Part 32. the house of god.

  1. 1. Christ the Antidote Regarding Death CHRIST THE ANTIDOTE REGARDING DEATH Part 32. The House Of God!For years many, many people every Sunday, Saturday or whenever, have faithfully attended Churchservices in what is termed by many the house of God & have never remotely known what the house –Temple – of God is. Some have thought that they knew, but only to a degree, just enough to appease theconscience as it were. The adversary has carefully kept this secret very well guarded for when peoplesminds are suddenly opened to this truth - as it has to some already - there will be such a change in manylives that it will be stupendous. For the Lord has His eye upon mankind as upon all the tribes ofIsrael. Zech 9:1b. Can we believe that God would make this declaration even in the O.T. That His eyewas upon ALL MANKIND as His hand was upon Israel even then. Why? For all souls are mine, saysGod For the earth is the Lords & all they who dwell therein. For the Lord whom you seek willsuddenly come to His Temple. His corporate temple. And it will happen to every man in his ownorder. Or time! Thank God!! For God knows who are His, - every man - & every man that has been, isnow, & shall be born are his creation & all have within themselves the Most Holy Place in their ownabiding place within which is the Temple of God. For it is God which works within you both to do ofHis own good pleasure. What house will you build for me, or what is the place of my rest? Says the Lord. Yet, the MostHigh dwells not in temples made with hands, as says the prophet. Acts 7:48–49. David asked the question. One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and[insistently] require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life,to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness] of the Lordand to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple. Psa 27:4. Now even though David erected a tentwhich housed the Ark of the Tabernacle & was a dwelling place for God it was a type or metaphor of thetrue tabernacle which was & is MAN, a Tabernacle which God pitched & not that which man built. In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: he heard my voice out of his temple,and my cry came before him, even into his ears. Psa 18:6. Where did the voice of David come from?Out of His temple, out of his innermost being. Every human being was created in the image of God, butalas, What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of [earth-born] man that You care forhim? Yet You have made him - man, all men - but a little lower than God [or heavenly beings], and Youhave crowned him with glory and honour. Psa 8:4-5. The Youngs version puts it this way. Andcaused him to lack a little of Godhead. Is that not beautiful? This is referring to every man, it mattersnot who you are that are reading this at the moment, I do not care what your status is - neither does God -He does not take into consideration how low you have dropped into the drug, alcohol, or any other vice orscene, you are Gods creation & within you if you can receive it IS THE DWELLING PLACE OF GOD & itis your prerogative, privilege & eternal right to take advantage of that which is within you & experience afellowship with the ETERNAL ONE who is part of your very own self, For in him we live, and move,and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, for we are also his offspring. Acts17:28. This is your TRUE IDENTITY. For you are the HOUSE THE TEMPLE OF GOD. As one has saidthere are SONS OF GOD right now sitting on bar stools who do not yet know that they are of the election.I am hoping that this is not upsetting any of our doctrinal or legalistic opinions. We are NOW TODAYexperiencing the Third Realm or Most Holy Place experience. Please allow me to cite a phrase from Mary Wood. Quote:- The reason that others cannot see a ThirdDay is because of the fact that our consciousness has been rapture-d or caught up. -: Unquote. 1
  2. 2. Christ the Antidote Regarding Death Now this has been our experience all along in progressing from one degree of glory into another &once we begin to understand the Third or Most Holy Place Realm, we realise that, as in any furtherrevelation it is most easily misunderstood by those whose conscious awareness are not yet at that level. Iam not meaning this in a proud way, but if we give it some thought this has always been so. Coming To Be Glorified IN His Saints!In other words Christ is now making a personal second appearance in me/us,when he comes to beglorified in his saints and marvelled at in all believers on that day which has already began. 2Thes1:10a. Moffatt. Please take note IN HIS SAINTS. God is changing our separated or loweredconsciousness into a Christ consciousness. The reason that we came into a conscious awareness originallyis that God wished to reproduce Himself. Firstly God who is love wanted to reproduce himself in Life,Love & Godliness. Jesus was saying to the Jews, to US & to the WHOLE WORLD, that I am the pattern Son, what I am youreally are also, & as you use FAITH, you will realise that you can & will be the same also. Taking theJn10:30-36 text into consideration I and my Father are one.......for what good work do you stoneme?......because you being a man make yourself God!..... Jesus said, Is it not written in your law, I said,You are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot bebroken; Say ye of him, whom the Father has sanctified, and sent into the world, You blaspheme;because I said, I am the Son of God ? & coupling it with But whenever a person turns - in fullrepentance - to the Lord, the veil is stripped off and taken away. 2Co 3:16, AMP. Also , Yet if ever itshould reach a turning back - fully - to the Lord, the covering - or veil - is taken from about it." 2Cor3:16. CLV. I believe that Jesus was not only referring to the time that the sons of God would experiencethe change - of incorruptibility - but even before the change that we would be where I am there you maybe also Jn 14:3. This verse is not referring to - going to heaven - the way many have been led to believe- & is a very instilled belief among most Christians - but after Christ returned & issued the outpouring ofthe Holy Spirit, even to us today it is referring to the here & now. If this is not so then I would humbly askan explanation of this phrase found in both Rev 2:26 & 3:21. And he who overcomes is victorious. Thefirst verse is alluding to ruling with Christ the second verse is referring to sitting on the same throne asCHRIST & the FATHER. Actually they are both saying the same thing. These are alluding to the 144,000, -an unidentifiable number - the Man-child, the manifestation of the sons of God, those who follow theLamb wherever He goes ---- redeemed from among men as the first-fruits for God & the Lamb. Rev14:4. Now the question I wish to ask is this; If we do not overcome in the here & now & realise that whenwe read - for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body ofChrist. And this until we all come into the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to afull-grown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; Eph 4:12-13. MKJV, - is this forthe here & now? If we think that it is going to take place after a rapture into the sky of what profit, & howcould it be an overcoming on our part if God does it with a zip bang & your there on the throne withoutever overcoming in the here & now? He has raised us up to sit together & given us joint seating withHim in heavenly places NOW. Let us now hear what Paul has to say to us in the book of Ephesians. May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mightypower in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in yourhearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, 18 That you may have the powerand be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [Gods devoted people, the experience of thatlove] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; 19 [That you may really come] to know[practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge[without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may 2
  3. 3. Christ the Antidote Regarding Deathhave the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with GodHimself]! Eph 3:19-19 Amp. Now the God of peace himself sanctify you wholly: and your wholespirit, and soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Th 5:23.Darby. As there are degrees in our consecration, as we progress from one degree of glory to another, so the lidis being lifted on end time revelation. Our level of repentance keeps stride with what is being revealed &as we repent or turn from what is outdated, this in turn causes us to deepen our consecration, then as we -more fully - turn to the Lord the VEIL is lifted to suit. For whoever has [spiritual knowledge], to himwill more be given and he will be furnished richly so that he will have abundance; but from him whohas not, even what he has will be taken away. Mat 13:12. AMP. Now this further spiritualunderstanding will only increase when & after we come to know the TRUE location of THE HOUSE OFGOD..... To add, a great part of this further understanding or LIGHT is found in the truth of, Our Full Adoption As Sons!With this particular theme there seem to be differing ideas but I believe that we are mostly saying the samething but expressing it in different ways, according to the situation that we are in at the time. I very muchlike the way that both George Hawtin & David Weber another Kingdom writer explain it. To elaboratefurther on what we have been saying, I now share something that David Weber has written on the threestages of adoption in the original Hebrew family & the comparison with what Gods sons are now, & are toexperience. Quote :- "For the anxious longing of the creature waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.For the creation was subject to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope thatthe creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of thechildren of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth untilnow. And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselvesgroan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons..." (Romans 8:19-23) Beloved, even a brief glimpse into this passage of scripture from Romans should reveal to us that the"adoption of sons" or the unveiling of the Son in fullness in a company of sons is something which yetlies ahead for the body of Christ. We, who have received a measure of the Spirit nowwait ...GROANINGLY WAIT! for our adoption as sons. We were foreordained unto adoption as sons, butthe actual adoption is something for which we are now waiting. Thus, this "adoption" is not simply thematter of our coming into the family of God through regeneration of our spirit, but rather, it is somethingwhich is the end result of Gods fiery dealings with us unto the full and complete surrender of our souls! I would like to take a quick look at the life of Jesus as it is revealed to us in the Gospels because in Hislife we can see a pattern which reveals the three stages of spiritual growth in a believer ... from infancy(teknion) ... to puberty (teknon) ... to maturity (huios). This is revealed in Jesus manger birth andcircumcision on the eighth day, to His appearing in the temple at age 12, to His adoption ceremony andHis Fathers proclamation of His Son-ship at the Jordan at age 30 ("30" is the biblical number for"maturity"). The pattern shown to us in the life of Jesus, is also revealed to us in the life of the average Israelitemale (which I mentioned earlier). Jesus then spiritually amplifies for us that pattern with His life. In the life of the average Hebrew boy there were three major events which drew broad public attentionto him. The first of these events was his "Circumcision," which occurred when he was an infant, at eightdays old. This was the moment that he was marked as a "covenant man" in Israel, and was celebratedthroughout the community. 3
  4. 4. Christ the Antidote Regarding Death The second major event was his "Bar-Mitzvah," which took place as he was about to enter into puberty.The word Bar-Mitzvah actually means "a son accountable," and this signified the time, not only when hewas held accountable for keeping the Commandments of God, but also when he was to become anapprentice under his father in the family business. This, too, was celebrated as a very special event in thelife of the child, just as it is today. The third event was what was known as the "Huiothesia," or the (young mans) "adoption ceremony."The word "Huiothesia" means "Son Placement," and indicates the time when a male child reached whatwas considered to be the age of maturity (somewhere around 30). At this time, the father of the youngman would place his hand on the head of his son and openly proclaim, "This is my beloved son in whomI am well pleased! I bestow upon him now all of my riches and power and authority (through power ofattorney) so that he might act on my behalf in all of my affairs." Beloved friends, can you see that the three experiences that are described in the life of an Israelite male,and the three stages shown to us in the life of Jesus, are to be spiritually discerned so that we mayunderstand Gods enduring process for our own spiritual growth into sons? Can you now understand whyJesus would say to Mary and Joseph at age 12, "Know ye not that I must be about My Fathers business?"Can you see that He was proclaiming His just then entered apprenticeship under the Father? At that pointJesus was just entering an 18 year stage of "learning the family business" so to speak. His Son-shipceremony at the Jordan which would "fulfil all righteousness" and launch His glorious Son-ship ministrywould not be performed until He reached the full stage of "maturity." The Holy Spirits descent like a doveupon Jesus was in essence the hand of the Father coming upon the Son to proclaim His Son-ship ministry!The Father said, "This is My Beloved Son in Whom I AM well pleased!" Many of us have notunderstood the full ramifications of those words, or that ceremony, until now. But there is now a greatlight of revelation being shed upon such things in this day. Why? Because the time for our adoption as "sons" is drawing nigh beloved. Our Father is preparing to bestowthe riches and the power and the glory of His Kingdom upon a people, and that without measure! But Hewont give that power to spiritual infants! No, He wont. Nor will He give it to spiritual children... But theFather is waiting (as is all of creation) to bring forth sons. This is the precious fruit of the earth for whichthe Husband-man has been patiently waiting. May the Lord give us the grace to endure the trials and the chastening that we must suffer unto son-ship, and that, so that He may have that company of sons upon whom He can place the great authority andpower that is needed to rule and reign with Him in the Kingdom of God.... even we ourselves groanwithin ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons..." -: Unquote. This is all a part of the fulfilling of the next two verses & are very much part of each other. The Crisis Of The Realisation Of The Bottomless Pit!Now the judgement (crisis) of this world is coming on [sentence is now being passed on this world].Now the ruler (evil genius, prince) of this world shall be cast out (expelled). And I, if and when I amlifted up from the earth, will draw and attract all men [Gentiles as well as Jews] to Myself. Jn 12:31-32. AMP. The judgement is in the understanding that this so called ruler or adversary is none other thanour mistaken identity which if we allow it will lead us in the way of the world, things that are on theoutside, things of the flesh, things of what we can see, touch & hear, For where your treasure is therewill be your heart also. Money, cars, etc. As I read recently. The true mark of a son is when he asksmost often for spiritual blessings instead of temporal blessings. One will know that he is no longernumbered among those who mind earthly things, when in all his seeking, he seeks only those things whichare above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. 4
  5. 5. Christ the Antidote Regarding Death The thought that we shared in our last issue regarding the adversary being cast into the bottomless pit,bottomless meaning that which has no foundation, will be a great help to all of us in overcoming, whenwe realise that actually the ruler of this world - our mistaken identity – is being cast out (expelled).This is the same thought that is given to us when we read And then shall that Wicked be revealed,whom the Lord will consume with the spirit of his mouth, and will destroy with the brightness of hiscoming: 2Th 2:8. The brightness of His coming meaning That He is coming to be glorified IN HisSaints If we can receive it the only world that this ruler, evil genius, prince, wicked one, or Antichrist, isbeing cast out of, or being consumed from with the spirit of His mouth is the WORLD that is within us.Jesus said that after He was lifted up from the earth - the resurrection – He would draw – drag as amagnet - & attract all men to Himself. Now myself I see this to mean also that when He - our trueChrist identity – is lifted up – caught up, rapture-d, ascended, WITHIN US & takes us away from ourearthly mundane way of thinking, & our whole desire is set only on rising up & away from our carnalityetc. Into the high place of believing who we really are now, SONS; & the realising & expecting of OURFULL ADOPTION, to wit the redemption of our bodies. TAKE NO THOUGHT for your life, what you shall eat, or drink, what you shall put on. Is not the lifemore than meat & clothes. or your needs, top-line motor cars, etc, TAKE NO THOUGHT for tomorrow,for after these things do the GENTILES - unbelievers - seek. BUT SEEK FIRST the KINGDOM OF GOD& His righteousness & ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED TO YOU . No man can serve twomasters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despisethe other. Ye cannot serve God and Mammon, or worldly things. For your Heavenly Father knowswhat you have need of. These sayings are found in Matt 6. Quote :- Vicious is the enemy, but I shall smite him & destroy his plans to hinder My people from movingforward into their calling & destiny. I will completely destroy the works of the enemy in the midst. I willdethrone him & establish My throne. Because you are willing, I shall come to you & assist you. I shallhear your cries of intercession & bring liberty. This is the day promised to you. This is the covenant I havemade with you. This is the promise fulfilled that you & your household shall be saved. -: Unquote. ByShirley Lise. Of course the Throne of God is in HIS TEMPLE & ye are the temple – house - of God. Gods Wonderful Sabbath Day!A very wonderful part of this end-time message is that in the truth of the millennial kingdom, it is theSabbath day of all Sabbath days. It is the Day of God. All the rest were only metaphors or types orshadows of the REALITY. When Jesus went into synagogue on the Sabbath day & confronted a man withan unclean spirit & cast it out, He was demonstrating by type or a parable that in the wonderful kingdomSabbath, that the bondages of the adversary or the prince of the power of the air - aer - that now dwells orrules in the hearts of unbelievers, will be conquered cast out & taken away. Jesus also healed the manwho was born blind - on the Sabbath - showing that there will be not be any blind, literally or spiritually.In ages past the adversary has blinded the minds of them that believe not but in the day approaching,Gods wonderful Sabbath day there will be no veils to mar or to cover mans understanding, for Godshall lead by a way that was not heretofore known & with a clear & open understanding – the vision ofGod – will be opened up so clearly that all will behold the glory of God. So our great Jesus demonstrated to us this wonderful parable of healing the lame man, showing us thatin the great kingdom Sabbath that there will not be one person that will not be able to walk the walk. Incomparison with today there are so many who have given up because of either difficulty ormisunderstanding of what is expected or how to walk, or maybe discouragement, but in the millennialSabbath reign the lame man shall leap as an hart. So too the healing of the man with the withered armrepresents those whose experience has dried up & withered by the roots. We may also notice that Heraised the dead on the Sabbath day, remembering that He is the resurrection & the life. especially of thatday as it will be the completed many membered Christ in action on that wonderful day. When He shall 5
  6. 6. Christ the Antidote Regarding Deathreign as King of Kings in the glory of His Fathers kingdom we shall also as Kings & Priests reign &minister with & as Him. And saviours shall come upon mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; andthe kingdom shall be the LORDS. Oba 1:21. This is all has to do with the sentence that is now being passed on this world & has been in action sincethe time that Jesus was lifted up - resurrected - from this world. The time now has now escalated & is fastdrawing to the time of increasing judgement krisis. There are some sad, but to the believer yet excitingtimes to happen, to he who is found in the will of God, & wonderful comfort is found in the followingverses. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures: he leads mebeside the still waters. He restores my soul: he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake.Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, - this realm of our lowered consciousness - Iwill fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. He prepares a table beforeme in the presence of my enemies: He anoints my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness andmercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.Psa 23:1-6. A Prelude Of The True Sabbath! And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There be some here of them that stand by, which shallin no wise taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God come with power. 2 And after six days Jesustook with him Peter, and James, and John, and brought them up into a high mountain – a transcendingexperience - apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them: 3 and his garments becameglistering, exceeding white; so as no fuller on earth can whiten them. 4 And there appeared unto themElijah with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. Mar 9:1-4. Revised. As with much of what Jesus said there were at least three depths involved, the literal, the spiritual & theprophetical. Outer Court, Holy Place, & The Most Holy Place. Also remembering that there was the feastof Passover, the feast of Pentecost & the feast of Tabernacles, if this was all one as some have suggestedthen God would have had one feast for all, but we are told that there was separation time between eachseparated feast, if it was in the wisdom of God to separate these feasts each with & for a special purpose,who are we to suggest any different. There is a definite important reason for every single act of God.Nothing is haphazard in the workings & wonderful plan of God. Ps 89:15 Amp. The above Mark 9 textalso contains a parable of what is to happen in our very near future. And after SIX DAYS meaning on theSEVENTH DAY - a metaphor of the seventh thousandth year millennial reign - Jesus took with Him thethree disciples - typifying an elect company - of the inner sanctum as it were, AFTER six days & not on thesixth day. He brought Peter, James & John UP into a HIGH MOUNTAIN APART BY THEMSELVES. Then Hewas transfigured - metamorphosed - before them. This is also prophetic regarding the experience the electsons are to have as in the birth of the man-child. Peter gives his own account of this in 2 Peter 1:16-19. For we did not follow cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power andcoming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 For he received fromGod the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This ismy beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased: 18 and this voice we ourselves heard come out of heaven,when we were with him in the holy mount. 19 And we have the word of prophecy made more sure;where-unto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawn, andthe day–star arise in your hearts: 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of privateinterpretation. 2 Pe 1:16-20. Revised. We have this sure word of prophecy & are exhorted to take heeduntil the DAY DAWNS & the DAY STAR Jesus Christ arises - in His fullness - in our hearts. When? In theseventh day, or the seventh thousandth year, which is the millennial or Sabbath day of the Lord, which willbe a very HIGH MOUNTAIN & TRANSCENDING EXPERIENCE to all who are fulfilling this role. 6
  7. 7. Christ the Antidote Regarding Death The Eternal Plan & Timing Is In Gods Wisdom & Power!We hear of some well meaning theories & statements being propounded as to why none have not yet madethe changeover. I realise that there are a lot of factors involved, especially in our own minds. I wish tohumbly suggest that it may have something to do with the plan of our eternal creator God & Hiswonderful wisdom & timing. Every man in his own order or time. As far a I am concerned He isworking all things according to His will & purpose which would include the time factor. I would not goso far as to blame others as to why they have not yet manifested. Please allow me to quote once againfrom George Hawtin. Now I know that to some that this may seem to be a contradiction in terms but Ipersonally see much wisdom in this small extract. Quote :- The natural mind does not know what isgood or what is evil. It does not know that the house of mourning is better than the house of feasting, orthat sorrow is better than laughter, for by the sadness of the countenance, the heart is made better. Ifsuch an evil as pain or sickness brings us nearer to God, then it is no longer evil, but good & is no moreworthy of rebuke. To the spiritual man the will of God is not a cross but a crown, for it is his daily delight.It is his meat & drink, his joy & satisfaction. Withhold a man from the will of God & he would die ofutter longing. He has learned the meaning of the text, As the heart pants after the water-brooks, so pantsmy soul after thee Oh God. -: Unquote. The will of God is not the same for everyone & it is not wise tojudge everyone by our own experience & opinion. A Contrite Heart! In the dense forest of words I was lost; In the letter of truth was tiredness & fear, But in thy Spirit only, are shade water & rest. Goldsmith.A few days ago I was meditating feeling a little sorry for myself as a certain acquaintance snubbed mebecause he through another friend had been shown one of our articles. Now usually this would not worryme too much but for certain reasons it did. As I was sharing this with the Lord, He suddenly spoke withinmy spirit & informed me that I was no better than the acquaintance in question. Then suddenly the wordsof the song came to me. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples if ye have love one toanother. I wish now to apologise to any that are reading these pages; to any who I have been short orhave not shown the grace that I should have in not returning good for evil, or maybe I should say for whatI have thought was evil. I have been in the way long enough to know that if I do not obey the leading ofthe Lord when He speaks that it will be detrimental to both myself & the ministry. I was also given insightas to why this has been so long in coming. Some of us have things in our background that have long beenforgotten & are many times hidden to us simply because we do not wish to bring them out of the closet &face them. May God bless you each & all. Reaching Maturity!A number of years ago I was given a dream, which shook me up & warned me that if I associated withthose that were not of son-ship that I would easily slip back & be easily snared & taken. The dream wasso real & poignant, that I very readily took heed & escaped the snare that was about to entrap me. I stillthank God for that dream. Lately since I have been seeing the reality of the bridegroom & the bride,namely the man-child & the woman in the wilderness. A strange new feeling for the bride has began tointerest me. These are the thoughts I am now receiving. When boys are young they dont as a rule want tomix with little girls & visa versa, the little boys like to play boys games & girls like to play with dolls orsuch like. But alas boys mature & so do girls & at a certain age maturity develops & attraction begins.Suddenly I am very interested in the woman in the wilderness. As we mature & we know our status & thelittle girls are no longer going to embarrass us because they are different, we now know who we are. Justrecently I had a God ordained experience, a friend of mine met some people who had not long startedsome meetings. He went to a meeting & was very impressed with the procedure & that they have gainedquite a few in a very short while. He thought that it would be good if I were to meet the man in charge. 7
  8. 8. Christ the Antidote Regarding DeathSo at about 3pm I meandered around there, just before I arrived - this man knew nothing about me as myfriend had never mentioned me - God spoke to this man & told him I am sending a man who is to preachthe message tonight, he no sooner received these words that I then drove around the corner & got out ofthe car, he asked me who I was, & I mentioned my friend. He said you are to preach tonight. Godimmediately gave me a three-fold theme. The upshot was that with a partly collapsed lung we brought amessage on reconciliation with an anointing with a difference. Everyone was amazed as I will be 78 nextbirthday. My friends God is about to do something NEW AGAIN. The woman is waiting in the wildernessas it were. I do not completely understand it. But many of us are no longer little boys & I am veryinterested in the woman. Are we understanding this!! I am not in fellowship there, but we are availableany-time. The Promised Land!I did so appreciate along with many others I am sure, the enlightenment that our brother J. Preston Ebygave us in his last article on the true meaning of the Promised Land being Christ. We are always learning- we alone do not have it altogether, but together we have it all - we are a wonderful corporate body withmany facets. In support to this thought I was considering only yesterday this powerful prophetical verse. Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people. 19 And the LORD will answerand say to his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and you shall be satisfied with it;and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen: 20 But I will remove far from you thenorthern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate,- the prince of this world shall be castout - with his face towards the east sea, and his hinder part towards the utmost sea, and his odiousscent shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he has done great - or terrible - things.Joel 2:18-20. Thus he shall come to his end, and none shall help him. Dan 11:45. I think that wecould also mention that the - bottomless pit - would also be a part of this deal. Amen. Again A Voice From The Past!Irenaeus: 130 to about 200 A.D. “ Bishop of Lyons. His nearness to the apostles makes his testimonymost interesting. Irenaeus did not believe evil would last forever. In his treatise Against Heretics, hewrote in Book 111, chap. 23, §6:” 1 Wherefore also He drove him (Adam) out of Paradise, and removed him far from the tree of life, notbecause He envied him the tree of life, as some dare to assert, but because He pitied him and desired thathe should not continue always a sinner, and that the sin which surrounded him should not be immortal,and the evil interminable and irremediable. --- Irenaeus. 2 Rom 8:20-21.
