The book of “The Revelation of Jesus Christ” spoke of those “who follow the lamb wherever he goes,” who “have not been defiled by women”.
NKJV Genesis 15.1 The Lord came to Abraham saying “I am your Shield, your exceedingly great reward.” Throughout history Abraham is referred to as the father of faith. Abraham passes on to us the Promises given to him by the Lord.
When God gave promise to Abraham saying, “I am your Shield your exceedingly great reward,” those who believe in like manner have this promise as well.
What makes His Shield exceedingly great is that it is far superior to all the shields of this world. If God made a shield, or a force field, what could get past Him as though you could sneak up behind Him? What could penetrate or void His terms and conditions? What could negate God’s obligation to perform His word over and above Him? As if there is something or someone more powerful than God? Our faith is our only obstacle to implementing His words. You doubt His Word and seek protection elsewhere.
This Shield of faith is an invisible force field, able to throw off all the fiery darts of the wicked. It is able to also put us outside of harm’s reach of many other things. It is equal to our participation in our personal sanctification. Which is? To abstain and purify ourselves from the counterfiet provisions of today.
When Christ prayed to the Father in John 17.16 to keep His people from evil, the Father answered that prayer then because He always heard the Only Begotten. John 11.42
The ruler of this world has been judged. (John 16.11)
God does not dwell in symbols or things made of man’s devising. There are no man-made cities Societies or structures that are pleasing to God . But for the God of this age they are. And it is with these counterfeits that he steals the affections of the hearts of people who have rejected the cross of the Christ to implement other gods for them to be condemned, and Satan will fill full his role. He is the God of the vacuum. This is “the one who is coming is according to Satan with all lying signs and wonders with all lying signs and wonders if possible to deceive the elect”.
This is a duplication of the things people are associated with God through symbols, including the old Covenant. They reject “The Kingdom of God at hand” for another. Christ said “Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.” (Mt 16.23)
The Kingdom of God is at hand” does not mean it is eminent. It means Gods Kingdom is operational and active even now.
There are so many distractions from the faith and in the faith that it is easy to be distracted and get on tangents. There are many false and partial gospels to get caught up in.
Warning! Anything that stops you short of the conclusion of Gods work in you now, is to be partially saved and held in limbo. Even as Paul said “I seek to lay hold of why Christ laid hold of me”. So we must persist for the same cause lest we fall short of the grace of God. Paul also said “do not let anybody rob you of your reward”. You must learn to apprehend it. To “lay hold” of it.
John 16.8 concurs. The Holy Spirit comes “to reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see (again) me no more (in a carnal way);
11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.” Meaning convicted and incarcerated to the will of God.
“We are complete in Him who is head over all powers and principalities”. There is nothing else, and no one else who completes us. You can fortify yourself against the objects of your fears, but they are still there. There is only one true consolation. The fear of dying is the enemy. Fear is the poison that kills spiritual growth. Death is not so much a one time event of being dead, but a life driven by fear, that causes one to be dead to the provisions from God, gifted to us by His promises in His Son, to be truly free from all fears because “he who fears has not been made perfect in love because fear involves torment”. That’s the fruit given to those who reject Gods covenental provisions. So they turn to the world for comfort and forget the One who is in control.
We see the effects of fear in the parable of the unjust steward who collected funds from his employers accounts to protect himself against joblessness homelessness and fortify his retirement. He said “4 I have resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses”. He was afraid to be without so He created a back-up plan, a retirement plan. This is the product of self-consciousness. We see a brick wall and we don’t know what is on the other side so we protect ourselves against this fear. “He who seeks to save his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for Christ sake will save it”. This is what we are talking about. When you run to the end of your account avigo it is expired. However we can never deplete the resources of the almighty God who said “let there be light” and immediate it appeared without resistance.
There are many who pursue to save the planet and are ignorant of Him who can recreate this with the same simple words. They spend their time and their estimation doing whst they think is good when the good that they do is ignorance of him who did it all.
Romans 1 says of these people 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. Creation serves the creator just fine even now by mirroring to humans the conditions of their hearts.
“If you understand Gods never ending love, and his inexhaustible resources, you can relax your grip on this age and fall into the hands of the almighty God who eagerly awaits you to do so. God said “I will never leave you or forsake you”. But some just cannot have solace in that. So they depart to look for another. This is spiritual adultery that causes blindness to Him who is “at hand”.
So speaking of the wise steward”For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light.9 “And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by unrighteous[d]mammon, that when[e]you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home.”
Fear is the abscence of faith. Your faith has trade in value. But you must let go of your fears to recieve the exchange. If you truly trust God, you don’t need a dependance on a back-up plan. He who said “I will never leave you or forsake you” need not come back in the flesh a second time as a man to fulfill His Word in us. We are complete in Him, if you can receive it. The price was paid at the cross to reverse the curse and undo the fear based mind that started with Adam who said to the Lord “I heard your voice and was afraid”. God knew this would happen. Adam tried to cover it with a fig leaf, and people today are covering themselves with all kinds of things. But the words of job was, Naked I came naked I go, blessed be the name of the Lord.
The truth is God sees through all of our fig leaves and coverings anyway. For the word of the Lord is sharp and Powerful sharper than any two-edged sword dividing even bone and Marrow joints and ligaments it is a discerner of the thoughts of the intent of the heart. Then there is nothing hidden from the site with him with whom we have to do. Hebrews 4:12.
You cannot be afraid and trusting God at the same time. Consider the old women who donated her two mites, or in our culture, pennies. That was all she physically had, but for us the elect? She truly trusted in God and was spoken of for our guidepost. Not that God is asking us to live without money, but not to put too much trust in the uncertainty of riches.
The day we have the most money, in the day we have none should be equally joyous. Like the Widow with the two mites, she knew that the greatest joy comes Not from without but from within. Just as it said it’s in the book of James That every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of Lights in whom there is no variableness nor shadow of turning.
Even now, The Kingdom of God is at hand.
If you are still looking to the Physical Realm and planet Earth for the manifestation of the kingdom of God you are going to be sorely disappointed. Why? Because “Eye Has Not Seen Nor Ear heard of the things that God has prepared for those who love him, but God has revealed them to us by his spirit.”
Paul in Romans 9 was speaking of his countrymen said that he wishes he was accursed from Christ instead of them. It was Paul who was referring to the Israelite’s when he was talking about his countrymen who were cut off from God.
When Paul was talking about his countrymen, he understood their despotic estate. He knew that they were cut off from the grace of God. The whole culture could have forgotten and none would have known any of the better. But Paul wanting to explain the difference, said that they were rejected because “they sought not the things of God by faith of believing the invisible. Israel, instead of seeking the things of faith in the invisible sought them as it were by physical findings. These were called “stiff- necked always rejecting the Holy Spirit” because they refused to transform in their understanding from the carnal to spiritual realities.
In today’s news there’s much talk about Israel and the Promised Land. But what is “The Promise Land”? And what is “Israel” according to the Bible? After all, isn’t it the scriptures that define this?
In Exodus 4.22 The Lord spoke to Moses saying “Israel is My son, My firstborn.” So we ask, is that Israel really God’s firstborn son? The answer is no, not that one. That old Israel only depicted and mimicked things that are invisible “in Christ”.
To be in “the promised land” and “in Israel”, and “in Christ” are all synonymous terms describing the same thing.
15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation. 16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.” Showing for us here precisely who Israel is. That we the elect are in the Promised Land, in Israel and “In Christ” of God and not a place on earth, but anywhere two or more are gathered in His name.
We who are “in Christ” are in the fulfillment of all that was written and spoken of both the old and the new covenants. These things belong solely to us who are “in Christ” the true Israel of God and Gods only begotten son. You need not look for another.
Scripture says of Christ that “in Him dwells the fullness of the God head body, and we are complete in Him who is the head of all powers and principalities and principalities”. Another physical Israel on earth only obscures the truth.
The Kingdom of God is at hand. Amen.

The Truth, Patterns and Impersonators Continue reading *The Truth, Patterns and Impersonators
In the very beginning of creation God made contrasts. In the Book of Genesis it says, “The spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters.” The face of the deep being murky and dark as a contrast to the transparency of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit hovered over the waters to see a reflection, but the deep and the dark portrayed something sinister in a diabolical way.
We see these contrasts more fully developed in the Book of The Revelation of Christ, where a Beast rises up out of the waters. The murky deep delivered a distorted reflection of the things of God.
The Beast, explained in short, is the contrast of God. The deep and the dark saw something from above and made a dim, ugly, reflection of it because, “The light shines into darkness, but the darkness does not comprehend it.” In its’ disturbance it sought to imitate what it could not comprehend. That which is holy, just, pure and good, appears ugly, scary, freaky and strange in the reflection of the deep and dark . This is the best portrayal the troubled waters could muster up.
These troubled waters could not engineer something so holy, pure and goodly. What the muddy waters presented to humanity, became a competition. Not that it could compete, except in the fallen, unrepentant, darkened mind, the place of deception, the only place the murky thrives.
How is it the beast comes from nothing in the dark and gets its’ power to exist? Through people’s fear. Our first father feared when he trusted someone other than God. God called out and said, “Adam where are you?” And his reply? “I heard your voice and was afraid.”
In this way Adam gave his crown, his dominion, his decision making processes and personal power to another. He forfeited his crown and the gift of being made in the image of God. Bowing in fear he empowered the author of that fear, Satan, to control him. The power that was resident in Adam to become like God, having dominion and rule, was inverted and he became a slave. He was given dominion over all the earth, but now works the earth with a curse that yields thorns.This was his fall. He lost his faith and trust in the Living God and gave his power to another by fearing that other.
The gospel message was given to, “release those who all their lifetime were subject to the fear of death and subject to bondage.” Hebrews 2.15
But in the beginning there was really nothing in the darkness to be afraid of but fear itself. The unknown; the concept that God might be wrong was entertained and Adam began to unravel. Fear started the downward spiral of anti-faith of the fall that has no bottom.
If Adam fell in a carnal way, his broken bones could be mended and his cuts could heal. But he fell in the spirit of his mind, the place that entertains the deep and where the saving takes place.
There is a Savior for this. We turn from dark to light, from murky, troubled waters to the pure by an act of faith, which is our unseen response to the invisible God.
When Adam turned from God, he did not get the next best thing, he got the exact opposite. Death. “In the day that you eat you shall surely die”. His spiritual separation from God was his immediate death.His body remained in parabolic form for instructive purposes only. Adams death to the invisible things of God was carried out the day he departed from Eden.
Mankind was made to choose between contrasts like light and dark, good and bad, pure and murky. And so this is a contrast for us to exercise our reasoning factors like God has. By choosing God, we exercise our choice to become godly. (Genesis 3) By neglecting this, mankind continues to spiral to a place that has no bottom called Hell, which is the total absence of God. They become more and more savage.
To not choose God is to be asleep to the invisible things of God and neglect our duty to transform in the Here and Now. 2 Cor 3.18. Paul also pleaded with us through the gospel saying “be ye reconciled to the Father! He made him who knew no sin, to become sin” for our safe return. By which we arrive to where God said of His creation, that “it is good, very good”. The curse was nailed to the cross. That is where we exchange our curse for the blessing. Buy each person must represent themselves at the cross for the exchange to take place.
The term Beast is clearly understood as being the antithesis of God. God did not make this. That is why it is called a beast and not a creation. Their perception of heavenly things, they assemble in a physical way. They steal the concepts of God and call them their own. We call this blasphemy. To repurpose God’s things and call them your own. This is, “the delusion,with all lying signs and wonders if possible, to deceive the elect.
Instead of design, it is chaos, instead of life it’s death. It is this Beast that rises out of the deep and presents something to humanity in competition with God, however; it is the contrast. You see that it has a mouth of a lamb, but it’s works are of a lion. Among its tools are murder, theft, apartheid, apostasy and imposters.
It is the inhabitants of the Earth being fearful of this Beast who through ignorance and separation from God, being unaware of their spiritual capacity and their ability to transform through faith, they reject and empower the deep and dark to take on its’ form. Through their ignorance they become implicit in this blasphemy, and will receive the same treatment as all others who have gone before them.
Fear is the motivating factor of those who are carnally minded, because that is what their first father Adam did. By default it is passed on to humanity as a motivating source in the absence of faith in God. Because, “he who fears has not been made perfect in love because fear involves torment.” Fear was the proof that Adam was unraveling.
The book of Isaiah, in chapter 8, describes an aggressor that would, “fill the land of Emmanuel.” By impersonating God with replicas, it consumes those with carnal notions of God, and they remain blind to the one who wisks about them.
This enemy would cause great, great destruction and great fear to fill everything that was good and godly. This is the maturation of the murky reflection of the perverted likeness of God of things made on the Earth.
This is pertinent today for us the elect to understand our calling. The Lord told Isaiah of these people, “Do not walk in the way of this people saying “conspiracy”. Do not be afraid with their fears and do not be dismayed by their threats and at what they see, for they will look at the Earth and see great Darkness and be afraid.” Showing here the mindset of those who have fallen. They run from one fear after the other.
This is what the End Time Gospel presents. It feasts off the non-stop distortions of truth with new end times theories that scatter the sheep of God by confusion. Who is the author of that? Satan. Woe to them.
These people present new fears to adorn and glorify the “fear of all fears.” The end of the world. End times prophecies.” All the prophets were till John the Baptist, Stop! Now the Kingdom is preached and all are entering. But end times seakers speak of another coming kingdom with a future crowned king. He who, “is the same yesterday, today and forever “was “born king” and needs no inauguration on planet earth to implement that Eternal reality. More blasphemy.
Even as Christ said to Herod at His inquisition, you have rightly said that I am King. But my Kingdom is not from here or else I would fight.
So what is God’s exhortation and advice to us about the end times mindset? Again from Isaiah chapter 8, “Let Me be your dread, let Me be your fear. Do not fear those things.” We do not fear those things primarily because it is the very fear that gives life to the beast. The fearful feed it, and empower it, not God.
Faith is the antidote to that enemy. Faith is the vaccination to squelch all fears. God is light and in Him is no Darkness at all. If we are in Christ, we are in this light where there is no dark. It is like waking up from a bad dream to understand that which disturbed us. Fear is really nothing. God did not empower this, but He knew that mankind would. So God made a containment for this. They shall be burned with all the elements of creation. (2 Peter 3.10+)
That is why this Beast exists. People give it power by glorifying it. God’s promises and provisions are more real than they. Why? Because He who said, “Let there be light, and there was light,” said so. Now it’s your choice.
It is man that was made to be good, holy and godly but man has become frittered and fearful. They see the the boogeyman behind every shadowy image presented by the false prophet of today called the media.
The Book of Revelation also talks about, “those who say they are Jews but are not. They are of the synagogue of Satan.” Why is that? I mean, how could the Jews, God’s people, have someone parallel them that is of the synagogue of Satan? It is really quite simple when you understand that all the law and the prophets were fulfilled by Christ. That none of the prophets of the Old Testament have anything forward speaking to us today. (Hebrews 1.1-3) But those who take scriptures out of context from being fulfilled, take them off the shelf of their expiration, breathing new life into them, repackaging them, which induces carnal fear. They present a distortion called Jerusalem today, stealing the things of God for the,”delusion if possible to deceive the elect. (2 Thes 2).
Much like the golden image in the days of Daniel, they must fear the image or be thrown into the fire. So they bow. For those who don’t? They are seen dancing in the fire with another “whose appearance is like the Son of God”.
This is how the bottomless pit gets opened. God didn’t open it. Their fear empowers it. The enemies, whom Christ defeated at the cross, are empowered once again in the same way. Through fear, ignorance and faithlessness, men become cowards, so they cower to something that is not God. Satan is their new god.
You see the true Jews know that their land is with the Messiah, not the other way around. They don’t look for, and work for, the land in hopes of their messiah’s return. “They look to the city whose builder and maker is God.” (Hebrews 11) “Whose composition and design comes down from above and not of earth. Not of hewn stone for that is defiled.” Exodus 20.25
The Orthodox Jew knows this. It is the Zionist Jew who controls others by fear and secrecy, who have stolen the things of God and called them their own. They have stolen names from God and reassembled them in a way that fits them. That is why it is a beast and not a god. It is of their creating, not God’s.
Very much like some tribesman on a desolate island, who puts together branches and wrap them with straw and leaves, packed with mud to make a figure of an airplane, then taking this figure presenting it as god to the rest of the tribe to drive them by fear because they think seeing these things fly in the air, then trick people into serving them because these people think that is what they saw flying in the sky. But, that concoction is a beast, a murky distortion of a true airplane.
That is what today’s Jerusalem is. It is in competition with “that which comes down of God from heaven” whose composition is “according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.” (Revelation 21) Of us who are “living stones built up a habitation of God in the spirit,” “Having been built on the foundations of the apostles and prophets with Jesus Christ the cornerstone.” 1 Peter 2.5, Eph 2.19
You see,the King of Kings and the Lord of lords has never relinquished His power. He who set the course for the stars, and set the boundaries for the waves, has set limits to what this thing can do. These lies from the murky deep can only persuade the murky deep and darkened heart driven by fear with such a monsterous concoction.Woe to them.
But we know Him who said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” And, “Lo, I am with you, even to the ends of the ages.” And, “What shall separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus? Neither height, nor depth, nor powers, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come shall separate us from the love of God that is in Christ. We are more than conquerors through all these things.” Amen
If you expect to see a fish or a boat you would look in the water. For a bird or an airplane you would look in the sky. For a dignitary coming to town you may look for a man in a parade. But for Christ you are looking for a man in the sky? How silly.He comes to us in the spirit of our minds.
Even now He says, 20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
What more are you waiting for? A different Jesus? If anyone comes to you teaching another Christ, let them be accursed. So you decide. His kingdom at hand? Or the second coming Kingdom. God’s reality, or the strong delusion. The truth or the lie. The Kingdom of God is at hand in this way. This is the one-time, public offering that expires when you don’t need faith to believe.
Blasphemy and the Beast
The Lord said, “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
His things are higher than our things. To equate the things of the immortal, eternal, invisible God with ours is to profane them. To take God’s things out of context of the holy and other worldly, and think of them as earthly is to make them dirty and despicable.
The Heavens are humanly, immeasurably higher than silly planet earth. The Holy of Holy installed behind the veil out of everyone’s reach portrayed this.
In any society it is an egregious error to impersonate officers and dignitaries. To go forth in public and pretend to be somebody powerful, and assert that authority is a punishable crime.
It is blasphemy to impersonate aspects of God; it is the denial and rejection of God as if He were absent, then to take His place and assert His power as if it were their own. A pretender does this, a mimicker, a wannabe, a counterfeit and a thief.
To repackage the things of God with ungodly, worldly things, and use God’s names on them is blasphemy of the highest order. It is not forgiven in this age or the other age.When it is done in context of God’s Kingdom, it is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.
There’s a great blasphemy taking place in our day. Someone has stolen the things of God and called them their own. They use them for their own gain. They take the names and concepts of God that are to define something holy and invisible, they neutralize them and put them on Earth. So, “We know those who say they are Jews and are not, but are of the synagogue of Satan.” Yes, Satan has put it in their hearts to re-package God in a different way. It is stolen for the kingdom of the fallen.
The news today commonly talks about catastrophes hurricanes earthquakes Wars and such. But we are called to preach the gospel. The good news. This is God’s answer and solution for mankind. Continue reading Fear, and “end times” Part 1
