PT 2. Leaving Babylon, Hats, Coverings and Lordship

 Jesus Christ told the disciples, I have many things to say to you however you are not able to bear them. However the Spirit of Truth will come and teach you all things. These are of the things taught by The Spirit of Truth.

Paul speaks in 1st Corinthians 11, and asks them to follow the ordinances that he delivered to them. He told that that “I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head. But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head. 

There is a reason women and children wear the family name as a last name passed on from the father. This is a picture of what it means to be “in Christ” who came in The Name of the Father. We wear His name of “Christians” as a banner for our family name. In this way “we are members of the household of God and joint heirs of the things in Christ”. We use the same methods as Jesus did and have access to our Heavenly Father. This is why Jesus said “ask the Father anything in My name and He will do it. He has us covered.

In 1 Corinthians 11, Paul was teaching them safe procedures of how to correctly pray and prophesy, of receiving from God to give to those under their care. They are secure and covered in this way. That if someone is not under the correct covering, protection, authority, or influence from God, there would be inherent dangers. That they would be opened up to intrusions and violations from familiar spirits and fallen angels.

Even as Paul said that “women should be covered because of angels”. This is more clearly understood in Genesis 6 where the fallen angels came into the uncovered, unprotected daughters of men. The unmarried and unprotected were opened and exposed to ungodly influences and entities because they were not covered correctly. They were left open and exposed to other powers with other names and logos.

This is why God wants us to apply His covering on a spiritual level, and the reason Paul said in that same chapter about wearing hats and scarves, that “the church had no such customs”. Meaning, to be covered is not a physical one of talking about hats and scarves so much as it is about leadership, authority and protection. Paul only uses hats and hair as symbols and analogies of the spiritual.

It is the invisible realm where these things apply. God is not happy with people only obeying the physical mandates outlined in the scripture, without understanding the invisible counterpart. And for those who wear hats and scarves without knowing this, they do them no good. They are “symbols of authority” but not the authority themselves. Same with all the articles of faith. The faith is in God not the article.

As we always say, scripture is given to make visible invisible realities.

Paul is talking about coverings and about not being open and exposed to other influences and competing spirits who seek to bring you under their coverage and for protection. In our day that is done with socially engineered contracts that bind you, and make you there prisoners. They call there prisoners customers. How nice of them.

This is why Paul said that “you cannot partake of the Lords table and demons”. Meaning, you cannot intermingle God’s wares and His provisions to us made known through the gospel, with those of the world that are supplied by the competition. It is spiritual adultery to go to the powers of this age for covering and protection, and then to think God uses those methods that you purchased with your money to protect you. You cannot serve God and Mammon. Therefore you are on your own, you made your choice and made a contract with other providers. You are under their care now.

This is why Jesus said of those who came to him in that day and said, Lord open up to us. Did we not cast out many demons in your name? To which He said “depart from me you workers with iniquity I never knew you from where you are from“. Meaning you’ve gone to others and placed your trust in them and there is a breach between you and Him. A breach of contract.

So learn what this means, we are in the world but of not the world. We have different instruments for our safety and we’ll being. You need to be careful whose products you use, the ones you’ve paid for from Mammon, or the ones you’ve prayed for from God. You cannot serve God and Money, nor can you serve two master’s for you will love one and hate the other” so you choose.

In God’s economy there is no valid use for the phrase “what if” or “just in case” because God has no gaps in coverage or short sightedness for you to be concerned. As if to say to God “no worries here God, I got this covered. You can stay there, I don’t need you on this one”. This is a departure , hence “I don’t know you from where you are from“.

You don’t need policy overlaps for broader coverage. God is light and in Him is no darkness. So gaps, shortages and forgetfulness are not shortcomings of His salvation package for us. He has is all covered. So much so in fact “Christ is the covering for the whole world” however many still reject Him.

The correct understanding of that phrase is that God covers those who are His without the world’s help.

There is only one currency in Gods economy and it doesn’t have pictures of dead man on them. Scripture says that if we ask anything in the name of Jesus, He will do it, because we wear His name, He has it covered. And because all things were made by the power of Gods word, we shouldn’t think that there is any better tool to get what we need out of life then to just ask God. “It’s the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” along with everything that is in it. And it is all “good, very good”.

Even as scripture says, that the Heavenly Angels behold the father’s face in these little ones, therefore we should not be surprised if they do whatever we ask them. This is because we wear the name of the father. We are “in Christ”. He is our banner, and The Logos of God. Even as Jesus said “I am ascending to my God and your God, and My Father and your Father, showing us our new heritage and family name.

A point to be noted here is that when God made humanity in the beginning in His likeness. It is evident that He meant for there to be no other powers between humanity and Himself by telling Adam to go forth and have dominion, to rule and reign like His image. There was no other powers for Mankind to sucomb to than God. So any other powers that demand our allegiance for protection now, are userpers and liars. We get the reversal of the fall, our empowerment of being made in the image of God, and our inheritance that is on Christ.

The writer of Hebrews says that ‘angels are ministering agents sent forth to those who inherit salvation”. Meaning angels are subservient to God’s people, not the other way around. They are not suppose to charge for their services.

If you remember Jesus being tried by Satan trying to trick Him to hurt Himself because scripture says God has given angels charge over His safety and “‘In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ Showing us Jesus had all the insurance policies He needed.

Jesus stated “you cannot serve God and money”. So you know what tools you need to use to get your covering and coverage providers from and by which methods you use to get them, prayer or money, God’s instruments or man’s. Your choice. God’s table or demons.

It is the spiritual forces of darkness that seek wayward souls who are opened up and uncovered to carry out their wicked schemes.  This is what we are to be aware of. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but they are mighty through God for pulling down strongholds every lofty thing that sets itself up against the knowledge of God”. Against us knowing and applying God’s purposes in our lives to rule and reign now. This is what the gospel restored. And through proper coverings and headship God’s provisions are distributed correctly.

When Paul says that “women are to be covered because of angels”, he is directly speaking of things from Genesis chapter 6 where the self-proclaimed sons of God, went into the daughters of men, all whom they had selected. This is the need to be in the family of God and His authority under His covering with His provisions and policies.

The word “authority” comes from “author” and infers the idea that God is our author, and our authorization when we are under His care and tutalidge. This is what it means to be “in Christ”. He is the author and finisher of our faith.

When you go to use your alternate providers, you have to get their authorization to use their remedies because it may not be covered under the services you subscribed to.

It is that when someone opens up their vessels to pray, prophecy or transmit in the spirit, and they don’t have the right protection and authorization from God to do it, they can be opened up to receiving and transmitting all kinds of other spirits, or false coverings and protections, or protectors for deception and spiritual adultery.

This is what provokes the Lord to jealousy. That you esteem other services of protection to assay your fears of “what if” and “just in case” in place of the promises of God.

By trusting other providers and coverages, you remove yourself from the covering God gives you as defined by His word. You contract with another. You agree to services and terms and conditions that cover their hind side, not yours.

But God says “come out from among them (put them off) and be ye separate, and I will receive you. And you shall become My sons and daughters”. There are choices with responses we all need to take to work out our own salvation.

God also says “and come out and be separate”, is to go through a separation. It is to go through a divorce from those lower case gods that you glorify by trusting them and subscribing to their services with contracts and monthly payments. You are beholden to them. This is an unholy alliance because they are unclean. They have stolen your soul from God and you gladly accept it. You subscribe to, and put yourself under them. You are in agreement with them, you are in contract with them. You are under their coverage, you are covered by them. This is spiritual adultery and God says “I cannot hear you from where you are from. Someone else has you covered.

You are under a cloud and God just does not make sense to you. But don’t blame Him or think it’s God’s fault or His will when you feel abandoned. You brought it on yourself with your other powers, providers and lower case gods of this age. So “Come out from among them and be ye separate. If you subscribe to the views in scripture, and trust God at His word, go through your divorce to this world by throwing away your wares of this age, and put on the assorted promises of God from scripture. “Be ye renewed in the spirit of your mind that ye may know God’s good, acceptable and perfect will. If you are “in Christ” you are”in the world but not of this world”. Your tools are other worldly

The old Covenant picture shows the Israelites were followed by a cloud and that cloud was Christ. That cloud represents their covering, safety, provider, protectorant and their health. God fed them, clothed them and even cleaned their teeth. This does not mean you don’t have to do anything to be safe and healthy, but you do have to subscribe to the simple methods and cures offered to us as we follow the unction, or leading of the Holy Spirit. This is our teacher our comforter and God’s other parent as He said I will not leave you orphans. I will send you My Helper. Who also said “oh how I want to gather you ad a Mother Hen gathers her chicks” under her covering. This is a picture of what we have if we cooperate and place ourselves firmly underneath these promises. Be covered like this.
