    • Christ the Antidote Regarding Death CHRIST THE ANTIDOTE REGARDING DEATH Part 28. A Resurrection Of Life, And Of Judgement!Some of our many readers were querying a statement that we made in our last article Part 27, as regardsthe resurrection in John 5:28-29. I wish now with the help of the Spirit of God to give you the ThirdRealm understanding of what we were stating, we have touched on this before. I would like to say at theoutset of this discourse - as many of us are aware of - that in the translating of many words & verses, theemphasis has been on the perception of the translator/s at their way of seeing things at that time. Forinstance the word DAMNATION at the end of the 29th verse in the KJV is not only over-stressed, for in thelight of the original context it is out of context. On my computer I have access to 32 translations & onlytwo of them render the word DAMNATION & that is the KJV & Websters, the majority renderJUDGEMENT, Why? Because of a way of thinking, tradition & peer pressure of the time of the translation.Many times when Jesus was teaching He was using metaphors; fields, treasures, storehouses, sheep,goats, mountains, seas, foxes & so it goes on, all to show us pictures or illustrations. Let us now look atthe Greek literal word translation of these two verses. John 5:28-29. GK. Not wonder you this; because comes an hour, in which all those in the tombs,shall hear the voice of him, 29 and shall come forth, those the good things having done, to aresurrection of life; those and the evil things having done, to a resurrection of judgement. Let us seeif we can cast some TABERNACLE light on these wonderful words of Jesus. TOMBS! Jesus could havewell said tombs – The hour has come; the dead will hear the voice of Him who is within & LIVE – as theword tombs is from the word – mnemeion – as well as meaning Tomb it also means a place ofremembrance. Jesus said that you were dead in your trespasses & sins or in your mistaken identities. Eph 2:1. Theword for sins is from the words harmatano or harmatia #264-266 & simply means to miss the mark theword mark is from the word charagma or charakter # 5480-5481, which is where our word Character isfrom & means exactly the same thing – our Character or Identity. So whenever we see the word SINmany times this is what it is meaning – Missing our Character or Mistaking our Identity – remember thatthe Law of Sin & Death has been repealed & been replaced by Grace because of the life, revelation, death& resurrection of Jesus Christ. For further reference please read Part 14, I And My Father Are One.For all have sinned - mistaken their Identity - & COME SHORT of the Glory of God. Now having said that, let us look at the word, Tomb, we were once locked up in our Place ofremembrance which was our Egypt which means – A place of the Tombs – from which we now arearising or resurrecting out from, & un-remembering that which we come out of; Egypt! Now what is allthis saying to us right now? Remember that the Kingdom of God is, where ? WITHIN!! And within is isthe abode of our Spirit & Soul. The Spirit is represented by our True Identity, Christ; & our Soul isrepresented by our Mistaken or False identity...... The word resurrection is from the word Anastasis.This same word rising in Luke 2:34, also comes from the word same word Anastasis & means therecovery of spiritual truth it also means to, drive out of home, disturb, trouble, turn upside down,make an uproar. It is also related to the word – Anastatoo & Egeiro which means raise from sleep,disease, death, obscurity, inactivity, a resurrection from death. Strongs # 386, 387, 1453. Whilst oneis dead in their - mistaken identity – they are coming short of the Glory of God. And causest him tolack a little – or come short - of Godhead, And with honour and majesty compasses him. Psa 8:5.YOUNGS.... So our Gracious God caused us to experience a resurrection of life an Anastasis as it were arecovery of spiritual truth, a rising up, of heretofore hidden Eden-ic re-awakenings of our True Identity& in doing so, it caused an uproar, disturbed, troubled, turned things upside down & drove many of us outof our before welcome places, & even in some cases turned us out of out own homes. Mother againstdaughter, Father against son, does this sound familiar. But my good friends it was a resurrection from 1
    • Christ the Antidote Regarding Deathdeath.A recovery of wonderful spiritual truth. BUT it also brought us to a resurrection ofJUDGEMENT. Now where does Judgement begin ? At the House or Temple of the Lord. 1Pet 4:17. Avery important thing to consider in that this Judgement is a righteous judgement. A judgement untoVictory. Mercy and loving-kindness and truth have met together; righteousness and peace havekissed each other. Psa 85:10. AMP. And where may we ask is the Temple or House or dwelling placeof God ? Within us!! NOW!! Gods Wonderful Judgements, Krisis!The word Judgement comes from a Greek word Krisis the main meaning is - for or against – this is whereour word - Crisis – is from & it means virtually the same thing in other words it represents a – for oragainst – situation. When we are judged by God He brings before us ourselves, what we are in His eyes& He reveals this to us so that we might make a decision about ourselves one way or another – for oragainst – it brings about a Crisis. Now this judgement is not unto condemnation as under the Law, but itis for our benefit that we would through & by it become more Christ-like. As we mentioned earlier arighteous judgement, a judgement unto Victory. So let us read on.And in the same way he sprinkled both the Tabernacle - Our consciousness or Gods abode - and thevessels - Our co creative Faculties of our Consciousness - of ministry – service - with the blood. andwithout the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness - The displacement of our Mistaken Identity withour True Identity - Therefore it was necessary for the copies – the tabernacle of Moses etc - of the thingsin the heavens to be cleansed with these, but the heavenly things themselves – The true Temple madewithout hands, mans inner Holy Place - with a better sacrifice than these. For Christ did not enter aholy Place made with human hands, a mere copy of the real one, but into heaven itself, - once againGods innermost Throne Room in Man - now to appear in the presence of God for us; Nor was it that Heshould offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the holy place year by year with blood not his own.Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once atthe consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. Andin as much as it is appointed to men to die once - Lowered into a separation, which happened throughAdam, even before, Rom 8:20. - and after this comes the judgements, - Crisis - Isa 26.9, 1Pt. 4:17 &1Cor.11.31. So Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, shall appear a secondtime for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him. Looking for Him after theSpirit. Heb. 9: 24 - 28. NAB. Where it mentions once to die most interpret this to mean that all men are going to die & go to thegrave which is not true as we have at least three men that did not, possibly four. You ask who are they? Ido not believe that Enoch experienced the grave, nor Elijah nor Jesus for long, & there is no reliablerecord of Johns death. Some tried to boil him in oil but failed. There are at least five records of his deathin various places, of which none are reliable. Also if I am to believe the writings of Paul, the sons of Godwho are to be manifested are not going to the grave. Rom 8:23. Rev 12:5. That is a 2 nd Realm in partconcept. Now there is a deeper 3rd Realm concept, which if taken in context, to my mind answers thequestion perfectly & that is a - death of separation Rom 11:32, Gal 3:22 – of which Christ is now theAntidote, which are a part of the wonderful Crisis or Judgements......In the last verse of the Amplified weread. Heb 9:28 Even so it is that Christ, having been offered to take upon Himself and bear as a burdenthe sins of many once and once for all, will appear a second time, not to carry any burden of sin nor todeal with sin, but to bring to full salvation those who are [eagerly, constantly, and patiently] waitingfor and expecting Him. Also 1Pet 1:5. The salvation to be revealed in the last day. This is thejudgement unto Victory. The full realisation of what Jesus Christ accomplished in Tasting death forevery man will be revealed to those who are waiting & expecting Him. In other words the in partunderstanding will be completely gone from the minds of those mentioned. What a wonderful righteousjudgement unto Victory. This now brings us to our next major, most important thought. 2
    • Christ the Antidote Regarding Death Within Ourselves!The resurrection is actually in the Kingdom of God WITHIN, it is both the RAISING UP of our TrueIdentity & the JUDGEMENT of our Mistaken Identity. We have been sharing the truth of the Man of ourMistaken Identity being in the Temple, in the place where he ought not to be. In this resurrection it is acoming out of the dead place or in other words the tombs & coming into a lively place of Resurrectionlife. When we speak of the old man dying, two things are happening. 1. It is a ceding or surrendering ofour to date self will which entails both the mind & soul, which is our mistaken self-identity. 2. It is at thesame time a merging of our false or mistaken selves into the True Christ Identity which is at the sametime as dying it is also being recreated & new life being absorbed, a double edged sword if you like. NowI am going to share something quite wonderful with you. If anything has the ring of truth to it I willalways search it out. When I left the organisation connected to the in part realm, I determined that Iwould never again be bound by mans idea or tradition. For a while now I have become very interested inThe Gospel of Thomas. If we recall Jesus paid special attention to Thomas & I believe that he camethrough wonderfully. There are some amazing deep Third Day gems in this unadulterated book. I will notgo into the history of it for it would take to much time, but I will let it speak for itself. It was first writtenin Greek, it was then written in Coptic an Egyptian language influenced by Greek. Thomas inaugurated aChurch in India & is supposedly still in existence today. Please keep in mind that when we read thetranslation of any other language the grammar, the idiom & the way of phrasing is always different to ourEnglish way of thinking & speaking. Plus this was written almost two centuries ago. The point that Iwish to make is that because of our past English Western way of thinking which was influenced by thefallen Church of the dark ages, a lot of the original thinking of the day of Jesus has been lost, but praisethe Lord we have been promised a COMPLETE RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS. And this I believe is oneof the many helps. Now you may disagree & that is your prerogative, but please allow me the sameprivilege that I am granting you. The Two Becoming One. According to The Book of Thomas.Jesus said: ON THE DAY YOU WERE ONE YOU CREATED THE TWO, BUT THEN BEINGTWO WHAT WILL YOU DO? Thomas. 11:10-13. This is no doubt referring to Eve eating from the tree of Good & Evil & then giving it to Adam.Where is this division of the two? Within us of course! When mankind first went into duality, he thoughtthat he was lost. What was the answer? The answer of course is that he needs to become ONE again. Theduality is not just an eating from the tree of - good & evil – but within us are two trees or two identities,- keeping in mind that the original KJV contained a foot note to the effect that the first three chapters ofGenesis were myths or as we would say today metaphors & were not factual - the conflict lies in the factthat the – tree of good & evil – or our mistaken lower identity is at loggerheads with the – tree of life –our true higher Christ identity, WITHIN US. Both are within us in our garden; You are a gardenenclosed. Song of Sol. 4:12, 6:3. Isa 58:11. Jer 31:12. Let us compare this with the following verse. Whoever finds his [lower] life will lose it [the higher life], and whoever loses his [lower] life onMy account will find it [the higher life]. Mat 10:39. AMP. This verse is self explanatory whencomparing it with the above verse.Jesus said: WHEN YOU MAKE THE TWO ONE, AND YOU MAKE THE INNER AS THEOUTER, AND THE OUTER AS THE INNER, AND THE ABOVE AS BELOW, SO THAT YOUWILL MAKE THE MALE & THE FEMALE INTO A SINGLE ONE, IN ORDER THAT THEMALE IS NOT MADE MALE NOR THE FEMALE MADE FEMALE: Thomas. 22:9-16. This I believe is referring to our true Christ self & the Mistaken self, the inner & the outer. The ChristSpirit is - male - & the soul pneuma - female - are to become merged until they are one & the same. The 3
    • Christ the Antidote Regarding Deathanswer here is the same, the advice is exactly the same as above, they are to be merged & make a singleunified entity. Consisting of how many? ONE; The first we hear of Adam is that he was both male &female, ONE ENTITY, in the Image of God. So this means that God must be & is both masculine &feminine as this is borne out by the fact of the name & title of El-Shaddi – the large or twin breasted one– if Adam was both male & female & was in Gods image, God doubtless must be the same & neither isto be pre-eminent they are to be ONE, as at the beginning. Our God has both a FATHER & MOTHERconcept. By the way this is not to be considered from a human sexual point of view, but rather from aspiritual gender which is very, very different in outlook. And [He designed] to reconcile to God both [Jew and Gentile, united] in a single body by meansof His cross, thereby killing the mutual enmity and bringing the feud to an end. And He came andpreached the glad tidings of peace to you who were afar off and [peace] to those who were near. Eph2:16-17. that He from the two might create in Himself one new man [one new quality of humanityout of the two], so making peace. Eph 2:14b.Once the veil is completely lifted in our understanding, the feud or the so called war is over.Jesus said: WHEN HE IS EMPTIED HE WILL BE FILLED WITH LIGHT; BUT WHEN HE ISDIVIDED HE WILL BE FILLED WITH DARKNESS. Thomas. 61:14-18. I feel that this is self explanatory. Emptied of self of course, or of our – mistaken identity - If he isdivided, that is if ones Mistaken Identity is at loggerheads with the Christ Self or identity, darkness willensue. For He is [Himself] our peace (our bond of unity and harmony). He has made us both [Jew andGentile] one [body], and has broken down (destroyed, abolished) the hostile dividing wall between us,15 By abolishing in His [own crucified] flesh the enmity – feud - [caused by] the Law with its decreesand ordinances [which He annulled]; that He from the two might create in Himself one new man[one new quality of humanity out of the two], so making peace. Eph 2:14 AMP The dilemma is theTWO, the answer is the ONE, or NO DIVISION!!Jesus said: IF TWO MAKE PEACE WITH EACH OTHER IN THIS SINGLE HOUSE, THEYWILL SAY TO THE MOUNTAIN MOVE AWAY AND IT SHALL MOVE. Thomas. 48:1-6.Once again this is referring to our duality, making peace in the single house is referring to the House orTemple of God which is ourselves. Incidentally I feel that this above verse is referring to Manifest Son-ship. What two are to make peace? Our - mistaken identity – or self life is to make peace, (be subservientto, & agree with) our – true or Christ identity – then the middle wall of partition, that feud will be doneaway with & peace, then power & authority will ensue. Mountain be removed. Mt 21:21. And He came and preached the glad tidings of peace to you who were afar off and [peace] tothose who were near. Eph 2:17 AMP.Jesus said: WHEN YOU MAKE THE TWO ONE, YOU WILL BECOME SONS OF MAN, ANDIF YOU SAY: MOUNTAIN MOVE AWAY, IT SHALL MOVE. Thomas.106:1-6. Once again we are emphasising that the two Identities are becoming one, & when they do If youabide in Me & my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will & it shall be done unto you. Peace, peace, to him who is far off [both Jew and Gentile] – by breaking down the middle wall (ofpartition) therefore making one - and to him who is near! says the Lord; I create the fruit of his lips,and I will heal him – both spiritually as well as physically - [make his lips blossom anew with speech inthankful praise]. Isa 57:19.AMP.Jesus said: TWO WILL REST THERE ON A COUCH: ONE WILL DIE, THE OTHER WILL 4
    • Christ the Antidote Regarding DeathLIVE. Thomas. 61:1-3. Here we see again the two, one will die or be absorbed into the other. The following verse is from theNew Testament. I am saying to you, in this night there will be TWO on one couch; the one shall be taken alongand the other shall be left." Luke 17:34. CLV. I say to you: In this the night will be two on bed one; one will be taken, and the other will be left.Luke 17:34 GK. Notice that the original does not mention a man or woman or person. The KJV & several othertranslations have also been tampered with but in most of the more recent translations they are nowkeeping to the original description.... TWO WHAT? Identities; our Higher & our Lower self. TWO shallbe in the one person on one couch!! The one shall be taken comparing it with the above verse. Usuallythis has been interpreted to fit into the rapture theory & thought to mean that there were two people in abed, the good one flies up into the air for a period of time, while the other is left to face the music & havea terrible time & those who have been floating away up in the clouds somewhere return when it is allover to rejoice. I want to say to all that this is a terrible error, if ever there was a time when the sons ofGod will be needed in this world it will be in the soon dark times. This is where we will see in action,Where sin abounds grace does abound much, much more. The true interpretation of the abovepassage - & I am not the only one that believes this either - is this. This is actually referring to our twoentities both our – true Christ identity & our mistaken or lower self – in one person. ONE identity will betaken, absorbed, changed, & in this soon time when those who have been walking in the light as He isin the light the culmination of what God has been saying to many of us will take effect & there will be acatching away, & many will be Caught up into a higher experience & it will be the time that themistaken identity will be fully merged into the Christ identity, & in so doing, in this merging the old manDIES & in the dying, will also put on incorruptibility as we have been promised. Now what many findhard to understand is that if the mistaken identity dies how can it live? The answer of course is, that inthe dying to itself it is absorbed into the Christ self & gains a Higher realm of change, a HOLY, GODLY,DIVINE experience. A thought for my precious brothers & sisters who hold to other understandings of scripture, this is notmeant to be conclusive as truth is ever revealing. With respect & without being too simplistic on complexissues, I would submit this biblical point of view as a legitimate Bible based understanding worthy ofopen & impartial consideration. Even though we may have to agree to disagree, this interpretationcannot be discounted as not having scriptural credibility & integrity. So let those [of us] who are spiritually mature and full-grown have this mind and hold theseconvictions; and if in any respect you have a different attitude of mind, God will make that clear toyou also. Phil 3:15. AMP. Dwelling In The Secret Place! As we have mentioned before that there are three Realms & also three levels of interpretation in thescripture, let us consider once again the highest or The Most Holy Place aspect of this text.He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.Psa 91:1 KJV. The first thing that I want to say is that this wonderful experience is available onlythrough & by the grace of God, He is the One that leads us to discover this Secret Place. The secondthing that I wish to share is that there is a choice!! He that dwells! He that lives; he that wishes to livethere, or to dwell, if we dwell on something we keep our mind on it. Someone said but we cannot live inthis place unless God calls us into it, yes, assuredly so, but we do have a choice if we wish to stay there.Many are called but few are chosen. Why is this so? I do have a choice as to where I live, stay-dwellin. He that wishes to dwell in the secret place of The Most High or Holy. We have a conundrum, onone hand we have some in a low realm are saying the devil made me do it or whatever, & on the other 5
    • Christ the Antidote Regarding Deathhand many in a higher realm are saying that God didnt make me do it or made me able to dwell in theSecret Place. Both sides put the blame on someone else to try to make themselves BLAMELESS as far aschoice is concerned. Come on now Saints we do have a CHOICE; But in so saying this, it is only as weavail ourselves of the Grace of God that any of this is possible. The Secret Place is perfect in description, for how many truly know where this secret is. It is hiddento the man of flesh, it is hidden to the man of the Outer Court & it is still hidden to those who are stilldwelling in the Holy Place or the faithful in part Pentecostal believers. But to those who are walking inthe revelation truth of the Third Realm it is no longer hidden or secret. The full reality of it is foundinside the Temple; your Temple & it is actually found in the identity of Christ who is within & is yourTrue Everlasting self. He that DWELLS in this wonderful secret place shall ABIDE under the SHADOW,one translation interprets - shade - of the Almighty! In this Secret Place is our Anastasis experience, our recovery of the spiritual truth of our Christidentity, or we could say the realisation of a resurrection of life all of these wonderful truths are tiedtogether as what we are sharing is really a spiritual experience of which words really cannot describe ordo justice. When Paul come down from his catching up to the the Third Heaven experience. What did hesay that he was snatched away into paradise and hears ineffable declarations, which it is not alloweda man to speak. Co 12:4 CLV. What we are sharing are only types & shadows to help us understand.To those who wish to move on in God, nothing can replace your one on one close friendship with yourLord, Saviour & Creator. Every man needs that wonderful revelation of spirit which is without words. I also truly believe that the truth of our being one, the two being merged, one into the other is alsobeing realised in this Secret Place of the Most High experience within ourselves. With it there alsocomes the true understanding that within ourselves that the Veil is being lifted, or the two becoming ONE. The Life Is In The Blood! Without the shedding of Blood there is NO Forgiveness!Jesus said: I tell you for certain that only thieves and robbers climb over the fence instead of going inthrough the gate to the sheep pen. Jn 10:1 CEV I ASSURE you, most solemnly I tell you, he who does not enter by the door into the sheepfold, butclimbs up some other way (elsewhere, from some other quarter) is a thief and a robber. Jn 10:1 AMP. At times there can be a seemingly very fine line between truth & error but when examined closely inthe spirit they are worlds apart: The uncovering of the Lord Jesus Christ will not come into our livesexcept the Man of sin is revealed in the Temple. The man of sin is within every mans carnal nature &unless it is revealed you will never recognise it. It is only to the extent that we see the authentic Christcan we recognise the counterfeit or the anti-christ. Is not the man of sin our sin consciousness, our -mistaken identity – or false self image? The Adam nature in man is trying to build the house of the Lordhimself. The Adam nature can never produce the Christ nature any more than the Adam nature can saveitself. Having a form of godliness but denying the power that is there. The power of His life & thelife is in the blood. But let every man be careful how he builds on it. For any other foundation canno one lay than the one being laid, who is Jesus Christ. And if anyone builds on this foundation gold,silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble, each ones work shall be revealed. For the Day shalldeclare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try each ones work as to what kind itis. I Cor 3: 10b-13. MKJV. even from Jesus Christ the faithful Witness, the First-born from thedead and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in Hisown blood, Rev 1:5. MKJV. Sitting Where He Ought Not!2Thes 2:4 CEV. He will brag and oppose everything that is holy or sacred. He will even sit in Godstemple and claim to be God. 6
    • Christ the Antidote Regarding Death When we read Scripture & have a greater confidence in our own understanding of Scripture than inthe Scripture itself, we know that the man of our – mistaken identity – is sitting on the throne. This typeof presumption needs to be revealed in us, where we are own lords rather than Jesus Christ. This needs tobe revealed by The Spirit. It is no use me seeing it in you, you need to see it for yourself. We also need tohave revealed to us in that we are deriving our consciences from the eating of the tree of good & evilwhich is the source of death in all of mankind. It is also a trap of our carnal mind to have a greaterconfidence in our own understanding of God than in God Himself. Our faith in God must must out weighour concept of Him. Many sincere searchers who go no further than trying to access Christ solely withinthemselves, are lost in an elite form of separation & self-ism. If we walk in the light as He is in thelight we have fellowship with one another & the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin. 1Jn1:7. MKJV. Claiming to be a god!Eze 28:2. CEV. Ezekiel, son of man, tell the king of Tyre that I am saying: You are so arrogant thatyou think youre a god and that the city of Tyre is your throne. You may claim to be a god, thoughyoure nothing but a mere human. Another thin line of danger is intellectualism, this also can be mistaken for spirituality, because we arefast intellectually & more learned & have all the answers at out finger tips does not necessarily denotespirituality. I am reminded of the words of Paul not many mighty, not many noble but he has chosen theweak, despised & foolish. The King of Tyre really had tickets on himself, but His Creator quickly pulledhim down to size. You may claim to be a god but you are very, very human We need to be remindedthat in scripture that there are two type of gods & once again there is a seemingly very fine line betweenthe two. One is wonderful & the other is far, far from wonderful. We are to humble ourselves under the Mighty hand of God & if we do He will exalt us in due time. Inthese articles it is not so much in the winning of any point or argument, but are we helping each other todraw closer to God & His purpose. There is seemingly a very good reason for doing away with theefficacy of the Blood that the Lord Jesus Christ gave for His Church & if I believed it I would need to doaway with a very great part of the New Testament. I have looked at this very closely & even though itmay seem to have some clout, this is the decision that I have arrived at. For I did not keep back from declaring to you all the counsel of God. 28 Then take heed toyourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit placed you as overseers, to shepherd theassembly of God which He purchased through His own blood. 29 For I know this, that after mydeparture grievous wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; 30 and out of youyourselves will rise up men speaking perverted things, in order to draw away the disciples afterthemselves. Or their own particular way of thinking. Acts 20:27-30. LITV. As with any error those who are under a deception are totally convinced that they are right & ofcourse their very convincing ways does not in any way alter the subtleness, or insidiousness – that whichis more dangerous than seems evident – of that which they have embraced. In essence what some areinferring is that we might as well throw away the Bible because it is a load of untruths. If we allowsomeone to get their foot in our door on one important deviation of truth, where will it all end if we allowthem come right inside. Anything that is as up to date been called heresy will always have a truthsomewhere, but the error is in taking that truth OUT OF CONTEXT. And through Him having made peace through the blood of His cross, it pleased the Father toreconcile all things to Himself through Him, whether the things on earth or the things in Heaven.Col 1:20 MKJV. Therefore, brothers, having boldness to enter into the Holy of Holies by the blood of Jesus, Heb10:19. The Third Realm of which so many are claiming to have embraced, from the Bible, are nowignoring & denying the only way that this book gives us to enter into this Realm in the way that wasoriginally intended. 7
    • Christ the Antidote Regarding Death But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and theblood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 1Jn 1:7. Remember how God gave Mosesspecific instructions of how to build the Tabernacle & how to enter it. With this new way of thinking, itis really saying that God did not give Moses instructions, as the blood sacrifice came from other cultures.It completely undermines the word & takes away any confidence in it. And so to make it fit, it nowdenigrates & infiltrates into the New Testament. So if we do this where does that leave the truth asregarding our Lord Jesus & His sacrifice. No my beloved friends we must take a stand against thisinfiltration of terrible error. Furthermore we read, who serve the example and shadow of heavenlythings, as Moses was warned of God when he was about to make the tabernacle. For, He says "Seethat you make all things according to the pattern shown to you in the mountain." Heb 8:5. We aretold that what Moses was given was a SHADOW or type of the heavenly things. Where? in us. Now myquestion is. Do we believe that Moses was warned of God? If we say that the blood sacrifices were notordained of God, we are saying that what we are reading right now is a lie, & that Moses was not warnedof God & if that is a fact then most everything that we read in the New Testament is not to be trusted.Absolute rubbish!! I say this with a care to all those who have been smeared with this teaching & also toprotect those who may in the future rub up against it. He was oppressed, [yet when] He was afflicted, He was submissive and opened not His mouth; likea lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He opened not Hismouth. Isa 53:7 AMP. A lamb denoting a blood sacrifice. Isaiah believed it. The next day John saw Jesus coming to him and said, Look! There is the Lamb of God, Who takesaway the sin of the world! John 1:29 AMP. [Exod. 12:3;] Also John the Baptist is of the sameopinion, a lamb which denotes a blood sacrifice. And He [that same Jesus Himself] is the propitiation (the atoning sacrifice) for our sins, and notfor ours alone but also for [the sins of] the whole world. 1Jn 2:2 AMP. John the writer of 5 booksincluding the book of Revelation, was of the same opinion. You must know (recognise) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way ofliving inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver andgold, 19 But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a[sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot. 20 It is true that He was chosen and foreordained (destinedand foreknown for it) before the foundation of the world, but He was brought out to public view (mademanifest) in these last days (at the end of the times) for the sake of you. 1Pe 1:18-20. AMP. I noticethat Peter was of the exact same opinion as his contemporaries. And from Jesus Christ the faithful and trustworthy Witness, the First-born of the dead [first to bebrought back to life] and the Prince (Ruler) of the kings of the earth. To Him Who ever loves us andhas once [for all] loosed and freed us from our sins by His own blood, Rev 1:5. AMP. And [now] they sing a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the scroll and to break the sealsthat are on it, for You were slain (sacrificed), and with Your blood You purchased men unto God fromevery tribe and language and people and nation. Rev 5:9 AMP. John is so convinced of this truth thathe brings it right over into the book of Revelation. Also there is Chap 7:14. Abrahams Lamb!If we think that our conscience can be appeased by the excuse of Moses supposedly copying othernations. Let us go a little further back & consider the story of Abraham offering Isaac. Gen 22:6-16.AMP. 8
    • Christ the Antidote Regarding Death Then Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and laid it on [the shoulders of] Isaac hisson, and he took the fire (the fire-pot) in his own hand, - from his own altar in 13:4 - and a knife; andthe two of them went on together. 7 And Isaac said to Abraham, My father! And he said, Here I am,my son. [Isaac] said, See, here are the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt sacrifice?8 Abraham said, My son, God Himself will provide a lamb for the burnt offering. So the two went ontogether. 9 When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built an altar there;then he laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar on the wood. [Matt.10:37.] 10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand and took hold of the knife to slay his son. [Heb.11:17-19.] 11 But the Angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, Abraham, Abraham! Heanswered, Here I am. 12 And He said, Do not lay your hand on the lad or do anything to him; fornow I know that you fear and revere God, since you have not held back from Me or begrudged givingMe your son, your only son. 13 Then Abraham looked up and glanced around, and behold, behindhim was a ram caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it upfor a burnt offering and an ascending sacrifice instead of his son! 14 So Abraham called the name ofthat place The Lord Will Provide. And it is said to this day, On the mount of the Lord it will beprovided. 15 The Angel of the Lord called to Abraham from heaven a second time 16 And said, I havesworn by Myself, says the Lord, that since you have done this and have not withheld [from Me] orbegrudged [giving Me] your son, your only son, Or being willing to offer him as a burnt offering. Thiswhole circumstance was instituted by God Himself. If we think otherwise then we are really off course, inChapter 13:4 we see that Abraham had an altar from way back. At that Altar he called on the name of theLord. If we are still not convinced, then let us go right back to the 4th chapter of Genesis. Without The Shedding Of Blood There Is No Remission! Heb.9:22. If we do not believe this then we are a follower of Cain!We wonder why there are differences of opinion over this subject; Why? The first murder was over thisvery thing. Why? Because God accepted Abels offering & the fat. Cain was thinking through earthlyeyes he was of the flesh a very carnal thinker, his whole demeanour was of the earth earthy.Gen 4:3-7 AMP. And in the course of time Cain brought to the Lord an offering of the fruit of theground. 4 And Abel brought of the firstborn of his flock and of the fat portions. And the Lord hadrespect and regard for Abel and for his offering, Heb. 11:4. 5 But for Cain and his offering He hadno respect or regard. - Why? No blood sacrifice - So Cain was exceedingly angry and indignant, - is notthis happening among many today - and he looked sad and depressed. 6 And the Lord said to Cain,Why are you angry? And why do you look sad and depressed and dejected? 7 If you do well, will younot be accepted? - In other words, hearing that which is within you, your higher self , if only you realisedit Cain your attitude & outlook will be a testimony against truth, & will help many in the future - And ifyou do not do well, sin crouches at your door; its desire is for you, but you must master it. The bloodof Jesus Christ was shed for the remission & forgiveness of sins & this was the first type, AND IT WASNOT LIKED OR ACCEPTED then, even as NOW..... Mr & Mrs Cain come out of the earthly way ofthinking & receive Gods way & not the natural & humane way of worldly thinking. Gods Approval & Vindication On The Shedding of Blood!Lev 9:18-24 AMP. He also killed the bull and the ram, the sacrifice of peace offerings, for the people;and Aarons sons presented to him the blood, which he dashed upon the altar round about, 19 And thefat of the bull and of the ram, the fat tail and that which covers the entrails, and the kidneys, and thelobe of the liver. 20 And they put the fat upon the breasts, and Aaron burned the fat upon the altar; 21But the breasts and the right thigh Aaron waved for a wave offering before the Lord, as Mosescommanded. 22 Then Aaron lifted his hands toward the people and blessed them, and came down[from the altar] after offering the sin offering, the burnt offering, and the peace offerings. 23 Mosesand Aaron went into the Tent of Meeting, and when they came out they blessed the people, and the 9
    • Christ the Antidote Regarding Deathglory of the Lord [the Shekinah cloud] appeared to all the people [as promised]. [Lev. 9:6.] 24 Thenthere came a fire out from before the Lord and consumed the burnt offering and the fat on the altar;and when all the people saw it, they shouted and fell on their faces. Please do not try & tell me thatGod did not approve of the blood sacrifices. A Seeming Contradiction! Reveals A Godly Principle.Psa 40:6 AMP. Sacrifice and offering You do not desire, nor have You delight in them; You havegiven me the capacity to hear and obey [Your law, a more valuable service than] burnt offerings andsin offerings [which] You do not require. Psa 40:6. CLV. Sacrifice and approach present You do not desire, Yet a body have You preparedfor me. The ascent approach and sin offering You do not ask for." Yet in seeming contradiction, in thefollowing we read. Isa 53:5-12. CLV. Yet He was wounded because of our transgressions, and crushed because of ourdepravities. The discipline for our welfare was on Him, and by His welts there is healing for us. 6 Allof us, as a flock-ling, have strayed; each man to his own way, we face, yet Yahweh, in Him, intercedesbecause of all our depravity." 7 Hard pressed is He and being humbled, yet He is not opening Hismouth. As a flock-ling to slaughter is He fetched, and as a ewe before her shearers is mute, so He isnot opening His mouth." 8 From restraint and from judgement is He taken, and on His generation,who shall meditate? For He was severed from the land of the living; because of the transgression ofMy people was He touched by death. 9 And He is given His tomb with the wicked, a cave from therich, in His death. For He does no wrong, and no deceit is in His mouth, 10 yet Yahweh desires tocrush Him, and He causes Him to be wounded. Should you place His soul for a guilt approach, Heshall see a seed. He shall lengthen His days, and the desire of Yahweh shall prosper in His hand. 11From the toil of His soul shall He see light. And He shall be satisfied by His knowledge. My righteousServant shall justify many, and with their depravities shall He be burdened." 12 Therefore I willapportion to Him among many, and to the staunch will He apportion the loot, insomuch that He givesup His soul unto death, and with transgressors was counted; and He bore the sin of many, and fortransgressors is making intercession." No true loving father likes to make it hard on his son, but of course discipline is a necessary thing,we have to be taught to learn. In my opinion this is one of the main reasons that we have so muchdisrespect among the present generation. First Dr Spock & now the welfare people who condemn anyhands on discipline whatsoever. In the nature of God is both life & death, we have not yet fullyunderstood that death is a necessary evil for out of death comes life. Except a grain of wheat is planted& dies it abides alone. God, - from who the true loving father inherits his nature - realises that thesacrifices that He instigated himself are a thing that is needful & this is why read Sacrifice andapproach present You do not desire, Yet a body have You prepared for me. Let us read thiscontradictory verse very closely, even though God did not desire sacrifice YET – a seemingcontradiction – a body You have prepared for me. The ascent approach and sin offering You do not askfor." The corresponding next verse which is found in Heb explains the whole question perfectly. The Contradiction Clarified!Heb 10:5-10. AMP. Hence, when He [Christ] entered into the world, He said, Sacrifices and offeringsYou have not desired, but instead You have made ready a body for Me [to offer]; 6 In burntofferings and sin offerings You have taken no delight. 7 Then I said, Behold, here I am, comingto do Your will, O God--[to fulfill] what is written of Me in the volume of the Book. [Ps. 40:6-8.] 8When He said just before, You have neither desired, nor have You taken delight in sacrifices andofferings and burnt offerings and sin offerings--all of which are offered according to the Law-- 9 Hethen went on to say, Behold, [here] I am, coming to do Your will. Thus He does away with and 10
    • Christ the Antidote Regarding Deathannuls the first (former) order [as a means of expiating sin] so that He might inaugurate and establishthe second (latter) order. [Ps. 40:6-8.] 10 And in accordance with this will [of God], we have beenmade holy (consecrated and sanctified) through the offering made once for all of the body ofJesus Christ (the Anointed One). Please read the above verses very carefully & you will see clearly thefull answer to the question & the reason why there has been such a difference of thought among someregarding this particular subject. A Needful Displeasure & Necessity!With any correction even though it is necessary & needful, we must not allow the negative to overshadowthe positive. We must realise that in Christ that it is HIS LIFE that overcomes & swallows up the deathrealm in us. I have seen in the Spirit that when we realise the full implication of 2Th 2:3. AMP. Let noone deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first[unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come], andthe man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition), that this is happeningto some that have been in high places. The son of perdition in the time of Jesus was Judas his treasurer,he had a trusted place & yet he bought the field with with the wages of injustice, Acts 1:18 CLV. notthe 30 pieces of silver as he threw those back into the Holy Place Mt 27:5. These wages of injustice werewhat he stole whilst he was the treasurer, take time to read his history regarding finances. The sad thingwas his betrayal of Christ. To deny the blood by which we were purchased is worse, it is not only a sadthing, but a terrible thing. Acts 20:28. Therefore take heed to yourselves, and to all the flock in whichthe Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to feed the church of God which He has purchased with Hisown blood.Psa 41:9 Even my own familiar friend, in whom I trusted (relied on and was confident), who ate of mybread, has lifted up his heel against me. John 13:18. We need to realise that this could allude to all ofus. An Indictment Against The True Church!All of us who have walked with the Lord very closely have had the potential to deny the need for a bloodsacrifice; His blood sacrifice which was for the forgiveness, remission of sins. We could easily have beenwaylaid by error, we, each of us could easily have allowed own human self or our lower self – the man ofour mistaken identity - to take the place of Christ in our lives in this area & have betrayed him & becomesons of perdition. We who have walked in a high privileged place in God who - as Judas did & was oneof the twelve - could have the bias to be a Judas, it is only by the spirit of almighty God that we have beenkept from this error, or if we have gone astray that can uncover & recover our spiritual vision. Onceagain we each have the potential to fulfil these scriptures. 2Pe 2:1.But there were also false prophetsamong the people, even as there will be false teachers among you who secretly will bring in destructiveheresies, even denying the Master who bought them. 2Th 2:10b -11. because they did not welcomethe Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved. 11 Therefore God sends upon them amisleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false.( They are seared consciences. Another tells us that their consciences are cauterised.) 1 Tim 4:2. In Jn3:19 we are told of those loving darkness rather than light. The Rectification!I now address those of you who are & have been caught up in this heresy, which is another Gospel. Godwill never forsake you, but we can do - despite to the spirit of grace - whilst we are holding to that error,in fact we are denying the very reality of the true Christ who bought us with a price. Denounce thisheresy, turn from it & put it behind you. Speak to your God who is both within yourself & inhabitsinfinity, Love Him with all that is within you & all will be well.John 5:46-47. AMP. For if you believed and relied on Moses, you would believe and rely on Me, for 11
    • Christ the Antidote Regarding Deathhe wrote about Me [personally]. 47 But if you do not believe and trust his writings, how then will youbelieve and trust My teachings? [How shall you cleave to and rely on My words?] Both The Jewish & Greek Attitudes!1Co 1:22-25. AMP. For while Jews [demandingly] ask for signs and miracles and Greeks pursuephilosophy and wisdom, 23 We preach Christ (the Messiah) crucified, [preaching which] to the Jewsis a scandal and an offensive stumbling block [that springs a snare or trap], and to the Gentiles it isabsurd and utterly un-philosophical nonsense. 24 But to those who are called, whether Jew or Greek(Gentile), Christ [is] the Power of God and the Wisdom of God. 25 [This is] because the foolish thing[that has its source in] God is wiser than men, and the weak thing [that springs] from God is strongerthan men. The Greeks who were very philosophic in their out look & felt that one would improve oneself onlythrough the purifying of the mind, HUMAN WISDOM was their key source of spiritual reasoning & so ofcourse the CROSS to them was far, far from what they desired or thought was needful for spiritualprogression & so they missed it. Unfortunately many Christians have this slant of thinking in their notyet full spiritual understanding, but let us who are so inclined, not let this bias in our thinking effect us inthe believing in the need of the efficacy of the precious blood that is needed for the REMISSION of oursins. The Jews, who ought to have been thrilled in the prophesied coming Sacrificial Saviour, had distortedcertain texts that were not for their time, were looking for a King to come & sit on a literal throne, thatwould do away & annihilate all their enemies & were absolutely disgusted with one who was called theKing, would ride into town on an Ass & would allow Himself to be abased & crucified naked. To them itwas a SLANDER, they not realising that the abasing, the humiliation, the shedding of blood was all a partof this Kingdom of love, humility & the abasement of self – or fleshly carnal thinking, our mistakenidentity - was indeed the essence of the actual Kingdom of God which is within you. They were blindedby the understanding & reasonings of the flesh which entailed their corrupting the true interpretation ofScripture. And so it is with many today, through the reasonings of the flesh, MAN has not learned by hispassed mistakes & the Adam in us never will for he has to die in all of us, He must be swallowed up invictory & that can only come by & through the true & full & complete WAY of the CROSS. All of this is helping to lead us to A Full Resurrection Of Life, And Of Judgement!
