softballs in your attempt to knock over six milk bottles that had been stacked upon each other. The reason that I thought this was a similar game to this game was because I saw all of these stacks of balls placed on a counter at the front of the booth, just as they had done with this other game.
When I began examining this game to see if it was indeed the same game, I saw a man come out and stand in the middle of the back of the booth, facing towards the front of the booth. Then the hawker began to yell out, “This man has been accused and judged to be a child molester,” and without him saying another word, it seemed like everyone then stepped forward, picked up some balls, and began throwing them as hard as they could at this man. I immediately discerned from the noise that these balls were making as they hit the man that they were not softballs at all, but rather stones that appeared to look like softballs.
After all had finished throwing their stones at this man, he was then dragged out and another man was brought in who stood in the same place as the other man had. Then the barker began to yell out that if there was anyone there who had been offended at all by this man, whether by any word that this man had spoken previously, or because his appearance did not meet their approval, or because he had weaknesses and sins, then come forth and take your best shot at him. After this man was also dragged out of the booth, another man was brought in; and the barker began to accuse this man for the beer that he drank and the cigarettes that he smoked, and immediately many people eagerly stepped for-ward to throw stones at him. I saw another person brought forth and stoned because he ate fried foods!
I watched as a young girl was brought forth, accused and then stoned for the fashionable clothes she chose to wear. Another man was accused and stoned for being gay; another man was accused and stoned for being of this world; another was stoned for being in the wrong political party; another was stoned for not agreeing with the traditions of others; another was accused and stoned for his religion, another for his race, and another for his nationality. And then there was the man who was accused and stoned for rooting for the wrong team. Then there was the teenage boy who was stoned for not living up to his parent’s expectations. There was a man who was accused and stoned for making a bad decision, and many others were accused and stoned for just making a mistake.
There was a teenage girl there that was accused and stoned for not following her parent’s instructions. And of course, there was a young woman there who had been accused and stoned for committing adultery. But the stoning that aroused my curiosity the most was the one about a man who had been stoned many times before for the same offence. But evidently the barker must have gotten great pleasure out of seeing this man suffer for his sin, so he had him brought back out, and he was stoned all over again.
As I continued to watch all of these stonings take place, I suddenly realized that everyone who was there throwing stones, as well as all those who were just standing around, all appeared to have the same bruises on their own bodies as all those who had just been stoned. Some of their bruises appeared to be so faded it was if they were almost healed, but somehow I felt as though none of these bruises would ever be completely healed. Then there were also bruises on everyone that were so fresh that it appeared as though they had been stoned in the past hour or so. Of all the barkers that I had seen in this act, it was without a doubt this barker who was the best I had seen. He was able to get everyone to participate in a game many times over in which they themselves had also been hurt many times over.
I saw that every time one of the participants hit the person at whom he was throwing, the same barker would walk over and give them a piece of paper that was entitled “Official Certificate.” On this certificate was written, “This certificate is your official certification that gives you righteous justification and excuse to judge, or to accuse, or to speak evil, or to condemn, or to find fault with, or to murder, or to slander, or throw stones at all those who have offended you, or defrauded you, or hurt you, or that have sinned against you in any manner.” Of all the booths that I saw displayed in this act, this game, by far, seemed to be the one that people most enjoyed playing; seeing that it is the favorite sport of the self-righteous.
As the curtain began to fall on this act, I was wondering who this barker was that could so easily deceive the people of God into participa- ting in a game in which every time they played, they were only condemning themselves. How could this barker so easily entice these so called Christians to play a game where they so willingly and eagerly desired to inflict such pain on those for whom Jesus Christ came into this world to save, having suffered and died for all men. The Spirit of the Lord spoke to me, “It is just a sport for Satan to kill, and to steal, and to destroy the lives of all of the saints. It is also only a sport for those who have been deceived by him to inflict the same pain on those around them”.
Then the Spirit of the Lord said, “Truly, everyone who has judged without mercy is also going to be judged without mercy; seeing that God is going to judge them with the same judgment that they have measured and judged others by.” As the curtain came down, again I neither heard any cheering or booing; just an eerie silence that seemed to swallow up the entire theater.
When the curtain rose for the next act, I saw several different groups of people who were sitting at round tables, and each person had a Bible opened in front of him. After I had listened for a moment, I realized that a different topic from the scriptures was being discussed at each table. I focused my attention on the group that was sitting closest to me, and I heard that they were discussing the doctrine of “once saved always saved”. I listened as each person shared his own opinion of what he believed to be the “right” interpretation. Each person would use the scriptures to try to back up what they believed.
As soon as someone would hear an inter- pretation that did not completed agree with what they believed, they would interrupt the person who was sharing to express their disagreement. Everyone there seemed very confident that the opinion that he believed was right because he was able to take a verse of scripture, apply his own understanding to it, and bring forth that which he was sure was the truth. It was not long before much strife, contention, and arguing broke out at this table, seeing that everyone seemed willing to defend to the death that which they believed to be right. I noticed that everyone at this table was talking at the same time; and this made me realize that there was not one person in this group who really desired to learn the truth of this matter. No one had any intention but to defend what they believed to be right.
I focused my attention on the other groups, and heard one discussion taking place about the rapture; another group was discussing tithing; another group was discussing speaking in tongues. But all of the groups had become just like the first group. Each person was using the scriptures to back up the interpretation he believed to be the “right interpretation”. By this time, there seemed to hardly be any agreement among any of these groups, only arguing and strife. Every time someone would use a scripture to back up his own “righteous” opinion, then you could see others already flipping through the scriptures to back up their own interpretation. Then suddenly, the curtain went down leaving everyone on stage still arguing and defending their own opinions and interpretations. Still, there was not one peep of noise that could be heard coming from the audience: no cheers, nor jeers. Only silence.
After a few moments, the curtains rose for the next act, and the first thing that I noticed was what looked like a podium right in the middle of the stage. It stood about eight feet off the floor. One had to climb a small set of stairs just to stand at it. Again, the rest of the stage was packed with people. As I was trying to figure out the purpose of this podium, I watched as a man walked up the steps, stood at the podium, and then proceeded to declare all of the righteous works that he had done. When he was finished, another came to the podium who then began to boast about how often he prayed and fasted, as well as how much money he gave to his church. Then a woman came to the podium who spoke of her involvement in a soup kitchen, as well as the role that she thought that women should take in the church. Then another man came up who spoke in detail about the importance that tradition had in his church.
The first thing that I became aware of while listening to these people was that they were all speaking of those things which were precious and dear to their own hearts. The second thing that I noticed was that no one else there really seemed to care at all what these people esteemed to be the treasures that they lived their entire lives by; for while they were speaking, all the rest who were on stage seemed to be engaged in small chit chat with those around them.
I continued to listen as person after person came to the podium, all declaring that which they believed was the right way for a Christian to live. There was one man who came to the podium who, before he spoke the first word, seemed to roll out a laminated scroll that contained nothing but documents that reached from the top of the podium to the floor It contained his college diploma, two seminary degrees, several counseling certificates, as well as certificates from every one-day seminar that he had ever attended. He did this in his attempt to validate himself before the others as though he was the one there who was best qualified to teach how others should live a Christian life.
After him came a man who tried to preach his view of the place that he felt the church should have in society. Again, not one person on stage seemed to be listening, as all seemed to be still engaged in small conversations around the stage. After that man left, a woman took her place at the podium, and began to exalt herself by com- paring herself with the Proverbs 31 woman, not even realizing that Proverbs 31 is not even speaking of a fleshy woman. Still, no one paid any attention to her. There was a man who got up and boasted of his religious doctrine, calling it his old time religion. There was another man who boasted of how many people he had won to Christ; and another boasted of how big his church was, and yet another boasted of how well his church was hooked into the most modern technology. The people kept parading to the podium for quite some time, with each one boasting of their own goodness, or the strength of their own will-power and determination, or their own intelligence, or their own righteous works.
To be honest with you, I was saddened to see these people speaking of those things which they valued the most. The truth was that there was no one else that really cared about anything that was being spoken.. Everyone there seemed to be so enamored with self that they could not hear anything that did not seem to be beneficial to self. It was almost as if the person who came to the podium did not even exist in the eyes of the others who were on stage. When the curtain went down on that act, again there was not any applause or jeering; only a silence that suggested that all those who were in the audience cared no more for what they had heard than those others who were on stage.
It was then that the Spirit of the Lord spoke two words to me.. The first word was Psalm 39:5 “…Truly, every man at his best state is altogether vanity (worthless; vain). I realized the truth of all I had just seen and witnessed in this act, as well as all of the other acts; that man at his best state, devoting himself to any doctrine or counsel whereby he believes that he can do or say anything right of himself, is of no worth at all. Yet, it is of these very things that the people of God gather into the treasures of their heart by which to live their lives. Even then, they only have great value to “self”, because everyone else is also absorbed in “self”; and self-righteous means that which is right to one’s own “self”.
The second word that the Spirit spoke to me was Peter 1:24 “All flesh is as grass, and all of the glory of man is as the flower of grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away. But the word of the Lord endures forever.” What does a man glory in except those things which he believes and does for himself? And what man believes or does anything that he does not believe is right?
Suddenly, the lights came on throughout the theater, and I was shocked to see just how huge this theater actually was. It was far bigger than anything that I had imagined!. It was more like a football stadium in size than a theater. But I was even more shocked to see that out of all the seats in that theater, there was only person sitting there. He was sitting about 20 rows back and right in the middle seat. I do not know how I knew, but I knew it was Jesus. He had truly come, and he had been sitting there throughout the entirety of this play, watching everyone play out those things which they believed to be right. Then Jesus stood up and said, “I have seen all the works done here, and I have heard all of the words that have been spoken; and all that I have seen is vanity, and all that I have heard is vanity; vanity of vanities. This is the act that is, but is not; and that was, and was not, and neither shall it ever be.” A great grief came over me as I realized that all this church had prepared for, as well all that which they truly valued in their hearts, was vain and worthless in the sight of God.
Then Jesus walked down in front of the stage, and turned to walk out the exit that was on the opposite side from where I had been standing. I realized that the door that Jesus was about to walk through was not really an exit at all, but rather an entrance into another theater. Then I remembered that this was a twin theater. Just as Jesus opened the door, he turned, and motioned to me and said, “Come out of there and follow Me”. So I did. When I walked into this other theater, I saw that it was exactly the same size as the other theater; and the seating area, the stage, and the backstage area were all lit up. I saw that there was a person sitting in about every fifth seat, and many of the people there came over to greet me. I was told that all of those who were in this theater had come out of the other theater, and that they had all witnessed the same show that I had witnessed. They were also told by Jesus to follow Him into this theater. I sat down, also taking a seat that was five seats from the nearest person.
When I had walked in, I had observed that there was not a person at all back-stage. The only prop I saw was a large beautiful wooden chair sitting in the middle of the stage. Lying beside this chair was a bag that looked similar to the old leather bags that postmen used to carry. It was then that Jesus walked up on stage, and when he did, the theater erupted with great rejoicing and praise. I was struck by the contrast in which Jesus was received by those in the other theater when they were told He was coming. I had only heard much murmuring and complain- ing. Then Jesus, with smiles of great joy, sat down in that big chair. And when the cheering had completely subsided, He then greeted everyone of us by saying, “Thank you for believing on Me and on My words. Thank you for waiting for Me to come to finish the works that I have started. I want to thank you also for enduring My correction, and not loving the corruption of “self”. I want to thank you for believing My word by taking up your crosses and dying to your own desires to be god over your own lives; dying to the lies that have enticed you to believe you can do good of your own self, as well as the lies that have sought to deceive you into believing that you can make your own opinions to be the truth. (I then remembered that which Jesus had said in John 15:5 “Without Me, you can do nothing.”) Then Jesus said, “Thank you for your patience and your faith”.
Then Jesus reached down into the bag, which I contained the prayers of these saints who were here, and He pulled out a card. He proceeded to read aloud that which was written on the card, “Lord, we have been as scattered sheep for so long; for there has been division and strife among us, and we know that the members of Your church should be like-minded, as well as esteeming the lives of our brethren to be greater than our own. But Lord, you have asked us to do that which we have no wisdom of ourselves to do; thus, it is impossible for us to be that body which you desire to have. If you are willing at this time, would you bring Your flock together”?
I do not know how to explain this, but this prayer seemed not only to be the request of just one of us, but it was as though it was the prayer of everyone who was sitting in that theater. Then Jesus simply said, “Unity, Be”. And suddenly, we all found ourselves no longer sitting five seats apart, but rather, right next to each other. It happened so fast that there no way for any of us to see how Jesus did this. He simply spoke it, and it was. Not only were all stunned at how the Lord did this, but we were also stunned in that we all felt as though we had known each other for all of our lives; as though we had all been best friends.
Then Jesus reached down and pulled up another card and read, “Lord, I know that when You called me that You gave me the belief that you were the Son of the living God; and that You shed your blood to cover my sins; and that You were crucified and raised from the dead. But Lord, will you finish the work that You have started in me and give me that belief which believes that all things are possible?” Again, it was as though each one of us could have written that prayer request, for we had all been asking the Lord to do the same. Jesus put down the card and said, “Belief, Be.” Suddenly, everyone in the theater just started touching everyone around them with their hands, and some cases, their fingers, and we were all healed of all of our infirmities and weaknesses. This time, everyone in the theater stood up and cheered; rejoicing and praising Jesus for what He had just done. Though none of us felt like we had any sense of time, we must have praised the Lord for hours after that; not only for the belief that had been given to us, but for all the works that were done as a result of that belief.
Again, Jesus reached in and pulled out a card with this request upon it, “Lord, you promised that when you came, you would set us free from all of our bond-ages to Satan’s lies. Would you do so now?” At first, Jesus seemed not to pay any attention to this question as He reached back into the bag and pulled out another card and read it, “Lord, you said that it would be by Your hand that you would make us to be kings and priests; would you now make us kings and priests unto You?
Then Jesus looked towards us all and said, “I promised you that when I would return, that I would make all those who remained faithful to my words to be a ruler over all that you have. It is done. Now speak and loose your own selves from your bondages”. Immediately, we all began to say such things as, “Anxiety, be gone”; “All evil thoughts, be gone”; “All fear, come out and be cast into the sea”; “Division and strife, perish”; “Uncertainty, flee”. No matter what we spoke, it immediately came to pass. What we had not been able to tame was suddenly tamed through the authority that Jesus had given us over our own tongues. It was simply incredible and amazing; for all that misery and trouble that had so easily ruled over the thoughts of our mind was so easily cast out.
No matter what was spoken, it was done. It was just like how God does things, “Light Be”, and it was; and just like Jesus also did things, “Be healed”, and it was. Wow, who would have ever thought that when the Lord made you ruler over all you had, it would have been your tongue? I remembered what was written in James 3:2 “If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, able also to bridle (rule over) the whole body…8 “But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil full of deadly poison”. Again, everyone stood up cheering loudly and rejoicing, praising Jesus and giving thanks to His name; and again, this went on for quite some time. What a contrast to the silence that followed all of the acts that I had seen in the other theater.
By the time Jesus pulled out the next card, we were all filled with joy unspeakable and were very giddy, knowing that from this moment on, it was impossible for anything to be impossible! We knew that whatever was asked, we were going to see Jesus perform it. The request on the next card read, “Lord, You said once we believed on You, that you would do that which is exceedingly abundantly above anything that we are able to think or to ask; so would you now do that for us?” Then Jesus, with a child-like smile on his face, leaned forward towards us and said very quickly, “Abra Cadabra”; and suddenly we were all changed. We all had been changed into the bodies of that of a twenty year old; yet, our faces were that of a child of about six years old. Jesus, still smiling, said again, “Abra Cadabra”, and we suddenly found ourselves in the most beautiful mountain setting,. We were all standing on top of the water of this mountain lake. The beauty of this place was indescribable. Then we all began walking around, kicking at the water like a small child would do in a mud puddle, amazed at the feeling of walking on water as though we were walking on ground.
Then Jesus again said, “Abra Cadabra”, and all manner of animals and birds came out of the forest, and all walked out on the water and stood with us, and they began talking with us. Even some of the fish stuck there heads out of the water so that they also could speak with us. It was like being a living part of a fairy tale, where there were no limits or boundaries that could be placed on Jesus and the things which He was able to do for us. As much joy as we had seeing Jesus do all of these things for us, so also did Jesus seem to have just as much joy performing them for us. Then one final time, Jesus, having the countenance of a playful child, said, “Abra Cadabra”; and we were all immediately back in the theater.
Then Jesus reached down in the bag once again and read this request, “Father, You said that unless You built Your church, all of our labor would be in vain. So would You now build Your church like the one described in Your Word?” Then Jesus looked up and said, “Church, Be”. And immediately a beautiful spirit filled the room, and it began to stretch forth itself as though it was changing itself into some manner of rope. Then we all seemed to be able to discern that it was not the image of a rope, but rather some manner of soft, beautiful yarn. Then we all watched in amazement as this spiritual yarn began to move in and out of our bodies, actually knitting our hearts together in love that was more beautiful than the spirit itself. I know that I watched this yarn move in and out of me, but the only thing that I felt was a love for my brethren that was nothing like anything that I had ever before experienced.
The effect of this love was not only a feeling of oneness with everyone in that theater, but it was also a feeling of unity in liberty. I realized that every-thing that I had ever loved, I always felt like I must have some manner over it, like one of my favorite shirts; or that I must be in control of it, like my job; or that it must have my approval, like my children; or that I must meet their approval, like my parents; or that something had to be there that was pleasing to me, like my wife. No, it was not like anything that I had known, but it was like this love freed our minds of all our judgments of another, and we delighted in the liberty that we had to be ourselves without having to do anything with the thought that it had to please someone else; yet, there was no selfishness at all in this love.
In this new love, we were all still individuals, but we loved each other because it had simply become our nature to love each other without any conditions placed on that love. There was neither any worry among any of us as to what God himself thought of us; for we all knew in our hearts that we were loved by God for the individual that He made each one of us to be. There was no distrust among us, nor was there any worry that you might do something that would cause the others to cease from loving you. In fact, there was no desire in any of our hearts to compare or measure ourselves with anyone else; for we all knew that we were loved by all just as we were. There was not one jealous thought, nor any envious thought, nor any thought to find a fault with another, nor was there any manner of evil thought at all among any of us. There was no judging of any kind among us. In this love is no desire to exalt yourself above others because there is no thought of “self” in this love; only communion with all those around you.
Though I have tried to describe this love in the best manner that I know how, I know that trying to describe this love is like trying to tell somebody about how big this rock was that you saw, and in their minds, they are thinking that you saw a boulder; but then when they actually got to see it, they saw that you had been trying to describe Mt. Everest to them. There are no words in any of man’s languages that can be used to describe a love that not only does not exist in this world, but that cannot even be imagined by the thoughts of any man. This love can only be known by experiencing it. Yet, all that was necessary for this love to come upon us was for Jesus to send his Spirit into us. This love brought forth a unity and a oneness among us, yet it was without any controls, or rules, or laws, or limitations. Just as I can not find the words to describe this love, neither am I able to find any words that can properly define the freedom that was in the liberty that was also brought forth by this love. Even though it was liberty, there was still an absolute loving care for one another that went far beyond any of the boundaries of any worldly relationship that I have ever experienced, or that I have ever heard of. Wow! What a church! And all Jesus did was say, “Church, Be”, and it was.
Then Jesus reached over and pulled out one last card with this request on it, “Lord, I have one desire, and that is that you might give me a new heart and a new mind so that I might be changed into the image of my Father who is in heaven. I would love to have a mind that did not think that it was robbery to think I could be equal with my God”. Jesus then looked up at all of us, and with tears of joy in his eyes, He then said, “Done”. Then at that very instant, we all witnessed another spirit come forth out of Jesus that was even more awesome in beauty than the other spirit that had brought brotherly love into our hearts. It was as if the first spirit that we saw was as only one color of a rainbow, but this spirit contained all of the colors contained in a rainbow. Suddenly, we all loved our heavenly Father with all of our heart, with all of our soul, with all of our minds, and all of our being. Then we were filled with another manner of love for our brethren that we had not yet experienced, one where we would gladly lay down our lives for our brethren; and this love was so strong, that if you were actually in a place where you it might be required for you to lay down your life for your brethren, there would be no thought in you not to do it.
Then we were all filled with a love for all those who we, at one time or another, had considered to be our enemies. We loved those who hated us; we loved those who had offended us; we loved those who used us; we loved those who had slandered us; we loved those who were evil and unthankful; and we loved those who persecuted us. Then, as if that were not enough, we were all filled with a love for the unlovable; all those who have not met this world’s approval, but have either been outcast, or despised, or neglected, or rejected, or branded in some manner or another. It was then we all knew; we knew that we had been made equal with God through love; unconditional love towards “all” men. There was no desire in any of us to be exalted as God is so that we might be made equal with God. There was no desire in any of us to have any power in ourselves so that we could be made equal with God. There was no desire in any of our hearts to rule over or to have control over the lives of any other; only love. And neither was there any desire in us that said that we must have a name as esteemed and as honored as God’s so that we could be made equal with God. No, no, none of that stuff; for I could now clearly see that all of those desires only came forth from Satan, the very same desires that caused him to fall from his place in God’s kingdom. In fact, it was these same desires that seemed to motivate all those who were acting in the other theater.
When this love had finished filling our hearts, we again all stood, cheering, praising, and greatly thanking our Lord Jesus for all the work that He had just per-formed for us. We sang songs of praise and worship, which went on for what seemed like many, many hours; but it never got old because of the joy and the life which was now in our hearts and minds. After this time, Jesus stood up and said to us, “You are now My witnesses; witnesses of My love, My goodness, and My power. Now I am sending you out into a world filled with hopelessness, vanity, loneliness, hatred, uncertainty, as well as all manner of wickedness and darkness. I am sending you forth as my priesthood of believers, those who know and believe that the only show in town is what I will do for you because I love you. Go, and you know that I will always be with each one of you”.
We were all so excited about the performance that we had just witnessed! We also knew that we had just witnessed the performance that has no end to it, rather, a beginning that would never have an end. We all had similar feelings, that even though we had just witnessed the power and the love of the Lord in a manner that was far greater than anything that we had ever experienced, we also knew that what we had just experienced was nothing compared to that which was getting ready to come. It was as if we had not only witnessed the real “Greatest Show on Earth”, but also a coming attraction of a show that was going to be even greater. The Spirit then quickened to me that which Jesus had promised the church, “The works that I do, you will do greater”. Wow!
As I was leaving the theater, I looked back to see how the marquee described what I had just seen. I saw that the marquee on the left side of the theater read, “Mystery Babylon; The False Church”–Starring all of the Foolish who Desire to be Glorified and Exalted as Gods.” I read the marquee that was on the right side, and it read, “New Jerusalem, the Church of Jesus Christ”–Starring Jesus Christ, and All Those Who Came Out of Mystery Babylon.”
I thought to myself, “Wow! What a difference there is between the two performances; like the difference between night and day, or should I rather say, like the difference between darkness and light. I then saw this written across the bottom of the marquee:
“Coming Soon; Very Soon: The 144,000 Who Were Redeemed with Love and Have Overcome the World.”
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through belief that comes forth from the power of the Holy Spirit. “
This vision was given to Mitt Jeffords
|A Man Is As He Thinks
Mitt JeffordsDear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,
The Lord has given me many dreams and visions over the years. Some have been like those dreams seen by Daniel, and some of the visions have been similar in style to the visions that John saw in Revelation; Many the Lord gave me immediate understanding of, and in others the understanding was revealed more clearly as I walked my walk with the Lord. This vision that I am sending to you is without a doubt the most simple vision that the Lord has ever given to me, but the interpretation that the Lord has given to me of this vision has revealed deep things about God, deep things about my own heart, but the Lord also reveals in this word that there were some things about the darkness that I had been completely ignorant of. Of course, the powers of darkness really only have power as long as man remains in ignorance of what is in the darkness; for as soon as the things of darkness come into the light of God’s truth, its stronghold has been exposed, and the darkness immediately begins to lose its power.
We all know that the Lord is so soon to return, and when he does, he will find some of the members of his body to be wise and ready for his return, while some of the members of his body he will find foolish and unprepared (Matt.25:1-13). Only a fool would be confident that he could not be counted to be among the foolish. Who is there who does not believe that he is ready for the return of the Lord? There is only one thing that is foolish in the sight of God, and that is the wisdom of this world (I Cor.3:19). So when the Lord returns, he will find some of the members of his body have filled themselves with his wisdom, while some members of his body just continued on being wise in their own eyes. It is with this word, that the Lord made clear for me the difference between these two wisdoms. I can only speak for myself, but I desire to be found among the wise when the Lord returns, and I am so thankful for this word where the Lord really distinguishes the difference between the two.
I know many will say, “I am under the blood of Christ” and that is all that I need to be ready. But even the scriptures say in Hebrews 9:14-15 “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” I too am under the blood, as well as under his wonderful grace that allows for him to purge my conscience of dead works. I cannot imagine the feeling in those who thought that they were wise, suddenly finding themselves left behind. It is for this reason that I am so thankful that the Lord has given to you this word; a word that makes clear as to what wisdom is guiding our thoughts.
The Lord is coming to be glorified in his elect (II Thess.1:10/Rom.8:18,19 / I John 3:2); he is coming in all of his fullness. But who understands that before he can increase, we must decrease? Who can understand that we must first be emptied before the fullness of Christ can come? There is not a one of us that would not love for the Lord to fill us with all of his fullness, but who is willing to decrease that he may increase, and who is willing to be emptied before he can be filled? Just what is it that must be decreased in us, and what is it that we must be emptied of first? Again, I am so thankful for this word because the Lord has answered in this word these questions.
Lastly, not long after the Lord began to speak his words to me concerning this vision, the Lord spoke to me one morning while I was praying and said this: “Mitt, this is the most important revelation that I need to reveal before the actual revelation of Jesus Christ comes to pass”. I knew from the beginning, when the Lord began speaking this word to me, that it was truly a deep word, but I could not see how this could be the most important revelation before the revelation of Jesus Christ in his elect….that is until the night before last. I was praying just before going to bed when the Lord spoke to me and actually spoke to me that which is written in II Thes.2:1-5
“Now I beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God”.
Immediately my heart was filled with excitement and joy when the Lord spoke this to me because it is with the word that you are about to read that the Lord exposes fully just what / who the man of sin, the son of destruction is. But then I ask, “But Lord, what do you mean when you say, “that day shall not come”; what is “that day”, Lord?” Then the Lord said, “Well what is written just prior to this word?” I then thought back to what was written in II Thessalonians 1:7-10
“And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; when he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
I then knew, that the only thing hindering the Lord from coming in me, or anyone else was that the man of sin, the son of perdition must be revealed. Again, I thank God for revealing these things to me, and to all of you who will receive this word as though it was coming from the Lord, and not from Mitt (I Thes.2:13).
If you are not prepared to ask the Lord to be with you in the reading of this word, or if you do not think that you need to ask the Lord for his understanding and wisdom to be applied to these words, then you are going to waste your time in reading it. I encourage you to remember that which Paul said in Rom.7:17, “If I sin, then it is no longer I that sins, but sin that dwells in me”. Have you ever noticed how Paul spoke of sin here as though it was in his temple, but it was something that he had somehow become separated from? Just as there was present with Paul 2 distinct laws that had no agreement with one another, remember also that which is written that says, “Greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world”; but remember, that the world here is not in the physical, but that which is written in I John 2:15-17.
The Lord is putting together the pieces of his puzzle, and his mystery is about to be revealed to the world (Isa.61 & 62). Hope to see you there. You are the beloved of the your heavenly Father, and there is nothing that he has done for one that he will not do for any. Grace and peace be multiplied unto you in believing all the Lord’s words so that he might make you the great and mighty thing that he is about to reveal to this world.
Much love in Christ Jesus,
A Man Is As He Thinks
Vision of the thoughts of man: “A man is as he thinks”
PROVERBS 23:7 “For as a man thinks in his heart, so he is….”
ISAIAH 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts…For as the heavens are higher than the earth are my thoughts above your thoughts”.
PSALM 94:11 “For the Lord knows the thoughts of man that they are vanity”.
ROMANS 8:5 (AMP.) “For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh; but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the Spirit”.
PROVERBS 16:3 “Commit your works unto the Lord, and your thoughts shall be established”.
During praise and worship, my head was bowed and my eyes were closed when the Lord suddenly gave me this vision; and then later this word. At first I thought that what I was seeing was simply a vision of my own imaginations, but then I realized that I had never, nor would I ever, image any such like thing that I was seeing. I found myself sitting in some type of room that resembled a home library; for all the walls had bookcases full of old and new books. There was a old desk and chair at one end of the room, two very nice looking sitting chairs in the middle of the room, and there was a very comfortable sitting chair at the other end of the room next to a window; and it was this chair that I found myself sitting in. The only light coming into the room was the sunlight coming through the window that was next to me. The curtains on this window were only partially pulled back, and I found myself just sitting there staring at the dust particles that were made visible by the sunlight. They seemed to be just drifting around in the air, neither falling to the floor nor rising to any higher elevation than that which they were. It was not until then that I realized that this was not a vision of my own imagination but a vision from the Lord, because I would never even consider imagining myself doing such a thing.
So I then began to examine these dust particles more closely to see if I could discern what it was that the Lord might be trying to show me; and when I did, I saw that there were not only particles just floating and drifting about, but there was also another type of particle that did not drift but appeared to be swimming rather swiftly through air. In fact, these particles seemed to swim in the same fashion that I have seen sperm cells swimming about in science films; always moving quickly about and never being still. As I examined these particles even more closely, I could see that they were not only livelier but they also appeared to be much healthier than those drifting particles; for they appeared to be about 3 to 4 times thicker in size than them. These healthier particles also seemed to move around as though they had a purpose and a direction while the thinner particles seemed not to have either purpose or direction as they just drifted about. It was only then that I began to wonder what I was really witnessing in this vision. I then began to ask the Lord to explain this vision for me so that I might understand his purpose in giving this vision; for without understanding, the vision itself would have no purpose.
Then the Lord spoke to me and said, “All of the particles that you see in this vision, they represent the words/thoughts that dwell in the mind of a man; they are the words that form the thoughts that men think upon. The words/thoughts that you saw that appeared skinny and that seemed to just drift about aimlessly as though they had no purpose, these are those words/thoughts that dwell in the mind of man that have no life or purpose in them because they are thoughts that are not regarded or believed on; but they are still there. The reason that these thoughts are not regarded or believed on is because they are not considered worthy enough to esteem or honor; or they may simply be words/ thoughts that are not pleasing or desirable for one to think upon. It could also be that these thoughts are regarded as foolish or evil thoughts, or thoughts that are impossible for a man to do. These thoughts may also not be regarded because they may seem as though they are not able to bring forth any satisfaction or gain. It could also be that these words/ thoughts are not believed on because they may appear as though they are counsels that are not able to bring forth any glory or praise to self. It could be for any of these types of reasons that these words/thoughts appear as those particles of dust that just drift lifelessly through the air without having any purpose.
Though these words/thoughts appear not to have any purpose, they still continue to drift around unnoticed in the imaginations of men’s thoughts; but they are just waiting for the that occasion or circumstance that will give them the opportunity to present themselves as the right instruction or counsel that should be regarded or believed on in that moment. If then that word/thought is chosen to be “believed” on, then shall those words/thoughts be birthed into life because they have been chosen as counsels for that man to live his life according to. It is in this awakening of “belief” that can suddenly give life to those words/thoughts that had never once been regarded or considered before. It is this awakening that can quickly transform those skinny, lifeless dust particles into those lively healthy particles because they now have a purpose to live for. It is of these lively and healthy counsels that men live their lives according to; words/thoughts that will them give then direction and instruction as to what to do, or how to act, or what to speak in every circumstance and situation that arises in their life.
It was at this point, while the Lord was speaking these words to me, that the Spirit of the Lord brought back into my remembrance another experience I had with Lord which I testified of in the “The Darkness & the Light” (posted on April 24, 2006 on www.etpv.org), where I saw that the darkness compassed the entire earth, and the darkness consisted of nothing but words, and the words turned out to be nothing but lying spirits from Satan; each word was a spirit; and each spirit bore the nature of the word that it was. And each spirit dwelled in the hearts and minds of all those who believed on them. I also saw that each man’s nature was determined by nature of the words/spirits that he believed on. Though I saw there were many different kinds of spirits in that vision, I saw that they all had one common characteristic among them, and that was that they all had insatiable desires and affections to think only on the being of “self”. And the Lord continued….
Do you see and understand how these healthy, lively particles got their status? Do you see that they only get their status when they become the words/thoughts that men choose to believe on and trust in? Can you comprehend that it is when these words/ thoughts are believed on, that they then become the counsels that each man establishes his righteousness on; and that righteousness then becomes the law that each man then lives his life according to? How to raise your children; how to conduct your business; how to treat other men; what type of clothes to wear; what foods to eat; what type of job to have; how to stay healthy; how to make decisions; and how to worship and serve God are just a few examples that reveal what words/thoughts that a man has chosen to believe for himself; words/thoughts that he believes and trust to be right enough for him to live his life by. Do you understand and comprehend it is by the deeds that men do and the words that they speak that the righteousness of a man is revealed?
Now consider this; how many words/thoughts pass through the thinking of a man in the course of one day; whether they drifting or swimming through? How many words/thoughts pass through his mind about his dreams, or his plans, or his job, or about his family, or about his own desires and pleasures, or about his future, or about his finances, or about his religion, or about the cares and worries of his life? And many other words/thoughts pass through his thinking that he hears spoken by others? Multitudes and multitudes of words/thoughts passing though; and so many to choose from as he decides which ones are the right counsels for him to believe on. How many words/thoughts pass through his mind that he would love to believe on, but by reason of his fears of what others will think of him, or by fear of consequences, he is hindered or prevented from making many of these words/thoughts the counsels to believe on; though he desires in his heart to do so. Even with so many, many words/thoughts to choose believe on, is it possible for him to choose any that are able to bring forth life when all of the words/thoughts that he is able to think on come forth from death? Is it possible for him to do good when all of the imaginations of his thoughts are only able to think evil?
JOEL 3:13-14 “Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision”.
GENESIS 6:5 “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth; that every imagination of the thought of his heart was only evil continually”.
Now I ask you to consider the counsel of my word which speaks this truth, “Your thoughts are not my thoughts; for as high as the heavens are above the earth so are my thoughts above your thoughts”? If your words/thoughts are not my words/thoughts, then whose words/thoughts have you been thinking and meditating on? Do you really believe my words which testify that none of your thoughts are right or good? What about all those words/thoughts that pass through the thinking of your mind in the course of one day, are you not confident in many of them that they are right and true? Does not my word also speak on this wise saying, “Righteousness belongs only to God”? If your thoughts are not my thoughts, then surely it is not possible for your righteousness to be as my righteousness; and if your righteousness is not my righteousness, then whose righteousness are you living your life after? Surely you are not living your life in the manner that I created for you to live your life. Again I ask for you to consider, if your words/thoughts are not my words/thoughts, then whose words/thoughts are you believing on and trusting in? Did I not tell you that you were not your own?
ROMANS 3:10 “As it is written, “There is none righteous; no not one”.
DANIEL 9:7 “O Lord, righteousness belongs unto you, but unto us confusion of face….”
If your words/thoughts are not my words/thoughts”, says the Lord, “then how is it possible for there to be any agreement between man and God? What communion can there even be between two who have differing thoughts, and each one believes and trusts that his thoughts are right and true? Do you really believe me when I tell you that not even your most righteous word/thought has any agreement with the least of any of my thoughts? If then my words/thoughts are right and true, and they have no agreement with your words/thoughts, then who has been instructing you to believe that your words/thoughts are right and true? Who counsels you to argue, or to reject, or to strive against, or to make light of, or to fight, or to resist, or to hate all words/thoughts that you hear that do not agree with that which you believe and trust? From where come the seducing desires within that burn within you to believe that your words/thoughts are right and true; deceiving you into believing that there cannot be any other words/thoughts that are more righteous than your own? Who/what is dwelling in the tabernacle of your mind? How is it possible that all of your words/thoughts, which seem to be so right and true in your own eyes, have no agreement with any of my words/thought? Is not every man captive to the words/thoughts that he believes on, to serve and to do them because he believes that they are right and true counsels? What man is there who has any thought that there truly may be other men, or other spirits, or another God who can be more righteous in his thinking than they? Who can even believe God when his word testifies that he sees all of man’s imaginations to be evil and that all of the thoughts of man are nothing but vanity?
AMOS 3:3 “Can two walk together except they be agreed?”
ROMANS 3:4 “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar…”
PSALM 94:11 “The Lord knows the thoughts of man that they are vanity”.
GENESIS 6:5 “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thought of his heart was only evil continually”.
JOB 35:2 “Do you think this to be right that you said, “My righteousness is more than Gods”?
I have seen the thoughts of man, and I have seen death; and I see that they are one and the same. From where comes all of the vain, miserable, and evil words/thoughts that men continually think upon except from the death that rules over all of the imaginations of those who are carnally minded? I have seen the death that brings into the thinking of all those who are carnally minded such carnal thoughts as these: bitterness, envy, confusion, worry, cruelty, contention, pride, anxiety, loneliness, covetousness, hatred, greed, doubt, murder, arguments, self-glory, unbelief, malice, spitefulness, hypocrisy, impatience, strife, depression, arrogance, boredom, corruption, hopelessness, meanness, revenge, dread, stress, disappointment, self-condemnation, as well the various kinds of fears that torment the mind. Do you believe that I created man to live his life in bondage to these types of words/thoughts? Again I say to you that my thoughts are not as your thoughts, for I would never bow my heart to entertain for the slightest of moments to ever think upon any such vain and miserable words/thoughts as these; lest the same death that has overtaken man should overtake me; and I would myself would become like death. How deceived is the man who establishes his righteousness for living on the counsels of any of these words/thoughts?
ROMANS 8:6 “For the carnal mind is death but the spiritual mind is life and peace; for the carnal mind is enmity against God, and is not subject to the law of God (the law of the spirit of life/Rom.8:2) , and indeed it cannot be”.
ROMANS 8:2 “For the law of the Spirit of life has made me free from the law of sin and death (the words/thoughts of the carnal mind)”.
Do you believe that I am as you are, that the same words/thoughts that you think upon are the same words/thoughts that I think upon? Do you still think that I said in vain that your thoughts are not my thoughts? Do you think that a man who is led by the counsels of any of these words/thoughts is a man of a sound mind? Do you really think that I would allow for any of these words/thoughts to lead me in the decisions that I would make? Do you really believe that I would ever allow myself to be transformed into the images of darkness? Did you not know that Death is the very image of darkness; and that the darkness shows itself in the image of the words/thoughts that appear in the carnal mind? Do you believe that the abundant life of God has any agreement or communion with the death that rules over the imaginations that control the thinking of the carnally minded. Do you really think that the life that I have promised to you consists of any of these wicked and miserable counsels?
II TIMOTHY 1:7 “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”.
ROMANS 8:14 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God”.
PSALM 50:21 (NKJ) “These things you have done, and I kept silent. You thought that I was altogether like you; but I will rebuke you, and set them in order before your eyes”.
PSALM 1:1 “Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law (Rom.8:2,6) doth he meditate day and night”.
I say again to you that my thoughts are not as your thoughts. I see the words/thoughts that men believe in their hearts when they blame others, when they curse others, when they find fault with others, when they have evil suspicions one of another, when they accuse others, when they threaten one another, when they revile one another, when they judge others, when they slander others, when they speak falsely one of another, when they spread rumors about one another, when they condemn others, when they do not forgive one another, when they speak evil of others, when they backbite, when they intimidate one another, as well as the revenge they seek one against another when one has been offended or sinned against. Where do such evil and wicked words/thoughts come from that instruct the thoughts of men to do such things? And again I ask you to consider this, do you think that any man who is led by any such counsels as these is a man of sound mind? How can any man think to himself that he is a man of a sound man when he judges and accuses others without mercy seeing that it is in the same manner that he has judged others that he is going to be judged on that last day? Should not a man take heed to the counsel of this word seeing that the day is fast approaching when his own judgments are going to judge him? Do you not know that all who judge in such an evil and unmerciless manner are only storing up wrath against themselves in the Day of Judgment? Do you think that I created man in the image of these words/thoughts; words/ thoughts that would then lead my creations to do those things that would bring about his own destruction and condemnation? Who is doing the thinking for all those who would do such a foolish and insane thing?
MATTHEW 7:1-5 “Judge not, that you be not judged; for with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye”.
ROMANS 2:1 “Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge do the same things (commit sin)”…5 “but after your hardness and impenitent heart you treasure up unto yourself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God”.
Have I not given unto each one of you the good instruction that says that you are to cease from walking after the vain words/thoughts that the rest of the Gentiles walk after? Have not I asked you to put off the old man which is corrupted by the words/thoughts of death and that you are to put on the new man which walks after the words/thoughts of my Holy Spirit; words/thoughts that are full of life? Is it not as it is written, that the knowledge of the life of God can only be found in the consciousness of those who are spiritually minded; those who follow after my Spirit in that strait and narrow path that leads to life? Do you desire for death to do your thinking, or do you desire for life to do your thinking? Which thinking is right and true unto you?
EPHESIANS 4:17,18 “This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart”.
ROMANS 6:4-6 “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of “life”. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin”.
EPHESIANS 4:21-25 “If so be that you have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus, that you put off concerning the former conversation (words/thoughts) the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind. And that you put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak the truth every man with his neighbor: for we are members one of another”.
I came into this world to set my creation free from their bondage to death. I came into this world to destroy the death that entered in at the fall. I have come into this world as the spirit of life. I am spirit and I am life; my words are spirit and life; my thinking is spirit and it is life. I am the words/thoughts that inhabit the spiritual mind. I am the Spirit of the spiritual mind. I am the life and peace that dwells in the spiritual mind. I have come to give life, and to give it abundantly. But who will give to me their thinking in exchange for that thinking that I desire to give? Who will let me redeem the death in minds with the Spirit of my life? Who will give to me the words/thoughts that inhabit the place that I desire to make my dwelling place; for I am the words/thoughts of life? A man is as he thinks.
II CORINTHIANS 3:17 “Now the Lord is that Spirit; and where the spirit of the Lord is there is liberty”.
ROMANS 8:2 “For the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death…6 …and the spiritual mind is life and peace”.
I see all of the lively and the lifeless words/thoughts that inhabit the thinking of the carnal mind, and they are all death. I see all of the vain and foolish words/thoughts that dwell in the thoughts of all the carnally minded, and they trouble me. I see all of evil and wicked words/thoughts of the carnal mind, and they are all abominable. I see all of the fearful anxious, and dreadful words/thoughts that torment the thinking of the carnally minded, and they are all miserable. I see all of the deceitful words/thoughts that hide in the darkness of the carnal mind, and they are all lies. I see the words/ thoughts that men choose to believe on as well as the words/thoughts that are rejected and scorned. I have see all of the thoughts of the mind, those with purpose and those without purpose, and they are still all vanity. I have seen best and the most righteous words/thoughts that the carnally minded can think on, and they are all illusions. Is it possible for anything that is vain to bring forth anything that is profitable? Is it possible for anything that is evil to bring forth anything that is good? Is it possible for anything that is dead to bring forth any life of itself? Is it possible for any amount of wrongs to make anything right? I have all seen all of the words/thoughts that inhabit the thoughts of the carnal mind, and there is no life in any of them. I came into this world to give life to the dead. I am willing to give life, but where are the dead who are willing to give themselves to me in exchange?
PSALM 39:5 “….Truly, every man at his best state is altogether vanity”.
ECCLESIASTES 1:14 “I have seen all the works (deeds of the words/thoughts) that are done under the sun, and all is vanity and troubling of spirit”.
JEREMIAH 13:23 “Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard its spots? Then may you also do good who are accustomed to do evil?”
ROMANS 12:1,2 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.
It is written, “In the beginning was the Word; and the Word was with God; and the Word was God”. I am the Word; I am the Word of life. I am the truth. I am the Word of truth and life. I am the Word made flesh, full of grace and truth. I am the Word of life that appears in the flesh of all those who give to me their thinking. Now hear and understand: In the beginning, I created Adam after my own image; that is, after the image of my words/thoughts; words/thoughts of life and truth. I did not create Adam after the image of any of these carnal words/thoughts. These words/thoughts had no dwelling place in the minds of Adam or Eve….that is, until the fall; until the day that Adam and Eve freely chose to forsake the counsel of my words/thoughts in order that they may believe the lying words/thoughts of Satan’s counsel instead. On that day, through the deceitful and enticing words of Satan joined with the desires of their heart, they freely chose for death to be the ruler over their thinking. For it is as it is written, “No man can have 2 masters”; either choose death or choose life. On the day that they forsook my counsel, then the image of my words/thoughts, the words of life and truth, departed from their thinking to make way for their new master: the death that rules over all of the words/thoughts of those who are carnally minded.
JOHN 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word; and the Word was with God; and the Word was God….14 “And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us…full of grace and truth”.
GENESIS 1:26,27 “And God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth”. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them”.
ROMANS 8:6 “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace”.
MATTHEW 6:24 “No man can serve 2 masters; for either he will hate the one and the love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise (make light of) the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (that which is trusted; riches; treasure)”.
PROVERBS 8:36 “For he that sins against me wrongs his own soul; all they that hate me love death (the thoughts of the carnal mind)”.
On the day of the fall, the life of God that was in the thinking of their minds, that which was created after the image of God, departed from their thoughts; and all of the words/ thoughts of the righteousness of God that had given unto them abundant life, were then transformed into the likeness of these lifeless dust particles that drift about because they have no purpose. Until that day, Adam and Eve had daily eaten of the tree of life, and the words/thoughts in their minds were continually renewed in the image of the words of life. It was also on that day the desires and the affections of a man’s heart were given over to submission to the lies of Satan; the lies whose complete focus is only on the vain image of the being of “self”. It was on that day that all fellowship and communion between God and man ceased; and the purpose that God created man upon the earth was corrupted. On that day, the darkness of corruption and mortality took it’s place to rule over the world with death; the world that God himself had created. A man is as he thinks; he who is carnally minded thinks and speaks death; he who is spiritually minded thinks and speaks life.
EPHESIANS 4:17,18 “This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart”.
PROVERBS 23:7 “For as he thinks in his heart, so he is…”
MATTHEW 12:34-37 “O generation of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say unto you, “That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment”. For by thy words you shall be justified, and by thy words thou shall be condemned”.
PROVERBS 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruits thereof”.
I Am the Lord of life. I Am the God of the living and not the dead. I Am life. I Am the Words of Life. Those who depart from me depart from life. Those who do not desire to obey me are those who choose for death to be the lord of their thinking. Those who choose death to be their lord are those whose very image is death, and they have death for their thinking. Death has no power to rule over life because I Am life; I Am the source of all life; I Am that which life consists of, and I will never bow the knee of my heart to serve even one of the lying words/thoughts of death. When Adam and Eve chose to follow the counsels of Satan’s words, then I, as the image of, and the very affection for my Father’s words/thoughts, then departed from their hearts and minds; and thus was the saying brought to pass that is written: “Your thoughts are not my thoughts”. On the day that death took it’s rule, not only did the lies of Satan enter in, but so also did the love and affection to believe his lies also took take it’s throne to rule over the hearts and thoughts of all who are carnally minded. In the kingdom of darkness, not only is there a desire to love Satan’s lies, but so also is there a burning desire to hate the truth of God. I am the image of the truth of God, and I am the wisdom of God that loves the truth; and I, as the light of life from which all things were created, and from which all creation communed and fellowshipped with God by, was taken out of the world. Death came; Death came as the darkness that completely alienates and separates all creation from the life intended by it’s Creator. Only death is able to dwell in the darkness that inhabits the words/thoughts of the carnal mind; a darkness where there is no presence of the God of life. On that day, God became man’s alien.
COLOSSIANS 1:21-22 “And you who were sometimes alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy, and unblameable, and unreproveable in his sight”.
JOHN 1:10 “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not”.
I am the Lord of light that the darkness has blinded all men to see. I am the Lord of life that the darkness has alienated my creation from. It is the darkness that blinds the eyes of man so that there is none who are able to see the life or that can correctly interpret life. There is no man is able to see as I see”, says the Lord. “For fallen man judges all things according to appearances; for the carnal mind only has the ability to interpret the appearances and the images of what he sees. For all men judge and measure other men after the height and the weight of their bodies; after the intelligence of their words; after the color of their skin; after the measure of their wealth, and riches, and fame; after the countenance in their faces; after the gender of their body; and after the appearance of their works and deeds. But in this world of darkness, all appearances are only illusions; illusions where vain things appear to be right and true things that a man should live his life according to; and illusions to judge others after the lives they appear to live. There is no man who is able to discern the truth about the intents and the motives of his own heart, much less the intents and motives of the hearts of others. Understand this, I said that your thoughts are not my thoughts because it never enters into my mind to judge any man according to his appearance; for appearances are only illusions; and illusions deceive; and all who judge according to appearances only deceive themselves. These deceive themselves because when they condemn others, they are only condemning themselves. From where came the saying that says, “Nothing is as it appears”?
I SAMUEL 16:7 And the Lord said unto Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart”.
JOHN 7:24 “Judge not according to appearances but judge righteous judgment”.
JOHN 8:15 Jesus said, “You judge after the flesh; I judge no man”.
I CHRONICLES 28:9 “And you, Solomon my son, know you the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searches all hearts, and understands all the imaginations of the thoughts; if you seek him, he will be found of thee; but if you forsake him, he will cast you off for ever”.
I CORINTHIANS 4:5 “Judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes and brings to light the hidden things of darkness and the counsels (words/thoughts) of the heart; then shall every man have praise of God”.
Thus says the Lord, “I judge no man after appearances, but I judge all men after the words that are thought upon in his heart; for where the desires of the heart are, there shall you find the riches and the treasures of his heart; the riches and treasures of the life that he finds pleasurable and that he would love to have. I see the words/thoughts that are desired. I see the words/thoughts that are esteemed. I see the words/thoughts that are believed on. I see the words/thoughts that exalted to be right. I see the words/thoughts that are honored. I see the words/thoughts that are trusted in. I see the words/thoughts that are delighted in. I see the words/thoughts that are desired to be truth. I see the words/thoughts that men hate and despise. I see whose words/thoughts, whether death or life, that appear as lifeless dust particles as well as those which appear as lively particles with purpose. I see that the measure of man is not according to his appearance but it is according to the words/thoughts that he believes on and agrees with.
I CHRONICLES 28:9 “….for the LORD searches all hearts, and understands all the imaginations of the thoughts…”
PSALM 139:23,24 “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting”.
PSALM 10:4 “The wicked, through the pride of his own appearance, will not seek after God; God is not in “all” of his thoughts”.
Thus says the Lord, “I came into the world to reconcile the world unto God; but who is he who can understand what the world needs to be reconciled of? I came into the world, the world which I created, and the world did not know me. I came as the righteousness of God into a world where each man believes that righteousness comes forth how he sees and interprets all things. Who is willing to allow for me to reconcile his world? Who is willing to allow for me to make life first in his thinking rather than death? I forewarned Adam and Eve in the beginning that if they disobeyed my words/thoughts, and chose to eat of the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, then death would surely enter into the world; and death would be the first desire in their thinking. Have you ever considered just what it was that overcame Adam and Eve, that which enticed them and led them to disobey the counsel of God? Was it Satan’s lies that overcame them or was it their own desires that overcame them; desires that arose in their hearts whereby they wished to believe that Satan’s words were the truth rather than the words that had been given to them from God? Do you see how it was by reason of these desires that a power arose within them that led to fall of man upon the earth; a powerful desire to believe lies. What power could any lying words/thoughts have if there was no desire to believe them? So then, I ask you once again, what does this world need to be reconciled of?
JAMES 1:13 “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempts he any man: but every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own desires, and enticed. Then when desire has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren”.
ROMANS 6:16 “Do you not know that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?”
ROMANS 5:10 “For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his “life”.
What man is even able to comprehend just how great his captivity is to the death that rules over the thinking of the carnal mind? Do you still scoff at me when I tell you that your thoughts are not my thoughts? Do you still make light of my instruction that says that all of your thoughts are vanity and your imaginations are continually evil? I created man to be partakers of life, not to be captives to death. I created man for communion and fellowship, not alienation and separation. But how can darkness fellowship with light, and with what communion does death have with life? If you desire to commune and fellowship with God, should not first understand that which must first be reconciled unto God? How can that which is an enemy become a friend except that which makes it an enemy is first removed?
COLOSSIANS 1:21-22 “And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now has he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight”.
If you believe that my words are true, then what agreement could the definition of the carnal mind’s interpretation of life have with my spiritual definition of life; seeing that your thoughts are not my thoughts? What agreement does the carnal mind’s definition of love have with my love, or the likeness between the carnal mind’s understanding of the truth and the truth of God? How can a proud mind possibly interpret my humility and meekness? How can the carnal mind comprehend true forgiveness where sins and transgressions are forgiven, and they never return to the thoughts of the mind? How can the minds of those who delight in judging others, in finding fault with others, and in accusing others find any communion with God who then delights in showing mercy to the same? Where is the communion between anxiety and peace of mind? Where are the carnally minded who are clothed with everlasting joy?
PSALM 50:21 (NKJ) “These things you have done, and I kept silent. You thought that I was altogether like you; but I will rebuke you, and set them in order before your eyes”.
How can any man comprehend the truth of my love, my truth, my patience, my power, my gentleness, my meekness, my care, my joy, my mercy, my belief, my forgiveness, my humility, and my goodness when he uses the thinking of the carnal mind to interpret my heart and my nature? Do you not understand that they who think that I am in the likeness of their carnal interpretations are changing me to be an image like unto the death of the carnal mind; a likeness that is only an illusion of lies that seem right? Only a fool would think that my heart and my nature can be interpreted with the understanding of the carnal mind that is corrupted with darkness; and all who use their carnal mind to interpret me, they blind themselves to ever see any need for me in their lives because they have me to be like an image of themselves. All those who think that my heart and my nature can be compared to the heart and the nature of man, they are blind to see that by their own thoughts they have made themselves to be like unto God. I am not a man. My nature is not like unto a man. My character is not like unto a man. I am not like a man. My thoughts are not as your thoughts. My ways are not your ways. I do not see as man sees. I tell you again, I and my Father are as aliens unto men. Though there be none who are righteous in their thinking or good in their hearts, the hypocrite will still think to walk in the image that is according to his own interpretations of my nature and my heart; and these are so confident that I am pleased with their efforts and works? I tell you that all false witnesses are an abomination in my sight. Who will seek to know the truth about my heart and my nature, rather than to twist my image into the likeness of their own carnal thoughts and heart’s desires?
I CORINTHIANS 2:9-14 “But as it is written, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God has revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knows no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God so that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God; which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teaches, but that which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned.
II CORINTHIANS 6:14 “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them.
ROMANS 3:10 “As it is written, there are none righteous….and there are none good”.
I JOHN 3:2 “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifies himself, even as he is pure”.
EXODUS 20:4-5 “You shall not make unto you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me”.
Who is able to understand that I have no communion with the interpretations of the words/thoughts that inhabit the carnal mind? Who is able to comprehend that it is only the Devil who communes and fellowships with those who are carnally minded because it is who has fathered all of the words/thoughts that are conceived in the carnal mind. He knows well the name of all his children, such as fear, hatred, bitterness, confusion, doubt, anxiety, depression, slander, worry, unbelief, fornication, and pride; and the Devil knows that all of his children desire to serve him only. Just as the Devil desired to be like unto God, so also do the children of darkness desire to be like unto God, but after their own interpretations and imaginations which twist the image of the heavenly God into the likeness of their own goodness, their own pleasure, and their own righteousness. These are the children who love to satisfy their own desires through their own deceivings. Do you see how the darkness works in a man to satisfy the desires of death that rule over the carnal mind? Do you understand yet that which man needs to be reconciled of?
JOHN 8:44 (Jesus speaking to those who thought that they had Abraham for their father) “You are of your father the Devil and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer (when he deceived Eve) from the beginning, and he dwells not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own; for he is a liar and the father of it”.

|ROMANS 1:20-25 “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but they became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools; and they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and 4 footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the desires of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves; who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature (the image that they made themselves to be after) more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
EZEKIEL 28:2 “Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, “Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because your heart is lifted up and you have said, “I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas”; yet you are a man, and not God, though you set your heart as the heart of God”.
I came into this world to give to all men a choice between death and life. Have I not set before you all a choice between life and death? Have I not given to you the ability to choose between life and death? I am giving unto each one of you a choice that will allow for each one of you to choose whose words/thoughts your desire to believe; a choice between the words/thoughts of the carnal mind or the words/thoughts that inhabit the spiritual mind? If you had life dwelling in your thoughts, would it be necessary for me to even give to you such a choice as this? Life is not that which comes naturally, for death is thoughts that the carnally minded know naturally. I am not the words/thoughts that natural man desires to be true, but I am the words/thoughts of truth that sets men free from their miserable captivity to the thinking of the carnal mind. I am the word made flesh, the word that is full of grace and truth. I am the word of life come to redeem those who are carnally minded, who hate the counsels of death. But who will choose to have me to be their words/thoughts? I am the truth that makes free, but who will choose me? He who chooses truth loves life, and he who does not choose me loves the death that rules over all of his being. I will speak truth, but many will harden their hearts when they hear the voice of my words/thoughts because they have no desire within them to receive or to believe my words/thoughts; for they are alien and strange to them.
DEUTERONOMY 30:19 “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore choose life that both you and your seed may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey his voice, that you may cleave unto him; for he is your life….”
PROVERBS 8:36 “He that sins against me wrongs his own soul; all they that hate me love death”.
JOHN 8:31 “If you continue in my word, then shall you be my disciples; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”.
PROVERBS 16:3 “Commit your works unto the Lord and your thoughts shall be established”.
Now again, I want to remind of that which I once taught you, that the words/thoughts of God and the words/thoughts of Satan do not sit equally balanced in the hearing of man; for man being created from the dust of earth, by reason of the natural elements loves the “self” being that all lies focus on; for is it not as it is written, that no man ever hated himself? But man was created from the very dust of the earth that Satan himself inhabited; seeing that when he was cast out of heaven, he was cast “into the earth”. It is of these earthy elements from which Adam was created that also brought forth the desire in Adam and Eve to believe Satan’s lies. Though I created Adam after the image of my words/ thoughts, he was compassed about by an earthy vessel that was/is subject to worldly desires. It is by reason of these earthy elements that a desire arouse in their hearts to believe Satan’s lies; and when the serpent sowed the seed of his words in Eve, he then departed, knowing that it was only a matter of time before his words would arouse these earthy elements from their sleep; and then would come forth those worldly desires that tempt all to believe that Satan’s words are right and true. For it is only worldly desires that make it pleasurable for a man to believe lies. Until that day, neither Adam nor Eve had never heard any lying words, thus keeping asleep the worldly desires and pleasures that inhabited their earthy vessel. But now that these worldly elements were aroused, they began to join themselves to the seed of Satan’s words with belief; and once the belief came forth, then that which had been forbidden began to appear pleasing in their sight. And when they sinned against God, death came swiftly upon them; the
GENESIS 3:6 “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat”.
GALATIANS 4:3-5 “Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law (Rom.8:2 the law of sin and death), that we might receive the adoption of sons.
REVELATION 12:9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out “into” the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
JUDE 10 “But these speak evil of those things which they do not know: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves”.
II CORINTHIANS 4:6-7 “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge (words/thoughts) of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels so that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us”.
JAMES 1:14-16 “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own desires and enticed. Then when desire has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren.
And so it is today, that just as these desires burned like as a fiery passion in the hearts and the minds of Adam and Eve to rebel against the counsel of God, so also does that same fire continually burn in the thoughts of all who are carnally minded. Can the spiritually minded be tempted by carnal desires and pleasures? I think not, seeing that the Spirit has no desire for worldly things. Yet, are not my people still being tempted today in the same manner as Adam and Eve; having the same desires that prefer to believe that lying words/thoughts of Satan are truth rather than the counsel of my words”, says the Lord. “False doctrines, traditions, laws, denominations, and the commandments of men so easily take away the heart of my people today with their enticing words appearances of being true and right. Can you not see how powerless all these words/thoughts are in that they are not able to deliver any from the death that rules over the words/thoughts of the carnal mind?
MARK 7:9 “And Jesus said to them, “Full well you reject the commandment of God that ye may keep your own tradition…13 thus making the word of God to be of no effect through your tradition, which you have delivered: and many such like things you do”.
ISAIAH 30:8-13 “Now go, write it before them on a tablet, and note it on a scroll, that it may be for the time to come, forever and ever: that this is a rebellious people, lying children; children who will not hear the law (law of life) of the LORD; Who say to the seers, “Do not see,”; and to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us right things; speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits. Get you out of the way; turn aside from the path and cause the Holy one of Israel to cease from before us.” Therefore thus says the Holy one of Israel: “Because you despise this word, and trust in oppression and perversity, and rely on them, therefore this iniquity shall be to you like a breach ready to fall; a bulge in a high wall whose breaking comes suddenly, in an instant”.
ISAIAH 65:2 “I have spread out my arms all the day to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, after their “own thoughts”; a people who continually provoke me to anger…”
But from where come these wicked desires that so easily tempt my people to bow their hearts before these false words/thoughts? Where come these desires to believe these lying words which bring with them nothing but unrest and misery? But who is able to see the evil in the words/thoughts that he is accustomed to living his life after? Who desires to repent of that which he thinks is right? Who is able to comprehend that every man’s life is lived according to the words/thoughts that he thinks to be right? Who is he who is able to see that his own words/thoughts are only enemies to the life that I desire for all men to be partakers of? I have come to reconcile man unto me, but how shall I reconcile death with life when my own people love death? How shall my people love me with all of their hearts and minds when their hearts and minds are filled with the elements of this world; the elements that only have a desire and affection for the things of “self”?
I JOHN 2:15 “Love not the world neither the things that are in the world. If any love the world the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the desire of the flesh, the desire of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world”.
JAMES 4:4 “You adulterers and adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with this world is enmity (Rom.8:7) with God? Therefore, whosever will make himself to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God. Do you think that the scripture says in vain that the spirit that dwells in us desires to envy”.
PSALM 38:19 “But my enemies are lively, and they are strong…”
But again I ask you, from where come these evil desires that tempt the hearts of men to submit themselves to believe the miserable counsels that come so naturally into the thinking of the carnal mind? From where come the desires that tempt my people to believe the lies that bring with their counsels nothing but fear, and anxiety, and worry? From where comes the desire that makes the lies of depression, of hopelessness, of loneliness, and of frustration to be friends with them. From where come these evil desires that entice my people to doubt my love, or to make light of my instructions, or to not believe my words? From where come the evil desires that entices men to trust in vain words/thoughts that never bring with them any change? From where come the wicked desires that entice my people to judge one another, or to find fault with one another, or to exalt themselves above another? From where come this perverted desire that deceives my people into believing that they can change the world when they powerless to change their own thoughts and desires? From where come the wicked desires that make it so pleasurable for my people to rebel or to contend with the heavenly Father who loves them so much? From where comes the desires that entice my people to find great pleasure in boasting of their own works, as well as in the speaking of the vain opinions that they form of themselves? From where comes the desire whereby my people love to hear the words of flattery and praise, and then close their ears to reject instruction and refuse correction? From where comes the desire that makes it such a delight for men to whine and complain? From where come the desires that entice my people to envy one another? Do you think that the scripture says in vain, “The spirit that dwells in us desires to envy”?
MATTHEW 22:4-5 “Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their own ways…”
JAMES 1:12 “Blessed is the man that endures temptation; for when he is tried he shall receive a crown of life, which the Lord has promised to them who love him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempts he any man: but every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own desires, and enticed. Then when desire has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren”.
Where could all of these foolish desires, wicked desires, and evil desires come from that so passionately burn in the hearts and minds of men until they are satisfied? Who he is who is able to comprehend that the strength and power to do foolish things, or evil things, or wicked things is found only in the desires to do them? Without the desire, from where could come the temptation? You know that Satan is the father of all lying words/thoughts, but was it his words that tempted Adam and Eve or was it the desire that burned in their hearts that tempted them; the desire to believe that Satan’s words were true? What power can be found in any of Satan’s words if there is no desire to believe any of them? Is it possible for that which is of this world to desire anything other than those things which are of this world? Who is a citizen of this world except those who are born subject to the desires of this world? Now do you understand that which I said, “My kingdom is not of this world”? Is it possible for God to rule in a kingdom where the desire in every man’s heart is enmity against God? I rule my kingdom with life and peace, not with death, or oppression, or bondage, or unrest.
JOHN 8:44 “You are of your father the Devil, and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and he abides not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speak a lie, he speaks from his own resources. He is a liar and the father of it”.
ROMANS 8:7 “For the carnal mind is enmity against God, and is not subject to the law of God, and indeed, it cannot be”.
JAMES 4:4-5 “You adulterers and adulteresses, do you not know that friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. Do you think that the scripture says in vain, “The spirit that dwells in us desires to envy?”
JOHN 18:36 “Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight so that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from here”.
From where come these desires that only have a love and consciousness for the being of “self”? From where come these strong desires that passionately burn in the hearts of men to be in control over their own lives? From where comes these desires that burn within the hearts of men to always be right in the thoughts you think and the words that you speak? From where comes the burning that dwells in all men to do their own will? From where come these desires whereby men desire to make a name for their own selves? From where come the desires whereby men delight in being their own god? Who can possibly save himself from the power and strength of these natural desires and lusts that burn so passionately in the hearts of all who are carnally minded?
II TIMOTHY 3:1-6 “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without temperance, brutal, despisers of those who are good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, and having a form of godliness but denying its power. From such people turn away!”
Consider the congregation of the dead; how they praise me with their lips and they will honor me with their mouths, but their hearts and minds are still subject to these worldly desires; and their love for me grows cold and colder as they yield themselves more and more to their desires to worship and serve the creature of “self”. These delight in leaning to their own understanding and expressing their own opinions of my words. See how they are wise in their own eyes as they love to justify their own works and deeds with the lying words that satisfy their own desires and affections. See how these also find pleasure in twisting my image into an image that agrees with their own opinions of me. They think nothing of making light of my words thoughts because they think that the counsels of their own words/thoughts are more important and more righteousness than mine are. In the congregation of the dead, I am nothing more than these lifeless dust particles that drift aimlessly about without any purpose. These are still captive to believe Satan’s words/thoughts because they are still in bondage to the worldly desires that continue to dwell in their hearts and minds. Would man of a sound mind would worship and serve vain dead idols? Yet, does not the congregation of the dead continue to bow before and serve the vain thoughts of their mind as though they are right and true? In vain they worship me, believing and obeying the vain thoughts that they believe. What is vain except the thoughts of man and what is dead except the word/thoughts of the carnal mind?
PROVERBS 21:16 “The man who wanders out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead”.
PROVERBS 8:36 “He who sins against me wrongs his own soul; and those who hate me (I am life) love death”.
PSALM 94:11 “The Lord knows the thoughts of man that they are vanity”.
ROMANS 8:20 “For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who has subjected the same in hope; because the creature itself shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God”.
JEREMIAH 4:14 “O Jerusalem, wash your heart from your wickedness that you may be saved. How long shall your vain thoughts lodge within you?”
I CORINTHIANS 8:1 “Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge (words/thoughts/opinions). Knowledge puffs up (the idol of “self”), but love edifies”.
JEREMIAH 13:10 “This evil people, who refuse to hear my words, who walk in the imagination (words/thoughts) of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.
Do you see how the idol worshippers delight in walking after their own imaginations of my words? Do you see how they delight in the work of their own hands, to walk in a show of hypocrisy? Do see how they seek to prove their own faith through an outward show of works; and outward show that has no agreement with the faith that stands in the power of God? From where come their desires to exalt themselves in their own righteousness; the righteousness that also brings division and strife among my people? From where come the desires that tempt my people to hide themselves from themselves; choosing rather to hide the truth from their own eyes as they quickly work to justify their own weaknesses, their own faults, their own sins, and their own iniquities rather than to submit them unto me for change? Why do these refuse to believe on the blood that I shed for them? Why do my people delight in boasting of their own goodness when there is none there? From where come these wicked desires that blind the eyes of my people, allowing for them pervert my words and corrupt and pollute the temple of God; which temple you are? By whose desires have my people filled my temple with the idols of “self”?
JEREMIAH 11:8-12 “Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked everyone in the imagination (words/thoughts) of their evil heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do; but they did them not. And the LORD said unto me, “A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, who refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers. Therefore thus says the LORD, “Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble”.
MATTHEW 6:1 Take heed that you do not do your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise you have no reward of your Father who is in heaven. Therefore when you do your alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.
MATTHEW 23:25 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like unto whited tombs, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous unto men but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity”.
PROVERBS 20:6 “Most men will proclaim his own goodness, but a faithful man who can find?”
I CORINTHIANS 3:16-21 “Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. Let no man deceive himself: If any man among you seems to be wise in this world, let him become a fool so that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He takes the wise in their own craftiness”. And again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain”. Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours”.
Can I show you my heart? Will you really believe me if I tell you of the grief that is in my heart? My heart grieves for all who remain captive to the dead thoughts of the carnal mind. My heart grieves for all those who remain in bondage to the worldly desires that yield themselves to the death of the carnal mind. I am grieved because I came into this world to give life, and to give it abundantly. I am grieved because my people have refused me, having no desire to be changed into my likeness, for my nature is life, not death. I am grieved because my people refuse to seek to know my nature. I am grieved because my people have not chosen my heart to be their religion, but they have chosen rather to make the pleasures and the desires of their own hearts to be their religion. I am so grieved that my people have continued to choose for death to rule over the thoughts of their minds instead of the life of my love, my faith, my joy, my peace, my care, and the life of my nature, which is in my Spirit. My heart is grieved for the congregation of the dead who do not believe that I am the resurrection and the life; that do not believe that I am able to destroy all the death which defiles my temple, and then raise them up in the life in my Spirit.
JEREMIAH 9:6 “Your habitation is in the midst of deceit (the lying words/thought of the carnal mind). Through deceit they refuse to know me”.
GENESIS 6:5,6 “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination (word/thought) of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord repented that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at this heart”.
ROMANS 8:6 “For the carnal mind is death and the spiritual mind is life and peace”.
My heart grieves for those who think that they are going to obtain entrance into my kingdom because they have preached and prophesied in my name, but they have refused my heart. My heart grieves for those who think that they are going to find entrance into my kingdom because they have tithed or because of the wonderful works that they have done, but they have refused my heart. My heart grieves for those who think that they are going to find entrance into my kingdom because they fasted or cast out demons, but they have refused my heart. My heart grieves for those who travel land and sea to win souls to me, but they have refused my heart. My heart is grieved for all those who have made their own head, with its carnal words/thoughts to be the head of my body instead of allowing for me to be the head of my body; for you are not your own. My heart grieves for those who choose to esteem and exalt themselves rather than to be converted into my likeness, to be as humble as a little child. My heart grieves for those who ask for me to forgive them of their sins, but through unbelief and ignorance of my power and love, refuse to ask for me to change to the desires of their heart and the carnal thoughts that led them to sin. Only my heart is able to make a man free from the deceitful and wicked heart of man. Only my words/thoughts are able to set at liberty the man who is captive to death. I am grieved because I declared so plainly and clearly that if any man wanted to follow after me, then it was going to be required of him to take up his cross and follow me; but I am grieved because so many have not made my words to be a lamp unto their feet nor a guide unto their paths.
MATTHEW 7:21 “Not every one that says unto me, “Lord, Lord”, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but only he that does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name; and in thy name have cast out devils; and in thy name done many wonderful works?” And then will I profess unto them, “I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity”. Therefore whosoever hears these sayings (words/thoughts) of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man who built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock”.
Luke 13:24-28 “Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house has risen up, and has shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, “Lord, Lord, open unto us”. And he shall answer and say unto you, “I know you not where you are from”. Then shall you begin to say, “We have eaten and drunk in your presence; and you have taught in our streets”. But he shall say, “I tell you, I do know where you are from. Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity”. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
MATTHEW 22:29 “Jesus said, “You do err, not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God”.
One last time I ask you; from where come these desires that so easily deceive my people into choosing death for themselves instead of life? From where come these desires that deceive my people into worshipping and serving dead idols and false doctrines, which are powerless to heal, to change the heart, or to deliver from dead thoughts? From where come these evil and wicked desires that entice my people to pervert my ways and to make light of my words? From where come the desires that tempt my people to refuse my instruction and to hate my correction? From where come the desires that steal away my love out of the hearts of my people? Now hearken unto me, and I will show you the source of all these desires as well as the source of every foolish, every evil, and every wicked desire; for these desires are the strength and power of the kingdom of darkness; the strength and the power that arouses passionate desires in the inhabitants of this world to believe only the lies of Satan. When I breathed life into Adam, he became a living being; a being that lived, that moved, and that had all of his being in fellowship and communion with God. I breathed my words/thoughts into him, they came as the words which were spirit and life; and the spirit that I breathed into him was my wisdom. My wisdom is the breath of my power for life; but there is another wisdom, the wisdom that is of this world, and there is no breath in this wisdom for it only has a desire for death.
PROVERBS 8:12 “I, wisdom (wisdom speaks from here to the end of the chapter) dwell with prudence….35 whosoever finds me finds life and shall obtain favor of the Lord”.
My wisdom is the matrix from which all life is birthed. My wisdom is matrix from which the love for my truth is birthed. Only by my wisdom are my people able to delight themselves in my words and keep them out of love. My wisdom is the matrix that brings forth spirit and life; and by my wisdom was Adam formed after my image; the image of the Words of God. My wisdom has desires for those things which only come from above; and it has no agreement or pleasure with the vanity and foolishness of this world. My wisdom loves me and delights in communion and fellowship with me. For fellowship I created Adam by my wisdom, and by my wisdom I breathed my words/thoughts into him; and after the very image of my words/thoughts was he created; that is, by the words/thoughts that came forth by my Spirit. By my wisdom I brought forth a man who was like-minded with me. By my wisdom, Adam and I walked daily in communion and fellowship with one another; and you know that nothing that is of this world walks with me because it has no agreement with me.
II THESSALONIANS 2:7-13 (AMP) “For the mystery of lawlessness (iniquity (KJ; the work of those who are wise in this world; that hidden principle of rebellion against constituted authority) is already at work in the world, [but it is] restrained only until he who restrains is taken out of the way. And then shall the lawless one (the antichrist; which is the wisdom of this world) will be revealed and the Lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of His mouth and (KJ shall destroy with the brightness of his appearing) bring it to an end by His appearing at His coming [I Cor.1:19]. The coming [of the lawless one, the antichrist (again, the wisdom of this world)] is through the activity and working of Satan and will be attended by great power (desires and passions) and with all sorts of [pretended] miracles and signs and delusive marvels–[all of them] lying wonders–And by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing (going to perdition) because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved. Therefore God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false in order that all may be judged and condemned who did not believe in [who refused to adhere to, trust in, and rely on] the Truth, but [instead] took pleasure in unrighteousness. But we, brethren beloved by the Lord, ought and are obligated [as those who are in debt] to give thanks always to God for you, because God chose you from the beginning as His firstfruits (first converts) for salvation through the sanctifying work of the [Holy] Spirit and [your] belief in (adherence to, trust in, and reliance on) the Truth.
JOHN 14:23 Jesus answered and said, “If a man loves me, he will keep my words; and my Father will love him, and we will come and make our abode with him”.
PSALM 40:8 “I delight to do your will, O God; yea, your law (Rom.8:2: the law of the spirit of life) is within my heart”.
EPHESIANS 3:8-9 “Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; and to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world has been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ”.
I CORINTHIANS 1:30 (NKJ) “But of him are you in Christ Jesus, who became from us wisdom from God….”
ISAIAH 11:2 “And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him (Jesus), the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD”
AMOS 3:3 “How can two walk together except they be agreed?”
In the beginning, I brought forth my wisdom as the light that in the darkness; and that darkness was the wisdom of this world. Then Satan came lusting to sow the seed of his lying words/thoughts into Eve’s mind; for Satan knew that his words would awaken a giant desire that had been lying asleep in both Adam and Eve’s since Adam was formed; a giant that could only be awakened by his lying words. Adam was formed from the elements of the earth, not from the Spirit of the Lord; and it was these worldly elements that the seed of his lies would arouse from their sleep: the elements of the wisdom of this world, natural understanding, and the carnal knowledge. For these three elements are of the darkness, and they can only agree with and desire to believe the lies of the ruler of darkness. Satan knew that their earthy vessels would be well nurtured and fertile ground that would make his lies desirable to believe and pleasurable to make right. The lies that once believed would then allow for sin and the death to take their rule over Adam and Eve’s minds and hearts. He knew that it would only be but a matter of time before the passions of this world’s wisdom would awaken and overcome them with her burning and passionate desires.
MATTHEW 13:25 “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and then went his way”.
GENESIS 3:6 “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat”.
PROVERBS 3:7 “Be not wise in your own eyes…”
For it was Satan’s words/thoughts that awakened the wisdom of this world that had been lying asleep in them. For the wisdom of this world only has a desire to believe the lies of Satan; and all of his lies only focus on the being of “self”. For out of the wisdom of this world comes forth all of the desires of the flesh, the desires of the eyes, and the pride of life; and all who are given to her will live, and move, and have their being serving the ungodly desires of creature rather than the desires and pleasures of the Creator. What greater lie could Satan have spoken than those lying words/thoughts that would arouse in them same desires and passions that had already overcome Lucifer to believe that he could become as God? For Satan well knew how he himself was so easily overcome by these same desires when he was corrupted by this same wisdom; for the wisdom of this world only delights in doing those things that satisfy “self” desires; that is, for one to do his own will, to walk in the way that is right in his own eyes, and to make a name for himself. For the wisdom of this world loves the being of “self”, and she lives and moves and has all her purpose in the desires that delight in serving this ungodly creature which has no passion or desire for God. For the wisdom of this world is the matrix from which comes every unclean, wicked, profane, evil, and abominable desire and passion; and they all come forth to join themselves to the lies of Satan. When Satan’s words awoke the wisdom of this world in Eve, he awoke all of the desires of this world. She is the natural desires, pleasures, and passions that burn in the hearts of all who are carnally minded.
I JOHN 2:15 “Love not the world neither the things that are in the world. If any love the world the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the desire of the flesh, the desire of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world”.
The wisdom of this world is the entity from which all ungodly desires, pleasures, lusts, and affections come from; and her desires, pleasures, lusts, and affections are the strength of her power. The wisdom of this world is the sinful nature of the flesh. All those who commune, agree, and fellowship with her are in the darkness because light has no fellowship or communion with the darkness. She is the darkness that dwells in Satan as well as the darkness that dwells in the children of ignorance. She is the uncleanness in the unclean; she is the wickedness in the wicked; she is the evil that is in the evil; and she is the profaneness in the profane. She is the deceitfulness that makes the lies of Satan desirable to believe. She is the passion and desire to believe Satan’s lies; and Satan is the liar that satisfies her passions and desires. Satan is the father of all lies and she is the mother who nurtures his lies with desire until they become that which is pleasurable for one to believe; and her children are all of the lies that come forth when his words and her desires are regarded and believed on. She passionately loves all of her children, which are the words/thoughts that give birth to all that is unclean, wicked, deceitful, profane, evil, and abominable. Her desires and pleasure are that which all men know by nature; for all who commune and agree with her desires and pleasures are like unto her. The wisdom of this world is the illusion of lies that are used by men to justify her children. She is also the illusion of lies that men use to build their own self-images upon.
EPHESIANS 5:8-11 “For you were sometimes darkness, but now are you light in the Lord: walk as children of light.…11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but rather reprove them”.
ISAIAH 47:10 “You have trusted in your wickedness; you have said, “No one sees me. Your wisdom and your knowledge (words/thoughts) have perverted you; and you have said in your heart, “I am”; and there is none else besides me”.
JEREMIAH 4:14 “O Jerusalem, wash your heart from wickedness, that you may be saved. How long shall vain thoughts lodge within you?”
JEREMIAH 4:22 “My people are foolish, they do not know me….they are “wise” to do evil, and to do good they have no knowledge”.
ISAIAH 64:6 “We are all as an unclean thing and all of our righteousness are as dirty rags (menstruous clothes)”.
PROVERBS 21:2 “Every way of man is right in his own eyes”
PROVERBS 3:7 “Be not wise in your own eyes”.
JAMES 3:14-16 “But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descends not from above, but is earthly, sensual, and devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work
The wisdom of this world is the darkness. She is the spirit that led Lucifer and the angels by her desires to fall in heaven. She is the spirit that led by her desires the fall of man upon the earth. She is the spirit that burned with desire in both Lucifer, the angels, and Adam and Eve to believe the lie; the lie that says that there can be more than one God. She is also the spirit that by her desires leads many hearts to fall from the grace that has been given to them through the blood of Christ. She is the spirit that seduced Esau to give up his inheritance for a small piece of meat. She is the spirit that tempted Lot’s wife to look back at the life she was leaving behind. She is the spirit that deceived Saul to bow his knee to honor the words of the people rather than to honor the words of God. She is the spirit that caused all of Israel, except David, to cower in fear before Goliath; and she was also the spirit in Goliath that defied God. She is the spirit that puffed up Sennacherib when he attempted to threaten and intimidate Hezekiah. She is the spirit that confused Judas. She is the spirit that deceived Peter into believing that he had the faith that would allow for him to go to prison for Christ’ sake and that deceived him into believing that he would even die for the testimony of his name. She is the wicked counselor who overcame Ananias and Sapphira. She is the entity that Jesus wrestled with and overcame in the garden, as well as the same entity that then led others to then crucify him. All those who have her are always wise in their own eyes, and they are always convinced that the way they see things is the right way those things should be seen; yet the way that seems right is only right in the sight of those who are blind. The deceitfulness and the strength of her power is found in that she is able to make the ways that lead to death and destruction to seem like the right things for me to do.
EZEKIEL 28:17 “Your (Lucifer) heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you have corrupted your wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold you”.
PROVERBS 16:25 “There is a way that seems right, but the end thereof is the way of death”.
The wisdom of this world sits as a queen over her world of darkness; and chaos is her delight and rule. From her throne proceed all of her desires and pleasures that tempt my people to believe only the lying words/thoughts of Satan; the words/thoughts that inhabit the imaginations of the carnal mind. None of the thoughts that she desires to believe have any likeness with the thoughts of God. She is a world without order that is ruled by her wild and untamed imaginations; a world of disorder and lawlessness where every man does that which seems right in his own eyes. She is a world of imaginations where there is never any thought to acknowledge the sovereignty of God or to ask for any guidance or help. None of her desires will ever be accompanied with any counsel that instructs one to bow his heart before God. Every man’s imaginations are the idols of his heart; and it is by her desires and pleasures that they are formed, and then it is by her pleasure that they are then exalted to be more righteous than God. By her reasonings and excuses she makes her counsels to appear to be much more important than the counsel of God. She is the chaos and confusion in world where each man believes he is right in his thinking; yet, there are no two who agree. She is a world of disorder; a world where men continually get angry and frustrated when things do not go according to the way that they were imagined to go. She is the imagined sovereignty that keeps each man in bondage to the delusional state of thinking that he is “I am”, and that he can take control over the circumstances and situations in his life. She is the counsel of words/thoughts in the minds of men’s imaginations that never acknowledge the preeminence of God. She it is who keeps the children of God from drawing closer to their heavenly Father who loves them all.
Chaos: a state of things in which chance is supreme ; especially : the confused unorganized state of primordial matter (the darkness) before the creation of distinct forms: a state of utter confusion: a confused mass or mixture.
JAMES 3:15-16 “This wisdom descends not from above, but is earthly, sensual, and devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
JEREMIAH 4:22,23 “”For My people are foolish, they have not known me. They are senseless children, and they have no understanding. They are “wise to do evil”, but to do good they have no knowledge. I beheld the earth (earthy man), and indeed it was without form, and void (no order); and the heavens, they had no light”.
JEREMIAH 13:10 “This evil people, who refuse to hear my words, who walk in the imagination (words/thoughts) of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing”.
GENESIS 6:5 “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that ever imagination of the thought of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that he had made man on the earth and he was grieved in his heart”.
II CORINTHIANS 10:3-6 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh (for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the casting down of strongholds), casting down imaginations and every high thing that is exalts itself against the knowledge (words/thoughts) of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ; being ready to avenge all disobedience, when your obedience shall be made full”.
It is only by the wisdom of this world that men are made to be friends with this world; for the wisdom of this world is the “only” entity from which all worldly desires come from. She is the darkness, and the darkness consists of her ignorance of her alienation from God, her separation from God, and her hatred for all things of God. She is the entity of darkness that does not know God, that does not respect God, that does not trust God, that does not honor God, that does not believe God, that does not obey God, and that does not love God. All those who delight in her exist in a world that is alienated and separated from the abundant life of God. Her habitation is the darkness that dwells in all those words/thoughts that abide in the carnal mind. She is the words/thoughts of death. She is nature of rebellion, and by her the children of God refuse to hearken to the voice of their God. She is the enmity of the carnal mind that will never subject itself in obedience and humility before God, and she can never subject herself to any of the truths or life of God’s words. Even Satan and his demons believe that there is only one God, and they are also subject to Son of God, as well as to the limitations that God uses to restrain them. It is not so with wisdom of this world, for she cannot even believe that there is one God other than the being of “self”.
JAMES 4:4 “You adulterers and adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with this world is enmity (Rom.8:7) with God? Therefore, whosever will make himself to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God”.
EPHESIANS 4:17,18 “This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind (words/thoughts), having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them because of the blindness of their heart”.
JEREMIAH 16:12 “And you have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, you walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart that they may not hearken unto me”.
JOHN 3:19 “This is the condemnation, that light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light because their deeds were evil”.
The wisdom of this world is that which makes all men to be as beasts in the sight of God; for all who are subject to her lust and desires are like unto her. She is the enmity against God; and by her she fills the thoughts of the mind with all manner of rebellion, unbelief, hatred, rejection, bitterness, hesitation, refusal, fearfulness, blame, scorn, as well as the making light of all of the words/thoughts that proceed forth from God/Jesus Christ. She is all that doubts God. She is the unbelief that mocks God. She is the murmuring and complaining against God when he will not bow to her desires. She it is that overcame the children of Israel in the wilderness with her murmuring and complaining against God that led to the destruction of many who agreed with her. Just as she did then so also does she do now in all those who remain carnally minded. Her desires are seen in the works of all those who do not believe that all things are possible for God/Jesus Christ. She closes the ears of those who refuse to hear my voice. She is the stiffness in the neck of those who refuse to turn to me. She is the spirit that hates Jesus and that persecutes those who take up their cross and follow after me.
ECCLESIASTES 3:18 “I said in my heart concerning the estate of sons of men that God might manifest them, that they might see that they themselves are beasts”.
NAHUM 1:11 “There is one (the wisdom of this world) come out of you that imagines evil against the Lord (unbelief, doubts, bitterness, fear, etc.), a wicked counselor….now I will break his yoke from off of you and burst his bonds in sunder”.
JOHN 7:7 “The world cannot hate you, but me it hates because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil”
As Satan is the adversary of man, so is the wisdom of this world the adversary of God, for she is never able to agree with anything of God/Jesus. She is the spirit of antichrist, the spirit that can never believe or obey any of the words/thoughts of God. By me were all things created, and there is nothing that is that was not created by me. Yet, when death entered into the world by her, all creation was taken captive to her. She is mortality and death; the mortality and death that is ignorant of immortality and life. I came into this world, and the world which was created by me did not know me. I came to my own children, and neither did they receive me. For by reason of the wisdom of this world, the creation has despised and rejected me, even though all of creation moans and groans to be free from mortality and death. When I came into this world, those who were wise in their own eyes saw no outward beauty in my appearance to be desired; and neither did they see any outward show of righteousness to meet the approval of their eyes; for all were blinded by the sight of the wisdom of this world. My Father even spoke from heaven saying, “This is my Son in whom I am well pleased”; yet, by reason of the wisdom of this world, the children of this world and the children of Israel could find nothing about me that was pleasing to them; for those who are wise in their own eyes cannot interpret God, not the things of God.
JOHN 1:10 “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world did not know him. He came to his own people and his own did not receive him”.
I CORINTHIANS 1:21 (AMP) For when the world with all its earthly wisdom failed to perceive and recognize and know God by means of its own philosophy, God in His wisdom was pleased through the foolishness of preaching [salvation, procured by Christ and to be had through Him], to save those who believed (who clung to and trusted in and relied on Him).
I CORINTHIANS 2:7 “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory”.
ROMANS 8:22 “For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together unto now”.

|The wisdom of this world is the nature of the darkness of ignorance of God. By nature, the wisdom of this world mocks me. By nature, the wisdom of this world makes light of my words. By nature, the wisdom of this world despises humility and meekness. By nature, the wisdom of this world spit on me and cursed me. By nature, the wisdom of this world hates me because I am the truth, not the lies that she desires to hear. By nature, the wisdom of this world bears false witness against me. By nature, the wisdom of this world is ashamed of my name. By nature, the wisdom of this world ripped the skin from my body by her stripes. By nature, the wisdom of this world always betrays me. By nature, the wisdom of this world persecutes my children. By nature, the wisdom of this world believes that it is always right and refuses to acknowledge weakness or faults. By nature, the wisdom of this world crucified me. And by nature, the wisdom of this world has deceived many into believing that they are accepted by God, even thought they worship and serve in him in the manner that is pleasing and acceptable in their own eyes. She is the spirit of antichrist that works in the all of the children of disobedience. By her, the scriptures are perverted and corrupted with men’s interpretations and opinions; thus rendering the words of God to be nothing but useless words because they are not joined to God through his wisdom. By her, the scriptures are perverted to place grievous works and heavy burdens upon the shoulders of men, and not the freedom that allows for God to perform his great and mighty works. By her, the scriptures are used to arouse the ungodly lusts that judges, finds fault with, and accuses others. All they who have this ungodly wisdom for their mother will be nurtured and strengthened to continue to walk after the desires, the affections, the lusts, and the pleasures of the Devil; for she it is who mothers the same desires in him.
JEREMIAH 4:22 “My people are foolish, for they do not know me. They have no understanding and they are senseless children. They are wise to do evil and to do good they have no knowledge”.
PROVERBS 3:6 “Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil”
II Peter 2:9-15 “The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise that government. Presumptuous are they, self-willed, and they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they do not understand; and they shall utterly perish in their own corruption; and they shall receive the reward of unrighteousness as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; having eyes full of adultery, and they cannot cease from sin. Beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness”.
MATTHEW 6:23 Jesus said, “But if your eye be evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you be darkness, then how great is that darkness!”
LUKE 11:35 Jesus said, “Take heed that the light that is in you be not darkness!”
The wisdom of this world is not one, but rather she is many because she is the mother of all lies; lies that have no agreement or fellowship amongst themselves. Consider how the Pharisees and scribes, aroused by her lusts for malice in their hearts, sought to find two witnesses who would testify against me, yet they could not find any whose testimonies completely agreed with each other; and when they thought they had, it was only because by reason of this worldly wisdom that they could not properly interpret the words that I spoke before them. Even to this day, look how the wisdom of this world has kept so much division in my church by reason of the strife and contention that is only birthed by her. What could bring about so much division except that each man believes that the way he sees and interprets the scriptures is surely the truth? There is only one truth, and there are no divisions or schisms in the truth; and there is only one wisdom that believes the truth; the wisdom that comes from above and that is freely given to those who desire to know the truth. Whose wisdom is then present when there are contentions, strivings, arguments, envyings, schisms, divisions, jealousies, and fights; is it the wisdom of the God, or is it the wisdom of antichrist? Whose wisdom speaks on this wise, “Let us agree to disagree”? How can two walk together except they agree?
I CORINTHIANS 3:1 “And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto you were not able to bear it, neither yet now are you able. For you are still carnal: for there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions; are you not carnal, and walk as men?”
The wisdom of this world can never agree with any of the truth of God because she only has desires to believe lies. For when the lies of Satan that are joined with the wisdom of this world, it brings forth interpretations and opinions of men’s words/thoughts that only seem right in the eyes of those who are carnally minded; and men’s interpretations and opinions only sow strife, division, discord, contention, and schisms among the members of my own body. Do you see and understand now that denominations are only birthed out of the lies that Satan uses to keep division among my people? Why would Satan even bother to do such a thing? Satan and the wisdom of this world know that they are only able to keep their thrones in those who remain carnally minded; that they will lose all of their authority and power among the members of my body, when the church comes together in unity; for when the members of my body come together in the unity of my Spirit, then shall all of the powers of Satan and wisdom of antichrist, shall be broken, and their thrones and reign shall be broken. No man can have 2 masters; for either he will walk after the wisdom of antichrist, or he will walk after the wisdom of God.
JAMES 3:13-16 “Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him show out of a good conversation (words/thoughts) his works with meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descends not from above, but is earthly, sensual, and devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work”.
I CORINTHIANS 12:25 “There should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another”.
I CORINTHIANS 1:10 “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment”.
REVELATION 2:12-14 “And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write, “These things say he who has the sharp two-edged sword, “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit fornication”.
So choose you this day whose words/thoughts you desire to serve, whether it be Christ, the wisdom of God, or antichrist, the wisdom of this world. Can you hear what I am saying to my church? I am not asking you to try to do the work that will bring about unity in my body; I am only asking you to choose whose wisdom it is that you desire to have directing your words/thoughts. I freely and liberally give my wisdom to those who choose to have her. If you love divisions, denominations, contentions, traditions, strife and arguments, then choose antichrist so that you may continue to walk as a beast before me, because the laws, the counsels, and that doctrines that you have honored and believed until this day have been powerless to free you from her desires and pleasures. But if you desire to be a member of my body, and my body is only one, then choose Christ, whom I have made to be the wisdom of God for you this day, the gift of my life.
I CORINTHIANS 1:30 (NKJ) “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God…”
LUKE 11:49-50 “Therefore also said the wisdom of God (Jesus), “I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute: that the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation”.
EPHESIANS 4:1-6 “I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation wherewith you are called, with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all”.
The wisdom of this world is the darkness that has no communion or agreement with the light of God. She is the mother of all disagreements, all fights, all contention, all wars, all arguments, all fornication, all bitterness, all divorce, all strife, and all disobedience against God and against all things that are of God. She is the spirit that works in all false prophets and false teachers to apply their natural understanding to the words of God. She is the spirit from which all false witnesses against God get their counsel from. She is the wisdom that speaks on this wise, “God has forsaken you”; “God does not love you”; “This is impossible, even for God”; “God desires to destroy you”; “God will do this for others but he will not do it for you”; “God does not like you”; “God is going to do evil to you”; “God is dead”; “God will not hear you”; “God is too busy for you”; “You have failed God”; “God is going to condemn you”; God will not help you”; “God has abandoned you”; “Surely you do not think that God will show you mercy or forgive you”. She is the spirit that discourages, disappoints, and that saddens with her counsels. She it is who loves to kick those who are down and weak. She is the being of hopelessness. It is by reason of her lying counsels that the children of God do not cast their cares upon the heavenly Father; upon the heavenly Father who unconditionally loves all and desires to help them in all that they do. She relentlessly seeks to overthrow the faith and the belief of the children of God with her words. She is the spirit that delights in her attempts to seduce and entice my people to steal away any and all affection that they may have for God. She is always there armed with many types of devices to distract the attention of the children from the love of God, to turn them from the strait and narrow path that leads to life. She labors fervently in her devices to keep the children of God from drawing closer to him.
LUKE 11:35 Jesus said, “Take heed that the light which is in you be not darkness”.
I PETER 5:6,7 “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you”.
The wisdom of this world is the darkness that was in the beginning; the darkness that the voice of God spoke light into; the light that brought life into this world. The wisdom of this world is the entity of death; the entity from which all the imaginations the carnal mind come forth from. None of her thoughts have any friendship or communion with God. She is the death that returned after the fall to sit upon her throne in the words/ thoughts of all who are carnally minded. She is the last enemy that is to be destroyed. She is the unseen mortality and darkness that rules over the atoms of the creation; and all creation moans and groans to be freed her. She is the mortality that brings the change that all men hate and dread to see as they see the days of their youth pass into the infirmity of the aged. She is the sickness in the sick, the infirmity in the old, and the weakness in the flesh. She is the corruption in all that is mortal. She is the winds that blow, tossing her subjects to and fro with counsels of confusion, and uncertainty, and chance; as she continues to rule her world with chaos. She loves to send floods of her counsels into the carnal mind to swamp it with thoughts that confuse, that frustrate, that provoke, and that intimidate. She is the relentless waves of anxieties, and worries, and stress, as well the many different kinds of fears that overcome the carnally minded. She is loneliness. She is death, and she leads in the way that seems right because it leads to her. She is the yesterdays that never were, the tomorrows that never are, and she is the now which none are ever satisfied with. She is the illusion that makes important the cares of this life. All those who are subjected to her are like unto her.
GENESIS 1:1-5 “In the beginning God created the Heaven and the earth; and the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters; and God said, “Let there be light”: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
II PETER 1:19 “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto you will do well to that take heed to, as unto a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts”.
ROMANS 8:22 “For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together unto now”.
All of the counsels that come forth from the wisdom of this world are nothing but lying vanities that make men worthless; yet, she, by reason of deceitful desires and Satan’s lies, deceives men into believing that they are something great and important in their own eyes. She is the 1st love of the children of darkness; a children in whom there is no light to reveal the evil in the imaginations of her counsels. She hides herself in the works of iniquity; the works whereby she justifies all works and deeds by her reasons and lies. By her works, many will exalt themselves in their outward show of righteous works, so that they may be exalted and glorified in the sight of men. She is the darkness that appears as the light in each man’s thinking; the darkness that deceives each man with the illusion that he alone is right in his thinking. She says she is never wrong, but she is never right; and she thinks evil with all who disagree with her. She is the illusion that deceives men into believing that they must try to perfect vanity by the works of their own hands. O the illusions of vanity, the idols of ones own self-image; how greatly are men deceived by her desires to make themselves to be something that they are not. It is only by the wisdom of this world that men are deceived into believing that they are able to make themselves something righteous and great in the sight of God. Their desire for vanity is their idol worship; and their works are done to satisfy their desires. The idols of man are the works of the wisdom of this world, who works to deceive all men into believing and exalting the images of “self”. Vanities of vanities; for all of the works of this worlds wisdom is man’s iniquity and appearances of vanity.
ISAIAH 44:13 “The craftsman stretches out his rule, he marks one out with chalk; he fashions it with a plane, he marks it out with the compass, and makes it like the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man, that it may remain in the house”.
PSALM 39:5,6 “…truly every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah. Surely every man walks in a vain show….11 when you with rebuke do correct a man for his iniquity, you make his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah.
MATTHEW 23:27-28 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are like unto whited tombs, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead bones and of all uncleanness. Even so, you outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
MATTHEW 7:21-23 “Not every one who says unto me, “Lord, Lord”, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in your name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works?” And then will I profess unto them, “I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity”.
II THESSALONIANS 2:3-11 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he, as God, sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Remember you not that when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now you know what withholds that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now lets will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all of his power, and signs, and lying wonders, and with all the deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth”.
The wisdom of this world is the power that deceives because she gives the lust to believe lies; and her lust is the power that makes the lies of Satan desirable and pleasurable to believe. It is only by reason of her seductions, enchantments, and enticements that all lying words/thoughts are allowed entrance and welcomed into the thinking of the carnal mind; the same mind that allows in uncertainty, misery, failure, unrest, sadness, fear, corruption, and trouble into its thinking. Even so, she is still the desire for control and vain glory, and she is still able to deceive men who have the same unsoundness of mind that allows for them to be friends with death, that they can make the creature to be equal to or greater than the Creator. The wisdom of this world is pure foolishness in the sight of God. She is the way that leads into foolishness; and from foolishness she leads into insanity; and from insanity she leads to destruction by madness.
I CORINTHIANS 3:19 “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God…”
PSALM 52:2-5 “Your tongue (that which expresses your words/thoughts) devises mischiefs (evil); like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. You love evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah. You love all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue. God shall likewise destroy you for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place (the carnal mind), and root you out of the land of the living. Selah”.
The spirit of antichrist leads many of my sheep to refuse to take heed to the counsels and instructions of my voice. For she is that spirit that is expertly skilled in the lies that teach the art of self-justification; the justification that deceives my people into believing that I will be pleased with their good deeds or the works of the law that they have done; yet, these are the very deeds and works that are an abomination in my sight”, says the Lord. “She is the lies that lead many in their fall from grace as they seek to justify themselves through the work of their own hands. For the lies of self-justification are her highest form of deception, seeing that self-justification only blinds men from seeing the truth about their own faults, sins, and weaknesses; the very deeds and works that my blood justifies. She is the wisdom that creates and forms excuses, or reasonings, or the words that bring forth misplaced blame; words that deceive one into believing that her counsels are the way to escape any guilt or blame for any faults, sins or weaknesses. Those who are self-justified are those who trust “self” with all their heart.
LUKE 18:9-14 “And Jesus spoke this parable unto certain ones who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: “Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, “God, I thank you that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice a week and I give tithes of all that I possess”. And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as lift his eyes unto heaven, but beat upon his breast, saying, “God be merciful to me a sinner”. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for everyone that exalts himself shall be abased; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted”.
GALATIANS 2:16 “Know this that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by the faith of Jesus Christ; even we have believed in Jesus Christ that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law shall no man be justified”.
ROMANS 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
GALATIANS 5:4 “Christ has become of no effect unto you whosoever of you who are justified by the law (work of antichrist); you are fallen from grace”.
The wisdom of this world always works to justify all of her children. She is the mother of Legion; and all of her children are named for the nature of the work that they do: envy, bitterness, loneliness, guilt, arguments, covetousness, worry, fears, sorrow, panic, cruelty, contention, complaints, confusion, greed, hatred, spitefulness, pride, hopelessness, strife, murder, anxiety, self-glory, impatience, unbelief, adultery, malice, hypocrisy, depression, doubt, disappointment, arrogance, sadness, frustration, boredom, meanness, fornication, stress, evil suspicions, thefts, failure, dread, or self-condemnation. She it is who nurtures her children, the seed of Satan’s lying words/thoughts, until they are believed on; until they are birthed into the thinking of a man as those lively, healthy particles that honored and esteemed in those who are carnally minded. She nurtures his seed out of her own desires and affections to believe his lies; lies that only receive power and come to life after they are believed on.
GALATIANS 5:19-21 “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery (friend of this world/Jam.4:4), fornication, uncleanness (self-righteousness/Isa.64:6), lasciviousness (lack of restraint in conversation), idolatry, witchcraft (rebellion/I Sam.15:23), hatred, contention, wrath, jealousies, strife, divisions, heresies (opinions), envying, murders, drunkenness, revelling, and such like: of the which I told you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
EPHESIANS 5:3-6 “But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becomes saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
The wisdom of this world never ceases in her work to justify her children; laboring in her attempts to make the counsels of her words/thoughts to appear as the right things to do or the right words to speak in the daily situations and circumstances that arise in life. Her justifications are the righteousness of the children of darkness, always supplying for them various excuses, and imaginations, and witty words/thoughts, as well as all manner of reasonings whereby she is able to justify all of the evil that men do. She says, “Peace, peace” with her counsels in her attempts to quiet the mind that is troubled by the guilt of her evil deeds. She is even the illusion of thoughts that deceive men into believing that they are able to justify and balance out their evil deeds with the good works that they do. The way that seems right is the way of self-justification; and this is the way that all men walk in who do not seek to know the Lord. The deceitfulness and the power of the wisdom of this world is found in those who do not seek God out of faith, because they are blind to see any need to seek for God. She is able to make the ways that lead to death and destruction to appear as though they are the right words to speak and the right works to do, having no need for God. There are no changes in the desires of the heart of those who justify themselves.
LUKE 7:30-35 Jesus said, “But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves (the idol of their self-image), being not baptized of him”. And the Lord said, “Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? And to what are they like? They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, “We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced”; “We have mourned to you, and you have not wept”. For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and you said, “He had a devil”. The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and you say, “Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!” But wisdom is justified of all her children”.
PROVERBS 16:25 “There is a way that seems right but the end thereof are the ways of death”.
The wisdom of this world is well-armed with many different types of devices in her war against God as she keeps waging war in the imaginations of the carnal mind of those who resist her words/thoughts. She is relentless as she battles to diminish and overthrow the counsels of God’s words/thoughts. She is prepared to fight to the death, lest she lose her habitation and her throne. She, being the spirit of antichrist, that entity that opposes God, brings forth the desires that hate to receive any of his correction; for the Lord’s correction dethrones her of her power. She is the passion of rebellion that burns in the hearts of the children of disobedience to hinder them from receiving any of their heavenly Father’s gifts, or blessings, or works. She is the fiery flames of desire that burn with hatred, and scorn, and rejection towards all who oppose her own will; for those who do not oppose her will never accept the will of God which comes from heaven. She is the desires and the passions that continually tempt the creatures of God to sin.
II CORINTHIANS 10:3 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ and having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled”.
PROVERBS 8:12 “I, wisdom, dwell with prudence and I find out knowledge of witty inventions”.
The wisdom of this world is also the spirit of harlotry; for she is mother of all desires for the things of this world; the desires that the citizens of this world know by nature. She it is that is always tempting my people to go a whoring from me after the desires and the pleasures of the being of “self”. She is the mother of all fornication and whoredoms, and by reason of her desires, my people are tempted to yield to the lies of Satan. For when desire is conceived and then joined with Satan’s lies, it brings forth sin; and sin when it is finished, brings forth the children of death; the thoughts that inhabit the carnal mind. She is the harlot who dresses herself with outward appearances of beauty and righteousness to entice the children of God to the blood unto her deeds. Remember how she bewitched the Galatians? Remember how she seduced the children of Israel into believing the lies that say that righteousness comes forth by the works of the law, when in truth, all that was brought forth were the iniquities of self-righteousness? She loves to deceive all men with the lies that say that God is pleased with the best efforts that a man can do of himself. Who is the adulterer and the adulteress except those who love Satan’s lies and her desires; for the two being joined together bring forth the sins of this world; the sins that entitle many to be the citizens of this world.
JAMES 4:4 “You adulterers and adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with this world is enmity (Rom.8:7) with God? Therefore, whosoever will make himself to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God. Do you think that the scripture says in vain that the spirit that dwells in us lusts to envy”.
HOSEA 4:11,12 (AMP) “Harlotry and wine and new wine take away the heart and the mind and the spiritual understanding. My people [habitually] “ask counsel” of their [senseless] wood [idols], and their staff [of wood] gives them oracles and instructs them. For the spirit of harlotry (wisdom of this world) has led them astray and they have played the harlot, withdrawing themselves from subjection to their God”.
GALATIANS 3:1 “O foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish, having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?”
The wisdom of this world is the harlot who tempts my people with her desires to believe the enticing and seducing lies that are pleasing for the ears to hear. She delights in deceiving the children of God to go a whoring from the truth of God after false doctrines, the commandments of men, and the traditions of the past. She loves only the lying words that exalt and love “self”, rather than God. It is by reason of her whorish words/thoughts that she continually tempts my people to forget the counsels of God’s words/thoughts, just as she did with Adam and Eve. She hates, and is envious of, any and all other works or words that are done that appear to be more righteous than her own. She is the spirit that was in Cain that lusted to kill Able. She is spirit that burns in the hearts of the children of this world to hate and to persecute the children of God. She is the queen of this fallen world, and her desires and pleasures are the harlotry of this world; for she is the harlotry that seduces all with her evil desires, her profane desires, her wicked desires, her deceitful desires, her unclean desires, and all of her abominable desires. All those who love to satisfy her desires and affections are those who make themselves to be the enemies of God. The wisdom of this world is the Babylon that has kept many of my people captive under the illusions of her spell; the blindness whereby they worship and serve the creature rather than the Creator. She is the city that is full of desires and vain glory; a city full of the idols of “self”.
II TIMOTHY 4:3 “For the time will come will they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own desires shall heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn their ears away from hearing the truth (words/thoughts of God) and shall be turned unto fables”.
JEREMIAH 5:30-31 (AMP) “An appalling and horrible thing [bringing desolation and destruction] has come to pass in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests exercise rule at their own hands and by means of the prophets. And my people love to have it so! But what will you do when the end comes?”
I JOHN 3:11,12 “For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And why did he slay he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s were righteous”.
GALATIANS 4:29-30 “But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now”.
She is the wisdom that blinds the eyes of people so that they are not able to see that the things which they naturally esteem and honor, they are in the sight of abominations. She is the mother of all abominations, and all they who have her in their thoughts and her power in their hearts, are abominations in the sight of God. She is the consciousness and love of “self” that has no love for God. It is her abominations that are found in the hearts of the hypocrites who profess to know God but then deny his power. Her abominations are the mountains upon which her throne sits, exalted in the high places of self-image; and her mountains are those seven abominations which those who are carnally minded esteem and honor. There is no desire in her to be as the faithful wife who patiently waits for her Lord to finish his work, but on the contrary, she is the spirit that seduces my people to walk today in the ways that seem right.
REVELATION 3:15-17 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I wish that you were cold or hot. So then because thou are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth because you say, “I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing”; yet you do not know that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked”.
PROVERBS 6:16-19 “These six things does the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look; a lying tongue; hands that shed innocent blood; a heart that devises wicked imaginations; feet that be swift in running to mischief; a false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brethren”.
REVELATION 17:1,2 “And there came one of the seven angels which had the 7 vials, and he talked with me saying, “Come here; I will show unto you the judgment of the great whore that sits upon many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication….5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH…18:4-8
Again, the wisdom of this world is not one because she loves all of the lies of Satan; the lies that are always changing and forming themselves into those words/thoughts that entice and seduce men with desires to believe that his words are right and true. She is the mother of all strife and contention because there is no agreement in the lies that she mothers and nurtures. She is the mother of all hypocrisy; the skill whereby one is able to act as though “he is” as the image that he appears to be in the sight of men, rather than be the image of what he is actually thinking. Just like the wisdom of this world, the hypocrite also constantly changes into the images that are pleasing in the sight of those who are seeing him; in the sight of those who only believe that he is as the man that he appears to be. The hypocrite is truly an illusion; a wind that blows this way, and then that way, and then is no more; an illusion of images that changes to please the desires of men. The hypocrite is like the wisdom of this world in that they only exist in the lying thoughts of the darkness of men’s imaginations. The hypocrite is one who desires for the darkness to be the light. The darkness is passing away with all of its lies, and desires, and vanity, and affections, but the word of truth, which never changes, will abide forever and ever; as well as all those who have the truth in the words/thoughts that they think upon. The hypocrite is not, nor was he ever, and neither shall he be forever. The hypocrite shall be as a bad memory; a memory that no one ever desires to be reminded of. That which is born of this world’s wisdom is flesh; and that which is born of my wisdom is Spirit and life.
MATTHEW 23:27,28 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are like unto whited tombs, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but within you are full of dead bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so, you also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity”.
JAMES 4:14 “….For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away”.
I PETER 1:22 “Seeing that you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that you love one another fervently with a pure heart, being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which lives and abides for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower thereof falls away: but the word of the Lord endures for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you”.
When the troubles and cares of this life arise, you will always find the wisdom of this world there first as though she is the caring mother, the faithful friend who is there for you with her helpful counsels; but she is only there because of her love to seduce men with her desires and Satan’s lies to deceive men into taking control over their situations or circumstances, lest they turn to God. All her counsels have an appearance of help, but that is only come in that manner to keep one from asking for help from above. She comes as the help that separates the children of God from love of their heavenly Father, who yearns to help us in all things. She sits as a queen of worldly advice, seemingly helpful with her counsels, but they are used only to keep the door open to the lies that accompany these troubles with such miseries as stress, fear, disappointment, failure, pride, worry, emotions, confusion, sadness, anxiety, and the uncertainty that accompanies all of counsels. She is the lies of uncertainty and confusion that trouble men in their troubles. Though she appears first as caring mother and faithful friend, she is the hidden enemy who betrays, always hiding behind the illusion of friendship, care, righteousness, and helpfulness. Watch and pray that you do not enter into the snares of her temptations; for she always seeks to lead the children of God astray with her desires. Who goes astray in the time of trouble but those who yield to her desires?
PSALM 3:2 “Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah”.
PSALM 60:11 “Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man”.
PSALM 34:17 “The righteous cry, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles”.
PSALM 40:17 “But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinks upon me. You are my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God”.
MATTHEW 16:21-25 “But Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men (his own emotions)”. Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it”.
That which is natural to the wisdom of this world is that which is natural to those who are inhabited by her; and her nature is darkness; and darkness is the nature of all flesh. It is only by reason of the wisdom of this world that the inhabitants of this world are have become the children of darkness because the darkness is the nature of this world. The nature of a man is as the nature of the words/thoughts that he thinks upon; for a man is as his thoughts. Seeing then that wisdom of this world is she who mothers the children of darkness, she continually nurtures them to keep the consciousness of their thoughts filled with such counsels as bitterness, loneliness, cruelty, arguments, covetousness, worry, envy, contention, spitefulness, complaints, fears, greed, hatred, love of self, confusion, anxiety, emotions, self-glory, unbelief, disappointment, malice, hypocrisy, corruption, impatience, strife, hopelessness, doubt, murder, frustration, stress, depression, arrogance, boredom, meanness, evil suspicions, self-condemnation, lies, thefts, dread, and pride. These are the thoughts of darkness and all who are mindful of the darkness are unto the darkness. The wisdom of this world is the darkness itself; and the children of darkness commune and fellowship with her because they are like unto her. It is impossible for any man to have a nature that is not like unto the thoughts that he thinks upon”.
EPHESIANS 8-17 “For you were sometimes darkness, but now are you light in the Lord: walk as children of light (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth), proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them; for it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever does make manifest is light. Wherefore he says, “Awake you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light”. See then that you walk circumspectly (accurately), not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be you not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
PROVERBS 23:7 “For as he thinks in his heart, so he is…”
ROMANS 8:5 “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace”.
I CORINTHIANS 2:14 “But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned”.
In this fallen world of darkness it is not possible to find any man who is able to walk free from his captivity to the natural senses of this world; that is, it is not possible to find a man who by nature loves the Lord God with all of his heart, all of his soul, and all of his mind or that keeps the commandments of God out of love. For by nature, men love to make themselves to be their own gods because that is the nature of the wisdom of this world who is in them. By nature, men would rather try and keep the commandment by their own ability, rather than ask for my Spirit which always delights in doing my will. By her nature, men delight in only in doing their own will. By her nature, men delight in doing those things which are right in their own eyes. By her nature, men love to receive glory and to be praised. By her nature, men trust in their own understanding and senses. By her nature, men delight in making a name for themselves. By her nature men find fault with, judge, and accuse one another. By her nature men make excuses and find reasons that always allow for them to justify all of their desires, words, pleasures, and deeds. By her nature, men will esteem those things which are an abomination in the sight of God. By her nature, men believe what they see. Again, the wisdom of this world is the nature of this fallen world; and it is only by her nature that man has become the citizens of this world. By her nature, the apostles said, “Lord, who can be saved?”; not understanding the love, the mercy, and the power of God.
EZEKIEL 28:2-5 “Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, “Thus says the Lord GOD; Because your heart is lifted up, and you have said, “I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas”; yet you are a man, and not God, though you set your heart as the heart of God. Behold, are you wiser than Daniel; where there is no secret that they can hide from thee? With your wisdom and with your understanding you have gotten riches unto yourself and have gotten gold and silver into thy treasures. By your great wisdom and by your merchandise, you have increased your riches, and your heart is lifted up because of thy riches”.
MARK 10:23-27 “And Jesus looked round about, and said unto his disciples, “How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!” And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answered again, and said unto them, “Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God”. And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, “Who then can be saved?” And Jesus looking upon them said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible”.
* The Lord spoke this word to me once saying, “There is no treasure in a man’s heart that is any greater than those things which he believes and trust is right; and every man’s righteousness is determined by whose wisdom is in his heart”
The children of this world love the darkness because they love living a life that is free of God, though they are blind to see that they have no freedom from the miserable thinking of the carnal mind. Oh many worship me with their lips and honor me with their mouths, but they would never allow themselves to receive any of my instructions or counsels. Many love their false doctrines because it allows for them to continue living a life that is independent from God, thus allowing for them to continue being god and lord over their own lives. The children of this world love this independence because the wisdom of this world continually deceives them with the illusion of self-sufficiency; the illusion that all men are able to provide for his own needs and supply for himself that which he lacks. This is idolatry; the idolatry of the blind children who see no need for God to be anywhere in their thoughts. These are those deceived children who see nothing but the goodness and righteousness that is of the being of “self”; for in their ignorance they are not able to comprehend or understand how there can be any goodness or righteousness that can go beyond that which they see and know naturally.
II CORINTHIANS 3:4-6 “And we have such trust through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God”.
REVELATION 3:14 “….I will spew you out of my mouth because you say, “I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing”; and you do not know that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked”.
The wisdom of this world is so delighted when her children choose to put God in second place behind their own intents, their own cares, their own righteousness, their own families, and their own desires and pleasures; for then are her desires satisfied. But there are no second place trophies or runner up ribbons on God’s shelf. That which is written is truth; “There is only one God; and you shall have no other gods before him; and you shall love the Lord your God with all of your heart, all of your mind, all of your strength, and all of your soul”. The wisdom of this world is always ready to supply reasons and excuses in her attempts to supplant that which is of God with that which is natural; she is always ready to exalt the natural with her reasonings to me more important than the things of God. She is the desire for all laziness and slothfulness that seeks to hinder my people from seeking after my heart. In all these things, the children of the darkness do not understand the power of the spirit of their God, that power of the law of the Spirit of life that is well able to overthrow all of the laws of sin and death that rule over the desires of the heart and the thoughts of the carnal mind. Though they think that they have become independent from God, they are blind to see how their hearts and minds are completely submitted to the words/thoughts of the queen of darkness, the wisdom of this world.
MATTHEW 22:37-38 “Jesus said unto him, “You shall love the Lord thy God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all of your mind”. This is the first and great commandment”.
MATTHEW 10:37-39 “He that loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that does not take up his cross and follow after me, is not worthy of me. He that finds his life shall lose it: and he that loses his life for my sake shall find it”.
LUKE 14:16-27 “Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and he bid many; and he sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, “Come; for all things are now ready”. And they all, with one consent, began “to make excuses”. The first said unto him, “I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused”. And another said, “I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused”. And another said, “I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come”. So that servant came, and showed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, “Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor, the maimed, and the lame, and the blind”. And the servant said, “Lord, it is done as you have commanded, and yet there is room”. And the lord said unto the servant, “Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled; for I say unto you that none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper”. And there went great multitudes with him, and he turned and said unto them, “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple”.
MATTHEW 22:29 “Jesus said, “You do err not knowing the scriptures are the power of God”.
Do you now understand, that as the wisdom is that dwells in the mind of man, so also is the consciousness of the words/thoughts that he thinks upon? Though there are many lifeless thoughts just drifting around in the mind of man, the only ones that are meditated on, considered, or believed are those thoughts which are found to be pleasurable and desirable to the wisdom that is in him. So then, when I declared, “My thoughts are not your thoughts”, was I not also saying in truth that your wisdom is not as the wisdom that is given from above? Do you now see and understand that my thoughts are no where to be found in the consciousness of the natural mind because the desires and pleasures of the natural and the spiritual are contrary to one another? In truth, if your thoughts are not as my thoughts and your wisdom has no likeness to the wisdom of God, then who is your Lord? Who is the god of your world except the one who administers to you the words/thoughts that you think upon? Who is your Lord except the one whose counsel you live your life according to? Who is a citizen of this world except those whose consciousness is captive to only be only mindful to the dead words/thoughts that come forth from the god of this world? They that are of this world speak only of the things that are dictated unto them by the king and the queen of his world; otherwise they would not be the lords and rulers of this world.
HEBREWS 9:14 “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God”?
EPHESIANS 2:1-3 “And you has he made alive who were dead in trespasses and sins; wherein in times past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience: among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind (words/thoughts); and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others”.
ROMANS 6:16 “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slave whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or obedience that leads to righteousness?”
1 JOHN 4:4-6 “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore they speak of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God: he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God does not hear us. Hereby we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error”.
JOHN 8:43 Jesus said unto them, “Why do you not understand my speech? Because you cannot hear my word? You are of your father the Devil, and the *lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abides not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it”.
*they do the will of the Devil because the same desires that are in the Devil are the same desires that are in the natural mind; the natural mind that is corrupted with the death of the wisdom of this world.

|I came as the righteousness of God into a world captive to self-righteousness. I came as the light of God into a world captive to the darkness that appears as the light. I came as the truth of God into a world captive to the lies that seem like the truth. I came as the life of God into a world whose only friendship is with death. I came as the reality of God into a world captive to the illusions of vanity. I came as the wisdom of God into a world captive to the wisdom of this world. I came from the Creator into a world where the creature is worshipped, and served, and loved. For the darkness has kept the all citizens of this world captive to under this illusion: the illusion whereby each man sees that his own decisions, his own deeds, his own judgments, his own religion, and his own opinions as being that which is right and true; and it is this illusion that is the religion of this world; the religion whereby all who worship and serve the idol of “self” because it is the natural desire of the thinking of the carnal mind. The fruits of this illusion are clearly seen in the strife, in the differences, in the hatred, in the warfare, in the worries, in the disagreements, in the unbelief, in the malice, in the anxiety, in the arguments, in the fears, and many other such like things of this world, because they are the nature of the thinking that comes natural to the carnal mind. Yet still, by reason of the wisdom of this world, every man is remains confident that how he sees and interprets all things is the right way for them to be seen and interpreted. Yet God in heaven has declared through his prophets saying, “There are none righteous; no, not one”.
PROVERBS 21:2 “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes…”
ROMANS 3:10 “As it is written, “There are none righteous; no, not one”.
PROVERBS 16:25 “There is a way that seems right but the end thereof is the way of death”.
PROVERBS 3:7 “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil”.
Go; run to and fro through your streets, and see if you can find a man that does not believe that the thoughts that he thinks upon are not righteous. Go and see if you find any man who knows that the wisdom of his thoughts is nothing but vanity. Go and find out for yourself just how great the wisdom of this world is that has birthed all of these illusion into the hearts and the minds of all the citizens of this world. The wisdom of this world is nothing but an illusion whereby men believe that vain things are great things; vain things that they desire and esteem. Go and see if you find can a man who does not believe that his own thoughts are not the standard of righteousness that all life should be lived according to. Go and find a man who does not believe that his religion is the right way that God should be worshipped and served? The wisdom of this world is the righteousness of man, which is the mystery of iniquity; the mystery which works in the children of disobedience who do not seek to know my righteousness. Who can see the error and the fault in that which he trusts to be right? Who will repent of any thought or deed that is thought to be right? Who worships me in a way that he does not believe is the true way?
ISAIAH 59:1-10 “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; and neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. None calls for judgment, nor does any plead for the truth. They trust in vanity, and speak lies. They conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. They hatch cockatrice’ eggs, and weave the spider’s web: he that eats of their eggs dies, and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper. Their webs shall not become garments, and neither shall they cover themselves with their works: for their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence (wrong act) is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goes therein shall not know peace. Therefore is judgment far from us, neither does righteousness overtake us. We wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness. We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men”.
ISAIAH 26:2-3 “Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in. You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in you”.
JEREMIAH 5:1 Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executes judgment, that seeks the truth; and I will pardon it. And though they say, “The LORD lives”; surely they swear falsely. O LORD, are not your eyes upon the truth? You have stricken them, but they have not grieved. You have consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction. They have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return. Therefore I said, “Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the LORD, nor the judgment of their God”.
JOHN 4:23-24 “But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”.
It is as it is written, that when I came into this world the citizens of this world did not know me because the wisdom of this world blinds the eyes of all men to see God as well as all things that pertain to God. I came into this world as the Christ of God’s wisdom to deliver all who would believe on me from the antichrist of this world’s wisdom. My own people despised and rejected me because they measured and judged me according to the righteousness and the beauty of this world’s wisdom; and neither my appearance of righteous nor my outward beauty measured up to that which was acceptable and pleasing in the sight of the blind hypocrites. Then, to satisfy the pleasure of the wisdom that ruled over them, they proceeded to reject me, to make light of my words, to hate me, to mock me, to spit on me, to persecute me, and then they crucified me; and all this was done to appease the wisdom of their desires and affections. So also did they believe in their hearts and in their minds that what they had done was right in the sight of God. Do you think that the wisdom of God had anything to do with such a conspiracy as this? Do you think that the wisdom of God would ever be involved in such conspiracy against any man; even antichrist himself? Whose wisdom then aroused such a fire in the hearts of my people to do such wicked works and evil deeds to the Son of God? Do you now see how the wisdom of this world, as the spirit of antichrist, always works in the hearts and the minds of all those who are deceived by her? The wisdom of this world has no agreement, or fellowship, or submission, or affection, or communion with any of the things of God. Satan himself is submitted to God, but the wisdom of the carnal mind is never subjected to any of the laws of God; for it is not possible for those who are under the law of sin and death to have the joy and peace that rules over the thinking of those who are spiritually minded.
I JOHN 2:18 “Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
II JOHN 1:7 “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh (sinful flesh/Rom.8:3). This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
ROMANS 8:3 “For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh”.
I CORINTHIANS 1:30 “But of him are you in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: that, according as it is written, “He that glories, let him glory in the Lord”.
When Adam and Eve rejected my words/thoughts, my Spirit departed from them; and when my Spirit departed from them, my words/thoughts departed from out of their consciousness, and the darkness of ignorance moved in. Can light have “any” fellowship with darkness? Is it possible for life to have any communion with death? Not only was all fellowship and communion with Adam and Eve severed from me, but out of the darkness of their ignorance, that which took rule over their hearts and minds, they became afraid and fearful of him who they once loved and had intimate friendship with. Now is time that I have called many into restoration; a restoration of friendship; a restoration of agreement; a restoration of fellowship and communion; a restoration of love; and a restoration of abundant life. I have come into this world as the Spirit of life which is well able to restore that which Satan has stolen. I come into this world as the gift of the wisdom of God to all those who will receive me in their thinking. For just as the wisdom of this world is the source of all that which is evil, unclean, abominable, deceitful, wicked, and profane, so also am I the wisdom of God that is all that which is necessary for complete restoration. I have come to give my Father’s words/thoughts into the thinking of those who will receive him. For it is as it is written, “The dwelling place of God is with man”.
REVELATION 21:3 “And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle (dwelling place) of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God”.
PROVERBS 16:3 (NKJ) “Commit your work unto the Lord, and your thoughts will be established”.
I came to set men free. I came to set them free from their bondage to believe the lies of Satan’s words/thoughts. I came to set men free from the desires of this world; from the desires that only have pleasure in believing the lies of Satan’s words/thoughts. I came to overthrow the strongholds of natural desires; the strongholds where the wisdom of this world rules over the hearts and the minds of man with her desires, pleasures, lusts and affections. I came to set men free from the illusions of lies that seem like the truth; as well as from the hypocrisy of iniquity that appears as righteousness. What man can free himself of the secret sins that hide behind those words and deeds that indeed have an appearance of righteousness? I came to set men free from their captivity to the one who torments their words/thoughts with his miserable counsels because he hates all men. If the words/thoughts that men think upon are miserable then how can men be anything other than miserable? If then the words/thoughts that a men think upon are vain, then how can men be anything other than vain? If the words/thoughts that men think upon are evil, then how can man be anything other then evil?
JOHN 8:36-38 “If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. I know that you are Abraham’s seed; but you seek to kill me because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do that which you have seen with your father”.
GALATIANS 4:6-8 “And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, “Abba, Father”. Wherefore you are no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Howbeit then, when you knew not God, you did service unto them which by nature are no gods”.
GALATIANS 4:26 “But Jerusalem (the wisdom of God) which is above is free, which is the mother of us all”.
PROVERBS 23:7 “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he….”
But who can I set free? Who is able to see that every man’s captivity is to the words/thoughts that he thinks upon in his own mind? What man is able to deliver himself from his own desires and affections for “self”? Can a man deliver himself from the sins of unbelief and doubt? What man is able to keep from bowing his heart and mind before the fears that torment his soul? Can a man free himself from the desires to do his own will? I came to set men free from their captivity in the kingdom of sin; the kingdom of sin whose laws are built upon the lies of Satan’s words/thoughts. Can a man free himself from a mind that has no joy, or care, or peace, or love in it? Can a man free himself from the vanity of his own imaginations? Is not a man’s freedom his salvation? Truly I say to you that all men are as the words/thoughts that they think upon.
JOHN 8:31 Jesus said, “If you continue in my word, then shall you be my disciples, and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”.
I am life. I am the word. I am the words/thoughts of life that dwell in the spiritual mind. I am the mediator between God and man. I am the restoration of the words/thoughts of God in man. I am the resurrection and life. I am the peace that rules in the spiritual mind. I am the wisdom of God who rules with life and peace. I am willing to give my all, but who is willing to surrender their all unto me? Who is willing to surrender this world’s wisdom unto me with it affections and desires? Who is willing to die to her righteousness so that I may reveal my righteousness unto/in him? Who is willing to give to me his illusions of reality so that I may give unto him the everlasting reality? Every man’s reality is the words/thoughts that he believes on; the words/thoughts that appear as those lively, healthy particles in his thinking. Eternal reality says that it is impossible for a man to save himself; illusional reality believes that a man can save himself by “self” means. Yet, no man believing such an illusion has any power to change the death that rules over the words/thoughts of the carnal mind. Where will you go to redeem the dead thoughts for thoughts of life; or rather, to redeem the wisdom of this world for the wisdom of God?
JOHN 15:5 Jesus said, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: “for without me ye can do nothing”. If a man does not abide 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. If you abide in me, and my words (words/thoughts) abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done unto you”.
I CORINTHIANS 1:30 “But of him are you in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom…”
JAMES 3:17 “But the wisdom (Jerusalem from above) that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, easy to be entreated (to obey), full of mercy and “good fruits…”
JAMES 1:5 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God who gives to all men liberally, and upbraids not (without fault-finding); and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways”.
PROVERBS 2:2-6 “So if you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; Yea, if you cry after knowledge and lift up your voice for understanding; If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures, then shall you understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding”.
PROVERBS 3:13 “Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gets understanding”.
Now hear and understand, has not my word instructed you saying that I did not come to take you out of this world but to take the evil of this world out of you? What is the evil of this world? Is it you or is it an entity that dwells within you? Does it possess you or do you possess it? I tell you that nothing possesses you except that which you desire to be possessed of. If you are possessed by evil, it is because you desire to possess evil. If you are possessed by vanity, it is because you desire to be possessed by vanity. If you are possessed by fears, it is because you desire to be possessed by fears. If you are possessed with hatred and unforgiveness, it is because you desire to be possessed with hatred and unforgiveness. If you are possessed by slothfulness, it is because you desire to be possessed by slothfulness. If you are possessed by evil and wickedness, it is because you love the wisdom that is in you. If you are possessed by the death that rules over the words/thoughts of the carnal mind, it is because you desire to be possessed by death. Have not I given to you all a choice between death and life? Do you now believe me when I tell you that if you are possessed by death in your thinking, it is only because you chose to have death in your thinking? I have told you before, and I now tell you again, that nothing has power over you except that which you desire to believe to be right. If you will delight yourself in the Lord, that is, in his wisdom, then he shall give unto you the desires of your heart. Did Satan have to intimidate Eve to eat of that fruit or did she eat of that fruit because she “desired” for Satan’s counsel to be right and true? So now do you see and understand, that the choice between life and death that I have set before you is, in truth, a choice between the life that is in God’s wisdom or the death that is of the wisdom of this world? So what is your heart’s desire?
JOHN 17:15-17 Jesus said, “I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through your truth: thy word (words/thought) is truth.
LUKE 11:13 Jesus said, “If then you, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, then how much more shall your heavenly Father give the gift of the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?”
JEREMIAH 4:22 “My people are foolish…they are wise to do evil…”
II CORINTHIANS 3:17 “Now the Lord is that Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty”.
PSALM 37:4 “Delight yourself also in the LORD; and he shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass; and he shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass”.
I have not come into this world to ask men to free themselves from these worldly desires and pleasures seeing that no man has the power to free himself from such. I have not come into this world to ask any man to work at making himself to be as good as he can be. I did not come into this world to lay upon any man the burdens of a law that requires for him of his own power and abilities to observe and to do that which is impossible for anyone to do. I have not come into this world to ask men to change the world. All that I am asking for any man to do is to give….to give himself to me. I came into this world to give my all to you, but who is willing to first give to me all that which they have to me? Is it possible for a man to increase in me without first decreasing in that which he has; lest he have 2 masters? I came into this world to seek out all those who desire life, and who desire it abundantly; for I am life. Those who love death will find nothing in me to satisfy any of their desires and pleasures. I came to give the words/thoughts of life to all those who desire fellowship and communion with Father God. I came to give myself to all those who are willing to give unto me all of the dead words/thoughts that have ruled over the thoughts in their mind. I came to give myself to all those who are willing to dispossess the wisdom of this world so that I might bless them with myself. I came into this world to redeem those who are willing to give to me the darkness of their minds that has separated and alienated them from the life of God. I am the Son in whom the Father is well pleased; and only by my presence in you can my Father be pleased with you. Will you give yourself to me?
JEREMIAH 13:23 “Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard its spots? Then how can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil?”
ROMANS 12:1-2 “Therefore I beseech you, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
ROMANS 8:2 “For the law of the spirit of life has set me free from the law of sin and death.…6 the carnal mind is death but the spiritual mind is life and peace”.
ROMANS 8:13 “If you live after the flesh you shall die, but if you, through the Spirit, do mortify the deeds of the body, you shall live”.
LUKE 11:13 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, then how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask of him?”
JAMES 4:2 “….you have because you ask not”.
Those who give to me their words/thoughts are those who give unto me their world; those who give to me their world are those who give unto me the wisdom of this world that has been dwelling in them. Those who give unto me the wisdom of this world are those who will see me destroy all uncleanness, all evil, all hypocrisy, all idols of “self”, all iniquity, all that which is profane, all wickedness, all deceitfulness, all abominations, all sin, and all death; for she is the mother and source of desire and power of them all. Those who see me destroy the wisdom of this world are those who lose their citizenship in his world. Those who give up their citizenship in this fallen world are those who I will give unto my world; and those who will receive my world are those who will be given my words/thoughts. Those who will receive my words/thoughts are those who I will give unto my authority, my character, and my nature; the authority, the character, and the nature that is in Christ Jesus, which is all that which is well-pleasing in the sight of our heavenly Father. Those who I give my authority, my character, and my nature will then walk in fellowship, and communion, and love with our heavenly Father. Those who walk in fellowship, and communion, and love with the Father are citizens and Sons of the kingdom of God. Only my words/thoughts are able to bring about that which my Father yearns to have; the complete restoration of oneness between the Creator and his creation. There is nothing that I think that is impossible for me to do; and those who give unto me their thoughts shall think the in the same likeness as I do also. I am your belief.
ROMANS 12:1,2 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reason-able service. And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is the good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God”.
JOHN 10:17 Jesus said, “Therefore does my Father love me because I lay down my life that I might take it again. No one takes it from me but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down and I have power to take it up again. This commandment I have received of my Father”.
Now hear and understand: The wisdom of this world cannot be tamed; it cannot be saved; it cannot be mastered; it cannot be subdued; and neither can it be changed. Can darkness be light? Can evil be good? Can death be life? The wisdom of this world is that entity whose very existence is enmity against God; and her dwelling place is only found in the words/thoughts of the carnal mind. She can never be subject to the law of life because she is the law/ruler of sin and death. She cannot subject herself to the law of truth because, like Satan, there is no truth in her; and she only desires to believe lies. She can never be subject to the law of faith because she does not comprehend nor does is she able to believe the truth of the words of God. The wisdom of this world can never subject herself to the law of love because she is an entity of enmity. Seeing that she hates all, she greatly delights in using my word to judge others, to find fault with others, to accuse others, to condemn others, and to hate all who are not like unto her. It is by reason of her desires and passions that I was hated and condemned. It was also by reason of her that the woman caught in the act of adultery was accused and condemned. It is by reason of her presence in Satan that he stands day and night before the throne of God, accusing the brethren continually in his attempts to satisfy her desires. It is impossible for the wisdom of this world to ever subject herself to any of my laws; for none of my laws are of this world”, says the Lord. “She has nothing of me in her, and there is nothing of her in me.
Entity: 1 : BEING , EXISTENCE ; especially : independent, separate, or self-contained existence : the existence of a thing as contrasted with its attributes.
The wisdom of this world is an entity of this fallen world; an entity of darkness that is only able to exist in this world. The wisdom of this world is the entity of the being of “self”; and the being of “self” is the corruption of man. She is the entity from which all the desires and affections of this world come forth from; and all those who walk according to her desires and affections are lovers of themselves. She is the entity that is not of the Father but that which is of this world. Again I say to you and ask you to consider these words: the wisdom of this world is the entity from which all that is evil in this world comes forth from; she is the entity from which all that which is profane comes forth from; she is the entity from which all wickedness comes forth; and she is the entity from which all that which is unclean comes forth; she is the entity from which all that is vain comes forth; she is the entity from which all that is abominable comes forth; she is the entity that brings forth all of the guile and deceit that delights itself in joining herself only to lies of Satan’s words/thoughts, she is the entity from which death comes forth; to make them desirable and pleasurable to be believed on. The wisdom of this world is that entity, that spirit of darkness that then joined itself to soul of man at the fall of Adam and Eve, to make man to be one with her affections and desires. She is the entity that became one with man the moment that Eve found it pleasurable to disobey the counsels of God’s words/thoughts. Can you hear my words? Can you hear that when the entity of this world’s wisdom is joined with the lies of Satan, then sin is born into the thinking of the carnal mind; whether it be an evil thought; whether it be a profane thought; whether it be a wicked thought; whether it be an unclean thought; whether it be a vain thought; whether it be an abominable thought; or what it be a beguiling and deceitful thought. She is the mother of all fleshly/carnal thoughts; and all of her words/thoughts are sin. She is the law/ruler of sin and death. She is the sin that Paul saw dwelling in him, but that which he gave no consent unto or that he had any agreement with.
ROMANS 7:16-17 “If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law (Rom 8:2 the law of the spirit of life) that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwells in me”…. 20-8:2 Now if I do that which I will not, it is no more I that do it but the sin that dwells in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man; but I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin… 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death…8:5 “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God (the law of the Spirit of life), nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God”.
GALATIANS 5:17-18 “For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other so that you cannot do the things that you will. But if you be led of the Spirit, you are not under the law (of sin and death)”.
GENESIS 6:5 “And saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thought of his heart was only evil continually….8 But Noah found grace in the sight of God”.
MATTHEW 24:37-44 “But as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be at the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and took them all away; so also will it be in the day of the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field, one will be taken and the other left; two women will be grinding at the mill, one will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief was coming, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect”.
It is not possible for the wisdom of this world to have any desires or affections that do not lead to sin, and then have the sin that leads to death. All those whose father is the Devil, will walk according to the desires of the Devil because she is the wisdom that is dwelling in the Devil that bears those desires; and the two sharing the same desires and affections, have become one. She is fiercely independent of God; and all who are deceived by her are only dependent on the “self” being. She exists only to always seek for satisfaction for her desires to exalt “self” to godlike status.
JOHN 8:44 “You are of your father the Devil and the desires of your father you will do….”
EZEKIEL 28:2-10 “Son of man”, say unto the *prince of Tyrus, “Thus says the Lord GOD; Because your heart is lifted up, and you have said, “I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas”; yet you are a man, and not God, though you set your heart as the heart of God. Behold, are you wiser than Daniel where there is no secret that can be hidden from you? With your wisdom and with your understanding you have gotten you riches, and have gotten gold and silver into your treasures: by your great wisdom and by your traffic you increased your riches, and your heart is lifted up because of your riches”. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, “Because you have set your heart as the heart of God; behold, I will therefore bring strangers upon you, the terrible of the nations, and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom, and they shall defile your brightness. They shall bring you down to the pit, and you shall die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas. Will you yet say before him that slays you, “I am God”? But you shall be a man, and no god in the hand of him that slays you. You shall die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it”, says the Lord GOD….17-18 “Your (father the king of Tyrus; Lucifer/Satan ) heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, you have corrupted your wisdom by reason of your brightness: I will cast you to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. You have defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities (the works of the wisdom of darkness), by the iniquity of your traffic (merchandise); therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of you, it shall devour thee, and I will bring you to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold you”.
* Note: the prince of Tyrus is the son of the King of Tyrus, which is Satan (EZEKIEL 28:12-19). The prince of Tyrus then represents all those who Jesus spoke of in John 8:44 when you said, “You are of your father the Devil and the desires of your father you will do”. And by reason of the wisdom of this world, those desires are to exalt “self” to godlike status independent of God. The man who overcomes the desires of Satan is the man who overcomes the wisdom of this world.
Come out of her my people; come out of her! Come out from her evil sins! Come out from her profane sins! Come out from her wicked sins! Come out from her deceitful sins! Come out from her unclean sins! Come out from her sins of vanity! Come out from her abominations! Come out from her sins of corruption! Come out from her iniquities where the darkness appears as the light! Come out of her death! Come out from all of her fornications! Come, let you me show you the judgment of the mother of sin and iniquity. Come let me show you the judgment of the great whore who hates God and all things that are of God. Come let me show you the judgment of the harlot who seduces and entices my people with the sweet words of her false doctrines and the traditions that have stolen away the affection of those who once loved me with their hearts. Seeing that she cannot be tamed, or changed, or mastered, it is necessary that this entity be destroyed. She must be destroyed because she is the entity that can never be anything other than the enmity that is against God. It is impossible for her to ever love God, or to love the things of God, or to love the children of God. She must be destroyed. Come out of her my people so that you be not destroyed with her; for all who love her, who desire her, who consent and agree with her, and that are friends with her shall perish with her. Come out of her my people so that you may receive the blessings and the promises of God. You know that it is written that it is not possible for anyone who is subject to her desires to enter into the kingdom of God.
REVELATION 17:1-5 “And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying to me, “Come here and I will show unto you the judgment of the great whore that sits upon many waters with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth having been made drunk with the wine of her fornication (the seducing words/thoughts of her counsels”. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy (the enmity of the carnal mind), having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, “THE MOTHER” OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH”..…18:2-8 “And after these things, I saw another angel come down from heaven having great power and the earth was lightened with his glory; and he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies”. And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues; for her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she has glorified her “self”, and lived deliciously; so much torment and sorrow give her (the miseries, the troubles, and the unrest of the carnal mind): for she says in her heart, “I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow”. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day; death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judges her.
EPHESIANS 5:3-7 “But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you as becoming to saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Therefore you be not partakers with them”.
I CORINTHIANS 6:9-10 “Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God”.
GALATIANS 5:17-21 “For the flesh (carnal mind) lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that you cannot do the things that you would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness (lack of restraint in conversation, idolatry, witchcraft (rebellion), jealousies, hatred (enmity), contention, wrath, strife, divisions, heresies (strong willed opinions; man’s words/thoughts), murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God”.
REVELATION 21:7,8 “He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, the unbelieving, the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death”.
Come out of her my people, be not a partaker of the judgment of the great whore but rather choose to judge the great whore and her desires. Have I not called you to make you kings and priests? What king does not sit upon his throne and judge those who are of his kingdom? Then judge your words/thoughts. Judge the wisdom that accompanies the words in your thinking. Judge that which is of this world so that you be not a partaker of the judgment of this world when “she” is judged. Come out of this great whore, who gives birth only to the affections and the desires of this world! Come out of this great whore, who through her illusions makes all to be abominations in the sight of God; those they appear good and beautiful in their own eyes! Come out of her my people, for through her illusions she is able to make the iniquities of hypocrisy to appear as the righteousness of God! Come out of this great whore, who is able to make vain things to appear important and great. Oh, how great is the darkness of this wisdom that blinds the eyes and the hearts of all creation so that there are none who know God. Come out of her my people, for she deceives the children of God and makes them to be willing captives to Babylon; where all of her inhabitants only worship and serve the desires and the pleasures of the creature rather than the desires and pleasures of the Creator. For only by reason of the wisdom of this world do my people go astray from me; whorish children who turn from the love of the truth to justify themselves with the lying words/thoughts that inhabit their own minds!
I CORINTHIANS 11:31 “For if we would judge ourselves, then we should not be judged. For when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord so that we should not be condemned with the world”.
ISAIAH 1:19-23 “If you be willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it. How is it the faithful city has become a harlot! Righteousness once belonged in it, but now murderers. Your silver has become dross and your wine mixed with water. Your princesses are rebellious, and your companions thieves. Everyone loves gifts and follows after rewards. They do not judge the fatherless neither does the cause of the widow come unto them”.
HOSEA 4:11-12 AMP “Harlotry and wine take away the heart and the mind and the spiritual understanding. My people [habitually] ask counsel of their [senseless] wood [idols], and their staff [of wood] gives them oracles and instructs them. For the spirit of harlotry has led them astray and they have played the harlot, withdrawing themselves from subjection to their God”.
How? How shall my people come out of her? How shall my people be able to put off those desires and affections that come so naturally and easily into their thinking? How shall my people put off the desires and the affections of the old man which is entirely corrupted by this worldly wisdom? How shall my people put off the rebellion of unbelief and doubt? How shall my people put off the desires of wickedness, of profaneness, of hypocrisy, of evil, of uncleanness, as well as all of the abominations that they have esteemed and honored? How shall my people put of the sins and the iniquities that so easily beset them? Again I remind you, “I did not come to take you out of the world but to take the evil of this world out of you”. If I had chose, I could have judged Satan and taken him out of this world, but that would not have delivered any man from the darkness which he knows by nature; and neither would that have allowed for there to be any restoration of fellowship and communion with God. Remember that which I showed to you, that it was not Satan’s lies that tempted Adam and Eve in their fall, but rather it was their own desires that tempted them; that tempted them to believe that Satan’s lying words/thoughts were truth, that overthrew them. Satan’s lies were only an instrument that aroused the true power that was already lying asleep in their hearts; the power whose strength is found in that she only loves that which is evil, deceitful, profane, unclean, deceitful, rebellious, and wicked. How would it possible for any man to believe any of Satan’s lies if there is no desire or affection within him that desires to believe any of his lies? But now that man has been completely corrupted by the lies of Satan and the desires of the wisdom of this world, how shall he escape the condemnation and the wrath that is to come upon all those who are joined to them? Remember, with men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible; all things are possible for those who believe on him.
I CORINTHIANS 10:12 “Wherefore let him who thinks that he stands take heed lest he should fall. There has no temptation taken you but that which is common to all men; but God who is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted beyond that which you are able, will with the temptation also make a way to escape so that you may be able to bear it”.
MATTHEW 26:41 Jesus said, “Watch and pray that you enter not into temptation; for the Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak”.
I am the way. I am the way, the truth, and the life. I am life. I am the life where there are no desires or affections to make any lie to be truth. I am the life where there are no affections for anything that is unclean, evil, profane, vain, deceitful, abominable, wicked, or dead. I am that gift of God. I am your freedom. I am your Savior and your Deliverer. In my Spirit is your salvation and liberty. If any man will follow after me, then let him take up his cross. I am the way of escape. If any man follows after me then let him take up his cross and disown himself. I am the way to escape all temptation. If any man will follow after me, then let him take up his cross and dispossess his citizenship in this world. I am the way of escape because there are no desires or affections of this world in me. If any man will follow after me, then let him take up his cross and do what? Die; die to the wisdom of this world; the source and power of all sin and iniquity. I am the wisdom of life that is given to those who will dispossess and disown the wisdom of this world. I am the wisdom of life that will free you from thinking on the words/thoughts that inhabit the carnal mind. If any man will follow after me, then let him willingly take up his cross to crucify death unto himself; for death is the fashion of all the citizens of this world. The way that I have chosen for all men to escape out of this world is through the cross that I have asked each one of you to take up. Follow me; for no servant is above his master, and when I found that I myself was clothed with the fashion of this world, I also took up my cross daily. For my kingdom is not of this world.
MATTHEW 16:24-26 “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, “If any man will come after me, let him deny (dispossess/disown) himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”
PHILIPPIANS 2:5 “And let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God. But he made himself to be of no reputation and took upon himself the fashion of man (death/carnal mind), and he humbled himself and became obedient to death, the death of the cross (not the cross on Calvary, for there he died for us all; but the daily cross where he died to the fashion of this world; the wisdom/death that inhabits the words/thoughts of the carnal mind).
ROMANS 8:3 “For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh (carnal mind), and for sin condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh are mindful of the things (words/thoughts) of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things (words/thoughts) of the Spirit. For to be carnally (fleshy) minded is death but to be spiritually minded is life and peace”.
HEBREWS 2:14-15 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the Devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage”.
1 JOHN 3:8-11 “He that commits sin is of the Devil; for the Devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loves not his brother. For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another”….14 “We know that we have passed from death (the carnal mind) unto life (the spiritual mind), because we love the brethren. He that loves not his brother abides in death”.
No, I have not chosen for your escape from the evil of this world to be the removal of Satan; for though there would be an absence of his lies in this world, there would still exist in the hearts and minds of my people all those corrupted natural affections and desires that are of this world. No, I have not chosen for your escape from the sin of this world to be the removal of Satan, for it would then not be necessary for any man to choose me. I have chosen that your escape from this world would only come to those who desire me; who desire to give to me their world so that I might give unto them my kingdom. I have chosen that the only way for a man to escape the death that compasses the carnal mind is through the judgment and the destruction of the wisdom of this world; that which a man must freely and willingly give up of his own self. I am giving all men a choice; either let the natural wisdom that is within you be judged and destroyed or you be judged and destroyed with the wisdom of this world; for those who are friends with this world are enemies with God. Those who follow after me, they will take up their crosses and they will not seek to save their lives, but rather they will ask for me to judge and destroy all of the wisdom that is within them that was not of the wisdom that created the heavens and the earth; for nothing is going to stand that is not of me” says the Lord.
I CORINTHIANS 1:18,19 “For the preaching of the cross (again, not the cross on Calvary but the daily cross) is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent”.
GALATIANS 5:24 “Those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its affections and desires….26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory (the glory of men)”.
JOHN 12:26 Jesus said, “He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal….31 NOW is the judgment of this world; now shall the prince (ruler; to be first in power or rank) of this world be cast out. And if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all unto me. This he said signifying what death (to crucify the ruler of this world; hence, in the garden when Jesus died to his will) he should die”.
I CORINTHIANS 2:4-5 “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
Those who follow after me are those who walk in the same path as I walked; the strait and narrow path that leads to life; the path where death decreases and life increases. I came into this world for a people who did not even know me; to a people who did not know me because their minds were blinded by the wisdom of this world. I came into this world to a people who praised me with their lips and honored me their mouths, but their hearts were far from me because the natural wisdom within them has no affections or desires for me. Who will take up his cross to follow me into abundant life? Who will take up his cross to crucify the enmity that does not know God; the enmity has put separation and alienation between the Creator and his creation? Who will take up his cross and cry out for me to judge the wisdom of his ignorance so that he might draw nearer to my heart? Who will take up his cross and allow for me to slay the desires of the old man who has no delight in any of my words/thoughts but delights in walking only after his own vain and dead thoughts? Who will give to me their all but those who take up their crosses and ask for me to destroy their citizenship in this fallen world? Who will I give my all to but those who have made themselves to be outcasts of this world because they have taken up their crosses to have destroyed the wisdom of this world with all her worldly and ungodly desires? The cross is the way into the newness of life; and I am the way, the truth, and the life. But who can know this except those who take up their cross and die?
ISAIAH 29:13-14 “Wherefore the Lord says, “Forasmuch as this people draw near to me with their mouths, and with their lips do honor me, but they have removed their heart far from me, and their fear towards me is taught by the precept of men; therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid”.
ROMANS 6:3-10 “Do you not know that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dies no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he lives, he lives unto God”.
EPHESIANS 4:21-24 “If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: that ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; and be renewed in the spirit of your mind that you put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness”.
ROMANS 7:4-6 “Wherefore, my brethren, you also are become dead to the law (Romans 8:2: the law of sin & death) by the body of Christ; that you should be married to another, to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. For when we were in the flesh, the motions (passions) of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of the spirit and not in the oldness of the letter”.
PSALM 147:2-7 “The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathers together the outcasts of Israel (the church). He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds. He tells the number of the stars; he calls them all by their names. Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite. The LORD lifts up the meek: he casts the wicked down to the ground. Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God”.

|Only those who desire abundant life in Christ Jesus will take up their crosses daily to crucify unto themselves the wisdom of this world; to put off death and put on life. I am life. I am your life after death. I am the wisdom of life that comes forth once again in those who crucify the wisdom of this world. I am the gift of God. I am the gift that is freely given to those who will make their wisdom to be a gift unto God. I am the resurrection. I am the resurrection and the life. I am the resurrection that is raised up in the wisdom of God. I am the wisdom that is the breath of the power of God. I am the wisdom by which all things were created; for all things which were created were created by me. I am the wisdom that gave life to all creation. I am the word of God by which all things were created. I am the immortal wisdom of God, the everlasting light of life. I am the light of immortality that was taken out of the world at the fall of man. I am the wisdom that knows God, that trusts God, that is loyal to God, that believes God, and that loves God. I am the wisdom that restores friendship, communion, and fellowship between the Creator and his creation. I am one with my Father; and my Father is one with me. I am the secret to eternal life. I am immortality. I am the wisdom that has no friendship with the desires and affections of the wisdom of this world. I am the wisdom that loves life and that has no fellowship death. I resurrect the dead from the fallen nature of death with the divine nature of abundant life. I alone am your escape from the temptations that arouse the desires and affections of this world. I have no desire to make any of Satan’s lies to appear in the likeness of the truth. I am the truth. I am the life and the truth that comes forth on the other side of the cross. I am the light of life. I am everlasting light of truth. I am the light of immortality. My Father is life; I am life; my Father and I are one. I am the divine nature of life; God is the divine nature. My Father and I are one, and we will make our dwelling place in all those who love life. I am the resurrection and the divine life; and all those who I resurrect I resurrect in me, for I am the divine nature of life. I am your purpose for living.
I CORINTHIANS 15:35,36 “But some will say, “How are the dead raised up?”; and, “What body will they come?” You fool, do you not know that which you sow is not made alive except that it die?….49 As we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly”.
JAMES 3:15 “This wisdom descends not from above but is earthly, sensual, and devilish…
I am life. I am the source of life. I am the wisdom that gives life. I am the words of wisdom. I am the wisdom of the words/thoughts of life. I am the fruits of life: I am the thoughts of joy; I am the thoughts of love; I am the thoughts of faith; I am the thoughts of forgiveness and mercy; I am the thoughts of peace; I am the thoughts of humility; I am the thoughts of kindness; I am the thoughts of contentment; I am the thoughts of belief; I am the thoughts of meekness; I am the thoughts of gentleness; I am thoughts of virtue; I am the thoughts of strength; I am the thoughts of goodness; I am true thoughts; I am patient and quiet thoughts; I am thoughts that are always mindful of my Father; I am thoughts of rest; I am peace of mind; I am thoughts that have peace with men; I am thoughts that are at peace with God. I am thoughts of life that continue forever and ever. I am all of right thoughts for abundant living. I am not mindful of “self”, and death has no place in my thoughts. I am the thinking in the spiritual mind. I am the abundant fruits of the Spirit. I am the nature of the Spirit, and my nature is life. I am the wisdom that mothers all words/thoughts of life. I am the fruits of the womb. I am the matrix of the resurrection of life. I am the resurrection that brings life to those who seek to lose their own. I am the spiritual mind that is raised up in those who take up their cross to lose their own mind. I am the peace that rules in the spiritually minded. I am the wisdom that is freely and liberally given to all those who ask and seek for me. I am willing to give my all to you, but are you willing to give to me your all?
Behold, I am the wisdom that makes all things new; that brings new life to those who have only understood death. I am the hope of those who take up their cross. I am the new life that the dead hope for. Those who take up their cross are they who seek for a new life. I am the new life. I have come into this world to make all things new; and I am the new thing. I am the wisdom that makes man new. I am the wisdom that makes all things new. I am wisdom that brings forth new desires and affections of life. I am the new man who loves fellowship and communion with God. Even so, to this day, there are so many of people who continue to praise me with their lips and honor me with their mouths, but their hearts are far from me because they refuse to crucify the old wisdom that allows for death to do their thinking, and that has no desire for me. I am the new man that is incorrupt and immortal. I am the thinking of life. I am the thinking that gives life. I think life; I Am.
I am the religion in the congregation of the living. I am the new religion of life to those who crucify their old religion; who cease from serving the desires and affections of the sinful nature of this world’s wisdom. I am the religion of life to those who cease from worshipping and serving the dead thoughts of the carnal mind. I am the religion of love to those who take up their cross and crucify the beast with it’s natural senses. I am the resurrection to those who come out of the congregation of the dead. I am the religion of new life. I am the words/thoughts of life that are worshipped and served in the thinking of all those who are spiritually minded. Let this mind be in you which was also in me; let my wisdom be in you that does not think that it is robbery to be equal with God. I am the wisdom of God that makes all men equal to the wisdom in God. I/the wisdom of God; Father/the wisdom of God; and you/the wisdom of God are one. I have you for my thinking and you have me for your thinking.
I am the wine of God; I am the new wine that the old wineskin cannot receive. I am the new wine made from the fruits of abundant life. I am the new wine pressed down, shaken together, and running over with life. I am the abundant life that the carnal mind cannot receive. I am the Messiah of God’s wisdom that comes to overflow you with the Spirit of life. I come after the antichrist of this world’s wisdom, with all of its affections and desires, have been crucified. I am the life in the thinking of the living; and all those who think on me are like unto me. All those who are like me, they think me, for they have been resurrected into the image of me that was in the beginning. All those who think like me come to fellowship and commune with me in the secret garden of their minds. I am the secret of abundant life, and only those who take up their cross will understand the secrets of life. Man is equal to the thoughts that he thinks upon; the thoughts that he agrees with, that he communes with, and that he fellowships with.
II THESSALONIANS 2:7-12 “For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now lets will let, until he be taken out of the way (by the daily cross). And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: even him whose coming is after the working of Satan with all of his power and signs and lying wonders, and with all the deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness (that which is right in their own eyes )”.
GALATIANS 5:24 “Those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh (the sinful nature of the wisdom of this world) with its affections and desires”.
PSALM 91:1-2 “He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust”.
PSALM 27:5 “For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock”.
But who will take up his cross? Who will take up his cross to lose his identity in this world? Who will take up his cross to resign? Who will take up his cross in exchange for a new name? Who will take up the cross of abdication? Who will take up his cross and surrender? Who will take up the cross of dispossession? Who is willing to take up his cross of disownership? Who will take up his cross for divorce? Who will take up his cross for reassignment? Who will take up his cross to disrobe? Who will take up his cross as a disclaimer? Who will take up his cross for renunciation? Who will take up the cross of refusal? Who will take up his cross to disavow? Who will take up his cross of denial? Who will send out his announcements to announce the cross of renouncement?
Who will take up his cross and ask for me to destroy the wisdom of this world which is the sinful nature of the flesh? Who will take up his cross and ask for me to destroy the wisdom that brings forth all the desires for all uncleanness; all wickedness; all vanity; all deceitfulness; all profaneness; all evil; and all of the abominations that the citizens of this world are identified by? Who will take up his cross and ask for me to destroy the wisdom that will make him free to resign from his position as a citizen of this fallen world? Who will take up his cross and ask for me to destroy the wisdom that gives to the children of darkness the name of her nature, of her character, and of her authority? Who will take up his cross and abdicate the throne of his own wisdom, giving up all of his “own” rights to be lord and god over his own life? Who will take up his cross and crucify the wisdom of deceit that tempts my people to make themselves to be an image after the best works of their own hands, so that they may then surrender their hearts and minds into my hands with the hope and the belief that I might make them to be of the best workmanship of my hands?
Who is willing to take up his cross to dispossess the wisdom of this world so that I may destroy the source of all his worldly desires and affections? Who is willing to take up his cross and allow for me to destroy the wisdom that will allow for him to disown the miserable, troubling, fearful, confusing, and worrisome thoughts of the carnal mind? Who will take up his cross and ask for me to destroy the wisdom that has kept him married to the laws of sin and death; the marriage that has kept him in communion and agreement with the sin, the hypocrisy, the hatred, the iniquity, the slander and the foolishness of this world’s religion? Who is willing to take up his cross and ask for me to destroy the wisdom that assigns for all men to walk in the way that seems right rather than in the way that leads to life? Who will take up their cross and ask for me to destroy the wisdom that has clothed them in this worlds fashion; to walk in the appearances that are only pleasing and acceptable in the sight of men?
Who will take up his cross to crucify and ask for me to destroy this world’s wisdom so that he may disclaim all of his worldly beliefs; laying down his own righteousness for living, so that I may give unto him the righteousness for abundant living and everlasting life? Who will take up his cross and ask for me to destroy his wisdom so that he may then renounce the darkness that has kept him alienated and separated from the love, the works, and the blessings of our heavenly Father? Who will take up his cross and ask for me to destroy this world’s wisdom so that they may have no desire to enticed or seduced by deceitful doctrines, or the old traditions, or by the commandments of men that accompany false religions?
Who will take up his cross and ask for me to destroy his wisdom so that he may disavow his slavery to the will and the pleasure of this world’s wisdom? Who will take up his cross and ask for me to destroy the wisdom that tempts men to deny the truth, lest they should be made free of her and that I might set them free from hiding from their own flesh? Who will take up his cross and ask for me to destroy this world’s wisdom so that he may repent of the death that dwells in the thinking of the carnal mind and be changed into the life that dwells in the thinking of the spiritual mind? Who is willing to take up his cross and renounce before all any agreement and friendship with this world’s wisdom?
Who will take up his cross? Who will humble his heart and come boldly before me asking for me to bless him with my wisdom? Who will stand before me and allow for me to freely and liberally give to them the wisdom that only has a desire to believe my truth? Who will stand before me and allow for me to give to them the wisdom that meditates only on those words/thoughts which are good, and pure, and right, and true? Who will stand before my throne and ask for me to give to them the gift of my wisdom which will then allow for them to be made citizens in my kingdom; seeing that it is necessary for one to have abundant life to live in my kingdom? Who will stand before my throne asking for my wisdom which allows for me to give unto them to my name; that is, to give to them a new name: a new nature, a new character, and a new authority? Who will stand before me and ask for me to give unto them my wisdom which makes all things new? Who will stand before my throne and ask for me to give unto them my wisdom; the wisdom that makes one equal in his thinking with God, so that the two may become one? Did you not know that this is your Father’s desire for you?
PHILIPPIANS 4:8 “And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ. Finally my brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, and whatsoever things are good; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things”.
II PETER 1:4 “Whereby are given unto us exceedingly great and precious promises; that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust”.
II CORINTHIANS 5:18 “Wherefore, from henceforth we know no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth we know him no more. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away and behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; to wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation”.
Who will refuse to take up his cross and seek to save his life in this fallen world but he who loves his citizenship in this world! Who will seek to save his life but he who has no desire to commune, or fellowship, or to love, or to be loved by his Creator! Who is he who seeks to save his life in this world but he who makes death to be his dear friend! Those who are friends with the wisdom of this world are the citizens of this world; and they have no desire to take up their cross to dispossess sinful nature that they are familiar with and that they trust in. Those who seek to save their lives are simply those who have no desire for me to clothe them in the divine nature of God. The cross that I have asked you take up is nothing more than a sign before me as to whose nature you desire to have in the thinking of your thoughts and whose desires and affections do you desire to have in your heart. The cross that I have asked you to take up has nothing to do with any kind of display of man’s power or intent, or that he should try to overcome evil of himself; for this is impossible for any of man to do. But rather the cross that I have asked you to take up is about you signifying before me that you are surrendering your heart and your mind into my hands for change. The cross is also a sign unto me that you are allowing for me to display my mighty power on your behalf to change those things in your heart and mind that are impossible for you change. Again, the cross that I have asked you to take up is a display of your humility, your belief, your sincerity, and your faith that will allow for you to surrender your life into my hands; dispossessing and surrendering your wisdom into my hands for judgment and destruction; for he who dispossesses and surrenders his wisdom into my hands is he who dispossesses and surrenders all that which is unclean, wicked, vain, profane, deceitful, evil, and abominable. Those who take up their crosses are those who signify before me that they desire to come out of her; to come out from the sinful nature of the wisdom of this world.
PROVERBS 8:36 “He that sins against me wrongs his own soul; all they that hate me (the wisdom of God) love death”.
JOHN 14:29-30 “And now I have told you before it comes to pass so that when it is comes to pass, you might believe. Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince (ruler) of this world cometh, and has nothing in me.
JOHN 12:31 “Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince (ruler; that which is first in power/control) of this world be cast out”.
REVELATION 17:1-5 “And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me: “Come here and I will show unto you the judgment of the great whore that sits upon many waters: with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication…..5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH….. 18:4-8 “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people so that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues; for her sins have reached unto heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she has glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she says in her heart, “I sit a queen (ruler), and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judges her”.
I CORINTHIANS 11:31 “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. For when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord so that we should not be condemned with the world (the wisdom of this world)”.
Who can love me but those who hate the wisdom of this world; the same wisdom which loves to hate me? I have chosen that the way of escape should only belong to those who are willing to judge and crucify unto themselves the wisdom that exalts itself and opposes itself against all that is called God; for they who are of her are like unto her. The desires and affections of the old man are the desires and the affections of the beast within; the beast which is driven to respond to all situations and circumstances according to the dictates of this world’s wisdom. Who has not argued with those who disagree? Who has not been paralyzed with fear? Who has not experienced frustration or confusion? Who has not reviled when they have been blamed or accused? Who has not provided a reason to excuse themselves of guilt? Who has not at some time known panic? Who has not lied to escape guilt? Who has not been overcome with emotions? Who has not smiled and greeted those who they have thought evil of? She rules the beast within from her hiding place that dwells in the darkness of the carnal mind.
She it is who tempts the beast within her desires to believe that her counsels are always right; and that her counsels should be protected. She is the whore that tempts the beast within to reject all of my instruction and to hate my correction. She is the whore who tempts the beast within not believe the instruction of my words. She is the whore who tempts the beast within to doubt my love and my power. She is the whore that tempts the beast within to scorn all of my counsel and to make light of all my words. She is the whore that tempts the beast within to murmur, to complain, and whine against those things which are contrary to her will and her pleasures. She is the whore that tempts the beast within to hate me because she finds all of my commandments to be grievous to her because she does have my Spirit abiding in her. She is the whore that tempts the beast within to love evil and to hate good. She is the whore who tempts the beast within to hate (think evil of) all who disagree; and she knows that there is no agreement between her and the spirit of God’s wisdom. She is the whore that tempts the beast within to blame God. She must be judged! She must be condemned! She must be destroyed! Those who take up their cross, they shall judge the whore; they shall condemn the whore; and they shall call upon my name, calling on me to send my fire down from heaven to destroy this great whore; this whore who has so delighted in seducing, and enchanting, and enticing, and deceiving them with her lusts and desires. I am jealous for all of my beloved, and I love all those who willing take up their cross to die to the counsels of the great whore.
PROVERBS 8:12 “I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the perverse mouth, do I hate”.
JOHN 7:7 “The world (the wisdom of this world) cannot hate you; but me it hates, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil”.
ECCLESIASTES 3:18 “I said in my heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them that they might see that they themselves are beasts”.
REVELATION 17:3-5 “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman (the wisdom of this world) sit upon a scarlet colored beast (carnally minded man), full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH”.
JUDE 10 “But these speak evil of those things which they do not know, but what they know naturally (the words/thoughts of the carnal mind), as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves”.
PROVERBS 1:26-33 “I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear comes; when your fear comes as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish comes upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me. For they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD; they would have any of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkens unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil”.
JOHN 10:17 Jesus said, “Therefore my Father loves because I lay down my life that I might take it again. No man takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down and I have power to take it up again. I have received this commandment from my Father”.
PSALM 26:1-8 “Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide. Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart. For your lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth. I have not sat with vain people and neither will I go in with dissemblers. I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked. I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass your altar, O LORD: that I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works. Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where your honor dwells.
PSALM 72:4 “He shall judge the poor of the people; he shall save the children of the needy and shall break in pieces the oppressor”.
Ps 75:7 “But God is the judge: he puts down one and sets up another”.
Be not afraid of the neither the beast nor the woman. I said that I would never leave you or forsake you; but do you believe my words are true? I am the Lord God, and I change not; I loved you unconditionally yesterday, I love you unconditionally today, and I will love you unconditionally tomorrow! My love delights in making my mercies new every day for you; and when sin abounds, my grace will abound far more. My love for you is far greater than the desires of this world that dwells in the carnal mind. Everyday my hands are stretched out towards the congregation of the dead who are led by the thinking of the carnal mind. At all times I am mindful of the dead who have refused to hear the voice of my words/thoughts. Everyday I yearn to give to them another opportunity and my love is ready to lead them to repentance. Everyday my heart cries out, “Come out, my people! Come out of this congregation of the dead! Come out of her! Turn from the idols of your own knowledge and opinions and turn from the illusions that have separated your hearts and your minds from my presence. Come back to me. Cease from trying to change me into the image of your words/thoughts, and allow for me to change you into the image of my words/thoughts. How can there be any repentance from the thinking of the carnal mind to the thinking of the spiritual mind without my Spirit? I am the Spirit. I am your repentance. I am the Spirit of life that makes men free from thinking the words/thoughts of natural man. I am the Spirit that mortifies the dead works of the carnal mind. I am the Spirit of the Lord that thinks God’s thoughts; and the thinking of God’s thoughts is your repentance from thinking on carnal thoughts. The thinking of God’s thoughts is your repentance from thinking on the lies of Satan.
ROMANS 5:20-21 “….but when sin abounded, grace did much more abound”.
I JOHN 4:4 “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them (the spirits of antichrist/the wisdom of this world): because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world”.
ROMANS 8:35-39 “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter”. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”.
II CORINTHIANS 3:17 “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
ISAIAH 65:2 “I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people who walk in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts”.
II CHRONICLES 7:14-15 “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attendant unto the prayer that is made in this place”.
PHILIPPIANS 4:8-9 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of a good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which you have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you”.
CORINTHIANS 15:49 “And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly”.
Still, even to this day, many refuse my love and have not chosen to repent of the thinking of the carnal mind and they continue to dwell in the congregation of the dead. They continue to honor me their mouths; they continue to praise me with their lips; they continue to fast; they continue to prophesy; they continue to cast out demons; they continue to do many wonderful works; they continue to tithe; they continue to pray; and they also continue to walk in the uncleanness, the deceitfulness, the profaneness, the evil, the hypocrisy, and the wickedness of the wisdom of this world. How long shall my blood cover you until you allow for me to your consciousness of dead works? How long will my blood cover you until you take up your cross and follow me with your heart? Many are asleep in the ignorance of their own opinions, blinded to see the corruption that of the wisdom that dwells in the imaginations of their own thoughts. How long shall you refuse to follow me out of darkness into the light of life? Many are asleep as the scribes and the Pharisees were, thinking that they have life because they read the scriptures; but scriptures are profitable for instruction, for edification, for doctrine, for proving, and for right counsels; but these are only instructions and counsels that are to lead you to me so that in you me you may find abundant life. I will lead you to take up your cross, and on the other side of the cross you will find life. I am life; I am the water of life; I am the light of life; I am the bread of life; I am the words of life; I am the spirit of life; and I am the wisdom of God that gives life to those who walk that strait and narrow path. Many who are wise in their own eyes are not able to see the truth of the instruction of the words which they read. Only those who take up their cross, willing to die to their possession of the wisdom of this world will be able to see that the cross is not about death, but it is about nothing other than life; the abundant life that comes after death. The cross is about the resurrection of life from dead; from the thoughts of carnal mind to the spiritual mind. I am the words/thoughts of life; I am the life that inhabited the Garden of Eden before the fall. I am the life that was, that is, and that shall be forever and ever.
PHILIPPIANS 3:18-2 “For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly (inward parts; Ps.51:5,6), and whose glory is in their shame (self), who mind earthly things. For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ: who shall change our vile body that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself”.
EPHESIANS 5:14-17 “Wherefore he says, “Awake you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light. See then that you walk accurately, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore do not be unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is”.
I CORINTHIANS 15:34 “Awake to righteousness and sin not; for some do not have the knowledge of God (the words/thoughts of God), and I speak this to your shame. But some will say, “How are the dead raised up?”
JOHN 5:36-40 (NKJ) “But I have a greater witness than John’s; for the works which the Father has given Me to finish — the very works that I do — bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent Me. And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form. But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom he sent, him you do not believe. You search the scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me; but you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life”.
I JOHN:14-16 “We know that we have passed from death (carnal mind) unto life (spiritual mind) because we love the brethren. He that loves not his brother abides in death. Whosoever hates (thinks evil) his brother is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. Hereby we perceive the love of God, because he laid down his life for us, we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren”.
I am the resurrection that is well able to raise up lifeless dust particles so that they may become those lively particles that have an everlasting purpose for living. I am the resurrection and the life; and those who come to me I am well able to raise up so that they may live, and move, and have all their being in friendship, in communion, in fellowship, and in love with Father; for this is the religion of the new man. In me you shall find the purpose for which you were created; I am the wisdom that gives purpose to all of your being. I am your reason for living. Without me, all of your words/thoughts are only vain, for none have any heavenly or eternal purpose. But who desires not for me to be the resurrection of their words/thoughts? Who desires not to live according to my purpose; to walk, to commune, to love, and to fellowship with our heavenly Father? Who will reject me? Who will not believe my report? Who will deny me? Who will spit on me? Who will despise me? Who? All those who do not take up their crosses to die to the wisdom of this world, that is who; those who have pleasure in satisfying the desires of this world’s wisdom.
ACTS 17:28-30 “For in him we live, and move, and have our being”; as certain also of your own poets have said, “For we are also his offspring”. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commands all men every where to repent”.
REVELATION 21:3-8 “And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new”. And he said unto me, “Write: for these words are true and faithful”. And he said unto me, “It is done”. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, the unbelieving, the abominable, the murderers, the whoremongers, the sorcerers, the idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death”.
I have revealed this to you before, but let me remind you to always be mindful that the cross on Calvary should always be a sign unto you of the great love that I have for you, as well as a sign to you that I am always willing to give my all unto you. I am willing to give my kingdom to you as well as the equality of my divine nature. For those who are like unto me are one with me; and those who are one with me are like unto me. So will you let the cross that I have asked for you to take up always be a sign unto me that you desire for me to clothe you with my divine nature? Will you let your daily cross also signify unto me that you no longer desire to be a citizen of this world? Will you show me your cross daily by asking for me to destroy the wisdom of this world that births all iniquity, all wickedness, all uncleanness, all lies, all that is profane, all evil, all deceitfulness and guile, and all sin? Will you let this cross always be a sign before me that expresses your dead nature behind? Again, the cross that I have asked you to take up is not about your power to destroy but it is sign unto me of your desire that will allow for me to destroy that which you are not able to by my power. Those who take up their crosses in this life are those who allow for me to destroy in them now that which shall be judged in the great judgment; for now is the only time that judgment is accompanied with mercy and grace. Those who escape the judgment to come are those who take up their crosses to crucify that which shall be judged and condemned in the Day of the great Judgment.
GALATIANS 6:14-16 “God forbid that I should glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision avails anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God”.
EPHESIANS 2:13-19 “But now in Christ Jesus you who were sometimes far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of partition between us; having abolished in his flesh the enmity (the words/thoughts of the carnal mind) , even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; and that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: and came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God”.
Man is so vain in his thinking because natural man thinks that I am in the image that his thoughts desire for me to be. Man thinks that I love who he loves and that I dislike who he dislikes. Man thinks that it takes for me to have a good reason to be able to love men, but I am not at all after the image of those words/thoughts. I am unconditional love, and there is no reasoning that has any power to change the love that I have for all men. I am always here for you, as well as for all men, with unconditional love. I love you when you are weak; I love you when you are strong. I love when you are disobedient; I love you when you obey. I love when you sin; I love you when you do righteously. I love you when you are lost; I love you when you are with me. I love when you praise me; I love you when you forget me. I love you when you turn from me; I love you when you walk with me. I love you when you provoke me to anger; I love you when you humble yourself. I love you when you do not know me; I love you when you move with me. I love you when you believe my words/thoughts; I love you when you do my words/thoughts. I love you when you fall; I love you when you stand fast; I love you when you walk after your own words/thoughts; I love you when you receive my words/ thoughts. I love you when you are confused and frustrated; I love you when are at peace with me. I love you when you refuse me; I love you when you allow for me to correct you. I love you when you are out of my will; I love you when you are in my will. I love you when you are sick; I love you when you are healthy. I love you when you sin; I love you when you are holy. I love you when you forsake me; I love you when you return to me. I love you when you do not think that I love you; I love you when you are in my presence. My love for you is unconditional; and only those who have my wisdom can truly understand this.
PSALM 50:21 (NKJ) “These things you have done, and I kept silent. You thought that I was altogether like you; but I will rebuke you, and set them in order before your eyes”.
As it is written, “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son so that whosoever should believe on him should not perish but have everlasting life”. I love all men so much that I have given to all of you my only begotten Son, whom I have made to be wisdom for you so that you might come to know the length, the depth, the width, and the height of my love. What is the length, the depth, the width, and the height of “unconditionally”? What are the boundaries that can be put on the love that I have for you? I am an everlasting loving spirit, and I have put no limitations on myself as to what I will do for you. Only the counsels of your fears, your doubts, and your unbelief that are birthed forth from wisdom of this world, are able to put boundaries on the love that I desire to show you and limitations on the great and mighty works that I desire to do for you. I have made to be wisdom for you, the wisdom that is the loving spirit of God, so that by me, you may come to love your brethren, your neighbor, your spouses, and your enemies as I love them: unconditionally! I am love. My Father is love. I and my Father are one. I am the wisdom of love, and all those who possess me are one with me; and those who are one with me are one with our heavenly Father. You know that my love has not left any of you without a way to escape this eternal damnation that awaits all those who continue to walk after the desires of the wisdom of this world. But who will take up the cross of love?
EPHESIANS 3:14-21 “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant to you according to the riches of his glory, so that you might be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
Only those who have my wisdom know that I am able to work good out of all the circumstances and situations that arise in their hearts. Only those who have my wisdom know that I never think to do you evil, only good. Even when evil comes upon you, it is only because you have gone out of the way, and I allow the evil to come upon you so that you might know that you have erred and that I desire for you to turn back to me. Those who are wise in their own eyes would like to know my love, but without my wisdom, it is impossible for them to believe that my love for them is unconditional love. I have told you before that I am only able to bless those who believe on my love. Even so, I am still there for all those who are wise in their own eyes, who do not believe on me, hoping that at any moment, they may desire to take up their cross and repent of the entity of this world’s wisdom. Focus only on me, and I will come quickly to you. It never enters the thoughts of my mind to forsake any of you; I am always with you, even until the end of this natural world as well as to the end of the world within. My love towards you never grows cold; for it is only your love for me that can grow cold. When I send the wisdom of my words/thoughts to you, I am sending forth only that which comes forth from the unconditional love that I have for you. My love and my grace is that which the wisdom of this world cannot hear nor comprehend.
MATTHEW 24:11-13 “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity (self-righteous hypocrisy) shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Are you ready for my appearing? Be ready! Are you ready for me to avenge you of the wisdom of this world that has made me her enemy? Are you ready for me to come and destroy that which desires to keep you allied with her? When I come, will I find the faith in you that believes I am going to make all things new? When I come, will I find you ready to allow my brightness to this darkness? But who will stand when I appear? I am not coming to those who are not prepared to receive me. I am coming in those who have been wise to wait on my wisdom. I am not coming to those who are clothed in the foolishness of the this world’s wisdom; the wisdom that deceives men with the illusion that they are as the image of their own brilliance. I am coming for those who are of a broken and contrite heart; those who have taken up their cross to die to the principalities, the powers, the rulers of darkness of this world, and the wicked spirits that once sat on the throne of the high places in their minds. At my appearing, all those who have not taken up their crosses and died to the brilliance of their own wisdom shall weep and they shall gnash their teeth in regret when they witness those who were ready receive the brilliance of my wisdom; the wisdom that they could have so freely and abundantly had they sought and asked for it. Are you ready? What are you thinking, and who is doing your thinking for you?
MATTHEW 24:44 “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man comes.
LUKE 18:7,8 “And shall not God avenge his own elect, those who cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Never-the less when the Son of man comes, shall he find faith on the earth?
MATTHEW 25:1-13 “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto 10 virgins who took their lamps and went forth to meet the bridegroom; and 5 of them were “wise”, and 5 were “foolish”. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them; but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, “Behold, the bridegroom comes; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, “Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out”. But the wise answered, saying, “Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves”. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, “Lord, Lord, open to us”. But he answered and said, “Truly I say to you, I know you not”. Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man comes”.
1 CORINTHIANS 3:19 “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God”.
