  • 1. “Christ the Antidote, regarding Death” CHRIST THE ANTIDOTE REGARDING DEATH Part 4 BLAMELESS IN HIS SIGHT even ABOVE REPROACH.Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ beforethe foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated & set apart for Him) & blameless inHis sight, before Him in love. For He foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to beadopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of Hiswill [because it pleased Him & was His kind intent] [So that we might be] to the praise &commendation of His glorious grace (favour & mercy), which He so freely bestowed on us in theBeloved. Eph 1:4-6. Amp. In the Third realm of understanding we receive the mind of God more fully. When we begin to stopthinking through a mind of good verses evil & begin to function out of the tree of life & realise thatGod has no enemies. Why? He does not dwell in that realm of opposites, and because we dwell in Him& He dwells within us neither do we & need to dwell in that realm of opposites, neither do we need tohave any enemies. Sure He knows about Good & Evil but, HE DOES NOT DWELL IN THAT REALMthis is why He said My Kingdom is not of this World. It is a HIGHER Kingdom. Our mighty Godwho dwells in infinity is not so fickle as to have enemies, He is GOD. As we rise further into Him wetoo receive the same mind as He has; even the The mind of Christ. I remember someone saying thatthere is no message further than Pentecost we have the full gospel. If a person is in Passover & does not believe in the fullness of the spirit then he or she believes & teaches one feast, one experience one realm. If a person believes in the baptism of the spirit & has received a second experience in God, they believe in & teach two feasts two realms. All this is good & part of the plan of God. But I would invite you to become involved in the whole counsel of God. The third feast!! THREE FEASTS THREE REALMS the FULL GOSPEL. When Paul was caught up into the Third Heaven, he was caught up to the third realm & saw whatwas ahead. That is why he said I have not yet attained & that’s why he was still pressing toward thatmark; and may I also add for the prize of the HIGH CALLING. In the above first verse, we were chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, & it wasprophesied that we would be holy & blameless in His sight. That prophecy came to pass both atCalvary & the resurrection. Until we put on Tabernacle Spectacles we cannot see things from God’sperspective. I remember that when I first received the infilling of the spirit, it was as if a light wasturned on. The bible became a new book; I was viewing things through Pentecostal glasses as it were. From Gods point of view The end is declared before the beginning Isa 46:10. You see myfriends because God dwells in an entirely different realm to us, i.e.: the realm of spirit & infinity Hethinks quite differently to those of us who are still functioning in a realm that God is not in & that isGOOD & EVIL but my lovely wonderful brothers & sisters things are about to change, God is in theprocess right now of bringing men & woman up to His level into the same realisation as Himself.HOW? Why the Kingdom that Jesus more than intimated was & is in us, which has been lying dormantin His creation man; He is now bringing to life in its fullness, & a wonderful realisation that many of thepromises of God are already ours; & the culprit or adversary or serpent [which represents the carnalmind] has been deceiving us!--- Since Calvary & the resurrection, God Has not been so interested incoming down to our level, but the plan of God is to raise men up to being replicas of Himself; Elohimsas it were. John 10:34. Ps 82:6. Ps 8:5. Amp. The fact is we already are! We are coming into arealisation of that which already is; in the mind of God. 1
  • 2. “Christ the Antidote, regarding Death”BELOVED YOU DO NOT EARN ANY PROMISE OF GOD WE SIMPLY BELIEVE WHAT HE SAIDThe Christ who dwells within is Holy, He has never sinned & if you can but grasp this fact, this makesyou as Holy as He is. Why? Because He is your True identity or youre TRUE SELF, one who hasnever ever sinned. Too simple!! The Truth will set you free & the Truth is simple.This is God’s view & opinion on the matter; You are what Christ is, free gratis through FAITH &not by works, otherwise you will have reason to boast. And that would be called self righteousness.Once we grasp this we become what we believe, & that is as Paul said in 1Cor 12:12 a Christ or ananointed one. I once read a phrase written by a very spiritual man that said “desire is character.” Ihave pondered that little quip over the years & how true it is. For instance a man desires to become aboxer perhaps, he thinks like a boxer, mixes with boxers, acts like a boxer & soon enough he takes onthe pose of a boxer in every way, it becomes his whole character. We can take this in any walk of life.How much more in wanting to become a Christ man, a Christine, or a Christian. We eventually takeon His whole Character that is while the desire is there. IN OUR TRUE IDENTITY WE ARE, AND HAVE BEEN BLAMELESS FOR AGESChrist was slain before the foundation of the World. Or before the disruption of the cosmos, inthe mind of God. and that is the mind I am interested in, that is the mind I wish to be my mind. “Themind of Christ.” I have not come to condemn the world, but that the world through me might be saved.Incidentally the word might does not mean maybe. Strongs # 2480 Ischuo, 2479 Ischus, =forcefulness, ability, power, might, strength, prevail, can do, (not) could, be good, be whole, +much work. While we were yet sinners [in our mistaken identity], Christ died for us. Rom 5:8.God does not look on the outward appearance but on the heart. & that is where he sees the Pearl ofgreat price. Which is the Christ or your true identity. And this can also be termed as the seed [not seedsas of many] or a growing & arising of that ONE Son. All this is in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him & was His kindIntention]. (toward us) WHY? [So that we might be] to the praise & commendation of His gloriousgrace (favour & mercy), which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. ONE (who is JesusChrist). TO THE OBEDIENT; A WONDERFUL, COMFORTING, SATISFYING TRUTH Fore-ordination and Predestination.I must mention this, although some may not like this kind of talk, it is in the book. Not only do we leaveit there but we agree with it & teach it. Years ago I did not believe this For He fore-ordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as hisown children through Jesus Christ. Eph1:5. Here are two verses that blend in nicely with the above,that actually go hand in hand with each other. For those whom He fore-knew [of whom He was aware & loved before hand], He also destinedfrom the beginning [fore-ordaining them] to be moulded into the image of His Son [& share 2
  • 3. “Christ the Antidote, regarding Death”inwardly His likeness], that He might become the first-born among many brethren. And those whomHe thus fore-ordained, He also called; & those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, maderighteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He alsoglorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity & condition or state of being]. Rom 8:29-30. Is that not wonderful! The question arises. If He is the saviour of all men, why are only certain onescalled in the preceding verses? Well I am so glad that you have asked me such a question for I will bemore than delighted to give you the very simple answer; But EVERY man in his own order: Christthe first-fruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at His coming. 1Cor 15:23. K.J.V. Every man &woman have their own time. God, who is the Saviour of all men, especially of those that believe.1 Tim 4:10b. K.J.V. Please notice it states especially; not exclusively. The words of the verse of this poem should clarify the query. Not just revising some old plan, or notion, Nor altering a law or two; Reviving some long dead emotion, Among a favoured chosen few; But growth to full promotion, As every man He doth renew! “Dora Van Assen, ABRAHAM, COME OUT OF YOUR TENTAbraham, residing in your tent for too long restricts your spiritual vision. Your vision can go no furtherthan a few feet in any direction. Come outside & look at the stars; can you count them? This is a type ofthe number of children you will Father. As many as the stars are of the heaven so shall be your seed oroffspring. Where are they now? Hello offspring!! First the natural, then the spiritualLike Abraham, our Father wants us to move out of the limitations of our natural way of thinking into thespiritual way of perceiving things. We are so limited in our flesh we must have the spirit moving in ourlives to raise our spiritual vision. Isaiah writes in the 54th Chapter & verse 2. Enlarge the place of your tent, & let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not;lengthen your cords & strengthen your stakes, Let your thinking from now on become spiritual,without the limitation of carnality, & arise into the thinking of Godliness which is in Godhood &infinity. As God is infinite so is that part of us that was Created in His Image; Infinite! Spare not, don’t waitany longer, there is too much my friend to miss out on. This is no threat; only that it is too good to miss.For you will spread abroad to the right hand & to the left; & your offspring will possess the nations& make the desolate cities to be inhabited. V3. This is the promise to Abraham’s spiritual seed. Asthe last heading states, “First we live & experience the natural realm then at the time appointed weadvance to the Spiritual.” This is a type of coming out of our tent. GOD IS SEEKING TENTMAKERSMy tent (home) is taken by force & plundered, & all my (tent) cords are broken. My children aregone [as captives] from me, & they are no more; there is no one to stretch my tent any more & to setup my [tent] curtains. For the shepherds [of the people] have become like brutes, irrational & stupid,& have not sought the Lord or required Him [by necessity & right of His word]. Therefore they havenot dealt prudently & have not prospered, & all their flocks are scattered. Jer 10:20-21. 3
  • 4. “Christ the Antidote, regarding Death”Even though Jeremiah is alluding to the Tent of Moses [the K.J.V. states precisely Tabernacle] there isclearly a far deeper prophetic meaning to & for us TODAY. In a nutshell the Tabernacle is US it isGods type & plan for MAN both singularly & collectively. The three feasts were; Passover Pentecost Tabernacles The Tabernacle plan consisted of three sections. Outer Court Holy Place Most Holy Place We consist of:- Body. Soul Spirit We are the Temple of GodIn the above verse we read:- “My Tent (home) or temple is taken by force & plundered, & all mytent cords are broken.” The cords or ropes that hold or control the tent & keep it upright & in placeare broken. If there is one thing man needs today he needs to be held in check or controlled by the spirit& the truth of God, for He seeks those that would worship Him in spirit & in truth. In Psalm 2:2-3. We read, The Kings of the earth take their places; the rulers take counseltogether against the Lord and His Anointed One (the Messiah, the Christ). They say, Let us breakTheir bands [of restraint] and cast Their CORDS [of control] from us. As we stated above God is looking for Tentmakers or Tent-repairers in this day. The truth of theThird Realm, The Most Holy place, Tabernacles, The Manifestation of the Sons of God, The Man-child, these cords need to be not only put into place but the stakes driven down deep & the ropestightened. The tent needs to be stretched & the curtains need to be hung to show that there is adifference between the three sections & also that the Most Holy Place is surely accessible if we reallywant to enter. Amen! A sure solid word is needed. People also need to be told how to change the Kings& rulers & princes & gods that are in their lives. The King of Kings is willing to Rule & become ourPrince of Peace & take the place of the “god of this world.” I drew them with CORDS of a man, with bands of love, & I was to them as one who lifts up &eases the yoke over their cheeks, & I bent down to them & gently laid food before them. Hos11:4. The cords that God is drawing with in this case, of a man is through men, & the word that iscoming by men.--This word is not one of condemnation but a word that will lift men into a higher realm& will ease the yoke of the bondage & the pointing of the finger, condemnation & all that the fruit ofgood & evil has brought with it. It will also negate the plundering of our true Tabernacle which isyou & I my brother & sister. I love the last part of this verse, and I bent down to them & gently laidfood before them. How beautiful! There are many dedicated men & women that God is using todayto bring the ultimate of the truth of ourselves, & our Father; also it is through them that many times Heis laying food before us. For the shepherds [of the people] have become brutish, irrational & stupid, & have not soughtthe Lord or required Him [by necessity of right of His word]. Therefore they have not dealt prudently& have not prospered, & all their flocks are scattered. Jer 10:21. Bottom of Page 3. This verse speaks for itself, as we look about us & see the general state of the nominal church scene,we do not have to imagine too hard to realise that the above description is here now. But alas some are 4
  • 5. “Christ the Antidote, regarding Death”blind & wish to remain so. I was told recently that a census was taken in Melbourne Australia twoyears ago, that almost two thirds of confessed Christians are now meeting in their own homes. If we arenot keeping abreast with God’s present truth we will grow stale & become brutish. When the move ofPentecost took place in the early 1900s, it was not long before their opposers became lukewarm &worldly. WHY? God was doing a new thing & the opposers brought the truth against themselves. Inother words they were kicking against the pricks so to speak. Unfortunately they would & could notsee it & many fought it. Once again history is repeating itself, & sad to say it seems to be that man doesnot learn from History. It is now over 20 years since I began to walk in this truth & I am learning all thetime, I have been judged by many & of course that is to be expected. The Father is more real to me nowthan ever. God never stays still; when we become self satisfied & complacent & put our feet up so tospeak this is the time we need to seek God & ask. What next Father? -- I can tell you the main thing weneed are the facts, THE TRUTH; & that will be found only in JESUS CHRIST. What is the answer to this so called dilemma that religiosity has beguiled us into?Dear children of Abraham, maybe it’s the time to come out of our spiritually restricted tent & then wecan look up & about without hindrance, then I assure you it is a wonderful thing to experience clearvision. But know this, we must make the move & extract ourselves from the tent. God’s corrective hand I see As He gently looses me From the strangling pangs of death; Judging unto righteousness, Chastening only to bless, Giving me His life and breath. IT IS NECESSARY TO LOSE MORTAL SHACKLES TO GAIN SPIRITUAL WINGSRecently I heard someone say Mend my broken wings that I might be free. Spiritually it does notwork quite that way. God does not mend the natural; He gives us something new in exchange for theold. I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth & dies, it remains [just one grain; it never becomes more but lives] by itself alone. But if it dies, it produces many others & yields a rich harvest. Anyone who loves his life loses it, but anyone who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. [Whoever has no love for, no concern for, no regard for his life here on earth, but despises it, preserves his life forever & ever.] If anyone serves me, he must continue to follow Me, [to cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to my example in living &, if need be in dying] & wherever I am, there will My servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honour him. Jn12:24-26. As I am being led to write these things I am searching my own heart also. As we move out of the“in part realm,” understanding that this is part of the fruit of good & evil, we also desire to “lose ourmortal shackles.” To do this every part of the good & evil must go. The church in general teaches usthat the war is Good verses Evil. This is a fallacy, a delusion; we must be rid of both of them. Why?They are BOTH from the wrong tree. In the tree of life there are no opposites; only God the One. Theunderstanding we have because of our teaching, is that the good must prevail over the evil or the bad.Now in our old concept of thinking this was easy to grasp. Why? Well in our lowered thinking, the heroagainst the villain, John Wayne verses the bad guy, sickness verses health etc, etc. 5
  • 6. “Christ the Antidote, regarding Death”Even Dale Carnegie’s well meaning “Power of positive thinking.” is not included in The Secret Placeof the Most high. My Kingdom is not of this world. [or the worldly way of thinking].My Kingdom is from above. Jesus said. He did not mean geographically but a higher way of thinking.And that high way comes from the highest; King of Kings who dwells within us. Who alone hasimmortality [in the sense of exemption from every kind of death] & lives in unapproachable light.1Tim 6:16a. It is one thing for the EVIL to go in our lives, but what about the GOOD which is from the samefruit. The BAD ADAM is not the only one who has to go but the GOOD ADAM must die also & that isour self righteousness, “which are as filthy rags.” These things I am now going to mention depend onour attitude to, & why, we are practising them. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke, I don’t eat meat. I go tochurch every Sunday. Even if I fast with a view to recognition, this is Pharisee-cal. Judging others onsomeone elses one sided opinion, without knowing all the facts, or judging others in general. Maybe, Ithink that I am a little better than the next person, let each esteem the other better than themselves.Phil 2:3b. The hardest thing to die in my opinion is our reputation. But it must be dealt with. Our selfrighteous sacrifice is just not good enough. The real question I ask myself & this goes for all of us. “Do I want Gods best in my life?” As these things begin to penetrate our hearts we need to realise that we are already dead in Christ,when He died we died with Him. Rom 6:6-8. If we can but grasp it there is not one more thing thatneeds to be done it all happened at Calvary & at the resurrection. To go a little further it happenedbefore the foundation of the world. when in the mind of God the Lamb was slain. Rememberthat God does not live in time, He is infinite. All we really need to do is to believe it & it will work forus. GAINING OUR SPIRITUAL WINGSFor by one single offering He has forever completely cleansed & perfected those who areconsecrated & made holy. Heb10:14. What this verse is actually saying in the “Most Holy Place”way of understanding or “Gods point of view,” that even though Jesus tasted death for every man &all are included in His plan; What Christ accomplished at the resurrection was for every man, when it isour time to embrace it by faith, that is by “the faith of God” then our realisation that what was alreadyours from before the foundation then becomes our understanding & reality. Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them thatbelieve; for there is no difference. Rom 3:22. K.J.V. The Diaglott brings this out even clearer; toall, and upon all the believing; not for is a distinction. The very next verse tells us; V 23 For allhave sinned & come short of the glory of God. V 24 Being justified freely by His grace through theredemption that is in Christ Jesus; To further this thought; God, who is the saviour of all menspecially of those that believe. 1Tim 4:10b Once again, especially not exclusively. Time & circumstance are the determining factors as far as we are concerned. But as far as God is concerned it is a; A DONE DEAL FOR ALL, EACH MAN IN HIS OWN ORDER 1 Cor 15:23. For emphasis I will rewrite the first verse written in this issue. Eph1:4.Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ beforethe foundation of the world, that we be should holy (consecrated & set apart for Him) & blameless inHis sight, even above reproach, before Him in love. This verse shows that this is God prophesyingconcerning us before the foundation of the world; that we should be holy God who cannot make amistake pre-determined this. Let us rest in this and begin to soar using our spiritual wings. 6
  • 7. “Christ the Antidote, regarding Death” Keep well in mind that your true identity or self has never sinned in other words The Christ inyou has never mistaken His identity. In each of us lives the Holy One. If we can fully grasp & knowthis & meditate upon it deep within our soul until it becomes part of our thinking, we are then realisingtruth, and; THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREESo we are on a journey back to the Father or back to the realisation of our original identity in the Father& the Son who are one, back to EDEN. Before I continue with the next thought; we will ask ourselvesthe question once more. Who am I really? What & who is my true self ? Jesus the Christ said; I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE He also said;For as the Father has life in Himself & is self-existent, so He has given to the Son to have life inHimself, & be self existent. Jn 5:26. This is none other than the same Christ who is now in us, the same one who told us in Rom 8:23bWhen He spoke regarding the Holy Spirit [a foretaste of the blissful things to come] groan inwardlyas we wait for the redemption of our bodies from sensuality & the grave, which will reveal ouradoption (our manifestation as God’s sons). My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. The same thought is found in Psalm 82:6-7.I said, You are gods – indeed all of you are children of the Most High. But you shall die as men.For centuries human beings have been living below their status, enduring sickness, death & destruction.Why? Lack of knowledge! This of course means spiritual knowledge. This is all about to change, firstin the Sons of God, & then they will manifest & reveal their Christ-ship or their Anointing & Identity &take it to the world. THE UNVEILING IS TAKING PLACE IN US RIGHT NOW Oh son of Man! Disciplined to be God’s own perfect HEADSHIP COMPANY! Bringing now to one united whole, Flowing on to God’s predestined goal; Arise! Begin to take thy place, The First-fruits of the human race; Display God’s magnitude of grace, That will in time all men embrace. Dora Van Assen. 30/ 1/ 69Who are being guarded (garrisoned) by God’s power through [your] faith [till you fully inherit thatfinal] salvation that is ready to be revealed [for you] in the last time. 1Peter 1:5. This word revealedis from the Greek word “Apokalupto” & it means, (to take off the cover, disclose, reveal.)Weymouth uses the word unveiled. The final salvation or full salvation as in Heb 9:28 Amp. Reallymeans that God is lifting the cover on many things that have been kept secret to most since the time ofGenesis Chapter 3. Our whole religious well meaning but ignorant way of thinking has been from thewrong tree, most of us have not been aware of this. But now it is being disclosed. Good v Evil, Positivev Negative, Sickness v Health. Even our concept on how we are to be healed must be placed on the 7
  • 8. “Christ the Antidote, regarding Death”ALTAR, it must give way to a Higher Way. Our concept on overcoming must not be taught in the oldalmost condemning attitude. It is a matter of just KNOWING. The true way in God is not one thingagainst another. The concept now is IT IS SO. Nothing against anything. It is an arising in ourthinking. What God says IS A FACT. We are God beings & that makes us over-comers without anyCompetition Rivalry or Fight we rest in the fact that we are God’s children & what He says is so.Jesus said Resist not evil especially with the wrong Good. If that was His concept it must becomeours. Jesus taught us, Only God is good, & that Good is not the opposite of Evil. It is a different goodthan most well meaning Christians understand yet.We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment in the twinkling of an eye, at thelast trump: for the trumpet shall sound, & the dead shall be raised incorruptible, & we shall bechanged. 1 Cor 15:51b-52. In the twinkling of an eye, or the raising up of our spiritual vision. Isn’tthis what is happening right now ? We are told more than once in the book of the Revelation of JesusChrist to Come up higher. How ? In our thinking of course, in our realisation of Christ in us. At thelast trump. Or the seventh trumpet which is now sounding loud & clear. What though the radiance which was once so bright, Is now forever taken from my sight. Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower; We will grieve not, rather, find strength in what remains behind. "WORDSWORTH" FINDING STRENTH IN WHAT REMAINS BEHINDMoses was a mighty man of God, he represented the “Passover - Pentecostal era for his time. The bloodon the lintels represented the Passover & the death of the First-born. The Israelites crossing the RedSea represented the water of baptism, the cloud by day & the fire by night stood for Holy Spirit.1Cor 10:1-2. After going through an eventful journey when it came time to cross Jordan into thepromised land the people baulked, the reason being, murmurings & dissatisfaction from the majority ofthe leaders. As the story goes Moses had sent out Twelve leaders representing each tribe of Israel to spyout the promised land. When they returned ten of the leaders disagreed with two namely Joshua &Caleb. Because the faith of the ten was not mixed with the faith of those hearing, ie; Joshua & Caleb.[Diaglott] The Amplified says neither were they they united in faith with the ones [Joshua & Caleb]who heard (did believe). Heb 4:2. The main reason for the disagreement was there are giants in theland when it is time for us to move on in God or to come up higher it always means CHANGE, thisto many represents a giant, not very many people are keen on change; but if we are earnestly waitingfor & expecting Him & want only to “seek Him with our whole heart” we will be of the attitude MyLord & My God. Whatever you say! Whenever our Father wants us to move & raise us higher in ourthinking & especially into a promised land my dear brother & sister rest assured it is going to affect ourspiritual & maybe our physical comfort zone. So after spying out the land the ten came back & begin to bring an evil report to Israel. May I sayhere that all through the Bible stories, very rarely are the Majority used, God has always used theminority, Such was the discontent that the people not only wished to return to Egypt but wanted tostone Joshua & Caleb. Then the Lord stepped into the scene & said to Moses I will smite them &disinherit them. Moses then reasoned with God [which I believe is what God wanted, & wished to seethe reaction of Moses] & God heard him. As punishment the disobedient were penalised for 40 yearsuntil they all died off. Whereas they all could have gone into the promised land at that time, there was await that could have been avoided. Added to this, no one over 20 years old would enter except Joshua& Caleb. Why? One word UNBELIEF. Why did God choose Joshua & Caleb above all those who wererefused. Verse 24 of Ch 14 But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit & has followedMe FULLY, I will bring into the land into which he went, & his descendants shall possess it, 8
  • 9. “Christ the Antidote, regarding Death”If we do not already know it, the decisions we make today will affect those who follow us tomorrow!This account is found in Numbers Chapters 13-14. I must mention, that as Moses represented Passover& Pentecost. So Joshua represents Tabernacles, the crossing of Jordan represents the washing away ofall our religiosity & wrong concepts mainly that of duality or good & evil this I believe is happeningright now, for those who have ears to hear. I sometimes wonder if it were not for some, that we would be further ahead. But then I realise thatGod is always right on time. But remember that it is our decision & that many are called but few arechosen. That my beloved brothers & sisters really sobers me. Let us not forget Joshua & Caleb wentover Jordan & into the promised land. If God has called you, & you fully desire his will, you willovercome & enter the Promised land for our Great Saviour & King prepared this for people like you &I. You doubt it; look at the disciples just ordinary people. But Oh what God can do! SO!! WE WILL FIND STRENGTH IN WHAT REMAINS BEHINDSaul the son of Kish represented Pentecost. He was anointed by Samuel the Prophet on the day of thefeast of Pentecost.1Sam11:15-12:17. David represented Tabernacles. He was a King, Priest & Prophet.After this I will return, & will build again the Tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; & I willbuild again the ruins thereof, & I will set it up: Acts 15:16, K.J.V. This verse is taken from the lastchapter in Amos, which is an end time book, the last chapter especially is an end time chapter. ThisTabernacle here is not referring to the temple of Solomon. This is the tent that David put on Mt Zion (aportable tent) after he took home the Ark of the Covenant, Which is quite a story in itself. All that wasin the tent was the Ark & the Shekinah Glory which dwelt in & upon the Ark. This is what our Father isinterested in; our Secret Place. This is where He wants us to dwell; Within. Notice that in this casethe word Tabernacle is from the Greek word [skene Strongs #4633= tent or cloth, habitation,tabernacle]. In 2 Cor 5:1. Paul is referring to our Tabernacle which is from the word [skenos #4636= ahut or temporary residence, the human body (as the abode of the spirit).”] Incidentally our word skin isderived from the Greek words skene & skenos. Now this Tabernacle of David that is to be raised up or rebuilt is a type of what we are seeingtoday & equates in every way with us. We represent the hut, residence, habitation, the abode of thespirit or Tabernacle of David, & as we finish with the in-part realm & come into the Love that neverfails we will not need any-more types & shadows or crutches so to speak, all that we will need is thekingdom of God which is within. The question I hear is. When is this going to take place? It is takingplace right now if you want it to. Christ has come, is coming & shall come. The whole event is takingplace in us. In the raising up of our spiritual understanding. It is beautiful when we realise that weare growing up into the Head. This my beloved brother & sister is not for the religious, this is comingfrom the secret place of the most high. A lot happened between Saul & David. Saul who represented Pentecost, persecuted David who is atype of Tabernacles, constantly, & this eventually caused his downfall. Jonathan who loved David somuch, should have been with him & his motley crew, [who eventually became great men of valour] &an army to be reckoned with. Unfortunately because of his attachment to his father (organisation,denomination) he never ever fully committed to Gods best for his life & died in battle with Saul hisfather. All of these are lessons for us to learn & apply to ourselves. The whole crux of what both [Moses, Joshua & Caleb,] & [David, Saul & Jonathan,] is saying; isthat God is always moving on. There is always more in God. He is raising us up to be overcomers & toshare in the responsibility of Ruler-ship. 9
