A Mystery Unveiled

Published by under Spiritual

What did JESUS mean when He said, ” I was hungry and you gave me food…I was in prison and you came to see me,” etc.? (Matthew 25: 35-40). I have often pondered on this. Surely He did not mean that the “Christ Seed” or “Christ Consciousness” was in everyone! That would be a New Age interpretation. In her writings, Mother Teresa states that her poor were JESUS Himself in distressing disguise. (Please know that I do not embrace her doctrine of making a Buddhist a better Buddhist or a Hindu a better Hindu!) She herself was very much in union with JESUS, and seeing Him in everyone was what gave her the momentum to continue her exemplary work.This morning the LORD spoke to me on this scripture in Matthew: He said, “This level of awareness is only possible for you to achieve when I have bestowed My Father’s heart upon you because He sees each of His children as His finished product. . .perfect. . .completed…exactly like Me. So as you approach those “in the world,” you are able to look through the appearances, the sin, to see each one as born again, delivered, set free, completed. Thus you shall see Me within them not only in a “futuristic” sense, but also in the eternal dimension where there is no time. In Father’s economy these little ones were saved from the foundation of the world when I was slain for all men..”Thus it becomes a mystical experience . . .a beautiful way for you to perceive and interact with those around you.. In each one you behold the Lamb of God, treat them as such, love them as you do Me, and watch them as they surrender their lives to Me. That prisoner’s and thief’s old lives were clearly not working for them, and they must be born again, born from above, and make Me LORD, Master, and King of their lives. Yes, see all through the eyes of God as born again children of the Most High.”

So that is the mystery of the scripture in Matthew unveiled! My heart swells as I think of the homeless woman by my grocery store and behold My LORD! Will I not come to Her rescue in some way. . .through prayer, through a meal for the night, in direction to a homeless shelter? In whatever way I am enabled, I choose to meet that need, for here is my LORD in “distressing disguise.” Amen.

O little one whom I see

poor, ragged, distressed,

dealing drugs, addicted,

stealing for a fix,. . ..

I pour out my love to you,

for in Father’s realms

you are all light, love,

LIFE and beauty. . .

I am no better than you are,

no, not at all

for

in the end we shall lie

prostrate together

before our LORD and King . . .

I love you, little one.

I love you with Father’s Heart.

And that is where

I shall carry you. . .

allow His misty Presence within

to rain down upon you

in the form of prayer

until you say “Yes,” and

“I do.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“And all of the inhabitants of the earth will fall down in adoration and pay homage, everyone whose name has not been recorded in the Book of Life of the lamb that was slain [in sacrifice] from the foundation of the world.”

Revelation 13:8

“I assure you, most solemly I tell you, unless a man is born of water and [even] the Spirit, he cannot [ever] enter the kingdom of God.

“What is born of [from] the flesh is flesh [of physical is physical); and what is born of the Spirit is spirit.

“Marvel not [do not be surprised or astonished] at My telling you, You must be born anew (from above.)”

 John 3: 5-7

The New Age Movement

Published by under Spiritual

The New Age Movement is difficult to define as a singular religion; it is a movement. As a theology there is nothing “new” about it as it is based on the concept that we are divine…the very same deception that the serpent in the Garden of Eden used to deceive Eve into mankind’s original sin. It appeals to SELF and thus to the PRIDE of life. The movement is a essentially a collection of eastern -influenced metaphysical thoughts, ideologies, and philosophies that are bound together by universal tolerance. All spiritual “masters” including Jesus are accepted as having made a valuable contribution. The New Age Movement is the result of the natural progression of secular-humanism. It teaches that human beings have evolved biologically (evolution) and also spiritually to the ultimate attainment of deity. All people are endowed with a divine presence, but not all have been “awakened” to this insight. The person of Jesus Christ has nothing to do with man’s return to a deified state. The term Spirit is used, but it does not refer to the Holy Spirit.Man himself is the central figure in the New Age Movement. He is viewed as divine and progressing toward a kind of godhood or “Christ-consciousness.” This term is the one most frequently used. One simply needs to tap into the universal and personal “Christ-consciousness” to be awakened to the fact of his own deity. God is seen in all things and most often in nature. God and nature are often equated so that a form of pantheism is implicated.

Many New Age practices are designed to guide man through the spiritual evolution needed to achieve godhood. Astral projection (the training of your soul to have out of body experiences…In Christianity, the Holy Spirit is able to take the soul/spirit into other realms…it is not a volitional act!), contacting “spirit guides,” using crystals to purify and balance the energy systems of the body, soul, and spirit (sometimes referred to as aura balancing), meditation, chanting, and drumming are among these practices. Most metaphysical people believe in Karma and reincarnation.

New Agers also use Christian terms because they view Jesus as a man who was the first to recognize His own deity; He was tuned into His “Christ-consciousness!” Others believe He simply excelled in spiritual evolution and progression. They are actually very beautiful and seductive teachings revolving around forgiveness, peace, love, and joy. As mature Christians we have hopefully been so purified that we too enjoy these fruits of the Holy Spirit. They see that all of mankind is becoming more spiritually evolved so that we will enter into a new age where we are all one and joined together in the bonds of love. Thus, they perceive the end result as we do except that the process is completely different. Neither Jesus nor the workings of the Holy Spirit are needed. (Please visit the blog “Union with God” on this website for a description of our process into a deified state). They do not acknowledge judgment on the Earth nor any tribulation or trouble prior to this new age or “Age of Aquarius.”

The following are some ways in which the New Age Movement differs from Christianity”

NEW AGE MOVEMENT

God is an impersonal force.

God is simply part of creation as we are.

There is no sin – only error or misunderstanding of truth.

Heaven and hell do not exist; they are states of mind.

Jesus is a man who exemplified “Christ-consciousness” and the

divinity that man is.

CHRISTIANITY

God is personal. He is our heavenly Father and the Creator of all things.

Because of original sin in the Garden of Eden, we are all born with a sinful nature.

Jesus Christ was the ultimate sacrificial Lamb of God Who died for our sins

(and became sin) once and for all.

There is a dark realm someplace as Jesus said there would be “weeping and gnashing

of teeth.”  The book of revelation describes a literal heaven, and Jesus invited the

thief on the cross beside Him into “Paradise.” We do not support the traditional belief

that this dark place of correction is eternal as we subscribe to the firm belief that through

the Atonement all of creation will be reconciled back to the Father.

Jesus is the Son of God and God incarnate. He is the Savior of all mankind…of all creation.

~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~

Sometimes people in the New Age Movement make reference to the Holy Bible, but they pervert the Scriptures as will be seen in the next blog on A Course of Miracles. Their “bible” is in fact called A Course in Miracles which Oprah Winfrey is now teaching along with many other New Age doctrines. She is promoting Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra and additional leading New Age authors and speakers. Unfortunately, there are Kingdom ministers and teachers who are not only endorsing these people but claim they are “on the cutting edge of leading God’s people!”

These deceptions will be prayerfully presented in succeeding blogs on this website.

Bill and Elaine Cook have done some excellent writing on this topic. Please visit their website, “Gospel of the Kingdom” linked with my own to find related material.

The NEW DAY shall burst forth at an hour when ye least expect it, so purify thyselves. My glorious Children, soon, oh so soon, thou shalt be made whole, completed, as My manifested Sons and Daughters.

Union with God

Published by under Spiritual

This is a teaching given to me by the LORD many years ago on the exact process of Union with our Heavenly FATHER. It was originally presented with a series of diagrams which I am unable to load on to this website, so I ask you to please visualize the images as I describe them. It is really very simple as the true things of the LORD tend to be.This article is being presented as a reference point and platform for my forthcoming discussion of New Age doctrine and how it has crept very subtly into the camp of the beautiful Kingdom message. I am doing a great deal of research on this which is extremely difficult (except for His GRACE which accompanies the entire project) as I must review New Age teachings from various sources. It takes me back to memories I would prefer not to re-enter, but as I personally went through the New Age movement and nearly lost my life as a result in 1983, I feel called to serve as a type of “touchstone” in this area. Thus, I believe the LORD has appealed to me to expose these doctrines while at the same time shedding light on the simplicity of the Truth of the Gospel. It is not my intent to condemn any man as to be deceived is simply to be deceived. I certainly was, but I was still His Child! We are , however, asked to test the spirits to see whether they be Truth or falsity. With that background let us begin to understand the process of what we call SANCTIFICATION.

We were originally created or generated out of the Father as living soul/spirits. Some say we were simply spirits, but it is our soul that is made up of our mind, will, and emotions. Father created these aspects of us in the beginning, and they will essentially remain a part of us throughout eternity. They are our PERSONALITY.

There are three levels of sanctification – the spirit, the soul, and finally the body.

1) When our soul/spirit is sent here from the glorious eternal realms, it has a soul (the mind, will, and emotions) and a HUMAN spirit which is equipped with a divine RECEPTOR, a tiny piece of God which makes all creatures long for their return to God. I must presume that even after the fall, (original sin), our Creator, in His infinite mercy, left particles of Himself within this receptor as a type of magnetic force (to be drawn to His LOVE-FIELD of ENERGY). Please note that this has nothing to do with JESUS. . .it is NOT what some are calling our Christ self or Christ SEED. At this point please picture a round circle representing the soul and a small lighted candle within it representing the human spirit with the receptor ( the flame).

2) At the time of the soul’s salvation (spiritual summons by God to JESUS CHRIST), this human spirit unites with the Spirit of JESUS (the ONLY Way back to God). In a sense the LORD impregnates the soul with Himself; (the Amplified Bible makes reference to the “Divine Sperm.”) The “inner Man” is formed, and the soul is now redeemed through the precious shed BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST. Many believers discontinue their journey here to live under grace and perform good works. Please picture something akin to an arrow coming in through the top of the circle and uniting with that human spirit’s receptor or “flame”. At this point a very small circle (the beginning of our inner Man) appears within the larger circle of the soul. We refer to this experience as the Feast of Passover.

3)At the time of the Baptism of the HOLY SPIRIT, the inner Man is filled with a new vibrancy of LIFE. . .the BREATH of the HOLY SPIRIT which JESUS has brought as a GIFT. The inner Man or Child begins to grow. Picture beams of light, life, and love emanating from that small inner circle and permeating the soul (outer circle). This is referred to as the Feast of Pentecost. Now, of course, the gifts of the Holy Spirit begin to manifest.

4) The Child or inner Man GROWS through the workings of the Holy Spirit (often tender but sometimes violent!) The inner Man is like an OCEAN. The soul can be likened to the SAND on a beach. All of the sand (soul) will ultimately be caught up by the waves of the Spirit of GOD and brought into the OCEAN (which is GOD). At any given moment the soul (mind, will and emotions) is responding to one of two strong influences. . .the SIN PRINCIPLE into which it was born as a result of the fall of mankind, OR to the SPIRIT of GOD resident within. When the soul remains passive and yielded to the SPIRIT of GOD, the Christian is walking in the Spirit.

The soul and the divine inner Man can also be pictured as two oxen inseparably yoked. If the soul permits the lead oxen (indwelling Spirit of GOD) to truly LEAD, he/she can peacefully follow along. As the soul does this, he/she is at REST. To achieve permanent REST or union with GOD is the goal. . .the Christian’s REASON for being here. . .his/her experience of TABERNACLES or COMPLETION. That person’s destiny will then be fulfilled as he/she is fully prepared to be placed into position within the true Body of CHRIST. Please picture the inner circle growing with the workings of the Holy Spirit. More and more of the soul is taken captive to the Spirit of God and is thus “divinized.” The sanctified parts of our soul are divine. Whether the soul is being “absorbed” by the inner Man as Jeanne Guyon describes it or whether the inner Man reaches out into the cells of our soul or BOTH is a mystery.

It is because more and more of our soul is absorbed into and united with the Spirit of JESUS and GOD (and thus divine in nature) that I have trouble with doctrines that say that we are nothing and God is everything. It is indeed true that our unsanctified soul is nothing, but that part of us already in Union with God is extremely powerful and full of the LIGHT, LIFE, and LOVE of our Father.

The outer circle (our unsanctified soul) is becoming smaller and smaller in this process, although it is still very much able to yield to the temptations of the Sin Principle. It is in this small outer circle that fine tuning is greatly needed, and God is working mightily now to complete the souls called to His Company of Firstfruits.

5) The Christian has merged with God. There is now only one circle as the two have become ONE. We are Bone of His Bone and Flesh of His Flesh. Throughout this process each one has different experiences. Some talk about “the mystical marriage” and still others about “the incarnation of JESUS within them.” These individual experiences are special graces from the LORD, and all that matters is that we are fully in the Feast of Tabernacles or Union with GOD. Hallelujah. Let us each press on to the mark of the high calling of God in Christ JESUS. It is sometimes thought that in this lovely process our soul rather “disappears.” Nothing could be further from the Truth! Our soul is returning to its original state in God. We shall still possess our UNIQUENESS. . .our personality, but it shall be Christ-like in every way. . .exceedingly more glorious than it was in its unsanctified state!

6) The final stage of our process is the redemption of the physical body. This can, of course, be represented by a third circle. Whether this is occurring gradually or will be a rather sudden experience, I am not given to know. The LORD told me several weeks ago that my body was now being filled with “Living Light.” He also told me years ago that the cells of my body were being changed. As my soul is not yet fully sanctified, I must conclude that some changes in the body are indeed occurring. I personally believe that we will soon be walking in divine health as our Pattern Brother, JESUS, did during His earthly ministry. During that time, He demonstrated on the Mount of the Transfiguration, that He was capable of manifesting in His body, but He did not walk in a resurrected, transfigured body until after the crucifixion and resurrection. Thus, all of this remains a mystery for which we await expectantly with JOYFUL hearts! Let us praise the LORD for this beautiful GIFT of salvation and bow down before His Spirit Who is working so hard to bring our soul and our body into the COMPLETION for which we all yearn. . .and for which our LORD and loving Father yearn in even greater measure. Thank You, LORD.

Please make a special mental note that this process does NOT include any kind of “awakening” or revelation of ourselves as divine or even as God Himself!! This is a central message of New Age theology. It is the way in which the serpent tempted Eve in the Garden! Watch for this in your readings and know that these revelations are old and are not consistent with the message of the Bible. The Scriptures can easily be used to support any theology under the sun, but keep the beautiful story of the entire Bible in mind at all times. To stray from it is indeed to lose the anointing!

JESUS Himself said, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me. John 14:6

“I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward. Paul to the Philippians 3:14 (Written from prison)

“But God – so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and intense love with which He loved us.

“Even when we were dead (slain) by our own shortcomings and trespasses, He made us alive together in fellowship and in union with Christ: [He gave us the very life of Christ Himself, the same new life with which He quickened in Him for] it is by grace (his favor and mercy which you did not deserve) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation).

“And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One).”

Ephesians 2:4-6

“No one is able to come to Me unless the Father Who sent Me attracts and draws him and gives him the desire to come to Me, and [then] will raise him up from the dead] at the last day.”

John 6:44

(It is here that the God-given “spiritual receptor comes into play. . .that desire of the Father for His creature unites with the creature’s innate desire to reunite with its Creator.)

Shekinah GLORY

Published by under Spiritual

It is late on the evening of Friday April 4, 2008. For three days now I have heard the Words “Glory, Glory, Glory.” It is so pronounced tonight, and I feel it raining down upon me. Whether this is actually happening to me or is a call to rise up and record the Words of our LORD, I do not claim to know. The anointing has been very strong for the past several days. This prophecy is similar to one posted on my website last week. He is saying:There are funnels or chutes of GLORY over certain ones sweeping across the lands to call them into an absolute surrender to My Will. It falls like rain upon them. . .a heavy pounding rain. . .a true STORM of My GLORY from which there is no escape. Yea I hold these hostage for a heart circumcision and the bestowing of the GOLDEN CROWN of the Mind of Christ. It provides a gateway for them into a new level of their walk with Me. All of heaven applauds as they behold this selective storm of GLORY rain; these chosen are the First Wave of My Firstfruit Sons and Daughters… being prepared. . .equipped with tremendous rapidity.  In the past these anointings have lifted, but I do a NEW THING – I seize and hold My bond slaves unto My Holy Breast, and I breathe the very Life and Spirit of Father into them. It is a CHANGE. . .not the redemption of the body but a transformation that will greatly facilitate that majestic event. So hold still as their Surgeon cuts deeply, yea wounds their very souls so they can emerge in total FREEDOM.  This is a freedom and victory march such as you never dreamed possible. These GLORY chutes allow the CROSS-over – note – the emphasis on CROSS for surely their private, unique Calgaries are implicated. Yet there is also a Calgary-Grace – yea a GRACE for ASCENSION of their spirits into a newer and much higher dimension. And with it comes a restoration of the POWER and AUTHORITY in which I walked during My earthly ministry. These perceive quickenings to ACT and MOVE with great speed, and they must be alert at all times and in all places regardless of the circumstances. Did you think that the dead could no longer be raised, the blind eyes not be given sight, the deaf ears be not opened, the sick not restored to perfect health? Dear children, the hour hast come for these signs and wonders and many more, for greater works shall they do than I ever demonstrated. Be mindful, this grace is bestowed upon just a FEW, and by their FRUITS shall you know them.“If you find yourself immersed in My GLORY PRESENCE right now. . .REJOICE!. . .for you are one step closer to full redemption of spirit, soul, and body. Within these rain clouds lie the seven Spirits of our mighty Father, and they are truly being imparted to those whose hearts have HUNGERED. . .HUNGERED. . .HUNGERED – waited with unrelenting PATIENCE and sought Me with clean hands and a pure heart. And if this particular GLORY shower has passed you by, prepare yourself for the next one coming right upon its heels, for I call wave upon wave now to RISE UP and BE GLORIFIED. You shall be able to manifest your Father’s GLORY at will as I did, yet your will shall be ONE with My Will. . .an answer to My prayer “Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.”

“It is a birthing, dear Ones, and whether or not you are a part, REJOICE . .for all wondrous things are a SIGN unto you. I have My forerunners. Look to them and follow their lead for I surely reside in great fullness within these CHOSEN FEW. And through them the Shekinah is poured out over the Earth, throughout the universe, into the cosmic spheres, and ascends to these precious Ones gathered around My Throne. Those in waiting here rejoice for they too will be closer to completion! Think of it. Dream of it. Hope for it. BECOME it. If you are drawn by the Spirit resting heavily upon these Words, your DAY draweth nigh for the sake of My pitiful compressed and confounded Creation awaiting your redemption. Yes, their darkness shall be peeled away in the twinkling of an eye by the brightness, yea the BRILLIANCE of the LIGHT emanating from these SEALED VESSELS of REDEMPTION. All of Creation has paused, is alerted to this coming manifestation of My Sons and Daughters. Pause and think on these things for they are weighty. . .and they are for YOU.”
